anonamom,

Do you think going keto would help psoriasis?I was listening to Jordan Peterson last night, who is now only eating meat, and he saud patches of psoriasis he had had cleared up.

Does that make sense?

D

Anonamom:
We are listening to you.
I have cut back on my carb intake and do other helpful suggestions that you have stated on this blog.
You are a godsend and I appreciate your posts.

D

Is it still helpful to give up meat and eat mainly chicken and fish?

When all the dust clears, the media propaganda efforts to cover up both the coup attempt on Trump, and the Spygate scandal targeting his campaign, will be remembered by history as scandals as enormous as the crimes themselves.

Miss M, cutting back on carbs did help my skin. Not dry in winter anymore. I will add much less arthritis pain and better cholesterol numbers too.

The Infamous Ignatz

--The heavy rains also triggered landslides and mud slides on California’s steep hillsides. For instance, in Knights Ferry and Mokelumne Hill, nearly every building was torn from its foundation and carried off by thundering landslides, and a major landslide also occurred at the town of Volcano in the Sierra foothills, killing seven people.--

Moke Hill I can see. It's about ten miles south of here on the edge of the Mokelumne River canyon. Volcano is about 3 miles from here and where I lived until I was one and we moved and lived again from the mid 80s til I married Mrs Ig. It's in a bowl shaped valley and I could see a landslide. At one time had about 5,000 people. Now has approximately 100.
But Knight's Ferry is almost in the central valley and is on one of my favorite driving routes. I'll have to try and envision a landslide there next time I go through.

The only mistake I saw was naming Nevada City which got 9 feet of rain in 2 months as a city in Nevada.
It's a small town north of DocJ in the CA Sierra Nevada and is in Nevada County CA. Pretty wet place and much more likely to get that much rain than any part of the state of Nevada.

We had an atmospheric river event in February 1986. But it only lasted about a week wherein it dumped around 18 inches around here. Can't imagine that continuing for a month or two.
I bet two months of that would do a trillion dollars of damage if it happened now.

Dave (in MA)

Thanks, "D".


Bongino is a lot more optimistic than I am.

I love pasta and other carbs. My people loved pasta and other carbs, and they weren't particularly fat. I'm not particularly fat either, so I think I'll just keep on keeping on.

My wife is considering Keto, but I think she's nuts. She's 118 and wants to lose 5 lbs.

Grifters gotta grift:

THEY’RE BACK! HOUSE DEMS PLANNING EARMARK RESTORATION: You knew they would as soon as they got back in power. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) and House Appropriations Committee Chairman Nita Lowey (D-NY) think bringing back “directed congressional spending” is just a dandy idea. They must have some new bridges to nowhere to fund.

MissMarple2

Extraneus,

I am pretty much the same weight I was in high school. I still wear a size 12, which for my build is about right.

What I am interested in is arthritis and psoriasis. My dad had terrible psoriasis beginning when he was about 50. The last 2 years I have gotten patches on my shins which keep me from wearing shorts in public and itch like hell.

When I heard Jordan Peterson say that I certainly paid attention. It won't kill me to go keto for a couple of months to see if it works.

The Infamous Ignatz

Porch,
Just read that lynching law. It is a requisite of all parts of the law for Bodily harm to occur, so it isn't talking about speech of any kind.
It does mention using a phone, the internet or the mail [and firearms etc] in the process of committing or in furtherance of committing that bodily harm. But absent that bodily harm, no "lynching".

Anonamom, you are my hero, for all the wisdom you impart here. You are a rarity among doctors, as most seem to stick to the conventional wisdom (low fat, whole grains, blah-blah). I found practically the one doctor in all of NYC who is in sync with me, but at the rate doctors have been disappearing here, I'm not hopeful I'll have him for long. I went through about four doctors in five years who either retired or otherwise closed/moved their practice.

The Infamous Ignatz

--I though bodily harm was already illegal.--

Now it's extra illegal.
If you cause "bodily harm" you can be imprisoned for "any term of years or for life"; "bodily harm" being a rather elastic term.
And that can occur if one causes such harm due to race, ethnicity, blah, blah, gender, orientation, disability.
The one thing it can't be employed for appears to be causing bodily harm because of someone's political views.
Convenient that.

The Infamous Ignatz

I've found fasting to be a lot easier to maintain than eating giant mounds of fat constantly.

