We are now believers in taking bio acidophilus after illness. Despite my scepticism it seems to improve energy levels after infections treated with anti-viral or antibiotics. It is prescribed by many doctors on the European mainland but not in the UK. Here it is available in health food outlets rather than pharmacies. I know and believe all the arguments about how the acid in our digestive system breaks it down before it gets to the gut but it still works. DH was prescribed some medication over several months a few years ago now that made him very low mood and he admitted to having suicidal thoughts. I told him it was a vitamin supplement for about a fortnight before things suddenly improved, and continued to do so, restoring him to my husband!
Can I join this challenge please? Grocery shopping is my weakness. Since this is my first month I’d like to keep my receipts and monitor what I spend then set a budget from February. Hope that’s ok.
