Estrogen directly causes polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)

The worldwide rates of PCOS are skyrocketing, and have more than doubled over the last 10 years. Currently, about 12% of women in child-bearing age living in “developed” countries have PCOS and as a result struggle with infertility, diabetes, CVD, acne, bone issues, and even cancer. The fact that infertility is almost always present in … Read more Estrogen directly causes polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)

Low metabolism, cellular debris may cause Huntington Disease (HD)

Yet another study demonstrating the crucial role of oxidative metabolism (OXPHOS) in a chronic degenerative condition considered largely genetic in origin. Just as importantly, the study corroborates findings from other recent reports/experiments demonstrating that the presence of cellular debris in the blood stream is anything but benign. The presence of such debris is interpreted by … Read more Low metabolism, cellular debris may cause Huntington Disease (HD)

Endotoxin (LPS) can trigger social withdrawal / isolation

If you talk to a doctor about endotoxin (LPS), he/she will most likely give you a blank stare as this topic is very rarely covered in medical schools and the little coverage it gets simply states that endotoxin is never an issue in most people as the liver will quickly deactivate it. Yet, what is … Read more Endotoxin (LPS) can trigger social withdrawal / isolation

Doxycycline akin to Meldonium / Mildronate, may cure triple-negative breast cancer

Once again, the role of excessive fat oxidation is on full display. While mainstream medicine is slowly and reluctantly admitting that cancer may in fact be a metabolic disease, it still views glucose as the primary oncogenic factor in the diet. Yet, little by little, research demonstrates that it is the excessive FAO driving cancer … Read more Doxycycline akin to Meldonium / Mildronate, may cure triple-negative breast cancer

Simple, non-invasive test for adrogenic / estrogenic tone

One of the core issues in modern endocrinology is the relatively weak correlation between serum levels of steroids and the overall activity in the organism associated with a particular steroid. For example, post-menopausal women have very low levels of estradiol yet very high whole-body estrogenicity due to the deficiency of progesterone that menopause induces. Even … Read more Simple, non-invasive test for adrogenic / estrogenic tone

Navel application/absorption rivals intravenous route, other skin routes not far behind

One of the most common questions I get from my readers is “What is the topical absorption rate of your products?” There are a number of studies demonstrating that a solvent mixture of DMSO/ethanol achieves close to 100% absorption no matter where on the skin it is applied. However, we stopped using DMSO/ethanol for most … Read more Navel application/absorption rivals intravenous route, other skin routes not far behind

Topical DHEA has potent anti-aging effects on human skin

I often get emails in regards to possible interventions with anti-aging effects on skin. The study I usually quote is an old one (circa 1967) that did extensive tests on 200+ people with age range of 57-88 years residing in a retirement home, and demonstrated that topical testosterone (1%) cream had the most potent anti-aging … Read more Topical DHEA has potent anti-aging effects on human skin

Simple metabolic change sufficient to turn “normal” cells into “cancer”

Yet another study exposing the fraud/myth that somehow “cancer” cells are different and evil and as such the only hope for curing cancer is killing them before they kill their “host”. The central dogma of oncology is that genetic mutations happen first (and randomly so). Then, once a “cancerous” mutation happens the cell is fundamentally … Read more Simple metabolic change sufficient to turn “normal” cells into “cancer”

Cytokine storm in COVID-19 / sepsis due to “cancer metabolism” (Warburg Effect)

A great study illustrating the crucial effects of metabolism even in “non-metabolic” conditions like COVID-19. We already have evidence that increased PUFA peroxidation is one of the causes behind the (often lethal) cytokine storm in viral diseases, including COVID-19. However, the direct mechanism through which immune cells such as phagocytes “go berserk” and increase release … Read more Cytokine storm in COVID-19 / sepsis due to “cancer metabolism” (Warburg Effect)

Male sexual function does NOT require estrogen

It is a “sacred” mantra in the medical and sports worlds – i.e. “estrogen is crucial for males, without it they won’t have any sex life”. This mantra is also part of the justification given for the currently ongoing COVID-19 clinical trials with males receiving estrogen in the hope it will reduce the lethality of … Read more Male sexual function does NOT require estrogen
