Sooo.... Nattokinase is about the most relieving thing in the world to me.

If I eat a little too much, or even normal amounts, just depends on the day, I get a beating chest that's uncomfortable. Nattokinase can relieve that and let my whole body relax. I can feel tension, pain, inflammation, fade away. It let's me get normal sleep.

Also if I have one glass of red wine, it's pretty much a gurantee I won't be able to sleep all night. Crazy thing is, Nattokinase fixes that too. I literally don't sleep for entire nights, somewhat regularly.

Perhaps I need to hit up the pantothenic acid again. I thought Miso was helping for like a day, because the chinese version helps you make vitamin K...

I'm under the impression my bad blood flow causes my hairloss, lack of sleep, never ending cycle of issues with testical/bladder/prostate (and infection), bad digestion too.

My weak digestion means I'm short on protien and constipated. I bought some HCL again because even if I shouldn't need it, I don't think being constipated is good.

I don't understand why I have this congestive heart failure issue. The only thing I know that helps is significantly more intense exercise than is recommended. It can make me feel bad, but if I do it intense enough I get chest pain as the build up very forcibly moves. It hurts but I feel better after. If I go super hard, I've experienced great relief after. But dehydration and stress are an issue with that. It's like I lose if I do, and lose if I don't.

I got some hawthorn berry to take, it always helps some. Dr D said resveratrol  would be better but it doesn't do anything for me (like verbally told me).

My system is certainly over all slightly better in general. I go through small phases of thinking maybe I'm a lot better, but then all of a sudden flop, the body is utterly failing again. Like the miso made me feel awesome for like two days, now I'm wondering wtf is going on, and thinking I'm going to welcome a heart attack once I hit that mid-life wall... I'm already not healthy enough to date. My state of being is unpredictable. Sometimes because of it I'll be working 10-14 hour days zero sleep.

Btw, one time I tried a muscle relaxer, I was awake all night, felt like I could die.... Melatonin can make me wide awake. Dr D said 3mg of it, St. John's wort, and Valerian, is blood type A magic sleep but... again never worked for me, presumably partial to heart congestion...

Oh ya, years ago when I ate too much, not as well, I had a blood clot removed on the bottom of my foot.

Funny, even when I ate poorly, in all sorts of ways, I remember all the good sleep, how I'd get tired like a normal person...

Oh ya the last few days as the insomnia wears down and I fall asleep/go to work, I've been feeling some viscous vein action. Just in forearms mostly... I can see them, but I feel them and have to ignore it as best as possible because it seriously is such a weird feeling it makes me want to oull them out / vomit /  vomit from thinking about pulling them out.

have you been tested for clotting disorders? or for the MTHFR mutation? It seems to me that there is something bigger going on for you... if you do have an MTHFR mutation, it can seriously affect the way that your detox and mathylation pathways work and it has been linked to clotting issues. If you do have MTHFR, The advantage to eating right is that you have already eliminated a lot of the stuff that causes issues, now it is just a matter of getting the right supplements/vitamins into you.

I'm going to try some bio-active vitamins. I found one that has basically everything on sale yesterday. I feel it big time when I take them.

Maybe I can do 23&me later.

Note: 23 & Me currently provides no health info (only ancestry information).


You can extract the 23 & Me data from their site and run it through other software to try to make some conjectures about health issues.

I think I'm going to do the 23 & me thing just to see what it's all about

it was worth it for me.

It helped me determine a few factors with regard to the clotting issue i have going on (that the doctor i was seeing for it deemed unnecessary) and i also learned that i have a reduced ability to effectively use plavix and other related drugs. It also confirmed for me some things i had noticed about the way my body works... like that i need more Vitamin D (i have a mutation at one of the Vit D receptors as well as another gene that works with Vit D) and that i cannot seem to process beta carotene very well (although vitamin A is fine). I was also able to confirm that i do not have the problematic MTHFR mutations.

There were a couple of other interesting things there too. I was able to get my maternal haplogroup from there and it also confirmed my NS status (i knew that one already, but it was interesting to see the FUT2 genes all being homogygous for se).

