I want to try some supplmenets for support and wellbeing. I feel delepeted after excerise, and have poor general health, insomnia, stress easily, brain fog, and low energy etc. I don't have pre-existing physical medical condition except from anixeity and depression. I have taken psychotropics in the past and I currently take olonzapine. I can't do much school or work. Docs said they can't do much besides psychotropics.
Has anyone tried MaxGXL. This product increases Gluthione in our bodies. I also want to try supplement with SOD (superoxide dismuarse), Alpha Lipoic Acid, CoQ10, and Catalase
I would suggest you take a good, food grade vitamin with emphasis on the "B" vitamins. The "B" vitamins are the "nerve" vitamins and they can definitly help with the depression. The drugs the doc has you on can actually deplete the B vitamins, thus making you feel worse. A good brand is called "Standard Process Labs" I take them and they are the only ones that do not give me a tummy ache.
Also, watch your diet, you could have hypoglycemia, (low blood sugar) this can make you feel tired and run down and bring on the symptoms you wrote about. Avoid sugar and processed foods and try to eat fresh organic veggies and fruits and a lot of pure water.
I take multi-vitamin mineral by centrum, and I notice nothing. Yes, the meds I on can deplete B-vitamins.
What can I do about hypoglycemia? I already watch my diet, avoid sugar and processed foods. I can't afford to eat organic fruits or vegetables. I eat some organic veggies and friuts in summer because they are cheaper than fall and winter and are locally grown. Veggies and fruit we get in Canada in Fall and especially in winter are from US, with lots of pesticides, herbsides and organic ones are toooo expensive.
I already drink lots of water, when you mean pure water, do you mean water that is not treated with chlorine? The water supply in our city is river water treated with chlorine. According to city officials our tap/drinking water has very little chlorine. I also use brita to filter more junk out.
I am struggling with my health since 2005. Its been 5 years now. I am 23 now. I have made all the possible healthy lifestyle changes and they are helping but progress too slow. I am out of school and can't work becos of my problems. That's why I am looking into other natural supplements and therapies (acupuncture helped a little) to help myself, but being catious at the same time of any dangerous side effects, double checking info etc.
My gp and other gps and psychriatist are no help. They just pyschotropics and anti-pyschotics for me. Also they say take any supplements you want, just look over information before buying and consuming any product, that I already do.
Yes, suggest me some yoga pranyams to improve my general health. I am desparate now. It will be better if you send me some websites with videos, so that I don't have to read text and do yoga, then read text. Better to just follow a video.
The Yoga Pranayam will help to improve general health.There are no side effects, only benefits. Do it with concentration, with eyes closed.Best time is before breakfast.Start with anulom vilom first for a few days, and then do the full set of pranayam.
