There's a buzz among patients of Dr. Ritchie Shoemaker. Dr. Shoemaker has been at the forefront of biotoxin illness for the last 14 years.
The buzz surrounds the VIP or vasoactive intestinal polypeptide. The VIP is a hormone. It contains 28 amino acid residues. It plays a crucial role in the nervous system. It increases the amount of water and electrolytes released from the pancreas and gut. It helps break down fat and glycogen. The list goes on.
Dr. Shoemaker is seeing improvements in VIP levels with the drug aviptadil. For more information check out Pat Sullivan's blog.
