I am new here. After following Andrew Saul for a while and getting his book Doctor yourself just last week, I started taking Vit C on Saturday. I bought a bunch of supplements and vitamins he suggested in book but only taking a few as of now. I am 49 yo femaile, not aware that I have any major health issues. Have not been to a doctor in about 3 years now- no health insurance. Have had chronic back pain since 2005, MRI shows dengenerative disc, osteoarthritis, nerve impingement but no bulging disc-not sure exactly what else is on there without finding paperwork, had gallbladder removed in 2006-2007, had fallopian tubes and one ovary removed in 2005-ish, had a mouth full of fillings and after 2 plus years of tooth infections and teeth just breaking off, got them all removed and dentures in 2012. Have always ate SAD up to about a year and a half ago, try to eat more fruit and veggies, organic foods, grass feed local meats, low processed foods, barely anything that comes in a box or a can, majorly reduced sugar consumption. hoping to help back pain get better and improve my memory and concentration, and just getting healthier, sorry if too long, just trying to give a bit of history. Even with healthy eating I continue to stay constipated-thought I would get pretty cleaned out with Vitamin C flush. On Saturday I took about 36 grams of Vitamin C, powder , in about a 5 hour span, a little tummy grumple but nothing else. finally stopped thinking i didnt get a good brand maybe. bought another brand on Sunday and started again, took 31 grams in about 3 hours and again nothing. Late Sunday evening i did have a soft BM but nothing like I thought.. I also took a Calcium 1000mg/Magnesium 400mg one time on each day. At this point I am just not sure how much to take, that just seems like a lot to me. Monday I took 5 doses of 4.5 grams about every 2 hours and then 2.25 was last dose for a total of 25 grams. Also on Monday I took 3 doses of Calcium/Magnesium, and took 1 dose of 2000IU of vitamin D, and 3 doses of a B & C complex-meant to only buy B-complex, but vitamin aisle got really confusing. Tuesday i just cut down to 2.5 doses every 2 hours for a total of 15-16 grams, and also added in a 1/4th of a 250 mg Niacin tablet- 3 doses thru day. Have been a bit gassy since Monday but nothing excessive. Just looking for advice on how to proceed. Bought about 5 more supplements that I would like to slowly incorporate but trying to add slowly, so if something doesnt agree with me I will have an idea of what it is, because I have noticed alot of them have lots of added ingredients. Thanks in advance for any advice you can give me .
