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.

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.

Lactoferrin helps maintain iron homeostasis.

http://www.mdpi.com/1422-0067/18/9/1985

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

https://www.researchgate.net/publication/49685167_The_role_of_lactoferrin_in_the_iron_metabolism_Part_II_Antimicrobial_and_antiinflammatory_effect_of_lactoferrin_by_chelation_of_iron

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.

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.

Oxalates cause inflammation.

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

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

Oxalobacter Formingene

Bififobacterium Adolescentis

Bifidobacteriium Anamalis

Lactobacillus Acidophilus

Lactobacillus Gasseri

Lactobacillus Rhamnosus

Lactobacillus Planatarum

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

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

Avoid artificial sweeteners and processed sugar they can cause oxalates.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

NAC N-Acetyl Cysteine reduces oxalates.

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

Aloe Vera has been shown to reduce oxalates.

Thiamine deficiency can cause high oxalates.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Herbs for Healing

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Restoring Gut bacteria.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

— Do not drink alcohol.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Detoxing

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.!!

Glycoproteins – molecules that contain a sugar and a protein. They permit healthy cell to cell communication. They have been shown to fight bacteria, viruses, and cancer. They prevent carcinogens from attacking cells and making changes. They have been shown to strengthen the immune system.

Some have allergic reactions to them. I suspect it may be a herx reaction to a pathogen they may have that is dying off.

Foods high in Glycoproteins are mushrooms like the Reishi, Maitake, Cordyceps, Shitake and Oyster Mushrooms. Many dark colored fruits and vegetables contain them. Another source is whey protein. If you buy whey protein be careful if you have methylation problems because many companies add phenylalanine.

Choline – Needed to break down fats so our bodies can use them. Choline also helps with nerve repair. It also helps provide the body with more energy. Sources of Choline are eggs and milk products. The white parts of melons and the seeds of melons. If you get ill or indigestion when eating high choline foods it could indicate you are dealing with porphyria. I have posted on it.

Sulfur – has antimicrobial properties, has been shown to kill Candida. Sulfur is used in most processes in the body. Helps protect the lymphatic system and keep it healthy which important in the proper function of the immune system. If we do not get enough sulfur our Lymphatic System can become blocked.

Useful Info On Food And Herbs.

These are a list of things I have found in my research to try to heal from Lyme. This is not medical advice if you are not well see a doctor. If you take any supplements or herbs let your doctor know. Only take one new item at a time so if you have a reaction you will be able to figure out what caused the reaction. A good site for drug interactions is http://www.webmd.com .

Try your best to stay away from GMOs and vaccinations,processed foods with their saturated fats. By now you should know the harm they do to your body. I put this list together to give others an idea on some things they could research.

CoQ10 – Ubiquinol which is the unoxidized form of CoQ10 is the most bio-available form. It protects the mitochondria, cardiovascular system. It helps with the bodies energy production at the cellular level. It helps regulate blood sugar levels and improves the health of the immune system. It is fat soluble so must be taken with a healthy fat. Recommended Daily (RDA) allowance is 90 to 100 micrograms (mcg)

L-Carnitine – required to transport fatty acids to mitochondria, protects and heals nerves. Protects and heals nerves. Found in meat and milk products, also found in asparagus. Also helps remove toxic compounds generated in cells.

L-Glutamine – heals soft tissue.

Some sources are chicory root, Jerusalem artichoke, dandelion root, burdock, salsify, onions, and garlic.

Probiotic With Active Acidophilus and Bifidus – helps restore good gut bacteria. The good gut bacteria helps protect from cancer and infection, it also helps break our food down. Do not over do them or they will do the opposite.

Fermented Foods – Helps restore the bodies good bacteria, protects from infections and helps break our food down.They are high in histamines so if you are having high cytokine levels avoid fermented foods. Those with allergies or mast cell activation syndrome should avoid fermented foods.

Vitamin E (Tocopherols, Tocotrienols) With vitamin E always make sure it does not start with the letters DL, if it does then it is man made and our bodies does not use it very well.

Vitamin E Helps with energy production in the cells, protects the cardiovascular system, it is also and antioxidant. Sources of Vitamin E are nuts, seeds, greens, dark colored fruits and vegetables most organic cooking oils.

Vitamin C most bio-available form is Liposomal Vitamin C. The body needs Vitamin C to detox and repair the body. It has also been shown to fight many pathogens. Helps the body absorb Iron more readily. !! If you take too much Vitamin C you can flush important minerals from the body. It can also destroy red blood cells , also too much vitamin C can raise oxalate levels.!!

Virginia Pepperweed – contains isothioyanates which have antibacterial, antifungal, anticarcinogenic and anti-parasitic properties.

Allspice – anethetic, antioxidant, relaxant, stimulates blood circulation, stimulates cell growth and repair. !! In high doses causes many side affects. !!

Cat’s Claw – helps the body detox, also works as an adaptogen on the immune system.

Avena (Oat Straw) Helps balance our electrolytes. Has many nutrients needed for healing and proper functioning of the lymphatic system, helps improve cardiovascular health. Also has relaxant qualities and kills pain. Most say it doesn’t affect them but it knocks me out. Kills pain.

Boron helps remove toxins like chlorine.

Molybdenum – reduces oxidative stress, helps remove toxins produced by the body. It is needed to metabolize fats and carbohydrates. Also helps remove many other toxins from the body. Most do not need to supplement this. Good sources are greens, vegetables, seeds, melons, unfiltered water. Make sure you do not get too much. I sign of not having enough molybdenum is high ammonia levels.

Oleanolic Acid – Found in Olive Oil and Savory. It has been shown to unblock the Nrf2 pathways. If the Nrf2 pathways are blocked DNA and RNA cannot repair.

Vitamin D3 – helps regulate gene expressions, it also helps regulate epigenetic DNA methylation processes. Vitamin D3 has been shown to protect the cardiovascular system, it also aids in the absorption of calcium.

Zinc – Helps with DNA repair and synthesis of Protein. It is important for the proper function of the immune system. It helps keep the eyes, skin and memory healthy. It helps strengthen our bones. !! Too much Zinc can inhibit the bodies ability to absorb copper.!!

