Help! Took Dr Myhill's Mineral Mix in one go, have I injured my insides?

    I just received my order of minerals and supps from Dr Myhill and failed to read the instruction on her MMs mix - rather than dilute with four pints of water and sip through out the day I just diluted them in a small bit of water along with the rest of the powders and knocked them back. (And made an incredible face I should think. Not tasty). I feel nauseous. Have I injured myself by taking them all at once? Anyone else done this before ??? Will I feel sick all day?

    If you took the dose for just 1 day at once, it shouldn't be a medical emergency or anything. If you took more than that, it might be a problem.

    A lot of minerals in one hit may cause bowel upset and other things - they are best absorbed slowly, hence the sipping throughout the day. A single days dose should be relatively safe though. Minerals can however be toxic in excess very quickly ... if you took a months supply at once then it could easily be a medical emergency.

    If it's just one days worth, I don't think you need to worry.

    I'm not sure how good the evidence is that their benefit outweighs the nasty taste though.

    THANKS all. The nasty sickness lasted an hour - hour and a half then subsided to just a bit of nausea. Phew. Won't make that mistake again!

    How much did you take? scoops? she used to advocate taking two doses a day, but I think it upsets some peoples stomachs, hence the more recent advice to sip throughout the day I imagine.

    Glad you are feeling better now.

    zinc (I think) can make me nauseated on an empty stomach.
