Burning scalp and skin, brown blotches, possible hair loss. What could be causing it? Substance P.

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

Burning in the scalp that may radiate across your face and down your spine. When it gets more severe you will get restless legs and pain in the feet. Your hair may start falling out. To stop my hair from falling out I put 5 drops of tea tree oil in 8 ounces of Jojoba oil it also stopped the burning in my skin. It may be difficult to wear clothing because the skin may be uncomfortable or even painful to the touch. Women may experience vaginal discomfort. You also will experience pain in the body that moves around, especially in the chest.

This is caused by high Substance P levels and the condition is called Trichodynia. Substance P levels become raised when there is inflammation in the nerves especially in the central nervous system.

I did find it odd that these things also help with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. I will need to see if there is a substance P and PCOS connection.

Most of the medical community has been taught to try and prescribe psych meds for this. That tell me that allopathic medicine does not know how to deal with it. Anytime they prescribe psych meds for a physical illness it means they lack the knowledge to know what to do so they try to offer comfort through pills thinking they can make you forget the pain.

Some things that help lower substance P.

Exercise, I know it may be hard but start out slow so you do not set off muscle spasm.

Repetitive motion like knitting, or doing something with your hands.

Stretching, but go slowly so you do not set off muscle spasms.

Nutmeg reduces substance P but do not use in high doses it can make you hallucinate. It also kills pain but in high doses could cause seizures.

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.

Sulfation and high sulfites.

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

Sulfation is vital for many processes throughout the body. If sulfation is inhibited or faulty we can develop intolerances to high sulfur foods and even meat. It will also affect the bodies ability to heal. It can cause high histamine, ammonia, hydrogen peroxide and sulfite levels which can cause damage throughout the body. The brain cannot function properly without sulfur. Almost every cell in the body relies on sulfation. There are many things that affect sulfation vaccine injury, toxins especially those found in GMOs , and agricultural chemicals used on our foods. Glyphosate is one of the biggest causes of siltation issues. Those with tick born illness often suffer from this.

Molybdenum is a key nutrient if we are deficient our bodies cannot convert sulfites to sulfates. This is a nutrient that you should not take high levels of. Once you reach homeostasis you should back off and pulse taking it to maintain homeostasis. To much can have adverse effects on the body.

Sulfation is involved in the glucuronidation process. If it is inhibited your ability to detox environmental toxins becomes inhibited. You will develop many sensitivities especially to odors and fumes. It also makes you more sensitive to mold and mold illness and fungal infections.

High sulfite sometimes referred to as sulfide levels have been linked to autism. The good sulfur is sulfate. Sulfite has been oxidized and can be a sign of infection, inflammation, high toxin levels or metabolic issues caused by nutrient deficiencies. It could also indicate gut dysbiosis which cause high sulfite and hydroxy radicals.

Those who have high hydroxy radical levels and high sulfite levels have been found to be deficient in Bifidobacterium Infantis.

Glyphosate causes molybdenum cofactor deficiency which inhibits sulfite oxidase, xanthing oxidase, aldehyde oxidase, and Mitochondrial amidoxime-reducing component. Sulfite oxidase catalyzes the oxidation of sulfite to sulfate, xanthing oxidase converts xanthine to uric acid preventing hypoxanthine from forming which would cause deamimation of adenine, mARC is involved in fat metabolism, if inhibited we can develop high triglyceride levels. So you can see how the high sulfites can really effect the body when glyphosate is involved.

Acidosis and the difference between it and Alkalosis.

Acidosis is very serious and results in chronic illness and even death. Symptoms can be difficulty breathing it becomes deeper and more rapid as the body tries to rid itself of CO2 , nausea or vomiting, fatigue, you will be drowsy and sleep a lot, you will become dissociated and get tunnel vision.

https://www.merckmanuals.com/home/hormonal-and-metabolic-disorders/acid-base-balance/acidosis

One of the differences between acidosis and alkalosis is that nerves become hyper sensitive in alkalosis and we become excitable. In acidosis nerves are depressed and we become drowsy.

http://drbenkim.com/ph-body-blood-foods-acid-alkaline.htm

If not addressed it will result in damage to the pancreas.

http://pancreas.imedpub.com/chronic-metabolic-acidosis-destroys-pancreas.php?aid=164

Acidosis causes hypercalciuria which causes osteoporosis, and kidney stones. It also causes increased levels of vitamin D3 which causes sarcoidosis. Sarcoidosis will cause granulomas to form throughout the body. It often gets mistaken for non alcohol fatty liver and COPD. Sarcoidosis is brought on by an infection and T cells that are out of balance from a result of the acidosis. When in more severe stages the granulomas can be seen under the skin especially around the muscles. This also increase adrenaline which can increase us taking risk and we could develop paranoia.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4778713/

https://www.medicinenet.com/sarcoidosis/article.htm

Acidosis can also be induced by our diet. Our body needs nutrients found in certain fruits and vegetables to regulate our bodies PH. If we eat too much meat and carbohydrates and not enough fruit our blood could become acidic. Our blood is supposed to be alkaline about 7.3 or a little above. When it drops below that we become acidic. The digestive system and bladder are acidic and should be kept at an acidic PH.

This is an example of them treating the symptoms but not the cause. Acidosis is a symptoms, but they treat the acidosis instead of figuring out and treating the cause. It is why they did not correct the problem in this experiment. Only 6% of modern medicine is based on science because they are looking at the mind set of thinking the symptoms are the cause. Naturopaths for the most part look for the cause and treat it. That is why they are more successful. Allopathic medicine views successfully treating the symptoms as a success even the the cause is making a person sicker they figure hiding the symptoms is good.

Whether a food is acid or base has nothing to do with what it does inside the body. For example lemons are estremely acidic but it cause the body to become more alkaline. I found this list to be some what accurate but the mention a lot of high sulfur foods which should be avoid if you have BH4, CBS issues or high sulfite levels it will make the acidosis worse. Once you have addressed what is causing the acidosis whether it be and infection, toxin, or nutrient imbalance you will not have to worry whether the food alkalizes or not because you body will be able to regulate it’s own ph again.

http://www.altered-states.net/barry/update178/phfoods.htm

In acidosis a person will have high plasma potassium levels and in alkalosis they will have low potassium levels.

https://acutecaretesting.org/en/journal-scans/on-the-relationship-between-potassium-and-acid-base-balance

If we are deficient in magnesium, calcium or salt our body cannot properly regulate our ph levels. Calcium is usually not a problem but because of the myths about salt many have ended up being deficient and there are many deficiencies in minerals because of over farming and glyphosate chelates minerals from the soil.

I believe fasting would be bad with someone who has acidosis because ketones are acidic though I have not found studies to show they raise acidic levels , it would only stand to reason, especially since our body becomes acidic when glucose levels drop.

Those with SIBO or gut dysbiosis usually have acidosis. Candida causes alkalosis. This is why increasing bile production is important because if the food ferments from inhibited bile it will increase acidosis.

http://www.healthy.net/Health/Article/Intestinal_Dysbiosis_and_the_Causes_of_Disease/423

http://www.ichnfm.org/braininflammation5

It is the reason those with dysbiosis have bad breath often times. It is also why after stimulating bile , using chlorophyll reduces bad breath it balances the gut bacteria out restoring the good and killing the bad.

http://mergemedicalcenter.com/uncategorized/halitosis-lies-beneath/

The optimal ph of the large intestine is 6 , in those with acidosis it is around 4 which reduces the good bacteria. I think that is why sipping on a cup of water with half a tablespoon of baking soda in it helped restore my gut. It probably raised the ph of my bowel by reducing the acidity of my chime. As for the alkalinity of the baking soda making H Pylori go from commensal to pathogenic. That would be addressed by bile if you have done things to improve bile production, bile keeps it commensal.

http://msphere.asm.org/content/msph/2/3/e00047-17.full.pdf

Many toxins especially glyphosate and endotoxins can inhibit BH4 that can lead to acidosis so addressing BH4 issues should help. I addressed that in some of my other post if you do a search for BH4 they should come up.

http://journals.plos.org/plospathogens/article/file?id=10.1371/journal.ppat.1004655&type=printable

In my other post I showed how BH4 becomes uncoupled. This can lead to acidosis , taking the correct nutrient will help correct this problem. If not corrected it can lead to cardiovascular disease.

https://www.researchgate.net/publication/5991066_Myocardial_ischemia_results_in_tetrahydrobiopterin_BH4_oxidation_with_impaired_endothelial_function_ameliorated_by_BHIN4

All the issues caused by toxins and endotoxins lead to acidosis. They inhibit blood flow which farther increases acidosis. That is why I used grape seed extract to thin my blood to improve blood flow. It also reduces inflammation and bradykins.

Detoxing we need it now days.

 

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

There are so many toxins in our environment, our food, even in the our furniture that can cause a variety of health issues from hormone imbalance to autoimmune disorders. Now consider the toxins allopathic medicine is putting in us especially from vaccinations. Many of our bodies have been pushed to the tipping point. This can cause negative epigentic changes that can get passed down to children.

It is very important to make sure phase 2 detox is working first. If you stimulate phase 1 and phase 2 is blocked it is like adding water to a dam that is already filled to capacity. The toxins will divert from the phase 2 detox pathway into the bloodstream. So detox should go Phase 2. Phase 1, then phase three autophagy as the final step.

http://www.generationrescue.org/latest-news/metal-chemical-detoxification/

Endotoxins cause chronic illness. We get infections when something is in the body is out of balance. To fight the infection and to detox the endotoxins we need to work towards getting things back to homeostasis so the body can do it’s job.

https://docs.google.com/document/d/19UH1Jfe0qlPrKunC36yZVXZcuRLx_f8MslQdSXkV8pA/mobilebasic

Why it is difficult to detox endotoxin.

http://biotoxinjourney.com/block-detox/

The good and bad of chelating heavy metals.

https://drknews.com/chelation-autoimmunity/

When under a heavy toxin load even from endotoxins Fe3 is produced. The body cannot use this type of iron and it reduces our bloods ability to transport oxygen and causes many health problems. Lactoferrin, curcumin and lipocalin 2 will reduce Fe3 levels. Taking curcumin for too long can make a person anemic because it also chelates good iron. Lipocalin also reduces oxidative stress and helps clear pathogens from the body. Lipocalin also helps the heart heal. But high lipocalin levels can cause insulin resistance so we do not want to increase it but support it’s function with proper nutrients.

Lipcalin

https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs10534-016-9925-5

https://www.nature.com/articles/srep35014

http://www.jbc.org/content/287/7/4808.full.html

http://diabetes.diabetesjournals.org/content/59/4/872

If we are insulin resistant it indicate high lipocalin levels. Cold and fasting stimulate lipocalin and phytic acid reduces lipocalin. So if we are insulin resistant we would not want to fast or expose ourselves to cold until we have gotten things back to homeostasis. We would also need to increase our phytic acid intake temporarily until we achieve homeostasis. Pushing things beyond homeostasis cause other health issues. We should always work towards homeostasis. Too much lipocalin promotes obesity, I need more lipcalin because I struggle to keep my bodies fat levels at a healthy level. Mine are way below what is considered healthy.

Lactoferrin

Lactoferrin protects us from infection and prevents pathogens from adhering to the gut. It also inhibits parasite infection in the vagina.

Lactoferrins ability to chelate iron is the reason it reduces inflammation and helps prevent septic shock.

https://publications.edpsciences.org/10.1051/medsci/2009254361

Because lactoferrin chelates Fe3 it reduces iron overload and restores iron homeostasis.

https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs10534-014-9798-4

Curcumin chelates iron so can make anemia worse but will reduce symptoms of hypoferremia. If you have iron overload from oxidative stress, toxins or eating foods that have been fortified with Fe3 which is usually what they use then curcumin may help.

Acetaldehydes are produce from mold and fungal infections, molybdenum is needed to detox it. Once you reach homeostasis reduce intake and take maintenance doses too much manganese can have negative health effects. You may feel ill at first because as you detox the metabolic pathways for a short time the toxin levels will increase in our blood because it is cleaning out the detox pathways. We need to make sure we stay hydrated while detoxing so the liver and kidneys can better detox our bodies. Once the toxin levels come down in our metabolic pathways we will not get as sick. The body needs to transport the toxins out of our pathways somehow and the blood is how it does it.

Proton pumps are bad for the body. The ironic thing is most indigestion is not caused by excess acid. It can be caused by high histamines, inhibited bile production, pyrrole issues which cause indigestion when someone consumes fats. Most things that cause indigestion cannot be addressed by proton pump inhibitors it only mask the symptoms while the body continues to decline.

High oxalates also known as oxalosis, or hyperoxaluria.

Symptoms of high oxalates are gout, arthritis, kidney stones which causes back pain, gut issues, brain fog, vulvadynia, painful urination, cloudy urine, depression, bladder pain, muscle weakness . Most issues with oxalates are not from the oxalates we consume but health issues that need addressed. I often time get upset when people ask how they can reduce oxalates. It is not a simple question, there are many causes of high oxalates and consumption of foods that contain them are not the main reason because almost all foods have oxalates. Make sure you avoid processed sugar and artificial sweeteners they cause oxalates.

Most oxalates that people have to worry about are endogenous. As for eating oxalates the only time they are a real issues is when we have gut issues. Either we have leaky gut or we are lacking the bacteria that break down oxalates. Cooking destroys oxalates and many of the high oxalate foods like kale and spinach are usually cooked. Most foods contain oxalates and often times the oxalate or being produced endogenously (produced internally) the exogenous oxalates are usually not the problem.

We don’t only need oxalate digesting bacteria but we need a diversity of bacteria. That is because some bacteria feed the others and without them they would not get established in the gut and would die off. Consuming oxalates actually promotes gut diversity showing once we address the problem causing the high oxalates we actually need them to improve our microbiomes diversity.

High Ammonia/Alkalosis Levels in chronic illness.

Ammonia is very toxic to the body and can be formed when there are too many toxins, endotoxins can cause it, vitamin deficiencies, infections, farm chemicals in our food, vitamin deficiencies can cause it and oxidative stress can cause high ammonia levels. When we have high ammonia levels it alkalize our digestive system and our bladder. They are normally acidic. Most pathogens thrive in an alkaline environment. Candida goes from commensal to pathogenic in an alkaline environment and then it will start to alkalize even more. This kills our good bacteria that regulates our gut and bladder PH. I rarely ever fart now I have reach gut homeostasis.

One of the differences between acidosis and alkalosis is that nerves become hyper sensitive in alkalosis and we become excitable. In acidosis nerves are depressed and we become drowsy. Alkalosis is usually caused by fungal infections acidosis by infections that produce endotoxins like Lyme or a viral infection.

http://drbenkim.com/ph-body-blood-foods-acid-alkaline.htm

Symptoms include brain fog, depression, delusions, neurological problems, swelling in the throat, gut dysbiosis, interstitial cystitis or frequent bladder infections, gall stones the list goes on and on.

Issues with our CBS pathway could also cause high ammonia levels. Anything that causes high sulfite levels can cause high ammonia levels. Gene mutations only present when there are many things wrong, once I got my ammonia levels and sulfite levels down I could start consuming high sulfur foods again. I still take the nutrients once in a while to support those pathways so it does not become a problem again. Glyphosate also effects the pathways negatively so we should try our best to eat organic. Also if we have gut dysbiosis then we need to address that because that raises our sulfite and hydroxy radical levels which also causes high ammonia levels.

Not getting enough cholesterol, high sulfite level, and oxidative stress can inhibit bile production. This make H Pylori go from commensal to a pathogenic form. Bile helps detox ammonia from the body. If it feels like a brick is in your stomach after you eat and you get gassy then you have low bile production which will lead to low stomach acid production. Your food is fermenting instead of being digested which will also cause high sulfite levels and high ammonia levels.

Identifying vaccine injury and it’s cost to society.

 

This is not medical advice I am posting this for information and educational puposes.

 

Our tax dollars support those disabled by vaccine injury and the numbers are in the thousands. With many state mandating vaccinations the numbers are going to increase. Medical professionals or not trained to identify or report vaccine injury. Most will try and sweep it under the carpet. When someone make a trip to the doctors for sudden unexplained illness they rarely look at their vaccine injury so most of the time it goes unreported. They do not look at vaccine history in the emergency room either. As the number of people injured goes up they will have to raise taxes to pay the disability for those permanently maimed by vaccinations.

Do not sign vaccine refusal forms. They can be used against you as proof of child neglect.

Vaccine injury does not only take a financial toll it take an emotional toll on the families effected , especially when a child dies from vaccine injury. Some become so disabled they become a special needs child and it takes a lot of work to take care of them. That can take a toll on families.

