Horsweed

 

Conyza Canadensis

Used to be known as Erigeron Canadensis. It has a somewhat hot taste like black pepper. I like the taste but I think it is better to use as a spice. Many use it in place of tarragon. I do not know what tarragon taste like so cannot comment on that. I used to grow it now I try and manage it. It does not take much for it to get away from you and overtake things. Some call it Horseweed, some call it mares tail. Is resistant to glyphosate so be careful where you forage it.

Leaky Gut, Oxalates and more supplement information.

This is not medical advice and should not be taken as such. I am posting this for educational and informational purposes.

Avoid GMOs they cause leaky gut and gut dysbiosis. If you do not know about them read my post on them. They and the chemicals used on them cause oxalates which I mention later in this article. They kill our good gut microbes. This is a list of gut microbiota and what conditions they help with.

Mucilage every few hours helps a lot with leaky gut. When you have leaky gut it causes high oxalate levels. This causes a cycle that is hard to break because oxalates prevent the gut from healing. Mucilage can help heal the gut breaking the cycle. Mucilage helped me the most with healing my gut.

Things that are high in mucilage are Okra, organic Oatmeal, Aloe Vera I found the liquid gel worked the best dried aloe vera seemed ineffective. Besella Alba known as Malabar Spinach, Irish moss but you have to watch consuming it, it has a cannabinoid that reduces pain but has side effects if you consume too much. Most plants in the mallow family are very high in mucilage and have very good healing properties. Most plants in the dioscera family are high in mucilage especially the chinese wild yam. Fenugreek is high in mucilage. Flax seeds are high mucilage but if you have leaky gut they should be ground up to prevent other heath issues. Most seaweeds are high in mucilage. Licorice root is high mucilage but you have to make sure it is deglycyrrhizinated if not it can cause many health problems. Mullein is high mucilage and helps with lung infections. Most edible plants in the daisy and sunflower family are high in mucilage. Wild Daisy helped me a lot. Pysillium seed husk are high in mucilage they are seeds from the plantain herb. Plantain herb itself is very high in mucilage. Wild violet is very high in mucilage. Chia seed is high in mucilage most seed is. Slippery Elm is high in mucilage but some claim it is high oxalate , I have never tried it. Most roots herbs are high in mucilage. Arrow root is very high in mucilage.

Probiotic Guide.

Do not get discouraged your gut can heal but it may take time.

https://www.prevention.com/health/a20469183/leaky-gut-syndrome/

If we do not correct it , it can lead to many health problems.

http://www.beyondmthfr.com/category/home-slider/

Leaky gut can lead to food allergies and chronic illness.

https://draxe.com/leaky-gut-test/

If you have been damaged by GMOs or antibiotics and have gut dysbiois and it feels like you have a brick in your gut after you eat, you may not be producing enough intrinsic factor which is needed in order for your body to absorb vitamin B12.  A deficiency in B12 causes many serious health problems. These are some things that may increase intrinsic factor.

http://www.sophiahi.com/how-to-increase-your-digestive-fire-by-jeannie-oliver-chc-cpt/

We need to avoid Omega 6 oils. Most of that comes from corn oil,soy bean oil, vegetable oil, and lard. Most of those are from GMOs also. They will cause inflammation in the body if we get too much.

Probiotics are one of the keys to healing the gut. They should be geared to what health issues we are dealing with.

Healing Leaky Gut

It is very important to

If you have Lyme there is very little knowledge in the medical community to assist with healing and fighting the disease it and other infections can raise zonulin levels causing leaky gut.. There are a few elite doctors who cared enough to do their own research. This is not medical advice. I am posting this to enable people to find the things they need to research to aid in their own healing. Always let your doctor know if you have any diet changes or you take any supplements. Always listen to your body, because it will tell you what is good for it and what is not. When you make any diet changes, whether it is supplements or food, only make one or two changes at a time so that if you have a reaction you will be able to identify what the cause of the problem is.

When you have leaky gut food particles can get into your blood stream which will raise your histamine levels. Signs of raised histamine levels are burning skin , headaches, confusion, fatigue, muscle spasms, blocked urinary track. The list goes on and on so it is very important to get the gut healed or you cannot fight infection or heal.

Healing the Gut

If you have any digestive problems you must take care of those first. Everything is tied to the digestive tract, even the brain. Problems with digestion can lead to a domino effect leading to trouble with hormones, bladder, liver the cardiovascular system, autoimmune system, and even mental health. If you do not get digestive problems taken care of you are fighting a losing battle whatever else you do.

Primary to getting the gut to heal is avoiding foods containing GMOs. They have been shown to damage the digestive system, among other issues.

If you are fighting an infection or dysbiosis the die off can cause bloating. I had to ease into things so I did not bloat too bad. Many probiotics can cause die off of pathogens and some of the bad gut bacteria which will also cause bloating.

Liquid Aloe Vera — this coats the stomach and helps it heal. It has also been shown to fight Candida and H-Pylori when they have switched from commensal to pathogenic forms. Has been shown to reduce oxalates.

Mucilage helps heal the gut. Some wild plants are high in mucilage like Wild Violets and Dandelion, the roots of Evening Primrose are high in mucilage. Plants in the mallow family are high in mucilage. Marshmallow root has many healing properties. The plants with the highest mucilage content are Spinach Vine, Irish Moss, Wild Yam, Fenugreek, Crushed Flax seed, Kelp, Marshmallow Root, Mullein, Okra, Psylium husk which is from the seeds of plantain herb, chia seeds and Broad Leaf Plantain herb. Some may have oxalates but we cannot avoid oxalates we need to address the issues causing high oxalates. Almost all foods have oxalates, cooking breaks down oxalates. But avoiding oxalates entirely will cause you more health problems then it would cure.

Mastic Gum — coats the stomach and has also been shown to fight many pathogens. This is

dried sap from the mastic tree and can be found in health food stores. Coating the stomachache is very important. I know mucilage can inhibit nutrient absorption but you cannot heal if you do not coat your stomach.

Biofilms

This is a list of things that break biofilms or aid the gut in healing. When the biofilms break up you will defecate mucous for about a month sometimes it will appear as if it is a piece of your intestine. I found that very scary and had to ask people who have went through it what it was. There is no information I could find to explain it. Breaking Biofilms is very important in healing our gut if our gut issues are from an infection..

Propolis — a resin produced by bees, so anyone with allergies to bees should not use this one. It has been shown to bust biofilms, kill many pathogens, and to promote gut healing.

Pepto-Bismol — I kept this on hand for when the aloe vera didn’t seem to help. You have to be careful you can herx from this because bismuth kills many pathogens. Bismuth has been shown to also break up biofilms.

phospholipids (good fats) – omega 3s are the best to use. Oils like grape seed oil, sesame seed oil , olive oil contain omaega 3s. Try avoiding Omega 6 it is needed by the body but if we get too much it can cause inflammation.

Garlic- garlic has many healing properties along with breaking up biofilms a killing pathogens. If you have high sulfite levels from having too many sulfur digesting bacteria this will make you ill because it is high sulfur and will raise your sulfite levels. I had this problem but one of the most potent chemicals in garlic is allicin and it does not cause issues with sulfites. I used it and it worked very well for me.

Stevia- it has to be Stevia extract because it needs the cofactors to work. Make sure you get organic because there is GMO Stevia. It also kills many pathogens including Lyme.

Xylitol-has very potent antibiotic properties. Many get cramps when they use it. I got cramps but I had an infected tooth and it worked very well for taking the infection out.

Cinnamon – breaks biofilms, high in mucilage coats the stomachache and helps with nausea. It has been shown to inhibit pain.

Cholesterol breaks biofilms is needed by almost all cells in the body. The brain and heart cannot function without it. Oxidative stress from leaky gut can cause high oxLDL. If you avoid cholesterol because of that you will be inhibiting your bodies ability to heal. When you reduce the source of the oxidative stress your oxLDL will return to normal. Cholesterol is an antioxidant and is used by the body to protect cells from pathogens. Cholesterol is needed to maintain the integrity of the digestive system and bladder.

Chlorophyll – fights Candida, helps remove toxins such as heavy metals from the body, and improves the health of our blood, as well as to protect the good bacteria. Sources of chlorophyll include green leafy vegetables and seaweed, but make sure the seaweed has come from a non-contaminated source. You can purchase liquid chlorophyll. I only used it for about a week and then I backed off to three times a week. There are many health benefits to liquid chlorophyll. It raises oxygen levels in the blood and restores the ph of our bladder and digestive system. It fights many pathogens. It feeds the good gut bacteria while reducing the bad. Those with SIBO will bloat when using this and herx from the die off of the sulfur digesting and methane producing bacteria. If you have SIBO and are going to use chlorophyll I would ease into using it. Liquid chlorophyll also raises oxygen levels in the body and helps restore the health of our blood cells.

Apple cider vinegar – helps fight Candida, breaks up biofilms and kills pain better then aspiron.

Mushrooms — bust biofilms, kill Candida, and fight many other diseases. Most mushrooms will do this. Mushrooms also contain glycoproteins which improve the bodies cell to cell communication so you can heal quicker. Glycoproteins also kill many pathogens so you could herx from them. Mushrooms also contain Beta Glucan which helps restore the good gut bacteria and fights pathogens.

Coconut oil — breaks biofilms and kills pathogens. It can even cross the blood brain barrier and improves brain health. The body converts coconut oil’s lauric acid to monolauren, which has been shown to fight many pathogens, reduce the number of Lyme spyrochetes in Lyme sufferers, and also crosses the blood brain barrier to contribute to improved brain health. Coconut oil contains many of the electrolytes needed by the body. When ill you need more electrolytes then usual.

Bromelain – breaks up biofilms helps fight pathogens , helps with digestion and reduces ammonia in the body.

Flax seed oil — breaks biofilms and fights pathogens. It has Omega-3 fatty acids which help protect the digestive system. Do not use too much flax seed and alternate the days you take it. Taking too much seems to cancel out its health benefits. Also has a canibinoid similar to thc so it reduces pain.

Inulin — promotes healthy bacteria in the digestive system, aiding in the break down and absorption of nutrients. Some sources of inulin are onions, garlic, bananas, dandelion root, chicory root, Jerusalem artichoke, asparagus, barley.

Oxalates.

Symptoms of high oxalates is joint pain, mental fog, anxiety , depression, kidney and liver pain, muscle fatigue, digestive pain, bladder pain, vulvodynia, indigestion when foods containing oxalates are consumed, and skin rashes. Many things can cause oxalates. Metabolic issues, leaky gut, high histamines, gut dysbiosis which cause there to be too many sulfur digesting and methane producing bacteria, which cause high sulfite level and high hydroxy radical levels which result in oxidative stress which also causes oxalates. Toxins such as glyphosate, glufosinate and many other farm chemicals. Also heavy metals, endotoxins, and alfoxins can cause oxalates to form. 

https://www.greatplainslaboratory.com/articles-1/2015/11/13/oxalates-control-is-a-major-new-factor-in-autism-therapy

http://www.lowoxalate.info/research.html

http://bioindividualnutrition.com/oxalates-their-influence-on-chronic-disease/

Oxalates break down when cooked so foods that are high in oxalates like spinach make sure you cook before eating. We cannot avoid oxalates they are in most food.

Oxalates prevent the body from healing and also hinder the gut from healing. That becomes a viscous cycle because when you have leaky gut you will develop high histamines and toxins can easily enter the blood stream, those also cause oxalates. Endotoxins and Afloxin can also cause oxalates. So it is very important to detox. Also metablolic issues and high sulfite levels can cause high oxalates so those should be addressed before detoxing. High sulfite levels can be caused from having too many sulfur digesting bacteria (gut dysbiosis). That in itself will cause many health issues like high ammonia levels. You can heal the gut with high oxalate levels but you must consume a lot of high mucilage foods to coat and protect the gut.

Here is a list of some things that reduce oxalates. I will post some links to some information also. 

https://chriskresser.com/how-to-prevent-kidney-stones-naturally/

Oxalates cause inflammation.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3807999/

We have gut bacteria that breaks down oxalates. If we are deficient in them it will raise our oxalate levels. They need the other friendly gut microbiome to establish. If we are lacking in the other gut bacteria they will not establish when we take them. They require an oligosaccharide to get established and remain in the gut. The also need sugar the type found in fruit , honey, or maple syrup will help them establish.

Oxalobacter Formingene

Bififobacterium Adolescentis

Bifidobacteriium Anamalis

Lactobacillus Acidophilus

Lactobacillus Gasseri

Lactobacillus Rhamnosus

Lactobacillus Planatarum

Enterococcus Faecalis reduces oxalates but consuming to much salt inhibits it’s ability to degrade oxalates.

Make sure you drink plenty of water. It needs to be free of chlorine or flouride because they cause oxalates and are very toxic to the body.

Avoid artificial sweeteners and processed sugar they can cause oxalates.

Sodium bicarbonate- be careful do not use more then a tablespoon in a glass of water it is a very strong base which means in high amounts it can cause burns. I only took it about 3 times a week.

Citric Acid which is not vitamin C helps reduce oxalates. Lemon juice is a good source of citric acid. It irritated my gut if I used it straight so I put it in my water with a little honey.

Do not take calcium get it from natural sources , calcium reduces oxalates but the calcium found in many supplements is the wrong type and can cause oxalates. Stinging nettles is one of the best sources of calcium. Most foods contain adequate amounts of calcium. If someone has bone loss it is usually from a magnesium or silica deficiency.

Excess salt causes oxalates. I use sea salt. Studies have found using sea salt cuts the craving for salt because of the trace minerals it contains.

Magnesium Citrate reduces oxalates. Also there are many metabolic pathways that need magnesium. When they do not have the nutrients they need oxalates can be produced.

Phytic acid found in grains can cause oxalates. We need phytic acid but should limit our intake of grains.

Foods that raise histamines like fermented foods, aged meats and some cheeses, also yogurt. High histamine levels can cause oxalates.

Vitamin B6 reduces oxalates, I had to use P5P because I wasn’t converting B6/

Vitamin E reduces oxalates. Most seeds contain vitamin E. If you eat flax seeds they have to be crushed or you will not digest them. Avocados are high in vitamin E. Also Olive oil is high in vitamin E. Mango and hazel nuts .

NAC N-Acetyl Cysteine reduces oxalates.

https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/10715762.2016.1221507?journalCode=ifra20

Aloe Vera has been shown to reduce oxalates.

Thiamine deficiency can cause high oxalates.

https://alobar.livejournal.com/2510679.html

Do not take more then 4000 IU of vitamin D it can cause oxaltes in very high doses.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8382134

Vitamin D in the correct amounts actually reduces oxalalates. There is a saying the poison is in the dose. I often find that to be true.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19734276

The flavonoids found in the white part of citrus fruits will reduce oxalates.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4616898/

Eating too much meat can cause oxalates to form. mainly in those with metabolic issues.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1455427/

Spirulina reduces oxalates but some with high sulfite levels may have trouble with it. I can take it now but it did make me worse because it is high in sulfur.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3972226/

http://redmountainclinic.com/the-down-side-to-high-oxalates-problems-with-sulfate-b6-gut-and-methylation/

We need vitamin C to heal. Ester-C has been shown to actually reduce oxalates and can usually be taken by those with interstitial cystitis.

