I have been taking Ashwagandha, Turmeric, Amal powder and Brahma supplements. I am scheduled for a colonoscopy in three days. It is a preventive screen. I last took them a few days back. Should I reschedule my colonoscopy?

I just read your query. You can go for your colonoscopy because these are all herbal supplements and as you have stopped all these, they will be flushed out of the body in a week. After colonoscopy, if you are re-scheduled for other investigations, then do not start these till then. Even if you are not, then you can take after two to three weeks.
Thank you for your prompt reply. Just to clarify, I last took them a few days back and my colonoscopy is in five days after that.

Ayurvedic medicine further have categories. If any Ayurvedic medicine contains minerals or metals, that needs to be stopped two weeks before any procedure. But as all these are herbal supplements, you can go for it. If you wish to restart all these again, then do it after two to three weeks.
