I still don't understand the mechanism whereby the benadryl meadiates the apoptosis but clearly the point at which apoptosis occurs has been raised. I estimate that I have between 2 and 3 times as much energy available for use as I did before.....and I know why!
apoptosis requires energy (ATP)!
I can't believe I never tripped to this before, everything makes so much more sense knowing this.
Not only is apoptosis initiated by ATP depletion, but the process further depletes ATP....cascade effect. When I raised the bar on apoptosis I immeadiatly had that energy available and the symptoms of apoptosis disappeared.
What are the global effects caused by high levels of apoptosis?
my liquid requirements are now normal, I don't get dry mouth at night, I don't have to pee at night.
I have been able to cut back on electrolyte replacement.
constipation, intestinal dysmobility, illeus.....
I have had a "normal" BM every day since starting the benadryl!!! This is up from every 2 or 3 days at best and they have all been in the goldielocks zone... not to hard, not to soft! This has not happened EVER since statins!
just brief episodes corrisponding to the 2 times I passed my new limits...this is most encouraging
Dark, cloudy, and foamy urine....
except for 2 times that occured after I knowingly went to far, my urine has cleared. More importantly my recovery time was JUST TWO DAYS. That compares to weeks before....
so far these have remained at relatively low levels
There is one effect, that I would not have associated with apoptosis, that has also disappeared (so far); myoclonic jerks
there are effects that have increased with my increased activity:
I have vasiculations in my calves that increase or decrease depending on activity level, those have increased...as they would have before
my neuropathy signs have also increased....I may up my B vitamins
Pitosis (droopy eye)....
this too has gotten more noticable with increased activity
my cognative issues are reduced and more noticable at the same time. It's funny, my memory is working well enough that I remember when I've forgotten things...no simple way to describe this and I have yet to tax my percieved improvement to determine exactly what my new limits are...I'm hopeful
That pretty much covers all my observations so far.