If you have excess oxidative stress it can cause oxalates to form so it must be addressed.

Molybdenum helps reduce ammonia which can cause oxidative stress. Do not take too much it can be toxic if it get to high in our bodies. Many metabolic pathways need it but we do not want to overload on it.

Herbs for Healing

salsify, and burdock root. Some people are allergic to foods that contain inulin. Most foods that contain fiber that is hard to digest will help balance and protect the good gut bacteria. The allergic reaction is most likely a herx reaction and not an allergic reaction.

Acanthus Ilicifolius – increases production of osteoblast which are necessary for bone growth and health. Has been shown to help gastric ulcers heal. Has strong antibacterial and antifungal properties.

Embilia Ribes (False Black Pepper) — helps with flatulence, kills parasites, decreases homocysteine levels, and reduces symptoms of brain disorders. Lowering homocysteine levels would help with allergies and mast cell activation syndrome.

Pectin — breaks biofilms and lowers bad cholesterol. Pectin is a type of fiber. Food sources include apricots, peaches, apples, bananas, oranges, grapes, carrots, tomatoes and white potatoes.

Phospholipids — protect the digestive system, promote healing, and protect against cancer and infections. Some sources of phospholipids are butter, ghee, and mercury-free fish oil.

Butyric acid — protects our digestive system from infection, protects the body from cancer, aids in breaking food down into smaller particles that are easier for our bodies to absorb and make use of the nutrients. Butyric acid is produced when we consume hard to digest fiber, such as that in celery. It can also be found in ghee and butter.Also some of our microbiome produce this from fiber we consume.

Clove oil — has been shown to fight many pathogens and settles your stomach. This one really helped me because I was having trouble eating due to the nausea from my leaky gut.

Restoring Gut bacteria.

Probiotics — help restore the good bacteria to our digestive system, fight pathogens, and break down our foods. Choose a probiotic supplement with Bifidus and active Acidophilus cultures – the higher the number of cultures the better. The important gut bacteria to get is B Lactis , L Acidophilus, L Rhamnosus , L Salivarius, L Plantarum , B Animalis, B Longus, B Brevi, B Infantis.

Avoid things that contain Lactobaccilus Casei, L Lactis, L Reuteri, L Fermentum/Fermenti, L Paracaei, L Faecum , L Bulgaricus, Streptococcus Thermophilus.

If you start feeling bloated you may be getting to many good gut bacteria which can cause harm also. Get lots of prebiotics it feeds and protects the good gut bacteria and balances it out. Happy gut bacteria will help protect your immune system and help rebuild it.

Fireweed – Helps normalize gut flora, supports the good gut bacteria. Reduces inflammation and symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome. High in mucilage which heals the gut.

Bone broth — helps leaky gut and has the added benefit of containing many nutrients. If you have high sulfite levels or sufation issues you will need to address them before using this. It is high in glutamate and those issues can cause high glutamate levels which will cause very bad headaches and brain fog.

L-Glutamine — helps heal the soft tissue in the gut and is involved in many metabolic processes, fueling white blood cells and many other cells. Unfortunately, animal flesh is the best source of L-glutamine. I say unfortunately because if you have methylation problems digesting meat may be difficult for you. Whey protein and other dairy products are high in L-glutamine, as are eggs, nuts, seeds, lentils and other legumes, but all contain phenylalanine, which can also create problems if you are not methylating right.

I take betaine (trimethylglycine), derived from beets, to aid with the methylation. It has helped me I now rarely get ill when eating things that contain phenylalanine. Bromelain and papaya enzymes are also supposed to help with methylation. Cabbage is a good source of L-glutamine. If you have a blocked or upregualted CBS pathway , or an upregulated BH4 pathway and don’t address it this could make you ill. Most with those issues would benefit from taking P5P, selenium, and magnesium citrate. Also three times a week molybdenum and manganese.

If the pathways for using phenylalanine is blocked then foods high in phenylalanine will raise your ammonia levels and histamine levels which in turn can give you phenylaturia or homocysteinuria. Phenylaturia causes high ammonia levels which alkalize the digestive system and bladder making us prone to infection and dysbiosis. Protease enzymes may help with that. Meat is high in phenylalanine if you get ill after eating meat then you may have a problem.

If you eat foods that raise your glutathione levels like cruciferous vegetables then you may have a CBS pathway blocked which can make you feel ill. What helped me with that was P5P, Methylcolobamine and Molybdenum which I only take a few times a week.

— Avoid things high in tannic acid, such as coffee.

— Do not drink alcohol.

— Many things in processed foods can cause leaky gut, so try to eat foods made from whole, fresh ingredients.

Processed Sugar causes inflammation so try your best to avoid it in all its forms. Other sugars like those found in fruits, honey, organic black strap molasses have been found to fight pathogens and actually promote healing.

Lowering Histamine levels. Leaky gut causes high histamine levels which causes a loop that prevents us from healing because histamines cause inflammation.

Avoid foods high in histamines especially fermented foods, cheese and yogurt. Also avoid aged meats. Everyone is different, some can eat one high histamine food and not another and vice versa.

Things that help lower histamine levels. There are many protease enzyme that help with that I used Bromelain and Betaine along with serrapeptase because it helps dissolve scar tissue caused by chronic disease and also lowers histamine levels. Be careful even those protease enzymes are good for lowering histamine and homocysteine levels if taken to often it can lower your homocysteine levels too low.

Other protease enzyme that are supposed to work well like Papain and Nattokinase I have never tried them. Nattokinase is supposed to help with renal and lymph blockages. Nattokinase is supposed to help reduce carcinogenic estrogen levels.

American Skullcap Tea – not to be confused with chinese which has different health benefits. American Skullcap promotes relaxation, reduces seizures, inhibits food allergies. Has amazing healing abilities. I did experience problems with this at first because it improve the health of blood vessels and helps repair nerves. When I started to heal my nerves and muscles woke up and all heck broke loose. I had bad charlie horuses and burning in my nerves for three days but once my body got used to them working again it was like a big weight was lifted off and I could feel myself healing.

Wasabi – reduces risk of cancer and heart disease, has anti-inflammatory properties. Helps fight bacterial infections. It also reduces allergy symptoms and detoxes the body. Wasabi is packed full of nutrients.

Detoxing

Luffa Gourd – Strengthens the immune system, reduces fevers, detoxifies the body and aids the body with hydration. Has been shown to reduce heart palpitations and hair loss.

Oregano Oil – contains Carvacrol which protects the liver, has been shown to inhibit cancer growth. Works as a good nontoxic disinfectant. Has been shown to be as affective as chlorine. It kills Candida and helps protect the cardiovascular system from LDL and reduces inflammation.

Kills many pathogens.

Carnosine – detoxes the bodies cells of heavy metals has been shown to reduce some aging. Good sources are avocados, beans, bran, brewers yeast, brown rice, nuts, seeds, watercress, and spirulina.

L-ornithine and arginine is needed in the urea cycle to remove ammonia and other toxins from the body. Good sources of these are legumes,vegetables,nuts, seafood and seeds.

Indian Paintbrush (Castilleja) Only the flowers are eaten, the rest of the plant is too high in selenium. Has similar health benefits as garlic. It enhances the immune system. Helps the body to detox, the rest of the plant is too high in selenium to consume.

Garlic , Dandelion Tea, Red Rooibos Tea, Chlorophyll and Rattan tea are all good at detoxing the body. The protease enzymes also help with detoxing.

Lemmongrass – Lowers LDL, helps get toxins out of the body and lowers uric acid levels. Has been shown to be affective against cancer.

The essential oil has antimicrobial properties and has been shown to be affective against H-Pylori. Has also been shown to aid colitis. Calms muscles and nerves Helps relive pain including headaches. Has been shown to reduce the occurrence of convulsions and helps repair the immune system.!!Be careful some have had an allergic reaction to this.!!

White Peony Root – reduces diabetes induced oxidative stress. Decreases urinary albumin. Protects the liver from oxidative stress. RDA is 100 to 200 mg per kilogram of weight.

These are things that helped me heal.

Research them to see if they would help you.

Silymarin- milk thistle, heals cell damage helps repair methylation pathways. Helps repair nerve damage. I have heard complaints of this making people ill this is because certain liver disease can cause high iron levels and milk thistle is high in iron.

Kelp – has iodine which is needed by the body to keep the thyroids unblocked and to detox the body. Also has mucilage which helps heal the gut.

Aegle Marmelos – leaves are used. Inhibits lipid peroxidation, protects cells from damage, has antibacterial properties. Has been shown to fight cancer and is an adaptogen. Used to reduce chronic fatigue symptoms.

Vitamin D3 protects the cardiovascular system and nerves. Helps keep the immune system healthy. Us natural man made has been shown to have side effects. You should not take more then 4,000 IU, high doses can cause oxalates.

Ubuquinol- unoxidized form of CoQ10, use to provide the chromosomes with energy.

Quercetin- Helps heal leaky gut and nerve damage. The highest sources are elderberry juice, capers, Lovage, radish leaves, dill, Juniper berries, onions, red leaf lettuce, watercress and hawthorne leaves.

Honeysuckle- helps with cardiovascular issues and heals smooth muscle. Helps detox the body. Has mucilage which helps heal the gut.

Myricetin- helps reduce the symptoms of diabetes. Also shown to protect the nerves. Good sources are parsley, currants, yellow dock, cranberries, seeds, and blueberries. Has been shown to fight viral infections.

Kudzu- reduces histamines, and eases gastrointestinal problems. Lowers sugar levels. Helps fight cancer and is affective at aiding in suppressing alcohol cravings. Has been used to treat angina. Is an adaptogen so will help with adrenal fatigue.

Bacopa – heals brain and nerves, improves memory. Reduces ammonia levels in the body. Helps heal blood vessels throughout the body. Amazing herb.

Barberry – reduces swelling in spleen, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory. Has been shown affective against protozoa infections.

Tart Cherry capsules – helps fight heart disease , cancer, neuro-degenerative disease. Protects against muscle damage.

Maca Root helps replenish nutrients especially electrolytes. Is an adoptogen helps to balance the bodies hormones.

Ellagic Acid – inhibits binding of carcinogens to DNA. Reduces oxidative stress.

Sources are Black Berries, Cranberries, Raspberries, Strawberries, Walnuts, Grapes and Peaches. Must be coated to survive the stomache acid.

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.

Lotus Root – Improves digestion, reduces LDL, reduces stress hormones, strengthens the immune system and is loaded with many nutrients. Helps heal the gut.

Moringa Oleifera reduces oxidative stress and the illnesses cause by it. Helps heal leaky gut and reduce the risk of kidney stones. Also fights many infections.

Black Currant Seed Oil (Ribes Nigrum) Good source of Gamma-Linolenic Acid. Reduces arthritis symptoms, gastritis, stimulates production of anti-inflammatory hormones, helps suppress Postglandulin E2 boosting the immune system. Has been shown to be very affective at protecting the body from the flu.

This is a list of gut microbiota and the conditions they help with.

Probiotic Guide.

I state this often to people. You should not take the same strains of probiotic everyday. It will lead to SIBO which causes major health problems. You have to alternate the strains you take and take a break from probiotics once in a while to let the microbiome balance out. Sibo can lead to metabolic acidosis and many other health problems.

Our gut bacteria tell us what to eat.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5987188/

Ok now for the information. One mistake people make if their histamine levels go up when they take a probiotic they panic. When you first take a probiotic it sends out a molecule to tell your body to produce histamines. That makes the mucous membrane more porous. It does this so it can enter and establish itself in the mucous membrane. Once it is in and has set up camp it will continually send out a molecule telling the body not to produce too many histamines so it does not kill the good gut bacteria. So initially histamines will rise for a day or two then after they are established they will drop back down. You may bloat when you first take probiotics. It is best to alternate the types you take or you will develop gut dysbiosis. That is as bad if not worse then having Candida. Your gut bacteria keep your bladder and digestive system acidic. If it becomes alkaline which is usually caused by high ammonia levels in the body. High ammonia levels can be a result of inhibited sulfation or having too many sulfur digesting, methane producing bacteria. High ammonia levels can also be the result of high endotoxin or afloxin levels. I experienced Candida and dysbiosis . I found grapefruit seed extract helped a lot. But you can only take it for a few days and you cannot take it more then two days a week because it inhibits cytochrome P450 enzymes. Yogurt , fermented foods and aged meets should be avoided they have histamine producing bacteria in them and will raise histamine and inflammation levels. Once you get things straightened out you can eat those. I take 3 days a week where I do not take any probiotics to prevent dysbiosis. Some Probiotics that reduce histamines.

Bifidobacterium Infintus

Lactobacillus Rhamnosus

Lactobacillus Salivarius

Lactobacillus Sporogenes

Lactobacillus Saccharomyces

Lactobacillus Bouldardii

High Substance P levels can make our skin peel and cause gut issues. One of the major causes of high substance P is stress. Probiotics that reduce stress reduces substance P. High substance P causes burning skin , it will get worse at night. The worst burning will be in the scalp and down the spine. Because high substance P can make the skin itch it gets mistaken for high histamine.

Many toxins in our foods especially BT Toxin, glyphosate and glufonisate can inhibit FUT2. This is an enzyme that we secrete that keeps our gut bacteria healthy. Medications like fluoroquinolones can slo inhibit it along with endotoxins from pathogens and afloxin from fungus. This causes food intolerances, food allergies and chronic illness from gut dysbiosis which produces high sulfite and hydroxy radicals which raise ammonia levels in the bladder and digestive system. Ammonia alkalizes our bladder and digestive system. It should be acidic to prevent pathogens. Candida and H Pylori are normally commensal but when we become alkaline they become pathogenic. Also many pathogens prefer an alkaline enviroment. This also leads to gluten, milk and protein intolerance.

Candida Myths busted.

There are many myths about candida for example you should alkalize the body to fight it. If you do that you will feed it and many other pathogens. Our bladder and digestive system is supposed to be acidic. When you alkalize them which is very hard then you would be feeding candida. When we get high ammonia levels from metabolic issues or from gut dysbiosis it alkalizes our bladder and digestive system causing candida to go from a friendly fungus we need to a pathogenic form. To get it back to the friendly form we need to fix the metabolic issues or the any other number of issues that can cause high ammonia levels. Once Candida is in the pathogenic form it will raise the PH to an alkaline one and it does it in a very short period of time.

Probiotics and cancer. It is better to prevent cancer. Many who have cancer have been found to have acidosis which indicates an underlying health is. That can be from metabolic issues, leaky gut, toxins especially heavy metals and the BT Toxins found in GMOs and the herbicide used on it glyphosate. All those can cause leaky gut which can cause high histamines which also leads to acidosis. Cancer has also been found to create it’s own micro acid environment. Keeping our gut balanced protects us from cancer and many other illnesses. This can also lead to acidosis from dybiosis or akalosis (hyperammonemia)from fungal infection which also causes cancer.

