Fatigue studies (CFS?): Merit of mitochondrial tests e.g. ATP-ATP, ANT/AAC, Mg-ATP, mito. O2 util., Zn/Cu-SOD, Mn-SOD, GSHPx? Any viable treatments?

Fatigue studies (CFS?): Merit of mitochondrial tests e.g. ATP-ATP, ANT/AAC, Mg-ATP, mito. O2 util., Zn/Cu-SOD, Mn-SOD, GSHPx? Any viable treatments?

No proven Rx: CFS remains a puzzling problem and there is no specific test to pinpoint the cause. I have a feeling that your tests were ordered by someone not in traditional medicine . There are many ways people with CFS may obtain relief but supplements (if that doctor wants to sell you some ) are not likely to offer proven benefits. . ...Read more

Stage4Cancer(started in breast mid-late 50s female)do u think "Biotech nutritions-Pure Graviola 1300mg"gelatin free dietary supplement would help her?

Probably not: Stage 4 breast cancer requires a lot more than just a dietary supplement. Its very important that she follow her oncologists recommendations. If she wants to to try a nutritional adjunct, there are total immersion programs for cancer. Some examples are Dr Lorraine Day's 10 Step Program for Cancer Treatment and Eden Valley Institute of Wellness. These are both great adjunctw. Best wishes! ...Read more

Medical Records state, GASTROINTESTINAL PROPHYLAXIS W/PROTON PUMP INHIBITOR & DEEP VEIN THROMBOSIS PROPHYLAXIS W/SEQUENTIAL COMPRESSION DEVICE. What does that mean?

Precaution care: It sounds like these are precautions taken to prevent surgical or hospitalization (bedrest) complications due to inactivity and not eating. Stomach acid is reduced with proton pump inhibitor meds and deep vein thrombosis caused by venous stasis prevented with a device that wraps around the calves and squeezes intermittently. ...Read more

Permanent airway...: First, congrats on making to age 7 a preemie who has obviously had a rough time of it. Child is on great meds and therap.

Neurologist and author, David Perlmutter, claims that gluten causes Alzheimer's. Can someone provide journal references on research that proves this?

Neurologist and author, David Perlmutter, claims that gluten causes Alzheimer's. Can someone provide journal references on research that proves this?

Fully disagree: There is NO solid evidence anywhere that gluten causes Alzheimer's disease, and there is NO relationship with Celiac disease and dementia, but Celiac disease does cause a Peripheral Small Fibre Neuropathy. We have some anecdotal cases of gluten sensitivity affecting MS indirectly, and maybe transient worsening of other conditions, but no Alzheimer's links. ...Read more

(1/10 of a slice of bread)The most dramatic and accepted confirmatory test for celiac disease is a small intestine biopsy. The biopsy test would be most reliable when someone has had a gluten challenge. ...Read more

Clarifying allergy ALL NSAIDs, need safe topical. Some natural ings act as NSAIDs. Is Topricin safe? Ingredients on topricin.com, tab in prod desc.

Depends: Since you did not mention nasal or sinus polyps, I presume that you do not have Aspirin exacerbated respiratory disease in which patients would react to all NSAIDs except Celebrex (celecoxib). There has been no study on whether topical NSAIDs would trigger systemic symptoms and thus the answer is unknown. It appears to me that you need a good neurologic and orthopedic evaluation. ...Read more
