Questions About Malic Acid for Cfs

Posted by Simon (Perth, W.A. Australia) on 11/14/2009

Hello Ted, I read one of your emails where you recommended Malic Acid for CFS. I have suffered with CFS for 20yrs and was curious how the Malic Acid helps CFS sufferers? Also would be grateful if you could tell me how I take this formula. How much bicarb soda do I take with the Malic acid and do I also add the magnesium to the above remedy??? Is it taken twice daily?? If so for how long? With regards to a person suffering CFS... will we ever be able to take the bicarb soda and ACV?? After say a period of time....or will this not be good for us to take? Love your work Ted you are a very generous soul!! Thanking you in anticipation.

Dear Simon, The person that was cured of CFS here a couple of year ago, was taking plenty of malic acid. It's something like one tablespoon of malic acid, and add perhaps 1/2 tablespoon of baking soda to neutralize the acidity, and a magnesium chloride was taken separately, also large dose, closer to 1000 mg twice a day. Over time, he also needed some b complex, usually a twice weekly dose.empty stomach. It was taken religiously over the course of about 3-4 months, and I believe he continued, just to make sure for a year, but more on an irregular basis. At the time he was also taking some humic acid also, roughly 1/8 teaspoon at different times, which also restored his hair color. He was in his 60s.

It should be noted that the 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda with one level tablespoon of malic acid was dissolved in a glass of water, and we have to wait until the fizzing stopped.
