Diabetes, Magnesium, Bicarbonates & Hydrogen

Most of my writings in my diabetes book centered around the essential power of magnesium and bicarbonates working together to manage and even cure diabetes. Early in 2020, at the age of 67, after a lifetime of eating too much sugar, I was diagnosed with diabetes with a fasting level of 132. Fortunately for me, I knew what to do and blew off the diagnosis in two weeks by greatly increasing my magnesium intake. Continue reading

How Your Gut Health Impacts Your Disease Risk

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • A significant proportion of your immune system resides in your gastrointestinal tract. Harvard researchers have now identified the specific population of gut bacteria that modulate localized and systemic immune responses to ward off viral invaders
  • Bacteroides fragilis and other bacteria in the Bacteroides family initiate a signaling cascade that induces the release of interferon-beta, which protects against viral invasion by stimulating immune cells to attack the virus and causing virus-infected cells to self-destruct
  • Zonulin-mediated gut permeability plays a determining role in the pathogenesis of many chronic inflammatory diseases. Zonulin is produced in response to bad bacteria. It flushes the bacteria out by opening up the tight junctions
  • Aside from bacteria overgrowth, gluten is a powerful trigger of zonulin release as the zonulin pathway misinterprets gluten as a potential harmful component of a microorganism
  • Chronic inflammatory diseases associated with dysregulation of the zonulin pathway and leaky gut include autoimmune disorders, metabolic disorders, intestinal diseases, neuroinflammatory diseases and cancer of the brain and liver

Vitamin D Reduces Cancer Deaths

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Several recent studies demonstrate vitamin D can have a significantly beneficial impact on your cancer risk, both in terms of preventing cancer and in the treatment of cancer
  • A secondary analysis of the VITAL study found patients with no prior history of cancer who took 2,000 IUs of vitamin D per day reduced their risk for metastatic cancer and death by 17%
  • The risk for metastatic cancer and death was reduced by as much as 38% among those who also maintained a healthy weight
  • Another meta-analysis found supplementation with vitamin D resulted in a 30% reduction in adverse colorectal cancer outcomes. Vitamin D also improved outcomes among patients already diagnosed with colorectal cancer
  • Research has also shown women who have a vitamin D level at or above 60 ng/mL (150 nmol/L) have an 82% lower risk of breast cancer compared to those with levels below 20 ng/mL (50 nmol/L)

The Remarkable Benefits of Low-Dose Naltrexone

The Remarkable Benefits of Low-Dose Naltrexone

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Low-dose naltrexone, an opiate antagonist, can benefit most autoimmune and chronic pain conditions
  • LDN is also being used as an adjunct for cancer. Research by professor Angus George Dalgleish and Dr. Wei Lou showed LDN could bring cancer cells into remission using pulsed dosing
  • When microdosed, LDN can help potentiate long-term users of opioids, allowing them to reduce their dependence and lower their required opioid dose
  • Naltrexone only briefly blocks the opioid receptor. Its chief clinical benefit is in the rebound effect, which includes an upregulation of your immune system and subsequent reduction in inflammation
  • Other conditions being treated with LDN include Lyme disease and its co-infections, fibromyalgia, SIBO, restless leg syndrome, depression, dermatological issues and even infertility
