Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for March 07, 2007

Second meeting with the nutritionist tonight. I had a brief summary of some of my new discoveries since we last met a month ago. I also printed the artcle “Introduction To Copper Toxicity” By Dr. Paul C. Eck and Dr. Larry Wilson as a reference.

She starts by saying that she’d like me to visit a naturopath for some testing. There are six different tests that she has requested but there is one small problem. For the tests to be accurate, I’ll need to stop taking my supplements for three weeks. She felt it was important to get a more accurate understanding of my deficiencies and weaknesses before starting any kind of treatment because right now, it’s a educated guess and I agree.

There is no way I can go without magnesium for three weeks. Anytime I miss one dosage I can feel the effect on my symptoms and the way I feel. I agreed to try it but explain that I don’t think I can do it. She said to contact the naturopath to arrange the appointment and speak directly to her about it. I can probably go without everything else except magnesium so I ask if I could switch to the homeopathic version. Again, she says I’ll have to check with the naturopath.

Here’s a list of the requested tests:

  • Food Sensitivity Work Up
  • Candida and Parasite Screen
  • Nutritional Deficiencies and Supplements
  • Toxic Metal Detection
  • Organ Stress Test
  • Geographic/Electromagnetic Sensitivity

Total Cost? $220.00 I wish the original naturopath did these type of tests. I might be a lot further ahead instead of wasting my time with the hair analysis and the hormone test.

I then show her my new research and talk about a zinc deficiency. Explain my experiements with high intake of copper and zinc. Told her about quitting the candida diet and having better success with copper and zinc than the diet itself. She looks up zinc in her nutritional book and gives a list of foods high in zinc. I also ask her about the copper/zinc ratio. I’ve read everything from 6-1, 10-1 and even 30-1 so which one is it? She says it should be a 6-1 ratio. She also says that I shouldn’t take more than 100 mg a day.

She wants me to continue with the candida diet and we talk about the types of foods that I can eat. I mention about the carrots and other vegetables high in sugar. She said I could have any kind of vegetable in moderation and that even potatoes are okay. She writes out a list of acceptable candida foods.

She’s still taking a very slow approach and I agree with her direction but I’m really looking for results.

I leave her clinc and although I agree with what was said, I really believe I’m on the edge of success with the zinc and I’d like to try a few things myself before I commit to her program.

Discovered a book written by nutritionist Ann Louise Gittleman that details the body’s copper imbalance. I looked it up in my library directory and ordered it.

Why Am I Always So Tired?: Discover How Correcting Your Body’s Copper Imbalance Can Keep Your Body From Giving Out Before Your Mind Does.

Copper overload is an insidious but increasingly common nutritional problem, says Ann Louise Gittleman, author of the bestselling Beyond Pritikin. She says that difficulty getting out of bed, midday slumps, mood swings, insomnia, and anxiety may be symptoms of a copper/zinc imbalance. She discovered this link after she encountered several patients in her nutritional practice–most of them women–who were not suffering from hypothyroidism, adrenal problems, or anemia (as she had suspected), but rather a mineral imbalance.

To remedy the overload, Gittleman outlines an easy plan for renewing health and increasing energy. She includes a questionnaire to help determine if copper overload may be a problem for you; gives resources for hair analysis in case your doctor doesn’t have one; instructs on how to read a tissue-analysis report; and outlines a sensible diet plan, including menus to keep the zinc/copper balance in check.

“Copper is an essential mineral and is required for normal health. However, in excess its presence in biological systems can become detrimental as illustrated by Bertrand’s Law of optimal nutritive concentration of an essential trace element. Conditions associated with copper deficiency are well known, although other than inborn errors of metabolism such as Wilson’s Disease, the effects of copper excess are not widely recongnized. Ann Louise Gittleman’s book is probably the first to deal with the subject of copper excess in the American population. A condition that is becoming more prevalent in each generation but clinically unrecognized until now.”

