I over supplement. I know it and I hate it. And sometimes I don't have the mortgage because of it!
I take stuff to sleep, to digest, to have good BMs, to train better, to not have allergies, to not fill in the blank. Fortunately not yet for sex, but it seems that every other aspect of my life has a supplement attached to it. Yes, I have weaned myself off these things slowly, and other times cold-turkey. What happened? I didn't sleep for months, no period, completely screwed up digestion, etc. I grew up on an extreme SAD way of life, never had normalacy. Never slept. I was always sick. I have had major illnesses (I'm really surprised I'm still walking this earth), and a pituitary tumor, which even though gone, left my hormones all out of whack. I have been off SAD for 10+ years, off gluten for 4 years, experimented with just about every meat-free diet out there, and now Paleo for about 6 months.
So my question is, how can a body go back to a "normal" human life if it's something that's never been experienced, not even as an infant? I'm also one of those hypersensitive folks - my body responds to things far sooner than my mind understands why.
