If you don't have bacteria doing their work, your whole digestive process grinds to a halt. One of my friends, who is always on antibiotics for his sinuses, says he poops twice a week, and he eats more than I do. Shocking.

I don't need an alarm because at 5:45 AM every day, I gotta go, and then again half an hour later. It wasn't like this before I got into the Mg/probiotics/sugar-free lifestyle.

My cat rolls in the dirt every day, then licks himself clean. Maybe we should do that.

Perhaps you should feed your cat better...

pm_newbie....Iodine

I see ag just posted. This Dr is an interesting cat. I liked his presentation style. Was on the train for four hours today. Fortunately the train had wifi, so I was able to do a fair amount of research/reading on iodine. I will be stopping by the health food/ organic store tomorrow to pick some up. Mrs Silver66 is quite interested as she has had thyroid issues for about 7 years.

I will keep it appraised.

I would be interested in what product/foods people are using to get more good bacteria into their guts.

Got given this for Christmas by the Mrs Silver66(I asked for it),heard about it on Howard Stern radio of all places.

Thanks for the forum. I woke up about six years ago, and after filling up a whole I had been digging for about 15, I have just started taking this "*hit" seriously. Pun intended. Happy 2014 its a mindset.

Our naturopath told me this is the healthiest pooping position. I usually just slide over the step stool my kids use when they brush their teeth. LMAO. It's funny but it works!

Re: gut bacteria- probiotics, kefir, fermented vegetables and dairy, raw milk, bone broth (see gaps diet about bone broth)

We also had a doctor recommend a "fecal transplant" We didn't do it, but we considered it based on the amazing results people had reported.

ag---transplant

Years ago I became friends with the owner of the cleaning company that cleaned our business. He was much older than me but we really hit it off. He suffered from Crohns and colitis, and he was quite amazing in leading a fairly normal life with a chronic illness. He passed away 3 years ago. Due to our friendship and watching him manage that disease, whenever I see an article about crohns and colitis is read it and wonder if it would have helped him. I have followed with great interest the fecal transplant that is having brilliant success in curing crohns and colitis from what I can read about.It does not seem to get much promotion by MSM, I guess it would put to many specialists out of work. I had not heard of it being suggest for non crohns related reasons as you posted. That is interesting

From my reading the media makes it sound gross, but is a very simple and INEXPENSIVE procedure that has the potential to be a life changer for many people.

I have a feeling that this forum could be up there with DOTS in views.

Dangers of Soy

Are you convinced yet about the dangers of soy? Many aren’t. “Is soy bad for you? …Really?” I hear the question so often I want to scream.

After decades of hearing marketing spin about how soy is a wonder food, a protein-rich legume able to rescue us from our dependence on meat, I suppose it’s understandable why so many people have yet to understand fully the dangers of soy. Really, you’re not going to get the full story unless you research it on your own. And why would you, when soy is “universally” touted as a health food?

Well, it isn’t.

nice thread

Nice job ag1969 yes

A thread like this is long overdue and I'm sure it'll prove to be very popular.

An epic lack of foresight, accuracy and rationale... https://www.tfmetalsreport.com/comment/170246#comment-170246

Hmm

Nutrition is one of those areas where there's an expert for every possible diet imaginable. The suggestions are often contradictory.

I think the most important point I can make is that one size does not fit all. While some things are likely true for all, others fit the saying that "one man's meat is another man's poison". This is to be expected due to our genetic differences.

There has been much condemnation of soy but soy milk is heavily consumed in my (largely Asian) community. Many Asian adults cannot absorb milk sugar so it's fermented by gut bacteria making acid and gas producing bloating, discomfort and diarrhoea making it more dangerous than soy milk.

Time to make some changes

Just finished getting up to date on this thread, thank you AG for starting it. I have been thinking for quite some time I need to make some positive changes in my diet. 

I have had chronic constipation for the last 10 years. I usually avoid doctors like the plague, but went ahead and had a colonoscopy done a few years ago, dumb ass Dr. told me my intestines look like that of a 90 year old (I'm 57). When I asked him what I should do, he said "too late now the damage is already done". (I really hate western medicine doctors!) I have been aware that my poor diet has played a major role in this, but changes have been slow and inconsistent. About 7 years ago I discovered sugar free psyllium fiber and take it religiously to stay regular. It works like a charm but I am aware this is like putting a band aid on the problem. 

I stopped (or drastically cut down) on eating fried foods over 7 years ago, that helped a lot. Over the last 4 years I have added more vegetables and dinner salads to my diet, that has also helped. But I'm afraid I am one of those sugar addicts that pm newbie was talking about. I like my coffee black as the night in a moonless sky, and can make it through the day without sweets, but sugar cravings usually kick in after dinner. 

After reading some of the comments it looks like I need some good bacteria in my stomach along with more raw foods, and a good gluten free (and sugar free) diet. I think the biggest hurdle for me is going to be quitting the sweets. 

I've never really considered myself to be either healthy or unhealthy, just kind of middle of the road. I'm finding that at my age this kind of thinking is no longer going to work for me. I hope with the help of the good people on this thread my transition to healthier eating will become just a bit easier.

Thank you all!

Thank you DPH

That means a lot to me coming from you!yes

Silverivalist- It sounds to me like you have a candida problem or a fungal problem. Please don't feel gross, I've been there. The good news is that your body wants to heal if you will just let it. The GAPS diet will save your life. And the upside is you will know what it feels like to be truly healthy.

You need to eliminate all sugars, grains and starches from your diet. It's a bitch but it is not forever. Please keep coming here, you will see a lot of info in the coming days about stuff that can really help you. And if it makes you feel any better, you are not addicted to sugar, your candida is just hungry. You need a diet that starves it out of you.

