I wish you the best Goldie.  You have a positive attitude, that is important.  Keep your brain active to develop new neurons.

I am curious about tasting 7 items as a test for Alzheimer’s.  I tied to Google it, but couldn’t find the list.

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!

NOW why today did I not get a headache?? I did nothing either way.. good bad or different.. so why?

what is it about muscles/nerves being miserable some times and others not at all.

Dr D: eight or more loops (ulnar) in your finger prints correlate with Alzheimers' risk. I have all 10! So have you checked your finger prints? All forgetting is not Alzs. I also read once that low serum HDL, high triglycerides also correlate with Alz, and my conditions match these. I found three advices for Alz prone persons:

1. Regular walking (best form of physical exercise)
2. Some brain teasing puzzles (mental exercise)
3. Nutritous food (for brain tissues)

Kumar..  I have 9 loops! and all the rest yopu are talking about .. BUT THAT
is not my concern here!!!  I am really pointing out that the NEUROPATHY is the
first show of something wrong!.. something needing attention and needing to be
fixed.

MY intestines where on issue from the start, and no one did anything about it.  
you can skip to the end few sentences in the next post ... if you wish.. )

Part 1 of 2 ...

Quoted Text
Andrea:   Sounds like gastroparesis.  


[/color> Ohhhhh, I had about 168 x-ray taken of my stomach by age 30.. but no one knew
what to do!! finally at 32 my stomach PAINS went away after I stopped eating
milk.. and that was a good thing.  I used to be  doubled over, and only going to
be horizontal helped!  but NO ONE DID anything about that either.  NOW I KNOW
since a day or so that just because I did not have pain any more, my intestinal
tract still was not MAGICALLY fixed to perfection.  DR D. was on to something
later, but not just .. stopping the dairy... but also suggesting some healing
sups - but he came many years later.. and I felt fine compared to my early
years. I was regular and all was well inside.  OR WAS I... not really.. but..

For about 20 years I was on many over the counter painkiller pills for neck
pain that I treated with every kind of doctor method and exercise and weight
training.. I was in agony from on accident.. I took the pills I need.  not heavy
stuff I sayed away from that but I am one of those who took more then 9000
Tylenol's.. so my kidneys will be on issue some day.  and no one did anything
about that either.. they did not know how.. and except for DrD no one ever
considered the effect on my intestines.. some of the early years before Tylenol
contained much caffeine, so again DrD was concerned in the right places.. but he
was not around yet.. and I functioned enough to work to have insurance for MD's
and money to use for alternatives.. Much money as I spent it all on trying to
get better.. finally acupuncture helped me to get over the worst pain.. and I
found that MANGANESE in Ligaplex ll  helped me with the rest of the pain.   I
took hundreds of them, but at least they helped me in a non caffeine way!! (
until I crashhhhhhed from the lack of caffeine-- I suffered for weeks --
wondering if I was never going to stop crying.. LIFE was good - I had the best
time socially for that period - so at least I could make it through until "I"
discovered that it was the dramatic cut in caffeinated pills that caused my over
active crying screaming nervus sensitivity problems.  ONCE "I" figured it out
the cure was simple.. and no one even thought of my intestines.  

By the time I was 52 .. I had read all the books on the subject before to and
did some things after "I" got pneumonia.. in the olden days I would have been
dead long ago, but the pneumonia was a wake up call, so I decided to treat my
intestines to a cleans - I was diligent and serious, I was going to wash out all
the bad left over bacteria out of my body according to the great books by Dr
Bernard Jensen-- his advice saved some of me.. ..but still I did not focus on my
intestens as I had done all the cleanses and had added all the supps suggested..
I was diligently making fresh juices no matter the cost... but when I was
getting ever more supps suggested by my alternative care giver I became weary
and tired of the cost and the taste..

And then entered Dr. D with all his books.  I read them, and I knew he was
right from the first to the last pages.. but I never read I MUST!!!! put stuff
into me to HEAL my gut.   Oh yes he mentions it every where, but I never made
the connection.  I was in the throws of menopause, with hot flashes and all the
rest, becoming a widow and losing my job.. I had no idea on why I should bother
with my intestines -- "I" was regular andf that at least was working.. I did
have some issues with dryness, but with a little help that was dealt with easy.  
It did bother me, as my mom had developed her 3rd and 4th cancer, all
independent of each other.. over 35 years she had uterin, then bladder, then
anal, an finally colon cancer.. all dealt with ny cutting it out.. .. but by now
it was clear that I did not have her genes.. I was doomed to get diabetes
instead.. With Dr D "I" pushed that condition out a long way.. 15 years in
fact.. and still no one dealt with my intestines for the right reasons.. I did
not tone in to ME enough, after all by now I was functioning ok .. or was "I"??

