Okay lol so I won't tell you about all of the thousand-dollar options! My dog also has allergies; hers aren't as severe as yours sound, but I also wasn't interested in spending big money so here's what I've learned:

1) To absolutely rule out a food issue, ask your vet about trying prescription-grade kibble. When mine started displaying allergy symptoms, her vet prescribed Hills Prescription Diet z/d. 17lbs ran like $40-50/bag - but you have to consistently feed the kibble, and ONLY the kibble for at least two months solid. No snacks, table scraps, Greenies, bones, antlers, rawhides - nothing. It's an annoying process, but it's the only way to rule out food-related issues without doing a panel test. Unfortunately, food allergies manifest in the same way as environmental allergies in cats and dogs, but it's the easier of the two to diagnose without a panel test.

I had a cat with a severe allergy to protein (I know, wtf), and sincerely could not eat anything other than his kibble. Once we figured it out (by trying everything else first and spending lots of money on skin scrapes and vet visits), it took six weeks to get under control. After it was under control, we could tell when someone fed him something because he would have an immediate flare-up; these usually took two weeks to clear back up if it was a one-time snack, but one of the roomies was feeding him snacks multiple times a week for a few weeks because she didn't know, and that one took a month to fix.

2) If it's contact-environmental, you can try a few different things in the bathing department.

Increase the frequency of baths. During peak allergy season, I have to wash my dog once a week. I have friends who have to wash their dog multiple times a week year-round, with medicated shampoo from the vet. Note: You're going to need a good skin conditioner if you go this route - the frequent bathing will dry out the skin which will still feel itchy, and will flake.

Ask your vet about medicated shampoos; don't just use the OTC shampoos labeled for allergies and skin problems.About a month ago, my vet recommended shampoo containing ceramides; recently, studies have shown that since dogs have more space between their layers of skin than humans, ceramides will come to rest in between the molecular layers of the dog skin, and some dogs respond very well to having the extra layer of protection from the great outdoors. A botte from my vet's office ran me around $23. I'm not sure what my other friends have been using, but I know that there's more vet-grade options than just ceramide shampoo if you haven't explored the vet's cabinet yet.

Foot soaks with the medicated shampoo for between baths.

3) Laundry and Bedding Experiments:

My friend's old dog was very allergic to wool; they had to remove all of their woolen products from his reach. But they only found this out by doing a panel test lol. Try changing the material that your dog sleeps on. If she's sleeping on polyester, try cotton.

My dog is mildly allergic to Woolite detergent. Have you tried changing your laundry detergent?

Wash your dog's bedding. During peak season, I wash my dog's bedding once a week. Off-season, probably every 2-4 weeks as needed lol.

4) I use topical Benadryl Cream or generic to spot-treat my dog since my dog responds well to oral Benadryl, but it makes her weird and messes up her elimination process. This works even better than hydrocortisone (cortisone cream), and is a better long-term solution than cortisone because it is antihistamine cream, not steroid cream. By now, I'm sure your vet has given you the mini-lecture on why prolonged use of steroids is bad lol, but I can explain it too if you want to know.

5) I actually like to use cortisone cream when the itching has resulted in a break in the skin, because it helps the skin heal up and close more quickly while also treating the itching. My dog targets her feet during off-season, and I get concerned about her increased risk of infection since her feet make the most contact with the ground. I usually only need to apply it once or twice, then switch back to benadryl cream or aloe once there's visible improvement in the wound.

6) I also like to use CLEAR aloe gel to help reduce the burning feeling that comes after intense scratching. Other benefits of aloe gel include that it's a great moisturizer (and if she's licking a lot, she's going to dry out her skin in those areas), it also speeds up the skin's healing process, and it dries up really fast! The only place I've been able to find CLEAR aloe gel is at Giant, like $4/bottle I think, but one bottle is pretty decent-sized. I split it up into travel-sized bottles for easier application onto a wiggling dog.

7) Fish Oil. Or trial bottle lol. Cheapest to buy it in bulk; some dogs respond well to this, doesn't work for us.

8) Zyrtec or generic. There's a lower success rate in dogs with Zyrtec than with Benadryl, but if it works for your dog, then why not? OTC name-brand runs like $20-30/30 pills; generic is $11/365 from Costco. I personally use these to manage my spring allergies and I can say that the name-brand stuff works a tiny bit better for me than Costco's generic; my neighbor can't tell the difference between the two. Obviously everyone is different, so every dog must also be different lol.

9) Change your flea/tick preventative. I'm sure you've ruled out that it's not actually fleas lol, but perhaps your dog is allergic to whatever you're currently using?

10) It's not mange, right? Your vet did skin scrapes to rule this out already? Dogs with autoimmune issues are more susceptible to getting repeat-episodes of mange, but if you're seeing a sudden drop in symptoms at first frost, you're likely correct in thinking that it's an environmental allergy.

11) Just try the Apoquel. The internet is a cesspool of negative reviews, but I've heard nothing but praise for it from real people who are using it to treat their dogs. There's always going to be a minority of cases that don't respond well or at all to a medication that works for a majority - even I myself can prattle off a list of medications that loads of other humans have great success with, that make my life hell. My vet's office said to order Apoquel far in advance because they're usually out of it during peak allergy season, since everyone is using it. I was quoted about $70 for 3-4 weeks-worth. If your dog is already suffering, you have nothing to lose.

12) Booties! I'm fairly confident that my dog's problem is leaf-mold because it's at its worst in the fall, and flares up when it rains. Her feet suffer the most; I make her wear booties every day during peak-season, and whenever it rains/just after it rains. I can definitely say that it helps keep her feet in check. If you want to try it, here's my rant on inexpensive dog booties. If money wasn't an issue, I'd get the RuffTrex, hands down. But she's just gonna lose or destroy them, so no lol.

Bottom Line: Less expensive options = more work for you. GOOD LUCK HAVE FUN.

u/heidiname · 8 pointsr/MMFB

I know exactly how you feel! I'm sorry you have to go through this--it's just the worst existential morass imaginable. And it blows that you have to keep having surgeries. If it will help, here's my story in a nutshell.

The little car I had rented got smashed when an 18-wheeler barreled into the driver's side door. I ended up in a coma, with my pelvis snapped in three places, a lacerated spleen, a subdural hematoma, and a bunch of cuts and bruises, some requiring stitches and other just ugly. Because of the coma and the head injury that caused the coma, I don't remember the whole first ten days after the accident, but I'm glad I don't: I think it was painful and horrible. And that right there is the only upside of a head injury: you forget some shitty stuff. The rest of it is pure crap.

