    Best way to approach gut issues

    Hello all, My journey peating has been wonderful so far. Diet, thyroid, etc. have all been addressed and I feel better than I have for years. I'm still seeing near daily improvements primarily from supplementing thyroid. The next thing I want to tackle is my gut. I pretty much don't tolerate...

    Estrogen and inflammation

    If the tissue damage is the cause of the appearance of estrogen in that tissue in order to heal it - what causes that tissue to become so easily damageable? Like in my case for example. I have Crohn's and my intestine is easily damaged with supplements and even cascara sagrada for example. It...

    Asprin/Coconut Oil Enema Potential Solution For Fungus

    So I haven't seen any threads on here that address this, but have heard both coconut oil and aspirin could work wonders on fungus. The only problem being they are mostly absorbed before they hit the colon. 1. Would there be any draw backs to doing an aspirin and/or coconut oil enema? 2. If no...

    A gut repair equation - Amino acids > polyphenols > fiber

    Credit to Joel Greene. His brief Q&A on the Ben Greenfield podcast found here: Crohn's Disease & Carnivore, Raw Beans, Lectin Myths, & More. The basic explanation I gathered was: Protein (namely glutamine and glycine) and niacin are responsible for repairing the upper/small intestine. This...

    The Gut-Hair Loss Connection: Fix The Gut To Stop Hair Loss

    Hi all, The gut is truly involved with just about everything in the body, however, few actually know that their gut health is contributing to their hair health. So many people might experience gut issues, but seldom connect it to their hair loss. I have written an article to shed some light on...

    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...

    Cardamom Could Be Great For The Gut

    From this study: Dose effects of the food spice cardamom on aspects of hamster gut physiology. - PubMed - NCBI The administration of cardamom extract (0.5 and 1.5 g/100 g diet) effectively (p < 0.05) shortened hamster gastrointestinal transit time by approximately 58%, increased fecal moisture...

    Serotonin (due To Bacteria) Is The Master Regulator Of Metabolism, Insulin Sensitivity, And Weig

    Over the last year I posted a number of studies demonstrating strong link between serotonin and chronic conditions such as obesity, insulin resistance, and even diabetes. Augmented capacity for peripheral serotonin release in human obesity...

    All Gut Bacteria Dangerous, Its Endotoxin Drives Liver Cancer; Antibiotics Cure

    As Peat has written many times, there is truly no such thing as “beneficial” gut bacteria as long as they are capable of producing endotoxin (LPS). And since most bacterial species known to colonize the gut can produce LPS when exposed to undigested food or mechanical stimulation (stretching or...

    Sterilizing The Gut Restores Insulin Sensitivity By Reducing Fatty Acid Oxidation

    I am posting this study just as an example of how important the role of endotoxin is in insulin resistance and diabetes. Similarly to the human study with aspirin, sterilizing the gut with antibiotics did not reduce the weight in the obese subjects (in this case mice). So, obesity may be a less...

    Pancreatic Cancer Driven By Bacteria/endotoxin; Antibiotics Can Prevent/treat

    I just posted a seminal study showing that possibly ALL autoimmune conditions may be caused by a chronic low-grade infection. This infection stems from a gut bacteria, which has translocated from the gut to the liver/lymphs due to compromised gut barrier and lingers there chronically thus...

    Gut Bacteria May Cause ALL Autoimmune Conditions; Antibiotics Can Cure

    Ray has spoken/written at length about the importance of gut bacteria and the endotoxin they produce in virtually all chronic conditions. I posted a number of recent studies confirming the role of endotoxin (and iron) in a number of very serious conditions for which modern medicine claims there...

    Serotonin Causes Obesity And Diabetes In Humans

    This study is presented as groundbreaking and unexpected but in fact big pharma has been quietly working on anti-serotonin therapy for obesity/diabetes for more than a decade. I think the importance of this study is the admission that serotonin causes obesity/diabetes in humans, as one of the...

    Bacterial Lipids (endotoxin), Not Cholesterol, May Be A Cause Of CVD

    The role of endotoxin (and TLR) in cardiovascular disease (CVD) is probably well-known by most people on this forum. Peat rarely writes on a topic without mentioning either endotoxin or keeping the gut clean as one of the main paths to good health. The role of cholesterol is finally getting to...

    Fungi / Bacteria, Not Autoimmunity, Cause IBD (Chron's, UC) And IBS

    I posted a study recently that chronic alcohol consumption increases Candida overgrowth in the gut while simultaneously decreasing the number of benign bacteria. Candida Overgrowth Is A Major Factor In (alcoholic) Liver Damage / Cirrhosis Actually, the term "benign bacteria" is wrong as there...

    C. Difficile Gut Infection Or Even IBD May Be Due To Low Vitamin D Or PPI Drugs

    As the study says, the direct cause is high intestinal levels of calcium but as the study also says these are usually due to poor calcium absorption. And unless a person has IBD (which is rare) the low vitamin D status or PPI drug (GERD) use stand out as the most likely causes, even more so...

    Serotonin Production In The Gut Is Fully Controlled By Microbiome

    A year and a half ago I posted about a study which found that serotonin production in the gut depends on the bacteria living in the colon. Serotonin Production (gut) Depends On Bacteria At the time, the study was considered controversial as the role of microbiome in serotonin production was...

    Changes In Thiamine Levels May Be The First Sign Of Type I Diabetes

    The study is focusing on the fashionable topic of "microbiome analysis", which is most likely a fad that won't lead to any breakthrough cures. However, the important finding of the study is that changes of vitamin B1 (thiamine) levels are involved in the pathogenesis of diabetes. Sudden drop in...
