    Please post your opinion on fish oil, dose and other supplements that need also be taken when supplementing with fish oil.

    Too many fish oils create excessive lipid perioxidation hence increase free radicals with in the body so anything that fights free radicals is a plus..

    My thoughts exactly. And the part about fish oil being bad for diabetics is flat out wrong. I take it and it literally lowers my blood sugar. Looks like he is trying to sell something to me.

    I only glanced at a few studies that show this, but it seems that, in most of them that showed increased lipid peroxidation, fish oil accounted for most of the fat in the subjects' diets. The takeaway: moderation.

    A brief synopsis of the article.

    The main point: Most people are deficient in unrefined/unprocessed PEO's (Parent Essential Oils). Brian Peskin coined this term.

    This term “Parent Essential Oils” refers to the only two true essential fatty acids: parent omega-6 (LA) and parent omega-3 (ALA). The term “parent” is used because these are the whole, unadulterated form of the only two essential fats your body demands, as they occur in nature. Once PEOs are consumed your body changes a small percentage of them—about 5%—into other biochemicals called “derivatives,” while leaving the remaining 95% in parent form.

    The Parent Essential Oils have very important functions.

    Supplementing with derivatives like fish oil can exacerbate health problems, resulting from a low Omega 3 (ALA)EPA/DHA) ratio.

    Since many of the Omega 3 and Omega 6's we consume are processed, this can lead to a deficiency of the Parent Essential Oils, linoleic acid, and alpha-linolenic acid.

    PEO's should be supplemented in a ratio of 1:1 to 2.5:1, Omega 6:Omega 3.

    Most people don't supplement the PEO alpha-linolenic acid, making it doubly important.


    Do I believe this guy? Not sure, but his research is compelling, and he has definitely done his homework. Most of the research is not his own. He has borrowed it from other scientists and freely admits this.

    I don't trust Quackwatch at all. You'll notice almost every single "alternative" practicitioner is listed on that site. The fact that one is not in :mainstream" medicine is sufficient evidence to being labelled as a quack, apparently no matter how good the research.

    Any comments?

    The authors distinction that LA and ALA have the main biological functions (95%), as opposed to GLA, EPA, and DHA's minor roles, is interesting.

    As well, the small prevalence of unadulterated LA and ALA in our natural diet.

    Is this guy talking out of his ass, or may there be some truth to this? I'm not a big fan of authoritatively shooting down arguments.

    LOL Yes, I just quoted myself.

    I found black current oil and hempseed oil to be the best for supplementing over all it has a 4:1 ratio of 6:3 ratio and may be 1 tsp of fish oils a 3 times a week if you eat fish in not then evry day is fine provided it is balanced with GLA with ratio of 2 GLA:1 (DHA/epa). Then there should be no issues

    I don't know if this was mentioned already in this thread, but people shouldn't worry about balancing their EFA's at all when supplementing (i.e. balancing omega 3 with 6).Most diets are already ultra high in omega-6, unless you completely stay away from omega-6 rich veggies/grains and ONLY eat grass-fed beef.

    I used to use Udo's oil because it's balanced, but then realized that it's not necessary since omega 6 is plentiful in our food, if not too abundant.

    I only use omega 3 fish oil from - Stronger Faster Healthier

    They also have a great testing kit you can buy, to see if you're levels are correct/optimal:Omega-3 Index Assay - Stronger Faster Healthier

    OP's article was just a sales pitch. Sentences like, "I was amazed!" aren't science. Nor was there any actual significant data.

    I'm not sure what you mean here.

    All I know is that the typical diet is PACKED full of omega-6, unless you have a very organic, grain free diet. Most people only need to supplement with omega-3

    I don't live in the arctic though, and I am sure that I'm not living an innuit lifestyle. I don't eat only fish all day long and live in igloos or hunt. And I don't megadose omega 3 either.

    I'm still confused here??? I think we're on two different topics possibly.

    Uh, no it's not. Matrix, I'm going to say this the nicest way possible: get over yourself. You're not in the forefront of medicine. Your holier than thou attitude is tiresome sometimes. People come to this forum with questions and your standard response is that their Dr is an idiot or their clinic sucks or whatever. To my knowledge, you haven't published any of these 'ideas' of yours. If I'm wrong, feel free to correct me.

    As you know from our previous conversations, I do medical research for a living, and am a published author in the area of spinal cord injury. Until your ideas can stand up to a peer review process, please don't portray the image that the info you present is anything other than your opinion. I also am concerned that you use this forum, albeit in a discreet fashion, to drum up business for yourself. I haven't given much time thinking about the ethics of this, but it seems a bit shady to me.

    To his defense, he does know a lot - practices what he preaches, and is pretty cutting edge - and has helped many people.

    But I still would like a clear answer as to why supplementing with a bit of omega 3 is bad. Not talking about mega dosing here. Also would like to discuss why people recommend supplementing with a balanced omega 3:6 ratio when omega 6 is overly abundant in most people's diets (whereas omega 3 is not).

    Hey gutter, he's not licensed or certified in anything and the people he 'helps' are under the care of a physician, not him. Granted he does have a good bit of knowledge, but anyone can get that if they read enough. The thing that gives me the red ass is his 'i had this person do this' or 'i had the doc do this.' he does none of that, the physician does.