It doesn't sound like you had a head injury, but I think our experiences after that were kind of the same. Your life screeches to a halt for a little bit, and then veers off sideways, and everyone else's lives just continue on the trajectories they were on before your accident. A few people show up every once in a while, at the beginning, but after a short time it becomes clear that you are on different life paths now, and they don't come around anymore.

Meanwhile, you are exhausted, because healing your body is hard and tiring work. Even if it looks (and feels) like you're just sitting around all day, your body consumes a lot of energy knitting things back together, and you don't understand why you're so tired at the end of the day (or in the middle, or at the beginning). You don't really have the interest or energy to pursue the things you used to pursue; you feel like the whiniest person in the world because all you really have left to talk about is your awful health; nothing distracts you long enough from how horrible things have become. Your old "friends" have moved on with their lives, and you can't find or make new friends because you've become boring, don't talk about anything but your health, and you're too tired to really go out on the town, anyway, even if you did have something interesting to talk about.

You end up feeling completely alone. In my case, I struggled because after the first six months of recovery and cognitive remediation, I was well enough and functional enough to fool everyone, including myself, into thinking that the TBI (traumatic brain injury) didn't have any long-term effects. I went back to law school. I could understand what the professors said, but I had to sit in the very front of the classroom to hear them. I could not understand the other students, who did stuff and went places and told stories about how wasted they'd gotten last weekend or how hard they'd worked to help their legal clinic clients. They kind of looked like aliens to me, like we were actually different species. My "friends" from the first year and a half of law school dropped me (to be fair, I don't really blame them, but it was still incredibly disappointing). I felt like my only focus for the rest of my life would be my recovery, which made me so sad and disappointed in myself--I had wanted to do something meaningful in the world, help someone, but all I could think about was how to help myself--I thought I was too crazy with PTSD and anxiety from the accident to be useful. I eventually graduated, barely, and started a job at a big law firm. It wasn't until they fired me because I could not keep up with the hours (I was too tired), despite everyone recognizing me as "the first year who can write," that I admitted to myself that the actual injury might still be a problem, not just my psychological response to the accident.

Which brings me to the next part of the story: endless, endless, endless therapy. I know it's not the same as endless surgery (how horrible!), but I imagine some of the feelings are the same. At one point, I suddenly stopped going to everything--cognitive remediation, occupational therapy, psychological therapy--because I just could not stand to be a patient any longer. I thought if I had to explain one more thing about myself to one more person, if I had to think about myself as sick or injured for one minute longer--even if it remained true--I might just explode. The weeks and months and years of trudging to one appointment after another had just worn me down so much, I couldn't even bring myself to communicate with my therapists about quitting. I literally just dropped off the face of the earth. I know that isn't an option for you (surgery is less optional than another hour-long session of memory and emotional regulation exercises), but I imagine you must feel kind of the same way.

So here's the part that might MYFB:

It has an end. You will not actually need surgery every year for the rest of your life. I don't even know exactly what's wrong with you or any details of your accident/injuries, but I can say that with confidence. You will not be a patient forever, you will begin to feel better, and you will have other things to think and talk about.

Time heals most wounds. And those it doesn't heal at least become mundane and unobtrusive. I still have problems from my head injury--faces kind of all look the same, I have no memory for names, time passes oddly for me in ways that are hard to explain, I still get the occasional devastating, blinding headache, I don't think my energy will ever come back up to what it was pre-accident--but none of them are important anymore. Some of them are funny, some require a bit of explanation, but no excuses (e.g., I tell everyone I meet that I don't remember faces and if I stare blankly at them the next time I see them, please don't be offended, just tell me who you are--but I'm over feeling bad about it!). Most of them, I just cope with. Time passes weirdly and I can't keep track of things? No problem, I have three calendars. My energy levels aren't what they once were, but they're good enough, plus coffee is a thing.

You will find new friends. This part is hardest and might take longest. But there's a new you, a new post-accident you, and you have to accept and love that new you. That will make it easier to find other people who can also accept and love that new you. For me, I couldn't really cope with people comparing new me to old me, and I kind of gave up on those few friends who didn't give up on me first. But that's OK! You will find people who don't make that comparison (either because they didn't know you then or because it doesn't matter). You will find that you are able to relate to them on a deeper level, and you will find that you have better friends. Not just St. Patty's Day drinking buddies, but real, honest-to-goodness friends. It will take a long time (I won't kid you about it), but it will happen. This is the hardest part--keep on keeping on, and it will get better.

Antidepressants kind of suck and you might feel better if you supplemented or replaced them. After my antidepressants picked me up off the very bottom but made me basically manic depressive, I switched to huge amounts of EPA-omega-3-only fish oil (the EPA has the good stuff for mood regulation, DHA is just a filler from a mental health perspective). This is what I take now. It's not cheap, but it helps. Also make sure you have enough B12 and D. Supplement! B12 has to be sublingual, because it's destroyed in the gut, but you cannot really take too much. D is one of the rare vitamins you can actually overdose on, so be more careful there, but definitely supplement that, too. Everywhere else in the developed world, those are recognized as important components of mental health--just not in the U.S.

Go volunteer somewhere with little kids. There's almost guaranteed physical contact, and it will help you feel more human. In big cities, most large hospitals need volunteers to come hold babies who are stuck in the hospital and whose parents cannot be there 24/7. They need human touch to heal and grow and thrive, and so do you. It doesn't have to be another adult to make a difference for you. I didn't feel so starved for physical contact, but to be brought out of myself and to feel useful, so I volunteered at a soup kitchen and shelter every weekend for a long time. I thought I was helping them, but it was really the other way around.

Get a dog, if you aren't a dog hater. It will sort of help with the physical contact thing. If you are not strong or up for long walks right now, go to the pound and get a little old dog who is a bit calmer and who might not otherwise find a home (because no one wants to adopt an old dog). Or go through a rescue group that keeps the dogs in foster homes, because the fosters can tell you in great detail about the dog's behavior and personality, so you can make sure you're a good fit before taking him/her home. The dog will get you out a little bit more, and put you in situations where you end up talking to people, which will make you feel more connected to the world. You may even met a friend (I met my husband). Just make sure you have a place for him when you have to go in for more surgeries (a couple nights boarding in a kennel or another home is OK for most dogs, if it comes down to that).

Sorry if this was too long! To sum up, you will feel better! Just hang on, and wait it out. This is the shitty part, and things will start looking up soon. I'm rooting for you! Stay in touch, feel better!

u/firerebel123 · 3 pointsr/SleepApnea

He needs to have his anxiety and his sleep apnea addressed dually. There are some benzos that are less addictive but honestly restoring your sleep is worth being addicted to ativan, which may be my current situation.

