Another mineral supplement protocol that works - Blasi

Alfred Blasi is a computer programmer in Spain, who experimented with a mixture of minerals until he solved his own rather complicated Fibromyalgia-type pain disease. His mineral mix includes 2-3 daily doses of a mix of sodium, potassium, magnesium, and calcium in a form that will be absorbed in roughly the same proportions that they are found in muscle tissue. The key to his formula was discovering how to mix the minerals so the body would ABSORB the minerals in the right ratio. The mix is called Reuperat-Ion, as it is an ‘ionic’ form of the minerals to allow better absorption.

What I find most interesting is that his mix includes a similar amount of sodium to a 1g dose of Salt. The effects being reported on the Yahoo group discussing the Blasi protocol sound quite similar to what some people using the Salt/C protocol experience. Many folks on the list have CFS and some have Lyme. His protocol does not work for everyone, but it helps a lot of people.

The Yahoo Blasi discussion group is found here.

Alfred Blasi’s website is found here.

This seems to confirm the importance of mineral supplementation for CFS/Lyme. I have read that one study showed that nearly 100% of people with Fibromyalgia also have Lyme as a co-infection. I don't know if there is a direct correlation between the Blasi protocol and Salt/C, but think the issue merits further exploration.
