Re: diarrhea as a side effect of the keto-diet

I am heterozygous for rs10156191 (that means only one mutated copy was passed down to me from a parent). One day, I made a breve with straight coconut cream for the first time.

Re: I need help with KETO, please

We need help with Keto, too! My wife is apoe4 positive (heterozygous). So we started the Mito diet (recommended by the Institute of Functional Medicine) a year ago.

Does Julie Reynolds still take these 4 supps at bedtime??

I am listening to this 2017 interview. She said she takes these four at bedtime: Progesterone, melatonin, ashwagandha, Bacopa monnieri. Does she still take those? Anything else?
