    Liver Disease Is Caused By Low ATP Driven By Fat (PUFA) Oxidation

    I posted a study several months ago on the ability of inosine to prevent/reverse liver disease, and how liver damage caused by various toxins was due to lower ATP levels in the liver. Inosine, being both a metabolite and precursor of ATP, is able to restore ATP levels and as such to...

    Serotonin/endotoxin/PUFA As Primary Causes Of Depression And Diabetes; Can Be Easily Blocked

    This is one of the unique studies that breaks away from the mainstream dogma that serotonin is the "happy hormone" and increasing it with drugs like SSRI can lead to nothing but goodness. The study not only directly states that past/current SSRI use is a risk for developing diabetes but show how...

    Inosine Increases ATP And Reverses NAFLD (and Likely Other Liver Disease)

    As I mentioned in another recent thread on inosine and serotonin/cortisol, many pathologies are simply signs/symptoms of inefficient ATP synthesis and restoring proper synthesis or replenishing ATP levels through precursors often reverses the pathology. These two studies below show that fatty...

    Alcohol Mostly Benign For The Liver, Causing Injury Requires Endotoxin (LPS)

    Peat wrote in one of his articles that alcohol is getting a bad reputation for causing all sorts of liver disease and even liver cancer, but alcohol by itself is fairly neutral for the liver and that the role of PUFA, iron and endotoxin is being neglected by mainstream medicine. The study below...

    Candida Overgrowth Is A Major Factor In (alcoholic) Liver Damage / Cirrhosis

    Over the last 5 years or so it has become very fashionable among many "naturopaths" to throw the diagnosis "Candida overgrowth" at every symptom of gut dysfunction people present with at the doctor. Peat has spoken about Candida overgrowth and how the fungus typically only becomes an issue in...

    Vitamin D May Be Therapeutic Against Liver Fibrosis And Liver Cancer

    I posted a few threads on vitamin D and how it may help treat endotoxin-related condition, especially ones affecting the liver. Vitamin D Is Endotoxin (LPS / TLR4) Antagonist, May Treat LPS-linked Conditions Endotoxin is perhaps the primary driver of actual liver fibrosis, which (if left...

    Vitamin D Is Endotoxin (LPS / TLR4) Antagonist, May Treat LPS-linked Conditions

    The activation of TLR by various substances like endotoxin, ethanol / alcohol, opioids, SSRI, etc is involved in the pathogenesis of many conditions, especially IBD, colon cancer, periodontal disease, etc. There are very few effective endotoxin antagonists in clinical use, which is unfortunate...
