My Naturopath would like me to start taking modified citrus pectin before surgery. She says this will make cells more sticky. I was curious to see if this would cross the blood brain barrier and all I could find said no.
Then I made the connection to cimetidine and that there is a similar logic behind its use. My question is, does cimetidine cross the BBB? If not, how can I help to facilitate it crossing the BBB? Would a proton pump inhibitor do this? (Sorry if I've got that wrong, I'm trying to put lots together.) My partner was reading that inhaling products can help them cross the BBB. It seems like if it were that simple, that's how it would be done. But I do recall reading about a drug that is delivered through a nasal spray to help get it across the BBB.
