MSM for Asperger's

I am mother of a 17 y.o. boy iin the Autistic spectrum (mild) with a childhood filled with tantrums, Opposition Defiance behaviour, occasional serious emotional bursts, having been diagnosed when he was 4.

We had no success with drugs like Risperidone ou Carbamazepine, that proved much worse, going from sleepiness, dizziness to damming the symptoms into unpredictable explosions of anger and despair.

Taking into account that he was very sensitive to cocoa and chocolate (and avoiding these foods brought a great relief), I began studying more deeply what could act like an " antidote" for the bad effects of chocolate so he could maybe someday consume it without all the bad cummulative effect it had.

Reading about many reports and studies from various sources, relating Theobromine, other amines and their effect on my child´s behaviour, at some point I reached the conclusion that those antipsicotic drugs, being MAOI (monoamine oxidase inhibitors) were doing the opposite to what was needed. That the mood bursts and tantrums could not be derived from a lack of anines and serotonines, but from the excess instead. Adding some particularities in the amines and serotonin metabolism in ASD individuals, we have adopted MSM as a mean to favour the equilibrium of monoamino oxidases versus a possible excess of amines.

Along with other suplements, a dose of approx. 1,5 mg /day has been showing fair results for more than two years now. I take it also, for my knee pain (sensibly reduced). I will keep on studying MSM, observing possible after effects and will thank you very much if you will like to share your experiences with me about MSM and ASD.

Conrad, thanks so much for your informative info.

I've used HP for years in a small sprayer with a bit of distilled water and spray my mouth a few times a day, some days more some less. I use the drugstore kind and haven't had any bad side effects. I'm going to try your method as my lungs are a bit congested presently. I appreciate your sharing! Blessings to you!

I haven't had a vaccine but, just in case it's mandated, I got some homeopathic chemical detox spray and, in my research into rebounding, have gathered quite a bit of data re the lymphatic system. I wasn't even aware my ankles were still swollen before I started rebounding but apparently they were as they're not now. It's only been a couple of weeks but, from what I gather, with regard to the lymphatic system, it makes sense.

Plus, I had Covid last spring but never got my strength back. Rebounding has also not only fixed that but I am also far more steady on my feet than I've been in a long time and both came from just 3 days of bouncing on the edge of my bed while I waited for delivery of a yoga ball that was suggested for those who couldn't rebound standing up. By the time my yoga ball arrived, I was rebounding on my old rebounder, standing up so...for what it's worth.

Greetings to all,

I am happy to say the awful, bad cough got less and less as the phlegm came up and out. Whether COVID or just a bad cold it lasted about 14 days in full.

The fluid has returned to my limbs, I can tell by looking at my legs, they are uneven once again. Oh, the night before last, I had my first numbness experience since my body has regained some fluid retention. That's not good, but the rest is.

My eyes have regained its moisture, no more dry eyes. I do not have to put castor oil on them at night anymore. Truly, this is a turn around. I put some iodine ON my nose the last two nights of the cold, because I felt like my nose was trying to get stuffy, I wonder if that somehow helped my eyes.

Now that I'm back home, I know I should be a good girl and go to the doctor and find out what it was that I went through, but it's gone so they probably can't figure it out either. Mama to Many that soup blessed me, and I shall continue with the Vitamin C. I shall also stick with the basic cold medicine that I mentioned earlier to make sure all is clear.

Thank You EC and all.

14 Commercial Colloidal Silver and Ionic Silver Products And How They Compare

This was an interesting read that helps further clarify which products are what they say they are. I found product #12 (Meso Silver) and product #14 (Coated Silver) interesting for different reasons.

MesoSilver seems to proudly announce that their product is .65 nm sized particles at 20 ppm. Actually this article measured the particle size range at 10 to 50 nm, which might partially explain the amber color (dark iced tea color) instead of yellow color as would be expected for AgNPs in the 20 nm size. The actual ppm were measured at 24.7 ppm, so they are close on that point, but way off on particle size with some particles measuring as high as 50 nm.

Particle size is important for efficacy with 12~20 nm shown as an effective range with minimal toxicity to normal cells, but effective against various pathogens. Particles below 10 nm are significantly more toxic to pathogens, but to normal cells as well. Particle size above 20 nm are less effective against pathogens and particles at 30 to 50 nm are much less effective against pathogens. So to me, MesoSilver is a disappointment. I can kind of understand why their particle size is so far off because of the testing method that they used to determine the particle size. Studies of AgNPs use different methods to measure particle size.

Product #14 (Coated Silver) is interesting because for one, it is claimed to be 20,000 ppm and only requires 4 drops to make 8 ounces of 20 ppm AgNPs. The actual ppm was 19,200, so not too far off target and I would think that at this many ppm, the size of the drops could be very critical in determining how close you stay to the claimed ppm. Another interesting point about #14 is that the particle size range is 10 to 12 nm whereas the other colloidal silver products were over all larger. Now they use a proprietary coating to reach this very high ppm and unfortunately we have no clue what the release of the silver is like from this coating.

Overall, many manufacturers who claim their product is colloidal silver are actually selling colorless ionic silver and this article briefly explains the difference and effects.

Here is a link to the article if you are interested in checking out how these commercial products tested compared to the manufacturers claim.

All of these silver based products are available on Amazon according to the article.

Hi Erica.

I have read your comment posted in 2011 about your mum's diverticulitis and the regime she followed for the acid alkaline diet. I was wondering if you could tell me what it was. I am 84 and have had this for 50 years and coped but now I am older it is a problem. Many thanks.

I slathered castor oil (cold-pressed & solvent-free) over the painful knuckle joint of my finger and covered it overnight. 80% pain-free right now.

Iodine for Nail Fungus

I tried many remedies, for my nail fungus (both thumbs and an index finger) but what actually worked was filing down the nails with fungus (about once a week) and then putting a layer of decolorized iodine on my nails followed by a bit of petroleum jelly to moisturize.

I did this every night before bed until the nails grew out a beautiful pink color. I'm so happy to get my nails back! And this remedy is do cheap!

 No Period at 18... What Remedies Can Help?

Tue, 26 Jan 21 20:39:50 -0800
Posted by Mama To Many (Tn) on 01/26/2021

Dear Michelle,

Did your daughter have periods and they have stopped?

Too much or too little body fat can cause periods to stop. Could one of those be the problem?

When I was 18 I was under a lot of stress and had a 3 week period. Then no period. So stress can really mess up a teens cycle, also.

While you are trying to get through this difficulty, try spending some no stress quality time with your daughter. The more she knows you are her advocate the more likely she is to include your advice into her life as she considers her heath (and other) challenges.
