Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for September 05, 2007


Woke up with the vibration…

I’m not sure how that’s possible because I’m literally swimming in niacin these past few days. That can only mean one thing: I may be low in niacin, but it’s not the cause of the vibration.

My two main symptoms are Candida and the vibration/anxiety.

So using candida as a starting point, I come across the following article:

Glutathione

As Candida albicans spreads beyond the gastrointestinal tract and colonizes in other areas of the body, it produces various toxins. These toxins can impair health by reducing the body’s supply of white blood cells, which are needed by the immune system to properly fend off infectious bacteria, viruses, fungi, and other pathogens. Candida albicans toxins also inhibit the body’s ability to manufacture antioxidants, including glutathione, an enzyme that is important for liver detoxification and cellular respiration. As a result of these negative effects caused by the unchecked spread of Candida albicans, symptoms of candida can manifest in many different ways, mimicking other disease conditions and negatively impacting many areas of your body.

Glutathione, an amino acid is low in people with candida. Okay, I’ve tried amino acids before but maybe I’ll have a different result now that I’ve taken care of the mineral deficiencies.

Here’s some more information about how a Glutathione deficiency can effect the nervous system:

“A deficiency of Glutathione first affects the nervous system, causing such symptoms as lack of coordination, mental disorders, tremors, and difficulty maintaining balance. These problems are believed to be due to development of lesions in the brain.”

Glutathione can be depleted by a host of agents working alone or together. Environmental pollutants, tobacco smoke, alcohol abuse, acetaminophen, mercury from dental fillings, and a sustained immune response against persistent toxins, can all rob you of this most important health asset. Mercury can impair your body’s ability to synthesize Glutathione by normal means.

The liver produces glutathione from the amino acids cysteine, glutamic acid and glycine. Glutathione deficiency results in early aging and in the loss of coordination, balance, tremors, and mental disorders.

Glutathione levels decline with age and if not corrected will accelerate the aging process; so supplementation is important. But the assimilation of supplemental oral glutathione is questionable. Instead it is best to supplement with cysteine, glutamic acid and glycine and have the body use those raw materials to manufacture needed glutathione.