Some symptoms of vaccine injury are obvious. Others are not like. Sudden behavior changes , no longer makes eye contact, severe screaming, rash over whole body or the development of allergies. Most vaccine injury can take months to become apparent. It is very important to keep health journals before and after vaccinations . List allergies food intolerances, behavior, sleep patterns, skin complexion, gut status. Small things mean a lot. Keep copies of medical records. Adults can sue vaccine producers for vaccine injury. I wouldn’t doubt if people could sue for injury for pets. You cannot sue the vaccine manufacturers or those giving the vaccinations when a child is killed or injured by vaccinations. More are learning to identify vaccine injury so now they want to vaccinate the baby in the womb so the parents cannot see the vaccine injury. https://healthimpactnews.com/2015/dr-andrew-moulden-learning-to-identify-vaccine-damage/ http://immunizationalternatives.com/vaccine-injury-identify/

The effect of high or low histamines.

 

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

There are two sources of histamines endogenous and exogenous. Endogenous means from within or internally so is produced inside the body. Exogenous is introduced to or produced from outside the body. There are health issues with high or low histamines. Narcolepsy is in it’s own class it alternates between high and low histamine.

Histamine has many functions in the body , it is involved in the immune response, regulating physiological function in the gut. It acts as a neurotransmitter in the brain , spinal cord and uterus. It is involved in inflammation and the itching we feel. Histamine is produced by basophils and mast cells types of white blood cells. Histamines increases the permeability of blood vessels to allow white blood cells and some proteins to pass through so they can to engage pathogens in infected tissues.

Histamines generated in granules in mast cells and basophils. Most cells are more numerous in sites of the body that is more prone to injury like the mouth , nose, internal body surfaces and blood vessels. Non mast cell histamine in found in areas such as the brain. Another site of histamine storage and release is in enterochomaffin-like cell (ecl). This is an area in the gastric mucosa. Because of histamines properties it is versatile and able to interact and bind more easily.

The most important role of histamine is immunologic. When the mast cells or basophils have been sensitized to a pathogen by IgE antibodies that attach to their membranes will degranulate when exposed to the appropriate antigen. Certain amines, alkaloids found in plants can displace histamine in granules and cause their release. The break down of amino acids releases amines which are higher in aged meats. Lowering IgE can reduce histamine release.

Histamine is involved in anaphylaxis. Anaphylas is a rapid onset allergic reaction. It can involve itchy rashes, throat and tongue swelling, shortness of breath, lightheadedness, vomiting and low blood pressure. Sometimes they develop over hours. Vaccinations and toxins in our environment and food are known causes of a person developing allergies.

Histamine gated chloride channel is said to be expressed in the hypothalamus, thalamus, and intestines. It has synaptic inhibitory effects. It inhibits the GABA receptors making us more awake. It is also involved in diarrhea.

Histamines are the cause of runny noses. Increased vascular permeability caused by histamines causes fluid to leak from the capillaries into the tissue which leads to runny nose and watery eyes. Allergens can bind to IgE-loaded mast cells in the mucous membrane. This is what causes the sneezing, hyper secretion from glandular tissue, and congested nose from the vasodilation increasing the size of the blood vessels.

Histamine is a neural transmitter that is released from histamine neurons in the hypothalamus (hypothalamus links the nervous system to the endocrine system via the pituitary gland.) . These cells are located in a part of the hypothalamus known as tuberomammilian nucleus. The tuberomammilian nucleus consist largely of histamine neurons and is involved in sexual arousal, learning, memory, sleep and energy balance. The nuerons in this area comprise the brain’s histamine system. It contains nerve fibers that connect it to other areas of the brain.

Enterochromaffin-like cells located within the gastic glands of the stomach that stimulates a certain type of epithelials cell by binding to the end of the H2 receptor. Stimulation of the pariental cells (stomach epithelial cells that secret hydrochloric acid) induces the uptake of carbon dioxide and water from the blood, which is then converted to carbonic acid by the enzyme carbonic anhydrase. Inside the cytoplasm of the pariental cell the carbonic acid readily disassociates into hydrogen and bicarbonate ions. The bicarbonate ions diffuse back through the basilar membrane and into the blood stream while the hydrogen ions are pumped into the lumen of the stomach via specialized pumps. Histamine release is halted when the ph of the stomach starts to decrease. Certain drugs contain antagonist molecules that block the H2 receptor and prevent histamine from binding causing decreased hydrogen ion secretion. Antagonist is a type of receptor ligand that blocks or dampens biological response by binding to and blocking a receptor.

Though histamines have stimulatory effects on neurons it also has suppressive effects against the susceptibility to convulsions, and lesions in the brain.

Those with schizophrenia have increased histamine metabolites in their cerebrospinal fluid and the efficiency of the H1 receptor binding sites is decreased. This can be caused by the toxins in vaccinations, farm chemicals found in our food, heavy metals or inflammation.

Seeing all that histamines do demonstrates the importance of histamine homeostasis. To much can cause many health problems and if inhibited it can cause many health problems. Now knowing the types of histamine receptors will help identify where a specific problem may be. This helps identify the most probably cause of the health problems. For example vaccinations damage certain areas in the brain that that could effect the histamine receptors in our brain that effect our sleep and wake cycle. BT Toxins and the farm chemicals used on them cause leaky gut which can effect histamines throughout the body. Identifying the areas effected by histamines helps narrow the cause down. If you read studies on those who take frequent antihistamines they eventually develop autoimmune disorders which shows the importance of achieving homeostasis so once you have reach homeostasis you should work on maintaining it. Many over do things by continuing the same protocols even those the problem has been corrected which ends up creating other problems.

There are four types of histamine receptors H1-H4.

H1 is expressed in the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord). It is involved in the sleep wake cycle. It promotes wakefulness. It is involved in body temperature regulation, hormone regulation, it can simulate appetite, it constricts the airways, it can increase the sensation of pain, especially in the pelvis and stomach. It can also cause uticaria and itch perception.

H2 is expressed in the central nervous system, stomach, mast cells, vascular smooth muscle cells, cells in the heart and uterus. It has very few effects on the brain, most H2 receptor ligands cannot cross the blood brain barrier. Primarily involved in vasodilation and stimulation of gastric acid and appetite.

H3 Located primarily on basophils in the bone marrow, thymus, spleen and intestines. Plays a role in mast cell chemotaxis (movement cells in response to a chemical stimulant), sensation of itching, cytokine production and secretion, heightened pain in inner organs, involved in inflammation and allergies.

Some H1 agonist can cause drowsiness while H3 agonist can cause wakefulness.

In some illnesses T Cells attack the bodies own cells. H1 and H4 make the symptoms worse will H2 and H3 decrease the symptoms. They believe it is because H2 and H3 help with T Cell differentiation in the immune system. So this would help differentiate between our own cells and a pathogens, preventing the immune system from attacking it’s own cells.

Since histamine are an important part of the immunes system disorders involving histamines can have effects on our immune system. Things like mastocytosis and mast cell activation syndrome. They have some differences but the remedies for them are pretty much the same so I will probably just say mast cell disorders. They are caused by excess mast cell degranulation. Many of these illnesses they claim are genetic but they are finding it is the gut bacteria that modulate those genes that are inherited or that a person may be lacking. Also gene mutations usually do not present themselves unless many other things have went wrong. To reach homeostasis you have to address any other health issues especially leaky gut. When you have high histamines and your nose runs it will be clear or white colored. When it is from and infection it will be different it will be darker colored, I have seen green, brown when the infection is in the tissues, I have even seen yellow.

Anaphylaxis is caused by mast cell degranulating.

Histaminosis is a disorder that is caused by a shortage of the enzymes that break down histamine. Diamine Oxidase and Histamine N-methyltransferase.

Diamine Oxidase (DAO) known as histiminase is an enzyme involved in the metabolism, oxidation and inactivation of histamine and other polyamines. Poly amines are found in aged meats and fermented foods. The highest levels of DAO are found in the digestive tract and placenta.

Histamine N-methyltransferase also reduces histamines. The Cytochrome P450 enzymes are involved. Glyphosate inhibits CytP450 Ezymes which raises histamine levels. This is also why it is very important to address inflammation because that can inhibit detoxing.

When you have problems with histamines it is very important to adjust your diet to reduce histamines and amines. Once you reach homeostasis you can slowly reintroduce them back into your diet. Because most of the solutions for addressing the various disorders overlap I won’t mention which disorder it helps because for the most part all will be helped by the things mentioned. Do your research to be better able to develop a protocol unique for you. We are all different and can not do a one size fits all protocol. Most of these symptoms can be caused by gut bacteria imbalance or leaky gut.

Histamine Deficiency

We have to cover both side of the coin. Histamine deficiency can also cause health problems. It is why once we achieve homeostasis we should work towards maintaining it and not continue with the protocols that may inhibit it. We could cause other health problems by pushing things in the opposite direction.

This site give the symptoms of histapenia, it mentions to take folic acid. Do not take it, it is man made and damages the body. Folate is natural and does not harm the body, I do not know why but many medical professionals do not know the difference between folate and folic acid.

Any ways the symptoms of low histamine levels are inhibited immune system, elevated serotonin, elevated dopamine, elevated norepinehrine, and low histamine. Low basophil levels, food senstivities which is not the same as food allergies, difficulty digesting food, anxiety, low libido, becoming obssesed with things, paranoia, auditory hallucination, hyperactivity, delusions of grandeur, excessive sleepiness. It can be caused by overmethylation. With low histamines the nose can be dry and you may get nose bleeds.

Hyper Excitement of NMDA (autism also known as encephalitis)

This is not medical advice I am posting this for informational and educational purposes. The NMDA receptors in the brain is on of the most effected when we are ill. It can caused blurred vision, trouble with light it will glare to those effected. You may get buzzing in the ears. It can cause bipolarism, autism , schizophrenia, dissociative behavior and tunnel vision among many other issues.

NMDA Receptors

Information on how the NMDA receptor functions.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1760733/

L-glutamate or glutamic acid is one of the most important of the excitatory neurotransmitters. It is released by many different types of neurons and stimulates other neurons at the synapses. The excitatory neurotransmitters act to stimulate the next neuron to fire.

Excitotoxicity is when levels of excitatory neurotransmitters are to high, at which point the level of neuronal activation or induced firing of neurons becomes damaging.

GABA inhibits firing of neurons. GABA is synthesized from glutamine. It needs the active form of B6, pyridoxal phophate. When there have been inhibitions in metabolic pathways the body may not be able to convert the B6 to the active form causing a build up of glutamine or glutamate. This can lead to dysfunction in the brain. It can also lead to high ammonia levels. Raised ammonia levels can kill our good gut bacteria and let the sulfur digesting and methane producing bacteria increase in numbers. This will also happen in the bladder. Also high ammonia levels will make candida go from commensal to pathogenic form. This will cause high sulfite levels which will interfere with BH4, I discussed earlier the problems that creates. The high sulfite levels can also cause problems with the CBS pathway which can eventually effect the Krebs Cycle.

GABA and glutamate are balanced in the brain . P5P deficiency can result in elevated glutamate to GABA ratio in the brain which results in elevated levels of exitotoxicity.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17127302

Taurine performs manby vital functions in the body including nutritional metal transport into the cells.

L-glycine is an inhibitor of neurotransmitter.

N-Methyl-D-Aspartate (NMDA) receptors found in various nerve cells or neurons in the brain. They are stimulated by glutamate and aspartate (aspartic acid). There are 4 main types of of neurotransmitters. NMDA, AMPA, Kainate and Metabotropic receptors.

NMDA primary role is to respond to glutamate or aspartate. NMDA is also stimulated by glycine and polyamines. Aspartate is also involved in the Krebs cycle. Polyamines are interesting, they do not know a lot about them but from what I have read they are almost like software that will zip or compress files then decompress them. They also have a lot of other functions.

Post synaptic NMDA receptor hyper excitement by the presence of elevated glutamate and aspartate levels and/or insufficient GABA, Taurene or Glycine levels results in the receptor opening a channel in the cell membrane allowing the influx of calcium (Ca2+) ions and a reduction of potassium (k+) ions. This has been linked to many brain disorders and it is a common theme in a variety of disorders effecting the brain. The influx of calcium into the cells stimulates NOS leading to NO production in post synaptic cells. I discussed eNOS and iNOS in my post on Nitrosative Stress. Most of the NO production in the NMDA receptor is from nNOS. This can increase peroxynitrite levels because of elevated superoxide levels from oxidative stress. This can damage the brain and blood brain barrier. This can also deplete ATP , when ATP levels are low the NMDA receptors become hyper sensitive.

When the NMDA receptor is hyper sensitive a person will become sensitive to many thing, sound, light, certain odors especially toxic ones. It can make a person sensitive to chemicals because of the over stimulation.

Copper moduclates the NMDA receptor. When we have an infection our bodies will hide copper in our soft tissue. This can make us appear to be deficient in copper. Vitamin C frees the copper from our soft tissue. Do not take too much, in high doses vitamin C destroys red blood cells. If you are deficient in copper liquid chlorophyll is a good source of copper.

Muscarinic

Muscarinic receptors are G-protein (molecular switches) coupled acetycholine receptors. They are found on the outer membrane of certain neurons and cells. There are five types of Muscarinic Acetylcholine receptors (mACHRs). M1-M5 , when the odd numbered receptors are stimulated they produce increased levels of cytoplasmic (material within a cell) calcium ions in the cell. The odd number receptors trigger synthesis of a chemical messenger IP3 (inositol triphosphate-a phytate) which releases intercellular calcium stores from certain calcium stores that have been sequestered away in the cell. The increased cellular calcium concentration will lead to increased NO production by nNOS and eNOS this can lead to high peroxynitrite levels.

Over stimulation of mACHRs from farm chemicals and many other toxins like heavy metals cause high acetycholine levels by inhibiting acetylcholesterase enzyme which breaks down acetylcholine. This causes high levels of acetycholine which causes the release of NO leading to the production of peroxynitrite. Excessive supplementation of DMAE or Centrophenoxine which has a DMAE component can result in elevated acetylcholine. This can also lead to excess inflammation throughout the body because it is involved in reducing inflammation.

High acetylcholine levels can cause anxiety and high risk taking behavior and mood swings.

Psychological Stress or Trauma

Psychological stress or trauma causes high NO levels which can lead to high peroxynitrite levels which is very damaging to the brain and body. iNOS is upregulated in the lungs and liver during stress. High iNOS levels have been found to be common in post traumatic stress disorder and many illnesses involving chronic fatigue. iNOS is also unregulated during physical trauma which makes those who have been abused more susceptible to chronic fatigue disorders.

Vaccinations and NMDA

It is stated on many vaccine inserts that brain swelling is a side effect. Vaccinations have a dramatic impact on the NMDA and Muscarinic receptors causing the above mentioned things. If you look up the symptoms of autism you will see that brain swelling is the main symptom. But the pharmaceutical companies play the rename game. When people start figuring things out they will rename an illness. They now call it encephalopathy. They played this very game when people figured out that Gulf War Syndrome was caused by vaccinations. They now call it ASIA syndrome.

Nitrosative Stress

This is not medical advice , I am posting this for educational and informational purposes only. This compliments the other post I did on recovering from endotoxemia.

Nitrosative Stress

Is caused by oxidative stress, inflammaton and infection. Those can also lead to Nitrosative Stress which can cause superoxide, and peroxynitrite which are very damaging to the body especially the brain and nervous system. These are a form of Reactive Nitrogen Species. (RNS) Nitric Oxide dependent reactions lead to formation of RNS through the reaction of Nitric Oxide and O2-, peroxynitrite (ONOOH) is formed and leads to oxidation, nitrosation (addition of NO), or nitration (addition of NO2) .

Nitric Oxide is formed from Nitric Oxide Synthase (NOS) which can also produce O2-. Other sources are Xanthine Oxidase, NADPH oxidase, and Myeloperoxidase. There are three types of NOS, inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS, NOS2), endothelium NOS (eNOS, NOS3), neuronal NOS (nNOS, NOS1) They no longer use the numerical references to NOS because it inaccurately described them.

Nitric Oxide is a signaling molecule. When functioning properly it is involved with the homeostasis of our blood pressure. Nitric Oxide is released by the endothelial of the smooth muscle to promote smooth muscle relaxation. This increases the diameter of blood vessels to prevent high blood pressure. Oxidative stress and nitrosative stress can deplete NO causing high blood pressure.

Nitric Oxide has antithrombic effects. So if NO is depleted or production is inhibited by free radicals then excessive blood clotting can occur. Impaired NO production can lead to hypertension, preclampsia, diabetes, obesity, erectile dysfunction, and migraine headaches.

NO is generated as a normal part of an immune response. White blood cells known as phocytes have both inducible and inhibitory enzymes to control NO. NO secreted as part of the immune response uses NOS free radical properties and it is toxic to bacteria, causing DNA damage and degredation of the iron sulfur center.

NO increases expression of superoxide dismutase which catalyzes superoxide anion to hydrogen peroxide. NO upregulates Heme oxygenase 1 and ferritin expression which reduce anion concentrations in blood vessels. This prevents blood vessels from leaking. Inflammation , endotoxins, farm chemicals and many other things can inhibit this. This leads to hardening of the arteries because the body will use cholesterol and calcium to plug the leaks.

