Jessesmom1987, you did a great job of deciphering the scientific article for us, and I thank you. I had the beginnings of a terrible headache two days ago, which I believed to be due to "ammonia in my brain". I took one Ornithine capsule, and the headache went away, with no need for any "pain killer" medicine.
When I found this forum, I tried to open the article (The Inhibition of Arginase by N -Hydroxy-L-Arginine Controls the Growth of Leishmania Inside Macrophages) to read it myself, but my tablet wasn't cooperating. What #102879 said didn't sound right to me. It didn't match with anything in my personal research or experience. So, especially since I couldn't open the article to read it for myself, I was particularly grateful for your explanation. Good catch!
I value Hulda Clark 's advice, and it was from her books that I learned the value of L-Ornithine.
"Dr. Clark recommends ornithine in the course of the parasite cleanse, because it degrades ammonia in the liver, which according to Clark is released when parasites are killed. Dr. Clark thinks that insomnia is mainly due to ammonia toxicity in the brain. Supplementing ornithine therefore allows for a good nightís sleep. It can be taken continuously without harmful effects or potential of addiction."
