D’oh, it’s dopamine!

We’ve made it through the holidays. Hurrah! This post might seem long but it’s kind of all connected. This post will be looking at how we might think a bit differently about aspects of ourselves by becoming more aware of the role of dopamine. You may have noticed from my somewhat nightmarish vision of christmas decorations and my language that I don’t relish the season we’ve now turned our back on. I’m...

LOTS of advice givers!

  As patients of incurable conditions nowadays we’re surrounded by advice from mostly well meaning folk. Today’s post will look at a handful of these suggestions.

Candida Overgrowth Part 2 and/or SIBO?

This is the second part of my candida cleanse collection of posts. What can we do after finding our spit sinks first thing in the morning? (please see the previous post for details on sinking spit here). I’ve entered into this protocol with a bit more vigour than in the past and am now into my 3rd month of a daily diet of pretty much no sugar, booze, yeast and/or vinegar but lots of fresh veg (mostly greens less starch) and no...
