What increased your sensitivities?


Senior Member
I spent over a decade being extremely sensitive to herbs & meds. After using the supplements CDP Choline and/or Choline Bitartrate for several weeks, they permanently removed these sensitivities, but it left me with critical and alarming levels of fatigue and brain fog to where I can barely function.

What caused your sensitivities to INCREASE? Has anybody used anything that may have actually caused their sensitivities to things to increase?

I'm trying to get my sensitivities back so that medicines & herbs actually work again, and so that I can function properly again.

Thyroid medication. Thyroxine brought on full blown MCAS for me and brought me down to only eating 8 foods.
