As you all know, I have been going through some health shit lately. Mental and Physical… This past year I’ve had more blood taken then when I was pregnant both times. I had ultrasounds on my neck, on my uterus… I have PCOS, Hashimotos (but my thyroid is still okay for now, they say) also my vitamin D levels were deficient. Currently I am waiting on a cholesterol check because the bad one was high all of a sudden this past physical. So I don’t know. Anyway, I say all this to say it all started back in October. I woke up and thought I was dying because my stomach was killing me. I went to the doctor and told her that since my father had died I was drinking a lot… Mostly just so I could go to sleep. I thought I broke my liver. She touched my stomach and I almost screamed. Turns out it was acid reflux. She gave me medicine, told me to get some blood work and sent me for a chest x-ray to make sure my lungs were clear. My blood work came back with the Vitamin D deficient and I was told to get a good high dose over the counter and come back in a few months to test again. So I went to Costco because I like to buy in bulk.
I bought the Costco brand Vitamin D and I tried to take them, I really did. I even started to eat breakfast to try to help me not feel so nauseous but a couple mornings no matter what I did, I would throw the vitamins right back up. One morning I was walking out to my car to drive the my kids to school and I puked right outside my car. My kids were like “Oh my god! Are you okay!?” I explained to them that it was the vitamins and I wasn’t really sick… Then I tried to take the vitamins before I went to bed but I don’t like feeling gross if I don’t go to bed fast enough so I started to just forget.
Around this time I was also feeling really crappy mentally as well. My father died in a farm accident last July and it was my first holidays without him. I just felt crappy physically and mentally. I got on a list for a psychiatrist in January. Meanwhile, my primary care doctor was trying to figure out why my cholesterol was going up with the results from the next blood work. She told me it might be because of the holidays and food and to continue taking the vitamin D and come back in 3 months.
In April I was able to get in to the Psychiatrist. He gave me Wellbutrin to help me get my ass up in the morning and not feel so miserable all day. He gave me a high dose vitamin D and told me to start with that and come back next month.
I went back to my doctor and she said guess what? You need a high dose vitamin D and your cholesterol is even HIGHER. I was like I am eating Oatmeal. I am taking 5000 vitamin D a day and I want to give it 3 months before going on any more medicine. She said okay.
The vitamin D I have been taking is amazing. I am not nauseous. I have been taking it for 3 months and I feel amazing. So amazing that I signed up to be an ambassador for the company. It’s really incredible how much of a difference I feel just waking up in the morning.
This is the Vitamin D I am taking till I run out and if you are deficient and having a hard time finding a vitamin that doesn’t make you feel like vomiting 15 minutes later, give this a try. Vitamin D-5,000 . I think it’s amazing. You do have to take it with food so it absorbs better, but I didn’t feel like puking at all, ever.
I do take a probiotic everyday and my psychiatrist recommended I add fish oil. Which is something I have heard before. So I also started taking this a month after the vitamin D with dinner. Omega Plus™ . I swear I feel even better. I think my skin looks better too, honestly.
The last thing that we added was a basic daily vitamin that I will continue with that after I get my vitamin D to where it needs to be. This I have been taking for the last month and I really can’t tell you how amazing I have been feeling lately. Basic Nutrients 2/Day
I highly, highly recommend these vitamins. I am currently waiting on my next blood work results from my tests this morning. I have also added walking more and I will be adding in some cardio and weight lifting in the next few weeks.
This is my link and if you are looking for some amazing vitamins, I would really recommend at least trying these. I have bought all the ones I have tried, nothing was given to me for free. I just liked them so much I signed up to help promote them and maybe get a little discount along the way.
