Remedies Needed for Hard Abdomen, Possible Tumor or Fibroid

Posted by C. on 09/24/2010

Hi Ted, I tried contacting you through earthclinic, but never gotten a reply. I tried contacting you sometime in July. Anyway, I was emailing you because I found out a couple of months I noticed that my abdomen was getting larger and it was solid. At first I thought maybe I could be pregnant, but I still was getting my menstrual cycle every month. So I went to a gastroenterologists to see if there was something wrong with my digestive system first. He did an ultra sound and than told me to go see my obgyn and ordered me to do a blood test. I did the blood test and went to see my obgyn. She didn't know what it was and she ran tests to see if I didn't have any STDS and ordered me to get more blood drawn and than told me to get a CAT Scan. I got the CAT Scan and the man who performed me asked did I want to see what the growth/mass looks like and of course I agreed. He said it looked like a big fibroid. This thing measured 15 cm by 14 cm. It was just sitting in my abdomen area without being attached to any organs. It doesn't give me any pain and my periods are still regular. So my obgyn recommended me to another obgyn that is an Endocrinologist OBGYN. She did a rectal and vaginal exam and felt on my abdomen. She didn't know quite what it was and wants to do surgery on me. She said whatever this growth is malignant, she was going to take do a hysterectomy and possibly take out my appendix. I did not agree to the surgery and plus I am only 26 years old with no children and possibly may want some one day. So I didn't go through with it and looked for a naturopathic doctor. She's been helping me a lot by giving mistletoe and a tincture. I gave her my blood results (my blood was a really dark red like almost like a black cherry color) and she saw that my cortisol was high and that my liver might have some inflammation. She gave me supplements for that and told me to order this endorine test to what my estrogen levels looked like. She was surprised that my estrogen levels were normal, but my adrenaline levels were off, probably because I work 12 hours night shift. I did my own research on some full body detox kits so I could clean my body out. So I am taking things to help repair my adrenaline glands and liver. She thinks it is a fibroid also. I am on my ninth day cleans and I am doing well on it, besides my underarms and sometimes my urine smelling like soy sauce and excess urination (the herbalist says signs of too much protein). I am on a raw food diet as recommended by the herbalist for three weeks. What I didn't notice yet is a shrinkage in my tumor/growth yet. Also, I want to say that I remember the hardening of the bottom of my abdomen started like last year when I went to see a holistic doctor about another issue. He gave me and my friend some samples of his supplements that was suppose to make us go to the bathroom regularly, but ended up making us constipated. I immediately stopped taking them and noticed that the bottom of my abdomen was hard afterwards. My abdomen has been hard like that for over a year. My friend experienced the same thing and stopped taking hers. The thing is my stayed hard until this year around April or May when it started extend outward. My friend's abdomen did not extend outward. So I am wondering could be from the supplements. I am clueless. I am in desperate to know what you think. I still have my blood results and I think I still have the results from my endocrine test. If you want to know my results just say so. Please help I am desperate to get rid of this thing. Thanks.

Dear C.

Tumors tend to grow faster from use of supplement in general, mostly the additive, such as calcium phosphate, calcium, dipotassium phosphate, dicaclium phosphate and the like. Supplements that contain oils, such as vitamin A or E, tends to clog up liver from the liver's inability to uptake oil. The idea of calcium causing cancer growth and the use of phosphate is well known in alternative cancer treatment for quite some time. This why I ended up making my own supplements or getting them without any additives. In any instances, cancers tend to uptake sodium and they tend to calcify, and hence this is how cancer protects against immune system from eating up the cancer cells.

In cancer treatment, and I don't follow any popular alternative cancer treatment of today, because it kills people too quickly. There are a couple of ground rules that is most important, avoid fructose, they are the worse of the sugar. It feeds on cancer and they proliferate many fold within hours of taking them. After fructose, it is sucrose, or common table sugar. If cancer really gets bad, then it has to be a ketogenic diet, or a low carbohydrate diet. I have seen a couple of people just died this year believing juicing of fruits will cure them. Apparently they overlooked the fact that it made them diabetic, and the cancer feeds directly on fructose as their primary food. There are a couple of exceptions on what fruits to eat, the apple is one exception, as their fructose are low, sugar in apple sometimes bind to an anticancer agent, such as quercetin. That's just about the only fruit that's safe to eat, including the apple seeds, which contains tiny amounts of laertrile, but not necessarily the apple peels, as they contain flouride. Apples can be eaten as whole, chopped or mashed, but never in apple juices, which tends to cause blood sugar spikes and drink plenty of water.

