Round 6: Whoa, I’m Halfway There

Sorry for the cheesy title, but it was the only way for me to get it out of my head. I am not a fan of Bon Jovi music, so getting it out of my head was of top priority. As for this round’s numbers:

Chelator Doses Strength
DMSA (dimercaptosuccinic acid) 18 18.75 mg

I had a rough time on day two this round. Nausea induced by eyestrain became a major hurdle for me to overcome, where the only prescription was resting my eyes. My first day off round (yesterday) was also somewhat rough, but I mustered through and came out feeling no better nor worse than before I started the round.

I am very happy to know that I am halfway through my 12-DMSA-only-rounds. The experience has been almost effortless, and I can’t wait for the next six-rounds to fly by just the same.

Sunday Night Ritual Version 5.0

Last week, like the week before, I came in with a total preparation time of 24 minutes. I figured I plateaued and would not see any significant gains moving forward. Last week’s numbers:

Start Time End Time Length
Supplements 10:04 PM 10:14 PM 10 min
DMSA 10:16 PM 10:30 PM 14 min
Total: 24 min

Tonight’s preparation exercise came in dramatically lower; four-minutes to be exact:

Start Time End Time Length
Supplements 9:53 PM 10:02 PM 9 min
DMSA 10:05 PM 10:16 PM 11 min
Total: 20 min

I am not exactly sure what wiped nearly 17% of my preparation time off, but I am not complaining. It appears the majority of savings came from preparing DMSA, but I am surprised to see a minute shaved off when packing supplements. This week I introduced another supplement—a probiotic—into the mix. If anything, I figured I would lose time, not save it.
