Elisha, thank u for the very thoughtful response and information. I will share this with him tomorrow.
I had discussed magnesium with him because his bp keeps spiking. He just turned 50 but He' s thinking it's all related. I know his kidneys cause him pain and he said he went off all supplement because the super concentrated nutrients seemed to cause more distress.
He seems to think he handles food based things. Ongoing to share your really helpful information and I may get back with you again.
