When I was doing a bone broth fast, I had about 3-4 cups per day. That wasn't a recommended dose - I just drank half a cup whenever I felt hungry. Unfortunately the "dosage" that you should aim for will vary depending on how strong your broth is... (more)

Codeine does not cause organ damage. Anyone who says so is absolutely wrong. Opiates are water soluble. The dangerous part of any painkiller is the NSAID element and possibly the inactive ingredients. That said, unless you're 'rinsing' your... (more)

This is a question that has been on my mind. Right now, I do a 20/4 fast every day. Would the benefits of fasting increase if I did a 40/8 fast all the time? Would that not promote more hgh in my body or is there a point where negatives creep... (more)

Aside from gluten issues which aren't affected by sprouting, the reason people avoid grains (gut irritants, phytic acid, etc) are not completely removed by sprouting. They are generally reduced, however, so sprouted grains are better than... (more)

By themselves, no. If you're coming from a place where your just starting, the previous diet was a mess and you have leaky gut, eating lots of starchy veggies may inhibit the healing of leaky gut. I'd avoid them for a little bit of time and... (more)

Sounds like you may be in ketosis. If you're low carb trying to lose weight, that's a good thing. Your appetite drops (so much for the "food reward theory") and you may find it easier to eat fewer calories. You get used to the taste and feeling... (more)

Cheese is pretty okay as long as it is whole, natural, and doesn't upset your stomach. The fattier the better with cheese. Carbs are okay in moderation as long as they come from "safe sources" but I'll let you do your own research there and just... (more)
