    Yes, I've done EFT for many years. It doesn't take too long to learn. Take it in small chunks over a few days and you'll have it memorized. You can print out the drawing of the face with the tapping points on the Mercola page as a cheat sheet to refer to.

    You tap with your fingers on certain acupuncture/acupressure points. I don't really have the energy to physically tap for very long either. So the really interesting thing I discovered is that once you have it memorized, you don't even need to physically tap. If I just imagine myself tapping, that's just as good. So mostly what I do is lay in bed at the end of the day as I'm going to sleep and think of the issue I want to work on, then imagine tapping on the points, and it still works!

    I'm glad I could help. We have very similar issues, which is how I know all this stuff.

    Beyond, thanks for this info about yucca. I just started taking it for the CBS mutation. This interesting happened. I've had a yeast based athlete's foot infection on my toes for most of this year. I couldn't get anything to clear it up. Recently, I noticed it's finally settling down. So based on your info, it's sounds like it might be the yucca helping.

    i developed a sensitivity to chloramine in tap water when i got sick, and it would give me really nasty heartburn, then burning in the guts. to get rid of it, i use charcoal filters rated to remove chloramine (not regular activated charcoal filters, pentek chlorplus and catalytic activated carbon) in my reverse osmosis system. i can tell the same day when the filters get saturated with chloramine by the resulting heartburn. i also found that most bottled spring/distilled/RO water made me sick, sometimes due to chloramine and sometimes due to soluble organic contaminants despite any claims.

    I have been reading a story about a guy who has/had similar case to mine.Very athletic at young age,always on top in every sport but when they sent him to swimming class he was always last one,the worst performing kid in water.
    Decade later he found out that chlorinated water was the root cause of his health issues and made dramatic improvements with chlorinated filter system but in my country it's very expensive and I can't afford it.

    Hi Steve,
    Have you got a result for MAO A R297R (rs6323) that you can add to your list?

    I want to exclude Marfan's.Yes,I have lots of it's symptoms from GERD to kyphosis to scoliosis etc. but I am average height and I am VERY unflexible and there has been no Marfan's in my family history that I know of.
    So I think I have this homocystinuria but what test do I need to prove it and does it shorten my life even if I get my methylation working?

    Marfan's can occur as an inherited mutation OR spontaneous mutation. Some families carry their own mutation. Can be hard to find, as there are many possible locations on FBN1 gene. Possibly epigenetic regions may be involved.

    Not everyone with Marfan's is tall & thin. Marfan's can manifest in one family in different ways. Some can carry the mutation, yet have no signs of the condition. Some can have a more severe expression of the syndrome than others. Some can have normal lifespan, others shortened life-span.

    Then there are changes in TGFB1 & TGFB2 to look at related to Loey-Dietz.

    Info: http://www.marfan.net.au/showsection.toy?sid=333546

    I just found an interesting link relating aspects of Marfan's to possible dietary approaches:

    http://www.ctds.info/marfan.html

    For Homocystinuria you can test blood Homocysteine level

    Starting to feel very uncomfortable......
    I have seen some of the SNPs of people with ME but I seem to be the most ****ed up genetically here.
    There are so many mutations and the double homo COMT and no VDR,or my MTR and MTRR mutations meaning I was B12 deficient since birth and I'm just soooooo depressed I can't even cry anymore.
    Someone show me the light!

    Hi Steve,

    I look at your list of symptoms and I have another question. Do you have gynocomastia? If so I assume puberty onset?

    Many of your symptoms look familiar but the balance is shifted in a way not familiar to me. I think I can possibly specifically help with the muscles and neurological and mood, personality and neuropsyc symptoms and skin disorders. Many of the items were growth and hormone disorders during growth which can also be caused by deficiencies AND something else. It is possible that if these active b12/folate nutrients can help some of your symptoms may go away leaving the other problems more evident. The other side of the coin is that woth the large number of neuropsyc situations you may have an extreme response to some of the nutrients so I would suggest a very careful titration in a specific order so you can avoid some possible reactions. However, the other side of it is that some of these things can reverse literally in hours in some case. The nutrients will potentially affect tissue growth all over the body.

    See this and stop worrying about those mutations: Is Yasko's Nutrigenomics Panel enough?

    In my opinion, looking at this very limited set of mutations is simply bad science.

    Nanobug I think I do agree. This genetic trend looks like a dead end for me personally, at least for now . Or maybe you can benefit from genetic testing like Gestalt did but I havent seem anyone curing with it and we all know that the Yasko protocol its very very very expensive.

    A current methylation blood test could be of more utility. Have you had one done?

    Hi Steve,

    I can relate to most of your symptoms, except the hormonal disbalances. I also have severe OCD, every thought and movement I make has to be part of a pattern and my mental energy goes into completing rituals. Since your development period has also been with this disease, I noted the physical deformations listed in your post.

    I also have scoliosis, sunken chest, peyronie's, undeveloped jaw, etc. since this began with me at age 1 and my body didn't get a chance to develop properly. Have you experienced symptoms with nose growth?

    No, I have not. I have since moved my focus to a more complex set of diseases entitled Mast Cell Activation Disorders.

    So you are saying that when I get my B12 levels up to a normal level it will be a personality changer? I've also heard that people who were B12 deficient for a long time will have physical symptoms and quite uncomfortable?
    I do not have gynocomastia.
    Tell me about the the careful titration in a "specific order",please.

    I'm sorry to hear that. :( I'm sure we will find a way to improve things that can be saved.
    Anyway I'm sure I have not only B2 deficiency but a lot more.I seem to have chronic malabsorbtion and spent my childhood eating chocolates,potato chips and rarely meat and more rarely vegetables.I mean I was 23 already when I first ate broccoli,sauerkraut or kefir in my life.

    Steve-22: You also mentioned abnormal hair growth. I'm not a hairy person, but my legs shockingly are. It could be relatated to blood circulation. Is your hair growth evenly distributed?

    I'm not sure.I'm a really hairy guy compared to an average joe,I have to shave my shoulders and back and there's some hair started appearing on my BICEPS yet I can only grow neck beard,no full facial hair.
    Not only too hairy but my body is feminime too.I have fat distribution of a girl.Height is 5 ft 7 inch weight is 145 lbs puffy face,double chin,fat on back that you can grab,beer belly though I only drink alcohol once every 2 years and I have even have a fat bulge on my groin.I have never been overweight,the heaviest I've been was 158 pounds after started taking the SSRI.
