Things that have brought others to destruction. This keys us into the time frame we are in concerning the destruction of this system.
We have done our best to speak for those who are struggling. We can sleep at night knowing we have warned our neighbors and have spoken up for the down trodden.

I still have a lot of things to ad but I have decided to put all the research I did when I was working on healing on one web page. Hope it helps.
This is not medical advice and should not be taken as such. It is for informational and educational purposes only. Please find a qualified naturopathic doctor with a proven history of good work. Allopathic medicine only treats the symptoms, naturopathic treats the cause. For reasons I don’t have time to discuss I do not like homeopathy although it does have some good things.
It takes a lot of research and self discipline to get into remission from interstitial cystitis but I know it can be down because I can eat and do many things now. When I do have flare ups they do not last more then a day or two. For the most part the things that help me have become a habit and a part of my life so I forget I have it sometimes unless I eat some GMOs or a lot of sugar or something else I shouldn’t be eating.
If you have bladder issues and are not certain what the problem is this is a pdf you can download that is a symptom profile for interstitial cystitis.
Interstitial Cystitis can be put in remission. There are many causes like toxins in our environment, pathogens. Mine is caused by Lyme disease. There are studies that have shown that up to 80% of those with interstitial cystitis have tick born illness. Vaccine injury is also a cause of interstitial cystitis. BT Toxins in GMOs and the glyphosate used on them can cause interstitial cystitis. I will try to list links to source to show the claims I make. These links list the possible causes. When we get an infection in the bladder it sheds and raises histamines and inflammation. This tell the body there is a problem and it will send an all out attack to try and get rid of pathogens or whatever is causing the problem. In those with interstitial cystitis the bladder get stuck in this cycle and the key is getting the inflammation down and getting the brain to believe that things are ok. That is why it is very important to address mental issues, health issues and reduce the inflammation, histamines and pain so the cycle can be stopped.
GP51 glycoprotein has been found to be deficient in those with IC. This causes the bladder to get stuck in a shedding and repair state. I have found adding source of glycoprotein to my diet helped me a lot. I did herx at first because glycoproteins also help kill pathogens.
Each persons IC is unique and has to be addressed according to their health issues. There is not a one size fits all protocol.
I will list things that have helped my friends and I at the end of this article.
Each of us is unique we have to figure out the cause. Many of us have metabolic issues like inhibited sulfation or upregulated CBS or BH4 pathways which causes interstitial cystitis. All this can be caused by toxins, endotoxins from infection and the toxins in vaccinations which stay in the body for years. The key to going into remission is figuring out what our metabolic and immune issues are and addressing them. Many of the things I mentioned cause leaky gut so it must be healed. All the things I mentioned above cause high oxalate levels so we must watch our oxalate intake. Also high doses of vitamin C and vitamin D can cause oxalates so we must do those in moderation. Most recommend we do not do over 4000 IU of vitamin D a day. Because our skin can make vitamin D from sun light life guards have the highest incidence of kidney stones. Sun light is good and needed but do not over do it.
That being said I am going to list sites of people who have gotten their IC into remission. The reason I say remission many I know who have recovered still have temporary short term episodes but because we have learned how to recover they do not last long. So I believe we never fully get rid of IC.
Many of the things in this article helped me but you must make sure they are organic. There are many herbicide and pesticide residues on and in foods now and they will make us much worse. To learn more read my post on GMOs.
Many articles will mention cranberry but most IC sufferers have high oxalates and we must try our best to consume low oxalate foods. D-Mannose in cranberries does help the bladder and you can buy it as a separate supplement. I do not recommend cranberry juice for any bladder issues because of it’s oxalate containt. Also it has a high acid level and many IC sufferers have acidosis. The things mentioned in the article below have helped many but they do promote cranberry juice which could cause problems in the bladder. When you see articles that mention cranberry juice take it with a grain of salt.
Here is a list of the oxalate content of food. Remember we cannot completely avoid them but this knowledge can help us to avoid them.
This is a list of links to research of things that help with IC.
Diet changes that may help with IC.
Those who have IC usually also have fibromyalgia, the mechanisms that trigger it are the same.
All who have interstitial cystitis have mast cell activation issues. Which is also common in fibromyalgia.
Some have had good results at lowering histamines with Pentosanpolysulfate but you have to make sure you do not have sulfation issues before using it.
Studies have found that those with interstitial cystitis have an imbalance in their gut bacteria.
Bradykinins contribute to IC, grape seed extract reduces bradykinins.
Studies have shown many IC sufferers are low in vitamin D. I would not take over 4000 IU of vitamin D because studies have shown doses higher then that cause oxalates to form. Also make sure you use natural vitamin D man made vitamin D has been found to cause many negative side effects.
Many of the species of bacteria that cause IC cannot be detected. These types are usually found in rivers and lakes. If our Acidophilus bacteria is low we loss the protection they give. Antibiotics kill our good bacteria which would make us lose protection.
Vaccinations damage the HPA which is found to be common in IC.
Many have said the supplement CystoProtek has helped them.
Epigallocatechon Gallate helps with IC unfortunately many of the foods that contain them are also high oxalate or high histamine. Green Tea if consumed in high quantities can raise histamine levels. Also get organic and from countries that have strict environmental laws. Tea from China has been found to be high in heavy metals and cadmium. Their are many pesticides and herbicides found on non organic teas.
Sources of EPCG, I got mine from nuts like walnuts and hickory nuts and beans especially legumes like peas.
Green tea can be hepatotoxic if consumed in high amounts. So moderation is the key with green tea.
Leaky gut, toxins especially aluminum in vaccines, fluoroquinolones, glyphosate and glufonisate can cause glycosylation issues. This has been found to be a problem in IC.
Vaccinations, tick born illness and toxins like fluroquinolones, fluoride, lead and mercury can raise substance P levels. The symptoms are burning in the skin, especially in the scalp area and down the spine. Burning or tingling nerves. Substance P increases at night so symptoms get worse at night. If levels get too high it can cause the body to start attacking itself. Feverfew, chamomille, daisy and baking soda lower substance P.
Mycoplasmas are hard to detect and can cause problems. Up to 80% of vaccinations are believed to be contaminated with mycoplasmas.
I know it is hard to get over the trauma of our past and things that may have happened through our life. But studies have shown trauma can cause interstitial cystitis. It is very important to let negative things that have happened in our lives make us stronger. If not then the one who caused the trauma still has control by mentally victimizing us over and over again in our minds. We need to take that back and not give anyone that kind of power.
When you have gotten all things addressed the histamines, mast cells, metabolic issues , inflammation and high substance P levels and learned to deal with stress and past trauma and the IC is still present then the brain is stuck in the shed and repair cycle. This can be caused by the pain in the bladder it signals the brain something is wrong. Many have had success with botulin toxin. It numbs the bladder for a while giving the brain time to reset. Some IC can be caused by spinal cord injury. This may help with that also.
Cox is over expressed in those with IC. Natural COX inhibitors help reduce the severity of IC it is also a common cause of leaky gut and is why many with IC have digestive issues. Inflammation also causes over expression of COX.
APF was found to be high in those with IC. I research this and found that lacking certain commensal bacteria ,inflammation and high histamines caused this. By using a suppository made of coconut oil with the strain of bacteria needed many found relief. It is also why many with IC have vuvldynia.
This study showed that real life experiences where more accurate the clinical research on finding effective treatments.
Many have had good result with cannabinoids but with the metabolic issues I have it made me worse.
High adrenaline levels can be caused by many toxins especially GMOs and the toxins used on them. This can result in IC.
This is a study of the many issues that can effect the bladder. It also shows why so many are effected differently and each has a variety of different symptoms.
Environmental factors determine who will be prone to IC more then genetics.
Many who have IC have been found to be deficient in Cathelicidin. This is why vitamin D helps with IC. For those who are not converting their vitamin D to D3 you may want to supplement with D3 instead.
Cathelicidin deficiency inhibits our ability to fight pathogens. GMOs, fluoride,fluoroquinolones,mercury, lead, aluminum,glyphosate and glufonisate inhibit our ability to convert vitamin D which would result in an inability to fight infection. Those who have high levels of these substances may benefit from taking vitamin D3.
Butyrate found in butter and ghee and produced when we eat inulin (hard to digest fiber) increases Cathelicidin.
If you do not get inflammation addressed then your ability to make Cathelicidin will be inhibited no matter what your vitamin D status is.
If the ability to produce Cathelicidin is not inhibited and you are producing too much Cathelicidin then you can develop thrombosis (blood clotting) and will develop more inflammation. Homeostasis is the goal. Do not over do things.
TH2 cytokines down regulate Cathelicidin so if you are TH2 dominant you will be deficient in Cathelicidin. This can cause skin issues to develop. So balancing our T cells is important.