So, load up on the proven non prescription anxiolytic agents which include fish oil(in fatty fish or supplement form), ashwagandha(supplement only), l-theanine(in tea or supplement form) and throw them at him.


Thats what I used to take, it was the first one that made me go, "Oh okay this is actually making me feel better" instead of "Eh its placebo?" I only got noticeable effects when I took a serious amount, like 5 of these horse pills a day. Which is beyond the scope of most studies and why only a few report anti anxiety effects.. I think. https://examine.com/supplements/fish-oil/

Im basically just linking you the supplements I used here not selling anything. Its just the ones I can personally confirm to have worked.

Ashwagandha ksm-66 on amazon anything with decent review count and quality https://examine.com/supplements/ashwagandha/

L-theanine, high reviewed amazon products typically fine something like this



Vitamin D.. if your boy isnt getting any sunlight like it sounds(working afternoon/nights then sleeping forever) is important. extremely cheap too

Ok so ashawagandha is your heavy hitter here even though by itself it wont really come near xanax levels of "good". However, over time I have found these things to approach benzo levels of anxiety reduction. Like fairly quickly, weeks. And theyre sustainable, no prescription.

Now, you can also buy your own cpap and adjust the settings. Honestly, a lot of us went in for a sleep study and then got thrown to the fucking wolves. They send us off to the durable medical supply depot to get our cpap and set the setting then tell us good luck fella and we dont get our cpap to work for months/years. People here can help you adjust it, its easy.

For you, these things arent bad either.. Fish oil and vitamin d are good for overall health for anyone. Ashwagandha is specifically useful for chronic stress related anxiety. Buy some ear plugs and let him thrash himself out until you get it sorted. Its not mean, its love.

u/FastRedPonyCar · 3 pointsr/Fitness

No the supplements listed in his program are all safe and (in my opinion) largely unnecessary.

I changed the supplements that I started taking my 2nd time through his program because I thought that the ones he recommends are expensive and I didn't notice any benefit to be honest.

Here is what I would suggest (and bear in mind that everyone's body is different so for some guys, they may feel more or less effectiveness out of various supplements)

  • AST Multipro 32x multivitamin

  • Top Secret brand Fish oil & CLA

  • Bio X whey protein


  • Machine Whey protein

  • Tier 1 pre workout - Cheaper than other preworkouts and only contains a few key, proven to work ingredients. I really like the stuff.

    That really should be it. There are numerous other similar products from other companies that are probably just as good but those are the ones I have been using for quite a while now.

    The only other thing that you may benefit from would be a fatburner/thermogenic like BPI's roxylean or MTS Drop Factor. Both are essentially glorified caffeine's with a few other things but assuming your diet is in check and you're lifting 5 days a week, your body will be burning calories naturally without having to use that stuff. Basic old caffeine pills are DIRT cheap and work just as effective too.. basically like downing a cup of coffee.

    Thermogenic fatburning supplements DO work to a degree but how well they will actually work kinda depends on the individual's body and how well it responds and it's meant to essentially elevate your heart rate and metabolism so if you have heart issues or adverse reactions to caffeine, I would stay away.

    I don't really feel like my body reacts that well in terms of actually burning fat (hard to quantify actual fat loss results from JUST the pills since I'm eating at a caloric deficit - which will yield weight loss in an of itself) but I do feel like the caffeine boost gives me a nice mental pick me up in the afternoon whereas coffee has largely proven ineffective.

    The main thing you need to take away from this is that supplements should never make or break your weight loss success.

    If your results hinge on supps, you are doing something wrong in the kitchen. Countless guys and girls have gotten great results without the need of supplements. Good supplements though, simply make hitting your goals a bit easier.
u/Moobs_like_Jagger · 2 pointsr/ketogains

I'm one of those rare birds, I guess, who really likes the taste of fish oil. This bottle for Vitamin Shoppe is what I have right now.

Looking at the math, I think if price is the primary concern, then capsules/softgels might be the best way to go. However, Vitamin Shoppe and GNC are constantly having sales (at least where I live) that make it easy to go in there and pick up some stuff every now and then. I also order from Amazon when there's no sale, and I've been really pleased with Carlson, but it's really high dollar. Nature's Answer lemon-flavored is pretty good, and Barlean's fish oils have a bunch of flavors to choose from (watch out for carb counts, though; check those label images).

I also eat quite a bit of herring and sardines, so I tend not to take fish oil supplement every day, which saves some money for me. I try to keep on the lookout for sales/specials at Vitamin Shoppe, GNC, Netrition, Drugstore.com, etc.

For example, Netrition has the pint bottles of Barlean's on sales for $21.50 right now, which beats Amazon by quite a bit. If you can shop for some other items and bring down the shipping, it can be a good deal. Good luck! I hope you find something you like.

u/LosLosrien · 1 pointr/soylent

About the Omega fatty acids (I am quoting /u/theubercuber here):
> So here's the deal with Omega 3's:
Most people don't get them. You won't die without them. It's better for long term heart health and probably a lot of other stuff, but most people scrape by without. Having a Soylent that lacks Omega 3 isn't a big deal compared to your old diet, it's just an optimization.
But if you DO want to make sure you get them, you have to learn about the different types of Omega 3's.
The first type is the easy type, called ALA. It comes in plants, and it's what your linked recipe has from flaxseed.
The human body doesn't do anything with 99% of consumed ALA.
The second type is the hard type, and you have to get it from animal sources like fish oils. These are the DHA and EPA sub-classes of Omega3's, and these are the ones that are beneficial to get.
Lots of products claim to have omega3 for your health, but only have ALA. If you're going to go through the trouble of looking for Omega3, you have to make sure you're getting a source with the DHA and EPA.
It's hard finding a solid source of omega3 outside of fish oils, so if you want to go that route, a fish oil pill or bottle like the one I liked is going to be the best way to go.

He linked this previously btw and it does seem like a decent product. I don't really agree with the 99% number he puts out, since I couldn't find anything that specific but it is true that your body doesn't convert most of the omega 3 ALA to DHA/EPA... Anyway, I decided on leaving proper omega fatty acids for the second version of my soylent...

u/Acnehommie · 6 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Hey Tree,

I just read your entire post and I actually just created a Reddit account just to give you a reply since your story aligns perfectly with mine. I mean, perfect. First congratulations on becoming acne-free, every person on earth deserves to be free of this skin disease! I believe that so much so, that I’d like to tell you my story so it can help you further. To relate, I used to drink half a gallon of milk everyday since I was 13. So I was a dairy nut as well.

