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

I am now totally 'off the grid' when it comes to store bought vegetables, I am growing my own in limited varieties/quantities hydroponically and of course am now heavily using the Easygreen sprouter. The Easygreen system is excellent in every way. The sprouts are delicious! I just started growing on...

Re: Is Dr. Sclafani still around?

I think the fact is that at this time no one knows whether this procedure really, really works. In spite of a lot of negative info out there regarding the procedure, the most encouraging fact is that some people are being helped, people who were in pretty bad shape prior to procedure. BUT keep in mi...

Re: MS SUCKS and it is time our Government KNOWS IT!!

Actually, the reality is that nothing has changed. Like others before and after Zamboni, the claim of a cure for MS has been made over and over again by many, many people - Swank may have been the first and possibly the most famous and that was about 50 years ago. And yet, there is no conclusive evi...

Re: Why Ocrevus is a new favorite drug by doctors?

"Ocrevus vs. placebo on disability progression. Two data plots which are nearly identical. I've asked this question before, maybe you can answer it. What am I missing?

"Nearly 14 years old and Bromley's post could have been written last week..." While this thread goes back many years, frankly it appears nothing has changed that I know of since my dad was diagnosed about 50 years ago. He could have written the same letter back then... And perhaps we could go back ...

Re: Sacha Inchi - perhaps one of the world’s healthiest superfoods + Gooseberries

Hopefully you will be able to find a local company at a more reasonable price. This company is in Thailand. Perhaps they can assist you. https://www.nathantrad.com/?gclid=Cj0KCQjwi43oBRDBARIsAExSRQEwlvohIwx0v5pSSkXxU-T60S2s3-bXYNMhy7YoiXboPEbQwfTtJgQaAt9KEALw_wcB Good luck. FWIW, this product is a g...

Sacha Inchi - perhaps one of the world’s healthiest superfoods + Gooseberries

I decided a number of years ago to add as many non-traditional low saturated fat foods to my diet as possible. I just discovered this one, Sacha inchi. As it turns out, it is high in omega 3 fatty acids too! I ordered these from nuts.com, an excellent source of quality nuts and other healthy foods a...

Re: Bovine meat and milk factors (BMMFs)

Apparently salmon is one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet. It contains high-quality protein and has large amounts of magnesium, potassium, selenium and B vitamins (5, 6) and many other nutrients and of course Omega 3s. Studies show that people who regularly eat fatty fish, such as salm...

Re: Bovine meat and milk factors (BMMFs)

"Dear Elliot,do you think everybody on planet should eat wild caught salmon, because it has omega-3?" Good question, IF you are going to eat fish, it should be wild caught in order to maximize health benefits. I think that anyone with MS or a chronic illness should be on a high good fat diet. How y...

Re: Bovine meat and milk factors (BMMFs)

Not all red meats are bad for you. Few will dispute that fish (preferably wild caught) is considered healthy because of its high good fat content (omega 3s) and low bad fat content. Even Dr. Swank's diet included fish! 100% Grass fed/grass finished meat has very similar characteristics to fish and i...

Re: Salt

Some interesting thoughts about salt... 1. I have learned recently that the body, for the most part, regulates its sodium level naturally to the optimum level it needs just as it does for many other nutrients. 2. Life on this planet evolved from the oceans and salt apparently was a primary factor. ...

That is what the big pharma wants people to think which is what is to be expected And for each product, it certainly looks that way (that they work as claimed ) if you look at their fancy websites and claims made on the trial data on their websites (based on the clinical trials they did).

There is a lot of statistical data available on the internet and the results are fairly consistent overall.
