Somebody posted an interesting link from Burt Berkson on another thread. I found it interesting http://www.honestmedicine.com/2009/...k-and-our-medical-system-the-interview-t.html I listened to almost the whole interview and am quite facinated with the Lipoic Acid IV's results Burt claims to have given to very serious patients with serious liver disease or with cancer. The reason I ask about lipoic acid, is because I'm suspicious that liver is giving me alot of trouble, if not most of my trouble. I'm also very curious because Lipoic acid is one vitamin I really think is helping me alot. I have run out of lipoic acid for the first time in 2 years, and without it I seem to be having more difficulties. Especially having troubles with my mouth (gums and lips), which seems to be the only way I can look inside myself. Burt talks about people with liver disease so serious they were expected to die, and they lived after he had given them an alpha lipoic acid IV. Personally, I would rather try a ALA IV before going for anti-retrovirals. Maybe I don't even need an IV and just can take a few more pills.
