Valentine’s Day coincided with my three-month checkup with Dr. Steven D’Antonio. Here’s where I stand now:
1) Osteoporosis is no longer an issue! I am no longer taking massive doses of calcium or other bone building supplements. I do, however, take a calcium supplement as part of the Twice-Daily Essentials multivitamin pack.
2) Candida is still a minor problem. I must continue to take FNG 1, but can drop the Candibactin.
3) I addressed the vaginal dryness and discomfort with Dr. Steve. He changed my adrenal support from Adrenal Essence to AdrenaStim cream. The cream contains amino acids, DHEA, and a myriad of herbs, and is to be applied to the vascular areas (palms, behind the knees, in the crux of the elbow, behind the neck) twice a day at 8 a.m. and at noon. He also prescribed a Bach Flower remedy called FEMFLW, for “temporary relief of symptoms related to lack of female expression due to lack of confidence or fear of being hurt.” Dr. Steve encouraged me to keep hydrated by drinking plenty of water. Furthermore, he concurred with Dr. Bourne’s opinion that my cholesterol might be too low at this point, and that I might need to eat more fat. (I will be getting a blood test this week to check my cholesterol level.)
4) Dr. Steve said my diet was “impeccable” and that my fiber was perfect!
Next checkup is in three months on May 16, 2009.
