Post by ofonorow » Tue Oct 17, 2023 6:35 am

That book was Ending Aging, but Aubrey Degrey. On my list to use kindle to post his explanation why vaccinations MUST lower immunity. Stay tuned.

So a miracle happened today, on my Wife's 71st birthday! She has Parkinson's +Plus.

The following is the message I just her neurologist.

She is going into Elderly Care. Yesterday, I had left a long dissertation including her experience using the nicotine patch, which we had taken off at night following the instructions on the insert, and I introduced her doc to the basic B1Therapy for Parkinson's, and told her that we would be starting that very day. In case the Short-Term care facility asked her about both.

Next Morning. Wow! I left the nicotine patch on (didn't take it off when she went to bed). And I gave her the first sublingual Thiamine (B1) pill around noon. I was tired and went to bed with her around 7:00 p.m. When I felt her getting out of bed to pee, I looked at the clock, it was 3:00 a.m. 8 hours! I thought she had slept 8 hours (but noticed that she was not wearing her diapers, which meant she had gotten up by herself at some point. At least I got 8 hours of sleep in a row for the first time in, I really can't remember! To make it even more surprising, after we went back to bed, we had a lucid conversation for over 30 minutes!. She was completely lucid. Going over old memories, me asking questions. Normal conversation, no hesitation in speech. Usually she seems to be trying to remember the question, and I always get "Yes, I mean no." I think I'd always get both answers because she doesn't remember what I just asked and knows one is right. Such a dramatic change after only a single dose of the vitamin B1 therapy is almost beyond belief. Marianne goes in for her assessment, and I hope you read yesterday's dissertation before the facility calls for your sign-off/Approval. I should also mention that I ran across an all natural way to reverse Alzheimer's, which we had to modify given her incontinence. Much lower dose and frequency. Just recently we increased that dose and frequency. I am feeling good about the future
BTW, I got further into the book, and sublingual B1 has the same 100% success rate as the B1 injections. Slightly different frequency.

eDOC, you must have done it again? I was going to read and then respond to your last post (now gone) before posting the following:


My wife has already recovered in many respects, especially in the most important respect of sleeping soundly for at least eight hours. It reminds me of the very first customer of Tower Laboraties Heart Technology (way back when they put Aspartame (NutraSweet) as the sweetner!)

Our very first customers was poor Eli Raber with intractable heart pain/angina. He had had all the treatment that modern medicine could give him (multiple bypass operations, etc. but no more saphenous (sic?) veins for bypass) and his cardiologist said, "There's nothing more we can do for you, you might search the Internet for answers." (Hoping, I suspect that Eli would find an EDTA chelation doctor.) Instead, he found us, at that time I was the phone contact for Tower Labs, and within one week on the therapeutic dose of Heart Technology, his "intractable" pain went away, gone forever. (But he was so afraid that pain would come back, he didn't tell us for six months!)

I had no idea there were heart patients like this, living but in constant pain.

Thus began my career Practicing Medicine Without a License.

My wife slept soundly again last night - she has never snored, but was so quiet I became afraid she had passed and that I had a corpse lying next to me. I feel the need to keep from getting too excited, this may be only temporary, etc. even as she is cured before my eyes. I put the details in the following Mychart to her neurologist. Who is a Physician Assistant, not a M.D.




Doctor,
First we are not sending Marianne to Short-term care for a month. The price for one month of Memory Care is $7600. We simply could not afford it and the way direction Marianne seems to be heading, she is sleeping soundly for 8 to 10 hours straight through the night, (the last 3 or 4 nights) and her phenomenal improvement in bladder control, she may not have to leave for me to get rest.

I'm going to share what I've learned. You might find this important during the trip.

Part of the equation is the nicotine patch. We have discovered that it works best for her, with Parkinsons Plus, when worn during the day (per the package insert) but it should be taken off when she goes to be for best results. (I am taking nicotine for another issue, and my issues start when I take off the patch. I wear the patch 24/7) I will share a link to a disturbing documentary where you will learn a great deal about the value of nicotine treating long-haul Covid. Something like what I am dealing with. The apparent answer for the sleep all night and bladder control, and general awakening, is the vitamin B1 therapy.

