You seem like you have the analytical attitude to work your way through this mess, a lot fail because it is too complex.
He’s absolutely right that what I’m doing is really complex. On chelation days, I’m filling 25 containers with supplements daily and it takes at least 20 minutes to do. However, I’m doing this because I have this feeling that if I just find the right combination and timing for my supplements and chelators, I might feel well and accelerate my recovery.
But, I think you could get through methylation and chelation with a much simpler protocol. I just like to tinker.
On the other hand, for those deciding on a simpler protocol with less experimentation, the trade-off might mean accepting a higher level of side effects and suffering for a longer period of time. This is the other side of the coin – those side effects probably torpedo many people’s efforts with both chelation and methylation.
This is my August calendar showing additions and increases in supplements along with chelation rounds in purple. One of the complexities that I am grappling with currently is this: the side effects I get from chelation are very similar to the ones I experience when I’m ramping up methylation.
I think that’s because ALA is an ATP support in addition to being a chelator. It feels like this double whammy is limiting my ability to chelate at higher ALA doses. I’m thinking I need to be careful not to increase any methylation supports for about two weeks preceding a chelation round.
I’m also thinking that I should take a break from chelation while I dedicate some time to increasing my folate and SAMe…
