After seeing the hindawi link from Doc I went searching and found this on the NATAP.org site showing improvements in neurological disorders, its very encouraging, Also my brother who did 48weeks of Intf/Riba(2005) to attain SVR was formally a computer programmer until he became too unwell. 12 months after SVR he started studying "python" a computer programming language and achieved a score in the top 1% internationally, I know n=1 but its still very encouraging.

My own experience is one of hell with emotions and brain fog, loss of memory, and extreme depression,, physically my autoimmune system went wild, all of a sudden I could not eat most of the foods I was used to, wheat, dairy, eggs, nuts, and chemicals in food made me quite ill. I had arthritis, excema, asthma, and seemed not to be able to digest much foods, had to go almost vegetarian to keep food in my gut. I also had extreme tinitus at around 15decibells at around 9600khz. The tinitus especially drove me nutso, so glad it is gone. Most of these issues have gone after 3 weeks of sof/dac, I have so much energy now I got a push bike and ride it a couple of times each weekend to move the blood about. I no longer come home from work and collapse, instead I'm getting into cooking and going for walks in the evening in a local park area. The guys at work suggest I have had a personality transplant,, if only they knew the truth.
3 years cured, Sof/Dac, thanks Doc Freeman, hepc only a distant memory, go for it ppl