Good sources are shellfish, Oats, Whole Wheat, Ginger Root

Iodine – helps detox the body. It controls the function of the thyroid glands which affect metabolic processes in the whole body. It helps optimize the use of our bodies calories. The RDA is 75 to 150 mcg. Good sources of Iodine are seafood and seaweed. Unfortunately most sources of those are contaminated. Most table salt is enriched with iodine. Too much iodine can cause problems with the thyroids.

Magnesium – important in all the bodies functions, supports the immune system, prevents inflammation, reduces the risk of heart attacks.

Intake of Magnesium and Calcium should be balanced as closely as possible. The recommended RDA is 400 mg. Sources of Magnesium are leafy greens, bananas, most fruits and vegetables, oatmeal and chocolate. Most foods contain adequate amounts of calcium.

Calcium – Important for healthy bones and cardiovascular system. It is important for the regulation of the sodium pumps that control our muscles. Good sources of Calcium are found in greens, veggies, oranges and shellfish. Most foods contain adequate amounts of calcium and it is rare to need to supplement calcium. Most bone loss is from silica or magnesium deficiency.

Cholesterol – the body can produce Cholesterol. It is necessary for all body functions especially the brain. It helps the body break down and absorb fats. It is also important in the manufacture of hormones and balancing of the hormones. It is an antioxidant that protects our bodies from cancer. It is critical in the repair of damaged cells. A deficiency in Cholesterol can cause Leaky Gut Syndrome.

Sources of good Cholesterol are meat from grass fed animals, eggs, avocados, legumes and beans.

LDL is the oxidized form of Cholesterol which is bad for our bodies. It is found in grain feed meat, and processed foods.

Protease Ezymes – Supports good gut bacteria. Have been shown to aid with digesting cell walls of pathogens. Helps with methylation and lower homocystein levels which will lower ammonia levels. Some protease Enzymes are bromelain from pineapple, betaine from beets, and Papaya. Be careful of your source because there are GMO Papaya and Beets now. Nattokinase is a protease enzyme that has been shown to help with fatty liver disease. Serrapeptase reduces inflammation, reduces scar tissue in the body and improves blood flow.

Hops Tea inhibits cancer, known to remove many toxins from the body. Protects the renal system. Promotes proper functioning of the thyroid and has been shown to protect the cardiovascular system. Has been shown to fight many infections, even reduces aids symptoms. Has a cannabinoid that reduces pain. !! Overuse can cause seizures!!

Vitamin K2 – Prevents Osteoporosis, protects us from cardiovascular disease. Reduces cancer and Alzheimer conditions. It controls were calcium goes and does not go. Helps with the function of the muscles.

Good sources of Vitamin K2 are milk from grass fed cows for some reason grain fed cows do not produce very much K2 !! Do not confuse with K3 which is man made and toxic to the body.!!

Biotin – regulates gene expressions. Reduces CO2 levels in the body.

Some food sources are egg yolk, whole grains and cheese.

Lycopene – Helps protect the heart and reverse damage to the heart. Sources of Lycopene are cooked Tomatoes, grapefruit, pretty much all colored fruits and vegetables. Cooked tomatoes are the best source though.

Hyaluronic Acid – helps heal connective tissue throughout the body and skin.

Tumeric – contains Curcumin which has been shown to reduce MS sysmptoms and fight cancer. Has antimicrobial properties. It has also been shown to protect the renal system. Fresh ground pepper makes it more bio-available to the body. Should not be taken too often or for too long. Curcumin chelates iron so if taken for too long you can become anemic. It good for those suffering from iron overload.

Ginger – has many micronutrients and antioxidants. Has been shown to reduce inflammation. Improves blood flow. It improves the absorption of nutrients into the body. It stimulates the pancreas and is a natural pain killer. Has been shown to induce cell death in cancer cells. Promotes bone health and reduce menstrual cramps. Helps fight nausea and fight infections. Has been shown to heal the gut. I reacted to this the first few times I used it but after that I was fine.

Horsetail Herb – contains silica which the bones need for healing and to remain healthy, silicon is also needed by the body for detxoing. !!Some studies claim to much silica can cause kidney stones and others claim it does not. I would not over use. Do not take often, horsetail does contain a chemical that can be toxic if taken in excess!! Horsetail herb also has an alkaloid that can build up in the body so I would not use this often.

Panax Ginseng – Impedes cancer growth and promotes cancer cell destruction. Improves circulation which improves healing.

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.

All those benefits and it is tasty to.

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.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5823954/

https://mybiohack.com/blog/glyphosate-zonulin-vitamin-manganese-gluten-serine-glycine

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.

https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/what-is-homeostasis/

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.

https://www.lymedisease.org/lymesci-herxing/

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

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

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.

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.

Healing

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

How to detox glyphosate

https://myersdetox.com/166-glyphosate-herbicide-and-how-to-detox-it-with-dr-stephanie-seneff/

Reducing Cholesterol, LDL is a symptom not a cause.

Cholesterol Dysregulation/High LDL

This is not medical advice I am sharing what I have learned from me fellow suffers. I am posting this to give others some ideas of things they could research. If you are ill you should see a doctor. Make sure if you are using alternative methods of healing you inform your doctor. I believe before getting treated for any pathogen you should always do a detox protocol first because most damage from being ill is from the endotoxins and exotoxins produced by the pathogens especially when they are dying off. If you have high Low Density Lipid cholesterol levels (LDL) then you most likely have an auto immune disease brought on by Vaccine Injury, Lyme Disease, toxins in the environment, many pathogens can cause Cholesterol Dysregulation, GMOs are known to destroy our guts which causes autoimmune disease and cholesterol dysregulation. Also bad eating habits, to much sugar causes inflammation which can cause oxidative stress which will raise oxLDL levels. Processed foods are high in oxLDL. Cooking increases oxLDL levels in food. Eat raw when possible. Eating processed foods. LDL is oxidized Cholesterol. If you have a lot of oxidative stress , like working too much, stress in our environment, toxins. Many things can cause oxidative stress. This causes the cholesterol to be oxidized much quicker. Gut problems can also cause high LDL levels. If we are having problems with our digestive system then our bile production will decline.

Endothelial Cells help in bile production, if they are not healthy then our production of bile declines decreasing our ability to remove LDL from our bodies. There is also a layer called Tight Junction Protein layer if it is damaged particles can get into our blood stream causing a histamine response which can cause inflammation throughout the body which can result in many problems, autoimmune disease, interstitial cystitis the list goes on and on the inflammation can interfere with many metabolic functions which could cause a rise in LDL levels. It isn’t much how much cholesterol we take in but the type and our environment that affects our LDL levels. Liver and Bladder problems brought on by all the above can cause Cholesterol Dysregulation.

