The thrill & the disappointment
on January 6, 2014
Loved this book at first, read it and re-read it! I followed nearly every suggestion, including the one about taking a large dose of Vit. C, in the range of 1000 units, every day. The explanation he gave made sense, so every day, when I got home from work, I took my Vit. C, and did so for several years. Then, one day I read about how Vit. C could cause severe stomach/intestinal upset. The light came on!! I had been experiencing increasingly severe cramping every morning, and I mean painful! I stopped the Vit. C and like magic, the cramping stopped almost immediately. However, I can now take only very, very small amounts of Vit. C, without incurring the cramping again! That is problematic, since the body really does need it. I understand he has changed that recommendation in newer editions of this book. Fact remains, not every suggestion he makes is good for everyone.
