My dad has been struggling w/ three diseases which are associated w/ aging ---muscle loss, memory or mental decline, and Inflammatory Bowel Disease. And of course chronic fatigue is a byproduct of these conditions.
The IBD has been a real challenge as it also includes Diverticulosis. Treatment w/ natural remedies have been only moderately effective and temporary. An attempt w/ Comfrey Root proved too toxic on only the second dose. The Master Cleanse has also proved helpful, but again, only temporary. Rummaging about and looking for anything, in desperation, stumbled upon a container of Glutamine which had not been used in awhile. At approx. 3-5 grms daily all three conditions have greatly improved in as little as one week time, and continue. The results were so pronounced that I simply had to report for anyone suffering from age related issues.