But the difference is I hit 5'9 by the age of 13 and I'm now at 6'2 at 195 lbs. (quite lean). I got forehead acne at the age of 14, it all started when I started to masturbate. I know you didn't include this but this might be a trigger for you, as it was for me. I noticed continuously that I had no new breakouts if I didn't masturbate. I'd love to go over the science behind it but that's going to take too long. In a nutshell, it indirectly causes acne by creating hormonal imbalances in your body. Regardless, it's a disputed issue and everyone's case is different.

I was then put on antibiotics like you, from Doxycycline to Minocycline, both of which I've become resistant to. And I now know why I've become resistant to them. What antibiotics actually do, is they kill all the bacteria that causes certain diseases which is why they're so effective. But the "trade-off" is that you can quickly become resistant to it and it destroys your gut bacteria. There are several studies online that show the connection between gut health and skin (acne). That being said, you probably don't have a healthy gut flora balance by now which leaves you prone to acne and various other health problems. Your gut absorbs various nutrients and plays a major role in your body's well being.

So, anyways at the time, I didn't know any of this shit. Believed the dermatologists who only treated the symptoms, not the underlining problem. My face soon at the age of 17, due to chronic stress and the other terrible things that I was given before, made me break out - bad. Like holy shit, Freddy Krueger had nothing on me, it was that bad.

I didn't look at anyone in the face, people saw me as a monster versus who I really was. I thought I was a nice guy, actually incredibly handsome, tall, and muscular (I know I'm being biased). But quite a lot of people only judge you based on your outer appearance versus who you really are. And I thought I deserved acne, the dermatologist I went to said "I was doomed to acne because my mother had it", which is why I had acne prone skin in the first place.

Then you know one thing leads to another and then you're taking Accutane. That was the worst regret of my life, Accutane. I know, it helps so many people and it works. I know it works, my oldest brother who had chronic acne was 'cured' by it. It's the closest thing we have to a wonder drug for acne as of right now, but it's a last resort. And to give you some background of why it's so bad, Accutane was originally developed to be a chemotherapy drug developed for cancer. The original company that developed it, Roche, had to discontinue it in 2009 due to all the lawsuit claims of various health problems its caused. But they soon found out that the isolated Vitamin A derivative form works so well to treat acne by accident.

The drug is so dangerous that it has all of the most dangerous FDA warnings on it and has a stringent program to enter a patient, but regardless, various unqualified patients are put into it like myself. It made me depressed and I could really feel like my growth plates were being closed. It does stop growth, it's not a maybe side effect, there are various studies on oral administration of retinoids permanently halting children's growth. If you don't believe me, just google it. It causes premature growth plate closure, in layman terms, you stop growing early if you're still in puberty stage.

Anyways, I just stopped going to the dermatologist, whom was more interested in giving wealthy women face lifts rather than helping me. So, I researched and researched medical backed studies, natural alternatives that weren't pulled out of a gorilla's ass, and found out what actually works. Skincare Addiction on Reddit is written by some very intelligent and knowledgeable people, but sometimes I don't agree with all the products they use.

To skip to the big slice of the cake, this is a rundown I did that helped me cure my acne. All I have is post inflammation scars and get literally no new scars. I can shave and not get any acne and the only spots I get are a few small bumps on my nose. Nothing else.

First thing I do, is I take vitamin supplements and these are the game changers for me. They’re the reason why my oil production has lowered drastically and I have no new acne lesions. Most people that have acne are actually deficient in Zinc, and various studies have shown that zinc supplementation is as effective as an antibiotic in the treatment of Acne Vulgaris.

I take: Zinc for acne which you can get on Amazon or Puritan’s Pride for cheap: http://www.amazon.com/Zinc-Acne-tabs-Goodn-Natural/dp/B000KI6Z7O/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1451229381&sr=8-1&keywords=zinc+for+acne

I take 2 capsules a day along with a multivitamin, this right here will be a game changer for you. I also take Carlson’s Fish Oil, Lemon Flavor liquid variety: http://www.amazon.com/Carlson-Finest-Liquid-Frustration-Packaging/dp/B00GA86WR6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1451229412&sr=8-1&keywords=Carlson%E2%80%99s+Fish+Oil

Take a tablespoon of Fish oil everyday for anti inflammatory EPAs and DHAs which are essential for acne and skin in general. I also take Ashwagandha since I stress out quite easily and it helps with acne: http://www.livestrong.com/article/280495-what-are-the-benefits-of-ashwagandha-in-acne/.

Along those supplements, every morning I drink a cup of water with lemon with wheat grass for liver detoxification. Make sure to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day eating plenty of vegetables and fruits as you need fiber.

This is the best part, you can still drink milk but it has to be fermented (you can make delicious smoothies with it or if drink it plain). I drink Milk Kefir which is fermented milk. It’s incredibly awesome as it has more probiotics than any pill you can buy, has more beneficial bacteria and yeast strains than yogurt, and is completely lactose free. You just buy the grains from Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/1TBSP-Active-Organic-Kefir-Grains/dp/B007GGRJTG/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1451229857&sr=8-3&keywords=milk+kefir

Make sure to use milk (organic preferred), and let it ferment for a day and then strain it out for 5 minutes. It will reintroduce healthy bacteria back into your gut, where antibiotics have killed all of your good bacteria which can contribute to a variety of health problems and acne.

And that’s it and I take Benzaclin (Clindamycin Phosphate/Benzoyl Peroxide combo), this stuff is magic and doesn’t have any extra ingredients in it. I apply it if I see any new pimples which go away overnight only on my nose area. Now, all I’m worried about is reversing my post inflammatory hyperpigmentation, which I’m sitting on the expertise of the fellow Redditors to help me with this.

I hope some of this information may have you helped you in some way or anyone, because I believe that nobody deserves to have acne. Let me know if anyone has anymore questions. I will be making a mega topic for acne supplementation and my journey once I'm cured from my PIH. Thanks for sharing this awesome story and I hope my story brings some helpfulness to you :)!

u/blak3brd · 1 pointr/Nootropics

So what has worked for me over many back and forth "quits" is this:

a. Green Pastures Fermented Cod Liver Oil This has been such a radical game changer. I've taken nootropics and straight up drugs that had less effect than this does as far as how you feel, both acutely and especially chronically. I tested as very deficient in Vit D. I suspect cannabis and all drug use depletes this over time, and obviously a poor diet which I have had for most of my dependency. Vit D is considered a neuro-steroid, its effects are so profound and absolutely required for proper neurotransmission and formation of dopamine and serotonin among other actual hormones.

