New IdeaLabs Service – Mineral Analysis (hair and/or (toe)nail)

This is part one of a two-part announcement, with the second part hopefully coming out in the next 3-4 weeks. The first part covers mineral analysis (which many of my followers are already familiar with), while the second one will hopefully cover steroid analysis. The novelty factor here is two-fold. First, in addition to the … Read more

Blocking serotonin may treat leukemia and other blood cancers

Yet another cancer is revealed to be metabolic of origin and potentially treatable with cheap and widely available anti-serotonin chemicals (e.g. Benadryl, cyproheptadine, the ergot derivatives, etc). Conversely, the study raises serious questions in regards to whether the explosion in blood cancer rates over the last decade (and especially in the group younger than 20) … Read more

Vitamin D effective in humans for preventing autoimmune diseases

A human study, one of the largest ever conducted, and covering virtually all major autoimmune conditions. Also, the study claims that this is the first intervention trial that looked at effects of vitamin D on developing autoimmune conditions, so the link is causal – i.e. we can now claim that taking vitamin D does prevent … Read more

Muscles starve/waste in the absence of vitamin D

As turns out, yet again, vitamin D is far from being the simple “bone vitamin” as most TV/online commercials would have us believe. It is actually a (seco)steroid and has already been implicated in a host of metabolic and immune process affecting virtually every disease. Recently, I posted a few studies demonstrating that vitamin D … Read more

Oral vitamin D3 may treat steroid-driven hair loss

A very interesting study, which demonstrates that a relatively low (5,000 IU) oral daily dose of vitamin D3 for 6 months, may be able to treat gender-specific (driven by steroids) hair loss. Now, the study participants were all female, with female-pattern hair loss (FPHL), however the findings should be applicable to the other gender as … Read more

Prostate levels of androgens/DHT drastically lower in prostate cancer patients

Yet another study, which raises serious doubts about the so-called “androgen hypothesis” of prostate cancer (PC). The study found that androgen levels, and especially DHT, are drastically (90%+) lower in PC than in people with benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH). In fact, 1/3 of the PC patients included in the study had undetectable DHT levels in … Read more

Estrogen associated with arterial stiffness in women

Blood pressure rises with age, and most people over the age of 50 are on some type of blood pressure controlling medication. It is well-known that blood vessels calcify/stiffen with age and that such stiffness is what leads to increased blood pressure – i.e. the inability of vessels to expand/relax during increased heart activity. This … Read more

Vitamin D may prevent/delay Type I diabetes

Vitamin D seems to be trying to take aspirin’s crown as a universal drug away. The study below is the latest evidence that this remarkable nutrient may have therapeutic effects in conditions that most doctors consider completely unrelated outside of vitamin D’s realm (e.g. calcium absorption). As per the study below, vitamin D joins niacinamide … Read more

Carboxymethylcellulose, ubiquitous food/drug additive, is highly inflammatory

This study is a great reminder that we are surrounded by toxins, and that food/drugs/supplements are one of the major sources of those toxins. I already posted several studies demonstrating that industrial citric acid and vitamin C – additive present in virtually all commercial sort drinks and foods due to their preservative effects – are … Read more

Niacinamide may treat lymphoma

A very interesting study and a “synchronicity” event as well, considering the recent in-vivo experiments I conducted with a combination of vitamin B1 and vitamin B3 (niacinamide) in a mouse xenograft model of human mantle-cell lymphoma. In that experiment of mine, HED of 15mg/kg B1 and 30mg/kg B3 completely stopped the tumor growth. One of … Read more