All the best to you.

Steve W

I would agree with most of what you say there. The right diet for any person is the one that makes them poop. I am no expert on any diet, nor am I a doctor, but clearly and based on my experience, most doctors have no idea what they are talking about. Most Americans go to the doctor and most of them are sick. To me, what is way worse than soy is GMO soy, laced with round up. If that is what the people in your community are consuming, there is no way on earth you can convince me that your genetic difference makes GMO soy healthy for you. Just because you can't digest milk sugar, does not mean that substituting soy is healthy, it only means you should not drink milk sugars. 

I am in no way, shape, or form affiliated with any profit from the gaps diet, it is just the best chance I have seen at resetting your system, and it saved my family. This forum is not to promote the GAPS diet, it is for all Turdites to share what they have learned or health problems they have solved and how they did it, because here in America, our healthcare system is failing and our people are sick.

I think it is time we explore why so many people have so many problems and offer some research and real life experience. As always, Do your own due diligence.

The stuff you try doesn't always work for you, but it is just real food. I say it is better than trying some poison made in a big pharma lab that has a known side effect like "oily gas discharge."

And your comment raises a good point. If you eat a food that makes you sick, you would normally not eat it again, right? Well here in America, we keep eating that food and then take pills that allow us to live with the sickness.

I loved the iodine video because it makes so much sense. I left it thinking, man, it only makes sense, if your goal is good health, to take care of your thyroid. It regulates everything in your body! Why didn't I think of that?

I don't know everything Steve W, but a lot of people here in Turdville know a little, and we can all learn from each other. Thank you very much for your comment.

Regarding MMS

Personal Experience, after seeing Orange post a lot about MMS here at TFMR, I thought I would tell of my personal experience. Again I am no doctor, but I am tuned in to my gut bacteria and have reached a stage where I know pretty well if my gut is functioning properly. I was interested in the MMS because of a male growing problem that has been creeping up on me. I have no idea whether or not MMS does what it claims, but I do know it killed off my gut bacteria, something I am just starting to recover from. I read and watched the videos on the science behind it. Within three days of using this product, I stopped pooping normally. If it has helped someone you know, great! But it is not for me. I think the claim that it leaves good cells alone and only attacks bad ones is overstated.

I still have it, I use it now to clean out bottles that I can't get the kitchen sponge into, but i will never put that in my body again. I am just now getting my gut bacteria back to where it needs to be after weeks of "irregularity."

Your gut serves as your second brain

Story at-a-glance

  • Your gut serves as your second brain, and even produces more serotonin—known to have a beneficial influence on your mood—than your brain does. It is also home to countless bacteria, both good and bad. These bacteria outnumber the cells in your body by at least 10 to one, and maintaining the ideal balance of good and bad bacteria forms the foundation for good health—physical, mental and emotional.
  • Most disease originates in your digestive system. This includes both physical and mental disease. Once you heal and seal your gut lining, and make your digestive system work properly again, disease symptoms will typically resolve
  • The GAPS protocol is designed to restore the integrity of your gut lining by providing your body with the necessary building blocks needed for healthy enterocyte reproduction, and restoring balance to your gut flora. Basic dietary details are included

Riddle me this.

Why does every physician take the Hippocratic Oath but none follow his advice? I think that is where the word hypocrasy came from

I purchased MMS but I have

I purchased MMS but I have not taken it yet. Because I want to be able to walk out of the house without doing it in my pants.

I've been using Oxy flush. It's not as potent. Carrot essential oil, Tea tree oil, lavendar oil taken internally will kill them.

New Directions Essential Oil's is a good distributor. Only buy organic. There are smaller vendors that are good also but a bit more expensive. I buy bulk essential oils for other uses. YOU MUST RESEARCH

GL

Thanks for stopping by. I hear ya. I don't think the doctors are malicious, I just think that they are trained to be the way they are. I can only imagine that this is the case because they all seem to sing from the same hymn book. I swear they now think in terms of "listen to the symptoms and then write a scrip for those symptoms".

I can tell you after the experience with my son, how frustrating it is to wait 6 months to see a "specialist" only to find out within 60 seconds that I know more than she does and am wasting my time. You need a doctor that speaks your language, a doctor that will recommend changing your diet what foods will help you before giving you a pill.

In finishing GL, my Dad used to always say to me whenever I was going to a doctor, "Ag1969, always remember that 50% of the doctors out there graduated in the bottom half of their class."

My Father, bless his soul, died from the treatment of his brain cancer 5 years ago.

They aren't malicious as a

They aren't malicious as a whole. But they are caught in the matrix.

This is how the system works. Pharmaceutical companies begin indocrinating students from day one. All the studies in all the journals are done and paid by PHARMA. The textbooks are written by Pharma paid physicians. Physicians are detailed by salesman who have no medical training other than an intensive sales training that lasts a month. Physicians do not have time to do their own research. They are not trained in nutrition. And not even exposed to nutritional medicine. 

Of course, western medicine is not all bad and not all physicians are ignorant. Western medicine can attach severed limbs but if you are tired, they have no answers. Not true with Traditional Chinese Medicine whose sophisticated form of diagnosis can tell you what imbalances exist in the body that make you tired.

Thanks AM

I just think it is great to see all of the interest on this subject. I get the feeling I am going to learn a lot here, and I hope everyone else does too.

We have had good luck using xylitol as a sugar substitute. Just make sure you research it and get the xylitol made from trees and not corn. However, honey is the best sweetener IMHO. I will probably cover, at some point, what is happening to our bees. Suffice it to say that I think colony collapse and the declining bee populations is a national emergency and a serious threat to our food supply.

I will be watching the sugar video today. Thanks again!
