Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for July 31, 2006

Was just reading about ways to protect yourself against cell phone radiation. Here are some supplements that help protect the body. No one has ever mentioned any of this despite my story about EMF exposure.

Microwave radiation has been shown to decrease levels of anti-oxidants in the body. These are substances the body produces to protect itself, and their levels are sensitive indicators in stress, aging, infections and various other disease states.

Take nutritional supplements, particularly anti-oxidants Superoxide Dismutase (SOD),  Catalase, Glutathione, and Coq10.

Other supplements you may need are:

Melatonin: a powerful anti-oxidant noted to prevent DNA breaks in brain cells. Also effective in preventing kidney damage from cell phones;

Zinc: protects the eye from oxidative damage and helps preserve the levels of anti-oxidants in the blood;

Gingko Biloba: an herb considered a powerful anti-oxidant which prevents oxidative damage in the brain, eye and kidney. Also helps support the production of SOD, catalase and glutathione;

Bilberry extract: preserves vision and reduces oxidative damage to the eyes.

Microwave radiation has been shown to decrease levels of anti-oxidants in the body and I had extremely high level of free radicals in my system. Another interesting connection? Riboflavin deficiency can cause high level of free radicals in the body.

In addition to producing energy for the body, riboflavin also works as an antioxidant by scavenging damaging particles in the body known as free radicals. These particles occur naturally in the body but can damage cell membranes, interact with genetic material, and possibly contribute to the aging process as well as the development of a number of health conditions such as heart disease and cancer. Antioxidants such as riboflavin can neutralize free radicals and may reduce or even help prevent some of the damage they cause.

Picked up the multi-vitamin today from SISU. Even the multi contains the high grade formula of B2 & B6. The advantage now is that the dosage is only 10 mg and 1 mg respectfully so I’ll be able to take it three times a day for better absorption without getting too much. I take one with my dinner.

Suggested Adult Dosage: 2 capsules daily with meals.

Each capsule contains:

Vitamin A (palmitate) 4,000 IU
Vitamin E 80 IU (dl-alpha tocopherol acetate)
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) 50 mg
Thiamine hydrochloride 20 mg (Vitamin B1)
Riboflavin-5’-phosphate (B2) 10 mg
Niacinamide (B3) 10 mg
Pantothenic acid 100 mg (B5 – D-calcium pantothenate)
Pyridoxine hydrochloride (B6) 30 mg
Pyridoxine 1 mg (pyridoxal-5’-phosphate)
Cobalamin (B12) 160 mcg
Folic Acid 0.06 mg
Biotin 80 mcg
Magnesium (oxide) 50 mg
Potassium (chloride) 20 mg
Manganese (sulfate) 3 mg
Zinc (sulfate) 6 mg
Selenium (selenite) 40 mcg
Molybdenum (molybdate) 40 mcg
Chromium (HVP* chelate) 80 mcg *HVP=hydrolyzed vegetable (rice) protein
Iron (ferric ammonium citrate) 4 mg
Para Aminobenzoic Acid 40 mg
Glutamic acid 40 mg

What are the ingredients in Multi-Vi-Min?

Vitamin A: Most of our organs require vitamin A for healthy function, especially the eyes and reproductive system. Deficiency can depress the immune response, which can improve with supplementation.

B Vitamins: B vitamins work together in the support of many bodily systems and are important to cardiovascular, nervous system, gastrointestinal, skin and mental health to name a few.

Vitamin C: Immune response is comprised of a complex network of multiple actions, reactions and interactions. Vitamin C is known primarily as an immune booster because it enhances virtually every aspect of immune function. It is also a potent antioxidant as well as an anti-viral and antibacterial agent.

Vitamin E: Another powerful antioxidant, Vitamin E is important in cardiovascular, nervous system and immune function. It works synergistically with other antioxidants, including Vitamin C and selenium, and plays a role in protecting the body against such toxins such as lead, mercury and other heavy metals, environ-mental pollutants, compounds such as benzene, carbon tetrachloride and cleaning solvents, as well as drugs and radiation.

Biotin: Deficiency is associated with baldness, fatigue, insomnia, muscle pain and weakness.

Magnesium: Calcium and magnesium together are essential to heart health. Magnesium works closely with potassium, which is also vital to heart health. Magnesium also can help regulate blood pressure.

Potassium: Linked with heart health, potassium supplements have been shown to lower blood pressure. However, potassium should always be taken together with magnesium, as the two work synergistically.

Manganese: Supports bone formation and glucose metabolism, and enhances natural killer cell activity.

Zinc: Deficiency can impair immune function, male fertility and wound healing, and can contribute to eczema and acne.

Selenium: Another antioxidant, selenium works synergistically with Vitamin E. Deficiency can impair growth, immune function and pancreatic function.

Molybdenum: This trace mineral may help the body detoxify sulfites, which are used to preserve many foods and have been linked to allergic reactions.

Chromium: This mineral is essential to glucose metabolism. In fact, glucose intolerance is one of the first signs of chromium deficiency. High blood glucose can impair immune function. Supplementation can improve glucose tolerance.

Iron: Iron deficiency is the most common nutrient deficiency in North America which can cause anemia and impaired immune function.

Para aminobenzoic acid: Deficiency is associated with fatigue, constipation, headaches and irritability.

Glutamic acid: A metabolite of the amino acid glutamine. Deficiency has been linked with depressed immune function.

I stopped drinking milk on a regular basis when I read it was linked to Allergies. Before that, I used to drink milk all of the time. So then I switched to apple and fruit juices thinking it was healthier. I never really noticed any difference to my allergies after i quit drinking milk but I never went back. Actually, without even knowing it, I was making things worse.

Riboflavin

Fortifying cereals and flours with riboflavin began during World War II, when meats and dairy products, among the best sources of the nutrient, were rationed. But folks who choose to limit their dairy and meat consumption may still be at risk for deficiency. “We’ve done a study that shows there is a correlation between low milk intake and riboflavin deficiency, particularly among African-American youths,” says Dr. Cooperman.

Intestinal bacteria produce varying amounts of riboflavin; this poses some questions regarding different people’s needs for B2 and may minimize the degree of riboflavin deficiency, even with diets low in riboflavin intake. Though there are many deficiency symptoms possible with low levels of B2 in the body, no specific serious deficiency disease is noted for riboflavin, as there is for vitamins B1 and B3 (niacin). Riboflavin-5-phosphate, a form of riboflavin, may be more readily assimilated by some people.

My Doctor’s office called me today. I have an appointment with the Neurologist on August 29th. One month to see a specialist, that’s better than I expected. I thought it would be a lot longer…

Followed up with Sick Kids and the pharmacist said she spoke to the person who actually places the orders and it has never been ordered and it is not possible to get it. She said if I do find it, I don’t need a prescription and that I should be able to order it for personal use.

Holding out for Romania!!!

I end up taking three of the new B complex capsules and I shouldn’t have taken the last one. I took it with a multivitamin and for most of the night, my eyes are really bloodshot, itchy and tired. Then I realize, three capsules plus the multivitamin equals 85 mg of Riboflavin. That’s way too much as it is based on weight and I already knew this but this new stuff must be more powerful to have this effect. I’ve been taking 400-500 mg per day with the other cheaper version and it was never like this.

Riboflavin deficiency can be treated with supplemental riboflavin (0.5 mg/kg body weight per day) until the symptoms disappear.

My Calculation: 186 lbs equals 84.36 kg therefore I should be taking 42 kg a day.

I won’t take any tomorrow and get back on track for Wednesday.