NO helps convert thiol groups including cysteine residues in proteins, to form s-nitrosothiols. Thiols are organo sulfur compounds. Our bodies need sulfur for many things and all cell need it. If sulfite levels get high from BH4 , CBS issues, gut dysbiosis or candida it could interfere with the proper function of the thiol groups. S-nitrosylation is an important mechanism for dynamic, post translational regulation of most all major classes of proteins. Post translational regulation is control of gene expression.

Guanylyl known as the NO receptor. Activate guanylyl cyclase enables the production of the cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) . cGMP activates and regulates the enzyme G-kinase. G-kinase modifies proteins in cell through phosphorylation of the myosin light chain kinase which causes smooth muscle relaxation.

Chronic expression of NO can lead to cancer of the epithelium, juvenile diabetes, multiple sclerosis, arthritis, and ulcerative colitis. NO is an oxidising free radical and does cause some oxidative stress on the bodies membranes and tissues. Sustained No production can result in tissue toxicity but most damage is caused from NO causing peroxynitrite formation.

NO protects organs from ischemia, but can contribute to reperfusion injury by increasing inflammation and oxidative damage.

NO forms complexes with transitional metal ions, including those regularly found in metalloproteins. The main trap for no is oxyhemoglobin (oxygen loaded form of hemoglobin) , which binds to NO faster then oxygen. The reaction produces methaemoglobin other NO sensitive metalloproteins are NOS, Cytochrome P450, Ferritin, Ceruloplasmin, mitochondrial respiratory chain. NOS is discussed later, Cytochrome P450 is a very important for detoxing the body. Ferritin helps regulate iron homeostasis. Ceruloplasmin is a copper-carrying protein that is involved in iron metabolism. Mitochondrial respiratory chain is involved in cellular energy.

As NO rises it oxidizes hemoglobin. In healthy individuals about 1% of total hemoglobin has been oxidized mainly by NO. Excess oxidative stress causes excess NO. which can make methemoglobin higher. Methemoglobin contains Fe3 which cannot bind to oxygen. Curcumine and Lactoferrin reduces Fe3 levels in the body. Curcumin can make you anemic if taken for too long because it can also chelate the good iron from the body. Excess methemoglobin is called acquired methemoglobinemia. This can cause skin discoloration, shortness of breath, lethargy, headache, dizzyness, brain fog. Methylene blue helps with this because it is caused by sepsis but those who are G6PD deficient cannot take methylene blue it could kill them.

Some causes of high NO levels.

Prolonged or frequent immune system activation. Which is common in those with CFS, MS, and Fibromyalgia. The most common cause is viral infection. But any number of infections can cause this especially mycoplasma. So to reduce peroxynitrite levels it is important to reduce the viral load on the body, calm the immune system and reduce inflammation.

Inflammation and pro-inflammatory cytokines.

Effects of low NO levels

Low levels of NO will cause low levels of ATP which means the cells would have less energy. This also disables autophagy preventing recycling of mitochondria.

iNOS

NOS is calcium dependent. iNOS is primarily expressed in macrophages a type of white blood cell of the immune system that engulfs and digest cellular debris, foreign substances, microbes, cancer cells and any other cell that does not the type of proteins specific to healthy cells. They are found in almost all tissues in the body. They are expressed primarily after induction by cytokines(small proteins involved in cell signaling) , especially IFN-Y and lippopolysaccharide (endotoxins) . Lippopolysaccharide is abbreviated LPS. Because iNOS contributes to inflammation and destroys parasites and infections it is a major contributor in septic shock. Excessive iNOS can lead to vascular permeability.

Reactive oxygen species works together with reactive nitrogen species to damage cells. Reactive oxygen species produces hydrogen peroxide which can be very damaging to the body. Reactive nitrogen produces peroxynitrite which is also very damaging to the body. Normally the body can neutralize them but when under excess oxidative stress from emotional stress, physical stress, infection, toxins or from nutritional deficiencies the body cannot neutralize and detox the reactive nitrogen and reactive oxygen species. It is a cycle that can be difficult to break. The inflammation that is caused prevents the body from being able to detox and also the metabolic issues it causes puts an even heavier burden on the body because it produces toxins adding to the burden. This is why it is very important to address the nutrient deficiencies caused by illness or toxins and to reduce inflammation.

eNOS

Endothelial NOS (eNOS) is primarily responsible for the generation of NO in vascular endothelium. Endothelium is a monolayer of cells lining the interior surface of blood vessels. No produced by eNOS in the vascular endothelium plays a crucial role in regulating vascular tone, cellular proliferation (process that results in an increase in the number of cells), leukocyte adhesion (white blood cell), and platelet aggregation. eNOS is dependent on calcium and synthesizes NO from L-arginine and oxygen which binds to the heme group of eNOS. Heme is the part of red blood cells that contain the iron which is needed to transport oxygen. The binding of Tetrohydrobiopteran (BH4) is essential for eNOS to generate NO. In the abscense of BH4 which many toxins like glyphosate, mercury and endotoxins can cause eNOS shifts from a dimeric to a monomeric form, thus becoming uncoupled. This causes a production of superoxide anion by eNOS instead of NO. It is a highly reactive free radical that damages the cardiovascular system. This also causes phenylketonuria, ammonia build up in the body because phenylalanine can no longer be recycled. Eating things high in phenylalanine like meat or potatoes will increase the ammonia levels making a person suffering from this sicker, their urine will get dark and smell and when very bad their body odor will be strong.

eNOS causes a reduction in Cationic Amino Acid Transporter 2 (Cat2) which mediates the L-arginine transport needed for raised NO production.

When functioning properly eNOS prevents hardening of the arteries and damage of the blood vessles. It has anti-artheriosclerotic effects. Oxidative stress can cause it to become uncoupled causing many health problems because this also increase reactive oxygen species. This is the one that will cause issues throughout the body because many metabolic pathways will be effected. There are natural ACE inhibitors that will reduce the damage when this happens. Remember the goal is homeostasis. Once the issues that have caused it’s uncoupling have been addressed focus on healing. To continue to take allopathic or natural things to treat symptoms keeps you on a hamster wheel because you have to address the cause. Treating the symptoms will not resolve the problem it will only reduce the symptoms. Enos is very important to the healing of soft tissue throughout the body so it is very important for all pathways to be functioning. Through indirect processes fluoroquinolones also inhibit BH4 and interfere with eNOs. BH4 is involved in the production of serotonin, and L-Tyrosine so inhibition or uncoupling can have dramatic effects on our brains.

Neuronal NOS

Neuronal NOS which used to be known as NOS1 is constitutively(always active) expressed in the central(brain and spinal cord) and peripheral (nerves throughout the rest of the body) neurons and some other cell types.

nNOS functions include synaptic plasticity in the Central Nervous System, central regulation of blood, and vasodilation via nitrergic nerves.

Peroxynitrite

Peroxynitrite is formed when NO reacts with superoxide (O2-) which it readily combines with. The higher the levels of NO present the great the risk of it reacting with super oxide to form peroxynitrite. Peroxynitrite can cause oxidation to hemoglobin causing anemia.

When peroxynitrite is formed it depletes the bioactivity of NO which effect the bodies ability to regulate blood pressure, platelet activation, and vascular cell signaling. This can result in high blood pressure, and hardening of the arteries. When NOS enzymes have limited L-arganine or BH4 they my produce superoxide instead of NO. The can be transformed to peroxynitrite. BH4 reacts with peroxynitrite and is oxidized to biopterin. BH4 is also oxidized by neopterin which is an indication of an immune response. This causes inflammation which in turn can stimulate more peroxynitrite synthesis.

Peroxynitrite can react with other components of the cell including lipids(fats), thiols(organosulfur compounds) , amino acid residues(an amino acid contained within a peptide or protein) , DNA bases (adenine, cytosine, guanine,thymine) , and antioxidants.

Peroxynitrite can react with other molecules to form additional types of RNS including nitrogen dioxide (N2O2) as will as other chemically reactive free radicals which include peroxynitrous acid, hydroxyl radical, carbon dioxide, carbanate radical and dinitrogentrioxide.

Peroxynitrite can react directly with proteins that contain transition metal centers. Therefore it can modify proteins such as hemoglobin, myoglobin, and cytochrom C by oxidising heme into it’s corresponding ferrous forms. Two of the most common reactions is cystein oxidation and tyrosine nitration. These reactions affect protein structure and function so have the potential to cause changes in the catalytic activity of enzymes, altered skeletal organization and impaired cell signal transduction. So it can hinder the bodies ability to heal and examples of illnesses caused by changes in the catalytic activities of enzymes are illnesses such as porphyria and phenylketonuria. Also with the cells ability to communicate impaired all heck can break loose.

Both NO and peroxynitrite can oxidize the iron-sulfur protein based enzymes in the Krebs cycle (citric acid cycle). The iron-sulfur protein is known as Aconitase. Krebs cycle is involved in producing cellular energy. It is the metabolic pathway that connects carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism. So problems with this pathway would have dramatic effects throughout the body. So we can see the importance of reducing peroxynitrite levels.

No reacts with nitrogen dioxide (NO2) presumably instead of superoxide to form Dinitrogen Trioxide (NO3) , which is a type of reactive nitrogen species. All nitrogen oxides are good oxidizing agents. This cause excess Cyclic GMP, vascular collapse and septic shock, s-nitrothiol formation on proteins (thionitrites).

Now you should be able to see why iNOS has been implicated in inflammatory bowel disorders.

GTP cyclohydrolase increases BH4, folate is needed to produce it. Do not take folic acid it is man made and can build up in the body causing health problems.

Vitamin C the real vitamin C not man made, Vitamin E and Folate not to be mistaken for Folic Acid which is man made and can build up in the body damaging the NMDA receptor and increasing the risk for cancer. These all scavenge peroxynitrite.

Hydroxycolbamin scavenges peroxynitrite

COX2 inhibitors reduce peroxynitrite. In my list of supplements I listed some things that will inhibit COX.

Getting rid of infection and reducing inflammation reduces peroxynitrite.

Reducing toxins in the body especially glyphosate and heavy metals reduces peroxynitrite.

Ellagic Acid reduces peroxynitrite.

Inflammation and infection are known causes of hardening of the arteries. The blood vessels start to leak and the body uses calcium and cholesterol to seal the leaks resulting in hardening of the artieries. INOS causes leakage in blood vessels in response to inflammation and infection. This is why it is very important to address the infection and inflammation.

Dealing With Endotoxemia or Sepsis.

These are my notes of things I researched to recover. I have much more to add to it but figured I would post what I have typed up so far. This is not in order and inflammation is very very important to address in order to be able to detox endotoxins.

This is not medical advice, I am putting this here for informational and educational purposes. My advice on reading this because it is very long is skip over things that do not seem to concern you and the issues you are dealing with. I had many health problems I had to deal with and these are my notes. It seems I had more then usual so my notes are extensive. From what I am learning most do not experience the number of health issues I had. I need to cover oxidative stress first because it is the main cause of the symptoms of sepsis.

Many take CoQ10 for their fatigue. I would say it is better to avoid but supporting NADPH might be a better option. I noticed I got worse when I took CoQ10 but Ubiquinol seemed to work fine for me.

Oxidative Stress

Oxidative Stress is caused by and imbalance in our antioxidant system. When there is an imbalance taking antioxidants will increase the damage in the body. We must address what is causing the imbalance before taking antioxidants. Taking antioxidants when there is an imbalance in the antioxidant system also makes us more prone to issues that can cause an imbalance in the antioxidant system are inhibited redox cycling and blocked Nrf2 pathways.

This results in the production of peroxides and free radicals. This damages components of the cells including lipids and DNA , they cause strand breaks in the DNA preventing it from repairing . This is why high LDL levels are a sign of oxidative stress. High cholesterol indicates and imbalance in the antioxidant system. This can be cause by toxins like heavy metals, the many farm chemicals found in our food, toxins in processed food, heavy metals, infections and the endotoxins from dying pathogens, many of the toxins in vaccinations can cause oxidative stress,and stay in the body a very long time, especially the aluminum in vaccinations. To restore balance we need to detox whatever is causing the imbalance, also address any metabolic issues causing the imbalance. The hydrogen peroxide produced from the reactive oxygen species can act as cellular messengers which cause a disruption in normal mechanism in cell signaling. This causes redox cycling to be inhibited and has been linked to many forms of chronic illness. Nrf2 regulates the antioxidant system and toxins, infection and bad diets can inhibit the Nrf2 pathways. Excess oxidative stress causes adenosine triphosphate (ATP) depletion. ATP is important in molecular cellular energy transfer. This causes apoptic cell death to be inhibited so the cell simply falls apart. When the cell is not removed by apoptosis it can cause a build up of cellular debris in the body which has many negative health effects. Inflammation can inhibit the bodies ability to remove toxins and waste which can contribute to oxidative stress. Over production of ROS can lead to stroke, hypertension, hardening of the arteries, heart attacks, and failure of organs. It can result in damage to the brain resulting in impaired thinking and even mental illness.

There are many source of reactive oxygen species in the body. Xanthine Oxidase is an enzyme that generates reactive oxygens species it is found in the blood and lungs. It’s activity is increased during infection. Levels of xanthine oxidase are increased during liver damage. It has been found to be high in gout. Phytic acid inhibits xanthine oxidase. Remember homeostasis is the goal because the antioxidant system protects us we do not want to keep inhibiting it. Once we get inflammation down and the peroxide, and free radical levels down we want to maintain homeostasis.

hich are cofactors involved in electronic transport, DNA repair. Damaged (Fe-S) clusters can cause iron overload. It also causes inhibition of lipoic acid synthase which is involved in amino acid metabolism and glycine degradation. When inhibited it results in encephalitis and lactic acidosis. This also causes a build up of hydroxyl radicals. NADPH oxidase is activated by infections and certain cytokines. Arachidonic acid (omega 6) also stimulates activity of NADPH oxidase Apocynin found in many plants inhibits NADPH oxidase. I do not know which plants but most research papers state apocynin found in many types of plants. Inhibition of NADPH can cause granulomas to form. This is the bodies way of blocking off something it cannot rid from the body. So do not over do it. Nitric Oxide also inhibits NADPH oxidase. Arginine and citrulline can help increase NO.

Superoxide Dismutase

Superoxide Dismutase comes in three forms in the body, SOD1 is located in the cytoplasma inside of cells, SOD2 located in the mitochondria, SOD3 is extracellular. SOD serves as a key antioxidant. Low SOD levels increases the risk of cancer. SOD has anti-inflammatory effects. SOD decreases ROS and oxidative ss, and interstitial cystitis. It also reduces inflammation in the urinary tract. SOD also prevents liver and kidney damage and protects us from radiation damage. The most bioavailable form of of SOD is found in the chaga mushroom but it is also found in phytoplankton, horseradish, and cantaloupe. If you have iron toxicity it will inhibit SOD. Lactoferrin helps restore the bad iron back to good and helps the body get rid of excess iron. Curcumine chelates iron but if taken to often or too much it can cause anemia. Infection can cause the body to store copper in our soft tissue to prevent pathogens from using iron. This also prevents the body from using iron, it kills the pathogen but inhibits SOD production. Natural sources of vitamin C will get the body to release the copper from the soft tissue. High doses of vitamin C can cause red blood cells to break down so don’t get carried away. Also man made vitamin C can cause oxalates. Manganese is needed for SOD production but should not be taken in high doses it can be toxic if we get too much in the body. Zinc is also needed for SOD production , honey is high in zinc.

Low SOD3 can cause acute respiratory distress syndrome which is when fluid leaks into the lungs. It has also been linked to COPD.

Glutathione and SOD are tightly linked so I will cover it next. Resveratrol also activates SOD it is found in grape seed extract.

We need to find balance because high levels of SOD has been show to make us susceptible to certain types of cancer. Homeostasis should be the goal then do things to maintain homeostasis.

Glutathione peroxidase

Glutathione peroxidase is a general name for a group of enzymes with peroxidase activity. Gps main biological role is to protect from damage from oxidative stress. GP reduces lipid hydroperoxides to their corresponding alcohols. Lipid hydroperoxides are caused from the oxidative degredation of fats. It mostly effects polyunsaturated fatty acids. There are several documented cases of anemia from GP deficiency, most likely if they measure the Fe3 iron it would be high. The iron in the plasma was probably in a form the body could not us.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3159114/

http://omim.org/entry/614164

GPx1 increases reactive nitrogen species ability to cause cell death and can cause insulin resistance. So it is important to make sure reactive nitrogen species are not high.

This is a link to a more in depth article I did on Nitrosative Stress.

https://iamajuicer.wordpress.com/2018/07/11/nitrosative-stress/

If you have been reading the links in my post you know by now that lipopolysaccharides a component of endotoxins is responsible for the systematic inflammation that endotoxins cause. It is very important to reduce the level of LPS in the body to reduce chances of sepsis which results in chronic illness. LPS can cause a bunch of issues that prevent us from detoxing which causes many other issues. In order to detox LPS we need to address those issues. I am going to place these links here so when you decide the approach you may want to take you can look at nutritional options that may help after you have read the article and get a better understanding of endotoxemia these can be used for a reference.

