Re: Important information I discovered about supplements

Is there anyone else out there, who has one or two copies of ApoE4 who has experienced the same or similar issues with diet/supplement related LDL and/or triglyceride volatility? Hello I have been “experimenting” on myself and learned through trial and error on several supplements. My cholesterol h...

Re: I need help with selenium toxicity !!

Thank you everybody! This helps. I hope at least anyone that reads this will know to watch how much selenium they are supplementing or eating. I don’t think it should be allowed to have 400mcg in a recommended dosage of a multi. I was probably teetering on overdosage for years and then did the Brazi...

Re: I need help with selenium toxicity !!

Masterjohn and dr Weil suggest antioxidants to ease the symptoms of overdose and to protect from damage. The veterinary sites say to increase the toxins to remove the selenium and to increase the sulfur amino acids. I just don’t know how this works knowing about the genetic aspects. I’m wondering ab...

Re: I need help with selenium toxicity !!

Thanks everybody I don’t think I can really do anything but wait it out. I tried the last two days of cutting out my methylated b’sand bioflavonoids. I almost couldn’t function. I felt very drained and like I was coming down with something. The metal garlic taste became more pronounced. My nails are...

Re: I need help with selenium toxicity !!

Than you Floramaria I feel you understand my predicament. Unfortunately Chris Masterjohn doesn’t really outline any solutions to get rid of excess selenium. He talks about deficiency of selenium a lot and not in any understandable way at that. He does say there needs to be more research on getting r...

Does this mean I should stop my methylated b complex and sunflower lecithin ? to open up pathways or Continue Also the links I c...

Re: I need help with selenium toxicity !!

Thank you I will see if I can find anything else he has on this. This was one short answer that says to get more methylation to rid the selenium. This goes along with my theory that I need to let the selenium do the methylation instead of methylfolate and phosphatidylcholine. My homocysteine might g...

I need help with selenium toxicity !!

This may seem far fetched and you’ll have to bear with me. First my symptoms started a month or two ago which was first I noticed vertical ridges on finger and toe nails. Then my hair started getting thinner. I used to have really thick hair but now it is half gone. I had fatigue to the point that I...
