    After halting my Methylation attempt that had me up to 9mg of MFolate per day. I tried to take other supplements to keep something going. Was feeling very bad for a while (mentally). I assumed it was seasonal mostly always seem worse when the sun goes away. I started just taking my Ester C once per day and was feeling a lot better and better able to get up in the AM. Stopped taking just about...

    Found out that I had become very deficient in B3 (among other things perhaps). Decided that I wasn't good to methylate all day. I was gonna start with a good shot in the AM then sometime around lunch pop a 100mg B3. Three days of this and I am feeing a very deep peace that has been missing for a while. I wonder if that's because I have 2 COMT +/- and taking so much MB12 might be causing be to...

    Dr. Ben's MTHFRAde recipe. I looked all over, Dr. Ben's page mentions the ingredients. The links point to his own supplement company and one was broken. I was looking for the original formula. I found these: Links: Dr Ben's Page How to make natural electrolyte mix (AKA MTHFRade) For 1 gallon...

  8. sregan caledonia What I call magnesium deficiency symptoms are heart palps and twitchy feet waking me up during sleep. Who knows, maybe those have been potassium symptoms the whole time, or maybe a combination of magnesium and potassium deficiency. I use Vinco's magnesium glycinate powder,...

    Methyl Trap: What is Methyl Trapping Forum entry How to untrap a Methyl Trap Freddd: Rich gives a very good desription of it somewhere that could be found. Basically the "methyltrap" (hypothesis for 30 years or so) occurs when there is not enough MeCbl for the methylfolate in the cell to complete it's function and it is kicked out of the cell, causing distinctive folate deficiency symptoms...

    whodathunkit But it does sound like you may be experiencing some paradoxical deficiency. Flu-like symptoms are pretty classic Keep taking small increments of potassium throughout the day. See if you can titrate to a point where you feel better. One dose isn't likely to do the whole trick. Another thing that might help you in the short term is to reduce or even stop LCF for a short time. I...

    xchocoholic: Possibly because I'm a celiac and my gut never healed completely. Or I'm having immune system reactions. I had many improvements prior to starting these just by going on the elimination diet. Esp gluten but other food intolerances are responsible for my various "cfs" symptoms. For ex, gluten caused neuro reactions, the phlegm in my throat was and still is from soy. Shiners are...

  14. sregan Most do best with methylfolate several times a day because of it's relatively short halflife. It needs to be taken at different times from the potassium. So again, folate with 1 tablet each 4 hours might work better than 5 at once in the morning. Like potassium, I have gone into...

Apparently a lot I googled this stuff and a lot of people are having the same experience. Many with IBS are seeing a...
