International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    I have been eating a low sulfur and zero thiol diet for a month. The only sulfur comes from meat, chicken and beef. I feel better, as I have been sulfur or thiol intolerant thanks to a non existant level of molybdenum via a hair test.

    My protocol is:

    10 mg manganese
    50 mg zinc picolinate
    500 mcg molybdenum
    18.4 mg lithium orotate
    50 mg p5p
    100 mg B2
    600 mg flush niacin
    600 mg magnesium
    1.2 grams of fish oil 750 epa 250 dha
    5000 iu vitamin d
    200 mcg selenium
    Jarrow NAG twice a day
    Jarrow milk thistle twice a day

    I'm very irritable and experience high anxiety especially socially. Excitoxins are definitely in play.

    Any ideas on what I can change or add? I'm thinking of a UAA test next to check for ammonia, taurine and homocysteine. I can't afford a doctor so I'm wondering if holistic healths UAA is a good idea or life extensions UAA which doesn't cover everything su h as ammonia but I can get a blood ammonia test for $50 from another online lab.

    Btw. B12 and folate levels were great in a blood test, ever thing tested normal, EVERYTHING!. Vitamin d levels are at 33.

    Btw 2: I have knee injuries and they seem to get excited (pain) depending on my baseline anxiety depending on what I eat. Hope this helps paint a picture.

    Btw3: I have a phase 1 liver detox gene (Cyp1a2) that inhibits detox. A few weeks of supplementing and a cup of coffee doesn't get me as wired as it used to.I guess it's progress.

    Ps my test results are attached below.

    Have you evere tested your homocysteine levels? I ask because you have the double MTHFR mutation as I have. My Hcy levels were through the roof and causing a series of issues.

    I have not. Is urine homocysteine the correct test or blood? What kind of issues is it causing btw?
