September 28, 2014
My mother was hospitalized three months ago in emergency for a coma involved by her hypothyroid and by the E. Coli contamination. The physicians noted that she got a hepatic insufficiency plus a kidney insufficiency and a heart insufficiency and by the end they saw an ischemic stroke. The 3 problems before were resolved in 3 days.
For her brain, as she got only one epilepsy crisis, they gave to her VIMPAT medicine which works well. She got a big chance that she is not paralyzed on her left side as some doctors would have wanted. She can reasoning, and she can speak with no big problems. But she got some memory problems ( short term memory, and a little bit long term memory ) . Of course, she is in a functional reeducation center since 08/21/2014.
QUESTIONS: May I give to my mother your Ceriva product?
What is the interaction with the anti - epileptic named VIMPAT?
Can colostrinin repair the damaged area, partially or in totality, of her brain by the ischemic stroke? She sees people who are unreal.
What would dosage of Ceriva be good or acceptable for my mother who is 77 years old, please?
I wait your answer.
Have a nice day.
Frederic CARNUS from France.
Sorry to hear about your mother. We are dealing with a family member with some of those stroke issues.
Looking at the Vimpat interactions, I didn't see anything that would preclude Ceriva. Ceriva is mostly designed to help the body remove beta amyloid proteins typical of dementia. We don't have any experience using it for post stroke conditions.
That being said, you could try one tablet every three days increasing to one every other day over a three week period. Then after a month try 1 per day. Watch for subtle changes. Best to go slowly as if there is a beta amyloid protein buildup, you will want to clear that over time and not be in a hurry.
I would also try EuroMedica Clinical Glutathione to help the body detox from the E coli and liver and kidney problems.
I am including a reference to the interaction of beta amyloid and brain circulation. http://stroke.ahajournals.org/content/40/7/2601.full