Everything you need to know is in this concise book:
https://www.amazon.com/Parkinsons-Thera ... 146&sr=8-1
The disturbing link that tutors on Nicotine will be the next message. Since I have a little room, cont.


. the etiology and treatment for Alzheimer's can be found in the eighth major MEDICAL MEDIUM book BRAIN SAVER by Anthony William

https://www.amazon.com/Medical-Medium-B ... 151&sr=8-9

The disturbing documentary entitled THE ANTIDOTE concisely covers Nicotine's value and use for Covid19. Ardis references everything he talks about.

https://rumble.com/v3ln577-the-antidote ... e-eve.html

It occurs to me that you are unlikely to be able to use this knowledge under our current medical system. The way of the world, especially a Vitamin B1 treatment, that does not even require injection. (We are using the sublingual Thiamine HCL, per the exact company recommendation in the book. One difference is that I am giving Marianne a one week every day loading dose, before adopting the recommended 3 times per week (MWF) dosage.)

However, you might keep in mind that should you decide to take this knowledge into private practice, you might wind up with one of the largest neurological practices in the country, probably marketed as a Holistic Neurologist. No need for MD, as Marianne first went to a large Chiropractic Neurologist. Large practice that the Chicago Blackhawk profession hockey teams sends their players after head injury. Their array of high-tech brain evaluation equipment was phenomenal.

Discovered this video on natural solutions for Parkinsons by Dr. Bryan Ardis.

minute 40 for powerpoint with summary of natural

Key ingredients taurine, B-pollen/(quercetine), selenium (600 mcg to 1.2 mg), nano particle gold (foreigh protein cleanse), nicotine, NAC

https://rumble.com/v4iq1a3-episode-03.1 ... nsons.html

We have kept on the nicotine, and just started Taurine and NAC.

Will increase the selenium per Ardis's reactions.

Will add the quercetin and colloidal gold.

Again, always sad the eDOC removed all his posts in this thread.

After reading Coleman's book RETHINKING PARKINSONS DISEASE, I am now thinking that most of my wife's remaining symptoms are due to anadamide (or lack thereof). See : https://vitamincfoundation.com/forum/vi ... hp?t=16072

Here is her status report before she begins anadamide.

I learned about Lion's Main mushrooms and their ability to stimulate/regenerate nerve/brain stem cells. My wife began taking 2 grams per day (1 g x 2 times) on May 15, or 4 weeks ago. There has been a positive change since then, especially w/r to her incontinence. But she still has balance issues, a stiffness on the right side of her body, and memory and verbal issues.

To recap, we are stilling taking

11.5 mg nicotine patch daily
100 mg vitamin B1 subliminally (now daily)
Medical Medium Heavy Metal Detox Smoothies (based on information in Brain Saver) Now more regularly.

Added Selenium, and we are about to add methyl-folate (based on Coleman information this nutrient is required to metabolize dopamine)
Added Lion's Main.

I April we both started using the LifeWave patches, especially the X39 stem cell generating patch. We also regularly use the X49, AEON, Altavila patches, and less frequently, the Glutatione and Carnosine patches.

Some time in May I cut my wife's prescription levadopa in half (2 pills versus 4 pills) without obvious detriment. I did substitute with natural dopa mucuna pruriens (velvet bean) and the DOPA Plus from Pure Products, (a natural dopamine supplement that allowed us to stop coffee without a headache.) I may try to wean her entirely off the prescription depending on what happens with anadamide.

We are exercising (light weight lifting) but I think I know enough now that more strenuous exercise is required to stimulate anandamide, and I'm looking for ways to increase her heart rate.

Owen, I removed since I thought they were uninteresting. I'll try to recapitulate and some more regarding Parkinson's. All posted is based on my clinical experience of observing, treating, curing it (which includes my dad). Not from any links etc.

Causes and Pathophysiology:

1. Genetic: Usually causes late onset more prevalent in males, vs females. In women at times have mixed features of neurodegenerative disorder vs. pure PD, e.g. Multiple Sclerosis and are highly susceptible to develop ductal carcinoma of the breast (IF untreated properly).