Obviously the hardening of the cancer is from two things, cancer and sodium. Cancer cells tend to have very high sodium, while normal cells do not. The sodium antagonists is the intracellular fluid mineral called potassium, preferably in the form of potassium citrate. Citrate forms chelate calcium, which removes the calcium protective shell that protects calcium, while reducing the edema as potassium displaces sodium. Obviously, table salt has to be avoided as these lead to edema. There are other potassium I am currently looking at but have trouble obtaining them (budget!) but they are potasium acetate, which may block glycolysis, potassium gluconate, which promotes uptake of sugar to calcium, but using the potassium to kill the cancer by displacing the sodium easier. However, for this condition in particular it's likely to be the potassium citrate.

The dose for potassium citrate in a cup of warm water is 1/2 teaspoon three times a day after meals. The issue of alkalization only occurs if the potassium citrate is taken only after meals.

As for the iodine tincture mentioned, the iodine tincture I used is the Lugol's solution, but I am also exploring hydrogen iodide, made from hydrazine, which that in itself is a long story. The only issue that has spooked me for years is the ability for the body to uptake the iodine since iodine excretion is high in itself. The Lugol's solution I may use 2 drops three for four times a day, preferably three, initially. It is taken in a 1/2 cup of warm water, empty stomach. To help iodine uptake, I believe is linked to the body's available vitamin D. The one down side of the vitamin D is it's problem of increasing blood calcium. The only way around this is simply to go out in the sun for 20 minutes, much like sunbathing, twice a day. This should allow the body to produce roughly 10,000 to 20,000 ilu. a day, without the supplements and with no worry of calcium fueling the cancer growth. If there is no sun in the area, perhaps a UV tanning briefly, equivalent to sun exposure of 20 minutes, twice a day. Some aloe vera oil applied thinly may help prevent burns associated with UV exposure. The reason why iodine and vitamin D is so closely linked to cancer is that cancer retention is highest in the month of July, followed by August, while iodine excretion is also minimum at the same time. Hence, the body can utilize the iodine if the body produces sufficient amount of vitamin D. Assuming that it's not possible to get the sun, or get UV tanning, then perhaps I might consider vitamin D3, but not over 5000 i.u. as the limit and take plenty of potassium citrate, and citric acid to chelate out plenty of calcium. If citric acid can't be obtain, I might consider the use of lemon juice with plenty of water.

As far as digesting and shrinking of tumor is concerned, they grow simply because the body can't see the tumor. This can be reversed by allowing them to see, using either of the two things, separately or together. Tannic acid or EGCG (which is actually green tea extract). A green tea extract contains around 50 to 55% EGCG - epigallocatechin gallate). The problems about the use of tannic acid and green tea extract is the constipation, at which I will add sorbitol, which is a laxative, tastes sweet, but also kills cancer cells on contact, in large dose of course, but in this remedy I don't use this to kill cancer cells. I used it sufficient amount NOT TO CAUSE CONSTIPATION. People with cancer tends to swing two ways. The most common is constipation. The second one which is rarer is diarrhea. Diarrhea from me is relatively easier to treat, which I will use maybe 1/4 teaspoon of humic acid powder, 1/2 teaspoon of fulvic acid powder, or just 1/4 teaspoon of tannic acid, or 1/2 teaspoon of green tea extract powder. In my own experience, tannic acid is the more powerful cancer supplement almost twice more ten that of EGCG, and the dose is confined between 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of tannic acid per dose with 1/2 teaspoon of sorbitol usually twice to three times a day in cup of warm water. The dose for EGCG is roughly 1/2 teaspoon on the average to 3/4 teaspoon, with sorbitol again. Should they caused constipation, the potassium citrate might be taken about 1/2 teaspoon four times a day, taken separately at least 30 minutes or more apart. What the tannic acid does is it goes into the bloodstream and make the slippery covering of the cancer, which makes them invisible visible, but deactivating them, basically converting them into leather, or just denaturing the proteins. I read somewhere that if the tannic acid drinks are somewhat acid, the uptake of tannic acid or green tea absorption into the bloodstream is enhanced, but haven't tested out that theory. To make them acidic, is to add a small squeeze of lemon juice, or some malic acid, or some apple cider vinegar.

