Walt: my mother would love your opinion on a full spectrum...

Posted by d.d. on August 13, 2000 at 03:01:37:

...antioxidant that she is considering buying. I didn't want to give her the go-ahead until I asked for your feedback. I've included the link. She's real anxious to purchase it as she has gerd, arthritus and lots of aches and pains. She's in her early 70's and is quite stubborn, I can't get her to do SR, ER4YT, take vitamins, or see Dr. Cathcart. But if she is so gung ho on this antioxidant, it could be a big break for her.

Please let me know what you think.


Thanks a bunch,
d.d.

Hi, d.d.

Old mothers can really be stubborn can't they?

Without knowing a LOT more about her I am limited as to what to suggest for her for an example of how much better she would feel.

Because you mentioned arthritis, I can say the 1000 units natural vitamin E a day, 2000 milligrams of esterified vitamin c twice a day, the esssential oils described on the homepage articles and 750 milligrams of glucosamine sulfate twice a day, would be a good place to start. With this completely safe regimen, she would notice beginning benefits within a week and maximal in a few months. Eventually, she would be abel to get by with a lot les than this for maintenance.

Let us know how she does. The GRJ would help her GERD IF she would DO it.

Hi Walt,

Thanks very much for your response and advice. Yes, these old mother's are something else!

I will tell her about your suggestions, they sound really good, and I will try to have her do those them. I know it's hard to prescribe for someone you don't know much about, so I really didn't expect much of that...however, is it possible for you to say whether or not these supplements are safe, because she wants the tablet that contains these:

Adoxynol (full spectrum antioxidant),
Alpha-Lipoic Acid (potency magnifier),
N-Acetyl Cysteine (promotes body detoxification and cellar respiration) and
BHT (enhances effects of antioxidant)


Thanks again Walt and have a nice vacation from the BB,
d.d.

What is GRJ? And what is Gerd? My mother suffers greatly from arthritis too and her regular ibuprofin treatment had her in the hospital twice this summer while on one vacation. (Lining of stomach destroyed) The meds for THAT then got her in the hospital when she went visiting my brother in Belgium. She will be home in 3 days and I want to show her your web site. She is desperate and willing to look at alternatives now. I want a treatment ready for her to begin.

Hi, Nakita

You can access the glossary/index at top of this post and look up any unfamilar terms.

In the meantime hope this helps you from the glossary.

GERD - Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disorder (see also HH) Walt's Upper GI Symptom Relief (Ginger Root Juice) Article Walt's GERD Q&A Archive
A disorder in which there is recurrent return of stomach contents back up into the esophagus, frequently causing heartburn, a symptom of irritation of the esophagus by stomach acid. This can lead to scarring and stricture of the esophagus, which can require stretching (dilating). 10% of patients with GERD develop Barrett's esophagus which increases the risk of cancer of the esophagus. 80% of patients with GERD also have a hiatus hernia.


GRJ - Ginger Root Juice
Used to treat GERD and HH symptoms, (but not actually the underlying cause). See LGS and CRS for causes and Wellness for permanent cure. No one has any idea of how GRJ helps the symptoms of GERD/HH. All we know is that it nearly always relieves the symptoms for long enough for the person to deal with the causes of the GERD. Fresh juiced GRJ will stay potent for at least 6 weeks in the refrigerator (especially if it is kept sealed in a jar). There is no problem with taking ginger root juice while you are also taking antacids (If you Must - antacids give temporary relief while making the long-term problem worse by leading to mineral deficiencies!). Just be sure that you do not take any antacid within an hour before or 2 hours after taking the GRJ.

Hi, d.d.

What I suggested cannot hurt her. I have no idea what is in the Adoxynol but suspect that it is a little of many of the antioxident cascade. The chances are that the doses are too small to do much good.

The rest of the things you mentioned would help her liver detoxification mechanisms most IF the doses were large enough.

Nearly every month, now, a new antioxident is discovered that is "essential" to the cascade and works in conjunction with all the others. Without knowing more about your mother, I thought I would just confuse her by including all of them.

Hi Walt,

Thanks again for your response. As long as the ingredients in this tablet won't hurt her, I am relieved, because I think she will go ahead with it. (stubborn, remember)

I think it would be a good idea to give you more information about her symptoms/conditions/ailments including the major one -- osteoperosis -- when you come back from vacation. Please let me know how best to do this.

Also, I read that you recommend Chelation for macular degeneration. My father has it pretty badly -- almost no site in one eye, and not so great in the other -- can chelation actually REVERSE these conditions?


Thanks again,
d.d.

Hi, d.d.

Antioxidents are not likely to do much for osteoporosis.

ALL degenerative conditions (of which macular degeneration is a classical one) start by tissue getting sick and finally dying when nothing is done about WHY it is getting sick. Long before it dies, it stops functioning.

Chelation can bring back to functionality any tissue that is not already dead. If there is enough tissue still alive, there wil be very significant improvenment in function!

Hope this helps.

Walt

Hi Walt,

Welcome back and hope you are nice and rested!

Thank you for your last response. It does help. When you mentioned the "cause" of tissue getting sick and dying, I can only assume you meant stress and lack of SR. It sure takes many forms. Anyway, this makes perfect sense to me. Also, if chelation helps whatever tissue is left, it's sure worth a try!
