Do Our Labels Tell the Whole Story?

By Dr. Jerry Mixon April 29, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

We human beings seem to like to label things – the simpler, the better! This urge to put everything into simple categories definitely applies to drugs and supplements – we like to think that Drug A always has one particular effect, and Supplement B has a different one. Just take this pill or use this crème and, voila, you always get one simple outcome.

That may be tidy, but it’s seldom accurate. In the real world, the drugs and supplements we take usually refuse to cooperate with this fantasy. Instead, one compound can have many effects – and many compounds can have similar effects. Often none of these interactions seem to correlate very well to the labels we put on them.

Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA), in conjunction with with selenium and milk thistle has been used by Burt Berkson, M.D., Ph.D. of New Mexico for many years to treat cirrhosis and other liver problems. In many cases he administers it intravenously (the ALA). He also uses it in the treatment of type 2 diabetes. His intravenous protocol with A.L.A. has saved many lives including my own.
Research at U.C. Berkeley has also shown it to be a preeminent anti-oxidant and anti-aging compound.
