Thank you Dr. Lynch, This discussion is very helpful about when to back off, and how to prepare the body to respond the best before adding methylfolate. My son could not tolerate much methylfolate to begin with, so we backed off, added some of your optimal turmeric and optimal start for about 3 weeks, and then proceeded to start with the methylfolate and add slowly from there. He is on about to 3mgs currently. We would love to able to recommend to him a multivitamin, but I am concerned about giving him your multi because it combines niacin and methylfolate. Doesn’t that pose a problem together? Won’t the niacin cancel out the methylfolate in the vitamin as well as the excess methylfolate he already takes? What are your thoughts about this, and can you recommend what to do? Obviously, our son is getting niacin in his diet already, as well, but he really needs a multi. Thanks
I was also diagnosed with MS Rheumetoid arthritis triennial neuralgia carpal tunnel hypothyroidism among alot of other things and found that taking doctors best Curcumin c3 500mg one time daily has helped me with all of my symptoms but seems to have made me develop diarrhea but that is ok if I can walk open doors cook and take care of my family. I am almost totally symptom free but wonder if I need to stop taking it or not. I read you should take it for two weeks but its hard not to take it because I have to use my extremities all the time. I have no other help so I hope it’s ok to take long term.
