Worms as Human Aging Models and Worm SIFO/SIBO
Humans are one of the highest form of eukaryotes and worms, the simplest, most elegant. C. elegans nematodes have nearly the full suite of homolog nuclear receptors, IGF, insulin, and AMPK pathways. They have a gut microbiota as well and mutualistic health of the microbiota mirrors their longevity. Careiro and Gems discuss in the above article how bacterial proliferation of the nematode gut highly correlates with reduced immunity and aging. While the relationship is mutualistic, both microbes and host benefit. The microbes have a happy home, warmth and food. For the worm host, the gains are immeasurable -- happy immunity, vitamins/minerals and longevity. One of the best growth media for C elegans is B subtilis, the soil based organism I talk a lot about. When growth media are switched out to bacteria which are less mutualistic (like pure E. coli), the nematodes have a very short life. Blockages of the lumen occur; worm constipation and something analogous to mammalian SIFO/SIBO. When the media has a natural SBO like B subtilis, the nematodes thrive, have no signs of aging or bacterial proliferation and demonstrate notable worm longevity. Any intervention in fact that prevents bacterial proliferation (SIFO/SIBO) extends lifespans they reveal. Makes sense, no?
Two of my favorite probiotics contain B subtilis (Prescript Assist and AMD Syntol). Foods that contain B subtilis include any ancestrally prepared and fermented foods that include both protein and starch: gochujang, natto, fermented black bean sauce, Thai shrimp sauces, etc.

Worms, Change in Hunter-Gatherer Existence and Extended Families
The second article discusses how in the Neolithic only 10,000 years ago, humans were faced with even more pathogens than ever by living in close quarters with both other humans and livestock. Without a resilient immune system and evolving gene polymorphisms, we could not have survived. "With the introduction of agriculture and animal husbandry, food resources became more abundant and constant and, for the ﬁrst time in human history, the population size dramatically increased." The authors theorize that if it were not for improved immunity via the gut microbiota humans would not have been able to the endure the high antigenic and pathogen load. I think this is true. The lectins and phytates from dietary sources were one challenge and the pathogens like worms, malaria, plague, mites, and other fun things were yet another hurdle. Hemochromatosis, cystic fibrosis, increased salivary alpha-amylases might have been some of the adaptations that survived.
"The support of grandmothers in the nourishment of children allowed more pregnancies in the daughters, and thus a greater reproductive ﬁtness." Having two children myself, I can support their theory that post-menopausal female longevity was certainly favored for perhaps many reasons including processing grains (soaking, fermenting), preparing fermented vegetables and foods, farming and other tasks for feeding young, dependent children. There were so many tired nights raising the little kiddies. Certainly, I would not have been able to survive the post-natal years without my children's grandparents from BOTH SIDES. LOL
"Furthermore, symbiont intestinal microorganisms provided a strategic ﬁtness advantage for the human beings living the Neolithic agricultural revolution by protecting the host from pathogen colonization and enhancing the plasticity of the immune system. Finally, dietary change in the Neolithic agricultural societies due to agricultural practice likely induced a substantial re-adaptation of GM [gut microbiota], favouring microbial communities capable to ferment these new complex polysaccharides to short chain fatty acids (Hehemann et al. 2010)."
Who are your symbionts? Are they extinct? Do you respect them? Are you doing things that favor their growth? Have you weeded? Seeded your gut microbiota? Feeding and breeding your symbionts in luxury and abundance?
Success Cases with SBO Probiotics and the 7-Steps
I'm grateful for Tim and Richard at FTA for starting the conversations on gut ecosystems, fiber and health optimization. Thanks for directing people over here to the 7-Steps To Cure SIBO/SIFO.
Happy New Year to my kind readers~!! Thank you for sharing your wonderful stories. I love U and love hearing them all.
Case A: After 3 weeks of SBO + FIBER/RS + Gut Rehab -- Reversal of Sjogren's Auto-Antibodies (Chromatin, SSB-LA, ANA)
Anonymous was taking 3 months of PS but no changes until SBO probiotics were taken. In only 3 weeks with taking Primal Defense and Prescript Assist three times per day, she reported her autoimmune Sjogren's disease to be completely 100% 'cured'. Three noxious auto-antibodies (SSB-LA, Chromatin, ANA) normalized or returned to near normal.
"My fingernails are clear and my cold fingers are gone. Oh, I didn't want to tell you this just yet. But my Sjogren's antibody (SSB-LA) turned negative last week! That's after being on the RS/Probiotics regimen for only 3 weeks! I was on RS since August, however. Also, one of the incipient lupus antibody that I tested positive (Chromatin) turned negative this time! My ANA is positive but with very low titer (1:40). That's the lowest I ever tested and even normal people test at that level. My rheumatologist will be confused!
If this holds up, and I'm hoping it does, I have cured an autoimmune disease. No symptoms and no antibody: that's a 100% cure. Not just remission. Being antibody-negative is not supposed to be possible, right? Whither molecular mimicry and eternal damnation, I mean, eternal autoimmune tissue attack? You mean, that's contolled by the microbiome, too? So much for Dr. Fassano and leaky gut (which I now realize seem to have been a foil ... it happens but the underlying condition seems to be gut dysbiosis and bacteria).
Wow, I gotta try this on my aunt who also has Sjogren's and my cousin who has Lupus. Thanks so much guys. This is not what modern medicine says is possible!"
Case B: After SBO, Fermented Food + FIBER/RS + Gut Rehab -- Reversal of Pain, Poor Mood, and Fibromyalgia
From Alexander Hardy (Ajmhardy)
"Just thought I’d add to the noise here- I’ve had a set of health problems that differs from most people using RS on this site, namely persistent and intense anxiety, as well as adrenal and sleep problems due to going VLC for a few months. I’ve also had fibromyalgia for the past year now, and I could not get it to go away for the longest time. After reading Richard’s and Tim’s posts here, I added RS to my diet (which already included fermented foods, good meats, and lots of vegetables), and my symptoms have started to improve for the first time since I started feeling the pain.
They have not gone away completely yet, but my mood and the pain have gotten so much better that for the first time in a year, I completely forgot I had fibromyalgia yesterday for almost the entire day. I cannot thank you guys enough for putting in the tremendous amount of work that you do to spread the word about resistant starch...
A note to anyone who may be reading this in hopes of helping their fibromyalgia- it took me a solid month of having dr bg.’s bionic RS and straight potato starch (total 8 TSP potato starch a day) to finally feel the pain subside, and I would guess it could take some people many months to get the same relief I got, depending on the state of their gut.
So don’t give up if this doesn’t work within a month, and make sure to include the things that I consumed before I added the potato starch- dulse (for iodine), vitamin d and K supplements, as well as N-acetylcysteine , sauerkraut, kimchi, gochujang, variety of greens and other veggies, sweet potatoes and potatoes, magnesium and zinc supplements, prescription assist, and fish oil pills."