Very powerful and essential. Also, the DHA/EPA are proven through studies to essentially "unclog" the cannabinoid receptors. We are not just dealing with tolerance aka receptor downregulation, its also the receptors becoming physically clogged. This is the only brand that I found to be true, unadulterated, and immediately effective. I take 3x the recommended dose. It comes with an oral syringe and a cap that just lets you draw it right out. It doesnt even taste bad, at all. Old world wives wisdom is to take a big tablespoon anytime you feel sickness coming on, or are feeling down.

b. I use phenylethanolamide a FAAH inhibitor that allows my natural cannabinoids to remain in play for longer, and therefore accumulate to a higher natural degree. Most people take it for pain and inflammation. I've also recently added in a CBD tincture from CBDistillery in an effort to antagonize the receptors lightly and therefore encourage them to upregulate faster. It also enhances the activity of the endocannabinoid system as well, a good synergy here. The cbd doesnt feel very anxiolytic, or really very effective at all as far as perceivable effects, i assume because of a trashed cannabinoid system, but it notably improves the time needed to reset tolerance and return to a more normal baseline. The PEA is something that takes a couple weeks to work at peak effect as the natural cannabinoids build up over time.

c. In the past I've taken megadoses of Inositol to great effect. The studies show at 12-18g it is very effective for depression, panic, ocd, and anxiety. It both enhances serotonergic neurotransmission, and upregulates dopamine receptors. After 3-5 days of taking 1g every 1-2 hours (to avoid GI issues) I have a notable lifting of the stubborn anhedonia. I feel like engaging life again.

d. last but not least, and not for those who lack discipline, is to microdose cannabis. Look up Healer.com, Dr Sulak who has a protocol that after 48 hours of abstinence you can start by, maximum 3x per day, with hours spread in between, taking the smallest possible hit of the weakest possible weed, and blowing it out right away and gauging if you feel ANY physical sensation whatsoever. Not a high, just ANY perceivable physical sensation of having taken the hit. If not, gradually increase ur dose each session til u do.

This is how u find ur minimal effective dose, and u stick there. after 1 week of these microdose hits, you will essentially be reset tolerance-wise. and this has a profound impact on the recovery of your baseline performance. The trick is maintaining that level, or stopping entirely, and not being seduced into starting your addiction over by having the tolerance of your 14 year old self all over again.

Because all the problems and epic goliath level tolerance WILL resurface within one week of resuming your old pattern of consumption. The biggest problem is taking more than one hit. THATS where tolerance starts. Ever notice all the old timers and deadheads literally smoke one hit and are blasted off their fucking asses? Yeah, thats how. They accidentally stumbled on this secret of nature in the era of no internet and no medical cannabis.

They made due with what they got, didnt have a culture of one upmanship and being the cool guy who can take 4 bong rips to the face, and are much better for it. My dad is a musician born in the 70s and I could never fathom how he and ALL of his friends universally get shit faced stoned from a single hit of shwag out of a pipe and Im sitting there taking 6 dabs and feeling functional and wishing it worked like it used to.

Once I found Dr Sulak's protocol and experienced it for myself my eyes were opened. You have to sign up for his site for the full step by step, but its free, dont worry.

Hope this helps!

I am in the same boat and just had my labs done. I am 37 yrs old and my doctor thinks I am too young to be on a statin. I had a doctor who had me on a statin for a short period before. I don't know what the side effects are from statins. What I am seeing about taking niacin to lower bad cholesterol and raise good cholesterol is that its a second choice if statins aren't working or the patient can't take statins. I have only taken niacin a couple times and would never do it again because of the flush. I am looking for a niacinamide, zinc, copper, and folic acid supplement for my acne. A girl on here had posted about taking a niacinamide supplement for her cystic acne and how much it has helped.

Do you take fish oil? It helps with cholesterol and is good for your cardiovascular system. I was taking Dr Tobias Omega 3 Fish Oil Triple Strength, 2,000mg, Burpless, Non-GMO, NSF-Certified, 180 Counts https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00CAZAU62/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_XalyDb0PXA032 and I think it was helping my acne so I might go back to it. But you have to take 3 big enteric coated softgels a day (I take mine at dinner) I really like the ones I take now because they are really good quality and I only have to take one soft gel and it has a higher epa amount. But they aren't enteric coated and I might go back to the Dr tobias ones because I feel like my acne was clearing up during that time but it could have been something else. The fish oil seems to help level out my hormones. https://www.google.com/shopping/product/11768144938854447263?lsf=seller:15646,store:6768831685341554042&prds=oid:14920488462491029248&q=wiley%27s+finest+fish+oil+peak+epa&hl=en&ei=6bJgXdiWB42v0PEP79CkqAE&lsft=adlpxid:pla;299328552456;283055589310;m;9033354;placeholder;1981398;pla;local;1012&lsft=gclid:CjwKCAjwnf7qBRAtEiwAseBO_LL-BXo9Tyi_fstqvZkAvtoETGWrtoXqIHVrgsd-C09lmgdP1UkAPRoCh-wQAvD_BwE The wileys is expensive off of Amazon. If you choose to take fish oil, research brands and look for 3rd party testing. Supplements are hard because they aren't monitored by the fda like other dietary products. Nordic naturals is another good fish oil. But all three of these are pricey. But if you order dr tobias off Amazon you get a voucher type thing for a free bottle of another supplement and I chose the multivitamin and they were good as well.

I have gone up and down dramatically with my weight and have tried so many things. Honestly the only way to lose weight and keep it off is by changing your lifestyle to eating healthy and exercising. Diets are crap, make small changes at first and then make more. I need to do this, but I love my ginger ale. I drink a lot of water but I drink 4 cans of ginger ale a day I need to give it up. Garcinia cambogia is the only supplement that I have seen aid in weight loss, but I haven't tried it yet. Garlic is supposed to aid in lowering bad cholesterol, I believe.

For you I wouldn't worry about cycling macros for now. I'd eat 100g carbs, 275g protein, & 80g fat daily. Focus on lean meats, healthy fats, and whole grains.

u/destiny_manifest · 1 pointr/TwoXChromosomes

I'm a bit late to this thread but I hope you see this.

I would highly suggest getting your daughter some whole food complex multivitamins and a high quality fat supplement, such as fermented cod liver oil.

