    I knew Vitamin C was a big big deal. I've taken it before when my Adrenals have been tapped out and it works wonders. If you read about "Adrenal Support" supplements maybe half of them will even mention it if that many. It's probably the most important thing in my opinion. You may also read that Vitamin C lowers cortisol. Maybe but apparently your adrenals can't make cortisol without it and...

    In my last blog entry I made the connection between my increasing IBS, seasonal allergy (which was new for me) and my low cortisol levels. Note that I did a salivary test in the past which showed a high "morning response" then low the rest of the day. This was many years ago. But I know exactly what low cortisol feels like for me. My strategy to fix started with Pantethine and Paba. My old...

    This was a reply I added to this post it was eye opening for me and wanted to share it here.... I do believe that I was getting the coconut oil into my system just from keeping it in the oral cavity. My last post above is enough for me to believe that is possible. The initial reaction from the possibly bad (gram negative, candida, whatever we want to call it) bacteria was to completely shut...

    "Vit D ramps up thyroid hormone T4 -> T3 conversion, but it doesn't increase your ACTH and thus doesn't increase your cortisol. So if your cortisol is already too low, then boosting Vit D will further reduce your cortisol, because thyroid hormone T3 requires plenty of cortisol to achieve the boost in metabolism (since thyroid hormone T3 and cortisol work synergistically to achieve the...

    A very significant finding for me!!! In researching for my COMT++/MAO++ Daughter's OCD I have made a significant discovery. Based on this article that I was working off for my daughter's OCD. The relevant passages: When we experience stress, many people rally to the cause and increase their performance. Yet others seems to melt and fall apart under the same type of pressure. How can two...

    RE: This Post of mine It's been 2 years since I made the above post. Almost in panic because of the severity of how hard this was for her. What seemed like an acute onset of severe OCD. This was verified by a psychologist with a PHD who specializes in OCD. If you read the post you'll see I bounced from trying one thing to another. Many things seemed to help but nothing would last. I think I...

    In May I had one of the worst Flu's I've ever had. In a week I lost 6 pounds and my gut bacteria was a mess. Then a week of Zithro made things even worse. What came out of me did not look healthy in the least (enough said). I had some Jarrow Plantarum laying around so took a couple of those a day after the Flu and before the Zith and it helped a ton! Waited until after the Zith was over and...

    Trying to find out how much liposomal compares in absorption and effective dose as the other forms: From click here: "Reports say that 6 g of oral liposomally-carried vitamin C is equal in delivering vitamin C inside cells, where it does its work, to 50 grams of intravenous vitamin C." "A loading dose, for several months, of liposomal vitamin C is likely 2,000 mg three times a day,...

    Work in progress. Working this strategy around Ultra-Min and mineral replacement as the foundation Daily AM: Ultra-Min Likely: Sunflower Lecithin Likely: 50mg B3, nibble p5p and Tryptophan (might also add small amount of N-Acetyl Tyrosine) Optional Testing: Copper, Molybdenum, Boron Optional Testing: small amounts B1, B2, Biotin, B5 Optional Testing: MB12 Optional Testing: MFolate Optional...

    Today I took my first Ultra-Mins tablet this morning. Felt the familiar swishing in my head and knew I needed some Tryptophan to boost Serotonin. This morning took about 40mg B3, a nibble off my p5p and about 150 mg of N-Acetyl Tyrosine to boost Dopamine and a 500mg Jarrow Tryptophan. This has been an excellent day! One thing I wanted to mention was how difficult it is, for me anyway, to tell...

    Doing very good on my new Mineral protocol (in my previous post). Energy is starting to return, the most noticeable thing has been how it has evened out my mood. No more roller coaster and a bit of optimism coming through. Not sure if that is mostly the Chromium and Vanadium which are notorious for controlling blood sugar but I'll take it. Also possible that I have a Mercury burden from years...

    Currently researching Minerals, especially sources of Trace minerals to hopefully cover the bases during Methylation supplementation. This link, from Divine Health, is even better than the one below Macro-minerals: Calcium • Phosphorous • Potassium • Magnesium • Sulfur • Sodium • Chloride Trace Minerals: Iron • Boron • Chromium • Iodine • Manganese • Molybdenum • Selenium • Silicon •...

    I started taking the DQ supps again in early December with favorable results... Took them for a few weeks was feeling worse and worse. In my previous SMP attempts, even when I ramped up to 9mg MFolate per day, I had no issues with Potassium deficiency. I assume my potassium stores were plentiful back then. Now they aren't and I need to supplement potassium. I learned that and was supplementing...

    From: click here Not getting enough Magnesium is actually VERY likely to be the most common cause of low potassium From: Elizabeth Maxim's Blog "Potassium will relieve procrastination and zinc will enhance mental clarity." "Potassium. An electrolyte, it helps conduct electrical charges in the body. Potassium cations are important in brain and nerve function. I have recently come to...

    I thought I remember discussing this with someone that Tryptophan might be used up during taking methylation supps. I was doing good for a while on the last "current" protocol. Slowly started seeing a depression come on. The last few days it's been very bad. I've been taking my small bites of CoEnzymated B vitamins and such with no relief and not sure what to do. I have been taking MB12 and...
