Supplements That Help With My Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Disclaimer: I am not a doctor or in the medical field. I am just sharing what supplements have helped me with my Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Everyone has a different body chemistry so what works for me does not mean it will work for someone else. Always consult your doctor about any supplements that you are taking or plan to take. Some supplements do not "play well" with certain medications so it is really important to let your doctor know any and everything that you are taking.
The picture above is the line up of supplements I take each day to help with my Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. These, in combination, are what I have found works best for me at the moment. There may be other things that would work better, but I have not found them yet. ;) I have tried other supplements as well, but they did not work for me. So here is the daily lineup:
Vitamin C~ 1000 mg
Vitamin D3~20,000 mg (my doctor checks my levels and this is what I personally need to take even though it is a high dose for most people so please get your levels checked before you take
more than the recommended daily dosage)
Triple Strength Glucosamine Sulfate~1,500 mg (this really helps with the joint pain)
Flax Seed Oil~1,200 mg
In addition to this I also take a medication for my sluggish thyroid and a supplement to help with those lovely issues that come with menopause. ;)
I can definitely tell when I have not taken my supplements. I am more achey and tired. I used to also have terrible yeast infections that anti fungal medications just made worse. Since having a total hysterectomy, they have not been as major of an issue as they once were. I also eat lots of yogurt or take probiotics when my system is out of whack and that seems to help also. If I have to take antibiotics I megadose on probiotics to try to avoid a yeast infection.
I tried so many different things before I hit on this combination but to be clear once again, everyone's body chemistry is different and what works for me may not work for someone else. Please do read my disclaimer. I am just sharing what works for me and not trying to give anyone medical advice.
