Lead - appears to be a bigger factor than I thought
Correlative evidence - but the numbers are staggering.

Dr. Davis : It sounds like the rise began at about the 3-hour mark, correct, Valley?

If so, this is a normal pattern with rise in H2 from fermentation in the colon, not the small intestine.

artemisinin anti fungal
We cite essential oils for SIFO.  Why are we not using artemisinin?  I know the leading SME, Dr. Singh, Washington University on the subject.  Arty is amazing and has tons of potential to include anti parasitic and anti fungal.  Has anyone in here used it and especially in tandem with the aire machine?

Covid Coagulation
Derived from Facebook:

Heather Ryan

Interesting. Anyone else heard this? A friend shared with me today. Curious if there is any truth to this!!

“Italy has allegedly discovered covid is not a virus, but a bacterium. It clots the blood and reduces the oxygen saturation from dispersing throughout the body. They went against the World Health Organization’s \"law\" that no bodies be autopsied. When Italian Ministry of Health ordered many autopsies, they found the blood was clotted in all of the patients veins. They immediately started using aspirin 100mg and a coagulant medication. And have had immense success. 14,000 people were released from the hospital as \"healthy\" and covid free. Italy is demanding Bill Gates and the World health Organization be held accountable for \"crimes against humanity\" for misleading, misdirecting, and withholding life saving information from the world, which cost the lives of thousands. Ventilators and ICU units were not necessary. A mandated vaccine is not necessary. Covid19 is a bacterium, easily
treated with aspirin and coagulant. Spread the word! Make this global. Hopefully our president will learn about this and do something about it! Before we lose all of our constitutional freedoms.

Discovery: Autopsies Prove that COVID-19 is a Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation (Pulmonary Thrombosis)
Posted by Chinonyerem Emmanuella

It is now clear that the whole world has been attacking the so-called Coronavirus Pandemic wrongly due to a serious pathophysiological diagnosis error.

According to valuable information from Italian pathologists, ventilators and intensive care units were never needed.

Autopsies performed by the Italian pathologists has shown that it is not pneumonia but it is Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation (Thrombosis) which ought to be fought with antibiotics, antivirals, anti-inflammatories and anticoagulants.

If this is true for all cases, that means the whole world is about to resolve this novel pandemic earlier than expected.

However, protocols are currently being changed in Italy who have been adversely affected by this pandemic.

The impressive case of a Mexican family in the United States who claimed they were cured with a home remedy was documented: three 500 mg aspirins dissolved in lemon juice boiled with honey, taken hot.

The next day they woke up as if nothing had happened to them! Well, the scientific information that follows proves they are right!

“THE END OF COVID-19 IS NEAR”- GAIN AFRICA DIRECTOR DECLARES, BACKED W.H.O CHIEFS

This information was released by a medical researcher from Italy:

“Thanks to 50 autopsies performed on patients who died of COVID-19, Italian pathologists have discovered that IT IS NOT PNEUMONIA, strictly speaking, because the virus does not only kill pneumocytes of this type, but uses an inflammatory storm to create an endothelial vascular thrombosis.”

In disseminated intravascular coagulation, the lung is the most affected because it is the most inflamed, but there is also a heart attack, stroke and many other thromboembolic diseases.

In fact, the protocols left antiviral therapies useless and focused on anti-inflammatory and anti-clotting therapies. These therapies should be done immediately, even at home, in which the treatment of patients responds very well.

If the Chinese had denounced it, they would have invested in home therapy, not intensive care! So, the way to fight it is with antibiotics, anti-inflammatories and anticoagulants.

An Italian pathologist reports that the hospital in Bergamo did a total of 50 autopsies and one in Milan, 20, that is, the Italian series is the highest in the world, the Chinese did only 3, which seems to fully confirm the information.

In a nutshell, the disease is determined by a disseminated intravascular coagulation triggered by the virus; therefore, it is not pneumonia but pulmonary thrombosis, a major diagnostic error.

Some world leaders doubled the number of resuscitation places in the ICU, with unnecessary exorbitant costs.

According to the Italian pathologist, treatment in ICUs is useless if thromboembolism is not resolved first. “If we ventilate a lung where blood does not circulate, it is useless, in fact, nine (9) patients out of ten (10) will die because the problem is cardiovascular, not respiratory.”

“It is venous microthrombosis, not pneumonia, that determines mortality.”

According to the literature, inflammation induces thrombosis through a complex but well-known pathophysiological mechanism.

Unfortunately, what the scientific literature said, especially Chinese, until mid-March was that anti-inflammatory drugs should not be used.

Now, the therapy being used in Italy is with anti-inflammatories and antibiotics, as in influenza, and the number of hospitalized patients has been reduced.

He also discovered that many deaths, even in their 40s, had a history of fever for 10 to 15 days, which were not treated properly.

The inflammation does a great deal of tissue damage and creates ground for thrombus formation. However, the main problem is not the virus, but the immune hyperreaction that destroys the cell where the virus is installed.

In fact, patients with rheumatoid arthritis have never needed to be admitted to the ICU because they are on corticosteroid therapy, which is a great anti-inflammatory.

With this important discovery, it is possible to return to normal life and open closed deals due to the quarantine, though not immediately, but with time.

Kindly share so that the health authorities of each country can make their respective analysis of this information, prevent further deaths and redirect investments appropriately; the vaccine may come later.”

    I believe the virus story was a misdirection to get a greater kill number while the rest of the world is chasing the virus claims. I say this because I know of places that have tested for both pre 10 day and post 10 day exposures with the igg and igm antibody tests and everyone was negative. Yet individuals within the sample set are having coagulation, one thickening one bruising and bleeding. The thickening is on warfarin the thinning is on nothing.

    The entire objective of this exercise is to take individual rights away. Mark us, track us, manage us, and worse than cattle, trim off the edges of the herd or selectively cull and kill us.

