Single Status Update
I've been browsing the forms for sometime, and usually after every attack. I'm currently 21 and I am on a cycle that I feel will never end.
I take Verapamil (I swear does nothing) and I tried prednisone (which usually works, but this time its so bad I get dizzy and cry, and from guy to guy, we hate crying)
I feel like there is no end.. anyway, I saw your d3 regime and I really want to give it a shot, but for the life of me, I cant seem to grasp what to do, and reading that pdf makes my head spin!
I would sincerely appreciate the help, and will do anything to have a really simple guide or maybe amazon links to stuff you use or something.
If we could skype that would also be amazing, I've never actually talked to someone who goes through the same thing.. I swear no one understands.
Sorry for lengthy message.
Thank you! P.s hoping someone at-least sees this, batch cannot receive PMs.
I get PMs just fine. Pick up the supplements shown in the photo below with the exception of the Nature's Bounty D3 5,000 IU vitamin D3 soft gels.
Replace the Nature's Bounty D3 5,000 IU soft gels with the Bio-Tech D3-50 water soluble 50,000 IU capsules shown in the Amazon photo below. You can pick up the Nature Made high potency 400 mg Magnesium, Nature Made 1200 mg Omega-3 Fish Oil and Adult 50+ Mature multi at Costco, Sam's, Wallyworld, and most super markets.
Add the Super K with advanced K2 Complex to your amazon order for the Bio-Tech D3-50. While you're waiting for the deliveries from amazon, see your PCP/GP for lab tests of your serum 25(OH)D, calcium and PTH. If you're in a pinch, the lab for 25(OH)D will do.
Start this regimen with the 12-Day Accelerated Vitamin D3 Loading Schedule taking 50,000 IU/day vitamin D3 for 12 days (Take one  of the Bio-Tech D3s-50 capsules daily for 12 days) then drop the vitamin D3 dose to one (1) Bio-Tech D3-50 capsule every five (5) days for an average of 10,000 IU/day vitamin D3. During this accelerated vitamin D3 loading schedule double the magnesium dose to 800 mg/day split 400 mg with breakfast and the other 400 mg with the evening meal. Take the rest of the supplements as shown by capsule count in the first photo daily.
If you've not experienced a favorable change in your CH patterns by the end of the first week on the vitamin D3 loading schedule, start a week to 10 day course of Benadryl (Diphenhydramine HCL) at 25 mg every four hours throughout the day and at bedtime. If that doesn't help, you have questions or problems, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org as there are other steps that have worked for others with this problem.
Be careful and not drive while taking the Benadryl as this much Diphenhydramine will make you drowsy. If you need to drive during the day, wait until you're home for the day then take 50 mg of Benadryl (Diphenhydramine HCL) as you walk through the door and another 50 mg at bedtime.
30 days after the start of this regimen, see your PCP/GP for labs of your serum 25(OH)D, calcium and PTH. Please let me know when you get the results. Your 25(OH)D serum concentration should be up around 80 ng/mL, your serum calcium within its normal reference range, and your PTH in the lower third of its normal reference range.
Once you have the lab data in hand, please take the online survey of CHers taking this regimen to prevent their CH. To start this survey, click on the following link:
Take care and please keep me posted. I'm here to help.
