An informal poll:
Are you on any special diet?
What supplements are you taking?
On and off I have done a modified cleansing / gluten free diet, based somewhat on the IFC diet and my own interpretations of what I should be eating according to the principles of TCM. I have not been 100% adherent, but I am planning to try again now that I know I had endometriosis, since inflammation is a big part of that process.
I am taking L-methylfolate for MTHFR, also Vit B6, B12, Vit D, fish oil, Vit E, Coenzyme Q10. I think I am going to start w/ melatonin and L-arginine. Of course, I am also on baby aspirin.
