It's probably a mix of sugar withdrawal and elec.
I use this: [link]
I also drink broth with potassium salt in it usually twice a day.
What about Magnesium Carbonate like in this: Amazon Calm Magnesium Supplement powder ?
Is it acidic (and in this case bad) or is it more like Magnesium Ascorbate (more neutral and not as bad in this case) ?
I take magnesium tea at night and like clockwork there is a BM first thing in the morning. It also helps as a sleep aid and reduces cramping and soreness. I love it. I recommend the citrusy flavors.
I use the unflavored version of this is good.

P.S. in the link below - this stuff is great if you can get some before you go. They also sell it in individual packages on amazon, or you could find it at a grocery store/health food place. Magnesium in this form on the go for me has been a lifesaver during PMDD week. I just pour it in a water bottle. 2 teaspoons. They have it in different flavaz too.
The stress of grad school can definitely do it. Another natural supplement that helps some folks with relaxing/sleeping is magnesium. Natural Calm is the brand I've tried before. It never seemed to make much difference for me, but my husband feels like it helps him a lot.
And hopefully, her masters will finish and everything will be much better - my life got much less stressful/awful once I finished my doctorate.
Magnesium supplements are available in many forms - glycinate, oxide, orotate, etc. - you'll see this at the store! Most forms are not very usable by the body - you might think you're taking 400 mg but you're actually only absorbing 50 mg, for example.
Citrate and glycinate are more bioavailable forms. This is the one I recommend the most: [link]
You could be protein deficient. Try eating a couple eggs before bed and see if it helps.
Another thing to try is Calm. Put half a teaspoon in hot water and drink after it dissolves.
Have you tried CALM? I used to take it every evening to help settle down for a more restful sleep. I'm not using it as consistently these days but I do take a spoonful (in water) whenever I'm feeling particularly keyed up.
I literally drink salt water when inducting to avoid keto flu. This obviously only helps with sodium intake so, I will supplement with potassium pills and a magnesium powder (CALM -[link]). Another (more tasty way) is to drink chicken or beef broth 1-2 times a day. This helps with all three of those electrolytes that are affected by ketosis. Cheers and all the best to you and your goals.
I like magnesium citrate specifically for anxiety and sleep. I actually take this brand for insomnia: [link] it doesn't make me sleepy necessarily but I get racing anxiety thoughts and I find that it helps me calm those down, and that in turn makes it easier to fall asleep. More like it quiets my brain so I can try to sleep, instead of straight knocking me out...best way I can describe it is like the feeling you get when coffee finally wears off. Except even if I didn't drink any coffee lol. There are cheaper versions of it too as well as flavored if that interests you!
I have read that gylcinate is easier on the stomach but I never had problems with citrate so can't personally comment on it.
This is a weird one - have you been check for adrenal fatigue ? Look into that.
This one had a really good impact on my life in terms of being in a calm alert state after I wake up. Most supplements you hope are good for you like Vitamin D, B12 etc since their effects tend to be long term and harder to measure. But this one is different - you will feel the short term impact on your mood, stress levels, focused energy levels almost immediately, something you can't say for a lot of other mineral or vitamin supplements.
Again, these are experiments. You will have to try many things that you think can make sense to you and see if it works.
This will work better than any fiber supplement
Just don't overdo it unless you want those rock-solid sausages to become a flowing river.
I picked up Natural Calm Magnesium from whole foods about a year ago. It has made a big difference for me. Good luck!
This is really good advice. Epsom salt baths are sooo healing. I use 3 or 4 cups in a bath and let it soak in for 90+ minutes (3 or 4 episodes of The Office haha). There's also a supplement I sometimes take called Calm that is really good for you. Beware magnesium can give you the runs pretty fast though. Magnesium isn't present in most foods and it's essential to healthy human function so it's important to include it in your routines.
Magnesium supplements work for me.
I really want to try this drink, but it is a bit high for my budget at the moment.