I went to her web site and there was a audio seminar section called “Are You a Copperhead?” I listened to her talk about excess copper and zinc deficiencies and one of the things that stood out for me was how having a fear of heights and hair loss can be related to a zinc/copper imbalance. Both of which, I’ve had for years. And the constant tireness? Yup…for years…

First day off the diet and I grab a bag of apples and three bananas for my morning routine. It’s great to be back! I know I have candida and I know how to deal with it but it’s the magnesium loss that I’m really struggling with.

It’s almost been three weeks and my follow up with the nutritionist is Thursday night. I haven’t received one phone call or any emails from her. No follow up advice whatsoever. I wonder what happened? Did she meet with her discussion group? Who knows?

Now that I’ve given up the diet, it’s time to rethink the vitamins. I’m going to cut back to only the main ones. Magnesium, Potassium, Zinc, Selenium, Pantothenic Acid, the enzymes and the multivitamin. I’m going to stop taking the niacin just to see what happens. I’ve taken it everyday since I discovered the deficiency.

Today I looked up the suggestion from the nutritionist: Liver cleanse.

Why Use a Liver Strengthening Formula?

The health and vitality of every organ, gland, and cell are dependent upon the liver. Even our intelligence, attitudes, emotions and vitality are largely related to the liver. Our ability to repel disease or recover from disease is very much associated with this incredible organ. The liver, along with the heart and brain, are the most important organs in our bodies. However, even the heart and the brain are dependent on the liver. No one can be healthy without a strong, clean liver.

Notice: Live-er. The name itself gives us an idea of how important this organ really is. It is the largest gland in the body, weighing about 4 pounds. According to some doctors, at least 85% of the Western World’s population have sluggish livers. 100% of people with cancer, AIDS, diabetes, heart problems, yeast infections, digestive problems, parasites, etc., probably have liver problems. Every organ, gland and tissue is dependent upon the liver, and the liver depends upon the digestive tract.

How Liver Problems Originate

Physiologically, we develop liver weakness after we have abused our bodies by long-term eating of acid-forming foods, processed foods and other unhealthy foods. These include foods that are unnatural to the human body, like meat, sugar, white flour, white rice, foods cooked in oil, etc. Bad diet gradually weakens our digestive system, and do you know what organ takes the brunt of a bad diet? Yes, the Liver. All the food that is absorbed from our intestines goes directly to the liver, by way of the portal vein. The liver and bowels then must deal with all the harmful chemicals from the bad food. Food colorings, preservatives, heavy metals, fried oils, partially digested proteins, etc., all take their toll upon our precious liver and digestive system. It is for this reason, that cleansing the bowels is absolutely the most important treatment in helping to rejuvenate the liver.

FOODS & THINGS THAT ARE THE WORST FOR THE LIVER:

  • Heavy Metals
  • Cod-liver oil
  • Oils not cold pressed
  • Alcohol Meat and animal fats
  • Lack of exercise
  • Foods cooked in oil Margarine
  • Chemotherapy
  • Coffee
  • Pasteurized milk
  • White sugar
  • All drugs
  • Excessive fatigue
  • Vaccines
  • Tobacco
  • Over cooking
  • Salt-Sodium Chloride
  • Chlorine from water
  • Sodium Fluoride from water
  • Over eating
  • Cooked wheat – especially white bread
  • Constipation alternating with diarrhea
  • Medications and food chemicals
  • Pesticides found in commercially grown produce

Emotions Affect the Liver, Too

More than any other organ, the liver is affected by negative thoughts and feelings. Anger, resentment, fear, and all their emotional tributaries harm the liver more than anything else. With the exception of injury, 99% of all disease has an association with toxic waste settlement in conjunction with unconscious negative thoughts and feelings. This is why when people cleanse or take herbs to cleanse and strengthen the liver, strong emotions surface. These cleansing reactions must occur if we are to rid ourselves of the cause of our problems.

