I saw improvement but only in talking, i talked alot more but memory and cognitive skills were still lacking. So you are taking tyrosine at the moment you mean, right? I have also ordered free form L-tyrosine of Source Naturals, a while back, but until now I have only tried to take a few tablets a few times and haven't tried it anymore yet. I believe it should at least be taken for a few days in a row and in sufficient dosages for it to be effective. It might help me, since it's known to be a precursor to dopamine, noradrenaline, adrenaline and thyroid hormones and tests showed deficiencies of noradrenaline, adrenaline and T3. I'm curious to know if it helps you.

I did not intend to make my success in curing POIS come across easy sinceIt definetly was not easy.I was the impatient type and wanted to be cured quicklyand often tried to do too much all at once.I found out from good and bad experiences and from mistakes,it is best to fully research and understand what is going on in yourbody before even supplementing, especially if it is hormones.Use the results from your own data and research scientific studies and ask others who havehad the same problems and have improved their health.Keep monitoring your levels and adjust accordlingly and also go by symptoms as well.The more tests you can get done the quicker you can find out whatis wrong and the quicker you can be treated which will enableyou to feel better sooner than later.Your welcome Girlwind I am just going from my experience.Michael
Girlwind: Life Entension has sublingual DHEA 25mg. LEF.org or Life Extension.com. They also have some blood testing.
I have checked it and the supplement that I've gotten prescribed isn't glutathione, but L-glutamine, which is a precursor to glutathione.
I everyone i went to urologist to get test, he could only check for prolactin and testosterone but the good news is, when he saw the waldingers paper and ny times article and micheal's story there is no way he could tell me it is psychological.
I thought cortisol is a stress hormone. But it's not so easy : cortisol can be seen as anti-stress hormone too.Some studies show supplementations of glucocorticoids help people with phobias :http://www.news-medical.net/?id=16967The depletion of cortisol is the real state of stress.http://www.cuvillier.de/flycms/de/html/30/-UickI3zKPSj3cUk=/Buchdetails.htmlQuoteCortisone treatment significantly reduced anxiety levels by 37% in patients suffering from social phobia, as compared to placebo treatment and further significantly decreased heart rate reactivity.

It has worked WONDERS for me in helping remove some of the heavy metals in my body--arsenic and uranium in particular. I also took PCA-Rx for heavy metal detox., which has been very helpful as well.Whereas L-glutamine, as I've used it, has had anti-inflammatory properties, particularly for the gut. I used to have problems with leaky gut syndrome, due to candida issues, and L-glutamine was awesome in helping resolve that. I had to take it religiously every morning and evening on an empty stomach (very important, or it will be digested as protein) for 6 months to completely heal the leaky gut. I still take it now when I have gut aggravations. For me, it has been a very helpful and easysupplement to take.
Hey Girlwind, OK, I have gotten prescribed an orthomolecular medicine for liver detoxification called Ultra Clear Plus and I've looked at the ingredients and it indeed contains n-acetyl cysteine.I believe that I've gotten L-glutamine prescribed because of a deficiency of methione, glutathione, poor methylation and to support detoxification.I haven't taken either of them yet, although I do have them here, by the way.
Quote from: martin88 on 29/01/2009 03:19:54[...]To remove your mercury, not all dentists have the right equipment to do this. (Maybe you know this already..) Take someone who is qualified and who have the required material (expensive). Otherwise you can do more harm than good. Thank you for reminding me for this, I have also received your PM about it. I have thought about making an appointment with a dentist that is specialized in removing mercury amalgam fillings, but in the end I have chosen to make the appointment with my own dentist, for the beginning of march. But I have asked him to take extra precautions to limit the risks involved regarding the mercury. I have asked him to make use of the Scania Dental Clean Up (1), which is some kind of vacuum cleaning device that should be placed around the tooth, and a rubber dam (cofferdam). I have also asked him to clean any residues of amalgam, that are left over after the fillings have been removed. I hope that this is enough, what do you think, do you have any other suggestions?(1) http://www.xs4all.nl/~stgvisie/AMALGAM/NL/cleanup.htm

Re: Michael and hormone rebalancing.You are lucky to have an understanding and cluey doctor. From the sounds of it you doctor shopped. Was the guy you ended up with an endo? From your outcome, it would seem that POIS is not caused by just one defective bio-chemical but by a number of defective hormones/neurotransmitters/enzymes, which is why it is proving elusive in mapping it to just one compound and why symptoms differ across the forum members as they would differing results to varying degrees or even other bio irregularities.
[Michael's] POIS is not caused by just one defective bio-chemical but by a number of defective hormones/neurotransmitters/enzymes, which is why it is proving elusive in mapping it to just one compound
To what extent am I naturally adjusting to the changes as I go in the right direction, or will I be required to make a decision to alter the ingredients? It makes you a bit neurotic.
