667008 tn?1231126469 As for herbal supplements it is always best to consult your doctor as herbs are powerful and there are interactions with other medication your daughter may be taking for her kidney or certain herbs she should never take. The same goes for minerals and vitamins, it's always best to consult a doctor before engaging on that path. I started taking magnesium and find it helps, but it's more a combination of different things together that seem to work best.
422425 tn?1307992990 That was years ago and I am smoke free today. But, if you are looking for something natural...... I just stopped at our local Health Food Shoppe today and spoke with this lady that is well known in my city. She is a walking Encyclopedia of information on health, nutrition, meds, herbs and vitamins. I am having major pain issues and have tried everything. I do not want to live on pain meds or meds the rest of my life. I believe they are causing me more harm than good.
1042487 tn?1275279899 Most of the B vitamins have been recognized as coenzymes, and they all appear to be essential in facilitating the metabolic processes that are essential for life. These vitamins are essential for the breakdown of carbohydrates into glucose, which provides us energy, the breakdown of fats and proteins, which aids the normal functioning of the nervous system, muscle tone in the stomach and intestinal tract, and healthy skin, hair, and eyes.
Avatar f tn ) or any of those types constipate me. I was hoping for a natural suggestion to talk with my doctor about. They are not very informed with natural treatments of things and said they would talk with another doctor and let me know what they want to try next. I figured since I am on here I might as well ask if you know of natural treatments for FM so that I have a list in case they don't!
Avatar m tn I know that with kidney disease at a more severe level they have prescription vitamins because regular vitamins contain potassium and calcium which are bad for your kidney. So I am not against it - just really cautious. I find family to be well meaning, but sometimes a little too helpful. Trust your gut, and always check with your kidney doctor first if it is anything you ingest or apply.
Avatar f tn The symptoms could be due to many causes like low blood pressure, low blood sugar, heart causes, electrolyte imbalance, liver and kidney dysfunction, stress, panic disorder, or even due to hormonal imbalance of menopause. You need to immediately consult a doctor who can examine you and run tests to rule out these causes one by one. You could also be having a mini-stroke. If you cannot otherwise get a doctor, I suggest you rush to an ER. Eat something and drink fluids and see if it helps.

Avatar f tn Has anyone tried any vitamins for anxiety or panic attacks? Such as Niacin, Valerian vitamin b3, b12 or anything? I was reading up on some things.
716688 tn?1230310219 I take Stress B vitamins, and I also take Pre-Natal Vitamins. Any suggestions on other Vitamins or Natural things I can do and take so I can get off all of those medications? I feel that I dont really need them, but in some areas, like my mood swings, I still need something natural to help me. I was wondering if there any herbal supliments that you can use instead of all of the freaking medications.
Avatar f tn I have been studying natural health and supplements for many years and have found that many over the counter supplements are not worthy of the money spent. A good friend of mine actually has owned a healthfood store for approximately 20 years and has taught me which over the counters are worthy.
Avatar f tn t know what brand you should use, but I use all natural prenatal vitamins and Omega 3 from natural health stores, I pay a little extra but they are worth it they don't have any chemicals or artificial additives that are unnecessary.
9780765 tn?1405910914 m glad it did as it is a life saver for me. When I first started using the CPAP, I started to dream for the first time in a long while.. significant improvement. I also take provigil which has helped quite a bit for daytime sleepiness. I've also tried some night time natural sleep aides like: Dream Water and Averil and IChill. Dream water worked well for me, but is way too expensive.. pushing $100.00/month for an 'over the counter' remedy.
Avatar f tn Do you have any support at home? Did you get gear up for this at all with vitamins, protein shakes, gatorade, juices, water, soups, etc? Do you have any aftercare in place? I know...lots of questions lol I totally think you can do this though!
Avatar m tn Can you be more specific about why you think you have kidney problems? Assuming you do have kidney problems, there are herbal treatments for that, but what they would be would depend on what's wrong. Some just tonify the urinary tract, some try to break up stones, some deal with infections, etc.
