Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for September 23, 2006

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.

Previous Night Vibration Status: Extremely Weak
Morning Vibration Status: Extremely Weak

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…
