thanks for the respone. i am suffering from PSSD/ after SSRI use. its been 3 years. i have tried a few supplements and working out etc but so far no real progress. i have severe genital anesthesia. and ED. what do you recommend me to start from. what kinda blood test do you think i should do as a start to figure out the nutritional imbalances. i see you did some hair tests? @bruschi11
I like organic acids or nutreval to accompany the hair test.

Health. The only way to get there is health. I don't know what your symptoms are, but the best way of getting there is tidying up your health the best you can.
I think this is true of PFS in general. I've been following PFS forums for a while now, and it seems clear that there is no silver bullet treatment and that our best bet is leading a very healthy lifestyle - lots of exercise, healthy foods, plenty of sleep, intermittent fasting, saunas, cold showers, supplements, etc. None of these things are really specifically targeting PFS, but they help because they're part of a healthy lifestyle.

Interesting couple of weeks.

A couple days after xmas, I decided to give high dose molybdenum a shot. I had been taking 100mcg daily for the last 4 months as part of my balancing protocol, but had just began sodium molybdate and had come to the understanding how important moly is in this B2--->b12 thing.

Moly is responsible for converting FMN to FAD and I have been deficient in Moly in each hair test since my hydrogen crash. I've also read of moly's importance in making candida toxins essentially obsolete where they have no harm on the body. Normally they are very harmful.

So I loaded up on it. 300mcg-400mcg daily. The first day was incredible really. It was between xmas and New year's when I did this so there was some alcohol that got in my way, a lot of food. I had a fun week. I was just very glad how capable my body was of handling this extra stress. I'll be honest, I haven't responded this well to alcohol the day after since around 2013. So this was nice.

I do believe I overdid it though. I'm almost positive I moved into fast oxidation the last several days. I literally stopped feeling my vitamin and mineral doses, have all sorts of symptoms of high cortisol like can't sleep. It took awhile for this to happen but makes sense as molybdenum opposes calcium and copper.

I wonder if Dana will add copper to my program. We will be talking when I get hair test back. Hopefully by end of this week if not early next. I need to slow down somehow.

I finished treating SIBO with herbals and colloidal right around xmas after 7 weeks of it. I believe it was the right call to now move on and work on specifically body chemistry (HTMA while keeping along with building up the gut with gut drink, kefir/colostrum drink, good diet, and possibly will be adding probiotic enemas.

It just feels like that bacteria load is mostly gone and my gut is sterile and needs building up. My tongue still has some whiteness, but its refreshing knowing that @Aleksandr was able to get rid of white tongue with just help of Gut drink added to his HTMA work.

read a lot about molybdenum helping candida issues in molybdenum supplement reviews. Didn’t know that you never tried it.
I did also went above 1mg of it daily for a while. Just wanted to mention that maybe you should watch your sulfur levels then.
So does moly deplete sulfur? I could take some MSM or mention it to Dana.

Not telling you to take anything. I thought you are doing some protocol. so probably better stay at that.

maybe just keep it in mind if you are doing molybdenum for a longer period.

Or maybe read about it and decide for yourself :)

It didnt fully go away in the end, but it has reduced

I took some copper to stop the racing brain, fast oxidation this morning and it pretty much pulled me out of it immediately. I think its what I needed to balance out all the molybdenum I took the past couple weeks. From here, I'll resume the program I was on but lower molybdenum to 150-200 mcg daily.

No plans of continuing copper- brief chat with Dana today and she is not a supplemental copper advocate. Waiting on my hair test to do full appointment with her. I really want to see this hair test, I'm like salivating lol.

Bruschi, glad to see you’re making progress man.

You may already know this, but be careful with molybdenum if you think you might have Hydrogen Sulfide SIBO. Since I read that molybdenum Converts Sulfites to Sulfates in the gut, and that feeds Hydrogens Sulfide bacteria. I always get this reaction. I take Pepto when this happens since Bismuth will decreases Hydrogen Sulfide and kill the bacteria that makes it.

Interesting. I'll keep my eye out for this but gut is improving steadily. I've also backed my moly dose down to 150mcg daily for the time being. I think 150-200mcg will be has high as I go.

Iodine is tough. I took 2 drops today like 100mcg and sped up like crazy. It just detaches gut and brain.

I made a solid bowel movement after every meal yesterday on a day I just did my normal NB schedule w/ 150mcg moly and no iodine. I think I need to stop iodine completely.

Just thought of you when I read this today:

I wrote to GRJ last week to ask whether I should worry about the addition of molybdate negatively affecting my copper status (I have low serum copper, low copper on htma, below range ceruloplasmin). Here is his response:

GRJ: Stop reading FB.

I don't know where they got this copper idea from.

Copper comes in pretty much the same foods as iron and B12, and the ratios stay pretty much the same between copper and iron, which is sort of supportive.

You can though have copper that is not incorporated into ceruloplasmin due to low functional B2, so if you activated B2 by taking your RDA for Molybdenum your reading may be different, BUT, common sense tells you that taking the RDA for Molybdenum is actually the normal condition. Sometimes I wonder if common sense has become so rare that no-one even tries it as a first option.

