Sunlight, Bitter Melon, Nitric Oxide Connection

I began by reading Dan Buettner's book, The Blue Zones, one of which is Okinawa, a couple years ago. Then came my reading of The Okinawa Program by Bradley J. Willcox, M.D., D. Craig Willcox, PhD, and Makoto Suzuki, M.D. I learned that the prevalence of MS in Okinawa is miniscule. This was due to diet, I thought: http://www.truehealth.org/okinawadiet.html

The diet in that country commonly includes go-ya (a.k.a. bitter ...

Gut flora and random question

I had a very interesting meeting with my Dr. last week. After a lot of discussions on different treatments. He told me that more focus would be placed on gut flora as being a factor in MS. That is why (in his opinion) certain diets (Swank, Paleo) and other diets work because they re balances and improve the gut flora. This is not a naturopathic Dr; but, a Dr. at an MS clinic/research hospital. Makes ...

Trojans

Everyone believes in Trojan viruses & Trojan governments, due to the publicity they garner.
The viruses & governments seem harmless, so you yourself let them in.

But most people would be skeptical re: the below, due to lack of publicity. Nobody believes that the below may actually cause lesions, unless they experience it, and unless they read testimonials in books i've mentioned elsewhere.

(1) Trojan tech stuff emitting High EMFs, whether via Lumens, or GHz ...

I have been using Wish Bone Ranch. It has non-hydrogenated soybean oil. All the others I could find had hydrogenated oil, even the ranch mix your own.packet. Also, would like the name of a good tasting, not too expensive, REAL virgin or extra virgin olive oil.

Fasting

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone has experience with some kind of fasting, like alternate day fasting, 5:2 fasting, or even longer fasts. For instance, how many hours at a time did you refrain from eating? And of course, did you notice any effects (positive or negative) on your MS?

In principle it should have a beneficial influence on your health, but whether this is so for pwMS I do not know... But it has ...

We like the idea that food can be the answer to our ills, that if we eat nutritious foods we won’t need medicine or supplements. We have valued this notion for a long, long time. The Greek physician Hippocrates proclaimed nearly 2,500 years ago: “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be ...

Wahls diet for non-meat eaters?

Does anyone know if Dr. Wahl's diet can be effectively adapted for those if us who are vegetarian? We eat fish, but no other meat. Wondered if there is a way around the grass-fed meat, organ meat, and bone broth? Also wondered if any beans or legumes can be used. They are a major source of protein for us. :-/

Fat/gluten connection

First of all, let me admit that I watch entirely too much TV.

Next, I was watching "America's Test Kitchen" yesterday when store-bought tortillas were reviewed. The evaluation was also on their website:

"The higher the percentage of fat, the more we liked the tortilla. First, fat adds flavor (our winner, at 9 percent, was called “slightly rich” and “buttery”). Second, a higher percentage of fat helps produce a more tender yet flaky tortilla by ...

Ketogenics Diet

I am currently doing the MCT Keto diet. It has only been about 2 months, but 3 weeks being serious about it. I keep my carbs below 50g a day, which is about a 1/4 cup dry rice. Coconut Oil and Butter and Stress B Complex all for MCT. I received an alert from Google talking about Dr. Gary Levin. Has anyone bought into his treatment program? I guess the gist is eating healthy and ...
