    I have never seen Dr. Peat recommend a source of pregnenolone. However, I do see people in other groups recommending this one:

    http://www.beyond-a-century.com/Pregnen ... p_600.html

    Birdie, welcome to the board! It's great to see you here! :wave:

    I have moved your two posts over to here. I hope that is OK? I figured since we are pulling together a list here, that this would be the most sensible place to put your posts. If you have anymore suggestions for the supplement list please chime in anytime. I see a couple things that you recommended that can be added to the list of supplements. Many thanks for making those suggestions. Here are the ones that I see that need to be added suggested by Birdie.

    -Epsom Salts (Magnesium sulfate)
    -Baking soda
    -Brown paper Bags
    -Aspirin,
    -Progesterone

    You want aged cascara there... NOW brand works for some people and is cheap. Others people buy an expensive one they say is aged better, more... I think Ray says the aged type is darker.

    Re: Notes Toward a Handle like a "Basic Peat Diet" (BPD)

    As long as we are talking bathing in non-fluoridated water, otherwise can only be detrimental to health. Sadly, I can not take baths as the Australian government are a bunch of ****s.
     
  19. Birdie

    Birdie Member

    Re: Notes Toward a Handle like a "Basic Peat Diet" (BPD)

    Is the water fluoridated throughout Australia? Just certain areas/cities? I live in a place with it's own wells. Still, I'm sure it's got some awful stuff in it but no fluoride. It's been years since I looked up the info on our water. When I lived in Victoria, BC, I was told their water has no fluoride but is chlorinated. I avoided it. Also, I don't like to swim in it and that might be similar to soaking in fluoridated water as far as being harmful.

    But Peat has never to my knowledge advised avoiding soaking baths if your water is fluoridated, as is most people's water. Maybe I missed it though as it sounds like something important to consider.

    So, I wonder if I missed something or did Ray miss something. He warns about drinking fluoridated water so, fluoride's danger is not something he ignores. Maybe somebody has more info. Probably, we shouldn't include the baths until we learn more. ??
     
  20. Jake

    Jake Member

    Birdie:

    Good questions, I have been wondering the same thing.

    Have you run across anywhere Peat has commented on chlorine? I have not done much digging on this topic but am curious. My gut feeling is there is a lot of undesirable stuff in any tap water, so not real sure on the epsom salt baths.

    As a side note, it's funny, sometimes I feel the more learn, the more paranoid I get. I wonder on some topics if I would be healthier in the long run not knowing versus worrying about it.
     
  21. Birdie

    Birdie Member

    Another thought is that a lot of things when applied to the skin are absorbed differently than by mouth. Filtered in a way. Ray puts his vit A and D on the skin. He says it's a safer way to dose them because of additives if I remember right.

    And, the fact that he advises using baking soda and epsom salts through the skin in the bath indicates to me that he isn't worried about the water in the bath. Also, I think most cities in the US are fluoridated, and, still he recommends the bath. When he thinks something (meat for example) is better in Mexico, he says he eats more meat there. But he hasn't said he takes more soaks there because of our fluoride. But, is his water in Mexico fluoridated too. Does he take the baths himself anyway?
     
  22. nwo2012

    nwo2012 Member

    Re: Notes Toward a Handle like a "Basic Peat Diet" (BPD)

    Yes, most of Australia is fluoridated. In fact it has the highest % of any country, why when I see people proudly singing Australia Fare it makes me want to vomit.
    I did ask Peat about the fluoride on the skin and he replied
    My concerns are that some of the fluoride will go systemic. Fluoride baths used to be a treatment for hyperthyroidism.
    For me personally, this is too great a risk. It is the fluoride of Australia that caused my hypothyroidism and Im still detoxing from it. This was confirmed by symptoms and bloodwork.
     
  23. nwo2012

    nwo2012 Member

    I asked RP again about this and my concerns. H replied:

     
  24. Birdie

    Birdie Member

    Good to see Ray's response. I've noticed that when he makes recommendations and then someone questions them, he will give that sort of answer. Some other thing, the magnesium in the bath, the progesterone in the milk, that covers it.