2. Stress: Is the biggest trigger in developing early onset disease (late 40, early 50s), leading to viscous cycle of high cortisol secretion and it's related adverse effects like depression, loneliness, skin changes thinning, muscle loss, mood swings, social isolation, gait issues, finger movements, balance, gait disturbances, gum disease, neuropathies, hair loss, greying. Auto antigen formation and auto inflammatory responses targeting mainly the neurological system and the rest of the body. Decrease in both types of immunity, and disordered T cell responses causing damage.

3. PTSD: Again causes both early and late onset. Makes changes on MRI scan, short term memory loss, indecisive nature, outbursts, etc.

4. Pathogens, chemicals, herbicides etc.


Course of disease:

If left untreated can leady to severe gait, balance, fine movements symptoms, stiffness, muscle rigidity, neuropathies, cardiac issues (fibrillation, arrest) (cause of adrenochrome accumulation).


Treatment remedies:

1. Niacin/Niacinamide, Glutathione pushes etc. all provide a temporary improvement, i.e. conversion of excess Glutamate to Glutamine which occurs both ways in normal but blocked in PD.
2. Mobility, exercise helps, weight reduction if obese is important.
3. Most importantly is relief of stress, staying away from anything that triggers it in an individual which differs. People with it at times are unable to cope with stress and small daily chores seems like a mountain.
4. They should involve in activities that relaxes and elevates their mood, like in one of my patient long drives, movies, intimacy, occasional liquor in moderation etc.
5. Any vascular issues like atherosclerosis should be treated and cured.
6. Removal of dead neurons, is highly important.
7. So is regeneration, as a clinical neurologist I have found IV DMSO to be highly effective, in several ways.(It has no adverse side effects but only a side effect that is odor that goes away after 3 days). debris removal, neuronal regeneration, excess Glutamate and adrenochrome removal, improvement in rigidity, stiffness, and much more.
8. Persons suffering should not be left alone on the mercy of L-dopa, loneliness, isolation removed, exposed to outdoors, kept happy and satisfied.

All these have to be done simultaneously, if one wants a cure one needs to make changes in a big way. These not only improve conversion of excess Glutamate but increases dopamine production. That's how I treat and cure my Parkinson's patients, now. Well for my dad I did employ stem cell....'06 than I had none experience of using DMSO on human to treat disease.

eDOC!!



PS: I do admire the Russian chemist Alexander Saytzeff for discovering it, and Jacobs for starting to use on humans....

Owen, missed a few in the earlier reply.

Since '06-14 have infused approx. 50K 2.8 gm vials of Glutathione from Wellness in treating various diseases besides Parkinson. I use to see it magical effects within 5 mins, mostly improving tremor, reducing rigidity etc. Now have switched to a DMSO push, since it has far more benefits, most mentioned earlier, one important to me is it's detoxifying chemicals, heavy metals, artificial ingredients, in our daily lives to which are exposed too.

Today after having done with a patient with Parkinson's, on road to a cure, I decided why not give myself another 8 mL push. I witnessed its results in less than a min. My stiffened muscles relaxed, peristaltic movements began, mind calmed and neuronal hyper excitation, mood elated, like if I was turbocharged/ running on NOS could run a marathon, sudden surge in libido and my dark colored skin turning lighter all this in 1-2 mins and lasting.

Another cause for Parkinson is UNCONTROLLED, both lytic and non lytic NETosis.

Every PD patient differs in clinical symptoms, but if one understands and takes ALL the steps mentioned it is easily controllable, and curable in 3-6 months.

Hi eDOC
I have a question which may or may not be related to the topic- lots of press in UK about nano plastic particles in all human bodies, causing chaos.
Would DMSO being an organic solvent help rid the body of these?

Hi jimmylesante,
Am totally sure about the detoxifying abilities of DMSO, having used and witnessed in the last 14 yrs. It is extremely smart in detecting and removing anything unnecessary, harmful, toxic to a human body. It will remove any plastic nano particles mentioned. But the route has to be intravenous.
Hope that answers your question.

eDOC!!


