Stop if you have any adverse reactions such as shortness of breath or agitation. Go up in dose only if it benefits. Note: GABA doses start at 100 mg and go up to 500 mg per dose.
Unlike basic supplements your amino acid supplements will be needed only temporarily so here are the signs to stop taking them:
You start to get adverse symptoms, like headaches, tiredness or jitteriness. You stop taking them one by one to see if your cravings or mood symptoms return, and they don’t after one to three months start tapering off. If you try to taper off and your symptoms reappear after six months you should return to your strongest dose. If your symptoms are long standing and run in your family it might take as much as a year before you can do well without them.
If you are coming off of mood medications consider taking the following:
NOW Foods St. John’S Wort 300Mg, 250 Capsules. This increased serotonin activity. Studies show it is as effective as Prozac without the many side effects. Some people do best taking St. John’s wort in combination with L-tryptophan or 5-HTP. Start with Tryptophan and add St. John’s Wort. Remember that this can increase your sensitivity to sunlight.
Get enough exercise which raises serotonin levels. Expose yourself to enough natural light.
Master Supplement Plan
You will need to take quite a few supplements at first then over the next three to twelve months as you establish consistently more nutritious eating habits, you will cut back to six basic ones when you are finished.
NOW Foods True Balance, 120 Capsules: A good multivitamin providing a full range of supplements needed to stabilize you on the program.Take 2 pills breakfast lunch and dinner.
Now Foods Calcium & Magnesium, 250 Tablets. Even good multi vitamins rarely contain enough calcium and magnesium since these two minerals are too big to fit into a multi capsule. Calcium helps with sleep and prevents colon cancer. 80% of us are deficient in Magnesium which is even more vital as it protects us from heart attacks, alzheimers, constipation, low blood sugars, diabetes, eating disorders, chronic fatigue, low thyroid, PMS and osteoporosis to name a few. Take one pill with breakfast or lunch and one with dinner.
Take 2,000 to 3,000 mg of Vitamin C per day.
Source Naturals Pantothenic Acid 100mg, 250 Tablets: Famous for reviving adrenal glands that have been exhausted by too much sugar use and Vitamin B5 is especially deficient in diabetics.
Depression and cravings for alcohol as well as fat can be relieved by the use of fish oil.
For the gallbladder: NOW MILK THISTLE EXTRACT 300 MG – 200 vegicaps This herb is very helpful to the liver and gallbladder. If the liver is clogged with toxins it cannot process fats properly. Try 300mg of milk thistle twice a day to see if that heavy feeling after eating fatty food fades.