In cancer remedy it is most important that digestive enzymes is used. Taken on empty stomach, it goes in the bloodstream so that the digestive enzyme can digest the tumor. The body can actually produce sufficient enzymes to at least digest them by following one simple rule: don't eat dinner. This makes a person hungry as digestive juices is increased, then it goes into the bloodstream and begin doing its work.

Dietary control is most important. Basically my rule is to avoid most fruits anyway, except for vegetables and carrots. I like carrots because of beta carotine, which is vitamin A and don't cause liver damage. The other is to avoid completely all vegetable oils including olive oils. The one exception I have never had any complaints in cancer people is the use of coconut oil, which is a monounsaturated fatty acid, and it is this form that doesn't do liver damage, while krill oil, salmon fish oil, omega 3, polyunsaturated fats tend to do damage to the liver. While omega 3 and other oils such as this maybe good, it is not good for cancer as the liver is already toxic and it can't handle any more additional oils to cause fatty liver.

The supplements I tend to use is pure ascorbic acid with baking soda, or sodium ascorbate. The reason why baking soda I am not too worry about is it is very alkaline, and when taken together with potassium citrate do not add to more sodium to the cancer cells. What adds more sodium to the cancer cells is the chloride, chlorine, fluoride, which tends to cause sodium retention to increase.

Finally also used lysine as the main element to raise white blood cells by twice that amount, and also eating some pumpkin seeds. Salted pumpkin seeds and fried ones are a problem, just ordinary unsalted pumpkin seeds without and use of vegetable oils tend to raise them. Iodine can also be uptake more easily with kelp or seaweed, but with processing today, I am not sure if they have any iodine left. In Thailand, the popular delicacy is fried seaweed, and tends not to have any iodine, and hence unhealthy.

The lysine supplements I used is taken 1000 mg four to seven times a day for the first couple of days, whereby maybe reduce to four times a day if conditions improve. This will raise white blood cells. I have as yet need to find out what amino acid raises red blood cells, but don't have sufficient time to do that.

Hope this answer just a few of your questions.

Thanks Ted for your response. I just read over my email and understood why you may thank I said it was cancerous. Really we don't know if it is cancerous or not, she just want to cut it out. I do have Lugol's Iodine in my cabinet that ordered sometime in July. Since my Naturopathic doctor saw that my estrogen levels were normal she did not recommend that I take it. I am on a raw food diet since my detox kit recommends that I stay away from cooked foods while on detox. All of my pesky symptoms are clearing up (bad breath (mouth and throat), and fatigue). I just don't see a lot of change with my possible tumor/fibroid. One thing I did not mention is that this thing seems to pulsate when I lay down. The growth has not grown much since I changed my diet (before detox). I stopped eating red meat and pork. I started eating everything organic when I found out about this growth (in July). Like I mention before it doesn't hurt or anything, I just hate looking at it. I think I mention in my email that my urine smells to me like soy sauce. What do you think that means? Also, rather this thing is cancerous or not, do you think the stuff that you mention I should get would still work either way? Thanks again and sorry for the confusion.

