    Dear All,

    I know everyone here has tried supplements/meds that worked for awhile then stop working. I've had this happen with several supplements.....namely Magnesium and Flax Seed, Fish oil.

    I was wondering if anyone has tried rotating use of the meds/supplements. Like take Magnesium 1 week, then take Flax Seed the next week. Rotate back and forth between the two.

    I think our bodies are genetically programmed to stay 1 way good or bad. Maybe rotating the meds/supplements back and forth will keep the body from going back to the way it wants to be.

    but I think the pulsing is just for antivirals and antibiotics (and possibly for things that support that).

    I don't know about rotating supplements. I'd figure that if I'm low on magnesium I should take it all the time even if I don't feel like it's helping, but that's just me. (And if I were more awake I could probably "argue" for your point too! :) I'd like to see what more knowledgable people have to say.
