    Endotoxin (LPS) causes rheumatoid arthritis...and COVID-19

    A great new study, which is perhaps the first to directly point the finger at endotoxin as perhaps the main cause of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). RA is an "autoimmune" condition and not only shares symptoms with other similar conditions such as Lupus, psoriasis, MS, etc, but now all of them are...

    Glycine Ameliorates NAFLD By Modulating FAO, Glutathione Synthesis, And The Gut Microbiome

    Altered the title to make it fit. Glycine-based treatment ameliorates NAFLD by modulating fatty acid oxidation, glutathione synthesis, and the gut microbiome Full text ABSTRACT Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) including nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) has reached epidemic...

    Probiotic Enemas

    Has anyone here ever tried them? A cursory search seems to suggest great danger: Probiotic enema? Anyone tried it? : Microbiome After probiotic enema, I can't eat food without feeling very sick. Every antibiotic I've tried is causing major side effects. What to do? : AskDocs (The second link...

    Lower Abdominal Bloating From The Pill - Looking For Advice

    I'm asking this question with my wife's interests in mind. At the end of 2012, about 18 months into us dating, she went on the pill. Within a few months she had developed a hard bloat in her lower abdomen, whereas prior to this she had always had a flat abdomen and small waist. The visual...

    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...

    Food Emulsifiers And Endotoxin (LPS) Cause Brain Bleeding

    The study below is both ground-breaking and scary. Ground-breaking because it demonstrates yet another mysterious and potentially lethal disease - cavernous angioma (CA) - has a very simple explanation - endotoxin / LPS. Scary, because it refers to evidence that emulsifiers widely approved for...

    Gut Protocol For Insulin Resistance, Metabolism, And Energy

    I wanted to share this amazing gut protocol that I have been on for the last few months (results below) I am in a unique position as a type 1 diabetic in that my pancreas produces little to no insulin on its own. This gives me an insight into what supplements and herbs do to insulin needs in...

    CamphoSal - Liquid Camphoric Acid + Salol

    As many readers know, Peat has written extensively on the benefits of antibiotics and on keeping the GI tract as free of bacteria as possible. Bacterial overgrowth in the colon alone is already a problem due to the production of endotoxin, but in hypothyroid people this bacterial overgrowth can...

    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...

    Niacinamide May Improve Symptoms Of ALS

    Just over a week ago I posted a thread on ALS being linked to increased fatty acid oxidation (FAO) and as such a decreased glucose availability/oxidation. ALS Tied To Increased Fat Oxidation (FAO), Increasing Glucose May Treat It Now, the study below further corroborates this FAO-disease...

    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...

    A Common Probiotic Strain (lactobacillus) May Cause Lupus

    In one of his articles, Ray briefly mentioned the possible role of lactobacillus strains in the pathology of Lupus. Food-junk and some mystery ailments: Fatigue, Alzheimer's, Colitis, Immunodeficiency. Carrageenan "...The variations in the post-influenza syndromes are very likely influenced by...

    Soluble Fiber Causes Liver Cancer, Insoluble And Antibiotics Prevent/stop It

    Perhaps one of the most controversial topics in Peat-land is fiber. Over the years he has consistently recommended insoluble fiber, such as found in carrots/mushrooms/bamboo, while recommending explicitly against soluble fiber such as pectin and other fermentable starches. I think in one of his...

    The Benefits Of Fasting Are Due To Lowering Endotoxin (LPS), Not Less Calories

    As many of you know, the argument for/against fasting has been raging on the forum for several years at this point. While Ray has spoken several times favorably about potentially skipping a meal or two, he has repeatedly said that chronic fasting is not something he recommends due to its...

    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...

    Dietary Nitrates Can Cause Mania After Just Two Weeks Of Consumption

    As many forum users already know dietary nitrates are an effective precursor to nitric oxide (NO). NO has been reliably linked to mania in humans, and mania is a known side effect of drugslike Viagra or nitroglycerin, but so far the official claim is that dietary nitrate intake does not cause...

    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...

    Environment (diet), Not Genetics, Mainly Shapes Gut Bacteria Composition

    As many forum users know, studying the microbiome is the current hot topic in biochemistry and imbalances in the microbiome are used to explain everything from depression, to CVD, to cancer. A major argument advanced in the microbiome analysis field is that genes are the main driver of the...

    The Brain Damage In Cases Of TBI May Be Partially Driven By Gut Bacteria

    Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is one of the most common injuries sustained by soldiers on the battleield, as well as by various athletes (NFL, NHL, major league soccer, etc). Repeated TBI events or even a single TBI of sufficient severity can trigger what is commonly known as chronic traumatic...
