    I have really good doctors that know supplements thank goodness. So I do not have to guess on dosages and brands etc. I have a schedule of supplements three times a day. Long list. I get really thorough blood tests twice a year, had saliva testing too. Neurotransmitters, vitamins, the whole nine yards. Hormone testing has been very good too.

    Balancing my hormones got rid of my migraines within two days.

    CoQ10 has been very good for my heart rate, bp etc. Correcting all hormone imbalance was the first thing. Bio compounded hormones like Tri est, pregenalone, progesterone, 7 Keto DHEA, Thyriod and cortisol. I take powdered Calcium and Magnesium also.

    Supplements for the immune system like Vit E, Liposomal Vit C, Astragalas, AHCC, Proboost Thymic Protein, Maitake D drops, Vit D drops.

    Supplements to help the adrenal glands like Adrecor.

    The methyl vits like B12, SAMe etc.

    D-Ribose powder two times a day has been SUPER good for energy. ATP under the tongue and Liposomal Glutathione is great!

    Carnetine (Carniclear) and Co Q10 have taken my brain fog away completely. I am sure others helped.

    I take NAC and Resveratrol.

    5HTP raised the Seratonin level so I could sleep and feel good again. It goes down like other things with stress and illness.

    :) Alpha Lipoic Supreme and also the ALA MAX and Benfotiamine is healing my nervous system and helping the nerves in my feet. Has been great!

    Two great things for CFS and POTS for me are Liposomal Glutathione and ATP.

    My multi vitamin is wonderful. Ultra Preventive X by Douglas Labs.

    I add protein powder and First Greens to my smoothie each day. They are full of things that are good also.

    I take fish oil also.

    Antioxidents are SOOOO important, like the above Vit. C and E and A good multi, but the MAIN things to help I think, since I had already been on many things for a year, then my doctor added Liposomal Glutathione by Livon Labs, and ATP.

    All of my supplements are guided by my doctors. Dr. Dzugan is in charge of the hormones. No migraines now. They have a schedule, three times a day for me. They look carefully into the brands for purity also.

    My Probiotic is a good one also.

    This has helped my CFS not be much of a problem now and is helping my POTS that I have had for two years. I was unable to get out of bed for many months, until I could see my doctor and get the tests. Now, I function well and I am happy again.

    For POTS, I stay COOL, do not overdo it, never miss my supplements, DRINK a lot of water, etc. My bp is usually high or normal, sometimes low. Goes up and down. Before my supplments, it was VERY HIGH, that is wonderful that I rarely have it so high now.

    The only presciptions is for my bp, to keep it lower, I am slowly getting off of it. My bp is usually high and normal, not low.

    I also stopped gluten in case I am sensitive since that can affect the nervous system. Cut back on sugar also.

    My doctors are helping me to help the symptoms and support my body so I can heal. I get blood testing twice a year to see how my vit D, B12, and all other things are doing.
