Written by Lee Stevenson. Sorry I am not the best editor.
There are many myths that have been on the net for quite a while concerning candida, sibo and H Pylori. If you are suffering from them it is a symptom and an indication that other health problems need addressed. It is a case of good gone bad.
Candida and H Pylori are commensal that turn pathogenic when something goes wrong in the body.
First thing we need to mention is that alkalizing actually feeds candida and other unwanted microbes. Also things that cause Candida to go pathogenic can also cause SIBO. So if you have Candida you most likely have SIBO also.
This is a very good article and is very accurate it dispels many candida myths.
These are a very good articles on what triggers candida. When candida turns pathogenic it makes it difficult to absorb magnesium. Also symptoms of candida.
Those with inhibited vitamin D receptors and inhibited citric acid cycle can get kind of stuck in a state of ketosis which can increase the risk of candida turning pathogenic.
Antibiotics, eating GMOs and the high glyphosate levels found in our food is what is causing so many digestive problems now days. The should only be taken if absolutely necessary. Out of all of them glyphosate is one of the worst. So in order to heal one must do their best to avoid these things.
Not only are antibiotics and glyphosate causing gut dysbiosis and candida overgrowth, they are causing other microbes to become very pathogenic.
You have to balance your gut microbiota. To much of one or another can cause problems. Too many of one or another can make you very ill. Many will take the same strains of probiotics daily which will cause them to become out of balance. When this happens a person will become very ill.
Genetically modified foods can actually make our gut microbiome a pesticide factory.
If we get the correct nutrients our gut bacteria will produce non toxic antibiotics for us.
If you feel like you are intoxicated you may need molybdenum because candida and other commensals that turn pathogenic can actually make you become intoxicated. Many feel bad after they eat fruit and believe it is because of the sugar. It is not they have too many bacteria producing these toxins. Vitamin B6 and B12 also help with this.
Those who suffer from this may have lactic acidosis instead of alkalosis. I got to experience the pleasure of both because I over compensated from my lack of research and believing the many myths that are out there about candida. I see many who get on hamster wheels and cannot heal because they believe the myths about candida and sibo.
This is very good information about it but they incorrectly call folate folic acid. Folic acid is man made and very toxic to the body. Folate is natural and very difficult to OD on. It does not take much folic acid to have a negative impact on the body.
We also have to prepare ourselves for candida die off.
Our gut bacteria protect each other and secrete and enzyme that protects them from Reactive Oxygen Species. When the above mentioned causes a loss of those bacteria then the other gut bacteria is defenseless and also dies.
Pau D Arco is good for candida. Also a list of foods that help fight candida.
Burdock root also helps with candida.
Biotin helps with candida.
Candida and SIBO are often mistaken for each other.
Candida and SIBO can increase ammonia levels in the body. Also metabolic issues can cause high ammonia levels which will cause Candida to go from commensal to pathogenic. If this happens H Pylori will go from commensal to pathogenic. You cannot get them to go back to commensal unless you get your ammonia levels down. The PH of the digestive system is supposed to be acidic. High ammonia levels will cause it to become alkaline making it even more difficult to balance our gut microbiome. When our digestive system becomes alkaline it causes our good gut microbes to become reduces and it makes us more prone to bad. Also our sulfur digesting and methane producing become more numerous will start causing problems with our BH4 and CBS pathways. To break the cycle we must support the metabolic pathways effected and reduce our consumption of meat and high sulfur foods for about three months. Once candida turns pathogenic it will actually contribute to the digestive system and even the bladder becoming alkaline which will make it and other bad microbes increase more rapidly.
People believe alkalizing will reduce candida but it will increase it.
This is a good article on breaking down biofilms which many unwanted microbes form to protect themselves.
High ammonia levels damage the brain. It does it in two ways. It damages nerves cells and increases glutamate. Those with high ammonia levels will be sensitive to glutamate and will develop very bad headaches if they consume it.
Zinc, P5P and molybdenum about three times a week can reduce ammonia levels.
Saccharomyces Cereviciae also known as brewers yeast help reduce candida and other bad gut microbes. It cannot live in the body long though so has to be taken until the bad microbes are no longer a problem. It is also known as bakers yeast. People falsely believe yeast and candida are realated. Candida is a fungus brewers yeast or bakers yeast is a bacteria. I do not know why they are calling candida a yeast infection because it is a fungus infection.
Lactobacillus species of bacteria also prevents candida and sibo. If a person is deficient in Lactobacillus they will have difficulty gaining weight.
Bifidobacterium increased the acid levels of our digestive tract which inhibits bad bacteria from growing and help keep our digestive tract acidic. It has been shown to reduce symptoms of irritable bowel disease.
Bifidobacterium Infantis protects us from autoimmune disorders by regulating our T cells. B infantis also helps protect our digestive tract.
Bicarbonate rich mineral water can help reduce ammonia levels. I did not have access to this so I used a tablespoon of sodium bicarbonate in a cup of water about three times a week sometimes more depending on how my ammonia levels were. It worked great for reducing ammonia levels.
Calcium D gluturate helps reduce ammonia, endotoxins and mold toxins. It should only be taken about three times a week because overstimulating glucuronidation can deplete very important enzymes and then we can no longer detox these substances.
Coconut oil helps with candida.
Uva ursi and barberry contain berberine which helps fight many types of infection.
many herbs can help with candida.
This is a good list of herbs but I do not agree with consuming tea tree oil. It can be toxic when consumed.
Yarrow along with it’s pain killing and ability to make a person feel more positive has many antimicrobial and antiparasitic properties.
Beta Glucan can be found in mushrooms and organic oatmeal. It helps fight candida and many other pathogens.
Beta glucans modulate the immune system helping to normalize it. Many pathogens will cause an over active immune response which helps to stealth them from the immune system. This helps to enhance the immune response to a pathogen. I have posted on beta glucan if you want to learn more.
Apple cider vinegar is good for fighting candida and many other infections but it is high histamine so those with allergies and mast cell degranulation will have problems with it and other high histamine food that help like yogurt.
Those suffering from this will develop higher ammonia levels when they eat meat. Branched chain amino acids may be a good alternative for a source of protein. You must make sure they do not contain phenylalanine. Phenylalanine increases ammonia levels in the body when we have CBS or BH4 issues. Meat and potatoes are high in phenylalanine.
Nutrients needed when fighting candida.
Candida can cause sugar cravings.
Omega 3 is needed but Omega 6 must be avoided to prevent endotoxemia.
I had difficulty eating fruit. Probiotic yeast helped correct that.
This is why it is very important to get polyphenols, oligosaccharides and polysaccharides in our diets. It feeds our beneficial bacteria which promotes better health. There are myths about the sugars in foods like fruits and vegetables feeding candida when it becomes pathogenic but the opposite is true. Much of the false information out there drives me to believe that the pharmaceutical companies put it out there to keep people on a hamster wheel of poor health so they will have a steady customer. If we lack certain microbiota we may have to introduce foods slowly and increase our intake as the microbes start increasing. It can take months for some to get back to normal levels.
Not only do we need to feed the good gut bacteria but our diets to manipulate our gut bacteria needs to be unique to each of us. A diverse diet gives us a diverse microbiome which protects our health.
The myth I see that is the most damaging is people being told to avoid all fats. They are a necessary nutrient for good health.
Another myth is to avoid carbohydrates. It is a good way to develop autoimmune disease. We need a variety in our diet.
These are the probiotics that help me with my dairy issues.
If your microbiome imbalance persist it may be from your sexual partner.
We need H Pylori to prevent allergies and asthma so we do not want to kill it we want to get it back to commensal by reducing our ammonia levels.

Vaccine injury, Lyme disease and chronic illness from the BT Toxins and glyophosate used in GMOs are the most common forms of chronic illness now days but Lyme sufferers are the most looked down on and most discriminated against. As they judge us they also will be judged on Gods great day.
(Matthew 7:1-5) 7 “Stop judging that you may not be judged; 2 for with the judgment you are judging, you will be judged, and with the measure that you are measuring out, they will measure out to you. 3 Why, then, do you look at the straw in your brother’s eye but do not notice the rafter in your own eye? 4 Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Allow me to remove the straw from your eye,’ when look! a rafter is in your own eye? 5 Hypocrite! First remove the rafter from your own eye, and then you will see clearly how to remove the straw from your brother’s eye.
Lyme needs systematic inflammation to take out the immune system. Our environment and food is so toxic that it is causing systematic inflammation in people. The OspA is a funfal antigen that is used in bioweapons, vaccinations and many pathogens have somehow developed the ability to produce a variety of outer surface proteins that are similar to the OspA fungal antigen. My question is how did they suddenly develop this ability? Now add this with the well known fact vaccinations also cause systematic inflammation and you can see why so many are developing chronic illness from tick born disease. Ask yourself what has changed to cause so much chronic illness now days? Now I am going to describe what I experienced.
Fortunately we have Carl Tuttle on our side and his pursuit of justice and fairness is relentless. He does not let up. I am glad he is on our side and not theirs. I would not want to be on the opposing side of him. He is thorough with his research and knows what he is talking about. He has been amazing. Those suffering from mysterious illness that they cannot explain should read this. This is a medical professional describing her experience in getting diagnosed and treated for Lyme disease.
If you do not have Lyme you are one insaect bite, or one sexual partner away from your life being destroy. There are many methods Lyme can be transmitted. You can carry it for decades then one vaccination, too many GMOs or too many toxins and you will experience what this medical professional did. They first try to prescribe Psych meds. Then they ignore you and tell you not to come back to their office you have to jump from one doctor to another and all of them will do the same exact things. This woman had a lacerated meniscus and swollen knee. This was my first symptoms and happened exactly like it happened to her only when they went in to repair my meniscus they discovered weird calcium deposits on my muscles and ligaments. they removed them and my muscle spasms went away for a while and I could use my leg. Then slowly this started happening throughout my body.
Then over the years different joints including my fingers would swell and get very sore. They told me I had gout or arthritis. All doctors had the same reactions when the test come back negative for both. So their next reaction was because I believe something was wrong with my body I was imagining things and it was causing my body to react this way. So again they tried to prescribe me psych meds. Then just before I become bedridden many of my joints started developing cyst around them including my fingers and toes. The pain was beyond anything I could describe. I finally found a doctor who know immediately what it was but said I was so ill that giving me antibiotics my kill me. I thought she forgot about me because I laid for four months. My Facebook friends were teaching me how to heal and I was slowly getting better. Then my new doctor called said she finally found someone who knew how to treat someone who was as ill as I was.
It took me so long to get treated that it destroyed my health, I lost my job and you will be denied disability if you get Lyme. I have watched Lyme sufferers starve to death and become homeless because most peoples family will not research things but will believe the false narratives surrounding Lyme so they offer no help and actually do things to try and force use into doing things we are not capable of doing. I lost everything I had even my tools. To eat and to get medical treatment I had to sell everything I had. There are many Lyme suffers Laying bedridden right now with family that will not help them and treat them horrible because of the false narratives out there.
God does not accept ignorance as an excuse when the truth is easily available so all those involved, even those who choose to remain ignorant neglect those suffering will be held accountable on Jehovah’s great day.
I have covered why many die before getting diagnosed with Lyme in another blog post.
This is why there cannot be a real Lyme test.
Ticks are not the only methods of Lyme transmission other biting insects can transmit it. It can be transmitted from mother to child, It can also be transmitted sexually. Many who have gotten Lyme do not remember getting bitten by a tick because most likely they were not bitten by a tick but became infected through other means.
God sees what they are doing and will hold them accountable.
Jeremiah 8:“How can you say, ‘We are wise, and the law of the Lord is with us’? But behold, the lying pen of the scribes has made it into a lie.
9 The wise men shall be put to shame;they shall be dismayed and taken; behold, they have rejected the word of the Lord,
so what wisdom is in them?
10 Therefore I will give their wives to others
and their fields to conquerors,because from the least to the greatest everyone is greedy for unjust gain; from prophet to priest,everyone deals falsely.
11 They have healed the wound of my people lightly,
saying, ‘Peace, peace,’when there is no peace.
12 Were they ashamed when they committed abomination?
No, they were not at all ashamed;they did not know how to blush.
Therefore they shall fall among the fallen;
when I punish them, they shall be overthrown,says the Lord.
13 and shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as those who count it pleasure to revel in the daytime. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceptions while they feast with you,
Proverbs 21:He who shuts his ear to the cry of the poor Will also cry himself and not be answered.
Micah 3:4 Then they will cry out to the LORD, But He will not answer them Instead, He will hide His face from them at that time Because they have practiced evil deeds.
(Psalm 12:5) 5 “Because the afflicted are oppressed, Because of the sighing of the poor, I will rise up to act,” says Jehovah. “I will save them from those who treat them with contempt. . .
(Proverbs 28:24-27) 24 Whoever robs his father and mother and says, “It is not wrong,” Is a partner of the man who causes ruin. 25 The greedy person stirs up dissension, But whoever relies on Jehovah will prosper. 26 Whoever trusts in his own heart is stupid, But the one who walks in wisdom will escape. 27 Whoever gives to the poor will lack nothing, But the one who closes his eyes to them will receive many curses.
Written by Lee Stevenson not edited though. To tired to edit it.
This is not medical advice I am posting this for educational and informational purposes.
Inflammation does serve a purpose. It is involved in healing and immune response in the body. But excess inflammation can lead to chronic illness, immune dysfuction, and mental illness. Inflammation and nutrient deficiencies can lead to infection which cause and add to the inflammation and immune dysfunction. Imbalance in B or T cells can cause chronic inflammation, chronic inflammation can cause an imbalance in B and T cells. They are tightly connected to each other. I posted on autoimmunity with information on balancing the immune system. Reducing inflammation is also important to maintain homeostasis if we are chronically ill.
There are many types of cytokines in the body and many types of inflammation. If the cause is not addressed it can lead to chronic illness, autoimmunity and chronic pain. Inflammation disables the immune system and many metabolic pathways needed to heal. It can cause us to become prone to infection from microbes that are usually beneficial to the body. Inflammation can lead to cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer and death.
T Cell imbalance and inflammation are the commonality in autoimmune diseases this includes interstitial cystitis, arthritis, hardening of the arteries, obesity, lupus the list goes on and on. You must restore balance to the immune system and reduce inflammation to heal.
If you have sulfation issues or problems with lipid metabolism you cannot heal you need to get them straightened out. Most things I mention I have posted information on things that will help correct them. If we have issues with lipid metabolism then our bodies cannot use cholesterol effectively which effects the function of the brain, heart and digestion. This is a good video with information on their importance.
These are my summarized note on metabolic issues. They have to be addressed in order to achieve homeostasis. Many of these issues I posted more detail in other post.
I will mention things that heal the gut but I covered it in more detail in this blog post.
Many will take vitamin D3 to reduce inflammation but this can in some instances make things worse. Excess levels of vitamin D can cause high blood calcium levels which can result in oxalate formation. Those who have sarcoidosis which is an inflammatory disease that effects the organs have high levels of vitamin D3. I have seen many develop this when they have gotten and infection. This leads me to believe there are issue with the vitamin D receptor because problems with the vitamin D receptor will make us prone to illness. Those with sarcoidosis should avoid vitamin D until they get the issues causing the high vitamin D levels resolved. This is caused by upregulation of Cyp27b1 enzyme , the high levels of vitamin D inhibit the vitamin D receptor. This results in vitamin D binding to the Pregnane X receptor. This causes bile to be metabolized quicker reducing the amount of bile produced, this also causes issues with lipid metabolism resulting in lipid accumulation in the liver. Many of the symptoms caused by this are common in those with inflammatory bowel diseases. Make me believe there is a common tie. Maintaining our vitamin D levels is important but those with sarcoidosis probably should not take vitamin D3 but if they supplement it should be regular vitamin D like what is found in fish oil.
Vitamin D supplementation did not seem to have any benefits in those with sarcoidosis.
Vitamin A protects against vitamin D toxicity.
Leaky gut and inhibited bile production can lead to food intolerances. I posted on correcting these. Food intolerances cause inflammation and autoimmunity if not corrected.
We need to ask ourselves why food sensitivities, food intolerances , gluten intolerance, gliaden intolerance and many other problems that used to be rare are now very common? What is causing the epidemic?
Antibiotics have been linked to causing all those illnesses and you will see in this post how. Fluoroquinolone is one of the most dangerous antibiotic of all there are people who have been permanently disabled by fluroquinolones. The inflammation they cause to the body and damage is very very difficult to repair. If we do something reckless that cost people their lives we would go to jail. The pharmaceutical industry is frequently falsifying data, ghost writing studies and even paying people to lie about their products safety. The government has often times been caught colluding with the pharmaceutical industry to hide the harm they do. Why the double standard? Why is no one held accountable for the harm they do? Often times their drugs are what sets people up for chronic illness.
This is an example of a bad article. The advice may seem good but they mention spinach which if not cooked it will cause inflammatin because it is high oxalate. It needs to be boiled and the water dumped to reduce oxalates. It recommends fermented foods. Fermented foods are high histamine and if a person dealing with inflammation or high histamines eat fermented foods it will cause inflammation instead of reduce it. They also recommend high sulfur foods which normally would be very healthy but those with sulfation issues or gut dysbiosis who have high levels of sulfur digesting bacteria will become sicker and develop inflammation and high oxidative stress levels. I have posted on oxidative stress, and sulfation. Oxidative stress causes inflammation and can lead to cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
Increasing T regulatory cells helps with type 1 diabetes. Our gut microbiome regulate our T regulatory cell levels. I have posted on how to increase them. They regulate the health of our whole bodies even our bone health. I have posted throughout my blog on our microbiota and how each one effects our health. T regulatory cells prevent autoimmunity and excessive inflammation.
If we do not address our gut imbalance it can lead to B cell lymphoma. We need to increase the microbiome that reduce inflammation and oxidative stress. I posted on other post which ones accomplish that.
High resistin is blamed for causing diabetes type 2 and cardiovascular disease. Infection, leaky gut and oxidative stress can cause high resistin levels. It is usually an issue in the gut. It can also be caused by zinc deficiency. A person with zinc deficiencies will have a poor sense of taste or smell, a poor appetite, experience weight loss, whites spots on finger nails and night blindness. High resistin levels is actually a symptom not the cause but just like most allopathic medicine they view the symptom as the cause. Resistin helps protect the body from endotoxins. High levels indicate leaky gut or infection. Zinc deficiency also causes high TH17 levels which is common in lupus and other autoimmune diseases. High levels of endotoxins damage the brain.
Endotoxemia which can be caused by leaky gut or infection which causes high resistin levels. This leads to insulin resistance.
Endotoxins cause the blood brain barrier to become porous.
High endotoxins cause the body to release inflammasomes which activate Gasdermin. Gasdermin causes pyropoptoses. Instead of the cell dying in the normal way through apotosis which give the body a chance to clear the debris out with pyropoptose the cell erupts spewing material out. If this occurs enough times the body cannot keep up with the process of cleaning debris out and metabolic pathways can become blocked and it can add to the inflammation and toxic burden in the body. It is believed this occurs to control infection. This shows why it is important to heal leaky gut and to get our lipopolysaccharide levels down and reduce inflammasomes. Stimulating autophagy helps reduce inflammasomes. Mitochondrial dysfunction and damage can also activate inflammasome so glyphosate and many drugs especially fluorquinolones can cause this to occur. Arglabia found in species of artemisia inhibit inflammasomes. Resveratrol inhibits inflammasomes. Activating CB2 receptor reduces inflammasomes. I posted on plants that contain cannabinoids that activate CB2.
Since resistin protects us and if you read my post on cholesterol you will see it also protects us, what does allopathic medicine do. They see the resistin as something that needs reduced which would further add to the health problems but that is ok they will find a drug to treat those symptoms also. Allopathic medicine is not about treating the cause but about treating the symptoms. Here is an example here. Resistin protects from the damage of endotoxins and also from the damage statins do. Their solution try to find a way to reduce resistin. Oh great just what a person needs even more health problems.
Nutrient deficiencies can cause oxidative stress and inflammation.
There are many things that cause inflammation and metabolic issues. This results in mold sensitivity. If you are sensitive to mold it is a symptom not the cause. Most mold the body can detox easily until something goes wrong. There are molds that are dangerous but you would have to breath large quantities of them in directly. The white mold that grows on rotting wood that looks like a spider web is one of those molds. Glucuronidation and sulfation are not mentioned in this article but if they are inhibited they also can cause a person to be sensitive to mold. We have to ask ourselves people have lived around mold for centuries and it did not cause problems before. What has changed? Our environment and food is now toxic. Vaccinations damage the body. Our bodies are being pushed to the max when it comes to detoxing.
In the U.S. over farming and the use of glyphosate has cause nutrient deficiencies. Over farming depletes minerals from the soils. Glyphosate chelates minerals from the soil and is high in our food supply and chelates minerals from our bodies and kill many of our beneficial microbes in our gut. Our microbes produce some of the vitamins we need especially the B vitamins. Heavy antibiotic use can cause us to become deficient in B vitamins from the loss of our microbiome that produce the B vitamins for us. They have started fortifying our food to compensate for the loss of nutrients. The problem is they use a type of iron that the body cannot easily use, many have toxic levels of iron in their bodies now which causes excess oxidative stress and inflammation. They also fortify our food with folic acid which is man made and toxic to the body. Folate is natural but many do not know the difference including many medical professionals. I have even seen research papers incorrectly interchange the use the words folate and folic acid. High levels of folic acid causes cancer and damages the brain. High levels of folate the natural vitamin prevents cancer and protects the brain. Knotgrass increase lipocalin 2 which helps to restore iron homeostasis. Lactoferrin also helps restore iron homeostasis. Lipocalin can be low in malabsorption but is high during infection.
Processed sugar has been found to cause inflammation that can lead to obesity and heart disease. Fructose is much worse then sugar. But when I looked at studies on those products in their natural forms they did not have ill effects. So apparently our bodies were not meant to have them in purified forms. It doesn’t help that most sugar and fructose is made from GMOs and can contain glyphosate.
GMOs alone even without glyphosate has been found to cause gut inflammation.
Our gut microbiota modulate our immune system and are important for the health of all organs including our brain. I have covered it in more detail in other blog post. It is very important to figure out which ones we are lacking and replace them.
The cannabinoid system is important in maintaining our bodies health. Our gut microbiome modulate it. There are many plants that contain them I have posted on cannabinoids.
The omega 3 to omega 6 ratio can effect our cannabinoid system. In the U.S. we consume to much Omega 6 . When Omega 6 levels become higher then Omega 3 levels it can have a negative impact on the cannabinoid system.
This is good information on Omega 3 oil.
Many spices reduce oxidative stress and when cooked with they reduce toxins produced during cooking. This helps prevent inflammation.
If the NRF2 pathway is blocked or over activated it can lead to excess oxidative stress. I discuss it in my post on oxidative stress. Activating it can reduce oxidative stress but we do not want to over activate it.
Mental stresss makes the gut more permeable. This can lead to endotoxemia resembling an infection.This leads to chronic inflammation.
Many spices help reduce oxidative stress and inflammation.
Using spices when we cook helps prevent the toxins that can be produced while cooking.
Our food has become very toxic now days if you read my post on GMOs and what they do to the body it is unbelievable they let them feed us those things. Not only that but the additives they put in foods are toxic to our bodies. Something as simple as Ramen noodles are very bad for our health.
Too many oxalates can cause chronic illness. High oxalates can irritate the bladder and run the liver, kidneys, gallbladder and cause urinary and vaginal irritation.
Symptoms of high oxalates.
Oxalates can also cause us to become sensitive to phenols the very nutrients we need to reduce inflammation will now make us ill. They inhibit sulfation which can cause phenols to build up in our bodies. Glyphosate, mercury and vaccine injury can also cause inhibited sulfation. I have posted on correcting sulfation.
To add insult to injury oxalates can cause kidney stones and gallstones one their own. They also cause inflammation which can inhibited bile flow and cause problems in the gallbladder which can lead to gall stones. Bile is involved in cholesterol homeostasis so when it because inhibited cholesterol and fats in the body become dis-regulated. When bile is inhibited it breaks the balance of the gut up and will cause an imbalance in our gut bacteria leading to dysbiosis or inflammatory bowel diseases.
Vasoactive intestinal peptide is usually low in those who have malabsorption issues from inflammatory bowel. When low a person will have difficulty gaining weight.
Hypoxia can reduce the symptoms of inflammatory bowel diseases.
When lipids become dis-regulated it can cause an increase in eicosanoids which are inflammatory. When this happens healthy oils like Omega 3s become inflammatory and Omega 6 will cause inflammation. So we must address metabolic issues that will interfere with the proper metabolism of fats to reap the benefits of fats. Cod liver oil works very good for reduing eicosanoid type inflammation. I get cod liver oil that has lemon juice which will keep it from oxidizing. Cod liver oil is also good for the brain.
Those with inflammatory bowel should avoid saturated fat until they heal. When we have systematic inflammation we need to adjust our diets. Medium chain fatty acids work best when we have inflammatory bowel issues or malabsorption issues.
A mistake many make when they have chronic inflammation is they will take high dose vitamin C which increases inflammation when taken at high doses. Also high dose vitamin C causes anemia because it breaks red blood cells down and depletes certain minerals from the body.
Luteolin helps with inflammatory diseases. It has been shown to prevent diabetes and heart disease. It is high in cooked tomato skin. It is also found in thyme, watercress, citrus fruits, celery, green peppers, and chamomille tea. It is one of the most potent anti-inflammatory and is very potent at reducing oxidative stress.
This is a list of foods high in luteolin.
If inflammation is not addressed it will lead to chronic fatigue syndrome.
I have posted on resolving issues with fat metabolism. Fat is very important for protection from inflammation and infection.
This is a list of spices that reduce inflammation. Out of all of them I feel celery, sage, oregano oil and vanilla helped me the most.
Liver X receptor regulates cholesterol homeostasis which is very important in the regulation of inflammation and preventing infection.
Excess NOD2 causes inflammation and can damage the renal system. Infection, and leaky gut can cause high NOD2 levels. This increases inflammation in the intestinal tract leading to inflammatory bowel. Our gut bacteria modulate NOD2. NOD2 recognizes our gut microbiome and will not harm it. Excess inflammation can interfere with toll like receptors which can prevent NOD2 from being able to recognize our good gut microbiome. There are gut microbiome that stimulate IL-12 a loss of these microbiome causes a loss of the ability for NOD2 to recognize our good microbiome. Many metabolic issues can interfere with the proper function of NOD.
Infection can inhibit NOD2 especially mycoplasma infection.
I have posted on Heat Shock Protein 70. HSP70 stabilizes NOD2.
HSP is modulated by diet and our gut microbiota.
Excess inflammation and excess lipopolysaccharide can inhibit NcoR and SMRT which are the checkpoints for appropriate inflammatory and anti-inflammatory response. I have posted on edotoxemia it is very important to get endotoxins levels down.
There are many causes of excess inflammation . The major ones now days is vaccinations and farm chemicals in our foods, especially glyphosate, bt toxins found in GMOs also cause inflammation.
Many illnesses have been linked to inflammation inflammatory bowel diseases, autoimmune diseases, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and many metabolic diseases. Many things that contain the OspA cause inflammation and the OspA disables the immune system. The only way the body can remove the OspA proteins is through autophagy, using and the Heat Shock Protein 70. Inflammation can inhibit those. Many vaccines contain the OspA along with some mycoplasmas, tick born illnesses, EBV and some molds contain it.
Lupus is caused by a type of inflammation. Ironic it is caused by the same type of inflammation that vaccinations and glyphosate cause. Arthritis has been linked to vaccinations.
Arthritis is an autoimmune disorder, vaccines cause autoimmunity awful coincidence. Vaccinations can cause a B cell imbalance that alters our gut microbiome, so can antibiotics and glyphosate.
A list of foods that may help with arthritis.
This is a list of herbs that help with arthritis and why they work. Green Tea inhibits many inflammatory cytokine but should be used in moderation. Drinking it in excess can damage the liver. Curcumin reduces many types of inflammatory cytokines but should be used in moderation it chelates iron and can cause anemia. Resveratrol found in grape skins, wine and grape seed extract reduce many types of inflammatory cytokines but those with hepatitis have to be careful it can activate hepatitis.
Paeonia helps with arthritis.
Thungergod vine helps with many forms of inflammatory illnesses but can irritate the stomach and have effects on hormones in the body.
Inulin and oligofructose reduces many types of inflammation by increasing bifidobacteria. Those with dysbiosis have to ease into things like this and slowly increase intake as their gut microbiome increase that digest this type of fiber. It takes about 3 months for most types of gut microbes to get fully established. If our gut bacteria are not established then we can get severe bloating and gas from consuming too much. Also in order to get our gut bacteria balanced we need a variety of foods in order to get them balanced. Over consumption of inulin and oligofrutose can also cause dysbiosis by increasing levels of inulin and oligofructose microbes to high causing an imbalance in our microbiome. An imbalance in our gut microbiome causes allergies, inflammation, food intolerances, and autoimmunity.
I have listed in other blog post on the microbiome that protect us from inflammation, from autoimmunity and from infection. They also modulate our genes and keep our organs throughout the body healthy and communicate with various parts of the body and even teach the immune system how to fight infection.
Notice vaccines increase inflammatory cytokines for quite some time.
Those with inflammatory bowel diseases are usually low in interleukin 10 and T regulatory cells. I have posted which gut microbes increase those.
An imbalance in our gut microbiome cause metabolic issues which lead to inflammatory diseases. I have posted on how to balance the gut microbiome.
Statins also cause diabetes by there inflammatory effects on the body.
Good information for reducing intestinal inflammation. I have a list of probiotics on one of my post that says which microbes reduce inflammation. Many sites are not accurate and some strains they mention actually increase inflammation.
This is a very good article explaining the inflammatory process when we have an infection.
Heart disease is caused by endothelial dysfunction which is a result of excess oxidative stress, toxins, excess inflammation and even poor lifestyle choices.
Inflammation and diabetes.
Inflammation and pain.
Infection indicates a health problem. Usually a nutrient deficiency. Infection can cause chronic inflammton.
Vaccinations cause systematic inflammation which causes neurological damage.
Since we know vaccinations cause inflammation that can damage the brain imagine what is happening to an infant when an expecting mother gets vaccinated.
Brain inflammation has been linked to most mental diseases including alzheimer’s. Mugwort, coconut oil and astaxanthin have been shown to help with brain inflammation. They also stimulate brain repair.
When chronic inflammation persist it can make the brain prone to infection. Lyme has been known to form cyst in the body and can damage the brain by forming cyst on it. Lyme causes systematic inflammation it is part of it’s tactic for evading the immune system.
Inflammation causes high glutamate levels which will cause restless leg syndrome and difficulty sleeping. When glutamate levels get too high it will feel like your skull is going to split in half. To restore normal glutamate levels we must address the metabolic issues causing it and reduce inflammatin.
If inflammation persist it can effect enzymes in the body leading to neurological damage.
Skin inflammation is usually a sign of high TH17 levels. I have posted on autoimmunity and it should cover information concerning high TH17 levels.
Lipoxins are very important for reducing inflammation so it is very important to support their function. Lipoxins cannot remove inflammation until the cause of the inflammation has been removed. If we have metabolic issues or issues in fat metabolism the body cannot produce lipoxins which will increase inflammation. Lions Mane mushroom increases lipoxin. Low lipoxin levels cause asthma and allergies. Consuming Omega 3 and medium chain fatty acids increases lipoxins.
There are many naturals that help with inflammation but they have to be geared towards the type of inflammation and also the cause. For example Golden Rod helps with swelling in the feet and legs and high blood pressure. Golden Rod also has antispasmodic effects which also helps with bladder and muscle pain. It also has antimicrobial effects. It also helps reduce many of the inflammatory markers found in interstitial cystitis. There are a variety of species but they are mostly chemically very similar.
Stimulating the vagus nerve helps to reduce inflammation and pain.the health of the vagus nerve is very important it can even effect our heart and contribute to obesity and fatty liver disease.
Cholesterol is needed to prevent inflammation.
Pau D Arco is an all around amazing herb. It fights candida, inflammation, mycoplasma you name it. It even helps heal stomach ulcers.
Proteolytic enzymes help break down food and reduce inflammation, they help the gut heal. There are plant sources for those not producing them.
