Should I Try More Supplements Now?
First a little bit about myself, since I think it is important in this context. 2.5 years ago I got mono/kissing disease which after a while was gone in my blood, but I still was very tired. Before I got sick I did drink a lot of beer, ate a lot of chicken/tuna, oatmeal, a lot of protein, and other bodybuilding foods which I thought were healthy. I tried a lot of stuff and did research a lot, nothing worked (natural docs, psychologists because I felt bad).
A few months ago I started with cognitive therapy since they concluded I have CFS, but I didn't want to accept that, and I did find bulletproof. A few months before I did find bulletproof I already started with vitamin b12 after a seminar/lecture about this and magnesium. I started thinking clearer and had less pain in my legs, I also slept better.
Moving forward to like 1 month ago, I started eating bulletproof as well as I can (paying for coconut oil, protein powder and so on myself), and also added vitamin d, vitamin c, and just ordered iodine which I still have to start with, since I concluded I don't get any iodine from food at all and didn't have this for years.
Basically my health is going well, but it starts all to get pretty expensive. I am absolutely convinced that the food is critital. Had a lot of sugar 2 weeks ago, felt bad for 3 days, and a few days ago I had alcohol free wine (apparently lots of toxins) and some wheat, felt bad again too.
So yeah, I won't be saving money on my food. Also I started taking magnesium malate lately instead of the mix I had (with proper forms according to supplement guide) since I did read malate is optimal for CFS and pain in my legs (fybro?) which I already have for over a year. Also when I finished my first magnesium I ordered by accident magnesium oxide, issues came back, started researching, turned out I ordered wrong form, ordered good form, issues became less again. Cliffs: magnesium and proper food are critical for sure at the moment for my health.
I wonder what supplements I should keep taking now, which ones to quit with, and maybe which ones to add. Basically I concluded that I am magnesium deficient and that my body is toxified, because of all the insane high toxic food and drinks I have put into my body before I got sick (that is why I post it here). Also it is not unimportant that it starts to get a lill expensive for me. My health is important, but right now ALL my money goes to food and supplements. If the supplements really can help me with my fatigue I have no problem with that, but if I can skip supplements without noticing consequences that would be nice. I will lower my dose b12 because of this (did take 2 months extreme high dose because they did recommend this) to a std amount.
Do you guys think I should keep taking all of those? And do you think I should add more? I did read yesterday and today about calcium d glucarate and l-glutathione, which apparently might help too. Hope you guys can advice me a bit on this, since on the one hand I feel like ''buy everything that can help'', but on the other hand it gets pretty expensive for me and I don't know if its necessary. Thanks a lot