    The elite mapped the genome years ago. They have the ability to transcribe and gene edit with CRSPR and others tech. Automation, AI, robotoics.

    WHO NEEDS THE EATERS THAT COST SO MUCH TO KEEP AROUND THAT STRAIN SOCIAL PROGRAMS AND REPRODUCE LIKE RATS............

    I almost cant blame them, for they buy their own PR and think they with superior intelligence are going to save or morph into a singularity the entire human race.

    PAY ATTENTION TO THE FOLLOWING:

    I have a close friend, this person is on warfarin for atrial fibrillation. This person is also vocal against the elite, government, etc. This persons recent INR was 1.8, but is always locked at 2.4 INR and this person has not missed a dose and has had no changes to diet and is always between 2.2 and 2.5.

    Does not seem that off, but when this person had blood drawn in my center yesterday, the blood in a tiger striped tube coagulated unbelievably quick, even after rocking the tubes back and forth as instructed. it will be interesting to see what the labs return.

    The hypoxia and the rest this just makes sense. Good post Heather.

Stopped getting notice of replies to Subscription threads
Yesterday I noticed that I had no emails regarding new posts in my subscription threads. That seemed weird, but it wasn’t until I was checking for new threads this morning that I saw all the replies I’d missed yesterday. I haven’t made any changes to my account, so don’t know why this has happened.

hopscotch: Okay. Once I marked them "Not Spam," I started receiving notices again. In addition, I’ve put the address in my address book.

Thanks so much for the help.

my thyroid progress
I have had hypothyroidism since a child!  I didn’t start medicine until I was about 20.  All of the women on my maternal side has either hypo or hyper with few exceptions.  I started out on Armour thyroid and did well on the highest dose they produced. Then I was put on Synthroid ( because it was better and easier to manage). I was probably low T3 for a lot of the time based on what I know now.  I was pretty much always symptomatic. Then after reading Undoctored I requested proper thyroid testing.  

My tests showed:

                                2017          2018.         2019

TSH.                          .04.            5.66.         0.11

FT3.                           1.54.          1.83.          2.8

Free T4.                      1.54.           0.6.          1.0


My present meds are levothyoxine 112mc and liothyronine 10 mcg. I have started kelp tablets 225 mcg since the last labs were done.

In early 2019 I tried the Armour again and I wasn’t making any progress. I get the present meds at no cost.  

I had to change doctors when I moved in June 2019 and he offered me a referral to an endocrinologist but I didn’t want to change anything at that time.
I need to go back for a follow up visit and I am concerned about the TSH.  I was thinking perhaps lowering the levothyroxine slightly might be a next move.  I would appreciate feedback on possible dose adjustments and also if I should get any other lab tests.  

I did have the antibody titer and it did not indicate Hashimoto’s according to my doctor.  That was in 2017.

Dr. Davis : I’ve not seen much success with taking T3 alone unless TSH begins at 2.0 mIU/L or less without any T4.

Constipation and Parkinson’s
Does anybody know of good treatments/supplements for constipation due to Parkinson’s disease. I follow the Undoctored diet as best as I can (except for eating baked potatoes because I lost to much weight without them). My movement disorders doctor prescribed Linzess and so far that is the only thing that has worked although it is crazily expensive.  I also take Miralax daily. I have increased my water intake as well. Any suggestions? Thanks

[Zoom] Video Meet Tips

[Zoom] Video Meet Tips

Edition: 2019-01-18

The UIC video meet feature is presently (since late 2016) using the Zoom Cloud Meetings technology from Zoom Video Communications, Inc.

The UIC help page for this is: Virtual Meetup Help. Read that page first. In general, it’s a trivially simple process to join a meeting. The following article provides some wider detail.

Meetings can only be joined once in progress. You can’t join until the meeting goes live, which may not occur until precisely the scheduled time, or even a few minutes later if the host is tardy. The link to join appears in both the front page INNER CIRCLE DISCUSSIONS scroll, and on the Inner Circle Virtual Meetups page: Meetups Currently in Progress scroll.

Dr.D’s avatar For the weekly Vmeet, check that Dr. Davis is shown as the host. Unless you are the intended host, don’t attempt to start the meeting yourself. If you do that, the intended host is unlikely to join the meet, and if they do, they will not have host control, nor can those functions be transferred once the meet has started.

You do not need a Zoom account. You do not need to sign up for meets. You do need to be logged in on UIC. You may need to provide an arbitrary identity upon joining the first time, which can be your real name, UIC user screen name (suggested), or something else.

The Conference Experience

When you join one of these conferences, typically you’ll see a thumbnail for each participant. If they have their cameras enabled, you’ll see live, low-rate video from each camera. If they have their mic enabled, you’ll hear whatever they have to say (or noise, if they are in a noisy environment like a moving vehicle). Controls are provided for managing what you see, and what you send.

Mute. Mute Mute. By default your mic is live when joining (although your video is off). See more below.

If you don’t wish to be seen, use the icon to turn off your video (and it is off by default). Don’t just obscure the camera lens, because that just causes the auto-exposure to transmit a noisy dark gray image from your camera, chewing up network bandwidth needlessly.

Zoom chat button Enable sidebar chat. The conference has a Chat feature for sending messages to specific participants (or All), but newer users may not notice the indicator, and may miss that they have a message. All of the message traffic is lost when the conference ends. You can copy and paste in the Chat dialog, and save it.  I routinely save it for open meets that I attend, which is then anonymized and posted to the weekly vmeet thread.

There’s also a Raise Hand feature buried in one of the menus, but it either doesn’t work with the version UIC is running or whatever it does is going unnoticed.

Although user-initiated meets are limited to 45 minutes, Staff-initiated meets may be unlimited. The weekly meet can easily run 90 minutes.

Additional Setup Information

You need a supported device to get to the conference. If you don’t have audio and/or camera on that device, it is not yet possible to connect by phone (below).

