So going swimming at the beach helps my psoriasis a lot. I was wondering if bottling the water and bringing it home to wash affected areas with would be a problem. My main fear is that the coldness of the water at the beach keeps bacteria in check... (more)
Very likely that bacteria will grow. If sea water helps your skin, it's likely you're missing some minerals such as magnesium. You can try "magnesium oil" or epsom salt baths and the like as well as a good magnesium supplement, for example.
Endotoxins (aka lipopolysaccharides) are part of the membrane of gram negative bacteria and they have some toxic effects in the body. I've been hearing a new pro-vegan argument that animal products tend to have more endotoxins than plants and this... (more)
I've found a stable symptom free dietary point eating very low fat fish and scallops and white rice with occasional beef. However this diet isn't very tasty. Whenever I introduce more fat, I get fatigue, extra sleep, mood effects and IBS. It's... (more)
What happens if making ice cream or the like with raw milk, heavy cream, etc. Does freezing raw dairy just makes the good bacteria dormant, which awaken when thawed or in the gut (at a warmer temperature)? Could one make homemade frozen yogurt in... (more)
WAPF claims that bacteria do not cause tooth decay: As for claims that xylitol can prevent tooth decay, I can only say, ???Buyer beware!??? Such claims are based on the faulty theory that bacteria cause tooth decay. We know from the... (more)

Can I combine the two? I have high levels of it and probably candida and SIBO too. Would it be better for me if I added biofilm enzymes and VSL#3 probiotics? How about coconut oil, garlic, digestive enzymes, cranberry juice, vitamin c? At what... (more)
Hi, not sure here is the best place to ask but desperate to find help. Have had terrible gas 24/7 for 6 years. Nothing helped lessen it. Not enzymes, not probiotics, not SCD, not Paleo. I always felt the same and then worse as time went... (more)
Alright, I just bought a fermenting pot. My hubby and I would like to make sauerkraut. There is a dairy allergy so we will need to use only salt or vinegar for ours. Now I am a timid person and so scared about doing something wrong and making... (more)
I've seen a couple posts about how mastic gum can irritate sibo... but it's supposed to be antimicrobial so why would it be bad? I'm planning on taking it with interfase plus.
I felt really great for a few months using my current diet which is widely varied foods: moderate carb, low protein, high fat. Lots of potatoes and sweet potatoes, lots and lots of butter, olive oil, tallow, and other animal fats, lots of... (more)
I mean???does it really? And where does it come from? Are we born with p acne bacteria? I don't get how it comes back even after antibiotic use? I mean people use topicals and use antibiotics, and even though some resistance could occur is... (more)
EDITS: I am understanding more and more how Methylation contributes to overall health, and a lot of the health problems I've been having are seemingly linked to it.. What I didn't know was how sulfur in the diet affects this. I eat a lot of... (more)
Hey, So while I don't have SIBO or a serious such bacterial overgrowth, I did have a high count for just one strain of bad bacteria: Enterobacter Cloacae, on my Geneva Diagnostics comprehensive digestive and stool analysis test that I had done... (more)
When you culture milk, the bacteria live off of the lactose, correct? Does that mean that a batch of yogurt / kefir that starts with nonfat milk will end up with more total bacteria than a batch made from the same amount of whole milk? I'm aware... (more)
I am working with that wacko doctor because ... she is the only normal one I found. She told me to take some anti-parasite medication. I did not believe her so I submitted a stool sample and a blood test to two different labs to confirm her crazy... (more)
I no longer have SIBO but I still have some very weird food sensitivities and my gastritis have worsened due to a food slip-up. I am reacting to all foods except protein - if I eat protein only, I feel totally fine. But I cannot live on protein... (more)
Hey Paleo Hacks, I recently got my Metametrix Stool Test Results back and I was hoping someone could help me interpret them. From what I can tell I do not have enough good bacteria and I have Aeromonas Sp. Overgrowth. The high triglycerides and... (more)
So I prefer room temp food over reheated or cold food. How bad is it to leave food out for hours before eating? As a kid I always had food that would sit out (but covered) and never had any problems. For example: at about 7am I made a big meal... (more)
I think most people are way too obsessed with refrigeration. It certainly has it's advantages for long term storage, but I certainly wouldn't worry about leaving leftovers out for a few hours, and then eating them. I do what you are suggesting on... (more)
Okay, when I was on antibiotics and felt FABULOUS and for three weeks after I was eating really really well (except some macadamias). I was eating beef, bone broth and chicken meat. About two and a half weeks after finishing antibiotics my gut... (more)

my girlfriend was recently diagnosed with the helicobacter pylori bacteria and the doctors sound like they want to prescribe a course of antibiotics. Based on my research however, it sounds like many people have this bacteria and show no symptoms,... (more)
I have SIBO. When my doctor and I discussed my diet, he told me that I eat way too much meat. He said that undigested meat will be consumed by my gut bacteria and by eating over 3 oz of meat per meal (I usually have 6-8 oz) I feed the bad bacteria... (more)
Mostly Im just curious. We have TONS of different kinds of friendly bacteria in our gut right? So wouldnt dosing them with only a few different kinds found in the various fermented milk products (kefir, yogurt etc) throw off that balance? Creating... (more)
When encapsulated the bacteria survive otherwise something like 99% are killed off in the stomach. They are only temporary means of repopulating gut flora. It's also possible your body will not recognize them and kill all probiotics entering your... (more)
Yesterday I met yet another wonderful traditional doctor. Contrary to the previous one, he actually knew something. And I would like to emphasize "SOMEthing". So we had a two hour lovely discussion about my symptoms, my test results, my diet and... (more)
Interesting, I thought the theory was exactly the opposite with diets like SCD, GAPS, and anti-Candida - eliminating certain foods to starve pathogenic organisms, creating a less competitive environment for beneficial ones.