Vaccine injury can raise zonulin levels, leaky gut caused by GMOs and toxins can also raise zonulin levels which can lead to IC. Also antibiotics and glyphosate can kill our good gut and bladder bacteria which regulates our tight junction protein layers which leads to IC. So in other words modern processed food can lead to IC. To find out more on GMOs look at my post on them.
Chemicals especially farm chemicals on our food, drugs especially fluorquinolones and many toxins can cause inflammation in the bladder which causes endothelin-1 over expression. This can lead to interstitial cystitis. If you look at IC research many of the things found in our foods and given as medication is used to cause ischemia-reperfusion in lab animals. This causes blood flow in the bladder to be disrupted which leads to IC. Endothelin-A agonist helps reduce the severity but it will not get rid of the problem. It is not mentioned in this study but Endothelin-A is a protein in a family that encodes histone acetyltransferases (HATS) and plays an important role in chromatin remodeling which is involved in DNA remodling and cell apoptosis (death) . Histones play a role in cell cycle progression and development. It controls endothelial growth. Over expression of ET-A increases inflammation. Withaferin A decreases ET-1 which may help with the inflammation and over expression of ET-1. Resveratrol found in grapes skins, grape seed extract and wine reduces ET-1.
When chemical induced ischemia-reperfusion has occurred the estrogen and nicotinic pathways work together to reduce inflammation. 17-B-Estradiol and a nicotinic agonist help reduce inflammation.
Glyphosate, glufonisate, vaccine adjuvants, and heavy metals like mercury and lead can cause damge to the NMDA receptor. This has been found to be common in those with IC. I do not like this study because instead of addressing the cause they want to treat the symptoms which seems to be the main them of allopathic medicine. If I get a chance I will do a post on things that help repair the NMDA receptor. Mugwort, olive oil, CoQ10, P5P, and coconut oil have been found to help.
Some have found that the administration of GAGs have given them temporary relief from IC.
PI3K and mTor are over expressed in IC. Reducing their expression helps with inflammation.
This is a very good site for information on mTor and how to reduce it.
Milk should be avoided it stimulates mtor.
IC can be mistaken for cancer.
Thymoquinone found in many spices helps with IC.
Melatonin helps with IC. Many with Ic have been found to be deficient in melatonin which can be caused by vaccine injury, toxins and even EMFs.
Take some of the articles with a grain of salt each of us is different and each of us has foods we have to avoid which is unique to us and our metabolic and digestive issues. I believe the first article is the best I have found it to be the most accurate.
PARP inhibition helps with toxin induced bladder injury.
Querciten and Rutin are inhibitors of PARP
Heme Oxygenase 1 expression helps reduce the symptoms of IC.
Sunlight increases Heme Oxygenase.
Hypoxia increase Heme Oxygenase. This can be accomplished by breathing into a paper lunch bag but if done incorrect could deprive you of too much oxygen and make you pass out. Do research if you try something like that to see how it can be done safely.
Exercise stimulates HO-1
Lipoxygenase Inhibitors along with Cox inhibitors. helps with IC that has been induce by toxins or drugs.
L-arginine improves bladder control for those who have issues with frequent urination. L-arginine increases NO so those who do not have this problems but have high reactive oxygen species this may make them worse.
A deficiency in PIRT causes excess bladder voiding.
Some have to retrain their bladders once the inflammation and other issues have been addressed.
Infection and metabolic issues can cause raised ammonia levels throughout the body and cause a break down of many things. Since the body gets rid of ammonia through the bladder it causes damage to the bladder. The infection or metabolic issue must be addressed.
Toxins like glufonisate and glyphosate used on our crops can cause high ammonia levels which damages many areas of the body especially the nerves which has been link to IC.
The high ammonia levels will cause raised glutamine levels which will give you headaches especially when you consume foods that are high in glutamine. If you are having issues consuming things that contain glutamine you most likely have high glufonisate or glyphosate levels which comes mainly from eating GMOs and foods that have been dried using those toxins.
I eat honey because it is high in zinc and zinc reduces inflammation and ammonia levels.
Zinc and Carnosine work together.
Carnosine also reduces oxidative stress.
Infections especially tick born illness can raise ammonia and quinolinic acid.
Oxidative stress and hyperammonemia can deplete pirt. This causes and over expression of P2X3 which will cause an over active bladder resulting in frequent urination.
They are experimenting now with things that reduce P2X3 over expression.
Antibiotic use is killing our good gut bacteria and may be contributing to the rise in the number of IC cases.
Acacia gum helped heal my gut. When we have digestive issues it can cause IC by raising histamines and inflammation in the body.
Magnesium Citrate helped me a lot. Magnesium helps reduce inflammation. I used magnesium citrate because it also reduces oxalates. The firs couple of days I took it, it gave me indigestion but the third day I started feeling much better and could not believe how much it reduced my pain.
Histamines have been found to be high in those with IC and it is why so many with IC may have mental issues.
Melatonin reduces mast cells.
Tocotrienols a type of vitmaine E found in palm oil, rice bran oil, wheat germ, barley, saw palmetto and oats lower histamines and substance P. You have to be careful some of those are GMOs and the BT Toxins from GMOs have been found in mothers fetuses and human brains and causes the same symptoms as food poisoning.
Catalase helps restore the antioxident system back to homeostasis but many things that contain it are high sulfur so make sure you do not have sulfation issues. Eating high sulfur foods and meat when you have sulfation issues will make you worse if you do not address it.
Vitamin A deficiency can cause IC
Food sources of vitamin A. Always try to get your vitamins from natural sources, many vitamins are synthetic and have been shown to have many side effects especially folic acid it causes cancer and damages the NMDA receptor. Folate which is natural does the opposite.
Cat’s Claw helped me. Phytoestrogen has been shown to reduce IC symptoms. Cat’s Claw contains Phytoestrogen is most likely why it helps.
Some have said honey bush tea has helped them.
phytoestrogens are why Peuraria Mirifica and Maca root reduce symptoms of IC.
Malva is in the mallow family. Most plants in the Mallow family reduce inflammation and help heal the gut and tight junction protein layers in the gut and bladder. I grow the cheese plant which is in the mallow family and has the same benefits as marshmallow root.
Toxins, vaccine injury, GMOs and stress can increase glutamate levels which can make IC worse. Plants that helped calm me like honeysuckle, yarrow, opium lettuce and wild daisy really helped me a lot.
Tick born illness and mycoplasma inhibit IL 10, Our bodies use IL 10 to detect infections and rid the body of them. Then it will reduce inflammation. Inhibiting IL 10 causes excess inflammation. This cause the body to be unable to recognize the pathogen. When this happens the body will release hydrogen pyroxide which is a last ditch effect to remove the pathogens from the body. This cause a lot of damage throughout the body. This is why it is important to reduce inflammation and to support the function of IL 10. Hydrogen pyroxide will break down the tight junction layers in the gut, blood brain barrier and bladder. This cause inflammation in all those areas. When the tight junction layer has been effected in the digestive system food allergies and intolerances will develop. Warning increasing IL 10 can lead to weight loss.
Blocking Tumor Necrosis Factor will upregulate IL 10
Ways to inhibit TNF , they recommend ketosis. That worked great for me but those with type 1 diabetes that can result in death.
Lactococcus Lactis found in some cheeses and buttermilk increase IL 10
Sepsis can result in IC. This is caused from being given too high of a dose of antibiotics which kills of pathogens and fungus to quickly. The body becomes overwhelmed with endotoxins or afloxin resulting in a lot of damage throughout the body.
Methylene Blue which can be found in the urinary section at most stores and pharmacies help with sepsis but should not be taken if you are anemic or G6PD deficient. If you have high levels of glyphosate or glufonisate you can be G6PD deficient.
This site has a list of the various forms of Methylene Blue so you will know what to look for on the package.
Atropine also helps with sepsis and has the added benefit of detoxing glufonisate, glyphosate and orthophosphates.
Moringa is good stuff it helps with just about everything.
Proteus Mirabilis is acquire in hospitals usually from catheters and is one of the hardest to get rid of.
Epilobium helps with antibiotic resistant strains of infection. Known as willow herb.
Willow herb also reduces inflammation.
Helps restore antioxidant homeostasis.
Calcium supplements cause urinary tract infection can also raise oxalates. That is why I get my calcium from stinging nettles. If you eat fruits and vegetables you should be getting enough calcium. Most bone lose is caused by either silica or magnesium deficiency. Calcium deficiency is rare.
Joe Pye also known as Gravel Root helps. It is a calcium channel blocker also though and has an alkaloid that can build up in the body so should not be used in high doses or for extended periods of time.
There are toxins in feminine products that can cause IC. Organic or some alternative should be used. Cotton feminine products are from GMO cotton which contains BT Toxin which can cause many problems. This was not mentioned in the article.
I am not big on pharmaceuticals because they treat the symptoms not the cause but many of my friends have said Tempol has helped them. Please research first if you decide to try this.