It's a lot of info and i have only just scratched the surface with it, but it's nice to have it. I also realize that just because i have a mutation somewhere, it is not a death sentence. The choices i make now can change those. I also don't approach it as "single SNP treatment"... i look at it as a big picture. It all works synergistically.

congrats PCUK! that is smart to bundle up like that!

Serenity... yes, 23 & me is still available... you get all of the ancestry info as well as all of your raw data and i think there is some basic trait info (like that you probably have blue eyes, etc). What is not currently available is the health interpretation (ie putting the information into plain english). They are working on being allowed to continue with the health interpretation, so that may become an option again in the future and my understanding is that they would apply it retroactively.

Once you get the results, the ancestry portion is available thru 23&me... so you will know your haplogroups and what your primary ethnicity is right away.(this was very interesting actually, for me it changed and it changed my SWAMI!! I thought i was western european based on what i knew from my family history, however, genetically i am actually northern european. There is a very large percentage of scandenavian genes that i was unaware of). You will also have access to all of your raw data.

The raw data is important and is really what you are after. There are a number of variance reporting apps that you can use to help you with the interpretation of the raw data. I use Livewello.com. No company is allowed to give you "health interpretation" in english terms (just in SNP codes) lol but these reports do classify the genes and can help you target what you are looking for... so with a little research you can determine what they mean. The reason i went with livewello is that they have a standard report (where you can find clotting factors, histamine, MTHFR and detox, etc) as well as there is a section that allows you to build your own SNP reports (they call it the SNP sandbox). There are many existing templates in the "sandbox" section that you can look into and use... this is where i found out about the beta carotene issue (it was under eye health)... there are usually links in each of the SNPs reported on that you can check out what they means and what they do, etc. There is another app that is reportedly quite good... it's the app at MTHFRSupport.com (Sterling's App). Both are $20 but it's totally worth it.

there are a lot of good resources out there. The MTHFR community is really quite knowledgeable on the gene interpretation. I found some radio links at blogtalkradio on how to read the 23 and me results that were very helpful. here is the link... the 2 shows are at the bottom of the page (how to read your 23 & me without going crazy)

http://www.blogtalkradio.com/drjessarmine

it's been really interesting for me, and it's good to have the data... for now and for future reference.

Zenpheonix, that is great news, how fascinating about your heritage, my father is Hungarian & mother is English/Scottish so I never knew what to pick for that question in swami.
I will definately invest in getting the kits.

These active vitamins are good. But sitting around doing nothing makes me feel best. As you can imagine the limit for that, as an adult trying to get by, is limited.

DoS - do you get a chance to mediate at all? And yes, the opportunities to do nothing as an adult are not very forthcoming... I'm just thinking that maybe meditation can help you maximize the "doing nothing" aspect... ie a 20 or 30 minute meditation can actually make you feel like you "did nothing" for much longer.

PS. I'm sorry about the partial thread jack with the 23& me stuff. Hopefully it is something that will be of benefit to you in the future.

I do sometimes. But I've chosen to listen to music often because it actually throws me into a much deeper state. Unfortunately I've just got my stereo at a playback level where I can do that again. I do miss having CD/computer inputs though because vinyl has to be flipped so it can be more difficult. It seems to work well since meditation goes poorly if my heart is beating funny.

I've had a very nice improvement in my bladder and prostate after taking active b vitamins. Also some increased libido consistency. It feels largely due to blood flow improvements; I can actually feel blood flow changes in that area; well it feels kinda like on the side of my leg. The skin on my legs is better too. No where near nice, but is that just a Teacher/Explorer thing? I haven't met any warriors with notably nice skin before.

I still feel awful a lot, but I'm fairly certain I have a reduction in annoying heart beats and palpitations. My allergies or something are working again, as some smells and things trigger sneezing now.

My ears are so much clearer, and not experiencing any sort of infections in them (problem since I was a child).

Digestion still terrible. Insulin response mixed, depends on if digestion moves. I can consume an organic soda or something with sugar, and not have any particularly noticable affects. However if I eat carbs of any sort that don't move in digestion for whatever reason, it's a gurantee for no sleep.