For a normal join, obviously, to even lurk on a Video Meet requires at least audio output on your device (speakers or headphones). To contribute requires audio {microphone} input. My main desktop PC deliberately has no mic or cam, so I use my laptop or Android phone for meets. I’m less certain about our ancient Android tab. Some homework may be required for older devices.

Ideally, use a headset. When you use a speaker, your mic picks up not just room sounds and your voice, but also all the conference audio. The Zoom app is very likely using squelch and feedback cancellation algorithms, but they probably have limits, which, when exceeded, result in distracting artifacts in the conference audio. If you must use a speaker, it’s even more important to mute your mic except when speaking. If audio from your mic becomes a problem, don’t be surprised if the host mutes you. Unmute to speak.

The presentation on the Android phone is, unsurprisingly, a bit different, due to the smaller screen and presumed touch input. You really need a screen-side camera. There are fewer on-screen controls until you touch it, and on mine, there were 5 separate screens, accessed via swiping. It was not possible to see all the participants at once.

System Requirements

See the Zoom page on technical details. The sidebar has links for additional platforms. I can report that my 2Mbps down/500Kbps up rural wireless internet is just adequate. A connection that is too sloggy might require opting out of video.

It appears possible to join without a camera. I’m less sure of without a microphone. In any event, you can lurks, with both cam off and mic muted.

Software: the Zoom tech relies on:

The Zoom site appears to have numerous video tutorials.

Tip: Install Well Prior to First Conference

For lowest risk of surprises, you might want to run through the install/add-on process some time prior to the conference. You may need admin privileges for application installs on your machine.

It may be worthwhile to create a {free} account on Zoom. It’s not used for a UIC Meet. UIC meets automatically create an account for you under the site license.

How to Test Your Capability and Connection

Once installed, direct your browser to the
Zoom Test Page. doing this will avoid the annoyance of discovering during conference that no one can hear you.

The test video (if any) displayed from your camera appears to be via remote loop-back. Low resolution and/or any judder speak to your bandwidth.

There’s a link on the test page for
Test Computer Mic & Speakers
The speaker test is just a tone from Zoom. The mic test is a delayed remote loop-back from your mic.

Take note of the various icons around the screen (and you may have to activate your pointing device to make them appear). The audio and video mutes are lower left on the desktop app.

The presentation using the Android app was different from the desktop app. Click the icon or username at lower left for some options. The other icons then appear. Also, the test conference had no audio or video loop-back, and I was only able to join it by starting with a browser, which handed of to the app. If Zoom has a static conference number for the test conference, it’s not published.

Further, it’s not clear, on mobile, if the audio for a conference is considered Media or Call. If Media, be sure to test your headset, because some Bluetooth devices (like my Motorola H720) support only Call. I’ll be using a wired headset if I join via my Android device.

Meet-Up Tips

  • Enable video upon join, unless you don’t want to be seen. Your cam is off by default.
     
  • Mute shortly after joining a meet (after saying hi if that’s still going on). Your mic may be on by default. It’s an icon at screen lower left. Stay muted unless getting ready to speak, then resume mute afterward.
     
  • If there’s any doubt about your audio output and microphone status, by all means briefly hit the Zoom test page and adjust as needed.
     
  • Scheduled UIC conferences may not be joinable until the Live Event banner appears, and that may not occur until the precise scheduled time. Check the Virtual Meetups page.
     
  • Getting in early on the conference may matter, because so far it’s had a relatively low participant count limit (raised to 20 for the 2017-07-06 event). If you find that you can’t get in, please remark about it, perhaps a comment on this forum thread.
     
  • If not using (and maybe even if using) your Zoom account, look around to see if you are being asked to provide some identifying name that appears to everyone else under your thumbnail. Note that these names are relatively arbitrary and may not be the same as usernames on the UIC forum.
     
  • Chat works. Use it to do things like sending additional information to other participants, where not of general value to all. Use Chat-all sparingly. If someone uses it, consider setting the reply to just that user.
     
  • If using a Zoom app, it’s worth firing it some just prior to meet start, because it checks for updates.

Mute. Mute. Mute.

Mute shortly after joining a meet. Unmute only when preparing to speak, and while speaking.

Your mic is open by default. Even if you aren’t speaking, it can pick up things that are remarkably disruptive to the meet. The top problems are:

  • pets, family members, household and neighborhood sounds
  • typing, mouse clicks and adjusting the PC/tablet/phone
  • echo: if you are listening via speaker (in device or external), the Zoom squelch algorithm has limited capability to cancel out what you are hearing from being picked up by your mic and being added back into the conference audio
  • hum in the audio chain from an external mic, or fan noise on a laptop

Thumbnail Issues

If you have your camera enabled, by default your view of yourself on your screen may be mirror-like left-to-right. Everyone else is correctly rectified, and they see you correctly rectified. There’s a video option for defeating the mirror.

The video app has options at upper right for presentation. The Gallery view may show everyone. The Speaker view may show what the app thinks is the current speaker, and an incomplete thumbnail stack of everyone else.

The Record button requires some sort of conference host approval, which is not likely to be granted until the consent issues are worked out.

My Device Can’t Conference

The most recent conference I attended did not have the phone tab. If it ever appears, here’s how it works:

  1. On the device you use for normal UIC/Cureality visits, install the Zoom app anyway.
  2. Go to the Zoom test page (above).
  3. Click the Phone Call tab on the Zoom dialog. It provides an example phone number and Meeting ID and Participant ID. Note the process here, but not the numbers.
  4. When the real meeting goes live, click through to it on your unsupported browsing device. Get the phone# and IDs for the actual conference. Make the call.

Why aren’t live video meetups recorded?
Why aren’t live video meetups recorded? I have a weekly event that interferes with the live inner circle. It’s immensely frustrating. As the live meetups are part of the promoted benefits of membership, it seems they should be recorded and available to ALL members, not just those who have Wednesday nights open. ... If they are recorded, please direct me to the location. Thanks.

