But first she wants to work on fixing my gut sot hat the supplements she prescribes actually get absorbed.
wow, I thought vitamin D helped you to absorb calcium, not pull calcium from bones.
I am taking high strength vitamin D because my doc did a 25 hydroxy blood test on me and said, “these are the lowest levels I’ve seen”. And thats coming form someone who treats chronically ill people regularly.
They cautioned me, ‘Too much vitamin D and it starts to take calcium from your bones and dumps it into your bloodstream.” So thats doesn’t sound too good.
My doc put me on three weeks gut-fixing protocol:
Gut FLora Complex
I’ve got to take these with every meal for three weeks.
Sounds kind of typical or similar to what I experience. The zypan will help with stomach acid. Okra pepsin helps clean out the sludge inyour galbladder. One problem with okra pepsin is that it can cause chronic constipation so my naturopath uses for some people and not with others. He does not prescribe it for people who are constipated. Cholacol is another galbladder supplement. Prosynbiotic I have mentioned before, but its the standard process boulardii product that they have and I am interested in it. Gut flora complex does a variety of things I am not familiar with but it does contain berberine which I don’t recommend. Berberine basically acts like an antibiotic.
The galbladder is a very important part of your digestion and is kind of similar to the liver. If you can get this going again, it should improve your digestion in general. I use AF betafood to help my galbladder.
I really like standard process supplements and feel that they are the highest quality vitamin manufacturer out there.
