Common Genetic Patterns I See In TBI Clients - Who Failed To Recover Quickly

Updated: Jan 30

As luck and coincidence would have it, I began to have people find me who like me ( I have had 3) had suffered a TBI (traumatic brain injury) but failed to recover quickly ( less than 90 days), and experience pro-longed and incomplete healing. I am up to 10 clients now (including me) who have had TBI's that didn't fully heal initially, some from many years ago, some more recent (less than 5 years). Although this sample size certainly isn't statistically significant, the types of genetic mutations I see in common across this group are striking - and the rarity of these mutations in a normal population (thank you gnom AD Browser!) is uncanny.


This blog entry is a rough draft, and as the days go on I will tidy it up, add more information, and details, and more fully source with references and findings. However, i am leaping a bit here, as i am hopeful others who have struggled to heal from TBI's will take me up on my offer - to let me look at your genetic data for free - and see if the common patterns hold - so I can potentially increase my sample size. You don't need to become a client to be in my sample, just a data point. My intent is to get enough of a sample size (~30), where I can publish a paper, and have a couple of M.D.'s co-author with me who have expressed interest. So, if you have a TBI, and haven't healed and have your genetic data - please reach out. If you don't have your genetic data , I am open to discussing how we can get you a robust set - I will direct you how without charging you consulting fees.


COMMON PATTERN #1 - UPREGULATED iNOS (NOS2)

This is the most striking pattern I see in these clients. They all have one or both mutations on iNOS (NOS2) that have research demonstrating they upregulate the iNOS enzyme, producing excessive Nitric Oxide. One of these mutations has research that shows it upregulates iNOS over 4.5X! Why is excess nitric oxide so important, and what are the symptoms. I would like to outline 5 key things that happens when iNOS gets over expressed:

  1. Free radicals and oxidative stress (super oxide, peroxynitrite, hydroxyl radicals) - fatigue, inflammation.

  2. BH4 / Tetrahydrobiopterin gets oxidized and depleted - effects neurotransmitters (mood)

  3. Low blood pressure (dizzyness), POTS like symptoms, poor circulation (cold hands and feet)

  4. NAD / NADPH gets depleted (fatigue)

  5. Platelet Activation - poor oxygen perfusion and delivery (fatigue, cognitive challenges)



First, we thank Martin Pall, who explored this years ago - related to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Excess nitric oxide combines with super oxide (free radical) and forms the more damaging free radical peroxynitrite - which can also go on and form the damaging free radical hydroxyl radical. Ouch! Lots of oxidative stress here. Further, Martin Pall, has published a ton of research that many cardiac events are preluded by "NOS Uncoupling" where the excess nitric oxide consumes all the available BH4 (Tetrahydrobiopterin) and then when BH4 runs out, it creates a massive cascade of free radicals and oxidative stress. This is a precursor to many cardiac events [1,2,4,18]. The second thing that excess nitric oxide does is it creates low blood pressure with symptoms like POTS, cold hand and feet, dizziness, etc. Excess nitric oxide also results in poor circulation and blood all over the body, including the brain, resulting in low oxygen delivery (cold hands and feet anybody!). Third, an upregulated iNOS enzyme uses NAD / NADPH as a cofactor in its reaction and consumes a ton of this - and NAD / NADPH is the most common co factor for enzymatic reactions in the body - when this gets depleted - people are TIRED! Its one reason why many athletes are now paying for expensive NAD IV treatments - its one of the basic common denominators in creating energy potential in the body. Fourth, excess nitric oxide oxidizes BH4 which is a cofactor in turning Tyrosine into Dopamine (low mood anyone!). And BH4 is also a cofactor for creating Serotonin from Tryptophan and 5HTP (anxiety anyone ?). Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, excess nitric oxide from iNOS causes platelet activation, which in turn leads to low oxygen perfusion and delivery - as the activated platelets clump up and grab on to red cells - which deliver oxygen. The impacts of these two mutations on iNOS are serious - and common across all 10 TBI clients. When this enzyme was stabilized through basic diet changes and basic supplementation - positive changes were seen.


