Update about my vitamins  

A. This is a Nederlog of Sunday, September 25, 2016.

This is not a crisis log but is an update about my vitamins, which I take against ME. I also provided for a while updates about my computer, but stopped with that last month. (It is relatively OK.)

The previous update is from
August 25, 2016.

B. In case you visit my Dutch site: I do not know, but it may be you need to click twice to see any changes I have made. This certainly held for me, but it is possible this was caused by the fact that I am also writing it from my computer.

In any case, I am now (again) updating the opening of my site with the last day it was updated. (And I am very sorry if you have to click several times to see the last update: It is not what I wish, nor how it was. And it was yesterday still or again the case. Indeed, this also holds for the opening pages: These too are not renewed at "xs4all", or at least: Not for me.) [1]

In particular, if you go to the opening of the site, it should be (i) in the middle (it often isn't: NOT because of me), and (ii) it should show today's date. If it doesn't - it did not for me, for several months now - you have to reload again (and maybe a few more times) until you see the correct opening. And from there you can get the latest uploads, though again with repeated reloading.

This is all due to either the KPN's "xs4all" (which isn't the real xs4all at all) or someone in the AIVD or the NASA. I do not know, but these are the facts.

1. Updates about my vitamins

This continues last month's update about vitamins and ME, which is here.

The last month (between August 25 and September 25) I have mostly experimented with vitamin B1. I started this around August 15. The last time I got as far as 4 vitamin B1 "500 mg" (I'll explain the quotes in a moment), and this month I mostly took 5 of the same.

But there is a problem, which relates to "500 mg":

Most of the persons tested (all but one) started to feel the effects of doing this once they took 1500 mg of B1, each day, and one started to feel the effects when reaching 600 mg, and none felt any difference at lower dosages. (And all were women, who are lighter and smaller than this 6 ft 4 male.)

Since I have taken a lot of megavitamins since 1983 [2], I was willing to try this, because I know one can take a great amount of B1, and in part also because I wanted to find out whether this might explain the very good results with megavitamins I had between 1984 and 1988 (which did occur, but which I can't explain other than in very broad terms).

And therefore I ordered a pot of pills with "500 mg" of B1 from my regular supplier, which I started taking, after which I found out that these pills contain
373,15 mg of vitamin B1, plus X (which may be other forms of B1, but that I
do not know, and also do not want for this experiment) that makes it 500 mg. But what X is - apart from taking 1/4 of each pill - I have no idea.

But anyway... I have tried these pills most of the last month, and have taken 5 a day to get at least 1500 mg of B1, but I did not feel - psychologically - very well about this, for in fact 1 in 5 of these pills contained only X (the unknown), if averaged out, which the producer of these pots does not deign to declare on his pots.

What I took most of the days was this:

- 3 grams of vitamin C
- 2 Magnesium (daily dosage)
- 1 Zinc
(daily dosage)
- 1 VM-75 (lots of vitamins and minerals)
- 5 B1 "500 mg"

What I learned were two things:

(1) I seemed to have a bit more energy
(2) I seemed to eat less (because I didn't feel hungry)

The first finding was welcome. It wasn't spectacular, but it was there (and I also did quite a lot - comparatively - the last month, and all of that went well, also in not having to pay back afterward).

The second finding was unexpected but mostly welcome because I was slightly too thick - not fat, nor even weighty, but with a few kilos more than would be excellent.

In fact, the second finding was more striking than the first, as indeed I did get a bit thinner (and needed an extra hole in my belt).

Then again, I stopped using these vitamins and ordered other ones, which I still haven't received (and do not know whether the label on the new one hides as much as the label on the previous one). [3]

I did learn less this month than I should have liked to, but my overall condition still is fair and considerably better than it has been most of the last 25 years (which were awful, thanks to mayor Van Thijn's helping the illegal drugsdealers who threatened to murder me, tried to gas me, and who were allowed to keep me from sleeping a mere 4 years):

I am reasonably well anyway, comparatively, and indeed have been so since the beginning of 2012, apart from my eyes, and without getting better. (And my eyes, although they haven't healed yet, are this year a lot better and less painful than they were from 2012-2015).

And I hope to have learned more in the next month.

[1]  Alas, this is precisely as I said it does, and it goes on for months now. I do not know who does it, and I refuse to call the liars of "xs4all" (really: the KPN), simply because these haven been lying to me from 2002-2009, and I do not trust anything they say I cannot control myself: They have treated me for seven years as a liar because "you complain about things other people do not complain about" (which is the perfect excuse never to do anything whatsoever for anyone).

[2] This is a parenthetical aside, which is relevant for me, but - it appears - for extremely few others (for nearly all Dutchmen are children, grand- children or greatgrandchildren of Nazi-collaborators, while I am not):

... (which helped me a lot from 1984-1988, after which everything was destroyed because mayor Van Thijn wanted to protect the illegal drugsdealers that he had given his personal permission (that is how "the law" is kept up in Holland) to deal in illegal drugs from the bottom floor of the house where I lived, without asking me or my neighbors anything: these illegal drugsdealers were allowed to threaten me with murder; to gas me (nearly successfully); and to keep me from sleeping from 1988 till 1992 when I finally succeeded in fleeing, for the Amsterdam mayor, the Amsterdam aldermen, the Amsterdam bureaucrats, and the Amsterdam police all refused to do anything for me all the time: Dutch morals, that also helped murdering over 100.000 Dutch Jews during WW II) ...

[3] I am sorry, but I am a philosopher of science and a psychologist, and I really wish to know what is in the pills I take. I do also know this seems to be - these highly educated, highly intelligent days - a rare wish (hundreds or thousands of Phoenix Rising's members - who, is true, may all have cognitive problems and brainfog - discussed the last six years vitamins almost always without indicating (i) the amounts they took, and (ii) the suppliers of their vitamins (?!?!?!), which (together with other information about other users) may have moved some suppliers to remove from their labels almost all information, but again, I am very sorry, but I do want to know what I am being fed "in the interest of my health", also in precise milligrams or micrograms. Thank you, thank you. thank you!! (There are also suppliers who do supply most of the information I want: It is possible.)
