Home made graham crackers.

Graham crackers

48358115_2084671658256788_7850847905215676416_n

 

I live in an area that is pretty backwards. Most in my area are clueless how toxic GMO foods are. If I want something organic I have to make it myself , the nearest store that would carry things like organic graham crackers is about 50 miles away. I seen a friend post an awesome recipe that required graham crackers. I will post the recipe on here if it works out.

I did not have graham flour so I used regular flour even though the recipe called for graham flour. The did not taste too bad. I over cooked the ones in the picture a little too much. The recipe said to cook them 15 to 18 minutes. I should have cooked them for 15 minutes.

10 Table spoons of butter.

1/3 cup of brown sugar.

1/3 cup of honey.

1 Large egg

1 Teaspoon of vanilla extract.

2 cups of graham flour, you can use unbleached if you do not have graham flour.

¾ cup of unbleached flour.

¼ cup of cornstarch or arrow root flour

¾ Teaspoon of baking soda.

½ Teaspoon of salt.

Mix the butter and brown sugar together until creamy. Then add the rest of the wet ingredients and mix well.

Mix the 2 cups of flour saving the ¾ cups of flour for after you have mixed the 2 cups of flour and other dry ingredients. Then as you mix it add the ¾ cups of flour until it can form a ball that is not sticky to the touch. You may not need all the extra flour I had some left over.

Roll dough to 1/8 inch thick. You can get rolling pin rings that will help to get the correct thickness but I cannot afford them. Use a cookie cutter to cut them to desired size. I had to use a canning jar lid but it worked fine. Make sure you poke holes in them. I used a fork. This prevents them from bubbling up.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake about 15 to 18 minutes. Mine only took 15 minutes.

Chocolate cake using acorn flour.

acorn cook

 

Chocolate cake with acorn flour. You can make it using regular flour.

I used a little acorn flour and it gave it a slightly nutty flavor.

1 ¾ cups of sugar

1 cup of unbleached organic flour. To many farm chemicals in non organic.

¾ cup of acorn flour if you do not have acorn flour you can use regular flour.

1 teaspoon aluminum free baking powder.

2 eggs

1 cup of buttermilk or sour milk

1 cup of black coffee

½ cup of oil make sure it isn’t canola or corn oil they are very bad for your health.

1 teaspoon of vanilla

This will make one 9” round cake or one 13”x9” cake.

Mix the dry ingredients, then add the wet ingredients and whip until mixed well. Pour into a pan that you have greased so it does not stick. Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 to 35 minutes. Cake keeps cooking for up to 8 minutes after you take it out. If you want a moist cake use a toothpick when there is only a little of the cake sticking to the toothpick take the cake out of the oven. It will finish cooking all the way and still be moist. If you accidentally over cook it, take the cake out of the oven and immediately cover the top with foil and let it sit. The moisture will even out in the cake which will make it seem moister.

 

Fudge like Chocolate Icing.

I made this icing up. It was an experiment that succeeded. It kind of taste like chocolate fudge.

1/3 cup of unsalted butter.

1 ½ cup of raw sugar

½ cup of milk

1 teaspoon of vanilla

melt the butter in a pan then add the cocoa, whip it so it is thoroughly mixed together. In a separate pan add milk and vanilla and sugar. Heat and whip until the sugar is thoroughly dissolved. Combine the melted butter cocao mix and the milk ,vanilla sugar mix continue heating until it starts to thicken.

I pour it on my cake while the cake is still warm and the icing is still a little warm.

Acorn Flour Cookies and Acorn Coffee.

Here is a very good article on leeching tannins from acorns.

https://www.rootsimple.com/2013/10/advanced-acorn-processing/

These are good cookies i loved them. I put peanut butter on the cookies but you could put it in them. I used a coarser flour for these ones and they seemed too gritty. I wanted to see how they tasted with a coarser flour. Grinding the flour so it is finer seems to give you more flavor. These come out with a slight chocolate like taste.

2 Cups Acorn flower – finely ground and sifted of any impurities for a smooth chocolate or more coarse for a nutty texture. Dry roast it on a cookie sheet in the oven at 200 until dark almost chocolate colored. I heated the flour I made the cookies in the pictures from for too long and they came out with a slight bitter taste. They taste better if you roast them a little lighter.