5-Lox inhibitors help with illnesses caused by high eicosanoids like asthma and allergies. Caffeic acid inhibits 5-Lox, it can be found in coffee, thyme, basil, cinnamon, star anise, red wine, black chokeberry, barley, rye and apricots. Lichen inhibits 5-lox with cetetia monachrom being the most potent. Tithonia Diversifolia and Viguiera Robust inhibit 5-Lox and Cox-1 which would help with those who have systematic inflammation.
If excess oxidative stress and inflammation and the things causing them are not addressed it leads to neurological damage. Vaccinations, glyphosate and other farm chemicals that are high in our food supply cause systematic inflammation. Heavy metal also causes systematic inflammation. I have posted on detoxing which helps reduce their effects.
One thing found to be common in obesity is low grade inflammation.
Vaccine inserts will state that brain inflammation is a side effect of the vaccine. They no longer call it autism because vaccines cause many types of brain injury so they us a blanket term encephalopathy to cover a variety of brain injuries vaccinations cause. Tylenol also causes brain inflammation and liver damage because it depletes glutathione so it enhances the inflammatory effects of vaccines. Two things all with autism have in common are brain inflammation (encephalopathy) and autoimmunity. Both things vaccinations and glyphosate have been shown to cause.
Many do not realize that their chronic fatigue (ASIA syndrome), lupus or allergies are actually vaccine injury because the CDC says that only 10% of vaccine injuries get reported but many medical professionals claim that number is much lower. I have posted on identifying vaccine injury because it is usually subtle or brushed of by the medical community. It is up to the parent of the injured child to report vaccine injury or the person who is injured. If you do not keep accurate medical history and medical journals your chances of being compensated for vaccine injury or death is very slim.
N-acetylcysteine helps with damage from tylenol. High stress and high cortisol levels also have a negative impact on BHMT enzymes.
Encephalitis and autism is the same thing. They relabeled autism encephalopathy in order to cover a broader spectrum of brain injuries caused by vaccines and farm chemicals.
Many vaccines contain aluminum which is known to be toxic to the body and it is very difficult for the body to remove it especially once it enters the brain. It has been linked to autism.
If the brain inflammation persist long enough it can result in mental disorders.
When mast cells degranulate they release histamines. Excess histamines cause inflammation. If the immune system is not balanced it could lead into mastocytosis or mast cell activation syndrome. High mast cell levels cause allergies, inflammation, asthma and man other illnesses. We need mast cells to clean up the body but over expression can cause illness.
Mast cells are needed for health but excess and excess degranulation can damage nerves.
Histamines compromise the blood brain barrier causing the brain to become even more inflamed. It also leaves the brain open to toxins and infection.
Some may be helped with a low histamine diet. I have posted on autoimmunity and some tips for some things that will help.
This is why high homocysteine levels lead to inflammatory diseases , it has also been linked to IBD. Often times it is nutrient deficiencies that causes high homocysteine levels. Eating more raw fruit, vegetables and leafy greens can help reduce high homocysteine levels. Also if a person is deficient in B12 which is produced by our gut microbiome and B6 they will develop high homocysteine levels. High homocysteine levels can lead to cardiovascular disease, insulin resistance, excess oxidative stress., issues with glutamate because it acts on the NMDA receptor, it can cause the blood brain barrier to become leaky, and can lead to depression. It can cause hoshimoto’s disease, arthritis, psoriasis, lupus which all indicate high TH17 levels. High homocysteine causes headaches, inflammation in the gums and mouth. Www.selfhacked.com is one of the most accurate websites I have found when it comes to healing and health related information.
I am not big on drugs because the pharmaceutical industry and even our own government has shown they can not be trusted when it comes to drug safety. They have often times caused many death from marketing drugs that they falsely claimed to research for safety and the government has many times been caught colluding with them to hide the harm being done. But Ebselem is one drug I have seen many independent studies showing it’s effectiveness at reducing oxidative stress, inflammatory disease and reversing autoimmunity. Unfortunately most governments only allow it to be prescribed to those who are mentally ill.
Vaccinations, heavy metals, stress, toxins, farm chemicals in our food, gut dysbiosis, glyphosate and glufonisate increases zonulin levels which causes leaky gut. This results in autoimmunity, allergies and food intolerances which leads to systematic inflammation. There are test that can help identify leaky gut. It is not always obvious when someone has leaky gut. High zonulin levels also cause interstitial cystitis and a leaky blood brain barrier.
high zonulin levels have been linked to leaky gut.
Almost all chronic illness can be linked to our gut microbiome.
Many with inflammatory bowel diseases and chronic illness have been shown to be deficient in Clostridium Leptum. Has been shown to help with asthma and allergies.
Vitamin B6 helps reduces brain inflammation. Some who are not converting B6 may have to use the bioavailable form P5P.
Disruption of lysosomes can lead to inflammatory disease. I have posted on things that may help with lysosomal issues.
Poshpolipase A2 activates during infection. Citroline helps reduce inflammation caused by PLA2. It should not be used often because the body recycles it and if we get too much it can start damaging the liver.
Our Liver X Receptor is important for homeostasis of the immunes system and in preventing inflammation.
Yarrow reduces inflammation in the digestive tract. It also give energy without the side effects of caffeine. It also helps with asthma.
There are many toxins in our food and enviroment that cause inflammation. If we do not detox them and leave the inflammation continue then it can lead to autoimmunity and cancer. Oxidative stress causes inflammation so the source of the oxidative stress needs address, treating the inflammation would only be treating the symptoms. Cancer is a symptom of illness but not the cause, it is a symptom of an underlying illness. I have also posted on cancer in more detail.
Tea tree oil works great for reducing histamines, and substance P in the skin. It reduces inflammation and has great disinfectant properties. It is too strong to use straight. I found adding about 5 drops to 8 ounces of Jojoba oil worked great. Jojoba oil stimulates hair growth and reduces inflammation. It also will disinfect , it even kills fungus.
Infection causes inflammation, if systematic inflammation is not addressed it can lead to interstitial cystitis. It is very difficult to recover from. I am in remission with no help from allopathic medicine they just made things worse. They will try and prescribe you psych meds and tell you it is in your head like they do with Lyme disease. There are two things I have seen common in the many types of interstitial cystitis. Leaky gut or digestive issues and high inflammatory cytokines. High substance P levels have been found in some types of asthma , autoimmunity and all with interstitial cystitis have high substance P levels. I have posted on substance P. It is a sign of leaky gut or gut dysbiosis.
Often times with IC it is hormone imbalance that causes the inflammation.
Infection causes issues with tryptophan this can lead to both malabsorption and interstitial cystitis. I have seen people go years with undetected infections because it was tick born illness and they always over look it. As a matter of fact some studies claim up to 80% of those with interstitial cystitis may have tick born illness that is going undetected. Tick born illness is not what it should be called though because most illnesses ticks transmit can be transmitted by biting insects including Lyme disease. When this happens a person may become sicker when increasing tryptophan levels in their bodies. They must address the cause first. I have posted on healing interstitial cystitis.
Our adrenaline levels can effect our bodies causing inflammation and autoimmunity. Adaptogens like suma root or maca root usually help with that.
If you do not have porphyria then Omega 3 fatty acids will reduce inflammation in the bladder. If you have porphyria, which pyrrole issues are some of the first symptoms then all oils except medium chain fatty acids will cause you inflammation. Also if your Omega 6 levels get higher then Omega 3 then instead of reducing inflammation Omega 6 will cause inflammation.
Transfats cause inflammation and can lead to cardiovascular disease. I have posted on the myths about fat.
There are a lot of farm chemicals in our food. PON1 is needed to detox them. Inflammation inhibits PON1. Reducing inflammation will help with detoxing. Sumac helps to stimulate PON1. Dandelion stimulates DIG1 which detoxes the body. Alternating between them should help to detox.
Fats which are needed by almost all cells of the body can make inflammation worse if a person has pyrrole issues. If a person has pyrrole issues it is a symptom of a bigger problem porphyria. They will get ill from consuming oils. Medium chain fatty acids is all they should consume until they have addressed it. I have posted on porphyria.
It is very important to address issues with fat metabolism. Omega 3s are needed to reduce inflammation.
Milk thistle is one of the best for reducing inflammation and detoxing. It inhibits many inflammatory pathways.
Thiocyanate is used by the bodies antioxidant system. A deficiency causes cause cystic fibrosis. Excess can cause hypothyroidism so should be avoided by those who have hypothyroidism. It also helps with sickle cell anemia.
It is found in cassava, legumes, beans, grains, many root vegetables.
St. Johnswort reduces inflammation and oxidative stress. It has a cannabinoid in it that that causes relaxation. The best way I know how to describe it is that it gives you that feeling you get when you are fighting sleep as a child and you get giggly.
Chlorophyll helped me a lot. It is high in copper so should only be used a few times a week , I used it about three times a week. It is also a good source of magnesium and increases oxygen levels in the blood.
If a person gets mast cell activation syndrome from Lyme there are a number of things people have tried. Supplements worked best for me. I have covered this in my autoimmunity post. When mast cells degranulate they cause high histamines which cause inflammation. It is very important to get them under control and restore homeostasis. We need some histamines to fight infection and for digestion so we do not want to over do it.
When I was very ill my skin started to lose it’s color . When it is low the immune system will become imbalanced and we will develop inflammation throughout the body. On the other end of the scale those who have chronic fatigue syndrome have excess a-MSH. If levels are high a person will not have an appetite.
Nitric Oxide can be beneficial or cause inflammation. Under excess oxidative stress it can become depleted causing high blood pressure or over produced during infection causing low blood pressure. I have posted on nitrositive stress.
Butyric Acid is great for reducing inflammation throughout the body including the brain. It also helps protect and heal the brain. It is found in butter and ghee, also some of our gut microbiome produce it. If we lose our gut microbiota that produce butyric acid we can develop inflammatory bowel or ulcerative colitis.
Also our gut microbiota communicate with our brain , a deficiency in certain microbiota could lead to mental illness.
If we have leaky gut or tick born illness we can develop high substance P levels. This can cause cell build up in various areas of the body and can block the renal system , blood flow, it can cause brain swelling. When levels get high the skin will burn especially in the scalp and down the spin. The burning with increase at night and can also itch. Substance P levels increase at night. Substance P is used by the body to stimulate healing in the body. Excess substance P can cause excess bone marrow to be produced. I have posted on how to reduce it. When it gets very high brown spots may develop around the hair follicles. Nutrient deficiencies can also cause high substance P levels especially magnesium. This is also why many have leaky gut now days because high substance P levels cause leaky gut. Over farming and the use of glyphosate has caused many to become deficient in magnesium. If high substance P levels are not addressed it can lead to pancreatic damage and even cancer. If substance P levels get high enough it can feel like bugs crawling under and on the skin, I experienced that. I also experienced butt itching which drove me almost to the point of madness.
Self heal helps reduce inflammation, helps balance the immune system and fights viruses. It also reduces oxidative stress.
Since cardiovascular disease is from inflammation and oxidative stress self heal heps protect the heart by reducing inflammation and oxidative stress.
Phloretin found in apple leaves is great for reducing inflammation and balancing the immune system.
Grape seed extract is great for inflammation it reduces many types of inflammatory cytokines including bradykins. It reduces TMAO which causes inflammation. It also helps normalize our gut microbiome. It prevents thrombosis and protects the heart. It helps heal neurological damage. Those who have hepatitis may not be able to use it. It contains resveratrol which can activate hepatitis. It contains resveratrol which reduces the inflammatory cytokines that cause neurological damage and leaky gut.
Resveratrol helps with obesity by reducing the inflammation that causes it. It is also an Nrf2 activator so reduces oxidative stress. Keep in mind we do not want to reduce oxidative stress too low because we need it to produce enzymes, protect us from infection and toxins and cancer. Homeostasis should always be the goal. To little inflammation or oxidative stress can cause cancer, to much can also cause cancer we need to balance things out.
Serrapeptase is an enzyme that silk worms use to escape their cocoon. It has great anti-inflammatory properties. It breaks down scar tissue in the body and can break down cyst formed by infection. It should only be used in low doses. High doses can also start breaking down tissue in the body good tissue in the body , do not take in high doses. It also breaks down biofilms.
I have never tried chrysanthemum but it is supposed to reduce inflammation and protect from renal injury.
Red gensing has a lot of health benefits but those with high blood pressure should not use it. It is a stimulant.
Pau D Arco contains B-lapchone which has been found to fight many types of cancer. It has been found to protect the renal system and reduces inflammation and oxidative stress. Fights many pathogens including mycoplasma. It improves NAD+/NADH ratio which is usually a problem in inflammatory bowel diseases.
Uncaria tomentosa is cat’s claw. There are other herbs called cat’s claw but this is the only one that has well researched health benefits. It helps reduce inflammation, strengthens the immune system and has been shown to help with asthma.
Hesperidin is great for healing, reducing inflammation and reducing histamines. It is also a helicase inhibitor so helps fight viruses. It is found mostly in the white parts of citrus fruits and peppermint.
Palmitoylethanolamide helps with many types of chronic illness. It helps keep the cannabinoid system healthy. It is involved with cellular repair, nerve repair and reduces inflammation. It prevents cardiovascular disease and protects from inflammatory bowel diseases. It helps with mast cell activation syndrome. It is found in eggs and peanuts.
Those with high dopamine or serotonin levels may want to avoid taking PEA it increases them.
Melatonin is an amazing antioxidant with many amazing benefits. Usually I don’t like taking something the body can make itself because it can ruin the bodies ability to produce it but melatonin does not do that. It is great for chronic illness, sleep problems and autoimmunity. It reduces inflammation and oxidative stress.
This is one of those things I thought was crazy is earth grounding. So I look for research to show people who believe that had to be crazy. Turns out earth grounding resets the bodies voltage back to what it should be. Toxins and EMFs change our bodies voltage which causes inflammation. Earth grounding reduces inflammation.
Nobiletin restores cellular autophagy which is the cells way of cleaning itself out and repairing. It is also how the cells protect themselves form infection. It reduces inflammation , helps with fatty liver and diabetes. It should be used in moderation it is a very potent nutrient. It is found in the skins of orange peels. Other citrus fruits have similar phytochemicals that have very similar effects. It even helps with acne. It even helps with learning impairments. Autophagy is also a very important part of the immune system and helps protect the cells from infection.
Polysaccharides in musthrooms are great for balancing our gut microbiome and reducing inflammation. They also improve immune function.
Marshmallow root has amazing healing properties it is great for balancing the immune system, reducing inflammation, amazing for healing the gut. Most plants in the mallow family contain those properties.
Bay leaves have amazing benefits and I craved them when I was ill , they seemed to help with my nausea. My dad always told me not to use it too often. I have not had a chance to look at toxicity studies on it.
Japanese honeysuckle reduces inflammation and histamines. It also stimulates repair of the heart and reduces thrombosis. Honey suckle also fights many types of infection from mycoplasma to viral.
Plantain herb is another herb with amazing healing properties. It contains baicalein which is what makes scutellaria mare effective. It kills many types of infection including gangrene. It reduces Cox-1 and Lox which would help with allergies and interstitial cystitis. It also helps with renal damage.
Mugwort is another amazing plant. It helps heal the renal system and brain , fights many pathogens including mycoplasma. It reduces inflammation and is 1000 as potent against cancer then chemotherapy. Mugwort increases the bodies antioxidants and prevents heart disease.
Scutellaria is high in baicalein which prevents thrombosis, reduces inflammation and balances the immune system. There are two types usually sold on the market american and chinese. Amercan is higher in baicalein. I used american when I was sickest and because it is so potent the sudden restored blood flow to my legs, hands, and brain caused a lot of problems. I experienced headaches from the barin starting to heal, I experienced muscle spasms in my legs and feet and burning pain from the nerves and muscles waking up. I experienced burning in my hands. I wold suggest using chinese which would not cause such sudden healing.
Frankinsense is another super herb. It is from the sap of 5 different spcies of Boswellia. Their sap has been found to help with asthma, inflammation, very good at fighting infection, heals leaky gut and helps with gut dysbiosis. Has been found to help with peristalisis (when the gut is paralyzed. Has been found to fight cancer. The essential oil has been shown to fight skin cancer and reduce scars on the skin. It has been shown to prevent oral infections. The list of benefits goes on and on.
If leaky gut is not corrected it can lead to liver and kidney disease. Leaky gut is not always obvious it usually presents as food intolerances and the number of food intolerances will increase the worse it gets.
Cox-2 inhibitors are good for healing the gut and bladder. Cox-2 inhibitors help with some types of asthma and interstitial cystitis. Things that inhbit iNOS would help with interstitial cystitis. They act similar to NSAIDs without the side effects. Remember you do not want to inhibit COX-2 For too long because we need it for healing, once homeostasis is reach it would be a good idea to just take some once in a while. Natural salicitic acid found in willow bark works as well as NSAIDs if a person has sulfation issues it can make them ill, it can also irritate the stomach if over consumed. Myrtus Communis also reduces pain as well as NSAIDs but I have not found any toxicity studies on it. Myrtus communis does work very well for healing the gut. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29303617 . But does not inhibit Cox-2. Cox-2 inhibitors also help heal the gallbladder.
Lysolecithin causes bladder inflammation. Lysolecithin causes systematic inflammation interstitial cystitis, neurological damage and has been implicated as a causative factor in MS. It is needed for autophagy and low levels can cause hardening of the arteries. Lysolecithin is in high amounts in processed foods and enzyme-modified foods. It is also known as Lysophosphatidylcholine. It is also released from cells during inflammation. It can cause bile blockage. The problem is all processed foods are very high in it which raises our bodies levels too high. lysoPC in high amounts damages the mucus membrane of the gut, combined with alcohol it is much worse. Cigarette smoking also causes damage by rasing LP-PLA2 which increases oxidative stress and lysoPC. I cannot find the link to the study but it causes interstitial cystitis through the nerve damage it causes.
Mediterranean Sage reduces COX-2, and iNOS. It also reduces oxidation of lipids.
Alterations in our gut microbiome can contribute to muscular dystrophy.
Curcimin inhibits COX-2 but if used for too long it can make you anemic so should be pulsed and not used daily. Thunder God Vine reduces COX-2 without inhibiting it’s effects but it can have effects on our hormones if taken for too long. Resveratrol and Querciten inhibit COX-2 with many beneficial effects. Green Tea inhibits COX-2 but over consumption can damage the liver. All things should be done in moderation and homeostasis should be the goal.
Bulgleweed in the mint family inhibits COX-2,
Many of the cornus (dogwood) species the berries reduce inflammatory cytokines and inbibits COX-2,
Groundcone reduces TNF-a, iNOS and COX-2,
Catalpa helps with colitis, inhibits many inflammatory cytokines and COX-2.
Cape Jasmine heals the retina by improving oxygen levels in tissues. It inhibits iNOS and Cox-2. Yellow gentian produces one of the most bitter substances known. Bitter substances stimulate bile. It helps normalize the NMDA receptor which can be overstimulated by metabolic issues causing head aches and anxiety.
Cox-2 is a precursor to prostaglandin E2, mock privet leaves inhibit PGE2.
Rehmannia root should not be taken if the immune system is over activated for example with mast cell activation because it stimulates the immune system. Rehmannia leaves inhibit blood clotting. Rehmannia helps prevent depression and helps with blood brain barrier repair by improving production of tight junction proteins which would also help heal the gut.
Foutainbush also known as firecracker plant reduces inflammation and oxidative stress, it fight infections like malaria. It depresses the central nervous system which improves sleep.
Water figwort inhibits inflammatory cytokines, especially the ones that cause skin inflammation. Desert figwort has similar properties but has a little more potent inflammatory inhibiting effects. Ironwort also known as mountain tea inhibits inflammation, reduces oxidative stress and helps heal the gut. It inhibits Lipoxygenase.
Blue snakeweed reduces anxiety through the GABA and opioid receptors and enhances sleep. It also reduces pain. It fight malaria. It also has potent anti-inflammatory effects and helps heal the gut.
Lilac flowers and bark reduces hydrogen peroxide levels in the body, it reduces lipid peroxidation, and reduces Nitric Oxide levels in those with excess Nitric oxide. In other words it reduces oxidative stress. It also reduces TNF-a , NFK-B and IL-6 and other inflammatory cytokines. It also helps with diabetes. It also stimulates IL-10 which is usually inhibited by the OspA protein in vaccines and some infections like Lyme. It also contains rutin which fights infection.
Water speedwell is in the plantain family. It reduces oxidative stress and reduces inflammatory cytokines stimulated by endotoxins.
Vitex inhibits Cox-2
Liverwort is very effective against fungus even nail and skin fungus. It is anti-inflammatory but contains a cannabinoid that is very potent so should be used in moderation.
Nutmeg inhibts COX-2 and has a cannabinoid that has narcotic like effects. It should not be used in high doses. In high doses it can cause seizures and even death. It has hepaprotective, antiseptic, memory enhancing and reduces inflammation.
Chicory prevents biofilms, helps normalize gut microbiota, it is a bitter herb so stimulates bile production, it fights many infections including malaria and helps fight parasites. It reduces inflammation and is hepaprotective. Helps heal the gut. It has mild sedative effects and reduces pain. It reduces oxidative stress.
Speedwell reduces inflammation by inhibiting Cox-2 and TNF-a. Has strong antioxidant and antimicrobial properties. It also helps with mast cell issues.
Feverfew is great for reducing pain and inflammation. It also helps fight the flu and colds. But if taken for too long a person can become addicted. When they stop taking it they will have toxic withdrawal syndrome and will feel ill and will get a very severe headache.
Berberine protects the brain, renal system, helps balance the immune system. Kills just about all types of infection including mycoplasma. Berberine improves insulin sensitivity, and prevents cardiovascular disease. It also improves lipid metabolism which would help those with pyrrole issues, it also reduces inflammation and oxidative stress. It is found in berberis, oregongrape, amur cork, and california poppy. California poppy also has pain killing properties.
This is a more detail description of what causes pyrrole issues. Pretty much all heck breaks loose.
This one surprised me. I have only seen studies on the bark and roots of paeonia flowers but the health benefits have been amazing, helps with diabetes, heart disease and even helps balance the immune system. It reduces inflammation, oxidative stress and helps normalize the adrenal hormones. It even inhibits cancer growth. It even reduces brain inflammation. It reduces oxalates which are very damaging to the body. It improves gut motility which would help those who have digestive disorders that causes constipation. It also helps prevent biliary blockage which would cause inhibited bile production.
If inflammation is not addressed it can lead to bone loss.
Magnolia has a cannabinoid that reduces pain and inflammation, it also helps with inflammatory bowel issues. It stimulates bone growth, and reduces depression by it’s actions on the GABA receptor it also prevents glutamate build up by increasing the hormone that converts glutamate to GABA, It reduces inflammation by inhibition of PPARy and many of the cytokines found in inflammatory bowel diseases. It has been show to be effective against many metabolic disorders. It inhibits blood clotting it is very effective against cancer, it has been know to fight forms of cancer that are drug resistant. Magnolia reduces oxidative stress and helps restore proper lipid function in the body. It has been shown to fight fungus, Hepatitis C and HIV. It helps with hypertension and is and ACE inhibitor. Most species of magnolia are chemically similar.
Flax seed has a cannabinoid similar to thc. It has anti-inflammatory effects, reduces histamines, reduces pain, helps heal the gut. It is high in Omega 3 fatty acids. Flax seed must be crushed because humans cannot digest that has not been crushed. Flax seed is also high in mucilage so helps heal the gut. It balances our gut microbiome. It reduces oxidative stress. It has been found to heal the kidneys and reduce the risk for cardiovascular disease. It helps with diabetes and normalizes blood sugar levels.It has been shown to restore leptin sensitivity which would prevent obesity. It improves glucose tolerance and gut motility. Flax seed is high in arginine which reduces blood pressure.
Leptin levels increase during infection and is known to be high in those suffering from sepsis. Leptin contributes to the production of inflammatory cytokines and oicosanoids. So if a person has inflammation, allergies, mast cell issues or asthma they may want to avoid leptin until they have those issues corrected.
The type of asthma described in this link is caused by leaky gut. The symptoms they describe are symptoms of leaky gut. The worse a person gut becomes the more allergies they will develop. This can be caused by vaccine injury, farm chemicals in food or toxins like mercury still found in some vaccines. It is necessary to detox and balance the immune system to help with this type of asthma.
Our western diet with the processed foods have been shown to cause inflammatory and autoimmune diseases.
I included information in this post about things that help with asthma but what isn’t covered here I have covered in this post. https://iamajuicer.wordpress.com/2018/07/20/things-that-may-help-with-copd/
There are metabolic issues that can cause leptin deficiencies. This study describes some things that may help.
Black Sativa seed is another super food. It reduces inflammation and heals the gut. It reduces oxidative stress and is hepaprotective. It helps with proteinuria which is a symptom of porphyria. It has been shown to promote the growth of B cells in the pancreas and helps fight cancer. It helps ease the symptoms of asthma. It helps with neurological damage and drug addiction. It has potent antimicrobial properties. It reduces symptoms of Hoshimoto’s . It helps reduce the symptoms of asthma and mast cell activation syndrome. It reduces histamines. It decreases viral load in those with hepatitis C. It improves memory and breast milk production. It increases IL-10 , which is inhibited by the OspA and disables the immune system. Many things like vaccines, mycoplasma and Lyme contain the OspA which inhibits IL-10. Inhibiting IL-10 disables the immune system. Increasing IL-10 restore proper immune function.
Rutin is a very potent at reducing inflammation and oxidative stress. It helps with diabetes and neurological damage. Fights many types of cancer. It has sedative effects and reduces convulsions. It improves cognitive function. Helps restore pancreatic health. It helps those with high T4 levels by reducing T4 thyroid hormone levels. It prevents excess blood clotting and heals the gut. It reduces histamines and eisonophils which helps with asthma and allergies. It heals the gut and improves gut motility. It stimulates bone growth. It has antimicrobial properties and fights mycoplasma and viral infections. It is a COX-2 inhibitor and has been found to protect from sun damage. It normalizes the immune system and reduces most inflammatory cytokines. It reduces fatigue and is neuroprotective.
Rutin is found in the waxy part of the skins of red apples, white skin of citrus fruit, buckwheat, figs,cherries, apricots, rooibos, and black and green tea are high in rutin. Be careful drinking too much black and green tea. Drinking them excessively can damage the liver. Anything can harm our health if used in excess.
Not eating enough foods effects our gut and is why so many in the western world have gut issues, that along with the BT Toxins in GMOs and glyphosate and other farm chemicals. Search my blog on GMOs and glyphosate and you will see there is a lot of research showing how they destroy the gut and brain. Processed foods are very bad on the digestive system. Once our gut is compromised it starts effecting the health of the whole body resulting in increased mast cell degranulation and inflammation. Digestive enzymes helped me a lot. I chose plant derived enzymes. They reduce inflammation, reduce mast cell degranulation which reduces histamines. They help the food break down and be absorbed by the digestive system. I tried to match the enzymes with the types of foods they broke down so what I was going to eat determined what enzymes I would use. If we are deficient in digestive enzymes we will develop gut dysbiosis, bloating, intestinal inflammation, malabsorption, all things that lead to chronic illness. Farm chemicals which are high in our food supply and processed foods inhibit our digestive enzymes. We also will develop fatigue because it inhibits the bodies ability to produce cellular energy. They help prevent cystic fibrosis and asthma. If inflammation or infection persist it can develop into brochhiectasis which causes excess mucus in the lungs. Brochiectasis can result from inflammatory bowel disease, autoimmune disease, and allergies also. All things that can be corrected. https://patient.info/health/bronchiectasis-leaflet herbs that help fight infection help with bronchiectasis. Also reduce inflammation and histamines. All things I have covered on my blog. I have covered COPD and asthma in more detail so I will not cover it much here. It is caused by either autoimmune or inflammation.
High levels of H2S producing bacteria in the gut can deplete thioredoxin which results in thiol build up in the body making us sensitive to thiols and causing hormone imbalances. Thioredoxin reduces hydrogen peroxide and reactive oxygen species. Hydrogen sulfide usually reduces oxidative stress and hydrogen peroxide. N-acetylcysteine usually helps when there is excess H2S production. If a person has to many sulfur digesting bacteria when they eat high sulfur foods it will cause an increase in H2S leading to intestinal inflammation. H2S prevents thrombosis and high blood pressure. H2S has been found to be decreased in age related brain degenerative illnesses. Excess H2S production in the intestines can lead to pouchitis because it inhibits gut motility. High levels of H2S causes chronic fatigue syndrome. High levels of H2S inhibit the electron transport chain which is one of the final steps in energy metabolism in the body. Excess H2S can enhance the activity of the NMDA receptor , excessive NMDA receptor activity is common in autism. When there is excess H2S thiyl radicals are produced which effect lipid metabolism.
For some cannibus has many health benefits and has shown amazing results on cancer. Unfortunately I am one of the few that is negatively impacted by the cannabinoids in it. Fortunately there are many types of cannabinoids found in many plants. I posted on them in more detail.
Rooibos tea is another amazing herb for healing. It reduces inflammation, reduces histamines, helps with asthma, it fights infection in the lungs.
Choline deficiency or issues with choline metabolism can cause fatty liver, brain dysfunction, neurological damage, inflammation and oxidative stress. I had to deal with choline metabolism issues. You will get indigestion when you consume fats if you have issues with choline metabolism. That could also be a sigh of porphyria. It also causes problems metabolizing fats if you are choline deficient.
I had a lot of friends who used black ginger and they said it really helped them with a variety of illnesses from autoimmunity, asthma, inflammation, arthritis, leaky gut you name it.
Chrysanthemum helps with endotoxemia from infection and leaky gut. It reduces oxidative stress, inflammation and reduces nitrositive stress.
Camu Camu is very nutritious and high in vitamin C and minerals. It reduces inflammation and oxidative stress. It also increases GABA levels.
I am still uncertain about HDAC inhibitors reducing oxidative stress and increasing things that deal with oxidative stress would be a better route to go. Inhibiting HDAC would be treating the symptoms but not the cause of the illness. Inhibiting it can have such a dramatic effect on the body. HDAC inhibitors have been shown to reduce interstitial cystitis symptoms and symptoms of inflammatory bowel diseases, inflammation and cancer. Inhibiting HDAC increases Ogg1 which prevent cancer and oxidative stress. I have posted on the Nrf2 pathways. Activating Nrf2 stimulates Ogg1.
There are natural HDAC inhibitors. Which help fight cancer.
Ogg1, increasing Ogg1 fights cancer, excess oxidative stress and reduces risk of cardiovascular disease and other inflammatory diseases. It has been shown to help with autoimmunity. Inhibiting mTOR activates Ogg1. Remember do not over do it we need some oxidative stress to absorb nutrients, fight infection and break down scar tissue in the body.
Ogg1 needs folate to function properly. Remember folate and folic acid are not the same folic acid is toxic to the body and is man made. High blood glucose levels and low insulin levels can inhibit Ogg1. I have posted on mTOR inhibitors. Inhibiting mTOR increases Ogg1.
Ogg1 and MuT Homolog1 are DNA repair mechanism and are upregulated in ulcerative colitis. Oxidative stress increases their expression.
In bladder injury parp is activated. This indicates excess inflammation or excess oxidative stress causing DNA damage because PARP is activated during DNA damage. Excess PARP activation depletes NAD+/ATP which causes cell death. PARP is over activated in some types of cancer. Keep in mind the common ties. Inflammation, what causes it why is it happening? Finding the source and correcting in is how to heal not by treating the symptoms. PARP inhibition can lead to obesity, insulin resistance and glucose intolerance.
Excess PARP1 hyperactivation can cause occluding to be down regulated. This is found in tight junction layers throughout the body and can lead to a leaky blood brain barrier, bladder injury, and leaky gut. It has also been linked to Alzheimer’s. It can also lead to stroke, heart inflammation, brain and nerve damage.
Querciten and Rutin inhbiti PARP with Querciten being the most potent inhibitor. Heat Shock Protein 90 inhibits PARP. This can be stimulate by heat.
C-reactive protein causes inflammation. It is a sign of bacteria infection. If C-reactive levels are high for too long it can damage the bladder and lead to chronic illness like cardiovascular disease, diabetes and autoimmunity. C-reactive levels are high in most chronic illness especially heart disease and interstitial cystitis. It is usually caused by infection yet I have seen many go years with high C-reactive levels and refused antibiotic treatment because they are told they do not have and infection. Those with tick born illness and interstitial cystitis are the ones who are the most victimized by the medical community. In order to reduce C-reactive protein levels you must address the cause which means detoxing if it is caused by something like glyphosate, aluminum, mercury or infection. An anti-inflammatory diet helps. Also often times oxidative stress is involved and needs addressed.
