In reply to Re: Anyone sea that infomercial for Sea Vegg?, posted by David L. on April 29, 2005, at 10:53:02
I hope someone can help me with this. I just saw the infomercial on Sea Vegg and was quite intrigued so I ordered it. Ironically, while visiting my favorite grocery store (Whole Foods) this weekend, I noticed a strange looking dish in their deli line and when I asked what it was, I was told it was seaweed. I asked to sample it, but I was not thrilled with the taste. My acupuncturist also praises the benefits of seaweed, so when I saw this infomercial, I felt I was destined to buy it.
Now this is where I need some advice. I had a triple bypass in March 2003. I started to feel pretty terrific when I was exercising and losing weight, but soon became very fatigued and with a lot of leg and muscle pains, so I stopped the exercise and the weight soon began to go up.
Since last November, I quit taking all prescribed medications (particularly Crestor & Prevacid) because I was feeling so poorly, and instead went on a rigorous course of vitamins, minerals, and supplements . . . based on a book I read by Ray Strand M.D. "What Your Dr. Doesn't Know About Nutritional Medicine May Be Killing You." I have never felt better in my life and have absolutely no more problems with acid reflux, leg pains, fatigue, and chronic body aches. My cholesterol (which shot up to 498 when I went off the Crestor) is now down to 298 on Red Yeast Rice and acupuncture, but the biggest improvement was in my homocysteine level, which went from 13.5 to 9.
The problem is that I would prefer not to take 26 vitamin/mineral pills a day, and it is quite costly. I'm wondering if this Sea Vegg (or something else perhaps some of you may know about), could give me the same health benefits, and maybe I can discontinue taking some of the other supplements.
I am now taking daily CoQ10 (100mg), B-complex with all cofactors (100mg), Vit E (400iu), alpha lipoic acid (100mg), Vit C (3000 mg), Folic Acid (800 mcg), Milk Thistle (200 mg), Selenium (200 mcg), lycopene/lutein/carotene (500 mcg), grape seed extract (200 mg), calcium/mag (500 mg), vanadium (5000 mcg), manganese (8 mg), L-glutatione (20 mg) chromium (200 mg), red yeast rice (2400 mg) and garlic.
I'm afraid to stop taking any of these because I've been feeling so great, but a life long course of this is going to put me in the poor house. Any suggestions??????? Could Sea Vegg be the answer?