High Cholesterol questions and help with interpretation
I have been on this protocol for three years. My most recent lab results (below)
upset my doctor and she is angry that I have refused to take statins. She said I am in imminent danger of having a heart attack or stroke. She is, however, willing to do whatever blood work and or tests that I request.

Here are my lab results for last two years

12/20/18 11/7/2019 
Cholesterol 307 366
Triglycerides   40   49
HDL Cholesterol 101 107
LDL Chol Direct 187 236
Chol/HDL Ratio 3.0 3.4
TSH 2.36 3.42

I’d like help with what lab work and tests I should request. We met in March and I won’t be able to meet with her again until after quarantine. I will probably need a connection with someone to help me evaluate what the results are.  I am a 71 year old female. I have been on this program for almost three years. I am 5’4" and weigh 155.

Thank you, I am really confused!!

Proteolytic enzymes, inflammation, arthritis, fibrin...
My ongoing search for the relief of lumbar back pain continues. It is very puzzling that every other moving part of my body feels limber, loose, and pain free even my neck issues seem to be improving while my lower back is just the opposite - tight, stiff, with very limiting pain in most activities.

Been thinking of trying proteolytic enzymes because of their purported affect on inflammatory response, fibrin and arthritis. Anyone have any opinions on these things or do you think its just more snake oil concoctions?

Change in Forum Reply Behavior
To All:

For some time there has been dissatisfaction over the behavior experienced when posting a reply.  In the past, Members saw a "Reply Success" page and had to click a "Return" link to return to the the top of the topic page and then needed to scroll down to the bottom of the topic page to view their reply.

A fix was attempted previously which worked erratically so we reinstated the original behavior.  Recently, a small change was implemented that returns Members directly to their reply at the bottom of the topic page after clicking the Return link instead of the top of the topic page.  This improvement appears to be stable.

We have now implemented the second part of the upgrade that eliminates the Success display and need to click a Return link altogether.  Members are immediately redirected to their reply at the bottom of the topic page upon successful reply submission.

Please note any irregularities here should this attempt at upgrading functionality become unstable.

If things work out, we can extend this functionality to other Forum operations where desired and applicable.

HH

JannyLite: Bless you!! This is so welcome. I really need to read through all the recent Announcements more often. Don’t catch them in the Recent Topics often enough. Thank you!

Does anyone here manage their atrial fibrillation with magnesium?
I started the low carb high fat diet two months ago, and my husband joined me on the diet 5 weeks ago.

It took many years of trial and error, but he finally found a combination of medications, (high doses of) magnesium, and other nutritional supplements that work well for him.

He had his annual visit with his cardiologist this week, and we learned that he was in asymptomatic A Fib which has never happened before. Now, the only way he can tell when he's in A Fib is by checking his pulse.

We suspect that the diet may have played a role by 1) increasing cortisol and 2) affecting his electrolyte balance.

Does anyone here have experience with this?

Many thanks!

Dr. Davis : Magnesium Water should have no taste. 

If you detect "off" flavors or scents, then you may have purchased a mild of magnesia that has sodium hypochlorite. We avoid brands with this additive (bleach).

Magnesium Malate and Citrate

I bought the Source Naturals 625 MG Magnesium Malate, because I prefer capsules.  The recommended dose would be 6 per day.  https://www.sourcenaturals.com/products/GP1204

Since I also take Magnesium Citrate (to avoid constipation) what would be the correct combination of the two products. 

https://www.sourcenaturals.com/products/GP1905

Perhaps 4 of the Malate and 2 of the Citrate?

Thanks for advice on this.

Low Carb Diet and T3
it seems to be well-established that a low carb diet will have a tendency to reduce T3 levels fairly dramatically, and to significantly increase Reverse T3 levels as well.

Should I be worried that following a low carb diet will adversely affect my thyroid function, or is the reduction in T3 on a low carb diet an indication that overall endocrine efficiency has been enhanced and that less T3 is required?   

Kathy in OK: Hi Boo!  You always make me smile.

Full thyroid panel results
Finally got a full thyroid panel done.  Here are my results:

T4,Free(Direct)              1.33 ng/dL                     Range 0.82-1.77 
TSH                               0.988 uIU/mL                Range 0.450-4.500
Reverse T3, Serum        21.5 ng/dL                     Range9.2-24.1
Vitamin D, 25-Hydroxy  58.1 ng/mL                   Range 30.0-100.0
Thyroxine (T4)               7.7 ug/dL                      Range  4.5-12.0
Thyroglobulin Antibody    <1.0 IU/mL                Range  0.0-0.9
Thyroid Peroxidase (TPO) Ab 12 IU/mL              Range  0-34
Triiodothyronine (T3), Free     3.1 pg/mL            Range  2.0-4.4


In my limited knowledge, looks like my reverse T3 is on the high side which could be causing my symptoms.  (Inability to lose weight, excessive hair loss)


Any advice?

Angie

Candibactin, Essential Oils, Ulcerative Colitis, Pyoderma Gangrenosum
Rare, but we have a case that came through our door with one of our addicts of Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG).  It is autoimmune and not contagious, but see for yourself this is a hot mess.

Instinctively, I suggested to my clinicians to engage with red light therapy for 20 minutes daily and  Hyperbarric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT), which we outsource.  I backtracked and found substantial outcome studies to support my treatment ideas.

I am starting him from lips to ass on oral hygiene initiatives as well as wheat belly protocols.  I know the GI is involved.  Ulcerative Colitis usually accompanies this condition.

Question:  The Candibactin and Essential Oils (EO’s) will they aggravate the Ulcerative Colitis?

