Hi [...] - i did have that scalp pain - it was pretty constant for a few months - then left - then came back and then left never to happen again - so - i suspect it is withdrawal related - the way i would describe it - felt like someone had been pulling at my hair for hours on end such that my scalp felt sore.   it felt like something was tugging yet i didnt have my hair in a clip or pony tail - so - not sure what causes that but it was very uncomfortable.  hopefully it will stop soon for you!! 

the fact that your DHEA-S and cortisol levels are high means your adrenals are still going in full fight / flight mode - so  - i am not surprised by your symptoms.  i do understand the fear of supplements.  if you haven't tried some vitamin C - i would consider it - i stuck with twin labs crystalline vitamin C because its rumored not to be a citrus source - which can increase histamine.... i have no way of verifying that but i didnt have a bad reaction to it - since it was a capsule - i only took half the contents initially and worked my way up to a full one.   the more you can get your cortisol levels down the better your progesterone will do - they call it the progesterone steal because cortisol uses the same building blocks and when the body is alarmed - it will prioritize making cortisol...... in men - its a testosterone steal.

i struggled with the decision to stop the progesterone cream i had been using for years but i was on 25mg twice a day so a much heftier dose.  i am sure it made my withdrawal worse but i had concerns it was worsening things with hitting the GABA receptors.  i imagine something as low as 5mg wouldnt have much consequence and i don't think it is the source of the scalp issue you are talking about

best wishes for healing - you've been down a long road!
Hi [...], thank you again with my all heart to taking your time to write back to me.  :smitten:
Reading trough all your post I still have some improvement to do about neurotoxicity food.
I need to try anything and everything to give my brain the chances to calm down.
I'm gluten free, sugar, alcohol, dairy and coffee free from over 2 years now but I was not medication free. Only 4 months now I'm off all the medication but I still used some spice and food what is on your list Not to use it.
I will try vitamin c and eliminate all or most staff on your list.
I loved what you said if we can think positive atlist try to stay natural. This  is my new goal and keep telling myself what I feeling is my brain healing. Oh boy it is hard very hard but no other choice.
I hope one day I will able to give encouragement here just like you.
God bless you and don't let any negative comments stop you what is your heart telling you. Helping others is wonderful.
Thank you again your comment  and help to me. :smitten:
Love and healing

Hi [...] - glad you found some potential new things to try - i really do think a full elimination of the various neurotoxic / inflammatory foods will help.  and also reaching your goal of being medication free is a huge accomplishment - it makes me so angry that people need to suffer for making decisions for their health !  I will continue to pray for your healing.  As you said - just aim for being neutral each day.  that will be a big help :)

[...],

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this and for your dedication to help fellow warriors.  Your detailed success stories have inspired me greatly and have given me new things to try.  Love what you said about positive thinking, as I am a true believer in it.  Neutrality is a good alternative when positive just isnít possible.  I, too, love the books The Secret and The Power and am now reading The Magic.  So many will benefit from your experience.  Thank you, again!  Congratulations and cheers to continued health and happiness.  This is such a positive success story! 

Love,

[...]

Hi [...] one more quick question, as I stated I opened your post many times but it is much to process.

Just a simple one I went over your meal plan as you stated you went gluten free but doesn't oatmeal which you had for breakfast every day contain gluten?

And what about rice?

Thank you for clarifying.

Pure oats are gluten free.

Rice is also gluten free.

[...] is correct - oatmeal and rice do not contain gluten - and thank goodness because with the weight loss - i really needed some carb like fillers. 

although i would be sure to read the contain for the oatmeal as there is some possibility more "processed" brands could admit to putting some kind of gluten source in there.

if people are only going to make one change - i really believe firmly going gluten free has to be it - it took 5 months for my neurotransmitter testing to show my glutamate had come well down into the normal range - imagine what is happening for people who continue to eat gluten.....

i must say i am feeling really elated this morning because i awoke to an email from another warrior who said she had read my posts about the severe acne - tried the Lycopene and also had nearly instant results in stopping it.  what a success.   obviously acne can be coming from many things but in my case - i knew i had extremely high IGF-1 levels - which can cause acne - and not only did the lycopene stop it in its tracks - my IGF-1 levels came down to well within normal range within 2 months.  so - i think this is another testimonial that vitamins are not the placebo effect.....

Thank you! You are truly a great resource and I hope you keep posting. I already limited my gluten intake before this but if I can eat oatmeal and sweet potatoes and rice it will be no problem for me. I lost 12 kilos in 1 month  >:(

Hi [...] - thanks for stopping in and so glad my story has helped in any way - oh - i loved The Magic too - i guess it was a bit more of a workbook.  thank goodness i found those books years ago - as i really utilized the skills i had learned from reading them.  but that is also what made me realize positive thinking alone wasnt going to be enough in this case - at least not for me - i imagine others - with better genetics may be ok without any other resources!    unquestionably - digging deep to reconnect with the positive thinking gave my healing the push it needed!!!! 

I think i pulled those books out dozens of times during the nightmares and kept reminding myself that i had to tip the scale to positivity when possible but at least neutrality at a minimum!!  best wishes for your healing :)
