Dear Lucy,
Tuesday, January 8, 2019, I listened to your interview with Chris Kresser RHR: "What the Latest Research Says about Probiotics, with Lucy Mailing" on NOVEMBER 14, 2018.

I have so many questions, alas I know you are busy with your life and other things. If you are interested connecting, please let me know. I have been searching for a microbiologist whom I can speak with about a theory.

Exercise and movement are more beneficial for Parkinson’s patients, not for the known reasons, but a different way of viewing the body. Interoception and Proprioception have to do with fluid flow and sensory transmission within the Organ or System called Fascia aka Interstitum. Currently, the theory I have has not been written about. The story is coming. I hope you can help me.

I live in Sweden. But in your town, Urbana, lives Doug Nelson. A few people at the University know him. Doug is my former educator in massage therapy. He is a scientist of the highest curiosity, an incredibly wonderful man, and someone who encouraged me to do my own research.

Zen and the Discovery of a “New” Organ: The Human Interstitium

Neil Soten Theise, MD, physician-scientist and Village Zendo Senior Student will discuss the discovery of a “new” organ widely reported in the world press earlier this year. In telling the story of this new anatomy, he will once again show how zen practice of “not knowing” is at the core of creative scientific advances. Interestingly, the human interstitium —literally the tissue that lies “in between” — may turn out to be the interstitial concept that can finally mediate connections between diverse traditions of clinical practice and biology including contemporary allopathic (“Western”) medicine, osteopathy, fascia science, acupuncture, concepts of chi and prana and pulse diagnosis in Tibetan medicine.

Gil Hedley answers a long standing question: is "the fuzz" fascia? First he shows how subcutaneous adipose, and then loose connective tissue, both can be demonstrated as fascia properly speaking by the strict definition proposed at the 2015 Fascia Congress. Superficial fascia and perifascia are proposed as names for these tissues generally considered to be loose areolar connective tissues.

Email campaign - week 2


Doug,
In case you are on U of I campus and you run into a woman named Lucy Mailing. Could you put this theory in your pocket and hand it to her?

Lucy is a fourth-year graduate student in the dual degree MD/PhD program at the University of Illinois
and was recently recognized by the American Society of Nutrition as an Emerging Leader in Nutrition Sciences. Her dissertation research focuses on the effects of diet and exercise on the gut microbiome and how this impacts gut and skin health.

Lucy is accomplished researcher and writer:

• “Are Probiotics Useless? A Microbiome Researcher’s Perspective,” by Lucy Mailing

• “Personalized Gut Mucosal Colonization Resistance to Empiric Probiotics Is Associated with Unique Host and Microbiome Features,” published in Cell

• “Post-Antibiotic Gut Mucosal Microbiome Reconstitution Is Impaired by Probiotics and Improved by Autologous FMT,” published in Cell

Theory of Fascia and what lives in it: Interoception and proprioception transmission occurs thru fascia, resulting brain health or disease.

by Allissa Harter

I have no formal science training, but I have a lot of curiosity which I get from my father’s X chromosome. Ms. Mailing, I would like to ask your help to figure something out. If you are interested in further discussions after reading this, the opportunity would delight me.

Egyptian Beer Bread contained a molecule well know to modern medicine as a mold, an antibiotic, tetracycline.


Bones of mummies were a hot commodity at one time. The bones were ground up; used by painters as Mummy Brown or by people who drank nasty tasting bone tea. Egyptians who drank the elixir of life, beer bread, or those whom drank bone tea were said to feel overall better.

They consumed an antibiotic which most likely cured common ailments of the day. Scottish chemist Sir Alexander Fleming reintroduced modern medicine to antibiotics as recently as 1928.

Questions:
Why was a molecule like tetracycline found in Ancient Egyptians’ bones and teeth? Why would a molecule lodge in dense connective tissue if it did NOT have a purpose to be there? Would this indicate the molecule was doing its job? Is the protein matrix of the human body collagen, elastin and reticulin, a sort of biofilm built by Quorum Sensing nanosized Bacteria?

This leads me down a rabbit hole with a possible answer.

Soft tissue like fascia and muscles deteriorate over time. Left over is dense connective tissue, bone and teeth. A chronicle of time demonstrating the builders of connective tissue known as bacteria or microbes. The antibiotic found in ancient Egyptian bones must have been there for a reason. This molecule was drawn to naturally occurring bacteria/microbes in the connective tissue.

According to Professor Bonnie Bassler of Princeton’s Bassler Labs. Bacteria build biofilms and bacteria communicate thru Quorum Sensing.

Proteins like Collagen/Elastin/Reticulin and the watery fluid they live in ARE our body’s organ of Interception and Proprioception. This organ would be the Fascia and the ExtraCellularMatrix in which fascia lives. Unlike the vagus nerve, fascia cannot be severed, the network is everywhere, surrounding everything.

