Lioness - Thanks for asking. We are doing gluten free, vegan. i think in our case the gluten free, casein free is the most important part. But son, Jack wants to be vegan and gluten free. i join him in everything he takes. I make enough for both of us, and sometimes for for my husband who is very patient with us, and often wants meat etc.
We also work with an ayurvedic practitioner who provides a super food for Vata body type: wheat grass, dashamoola, spirulina, chlorella, Ashwaganda, beet root powder, cumin, cinnamon, ginger, kelp, stevia.
adrenal tea - to lower stres, non-stimulationg energizer, adrenal support with: Ashwagandha root, Eleutero, licorice root, cinnamon bark, cardamon seed, ginger root.
brain and memory tonic to improve cognitive function and mood: called saraswati chuma - don’t know what’s in it. jack doesn’t take it regularly.
he also gave us a Vata seasoning to put in almost any food:
coriander, cumin, turmeric, fennel seeds, ginger, cinnamon,ajwan, asafetida, himalayan pink salt.
We have a digestive powder - jack doesn’t take and a powder to mix with raw honey for Jack’s asthma.
Other than that I keep adding to the L-theanine - 200 mg capsule - I empty it to put in smoothie, tea, food, and the sarcozine (it comes with a tiny measurer - 2 of these sometimes can be too much - can make Jack a little hyper).
Niacin- have used flush with some non-flush - cause flushing bothers Jack some. about 900mg - not the huge amount suggested.
A good natural mega vitamin - not every day
A good Vitamin B complex - not everyday - sometimes I double the dose.
fish oil -higher EPA than DHA with omga 3 - now using Wild alaskan Fish Oil liquid 250mg.
Lions Mane mushroom powder - full spectrum - both the mycelium and the fruit body. I’m using Mushroom Harvest - found on the internet. 1tsp a day. it tastes like mild chocolate.
We also use cacao nibs.
The ayurvedic practioner was concerned that Jack needs more oils for brain functioning so “Drop of Sunshine” 5000 iu of D3 - not everyday.
We use avocodo, flax, sesame, tahini in foods, oils and seeds.
Buying turmeric in vegetable aisle of grocer, add it to almond milk - grind in high powered blender and add raw honey - heat. Great soother.
I’ve been making my own nut butters which are very rich omega 3s.
i get at least 3 to 5 of the above into jack each day.
Also have just added NAC- another amino acid emptying it out into drinks etc.
lots of brown basmati rice, beans and vegetables with different sauces, curries, etc.
everything is to sooth and lower inflamation.
I do work, but come home for a few hours in afternoon, then go back to work.
this is probably way too much info - but hey - maybe it will be of use.
Best wishes to you.