How toxins are removed from the brain.

This is not medical advice I am posting this for educational and informational purposes.

Our brain like any other organ needs to clean out toxins and waste. The glymphatic system is the brains lymphatic system and helps to clean toxins and waste from the brain. Our brain is protected and it is very difficult for things to cross the blood brain barrier. If the glymphatic system fail we can develop a leaky blood brain barrier or leaky dura this leaves us open to toxins and pathogens. It is very important to keep our glymphatic system healthy.

How it works.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5803388/

Many illnesses can suppress the glymphatic system this can lead to neurodegenerative disease.

Plantain Herb

 

 

Plantago Major and Plantago Lanceolata

Most call P. Major broad leaf plantain and P. Lanceolata narrow leaf plantain. The health benefits are similar but P. Major taste much better though I like the taste of both, I prefer P. Major. Or P Rugelii which looks similar to P. Major but it has a purple or red color at the bottom of the leaf stem. It is the mildest tasting of the three and has a somewhat sweet taste. This is another herb that is a power house when it comes to healing. It can help balance the immune system. Helps with inflammation and poor blood circulation. Kills many pathogens and has amazing healing abilities. It can kill gangrene so the phytochemicals are being researched in it. It also fights chronic illnesses even cancer. I have found it works fantastic for rashes especially poison ivy. To prevent a rash I will take Jewel Weed and use the juices because it is good at breaking up the urishiol. It doesn’t prevent the rash though but will reduce the effects of the urishiol in poison ivy or poison sumac. I then use the juice from plantain to prevent the a rash. It contains biacalein which is what give sculletaria it’s healing benefits.

Supplement and Nutrient Information I have accumulated part 2.

 

This is not medical advice and should not be taken as such. I am posting this for educational and informational purposes.

Calcium Glycerophosphate – helps with the ph of urine. Helps fight pathogens also helps with bone healing. You do not want to over alkalize the bladder. Most pathogens especially Candida when it is in it’s pathogenic form prefers and flourishes in an alkaline environment but the good bacteria cannot tolerate it. This helps if you have acidosis and would probably be about the only reason I would take it. It has been shown to strengthen bones and teeth. Do not take too often or for too long because it can inhibit absorption of other nutrients. It has been shown to reduce the symptoms of mental illness, improve memory and cognitive function. It helps heal leaky gut. It inhibits absorption of lead and alunimun into the body. It also helps ease bladder pain. It reduces inflammation and fights cancer. It increases IL 10 which can be inhibited by many pathogens to stealth themselves from the immune system.

Calcium-D-Glucarate this reduces ammonia levels in the body. It helps remove toxins from the body. It can help remove carcinogenic estrogen from the body. It reduces stress on the liver which causes a reduced need for cholesterol which will reduce cholesterol levels. It also reduces the risk of cancer. It also prevents toxins from being absorbed in the digestive system. It improves glucuronidation.

Phospholipids – needed for healing and protecting the cells in the body. Also helps transport nutrients through the body. Breaks up biofilms. It is good to alternate sources because each has their benefits. Some good sources of phospholipids are olive oil, ghee, evening primrose oil etc. Try to reduce sources of Omega 6 if it gets too high in the body it will cause inflammation instead of reducing it. Omega 3 needs to be higher. If you get ill, have bladder pain or get indigestion when you consume fats then you may have a blocked Pentose Phosphate Pathway or you have Pyrole issues that need addressed. There are many types of fats. I will do a seperate article on that.

Cholesterol – needed to heal in all parts of the body. The heart and brain cannot function without it. If your oxLDL is high it indicates you have inflammation or high oxidative stress levels. Cholesterol is an antioxidant and high LDL is a sign your antioxidant systems is working but something is causing inflammation or oxidative stress. Lowering chlolesterol prevents the body from healing. Address what is causing it, also not drinking enough water can also cause high LDL levels. Reducing cholesterol is not a good idea. Studies have shown memory and cognitive function decline as cholesterol levels decline. Muscles start to deteriorate if they do not get enough cholesterol. I did a post on cholesterol that gets into more detail.

Arrowroot – helps the cells use cholesterol more affectively especially in the bladder. It reduces oxLDL levels. It has many of the nutrients to support our metabolic pathways. Cholesterol is needed for our bodies to heal. Oxidative stress prevents our cells from being able to use cholesterol properly. Arrow root helps improve the absorption and use of cholesterol in the body. This reduces the bad cholesterol like oxLDL. There are many types of roots used from a variety of plants but most have the same benefits. Helps heal the gut and bladder because it has nutrients to support the health of mucous membranes. When processed into flour it losses many of it’s vitamins but retains minerals. Many of the benefits from arrowroot are from drinking teas made from arrowroot. Most of these because of the type of starch found in roots would help heal the gut. Seems those in the Canna family, Maranta Arundinacea are the best ones to use.

Larazotide Acetate – reduces symptoms of celiac disease has been shown to reduce bladder pain.

Ashwagandha (Withania Somnifera)– improves thyroid and adrenal health. Reduces brain cell degeneration. Improves endurance and stamina. This is an herb you want to back off using and only take maintenance doses once you start healing. Ashwagandha reduces stress hormones. Ashwagandha also balances sugar levels in the body. Improves memory and heals the brain. It contains withanolides which are also found in plants in the same family like Tomatilla and ground cherries. Has many antioxidants which help reduce inflammation and histamines that results in lower oxidative stress, lower oxLDL and better immune function. It increases male fertility and fights cancer. It simulates thyroid hormones. It increases red and white blood cell counts. It also kills pathogens so you could herx when you first take it. Though there are no apparent side effects homeostasis should always be the goal. When you feel better a rule that has helped me is to stop taking something and start taking maintenance doses once in a while to keep things working.

Mushrooms like cordyceps, reishe and many others contain anti pathogen properties and have glycoprotein which is more easily used by the body for energy. Glycoproteins also promote better cell to cell communication. They also contain beta glucan which can stimulate the immune system to help fight pathogens. If you have a T cell imbalance they restore T cell balance in the body. Exposing mushrooms to sunlight before you eat them causes them to produce vitamin D. They kill cancer because the glycoproteins improve our bodies cell to cell communication. Mushrooms are also hepatoprotective.

Fulvic Acid – helps repair chromosome damage. Can increase ammonia and hydrogen peroxide levels so make sure your oxidative stress levels are down. Make sure you detox before using it, it can cause the release of toxins from the cells to be excreted. It restores autophagy. Because it restores autophagy it benefits the whole body. It helps balance our gut bacteria and is good for those who have SIBO. Fulvic Acid also improves nutrient absorption. In inhibits COX and reduces homocystein which would reduce inflammation and help with MCAS. I get mine from organic blackstrap molasses. It has a high fulvic acid content. It also helps fight cancer. There is a draw back to fulvic acid. If you take too much it can actually increase oxidative stress instead of decreasing it. Use in moderation. Also if you are deficient in Selenium it will increase oxidative stress so make sure you get enough selenium.

Taurine – usually low in vegetarians, has a sedative affect. Helps adrenals by reducing stress hormones. Has sedative affects. Needed for cardiovascular function, cellular function, eyes, skeletal muscle and central nervous system. Protect the bladder from stress induced injury. It is also an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. It reduces oxidative stress so would help with the many chronic illnesses that come with it. Helps regualte the amount of water in our cells and is part of the bile system. If you are deficient in taurine it could effect your gall bladder which in turn could cause gall stones and high oxLDL. There is so many benefits to taurine I am not going to list them. I have found no studies on negative effects caused by it.

Ginkgo Biloba – before I mention the benefits I need to give a warning. Taking it for too long or in high doses may damage the liver. I say may because the studies showing it harms the liver where poorly designed so I could not draw a conclusion. Their are studies showing it’s safety but they did not test on liver enzymes and function so I cannot draw a conclusion from those either. helps adrenals by lowering stress hormones. Improves memory and blood circulation. I got a headache the first few times I took this then I could think much clearer. The is one that you are not supposed to take often or for extended periods of time. If taken for too long or to high a dose it can damage the kidney and liver. It helps with interstitial cystitis and reduces inflammation. It also fights infection. It enhances memory and cognitive function. Helps with Raynauds disease which is cause by damage or inflammation in the blood vessels which causes restricted blood flow. It can also be caused by carditits from sepsis or infection. Some drugs can cause it like fluoroquinolones one of the most harmful drugs on the market. If you have epilepsy most recommend you do not take it. The first couple of times I took it I got a really bad headache. It improves mood and energy levels. Heals, hemorrhoids, fights fibromyalgia and reduces symptoms of asthma. Then about the third day my brain fog from the Lyme started lifting and I could think more clearly and concentrate better. If you are allergic to poison ivy you may be allergic to this.

Organic unsulfured Blackstrap Molasses has too many benefits to list but I will try to list some of them. It promotes overall body health. Speeds up wound healing and helps with anemia. Has many nutrients needed for the metabolic pathways. Ease into using it because when the metabolic pathways open your body will start to detox. You do not want to open the flood gates too fast but open them slowly until the toxin levels are low enough for your body to be able to keep up. Also Blackstrap Molasses is high in fulvic acid and you do not want to get your fulvic acid levels to high. It has many benefits but many nutriets lose their benefits if over consumed.

oligosaccharides found in fruits and vegetables help balance our gut bacteria. Which reduces our risk of chronic illness. They also help prevent gut dysbiosis and cancer.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29800811

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29800811

We need a variety of oligosaccharides because different members of our gut bacteria need different oligosaccharides. I found when I was able to start eating again I had to ease into adding these because I bloated at first. As my good bacteria got established from eating the oligosaccharides the bloating and gas stop occurring. It took me 3 months before I felt no ill effects from getting oligosaccharides. I knew it was necessary to get my good bacteria established. When we have too much of one specific bacteria or if candida is in it’s pathogenic form we will have too many methane producing and sulfur digesting bacteria. This causes high hydroxy radical levels in the body and also causes high sulfate levels which will result in high ammonia levels in the bladder and digestive system. This causes Candida to go from commensal to pathogenic form. When Candida is in pathogenic form it alkalizes which feeds it even more. We have to work on restoring the ph of our bladder and digestive system back to acidic. A few strains of lactobacillus regulate the ph of our bladder. If we are low or deficient in them then we cannot fight pathogens because they prefer an alkaline environment. Our food does not get broke down as quickly and ferments instead of digesting.

Supplement and Nutrient Information I have accumulated.

This is not medical advice I am putting this here for informational and educational purposes , so this should not be taken as medical advice.

Know this you will not find accurate information from the FDA. They have work for big corporations pretty much since they have been founded. They will deliberately suppress real science while promoting corporate science. Nothing has changed even in our times. If you want accurate information on nutrition you will have to look somewhere other then the government. I am finding this is the case with governments around the world.

It is very important to eat organic. Most of our food has either had glyphosate applied or contains it. Glyphosate is a chelating agent and can cause nutrient deficiencies which has a major impact on our health and ability to heal. Not only that but glyphosate and glufonisate cause nutrients to go to the wrong areas of the body.

This a list of things I believe will help with healing especially Interstitial Cystitis.

If you have leaky gut then you may want to read the leaky gut section of this first because it is futile to try to heal Interstitial Cystitis with a leaky gut because the high histamine levels caused by leaky gut adds to the problem.

I prefer natural anti-inflammatory nutrients because NSAIDs can damage the gut if taken for too long which can lead to many forms of chronic illness.

Homeostasis is the goal. When you start feeling better I found it is good to stop taking a supplement daily and take maintenance doses. If not you will deplete enzymes and could end up making yourself sicker.

I have learned before you can heal you need to open the methylation pathways that are blocked are address ones that are being over expressed . Before you do that you have to detox because when they open up the body with start to detox at the cellular level. Once you detox them open the Methylation pathways. Then continue to detox for a while. It may irritate your bladder but it is necessary for healing.

So things that kill pathogens will make you herx. You need to ease into them and give you body time to detox and slowly build up the dose. When I first took mugwort it is very good at killing pathogens. I could only do three drops then had to wait three days. It took me three months to work up to the full dose and taking it daily. With a herx reaction you will also experience nausea and muscle tremors. Not sure why none of the sites mention that.

Methylene Blue – reduces bladder pain and spasms, reduces frequency of urination, reduces symptoms of depression. Used in cyanide poisoning. Reduces Alzheimer symptoms and has been shown to extend life span. Helps reverse sepsis. If you are G6PD deficient or anemic you should not take this.

Threonine – Helps prevent fatty liver, helps maintain proper protein balance in the body. Helps break down fats. Most vegetarians are low in this. It is important in maintaining the health of connective tissue and bone. Deficiency in threonine results in digestive system and low immune function. Threonine deficiency can cause fatty liver. Unfortunately the sources of threonine are meat and plants that are high in sulfur so we much address high sulfite levels that can be cause by gut dysbiosis and metabolic issues that cause high sulfite levels.

Selenium helps remove mercury and cadmium from the body, improves circulation, helps repair DNA. Also increases Glutathione which helps reduce histamines but do not take too much. Selenium improves cognitive function and improves sleep. It reduces the risk of cancer. Iodine deficiency can cause fatigue. Iodine deficiency can cause hair loss and dry skin. Feeling could is a symptoms of iodine deficiency. Most table salt that is fortified is fortified with potassium iodide which protects you from radiation. Too much potassium iodide can cause excess potassium levels in the body and thyroid disorders. Too much iodine period can cause thyroid issues. Too much potassium can cause kidney failure.

Cholesterol – needed in almost all parts of the body for healing and protecting the cells, cleans the lymph glands out. Brain cannot function without it, it is needed for bile production. The body cannot produce bile without it so your detxing abilities will be hindered if your cholesterol is low. High oxLDL is a sign of oxidative stress.

Lactoferrin – helps remove bad iron ions from the body. Heals the gut and helps balance microbiota.

Taking lactoferrin with the right lactobacilli improves bladder health. I say right lactobacillie because we need one that raises the acidity of the digestive system and bladder. Alkaline feeds pathogens and can make candida switch from commensal to pathogenic form. Lactoferrin inhibits plasminogen which will fight many pathogens including Lyme but should not be used in high amount or for too long because this can lead to fibrosis caused by plasminogen deficiency so those with fibroids, NAFL, or COPD may not benefit from taking this and most likely would see a negative inmpact on their health. We have to remember homeostasis is the goal. Lactoferrin inhibits the damage caused by fungal toxins. Lactoferrin helps with osteoporosis. When we have excess oxidative stress we get moleculed of iron that build up that the body cannot use. Lactoferrin chellates them and stabilizes the iron in our blood.

Zinc – helps remove heavy metals and helps with DNA repair do not take too much or it can remove copper from the body. Most are deficient because of the high glyphosate usage.