If p53 is inhibited ROS increases. This in turn can cause mutant P53 which will have the same effects as inhibited p53. Inflammation inhibits p53. Loss of p53 causes inflammation in the body that becomes unregulated especially in the bladder. Oxidative stress and excess inflammation can inhibit P53 creating a cycle that is difficult to break. Mutated P53 is common in interstitial cystitis and cancer.
Magnets reduce inflammation and improve blood flow. One pole stimulates blood flow and one pole reduces inflammation but I do not remember which pole does which and I cannot find the links to the studies.
Written by Lee Stevenson , sorry I am a lousy editor so there will be error in my grammar.
GMOs are one big lie.
They say we need GMOs because of a shortage of food. That is a lie it is because of greed. Many nations are studying how to deal with the massive amounts of food wastage. They create false fears then offer a false solution.
They claim that BT Toxins in GMOs are safe for human consumption. They say the animals that died from eating them is anecdotal evidence. At what point does it become solid proof? When the corporation lying about it decides it is real evidence ? When the corrupt governments who have been proven to be colluding with the biotech industry to hide the harm they are doing decides the evidence is beyond anecdotal? It has become clear now days that our governments and many of those in them are overcome with greed for power and money. I feel sorry for those who have not been corrupted and are trying to fight for what is right. Why are they not required to test them for safety. Why are they allowed to falsely claim they have been tested when they have not. They claim they have but the studies are so flawed they are invalid. They read more like an advertisement for the biotech industry. Most of the studies they quote to promote GMOs have been retracted or proven to be flawed.
What gets me is the BT Toxin has been found in the human blood stream showing that consuming it does effect the body because the biotech industry claims that cannot happen. They have even found it in the blood streams of infants in mothers wombs. I would like to see if those BT Toxin crystals cause the same ill health effects as oxalates because they are sharp crystal shaped structures. Oxalates cause joint pain especially in the hips, they also cause inflammation throughout the body. Inflammation causes autoimmunity, cancer and chronic illnesses like heart disease and diabetes. I wonder how many out there have joint pain and it is being caused by BT Toxin crystals but since there is no research in it they are probably being told it is in their heads or it is stress. That is allopathic medicines go to solution when they do not have an answer.
BT Toxins have been found to cause genetic alterations in rats that consume them. Since they are making their way into human blood streams there is a good chance that is also occurring in humans. The worst part of it is they are now doing what is called stacking. They are splicing genes from a number of different BT Toxin producing microbes into GMOs making them even more toxic.
There are studies showing the body reacts to BT Toxins the same way the body would react if it was having an allergic reaction. Many believe they are gluten intolerant but it is BT Toxin and glyphosate intolerant that is really the problem. The BT Toxin works by pretty much by destroying an insects gut giving them leaky gut which in humans causes food intolerances and allergies. BT Toxin has been show to deteriorate the mucus membrane in the gut. Now add the toxic effects of glyphosate which does pretty much the same things but can cause gut paresis. BT Toxins have been shown to trigger an inflammatory response in the gut which reduces the gut mucus membrane were our gut microbes that keep us healthy reside. There is no study showing the health effects of this from BT Toxins but there are many studies showing when this happens we develop leaky gut , autoimmunity and chronic inflammatory diseases. Now you can see why inflammatory bowel diseases are rampant now days.
BT Toxin has been found to be toxic to the blood and causes anemia and many other blood disorders. It has been shown to negatively impact the adrenal glands, spleen, liver and kidney. Notice all those types of illnesses have taken a dramatic climb lately.
GMOs have been shown to be nutritionally inferior. When they alter the genes so the plant produces higher amounts of a certain nutrient it causes the plant to produces less of another. The glyphosate and glufonisate they use on them chelate nutrients from the soil and enter our blood stream and chelate nutrients form the body. I believe it is not a coincidence the U.S. government started requiring they fortify food with the very nutrients that those chemicals chelate from the soil and body. The bad part about that is they use synthetic vitamins which are toxic to the body. Folic acid is man made and has been shown to increase the risk of cancer. It builds up in the blood stream causing psychosis and bipolarism because it damages the NMDA receptor. If you search my blog I have posted on it. Folate which is natural has the opposite effects. The sad part is many medical professionals do not know the difference between folate and folic acid. Because they are fortifying foods with iron many in the U.S. have iron toxicity which causes oxidative stress which can lead to cancer and chronic illness and digestive problems.
They have shown that it is possible for the genes from GMOs to transfer horizontally to the gut microbiotia and in animal studies it has happened. Knowing what BT Toxin does to the body can you imagine if our microbiotia is producing BT Toxin adding to the levels of BT Toxin in the bodies of those consuming GMOs. I would like to see someone study that and I would like to see a study on the blood levels of BT Toxins in those who consume GMOs.
GMOs are causing insects and weeds to become resistant to herbicides and pesticides which has increased the need to use those harmful chemicals. This has resulted in the extinction of some insects that polinate. It has brought the monarch butterfly on the verge of extinction and many bees have been put on the endangered species list. Bees are not the only thing that pollinates and the BT Toxin has been killing a variety of pollinating insects.
It is also contaminating the environment because the BT Genes are transferring to plants in the wild. I have posted on how toxic GMOs are if you want to learn more you can read more at this link.
GMOs are toxic to the body now imagine that combined with glyphosate and other farm chemicals.
Hundreds of studies showing insects build up a resistance to it which means they are now stacking a variety of BT Toxin genes into the GMO crops making them even more toxic to eat. Cattle and sheep have died from eating GMOs. It had a negative impact on rats fed even low doses of GMOs. The most notable are the changes to the rats intestinal system which matches many unexplained digestive disorders many suffer from now days.
BT toxin cause an immune response very similar to food poisoning.
I could list many studies showing that organic crops produce comparable or higher yields at lower cost. Not only that but the herbicides used on them chelate nutrients from the soil and when consumed they enter the blood stream and do the very same thing.
Now imagine what the combined effects of glyphosate and BT Toxin does.
BT Toxin in GMO are different then the natural bt toxin. The natural was toxic to humans so imagine consuming it.
They have never been tested for their risk to humans.
Not only those issues but horizontal gene transfer has been shown to happen which can turn our guts into pesticide factories.
The hype surrounding GMOs is based on research that has been retracted.
There was a hidden viral gene found in GMOs this has happened with vaccinations which has led to new super bugs occuring.
They falsely claim they need to save the world from starvation when in reality many nations are trying to figure out how to deal with the massive food wastage.
The plants we eat effect our genes can you imagine what GMOs are doing to peoples genes.
This is not medical advice I am posting this for educational and informational purposes.
Written by Lee Stevenson. Edited by no one I am too tired to lol.
People in the U.S. have dramatically reduced their intake of cholesterol and fat. Since then cardiovascular disease, obesity and chronic illness has climbed almost 5 times what it was before the diet change. People need to ask why? Shouldn’t people be healthier by following the government guidelines. As usual you will find the government is wrong again as they often times are.
Sorry I did not summarize this like I have with other post but I am getting tired and I have no source of income and need to try to focus on finding a way to make some money with my limited resources. I am trying to get as many of my notes online as I can but I need to focus on making some money very soon. to summarize this would take me about 40 hours to provide links with notes by the links take me about 18 hours.
If we have fat metabolism issues or dis-regulation it can cause chronic illness. Fat protects us from inflammation, infection and is very important in healing.
Symptoms of fat absorption issues or fat deficiency is sugar and carbohydrate cravings, poor digestion and constipation, fatigue, low hormone levels, dry skin and eyes, intestinal inflammation which will inhibit nutrient absorption, weight gain because polyunsaturated fats are needed to break down fats. Joint pain, vision problems, and depression or poor concentration because the brain is mostly fat. Vitamin deficiency can cause a loss in the ability of the body to use fats. This can be caused by a loss of the microbes in our guts that produce the B12 for us, or from malabsorption. Until I got my gut healed I had to use the type of B12 you put under your tongue so I could absorb B12 better.
How inflammation causes obesity.
Another important nutrient for digesting fats is water. If you are dehydrated frequently in you will become ill and obese.
Your gut microbiome tell you what to eat.
It is a myth that saturated fats are bad for a healthy person. Only when you are ill do they cause problems.
Another myth is that if you eat less you will lose weight.
Eggs are a good food to eat in order to lose weight.
If you want a more in depth article about fats these articles explain them and their benefits and proportions we should eat.
Here is a good list of what fats are good to eat and what ones should be avoided.
Why we should get fats from natural sources.
There are many industries that get people on a hamster wheel of fear. There is no money in solving a problem but if you keep giving people false hope and they do not do their research and search for the truth they end up on a hamster wheel of false hope getting no where. They will jump from one hamster wheel to the next having their ignorance of things taken advantage of. If you want off the hamster wheels of fear and ignorance learn the truth in matters you are not going to get the truth from the industries who profit from ghost written or fake research papers. There is no money in solving a problem. I watch these people go on fad diets and pay for supplements they will lose weight temporarily but those diets cause the body to go into starvation mode, when they do consume food it will start storing fat so that when it is starving again it will have the reserves it needs the next times starvation occurs. Starvation and fat deprivation are different then fasting. Fasting has many benefits if done correctly under guidance of and experienced naturopath.
They push yogurt as a weight loss food but many have strains of microbes in them that cause obesity. They promote diet soda as a way to lose weight and they actually cause weight gain. Low fat foods actually cause weight gain because the body needs fats to process nutrients propertly.
How our gut microbiome can help us lose weight.
you inherit your microbiota from your family. They modulate the genes to determine if you will be obese or not. It is not genetics.
Reishi mushroom increases the fat reducing microbiome.
This link explains the falsehood of many myths about losing weight.
High triglyceride levels can indicate excess oxidative stress. It is not caused by excess fat or cholesterol consumption. It is a symptom not the cause. This is why lowering cholesterol and fat intake does not lower the bodies fat and cholesterol content. Also gut imbalance cause by farm chemicals in our food and antibiotics can cause lipid imbalance leading to high triglyceride levels.
Now Omega 6s when under oxidative stress cause inflammation. I have posted on addressing oxidative stress it is very important to address it.
If you want to learn the truth about fats this doctor has put together some very accurate articles about fat.
If a person is deficient in choline they will experience headaches and may get indigestion when they consume fats. There are also metabolic issues that can prevent the body from properly metabolizing choline that can cause those symptoms when we consume choline.
There is a myth about fat making you fat. There is fat that causes obesity one is man made trans-fat which also causes cardiovascular disease. Inflammation an imbalance or deficiency in our microbiome and metabolic issues can lead to obesity. Fat and carbohydrates do not cause obesity. Neither does laziness I know many obese workers who were very hard workers and I knew many skinny people who sat around doing nothing all day. I mainly want to focus on fats this is a good article on how our gut microbes effect our weight. It is processed carbohydrates that cause health problems and most likely from the things they add to them. The food industry is allowed to add toxins to the food to preserve it and enhance it’s color. They also contain GMOs and the body reacts to BT Toxins found in GMOs the same way it would react if you got food poisoning. Also most of the processed foods are high in glyphosate and glufonisate which have been linked to many types of chronic illness. Another problem with modern diets is the intake of Omega 3 oils and Omega 6 oils is out of balance. Our intake of Omega 3 should be higher then our intake of Omega 6. When they are in balance Omega 6 reduces inflammation. When Omega 6 levels get higher then Omega 3 levels then Omega 6 will cause inflammation. They claim high fat diets and high cholesterol diets cause raised blood cholesterol levels but this has never been proven scientifically and the opposite has been found to be true. Processed carbohydrates have been found to cause weight gain.
Now combine trans-fat with aspartame which is known to cause obesity and diabetes and you are asking for trouble.
Natural trans-fat that is not hydrogenated and found in animal products are actually good for our health.
Berberine found in things like bayberries decreases the gut bacteria that causes obesity and increases the bacteria that promote health.
Lipid dis-regulation is endothelial dysfunction which can be caused by vaccinations or toxins which causes autoimmunity. Especially those found in GMO foods. Even statins have been known to cause it and cognitive dysfunction. This is why statins have been linked to higher mortality from cardiovascular disease. Autoimmunity can lead to hair loss from dis-regulated lipid metabolism. GMOs and glyphosate used on them causes leaky gut which leads to autoimmune disease. If a person develops issues with lipid metabolism it can cause sterol precursors to build up which inhibit cellular and even mitochondrial function. This causes a sensitivity to sterols including plant sterols.
Glyphosate is a double whammy because it causes gut dysbiosis and leaky gut which has been linked to lipid dis-regultion. It also inhibits Cytochrome P450 enzymes which causes lipid dis-regulation. Our gut bacteria dramatically effect our health and an imbalance leads to chronic illness.
Berberine also helps reduce fatty liver disease.
Inflammation causes cardiovascular disease and guess what causes inflammation, sugar, trans-fats and hydrogenated vegetable oils.
Transfats like that found in margerine and hydrogenated vegetable oils have been linked to obesity and cardiovascular disease. This was proven shortly after their introduction to the market and yet they still promote them as good for your health. Reducing fat intake does not reduce the risk of heart disease but changing the types of fats we take in does. Reducing consumption of tran-fats and consumption of hydrogenated oil reduces our risk of cardiovascular disease.
Processed sugar is more of a worry it can make men become feminine. Also eating bad fats like those from GMO fed animals can make a man feminine. Fat from grass fed animals do not have those effects. Sugar causes cardiovascular disease and the sugar industry paid a lot of money to hide that fact.
Not only that but because GMO are lower in nutritional value a person has to consume more the high food intake results in obesity.
Most beef in the U.S. is contaminated with BT Toxins and glyphosate which we consume and then end up with it in our blood streams because grains used to feed them are GMO. Grass fed beef has been shown to be better for our health. This holds true for most animals products those from grass fed actually promote health. What the animal eats is what determines their effects on our health when we consume them.
They are still stuck on the high cholesterol causes heart disease hamster wheel but if you read my blog post on cholesterol and statins you will see those with high cholesterol live longer. This myth got started from a flawed study produced in the 1950’s and had been discredited but the media ran with it and it become accepted as a valid scientific paper even though it was plagued with flaws. The results of that are that the diet in the U.S. changed. People consume for less cholesterol and fat in their diets. This has resulted in something like 5 times the obesity rate and cardiovascular disease. Studies still try to prove that cholesterol levels are linked to heart disease but when you read the studies you can see they have not proven they are linked to heart disease but to prevent attacks from the pharmaceutical industry or even the medical industry who makes millions from this deception they will and comments that are biased even though their studies show there is no link between high cholesterol and heart disease. Almost every cell in our bodies need cholesterol , our heart and brain cannot function without it. It is why statins have been linked to increased cardiovascular disease and mental decline. They deprive the heart, muscles and brain of cholesterol.
Even our government admits that increased cholesterol consumption is not linked to cardiovascular disease and so has many research papers.
It has been proven many times that fat consumption is not what determines whether we are obese or not. Eating fat actually causes weight loss because it increases satiety meaning we will eat less.
Antibiotics and glyphosate along with other farm chemicals can cause leaky gut and gut dysbiosis. This can lead to malabsorption issues. Vaccination increase B cell levels which can cause the same health problems. We need fat to absorb fat soluble vitamins so no matter how much we eat we will not absorb nutrients. When this happens we should switch to using short chain fatty acids because our bodies can readily use them without having to break them down. This causes bile production to become inhibited adding further to the malabsorption because inhibited bile flow also decreases the pancreatic release of digestive enzymes. If we do not eat enough fat we cannot produce bile and it will lead to chronic illness and can result in inflammatory bowel disease.
List of fat soluble vitamins.
Higher fat intake lowers the risk of cardiovascular disease.
High fat diets prevent our skin from aging.
I have posted on things that can inhibit bile like gut dysbiosis, leaky gut, fat deficiency or pyrrole issues which prevent the body from being able to use fats properly. Issues with the citric acid cycle can also inhibit bile production. If that happens it can cause the bladder to develop infection and will have to be removed. Instead of letting it get to that point address the problems because the bladder is very important for proper health. A person can become deficient in lipase and will not be able to break down fats. If you have had it removed this is a site that has information on how to deal with it. To increase lipase production drink water from volcanic sources. Eat carbohydrates. Exercise increases lipase levels.
Symptoms of lipase deficiency are gallbladder problems, interstitial cystitis, arthritis, heart palpitations, deposits of lipid build up under the skin, allergies and food intolerances, spastic colon, high TH17 levels which causes skin rashes.
How to increase lipase.
Low Sirt levels can cause obesity or inflammatory bowel disease. Leptin resistance causes obesity increasing Sirt will increase leptin sensitivity.
Issues with sulfation , high sulfur digesting bacteria levels in the gut or sulfur deficiency can cause obesity. Glyphosate, fluoroquinolone antibiotics and mercury still found in some vaccines are the number causes of sulfation issues.
Another cause of obesity is hormone imbalance which can be caused by the toxins found in processed foods, farm chemicals which have been found to be high in our food supply and toxins in the containers used to store our food in. Also metabolic issues caused by inflammation, leaky gut or gut dysbiosis can lead to hormone imbalance.
Catalase is known as the longevity enzyme. It protects the cells from damage caused by oxidative stress and toxins. Consuming fat increases catalase. Higher the fat consumption the lower the mortality rate.
Those with autoimmune diseases especially interstitial cystitis need fats to reduce the high ceramide levels.
Before correcting metabolic issues, inflammatory problems or gut issues that may be causing obesity a person should detox and continue to detox as they lose weight because fat stores toxins to protect the body.
The fats that benefit health the most are polyunsaturated fats, monounsaturated fats, medium chain fatty acids are also very important for good health.
Now if you read this research paper fat activates Sirt1 which is known as the antiaging gene. So fat reverses againg. Since the research showing fat causes obesity is full of flaws and missing data then you have to look to find the data and why they left it out. There studies are conditionally biased they do not want people to know how to get healthy. A healthy patient is not a patient so the medical and pharmaceutical industry both lose money. They have no incentive to get people healthy and it is why they only research and treat the symptoms because treating the cause creates a lost customer.
Olive oil Is high in a variety of fats that promote health.
Omega 9 which is rarely mentioned has many health benefits. This article also list source of Omega 3. It is well worth reading. It mentions soybean oil and cotton seed oil. Most are GMO now and toxic. Unless you can find organic I would stay away from those.
The fats found in butter and ghee have amazing health benefits.
Flax seed oil and consuming fish that are high in fat improves the quality of life in those with MS. So does consuming fruit.
The endocanabinoid system is dependent on fats and if we do not get enough it cannot function.
I do not know anyone who had tried this but based on research I have read it should help with the many issues caused by inflammatory bowel and malabsorption if not taken in doses over 200mg.
People need to stop worrying about being fat and focus on being healthy. This woman states it best in the article she has written.
Fasting shuts down the production of fats and cholesterol. This should be done correctly and should be research before trying this and those with type 1 diabetes can cause ketoacidosis if they try fasting.
A safer alternative for those with type 1 diabetes may be a high fat ketogenic diet.
Leptin resistance causes obesity and cardiovascular disease so should be addressed.
Those who lose weight too quickly will cause very low leptin levels which will impact their health. In order to recover they will need to increase their leptin levels.
Ursolic acid found in apple skins, prunes, rosemary, basil, peppermint, thyme, oregano, hawthorn and bilberries helps correct metabolic issues and reduce fatty liver disease. It increases skeletal muscle and the healthy brown fat in our bodies.
Bile acid is very important in the regulation of fats in our body.
Statins cause alzheimers for the same reason low fat diets do. The brain is made mostly of fat. I cannot believe people have not figured out since fat and cholesterol has been dramatically reduced in the diet in the U.S. obesity, cardiovascular disease and chronic illness has taken a dramatic climb. Where did the myth they cause obesity and cardiovascular disease come from. I have only seen a couple studies and they read more like advertisements for the pharmaceutical industry. They were plagued with conditional bias and opinion which does not belong in research only the facts matter.
Inflammation causes heart disease not cholesterol.
If you are deficient in fat you cannot fight infection.
Bitter melon enhances lipid metabolism and reduces estrogen.
Lactobacillus Reuteri increases oxytocin which reduces weight gain from menopause.
This is not medical advice I am posting this for educational and informational purposes. Naturopathic doctors usually already have this type of knowledge and it would be a good idea to seek one if you are ill.
Vitmain D Receptor.
Homeostasis should always be the goal. If you over do things you can cause just as many health problems as you are trying to address. If we have an inhibited VDR receptor we will develop gut dysbiosis. It is important in maintaining balance of our gut microbiome. Inhibited VDR also causes intestinal inflammation. A person can become deficient in iron and their GABA levels may become low. I have posted in other blog post how to increase GABA. Lactoferrin and Knotgrass help restore iron homeostasis. Knotgrass should not be mistaken for Knotweed they are very different plants.
If the vitamin D receptor becomes inhibited we will develop digestive problems , inhibited bile and malabsorption. We will also develop lipid dysfunction. We can also develop autoimmunity and will be more prone to herpes type virus infections along with tuberculosis. Toxins and infection inhibit the vitamin D receptor especially mercury and glyphosate. I have posted on detoxing. When proper function of VDR is inhibited a person may appear to be deficient in vitamin D.
In some with inhibited VDR taking vitamin D can make them worse they need to address the cause not the symptom. This is usually caused by infection which can inhibit cyp24A1 enzyme.
How to increase Cyp24A1 enzyme activity. Do not over do it because it can cause deficiencies in certain types of vitamin D from causing their depletion. Homeostasis should always be the goal. Decreasing inflammation should also be a priority because inflammation inhibits cyp24A1. Curcumin and resveratrol found in grape seed extract stimulate Cyp24A1. Curcumin chelates iron and should not be used for too long because if used for too long it can cause anemia. Forskolin increases cyp24A1 activity. High FGF-23 levels will inhibit VDR.
Reducing phosphate and adrenal hormones helps reduce FGF-23. Reducing inflammation also decreases FGF-23. They often time recommend ferric citrate to lower potassium which lowers FGF-23 but this can lead to iron toxicity so if used it should be done in moderation. Calcium carbonate and calcium acetate help reduce phosphate levels. Chocolate, soda pop, bottled beverages and beer should be avoided they are high in phosphate. Milk products, beef liver and fish eggs are also high in phosphate. Phosphate binders should be taken with meals.
Loss of VDR receptor can cause hair to become brittle and you may start losing your hair, you can develop osteoporosis, your insulin level may become high while your blood glucose levels will become low. You may develop joint pain and swelling and fibromyalgia like symptoms. You will develop severe bone pain.
Excess vitamin D will cause excess thirst, high oxalate levels, loss of appetite, abdominal pain, muscle fatigue, confusion and weakness.
Zinc, Vitamin K2, Vitamin A, Vitamin E are needed and sulfate which is found in water from volcanic sources. Those who are not sulfating right or have high levels of sulfide in their bodies need sulfate because they will not be able to convert food sources of sulfur and it will make them sicker. Brown seaweed and cod liver oil has many of the nutrients needed by the vitamin D receptor. Sardines and eggs are good sources of vitamin D.
Halogen light, sunlight or far infrared will help detox hormones from the body.
High adrenalin levels can also inhibit the VDR. Adaptogens may help to reduce adrenal hormones. Maca root and suma root helped me. Ashwanga is a very potent adaptogen but be careful because as I stated it is potent. Rhodiola and Eluethero have been shown to be very effective and safe adaptogens.
Excess estrogen can interfere with proper VDR function. Low dose boron can help detox excess estrogen. Soaking in epsom salt and then getting sunlight, far infrared or halogen light will also help detox carcinogenic estrogen. High estrogen levels causes high T4 thyroid hormone levels and low T3 hormone levels.
Calcium D Glucarate inhibits B-Glucuronidase which increase glucuronosyltransferase activity which helps remove glucuronide groups from the body. Many toxins are glucuronidated including carcinogenic hormones. This helps remove estrogen from the body. It also reduces DHEA and steroid hormones. I would not use this daily but I would pulse it. This has been shown to help with interstitial cystitis.
High dose vitamin D can inhibit the VDR receptor but low dose can stimulate it.
If the vitamin D receptor is inhibited Thymosin B4 will be inhibited. Thymosine B4 is needed for tissue regeneration and also needed for the body endogenous steroids to reduce inflammation. If deficient Thymosin B4 a person will develop dry eyes. Thymosin B4 is used to cure dry eyes.
If the vitamin D receptor is inhibited the absorption of iron, zinc, magnesium and calcium will be inhibited. Also vitamin D inhibits inflammation and the release of histamines.
Increasing Sirt1 can stimulate the vitamin D receptor. It is also known as the longevity gene. Fasting activates Sirt1. Resveratrol activates Sirt1. It is found in high levels in red wine and skins of grapes. It is also found in high levels in grape seed extract. When Sirt catalyzes a reaction NAD+ is required. Curcumin increases Sirt activity but should be used in moderation because it chelates iron from the body and can eventually lead to anemia if used for too long. Querciten increases Sirt activity. Berberine dramatically increases Sirt1 activity. Ferulic Acid found in wheat germ, white navy beans and angelica increase Sirt activity. There are many things that can increase Sirt.
Now the down side to Sirt1 and why homeostasis should always be the goal and we must be careful not to over do things. Over activation of Sirt can cause excess oxidative stress which can lead to damage in the body.
High adrenal hormones, high T4 level, high phosphatonin levels and high prolactin levels can inhibit the VDR receptor. Autophagy reduces all of those. Things that stimulate autophagy are fasting, fulvic acid, nobiline, resveratrol. High phosphatonin is a sign of leaky gut or other digestive issues. It is caused by high Fibroblast Growth Factor 23 which increases when we have digestive issues. Causes of high prolactin can be a dopamine deficiency, or issues metabolizing dopamine, or hormone imbalances. High FGF-23 inhibits the VDR.
High TGF-B levels can inhibit VDR. High TGF-B is and indication of T-cell or B-cell imbalance. I have posted on increasing T regulatory cell which help balance the immune system. High TGF-B can be caused by mold toxins. Symptoms of high TGF-B levels are low acetylcholine levels, muscle loss, bone loss, frequent infections, increased serotonin levels, decreased immune response but increased inflammation.
High Phosphatonins can be a sign of low klotho levels. High phosphatonins can indicate severe kidney disease, high cellular damage, high vitamin D levels or ketoacidosis. Symptoms of high phosphatonin levels are muscle cramps or spasms, bone and joint pain, bone loss, rashes or itchy skin. A diet low in phosphate will help reduce symptoms until the problem is corrected.
Vitamin A and K2 are needed for the vitamin D receptor to function properly.
Increasing klotho will decrease phosphatoin levels. To increase klotho decrease toxins in the body. Exercise can increase klotho. Carbohydrates increase insulin which increases klotho. Probiotics acidophilus, and Lactobacillus Lactis increases Klotho. There are natural ACE inhibitors which increases klotho. Some natural ACE inhibitors are whole cooked rice, peas, sea food, chitin , brown and red algae, Pleurotus cornucopiae mushroom, matsutake mushroom, walnuts, pomegranate, Onopordon acanthium also known as cotton thistle, banana, bitter melon, Lactobacillus Plantarum , Lactobacillus Casei, bacillus subtilis, termina chebula, cooked tomato skin, rice bran, and hemp seed. Our commensal E Coli produce ACE inhibitors.
If prolactin levels are high a person will lose their sex drive, experience hypothyroidism, and mental distress. In women it can disrupt the menstrual cycle, and they can have seepage from the breast, vaginal dryness and painful sex. High prolactin levels can cause headaches and blurred vision. A person may experience hot flashes.
Ashwagandha decreases prolactin and increases testosterone. Vitamin E reduces prolactin, cod liver oil is a good source of vitamin E. Vitamin B6 reduces prolactin levels. Maca Root reduces prolactin levels. Sleep and zinc help reduce prolactin levels. Chasteberry, ginger, clove and cayenne pepper lowers prolactin levels. Also avoid foods contaminated with endocrine dysruptors especially GMO which are high in glyphosate. Increasing dopamine decreases prolactin. Avoid foods in containers that have BPA in them. Do not use plastics for food that contains BPA.
Sirt1 increases VDR activity. I have posted on stimulating Sirt. Fasting, querciten , grapes seed extract and many other things can stimulate Sirt1.
Omega 3s found in fish oil, coconut oil and olive oil can activate the VDR receptor. Some who have pyrrole issues they may have to use medium chain fatty acids instead. Medium chain fatty acids can be readily used by the body without having to be converted. Some sources of MCFA are coconut oil, unpasteurized raw animal milk(goat milk contains some of the highest levels), palm kernel oil, Durio graveolens which is in the durian family but is red and does not smell like dead animal like the others. Macadamia nut and pumpkins seeds are also high in MCFA. Butyric acid found in Ghee and butter and produced by some of our gut bacteria provides MCFA. Cocoa butter made from cocoa beans is high in stearic acid. Nuts are high in MCFA. You may also see them referred to as medium chain triglycerides, MCTs.
For those who are not sensitive to methyl donors SAMe can restore VDR function but I would not take it excessively or for too long.
Here is a link with good information on the vitamin D receptor.
I covered vitamin D more in depth by this post.
Lyme destroys the heart.
Some are having to sue.
There is a lot of fraud and flaws with Lyme testing and it has been 30 years since the fraud was exposed and our government will do nothing about it. Lyme test do not work and the guidelines set out by the CDC and IDSA are based on fraudulent research. It is why people have to die first before they are properly diagnosed with Lyme. The test for Lyme was meant to be used to track Lyme disease cases it was not meant to be used for clinical diagnoses so why are they requiring it to be used before a person can be treated?
They will probably never be able to create a test for Lyme because of the complexity of Lyme iteslf.
Though the test may offer some hope if they get diagnosed chances are if they have Lyme even the most reliable test can be negative but it increases your chances of being able to be treated if you get tested and it shows you have Lyme.
There are many strains of Lyme but the test only test for two that I know of. So what happens of a person has one of the many other types of Lyme infections? It will go undetected.
Sadly they are still running on the Lyme testing hamster wheel and it is going no where and is why it should be a clinical diagnoses. Or they should have the blood put directly under the microscope to looke for live spirochetes. Sadly even that fails. I have seen people told they do not have Lyme after getting their blood put under a microscope when you could clearly see Lyme spirochetes in the persons blood. Why all the lying?
The true number of those dying from Lyme will never be known because unlike HIV, or other illnesses that they list on the death certificate complications of HIV or diabetes or things of that nature with Lyme they will list it as renal failure or heart failure. Also because Lyme damages the brain and causes depression suicide rates are very high with Lyme sufferers so there again though Lyme indirectly was the cause of death it is not what the death certificate would say.
This is not medical advice, I am posting this for imformational and educational purposes.
Homeostasis should always be the goal. If you over do things you can push yourself too far in the other direction and have a whole lot of new problems to deal with.
High levels of ammonia in the body can damage the liver and kidneys. It can irritate the bladder and damage the brain. A person will develop brain foga and, they will develop brain swelling because ammonia makes the blood brain barrier more porous. A person will also develop muscle weakness, blurred vision, confusion and possibly demensia. When ammonia levels get very high a person will start developing high glutamate levels. This will cause a head ache that will make your head feel like it is going to split in half. Dysbiosis, high glyphosate or glufonisate levels in the body can cause high ammonia levels. Infections can also increase ammonia levels, especially tick born illness. High aluminum levels causes a disruption in the cycle needed to convert glutamate to GABA. This causes low GABA levels and high glutamate levels. I have posted on the pineal gland which covers detoxing aluminum. Most species of bifido bacteria will produce GABA if they are provided with fiber or Galacto-oligosaccharide. A bacteria found I swiss chees Propionibacterium Freudenreichii produces substances that enhances the growth and health of bifidobacteria.
Most lactobacillus species of probiotic produce lactate which helps reduce ammonia levels. Glacto-oligosaccharide help increase lactobacillus.
Drugs like fluoroquinolones can cause metabolic issues that can cause high ammonia levels.
High ammonia levels also effect our bladder and our digestive system. It changes the ph increasing it. This causes commensal like Candida and H Pylori to go from commensal to pathogenic forms. In order to restore our health we must work on reducing the ammonia levels in our bodies. Metabolic issues can also cause increased ammonia levels. Porphyria, pronteinuria, BH4 deficiency, and upregulated CBS pathway can cause high ammonia levels. Another why that high ammonia can develop is if the bodies ability to metabolize phenylalanine is blocked or inhibited. Low zinc levels can impair the uric acid cycle which can cause ammonia levels to become raised. I found zinc pocalinate helped me a lot.
