Goodbye:Taking a break

I'm taking a break and focusing on other things like singing. I need to just get away from all of this and do something of real value. I will continue to do what I do with my health, but as far as this blog and stuff I'm sick of it all.

Good luck to everyone.

Round 7: DMPS Ends! Also Another Rant

This round was a little more interesting than the others. I added in 1000mg of EDTA once in the morning. I did feel a little blah at times, but no hives so I am happy right now. I went a full 6 days and quit half way through today to give my body some rest. My minerals were definitely low a few days ago so I upped my normal doses of minerals. This made the cramping in my feet go away, but I will continue on this higher dose for a while.

We will see what happens in the next few days. Will the hives make an appearance this time around? That is the million dollar question...

Stopping Beta 1,3D Glucan

I have never had a supplement effect me so much before. Beta 1,3D Glucan is supposed to boost the immune system. I am always a little leery of things that do this, but wanted to give it a try.

Beta 1,3D Glucan is supposed to do the following:
Beta-1,3D Glucan works by activating immune cells known as macrophages, neutrophils and natural killer (NK) cells. These are your immune system’s first line of innate defense. They are responsible for finding, identifying, and consuming foreign substances in the body.  Macrophages also control the activities of other important cells in the immune system.

To maximize the benefits of Beta Glucan, you should always take it on an empty stomach. Wait at least 30 minutes before eating or drinking anything. A small amount of pure water should be used to swallow the capsule. (No coffee, tea, juice, etc.).
The amount of anxiety and revving of my system was horrific. I actually had to take a beta blocker yesterday and I'm done with this supplement now. I think I took it for about a 8 or 9 days. Whatever arm of my immune system it boosted, directly impacts my POTS and anxiety, hyper feelings. It really makes me think my POTS is autoimmune in origin.

Round 7: DMPS Begins

Today I started round 7 of DMPS. I am taking 10mg of DMPS, 3 times a day. I don't get too focused on taking it every 8 hours because I like to be able to sleep at night. Last round I also took EDTA in the morning and I am doing this again since I didn't get hives last time.