I do realise these can be expensive but from what you described in your edit, she is doing what most humans do. When we are lacking key nutrients, we seek out food types that mimic that which we are deficient in. It comes out as craving sweets or salt or fat or dairy because these foods correlate to what our bodies are missing. With western diets, especially with finicky kids, it's close to impossible to ensure we get a full range of the nutrients we need. Multivitamins and fat supplements are a simple way to achieve this.

I've linked two products that I use and trust for my own child but feel free to do your own research. Cheers.

Whole food multivitamins:

$15/lb for grassfed beef sounds really high. I can get grassfed ground beef for $5/lb at Wegmans & Trader Joes. Maybe there are cheaper options near you for that.

Diane Sanfilippo created a nice document (PDF) that breaks down the best quality to baseline quality in food choices. That can help you make choices as far as what meats to buy, etc. Here's her blog post that expands on the PDF.

If you do end up going away from grass-fed meats, try to supplement with fish oil if you can afford it (to balance your omega ratios). Amazon has Carlsons at a pretty good price.

Good luck!

u/Back-in-the-Saddle · 1 pointr/Fitness

Hi, I'm late to the party on this thread so I hope someone gets a chance to read this. Cravings have always been a big problem for me so I do a lot of things. In general I try eat a near ketosis diet (/r/keto for more info) staying away from fast absorbing carbs in general keeps my appetite down. Next biggest thing I do is I buy bulk Psyllium fiber and gluccomannan and put them in a nice easy open container and spoon out a teaspoon with meals and a tablespoon with very low fiber meals (it's mixed in water and then you have to drink it really fast). This helps me from over eating. I also do lots of things like drink water when I'm hungry and leave raw whole walnuts and almonds in jars on my counter so I'm tempted to eat a few throughout the day. Another thing that helps with the cravings is baby carrots a little more expensive by I don't have to get a knife and cut carrots up which makes me eat more. I also throw a few carrots on the side of my plate with every meal. In general as well I try to eat tons of healthy fats through out the day. I like avocado, tuna, I'll have some coconut oil in my protein shakes as well. I've found if I skip meals I then over eat on the next meal which causes insulin spikes which set me up for a three day roller coaster of overeating so I don't skip meals! Hope this helps!

Edit: I also supplement with cod liver oil which I think seems to help!

u/ruler_gurl · 1 pointr/Guitar

To put a word on it, this would be tendonitis. Do you have this issue in any of your other daily activities? I'm not dr but am a longtime sufferer. I started noticing it decades ago when I still played sax due to the persistent pressure on my thumb from having it hooked under the rest.

The suggestions already made to alter you guitar height are a great start. In general the more hooked over your wrist is, the more strain it causes, so by all means hike it up and do your best George Harrison pose. But you should also stretch you thumbs and wrists before you sit down to play.

Not sure how old you are but as we age we become much more prone to this issue. My older brother is in his 60s and has played bass all his life and we both almost simultaneously discovered an omega supplement that absolutely rocks. I can play for hours without pain after starting on this.

u/skyrmion · 2 pointsr/soylent

>I'd like to avoid dairy for my acne and digestion so are there any recommendations for vegan "heavy cream"?

It'd be easy to use olive oil, but your MUFA/SFA ratios may not be ideal. I'd like to remove dairy from my diet for the same reasons, but I still use heavy cream because it's easier and tastes better imo. (thankfully i'm on accutane so i'm free to binge on all the dairy i want and my face is fine)

>Is an Omega 3 supplement is recommended?

For general health, yeah.

I use this. I know this sub doesn't like Labdoor too much, but they rate it best for value. I take two capsules a day. I think I feel better when I take my fish oil consistently.

u/Beyonceislame · 1 pointr/PCOS

After getting more information and reading through your posts again, it sounds less and less like PCOS. Which means you don’t need to worry about that! It should put your mind at ease.

I’m not 100% clear on what your ultrasound showed, but it sounds like they were negative for PCOS. You’ve been told you don’t have PCOS, and that’s also what your symptoms show. The reason your doctor won’t listen to you about PCOS is because you’ve been tested for it and it’s been ruled out. It sounds like he was willing to be open to it by testing you, and then giving you the Metformin even though the tests were negative. But if the Metformin hasn’t worked and you don’t have the symptoms, the issues can’t be PCOS.
There are a lot of signs its not PCOS:

  1. You don’t have the main symptoms of PCOS. In order to have PCOS, you need to have:

  • Very irregular periods. Irregular means you’ve never had normal periods. (Skipping a few like you describe is normal and is probably stress-related).

  • Signs of hyperandrogenism (facial hair, etc.) Acne could be a sign, but since you don’t have the other two symptoms, it cant be PCOS. You need to have at least two very badly, or all three to have PCOS. The acne also started after you went on Metformin, which wouldn’t make sense with PCOS.

  • Polycystic ovaries on ultrasonound. (It sounds like you don’t have this, although it’s not 100% clear. I recommend calling your doctor and double checking this. If you can get a copy of your scans and post a photo of them, I can take a look and try to help you figure it out for sure).

  1. The Metformin didn’t help. Metformin is the treatment for PCOS, so if you had PCOS, your symptoms should have gotten better.

  2. Just because your mom had it, doesn’t mean you’ll have it. It’s not a guarantee at all. My grandma had PCOS. My mom doesn’t have it! Your mom may not have passed it down!

  3. The pains you describe sound like ovulation pains. It’s normal to have some cysts in the ovaries. That’s how women ovulate. In normal women, the cysts are basically eggs getting ready to be released. Ovulation is when a cyst bursts and releases an egg. This can be painful. It’s usually sharp pains like you describe. Having some other pains in the pelvic area is also common during ovulation and when you have a period.

  4. Some acne is normal. Even really bad acne doesn’t mean PCOS. It can be triggered by a lot of things. In your case, it sounds like it could be stress or even diet. It sounds like you might need to see a dermatologist who can figure out exactly what it is and how to fix it.

    I’m not sure why you were given Metformin. You should call your doctor’s office to see why you’re on it! (In addition to asking for your ultrasounds!)

    It also doesn’t sound like endometriosis at all. Which means you don’t need to worry about Tthat, which is great!

