Final Word on Alia Science | Dr. Jacob Silverstone
So we have the Alia Science original, we have the headache, we have the sleep, we have the general anti-inflammatory one. In addition, in that one we added turmeric, cumin, and magnesium, which all three specifically for fibromyalgia have been well studied and very efficacious? We added that with the B12 and the CBD.
Then our final formula was for me because part of my anxiety is I do have reflux and I refuse to take Nexium. I do not want to take a PPI because I am a firm believer that part of your general immunity does come from the gut. I do not believe in the leaky gut concept. Serotonin initial production is in the gut. Food consumption plays a major role.
I did not want to take a PPI to disturb anything. In addition, I have a reflux or GI one, which has ginger in it and it has turmeric, again, an anti-inflammatory and l-glutamine, which has shown to be good as a natural way to prevent reflux. Again, added the multivitamin Bs with the exception of B6, which by the way could kick up the reflux.
So people who are taking multiple vitamins, again, this is where literature is important, It shows that it could actually trigger reflux. Therefore, we remove that one out of the entire cascade of ingredients. Again, CBD. CBD has shown for ulcerative colitis, for Crohn’s, so forth and so on. Therefore, those are our five formulas.
Therefore, what we are really saying is, “Hey, before the Motrin, try our pain and inflammation one. Before you go to the purple pill, try a reflux. Instead of going with Imitrex and all the pharmaceuticals for your migraines, we know that this stuff kind of works.
In addition, if you have low energy and chronic fatigue, then even though one cup or two cups of coffee is actually good for you, there is nothing wrong with it. If you’re finding yourself having to take six cups of coffees, maybe you should try our daily formula first.”
“Hey, try this first. And the alternative is the allopathic.” If it is an over the counter pill, try this first, it is most likely to work better. That is my approach to it. This is probably going to work better than Motrin. This is probably going to work better than Excedrin.
This is probably going to work better than Nexium. This is probably going to work better than the next thing. The truth is it does. It really does. It is effective. The reason is that we know all the ingredients that are in it.
We have literature and the medical community has been extremely welcoming mostly because so many patients are coming and saying, “Hey, I don’t want to take this. What are my alternatives?” Now they say, “Well, we have a well-studied alternative.”
Many patients over the last couple of years have shown up and said, “What can you tell me about CBD?” many doctors are going, “I don’t know yet, but I will learn.” On the other hand, that is what they are thinking.
However, it rather is everywhere. In addition, people are recommending it online of course. Moreover, if you are someone who is on a bunch of medication, you want to make sure that things do not conflict or whatever. Moreover, I am interested, as if you mentioned one anti-inflammatory relating to fibromyalgia.
Many of the nerve medications like Lyrica can have some tough side effects or Gabapentin.
Which is a controlled substance in some places and has some tough side effects the problem with those medications is their side effect is sedation. In addition, here we are, we are saying, “We want you to be an active person.” However, you cannot be active because of the pain.
Therefore, we are now getting rid of the pain but not make you active. Moreover, we have not gotten anywhere. So now, you are pain free, but you are inactive. That to me is not a good alternative. Moreover, I can tell you within my practice, and this is 100% anecdotal, it really is anecdotal. This is not published literature in any stretch of the imagination.
I see neuropathic patients regularly, diabetic neuropathic patients, I probably see about 15 a day.Dr. Jacob Silverstone
I see neuropathic patients regularly, diabetic neuropathic patients, I probably see about 15 a day. Moreover, that is not an exaggeration. Moreover, I can tell you, I can count on my hands how many patients I have on gabapentin. It is not that many.
Almost all of them are taking B12 and B complex, which has been neuroprotective and exercise. In addition, the ones that are compliant and the ones that really push themselves to it seem to be functioning well.
Moreover, I am not suggesting cured by any stretch of the imagination, but they are certainly able to tolerate whatever manifestation of the neuropathy that they are sensing, but more importantly, they have become active again. So yes. I always and I have done that since my experience tried B12, I will give them the B12 injections.
In addition, what helps them is realistic expectations. I always have the conversation with the patient, “Hey, this may not get rid of it entirely, but it’s going to be much better and don’t expect it to happen overnight. It is going to take three to four weeks for us to start getting a turnaround in these symptoms.
“Hey, this may not get rid of it entirely, but it’s going to be much better and don’t expect it to happen overnight. It is going to take three to four weeks for us to start getting a turnaround in these symptoms.Dr. Jacob Silverstone
Moreover, do not worry; if we do not get to that point in four weeks, we have not burned any bridges. We can always start you on a very low dose of Neurontin or gabapentin and then incrementally raise you to an effective dose.”
In addition, of the patients that I have, I can tell you almost all of them are taking 100 milligrams once a day at night. I mean, it is really a minimalist dose when you can go up to 900 milligrams three times a day.
