1. Initially I am using the Essentials Kit for Men recommendation from Dr. Mark Hyman’s website. Later I may add other individuals or official daily recommendations.
2. I take significantly higher levels of supplementation for Vitamin D due to chronic low D levels. This appears to run in the family – as at least one other sibling requires similar supplementation. I also take higher doses b/c it is included in my Coromega Omega-3 supplement.
3. Dr. Robert Wallace, a functional medical doctor, recommended I take 3000 mg of fish oil b/c of my OCD. I began this regiment on 6/20/12.
4. In the Essentials Kit for Men the multivitamin contains 1000 IU but then there is a separate Vitamin D with 1000 IU, for a total of 2000 IU.
5. Again, this is a separate supplement from the multivitamin.
6. This is a separate supplement due to the fact that my most recent blood tests still show me as low on Vitamin D.
7. This is used as an anti-inflammatory, something I’m having a lot of issues with right now. It is a “natural” alternative to steroids and NSAIDs, though I am also on both of these as well.
8. Folate, or folic acid is recommended as a natural treatment for Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS).
