Thanks for explaining things to me. Im doing more and more reading on the mutations so im putting two and two together now.
Yesterday and the day before i took a supplement which has methionine and zince sulphate in it, an the next two days im dealing with cramps and today even blood. And gassy as well. I was wonderig why and i looked at the cyles and it all made sense, the sulphate (although less toxic than sulphite) is still an excitotoxin, and the methionine goes into the cycle and produces homocysteine which (due to CBS upregulation -i think i have that based on Sx) gets converted into ammonia and ketoglutatate and the toxic sulphite.
Sheesh, this stuff makes sense. I like it when things make sense.
I like the heartfixer page, very informative. Dr James Roberts keeps mentioning the urine sulphate tests, and other things likw spectracell. Im thinking of contacting him to see if he can take me on as a patient. I mean there is ALOT of info on this topic, like i can read up and get educated but i don't know if i'll be able to figure out when to wean myself off the low sulphir diet, how to reintroduce sulphur foods, when to test again by spectracell, and what to do with the results. You know what i mean? I mean you are a legend for doing it on your own.
It's all exciting ad overwhelming at the same time.
