    Artichokes as a carrot salad/bamboo shoots/mushrooms substitute?

    This is from @Rinse & rePeat: What do you think? Obviously, he didn’t openly claim they can be a substitute, but it would be great if they had similar effects on the intestines. Him writing he doesn’t know of any harm from them is worth noting. Source: Peat's Carrot Salad Strips Endotoxin -...

    Artichoke extract, yellow stool

    Hi guys! I'm asking for my mother but why would Artichoke extract make the stool colour go from brown to yellow? I thought it was suppose to help bile flow. And yellow stool would indicate lack of bile no? So what is this extract doing if not improving that? Should she continue? She...

    Can anyone tell me if lipopolysaccharide (LPS) is simply a biofilm? If we destroy the biofilm, does that take care of the LPS toxin?

    Vitamin E may prevent, treat rheumatoid arthritis (RA) by restoring the gut barrier

    This is one of those studies where the most important finding is not directly stated, but implied. Namely, if healing the gut barrier, as the study says, may prevent/treat RA then the condition is most likely tied to the microbiome in our GI tract. More specifically, to the byproducts of the...

    Finasteride causes gut inflammation, high serotonin, low dopamine; allopregnanolone may treat

    A great new study, which goes a long way towards explaining the dreaded post-finasteride syndrome (PFS). Currently, medicine does not recognize PFS as a formal disease and in fact attempts to gaslight the patients with PFS into believing they are simply mentally ill and in need of SSRI drugs...

    Take the Parasite Pill!

    Its time for some schizo posting. @JamesGatz you can gladly join. I just stumbled upon this document called "Parasite Pill 2.0" which was mostly likely created on 4chan or somewhere in those circles. I think that RP community is very well knowledgable about bacteria, parasites and gut health...

    LDN and Sibo

    Years ago I had a horrible reaction to LDN related to my SIBO. I now know I have a sulfur sensitivity and I was curious what Low Dose Naltrexone is composed of. It doesn't look like a sulfur compound but can it somehow affect the bacteria that are sulfur producing? thanks.

    Low E.coli?

    Can someone shed light on this? I recently got a hair analysis and it detected an imbalance with E.coli. I assumed this meant E.coli was high since it's very common to pick up E.coli through food poisoning or other means. When I inquired if this meant low or high levels, they told me it's low...

    Gut bacteria overgrowth drives (cocaine) addiction; glycine can reverse it

    Yet another study highlighting the importance of the microbiome for our health, and suggesting again that there may be no such thing as truly beneficial bacteria. Any bacteria capable of colonizing our GI tract seems to be capable of causing pathology if it is allowed to proliferate without...

    Three Day Niacin Flush

    Lately, whenever I take regular niacin (not niacinamide) I've begun exhibiting some very unusual symptoms. In addition to the immediate flush, I find that I'll also experience a less intense (about 50% the strength) flush periodically for the next few days at random intervals. Additionally, I...

    COVID-19 is a serotonin-dependent disease

    As the COVID-19 pandemic spread all over the world in early 2020, some of the earliest studies identified serotonin (5-HT) as a culprit in the severity of the disease and proposed using 5-HT antagonists such as cyproheptadine as treatment. Other studies found by accident that the anti-acid drug...

However, when I started drinking coffee (usually on an empty stomach) while taking it, the SSRI lost...