If you read about glyphosate you will see how it could cause IC. Glufonisate is Bayers version of glyphosate and causes the same health problems. If you read my GMO post you will see that our food is heavily contaminated.
I seen many take metformin. They would do really good at first then get much worse so I don’t trust it. It also causes vitamin B12 deficiencies which can lead to permanent nerve damage.
Things that can cause frequent urination at night.
Many have had good results with lactoferrin. It helps the good bacteria get reestablished. It is not mentioned in the article but it chelates the bad iron from the body and builds up heme by giving the body good iron.
Lactoferrin has been found to break up biofilms and so has serrapeptase. Serrapeptase also breaks up scar tissue but can cause problems if taken in very high doses. It helped me a lot. Biofilms make many infections impervious to the immune system and even drugs.
This article mentions nattokinase. I did not use it because it has estrogen like effects. I figured boobs would not look good on a man.
I got candida from antibiotics. I fell for the alkazing myth and things got much worse for me so I started doing the opposite. Lo and behold it started going away. Candida likes and alkaline environment and will actually switch from commensal (friendly) to a pathogen if the alkalinity of digestive system or bladder gets too alkaline. Our bladder and digestive tract is supposed to be acidic. We have bacteria that keeps our bladder and digestive system at the correct PH. If we are deficient in those bacteria then our digestive system and bladder can become alkaline promoting infection of many types of pathogens especially candida.
Japanese Honeysuckle helped me a lot. It is the one with the white and yellow flowers. Most other types of honey suckle are poisonous. It reduces inflammation and has pain killing abilities. It made me sleepy but the baby does of baby benadryl does that to me.
Golden rod helped me. It kills pathogens reduces pain and inflammation. I herxed the first time I used it. This is the European Golden Rod but Solidago Canadensis found in the US has just about the same properties.
I hate to say this because I love salt but salt makes things worse. But studies have shown that if you use see salt you do not crave as much salt because it has more nutrients needed by the body.
Flavocoxid is a combination of ingredients. I took these ingredients separately on my own and they healed me so fast that all heck broke loose from my nerves and muscles waking up when my blood flow improved and my nerves woke up. I got bad muscle spasms and my nerves felt hot. After about three days though I felt great. And each day after I could actually feel it healing me. I did not know about this supplement that already had them in it.
Even newer stuff.
If we do not get enough cholesterol we cannot heal. Cholesterol is needed by the cells to protect us from inflammation, infections, our heart , brain, liver and kidneys cannot function without it. Statins destroy brain cells in a way they cannot repair it almost petrifies them because they deprive them of cholesterol. Read my post on how high oxLDL is a symptom not a cause.
Sculletaria heals things all through the body. I used American Sculletaria which is much more powerful. I would not recommend that because it healed me too quickly and when things started waking from the nerves healing and improved blood flow all heck broke loose for a few days.
I am putting this here for a note, I have not gotten to research it. Pathogens in the bladder induce Indoleamine 2.3-Dioxygenase in the bladder which inhibits immune response.
Antiphospholipid Syndrome can present in the renal system. This can be cause by tick born illness, vaccine injury or farm chimicals in food especially glyphosate.
Thuja helps with cystitis but there are better source then white cedar. Mugwort and wormwood are much better alternative sources of Thuja.
Excess lipid peroxidation can cause many problems, high oxLDL, high ammonia , inflammtion, the list goes on and on. These naturals inhibit lipid peroxidation.
Inhibiting 5-Lo reduces inflammation. Mediterranean Sage an invasive weed in the western states of the United States ihibits 5-Lo.
Oxeye Daisy kills pain and reduces inflammation. I seen no studies on it being a sedative but when I drink it I end up going to sleep every time.
Ebselen is one of the few drugs I would take it reverses sepsis, reduces oxidative stress, heals the brain and bladder and does many other things. Unfortunately they will only prescribe it to people with psychosis.
A list of foods and their oxalate levels. I noticed a few of the low oxalate were GMO which is worse if you read my page on that.
I put five drops of tea tree oil in about 10 ounces of jojoba oil and it really reduced the burning and rashes on my skin. Tea tree reduces histamines and substance P. Do not consume it though.
Proteolytic enzymes helped me a lot. They have many benefits like reducing inflammation, aiding with digestion, kill parasites. They made it so I could eat.
St. Johnswort reduces pain inflammation and has antioxidant properties. I seen studies that claimed it was toxic to the liver. Those studies where vague as to methodology and lacking data. Most studies I have read on St Johnswort showed it to be non toxic and does the opposite it actually reduce inflammation in the liver.
This is a good article on reducing inflammation with food and why they work.
Antibiotics, GMOs and herbicides kill our gut bacteria. Certain gut bacteria use tryptophan to modulate our immune system. We become prone to infection if we are lacking those bacteria, especially candida infection. Consuming foods high in tryptophan helps restore them and our immune function. Our adaptive immunity comes from our gut bacteria. When we are low or deficient in certain ones we can have either an over active immune response or non at all. This also protects us from inflammation.
Tryptophan was found to be low in those with MCAD.
Foods high in tryptophan to feed the gut bacteria. Many of the things mentioned are dried using glyphosate and glufonisate especially beans and grains so make sure you eat organic. Those destroy our good gut bacteria making us prone to many pathogens.
The metabolic issues I had made it impossible for me to eat meat because of the high phenylalanine content, potatoes and other things high in phenylalanine were out also. I had to eat a vegetarian diet for a very long time until I corrected my metabolic issues. If you have sulfation issues or upregulated BH4 or CBS pathways your will develop very high ammonia levels because sulfite levels rise very high and causes you body to be unable to recycle phenylalanine. So as it is used the biproducts produced build up in the blood stream and ammonia is one of them.
Though NO can cause damage in the body it is needed to maintain health. So we do not want to reduce it too low. It will cause many negative health issues if we do. That is why many develop high blood pressure when under oxidative stress because it depletes NO. Homeostasis should always be the goal.
Olive leaves are very good for fighting infection but if you have a high metabolism they are not good for you. They speed up the metabolism. Olive oil has many benefits. It activates the Nrf2/keap1 pathway which is a key part of our antioxidant system that protects our cells. If you have pyrole issues you will have gall bladder pain and/or indigestion when you consume oils. Supporting sulfation will helps with pyrole issues. Also reducing histamines and inflammation help correct issues with pyroles.
Rehmania raises blood pressure. I have cardititis and this help get my blood pressure up which made me feel much better. I did not take it everyday though because homeostasis should always be the goal. It also reduces oxidative stress.
Before I got my gut straightened out my brain was a mess. We need butyric acid but our limited diets prevent us from eating the foods that contain it like milk products and the plants that contain the fiber many of us cannot eat because of sulfation issues which many plants that contain inulin which our gut bacteria produce butyric acid from are high in sulfur. Onions are one example of that and I was so lactose intolerant that milk products were definitely out. The solution for me was to make ghee. All the lactose is removed but the butyric acid remains. It made a world of difference in my health I had more energy and could think so much clearer. Since I have my gut healed and my metabolic issues straightened out I can eat pretty much anything.
If you have chemical sensitivities or sensitivity to odors then you have glucuronidation issues. Calcium-D-Glucarate helps address that. I had problems with this bad. Even the candle section in stores would make me ill and even affect my bladder.
If you have metabolic issues and try to change to a healthier diet it could backfire. We must take the nutrients that support those pathways. If not there will be a lot of food we will not be able to eat.
P53 role in cystitis.
This is only an abstract but it list illnesses caused by high TH17 levels. Vaccine adjuvants, many farm chemicals and heavy medals can cause high TH17 levels. Tick born illness can also if the endotoxin levels get high enough. If you notice you will see many commonalities with IC.
Antibiotics and farm chemicals kill our good gut bacteria that protects us from infection.
We have commensal bacteria that are related to pathogenic. When they are killed by antibiotics or farm chemicals we lose that protection and become prone to illness from the pathogenic ones. Ever notice how many will eat the same contaminated food but only some of them would get ill. They liked the commensal relatives of the pathogenic bacteria so were not protected. Unfortunately the only probiotic I found that contains the commensal E Coli strain is VSL#3 and it is very expensive.
These studies show the importance of our gut bacteria to the health of our organs throughout the body.
Modern day chemicals in our food supply and antibiotics can ruin our ability to produce FUT2 enzymes. These modulate our immune system and keep our gut bacteria balanced and happy. If we are not producing FUT2 enzymes then we cannot fight infection and our gut bacteria will get out of balance and we will even become deficient in some bacteria. Many will take probiotics with not results for this very reason.
If we are FUT2 deficient it indicates that we are lacking Bacteroides Thetaiotaomicron which is supposed to be one of the most numerous of the gut bacteria. If we are lacking this bacteria we will have trouble eating certain carbs and cannot break down many types of fiber.
