The thing that seems to be helping me is Lipoic Acid. I take the stabilized form of R-Lipoic Acid. About 400 mg per day. It has lowered my liver enzymes and my blood sugar is completely normal now. The only issue at this point are high-cortisol-like symptoms and low testosterone. For the low-T, I am trying painting iodine on the scrotum. It does seem to make a difference. Certainly a difference above oral iodine. I need to try a few forms of it and see what happens. For the hump, the fat face and the hard gut, I was thinking serine phosphate or Seriphos.
Matt, if you are reading this, I remember that you said that you went through a short period of having a buffalo hump and then it went away. Any insights?November 25, 2013 at 1:29 pm in reply to: Very Low Testosterone #13840
I generally do not exercise much due to low energy and my tendancy to crash very easily. Like I said, I do not think that this is merely exercising or lifestyle changes.
Low energy, low sex drive, weight gain only around the mid-section and face, high insulin levels, high blood sugar.September 29, 2013 at 10:35 pm in reply to: Gallbladder/gallstones/liver pain, doomed to surgery? #12918
Thank you so much for your website. I have had liver issues for many years and have found some success with beet juice and choline. I will try barberry and/or Oregon Grape Root and report back.September 11, 2013 at 11:33 pm in reply to: Anybody into "alternative" tooth paste / powders / etc? #12571
As someone who has always had great teeth until I discovered sugar a year an a half ago at 32, I am almost at the point of giving up sugar just because my teeth have become such a mess. I currently use tooth powder and it cleans well, but it is certainly not improving tooth pain or cavities. The thing that I have found that works the best for cleaning is bar soap. It tastes terrible, but I have examples of two old people that died with a full mouth of teeth who used it. Gerard Judd is the one that is probably being referred to in previous posts. I believe that he died several years ago and claimed to have perfect teeth. He self-published a book called Perfect Teeth From Birth to Death and advocated bar soap and derided glycerin and acids. My brother-in-laws grandfather died in his mid-80s with perfect teeth and he used bar soap his entire life. Apparently the funeral director said that he was the old person that age that he had ever seen with perfect teeth.
I believe that everyone here is against consuming fluorine compounds in any amounts, but the debate is to whether topical fluoride is ok. Going back to Judd, who had a Ph.D in chemistry, he said that topical fluorine will attract calcium due to its chemical instability, but that it will cause a lower quality of bone. I remember another anti-fluoride activist, maybe Paul Connett or Hal Huggens, who said that it decreases the rate of cavities slightly, but the rate of tooth breakage increases.
I should also add that Dr. Judd said that sugar had little to no effect on cavities. Maybe I should try his protocol more strictly:

I would get tests to see if it is definitely the liver. I also experienced liver pain and long before I ever touched sugar. I actually ate similar to what you describe for dinner without any sugar for many years and did not gain a pound. I saw photos of myself from five years ago recently and I could not believe how underweight I was. Once I began the sugar, my liver just blew up. I think that there might be a small minority of people who have been through a significant degree of liver trauma (maybe from a pharmaceutical drug) that react this way. I should also say that I rarely have ever drunk alcohol in any period of my life so I do not think that my situation is due to that. In regards to temperature, mine has always been very high (about 99.3/37.39 tends to be my average) even though my face looks like the before picture of one of those thyroid patients from the Hertoghe studies shown in Dr. Mark Starr’s book.
Matt, you might be right about the fat being the body healing itself. The only issue is that I have been like this for a year and a quarter now and it is difficult to convince those around me who see the very visible change that I am healing myself.

I should also add that sugar has drastically improved stress resistance for me and that my type of weight gain is only on the face and the belly. I have gained no weight on the legs, arms, back or neck.
My teeth feel terrible for the second time in my life. The first was during my early 20s when I tried veganism for 6 months and acquired my only cavity. I have even added small amounts if vitamin K2 with little success.
I have tried taking small amounts of stabilized lipoic acid and methylselenocystine, which I believe caused me to lose about eight pounds. My first weight loss in a long time. I have been off of it for the last few days and I have gone up a few pounds. I think that these might be very important.
I work with many people who are massive soda drinkers and they tend to fall into two categories. There is one group who are the best-aged people that I know, similar to Don Gorske who drinks over a gallon of Coke per day, and there are others who are completely on the other end of the scale. Overweight and do not look good in every respect. For whatever reason, I fall into the later category.