Zinc reduces risk of cardiovascular disease, reduces inflammation, reduces histamines, improves the health of the immune system and fights cancer. Deficiency in zinc can cause hormonal imbalance. If we are deficient in zinc our ability to heal is inhibited, we can experience hair loss and fatigue.

Omega 3 fatty acids – helps boost the livers ability to detox. Heals and protects the brain improving cognitive function. Improves the function of the anti-oxidant system. If a person has pyrole issues oils will make them ill, they will have gall bladder pain when consuming oils and may get indigestion. This must be corrected before taking oils or they will make you worse. Without lots of fat in our diets we will become very ill because just about every cell in the body uses and needs lipids. They protect the cells from pathogens and help transport nutrients to the cells. If our body fat gets below 12% it can negative effect our health. Omega 3s reduce oxidative stress and protect our heart and many other organs. One of the best sources of Omega 3 is cod liver oil. But it can raise histamines if it is old. If the capsules smell fishy they are old. I refrigerate mine as soon as I get them and I buy a brand that contains a little lemon juice which prevents it from oxidizing. Those with pyrrole issues have been found to be deficient in zinc, biotin, Alpha Tocopherol and vitamin B6. It can also be caused by gut dysbiosis.

https://articles.mercola.com/omega-3.aspx

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18383989

Reduce intake of Omega 6, most diets contain too much and when to high instead of reducing inflammation it will cause it.

Work on metabolic pathways. P5P, methylcobamin (methyl B12) and magnesium, are needed by many pathways. Molybednum and manganese are needed by many pathways but only take about three times a week. Too much can cause problems. P5P should be taken before the B12 so the B12 can be used by the body.

These 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.

I alternate between using Rooibos, dandelion and chamomille for detoxing. Alternating prevents you from depleting enzymes needed to detox. A teaspoon of baking soda in a cup of water is also great for detoxing it helps remove heavy metals, endotoxins and afloxin. Has been shown to lower risk of cancer. It is renal protective but will not reverse kidney disease. It also improves endurance. It normalizes urine ph and decreases uric acid. It raises ketones so those with diabetes should use with causion.

L-Glycine – usually low in vegetarians, has sedative affects, reduces stress hormones. Inhibits bacterial overgrowth in the body. Needed in many parts of the body for healing. Also needed for creatine production. Glycine – inhibits bacterial overgrowth in the bladder, helps remove ammonia, Needed for healing throughout the body. Also helps the adrenals by reducing stress hormone. Glycine protects pancreatic B cells from oxidative stress. It reduces inflammation in tendons. Glycine is neuro protective.

Tyrosine – works as a stimulant, reduces stress hormones. Reverses neurological decline. Improves cognitive function and cardiovascular health. Tyrosine is an important factor in digestion. Sulfation issues can cause interfere with gastron production because sulfation of tyrosine is needed. High sulfite levels from dysbiosis or metabolic issues will interfere with sulfation. Oxidative stress can negatively impact the function of tyrosine in the body this can result in a degradation of brain function, heart disease, hypoglycemia, and neurodegeneration. So we must reduce oxidative stress the best we can so it’s functions are not inhibited. Uric acid is a good scavenger of peroxynitrtrates so of you of high porphyrin levels you must address that because it interferes with the processes needed to reduce oxidative stress. B12 also helps prevent the oxidations of tyrosine by peroxynitrates and is needed to reduce the oxidation of tyrosine by peroxynitrate. Some have metabolic issues that prevent them from converting B12 to a form that can be used by the body. Herbicides and pesticides can cause phylketonuria. If this happens ammonia builds up in the body. Those who have this have to avoid meat , potatoes and other foods high in phenylalanine. Tyrosine helps when this occurs.

Arginine – reduces aging, reverses cardiovascular damage, promotes human growth hormone production and reduces inflammation. Arginine increases NO production and is important in cell signalling. Arginine increases insulin sensitivity which would prevent many forms of illnesses. During oxidative stress or sepsis arginine and citrulline can become deficient increasing the degree of illness.

Lysine – needed to produce serrotonine and most connective tissue throughout the body. Also helps remove ammonia from the body. Lysine is needed to convert body fat to energy. Decreases the outbreak of herpes. Reduces symptoms of mental disturbances. Lysine increases the absorption of calcium. Helps heal the gut.

Fiber – helps the body to produce butyric acid which protects the gut, helps the body break food down so that it can more readily use the energy from it. Helps heal mucus membrane. Sometimes you will see it called butyrate. It is also found in butter and ghee. Ghee is good for those sensitive to dairy. Fiber also helps remove toxins from the body. I am not going to cover this in detail because I am going to do a whole post on it. Those who have excess sulfur digesting bacteria should avoid the fermentable fibers like pectin, beta-glucans, gaur gum, innulin and oligofructose. Those who have leaky gut those are great at healing leaky gut. If you have both you will have to learn to balance your intake of them and work on balancing your gut bacteria, resistant starch helps with that.

Catalase – helps reduce hydrogen peroxide, helps protect body from damage, studies show it may increase life span. H2O2 is hydrogen peroxide. It is generated from oxidative stress, toxins like farm chemicals, lead, mercury, cadmium and when the body is unable to identify a pathogen it uses H2O2 to unleash and all out attack. This can damage many things in the body. It deteriorates mucous membranes, can break down the blood brain barrier causing brain swelling and make it easier for pathogens to enter the brain. Catalase is important to the integrity of our cells. Decreased levels of catalase can cause graying of the hair. Fats in the diet stimulate catalase production. If we are deficient in catalase we could develop diabetes. Vitamin D3 increases catalase. Resveratrol found in grape seed extract increases catalase. Zinc increases all antioxidant enzymes. Our gut bacteria needs manganese to produce catalase to protect themselves. We can get iron overload but appear to be anemic, curcumin chelates iron from the body. It is why over use of curcumin can make you anemic. But in cases of iron overload it would help restore catalase levels because iron overload depletes catalase. Lactoferrin reduces levels of bad iron while replenishing the good iron.

Chaga Mushroom – kills pathogens contains the most absorb able form of super oxide dismutase.

But super oxide dismutase is part of the antioxidant system and helps protect us from many types of illness. It protects us from toxins and free radicals. It protects our DNA from damage. If you are not healing you may need SOD. If you are deficient in manganese you cannot detox ammonia. SOD needs manganese to detox ammonia.

Vitamin A – helps heal mucous membrane in the bladder and gut. Helps with healing throughout the body. Vitamin A helps keep the skin and eyes healthy. There are too many benefits to list. Measles is caused by a vitamin A deficiency which explains why when there were measles parties when I was a child I could not get measle I ate lots of carrots. They have found synthetic vitamin A increases risk of cancer. Those who are vegetarians need sources of vitamin A the body can readily convert. Plants that contain A-carotene, B-carotenoids, and B-cryptoxanthan will convert to retinol in the body. Consuming fat with sources of Vitamin A makes it more readily absorbed by the body.

Coconut oil contains Monolaurin – protects and heals the brain, kills many pathogens. Good source of phospholipids. Reduces inflammation, reduce risk of cardiovascular disease, reduces oxidative stress. It contain most of the electrolytes needed by the body. It helps fight many infections and can cross the blood brain barrier. It to has too many benefits to list.

The right fats like those found in coconut oil are very important to good health. You must make sure you address porphyria issues because this causes pyrrole issues and can cause phenylketonuria. Coconut oil reduces amyloid-b which causes Alzheimer’s and amyloidosis which can be deadly. Amyloidosis can develop when there are high toxin levels in the body including afloxin and endotoxins. Coconut oil also protects us from diabetes. Coconut oil switches our renal system to an anti-inflammatory state from and inflamed one.

Biotin – helps reduce carbon dioxide levels, needed for cell growth and repair. Helps reduce MS symptoms. Biotin is needed for energy production in the body , it is water soluble and cannot be stored by the body. It helps with the break down of proteins and fatty acids synthesis. It is important for nail and hair health. Biotin deficiency causes inflammation, and T cell imbalance. The very ones commonly found in interstitial cystitis and many forms of chronic illness like lupus. Biotin deficiency causes lactic acidosis. Biotin is important in the proper function of the VMAT receptor. When the VMAT receptor is not functioning right it results in many types of mental illnesses. Biotin is responsible for dopamine homeostasis.

Methylene Blue – reduces bladder pain and spasms, reduces frequency of urination, reduces symptoms of depression. Used in cyanide poisoning. Reduces Alzheimer symptoms and has been shown to extend life span. Should not be taken if you are G6PD deficient or anemic. Methylene blue helps with sepsis. If you are taking DHEA you should not use methylene blue. Also those with hypertension should not use methylene blue it can make it worse. When under oxidative stress from toxins, infection, pathogens or even stress in life we can develop high levels of Fe3. This inhibits the bodies ability to transport and use oxygen. Methylene Blue restores the blood to normal. !!Be careful methylene blue inhibits MAO so can cause serotonin toxicity. Also methylene blue should not be taken if you are taking medication !! It can be purchased in the section for urinary infection because it also helps fight renal infection. One brand I can think of is Urolene , Uribel or something like that and I think the other was Azure. Methylene blue dissolves amyloid plaque so it may help with amyloidosis. Methylene blue improves memory. Methylene blue protects the heart. You may not see methylene blue on the package it may say methylthioniniun chloride. Copied this information on methylene blue which may help find it. It inhibits mast cells so should help with MCAS

Brand names and proprietary formulas of methylene blue. Desmoid piller, Desmoidpillen, Panatone, Urolene Blue, and Vitableu. Its synonyms include Phenothiazine-5-ium, 3,7-bis(dimethylamino)-, chloride (9CI), C.I. Basic Blue 9 (8CI), methylthionine chloride, methylthioninium chloride, tetramethylthionine chloride, swiss blue, aizen methylene blue, and C.I. 52015

Quercetin – heals the gut and bladder linings, also helps repair nerve damage. Those who over methylate may have problems with this so address metabolic issues before taking it. I prefer getting things from natural sources. I found I usually don’t react to them when in foods we can consume and often times the nutrient needs the cofactors in the foods to be absorbed by the body. Often times the cofactors compliment the nutrient. When something is isolated from a plant it acts more like a drug then a nutrient which creates it’s own set of problems, especially if you have metabolic issues. Quercetin fights inflammation, fights free radicals, reduces histamines, improves heart health, reduces pain and fights cancer.

Vitamin D – helps with depression, helps with healing throughout the body. Helps with bone repair. Also helps with many autoimmune diseases. Vitamin D is important in the regulation of insulin levels. If you have gut dysbiosis, excess oxidative stress or metabolic issues then taking vitamin D3 is usually useless. You need to address those to get the full benefits of vitamin D . Too much vitamin D can cause oxalates. Your skin makes vitamin D when you get sunlight, this is why lifeguards have one of the highest rates of kidney stones. Most information I have seen says not to get over 4,000 IU of vitamin D a day. If you have high levels of glyphosate or glufosinate then you will not be able to convert your D to D3 and would benefit from taking D3. The body cannot absorb vitamin D unless taken with an oil. In order for out bodies to make vitamin D and convert it to forms needed by the body, we need to get adequate amounts of cholesterol. If you are low in magnesium your will be intolerant to vitamin D and get ill from it.

Porphyria is the illness, pyrroluria and kryptopyrolluria are symptoms of the illness.

This is not medical advice and should not be taken as such. I am posting this for informational and educational purposes.

Porphyria

If you have problems with consuming fats, like gall bladder pain, indigestion or feeling ill after eating them you most likely have Porphyria. You may be told you have Pyrolluria but it is a symptom of Porphyria.

Many know this as Pyrolluria or Kryptopyrolluria. You do not see updated research on those disorders because they discovered the high pyrroles was caused by a deficiency in various enzymes needed to break down uric acid. It causes high porphyrin levels. If you have Pyrroluria then look at the link and you will see the symptoms are the same. Pyrolluria is a symptom but not the problem. There are many things that can cause Porphyria , infection, drugs, chemicals, excess iron, stress, and to much sun. Fasting too much can also cause it. This can cause high ammonia levels because phenylalanine cannot be recycled.

Being able to identify when others show the fruits of the spirit will make it harder for those appearing as angels of light to deceive us.

