Blue Dye and the Guaifenesin Protocol

blue dye-1This is a Caution Item! Blue dye has been found to keep some people from clearing on the Guaifenesin Protocol.

It started out as people on Mucinex weren’t clearing well. Now we have heard from 2 reliable sources Dr St Amand is telling his patients to cut all blue (and purple) dye out of topical products and all medication. See his post on Guaifenesin and Blue Dye here: Fibromyalgia Treatment Center.

Merry Christmas from the Mann home to yours!

Hello my friends!

Is life totally a blur right now, with all the parties, dinners, decorating, gift buying, traveling, packing, wrapping, baking?

Why don’t you take a minute? Deep breath in, long slow breath out. Do that 3 times. Are you scoffing at me because you simply don’t have time for this silly stuff?

FAQ: What are cytochromes?

FAQCytochromes are a little more medical-jargon-y than I am medical-knowledge-y. LOL ๐Ÿ˜€

From what I understand, they are a natural and healthy part of our body that fights off and kills what they see as invaders. When you take alot of meds, your cytochromes can kick in and start fighting your meds. It’s why sometimes we have to increase our dose of Guaifenesin or take some FA with our regular clearing dose.

I lived a “crunchy granola mom life” I treated my kids with oils, herbals, and homeopathy. I only used allopathic medicine when those did not resolve the issues…

Taking Mucinex for the Guaifenesin Protocol? Some things you need to know…

Guaifenesin Mucinex WalmartI am throwing alot at you right now. Don’t let it overwhelm you, you are not alone. SO many of our members have gone through exactly what you are experiencing right now. The beginning part is the most tricky. We’re here to help.

So the FA layer on the Mucinex can mimic clearing– which means that you FEEL like you’re clearing because of the increase in symptoms you are looking for, but it could be not enough guai and just moving around the phosphates, redepositing them, making you feel horrible for no good reason.

In one Mucinex tab, you get only 500mg LA and 100mg FA. For most people, you need 600mg LA twice a day to clear.
