I tried to up my dosage to 3/3 in last few days and things got completely out of control like the first time when I tried to take the full dosage.
Today I took cortison and some antihistamine which my doctor prescribed me.
Which is completely detrimental to ARL but it's probably the end of hair mineral balancing for me either way.
I have invested so much energy to get this to work.
It's not possible.
Maybe I will go down the route which @bruschi11 send me but I'm scared of antibiotics because the last time antibiotics made feel the worst and didn't help in any way.
I'm lost guys.
I don't know what to do.
wait why not just stay on the reduced dose , since you went higher dose and that didn’t work

I have slept on a grounding sheet for about 1 week now.
All my illnesses which are accompanied by huge oxidative stress (varicose veins, chronic rhinosinusitis) have improved. My mental energy seems to be a little bit better also.
Negative thing is that my fatigue has worsened and I'm very very depressed.
Could grounding lead to chelation of heavy metals?
@opiath Have you experienced negative similar things?

Taking 1 dosage of my ARL supplements pulled me out of my depressive state - amazing.
I wish I could them them regularly but I already feel like I'm getting sick from it again (took another one yesterday). Usually I do better in summer so maybe I will try to continue ARL next year.
I think I might be very low in copper or something which causes my depression...

I have decided to stop sleeping grounded. Depression is unbearable right now. I had a lot of improvements while sleeping grounded and I wish I could continue. But it is not worth it when I become this depressed and - actually feeling this sad.

All of my friends and colleagues use stuff to get through the day and I can't use any of these:
- Coffee: I get hectic, hot, sweat profusely, brain fog, huge anxiety.
- Sugar: To much oxidative stress, everything gets worse
- Alcohol: Same as sugar but worse
- Nicotine: Feel horrible, I think I am already high in acetylcholine. Ate portuguese sardines yesterday and felt horrible afterwards.

I try to take my ARL supplements here and there. I think it increases dopamine or something. I feel a little bit better in terms of mood. But of course worse in many other ways. My temperature drops and I feel very cold for 1 - 2 days. Might be the copper idk.

I'm stuck. I don't know what to do besides waiting for summer.
If somebody see something what I have overlooked please let me know.

Maybe try forcing the ARL supps full dosage for a 1 month as a test to see if you improve after going through deep depression.

Or drop ARL and try that B2 protocol.

Your depression sounds like high acetycholine.
It's screwing up your serotonin. Either by draining tryptophan (Acetylcholinesterase) or by slowing ventilation. Probably both.
Maybe ARLs purpose is to feed some other mineral after they induce hypoventilation (zinc?).
If you take copper in this case you're killing serotonin more and increasing adrenaline.
I don't know what you're missing. Just making guesses.

Thanks for the comments guys.
Maybe I should lower my intake of choline then...

I think I will send in my hair to ARL again just to see what has happened. Maybe I'm in a different body chemistry now or maybe it will give me some clue.
At least I will have some hope...

I have taken cortisone and an antihistamine about 6 weeks ago. I hope this won't fuck up my hair test.

I think it is IDO enzyme which uses up tryptophan. It is because I have chronic viral infection.
Low tryptophan, low serotonin, high acetylcholine.
Then nitric oxide should go up, no? @Helen
This should kill the virus, right?
What is missing here?
Am I low in arginine?

Try to cut it as close as possible to the scalp.

Depression subsided over the last days. It's excess acetylcholine for sure.
I just tested it with some lecithin. Nearly instant depression.
I didn't react to choline this strongly in the past. A year ago I used to eat sardines here and there and I liked them.

This tells me I'm in a different body chemistry right now. I guess my acetylcholine increased during this cycle.
Is this due to increased manganese?

I have to do another hair test.
I took cortison and antihistamine on 22th of november. After that I have been at the barber to cut my hair. Now I have to get a hair cut again so my hair are growing fairly quick. I guess it won't be visible in my hair anymore if I cut them now as close as possible to the scalp.

I have sent in my hair. I hope to get the result this year.
Although I tried to limit my choline intake, I still feel depressed most of the time. Not as deeply depressed as I felt when I have eaten those damn sardines but still it is not a good way to live.
Only thing which helps a little bit is coffee. I don't tolerate coffee at all. It completely disturbes my sleep pattern. Anxiety is higher etc. but side effects get a little less pronounced when I add fat (bulletproof coffee). And as I said it is the only thing which gives me a little bit of relieve from this depressive state.

I hope something shows up on the hair test. And all this things are part of a progress.

My signature is up to date. So it will be my fourth one.
I'm not pfs.
Honestly the only thing which got better is my overall energy. I don't crash anymore. But none of my specific symptoms improved significantly.
I fear I have still a long way to go.
I have a lot of sexual symptoms like most guys here as well which I don't talk about. But I have always been this way. Never had the urge to do it more than once a day. Not even in my teens. Always had some kind of ED, POIS etc.
Either I'm forced into this body chemistry, which looks fairly okay on hair test, and there are huge imbalances hiding under it which are not visible yet OR this whole hair test paradigm is an insufficient mapping of reality. At least for me.

I can't wait for my new hair test. I think ARL manoeuvred me it this place of depression and being pissed all the time.
It sucks.
Being pissed usually indicates increased Na/K ratio for me.
Depression probably because of high acetycholine.
I would really like to know why I have all this problems in the first place.
Why is NOX upregulated? Because I have an infection.
Why do I have an infection? NOX is more like a backup solution right? It's clear my nitric oxide system doesn't work (see ED, see viral infection).
Why does my nitric oxide system not work?
I thought about trying l-arginine...

But it's probably some heavy metal intoxication I guess. My selenium is so low. Is it used up to clear out some intoxication?
I don't enjoy anything at the moment.
I just write all this to get it off my chest honestly.
It fucking sucks.

Recently I read a post from someone with similar issues like me and he/she used LDN (low dose naltrexone) to recover from most of his issues.
Until today I avoided hard drugs like opiates but since nothing seems to work on me maybe this is worth a try.
I'm seriously considering to try this.

Still waiting for my hair test. I usually have to wait for 2-3 weeks to get the results LOL.
It's all fucked up.

I have ordered the LDN from buyldn.com. Let's see if it gets through the customs.

When I get my hair test result I will first check if it looks correctly. If potassium has increased then its probably wrong and still influenced by cortison usage (ARL gave me supplements to lower potassium).
If hair test looks correctly I will do another cycle as long as they don't give me the same stuff as before.
I really hope they don't give me any manganese at all because the acetylcholine kills me.

If the give me again some acetylcholine raising stuff I will go on LDN to get rid of the infections... In case the clowns let me import it ofc.
