Paraoxonase 1 (PON1) is an enzyme that plays a role in most diseases.
In this post, we will discuss how you can use PON1 to improve overall health, longevity, and detox mechanisms.Read More
I have visited ERs and hospitals during my adventure to regain my health and have had my fair share of scans.
If you've ever had a MRI with contrast before, then there's likelihood that you have some levels of the lanthanide element gadolinium stored in your body and/or brain.
In this post, we will discuss the epigenetic effects of gadolinium and some experimental ways to remove it from the body.Read More
Although it may have had an important role in scientific history, mercury has been found over the years to cause significant damage to the brain and body.
In this post, we will discuss the different types of mercury, how they affect the body, and what you can do to effectively remove them.Read More
In western society, cadmium (Cd) is found in our everyday environment.
It causes toxic effects to the whole body, including the cells and mitochondria.
In this post, we will discuss how cadmium affects the body and what you can do to protect yourself.Read More
Amentoflavone Is Cool (AF) :D
Amentoflavone (AF) is a naturally occurring biflavonoid found in many (over 120) natural plants, such as Gingko Biloba and St. John's Wort.
Thunbergia Laurifolia is a traditional herb in Thailand that has a variety potential benefits.Read More
Fluoride is a trace element, but it is found in our daily exposure more than a "trace".
In small amounts, it appears to be okay.
The problems with fluoride appear to be in chronic use of it over long periods of time, and/or being exposed to a high dose of it in a single instance.
Apart from skeletal tissue and teeth, fluoride can cause changes in the kidneys, liver, thyroid, parathyroid, pituitary gland, testis, muscle tissues, stomach, brain, neurons, and immune system.
I have mild dental fluorosis, probably from drinking too much fluoridated water, using fluoridated toothpaste, along with taking fluoride at the dentist to protect my enamel.Read More
Deferoxamine is a powerful drug that has potential benefits in restoring neuronal health, especially in those with stroke, Alzheimer's Disease, Parkinson's Disease, spinal cord injury and sleep disorders.
In this post I've gone through it's potential benefits and alternatives to this drug.Read More
Ziziphus jujuba (jujube or Chinese dates), a plant in the family Rhamnaceae, is used in several Asian countries as a food and traditional medicine for over 3000 years.
The different parts of the Jujube plant (seeds, fruit, leaves, roots, etc) have different functions on the body.Read More
Not all artificial sweeteners aka (nonnutritive sweeteners (NNSs) or low-calorie sweeteners (LCS)) are bad.
Use of artificially sweetened foods (ASF) has increased in the past 50 years in the USA and there are clear parallels with changes in the prevalence of being overweight and the rise of obesity. R
Just because something is deemed as "safe" by the FDA, does not make it safe for humans.
In this post, I will break down the effects of artificial sweeteners on the body and give an alternative list to which ones are "safer" or even beneficial.Read More
Cerebral Dopamine Neurotropic Factor (CDNF) is a newly discovered (and very powerful) way to regrow damaged dopaminergic neurons.
It has shown have anti-inflammatory effects that are very beneficial in models of Parkinson's Disease.Read More
Electromagnetic Fields (EMFs) are perceived as environmental stressors on living organisms.
But since man-made EMFs are a very new stressor for humans, our cells have not developed proper defensive mechanisms against them.
For example, EMFs are classified as possibly carcinogenic (cancer causing) as is arsenic, chloroform, cigarettes, DDT, estrogenics, heavy metals, roundup, etc.
It seems clear that we would not willingly expose ourselves to these other agents, so why would we expose ourselves EMFs?
Is it from digital dementia (using electronics to remember everything for us) or FOMO (fear of missing out)?
In this post, to simplify everything, I'll try to stay away from quantum physics as much as possible. 😉
I'll also show as unbiased of an opinion of EMFs as possible, but I do give you my opinion towards the end.
I'll also provide ways you can protect yourself from the downsides of EMFs.Read More
Arsenic is so common, but it is not talked about much.
It is hidden in our food and supplements, but has devastating effects on the body that we will discuss below.
We will also discuss what you can do to protect yourself from arsenic in our toxic environment.Read More
The Actual Dangers of Taking Proton Pump Inhibitors and What You Can Do About It
Proton pump inhibitors are used very commonly by gastroenterologists for anyone with "stomach" issues.
It is probably the first thing they will give a patient before looking further into what the real cause is.
They have serious short-term and long-term downsides and are destroying our brain and our gut.Read More
Get tan while being indoors. Oh yeah, and deactivate autoimmunity.
Alpha-Melanocyte Stimulating Hormone plays a role in many autoimmune, inflammatory, and chronic conditions.
Cancer and Alzheimer's are inversely correlated.
Biomarkers in cancer and Alzheimer's seem to be opposites. Let's delve into why.
Ever since I gave up alcohol, I very rarely get sick, my sleep has improved drastically, my mental health is much more stable, I have MUCH more confidence in myself, I am more accepting of others, my social skills have improved in EVERY aspect, and I get "drunk" in much better ways.Read More
During the 80's, LA was believed to be only a deadend waste product from anaerobic exercise.
The idea that lactate is a waste product of the metabolism and a main cause of fatigue, should no longer be considered as an indisputable truth.
This molecule, instead, can be shuttled among cells and, inside the cells, among different organelles, thanks to specific monocarboxylate carriers, and seems to be a fuel for many cells, including neurons, in conditions of oxygen shortage.
It can behave as a signal, eliciting in the cells’ responses which counteract stress, allowing at least an attempt of adaptive responses.Read More