If the Nrf2 pathways become blocked it will cause high LDL levels. Especially if the Pentose Phosphate Pathway becomes hindered or blocked. Another thing that can cause Cholesterol Dysregulation and this one surprised me but is also affected by autoimmune disease so it shouldn’t have is the Lymph Nodes. If they are plugged or infected they cannot help keep the blood cleaned out.
Get plenty of good cholesterol from sources such as coconut oil or avocados. Cholesterol is an antioxidant. If oxLDL is high it is a sign of excess oxidative stress or inflammation and the body is trying to protect itself. High oxLDL is a symptom not the cause. Lowering cholesterol will effect the brain and muscles negatively because they cannot function without it and the brain can suffer permanent damage if it does not get enough cholesterol. When I get a chance I will add the supporting links for these statements. .

Now That We Know The Problem Let’s Try To Solve it. The first thing I would do is work on reducing inflammation and lowering histamines. If you do have gut problems that would be the place to start. Next I would work on the methylation pathways. I covered some of that in my note on detoxing. I covered the CBS pathway also in that note. If it is blocked you will have trouble getting the Nrf2 ( nuclear factor-erythroid 2-related factor 2) pathways opened up because anything that raises gluthione production with cause you to feel ill. Another problem is antioxidants will actually cause you cancer if you take them too often or if the Nrf2 pathways are blocked. Don’t over do it with antioxidants and make sure you work on getting your Nrf2 pathways opened. Now some things that help open the Nrf2 pathway can also stimulate it so you do not want to over do it. When you start feeling better back of a bit. It is a good idea to space your supplements out anyways. Some things that will open the Nrf2 pathways are Oleanic Acid found in Savory and Olive Oil. Taxifolin (dihydroquerciten) also helps open them, it is a super antioxidant and one of the few that doesn’t need the Nrf2 to function. It is like Querciten on steroid. Chaga Mushrooms have Super Oxide Dismutase which helps the body in many areas. It is the only source I know of that the SOD is readily absorbed by the body, all the other sources have a low absorption rate. Do not take too much, raising SOD too high can raise reactive oxygen species which would have the opposite effect.

Cruciferous vegetables are high in sulforapanes which help open and stimulate the Nrf2. Make sure you do not have sulfation issue which can be caused by vaccine inujury , toxins like mercury and glyphosate. This will raise your sulfite levels which will cause high ammonia levels and high reactive oxygen species which causes damage from the oxy radicals being produced.

If NADP (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide Phosphate gets too high then the Pentose Phosphate Pathway could be inhibited. Low doses of Niacin along with Zinc, Vitamin C(too much vitamin C can destroy red blood cells, also man made vitamin C cause oxalates), NAD+, Vitamin D3, Curcumin, Querciten, Resveratol, Another thing that happens is if your methylation pathways aren’t working right or you have and infection your ammonia and hydrogen peroxide levels can go up and it will cause Cholesterol to oxidize. You would think that taking an antioxidant would be the solution but as stated earlier make sure you detox and get your methylation pathways corrected or that can do more harm then good. Now if you worked on your gut and methylation pathways. Then I believe we should work on the liver next. From my research I am lead to believe that oils high in monosatuarated fats produce less LDL when they are subject to heat. Some oil that are supposed to be good for cooking with high heat are. Hazel Nut Oil, Macadamia Nut Oil, Peanut Oil, Safflower Oil, Sesame Seed Oil, and Rice Bran Oil. Sun Flower is supposed to be one of the best but it scares me because Sunflower is used to pull toxins out of the soil. Canola is supposed to be good but most canola is GMO now. We need to be careful getting too many Omega-6, studies have shown if levels get too high we can develop mental issues even become violent, they can cause endothelial dysfunction which can cause high LDL levels, and cause inflammation.

So now if you worked on the above mentioned problems we are ready to move on to other issues we may have. Avoid Trans-Fats, unsaturated and saturated fats are bad fats and cause oxLDLs to go up. Reduce intake of Corn, Wheat, and processed sugar. They cause inflammation which for various reasons can cause oxLDL levels to go up. Termina Chebula – has many nutrients that help with methylation. Has many antioxidants, has also been shown to fight gum disease. Tyrosine – if you are not methylating properly your body cannot produce it. It is used by your body to build neuro transmitters and various proteins. Good sources are nuts, avocados, bananas, dairy products, beans and seeds. Ginkgo Biloba – improves the bodies use of oxygen but use in moderation, if used too long or in high doses it can damage the liver. Ginkgo Biloba with Raynaulds sysndrome and depression. P5P methylcolbamin molybdenum and manganese 3 times a week.  Those should help get the body methylating. When the methylation pathways open the body will start detoxing so you should continue the detox protocols the whole time. This could cause the bladder to become irritated again until the toxin levels are down. Those with certain methylation issues need to research before taking those.

The liver Of course drink good clean Chlorine free water. Chlorine is very toxic to the body and very difficult to remove from the body. Do not use flouride it is pretty much the same thing., If you are having problems with ammonia levels still I would suggest taking bromelain and betaine. Also Bacopa is supposed to helps. Papain is supposed to reduce symptoms of fatty liver. Omega-3 oils also help reduce fatty liver symptoms, I alternate the types of Omega 3s I use because each has it’s own benefits. Inositol Hexaphospate (IP6) is supposed to help clean the renal system out. Rosmarinic Acid, Ginger, Ashwangha, and Boswellia are all supposed to help with lipid peroxidation using these for too long or too much can have side effects. If the Nrf2 pathway is working antioxidants like Pycgenol, Lycopene, Allicin etc help lower lipid peroxidation.

CoQ10 is involved in the processes for producing energy for the cells. I use Ubiuinol it is the unoxidized form of CoQ10. Some things that can improve bile flow are Artichoke , Danshen, Prenylated Chalcone, Yarrow Root, Fennel Seed, Dandelion, Trolox, and Carom Seed have been shown to stimulate bile flow. Hesperetin has been shown to be powerful against lipid peroxidation. Aegle Marmelos is know to inhibit lipid peroxidation. Pinelba has been shown to protect the gut and inhibit lipid peroxidation. Silicon Dioxide, Magnesium, Iron, all help to produce bile, they need glycine and taurine to be bile.