The fluid fascia matrix can become dehydrated which will slow or impede transmission to the rest of the network, the brain. (See Neuroanatomist A.D. “Bud” Craig work on Interoception to the brain’s Insula, book: “How Do You Feel”).

Like car batteries of the 1980s, batteries drained and electrolytes could not flow. As signal transmissions impede, the constant ebb and flow of fluid withers, and debris cannot wash away, see Glymphatics. Therefore, tau tangles, hardening & protein build up, cognitive issues, and perception alterations from the norm occur in local or global locations of the body.

This would be an answer to why: Bodywork, Mindfulness, and Relaxation is good for an individual.

Thank you for reading,

Blood Sugar Study to Karen Villet
Friday 4 jan 2019:
Karen asked: “So why did you do this glucose study?”

Many of my clients in the USA whom agreed to the blood sugar test (Feb 2014-Sept 2014) were under chronic stress. Some had work stress, emotional stress and/or physical stress. Some were sleep deprived, while others had age related issues, even post surgery related complications.

The most remarkable individual whom encouraged me to do the study was Mr CK. The 8am-5pm career he had was stressful. Mr. CK was unexpectedly diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. Despite, eating very healthy with quinoa, buck wheat pancakes, gluten free breads, non-processed foods, root vegetables, and while shopping exclusively at Farmers Markets, and the outer edges of the supermarket rather than the shelves.

When Mr. CK went home, despite what he ate pre or post massage, his blood sugar always measured the most remarkable decrease after our massage sessions.

Why, we wondered ??!?!?! So I ran a study with volunteers whom agreed to test their blood glucose with a selected OTC blood glucose monitor, which calibrated to Mr. CK’s own blood glucose monitor.

Intriguing results began to come in.

  • The case of Ms HS, her 2nd testing. Her blood sugar was higher post massage because of the apprehension of going to a dentist appt.
  • Mr RP, 3rd testing. He was going directly on vacation after massage. Upon arriving, he proudly boasted “not even taking the laptop”. His pre AND post blood sugar test was significantly different from the previously high pre massage levels.

Wow! Changes happened not because of diet, but circumstances. My goal was to find out how massage affected the blood sugar levels, despite what food items were taken in by mouth.

In theory, massage is relaxing. Does this relaxation affect pre and post massage blood sugar levels? Or is there another reason the blood sugar levels were affected from massage?

Following the Blood Sugar Data taken in 2014, I have researched interesting stories, interviews, and studies. Some regarding cortisol levels, insulin resistance, alzheimer’s, parkinson’s, obesity, our fascia and our microbiome.

Many people said that blood sugar is exclusive to diet ONLY. My citizen science sleuthing says that is a medical myth; therefore, massage or other relaxation techniques are something to look into further in order to treat chronically high blood sugar levels.

Type 2 diabetes- it is NOT just related to diet. Stress, lack of sleep, age due to lower muscle mass. All raise cortisol levels, which raise sugar, which in turn can contribute to insulin resistance.

Blood sugar levels may rise when one is chronically stressed. When cortisol levels raise, in response, insulin levels raise. Like a newbie drinker of alcohol gets tipsy after one drink vs a seasoned drinker taking the whole bottle in order to feel the same buzz. Insulin curbs blood sugar until it the body is insulin resistant. “When insulin can no longer keep [blood] sugar under control, despite its best efforts, we say you have a disease, Type 2 Diabetes.” Dr. Rangan Chatterjee Chapter 1 @ 10:44 minutes, “How to Make Disease Disappear”


Chapter 1 “How to Make Disease Disappear” by Rangan Chatterjee
Acute Disease and Chronic Disease are different things. Modern medicine is good at treating acute disease. Chronic Disease does not respond to the same method.

@8:35-9:35 minutes - audio book

Patient Mary 35 years old - struggling with weight problems, joint problems, sleep problems and fatigue. Blood test sample taken, Diagnosis: Type 2 diabetes.

“1 in 10 Americans has Type 2 diabetes and 1 in 4 has its pre-cursor Pre-Diabetes. The vast majority of sufferers don’t even known they’ve got it. Between 1990 and 2013, rates of the disease shot up by an incredible 71% in the United States. One of the MOST dramatic increases of any nation. It currently costs the U.S. alone, more than $245 Billion Dollars a year. Within 30 days of treating Mary, I made her diabetes disappear. Two years on, her disease is no where to be seen.”


Dementia with Lewy Body Disease and Parkinson’s Disease

I listened Wednesday June 27, 2018, to Dr. Melissa Schilling speak with Dr. David Perlmutter on Empowering Neurologist. At 5:55 minutes, the discussion turned to Insulin Degrading Enzyme or the Alpha-synuclein protein or SNCA genes. Down the Google rabbit hole I went with SNCA proteins https://ghr.nlm.nih.gov/gene/SNCA.

