greenshots I am still overwhelmed by all this complicated genetic gymnastics. In fact, I really have no idea what I am doing. Correct me if I am wrong, but boiling down what you said above, I get the impression that these might be the best first steps: 1) test my urine to see how bad the sulfur problem (CBS) REALLY is 2) proceed forward with small doses of hydroxy and methlymate. I know I will have to dilute these, or take them only 2X/week. Otherwise I will be gushing toxins out of my system. I definitely have an issue with heavy metals--lead, arsenic, thallium, and a few others to a lesser extent. Some additional facts about me: I feel like a wired manic from even a pinch of the TMG--not an option for me right now! And I can't sleep at all without my L-tryptophan, so not an option to stop that, as my sleep is bad enuf as it is. I do not have a strep history or any big gut issues, tho before my collapse with "mono" I did have an amoeba, which is gone at this point. Thanks for your input. It is still all Greek to me.
