  1. really? I wonder if my ct scan i had would have picked this up. let us know what they say about this when you get more info. thanks
  2. Severe Symptoms of Hyperhistaminemia after the Treatment of Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia with Tretinoin (all-transRetinoic Acid)
  3. This could be something else like you said or this could be acid reflux. especially eating all that garlic for one of your later meals. then laying down the heartburn gets worse. thats why some people raise the head of their bed a foot so they are not laying in a flat position that have gerd. it helps reflux coming up from your stomach because of gravity. reflux can get so bad it feels like your having a heart attack. it can be a scary feeling. many people have gone to the ER thinking they are having a heart attack when it is actually bad reflux. again not saying this is it, but something to keep in mind next time it happens. this reflux thing again could be due to weakened muscles(that alot of us deal with) that could also be internal allowing the acid to come back up. next time this happens maybe try some tums or some liquid antacid(something that works fast) to test this and see if it helps. if it does you then know its reflux.
  4. i only did this briefly and felt i didnt have good results. it seemed to further dry my skin and also seemed to have a negative effect on any ed type symptoms. this is from Rich on the folate protocol from cases he mentioned that had bad reactions. Simplified Treatment Approach Based on the Glutathione Depletion- Methylation Cycle Block Pathogenesis Hypothesis for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) by Rich Van Konynenburg, Ph.D. II 3. A third person had a history of autoimmune disease, including Sjogren’s syndrome. After her fourth dosage of combined FolaPro and Intrinsi/B12/folate, she experienced “a moderately severe autoimmune flare, with numerous joint and soft tissue issues, fatigue, pain, etc.” She also experienced a severe flare of Sjogren’s syndrome, with “very dry mouth, dry eyes, and severe eye pain.” Six days after discontinuing the supplements, she had a thorough ophthalmologyworkup and was diagnosed with autoimmune scleritis. She has been given topical steroids and has reported that her eyes are greatly improved. I dont plan to try high dose folate again anytime soon. I havent had that methylation test but I would maybe take it if I could find a place locally that would do it and my insurance covered it or it was affordable. those your test results? sam-e seems a little low but sam-e to sah seems to be in reference range.
  5. Neurologically,cholinergicis the abbreviated term referring toacetylcholine.[1]Theparasympathetic nervous system, which uses acetylcholine almost exclusively to send its messages, is said to be almost entirely cholinergic. Neuromuscular junctions, preganglionic neurons of thesympathetic nervous system, thebasal forebrain, and brain stem complexes are also cholinergic. In addition, the receptor for the merocrine sweat glands are also cholinergic, since acetylcholine is released from postganglionic sympathetic neurons.
  6. Neurologically,cholinergicis the abbreviated term referring to acetylcholine. The parasympathetic nervous system, which uses acetylcholine almost exclusively to send its messages, is said to be almost entirelycholinergic The parasympathetic system is responsible for stimulation of "rest-and-digest" or "feed and breed"[2]activities that occur when the body is at rest, especially after eating, includingsexual arousal,salivation,lacrimation(tears),urination,digestionanddefecation. Its action is described as being complementary to that of thesympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for stimulating activities associated with thefight-or-flight response.
  7.!po=4.27632 Gastric acid hypersecretory states: recent insights and advances Gastric acid secretion is largely control by cholinergic, histaminergic and peptidinergic(especially gastrin) pathways Maybe gut health, flora is changed because of prolonged hyperacidic state.

  8. well all i would say is have a game plan of what you want to tell him. and be prepared that he might be no help at all. unfortunately just like haniaD was saying, Drs look at us and think we are healthy. Ive come to the point where im basically just using doctors for the different test i know they can run, to rule things out. ive pretty much had all the gastro test, short of a liver ultrasound and biopsy. i actually just had a ct scan of my liver, pancreas, gall bladder, stomach ect. nothing remarkable of course. and it cost me 500 bucks and a slightly higher risk for cancer. Awesome.