It is very important to reduce LPS because it has a dramatic effect on our brain. It can cause anxiety, dissociative behavior, emotional dysfunction. It also impairs memory. It can cause fatigue and even disrupt the reproductive cycle. High LPS levels have been linked to things such as diabetes, heart disease, mental illness, cancer, obesity, metabolic disorders, renal disorders, autism, hearing and eye health can be negative impacted. LPS also cause digestive disorders like SIBO, IBD, IBS and dysbiosis. LPS contributes to arthritis and increased allergies. LPS has even been linked to PCOS in women. LPS causes adrenal fatigue. It can cause many skin disorders like lupus or psoriasis. It can contribute to bone loss. It causes neurological damage throughout the body.

Endotoxins also cause hormone imbalances and thyroid problems.

There are gut bacteria that reduce LPS, Bifidobacterium, Lactobacillus GG, Saccharramyces Boulardii Bacillus Infantis, B Longhum, Clostridium Butyricum, E Coli Nissle 1917, Lactobacillus Brevis, L Casei, and many others.

Fruit pectin reduces LPS. The pectin is the waxy substance found on the skins of many fruits. One of these articles mentions corn flakes. Corn is GMO and causes leaky gut which would make things worse. I do not recommend eating any GMOs they themselves can cause sepsis.

Polyphenols reduce LPS. These are usually highest in darker colored fruits and vegetables.

Resistant starch decreases LPS by increasing the good gut bacteria. This should be introduced slowly because when the good gut bacteria increase the bad die off which will cause bloating and herxing. I got very ill when I tried to eat resistant starch. I had to start with small amounts and slowly increase my intake.

LPS and Fats

Diets high in bad fats, like transfats and saturated fats increase the effects of LPS.

These sites suggest ways to reduce LPS. I do not agree with all their methods so always take things with a grain of salt and do your research. Many have metabolic issues that need addressed before taking some of the suggested things in these articles. For example those with high sulfite levels or CBS or BH4 issues would become ill from some of the things suggested because they are high in sulfur. Those with Pyrrole issues will become ill from any types of fats so Omega 3s will cause problems. So before you can even attempt to detox LPS you need to address any metabolic issues or you will be running on a hamster wheel of ill health getting no where because the things needed to heal will make you ill.

LPS Causes Leaky Gut

LPS causes leaky gut, leaky gut causes our bodies to absorb more LPS. Here is another area where the cycle must be broken. Just as with high oxalate levels it is difficult to heal the gut , high LPS levels make it difficult to heal the gut. I have posted articles that will help with information on healing the gut so I will not cover it in detail but if time permits I will post the links to the articles. Healing the gut is very important in order to break the cycle.

Activated charcoal helps reduce LPS but should not be taken to soon after eating. It will inhibit nutrient absorption.

If the leaky gut is not addressed we develop metabolic endotoxemia.

Polyunsaturated fats should be avoided. The body only needs a small amount of them. When the levels get to high in the body they negatively impact our health. These are found in things such as corn oil, canola oil, cotton seed oil, and soybeen oil. They also contain transfats which really need to be avoided. Fats from things like fresh cod liver oil which should be refrigerated. If it smells fishy then it has oxidized and has lost some of it’s benefits, other sources are coconut oil, beef tallow,lard and butter contain the fats that our bodies need. The tallow, lard and butter should be from grass feed beef. We need PUFAs in our diet but in the form of Omega 3s. We have to do our best to prevent the Omega 3s from oxidizing. The previously mentioned oils are high in Omega 6 , our Omega 3 levels should be higher then Omega 3s but processed food is high in Omega 6 and is why many have inflammatory diseases.

It is very important to protect the liver from while detoxing endotoxins because it is hit pretty hard and can get damaged. Burdock root and sarsparilla root seemed to help me. Rooibos tea was another herb that really helped me, it is great for oxidative stress and inflammation. Sculletaria is another one that seemed to really help me.

Oxidative Stress

Endotoxins cause oxidative stress which results in the oxidation of lipids. The can result in damage throughout the body and is why many have high oxLDL levels. High LDL is a symptom not a cause. It is very important to also address the oxidative stress caused by endotoxins. This includes restoring the balance of our gut bacteria which protects us from oxidative stress. If they are out of balance they can actually contribute to oxidative stress. It is why those who take the same probiotic daily usually end up sicker. They get too much of specific strains of gut bacteria and are preventing their gut bacteria from balancing out. Cholesterol is an antioxidant and an anti-inflammatory. Reducing cholesterol would do the opposite of what we want. It would increase inflammation and prevent the body from healing.

Vitamin E reduces oxidative stress from LPS but the most effective is a-tocopherol. A-tocopherol is found in wheat germ, liver, egg yolk and nuts. Green leafy vegetables are high in it but most are high oxalate especially spinach so must be cooked to break down the oxalates. I have posted on supplements so I will not get into detail but will list the most effective ones here.

Nicotinamide reduces oxidative stress from endotoxins.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29803807

Foods that help increase nicotinamide are milk , yeast , mushrooms,fish, green vegetables and beer. Most beer is GMO it must be organic because the harm GMOs do would defeat the purpose.

Carbon dioxide reduces LPS damage but increasing it has to be done with caution. You can increase carbon dioxide by breathing into a paper bag for a short period of them. I would not do this for long though. It takes a while for oxygen levels to return to normal. I do not recommend trying this I put it here for others to research farther. Those with COPD, asthma, or lung damage would not fair well doing this.

Because LPS increases estrogen because it prevents the body from detoxing it, it is important to decrease estrogen. Some medications increase estrogen, stress increases estrogen, nutrient deficiencies increase estrogen, environmental toxins can increase estrogen, emotional stress can increase estrogen. Many view estrogen as a female hormone, men can have high estrogen levels also. Oxidative stress caused by LPS causes nutrient deficiency which prevents the body from detoxing estrogen. It is very important to get the nutrients we need. Especially minerals and fats. Flouride, fluoroquinolones, farm chemicals especially glyphosate increase estrogen. It is best to eat organic when possible. Sunlight helps detox estrogen when we get it in moderation. Those who avoid getting sun have higher rates of cancer. Those who get too much sun have higher rates of kidney stones. So moderation is the key. There is not much research on reducing estrogen but when the other things are addressed and the detox enzymes are functioning again your body will detox the excess estrogen. Fiber also lowers estrogen. High estrogen levels cause lipid oxidation this can result in high triglyceride levels. High tryglycerides are a symptom and not a cause.

Inflammation

It is important to reduce inflammation. Inflammation can inhibit bile, inhibit the bodies ability to detox, it also can cause autoimmune disease. Bile detoxes many things in the body including LPS and it prevents it from entering the body through the digestive tract. If you get constipated or it feels like you have a brick in your stomach after eating then you may have inhibited bile production. This will cause you food to sit in the upper part of the digestive tract and it will ferment instead of digesting which causes many health problems. Cholesterol is needed to produce bile. If we have excess oxidative stress our cholesterol will get oxidize and it is another reason we must address oxidative stress and reduce it. Fats are also needed to produce bile, this also gets oxidized from oxidative stress. Also the metabolic issues like porphyria can cause problems with fat metabolism and is why it is very important to address metabolic issues. I have posted supplements that help with these issues. If you look through the list COX , inhibitors, anti-inflammatory nutrients will help to reduce inflammation. There are many things involved in the production of bile. Even our gut bacteria modulate bile production. Inhibited bile production can also cause problems with the gall bladder. Sulfation is also important factor in bile production so if you have high sulfite levels from gut dysbiosis, candida, CBS or BH4 issues then you need to address those also. Polyunsaturated fatty acids cause a decrease in the livers ability to detox estrogen.

Things that increase bile are lemon water, artichoke, dandelion root, foods high in sulfur. Taurine deficiency which is common in vegetarians can cause inhibited bile production. Taurine has been shown to increase bile flow.

https://www.belmarrahealth.com/bile-function-liver-foods-help-increase-bile-production/

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/3655556

Our gut bacteria also can cause inflammation if we are deficient in certain strains.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4839080/

Bile

Bile aids in the absorption of healthy fat. If we have poor bile production it can have dramatic effects on the whole body. Every cell in the body needs fat, the brain is mostly fat so fat malabsorption effects the whole body.

https://empoweredsustenance.com/fat-malabsorption/

Many think their indigestion is from acid reflux but often times it is from inhibited bile production. Inhibited bile could cause a deficiency in fat soluble vitamins especially vitamin K. Antibiotics also reduce the gut bacteria that produces vitamin K which can add to the problem.

https://metabolichealing.com/bile-deficiency-heartburn-poor-digestion-toxicity/

This is a very in depth article on bile.

https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamainternalmedicine/fullarticle/1105662

Adrenal Fatigue

Endotoxins damage betadorphin nerves in the hypothalamus. This results in raised cortisol levels. This is another reason why it is very important to address inflammation. This results in insulin resistance and suppressed progesterone production. LPS causes high histamine levels , progesterone and testosterone are needed to protect us from histamines. There is supplements mentioned in my post on supplements that discusses ways to reduce histamines this is also cover in my post on how our gut bacteria effect our genes. We have histamine reducing bacteria. Adaptogenic herbs help with the adrenal fatigue caused by LPS.

http://www.mdpi.com/1422-0067/18/7/1431

Kupffer Cells

LPS stimulates liver kupffer cells which can cause a rise in reactive oxygen species and inflammatory cytokines. The body can get stuck in a cycle that escalates and the inflammation and oxidative stress will keep increasing. This is why it is very important to address oxidative stress, inflammation and work on detoxing LPS and excitotoxins so the cycle can be broken and healing can begin. If not broken this can result in liver fibrosis. Because kupffer cells are needed to detox LPS we do not want to inhibit them but we need to detox, and address metabolic issues and oxidative stress.

Bradykinin

Bradykinin – it is a peptide that causes blood vessels to dilate, which decreases blood pressure. Bradykinan stimulates the release of Nitric Oxide, Postacyclin, Endothelium-derived hyperpolarizing factor. This allows the smooth muscle to relax , increasing their diameter which reduces blood pressure. Bradykinin raises internal calcium levels in neocortical astrocytes. Astrocytes fuel neurons with energy during times of stress , physical exertion, and periods of fasting. They are important in the flow of blood to the brain. Astrocytes clear excess postassium in extracellular space. Excess potassium can cause epilepsy. Astrocytes in the hippocampus suppress synaptic transmition by releasing ATP which through a number of processes produces adenosine. Adenosine prevents tachycardia. Astrocytes promote the healing of nerves but if over stimulated can cause nerve damage. Astrocytes can also promote nerve cell and brain cell growth. ACE inhibition raises bradykinin and causes the dry cough people get from taking ACE inhibitors. High bradykinin levels causes asthma, and swelling in legs , face, and abdomin. High bradykinin levels also causes vomiting and airway obstruction. Bromelain, aloe vera, and polyphenols reduce the effects of bardykinin.

HPA axis is important in the homeostasis of bradykinin.

This is an description of bradykinin and the health effects.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=26517864

Bradykinin can increase inflammation in our lungs during infections.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22935637

So we can see not enough bradykinin can effect our health as much as too much bradykinin. Homeostasis should be the goal with all our health goals. Once we reach homeostasis then we need to work towards maintaining it to prevent over doing things which can cause just as much harm.

http://www.nwpii.com/ajbms/papers/AJBMS_2011_2_09.pdf

High bradykinin levels can cause low blood pressure, tachycardia, blood vessel leakage, it can cause inflammation especially in the salivary glands. Bradykinin also raises substance P which causes burning in the scalp and down the spine, also can be felt in the skin and increases at night. ACE inhibitors raise bradykinin levels.

https://www.pharmacorama.com/en/Sections/Angiotensin_2.php

https://www.news-medical.net/health/ACE-Inhibitor-Side-Effects.aspx

Glycosides like astilbene and eurcrypin inhibit bradykinin. Also keep in mind histamines and inflammation stimulate bradykinin so we must reduce those also. Most plant polyphenols will reduce bradykinin especially grapes and the white part of citrus fruit. Also if we do not have high sulfite levels , high sulfur foods reduce bradykinin.

Hormones and their effects.

Adenosine- is involved in the regulation of blood pressure. If deficient a person could develop high blood pressure and tachycardia. It reduces inflammation by suppressing the activity of most immune cells. A deficiency can be caused by excess inflammation and immune responses. This can result in muscle fatigue. D-ribose has been found to help reduce the fatigue. So those with lung disease , cardiovascular disease or low immune function could be effected by adenosine.

Symptoms of adenosine deficiency would be muscle fatigue will exercising and frequent infections in the lungs. A deficiency in adenosine causes a loss of T regulatory cells. Symptoms of this are conditons such as eczema , and also type 1 diabetes. Adenosine deficiency also causes hypoxia. Excess adenosine can result in asthma. When cells are stressed or damaged adenosine increases. This is why I freqently say homeostasis should always be the goal. Those with low adenosine may have trouble sleeping.

Adiponectin

Adiponectin is a protein hormone involved in regulating glucose levels in the body. It plays a role in the endocrine system, and metabolic and inflammatory signaling. Issues with adiponectin have been tied to ADHD, diabetes, and arthritis. Those who have type 2 diabetes, obesity, hyperlipodemia, and arthritis have been shown to have low adiponectin levels. Those with low adiponectin have a higher risk of cardiovascular disease.

Adiponectin protects us from cardiac injury from endotoxins.

Alpha-Melanocyte Stimulating Hormone

Alpha-Melanocyte Stimulating Hormone- it is an endogenous hormone and neuropeptide. It is one of the proteins responsible for hair and skin pigmentation. It plays a role in our feeding behavior, energy homeostasis in the body and even our sexual activity. It protects from injury that results from restricted blood flow, it also protects from the injury that results when the blood flow is restored. When blood flow has been restricted and then is restored it results in oxidative stress and inflammation. It also has antimicrobial properties.

Brain Nutriuretic Peptide

Brain Nutriuretic Peptide – is a hormone secreted in heart muscle cells. It reduces blood pressure, it reduces renal sodium reabsorption and increases the break down of fats. It reduces the release of aldosterone in the adrenal cortex. Aldosterone causes a reabsorption of salt and water into the body and a loss of potassium which results in high blood pressure. Those with Addison’s disease and chronic fatigue syndrome were found to have the opposite problem they have too much BNP in their bodies.

BNP is released during strokes to protect the brain from injury.

http://jaha.ahajournals.org/content/6/12/e007329

Oldly enough high BNP levels increases the risk of high blood pressure in men but not women. It is released when the arteries start hardening, most likely to try and protect the body. Most know by now hardening of the arteries is caused by oxidative stress and inflammation. So high BNP levels would indicate a problem that needs addressed. I do need to research this more because I could not find much information on decreasing or increasing BNP safely.

Things that reduce BNP also reduces cortisol so I would say there is a feedback loop between the two and reducing cortisol would reduce BNP and vice versa.

Things that raise BNP are excessive alcohol consumption, smoking, stress, sleep deprivation, NSAIDs, oxidative stress, inflammation. So reducing oxidative stress, meditate and do other things to reduce stress, get plenty of sleep, stop smoking if you smoke, consume alcohol in moderation, use natural methods of reducing inflammation instead of NSAIDs shoulld reduce BNP and cortisol.

Calcitonin Gene Related Peptide

Calcitonin Gene Related Peptide is another mechanism the body uses to protect itself. It is released during pain or other stimuli that can indicate harm to the body. Is is found in the nerves throughout the body. It is released during inflammation in nerves and from activation of the capsaicin receptors in the gastrointestinal system. It is a vasodilator so can reduce blood pressure and prevent cardiovascular disease. If too high in the body it can cause high systolic blood pressure. It also causes head aches if levels are too high. Raise levels cause the nerves to become sensitive. Serotonin reduces CGRP. Low estrogen causes a rise in CGRP and is why many experience headaches around the time of their menstruations. Things that contain phytoestrogens may help with this.

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/B9780128010280001719

I do not recommend trying to increase CGRP because substance P is usually high in those with endotoxemia and it increases the potency of substance P.

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/000689939290812N

It inhibits the inflammation caused by endotoxins.

It may be involved in bone repair.

https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/pdf/10.1002/jor.20406

If levels are too high there are natural inhibitors. Proanthocyanidins increases serrotonin which reduces CGRP. Avoid capsaicin it is a CGRP activator.

Mast Cells

Mast cells are one of the bodies first responses to an invader even in parasite invasions. They accomplish this through extracellular trap formation. They also release antimicrobial agents. Some pathogens like tuberculosis have developed strategies to avoid destruction by mast cells. Lyme is another infection that has developed more strategies to evade the immune system the HIV.