I tend to think to cool him out with slippery elm, aloe, CDB and curcumin first and stabilize and hammer down on the inflammatory markers.  However, his gut needs an overhaul.  This is a marine who lost everything.  A person without a home, living in the woods.  He has served time and as a result of his past no one wants to help him.  I am not letting this slide on my watch.  Any suggestions or comments are appreciated.

My Diary of SIBO / SIFO Treatment

Here’s the plan for SIBO & SIFO weeks 1 & 2.
Antibactin AR - 2 pills in morning, 2 pills in evening
Antibactin BR - 2 pills in morning, 2 pills in evening
NAC 500mg -1 pill in morning, 1 pill in evening
Curcumin 665mg - 1 pill in morning, 1 pill mid-day, 1 pill in evening
EO’s - 3-4 drops mixed in a Tbsp of coconut oil - morning, mid-day, evening
A mixed-prebiotic smoothie for breakfast

Here’s the plan for SIFO over weeks 3 & 4
NAC 500mg -1 pill in morning, 1 pill in evening
Curcumin 665mg - 1 pill in morning, 1 pill mid-day, 1 pill in evening
EO’s - 4-5 drops of in a Tbsp of oil - morning, mid-day, evening
A mixed-prebiotic smoothie for breakfast
A mix of probiotic foods (but discontinuing l. reuteri 4 to 5 days before retesting with Aire device.)
1 pill per day - Renew Life® Ultimate Flora™ Women’s Care, 90 billion,12 strains

Beyond these four weeks, I’ll continue to repeat the full regimen until Aire numbers test negative.


Days 1& 2 of SIBO/SIFO treatment
Most notable changes since starting the herbal antibiotics include;
1)a sudden acne breakout with distinct rosacea or wind-burned look to my face 2)a flatter stomach, less bloating 3)more restful sleep, deeper sleep 4)a noticeable increase in energy & vitality, 5)somewhat less hot/swollen tongue and gums 7)a few brief dizzy spells and a headache. So far, not too bad, but I’m also making a point of taking charcoal capsules between the herbal antibiotics.

SIBO Treatment for Ocular Rosacea
We have been doing the full program since January hoping to help my husband reverse Metabolic Syndrome. The key markers are high BP, overweight, ocular rosacea, itchy ear (fungus), and skin rash.

We purchased the AIRE device and didn’t get high readings, so figured we didn’t have SIBO. We decided to treat SIFO thinking perhaps the symptoms were linked to that. We are in Australia and cannot purchase the Candibactin products here, so we have used whatever we can find that fights fungus, namely Kyolic Garlic 2 2X per day, Olive Leaf Extract, and cinnamon oil. When we added the cinnamon oil, his ear symptoms started to clear up and his rash went away which was great to see. However, the ocular rosacea became worse, to the point that he had a hard time reading, etc. because of pain.

On last week’s discussion, it was mentioned that when you treat for one condition, another might flare-up. Keith recognized the correlation between his eye flare up and treating for SIFO. So we decided SIBO must be causing the ocular rosacea.  As I mentioned, we cannot get the Candibactin products here, so we printed out some studies linking Rifaximin treatment to ocular rosacea, and were fortunate that a GP was willing to prescribe Rifaximin. The study was the key, as he knew nothing at all about SIBO or ocular rosacea, but trusted that Keith had been diagnosed in 2013 by an eye specialist who wanted to put him on some killer antibiotic at that time. He read the protocol from the study and prescribed accordingly.

Keith started Rifaximin yesterday, 1200 mg per day. We are using 5 g. inulin in the morning per your recommendation to keep bacteria active. We are using a probiotic recommended for use in combination with antibiotics recommended by our pharmacist,saccharomyces cerevisae (boulardi), a probiotic yeast which supports the establishment of friendly bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract. It is named SB Floractiv, produced by BioCeuticals, one of those "practitioner only" brands they were willing to sell us. 

It seems that by treating for SIFO we uncovered SIBO. Keith has been relieved of the fungal problems after three weeks of treatment, and now he is on Rifaximin he is beginning to experience improvements in the Rosacea, albeit he has only been on the pills 24 hours, but he has noticed less pain in his eye and less upset when he ingests inulin.

We are very hopeful that we are on the right track! I have ordered a strong probiotic to use following his ten day course of treatment to rebuild the beneficial bacteria. It contains "Pylopass" which has a strain of reuteri that deals with H-pylori. I noted there is a risk of proliferating H-pylori after antibiotic treatment for SIBO.  

KarenC: We purchased activated charcoal today. Is there a preferred time of day to take it? The pharmacist suggested not to take it at the same time as medication. Suggestions?

Two Engineers contemplating the statistics.
I always stay far away from network news scare tactics and especially in this viral outbreak but Dave Feldman and Ivor Cummins have a more honest approach and have no problem admitting when an unknown is an unknown. There is little comfort these days in most information coming out and I am seeing it from all the extremes...I personally want to believe the reality lies somewhere in the middle and the Cummins/Feldman updates give me some solace in this regard. They promise future running updates as well.

Relative risks - Coronavirus
Not understanding the attention gap  ... tell me where I am wrong ..

Corona virus - peek (so far) about 50-deaths/day
Car accidents - about -- 100/day  ( all age groups )
Death due to lead exposure  1095/day ( mostly older )

Lancet paper says something like number one cause of early death could well be lead exposure - low levels matter..

The paper says :

"Although we cannot exclude residual confounding, we estimate that about 400 000 deaths are attributable to lead exposure every year in the USA, of which 250 000 are from cardiovascular disease. Concentrations of lead in blood lower than 5 μg/dL (<0·24 μmol/L) are an important, but largely ignored, risk factor for death in the USA, particularly from cardiovascular disease."

"Our findings suggest that, of 2·3 million deaths every year in the USA, about 400 000 are attributable to lead exposure, an estimate that is about ten times larger than the current one."