PS: If I had the time I could easily write at least 1 book, though it deserves more, min 3......to know EVERYTHING about this miracle drug. Best found in 36 yrs of practicing med, a little too late though.

Re: Parkinson's disease!

Post by ofonorow » Wed Jun 12, 2024 12:14 pm

Recapping David Coleman's book RETHINKING PARKINSON'S, he credits the "Bowen Therapy" and a homeopathic hydration product (AQUA - made in Australia) as the most important elements of a full recovery. These, after his basic "self help" steps, which seemed designed to stimulate the neurotransmitter anandamide. (Note, thanks to a poster in another thread, there are products called "Anandamide" but contain none of this neruo transmitter, and instead contain various herbs. This is very deceptive. Once I verify that the product I purchased for my wife contains the actual hormone, I will post the brand.)
After trying many forms of bodywork during my journey with Parkinson’s disease, I found that Bowen therapy, combined with the Aqua Hydration Formulas and self-help activities, brought the greatest benefit, providing I (or my patients) were fully engaged in all other self-help activities discussed in this book.

Coleman does explain that depending on the neurological condition, there has been massive loss of brain cells, and he believes that it will take three years for Parkinson's patients to recover on his program. (If eDOC's DMSO program works in months, this illustrates the power of DMSO, and the speed is probably due to the detoxing of the heavy metals in the brain.) eDOC you may want to look into the brain/nerve stem cell regenerating power of Lion's Main mushrooms for your patients.

After discussing how focalized hydration problems cause specific symptoms associated with Parkinson's, e.g. dehydrated sphincters can lead to continence problems, etc., he describes the Bowen therapy, which appears to be a form of massage, but focuses on the "Facia" and not muscles. It is also a deliberately very light touch. I'll include a few youtube links at the bottom.


Bowen therapy: “Pumping water”

Bowen therapy is very gentle bodywork developed by Thomas Ambrose Bowen in Geelong from the 1950s through to his death in 1982. It consists of gentle movements across muscles, tendons and ligaments to relieve pain, spasm and stiffness of movement. Tom Bowen was intuitive in his diagnosis and could often correct dysfunction with a single treatment or, at the most, three. He was extremely busy, reportedly treating up to fourteen patients per hour at times; this equated to approximately 11,000 patients per year. He successfully treated all sorts of conditions ranging from intractable pain, muscle spasm, sporting injuries, respiratory problems to arthritis and other chronic disorders.3,4 Most Bowen therapists today do not see patients at the rate that Tom Bowen did during his busiest years. While some therapists may have two rooms in operation at once, many see one patient only at a time and spend from half an hour to one-and-a-half hours in treatment. A Bowen therapy session consists of light movements across the bellies of muscles, tendons or ligaments, then pauses for two or more minutes to allow the patient’s body to make adjustments.

There are a number of hypotheses concerning the way Bowen therapy works. Current research indicates that there are probably two major effects created by the therapist’s moves during a Bowen therapy session. The first is the movement of water through the fascia (thixotropy – the property of becoming less viscous, or more fluid under the influence of an applied stress such as pressure or movement), and changes in fascia.5 Fascia is a protein substance, like the white of an egg, made up of proteoglycans and glycosaminoglycans, contains collagen and reticulin fibres, and fills all the apparent spaces in our body between organs, muscles, bones, tendons and ligaments, and the brain (the dura) – the “gaps” between the various parts of our body that appear separate in anatomy charts.6 Fascia carries fluids, immune system cells and other elements vital to our wellbeing.

During times of illness, injury, fatigue or stress, fascia can become “cooked”, like an egg white, and firmly attached to the muscle or bone it surrounds, no longer allowing free movement of fluid and nutrients. This can create discomfort, stiffness or pain and inhibit our return to wellness.7

The second major effect of a Bowen therapy treatment is a movement of electrical energy throughout the body. This can be thought of as electrical current, qi, prana or life-energy, depending on the philosophy you accept. However we view it, it is vital to have a balanced electrical energy flow throughout our bodies for us to feel well rather than traditional massage.

