Wow, and Thank you.

The levels of caffeine quoted in this study would translate to how many cups of weak green tea?  Steeped 15 seconds?

I can't tell you the amounts.  I just know that when I made strong tea (soaking one bag for several minutes) it seemed to react almost as strongly as some coffee we got from a donut place.  I'm sure different teas and coffees differ and would give a range of values.  And weak tea (only steeped about 15 seconds) was less reactive, but still way up there.

Reverting way back up to the study on caffeine/alkaline phosphatase/bone status:  Aren't there too many variables in peoples' status relative to 1,25 D levels, alkaline phosphatase level and maybe even VDR genotype, to take anything concrete from the study to use upon ourselves?  I would think they'd be starting with subjects who had 'normal' levels in those areas.

I'm wondering if, like so many studies, what means one thing for one individual, may mean something entirely different for another.  As a very primary and somewhat unrelated example, but to explain my slant on this:   I used to take a lot of vitamins/supplements, because I'd read this or that study that said, a particular vitamin was good for this or that part of the bodily system.  After years of taking these supplements, and then having some testing done, I found that I'd gotten myself out of balance in many areas, with too much of this or too little of that in my system, and it was causing material results in my body.  In other words, the studies I was reading only applied to people who had certain base chemistries, presumably 'normal' or average ones, and my chemistry was not normal or average.  (Possibly because I had Th1 disease through the whole time.)  So I was taking a lot of things that were making my situation worse, and vice versa, not taking things I really needed. 

Healthy people need certain levels of 1,25 D and alkaline phosphatase, but if you're not starting out with healthy levels, how does that affect what you carry away from the study?

Maybe I'm missing something here, but I found the abstract inconclusive for me, especially when I read the long version. 

If you see something wrong with my reasoning, let me know, I'd really like to fully understand the abstract and its meaning for us.

Joyce,
Thanks for collating this list of foods. Not all of us have a reaction to foods, but when I was ill, I remember that the foods which used to give me the worst migraines are roughly in the same positions on your list (at the top) as I remember I used to rank them.

I don't know whether these foods would affect bug-killing in any way, in any case I remember that I wasn't so worried about long-term prognosis when lying on the bed for 24 hours wating for a paralytic migraine to ease:X

Once you eat a balanced diet, with a moderation of Vit-D-supplement-free cheese or yoghurt, a moderation of greens and fruits, and a moderation of other proteins, you should be able to avoid the ups-and-downs that excesses can cause.

The body can make many things by itself. Certainly the human body can make all the Vitamin D it needs by itself, and no supplementation is necessary, or desirable. But a healthy body needs a good balanced diet, with everything in moderation.

As to "How Much?" the answer is fairly simple. If you can go for 24 hours without feeling the need for more of something, then you are probably not addicted to it. If you absolutely have to have 3 coffees a day to avoid withdrawal, then you have a problem. One a day is fine. Two might be OK. Similar for juicing. If you can allow your digestion to settle 24 hours between cups then you probably are not having too much, and haven't developed a dependency (remember not to replace the coffee with pomegranate, for example, the effects of CA would be cumulative across all food intake).

Joyce,

It seems that if we eliminate everything with vitamin D and Chlorogenic Acid, there isn't much left to eat - at least in terms of any generally recognized well balanced diet. :(  It seems now that fish green leafy vegetables, berries and a fair amount of fruits are now not recommended here. It seems ( no offense really) that we might make a list of foods that we can eat. It's SOOO frustrating!

 My belly aching aside, I'm wondering what effects you and others are noticing when ingesting too much c. acid? I'm trying to understand what this c.acid is doing. Is it giving people bad side effects ? If so, what types of affects so I can see if I am being affected ? Also, it seems that this acid could be a reason why some are not seeing faster results with the MP, is that what is being suggested?

As for my progress, it seems to be very slow now, but was QUICK and fairly dramatic for the first 6 months ( not just about 2 years into it) , but then things tapered off after 6 mos to a year. Even then my D levels were high - initially 68/32. The last test was 27/ less than 5 , and my diet hasn't changed except for eating less D and staying out of the sun. So I guess I am wondering how much importance we have to place in this vs vitamin D levels and other dietary considerations. I'm just wondering where the powers that be feel this fits into the overall treatment.


Thanks....hope I worded so as to be inquisitive, but fair.

Isn't decreased VDR expression always a bad thing, regardless of person?

If this is so, then I wonder why lithocholic acid (LCA), a potent VDR ligand, still induces colon cancer, despite the increased immunity.

http://www.oncolink.com/resources/article.cfm?c=3&s=8&ss=23&id=8406&month=05&year=2002

Could someone knowledgeable comment on LCA because a high-fat diet increases it and they say in this article that high-fat diet should be avoided because of that.

Also, I vaguely recall reading something like apples having 1/5th or 1/10th the amount of chlorogenic acid compared to coffee so it should be a minor problem. But maybe it isn't.

Norman,

Joyce said,

Due to my extremely high sensitivity, I am going much farther in avoidance, at least temporarily, than most people would need to. At present, I limit myself to the foods without any chlorogenic acid. Most people on the MP would probably only need to avoid getting a very large amount of chlorogenic acid. My thought is that people who are advancing very well on the MP may not need to change their diet at all.
Rarely would someone need to alter their diet this extremely. Moderation is the key to consumption. Please see Chlorogenic Acid.