Then came GENO, the handsome guy with all sorts of new advice, new discoveries
and again PERMISSION to llok at ME and make me most important.. I went on the
new diet and hell broke lose.. I was no facing diabetes.. I hate it and I fight
for and against it.. but no one dealt with my intestines.. and by now I have
some soft hard or diuretic issues .. but I am still regular.. so all is well?  
NO.. but "I" did nothing about it.

Comes a few days ago when I started the post about early  NEUROPATHY as a sign
of all sorts of problems.. first I centered it around diabetes as a symptom then
I deducted that it will eefect my propensity for Alzheimers,  and the wheels
where turning and finally "I" developed issues with swallowing supplements
(again many of them - meds and the sups from DPN)  and then in the other thread
about 'swallowing' Andrea the nurse suggested that I have a condition.. about
which I knew nothing but when I read about it, I am certain I had something like
it all MY life.  

The one certain thing I had all my life was NERVE- MUSCLE-  COMMUNICATION
pain.. first in my belly the in my neck and back and always in my intestines.  
all my pill taking, and all my early stomach pains had numbed my intestines.. to
the point where I always had a biger  belly..  and finally as of  about 5 years
ago, my upper stomach also distended -.so no waist. and I HAVE NO idea what
stomach muscles feel like.. after all I am leaving sleeping dogs right where
they are.. until today!!

Over night "I" was mulling over all that I read.. and now I know why I have a
big over the waist bulge.. and now I know why.. my intestines are not
functioning as they should.. and no one has done anything about it.. what with
all my history -- I was doing fine?? NOT!  but no one knew what to do about it.

...... EXCEPT Dr D.. he kept nagging at fixing the insides, the gen stuff, the
loops on the fingers, the long term stuff, and his words HERE make all the
difference.. he keeps it up, he is unrelenting, he keeps educating and expanding
and he suggests and suggests again and again.. FIX your DESTINY!!!! Dr D knew!

So here I am making a long post.. and starting to do something aboput it.  
Maybe it was Andrea , or it was my thinking about nerve damage- in the legs - in
the neck- in the brain- in the heart muscles- and finally my newest
CONNECTION---- IN MY INTESTINES !!.. POLY-NEUROPATHY is every where.. poly means
all over.. so the intestines are also included..  No wonder I can not swallow
correctly, no wonder I can be stuffed and hungry at the same time, no wonder I
can have hard excrements and diarrhea right after.. no wonder! I can be afraid
of food or hunger at the same time.. MY BODY KNEW all along.. my brain is coming
along slowly!



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!

Part 2 of 2  

Quoted Text
Andrea:  Sounds like gastroparesis.


Today!.. Today is a new day..  and I don't know where I am ending up, but I am starting
to do some things hoping to be right.. I am going to continue my supps as
advised to swallow per Geminisue and others.. thanks, and  I am going to (at
least try) to do a liquid diet, to give my intestines some rest.

During the day I will use the Protein Powder from Dr D and use the many cups
of vegetables suggested by Swami and juice them and drink my veggies as I have
suggested many times.. I will eat dinner as always.. and 2 servings of whole
fruit.

And after I am done with that and the sups for weight loss in a month or so,
then I will see and know much more then even today.. I will read SERIOUSLY again
all there is to read in the Encyclopedia and learn what sups to take next.  IF I  
am lucky as I think I am enormously..I will do well and not suffer to many
headaches.. (another nerve pain!)  and I will lose weight, and my intestines
will heal.. I have a 5 week plan.. and my new food chart will help me to stay on
track.. I love it.. and all who helped me along the way 16 years ago when I made
my first years of postings and now when my computer allowed me to come back..
(it kept throwing me out for 5 years ))  but now I am here again with Swami, YOU
ALL and DrD's words and DPN supps finally fixing my intestines AND my internals
/ my nerves head to towes - and by doing so, I might some day be able to:  
CHANGE MY DESTINY...


If you read this far who ever you are .. I hope you learned something.. but I
am grateful no matter what.. IT WAS YOU ALL that brought me here.. immmmmagine
LOOPS all the way from NEPAL.. (I knew Hillary in person long ago.. ) the world
is a small place!..

always check the correlation on loops and GT

whorls in an A GT will not have the same outcome as on an O GT, and so on....

I have decided that I would do DPN protocols one after the other and then see which one is the best- and should know in a year or so what is what.  Right now I am on like 10 things.. enough for my taste as I get overwhelmed quick enough and then I can not take any sups for a while..

I think I want to concentrate on the MOTILITY, filling and emptying my stomach and the intestines to the point where I will 'feel' them which I never have.  I had two states of being.. stuffed or hungry/ and no wonder as I am hypoglycemic  at all times.

