EU residents and supps

I was looking at a web site this morning about using natural products for cleaning, get rid of all those chemicals and expensive store products and use cheap natural things instead, you know the routine, anyway, whilst trotting around the site I came across something I've not heard about before and I suspect many of you won't have either.

I suggest you have a read of this< as it may cause us all sorts of problems with our supplements and future access to them.


Questions About Mutations in Vitamin D Receptors

When I received my results from the Yasko methylation test I noticed mutations in the VDR FOK. Did this mean that I was not able to use D completely due to this mutation?

I just found some interesting info on the Yasko site about this. She compares the VDRs to "fishing poles"--with a mutation they are less efficient at their job and said if there is more D in the system (fish) the receptors should be able to "catch" more. She also says that carnosic acid (from rosemary) may help the VDR receptors increase. <


Found a great place to get supplementsi for good prices.. please give me some feed back on other cheap and great places to get supps.


Fiber, dietary fiber.  I would like to explore a topic on how you get it into you food and supplement plan.  I have been adverse to the orange popsicle flavored metamucil-like formulations, yes they work that may be true.  Yes, they may be the cheapest to purchase, that may be a key point well taken so I will say it for a start.  Jim mentioned mixing moppers with it recently.  Something that I had not thought of really.  And I have not tried that but......   I did begin to think seriously about adding psyllium to my day in some way.  It took me a couple of weeks to move on it and I have found a brand that is palitable to me.  Comes in plain and 3 flavors (I have tried peach so far as the store did not have plain in stock at this time.)

Butyrate as a detox aid

Has anyone tried Butyrate as a supplement to help clear fat-soluble toxins from the body? Apparently butyrate is a fat-soluble nutrient that helps to sweep the liver, biliary tree and gastrointestinal tract free of fat-soluble toxins. It is also an anti-inflammatory that detoxifies ammonia and neurotoxins. 

I tried butyrate a few years ago when I did the E-lyte detox program for CFSi. Since I've got an unopened bottle left, I thought I'd try it with my next Flagyli pulse. If anyone has got any opinions, it would be appreciated. Thanks!

Calcium Citrate sources for ordering powder form capsules?

I have changed to Calcium Citrate 3000mg per day on the advice of my MD. 

I was taking another formulation of calcium prior to starting with this MD and the prespective is that Calcium citrate is more easily absorbed.   

Locally I find it but the 1000mg dosage is in tablet form.   Odd as it may seem for me capsules are easier on my stomach with these large sized supplementsi.   

If you order by phone or by internet,  from a particular distributor that has capsules in this higher dosage format and you have had good service, at a good price I would really appreciate a few links to sources.  

Introducing Lysine

Hi Guys,

I was wondering if anyone could help me out here. I bought some Lysine today to introduce into my protocol, after reading the back I see it containes Sulphites(which I am allergic) Is this naturally occuring or due to something in the filler?



Is there a concern taking Glucose about blood sugar, and feeding the bad bacteria in the body that love sugar?

And generally all the bad things associated with sugar?


Is there a best way to take? Someone mentioned taking just before the FIRi sauna?

Binder that is working well

Chlorophyll<I've been taking Chlorophyll with Alfalfa for about 2 months. It has done very well as a binder. It seems to reduce enterohepatic toxicity well and doesn't seem to have a downside like I've experienced with Charcoal, Chlorella and Psyllium (which seemed to remove things I needed).

18 Months on CAP

Dec 24, 2008 marks the completion of my 18th month of treatment.  I am antibody positive for CPni and Bb.  I started treatment on bacteriocidal level of Doxycycline 400 mg/day for almost 4 months before cutting back to 100 mg BID and adding Roxithromycin 150mg BIDi daily.  Those first 4 months were incapacitating and perhaps advantagious it is water under the bridge and I would not recommend it to others. 

Which of the CAP supplements are anti-cpn?

As we are trying to reduce the porphyia load that Paula is currently suffering, we are also cutting down on the supplementsi.

Does anyone know which of the supplements on the CAPi list are anti-cpni?

I understand that Quercetin, Vitamin Di, Alpha Lipoic Acid">i are, which I have cut out.  Which other ones are?

What about ones that aren't on the list like Chlorella and Tumeric?

Thanks in advance,


Second Month on Mino about done.

First of all ... I do not know why I ever complained about not sweating! I had daily & nightly fevers in Sept. Sweating was the way of my existence and drinking water was all I could think about as my thirst was so great. This past month the fevers are letting up. I only sweat a few hours a day usually after dinner or during the night. Occaisonally now I skip a day or maybe two or three at the most. Just when I think the fevers and sweats are going I get hit again. So this has caused me to stay home indoors a lot the past couple months cause my nap time is definitely therapeutic. By afternoon I am drained. However, I jump at the chance and have managed to drive two or three days during the good hours of my better days. Otherwise I think I would go stir crazy.

Cats Claw and Germanium

I have been taking Cats Claw Cat's Claw<and doing better while experiencing increased die off. I am using charcoal and Apple Pectin as binders to help clear the toxins and alleviate the "feeling like crap" part. The Cats Claw is suprisingly also helping me sleep. I am taking one capi in the morning and one before bed.

Need help for my sister. Why CPn test POS and then NEG?

I've written about my sister before.  She asked to be tested for CPni at Cleveland clinic and came back positive, something like 1/125 or close to that.  Cleveland Clinic asked her if she wanted to be treated with 1 abxi for a few weeks. 

She has lung and sinus problemsi, fibromyalgiai, fatigue and serious heart and vein problems and inflammationi.  Basically the falling apart syndrome.  I tried to get her started on CAPi, but she didn't follow through, claiming she didn't have time to get sick.  She did take NACi for awhile.  Now she is really sick, with pretty bad heart problems.  She has been diagnosed with everything under the sun over the years, but then they always end up changing their minds and saying it probably isn't what they thought it was.
