[A] little background first, I’ve been really ill for around 13 years. After identifying the problem as heavy metal toxicity, I spent a year and a half doing chelation and methylation treatments. My expected recovery did not materialize however – I experience some improvements but became sicker in other ways. I think this is because […]

Closed for repairs
[M]y wife asked me why I was so serious this morning — which reminded me this happens whenever I’m increasing my methylation supplements (added 2oo mcg metafolin today). I get serious and I stop talking because my brain is fogged up and simple things require much more effort. On the days I’m ramping up methylation, […]
I took a nap yesterday… after breakfast!
[I] can’t ever recall taking a nap after breakfast before yesterday. Sure, I’ve done it after having insomnia but last night I slept and still needed a nap after breakfast. I also took a nap after lunch and still felt like I had been run over until about 7:00 PM. Here’s what happened – I […]

Here’s what happens to me: When I am not increasing dose, on Monday I’m often very unusually active because the […]

Everything because, getting started is the most important step of all and I’d guess the first 10 rounds might be the hardest because I’m learning by trial and error as we […]
Healing or stumbling around in the dark?
[I]’ve been in troubleshooting mode since Thursday when I bumped up my methylation supplements to 5 mg B-12 and 4 mg folate. For the first time, I also took all of my folate and B12 right after breakfast instead of spreading it out over the day. My energy was great for a three-hour meeting and […]
Fish oil insomnia… again
Fish oil is supposed to be the healthiest substance on the planet, so I keep trying it. It keeps defeating me. From Monday to Thursday I had 267 mg of omega-3 fish oil before I was hit with insomnia. I was drifting in and out from 11PM to 1 AM, took some GABA and finally […]