So my take is 400,000 deaths a year is more important than the coronavirus by - how do I say this? -- A WHOLE LOT !!!  ...

https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lanpub/article/PIIS2468-2667(18)30025-2/fulltext

,.,.,.
Those wanting to reduce their risk might want to consider BG and fattyacids..

http://high-fat-nutrition.blogspot.com/2020/03/cell-surface-oxygen-consumption-4.html

( I have not had influenza after I started low-carb - many many years ago... )
,.,.

Also - might be a link with people taking ace inhibitors and NSAIDs -- too soon to tell (I’ve said before that NSAIDs are not as safe as people think - I would only take a fever reducer if I had a fever over 103.5 - but then I might just do cold compresses..):

GI Map Testing
Dr. Davis: 
This is the test I was referring to in the 5/20/20 meetup.  I will be base lining with the GI Maps + Zonulin.  As mentioned I am willing to share my poop with friends and will post results.  Also, I have a cologuard on order and I have another test I need to find with fun color diagrams that I will post when I locate it.

Your comments are appreciated.

New GI MAP Microbial Markers - What Clinicians Need to Know, Jul 16, 2019
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EFB3ogALiAU&feature=emb_logo


PATHOGENS

The GI-MAP® includes pathogens (bacterial, parasitic, and viral) commonly known to cause intestinal gastroenteritis. It’s important to note that not all individuals with positive findings for pathogens will present with symptoms. Many factors, including the health of the individual, the transient nature of some pathogens, and the presence and expression of virulence factors all contribute to an individual’s symptoms.

Toxins are a type of virulence factor produced by certain pathogens. Since GI-MAP is a DNA-based test, results reflect the levels of pathogenic strains carrying the toxin genes, not the levels of any toxins that may be produced.

 

BACTERIAL PATHOGENS

  • Campylobacter
  • C. difficile Toxin A
  • C. difficile Toxin B
  • Enterohemorrhagic E. coli
  • E. coli O157
  • Enteroinvasive E. coli/Shigella
  • Enterotoxigenic E. coli LT/ST
  • Shiga-like Toxin E. coli stx1
  • Shiga-like Toxin E. coli stx2
  • Salmonella
  • Vibro cholerae
  • Yersinia enterocolitica

PARASITIC PATHOGENS

  • Cryptosporidium
  • Entamoeba histolytica
  • Giardia

VIRAL PATHOGENS

  • Adrenovirus 40/41
  • Norovirus GI
  • Norovirus GII

H. pylori

Recent studies have shown that nearly 50% of the world’s population may harbor H. pylori. And, although many carriers are asymptomatic, H. pylori is known to have a causative role in ulcers, chronic gastritis, and stomach cancer.

Additionally, in early phases of colonization, patients may experience hypochlorhydria followed by a change to hyper aciduria. Over time, additional H. pylori strains may colonize, including those with Virulence Factors and increased disease potential.

 

H. pylori

  • H. pylori
    • Virulence Factor, babA
    • Virulence Factor, cabA
    • Virulence Factor, cabPAI
    • Virulence Factor, dupA
    • Virulence Factor, iceA
    • Virulence Factor, opiA
    • Virulence Factor, vacA

 

  •  

NORMAL/COMMENSAL BACTERIA

Trillions of microorganisms inhabit the human intestine to make up a complex ecosystem that plays an important role in human health. Commensal bacteria extract nutrients and energy from our diets, maintain gut barrier function, produce vitamins (biotin and vitamin K), and protect against colonization by potential pathogens.

 

COMMENSAL BACTERIA

  • Akkermansia Mucinophilia
  • Bacteroides fragilis
  • Bifidobacterium spp.
  • Clostridia (class)
  • Enterobacter spp.
  • Enterococcus spp.
  • Escherichia spp.
  • Faecalbacterium prausnitzii
  • Lactobacillus spp.

BACTERIAL PHYLA

  • Bacteroidetes
  • Firmicutes
  • Firmicutes/Bacteroidetes Ratio

OPPORTUNISTIC/OVERGROWTH MICROBES

Many bacteria measured on the GI-MAP are considered opportunistic pathogens, as they only cause disease and illness in some individuals, particularly the immune-compromised. Many individuals come into contact with opportunistic bacteria and experience no symptoms. Most sources consider these microbes to be normal in the stool. However, they can cause gastroenteritis and inflammation at high levels in vulnerable patients. Symptoms may include diarrhea, loose stools, abdominal pain, or even constipation.

Overgrowth and excessive colonization by opportunistic bacteria may occur when the commensal bacteria are impaired by poor diet, antibiotic use, parasitic infection, or a weakened immune system. When intestinal permeability is present (see zonulin), these microbes could escape the lumen of the gut and infect extraintestinal sites.

 

ADDITIONAL DYSBIOTIC/OVERGROWTH BACTERIA

  • Enterococcus faecalis
  • Enterococcus faecium
  • Methanobacteriaceae (family)
  • Morganella morganii
  • Pseudomonas spp.
  • Pseudomonas aeruginosa
  • Staphylococcus spp.
  • Staphylococcus aureus
  • Streptococcus spp.

POTENTIAL AUTOIMMUNE TRIGGERS

  • Citrobacter spp.
  • Citrobacter freundii
  • Fusobacterium spp.
  • Klebsiella spp.
  • Klebsiella pneumoniae
  • Mycobacterium avium
  • Prevotella copri
  • Proteus spp.
  • Proteus mirabilis

FUNGI/YEAST

Fungal organisms are commonly found in the human digestive tract, but fungal overgrowth can cause illness in susceptible individuals. Fungal growth may be localized in the body. For instance, Candida spp. may be high in the large intestine but normal in the small intestine, and vice versa. In a patient with suspected fungal overgrowth, additional tests may be necessary to understand the complete picture of fungal overgrowth. Urinary D-arabinitol or antibodies to Candida are sometimes used.