Do you usually get enough of all the macronutrients (fat, protein carbs)? Do you get regular periods? Is there anything you can eat that won't make you feel awful? (simple carbs like banana or white rice?) It can become a vicious cycle when you get depressed, you stop eating because you're depressed, become more depressed because your body doesn't have enough food, and so on. You're on the thin side, but if you've always been that way/have a small frame & still get your period then it's fine. Try the b complex every other day (in the morning!). Magnesium can calm you down if you're prone to anxiety, in fact the largest supplier of powdered magnesium markets it under the name Natural Calm. I take it at night to help me sleep. Do you sleep ok? Sorry about all the questions.
Besides all the wonderful psychological help, on the physical side: Eating more magnesium might help too. I get bad tremors (especially when stressed) when I'm low on it.
Natural Calm helped me a lot with my own anxiety and general shakiness. There's lots of good flavors, but I prefer origional mixed in with whatever I'm drinking. Usually I make my own electrolyte drink, also I'd stay away from most sugar alcohols!! I find aspartame and sucralose/splenda makes me jumpy, irratable and grumpy. Sometimes paranoid too...
(Also, I advocate the keto diet, r/keto, honestly almost all my depression and anxiety goes away when I'm following it, there's lots of other testimonials saying the same thing)
As for mental advise: when you're home alone talk to yourself, read out loud, get comfortable saying things!! Most of my social anxieties were from being incapable of speaking well; being positive/practicing in no-stress situations made a world of difference to me.
Edit-also wanted to say that my shakiness started when I was in college too, I tracked it basically to when I started eating cafeteria food (read: corndogs, pasta, ramen noodle, and very little salads) all the time insted of my mom's cooking.
Try taking magnesium before bed. It helps me relax into sleep, and I always feel refreshed when I wake up. No drowsy effects. https://www.amazon.com/Natural-Vitality-Magnesium-Stress-Original/dp/B000OQ2DL4/ref=sr_1_10_s_it?s=hpc&ie=UTF8&qid=1537392329&sr=1-10&keywords=magnesium&th=1
This stuff makes my bowel movements like Christmas presents. Also magnesium is important for other reasons.
Here's the Calm. I just get the regular stuff w/o calcium or any other additions. It mixes into water better. It's a little tart, but not a bad taste at all, and you get used to it. Price is a little high but it lasts forever. Unless you're a big fan of having a lot of BMs every day (speaking of, go easy on it at first and experiment w/ it when you know you'll be home. Because it does make you go). I've also seen this at every grocery store I've ever frequented...it's a pretty commonly accessible product. And for CoQ10, I just get whatever gummies I can find. I like the peach flavor.
Ignore fluffy branding, see ingredient list: just magnesium
Oh geez that isn't good. If you can try to find this at a local supplement store, as well as some teas. In the meantime make sure she's drinking lots of water. Is she suffering from sleep deprivation?
Oh, my gosh yes, magnesium citrate. This is my favorite, and it tastes like lemonade: [link]
Looks good I like this for magnesium I dont like taking pills if I can help also you can get a lot more gaba if you order the powder this is what I have
I like getting my magnesium from leafy greens like spinach and chard. Here's an article.
Natural Calm is a great magnesium citrate. It's a powder, but you mix it in water. Tastes good, too.
> I didn't suffer any acute withdrawal symptoms, but after a couple weeks, I had a more severe bout of depression than I've ever experienced. It lasted weeks. All but impossible just to go to work.
Ya, Nicotine will do that, along with many other substances.
Good thing you stopped though, it can be linked with worse things like schizophrenia.
Personally, it helps me to remember that eventually my body will flush out the toxin and "this too shall pass". (drink lots of water - smoke some bud if you can - I live in CO, so you know).
> But I'd never heard the two linked on the genetic level, although the mood stabilization could be the link.
If you can get your hands on other mood stabilizers, like magnesium supplements. Like this here or even just try an advil or a Tylenol until you ease back to normality; give that a shot, see if it helps.
This shit has changed my life. Never thought I'd be able to poop on the regular again XD
My doctor didn't, but my mom (who has POTS too) went to a specialist who did recommend this magnesium supplement. We both drink it now.
Green vegetables and avocado for potassium. This for magnesium.
