Thanks so much for your reply. I recently did end a liver cleanse. Maybe it's just all too much stress for my body right now.
I do try to avoid supplements that contain the dicalcium phosphate. I don't think I'm taking any at the moment that have it.
The MSM - I have never taken. I thought I was getting enough sulfur in my diet with beans, etc. But what you bring up is interesting about cell permeability.
The Ester C I have been taking is timed-release 1,000 mg pill taken at different times of the day. I have an unopened ascorbic acid form with rose hips at home I could try. I also had been taking relatively high magnesium...sometimes 800 mg or a bit more. Too much too soon perhaps..after not taking any prior to July of this year.
Guess I have to be patient and hope that things calm down. And I'm very impatient!
Vulcanel - I haven't been with someone since August of 2012, so pretty sure I'm not having a pregnancy scare! I will keep an eye on the blood. I really hate to back off all the supplements though :(