½ cup of honey or other sweetener.

½ cup of peanut butter.

2/3 cup of coconut oil, ghee, butter or another kind of fat. If you use the peanut butter in the cookie instead of on it then use a little less fat.

Just a dash of sea salt.
Combine sugar, milk and the fat source you have chosen in a pan along with the salt and if you choose to put the peanut butter in the cookie instead of on it then also put it in the pan. Cook on low heat until the moisture is gone then add the flour you roasted and stir. When mixed well use a tablespoon to drop onto a greased cookie sheet. Refrigerate , I hope you enjoy them.

Acorn Coffee.

 

To make the coffee grind some nuts up in a coffee grinder then put on a cookie sheet and roast them in the oven on 250 until they are brown for light coffee. For a stronger coffee roast them at 300. I do not know the timing because I go by sight. The coffee in the picture is a light coffee. It has a slight nutty flavor.

Sloppy Joes

sloppy joe

 

I love sloppy Joes but because the canned ones are loaded with GMOs which contain glyphosate and they also have additives that are toxic I decided to figure out how to make my own. I feel that this is better then any canned sloppy joe you can find. I nailed it on my first try.

2 pounds of ground beef

1/4 cup of chopped onion.

1/4 cup of chopped green pepper.

1 teaspoon of garlic powder.

1 teaspoon of mustard.

2 cups of ketchup.

3 teaspoons of brown sugar.

Add salt and black pepper to taste.

Quick and easy noodle recipe.

 

Noodles

I have a tendency to mix things together when I crave them. This is a result of one of those times.

Cook some sort of noodle that you prefer about 5 cups worth remember many types of pasta expand when cooked.

Add mix vegetables, I added about 8 ounces of mixed vegetables.

Add one stick of butter.

I cut up pepperoni and added it also. I just cut about 15 then slices of pepperoni up.

Add salt and pepper to taste.

Lee’s chicken sauce.

 

 

Lees yummy chicken

 

I made this up because I wanted something different. I combined all the things I was craving and formed a new chicken recipe. I really enjoyed it and thought it tasted great. Trust me it taste much better then it looks.

This is the ingredient list for the sauce.

½ cup of flour

2 teaspoons of garlic salt.

1 teaspoon of ginger

2 Tablespoons of paprika.

2/3 cup of raw honey.

½ cup of water

1 teaspoon of Worcestershire suace.

¼ cup of coconut aminos.

1 Tablespoon of onion powder.

Mix all ingredients together and cook on top of the stove until it thickens.

Take 5 large chicken breast. Cook them how ever you prefer whether you fry them or roast them in the oven.

When the chicken breast are cooked pour the sauce over the chicken.

Long John Silver’s like breading for fish.

Since fast food has so many toxins and are loaded with GMOs and Glyphosate I decided I would figure out the recipes to my favorite fast food restaurants. I think I knocked it out of the park with this one it taste just like LJS breading to me. Many fast food places have closed and they just cannot figure out why people are no longer eating there. Well it is a good thing because people are learning to cook for themselves again. The fast food has so many toxins and chemical additives now they no longer taste as good as they used to. I remember what they used to taste like and I am trying my best to figure out how they make them so I can enjoy the way it used to be.

fish

 

Long John Silvers like breading.

Make sure you use organic. If you do not know why look at my post on GMOs and glyphosate. Very bad for the body.

1/8 Cup of corn flour

1/8 Cup of Spelt flour.

You can just use ¼ cup of regular flour in place of the other flours , I use those more for the golden color they give the breading.

1 ½ cup of wheat flour

2 Tablespoons of some type of starch.

¼ TSP of baking soda

¼ TSP of baking powder.

1 Teaspoon of honey

½ TSP of onion powder

½ TSP of garlic powder

1 cup of buttermilk. If you do not have buttermilk then you can add a tablespoon of vinegar to regular milk and use it. You may need more or less milk I am guessing on this part because I do not use measuring cups when I cook.

Mix the dry ingredients well then add the milk and blend together mixing it very good.

