Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for July 31, 2006

Was just reading about ways to protect yourself against cell phone radiation. Here are some supplements that help protect the body. No one has ever mentioned any of this despite my story about EMF exposure.

Microwave radiation has been shown to decrease levels of anti-oxidants in the body. These are substances the body produces to protect itself, and their levels are sensitive indicators in stress, aging, infections and various other disease states.

Take nutritional supplements, particularly anti-oxidants Superoxide Dismutase (SOD),  Catalase, Glutathione, and Coq10.

Other supplements you may need are:

Melatonin: a powerful anti-oxidant noted to prevent DNA breaks in brain cells. Also effective in preventing kidney damage from cell phones;

Zinc: protects the eye from oxidative damage and helps preserve the levels of anti-oxidants in the blood;

Gingko Biloba: an herb considered a powerful anti-oxidant which prevents oxidative damage in the brain, eye and kidney. Also helps support the production of SOD, catalase and glutathione;

Bilberry extract: preserves vision and reduces oxidative damage to the eyes.

Microwave radiation has been shown to decrease levels of anti-oxidants in the body and I had extremely high level of free radicals in my system. Another interesting connection? Riboflavin deficiency can cause high level of free radicals in the body.

In addition to producing energy for the body, riboflavin also works as an antioxidant by scavenging damaging particles in the body known as free radicals. These particles occur naturally in the body but can damage cell membranes, interact with genetic material, and possibly contribute to the aging process as well as the development of a number of health conditions such as heart disease and cancer. Antioxidants such as riboflavin can neutralize free radicals and may reduce or even help prevent some of the damage they cause.

Brain and Nervous System

General Health Information

The brain and nervous system act as the bodys electrical system communicating millions of messages every second. The brain is the command center and coordinates incoming and outgoing messages from all over the body. A healthy brain and nervous system enable us to cope well and respond appropriately to the countless stimuli we encounter daily. Our nervous system can become overloaded and begin to malfunction if we do not maintain it properly as well as filter excessive stimuli or stress.

An important factor to a healthy nervous system is the proper balance of the brain’s neurotransmitters (chemicals that transmit information from one nerve cell to another) such as dopamine, GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid), and serotonin.  A healthy nervous system allows us to handle lifes ups-and-downs smoothly, and to feel more emotionally balanced.  Exercise, stress-management techniques, proper nutrition and diet can help to better balance the brain’s intricate chemistry.

Several key nutrients are necessary to supply the chemicals responsible for the formation of the brain’s neurotransmitters, thus helping to balance brain chemistry. When taken on a daily basis, supplementation with certain amino acids, vitamins and minerals, antioxidants, and herbs helps us feel more mentally balanced and provides us with an overall sense of well-being.