When a person is suffering from any of those issues high sulfur foods and meat will make things worse. Also consumption of fats will make someone ill if they have high ammonia levels. Medium chain fatty acids are the best to consume when we have those issues. P5P a bioavailable for of B6, magnesium chloride and getting micro nutrients helps reduce ammonia levels. Molybdenum also becomes depleted but should only be taken a few times a week it can become toxic if we over do it. We need selenium I prefer natural sources to prevent getting too much and messing our thyroids up. I eat about 4 Brazil nuts a day. If you have thyroid issues selenium can cause you to react in a way that resembles a food allergy.
High ammonia levels cause neurological damage throughout the body. It will also cause excessive blood clotting and damage to our blood vessels. Bacopa, grape seed extract and hawthorne help prevent that damage.
High ammonia levels can cause high histamines from leaky gut that high ammonia levels cause which can lead to mast cell degranulation which can result in mast cell activation syndrome or mastocytosis. To reduce histamines probiotics that reduce histamines may help. Avoid high histamine foods and fermented foods including most cheese. I have posted on healing the gut. It is very important to address that or you will not get your ammonia levels down. Also take probiotics that reduce zonulin levels, break down ammonia , decrease inflammation and increase T regulatory cells.
Detoxing any chemicals especially glyphosate and mercury is very important and I have posted on that also.
Determining the cause of your high ammonia levels is very important that helps pinpoint what is needed to help correct it.
Things that help the brain heal are mugwort or wormwood they are very similar chemically, sunflower seed lecithin, coconut oil, butyrate found in butter or ghee. Whey protein has glycoprotein that helps the brain heal, fights infection, and improves cell to cell communication. Mushrooms and oatmeal contain beta glucan which fights infection and helps the brain heal.
Reducing the bad gut bacteria and increasing the good is very important in order to reduce high ammonia levels. High ammonia levels can also be a result of gut dysbiosis especially if a person has too many sulfur digesting gut bacteria.
If we do not address high ammonia levels it can increase our estrogen levels and cause high T4 levels causing thyroid problems.
When we have high ammonia levels it causes our breathing to become slow and deep. This is to increase oxygen in the body because high ammonia levels cause a decrease in oxygen in the blood.
If the water we consume has too many nitrates or we get too many nitrite in our bodies it will increase ammonia levels and make a person suffer from oxygen deprivation from the effects on the read blood cells.
Consuming meat can increase the ammonia levels in the body. If too much meat is consumed it does not digest all the way and will ferment in the lower intestinal tract which causes ammonia to be produced.
Lactulose helps reduce ammonia levels in the intestines. It is fermented to lactate which binds to ammonia prevent it from entering the body. Betaine helps reduce ammonia by helping to recycle the enzymes in the body used to break down and convert proteins. Those with PEMT issues should be cautious with betaine (trimethylglycine). Onithine, arginine, yucca root, butyric acid, vitamin C which should be acquired from natural sources also help reduce ammonia. Manganese ad molybdenum help reduce ammonia in the body but should not be taken in high doses and should not be taken for more then a few times a week they are toxic in high levels in the body. Oligosaccharides and inulin help reduce ammonia in the body. Supporting the pathways that are involved with sulfation will help reduce ammonia levels. Magnesium chloride and P5P (pyidoxal 5 Phosphate).
High ammonia levels can cause other metabolic problems which can lead to high ketone levels which can inhibit many metabolic pathways.
Gingko Biloba helps repair the damage in the brain from high ammonia levels but should not be used for more then a couple of months. Many studies I have read show it starts damaging the liver after about two months. The first three days I took it, all heck broke loose because with the improve blood flow to my brain it started to heal. When it started to heal I got pain in my eyes and a bad ache in the front of my head. I continued taking it and after the third day I could feel my mental clarity coming back and I could focus better. Things with biacelin like skuletaria, plantaine herb and fleabane help repair the damage high ammonia causes. Mugwort, coconut oil and other medium chain fatty acids also help the brain to repair. Creatine levels can also become low but I did not have the money to supplement it so I do not know if it would have benefited me or not. Mugwort helps increase GABA. Rooibos tea also helps increase GABA and helps improve brain function.
A person with high ammonia levels may have problems oxidizing fats. Medium chain fatty acids can be readily used by the body which can help promote healing.
Because protein can cause ammonia levels to become low I added glycoproteins to my diet which helped me a lot. I got those from mushrooms and whey protein. We still need to consume some meat. When I had to consume meat I would take protease enzymes like papain, bromelain and beataine with my meal to help increase the break down of the protein thus preventing the build up of ammonia in the gut. I still had to address the metabolic issues.
Though I am not big on drugs rifaximin and neomycin taken together has been shown to help with gut dysbiosis. You will have to take probiotics to replace the good gut microbes. I have posting on taking those. You must do it with caution. Taking too much of one type or taking them too often can lead to gut dysbiosis putting you back to where you started.
High ammonia levels can inhibit autophagy which will contribute to lysosomal issues. This will increase ammonia levels even more. Nobiline and fulvic acid stimulate autophagy but should be used in moderation.
Another problem that can develop is high insulin levels and low glucose levels. I found snacking often helped keep the proteins in my body from being broken down. Most with high ammonia levels have protein deficiencies from the many metabolic issues. I have posted a summary of my notes on metabolic issues and information on things that may help. I would make small shakes with whey protein. You have to make sure they did not add phenylalanine in the whey protein or it will make you worse. Many whey protein shake mixes and proteins and phenylalanine will increase ammonia levels in the body. I also bought bee pollen because it is high in protein and micro nutrients. I added it to my shake. I grow purslaine which has almost all the nutrients the body needs and I added that to my shakes. If I did not have any of those things I would eat carrot sticks or a couple of nuts. I found walnuts helped me the most. Hazlenuts and and pecans helped me a lot but if I ate too many they gave me an upset stomach. Pecans helped me but I could only eat about five of them, anymore then that and I would become nauseated. Brazil nuts helped me a lot but they are high in selenium so I would not recommend more then four or so a day. By preventing our sugar levels from dropping it helps preserve our proteins in our bodies. Once your ammonia levels come down your insulin levels and glucose levels will normalize.
Addressing inflammation is very important because the high ammonia levels causes systematic inflammation. This leads to metabolic issues and can cause and imbalance in the immune system.
I posted on the vitamin D receptor. It becomes inhibited when we have high ammonia levels. Taking Vitamin D is useless unless you address the other receptors that work with the vitamin D receptor this is why vitamin K, vitamin E, Vitamin A and other oil soluble vitamins are important. They must be taken with an oil for the body to absorb them. I used cod liver oil that had lemon juice to prevent it from oxidizing. Cod liver oil contains many of those nutrients. Studies have found that synthetic vitamin C does more harm then good so use natural vitamin D if you take it. Also studies have shown doses of vitamin D over 5000 IU can have a negative impact on our health. Most studies show that taking vitamin D had benefits at first but as it build up in the body it would start negatively impacting our health. I pulsed the vitamin D I took to just maintain levels in my body. I did not take it until I had the other oil soluble vitamins needed.
Antioxidants help reduce the oxidative stress from the high ammonia levels but should be used in moderation once the oxidative stress has been reduced because we need oxidative stress for healing and nutrient absorption. If we reduce reactive oxygen species too low we start losing the ability to heal and to absorb nutrients. Those who have hepatitis need to avoid things that contain resveratrol like grape seed extract because resveratrol activates hepatitis virus. L-lysien, and helicase inhibitors found in the skin or red apples, self heal and lemon balm help with hepatitis and herpes type viruses.
Branched Chain Ammino Acids help restore metabolic pathways and stimulate healing. Whey protein in high in branched chain ammino acids. Though whey protein has to be digested and broken down taking the supplements will help the body more readily absorb them. Eggs are high in BCAAs but many with sulfation issues have problems with consuming high choline foods and may feel ill after eating them. Isoleucine, valine and leucine are the three branched chain ammino acids that could be taken in supplement form.
Calcium-D-Glucarate helps with the brain fog from high ammonia levels. It can be found in the area for urinary tract infections at most pharmacies. Calcium-D-Glucarate also reduces ammonia in the body produced from breaking down protein. Calcium-D-Glucarate also reduces estrogen levels in the body which is often times high in those with high ammonia levels. It also helps the body to reduce toxins.
Bicarbonate rich mineral water can help restore insulin levels and improve blood glucose levels. I could not afford it so I used a tablespoon of baking soda in a glass of water about three times a week and it helped me a lot.
Citrulline helps reduce ammonia in the body but should only be taken a few times a week. If citrulline is taken daily it should be low dose. The liver recycles it and it can build up in the body. If levels get too high it can start causing liver damage and damage to the red blood cells. Citrulline also helps those who have lysinuric protein intolarnce. Those with Lysinuric Protein intolerance may benefit from taking the bioavailable forms of proteins L-lysine, L-argine, L-carnitine and L-ornithine because they are deficient in them. Malabsorption issues can also cause a deficiency in these. If a person is experiencing this their bones may become brittle and they may experience hair loss.
The reason I do not recommend glutamine for those with high ammonia levels is because the liver is usually stressed and it can add to the liver stress.
This is a link to another blog post I did on high ammonia levels just in case I missed something here. https://iamajuicer.wordpress.com/2018/07/13/high-ammonia-levels-in-chronic-illness/
This is not medical advice, I am posting this for educational and informational purposes.
Boating, stinky flatulence that smell like rotten eggs, abdominal pain, constipation or diarrhea, Bile acid refux, headache, fatigue, muscle pain?
If we have to many Hydrogen Sulfate producing bacteria it can negatively impact our health. This occurs if we eat GMOs which are high in glyphosate and glufonisate or from taking antibiotics for too long. H2S inhibits butyrate oxidation in colonic epithelial cells which causes many health problems even psychosis. This also compromises the intestinal barrier function which causes an energy deficit.
Bismuth blocks H2S production ,Lactobacillus Plantarum and Saccharomyces Cerevisiae reduces Desulfovibrio , and other producers of H2S but there are others that produce it. Glycomacropeptide found in whey protein reduces Desulfovibrio bacteria. Lactoferrin and lactulose have been shown to reduce sulfur digesting bacteria. Galacto-oligosaccharide has been found to increase the good microbes that reduce the sulfur digesting and methane producing bacteria. Fiber also helps reduce sulfur digesting bacteria.
High H2S causes increased inflammation, increased Reactive Oxygen Species, and increase neutrophils in order to convert H2S to thiosulfate. If thiosulfate levels get too high in the blood it can cause a type of anemia called Heinz Body anemia. If a person is G6PD deficient this will make their symptoms much worse. Low thiosulfate levels in the urine could indicate low or inhibited Thiolmethyltransferase. High thiosulfate in the blood can also be caused by excess garlic consumption.
There are urine test for thiosulfate. High levels can indicate high H2S producing bacteria in the gut or it can indicate a deficiency in Thiolmethyltransferase. This can lead to CoQ10 deficiency and NADPH deficiency. This can also lead to inhibited sulfide oxidation which can impair fatty acid oxidation. This also causes glutathione to become depleted. You can also test the urine for H2S.
This can effect each differently depending on the level of H2S. They can either become constipated or get diarrhea. It can result in inflammatory bowel, pouchitis, halitosis, fatty acid deficiency from inhibited fatty acid oxidation and malabsorption. Lower H2S stimulates intestinal contraction and higher levels causes relaxation of the intestines.
High sulfur foods and meat increase H2S levels if the sulfur digesting gut microbiota are high. Most fats can also increase H2S and medium chain fatty acids are usually the best to consume when there are high sulfur digesting bacteria levels. Many of our processed foods contain sulfur as a preservative.
In a lactulose test if the levels of methane and hydrogen are not high then it is most likely dysbiosis caused by high sulfur digesting bacteria levels.
H2S cysteine activates GLUT increasing the transport of glucose into the cell. The excess hydrogen sulfide in the body will cause a person to develop sulfur intolerance. High sulfur foods will cause a reaction or they will become ill.
Polyphenols reduce the H2S producing bacteria. Wine and green tea in moderation can reduce the H2S producing bacteria.
The bacteria that can be found in the stool that are sulfur digesting and produce high levels of H2S are Desulfovibrio, Streptococcus, Enterococcus, and Prevotella.
Often times when a person has dysbiosis they will tell them to avoid starch but resistant starch reduces the H2S producing microbiota. Butyrate found in butter helps reduce the effects of high H2S. We can increase our Butyrate by taking a butyrate producing probiotic and making sure they get the starches and sugars they need.
High H2S levels increases Trimethylsulfonium in urine. High trimethylsulfonium levels can effect indolethylamine-N-methyl-transferease enzymes which is needed for the methylation of thiols. When this is effected It can effect hormones throughout the body. Glyphosate uses a sulfonium salt which could increase the negative effects to add gasoline to the fire glyphosate kills the microbiota that help keep sulfur digesting bacteria levels down.
H2S inhibits nNOS which causes nitric oxide production to become inhibited. This also increase NADPH levels and decreases NADH levels. Increasing BH4 counters the effects of H2S. L-arginine can increase Nitric oxide.
This is not medical advice I am posting this for informational and educational purposes.
This is not done I have a lot to add to it but I am kind of burned out. I will finis it later after I take a break.
Gastrointestinal motility and digestive enzymes.
This is mostly on bile but I wanted to cover the other areas of digestion before I covered bile.
Inhibited bile causes constipation. Frequent constipation increases Bilophila Wadsworthia which causes appendicitis. Trans-fats and saturated fats should be avoided when bile is inhibited or when constipated because they increase the growth of Bilophila Wadsworthia. Trans-fats should be avoided anyways they are very bad for our health.
Most know how digestion works but we need a refresher. When we chew our food it is mixed with saliva which has some digestive enzymes in it. When we swallow it is propelled down the esophogus where it is mixed with enzymes and gastric acid. The end result is called chyme. The chyme is pushed into the small intestine (duodenum). Many will ask me how to increase bile production but doing so could cause more harm then good. The problem causing the inhibited bile flow needs to be addressed. For example a dam can only hold so much water. If there is more water then the dam can hold it will flood over the top. Adding more water to the dam adds to the problems and could break the dam. When there is a blockage causing bile flow to be inhibited then increasing bile would be like adding water to a dam that is already overflowing. Most health issues mentioned in this article I have discussed elsewhere on my blog.
Peristalsis is the movement of food through the digestive system. It is the cause of the gurgling sound you hear when you are hungry or digesting food. Usually you cannot hear it. I do not know why but I and my friends experienced this. As we healed our digestive system you could feel the food moving and the sounds of digestions were very loud. As we healed they became quieter and quieter.
In the small intestine the food is combined with bile and pancreatic enzymes to break it down further and for nutrient absorption. The smooth muscle in the intestines are ring shaped and alternate between contracting and relaxing. This causes the food to move slow enough through the digestive tract for it to be broke down and for the nutrients to be absorbed. The neurons are stimulated by acetylcholine, and substance P to get them to contract. Nitric oxide, vasoactive peptide and ATP relax the muscles. This causes a motion that moves the food through the digestive tract and occurs the most in the small intestine. There are health issues that can cause a high acetylcholine and high substance P levels. High noradrenaline reduces substance P which can interfere with intestinal motility and can lead to constipation. High estrogen levels can inhibit substance P. High substance P levels can cause inflammation and lead to inflammatory bowel disease. There are health issues that can cause low acetylcholine and low serotonin levels. This also will cause a loss of motility leading to constipation. An imbalance in our immune system can cause bile flow to be inhibited. Estrogen inhibits bile flow and progesterone pormotes bile flow. This causes the liver and thyroids to become sluggish. This can also lead to interstitial cystitis. All the above mentioned things can inhibit receptors and throw hormones out of balance. If not addressed it will become chronic and start a cycle that is difficult to break and can take months to years to heal from.
If the gurgling in the gut is excessive and there is cramping, abdominal pain, and possibly nausea and vomiting it could indicate slow gut motility or a blockage. This can be caused by intestinal damage, hormone imbalance, inflammation in the intestines, dysbiosis, candida overgrowth, a deficiency in certain gut microbiota, slow or inhibited bile. This causes gas, bloating, and distention (inflammation in the gut). If we have a T cell imbalance or high B cell levels this can also cause it. If not addressed it can result in a decline of intestinal health our the health of the body. High histamines can cause inflammation that can cause blockage. We do not want to inhibit them because histamines are needed to stimulate gastric acid. It is best to work on reducing them.
If the digestive system is injured and we do not give it the things needed for it to heal then it loses the ability to sense nutrients and food that has entered it so it cannot respond to them. The longer it goes like this the worse it gets and the longer it will take to heal.
Bile acid is needed for the healthy brown fat to be produced. Bile acid is synthesized form cholesterol. Excess oxidative stress or inflammation in the liver can cause low cholesterol levels or can inhibit it’s production which would prevent the bodies ability to produce bile properly. This can also cause bile to become inhibited. When this happens bile production is reduced and it becomes thick. Phosphatydylcholine is needed to store bile in the gallbladder. I have found most who have problems with choline metabolism have benefited from sunflower seed oil. Excess oxidative stress can cause methionine and choline to become depleted. This inhibits the bodies ability to produce bile.
If you are deficient in certain enzymes often times there are plants you can consume that will helps digest foods that require those enzymes.
Lactase- (B-Galactosidase)- deficiency causes lactose intolerance. It breaks down Lactose down to glucose and galactose. Damage in the gut can cause it to not be reabsorbed. If this happens the gut microbiome will break it down causing gas and bloating. Those who are lactose intolerance will usually also be intolerant of FODMAPS until they get their gut healed enough to correct the malabsorption issues. Those who have malabsorption issues may benefit from taking Lactase when consuming dairy products. Saccharmyces Boulardii has been found to increase enzyme function in those with Lactose and FODMAP intolerance. If a person is lactose intolerant if they avoid dairy products while supplementing galactooligosaccaride for about a month, it has been found to increase Lactose metabolizing bacteria which prevents the bloating and ill effects of lactose. Also slowly introducing dairy into the diet a little at a time can increase the gut microbes that produce lactase. That would prevent a reaction to lactose also.
Alpha-galactosidase- helps break down digested fats and saccharides a deficiency causes lysosomal storage diseases. If defficient in Alpha-Galactosidase when eating fiber and high sulfur foods a person will develop gas and bloating. Those who have a deficiency in Alpha-galcatosidase will be intolerant to complex carbohydrates and may be intolerant to gluten. Beans will be a problem for a person lacking this. Infection can cause A-gal to be inhibited from the LPS produced. Inducing autophagy can testore A-gal. Tick born illness can cause autoimmune disease that can cause the body to make antibodies against a-gal. Balancing the immune system is very important. If not addressed it can lead to a sensitivity to meat.
Things that help with lysosomal storage disease should help with this. https://iamajuicer.wordpress.com/2018/08/21/things-that-may-help-with-lysosomals-storage-disease/
Sucrase- secreted in the small intestine. Catalyzes sucrose , fructose, and maltose. A deficiency will cause lactose intolerance, gas , bloating and diarrhea when things containing sucrose are consumed. Inflammation can cause it’s excretion into the small intestine to be inhibited. Sucrase is also known as invertase. Thyroid hormones and corticosterone stimulate sucrase and maltase. Inflammation and intestinal damage will decrease it’s secretion. High CD8 T cell levels inhibit Sucrase. I have posted on balancing T cells.
Amylases-work with other enzymes to break down polysaccharides. It is the major form of amylase found in humans and breaks down starch to maltose and dextran. It prevents bacteria from producing biofilms by breaking them down. It is secreted in saliva and from the pancreas.
endopeptidase (enterokinase) that breaks down proteins into smaller peptides (it is a protease) It is produced in the stomach and is one of the main digestive enzymes. It transforms trypsinogn into trypsin. procarboxypeptidase into the active enzyme carboxypeptidase which is involved in the maturation of proteins produced. Carboxypeptidase is also involved in enzyme and hormone production throughtout the body. It is produced in the mucus membrane showing the importance of restoring the health of the mucous membrane. This can result in protein and enzyme deficiencies in the body.
Trypsinogen- is the precursor form of trypsin it is found in pancreatic juice that is released in the small intestine. Trypsinogen is activated by the protease enteropeptidase which is produce by the mucus of the duodenum. Trypsin breaks down proteins to ammino acids.
Chymotrypsinogen- precursor for chymotrypsin. It is activated by trypsin.
Pancreatic Lipase- It is secreted into the small intestine in it’s completed form. But it only becomes effective in the presence of colipase which is a co-enzyme.
Phospholipase-converts lipids(fats) to phospholipids.
Lipase-breaks down triglycerides to fatty acids and glycerol. Deficiency causes a lack of fats needed by the body and fats in stools. Lipase also protect the body from parasites and pathogens. If deficienct a person will suffer from malabsorption. There are microbe derived lipases that have been shown to be effective for Lipase deficiency.
Na+ Taurocholate Cotransporting Polypeptide (NTCP) is used by the liver to extract BA returning to the lever through the portal vein. Should not be stimulated in those with cholestasis it can damage the liver. A deficiency causes muscle weakness. If it is inhbited bile salts can build up in the liver resulting in liver damage. This also results in an increase in blood levels of bile acids.
Pancreatic Polypeptide self-regulates pancreatic secretion activities. It’s secretion is increased from protein consumption, fasting, exercise, and is decreased by glucose and somatostatin. It can inhibit gallblader contractions and pancreatic exocrine secretion.
Pancreatic Elastase – help finish breaking down foods. If there is excess oxidative stress , inflammation or immune imbalance that effects the pancreas it can inhibit pancreatic enzyme secretion. They usually test for this enzyme in stool to see if the pancreas is functioning properly.
Most of these hormones are effected by our brain especially the hypothalamus. If we have endotonins, heavy metals , glyphosate or other toxins that effect the brain then our digestion will be effected which further effects our brains. The hormone imbalance causes mental issues. They can be corrected if you address what is causing the imbalance. Many will take medications, which only treat the symptoms. Most medications for those types of things effect digestive hormones adding to the problem. Then when a person starts correcting the problem their mental issues become worse because of the drugs they are taking and the body starting to function correctly will swing hormones in the other direction. When the digestive system is damaged our cells that produce hormones become less numerous. We must try and protect the so healing can begin. Also nerve cells become less numerous which makes our bodies digestive responses to be much lower. Regular and electric acupuncture have been shown to help restore normal hormone levels. Bile acid also regulates lipid and glucose homeostasis. If bile acid become inhibited Thyroxine (T4) levels increase and Tiiodothyronine (T3). Low T3 levels inhibits oxidation which is needed to use lipids and cholesterol in the body. This will cause low LDL levels and high HDL level. Low T3 levels inhibits the bodies ability to synthesize proteins. Insulin loses it’s ability to inhibit glucogenesis. This cause glycolysis to be inhibited. This also effects the heart and can cause heart palpitations. High T4 levels can cause a decrease in serotonin.
Ampulla of Vater blocakge– inflammation, oxalates, toxins, infection or damage in the body can lead to pancreatic enzymes building up causing the pancreas to digest itself.
If you have blockage inhibiting enzyme secretion I would not advice stimulating the secretion until the health problems causing the blockage have been addressed.
When we have metabolic issues, inflammation or any other of the health issues I have describe these enzymes can be effected. Especially if we have damage to our digestive system.
Serotonin – (5-HT) regulates gut motility. It is produced in the mucosa of the gut. It increases peristalsis (movement of food through digestive tract). It has been found to be low in those with inflammatory bowel diseases. A deficiency can cause gastroparisis and bile reflux. It also stimulates adenylyl cyclase which is involved in cell signaling throughout the body. Most drug agonist of the 5-HT receptors damage the liver and heart. Acupunture stimulates serotonin. There are some disorders which inhibits 5-HT from exiting the cells. This causes a build up in the cells and a person will be senstitive to 5-HT but would still have symptoms of 5-HT deficiency.
Motilin – triggered by fasting, and fatty foods. Controls peristalsis by stimulating smooth muscle contraction and relaxation to coordinate the movement of food through the digestive tract. The antibiotic erthromycin stimulates motilin. Motilin had been found to be low in those with inflammatory bowel diseases. Acupuncture increases motilin. Motilins effects are influenced by PH. Low PH motilin inhibits gastric motility at higher PH it stimulates gastrointestinal motility. Food intake slows the production of motilin. Insulin also inhibits the secretion of motilin.
Reflux can be cause by bile issues in two ways. If there is a blockage a person could experience bile acid reflux. If there is insufficient bile production the the acid from the chyme does not get neutralized by the bile and will cause acid reflux. L-taurine and betaine also known as TMG helps with bile production. Cysteine is also needed and taking NAC (N-acetylcysteine) about three times a week has been found to help. If it is taken more then that the benefits are lost.
Gastric Inhibitory Peptide – triggered by glucose and fatty foods. Decreases gastric emptying and stimulates the release of insulin. It promotes fat storage.
Vasoactive Peptide – increases blood flow to the gut, supplies eleyctrolytes to pancreatic enzymes and bile.
Guanylin – causes secretion of chloride , decreases absorption of water from the gut. It prevents the sodium levels from the body from getting too high by inhibiting salt absorption and by stimulating the secretion of bicarbonate and chloride.
Glucagon – glucagon supresses CYP7A1 which reduces bile production. This can lead to insulin resistance and glucose intolerance. Glucagon prevents blood sugar levels from getting too low. It is involved in gluconeogenesis which produces glucose form proteins.Glucagon also breaks down fat stores in the blood stream. Excess glucagon leads to diabetes and thrombosis.
Glucagon Like Protein-1 (GLP-1) Whey protein increases GLP-1, glucose also stimulates GLP-1. Slows down digestion. It increases the size and health of pancreatic B cells. Stimulates brain repair. It’s release is stimulated by TGR-5. GLP-1 is involved in appetite suppression and glucose homeostasis. Low levels causes glucose deficiency. Carbohydrates and elevated blood levels of proteins helps stimulate glucagon . If we are deficient in glucagon glycogen can build up in the livers. It brings down glycogen in the liver by breaking it down to produce glucose. Somatostatin inhibits glucagon production. Excess glucagon cause weight loss and deficiency causes weight gain. Fasting stimulates glucagon production.
Secretin- helps regulate water homeostasis in the body, helps regulate the PH of the small intestine by gastric acid. Secretin inhibits gastic acid production and stimulates the production of bicarbonate. Secretin also stimulates bile production. It is produced mainly in the mucosa of the small intestine and jejunum. It is release from the low ph caused by chyme entering the small intestine.
Secretin deficiency causes a loss of neural progenitor cells. Progenitor cells are similar to stem cells. Since secretin increases neural progenitor cells it helps with autism, motor coordination and improves memory. Secretin helps with asthma by acting as a bronchorelaxer. Secretin reduces symptoms of pancreatitits.
In order to function properly levels of cholecystokinin and insulin need to be normal. If they are dis-regulated it effects secretin levels. It also stimulates polyamines in the pancrease which is needed for cell growth. Polyamines also regulate ion channels including the NMDA recemptors, AMPA receptors and potassium channels. Excess polyamines can cause the blood brain barrier to become more porous. Showing the importance of secretin homeostasis. When H Pylori in in it’s pathogenic form it will cause a secretin deficiency. Secretin promotes the production of mucus. A decrease in secretin decreases the function of angiotensin 2. Secretin increases thirst. Secretin increases the feel good hormone oxytocin.
Now the bad if a person has bile blockage like cholestasis it can cause liver damage. I discuss things that can help with that at the end of this blog post. Secretin causes Zollinger-Ellison syndrome to worsen.
High levels of somatostatin inhibits secretin.
Cholecystokinin- stimulates the release of digestive enzymes and bile from the pancrease and bladder. Whey protein stimulates CCK. Fat intake also stimulates CCK. A deficiency in CCK causes malabsorption and can lead to Type 1 diabetes. Damage to the mucus membrane can cause a deficiency. This can also be caused by autoimmunity. This is where a dilemma occurs. High levels of bacteroidetes or high levels of methane producing bacteria can inhibit CCK. Protein stimulates CCK. I believe working on bile blockage and then once that is corrected increasing bile flow first to reduce the bacteroidetes levels and methane producing bacteria then adding protein into the diet once they are reduced would most likely correct the problem along with restoring the health of the mucus membrane.
Intrinsic Factor-important in the absorption of vitamin B12. Often times B12 deficiency is caused by a lack of the microbiota that produce B12 but is mistakenly attributed to and intrinsic factor deficiency.
Haptocorin-binds to B12 in our food protecting it from our gastric acid so it can survive the stomach. It is found in our saliva. This shows the importance of making sure we chew our food very well.
Gastrin- hormone that stimulates gastric acid secretion. It is released from the pariental cells in the stomach. It also aids in gastric motility. Elevated gastrin can cause hypergastrinaemia. Low levels can cause hypergstrinaemia. Infection can effect gastrin levels and so can histamines. Histamines are needed for Gastrin stimulation if histamine levels are too low the we will not produce enough stomach acid. If they are too high then we can get acid reflux. If someone is not producing enough acid then they most likely have low histamines and would benefit from fermented foods and aged meats which are high histamine.
Gastric inhibitory polypeptide- an inhibiting hormone of the secretin family. It stimulates insulin secretions based on how much glucose is present. It stimulates glucagon secretion and fat accumulation. It is found in intestinal mucus, small intestine, and jejunum of the gastrointestinal tract. Has many other functions throughout the body including bone growth.
Vasoactive intestinal peptide- serves functions throughout the body but relaxes smooth muscles in the trachea, gall bladder and stomach.
Bombesin- stimulates gastrin release from the pancrease. It also stimulates adrenal and pituitary hormones. It increases the thickness of the mucus membrane. It modulates the neural firing rate in the intestines so is involved with gastrointestinal motility.
Somatostatin reduces histamines which will reduce the gastric acid stimulating effects of histamine. In those with inflammatory bowel issues somatostatin in usually very high. Acupuncture has been shown to reduce somatostatin. Most lactobacillus bacteria will reduce somatostatin. Somatostatin prevents the over production of certain hormones in the body. If there is excess somatistatin it will inhibit hormones especially insulin. Somatostatin inhibits glucose and fat absorption. It inhibits insulin and glucagon in the liver. It stimulates muscle contractions in the intestines speedingup transit times. Protein stimulates somatostatin.
Cholecystokinin, glucagon-like-peptide, gastrin-releasing peptide stimulate somatostatin.
Substance P, insulin, pancreatic polypeptide, and opioids inhibit somatostatin.
Excess somatostatin inhibits bone growth, disrupts sleep, and increases dopamine, norepinephrin and epinephrine.
High levels somatostatin will cause high thyroid hormone levels because it inhibits thyroid stimulating hormone which senses hormone levels and shuts them down if they get too high. This causes weight loss no matter how much a person consumes , flushing or hot flashes, and heart palpitations.
Insulin- breaks down blood glucose. Excess insulin can lead to cancer and many other health problems. Glycoproteins increase insulin. Whey protein increases insulin and reduces blood glucose levels. This is one that confuses me and makes me believe those with inflammatory bile have blockages. Many with inflammatory bowel have high insulin levels which stimulates CYP7A1 which should increase bile production and still they have low bile flow and often times CYP7A1 levels are low. It may be that inflammation is inhibiting the receptor.
Ghrelin-triggered during hunger or calorie restriction. Stimulates appetite. Whey proteins increases Ghrelin. Ghrelin is involved with gastric emptying.
Deacyl-ghrelin – DAG decreases gastric emptying, induces postprandial fullness and improves insulin sensitivity.
Peptide YY- secreted after eating it cancels out the effects of ghrelin.
Pheonixin – expressed in the hypothalamus, it stimulates appetite.
Peptide YY- produced in the gut where short chain fatty acids are produced. Proprionate and butyrate increase expression of Peptide YY. It reduces appetite. It is stimulated from the consumption of fiber from fruits and vegetagles. It also reduces pancreatic secretion.
Leptin – regulates body fat.
Bile stimulates the secretion of electrolytes and water into the intestines which stimulates digestion. Biles acid stimulates the release of 5-HT. Those with inflammatory bowel diseases have been found to have high levels of bile acids Taurocholic Lithocholic Acid, Taurocholic acid and Taurocholic Deoxycholate.
Bile acid promotes liver regeneration by activiating BA recperors Farnesoid X receptor and G-Protein-coupled BA receptor1 (GPBAR1 or TGR5) . This shows the importance of bile acid homeostasis. Proper bile acid production is very important for maintaining a balanced gut microbiome.
