Zinc Regimen Suggestions?
Hello Ted, My mother has just been diagnosed with Lupus at the age of 57. Her symptoms are primarily muscle/joint ache, foggy memory and fatigue. I have two questions for you: 1) She has been swimming at her gym for exercise, as running and aerobics are no longer an option due to the pain. After reading your Q/A's, I am concerned that the highly chlorinated pool water may not be good for her because it is being absorbed through the skin. She is considering building her own pool, but if this is more harmful, then I think it would be a poor decision - unless, of course, there is a product to keep your water clean w/out chlorine?!? What do you think about this? 2) She is going to start taking your recommendations, however, I don't really have a good idea as to the proper regiment. ie...Is the zinc meant to be taken for a short time or everyday for the rest of her life, should some vitamins be taken with or without others and some on an empty stomach or with food etc... Thank you so much for your time and knowledge. Your help is greatly appreciated! All my best,
