For Red - about my mother

This week my newly eighty year old mother went into hospital to have a wire removed from her knee-cap broken two years ago after a fall in the ice and snow.  Then she ended up in intensive care due to the doctors not knowing about her acid reflux problems: she inhaled some stomach acid.

She was rather worried about this weeks minor op in case she needed another general anaesthetic and the same thing  happened again.  Well, they managed to do it with just a local anaesthetic, but discovered in the process that she  didn't have acid reflux anymore so needn't have worried.

And what had she been taking that might have cured this?:  just lots of vitamin D, calcium and CoQ10, recommended and purchased by her elder daughter, who has nearly all her own friends on at least vitamin D and CoQ10.................Sarah

This is so wonderful!  I am thrilled for your mom, not surprised, and once again, am swept away by the unheard-of events that happen here in our world of amazing-things-that-can't-possibly-happen.

And, yes, another salute to our dear Red, who brought this even more to our attention.

Sarah,

these are great news, and thanks to Red!

Slowly but surely people in my project are more interested about the supps  first and the therapy.

Even though there are no improvements the last months,I keep on going.

Gosh, Sarah.   That's excellent news.   I'm so glad to hear it!  

My dad (late 70s) swears by the stuff now too, takes 8,000IU a day, and now has all his friends on it.   He says for him, most importantly, all his aches and pains have disappeared and he no longer gets spring allergies.   Also, after watching his PSA levels rise for several years (even while he was ramping up on Vit D), they are now on the decline.  Good news all around...

His calcium levels are just perfect too, btw, although this wouldn't be all that surprising to us... Wink

So glad again to hear about your mom.   May she enjoy many, many more good years of health!

My mother is like a mule, she won't take supplements.  It is nice to hear your mother is so open minded!

 

Just last night sent out some more info on Vitamin D telling my family peeps how much D I take encouraging them to increase their levels & to get a blood test which will likely show low levels even if in the normal zone.

 

Thanks Red!

peace

Great to hear about all the positive parental feedback! 

I'm surreptitiously increasing my mums dosage as we speak. She was on the 2,400IU caps, which I've just substituted with 5,000 IU caps. Let's hope she doesn't notice (except by the good effects it gives her).

Ruth its taken me years to get my mum to start taking supplements. My advice would be to start off with something thats guaranteed to give quick results. For my mum it was the methylation supplements (active b12 & active folate). My mum reports that she is sleeping the best she has in years.

 

Hunter: Don't think - experiment

Thank you, everyone!  My mother was always someone who didn't like t take anything regardless of the fact that it might be good for her, but now she is a convert.  She even buys a lot of it herself.  In fact she insists on so doing.  I do know that she isn't just saying she will then not bothering because I do all the ordering!.................Sarah

thanks guys, I will forward some info about the B12 & folate via my Dad for her information.  My Mum calls them pills, not supplements but she suffers from alot of pain.

Ruth, my mother used to be just like yours but now that she sees some benefit I think she is aiming to be the first person in the family to live to be 100!  I think she might make it.................Sarah
