In answer to Bustermom's question I will try to list the vitamins and supplements I am on. I have never heard of these before: I'll also give you some of what the description says about each one that they gave me. Most of them have a longer description so I tried to narrow some down. I thought the most interesting was the last one on DHEA hormone. I will take most of these about only 4 months the Dr. said, but I imagine some like the vitamin daily(energy enfusion poweder) I will always take as well as the throid and hormone.
Corvalen M 340mg (combines D-ribose, magnesium gluconate and amalic acid.) "This is to help rebuild depeleted energy stores associated with muscle fatigue, pain, soreness and stiffness. Ribose, the active ingredient in CorvalenM along with magnesium and malic acid, has been clinically demonstrated to rebuild energy stores as well as help cells use energy more efficiently."
Daily Energy Enfusion Powder This supplement includes 35 ingredients- plus this one comes with a B-complex tablet.
Mitomax NT "This is a glycophospholipid rich mitochondrial nutrient complex that boost mitochondrial function and assits in relief of fatigue. It has been proven to enhance cellular energy production. This complex nourishes the cell and mitochondrial menbranes to improve electron transfer that is required for the production of cellular energy."
Omega-3 - Fish oil (one soft gel contains 300EPA and 200 DHA)
Probiotic tablet- aid in digestion
Release & Renew - "This is for muscle, tissure and joint support and combines all natural nutrients to comfort tense and aching muscles and support joint mobility"
Rest & Restore - A natural sleep aide that contains eleven ingredients . ( I think this is helping me more than I realized.)
Chelated Iron - ( they not significant improved absorption over "standard" iron and this is easier on the stomach
DHEA 25 mg/Pregnenolone 100mg - "DHEA is a human hormone naturally produced in the body by the adrenal glands. It circulates in the blood steam and is converted into other hormones like testosterone and estrogen. However, your body's production of DHEA reaches its peak between the ages of 20 and 30, and then rapidly declines. By the age of 80, production of this hormone is at only 5%. DHEA promotes improvement in immune system function, and some studies have shown it supports improvements in skin hydration and thickness, and improvements in energy. DHEA has also been reported to promote weight control by lowering fat mass. Pregnenolone is a steroid precursor whose primary function is to help the body to produce other hormones such as progesterone, estrogen, DHEA and testosterone. A person's level of pregnenolone generally declines with age, and by the time we are 75, we have only 40% of the gregnenolone we had when we erer 35. Made in the adrenal glands from cholesterol, Pregnenolone helps maintain leves of key hormones, while promoting mood and memory enhancement, as well as improved energy levels and enzyme activiity."
Bio-Identical Thyroid Replacement Therapy. (T3 and T4) This comes from another company and not sold at the clinic.
One other good thing- I ordered replacement for some of the medicine I had run out of and I live across the state from the clinic- well it got to me the next day.
This place did make me a little leary especially with selling the natural vitamins there but I really do feel they are on to something by checking into the levels of the natural hormones in people. And I felt I have not improved at all by the normal mainstream treatment- of which actually I didn't get any treatment- except for them to tell me what I do not have!
I REALLY hope this works for all of us!
