Just wondering if you take any supplements or focus on foods that support the nervous system...

I am taking Trehalose Complex to assist nerve healing.  

Otherwise, I am eating as the body directs to provide the "medicinals" needed.

When needed, I take digestive or detox aids to handle detox products being removed from the liver or lymph system.

Are you doing a lot of this intuitively?

To a certain extent, "Yes."  I started by using a practitioner who practices using Muscle Response Testing.  I practiced until I can ignore any "desire" and focus on "need".  I've tested the accuracy many times when the practitioner is testing that I know that I am accurate, so this removes any hesitation I have to using it.  Through the last 10 or so years, my body has gotten so sensitive to what it needs, that (most of the time) all I have to do is walk through the kitchen (or grocery store) and allow myself to be drawn to what it needs.  I know this isn't something that everyone is able to do, so don't "advertise" it too much.

Thanks. That seems to be the direction I am headed as well. I went through a period where I seemed to need a huge variety and amount of supplements (sometimes my analytical mind was shocked-- but no negative affect that I could tell) and then it has been tapering off with just some supps occassionally and foods I couldn't eat for a long time are coming back into the mix as being good choices. I take this as getting to a point where I am getting what I need from actually digesting the food instead of it going unprocessed into my system and then having immune reactions.

I have been malnourished for a long time with gut issues.

Digestive enzymes have helped tremendously and are the one thing I am drawn to consistently, but the other day I "forgot" after eating a full meal and was an hour from home and several hours from returning home. No pain or negative consequence. Big victory.

I am seeing/meeting/discovering other people that are doing well with this concept. I was a little weirded out by it at first because it doesn't seem "scientific" i.e. 200 mg/ 3x per day but I do think I am getting better results. I take it as my body knows what it needs; I just need to pay attention. I do think that a gut that has flora imbalance influences thinking though and creates cravings for what "it" needs and not necessarily what is best for you.

I do agree, though, that it is a process and it takes a certain level of awareness. I like that "need" vs. "desire" distinction. Hmm....

Yeah, I don't really advertise it either. My husband gets it, as does my local doctor (THANK GOD!), but it is pretty out of sync with the way American culture thinks.

I use food based supplements whenever I can.

Eating tremendous amounts of acerola cherry extract lately. Whole food, but insane amounts of vitamin C over what was listed on the RDA on the side. 1.5 tsp=500% and I am calling for like 4-5 TABLESPOONS. No diarrea or other ill effects. Watching the rotation to keep it spaced so I definitely won't create a reaction from consuming multiple days in a row.


Plan to put Trehelose into the repertoire of choices soon. Haven't even read the 500 post plus thread. Doing lots of detox/rebuild right now, so we'll see.

I did much the same...  Only for years before Eat Right, I kept getting worse.  Once I started ER, it took some time and LOADS of supplements to get the digestion back to mostly working.  I still have work to be done there, as my white lines are not totally gone, but definitely have gotten much better.

Once I found ER, my appetite started tapering down some and I made the comment to WW that I had been eating like a pig, had actually developed a layer of fat(toxic waste), but starving to death...

I get better results when I follow my body.  I like Dr. D's statement (paraphrased) that anytime you put something into a complex system that it doesn't need, you reduce its robustness.  This is why I let it make the call.

I agree that flora imbalances (or spinal misalignment) can have negative effects on accuracy of the testing.  Most of the time, it makes two opposing tests result in the same answer, so it is easy to see that there is a problem.  I can usually go rest for a bit or stretch to move the spine and correct the testing errors within anywhere from 1 to 12 hours...

Indeed.  My family and practitioner get it, but the rest of the world is ???.  I test WW and DD for supps. as well and they do well based on the tests...

I never get a reaction to something I need - unless it is part of a reaction I've had in the past and need to clear the "memory" of the reaction out of the allergy record in the hypothalamus...

The best parts of that thread are the links to the autophagy talk, Dr. D.'s blog about autophagy - thought there was a third, but can't remember it now...

Fascinating.

This is such a great forum.
