Summary of analogies used in methylation community: CEOs: Directs each corporation in organized steps
Supervisors: Enzymes such as MTHFRs, COMT, SHMT, and BHMT
Enzymes are proteins that are produced by living cells and regulate the body’s process to breakdown products, such as ammonia.
Employees: Chemicals, proteins, DNA, etc.
Work tags: Methyl groups (Homocysteine, SAM, Methionine) The Chain Gang: Homocysteine (HCY)
Synopsis of the Cycles
1). Power Plant = Citric Acid Cycle =
Formerly known as the Kreb’s cycle) Recognized as the mitochondrial or energy cycle
2). Garbage Dump (& Recycling) =
The urea cycle, ammonia cleanup & nitric oxide production (heart/blood vessel protection)
3). Better Health 4 Life Corp (BH4) = Communications “AT&T” & toxic waste cleanup Neurotalkers: Dopamine, Serotonin, & Norepi
4). SAM’s Corp. = Methionine Cycle =
The major producer of methyl donors and the passageway to the garbage dump (NOS) & liver via the CBS enzyme
5). Farmer Folate = Folate Cycle =
Homegrown” RNA & DNA, methyl groups and Homocysteine (HCY) regulation
The Meaning of Methylation
Methylation is truly a multi-tasking marvel that allows us to be “healthy and human.” Though this highly intricate process occurs within each cell as well as in the fluid supplying the brain and within the liver, it is responsible for the most vital undertakings throughout body chemistry. Methylation determines who we are, what we look like, and how we behave and it is central to our physical, emotional, and mental wellbeing. Without methylation, we could not survive; hence, it is the perfect pathway to focus on for understanding autoimmune ... ..more
STEP ONE: Layering in The Foundation
Knowing your Nervous system #dominance is an integral part in establishing the treatment process.
A). Remove or limit triggers:
Processed foods contain excitotoxins, dyes, and #toxic preservatives. It is also crucial to remove obvious food #allergies . Please see Resqua pages on #excitotoxins for more information. This is simply defined and discussed in detail.
B). Begin general support:
Provide a good foundation for your nervous system type and begin nutritional support. Though life threatening reactions would be extremely rare (and to my knowledge, unheard of), moving too quickly can result in more intense symptoms of ... ..more
Think “nervous, nimble and nightmares” with Nor-epi. This is due to nor-epinephrine’s #adrenalin effects on the body as the main “fight or flight” #neurotransmitter . It’s essential for action in order to ward off attackers and initiate battle or escape. When we encounter something frightening, such as the sound of someone in your house at 3am, your nervous system releases nor-epinephrine. Once tired, you’ll suddenly feel the need to spring into action! Your heart starts to pound and hearing and vision become extremely acute while muscles tighten for attack. Unless you panic, you’ll also have clearer ... ..more
Glutamate is the major excitatory #neurotransmitter and the most commonly found NT in the brain. It is required for #learning and #memory , however, an excess of #glutamate is actually toxic to brain cells and nerves. #LouGehrig’s is the most well known disease of glutamate excess but newer evidence reveals many other disorders may be related such as #Autism , #CFS, many #seizure disorders, #Migraines , #MS , and many more. Glutamate balances #GABA ’s calming effect.
High levels can cause nerve and brain cell death and injury through inflammation. High or imbalanced glutamate levels are clearly involved in many neurological diseases such ... ..more
