 Alternative Medecine ????

Hello,

My wife has recently taken our daughter to some herbalist or other who
apparently did some strange test which involved holding a metal rod
while having her feet prodded.

Hey presto - the herbalist in question said that she was deficient in a
couple of minerals. Surprise surprise, she was also able to sell her
said minerals there and then. These were:

        Potassium Phosphate & Magnesium

                and

        Sodium Sulphate.

My wife has been concerned that Amanda (our daughter, 4 years old) keeps
getting recurrent illnesses - chest infections (usually treated with
antibiots), wheeziness, etc.

Question : will a six week course of the above tablets make the blindest
bit of difference (good or bad) to her ?

Cheers

David

David,

I wish I knew the answer to your question.  But I want to know where you get
the potassium phosphate, and what kind of magnesium is it?  I want to
supplement my daughter with phosphorus without calcium (not due to hot rods,
but due to {*filter*} test results) and I'm having a heck of a time finding
phosphates!

I'd recommend searching for another cause of the problem.  Wheeziness is
ASTHMA, and can be well treated by excellent medications.  See your doctor.
 Untreated or poorly treated asthma causes unecessary deaths every year.
Perhaps she is anaemic, causing low immunity - check with a doctor.  
perhaps she has a cooking.net">food intolerance or allergy - see a dietitian.

 Oh, yes!  But wasn't she YOUR patient before, and didn't you have
 her on some 57 {*filter*} that kept her comatose?  Now, after the magic
 wand treatment, and only two minerals, she is up and dancing, and
 despite being in her late 90's, she doesn't look a day over 29!

I don't know the answer to that, but I think the poster who directed you to
look into allergies is on the right track. Milk allergy/intolerance, for
instance, can cause excess mucus production which is a breeding ground for
viruses and bacteria. It worked that way for my family. I took my children
off dairy products last spring. Last winter they had non-stop viral
infections, some of which dragged on for weeks. This winter -- one or two a
piece, fairly short and not too severe. It doesn't prove anything, but it's
encouraging.
