Gym – basic rules and dispelling myths.

I get questions about the gym all the time on the forum – I’ll take a few minutes and write an article about it so I have somewhere to refer back to instead of writing back the same thing every time. First thing, the “what to do to look like this guy” question. Looks depend … Read more

Parasites

The topic is quite lively. You can find hundreds of conspiracy theories that almost all diseases are caused by parasitic infections – if you search carefully, even cancer is explained by fungi or some worms. On the other hand you can meet with opinions that it’s all bullshit and nobody in civilized country has any … Read more

The riddle of palmitoleic acid

When analyzing diet and the effects of nutrients on our health, there are often real puzzles. For example, why is it that the human body can make vitamin K2 (as evidenced by its synthesis during pregnancy and nursing), but for some reason does not – and relies on dietary sources?

Comparison of the effectiveness of garlic and amoxicillin

People who are interested in “alternative” methods would probably be interested in solid, scientific knowledge regarding garlic’s antibacterial properties. It is said to be a “natural antibiotic,” but what does that really mean? Can it actually kill bacteria in the body, or just in a test tube? I emphasize that this is a fantasy based … Read more

Black caraway in the treatment of inflammatory diseases

Everyone has probably heard of black cumin oil. But few have had to deal with the seeds. And they are the most important! As it turns out, you can have an excellent and very effective therapy costing literally a few pounds a month. Let’s look at Hashimoto’s disease, where patients were given 2 grams of … Read more
