Leaky gut syndrome aka intestinal permeability

Leaky Gut and an Immune System Run Amok

The People's Pharmacy recently interviewed a mother of a three your old son who was diagnosed with juvenile idiopathic arthritis. The doctors had put her son on methotrexate, but the side effects were too much especially for a three year old. Instead, she tried treating him for leaky gut syndrome (intestinal permeability) using diet and supplements. After some time, her son, who had needed help getting out ...

Andrew Weil Anti-Inflammatory Diet

There are many points in Dr. Weil's diet with which I disagree – 40-50% in carbohydrates, for example. But for those interested in the anti-inflammatory aspect, I post this link to his diet: http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/ART02012/an ... atory-diet

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 ...

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 ...

Breeding the Nutrition Out of Our Food

Breeding the Nutrition Out of Our Food

By Jo Robinson
Published: May 25, 2013


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 ...