Most growth generally are cancerous. Raw food diet is fine. Most cancer causing food comes from cooked meats, mostly cooked meats, which contains a cancer causing compound. Cancer or not, the remedy is still the same, mainly lysine, iodine, vitamin A in carrot juice, digestive enzyme, and more bromelain may be necessary. The bromelain is well known to digest fibroid tissues, as in cancer. The bromelain I make is relatively a strong one, which is 20% bromelain, from 6500 GDU/ gram dose. Most commercial ones if you buy them may need to take perhaps 5 to 10 capsules twice or three times a day. I always start with low dose to see how well it can be tolerated, and slowly increase the dose where you don't have the side effects. The bromelain will start digesting the fibroid. It should begin to shrink at least by a week, or dose maybe insufficient. When urine is soy sauce, I may drink plenty of water, take plenty of potassium, perhaps even chelate them out with citric acid if it has calcified. When tumor begins to dissolved somewhat, sometimes the urine becomes like soy sauce. However, there's another problem. Brown urine color, sometimes black is also a sign of liver virus such as hepatitis B, hep C, and other things. If liver is degenerating from tumors if they spread (if they are cancer), then you get soy sauce urine also. To prevent this occurence, choosing supplements that protects liver, as in B complex, but without the additives, avoiding polyunsaturated fatty acid (namely vegetable oils), and use coconut oil (which is made of medium chain triglyceride), and minimum fruits. I have seen a couple of cases where the belly is hard and large, in two cases plus the soy sauce urine you mentioned. In these cases, at least in Bangkok, it turns out not to be cancer of the stomach, but edema due to liver cancer or hepatitis B or hepatitis C. For remedy that does help, it's still lysine as the main amino acid, but taken for that condition closer to 7 times a day, with other aminos such as threonine, glutamine (if there is muscle wasting), and sometimes citrulline. I would assume you had your blood test and liver came up normal, with normal ALT and AST. If ALT and AST is above normal, then one of the tricks is to take glycine at 3000 mg and Thiamine to keep those numbers normal. N acetyl Cysteine is the other one. Liver tends to be difficult to see, as it will cause back pain and the tumors block the lymphatic drainage causing the swelling or edema of the stomach. Detection of liver tumor is difficult with ultrasound, but an MRI scan is more accurate, or perhaps, withe lower budget a blood test for cancer (e.g. CEA or AFP) and inflammation of liver (ALT and AST) maybe also an indicator as to the cause. Of course I am assuming you did all those test, but this is just precautionary.

Thanks again Ted. So let me get this straight. The main things I need to get is Lysine, iodine, vitamin A, and bromelain. Is that right? How far apart do I take these supplements? Can they be taking right after each other? Do I take Lysine with or without food? Same question for the bromelain. Can they be taken with other supplements such a multivitamin? I take flaxseed oil as a supplement is that ok? I am already taking a B complex supplement that my doctor recommend for my liver. Is there another way for my to get Vitamin A besides carrot juice? I eat raw carrots. I had the CAT Scan done and the growth/tumor is just sitting in the abdominal cavity. I really noticed the soy sauce urine smell when I started to detox. Today is my 12 day on it and I feel better than I ever did before. Where can I find most of these products that I need to take? I already have Lugol's Iodine 2. 2% in my cabinet. Is that fine? Before my doctor found out my results for estrogen levels, she recommended me to take twice a week because it is so strong. I saw that you recommend two drops three to four times a day. Do you still recommend that amount? I know she said my Cortisol was a bit high and she suspect inflammation of the live and my adrenal glands looks a bit off. I still have my blood results if you want to review them. I do have the hard, round, belly but it pulsate. What does that mean? My urine is clear when I drink a lot of water, but slightly a darker yellow sometimes. Again Thanks.

First off people usually immediately begin to feel better with hormone injections whenever they have cancer. Unfortunately most people who do injections die. The reason why this happens is hormones tend to push the liver to deplete itself. Even more then 80 years ago, Dr. Gerson who was successful in curing cancer first noticed that all of his patients died (about over two dozen) within four months after taking hormone.injections. They all immediately feel better, but it kills the liver. In simple terms, steroids or hormones increases blood glucose, but cancer feeds on them, and hence, cancer grows quickly once the blood glucose rises. It also causes liver damage. Therefore, the likelihood of survival is very small.

Vitamin A, in preferred form is always carrot juice. There's no chance of overdose. Real vitamin A is oil, and tends to cause liver issues. In fact vegetable oils and any oily foods and fats has to be avoided. Fats congests the liver and thus kills the patient that way. The one hormone that I do know is helpful is always the natural thyroid suppelements, one or two grains daily with lugol's solution, sucha s 1 drops three or four times a day, if possible. Not too much as it may be somewhat nauseous. If urea can be found, as in 1/8 teaspoon twice a day, it will prevent edema, and some potassium bicarbonate, not too much as it tends to cause nausea, such as 1/8 teaspoon in a cup of water, perhaps with apple juice or carrot juice with citric acid or malic acid added, if possible. The potassium will displace the sodium causing the edema, and urea is also diuretic. THe immune system support taking lysine as mentioned is least problematic of all and after 3 days people get a lot better without the associated problems as the other remedies.

To answer your question, briefly:

The main things I need to get is Lysine, iodine, vitamin A, and bromelain. Is that right?


How far apart do I take these supplements?