IMG_20140719_205356
Fruits of the spirit. No matter how spiritual someone may seem if they are not showing fruits of the spirit then be cautious. If we are not or those we associate with are not showing the fruits of the spirit then it shows we or they need to write God’s word on our hearts and let it guide us. We must remember Satan will put wolves among us and they will be hard to identify but they will not show the fruits as those who are applying God’s word and writing it in our hearts.
Galations 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
Of all the fruits love is the most important one.
1 Corinthians 13:13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13:4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
Joy comes from remaining faithful no matter what we endure. Joy because we know we have salvation. We have faith that our king will save us. So if the person is a complainer or cannot see the good but only the bad be cautious. Also try and help them to learn to put faith in the promises of the future in store for those who remain faithful.
James 1:2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds,3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.
1 Peter 1:8 Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy,9 for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls. We build the joy by sharing God,s word and doing his will.
Knowing God’s word and being able to give an answer for our hope gives us happiness.
Proverbs 15:23 A person finds joy in giving an apt reply— and how good is a timely word!
Hebrews 12:2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the torture steak, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. How to have complete joy.
We need to keep in mind this is all temporary and things will get better much better.
John 16:22 So with you: Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy. 23 In that day you will no longer ask me anything. Very truly I tell you, my Father will give you whatever you ask in my name. 24 Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.
God wrote his word because he knew what we would endure and he knew we would need guidance to get through it and assurance of the future.
Psalm 119:111 Your statutes are my heritage forever; they are the joy of my heart.
Peace our future hangs on pursuing it. If we see acts of violance and see people planning to do harm and we do not report it then we are not persuing peace. We are avoiding the possible persecution that may come from it. Pursuing peace means we do not return the acts of violance.
Psalm 37:37 Consider the blameless, observe the upright; a future awaits those who seek peace. Being peaceable helps keep us from stumbling. We must completely trust Jehovah. This gives us an inner peace no matter what we endure.
Psalm 119:165 Great peace have those who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble. Isaiah 26:3 You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.
Romans 15:13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Peace from God protects our minds.
Philipians 4:6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. God’s people would be peace makers. So they would not incite, condone in or tolerate acts that would promote violence.
We need to pay attention does the person strive for peace or do the stir up contentions?
Matthew 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. Anyone can love those who love them but ot takes a true person of God to love those who do not love them.
Do they let love guide all they do?
Matthew 5:43“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbori and hate your enemy.’ 44But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? 48Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
Forbearance the quality of someone who is patient and able to deal with a difficult person or situation without becoming angry.
James 1:19 Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger;
Because we are in the last days we may as well be patient and suffer as righteous and not unrighteous so we will have a future hope. So a lack of patience is not a good quality and is not a fruit of the spirit. Patience and endurance is are fruits of the spirit.
1 Peter 2:19 For this is a gracious thing, when, mindful of God, one endures sorrows while suffering unjustly. 20 For what credit is it if, when you sin and are beaten for it, you endure? But if when you do good and suffer for it you endure, this is a gracious thing in the sight of God. 21 For to this you have been called, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, so that you might follow in his steps. If we are nut patient it shows we are not humble. Ecclesiastes 7:8 Better is the end of a thing than its beginning, and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit. We have to keep in mind Jehovah is patient and has given us an oppurtunity to repent, other have the same oppurtunity.
We need to be patient with those who do not yet know the truth they may be a spiritual brother or sister some day.
2 Peter 2:9 The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. Those who refuse that oppurtunity will reap their reward. Revelation 21:8 But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”
Being kind can be difficult in these times but stop and think if we are kind to those who are not which one will God judge? If both people are cruel who will be judged?
Proverbs 11:17 A man who is kind benefits himself, but a cruel man hurts himself.
Proverbs 19:17 Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will repay him for his deed.
We are to be kind to everyone.
Galations 6:10 So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.
If we are not kind we could be cut of from the future promises.
Romans 11:Note then the kindness and the severity of God: severity toward those who have fallen, but God’s kindness to you, provided you continue in his kindness. Otherwise you too will be cut off.
I have found this to be true no matter how down and out I am when I do acts of kindness it picks me up.
Acts 20:35 In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”
We should keep in mind in mind that God performed the ultimate act of kindness so we should do our best to imitate his kindness.
Romans 5:But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
When someone is burdened down we are to bear some of that burden when possible. Even if all we have to give them is an ear to listen. Having someone to talk to in times of trouble means more then most realize. So when someone is going through tough times do we show the fruits of the spirit and pick them up or do we avoid them and look down on them? Avoiding someone who is in need is not a fruit of the spirit.
Galations 6:2 Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.
1 Timothy 6:18 They are to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share, If someone needs help and we do nothing it is a sin to not offer our kindness.
James 4:17 So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.
Romans 15:1 We who are strong have an obligation to bear with the failings of the weak, and not to please ourselves.
In the bible where goodness was referred to it meant deliberate preference of right to wrong, the firm and persistent resistance of all moral evil, and the choosing and following of all moral good. So it pretty much means blameless. One of the things we must do is not complain or argue.
Philipians 2:14Do everything without grumbling or arguing, 15so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.” Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky 16as you hold firmly to the word of life. And then I will be able to boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor in vain.
Guarding our tongues is very important but it says we must speak the truth in our hearts, so we should never justify things with false reasoning in our hearts. If we give an oath or promise we are to stick to it no matter how difficult. If we do those things the bible says we will not be shaken.  Do we or someone we associate with guard their tongue?
Psalm 15:1 Lord, who may dwell in your sacred tent? Who may live on your holy mountain? 2 The one whose walk is blameless, who does what is righteous, who speaks the truth from their heart; 3 whose tongue utters no slander, who does no wrong to a neighbor, and casts no slur on others; 4 who despises a vile person but honors those who fear the Lord; who keeps an oath even when it hurts, and does not change their mind; 5 who lends money to the poor without interest; who does not accept a bribe against the innocent. Whoever does these things will never be shaken. The tent of Jehovah is a prize worth working for.
Revelation 7:15 15 That is why they are before the throne of God, and they are rendering him sacred service day and night in his temple; and the One seated on the throne will spread his tent over them.
Revelation 21 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the former heaven and the former earth had passed away, and the sea is no more. 2 I also saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God and prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. 4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”
Faithfulness, the apostle Paul defined faith. Do we or others we are concerned about put faith in God’s word or do they seek answers from man.
Hebrews 11:1Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. We are to believe in our hearts. If we let our jearts be filled with things like gear anger resentment or any other negative things how could we have room for faith, then how could we have the courage to share that faith?
Romans 10:10 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. We aquire faith by learning and hearing Gods word and listen to the teachings of Christ.
Do we or those we are associating with seek more wisdom in God’s word or do they rely on their own understanding? Putting faith in oneself or man is not a fruit of the spirit. When criticized or persecuted for their faith do they remain strong or shrink back. Those who have the fruits of the spirit will have strong faith.
Romans 10:17 So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ. We should not put our faith in man many times mans solutions are short lived orvplagued with problems. Only God has the power and wisdom to give real answers and solutions.
1Corinthians 2:5 That your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men but in the power of God. If we do not have faith we will not be accepted by God. Which stands to reason. It is no different then saying we do not believe him. Mark 16:16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.
Hebrews 10:38-39 But my righteous one shall live by faith, and if he shrinks back, my soul has no pleasure in him.” But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who have faith and preserve their souls. If we have real faith we will work towards that faith.
Do you are others you associate with have works that show they have faith? If they do not share the truth or shrink back when challenged on their faith it is showing a lack of the fruits.
James 2:18 But someone will say, “You have faith and I have works.” Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.
If we do not share our faith continue to build on it by studying and hearing God’s word our faith will die. We must also apply that faith by always doing Jehovah’s will and not succumbing to doubts or fears. If a person has doubts or fear it is not a fruit of the spirit.
James 2:17 So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
Thessalonians 1:2-3 “We give thanks to God always for all of you, constantly mentioning you in our prayers, remembering before our God and Father your work of faith and labor of love and steadfastness of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.”
Gentleness means we won’t even speak of bad things let alone
do them. Gentleness means we don’t force things on others but we will give them gentle answers. If someone likes to argue or debate that is not a fruit of the spirit.
Titus 3:2 To speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people.
2 Timothy 2:24-26 quarrelsome but kind to everyone, able to teach, patiently enduring evil, correcting his opponents with gentleness. God may perhaps grant them repentance leading to a knowledge of the truth, and they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, after being captured by him to do his will.
Galations 5:23 Gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. If we are gentle we are precious to God.
We are to figuratively wear gentleness. So a fruit of the spirit is being gentle and kind. Not firm and harsh.
1 Peter 3:4 But let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious. We are to be gentle with everyone.
1 Peter 2:18 Servants, be subject to your masters with all respect, not only to the good and gentle but also to the unjust.
Self-control involve overcoming our human imperfections like anger, selfishness, greed, the list goes on. Our temper.
Proverbs 11:A fool always loses his temper, But a wise man holds it back.
Do they put physical things over spiritual. Putting physical things first is not a fruit of the spirit.
1 Thessalonions 4:3-7 For this is the will of God, your sanctification; that is, that you abstain from sexual immorality; that each of you know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor, not in lustful passion, like the Gentiles who do not know God
1 Corinthians 7:9 But if they do not have self-control, let them marry; for it is better to marry than to burn with passion.
Watching what we say. A tongue that stirs up contention, or does not offer comfort is not a fruit of the spirit. Also one who holds a grudge is not showing the fruits of the spirit.
Proverbs 21:23 He who guards his mouth and his tongue, Guards his soul from troubles Proverbs 18:7 A fool’s mouth is his ruin, And his lips are the snare of his soul. Not getting violent.
Matthew 5:39-40 “But I say to you, do not resist an evil person; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also. “If anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, let him have your coat also.
Controlling hatred not even letting it into our hearts. Hating others or looking down on them is not a fruit of the spirit.
Luke 6:27-29 “But I say to you who hear, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. “Whoever hits you on the cheek, offer him the other also; and whoever takes away your coat, do not withhold your shirt from him either.
Fear is not a fruit of the spirit.
Isaiah 35:3 Strengthen the feeble hands, steady the knees that give way; 4 say to those with fearful hearts, “Be strong, do not fear; your God will come, he will come with vengeance; with divine retribution he will come to save you.”
Do they have inner peace when under tribulation or persecution? Inner peace is a fruit of the spirit.
John 14:27 27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
Matthew 6:25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin.29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith?31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Fear of death is not a fruit of the spirit. It involves faith in the future promises.
John 11:25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die;26 and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?” Matthew 10:28 And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in the firey pit.
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
1 Corinthians 15:26 The last enemy to be destroyed is death.
To live again we must live by spirit. Do we or those we associate with live by spirit letting God’s word guide them?
Romans 8:13 For if you live according to the flesh you will die, but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.
Materialism is not a fruit of the spirit.
Fear of losing what we have. 1 Timothy 6:7 For we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world.
John 5:28 28 Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice 29 and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.
Do we or those we associate with have complete faith or do we have doubts. Doubt is not a fruit of the spirit.Controlling doubt If we let Jehovah’s word guide us and do his will we have no reason to have doubts. If we have doubts we will tend to lean on our own understanding.
Proverbs 3:5-8 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord, and turn away from evil. It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones. If we have doubts it will it will cloud our thinking, it could hinder us from making the right decisions. We will be easily swayed like wave on the ocean when blown by the wind.
James 1:5-8 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
Matthew 21:21 And Jesus answered them, “Truly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what has been done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ it will happen. Isaiah 41:10 Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
I could go on and on but if you are blessed with the spirit we are to produce fruits from the spirit. That means we will do what we can to obey Jehovah’s laws and teach others also. Our fruits will speak for us. We are commanded to bear fruits.
Matthew 3:8 “Therefore bear fruit in keeping with repentance; Matthew 12:33 “Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or make the tree bad and its fruit bad; for the tree is known by its fruit.
You will know a true person of God by their fruits. What is it like around them? Do they try to work toward peace and live peacefully with others? Do they strive to teach others God’s word and help build their faith are do they only worry about themselves?
Matthew 7:16 By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles? Gentleness.
James 3:13 Who among you is wise and understanding? Let him show by his good behavior his deeds in the gentleness of wisdom.
Helping others
Titus 3:18 Our people must also learn to engage in good deeds to meet pressing needs, so that they will not be unfruitful.
James 2:14-26 What use is it, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but he has no works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is without clothing and in need of daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and be filled,” and yet you do not give them what is necessary for their body, what use is that?
Do they show they are letting the wisdom from above guide them? When the seed does not grow and produce fruit it is not showing the fruits.
James 3:17 But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, unwavering, without hypocrisy.
Draw other to the truth.
Matthew 13:23 “And the one on whom seed was sown on the good soil, this is the man who hears the word and understands it; who indeed bears fruit and brings forth, some a hundredfold, some sixty, and some thirty.” Spiritual things and Gods will will come first.
Romans 8:13-14 for if you are living according to the flesh, you must die; but if by the Spirit you are putting to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.
Galations 5:24 Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
Over coming our errs. Looking at our reflection in the mirror of God’s word and seeing our error and working to overcome them is a fruit. If someone is avoiding overcoming their error they are not showing the fruit.
Romans 6:11-14 Even so consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus. Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its lusts, and do not go on presenting the members of your body to sin as instruments of unrighteousness; but present yourselves to God as those alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God.
Increase in knowledge and applying it is a fruit.
Collossians 10: so that you will walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, to please Him in all respects, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God;
Their actions will demonstrate their love.  Do their actions and deeds show they know love and are truthful.
1John 3:18 Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth.
Characteristics of those producing the fruits.
James 3:17 But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere.
Do they try and draw others to God’s word so they can know him and have faith? Do they acknowledge God’s name and declare it?
Hebrews 13:15 Through him then let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name.
Love would guide all they do.
1 Corinthians 13:4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
Joy and peace no matter what their circumstances.
Romans 15:13 13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
They will have endurance and patience.
Collossians 1:11 being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience,
Bragging, harshness, those are not fruit of the spirit. We should be humble and gentle.
Ephesians 4:2 Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.
Does the person persevere under trials and tribulations or do they complain and struggle to hold their faith? They would be able to persevere.
2Peter 1:5-7 5 For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge;6 and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness;7 and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love.
Their trust in God will be clear they will not turn to man or immoral things or the world but to Jehovah and let his word guide them and will do his will not their own. In doing so they will know what to do and will not be easily moved from doing Gods will.
Jeremiah 17:7-8 “But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,whose confidence is in him.They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream.It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”
Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
They will have no doubt about God’s and Jesus love.
Romans 8:35-39 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written, “For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

We do not want to be one of those not producing the fruits. Matthew 7:19 Every tree that brings not forth good fruit is cut down, and cast into the fire.

 

 

 

 

What about the forgotten or lost books of the bible?

IMG_20140719_205356
Only Jesus could open the scrolls. People use this scripture to try to say there will be other scrolls. The scrolls mentioned are not for man but for our king Jesus Christ.
Revelations 5:2 5 But one of the elders said to me: “Stop weeping. Look! The Lion of the tribe of Judah, the root of David, has conquered so as to open the scroll and its seven seals.”
We know that final the seal will be opened in the time of judgement.
Revelation 20:12 And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and scrolls were opened. But another scroll was opened; it is the scroll of life. The dead were judged out of those things written in the scrolls according to their deeds. These scrolls will be used to judge those living in judgement time and those who are resurrected. 2Timothy 4:4 I solemnly charge you before God and Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by his manifestation and his Kingdom:
Judgement will start when the great harlot which is false religion has been destroyed.
Revelations 19: After this I heard what seemed to be a loud voice of a great crowd in heaven. They said: “Praise Jah! The salvation and the glory and the power belong to our God, 2 because his judgments are true and righteous. For he has executed judgment on the great prostitute who corrupted the earth with her sexual immorality, and he has avenged the blood of his slaves that is on her hands.” 3 And right away for the second time they said: “Praise Jah! And the smoke from her goes on ascending forever and ever.”
The scrolls will be used to judge the unrighteous who died. Those who were righteous when they died will continue to live when resurrected.
Now that we have identified what those scrolls are it dispells the myth many religions have that claim the scroll has been opened and revealed to their supposed prophets.
The books of the bible have been sealed we are not to add to or take from them. So any other supposed books are inspired by demons. We have to remember the demons know the bible also. Satan quoted the bible when he was trying to tempt Jesus.
Revelation 22:18 I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this scroll: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to that person the plagues described in this scroll. 19 And if anyone takes words away from this scroll of prophecy, God will take away from that person any share in the tree of life and in the Holy City, which are described in this scroll.
Here are some scriptures to help identify false teachers. Notice they will not follow Jesus teaching but will have their own.
1Timothy 4:1 The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. 2 Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron. 3 They forbid people to marry and order them to abstain from certain foods, which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and who know the truth. 4 For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, 5 because it is consecrated by the word of God and prayer.
This is what the results of those teachings will be.
2Timothy 3:3 But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.6 They are the kind who worm their way into homes and gain control over gullible women, who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires, 7 always learning but never able to come to a knowledge of the truth. 8 Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so also these teachers oppose the truth. They are men of depraved minds, who, as far as the faith is concerned, are rejected. 9 But they will not get very far because, as in the case of those men, their folly will be clear to everyone.
We must worship in truth or God will not except our worship.
1Corinthians 10:You cannot be drinking the cup of Jehovah and the cup of demons; you cannot be partaking of “the table of Jehovah” and the table of demons. Collisions 2:8See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.
Most know Jesus is seated on the throne so we know the gift of prophesying has been done away with. The gifts where a shadow of what was to come in the new system. Jesus and the apostles demonstrated what God can do. The proof is no longer needed we have it recorded in God’s word. God still performs miracles for people but the gifts the apostles had were done away with when the last of them died.
1Corinthians 13:8 Love never fails. But if there are gifts of prophecy, they will be done away with; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away with.
So what about modern day faith healers. They were prophesied.
Matthew 24:24 For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will perform great signs and wonders so as to mislead, if possible, even the chosen ones.
Any teachings other then what Jesus taught are not from God. Especially any prophets because those gifts were done away with. All the knowledge we need leading up to the end of this system is in the bible.
Galations 1:12 11 I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that the gospel I preached is not of human origin. 12 I did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it; rather, I received it by revelation from Jesus Christ.
Jesus wants our knowledge to be complete. If there were other books he would have stated that. He would have said there would be other books but he said we are not to add to or take from God’s word so we know that any other scrolls are teachings of demons and not from God.

