Quoted from Joy
Now here I am taking sugar in another form and it has decreased my craving for sweets other than the sweetness from fresh fruit.Joy

I have candy in a dish sometimes with lots of nuts for people who still want that sort of thing, but it is never a temptation to me at all - thank goodness!! Unibars are the sweetest thing I eat, by far, besides what comes off a tree or vine - fresh!!

Thanks for the advice.  I'll try and get something when I go to WFs.  The doctor said she thinks there's some carpal tunnel in there but I think I bent it back while sleeping.  It's still not 100% but I have almost full range of motion back.  Last Thurs. and Friday, I couldn't even use my fingers, could pick anything up, couldn't use my right (dominant) hand at all.  
Now I'm hopeful that my whole summer isn't ruined!  The power of BTD....

I certainly hope your summer isn't ruined because of this... I thought I was going to be hopping around like a rabbit for months after I hurt my little toe, but the recovery was simply amazing!! I can wear all my shoes, even pumps, with no problem, and I never notice any pain whatsoever - climbing ladders or whatever. I don't think I ever hurt as bad in my life from anything like that! Even when a large piece of paneling fell on top of my foot, it didn't hurt as bad. Or falling over backwards over a small wall around the garden......Or when I fell over backwards and hit a 2 inch metal pipe just an inch to the right of my spine. It still scares me to think about that one!

But in spite of all these things and many others that were similar, I never took any pain medication for them because I was able to use these creams/ointments to keep the pain down enough to live with it. One night I was in so much pain in so many different places I was afraid to use the same cream all over, so I used three different ones on separate larges areas. It worked too!

Check out Toprican cream.  It's my standby for aches and pains, injuries, etc.
http://topricincream.net/reviews.html

It's a homeopathic cream that is in all good natural food stores.

THANKS.. all..  .... well getting older -is for young people- who can deal with it.. I have no time..

As for pain in joints, if nothing takes it away after some time and always before surgery, please look at ProloTherapy and Dr C. Edward Koop, the surgeon general ..  it is all that one needs to fix joints..



  


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!

Well, apparently you have some "time" as of 3 hours ago, Goldie!! Young people can't get older because they aren't old yet!!   I think Trehalose Complex has you getting sort of sassy! Live it up, Goldie!!

The first row of 3 items are all identical-just different size containers.  That's what I use.  

The bottom row consists of one for foot problems and one for kids.  I don't buy those.

Hope it is helpful, Spring.    It's in all my local natural food stores and I've been using it for years at the first sign of joint pain.  

It seems to be most effective for acute pain, as in a twist or strained joint.  I used it a few days ago when I stubbed my toe severely.  I ran cold water on the toe for a minute, dried it and applied Toprican generously.  The next morning, the only bruising (quite purple) was a thin strip where I had neglected to spread the cream.

I've used it on chronic arthritis with some benefit, although not as fast acting in its' results. In this case, it needs to be used daily for an ongoing basis for a while, and then you notice there hasn't been any pain for a while.  

It is very good in cases where you might overuse a joint and it's very sore the next day.  The trick is to not wait too long before using the cream.

Thanks a lot, Victoria, for describing your experience with this cream! I do not like to take anything for pain at all because I have found that creams and ointments work so much better for me without any side effects. I love castor oil for a lot of things, but it is the messiest thing around!

WOW! This waxes stranger and stranger!! To go back a few years, it seemed that getting enough sleep was my biggest challenge. I was diagnosed with a mild case of sleep apnea and C-Pap helped a lot with getting more restful sleep and the panic attacks, but I still was not getting enough sleep. About half enough!! Anyway, I started taking Trehalose Complex, and I was energized to the nth for the last two months except at night when I began to sleep much better. So here is the strange part:

Even with taking more Trehalose, for the last week or so every time I have taken it I got a lot more sleepy during the day than I had been since I started taking it, and it has gradually gotten more noticeable. Also, during the week I had started taking 1/4 teaspoon of TC at night and was sleeping better than I have in years!

Well, today after I went ahead and took my morning serving of Trehalose Complex in spite of having these thoughts about the changes that were taking place, I got so sleepy I thought I was going to have to go back to bed!!! Unheard of!!! So, to continue with this experiment, I have not taken any since, and I am functioning much better than I was this time yesterday!! So tonight I am taking the plunge and having twice as much TC and see what happens!! I can hardly wait to see how this goes!!! If I am awake all night or sleep like a baby, hopefully, you will hear about it one way or the other!!  

