Schedule for supplements

*See post 'WHY: Vitamins, Minerals & Herbs' for reasons why I am taking each of these!!

**Click on each link to view product on company's website. These are just the ones I chose, sticking to what is not derived from an animal, comes from a clean and reputable company with good business ethics, etc. You can find most of these at your local health food store or online.

***It may seem like a lot, but the side affects of these are not long-term liver damage, death, etc! The side effects are things like more energy, better sleep, longevity, etc. Yay!

@Christa - Your list looks a lot like an older one of mine! Okay, the two things that I think you need to add/change: 1.) UP UP UP your vitamin C (It is an anti-oxidant, helps with cell regeneration, helps with collagen synthesis, which is what we have a problem with, etc. It has been recommended by EVERY doc and geneticist I have ever seen. They wanted me to take up to 15,000, so or as close as I can get without it affecting my stomach.). *Take as much as you can without it giving you diarrhea. Your vitamin D units look good, but you may want to look into upping your calcium intake (maybe double that?). Oh - and for acne...does that combo work for you? I tried everything on the market. NOTHING worked. Finally, I bought ProActiv (which I didn't like when I was a teen and tried it), and whoa! My skin has never looked better. :) Just a thought, too. If yours work for you, sweet! :D

What do you notice the biggest difference with? I don't have EDS but I have chronic bodily pain and fatigue. I want to treat the pain and low energy without medication.

Numerous companies isolate the elements from the turmeric herb then concentrate them. This supplement does not; it uses the principle of whole food so as to preserve all nutrients. which turmeric supplement is best