Vitamin A use carrot juice instead freshly prepared ONLY. 5 to 10 glasses a day. Contains high vitamin A beta carotene and oil free. Real vitamin A contains oil, cannot be used.

Each supplements can be taken at the same time is fine, But, the supplements need to be taken 4 times a day

Can they be taking right after each other?

Yes also.

Do I take Lysine with or without food?

Without food works better.

Same question for the bromelain.

Without food.

Can they be taken with other supplements such a multivitamin?

Multivitamins is forbidden. They contain calcium and fillers. Congests the intestines. Only vitamin B50, without the calcium.

I take flaxseed oil as a supplement is that ok?

Flaxseed is problematic, unless they are refrigerated kind, cold press. Otherwise useless.

I am already taking a B complex supplement that my doctor recommend for my liver.

Fine, but no calcium. It tends to block and congest the liver.

Is there another way for my to get Vitamin A besides carrot juice?

Carrot juice only, freshly prepared. Is absolutely essential.

I eat raw carrots.

Not enough vitamin A. you need a lot more 5 glasses.

I already have Lugol's Iodine 2.2% in my cabinet. Is that fine?


Before my doctor found out my results for estrogen levels, she recommended me to take twice a week because it is so strong.

Buy DIM (di indoly methane) will block estrogen. Purebulk.com is most convenient or other places is up to you. Keep your blood sugar below 90 mg/dL.

I saw that you recommend two drops three to four times a day.


Do you still recommend that amount?

Depends, if no nausea.

I know she said my Cortisol was a bit high and she suspect inflammation of the liver and my adrenal glands looks a bit off.

Glycine 3000 mg for inflammation and B1 500 mg.

Thanks Ted,

I am about to get off of my detox this up coming Monday and I want to know is it alright for me to cook food (organic) such as pasta (not made with white flour)? Also, can I add an apple with my carrot juice while juicing it? How can I buy the bromelain that you make, do you have a website I can buy it from, or it doesn't matter what name brand bromelain supplements that I buy? I know on one website they said that no one shouldn't take bromelain for more than two weeks. One more thing what web sites do you recommend I buy most of these supplements from, and how long do you think I should stay taking these supplements? Is it ok for me to buy them at Whole Foods Market? Thanks again.

Can I add an apple with my carrot juice while juicing it?

The only apple that might be good is green apples only.

How can I buy the bromelain that you make, do you have a website I can buy it from, or it doesn't matter what name brand bromelain supplements that I buy?

Bromelain is used to digest fibroid tumor, but I think cancer initial stages are the most of difficult, but bromelain isn't in the top of the priority list as do green tea extract or tannic acid or sorbitol. I don't normally buy supplements because they keep adding cancer causing substances hence I end up making my own without any additives. However, bromelain is not on priority list. I would concentrate on broccoli, green tea extract, lysine, tannic acid, carrot juice, and some green apples. However, I believe digestive enzyme is more important ones, especially pancreatic enzyme with the chymotrypsin, especially. Unfortunately, the failures of cancer treatment has a lot to do with pharmaceuticals, in U. S. Makes fractionated Pancreatic enzymes without the chymotrypsin, rendering them ineffective. This was first mentioned by Donald Kelly, who once had a successful Mexican clinic, until the Pharma removed to chymotrypsin, which is a key compound against cancer to make them ineffective so they can sell more chemo, to reduced the effectiveness of the pancreatic enzymes extending the treatment period, murdering Steve McQueen to make it appear alternative cancer doesn't work, arsenic poisoning on Max Gerson in 1959, and other things, to protect the chemotherapy financial interests. This is why most supplements don't work, in fact, adding calcium to nearly all the supplements actually promoted cancer. They also hire bloggers to put up a lot of disinformation, including wikipedia now and then. For example, Steve McQueen the actor actually had a tumor, close to ten pounds, not five pounds and the omission of blood clots medication given to him before he died after using conventional treatment. The wikipedia source is incorrect and has omissions. Therefore when buying them, check to see if they have the chymotrypsin and the dose is more then the other brands. Bromelain can be added there also. The other digestive enzymes is pepsin with the betaine HCl, which is taken during meals is very important. I know on one website they said that no one shouldn't take bromelain for more than two weeks. Different people respond differently to different doses of bromelain. It's not about the length of time as is the dose. Bromelain is not a priority, but green tea extract is. Again, is not a priority. Try betaine HCl with pepsin to help digestion during meals, and digestive enzymes with chymotrypsin, in the pancreatic enzymes. One more thing what web sites do you recommend I buy most of these supplements from, and how long do you think I should stay taking these supplements?

