Re: Lipoic Acid & Elevated Liver Enzymes: Anyone Else?

Hi NHE, I just composed a whole PM to you listing what I take and some other questions, and then Saved Draft so I could look something up, and draft is gone. Dang. Anyway, I’m pretty confident that sugar consumption isn’t my Liver issue, and my serial blood tests seem directly tied to LA, not to the...

Lipoic Acid & Elevated Liver Enzymes: Anyone Else?

Hi everyone, Kira here. I’m going to share my experience on this and ask if anyone else has experienced the same? I started taking 1200 mg. Lipoic Acid in December when my neurologist recommended it, after he mentioned promising research results for MS. I looked at the Clinical Trial being done at O...

Re: Where does the time go?//For JimmyLegs.

Hi Jimmy, Kira here again. I’m going to take advantage of your generous agreement to take a quick look at my round of meds and supplements and make any comments about dosages and combos, as soon as I have a free moment. Didn’t want to blow off your offer of help, just have to have the time. Soon, an...

Re: Where does the time go? (9 years since my CIS)

Hey Jimmylegs, Kira here. Since you are so nutrients savvy, would you be willing to stream-of-consciousness share what combos you’ve learned are good and which ones are to be avoided? And which forms you prefer? For example, I never take my Mag with D3. Didn’t know about that. I take A LOT (thus, my...

Re: PQQ?

Hi NHE & Everyone Else: In your med and supplement list that you laid out in response to an earlier question of mine about your routing, you mention taking PQQ. Since I’m very interested in the mitochondrial dysfunction theory of MS, I just read whole PQQ thread. Which brand PQQ are you taking and h...

MitoLipin + Ray Peat + Phosphatidylcholine.

Hi everyone, I’m not sure I even understand what I’m asking here, but I do know I’m asking for you to weigh in if you have an opinion on this. I see the writings and works of Ray Peat mentioned on here, and I first bought his book “From PMS to Menopause” 20 years ago, before Coconut Oil became THE t...

Re: Lipoic Acid + Biotin + Naltrexone

Hi Jimmy, Kira here. To answer your question about Krebs/Citric Acid: My naturopath ordered the Urine Organic Acids Profile I mentioned, and many alternative labs have similar tests (Great Plains Labs, Metametrix, Doctor’s Data). The whole first section of results is about Carbohydrate Metabolism: T...

Re: Copaxone side effects; & Clemastine + Naltrexone.

Hi all, Thanks NHE, for sharing your protocol. Re: Clemastine: My neuro mentioned that to me in November when I last saw him, and I discovered that anti-cholinergic effect right away. I experienced cognitive symptoms for first time ever when I relapsed July 2016, so it’s not even an option I’m consi...

Re: Copaxone side effect??

Hi NHE, I read on this thread that you took Avonex for 10 years, declining Copaxone due to side effects. My neuro sent me home 4 months ago with the homework of researching C. And deciding whether I want to go on it when I see him next (which will be this Tuesday, 2/27). I’d already read many times ...

Re: Lipoic Acid + Biotin + Naltrexone

Hi NHE, Which Na-R-Lipoate are you using? Are you still using Doctor’s Best form that you mentioned awhile ago? Also, How much thiamine are you taking daily? I saw your January post re-posting links to a couple of journal articles on fatigue and thiamine, and Jimmylegs’ recap of high dose Thiamine a...

Re: Lipoic Acid + Biotin + Naltrexone

Hi again NHE, Kira here. I just re-read one of your older posts, from 2010, in which you pulled out info from the abstract that discusses the + and - of R vs. S. I realize I’m being a moron. There’s no reason why I should stubbornly insist on taking the Racemic form just because I already purchased ...

Re: Lipoic Acid + Biotin + Naltrexone

Do you take any of the other co-factors that feed what they call the Pyruvate Dehydrogenase Complex, as well? Do you take normal or supraphysiologic doses of Thiamine or CoQ10? As previously mentioned, my naturopath has tested my pee a bunch of times to look for energy deficits and Krebs Cycle malfu...