  9. ive pretty much taken every brand of ppi including lansoprazole(not on any atm but considering going back on nexium otc.) I would say its safe to try at least short term if that is what your concerned about, at least to see if it helps. start with the lowest dose. if you have any discomfort in your throat this could be a different type of reflux known as lpr for throat has been looked at three times now both by an ent and gastrologist. ent diagnosed me with lpr due to red swollen larynx and gastro dr diagnosed me with eosinophilic esophagitis which he also wanted to treat with a double dose ppi. They are a double edged sword though because they can cause some dehydration which can lead to further muscle weakness and are little bit drying. just the opposite of what we need of course. but id have to say are almost necessary for anyone with serious reflux issues. you could try something less potent like tums first maybe to see if that gives you any sort of relief.
  10. take bromelain for your muscle and joint pain

  11. you guys should take a look at this. there are related connections to this other drug called mefloquine. i believed used in war time since the 70s and places like afghanistan to cure malaria. its got some nasty long term side effects. one of the theories is it induces vitamin a toxicity in the liver and eventually causes spillage out into the blood stream that effects the brain. basically like wilson's disease except with vitamin a. the other big one is it may prevent the body's ability to break down acetylcholine. this can lead to a whole host of issues as well. they are looking into the long term side effects of this drug more because so many soldiers have taken it. they are being diagnosed with post traumatic stress syndrome, but it is much more then that. check it out. Mefloquine Toxicity and Reversal. Mefloquine use, psychosis, and violence: A retinoid toxicity hypothesis Mefloquine use has been linked to severe gastrointestinal and neuropsychiatric adverse effects, including cognitive disturbances, anxiety, depression, psychosis, and violence. The adverse effects of the drug are thought to result from the secondary consequences of hepatocellular injury; in fact, mefloquine is known to cause a transient, anicteric chemical hepatitis. This is seperate. The action of Mefloquine could in fact be compared to a nerve agent, as it prevents the body from being able to break down acetylcholine, which is what causes the dysfunction in the nervous response from transitioning between the sympathetic and parasympathetic reflexes, and leads to skeletal muscle breakdown, breathing issues, and cardiac complaints. This inability to break down acetylcholine increases the likelihood of anxiety and fear-based responses to stimuli such as mild social gaffes, loud noises, fast movements, and increases the likelihood of insomnia and sleep disturbances. Symptoms of High Acetylcholine this is very broad, so not sure about the truth of all this.just started looking into this. figured I might as well post it.)

  12. are you shiting me? this cant be the cure. Its vitamin D! the cure is so vitamin d for like the next two months.its 100 percent the vitamin d doing it. its also 100 percent the copper doing it too! so like 200 percent! your crazy man. this is crazy. it is so vitamin d... seriously though i noticed my tongue coating getting better too when i was taking biotin. biotin in higher doses is supposed to fight candida so there might be something to this as well.
  13. I call bullshit on your bullshit. You have been leading people astray since day one and not coming clean about any of it.The vets on here know what im talking about. So now you think people are just making up blood test results if they dont support your theories? that is some lame ass shit. you havent been tryingtohelp anyone but yourself. where do you think your going anyway? your the copper man remember? its 100 percent the copper doing it right? you tell people on here what kind of copper supplement you were taking?(you know the one that had 10 other vitamins in it?)like the time you said sam-e was giving you more energy when you were also drinking red bulls for breakfast. il post some scans i do have when i get the time, but it sure as hell wont be to appease you. i have zero respect. So now we are sliding into Vitamin D, thats great I think it might be vitamin d too.
  14. man, that is a low, low, very short dose of accutane to be having all those problems. that is crazy. so the elevated bile in the serum? maybe just due to the type of supplements you were taking? actually never mind that range dosnt seem to be any cause for concern after some quick googling. not 100 percent sure though.
