do you have any recommendation what is the maximum time one should do rectal insufflation cure? I have done it now almost 6 monts 5-7 times a day for supposed mycoplasma/CFS/mold infection issues. My set up consist of Kröber oxygen concentrator which allows 1/10 flow speed, Enaly 1000bt-12 ozone generator and silicon tubes and catheter. I started carefully with 2 minutes and keeping the regualtor somewhere around 25% and ended up during months taking 7,5 minutes with 45% adjustment.
I think it has alleviated some chemical and mold sensitivities and CFS symptoms, but I am not sure how does it contribute, negatively or positively to adrenal fatigue I developed one and half months ago after trying out high doses of alpha lipoic acid.
I thought I developed an adrenal fatigue, insomnia(early wake ups) being the most serious symptom while experimenting high doses of ALA for few weeks. I also had zeolite in my regimen for few weeks(with few days break between the weeks) and also MSM about a week and half untill I stopped it and continued with ALA and zeolite. But I suppose those are not the main factors, but ALA. I took about 700mg divided during the day over the period of 9-10 days and then went back to normal maintenance dose(200-300mg) for a week or so and then went back up to 900-1200mg per day for another week. Then started to get back down during one week or so, first 300, then 200,150, 100, 50 and so. And then I started to experience insomnia(waking up at 5am and so and food sensitivities and dizzynes, craving for salt, thirst, anxiety, muscle pains and all) and while searching on that issue I came a cross with this adrenal fatigue-HPA axis dysfunction issue that fits perfectly to my symptoms. I got some temporary help from magnesium and high C- and B-vitamins, and melatonin for sleeping but I am afraid the HPA axis has got permanent damage.
I have never had amalgams and have done EDTA-DMSA chelation (12sessions) one and half years ago and been taking ALA on daily basis ever since about 200-300mg without any problems and been eating some chlorella and spirulina too. So I thought I can not be so full of mercury anymore that it would make any redistribution. I was convinced enough to go to those high does with ALA after reading article that said it has been used with about 1.2-1.8 grams per day cures to reverse some nerve damages caused by diabetes although I don't have diabetes. And probably those patients have had some ordinary amount of mercury in their tissues too and it did not poison them in high ALA cure due to redistribution.
Although I don't understand these statements that seems like contradictory to each other:
First it says as RESULTS: "Compared with the control group, CRH level in lipoicin-treated normal and diabetic rats was significantly reduced (P<0.05). ACTH level of the 3 lipoicin doses groups of normal rats decreased, and a significant reduction occurred in medium-dose lipoicin group of diabetic rats (P<0.05)."
"Lipoicin treatment obviously enhanced the hypophysis and pituitary gland cell metabolism function to resist diabetic oxidative stress."
So does it mean decreasing the ACTH and CRH function is the same as enhancing the metabolism within the HPA axis? I don't understand. I suppose the decreasing values would mean it will enhance the insufficient hormone production---> causing what is called adrenal fatigue with all of it's symptoms that I've got.
So anyway, I thought it won't do any harm, but to fix the nerves which I believe it did coz when I have good days I feel more sharp and responsive than before as I have used to have some issues too in those areas too, that I believe now have alleviated slightly.
But now I am also supecting the rectal insufflation may affect to that. But I am not sure if it supports the glands or does it over stimulate them at the higher doese of 7,5 minutes of 45%..?