So TC has changed my lifetime eating habit to a better one, and now I will see what it can do about my sleeping problem!!! This is so amazing!

a couple of thoughts, Spring -

You may be sleep deficient and you're now having a chance (as demanded by your body) to restore yourself in this way.  If this is the case, I have a feeling that after a while, this daytime sleepy effect will wear off.

or-
If it's really troublesome, you might take periodic breaks from TC.  Maybe on weekends or something of that sort.

I've only read snippits of this thread, but I started taking trehalose yesterday, and it seems to really be helping me lose weight (in addition to better energy and focus).

Has anybody else noticed that benefit?

There is absolutely no question that I am sleep deficient, Victoria !! But I have been sleeping better since starting the TC and, thankfully, as today has worn on, I'm getting less and less sleepy because of that.

This really isn't troublesome at all because I am very excited about this new turn of events!!! I think TC might even work better for me at night for more reasons than helping me sleep. Anyway, time will tell!

Melissa, we have been screaming about the clarity and energy for months!! We haven't been able to shut up about it! But this sleepiness in the day time is new, so I'm pretty excited about getting my sleep disorder worked out by taking TC in the evening.

Not in one day for certain.. are you taking TC or plain?  I am currently on a very rigid pattern of what I eat, (I wish to drop weight,) and I am still taking TC every morning and afternoon.  I get energy from it.   It also helps, in my case where there is not much food early in the day (against normal BTD)  to make me feel as if I had some food, to satisfy my belly.  It works in minutes to settle my stomach down.  

I am currently taking a gulp of Milk of Magnesia, to settle my muscles down before they act up and give me neck and head pain.  It is making me slightly nauseas, so the spoon of TC helps a lot.  

If this magnesium regiment works further against my headaches, I will continue, but I would very much like to switch to foods that will have enough Magnesium in them, but for the next few weeks that is out of the question.  At least TC settled my issues down enough to afford me choices.. by having reduced my headaches to near none.. and making me aware of the muscle tension - causing the headaches- showing me that magnesium helps to prevent the muscle cramps. TC helped to stop the cycle, to show me that I needed additional Magnesium.. Unknown to me before!

How are you seeing weight loss in you?

I was high as a kite after less than a day when I first started taking TC, and I dropped about two pounds in two days! TC was getting rid of stuff!

Read elsewhere. Imagine this!?:

I would like to direct you to a minireview from Dr. Higashiama, a research team leader at the trehalose manufacturer Hayashibara Co. Some important practical applications are discussed in detail:

“In this application, we examined the suppressive effect of trehalose on human body odor. The typical odor of a senior layer (odor from seniors) increases with age, especially 55 years or older. This odor contains unsaturated aldehydes such as 2-nonenal and 2-octenal. These aldehydes are produced by the degradation of unsaturated fatty acid (palmitoleic acid) in aged people’s skin. The subjects (55 years or older) were selected from our company. After a shower, their body was sprayed with a 2 % trehalose solution. They put on new underwear after the spray. Twenty hours later, the unsaturated aldehydes were sampled from the used underwear shown in this system using DNPH-column. The trapped aldehydes were eluted from this column and were analyzed by gas chromatography. The results showed a decrease of about 70 % in odor from seniors due to the action of trehalose (Fig. 7). This result indicates that trehalose has a suppressive effect on the formation of the odor released by the seniors’ bodies. The same results came out with the oxidation of fatty acid. Therefore, the application of trehalose for cosmetic fields is expected.”

T. Higashiama: Pure and Applied Chemistry 74, 1263–1269

Yes, Victoria, I took one-half teaspoon last night, and my regular servings today. I have felt wonderful! And the amazing thing is that this is in spite of my right knee giving me problems yesterday evening and last night! I had been getting up and down off a stool near the floor working on my foyer project and twisted it somehow when I was getting up - one time too many! Anyway, it is fine today.

Had you seen the article before about body odor that I posted? If we were around people with this sort of problem, we could mix up Trehalose in a spray bottle with water and give them a nice, harmless spray! I am not, so I can't give this a try to see if it works. One of my sons used to have problems with foot odor when he wore his running shoes, but I haven't asked him lately if he is still bothered with it. I will suggest it to him if he is.

Yes, I read that article a few weeks ago and it's very impressive.

Cute idea about running around spraying all the senior citizens you see!  lol!    (but I think this only works when consumed internally!)

No, Victoria, they were spraying it on their bodies!! But I can't help but think that it would help the problem taking it internally too! I wouldn't put anything past this stuff at this point! It would appear that putting it into a lotion would work too. I can just see some sort of deodorant formulated with Trehalose added.......
