Ketones as an alternative fuel are also under study at USF in the lab under the direction of Dominic D’Agostino, . for the treatment of cancer, ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease), wound healing, oxygen toxicity, epilepsy, and status epilepticus, using ketogenic diets that contain medium chain triglycerides and also ketone esters. The cancer studies are looking at combinations of ketogenic diets with hyperbaric oxygen and glucose lowering substances to further enhance the effect on killing cancer cells, which thrive on glucose but cannot use ketones while preserving normal cells. Results of several of these studies have now been published and others are forthcoming.
Epsom salts: Magnesium and sulphates are the two major components of Epsom Salt. Magnesium helps ease stress, regulate body enzymes and prevents hardening of arteries and formation of blood clots. Sulfates also assists in flushing harmful toxins from the body and in absorption of essential nutrients. Given these properties, Epsom Salt is very beneficial in normalizing blood pressure in case of hypotension. Dissolve about 1- kilogram of Epsom salt in warm bathing water. The patient should then remain immersed in the water for at least twenty minutes. This should be done before going to sleep for normalizing low blood pressure.
