Hi Dr. Hoffman. I hope this is an acceptable venue for this q./comment. Was wondering what the peoples choice is/was for just general stomach upset/indigestion. I used to use maalox, occ. bak. soda, brioschi. Nowadays it`s acv or loads of water. Hope it`s an interesting topic. Thanks.
Does it not violate an ethical grey zone when a doctor prescribes both these medications?
What do you think of this - too early? - real ? - is this BS ? - Thanks -
By the numbers: 2,335: The number of Americans that die from cardiovascular disease each day. 1,660: The number of Americans that die from cancer each day. 109: The number of Americans that die from gun violence each day. 102: The number of Americans that die from car accidents each day. 8: The number of Americans that die from coronavirus each day. .0001: The number of Americans that die from falling pianos each day.
Do N95 masks, when worn correctly, afford a level of protection to healthcare workers but not to teachers, secretaries or anyone else? Is this preposterous, or what? How does that make any sense? It doesn't - it's because we have not prepared and have a DANGEROUSLY LOW SUPPLY. How could the medical staff at UC Davis not take precautions knowing they were getting a patient who potentially had Covid 19? (Some are quarantined now). This is starting to happen at other hospitals as well - before the 2nd NY patient was sent to Columbian Presb, he'd gone to another hospital where safety measures were not taken. Shouldn't all medical staff assume the there is the threat of an infected person could walk in the door at any given moment? China studies and information state it is known to be airborne at times. Also, since this insidious virus has been known to spread from asymptomatic people, wouldn't it make sense for all people to wear even a surgical mask in public in the event they are infected and have no clue they are? While a surgical mask wouldn't protect them if they didn't have it but would protect others if they did but didn't know it? Just sayin'. I think YOU & your staff should think about that if you haven't already. :)
Have you seen this?
Hi Dr. Ron. Just saw a snidbit of an art. in wsj re: aver. body temps changing. Do ya have any further info on it.? Thanks.

So, why is low carb good for renal health, low glucose is vit c sparing. not necessarily optimal vitamin C. Dr. Marik has shown a cure for sepsis with steroid, vit c, and vit b1/thiamine. If you look into thiamine deficiency, it is remarkably similar to the edema of Minimal Change Disease, especially the pitting edema of the legs. ............ 0) The increasing evidence shows that oxidative stress formed in podocyte response to the membrane attack complex C5b-9 induced injury is an important outcome. The attack of C5b-9 on podocytes induces production of reactive oxygen species (ROS), which initiate lipid peroxidation and subsequent degradation of glomerular basement membrane collagen IV, leading to development of proteinuria The increased urinary and serum cholesterol levels in the HUPM patients further proved the deficiency of ascorbic acid and hence the increased oxidative stress. https://bmcsystbiol.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/1752-0509-6-S1-S14#Tab1 .......... o-a) Zdogg interview with Dr. Marik in regards to vit c therapy was very illuminating. https://youtu.be/bZFsT5itk7A 1) The Marik Cocktail on Sepsis , Vit C, Steroids, and Thiamine https://youtu.be/rm30M0y8yJw 2) Antihistamine effect of supplemental ascorbic acid and neutrophil chemotaxis https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1578094/ 3) Total serum protein and albumin levels increased, while decreases in proteinuria and serum creatinine were noted during antioxidant therapy https://scholar.google.com/scholar?cluster=18030181399216745966&hl=en&as_sdt=0,34#d=gs_qabs&u=%23p%3D7m0rYHQSOPoJ 4) affect Vit C defiency on glomeruli of kidneys of another mammal, like us, can't produce endogenous Vit C, a potent anti-inflammatory https://academic.oup.com/jn/article/129/1/83/4723241 5) Steroid sparing benefits of Vit C (in asthma, but relevant to us too) https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/16338599/ 6) Unifying theory of heart disease, Dr. Rath https://youtu.be/VERKQsI2Kzg 7) Vit C ability to lower cholesterol. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2682928/ 8) Vitamin C Inhibits Lipid Oxidation in Human HDL https://academic.oup.com/jn/article/133/10/3047/4687488 9) Yep, it's about birds but the positive parallels can't be overlooked.Vit C reduces/prevents cytokines. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4093194/ 10) Vit C saves coma patient on life support, 60 minutes news clip https://youtu.be/Au-mp6RZjCQ 11) Vitamin C likely modulates serum uric acid concentration via its uricosuric effect. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2853937/ 12) Thiamine supplement on proteinuria. ... reduced the rate of albumin excretion in type 2 diabetes patients.