A Toxic Liver Leads to Disease

Every vein from the digestive tract empties into the liver, which filters out toxins and waste. The skin and lungs are the body’s first line of defense against toxins; the bowel is next, then the liver. When the bowel is overburdened with the wrong foods and/or negative emotions that cause physical stress and toxicity, the liver must work overtime to save the life of the body.

If the liver is unable to perform its full function, it will not only become even more toxic, but all the other organs are challenged. Prior to the first sign of disease, the effectiveness of the liver has been reduced. First come negative thoughts and feelings that affect hormonal and nerve function, then toxins related to mental/emotional stress or poor diet. These cause congestion and contamination, which prevent the proper flow of oxygen and nutrients to cells, and make the cells unable to rid themselves of waste. This cycle exacerbates an already weakened digestive system, toxic bowel and sluggish liver. In terms of physiology, this is the core of disease.

Tonight I met with the nutritionist. I had eleven pages of my lengthy health history in my hand as well as my diet diary from the past week. We sit down in her small office and begin.

I tell her that she has the best advantage of any doctor so far. For the first time, I have a summary of what every doctor has said and a detailed history of my symptoms, opinions, successes and failures. I hand her the diet diary and my health history. She briefly reviews my paperwork and she starts by asking me about my history and what each doctor had said.

Over the next two hours I explain everything in more detail going through my health history. She asks me questions along the way and explain further if I need to. This time, I didn’t leave anything out.

I talked about the internal vibration, blood tests, urine tests, Plantar Fasciitis, eating fruit, pinching on my face, stress, nerve tingling, suspected tapeworms, my wife’s pregnancy, suspected thyroid, experimentation with vitamins, the Colonoscopy and Gastrocopy, naturopath, vitamin C and Acidophilus, Hair Analysis Test, Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity, high blood pressure, Wendy Mesley, Hydro transmission towers, Acupuncture, Triglycerides, Niacin deficiency, alkaline stomach, microwaved food, Chiropractor, Wheatgrass, hormone test, iridology, myelin sheaths, magnesium, Osteopath, Romania, riboflavin injections, Neurologist, Anxiety, Paxil, Yeast Buster Kits, garlic, low potassium, stressed adrenals, and candida.

I explained about the hair analysis and how the naturopath said I didn’t show a magnesium deficiency in the results and I explained about how there is only one test that is considered accurate. The Blood Ionized Magnesium Test and I further explained that I never pursued it because you need to stop taking it for the results to be accurate. I didn’t see any point because it’s only going to tell me I have a deficiency and I know that already.

I made sure she understood the importance of taking it and how if I miss one does, I can notice a difference. She commented that the same thing applies for the vitamin/mineral testing. It requires no supplements for about three weeks for accuracy and there is no way I could do that. I could probably go without everything else except my magnesium.

Half way through, she explained that she was part of a discussion group and asked if I minded if she discussed by unusual case with other health professionals. She was quite interested and very serious about everything I mentioned. She suggested that I could have an electrolyte imbalance. After I finished, she said that what I had compiled was a fantastic wealth of information and that I had done a lot of research. She said I was very aware and knowledgeable about what was going on and asked me what I expected from her.

WOW! I was totally blown away. For the first time, instead of having someone lead me into a direction I didn’t want to go, I am being asked what I want. Very impressive.

So I said my long term supplementation with magnesium isn’t getting any better so there has to be a problem with a mineral co-factor and I suspect it could have a link with high sugar intake. I further explained about how stressed adrenals can cause a loss of potassium. She suggested doing a liver cleanse to support the adrenals and focus on body organs to support the rest of the body. This sounded great and not sure why this was never mentioned before.

She also mentioned Genestra again as being the “Rolls Royce” of vitamins and that you can only find it in health stores where they have an association with a naturopathic doctor or a type of certification.

