I stopped taking it for a while, and then went back to it again, because I started having some bladder urgency. I don't know why my body and mind intuited that the DHEA would fix that for me, but it did. Am I experiencing some sort of placebo effect or is it really the miracle I think it is? I take the smallest amount, about 10mg every other day. I feel like it's kind of a great thing.

I know that DHEA requires a prescription in the UK, is that true for Canada as well?


Sorry for the late reply....

DHEA is available in health food store here in Canada BUT I get mine as prescribed by a doctor so it is a better quality and it is compounded by a pharmacist. NO it is not covered under ANY health insurance.

I see an "anti-aging" doc and as a result of some tests he did, I am on microdoses of three hormones...AND the DHEA as well. The bioidentical hormones are delivered transcutaneously (on the skin in a cream). We are STILL trying to get my thyroid homrone levels to balance out BUT no success so far. He upped everything at last visit and so far I am tolerating the increased dose of thyroid hormone.


The BEST thing I ever did for my health was not in taking supplements ... in was taking 6 - 8 ounces of fresh vegetable juice EVERY DAY. ESPECIALLY green juice. I am at the green grocer every 3 days and I go through bags of kale, spinach, beet greens, chard etc. I also juice something yellow or orange and usually some apple to make things taste better.

Juicing has been much more effective than ANY supplement regime I ever had. My immune system loves it and my skin does too!

Bladder urgency can be related to muscle imbalances in the pelvic region (basically core muscles). That pesky problem has popped up now and again as I am working on core strength. Lately however, it has settled down and does not seem to be a problem.

Try D-Mannose also for the bladder. It can help to rid the bladder of debris and biofilm from old infections. My 98 yr old mother swears by it!

It is available at health food stores and on line too.

I hope this information helps somebody.

Yes, I am, and funny enough I just posted a link to my source in the CBD thread.

Apologies if this is a slight necro, but I've been taking supplements for a while now. I eat pretty healthily, to be honest, but I definitely felt like I needed to kick start my vitamins and nutrients intake.

I don't really go for anything fancy; just some multivitamins and a liquid iron supplement (the latter is very useful since I'm a freelancer working crazy hours some days).

Anyone here using CBD?

Hi max,
Omega-3 Fatty acids help your body function well by maintaining a regular WBC count. Food rich in Omega-3 fatty acids is herring, salmon, other cold water fish, and trout dishes. You can also add walnuts and flax seeds to your diet. Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is believed to be a booster for the production of white blood cells. The general fruits and vegetables helpful in enhancing the WBC count are lemons, pineapples, lime, berries, oranges, bell peppers, cauliflower, and carrots. www.getmomental.com/blogs/guides/how-to-achieve-a-...-cell-count-momental

I have read that Cat' Claw & Astragalus can Raise WBC's over a period of several Months. Don't know if that is True or not.

I have been to my Hematologist several times but she can't Figure out what is Causing my White Blood Count to stay so Low. Normal is at least 3.5 & I'm at 1.3 Neutrophils. I don't eat very much each day. I am wondering if it's Malnutrition that could be causing it. I have had Digestive Problems all of my Life since I was about 5 or 6. Have always had Chronic Constipation.

I just hope Kratom is not Causing my WBC to drop this Low. It has been this Low for the Past 4 years. I have been slowly losing weight over the past few years. I was at 185 lbs. 3 years ago. Now I'm at 155 lbs & I'm almost 6'2". Although I have always been on the Thinner side & carry very little fat.

The last time I was 155 lbs was when I was about 22 years old. I have been up to 205 lbs before from Side Effects from Depression Meds. When I was working out & in top shape I was only 160 lbs. My Body Type is Ectomorph.

What is the most common Problems that Causes WBC to drop?
