    I took the Adenosyl/Methyl Oil, myself for months, as much as 3 splurps/day and found initial exhilarating results. Even a fair amount of sleep. But over time, this has shifted. The last month has been difficult, increasing insomnia, increasing heart palpitations, increased need for potassium as well as increased folate needs/symptoms, constant IBS and stomach growling. I've spent more nights than I want to count sitting up with my heart fluttering or beating irregularly, unable to ascertain what the heck I needed in the potassium:folate:b-12 triumverate. And note this too: it seems that no matter how much potassium I take during the day, my body needs it at night as well, which results in me constantly getting up to respond by drinking K+, getting up to pee, and more reflux from drinking the K+ and so on, ad nauseum. My potassium needs, which used to be limited to day time, are currently at about 2500-2800. My folate ranges from about 13,000mcg-20,000mcg.

    Totally frustrating and exhausting.

    I've tried to figure this out, wondering if this was a case of the Adenosyl 'driving the folate and potassium needs--my own early sense--or whether it was a case of the Adenosyl somehow blocking the use of the Methyl, and therefore somehow raising the need for folate and potassium--which Fred seems to intimate on the 'Refeeding' thread.

    Very confusing.

    I'm still experimenting. But the issues that have definitely gotten worse with the Adenosyl/methyl B12 Oils are my IBS, heart irregularities and my insomnia.

    I wish that everything pointed as clearly to mercury issues as it does for @garyfritz, but it just isn't so obvious. I have had one quadrant of amalgams removed at a cost of about $8,000 (Ugh!), but progress has been halted by a death in the family, so I have a divided focus for the time being... Still, Gary, it looks like a positive corrrelation for you, and for that I'm happy, and heartened for my own situation, as well. I'll push a bit harder to move forward on the removal. It's just that that first quadrant, which did include a nightmarish root canal extraction, freaked me out and has blunted my enthusiasm and my courage for moving forward....

    A little bit chicken here. :eek:

    Take note @Athene* ! Getting the truth out there...

    Ugh, don't tell me about nightmarish RC extractions... I've got one coming up in just over a week! :nervous:

    Yes, I think my signals definitely point toward mercury: long-term issues that matched mercury symptoms that greatly worsened when a filling fell out, huge demand for B12 that Greg (who doesn't believe in merc toxicity, at least not from amalgams) could never explain, adverse reaction to accidental ALA exposure, dramatic drop in B12 need when I started Cutler's Core Four, further improvement as I've been removing amalgams, etc.

    I'm hoping that "everything will be wunnerful" once I get the last amalgams out and chelate for a while!

    @Kathevans Have you considered that other b-vits may be at play? I had a very big downward spiral from using folate and b12 last year that I now think was caused by depleting my thiamine. I have recieved significant success from thiamine now (although it has its own problems)...

    @sb4 Yes, I have considered thiamin. IT doesn't seem to be the problem, though I'm always willing to look at it again. NutrEval Test soon...