Dip the fish in the batter and let it set on a cookie sheet for about 20 minutes. Then deep fry until the fish starts to float. If you over cook it , it will get gooey. So when it is golden brown and starts to float it should be done. It does not take fish long to cook just a couple of minutes.

Pull fish from grease when fully cooked and place on a wire rack to drain the grease.

KFC like chicken recipe.

kfc_n

Please use organic, many herbicides and pesticide are very damaging to the body. Also GMO products contain BT Toxin which has been found to cause the body to react the same way it would if you have food poisoning. If you ever ate something and it felt like a brick sitting in your stomach you have been damaged by GMOs and the BT Toxins. They can inhibit bile production and so can the glyphosate or glufosinate they spray on them.

2/3 tsp salt

1/16 tsp dried thyme

½ tsp dried oregano

1 tsp celery salt

3 tablespoons black pepper

1 tablespoon dried mustard

3 tablespoons paparika

2 tablespoons garlic salt

1 tablespoon ground ginger.

Place spices in food processor until ground up fine.

Combine 1 cups flour , ½ cup spelt flour, ½ cup masa harina. You do not have to use the other flours you can just use two cups of flour instead but I found adding those flours made it crispier.

combine ground spices with flour and mix

combine and mix 1 egg with 2 cups of butter milk. Beat them until blended well. If you do not have butter milk I have added 2 tablespoons of vinegar with regular milk and got the same results.

Add egg and milk to flour spice mix and stir very well

dip chicken in mix then set on cookie sheets for 20 minutes to let the breading dry a little.

Throw in deep fryer. When you see very few bubles it is time to remove them from the grease. Set on a rack to drain the grease. I found when you set them on a plate with paper towels the breading on the side that is facing down does not get crisp.

How toxic is your food?

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

This website tracks the toxicity of food additives.

https://www.ewg.org/sites/humantoxome/

Many of the chemicals they use in foods in the U.S. you would serve prison time if you used them in other nations.

Most know now days how toxic GMOs are and how toxic the foods are that contain farm chemicals. I may briefly cover farm chemicals but I am mostly going to cover things that are less known. I have a new rule. If I cannot pronounce or spell the ingredients in something I do not buy it for the simple reason when I look those words up the ingredient usually ends up being toxic to our bodies. So lets take a look at some of these ingredients.  If you are interested in learning about the toxic effects of GMOs find my post the harm they do is vast and would make this too long if I included those in this post. The reason so many are sick now days is because we have the synergistic effects of the fake medicine and the toxic effects of our food. This is overwhelming the bodies ability to detox and heal. The end result is chronic illness.

There are many toxins used in our food.

There are websites with list of ingredients. I will post links to those and then will post links on more information on the individual substances. Fast food is one of the worst offenders when it comes to toxins in food. Many of these ingredients are found in combination with each other in processed foods. So most likely are working synergistically with each other to have a negative impact on our health.

Next comes bread it is loaded with toxins.

http://naturallysavvy.com/eat/scary-ingredients-used-in-bread-manufacturing

What azodicarbonamide? This is an ingredient used to make products made from rubber. It can cause food sensitivities, asthma, and have effects on hormone function. It is used in bread making.It is difficult to find research on it’s ill health effects of those working with it have been well documented. Sad they can put things in our food without requiring it to be tested for safety and health effects.

https://www.ewg.org/research/nearly-500-ways-make-yoga-mat-sandwich#.W1XS49eYXMo

When products are cooked that contain azoicarbonamide a biproduct is produced called semicarbazide. Which is found in foods especially bread products and products that contain rubber seals. It inhibits MAO and has been found to cause hypertension. Now if you search I guarentee they will put a twist on this and find health benefits of semicarbazide. Then they will promote that even though the health benefits would only be for a small number of people and many others would be harmed by the effects.

Azodicarbonamide suppresses the immune system.

carrageenen in our food has been found to cause inflammation. I looked at studies of plants that contained it and it does not have inflammatory effects when consuming the whole plant. The problem arises when they start to isolate the chemicals from plants and use them in concentrated forms. Even then I would be cautious eating it if you are prone to inflammation or have immune issues. From what I could gather for the most part it is safe.

