Hello
There is no evidence that this helps
No big studies
But that does not mean it won't help

This is called IV therapy and you have to find a physician who is trained, as the experience of the physician, and his knowledge of basic research is imperative.

call the people at
www.acam.org
For physicians trained.
Or in some cases
www.functionalmedicine.org and see practitioners
good luck

What is the amount for ginger and turmeric to diet? I know it seems I'm asking alot but I live in a area where I can't get any info on this and Im tired of taking all these drugs that they are giving me. I am unable to work because of this FM and I am so desperate. Also How long till I see any results from these vitimans?

 

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 5 years ago.
Please see the offer I sent you.

You just add some fresh ginger to all cooked dishes as possible.
Same with tumeric.
Don't need a lot.
good luck
