Thank you Dr. Lynch, This discussion is very helpful about when to back off, and how to prepare the body to respond the best before adding methylfolate. My son could not tolerate much methylfolate to begin with, so we backed off, added some of your optimal turmeric and optimal start for about 3 weeks, and then proceeded to start with the methylfolate and add slowly from there. He is on about to 3mgs currently. We would love to able to recommend to him a multivitamin, but I am concerned about giving him your multi because it combines niacin and methylfolate. Doesn’t that pose a problem together? Won’t the niacin cancel out the methylfolate in the vitamin as well as the excess methylfolate he already takes? What are your thoughts about this, and can you recommend what to do? Obviously, our son is getting niacin in his diet already, as well, but he really needs a multi. Thanks
Another great way to treat and prevent side cramps while running is to use proper breathing techniques. Often, people breath too shallowly during running, especially during periods of intense effort. This can contribute to a decreased amount of oxygen intake, causing possible side cramps. In order to head this off before it even starts, be sure to take large, deep breaths. For best results, be sure to inhale through your nose and exhale through your mouth as much as possible. This will ensure that you are following the best breathing techniques.
I also have a fatty liver. I have a fairly normal diet, with lots of fresh fruit & veg and drink about 2 litres of water a day. My alcohol intake is almost non existent and I am a non smoker. I am 157cm. and weigh 116kg (which has been quite rapid) – I have a moderate exercise regime. My Dr. tells me that I am high end stage of the disease. Since being treated for Breast Cancer in 2001, I now have a non functional thyroid gland, for which I am on medication and also on Cholesterol medication as well. Except for the weight gain I am keeping well. I am 55 yrs of age. My question is would I benefit from following the fatty liver diet/liver cleansing program? What other foods should I add/delete from my diet?.
