For this move we have used Google Earth to check out where we should live. Checking the transit routes, public transit connections and different landmarks. We’ve found it very very useful but I’m using Google Earth for different reasons…

I’m mapping out the hydro transmission towers and the cell phone towers. I’ve created a layer and mapped out the grid so that everytime I find a house on the listing service, I check the postal code in Google Earth and map the distance.

Very effective and recommended for all those who care about those kind of things!

I ate six bananas yesterday. Early in the afternoon I felt I needed one dose of my magnesium but didn’t take any more than that.

After being on the market since June, we finally sold our house. Anyone who has moved knows the stress level involved in buying and selling a house so how where my symptoms during this time?

No different…no better and no worse.

The stress now is to find a new house within the next sixty days!!!

I had an idea today. With the riboflavin injections not having any effect on my chapped lips, I’ve been thinking about a B6 deficiency and thinking it’s possible it effecting my absorption of magnesium.

I took two capsules of magnesium glycinate this morning with my B complex and 50 mg niacin. Then, I didn’t take my magnesium for the rest of the day and I ate three bananas. Usually I get my weird symptoms if I miss any magnesium but so far, it looks like the B6 and magnesium in the bananas is having an effect.

I’ll try it again tomorrow to see what happens.

I took my lunchtime magnesium late today around 2:30 and I could feel the vibration. All afternoon even after taking my magnesium I don’t feel right. Nothing I can describe it’s just a feeling that something is wrong. I’m beginning to suspect that the new omega three with Bioperine is hurting me rather than helping.

The weird feelings don’t settle down until the evening and I only take the magnesium with nothing else.

I’ve suspected for a while that my chapped lips are from a riboflavin deficiency but after getting three B2 injections, it’s still there with very little improvement. I’ve also thought it could also be a B3 or B6 deficiency. Came across a website that talks about how Bioperine increases the absorption of B6.

Another site talks about the causes of dry lips:

Cheilitis, the medical term for dry lips, can be caused from other factors besides a change in the weather: Dry scaling of the lips and cracks at the side of the mouth are common in riboflavin (vitamin B2) deficiency. Similar findings may be seen with niacin and B6 deficiency (Source: Pocketguide to Micronutrients In Health and Disease, Dr. Robert Zimmerman, 1999, Thieme). This type of dryness can also be caused by a yeast (candida) infection (diabetics are particularly prone to this condition).

So candida can also cause this. First time I’ve ever come across this…

I’ve been taking boron supplement for about a week now because I read that low levels of boron can effect magnesium absorption and I’ve just added manganese.

Doctor Google?

Boron supplementation may be a consideration for individuals with chronically low calcium and magnesium levels, however since boron inhibits manganese, it would be best suited for those with congestive liver disease who generally exhibit higher manganese levels (manganese inhibits calcium and magnesium), but not for those whose manganese levels are already on the low side.

I don’t know what to think anymore… but I have been feeling the vibration more during the day lately.

Manganese is OUT.

Something interesting…

Trace mineral symptoms of excess or deficiency are generally one-sided, depending on their ratios to other chemical members, and depending which group they are neurologically assigned to.  In the event of calcification, it is not a high calcium level that results in the formation of a stone or spur, but calcium being high in ratio to associated or interactive elements.
 
For instance, phosphorus and zinc have both left-sided cell receptors, so if either level is low in ratio to calcium, calcification would only take place on the left side of the body, whereas the cell receptors of manganese or magnesium are right-sided, as a result, any calcification would develop on the right side of the body only.
 
The same rules apply to most nutrition-related inflammatory or degenerative conditions, so successful, non-symptomatic treatments require the application of those same principles.  Since intracellular and serum levels of nutrients represent different physiological and pathological processes, abnormal levels seen in one medium are not necessarily reflected in the other, so they need to be interpreted differently.

Today I’m in the health food store to pick up some enzymes. I won’t bother getting the same as last time because it’s so expensive and I didn’t really notice any difference.While I’m in the store, I always like to look around and make new discoveries and I come across a men’s supplement for omega 3. I check the ingredients for the amount of DHA and I notice that it contains Bioperine. Bioperine is the black pepper extract that I’ve been looking for a while without any luck. I’m about to run out of my omega 3 anyway so I pick some up.

Some googling and I find a magnesium supplement that contains Bioperine for better absorption.

Description

High Absorption Magnesium contains elemental magnesium chelated with the amino acids glycine and lysine. It is a “di-peptide” chelate, which means that each magnesium atom is chelated with two amino acid molecules. It has a low molecular weight of 324 daltons, which is ideal for optimum absorption. Bioperine is a patented herbal extract that enhances nutrient absorption.

As an essential dietary mineral, magnesium plays many important roles which include: helping cells produce metabolic energy, supporting optimum nerve function, helping muscles relax properly and maintaining a healthy heartbeat. Glycine has been shown to be an efficient carrier for minerals that facilitate absorption in the intestine tract. Glycine is used by the body to form collagen, a key protein in cartilage and connective tissue. Lysine is an essential amino acid that assists gastric function.

Glycine is a highly effective mineral chelator. This is because it is a low-molecular-weight amino acid, hence is easily transported across the intestinal membrane. A study conducted at Weber State University found this particular magnesium glycinate was absorbed up to four times more effectively than typical magnesium supplements.

