pursue optimal self care at least as actively as a diagnosis
ask for referrals to preventive health care specialists eg dietitians
don't let suboptimal self care muddy any underlying diagnostic picture!
I normally try to take four or five capsules in the morning, and the same at night, so I did the same with these. I can't say I noticed any difference. I did however only try them about five nights. The problem is that I think they have some kind of diuretic effectCureOrBust wrote:http://www.iherb.com/Source-Naturals-Me ... 28193?at=0
Normally I can get through the night without having to get up to urinate. However, on the nights I took these, I was up 3-5 times before the morning. I tried them a couple nights, had a suspicion, stopped, and then tried them again. They are definitely off the night list for now.
turmeric (just plain turmeric, the spice you find in the grocery store) saved me from massive pain & inability to sleep when someone introduced me to the process of inflammation - i just wanted to chip in as i saw (last night) on Charlie Rose, MS sufferers (all?) deal with inflammation in their brain - i do too & can provide helpful info.
among 'whole foods' (the spice turmeric, ginger root (cleaned & skinned..), garlic, etc) the order that these (again i have massive inflammation so it easy to tell the order) helped was:
1) ginger root
^ order of potency of anti-inflammation for whole foods i have tried
but then i got into supplements, via Mercola.com's articles - i tried boswellia, as well as turmeric *extract* (curcuminoids (sp?)) supplements. i think i got a cheap brand of boswellia, so that may be a sort of 'wash' or 'unknown', re what i can recommend, but i will just say for these that the turmeric extract pills were nice because i didn't have to have tomato juice as a base to ingest the raw turmeric spice 3 times a day -- which became a hard thing on my stomach, which i counteracted with apple cider vinegar & water -- but anyway --
the reason i comment is because i just got on BCM-95 ((again am just some guy with allergies & a ton of serious brain inflammation)) -- BCM-95 saved my butt. it is SO STRONG (not sure about all brands - i will mention mine but again no monetary/whatever affilation, ONLY a customer -- "Genceutic Naturals - BCM 95 Curcumin, 250mg") -- it is so STRONG, i was saying, i have to poke a hole in it with a pin (i use a corn-cob holder =D) & drain half of it. it pows me. it was what saved my butt last night when i was sort of verging on too much inflammation. i am ordering more (how i found this thread, actually) & am also going to move to arizona or somewhere where my allergen - mold - 's count is low. till then i'll be taking the even more natural BCM-95 extract until i develop a tolerance, then wean off as i introduce something else. fwiw, ginger (i use peeled ginger root) is i think synergetic with turmeric & therefore probably turmeric extracts like 95% curcuminoid stuff & also BCM-95, too. (ginger & those work better together than each individually, i mean.)
p.s. definitely read about inflammation, not a good thing for you:
best to keep it in check.. good luck - my friend does the MS biking, i'll tell her to raise a few more dollars knowing you guys suffer what i suffer (brain inflammation (right?))
- still joe =)
it is always possible.