Everyone should be taking their RDA of Molybdenum.

Regards,
Greg

Yes, we shouldn't need copper. I only used it to help with all the molybdenum that I took. This is supposed to fix ceruloplasmin which will make copper bioavailable. When you're stuck sick like us, you're likely getting copper toxic. We should have enough stored in our livers to last a lifetime combined with diet.

I think this protocol is very good. Mental sides and fatigue are slowly getting under control. No b12 yet, but with only b2 and co-factors, I'm doing very well.

The only problem is that I don't see hope for the sexual sides yet. Don't know if this protocol has the ability to help with this kind of symptoms, but with the other ones there is really something to it.
I was going to post over in that thread but I said I’d keep clear regarding @Helen ’s latest theories on it so others can just follow Greg’s work. And not have to listen to my blabbering lol. But I saw this post and had to react to it somewhere regarding improvements but none sexually.

Anyways, last night I had the Epsom salt thing in mind. I reacted very well to a bath on Sunday. It helped pulled me out of a rut left by excess molybdenum. So last night (Tuesday) I went and did a 45 minute Epsom salt bath with lots of Epsoms.

My system woke up strongly. But most notably, my libido has been DEAD since my little molybednum crash. And most noticeably after the bath last night my libido and sensitivity jumped drastically has carried onto today. Orgasmed twice last night and still horny today.

While b2–> FAD is gigantic for energy- as I witnessed from increasing molybdenum 2.5 weeks ago, b2’s affects on activating B6 via FNM and magnesium maybe the big factor here for GABA.

Pretty sure I'm coming out of CFS again after loading b2 yesterday dosing 200mg. Will slowly move down to 37-75 mg I believe. Will take a few days to come out of CFS and its dependent on my RNB protocol co-factor dosing along with HTMA protocol dosing. I think zinc is big here I must say. I'm slowly incorporating moly, iodine, and keeping with a steady dose of selenium 200mg.

The first signs for me when I come out of CFS are music clarity, sleep, and morning erections. All 3 began last night, this morning. Libido this time around came from magnesium bath which is nice to have with it. Also, light sensitivity lessening quite potently, playing video games last night with no blue blockers lol.

I got my hair test back the other day and still haven't posted it. Will make that priority for tomorrow.

I’ve attached two hair tests.

One, with the mega high magnesium, is from late December 2019 after a couple months of using heavy b2 quite a bit while running a balancing program with Dana Summers.

The second hair test is from when I was doing very well in February 2018.

My current state- Dana believes I’m losing both magnesium and calcium through the hair. She actually wants to keep feeding magnesium and calcium. The old me would’ve looked at this and thought she was crazy, but the majority of my symptom set screams “fast oxidizer” currently. I agree with her 100%.

We are now feeding boron and calcium d-glucarate while running similar program that I was on before. I love idea of boron as I fed it two years ago with success. It’s supposed to make the body hold onto magnesium and calcium I believe.

Also have been increasing riboflavin (b2) currently in accordance to Greg’s Facebook group where you should feed b2 until you are peeing yellow. On 100mg yesterday for the day, I barley peed yellow lol. So I think I’ll stick with higher dose for the next several days. Dana feeds R5P about 30-40mg daily, but she thinks with riboflavin you need to go higher.

What I’ve noticed in the hair test in early 2018, is sulfur and several supporting minerals on the lower part of hair test are all sufficient. While currently they are not. I believe sulfur is gigantic in this as @Helen explained over in the b2 thread specifically in dealing with major mercury toxicities like my own. I’ll be shooting for about 3 magnesium sulfate baths weekly along with liver flushes every two weeks.

I’m planning to start building up potassium and sodium while increasing vitamin c intake. I’m going low and slow with the b2 —> b12 co-factors currently. Only 1 drop of iodine daily and 50mcg of molybdenum currently hoping to work up to 100mcg.

Things have drastically improved in the last two days since loading b2 again. I was right... I drained way too much b2, FMN to FAD with the excessive moly use. A complete utter fuck up but an awesome learning experience to see how that pathway truly works.

Diet has shifted to fast oxidizer diet. Keeping carbs to a minimum. I’ve stopped oatmeal and cereal in the morning and shifted to omelettes or yogurts. Salads or bowls for lunch with beef for chicken. Some kefir/colostrum for a late afternoon snack (or before bed, sometimes don’t need the snack.) Dinners I’ll include some carbs like sweet potatoes, squash, rice to meat or fish w/ veggies. Snacking on some goat cheese at night. Will be looking to get back on some raw goat milk soon.

Realizing zincs importance on progesterone has a big affect on this b2 protocol. If we are getting the thyroid going, progesterone interacts with thyroid in the cortisol production line and sufficiency there i find extremely important based on my history and all I’ve learned dating back to Chilln’s theories I worked with in 2016 pre pfs.

That’s all for now. Exciting things to come. Can’t wait to go drive my car and listen to music. It sounds so nice right now. :)
