Prevention for Dangerous Work

Posted by Alex (California)

I am a 28 year old fire captain in California. Due to the constant exposures to diesel fumes, burning combustibles etc. I would like to find out what you suggest I take for good overall health. I take ACV every once in a great while and have had no issues. I have low and and mid-back pain that hasn't been contributed to any ailment. Can you give me a list of vitamins and products to buy as well as the doses to try. Thank you for your time and efforts, they are greatly appreciated.

Dear Alex: Yes, most of the occupation of health problems related to being a fire captain likely to be from back problems because of lifting heavy materials, but also from lung problems from exposure to smoke, dust and hydrocarbons. So the condition is likely to affect the breathing problems leading to emphysema and COPD, but also liver cirrhosis. The diesel fuel can also lead to metabolic acidosis as it is a hydrocarbon, liver problem, and affects the brain, as most hydrocarbons can cause partial damage to the brain. Therefore, detoxification of liver, through the use of 10 drops of 3% H2O2 in one glass of drinking water, will help both the lower back and reduction of chemical toxins in the body by oxidation. MSM (methyl sulfonyl methane), will help reduce some tar deposits which can lead to COPD and emphysema, but also N Acetyl Cysteine to help liquefy mucus, and reduced respiratory problems. Magnesium citrate, or magnesium gluconate 500 mg. is often taken to help with the lower muscle pain and back problem. But to further reduce muscle pain and lower pain, some vitamin B complex is synergistic with the magnesium, and it also is neuroprotective somewhat against the hydrocarbons.

For the body to get rid of hydrocarbons and preventing its accumulation and protects against liver cirrhosis, I might take at least one tablespoon a day of granulated lecithin as it is a fat emulsifier reducing fatty liver. Both vitamin E and vitamin C are antioxidant and protects the liver, but also selenium may be helpful too in protecting against liver cirrhosis. Alkalizing is important in protecting against skin allergies, muscle pain (neutralizes lactic acid buildup), and I might take at least 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water twice a day. A drinking water should have some sea salt, such as 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt (Celtic, Dead sea, Himalayan, a local one, or even deep sea salt available at the aquarium shops) added in per liter of drinking water. This is often added to protect against weakness and electrolytic imbalances cause by sweating and exertion. ACV helps increase energy level, but in the long run, I prefer to neutralize the ACV such as 2 tablespoon of ACV plus 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water taken twice a day. That's at least the minimum dose remedy. Usually taking in the morning often gives some people more energy.

The above are the bare minimum of vitamin, minerals and supplements that are needed. Most of the benefit for this occupation, is likely to get benefit mostly from the magnesium, alkalizing and electrolytes.