They claim it is a genetic issues but other gut bacteria regulate FUT2 secretion
This is a list of gut microbiotia and their effects on the digestive system and the body.
What complicates things is that the medical community cannot identify the difference between commensal and pathogenic. Often times they give antibiotics that kill bacteria we need. When we get an infection from a bacteria that is usually commensal it means something is out of balance in the body. Instead of looking for the problem they kill the commensal bacteria that we need.
Getting chlamydia shows there is a deficiency in Lactobacilli which balances the ph of our bladders and digestive system. Most pathogens cannot survive in an acid ph which is what the bladder and digestive system are supposed to be.
So an imbalance in our bacteria causes us to become prone to urinary tract infection.
Our bacteria even protects us from respiratory infection.
If you notice these are receptors involved in IC. This study shows that our good bacteria regulate our gene expression. It is the bacteria we inherit from our parents that determines what illnesses we will be prone to. Not only that but the foods we eat determines which genes they turn off and on.
Here is where it can get confusing. Some strains of lactobacillus are pathogenic. We have to make sure the strains we take are ones that reduce inflammation and histamines. We need inflammation and histamines for the body to heal and repair but when there is and imbalance in our gut bacteria the strains that cause them become more numerous and histamine and inflammation levels become too high.
Germ theory has been proven wrong repeatedly yet they base their research on vaccinations on it. Our gut bacteria modulate and train our immune system. So vaccinating overrides our ability to develop immunity which means the only thing it would do is confuse the body.
Our gut bacteria even regulate our biological clock.
Our gut bacteria determine if we will be obese or not.
Our gut bacteria regulate our mood and emotions.
An imbalance in our bacteria in our lungs can result in lung disease.
We even have a gut bone axis and our bone is effected by our gut bacteria.
Our gut bacteria even regulate our cholesterol levels.
This is why it is very important to get polyphenols, oligosaccharides and polysaccharides in our diets. It feeds our beneficial bacteria which promotes better health. There are myths about the sugars in foods like fruits and vegetables feeding candida when it becomes pathogenic but the opposite is true. Much of the false information out there drives me to believe that the pharmaceutical companies put it out there to keep people on a hamster wheel of poor health so they will have a steady customer.
Not only do we need to feed the good gut bacteria but our diets to manipulate our gut bacteria needs to be unique to each of us. A diverse diet gives us a diverse microbiome which protects our health.
The myth I see that is the most damaging is people being told to avoid all fats. They are a necessary nutrient for good health.
Another myth is to avoid carbohydrates. It is a good way to develop autoimmune disease. We need a variety in our diet.
I find it strange that almost all science surrounding modern medicine is being proven wrong by science that is thousands of years old.
We have commensal virome in our gut. What happens when antibiotics or farm chemicals kill them. How do we replace them and restore out health?
Our gut virome also regulate our immune system.
Our gut bacteria even secret non toxic antibiotics that do not kill the good bacteria like man made antibiotics do.
This is a study on female urinary biome and health.
Male urinary biome and health.
If you are prone to E Coli you may be lacking the phage or virus that protects us from it.
If you get tick born illness, yep lacking gut phages.
Peroxisomes secreted by our gut bacteria protect us from excess reactive oxygen species generated during oxidative stress.
This is a list of microbiota and their functions.
This is a symposium on microbiome.
When I ate anything including fruit I got very ill, probiotic yeast help a lot with that. It would feel like a brick was setting in my stomach after I ate. This helped me a lot. Also if I ate carbohydrates I would feel ill this corrected that also.
If you have problems eating dairy these are the strains needed. I had very bad dairy issues. Some of the strains that break down dairy also break down carbohydrates.
These are the strains needed for urinary and bladder issues.
If your microbiome imbalance persist it may be from your sexual partner.
These articles mention the probiotics to avoid if you have high histamines. The second link mentions the ones that reduce histamines.
It should be clear to most now that the genetic theory of inherited imperfections causing illness is not accurate.
Monsanto now owned by Bayer and has dropped the name but when the company was Monsanto they colluded with the government to hide the harm their products are doing.
What it does to the enviroment.
Symptoms of high glyphsate or glufonisate levels.
What it may be doing to your health.
Possible risk involved with eating GMO foods.
Studies have shown that most of our food contains high levels of these toxins.
Many studies show we have high levels of glyphosate in us.
So now you can see the importance of testing for glyphosate or glufonisate.
Take all the evidence below and compare it to the rise in many health issues and you will see what is causing many of them.
Neurological deaths increased as glufonisate and glyphosate usage increased.
There is obvious conditional bias in biotechs research.
Going by Monsantos standards all of Monsanto’s studies are invalid.
GMO are regualed as a pesticide by the FDA.
Studies showing the dangers of GMOs get ignored.
The effects of the toxins are lethal.
Studies showing the dangers of any of Monsanto’s products are ignored.
GMO producers try to pass off privately funded studies as independent studies.
Why are the GMO producers working so hard to keep everything a secret?
There has been proven conflicts of interest in the research on the safety of GMOs.
GMO increase herbicide and pesticide use.
GMOs raise production cost.
GMOs cost farmers more and create super bugs.
One of biotechs biggest advocates have had many studies retracted and some involved GMO research
The positive hype surrounding GMOs is based on studies that have been retracted
There was a hidden viral gene found in GMOs
They are not sure what the affects on humans or plants will be.
They know there is the risk of horizontal gene transfer. So what if the genes transfer to those consuming the GMO food. Now their bodies will become there own enemy.
I believe it is one of the contributing factors behind autoimmune disease.
They are trying to fix a problem that doesn’t exist. There has always been food that sits and rots. The real problem is food wastage.
Now the proven harm GMOs are doing.
Glyphosate used to dry beans and grains and used to spray on crops that are RoundUp ready causes many health issues. Bayer has their version called Glufonisate and it causes the same problems.
Destroys bone marrow
Can cause menningitis.
Can cause erectile dysfunction
Can make a man sterile
How do we know this didn’t cross pollinate with other corn?
Can cause heart issues.
Can cause high dopamine levels.
Can cause convulsions.
Causes excess oxidative stress and makes aluminum more toxic.
Causes fatty liver
GMO cause celiac disease.
Causes cell division disfunction.
Causes bladder cancer.
Exposure to farm chemicals in children’s food raises the risk of cancer.
Glyphosate depletes nutrients from the body. I will provide the supporting research later.
BT Toxin is cytotoxic to our cells and adding glyphosate or glufonisate makes things worse.
BT Toxin cause an immune respronse. Which causes gut inflammation.
All environmental chemicals have effects on our guts especially antibiotics which glyphosate was originally patented as.
This can lead to many metabolic disorders.
Can also lead to mental disorders.
Causes fatty liver.
Glyphosate is toxic to the liver.
GMOs cause symptoms similar to food poisoning.
Glyphosate impedes our cells ability to repair.
My alter the DNA of children.
Glyphosate can cause blood disorders.
The health effects of BT Toxins have not been researched properly.
This covers all the illnesses glyphosate and toxins like it can cause.
The body mistakes glyphosate for glycine.
Glyphosate combines with heavy metals to become more toxic.
BT Toxin is toxic to our bodies and now it grows inside the GMO food.
Plants regulate our gene expressions can you imagine what GMOs are doing.
Glyphosate causes neurodegeneration.
Even in small amounts it is toxic.
Is the cause in the rise of gout.
Crosses the placenta.
Glyphosate is an endocrine disruptor.
Now you know the real reason wheat is toxic.
How to detox glyphosate
Those who believe in Jehovah God I have put scriptures at the bottom to support our stance.
I left the studies that they claimed were proven wrong because they were not proven wrong they changed the definition of the many mental conditions caused by vaccinations also they put up smoke screens by saying vaccinations trigger autism they don’t cause it. That is like saying bullets do not kill a person it is their inherent weakness to the bullet that causes death or injury. They also blame the vaccine injuries on polymorphisms and comorbities and again saying vaccinations were a trigger but not the cause. Who doesn’t have a gene mutation or an existing infection The sad part is vaccine injury can take years to fully manifest itself so most do not even know they have been injured by the vaccination. When they develop chronic fatigue syndrome, arthritis, fibromyalgia, autoimmune disease, or mental problems they are told the cause is unknown. The pharmaceutical companies profit from the illnesses along with the medical organizations because they have created a steady customer. All this is at the expense of the tax payer who has to support those injured and disabled by vaccinations. Many of those in positions of authority at the FDA, USDA, CDC, and IDSA used to work for the pharmaceutical industry. Also the former presidential administration and the president place many from biotech and the pharmaceutical industry in positions of power. Most biotech firms are owned by pharmaceutical companies. It is clear our government is run by the pharmaceutical industry. There is a lot of profit in vaccination for the pharmaceutical industry and doctors. Once injured a steady customer has been created.
