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
Tyrosine aminotransferase (TAT) plays a role in degradation of tyrosine in the body and may contribute to liver disease and mental retardation.
In this post, we will discuss TAT's role in disease and ways to increase or decrease this enzyme. 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
Tyrosine hydroxylase is a necessary enzyme to create neurotransmitters and protect the body against oxidative stress.
In this post, we will discuss its benefits, downsides, and ways to increase its activity. Read More
There are many ways to improve dopamine levels in the brain - dopamine-enhancing diets, hyper-oxygenation, toxic heavy metal detoxification, exercise, meditation, yoga, but most notably, balancing brain neurotransmitters utilizing nutraceuticals aka "neuronutrients".
KB220z (aka KB220 and formerly known as LG9939, Recomposize, Genotrim) is a "neuronutrient" that acts on optimizing glutamate, dopamine, serotonin, and endorphins in the brain. 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

Our workspaces are indoors, powered by fluorescent blue lights (which blue has its own negatives).
We only get sun rarely and it's either partial (such as through glass while driving to work) or too much (single sessions of long periods hanging out at the beach).
We also try to supplement for the sun by taking vitamin D hormone supplements, which is not as bioactive for creating the active form vitamin D. Read More
