Hi Bubba_man,

I noticed you posted this message a few years back and was wondering (A) if you're still using the supplements listed above, and (B) if they are still working for you. Thanks!

Hi Madelyn,

Thank you for saying so!

I have tested one type of resistant starch before, potato starch. It is very healthful, but in the potato form, it gave me a ridiculous amount of gas which precluded me from continuing the test beyond one month.

It seems like some of the precursors to Short Chain Fatty Acids (SCFAs) can promote gas as part of the process, beans would be one example, but fortunately not all of them do. Pistachios do not seem to give me gas and I usually eat 3 little cups of them a day. The cup I use is like the ones that they use at restaurants to serve a side of dressing in. My particular cup holds exactly 4 ounces of water when filled to overflowing. I use it as a scoop to dip in the bag of pistachios and I fill it to a rounded top 3 times a day and that is my snack food. That allows me to get a consistent amount of pistachios each day.

Those two FMT studies that I linked to in the article transformed the way I look at treating health issues because while I always knew that maintaining a healthy gut biome was good for your health, I never truly realized how important it is, until I read those studies! Their results were fantastic by any measure. The sad part is that the US is not really pursuing FMT as it should and it is just speculation on my part, but I suspect it is because FMT would essentially take trillions of dollars away from the pharmaceutical industrial complex. There is so much money at risk for them that I can see where they would go to great lengths to see that FMT never really gets off the ground here. Those two studies came out of Asia, which is leading the world in the research into FMT.

That is why I wrote the article because it may be able to replicate FMT with none of the reported risks of FMT and it would be less expensive than FMT.

Good luck and good health on your journey, Madelyn!

Hello Art,

It would be helpful to know how much B-12, how many pistachios, etc, you are taking each day. There are plenty of us out there who want to experiment right along with you! I've been gut sick for decades.

Thanks,

Clare

Borax for Verrucas

My 10 year old daughter has had verrucas on her feet for at least 2-3 years which just kept spreading.

I tried all the usual over the counter remedies but nothing helped. In fact, they were making her feet sore.

I then read about the benefits of borax here at Earth Clinic, so I decided to try it.

I made my daughter a foot bath with 1/4 cup of borax dissolved in some boiling water in a washing up bowl, then topped up with cold water until it was cool enough to put her feet in it. So the water was warm but not too hot. She soaked her feet for 30-40 minutes. I did this every evening for a week.

After a few days I could already see an improvement. Her feet were no longer sore. The verrucas had stopped spreading and the smaller ones were starting to reduce. After a week I just did a maintenance foot bath once or twice a week. After a month the verrucas have all gone and the holes left are healing.

My daughter is so grateful. Her feet are the best I've seen them in ages.

I have also had a couple of borax foot baths myself as I have had a fungal toenail for over 10 years. Sure enough it's on the mend now.

Thank you Earth Clinic!

Coconut vinegar is better. It's less acid and you can get the same results with half the amount.

Did you ever use castile soap, neem oil aid water in a spray bottle on your body? I just read about that today and am about to try it.

An excellent, must-read article!

Thank you, Art, for writing this up and sharing.

I've just recently been doing some research myself on increasing resistant starches in the diet to promote a healthy microbiome and heal the gut. Green banana flour appears to be very effective at feeding probiotics and increasing their production of SCFAs. I've even found a couple of recipes that utilize green banana flour. Now after reading your article, I'm inspired to take action! Off to go order some green banana flour and finally start taking the melatonin powder that's been sitting on my counter. I do eat pistachios frequently and will continue to do so! Be blessed!

I drink apple cider vinegar w/the mother for my stomach but I certainly will try it on my arm as I have suspicious spots. I just had a dime sized BCC removed at the front base of my neck. I'm concerned after reading that surgery can make more appear? Why would that be?

I have been reading lately that it's sunscreens, not the sun, that causes skin cancers. There are ingredients that are not good for us in almost every product we use it seems. Also in our environment. We need answers to a lot of these questions. Best wishes.

B-6 for Peripheral Neuropathy - Good or Bad?

Peripheral Neuropathy

I've been told by a neurologist that B-6 is good for your nerves and by another Dr. that is very bad for your nerves. Anybody have a final answer-please?

Thank you for saying so, Tessa!

If we can get the SCFAs increased, supplementing melatonin should not even be needed anymore as the SCFAs should build it up in the gut to healthful levels which in turn should also apply its positive effects to the gut and the brain via the gut/brain axis!

Hi Art -

Thank you for such an informative article on the gut microbiome (our second brain, they say).

I'm also very impressed that you are experimenting on yourself and sharing the results!

As you know, I've used your borax remedies with great success and I now take melatonin on a regular basis (still at the low-dose stage, though).

Excellent work, Art.

Cheers,

Tessa

I was premixing mine with distilled water first thing in the morning and sealing in a kerr quart jar. I would build upon the mixture every day I was tolerating it without any side effects, and luckily for me I seem to tolerate it very well, with no side effects, which is great because I'm trying to kill fungus and candida and immobilize heavy metals like mercury and lead. I would sip the mixture 4 different times from morning until early evening. I've managed to work up to 11 drops, but were I to take 3 drops every hour that would take me well beyond the 12 drops I'm @ now. I do however like the idea of taking 3 drops either every hour or every few hours in order to build up to one's daily maximum dose. I'm not too sure if it is potent enough to store the mixture like I've been doing, but is sure as heck convenient for being on the road. Thanks!

I agree with your raw food diet. But I have a question. Do you recommend raw food for people who are in their late fifty. Do you think they can digest? If you can please let me know if you are following any particular diet of raw food. I get bloated when I eat raw food

When I dose my chickens with the horse paste, I first determine how many mg/ml per pound. Let's say the dose is 10 mg/pound--how many pounds are you? at 150 pounds, you would take 1500 mg. I then get a syringe (no needle) and suck up into the syringe the correct amount of mg--the lines on the syringe are marked and you can get syringes in many sizes. BTW, the first time I dosed my chickens, I missed the decimal point and, instead of 0.5 I did 5--way too much. But it didn't bother them. If anything, they felt much better for being wormed and deloused. Another way would be to see by weight /pound and then use a small scale. It's not much--a 1500 pound horse gets the entire tube, so you'll get around a tenth of it.
