Dear H

Thank you for your question. I am sorry to hear about your dad. As much as I would like to help all I can provide you with now is a couple of simple general pointers regarding nutritional adjustments you can make in his diet. Any thing more specific will require a more in-depth history and a proper consult.

To begin with one must remember that the older one gets the slower the metabolism. This translates into a drop in appetite and a diminished ability to tolerate large quantities of food in the digestive tract because the body simply cannot break down and absorb larger volumes any more. To over come this we want to aim for maximising nutrition while minimising volume, and incorporating more raw vegan food choices into his diet is one way to go. Blended foods, pureed foods and other softer meals make it easier for him to digest.

Secondly there are essential nutrients everyone should ensure they get enough of, either from whole food or through healthy supplementation. These include Omega 3 fatty acids, Probiotics and trace minerals.

Anything more detailed requires me to learn me to learn more about your father and what is particular concerns and preferences are. If you would like to you may call us at 0762294662 to make an appointment.

Many thanks and warm regards

Yesheen

Thank you for your question regarding your request for a multivitamin.

A multivitamin is always an important supplement, especially when you are not eating meat, fish or eggs.

However, please check your iron levels as this may be the very reason for your tiredness. It is important to do a full blood count as a marker for your tiredness.You do not mention stress, but adrenal fatigue, body aches etc could also contribute towards your tiredness.Even a Thyroid check may assist.

We have many multivitamins, including Solgar, Viridian & Bio-life which are Vegecaps, & also provide an online shopping service.

You are welcome to contact me once the source of your fatigue is established, & I will gladly prescribe suitable supplements.

Best wishes,

Yours in Health

Dear N

Thank you for your question and your clinical picture.

The first thing you need to do is to work towards having your hormonal cycle regulated. I recommend AGNUS CASTUS, a herb which will help your hormonal cycle to fall back into sync, and should assist in helping to regulate your ovulation process.

You also have a fluid imbalance due to your erratic menstrual flow. This can be effectively treated with Nat Mur tissue salts number 9. Nat Mur can be taken as x3 celloids (tablets) 3 times a day, 10 - 15 minutes in a clean mouth before meals. Both Agnus Castus and Nat Mur will not interfere with each other, and they will work parallel together with other medications if need be. There are no side effects and are cost effective. Do this for at least 3 - 4 weeks.

Once the above has come right, you can commence a multivitamin like CHELA PREG by Arctic as x1 tablet daily after breakfast; and an omega supplement like EQUAZEN by Arctic as x1 capsule after supper. These 2 products will provide your baby with healthy brain, muscle and nerve tissue. There are many questions already answered on supplements for pre pregnancy etc. under conception and fertility which you are welcome to peruse on the question and answer panel.

All the best of luck to you, but do aim to get your health back first.

Warmest regards

Angela

Hi

Yes it is possible to overdose on some vitamins. Vitamins B and C are water soluble and are not toxic. If taken in excess the extra vitamin is passed out of the body in urine (VERY expensive urine!). Vitamins A, D, E and K are fat soluble and these are toxic in excess. In addition many supplements contain minerals which can be toxic in doses exceeding the RDA (recommended daily allowance).

The RDA gives an indication of the correct dosage of vitamins and minerals which will depend on age, size and mass. You can find an up to date RDA guideline on the internet.

As a general rule take a good multivitamin/mineral at the recommended dose as well as an omega supplement. Different people have different requirements and so may need additional supplements. These should be prescribed specifically as part of a plan. Taking too many different supplements can cause potential interactions or toxicity.

Warm regards

Gabriell
