Hi JoeJack, you may know that I was in the research on acetylcholine for many years. I suspected some of our issues revolved around this neurotransmitter, but there were different reasons why it was affected in our population. Did you see my lecture at the University of Houston about some of these findings on YouTube? You can also see my white paper on http://www.ChronicDiseaseDigest.org. What we now call Parasym Plus was the brain child of all of that research. One critical point is that it’s not a lack of choline (except in one form of genetic issues), AND choline doesn’t cross the blood-brain-barrier to help with our brain fog issues by boosting acetylcholine for the brain. It can be problematic for patients to take choline alone, especially without paying attention to other ingredients that are required to boost acetylcholine, and I suspect this is what may have given you problems. The mix of ingredients in Parasym Plus was carefully chosen and tested not only to stimulate the (postganglionic) vagus nerve, but to also cross the blood-brain-barrier safely and effectively. I don’t know why you had a bad reaction to choline, but I have a suspicion that din time, you will recover! Hang in, my friend
Dr. Driscoll, please respond. Huperzine A (even in extremely small quantities) makes me vomit. I cannot tolerate your supplement. Can you please help me figure out further what damage or imbalance was caused by Choline usage (either Choline Bitartrate, CDP-Choline, and/or Alpha GPC) and how to reverse it?
Prior to 2009, I was extremely sensitive to meds but had plenty of energy and was healthy. In 2009 took various forms of Choline (which I again had this year), and it left me permanently ill, fatigued, exhausted, and not a single medicine works properly. It’s like a teeter-totter and I need to reverse this imbalance. I called your office, and they wanted like $7,000 to take me in as a patient……….. Is there not a way to book a phone call or get some assistance without paying such a hefty price tag? I’m not looking to be admitted; I need help with this specific problem.
