I take a mulitvitamin that has 400mg of C and then I add two 1000mg of vitamin C as well as some other supplements.
The thing that changed for me was eating RAW food. I eat a huge salad for my dinner. It has 2-3 cups of spring salad mix, 2 stalks of celery, 1/2 to 1/4 of a pepper (green,red,yellow) what ever I have in the house. 1/2 cucumber, 1/4-12 cup broccoli, cauliflower and anything else I have to throw on it. Sometimes red onions, green olives, hard boiled eggs…it is huge. For dressing I use olive oil and Braggs ACV. I once in a while add a small bit of chicken or salmon but I have really lost my interest in meat ( I have not in a month or so). I am so full after I eat this I don’t want more…before I was cooking my dinner. Steaming veggies etc. Trying to get the old three things on my plate as I had before. Meat, veggie, starch. Now I just eat a huge salad and that along with yogurt and kefir seemed to help me a ton.
I hope you find relief. I know how stressed out I was about the whole situation and it is really a huge mental relief to have my body adjust. I also think it was the walking etc. At first I felt like I was too sick/weak to exercise so I didn’t but once I started that helped as well. I hope you find relief. I will try and ask her some more questions. I just told her bits and pieces about this whole thing because doctors just act like this is not a real problem.
