    Icuira: Re neorapthy

    I checked the website and would like to know if you are following the comprehensive programme. Another question, why dont you have raw veggies and apples, is it because of carbo levels or what.
    The comprehensive programme is a lot of pills a day. Is that what you take or you skip some of teh pills asked for. I am just pasting the programme to know if this is what you follow.


    1 x 400mg to 3 x 400mg per day pentoxifylline (TRENTAL), as prescribed by your physician.
    1. Before the breakfast meal - on empty stomach:
    130mg GLA + 500mg vitamin C (GLA from EPO is best)
    1000mg Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALC)
    500mg N-Acetylcysteine (NAC)
    2. At the breakfast meal:
    60 mg CoEnzyme Q10 (oil-filled capsules is best absorbed)
    GTF chromium (200 microgram) + Niacin (50 mg) - may be in multivitamin
    Inositol (1500mg)
    Taurine (1500mg) for at least 2 weeks then reduce the amount of Taurine taken or, optionally, switch to a Magnesium Taurate tablet (yielding 125mg Mg; 350mg taurine).
    100mg alpha-lipoic acid
    Multivitamin/-mineral tablet
    3. Before the lunch meal:
    130mg GLA + 100mg alpha-lipoic acid
    4. At the lunch meal:
    5mg Biotin
    400 i.u vitamin E
    100mg alpha-lipoic acid
    Multivitamin/mineral tablet
    5. At the dinner meal
    Magnesium-orotate (or -aspartate) - take the equivalent of 100mg of elemental magnesium
    100mg alpha-lipoic acid

    • I follow the Comprehensive Programme with some variations. I don't take TRENTAL and use EPO as the alternative. See the explanation on the web site. You will not that a good multivitamin (Walgreens?) will include some of the items noted such as Vitamin C and Zinc). I really take one multivitamin per day. Otherwise I follow the full programme although am probably not religious about the before meal intake. I buy most of this stuff at where the prices are much lower but it still costs about $75-100 a month. I view that as cheap insurance.

      My biggest concern is managing cholesteral. My cholesteral is a little on the high side so all of this is a bit of a balancing act. i.e. Nuts may be good for some things but may contribute to elevated cholesteral. I'm still in a learning mode. Good luck.