Astanxanthin is another potent antioxidant. It reduces peroxide levels, and can cross the blood brain barrier to reduce swelling and provide the brain with energy. Catalase and Chloine also help to reduce lipid peroxidation. If you are low in choline you may get indigestion after consuming any fats. Golden Rod, Japanese Honeysuckle (most other honeysuckles are toxic) have been known to help clean the renal system out.

Lymph Nodes There are many things that can cause the lymph nodes to become plug. Not enough exercise , bad eating habits, environmental toxins, stress, not enough sleep, pathogens. Mold infections are another culprit. Vaccine and GMO damage the list could go on and on. If you read my not on detoxing then you should be half way to getting the Lymph Nodes cleaned out. There are special exercises and massage techniques that can be used to help clear the lymph nodes out. Also brushing the skin to ex-foliate also helps to clean the lymph glans out. Herbs That May help and Supplements for the Renal System.

This is not medical advice it should not be taken as such. I am posting this for informational and educational purposes only. If in doubt do not use a plant if you are not certain of it’s safety or identification.

Angelica is related to carrots and celery so will taste similar. I have Angelica Archangelica and it has a mild celery like taste. Some species of Angelica can cause light sensitivity when eaten. A. Sylvestris is one of them. There are many toxic plants that look very similar so make certain you know this one before you even try to use it. Angelica has a husk like part close to where the stems meet. The one I am familiar with is Angelica Archangelica. It is the only one I have seen. It can get very tall, mine used to be then I cut it down. Every since I cut it down it has not recovered.

Wild Sarsparilla

 

Aralia Nudicaulis

Please make certain you know a plant before using it. If in doubt don’t. This is not medical advice and should not be taken as such.

I have eaten the leaves of wild sarsparilla they do not have much flavor. The roots I have made tea with and I do not think the tea tasted very good but it does have many health benefits. This is in the same family as Panax Gensing and has many of the same chemical properties which means it is adaptogenic.

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

Curly Dock and Yellow Dock

 

Yellow dockRumex Crispus

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

There are many species of yellow dock but the one most are familiar with is R. Obtusifolius. It has many benefits from detoxing, providing much needed nutrients especially minerals. The young shouts and leaves can be eaten but become high oxalate when they get older especially when the stems start turning red. Oxalates can cause severe damage in the body and even death. It is why I mainly use the root and only eat the stems once in a while when they are very young. Young first years roots taste good cooked in butter they have kind of a nutty flavor. When they get older they get tough and bitter. I use second year roots to make tea. So separate the seeds from the husk and use them to make flour. I have not been successful with that. I did see a video on Youtube were a young man used a food processor with a dough mixing blade on it to separate them and then put them on a tray an place a fan by them to blow the husk away and it seemed to work pretty well. The health benefits of the root is pretty astounding to me. There are other types of dock with similar benefits but in my area Yellow Dock is the most common. Most Docks have cross bread and share the similar benefits. R. Obtusifolius or very common and have cross bread so much you can barely tell them apart.

https://www.ediblewildfood.com/yellow-dock.aspx

Velvet Leaf Plant

Abutilon Theophrasti

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

I have eaten the seeds but no other parts. This plant is new to me. I know it is Roundup ready because I have seen it in field that had been sprayed by Glyphosate containing products so be careful where you forage it. They can overtake a crop and can reduce production. The fiber is used to make rope. I have seen sites that claimed the seeds can remain viable in the soil for many many years. So when I forage them for the seeds I pull the whole plant out because I get them from a friend who grows his crops organically and uses no harmful chemicals.

Rhus Typhina

This is not medical advice and should not be taken as such. If you are not certain don’t, do not use a plant if you do not know it. Make certain of thing you plan on eating or using.

No it is not poisonous. It is very tasty it taste like lemon aid but does not have the bitter after taste. It has many health benefits. The poison sumac is not in the same family. There are many in the Rhus family which is the sumac family. The one I will be talking about is Rhus Typhina which is known as Staghorn Sumac. There are a few other species in my area but Staghorn Sumac has the lowest oxalate levels. The sumac berry of all species is very high in nutrients. It grows very quickly and spreads through the roots or seeds so be careful where you plant it. Since the nutrient content of most of the rhus are the same I will list studies for a variety from the rhus family and it would most likely apply to R. Typhina.

Purslane a super food.

 

 

Portulaca Oleracea

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

Known as daisy fleabane. They look very similar and have the same taste and health benefits. They are difficult to tell apart and I often confuse them. So I am not sure which I have picutures of but I like the peppery taste. The older they get the hotter they get. The flowers and roots are very hot almost as hot as a habenaro but the burning does not last as long. It taste like for hot black pepper. The younger the plant the milder it is. Many claim you should not eat the roots.

Ground Cherries

Physalis heterophyllas

I am have written this for educational purposes. If in doubt don’t, make certain you know your plants. This is not medical advice and should not be taken as such.

Most know them as ground cherries here in Pennsylvania. I have seen the amish plant these among their corn plants. They grow wild in many areas of the U.S. All parts of the plant are toxic except the berries when ripe. The berries are ripe when they turn yellow. They have a slight tart taste, I add them to salsa. If you have eaten a tomatilla then you will know what these taste like because the taste is pretty much the same but the tomatilla is much bigger. Some make pies and jelly from them. I eat them but have not gotten enough to make anything from them. The chipmunks eat them before I can pick them. Many say they taste best if you wait until they drop off the plant. I noticed no difference in taste from ones ripe on the plant and ones that have fallen from the plant.

Though the links are to different varieties of physalis the nutrient and chemical makeup of most of them are pretty much the same so just about any variety of them would have the benefits mentioned in these studies.

Canadian Thistle

 

Cirsium Arvense

I  have written this for educational purposes. If in doubt don’t, make certain you know your plants. This is not medical advice and should not be taken as such.

Canadian Thistle has many benefits but is very invasive. I grow it but I keep it isolated and I cut the tops off before the seeds can spread. It is very very difficult to control if you let it go to seed. It can spread through seeds they are similar to dandelion and how they are dispersed. They also can spread through their roots which are very aggressive.

