My Frontal Lobes!

August 16, 2022

Over last Friday (Aug 5,2022) night i gained function in my frontal lobes! What a relief! 

The previous 72 hours:

First, to try support my neutransmitters:

D-Phenylalanine and l-Tryptophan, 

then l-Serine, 

then l-lysine and l-Proline,

then, to try to support my Urea Cycle issues:

Urea (Ornithine) Cycle stuff (Ornithine, Arginine, Citrulline, Ornithine Aspartate, Ornithine Alpha Ketogluterate, Aspartic Acid, Nitric Oxide stuff, and, wrt my kidney function: herbal formulas to support my Kidneys and acetyl-carnitine (after doing some research, i found reference to carnitine deficiencies and poor kidney function).

Noteworthy: along with the research noted above I found reference to Hepatic Encephalopathy. I suspect I am so inflicted. 

Why? What I found is:

1: Ornithine-aspartate lowers serum ammonia levels through stimulation of the urea cycle and enhancement of urea formation. Note: I have repeated positive experience taking ornithine-aspartate.

2: l-Carnitine transports fatty acids across the mitochondrial membrane. This may be of value as a therapy as carnitine levels are low in Reye’s syndrome. Several therapies have been studied for the treatment hepatic encephalopathies, of which Reye’s syndrome is one form. Note: I have repeated positive experience taking ornithine-aspartate.

3: Branched-chain amino acids (BCAA) correct amino acids – the aromatic amino acid:branched-chain (BCAA)

amino acid ratio in plasma which may

ameliorate hepatic encephalopathy. Note: I have repeated positive experience taking ornithine-aspartate.
