What causes the body to produce alcohol without actually drinking alcohol and is their anything I can do about the effects or to clear it from my body and more importantly my brain? It's been breaking me mentally down for some years now.
I don't drink alcohol but I have all the symptoms of an alcoholic and when I did drink in the past I would "black out". I don't drink anymore(4 years now) but I still have the symptoms of a full blown alcoholic...brain fog, irritability, mental confusion. I was hoping it would clear up by now.
I've been looking at things like Pellagra, Pyroluria and Histadellia. Their symptoms seem to make a lot of sense to me.
I've been taking 3 grams of Niacinamide a day for the last 10 days and it's been really putting me out there, making me super tense with really strong brain fog. I'm also taking 5 grams of Sodium Ascorbate, 50 mg of Zinc, 6000 IU's of Vitamin D, Bee Pollen Granules, and Grape Bitters (which really help, they seem to take a "load of me").
Easy answer. A major candida overgrowth in the small intestine can flood the body with a small, but steady, of ethanol alcohol. The candida will also send toxic acetaldehyde into your blood stream, Your body uses molybdemun to detox the acteldehyde. But your body has a very limited store of this trace mineral. Once you run out of molybdemun the symptoms can become unbearable.
Look into pantethine to detox the acetaldehyde, its also good for the adrenal glands. I was experimenting with niacin too and have felt pretty weird from taking it. Make sure you take a b-complex or nutritional yeast with the pantethine. You will need prebiotics and probiotics along with some sort of a candida diet to rid you of candida so you can eventually stop supplementing.
I have had the exact same symptoms for the last 3 years and so has my 8 year old daughter. The alcohol level did show up in her blood stream at her last doctor visit...as well as a lot of free radical damage and webs of aspergillus niger. We are trying homeopathic remedies to build good bacteria flora and hopefully weed out the bad. We follow a strict healthy diet. The majority of the infestation is in the small intestine so I would LOVE to hear of successful ways of cleansing this area. We have also tried molybdenum, pantethine, b vitamins, etc with no relief. I have taken grape bitters for at least a year now. Nothing seems to help except for the brief minutes that I am deep sweating in the infrared sauna.
