Body rejecting any form of vitamins
My brother has had the Coxack virus / jappy flu since high school. He is now 28. He has got pains in his arms, he's got headaches, he is permanently tired. Now his body is rejecting any form of vitamins. Enjections help of a day or two but it does not help if he take any vitamin tablets. This was tested and they said he has got scurvy ( like in the oldendays) he is trying to follow a well balanced diet. Please help. He has been getting Bronchitis and other chest related illnisses reasently. The doctor said it was from the lacke of vitamins in his body.
