DISCLAIMER: This is just what works for me. I always ask that people do their own research and talk to their own doctors on what would be or wouldn’t be good to take and to listen to your own bodies. I also am using alternative means to treatment because I currently do not have access to healthcare. (I’m covered in one state but not yet the state I am currently living in). If I did have the access to go to a medical professional I would surely be on medication. Again, that is what is right for me.
So when doing my research in ways I can combat the pain I was feeling, I stumbled upon a lot of research and direction on supplements. I was never against using supplements, I just didn’t think they actually worked and didn’t want to overload with how many I was taking for everything, but I will say that after consistent use I have found some symptoms improving.
- coenzyme q10 – acts as an antioxidant. It also has had evidence of helping with heart conditions and lowering blood pressure. I take it for migraines, in which it has been studied and used as a treatment for.
- cranberry – if you are a woman, you probably know what cranberries are good for, but in treatment for my IC, which mimics UTI symptoms, I take these for bladder and urinary tract health.
- magnesium oxide – is used to prevent migraines. It can also help with muscle pain and relieve heartburn and indigestion.
- vitamin D – reduces pain for those of us suffering from fibromyalgia or MS and may also help with fatigue.
- probiotic – great for gut health which can help reduce symptoms throughout the body.
- omega 3- works as an anti-inflammatory.
- cbd oil – said to reduce pain and anxiety.
- feverfew- migraines
- turmeric – stomach aches and indigestion
- ginger- headaches
- chamomile – inflammation, headaches, and muscle spasms
- garlic – helps with the immune system
- rosemary – heartburn and headaches