    It'd be better not to have fluoridated water but most of us do. Peat still recommends the bath. But he doesn't recommend drinking it. We'd get a lot more fluoride from drinking the water than we would in the bath, especially with the Mg acting to reduce absorption of fluoride through the skin. Anyway, I'm satisfied on the epsom salt/baking powder baths. (For now!)
     
  25. nwo2012

    nwo2012 Member

    So are you meaning that you think maybe he just makes up things to cover what he said? Just wondering what's on your mind, not insinuating anything. ;) Maybe he does recommend the things in the first place because he already knows of the protective elements so when questioned already has the answer?
    Anyways I guess I agree but I will have to mull it over for a while before considering a bath. I do know the hotter the water, the more fluoride you would absorb. Also I would think chlorine would exacerbate the issue (another haline) so using a bath chlorine removing ball (I have one of these) before getting into the bath would be useful. Maybe even a small amount of iodine into the water?

    Selenium, Egg shell powder,

    Thank you for the great list!
    You could add super selenium complex. Ray Peat always recommended eating shrimp for selenium but since most of them (and shellfish) come from aqua culture they don't have selenium anymore. So now he recommends supplements.

    Also recommended: egg shell powder as best source of calcium.

    I am not sure about the training masks. They sounded great at first but after reading how they are supposed to work I think they train you to inhale deeper after wearing them. If you inhale deeper you will take in more oxygen. The opposite of the desired result. Has anyone asked RP what he thinks about this?
     
  27. charlie

    charlie Administrator

    Peatarian, welcome to the forum.

    Thats a really great point you have made about the masks. Hoping we can get some more feedback on them.

    What form of selenium supplement?
     
  29. peatarian

    peatarian Member

    Thanks a lot for the welcome and for the quick answer! Ray Peat never mentioned a special form of selenium to me. I think I checked the Super Selenium Complex from Life Extension with him. I suppose he would have mentioned if there was a better form. But I cannot say anything about the quality. If there are additives (which I am rather sure of) and which ones.
     
  30. charlie

    charlie Administrator

    I did notice it has vitamin E included with it. Not sure what kind of vitamin E though.
     
  31. peatarian

    peatarian Member

    Yes, I noticed the vitamin E (as D-Alpha tocopherol, it seems to be hard to find a product without it) but the amount is practically nothing so it will not interfere with the suggested 400.000 I.U. of E complex per day.

    Vitamin E (as D-alpha tocopheryl)
    30 IU
    Selenium (as Se-Methyl L-Selenocysteine, SelenoPure™ L-selenomethionine1, sodium selenate, selenodiglutathione)
    200 mcg
    Each capsule provides:

    Selenium (L-selenomethionine1)
    50 mcg
    Selenium (sodium selenate)
    50 mcg
    Selenium (selenodiglutathione)
    25 mcg
    Selenium (Se-Methyl L-Selenocysteine)
    75 mcg
    Other ingredients: rice flour, gelatin, vegetable stearate, dicalcium phosphate, microcrystalline cellulose.

    One more suggestion since you listed everything else I could think of for the Ray-Peat-Survival-Kit: activated charcoal might belong with the other stuff.

    RP says carott salat has the same effect but from time to time carotts just aren't strong enough. He sent me some rat studies which show that rats eating charcoal (I think every few days) lived 30% longer than those who didn't. Of course the carbo medicinalis (the official name) works as the carott fibers would but are more potent. They soak up the endotoxins in your stomach and intestines. I use charcoal once a week or if needed, two big spoons in water. It's a bit nasty to handle and it turns your tongue black but whenever my teeth or one of them hurts -- It helps. Probably has to do with the elevated serontonin because of the endotoxins. RP mentions it in the articles about MS and other so called autoimmune diseases.
    You just have to be sure not to use it close to supplements or food. At least one hour or better one and a half between charcoal and anything beneficial.
     
  33. charlie

    charlie Administrator

    Is there a certain brand you would recommend for charcoal?
     
