[Article] Paleo and Red Meat Can Reverse Leaky Gut : Paleo
"The paleo diet can do a great job reversing leaky gut.

Leaky gut used to be a fringe medical condition. Most mainstream doctors didn’t recognize it as a real disease. But now we're started to realize it's implicated in a whole host of diseases. Everything from cancer to autoimmune disorders.

Unfortunately, the beloved veggies are actually a BIG reason why people have leaky gut. But the main culprit is our SAD SAD diet. (I'm referring to the standard american diet of course).

If you have incessant chronic issues, this could be why....

What is Leaky Gut? (It's not just two gross words together)

🥩The small intestine is ~50% of your gut. It is responsible for 90% of food absorption and has the largest mass of immune cells in your entire body [*].

🥩The only barrier protecting what you eat from your bloodstream is just a single layer of mucous, linked together by proteins [*]

🥩When this barrier is broken, it results in leaky gut. The lining of your gut is not HOLDING THE DOOOOORRR.

🥩Toxins like gluten and chemicals like arsenic or BPA to pass into your bloodstream. Rightfully so, your body freaks out.

🥩Your immune system is mobilized to expel the toxins, which creates inflammation throughout your body (not just in the gut).

Symptoms of Leaky Gut / Long Term Consequences

🥩33% of autoimmune disorders are already linked to leaky gut. Type 1 diabetes, for example, is an autoimmune disorder where your immune system attacks your pancreas. [*]

🥩Cancer: The team at Paleomedicina showed that leaky gut may be accompanied by permeability in other membranes too, like the arteries and blood brain barrier [*]

🥩Food sensitivities (this is both a cause and an effect)

🥩Skin issues like acne and eczema

🥩Gut issues like IBS

🥩Alzheimers: When intestinal permeability increases, toxins pass through the bloodstream and to the brain through the vagus nerve. This triggers inflammation, which can cause a breakdown in cognitive function [*]

🥩Anxiety and Depression (also through vagus nerve and BBB permeability)

What Causes Leaky Gut? Two main things:

🥩Inflammation: Diet or stress related

🥩Certain foods directly degrade the gut lining: alcohol, gluten, saponins, nightshades and lectin are all examples

Why Paleo / Carnivore Diet Cures It

🥩It cuts out the main dietary triggers: FODMAPs, Gluten, Poisonous veggies, sugar, alcohol, etc.

🥩It can actually heal the gut

🥩Meat and ketone production reduces inflammation. Very few people are intolerant to meat

🥩Protein protects the intestinal barrier: Among the many amino acids, glutamine and tryptophan have been reported to maintain, promote, and protect intestinal barrier function. Glutamine, one of the nonessential amino acids, is a major energy source for intestinal epithelial cell [*]

🥩Omega 3's help to heal the gut: Omega-3s reverse gut imbalances — dysbiosis — and increase the production of anti inflammatory compounds.

🥩Vitamins D and A improve the cohesion of the intestinal wall: Vitamin D helps improve the strength of the protein junctions between intestinal cells [*]. Vitamin A has also been shown to increase the intestinal defense layer [*]. Eat beef liver!

[Article] How to Heal Leaky Gut Syndrome: Everything You Need to Know About This Digestive Condition : Paleo
"Medications like antibiotics and Accutane (as someone who suffered with acne) can lead to Leaky Gut. I've been eating Paleo for 2 years but my acne was still showing up and giving me trouble.

Went to GP recently and was prescribed Topzole 40mg for just two weeks to heal my gut. Acne gone. Digestion improved. Still continuing with Paleo diet (my way of buying food, cooking and eating has been become so ingrained with the lifestyle) but now I can relax a bit in social occasions (like a piece of cheese, bread or a cookie) without my skin flaring up with stomach pain."

Woman battles cancer with diet; Harvard researchers to study her - Tri-State News, Weather & Sports
"DELAFIELD, WI (WISN/CNN) – A woman said her emphasis on diet helped her in her battle against cancer, and now her approach will be studied by researchers at Harvard University to see if it can help others.