ANONAMOM, I don't have arthritis. My mother does, My joints were getting stiffer and painful and my c-reactive tests keep showing inflammation is mounting. We could find no other reason for this so I decided to try keto. I am less stiff and the patch of psoriasis on my left elbow vanished entirely after 2 weeks on keto.

anonamom

clarice, you may not have xray findings of pathological changes in joints (that's good!) or blood evidence of rheumatoid or psoriatic arthritis, but your symptoms--stiffness and pain--are what defines arthritis--inflammation of the joints is what causes the stiffness and the pain.

You aren't making it up---something is going on. Which improves with a low inflammation diet. Yay!!
Who tells you it's not arthritis? What do they want to call your joint inflammation symptoms, appendicitis? Pancreatitis?
Because the conventional medical world refers to that classic symptom complex affecting joints as arthritis.

anonamom--the worst stiffness I had was after an MrI and review by a specialist turned out to be spinal stenosis which gyrotonics and pilates seem to have managed nicely. I only have one swollen joint--pinky on my right hand (yes the same side as the psoriasis).I'm not sure what the cause is or whether that was the result of some trauma I'd forgotten about. It's not particularly painful--just stiff, especially some mornings..No other indicia of arthritis except for the increased readings of c-r inflammation.I don't want to take any chances. (My mother's is not psoriasis related--she has osteoarthritis which at almost 100 y.o. has become quite crippling. She has therapy 3 times a week to maintain her ability to walk short distances.

The discussion continued with Logan trashing news reports based on single, anonymous government sources, calling it an abandonment of journalistic standards.

“That’s not journalism, that’s horseshit,” Logan said. “Responsibility for fake news begins with us. We bear some responsibility for that, and we’re not taking ownership of that and addressing it. We just want to blame it all on somebody else.”

Hey, you guys are impressed with 51? I lost 130lbs, starting 4 years ago, over 16 months, and have kept it off since. (My weight has stayed within a 5-lb range.) Not particularly low-carb — my goal is 40% carb, 35% fat, 25% protein. In real life I get more like 50/35/15. But all my inflammation markers are way down — thyroid antibodies down, arthritis mostly gone, psoriasis patches gone.

All that comes from fanatical obsessive compulsive measuring and recording everything I eat. Yeah, I know that carbohydrate-rich food has a gazillion calories for nuthin. As I am fond of saying— there are three things:

1) You can avoid eating more calories than you burn.

2) You can avoid being ravenously hungry.

3) You can eat lots of carbohydrates.

My experience is that you can have any two of the three.

Nolte: Looks Like Jussie Smollett Chose Wrong Surveillance Camera to Capture ‘Attack’

https://www.breitbart.com/entertainment/2019/02/18/nolte-looks-like-jussie-smollett-chose-wrong-surveillance-camera-to-capture-attack/

"Speaking to GMA’s Robin Roberts, Smollett said, “And I looked up and I saw there was a camera directly on the light post that is in the intersection. So I’m like, ‘there it is!’… And then the detective told me that the camera inside of the casing was facing north, so they didn’t have it, and that was disappointing.”

That detail appears to stick in his craw. Later in the interview, unprompted, he brings it up again: “The camera facing north, how is that my issue?”

If these brothers are telling the truth that the attack was pre-planned, Smollett may have arranged for it to take place in a location where he assumed it would be recorded."....


"Take a step back, though…

Take a step back and look at the fire Smollett was allegedly willing to play with…
Imagine what it would have done to this country and to the city of Chicago if the attack had been recorded, if an outlet like TMZ had leaked the video, and if the wildly irresponsible race baiters at CNN had broadcast that video over and over and over again — an endless loop of two men assaulting a gay, black man; pouring bleaching on him and tying a noose around his neck."...

Buck Sexton asked a good question on his show.

If Smollett did concoct this fake crime as seems increasingly likely, yet if 2 White guys were seen on video just walking around minding their own business but got pulled in by police and falsely charged, would Smollett have kept his yap shut and let their innocent lives be ruined?

I'd like to think he wouldn't be such a shit but since pretty much everyone on the Left and half the Right dumped all over the innocent Covington Kids to protect their narrative and/or to keep their toga's clean, I sure wouldn't bet on him having an ounce of integrity and doing the right thing.