Under normal conditions mast cells will reduce inflammation

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28471519

When endotoxin levels get high then mast cells start to break down which causes high histamine levels. This results in allergies and sensitivities.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22581748

Because some pathogens can evade the effects of mast cells in removing them it can set off mast cell activation syndrome or mastocytosis. Both disorders are very similar and difficult to tell appart.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5112577/

Description of mastocytosis. Symptoms can be skin rashes or lesions, difficulty breathing, swelling under the skin or in the mucous membranes, diarrhea, low blood pressure, bloating, Inhibiting inflammation, cox, and reducing histamines helps resolve this. I have mentioned in the links at the beginning of this article things that help reduce histamines and on another post I did no gut microbiome I mention probiotics that will reduce histamines. The symptoms of Mastocytosis and mast cell activation syndrome are similar and how to resolve it are the same.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6002427/

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3122143/

Because LPS causes leaky gut it can result in mast cell activation , which leads to food intolerance and allergies. This in turn can lead to many metabolic issues.

Proenkephalin and Kyotorphin

proenkephalin an kyotorphin are neuroactive dipeptides that plays a major role in pain regulation in the brain. They release met-enkephalin which has opioid like effects. Low levels of kyotorphin causes persistent pain. It also reduces inflammation similar to how steroids do.

Has effects of endotoxin induced inflammation similar to how steroids would.

Met-enkephalin reduces symptoms of chronic inflammatory diseases.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29261263

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28647454

hypothalamus-adrenal-axis regulates met-enkephalin so it is important to reduce inflammation, histamines, and toxins because they can have a negative impact on them. Vaccinations, farm chemicals, fluoride and drugs, especially fluoroquinolone have been shown to disrupt the HPA axis. Stress and lack of sleep also disrupt the HPA axis. Thiamin deficiency can have a negative impact on the HPA axis and glyphosate causes many nutrient deficiencies. Many of us are in very stressful situations we cannot get out of, we must learn to remain calm because it will effect the HPA access. I know it can be difficult but if we don’t win that battle we will lose the long term battle.

Melatonin

Melatonin – is one of the bodies most powerful antioxidants. It is produced in the pineal gland. It regulates our sleep wake cycles. It is a powerful anti-inflammatory. It also regulates our blood pressure. It can be found in our food. Foods that contain it are bananas, grapes, rice, grains, plums, olive oil, pineapple, and oranges. I do not believe in taking things orally because often times taking things orally can disrupt the bodies ability to produce the substance so I try my best to stimulate the production or find food sources. Inflammation disrupts the production of melatonin.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5666183/

Melatonin helps prevent endometriosis.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6015458/

Over consumption of alcohol causes leaky gut, we know leaky gut raises endotoxin levels. This leads to a reduction in metatonin.

https://www.physiology.org/doi/abs/10.1152/ajpgi.00002.2015

We know inflammation, toxins , stress, and many other things cause oxidative stress which cause high hydrogen peroxide levels. Melatonin reduces oxidative stress. Hydrogen peroxide causes severe damage throughout the body including the blood brain barrier which makes the brain succeptable to injury and infection.

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/0891584995001013

Unnatural light especially blue light like what is emitted by computer and cell phone screens disrupts our ability to produce melatonin. Sunlight stimulates melatonin production. Many things have cause magnesium deficiency which is needed to produce melatonin. Over farming has depleted nutrients from the soil, glyphosate and glufonisate chelate minerals from the soil, they are chemicals used in modern day farming.

Norepinephrine, also known as Noradrenaline.

Norepinephrine – it is an amino acid derivative that functions as a hormone and neurol transmitter. It is produced in the adrenal glands and an area of the brain stem that is responsible for our responses to stress and panic. It functions to mobilize the body to action. It rises when we wake and in the presence of danger or stress. It enhances memory retrieval . Too much norepinenphrine causes restlessness and anxiety. It increases heart rate and triggers the release of glucose. It increases blood flow to the muscles. It reduces blood flow to the gastrointestinal system and inhibits bladder voiding. So it can cause inhibited digestion and difficulty voiding the bladder when levels are high. Norepinephrine prevents low blood pressure. Low levels of norepinephrine have been tied to depression and ADHD. So we can see how we need to reach homeostasis with norepinephrine because it has dramatic effects throughout the body. Metabolic issues can prevent it from being produced or prevent it’s break down. So if we have high or low levels we must address metabolic issues especially phenylketonuria.

Norepinephrine helps protect from sepsis.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25277635

Low norepinephrine has been linked to depression, impaired thinking, physical weakness, chronic fatigue syndrome, and fibromaylgia. High norepinephrine has been linked to increased attention, increased awareness, anxiety, restlessness, paranoia, increased heart rate, hypertension, reduced sensitivity to pain, ADHD, depression and difficulty digesting foods and difficulty urinating. There are ways discussed in this article to reduce or raise levels. Though the effects it has is incorrect in this article. Many sites state these things but when I read the research the effects I mentioned above is what the research has shown. So they may be correct on how to lover or raise levels but many sites are incorrect on the effects of norepinephrine.

Tryptophan and tyrosine are used to produce norepinephrine. I used this when my myocarditis was at it’s worse and I had severe POTS.

Endotoxemia or Sepsis

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

Because most allopathic medical treatment is not based valid scientific research you need to be your own advocate and do your research. Allopathic medicine is usually about 50 years behind the science. So in order to be healthier you will need to educate yourself and become an advocate for your own health . It takes a lot of self discipline and persistence.

I did a post on Jarisch-Herxheimer reaction. Herxing is a symptom of the die off from an infection. In this post I am going to show what all is going on as a pathogens die off. One of the major toxins is endotoxins they also secrete excitoxins. They cause most of the damage from dying pathogens. The presence of endotoxins in the blood is called endotoxemia. You do not have to be treated with antibiotics to experience it. The body fighting infection can raise endotoxins in the blood. Many now days most likely are carrying and infection of some type and do not know it because vaccinations have been found to be contaminated with mycoplasma and most have been vaccinated. Mycoplasmas can live in the body for many years. Endotoxins are usually connected to bacterial infections. Endotoxins can be released when fungal infections die off also. When Candida is in pathogenic form it will release endotoxins when it dies off. Inflammation is the main culprit in endotoxemia. It can inhibit many metabolic pathways, disable the immune system. As a matter of fact it is one of the main tactics used by HIV and Lyme to disable the immune system. It will take a while but I will try to do post on methods used to address the many health issues caused by endotoxemia.

Now GMOs and the farm chemicals used in agriculture can cause the very same things but have to be dealt with somewhat differently. Our food supply has been found to contain high levels of farm chemicals and the BT Toxin in Genetically Modified foods has been found to cause the body to react the same way it would if you had food poisoning. That is why many feel like they have a brick in their stomach after eating. So you can experience sepsis which would resemble endotoxemia but need to address it somewhat differently. If time permits I will address sepsis caused by things like these. Imagine if you are dealing with an infection which many infections can persist for years without major symptoms and now you are dealing with sepsis from farm chemicals. Now you have become Synergistically Ill. Vaccine injury is a result of a synergistic effect of the bodies reactions to the pathogen in the vaccine and the toxins so it would be a synergistic type illness. Just just as we would need to learn how farm toxins and environmental toxins contributed synergistically to make someone ill and how those toxins effected the body would need to be researched and addressed so would the toxins in the vaccine that caused the injury and how the toxins in them have effected the body.

Inflammation causes changes in pathways involved in oxidative stress, fatty acid metabolism, the bodies system for healing and protecting itself, and the coagulation system of the blood. This can result in a variety of illnesses and each is effected differently. In some instances in the elderly instead of having excess inflammation their inflammatory response may be inhibited which can prevent the body from healing and protecting itself. Once Lyme sets off an inflammatory response it will use this tactic to protect itself from an immune response. Lyme sets off an inflammatory response to initially evade the immune system. This causes the body to unleash an all out attack but Lyme is prepared for such an attack and once established it will start doing the opposite and start inhibiting inflammation to help stealth itself from the bodies immune system. Drugs are another source of synergistic effects that can cause a synergistic effect of sepsis and side effects that cause injury to the body which complicates matters. Many believe they are only dealing with sepsis but often times they are dealing with the synergistic effects of sepsis and something else in their environment. Fluroquinolones are known to cause major damage to the body and induce sepsis causing a synergistic effect.

In order to detox the endotoxins we must focus on controlling inflammation, we need inflammation to heal so homeostasis is the goal. We need inflammation to heal so if we suppress it too much then we will prevent ourselves from healing. We need to reduce inflammation but not prevent it entirely.

So we must address the issues the inflammation and high toxin levels have caused, thing like inhibited glucuronidation, sulfation issues, porphyria, phenylketonuria, and many other metabolic issues that can occur from chronic illness. Not only that but many other things need to be addressed our detox enzymes can be inhibited or depleted and would need to be addressed. This can be done with proper nutritional support and diet adjustments to prevent feeding the problems and making them worse. For example cutting processed sugars especially fructose from the diet. This does not mean cutting the fruits that contain sugars in them because they are actually needed by the body and are different because of the way they enter the body and are used by the body. I have posted on how I dealt with some of these issues already.

The majority of the medical community seem to be unaware of endotoxemia and do not seem to be able to identify or deal with it.

The saddest part of it all is the medical community is still struggling on how to identify sepsis. What I am finding is allopathic medicine is usually decades behind the science.

There is newer real research on Lyme disease and it’s treatment but allopathic medicine is still relying on the falsified studies from decades ago in their decision making on patients care in tick born illness.

Bible tells us we are not saved by works alone, yet it says faith without works is dead. Seems contradicting but is it really?

If you don't read it how can you have faith.

To fully understand what the scriptures are telling us you have to consider what the works are. Their are various forms of work concerning any situation in life. It is the same for our spiritual part of our lives. In Ephesians it is saying we have to be saved through faith not by works. Yet it also says we are to do good works. So clearly it is speaking of two different works.

(Ephesians 2:8-10) 8 By this undeserved kindness, indeed, YOU have been saved through faith; and this not owing to YOU, it is God’s gift. 9 No, it is not owing to works, in order that no man should have ground for boasting. 10 For we are a product of his work and were created in union with Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared in advance for us to walk in them.

Now if you remember the pharisees believe by memorizing God’s laws and by appearing to be the most righteous they would achieve salvation.

(Matthew 23:1-13) 23 Then Jesus spoke to the crowds and to his disciples, saying: 2 “The scribes and the Pharisees have seated themselves in the seat of Moses. 3 Therefore all the things they tell YOU, do and observe, but do not do according to their deeds, for they say but do not perform. 4 They bind up heavy loads and put them upon the shoulders of men, but they themselves are not willing to budge them with their finger. 5 All the works they do they do to be viewed by men; for they broaden the [scripture-containing] cases that they wear as safeguards, and enlarge the fringes [of their garments]. 6 They like the most prominent place at evening meals and the front seats in the synagogues, 7 and the greetings in the marketplaces and to be called Rabbi by men. 8 But YOU, do not YOU be called Rabbi, for one is YOUR teacher, whereas all YOU are brothers. 9 Moreover, do not call anyone YOUR father on earth, for one is YOUR Father, the heavenly One. 10 Neither be called ‘leaders,’ for YOUR Leader is one, the Christ. 11 But the greatest one among YOU must be YOUR minister. 12 Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted. 13 “Woe to YOU, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because YOU shut up the kingdom of the heavens before men; for YOU yourselves do not go in, neither do YOU permit those on their way in to go in. . .

Now it is becoming clearer what some of the works is. Works of law. So the pharisees thought the law was their way to salvation. But Jesus stated many times we must exercise faith.

(Romans 9:30-32) 30 What shall we say, then? That people of the nations, although not pursuing righteousness, caught up with righteousness, the righteousness that results from faith; 31 but Israel, although pursuing a law of righteousness, did not attain to the law. 32 For what reason? Because he pursued it, not by faith, but as by works. . .

But does this mean we do not have to obey the laws of the bible? It seems to say this is so. But how can we exercise faith which Jesus stated many times we needed to do if we do not apply God’s laws in our lives to guide us.

(Galatians 3:10-14) 10 For all those who depend upon works of law are under a curse; for it is written: “Cursed is every one that does not continue in all the things written in the scroll of the Law in order to do them.” 11 Moreover, that by law no one is declared righteous with God is evident, because “the righteous one will live by reason of faith.” 12 Now the Law does not adhere to faith, but “he that does them shall live by means of them.” 13 Christ by purchase released us from the curse of the Law by becoming a curse instead of us, because it is written: “Accursed is every man hanged upon a stake.” 14 The purpose was that the blessing of Abraham might come to be by means of Jesus Christ for the nations, that we might receive the promised spirit through our faith. . .

We know that one exercises faith with the heart and we make a declaration of our faith. So how do we acquire the skills to exercise faith in our hearts?

(Romans 10:10) 10 For with the heart one exercises faith for righteousness, but with the mouth one makes public declaration for salvation.

So we are to write God’s word on our hearts. In other words we are to live by his word and let it guide all we do.

(Proverbs 7:1-3) 7 My son, keep my sayings, and may you treasure up my own commandments with you. 2 Keep my commandments and continue living, and my law like the pupil of your eyes. 3 Tie them upon your fingers, and write them upon the tablet of your heart. . .

(John 14:15-17) 15 “If YOU love me, YOU will observe my commandments; 16 and I will request the Father and he will give YOU another helper to be with YOU forever, 17 the spirit of the truth, which the world cannot receive, because it neither beholds it nor knows it. YOU know it, because it remains with YOU and is in YOU. . .

So it is not by obeying the laws that will save us but faith in God and his laws, also faith in his son and our King Jesus.

(Romans 2:13) For the hearers of law are not the ones righteous before God, but the doers of law will be declared righteous

Now another dilemma faith without works is dead. Now what works could this be? We know that is takes more then learning God’s laws and obeying them but what are the other works? We can look to the book of James for that answer.

(James 2:14-17) 14 Of what benefit is it, my brothers, if a certain one says he has faith but he does not have works? That faith cannot save him, can it? 15 If a brother or a sister is in a naked state and lacking the food sufficient for the day, 16 yet a certain one of YOU says to them: “Go in peace, keep warm and well fed,” but YOU do not give them the necessities for [their] body, of what benefit is it? 17 Thus, too, faith, if it does not have works, is dead in itself.

Now it becomes clear we do not only have to learn the law and live by it but we must do certain works. Works of compassion.

(Matthew 25:34-46) 34 “Then the king will say to those on his right, ‘Come, YOU who have been blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for YOU from the founding of the world. 35 For I became hungry and YOU gave me something to eat; I got thirsty and YOU gave me something to drink. I was a stranger and YOU received me hospitably; 36 naked, and YOU clothed me. I fell sick and YOU looked after me. I was in prison and YOU came to me.’ 37 Then the righteous ones will answer him with the words, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty, and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and receive you hospitably, or naked, and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to you?’ 40 And in reply the king will say to them, ‘Truly I say to YOU, To the extent that YOU did it to one of the least of these my brothers, YOU did it to me.’ 41 “Then he will say, in turn, to those on his left, ‘Be on YOUR way from me, YOU who have been cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the Devil and his angels. 42 For I became hungry, but YOU gave me nothing to eat, and I got thirsty, but YOU gave me nothing to drink. 43 I was a stranger, but YOU did not receive me hospitably; naked, but YOU did not clothe me; sick and in prison, but YOU did not look after me.’ 44 Then they also will answer with the words, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison and did not minister to you?’ 45 Then he will answer them with the words, ‘Truly I say to YOU, To the extent that YOU did not do it to one of these least ones, YOU did not do it to me.’ 46 And these will depart into everlasting cutting-off, but the righteous ones into everlasting life. . .

Now we know that we must have some works , works of compassion not works of the law. What is faith? We know faith is involved in the works. In James we learned we must have works and faith. We cannot see faith. How do we acquire it?

(Romans 8:24) For we were saved in [this] hope; but hope that is seen is not hope, for when a man sees a thing, does he hope for it?

(Hebrews 11:1) 11 Faith is the assured expectation of things hoped for, the evident demonstration of realities though not beheld. . .

The bible tells us we must keep our eyes on the things unseen, not the things seen to build out faith.

(2 Corinthians 4:18) while we keep our eyes, not on the things seen, but on the things unseen. For the things seen are temporary, but the things unseen are everlasting

(2 Corinthians 5:7) for we are walking by faith, not by sight

Without faith it is impossible to please God so it is very important to acquire faith.

Hebrews 11: Moreover, without faith it is impossible to please God well, for whoever approaches God must believe that he is* and that he becomes the rewarder of those earnestly seeking him.

We learn faith follow the things heard. So we must take in God’s word and listen attentively at meetings to make sure we put God’s word on the tablet of our hearts. It should guide all we do.

(Romans 10:17) 17 So faith follows the thing heard. In turn the thing heard is through the word about Christ. . .

2Timothy 3:16  All Scripture is inspired of Goda and beneficial for teaching,b for reproving, for setting things straight,* for disciplining in righteousness

We must do personal research to verify that all we are being told is true. We must look deeply into God’s word.

Acts 17:11 11  Now these were more noble-minded than those in Thes·sa·lo·niʹca, for they accepted the word with the greatest eagerness of mind, carefully examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so.