Why guard our hearts?

If you don't read it how can you have faith.
Guarding our hearts. Why should we guard our hearts? The bible teaches use that everything that comes out of us comes from the heart. So everything we do is affected by the heart.
Proverbs 4:23 Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.
God looks at our heart when judging us so it is even more reason to guard it.
1Samuel 16:7 But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.”
Even more reason to guard the heart is the bible tells us it can be deceitful. Our hearts can even become hardened towards Jehovah and lead us astray.
Psalm 95:7 For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. Today, if you hear his voice, 8 do not harden your hearts, as at Meribah, as on the day at Massah in the wilderness,
Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it? 10“I the Lord search the heart and examine the mind, to reward each person according to their conduct, according to what their deeds deserve.”
If our heart is wise we can make Gods rejoice.
Proverbs 23:15 My son, if your heart is wise, My heart will rejoice—indeed, I myself; 16 Yes, my inmost being will rejoice When your lips speak right things.
So what things can have a bad impact on our hearts. One thing we learn that can do that is. Not appreciating what Jehovah has provided for us. We need to appreciate what we do have.
Exodus 16:3 and the people of Israel said to them, “Would that we had died by the hand of the Lord in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the meat pots and ate bread to the full, for you have brought us out into this wilderness to kill this whole assembly with hunger.”
Philipians 2:14 Do all things without grumbling or disputing,
Putting spiritual things over wealth guards our hearts.
Hebrews 13:5 Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” 6 So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid What can mere mortals do to me?”
Speaking about bad things can harden our hearts.
Ephesians 4:31 Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. 32 Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.
When we have a short coming we must work on overcoming it so we don’t get overtaken by it.
James 1:13 When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; 14 but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed. 15 Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.
False pride can affect our hearts. Seeking the glory from others instead of giving God glory.
Ezekial 28:17 Your heart was proud because of your beauty; you corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor. I cast you to the ground; I exposed you before kings, to feast their eyes on you.
To protect the heart we need to focus on spiritual things.
2:Corinthians 10:4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ
Instead of seeing the bad in everyone and everything try to find the good in all situations.
Philipians 4:8 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
Do not get overwhelmed by anxieties and fears of life. Put things in prayer to Jehovah.
Philipians 4:6 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Stay away from people and things that God would not approve of the best we can.
Collossians 3:Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry.
Always let God’s word guide us, we should never lean on our own thinking. We need to keep in mind we are imperfect. Proverbs 3:Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. 6 In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Joshua 1:8 This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.
Admit we are imperfect so we will be more aware and do not get over confident.
1John 1:If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
Try our best to imitate Jesus.
Galations 5:And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
Never give up learning about Jehovah God.
Jeremiah 29:13 You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.
Psalm 37:4 Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Do not hate anyone. Not even your enemies.
Matthew 5:44 But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. 46 For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? 47 And if you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? 48 You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
Do your best to avoid anger.
James 1:For the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God. James 1:19 Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; Proverbs 15:1 A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.
Learn to leave anger go because it can open the way for Satan.
Ephesians 4:26 Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, 27 and give no opportunity to the devil. Matthew 5:22 But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment; whoever insults his brother will be liable to the council; and whoever says, ‘You fool!’ will be liable to the hell of fire.
Do not befriend ill tempered people or vengeful people.
Proverbs 22:24 Make no friendship with a man given to anger, nor go with a wrathful man,
Everything we do should bring praise for God and not ourselves.
1Corinthians 10:31 So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
If we do not guard our hearts we become no better then the ones who tortured and killed Jesus.
Matthew 13:14 Indeed, in their case the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled that says: “‘“You will indeed hear but never understand, and you will indeed see but never perceive.” 15 For this people’s heart has grown dull, and with their ears they can barely hear, and their eyes they have closed, lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears and understand with their heart and turn, and I would heal them.’
Remember if we reject Jesus and his teachings we reject God.
John 12:48 The one who rejects me and does not receive my words has a judge; the word that I have spoken will judge him on the last day.
Always keep in mind Satan is on the prowl so we need Gods word to guide us.
1Peter 5:8 Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. John 14:26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.
If we successfully guard our hearts we will receive the gift of life.
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Also by guarding our hearts we can better answer the reason for our faith. God will remember the things we have done for him.
1Peter 3:13 Who is going to harm you if you are eager to do good? 14 But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. “Do not fear their threats ; do not be frightened.”c 15 But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.
But do this with gentleness and respect, 16 keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander. 17 For it is better, if it is God’s will, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil. 18 For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive in the Spirit.
Psalm 55:Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and He shall sustain thee. He shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.
Hebrews 6:10 God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.
We are in the last days so we are going to suffer no matter what wouldn’t it be better to suffer as a righteous person?
1peter 4:1 4:1 So, since Christ suffered in the flesh, you also arm yourselves with the same attitude, because the one who has suffered in the flesh has finished with sin,
Also we must have faith that no matter what happens God do whats best.
Hebrews 11:6 Now without faith it is impossible to please him, for the one who approaches God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.

Why many do not know how they got Lyme.

 

Why many do not remember being bit by a tick. Because they were not bitten. Lyme is now asexaully transmitted disease. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26489537
Ticks aren’t the only insects that can transmit it so can flies, fleas and mosquitoes. http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/BF01711648#page-1

Why violence is going to get worse.

For those who study the bible all the things causing the violence are because they no longer draw close to God. I have included the scriptures at the end of this post. All of the things causing man to become violent is because they no longer feel they will be held accountable.
The beginning of this I am showing what is causing people to get so violet outside of the bible. The things man is doing that is causing so much violence to occur. Our brains are under constant assault now days.
Why violent acts are going to get worse. Chemicals we come in contact with.
Our gut health is being destroyed.
aluminum which cannot be avoided if you are getting vaccinations.
Toxins and the brain
Flouride which is found in most treated drinking water, toothpaste and mouth wash.
Pesticides and herbicides.
vaccinations cause encephalitis
Encephalitis causes dementia
BPAs
Flouride destroys the brain.
Electromagnetic Fields
People will try to discredit these results but the military did a similar study years ago.
Cell phones
Glycotoxins and dementia
Endocrine issues cause dementia. Aspertame has effects on the endocrine system.
Diacetyl the fake butter used in popcorn.
Transfat and cognitive decline.
Fortunately these have been ordered to be phased out but is still found in some products.
Many drugs cause violent and aggressive behavior statings is one of them.

As people move farther away from God they no longer feel they will be held accountable. So they will seek their own interest and their own justice. They will follow beliefs not taught by the bible.

(2 Timothy 3:1-7) 3 But know this, that in the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here. 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, self-assuming, haughty, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, disloyal, 3 having no natural affection, not open to any agreement, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, without love of goodness, 4 betrayers, headstrong, puffed up [with pride], lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godly devotion but proving false to its power; and from these turn away. 6 For from these arise those men who slyly work their way into households and lead as their captives weak women loaded down with sins, led by various desires, 7 always learning and yet never able to come to an accurate knowledge of truth. . .

(1 Timothy 4:1) However, the inspired utterance says definitely that in later periods of time some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to misleading inspired utterances and teachings of demons,

(2 Corinthians 11:12-15) 12 Now what I am doing I will still do, that I may cut off the pretext from those who are wanting a pretext for being found equal to us in the office of which they boast. 13 For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. 14 And no wonder, for Satan himself keeps transforming himself into an angel of light. 15 It is therefore nothing great if his ministers also keep transforming themselves into ministers of righteousness. But their end shall be according to their works. . .

It will become more and more obvious who worships in truth and who does not. God will expose the sins of those who do not in the last days which we are living in.

(2 Thessalonians 2:8-12) 8 Then, indeed, the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will do away with by the spirit of his mouth and bring to nothing by the manifestation of his presence. 9 But the lawless one’s presence is according to the operation of Satan with every powerful work and lying signs and portents 10 and with every unrighteous deception for those who are perishing, as a retribution because they did not accept the love of the truth that they might be saved. 11 So that is why God lets an operation of error go to them, that they may get to believing the lie, 12 in order that they all may be judged because they did not believe the truth but took pleasure in unrighteousness. . .

(Romans 1:18-21) 18 For God’s wrath is being revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who are suppressing the truth in an unrighteous way, 19 because what may be known about God is manifest among them, for God made it manifest to them. 20 For his invisible [qualities] are clearly seen from the world’s creation onward, because they are perceived by the things made, even his eternal power and Godship, so that they are inexcusable; 21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify him as God nor did they thank him, but they became empty-headed in their reasonings and their unintelligent heart became darkened. . .

One thing that would expose those who do not worship in truth is they would have unnatural desires.

(Romans 1:24-27) 24 Therefore God, in keeping with the desires of their hearts, gave them up to uncleanness, that their bodies might be dishonored among them, 25 even those who exchanged the truth of God for the lie and venerated and rendered sacred service to the creation rather than the One who created, who is blessed forever. Amen. 26 That is why God gave them up to disgraceful sexual appetites, for both their females changed the natural use of themselves into one contrary to nature; 27 and likewise even the males left the natural use of the female and became violently inflamed in their lust toward one another, males with males, working what is obscene and receiving in themselves the full recompense, which was due for their error. . .

(Matthew 24:9-14) . . .. 10 Then, also, many will be stumbled and will betray one another and will hate one another. 11 And many false prophets will arise and mislead many; 12 and because of the increasing of lawlessness the love of the greater number will cool off. 13 But he that has endured to the end is the one that will be saved. 14 And this good news of the kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations; and then the end will come. . .

Time frame we are in , in reference to the end of this system of things.

If you don't read it how can you have faith.
This is not finished I am doing it to show the time frame we are in. We need to compare our time to times past when God brought destruction on peoples. As I was trying to do this many things come up so I had to put it together quickly. Those who remain silent and said nothing for the down trodden and would not speak up for them will also be held accountable. Their lack of concern reveals a lot about their heart condition to Jehovah.
It seems things are nearing this now. Countries that were enemies are starting to be allies.
1 Thessolonians 5:1Now, brothers and sisters, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, 2for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. 3While people are saying, “Peace and safety,” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.
One of the final acts of rebellion man will hand their authority over to the United Nations .
Matthew 24:15“So when you see the abomination of desolation spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand), 16then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. 17Let the one who is on the housetop not go down to take what is in his house, 18and let the one who is in the field not turn back to take his cloak. 19And alas for women who are pregnant and for those who are nursing infants in those days! 20Pray that your flight may not be in winter or on a Sabbath. 21For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, and never will be. 22And if those days had not been cut short, no human being would be saved. But for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short.

Things that have brought others to destruction. This keys us into the time frame we are in concerning the destruction of this system.

Ezekial 16:49 Behold, this was the guilt of your sister Sodom: she and her daughters had pride, dexcess of food, and prosperous ease, but did not aid the poor and needy. 50 They were haughty and edid an abomination before me. So fI removed them, when I saw it.
Genesis 6:13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.
Deuteronomy 710 But those who hate him he will repay to their face by destruction; he will not be slow to repay to their face those who hate him.
11 Therefore, take care to follow the commands, decrees and laws I give you today.
Deuteronomy 7:26 Do not bring a detestable thing into your house or you, like it, will be set apart for destruction. Regard it as vile and utterly detest it, for it is set apart for destruction.
Not following God’s guidance on appointing spiritual leaders.
1 Kings 13 33 Even after this, Jeroboam did not change his evil ways, but once more appointed priests for the high places from all sorts of people. Anyone who wanted to become a priest he consecrated for the high places. 34 This was the sin of the house of Jeroboam that led to its downfall and to its destruction from the face of the earth.

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.

Proverbs 31:8 ESV / 3 helpful votes

Open your mouth for the mute, for the rights of all who are destitute.

We are seeing this occur now, the corruptions is becoming clearer and clearer. The inability of man to be able to exist without God’s guidance is becoming clearer and clearer.

Philippians 3:19 ESV

Their end is destruction, their god is their belly, and they glory in their shame, with minds set on earthly things.

2 Peter 3:10 ESV

But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed.
It is why we are told the way is hard, just as it was for the apostles. We were not promised it would be easy.

Matthew 7:13-14 ESV

“Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.
Matthew 24:36 “But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only. 37 For as were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. 38 For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, 39 and they were unaware until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. 40 Then two men will be in the field; one will be taken and one left. 41 Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken and one left. 42 Therefore, stay awake, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming. 43 But know this, that if the master of the house had known in what part of the night the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and would not have let his house be broken into. 44 Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.

1 Corinthians 6:9-10 ESV

Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.

Matthew 24:9 “Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. 10 At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, 11 and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. 12 Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, 13 but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.

1 Corinthians 15:20But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. 21For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man. 22For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive. 23But each in turn: Christ, the firstfruits; then, when he comes, those who belong to him. 24Then the end will come, when he hands over the kingdom to God the Father after he has destroyed all dominion, authority and power. 25For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. 26The last enemy to be destroyed is death. 27For he “has put everything under his feet.”c Now when it says that “everything” has been put under him, it is clear that this does not include God himself, who put everything under Christ. 28When he has done this, then the Son himself will be made subject to him who put everything under him, so that God may be all in all.
Many who believe they do not have to worry will be among those who are destroy. They lack the courage to speak up for what is right. They do not warn others or tell them God’s name or tell them about our king Jesus and the heavenly kingdom. They may fear what others thing, or fear what will happen if they do. God does not except cowardice as an excuse.

Revelation 21:8 ESV

But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”
The reward is worth it and it is eternal. This is all temporary.

Revelation 21:1-27 ESV

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” Also he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” …

Isaiah 2:1-22 ESV

The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem. It shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the house of the Lord shall be established as the highest of the mountains, and shall be lifted up above the hills; and all the nations shall flow to it, and many peoples shall come, and say: “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob, that he may teach us his ways and that we may walk in his paths.” For out of Zion shall go the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. He shall judge between the nations, and shall decide disputes for many peoples; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore. O house of Jacob, come, let us walk in the light of the Lord. …

Others speech reveals a lot about them and whether we should associate or not.

