Dr. D – I’m new to the board and am very intrigued by your research of the Vagus Nerve. Not sure if you are familiar with the Shoemaker / Biotoxin research, but I’m a homozygous 4-3-53 (HLA gene type) and have been suffering for 10 years had a recovery period then last 6 months crashed hard. TGF-Beta 1 went from normal to over 12000 due to suspected mold hit in the last year. My vagus nerve has ALWAYS been central in my illness like it was swollen / inflamed. The problem is so bad it is causing me terrible shortness of breath, food sensitives, disabling fatigue, etc. from HIGH TGF-Beta 1 Its been devastating. As I work to get rid of the toxins through cholestryramine, I’m looking at Parasym Plus to help calm the vagus nerve as I attempt to go through detoxification. The Vagus is the root of many of my terrible symptoms.
Question: Have you noticed anyone from the biotoxin community (mold, lyme) get relief in suppressing the TGF-Beta 1 from PP? Once that marker sky rocketed it has wiped me out.
Thanks for your hard work.