She didn’t ask for any payment and didn’t make any suggestions regarding supplements. She finished the meeting by saying she didn’t want to suggest anything before talking to her discussion group and I was totally fine with that.

I’m meeting with the nutritionist tomorrow and I’ve decided to try one more thing before I meet with her. I was in the health food store and I came across colloidal silver in a spray format. I’d heard about it before and it wasn’t expensive so I’ll try it.

A friend of mine recommended colloidal silver last year before I was into these alternative “cures” and he had results in three days for a really bad cold. He swears by it.

Colloidal Silver

The intestines form perfect breeding grounds for candida. If the condition becomes bad enough, eventually the candida irritate an area of the intestine so much that their toxins penetrate the intestinal wall into the blood stream, where they can break down the immune system. Soon the candida infection itself passes through the intestinal wall and the white blood cells are consumed in their struggle to control the infection, further destroying the immune system.

Thus, candida is a common contributor to many diseases and conditions, such as AIDS, cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, colds, flus, etc.. Almost all disease and health problems are greatly aggravated by candida.

Candida can sometimes be controlled by increasing the acidity of the body, especially the area the yeast is growing in. This can be done by eating acid foods, such as vinaigrette salad dressings, and by applying vinegar mixed with water to the problem area.

The best antibiotic commonly used to treat this condition is Nystatin. But Nystatin is only marginally effective against yeast, and remember that the problems probably started with the use of antibiotics to begin with.

Normally the body can handle minor yeast infections. However, when the yeast reaches the infectious stage wherein it is poisoning the blood and the immune system grows weak, such infections as athlete’s foot, vaginal yeast infections, and fungus infections under the nails cannot be fought off.

A common treatment for the general infection is a diet completely free of all sugars, even fruit and starches along with taking Nystatin. However, anyone who has tried this treatment will tell you that this very strict diet is almost impossible to follow and does little more than keep the infection from proliferating.

The most effective tools against yeast infections of all kinds are acidophilus (yogurt), colloidal silver, and upper colonics. Combined, they can rid the body of yeast infections about as fast as the body can dispose of the toxins from dead cultures. However, disposing of these toxins can be a real problem, for two reasons. First of all, if the intestinal infection is killed off too sudden, it is possible for the intestines to become blocked. Obviously this can be serious and sometimes requires professional treatment to clear the bowels. Second, the body tends to dispose of toxins from the blood through the skin, which causes an itchy rash when the process is too fast. Toxins from dead spores can also strain the liver and kidneys.

Therefore, it is wise to take as much acidophilus as is convenient, but to build up the use of colloidal silver gradually, usually starting with four oz. of colloidal silver a day, of about ten parts per million, or the equivalent. This is usually increased by about one oz. per day until a breaking out appears or the conditions are relieved.

The colloidal silver provides a three-fold attack on the problems of candida. First, the colloidal silver kills off anaerobic bacteria and virii wherever it comes in contact with them. Therefore, the colloidal silver virtually provides a secondary immune system against all types of disease and infections, while treating the candida. Thus much of the problems of candida are treated immediately, before the candida can be cleaned out of the system. Second, colloidal silver is unusually effective in treating the candida infection itself. And third, colloidal silver has a strange and dynamic way of healing injured and damaged tissues fast. Since yeast infections of all kinds usually attack and consume the living tissue, a healing process is badly needed, and colloidal silver has a very unique way of healing these tissues fast.

Late in the afternoon, I receive a call from the nutritionist. She needs to reschedule the appointment from tonight to Thursday night. I’m only half way through my symptom history log so I could really use the extra time.

No problem. Let’s make it for Thursday.

I took the day off work today to prepare for my doctor’s appointment. I want to be fully prepared and organized so that nothing is missed. I spend the entire day documenting everything in a point form summary. Even in point form, I have 170 entries. I felt it was extremely important to detail everything. I’ve tried so many things, seen so many doctors and made my own discoveries, I’m giving the nutritionist everything in a complete package. It’s an advantage that no other doctor or health professional has viewed or asked about. This was my own initiative. Hopefully, it will have an impact.

