  1. Dear alternativista,

    First thank you for your articles from good things. I'm so tired now that I can't read them.. you know I'm spending every day 2 hours to think how can I cure my acne. I had severe acne and  I took many antibiotics since I was kid because I was so sick and my parents didn't have a good life style especially they could have one. Now i went to a dermatoligyst and he gave me antibiotic for 1 year. It transformed my acne into moderate acne but I think it damaged other things from my body.

    Now I'm worring about the things that I asked in this topic

    Would you like to help me ?

    Thank you and best regards

  2. So, i just came across this protein. A quick searcg finds quite a few studies. So I googled how to down-regulate zonulin. The article below says " Splenda is suspected as a stimulator of zonulin along with heavy metals, stress, and most likely other triggers not yet discovered. Gluten is one of the many proteins that seems to be involved in inflammation and autoimmune problems when leaked out of the gut. " We've known that food intolerences often develop due to stress. Then it says something about treating patients with supplements to down regulate zonulin, but doesn't name them, Here are more articles. Aparently probiotics are one method. There's this article about zinc Carnosine ( ZnC ), which is an artificially created "nutriceutical". We know zinc benefits acne. Carnosine is taken by body builders & for antiaging for reasons I don't really remember right now. Muscle recovery I think & anti-inflammatory/anit-oxidant. "carnosine is a dipeptide (comprising β‐alanine andl‐histidine) that is naturally present in long‐living cells such as muscle and nerves, where, among other actions, it probably has a role as an antioxidant." I took if for a little while. I also took b-alanine to both produce carnosine & be an anti-histamine. But the researchers only state it would be interesting to examine it's impact on zonulin.
  3. A healthy food I cannot make myself eat is...

    I love kale. The only healthy thing I'm not into that I can think of right now is fermented vegetables like saurkraut, kimchi, etc. Especially kimchi. I do like saurkraut, but only a little bit along with the type of food/meal it's traditionally served with. And i rarely eat those things. I even made a Central American version of saurkraut that I like, but still, I don't eat food/meals that it would go with. (It's traditionally served with Pupusas, which I like but wouldn't eat often. There's no place to get them near me. I made them once,) I don't like olives in food like pasta sauce, in salads, pizza. I don't like that kind of flavor contrasting with the other food Shrimp aren't crunchy.
