True Calm/ Day 7 of Delsym to Lower Glutamate


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

I would like to know some more about the product True Calm. Is anyone using this? I found an old post and have been trying to get back to it. I put the name of it in the title in case someone else wanted to read it. I'm glad I made a copy of it because I can't seem to get back to it. Maybe someone else can bump it up. There was so much in this post simular to my son's condition (low GABA and High Glutamate). After reading this post, I'm wondering if my son does have a problem with MSG or gluten.

 

Is it true the CaM Kinese can elevate Glutamate levels in the brain? According to my son's last Cunningham panel, his CaM Kinese is very high.

 

The person that wrote this post was fcefxer (Nancy). I tried to pm but she has not been active since last Oct 2013 and I could not leave a message.

 

My son has high Dopamine levels so I am not willing to give him Delsym. However, I would like to know if anyone is using True Calm and if it seems to help. I would also like to be able to contact Nancy and ask about her children's progress. She stated that this product could pretty well control the PANDAS symptoms. I would really be interested in knowing more about True Calm. My son is already taking the same B-12 shots and we have seen some improvements with fatigue, mood, and more alert during daytime hours.

I've been doing a little more research and found a PDF study entitled Calcium/Calmodulim-independent Protien II (Ca MKII) Inhibition Induces Neurotoxicity via Dysregulation of Glutamate/Calcium Signaling and Hyperexcitability. This is a free research article. It was very interesting and if the CaM Kinese level is high then it can cause high levels of Glutamate in the brain. Maybe this is part of my son's medical condition.http://www.jbc.org/content/287/11/8495.full

After reading ingredients that are listed for True Calm, I notice the parallel with many of the supplements that many here are already using in this forum. Niacin, Magnesium, B6 more commonly. These are all known to support the central nervous system. I know that I have also seen valerian root used as well. What I have not heard about is the use of GABA supplements. At quick glance, it seems that not a lot of research about the safety of GABA supplements. I had a poor experience with Valerian root myself, years ago, so I hesitate to go near it. I am curious if anybody has used GABA supplements by themselves?

Thanks for posting this. I am learning so much on this forum. I have decided to go ahead and try the True Calm with my son. He seems to be able to handle a low dosage of GABA (300mg) . I have also read that taurine will disregulate CaM Kinese. If I can break the pill in half, I am planning try to start with that dosage first. I will post the effects.

 

My son has very high levels of glycrine and I have read this protects the brain and keeps depression at bay.

Hello! I'm that Nancy. Yes Delsym helped my son greatly except after awhile it make him have a hard time urinating. Namenda controls high glutamate as well. Might want to try that. I can be found on the PANDAS Parents Group and Parents of Kids who have PANDAS on Facebook as Nancy Tozier. Sorry I never saw your message requests.