I am going to cover symptoms of vaccine injury so that people will know what to look for and report it. The government says as little as 10% of adverse vaccine events get reported. Many medical professions claim it is much lower. So that means most adverse reactions to vaccinations are not being reported. Most doctors will not report it and will try to cover up the vaccine injury or death. The weight of reporting it will go to the person injured or the parents of the child injured. Information on reporting vaccine injury.
First symptoms of vaccine injury. High Fever Skin, Rash High Pitched screaming or frequent crying. Excessive sleeping or or in ability to sleep. Convulsions or seizures. Loss of muscle control. Nerve problems can occur throughout the body. Physical or Mental regression. More serious symptoms One side of face, or eye or lip may droop. Sudden behavior change. Frequent rashes. autoimmune disease allergies or food intolerance. Gut issues Disproportionate growth of face. Will not make eye contact. Multiple Sclerosis, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Muscoskeletal Disorders, Gastro intestinal issues.
Vaccine adjuvants are designed to cause inflammation, almost all of them are known carcinogens. They can stay in the body for years the unproven theory is that the inflammation will stimulate an immune response. That inflammation is also found to cause autism.
This study was designed to see why infant mortality was higher in some areas then others. The fact that they did this study shows they know vaccinations kill. This study also proves it is proper diet, sanitary practices and access to clean water that lowers infant mortality not vaccinations.
How endotoxins are measured in vaccinations.
Vaccinations spread disease.
Vaccinations cause auto immune disease.
The effects of toxins in vaccinations is well documented. Even the small amount in fluorescent bulbs is considered hazardous. http://www3.epa.gov/epawaste/hazard/wastetypes/universal/lamps/faqs.htm Msds
vaccinations are causing diseases to mutate in dangerous ways.
The HPV vaccine is one of the most dangerous.
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23902317 Vaccinations kill.
If vaccines do not harm or kill why does the government give vaccine manufacturers immunity. Why do they have a vaccine injury reporting and compensation system? Why did the government pass a bill to give vaccine manufacturers immunity from liability for the ill affects of vaccines? Why does the government have a vaccine injury compensation fund?
These are question you should ask your doctor before you vaccinate.
Vaccinations have been used for eugenics. They have research using vaccinations for that purpose. Do you think things have changed. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buck_v._Bell This link has links to documents about US EUGENICS. https://www.uvm.edu/~lkaelber/eugenics/
Our government has no qualms about injuring us.
Vaccinations do not give immunity.
Strange infections, they don’t even look at vaccinations being the common tie.
They start vaccinating for a disease shortly after outbreaks start
Vaccinations injure and kill.
Vaccinations are contaminated with pathogens.
Vaccinations contain foreign DNA and albumin which can cause autoimmune disease and could carry pathogens that cannot be detected. Just look at the ingredients in vaccinations.
Some vaccinations contain toxins which has been shown to cause mental disorders.
They contain aluminum which causes all kinds of health problems.
Reading this made me see that vaccinations set you up for autoimmune disease. There is foreign DNA in them which sets an immune response off. Now add the excitotoxins which don’t leave the body and causes a steady cytokine response. Now that your immune system is a wreck throw in a pathogen like one of the herpes virus or Lyme and now you have autoimmune disease.
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2665673/ vaccine damage
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25882168 Shingles vaccine causes depression.
How about antiphospholipid syndrome for vaccine injury.
They skew the facts to scare people.
vaccine causes depression.
It covers Lysomal dysregulation, macropgac myofasciitis, encephalomyelitis, lymphoma, multiple sclerosis, autoinflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants syndrome, fribromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome. Many are not told they are vaccine injured they are told the cause is unknown. If you suffer from those things you may be vaccine injured.
The cause of Gulf War/Asia Syndrome
This study shows how aluminium adjuvants travel through the body to exert their toxicity.
More on vaccines spreading disease.
There are thousands of adverse reactions to vaccinations. Too numerous for medical professionals or customers to learn. The pharmaceutical industry does not profit from healthy people. There is more incentive in making people unhealthy, please protect your children they see them as dollar signs. Once injured or maimed by vaccinations they have created a steady customer who has to seek medical treatment for the many forms of injury vaccinations cause. The injury isn’t always obvious it can start out as a food intolerance or allergy, even something as sudden behaviour change or difficulty sleeping. http://www.vaccinationcouncil.org/2013/10/19/revelations-by-shawn-siegel/#.dpuf
It should be standard practice for vaccination history to be checked when someone especially a child has an unexplained illness or goes to the emergency room for sudden illness.
They accuse parents of being paranoid or even of seeking attention. They accuse them of abusing their child and children have even been taken from their parents because of vaccine injury. Learn to report vaccine injury because most doctors won’t and do not know how. Doctors have no training concerning vaccinations. Most don’t even know the ingredients in a vaccinations. If they offer a vaccination ask to see the vaccine insert. Do not sign a vaccine refusal paper that can be used against you. They state things in a way that it can be used to show child abuse.
Knowing all this we are to treat our body as our temple. Vaccinations clearly violate that law. They use human fetal tissue in vaccinations. God does not condone in the murder of anyone especially not a baby. So vaccinations clearly violate God’s laws.
1 Corinthians 6:18Flee immorality. Every other sin that a man commits is outside the body, but the immoral man sins against his own body. 19Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? 20For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body.
Exodus 20:13 “You shall not murder.
The moment a child is conceived God considers it a life.
Psalms 139:For You formed my inward parts;
You wove me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Wonderful are Your works,
And my soul knows it very well.
15 My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth;
16 Your eyes have seen my unformed substance;
And in Your book were all written
The days that were ordained for me,
When as yet there was not one of them.
Exodus 21:22 “If men struggle with each other and strike a woman with child so that she gives birth prematurely, yet there is no injury, he shall surely be fined as the woman’s husband may demand of him, and he shall pay as the judges decide.23 But if there is any further injury, then you shall appoint as a penalty life for life,
Whether we know God’s law or not he built a conscience in us. We have no excuse for putting children in danger and ourselves.
Romans 2:12 For all who have sinned without the Law will also perish without the Law, and all who have sinned under the Law will be judged by the Law; 13 for it isnot the hearers of the Law who are just before God, but the doers of the Law will be justified. 14 For when Gentiles who do not have the Law do instinctively the things of the Law, these, not having the Law, are a law to themselves, 15 in that they show the work of the Law written in their hearts, their conscience bearing witness and their thoughts alternately accusing or else defending them,16 on the day when, according to my gospel, God will judge the secrets of men through Christ Jesus.
Those still getting vaccinated still have time to repent. Our God is a merciful and forgiving God.
Luke 5:31 And Jesus answered and said to them, “It is not those who are well who need a physician, but those who are sick. 32 I have not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance.”
Isaiah 1:18 “Come now, and let us reason together,”
Says the Lord,
“Though your sins are as scarlet,
They will be as white as snow;
Though they are red like crimson,
They will be like wool.
I have done my best to warn others of the harm of vaccines and to warn them of how God would view things. So my hands are clean there is no blood on them.
Acts 20: 26 Therefore, I testify to you this day that I am innocent of the blood of all men. 27 For I did not shrink from declaring to you the whole purpose of God.
Isaiah 26:21 For behold, the Lord is about to come out from His place To punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity;And the earth will reveal her bloodshed And will no longer cover her slain.
Very soon it will be too late. This is very very near.
Revelation 6:12 I looked when He broke the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth made of hair, and the whole moon became like blood; 13 and the stars of the sky fell to the earth, as a fig tree casts its unripe figs when shaken by a great wind. 14 The sky was split apart like a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. 15 Then the kings of the earth and the great men and the commanders and the rich and the strong and every slave and free man hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains; 16 and they *said to the mountains and to the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the presence of Him who sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb; 17 for the great day of their wrath has come, and who is able to stand?”
Cholesterol Dysregulation/High LDL
This is not medical advice I am sharing what I have learned from me fellow suffers. I am posting this to give others some ideas of things they could research. If you are ill you should see a doctor. Make sure if you are using alternative methods of healing you inform your doctor. I believe before getting treated for any pathogen you should always do a detox protocol first because most damage from being ill is from the endotoxins and exotoxins produced by the pathogens especially when they are dying off. If you have high Low Density Lipid cholesterol levels (LDL) then you most likely have an auto immune disease brought on by Vaccine Injury, Lyme Disease, toxins in the environment, many pathogens can cause Cholesterol Dysregulation, GMOs are known to destroy our guts which causes autoimmune disease and cholesterol dysregulation. Also bad eating habits, to much sugar causes inflammation which can cause oxidative stress which will raise oxLDL levels. Processed foods are high in oxLDL. Cooking increases oxLDL levels in food. Eat raw when possible. Eating processed foods. LDL is oxidized Cholesterol. If you have a lot of oxidative stress , like working too much, stress in our environment, toxins. Many things can cause oxidative stress. This causes the cholesterol to be oxidized much quicker. Gut problems can also cause high LDL levels. If we are having problems with our digestive system then our bile production will decline.
