Hello!

Welcome to the bare bones of what I hope to develop into a visually pleasing, accessible, and informative website.

I have started this because roughly 4 months ago as of writing I was cured of the debilitating symptoms of Depression, Anxiety, OCD which had crippled my life for over 25 years. I was able to discard the psychiatric medication which had provided me with some measure of relief for 7 years with terrible side effects. This was done using an approach to Medicine which focuses on treating the underlying biochemical causes of illnesses using supplements such as vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients where possible.

I am passionate in sharing my story and what I know about this approach to Medicine, especially as it applies to my recovery. I find myself explaining to people over and over what this entails, as there is so little reliable information available to the general public on this topic. From what I have seen in the months since I have started research on this I realise that there is a lot of misinformation on the Internet, both from detractors and proponents. Much of it is due to the fact that there is so little published research conducted in this area for various reasons.

The purpose of this site is to present in an easy to understand format for the layperson what I have learned in my research, focusing first on the topics which concern my personal recovery and introducing others as I have the time. This is a part-time effort as I now have the joy of having a life (after decades otherwise) to attend to, most importantly my formal studies by which I intend to gain the ability to do for others, amongst other things,  what the remarkable Medical Doctors who treated me were able to do.

To start the ball rolling, I have created a testimonial page where I invite all those who have their own story to share to do so. I will be vetting stories for veracity and relevance according to the knowledge that I have on the subject, but otherwise I will engage in no other censorship besides enforcing strict rules against insulting, inflammatory, obscene, and demeaning language. And strictly no ads or soliciting. I don’t intend to make any money out of this site, nor anybody else for that matter. Advice and information about treating professionals and supplements and their providers is welcome and expected, but only from people actually getting treatment or experience thereof.

As of yet, I have only addressed on this site one of the actual conditions I have identified and its treatment method. The testimonial page I have spent this initial time setting up is aimed at those who already know about these. I intend to flesh the rest out in the future but for the curious these are Pyrrole Disorder AKA Pyroluria, Undermethylation (formerly known as Histadelia), and copper toxicity. Many websites omit a lot of information about these and there is a certain amount of general misunderstanding which needs to be addressed (especially about Pyrrole Disorder) which is one of the reasons for this site.
