Update.

2+ years med free.

I'm doing amazingly well. Here is an update on my current regimen.


1. Niacin 1,000 mg, b complex 50 mg, vitmain c 1000 mg 3x per day
Blood work: uric acid, liver function panel

2. Vitamin D 10,000 IU per day, combined with regular sun exposure following Dr. Hollicks "sensible sun exposure" recommendations
25-OH-D, 50-80 ng/mL range

3. 1.5-2.5 teaspoons of (unrefined) salt daily (to turn off/reduce the body's aldosterone (a sodium preserving hormoone) production

4. Iodine, Lugol's 2%, 20 drops per day
Full thyroid panel

5. Probiotics - glutathione producing (Regactiv), soil microorganisms (NOW Probiotic Defense)

6. Exercise


All blood work every 3-6 months. You should check with your health insurance first to make sure it's covered. Second be excessively nice to your doctor and nicely pushy to "encourage" them to order it. Or find another doctor.


That's the important stuff, I've also been eating a raw diet. Lot's of veggies, fruits, generous amounts of raw eggs, pastured/grass fed meats, wild fish, and of course lots of animal fats.

Other less important stuff

Magnesium chloride about 700 mg per day
Fermented cod liver oil
1000 mg methylfolate


I'm sorry if I've been harsh, rude, disrespectful. Thank you for your help. As you can imagine it's been incredibly complicated going through so much research to optimize my regimen. Sometimes it could be frustrating, however I've gotten through it gracefully and in one piece. Again, sorry if I've been inappropriate.

I've been ingesting on average about 2 teaspoons daily of unrefined salt.

I decided I'm going to slowly increase my intake. I've noticed that schizophrenics tend to need abnormally large doses of nutrients, and as such have decided to increase my salt intake from 2 teaspoons per day to 3-5 teaspoons per day.

I've been maintaining 3 teaspoons of salt daily, however I'm considering ingesting it separate from the food I ingest, mono eating. In essence, being slowly swayed to entertain the significant probability that there's more relevance to 'instincto' type eating than I initially believed... I'll be experimenting with eating my food and salt separate, since recently, after eating many raw egg yolks with salt, I realized without salt it tasted bland (cardboard like, despite being dark yellow summer yolks). So I'll be experimenting with eating in a mono fashion.

I've also adjusted my Vitamin A:Vitamin D ratio. I read an article on the WPF about the optimal ratio being 4-8 parts Vitamin A to 1 part Vitamin D. I'm slowly working my way up, so I'm taking a maintenance dose of Vitamin D of 9,000 IU. And I'm taking a supplement of 10,000 IU/pill Vitamin A and slowly increasing my dosage slowly (I don't want to detox harshly, Vitamin A being an extremely important nutrient) till I reach about a 6-8:1 ratio of A:D from supplements and food only, then I'll get some more D occasionally from sun.

I'll likely be taking about 60,000-70,000 IU Vitamin A daily, in sync with appropriate amounts of Vitamin D for an appropriate ratio. The combination of both in appropriate amounts reducing the overall risk of toxicity according to The WPF.



"They also point out that rat studies showing that vitamin A is toxic and antagonizes the effects of vitamin D used much higher ratios, ranging from 5,000 to 55,000!"
http://www.westonaprice.org/health-topics/update-on-vitamins-a-and-d/

"Chronic toxicity in older children and adults usually develops after doses of > 30,000 RAE (> 100,000 IU)/day have been taken for months"
https://www.merckmanuals.com/professional/nutritional-disorders/vitamin-deficiency,-dependency,-and-toxicity/vitamin-a

"In adults, taking 1250 ?g (50,000 IU)/day for several months can cause toxicity."

Ok update time!

So I'm taking 70,000 IU Vitamin A (10,000 IU FCLO, 60,000 IU supplement), and 9,000 IU D3 (7,000 IU supplement, 2,000 IU FCLO). I also get sun. Not including sun, I have about a 7.7:1 A:D ratio.When I get sun it probably gets closer to 4:1.

I believe the A:D ratio to be one of those important things for health. Who knows though right?

So I've been tweaking my A:D ratio. I currently keep my ratio 4:1 from supplements and food. 35,000 IU A supplement (NOW fish liver oil extract, 25,000 IU and 10,000 IU), 10,000 IU D3 (NOW brand), 5,000 IU from grass fed beef liver daily, and 1/2 teaspoon FCLO (5,000 IU A, 1,000 IU D). This doesn't include what I get from sun and beta carotene in veggies, fruit, etc. Totaling about 45,000 IU A, and 11,000 IU D from supplements, liver and FCLO, for about a 4:1 ratio.

I'm utilizing unrefined salt, about 1.5-3.0 teaspoons daily. And I'm combining it with 10 drops of Lugol's 2% solution (about 2.5 mg/drop, 25 mg total daily).

In an attempt to heal tooth decay, I'm going to try Blue Ice's High Vitamin Butter Oil.


ps. I'm still taking Dr. Hoffer's recommended supplements (niacin, b complex, vitamin C, etc.)

Thanks. I think that should do the trick.

Hi Le Patron,
Glad to read your update and success! Was curious what you are using these days as a water formula. I tried the blue drops on their own before and got a stomach upset. I think this was complicated by drinking green juice before. I want to come back to it again, sans juice.
Thanks
Celeste

Hey there. I'm drinking spring water. I use distilled water when taking my Lugol's solution or magnesium chloride solution (1 glass 3x a day, breakfast 25 mg Lugol's with 1 tsp magnesium chloride, lunch 1 tsp magnesium chloride, and dinner like 5 tsp magnesium chloride). If I only have distilled water and not spring then I might make a few gallons and add like 1/8 tsp potassium chloride and a little magnesium chloride.

Experiments with Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 has inactive and active forms.

Methylcobalamin, hydroxocobalamin, and adensylcobalamin are active forms.

Methyl can be converted into both.

However some have less than optimal conversion. Hydroxo apparently detoxes the brain, and adensyl plays a part in energy.

I'm trying out taking about 1/2 mg daily of each.

I've never been able to eat very low carb without getting extremely irritable and borderline "airheaded." I was actually able to eat an almost no carb diet since trying the adenosyl and hydroxo b12 combination.

I've been maintaining my A:D ratio at appropriately 7:1.

I take about 70,000 IU A, and 10,000 IU D from supplements, and 5,000 IU A and 1,000 IU D from FCLO.  For a total of about 75,000 IU A and 11,000 IU D, about a 6.81 ratio not including food and sun.

My goal is to maintain a 4:1 to 8:1 ratio.  Sun D lasts about twice as long as supplement and food D.  So with my ratios and amounts how they are I'd need to get about 4,000 IU D from sun daily to get to 4:1, ensuring my ratio stays within a 4:1 to 8:1 ratio.


I'm getting about 2-3 teaspoons of salt daily (any variety, Real Salt, Celtic, etc.)

I've noticed modifying my ratio has made a significant difference in a lot of ways, cognitive and more.

My advice for anyone interested in modifying their ratios is to look into how much D they produce from sun (and remember sun D counts for twice supplement and food D).
Look into how much Vitamin A you get (not from carotenes/veggies, but from animal foods, formed retinol).
Balance your amount to get your ratio closer to 8:1 without going over, with the amount you get from sun bringing it closer to 5:1-6:1.


More info on the Vitamin A and D ratio can be found at The Weston Price Foundation and by googling Dr. Linday.
