Father with Thinning Skin

Posted by Ted (Bangkok, Thailand) on 01/06/2009 391 posts

My father is in his early 60s and has been having trouble with his thinning skin. In example, he woke up the other morning with purple marks on his jaw where he thinks he might have slept on his hands. He has to wear long sleeves to keep from getting his arms cut or scraped while he works outside. Is there anything he can take internally or externally for thinning of skin? Thanks.

I had a much younger case of a woman who was 26 years of age having the same skin thinning problems. The woman has since been cured. The remedy that was used was vitamin D2 20,000 i.u. taken for about a month, along with 500 mg of magnesium citrate, vitamin C sodium ascorbate 500 mg, vitamin B5 panthothenic acid, and B8. Sodium silicate solution given in drops or just horsetail may help increase the silicon levels to enable thickness. The alkalization gives skin greater hydration, and that's 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda and 1/4 teaspoon of potassium citrate taken twice a day in 1/2 glass of water. Most of the effects of skin improvement will be noticed from vitamin C and vitamin D2. The other further improves on skin appearance and hydration. Please note that vitamin D2 20,000 i.u. is relatively hard to obtain in some countries, but are relatively easy in other countries.
