Hi All,Yes decided to drop by and let you know I am still doing just fine. I must admit my bowl tolerance has dropped to under 10 grams. Sometimes 8 grams or 6 grams and yesterday only 4 grams and I was running. So my body seems to be happy with my vitamin C content. This morning I'm about to take 3 grams and the slowly take it from there. I was taking 4 grams three times a day but if I was out, I might only take 6 or 8 grams. Pauling is right it is easy to keep up and I don't like not having my Vit. C. When in hospital for a few days I felt my eyes bothered me without it.
Just had my first dose 3 grams of Vit.C, 2 grams of lysine, 1 gram of proline and my d3 vit. and half a multivitamin. Easy to do and no ill effects with my other meds I'm on. Now they are trying to get me to restart my statin. I have said no as I feel everything is going well. They even suggest that one a week could help and it is my cardiologist asking and he knows me very well. So not sure what to do.
I am still dancing twice a week quite vigorous at times and though not quite up to my usual speed but not too bad for my age. No angina when walking and exercising at gym etc. I did wake up one night feeling like it might be angina but not sure if I ate something or what. So I keep trying to get myself in shape and being able for a big event coming up. I have to watch my back and also calf muscle pulls from dancing, keep at bay. So I walk a lot and do stretches and pelvic tilts to keep everything running on a even keel. Pacemaker gives no problems and I don't really feel it coming on. I know it's only doing 15 per cent and I do the rest so that's good. No passing out, heart rate normal and on the whole I feel great.
I must mention I still take 25 mg metoprolol three times a day and feel it is important to do it this way. Two times a day at 50 mg. simply knocked the stuffing out of me. Right now I feel it helps me with no effect on what else I take.
I did have an interesting evening with a Dr. Clifford Jones lecture here who does Med.C here in Canada. It's not often you hear such views being stressed that you can agree with. Still not sure of his formula but admire him standing up for Linus Pauling and his therapy. So life is good and I continue on taking my Vitamin CCCCCC.