For Kathy Bero, time in the kitchen is an investment in good health.

"It isn’t really about eating healthy," Bero said. "It's about eating specific foods that fight disease."

She ought to know. In 2005, doctors diagnosed Bero with inflammatory breast cancer. Her prognosis for survival was 21 months.

At the time, Bero was 41 years old and the mother of two young girls. She fought the disease with surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. But the cancer fought back.

"Eleven months after my first diagnosis, I was diagnosed with a high-grade tumor in my head and neck," Bero said.

The medication took its toll.

"My kidneys were failing; my liver was failing," Bero said. "My lungs were damaged. My heart was damaged. I told my oncologist that I'm done with that protocol because one way or another, I'm going to die. And I don't want to go that way."

It was then she decided to go off chemotherapy and use a strategy suggested by a friend.

"My friend kept saying you have to learn about anti-angiogenic foods," Bero said.

Anti-angiogenic foods essentially block the creation of blood vessels so cancer can’t easily spread. Examples include organic vegetables such as purple potatoes, carrots and leeks.

"Leeks are at the top of the cancer-fighting list," Bero said.

Also on her list: berries, walnuts, green tea and herbs, especially garlic.

"When a recipe calls for two cloves, I’m probably going to put in six because garlic is a really strong cancer fighter," Bero said.

Bero said her diet - combined with a type of alternative medicine called Reiki, along with meditation and visualization - worked.

"My doctors just kept saying, 'Huh. That is interesting,'" she said.

Today, more than 12 years after her first diagnosis, Bero, who is 54, said she's cancer-free and now works as a cancer coach.

"She's teaching me food is the best form of medicine," said Phil Baugh, one of Bero's clients. Baugh, a 43-year-old father of three, is fighting brain cancer.

"It's stopped growing now, so it's wonderful," Baugh said. "And a huge part of that is food."

Researchers at Harvard University learned of Bero's success and will study her method.

"It's exciting," Bero said. "I'm now validated. I'm no longer the 'crazy cancer patient.' There's a real science that is going to be there."

Bero said Harvard researchers will study people who've had exceptional outcomes.

"They're looking at our genetics and the genetics of the tumor," Bero said. "What the outliers did; their attitude, environment, faith, social support. What they're trying to do is create a database of all these different things and look for the commonalities between these people."

The lead Harvard researcher, Dr. Isaac Kohane, said that because these outcomes are so rare, this particular study will take some time to complete."

UK scientist reveals childhood leukaemia is likely to be preventable, cause linked to reduced exposure to germs in early childhood : science
"His research concludes that the disease is caused through a two-step process of genetic mutation and exposure to infection that means it may be preventable with treatments to stimulate or ‘prime’ the immune system in infancy.

The first step involves a genetic mutation that occurs before birth in the foetus and predisposes children to leukaemia – but only 1 per cent of children born with this genetic change go on to develop the disease.

The second step is also crucial. The disease is triggered later, in childhood, by exposure to one or more common infections, but primarily in children who experienced 'clean' childhoods in the first year of life, without much interaction with other infants or older children."

Eating out could be exposing diners to a higher levels of phthalates
Something we've always known, but is now getting confirmed: It's from the packaging.

"New US research has found those who regularly eat out at restaurants, cafeterias or fast-food outlets could be exposed to a higher level of phthalates -- a group of hormone-disrupting chemicals commonly used in food packaging which can potentially harm health.

Carried out by researchers at Milken Institute School of Public Health at the George Washington University and the University of California, Berkeley, School of Public Health, the study is the first to compare the level of phthalate exposures in those who eat out to those who eat more home-cooked meals.

For the research the team asked 10,253 participants to recall what they had eaten in the previous 24 hours and whether they had dined out or at home, and took urine samples to measure the levels of phthalate break-down products.

They found that those who reported eating out more in restaurants, fast food outlets and cafeterias had phthalate levels that were nearly 35 percent higher than those who reported eating food at home that was mostly purchased at the grocery store.

