Self-Care: My Vitamins & Supplements

Aside from experiencing burnout, I realized I haven’t been taking any of my vitamins or supplements on a regular basis.

I mean, it’s normal right?

When life gets chaotic, sometimes your good habits get replaced by bad habits, such as being over-caffeinated to compensate for feeling like garbage.

I’ve started drinking more decaf coffee and realized I needed to get back on my “self-care” train in terms of my vitamins and supplements.wp-15819386182804575644212040396881.jpgThe only thing I’ve kept up with it my probiotics because my GERD is awful, especially when when I am stressed.

I’ve been take these Nature Made dual action probiotics.

So far, I’ve been liking them, although I typically stick to 20 billion or more (since that is what works for me).wp-15819383587745121913680408541233.jpgSide note, I take Cymbalta for my fibromyalgia, but it also has a bonus side effect of improving my mood. I noticed if I miss two days in a row, I begin to experience pain and get very moody.

I am deficient in vitamin D, so I take 2,000 IU as recommended by my doctor. When I was taking it consistently, I noticed a big improvement in my mood. wp-15819383570558604553901600769881.jpgEspecially since I live way up north.

I take magnesium malate to aid with my pain management as well as help with muscle recovery from my intense workouts. wp-15819383579511056185710328776889.jpgWhen I don’t take it consistently, I notice a difference in my post-workout recovery.

I am allergic to fish/ shellfish, so this is an excellent way to supplement omega-3’s.wp-15818054659393875943873868374950.jpgI like adding in the B-complex because it helps with producing energy, cell growth, not to mention helps with hair, skin and nail health. I am blessed with thin hair, so I need to help myself in any way possible there. wp-15818054650084723001115138222179.jpgI don’t take a multi-vitamin, but on occasion, I’ll steal one from my kiddos. 😉

So I’ve seen a couple of Instagramers I follow doing IV vitamins and I was really curious about this trend.

Ivee is an “on-demand wellness and recovery IV treatment at the press of a button.”

You can choose an IV treatment conveniently from your home and a nurse will arrive to you within 45 minutes to administer the treatment of your choosing.

They recently launched a blog that features articles about the importance of healthcare and overall wellness, as well as offering health tips and more. If you are interested in what having your vitamins through an IV does for you, check out this article by Ivee to learn more.

Now this may come as a shock to you, but I am not a doctor. Please be sure to speak with YOUR doctor before beginning any vitamin/ supplement regimen.

These are just the things that I take for myself with advice from my primary care doctor. Please be sure to consult your doctor before beginning any supplements.

If you have any questions or are curious on any of the products I mentioned, feel free to leave me a comment down below.

Have a great week. 🙂