 

FUNGI/YEAST

  • Candida albicans
  • Candida spp.
  • Geotricum spp.
  • Microsporidia spp.
  • Rhodoturula spp.

 

  •  

VIRUSES

Copy?

 

OPPORTUNISTIC VIRUSES

  • CMV- Cytomegalovirus
  • EBV- Epstein Bar Virus

 

  •  

PARASITES

A parasite is an organism that lives and feeds on a host organism at the expense of the host. The GI-MAP tests for pathogenic parasites and protozoa (some of which are non-pathogenic) most commonly occurring in the GI tract. Sources of exposure should be identified and eliminated to prevent reinfection.

 

PROTOZOA

  • Blastocystis hominis
  • Chilomastix mesnelli
  • Cyclospora cayetanenensis
  • Dientamoeba fragilis
  • Endolimax nana
  • Entamoeba coli
  • Pentatrichomonas hominis

WORMS

  • Ancyclostroma duodenale
  • Ascaris lumbricoides
  • Necator americanis
  • Trichuris trichiura
  • Taenia solium/saginada

INTESTINAL HEALTH MARKERS

DIGESTION

  • Elastase-1
  • Steatocrit

IMMUNE RESPONSE

  • SIgA
  • Anti-gliadin SIgA

INFLAMMATION

  • Calprotectin

GI MARKERS

  • β-Glucuronidase
  • Occult Blood - FIT

ADD-ON TESTS

  • Zonulin

 

  •  

ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE GENES

The GI-MAP includes results for detection of antibiotic resistance genes in the microbiome. If an antibiotic resistance gene is present, then that class of antibiotics is designated POSITIVE for antibiotic resistance. A positive result for the presence of resistance genes for a given antibiotic indicates that the antibiotic is not an ideal choice for an antibiotic protocol.

Antibiotic resistance genes apply to all of the microorganisms found in the fecal sample. Since microbes can rapidly share DNA under stress, the presence of antibiotic resistance in any organism is reason enough to avoid that drug class.

  • Macrolides
  • Vancomycin

UNIVERSAL MICROBIOTA RESISTANCE GENES

Best blood pressure reading in 20 years
Best blood pressure reading in 20 years: 121/58.  Started Undoctored in earnest 10 days ago.  I’m 78 and have been taking BP meds for 15 years. Overall health is good and I have also noticed reductions in discomfort In hands and ankles from arthritis. Currently taking 100 mg Irbesartan.  Delighted about this change.  Haven’t felt lightheaded but will be talking to family doctor tomorrow by phone about potentially reducing dose.  I could do this on my own by splitting the pills in half and continuing to take BP readings at home but would rather work with my MD, if he is on board.  Does this make sense to the group?  Thanks.

Dr. Davis : Yes, wonderful, Jupiter!

Of course, we cannot provide medical advice on stopping or reducing medications, but that would be a logical next step.

Miscellaneous thoughts: Fasting glucose and weaning off Beta Blocker
Miscellaneous thoughts on Memorial Day weekend.

Low carb:  this month, I have been eating low carb high fat keto for 3 years. After starting undoctored, I cycle in and out of ketosis on a regular basis.  I am down about 30 plus pounds from my peak weight and very close to my high school weight at approx. 160 pounds.  Low carb has been good to me. 

Drugs: I have eliminated my PPI, one blood pressure drug, and am currently working on weaning off of my beta blocker. My blood pressure has been good at around 115/75-80. This is my 3rd attempt to wean off of the beta blocker.  The other two times my heart started fluttering after a few weeks of weaning. This time I am doing it very slowly. I take two doses per day (coreg 6.25). I reduced the morning dose by 1/4 and am taking the full evening dose. I will do this for 4 weeks and then reduce the evening dose by 1/4 and go from there in 4 week increments. I want to get off of my beta blocker to see how it impacts my fasting glucose. Plus, I would be off of all prescriptions. That would be awesome. 

Fasting glucose: Even after eating low carb and doing the undoctored protocol, my fasting glucose is still occasionally high.  Sometimes it will be in the high 90s or low 100s multiple days in a row.  Then it will be around 90 for multiple days in a row.  I haven’t been able to discover what causes it to be high.  A cheat for me would be something like eating 3 squares of 88% dark chocolate instead of my normal 2 squares after dinner.  My A1C has consistently been around 4.9 or 5.0 for 3 years now. My PPG is rarely over 110 and generally in the 90s.  My exercise routine since my cabgx4 in Oct 2016 has mostly been walking and lifting weights with some cycling.   My bike rides have not been too strenuous but I ride for 45 minutes to an hour.  This week, i pushed myself on a bike ride and maxed out my legs. My fasting glucose the next morning was 79 and 86 (I retested since the 79 was so low for me).  I rode hard again the next 2 days and my fasting glucose has been around 90 both days.  I had read that glucose sparing may be a cause of high fasting glucose for those who are fat adapted.  This might make some sense but it is too early to tell. Anyway, i will continue experimenting. 

Cheese: I am Apoe3/4. Earlier this year I gave up cheese and lost about 5-7 pounds. Giving up
cheese was easier than I had anticipated. Soon, I will get another NMR to find out if being cheese free will reduce my small ldl which has been hovering around 800 to 1000.

hopscotch: FWIW, I had bought Lakanto sweetener in the meantime. Once I received the Virtue sweetener and compared them, I preferred the taste of Lakanto. Lakanto is still erythritol, but uses monk fruit instead of stevia.

My very satisfying, surprising n=1 Shirota and other recent probiotics experience
I’ve experimented with many different strains for yogurt making before, but more recently some suspected very pleasantly surprising ones. I’ve been taking Optibac’s BB12 (made into a yogurt) https://www.amazon.com/OptiBac-Probiotics-Bifidobacteria-Fibre-Billion/dp/B07NVSFDWJ L. Casei Shirota, and Bio Gaia’s L. Reuteri for the past couple of weeks. Started eating yogurt made from Shirota because of the suggestion of Dr. Davis during this viral pandemic and because it was very cheap ($5) for a supply lasting a very long time or forever. Tried out BB12 as I was under the suspicion that I MAY need more bifidobacteria based on test results and because I just wanted to try a different strain to see how good of a yogurt it made. 