Although the association between dining out and phthalate exposure was significant for all age groups, it was even higher among adolescents, with teenagers who had dined out showing up to a 55 percent higher level of phthalates compared to those who only ate at home.

The team also found that certain foods, in particular cheeseburgers and sandwiches, were also linked to a 30 percent higher phthalate levels in all age groups, but only if they were purchased in a fast-food outlet, restaurant, or cafeteria.

Many everyday products used in the food industry contain phthalates, including takeaway containers, gloves used in handling food, and food-processing equipment. Previous research has suggested that phthalates can leach from plastic containers or wrapping into food.

With two-thirds of the US population eating food purchased outside the home on a daily basis, the researchers described the findings as "worrisome."

"This study suggests food prepared at home is less likely to contain high levels of phthalates, chemicals linked to fertility problems, pregnancy complications and other health issues," says senior author Ami Zota. "Our findings suggest that dining out may be an important, and previously under-recognized source of exposure to phthalates for the US population."

"Pregnant women, children and teens are more vulnerable to the toxic effects of hormone-disrupting chemicals, so it's important to find ways to limit their exposures," added lead author Julia Varshavsky.

The team now advise cooking more meals at home to reduce exposure to the chemicals. "Preparing food at home may represent a win-win for consumers," adds Zota. "Home-cooked meals can be a good way to reduce sugar, unhealthy fats and salt. And this study suggests it may not have as many harmful phthalates as a restaurant meal.""

Diana Young's comments on this:

"If after a birth
you just WAIT a few minutes
the placenta is detached from the uterus and it begins to shut down : all the blood has run out Of the umbilical cord and into the baby

The umbilical cord becomes white, limp, and sticks to itself inside , so it becomes solid (not a tube anymore)

And then is the time to cut if you are cutting
Cause the next stage is the cord gets stiff
Like rawhide
And after a few days if you do nothing the dry, hard cord gets more fragile and breaks

I don't know why so few doctors know this but maybe because doctors see so few medically unmanaged births"

and the caption on the original post: "Fun fact: What modern obstetrics is calling "delayed" cord clamping is still not the optimal timeline to clamp a newborn's umbilical cord.

Check out the amount of blood still within the cord on the left versus the cord on the right in this image. All of that blood still contained in the cord on the left is biologically intended to be in the newborn's body post-birth if we left things to Mother Nature. Newborns whose cord is left intact after birth until all of the blood is transferred to baby have up to 32% MORE blood volume than newborns who have immediate cord clamping! And that comes without any increased risks despite what some care providers are telling women... and we know that based on a study done all the way back in 1995. Another one came out in 2010 stating that early clamping may interfere with 'nature's first stem cell transplant'. Once more, in 2013, a study published in the Cochrane database further supports the practice of allowing a newborn's umbilical cord to fully transfer all blood before clamping. And yet immediate cord clamping is still common practice in most hospitals today.

Newborns whose cord is left intact after birth have higher levels of iron, a lower risk of anemia, fewer transfusions, and fewer incidence of hemorrhage. Even waiting just two minutes before clamping an umbilical cord will increase that baby's iron reserve by 27 to 47 mg of iron! You guys, that is equivalent to 1 to 2 months of what an infant requires in iron. Does anyone find it interesting how pediatricians recommend supplementing with iron when you have a newborn…? What if we just allowed nature to take it's perfectly planned course and that baby already had the iron s/he needed thus no need for supplementation? Hmmm... "

12 Health Myths We Need to Stop Believing
Every one of these has a nugget of truth, but is so far off the mark as to be dangerous. Slide by slide critiques:

1) Not sure about this one, but Vitamin C megadoses aren't for curing colds, they're for something else that I think I read in either Deep Nutrition or heard on Dr. Gary Null (which could be quakery, considering he's a hardcore vegan)

2) They told the truth, but not the whole truth. They fail to mention that vegetables oils are toxic.