Normal Function

The SNCA gene provides instructions for making a small protein called alpha-synuclein. Alpha-synuclein is abundant in the brain, and smaller amounts are found in the heart, skeletal muscles, and the pancreas.

SHAPE: In dementia with Lewy bodies, SNCA gene mutations lead to the production of an alpha-synuclein protein with an abnormal shape. The misshapen proteins cluster together, forming the main component of Lewy bodies.

Researchers have described two types of alterations of the SNCA gene in people with Parkinson disease. One type changes a single protein building block (amino acid) used to make alpha-synuclein. In some cases, the amino acid alanine is replaced with the amino acid threonine at protein position 53 (written as Ala53Thr or A53T) or with the amino acid proline at position 30 (written as Ala30Pro or A30P). These mutations cause the alpha-synuclein protein to take on an incorrect 3-dimensional shape (misfold). In the other type of alteration, one of the two SNCA genes in each cell is inappropriately duplicated or triplicated. The extra copies of the SNCA gene lead to an excess of alpha-synuclein.

At this point, it’s becoming a more commonplace topic in our conversations about Alzheimer’s that the disease is, in fact, preventable. While we’re not quite there yet in terms of general acceptance of this idea, the work of Dr. Melissa Schilling reveals the key insight that blood sugar regulation plays a pivotal role in determining the health of the brain, and your risk for neurological degeneration, specifically potential development of Alzheimer’s Disease. In today’s interview, Dr. Schilling describes the reasons for her interest in Alzheimer’s, as well as her recent landmark publication in which she reveals, yet again, this incredible relationship between blood sugar, diet, and risk for Alzheimer’s disease. For more, read the blog post I authored on her findings. I’m hoping you’ll enjoy this interview, I sure did.

“AH-HA moment……” by Allissa Harter from Iowa, Living in Sweden
Thursday, June 28th, 2018


The British Fascia Symposium (BFS) of 2018 passed more than one month ago. There were so many ah-ha moments from the preBioTensegrity Conference (BTC) with the outstanding urologist Dr Naill Galloway pelvic floor tensegrity lecture. Then to the British Fascia Symposium’s Dr. Carol Davis. She received a standing ovation on the main stage lecture, “The Role of Mitochrondria, Fascia and Energy in Pain”. Then Daniel Lawrence's isometric exercises for healing tendonpathies, “Tendons Don’t Exist in the World of Fascia”. The weekend was full of awesome learning adventures.

I gave a side lecture followed by a brilliant man Gary Carter. Gary introduced me to a kugel ball and the concept of fascial slings. He has a book coming out September 2018 which will be fascinating and relevant to all body workers, “The Anatomy Slings: Variations in Myofascial Slings & Continuities”. Go to www.naturalbodies.co.uk to order your own copy.

He and others are part of the Fascialnet Plastination Project. They are working along side, none other than, Gunter Von Hagen from BodyWorlds to create the world’s first Plastinated Fascial Human. EXCITING!!!

My lecture ‘Fascia: where it lives and what lives in it' will be followed up in a conversation with John Wilks of eHealth Learning on Tuesday, July 3, 2018. We will see where this all goes, I am not holding my breath as the wheels of change grind at an alarmingly slow pace.

What I am excited to tell, is the pinnacle of AH-HA Moments, during Gary Carter’s lecture after mine on Sunday May 13, 2018. He had a skeleton hanging like every geeky science person has hanging in their treatment room. Except this skeleton, had slings attached. The sling went from the hip to the tibia and fibula. Gary unscrewed a few screws and removed the femur. Nothing fell apart. The structure was still standing, hanging, without support of the thigh bone. What?!!!!!!!!!???!!!!!!

The fascial slings were holding the skeleton together.

Well, if that can happen, then why does the human body have bones? What purpose are bones if the fascial slings can and do support and transmit force across muscles and the body? The bones actually float, per Orthopedist Stephen Levin, MD.

With the idea of biotensegrity, the function of bone is not really being a lever or a fulcrum. Our Science for the last 100 years may need to be re-evaluated. On to the AH-HA moment, the newest lecture: Fascia is a Fold of Biofilm; Bone is the Kernel.

“A review of Jante's Law #9 and Nicklas” by Allissa Harter from Iowa, Living in Sweden
Wednesday, June 27th, 2018

This is a follow up to a previous Blog:
BLOG A - http://bfs.uggleboterapi.se/#post10
“Pause…Blog A. Law of Jante #9” written Friday, March 16, 2018

In Nordic countries there is the Law of Jante. A Danish author, Aksel Nielsen, wrote a fictional story in 1933, and these laws became part of the Scandinavian drinking water.

Law #9: You are not to think anyone cares about you.

