  1. Great resource. Keep it up. I have been working with fitness and wellness facilities to implement alkaline water for their patrons. Do you have any knowledge about this subject?

    • Yes, I’ve written on acid-alkaline balance, and have implemented the practice in my personal life.
      Check out my article on this subject at Natural News.com: http://www.naturalnews.com/Author264.html.
      I put together a one-page shopping list containing the 50 most acid-forming and 50 most alkaline-forming foods, if anyone would like a copy.
      Very helpful in avoiding the worst acid-forming offenders, or balancing them with the best alkaline-forming choices.

  3. Hi Dr Phil

    my mum is currently undergoing treatment (radiation and chemo) for a very aggressive metastatic cancer in the neck.

    since she has been in hospital (and not eating much), the cancer is speeding up and she is now scheduled for 10 rounds of radiation.

    I 100% believe that if i can get good nutrition into her then she still has a chance, she is VERY weak at the moment, possible giving the cancer the upperhand. she also has trouble swallowing, so eating a lot of food is out of the question.

    I would appreciate so much if you have a few moments spare to suggest what I can do.

    thanks so much

  5. Dr, thank you for your website and especially about natural anti biofilm agents for eradicating intestinal parasites. Any other info you could suggest to someone who is about to embark on treatment of such a disease? Klebsiella oxytoca bacteria and dairy intake, is there a link? I’m finding that one should eliminate dairy and dairy is a primary source of fat for me as other causes dizziness.

    • Don’t give up dairy. Just find a dairy product that works for you. Stay with full fat, because dairy fat is special, but make it grass-fed and organic. Stay away from sugar and carbs, which feed bad bacteria, and make your gut leaky. Go with yogurt to avoid lactose issues. Go with A2 milk (from brown cows or goats) if you have allergies to conventional milk.

  6. Thanks for your info on UTIs an biofilms. My 93 year old mother has recurring UTIs, and is now taking IV antibiotics 2X a day. The stuff makes her so sick. I had her start on D Mannose, but if the bacteria isn’t eColi it won’t work. Should I have her take Potassium Bicarbonate with D Mannose, or instead of? And what dosage of Bismuth Phiols? Can she take this power together and mix with juice?

  7. Hi Dr.Domenico,

    I was wondering if you would be willing to do private consulting (paid) on a health-related biofilm issue. It is being caused by a low-grade but persistent iron bacteria problem in a residential plumbing system that receives municipal water with a small, steady supply of Siderocapsa. I would appreciate your help or advice regarding whom to turn to.

    • I’d love to help, if I can. What is the nature of the problem? For whom do you work? Would it be remotely, or is my presence preferred? The bismuth thiols may help you, but they’re not EPA approved. Still, we can do the preliminary research.

      • Thank you for your response. I am the homeowner and self-employed (not in this field). I was thinking about a remote consult. It concerns cleaning the biofilm created by the iron bacteria. May I email you privately from here on?

  8. I should mention that this plumbing problem is causing a health problem and that is why I think you could be helpful. Thanks.