Despite my training, however, I did not have formal treatment from a Bowen therapist until late in 1997 when I went back to Rick for treatment on my frozen right shoulder. I started treating people with Parkinson’s disease using Bowen therapy and Aqua Hydration Formulas in the second half of 1998. This was very much an experiment because I had used a large number of therapies to obtain my own recovery. However, intuitively and intellectually, I believed that Bowen therapy and hydration were the major therapies instrumental in my full recovery.

Those who have been following this "masterclass" (forum) for years will remember Jerry Tennant's theories that the body uses facia to provide electrical power connections between various organs, primarily via the acupuncture meridians.. In the first video, some of the Bowen experts explain how the Bowen therapy creates piezoelectricity through the facia
Piezoelectric Effect is the ability of certain materials to generate an electric charge in response to applied mechanical stress. The word Piezoelectric is derived from the Greek piezein, which means to squeeze or press, and piezo, which is Greek for “push”.

Owen,

I had a lengthy discussion with Botanist/herbal specialist who owns a mushroom farm, which included whatever I know about your wife's symptoms.
Lions Main 100% original isn't expensive, as per his feed back helps cognitive function, improves memory, stress reliver, relaxant etc.
Anandamide (with neurotransmitters) is slightly expensive, extracted from truffle mushrooms, requiring highly specific environment and its life etc. Price approx. $6K per kg or $200 per 50 gms. Shipping to IL would be an issue due to TSA regulations.
Personally I doubt both these can have any extra benefits over DMSO, which has multiple other benefits besides detoxifying.
It's your call, if you feel that they are really necessary, shall bring them over, if your source for Anandamide fails in showing beneficial effects.
A dormant forum member and my patient (not Nik2201) in Australia, takes a DMSO push every Friday for another neurological disorder and replies that it does wonders.

eDOC!!



PS: Kindly fix a forum issue, where PMs are sent to members not intended. I only reply to members PM/emails, who start a conversation.

Post by ofonorow » Thu Jun 13, 2024 2:43 pm

Edoc, we appreciate the feedback on Lion's Main and Anandamide.

The brand of anandamide that I ordered, but have not received yet, is https://tessmed.com/anaquell/

Again, David Coleman is a Naturopath who once had stage 4 Parkinson's and is now symptom free. Thanks to kindle, here is his basic supplement program.

Aside, it has occurred to me (with absolutely no research at this point) that the reason people respond to high-dose vitamin B1 may be this vitamin's wide range of metobolic activity. Perhaps it necessary to produce neurotransmitters, esp. anandamide.

At the bottom is his recollection of his discussion with Fred Klenner (then living) asking about vitamin C for his then son's leukemia.


Vitamin C (everyone needs vitamin C supplementation – no exceptions)

Take from 4000 mg per day to bowel tolerance (the level that may cause your stools to become soft or loose in divided doses throughout the day of possible.

Folinic acid (5-formyltetrahydrofolate) or folate (5-methyltetrahydrofolate)


800 mcg (micrograms) to 1000 mcg per day are required for nerve health and function, to protects nerve cells and mop up homocysteine. Taking folinic acid or folate is critical if you are taking levodopa drugs (Madopar, Sinemet, Kinson or Stalevo in Australia). It is synergistic with vitamin C in this task. Folinic acid and folate are active forms of folic acid that do not require methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) to be utilised by our body. This means we get more bang for our buck, our body uses less energy to absorb and utilize the folate, and those challenged with MTHFR SNPs (genetic mutations) that inhibit this conversion can still gain the benefits of folate. The metabolism of dopamine creates over forty metabolites, one of which is homocysteine. While we are healthy, this homocysteine is mopped up, converted to methionine which is then used in a variety of sulfation and, indirectly, methylation processes – part of our detoxification and immune function. This prevents an excess of homocysteine which may be cardiotoxic and neurotoxic.

When taking a dopamine supplement (i.e. levodopa drug), our body is not nearly as efficient at mopping up homocysteine, thus creating a risk of hyperhomocysteinemia (an excess of homocysteine). Taking additional folinic acid or folate will greatly reduce this risk.

