Following a previous blog entry, one of our Hab It subscribers posted an insightful comment. With her permission, I have posted it below:
“Thank GOD for you, Tasha. I have your DVD and I’m about 3 weeks into working steadily on the strengthening exercises. I have a uterine prolapse and like yourself (and a previous commenter) am an avid runner who truly does NOT want to give it up.
I was devastated when a doctor flippantly told me “well you’re done with that”.
I’m staying with the program. All tests have come back negative – no disease and no other issues – so I trust that my body will strengthen and recover.
Here’s something to consider – I’ve been taking supplemental magnesium for years. Started years ago for migraines, then bronchials, then sleep problems – yes magnesium helps all of those things (even constipation) so I have taken more on a regular basis every day. What I didn’t realize is how many smooth muscles it really affects. I believe the ultra – relaxing (plus active running) has contributed to my prolapse. I stopped the extra magnesium and started your program and have seen positive results in only a few weeks.
Just something to consider. We really do have to be our own doctors – at least our own ‘experts’ on our bodies.
On my first visit I was told I needed a total hysterectomy “immediately.” No other options. For a fit, healthy, non-diseased person. It was terrifying until I got online and spent days on end researching. Thank you for your DVD and all of the help you give online. Your sincerity just shines through – you truly want to help and you are thorough and knowledgeable and it really shows. I so appreciate what you’re doing!”
The message in this blog entry is to ask questions, to educate yourself, and to be cautious with what we put into our bodies. Many of us take supplements to improve our health, but because of the lack of thorough guidelines and recommended dosage information, we may be doing more harm than good.
I have asked a friend and registered nurse to give her input on this post. Feel free to ask any other questions you may have regarding Vitamin D, Fish Oil, Calcium or any other supplements you may take. Our expert will give her recommendations.