Sorry about the format of this. I put spaces to separate the paragraphs but when I update the post the spaces are removed for some reason.
We should not tolerate those speaking bad of others. It is a sign of arrogance which we know Jehovah does not like.
(Psalm 101:5) Anyone slandering his companion in secrecy, Him I silence. Anyone of haughty eyes and of arrogant heart, Him I cannot endure.
If we jump conclusions based on a rumor it could come back to bite us. We should talk to the person ourselves. If we share that rumor and it proves to be false it will smear our reputation. Keep in mind if the truth does not come out Jehovah knows the truth and if the rumor is a lie you have made yourself a liar in Jehovah’s eyes.
(Proverbs 25:8-10) 8 Do not go forth to conduct a legal case hastily, that it may not be a question of what you will do in the culmination of it when your fellowman now humiliates you. 9 Plead your own cause with your fellowman, and do not reveal the confidential talk of another; 10 that the one listening may not put you to shame and the bad report by you can have no recall.
(Matthew 18:15-17) 15 “Moreover, if your brother commits a sin, go lay bare his fault between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother. 16 But if he does not listen, take along with you one or two more, in order that at the mouth of two or three witnesses every matter may be established. 17 If he does not listen to them, speak to the congregation. If he does not listen even to the congregation, let him be to you just as a man of the nations and as a tax collector.
If someone is going about revealing things that someone who trusted them told them and telling others about what they have said, they cannot be trusted. We have to stop and think, if they have no qualms in revealing confidential talk and gossip why are they doing that. Are they seeking attention? Are they trying to smear the persons reputation. Are they doing the same thing to you and others?
(Proverbs 20:19) He that is going about as a slanderer is uncovering confidential talk; and with one that is enticed with his lips you must have no fellowship
Gossiping and revealing private conversations causes divisions. People doing these things only cause divisions. These people act very kind and try to get on others good sides and even speak of these things as if they are concerned. We need to be very careful of these ones they can easily draw us in.
(Romans 16:17-20) 17 Now I exhort YOU, brothers, to keep your eye on those who cause divisions and occasions for stumbling contrary to the teaching that YOU have learned, and avoid them. 18 For men of that sort are slaves, not of our Lord Christ, but of their own bellies; and by smooth talk and complimentary speech they seduce the hearts of guileless ones. 19 For YOUR obedience has come to the notice of all. I therefore rejoice over YOU. But I want YOU to be wise as to what is good, but innocent as to what is evil. 20 For his part, the God who gives peace will crush Satan under YOUR feet shortly. May the undeserved kindness of our Lord Jesus be with YOU. . .
We need to be cautious of those who are complaining , keeping in mind seeking an ear for comfort is much different then complaining.
(Jude 16) 16 These men are murmurers, complainers about their lot in life, proceeding according to their own desires, and their mouths speak swelling things, while they are admiring personalities for the sake of [their own] benefit.
We need to be careful of those who try to show how wise they are.
(Isaiah 5:21) 21 Woe to those wise in their own eyes and discreet even in front of their own face. . .
(Proverbs 15:2) The tongue of wise ones does good with knowledge, but the mouth of the stupid ones bubbles forth with foolishness.
The things that comes out of a person mouth should be up building and comforting.
(Proverbs 25:11) 11 As apples of gold in silver carvings is a word spoken at the right time for it.
We must be cautious about those who make presumptions. Presumptuouness is to do something unwarranted or without a right to. So if they are seem arrogant or over assertive we may want to be careful.
(Proverbs 11:2) Has presumptuousness come? Then dishonor will come; but wisdom is with the modest ones.
When we listen to others we should not jump to false conclusions or make false assumptions we may say something we regret. Often times it may have been a miss understanding or as in my case I sometimes do not clearly say what I am thinking and it may come out wrong.
(James 1:19) Know this, my beloved brothers. Every man must be swift about hearing, slow about speaking, slow about wrath;
If someone gossips or whispers about others we should avoid them. It causes strife, jealousy, anger and many other bad things. God does not approve of back biters and we risk becoming one if we associate with them.
(2 Corinthians 12:20) For I am afraid that somehow, when I arrive, I may find YOU not as I could wish and I may prove to be to YOU not as YOU could wish, but, instead, there should somehow be strife, jealousy, cases of anger, contentions, backbitings, whisperings, cases of being puffed up, disorders
We ourselves must be careful about talking a lot.
We should choose our words wisely and not get into lengthy discussions on things the more words we use the more chance of us committing error.
(Proverbs 10:19) 19 In the abundance of words there does not fail to be transgression, but the one keeping his lips in check is acting discreetly. . .
Many try to hide God’s name, we are to make it known. We should avoid those who do not acknowledge his name. It is his unique name and the name of the only true God.
(Hebrews 13:15) Through him let us always offer to God a sacrifice of praise, that is, the fruit of lips which make public declaration to his name
(Romans 10:10) For with the heart one exercises faith for righteousness, but with the mouth one makes public declaration for salvation.
Our speech should promote unity not strife and conflict.
(Ephesians 4:1-6) 4 I, therefore, the prisoner in [the] Lord, entreat YOU to walk worthily of the calling with which YOU were called, 2 with complete lowliness of mind and mildness, with long-suffering, putting up with one another in love, 3 earnestly endeavoring to observe the oneness of the spirit in the uniting bond of peace. 4 One body there is, and one spirit, even as YOU were called in the one hope to which YOU were called; 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism; 6 one God and Father of all [persons], who is over all and through all and in all.
(1 Peter 4:15-19) 15 However, let none of YOU suffer as a murderer or a thief or an evildoer or as a busybody in other people’s matters. 16 But if [he suffers] as a Christian, let him not feel shame, but let him keep on glorifying God in this name. 17 For it is the appointed time for the judgment to start with the house of God. Now if it starts first with us, what will the end be of those who are not obedient to the good news of God? 18 “And if the righteous [man] is being saved with difficulty, where will the ungodly [man] and the sinner make a showing?” 19 So, then, also let those who are suffering in harmony with the will of God keep on commending their souls to a faithful Creator while they are doing good.
We should not go on the defense when we are a victim of such things but react appropriately so they may be saved.
We have to be cautious of questions and why they are being ask. Look at what the pharisees did to Jesus. I have had someone ask me the same question in a variety of ways. Our memories are imperfect, if I varied in the slightest bit they would try to make it look like I was lying. Watch those asking leading questions or trying to stumble you with questions.
(2 Timothy 2:23-26) 23 Further, turn down foolish and ignorant questionings, knowing they produce fights. 24 But a slave of the Lord does not need to fight, but needs to be gentle toward all, qualified to teach, keeping himself restrained under evil, 25 instructing with mildness those not favorably disposed; as perhaps God may give them repentance leading to an accurate knowledge of truth, 26 and they may come back to their proper senses out from the snare of the Devil, seeing that they have been caught alive by him for the will of that one.
If you experience this do not respond, our heavenly father knows the truth and will judge us all.
(Luke 23:8-10) . . .. 9 Now he began to question him with a good many words; but he made him no answer. 10 However, the chief priests and the scribes kept standing up and vehemently accusing him
We all need to weigh what we say cautiously.
(James 1:26, 27) 26 If any man seems to himself to be a formal worshiper and yet does not bridle his tongue, but goes on deceiving his own heart, this man’s form of worship is futile. 27 The form of worship that is clean and undefiled from the standpoint of our God and Father is this: to look after orphans and widows in their tribulation, and to keep oneself without spot from the world. . .
If they are speaking things that are not of God it is Satans thoughts they are thinking so we must be careful associating with them.
We all slip up, even Peter had to be corrected by Jesus.
(Matthew 16:22, 23) . . .” 23 But, turning his back, he said to Peter: “Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me, because you think, not God’s thoughts, but those of men. . .
God’s wisdom will beat any humans there is no one wiser. That is why we should not get caught up in human wisdom and could lead us astray.
(Colossians 2:8) 8 Look out: perhaps there may be someone who will carry YOU off as his prey through the philosophy and empty deception according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary things of the world and not according to Christ;
Those who refuse to correct their behavior will be dealt dealt with by Jehovah.
(Proverbs 6:12-15) 12 A good-for-nothing man, a man of hurtfulness, is walking with crookedness of speech, 13 winking with his eye, making signs with his foot, making indications with his fingers. 14 Perverseness is in his heart. He is fabricating something bad all the time. He keeps sending out merely contentions. 15 That is why suddenly there will come his disaster; in an instant he will be broken, and there will be no healing. . .
(Matthew 12:36) I tell YOU that every unprofitable saying that men speak, they will render an account concerning it on Judgment Day;
Leave the vengeance to Jehovah.
When someone insults us we should not return the insult.
(Romans 12:17-21) 17 Return evil for evil to no one. Provide fine things in the sight of all men. 18 If possible, as far as it depends upon YOU, be peaceable with all men. 19 Do not avenge yourselves, beloved, but yield place to the wrath; for it is written: “Vengeance is mine; I will repay, says Jehovah.” 20 But, “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by doing this you will heap fiery coals upon his head.” 21 Do not let yourself be conquered by the evil, but keep conquering the evil with the good.
Watching what we say is very important. It can save or condemn us.
(Luke 6:45) 45 A good man brings forth good out of the good treasure of his heart, but a wicked man brings forth what is wicked out of his wicked [treasure]; for out of the heart’s abundance his mouth speaks. . .
(Mark 7:17-23) . . .. 18 So he said to them: “Are YOU also without perception like them? Are YOU not aware that nothing from outside that passes into a man can defile him, 19 since it passes, not into [his] heart, but into [his] intestines, and it passes out into the sewer?” Thus he declared all foods clean. 20 Further, he said: “That which issues forth out of a man is what defiles a man; 21 for from inside, out of the heart of men, injurious reasonings issue forth: fornications, thieveries, murders, 22 adulteries, covetings, acts of wickedness, deceit, loose conduct, an envious eye, blasphemy, haughtiness, unreasonableness. 23 All these wicked things issue forth from within and defile a man. . .
(James 1:26, 27) 26 If any man seems to himself to be a formal worshiper and yet does not bridle his tongue, but goes on deceiving his own heart, this man’s form of worship is futile. 27 The form of worship that is clean and undefiled from the standpoint of our God and Father is this: to look after orphans and widows in their tribulation, and to keep oneself without spot from the world.
(Matthew 12:36, 37) 36 I tell YOU that every unprofitable saying that men speak, they will render an account concerning it on Judgment Day; 37 for by your words you will be declared righteous, and by your words you will be condemned.”
If we use or tolerate abusive speech or obscene language it is saying something about ourselves. What comes out of our mouths should build others up. We should not be gossiping or murmuring about others.
(Colossians 3:8-11) 8 But now really put them all away from YOU, wrath, anger, badness, abusive speech, and obscene talk out of YOUR mouth. 9 Do not be lying to one another. Strip off the old personality with its practices, 10 and clothe yourselves with the new [personality], which through accurate knowledge is being made new according to the image of the One who created it, 11 where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, foreigner, Scyth′i·an, slave, freeman, but Christ is all things and in all.
(Ephesians 4:28-32) . . .. 29 Let a rotten saying not proceed out of YOUR mouth, but whatever saying is good for building up as the need may be, that it may impart what is favorable to the hearers. 30 Also, do not be grieving God’s holy spirit, with which YOU have been sealed for a day of releasing by ransom. 31 Let all malicious bitterness and anger and wrath and screaming and abusive speech be taken away from YOU along with all badness. 32 But become kind to one another, tenderly compassionate, freely forgiving one another just as God also by Christ freely forgave YOU.
We need to ask ourselves. If we were talking to God would we say it? If not , why not?
(2 Timothy 2:14-17) . . .. 15 Do your utmost to present yourself approved to God, a workman with nothing to be ashamed of, handling the word of the truth aright. 16 But shun empty speeches that violate what is holy; for they will advance to more and more ungodliness, 17 and their word will spread like gangrene. Hy·me·nae′us and Phi·le′tus are of that number.
When someone repented and we have forgiven them we should not be gossiping about their transgression.
(Proverbs 17:9) 9 The one covering over transgression is seeking love, and he that keeps talking about a matter is separating those familiar with one another. . .
I have had even those spiritually related continually ask the same question in different ways and if I was slightly different in my response they would take that as evidence that I was lying.
We need to be careful of those who complain or brag and associating with those who do. It could draw us away we need to stay focused. If they murmur or gossip about others be cautious associating with them. We should keep in mind Korah and how his murmuring cost the lives of many. The things we speak should build unity and peace.
(Jude 16-21) 16 These men are murmurers, complainers about their lot in life, proceeding according to their own desires, and their mouths speak swelling things, while they are admiring personalities for the sake of [their own] benefit. 17 As for YOU, beloved ones, call to mind the sayings that have been previously spoken by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ, 18 how they used to say to YOU: “In the last time there will be ridiculers, proceeding according to their own desires for ungodly things.” 19 These are the ones that make separations, animalistic [men], not having spirituality. 20 But YOU, beloved ones, by building up yourselves on YOUR most holy faith, and praying with holy spirit, 21 keep yourselves in God’s love, while YOU are waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ with everlasting life in view. . .
(1 Corinthians 1:10) 10 Now I exhort YOU, brothers, through the name of our Lord Jesus Christ that YOU should all speak in agreement, and that there should not be divisions among YOU, but that YOU may be fitly united in the same mind and in the same line of thought.
What comes out of our mouths and our friends mouths should be for building peace and unity.
(Ephesians 4:1-6) 4 I, therefore, the prisoner in [the] Lord, entreat YOU to walk worthily of the calling with which YOU were called, 2 with complete lowliness of mind and mildness, with long-suffering, putting up with one another in love, 3 earnestly endeavoring to observe the oneness of the spirit in the uniting bond of peace. 4 One body there is, and one spirit, even as YOU were called in the one hope to which YOU were called; 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism; 6 one God and Father of all [persons], who is over all and through all and in all.
If we have confronted a gossiper or someone who appears to be getting caught up in the world and our spiritual relative seems to be getting worse you may bring it to the attention of an elder so they can deal with it in an appropriate manor. Unfortunately in times past it sometimes took confronting them in front of others to get their attention. Now more then ever we will need to learn to forgive because many are coming into the truth and have much to learn we need to be patient with them and teach them and help them grow.
(Luke 17:3, 4) 3 Pay attention to yourselves. If your brother commits a sin give him a rebuke, and if he repents forgive him. 4 Even if he sins seven times a day against you and he comes back to you seven times, saying, ‘I repent,’ you must forgive him..
(Galatians 2:11-14) 11 However, when Ce′phas came to Antioch, I resisted him face to face, because he stood condemned. 12 For before the arrival of certain men from James, he used to eat with people of the nations; but when they arrived, he went withdrawing and separating himself, in fear of those of the circumcised class. 13 The rest of the Jews also joined him in putting on this pretense, so that even Bar′na·bas was led along with them in their pretense. 14 But when I saw they were not walking straight according to the truth of the good news, I said to Ce′phas before them all: “If you, though you are a Jew, live as the nations do, and not as Jews do, how is it that you are compelling people of the nations to live according to Jewish practice?. . .
If we are disciplined we need to accept it and see it for what it is. A loving parent disciplines a child because they wish them no harm and know their course of action if it continues can bring a lot of misery on themselves and even harm. The discipline is for our own good so we should give respect to the one disciplining us.
(Hebrews 12:9-11) 9 Furthermore, we used to have fathers who were of our flesh to discipline us, and we used to give them respect. Shall we not much more subject ourselves to the Father of our spiritual life and live? 10 For they for a few days used to discipline us according to what seemed good to them, but he does so for our profit that we may partake of his holiness. 11 True, no discipline seems for the present to be joyous, but grievous; yet afterward to those who have been trained by it it yields peaceable fruit, namely, righteousness.
I have seen others murmur about those who were struggling and depressed because of hard times. This is not how it should be. We should be comforting them and be a support for them.
(1 Thessalonians 5:12-15) 12 Now we request YOU, brothers, to have regard for those who are working hard among YOU and presiding over YOU in [the] Lord and admonishing YOU; 13 and to give them more than extraordinary consideration in love because of their work. Be peaceable with one another. 14 On the other hand, we exhort YOU, brothers, admonish the disorderly, speak consolingly to the depressed souls, support the weak, be long-suffering toward all. 15 See that no one renders injury for injury to anyone else, but always pursue what is good toward one another and to all others.
What we say could smear our heavenly fathers good name and even cause his name to be spoken of in a bad way.
(2 Peter 2:2, 3) 2 Furthermore, many will follow their acts of loose conduct, and on account of these the way of the truth will be spoken of abusively. 3 Also, with covetousness they will exploit YOU with counterfeit words. But as for them, the judgment from of old is not moving slowly, and the destruction of them is not slumbering.
Now more then ever we need to stay focused on spiritual things.
(Galatians 5:16-21) 16 But I say, Keep walking by spirit and YOU will carry out no fleshly desire at all. 17 For the flesh is against the spirit in its desire, and the spirit against the flesh; for these are opposed to each other, so that the very things that YOU would like to do YOU do not do. 18 Furthermore, if YOU are being led by spirit, YOU are not under law. 19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, and they are fornication, uncleanness, loose conduct, 20 idolatry, practice of spiritism, enmities, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, contentions, divisions, sects, 21 envies, drunken bouts, revelries, and things like these. As to these things I am forewarning YOU, the same way as I did forewarn YOU, that those who practice such things will not inherit God’s kingdom
We should do to others as we would want them to do to us. If we have a bad day and may lose our temper how good do you feel when you have been forgiven by the person you offended. If someone offends us shouldn’t we also let them know we love them by forgiving them?
(Luke 6:31) 31 “Also, just as YOU want men to do to YOU, do the same way to them.
We need to prepare ourselves mentally and spiritually because it is going to get much worse. We know this system is about to collapse and Satan and those who chose his side are only going to accuse us more.
.(Revelation 12:8-12) . . .. 9 So down the great dragon was hurled, the original serpent, the one called Devil and Satan, who is misleading the entire inhabited earth; he was hurled down to the earth, and his angels were hurled down with him. 10 And I heard a loud voice in heaven say: “Now have come to pass the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ, because the accuser of our brothers has been hurled down, who accuses them day and night before our God! 11 And they conquered him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their witnessing, and they did not love their souls even in the face of death. 12 On this account be glad, YOU heavens and YOU who reside in them! Woe for the earth and for the sea, because the Devil has come down to YOU, having great anger, knowing he has a short period of time.”
If we choose to follow Jesus then we will also be treated as he was. We know we are very near the end of this system and Satan and his people will turn on us just as they did Jesus. Jesus was innocent and look at the things that were said about and to him.
(Acts 24:5-8) 5 For we have found this man a pestilent fellow and stirring up seditions among all the Jews throughout the inhabited earth and a spearhead of the sect of the Naz·a·renes′, 6 one who also tried to profane the temple and whom we seized. 7 —— 8 From him you yourself can by examination find out about all these things of which we are accusing him.”
(John 15:18-21) 18 If the world hates YOU, YOU know that it has hated me before it hated YOU. 19 If YOU were part of the world, the world would be fond of what is its own. Now because YOU are no part of the world, but I have chosen YOU out of the world, on this account the world hates YOU. 20 Bear in mind the word I said to YOU, A slave is not greater than his master. If they have persecuted me, they will persecute YOU also; if they have observed my word, they will observe YOURS also. 21 But they will do all these things against YOU on account of my name, because they do not know him that sent me.
Keep in mind God knows what they are doing is wrong and he will deal with them. He hates lies also and finds it detestable. Keep in mind who is behind the bad speech.
(Proverbs 6:16-19) 16 There are six things that Jehovah does hate; yes, seven are things detestable to his soul: 17 lofty eyes, a false tongue, and hands that are shedding innocent blood, 18 a heart fabricating hurtful schemes, feet that are in a hurry to run to badness, 19 a false witness that launches forth lies, and anyone sending forth contentions among brothers.
Jesus suffered the persecution and left us an example of how we should deal with it.
(1 Peter 2:21-23) 21 In fact, to this [course] YOU were called, because even Christ suffered for YOU, leaving YOU a model for YOU to follow his steps closely. 22 He committed no sin, nor was deception found in his mouth. 23 When he was being reviled, he did not go reviling in return. When he was suffering, he did not go threatening, but kept on committing himself to the one who judges righteously.
We need to be very careful associating with those who do not produce the fruits of the spirit but are displaying the fruits of Satan and those who reject our heavenly father. Many of us will be isolated and will have to depend mainly on Jehovah for our support so we need to draw as close as we can to him now. The things occurring can rob us of our happiness and health. If they seem to have a form of godly devotion but are not producing God fruit we should be cautious.
(2 Timothy 3:1-5) 3 But know this, that in the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here. 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, self-assuming, haughty, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, disloyal, 3 having no natural affection, not open to any agreement, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, without love of goodness, 4 betrayers, headstrong, puffed up [with pride], lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godly devotion but proving false to its power; and from these turn away.
Those producing good fruits will strengthen and build us up not tear us down.
(James 3:17, 18) 17 But the wisdom from above is first of all chaste, then peaceable, reasonable, ready to obey, full of mercy and good fruits, not making partial distinctions, not hypocritical. 18 Moreover, the fruit of righteousness has its seed sown under peaceful conditions for those who are making peace. . .
(Galatians 5:22-24) 22 On the other hand, the fruitage of the spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faith, 23 mildness, self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24 Moreover, those who belong to Christ Jesus impaled the flesh together with its passions and desire.
It is more important then ever to take God’s word in now we are at a turning point and things are going to change very soon. We will need Jehovah more then we ever have before. So we need to put on the complete armor of God. This involves having an accurate knowledge of the truth, trying our best to have a good standing with our heavenly father, sharing the good news, we need to have faith in the future promises and God’s ability to fulfill what he has promised. We have to have an accurate knowledge of how salvation has and will occur by putting God’s words in our hearts. We must pray continually, especially now in these times even little decisions can go bad with all the corruption and Satans attacks. We must keep awake especially now.
(Ephesians 6:10-13) 10 Finally, go on acquiring power in [the] Lord and in the mightiness of his strength. 11 Put on the complete suit of armor from God that YOU may be able to stand firm against the machinations of the Devil; 12 because we have a wrestling, not against blood and flesh, but against the governments, against the authorities, against the world rulers of this darkness, against the wicked spirit forces in the heavenly places. 13 On this account take up the complete suit of armor from God, that YOU may be able to resist in the wicked day and, after YOU have done all things thoroughly, to stand firm.14 Stand firm, therefore, with YOUR loins girded about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and with YOUR feet shod with the equipment of the good news of peace. 16 Above all things, take up the large shield of faith, with which YOU will be able to quench all the wicked one’s burning missiles. 17 Also, accept the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the spirit, that is, God’s word, 18 while with every form of prayer and supplication YOU carry on prayer on every occasion in spirit. And to that end keep awake with all constancy and with supplication in behalf of all the holy ones, 19 also for me, that ability to speak may be given me with the opening of my mouth, with freeness of speech to make known the sacred secret of the good news

