Q:
Hi,
I am taking several doctor prescribed meds. One for depression, one for sleep, one for reflex disease, 3 for pain that I have in my leg from a full leg DVT after a car accident 10 years ago. The DVT took almost a year to resolve itself and left behind some permanent damage in my leg.

I am sick and tired of feeling sick and tired. I take almost 20 pills, most of which don't work and make me tired and constipated. I vomit at least twice a week and I feel like crap. I am only 56 years old and don't want to feel like this for the rest of my life. and

My cousin swears by these products. So, I need to know if these 3 products: Colloidal silver, probiotics and zeolite will cause negative side affects / interfere with my meds? I am taking a couple pills that I will need to be weened off. I can send you the names of the pills if you need them.

Thank you,
Penny in Virginia

Hi Penny,
You are too young to feel anything but good. But doing so may require a lot of diligence and hard work. If you’re overweight, you can never be as healthy as you should be without reducing the weight. One must get some exercise outside in the sunshine; modest walking is good.

Just remember, disease is not a deficiency of drugs as mainstream medicine would have us believe! Another thing to remember, clinical studies are not only often fabricated by drug companies, there are almost never studies done on the effects of combinations and multiples of combinations of drugs. It is very likely that some of the drugs you’re taking to counter the side effects of other drugs. This is chemical insanity and almost never ends well for those caught up in that hamster wheel. Therefore the symptoms and side effects from taking these chemical concoctions can be almost anything one can imagine, from physical maladies to psychosis.

Sleep: The issue of insomnia is one of the most critical of issues involving both mental and physical health. You may want to read this from our Home Page, Insomnia and Sleeplessness Protocol

Constipation: Colon Klenz can often diminish the effects of constipation.

Reflux: Mainstream medicine usually treats this with ‘anti-acid’ drugs, but very often it is caused by a lack of stomach acid rather than too much stomach acid. If you don’t have enough acid, your food will not digest properly causing ‘indigestion’. A simple test is, next time you get acid reflux, take 1-2 teaspoons of Organic Apple Cider Vinegar in 4-8 ounces of water. Generally if this improves your indigestion, then that indicates you are low in stomach acid. You may also want to look at this Enzyme Healing Protocol for digestion.

Healing: Silver has been found to enhance tissue healing, taken orally and used topically to damaged tissue. Enzymes can also reduce fibrin buildup and scar tissue which might improve your leg damage. One of the secret weapons (in surgery and medicine, as well as for athletes in the Olympics) of the old Soviet Union and the Eastern block countries was the use of “Systemic Enzymes” to enhance the healing of physical damage.  

DVT: Enzymes can also reduce clots, but that may then alter your anti-clotting medication needs. The best thing you could do is to find a Naturopathic Doctor (ND) who is also an MD, who can see you personally. You should not simply go “cold turkey” off of multiple drugs without close and expert supervision.

Never take Enzymes with drugs, as they will enhance your body’s absorption, causing the dosages to be too high. Enzymes taken with other supplements is usually good as they will reduce the wasting of the supplements- also aiding the body’s absorption.  Colloidal silver, Zeolite, and Probiotics should not interfere with any drugs, but to be on the cautious side, simply take them your supplements at different times from your drugs.
