I have anxiety and depression and recently went to a naturopath to have tests done to find out what the root cause of both could be. I have very high levels of dopamine and norepinephrine, slightly elevated glutamate, and low epinephrine. My coritsol levels are flat throughout the day (they should start out fairly high when you wake up and slowly slope downward as the day goes on) but mine are just low the whole day. My vitamin D levels are also ridiculously low. My naturopath gave me the following supplements to take: NAC, B-Complex-Vital Nutrients, PhytoNutrients multivitamin, CalmPRT, Boswellia, Vitamin D3/K2 spray, Zinc, UltraPotent C (1000mg vitamin C), ProgonB (progesterone, haven't started this one yet though), and EPA-DHA.
I have been taking these for a week now, as well as being on a completely dairy-free, gluten-free, meat-free diet (and eating mostly soy-free, as the only soy I've been eating is the small amounts of soy lecithin that are in some foods). I have been having stomach issues (diarrhea 2 to 4 times a day, sorry, I know that's TMI) and a lot of gas as well since I started taking them and switching up my diet a week ago. I called my doc and asked about it and he said to take them with food. I've been doing that, but the issues remain. Any idea if one of the supplements specifically could be causing this? I also feel somewhat nauseous sometimes.View Thread
The results he found matched what I've been feeling for years, so honestly, I trust the tests results. They explain why I'm always tired and have no energy, yet I'm always anxious and I can't control it.View Thread
