Updates about my vitamins and my computer problems


This is a Nederlog of Wednesday, May 25, 2016.

This is not a crisis log but is an update about my vitamins (against ME) and my computer problems. There will be a later Nederlog today.

First an update about a mistake I made in the index of 2016:

For some reason that escapes me now, I put linked two files of March on April 24 and April 25. I have restored this to how it should have been (the files were there but the links from the index were wrong) and also notify you that April 24, 2016 was a special update about vitamins and ME, for I refound rather a lot of material from 1987, when I was improving a lot on large doses of vitamins (I am quite certain), and I now give it here (in part).

Also the item of
April 24, 2016 was special in containing an English argument why I am in favor of orthomolecular medicine, and a rather large Dutch update with careful statistics plus results. (The whole file is 64.3 Kb.)

I am very sorry this somehow disappeared in April. Now for May 2016:

1. Update about my vitamins

This continues the last monthly update about vitamins and ME, which is here. And the following is what I am taking now since April 24, 2016.
vitamin C: 5 grams
Potassium: 2 pills a day
This gives 400 mg a day. (Same.)
Vit B6: 100 mg
This is new (again) and was this month taken only some times.
Folic acid: 1 pills a day.
This gives 5000 mcg. (Same)
Magnesium: 1 pill a day.
This gives the daily required amount, together with VM-75 (Same.)
Zinc (citrate): 1 pill a day
This gives 50 mg. (Same)
Vit mB12 5000 mcg: 1 pill a day. (Same.)
vit mB12 1000 mcg: 1 pill a day. (Same.)
1 pill a day (since April) which includes i.a.

   Calcium - 35 mg
   B1 - 35 mg
   B2 - 40 mg
   B3 - 35 mg
   B5 - 35 mg
   B6 - 35 mg
   B12 -35 mcg (cyanocobalamine)
   E - 50 mg (75 IE)
   Many minerals and some herbs that I do not list
This is the same as I took in April (except for B6, of which I took less). And this is on VM-75, that is mostly copied from March 25, 2016:

VM-75 is a multi-vitamin (from Solgar) that I have taken before, but stopped because it contained a little too much of B1, B2 and B3 given the experiment with mB12 that I started (more or less properly) in 2012.

The main reasons for adding the VM-75 (again) are that it did help me before; that megavitamins helped me a lot between 1986 and 1990 (without my ever learning what this was due to) [1]; and that I have been worse (not as well) this
year, and also in 2015, compared with 2013 and 2014.

Well... I reasoned that I did take VM-75 before, in 2012 and 2013, when I was also following the mB12 protocol (evidence), and I decided to take it again, and indeed my condition has improved some over the last month of taking it, which is pleasant. (And no, by now I know more than enough of modern medicine to insist that this is the only good explanation.)

I doubled the dose in April, and the last month was rather a bit better than before, so I will continue with this.

2. Update about my computer problems

I caused myself - by my own stupidity - serious computer problems on November 24, 2015, and had to return to an earlier system, which also involved several problems. Here are two short files about it, from December 5 and December 6.

The update is that the system still works, on May 25, 2016 and is considerably more stable than it was, and is currently updated, all of which is good, and makes me more confident it will keep working, but not all is as should be, and I also do not have all my facilities back.

For one thing, I still lack all statistics on the moment, and also the computer is not fully updated. (The statistics - it emerges now, in May 2016 - are probably lost forever: now denies me access to all statistics that I did get from
2004 till March 2016, and I think that is a scandal, for they sell them undoubtedly to others. More later.)

Then again, for the moment my computer mostly works and is expected to keep working, which means that in case I stop updating Nederlog it may be because of health-problems (rather than computer problems).


P.S. Jun 27, 2016: I corrected two dates, from 2015 to 2016. (The links were incorrect.)


[1] There is some reasonable evidence for this, but it is in Dutch: Vitamins - 1987-1988. Also - having found out how profit-oriented, lazy and dishonest most medical people I have met (plenty, and hardly anyone helped, but almost everyone was extremely pretentious) - I am quite sure that the only reasonable explanation for the quite radical improvements in my health from 1984-1988
was my taking orthomolecular doses of the vitamins and minerals. (These were again totally undone from 1988-1992, because I could not sleep, because I was kept awake by 3 caf├ęs and 1 illegal drugs shop, protected by mayor Ed van Thijn).
