Does anyone on here use country life vitamins? Is sunflower leitchin ok, it's one of the ingredients just didn't know if it contained gluten. Also does anyone take the sundown multivitamins it says certified I just wanted to get others input. And one last thing is there a probiotic that's dairy free and gluten-free that is a mainstream cheap brand. I'm cheap. Oh I forgot do people on here eat udis brand with no problem. Sometimes when I read the internet I start to get anxiety and get overwhelmed because some say things are bad with hidden gluten and some say it's fine. I know everybody is different. I eat just whole foods but am ready to expand. Any advice on any brands would help. Nothing too overwhelming. Can we keep it simple?
Went in they took my vitals, had me change into a gown, hooked me up to a IV, oxygen nose thing, and a machine to monitor my heart and BP. Wheeled me in had me lay on my side and used anesthesia via the IV to put me to sleep. Came out of it feeling great, no issues and felt oddly better rested then I do with a whole nights sleep.
All in all I would say the fasting, cleanse, and all the prep is 8-10 times worse the the procedure itself. I had no after effects with my digestive tract either.
