Before I knew to gluten free my life was saved by supplements. Special tests determined exactly which nutrients were needed for me. Interestingly enough, magnesium, potassium, vitamin B, were among them. They were doctor recommended supplements and a high quality product designed for max absorption.

By life saved I mean: My orthostatic blood pressure had an unhealthy curve. When I rose up after lying down the blood pressure would plummet and stay down. My blood pressure was 180/115 when resting. The supplements brought the orthostatic blood pressure to a normal curve. This meant it started low, went up as I stood, and recovered after a minute or two. Over time, my resting blood pressure came down to 110/70. I wouldn't recommend just supplements, and not going gluten free, but high- quality- supplements, carefully, selected can do wonders.

Huh, I didn't post this today?!  It is my work, though.  ???  Anyway, no wonder that I am sold on supplements.

Update:  No more need for adrenal support!  When I first saw the functional medicine nurse a few years back, I had just begun to take adrenal support supplements.  People warned me these were habit forming and my tolerance and dependence on them would increase.  Still, my providers all 3 concurred that I needed them.  I had been on up to 6 per day two summers ago.  Last summer, (after allergy treatments) we decreased to 2 per day The adrenals  could be assessed by orthostatic blood pressure tests.  Anyway, several months back my naturopathic doctor determined that these were no long necessary for me.  I placed my bottle in the freezer and went on without. .  Today, I decided to try to get some more objective proof that these were not needed.  I had my chiropractor check my orthostatic blood pressure.  The LORD has had mercy on me!  My scores were good!