Further, many have been concluding recently, based on Pall's initial work, and from further exploration into Covid 19 - that it is in fact eNOS (NOS3) that is needed most for endothelial health, and it is iNOS (NOS2) that can compete and disrupt eNOS and lead to NOS uncoupling, and then endothelial dysfunction and cardiac related issues [9].


COMMON PATTERN #2 - COMPROMISED PRODUCTION OF GLYCINE FROM SHMT1, SHMT2, AND / OR GCAT ENZYMES

All ten of these clients had significant compromise in one or more of the enzymes that create glycine from serine (SHMT1 - in the exosome and SHMT2 - inside the mitochondria) or from L-Threonine (GCAT). The cofactors for each of these reactions is B6 (p5p form), which is commonly depleted in many people for a variety of reasons. In another article to be explored more fully i will discuss how supplementing with glycine can draw glutamate down a pathway and away from the brain to reduce neuro excitatory / inflammation. It is for this reason, why i believe so many respond so well to glycine supplementation - in addition to being one of the three building blocks to glutathione (Glutamate, Cysteine, and Glycine). HOWEVER - CAUTION HERE FOLKS - NAC SUPPLEMENTATION - THE OTHER BUILDING BLOCK TO GLUTATHIONE ASIDE FROM GLUTAMINE - WILL COMBINE WITH EXCESS IRON AND CREATE HYDROXYL RADICALS (FATIGE ANYONE FROM NAC!).


COMMON PATTERN #3 - EXCESS GLUTAMATE

In the majority but not all 10 of these cases, there are compromises in the glutamate system that lead to a build up of glutamate. If there is a B6 or Magnesium deficiency, it becomes even more problematic - as glutamate isn't converted to GABA (calming neurotransmitter) efficiently. Like a train station, there are literally a half dozen escape routes for glutamate - but if they are compromised, glutamate can build up, and create all sorts of issues from poor sleep, to anxiety, to sensory overload, etc. Oxaloacetate is one of the pathways out of this train station intersection - and is marketed as a PMS supplement! What/why!? Because glutamate builds up during a woman's monthly cycle - there is a physiological reason for these issues! So, women, if this was an issue for you - glutamate is worthy of exploration.


COMMON PATTERN #4 - COMPROMISED NMDA RECEPTORS (GRIN ENZYMES)

This was first identified by Martin Pall years ago, and he correctly connect the NMDA receptors (GRIN genes) to the TRP receptors as well [5]. These are also linked to EMF sensitivity and the CACNA1C gene. Although observationally, I have seen EMF sensitivity with no CANCNA1C mutations but with iNOS upregulations. When the NMDA receptors have significant mutations - it compounds glutamate sensitivity issues, along with EMF sensitivity issues. Almost all 10 cases had very significant NMDA mutations.


COMMON PATTERN #5 - COMPROMISED ANTIOXIDANT SYSTEMS - ESPECIALLY GLUTATHIONE. CATALASE AND SUPER OXIDE DISMUTASE ALSO NOTED.

Most folks are well versed in the basic anti oxidant systems (Glutathione, Catalase and Super Oxide Dismutase) [x]. The GST genes - glutathione S- transferese enzymes support detoxification of metals, chemicals, molds. The GPX genes - glutathione peroxidase enzymes - support the detoxification of hydrogen peroxide from reactions with ammonia, fatty acids, etc. The GPX enzyme play a critical role in platelet activation - because without proper disposal of the lipid by products - inflammatory compounds like Leukotrine B4 become excessive. In the absence of glutathione, the body will use carnosine to detox some of 12-HETE / 12-PETE by products in the ALOX 12 pathway. GPX4 is the only gpx enzyme expressed inside the mitochondria, just like SOD2. Mutations in GPX4 and SOD2 are impactful in creating oxidative stress inside the mitochondria - which can lead to downregulation of the krebs cycle (fatigue anybody!) as a response to manage the oxidative stress. Ron Davis has his own theory here on the - Aconotate Shunt. GPX1 is the most ubiquitously expressed GPX enzyme - and it has correlations with all cause mortality - its important! GPX1 mutations were very common in this group of 10 cases [x]. It is compromises in the GPX system that are most common in this group. iNOS / NOS2 is expressed primarily in the GI tract, as is GPX2. When there are mutations of upregulated iNOS and GPX2 - its double trouble for gut issues. Lots of super oxide, lots of hydrogen peroxide, which probably over whelms GPX2.


