Here is what I swallow every day due to doctor's orders:
-Lots of water.
-Armour thyroid. [on hold - I'll take it later when my adrenals are stronger]
-Pregnenolone. [all hormones are bioidentical]
-5-HTP. [I take the 50 mg version]
-Alpha Lipoic Acid.
-Nystatin using a toothpick end's worth of powder on my tongue three times a day. This one's an antifungal and a toughie.
-Diflucan, another antifungal, but kinder.
-Megadophilus containing acidophilus and other probiotics.
-Apple cider vinegar tablets.
-Aloe Vera capsules.
-Aloe vera juice.
-Zyrtec. [I'll eventually lose this one!]
-The Power Pak.
-Allergy drops under my tongue.
-Amino Acid Complex.
-Gingko Biloba. [not every day]
Swallowing that many pills does not jive with my creative and poetic sensibilities which is why I might seem obsessed lately with charming trinkets. My theory: if you must endure some kind of intense health treatment, make it as beautiful as possible. Notice the above white porcelain tea cup; it is my vessel of choice for aloe vera juice when acid reflux strikes. I remember my morning and evening medication easily, but for the in-between supplements, I jot notes to myself using Good on Paper note pads. Plain toothpicks are fine by me - I love neutrals, but every so often I say, go for cheerful color.
And since I must look at all of those ugly bottles in the kitchen first thing every morning (and more bottles in a cabinet above), directly to the left is this intentional, tranquil scene...
...including a new bar of cinnamon soap to celebrate autumn. I've smelled a lot of cinnamon in my day, but this particular scent is extremely warm and soothing. Our kitchen is a pretty good size, and when I pass through on my way to the laundry room, I can smell that cinnamon soap. I can smell it on my hands for a good hour and it's also highly moisturizing for my über-dry skin. If you can't tell, I give the cinnamon soap five stars and deem it a worthy autumn (or Christmasy) purchase.