3) "Wiht few exceptions, dietary supplements are generally unnecessary." - true, but it's better to take them than not if you are eating a shit diet. Also, Vitamin D megadoses are absolutely necessary.

4) fine

5) fine

6) "you can't detox" and "you don't need an expensive green juice to do it" - actually you do. You should be blending your vegetables and eating them raw as much as possible. Fiber helps neutralize free radicals from vegetable oil and other sources.

7) "exercise is great for your body and your health, but evidence is mounting that it has little to nothing to do with your ability to lose significant weight and keep it off." - yes, but if you are only worried about weight, you are looking at the wrong thing. Exercise, even if you stay fat, is something you MUST do on a daily basis.

8 - 11) fine

12) there's actually a study out of Norway (I think) that disputes this. It's not a firm yes, but I would still recommend using phones on speaker and not sleeping with them by your head

13) fine

Study: There May Be a Link Between Processed Food and Cancer | Time
What's funny is that I thought I understood food before this, but after reading Dr. Catherine Shanahan's "Deep Nutrition" (not even done with it yet, but after becoming educated in the science), I look at an article like this with a skeptical eye.

I do believe that processed foods cause disease - but they're throwing around terms like "saturated fat" as if that's the problem, when they totally miss PUFA / vegetable oil angle.

I admittedly read quickly over the sections that discussed the chemistry of vegetable oil and why PUFA are so easily mutated, but just knowing that the science exists is huge.

In short, this article is good confirmation bias - and I do believe it, but it's a bit sloppy once you know that PUFAs and sugar are the big culprits. (although this article does state "The poor nutritional quality of ultra-processed foods likely contributes to their negative effects on health.", which couldn't be more true.

How too much fructose may cause liver damage - Diet and health
"FRUCTOSE is the sweetest of the natural sugars. As its name suggests, it is found mainly in fruits. Its job seems to be to appeal to the sweet tooths of the vertebrates these fruit have evolved to be eaten by, the better to scatter their seeds far and wide. Fructose is also, however, often added by manufacturers of food and drink, to sweeten their products and make them appeal to one species of vertebrate in particular, namely Homo sapiens. And that may be a problem, because too much fructose in the diet seems to be associated with liver disease and type 2 diabetes."

For a Better Marriage, Act Like a Single Person - The New York Times
Some great snippets FTA:
"Contrary to some claims, marrying at an older age generally lowers the risk of divorce. It also gives people time to acquire educational and financial assets, as well as develop a broad range of skills — from cooking to household repairs to financial management — that will stand them in good stead for the rest of their lives, including when a partner is unavailable."

"What’s more, single people generally have wider social networks than married couples, who tend to withdraw into their coupledom. On average, unmarried people interact more frequently with friends, neighbors, co-workers and extended family."

"What’s more, single people generally have wider social networks than married couples, who tend to withdraw into their coupledom. On average, unmarried people interact more frequently with friends, neighbors, co-workers and extended family."

"Socializing with friends and family and participating in clubs, political organizations, teams, unions and churches are essential components of what sociologists call social integration. And health researchers report that maintaining high levels of social integration provides as much protection against early mortality as quitting smoking. In fact, having weak social networks is a greater risk factor for dying early than being obese or sedentary."

"A long-term study of more than 6,500 Britons found that men and women who reported having 10 or more friendships at age 45 had significantly higher levels of psychological well-being at age 50, whatever their partnership status, than people with fewer friends. And two recent studies of nearly 280,000 people in almost 100 countries by William Chopik of Michigan State University found that friendships become increasingly vital to well-being at older ages. Among older adults, relationships with friends are a better predictor of good health and happiness than relations with family."

"It’s true that, on average, married people report higher well-being than singles. But mounting research indicates that most of the disadvantages of singles compared with the currently married are accounted for by distress among the previously married, especially those most recently divorced or widowed.

