Hey everyone great thread!

I also have a double mutation of the MTHFR gene C677T amongst other things that say I can not rebuild new neurons and regulate synapses properly 

I am 17 months out and have had the worst withdrawal imagineable, I still can’t even watch TV or go for a walk.

Can I just ask when all of you with this genetic mutation say that you […] to supplement is that because you’ve had additional blood/urine tests to show that the gene mutation is actually effecting you? My doctor says it would be crazy just to supplement on the basis of every gene mutation like this, he says if an an additional blood or urine test actually shows you are deficient in B12, B6, Folate etc. Then he would of course recommend supplementation but if you are not actually deficient then don’t?

He also was quick to say that Dr Lynch was not in fact a doctor and has nothing more than a standard college degree as his credentials, basically dismissed him as a quack.

Despite having the double mutation methyl B12 has been my cryptonite throughout my withdrawal, I’ve tried it on several occasions because I am a vegan too so […] to supplement B12, but when I try it revs me up for days like I’m on acid!

Needless to say I feel particularly stuck at the moment

Appreciate your thoughts

Ok so i got the Wifey a nice set of super sharp scanpan knives for Xmas and after warning her for 2 weeks to be careful with them i literally chopped the tip of my finger off. I have been given antibiotics by the doc (cephalexin) and due too my complete distrust and vote of no confidence in doctors anymore am reluctant to take them. Its a nasty wound and i probably should.

Anyone have any advice ??

Thanks buddies

Hi […],
I needed 2 courses of Keflex in withdrawals & had no adverse effects. I did load up on probioticcs to balance the gut flora.

For me, Cipro was the only AB that caused major mayhem & I will avoid all fluroquinolones in future.

Cephalexin is a cephalosporin, you should be fine. Like with most antibiotics you might feel a bit sick for a while if you have many gram negative bacteria living in your body. These release a toxic lipopolysaccharide (LPS) when they die which then cause an increase in cytokines etc. Also called a herxheimer reaction.

Antibiotics of the fluoroquinolone class however should be avoided at any cost, they inhibit benzodiazepine receptor binding so directly compete with your benzo. Not only that, fluoroquinolones are extremely toxic to your nervous system and mitochondria, the FDA has issued 3(!) black box warnings for this type of antibiotics. I don’t understand why they are not pulled off the market yet.

I read over some of this tonight and it seems like Point of Return is cashing in on an epidemic. Has anyone seen this site? Do the nutriants they give work? It’s only $265, lol. rstud

Sometimes sites like this prey on people who are desperate. I have found no shortcuts (including supplements) that have helped out with benzo withdrawal. I wish there was something we could buy that would help. Unfortunately, I haven’t found it.

It’s probably always a good idea to take a multiple vitamin… what with our food source being ‘compromised’ by “whatever” process – be it too early harvesting (to prevent spoilage during shipping) or antibiotics in the meats, or over processing of grains, etc.,

We are not getting all the nutrients from our foods that we were just a few generations ago, and then we have pollution to worry about, and sunscreens are depleting our vitamin D absorption. We need the vitamin boost but a good multiple vitamin and mineral is probably all we need.

I take a multiple vitamin and mineral, fish oil, vitamin E, B-complex and feverfew for controlling my migraines. (feverfew is far better than benzos for controlling my migraines)

These benzos tax our systems and – I am sure – deplete us of needed nutrients. Since I have been off the benzos (almost three years now) I am noticing much improvement in many areas … my fingernails are no longer brittle .. my skin is better, eyes are not as dry but I’m not going to list everything …

I think it is my taking the vitamins on a regular basis that has helped me heal faster, your bodies can’t do the necessary repair work without the proper chemicals, and those chemicals are the vitamins and minerals in our foods, … with our compromised food sources – we need the supplemental boost.

But I’d never pay $250.00 a month to a company like that … no way.