Jacko,
I suspect that study is flawed. For a start, they didn't measure (or consider) the PXR receptor. That imperils just about everything they did, and all they concluded. Sometime I will get around to taking a closer look.

Well...Thank You

I was doing just fine on the phase 3 abx when one morning my husband was making his morning coffee using the expresso machine - he has this coffee ritual. I don't know why but I saw him mixing his elixir with absolute ecstasy and thought why not so I asked him to make me a cup. He looked at me with this 'are you sure about this' look on his face and I thought it can't do any harm. I only drink tea and I stay away from the green - I already had some bad reactions from the green.

Well holly cow! I had symptoms soon afterwards and I mean really bad. that was three weeks ago. As the symptoms waned I have been sleeping like a baby though. The coffee was delicious; was it worth it? Nope. All this at the tail end of the abx too. Now I know why - thanks!

I have found a very large(involving 1,514 men and 1,528 women = 3000 people!), interesting study about positive association between coffee drinking  and inflammatory markers .

An abstract (and full version )  http://www.ajcn.org/cgi/content/abstract/80/4/862

And here is the same study different article with nice comparison table between coffee drinking and inflammatory markers http://www.ajcn.org/cgi/content/abstract/80/4/862


Coffee mostly increases Interleuking 6 production.
This quote is from full version of the article
In the present work, we report a positive association between coffee consumption and IL-6 concentrations. It could be hypothesized that coffee increases IL-6 synthesis, which then affects CRP and SAAproduction in the liver.TNFis also involved in the acute-phase protein synthesis, but it was suggested that only IL-6 can stimulate synthesis of all acute-phase proteins involved in the inflammatory response—namely CRP, SAA, fibrinogen, and others (23). So coffee increases directly IL-6 and then the rest happens

Now it starts to be interesting.

When i was reading about Interleukin-6  http://www.thefutureforum.com/EmergingRiskMarker/Interleukin6.aspx

i have found this, just at the end of the article in "Perspective Treatments section"
Statins have been shown to reduce IL-6 levels in patients with familial and non-familial hypercholesterolaemia, and in individuals with obesity (Int J Cardiol 2001;77:247-53; Arterioscler Thromb Vasc Biol 2002;22:1194-9; Clin Chem 2002;48:877-83; Atherosclerosis 2003;169:283-91; Horm Metab Res 2003;35:479-85). These studies all used simvastatin or atorvastatin. However, atorvastatin did not reduce IL-6 levels in patients in the MIRACL trial, all of whom sustained a recent acute coronary syndrome (Circulation 2003;108:1560-6).

 Patients recovering from an acute coronary syndrome have shown a reduction in IL-6 levels in response to cyclo-oxygenase-2 inhibition (rofecoxib; Chest 2004;125:1610-5). In addition, the angiotensin receptor blocker irbesartan, has been shown to reduce IL-6 levels in patients with CAD, who have undergone angioplasty (J Am Coll Cardiol 2004;44:362-8). In poorly controlled diabetics, improvements in glycaemic control also appear to reduce plasma IL-6 levels (Diabet Med 2003;20:930-4).

Both simvastatin ( atorvastatin did not reduce IL-6 levels)and irbesartan have been associated with a deacrease in IL-6 production and identified as a VDR agonist by Dr Marshall, which can be read in here http://curemyth1.org/view_topic.php?id=39&forum_id=2&highlight=simvastatin

Is it probable then, that inflammatory markers increase resulting from coffee consumption, is from chlorogenic acid content  and it's antagonistic properties on a VDR ?

Lisa,
Being addicted to coffee generally indicates a physical need for its immunosuppressive properties, which will slow the ability of the MP to restore your immune system.

The paper just cited by Wrotek says that amounts under 100ml a day should have little effect. I guess that's about one smallish cup.

Wrotek asked "Is it probable then, that inflammatory markers increase resulting from coffee consumption, is from chlorogenic acid content  and it's antagonistic properties on a VDR ?"

The answer is not simple. The human immune system consists of many inter-dependent activities, and when the innate immune response is inhibited, whether by Th1 disease or by a drug (eg Chlorogenic Acid) then a cascade of actions will occur downstream amongst the cytokines. In the past I have taken the position that this immune cascade is imponderable, and have focused on the innate immune defect, which has turned out to be solvable. Once the VDR is restored to competence, the rest of the immune system also returns to balance.

What I mean by "I have taken the position that this immune cascade is imponderable" is that I consider it a waste of time to concentrate on the Trees, instead of standing back and observing the Forest.

I see.

Dr Marshall do You think these two compounds may have some VDR activity ?
http://www.food-info.net/uk/products/coffee/kahweol.htm

Their shapes are somehow similar to steroids i think.

They look too rigid.
But the only way to be sure is to run the computations, and I am too busy to do that right now.

I wish i knew how to run computations :) Btw it would be nice to start a global project  (like SETI) to search for VDR ligands

Dr Marshall  is there any plug and play computation software ?

You folk want answers sooner, rather than later, so the infrastructure built by SETI would be a hindrance, rather than a help.

Look at  http://www.Gromacs.org
That is the molecular dynamics software, it is open source.