We learn that faith is a fruit of the spirit so faith comes from God as a blessing of the holy spirit. How do we acquire the spirit. By asking our heavenly father.

(Luke 11:12, 13) . . .? 13 Therefore, if YOU, although being wicked, know how to give good gifts to YOUR children, how much more so will the Father in heaven give holy spirit to those asking him!”

(Galatians 5:22, 23) 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. . .

Once we acquire faith we must exercise it by speaking to others about the reason for our faith.

(Romans 10:10) 10 For with the heart one exercises faith for righteousness, but with the mouth one makes public declaration for salvation.

(Hebrews 13:15) 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.

So it is not through works we are saved but through our faith and our showing our faith. The works would be the results of the fruits of the spirit. So we can see it is not the works of the laws of God but the works of our faith.

Colossians 1:9, 10) . . ., 10 in order to walk worthily of Jehovah to the end of fully pleasing [him] as YOU go on bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the accurate knowledge of God. . .

(Matthew 5:16) 16 Likewise let YOUR light shine before men, that they may see YOUR fine works and give glory to YOUR Father who is in the heavens. . .

So the work we must do is make sure we represent God in a righteous way so as not to smear his good name and prove our faith.

(Ephesians 5:6-12) 6 Let no man deceive YOU with empty words, for because of the aforesaid things the wrath of God is coming upon the sons of disobedience. 7 Therefore do not become partakers with them; 8 for YOU were once darkness, but YOU are now light in connection with [the] Lord. Go on walking as children of light, 9 for the fruitage of the light consists of every sort of goodness and righteousness and truth. 10 Keep on making sure of what is acceptable to the Lord; 11 and quit sharing with [them] in the unfruitful works that belong to the darkness, but, rather, even be reproving [them], 12 for the things that take place in secret by them it is shameful even to relate.

Hopefully if we please God we will escape the destruction that is coming upon this wicked system and those who are causing God’s good name to be spoken of abusively.

(Titus 2:6-8) 6 Likewise keep on exhorting the younger men to be sound in mind, 7 in all things showing yourself an example of fine works; showing uncorruptness in your teaching, seriousness, 8 wholesome speech which cannot be condemned; so that the man on the opposing side may get ashamed, having nothing vile to say about us. . .

(2 Peter 2:1-6) 2 However, there also came to be false prophets among the people, as there will also be false teachers among YOU. These very ones will quietly bring in destructive sects and will disown even the owner that bought them, bringing speedy destruction upon themselves. 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. 4 Certainly if God did not hold back from punishing the angels that sinned, but, by throwing them into Tar′ta·rus, delivered them to pits of dense darkness to be reserved for judgment; 5 and he did not hold back from punishing an ancient world, but kept Noah, a preacher of righteousness, safe with seven others when he brought a deluge upon a world of ungodly people; 6 and by reducing the cities Sod′om and Go·mor′rah to ashes he condemned them, setting a pattern for ungodly persons of things to come;

So the works of are works faith in which we can read about those who did just hat in God’s word and some were mentioned in Hebrews chapter 11. There are many examples of those who trusted God and had faith he would fulfill the future promises and would do what is best. They held fast to Jehovah no matter what they had to endure. They worked to educate and guide others and set examples to follow. We need to work towards what is right in God’s eyes and not mans. In doing so we express our faith in our heavenly father and his son our king Jesus. So the works we are to do are an expression of our faith.

Jarisch-Herxheimer reaction. Also known as Herxing, can be life threatening.

Adult_deer_tick(cropped)

 

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

Herxing is what most who are ill get when they have a pathogen. It is from the excitotoxins and endotoxins produced from the dying pathogen. It is why we should ease into killing pathogens off. Too much die off can overwhelm the body causing sepsis then herxing is only a minor part of the problem. This happened to me. Many herbs kill pathogens just as well as antibiotics. Even though many naturals do not have the side effects medications do you can still develop sepsis if you kill too much too soon. The Jarisch-Herxheimer reaction can be dangerous. It is why I believe a person should slowly ease into killing pathogens. Some of the damage from a Herx reaction can be permanent, it could even cause death. When I took wormwood the herxing was very bad so I backed of and took a very low dose then I slowly built up as my pathogen load started coming down. You will be able to tell because the herx reaction will not be as bad but when you increase each time you will herx again until eventually you can take a full dose with very little herx reaction.

Someone once told me their church taught women were to be seen and not heard. What does the bible say about that?

If you don't read it how can you have faith.

Should women be silent? Someone once told me their church taught women were to be silent and not heard. They said only the man was to speak. He even said this was the case at home and if she spoke then she was to be disciplined. He even justified hitting her for speaking by misquoting the bible. So what does the bible really say about women?

Notice this scripture says women professing devotion to God. If they did not speak how could they profess that?

(1 Timothy 2:8-10) 8So I desire that in every place the men carry on prayer, lifting up loyal hands, without anger and debates. 9Likewise, the women should adorn themselves in appropriate dress, with modesty and soundness of mind, not with styles of hair braiding and gold or pearls or very expensive clothing, 10but in the way that is proper for women professing devotion to God, namely, through good works.

Many use this scripture to justify women not speaking . If you read this chapter closely many things that disrupt the meetings are mentioned so it becomes clear that it is referring to authority and the order of things in the congregation. Also it may be referring to questionings on their beliefs because they are instructed to ask their husbands. God set authority in a way it can not be questioned so there is organization and not chaos. They are clearly talking about meetings and how the authority and instruction should be.

(1 Timothy 2:11-14) 11Let a woman learn in silence with full submissiveness. 12I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man, but she is to remain silent. 13For Adam was formed first, then Eve. 1Also, Adam was not deceived, but the woman was thoroughly deceived and became a transgressor

God created Eve to be a helper not a slave. She is to be submissive but not oppressed. We are all one through God.

(Genesis 2:18) 18Then Jehovah God said: “It is not good for the man to continue to be alone. I am going to make a helper for him, as a complement of him.

(1 Corinthians 11:7-13) 7For a man should not have his head covered, as he is God’s image and glory, but the woman is man’s glory. 8For man did not come from woman, but woman came from man. 9 And what is more, man was not created for the sake of the woman, but woman for the sake of the man. 10That is why the woman ought to have a sign of authority on her head, because of the angels. 11Besides, in connection with the Lord, neither is woman separate from man nor is man separate from woman. 12For just as the woman is from the man, so also the man is through the woman; but all things are from God. 13Judge for yourselves: Is it fitting for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered?

We have to remember they have also been covered by the ransom sacrifice. If we do not treat them respectfully and with honor our prayers could be hindered. We are to be one in Christ in other words all are to be treated with respect who are in unity of mind with Christ.

(1 Peter 3:7) 7You husbands, in the same way, continue dwelling with them according to knowledge. Assign them honor as to a weaker vessel, the feminine one, since they are also heirs with you of the undeserved favor of life, in order for your prayers not to be hindered.

(Galatians 3:26-29) 26You are all, in fact, sons of God through your faith in Christ Jesus. 27For all of you who were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor freeman, there is neither male nor female, for you are all one in union with Christ Jesus. 29Moreover, if you belong to Christ, you are really Abraham’s offspring, heirs with reference to a promise..

Women were also blessed with holy spirit and given gifts in Pentecost. If they were given the same gifts and were to remain silent how could they share those gifts?

(Acts 2:1-12) 2 Now while the day of the Festival of Pentecost was in progress, they were all together at the same place. 2Suddenly there was a noise from heaven, just like that of a rushing, stiff breeze, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3And tongues as if of fire became visible to them and were distributed, and one came to rest on each one of them, 4and they all became filled with holy spirit and started to speak in different languages, just as the spirit enabled them to speak. 5At that time devout Jews from every nation under heaven were staying in Jerusalem. 6So when this sound occurred, a crowd gathered and was bewildered, because each one heard them speaking in his own language. 7Indeed, they were utterly amazed and said: “See here, all these who are speaking are Gal·i·le′ans, are they not? 8How is it, then, that each one of us is hearing his own native language? 9Par′thi·ans, Medes, and E′lam·ites; the inhabitants of Mes·o·po·ta′mi·a, Ju·de′a and Cap·pa·do′ci·a, Pon′tus and the province of Asia, 10Phryg′i·a and Pam·phyl′i·a, Egypt and the regions of Lib′y·a near Cy·re′ne; sojourners from Rome, both Jews and proselytes; 11Cre′tans; and Arabians—we hear them speaking in our languages about the magnificent things of God.” 12Yes, they were all astonished and perplexed, saying to one another: “What does this mean?”

(Acts 2:13-18) 13However, others mocked them and said: “They are full of sweet wine.” 14But Peter stood up with the Eleven and spoke to them in a loud voice: “Men of Ju·de′a and all you inhabitants of Jerusalem, let this be known to you and listen carefully to my words. 15These people are, in fact, not drunk, as you suppose, for it is the third hour of the day. 16On the contrary, this is what was said through the prophet Joel: 17‘“And in the last days,” God says, “I will pour out some of my spirit on every sort of flesh, and your sons and your daughters will prophesy and your young men will see visions and your old men will dream dreams, 18and even on my male slaves and on my female slaves I will pour out some of my spirit in those days, and they will prophesy.

Jehovah is a God of organization so he does make clear arrangements for authority but he does not permit abuse of it. We are to treat women with the same humility that Jesus treated the congregation with. He set an example by washing the apostles feet. So we are not to lord our authority over the women. If we do so and it is tolerated in the congregation it could cause divisions in the congregation and smear the congregations reputation.

(Ephesians 5:24-27) 25Husbands, continue loving your wives, just as the Christ also loved the congregation and gave himself up for it, 26in order that he might sanctify it, cleansing it with the bath of water by means of the word, 27so that he might present the congregation to himself in its splendor, without a spot or a wrinkle or any of such things, but holy and without blemish..

If women were not to teach how could they instruct their children?

(Proverbs 1:8) 8Listen, my son, to the discipline of your father, And do not forsake the instruction of your mother..

(Proverbs 31:26) 26 Her mouth she has opened in wisdom, and the law of loving-kindness is upon her tongue. . .

If women were to remain silent how would they proclaim the good news of the kingdom?

(Psalm 68:11) 11Jehovah gives the command; The women proclaiming the good news are a large army.

(Matthew 24:14) 14And 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..

The high priest in Israel consulted a prophetess when they needed to learn what Jehovah would require. They followed her instructions and he blessed them with peace. If women were to remain silent how could the priest consult her?

(2 Kings 22:14-20) 14So Hil·ki′ah the priest, A·hi′kam, Ach′bor, Sha′phan, and A·sai′ah went to Hul′dah the prophetess. She was the wife of Shal′lum son of Tik′vah son of Har′has, the caretaker of the wardrobe, and she was dwelling in the Second Quarter of Jerusalem; and they spoke to her there. 15She said to them: “This is what Jehovah the God of Israel says, ‘Tell the man who sent you to me: 16“This is what Jehovah says, ‘I will bring calamity on this place and its inhabitants, all the words of the book that the king of Judah has read. 17Because they have abandoned me and are making sacrifices smoke to other gods in order to offend me with all the work of their hands, my rage will be set ablaze against this place and it will not be extinguished.’” 18But to the king of Judah who sent you to inquire of Jehovah, this is what you should say to him, “This is what Jehovah the God of Israel says: ‘Regarding the words that you have heard, 19because your heart was responsive and you humbled yourself before Jehovah on hearing what I have spoken against this place and its inhabitants—that they would become an object of horror and a curse—and you ripped your garments apart and wept before me, I also have heard you, declares Jehovah. 20That is why I will gather you to your ancestors, and you will be laid in your grave in peace, and your eyes will not see all the calamity that I will bring on this place.’”’” Then they brought the reply to the king.

Are women to have no authority in life? This scripture clearly shows that women have authority or they could perform the task described in this scripture. Of course the mans authority would be over the womens.

(Proverbs 31:10-20) 10Who can find a capable wife? Her value is far more than that of corals. ב [Beth] 11Her husband trusts her from his heart, And he lacks nothing of value. ג [Gimel] 12She rewards him with good, not bad, All the days of her life. ד [Daleth] 13She obtains wool and linen; She delights to work with her hands. ה [He] 14She is like the ships of a merchant, Bringing her food in from afar. ו [Waw] 15She also rises while it is still night, Providing food for her household And portions for her female servants. ז [Zayin] 16She sets her mind on a field and buys it; She plants a vineyard from her own labors. ח [Heth] 17She prepares herself for hard work, And she strengthens her arms. ט [Teth] 18She sees that her trading is profitable; Her lamp does not go out at night. י [Yod] 19Her hands seize the distaff, And her hands take hold of the spindle. כ [Kaph] 20She extends her palm to the lowly one, And she opens her hands to the poor.

Women who ministered to Jesus, so it is obvious that their role in the congregation was not sitting learning like a lump and being silent. So they play a role in helping with things. Their role is not passive and to sit and let the men do all spiritual matters.

(Mark 15:40, 41) 40There were also women watching from a distance, among them Mary Mag′da·lene as well as Mary the mother of James the Less and of Jo′ses, and Sa·lo′me, 41who used to accompany him and minister to him.

So it is clear the scriptures are explaining the order of authority.

(1 Corinthians 11:2, 3) 3But I want you to know that the head of every man is the Christ; in turn, the head of a woman is the man; in turn, the head of the Christ is God.

So now we will discuss women who have had many roles in the bible that required them to speak and deliver messages.

If you read Judges chapters 4 and 5 you will learn about the prophetess Deborah. She was not only a prophetess but a leader in Israel. Many decisions she made showed Jehovah blessed her work.

In 2 Samuel chapter 20 A women took the initiative to speak for Israel. Her actions helped save many lives.

(2 Samuel 20:15-22) 15 And they proceeded to come and lay siege against him in Abel of Beth-ma′a·cah and cast up a siege rampart against the city, as it was standing within a rampart. And all the people that were with Jo′ab were undermining the wall, to throw it down. 16 And a wise woman began to call from the city: “Listen, men, listen! Say, please, to Jo′ab, ‘Come near as far as here, and let me speak to you.’” 17 So he went near to her, and the woman then said: “Are you Jo′ab?” to which he said: “I am.” At this she said to him: “Listen to the words of your slave girl.” In turn he said: “I am listening.” 18 And she went on to say: “Without exception they used to speak in former times, saying, ‘Let them but inquire in Abel, and thus they will certainly end the matter.’ 19 I represent the peaceable and faithful ones of Israel. You are seeking to put to death a city and a mother in Israel. Why should you swallow up the inheritance of Jehovah?” 20 To this Jo′ab answered and said: “It is altogether unthinkable on my part that I should swallow up and that I should bring to ruin. 21 The matter is not that way, but a man from the mountainous region of E′phra·im, whose name is She′ba the son of Bich′ri, has lifted up his hand against King David. YOU people, give him over by himself, and I will withdraw from the city.” Then the woman said to Jo′ab: “Look! His head [will be] pitched to you over the wall!” 22 At once the woman went in her wisdom to all the people, and they proceeded to cut off the head of She′ba the son of Bich′ri and pitch it to Jo′ab. Upon that he blew the horn, and so they were scattered from the city, each one to his home; and Jo′ab himself returned to Jerusalem to the king.

In 2Chronicles chapter 34 King Josiah wanted to learn more about Jehovah. He sent a delegation to a women named Huldah. They heeded her counsel and made many religious reforms that had a positive impact on Israel.

(2 Chronicles 34:22-28) 22 Accordingly Hil·ki′ah along with those whom the king [had said] went to Hul′dah the prophetess, the wife of Shal′lum the son of Tik′vah the son of Har′has the caretaker of the garments, as she was dwelling in Jerusalem in the second quarter; and they proceeded to speak to her like this. 23 In turn she said to them: “This is what Jehovah the God of Israel has said, ‘SAY to the man that sent YOU to me: 24 “This is what Jehovah has said, ‘Here I am bringing calamity upon this place and its inhabitants, all the curses that are written in the book that they read before the king of Judah, 25 due to the fact that they have left me and gone making sacrificial smoke to other gods, in order to offend me with all the doings of their hands and that my rage may pour forth upon this place and not be extinguished.’” 26 And to the king of Judah, who is sending YOU to inquire of Jehovah, this is what YOU should say to him: “This is what Jehovah the God of Israel has said, ‘As regards the words that you have heard, 27 for the reason that your heart was soft so that you humbled yourself because of God at your hearing his words concerning this place and its inhabitants, and you humbled yourself before me and ripped your garments apart and wept before me, I, even I, have heard, is the utterance of Jehovah. 28 Here I am gathering you to your forefathers, and you will certainly be gathered to your graveyard in peace, and your eyes will not look upon all the calamity that I am bringing upon this place and its inhabitants.’”’”. . .

In John chapter 20 Jesus entrusted Mary Magdalene with certain messages to deliver.