This suggests an intriguing possibility, says the Ohio State University sociologist Kristi Williams, editor of The Journal of Marriage and Family: Many of the problems experienced by divorced and widowed people may result not so much from the end of their marriage as from having relied too much on their spouse and thus failing to maintain social networks and the skills of self-reliance."

There is a lot more, but I'd basically be pasting the whole article.

Lift Weights, Eat More Protein, Especially if You’re Over 40 - The New York Times
"The researchers also looked for the sweet spot for protein intake, which turned out to be about 1.6 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight per day. In practical terms, that would amount to about 130 grams of protein a day for a 175-pound man. (A chicken breast has about 45 grams of protein.)"

"That advice holds especially true for middle-aged and older weight trainers, he says, almost none of whom were getting the ideal amount of protein in these studies and who, presumably in consequence, tended to show much smaller gains in strength and muscle size than younger people."

Frogs and Milk- How to Keep Milk from Spoiling Without Refrigeration
Frogs and Milk- How to Keep Milk from Spoiling Without Refrigeration -

For centuries, before refrigeration, an old Russian practice was to drop a frog into a bucket of milk to keep the milk from spoiling. In modern times, many believed that this was nothing more than an old wives’ tale. But researchers at Moscow State University, led by organic chemist Dr. Albert Lebedev, have shown that there could be some benefit to doing this, though of course in the end you’ll be drinking milk that a frog was in.

Ice boxes first became available to consumers in the early to mid-19th century and, with that, the ice trade became big business. New England and Norway became major purveyors of ice, but anywhere it was cold, ice was a major export. Usually made out of wood with tin or zinc walls and insulation material like sawdust, cork, or straw, ice boxes were popular until they were rendered obsolete by the electrical refrigerator starting around the 1930s.

Jacob Perkins invented the first version of the refrigerator in 1834 when it was discovered that the hazardous compound ammonia, when liquefied, had a cooling effect. But it wasn’t until the late 1920s when Freon was developed by General Motors and DuPont as a “nontoxic” cooling agent, and replaced ammonia, that refrigerators for consumers started to gain traction.

Despite the prevalence of ice in parts of Russia, in certain small rural Russian villages many didn’t have access to ice boxes, so they had to find ways to keep things cold and unspoiled. A practice developed, that continued into the 20th century, as described by Dr. Lebedev from memories from his childhood,

[For] small portions of milk to drink, they used to put [a] frog inside… A small frog over there could prevent the milk from being spoiled.

This rather curious practice was an inspiration for a study and, then, a discovery that may lead to a significant new source of antibiotics. In 2010, scientists from United Arab Emirates University made an announcement that the secretions from certain frogs’ skins have antibacterial and antifungal properties. Using species native to African countries, they studied the compounds coming from the frogs, which are known as antimicrobial peptides and are a string of amino acids.

After isolating these compounds, they began testing them against various bacterial infections. For example, the dreaded “Iraqibacter,” a drug-resistant bacterial infection that has been known to hit wounded soldiers in Iraq could (once again, potentially) be fought with a compound found in the skin of a mink frog that are native to North America. Secretions from a foothill four-legged frog may have the potential to fight the well-known resistant MRSA staph skin infection.

In 2012, scientists from Moscow State University decided to take this a step further by breaking down the compounds and studying the individual peptides. In a study entitled “Composition and Antimicrobial Activity of Skin Peptidome of Russian Brown Frogs” published in the Journal of Proteome Research in November 2012, and using Russian brown frogs (which are edible and considered a delicacy), they extracted secretions by applying electrodes.

What came out was a cocktail of 76 different peptides that all had different properties. Michael Zasloff, now a professor at Georgetown University, but formerly a researcher with the National Institutes of Health said in an interview that, “What is amazing is that no two frogs have the same cocktail. They’re all different, and all beautifully tuned to deal with the microbes that these animals face.”

As promising as the results are so far, many scientists are skeptical of any real benefit coming from them. For instance, Jun O. Liu, a professor of pharmacology at John Hopkins University School of Medicine, stated in reference to other apparent natural occurring “magic antibiotics,” “There are natural substances that work in a lab beautifully but then when you give it to a human it’s totally inactive or it’s toxic.”

