Hi Smithville Mom:
So nice to meet you. I hope you fund good information at this site.
I would also recommend a coenzyme Q10 75 mg daily. This supplment improves oxygenation of tissues, enhances the effectiveness of the immune system, and protects the heart.
If you are having trouble with IBS, I would also recomend Acidophilus, as directed on the label. Candida infection is very common in people with FMS.
Lecithin will promote energy, enhance immunity, aids in brain function.
The magnesium that Tawny recommended is great. Try to find a tablet with Malic acid AND magnesium combined. This will help give you energy production in the cells of your body, and is needed for sugar metabolism.
Manganese 5 mg daily (take separate from calcium) helps influence the metabolic rate by its involvement in the pituitary-hypothalmic-thyroid axis.
Also, drink plenty of liquids to help flush out toxins. Avoid green peppers, eggplant, tomatoes, and white potatoes (these foods contain solanine which interferes with enzymes in the muscles, and may cause pain and discomfort).
I may have given to much info! Take what you can use.
