I’ve done very little training over the last several days due to family commitments, but I have learned quite a bit. Once again, in theory, I have a path to balance. The problem is that my theories have never worked out in practice. I tried 3 neuro treatments despite not expecting much. Here are the results:
5-HTP (Serotonin)- Non-factor
Mucuna Prureins (Dopamine)- Worse. More overstimulated.
Tyrosine +C (Adrenaline)- Worse. More Overstimulated.
My neuros are okay. I am nearly certain. I might consider a thyroid test but once again, I’m pretty sure that would also come back normal. The only thing I can do is stick to my current formula and hope improvements will come with time.
TRS- Mega doses are required. I feel MUCH better immediately after taking it. It is the one treatment that I cannot do without. I take 10 sprays in the morning and 10 sprays in the evening. That’s actually down from 15 last week and it may come down further down the road. I did one interval workout that sealed the deal. Though unsure of the exact distance, it was probably about 400 meters and here were the results:
Opener- 2:14. 5 sprays- 1:57. 10 sprays- 1:45. 15 sprays- 1:44.7
Only fractionally better from 10-15. I’m cutting that to 10. The problem is that it does wear off around lunchtime when I take it first thing in the morning. I must hold off until late afternoon or I will go broke. It’s very expensive. Maybe a cut to 5 sprays x 2 is in my future.
Problems Tolerating the TRS?
That is almost certainly attributed to Sulfur. Just avoid the sulfur containing amino acids from all sources and I should have no trouble tolerating TRS.
Need for Methylation, Sarcosine and Maca:
If I miss a day or two, it’s okay. I can get away with it. Hell, I won’t even notice it on the first day and probably not on the second day either. Anything beyond that is asking for trouble however. I learned the hard way that a week off Maca led to awful symptoms. I may be able to quit the DIM however. Again, that is sure a lot better than where I was when I need an exact cocktail every single day or else.
Magnesium and ADHS:
I probably won’t notice if I took a whole week off that stuff but I know that I’d have trouble if I quit it permanently. I thought about adding back Selenium but I expect that would be a non-factor. TRS does the same job of eliminating Arsenic.
I am prepared for the possibility of a plateau FAR below my peak or continuing to get worse in spite of doing everything right. I do have one last option. That is removal of my titanium dental implant. I got it in Spring 2013 and a quick read through reveals that my downturn began before that but accelerated thereafter. A hair test can reveal the extent of the toxicity. It’s possible that it’s not an issue at all. I’d also be interested in the status of my other toxic metals.