The leaves are edible but you must make sure you get the pricklys off. The roots are edible but if you eat too many they will make you gassy. It helped me a lot with my fight with Lyme. I do enjoy the taste but it is a lot of work getting the jaggy parts off the leaves. The roots have a lot of health benefits also. I like peeling the leaves downward. That removes many of the prickles from the stalk of the young plants, then I light crape it with a knife. Then I eat the stalk, it is a very good tasting vegetable. Has a very sweet taste and is very juicy.

Teasel

Dipsacus Fullonum

I  have written this for educational purposes. If in doubt don’t, make certain you know your plants. This is not medical advice and should not be taken as such.

It is considered invasive in the US but I have not had a problem with it spreading because the deer and ground hogs love it. As a matter of fact because of that I have a difficult time getting it to grow. It is very high in nutrition, I love the taste of the leaves. First year roots are very tasty but second year roots are bitter and tough.

Teasel is amazing it helps with everything, tick born illness, cancer, osteoporosis. The list goes on and on. It really helped with my Lyme Disease. It is great at reducing inflammation. It helps with amyloidosis which can be caused by vaccine injury especially vaccines that contain aluminum. Glyphosate and other farm chemicals can cause it. Also infection can cause amyloid cyst to form. This is a list of the phytochemicals in teasels and what they do.

Yeast Less Pizza Crust or Bread Recipe.

IMG_20180610_152733I was looking for a yeast less pizza crust recipe and did not find any that worked very well. Something is different about the yeast now days and when you make dough with the new yeast the product comes out tasting very yeasty. So I decided to make my own recipe. It works pretty good but comes out gooey and can be difficult to spread. I used all organic products because most now days know the harm GMOs and glyphosate will do to our bodies. I gave instructions on how to make it into bread instead of crust in the ingredients list.

To spread the dough I use wax paper that I have dipped in olive oil. It makes spreading it much easier. You can also make bread from this recipe by doubling the amount of baking soda.

2 teaspoons of olive oil

4 cups of organic flour

½ teaspoon of baking soda. To make bread instead of crust increase baking soda to 1 teaspoon.

2 ½ cups of sour milk or yogurt

mix the dry ingredients and then the oil first, then add the milk or yogurt. Grease or oil a pizza pan or cookie sheet. Place the dough in the center of the pan or cookie sheet and spread with wax paper dipping it in olive oil. It makes the dough very easy to spread.

IMG_20180610_141124

Preheat oven to 425 cook for 10 to 15 minutes until the bottom of the dough just starts to brown. Then remove from the oven and add the toppings. Place back in the oven it will brown the rest of the way as the toppings are cooking. If you cook it too long in the first step it will come out hard.

The only problem I have with this recipe is it does shrink but it taste great.

IMG_20180610_144025

I really cannot give the recipe for the sauce because when you buy tomato sauce and even the tomatoes I can, can have a different level of acidity. I make half from crushed tomatoes and half tomato sauce. I add oregano, basil, parsley, black pepper, salt, majoram and honey to taste. If you add sweet peppers you do not want to sweeten it because the peppers will sweeten the sauce up.

Mullein

Verbascum Densiflorum

I  have written this for educational purposes. If in doubt don’t, make certain you know your plants. This is not medical advice and should not be taken as such.

There are many varieties of Mullein which is the Verbascum family.  This is Verbascum Densiflorum. It is the only one I have eaten. It is very fuzzy and taste like cabbage. It has many health benefits from reducing inflammation to helping with asthma. It is great at fighting infections.

Barberry

 

Barberry

Berberis Vulgaris

I  have written this for educational purposes. If in doubt don’t, make certain you know your plants. This is not medical advice and should not be taken as such.

Has antioxidants, contains berberine which is known to fight many pathogens. Reduces oxidative stress, inflammation and oxLDL. Has been shown to fight cancer. When I was a kid and I would get ill I would crave the leaves from this plant although it is the berry that is used. When the leaves get red they get very bitter. It has even been shown to help with acne. Has been shown to help with fibrosis.

The bush is invasive and is not native to the US. It can spread and cause problems. I try and isolate my bush and get the berries before the birds to prevent it from spreading. I had to move my bush so I just ripped it out and gathered a few small ones to replant. They are the ones you see in the pictures.

Solomons Seal

Polygonadum Biflorum

Mildly poisonous. Roots were eaten for food. Young shoots were eaten after boiling for ten minutes. I have never eaten it. Eating this plant raw has been known to give a person severe diarrhea.

http://www.discoverlife.org/mp/20q?search=Polygonatum+biflorum

False Solomons seal also has an edible root. I am cautious with plants that have toxic upper parts . Many eat the plants before the leaves open which reduces the toxin levels but if you are dehydrated and starving I cannot see where eating a plant that could give you diarrhea would be of benefit. Diarrhea would deprive you of nutrients and dehydrate you even more. That being said there are people that eat the roots of both plants.

Illness And Protein Intolerance.

Illness and Meat Intolerance.

I started this research because I wanted to help my fellow Lyme sufferers who had the MTHFR Gene Mutation. Which causes problems with the bodies ability to methylate. To learn more about that subject 

you can go to http://www.mthfr.net .  In my research I came to realize that anyone who has some form of chronic illness will have difficulty methylating. The more I read the more I realized I to was having methylation problems. So I am going to put the things that helped me and the things that I have seen others say have helped them. Please do research and listen to your body it will tell you what you need. When you try any diet change or herbal supplement only do one thing at a time so you will be able to identify anything that may cause you problems. If you are under treatment from a doctor always inform them of any supplements or diet changes you make.

 

One of the toxins that builds up is ammonia and our homocysteine levels to become to elevated. This can cause many toxins to build up in our bodies and blog clots can form. This condition is called homocystinuria.

When homocystinuria occurs our urine and body odor will smell like cat pee. When the condition gets worse the urine will become dark and smell like ammonia.

Remember the bible says do all things in moderation, listen to your body and do not over consume any one thing it can cause some very serious health problems.  

When we have difficulty methylating toxins build up in our bodies. We have difficulty processing proteins that contain Phenylalanine. We cannot completely avoid Phenylalanine because our bodies need them to survive  So the best we can do is limit our consumption of them.

Some things that contain Phenylalanine are milk products, nuts , animal flesh, eggs, seeds, wheat, and the worst one is aspertane.  Aspertane confuses the body and causes all kinds of health issues even a healthy person should avoid aspertane.

