> Lar,
> a nurse at Pfeiffer told me to go and get some SAM-e and start taking it.....I did NOT buy that "Cellfood" brand, lol....I just bought some SAM-e from iherb.com (it wasn't too costly)....it always says to take folate, B6 & B12 with it (maybe some other vitamins too?)....well, I can't take a folic acid supp (as per Pfeiffer) but I do take methionine, B6, B12 & TMG---that should turn the Sam-e-created homocysteine back into methionine, correct? (in other words, I shouldn't have to worry about the SAM-e causing a homocysteine problem if I'm taking these other supps, correct?).....

Correct.

About Pfeiffer.....

Conceptually, I have a problem with any theorist who keeps trying to prove his theory over and over again. (They treat you based on numbers from tests. Then when the tests don't change, they don't discard the theory, they suggest that there's something quirky about you.) It's called petitio principii, begging the question. In other words, to believe the conclusion, you must already believe in the premises of the theory itself.

I've mentioned that I like some of the Pfeiffer ideas (they are a good starting point for individual experimentation, and would have saved me time in finding what works for me), but I'm not sold on his categorization, his exclusions and inclusions (supplements and nutrients).

Your own list doesn't mention B3. Niacinamide is anti-histaminic. So is NADH.

If you're feeling lethargic, I'd also suggest that you try upping the dose of TMG. It can perk you up. As can DLPA.

You mention meds. What meds are you taking? They may be the source of the lethargy. Anything's possible.

The supps you've been taking may not have had the positive mood effect you've been seeking, but I'm convinced they've been good for your general health, notwithstanding.
