: Hi there... I understand you plight. My father had alot of the same problems. Please start researching vitamin and mineral therapy. Many vitamins can be given in the form of a shot, hence absorbing directly into the blood stream. Speak with an acupuncturist, they too, may be able to give you some alternatives that will help your father. Good luck to you! Melissa
I agree with Melissa that you should start doing some research. I know of a few websites I would recommend but I can't do it here without being accused of advertising or spamming. Please email me at Lkidima@msn.com and i will be glad to share the info with you. You're in my prayers.