    Any recommendations he may have HAVE to be signed off on by a physician. If something goes wrong, it's the doc's ass, not his. Do we really know that any of his cutting edge ideas are his? Or does he find them in obscure journals somewhere? Who knows. If these ideas are indeed his, all he has to do is find a doc to co-author an article and submit it to a journal. If it's that cutting edge, it will get published.

    I respect your opinion gutter, but IMNHO, I think he's taking credit for other people work and passing it off as his own. Don't get me started on using the forum looking for business. That's about as unethical as it gets.

    Bottom line s that he does nothing, the docs do. He writes no orders or scripts and takes care of no one.

    That's all I have to say...

    Any recommendations he may have HAVE to be signed off on by a physician. If something goes wrong, it's the doc's ass, not his. Do we really know that any of his cutting edge ideas are his? Or does he find them in obscure journals somewhere? Who knows. If these ideas are indeed his, all he has to do is find a doc to co-author an article and submit it to a journal. If it's that cutting edge, it will get published.

    I respect your opinion gutter, but IMNHO, I think he's taking credit for other people work and passing it off as his own. Don't get me started on using the forum looking for business. That's about as unethical as it gets.

    Bottom line s that he does nothing, the docs do. He writes no orders or scripts and takes care of no one.

    That's all I have to say...

    I hear what you're saying, and already knew these things. I've chatted on the phone with him. He works with a Dr in PA as a consultant...and he will consult with patients directly - in realtime - to tweak their protocols as well. I am not just speaking about HRT protocols, but general supplementation, etc. I don't see what's wrong with consulting. It's the same as if you or I paid for a personal trainer or nutritional consultant - if we were doing a show. We pay someone we trust to get the job done...and I'd rather pay someone who has the longevity and the know-how, over someone with only school to back them up and isn't on HRT or doesn't have an athletic background. For this reason, I also hold Dr. John very highly. He has both backgrounds in HRT and sports.

    HAN/Matrix has been through it all before! With himself, and many many others. Because of this, he is a wealth of knowledge. I've even thought about charging for my own services as a consultant for nutrition/general health/fitness. The longer we're in this game, the more knowledgeable we become through practice and helping others.

    You are right the research is out there. Problem is there are few people to existing research and instead of looking at it for black and white look at it as gray. Medicine is black or white "you in or out of range" Same thing applies with research. Take pre existing ideas to create new ideas is how we make progress. Published paper are definitely in the near future with well respected MD's. I was very selective who I have been trying to associate myself. Many Drs are in the process of writing books and co authoring they are leaving their practice to do so. Another few months, I will go off the radar ...too many projects, conferences, and seminars on top of doing what I do..Will be no time..

    Gutter I am shifting my gears towards educating the medical doctors through future conference which I have been asked to speak at, seminars and doing one on one and group presentations with medical professionals. I plan on doing a few Published papers with MD's as well as to help set up future studies to research. The medical professionals I surround my self are the pioneers in the field. I am now doing genetic testing which is helping autistic,lyme, CFS, FM, soldiers where modern medicine has not been successful. I just got an email from one of best lyme drs in the state. Meeting with her this saturday for lunch to discuss working together. Yes I think out side the box and Drs are skeptical. When Drs see progression in their patients, the ones who care will start asking questions. Majority of cases are referred to me when the Dr's hit the wall. The patient is under the Dr's care, but it further research and evaluation with proper understanding helps them to break that wall. Hormones is the last thing on the totem pole, Finding out why they can not detox due to genetic expressions is top on the list then everything else is just downstream. I have been in contact with one specific Dr who is very humble, pure heart of gold, could care less about credentials and more of what you know. If I am successful I will not have to pursue anything else. To people in her area she would represent a Dr Crisler or Dr Shippen to us..

    i'm glad you chimed in matrix. tbh, the biggest problem i have is the 'holier than thou' schtick. i respect the fact that you've put in as much time as you have studying hrt. really, i do. gutter brought up a couple of very good points, however we disagree on a couple things: there's nothing wrong with consulting - but the rub is that consultants usually have an education/certification in whatever field they're consulting in. the same thing with trainers and nutritionists. and consultants that have longevity and know how, but not the education have a PROVEN track record in one way or another. imo, they're also the minority.

    if part of what you do is nutrition/supplement consulting, then for christ's sake man, there's a million certs out there, some of which are very good. get one. if you want to consult in hrt, a degree in biology or even neurobiology would give you credibility. if you want people to REALLY pay attention to what you're saying, get some letters after your name. i'll use Zir Red as an example here. Dude's got a PhD in exercise science or kinesiology, i can't remember which. anyone want to debate programming or exercise technique/selection with him? and if you have seminars lined up, great. that's all resume food dude, and that's exactly what you need for what you're trying to do.

    we all hand out advice around here. hell, i spend most of my time in the training sections and pass out advice. but i never take credit for any of the advice i give out. can you say the same? and if you want people to take you seriously, for christ's sake, write a coherent sentence. i understand you're on your phone but i can't follow wtf you're trying to say half the time.
