Hi Folks! I received Tetrasil by I.V. drip, in a sterile water solution, last week. We were uncertain about the buffer solution, as it had to be nonreactive, and pH 6.5, so opted for (nonsaline) water. The water tested at 6, so that seemed O.K. The drip was set for about 3 hours. The tetrasil went into solution alright, but after it was all done, there was a residue in the bottom of the bag. Hopefully, I got enough of it. The doctor told me that nonsaline water causes red blood cells to burst (easily replaced), and I guess that accounts for the ache in my hand & wrist (a vein in my hand was used) during the drip, and my hand swelled up somewhat afterwards. I probably should have investigated more thoroughly, what the buffer solution should have been. Haste!--I just wanted to get this thing done! Except for the sore hand, there were no incidences at all. The doctor insisted I eat some fruit & cheese during the process, to be sure my blood Sugar
didn't drop. Boyd Graves told me that I should expect a fever. I didn't get one, and was disappointed, till a couple days later, I became quite over-heated, and still am. I'll be going in for blood tests in a week or so, and have a "base-line" of recent tests, to measure anything that may happen. I have been taking vitamin C, at approximately 3 grams/day, and this has been raising my CD4's, over the last few months, by about 10+, at each 2 month testing. Any increases beyond that would likely be the result of tetrasil. Viral load increased, as CD4's increased, but it's still not all that high. We'll see if anything happens there. Graves' improvements occurred over time, and that is my expectation: months, a year, 2 years. It was difficult getting the procedure arranged. I scared of my Naturopath, and the doctor that finally did it, was nervous about it. Delays! Well, it's done, and if I got enough of the tetrasil into my body, there may be improvements to come. I'll post. Sssteve
