Refrigeration and the death of rot
All throughout human history until recently, if you killed an animal and harvested its organs and meat, or stumbled on a bounty of wild berries or other tree or bush fruit, or managed to squeeze some of the products of mammary glands from a ruminant like a goat, you would ferment the food to keep it from becoming inedible or poisonous. Surely the earliest humans, hungry and desperate at times, learned that many foods not consumed would ferment but remain edible. Fermentation is essentially controlled rotting: the production of lactic acid by bacteria, the production of ethanol by fungi. You could, for instance, store milk ...

Susanne: Goodbye, gluten-free
It’s no exaggeration to say that lives are transformed by the Wheat Belly lifestyle. Look what happened to Susanne after her health was ruined by being gluten-free, reversed by following the Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox. Food manufacturers, out of ignorance or ruthless profiteering, have chosen to replace wheat and gluten with cornstarch, rice flour, tapioca starch, or potato starch—among the few foods that provoke high blood sugar and insulin more than even our favorite grain to bash, wheat. It means that people who are gluten-free and consume such garbage replacement products gain weight in visceral inflamm...

Grains are creating havoc in our brains. IT ’ S NOT YOUR IMAGINATION!
Something’s just not right: lately you are forgetful, stressed, and tired all of the time. Symptoms can vary from mood swings, to lack of concentration, to feeling chronically tired, and anxious. To top it off, no matter how healthy you try to eat, you still aren’t losing weight. So let’s add frustrated to the list. And you’re finding that all of this is affecting your performance at work, as a parent, and even as a partner/spouse. It’s not your imagination.  Grains are behind it all… The grains you consume may have numerous damaging effects on your brain and nervous system, not ju...

Should you switch to A2 dairy?
No doubt: Dairy products have issues. The issues with dairy are not as bad as they are with grains. After all, the consumption of the seeds of grasses was an entirely foreign practice, introduced very late in the human experience—we have spent less than 0.4% of our time on this planet consuming seeds of grasses, despite their dominant dietary role today, thanks to the lobbying of Big Agribusiness, Big Food, and the bungling of the USDA and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Grains are physiologically inappropriate for consumption by Homo sapiens at any time, in any form. Wild, hunting, primitive humans did...

Irreversible
Follow the Wheat Belly lifestyle and literally hundreds of diseases can be reversed: type 2 diabetes reverts to normal within weeks to months (depending on how much weight needs to be lost to restore insulin sensitivity), fatty liver reverses to normal within a few weeks, skin rashes recede, IBS and acid reflux are gone within days in the majority, high triglycerides plummet, even several forms of kidney disease can reverse. But there are health conditions that, once established, can leave effects that can be irreversible even if the initial causative condition reverses. For example, type 2 diabetes can cause kidney d...

Do you get brain fog with probiotics?
We may now have an explanation for the people who experience brain fog with probiotic use. We already know that intolerance to prebiotic fibers within the first 60 minutes of ingestion have small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, SIBO. If you experience excessive gas, bloating, abdominal discomfort, or diarrhea within the first hour of consuming, say, inulin, a raw white potato, or legumes, it is virtually certain that you have SIBO that must be addressed if you desire full recovery of health. Recall that uncorrected SIBO can account for fibromyalgia, IBS, restless leg syndrome, psoriasis, and marked long-term potential for...

Troubleshooting L. reuteri yogurt-making
Making yogurt to amplify counts of the bacteria Lactobacillus reuteri is really very simple. We do this because the ATCC PTA 6475 and DSM 17938 strains of L. reuteri provide a ton of health benefits that includes increased skin/dermal thickness and reduction of skin wrinkles, increased or preserved bone density, reduced appetite, increased muscle, massively accelerated healing, increased libido, and and may even prevent recurrences of small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), given the organism’s potential to colonize the upper gastrointestinal tract. But some people struggle to obtain the thick, delicious yogurt...

While watching the morning news (you know, the tidbits of news aired between direct-to-consumer drug ads), a commercial came on claiming that a new mouthwash kills 99.9% of all bacteria in the mouth, good-looking young people gazing at each other with inviting smiles. Now why would you do that? Why would you wipe clean a bodily orifice that is meant to be teeming with microorganisms? The human gastrointestinal tract, as well as the airway, vagina, skin, and other body parts, are all meant to be colonized with microorganisms.

The quantity of additional changes introduced since are many, including selection of strains enriched in wheat germ agglutinin and phytates for their pest-resistant properties (while increasing human toxicity), gliadin and glutenin for desirable baking characteristics ...

The fecalization of America
I’ve been lately discussing the issue of small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, or SIBO, a situation in which bowel microorganisms (especially of the undesirable Enterobacteriaceae variety such as E. coli and Shigella) ascend up from the colon and colonize the ileum, jejunum, duodenum, and stomach. This has numerous health implications that are only beginning to be appreciated: irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), fibromyalgia, psoriasis and other skin rashes, restless leg syndrome, diverticular disease, heightened body-wide inflammation, increased risk for colon cancer—SIBO is either synonymous with these condition...

Want to arm wrestle?
I have previously discussed (in my Undoctored Blog) how loss of muscle mass is a phenomenon of aging with up to 50% loss of muscle mass from age 25 to 75, especially bad if you yo-yo dieted over the years. We’ve all seen it: Aging involves reduced ability to climb stairs, hike, wrestle with a shovel, hoist heavy grocery bags, eventually leading to need for a cane, walker, wheelchair, or Boy Scout to assist you in crossing the street. Severe muscle loss, sarcopenia, is a close cousin of frailty. Muscle mass has therefore been labeled a biomarker for biological age. We need a gauge of biological age because, unlike tre...

We’ve lately been discussing (some would say obsessing) about the unique benefits of consuming the microorganism Lactobacillus reuteri, specifically the ATCC PTA 6475  and DSM 17938 strains (available from Swedish company, BioGaia, as the Gastrus product).

Raw white potatoes are rich in prebiotic fiber—with 10 to 12 grams per one-half medium (3 1⁄2 inches in diameter) potato—and contain zero sugar. (Sweet potatoes and yams have far less prebiotic fibers). Some people become so accustomed to the taste that they eat them just like an apple, although they are most commonly added to a smoothie. You can also ferment them, which gives them a slightly tangy flavor great for adding to salads. Green bananas and plantains—and I mean green. Not...

Will L. reuteri yogurt EXTEND life?
Among the many powerful and life-changing effects of Lactobacillus reuteri ATCC PTA 6475 yogurt that increases oxytocin levels is a reduction in appetite, the so-called anorexigenic effect. If you experience this effect, you know that you have provoked oxytocin. And it can be quite profound. Food still tastes good, but you have far less interest in it. Follow this reasoning: We know that, in numerous experimental models such as dogs and mice, reduction in calorie intake considerably lengthens life. Unfortunately, the same sorts of experiments have not been conducted in humans for obvious logistical reasons: length of time ...
