    Hi all! I'm new here!
    I'm trying to find good advice about nutrition from those in the science world.

    My diet consists of protein, vegetables and ready meals (microwave).
    I suffer from anxiety, depression, low sex drive can be quite obesseive and likes to be exact and know things properly. I've also suffered on and off with spots, and use to have bad acne.

    I dont take any meds at all.

    For the above I've wondered about nutrition. Maybe some of my issues are due to diet? I've started taking 15MG of zinc per day (i've read it can be good for spot healing etc.) 2 weeks later i'd say my skin currently looks really good and not oily at all. (could be coicidence). I've started taking 500% RDA of Vitamin D as I rarley get out due to anxiety and job (not sure if I should take this a couple of days per week, or every day? Please recommend. I've also got 40% RDA of magnesium as it can help with anxiety and relax you and help with sleep.. so i've read at least. But not sure how often I should take that?

    I welcome any advice and comments about this. Is my nutrition supplements safe to take and do you think they'll benefit me?

    Of course suffering from anxiety, it’s easy to get in to a panic attack thinking im taking too much and it will kill me! PS. I spoke to an online doctor and he actually recommended I take 1000mg of Vitamin D; however, it seemed a little high?

    I welcome any advice and comments about this. Is my nutrition supplements safe to take and do you think they'll benefit me?

    Thanks

    Stop taking vitamin supplements, get some outdoor exercise and cultivate some friends. Sunshine will get rid of the spots and will make you feel better too.

    Thanks for your reply. I wish it was so easy to simply go outside, but the anxiety is what prevents this. Are these supplements 'bad' for you or 'dangerous'? I feel as though they're helping, I feel happier, higher sex drive and no spots. But I want to make sure I don't over do it? Perhaps I should take them 3 days per week instead of each day? Please advise.Thanks

    No. If you're in that bad a way, you should be talking to your doctor about it, not asking fro help from anonymous people on discussion forums. Your health is a serious business and needs to be handled professionally.

    MODERATOR INTERVENTION : This is public science forum. While we are happy to answer any questions you may have with regards to nutrition or health care, under no circumstances are we in a position to substitute for advice given by a qualified health care professional. If you are concerned about your physical or mental health, your diet, or the impact nutritional supplements have on your body, we urge you to go and obtain professional advice. The owner, administrators and moderators of this forum are not responsible for how scientifically accurate posts made here are, or how this information is utilised !

    To all posters - do not ever dispense advice on this forum as to how a drug or nutritional supplement is to be dosed or taken in response to a question, no matter how qualified you think you are. Such advice has the potential to put people in real danger, and posts of that nature will thus be removed without prior warning.

    Markus, to be honest, medication is something different than someone taking supplements. Supplements should add to one's health. However this is not always the case. Sometimes it just runs straight through and has no effect. Even sometimes it builds up in the liver or kidneys and may cause problems. In moderation, all supplements are fine. You cutting back on your supplements should not have that much of an impact. Unless it was medically advice to do so, in which case don't mess with it.

    Some people are actually qualified in this and may advice people (myself, i have a nutritionist/lifestyle coach diploma). I may not be able to prescribe medication, but nutrition is another thing. I can point out MANY topics of which similar answers were given. Like how much sunlight we need, how much exercise, how much water we need to drink etc. ALL IN THE SAME CLASS AS NUTRITION. I do agree that one should never take this forum as a source for scientific truth. It remains a forum where trolls roam..
    Growing up, i marveled at star-trek's science, and ignored the perfect society. Now, i try to ignore their science, and marvel at the society.

    Imagine, being able to create matter out of thin air, and not coming up with using drones for boarding hostile ships. Or using drones to defend your own ship. Heck, using drones to block energy attacks, counterattack or for surveillance. Unless, of course, they are nano-machines in your blood, which is a billion times more complex..

    True, but I got worried, after the second reply, that this poster might have a psychiatric condition requiring medical attention.

    Thanks for your reply. I'd be really keen to message you about nutrition. And like you say, nutriton and meds are two totally different things.
