I feel at a loss for what to do. Everytime I start something new, I feel better for a day or two but then I feel bad again. I don't know if it's that I'm not absorbing anything properly? I've taken zinc for 1 year, yet my labs show I'm low, I take 900mg of Mag malate, but my labs results are really low. I've been taking the adrenal herbs for over a month and haven't noticed much of a difference, however, others seem to show improvements within days. I've been taking 1 tbsp of ACV before meals, but that seems to only be making me bloated. Is there any other way to increase absorbtion? I'm already taking bitters, zinc, tmg and ACV. I've also been using rice bran and kefir.
Could at be that my adrenals are beyond the help of vic c, b and herbs? As I mentioned I've had extreme stress (major life changing, tragic events continuously for 24 years). Also, I smoked heavily and drank heavily for 10 years (self medicating for stress). It's been 3 years since I quit drinking and smoking. Is there anything else I should do to repair all of the damage I've caused (in addition to the adrenal mix, liv-r-ight, pau d arco/andro/chap mix for autoimmune and the above mentioned supplements)? Would it do a lot of damage to try the glandulars for 3 months while I got everything else sorted out?
There is so much going on in my system (hashimoto's, horomones out of control, adrenals depleted, high amounts of candida, leaky guy, digestive issues, breathing difficulty, fibromyalgia/pain, food allergies , UTI, yeast infections, eczema, acne, liver problems, pms, cracking joints, severe hypoglycemia, constant chest pain, etc) and I have no idea how to get it all under control. The doctors seem to only recommend things that will make it worse in the long run.
Am I being impatient? When should I expect results given my history? Should I add anything?
Sorry for my rant. I'm so appreciative that I can get solid guidance from you.