    You’re right, thoughts of suicide can be common in young people who take antidepressants. It’s definitely a risk. It sounds like you need to see a psychiatrist who can work with you to figure out how to best manage your depression and anxiety. In the mean time, there are some things you can do on your own that will help. I worked with a depression expert for a while, and medication actually isn’t all that effective unless you have very very severe depression (like can’t get out of bed, can’t eat, etc.) The two things that are even better than antidepressants (and have NO negative side effects) are:

  • Exercise. I know this isn’t exactly what you want to hear since it’s hard to get started and stick to. But even going on brisk walks 10 minutes a day is a start. In clinical trials, exercise actually helped more than antidepressants. It’s way more powerful than people think, but is obviously more effort than taking a pill. However, it doesn’t have any negative side effects and helps your body and mind in so many other ways. It will also help your weight and anxiety!

  • Taking a very high dose of Omega-3 oil has been proven to help depression, but you need to take a much, much higher dose than normal. A normal dose won’t make much of a difference. An average pill has about 150-300mg of Omega-3 in it (even if it says 1,000mg fish oil on the front label, you need to look on the back to see how much Omega-3 is in that fish oil). You need to take at least 3,000mg of Omega-3 per day. Not much more and not less. This will also help a lot with acne!

    It sounds like your relationship with your father has been frustrating. Just remember, you can only control what YOU do. You can not control what HE does. You’re in charge of your actions and your actions alone. If he won’t do something for you, you’ll just have to do it yourself. This isn’t always easy, but hopefully addressing your anxiety and depression issues will help you feel more able to manage life on your own!

    Edit: Since you’d need to take at least 7-8 normal pills a day to get the dose that helps with depression, I recommend this brand of Omega 3:
    It’s in liquid form, so you only need two teaspoons of this brand a day. It tastes like a light oily lemon flavor. No fish. I take this brand. It doesn’t taste like candy or anything, but it’s much better than trying to take 8 pills a day! It’s also ends up being cheaper than taking pills when you have to take so many each day.

    I know it’s expensive, but in my opinion it’s worth it. It will help with the depression, acne, and a lot of other things. It’s something that can really help you feel better mentally and physically, which would help you get back on track!

My father takes this stuff and loves it:


I tried a bit of it and it's true you can't tell it's cod liver oil but I thought the lemon flavor was pretty cloying. I can imagine you would still be able to taste it for some time after taking it unless you brushed your teeth afterwards (and maybe even then).

The only concern I would have is the type of vitamin a in the oil is highly absorbent and it's the type that builds up in your system. I don't know how long it would take to do so, but maybe taking it for awhile and then taking a break would be better.

This is the stuff I use: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00D37S0HC/

It's interesting in that I really notice an effect with this stuff, whereas other fish oils I've tried have had no effect (Nature's Bounty and Sundown Naturals).

Avoid burning and there's no reason not to use the vitamin D factories in your skin. Chances are you'll have a happier disposition, too. Sunlight may have benefits beyond vitamin D production.

u/VirtualMoneyLover · 2 pointsr/Supplements

I never heard of EPA only fish oil, but I guess we learn everyday. It looks like the article just wants to make their own product to stand out among the many fish oil products. After quickly checking on Amazon, looking for EPA only fish oil, even this one has DHA in it, although the ratio is 4:1 instead of the usual 2:1


This one has only EPA in it, the same 500 mg like the one in your link.
If you click on the small pictures of this product, that explains the supposed benefits of EPA only:


  1. Works better for mood disorders, depression.
  2. Doesn't rise the "bad" LDL cholesterol.

    If you don't worry about your cholesterol AND you don't take it for depression, I would just stick to the normal fish oils. Here is a site that helps you to choose:

In all, this has helped, but the supplements are what makes the difference. When I take Fermented Skate Liver Oil my abilities open up ten-fold. Any supplement with "Activator X" will stimulate the pineal gland and have the same effect, but this is the only one I have tried personally and it is by far the most important and noticeable of all the changes I have made. Seriously, I can dump all my other supplements and still have a marked improvement in my abilities from this alone.

u/JackBurtonBr · 2 pointsr/MGTOW

You need at least 500mg of EPA and 250mg of DHA daily. It can do wonders, reduce cellular inflammation, boost your immune system, Testosterone levels, etc.

According to Lyle McD's RFLD e-book, he says:
"Recent research has found that the body will saturate tissue
levels of the EPA and DHA at an intake of roughly 1.8 grams EPA and 1.2 grams of DHA."

Most cheap products don't have a good amount of EPA-DHA in it! Also, most brands have unwanted levels of heavy metals! The best ones are filtered and more expansive. You should shop carefully.

I've been using this lemon-mint flavored oil for a while. Depending on how strong your other flavors are in your recipe you may or may not notice it, in one of my recipes it came through by adding a fresh and minty flavor, I liked the change. Now I don't notice it at all, so either I've become used to it, or my current recipe doesn't allow the flavor to come through.

Well, I would say you should add some things that aren't particularly high protein, just mostly fat. With your current ratio it seems like you're probably getting plenty of protein.

So here's some foods that are mostly fat that I enjoy. Coffee with heavy cream. Macadamia nuts. Avocados. Cream cheese (yep, just straight up cream cheese). Olives. You get the idea.

I also supplement some oils. I drink a tbsp of Carlson fish oil every day to ensure my Omega 6/Omega 3 ratio is good. I also drink 2 tbsp of MCT oil every day before my bike ride because Medium chain triglycerides are highly ketogenic.

At any rate I get 70+% of my daily calories from fat, more if I do a lot of cardio so it's certainly possible to eat a lot more fat. I don't eat a lot of red meat, pork, or just meat in general either but in my case it's because they're a bit too high in protein (relative to fat) for my purposes.

u/bishopcheck · 4 pointsr/science

I should have stated that i was throwing out a cost effective way. In anycase.

Non sugar based protein powders are fat and carb based. They still have sugar, but not as much.

Hell he could go the coconut oil route but a cup of coconut oil has the came calories as a cup of an average protein powder. And even though I like coconut oil's taste, I don't think many people could stomach that much.

Other oils that have more calories don't taste very good(peanut, vegtable).

Actually just remembered this cod liver oil is high in calories and vitamins, and doesn't taste bad at all. I used to take a tablespoon a day when I was still in the Army. But a tablespoon is only 130 calories

I'm allergic to nuts, but that's a decent source iirc, though not sure on the cost effectiveness. Peanut butter falls under this category.

I'm not sure of many other cost effective + decent tasting alternatives of greatly increasing calorie count.

Yea thats kind of why i tried to rank what I thought helped me the most. Honestly it could be one, or all of them - im not really sure i just threw everything in the kitchen sink at it.