Yet  I am looking at the nerve issues as the most important as Neuropathy is something that is all over the body.. it controls the fluids and the stagnations resulting from poor circulations with nerves fiering at odd times and not at others... I think neropathy is way over looked...

My sups..regimen

Bladderwrack 1a day for metabolic support.. good for me or not.. It's on the list, so it better be good for me!!!! and you all said it was good.. haha


OK currently I am taking the weight loss sups.. and then I added others as I went on.. I am doing it for 2 month.. then I will change what needs to be changed.. I DO hope that one of them will stop my near daily 5 hour headache..

Today I decided that I could 'afford' to go on a liquid diet in part.. in the EXPECTATION that I will move the scale, that I will shake up my innards and make a difference of some sort.. so I am doing protein drink all day and supper, meat and vegetables early.. plus  


Bladderwrack 1a day for metabolic support.. good for me or not.. It's on the list so it better be good for me!!!! and you all said it was good.. haha

Quercetic.. 2 at night on Anti Oxident on empty stomach.
Bromelain 4 x day for Inflammatary Digestive issues started today.
Deflect 2 a day for Lectin Blocking
Gastro D complex 2x2 for Stomach  support for Avoids.

=Catalyst 1 a day for Genotrophic support for Gatherers =
=Glycosia 1 each L & D Blood Sugar levels  = one of the last two lets me SLEEP all NIGHT!!!


Genomas a few left over from before..1 a day  to balance the immune system
Attentia leftover from before 1x2 a day for my brain..

protein powder in warm water its ok
and if I could swallow it the Harmonia..way to fishy.. I will give it away..

=== I am not certain that anything is going to matter, but for now it's what I am taking.. and the Acid reflux is better and I sleep properly!!!!!!!!

OK!  I am hoping that all that will make HUGE difference.. and for a while I will do this 'suplement crazyness'.. and at some point I will run out of cash.. that will be the day when I am going to eat and use food as my medicines.. again.  (In fact I cancelled my Dr D apointment in favor of taking the sups.. its a choice for now..)

THYROID or not, I dont know, but I am taking the FUCUS and HOLD MY NOSE because of FISH smell.. and I am being polite..  

Monthly, I do the Iodine test on my upper arm, and seem to be ok even though I eat no fish and only sea salt (minus the iodine added),

Weekly I take weekly the 5HTP for hormone balancing and that has helped me to have COURRAGE to do what I need to do.. like deciding to do this == not less nor more.. (for now)  wish me luck..

I typed this as much for you as for me.. and let me say in the Neuropathy Diabetes Brain connection thread I typed the whole story of why I think I need this.. for now I am married to it.. haha

Lola Thanks.. but I am here I am looking for another quick fix in this thread, but really take a look at Neropathy, its results in brain damage and now sleep... its conditions and CAUSES..

One of the signs for alzheimers is poor sleep, this intrgues me now more then ever.  I no longer accept that menopause issues alone cause that.. I want to know more.. because...

I am NOW convinced that one of these two have CAUSED me to sleep all night for the 6th day.. I have never done that since I was a young woman..

Quoted Text
=Catalyst 1 a day for Genotrophic support for Gatherers =
=Glycosia 1 each L & D Blood Sugar levels  = one of the last two lets me SLEEP all NIGHT!!!


I dont even care which one does what, or for now what is in them..  I know that something workes, because today I woke up feeling as if my MUSCLES are not being held up by stff nerves.. It's a wierd feeling.. If I had to describe it it would be as if I am jelly holding together but having no central core.. I feel so relaxed.. like I let go of a hundred sharp nails no longer threatening me... wierd..

I am just as before in this thread convinced that neuropathy has plagued me ever since I had on accident at age 27.  I suffered pain and all sorts of issues, could write another 2 pages on that, but have done so before, but here I AM now addressing the nerve issues as if that was a big discovery. The discovery that the nerves are responsible for having woken me up or kept me awake for years.. to where I thought that is how life is..

I am out on a linmb here, but I have seen Neuropothy make people not be able to sit or stand quetly or for that matter stay in bed .. I hav eseen the people suffer and all sorts of things going wrong because the organs where either drowning in their fluids or kept stagnant and unable to discharge the energy it takes to mak ethem work,  like I said I am on a limb here, but not from where I sit.  I know that if a oragn can be activated to do what it is supposed to do then it will do it to a large degree.  BUt if the organ is helped to drain itself, and nothing added to RESTORE then nothing really has changed..

I am going to continue on this thread later, but for now I know that I am on to something here and the sleep pattern shows it.  I have not felt compelled to get up or turn on tv for the noise to lull me back to sleep in 6 nights.. something has changed..

