I am feeling better today. Slept for 11 hours and scheduled nothing outside of home. I got a lot done and am feeling less overwhelmed. Got caught up on housework, paperwork, phone calls and misc. organizing. I went through the vitamins and figured out, what, cost, when and source. I am still in progress on a few of them, but here is what I came up with:
As suggested in the Wahls Protocol book on page 283
Fermented Cod Liver Oil Green Pastures – Rosita Real Food – $44 for 118-2-gram servings (almost 4 months) Note: I have been taking fish oil as noted below and vitamin E (which is only necessary if taking fish oil instead of this). Fermented Cod Liver Oil is a) better for you and b) half the price. I hadn’t realized that till I added it all up.
$11 a month plus shipping and tax

$18.50 a month

Coenzyme Q10 natural factors – Health Palace – source at shoppers – $20.99 for 150 100 mg caps – 2 per day – (2 months plus 15 days)
$8.40 a month
134.80 total a month using fermented cod liver oil instead of vitamin E and fish oil
146.15 total a month using vitamin E and fish oil instead of fermented cod liver oil
Both these figures are still really high for me, I’d need to whittle the cost down further, a work in progress. Talk about an education in the world of supplements!
I printed this off and posted it with the vitamins. Getting there!