Mar 01 2005 Treated our two cats for fleas
Mar 28 2005 Treated our two cats for tapeworm infection
May 12 2005 Walk-in Clinic for internal vibrations
May 14 2005 Blood and Urine test taken

May 28 2005 Follow up for test results: All normal. Blood pressure was high and RHOXAL-BISOPROLOL was prescribed.

May 31 2005 Tingling sensation on the left side of my body and very mild pinching sensation in my chest. Walk-in clinic: Stop taking medication.

Jun 08 2005 New family doctor: Suspected Thyroid or Diabetes
Jun 09 2005 Researched Thyroid and web site suggested eating fruit and vegetables. Started eating bananas, pears & peaches

Jun 20 2005 Complete Physical. Told him eating fruit stopped vibrations. Suggested eating one type per day to find best results.

Jun 28 2005 Follow up with Doctor for test results: All normal including the Thyroid. Told him Pears had the best effect when I eat three. He suggested it could be stress from my wife’s pregnancy. (5 months)

Jul 04 2005 Three weeks of eating fruit: Bananas made me feel ill, peaches had no effect and the pears? When I ate two to three pears a day, the vibrations stopped.

Jul 10 2005 I started having very weird pinching in my facial area and sometimes it was followed by a flush. Nothing dramatic, just one pinch and then nothing. Also had weird feeling on the very top of my head that felt like my nerve endings were twitching. I also started to notice that certain foods made me feel sick and I would feel bloated for a short time and then I’d feel fine the next day or after a warm bath.

Jul 15 2005 Noticed I would have three and four bowel movements within an hour timeframe. No diarrhea and no blood in the stool but it appeared very very small in size. Started food diary and recorded the frequency of bowel movements.

Jul 18 2005 Follow up with doctor. Told him about diet diary and ordered stool sample and ultrasound for abdominal pain and frequent bowel movements. Lost 8 lbs since last appt. and have loss of appetite. Suspected Colitis or Crohn’s disease.

Aug 01 2005 Around this time my wife and I are starting to buy things for the baby and for a while now I’ve noticed that I feel sick every time we go into the Toys R Us store on Thickson Road. I didn’t think much of it before now but it seems to happen every time we are in the store.

Aug 04 2005 Naturopathic Clinic: Suggested wheat intolerance and gave me ultra flora supplement, enzymes and told me to drink more water. Also suggested morning basal temperature for thyroid check.

Aug 10 2005 Follow up with doctor. I still have all of the weird symptoms. I feel tired and weak all of the time, don’t feel hungry, muscles spasms in my legs, muscles feel stiff, weird pressure pokes in my chest, face pinching with a flush sensation, a light tingling on top of my head that feels like nerve endings and of course the internal vibrations. Refers ,me to a gastro specialist.

Mar 22 2006 “For lunch I had a tuna sandwich with apple juice. Around two o’clock I start feeling lightheaded, I feel “”weird”” like something is going to happen and the internal vibrations are a bit stronger. I have a burning sensation in my chest and I notice that my mouth is dry. The only thing I’ve done differently is I didn’t drink as much water in the morning and I forgot to take my Vitamin C.”

Mar 22 2006 “Walk in clinic: Blood pressure: 130/80. Requested blood test “”CK, TSH, LDL and HDL”” ECG was taken and it showed abnormal. Sent to cardiologist for analysis.”
Mar 23 2006 Around noon I’m starting to feel the internal vibrations again. Although I don’t have any other symptoms, I get the feeling this is the start of the same thing that happened yesterday. I’ve known for a while that taking a Vitamin C will stop the vibrations so I take two 500 mg pills before going to lunch and it seemed to make a difference. Then I realize I’ve reduced my vitamin C intake to 1000 mg per day instead of 2500 mg.

