Customer Question
Holistic dr .What dosage and...

Holistic dr .What dosage and type of magnesium or C vitamin does NOT disrupt stomach acids and digestive juices that could possibly interfere with digestion?

WHen is the best time to give Vit C to produce a laxative effect but NOT diarrhea and how much typically is needed for most people and if there is no way to stop a disruptive effect, what is a natural antidote to buffer this higher dose of vit C or magnesium used to produce a predictable bowel movement WITHOUT rushing the digestion of the food that was just consumed as well as rushing the digestion and body absorption of the food in the digestive tracts.

Hi there, I am Dr. Hoellering with 25 years of experience in general medicine, and pleased to help you.

I wouldn't give Vti. C at all as a laxative, because it isn't one and can, since it is an acid, harm the lady's bowels and stomach. Did you ever think about Macrogol?

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