I saw Nicklas on Thursday April 26, 2018 days prior to the British Fascia Symposium (BFS). Nicklas was going to see his primary care provider to get the blood test results from his 2nd blood test of B12 levels done on February 20th and to discuss a date for his right hand carpal tunnel surgery. He had carpal tunnel surgery a year prior on May 4th on his left hand.

On Monday, May 14, I returned from the BFS. I was full of excitement and possibilities. Some excitement dwindled, an unexpected kick to the stomach happened on Wednesday, May 16th. The forum for my new education of MELT Hand and Foot classes were cancelled. Wellness Corner, the outlet to be used, announced bankruptcy.

Upon seeing Nicklas May 17th, the excitement came back. His recent visit to the doctor revealed B12 blood test results from the February test to be 300; almost double the test from December 2017 of 131. Upon the Dec 2017 visit, Nicklas started a prescribption of Behepan, cyanokobalamin, man made B12. The scale in Sweden for ideal B12 is between 150-500.

Nicklas was standing in front of me, pain free in the neck. He stated that his legs felt more stable and able to support him. His right heel spur and low back were the current issues, could we address those areas today?

“REALLY?!” I said, “Wow! You are doing very well.” Yes, he had been walking without canes for a while. In fact, he could not remember the last time he used them. His hands had been giving him fits of pain, but the doctors were discussing carpal tunnel surgery on the right hand to remedy the issue.

“Nicklas……… do you realize, I have not seen you this way since we met in March 2017? Why do you think you are doing so well?” A shrug was the answer.

“Could it be, your B12 levels are finally at a better level than before?” I asked. “Perhaps.” he responded.

FAST FORWARD to June 21, 2018….. “WHAT?!” I exclaimed!

After our last appointment on the 17th of May, Nicklas’ B12 prescription had run out. There were no more refills. It had been possibly 3 or 4 weeks without taking supplemental B12.

On June 21, 2018, Nicklas walked in with a back brace. He needed it to walk, to sit, to support him, and to get up from a sitting position. UGH! WHAT?

Perhaps I want it to be so simple as to disminish his pain with something like B12. But take a look at what B12 is…..our microbes inside of us make it. Cyankobalamin is man made B12 made from fermenting bacteria. We take it orally in more concentrated doses and the body functions better.

HOW is a massage therapist supposed to help a body, if the body does not have what it needs to function at the certain level?! Why am I so frustrated about this???!

One, angry at medicine for not Seeing Beyond the Light. Perhaps carpal tunnel surgery is the answer for his hand, but a year later and his left hand scar feels like razor blades cutting him when he moves his wrist in a certain direction. TWO, his doctor should listen better and educate him more. A doctor is a teacher, Latin verb docēre ’to teach’. In Swedish en läkare, a doctor eller en lärare, a teacher. Same, same, but different.

UGH!

In which every button on the microscope is for imaging tiny objects, he reduced the photo toxicity because mostly what happens is you kill the cells when you try to image them. And then he also wrote these custom algorithms that allowed him to segment the cells and tell who was who. And so now, I will show you what he got.

Fascia: where it lives and what lives in it.

"Fascia: where it lives and what lives in it."
måndag den 7 may 2018

This lecture will present a unique view of the fascial web under the skin and between the organs and present key visual aids from researchers, medical doctors, scientists, and others.

The lecture will provoke the audience through awe and possible disgust to question and view the fascia and extracellular matrix as a living organism in its own dimension.

More than 4,000 years ago, the theory of the four humors of the human body (black bile, yellow bile, phlegm, and blood) dominated Egyptian thought. It passed into Greek, Roman, and Islamic medicine and eventually became the underpinning of Western medicine until the mid-19th century. (Mütter Museum in Philadelphia, http://muttermuseum.org)

Are we ready to Turn the Page of Medicine? Let us take a look at the Fascia and who or what lives in it?

I grew up being told facts. As I grew up, these facts became the “Thinking of Yesterday”. The reason facts become myths is because there is someone or many someone’s asking questions. Really? Are we certain? How can that be? Let us test the facts!

Elon Musk’s 1st Principles Analysis: Take the most fundamental truths in a particular arena, almost indisputably correct, reason up from there to a conclusion. And if one sees that the conclusion is at odds with most opinion, then one has an opportunity.

John Lewis’ book, ‘A.T. Still, from Dry Bones to the Living Man’ is one of the most influential books to read from front to back and back to front. The more Dr. Still understood about the human body, the more he could help people. In his time, medicine could kill as well as addict those who were prescribed a remedy. He wanted to pass along his knowledge. All were welcome to attend his school, women and men, lay people and professionally trained medical people alike. Those who could pay tuition and those who could not pay were also welcomed.

There was a requirement: a passion to help others find health.

Dr. Still, M.D. indicated working with Fascia is working with the branch offices of the Brain. In 6 short lectures at the British Fascial Symposium, we will look for the keys to the Kingdom.
