Re: New paper from Dr. Gundry on stopping progression of CAD

This is an interesting topic that I researched over a year before I found out about my 4/4 status. My husband (who is homozygous for the MTHFR gene variant) had a high coronary calcium score. Cardiologist wanted him on statins, but I did a lot of research on pubmed and found the studies about pomegr...

Re: Meditation

I went through TM instruction (Transcendental Meditation) some 25 years ago, think I paid hundreds of dollars at the time... and while I have not meditated on a very regular basis, I have always used this technique when I have had a bad night sleep and needed to be fit the next day. I'd meditate for...

Re: Meditation

particularly for me, 4/4 and very Type A....always on the go, I recognize that this is an important aspect of my prevention regiment.

Re: How could my homocysteine levels go up on B-complex

was the B Complex methyl? In addition to being 4/4, I also have an MTHFR defect (C677T) which impairs my methylation cycle up to 80%. My homocysteine was high (12.7) but I also brought it down to 7.2 with METHYL B Complex. If I took standard B Complex with folic acid and cyanocobalamin, my homocyste...

These stats sound horrible

Since finding out my 4/4 status earlier this year, I have been on an emotional roller coaster. While I have moments of being ok, I am deeply disturbed and freaked out by the prospect of losing my sanity and the essence of ME. The statistics I found, initially were something like 60% of APOE4 had AD ...

Astaxanthin

I have started supplementing with this as recommended in Dr. Bredesen's book. Anyone else trying it? It sounds like a very worthwhile supplement to me. Be aware that the available strengths vary.... 4mg, 12 mg......and I'm sure others. In any event, it looks to be neuro-protective and at this point,...

Re: Armour Thyroid, RT3, T3 conundrum

I have been hypothyroid for 25 years. The first 10 years, I was on Synthroid (levothyroxine) and they were the most miserable 10 years of my life. Then I found a functional medicine doctor who put me on NDT. (I use Thyroid S, from Thailand which works well for me) However, I have always had an issue...