Healing Interstitial Cystitis.

Written by Lee Stevenson, sorry I am not a very good editor.

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 done 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.

Excess Oxidative stress leads to chronic illness there is a test to see if you have excess oxidative stress. If you do not get it resolved you cannot heal. You can get a test to check oxidative stress levels.

https://www.ichelp.org/oxidative-damage-may-give-clues-to-icbps-diagnosis/

There are other test that can help identify which areas of the anti-oxidant system are working and which may not be working. This can help identify the sources of high ROS levels or other toxins produced in the body from oxidative stress.

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.

https://www.mdedge.com/jfponline/article/64347/womens-health/when-suspect-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 sources 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 no a one size fits all protocol.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5798639/

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 content. 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.

Those who have IC usually also have fibromyalgia, the mechanisms that trigger it are the same.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9201654

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17462477

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.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11061939

Studies have found that those with interstitial cystitis have an imbalance in their gut bacteria.

https://www.nature.com/articles/srep26083

Hydrangea root helps with TH17 imbalance which is common in those with interstitial cystitis and psoriasis.

https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/152822.php

Bradykinins contribute to IC, grape seed extract reduces bradykinins.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10379755

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.

http://www.sciencedomain.org/abstract/687

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 lose 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.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19046494

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.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23260235

Sources of EPCG, I got mine from nuts like walnuts and hickory nuts and beans especially legumes like peas.

Leaky gut, toxins especially aluminum in vaccines, fluoroquinolones, glyphosate and glufosinsate can cause glycosylation issues. This has been found to be a problem in IC.

https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1111/j.1464-410X.2008.08163.x

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.

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 vulvadynia. Oxalates also will cause vulvadynia.

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.

GMOs, fluoride,fluoroquinolones,mercury, lead, aluminum,glyphosate and glufosinsate 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.

http://iai.asm.org/content/85/3/e00905-16.full

If you do not get inflammation addressed then your ability to make Cathelicidin will be inhibited no matter what your vitamin D status is.

https://www.karger.com/Article/FullText/339149

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.

https://www.nature.com/articles/s41467-018-03925-2

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.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24662556

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.

Glyphosate, glufosinate, 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.

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.

https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.3109/15563650.2010.539184

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.

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. Magnesium citrate should not use often. Our bodies recycle citrate so it can build up in the body. If levels get to high then it can damage the liver , kidneys and red blood cells. Use it in moderation.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Antibiotics and farm chemicals kill our good gut bacteria that protects us from infection.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5911494/

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.

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.

https://www.nature.com/articles/ismej201464

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3516493/

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.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3840232/

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.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5873327/

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.

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.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5565189/

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.

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.

Vaccinations spread and cause disease.

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.

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.

Vaccine myths debunked

https://www.sott.net/article/354522-Historical-evidence-debunks-myth-that-vaccines-eradicated-childhood-infectious-diseases

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.

Not only that but some vaccines are grown on aborted fetal tissue so by getting vaccinations we are condoning in such behavior.

http://www.lifenews.com/2017/12/09/two-companies-that-sold-aborted-baby-parts-for-planned-parenthood-forced-to-close-down/

https://www.livingwhole.org/what-you-didnt-know-about-the-aborted-baby-parts-in-your-vaccines/

Here is a list of animal and human cells found in vaccines.

https://vaxcalc.org/human

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.

NASB

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?”

 

Reducing Cholesterol, LDL is a symptom not a cause.

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.

Angelica

 

Angelica Archangelica

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.

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.

Curly Dock and Yellow Dock

 

Yellow dockRumex Crispus

This is not medical advice and should not be taken as such. I have posted this for informational and educational purposes. Know your plants if in doubt don’t . Some parts of plants are edible while other parts can be lethal.

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.

This is for educational and informational purposes and should not be taken as medical advice. If in doubt don’t. If you do not know a plant well do not use it.

I do not like the taste of Yarrow but I do know eating it has had noticeable effects. I noticed I had increased energy levels. There are sites that claim it lowers blood pressure but my friends who had hypertension experienced a rise in their blood pressure when they used Yarrow. Has has been used for many illnesses even hemorrhoids. There are claims that when applied to wounds it stops bleeding. There are many species of Achillea but I am fimiliar with A. Millefolium.

Velvet Leaf Plant

Abutilon Theophrasti

This is not medical advice I am posting this for information and educational purposes and should not be taken as medical advice. If in doubt don’t make certain of a plant before you use it.

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.

http://www.eattheweeds.com/velvet-leaf-fiber-and-food/

Sumac, no it is not poisonous.

Rhus Typhina

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.

http://www.valuefood.info/61/health-benefits-of-sumac/

Many cultures have used Sumac berries in their cooking and there are many recipes on the internet on using them in your cooking.

Skullcap

Scutellaria

This is not medical advice and should not be taken as such , I am posting this for information and educational purposes only. If in doubt don’t please know your plants before using them.

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.

Purslane a super food.

 

 

Portulaca Oleracea

Purslane is a super food it has almost all the nutrients the body needs including fats needed by the body. It is slightly tangy in the morning but after the sun has hit it the tangyness goes away and it has a nutty flavor when cooked. I love it raw in salads and it is great in stir fries. It is very high in mucilage so can be used to thicken soups. It is an unusual plant because when broken off the detach branch can form seeds. It is one of my favorites and I grow it in big quantities because of the many uses it has.

Wild Violet

Viola

This is not medical advice and should not be taken as such. It is for information and educational purposes. If in doubt don’t make sure you know your plant before you use them.

Their are many species of wild violet but their nutrients and phytochemistry is pretty much the same.

Viola Biflora, Viola Canina, Viola, V. Labradorica, V. Odorata, V. Rostrata, and V. Sororia are the ones I am familiar with. They all taste the same to me. I love them it is one of my favorite wild edibles. I could eat wild violets daily. They have similar nutrients as dandelion only higher levels of them.

Lady’s Thumb

 

Persicaria Maculosa it is also referred to as Polygonum Persicaria.

This is not medical advice and should not be taken as such. If in doubt don’t. Make sure you know a plant before you use it. 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.

Joe Pye

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. It reduces inflammation and fights cancer. Some species of gravel root contain alkaloids that can damage the liver if taken for too long or in to high amounts.

Oxeye Daisy has many benefits. It reduces inflammation, histamines, pain and is a relaxant. It helped me with nausea and muscle spasms. It contains pyrethrin so should be used in moderation. Pyrethrin is good at killing lice and for insect control. It can be confused with Leucanthemum Superbum which has more petals that overlap. It is known as the Shasta Daisy. I do not know much about it’s usage. I have never used it. I do know the Oxeye Daisy has relaxed me when I could not sleep. I enjoy the taste of the leaves and only use the flowers when I make tea.

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. Many claim you should not eat the roots.

Trumpet Honeysuckle

Loniceral Sempervirens

Known as Trumpet Honeysuckle or Coral Honeysuckle. Native Americans used it for asthma, sore throats, coughs and chewed leaves were used on bee stings. The berries will induce vomiting if eaten. For me I would not use it because there are other alternatives that have been studied. I have not found studies on the safety or efficacy of this plant. But it does attract humming birds.

Ground Cherries

Physalis heterophyllas

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.
