Currently, I do take a few supplements under the advice of my naturopathic doctor.
I'm currently on autoimmune paleo.
Serious allergies: Gluten (I'm celiac), Seafood (Vomiting, anaphylactic, or rashes), Dairy (bloating).
I don't eat: Nuts (I'm not crazy strict on this, I just am following AI paleo about 90% of the time!) Eggs or chicken Nightshades (potatoes, peppers, tomatoes, etc)
My diet: Mostly beef (Grass-fed about 1/4 of the time... Poor veterinary student!)- Occasional bison or lamb or pork Occasional granny smith apple (though fruit free otherwise) or sweet potato Plenty of coconut oil! (2-6 tablespoons/day either with cooked food, or eaten raw/on salad!) Plenty of veggies (mostly broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, celery, green beans, etc)
My supplements: Neuroscience products (Adrecor, Calm-PRT, D-Phenylalanine, Endotrex L-theanine) Standard Process' Thyroid Complex (600 mg iodide) Carlson's vitamin D 1000-2000 IU/day.
Last year, my vitamin D was 20. This year- it was 13 after adding a vitamin D supplement.
I've heard to add Carlson's Cod Liver oil (1 tsp BID)...But I am allergic to fish, and I avoid omega-3 supplements for this reason.
Ps, also on bloodwork was slightly high eosinophils, and hypochromia 2+ (iron deficiency... How?)
I used to have many chronic problems and I only found out about my celiac's disease 1 year ago! I just started paleo 4 months ago!
Can anyone point me in the right direction?
Thank you, Kara
