I was lucky enough to have a consultation with Dr Peatfield last week.
He suggested, given my history, that I was likeley born with a thryoid issue that's gone undetected for 46yrs. He suggested that the many miscarriages and other pregnancy complications was the result of this.
After an operation went horribly wrong, thrusting me into a menopausal state after my miracle baby, I've spent the last 12yrs battling fatigue, hormone imbalance (which dr's deny despite the clear genova diagnostics test explaining about my crashing oestradiol levels) panic attacks (which have trailed off), anxiety (which has not trailed off), osteopenia, SVT's (sudden ventricula tacycardia), headaches/migraine, heavy cycle...i could go on...
I realise that I didn't really help myself by going vegan. Food is a psychological thing, so as a highly sensitive person, I went vegan for 6yrs. Much to the horror and disgust of other vegans, I am no longer vegan or even vegetarian because I had to weigh up if it was more important to save another animal or to care for my own body and existence. My D3 levels were on the floor 30nmol, calcium, iron and magnesium, despite eating a full and varied diet. I just want to point out that over coming the horror images that those poor creatures go through was so tough. I still feel guilty with every bite, but I have a family that needs me too.
I started to feel a little better when I started to eat a 'regular' diet, but still hugely sensitive to the cold, brain fog, anxiety, heart palps, sometimes svt (sudden ventricular tacycardia- very scary but I know how to stop it now), teary, upset stomach...again, I could go on.
I cried when Dr P confirmed my hormone issues and added that my adrenals were likely in trouble too. Just to be heard, acknowledged and to have it confirmed that I'm not going mad.
Temps low as 35°C, and 55bpm.
I've had lots of blood tests but they never tell me the actual values (other than the vit d3), they always just say 'normal'.
I've had so many tests for this that and the other and all come back 'normal', or 'Nothing Abnormal Detected'.
And yes, the confrontation with my dr and in fact, dr's in general has been heated out of frustration and disregard.
Dr P advised Adrenavive ii to start with for 14 days, Metavive i after 14 days and obce thise were comfortable, wellsprings 20/1 cream.
Like so many others on here, I have a very sensitive constitution. The slightest 'overdose' and my body goes crazy, I can't function and the anxiety and oanics go through the roof. So, understandibly, i am a little concerned about trying all these new things. However, I did try 20/1 previously which just made me a) pile on weight and b) made me angry. I accept that it may be be ause it wasn't being absorbed properly due to thyroid issue and may even have been too low a dose.
I just wanted to ask if anyone else had experienced taking all three together, and what are your results?
Again, I know we're all different and your result may be different to how mine play out. However, any tips on how you dealt with changes would be great.
Thanks in advance
