There are two main camps when it comes to methylation issues it seems. The first group has had their pathway poisoned by (principally) mercury and the second camp has significant SNPs in the pathway. There are a few of us with one foot in each camp. These two groups share symptoms and...

bipolar cycling - was decreasing on its own by 2011 but I could sense solid ground under me with addition of thyroid depression - improved within 3 days of starting B12 but eventually I would add a bupropion which helped to keep it that way, I am not entirely happy with this situation. I...

I made many contributions over the nearly 30 years that I worked in psychiatry. My efforts were recognized by my managers and I was asked to return after retirement to run a project in a specially created "Consultant" role. I was a good employee. For others who find themselves in the same...

Remember. I am not a Dr and any thing I write should not replace medical advice. My goal is not for you to copy me but to start your own research and discover the rungs in your own ladder. Things that helped with brain-fog and fatigue.. Vitamin C - and lots of it. Liposomal when I was the...

Let me tell you a story that has impacted my approach to my health issues. I was just starting out with a young family and had an old 1979 LeBaron and I was trying to get it certified, all it needed was a horn. Save the easiest for the last, right? Sure wasn't hard to see what the problem was...

I am pretty excited because Dr Fred Hui said that I don't have to see him for 6 months! I was seeing him twice a week in 2011 and have had hundreds of visits to the clinic for treatments and reviews. This will be put into context later but right now I just want to bask in the warmth of success...

I didn't get everything right. One of the things that I got wrong was not paying attention to the Lyme community. If you have a Chronic multi-system illness no doubt by now someone in the Lyme community has tried to recruit you. They are always on the lookout for people who have a symptom set...

I made the most out of 2014 and the lion's share of 2015. I had a lot of projects on the go at work. There was downsizing and staff shuffles and the group of co-workers that had given me all the problems was scattered to the winds. My bosses were pleased with me and I took on the unofficial...

By the summer of 2013, I am starting to really figure things out. I already knew for example that I needed to open the folate capsules and pour the contents into my buccal pouches for it to be absorbed. They don't give this stuff away and at even 9 capsules a day I was not able to get results...

Yes, everybody knows that MTHFR is a pretty funny acronym. It stands for methylene tetrahydrofolate reductase and this is an enzyme. What is an enzyme? Let' s review. Your DNA has 2 primary functions - pass on your genetics to the next generation and to make protein. Some of this protein is in...

It would turn out that the acceptance of the position of, "Team Lead" would be one of the best decisions that I ever made. By this you might think that it was clear-sailing or that it was universally positive. It was anything but... The staff who were against me, continued to be against me...

October, the hospital decided to flex its muscles and told me that since I wouldn't work nights or run to codes that I would have to find somewhere else to work and that my presence was requested at an interview for a counselling job downtown. I had mixed feelings. My DNA ran deep in the...

If any of you have actually read my story, thanks. I hope that something will help you with your recovery. As soon as I was let go from work, I got busy. What was it with not being able to stand - this Orthostatic Intolerance. I started reading more. Apparently, this was associated with...

Termination is not what happened. But that is how it felt to me. I was sent home "Incapable of Performing Duties of a Registered Nurse". It was not specified but the message was to get on medication if I wanted to come back. I was unable to locate a union representative and was alone at the...

In May, Dr Fred Hui had me try TMG and SAMe. These are components of the methylation pathway. I still have no clue why he started me with these two rather than folate and B12, but it may have been related to my story about my tongue swelling up. I developed the worst soul-sucking depression and...

Work was a difficult place. My employer was becoming more aggressive in terms of forcing me to accept night shifts and normal duties. At this time, I was on straight days and was not responding to any Code Whites which is the call for assistance in dealing with distraught patients. I did not...

In January, I continued with the curcumin experiment I had become sensitive to it and to the parent compound turmeric. I had 6 back-scratchers in different rooms at home, one at work and a collapsible in my coat pocket. I was miserable. I went for my second colonoscopy and a number of polyps...

I was still posting to Yahoo's Frequent Dose Chelation. One of the members named, "hirvinc" had been trying to help me but his messages always seemed to be encrypted. He wouldn't just come out and say what he was thinking...he would try to lead me to ideas and lines of thinking and my mind was...

I had a meeting with the Head Nurse. This was the same one who called me in for the memory issues 12 months earlier. He said that he was not super-keen on my returning, He had known me during the time when I had Bipolar and I could be irritable and challenging. I told him that returning was...

Dr Fred Hui was helpful in that he would listen and try to help as he could. There is not a lot to be done during detox. Take the supplements and wait. Everyone gets worse before they get better. Maybe not little kids, so much. In November, I was coming out of the dump phase and had great...