  34. peatarian

    peatarian Member

    Don't buy the pressed pills, they are nearly useless. I think it should be at least two big spoons of charcoal but I have used as many as 10 after a stomach infection.

    Actually I would recommend the one you can afford. Don't laugh I mean it!
    You wouldn't believe it's basically burned things you buy. I used to pay 56 Euro for 250g.
    I now found a pharmacy in Switzerland that charges 22 Euro for 1 kg.
    There is no qualitative difference between the two. They don't have brand names, just the names of the pharmacies on them.

    Basically I'd say chose the one that's finer and easier to stir up dust (you'll see what I mean).
    They all have to me medically pure so you don't have to worry about that.
    Some are burned plants instead of animals (I wonder if this has to do with religion or vegetarians?). I have tried many, the result was always the same.

    After two years I recommend using it -- and using it right before bedtime because this way it's most unlikely it will interfere with any nutrition. (And don't wear anything white when you mix it. I usually fill it in a glass bottle and shake it until it's all liquid and no powder.)

    How much baking soda do you use in the baths and add to drinks? Do you ever notice any digestive problems from the baking soda? What benefits do feel from using it? Thanks!
     
  38. Birdie

    Birdie Member

    I add a cup or two of baking soda to my bath along with the same amount of epsom salts. Sometimes I add aspirin powder too. (Thanks, Peatarian for that one!)

    I don't eat a lot of it. Just a little in my oj.

    I experience sounder sleep but the other beneficial effects are not something I notice from day to day.
     
  39. Kemby

    Kemby Member

    How often do you need to have baths like this to absorb an optimal amount of Magnesium and sodium?

    Just looking for a ballpark. Im lucky enough that where I live the water has no added flouride.
     
  40. Birdie

    Birdie Member

    I've heard 4 a week. I get 4 or 5 a week. Some were saying to use a pound of each but I use less. The baths are for magnesium and CO2. I add the aspirin as peatarian said it might help my fibromyalgia. These baths also help with sleep if taken near bedtime.
     
  41. Birdie

    Birdie Member

    Martin,
    Yes, we are without fluoride too. Community well system.. But there may be chlorine in it. Something is in it for purification but I don't remember what.
     
  42. peatarian

    peatarian Member

    Have you noticed any difference? Do you want to write me a message with your symptoms? I have come across many people during the last 5 years who had fibromyalgia with very different symptoms. All but three (who still struggle) have tried different Ray Peat ideas and are completely symptom free now.
     
  43. Birdie

    Birdie Member

    That's very encouraging, peatarian. I think we need a fibro thread. It could help a lot of people. Right now I'm just recovering from a surgery so I'm not in my typical shape. How do you know of all these FMS people who are symptom free? Thanks!
     
  44. peatarian

    peatarian Member

    Well, I guess giving my history with doctors and diseases -- people start telling me their medical problems after saying hello. That's okay for me because many can't read Peat due to their lack of English. I always love to see how his work helps people get better no matter how big the problem.

  58. kiran

    kiran Member

    You have to take it with gelatin or an alternate source of tyrosine/phenylalanine because BCAAs will block the uptake of both tryptophan (Serotonin) and tyrosine/phenyalanine (Dopamine).

    This is definitely a cool idea.

    Sugar in the list is left to be updated. I've been using organic Florida Crystals, which has a slight brown tint from leftover molasses. I was worried a bit because molasses is high in iron but from what I can figure out there is just a trace amount of either molasses or iron in it.

    I would use the cheapest commercial sugar if I knew it was OK. Has anyone come to a conclusion about a good sugar to use in the US?

    Activated Charcoal- the first product on the list is sourced from this place. They don't even sell the 10 oz jar sold by Amazon but have a 40 oz jar for $27.56 +s&h, a much better deal. It's also about 20% cheaper than the second product on the list at Amazon.

    No sense in spending more than you need to.

    FWIW, Crunchy Betty has a page about whitening teeth with the stuff.

    Danged but if I didn't run across this, jaa, from Peatarian. I was wondering the same thing.

    From page 8 of this thread.
     
  76. some magnesium supps u may be able to add to the list....