Inhibited bile can cause gall stones and lead to liver and kidney disease.
There are many things that can inhibit bile production. Inflammation, toxins, metabolic issues, especially inhibited receptors involved with bile production. Infections can cause bile to become inhibited and so can the endotoxins they produce. If we develop leaky gut the LPS (lipopolysaccharide) which is produced by pathogens and our commensals can enter the blood stream. Our microbiome uses LPS to communicate with our bodies but when it gets into the blood stream it causes the same problems a pathogen would. We also have commensal microbes that break down LPS antibiotics and farm chemicals especially glyphosate and glufonisate can kill our gut microbiome. They modulate most organs in our bodies including our brains. They even modulate some of our genes. Without them we will not have an immune system and we cannot restore the body to homeostasis. Metabolic issues can cause acidosis or alkalosis which will also interfere with the propper function of our organs and causes a lot of damage which progresses and becomes more severe if the problems causing them are not addressed. Infection can also change the PH of the body. There is a myth that alkalizing the body will make us healthier. This is not true but it promotes things that are usually commensal like Candida and H Pylori to turn pathogenic. If a person has candida and H Pylori problems they most likely have high ammonia levels. This causes BH4 to become depleted increasing the ammonia levels even more. If not addressed they will start having problems eating high protein foods and high sulfur foods. Another thing that can cause blockage that effects bile flow is oxalates. They can be produced endogenously or we can get them exogenously. If we have leaky gut oxalates that are usually excreted in our feces can easily enter our blood stream. Also many will consume a lot of raw greens. Spinach and Kale are very high oxalate and can increase oxalates in the body. We have oxalate degrading microbiota and if antibiotics or farm chemicals in our food kills them our oxalate levels can indrease. I have posted on my blog on how to deal with those issues.
Bile, an aqueous solution produced and secreted by the liver, consists mainly of bile salts, phospholipids, cholesterol, conjugated bilirubin, electrolytes, and water.The liver cells are mostly hepatocytes. Bile travels through the liver in a series of ducts, eventually exiting through the common hepatic duct. Bile flows through this duct into the gallbladder where it is concentrated and stored. When stimulated by the hormone cholecystokinin (CCK), the gallbladder contracts, pushing bile through the cystic duct and into the common bile duct. CCK is usually deficient in those with inflammatory bowel disease. Cholecystokinin is released after a meal is consumed. It is stimulated by the production of stomach acid. It is secreted along with secretin. Secretin stimulates bicarbonate in response to the acid from the chyme that enters the small intestin, and It stimulates pancreatic enzymes and forces bile into the small intestine. If we do not produce enough stomach acid then Cholecystokinin is not released and our food will sit in our stomach and ferment. This causes and increase of either methane producing bacteria or sulfur digesting bacteria. Methane and sulfur digesting bacteria cause lower motility in the intestines slowly digestion even more. Bile is needed to stimulate the Vitamin D Receptor.
Simultaneously, the sphincter of Oddi relaxes, permitting bile to enter the duodenal lumen. Lumen is the space in a tubular shape. The hormone secretin also plays an important role in the flow of bile into the small intestine. By stimulating biliary and pancreatic ductular cells to secrete bicarbonate and water in response to the presence of acid in the duodenum, secretin effectively expands the volume of bile entering the duodenum. In the small intestine, bile acids facilitates lipid digestion and absorption. Bile is needed to absorb many nutrients especially lipid (fat) soluble vitamins like Vitamin D, Vitamin E, , Vitamin A and Vitamin K. Only approximately 5% of these bile acids are eventually excreted. The majority of bile acids are efficiently reabsorbed from the ileum, secreted into the portal venous system, and returned to the liver in a process known as enterohepatic recirculation. Ileum is the final section of the small intestine.
If bile becomes inhibited it inhibits the vitamin D receptor further inhibiting bile production and adding to the problem because cholesterol production and conversion becomes inhibited. This will make bile become sludgy leading to low bile flow which will increase estrogen levels and cause high unbound copper levels in the blood. Bitter herbs increase bile flow but the vitamin D receptor has to be addressed along with balancing the microbiome in the gut and healing the intestinal tract. Inflammation needs to be reduced , and prevent thrombosis. There are many things that can block the portal vein. The above mentioned things and also thrombosis can cause it. Thrombosis is blood clotting.
This is why I often times recommend grape seed extract and bacopa to people. It prevents thrombosis. Inflammation because endotoxins can cause thrombosis. Grape seed extract and bacopa reduce inflammation and prevent thrombosis. If thrombosis occurs in the portal vein it will effect the liver, pancrease, and digestive system. This causes pain in the stomach, bloating, inflammation, pancreatic pain, pain in the gallbladder. This can lead to death. Bile flow will become inhibited speeding up the progression of portal vein thrombosis. Those with hepatitis need to use hawthorne or something else. Resveratrol activates hepatitis.
portal vein thrombosis
gastrointestinal symptoms (ex: abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea), fever and constitutional symptoms (ex: fatigue, malaise, and anorexia/weight loss) . We can also find hepatomegaly with elevated liver enzymes and jaundice , when associated with liver abscess or cholangitis . Laboratory tests usually demonstrate elevated markers of inflammation 
If not addressed in time it can lead to portal hypertension. This results in brain swelling, abdominal swelling . Confusion, anemia and low white blood cell count.
How Bile is Formed.
Bile is produced by hepatocytes, which is then modified by the cholangiocytes lining the bile ducts. The production and secretion of bile require active transport systems within hepatocytes and cholangiocytes in addition to a structurally and functionally intact biliary tree. If this becomes blocked by stones from poor bile production, oxalates or infection a person can develop choledocholithiasis. This will cause problems with the gall bladder, liver, kidneys and digestion. This can also lead pancreatic problems. The symptoms are upper abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting.
Initially, hepatocytes produce bile by secreting conjugated bilirubin, bile salts, cholesterol, phospholipids, proteins, ions, and water into their canaliculi (thin tubules between adjacent hepatocytes that eventually join to form bile ducts). Unconjugated bile is when heme is released during red blood cell break down, the remainder is converted to unconjugated hemoglobin. This form of bilirubin travels from the blood stream to the liver. If the liver cannot convert unconjugated to conjugated it will build up in the blood and a person will develop a yellow like glow. It is normally excreted through the intestines. If there is a rapid destruction of blood cells this can also happen. Infections, toxins, excess vitmin C and excess iron can cause the red blood cells to break down. Conjugated bilirubin is water soluble and if there is a blockage it will be excreted in the urine. Testing for high bilirubin in the urine can help identify blockage.
The canalicular membrane of the hepatocyte is the main bile secretory apparatus which contains the intracellular organelles, the cytoskeleton of the hepatocyte and carrier proteins. Fluctuations in cytosolic and organelle Ca2+ following glucagon or epinephrine stimulation play a major role in hepatic control of glucose production, bile fluid movement and excretion, fatty acid, amino acid and xenobiotic metabolism, protein synthesis and secretion, cell cycle and cell proliferation, among other functions. I discussed in some of my other post about autophagy. It can help issues like this.
The carrier proteins in the canalicular membrane transport bile acid and ions. Transporter proteins found within the canalicular membrane use energy to secrete molecules into bile against concentration gradients. The citric acid cycle is involved in providing the energy for this to occur. Mitochondrial disfunction and a loss of ATP can also interfere with this process. If this occurs cholestasis can occur causing a backup of bile and it can enter the blood stream. If the problem causing the obstruction is not addressed it can lead to fibrosis and vanishing bile duct syndrome. Symptoms are frequent itchy skin, elevated triglycerides, fat growths that appear under the skin. Drugs are often times the cause especially fluorquinolones.
Through this active transport, osmotic and electrochemical gradients are formed. When conjugated bile salts enter the canaliculus, water follows by osmosis. The electrochemical gradient allows for the passive diffusion of inorganic ions such as sodium. The most significant promoter of bile formation is the passage of conjugated bile salts into the biliary canaliculus. The total bile flow in a day is approximately 600 ml, of which 75% is derived from the hepatocyte, and 25% is from the cholangiocytes. Approximately half of the hepatocyte component of bile flow (about 225 ml per day) is bile salt-dependent and the remaining half bile salt independent. Bile Salts are formed in the body by combining bile acids and alcohol sulfates. Bile acid is combined with glycine or taurine to form bile salts. This is a good article explaining how to increase bile salts and the benefits of doing so. Taurine has been found to increase sulfur digesting bacteria which would increase H2S which can inhibit bile production. The is most likely why the western diet causes health problems it is high in taurine.
Osmotically active solutes such as glutathione and bicarbonate promote bile salt independent bile flow. Canaliculi empty bile into ductules or cholangioles or canals of Hering. The ductules connect with interlobular bile ducts, which are accompanied by branches of the portal vein and hepatic artery forming portal triads. Bile is subsequently modified by ductular epithelial cells as it passes through the biliary tree. These cells, known as cholangiocytes, dilute and alkalinize the bile through hormone-regulated absorptive and secretory processes. The hormones are scecretin, acetycholine, ATP, and bombesin. So you can see the importance of making sure we address any issues we have that can inhibit acetylcholine production or cause ATP to become depleted. Issues with glycolysis can cause a loss of ATP. I do not know much about increasing ATP except that creatine helps increase ATP production.
The cholangiocytes have receptors which modulate the bicarbonate-rich ductular bile flow, which is regulated by hormones. These receptors include receptors for secretin which regulates water homeostasis, somatostatin decreases stomach acid production, cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance Regulator (CFTR) not sure how to describe this one. It is kind of an ion channel/ABC transporter and chloride-bicarbonate exchanger this is where electrolytes are important. These are listed in order of importance sodium, calcium, magnesium and postassium .
For example, when secretin stimulates receptors in the cholangiocyte, a cascade is initiated which activates the CFTR chloride channel and allows the exchange of bicarbonate for chloride. In contrast, somatostatin inhibits the cAMP synthesis within the cholangiocytes causing the opposite effect. While bombesin, vasoactive intestinal polypeptide, acetylcholine, and secretin enhances bile flow, somatostatin, gastrin, insulin, and endothelin (endothelin are involved in electrolyte homeostasis) inhibit the flow. I do not have enough experience with reducing insulin levels and had to have a friend help me with that on facebook. Some metabolic disorders can cause low glucose levels and high insulin levels. It can be corrected but takes someone who is knowledgeable.
Bile Acids Cholesterol catabolism by hepatocytes results in the synthesis of the 2 major primary bile acids, cholic acid, and chenodeoxycholic acid. This process involves multiple steps, with cholesterol 7alpha-hydroxylase (CYP7A1) acting as the rate-limiting enzyme. It is effected by steroid hormones, inflammatory cytokines, insulin and growth factors.
Primary bile acids undergo dehydroxylation by bacteria in the small intestine, forming the secondary bile acids deoxycholic acid and lithocholic acid, respectively. Deoxycholic acid breaks down fats. High protein diet increases deoxycholic acid. Excess lithocholic acid speeds up aging and is carcinogenic. Eating lost of fiber reduces lithocholic acid. Artichoke reduces lithocholic acid and stimulates bile production. If the vitamin D receptor is inhibited then lithocholic acid cannot be detoxed by the body.
Both primary and secondary bile acids are conjugated by the liver with an amino acid, either glycine or taurine. Conjugated bile acids are known as bile salts. Bile salts inhibit cholesterol 7alpha-hydroxylase (CYP7A1) , decreasing the synthesis of bile acids. Despite the increased water solubility of bile salts, they are amphipathic molecules overall (has both hydrophobic and hydropholic molecules). This critical property allows them to effectively emulsify lipids and form micelles with the products of lipid digestion. The bile acid pool is maintained via mainly the enterohepatic circulation and to a small extent (about 5%) by hepatic synthesis of bile acids, as long as the daily fecal loss of bile acids do not exceed 20% of the pool. Micelles help with fat absorption.
Venous blood from the ileum goes straight into the portal vein, and hence through the sinusoids of the liver. Hepatocytes extract bile acids very efficiently from sinusoidal blood, and little escapes the healthy liver into systemic circulation. Bile acids are then transported across the hepatocytes to be resecreted into canaliculi. The net effect of this enterohepatic recirculation is that each bile salt molecule is reused about 20 times, often two or three times during a single digestive phase. When the digestive system is healthy bile gets easily reabsorbed.
Chenodeoxy cholic Acid and Cholic Acid are the primary bile acids produced. From Chenodeoxy cholic Acid many other bile acids are produced.
Bile acid gets reabsorbed and returned to the liver to be recycled. There are secondary bile acids produced in our digestive tract by our gut bacteria. Our microbiome deconjugates bile. Deoxcycholic Acid is a secondary bile acid produced by our microbiome. It is recycled by the body and is conjugated with glycine or taurine and circulated with primary bile acids. It constitutes about 20% of biles acids.
Lithocholic Acid is a secondary bile acid. It is conjugated with glycine or taurine and sulfated producing sulfolithocholylglycine or sulfolithocholyltaurine. Lithocholic Acid is toxic and can destroy the liver. Sulfation is an important part of detoxing deconjugated bile acids. Sulfation of bile acids decreases their absorption rate which prevent them from reentering the liver so when sulfation is functioning properly then the body can easily detox the toxic bile. Sulfation can become inhibited by metabolic issues, high sulfur digesting bacteria raising hydrogen sulfide and sulfide levels in the body. If there are problems with the CBS or BH4 pathways sulfation can be effected. The SULT genes are effected by our hormones. A change in our gut bacteria, toxins, glyphosate, vaccine injury, infections, leaky gut and many other things can change our hormone levels. This can inhibit the ability for the liver to sulfate bile acids. The pregnane X receptor also know as the xenobiotic sensing nuclear receptor has been found to be inhibited in those with bile blockage disorders. Inhibited PXR can inhibit SULT genes. Those with upregulated PXR have been found to be protected from the negative effects of LCA. Constitutive Androstane Receptor (CAR) is involved in sensing and removing endobiotic, and xenobiotic substances. It detoxes foreign substances and drugs. It has be found to protect form LCA when upregulated by inducing SULT genes. CAR is also involved in energy homeostasis. Fasting can induce CAR. Vitamin D receptor, Liver X receptor, and Farnesoid X receptor are also involved in sulfation and upregulation hve been found to protect from LCA. Most of those receptors have been found to be inhibited in those with bile blockage. Showing the importance of supporting their proper function.
When there is an obstruction biles acid can spill over into the blood stream through OST a and b transporters and also can enter the blood through Multidrug Resistance-associated proteins M1M3,M4 and M6. When there is an obstruction urinary excretion of bile is the primary route of bile removal. If this continues for an extended period of time it can lead to bladder irritation from the caustic effects of the bile acid to the bladder. Constipation form inhibited bile flow is common in interstitial cystitis. This can also take place through the organic acisd transporter.
This is an interesting article on bile acid blockage. https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamainternalmedicine/fullarticle/1105662
When Lithocholic Acid cannot be sulfated it remains toxic. Lithocholic Acid is highly carcinogenic and causes cancer. High Lithocholic Acid levels inhibits cortisone production this can cause many health issues including chronic fatigue.
Cellulose has been found to increase the mucus membrane which improves bile flow.
Not sure where to go with this information but took note of it. High nitrogen levels increases bile acid oxidation, high hydrogen levels inhibits bile acid oxidation.
Medium Chain Fatty Acids stimulate bile production which decreases bacteroides and actinobacteria which has been found to be high in those with dysbiosis and inflammatory bowel disease. Low bile acid production increases levels of microbes that produce potent LPS. Tempo a product made from fermented soy has been shown to reduce bacteriodes and inhibit our microbes ability to produce bile salt hydroxolase which inhibits FXR receptor. By decreasing our microbes bile salt hydrolase bile production is restore which reduces the bacteria that inhibit bile flow. If you try this route you would want to use organic because the BT-Toxin and glyphosate found in soy products destroy the gut and alter our gut microbiome causing an increase in microbiota that have a negative impact on our health. The FXR receptor is responsible for homeostasis throughout the body. If the FXR receptor is inhibited a person will develop diabetes, dislipademia, cancer, metabolic disorders, atherosclerosis and renal diseases.
If a person has cholestasis stimulating bile will damage the liver and cause excess bile to enter the blood causing many other health problems. If a person has cholestasis they should not stimulate bile production. Elevated bile production is a sign and symptom of sepsis which indicates cholestasis.
Things that can cause cholestasis is drugs, infection, metabolic issues, gene issues, gut dysbiosis,inflammatory bowel diseases,hormone imblance, T cell imbalcance, excessive inflammation, toxins and many other things. If a person has cholestasis they will have dark colored urine and light colored stools. Pain in the abdomine, excessive itching, fatigue and nausea. In more severe cases the skin and eyes my get a yellow color.
You have to address the cause of cholestasis if it is drug induced then you may have to discontinue the use of the drug, address infection and inflammation, correct metabolic issues and gene issues. Work on reducing gall stones and oxalate stones.
Some things found to help with bile blockage. Gaur Gum, milk thistle, dandelion, vitamin K, Vit D, Calcium but we must make sure we get the right type, sunflower seed lecithen, antioxidants but do not over use homeostasis is the goal. We need some oxidative stress if we completely disable ROS we will defeat the purpose. Radishes have been shown to help with bile blockage. Cod liver oil helps with bile blockage, medium chain fatty acids help with bile blockage, curcumin helps with bile blockage but after a while it should be pulsed because it chelates iron from the body and can cause anemia. Activated charcoal helps with cholestasis but should not be taken close to meals or we will lose nutrients. Soaking in epsom salt and then getting far infrared, sunlight or halogen light gives us magnesium sulfate which helps with cholestasis. If it is caused by gall stones apple juice and apple cider vinegar has been found to reduce gall stones. Lemon juice has been found to reduce gall stones. I had to put lemon juice in water because straight lemon juice was to strong for me and made my stomach hurt. Artichoke has been found to reduce gall stones. We need a variety in our diets, eating poorly can cause bile stones. The more processed foods we eat the better our chances of getting them are. Losing weight too quickly can also cause gall stones. Low HDL levels can cause gall stones that can be caused by hormone imbalances especially high estrogen levels. Citrus fruits reduce gall stones especially the white part of the fruit. Rosemary has been shown to reduce gall stones. Pear juice has also been found to dissolve gall stones. Beet root, carrots and cucumber has been found to reduce gall stones. Drinking excess amounts of soda pop and consuming excess amount of processed sugar can cause gall stones and oxalate stones.
Excess vitamin C can cause oxalates but normal levels help dissolve oxalates. High meat consumption increases oxalates, excessive salt consumption can cause high oxalates, soda pop contains phosphoric acid which increases oxalates and causes kidney stones. Excess vitamin D intake can cause oxlates most do not recommend get more then 5000 IU of vitamin D and many say 60 IU is enough. High meat consumption can decrease citrate in the body, citrate prevents oxalates. If a person take magnesium citrate it should not be taken often because the body recycles citrate and it can build up in the body causing liver and kidney damage. If a person has metabolic issues that cause acidosis it can lead to oxalates, I post on addressing acidosis. DNA damage from oxidative stress or health issues can cause high uric acid levels which can increase oxalates. Omega 3 oils help reduce oxalates. Celery, carrots, pomegranate, watermelon, pumpkin seed oil. Helps reduce oxalates. Horsetail herb helped me a lot but has an alkaloid that can build up in the body so should not be taken more then three times a week. Citric acid not to be confused with vitamin C reduces oxalates this is why lemon is very good for reducing oxalates. Bear berry and uva ursa contain berberine which reduces oxalates and uric acid. Stinging nettles reduces oxalates and toxins that can cause oxalates. Stay hydrated but avoid water that has been chlorinated or fluorinated it is toxic an increases oxalates.
High Trymethylamines produced from our microbiome breaking down choline and carnetine is converted by Flavon Mono-Oxygenase 3 to Trymethylamine-N-Oxide. TMAO inhibits bile production. Olive oil has been found to prevent our gut microbiome from producing Trymethylamines.
Crushed flax seed and oat haul increases bile flow.
If we do not correct the health issues causing our bile receptors to be inhbited it can lead to Non Alcohol Fatty Liver Disease.
Balancing the immune system
Healing the gut is very important.
information on our gut microbiome.
Things that may help with infections.
Things that can break down scare tissue in the body is autophagy which I have posted on and HSP70 which is another thing I have posted on. Serrapeptase has been shown to break down calcium deposits and aggregates in the body. It must be used with caution. High dosage can start breaking down tissue in the body but low dose will reduce inflammation and help the body heal.
Inflammation and toxins is why so many are ill now days.
This is not medical advice I am posting this for educational and informational purposes.
Always remember homeostasis is the goal.
This is not finished but I need to work on other things and I figure this will give people a good foundation to research and build on.
Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) is usually used when referring to pathogens. Our commensal microbes produce LPS which our body uses to identify them. Normally they are not harmful to the body and some of the other commensal consume LPS keeping levels down. But a loss of those commensal or leaky gut can cause LPS to enter our blood streams which can lead to sepsis so it is very important to protect and maintain the health of our guts.
If we develop leaky gut and do not correct it toxins like mercury that can be in our food and usually will get excreted can now easily enter the blood stream and a person may develop high levels of mercury, cadmium or other toxins in the body.
If you have leaky gut oxalates that usually get excreted can enter the body. It is very important to heal the gut because oxalates are very damaging to the body. Calcium will bond with oxalates preventing them from being absorb and is why if a person is lactose intolerant they need to work on correcting it because milk with meals would help prevent that. Some calcium supplements are not good for you so if you decide to take that route make sure you do your research. Once oxalates build up in your body it prevents the gut from healing so it is very important to reduce oxalate levels. I have posted on reducing oxalates.
There are 2 components to the intestinal barrier. Intrinsic barrier and extrinsic barrier.
Intrinsic barrier is composed of the epithelial cells lining the digestive tube and tight junctions that tie them together.
Our gut bacteria maintain the health of our gut but damage to our gut can inhibit FUT2 production. Our gut microbiome cannot get established if we are deficient in FUT2. Lactobacillus Casei increases FUT2 production by inducing ERK/JNK. Inducing ERK/JNK stimulates FUT2. Nitric Oxide induces ERK/JNK, arginine rasises NO levels. Hypoxia induces ERK/JNK. Interleukin 10 inhibits FUT2 so a person may want to be cautious when taking probiotics that stimulate IL-10. Lactobacillus species of microbiotia stimulate IL-22 especially L Johnsii. IL-22 stimulates FUT2 secretion.
Extrinsic barrier consist of secretions and other other influences like microbes that influences the epithelial layer but are not physically part of the epithelium cells and maintain their barrier function.
Intrinsic Intestinal Barrier.
The gut is lined by sheets of epithelial cells that define the structure of the mucosa they are tied together by tight junctions, which paracellular spaces and thereby establishing the basic gastrointestinal barrier. Paracellular spaces are were nutrients are transported into the blood stream and toxins can be transported to the intestines for removal. Toxins and microbes that are able to breach this barrier have unimpeded access to the circulatory system. The tight junction layer and the mucus membrane for the most part prevents this from happening when healthy. Some cells in the epithelial are not effected by acid but others do not have the protection so count on the mucus membrane to protect them.
Mucus that coats the entire epithelium. Hormones and cytokines that regulate the function of our digestive system and maintain digestive health. Our gut microbiome are a part of the extrinsic barrier. They reside in the mucus membrane.
Tight junctions encircle the epithelial cells and are an important part of the intrinsic layer. Their permeability is regulated by zonulin.
Tight junction controls the equilibrium between tolerance and immunity to non-self antigens. It is involved in macromolecular transport and tolerance and immune balance. If the tight junction layer becomes too porous a person may develop autoimmunity and their bodies immune system will turn on the body and start causing autoimmune disorders. A person will develop food allergies and food intolerances. The longer this goes without being addressed the more a persons health will decline. They will develop many metabolic, genetic and immune dysfunctions. Many things can damage this vaccines have been shown to raise B cell levels which causes the tight junction layer to become more porous. BT Toxins in GMOs have been shown to cause the body to react in a way that the tight junction layer becomes more porous. Many farm chemical cause it to become more porous especially glyphosate and glufonisate cause it to become more porous. Stress and trauma can also cause the tight junction layer to become more porous.
Zonulin is the only intercellular modulator of the tight junctions. If zonulin becomes over expressed the gut becomes more porous leading to leaky gut. It is involved in the transport of macromolecules and in balance between tolerance and immune response balance. If zonulin becomes deregulated it can cause inflammatory bowel, anemia, systematic inflammation, red sore areas on the skin known as Sweet’s syndrome that can eventually develop into blisters that eventually turn ulcerative which is known as Pyoderma Gangrenosum. They can develop swelling and sores in the mouth. The eyes can become red sore and inflamed. This condition is called sceritis it can lead to uveitis which effects the iris and can lead to blindness. Bones may thin and become brittle. Oxalates will develop causing stone formation this can also effect the liver. Not only can it cause endogenous oxalates to be produced but now oxalates consumed in our foods that are normally excreted can readily enter the body. Gall stones may form because bile production and pancreatic enzymes become inhibited and a person can develop chronic diarrhea, constipation or alternate between the two.
When the bile is inhibited it is called Primary Schlerosing Cholangitis. From food particles and toxins entering the blood stream a person could start having excessive blood clotting. A person will start developing nutrient deficiencies from being unable to absorb and break down nutrients properly. A person will eventually develop high histamines if this continues they may develop asthma, they can start developing sarcoidosis throughout the body. Mast Cells can start to degranulate leading to mastocytosis or mast cell activation syndrome. This effects our immune system as you will see below. It can lead to diabetes, heart disease and many other chronic illnesses. It can also lead to obesity or anorexia depending on how the person has been effected.
In order to restore zonulin levels to normal the genetic, metabolic, oxidative stress, changes in ph for example if you have developed acidosis or alkalosis it will have to be addressed along with infections that come along with our immune system being disabled. I have posted on most of those issues and correcting them. There are three isoforms of zonulin. ZO- 1 , ZO-2 and ZO-3.
When we get an infection it is a sign we are lacking a nutrient or gut microbe that protects us. The infection produces lipopolysaccharide (LPS) which stimulates zonulin making our guts more porous. Also antibiotics can kill the butyrate producing gut bacteria which makes our gut more porous. Butyrate keeps many things at homeostasis. We cannot restore normal zonulin levels if we do not replace the butyrate producing bacteria and feed them with fiber, oligosaccharides, galactosaccharides, and fructooligosaccharides. The lower the diversity of our gut microbes the higher our zonulin levels will be showing that our digestive system needs feedback from a variety of microbes to function properly.
The fun part of all of this is they will tell you all this in in your head until you are so ill it will take months or years to heal. In the mean time they will still continue to treat the symptoms instead of the cause. It is a common theme with allopathic medicine. I have seen this with naturopathic also but for the most part naturopaths treat the cause and not the symptoms.
Things that can reduce zonulin is meditating, if you have experienced trauma work very heard to move forward. It is difficult not to look back but constantly looking back causes stress and can increase zonulin. Anger increases zonulin so try to learn to deal with frustration and bad situations in a calm way , the calmer we are the lower our zonulin levels will be.
Replace the butyric acid producing bacteria I listed many microbes that produce it if you search my blog.
Inflammation and immune dis-regulation and can increase zonulin so the microbes that increase T regulatory cells and inflammation will reduce zonulin. If your immune system has been disabled then microbiome that stimulates IL-10 will help restore immune function.
High LPS levels will increase zonulin so we need the gut microbes that reduce LPS. Studies have shown the higher our guts diversity the less ZO-1 is express which prevents leaky gut and inflammation.
Under normal conditions things with gliadin , glutin and lactose will not effect a healthy gut but increase zonulin when the mucus membrane is damaged.
There are many molecules that interact with each other to maintain the Zonulin layer and the tight junction layer.
Occludin plays a role in tight junction maintainence and assembly which is regulated by phosporylation of serine, threonine, and tyrosine risidues. It is important for maintaining TJ stability and function. Loss of occludin can lead to leaky gut, inflammatory bowel, and hyperplasia most likely from the inflammation. Occludin also regulates cell survival or death through the intrinsic system. It is important in receiving and transmitting cell survival signals. Occludin has a strong inhibitory effect on cancer. Loss of Occludin leads to cell death.
If Phosphorylation of tyrosine, threonine and serine residues is inhibited it reduces occludins interaction with zonulin. Dephosphorylation of ser/thr residues and poor phosphorylation of tyr residues causes a reduction in occludins interaction with ZO-1 leading to it’s seperation from the junctional complex and TJ disruption. It also leads to excess ROS production which increases gut permeability. Inflammation reduces occludin levels. Endotoxins also reduce occludin. Another function of occludin is in modulating the TJ response to cytokines to protect and heal the tight junction. Occludin plays an active role in cellular location of caveolin-1. Caveolin-1 is required for cytokine induced TJ barrier changes, where it is required for TJ remodeling. So addressing endotoxins, high B cell or T cell levels and reducing inflammation is very important for preserving occludin. Many of our commensals that increase T regulatory cells balance our immune system which would restore proper T and B cell levels. Many of our commensal microbes reduce inflammation and reduce LPS (endotoxins). I have posted on my blog which of those accomplish these things. TNF-a is involved in caveiolinn-1 mediated internalization of occludin which increases occludin, alleviating cytokine induced gut permeability. This can be induced by TNF-a which is an inflammatory cytokine.
The mucus membrane is thin in most inflammatory bowel diseases but is thick in Chron’s disease which I have not researched much on. Inflammtion usually causes the globin which are the mucin secreting cells to become depleted but for some reason this does not happen in Chron’s disease.
All these genes listed below are negatively effected by leaky gut. It is very important to reduce inflammation and work on getting the gut healed to restore the mucous membrane. Damage to the digestive system and mucus membrane causes many genes to become dis-regulated. MUC2 gene is the major gene responsible for the secretion of gel-forming mucin in the intestinal tract. It coats the endothelial surface protecting it from inflammation,chemicals, damage and infection. There are 20 MUC genes. There are many mucin categories that are enriched with proline, serine, and threonine. They are modified by o-glycosylation that creates oligosaccharides that confer on mucins their individual functions. Mucin is made mostly of fat. Those with inflammatory bowel and ulcerative colitis have low B-oxidation which is needed for the break down and use of fats. Since the mucous membrane is mostly fat this causes it to become dysfunctional. This makes people sensitive to fats and is why it is best if they consume medium chain fatty acids because the body can readily use them. Eggs yolks are a good source of phosphatidylcholine which is what the mucus membrane is mostly made of. Most with inflammatory bowel or colitis are sensitive to lecithin. I used sun flower seed lecithin and I did not react to it and it helped me a lot with my healing. Most other sources of lecithin I had to avoid. There are many studies showing that using sun flower seed as a source of lecithin has been shown to heal the gut. As for Chron’s disease I have a theory I have not had a chance to research but I believe they may be deficient in commensal microbes that digest sialic acid. Many of our commensals need it to thrive. Bacteroides Fragilis, Bacteroides Thetaiotaomicron, Bifidobacterium Bifido, Bifidobacterium Longhum, Bifidobacterium Infantis, Akkermansia Muciniphila all need sialic acid to thrive. Another theory I have about Chron’s that I have not gotten to research is they may have an overgrowth of those and that inflammation or LPS is stimulating the production of excessive sialic acid causing and overgrowth of those microbes.
Phospholipase A2 activity is higher in those with inflammatory bowel and colitis.
If a person is having trouble with methyl donors they will not produce enough phosphatidylcholine because methyl groups are used in the process of producing phosphatidylcholine for the mucous membrane. So combine that with the low B-oxidation and you see why it can be so difficult to heal. Disulfide bridges are also a component of phosphatidylcholine showing the importance of addressing things that can impair sulfation.
Phospholipase A2 is high in those with inflammatory bowel and colitis. Phospholipase is stimulated by inflammation. It is a mixture between inflammation and substance P and is why those with leaky gut have high substance P levels. When substance P levels get high the skin will have a burning sensation especially in the scalp and it may go down the spine. Substance P levels increase at night so the symptoms will worsen at night.
