This morning, for the first time in 7 days, I woke up pain free.

Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

I just found some boneless sockeye salmon in spring water and glass!  Sockeye is a diamond for me and glass has no BPA.  Yes!  


Where did you find the salmon in glass?

I've been taking my supplements for two days now and I had lots of meat and veggies for dinner last night. I don't think either one of these would have worked without the other as I was getting lots of meat and veggies when the migraine started and the supps with no food only helped for a few hours.

The best thing about not having pain today is that bone broth I used to make the soup actually helped it go away.  I was concerned because concentrated broths, like the one I make, can have MSG in them created by the long reduction process.  The fact that the pain went away in spite of the broth means I can use it without trepidation.  

The lab work has been authorized and can be done any day I choose, I just need to show up at 8:30am after having had nothing but water after 10pm.

I'm debating whether I should have it done tomorrow or stop the supps again and have it done next week after they've had a chance to exit my body.

Does anyone have any advice?  Will two days of supplementation have any effect on blood/urine work?   I don't think it will but I don't know.

I wish I could have had it done while I had the pain but I didn't have the authorization then.

Oops, I misspoke, much to my dismay when I went to place my order.

I found the following, both made by Tonnino (Google them, they're everywhere):

Yellowfin tuna (a SF for me) packed in water and glass.

Sockeye salmon packed in olive oil and glass.  Not organic or EVOO.

I'm trying to decide which would be better.  Sockeye is diamond for me and I think olive oil is a lower risk than either mercury or BPA.  The tuna is cheaper and yellowfin is lower in mercury than albacore.

Quoted Text
http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2010/04/100421075203.htm:

Mercury levels are significantly higher in bluefin akami (sushi from lean, dark red tuna) and all bigeye tuna samples than in bluefin toro (sushi from fatty tuna) and yellowfin tuna akami samples.

Although yellowfin tuna is very lean, this species tends to have lower accumulation of mercury, likely because yellowfin are typically smaller than other tuna and are harvested at a younger age. Furthermore, yellowfin are tropical and do not thermoregulate like the warm-blooded bigeye tuna and bluefin tuna.

Because bigeye and bluefin species eat three times more than yellowfin to maintain their energy level, they might bioaccumulate, or slowly increase the level of toxins over time.

Quoted Text
http://www.eatingwell.com/nutrition_health/nutrition_news_information/essential_oils:

Mark Kantor, a food scientist at the University of Maryland, and a nutrition communicator with the Institute of Food Technologists. Kantor, who regularly reads federal pesticide surveillance reports, notes that “pesticide residues in food oils are negligible.” Organic oils are also certified to be free of genetically modified content, which you may choose to avoid.

http://www.foodsafetymagazine.com/article.asp?id=3873&sub=sub1:

Production of olive oil has a tendency to concentrate pesticide residues in the oil as it takes four kilograms of olives to make one kilogram of olive oil.

What do you think?

Victoria, should I start a new thread for this or add it to the sardine thread?  I don't think it should stay in this thread.

That's a good idea - to start a new thread on canned fish, etc.  Thanks!  Interesting topic.

for me the magnesium really helped.. read the other threads.. But for approved testing.. unless you are really concerned, I would do the searching in you.. as to what caused it..

You will eventually find out what you did or do to cause it.. Dr's most often, only know what you tell them.. tumors do not hurt..  nor do other brain things..

Muscles in the brain or starting from the intestines out are much more likely to cause headaches.. magnesium deficiency is much more likely the cause of slow digestion causing internal gas that travels up to the brain / ergo pain//

my family members with migraines and trygeminal headaches all have bathroom issues..Taking painkillers only worsens this..  I am believing Magnesium worth a try.. at least add eating pumpkin seeds..

What lab work are you having done and why do you think your supps will affect the results?

When I go for lab work, I fast as indicated, but take all my supplements on time the day before, then take them again after the blood is taken.

When I go for lab work, I fast as indicated, but take all my supplements on time the day before, then take them again after the blood is taken.

I asked for the works -- complete blood count, comprehensive metabolic, cholesterol, thyroid, vitamin D, and dexa.  The GP wouldn't authorize the indican or adrenal test so I'll have to get that through the naturopath.  Naturopaths aren't licensed in Illinois, and I doubt our insurance will pay for any test she requests, so I wanted to get as much as possible through my GP before I went back to her.  

The reason I wanted to do the lab work without the supplements is that I'm trying to determine what supplements I truly need.  The ones I currently take are what I think I need, based on what I've read, not on what testing has shown as a deficiency.

I have my lab tests from 15 years ago, when I didn't take supplements, and wanted to see what measurements have changed. Fifteen years ago, everything was within the normal range.

One month without supps will give me a baseline, I think.  I'll adjust as indicated and then repeat the tests in three months.  That should show me whether the brands and dosage I'm taking are effective.  I don't mind augmenting with supps but prefer to get nutrition from my diet and don't want the supplements to mask any deficiencies.

I won't be tweaking things like turmeric and green tea but I might need to adjust my levels of magnesium, D2 and calcium.  I also don't want the algae supps to mask a need for iodine since my diet is so high in cruciferous veggies.  
  
Are my assumptions incorrect?  I don't want to 'treat' conditions that don't exist or ignore conditions I'm unaware of. I realize that bloodwork won't show everything I need to know but it's a starting point.

You're preaching to the choir!   I currently take 800mg of ionic magnesium every day; and 8000IU D3, and 15mg K2. They're all liquids.  I take them on an empty stomach and hold them in my mouth for a minute before swallowing so they go directly into my system.

I think I got this migraine because I stopped taking the supplements for a month in preparation for the lab work.

You have received good advice, but I'll add my 2 cents worth.
I still take supplements. Since I don't eat dairy at all, I do take calcium, magnesium & a few other things connected with them. I also take a multi, some anti-oxidant vitamins & a few minerals like chromium & selenium.  I take a lot less vitamin C that I did years ago, as I am sure cetain avoids caused problems to make me need it (e.g. dairy causing URIs).
I also eat a lot more olive oil than my SWAMI suggests.  If you crave the creamy sauces, make them out of brown rice flour with olive oil. They take longer to cook & aren't the same as wheat-based gravies, but they help the craving.

As for delayed detox:  In 1982, I made some big dietary changes & got healthier.  Then in Feb., 1983, I got a very bad case of the flu.  It must have been a delayed reaction detox of some kind. I only had the flu a few times in my life before(I was 35).  The next time I got the flu was late December 2008! I had a milder case recently also.  

Yup, we are all so different.  BTW, I don't recommend the flu shot.  If we keep our immune systems up, we can fight the normal germs that come along. Good old handwashing, etc. do work.
That should be another thread!