Depends on what kind of supplements. For example, if there is too much estrogen this tends to kill patients faster. Most hormone supplements does this, including growth hormones. It works by killing the liver. The cells in the body will make too much nutritional demands that the liver is roobed. One indirect numbers I looked is the tendency to increase liver enzymes, ALT and AST, fatty liver and blood sugar goes up. Higher blood sugar promotes or feeds cancer cells.

Is it ok for me to buy them at Whole Foods Market?

Organically grown is the best as it is free from pesticides. The body can neutralize some chemicals in the body if the person takes hydrogen peroxide. The dose is 1 capful of 3% per liter of drinking water, and can be drank as many liters as you feel comfortable, but is taken only on alternate days, to allow the body a resting period giving time for the body to detox on rest days. Hydrogen peroxide tend to neutralize most of the chemicals that accumulate in the body.

When a person has cancer it is MOST IMPORTANT that blood sugar is NORMAL, such as 100 to 105, for me. But ideally I prefer blood sugar to below or equal to 90 mg/dL, as there there is 97% survival rate compared to other cancer patients. This number is based on Korean patients who died of cancer. The numbers were 97% died of blood sugar more then 90 mg/dL, while only 3% dies of blood sugar below to or equal to 90 mg/dL. Most of the death was attributed to blood sugar exceeding 125 mg/dL. In fact from my own personal experience, I have one cancer person who already had metasized is still surviving after 4 years. Her blood sugar is about 100 to 105. So I imagine if the blood sugar is below to or equal to 90 mg/dL, there is a better chance for a cancer remission, if you AVOIDED the other things, namely, chlorine, MMS, fluoride, and pesticides. Taking potassium supplements and carrot juices allows the potassium to kill cancer cells as cancer cells has edema, and there is evidence that potassium does kill cancer. The potassium I currently use is potassium citrate, technical name is tripotassium citrate. The other is potassium gluconate, which is a glucose metabolite, or oxidized glucose of potassium. This is a simple glucose "antagonists" and hence kills cancer this way. I am currently looking into potassium acetate as this acetate forms tend to block glycolysis, found in tumor cells. So this is the easiest way to look at. If anyone wants to do a cancer research in their home, a remarkably simple experiments is to find supplements that suppresses yeast fermentation in presence of sugar. In those experiment they actually found 2 deoxy d glucose to suppress yeast fermentation and their metabolism is very similar to that of a cancer tumor. So you can also experiment with tiny amounts of hydrazine sulfate. It suppresses fermentation that way too, or why hyperthermia works, and other things. So cancer research need not require multimillion dollar donations, and research are misdirected towards the more profitable chemotherapy.

The concept of blood sugar is actually ignored in most cancer therapy or are mentioned briefly, but it is the primarily approach towards a person's survival. I have a person nearly died of cancer after eating 3 bananas, another 2 glasses of coconut juice, and yet another drinking hospital formulated milk. Those hospital formulated milk, even the ones in Amway actually contains a lot of sugar, usually well above 3% to 5% cut off I used. However, the worse of the sugars are fructose, then it is closely followed by sucrose. It has nothing to do with glycemic index, as fructose has lower glycemic index, but it kills you a lot faster then glucose. Still all sugar is the primarily food that fuels cancer growth within 2 hours, it has already metasized, after eating in once case I found, one kilogram of fresh rambutan, and yet in another case, drinking Coke. The sugar promotes that raises blood sugar are fats and oils. Protein in meat tends to deplete the person of digestive enzymes diverted instead of killing cancer cells. If fruits are kept where fructose are minimum, I found green apples, guava, or those with lower sugar equal to or less then this to be safe, but provided that potassium citrate, potassium acetate, potassium bicarbonate, and potassium gluconate is taken along with it. The potassium will allow the mitochondrial from damage due to high intracellular sodium, but I believe to help potassium go inside the cells, taurine supplements should also be added, such as 1/8 teaspoon of potassium citrate with 1/8 teaspoon of taurine two to four times a day. It is taken gradually in small amounts. Some has lower tolerance some have higher tolerance.
