Thought it would be interesting amid all the recent debate on this site regarding the possible benefits of Vit A to find who takes it, how long they have taken it and what benefits they have felt. Or what other supplements do you take and how do you feel they help? Personally I am open to all suggestions of natural and or alternative supplements. After all just how little does traditional medicine offer us? Its easy to do your research, ask questions then decide for yourself. I would be much more concerned with side effects from prescribed medication than I ever would be from adverse effects from vitamins taken as recommended. I wonder what the statistics are deaths from prescription versus deaths from non prescribed medications/supplements? I'm lucky in that I don't need to take any prescription medication Yet over the years when I have needed anti biotics etc I have had more than one big time, nasty reaction. About a month ago I bought an oximeter (my DLCO is 47%) when I exercised which is daily my oxygen would drop to 85/87 on inclines though it would bounce back quickly....then I decided to start taking VIt A 5,000 IU and CO Q 10 100mg daily. I will be doubling the Vit A to 10,000 IU daily. Whether there is a connection/benefit after taking these supplements for such a short time is debatable but I find I........ touch wood.... feel better. What benefits do I feel? Well last week I had a sinus infection. I never have a sinus infection/head cold that doesn't go to my chest after 48 hours. Not this time! What does that mean is my immune system functioning better? I also used the oximeter a couple of days ago and on the same inclines my levels didnt drop below 91. I look forward to reading what you have to share about your experiences. Hugs Suz xxx
