Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for July 15, 2007


Day one: The treatment with phosphorus was a success. The cold hands that I’ve had all week didn’t happen once today. Didn’t get the weird nerve feelings in my head either.

With the added research from this weekend, I’ve discovered that phosphorus plays a role in the creation of lecithin and I found my bottle half full from the last time I tried it. Lecithin contains a B vitamin called Choline. Here’s what I found:

Choline

Although choline is not by strict definition a vitamin, it is an essential nutrient. Despite the fact that humans can synthesize it in small amounts, choline must be consumed in the diet to maintain health. The majority of the body’s choline is found in specialized fat molecules known as phospholipids, the most common of which is called phosphatidylcholine or lecithin.

Support of Nervous System Activity

Choline is a key component of acetylcholine, a messenger molecule found in the nervous system. Acetylcholine, also called a neurotrasmitter since it carries messages from and to nerves, is the body’s primary chemical means of sending messages between nerves and muscles. Because of its role in nerve-muscle function, choline (supplemented in the form of lecithin, or phosphatidylcholine), has been used experimentally to help improve neuromuscular function in Alzheimer’s disease.
