Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for January 31, 2007

This article makes so much sense…it’s scary… and it all starts with the fungus…fueled by sugar, effecting the adrenal glands, effecting the thyroid…effecting the neuro-transmitters…

Add to that: Fifteen years of daily chocolate bars, candies, donuts, no fruits and a very low vegetable intake. It’s no wonder I have issues.

What is the fungal immune system?

Initially in a adult it is about 4-8 lbs of friendly bacteria in the lower gut. This comprises about 85% of all organisms in the bowels. The remaining 15% is fungus. It takes this ratio to keep the fungus in check. Fungus is the aggressor and is much more powerful than the bacteria. Fungus has no anti-bodies to protect itself but it produces very deadly mycotoxins. …

Once the fungus takes over the bowels it migrates upward until reaching the small intestine where digestion and assimilation of all nutrients takes place. However, when the small intestine fills with fungus this process cannot take place. Organs and glands are deprived of its building blocks and systems begin to fail.

Hypoglycemia

Symptoms begin to show up and are usually viewed as individual diseases themselves.

The fungus in seeking its main food of SUGAR upsets the body’s whole sugar system. The person deprived of the chaperone minerals needed to escort sugar and insulin into the cells…… becomes hypoglycemic. They now have low cellular sugar, a perfect playground for fungus to feed. However, now the cells do not have enough sugar to burn for energy so we become weak if we do not eat often and we surely do not have enough sugar to keep us alive during the night!

The brain now signals the adrenal gland to send out adrenal hormones to keep the body functioning during the night, which it does. But the side effect is that during the night the person may get hot or they may even have night sweats! The adrenal gland is now working 24 hours per day! …

This fermenting begins the failure of the THYROID to get its building blocks to produce it’s hormones in order to regulate body temperature and important help towards the making of some neuro-transmitters.

Not only does this lack of thyroid hormone produce some fatigue and make the person’s hands & feet cold but it can effect the brain in several ways. One is foggy thinking. It seems to physically interrupt short term memory because of Candida’s alcohol by-product. Alcohol is documented to cause brain and nervous system damage.

Depression
The other is in the form of depression since the thyroid may be deprived of Iodine and the amino acid tyrosine because of mal-absorption. A severe case of hypo-thyroid-ism may result. Often however, upon examination the thyroid will fall into a low-end-zone of what is considered medically OK. In most cases no hormone is given and the condition continues. …

The thyroid is also involved in the production of some neuro-transmitters. Without these they may soon feel they require a drug for problems with depression.

How can you tell if you have Adrenal Fatigue?

You may be suffering from Adrenal Fatigue if you regularly experience one or more of the following symptoms:

-Tired for no reason
-Trouble getting up in the morning even when you go to bed at a reasonable hour
-Feeling rundown or overwhelmed
-Can’t bounce back from stress or illness
-Crave salty and sweet snacks
-Feeling best only after 6 PM

Vitamin C has a direct relationship to the health of your glands — in particular, the adrenal glands which produce adrenaline and noradrenaline, neurotransmitters that help us to cope with stress. When under stress, whether psychological or physical, a great deal of vitamin C is used to produce these hormones. Thus a lack can cause a vicious cycle: if you are low on it, whether due to stress or other factors, the adrenal glands cannot produce enough of the stress-coping hormones and the body experiences further stress.

Like vitamin C, the B-complex vitamins, nicknamed the anti-stress vitamins, help the body resist stress through their influence on the adrenal glands. In response to stress, adrenal hormones — in particular, cortisone — stimulate energy production by increasing blood sugar levels. With prolonged stress, the adrenal glands become exhausted and less able to secrete cortisone. Exhausted adrenal glands are a primary cause of immune system destruction and consequent disease.

Of all the details you may notice while looking in the mirror, under-eye circles are perhaps the “crystal ball” of health messengers. They can tell you a lot about your sleep habits, hydration needs, allergies and food sensitivities–and your sweet tooth.

They can also provide warning signals of much more complex health issues such as stress, adrenal exhaustion or even sluggish kidney function.

I was looking up Adrenals in my health book and I came across a reference for an amino acid called Tyrosine. I’ve tried an amino acid complex before without much luck but this time, I look further:

Diagnosis

Essential vitamin, mineral, and amino acid deficiencies frequently go undiagnosed in conventional medicine because conventional testing methods look for pathology—meaning the tests only check for chronic conditions that are present, and NOT for the precursors that lead to illness. In a conventional medical setting, symptoms may go undiagnosed for months or even years before a chronic condition fully develops. That’s why it’s important to choose functional testing, which is designed to detect the biochemical imbalances that are causing your symptoms, before they lead to chronic conditions.

Amino Acids – Amino acids are the “building blocks” of proteins and are necessary for virtually everything in our bodies, including most hormones and all neurotransmitters. Low levels of amino acids are closely associated with several chronic ailments.

In particular, people with Candida have been found to be deficient in nearly all amino acids. Many Chronic Fatigue Syndrome patients have low levels of L-tryptophan and L-tyrosine. L-tyrosine plays a key role in the production of thyroid hormone, so low levels of this amino acid may explain the prevalence of thyroid issues among chronically ill people. Amino acids can be maintained at healthy levels with the use of well-balanced dietary supplements, but only while also striving to get enough high-quality protein in the diet.

Glycine, Serine, Taurine and Arginine deficiencies are seen in Candidiasis.

Found another web site that suggested taking Proline for candida. And another suggested a link to low magnesium levels:

Low L-aspartic acid can be associated with low calcium and magnesium levels. Therefore, if one has this deficiency, calcium and magnesium levels should be checked.
