Re: Measuring ketones via beta-hydroxybutyrate or Acetone levels

Julie G wrote: “So, I've definitely experienced the discordance” Given the importance of keeping ketones up to a certain level for us APOe4 carriers, I take it you’re not confident enough in the Biosense to dispense with pinpricks to measure BHBs Julie? Their graph below certainly makes one feel con...

Measuring ketones via beta-hydroxybutyrate or Acetone levels

I recently had a disconcerting experience: On Saturday I fasted all day so that by Sunday morning I’d fasted about 36 hours. Sunday morning, I felt light headed and unwell and found that I had an extremely high Acetone reading on the Biosense breathalyser and high beta-hydroxybutyrate (BHB) and very...

Biosense ACEs vs pinprick BHB's

I'm trying to monitor my diet and, after watching Dr Bredesen's October Town Hall, purchased a Biosense breath meter. I have been checking my BHB levels for some months using pinpricks and ketone test strips and pretty familiar with the results which consistently reflect a combination of how many ho...

Re: Elevating HSP through Infrared light therapy or/and extreme cold (wim Hof orcryotherapy)

What temperature are your saunas Theresa? Do you have any evidence for the relationship of temperature to HSP's? I don't mean to come off as flippant, but our sauna is home made and the temperature is whatever it is when I walk in. When fully warmed up, it does tend to range from in the 120s to 130...

Re: Elevating HSP through Infrared light therapy or/and extreme cold (wim Hof orcryotherapy)

I've used photobiomodulation, previously known as Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), which applies red and near-infrared light for pain and inflammation purposes due to an orthopedic issue. It's warm, but not stressful, never thought I was activating heat shock proteins. I sauna regularly for the purp...

Re: animal protein

Is 3oz of animal protein the same as 3 oz of animal flesh? ie does 3 oz of flesh contain 3 oz of protein? Is all animal flesh, red meat, white meat, fish, shellfish etc the same from this perspective? My heuristic is about 6-8g of protein per oz (~28g) of animal flesh. Meats which have lots of wate...
