    Why Doesn't Excess Zinc Cause Grey Hair Via Induced Copper Deficiency? (Gray Hair Either:)

    Everyone says excess zinc can cause a copper deficiency and on this forum people think topical or dietary copper can sometimes restore hair color (also suggested by Dr. Peat). But zinc is such a popular supplement that lots of people like @youngsinatra will overdose for various reasons. So I...

    Which one do you mainly prefer to increase your copper level? Why? If diet, what do you eat, and how much? If supplementation, what do you take, how much?

    Recovery from overmedication of Thyroid Hormone

    Hey guys, I would appreciate some help crowd sourcing this issue I'm having. I have family history of thyroid issues and after reading Broda Barnes' book I was a full believer on what was ailing me. I took his dosing advice and tracked temp and pulse to figure out the dose. I started at 1/2...

    Prevent nutrient deficiency from processed sugar consumption

    Everything a humans does drains certain nutrients, so this is a not a demonization of sugar but as we know sugar can increase the metabolism and cause an increased demand for nutrients, like thyroid supplementation. A logical but somewhat reductionist approach is to incorporate a non caloric...

    Vitamin D Deficiency Can Lead to Dementia And Stroke

    Despite this being an observational study, the analysis for extraneous factors has been strong enough that the authors believe the link between vitamin D deficiency and dementia/stroke is causal. As the study itself says, almost 20% of dementia/stroke cases could be prevented by simply...

    People who take thyroid what made you able to feel it working?

    Hey everyone, I’ve been taking thyroid on and off for over a year and unfortunately I’ve never been able to make it work for me. It doesn’t increase my heart rate or body temp. I eat a standard peat diet with sugared milk, weekly oysters and liver, orange juice, oxtail and lamb shank. I have no...

    Hiding in Plain Sight: Modern Thiamine Deficiency

    Abstract Thiamine or vitamin B1 is an essential, water-soluble vitamin required for mitochondrial energetics—the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). It is a critical and rate-limiting cofactor to multiple enzymes involved in this process, including those at the entry points and at...

    Should you quit coffee to fix a vitamin B1 deficiency?

    In my newsletter, I asked which topic people would like to see the most, and coffee and B1 were upvoted the most. I know it was also a "hot" topic a while back on the forum, so that's why I decided to post it here as well. View:

    Metabolic (energy) deficiency may be the cause of Parkinson Disease (PD)

    The dogma that PD is just a simple dopamine deficiency manifesting in genetically vulnerable individuals is quickly becoming untenable. It is well-known among clinicians that administering dopamine precursors such as L-Dopa, or selective dopamine agonists such as pramipexole has limited...

    Nine out of ten COVID-19 deaths may be due to vitamin D deficiency

    A remarkable claim in this study, but not really surprising to people who have been studying the vitamin D effects on the immune system. While the study was observational, as the authors explain, the correlation between vitamin D insufficiency and COVID-19 mortality was so high that the authors...

    Help Desperately Needed: Ridged Fingernails!

    I don't know when this started, but it's bothering me a lot. I have these pretty pronounced vertical ridge-like structures in my fingernails. It was pretty hard to photograph, but I tried my best at it and editing it a bit to make them more easily visible: It may not look like much, but they...

    Autism Four Times Likelier When Mother's Thyroid Is Weakened

    Pregnant women who don't make nearly enough thyroid hormone are nearly 4 times likelier to produce autistic children than healthy women. The association emerged from a study of more than 4,000 Dutch mothers and their children, and it supports a growing view that autism spectrum disorders can be...

    Hypoxia, Nutrient Deficiency Rapidly Rewires Cells For Cancer Metabolism

    One of the earliest observations of Otto Warburg when he studied cancer was that anything that interferes with oxygen supply to the cell effectively caused the cell to become "cancerous". In other words, he opined that cancer was essentially an adaptation to a lack of oxygen, not a mutant gory...

    Aging Likely Caused By Decreased Respiration / Metabolism, Not Genetic Mutations

    It looks like after a century of utter idiotism in biology and medicine, those two disciplines may finally be getting on the right course. Despite the fact that the "rate of living" theory is still the dominant theory of aging in the halls of academia, a new generation of scientists is emerging...

    Dietary Niacinamide (B3) Deficiency May Be A Cause Of Schizophrenia

    As many of my readers know, the link between niacinamide and schizophrenia dates back at least the 1950s and possibly much earlier. The late Abram Hoffer, one of the founders of the orthomolecular approach, was convinced that stress was a huge factor in mental illness and ran several successful...

    Lack Of Light Exposure May Be The Main Cause Of The Myopia Boom

    As the study says, there has been a drastic increase in myopia cases over the last century. Early research pointed at excessive indoor book reading and studying as a cause of the epidemic. Unsurprisingly, these initial claims were quickly drowned by fake research denying that such a link exists...

    Vitamin D Deficiency Can Cause Heart Failure

    As many readers know, there is an epidemic of vitamin D deficiency. It is of worldwide proportions, but is visible mainly in "developed" countries in the Western world. The official stance of mainstream medicine is that while vitamin D deficiency is undesirable, it does not really have much...

    Study Links Stroke To Vitamin B1 Deficiency

    The study was observational but I am inclined to see a causative role of the deficiency for stroke. My inclination stems from the thousands of intervention studies with vitamin B1 to treat a host of neurological issues including accelerating recovery from stroke. In addition, chronic alcoholics...

    Vitamin E Deficiency Increases Risk Of Tuberculosis (TB) Infection

    Most people in modern societies probably do not have much to fear when it comes to TB, as that disease is very rare in the Western world. The reason I am posting this study below is that it demonstrates once again the role of vitamin E in maintaining a healthy immune system. The benefits of...

    More Than One Third Of Men And Almost Half Of Women Are Energy Deficient

    I wanted to note from the start that this is NOT about calories, this is about ENERGY deficiency as a result of bad metabolism. So, while not the same as hypothyroidism, this study shows just how sick the general population is (if we assume that energetic deficiency is behind all diseases). Now...
