I am a big buyer of supplements but never take them or take them for a day or two only and stop. I have probiotics sitting in my fridge($45 a bottle) for over a year along with other vitamins etc. I don't know what I am thinking when I buy it but I get carried away. I hate taking any supplements. The prenatal vitamins I was taking left me with a horrible stomach pain no matter when I took it so I rarely take it these days. A couple of weeks ago after reading "Ad.renal F.atigue..." book suggested by Sew I went on another round of supplement shopping. I bought the following
Na.tural Calm Magnesium
The only thing I have taken is the Magnesium for a couple of times. The others are sitting looking at me. My stomach can't handle pills well. Over the weekend I may have eaten something funny because my GI issues are flaring up. I think I need to heal before challenging my already weak stomach with multiple supplements. I am tempted to take the probiotic but scared of what it would do to my stomach. I hate plain yogurt and since getting off sugar I can only take a few spoon of sweetened Yogurt. It is just way too sweet for me. I need to suck it up and starting eating plain yogurt or take probiotics. I know a lot of IF blogger take a lot of supplements. Please any one reading let me know if there is a secrete to taking suppliments? Any thing you do to minimize the stomach aches?
On other news I had my first blood drawn for the cycle long hormonal test. I went to Qu.est Diag.nostic close to my work and I wasn't impressed. They are so unprofessional and slow. I am keeping my fingers crossed that they don't mess up my orders.