Vitamin B complex or a multi vitamin/mineral complex with high-dose B vitamins

It is best to find a supplement including the active forms of the B vitamins. Most members of this group of nutrients require energy to convert to active, usable forms, unless we take the active form directly. Vitamin B1: thiamin diphosphate Vitamin B2: flavin mononucleotide or flavin adenine mononucleotide Vitamin B3: nicotinmide adenine dinucleotide Vitamin B5: pantothenic acid converted to coenzyme A Vitamin B6: pyridoxal 5’-phosphate Vitamin B9: 5-methyltetrahydrofolate Vitamin B12: methylcobalamin, cyanocobalamin, hydroxocobalamin – may assist in handling stress, maintenance of energy levels and metabolic function.

Magnesium

Take up to 5 grams daily in powder form. Magnesium citrate is the best researched and, as shown in that research, the best utilized of all the forms of magnesium available. However, magnesium citrate supplements can be expensive and are not always readily available; I have found, in clinical practice, that mixed forms of magnesium can be helpful for most patients. Many powdered supplements contain mixtures of several types including citrate, malate, orotate, and glycinate. Magnesium powder supplementation can also help improve bowel function. More recent research (2018–19) is indicating that magnesium threonate may be more efficient at crossing the blood/brain barrier and so be useful in treating neurodegenerative disorders.4 Magnesium in sufficient quantity reduces spasm and cramping, is required for brain health and many other body functions, may assist with rigidity and promotes a better response from bodywork. While it is best to obtain our required magnesium from foods, this is not always possible as our needs increase vastly with inflammation, stress, illness and some medications.

Mag Phos tissue salts (magnesium phosphate prepared as homeopathic dilutions but without potentisation) is also helpful in specific circumstances, especially as a first aid therapy for cramping, stiffness and some pain. While soaking in Epsom salts (magnesium sulphate) or magnesium chloride baths is excellent for detoxification, and rubbing with magnesium oil may help relieve muscle pain, transdermal absorption of magnesium is very poor. An Israeli study comparing no supplementation, oral supplementation and transdermal application by measuring serum magnesium levels showed no increase in serum magnesium when applied transdermally, while a literature and data review found no good evidence for claims made for transdermal magnesium absorption.5

Vitamin D3

Many of us are deficient in vitamin D now that we are so frightened of sunlight. Campaigns such as “Slip, Slop, Slap” in Australia, and the apparent war against sunlight exposure waged by cancer authorities and organizations around the world has reduced sun exposure below healthy levels for many people. It seems ridiculous that, in a sunny country like Australia, we have an epidemic of vitamin D deficiency with its associated health challenges of autoimmune and inflammatory disorders, some cancers, mood changes, neurodegeneration and bone disorders. It is sensible to avoid sunburn or other skin damage from over-exposure to hot sun so, in hot climates, limiting time of skin exposure and covering up at other times is a sensible strategy. However, many sunscreens contain carcinogenic chemicals so are best avoided. It has been shown that we need early morning sun exposure over about 90 per cent of our body for ten to fifteen minutes daily to create sufficient vitamin D for health. This is critical when we are otherwise unwell.6 Sensible sun exposure can have a profound effect on our mood and willingness to participate in healthy life activities.

A disorder called SAD (seasonal affective disorder) occurs most often in the northern hemisphere in countries where sunlight is scarce during winter months. Treatments include light therapy and vitamin D supplementation. I see some patients in Australia with signs of SAD because they avoid sunlight as much as possible. It is often useful to supplement with vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) and monitor your blood levels annually, aiming for the very high end of the standard/normal range. Take 1000iu (4000mcg/4mg) daily or 5000iu (10,000mcg/10mg) three times per week, or as advised by your healthcare practitioner.

Zinc

This is a mineral often deficient in most Western diets. It is particularly so in Australia where zinc has been leached from our soil over many millions of years. Zinc is required for thousands of enzyme functions, cognitive function, prostate health, skin health and immune integrity. Many people with Parkinson’s display a high concentration of copper, above levels recommended for health. While we need trace amounts of copper, higher levels can be damaging. Healthy levels of zinc in our diet or moderate zinc supplementation can block the absorption of copper in the gastrointestinal tract, thus reducing our copper burden. Where zinc appears low on hair or urine mineral analysis (or copper is high) zinc supplementation is a useful strategy and may obviate the need to remove copper by more assertive means.

