my supplements

Sunday, August 03, 2008

ok so i wanted to post the list of supplements that i take since i am not on any of my prescriptions.

150mcg 3 pills 2x a day
natural source of Iodine, good for my hypothyroidism

300mg 2 @ bedtime
Helps alleviate symptoms of arthritis, promotes restful sleep, enables body to reserve & sustain energy, is also an ayurveda herb, also called indian ginseng.

500mg 1 pill 2x a day
helps lower blood pressure, movement of potassium, magnesium and sodium, helping maintain cell integrity, antioxidant, helps reinforce immune system, strengthens heart muscle, stabilizing heart rhythm, prevent blood clots, helps guard against diabetes.

500mg 1 pill 2x a day
lowers cholesterol, helps in weight loss, fat burning properties.

Vit E
1 pill 1x a day
Aides in absorption of iodine, relieves leg cramps, helps protect against approx. 80 diseases.

My medical conditions are hypothyroidism, arthritis (hips, knees, hands), heart palpitations, depression, trouble going to sleep and staying asleep, lower back pain due to disks, upper back, shoulder and neck pain (probably from big boobs, what i wouldn't give to get a reduction!). I also have a lot a heart disease and diabetes in my family. My daughter had type 1 diabetes.
So this is what i do, i know it can not replace a doctor but until i am either making better money or obtain health insurance it's better than doing nothing. These are also all the reasons why i started here, to set goals and hopefully reach them. I am tired of feeling like i'm 75 when i'm only 36. I can do better than this!
