HRT mess!

I could post the following in any number of current threads but decided to create a separate post so as not to muddy the others. (BTW, hi and hugs to all my old friends and amazing new members. Our site is like no other and far superior IMO :).) The back story: I started the .1mg estradiol patch and...

Re: Julie - and Dr Bredesen - on Dr Oz show tomorrow

Brought me out of lurking to say thank you both so very much! I too really believe you've reached possibly thousands who thought "this is what's happening to me" or even spouses, partners, family, roommates, etc., thinking those thoughts. I'm going to go so far as to say maybe, just maybe,...

Re: Prolotherapy

Thanks all; it's been a rough two weeks. I ended up on prednisone; never again! No sleep and other harsh side effects, BUT it did significantly reduce the pain and got me out of the bed and stabilized. Julie, surprisingly, according to cronometer, my omega 3:6 ratios are good...shocking to me :). Th...

Prolotherapy

Hello all, I'm once again considering orthopedic treatment for long standing joint pain. It's body wide due to hypermobility (faulty collagen issues that I inherited from my mother). Currently, I need to address the low spine area (facets, SI joint area). I've been bed ridden for nine days now and t...

Re: Does lowering Homocysteine lower CVD Risk?

This is timely for me. I stopped taking b vitamins a couple of years ago and did not realize the very real elevated homocysteine effect. My dr pulled a lab in January and I was at 15. I began retaking vitamin b spectrum and yesterday received new lab results and my level is now 7.6. I did wonder yes...

Re: My APOE journey

With regard to your list of supplements, have you tried or considered NAC (n-acetylcysteine)? That's one of the few I take every day no matter what, along with curcumin.
