Wish I could convince you to keep it on the board--there are a number of people here who are working with the natural/immune system approach that could benefit. I know that I am trying to work with mine and I know Shelli is planning on seeing a naturopathic doctor in DC. Everything is an experiment with an N of 1 here (I happen to believe that that is true of meds as well.) I am trying to beef up my intestinal flora. My naturalpathic doctor tested my aminos and I was deficient in a number of neurotransmitter precursors. She then prescribed a custom blend amino acid mix, but after taking it a few days my depression worsened significantly. Plus, I know that I eat enough proteins so there must be some reason why I am not assimilating them. She is interested in doing a mercury toxicity challenge with me. Perhaps we could start a thread on this topic here that is not an argument against meds (I take them and don't see an end to that in this other venture) but just an exploration of what alternative, immune or herbal approaches other folks are using and what seems to be working or not. By the way, I am even going to start working with a healer (which I suppose certifies me as either crazy or open minded depending on your approach).


I don't mind telling you, John, but why not e-mail me & I'll explain more. It's not some special brand of vitamins/minerals/herbs or anything like that, but I hate explaining much more here as it may sound like I'm some sort of nut to others. I can't even be sure if what I think may be the cause is actually the reason but what I've read suggests that it may be.

I don't seem to get much either, except occasional sinus infections and a chronically congested nose/throat. I still catch colds every once in a while, though most drug stores have that nose spray (Zicort or something along those lines) that has been proven to make them go away for me. I also take vit. c, vit. e, and all the B's. What do you recommend?