Reducing Toxins

One of the first things if you have not already done this is remove GMOs from your diet as much as possible. The bad health affects on the body have been proven. They have been shown to cause cancer, put wholes in the stomach and intestines, cause cellular damage and cause an imbalance in the enzymes in our bodies which gives things like Candida a good environment to thrive. A good website to learn about GMOs is http://www.nongmoproject.org 

Drink lots of unchlorinated water. Water can help flush the amonia and toxins from our blood stream.

One of the first things I introduced into my diet was a Betaine supplement (Trymethylglycine)it aids in the process of breaking proteins and fats down thus reducing the toxins that are released. It is produced from beets. If you overmethylate you should research before taking TMG.

The next thing we need to do is reduce our intake of refined carbohydrates and all types of sugar . They cause fluctuations in our sugar levels making it more difficult for our bodies to process proteins. Sugar comes in many forms such as fructose, brown rice syrup, tapioca syrup, rice bran syrup, maltose, glucose syrup, dextrose, sorghum pania, saccharin, carob syrup the list goes on and on, sugar is hidden in many forms. 

Any thing made with white all purpose flour is a processed carbohydrate and just about anything that has wheat that is packaged contains refined carbohydrates. most processed foods have folic acid which is man made and depletes enzymes that the body needs to utilize it quickly.  Folic Acid then builds up in the body and can cause many health issues. Folate is natural and far less toxic to the body.

Avoid artificial sweeteners they confuse the body and throw our  sugar levels off, some even throw our hormones out of whack which can contribute to the difficulty of the process of breaking down proteins.

Try your best to cut caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol from you diet because they affect the adrenals which will result in fluctuations in our sugar levels.

Now this is a list of things I have used or have seen others have success to assist the body at detoxing

Dandelion has many detoxing qualities and has been proven to protect the renal system. It has even been shown to inhibit cancer. It is very good at helping to remove heavy metals and other toxins from the body. The roots and leaves can be eaten, I prefer the flowers breaded and deep fried. You can also use it in tea form. There are tinctures but I have not tried them.

Chlorophyll has been found to assist in removing mercury and heavy metals and many other toxins. It has been shown to improve the health of our blood. 

I don’t know much about boron but if you are drinking chlorinated water then you have fluoride and bromide in your body which are toxic. Boron helps remove them from your body. Those are toxins that are very difficult to remove. 

Allicin is derived from garlic and has been shown to stimulate the liver into producing detoxifying enzymes. It comes in a supplement form.

Burdock root is not one I have experience with but spoke to many who have said it helped them to detox. I has been shown to be a diuretic which in itself would help remove toxins. Those with iron issues should not take it or curly dock they are high in iron.

Cilantro has been shown to remove heavy metals and remove many other toxins.

Ammonia is one of the most difficult things to remove and can accumulate in the brain and cause things  to easily cross the blood brain barrier that is why it is very important to follow as strict a diet as you can. I know it is difficult but the longer you do it the easier it gets. Once our kitchen gets adjusted for our new diet it actually becomes inconvenient to eat the bad stuff. 

Citrulline is another thing that helps remove ammonia from the body it has also been shown to fight infection. Citrulline is necessary for many of the bodies metabolic processes and helps maintain nitrogen balance. It can be found in melons, pumpkin, cucumbers and squashes. If taken in supplement be very careful I do not know anything about the safety of it or if you can take to much. Do your research before you try anything if you are not sure.

We need to increase our intake of the B Complex vitamins. I never take these in a supplement because most people have a bad reaction when they do this. If you do take a supplement form I would not take it on an empty stomach. The B Complexes needed are B12 (Colalamin) , B6 (Pyridoxine), and Methal Folate. These help with the methylation process and helps reduction the toxins. B12 is converted is converted to Methylcobalamin and 5-deoxyadenosylcobalamin. B12 cannot be produced by animals or plants they lack the ability to produce it, it takes bacteria to produce it. some probiotic strains can produce B12 if takin with cobalt.

Some good sources of B12 are spirulina , some foods are fortified with B12, and shellfish. If you have methylmalonic aciduria or homcystinuria then it may be best if a doctor administered it intravenously. 

Vitamin B6 is dependent on B2 (Riboflavin) but they cannot be taken together. Most fruits and vegetables have sufficient amounts of B6. When they are cooked most B6 is lost. I do not recommend taking B6 in a supplement because the levels can become to high in the body and can cause serious damage.

Good sources of B2 are leafy greens, vegetables, yeast and mushrooms. 

The only source of Methyl Folate I have found is in a supplement form online they were under the Trade names of Metafolan and Deplin.

Diet Changes Needed

Because we can not get all the nutrients that we need because of our inability to consume certain proteins in the quantities that most would we may have some vitamin deficiencies. I prefer to acquire them from natural sources. If you find it necessary to take supplement be very careful because some nutrients can be very toxic and damaging to the body if the levels get to high in our bodies.

One of the first things I did was buy some whey protein it has protein that does not contain phenylalanine. Be careful they add phenylalanine to some brands of whey protein. I have seen some whey protein that is produced for those who have methylation problems online. We need protein because it is a slow steady energy so it helps keep our sugar levels steady. Whey protein can be purchased in most health food stores and in the supplement areas of most stores.  Remember we still need to consume foods that have phenylalanine because it is necessary for us to live we just need to limit our intake. Fats also help level our sugar levels out.

Since our intake of fats will be low we will need a source of fat because it is a very important nutrient for the function of our whole body. If our body fat gets too low it can kill you. I alternate which fats I use so my body will not get a build up of any one thing. For example Olive Oil has Oleanolic Acid which has been shown to unblock the Nrf2 pathways but it can also build up in the body and become toxic.

Another source of good fats is butter it contains phospolipids which help protect our bodies cells from damage. It has also been shown to protect the digestive system. It also gives our body things it needs at a cellular level. Another benefit of butter is it contains butyric acid which helps protect the digest system. It has even been shown to reduce cancer rates. If you have a lactose intolerance then you could use Ghee instead it has the parts that cause the lactose intolerance removed but still has the afore mentioned benefits.

Another good source of fat is fish or krill oil. When you purchase them make sure they are mercury free. These have their own benefits, there are Omega 3s which are very good antioxidants and very good at protecting the cardiovascular system. 

Coconut Oil is another source of good fats it has been shown to protect the brain even enhance memory and it also helps fight pathogens, It has some detoxing affects.

