My step father has plaque build up in his legs.When he sits they don't hurt but when he gets up and walks around his legs hurt so he sits most of the time.
Do you know what a person can do about Peripheral Artery disease of the legs ? Janis
Hello Janis, I don't think there is any rapid cure but a couple of things should help keep his circulation going in his legs (your step-dad's).
First off is vitamin E 400 IU's 2 or 3 times a day. Another is vitamin C 4 to l0 grams per day divided out into several times a day (even less is excreted in the urine if taken every hour while awake).
I remember reading (medical journal) about a nursing home starting their elderly patients on 500mg. vitamin C four x a day because (believe it was Linus Pauling who said) it would lower cholesterol. They ended the study much earlier than planned because instead of the cholesterol being lowered, all of their cholelsterol levels soared and scared the dickens out of the ones doing the study. The question that came to my mind when reading this was: Did their cholesterol levels soar because it was being flushed out of their blood vessels?
You might also look up some of those detox & oral chelation recommendations in those section of EC. One recalled was 1 cup of Extra Virgin Olive oil, 2 large bunches of Cilantro, and 8 cloves of garlic pureed in blender. Not sure but think the recommendation was l tsp. 3 x a day. Look for it in the above sections.
He also needs to stop all transfats (Crisco, margarine, etc.) and everything that list hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated vegetable oils
in their ingredients lists.