Annexin also known as lipocortin keeps PLA2 in check. Adrenal hormones increase Annexin but in many people with inflammatory bowel the adrenals become depleted from being over activated and they develop Addison’s disease which is a deficiency of adrenal hormones. Adaptogens help alleviate this which would help restore annexin levels. Annexin also helps repair our immune system. If annexin gets low the blood brain barrier becomes porous because it helps maintain the blood brain barrier. Annexin is also involved in protecting the brain from infection. It is very important to support the adrenals with the proper nutrients and to reduce inflammation so the adrenals can recover. Oddly Okadaic Acid a toxin found in shell fish increases annexin. This is something a person would definitely need an experienced medical professional to do. IL-6 increases annexin expression. To restore normal cortisol levels stress management is very important. Increased stress depletes cortisol. Getting rest is important, even if you cannot sleep just laying and resting can help increase cortisol. Avoid, caffeine, alcohol and smoking. Our mucosal layer will take up fats and integrate them to strengthen itself. Omega 3 oils, cod liver oil, nuts, and avocados help increase cortisol. Avoid processed sugar it depletes cortisol levels. Citrus fruits especially grape fruit increases cortisol but grape fruit inhibits certain cytochrome P450 enzymes so should not be eaten too often. Eat foods high in melatonin or take melatonin supplements at night which will increase cortisol. Non processed carbohydrates help increase melatonin. Magnesium is important for maintaining proper cortisol levels. Reducing inflammation can help normalize cortisol levels. Earth grounding and getting sunlight help to normalize cortisol levels. I still laugh when I mention earth grounding because I thought how could something so simple have so many health benefits. So I was determined to find research to show those earth grounders were crazy instead it was I who was crazy and the earth grounders are correct. I could find no research to prove them wrong but plenty of research showing the many health benefits of earth grounding.
We have to keep in mind goblet cells build our mucus membrane and when inhibited by inflammation, toxins or even damage to our digestive system our ability to produce mucin is reduced or inhibited. Bismuth even though it is a metal, is for the most part none toxic it takes very high doses for a very long time to reach toxic levels. It helps the gut heal. It kills many pathogens and can cause commensals that have turned pathogenic to go back to commensal. Mucilage helps protect the gut so it can heal. I have posted on reducing inflammation if you search my blog. Oatmeal is high in mucilage but you must get organic because they use glyphosate and glufonisate on grains and beans to dry them and those destroy our gut and kill our gut microbes. Three very good sources of mucilage is okra, arrow root and oatmeal. Make sure the oatmeal is organic. Most non organic oatmeal has farm chemicals that destroy the gut.
Here is an in depth article on mucus membranes.
Sialylation has been found to be increased in those with inflammatory bowel dieseases. Excessive sialylation increases inflammation. IL-10 inhibits Sialylation. Their are probiotics that increase IL-10 but IL-10 inhibits FUT2. So an oligosaccharide,galactosaccharride and fructosaccharide would probably have to be supplemented with it. I suspect the body is trying to increase the commensals that rely on the nutrients produced by sialylation and they have been depleted by antibiotics. Some commensals rely on FUT2 but others rely on sialylatin. Some do not produce the enzymes to break down sialic acid and rely on other commensals to produce it. A deficiency in either of them is probably what is causing the high sialylation. The body is trying to feed them. It is not getting the feedback from those commensals.
The bacteria this would help thrive are B Fragilis, B Theaiotaomicron, B Bifidum, B Longhum, B Infantis and A Muciniphila. I believe those with inflammatory bowel especially those with Chron’s will be deficient in those because those with Chron’s have a thicker mucous membrane.
The increased inflammation and infection caused by the above mentioned things results in an accumulation of ROS which can lead to further damage and it disturbs mitochondria function and autophagy. Once the mucus membrane has been damaged all the things mentioned below lose their protection and become dysfunctional. It may be necessary to take mucilage and bismuth to help protect them and restore their function. Once the mucus membrane breaks down it creates a cycle that has to be broken because the mucus membrane needs the things mentioned below to function properly and they need the mucus membrane to protect them and to function properly. Dysfunction in either of them from infection or toxins can start a cycle that has to be broken to heal. Our gut microbiome cannot become established without the mucus membrane because it also protects them. Our mucus membrane is a mediator between host and microbiota interactions. Decreased mucus membrane thickness causes a change in our gut microbiome and makes us more prone to infections.
This is where addressing sulfation issues, methyl group issues and issues with thiols comes in because the production of mucin requires all of those to be functioning. I have posted previously on how to deal with those issues. For the production of the oligosaccharides the endoplasmic reticulum and stem cell are required.
L-cysteine, L-arganine, L-threonine, L-serine, and L-cysteine increase mucin production in the digestive system and have been shown to promote gut microbiome homeostasis. Citrus fiber increases mucin especially the white part of the fruit. Pectin stimulates Goblet cell formation which secretes mucin. The microbiome that help restore gut health are Bifidobacterium Bifido, Bifidobacterium Breve, Bifidobacterium Lactis, Enterococcus Faecium, Lactobacillus Acidophilus, Lactococcus Lactis
For those who do not have glutamate issues bone broth heals the gut very quickly. Those who have high levels of sulfur digesting bacteria will have problems with the consumption of bone broth also.
The small intestine is the portal for the absorption of most nutrients in the body. The chyme which is the digested food that has exited the stomach enters the small intestine pancreatic enzymes and bile is secreted. This breaks the food down and if functioning properly it will be almost liquid when it enters the lower intestinal tract. Bicarbonate is also added by the body to reduce the acidity before it enters the large intestine. The enteric nervous system and gastrointestinal hormones regulate this process and the intestinal motility. Intestinal dysbiosis can cause incorrect communication or inhibited communication which leads to inflammation, intestinal damage and it could lead to a loss of the ability to produce bile and digestive enzymes. To restore proper function we must reduce the microbe causing the problem. Those who have high sulfur digesting bacteria will develop high hydrogen sulfide levels which interferes with sulfation and can interfere with the proper function of the CBS and BH4 pathways. This can lead to high sulfide levels in the body. BH4 levels will become low causing ammonia to build up when protein is consumed. The high ammonia levels will cause some commensals to go into protection mode and they will become pathogenic. Candida and H Pylori are two examples. To make matters worse they also start producing ammonia to protect themselves from the acidic environment. The digestive tract is supposed to be acidic. Ammonia alkalizes it this also makes us more prone to infections because the commensal microbes that protect us cannot survive in an alkaline environment. When we lose our commensal bacteria we lose proper immune function and our zonulin levels increase and our gut becomes more porous leaving things enter the blood stream that could not normally enter. Inflammation and oxalates can inhibit bile flow causing it to back up, when this happens the gallbladder is effected. Instead of addressing the problem modern medicine gets rid of the symptom by removing the gallbladder thus the illness continues to worsen and taking the gallbadder out can contribute to it’s progression.
If bile becomes inhibited it inhibits the vitamin D receptor further inhibiting bile production and adding to the problem because cholesterol production and conversion becomes inhibited. This will make bile become sludgy leading to low bile flow which will increase estrogen levels and cause high unbound copper levels in the blood. Bitter herbs increase bile flow but the vitamin D receptor has to be addressed along with balancing the microbiome in the gut and healing the intestinal tract.
This is why I often times recommend grape seed extract and bacopa to people. It prevents thrombosis. Inflammation because endotoxins can cause thrombosis. Grape seed extract and bacopa reduce inflammation and prevent thrombosis. If thrombosis occurs in the portal vein it will effect the liver, pancrease, and digestive system. This causes pain in the stomach, bloating, inflammation, pancreatic pain, pain in the gallbladder. This can lead to death. Bile flow will become inhibited speeding up the progression of portal vein thrombosis. Those with hepatitis need to use hawthorne or something else. Resveratrol activates hepatitis.
portal vein thrombosis
gastrointestinal symptoms (ex: abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea), fever and constitutional symptoms (ex: fatigue, malaise, and anorexia/weight loss) . We can also find hepatomegaly with elevated liver enzymes and jaundice , when associated with liver abscess or cholangitis . Laboratory tests usually demonstrate elevated markers of inflammation 
If not addressed in time it can lead to portal hypertension. This results in brain swelling, abdominal swelling . Confusion, anemia and low white blood cell count.
Autophagy is very important in maintaining health and we need a proper balance. It can be disrupted if we have intestinal damage. If autophagy is inhibited we become prone to infection and mitochondrial dysfunction. Autophagy is the housekeeper of our cells. One common theme you will see is inflammation and shows the importance of reducing inflammation. Which could involve diet changes, addressing metabolic issues, reducing toxins and infections. Addressing detox issues and detoxing in an appropriate manor for the individual. Addressing gene issues which could be caused by any number of things including a lack of the microbe in the gut that may modulate that genes function.
The mucus membrane in our digestive system protects us from infection, physical and chemical harm. Our commensal bacteria cannot exist without it. It is very important to restore our mucus membrane when damaged in order to restore intestinal homeostasis. Many genes mentioned below are effected when it is damaged because it causes a dysfunction in them. Autophagy is very important for the maintenance or proper gene function.
Paneth cells are located within our mucus membranes and provide immunity, prevent damage to the digestive system and is involved with nutrient absorption. Loss of our mucus membrane from loss of microbiotia, drugs or farm chemicals found in our food can destroy our mucus membrane. This causes damage to the digestive system which can further inhibit the bodies ability to produce mucin. This makes us more susceptible to infection. Paneth cells stimulate the production of AMPs which fight infection and modulate commensal microbiome and innate immunity. A list of AMPs are defensin-like human lyzosome, defensin (HD)-5 and 6, lyzosome, regenerating islet derived gamma(Reg3y), and phospholipase A2 group 2A(sPLA2) as well as inflammatory cytokines such as Transforming Tumor Necrosis Factor A (TNF-a), Growth Factor B1 (TGF-B1), and Postaglandin E2. AMPs are sensitive to ER stress which I discuss below.
Autophagy protects against infection by producing Antimicrobial Peptides and degrading organelles that break down misfolded proteins and AMPs break down pathogens. This can ease the over activated inflammatory response and over active immune response. Some AMPs are defensin and cathelicidens which protect against microbes.
Intestinal Epithelial Cells. (IECs) – form a physical and chemical barrier involved in inflammatory response and immune reaction. IECs work as an interface between the quantitive microbial ecosystem in the intestinal lumen. Lumen is inside space or opening in a tubular structure.
There are 6 types of IECs
Goblet Cells which secrete mucin to build up the mucin barrier.
Enteroendocrine cells which produce gastrointestinal hormones that communicate with the nervous system, the brain and organs throughout the body. They respond to nutrients within the intestines. Helps restore intestinal tissue.
Absorptive Enterocytes – epithelial cells in small intestine. They are involved in nutrient absorption, absorption of conjugated bile acid, lipid uptake, Issues with Absorptive Enerocytes can inhibit glucose absorption and can result in lactose intolerance and many other food intolerances. It can also result in an electrolyte imbalance. Enterocytes secrete a series of chemokines and cytokines which regulate immune responses of subjugant mucosal. (Mucosal control)
Tuft Cells – brush cells which are chemosensory cells in the intestinal epithelial lining. Tuft refers to microvilli projecting from the cells. They increase during parasite infection. They are the sole source of Interleuken 25 which induces NF-kB activation which helps protect from infection. High levels of IL-25 raises eosinophils which causes inflammation and is suspected of causing inflammatory bowel diseases. Eosinophils have been shown to kill many types of cancer cells. Infection also stimulates Tuft Cell to produce IL-25. They are increased through a T cell response through a type of lymphatic tissue. Tuft cell also secret endogenous opioids. Eosinophils cause asthma, cardiovascular disease and can even cause headaches, mood swings and brain fog.
Microfold Villous Cells – are found in the Gut-associated Lymphoid Tissue (GALT) of the Peyers Patches in the small intestine and the Mucus-associated Lymphoid Tissue (MALT). M Cells initiates mucosal immunity. They allow the transport of microbes and across the epithelial cell layer. From the gut lumen to the lamina propria. M cells contain Epidermal growth factor which acts as a sensor to stimulate repair through the intestines including the mucus membrane , tight junction protein layer and it stimulates goblet cell differentiation and many other things in the colon.
Endoplasmic Reticulum are organelles within our cells and plays a major role in the production of proteins and lipids. So this is where our enzymes , hormones and even our detox enzymes are produced.
Endoplasmic Reticulum Stress Unfolded Protein Response (UPR) is activated in response to unfolded or misfolded proteins in the endoplasmic reticulum. It stops the production of unfolded or misfolded proteins it is the quality control mechanism. It will stop production and start cleaning the bad proteins out. If it continues for too long then it will induce apoptosis which is cell death. If overactivated which vaccines and many farm chemicals can cause to happen it can lead to prion disease. It plays a valuable role in intestinal endoplasmic reticulum survival and function. Dysfunction of endoplasmic reticulum can result from genes that have been effected from infection, toxins, or even stress can result in abnormal UPR function. This is referred to as Endoplasmic reticulum stress.
ER stress activates three kinds of proteins which reside in the ER membrane to detect UPR in ER Lumen and resolve them. Autophagy reduces ER stress.
inositol-rquiring membrane kinase endonuclease1 (IRE1) via a really long pathway that I am certain you do not want me to type out. Issues with the genes involved in these mediators in intestinal endothelial cells will change the histological structure of the intestinal epithelium.
XBP1- inhibition will exhibit impaired Paneth Cells, which leads to dysbiosis and spontaneous intestinal inflammation which may induce activation of NF-kB pathway which can lead to inflammation, anxiety, chronic depression, insulin and leptin resistance, it increases risk of cardiovascular disease and high TH17 levels which can lead to psoriasis or lupus, Many who have intersitial cystitis have high TH17 levels. It can cause bone lose and Alzheimers. On the other end of the scale not enough NF-kB can produce many health problems. Like lower cognitive function, inhibited ability to heal, inhibited nerve growth and brain plasticity. This is a good article covering it in more detail. https://www.selfhacked.com/blog/nuclear-factor-kappa-b/
The second gene that can increase risk of inflammatory bowel disease is oromucoid-like3 (ORMDL3). Over expression can lead to immune/inflammatory diseases. It has been linked to childhood asthma. Over expression causes inhibited calcium buffering capacity of the mitochondria. This can disrupt endocytosis, enzyme control , cell growth and proliferation and cell apoptosis. ORMDL3 takes part in protein folding and in regulating UPR. It is believed ERs induced inflammation in paneth cells may disturb ORMDL3 levels leading to inflammation.
TREM1 (Triggering Receptor Expressed On Myeloid Cells-1) inhibits autophagy and increases ERs stress levels. This has been shown to increase the severity of inflammatory bowel diseases. Defective autophagy in the endoplasmic reticulum can predispose someone to inflammatory bowel diseases form a decreased clearance of IRE1 during ERs. High IRE1 levels impairs insulin signaling this can lead to many metabolic diseases. TREM1 can either increase inflammation or decrease it. During infection TREM1 increases inflammation. TREM1 also interacts with other inflammatory pathways which can also result in TREM1 increasing inflammation. TREM1 is high during septic shock. Sustained increased levels of TREM1 can lead to inflammatory bowel disease, cardiovascular disease and atherosclerosis. TREM1 is needed to help clear infection. Unfortunately when an infection that contains OspA protein that are difficult for the body to clear like HIV and Borellia (Lyme Disease) it can cause TREM1 levels to remain high. This is why it is very important to work on reducing inflammation and address infection. Most infectious diseases there are no test for and the test they do have has a high failure rate at detecting the microbe responsible for the illness. But the body and what genes are effected and cytokines present can indicate when there is an infectious agent present. The more difficult infections can be killed but it takes a multilevel approach because most that carry the OspA take multiple forms and have to be addressed differently for each form it has taken.
Inflammatory bowel disease have been shown to have a dis-regulation of T Cell which can be induced by toxins, drugs, vaccine injury, farm chemical or processed foods.
Autophagy is a conserved lysosome-dependent catabolic process involved in degrading and recycling aggregates as well as damaged organelles. Enhancement of autophagy promotes the survival of various cells including intestinal endothelial cells, and nuetrophils by protecting them from microbial toxins. A disturbance in autophagy could disturb the function of intestinal endothelial cells and influence inflammatory response, immune response, ROS levels and endoplasmic reticulum stress. This can lead to inflammatory bowel diseases. Autophagy plays a vital role in alleviating of intestinal inflammtion, degredation of damage associated molecular patterns (DAMPS), which can help prevent inflammatory bowel diseases. PAMPs refer to various kinds of endogenous materials produced by stress, impaired or dying cells covering DNA, RNA, ATP, histones, hyaluronan, uric acid, heparin sulfate, the S100A calgranulins, IL-1, HSP, and chromatin-associated high motility box1(HMGB1).
Basal autopaghy occurs in nearly every cell to maintain homeostasis of the ammino acid pools. There are three types of autophagy.
Macropahy – targets material such as cytoplasmic components or invasive bactria which are surrounded by a double-membrane bound autophagosome.
Autophagosome when combined with lysosomechanges into a single-layer membrane autolysome with a strong degradative and digestive ability.
Microautophagy – during the process of microautophagy lysosomal/vacuolar membranes invaginate (fold in on itself) to engulf intracellular components via a non-selective degradative mechanism.
Chaperone-mediated autophagy transports organelles and proteins into lysosomes only with the assistance of chaperones which are located in lysosomal lumen. Chaperons are proteins that assist in convalent folding or unfolding and the assembly or disassembly of other macromolecular structures. They assist in the assembly of nucleosomes which are basic units of DNA.
Two steps of Autophagy.
The first step of autophagy cup-shaped double membrane phagophores are shaped in the cytoplasma of the cell, and then misfolded proteins, damaged organelles or bacteria are engulfed to become sperical double membraned autophagosomes. Autophagosomes are usually considered to be produced from the nucleation and membrane expansion of phagophores.
During the second step autophgosomes fuse with lysosomes and endosomes to form a single-lipid layer autolysome, which is regard as basal units for degradation and digestion. Autophagy process is induced by the detection of various specific cues such as starvation or invasion by pathogens.
Two proteins are known to participate in autophagy which include Mammaian Target of Rapamycin (mTOR) as an inhibitor and adenosine monophosphate activated protein kinase as an indicator. mTOR is often activated by lower levels of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) caused by nutrient sufficiency or several growth factor stimulations. mTORC1 inhibits autophagy in the presence of nutrients. mTORC1 regulates glycolysis, lipid biosynthesis, and the pentose phosphate pathway has been found to be under the control of mTORC1. mTORC1 mediates upregulation of SREBP-1 activity which is necessary for lipid biogenesis. mTORC1 increases mitochondrial DNA copy number and as well as encoding many genes involved in oxidative metablolism. It has been found that mTORC1 promotes transcriptional activity of PPARy coactivator (PCG-1a) which is usually low in those who have inflammatory bowel diseases. This leads to the inability to break down fats and cholesterol causing many health problems because lipids are needed by almost all cells of the body especially the digestive system to maintain proper function and health. Ironically mTORC1 inhibition leads to longer lifespan. mTORC1 inhibits autophagy. mTORC1 increases NRF2 activity the master regulator of the antioxidant system.
Excess mTORC1 activation can cause endoplasmic reticulum stress and excess ROS production.
Low ATP levels inhibits mTORC1. Inhibiting mTORC1 increases glucose uptake. Hypoxia (oxygen deprivation) inhibit mTORC1. Amino Acid deprivation can inhibit the citric acid cycle (TCA cycle) this also inhibits mTORC1. The body inhibits mTORC1 when it senses DNA damage. Autophagy reactivates mTORC1 whose activity then promotes the replacement of lysosomes consumed during autophagy.
Symptoms of excess mTORC1 . Since there is no information on what excess mTORC1 does I will have list the symptoms of inhibited autophagy and high ROS levels since those are issues caused by high mTORC1 levels.
Symptoms of inhibited autophagy. Nuerological problem , inhibited autophagy can lead to inflammation in the brain, mental illness. Mitochondrial dysfunction, decreased antioxidant function which can lead to high levels of ROS. Pancreatic inflammation. Fat accumulation throughout the body and can lead to fatty liver disease. Issues with lysosomal storage, diabetes and sickle cell anemia. Frequent illness from infectious agents.
Symptoms of high ROS. ROS is needed for redox signaling but becomes damaging if levels get too high. High levels of ROS cause inflammation. Leaky gut and can cause a leaky blood brain barrier. This also can lead to nuerological damage and brain inflammation causing mental illness. Can cause liver damage resulting in a hepatic liver. Fatigue from reduced energy levels. Mitochondrial dysfunction which can lead to MS. Here is a link to a good article on oxidative stress.
Things that stimulate mTORC1. Resistance training, amino acid L-Luecine, Beta Hydroxy Beta-methylbutyric acid which is a precursor of butyric acid. High intake of Iron stimulates mTORC1.
Inhibitors of mTORC1 are green tea, resveratrol, curcumin, caffeine and alcohol. Iron deficiency inhibits mTORC1. Green tea can damage the liver if taken for too long and curcumin chelates iron so can make a person anemic if consumed too long.
Vitamin D receptor (VDR) mediates the activities of vitamin D3 which is the activated form of vitamin D. A deficiency can effect our digestive system in many ways. The VDR is involved in regulating 33% of the genes in the body so problems with it can effect many things. VDR and Retinoid X receptor interact to with each other and can activate each other so issues with either one can effect vitamin D homeostasis. Inhibited VDR effects calcium homeostasis, electrolyte balance, and blood pressure.
Vitamin D3 acts as a hormone a hormone and helps regulate innate and adaptive immune responses. Those with low vitamin D levels or inhibited VDR receptor are prone to infection with Mycoplasma Tuberculosis. VDR is involved in producing the antimicrobial peptide/IL-37, defensin beta B, CLDN2 encoding claudin 2 and ATG16L1 related autophagy which protects us from inefection.
The VDR receptor is involved in gut microbiome balance and autophagy. Autophagy is the house keeper of our cells it helps clean them out, protect them from infection and helps to prevent misfolded proteins. Inhibited vitamin D receptor can cause inhibited bile flow and a decrease in LDL and increase in HDL. The reduced LDL causes bile to become sludgy which leads to biliary issues and gallbladder problems and can result in gall stones and biliary blockage.
When the VDR receptor is inhibited or there is a vitamin D deficiency we can develop inflammatory bowel diseases. IKBa is an inhibitor of pro-inflammatory NF-kB.
VDR inhibition or vitamin D deficiency alters the composition of intestinal microbiome. Butyrate producing bacteria become less numerous. Butyrate increases expression of VDR so a deficiency in Butyrate would further add to the inhibition of the VDR receptor. Butyrate also suppresses intestinal inflammation and enhances AMPs. AMPs help protect us from infection.
Toxins, mold toxins, infection and a lack of nutrients can inhibit the vitamin D receptor. High levels of vitamin D3 indicates the body has recognized an infection and is trying to fight it.
Farm chemicals especially glyphosate and glufonisate inhibit the vitamin D receptor. Many toxins found in processed food can also inhibit the vitamin D receptor.
Symptoms of inhibited VDR.
If the VDR is inhibited a person may experience problems with methyl donors and low dopamine levels. They may experience frequent infections and be low in GcMAF. Inhibited VDR can cause bone loss, hair loss, brain fog, increased TH17 levels resulting in lupus, psoriasis and/or skin rashes, tooth decay and poor oral health, inflammation throughout the body, can lead to high blood pressure. Low LDL which inhibits bile production resulting in biliary and gall bladder problems and can lead to stone formation. Electrolyte imbalance and iron deficiency. Low dopamine and GABA levels is a result of VDR inhibition. Prolactin level become low when VDR is inhibited. Gut dysbiosis and inflammation in the digestive system. Increased creatine and albumin levels and decreased alkaline phosphatase are symptoms of low vitamin D or inhibited vitamin D receptor. VDR inhibition or vitamin D deficiency can result in mast sell activation syndrome. CYP3a4 an enzyme needed for detoxing xenobiotics and drugs becomes inhibited. Hormonal imbalance is also a result of VDR inhibition. Hashimoto’s syndrome can result from VDR inhibition. Heart disease can be a result of VDR receptor inhibition or vitamin D deficiency. In more severe cases VDR inhibition can lead to liver and kidney disease.
Symptoms of Vitamin D deficiency.
Joint stiffness or pain, back aches, tooth decay, bleeding gums or gum disease, muscle cramps, hair loss, bone loss, weakening of bones, increases risk for cancer, sleep apnea, brain fog, fatigue, depression, leaky gut, excess sweating especially in the head area.
Excess vitamin D can lead to many health problems and can result in loss of bone from a disruption in the mechanisms that control calcium homeostasis. Though it is needed for calcium absorption high doses can have the opposite effects. High levels of vitamin D can lead to oxalate formation. Many studies show anything over 5000 IU a day can lead to oxalate formation and many health problems.The recommended daily allowance of vitamin D is 600 IU. It is best to get vitamin D from food sources. Exposure to sunlight, far infrared, halogen lights can increase the bodies production of vitamin D. Short term raised levels have been found to be beneficial but long term raised vitamin D levels have been found to be harmful to our health. High levels of vitamin D can contribute to the inhibition of the VDR. Excess vitamin D can result in high levels of calcium in the blood resulting in calcium deposits forming in the organs including the lungs.
Sources of vitamin D. Sunlight, halogen lights, far infrared light increases the bodies production of vitamin D. Excess sunlight has been shown to cause high levels of vitamin D and is why life guards have some of the highest rates of kidney stones. Fish oil contains vitamin D. Sardine , salmon and cod liver oil are good sources. I try to make sure the fish is not from contaminated areas. Most sea food is high in vitamin D. Mushrooms and eggs are a good source of vitamin D. Animal liver is another good source of vitamin D. Cestrum Diurnum, Waxy leaf nightshade (solanum glaucophyllum), yellow oat grass (trisetum flavescens) are plant sources of vitamin D. Those plants are so high in vitamin C that they cause calcinosis in grazing animals. Brown and read seaweed are also sources of vitamin D and cholesterol. Mercury found in fish is for the most part only a problem if we have leaky gut. When the gut is intact only about 5% of the toxins like mercury get absorbed that have been consumed and when healthy the body can easily detox that amount unless it is shot directly into the blood stream. I mention this because even though they claim vaccines do not contain mercury some still do.
Things needed for the body to be able to use vitamin D. Vitamin K2, Vitamin A, zinc, sulfur is needed to sulfate vitamin D so sulfation issues need to be addressed. Magnesium increases the bodies response to vitamin D. Boron increases vitamin D in the blood stream. Water is needed, dehydration inhibits many receptors in the body. Silica helps improve the function of many receptors in the body. Sunlight helps to sulfate nutrients. DAO and lysine are also needed to sulfate vitamin D. Boron is touchy, low levels reduce estrogen high levels increases estrogen.
Things that enhance vitamin D receptor activity. Parathyroid hormone, Sirt 1, Dopamine, Omega 3 , Omega 6, Phytoestrogens, Testosterone, Postaglandulins and bile activates VDR. Bitter herbs stimulate bile production. Even if you do not swallow bitter herbs just tasting them stimulates bile production. Resveratrol activates the vitamin D receptor. Querciten enhances vitamin D receptor activity. Curcumin stimulates the vitamin D receptor but if taken for too long it can lead to anemia because it chelates iron from the body. So one may use it at first to help stimulate the VDR receptor but probably should just take maintenance doses to make sure it continues to function. Human Growth Hormone stimulates the vitamin D receptor. Sleep, fasting, and strength training increase HGH.
Things that can inhibit VDR are cortisol/glucocorticoids, high prolactin levels, imbalance in thyroid hormones, TGF-Beta, phosphatonins which regulate phosphate homeostasis, and ubiquitin can inhibit VDR. Many of these things are inhbited by autophagy which would prevent them from inhibiting the VDR receptor. Caffeine can also inhibit the VDR. High TGF-B levels can be an indication of T cell imbalance and/or B cell imblance. Probiotics that reduce inflammatin and increase T regulatory cells should reduce TGF-B. High phosphatonins is a sign of low klotho levels. Exercise increases klotho, Most Acidophilus bacteria and Lactobacillus Lactis increases klotho. Cordyceps mushrooms increase kltoho. PPAR Gamma activators stimulate klothos, Some PPAR gamma activators are berberine, magnolia, and Omega 3s. Those who are obese should not stimulate PPAR gamma because they are usually PPAR gamma dominant. Adaptogenic herbs like suma root and maca root can help normalize adrenal levels. Ubiquitin levels are reduced by autophagy. High prolactin levels can result from toxins in plastic containers used to store food and some farm chemicals found in our food supply. There are also chemicals in processed foods that can cause high prolactin levels. Those who are taking drugs should not use berberine or things that contain it because it inhibits the cytochrome P450 enzymes needed to detox medications.
Fulvic acid and nobiline induce autophagy. We do not want to overstimulate autophagy. Fasting also stimulates autophagy but those who are Type1 diabetics have to be careful fasting can induce ketoacidosis in them. Branch Chain fatty acids can inhibit autophagy. Tumeric, ginger, berberine, gensing, mushrooms and elderberries can stimulate autophagy.
NOD2 – Nucleotidebinding Oligomerization Domaincontaining Protein 2 whew that was a lot. A member of the NLP family which is a group of immune regulating proteins. It is a sensor of muramyl dipeptide which is a constituent of both gram negative and gram positive bacteria. It is found in macropages and paneth cells. When inhibited a-defensin numbers are decreased, lower sensitivity to bacteria infection, and altered immune function from Toll Like Receptors becoming suppressed. This results in the inability to clear bacteria infections from the intestines. Inate and adaptive immunity is impaired. Nod2 induces autophagy through the NOD2 pathway. NOD2 is induced by NLP or bacteria infection, this promotes the delivery of NOD2 which enhances inflammation. Showing that if You have high NOD2 levels you would not want to induce autophagy. NOD2 prevents infection in cells which is mediated by ROS and MAPK pathways. NOD2 altered expression can lead to inflammatory bowel disease. Many cellular proteins interact with NOD2 directly and regulate it’s function positively or negatively. Among these proteins is Erbin. Erbin regulates Erbb2 if Erbin is inhibited Erbb2 levels can go up resulting in cancer growth. Centaurin B1 which I have no idea what it’s function is. Angio-associated migratory protein which is involved in endothelial tube formation and endothelial cell migration. It is involved in angiogenesis. Carbamoyl-phosphate synthase 2 is involved in the production of nucelotides in cells. Mitogen-activated protein 1 which helps down regulate NOD2. Heat shock protein 90 interacts with NOD2. HSP90 is involved in folding , intracellular transport and the degradation and maintenance of proteins. I have post on heat shock proteins like HSP90 and HSP70.
NOD deficiency. NOD2 is involved in maintaining balance between the microbiome and immune response. NOD2 deficiency results in loss of epithelium integrity, and increased susceptibility to intestinal inflammation. NOD2 deficiency can cause dysfunction in intestinal paneth and goblet cells. Deficiency increases IFN-y, and decrease ROS production which protects from infection so we need a balance because excess ROS can damage tissues in the body.
NOD2 upregulation. Vitamin D supplementation has been shown to increase NOD2 which helps to fight infection. Excess NOD2 can lead to rheumatoid arthritis, and systematic inflammation. Excess NOD2 has been linked to cardiovascular disease and pulmonary disease. NOD2 prevents inflammation in the eyes.
NOD2 deficiency causes low TH17 levels, inhibited immunity, and will be more prone to cancer. NOD2 is also involved in the detection and eradication of viruses.
Excess NOD2 causes systematic inflammation and sarcoidosis. Often times it is mistaken for cancer or copd. High NOD2 levels is a sign of infection.
Damage to the mucus membrane and intestinal tissue can cause it’s dis-regulation. This shows the importance of restoring mucus membrane and work on healing the gut.
Autophagy-Related Protein 16-like Protein 1 – Deficiency in Atg16L1 impairs recruitment of Atg12-Atg-5 complex which impairs the engulfment of pathogens and cellular organelles during the process of autophagic catabolism. Atg16L1 defeciency cause Paneth cell dysfunction and increases inflammation. Atg16L1 causes high leptin and adiponectin levels. A deficiency in Atg16L1 leads to intestinal lesions. Leptin tells the brain we do not need to eat. Leptin increases inflammation in the body. High leptin levels lead to chronic fatigue. Leptin can cause Th1 dominance. Those with high IL-10 levels would want to avoid probiotics that increase IL-10 because leptin increases IL-10. Leptin causes mast cells to become more inflammatory. Leptin causes lower T regulatory cells which keep our immune system at homeostasis. Leptin can cause excess blood clotting (throbosis). Leptin can cause high blood pressure. Leptin increases estrogen levels. Adiponectin is a protein hormone involved in glucose levels and fatty acid breakdown. High adiponectin levels causes a loss of appetite it causes weight loss and works synergistically with leptin. Adiponecton decreases gluconeogenesis. It increases B-oxidation of fats. It protects against endothelial dysfunction. It increases insulin sensitivity. So you can see the importance of Atg16L1 homeostasis.
