Re: Specific gut bacterial strains.

So... my skin problems have cleared 98%. I think it's due to the probiotic (which I'm soon to run out of and won't be able to buy refills!!), but I'll list everything I've been doing (sorry, pretty non-wai). probiotic 8 raw eggyolks Omega 3 capsule (actually, they smell rancid... I should probably c...

How many raw eggs are too many (not for acne)

Hi, So I'm not taking the diet for acne (and am very.... not strict, though I still believe the principals). My question, I'd like to take 12 eggyolks a day, in order to gain weight, and have energy while working (I can work with juice etc.) Is that overdoing it? Will that number of eggyolks cause h...

Re: Specific gut bacterial strains.

Right; so these bacteria would only be an issue for someone 'supplementing' bacteria. OTOH, supplementing sometimes makes sense (if you're not getting something from your diet, or have some imbalance to correct). I've been taking this, https://newrootsherbal.com/product/id/1965 because it has Bifido...

Re: How to make cooked food junkies eat raw egg yolks

Recently updated my eggs a bit; when it's convenient, I'll actually remove the yolk completely from the white, to make sure the whites get totally cooked, when add the yolk in after the whites are finish. At this point you can either "sunny side up" without any uncooked whites, but raw yolk, or scra...

Specific gut bacterial strains.

I've been reading about gut bacteria, for general knowledge but also because I've read that it can be beneficial for psoriosis (Bifidobacterium infantis specifically is said to help with this). But I was surprised to read that some bacteria may contribute to histamine (over) production, and should b...

Re: Bacteria: The Final Frontier?

But is the bacteria in an orange really significant? Will it even survive the stomach acid? I've read that even the bacteria in yogurt won't survive the stomach acid (with the exception of Activia, which adds an extra non-yogurt probiotic). And I'm guessing the kind of bacteria will matter more than...

Re: How to make cooked food junkies eat raw egg yolks

My trick has been cooking eggs for people. I fry it in a pan with olive oil, on the lowest temp, and keep the yolks unbroken (I'll even cut around the yolks, and 'flip' the whites, to make sure the whites cook completely, though slowly). Once the whites have gone completely white (a bit tricky to do...

Re: Shed some ideas for my home remodeling!!!

What about the new Tesla solar panels? They're supposed to be cheaper than regular panels, and can help power you house.

Any other advice I give will only have to do with acoustics (since I'm a sound guy).

Re: Copper in pillows and socks

I searched it up originally because of it's anti-fungal properties (I have dandruff, and the same thing on my eyes, eyebrows, nose, chest, and back). Research seems to point out that the copper is helping people's skin in general.

Re: 3 day fasting triggers immune system regeneration

So the symptoms of accelerated ageing aren't gradual? For example, skin becomes gradually more wrinkly with age, no? Of all the skin cells, some age much faster than others, due to differential exposure to toxins, radiation etc. So, as you age, some of these cells will reach the finish line first, ...

Re: inulin, polydextrose, erythritol

Contrary to the expectation of resistance to both antibiotics, Bacteroides declined with gentamicin in cultures supplemented with inulin, and with ampicillin in cultures supplemented with pectin (although growth with ampicillin had recovered by 30 h). Maybe I'm understanding this wrong. Bacteroides...

Re: inulin, polydextrose, erythritol

Even more off-topic... I thought that only the adaptive immune system can be trained, e.g. 'memory cells' which create specific anti-bodies. Maybe I'm wrong about that (which is why babies exposed to germs would have stronger immune systems). In that case, should I just make a point of exposing myse...

Re: inulin, polydextrose, erythritol

My understanding is that in this test the prebiotics helps prevent the antibiotics from unbalancing gut microbes, yes? Actually, they state that: " antibiotics often negated the beneficial effects of dietary supplementation, in some treatment combinations... ameliorated the effects of antibiotics "...
