    I’ve just been diagnosed with hyperthyroidism after a lifetime of normal thyroid function. Please can you tell me if Marine D3 & Osteoplus (both of which I take), have any iodine content? Thank-you

    I enjoy reading all the questions and answers, however in your “safe our bones program” which I bought I did not find anything about vitamins interacting with medications. On my Vitamin K2 (M7) container it says: do not take if you are on a blood thinner. I am taking Pradaxa and do not know what to do? Should I take the vitamin K2 anyway? A reply would be greatly appreciated.

    On May 3, 2012 I ordered Marine D3 from Nugenics Health–doing this after reading your article regarding its benefits. As of today, June 22, 2012, I have not received the product. I have called requesting the statis of my order every week (usually on Thurs. or Fri.) and have been told it is on back order. I have been given false information–we expect shipment from the manufacturer on Mon. or Tues. and will fill your order ASAP after arrival. Each time I call I get the same responce=will arrive Mon. or Tues. This Friday I was told that the product has arrived and to expect shipment and delivery within a week to 10 days. I then went on to Amazon.com and searched Nugenics. On their home page was feedback from customers that had received their product within a week after order so—while I wait for delivery, they are ordering and receiving orders. I called Nugenics and was told they have two groups of people filling orders- those that fill new orders and those that fill backorders. They don’t want to lose their new customers so they are filling their orders as they come in—while I, basically a new customer–wait. Guess they don’t value my business!!!! I am writing to the CEO of the company and to you, as you are the person recommending this company and product. I am very anxious to try the product and hope to get results. I am, however, disappointed that I have waited 6 weeks. Thought you should know, Vivian!

    • Ellen June 27, 2012, 1:54 pm

      I also ordered Marine D3 on May 3,2012 after reading about it on Save our Bones and had to cancel on May 23 because we were leaving the area for the summer. I received an email on Mon June 25 that the product was finally in stock but when I went on the link that was given it said the product was sold out! I then tried to call the order in and after seven trys in three hours gave up. I have emailed them again but still have no response from them. The product sounds good but I am beginning to have my doubts about the company.

    • Jane June 26, 2012, 6:39 am

      Me too – I haven’t received anything yet..

      • Customer Support July 14, 2012, 2:33 pm

        Hi Betty, Ellen, and Jane,

        I’ve personally contacted them directly on your behalf and demanded that they resolve your issue. I’m so sorry you had this terrible experience with that company. We’re not happy to hear all these complaints to say the least. You should be hearing from them very soon. And if you don’t please let us know.

    Wonderful. Thanks Vivian

    Hi Vivian,
    Thank you for help. Someone asked you of distilled water with lemon juice.
    I doubt also of long term continious drinking of that stuff.
    Distilled water is acidic (without lemon juice) because there is no minerals to alkalize it. It’s probably more acidic then some spring waters.
    Also it can easily draw good minerals from internal environment. It could also absorb impurities from outside environment.
    Why not to use regular spring water (like Poland Spring) with lemon juice?
    Reverse osmosis filtered water with lemon juice is another alternative.
    Distilled water is good to draw toxins from the body in am only.
    How about ionized water?
    Could you please recommend?
    I hope you would respond this time to me
    Best wishes
    Leonard

    I have just read through your book and I have always believed an alkaline way was the best way. I have taken Evista a number of years and was interested in what you had to say. I copied your list of alkalines and will use it to choose better than I have in the past.

    Thank you,
    Dot Gaze

    My Doctor and I are in a controversy about drinking distilled water to get rid of the Fluoride. He says that it will change the electrolites in my body, and that I should not drink it continuously. What is your comment on that subject?

    • Leonard Green June 22, 2012, 10:16 pm

      That’s probably a reason of bottled Smart Water creation. It’s distilled water with added electrolites
      (ca chloride, mg …, potassium…). Though it’s more expensive. I consider bying Smart Water and add lemon juice or buying distilled water and add baking soda and lemon juice. People think that baking soda can add electrolites. I see a lot of warning on Internet of distilled water usage without electrolites.
      It’s good to get rid of fluoride with distilled water but they talk of lack of electrolites as a threat for bones. That issue should be addressed.
      Best Leonard

      • Leonard Green June 22, 2012, 11:15 pm

        On another note there is information of lemon juice content. It has Ca, Mg, Potassium in it. However I am not sure that they are in the form of electrolites.
        Though nobody talked of adding lemon juice to Smart Water. Director of the famous Florida Health resort Dr. Clement told that he has used distilled water for 30 years and got exellent results.
        Note: lemon water should be warm (not hot or cold) and better use draw to drink it to avoid acidity in the mouth- lemon water gets alkiline only after its metabolizing;
        also lemon water has multiple health benefits; especially important to drink it in am to clean the body of impurities

    Vivian, whant can I use to whiten by teeth with out affecting my bones.

    • Moon June 18, 2012, 6:59 pm

      Baking Soda powder, the kind one can buy WITHOUT aluminum at the health food store, mixed with a few drops of 3% hydrogen peroxide and, if one wishes, a few drops of peppermint for taste can be used to make a whitening toothpaste. After brushing, one can swish some more hydrogen peroxide (3%) around one’s mouth to heighten the whitening effect and give a double whammy to mouth bacteria.

    thanks for the free booklet which I will hope to receive soon.

    And I THANK YOU VERY MUCH, AS ALWAYS, FOR ALL YOU DO!

    LOVE, Ms. L. (LESLIE)

  21. justin June 18, 2012, 12:16 pm

    is it power or is it the mighty dollar that controlls all those supp. suppliers?
    only MY brand of CoQ 10 is worth your $
    take only this Ca for your bones
    NEVER touch Ca supps or it destroys your heart or/and BV
    coffee is great…coffee is your enemy
    drink 8 glasses of water…water is so destructive blah blah blah

    all of us [little idiots] are thoroughly confused lost and getting hoplessly sick!

    • Vivian Goldschmidt, MA June 18, 2012, 12:44 pm
