We’ve been chatting alot about ATP today! I go to the guy that knows the best about all things fibro-related! Here’s what Dr. St. Amand says: Quote by Lyn Heath Van Bebber over at Fibro(my)algia Facebook page:
“Dr. SA says it’s a waste of money to take ATP supplements because our mitochondria is destroyed by the built up phosphates. It is my understanding that the only thing that is going to help our ATP is getting the phosphates out so our body can begin to replenish our mitochondria. Exercise rebuilds mitochondria.”
Here’s more on this from Lyn:
Mitochondria – Our body power stations
Genesee Walbridge Atkins just (Oct 9 2014) got off the phone with the office of Dr St Amand and was told this from Gloria (Claudia is out today)
“Dr. St. Amand’s take on it is that it can work for some but not for all, and he believes for some that they THINK it is working because they are taking it but it’s not actually doing anything. He said some of his patients take this but he doesn’t recommend it or prescribe it. He compares it to taking vitamins, that you get what you need from food. So he says go right ahead and take it because it’s your choice but that’s where he stands on it.”
So there you have it! it might work for you, but might not! The main thing to remember with fibromyalgia is that the Guaifenesin Protocol takes time to get you well again! Hang in there!
