    Indeed :(
    I always have at least one inflammation marker up, and also have a hard time tolerating antioxidants that everybody loves :bang-head:

    @Mya Symons Have you looked into low dose naltrexone? (I wouldn't be surprised if I've already mentioned this to you:rolleyes:)

    I've been using it about 9 months now. Greatly increased my stamina, presumably due to less inflammation.

    :mad:

    I did try low dose naltrexone, but I don't know if it was from a reputable place. It made all my symptoms worse. I've also heard that is shouldn't be used if a person has Hashimoto's because it boosts the strength of synthroid. I am not sure if that is true or not.

    I'm well past menopause! I don't seem to have any problem with coconut oil - in fact it seems highly beneficial - although I'm not sure what you mean by 'pulling'. I'm not aware of any problem with salicylates.

    I think we probably have very different biochemistries.

    Where do you buy straight Catalase from?
    The supplements I found online come with other ingredients like Zinc, Folic Acid, etc etc, never straight Catalase.
    Any brand recommended?

    How much baking soda is in a pill quarter teaspoon?

    When undergoing a bout of heavy PEM How much baking soda would one use and how frequently?

    Are they're any dangers in using it daily as a preventive if you are prone to PEM

    I take it just after exercise, and it really helps my PEM, a quarter teaspoon.
    Don't take it every day, be very sparing with it because it affects the stomach acid, and then you'll have digestion problems. I take it 2-3 times a week.

    On the subject of catalase. You can get it pure from suzycohen.com

    But I'm reading it can cause cancer. Any thoughts?

    (Sodium bicarbonate) It probably depends on your diet - if you are on a low-acid/high-alkaline diet you probably don't need to worry as much?

    That is great
    Sometimes I have severe PEM in cases like that would it be okay to use it daily?

    I l learned that most people need a little baking soda every day to get their ph more in balance as most of us tend to be too acidic. But what is really interesting is you need to be a little less acidic to detox. I started doing a teaspoon a day and electrolyte powder before long,low heat, saunas. Extremely helpful.

    My doc warned me about taking baking soda every day since it would affect stomach acid and you could find yourself not digesting efficiently. I myself do take it after exercise and it does help, which is about three times a week. But I don't take it everyday.
