This was written in the summer of 2009. We’re moving all of our articles from Heal Artfully over here to Blissed Life in order to solidify our mission in one place.
…We’ve had quite an amazing summer full of healing, learning and love! We’ve been on the move and are in transition from Chicago to L.A. so please forgive the late update on Dougie’s experience with Bioage algae supplements.
He has been using them now for just over 2 months and we continue to see improvements. BUT, I must warn that he went through some detox and we did have to tweak the dosage in order for us to feel comfortable with the supplement.
If you are considering using this for yourselves or your children I think it’s a fabulous idea. You can email Dr. Roland Thomas at Roland@Bioage.com for information on the proper dosage and blend for you.
Here is a breakdown of what we have seen. The good, the bad and the honest!
The Doctor’s suggested dosage based on email correspondence of Dougie’s condition:
Three capsules of F2 and three capsules of F3 alternated throughout the day and combined with lots of healthy water.
As I have stated before, these micro algae concentrates are hailed to be the perfect food, offering the body the ability to HEAL. So, unlike other supplements that are intended to “fix something” it gets absorbed and helps create vitamins in the gut as well as absorb nutrition from other foods. They are designed to fix the source of the problem.
Doctor Thomas also suggested that we try Bio Age without any other supplements. I wasn’t so sure about that. But, our supplements are all whole-food based, like hemp, chia, mineral powders, milk thistle etc. I assumed I would need to cut down on them, but didn’t want to take them all away.
It turned out that after 2 pills in one day Dougie was so wiped out that he took a five hour nap. This continued for a week and we were only able to get 2 pills (1 of each) into him. There just wasn’t enough time for more.
After 2 weeks on the supplement I was able to get all 6 pills into his system but couldn’t find much more time for other supps. He remained on a very healthy diet (mostly raw vegan and Body Ecology).
We noticed improvements in fine motor skills right away. He began cutting with scissors and using a pen. He was also talking more (which is usual for him. His speech improves EVERY day).
We only had Dougie on the 6 pill suggested regime for three days when he really started to seem very unsettled. Even with his improved speech and fine motor skills, he began stuttering a lot of his speech and he began crying so much more. He spent lots of time crying and even began hitting himself on the head, throwing himself to the ground and sometimes tripping and falling. Some of his injury was out of unsteadiness and some was out of frustration. So he was falling both accidentally and intentinally.
I couldn’t help but feel that his body was releasing toxins of some sort.
I wrote Dr. Thomas about my concerns and this is what he said:
IT IS A PROCESS… THE REGULATING HYPOTHALAMUS-AXIS IS ENGAGED AND THE CHRONIC PATTERNS ARE BEING ADDRESS OVER TIME… IN TIME EVEN THE HYPOTHALAMUS GETS BETTER ALONG WITH THE GLANDS, THE ORGANS AND ALL THEIR INDIVIDUAL METABOLIC FUNCTION…. BUT NEVER FORGET THAT IT IS A WHOLE SYSTEM WORKING IN HARMONY…
I now feel that this is a great supplement. But, since we are on such great diet, it may be a bit too much for him to handle so much of it. His body is working hard to heal each day.
Dougie now takes 1-2 of each pill (F2 and F3) every day. His body cannot handle much more. He is healing wonderfully. The Bioage makes him quite tired and he is taking great naps. He wakes up refreshed and calm. He used to often wake up crying and unsettled.
