    @MARGARITA COLOMBO, After using mg oil in footbaths for a year, I've switched to mg citrate in footbaths. Excellent w/o the mess of oil (which I made in 1 l quantities, always drippy mess). I had been using Mg Malate tabs initially. I still use the tabs if I wake needing extra in the night, which now is, thankfully, very infrequently. I'm taking all my powdered supps...aminos, some minerals...in footbaths, don't need any more than I would if taking orally. cheers, ahmo

    Freddd, thanks for the heads up re: slow release K. All available K supps at the drugstore are slow release types. I will have to ask my dr. for a prescription to have it compounded. I hope he agrees (he has been trusting my judgement so far). I see that you prefer the gluconate form and hope to be able to get this form from my local compounding pharmacy soon.

    Freddd, I read under antoher topic that you no longer recommend a B complex due to the increased K need.
    I already have sublingual cobamamide 3mg at home (I can split it in 4) and I picked up sublingual L-5-MTHFR 800mcg form the compounding pharmacy last Wed but misplaced it and can't find it anymore. I will have to re-order it. My brain is just full of aluminum and I still have 5 amalgams in my mouth and these factors seem to be hindering my memory improvement. I also have CoQ10 100mg (softgels by Now Foods), but will have to find out if I can order LCF locally.
    I would be very thankful if you could shed some light for my next steps. I am not very smart in biochem, but am trying to read as much as I can. I am not sure when to add the cobamamide. I would have added one quarter of the methylfolate today but had to postpone it. Instead I started 70mcg of Se-mmethionine and had good energy today despite the mildly cramping calves.
    I also tried acerola powder as an alternative vit C source, but keep getting a drop in my energy/brain fog few minutes after taking it.

    Edited to add that I am definetely not trying to loose weight and am skin and bones for being lost about which diet to follow (ended up eating high protein)...

    I am sorry for this conflicting info, Margarita. I hate it that I keep finding conflicting info for everything I decide to do.
    It is a warning for those who have Lyme. You will find it on page 5 of the following presentation:

    'Hi Izzy,
    read under antoher topic that you no longer recommend a B complex due to the increased K need

    That is false. I suggest a low dose b-complex without CyCbl, folic acid, folinic acid or veggie folates and B1 no more than 30mg/day, B2 no more than 21mg/day and b3 no more than 100mg a day. That probably isn't a "best performance" point for you but more some amount more than that can cause insatiable needs for l-methylfolate and/or potassium.
