Supplement and Foods you Take

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I thought it would be a interesting topic to bring up supplements and foods we take to deal with our issues. I am going to omit exact dosages on these as I had to adjust them according to my needs, less on some, more on others and on pretty much all of them break the dosage up and take it in 2-3 parts throughout the day to avoid the slumps.  Also my diet is a low carb diet high in fats and proteins, I have multiple odd allergies and do not digest carbs well.  NOTE this is just off the top of my head there will be constant edits as I recall others and perhaps notations on them.

I take a good multi and sometimes add a seperate Biotin supplement that has some vitamin C in it.

When first diagnosed I also took a sublingual B12 as I had heavy nervous system impact.

On the rare times when I get glutened I take liquid Pepto to deal with any stomach pain and if I absolutely need to leave the house Immodium. I will also take an anti-inflammatory to help the joint and muscle pain.

I learned I had to be careful with some supplements when I started having odd symptoms from overdoing them.  I now make sure I take all supplements with me to the doctor when he is checking my levels and stop them for a week before the appointment so he gets an accurate level.

I love Pumpkin seeds and have looked high and low for some that I like (I used to eat them out of the bins at the grocery store). I finally found some I like at Nuts.com so they are my new best friend.

We also buy the Wonderful Pistachios at Costco in bulk

I buy fiber supplements at our local grocery store

I use brand name Advil for headaches, body aches. 

I buy everything else at our local grocery store in Texas, HEB. They are awesome and have a great supply of GF foods - although mostly I make meals out of whole foods.

Supplement wise I added

Jarrow Bromelain Enzymes (2 with each meal)
Papaya Enzyme Complex (4-6 with each meal)

I'm wondering how the psyllium husk in the bread makes you feel?  We follow SCD because of my daughter's SIBO and have steered clear of harsh fibers. But she's doing really well right now so I'm tempted to add the Julian's bakery paleo bread.  Thoughts?

Honestly this was the reason I ignored the bread for years, my dietician said that using psylilum husk on a daily basis was bad. He compared it to scrubbing your intestines with a loofah sponge, and said it might be alright a few days a month but not daily in my case.     But  I find when cooking with it, it seems less harsh on my gut, I use it in my cheese sauce in very small amounts seems stewing it made it softer on my gut, And THEN thought perhaps the bread is alright, seems it is. They use the psylilum husk in place of gums as a binding agent, and mixing it in the batter and cooking it seems to make it much easier to digest. Only thing I can say is be careful not to over toast the bread, lol I sometimes do and end up soaking the pieces in my coffee, porridge, or soup.   I really love how easy it is on my stomach, FIRST time in my life I can recall ever eating bread and not feeling heavy at all hours later. I am always making my childhood favorite with it of cinnamon toast. I personally split the loafs up into slices and freeze them this way I can put stuff on them before toasting straight from the freezer. From the freezer, I spread Nutivia Butter Flavored coconut oil on them, both sides, sprinkle a blend of pyure or xylitol mixed with cinnamon over one side and toast it. Then put more on it lol. So great in the morning with a savory breakfast. Other times I toast them and make open sandwiches with avocado, egg whites, and a salmon bacon or a meat sub when I can afford it.
