Your creatinine is fine as far as I'm aware. I wouldn't worry about your protein intake either. It's not that big a determinant of muscle building capacity, and creatinine isn't a great indicator of how beneficial additional protein would be for you anyways.
PUFA that get incorporated into membranes and other structures tend to make them less stable. I'm actually not certain if oxidized lipids get incorporated into structures all that much (their shape and charge change might prevent enzymes from having much of an affinity for them).
The net effect, whether they are oxidized or not, is that they tend to start chain reactions in places we'd rather not have them.
Additionally, I'm uncertain, but I'd bet that oxidized PUFA don't get made into cytokines well and thus disrupt signalling too.
Yes, I'm afraid, but if you are fat-adapted, you also have a decent amount of fat turnover which will decrease the toxin load of any fat you lose on a more permanent basis.
No, some of the benefits from eating veg will be there just from tea, like the reduction of oxidized lipids in your stomach, but the effects of phytochemical compounds are many and varied, and there just isn't enough variety in green tea.
Better than nothing, though.
Yes, some peptides resulting from partial digestion of casein have opoid effects.
It's actually not entirely clear which aspects of a fast are necessary to achieve the various gene expression changes which are the main thing we're shooting for with a fast.
Protein restriction will upregulate autophagy (protein turnover), and will also improve your ability to utilize protein effectively once you get more again.
If I were you, however, I would just do a 15-20 hour full fast and be done with it for the sake of caution.
Yeah, the aluminium in particular is a nasty one. Looks like a significant causal/exacerbating factor in Alzheimer's disease and other neurodegeneration.
There are aluminium-free antiperspirants that are perfectly effective. Many gel deodorants are free of heavy metals even if they aren't ideal. I presume those don't do the trick for you, though.
However, there are also surgical (yikes!) alternatives which alter axillary nerves to solve the problem on a more permanent basis. My brother had such an operation for his pits and hands and has been quite pleased with the result.
Incidentally, I used to have the same problem in my hands, and improved circulation and nervous system health has largely eliminated it.
Improved gut flora and b6 intake have both been suggested to help with asthma, as has mustard, but I'm a bit more skeptical of that.
I wouldn't worry about the timing of your mineral supplements too much. Just take them with food and some fat.
