In my research there are only three things readily available that have shown to be effective in keeping from recurring. VITAMIN D, ASPIRIN and PHYSICAL EXERCISE. This can be checked by doing a PUBMED or google scholar database search.
Vitamin D blood levels have to be optimal, around 5000/iu at least daily. And make sure is D3 not D2 which is quite ineffective for us. This is what most people get prescribed by doctors, D2, it’s so weak that the dosages are like 50000! Ridiculous! Make sure it’s D3!
Aspirin either a daily low dose one or a regular enteric every three days.
Exercise, you don’t have to be an Olympic athlete, but try to get off your arse at least a couple hours daily!
I throw in milk thistle and corioulos mushroom capsules as there is some evidence for them. The main issue is making sure the product quality, where’s it from, who makes it!
Thank you Radnyc
I am already on D3 supplements, 10.000 ui per day, since I had D3 deficit to start with. I might lower this to 5000 in a few weeks.
Did you not add Vitamin K to the D3 supplementation? I am reading too much D3 without adding K can remove too much calcium from your bones and into your blood vessels (I am not saying this is true, just that I've read it)
I will consider low dose aspirin, but then again, I have a mild tinnitus, and it worries me that it might get worse with aspirin, I will read more about it and decide.
Exercise - I am having long walks for now, I am too weak after surgery to do any exercising, but will look into gradually increasing it, May I ask what is what you did? Cardio? High intensity? Lifting?
