When my 15-year-old Amish client came to me, he suffered with 2 or more heartbreaking seizures a week.
This sweet boy cannot speak and has a SNIP1 gene variant found in the Amish
community that causes a recognizable neurodevelopmental disorder.
His community does not subscribe to pharmaceutical medications.
His parents worried sick and suffering too needed a solution other than traditional medicine to help their son.
I suggested we introduce low dose methylene blue (MB), as studies have found it to be protective against seizures and other neurological disorders, acting as a potent antioxidant within mitochondria, improving electron transfer enhancing metabolic rate.
Picture one of those Rube Goldberg machines as the mitochondria, and the ball as the electron.
And those three things make it neuro-protective.
It improves memory, cognitive performance, and neuroplasticity.
It's shown to be effective for neurological diseases due to its neuroprotective properties.
Since the boy didn't have any contraindications, the parents added 10-20 drops (5-10 mg) to his daily intake.
[Please note that MB must be pharmaceutical grade to be considered safe for humans, and the 1% MB solution should be taken at low doses for a beneficial hormetic response and to avoid high dose toxicity.]
I also suggested cod liver oil to support his omega 3 fatty acid intake.
Everyone needs omega 3 fatty acids as they help rebuild brain tissue and brain cells.
Our brain is made up of nearly 60% fat which is very crucial to your brain’s integrity and ability to perform. Omega 3 fatty acids help support the brain with anti-inflammatory properties, antioxidant effects, myelination support, and much more.
Cod liver oil also provides an excellent natural source of vitamins A and D.
These two supplements have the ability to regulate and calm the brain, decrease inflammation and provide neuro-protective benefits.
