In this post we will focus on the mast cell-glia (microglia, astrocyte, oligodendrocyte) interaction with our body and how they contribute to chronic inflammatory diseases such as CIRS and SALI.Read More
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

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

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
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
