Spinocerebellar Ataxia (SCA)

Temporal lobe epilepsy?

I had a series of mental breakdowns from the ages 13-18. I was put on welbutrin when I was 13 after I became depressed due to a death in the family.

I started having fainting spells and intense ...

While it appears to involve mental illmess issues, it is a result of mutiple micro-bleed strokes, some "silent" strokes. I want to raise awareness of this condition found around the globe, as it is genetic. There is no known treatment or cure but ...

mold toxicity

I have lived in some very moldy environments and recently decided to get tested for mycotoxons. I found that I do test positive for certain mycotoxins-one of them so toxic that it is used in biological warfare! So some of my difficulties in the last 2 decades or so have been from toxic mold exposure.I'm sharing this because many people are exposed to mold in their environments not realizing how damaging it can be.
Just ...

Hypoparathyroidism is a rare disease that goes hand in hand with hypocalcemia (low calcium). Only 40 people per million have hypoparathyroidism. Most people get this disease from having a thryoidectomy which I have had in the past. Luckily it can be controlled with the medication of a calcium supplement.

Burning Mouth Syndrome

If you look it up you will see that they says there is no known cause. That;s a load of CRAP. It is caused by toxic dental materials. I have suffered from it so I KNOW. I had the acrylic removed from my mouth andit improved. Now I have lithium disilicate crowns that are KNOWN to be toxic. Look at this article I found:

In vitro cytotoxic response to lithium disilicate dental ceramics.

Would love to know thoughts.
