Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for May 19, 2008

Back in February I ordered a bunch of amino acids from a health food company in the states because I wasn’t able to find them anywhere here in Canada. I tried them here and there in different doses without the any real results. I thought there would be a noticable difference because I had followed the results of the amino acid test. When I didn’t get the results I was looking for, it was off in another direction and I tried something else.

Today I decided to try them again. There are a number of other amino acids that depend on aspartic acid so it seemed like a logical place to start and interestingly, the amino acid test indicated that I had low levels of five of the six. I always feel like a detective when I find stuff like this. Find the needle in a hay stack that leads to the breakthough…I can only hope!

Aspartic Acid

Aspartic acid plays an important role in the citric acid cycle, or Krebs cycle, during which other amino acids and biochemicals, such as asparagine, arginine, lysine, methionine, threonine, isoleucine, and several nucleotides are synthesized.

Low aspartic acid can also be associated with low calcium and magnesium levels.

Went to the Chiropractor today. I mentioned to him about the Riboflavin deficiency and the myelin shealths. He’s very interested and explains about B vitamins and suggests I look up an amino acid called Lysine. Also suggested looking up information on vitamin D because it is used to treat Multiple Sclerosis.

In multiple sclerosis, the body incorrectly directs antibodies and white blood cells against proteins in the myelin sheath.

I told him that the Iridoligist had advised me that I didn’t need it because it was summer. He disagreed and said I should look it up. I told him there seemed to be some similarities to Guillian Barre Syndrome but I didn’t think I had something that serious. He suggested looking up something called Alrnold Chiari Syndrome.

He also suggested that if I was taking B complex without any results, then there is a definate imbalance for absorption and he talked about a few examples. He asks how much vitamin C I was taking and I said around 1500 mg a day. He thought that was too much and he said for greater absorption, the stomach needs to be less acidic and more alkaline. He recommended I see a Homeopathic Doctor and Nutritional Consultant. He gave me the name and I looked him up when I got home.

I also received a phone message tonight from the Naturopath. She said she looked up Riboflavin Butyrate in her medical journals and is unable to order it. She offered to contact Kabs Pharmaceutical but wanted to speak to me first.

I don’t think I’ll bother.

When I’m out I check the health food store for some Lysine. Instead of getting just Lysine, I decided to get the full range of Amino Acids and I purchased an Amino Complex.
