I concur about glutamate; I just started taking it every morning again to help my leaky gut after a stressful holiday season. good, bad? Can it make one tired, but I know I need it again to regulate my intestines.
Wow this thread has gotten off topic slightly and now we are into multiple subjects. To address kodaz’s question, my naturopath feels that you should stabilize the patient before addressing the complex methylation cycle. This means heal leaky gut first, heal the liver first, and address the immune system (thyroid, adrenals, etc.) You can do this stabilization protocol all at once where you heal multiple organs. This is basically known as holistic medicine/care and its hard to do this on your own with the treat yourself route (imho)…
Then I think you should address the methylation cycle.
I am personally going to address it as the last thing in my personal protocol because I feel that it should largely be corrected when you become stabilized. For instance, I basically have no symptoms now and have lots of energy, etc…I just feel bad when I eat bad food only.
If you get your pH close to neutral, the cycle should mostly correct itself naturally per my naturopath and this is the foundation to any success with the methylation cycle. This takes a long time and I bet most of us are not there yet in terms of bodily pH.
