This is an experiment for balancing lysine/arginine content of food for people who experience inos overexpression.

Any changes need to be done very very slowly to prevent strong withdrawal symptoms, which can be very painful and uncomfortable. 

Inhibition can be done by keeping to a ratio suitable for the person, this can be anywhere between 1 and 3, depending on how much inos is expressed. The need may also fluctuate, when experiencing sensory overload, work with a higher than usual level. 

Other non-lysine inhibitors can also be used, as well as supplementation to reduce any deficiencies and overloads that may contribute to the inos overexpression. Examples of these are quercetin, zinc, b-vitamins, inositol etc. 

The Lysine approach to inhibition may not suitable for people with HIV and they my need to focus on 'other' inhibitors.

Very important: The goal is not to reduce arginine, but to increase the lysine/arginine ratio. In rare cases persons may experience a builtup of arginine, in which case they can also adapt their diet to compensate for this - it is not covered by this work, but these conditions are documented via medical journals. 

If each column has a pink cell, the row is significant for balancing. If a row has one or two grey cells, the amounts of arginine in the item might be insignificantly small, or the ratio is very balanced, or the quantity used of the item is so small that it is insignificant.