Sodium bisulfite in food would only be a problem if you had sulfation issues or had high sulfite levels. I did a post on it called sulfation.

The interesting thing with sugar is if it was in it’s raw form the studies I looked at did not show negative effects. But when it was in it’s processed form I noticed studies indicated that it increased cancer and heart disease risk. Seems to me this is like the pharmaceuticals that are made from purified chemicals from plants. The food industry actually funded studies to show it was not bad for your health and as usual the government only relied on their research and not independent research . We need to ask ourselves. Why does the government only look at corporate sponsored research. Another thing we need to ask ourselves is when this corporate sponsored research gets proven to be incorrect why does it not get retracted like the independent research does when it is incorrect. Why the double standards. It shows that even those that publish the research are corrupt and only have corporate interest at heart.

There are so many myth propigated not only by the food industry but also by the pharmaceutical industry and those in power will fall pray to their false scare tactics. These people are supposed to be highly educated. Really???? How can they not see chronic illness has taken a dramatic increase since they have listened to the fear mongering tactics of the food industry and big pharmacy. Should the fact that chronic illness has taken a dramatic climb opened their eyes to the truth? I know we aren’t supposed to speculate but makes me wonder if they do not have their hands in the corporate pockets.

Even though independent research clearly shows why obesity and chronic illness is growing those in positions of power remain blind. Can they lack the intelligence to see what the truth is or is their greed for power and money blinding them?

The sugar industry new and withheld the truth. The government knows these things and usually has access to their research when others do not. So why did they permit them to lie about the dangers of sugar?

Even though fat protects the heart and body the sugar industry paid scientist to falsify reports and blame fat for the heart disease and chronic illness. This has resulted in a dramatic climb in heart disease, diabetes and  many other illnesses caused by heart disease. The true culprit is sugar. Not the sugar in fruit or the sugar in vegetables which the body needs but raw sugar like processed sugar and processed fructose. I have read research on the fructose in fruit and they actually do have the opposite effects of processed and purified fructose. Our bodies were not meant to get nutrients in this purified manor. In order to discredit true researchers big corporations hold independent researchers to a different standard then the do themselves. If those standards are applied to their research almost all of it would have to be retracted yet those standards are not applied to big corporations and their fake studies do not get retracted no matter how many errors are found. Why???

Noq another thing to note is where the food is grown. If it is grown near factories there is a chance the food contains heavy metals. There are many nations that are lax on their pollution laws but things from those farms can still be labeled organic if they do not use herbicides or pesticides and are not GMO. Granted if the gut is intact only 5% of the toxins make it into the blood stream but it is difficult to get non GMO foods and to avoid vaccinations in which both cause leaky gut and vaccinations are becoming mandatory in many areas. So avoiding toxins like sugar and the above mentioned is very important now days if we do not want to get chronically ill.

I could list hundreds of toxins in our drinking water including our ground water. This is just one of them.

Synergistic Illness.

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

Mitochondria regulate our immune response and oxidative stress. Many things can cause mitochondria dysfunction. This can lead to metabolic issues, excess oxidative stress and autoimmunity which can lead to cancer and other chronic illness.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6052888/

As you read this you will come to realize why so many are getting Lyme disease and many other illnesses. Our bodies are under assault by fake science also known as corporate science. The science it is based on has been proven wrong yet they push it as fake. Because of that many have developed chronic illness.  Learning how the immune system really works is the first steps to healing.

There are many things that effect our immune system. The amount of toxins in the body, oxidative stress, infections, vaccine injury, processed foods, GMOs and farm chemicals. How we address immune related issues depends on what caused them and the what health problems we have. For example many things cause inflammation which has a dramatic effect on the immune system. Some things will cause mast cell activation which can cause the body to turn on itself. Most illnesses you will find are an autoimmune issue. Inflammation and oxidative stress are the main contributors to autoimmunity. Immunity does not work like pharmaceutical science states it does. They are either lying or doing some of the worst scientific research in the history of man. If you read how the vaccine producers claim vaccines give immunity you will see the very things they claim help the vaccine give immunity are found to be common in autoimmune disorders. They in some way have come to believe stimulating the very things that cause dysfunction in the immune system would impart immunity. How would disabling the immune system impart immunity? I cannot bring myself to believe they are not aware of those facts. If you read the information believe you will see why vaccine will never work. Our immune system works nothing like the fake corporate science leads people to believe it does.