I forgot to list some sources of good carbohydrates so I will list them here because they also help keep our sugar levels steady. Vegetables, whole grains, unsweetened coconut, olives, milk, tomatoes and vinegar. 

Much of the iodine we get is from foods with refined starches and animal flesh that contains phenylalanine. Since we have to limit their intake our levels of iodine may drop. Iodine controls the functions of the thyroids which in turn has an influence on the metabolic processes in the body. It also helps optimize the use of our bodies calories. Most people need between 75 to 150 mcg of iodine a day.

Good sources of iodine are seaweed and seafood but I am not sure how to know if you are getting them from uncontaminated waters. Most table salt is fortified with iodine, other non ocean derived sources are watercress, eggs, and greens.  I do not recommend taking it in a supplement form because you can overload your thyroids with  it. 

When the thyroid glands become plugged or to protect you from radiation potassium iodide is used. Do not take this without a doctors supervision because you can cause some serious health problems because it will interfere with the good iodine in your body. 

Selenium helps protect the body from oxidative damage and infection. There are two types of selenium  , organic (Selenomethione) and inorganic (Selenate or Selenite). The Selenomethione is more readily absorbed  by the body but the inorganic will work also. This is something we may need to supplement  because the best sources are animal flesh and brazil nuts. I think I am going to try to find some brazil nuts because they are the best source and give us more then enough. Alternative sources of selenium are brazil nuts, brown rice, oatmeal, greens, bananas, potatoes and fruit.

Magnesium is important in pretty much  all functions of the body. Magnesium supports the immune system, prevents inflammation and reduces the risk of heart disease.

Magnesium and Calcium need each other. We need to try to balance the intake of them the best we can, don’t stress over it though as long as we don’t take one or the other in excess it will be ok.

Good sources of magnesium are greens, bananas, dried fruits like dates and figs, fresh fruits, asparagus, oatmeal, and chocolate. The recommended allowance is 400mg.

Calcium is important for more then strong bones and teeth, it also plays a rule in the function of our bodies sodium pumps which control the functions of our muscles and also many metabolic processes. It also helps maintain our bodies PH levels. When milk is pasteurized the calcium forms into a form that is difficult for our bodies to use.

Some good sources of calcium are greens, vegetables, oranges and shellfish.

Potassium helps balance our water and electrolytes. It helps in the metabolism of fats and also helps in removing waste from the body. It helps with the circulation of blood and helps stabilize our sugar levels. Too much Potassium can cause major health issues so I do not recommend taking a supplement try to get potassium from foods.

Good sources of potassium are oranges, bananas, coconut water which is also very good at balancing our electrolytes.

Sodium which most people know that we get from salt. They have spread so much paranoia on salt that there actually have been some deficiencies noted. Salt helps regulate fluid levels and is important in the functioning of the heart, muscles and nerves. Deficiencies in sodium can cause insufficiencies in the adrenals which can cause our sugar levels to fluctuate. Sodium also plays and important role in removing CO2 from the body. The recommended daily intake is 2300 mg.

I won’t get into the dangers of excess salt because most are aware of those dangers.

Zinc is important for vital function throughout the body including memory and the repair and functioning of the DNA. Zinc is also involved in the synthesis of protein and metabolism of carbohydrates. Zinc also can inhibit the production of cortisone.

Too much Zinc can inhibit the bodies ability to absorb copper. Some good sources of zinc are shellfish, oats, whole wheat.

Vitamin C dramatically increases the bodies ability to methylate and reduces oxidative stress. This is the most important vitamin in assisting with the methylation process along with it’s many other well known benefits.oo much vitamin C can damage red blood cells.

Good sources of Vitamin C are Oranges, Tomatoes, Apples, and many other fruits and vegetables. Magnesium citrate and Calcium citrate bare the easiest on the stomach if you choose to supplement. 

Vitamin D helps regulate essential pathways of cellular metabolism. Vitamin D also helps regulate gene expressions. It also helps regulate epigenetic DNA methylation. Manmade vitamin D can cause health problems also.

I take Vitamin D3 it is more readily available for the body to use. Some sources of D are sunlight. Our bodies produce Vitamin D when sunlight contacts our skin. 

Ubiquinol is the unoxidized form of CoQ10 this is the form you want to take because Ubiquinie is the oxidized form. It is oil soluble so it has to be taken with a fat. The recommended daily allowance is 90 to 120 mg.

Vitamin E (Tocopherols, Tocotrienols) . Sometimes there are letters in front of the names. If the letters are DL it is man made an not easily used by the body.

Vitamin E protects us from oxidative stress. When in food such as oils it protects it from oxidation. It has been shown to protect the cardiovascular system, helps protect the body from cancer. This is were it gets difficult for us to cut down on phenylalanine because most foods that contain vitamin E also contain Phenylalanine for example nuts, seeds, broccoli all contain them but are some of the best sources of vitamin E. Some non phenylalanine sources of vitamin E are Mango, Kiwi, Tomato, greens, red colored fruits and vegetables and most cooking oils. The recommended daily allowance is 15 mg.

It has been shown to protect the cardiovascular system. It is involved in the processes that generate energy for the cells.

Molybdenum is needed to metabolize fats and carbohydrates. Molybdenum also helps reduce the build up of sulfate/sulfite in our bodies. The recommended daily allowance is 45 mcg. It is usually not necessary to take a supplement. Molybdenum also helps reduce ammonia levels.

Some sources of Molybdenum are green beans,leafy green vegetables, sunflower seeds, melons and unfiltered water.

Cholesterol can be produced by the body if it is necessary. Cholesterol is one of the most important elements it is involved in all functions of the body including breaking down and absorbing fats. It is also an antioxidant. It helps repair damaged cells and play an important role in the function of the lymph glands. Cholesterol is also important for balancing hormones and the manufacture of them. It has been shown to protect us from heart disease.

The bad cholesterol to avoid is the oxidised cholesterol found in processed foods and grain fed animals.  

Studies have shown that the cholesterol from grass fed animals is low in Oxidized Cholesterol. 

Copper increases energy production, aids in the metabolic processing of amino acids, helps regulate heart rhythm, balance the thyroid glands, it also helps our bodies use Iron more efficiently. I would not take in a supplement form because it is very difficult for our bodies to get rid of excess copper. Touch zinc can cause you body to lose copper and vice versa.

