Sodium Acetate

I introduced sodium acetate to the nutritional community, and its use has rightly taken off for its effects on gut health as well as helping to improve and balance energy levels, as many people do not naturally produce enough acetic acid in the gut to support a healthy metabolic rate. It's even helpful in treating things like alcoholism and addiction. But the taste is rather off-putting, and I

Brown Sugar, Lime, and Basil Fruit Salad

Fruit is probably the most important food that we can eat as human beings. Chock-full of important things like boron, potassium, and vitamin C, it's really hard to beat fruit's benefit to human health, and in fact I came to understand vitamin C's role in curing thyroid disease and thus fruit's indispensable role in sustaining a properly working metabolism, but sometimes it's hard to want to eat fruit.

5 Signs You're An Alcoholic

One bright, beautiful summer Saturday when I was twenty-eight I was at a party in the Hollywood Hills. My friend's pool was once Walt Disney's, though this contemporary house had been built between Walt Disney's actual house and the pool so we were not in the same rooms that Walt used to walk. The house looked over the whole of Los Angeles, and since there were only about twelve people at the party, all of us familiar with each other now for a number of years, there was a more intimate feeling than usual L.A. pool parties.

How Cardio Gives You Cancer

For about half of my life from age 15 to 30 I was a competitive swimmer. I loved the pool and the camaraderie of a team. I didn’t really compete as an adult, but trained competitively and usually lead my lane during long, grueling practices. I felt alive when the water rushed over my body at top speed, proud of my athletic ability, part of something special when bonding with my teammates. I was a sprinter, swimming freestyle and butterfly so fast you could count on one hand the number of strokes it took me to get across the pool.

Hair Regrowth Progress

Hair grows during late spring, summer, fall, and into the start of winter. Here is a visual update of my own hair regrowth going on right now. About half of what you see was regrown the first time I "accidentally" regrew it while developing niacin therapy (this is a chapter in my book which explains how to stimulate endogenous niacin synthesis and is not the same as taking supplemental niacin).

Iodine—The Forgotten Antibiotic

Last night I got an urgent inquiry from a woman whose children had contracted a very uncomfortable stomach bug. One was sick a few days earlier and the other developed symptoms soon after, both of them with vomiting, diarrhea, and an aversion to food. Their doctor had diagnosed it as "gastritis," which basically means he doesn't have a clue what it was, as the term gastritis simply means inflation of the gastrointestinal system, and sent them home just as sick as when they had arrived.

Cream of Sweet Potato

The best thing you’ve never had. I began having sweet potatoes shortly after learning that root vegetables are quite effective in helping our stomach bacteria produce butyric acid. All the short chain fatty acids that our gut microbiota produce are important, but butyric acid is one of the more difficult to come by in sufficient amounts if you are at all ill (metabolically speaking).

Scallop Chowder

I have gotten many inquiries on ideas for meals, and because I am fairly erratic in what I eat I think the best way to respond is to just show what I cook at home (highlighted in my Instagram feed above). Today I made scallop chowder.

Usually my readers have been those familiar with the ideas behind this kind of health approach, but as my reach extends more visitors do not know where or why this approach to health originates, so here is a short explanation of the why behind my blog and unique approach to understanding health.

Surviving Accutane

We can know from some of the most serious cases of Accutane poisoning that the primary organ to be affected, and thus compromised, is the pancreas. Accutane and its sister medications do their damage by forcing the extreme oxidation of cholesterol and other pancreatic functions, thus destroying the pancreas or part of it.

Vitamin C Therapy

Something pretty great has been going on in my health life. Every morning when I wake up my fingertips are nice and rosy-colored, my feet are warm and I don't want to get out of bed. It didn't used to be like this.

Supplement Guide

When I was 26 I heard about an exciting study which showed that an elusive compound isolated from the skins of grapes could extend lifespan by a whopping 50%. The article also claimed it had the potential to cure many diseases. A future in which I no longer felt constant pain, nor struggled to stay lean sounded within reach.
