I am particularly impressed by the Transdermal Micronutrients she has been developing.
"I see many patients for whom we know what the micronutrient deficiency is that causes their problem, but giving those micronutrients by mouth does not help, or indeed makes them worse. What I suspect is getting in the way is the gut.
For micronutrients to get into the body to do good they must first get there! To achieve this we need the ability to digest and absorb them and the energy to do this. I suspect the latter is a problem for many of my severe ME patients. Food allergy, the fermenting gut and poor stomach, liver and pancreatic function may all be a problem.
To get round this problem I am putting together some transdermal preparations to be sprayed onto the skin. A key ingredient is DMSO - this passes through skin like a knife through butter and carries through all dissolved within it. DMSO is a naturally occuring organic sulphur containing molecule, derived from tree bark and closely reltaed to MSM (a useful treatment for arthritis). The early clinical feedback has been most encouraging and I am in the throes of measuring blood levels of micronutrients before and after treatment"
