When a Hospital MD cannot comment on a supplement, how can liability fall to the Naturopathic Doctor?
Doctor, Can I Give Hospital Patient Supplements?
Doctor: I Cannot Comment on Nutrition Supplements
Patient: Help Me.
The doctor cannot comment on Omega 3.
The doctor cannot comment on Borage Oil.
The doctor cannot comment on Curcumin.
The doctor cannot comment on Bromelain.
The doctor cannot comment on Cell Salts.
The doctor cannot comment on Arnica.
The doctor cannot comment on Ashwagandha (even though my mom can no longer stand up or pull herself up from a seated position).
Can the doctor comment on MSM?

The C Reactive Protein (CRP) was 200 at patient admission.
It is down to 180.
I have Dr. D'Adamo's books, one of which is Arthritis.
I asked Life Extension Foundation which of their blood tests measures inflammation.
C Reactive Protein was the answer.
I asked the hospital nurse did she know of a drug to help bring down the C Reactive Protein score.
She said she did not know of a drug to bring down the C Reactive Protein, the patient is only getting pain medicine and an antibiotic for the Urinary Tract Infection, which in the elderly can have effects beyond the urinary tract.
Fine. The patient (my mom) is in tremendous pain. I'm thinking, the higher the CRP the higher the pain.
Now why wouldn't there be a drug to bring down the CRP score?
Possible answer: the CRP goes up due to stress. Pain medicine relieves stress. The CRP will go down as the pain medicine works.
Maybe my mom has more than arthritis, she might have cancer. I know cancer causes pain.

Family members of the patient can bring in Kentucky Fried Chicken into the hospital (Texas) and give it to the patient but anything in pill form puts the hospital at risk.
I was able to get the patient on 200 mg of Co-Q10 because since 2009, I got my mom to present this to her doctor who said, yes, at your age and given your conditions, Co-Q10 is good for your heart--instead of taking 10 mg of Ubiquinol like your health nut son is taking, take 200 mg of Co-Q10, it does not have to be Ubquinol.
In Summary, can a Naturopathic Doctor be part of a medical care team with an MD?
As I age, I would like to have my supplements in my end-stage of life, in a hospital.
Please tell me supplements and Naturopathic Doctors are allowed (if not welcomed) in Connecticut and New York hospitals. Is it state by state or is the federal protection for patients following Naturopathic protocols?http://www.dadamo.com/cgi-bin/Blah/Blah.pl?m-1471195610/
