Lemon balm is an ingredient that is used in RestAid that restores depleted glutathione levels in those who are low on it (almost all chronically ill or diseased patients are low on the mother antioxidant glutathione, including those with anxiety).
MSM is a great supplement. First of all, it raises glutathione levels which is the mother antioxidant in the body. The level of glutathione is low in countless diseases in most people including autoimmune disorders and anxiety and many more. When this is low, immunity plummets, things go wrong like a domino effect and you will continue to feel sicker and sicker and be labeled with all of the "things" wrong with you.
I've had MS for 7 years and the worsening effects of it for 14 years before anyone could figure out that's what I've had. I live in a depressed south jersey area where drs. seem to do more harm than good. I still am not on any treatment for this yet as my drs. are too concerned fighting back and forth whether it's MS or not, although UPENN said it was. Within this time I've suffered anxiety, brain fog, aggravation, anger, social alienation, facial breakouts most of the time, UTI's, severe pain in limbs which was failed to be treated as well, crying if I were going to be here for my kids as a single parent and a mirror imaging effect on my brain in which things on the left I perceived as things on the right and vice versa. There was one point in time my fight or flight mechanism was all screwed up, when I got startled by the least little thing the right side of my body got weak. I would wake up to a pounding heart in the middle of the night. All tests for strokes and heart attacks checked out fine. Raising these levels are important in any disease or illness. You can get tested to see if your levels are low. I haven't because it seems to be too much to get a dr. to do something around here they don't want to.
MSM is a sulphur based mineral which has the same toxicity level as water. It's less toxic than salt. It should not be confused with the inorganic forms of sulphur crammed into sulfa drugs that people have had countless skin reactions while taking.
I began taking MSM a week ago. Although, for a "normal" person it takes 2 weeks to notice effects, I noticed it the 2nd day. Still have a bit of brain fog, but not as dillusional. I want to call my friends on the phone and talk, my kids are happier and I feel like a different person. I'm not ready to run a marathon, but I will continue to take this because it has relieved almost every problem I have and I feel happier by the day! MSM also remyelinates the nerve sheaths. I would be interested in knowing if this will clear up the demyelinated lesions on my brain. I'll give it 6 months and get another MRI. I'm not a doctor and I'm not claiming this is a cure, but whatever makes you feel better do it! This is the best I've felt in years!