Endothelial Cells help in bile production, if they are not healthy then our production of bile declines decreasing our ability to remove LDL from our bodies. There is also a layer called Tight Junction Protein layer if it is damaged particles can get into our blood stream causing a histamine response which can cause inflammation throughout the body which can result in many problems, autoimmune disease, interstitial cystitis the list goes on and on the inflammation can interfere with many metabolic functions which could cause a rise in LDL levels. It isn’t much how much cholesterol we take in but the type and our environment that affects our LDL levels. Liver and Bladder problems brought on by all the above can cause Cholesterol Dysregulation.
If the Nrf2 pathways become blocked it will cause high LDL levels. Especially if the Pentose Phosphate Pathway becomes hindered or blocked. Another thing that can cause Cholesterol Dysregulation and this one surprised me but is also affected by autoimmune disease so it shouldn’t have is the Lymph Nodes. If they are plugged or infected they cannot help keep the blood cleaned out.
Get plenty of good cholesterol from sources such as coconut oil or avocados. Cholesterol is an antioxidant. If oxLDL is high it is a sign of excess oxidative stress or inflammation and the body is trying to protect itself. High oxLDL is a symptom not the cause. Lowering cholesterol will effect the brain and muscles negatively because they cannot function without it and the brain can suffer permanent damage if it does not get enough cholesterol. When I get a chance I will add the supporting links for these statements. .
Now That We Know The Problem Let’s Try To Solve it. The first thing I would do is work on reducing inflammation and lowering histamines. If you do have gut problems that would be the place to start. Next I would work on the methylation pathways. I covered some of that in my note on detoxing. I covered the CBS pathway also in that note. If it is blocked you will have trouble getting the Nrf2 ( nuclear factor-erythroid 2-related factor 2) pathways opened up because anything that raises gluthione production with cause you to feel ill. Another problem is antioxidants will actually cause you cancer if you take them too often or if the Nrf2 pathways are blocked. Don’t over do it with antioxidants and make sure you work on getting your Nrf2 pathways opened. Now some things that help open the Nrf2 pathway can also stimulate it so you do not want to over do it. When you start feeling better back of a bit. It is a good idea to space your supplements out anyways. Some things that will open the Nrf2 pathways are Oleanic Acid found in Savory and Olive Oil. Taxifolin (dihydroquerciten) also helps open them, it is a super antioxidant and one of the few that doesn’t need the Nrf2 to function. It is like Querciten on steroid. Chaga Mushrooms have Super Oxide Dismutase which helps the body in many areas. It is the only source I know of that the SOD is readily absorbed by the body, all the other sources have a low absorption rate. Do not take too much, raising SOD too high can raise reactive oxygen species which would have the opposite effect.
Cruciferous vegetables are high in sulforapanes which help open and stimulate the Nrf2. Make sure you do not have sulfation issue which can be caused by vaccine inujury , toxins like mercury and glyphosate. This will raise your sulfite levels which will cause high ammonia levels and high reactive oxygen species which causes damage from the oxy radicals being produced.
If NADP (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide Phosphate gets too high then the Pentose Phosphate Pathway could be inhibited. Low doses of Niacin along with Zinc, Vitamin C(too much vitamin C can destroy red blood cells, also man made vitamin C cause oxalates), NAD+, Vitamin D3, Curcumin, Querciten, Resveratol, Another thing that happens is if your methylation pathways aren’t working right or you have and infection your ammonia and hydrogen peroxide levels can go up and it will cause Cholesterol to oxidize. You would think that taking an antioxidant would be the solution but as stated earlier make sure you detox and get your methylation pathways corrected or that can do more harm then good. Now if you worked on your gut and methylation pathways. Then I believe we should work on the liver next. From my research I am lead to believe that oils high in monosatuarated fats produce less LDL when they are subject to heat. Some oil that are supposed to be good for cooking with high heat are. Hazel Nut Oil, Macadamia Nut Oil, Peanut Oil, Safflower Oil, Sesame Seed Oil, and Rice Bran Oil. Sun Flower is supposed to be one of the best but it scares me because Sunflower is used to pull toxins out of the soil. Canola is supposed to be good but most canola is GMO now. We need to be careful getting too many Omega-6, studies have shown if levels get too high we can develop mental issues even become violent, they can cause endothelial dysfunction which can cause high LDL levels, and cause inflammation.
So now if you worked on the above mentioned problems we are ready to move on to other issues we may have. Avoid Trans-Fats, unsaturated and saturated fats are bad fats and cause oxLDLs to go up. Reduce intake of Corn, Wheat, and processed sugar. They cause inflammation which for various reasons can cause oxLDL levels to go up. Termina Chebula – has many nutrients that help with methylation. Has many antioxidants, has also been shown to fight gum disease. Tyrosine – if you are not methylating properly your body cannot produce it. It is used by your body to build neuro transmitters and various proteins. Good sources are nuts, avocados, bananas, dairy products, beans and seeds. Ginkgo Biloba – improves the bodies use of oxygen but use in moderation, if used too long or in high doses it can damage the liver. Ginkgo Biloba with Raynaulds sysndrome and depression. P5P methylcolbamin molybdenum and manganese 3 times a week. Those should help get the body methylating. When the methylation pathways open the body will start detoxing so you should continue the detox protocols the whole time. This could cause the bladder to become irritated again until the toxin levels are down. Those with certain methylation issues need to research before taking those.
The liver Of course drink good clean Chlorine free water. Chlorine is very toxic to the body and very difficult to remove from the body. Do not use flouride it is pretty much the same thing., If you are having problems with ammonia levels still I would suggest taking bromelain and betaine. Also Bacopa is supposed to helps. Papain is supposed to reduce symptoms of fatty liver. Omega-3 oils also help reduce fatty liver symptoms, I alternate the types of Omega 3s I use because each has it’s own benefits. Inositol Hexaphospate (IP6) is supposed to help clean the renal system out. Rosmarinic Acid, Ginger, Ashwangha, and Boswellia are all supposed to help with lipid peroxidation using these for too long or too much can have side effects. If the Nrf2 pathway is working antioxidants like Pycgenol, Lycopene, Allicin etc help lower lipid peroxidation.
CoQ10 is involved in the processes for producing energy for the cells. I use Ubiuinol it is the unoxidized form of CoQ10. Some things that can improve bile flow are Artichoke , Danshen, Prenylated Chalcone, Yarrow Root, Fennel Seed, Dandelion, Trolox, and Carom Seed have been shown to stimulate bile flow. Hesperetin has been shown to be powerful against lipid peroxidation. Aegle Marmelos is know to inhibit lipid peroxidation. Pinelba has been shown to protect the gut and inhibit lipid peroxidation. Silicon Dioxide, Magnesium, Iron, all help to produce bile, they need glycine and taurine to be bile.
Astanxanthin is another potent antioxidant. It reduces peroxide levels, and can cross the blood brain barrier to reduce swelling and provide the brain with energy. Catalase and Chloine also help to reduce lipid peroxidation. If you are low in choline you may get indigestion after consuming any fats. Golden Rod, Japanese Honeysuckle (most other honeysuckles are toxic) have been known to help clean the renal system out.
Lymph Nodes There are many things that can cause the lymph nodes to become plug. Not enough exercise , bad eating habits, environmental toxins, stress, not enough sleep, pathogens. Mold infections are another culprit. Vaccine and GMO damage the list could go on and on. If you read my not on detoxing then you should be half way to getting the Lymph Nodes cleaned out. There are special exercises and massage techniques that can be used to help clear the lymph nodes out. Also brushing the skin to ex-foliate also helps to clean the lymph glans out. Herbs That May help and Supplements for the Renal System.

This is not medical advice and should not be taken as such. This is for informational and educational purposes. If in doubt don’t, know a plant before you use it.
I found out about this plant by accident. I strange weed started growing in my garden. I posted it in a plant ID group on Facebook and they identified it as Arugula. I tasted it and it had a pleasant taste. Not only that I have Lyme and was having a bad day, after eating it I felt better so decided to find out more about it. I eat it in salads and on pizza but I have heard that it taste good added to dishes you would add oregano to like spaghetti.
It would help those who have myocarditis or thrombosis it prevents blood clotting. It is probably why it made me feel better because I have Lyme carditis.
It helps with neurological issues and would help with autoimmunity because it restores function of IL-10 which Lyme and HIV inhibit.
Arugula helps prevent cancer.
High in antioxidants so it improves skin barrier function.
It contains Isorhamnetin which is also found in onions and other spices. It is renoprotective.
It chelates the bad iron from the body and reduces reactive oxygen species.
It inhibits urease which would help with gastric ulcers. It would also help lower ammonia levels in the body.
Reduces Quinone which would help with sepsis, detox issues, a leaky blood brain barrier and hormone issues.
