    Hi all!
    In last weeks I'm researching a lot about reduce inflammation and mitochondria support.

    this two problems are fatal for my conditions from previous experiences...

    The question is - what work for you for these difficulties?
    Any good experiences?

    Thanks for answers!
    all best, Martin

    For mitochondria:
    • NT Factor to support mitochondrial membranes
    • PolyMVA to support energy production and remove toxins
    • Optimizing methylation
    • Exercising as able to promote proliferation of new mitochondria

    For inflammation:
    • Curcumin in a lipid processed bioavailable form, oral or IV
    • Boswellia

    Edit:

    And CoQ10 and carnitine for mitochondria.

    Yes, I take them all.

    I'm on a lower carb diet. I just factor it in.
    Nope. I'm wary of pushing the mitochondria too fast when they don't want to an causing damage. I'm trying to feed what I have.

    That said, my ND says IVs of AMP can get people moving. Its legal in Canada but not here.

    Ive tried curcumin at doses on the label and higher but didnt notice anything. But was told by someone recently the brand you use is important and doses need to be higher than whats on the label.

    Any suggestions on brands to try?

    You also need a good supply of the thyroid hormone T3 for the mito to function & my guess would be this could be a problem for many with our illness. This also implicates reasonable adrenal function which has shown to be affected in some studies.

    This is supposed to be a powerful brand. I tried it a few years ago but couldn't continue as it caused more pain, a huge amount of sweating and my whole body had a strong yeasty smell.

    For imflMation I was taking fish oil, then I realized why my NK numbers would not increase!!! So avoid the fish oil if you have Cfs!!!!
    I cook everything with turmeric. Try to eat green foods.
    For mito: coq10, ala+alc, d-ribose

    Staying away from wheat, dairy , eggs and sugar has helped a lot with my inflammation. If I cheat, I definitely notice the difference within a day or two. B12 with adeno and methyl has also helped. ALA as well. Gaia turmeric supreme.

    Curcumin is a broad spectrum Phase 2 detoxer. It can help mobilize toxins, but you need to be able to get them fully out of your body in Phase 3. If not, they could be reabsorbed and you could have symptoms as you describe develop.

    Its a COX-2 inhibitor too (anti-inflammatory). I took 3g a day throughout my cancer treatment for its anticancer properties, and take it currently to help with inflammation from IVIG. I've taken up to 6g orally and had IVs of up to 100g of it and its helped tremendously.

    Its not terribly bioavailable. It needs to be processed with a lipid and/or pipeline to be more bioavailable.

    Thorne Meriva and Euromedica Curapro to are both high quality products.

    Do you have a good recommendation for a reasonably priced, good quality CoQ10?

    I use Thorne Reseach Q Best.

    I think Costco has a decent ubiquinol product, too.
