So I decided to take Cinnamon capsules to see if they'd help. Been on them for about 3 weeks now and I think that they are helping. I've been studying herbal remedies, and it was suggested several times. I figured that the worst it could do is make my tummy sore, so it was worth a try. I use the "real" Cinnamon, not the Cassia Bark. It's also good for proper absorbtion of glucose and improves circulation..... who knew?
 
I swear by my vitamins: Rutin, Biotin, Vitamin E, Super B-Complex, CoQ10, Iron, Magnesium/Calcium, and a multi every day. I use St Johns Wort, 5HTP, or Melatonin for sleep and headaches.  Green Tea for weight loss. Trying to figure out some other ones, too. Acidophilus makes me vomit. I don't know why... but I can eat yogurt, so I do that instead.
 
Thanks again Keah for telling me about Rutin. :)

what do you think of 5HTP? I've read a little on that one...reading will never beat hearing from someone who's used it, though.

I really like the 5HTP. It is somewhat sedating, seeing as the 'TP' is tryptophan (also in Turkey & Cheese) which makes you sleepy. It's helped with anxiety and tension, and just has an overall calming effect. I don't take it all the time, just on a PRN (as needed) basis. I think it's great, and defiantly worth a try. Consult your dr. first though, to make sure it wouldn't interact with any meds, etc.