Would help protect from vaccine injury and other toxins. Protects the thyroid.
It is high in Erucin
Helps with diabetes.
Reduces inflammation because it is high in isothiocyanites.
This is not medical advice it should not be taken as such. I am posting this for informational and educational purposes only. If in doubt do not use a plant if you are not certain of it’s safety or identification.
Angelica is related to carrots and celery so will taste similar. I have Angelica Archangelica and it has a mild celery like taste. Some species of Angelica can cause light sensitivity when eaten. A. Sylvestris is one of them. There are many toxic plants that look very similar so make certain you know this one before you even try to use it. Angelica has a husk like part close to where the stems meet. The one I am familiar with is Angelica Archangelica. It is the only one I have seen. It can get very tall, mine used to be then I cut it down. Every since I cut it down it has not recovered.
Each Angelica species has their own unique benefits. A. Archangelica has free radical scavenging properties, and strong antimicrobial properties and taste good to.
Those with high acetycholine levels should not take it because it can slightly raise acetycholine levels.
Leaves and stems are best for anxiety.
Has hepatoprotective effects.
Prevents skin aging.
Inhibits herpes and coxsackie
If there is poison Hemlock nearby don’t use it . There are claims Angelica and Hemlock can hybridize.
Please make certain you know a plant before using it. If in doubt don’t. This is not medical advice and should not be taken as such.
I have eaten the leaves of wild sarsparilla they do not have much flavor. The roots I have made tea with and I do not think the tea tasted very good but it does have many health benefits. This is in the same family as Panax Gensing and has many of the same chemical properties which means it is adaptogenic.
It is in the same family as gensing so has many of the same properties.
Golden Rod has a peppery taste. I have eaten the root when young and it is tasty but not so tasty when it gets older. It has great detoxing and antibiotic properties. It helps reduce coughing. Most only eat the leaves and flowers. I do know it must kill tick born illness because when I first drank tea made from it I herxed very bad.
In low doses in increases reactive oxygen species and in high doses it lowers them.
Has antibacterial properties
Inhibits cancer growth.

There are many plants in the Smilax family in my area which is the eastern part of the United States. The ones I am familiar with are S. Ecirrhata, and S. Tamnoides. S. Tamnoides has briars on them that really hurt when jagged by them. We also have S. Glauca, S. Herbaceous, S. Rotundifolia, S. Pulverulenta, and S. Pseudochina in my area. I have eaten the leaves and like the taste. Many say the young shoots taste like asparagus. I have never eaten the roots but they are edible.
Most of them have the same phytochemicals that I am familiar with so they will be the ones I list studies on.

There are many species of yellow dock but the one most are familiar with is R. Obtusifolius. It has many benefits from detoxing, providing much needed nutrients especially minerals. The young shouts and leaves can be eaten but become high oxalate when they get older especially when the stems start turning red. Oxalates can cause severe damage in the body and even death. It is why I mainly use the root and only eat the stems once in a while when they are very young. Young first years roots taste good cooked in butter they have kind of a nutty flavor. When they get older they get tough and bitter. I use second year roots to make tea. So separate the seeds from the husk and use them to make flour. I have not been successful with that. I did see a video on Youtube were a young man used a food processor with a dough mixing blade on it to separate them and then put them on a tray an place a fan by them to blow the husk away and it seemed to work pretty well. The health benefits of the root is pretty astounding to me. There are other types of dock with similar benefits but in my area Yellow Dock is the most common. Most Docks have cross bread and share the similar benefits. R. Obtusifolius or very common and have cross bread so much you can barely tell them apart.
The leaves are so high in oxalates eating them can be fatal.
The seeds have antifungal properties.
It is a good source of antioxidants.
Helps with just about every illness it is even good for detoxing.
Since most Yellow Dock has cross bread with Curly Dock I am going to include studies on it.
Has renal protective effects.
Contains nepodin which helps with diabetes
Protects DNA and fights cancer.
The fruit protects from oxidative stress.
The root prevents bone loss so would help with osteoporosis.

I have eaten the seeds but no other parts. This plant is new to me. I know it is Roundup ready because I have seen it in field that had been sprayed by Glyphosate containing products so be careful where you forage it. They can overtake a crop and can reduce production. The fiber is used to make rope. I have seen sites that claimed the seeds can remain viable in the soil for many many years. So when I forage them for the seeds I pull the whole plant out because I get them from a friend who grows his crops organically and uses no harmful chemicals.
The leaves have antioxidant, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. The leaves also reduce hydroxy radicals.
Contain Hibiscuslide C which is antifungal.
The flowers are high in flavoniods.
This is not medical advice and should not be taken as such. If you are not certain don’t, do not use a plant if you do not know it. Make certain of thing you plan on eating or using.
No it is not poisonous. It is very tasty it taste like lemon aid but does not have the bitter after taste. It has many health benefits. The poison sumac is not in the same family. There are many in the Rhus family which is the sumac family. The one I will be talking about is Rhus Typhina which is known as Staghorn Sumac. There are a few other species in my area but Staghorn Sumac has the lowest oxalate levels. The sumac berry of all species is very high in nutrients. It grows very quickly and spreads through the roots or seeds so be careful where you plant it. Since the nutrient content of most of the rhus are the same I will list studies for a variety from the rhus family and it would most likely apply to R. Typhina.
Many cultures have used Sumac berries in their cooking and there are many recipes on the internet on using them in your cooking.

There are many plants that are poisonous that get mistaken for Scutellaria and are sometimes contaminants in supplements containing Skullcap. Two of the most common that can be mistaken for Skullcap that are poisonous are Downy Skullcap (scutellaria icana) and Germander which is in the Teucrium family.
The ones with the most health benefits in the order of effectiveness are Sculletaria Racemosa, Sculletaria Biacalensis, and the one with the best sedative effects is Sculletaria Lateriflore.
They contain biacalein which I have seen miss spelled as biacalin in some studies. It has amazing healing abilities. S Racemosa has the highest levels of biacelain. It has been shown to be very effective against cancer with little side effects. One of the problems I had with Skullcap was that it healed my nerves and improved my blood circulations so fast that all heck broke loose. The best way I can describe it is when you sleep on your arm and it goes to sleep. As the blood flow returns you experience muscle spasms and major tingling. That happened to me for about three days when I started taking it and then I started to feel much much better. I was surprised at how fast it was healing me. I used Sculletaria Racemosa.
Biacalein has been shown to be effective against liver fibrosis and correct metabolic disorders.
Skullcap helps with asthma and COPD.

I have eaten Lady’s Thumb, it does not have much taste but a similar plant that can easily be mistaken for lady’s thumb has a peppery taste. I do not think it has much nutritional value but some studies have shown it reduces symptoms of herpes.
Lady’s Thumb does contain a potassium channel blocker. This means it could slow the heart rate down.
This also gives it cancer fighting properties.
It has antifungal properties.
The polygonum species are all high in antioxidants.
They inhibit xanthine oxidase which would prevent excess reactive oxygen species.
This is for educational purposes and should not be taken as medical advice. If in doubt don’t, make sure you know a plant before you use it. The poison is in the dose. Many plants we eat contain things that could be poisonous if eaten in large amounts but are beneficial when consumed in moderation.
The one I am referring to is Eutrochium Maculatum. They all pretty much have the same phytochemicals. Joe Pye also known as gravel root has a wide variety of health benefits. It fights many pathogens including fungal infection. When I first made a tea of it and was still beginning treatment for my Lyme I herxed bad. It is very potent as an antibiotic.

Erigeron Annuus and Erigeron Philadelphica
I am have written this for educational purposes. If in doubt don’t, make certain you know your plants. This is not medical advice and should not be taken as such.
Known as daisy fleabane. They look very similar and have the same taste and health benefits. They are difficult to tell apart and I often confuse them. So I am not sure which I have picutures of but I like the peppery taste. The older they get the hotter they get. The flowers and roots are very hot almost as hot as a habenaro but the burning does not last as long. It taste like for hot black pepper. The younger the plant the milder it is.

I am have written this for educational purposes. If in doubt don’t, make certain you know your plants. This is not medical advice and should not be taken as such.
Most know them as ground cherries here in Pennsylvania. I have seen the amish plant these among their corn plants. They grow wild in many areas of the U.S. All parts of the plant are toxic except the berries when ripe. The berries are ripe when they turn yellow. They have a slight tart taste, I add them to salsa. If you have eaten a tomatilla then you will know what these taste like because the taste is pretty much the same but the tomatilla is much bigger. Some make pies and jelly from them. I eat them but have not gotten enough to make anything from them. The chipmunks eat them before I can pick them. Many say they taste best if you wait until they drop off the plant. I noticed no difference in taste from ones ripe on the plant and ones that have fallen from the plant.
