Wow. I'm glad I checked out this thread. This has helped me understand a little bit more about detoxification. I have really just glanced over some stuff, though. At any rate, I'm understanding a bit more about the supps my chiro wants me to take.
I took a functional metabolic test that measured detox pathways (well, measured chemicals linked to them), cellular energy, neural function, bacteria, fatty acids, and B vitamin insufficiency. I was definitely B-vit deficient, my trans-fatty acids are high
, I have too much acidopholus, and my something is up with my sulfate pathway. (OK, I checked out WhoMe's link about detox pathways last night and am at a different computer..can't look back at it for proper verbiage.) And I have that leaky gut going on of course.
So, I am taking L-Glutamine, a B complex, Betaine HCl, and enzymes, so far. My pendulum told me I ned a calcium supp, so I got that too. Next to introduce (and these are the iffy ones due to a soy ingredient or chelation issues) are NAC, a lipoic acid supp, a whole-food multi, and CoQ10. My pendulum tells me the LA and the NAC will be safe for me to take while BFing DS (he's 17 months) and my chiro's wife, an LC, has researched these and feels comfortable with me taking them. I do consult my crystal in the order to intro the supps, I think I'm to start the NAC Saturday. I'm going pretty slowly with the introductions. I started the CoQ10 the other day but the next day the pendulum told me to stop taking it. I think the soy in it caused a reaction in both me and DS (we're both IgG sensitive), and I admit I had been eating a little chocolate each day. Cumulative reaction perhaps?
Oh, and my pendulum says that I am having problems processing zinc. I need to go back and read what has been said about that. Last time I ate beets, many moons ago, I did have the pink pee I think. I can't piece the info together...this is the Panserbjorne, hold my hand thread, right?
Anyway, I have been meaning to post the results of the testing but never got around to it and this seemed the right place, what with the talk about detox pathways.
Sorry if this is rambly. Off to bed!
