Common Questions and Answers about Natural vitamins vs supplements


Avatar f tn ANyone take any special supplements such as vitamins or mineral or other supplements to relieve the CFS symptoms. I currently take amino acid herbs and vitamin d3.
1210142 tn?1266077031 t suggest professionalism. Second, info is inaccurate. They claim that their vitamins are natural and others are synthetic. All vitamins are synthetic. There's no Vitamin C floating around loose out there, you have to isolate it from something else. It's usually taken from corn in a chemical process. That's obviously not how it occurs in nature, so it's to a degree synthetic.
Avatar f tn They can be helpful for many things, but I strongly believe exercise should be a natural process, not one pushed by supplements. That becomes unhealthy too much of the time as you move to more and more unnatural supplements that can work but aren't good for you because you aren't satisfied with the slow results that natural processes produce.
Avatar f tn Has anyone tried any natural supplements or vitamins to help with the diarrhea and constant bathroom trips.
Avatar f tn I was wondering can ADD be treated using natural remedies? If so can you give me some suggestions? I have been reading alot on the internet and I don't want to waste my money on something that will not work.
Avatar m tn s important to discuss anything (even natural supplements with a Dr.) Even natural supplements can interact negatively with each other, or other medications you are on. Natural does not mean safe. There is absolutely no scientific evidence that there is anyway to improve egg quality. Women are born with x amount of eggs, and that is what we get. They age just like we do, and that is where chromosomnal abnormalities come into play.
581954 tn?1223391496 Definitely extra calcium and hi-potency B vitamins. Calcium is a natural soother while the B vitamins are great for stress & anxiety. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to do this on the forums but I highly recommend the book Prescription for Nutritional Healing, 4th Edition (Paperback) by Phyllis A. Balch. It is my BIBLE. Talks about all vitamins, minerals, some therapies, and of course over 300 conditions.
1367899 tn?1278121440 My sister and I started a blog on Adderall to learn more about the medication along with alternative and complementary ADHD treatment options. Any feedback from users of Adderall or Adderall XR would be greatly appreciated. Topics to be added this week on How is Adderall XR different from Adderall? [Adderall vs. Adderall XR] What is Adderall? How to Make Adderall: [Adderall Background Information] What are the best Adderall and ADHD books?
Avatar f tn My alphafero protein went from 6 to 11. last year i started taking massive amounts of herbs and vitamins . ,like 35 per day. 10 were to try to get rid of psoriasis , the others were anti oxidants. i took them all at once. could this have taxed my liver as far as metabalizing this amount and could that have sent my alt's up . i feel fine no change in me at all. other than these numbers. i took another blood test today.
1462810 tn?1327360449 I am into all the natural vitamins, supplements, bio-identical hormones, etc. There are no side effects and they work, it just takes longer than drugs. I have been to a few allopathic physicians, and when I have asked them questions regarding my supplements, etc, they have no idea as to how to answer. I know at times, a person does need them, but, all in all, the Naturopath is the best for most cases.
Avatar n tn I am talking gel caps vs hard pressed vitamins......
2192208 tn?1346525832 You might also try a B-complex vs B12 only. All of the B vitamins have to be present in adequate amounts, because they work together. Calcium and magnesium levels also have a bearing on energy. Calcium is calming, so can help you sleep better. I take mine at night. There are so many things that affect our energy levels, it's really hard to pinpoint one single thing. There's the amount of sleep you get, weight, exercise, the types of food you eat.. It all affects our energy.
768754 tn?1373918737 vitamins/supplements. Are there any other specific concerns about multi-vitamins for Hep C+ people, not currently under tx? Thanks.
560272 tn?1311350293 Katie, Folks on this forum have tried a million "natural" supplements, vitamins, herbs and oils and even dancing naked in corn fields.............Some swear by them, some say they are of no use and the jury is still out on many of them. The one and only thing I will advise you about ANY of these things is to consult with your doctor or a chemist befor you take ANYTHING!!!! Especially if you are on a prescription medication.
535882 tn?1396576685 She gives a pretty thorough description of all the natural supplements for anxiety and depression, or not all but the ones she knows about. I managed health food stores for many years, and studied a lot about this subject, but the thing is, everyone's different. What works for one won't necessarily work for another. The other thing with natural products is that herbs and amino acids are generally used in combination, since no one is all that strong.
Avatar m tn I agree with Paxiled on everything about natural supplements and pharmaceutical industry ( $283 billion worldwide in profit by the way ). And this is why you don't see too many doctors recommend the use of vitamins and natural supplements. It is also why you don't see many people get a high dose IV vitamin C treatment to replace or mixed with chemotherapy in cancer treatments. But people are waking up and sooner or later a revolution will happen in the medical field.
Avatar m tn there is a fine balance between minerals, vitamins and herbal supplements. The amounts taken and the combinations there of. I use to sell vitamins, minerals and supplements. Was not keen on supplements... I started to go into a university program to study herbology but got sidetracked. The benefits derived from the above can be found in fresh foods and a healthy diet. It would be great to see everyone cooking and gardening again....this fast and processed food is awful for our systems.
102999 tn?1326855784 I have been taking many supplements and vitamins for many years now at the advisement of a nutritionist/pharmacist in town. I feel some of these have really helped. But not really sure what does what at this point. Drs around here really don't believe in vitamins and the more natural routes. My insurance doesn't cover the docs that deal with it. So it is very difficult to get trustworthy info/advice. Question is...could any of these be aggravating my PACs? Thoughts?
Avatar f tn What other supplements/vitamins are you ladies taking or suggest to take besides prenatals? !
492869 tn?1285018933 Are you currently taking any vitamins and/or supplements to treat your Dysautonomia symptoms? Elaborate, or discuss your response below if you will like.
Avatar f tn I take a multivitamin and Vitamin D. None really help MS but your over all health. MSers are not immune to other health problems. It makes life easier if you have few health problems. That is why I am big on a good diet and exercise. When I was first diagnosed I felt these were things I could control. My doctor says I am the healthiest MS and Cancer patient she has seen. No one would know I have either. I also do mindfulness meditation.
Avatar m tn Hi, I got a westie which is now a year old and after trying out different foods like solid gold and wellness, finally found out he got a sensitive stomach and settled with natural balance venison and sweet potato. May I know if he needs additional multi-vitamins or supplements as I don't see any gulccosamin or probiotics from the ingredients and nutrients.
