The D-Ribose you can get out of a health food store, but its expensive at the doses you need to take. The best way is order off the Internet in the biggest bottle you can find at the best price. Thats what i am doing on the next bottle.
Well, it certainly isn't my idea. Allot of different Doctors have been pointing at the mitocondria for different reason for a long time. I also noticed when I would try to go back to work a couple of times in a physicaly demanding job that the only thing that seemed to really help my energy levels was very high doses of COQ10, which is pointing at the Mitocondria. And then I noticed that when I spent a year on Amitriptylene at 100 mgs a day and 20 to 40 milligrams of Paxil, that when I came off of it, so the drug side effects were gone, I didn't have depression or anxiety anymore and my energy level was higher then when I went on it, and I could still sleep normaly, but my energy level was still hugely fluctuateing. I was going back and forth between high energy level and dragging. So it was like the anti-depressents had partialy fixed something, but there was still something missing.
Essentialy, after coming off those high doses of anti-depressents that would do a certain amount of repair to the Hypothalmus, if I would have had a consistent energy level, I would have felt totaly normal for about
3 months before it started to mentaly degrade again and took the increased energy level with it.
I am currently trying to treat this with high doses of D-Ribose and COQ10 and high dose Ascorbic Acid for the Mitocondria, and high dose Acetyl L Carnitine for the Hypothalmus, since the Klonopin I take down regulates the Hypothalmus and Acytyl L-Carnitine is known for countering the negative brain effects of Benzodiazepines. Also, the D-Ribose and CoQ10 should help with brain circulation and cellular energy in the brain, so I am hoping that helps to repair the Hypothalmus without having to use anti-depressents again. Depending on the effect, I may increase it even more.
I don't really know anything except what I read, try to make sense of the pieces, and then play guinea pig. I'll get back to you if and when I am back to walking malls and going out to movies and visiting relatives on weekends instead of just going from my job to home because there is no reserve.
