article " feeling deficient"
Is there a link to this article, please?
hi - can't seem to find this on the NAH website. do you have a link?
the title of the article was "feeling deficient" I got it in a email they sent and I have deleted it.....
HI Jacrjacr I take magnesium l threonate, vitamin D3 10000iu, vitamin k2 mk7 iron, coz my levels just won't go up ( I am 60, but not menapausal, had bloods done to prove it, still regular as clockwork), iron, copper and zinc, and astaxanthin(12mg in one dose).
The first 3 supplements work synergisticly, you shouldn't take one, without the other, puts the calcium into the bones, where it should be, and not building up plaque in the arteries. This is why older people on calcium and statins get osteoporosis, more hips broken than ever now because of what the docs prescribe, without due attention to the other supplements needed to keep you healthy.
good info lang...thanks for sharing!! I know vitamin c is necessary for iron absorption.....and one of the forgotten vitamins....I was taking everything else but vit c.....and b complex...YOU ARE SO BLESSED NOT BEING MENOPAUSAL...it effects everything .
Hi jacrjacr, thanks for the reply, check out raw organic Cacao, I drink it with a couple of heaped tsps of coconut milk, and pure stevia for sweetening, think I might try it without tonight, just to see if I can drink it.
Take now 1 tsp daily of Extra virgin cod liver oil from Rosita, no after fishy burps, more expensive, but well worth it, if you can manage to buy it.
Love my ceylon cinnamon, with a bit of hot milk, and some stevia as well.
A slice of pineapple daily, including the core, where most of the good stuff is, check it out. Very important for anti-inflammatory, and anti-swelling, as that's what we have to suffer with our hypo. This is packed with vitamin C.
I would love to hear, if you have any health tips, coz at the mo, I think I'm as good as I can be, of course I now self-medicate with T3, which for me was the missing link.
I feel that I don't have enough information from my doctor or nurse when I go for my blood tests to check my levels. You would think I didn't have anything wrong with me as I am not informed of any of my results. I wouldn't know what normal levels looks or sounds like. Are there special doctors that you can go to for advice or help on thyroid issues as I feel my doctor is no help what so ever...!
I always tell them I need a copy of my labs.....and I keep them...this is the major thing thathas helped bec I haven't been to a dr yet that understands it....even one that even has it....which shocked me
have confirmed hashimotos, confirmed vitimin d deficiency, b12 came back normal, adrenal function normal...