Though the links are to different varieties of physalis the nutrient and chemical makeup of most of them are pretty much the same so just about any variety of them would have the benefits mentioned in these studies.
Most all of them even tomatillas contain withanolides. Which fight cancer and inflammation.
Helps protect the liver.
Often times in chronic illness glutathione production is inhibited and quinone levels can become very high. Physalis group of plants have phytochemicals that can increase glutathione and the enzyme needed to reduce quinone.

There are many health benefits to Evening Primrose. I found making a tea with the roots really helped in healing my gut. The roots are very high in mucilage. I found all parts of the plant to taste almost identical to ginger and even seem to have the same effects at reducing nausea from my herxing. I make teas from just about all parts of the plant and once in a while put the leaves in my salads.
Evening Primrose is very good at reducing inflammation.
Has been shown to have cancer fighting qualities.
Has been shown to reduce symptoms of menopause.
Though there are many species of Cornus (dogwood) some can be toxic and some can be edible and the leaves and berries are used. The one I am familiar with is Silky Dogwood and I make tea from the leaves and I eat the berries which are plain tasting to me.
The berries are high in quercetin.
The phytochemicals in the berries have been shown to fight cancer.
Canadian Thistle has many benefits but is very invasive. I grow it but I keep it isolated and I cut the tops off before the seeds can spread. It is very very difficult to control if you let it go to seed. It can spread through seeds they are similar to dandelion and how they are dispersed. They also can spread through their roots which are very aggressive.
The leaves are edible but you must make sure you get the pricklys off. The roots are edible but if you eat too many they will make you gassy. It helped me a lot with my fight with Lyme. I do enjoy the taste but it is a lot of work getting the jaggy parts off the leaves. The roots have a lot of health benefits also.
Canadian Thistle has great antiviral and antifungal properties.
Canadian Thistle is a good source of antioxidants.
There are many varieties of Boneset but this is the one I am familiar with. Eupatorium Perfoliatum is the one that is most common in my area. It is great for fighting the cold and flu. It dramatically reduces the duration of both. It has also been shown to fight cancer. I have used it when I have gotten ill and could not believe how fast it worked the results were surprising.
Boneset has many amazing properties but can be toxic so should only be used when very ill and not for extended periods of times. Also something to keep in mind. The dose makes the poison. If you drink too much water you will flush your electrolytes out and can cause a heart attack. So even though many plants contain alkaloids that can harm the body in high doses or if taken in for extended periods of time they can harm the body. Borage is one such food that contains an alkaloid that can build up in the body and harm it.
Some claim drying the herb destroys the toxic alkaloid.
Now to show the benefits if used in moderation.
It reduces inflammation and will lower cholesterol.
Has great antiviral properties.
It has even been shown to be effective against protozoa infection.
Speedwell, common gypsy weed also referred to as Europe Tea.
Has been used for centuries as food, tea and medicinal purposes. There are hundreds of species but the only one I am familiar with is Veronica Officinalis.
Speedwell has been shown to help with gastric ulcers.
Veronica species have antibiotic properties and great antioxidant properties.
Veronica Officinalis has great anti-inflammatory properties.
It is considered invasive in the US but I have not had a problem with it spreading because the deer and ground hogs love it. As a matter of fact because of that I have a difficult time getting it to grow. It is very high in nutrition, I love the taste of the leaves. First year roots are very tasty but second year roots are bitter and tough.
Teasel is amazing it helps with everything, tick born illness, cancer, osteoporosis. The list goes on and on. It really helped with my Lyme Disease. It is great at reducing inflammation. It helps with amyloidosis which can be caused by vaccine injury especially vaccines that contain aluminum. Glyphosate and other farm chemicals can cause it. Also infection can cause amyloid cyst to form. This is a list of the phytochemicals in teasels and what they do.
This is one of the best sites for learning to identify plants and learn their uses.
Uses of teasel.
Most know it as goosegrass, bedstraw or cleavers. It is a super food it is very high in nutrients. It is good at fighting pathogens and cleans the lymphatic tissues out. Some like the taste, I eat it and I can actually feel the health benefits but I do not like the taste. This herb helped me the most out of all of the herbs I consume. There are many species in the Galium family but Aparine is the most common one.
Helps fight cancer
I was looking for a yeast less pizza crust recipe and did not find any that worked very well. Something is different about the yeast now days and when you make dough with the new yeast the product comes out tasting very yeasty. So I decided to make my own recipe. It works pretty good but comes out gooey and can be difficult to spread. I used all organic products because most now days know the harm GMOs and glyphosate will do to our bodies. I gave instructions on how to make it into bread instead of crust in the ingredients list.
To spread the dough I use wax paper that I have dipped in olive oil. It makes spreading it much easier. You can also make bread from this recipe by doubling the amount of baking soda.
2 teaspoons of olive oil
4 cups of organic flour
½ teaspoon of baking soda. To make bread instead of crust increase baking soda to 1 teaspoon.
2 ½ cups of sour milk or yogurt
mix the dry ingredients and then the oil first, then add the milk or yogurt. Grease or oil a pizza pan or cookie sheet. Place the dough in the center of the pan or cookie sheet and spread with wax paper dipping it in olive oil. It makes the dough very easy to spread.
Preheat oven to 425 cook for 10 to 15 minutes until the bottom of the dough just starts to brown. Then remove from the oven and add the toppings. Place back in the oven it will brown the rest of the way as the toppings are cooking. If you cook it too long in the first step it will come out hard.
The only problem I have with this recipe is it does shrink but it taste great.
I really cannot give the recipe for the sauce because when you buy tomato sauce and even the tomatoes I can, can have a different level of acidity. I make half from crushed tomatoes and half tomato sauce. I add oregano, basil, parsley, black pepper, salt, majoram and honey to taste. If you add sweet peppers you do not want to sweeten it because the peppers will sweeten the sauce up.
The benefits of Mugwort are amazing. It has many amazing properties from stimulating the brain to repair to killing pathogens and parasites. It has even been shown to be 1000 times more effective against cancer then chemotherapy. It has been shown to reduce pain and anxiety by raising GABA levels.
The chemical makeup of Mugwort and Wormwood are very similar. Wormwood is Artemisia Absinthium.
Infection and parasitic fighting abilities.
Eco friendly insecticide, I use it in my garden to keep insects off my plants. It also kills many types of molds that can grow on plants.
Helps with colic and asthma.
I have two family members who would do things get caught and would still lie their way out of it even though they were caught red handed. It always baffled me. I seen my mother catch the one family member and thought now I won’t get blamed this time. Nope the family member was amazing at it. They would either project the guilt onto someone else. Or they would tell a fib on someone else and fabricate that they did something even more horrible which would make the person who caught them forgot about what they had done and their attention would turn to the other person.
The other family member would get caught at something and they were much better at it. I have never seen their lies fail. When they would get caught at something they would project the guilt onto their brother. Or they would fabricate that their brother had done something much more horrible. I watched their brother get a lot of beatings and had no idea what he was getting beat for and if I tried to defend him then I would be accused of lying.
They would fabricate things and somehow convince the people that the memories were theirs and that they were real. I would watch the people become convinced of things that were an absolute fabrication. I learned at a young age that people will believe what they want to believe not matter what the truth is. The sad part is one of them works with children now and I often wonder if they convince them they have memories that they really don’t have.
Anyways the reason I have been thinking about this is the damage to the brains of those of us who have been damaged by GMOs, glyphosate, or tick born illness causes memory loss. As our brain heals the memories come back. But I am sure many of you have experienced when someone you care about says remember? You do not want to make them look like a liar but you are uncertain if you do remember correctly. Or if the memory is one they want you to believe is real. We also would be easy victims for those who project their guilt or use diversion tactics to hide their guilt. The sad part is we couldn’t contest it because often times we are uncertain. Some things I can contest because I know there are things I absolutely would not have ever done but what about the gray areas. We could easily be victims of their guilt projection or diversion tactics. That is sad and scary.
They take advantage of false memories and confabulations and are very good at it. Some have had false memories or confabulations occur by well meaning people asking certain questions but those who project or divert their guilt have learned to use this flaw to their advantage. They will even convince others the person is crazy and try and demean and belittle them to get other to lose respect for the person to make their lies and diversion tactic more believable. So these people will point the fingers at others, accuse them of much worse, try and get others to lose respect for the person and even work to create false memories in others. I seen this tactic first hand and was surprised at how skillful they can be and how quickly they can cause these false memories to occur.
I worry about those who were effected by things that have caused memory loss because they can easily become victims of these people.
Guilt deflection, blaming others.
There are many varieties of Mullein which is the Verbascum family. This is Verbascum Densiflorum. It is the only one I have eaten. It is very fuzzy and taste like cabbage. It has many health benefits from reducing inflammation to helping with asthma. It is great at fighting infections.
This site is the best for learning to identify plants. It also has a lot of very good information on how to use the plants.