(John 20:15-18) . . .” 16 Jesus said to her: “Mary!” Upon turning around, she said to him, in Hebrew: “Rab·bo′ni!” (which means “Teacher!”) 17 Jesus said to her: “Stop clinging to me. For I have not yet ascended to the Father. But be on your way to my brothers and say to them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and YOUR Father and to my God and YOUR God.’” 18 Mary Mag′da·lene came and brought the news to the disciples: “I have seen the Lord!” and that he said these things to her.

In Romans chapter 16 Priscilla is mentioned as a fellow worker. Paul entrusted a woman to deliver his letter to the Romans.

(Romans 16:1-7) 16 I recommend to YOU Phoe′be our sister, who is a minister of the congregation that is in Cen′chre·ae, 2 that YOU may welcome her in [the] Lord in a way worthy of the holy ones, and that YOU may assist her in any matter where she may need YOU, for she herself also proved to be a defender of many, yes, of me myself. 3 Give my greetings to Pris′ca and Aq′ui·la my fellow workers in Christ Jesus, 4 who have risked their own necks for my soul, to whom not only I but also all the congregations of the nations render thanks; 5 and [greet] the congregation that is in their house. Greet my beloved E·pae′ne·tus, who is a firstfruits of Asia for Christ. 6 Greet Mary, who has performed many labors for YOU. 7 Greet An·dron′i·cus and Ju′ni·as my relatives and my fellow captives, who are men of note among the apostles and who have been in union with Christ longer than I have.

So it is clear that woman are not to have a passive role in the work but are to respect the arrangements of authority.

There are many examples of women in various positions of authority in the bible. For example in Judges chapter 13 God entrusted his plans for Samson to a woman. He had so much confidence in her that when her husband inquired Jehovah about it he reaffirmed the woman would do as he told her to. In Judges chapter 4 Deborah was a leader in Israel who made very decisive military decisions. We know Jehovah approved because there was peace in the land for forty years. In 2Kings 2:8-20 and 23:1-25 Huldah was a woman who gave spiritual council to the king. He heeded her council and things went well. This shows we are to obey leaders. It doesn’t say male leaders but leaders. So male or female we must submit to them. Hebrews 13:17 Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they are keeping watch over your souls, as those who will have to give an account. Let them do this with joy and not with groaning, for that would be of no advantage to you.

Many take this scripture and a few others out of context and oppress women. This and other scriptures are clearly speaking of womens role in the congregation. It does not say they should always be submissive. 1Timothy 2:11 Let a woman learn quietly with all submissiveness. 12 I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet. 13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve; 14 and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor.

Galatians 3:28 Shows we are all one in Christ.

Galatians 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. Mark 16:17, “And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils…

If we are going to take scripture out of context we could assume that since Paul is a man only men have authority over demons. We know this is not true because the bible says we are all one in Christ. It also stated all in Pentecost received the holy spirit.

Acts 2 When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. 2 Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. 4 All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues[a] as the Spirit enabled them.

God is a God of organization so he has made the man head over the wife. But does that means he should be in complete control over her. Of course not, we are to follow Jesus example and treat them in a way that honors God. Jesus even set the example of the type of humility we should display.

Ephesians 5:23 For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior.

John 13:2 The evening meal was in progress, and the devil had already prompted Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot, to betray Jesus. 3 Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God; 4 so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist. 5 After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him.6 He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, “Lord, are you going to wash my feet?” 7 Jesus replied, “You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.” 8 “No,” said Peter, “you shall never wash my feet.” Jesus answered, “Unless I wash you, you have no part with me.” 9 “Then, Lord,” Simon Peter replied, “not just my feet but my hands and my head as well!” 10 Jesus answered, “Those who have had a bath need only to wash their feet; their whole body is clean. And you are clean, though not every one of you.” 11 For he knew who was going to betray him, and that was why he said not every one was clean. 12 When he had finished washing their feet, he put on his clothes and returned to his place. “Do you understand what I have done for you?” he asked them. 13 “You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and rightly so, for that is what I am. 14 Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. 15 I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. 16 Very truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. 17 Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them. 1John 3:16This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. 17If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? 18Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.

We are to treat women as equals.

1Corinthians 11:11 Nevertheless, in the Lord woman is not independent of man, nor is man independent of woman. 12 For as woman came from man, so also man is born of woman. But everything comes from God.

Women have authority within the household. In Proverbs it mentions the many abilities a women could have. Many of the task require authority, though the man is head of the woman it is clear she is granted authority that should be respected.

Proverbs 31:10 A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies. 11 Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value. 12 She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life. 13 She selects wool and flax and works with eager hands. 14 She is like the merchant ships, bringing her food from afar. 15 She gets up while it is still night; she provides food for her family and portions for her female servants. 16 She considers a field and buys it; out of her earnings she plants a vineyard. 17 She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks. 18 She sees that her trading is profitable, and her lamp does not go out at night. 19 In her hand she holds the distaff and grasps the spindle with her fingers. 20 She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy. 21 When it snows, she has no fear for her household; for all of them are clothed in scarlet. 22 She makes coverings for her bed; she is clothed in fine linen and purple. 23 Her husband is respected at the city gate, where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.

Now we established that women can have authority and often does have it. So whether the authority is male or female if we go against that authority we are going against God.

Romans 15:13 Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God. 2 So anyone who rebels against authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and they will be punished. 3 For the authorities do not strike fear in people who are doing right, but in those who are doing wrong. Would you like to live without fear of the authorities? Do what is right, and they will honor you. 4 The authorities are God’s servants, sent for your good. But if you are doing wrong, of course you should be afraid, for they have the power to punish you. They are God’s servants, sent for the very purpose of punishing those who do what is wrong. 5 So you must submit to them, not only to avoid punishment, but also to keep a clear conscience.

Since we are all one in Christ and even women were considered Abraham’s seed it would be wise to treat them with honor, respect, compassion and humility because woman will be among the 144,000 who will rule as priest and kings judging the earth. So if you treat a women in a way that does not honor God you could be dishonoring one of our future rulers with Christ.

Galatians 3:26 So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, 27 for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

Revelations 14 Then I saw, and look! the Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with him 144,000 who have his name and the name of his Father written on their foreheads. 2 I heard a sound coming out of heaven like the sound of many waters and like the sound of loud thunder; and the sound that I heard was like singers who accompany themselves by playing on their harps. 3 And they are singing what seems to be a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and the elders, and no one was able to master that song except the 144,000, who have been bought from the earth. 4 These are the ones who did not defile themselves with women; in fact, they are virgins. These are the ones who keep following the Lamb no matter where he goes. These were bought from among mankind as firstfruits to God and to the Lamb, 5 and no deceit was found in their mouths; they are without blemish.

Revelations 20:4 And I saw thrones, and those who sat on them were given authority to judge. Yes, I saw the souls* of those executed for the witness they gave about Jesus and for speaking about God, and those who had not worshiped the wild beast or its image and had not received the mark on their forehead and on their hand. And they came to life and ruled as kings with the Christ for 1,000 years.

 

 

One of the most disturbing stories in the bible and why it happened.

IMG_20140719_205356

Possibly one of the most disturbing stories in the bible is what happened in Gibe.ah when a man cut up his concubine who had been raped by the immoral Benjamites.

This scripture shows how the Benjamites morality declined and they had become worse then some of the nations who did not have God’s laws. It also shows how they put their confidence in their own reasoning by solving their problems themselves. Now if you read the whole book of judges you would see that no one really had God’s approval so some actions they took they took without God’s guidance or approval. It shows you how morality had declined and even the victims were not letting themselves be guided by God or even consulting him in prayer and they also were doing drastic and shocking things.

(Judges 17:5, 6) . . .. 6 In those days there was no king in Israel. As for everybody, what was right in his own eyes he was accustomed to do. . .

(Judges 21:25) 25 In those days there was no king in Israel. What was right in his own eyes was what each one was accustomed to do.

It took some very horrible things happening to get them to open their eyes to the reality of moral decline. They did not seek God’s wisdom to guide them , it is stated in Judges each man did what was right in his own eyes.

(Judges 19:22-30) 22 While they were making their hearts feel good, look! the men of the city, mere good-for-nothing men, surrounded the house, shoving one another against the door; and they kept saying to the old man, the owner of the house: “Bring out the man that came into your house, that we may have intercourse with him.” 23 At that the owner of the house went on out to them and said to them: “No, my brothers, do not do anything wrong, please, since this man has come into my house. Do not commit this disgraceful folly. 24 Here are my virgin daughter and his concubine. Let me bring them out, please, and YOU rape them and do to them what is good in YOUR eyes. But to this man YOU must not do this disgraceful, foolish thing.” 25 And the men did not want to listen to him. Hence the man took hold of his concubine and brought her forth to them outside; and they began to have intercourse with her, and kept on abusing her all night long until the morning, after which they sent her off at the ascending of the dawn. 26 Then the woman came as it was turning to morning, and fell down at the entrance of the man’s house where her master was,—until daylight. 27 Later her master rose up in the morning and opened the doors of the house and went out to get on his way, and, look! the woman, his concubine, fallen at the entrance of the house with her hands upon the threshold! 28 So he said to her: “Rise up, and let us go.” But there was no one answering. At that the man took her upon the ass and rose up and went to his place. 29 Then he entered his house and took the slaughtering knife and laid hold of his concubine and cut her up according to her bones into twelve pieces and sent her into every territory of Israel. 30 And it occurred that everybody seeing it said: “Such a thing as this has never been brought about or been seen from the day that the sons of Israel went up out of the land of Egypt down to this day. Set YOUR hearts upon it, take counsel and speak.”

Notice they did not ask what God’s will would be or pray to God as stated many in Judges “they did what was right in their own eyes”. So all parties had guilt in the situation. This story shows how not letting God’s wisdom guide us and not having faith can cause things to get really crazy and end very badly.

The shocking part of it is the moral decline had become so bad that it took him cutting her body up and spreading the parts around to get peoples attention to how bad the morals in Gibe.ah had declined. I see peoples minds numb now days and accept and associate with those committing horrible sins. Fornication, aborting babies, drinking alcohol until they don’t even remember what they have done, the list goes on and on and many have become numb to it and accept them as being acceptable and will even make excuse to justify them. People now decide what is right in their own eyes. Many profess to have faith but tolerate immorality and instead of letting God’s word guide them they do what is right in their own eyes. How horrible could the woman’s husband have been himself to be able to cut her up like that. It shows you that even those many may view as the victims had declined morally. Men who had concubines were in a legal agreement and had to take care of them as a wife. They were legally bound to them and had husbandry responsibilities towards them.

(Judges 20:1-18) 20 Consequently all the sons of Israel went out and the assembly congregated themselves as one man, from Dan down to Be′er-she′ba along with the land of Gil′e·ad, to Jehovah at Miz′pah. 2 So the keymen of all the people and all the tribes of Israel took their station in the congregation of the people of the [true] God, four hundred thousand men on foot who drew the sword. 3 And the sons of Benjamin got to hear that the sons of Israel had gone up to Miz′pah. Then the sons of Israel said: “SPEAK. How has this bad thing been brought about?” 4 At this the man, the Levite, the husband of the murdered woman, answered and said: “It was to Gib′e·ah, which belongs to Benjamin, that I came, I and my concubine, to stay overnight. 5 And the landowners of Gib′e·ah proceeded to rise up against me and to surround the house against me by night. It was I that they figured on killing, but it was my concubine that they raped, and she gradually died. 6 Hence I grasped my concubine and cut her up and sent her into every field of Israel’s inheritance, because they had carried on loose conduct and disgraceful folly in Israel. 7 Look! All YOU sons of Israel, give YOUR word and counsel here.” 8 So all the people rose up as one man, saying: “We shall not go any of us to his tent, nor shall we turn aside any of us to his house. 9 And now this is the thing that we shall do to Gib′e·ah. Let us go up by lot against it. 10 And we must take ten men out of a hundred of all the tribes of Israel, and a hundred out of a thousand, and a thousand out of ten thousand, to procure provisions for the people, that they may take action by going against Gib′e·ah of Benjamin, in view of all the disgraceful folly that they did in Israel.” 11 Thus all the men of Israel were gathered against the city as one man, as allies. 12 Accordingly the tribes of Israel sent men to all the tribesmen of Benjamin, saying: “What is this bad thing that has been brought about among YOU? 13 And now give over the men, the good-for-nothing men, that are in Gib′e·ah, that we may put them to death, and let us clear out what is bad from Israel.” And the sons of Benjamin did not want to listen to the voice of their brothers, the sons of Israel. 14 Then the sons of Benjamin went gathering together out of the cities to Gib′e·ah to go out to battle against the sons of Israel. 15 So the sons of Benjamin got to be mustered on that day from the cities, twenty-six thousand men drawing sword, apart from the inhabitants of Gib′e·ah, of whom seven hundred chosen men were mustered. 16 Out of all this people there were seven hundred chosen men left-handed. Every one of these was a slinger of stones to a hairbreadth and would not miss. 17 And the men of Israel were mustered apart from Benjamin, four hundred thousand men drawing sword. Every one of these was a man of war. 18 And they proceeded to rise up and go on up to Beth′el and to inquire of God. Then the sons of Israel said: “Who of us should go up in the lead to the battle against the sons of Benjamin?” To this Jehovah said: “Judah in the lead.”

It took some very shocking things to happen to get people to turn to God for guidance. How horrible this is that such things would have to take place to open peoples eyes.

We are in the last days, many do what is right in their own eyes so we can see morals rapidly declining. Very soon things are going to get much worse. People do not want to look into the mirror of God’s perfect words to guide them so they accumulate teachers who will tell them what they want to hear not what they need to hear. This results in the same types of situations we see in Judges. Very soon things like this are going to happen on mass scales in ways we have never seen before. It is going to get very bad. They prefer teachings of demons over those of God. Just as in the Garden of Eden man chooses to decide what is right and what is wrong. We lack the wisdom and foresight God has to decide what paths we should take.

(2 Timothy 4:3-5) 3 For there will be a period of time when they will not put up with the healthful teaching, but, in accord with their own desires, they will accumulate teachers for themselves to have their ears tickled; 4 and they will turn their ears away from the truth, whereas they will be turned aside to false stories. 5 You, though, keep your senses in all things, suffer evil, do [the] work of an evangelizer, fully accomplish your ministry.

(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 4:1-5) 4 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 by the hypocrisy of men who speak lies, marked in their conscience as with a branding iron; 3 forbidding to marry, commanding to abstain from foods which God created to be partaken of with thanksgiving by those who have faith and accurately know the truth. 4 The reason for this is that every creation of God is fine, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, 5 for it is sanctified through God’s word and prayer over [it].

To protect ourselves and avoid us making bad choices , especially now when we are very near God’s great day of judgment we need to seek God’s guidance and wisdom more then ever to protect us from things like what happened in Gibe.ah. We need to share God’s word with others and try our best to open their eyes to the reality of things. With the moral decline so bad we need to acquire discernment from Jehovah God to help guide us through this.

(2 Timothy 4:3-5) 3 For there will be a period of time when they will not put up with the healthful teaching, but, in accord with their own desires, they will accumulate teachers for themselves to have their ears tickled; 4 and they will turn their ears away from the truth, whereas they will be turned aside to false stories. 5 You, though, keep your senses in all things, suffer evil, do [the] work of an evangelizer, fully accomplish your ministry.

(2 Timothy 2:1-7) 2 You, therefore, my child, keep on acquiring power in the undeserved kindness that is in connection with Christ Jesus, 2 and the things you heard from me with the support of many witnesses, these things commit to faithful men, who, in turn, will be adequately qualified to teach others. 3 As a fine soldier of Christ Jesus take your part in suffering evil. 4 No man serving as a soldier involves himself in the commercial businesses of life, in order that he may gain the approval of the one who enrolled him as a soldier. 5 Moreover, if anyone contends even in the games, he is not crowned unless he has contended according to the rules. 6 The hardworking farmer must be the first to partake of the fruits. 7 Give constant thought to what I am saying; the Lord will really give you discernment in all things. . .

We only have to endure a little while longer. The good news of the kingdom has been delivered world wide. We know that Jesus is now seated on the throne awaiting God’s command to judge those who choose to decide what is right in their own eyes.

(Matthew 24:3-14) 3 While he was sitting upon the Mount of Olives, the disciples approached him privately, saying: “Tell us, When will these things be, and what will be the sign of your presence and of the conclusion of the system of things?” 4 And in answer Jesus said to them: “Look out that nobody misleads YOU; 5 for many will come on the basis of my name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will mislead many. 6 YOU are going to hear of wars and reports of wars; see that YOU are not terrified. For these things must take place, but the end is not yet. 7 “For nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be food shortages and earthquakes in one place after another. 8 All these things are a beginning of pangs of distress. 9 “Then people will deliver YOU up to tribulation and will kill YOU, and YOU will be objects of hatred by all the nations on account of my name. 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.

We need to constantly keep on the watch. Seek God’s wisdom and guidance so when our king is given the command we will be ready and know what we are to do to escape the destruction that is coming.

