yep. astrophe. That is exactly what i was hinting at with the hormones. since i gained weight, my adrenals are pretty sluggish. I have been thinking about using adrenal herbs but i can't seem to get something that doesn't mess with my female hornones.
the adrenal issue is also what causes me to get a huge WAKE UP at 10 pm. If i stay up past that time, it will take all night to go to sleep. I sleep better if I get in bed by 10 pm. That doesn't happen very often.
here is a good link, i will try some suggestions. I love seaweed, and find I feel better when I eat it daily...which is interesting because it is one of the recommendations! i also love olives, i like black more than green. so it is interesting that is another recommendation. I like foods with "brine" in them too.
I take liquid B vitamins, and I also take the flinstones type vitamins.
I'm in Nursing School. Stress is my middle name. I really hate 3 pm-5pm. I have been falling in bed and sleeping during those times. I could be up and doing stuff and losing weight!
oh by the way, my green tea pill is liquid and is packed with vitamins and antioxidants and it REALLY helps. I feel so energized. Unlike how a coffee drink makes me feel, i could go right to sleep when it is done.
oh yeah--I think i am going to add spirulina to my repertoire. I have numerous herbs and supplements, but that is one of the ones I think my body is really missing since I stopped taking it.

Pantothenic acid (vitamin B-5) The best is to take some concentrated natural food containing the complete B vitamin complex such as spirulina and add extra B-5 of at least 500 mg twice a day.*** A Natural form of concentrated B vitamins such as spirulina is absorbed and used much more efficiently by the body than multi-vitamins processed and isolated by man-made processes. However, to get enough vitamin B-5, it may be necessary to take a capsule or tablet form of B-5 in addition to spirulina.
