4) Nystatin for yeast (1ml to 2 ml drop)
5) DMG ( 1 tablet)
6) Speak EPA/DHA 725/275 Vit E 5000 (I have read negative reviews about this online)
7) Cod lever oil (2500 IU)
8) Vitamin D drops (1000 IU)
9) CURCUMIN 150 mg / day
10) Carnitor (1g)
Hi- I was looking over the list of meds and wonder what you have decided to do. Also to say that actually some of these might be very worthwhile to at least give a 3 week trial to as they may have benefits. Just my opinion, but I think it would be worthwhile to try to caesin free diet, the calcium, the buffered vit C, the Nystatin, the Cod liver oil (if you have a brand that doesn't have upset stomach effects) as this is quite healthy. And then maybe see what results you are getting and somewhere down the road try the curcumin. Don't know much about Carnitor and I have read of health benefits of EPA/DHA but you could also try that at a later date.
Let us know what you are seeing.