Take 30mg of elemental zinc or as advised by your healthcare practitioner. Zinc citrate is an easily utilised form.

Probiotic

There is a great deal of focus these days on the performance of our gut microbiome (the bacteria that live in our gastrointestinal tract). The number of bacteria and other microbes existing in our gastrointestinal tract possibly equals, or even outnumbers, the number of cells that compose our body! Trillions of microbes living together in harmony, all working to create a healthy environment for digesting food, creating neurotransmitters and other micronutrients, and keeping us healthy. Or so we hope. In practice, complete harmony is rare in our modern world. Food production methods, eating habits, stress and pollution all conspire to create imbalance and disharmony in our gut. We often see overgrowth of undesirable microbes, or those that should exist in very small numbers for balance, while more beneficial microbes are destroyed or suppressed. Microbe numbers can be closely defined through stool tests, but symptoms of imbalance are often present yet overlooked. Gut imbalance can produce fatigue, digestive discomfort, constipation, diarrhea, yeast overgrowth (candida is common), increased flatulence, indigestion, reflux, abdominal and back pain, headache, brain fog, reduced production of neurotransmitters (such as dopamine, serotonin, anandamide and others), anxiety, depression, skin disorders, halitosis, body odor and general malaise. Food is, of course, our first choice to balance our gut function and reduce symptoms. Fermented foods like sauerkraut and kimchi, or yogurt/kefir made from coconut or almond milk (unpasteurised and with no added sugar) may be helpful

For mild symptoms and/or suspected imbalance, a general maintenance probiotic from the local health food store may be sufficient. However, where symptoms are significant and are not corrected with dietary adjustments, it is best to consult a healthcare practitioner skilled in the management of gut microbiome. In general, this means a naturopath, holistically trained nutritionist, integrative doctor with training in nutrition and microbiome or a dietitian with post-graduate naturopathic training. Conservative practitioners such as medical doctors, gastroenterologists, conservative dietitians and medically trained nutritionists tend to focus on symptom reduction by using drugs or .....


A recent addition to the available probiotic range of Lactobacillus reuteri DSM 17938 as a single strain in modest numbers is proving to be most helpful in balancing gut and bowel function. L. reuteri DSM17938 has proven helpful for those displaying both constipation and loose stools, plus assisting with general gut dysregulation. There are other L. reuteri supplements marketed, so make sure you get only L. reuteri DSM17938.

This is Coleman's first-hand account of his recollection of his discussion with Fred Klenner (then living) asking about vitamin C for his then son's leukemia.

One of the great pioneers of vitamin C supplementation for many disease states was Dr Frederick Klenner (1907–84) from North Carolina in USA. Dr Klenner treated many thousands of seriously ill patients, adults and children, using mega-doses of vitamins, including vitamin C. Dr Klenner used high-dose oral and injectable sodium ascorbate, even though many of his papers speak of ascorbic acid. His wife, Annie (née Hill Sharp) has stated that Klenner did, indeed, use primarily sodium ascorbate, but his papers describe the active therapeutic substance which is ascorbic acid.1,2

I was desperate for information on vitamin C therapy in 1980 when my son was diagnosed with leukemia, and I was lucky enough to speak for over an hour with Dr Klenner via telephone. Dr Klenner was most helpful, gave me a great deal of information about how best to use vitamin C for my son, and rejected any idea of payment.

One rather surprising piece of information was his warning about using high-dose mineral ascorbates and their effect on mineral balance. Klenner’s experiments had showed that, when sodium ascorbate is absorbed by the body, it splits into ascorbic acid (which is what we want) plus an ion of sodium which is unstable, links to another sodium molecule, and is eliminated. He found that, when using very high doses of sodium ascorbate, his patients lost sodium, sometimes to a worrying level, and needed sodium supplementation. He later found similar effects when using calcium ascorbate orally.