So far, my focus on tasks has been exceptional (I went down a rabbit hole of trying to find out what computer I should buy because the old one just recently died). I spent maybe 3-4 hours looking at different specs one night and not once did I lose track of what I was doing and felt unusually productive (able to figure out a lot in the time period) and very focused.  I also felt very energized, more calm and centered (not that I really have a problem with that, but this made things even better).  What really struck me differently though was that my cyclical hunger (from gut inflammation or other issues?) has been absent for longer than usual (about a week and a half so far vs the mere week or a few days in the past) and satiety signals have been much stronger. Lastly, periods of dramatic visual clarity that can’t be explained by anything else that I can think of other than the probiotics. I’m sure there’s a connection to at least one of the yogurts I’m eating (Shirota or B. Lactis BB12) for all of these interesting effects. Am I beating back SIBO or some variant of dysbiosis in the colon? Do these strains produce vitamins or unique metabolic products that benefit the host? Could it be because of improved barrier function (which has been shown to be the case in vitro for BB12)? I may never know, but I’m certain that one or both of these new strains provided some outsize, even if transient benefits. Yes I realize this is an anecdote and not purely scientific, but still very interesting

TL;DR

Improved metabolism, focus, productivity, stress resistance, better mood and motivation, dramatically improved visual acuity

THC and CBD
THC
With all of the aches and pains associated with sibo/sifo detox has anyone incorporated THC, strained (sativa/indica) or pure crystal to mitigate the aches and pains associated with sibo/sifo detox?  If yes, please detail.

CBD

CB1 (neuro) and CB2 (immune) receptors are all through our brain, organs, spinal fluid and GI tract.

The GI has predominately CB2 receptors.  CB2 has a role in G protein synthesis, which has a role in DNA replication. 

We also know that CBD is an antagonist that results in inverse agonism, making it neutral, yet delivering a significant anti inflammatory  effect at the CB2 receptor site.

Seems to me both THC and CBD may have a place at the treatment of SIBO and SIFO as long as you can stay away from the brownies.

The elephant in the room?
That term gets a lot of airplay today to the point of ad nauseam. This elephant however is the largest African bull with 12 foot tusks and their aiming for the collective butt of the fools who are oblivious to it. I guess censorship and it’s offspring misinformation is in full force because as we Ud’d and apparently other holders of the knowledge know the dangers of glycation, zonulin, gliadin, intestinal permeability, opioid factors, and many others. The glaring dangers are not getting thru or are just being majorly poo pooed by the masses lining themselves up to be shish kabobs on the tusks of the enormous pachyderm.

L Reuteri first time success!
Finally got around to trying to make L Reuteri.  Used 1 quart Lucerne 1/2&1/2 non organic and without any additives, 10 tabs of Biogaia crushed in the foil with a hammer, 2-3 Tb Inulin (emptied the container looked like 2 Tb in the container but more like 3+ in the bowl.  Mixed the whole mess up to a more or less homogenous consistency then spooned it into the 5 small jars and one one large and added the rest of the 1/2&12.  Capped the jars and put them in the instapot using the souse-vide option at @100f for 36 hours.

At 36 hours I took one out, good taste not sour and a little tangy.  Reset for 4 more hours which made it a bit more sour.  After refrigerating overnight almost all of the whey looks like it has been resorbed into the yogurt. 

Added some allulose and dried orange crystals and it tastes just like it has marmalade in it.

Questions:  Has anyone else noticed the whey decreasing on refrigeration?

Has anyone experimented with varying the amount of inulin?

Mike

I got dumped over my Undoctored lifestyle
Who else can I tell than you guys?
Would like to know if this happens to you too:

I was getting to know a guy (49 year old well spoken psychologist) by sending emails before meeting. He asked me about my cooking and so I told him about my Undoctored lifestyle.. (know that I find it super easy to follow the diet, so I’m always very enthusiastic about it)

Just saw that he emailed me back last night that he can’t imagine being in a relationship with someone who has such ’a strict diet’...

I didn’t see that coming #haha.

Does this happen to you guys? Do people think you are basically ’difficult to live with’?

Thanks guys,
Christel
(Sorry if this is not the place to ask this, but I’m kind of confused)

Magnesium Water Questions
Can’t seem to find MOM without sodium hypochlorite in it, was using Good Sense brand from Amazon, which is now unavailable . Any recommendations for other brands? Kroger’s was mentioned but it does contain sodium hypochlorite. Also , while reading the forum I hear talk of possible undeclared calcium in the ingredients, what?!? That’s really the last thing I want to supplement. Can anyone give me more information on this? 

Toby Lime: Yap... and I am asking only one :))

Not exactly an IT expert, but tech savvy enough
I’m afraid I’m going to cancel this membership, and it’s entirely due to this awful site. I teach tech classes for various software, have run a couple of my own websites over the years, and advise a design team at my place of employment for website and software navigation ease of use. So while I’m not a coder or IT staff per se, I’m also not someone who is afraid of technology. 

And I struggle with this site.

The navigation is horrible. There are links that are not intuitive, there are very few places where it’s obvious how to search the data, and it’s very confusing. This site needs a complete overhaul by someone with an education background who can help the IT person make this more user friendly and intuitive. There’s so much on this site, and so many links to other stuff and rabbit holes you end up down, it’s just not worth the time and effort. Figure out what you want this site to do and be, and stick to that. 

In the mean time, I’m going back to just reading Dr. Davis’ books.




Toby Lime: Is not about navigation....

Ian989: I find the site easy to navigate. Not really sure where you’re running into problems
