The way to determine if one should avoid folate is to look at their red blood cell folate levels.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>> I've got all my test results from Pfeiffer right in front of me. No where does it show any results for red blood cell folate levels. I really wonder if they just do a lot of assuming, i.e. "well, if the patient is histadelic then he MUST already have too much folate"...hard to tell what they're doing when you can't simply ask. Pfeiffer's communication with their patients is lousy, as others here on this board have also found out.

Are you familiar with water fasting under resting conditions. Let me know if you want more information regarding fasting or any thing elese.

>>>>>>>>> I'm not familiar with it Blake. Seems like it might be hard to do though when consuming gobs and globs of supplements throughout the day and night along w/ meds. (MANY supps! I've posted the list before and will do it again if you think I should). Can you do it safely under those conditions? Sure, I'd be interested in trying many things. Although what I really want to do is to increase my serotonin. The ssri's work great for me for depression/ocd/anxiety...however, I get a terrible anger/irritability/agitation reaction from them (Dr. Amen says it's a temporal lobe issue)..... I've never tried taking something like tryptophan or 5htp (I've read so much contradictory stuff about those that I don't know what to believe...then again, I don't know if those substances end up getting converted in the brain to serotonin in significant amounts anyway.....I guess the only way is to just try them and see what something today that says don't take 5htp w/ antidepressants....please.
