What Could Be Causing Respiratory Problem?

Posted by Nina (Manama, Bahrain) on 01/23/2012

Dear Ted, I am a big fan of you since the knowledge and passion u have in health science field. Please help me today with a problem since I spend lot on tests and online consultation. I am 35 year old and have weight and respiratory problem started last year. I am 5-5 and weight is 191 pounds with calorie intake of 700 kcal for long years. Recently I have shortness of breath problem since the dr checked my Ferritin and TIBC which were low. My morning ph is 5 and usually spo2 is 99% to 100 %. If I try to alkaline my body with pineapple extract cap than more breathing problem. Please advise me for this. Sincerely, Nina

N acetyl cysteine 250 mg x 3 was not considered in the treatment, should clear up the mucous problem. The bromelain extract may help some, but you also need some lysine 1/4 teaspoon every hour for four hours. Alkaline issue may be settled with 1/3 teaspoon of at least sodium bicarbonate twice a day after meals. There is something about constipation issues and may need some potassium citrate 1/4 teaspoon twice a day taken with sodium bicarbonate. Need to eat more vegetables in the diet.
