Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for January 31, 2007


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.
