I was just going to post my recent findings with Epsom salts and the ammonia issue! DS's pee has totally changed from being kinda smelly to not at all. (He still wears a diaper during the night so that's how I can tell.)
We are all about
the Epsom salts here.... thanks for that website Shannon!
I'm considering a 50lb order from Salt Works.
This didn't work for me but I only got up to 5mg I think. 5HTP didn't work for either myself or DS. Jarrow's methyl B12 5000 sublingual however was the BOMB for getting me to sleep at night and sleeping better. When I did the research I concluded it was B12 which produces melatonin so that I why I tried it for that reason. I still take one every week or so just because.
Re: supplement purchasing
I adore IHerb. I'm now a VIP so I get 10% off $60 orders and 12% off $120. I've been ordering monthly for many years and only had 2 problems which they quickly corrected. If anyone wants my referral code to save $5 off first order, PM me.
Otherwise I get our CLO from Radiant Life and DS's salmon oil vitamin D from Vital Choice. I just use whatever vitamin D is lanolin derived D3 I can find. I've done Carlson's drops in past... Tanya would those work for you guys? I've been getting a free bottle of 30 - 5000 IU from IHerb several months in a row, they have a Free and Trials section that's always fun.
Re: another d-lactate free possibility?www.culturelle.com
is human strain L. Rhamnosus and is now dairy and FOS free, I think it used to have trace dairy and FOS?
Aren't you all so proud of me I combined my thoughts into one instead of serial posting like I usually do??
Oh and the yeast problems I've been noticing I think were not b/c of going GF but b/c our basement flooded again. And we have a hole in ceiling above our lovely bow window in the dining room from someone's refusal to fix the gutters and resulting water damage from this year's heavy rain and snow.
I have many stories like this. I have no doubt mold is central issue in DS's and my health. Oh but I'm just crazy dontcha now. And I overdo things. Everyone's basement floods, and smells when the forced hot air heat comes on. Everyone has a roof leak here and there don't they?
I cannot wait to get the &^% out of this house!!! At least I won't be sad the husband will be getting our (once) beautiful center entrance colonial in the divorce.
