Ok, I went and looked at the list. I am confused. One of the supplements on the list of things NOT to take is magnesium. Huh??? B12??
Borage Oil Magnesium
Coenzyme Q10 Selenium
Evening Primrose Oil Taurine
Fish Oil Vitamin B3 (Niacin)
Flax Oil Vitamin B12
Garlic Vitamin E
GLA (Gamma Linolenic Acid) Zinc
Based on surveys, it appears that about one third of us are helped by magnesium, one third worsen, and one third obtain no effect. The good news is that when magnesium works, it can work very well. Magnesium is the body's natural calcium channel clocker. The recommended daily allowance is 400 mg/day. Alternative doctors often recommend 600 or 800 mg/day. Start with a small amount, 100 200 mg/day, and increase gradually. Use high quality magnesium because poor quality can cause diarrhea. My favorite magnesium product is Magnesium Plus Protein (mgplusprotein.com), but it is easier to get magnesium citrate or gluconate or Natural Clam (magnesium citrate crystals in water) from a health food store. Magnesium therapy requires normal kidney function and good hydration, and use in the elderly or dosing above the recommended daily allowance of 400 mg/day requires medical supervision. Alternative doctors (find one at ACAM.org) are usually more knowledgeable about magnesium than mainstream doctors. Under their direction, higher doses of 600 800 mg/day can be used. Other substances with mild calcium channel blocking effects are chromium, high doses of ascorbic acid, and the herb butterbur.
Ok so that paragraph means ascorbic acid would be bad.
I feel like I am always taking 1 step forward and 2 steps backwards.
I also use to be on a blood pressure medication called micardis , i think. it may have caused me problems too.
I wonder if I should stop magnesium and B12 for awhile....
