In Reply to: Re: WARNING, Consult Professionals First Re: right doses of B6/Mag posted by Ideally, we would all find a Dr.who-IF we Could-but-Dr. Bernard Rimland, PhD, founder of ARI ASA gives this dosing advice on the net site-Gramdma Peg on September 19, 2000 at 13:45:46:
It is always smarter and safer to consult with a physician first -- several, in fact. A teaching hospital might be a good place to start.
: REMARKS: Ideally, we Would all consult a proper med. person If we Could Find one who would agree to this biological treatment protocol. Unfortunatly, we can't. I Think that's why Rimland and other Dr's post dosing info on their websites. No, 'one shoe does not fit all' but when it's the best you can do, we're probably going to try to use 'it'. Most ideally, we'd all be able to afford the complete set of lab tests that would map each individual's body, down into the molecular workings level before we ever give them anything...but you know we can't. IMO, Rimland knows what he's talking about and Kirkman's lab knows what They're talking about when they recommend 'trial' dosages of supplements. But this isn't an ideal world, an ideal situation nor an ideal method of treating our kids...'by ear' as it were, but it's the best we've got. All should be cautious about amounts, to be sure, but bottom lining is that we've throw a lot of caution to the wind when we undertake to use these therapies. Add to that that dieticians, Naturopaths, Homeopaths, Chiropractors, etc. may also be qualified to instruct in these alternative therapies and some of those aren't AMA licensed pysicians. Or are you also considering the 'alternative types' as Professionals? They are, you know. Just a thought. Grandma Peg