Its also important to note the GSR enzyme, it recycles oxidized glutathione back to reduced glutathione. If this gene is severely mutated, one must be very careful with exogenous glutathione supplementation or upregulation the GST or GPX enzymes. The first step is getting the GSR enzyme functioning!


Also of note in the anti oxidant system regulation are Keap1, NRF2, and HMOX1. Significant mutations were seen in these cluster of genes in this population - and they are also seen in CFS cases.


COMMON PATTERN #6:

COMPROMISE IN PLATELET ACTIVATION PATHWAYS - THERE ARE A DOZEN!

So this is a bit of catch all for platelet activation, but in fairness iNOS creates platelet activation too, so its in here, but described above. I will briefly note the 8 pathways I see related to this issue, acknowledging there may be more of course that we dont know about yet. Most of these separate pathways are connected in some way , as Martin Pall noted in his research years ago, its my best attempt to separate things into parts of a whole:

8a) Upregulated iNOS / NOS2 - See above

8b) Compromised CCR1, CCR3, CCR5 Enzymes (Rantes)

8c) TNF Alpha Pathway which includes - NFK Beta, HFE, IL-10, IL-6

8d) PLA2 pathway

8e) ALOX 5 Pathway

8f) ALOX 12 Pathway

8g) COX / PTGIS Pathway

8h) ACE 2 / Angiotensin 2 / HMOX1 pathway [8]

8i) Keap1 / NrF2 / HMOX 1 / BLRVA pathway

8j) Prostacyclin pathway

8k) Thromboxanne A2 pathway

8l) Protectins and Resolvins Pathway

8m) NOX1, NOX3, NOX4, NOX5, Il-6, SIRT1 pathway [4,10]

8N) GPX1-7, GSR, NRF2, Keap1 pathway


There is alot to the above regarding platelet activation as you can see - and i will devote an entire blog article to this specific topic to do it justice. Suffice to say, all 10 TBI clients had major compromises in multiple pathways, and every client that tested for elevated levels of two compounds that indicate activated platelets - all were elevated. In this blog article on Platelet Activation i will also describe a variety of tests you can explore to decipher if this is an issue from very inexpensive ones that make you suspicious its at play, to the full deal with over a dozen specific markers.


I haven't mentioned specific locations or SNP's related to the above genes - its intentional. Yes, in some cases some very specific SNP's are critical, but also the overall evaluation of the gene across many many locations - sometimes 100+. I encourage you to seek the counsel of somebody trained on how to evaluate specific SNP's as well as the aggregate level of mutations for a particular gene relative to a normal population to assess its level of compromise.


I also haven't mentioned specific solutions for each of the above, most have several options - and again encourage you to seek the counsel and guidance of somebody who knows based on research and has experience doing so.


Most of the 10 cases did have gut related issues as a consequence, not cause of their issues, and that also needed to be addressed, but secondarily. Fut2 mutations make things worse - as they compromise the ability to synthesize B vitamins - need for neurotransmitters and energy production (krebs cycle).


More to come, with references, research, and data....please check back in.....and please contact me if you have suffered a TBI and want to explore the genetics........I really do need more case examples. Most of these individuals experienced quick improvement related to course correcting some of the above issues. For some it was more of a gradual improvement over 3 to 6 months. Many were stuck for over a decade.


ECT INJURY

Minor update. I have had two people contact me that have had ECT injury. One was the primary source of their TBI - and provided their genetic data - their data revealed that many of the above major patterns were present genetically. The other has become a client, and we are awaiting to complete the genetic testing. My 10 case examples listed above were all from more traditional head impact TBI's (e.g. car wreck, fall, bike wreck, head to head combat, etc).
