Oh Yes Dot! My son calls me the human chemical meter. My body is so low in cortisol that any untoward chemical that hits my fragile system will cause unpleasant effects. Not just gluten but ¾’s of all foods all processed and some whole and wholesome food I cannot enjoy anymore. I have one prescription I need a substitute for soon, Levothyroxine (called generic for Synthroid; Synthroid does hurt me with a few bad side effects and is synthetically processed T4 thyroid replacement), I cannot have any over-the-counter pain reliever. I have taken large chunks of time in my personal time to find out what I can and cannot eat, or medicines I cannot use. I must now in this low state use clean pharmaceutical grade nutrients and supplements. I am thrilled to find clean omega-3 fish oil concentrates at stronger standardized levels so I do not have to take 6-9 each day with an after taste. This other steam treated type helps to ensure quality. My last over-the-counter omega-3 capsule also contains soy oils along with the fish. Soy in most forms is not recommended for persons with a thyroid condition or my adrenal fatigue. The last brand I was using was hit with the PCB claim too. I switched. I start my new bottle tomorrow. Let’s see if they are really tasteless burp free oils as the bottle claims.
The greatest love story is your own. If you miss out of life to the fullest; they win. You are the happiness master of your own mind. Thought is an active dynamic energy to harmonize and corrolate good. Clear all paths to love thru forgiveness. I may not recognize the significance until some time later. Is my resistance to change really that strong? Impatience does not provide the time to learn the lesson; Awaken new ways to approach the dissolving of a problem;
I noticed yahoo news yesterday regarding a lawsuit against some fish oil supplement companies for being contaminated with PCBs. Some of these products I think indicate on the label just the opposite. The FDA does not regulate supplements. I don't know how the CA lawsuit came to be, but I'll be watching for updates with interest as I take fish oil and have for years (Carlson's and Nordic Naturals. Dh, on the other hand, has taken Nature's Bounty, one of the brands in the suit).
Here's a link to a thread with some more information. I don't have time to activate the links within this thread, but the information is helpful if you're interested.
Re: other supplements, I made mention in some other thread about how I belong to www.consumerlab.com . Supplement companies voluntarily send their supplements for viability/accurate dosage. It's helpful, but often my brands are not represented. Nonetheless, their report for magnesium supplements divulged that Peter Gillham's Natural Calm powder had above recommended lead contamination. I've been using it for years. So, that was helpful. I just switched to TwinLab until I could order Carlson's online. TwinLab's fish oil is part of the PCB contaminant lawsuit. I guess I could call them; think they'd tell me if their product is contaminated?
