Hello HerbPathy team, i want your help. I dont know what i have. Its Hard to know what is going on

Last year i go to the gym i have used Creatine and Protein, i have used creatine for long time i didnt a stop. After that some months ago. In the night of summer i can't sleep more.

Its Hard to sleep, my body is great i feel great with huge energy i dont feel sleepy at all. Its Hard to sleep.

Even if i dont sleep in the night i dont feel tired. But yes with headaches and emoticional, anxiety (spiritual)

I go to hollistic and homeopathic and she says it is a problem from spiritual because i was happen without one reason. Random Day.

I use goldflam from golddlvit because i have crohn disease. It work well, no issies with my health i have this disease since i am younger.

My problem actually is the sleeping. I feel fully energied. I stopped using creatine and protein since months i dont use them. I stopped really.

My body is always with energy, i feel my body great, i dont feel tired even if i do Some exercise. After couple hours im ready again. I can feel tired but only in exercise after that i dont feel that sensation anymore.

You may add leaves of other green vegetables too.
No radish, it might give Nausea.
You may add an orange or apple for taste. Write to us after 15 days. Hope you 'll feel better.

Hi, I feel at night I yawn with mouth, my eyes start to come out tears I use homeopatic sometimes it work, sometimes it wont work. I feel a little pain in the kidneys, is not like a pain is like malfunctioning. I dont know if is liver or kidney. Dandelion helps sleep. I feel a lot of energy and i dont use any kind of steroids or drugs. I use Goldflam from goldvit (it haves cat claw, turmeric, oregano, boswellia)
What is happening with my body? I feel energetic but sometimes i can't sleep well. I think my body have a lot of toxins maybe is good doing a detox. But I NEED to be careful i have crohn disease, chlorella should be good? Its a parasit, kidney, liver? In the past i have used whey protein, creatine no more than that. I STOPPED using that since months.
. Also can be a parasite but with goldflam have a lot of good herbs i dont think that is the problem. I only feel a pression in lower part of the back. Isnt like pain. Is like pressure or kidney working. Im from Portugal Islands.

Other than this have boiled vegetables for your meals. For kidneys and liver malfunctioning, Get a physical diagnosis. Write back o us after that. We will give you a regimen for healthy kidneys and liver. DO NOT USE STEROIDS OR OTHER DRUGS.
