Study shows mySymptom app identifies foods that trigger GI symptoms

I recently came upon a study on Google Scholar looking at the validity of using an application of your phone to identify foods and behaviors that trigger gastrointestinal symptoms in people.  If you want full access to the study, check it out here. The app, called my Symptoms, seemed to be able to identify foods … Continue reading Study shows mySymptom app identifies foods that trigger GI symptoms

New study highlights the importance of circadian rhythms to prevent gallstones

I've mentioned the importance of optimizing circadian rhythms to prevent and reverse chronic disease on a number of occasions on this blog.  In my opinion, the evidence is crystal clear that circadian disruption dramatically increases the risk of multiple chronic diseases, particularly the ones that kill us(CVD, T2D, Cancer, Alzheimer's disease). I think there's also … Continue reading New study highlights the importance of circadian rhythms to prevent gallstones

Time to stop treating SIBO like an infection and more like an injury

During the lightning round in the recent interview I did with Graeme Jones, CEO and clinical physiologist from Nordic Clinics in Stockholm, his response when I said,  "SIBO" was, "Migrating motor complex".  That people with small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, or SIBO, have an impaired migrating motor complex(MMC) isn't exactly revolutionary thinking, we've known this for … Continue reading Time to stop treating SIBO like an infection and more like an injury

Interview with Graeme Jones, CEO and clinical physiologist at Nordic Clinics in Stockholm

Hello folks, today I have quite a treat for you.  I recently sat down with Graeme Jones, clinical physiologist and CEO of Nordic Clinics in Stockholm, Sweden.  Graeme first came on my radar a couple of years ago; he also follows the blog and is a member of the Circadian Retraining Program.  We've had numerous … Continue reading Interview with Graeme Jones, CEO and clinical physiologist at Nordic Clinics in Stockholm

Histamine intolerance and adrenal fatigue lifting with circadian optimization

I have to admit, the first round of the Stop Leaky Gut Challenge worked out a lot better than I thought it would.  It's one thing to have some theories that you believe are correct, it's quite another to see people get results that clearly support those theories.  Optimizing circadian rhythms is by far the … Continue reading Histamine intolerance and adrenal fatigue lifting with circadian optimization

Chronic fatigue syndrome reversed with circadian optimization

Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome(ME/CFS) is a disorder defined by a cluster of symptoms without a known medical cause.  This cluster of symptoms always includes fatigue and exercise intolerance, but may also include digestive abnormalities, sleep problems, and pain.  As of 2015, it was believed that between 836,00-2.5 million people suffer from ME/CFS. Unfortunately, there is … Continue reading Chronic fatigue syndrome reversed with circadian optimization

Why I don’t recommend taking glycine right before bed

Glycine is an amino aid with some pretty interesting effects in the body.  To me, the most interesting effect of glycine is it's potential for lifespan extension through maintaining flux through the methionine cycle.  In fact, it's the principal reason I take glycine. But there are other potential uses for glycine, and one that's gained … Continue reading Why I don’t recommend taking glycine right before bed