In the same vitamin/mineral book I look up magnesium. To my shock and amazement I discover that cod liver oil and fat soluble vitamins inhibit the absorption of magnesium!! I’ve never read that anywhere! Not even doctor google.

I’ve been taking fat soluble vitamins A and E for months now. Could that be my problem? I’ve also been taking Omega three supplements. Is that the same as cod liver oil? I’ll have to look into that.

Oh boy…

I was reading one of those think vitamin/mineral books today and I was reading about how manganese works with enzymes and B vitamins.

What it does in the body

Manganese appears to be involved in many enzyme systems, although its functions are not well understood. It acts as a co-factor for enzymes necessary for energy production and is involved in glucose metabolism, the stimulation of glycogen storage in the liver, protein digestion and cholesterol and fatty acid synthesis. It is also necessary for the synthesis of DNA and RNA.

Manganese is necessary for growth, maintenance of the nervous system, the development and maintenance of hair, healthy bones and joints, the formation of blood clotting factors, female sex hormone function and thyroid hormone function.

Manganese activates several enzyme systems and supports the utilization of vitamin C, E, choline, and other B-vitamins.

I pick up some manganese…

Went to my doctor today for another riboflavin injection. I mentioned the magnesium injection again and he is still reluctant but we have a good discussion. I explain how I thought I was hanging on with the vitamins and that the riboflavin is only one of the symptoms and not the root cause.

He wants me to try St. Johns Wort. I’ve always heard of it but I have no clue what it does so I ask him. He says he doesn’t want to interfere with the results and wants me to try it and tell him if it has any effect so I agree to get some. I push for the magnesium injection again and says he has no problem doing it if I can find it (haha) but wants me to use St. Johns Wort for three weeks slowing increasing the dosage weekly until I see him again in three weeks.

I don’t have a problem trying St. Johns Wort but it’s still not dealing with the root cause. I’m hardly deficient in St. Johns Wort? I pick some up on my way home and I take one capsule with my lunch.

When I get home I use doctor google to find out more:

Medically Valid Uses:

St. John’s wort has been used successfully to treat mild to moderate depression. Several studies have indicated that it is as effective as many prescription antidepressants when used to treat mild or moderate depression. St. John’s wort is not useful for treating major or severe depression.

Externally, oily hypericum preparations have been used in the treatment of injuries, muscle pain and first-degree burns.

Unsubstantiated Claims:

Please note that this section reports on claims that have NOT yet been substantiated through scientific studies.

Traditionally, St. John’s wort has been used as a muscle relaxant to relieve menstrual cramps and as a mild tranquilizer.

Although without scientific confirmation, it is also claimed to function as a nerve tonic (has a beneficial effect on the nervous system), as an anti-inflammatory (decreases swelling), as an astringent (contracts the tissues or canals of the body), as a vulnerary (brings about healing in wounds and inflammation), as a antineoplastic (cancer fighting) and as an antiviral. For instance, it is claimed that it may possibly help inhibit viral infections, including herpes and HIV.

St. John’s wort has also been claimed to be good for nerve pain (neuralgia), anxiety, tension, nervous debility, stress, irritability and insomnia. It is also claimed to ease the pain associated with fibrositis, sciatica, rheumatoid arthritis, menstruation, itching and burning of hemorrhoids, and itching and irritation caused by vaginitis.

When used externally, St. John’s wort has been claimed to possibly speed the healing of bruises, wounds, varicose veins, mild burns and sunburns.

St. John’s wort can interfere with the absorption of iron and other minerals.

Okay, so he wants me to take St. John’s wort for anxiety and for general nervousness. But it can interfere with the absorption of minerals??!!!! You’ve got to be kidding…

Woke up with the vibration. Yesterday I had a bowl of cereal with milk and I suspect that is the problem. Calcium. I’ve decided to cut down on my vitamins and only take magnesium, boron, niacin, omega 3, lutein and enzymes. I stop taking potassium.

I never noticed any difference taking potassium.

I made an appointment with my Orangeville Doctor today. I haven’t seen him in sixteen years but I’m hoping that he still has my records. I want to find out the date that I went to see him for my allergies. Maybe I’ll run the magnesium deficiencies by him and mention the injection. It’s a real long shot but I’ll try it just to see where it goes.

He sure looks a lot different sixteen years later! I start with the date of my allergies. He says legally, they only have to store them for five years but he likes to hold onto his. He says my records have been archived abd he should have no problem lookig up the date for me. He asks if I have anything else and I swing into magnesium deficiencies.

He doesn’t appear convinced and says it is very difficult to actually lose the body’s magnesium. I counter with my fifteen year diet of no fruits and very little vegetables. I mention about my symptoms and the frustration over the past 18 months and suggest a magnesium injecton.

He sympathizes with my fustration but he wants me to follow up with my own doctor (Which is what I thought he would say…) I always have to defend myself or explain with convincing arguments whenever I mention a magnesium deficiency. Everything I’ve read talks about how 80-90% of people are deficient in magnesium but someone is not telling the doctors…

He said he would mail the allergy dates to my house.
