A few weeks ago I had a skype consult with Johnny Atman. We reviewed a lot of my history, symptoms and lab tests. He made some suggestions that might be beneficial based on the above. He also appears to have a very strong understanding of epigentics. That really had my interest!
I've suffered most of my life with severe anxiety (as well as constant generalized anxiety), panic, agoraphobia and depression.
One of the supps that was recommended was 500 mg of L-ornithine. I had never heard of L-ornithine before so I ran it by my primary care doc (integrated MD) and he said that's fine and in fact I can even take 500 mg 2x a day if needed!
After about 2 days on the L-ornithine the anxiety was gone! I mean really gone! I was afraid to speak too soon because I thought I might be imagining it.
But today I tested it out and drove 20+ miles to see a famous Chinese acupuncturist that I wanted to meet for some time.
And I did it with zero anxiety! I have not driven that far in years! I was completely relaxed and I couldn't believe it!
I knew I had sulffuration pathway issues but this is how I think understand it based on what I was told/shown:
Part of the reason for this is that a mutated ASL gene may not be able to form arginine and fumarate properly. This could lead to a buildup of ammonia in the blood, leading to anxiety.
Also. a mutated ARG1 gene may not be able to form a stable arginase enzyme. This also can cause a build up of ammonia and arginine in the body!
I was also told this...
//Variants in PEMT can impede choline production. Choline is needed by the liver and brain. PEMT variants have been tied to fatty liver. When there are PEMT variants, use CBS/BHMT with meals.
//And the CBS variants, (especially the CBS C699T), will cause homocysteine to rush downstream too quickly, potentially causing high glutamate and ammonia.
Of course there can be other reasons for the high anxiety - maybe not just the ammonia - such as H. Pylori, candida etc - but all I know so far is that I feel SO much better!
I've got a long way to go to improve my health in other areas, but by far, this is an amazing beginning!
Thank you Brooke, for sharing your own experience so others could find some hope. ❤️️

Had a session with Johnny Atman the other day and he was able to pinpoint some issues other practitioners did not dig deep enough to find. He found that my SOD snps were functioning at just 17%! What this means is a build-up of a chemical called peroxynitrite which causes severe oxidative stress. I've known for a while now that I've had oxidative stress issues, but thought it was from my methylation snps. However, I've been taking methylation snps for several years and while they brought down some of the oxidative stress, I've still had a lot remaining.
He was also able to tell me why I basically live off lecithin and why it helps so much - I have homozygous snps for all of my PEMT genes. PEMT is the gene the body uses to make phosphatidylcholine. Mine is basically not working at all.
Johnny's analysis explained so much of what is going on and where on the genome these problems are happening. If you aren't recognizing the snps I mentioned, it's because Johnny has had training to understand 600 snps, not just methylation snps.
For those of us who aren't getting completely well by addressing methylation issues alone I highly recommend him!!
He's definitely the next step in the health puzzle for me and I'm excited to start treating the snps that he found and get more of my health back :) :)
He is a a very caring, knowledgeable, and understanding person and I consider him a close friend. We've been talking online since he joined this group. Just a very quality person. Thank you Johnny for the help you are offering the difficult cases. I share your love of people and your desire help them heal, so everything you do for the people in my group I greatly appreciate .

After years of seeing countless of health professionals and none that have helped, Johnny was recommended to me via a FB page and I’ve had monthly Skype sessions since August 2016. The issues that I presented to Johnny he understood and had an answer for and that in itself was a huge relief.
The treatment protocol Johnny as put me on has helped immensely. I’m not as anxious or depressed and have even lost weight.
I’m still waiting for the 23andme testing to come through and look forward to the rest of my healing journey as I know I am in the right hands.
Thanks to Johnny I am well and truly on the road to recovery.

Thank you Johnny for helping me with my low moods and anxiety. Since taking the extract you have prescribed I am a lot calmer and my breathing has improved. My outlook has brightened. I am looking forward to future help and hoping to improve even more.

When I came to see Johnny, I was angry, short tempered, went through a number of relationships, not getting on with people at work, having punch-ups, drinking like there was no tomorrow.
Since I have started the protocol, I have noticed that I am more happy, better concentration, no anxiety, sleeping better, better confrontation skills.
I am on my third month of supplements and my whole family is happy with my progress, thanks to Johnny Atman.