This is just a partial list of the things that are causing modern day illness. There are many other things like heavy metal, and other toxins. If I get time I will update this.

Oxidative stress contributes to chronic illness and cancer. You will hear it mentioned often. There is a test for oxidative stress. It is the Urinary 8-OHdG test.

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0009898103004534?via%3Dihub

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

They are incorrect about so many things for example they claim genetics cause disease but that is being proven wrong more and more.

http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0154387

They claim antibodies prove immunity but antibodies aren’t even required for immunity.

Autophagy is required to develop immunity but I truly believe it should be to develop a symbiont relationship.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29654322

Now inflammation and autophagy work together but the toxins in vaccines cause inflammation. So this would mean it would cause a dis-regulation of autophagy.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5933864/

Vaccine producers themselves say they need to cause inflammation for the vaccine to be effective. They are effective at producing autoimmunity because of their fake science.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28741088

Now when you read the research it becomes clear allergies and asthma are caused by inflammation. Instead of looking for the cause they try treating the symptoms. My question is why do they not look for the cause? Do they already know it is vaccine injury so dance around it to prevent being exposed? Vaccinations are known to make people more susceptible to getting allergies and asthma. Also sugar causes inflammation which will make us more susceptible to allergies and asthma. Many toxins in our food now days cause inflammation and the ingredients in our foods are based on the honor system. The government expects the manufacturers to self regulate what they put in foods for the most part.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5800381/

Instead of looking for the cause they try treating the symptoms. It is a common theme now days. They dance around the cause of any illness because they know what it is. They also know they will expose powerful people if they try addressing the cause so they go into cover up mode. Treat the symptoms instead of the cause so they do not expose those responsible for the cause.

The whole theory behind vaccinations is severely flawed. They are so flawed that vaccinations have caused diseases to develop that are worse then the ones they are supposedly protecting people from.

They have discovered that adaptive immunity is not how our bodies protect themselves.

Studies like this frustrate me. Cholesterol is an antioxidant, when there is high oxLDL it indicates that there is either a high toxin level, or an infection. These studies seem to over look that even though they know that cholesterol is an antioxidant and an anti-inflammatory. It means the cholesterol is doing it’s job. They are looking at a symptoms instead of looking for the cause. Even lowering inflammation will not get rid of the oxLDL they have to address the cause. It is not the cholesterol making the T cell levels go up but it is the oxLDL because that is telling the body something is wrong.

Vaccinations and autoimmunity.

They shoot toxins and pathogens directly into the blood stream and they still don’t know how the immune system works. There is no valid science surrounding vaccinations. Those who get vaccinated are the figurative lab rats. The government has never research the safety of vaccinations which they are required to do by law. The dangerous impact vaccine have on our health has been well studied and documented. The vaccine manufactures were having to pay so much out for the injuries and death that occurred the government passed a bill to protect them from the harm they do. They are not required to test the vaccines for safety but the government is supposed to. They illegally have never tested them for safety or even tracked their safety record. To keep the vaccine manufactures from going bankrupt they had to setup the vaccine injury compensation fund which pays out millions a year. The government themselves admit that most vaccine injury goes unreported. Most likely because doctors have no training concerning vaccinations. They do not know what is in them or how to identify vaccine injury and probably never will be because much of the major educational institutions are heavily funded by the pharmaceutical companies.

Because vaccinations are based on theories that have been proven wrong they cannot work and will only cause more illness that are more virulent . They cause things that usually help us and do good for the body to become pathogens. I could post hundreds of studies showing that vaccine make pathogens more virulent.

The problem with this study is that it is pretty much invalid. They use folate which is natural interchangeably with folic acid which is man made. The body does not have issues with folate but our bodies only produce a small amount of the hormones needed to break down man made folic acid. The rest goes into our blood stream causing issues with many receptors in the body and it increases our risk for cancer. The environmental factor they are missing in this study is probably that they were using folic acid instead of folate. The way they used the terms interchangeably made it difficult to tell by the study which they really meant. But issues with the folate cycle can cause immune issues. In my opinion it is most likely from high levels of folic acid.

