Autoimmune Condition - Toxin Elimination And Supplementation
This question is around activated charcoal usage, chlorella, and supplementation.
I am a 27 year old active women diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis 2.5 years ago. Have remained in remission for 2 years but on a medication thanks to huge dietary changes
I do a lot of research on pathophysiology of Rheumatoid, Pharmokinetics of medication I am on, supplementation, women hormones, etc. I am a firm believer in gut issues and the impact on chronic disease. Please note I am gluten and dairy free as an active health choice. I monitor myself extremely well and am trying to upgrade myself and I experiment a lot.
I am having a few issues with a few niggles and aches that don't stop me doing anything they are just annoying me and I need to get them sorted.
I have just received my Upgraded Charcoal, Chlorella powder and Primal Defense Probiotic capules. After thinking I realised I have no idea of times to take so that I can get the most out of all!
I am planning to take Activated Charcoal to assist me with eliminating toxins that I am struggling to eliminate and want to reduce workload on my liver - long term I would like to continue this also. I have planned the days I will take it around the elimination of my medication based on research.
I am planning to take Chlorella and the probiotic to kick start my gut as its taken a hit recently due to a few things and then cease use of chlorella due to its high iron content but continue with daily probiotic. I am also going to increase my glutamine to 80mg for 3-5 days and then cut back to 20-40g.
My questions are :
1. Can you take Activated Charcoal and Chlorella at the same time?
if not, when is the best time to take them both? I know they are both toxin eliminators but they
serve different purposes for me
2. How long should I take Chlorella for - I have planned to take it for a month and then cease?
3. How long a time gap should there be between charcoal, chlorella and taking supplements?
I currently take (before adding in extra above)
AM : vitamin C, Vitamin D, glucosamine, hydrolysed collagen, digestive enzyme pre food,
Lunch : glutamine, digestive enzyme pre food
PM: vitamin C, krill oil, glucosamine, hydrolysed collage, digestive enzyme pre food, glutamin
Thanks in advance
