THAT'S A GOOD QUESTION...Ask Elaine
When using the PST disc do we still need to make sure to have a serving of meat daily?
Is magnesium carbonate o.k. to use?
Yes, that is fine.
What is the shelf-life of the Respen-A™ disc?
Each Respen-A™ Disc has a shelf life of two years when stored in its original packaging. Therefore, we can ship a 12-month supply of the Respen-A™ Discs to decrease the cost of shipping, if you desire.
We realize that the ZipSeal of the packaging might fail when opened daily for thirty days, and recommend being gentle when pulling the ZipSeal apart. If the ZipSeal fails, fold the top of the package over a couple of times, and use a bag clip on the corner. DO NOT STORE THE RESPEN-A™ DISCS IN ANY OTHER TYPE OF PACKAGING! The ZipSeal packaging is occlusive, meaning it will keep light and air out.
Once the Respen-A™ Disc has been activated on the skin, it is active for 20-24 hours. This is why we suggest that you put a disc on the child in the morning, and remove it when they go to bed at night. The adhesive tape included with the Respen-A™ is waterproof, so your child can swim or shower while wearing the Respen-A™ Disc.
Does it matter if I put the Respen-A™ disc on before my child takes the calcium supplement?
Most parents report better results if you wait 45 minutes following calcium skin cream, or 1 hour following oral calcium, before applying the disc.
Is it o.k. to take calcium at night?
If you are using Respen-A™ then calcium should not be taken at night as it keeps the parathyroid from turning on- the parathyroid regulates the serum calcium concentration. Because of this, if you take calcium at night then you end up with low calcium.
Parathyroid hormone regulates calcium levels in the blood, largely by increasing the levels when they are too low. It does this through its actions on the kidneys, bones and intestine: Bones – parathyroid hormone stimulates the release of calcium from large calcium stores in the bones into the bloodstream.
If you have osteoporosis then taking calcium at night is a good thing as it would shut down the parathyroid thus preventing it from pulling calcium out of the bones.
Our son has been on Respen-A™ almost two weeks. We are seeing improved mood and conversational skills. Does Respen-A™ help with noisy stimming behaviors?
Improvements with the Respen-A™ Disc build on each other, so give it time, and the stimming may decrease.
Does Respen-A™ help reduce toxins and clear pathogens?
The newest research shows that MAO-A is one of the greatest detoxifiers in the liver (toxins, drugs, metals, chemicals). If you get the MAO-A production healthy again by increasing its activity with the use of the Respen-A™ Disc, then the liver can do its job of detoxification. Respen-A™ does not help reduce pathogens.
