Stone-walling low-carb: DAA, AHPRA, and the Diet of Worms.

Richard David Feinman

Our 2015 paper, Low-carbohydrate diets as the first approach in the treatment of diabetes. Review and evidence-base, summarized the clinical experience and the research results of the 26 authors. Meant to be a kind of manifesto on theory and practice, the first version of the manuscript was submitted to a couple of major journals under the title “The 15 Theses on…” harking back to Martin Luther’s 95 Theses. A critique of Church practices, particularly indulgences — for a few bucks, we get you or your loved ones out of purgatory, the Theses were supposed to have been nailed by Luther to the door of a church in Wittenberg.

Digesting protein, hydrogen, my theory and experiments

There’s a lot of health related problems due to stomach acid production and/or weakening of the stomach lining, that in turn effects breakdown of proteins, assimilation of the nutrients from the proteins leading to protein deficiencies, low iron counts, B12 deficiencies, fatigue and stress.  I have done some experiments on myself as all my life I have suffered with this issue, firstly at a young age, I had pain in my stomach digesting foods, pain if I didn’t eat, and even got so bad that I was vomiting.  After many exams, the doctor’s decided that they didn’t know what was going on, but that I probably was producing too much hydrochloric acid in my stomach.  So I was given the conventional treatment of taking antacids.  This was helpful in that it stopped me vomiting, presumably, but it might have been only that every time I felt some form of hunger I ate a biscuit.
