A Strange Syndrome

Monday, 14 November 2011 01:40 PM

Question: I have a friend who suffers from “disembarkment syndrome.” She experiences a rolling and rocking sensation that only subsides when she is asleep. Do you have any experience with this condition?

Dr. Blaylock's Answer:

This is a very strange syndrome. I once treated a case that sounds very similar to your friend. My main recommendation to that patient was to increase her intake of magnesium. The time-release form is best at a dose of 500 mg twice a day.

My patient improved significantly after taking magnesium. I then told her to be careful to eliminate all excitotoxins from her foods, eat lots of vegetables, and avoid sugar and inflammatory vegetable oils. After a few weeks she was essentially well.

Other things that should be of benefit include curcumin (500 mg a day), L-theanine (400 mg three times a day), and a combination of methylcobalamin (10,000 IU a day), folate (400 mcg a day), vitamin B-6 (25 mg a day), and riboflavin (100 mg twice a day).

This syndrome occurs most often in women, and some have improved with natural hormone replacement.
