I found a doctor who follows his program and the first thing he told me was that in his experience niacinamide was not effective in treating schizophrenia so he had me start my son on pure niacin. I know this sounds crazy but my son is up to four doses a day taking a total of 13,750 mg. I have a family member who I suspect may be schizophrenic now and I'm very curious what steps to take to get him help. Thanks :-) Be careful about the form of Niacin you take.The doctor regularly monitors his blood to check his liver and kidneys and he is fine. Hoffer states that, "The keys to taking niacin therapy are quantity, frequency, and duration. Abram Hoffer recommended 1000-3000 mg but of a certain variety.Vitamin B3 and omega-3s are especially important nutrients for treating the condition.
50 or 100 ( not sure which one) - vitamine C (ester-c), 3 x 1000mg - magnesium.. Hoffer's B3, Niacin treatment plan with my 20 yr. Hoffers book, "Niacin, The Real Story", says, "As there is a certain, large amount of fuel needed to launch an aircraft or a spacecraft, there is a certain, large amount of a nutrient needed to cure a sick body.
400 ( at night to sleep) - zinc: 30 mg ( in case of pyroluria) - selenium; dose is unkown for me (works well with all B vitamins, not sure) - manganese ( in case of tardive kineasea) - vitamin E (anti oxidants) So, I am not sure if I can leave away the selenium and vitamin E. old son who is autistic and developed schizophrenia in the last year. There was a little bit of flushing as he reached higher levels but really very little. With vitamin therapy speed of recovery is proportional to dosage used." His book is really excellent and available from in Kindle format. Hi Sharon, how is your 20 y/o son doing with the Niacin treatments... Also what were some signs that you knew he was ill?
Natural remedies for schizophrenia vary but include such options as dietary changes and nutritional supplements.
Avoiding trigger foods allows the body to function more optimally while supporting it with supplements realigns any nutritional deficiencies.
Our son it in the throws of a cycle now, delusional and combative. You are so correct about needing to use the niacin that gives a flush. Although the flush is a little hot and itchy, once you build up B3 in your body there is almost no flush at all. Hi, I wonder if Ted or anyone else could help me with this one.
My friend hated the flush but we kept reminding of how much better one feels when the nicacin works. I suffer from schizoaffective disorder with manias and depressions with psychotic episodes sometimes.
A severe brain disorder, schizophrenia is characterized by an individual’s inability to interpret reality normally. addiction...he's returning to normalcy..coconut oil attaches to the opioid receptors in the brain and balances the mood/cravings..grandson requests it so I hand him 4 out the door .his way to work each day.
An individual affected by the condition often exhibits hallucinations, delusions and distorted thinking. Do they have to be peeled and soaked in water overnight? He's been on vodka 20 yrs, ..in coconut oil for alcoholism...a great Doctor cured himself..now fixes others, Blessings, Beth. suzy Please google Dr Abrahm Hoffer and his use of Vitamin B3 Niacin (must use the type that gives the flush).
Schizophrenia per Hoffer is actually pellagra dementia.
I would like to share a remedy I successfully used to cure schizophrenic thoughts.
