vitamin D for bowel cramps?
I just ordered Natpro from you and keep reading all that I can from your site while waiting for my order.
My problem for 19 years has been an out-of-whack digestive system, brought on by an emotional shock. Since that night I have only had one 'well' day in 19 years.
They eventually thought it was my gall bladder and took it out - and then the real fun began.
My digestive problems got so bad that for the past six years I've basically become a hermit. The details are too long and too many to go into, but you've caught my attention with some things that you've written, as well as some questions on your questionnaire, so I just want to touch on a few things:
A few years ago I started having the strangest anxiety attacks whenever I was in a car (not close to a bathroom) which would then become a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Then because of the consistency of those attacks, my mind naturally becomes anxious now even if I don't have a physical attack when I'm going out the door of my house - and because of the anxious mind, then I can also get the anxiety in the body. Vicious cycle.
I really have lost the desire to leave my house.
But I've even begun having those strange anxiety attacks when I'm home, with no plans to go out.
Along with that I've experienced regular (what I call) liver attacks in which I bloat up, my back tightens so much it feels it might break, the pain in the front is unbearable and I've wondered a few times if it might kill me.
This lasts for a few hours up to a couple of weeks.
No doctor has been able to figure anything out with any of this over all of these 19 years, and in all of the years of my researching - and all of the thousands of dollars I've spent on alternative remedies - nothing has helped.
I've read enough on your site to convince me to try - one more time! - to get a breakthrough.
But I want to make sure that I really understand something that you wrote to someone else:
Are you saying that bowel cramping and pain, etc. is caused by lack of vitamin D?
This starts for me approximately five minutes after getting up in the morning.
I assumed it was excess bile from the lack of a gall bladder, and have tried to eat some bread to absorb that, but I'm not sure if it does much.
I also assumed that the sudden weight gain in the past two years and complete inability to make it budge one inch was a delayed reaction from lack of a gall bladder, but I now realize I was naive in thinking I'm too young for peri-menopause (I'm almost 49).
I hope I've given you enough information (sorry if too much!) for you to be able to follow a trail here, for me.
If vitamin D is needed (after so many years, so many thousands of dollars and so many horse pills, nauseating tinctures and clueless doctors doing useless and painful tests, etc., I'm so very reluctant to try even one more thing) where would you recommend that one buy this, and what name brand is recommended?
Thank you very, very much for this site. Also - being irregular at this point of time in my periods, I plan to use the Natpro every day.
Based on the little that I've told you, do you have a recommended dosage for me?
Again - thank you so very much for this site and for your help.
