    I have lowered the dose of Manetabolism to one pill per day. The acne was really getting outrageous. Some days I take two, but I am mostly sticking to one.

    Another update ladies. I have been so busy with work, kids and renovating our house that I put my health and doctors visits on the sideline. I’ve literally pushed back a few different medical appointments for months. Well I finally did my blood work up in early January (requisition was given me in October) and only today did I get in to get my results. I’m low iron and low hemoglobin. Not just regular low but abnormal low. So my doctor has me on a double dose of prescription iron for three months to help me restore and I can move to single dose after three months if gets much higher.

    I’m disappointed in myself because I know I was literally born iron deficient, so of course I should have addressed this sooner and more consistently. My doctor approved my supplement routine but said that my low iron/hemoglobin could be responsible for thin and slow growing hair.

    Anyway, I’m going to delay relaxing for two of three months until this is in order but will continue supplement routine of 2 BioSil, 2,000 mg MSM(I’ve increased since last month), HSN vitamin that includes 2,500 mcg of biotin.

    Still taking my viviscal.

    Ordered some bamboo silica to add to the mix. I really like the silica. Makes my nails nice and strong.
    Just reupped on another Viviscal. Trying to keep it simple. I might add in a multivitamin but I take Vitamin D, vitamin C, msm and a supplement blend.

    I do! (Did):grin:...:up:

    I took them for 12 full months before several years ago.

    But I only bought x2 boxes which I will finish up the 2nd box Sunday.

    I will switch to Phyto or Nioxin or Bamboo Extract next w/10,000 mcg of Biotin.

    I may repurchase another box or two of Viviscal.

    Checking in, I missed one day this week but otherwise I have been consistent.

    This month it seems that my hair grew almost an inch in February which is crazy to me. I usually grow a bit less than a half an inch average (slowish grower). So I should reach one of my goals of APL by the end of April.
