Additional Advantages

Now that I've laid out the basic framework of supplementation, I'd like to discuss specific nutritional solutions to common problems. This information will help increase your knowledge and awareness of the benefits of complementary medicine. However, these dosages are general recommendations and not specific prescriptions. If you suffer from one of these problems I'd truly love it if you came for a consultation so that you could be provided with a personalized supplementation protocol. Since that probably isn't possible, please visit us at www. Atkinscenter.com for other options.

• For constipation: My preference is psyllium husks. Start with one tablespoon in a large glass of water and increase or decrease the dose until the desired result occurs. Or sprinkle one or two tablespoons of oat bran or wheat bran (if you're not allergic to wheat) over your vegetables or salad. Increased exercise and increased water consumption also help relieve constipation.

• For sugar cravings: 500 to 1,000 mg of L-glutamine before meals and/or when cravings are greatest.

• For hunger not assuaged by being in lipolysis: 500 mg of L-phenylalanine or 500 mg of N-acetyl-Ltyrosine before meals.

• For fluid retention: 50 to 100 mg of pyridoxal 5 phosphate, plus 1,500 to 3,000 mg taurine daily. Asparagus tablets also are effective.

• For fatigue: 5 to 10 mg of octacosanol, three to six sublingual tablets of dimethylglycine, one to three sublingual B,2 tablets or one to three (50 mg) B complex tablets per day.

• For nervousness: 500 to 2,000 mg of inositol, daily. Herbal teas, such as camomile, valerian and passion flower, are also effective.

• For insomnia: Before going to bed, take either of the above vitanutrients or herbal teas suggested for nervousness, plus 3 mg of melatonin. Calcium, magnesium, niacinamide, pantothenic acid, valerian or 5-hydroxy tryptophan may also be useful.
