    Exercise causing inflammation

    Hi everyone! Wondering if some of you may be able to shed some light on a pattern I seem to go through. I’ve struggled with weight my whole life, but particularly after having kids. The only time I was really thin was when I was running 3-5kms a day. After discovering peat a while ago I’ve...

    Carboxymethylcellulose, ubiquitous food/drug additive, is highly inflammatory

    This study is a great reminder that we are surrounded by toxins, and that food/drugs/supplements are one of the major sources of those toxins. I already posted several studies demonstrating that industrial citric acid and vitamin C - additive present in virtually all commercial sort drinks and...

    Blocking PUFA metabolism therapeutic for Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

    The rates of MS have been steadily rising over the last several decades. While mainstream medicine claims the cause is "unknown", it is well known that it has an almost perfect inverse association with sunshine exposure, vitamin D levels, aspirin usage, histamine blockers, etc. This suggest an...

    DHT as anti-inflammatory as cortisol, but without the side effects

    As most of my readers know, glucocorticoids (synthetic or bioidentical) are widely used clinically and there is hardly a chronic conditions for which they are not prescribed even if only for managing brief "acute exacerbations". Despite mainstream medicine doing everything it can to conceal the...

    Heated saturated fats increase inflammation and lead to atherosclerosis?

    My experience so far has been that fried/heated saturated fats (coconut/butter) increase stiffness, pain and inflammation in the body. I believe that interactions is worse if there is some kind of inflammation in the body prior to ingesting the saturated fats (This is problematic to someone with...

    Anti-Peat Maasai kids (high milk consumption) are iron deficient with a high prevalence of chronic inflammation and intestinal damage

    This study compares preschoolers from two tribes (Kamba and Maasai). Kamba children on "iron fortified cereal with low milk diet" are healthier than Maasai kids on "high milk diet" 38 percent of the Maasai preschoolers had anaemia, almost all of which was associated with iron deficiency ...

    Endotoxin (LPS) may directly cause cancerization of normal cells

    A very interesting new study, which confirms the direct causal role LPS has in chronic inflammatory diseases, and especially in cancer. In addition, the study may answer one of the long-standing critiques the medical establishment has always had against the hypothesis that LPS causes cancer (and...

    Uncoupling metabolism/OXPHOS may treat inflammatory conditions

    In several of his articles and interviews, Peat mentioned that one of the reliable signs/symptoms of low metabolism is the presence of low-grade chronic inflammation. Basically, the cell is stuck into a constant (and futile) repair process as it cannot complete it properly after discovering the...

    Serotonin, SSRI drugs may be the cause of IBD, Parkinson's, diabetes, etc.

    A great new study that points the finger straight at serotonin (5-HT). It has been known since the 1940s that not only is 5-HT produced predominantly in the GI tract, but also that elevated serotonin levels are causally linked to a plethora of chronic conditions, especially various inflammatory...

    Should i use cuprofloxacin again?

    Hi guys, how are you? I wanted a tip on Ciprofloxacin. It's been about 1 year since I've had a recurrent inflammation in my throat that presents granulomatous sores. The last protocol that had improved was ciprofloxacin for 14 days, it stayed for about 4 months and now it has returned. My...

    Low testosterone (T) and/or high estrogen/T ratio predict COVID-19 mortality

    So, there we have it - yet another shameless lie exposed. After claiming completely evidence-free since the beginning of 2020 that high androgen levels are detrimental to males when it comes to COVID-19, mainstream medicine now gets to see its lies/incompetence exposed. Those shameless lies...

    The root cause of all inflammation

    This part is so interesting to me because it somehow aligns with the narrative and approach of Dr. Trevor Marshall [Excluding the VIT D part - of course XD]. So Trevor Marshall basically recommends using angiotensin II receptor blocker [OLMASARTAN] to raise and improve the innate immune system...

    PUFA required for periodontal disease, aspirin may help

    It is common knowledge even among mainstream dentists that periodontal disease is caused by bacteria accumulating under the gums, which over time leads to chronic inflammation and thus destruction of both gum tissue and the alveolar/jaw bone underneath the gums. Another "new" discover is that...

    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...

    Both "long" COVID-19 and CFS are likely caused by hypometabolism

    A good study that examines the remarkable parallels between the so-called "long" COVID-19 (i.e. chronic display of symptoms associated with COVID-19) and the (in)famous chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). Namely, increases inflammation, excessive glycolysis, suppressed mitochondrial function and...

    Manufactured citric acid is a powerful inflammatory/allergy agent

    I great study, which goes hand-in-hand with another one I recently posted about in regards to silica (ubiquitous in commercially sold food products/drinks). Namely, just as that other study found silica to be a potent inducer of the endotoxin/LPS receptor TLR4 even in minute amounts, this study...

    Aspirin reduces symptom severity, COVID-19 mortality by half

    Another great result for aspirin, which I suspect will not see much mainstream media publicity and will probably get censored the moment it hits my Twitter feed:-) Be that as it may, at this point the evidence for available successful/effective treatments for COVID-19 becomes too big to ignore...

    Theanine Ameliorates Neuroinflammation And Protects Against Endotoxin-Induced Inflammation and Acute Liver Injury

    https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/29969892/ Theanine, a unique bioactive constituent from tea ( Camellia sinensis) leaves, is widely used as a functional ingredient and dietary supplement. To evaluate the anti-inflammatory and hepatoprotective effects of theanine and its molecular mechanism, the...

    Dietary type 2 resistant starch improves systemic inflammation and intestinal permeability?

    Abstract Type 2 resistant starch (RS2) is a fermentable dietary fiber conferring health benefits. We investigated the effects of RS2 on host, gut microbiota, and metabolites in aged mice on high-fat diet. In eighteen-month old mice randomly assigned to control, high-fat (HF), or high-fat+20% RS2...

    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...