Mar 25 2006 Blood pressure: 189/132.

Apr 25 2006 Blood pressure:137/90. Acupuncture regroup: Acidophilus settles my stomach, Eating pears will stop the vibrations, Vitamin C can effect the vibrations and get rid of the weird head symptoms. She says circulation has not improved after six weeks of cupping.

Apr 28 2006 My own research lead me to the parasympathetic nervous system and the link to cold hands and feet.Also mentions that the digestive tract may malfunction due to a lack of hydrochloric acid. One of the things that always makes me feel better is vitamin C which is asorbic acid and I need it in high doses for an Alkaline stomach.

Apr 29 2006 Discover Niacin deficiency and the relationship to the nervous system and the lack of hydrochloric acid. Also reduces blood pressure and increases blood flow.

Snack: Plain almonds, Rhubarb and Garlic

I still haven’t dropped off the health questionnaires but I will. I was somewhat disappointed that they wouldn’t just give me a B6 injection because I asked for one. When I saw the sign, I thought that I had struck gold. Now that I’ve had time to think about it, she is taking the right approach.

Here’s what Doctor Google found for me today:

Supplementing large amounts of single nutrients can also have a dramatic effect on mineral ratios, where for instance taking higher doses of Vitamin B6 on a long-term basis will ultimately result in a high magnesium / low calcium ratio. Injections of Vitamin B6 (usually combined with Vitamin B12) given at weight loss clinics affect calcium / magnesium ratios even faster, and if not matched to the individual’s nutritional requirements, can lead to a severe calcium deficiency with the usual variety of low calcium-related medical symptoms.

Finally, someone who is interested in optimum health and very cautious.

The nutritionist from last week left me a follow up voice mail. She wanted to know if I had made a decision regarding the treatment and I’ve been thinking a lot about it lately. I think a nutritionist would be a really great thing for me but I would want a condition.

I’ll contact her on the weekend and tell her that I will start the treatment with the condition that I have the option to quit if I am not happy with the food testing analysis from the naturopath. I don’t want the same results as the last naturopath telling me that I didn’t have a magnesium deficiency from the hair analysis.

And this time I will mark the questionaires with stars to indicate the symptoms that are being hidden by my current intake of vitamins and minerals. I will also document my entire history before I meet with anyone to ensure that nothing gets missed, including my issues with the EMF exposure.

Those are my conditions.

I’ll also tell her that I am still waiting for my B6 test result from my own doctor and will persue the injection through him if I am able to.

I met with the nutritionist tonight and her official title is “Registered Nutritional Consultant Certified Wellness and Lifestyle Coach”. Maybe this will be someone who understands my problem.

She introduced herself and showed me a pile of papers on the desk and explained each one. She wants me to complete a lifestyle assessment form, a questionaire on the different systems of the body and something she called a Nutritional Symptomology Profile where I entered a number value based on the symptom or activity. We didn’t really talk about my symptoms and that was a good thing. We would’ve been there a long time…

She recommended that I see a naturopath in Thornhill who would do a food sensitvity test and the results would be forwarded to her and along with the questionaires, she would put together an action plan over three two hour sessions for $225.00.

She said I can read everything over and take the holidays to decide if I wanted to pursue it.

I have a message on the answering machine and it’s the nutritionist. I return her call and I ask her about the vitamin B injections. She asks about my history and quickly she points out that I have a number of issues that need to be addressed and that a B injection would be a quick fix solution without getting to the root cause.

We talk briefly about candida and asks me if I’ve ever tried Olive Leaf. Nope, never heard of it. She also mentioned a vitamin company called Genestra. They make a supplement called “HMF Replete” that she highly recommened for candida.

She suggests that I visit a naturopath for a food sensitivity test and the results will be provided to her for analysis and she will do three follow up sessions. She agrees to meet with me tomorrow night after work so we’ll see what she has to say.
