Oh ok so you were actually on the really high end of EPA+DHA.

Robb Wolf for injuries has said something about .5g EPA+DHA per 10 lbs of mass so if you're 200 lbs that's 10g EPA+DHA.

You probably don't need to go anymore than that... unless you can foot the bill and are seeing good effects still.


Oh yeah, and it's not just docs/pharma that does it. Most of the health professions are like this as well. There's some terrible PT clinics out there (good thing I don't work at one) as well as sham chiros.

Orthotics are waaaaaaaay overprescribed as well.

Vitamin K may also be the antidote for much of the nightshades' toxic effects on the body in regards to arthritis...more on that later.
First of all...thanks Garrett. You are the first person I've ever heard talk about Nightshades (a couple years ago) and it has made a tremendous difference in my quality of life as I'm very sensitive to them.

Second, what's the correct dosage for Vit K?

Vitamin K is a tricky thing on dosing, due to the fact there are multiple types (K1, K2, etc.), some are dosed in MILLIgrams, some are dosed in MICROgrams. That's why I like the full spectrum one I use, Allergy Research is a great company that I trust, and they follow along dosing-wise with most of the research I've seen on the different forms.

I'd kind of forgotten about this thread....

This is a good point Steven. My cousin works in what sounds like a great PT office while she's awaiting word on PT school. The guy who runs the practice is actually building his own orthotics to work people away from them. Basically trying to work a progression for people who actually need them, back to normal walking (as normal as walking with shoes can be). I hear he does some really cool and innovative things in getting people fixed up.

Let me know what comes out with that.

I've been trying to theoretically work my own progressions out for everything (even though I'm only starting PT school this summer), so I'll have something to experiment with in a couple years.

The biggest problem is trying to get the arch to 'reform' in people who have had flat feet for a long time if not decades.

Also, where is your cousin applying to?

From what what she's told me the owner of the facility is about as holistic as it gets.

Not sure where she's applying to. I'm sure several in S. California. I think at Christmas she said some up here in N. California also. Not sure which specific programs though.

On a related note with getting an arch to reform:
My Mom's been in physical therapy (up here in the Bay Area) with foot problems, amongst other things, and her PT finally started taping to help give her an arch in her foot. It was the only thing that started to elicit measurable progress on a weekly basis. The orthotic actually caused her more pain.
