    PTH - the connection of all stress hormones

    "When there is adequate calcium, vitamin D, and magnesium in the diet, PTH is kept to a minimum. When PTH is kept low, cells increase their formation of the uncoupling proteins, that cause mitochondria to use energy at a higher rate, and this is associated with decreased activity of the fatty...

The doctor told me to give my body a break from milk for three months so it can rebuild producing the lactase enzymes and see how I feel from there. In the meantime...

    PUFA Exacerbate, Saturated Fats (SFA) / Albumin / Calcium Ameliorate COVID-19

    A few months ago I posted about a study discussing the role of lipid peroxidation in the COVID-19 pathology. While that study did not make any statements about effects of diet on the disease course/outcome, it did suggest lipid peroxidation blockers such as vitamin E would be therapeutic. Now...

    Progesterone - Not A Sex Hormone, But A Systemic Health Hormone

    An older study, but some great information in there. Not only does it call attention to the fallacy of progesterone being nothing more than a "sex" hormone, but it also warns about the fallacy of equating the synthetic progestins with bioidentical progesterone. At least, when it comes to...

    Non-Milk Calcium Sources?

    I'm not a big fan of milk. It gives me excess mucus. However I do love yogurt and cheese. I also eat a lot of eggs every week, and I hear that egg shells are a good source of calcium. Could yogurt, cheese, and eggshells be used as a good source of calcium over milk? Or any other good sources...

    Seems Like The Calcium Intake Of Hunter Gatherers Would Be Low

    According to dental and skeletal remains, hunter gatherers were taller and healthier than early farmers. I'm thinking the most common foods (depending on location) if you were a hunter gatherer would be rabbit, fish, crustaceans, tubers, nuts, berries, leaves (many of which have oxalates)...
