Helpful Supplements While Using Disulfiram

 

This is a compilation of different supplements that can be helpful while using Disulfiram. I will try to keep it separated into different categories based on what issues you may be having but I have also included my top six supplements at the bottom.

I created an Amazon Shop that has all the supplements and the brands I recommend listed to create a quicker way to shop. I only used the brands that my doctor carries because I know they are superior and since this is an unregulated market, we need to be careful. I gave you options with the supplements offered in their pure version as listed on this page and some are combined. I combine where I can to keep the costs down.

You may see some supplements listed in multiple categories, this can also be a more economical way to choose your supplements. My acupuncturist has mentioned that taking so many supplements is stressful on our digestive system, so I try to cut down and only use what I specifically feel is helping. This...

Disulfiram: Bath & Beauty

The largest organ in the body is the skin. I don't think very many people give this a lot of thought but it is a way we both absorb and release toxins so what we put on our body is just as important as what we put in our body. I have been using all natural bath and beauty products for about eight years and finally switched my medicine cabinet out about three years ago. Even though I have been using all-natural, organic products there are still several changes I have had to make since starting Disulfiram. I tend to err on the side of caution because my body is very sensitive and has adverse reactions to many different things but I'm also a rebel that likes to test my limits and experiment with just how strict I have to be!

When using Disulfiram you will need to start reading the labels on all of your bath and beauty products. You will want to read the labels on shampoo and conditioner, soap, shower gel, shaving products, moisturizers, facial skin care, bath products,...

Life on Disulfiram: Food & Products to Avoid

This is a list of all the foods you should not eat while using Disulfiram and for two weeks following. I am going to break them down into separate categories with foods that cause Disulfiram interactions, foods that are high in copper, the high polyphenol foods and supplements that people have experienced issues with, and finish with the ingredients in cleaning and beauty products that you need to avoid.

I think it is important to mention that some people don't change their diet aside from alcohol and they seem to do okay. Every body is different and we all have a unique journey we are on so if you want to continue your normal routine and just eliminate foods as they bother you, that is one approach to take. I already felt like poo when I started this medication and just didn't want to risk anything making me feel even worse so I decided to make the whole lifestyle change.

When I first encountered all these food restrictions I was feeling pretty nervous. I was under the impression...

Disulfiram for Lyme

When my doctor came back from the Lyme Conference and told me this medication was helping Lyme but most importantly Babesiosis, I felt like I had hope for the first time since I was diagnosed a year ago!

Most of the babesia research I have done shows that it is an incurable and deadly disease so there are moments where the struggle seems futile. Then chronic Lyme can also become extremely damaging and debilitating over time. I have read quite a few studies that have determined Alzheimer's is actually late stage Lyme. My future has been a bit scary to think about in regards to my health and aging.

He told me like most things in the Lyme world that the medication would make me feel worse before I feel better, but for a potential cure I was willing to sacrifice! Although I felt like I was finally managing the illness better, this definitely isn't the life I want to live. I felt fully confident I should take the risk and try it out.