Inflammation

Inflammation is involved in immune dis-regulation. Vaccines are designed to cause inflammation. The types of adjuvants they use can stay in the body for years. Many that irritant to the cells will be there for a very long time. Imagine what this would do to the body over the years.

Studies have shown that negative epigenetic changes we aquire throughout life can be passed to our children. That is why it is important to address them and when possible correct them. In the cause of this cut microbiome we would most likely need to support FUT2 enzymes to get this bacteria to establish. There are bacteria that do that. Obesity is an inflammatory conditon, so it could be considered an autoimmune disorder.

Sulfation and high sulfides.

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.

Symptoms of high sulfites and some possible causes. Nutrients that help reduce them. When we have sulfation issues it can cause high oxalates. I have posted on oxalates.

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.

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.

If you do not address the sulfite issue it can lead to porphyria which comes with many other illnesses. Phenylketonuria which means you get ill if you eat meat or things high in Phenylalanine like potatoes. Pyrrole issues which means you will get ill from fats and not be able to properly absorb them. Most will get indigestion and have gall bladder issues if they have pyrrole issues. If you have either of those read my pophyria post.

This is why I stress the importance of homeostasis and not looking at things as I have to cure or get rid of something. We need sulfur to regulate our blood pressure. If we get our levels too low we could develop high blood pressure.

It also regulates Nrf2 homeostasis. High estrogen activates Nrf2 , which reduces estrogen. When levels reach homeostasis it will shut Nrf2 off. Then when it gets low it will turn Nrf2 on stimulating estrogen production so a working Nrf2 pathway is very important for proper antioxidant function and estrogen homeostasis.

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.

If you have acidosis or alkalosis then you must address the health problems causing them or you will be fighting a battle that is like running on a hamster wheel. I have posted on those.

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.

Many are deficient in magnesium. I remember a doctor telling me it was toxic because it is a form of aluminum. I believed it at the time I was pretty young. I now know better. But I still hear this myth being passed around. It may be why magnesium deficiency is so high now. We cannot detox or heal without it and the body requires quite a bit. It is very hard to overdose on magnesium.

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.

Why it is difficult to detox endotoxin.

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

The good and bad of chelating heavy metals.

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

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

Lipcalin

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

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

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

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

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

Lactoferrin

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Horsweed

 

Conyza Canadensis

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

Leaky Gut, Oxalates and more supplement information.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Healing Leaky Gut

It is very important to

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

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

Healing the Gut

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Biofilms

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Oxalates.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.!!

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.

Plantain Herb

 

 

Plantago Major and Plantago Lanceolata

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

Supplement and Nutrient Information I have accumulated.

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

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

https://diversehealthservices.wordpress.com/2017/03/14/politics-and-nutrition/

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.

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

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

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

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

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.

The body cannot produce bile without it so your detxing abilities will be hindered if your cholesterol is low. High oxLDL is a sign of oxidative stress.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

These should help get the body methylating. When the methylation pathways open the body will start detoxing so you should continue the detox protocols the whole time. This could cause the bladder to become irritated again until the toxin levels are down.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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.

Reducing Cholesterol, LDL is a symptom not a cause.

Cholesterol Dysregulation/High LDL

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Angelica

 

Angelica Archangelica

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

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

Identifying

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.

Smilax

This is not medical advice and should not be taken as such. I am posting this for informational and educational purposes only. If in doubt don’t get to know a plant and it’s safety before using it.

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

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

Velvet Leaf Plant

Abutilon Theophrasti

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

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

Rhus Typhina

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

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

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

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.

There are many health benefits to Evening Primrose. I found making a tea with the roots really helped in healing my gut. The roots are very high in mucilage. I found all parts of the plant to taste almost identical to ginger and even seem to have the same effects at reducing nausea from my herxing. I make teas from just about all parts of the plant and once in a while put the leaves in my salads.

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.

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

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

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

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.
