Re: Supplements and Vitamins & Acupuncture?
suggest you do not do acupuncture during a flare, otherwise it is helpful. i am a vegetarian. leaving meat out of my diet gives me more energy and less bowel issues. i drink a whey protiene drink, take, a, d, c, bcomplex, b-12, k, electrolyte suppliment, cranberry, and a vegan 1 a day.
if you want to go inexpensive make your own tinctures. kava kava and valerian root were very helpful to me in the beginning of fibro.
i would also suggest an immune system boost so ask the nice young man about that. i cannot remember right now what it's called cause i am out at the moment and have to see it to know it. giggle.
all my vitamins are vegan and organic.
a good place to spend your money is a masseuse. massage is the best i have found so far. floating in a warm pool is also very soothing so i go to the club in winter and do laps and float.
thanks for the info about acupuncture and chemo. will pass that on to a client i have who is going thru chemo.
when faced with something you cannot control peace lies in self education and adaptation to the situation.