Taking excessive amounts of Vitamin C and Zinc could deplete our copper.

Some sources of copper are Mustard, Peppers, Cumin, Coriander leaf and other greens, Onions, Mushrooms, radishes, shellfish, nuts, seeds and chocolate.

Choline is needed to break down fats. Goods sources of choline are eggs milk products, and greens. If you get indigestion when eating fats you may be choline deficient.  If you get ill or headaches you may be having trouble breaking choline down.

Iron helps metabolize proteins, it is one of the most important factors in our blood. Iron helps regulate body temperature. This is one we may have to supplement because of our limited ability to eat animal flesh. The recommended allowance is 20 to 30 mg. To much iron can cause many serious health problems.  Also if we are ill we can appear to be iron deficient when we are not.

Good sources of iron are beans, dark leafy greens, raisin, melons, nuts and seeds. Vitamin C improves the absorption of Iron.

L-orithine, Lysine, and L-arginine amino acids are needed in the methylation process. Goods sources of those are oatmeal, raisins, melon, beans, fermented foods, spirulina, sea food, seeds and nuts.

We should also take a probiotic with active acidophilus cultures at least twice a day. To helps replace the  good enzymes that we have lost. Yogurt and Kefir also helps restore good  enzymes. Fermented foods like sauerkraut, and Kimchi help restore our bodies good bacteria and are loaded with micronutrients. 

 

There are some adaptogenic herbs which are known for helping to restore homeostasis. 

Jiaogulan is a herb that has been shown to restore homeostasis. It has been shown to increase gluthione production and reduce nitrate levels.

Suma is a ground root that is used for teas, tinctures, or in capsules. It is also an adaptogen which means it helps the body achieve homeostasis. It is also extremely nutritious..

Maca Root is also an adaptogen. It is full of nutrients it is a super food.  It is loaded with the electrolytes and vitamins needed for methylation. It can be used as a powder added to food or used as an herbal tea. It has also been shown to help the body with detoxing.

Holy Basil is an adaptogen that has been shown to reduce Cortisone levels.

Licorice Root Tea has been shown to help break down stress hormones and to heal the digestive system. Make sure it is deglyhinized,  if not it could have toxic effects.

Rehmannia Glutinosa has been found to ease symptoms of autoimmune diseases, is an adaptogen. Rehmannia also helps to detoxify the body. There are side affects so I would be careful using this one. Some of the side affects are bloating, diahrea, palpitations. Recommand usage is 9 to 30 grams per day.

Things That May Help With Blood Clots.

Use these things at your own risk. I never got blood clots because I was already using many of these when I first fell ill.

Garlic thins blood and may help with clotting. 

Grape Seed extract thins the blood has been shown to heal the nerves and protect the cardiovascular system.

Ginger thins blood and has many micronutrients

Curry Powder has Salicylates which hinders the effects of vitamin K in clotting.

Cinnamon thins blood but can be toxic in higher levels.

Tumeric has also been shown to thin blood.

Paprika has salicytate.

Herbs That Help Reduce Bad Cholesterol

Green Tea Extract has many healing properties and has been shown to lower the oxidized cholesterol levels.

Artichoke Leaf Extract lowers LDL levels by limiting it’s synthesis also increases excretion from the liver. 

High Fiber diets have been shown to lower LDL levels and also will increase the butyric acid in your intestines. I mentioned the benefits of butyric acid earlier.

Apple Cider Vinegar, I am not sure how it works but have seen a lot of information claiming it reduces bad LDL

Policasanol prevents blood clots and helps regulate blood pressure. Has also been shown to balance cholesterol levels.

Coconut Oil has been shown to lower LDL levels and protects the good from oxidation.

Leaky Gut

I am not going to get into this deeply , I will cover it in another blog post. This is a list of things that help heal my leaky gut. Liquid Aloe Vera capsules twice a day. Ghee or butter about four ounces a day. I keep pepto-bismol on hand if things got too bad. I consumed a lot of fermented foods and yogurt.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Deep Fried Dandelions.

Dandelion

Dandelions Are Good Food.

   Since the GMO producers have been destroying our food supply and also because of GMOs destroying the insects that pollinate our food supply,  I decided to show people alternative food sources.  One of them is the dandelion, it can be tasty and have many health benefits.

Dandelion is one of the few things that can detox glyphosate and glufonasate.

http://www.seralini.fr/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/Gress-et-al.Dig1-BMC_2016.pdf

Dandelion is listed among the plants that help with obesity, high LDL, inflammation and even cancer.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4746997/

Dandelion has too many benefits to list. It is a superfood.

http://www.healingcancernaturally.com/dandelion-taraxacum-research-3.html

I like mine deep fried but there are many ways to use them. They can be used as greens in salads, on sandwiches, in salads, or cook them with other greens. They can be bitter so don’t over do it. They are best picked before the flowers come on. I try to pick lighter green leaves because they seem to taste better. They can be bitter but in moderation they add a nice bite to a meal. Dandelions have been shown to protect the renal systems. They are very nutritious but they are a diuretic like coffee and tea, so you should drink more water when you consume anything from the dandelions.  There is a saying if in doubt don’t, if you are not sure of what the plant is do not eat it.

This is a very good site in learning to identify plants and how to use them.

https://www.ediblewildfood.com/dandelion.aspx

My Favorite Deep Fried Dandelions Flowers.

  This is my favorite of all ways to prepare dandelions. The flavor is like a cross between artichoke heart and zucchini.

After you pick the dandelion flowers try to remove as much green as possible to remove some of the bitterness. Their is a ring around the flower with little leaflet like things on it. I try to remove them. Be careful if you remove too much green the dandelion will fall apart.

DandelionunprepDandelionprepped

Some people do not wash theirs but I prefer to wash mine because I have seen slugs on them and they carry some pretty dangerous diseases. After I wash them I set them on a plate that has paper towels so that they can dry.

Dandelion drying

   After they have dried a few minutes I dip them in a mix of egg and just a tiny bit of milk. For the breading I use a fifty fifty mix of Italian style bread crumbs and and all purpose flower.

EggmixFlowermix

   After I cover them with the breading I let them set a minute or two because it seems to make the breading stick better.

20150505_151403

 When you are frying them keep a very close eye on them because they cook very quickly. You will have to turn them once one side has been cooked.  Eat and enjoy.
