Thanks so much for your fast reply. First to answer your questions I have
had so many pharma drugs & vitamins over the years to be frank & honest I
have lost a feeling of confidence anything I do makes a difference, that
being the question of is my liver overloaded, my candida (if I have it) not
being addressed and so forth? But when I have been consistent I have taken
1000 mg Vitamin C in a chewable, Ubiquinol 100 mg, and just yesterday picked
up Magnesium Oxide 400 mg (thinking it could help with bloating etc.). The
merry go round of diuretics is always directed my way to lessen edema but
have found it seems to dehydrate me as well, thus the question of bloating
in my abdomen??
I have seen so many Dr's from allopathic, specialist, integrative, to even
muscle testing and electrical energy types that you can imagine I get a bit
worn out after 5 yrs!! Of late been seeing an integrative D.O. pushing him
to order the ION Panel Test from Metametrix to give me a baseline of where
my body is at least bio-chemically from blood and urine analysis. He has
also performed some allergy testing to environmentals and found a few things
I am being treated for.
Until my test results come back, I am trying to prepare myself to properly
supplement for what I am shown to be deficient in. One PhD from MIT by the
name of Raymond Francis (beyondhealth.com) says all disease is caused by
nutritional deficiency and/or toxicity. Of course not knowing for sure I at
least have a start on the nutritional side at this point once the test
results come back.
Since Linus Pauling is a respected source, I want to be open to your/his
protocol. I also not being a pill popping guy historically like the fact you
all have laid the ground work on combining some of these nutrients to lessen
number one would have to take. One question I have Owen from my readings of
the Beyond Health site is they offer an L-ascorbic Vit C free from Oxygen in
the processing so wondering on quality how yours may measure up? Also a lot
of discussion out there on Vitamin absorbability as well as synthetic
vitamins vs. natural. Please expand on this for me since I do have an
interest in getting the 90-95% absorbability vs. the 5-10% they speak of
using the cheaper products. I am an old sales guy so understand marketing
and just want the real skinny on this. Now wish I had majored in
Upon your reply I will discuss further with my Dr tomorrow and see what I
can do to move in your direction. I know I do not want the pharma route any
longer although this position frustrates the specialist and allopathic docs.
I have studied the whole healthcare system and its origin and frankly do not
trust in any of it. One does have to careful though to give the body what it
needs it its most natural pure form. Have read several of the excerpts from
Dr Pauling's writings and listened to his audio testimonials and find his
work fascinating, honest in approach, and pragmatic too.
Thanks for your guidance on this.
