Right now as I write this, I am watching the morning sun, sitting on a bench in Dolores Park with my shirt off an laptop out - in 50ºF weather!
Last night I had no sleep as I just traveled from FL to CA and helping my brother pack until 4am… and I woke up around 5am (8am my normal time… thanks jetlag).
That’s why I believe today’s topic of discussion should be circadian rhythm cues, also called Zeitgebers.
Zeitgebers (the German word for “time givers”) are signals that help synchronize the body's circadian clock with the environment.
In this post, we will discuss the most common zeitgebers, how they affect our circadian rhythm, and how we can use them to enhance our sleep, stress, weight, social life, and more. Read More
Are you someone who could handle their alcohol until getting sick, then any sort of alcohol in any amount may make you sick?
This is a common problem with those after their immune system has gone haywire.
In this post, I will breakdown and discuss mechanisms behind the loss of tolerance towards alochol Read More
Spilanthes is a genus of plants that have major potential as an aphrodisiac and anti-aging tool.
In this post, we will discuss spilanthes, the benefits of its bioactive components, and where to get it. Read More
Ecklonia cava is a powerful brown algae that shows promising potential in many metabolic diseases.
In this post, we will discuss the benefits of Ecklonia cava, where to buy it, and its mechanism of action. Read More
Zeolites are very promising for improving environment protection, detoxication, human nutrition status and immunity, separation of various biomolecules and cells, construction of biosensors and detection of biomarkers of various diseases, proper drug/gene delivery, antioxidant regulation, and tissue engineering.
In this post, we will discuss where zeolites come from, its benefits/downsides, and where to get zeolite. Read More
Many of my chemically sensitive clients have reactions from inhaling, eating, and skin/air contact with chemicals.
Haptens effect on the immune system supports why they can wear a gas mask in a perfumey room and still get sick.
I haven't seen anyone else online talking about haptens and I've noticed that a lot of my allergies and chemical sensitivities have improved by reducing my hapten exposure.
In study models, haptens can be used in to induce food intolerance, chemical sensitivities, skin disease, and autoimmunity.
In this post, we will discuss the how haptens may have detrimental effects on humans. Read More
Recent evidence suggests that 70–90% of chronic disease is likely related to environmental determinants.
In this post, we will discuss how biotoxin accumulation may cause chronic illness. Read More
Dr. Thomas E Levy and I discuss common misconceptions about disease, specifically: vitamin C, calcium, iron and root canals. Read More
Dr. Denis Wilson and I discuss how to monitor and regulate thyroid function without the need for blood tests. Read More
Dr. Nathan Bryan and I discuss a common underlying problem in most chronic illness - dysregulation of nitric oxide. Read More
Recent data suggests that chronically low levels of circulating LPS may be associated with the development of metabolic diseases such as insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease. R
In this post, we will discuss how LPS affects the body and how to reverse endotoxemia. Read More
Dopamine is extremely important for everyday function and plays a much larger role in the body than just bonding, motivation, cognition, emotion, well-being, and movement.
Unfortunately, our environment today is very good at manipulating and hijacking our dopamine system.
In this post we will discuss, how/why dopamine is produced, how chronic inflammation affects dopamine, what are some quick fixes for dopamine, and what are some long lasting dopamine builders, as well how to avoid losing dopamine. Read More
Recent cancer research has helped us understand how the body detoxes.
By studying upregulated genes in tumorous cells, we were able to find the Nuclear Erythroid 2–Related Factor 2 (NRF2) pathway.
NRF2 is a major transcription factor in detoxing the body and keeping it healthy.
In this post, we will discuss the benefits/downsides of NRF2 activation, as well as why NRF2 may be hurting you more than helping you (and what you can do about it). Read More
Biofilms (sometimes described as "cities for microbes") are glue-like membranes produced by microbes (bacteria, fungi and yeasts) to protect themselves being discovered by our immune system, among other functions (described below).
In this post, we're going to go over what diet and supplements (as well as advanced techniques) can be used to prevent and/or kill unwanted biofilms from common bacterial and fungal pathogens. Read More
This is a simple explanation of the Bredesen Protocol, also known as ReCODE.
It is a cutting edge protocol to reverse Alzheimer's and has been successful for over 250 patients.
It includes the complete guide to the protocol. Read More
Since the late 1970s, the use of glyphosate-based herbicides (GBHs) has increased approximately 100-fold.
Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Roundup®.
In this post, we will discuss glyphosate's toxic effects (even at extremely low doses). 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
Histamine intolerance comes from an imbalance of eaten/produced histamine and ability to break it down.
Mast cells, food poisoning, histamine metabolism/liberators and more can exacerbate histamine intolerance. Read More
Beyond Diabetes: Fight Cancer, Aging, Dysbiosis
Metformin is a standard anti-diabetic drug, taken by millions since 1957. It is currently being prescribed to over 150 million individuals worldwide.
It is one of the few miracle drugs that has ever been created.
Many of the benefits metformin seems to have is through increasing production of butyrate and HDAC inhibition, in butyrate deprived diabetes patients. Read More
BH4, or tetrahydrobiopterin, is used for many imperative and fundamental processes in the body. Read More
