All this stuff worked for me so I don't feel like I need meds.
I do eat a good amount of protein, but it doesn't really help . I got my lab work back and I found out that I do have thyroid antibodies (which I'm sure I knew) but my levels are normal, Vit D is borderline. I found Alive at Wal-Mart and got it per your recommendation lol , excited to try. How much Vit D did you take in total daily (Alive has 1,000 IU which seems adequate daily, I'm assuming). I'm considering also using Ashwagandha (I saw it on the forum for increasing mood stability + concentration) either the pill or a mild tea for now. I have diabetes so meds have been inevitable for me and levo did help when I had a low thyroid level, but since I have so much tiredness and exhaustion and my levels aren't low, I'm hoping the multivit + herbal supplement helps; otherwise I might take extra vit D like you said.
