It is odd what my brain seems to wonder to. I had been skipping on my fish oil and other supplements. First it was just the mornings. I had been sleeping in until noon-ish and just didn’t bother. Then I was skipping them at night too. Falling asleep to soon, or just not caring. Probably both.
Soon after receiving a highly stressful letter, my body decided to go into flair mode. Yep, I am sure it was due to the lack of supplements, stress and just not taking care of myself. I am now 5 days into the flare. Normally the 3rd day I am fine.
I realized yesterday my neglect for the supplements and started them up again. During this flare, I have had a very difficult time with constipation (I had a prior ‘note’ on this as well). Just now I had a ‘regular’ BM and was so happy. Yes, small things make me happy! Anyway, I was wondering if starting up my fish oil had anything to do with this. The rest of me is still about the same: worse than ever pain, too tired to do much, hurt all over, dizzy, lack of focus, ect. But the BM is much better.
So I did a little research and found out that Omega 3 can help to make you ‘regular’. What ever your “regular” is. It will not speed anything up. Here is the link if you want to read it: http://www.everydayhealth.com/digestive-health/five-home-remedies-for-constipation.aspx
I do want to tell you that I LOVE my fish oil. It is from Natures Bounty and is: Fish, Flax, Borage (Omega 3-6-9) it is rapid release liquid softgel. I only burped fish once and that was because it was that kind of gassy night and I didn’t take it with a meal. Just popped the pill and went to bed. Honestly, I hate fish and the burp wasn’t as bad as I would have thought. Here is a link for info on this blend from the manufacture (other brands make this blend too): http://www.naturesbounty.com/product/010151
So maybe there was something to the fish oil combo I use!! I started it because I was loosing my hair. And YES, it did help that issue. If I miss a few days of the Omega 3-6-9, then I notice more hair loss in the shower.