The indigestion, the dmage done to nerves by sugar issues, or neropathy that makes a person feel restless all night, something is different..

Well, if your blood sugar drops too low at night while you sleep, my understanding is that the adrenals might release some cortisol to circulate some glucose.  But that can stimulate you and cause you to wake up.

I wish I had time right now to read every post in this thread thoroughly.  I'm scheduled for a nerve conduction test tomorrow to figure out why my hands and fingers are losing sensation.  I've questioned my doctor about blood sugar and reported cravings, but there's no response to that, except that my fasting blood test has blood sugar in the normal range.  I really wonder what my blood sugar does right after I eat.  I'm tempted to find a cheap used monitor and test myself for a while.

Then there was that time on a Valentine's Day that I ate a huge amount of chocolate.  Later that night, when I went outside with the dog, I had vision trouble.  Everything appeared veiled, as if I was looking at everything through cheesecloth.


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

there are others here who know more about the effects of low sugar then I would know about..

but the neuropath I know about is of a different evaluation.. I am maintaining for now that while indeed the nerves in hands and feet are the earliest 'signs' of diabetes..  they are also possible damage in the brain, by loosing their effectiveness and therefore affect the brain as well.. I am less aware of thinking issues per se- but the other day I deffinitly could not remember a Noun.. and its nouns that show the loss of brain ability.. again I am just presuming this as I have no one to agree with this - so far- BUT I am absolutely convinced that protecting, repairing our nerve pathways is way more important.. even the loss of feeling is only a symptom. The question is what can one do for nerves.. YES they have pills but will the pills repair or just deal with the results.. or could we take supps that would heal all the components of what surrounds them..

I toook the nerve test and they cinfirmed some damage.. but the answer was a pill ..and keeping sugar in check.. In the end of the day it seems the to low something  ?glucose? is dangerous, and to high does damage.. but that is simplistic..  as is this thread, but I have never pain on my head on the outside every day with a fierce headache for 5 hours and then it goes away.. food and sugar and the like don't matter.. I can get it any time but most often it is syclical every 24 hours with painkillers or not..

I look forward to seeing you here so we can hash this out..

Gatherer Catalyst Strategy:

    * Magnolia Extract: Magnolia bark (Magnolia officinalis) is a traditional Chinese medicine that has been used for thousands of years to treat "stagnation of qi" (low energy), help ease digestion, and support emotional well-being. Our Magnolia Extract is a standardized herbal extract made from the bark of the Magnolia officinalis tree. Research has indicated that magnolia extract has a calming effect and helps reduce occasional tension in part by binding to adenosine and GABA receptors. In addition, animal studies suggest that magnolia extract may promote positive mood and calm occasional physical and emotional stress. because of its cortisol modulating effects, Magnolia may help with contolling binge eating when stressed.

    * Alpha Lipoic Acid: Lipoic Acid is found inside every cell of the body, where it helps generate the energy that keeps us alive and functioning. Lipoic acid is a key part of the metabolic machinery that turns glucose (blood sugar) into energy for the body's needs. Lipoic acid is an antioxidant, which means that it neutralizes naturally occurring but harmful chemicals known as free radicals.

    * Methylcobalamin:This is the 'biologically active' form of vitamin B12. Methylcobalamine helps promote proper nerve function, helps strengthen the blood, and enhances DNA repair (methylation).

    * Iodine: Iodine from kelp (Fucus vesiculosis) helps normlize the thyroid and enhance the metabolism. Many “kelp” and “bladder wrack” supplements are not Fucus vesiculosis, and are not as effective. Fucus blocks many lectins from attaching to the body's cells. Our Fucus product is the highest quality, organic, freeze dried, and unlike the tinctures, high in fucose.

Quoted from Lola
lecithin has choline


It's easy to add a spoonful of lecithin everyday, no need to swallow more pills.

*****************

Support of Nervous System Activity

Choline is a key component of acetylcholine, a messenger molecule found in the nervous system. Acetylcholine, also called a neurotrasmitter since it carries messages from and to nerves, is the body's primary chemical means of sending messages between nerves and muscles. Because of its role in nerve-muscle function, choline (supplemented in the form of lecithin, or phosphatidylcholine), has been used experimentally to help improve neuromuscular function in Alzheimer's disease.

Maintenance of Cell Membrane Integrity

Choline is a key component of many fat-containing structures in cell membranes. Since cell membranes are almost entirely composed of fats, the membranes' flexibility and integrity depend on adequate supplies of choline. Membrane structures that require choline include phosphatidylcholine and sphingomyelin. In the brain, these fat-like molecules account for an unusually high percentage of total solids, so choline is particularly important for brain health, and its potential for use in brain disorders is great.

Goldie, you can always rotate different supplements, just to keep it all manageable.
