You're lucky you quit taking those meds. Meds that suppress the P450 enzymes often cause the liver to slow and cause a buildup of toxins in the
body. These toxins destroy the mitochondria of the cells in the body after the protective layer is used up. This leads to less and less energy over
time. This also leads to weight gain because excess toxins get stored in fat cells because the liver cannot detox them. Here's an article
explaining that problem. psychrights.org...
If you read the article it tells of NAC, a supplement or medicine that helps to protect the liver from toxins. It is also a neuromodulator. NAC is
found in raw meats but if the temp goes over about a hundred twenty degrees it falls apart. If we cook our meats with some onion and garlic plus add
a little of some food containing nicotinic acid in it, basically adding a few drops of tobasco sauce, the chemical NAC forms in the soup itself. The
disulfide bond is what breaks when meat is cooked, if way overcooked the nitrogen falls off. Raw broccoli also contains NAC but there are a lot of
problems with eating raw broccoli as it is a goitinerogen because the Isotheocyanate attaches tightly to the site that iodine should be attaching to.
Isotheocyanate is also found in mustard, that is how it can stop muscle cramping but mustard doesn't have all the other problems that raw broccoli
It seems to me that if NAC is a neuromodulator and is good to control excessive stray voltage in the brain, such as in epilepsy, it could be used to
treate a lot of things.....cheaply. In todays world they say cook your meat well
So we don't get this chemical. Homeade chicken or beef soup can
have this chemical if done right. Restricting unnatural free glutamates is a must as is restricting aspertaimes. A little is alright but these
things are in everything. Natural occurring tyramines (bound glutamates) are better. These are slow acting modulators of happiness. Free glutamates
act fast and then we quickly crash. Bound glutamates keep us satisfied and social for hours. Aged or fermented foods make these chemicals. There
are charts on the net showing how much bound and free glutamates natural foods have. They are not evil, they regulate our happiness.
NAC is used for liver poisoning in the hospital. Silimaron, found in milk thistle or basicly any thistle in smaller amounts, is another chemical used
for protecting the liver. I don't know if Silimaron regulates brain chemistry but I know women at the coop who use it and they are nice and
There are a lot of natural things that treat diseases in this world. Diseases often are caused by diet, eating what we shouldn't eat or preparing it
wrong. We learned to neglect what our ancestors told us, instead following the conditioning taught to us by the medical and Pharma industries,
industries that profit by us being sick. There are a lot of good doctors but there are also many that desire their coworkers to stay employed. Most
doctors also have high expenses so that makes many of them turn a blind eye to helping us quickly. It makes our health insurances go up also,
unneeded tests and expensive meds being prescribed to support the many people working in the industry. Most doctors aren't greedy, it is quite the
opposite, they are too friendly with their coworkers. They have to supply a living to many people.
So, I can't even tell one other person what to eat, only advise them to open their mind and give them a little help as to what to try. These changes
aren't immediate most times but sometimes a mineral or vitamin or herb can be taken and instant relief can be felt. Some Glutamines also help you
heal, don't get those mixed up with glutamates. I am different than others, my personality is different and changing as I study and experiment on
myself trying to find how to possibly help others. You probably wouldn't even want to be exactly like me and I would not want to be exactly like
you. This difference in people makes the world interesting. I wouldn't want a million of me walking around, I like meeting people with fresh
