My karate instructor has some sort of bone disease (I’ll ask him which one when I get the chance.) along with arthritis and generally achy joints. He’s a vietnam-war veteran, has been shot several times, has hepatitis B, and has metal plates in his hands and shoulders. The doctors have told him there’s no cure for his disease, and although not terribly threatening, it cripples his ability to do his job and passion.
I heard him talking about unorthodox treatment methods such as magnetic bracelets, cleansing pads, and nutritional things like antioxidants, so I mentioned fish oil to him. He’s never taken it and hasn’t heard all too much about it. It didn’t take much effort to convince him to try it, as he is looking for anything just to take away a bit of the pain and discomfort. I am ordering a few bottles for him as I’m writing this.
I have a few questions however:
- Am I correct in assuming this will help his condition in any way?
- Would taking more than the usual dose of Flameout be beneficial?
- Are there any medical conditions that would make taking Flameout a bad idea?