    "Use natural sources of magnesium, such as pure, organic fruit juice, or
    an epsom salts bath (1/2 cup in a tub, soak for 20 minutes), BioNativus Liquid minerals
    or Magnesium Taurate are good sources of magnesium" -lita lee
     
  77. Birdie

    Birdie Member

    Yes, Ray recommends natural sources in juice and also using epsom salt baths. He says to use a pound in the tub. I thought the epsom salt baths were listed in the supps.

    I've heard Ray say that he uses Magnesium oil on the skin. He doesn't much trust supplements since they can have added toxic ingredients.
     
  78. Birdie

    Birdie Member

    Is there an error in the Coconut Oil listing? I didn't see the word, "refined", and that is what Ray always recommends.

    The other thing I noticed is that Ray's name is attached to the Progest-E. He says he's had no connection with it for many years. He did formulate it in the beginning, so that may be what's intended in the list.

    It might be more clear to a newbie if it were called just Progest-E as it is on the label. Maybe you could mention that Ray formulated it underneath or something?

    Interesting that Ray uses topical Mg oil, Birdie, I'd never heard that. I'm a huge fan of the stuff.

    FWIW, the ancient minerals source of Mg oil also sells bath salts of Mg oil (essentially Mg Chloride). They say there is a lot more Mg in the water than with epsom salts, but I figured it is a good bit more expensive, too. I've never been a bath guy so it doesn't matter to me, 20 sprays of the oil after a shower does it for me. (And I am some kind of glad that it does!! Very important mineral for everyone and every way of eating).

    That does sound great, BingDing. I've got to get some of that oil when I get a bit more energy. Thanks.

    I'm a little confused on the gelatin front. I'm pretty sure I've read Dr. Peat writing against consuming hydrolyzed protein, but the consensus here seems to be that he recommends hydrolyzed collagen over regular (non-hydrolyzed) gelatin. Can someone here explain or point to me where Dr. Peat has explained why hydrolyzed protein, in general, is bad but when it comes to gelatin (also, protein) only the hydrolyzed is recommended? Thanks.

    Quick note. Mandarina will be updating the supplement list in a couple days she said. So if you see any changes that need to be made to it please chime in.

    I don't know what the answer is, Dean. Great Lakes has a page here about msg in collagen hydrolysate. I need to learn the difference between free glutamic acid and msg before I can make any headway.

    I use the kosher beef gelatin in orange can. Have seen where Ray says he uses the pork GL rather than the beef. Have not seen him recommend hydrosolate.

    I noticed we have the 2 lb box of Epsom salts recommended at amazon for about $8. Did I misread that? The 2 lb box, same brand is 88 cents at WalMart. Perhaps the Amazon is a multiple pak?? It looks like a single.

    Idont have time to check anything else just now. Thanks everybody. This list is a good idea.

    Good point about the links to Amazon, Birdie. I found Morton's canning and pickling salt locally for a lot less than Amazon. Same with the activated charcoal online, though that took a lot more effort to find.

    Maybe the links should be to just a product page, or include a note telling people to price shop a bit before they buy. My :2cents, and thanks to Mandarina for the effort, definitely a worthy list.

    Are there any more Vitamin A supplements we can add to the list? The one listed is not available.

    Has anyone experiences with http://farmaciadelnino.com/? if it is a serious shop you should definetly update the supp list. I doubt people want to pay the double price for cynoplus and co.

    Yeah most sources of interplexus A that I found runs out of stock quite often. I did manage on two occasions, so it does work sometimes.

    Yes! I received my shipment of Cynoplus and Cynomel about a week ago. They were a little slow on shipping but no other problems - and yes they are just about half the price of the mexican pharmacy.

    Birdie, I think "expeller pressed" is refined.

    Progest-E information has been updated.

    I have ordered from them with success, and plan to again. The various different sites will have different products and pricing, so it's good to compare, but they had what I wanted - for a decent price - while mymexicandrugstore and magicpharma did not.

    Any thoughts on Jarrow Formulas' Expeller Pressed Coconut Oil?