Mir223 restores autophagy and Atg16L1 homeostasis. Mir233 downregulates inflammation. Mir233 is reduced in sepsis. Mir233 increase HDL cholesterol levels. But Mir233 is upregulated in inflammatory bowel diseases. Increasing Claudin-8 inhibits Mir233 inflammatory effects.
ROS (Reactive Oxygen Species)
ROS or Reactive Oxygen Species modulates cellular function under normal conditions. ROS is produced during the process of oxidative phosphorylation and can be handled by instracellular antioxidants. Injury, toxins , vaccine injury, infection, and stress can cause an over production of ROS which can exceed the generation of antioxidants leading to oxidative stress which can cause a lot of damage throughout the body. It causes inflammation, cell damage and even cell death. When the mitochondria become dysfunctional this can cause a rearrangement of the cytoskeleton which is framework of the plasma membrane and effects the balance between kinases, and phosphatases which promotes the ability of microorganisms to enter the cell and contributes to many inflammatory diseases. Excess ROS increases the permeability of intestinal epithelial. When levels of ROS are normal it will induce autophagy and microphagy which reduces inflammation. Reducing ROS levels too low can have the opposite effect because it would prevent it from inducing autophagy and we would lose the protection it gives us from infection.
Antioxidants can reduce oxidative stress but when homeostasis is achieved a person should only take maintenance doses. Over use of antioxidants can promote cancer by protecting it from apoptosis it also increases our risk of infection by reducing ROS levels too low.
Xenophagy is the clearance of pathogens regulated by autophagy. Reduces Xenophagy leads to alterations of intestinal microbiota. This leads to a higher rate of infection. The microbiotia induce xenophagy in basal paneth cells which is induced by INF-y to maintain intestinal integrity. This impairs sensing of intracellular micro organisms in the intestinal endothelial cells and contributes to the progression of inflammatory bowel disease. Showing the importance on healing the intestinal tract so that the mucus membrane can be restored. Prebiotic fiber and the tryptophan metabolizing gut microbiota increases IFN-y. The commensal strains of E Coli increases IFN-y. Lactobacillus Gasseri increases IFN-y. Bacteroides Fragilis increases IFN-y and has been found to protect from many types of infections. Butyric Acid must be present to maintain IFN-y homeostasis. So it would also be a good idea to make sure the butyrate producing microbes are established.
IRGM (Immunity Related GTPase Family M protein) – is involved in killing of bacteria, vacuolar trafficking and acidification, it is also involved in autophagy. It is involved in fighting mycoplasmas. Damage to the digestive tract can impair it’s function which wold make you susceptible to mycoplasma infection. Inflammation inhibits IRGM. Our digestive tract needs to be acidic. If it becomes to alkaline then it creates an environment that promotes infection and dysbiosis and we lose our commensal microbiota.
This is not medical advice I am posting this for informational and educational purposes. Whether you vaccinate or not is up to you bad do your research. It can change your whole families life because vaccine injury is real and millions of dollars are awarded every year to victims of vaccine injury and families. Unfortunately some vaccine injury is so severe the family has to deal with a permanently severely disabled family member the rest of their lives which can take it’s tool on the family and death often occurs. Know the risk and make your decisions based on an unbiased and balanced view of the information.
Wonder why so many children are getting cancer? Vaccinations and the poor kids don’t stand a chance because they get injected with them as soon as they are born.
Wonder why so many children are ill now days. Vaccinations and vaccine injury is not always obvious and can take years before it starts to present itself as an autoimmune issue. They will blame it on genes but that is not true. That is like saying that bullets do not kill and injure but it is the persons susceptibility to injury and death that has caused the injury or death. All vaccines injure 100% of the time. All vaccines contain harmful toxins and many contain aborted fetal tissue or animal tissue.
If you do research you will find that disease rates took a dramatic drop when better sanitation practices were implemented as man became aware of what caused illness. And also as nutrition became more available disease declined dramatically. Very shortly after vaccines were introduced disease has taken a dramatic climb and has risen every since because vaccines cause and spread disease they do not prevent illness. Vaccines have been found to be the cause of the new super bugs.
They renamed polio flaccid myelitis because they had realized toxins and vaccines were the cause of polio.
Germ theory which vaccines are based on is incorrect and has been proven to be, so vaccine research is flawed from the start. How our immune system works is nothing like we are taught in school.
Vaccines have major toxins. Some toxins they put in vaccines require a hazmat team to clean them up if they are spilled and have been banned in many other products but they permit their use in vaccinations. Toxins alter our genes but then the vaccine producers will blame a persons genes when they have an adverse reaction to them.
This is not medical advice I am posting this for educational and informational purposes.
I have a lot more to add to this but need a break and then I will finish it. I am going to add the things that negatively impact health and how it happens. Some of it I have covered but I have not covered the how part of it I only covered things that may help correct it.
Because probiotics can cause sepsis if you have ulcers or your gut is too porous I consumed a lot of mucilage and took bismuth in order to make sure my gut healed enough that would not happen.
To fully grasp the information here and to grasp the information in the links you will need to understand that Germ Theory and Terrain Theory have been proven wrong and that is why our Facebook group Synergistic Health decided we need a new theory “Enviroment and Biome Theory of Health”
This article discusses how our microbiome effect the whole body even the blood brain barrier.
In this post I am going to try and show how our environment, biome of our environment and our won biome effect our health. This shows that our Facebook group Synergistic Health is correct with our theory “Environment and Biome Theory of Health” is correct and that germ theory and terrain theory are incorrect. Learning this will help people understand why their genes have very little impact on their health compared to the above mentioned things. I also list the things that may be able to correct them.
In all the research I have read gut diversity increases health and longevity and is found to be a commonality in centurions.
There is a myth we should alkaize our digestive system must be acidic and alkalinity cause pathogenic and hydrogen sulfide producing bacteria to increase. This causes sulfation issues and increased ammonia getting the body stuck in a cycle. Bile and digestive enzymes become inhibited which cause high estrogen levels and copper will become biounavailable. You must break this cycle by getting ammonia levels down. BH4 levels get low when this happens eating protein increases ammonia levels. Short chain fatty acids balance our T cells so it is important to increase SCFA producing bacteria. I did a blog post on reducing ammonia levels (alkalosis). I did a post on reducing akalosis. I also did a summary of my notes which covers many of these things. If you search for akalosis and summary you should be able to find the information.
Fiber especially inulin increases the good gut bacteria. Exercise also increases our good gut bacteria. Reducing stress or learning to deal with stress increases our good gut bacteria. Ghee is high in butyrate which increases our good gut bacteria.
Egg and milk allergies indicate high Staphylococcus Aureus levels. This is caused by low microbiota that breaks up biofilms and produces natural antibiotics. This can also be caused by low lactobacillus paracasei, lactobacillus adolenscentis and lactobacillus rhamnosis levels.
I do not mention the strains that produce histamines because they are usually not a problem unless something is wrong in the body and they are needed for gut and body health. Avoiding the foods that cause them to produce histamines is more effective. Fermented foods, and aged meats and many cheeses will cause them to produce histamines. Some cheeses like Gouda and Parmesion have species of microbes that reduce histamines. This is why overconsumption of them can cause constipation because histamine stimulates stomache acid production. Those with low stomach acid production may benefit from eating foods that increase histamines.
An imbalance in our gut bacteria can lead to the production of high substance P levels which leads to systematic inflammation. If levels get high enough a person will start to lose their hair, they will get burning in their skin especially at night. The burning mostly occurs in the scalp and down the spine. I posted on how to reduce substance P.
When replacing a microbe you may be lacking it is normal to experience cramps and bloating until they get established. Taking the same probiotic daily can cause gut dysbiosis which is as bad as when candida goes pathogenic and can cause candida and H Pylori to switch from commensal to pathogenic. Probiotics should be alternated and one should take a break from them to let the microbial community balance out.
Most Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus have some oxalate degrading abilities. The microbiota that produce vitamin B12 need chromium to be present to produce it.
Exercise increases our good gut bacteria. Stress and trauma increase our bad bacteria so it is very important to learn to meditate , pray and not to dwell on things you can do nothing about and do your best to get over trauma and do not hold grudges or be resentful or hateful. When we have a lot of negative emotions it increases the gut bacteria that increases adrenaline and it can tax our adrenals.
Diets rich on complex carbohydrates have been shown to prevent infection from food born pathogens. Processed sugar has been found to dramatically increase risk of infection from ford born pathogens.
Often times a persons microbiome is influenced by their sexual partners. Their sexual partner may have different metabolic factors so could appear to be unaffected. Usually a person sexual partner should be treated for dysbiosis or infection also to prevent constant reinfection or constant microbiome disruption.
Galacto-oligosaccharides increase absorption of nutrients, and increase the beneficial bacteria that are important in health mental health and cognition. It prevents constipation and helps protect from food born pathogens. It increases the microbiome that reduces anxiety and pain. It is derived from raw milk and is destroyed during pasteurizing. It also decreases the risk of pulmonary infections. It reduces almost all inflammatory markers in the body. It reduces intestinal inflammation. Galacto-oligosaccharid and fructo-oligosaccharid helps to prevent diabetes.
Our bodies secrete FUT2 to modulate our immune system and to keep our good microbiome health. Many things can make us deficient in FUT2 enzymes which causes a loss of our good gut microbiome and can lead to inflammatory bowel diseases and gut dysbiosis. Fructooligosaccharide and oligosaccharides can replace FUT2 until it is corrected. This is can also result from a deficiency in the microbiota that stimulate IL-22
A loss of our gut microbiome can cause raised zonulin levels which results in many food intolerances, metabolic issues , increase susceptibility to infection and if not corrected can lead to acidosis or alkalosis. Zonulin regulates gut permeability if levels get too low we can develop malabsorption issues. If zonulin levels get to high we can develop many health problems. It can also lead to interstitial cystitis and damage the blood brain barrier which results in the loss of protection of the brain and can lead to infection , encephalopathy and even chira which is a life threatening condition. Increased zonulin levels causes depression, anxiety and can even cause paranoid delusions and psychosis. Mold toxins can increase zonulin levels. BT Toxin found in GMO increase zonulin levels. Farm chemicals which are found to be heavy in our food increases zonulin levels especially glyphosate and glufosinate. It is very important to eat organic when possible. A diet high in fiber and resistant starches increases the microbes that reduce zonulin. Oddly our sterile lifestyles have caused a loss of the microbes that keep zonulin levels balanced. They have found those who are in nature and work with the soil a lot get the good microbes that keep zonulin levels balanced. Unfortunately glyphosate and glufosinate are killing those microbes in the soil which is making it more and more difficult for a person to get those microbes. Endotoxins and mycotoxins increase zonulin levels making us more prone to leaky gut. Leaky gut causes systematic inflammation which can lead to autoimmunity. Butyrate producing gut bacteria reduce zonulin levels helping to prevent leaky gut. Butter and raw milk is high in butyrate. Inflammation causes increased zonulin levels so microbes that reduce inflammation will decrease zonulin. When zonulin levels are how toxins the body would not absorb but would get excreted are easily absorbed which causes high heavy metal and other toxins levels in the body. High zonulin levels also result in food particles entering the blood stream which causes a lot of food sensitivities. This can be corrected by addressing the leaky gut. When zonulin levels are high it increases mast cell degranulation which can lead to mast cell activation syndrome or mastocytosis. This increases histamines leading to autoimmunity and allergies. This also will correct itself once zonulin levels are reduce. Those with high zonulin levels should avoid gluten and gliaden until it is corrected because they raise zonulin levels. High zonulin and high inflammation levels has been linked to just about all types of chronic illness. Inflammation can cause high zonulin levels, high zonulin levels can lead to inflammation creating a cycle that is difficult to break. Inflammation disables the immune system and is why so many illnesses like tick born illness, candida and many other infections are becoming epidemic. Almost all illness can be link to zonulin.
Our gut microbiome regulate our zonulin levels which regulates the tight junction layer. When zonulin is high then we develop leaky gut which causes chronic illness and even effects our brains. Our gut bacteria even regulate our HPA axis. Microbes that increase IL-10, T regulatory cells and reduce inflammation will reduce zonulin levels which will restore the tight junction protein layer. Also stress increases zonulin so microbes that reduce stress will also decrease zonulin levels.
Our sterile lives have added to the increase in zonulin levels. Also nutrient deficiencies cause by over farming land and chemicals like glyphosate and glufosinate that chelate nutrients are causing nutrient deficiencies which increases zonulin. This indicates the the biome of our environment is also important for our health. It also indicates that our environment itself can influence our health.
Nutrient deficiencies also stimulate zonulin and so do bad fats and excessive meat consumption. Excess vitamin B12 increases zonulin levels. I do not supplement with it, I nurture my gut microbiota that produce it and I make sure I get cobalt which they need to produce B12. On the other end of the scale zonulin deficiency can result in the inability to absorb nutrients. This shows the importance of learning to achieve homeostasis. I cannot find studies showing that inhibited zonulin causes malabsorption but I have noticed those who have high levels of the bacteria that inhibit zonulin and low levels of the ones that stimulate zonulin have malabsorption issues.
High zonulin levels can lead to decreased intestinal motility which causes the food to sit in the digestive tract and ferment instead of digesting. This increases the ammonia, hydrogen, sulfide and methane producing microbes which raises zonulin levels even higher. If I ever get a chance to write a book I will cover it in more detail. Once this cycle starts it is very hard to break and a person will not be able to absorb nutrients because their food is not getting broken down properly.
So all this being said the bigger the variety of gut microbes we have the more balanced our zonulin becomes.
Butyrate producing microbiota increase TGF-B which is needed to prevent some commensals from becoming harmful. A deficiency in TGF-B can lead to inflammatory bowel disease which can cause bile to be inhibited. The most important of these are F Prausnitzii, Clostridium Leptum, Eubacterium Rectale and Roseburia. If deficient in IL-10 or TGF-B the microbiota that stimulates bile will become pathogenic in nature IL-10 and TGF-B work together to keep them in check so they continue to function properly. I discuss bile in more detail at the end of this article.
Raw potatoes, inulin, chickpeas and other legumes feed the gut bacteria that prevent gliaden and gluten intolerance. Too much of these can increase the glucose levels in the blood. That may be good for those with malabsorption but high glucose levels can lead to cancer and other health problems.
Increased CB1 receptor activation causes leaky gut which can lead to food intolerances from our gut becoming too porous. This can lead to increased LPS levels which can lead to endotoxemia and sepsis. Increased zonulin also does this. Stress increases zonulin.
The PH of the gut and bladder should be between 4 to 5. The lower the number the more acidic the high the number the more alkaline. We do not want alkaline it causes infection and gut dysbiosis. Candida and H Pylori will go from commensal to pathogenic.
Bloating can be from taking too much of a certain probiotic which can lead to dysbiosis , inflammation, ulcerations, or high histamines. High histamines will cause acid reflux. Low histamine inhibits bile and will cause bile reflux constipation and low stomach acid production. If you have low histamines fermented foods will increase the histamine producing bacteria but be cautious do not increase them too far. We can also become bloated if candid or H Pylori go from commensal to pathogenic.
Increased gut permeability (leaky gut) can lead to bone loss, autoimmunity, and many metabolic issues.
Our gut bacteria need carbohydrates but many avoid them. There are good carbs and bad carbs.
A microbiotia accessable carbohydrate diet increases beneficial bacteria that produce short chain fatty acid. This consist of fiber and carbohydrates. This increases the bacteria that produce short chain fatty acids. If we do not produce enough SCFA we will become constipated and bile production will become inhibited. This will also happen if we develop malabsorption from having high bacteroidetes, methane producing and sulfur digesting bacteria. They contribute to malabsorption, constipation and inhibited bile production from a lack of SCFA in the body. Our blood glucose levels will also become very low and we may develop high insulin levels. Clostridium infection is also a major cause of this and indicates we are lacking the microbiota that protect us from it. This can cause a cycle that is hard to break because bile is needed to prevent clostridium infection.
High histamines usually indicates low bifidobacterium levels. Bifidobacterium degrade histamines. Low Bifidobacterium can cause weight gain in some people and can lead to anxiety, difficulty sleeping and difficulty concentrating. Our histamine degrading bacteria need vitamins A,C, E and Zinc. Bifidobacterium which there are many species produce folate. Most Bifidobacterium increases IgA which prevents food intolerances and allergies. Bifidobacterium also break down gliaden. Excess gliaden can raise zonulin levels leading to the tight junction layer becoming more permeable resulting in leaky gut.
Lactobacillus needs vitamin A and consuming it has been shown to restore lactobacillus. Most lactobacillus prevent candida and fungus infections. Most Lactobacillus prevent lung infection. Most Lactobacillus increase IL-10. IL-10 is needed for commensalism. Those deficient in Lactobacillus will be extremely underweight.
Most probiotics should be taken with an oligosaccharide. They help feed them and get them established. Pectin also protects the good bacteria helping it to thrive. Olive oil has been found to prevent them from making TMAO. If TMAO levels get too high we can develop a fish like smell, diabetes and/or cardiovascular disease.
Lactobacillus Reuteri increases oxytocin which helps keep us calm and helps prevent depression. It also helps prevent diarrhea. It increases intestinal absorption of nutrients. It prevents cavities and promotes dental health. It protects against pathogens and parasites. It has been shown to help with autism. L Reuteri produces food need by most of the other commensal bacteria. It requires sugar to produce the food the commensal microbes need. L reuteri also help prevent asthma. Helps restore normal vaginal and bladder microbiome. If you are sensitive to sugars and starches it could be an indication you are deficient in L Reuteri. L Reuteri breaks down sugars and starches. A deficiency in Lactobacillus Reuteri can also contribute to milk allergy and a lower resistance to pain. It prevents gingivitis and periodontal disease. It helps keep H Pylori commensal. L Reuteri improves the production of bile.
Clostrium Leptum has been found to be low in those with inflammatory bowel disease and Chohn’s disease. It breaks down carbohydrates and produces butyrate. It reduces inflammation.
I believe L Reuteri and L Fermentum are the same species. Often times research papers state that they are the same species.
Lactobacillus Fermentum found in raw goats milk protects from urinary tract infection and food born pathogens. It has been shown to increase other lactobacillus bacteria. This would help those who have difficulty gaining weight. It is resistant to most antibiotics and has been found to transfer that ability to the other but microbes. This also would help with lactos intolerance. L Fermentum prevents skin rashes and eczema By increasing TH1. It prevents IgA related allergic disease. L fermentum helps prevent urinary infection. Low I IgA levels are common in inflammatory bowel disease and those who have malabsorption disorders. Reduces endotoxins. Helps protect from cavities and gingivitis.
Bacteroides Vulgatus increases bile production, if levels are low a person is susceptible to inflammatory bowel disease. If levels get too high a person will develop celiac disease. This occurs if a person is lacking the microbiotia that stimulate IL-10, SMAD3 and TGFB.
Pediococcus pentosaceus prevents clostridium infection of the digestive system by reducing zonulin. This would improve bile production. It also reduces inflammation. It produces natural antibiotics that fight bacteria.
Bacillus Coagulins prevents lactose intolerance. Helps break down food better increasing nutrient absorption. Helps prevent diarrhea. Prevents gas, bloating and intestinal inflammation. Helps prevent constipation. Reduces endotoxins. Improves bladder and vaginal health. Helps keep H Pylori commensal.
Bacillus Subtilis produces food needed by the other commensal microbes has been shown to balance the gut microbiome. It prevents gastrointestinal and urinary tract infection. It is found in soil. It stimulates IgM, and IgG which important part of immune function. Protects the DNA and has antioxidant properties. Helps prevent diabetes and cardiovascular disease. If it is supplied with lactulose which is found in raw milk but destroyed during pasteurization it will prevent constipation. It reduces inflammation and has been shown to reverse irritable bowel disease. It Balances our T cells which would prevent allergies and autoimmunity. It prevents H Pylori and Candida from becoming pathogenic. Reduces endotoxins and heals the liver and kidneys. It prevents skin rashes and lesions. It increases our ability to tolerate heat. Helps break down phytic acid preventing it from being and antinutrient. B Subtilis has been shown to reduce blood pressure and prevent atherosclerosis. B Subtilis communicates with the body to let is know what is going on. It kind of acts like a soldier and a nurse. It stimulates IFN-y in spleens of mammals which is an important part of the bodies ability to fight infections. Seems more important for fighting infection then dendric cells and natural killer cells. IFN-y prevent viruses from being able to adhere to cells. Increasing IFN-y increases CD8 molecules. Those who are TH1 dominant should avoid this strain it increases TH1.
Lactobacillus sanfranciscensis helps degrade phytate preventing them from being and antinutrient. Decreases gut permeability and prevents obesity. Reduces symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease. It is found in raw sour bread dough.
Lactobacillus pentosus found in fermented olive products. It helps prevent food born pathogens. It helps break down carbohydrates. Helps reduce symptoms of lactose intolerance. It can break down a wide variety of sugars and carbohydrates.
Lactobacillus Salivarius reduces histamines. Protects the throat, mouth and nasal cavities from infection. It helps prevent cavities. They help keep the ph of the intestines balanced.

It protects us from getting strept throat and halitosis. It lowers cortisol levels and reduces stress and anxiety. L Slivarius increases endurance. Helps prevent lactose intolerance. It prevents flatulence. Has been shown to protect the pancreas. Has been shown to reverse dermatitis.
Oxabacter Formigenes reduces oxalates and reduces pain. It is the primary oxalate degrading bacteria in the gut.
Lactobacillus Paracasei inhibits infection and helps reduce ammonia producing bacteria. It is a subspecies of Lactobacillus Casei which has many of the same benefits. It also prevents anxiety but not depression. L paracasei especiall ssp Casei prevents obesity. L Casei reduces the duration of infections. L Paracasei helps prevent allergies. L paracasei and ssp L Casei should not be taken by those with high histamines. It prevents halitosis and cavities. It has been shown to protect the nasal cavities, mouth and throat from infection.
L Casei protects us from pathogens that cause diarrhea and antibiotic induced diarrhea. It improves colon health and inceases the commensal bacteria that help prevent depression and anxiety. Helps protect the gums from infection. Has been shown to protect the health of the pancreas. Increases IL-10 and TGF-B.
Lactobacillus Casei ssp shirota prevents constipation. Increases serotonin. It improves mood and prevents depression. It has the best long term effects at improving mood.
Lactobacillus Brevis prevents urinary and intestinal infection by regulating the PH of the digestive system and renal system. It helps keep it from getting too akaline. Lactobacillus Brevis improves cellular immunity it protects the gut from excess bile acids and keeps H Pylori commensal. It produces natural antibiotics that protect the gut from pathogens.
Streptococcus Thermophilus is needed by most of the gut bacteria to get established especially lactobacillus debrueckii. S Thermophilus helps with lactose intolerance. It prevents cavities and infection in the nose, throat and mouth. Helps prevent inflammatory bowel diseases. It accelerates healing in the gut.
Lactobacillus Debrueckii is needed to establish the commensal microbiome and to prevent C Diff infection. It also prevents inflammation. It is found in butter milk.

Saccharomyces Boulardii helps prevent autoimmunity, protects from diarrhea caused by pathogens. Helps keep H Pylori commensal. Helps prevent inflammatory bowel. Saccharomyces Boulardii helps with gluten intolerance and reduces symptoms of SIBO.
Bifidobacterium bifidum helps in the production of many B vitamins. Prevents celiac diseas, milk allergies and many other food sensitivities. Reduces histamines. Improves immune function. Prevents ulcers and diarrhea. It is important for vaginal homeostasis. Has been shown to reduce symptoms of inflammatory bowel diseases. Prevents constipation and lung infection. Prevents pouchitis and infections in the lining of the intestines. Has been found to improve immune function. Prevents eczema. It also produces the B vitamins common to Bifidobacterium but also produces vitamin K2. It helps those who do not produce enough lactase because it breaks down lactose. Increases red blood cell production helping to prevent anemia. Has been shown to reduce the severity of the flu and common colds.
Bacillus Coagulans found in the soil , it improves bowel movements, helps with inflammatory bowel diseases, reduces bloating and pain in the digestive system. It also decrease the inflammatory C-reactive protein which is high during infection. It reduces intestinal gas. Reduces the risk of infection especially by influenza.

It also produces oligosaccharides which feed our good gut microbes. It helps produce SCFA which are needed by the body and our microbiome. It helps maintain the shape and health of the mucous membrane in the gut. Low levels of Akkermansia Muciniphila results in a thinner mucous membrane making us more prone to infection and inflammatory bowel diseases. A deficiency in Akkermansia can result in appendicitis. Arabinoxylin, Inulin , fructoligosaccharide, oligofructose increases Akkermansia. Polyphenols in pomegranate, grapes, grape seed extract , and navy beans increase Akkermansia. Cod liver oil also increases Akkermansia. When there is a wound in the gut Akkermansia will go to the site of the wound and signal the body it needs to repair that area. This is one of the most important microbes for gut health. If we are deficient in it bacteroidetes leves get to high, bile production becomes inhibited and our bodies do not secrete pancreatic enzymes. I discuss the consequences of high bacteroidetes levels at the end of this post. Increased CB1 receptor activation reduces Akkermansia, inhibiting CB1 receptor increases Akkermansia but inhibiting CB1 increases depression and anxiety. Akkermansia needs Faecalibacterium Prausnitzii and vice versa. There is research showing if Akkermansia levels get too high it can increase zonulin levels so though it is a key mcirobiota in the regulation of our health homeostasis should always be the goal.
Clostridium Butyricum help prevent many food born pathogens, helps produce short chain fatty acids, it prevents diabetes and helps keep the sulfur digesting and ammonia producing bacteria like Bacteroidetes and Firmicutes from getting too high. If those are high a person can develop diabetes, malabsorption from inhibited bile production and inflammation. It prevents insulin resistance. Clostridium Bytyricum also protect from bartonella.
Faecalibacterium Prausnitzii Faecalibacterium a deficiency can lead to irritable bowel syndrome. Produces butyrate from fiber. A deficiency in F Prausnitzii can lead to asthma, obesity, depression ,Chohn’s disease and inflammatory bowel diseases. A deficiency in this can lead to high TH17 levels resulting in psoriasis. Those with cardiovascular disease and Type 2 diabetes are usually low in F Prausnitzii. Akkermanis Municiphila needs it and vice versa. Prevents inflammation.
It also helps balance the immune system. It needs Akkermansia to thrive. Oligosaccharides increase F. Prausnitzii. It prevents celiac disease. It induces IL-10. It is necessary for fatty acid oxidation. It produces butyrate. It produces Salicyclic acid which is what they make aspirin from. It produces raffinose a type of oligosaccharide that decreases gut permeability which prevents leaky gut. It along with other commensals form biofilms that help protect and heal the gut. Decreases zonulin which preserves the integrity of the tight protein layer. If zonulin levels get too high a person will develop lactose, gluten and gliadin intolerance.
Enterococcus faecium prevents listeria infection and prevents infection from it’s pathogenic cousins. There is a human species which is non pathogenic and an animal species and the animal species is pathogenic to humans. I view this one as a dangerous pathogen even though it is used in probiotics when the body is weak it can make a person very very ill.
Weissella Cibaria also prevents halitosis, cavities, and this one also reduces skin lesions. It also reduces Hydrogen Sulfide and inhibits biofilms. Weisella Cibaria is found in kimchi and fermented milk. It prevents inflammation caused by endotoxins. It also prevent Nirtic oxide induced by endotoxins and promotes the healing of intestinal epithelial cells. It inhibits biofilm formation of pathogenic microbes.

Odoribacter Splanchnicus a loss of Odoribacter causes a loss of SCFA availibility which leads to inflammation and low glucose levels. Deficiency in O Splanchnicus can lead to hypertension and diabetes. Low levels of O Splanchnicus can also lead to interstitial cystitis. It is important for absorption of nutrients and in maintaining a healthy gut. Has been shown to prevent atherosclerosis. Requires glucose, galactose, salicin, trehalose, arabinose, fructose or mannose. Inhibits many of the sulfur digesting bacteria that can cause high sulfite levels and high hydrogen sulfide levels. O Splanchnicus also breaks down phytoestrogens found in many plants.
Lactinifactor Longoviformis breaks down phytoestrogens found in many plants.
Arthrobacter Agilis it produces carotenoids which the body can convert to vitamin A. It reduces the risk of Parkinson’s disease. They degrade many pesticides. It prevents fungus infection but I am not comfortable with Arthobacter species because some of them produce antifreeze and I cannot find any research to show with this one did or not. I do not feel this is a safe probiotic and I have not spoken to anyone who had used it.
Eubacterium Halli it produces butyurate from acetate, glucose and lactate. It produces vitamin B12. It is important for homeostasis in the body and produces SCFA. It improves insulin sensitivity and normalizes blood glucose levels. It cannot process complex carbohydrate and needs bifidobacterium to exist. It makes some carcinogens harmless.
Arthrobacter Globiformis uses sugar as it’s main source of food. It uses sugar and ammonia. It’s byproducts are nitrogen and hydralimine. I do not know the health effects of these but it can break down many toxins in the enviroment but I do not feel comfortable using these as a probiotic I have not seen enough research on the use of this. Their are many of the Arthrobacter species that are used for probiotics and almost all of them break down some form of toxin but I cannot find research on their safety or effectiveness.
Pediococcus acidilactici it has been shown to reduce gastrointestinal distress. It prevents infections by food born pathogens and has been shown to stop bloody diarrhea. It also prevents constipation. Has been show to stop excessive vomiting. It has been shown to fight pathogenic parasites. It increases IL-10 and T regulatory cells which would balance the immune system. It has also been shown to fight fungal infections.
Most Bacillus species convert genotoxic substances to non toxic substances. Bacillus species are found in the soil and in humans. Some can be pathogenic. Man soil based bacteria improve nutrient absorption. There are other strains of Bacillus species but I did not list them because they have the ability to produce endotoxins. Bacillus species help break down food better which improves nutrient absorption. They should be taken with food or they do not get established well. Many of the Bacillus species secrete amylase and lipase. Amylase helps break down carbohydrates and lipase breaks down fats. Bacillus species may help those with malabsorption issues. Bacillus species detox a lot of toxins including mycotoxins found in fungus and molds. Mycotoxins can cause birth defects, sterility, it can increase estrogen levels. Most bacillus species can detox mycotoxins zearalenone, and aflatoxin but other mycotoxins that get broke down are species specific. Most Bacillus species train the immune system on how to fight pathogens. Most bacillus species reduce the risk of diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Most bacillus species help prevent leaky gut and promote healing of the gut.
Bacillus Lacterosporous is found in soil and humans. It fights fungus. Helps prevent leaky gut. It also fights mycoplasma infection. I have not seen studies on the effectiveness or safety of this microbe.
Bacillus Firmis promotes the differentiation of B lymphocytes to Ig producing and secreting cells. It stimulates the repair of blood vessels.
Bacillus Clausii stimulates the production of IgA but requires GALT. Prevents lung infections has been used successfully to treat those who get recurrent respiratory infections. Has also been used successfully to treat acute diarrhea. Studies show it is safe for human consumption. It protects the body from endotoxins.
Bacillus Licheniformis prevents biofilm formation of pathogens. Prevents the build up of amyloid plaque which contributes to amyloidosis and Alzheimer’s. Amyloid can also destroy beta cells leading to diabetes.
Bacteroides Fragilis promotes the production of GALT.
Phages P. Aerugonosa protect against E Faicalis and many food born pathogens.
Bacteroidetes- there are many species. Meat consumption increases their numbers. If bacteroidetes get too high it can result in weight gain or weight loss from malabsorption. It can cause the inability to absorb fats preventing bile production. It can cause the pancreatic enzymes to become inhibitited and cause phenylketonuria which results in high ammonia levels. It can cause BH4 enzyme deficiency, which can lead to CBS upregulation which can lead to high sulfite levels. This can cause the citric acid cycle to shut down leading to high estrogen levels, high unbound copper levels which farther inhibit the bodies ability to produce bile. This farther increases estrogen levels and levels of unbound copper. This lead to inflammatory bowel disease and malabsorption issues. A person with high Bacteroidetes levels will be high in butyrate and proprianic acid, acetate levels may be high also. They will be low in malanic acid. This also leads to high ammonia levels which causes many other health issues and causes Candida and H pylori to go from commensal to pathogenic. Many with this problem will develop bile acid gird. This also makes someone prone to clostridium infection along with many other pathogens.
