I am a little bit apprehensive about taking too many supplements that may stress my kidneys. I have a cyst in my left kidney and have an upcoming appointment to check on it. Because excess of most supplements is excreted by the kidneys, I’m afraid to add too many things to my supplement list. I have always had a no-pill attitude, and don’t even take anything for headaches or any other type of pain.
I’m currently taking Milk Thistle and cranberry extract (for my recurring bladder infections – had to cut out the cranberry juice b/c of the sugar) and already feel that this is enough. I know I will have to add antifungals, but am planning on using coconut oil, garlic, and other natural forms.
I don’t know if I’m just paranoid, but there is a medical condition to take into consideration.
I do take hot baths daily, will be upping my exercise regime (I do only yoga and 10-15 min of light weight training), and continue the oil pulling as well as start skin brushing. I know these don’t have the exact same effects as Molybdenum, I just don’t trust the pill-form of detoxing.
If you have any advice on this, I’ll definitely take it into consideration!
