Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Taking another look at the interrelationships I noticed that niacin (Vitamin B3) has a relationship with copper. Now that I think I’ve somewhat balanced the zinc/copper ratio, I’m curious to know if there is a difference now when I add niacin.

Okay…about the new theory.

If I stop for a second and review my “case” from the very beginning, the very first symptom was the internal vibration followed by gastric upset and then the nerve endings in my head started tingling.

I discovered that the gastric upset was caused by a niacin deficiency and the nerve endings was a riboflavin B vitamin deficiency. I always thought having a deficiency in these two particular vitamins was unusual to say the least. With the niacin, I would take 300 mg a day for months and no matter how much riboflavin I took, it never seemed to make a difference until I started the B vitamin injections.

The niacin fixed the gastric upset and although it did stop the vibration, it would never stop it completely and that lead me in other directions.

One of the things I’ve been thinking about lately is that I still have candida so whatever is causing the vibration is causing an imbalance that will cause candida and I know that niacin is anti fungal. My candida is the best it’s ever been but it’s not perfect but I feel it’s very close.

My New Theory:

I’m beginning to think that the vibration is caused by niacin but the reason it never fixed the problem was because I was low in phosphorus and it wasn’t activated. Riboflavin worked because of the mega-dosage injection. I’d be willing to bet that if I didn’t discover the low phosphorus, the riboflavin symptoms would return.

The B vitamins are essential for the nerves and the current nerve ending feelings in my head are different but they are somewhat similar to the riboflavin nerve symptoms.

I take one 100 mg of niacin with dinner and another one just before going to bed. Tomorrow, I’ll try another experiment. I’m going to add niacin of course but I’ll delay taking the other supplements and see if I get any of my regular symptoms…

Yet another weird day at the office. Before I had a chance to take my morning minerals, I had that mild nerve sensation in my head. It should really come as no surprise as I skipped the minerals at dinner last night.

So I took my supplements in the morning and by noon I had cold hands. I took the Cal Apatite with Magnesium which seemed to help a little but not really. All afternoon I was fighting the cold hands and I wasn’t really sure how to get rid of it because nothing seemed to work so I just left it and it seemed to get better on it’s own. I had a tuna sandwich for lunch with always makes me feel better so I’m not sure what happened.

Another thing I’ve noticed is that magnesium doesn’t seem to help me anymore. even the homeopathic version.

Another strange thing I noticed was that after breakfast and again after lunch, I felt a little sick and in both cases it got better the longer after eating the meals. Almost like the alkaline stomach feeling which I haven’t had in a very long time.

In fact, I may have another theory…

“Current international standards are based on fish instead of air-breathing animals.” Brutal… that’s all I’ve got to say…

Toxins in humans go unrecorded

We may be more toxic than we think.

Researchers at Simon Fraser University have found methods used to calculate chemical levels in humans may seriously underestimate our true toxic loads.

That’s because current international standards are based on fish instead of air-breathing animals.

As a result, thousands of chemicals — from pesticides to perfumes — are likely not being measured properly, leading to lower estimates of our environmental toxin load.

“The study is a red flag to show that there are numerous chemicals out there with these properties that could potentially accumulate in these animals,” said lead author Barry Kelly, a post-doctoral student.

“Some of these chemicals are not being scrutinized. The main goal is to try to broaden our approach in the risk-assessment stage before chemicals can be approved,” said the environmental toxicologist.

Kelly explained that while the fish method was effective years ago when the most dangerous toxins were PCBs and DDT, new chemicals have different properties and the old standard doesn’t apply.

Environment Canada, Health Canada, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and United Nations use fish-based models.

According to co-author Frank Gobas, a professor in the school of resource and environmental management, the consequence is that “about a third of all industrial chemicals are currently wrongly assessed in terms of their potential effects in mammals, birds and humans.”

The research is published in Friday’s issue of the academic journal Science. It was a joint project between SFU, the Department of Fisheries and Oceans and the Institute of Ocean Sciences.

The researchers hope their study will encourage agencies to add new tests to improve their toxin measurement standards.
