Hi all back again - no proper internet access for a coup,e or so days!
I was shopping yesterday in a different town. Went in the Pharmacy as I was passing - I wanted to buy some Vit B12, VitC, and/or Probiotic to supplement with. Thought ok I'll ignore my doc and normal pharmacist who both had said last year don't supplement with extra vitamins!
I've just edited and deleted a few words I hadn't put there before.
Yesterday the pharmacist immediately asked if I had a THYROID PROBLEM as soon as I asked for the B12 and Vit C + probiotic and when I said yes, he said NO, to me supplementing B12. I was gobsmacked at that and didnt even ask why, because by now I was just thinking things over. He then, unasked offered me a pack of very similiar ampoules to Arko ones I am just finishing, of ginseng, Royal Jelly, Ginger and Guarana (?) which I've yet to look up.
I had not told him then that I was taking the Arko supplement (no Guarana in the Arko and the ginger is new to me After studying all the box said on it - then I told him myalso of my other blood cell problems, immunity etc. and said I was coming to end of 2nd month of treatment and had to stop for 10 days.
He said, to start the new product if I buy it, after the 10 days. However when 1 doctor and 2 qualified pharmacists say don't supplement B12 it gives me pause for thought!
What do they know that we don't?
My thoughts are - LevoThyroxin does make us lose weight, and if we have too many of the wrong food substances in our bodies, our Normal or medicated thyroxin, will not metabolise those wrong substances, also if we have other underlying conditions (as I have) we become autoimmune.
I have said previously the Arko has made me feel better, no fatigue, appetite not suppressed any more. My metabolic system has been helped by my levo dosage being better/correct again? My weight has stabilized. I have more energy and do think more clearly without anxiety or depression. Yes I get frustrated at my different conditions, I also have other housing and computer problems, so I don't sit here all day every day, thinking about my thyroid with those other things going on also.
