Anxiety & Depression

Hello! I have Lupus, Hypothyroid and Behcet's Disease. I would like some natural supplement suggestions that might help combat anxiety and depression. I appreciate any information or guidance!

I started taking Vitamin D3 (4000 i.u. per day) and am amazed at how much better I feel. Vit D3 is often called the "sunshine vitamin" and it helps me in many ways. My moods are much better and I don't get tendonitis or muscle aches as often as I use to. Many people with lupus lack vit D3 due to lack of sun exposure.

Magnesium Glycinate has really helped me with my fibromyalgia/lupus pain as well.

Low levels of vitamin B-12 and other B vitamins have been linked to depression. I would recommend taking a good B-complex vitamin daily to see if it helps.

Make sure to check with your doctor or pharmacist before you take any of these to avoid an interactions with your current medication or for other contraindications.

I hope this helps

With love, with patience and with faith, we'll make our way.