I read examine.com a lot when looking up supplements. The sad piece is most supplements do little to nothing - assuming your diet is on point. Two supps I have found with good evidence to support there purported benefits are Vit D & Fish Oil. Vit D I take because I live in the Northeast US, so sunlight this time of year is sparse. Fish oil is supposedly good for skin barrier repair - along with heart/brain health. I eat a tremendous amount of fish but it doesnt hurt popping a pill every morning. Heres the brand i take



u/BrutalJones · 2 pointsr/Paleo

I used to have a great article on fish oil that I can't effing find right now. Basically, you have to make sure you're getting the right amount of EPA and DHA from your fish oil. The majority of the capsules won't get you enough of a daily quantity.

This is the fish oil I use. It's just tolerable. The capsules are far easier to take but I had a lot of trouble finding capsules that had enough. You want anywhere from 2-4 grams of EPA and DHA, and the ratio has to be correct.

You can also find more information on the proper amounts and ratios of EPA and DHA in some of the reviews on that page. If I come across a good link I'll post it here. Check marksdailyapple.com

Obviously stay away from all the bad stuff: Sugar, alcohol, artificial things, etc.

The number one thing that improved pineal gland decalcification for me was Skate Liver Oil. This stuff is no joke. Within a couple days of taking it I could literally feel my Pineal Gland when I was laying down in bed at night. A week in it felt like it was throbbing in my head. One of the few supplements that I've taken that had quick and evident results. Skate liver oil is very good for you, as it contains EFA's (essential fatty acids/omegas). I'll post the link below. I'm not whoring for this company, they are the only company that I can find that makes it.

I'll throw this in.. I actually posted on /r/SkincareAddiction regarding omega 3s causing breakouts (mainly it's because it's 1000x more reactive in the body than other fats)..

I found that fish oil breaks me out if I mix it with other inflammatory foods.. like whey proteins, etc.. but if I eat it before a real meal I'll be fine. I personally use: https://www.amazon.com/OmegaVia-Pharma-Grade-Omega-3-Enteric-coated/dp/B00CJKJK1E/ref=sr_1_4_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1492488253&sr=8-4&keywords=pharmaceutical+grade+fish+oil

To answer your question.. You can skip it.. and you'll be fine.. but you should add some olive oil to get your omega 3s.. I would buy that one fish oil supplement I listed.. and eat it right before dinner (so long as it's a real meal).. my skin has still remained perfectly clear.. I used to get bad cystic acne when I combined it with whey protein..

u/Brian4LLP · 3 pointsr/ketochow

FAQ about getting started consuming:

  1. Yes it's salty if you drink it right after mixing... let it sit for at least 30mins to an hour. Also, yes, it still may be salty.

  2. Your poops may be a bit runny at the beginning, treat with Imodium, it will get better after a few days.

  3. Fish Oil, cause your body needs them omega 3's (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001LF39J2)

  4. Adjust calories with the amount of cream you use (about 3.5kCal/ML of cream)

  5. Adjust proteins with the amount of extra whey protein you use (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0013OVWHM)

  6. Mix - Let Sit for 10-15mins - Shake like hell to avoid "clumping"
u/theubercuber · 3 pointsr/soylent

/u/chrisbair posted recently he now supplements Vitamin K (NOW foods, like 9 cents a day maybe)

Also I and many other users still take omega 3 pills, because NO widely available food-type oils really have great DHA/EPA. I know /u/SparklingLimeade uses Norwegian cod oil added into the mix.


It would make it easier, and carries slightly more DHA/EPA omega3's than my pills, but it's a bit more expensive ($0.30 vs 0.15 per day)

I'm considering trying it next.

Not stupid at all! I avoid the "fish burps" by taking my FCLO in the evening. I can't speak for how the other flavors of the gel taste as I have not tried them. Another option you could look into, if you're considering taking FCLO, is to look into taking them in capsule form. These are a bit less cost-effective but help circumvent the fishy taste.

Erm, I was a little off. These are the ones I take (cod oil, not fish oil).

If you do some reading on Cod Oil vs Fish Oil, Cod Oil sounds "better." Though it might all be snake oil.

I use the unflavored variety of this oil currently. Looks like it's cheaper than last time I bought it actually. I don't really shoot for a ratio I just include 5-6 grams of it per day.

Thanks for the find. However the reviews show that fish burp still happens with this one.. Fish burp is the only reason I can't consume fish oil from costco.

The only product on the market that I can consume that has higher Omega-3's would Be [Carlson Labs Norwegian Cod Liver oil] (http://www.amazon.com/Carlson-Norwegian-Cod-Liver-Lemon/dp/B003B3P4PO). Lemon burps dawg..

u/Panedrop · 1 pointr/outside

Have you looked into fish oil? The Omegas turned my life around with zero negative side effects and arguably it's otherwise quite good for you. Plus it's way cheaper than any of the three anti-depressants I was on when I was younger. This [merchant] sells my favorites at a reasonable cost although it tends to vary quite a bit.

u/grimeMuted · 1 pointr/depressionregimens

Selegiline is probably the most "nootropic" of the antidepressants currently being prescribed in the U.S. Transdermal is expensive because the generic is not available yet, but is more potent than oral and doesn't necessitate dietary restrictions even at the highest dose. You'd have to do a full washout/withdrawal from the SNRI, though.

I'm unconvinced by your fish oil choices. If you're drinking a bottle of that Souvenaid stuff per day, you're getting 2280 DHA / 1020 EPA in total, not 1080/720. An unopposed -1 g of EPA appears to slightly worsen depression, while the most consistent positive results are clustered around 1 g unopposed EPA.

Not to shill, but this is the one I use - labdoor, amazon at 2 capsules/d, so 1 g unopposed EPA, but you'd need to take 3 or 4 if you wanted to keep the Souvenaid - which is no more expensive than the 3x Blackmores, anyway. I do eat a fair bit of fish which generally have more DHA than EPA so I'm not sure what my true unopposed EPA is.

Eat eggs and go out in the sun. Your body uses the sunlight to convert the cholesterol to vitamin D... if you're low on cholesterol your body can't make vitamin D no matter how much time you spend in the sun.

It has numerous benefits, but the main reason (imo) is that it fights inflammation. Will help recovery and joint pain. Most recommended doses are way too small, I try to get between 2500-5000mg of epa/dha per day, so someone your size would probably need more. So if you get the big costco bottle with pills that are only 300 epa/dah per pill you'll need to take like 20 of them :D I prefer this stuff:

I take a fair amount of this, usually 2-3 tablets at a time (2000mg each) and have never had even the slightest adverse feeling, no burps, no stomach ache, no nothing.

If you are having an adverse reaction to something like this maybe you have an allergy / sensitivity to the fish oil or maybe the pills themselves.
