Cochrane review of calcium supplementation, which is a routine recommendation
by most physicians, especially for women, shows that it may do more harm than
good. The number needed to treat to
prevent one fracture was 302 and the number needed to treat to cause one major
cardiovascular event was 178. However,
the obvious problem with treatment was not discussed. Everywhere in the body, calcium interacts
with magnesium. If you take calcium
supplements, you should always
balance them with at least half as much magnesium. It is dangerous not to do so.
2015 is a
very good year for children and adults with autism and attention deficit
disorder. Dr. Stephen Kaufman from
Denver has discovered a brain technique reflex that instantly quiets the brain
and lets it focus. This can be learned
by the caregiver or even administered by the patient himself. Dr. Kaufman will be teaching the technique at
a workshop in Denver June 6-7. I will
attend. Dr. Ty Vincent from Alaska
developed a variation of the Low-dose Allergy treatment (LDI) that also might
produce excellent improvements for these problems. A few drops of this allergy treatment is
given by mouth once every two months.
Both of these treatments are available at COHA in Bluffton or Toledo.
