hey girly! just read a couple of your recent posts.
i'm sorry things arent looking up for you (
i actually just got some b vitamins yesterday from target
this is the exact one i got: http://www.amazon.co...tress b complex
not sure how easily absorbed it is or anything.. but i got it cause i'm not currently eating any meat
ive been following a low glycemic/ partially raw food diet
and regardles of my skin.. ive been feeling really good physically.
but i think it also has to do with "symplex f" i take it with every meal and i just feel alive. i dont want to recommend it, maybe you should ask your doctor if youre interested. but it helps with pcos by supporting vital organs, and it has just boosted my energy.
i really do recommend trying to stick to raw foods.. my skin feels softer.. and my eyes are even changing color which is crazy to me lol
theyre getting lighter, and i have dark brown eyes. not super dark, but i notice them getting lighter, its kinda neat
and i dont know if its just placebo but i just feel... healthier and stronger.
im losing too much weight though so i went out and bought soy milk and walnuts for fat lol
and i need to work out cause i never do
but yeah i only wanna recommend eating raw.. because we already know that things that work for me, dont necessarily work for you the same way
but i dont think you can go wrong with raw food.. my skin isn't perfect yet lol but its more manageable. somehow..
hi dear! Glad you are feeling healthier and stronger! Sounds like your diet and supplements are working for you, hopefully you found the right combo It's so weird that your eyes are changing color, wow! That's a cool side effect haha. Symplex f sounds awesome, I'll ask the endocrinologist about it. I was referred to someone who specializes in bio identical hormone treatment, which sounds more agreeable than synthetic hormones and birth control. I'll start with a natural, yam-derived progesterone cream and see how that works before moving on to bio-hormones. I'm soooo glad I didn't take any of the pills they wanted to give me (e.g. spiro, birth control) because those can make low progesterone even worse! Sometimes doctors' apathy amazes me - they sound so confident about "magic pills" and then they don't like to admit they were wrong!
I'm trying to stick to a mostly raw foods diet too.....it's hard! I love walnuts, but they are so expensive, so I usually end up buying almonds instead. But walnuts are far better nutritionally. Are the b vitamins working for you? I read that b6 and b12 can cause acne, but I think it depends on the person. Hopefully they'll work for us! People say soy causes allergies, but for me I don't think I have that issue, especially with unsweetened soy milk.
It's best to always avoid synthetic vitamins, so I would go with Vitamin Code's B-Complex. That's the one I take!
Thanks for the recommendation! That looks good, the only thing I wasn't sure about in the ingredients is the yeast...is that safe, if I suspect I have leaky gut/ candida? Also, what do you think of megafoods' b-complex? It's derived from raw foods for greater absorption, like vitamin code.
i derma had prescribed me zevit(which has vit b complex + c + zinc sulphate) all of which are said to be positive for acne/oily skin.
I heard of zevit...is it working for you? My derm wouldn't prescribe it to me because she was convinced my acne was "just" hormonal, and recommended birth control. sheesh!
Supplements: inositol, DIM [not as frequently now!] digestive enzymes [don't need them every day anymore, only on cheat days], herpanacine & vitamin C with rose hips/ low acid [not every day], regular sun exposure for vitamin D3, superoxide dismutase (SOD) enzyme supplements, magnesium citrate [sometimes].
Lifestyle & Skin Care: Low histamine diet, avoiding unnecessary stress, balancing skin's PH (using Image Ormedics), using distilled/ filtered water to wash face, occasional high frequency facials...
