I like you have psoriasis and you're right, psoriasis is a really good way to see how things are working depending on how my psoriasis responds to any vitamin or treatment that I do. I recently have been drinking 1 tsp of borax daily. It has made me feel awesome. It is helping me control my candida and also raise testosterone, and help the parathyroid control calcium production. But, it has made my psoriasis really bad. It has spread all of my scalp and has gotten worse in all the areas that I have psoriasis. Do know of any reason why this is? It is making me feel really good but it made my psoriasis quite a bit worse. Should I discontinue use? Thank you

Pistachios Contain and Increase Melatonin in Gut
Posted by HisJewel (New York) on 08/26/2021

Greetings EC,

If you love pistachio nuts and want to try them for the melatonin experience as par Art's suggestion, check this out.

Here is a recent article about melatonin and pistachios. As I read a few articles from different sites about melatonin and pistachios, it boils down to what they are trying to sell supplements or pistachios. My suggestion is if you like pistachios try them, but take a tip from this Well+Good article.

Here is an excerpt from Well+Good entitled: Pistachios are packed with melatonin…

“If you're trying to test out pistachios for sleep, eat a serving—1/4 cup—an hour before bed, ” suggests Largeman-Roth. “Do this each night for two weeks, and keep a sleep journal to track how it makes you feel, and whether you notice any difference in your ability to fall or stay asleep at night.” As a bonus, you'll also reap the other benefits of pistachios, which contain six grams of protein, three grams of fiber, and a variety of healthy nutrients, like vitamin B6, copper, and manganese in every serving.

Also here is a pubmed about melatonin and pistachios:

I too, was going to have a procedure to remove a tooth due to infection in the dental office and had high blood pressure. My dentist yelled at me and told me to take a pill. I feel she was more upset about losing a sale than my well being. She let me leave without antibiotics. I am excited to try the kefir and sourkraut. Thank you for the info!

Make your own fermented foods, its not hard nor does it take a lot of time and its cheaper and better for you. Use organic ingredients. I've made sauerkraut, kefir, kombucha, pickles.. Youtube and health conscious sites have tutorials etc

I just ordered the book. It's fascinating and haven't finished it yet - wondering if she will promote fermented foods but it's a great read and gives you insight into why we are sick.

Art, what is your opinion on digestive enzymes? I saw (a you tuber's) demonstration using digestive enzymes which turn oat meal into almost liquid. This particular brand has ionic mineral blend in addition other enzymes. Is that an indication of good digestive enzymes?

I am interested in this as well.

I understand sodium butyrate is best; could you give some links to find a good product? I see mostly calcium butyrate.

Also, will butyrate help with HPylori?

Posted by Betty (CA) on 12/30/2021

Right now I am taking Butyrate by Healus brand. It is a complete biotic.

I have also taken another one called trybutyrate.

Thank you very much for that, Art. I will be buying those recommendations for sure.

Art, since I last messaged it seems the problem is infact with the liver. I would think obviously a chemo toxicity problem because the fluid build is from Ascites. I am really shocked as she was doing so well. Now she is not in a good place, she's not eating or drinking enough, quite frankly I want her to rethink the treatment and do everything naturally or with repurposed drugs such as febadazonel, ldn etc.

I really thought I would have a game plan or the correct words to make her see sense being it did not work originally for a bump on the breast. I myself have adhd and lately my once cognitive brain has since left me and I feel totally inadequate to the person I was. She says she's confused by it all and needs to talk it through with someone other than me. Would you know if there Is there a place or somebody with a similar story who has had a ‘Miraculous Remission' as they say that maybe able to advise her?

In reply to my last post I did a quick search for niacin and breast cancer. It might not be a good idea to use niacin.

All my research showed so many cancers is why I mentioned it. But might not include breast cancer.

Probiotic Foods
Posted by Gracie (Nottingham) on 07/30/2021

Hi, I've just come across a recipe for pickling whole cloves of garlic in apple cider vinegar, and wondered whether the resultant garlic would be classed as probiotic, or just pickled garlic.

The recipe says to take whole bulbs of garlic with the skin still on, place them in jars, and cover with apple cider vinegar, and leave for as long as possible.

Apple cider vinegar is fermented.
