Self-Hacking My Way To Mental And Emotional Health Using Complementary Alternative Medicine



Surfaces, Membranes and Methionine

February 19, 2016

Just yesterday (2/17/2016) I started a new herbal formula.  From Life Rising. Its called QXR-Lower Damp Heat.  Earlier this morning (2/18/2016) I awoke feeling like death.  I was going through a genuine healing crisis.  A few hours later (a few minutes ago) I awoke to having a mind-body connection/awareness of all the surfaces and membranes in my cranium and my lower body.  My remaining fog was gone.  Now I still have my dementia, short term memory loss, etc.  But – its a new day.

A short note with respect to the above.  My advances to my health often can be described as two steps forward and one step back. The above clarity of experience of my internal surfaces and membranes has worn off some but as of the time of this writing the increased clarity is still there.

Yesterday afternoon (2/18/2016) I took 7 grams of Methionine with my afternoon meal.  In the evening I went out to a movie and during the walk back I felt the Methionine in  my gut and I felt that I was absorbing and metabolizing it.  This is important, as Methionine is the most important source of sulphur, and its metabolism leads to many important other nutrients, such as Cysteine, N-Acetyl-Cysteine and Taurine.

In general I feel that I am really going to get there, to a state of optimum health, etc. I sometimes almost feel euphoric.
