Re: Too much curcumin not a good thing?

How about these strips for testing urinary sulfate? https://www.amazon.com/SEOH-Indicator-Sulfate-Quantofix-Analytical/dp/B0089PPE5E I’m CBS ++ (C699T). Historically I’ve had strange reactions to a range of supplements and foods, but I was never able to identify the common denominator (sulfur) until...

Re: awake for colonoscopy?

I recently had both a colonoscopy and upper endoscopy without sedation. The colonoscopy was not bad, and I would definitely do it again without anesthesia (and I don’t think I have an especially high tolerance for pain). The upper endoscopy was much worse, but I would probably do the same with that.

Re: Pregnenolone for hormone support?

Mimi, interesting post on CIRS and hormones. I have been diagnosed with CIRS and am seeing a Shoemaker trained specialist. I’m doing HRT but have really struggled with estrogen (I have a very narrow window that I have to hit in order to avoid high blood pressure and tachycardia – interesting as I’ve...

Re: WRAP - Wisconsin Registry for Alzheimer's Prevention

Vinpocetine is supposed to increase cerebral blood flow. I haven’t seen any studies that looked at this except one focusing on stroke patients (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12044859).

Re: Chronic Inflammation as a contributor to Alzheimer’s

Alysson, have you tested for MARCoNS? My numbers are very similar to yours (normal c4a, moderately elevated TGF Beta 1, and very low MSH) and I tested positive. Shoemaker and others have argued that MARCoNS can suppress c4a. I just read your post about insomnia. I wonder if it could be related to yo...

Re: Our first guest: Dr. Thomas Dayspring...

Juliegee, my THD results are quite similar to yours, Sitosterol = 4.68, Sitosterol/Cholesterol ratio = 254. At the time I was eating at least one avocado a day and lots of nuts.

Re: Mold and mycotoxins

Alysson, I hope you are able to get a definitive answer on whether or not you have a mold problem (and that it’s not an issue in your case). I think part of the reason my situation is so ambiguous is that I also have Lyme. The doctors I’ve seen (functional med and the CIRS specialist) seem to agree ...

Re: What are the diagnostic criteria for "dementia"?

Alysson, I’m not sure about the Real Time testing, whether I regret doing it. I guess I would have rather put the money toward something else, but I probably feel that way because my results were negative. If they had been positive, and my understanding is that they can be even for those who don’t s...

Re: What are the diagnostic criteria for "dementia"?

Alysson, are you referring the RealTime mycotoxin panel? I had that test done (about $700) and it was negative, even though I evidently do have a mold problem. I’ve done some reading about this and it has been suggested that people with mold sensitive HLA-DR/DQ haplotypes may not secrete mycotoxins ...

Re: New APOE4 homozygote

Nancy, thanks a lot for taking the time to find this book and for the summarizing Singleton’s argument about the need for multiple antibiotics. I’ll get a copy of the book. Can’t believe I’ve been as complacent as I have about the Lyme. I see my doctor next week and will discuss more aggressive trea...