(Matthew 24:36-42) 36 “Concerning that day and hour nobody knows, neither the angels of the heavens nor the Son, but only the Father. 37 For just as the days of Noah were, so the presence of the Son of man will be. 38 For as they were in those days before the flood, eating and drinking, men marrying and women being given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark; 39 and they took no note until the flood came and swept them all away, so the presence of the Son of man will be. 40 Then two men will be in the field: one will be taken along and the other be abandoned; 41 two women will be grinding at the hand mill: one will be taken along and the other be abandoned. 42 Keep on the watch, therefore, because YOU do not know on what day YOUR Lord is coming. . .

Those who decide for themselves what is right and wrong will suffer the same punishment as those in Noah’s day. They will not see the signs that are in front of them and take no note until it is too late. We have to keep in mind it was Jehovah who closed the door to the arc. Once that door has been closed in our day and all have had a chance to repent God will give the command to his son and our king Jesus.

(2 Peter 3:5-10) 5 For, according to their wish, this fact escapes their notice, that there were heavens from of old and an earth standing compactly out of water and in the midst of water by the word of God; 6 and by those [means] the world of that time suffered destruction when it was deluged with water. 7 But by the same word the heavens and the earth that are now are stored up for fire and are being reserved to the day of judgment and of destruction of the ungodly men. 8 However, let this one fact not be escaping YOUR notice, beloved ones, that one day is with Jehovah as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day. 9 Jehovah is not slow respecting his promise, as some people consider slowness, but he is patient with YOU because he does not desire any to be destroyed but desires all to attain to repentance. 10 Yet Jehovah’s day will come as a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a hissing noise, but the elements being intensely hot will be dissolved, and earth and the works in it will be discovered.

No one will have an excuse when judgment starts. God has given us his word and sent many messengers. If they did not hear the message it is because they chose not to hear it. He put down the errors of many in the bible to teach and guide us on how to avoid making the same mistakes.

(1 Corinthians 10:6-11) 6 Now these things became our examples, for us not to be persons desiring injurious things, even as they desired them. 7 Neither become idolaters, as some of them did; just as it is written: “The people sat down to eat and drink, and they got up to have a good time.” 8 Neither let us practice fornication, as some of them committed fornication, only to fall, twenty-three thousand [of them] in one day. 9 Neither let us put Jehovah to the test, as some of them put [him] to the test, only to perish by the serpents. 10 Neither be murmurers, just as some of them murmured, only to perish by the destroyer. 11 Now these things went on befalling them as examples, and they were written for a warning to us upon whom the ends of the systems of things have arrived.

Now more then ever we must be persistent in researching God’s word and meditating on it, and persistent in prayer. Love should guide all we do and our actions should bring God glory.

(1 Peter 4:7-11) 7 But the end of all things has drawn close. Be sound in mind, therefore, and be vigilant with a view to prayers. 8 Above all things, have intense love for one another, because love covers a multitude of sins. 9 Be hospitable to one another without grumbling. 10 In proportion as each one has received a gift, use it in ministering to one another as fine stewards of God’s undeserved kindness expressed in various ways. 11 If anyone speaks, [let him speak] as it were [the] sacred pronouncements of God; if anyone ministers, [let him minister] as dependent on the strength that God supplies; so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. The glory and the might are his forever and ever. Amen. . .

Very soon all this will be gone and God’s knowledge will guide those who survive and make it to the new earth. No longer will we have to deal with all the oppression, misery and death in the new system.

(Isaiah 11:6-9) 6 And the wolf will actually reside for a while with the male lamb, and with the kid the leopard itself will lie down, and the calf and the maned young lion and the well-fed animal all together; and a mere little boy will be leader over them. 7 And the cow and the bear themselves will feed; together their young ones will lie down. And even the lion will eat straw just like the bull. 8 And the sucking child will certainly play upon the hole of the cobra; and upon the light aperture of a poisonous snake will a weaned child actually put his own hand. 9 They will not do any harm or cause any ruin in all my holy mountain; because the earth will certainly be filled with the knowledge of Jehovah as the waters are covering the very sea.

(Revelation 21:1-4) 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 saw also 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 peoples. 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.. . .

We need to do our best at imitating Jesus and be mild tempered so we can see the new earth.

(Matthew 5:5) 5 “Happy are the mild-tempered ones, since they will inherit the earth.

(Psalm 37:11) 11 But the meek ones themselves will possess the earth, And they will indeed find their exquisite delight in the abundance of peace. . .

(Psalm 37:28, 29) 28 For Jehovah is a lover of justice, And he will not leave his loyal ones. ע [‛A′yin] To time indefinite they will certainly be guarded; But as for the offspring of the wicked ones, they will indeed be cut off. 29 The righteous themselves will possess the earth, And they will reside forever upon it. . .

We do not have to worry about Satans scare tactics to make us lose faith by claiming the earth will be destroyed by a super volcano or a giant meteor. We have God’s assurance the earth will endure forever. He did not create the earth for nothing.

(Ecclesiastes 1:4) 4 A generation is going, and a generation is coming; but the earth is standing even to time indefinite.

(Psalm 104:5)  5 He has founded the earth upon its established places; It will not be made to totter to time indefinite, or forever. . .

(Psalm 115:16) 16 As regards the heavens, to Jehovah the heavens belong, But the earth he has given to the sons of men. . .

(Isaiah 45:18) For this is what Jehovah has said, the Creator of the heavens, He the [true] God, the Former of the earth and the Maker of it, He the One who firmly established it, who did not create it simply for nothing, who formed it even to be inhabited: “I am Jehovah, and there is no one else

Those who do not speak up or help the down trodden are not free of guilt. Their silence makes them a part of the oppression.

If you don't read it how can you have faith.

We just need to hang on a little longer God’s Great Day is very near. They make fun of us, and look down on us because of our misfortune. They even decided our misery causes them misery so instead of comforting us they choose to ignore. God sees what they are doing.

(Proverbs 17:5) 5 He that is holding the one of little means in derision has reproached his Maker. He that is joyful at [another’s] disaster will not be free from punishment.

Jehovah’s Great Day is coming very soon. Those who did not help us and who taunted us and ignored our cries for help will get what they themselves earned.

(Isaiah 10:1-3) 10 Woe to those who are enacting harmful regulations and those who, constantly writing, have written out sheer trouble, 2 in order to push away the lowly ones from a legal case and to wrest away justice from the afflicted ones of my people, for the widows to become their spoil, and that they may plunder even the fatherless boys! 3 And what will YOU men do at the day of being given attention and at the ruin, when it comes from far away? Toward whom will YOU flee for assistance, and where will YOU leave YOUR glory,

Those who do not speak up for the downtrodden and who do nothing for them will not fair well. Their lack of concern reveals what is really in their hearts no matter how moral they may seem.

(Matthew 25:41-46) 41 “Then he will say, in turn, to those on his left, ‘Be on YOUR way from me, YOU who have been cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the Devil and his angels. 42 For I became hungry, but YOU gave me nothing to eat, and I got thirsty, but YOU gave me nothing to drink. 43 I was a stranger, but YOU did not receive me hospitably; naked, but YOU did not clothe me; sick and in prison, but YOU did not look after me.’ 44 Then they also will answer with the words, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison and did not minister to you?’ 45 Then he will answer them with the words, ‘Truly I say to YOU, To the extent that YOU did not do it to one of these least ones, YOU did not do it to me.’ 46 And these will depart into everlasting cutting-off, but the righteous ones into everlasting life.. . .

Those who sit back silently while people are not being treated for their illnesses because of the corruption have made themselves a part of it.

(Proverbs 31:8, 9) 8 Open your mouth for the speechless one, in the cause of all those passing away. 9 Open your mouth, judge righteously and plead the cause of the afflicted one and the poor one. . .

Those who are downtrodden have become despised in others eyes. It is their sin not ours.

(Proverbs 14:21) 21 The one despising his own fellowman is sinning, but happy is he who is showing favor to the afflicted ones. . .

(1 John 3:14, 15) . . .He who does not love remains in death. 15 Everyone who hates his brother is a manslayer, and YOU know that no manslayer has everlasting life remaining in him.

Many are trying to help but their resource are limited. Unfortunately those who are able to help are staying back. Those who are doing what they can God will remember.

(Proverbs 19:17) He that is showing favor to the lowly one is lending to Jehovah, and his treatment He will repay to him.

When those of use are suffering oppression and being downtrodden. Many will walk away and ignore the counsel to weep with those who weep. So there are thousands of us going through a lot by ourselves. God knows what we are going through how those around us respond will determine how he judges them.

(Romans 12:14-16) . . .. 15 Rejoice with people who rejoice; weep with people who weep. 16 Be minded the same way toward others as to yourselves; do not be minding lofty things, but be led along with the lowly things. Do not become discreet in YOUR own eyes. . .

Because we are alone and don’t have help or an ear to listen we may act a little crazy at times. It happens, oppression can do a lot to us mentally. We need to pray for the strength and wisdom to make it through it.

(Ecclesiastes 7:7) 7 For mere oppression may make a wise one act crazy, and a gift can destroy the heart. . .

We only have to hold on a little longer. We were not promised it would be easy but we were promised we would have the inner peace to deal with whatever comes our way. Even if that includes death. We will not have fears.

(John 14:27) 27 I leave YOU peace, I give YOU my peace. I do not give it to YOU the way that the world gives it. Do not let YOUR hearts be troubled nor let them shrink for fear.

(John 16:33) 33 I have said these things to YOU that by means of me YOU may have peace. In the world YOU are having tribulation, but take courage! I have conquered the world. . .

If we can hang on it will be worth it.

(Revelation 21:1-4) 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 saw also 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 peoples. 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. . .

Promises should not be taken lightly. Breaking them can put us under judgement.

IMG_20140719_205356

Many break promises and now days if you remind the person you become the villain. But in God’s eyes who is right and who is wrong? The bible tells us it is better to not make a vow. It is more serious then people realize breaking a promise, especially if you had no real intentions of keeping it.

(Ecclesiastes 5:5) 5 Better is it that you vow not than that you vow and do not pay. . .

If we have broken a promise and have not tried to make it right then that has made us a liar because we stated something and made a vow and did not fulfill it. We know God does not approve of false statements.

(Proverbs 12:22) 22 False lips are something detestable to Jehovah, but those acting in faithfulness are a pleasure to him. . .

We may make a promise because we don’t want to look mean or uncaring but if we cannot fulfill that promise then we are not being honest with ourselves or the other person.

(Proverbs 25:14) 14 As vaporous clouds and a wind without any downpour is a man boasting himself about a gift in falsehood. . .

The lie originated with Satan, we do not want to choose him as a father we know that will not end well.

(John 8:44) 44 YOU are from YOUR father the Devil, and YOU wish to do the desires of YOUR father. That one was a manslayer when he began, and he did not stand fast in the truth, because truth is not in him. When he speaks the lie, he speaks according to his own disposition, because he is a liar and the father of [the lie].

In Romans they mentioned those God’s wrath would be against. Those who are false to agreements are among those who will experience God’s wrath.

(Romans 1:28-31) 28 And just as they did not approve of holding God in accurate knowledge, God gave them up to a disapproved mental state, to do the things not fitting, 29 filled as they were with all unrighteousness, wickedness, covetousness, badness, being full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malicious disposition, being whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, insolent, haughty, self-assuming, inventors of injurious things, disobedient to parents, 31 without understanding, false to agreements, having no natural affection, merciless.

The bible tells us no matter what if we make a promise we are to do our best to fulfill that promise.

(Proverbs 6:1-5) 6 My son, if you have gone surety for your fellowman, [if] you have given your handshake even to the stranger, 2 [if] you have been ensnared by the sayings of your mouth, [if] you have been caught by the sayings of your mouth, 3 take this action then, my son, and deliver yourself, for you have come into the palm of your fellowman: Go humble yourself and storm your fellowman with importunities. 4 Do not give any sleep to your eyes, nor any slumber to your beaming eyes. 5 Deliver yourself like a gazelle from the hand and like a bird from the hand of the birdcatcher.

Even if the promise is not favorable to us we are to keep it.

(Psalm 15:4)  4 In his eyes anyone contemptible is certainly rejected, But those fearing Jehovah he honors. He has sworn to what is bad [for himself], and yet he does not alter. . .

We are in times of uncertainty. To avoid making a statement that may end up proving false if we cannot fulfill it, it may be better to not make a promise or agreement.

(Matthew 5:34-37) 34 However, I say to YOU: Do not swear at all, neither by heaven, because it is God’s throne; 35 nor by earth, because it is the footstool of his feet; nor by Jerusalem, because it is the city of the great King. 36 Nor by your head must you swear, because you cannot turn one hair white or black. 37 Just let YOUR word Yes mean Yes, YOUR No, No; for what is in excess of these is from the wicked one. . .

When it comes to promises we could put ourselves under judgement if we do not fulfill it.

(James 5:12) 12 Above all things, though, my brothers, stop swearing, yes, either by heaven or by earth or by any other oath. But let YOUR Yes mean Yes, and YOUR No, No, so that YOU do not fall under judgment. . .

If we have wronged someone by breaking a promise or we have been wronged and we confronted the person and they apologize then just as we have been forgiven by our heavenly father we should forgive others. They also should forgive us but we need to make sure we do not put ourselves in a position to be judged again.

(Colossians 3:13, 14) 13 Continue putting up with one another and forgiving one another freely if anyone has a cause for complaint against another. Even as Jehovah freely forgave YOU, so do YOU also. 14 But, besides all these things, [clothe yourselves with] love, for it is a perfect bond of union.

(Matthew 6:14, 15) 14 “For if YOU forgive men their trespasses, YOUR heavenly Father will also forgive YOU; 15 whereas if YOU do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will YOUR Father forgive YOUR trespasses. . .

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.

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.

http://www.myleakygutsyndrome.com/probiotics-for-leaky-gut-how-probiotics-can-heal-your-leaky-gut/

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/

http://www.beyondmthfr.com/oxalates-and-mthfr-understanding-the-gut-kidney-axis/

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.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4235702/

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.

It’s not your genes it is your gut microbiome.

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

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.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6006167/

Your gut bacteria not your genes is what makes you predisposed to illness. I am going to cover some candida myths at the end of this.

Before you read this you need to understand many scientist fabricate and falsify research. Much of what we believe is not true if you start questioning things you will start seeing through the smoke screens. Many things that have been proven wrong they teach as if they are fact. Germ theory is one of them it has been proven wrong many times.

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.

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.

How toxins are removed from the brain.

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.

The glymphatic system drains through the lymph nodes in our knecks so it is improtant to keep them healthy.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29740121

It is important to get inflammation down in the blood vessels and stimulate blood vessel repair in order for the glymphatic system to function. Inflammation hinders blood flow and causes hardening of the artieries.

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.

Galinsoga Parviflora is the one I am familiar with and the one I grow. There are many varieties and they have similar health effects. Galinsoga is one of my favorites when it comes to taste. It has a mild taste. It also has many benefits and is a natural ACE inhibitor. Has antioxidant abilities comparable to silymarin. Has antimicrobial abilities.

Galinsoga I also and Alpha glucosidase inhibitor which would help with diabetes. It would also inhibit viruses like HIV and Hepatitis. Those with glycogen storage disorders would want to avoid eating Galinsoga.

Galinsoga is also a urease inhibitor which would prevent many types of infection and reduces urinary stone formation.

https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/14756360802667688

It would also help with high blood pressure because it is an ace inhibitor.

All those benefits and it is tasty to.

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.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/993134

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. Though I do not like pharmaceuticals because the pharmaceutical companies have a history of covering up the ill effects of their drugs and often times it turns out the side effects are worse then their illness. This one seems to show promise.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4699279/

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23163616

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. I am allergic to poison ivy but did not react but they say some do.

Azo (Phenazopyridine) – I do not recommend because it can damamge the liver. This is used for those who have bladder pain. It does help with some urinary tract infections though but can make others worse. Many seemed to have better results with Uristat when it came to bladder pain and it does not stain like phenazopyridine.

PPQ (Pyrroloquinoline Quinone) enhances mitochondria function. Improves memory, protects and heals nerves, improves sleep, mood and reduces fatigue.Reduces symptoms of fibromyalgia,ms,als etc. Reduces urinary tract problems. It is a REDOX agent, neutralizing oxidants then it gets recycled by glutathion. It reduces inflammation and enhances mitochondria function. It prevents NAFL and protects from the inflammation caused by the western diet and our toxic food.

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.

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.

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. Glyphosate and glufonisate can make you G6PD deficient.

Detoxing

Chloropyll – improves the health of the blood. Removes heavy metals. Protects good gut bacteria while killing bad. Reduces inflammation, also will reduce bad breath and body odor.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Extra biotin is needed if you do a ketogenic diet because it is used more during gluconeogenesis. Those with MS also require higher amounts of biotin.

To much biotin causes sperm cell death and sudden weight loss. It also reduces the size of the liver and kidneys. They do not know what these effects will do so it would be wise to stay within the recommended dosages.

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.

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.

Plants with highest levels of quercetin and which parts have it, not all parts of a plant contains it. I noticed radish leaves contain it. They are one of my favorite things to put in salads.

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 violance.
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
