    Blocking the endotoxin receptor (TLR4) may prevent / treat hearing loss

    I did a post a few months ago on the connection between tinnitus and serotonin - i.e. using anti-serotonin drugs may treat tinnitus. Since tinnitus is almost always a precursor state to hearing loss (and eventually deafness), the two conditions obviously go hand-in-hand and are likely caused by...

    Endotoxin (LPS) may be the cause of fatal lung damage in COVID-19

    Yet another study, which demonstrates that there is virtually no disease (acute of chronic, infections or not) where the infamous LPS does not play a causative role. As it turns out, the often fatal inflammatory reaction (cytokine storm) that usually kills patients with COVID-19 in ICU, is...

    Silica, present in most supplements/food, activates the endotoxin receptor (TLR4)

    Many of my readers know about the health risks of silica - a substance doctors and pundits call completely "benign, present in virtually all commercially sold dietary supplements and also in most commercially sold food (even organic ones!). The most commonly used form commercially is silicon...

    L. plantarum protects testicles & lowers inflammation/endotoxin

    It is well known that phtalates used in plastics are endocrine disruptors and damage testicular tissue. This study is showing that Lactobacillus plantarum (LP) alleviates testicular damage, increases testosterone back to normal levels, lowers inflammatory mediators like TNF-a, IL-1b and IL-6 and...

    B. Coagulans decreases endotoxin , liver fibrosis and serotonin

    B. Coagulans , a spore forming bacteria, few people proably have heard of . In my opinion it's one of the best probiotics and bacteria strains available. It decreases endotoxin ,liver fibrosis inflammation, boosts a very healthy bacterium called F. Prausnitzii, which in turn lowers serotonin...

    Endotoxin (LPS) as a cause of systemic inflammation seen in obesity

    Yet another study implicating the great villain of systemic health - endotoxin / LPS. It is well-known that most people with obesity have high levels of inflammatory biomarkers both in their tissues and bloodstream. The study below demonstrates that the inflammation seen in adipose tissue of...

    Endotoxin behind the mortality of Black Death and 1918 Flu pandemics

    As many of my readers know, many/most people dying from COVID-19 develop either sepsis and/or respiratory failure. Endotoxin (LPS) is now a known cause behind both of these conditions, as a virus by itself has no known mechanism of causing a cytokine storm. As much as I revile the term...

    Coconut oil for lowering blood sugar, insulin requirements, inflammation and appetite

    This case report showed that coconut oil supplementation reduced this man's insulin requirements (he's a type 2 diabetic by was given insulin as well) dramatically. And when we did use insulin at his normal dose, he often experienced hypoglycemia. The shows that coconut either improves glucose...

    Help Can't Eat Anything Debilitating Excess Saliva

    Long story short whenever I eat pretty much anything my body starts to produce excess saliva often to the point where it causes me to vomit. This has developed over the past 3 months and slowly got worse but yesterday it really was the worst ever. I ate a pizza and about 40 minutes later I threw...

    Asthma Can Be Caused By Endotoxin (LPS). From Air Filters

    Not a clickbait title but the actual (and fascinating) findings of several studies. I think the biggest find here is that endotoxin (LPS) can directly cause asthma and exacerbate already existing asthma. To my knowledge, while mainstream medicine does admit that asthma is an inflammatory...

    Activation Of The Endotoxin Receptor (TLR4) May Cause Hearing Loss

    There is currently an epidemic of tinnitus (ear ringing) and hearing loss in virtually all developed countries. Experts are scratching heads and are failing to come up with a reason/explanation for this epidemic. As it often happens, the cause is often hidden in plain sight and if one follows...

    Parkinson Disease (PD) May Begin In The Gut

    The article below is one of at least 20 I have seen in just 2020 alone that are starting to draw attention to the metabolic/inflammatory origins of yet another neurological disease of "mysterious" origin - namely, Parkinson Disease (PD). What makes this article both interesting and infuriating...

    Simply Inhaling Endotoxin (LPS) May Cause Parkinson Disease (PD)

    The role of endotoxin (LPS) in neurodegenerative diseases is becoming more and more recognized, despite claims by mainstream medicine that LPS only poses danger to people with severely compromised livers. However, even scientists that are aware of the causative role of LPS in those diseases...
