Never Ask Us if We're Hungry -- The Answer's Always No
There are three of us here and for many years, none of us ever got hungry. When our brains would turn to mush, when our faces would go numb, and we would start the invisible vibration which is the signature dance of ME/CFS, we knew we needed to eat.

    Stephen Buhner, author of Healing Lyme and a new book on coinfections bartonella and mycoplasma, has a collagen building protocol. I have a couple of questions.

    One of the things he recommends is pregnenolone. The dosages he recommends seem kind of high (50-200 mg). Is that normal to take that much pregnenolone?

    Another thing he recommends is silicon as orthosilicic acid such as BioSil. Swanson is selling a bamboo extract that's standardized to 70% silica.

    There are also other companies that are selling silica from bamboo extract, but not much more expensive than Swanson's. The bamboo extracts have a much higher amount of silica so it seems like it would be a lot cheaper to use that, but I was wondering if it's the same thing as Biosil or Flora's vegetal silica since those are so much for expensive.
