I hope this helps. I too am trying to follow Dr Megson's protocol.
My little girl is 3 and 1/2 and alot of this is dosed by age. Forget the flax seed
as you do not need it. I bought Total Essential Fatty Acids ( in liquid form)
It contains a mixed Vitamin E with evening primrose and borage oils. It has been
great. I dose it according to GLA requirements. How old is your child. You can
find this product in the refrigerated section at the health food grocery or I can
give you the phone number to the company. I am giving my little girl 1 teaspoon
which supplies 117mg of GLA to be cut in half once clo is started.
Here's what Dr Megson reccommends: Pretreat for about 2 weeks with
Vitamin E 200-400IU/day plus Vitamin C 250-1000mg twice
a day. I suggest buffered Vit C 500mg spread out
over the day depending on age of child. I use
a powder form.
Use Cod(Salmon) Liver Oil according to Vit A
Less than 2 years of age --850 IU Vitamin A
2-5 years of age---2500 IU vitamin A
5-10 years of age---3750 IU of Vitamin A
older-----5000 IU of Vitamin A
If you want more info let me know. Just e-mail me at email@example.com
Once you start Clo you want to eliminate or minimize A-Palmitate form as it blocks
the Retinol G-Protein Signaling Protein). I am still looking for a Clo my child will take.
She is on her pretreatment and she has been on enteroguard to heal her leaky gut.
Hope this helps,
I spent (literally) hours looking for the dicussion you had with Marta..you referred to it when I was just looking for info on Megson's protocol. I found it, plus a web site McGinnis writes of the pretreatment of Vitamin E and C. However, I am still confused, do I pretreat with vitamin E, C, ground flax seeds (amount?), and evening primrose oil??? Or does the evening primrose have the vit E in it already, so it is just vit, ground flax seeds and evening primrose??? In any event, how much evening primrose and ground flax seeds???? Thanks for your help!!