While this all may or may not ultimately be medicinally helpful for humans, beginning centuries ago certain Russians seem to have been on to something with putting frogs in milk to delay it spoiling. Although, I think we can all agree that putting a frog in one’s milk takes a back seat to the other age-old way to store milk without refrigeration- making it into delicious cheese.

Bonus Facts:

The world frog population is currently dwindling. For example, the United States amphibian population (which includes frogs, toads, salamanders, and newts) has been declining by 3.7 percent per year of late, according to a U.S. Geological Survey released in May 2013. While the study didn’t give firm answers to why this happening, the scientists in the report speculated that possible factors could include climate change, disease, and drought.

“Freon” is the trade name used for a group of chemicals known as chlorofluorocarbons, or CFCs. Refrigerators and air conditioners were developed to use these chemicals and were sold as consumer products for the home. Today, of course, it has since been discovered that there are irrefutable links to CFCs, Freon, and the depletion of the Ozone layer.

A friend-centric lifehack that can make you so much happier
"A 2010 meta-analysis reviewed 148 studies involving over 300,000 participants and concluded that having weak social ties was as harmful to health as being an alcoholic and twice as harmful as obesity. ... 'A lack of social relationships was equivalent to smoking up to 15 cigarettes a day.' ...
A more recent study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, found a biological response to loneliness that triggers disease. According to the researchers, social isolation sets off a cellular chain reaction that increases inflammation and suppresses the body’s immune response." .....................

To solve problems caused by sitting, learn to squat — Quartzy
"Avni Trivedi, a doula and osteopath based in London (disclosure: I have visited her in the past for my own sitting-induced aches) says the same is true of squatting as a birthing position, which is still prominent in many developing parts of the world and is increasingly advocated by holistic birthing movements in the West.

“In a squatting birthing position, the muscles relax and you’re allowing the sacrum to have free movement so the baby can push down, with gravity playing a role too,” Trivedi says. “But the perception that this position was primitive is why women went from this active position to being on the bed, where they are less embodied and have less agency in the birthing process.”"

"1) Foot mobility work

Spending years in narrow, supportive shoes creates a stiff and weak foot. This exercise helps restore mobility in the joints of the feet and wake up the muscles that often become tight and unable to function properly.

Dosage: 1 minute going from heel to toe, 1 minute from side to side with the heel on the ground as a pivot point. Apply enough pressure that it creates mild discomfort (like a deep massage). 2 minutes per foot done several times daily will give powerful results when done consistently.

2) Hip mobility work

Spending many hours a day sitting in a chair tightens up the muscles at the front of your hip and steals away your ability to use your glutes (also causing low back pain and inability to generate torque at the hip joint which creates flat feet)

To offset the sitting position this exercise should be done for 1 minute per hip for each hour you sit during the day. 8 hours of sitting (car, meetings, at work) means 8 minutes of this mobilization per hip just to offset those 8 hours.


3) Upper glute reset

The upper glute is an important muscle for generating torque and stability at the hip joint and in a lot of people its locked up and can't do its job. Your hip creates the arch downstream at the foot and without this muscles online its hard to restore your arch.

Spend 2 minutes per side working on this daily until its hard to find tender spots. Once you get to that point you can start working on activating and strengthening the muscle in patterns that help restore a strong, stable arch at the foot.

House-cleaning, walking to work, staves off death: study
"One in 12 global deaths over a five-year period can be prevented through 30 minutes of physical activity -- which can include house-cleaning or walking to work -- five days a week, researchers said Friday.

"Being highly active (750 minutes a week) is associated with an even greater reduction," according to a study published in The Lancet medical journal.

The study, which tracked 130,000 people in 17 countries, "confirms on a global scale that physical activity is associated with a lower risk of mortality and cardiovascular disease," the authors said in a press statement."
