I have this really great book that goes through a lot of different vit/min/herbs/supplements to help with the symptoms of N... Along with different times of the day to eat certain food and when to take the vit/min ect... What makes it even more interesting is it tell what each supplement helps with and how/why it helps.
Once I move into my new house and get settled I plan on following more of their suggestions, along with Xyrem (sorry no healthy alternative for someone who can achieve SWS on my own)
I believe along with natural remedies, good food, and exercise... things will be better, but sorry no cure... cant reverse brain damage! Why can people not understand this!
Any how, I promise I will post about this but its going to be a dozy of a post and I gotta say I am not up for it right now! lol
Here is what I have done so far,
Calcium + Magnesium 2,000 mg, before bedtime (if not on Xyrem) I take it 3 hours before bedtime- it has helped with my shakes!
Omega-3 fish or flax
b complex + extra b6 200mg
Vit C w/ bioflavonoids 2,000-6000 divided doses
Vit D 400 mg
Vit E 200 a day or 400 every other day
Take supplements with 8oz glass of water to aid with movement and digestion
Mid-day meats, cheese, nuts, seeds, soy
Anytime- leafy green veg, sea veg, and brown rice
Evening meal- carbs! (fruits, veg, legumes, whole grains, and pasta)
Avoid Alcohol and sugar
and 45 min nap mid afternoon - I don'g get to do this but the book says to.
These are just the things I have started to do and I gotta say Ive been feeling better then I have in awhile... no if my stomach would just get with the program!!
Other things I have not tried but are suggested
Chromium picolinate 100mg
free form ameino acide
l-glutamin- empty stomach with vit b6 100mg and vit c
nicotinamide adenine dinucleotied
octacosanol 100 mg
you can see why I havent tried any of those, cuz I need to figure out what the hell they are! and make sure they can go with my other meds.
Gutukola and st. johns wort (not to be taken with stimulants) and ginkgo bioba
Thats all Ive got for now
