Dr. Bob said there was grave danger when a person had an alcohol problem or had a background as a heavy drinker and then went into the hospital. According to Dr. Bob, it is not common knowledge at hospitals and even with doctors that glucose by infusion, for someone with an alcoholic problem or an alcoholic past can kill them!
The following are the ideas and opinions of Dr. Bob. The methods he uses are called orthomolecular medicine. This is using mainly vitamin/mineral and herbs that are natural, non-toxic, and safe in wide ranges of dose. Before using any of these ideas check with your own physician before you make any changes in your treatment.
Dr. Bob said take a B-50 in the A.M. and P.M. or a B-25 right before infusion. Even a modestly weakened system should be able to safely tolerate a B-50. Dr. Bob said these are only rule-of-thumb guidelines. For specific cases consult an orthomolecular physician.
Attention - "Nutritional deprived alcoholics are thiamin-deficient and if given glucose exhibit rapid accumulation of pyruvate and lactic acidosis, which is frequently fatal! (Ref. Robert K. Murray, MD, Ph.D., Daryl K. Granmer, MD, Peter A. Mayes, Ph.D., D.Sc., Victor W. Fodwell, Ph.D., Harper's Biochemistry, 25th Edition,. Appleton & Lance, Stanford, Connecticut, 2000, Page 197.)"
Note � In order for these anti-aging ideas to be successful, you must use supplements of the highest quality. Dr. Bob often said, "almost all supplement companies produce poor quality." You can consider the product page of this web site. Almost all the products met Dr. Bob�s approval. Since he passed away we have attempted to keep the same high standards.
WARNING: DO NOT STOP ANY TREATMENT OR MEDICATION YOU CURRENTLY USE. CONSULT WITH YOUR DOCTOR BEFORE STARTING THE USE OF SUPPLEMENTS.
