Re: Diet

Broccoli and broccoli sprouts, especially broccoli sprouts, are excellent sources of sulforaphane, more so than most other vegetables. Broccoli sprouts have up to 5 times as much sulforaphane than regular broccoli. Sulforaphane is readily available in supplement form and is very inexpensive (of cour...

Re: Scraping the barrel for magnetite using the 'Desatascador'

Congratulations! Your story is truly amazing!! Good luck with your rehab. Please keep us posted as to your progress. To me, your theories makes a lot of sense. The problem of magnetite has long been known and dates back to the ancient Greeks. Its association with MS has obviously not been proven (ye...

Re: Homegrown sprouted/microgreen vegetables - Higher nutrition-NO PESTICIDES!

Thank you. Although I am a novice at sprouting, I am a fast learner. It is extremely important to rinse the sprouts at least twice a day and to really rinse them well until the water that you pour out is clear, or else they get moldy. If the sprouts are ready to be consumed but you need to store the...

"time for an ultrasound to verify problem areas"

That makes sense, and then you can make a decision based on the results.

Re: 47 Proven Health Benefits of Supplemental Zinc (with referen

Not really. Most of the points made have the word 'may' in the heading which means the claimed results are possible but not necessarily proven and certainly not guaranteed. The title of the article states "47 Proven Health Benefits of Supplemental Zinc", if the health benefits were proven, the word ...

Re: Vitamin K probably should be taken with higher doses of D3

"200 mcg is the typical dosage for K2."

Actually for the product she is referring to, 100 mcg is the recommended daily dosage. The Life Extension product I take also has the all-trans menaquinone-7 at 100 mcg daily. Taking 200 mcg is likely not an issue.


It is likely she meant mcg and not mg!

Re: Concerns about gabapentin

I started Gabapentin a few weeks ago out of desperation. Although I am taking it in low dosage, it is very powerful and I have come to realize that I have been experiencing side effects primarily with regard to my vision and balance (both of which I already have to cope with some minor disfunction)....

Re: Experimental Tongue Therapy Helps Restore Brain Function

It is odd that this device did not gain approval. There are numerous other similar devices that have been approved. It is likely that many could benefit from it. It all boils down to politics unfortunately. Hopefully they will try to get approval again in the future.

Re: Homegrown sprouted/microgreen vegetables - Higher nutrition-NO PESTICIDES!

I just enjoyed my first batch of sprouted sunflower seeds. They are absolutely delicious and have a very nice texture as well as the stem and leafs are thicker/larger than typical sprouts. In fact, they are possibly the best tasting green vegetable I have ever eaten. I ordered some without the shell...

I have been maintaining my D level around 70, and have maintained around that level for a couple of years but for some unexpected reason it jumped in my latest test about a month ago (it is very important to test every few months) so I have cut back substantially.

My d3 level seems to change periodically and I am constantly adjusting my intake. I have been typically takings 40,000 iu to 60,000 iu daily but my d3 level jumped up my last blood test by about 50 points, so I have cut my intake to about 30,000 iu. and will be retesting in about 3-4 months.
