Quoted from Ribbit
That's right, Isa.  So many personality books talk about "strengths" and "weaknesses" and how to overcome those "weaknesses".  After reading about MBTI, I realize they are not weaknesses but simply the way we are.  It's nothing to "get over" or "work through".  It's just the way it is, and each difference should be acknowledged and celebrated as individuality rather than trying to hammer somebody into a little mold that we created.


Amen Ribbit!!!




If you keep doing what you've always done, and you keep getting what you've aways got, perhaps it's time for a change...

I just put this in the Dream thread, but I thought I'd stick it here as well:


Azzap, I have learned two new things recently.  First, I'm thinking I have bad dreams when I sleep on my back because when I lay on my back it hurts.  Either my back or hips hurt and often my left arm falls asleep (our mattress is WAY too firm).  I think my mind in dream-state tries to figure out a reason for the physical pain, and it makes up some dramatic or traumatic reason that I'm in pain in that position.  Maybe.

Secondly, if you'll go read the thread about Nonnies and Time (edited: it might be the ADD thread where we were talking about it), you'll see that Paul Clucas has been telling us about the Tomatis listening therapy. I've been doing some research and I believe I physically feel sound waves.  It puts me in a hyper-sensitive state and on guard at all times.  At the moment I'm wearing ear phones that my husband unearthed from the basement.  It keeps the children's clatter down to a dull roar. And I can vacuum now without feeling like I want to scream.  When I go outside everything vanishes.  When I'm inside, I'm constantly bombarded (repeatedly, since they bounce) with soundwaves and it turns my body into a drum.

I wonder if my strange, vivid dreams are just tied in with whatever's going on with my ears.  We are seeing if we can get insurance to cover some of the cost of this listening therapy.  I bet it will affect my dreams as well.

It is called bone conduction.  As opposed to air conduction.  The second level of hearing.

Bone conduction is how the profoundly deaf "hear" symphonies underwater.  Head phones and bone conductors (an un padded phone that vibrates your skull directly) are necessary tools for Tomatis's therapy.

Ribbit.. Azzap, I have learned two new things recently.  First, I'm thinking I have bad dreams when I sleep on my back because when I lay on my back it hurts.  Either my back or hips hurt and often my left arm falls asleep (our mattress is WAY too firm).


YOUR mattress is killing your neck.. buy a soft foam cushion for now and use it at least on you're side of the bed.. the NECK is what could be causing all your issues.. the back and neck are connected..like on S shape.. if the top is stressed the bottom will give.. going so far as if the S is not corrected then the knee will tear.. please look at my signature..

please if you can get rid of the mattress I had to do it.. no need for firm .. but the blue foam or a slice of memory foam works.. I don't like memory foam beds too much over the top and heavy.. a killer for the back.. but a 1 inch slice is ok ..


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

Pesticides are designed to kill small organisms with almost no immune capability.  It is no wonder that intestinal flora are killed by such.  Pesticides particularly build up in Explorers.  The question is “Are Explorers more prone to ADHD with absolutely no contact with pesticides?”

Intriguing idea about the gut flora. Sounds like the same thing with overprescribed antibiotics and MRSA.

I have heard that a lot of the soils are lifeless because of this reason. Kill the bad stuff, kill all the good stuff too.

The ecosystem is out of balance. Farmers are getting herbicide superresistant nasty weeds.They have a nasty variety of pigweed plaguing the soybean and corn fields for this reason. Finding they have to remove manually or burn (I think that's what they said). This is probably part of the reason for the Round Up ready GMO's.

I even read something the other day about resveratrol only being produced in organic grapes because it is a natural protection for the plant that doesn't occur when the plants are sprayed with chemicals.

The intelligence given to even the plants blows my mind. IMHO we would probably be better off looking for ways to harness it as it is rather than interfere with it by altering the genes.

Again, what are the long term consequences?

I guess it's ok to hijack an ADHD post a little bit.

High doses of B12 gets rid of my ADD.  When I have enough, I'm a normal person who doesn't have any symptoms whatsoever.  As the B12 wears off, my brain is the first to go and then my body follows.  It makes me wonder how many years I've been deficient.  I'm guessing most of my life.

This is tempting me to forget about my remedial therapy and just rely on B12 injections.

If it did not just seem like succumbing to a Ritalin alternative (with no adverse side-effects hopefully!) I would be comfortable with B12 injections and working to improve B12 absorption.

Yeah, it seems like a not-so-perfect temporary fix until I figure out what to do.

