Alyce's Optimal Journal

Discussion in 'My Optimal Journal' started by Alyce Miles OD, Dec 1, 2018.

  1. Age: 43
    Weight 159lbs
    Health issues in past : depression, mood and pain

    Grandmother lived in Colorado lived until 88 years old. Hit head at 85. No health problems except for arthritis to which she never complained of. I do believe she had a bipolar disorder.

    Mother born 1946-1994. She developed inflammatory breast cancer at 43. Prior chronic sinus infections, GI issues, extreme light sensitivity and she didn't go outside after children were born as I recall.

    Sister got ovarian stem cell cancer at 12yo in 1989. Still living but with anxiety
    Brother alcoholic and mood disorder.

    Started going outside in March 2018. Have no sunburns and gradually introduced sun. Added CT in June/July. Currently take cold showers 55-60degrees every day and some soaking in tub with those temperatures two times a week. Added DHA to diet June also. Grounding outside walk barefoot as much as possible.

    Recently I realized I gave my screwed up mitochondria to child (7 years old). I pulled him out of school to home school and he has had marked improvement. We unplugged the router and do not use wifi. It makes him "hot" as he says. Jackson's skin temperature on his back gets hot and his cheeks and nose get red when we are around wifi. I am adding as much DHA to Jackson as I can as he will eat it sometimes.

    My haplotype is K1b2a
    I live in Memphis.

    I also have lived in New Orleans and Macon GA. Both places my mood improved. We are planning to move out of Memphis due to 5G and my sensitivity to light cycles.

    With that history your SNP's and SAPs would be key. I bet you have a few -/- on your genetic genie. You might want to get the testing done
  3. Genetic genie

    COMT V158M AA +|+
    COMT H62H TT +|+
    COMT P199p AG +|-
    VDR Taq AA +|+
    MTHFR C677T AA +|+
    CBS C699T AA +|+

    All others were negative or "not found/genotype"

    What blood work should I get?

    You have just got important bread crumb.
    Say thank you very much.
    And answer the question:
    Do you have any:


    In my case that would be:

  5. I do not understand the significance of -/- in the profile generated by Genetic Genie. I misunderstood the reporting as negative meaning no defect. I would like to learn this please. Thanks

  6. I made one mistake

    CYP 2C9*3 A1075C should read rs1057910 and it is AA-/-
  7. Since starting protocols of Light, Magnetism and Water (and Food)

    90-120 minutes of cold showers per week (best estimate) Some full immersion when time allows.

    Sleep: So much improved -- had insomnia 17 years on and off. Now I sleep almost as well as I did in 20's.
    Chronic pain in upper back 5 years: nearly gone
    Numbness in right shoulder 5 years : nearly gone (has flared up a little since winter set in cold helps)
    Coffee: Now I think it is nasty cannot even stand taste. Used to love it. Don't need it -- I wake up refreshed
    Cold hands and feet (winter): still cannot shake this although this summer I couldn't have my feet in cold without pain now cold showers don't cause pain.
    Skin: Age spots disappeared and it changed before my eyes-- freckles --dissappearing
    Hair: Thicker/ shiny
    Periods: Cramps disappeared
    Libido: Changed dramatically
    Dreaming: Hadn't had dreams in 20 years. Now they are vivid and occur several times a week
    Dry Eyes: Gone
    Red Eyes: Gone
    Mood: So much improved although I need more sunlight and D3 must change where I live
    Appetite: Carb cravings almost gone (unless I slip up and eat carbs). Currently eating 2 meals per day and feel satiated.
    Body structure: Changed and looks like mid 20's. Fat has changed location hour glass shape reappearing, lost fat around midsection and gluts.
    Vision: Used to be -4.25 and prescription has decreased to -3.25
    Sciatic pain: almost gone (Purple light helps it to go away--)
    Acne: almost gone and for 20 years I knew it was hormonal and related to A vitamin used Retin-A. Now that I know how to make it with sunlight.....
    Sweaty palms and feet: slowly going away

    Mind: Here is where it is with me. ..... mother and GM had bipolar.... so when light cycles change that is where I have trouble. I noticed Vitamin D supplementation in winter helped me last year.

    Supplements I take:

    D3 so far I have only supplemented in winter
    Green Tea
    I tried Nicotine (sublingual) it seemed to help my mood although it upset my stomach at first or if empty

    Next getting blood work

    great progress .....keep going!
  9. Peripheral vascular numbness and vasospasm

    Call it Raynauds call it scleroderma but it may have to do with calcium for me. Feet and hands have been cold all day since November, and at night they warm up under covers with Magnetico. Numbness started then too but I had an episode in 2016 in July. Most likely autoimmune.

    Only times my feet are NOT numb is when in cold water (go figure) and with my red light GembaRed LLLT.

    However I discovered Nutmeg is a calcium channel blocker. I got some yesterday at grocery and added it to my diet. Today feet are cold but not numb.

    I read calcium channel blockers are good for vasospasm.

    Nutmeg --------->> Myristic Acid (C14:0)
    You maybe missing on some other fatty acids.
    Consider getting

    Fatty Acid Profile, Comprehensive (C8-C26), Serum

    at Mayo Clinic or LabCorp

    Nutmeg goes real nice with tripes.

  11. Magnetic sense.

    When I first started CT my feet and hands HURT when I put them in the tub. So I thought well it doesn't hurt my legs and torso and chest and arms so we will stick with those parts first. Father: cardiologist said avoid cold. I didn't listen to his advise. The more I did CT last year the better I tolerated cold. Now when my hands and feet are in 55 degree water they don't ache. I have trouble below 55 but much improved over the ache and pain. I also believe that the magnetic sense is increasing with cold. They don't go numb when I am in cold water. Cold air is another story when breathing it during the winter. And when the doctors could not explain on any websites why cold exposure helped me I understood they don't understand the magnetic sense of mitochondria. If your magnetic sense is off you experience many maladies.