  15. This article is old as he'll but anyways. Ascorbic acid activity in adrenal glands of rats with hypervitaminosis A Btw it is a real pain to try to type on this forum with your phone
  16. I'll go down the list here for u. Obviously we are not all the same, but when it comes to main causes we are trying to figure out, Calcium normal itvitamin d normal MagnEsium normal Copper normal tested twice Vivitamin e normal Me Not normal
  17. thanks for the reply. depending on what i have to pay out of pocket, i might still get this done for peace of mind. but of course im sure my results will prob be normal as well.
  18. have you guys looked into mast cells possibly causing inflammation? what we are dealing with seems like hypersensitivities sometimes. mast cells are everywhere. the nerves, skin, hair, gut, brain,liver. if there is something bothering the eyes due to inflammation it can cause severe dry eyes if left untreated. also i read a study that low grade brain inflammation can occur from a hypersensitive immune response what ever that may be that if also left untreated and allowed to persist for long periods of time can actually be damaging to the brain and trigger major depression. facial flushing, hair loss that alot of people get, this could be a inflammatory response. I think our gut is producing too much stomach acid, not too little. those people that say they have a metallic taste in their mouth or white coating on the back of their tongue (made worse by some probiotics that can actually increase acid production) this is probably acid reflux. those that have hypersensitive responses that mast cells may be involved in, are more prone to produce too much stomach acid. there is also the vagus nerve that may come into play based on lpr studies i read that could trigger all sorts of weird responses and could trigger the production of excess mucus. im not saying im recommending this but has anyone tried ppis like nexium and noticed it almost feels like an antidepressant and helps with anxiety? even reduced libido?(I have) ppis like nexium act as an anti-inflammatory in the gut. this is just one facet of treatment maybe for a immune system thats out of wack triggering pro inflammatory responses. ive been diagnosed witheosinophilic esophagitis and allergies. So this is what im going to treat and focus on atm. Involvement of mast cells in eosinophilic esophagitis. CONCLUSION: Herein we have identified local mastocytosis and mast cell degranulation in the esophagi of patients with EE
  19. Vitamin c definitely stimulates saliva and might also help with dry eyes. I've noticed this when taking a benadryl when I was taking vitamin c, I didn't even get any sort of dry mouth that I'm used too. Has anyone got a CT scan of their abdomen to look at the Liver, pancreas and gallbladder? Normal, abnormal results? Debating if I'm going to spend the money to get this done.
  20. I'm concerned our problems could be flat out liver problems, even if test come back with normal enzymes. And no I'm not saying mass storage of vitamin a either. Every thing could fit into some kind of liver disorder that may not be detected until it's late stage. I just read a study about lower collegen and hyaluronic concentrations due to liver disease. Altered mental status, drugs, supplements that hang around in the intestines for too long. Muscle loss, Ed, body hair loss. Nausea to the point of almost coma like. Pale skin . altered hormones, Osteoporosis. We are deficent in nothing yet still sick.
  21. Zinc deficiency alters gut bacteria makeup and function We are the first to show that zinc deficiency has a significant effect on the microbial population and diversity in the intestine
  22. Vitamin C Function in the Brain!po=7.56458 Finally recovering from that copper bs. This is kind of a funny thing to say but if an animal was given a full course treatment of Accutane. You think they'd have the same long term side effects? Like a dog or cat that had permently thinned hair, was depressed and couldn't think straight or had ed? For some reason I think not. What would be the main difference? Maybe the fact that they manufacturer their own vitamin c directly from the liver. Think of what this could effect if u had a constant supply 24 7 going right into the blood stream.
  23. – First clinical evidence of copper deficiency is anemia and/or leukopenia
  24. ok didnt expect this. pretty defencive of your most recent theory i see. Im just being open and honest with people. I dont really care how i come across. im not here for likes. im not going to get into it with you. just make sure you keep a critical mind. im not trying to lead people astray. id be the first to tell them if i think something might be doing more harm then good. theres two things either 1:we still have vitamin a stored in some secret vault that copper unlocks or B: we dont. So what is copper doing if we dont? minus the stored vitamin a theory excess copper outside the diet isnt good for anyone. so lets just keep this in mind.