My father, who is a successful entrepreneur and businessman, told me that he received B12 shots from a nurse.  He says the nutritional boost was the reason why his hair did not turn grey, (and still hasn't completely)  Since he past retirement age more than a few years ago, this little tidbit about B12 shots is one that I thought I would pass on.

If he got tested, I would expect to find that he is a non-secreting A Explorer.

I have ADHD. I was on Adderall. I liked Adderall alot. I loved how it killed almost all of my appetite. I never felt anger when I was on it. It was wonderful.

It made all of my thoughts visual. I could see, like a transparency, an abstract visualization of nearly all of my thoughts.  What was cool was this "parallel processor" was controlled by my subconscious. It anticipated with the answers my conscious mind was attempting to form. Like I was trying to imagine the effect of gravity on curved space, and my subconscious was presenting me with visualizations of the geometry - presenting them to me, like it was waiting for me to catch up.

What I did not like was how rational and even scientific it made me. All I could do was think about physics or economics while I was on it.

It made it very difficult to write. I was so rational I could not access my vocabulary. It made me so focused on science I could not smile to people. I was always very serious. So I switched to Ritalin. Ritalin made me very social. I was like a talk show host on it. It made me salient of every sensation. It would be great to go hunting on Ritalin.

I have no real need for these things now.

I began to use the hormone Pregnenolone and a dose of Acetyle L-Carnitine on the side. Pregnenolone is a hormone that helps brain tissue repair itself. I did not like its effect at first, but I kept up with it for a month and all of my ADHD symptoms disappeared. I stopped taking the Pregnenolone and yet I am still ADHD free. I re-grew my brain.

I do not know if that would work on others. Pregnenolone turns into Progesterone. As a guy, that could be bad, but I did not notice much "female" like traits emerge when I was on it. My reflexes improved on it as well.

Take it with the Carnitine. Carnitine helps with nerve tissue health as well.

If you can do the permanent re-wiring of the brain with drugs rather than the Tomatis Therapy ...  

Jared, did you notice a mental boost as you took the Pregnenolone + Acetyle L-Carnitine?  Were you working or studying at the time?

No mental boost. I had much quicker reflexes. It was not like a stimulant. Make sure it is the Acetyl-L-Carnitine, as the regular L-Carnitine does not pass through the blood brain barrier. I was also taking a Biotin pill.

Carnitine competes with Carnosine, they are antagonists. I took Acetyl-L-Carnitine with Biotin and Pregnenolone in the morning, more ALC in the afternoon, and then I also took Carnosine at night. Carnosine is also neuroprotective, removing glycation products from the Brain, as well as ammonia. Carnosine is a bit expensive, but worth it.

It changes you mental perspective but not at all like Ritian. I felt hmm.. how should I say it? - I felt competent. I felt ready. I did not feel stimulated.

Jared, I would say that quicker reflexes are a sign of better neurological efficiency.  A boost unlike those given by stimulants.

When I was taking the Tomatis Listening Therapy, I became more co-ordinated by the end of the program.  My elementary school grades also jumped up.  Achieving better listening capability in the program is the measure of changing over to using more efficient neurological pathways.  Both were the central goal for Tomatis.  Listening was both the metric and therapeutic focus.

Did you discover this method of treatment, or were you given direction of some sort?

I discovered it on my own. When I first tried Pregnenolone on a whim back in 2008, I noticed it made me think differently, in a manner I did not like. I really loved my ADD way of thinking, but this hormone seemed to replace it with a feeling like I was in Sunday School. I stopped taking it. Then about a year later I decided to try it again. The "Sunday school feeling" was less intense. I figured I would put up with it.

(The reason I was interested in Pregnenolone was that it was shown to improve concentration in pilots, in a test made in WWII.)

I also ordered some Acetyl-L-Carnitine at the same time. I wanted to try it for energy. The combination of the two really sharpened my reflexes. It radically improved my driving (a task similar to flying) - in fact, it seemed to help in two ways. It gave me a better sense of direction, better memory of where I am in relation to other things - and it made me see and understand the motions of things better (where they are, where are they going) I was more aware of my own body's place in the world.

The effect on the reflexes was temporary, but I have not had any ADD like symptoms since then. The thing is, I always loved my special ADD way of thinking. I still have what I loved of my thoughts (the ability to see the inner-connections between things) but without the sudden scattering of my efforts along 200 digressions. I have more control over my thoughts yet I am still me.