If this persist long enough a person can develop interstitial cystitis. This is a common problem in those born by C section and who are formula feed. This also leads to a lot of food intolerances especially milk and glutin along with gliaden. This also can result in thiamine deficiency.
Consuming high amounts of meat can result in high bacteroidetes, methane producing bacteria and increased sulfur digesting bacteria. This can result in high levels of sulfite which will interfere with sulfation and cause many health issues. It can also cause high levels of hydrogen sulfide which will lower blood pressure at first then if levels get high enough it will increase blood pressure and cause severe inflammation. Bile production and production of pancreatic enzyme will become inhibited. High sulfite levels makes a person more susceptable to Salmonella infection. This also inhibits bile production. Butyrate ;producing bacteria help restore bile production.
Another thing that inhibits bile production is extended use of antibiotics. It reduces our good gut microbiome. Muscrarlis Macrophages detect our good gut microbiomes LPS. With the decrease in our good gut microbiome and loss of their LPS to signal muscarlis macrophages dysbiosis occurs which leads to inhibited intestinal motility which causes a loss of bile production and pancreatic enzyme production. Supplementing with commensal LPS has been shown to reduce the symptoms and increase bile flow.
A loss of bile production prevents nutrient absorption, the pancreas will not receive the feedback from our intestines and will quit producing enzymes. This result in malabsorption especially of oil soluble nutrients because bile is need to break down fats. This will also cause LDL levels to get low and HDL levels to because high. This imbalance causes HDL to become inflammatory.
A loss of serrotonin producing gut bacteria negatively impact gut health. Tryptophan helps restore gut health. Strange thing is the first three or four days I took tryptophan I had a herx type reaction. It must have been from die off of the bad gut microbes as the good increased. This can lead to damage to the central nervous system.
Grape seed extract helps restore bile flow.
If normal bile function is not restored it effects the whole body and can lead to diabetes.
Good articles on reducing candida when it turns pathogenic.
Sometimes people confuse candida with gut dysbiosis.
If our ammonia levels get high then H Pylori will turn pathogenic to protect itself. When in commensal form it prevents allergies. When H pylori is in pathogenic form it inhibit ghrelin which inhibits digestion and can cause food to sit in the gut and ferment leading to bloating, dybiosis and can inhibit digestive enzymes.
I am not going to cover histamines in this post I will address it in a post on over and under methylators because high and low histamines can cause over or under methylation. Leaky gut, inflammation and status of our immune system can effect methylation.
Now connect this with my other post and you will see that there is no doubt that germ theory and terrain theory are not correct and that our Facebook groups theory “Enveroment and Biome Theory of Health is correct.
Here is a list of my articles on health that will support my case.
Improtance of human photosynthesis in health.
Why so many are experiencing gender identity crisis.
We can expect diabetes to rise because of all these things.
You can use the above mentioned information to help with hypertension.
Compare the above mentioned things and the things that occur within the body and you can make the connection to the gut. This list the many things that can go wrong and how to use nutrients to help heal.
Even allopathic medicine is contributing to the chronic illness and the poor health of modern day society so they are the bad environmental part.
Even our brain gets effected.
We are taught that things like genetics are inherited but it is our eating habits and microbiome that gets inherited and they are things that can be changed. Even asthma we are taught is inherited but I have seen many in my life correct it and live a normal life and never suffer from it again.
We are told that our genes are written and cannot be changed but science is finding that is not true.
Stomach problems they claim runs in families but it is actually the gut microbiome they inherited and can be corrected.
Many have problems with lipid metabolism now days. They claim it is inherited genetics but when I ask people if anyone else in there family suffered from it they say no. So how can it can they inherit something no one else ever experienced in their families?
The above mentioned things should help with liver disease also.
Many things like COPD are set off by infection or toxins. By now you should know that most supposed pathogens actually help the body unless we have too many toxins or we are lacking a nutrient.
This is why cancer is so rampant. Cancer is pretty much caused by man and the environment men have created.
Our enviroment and biome can effect our health by causing excess oxidative stress.
Now you can see why tick born illness is rampant. Thing that usually would not usually effect man is now causing illness. Infection indicates there is a nutrient deficiency or enviromental toxin or enviromental biome issue. Something is out of balance. Man is viewing symptoms like cancer, diabetes, and mental illness as the cause and they are symptoms of underlying problem.
Vaccination are one of the biggest contributors of modern illness.
This is why detoxing is so important now days. Even our food has become toxic. Organic helps reduce the impact of mans destruction of our environment and the human and planetary biome.
They know their science is fake so they use every tactic they can to hide that fact.
If you have read this then by now it have figured out it is not your genes but your enviroment, inner and outer biome and not your genes that effect your health.
Histamine homeostasis is very important in fighting chronic illness.
Since modern day illness is causing chronic illness by destroying our gut we need to work on restoring it to heal. Leaky gut causes endotoxemia. I listed in the microbe list above which ones reduce endotoxins. It also causes high oxalates so you will have to work on reducing them.
All these things are types of autoimmunity and we need to restore our immune system back to homeostasis.
Interstitial cystitis and vaginitis are some of the worst autoimmune disorders to deal with because our modern day environment makes it difficult to acheive homeostasis in the areas effected.
Constipation can lead to inflammatory bowel disease and inhibited bile productin and is caused by an imbalance in our gut microbiome. It can lead to chronic illness.
I noticed that those with dysbiosis had issues when the consumed or took tryptophan. This study suggest that SERT might be upregulated in dysbiosis which wold explain why tryptophan made them worse. Sert is the serotonin transporter.
There are those who say but things like H Pylori cause illness. So how could that prove what your are saying. H Pylori just like many of our beneficial bacteria only cause problems when something has changed to cause it to occur. They say yeah but there is strains that are pathogenic and strains that are not. Well the biggest part of the population is believe to have the supposed pathogenic strain of H Pylori. So you have to ask why doesn’t everyone get gastric ulcers?
Even our good gut bacteria can cause illness if we have digestive problems.
Our food and water is so toxic now it has a negative impact on our guts. The crazy thing is some of these toxins are found in vaccines so imagine what they are doing when they are being directly shot into peoples blood streams.
Desulfibrio species digest sulfur which produces H2S. If H2S levels get too high it can cause many health issues. B Thetamiomicron free sulfur which feeds Desulfibrio species. They cannot free it themselves. Mercury and lead increase Desulfibrio species. Excess H2S can lead to constipation. This is why high levels of Akkermansia and Desulfibrio results in inflammatory bowel diseases, gall stones and many other diesease. Not getting enough fermentable carbohydrates increases sulfur digesting microbes.
It is listed among the bacteria that increases the risk of heart disease and diabetes.
Glycomacropeptide found in whey protein and fermentable fiber reduces sulfur digesting bacteria. Fermentable fibers are pectin, Beta-glucan found in mushrooms and oatmeal, guar gum, inulin and oligosaccharides. If a person is not used to getting them they will have to ease into them. Until the body is used to getting them they will cause bloating and gas. As the body gets used to them the symptoms will slowly decrease. Psyllium should be avoided it has been found to make the symptoms worse.
Those with inflammatory bowel and gut dysbiosis usually have high levels of H2S being produced by their gut microbes. Fructooligosaccharide and Resistant starch decreases H2S but psyllium increases it so psyllium should be avoided.
Strange lactulose is in raw milk increases Hydrogen production but it helped me.
Now we do not want to completely rid ourselves of the H2S producing microbes because they are needed to keep us health. We want to try and restore homeostasis. For those with high sulfur digesting bacteria a glass of non sulfur wine may help.
High H2S levels can effect sulfation by inhibiting sulfur detoxification. It can even effect the antioxidant system. High H2S levels also inhibits nNOS. It can be countered by increasing NADPH and BH4.
Methane producing bacteria can also cause constipation leading to inflammatory bowel diseases. Those with high methane levels usually suffer from nausea, will feel full and bloated, may experiencing vomiting. They will have milk intolerance because the sugars in milk feed methane producing bacteria. They will experience bouts of severe depression. Constipation causes bile to become inhibited resulting in similar health problems as those who have high sulfur digesting bacteria.
For those with dysbiosis from high methane producing bacteria should not drink alcohol it can make it worse.
Those with methane producing dysbiosis need to avoid fermentable carbohydrates and lactulose found in milk products. I know those feed the good gut bacteria but they also feed the gut bacteria that produce hydrogen which feeds the methane producing bacteria.
Methane producing bacteria out compete Sulfur digesting bacteria for H2 unless sulfate is present.
This surprised me the same microbes that feed the sulfur digesting bacteria also feed the methane producing bacteria. Firmicutes and bacteroides is high in both types of dysbiois.
This is another commonality that I have found with those who have inflammatory bowel from too many sulfur digesting and too many methane producing is they both had low bacteroides fragilis levels. I am cautious recommending this because if level get too high it can cause health problems.
Bacteroides vulgatis and Bacteroides Dorei are usually low in both types of inflammatory bowel and can lead to cardiovascular disease. Seems there is an easy fix for this. Eating walnuts. This should help Both types of inflammatory bowel issues.
Excessive methane production or excessive hydrogen production can cause malabsorption. So both should be measured in those with malabsorption issues.
Alcohol consumption should be avoided with methane producers because it increases methane.
The gut microbes are dramatically different in those with NAFLD.
When you look at studies on cirrhosis of the liver. The things that help NAFLD seem to be things that improve oxidation which leads me to believe they are low oxidizers. But alcohol liver disease seems more inflammatory. But they both have links to the gut. Very interesting report.
If a person craves sugar it may mean their lactobacillus acidophilus levels are too high.
Microbes interact with our mitochondria including our gut microbes.
Chemicals in our environment and those pushed by the pharmaceutical industry change our external environment which is killing the commencile pathogens that keep the pathogenic ones in check. This is a common theme now days. When someone gets and infection they either have high toxin levels, were taking allopathic medications or had a nutrient deficiency. All those effect our commensals that protect us from their pathogenic cousins.
Some functional food that help straighten the gut out.
Probiotics and their effects on autoimmune disease.
And yes autoimmunity can lead to mental illness that is why vaccine damage the brain.
Using the information on probiotics above you can see the connection between the gut and arthritis.
Those with Trimethylaminuria may be deficient in sulfur digesting bacteria. This would reduce TMAO in the plasma. Could Trimethylaminuria be from a deficiency in methane producing and enterobacteriaceae?
How microbes effect neurological stress.
This report shows why it is important to address leaky gut and gut dysbiosis. It can damage the kidneys.
Methylation issues must be addressed before you can get your gut to heal.
IL-22 is needed to protect us from pathogens and to stimulate FUT2. If we are deficient in certain gut microbiota that stimulate FUT2. We will have immune issues and gut dysbiosis because FUT2 keeps our good gut microbes health.
ILC3 is needed for our gut microbiome to communicate with the body to increase FUT2. ILC3 is secreted by our gut microbiome.
Oligosaccharide helps if someone is deficient in FUT2
If the immune system is out of balance IL-22 can be upregulated causing illness. This is why the microbiome that increase T regulatory cell and decrease inflammation are important and reducing endotoxins is also important.
IBS with constipations is IBS-C, IBS with diarrhea is IBS-D, IBS that is mixed is IBS-M. Most I have met have IBS-C and it is why I post on constipation a lot.
5-HT(serotonin) helps regulate gut motility.
Lactobacillus Rhamnosus GG increases 5-HT uptake .This would help those who have diarrhea but will decrease motility adding to the problem for those who have constipation type inflammatory bowel. 5-HT plasma levels in those who have diarrhea is low and in those who have consipation it is high. E Coli Nissle 1917 increases 5-HT bioavailibility. F Prausnitzi A2-165 down regualates 5-HT which may help those with constipation type inflammatory bowel. Some of the studies were done poorly but there is useful information in them. They also list some microbiota that can improve motility.
There are three forms of IBS. IBS-D involves diarrhea, IBD-C involves constipation and IBD-M is a mix of both. Serotonin regulates gut motility and enzyme secretion. Damage to the digestive system and leaky Gut effects GLP-1’s ability to sense nutrients. 5-HT is involved in the regulation of gut motility and enzymes. It depends on GLP-1 and serotonin. Gut our gut bacteria regulate serotonin and GLP-1. The type of microbes involved in the dysbiosis determines which type of IBS a person will suffer from.
Healing the brain and addressing high zonulin levels and restoring the gut bacteria and addressing neurological issues are necessary to restore proper gut brain communication. Inflammation must also be addressed.
How metabolic issues disrupt the communication with our gut.
Our genes communicate with our gut bacteria.
Our genes can be altered by our environment and what we put in them.
A good article on the immune system and our gut.
This is not medical advice I am posting this for informational and educational purposes.
In order for melanin to produce energy carboxylation is necessary. If the citric acid cycle is not functioning then carboxylation will be inhibited and so will melanins ability to produce energy.
Melanin is photoelectric.
Human photosynthesis helps prevent alhzheimer’s.
Human photosynthesis helps prevent chronic disease.
Human photosynthesis produces ATP.
Difference between plant and human photosynthesis.
Humans can also capture energy from chlorophyll and is probably the reason we have more energy after we eat greens.
Melanin protects us from ionizing radiation by converting it to electricity. What a shocking discovery, sorry lol I couldn’t resist.
This is not medical advice I am posting this for informational and educational purposes.
To have success in preventing loss of teeth you need to address infections and health issues. I did this to prevent any more loss of teeth and farther bone loss but my bone did not grow back until I had addressed my Lyme disease and the health issues it caused. Something that provides minerals needed is water from a volcanic source or hot spring.
I have watched friends repair cavities by remineralizing them with proper nutritional support and coconut oil flushing. They used straight coconut oil but I have Lyme and it was also causing bone loss so I modified things a bit to help fight the infection and stop the bone loss the Lyme was causing. I got angry because for 5 years dentist would not help me because they said it was not gingivitis so they did not know what to do. When I would go to a doctor they would tell me it was a dental problem and they could not help me. I wish my Facebook friends would have taught me this sooner because I started pulling my teeth and pulled three of them before they posted this. It did save the rest of my teeth though. Because diets do not contain enough healthy animal fats now days to be able to absorb oil soluble vitamins and glyphosate and over farming cause our food to be less nutritious our health and the health of our teeth are declining.
I did not measure I just dumped the stuff in I do that when I cook so I cannot give you the right amounts I would say to do some research. I will estimate the amounts.
In 10 ounces of coconut oil put about 1/8 teaspoon of powdered vitamin C.
Add about a table spoon of cinnamon and a table spoon of curcumin.
Add about a tablespoon of xylitol to the coconut oil.
Mixed it around and let it set for about a week. If you prefer you can use warm water to melt it to make it mix better. Then after letting it set you can repeat the process by setting the container in warm water and then use a filter to filter the coconut oil.
Then take a huge heaping tablespoon full and swish it around in your mouth for at least 15 minutes before bed at night. When finished gargle with it then spit it out but do not rinse go to bed and you will wake up and be pleasantly surprised you will not have the morning gunk that many get even when they brush before bed.
The vitamin C and xylitol helps prevent and fight infection.
As for diet try to avoid processed sugar especially processed can sugar and processed fructose.
Here is are links with great information on nutrient needed for healthy teeth.
Read the comments on this link very interesting.
Lyme may get into the dentin in teeth so this will have to continue for quite a while.
Do not use fluoride or drink fluorinated water. Fluoride makes the teeth brittle.
Brushing your teeth with toothpaste that contains hydroxyapetite also helps remineralize the teeth.
If you smoke stop , smoking has been shown to cause gingivitis.
If you have digestive issues they must be addressed.
Bacteria like lactobacillus, streptoccocus salvarius, streptoccocus mitis, Prevent infection in the mouth nose and through and also help prevent cavities and dental plaque. E Coli Nisle 1977 prevents infection in the mouth and helps prevent halitosis.
Lactobacillus Plantarum prevents biofilm formation in the mouth.
Lactobacillus plantarum prevents oral biofilms, Bifidobacterium and Lactobaccilus Rhamnosus helped prevent cavities. Lactobacillus Salvarius helps prevent dental plaque.
Lactobacillus Reuteri reduces dental plaque, prevents periodontal disease and reduces inflammation. Bifidobacterium Animalis prevents bone loss and gingivitis. Bacillus Subtilis, Bacillus Licheniformis and Lactobaccilus Brevis also prevent bone loss. L Brevis CD2 reduces inflammation and prevents gingivitis. Lactobacillus Rhamnosus, Lactobacillus Casei Shirota, Lactobacillus Reuteri and Bifidobacterium prevents cavities. Streptococcus Dentisani and Streptococcus Salivaries M18 produce bacteriocins which kill harmful microbes they prevent gingivitis and infection.
Lactobacillus Planatarum, Lactobacillus Paracasei, Lactobacillus Salivarius, and Lactobacillus Rhamnosus have antimicrobial properties. Lactobacillus Salivarius and Lactobacillus Gasseri prevent halitosis and prevent opportunistic infections. Weissella Cibaria also prevents halitosis this one also reduces skin lesions.
Streptococcus Thermophilus is a subspecies of Streptococcus Salivarius and has many of the health benefits of Salivarius and also helps with metabolic issues. The commensal Streptococcus strains of microbiota help prevent strept throat.
Though many of these strains can probably be purchased in probiotics I am not going to research that. That is up to the reader.
Streptococcus Salivarius K12 prevents ear infections, inflammation and cavities. This and other beneficial Streptococcus Salivarius strains are used in some yogurts and cheeses so they could be a source of these strains.
Streptococcus Thermophilus is used in low fat cheese so that could be a source of it.
Lactobacillus Plantarum is found in fermented foods and aged meats.
Lactobacillus Paracasei , Lactobacillus Rhamnosus,Lactobacillus Gasseri is found in fermented foods like fermented vegetables or fermented milk products.
Weissella Cibaria is found in Kimchi, and raw milk.
Lactobacillus Reuteri would be found in sour dough but would not survive the cooking process so would have to be purchased in a probiotic.
Bifidobacterium Animalis is found in raw milk and fermented milk products.
Bacillus Subtilis and Bacillus Licheniformis is found in the soil and soil based probiotics.
Lactobaccilus Brevis is found in fermented foods like sauerkraut and fermented pickles.
Lactobacillus Casei Shirota normally has to be purchased and is used to ferment some beverages.
As for the Bifidobacterium I believe the only source I could find was raw milk and probiotics.
Now for bone loss using soup bones and cooking them for 24 hours and consuming the broth will give the nutrient needed for the body to restore lost bone.
Silica is needed for new bone growth.
I have seen doctors push medications even when there was nothing wrong with someone. I have seen them prescribe medication even when they knew the person was having an adverse reaction to the drug they would just prescribe them another drug to try and hide the adverse reaction to the first and so on and so on. A person ends up taking ten different prescriptions at a time. It made me ask why do they push medications so much? I found the answers they make a lot of money from the pharmaceutical industry and the more money they make the pharmaceutical industry the more money the pharmaceutical industries pays them and the more gifts they give them. Just one free meal has been shown to sway a physician. By the time a student has graduated they have become conditioned to respond positively to the pharmaceutical industry and blindly listen to them without questioning their motives or truthfulness.
This is nothing new the tobacco industry paid medical professionals to promote their products as safe and even as being beneficial.
Even today this still goes on and the pharmaceutical industry pays people to ghost write. So modern day pharmaceutical research is just another version of tobacco science. Vioxx is and example of this happening and just as the ill effects of tobacco were hidden so were the ill effects of Vioxx.
We cannot count on our politicians to protect us because most of them have been bought by the pharmaceutical industry.
Major amounts of money is spent to influence medical professionals decision making to favor the pharmaceutical industry.
The pharmaceutical companies start grooming medical professionals while they are still in school. It has been shown to influence their practice and prescribing habits.
You can research how much the drug companies kickback to doctors and medical institutions at these links.
The pharmaceutical companies paid to have opioid promoted and caused the opioid epidemic. They have a lot of blood on their hands.
Studies have shown that how much money and gifts are kicked back to medical institutions and doctors influence how often they prescribe certain medications. The more the kick backs the more likely they were to prescribe them.
After studies like this one they passed laws to try to prevent it from occurring but the pharmaceutical industry have found ways around it.
Even the educational institutions medical institutions have not adequately addressed the conflicts of interest.
It is unlikely much will be done about it or the laws will be enforced because many of our politicians are funded by the pharmaceutical industry. It is destroying the reliability and credibility of moder medicine.
Doctors are not trained to see the missing data or bias in pharmaceutical research so they take it at it’s word even though often times it has been found to be flawed.
This is a website that follows the pharmaceutical money trail to politicians , medical institutions, educational institutions and medical professionals.
Unlike most research that has been proven flawed pharmaceutical research that has been proven flawed does not get restracted.
Much of the medical research is flawed and the truth of the results hidden. They influence the scientist to embellish the results to put things in a favorable light.
Research replication is supposed to be a way of testing the validity of the results but most research cannot be replicated. Yet the research is published and accepted by the medical community.
This is not medical advice I am posting this for informational and educational purposes.
There are many myths about cholesterol that is propagated by the pharmaceutical industry to boost their profits and by the medical community out of ignorance. They are taught to believe things that are not scientifically or factually true about fat and cholesterol. In feeding the pharmaceutical greed machine they are causing a lot of suffering and will be held accountable by God. These links show the truth about heart disease, cholesterol and fats. At the end of this I listed things that may help with heart disease. The beginning shows the truth about cholesterol and the rest discusses how statins actually contributed to increased mortality and declining health especially mental health.
Symptoms of low cholesterol.
Low cholesterol can increase risk of death.
The believed HDL was good cholesterol and LDL was bad but they are finding you need a balance of the two. If HDL levels get too high it can cause inflammation. Inflammation lead to heart disease.
I posted links to information on how to lower cholesterol at the end of this post. For now lets address the myths surrounding cholesterol.
There was a man who ate 25 eggs a day all his life and was very healthy.
There are many benefits to cholesterol in the diet.
Worlds most renown heart specialist speak out about the true cause of heart disease.
Cholesterol protects us from infections.
There is no link between high cholesterol and heart disease.
Low cholesterol levels have been linked to higher mortality rates.
High cholesterol is linked to lower mortality.
Simple reasoning should have people thinking fat and cholesterol have been dramatically reduce in the diet in the U.S. , yet obesity and heart disease has climbed dramatically.
Here is another good website with links to information on cholesterol.
For those who like watching videos here is a video on cholesterol and heart health.
Here is another video with the best advice I have seen on lowering blood pressure.
A high egg diet does not cause a higher risk of cardiovascular disease.
Eating eggs improves our good cholesterol levels and does not increase the oxLDL or increased it very little.
Even if eggs raise LDL levels those with high LDL levels have a lower risk of heart disease and diabetes.
Observational studies have shown that eating eggs does not increase cholesterol and in some instances it improved lipid profiles.
Cholesterol protects us from inflammation.
Eggs actually improve our antioxidant satus especially if the chickens are fed a diet high in antioxidants. Free range chickens eat a lot of antioxidant rich foods.
Not all eggs are the same there is a nutritional difference between free range and caged chicken eggs. Free range have more nutrients.
Processed sugar causes hardening of the arteries. The sugar industry started the myth about cholesterol and fat to hide the fact hey were causing the heart disease.
Issues with bile production which can be caused by gut dysbiosis, vaccine injury, farm chemicals found in our food, heavy metals and many other things can lead to gallbladder problems. That can lead to cardiovascular disease.
We need fat to protects us from developing diabetes.
They make starch out to be a villain and claim it leads to obesity and heart disease but that is not true.
They paint sugar as a villain even the sugar in fruits sugar in fruit prevents heart disease.
Vitamins C prevents heart disease but if taken in mega doses it destroys red blood cells and causes cardiovascular disease.
Low cholesterol causes depression, suicidal thoughts and aggressiveness.
Cholesterol is needed to keep the brain healthy.
Inflammation if not addressed can lead to cardiovascular disease. Inflammation is a sign the body is trying to heal and we need to assist it.
There are many things that can cause high C Reactive levels in the blood. This causes inflammation. Tick born illness and many other infections can cause it. Toxins like glyphosate can cause high C Reactive levels and it has been found to be high in much of the food we consume. Also heavy metals and vaccine injury can cause high C Reactive levels. So it is very important to address these things to get our C Reactive levels down.
Flouride found I chorinated water, mouthwash and toothpaste causes hardening of the artieries.
Aluminum which is found in vaccine adjuvants causes hardening of the artieries.
Many things cause oxidative stress, heavy metals, vaccine injury, infection, farm chemicals found in our food especially glyphosate. If we do not address the oxidative stress it can lead to heart disease.
Low cholesterol damages the brain.
Cholesterol dysfunction can lead to autism.
I could literally post hundreds of studies showing vaccines damage the heart.
Our bodies cannot make hormones without cholesterol and those are needed by every part of the body and dramatically effects the brain.
Truth About Statins and cholesterol lowering drugs.
This summarizes the preceding links on the effects of statins our a persons health.
Side effects of Lipitor and other statins.
Now the statin research shows that it causes hypocholesterolemia which means a deficiency in cholesterol. They view that as a good thing but if you look at the proceeding research your will see that has a very bad impact on a persons health.
Statins increase risk of stroke.
Low cholesterol increases risk of stroke.
Statins destroy the brain because they are neurotoxic.
Discontinuing statin use restores memory.
Statins inhibit the very pathway needed to fight infection which causes autoimmunity. Autoimmunity can also lead to cancer.
Statins cause lupus.
Statins can cause hepatitis and kidney damage.
The many ill health effects of statins have been proven but the safety and effectiveness still has not been proven.
Statins have been linked to diabetes.
Statins increase risk of cancer.
Statins damage the lungs.
Statins cause inflammation.
Statins reduce CoQ10 which results in muscle decline and mental decline.
Statins damage the muscles.
This links explains the symptoms of the myopathy.
Statins cause cholesterol escape phenomena and they do not know the consequences.
Statins cause antiphospholipid syndrome which can lead to endothelial damage. Farm chemicals and vaccine injury can also cause it.
Vaccine inujury, mycoplasma infection, heavy metals , and farm chemicals can cause autoimmunity. This can lead to antiphospholipid syndrome which leads to many forms of chronic illness..
If you show sign of antiphopholipid syndrome it is very important to prevent thrombosis.
Statins contribute to heart disease.
Statins cause hardening of the arteries.
A drug that needs mentioned is fluoroquinolones. They damage the whole body especially the heart. The proceeding links will explain POTS. It is when you get dizzy when standing or taking a hot shower. It is life threatening but most cardiologist and doctors brush it off.
Infections can cause heart disease.
Tick born illness can cause heart disease.
Dental infections can cause heart disease.
Mast Cell Activation Syndrome can cause POTS. Vaccine injury , farm chemicals which contaminate our food can cause it. Toxins especially heavy metals can cause it and nutrient deficiencies can cause MCAS,
Farm chemicals especially glyphosate causes heart disease. Glyphosate is found to be in most of our food supply.
Vaccine induced heart disease.
We know oxidative stress causes heart disease.
Sleep deprivation causes heart disease. Statins cause sleep deprivation.
High TMAO levels cause heart disease. This is usually the result of gut dysbiosis caused by antibiotics and other pharmaceuticals, artificial sweeteners can cause it, also farm chemicals especially glyphosate can cause it.
Leaky gut and our gut bacteria effect the health of our whole body. It raises histamines which cause hypertension or carditis.
How Glyphosate effects the gut and health of the body.
Vitamin B12 status can effect our heart. I do not say deficiency because in some they could have high B12 levels but if they have high levels of farm chemicals from eating foods that contain them it will inhibit their bodies ability to convert it to a usable for. Those who are not converting will get headaches when they take B12 and my feel ill. Often times because they know low B12 can cause irregular heart beats they will give IV B12 which can make someone who is not converting very ill.
There are many things that can effect bile acid production. If it is inhibited we can develop diabetes because it can effect the whole body including the heart. It also effects the pancreas and when it is inhibited the pancreas will produce less digestive enzymes which will make our food sit in our digestive tract and ferment. This will make us bloated and will make it feel like we have a heavy weight sitting in our guts. This can cause H Pylori and Candida to go from commensal to pathogenic form. I have posted on how to balance our gut bacteria. It can also cause us to develop either acidosis or alkalosis. If you have candida you will have alkalosis and will experience anxiety and difficulty sleeping. If you have acidosis you will be very drowsy and experience episodes of severe depression. I have posted on all the above mentioned.
Metabolic and autoimmune issues can cause heart diesease.
I have posted on sulfites and sulfation. If we have high sulfite levels or we have sulfation issues it can cause heart disease. Sulfur is very important for regulating many things throughout the body including hormones and blood pressure. Glyphosate, glufosinate and mercury inhibit sulfation.
This can effect BH4 levels. Green Tea raises BH4 levels but must be used in moderation because over use can raise histamine levels.
Proteinuria can be brought on by many things. It can be corrected but could be a sign there are high sulfite levels or sulfation issues. If not addressed it can lead to diabetes, heart disease and even death.
How our lifestyle can effect our heart and our sex life.
Stress cannot be avoided that is why it is necessary to work on learning to handle stress and not let it overwhelm us. It has a very bad impact on on our health especially the cardiovascular system.
This is talking about genetic issues and autoimmune disorders that can cause heart disease. We know many of these negative epigenetic changes are caused by man and can be corrected. Most autoimmunity is induced by man with toxins like glyphosate, heavy metals and vaccines. We must address those to correct the cardiovascular issues.
Trans Fats found in fast food and processed food causes cardiovascular disease.
Discussion of nutrients and their effects on blood pressure and what deficiencies do to the cardiovascular system.
Those with cardiovascular disease have been found to be low in certain nutrients which causes high homocysteine levels.
Issues with Lipocalin 2 can cause heart disease. It modulates iron hemiostasis. Gut dysbiosis, infection, farm chemicals, heavy metals and antibiotics can disrupt Lipocalin 2 function.
Things that may help with heart disease.
Fiber from plantain reduces risk of heart disease.
Cholesfytol reduces heart disease.
Green Tea reduces LDL.
Beta Glucan found in oatmeal reduce oxLDL. It is also found in mushrooms.
Fiber reduces oxLDL.
Reducing oxidative stress reduces hypertension. Cholesterol reduces oxidative stress.
Fasting reduces oxLDL and repairs the heart.
I did a blog post on things that reduce oxLDL.
These are things that help with POTS.
Things that help lower TMAO. Some nutrients do and so do some probiotics.
This is a list of nutrients that help with heart disease and it discussed why they work. It helps to put into perspective some of the causes of heart disease.
The Mediterranean diet reduces heart disease because it reduces oxidative stress and inflammation. They mention curcumin in here. It has amazing healing abilities but chelates iron from the body so it is something that should be used in moderation so a person does not make themselves anemic. It should not be a problem in the U.S. because GMOs and glyphosate cause nutrient deficiencies so they fortify the foods with iron. Because of that many have very high levels of iron which can cause heart disease.
This paper reviewed the research on fats and their effects on the body. Omega 3s help reduce heart disease including myocarditis. But there is times only fats can cause problems. If a person has pyrrole issues which can be a symptom of porphyria they will have problems with fats. It is a very serious health problem that can be corrected with the correct nutrients and lifestyle changes. I have posted in it. There are a number of types of Omega fatty acids. The American diet is high in Omega 6 which has been shown to cause inflammation. Omega 3 Fatty acids should be at a higher level then Omega 6 in the body. Because they are involved in the regulation of many metabolic pathways, consuming too much Omega 6 can cause many health problems. Metabolic syndrome is a cause of diabetes and heart disease.
Histidine helps protect the heart. This may seem confusing but if you read my post on high and low histamines it will explain. Histidine deficiency can cause many negative health effects. Aromatase enzyme are important for it’s proper function. Glyphosate, glufosinate and some foods can inhibit aromatase which can raise ammonia levels in the body resulting in alkalosis. Histidine is important in our response to stress.
Now the bad and it shows the importance of nutrients and homeostasis. A folate deficiency (not folic acid it is toxic) can raise histidine levels which can cause histamine levels to go too high resulting in chronic illness. So the most important thing is to focus on balancing nutrient and histidine levels.
This is a good article explaining histamines in depth.
Heart attack occur more in the winter because of vitamin D deficiency. Guess where Eskimos got their vitamin D. From the animal fat they consumed.
The way we breath can effect our blood pressure. Breathing deeply can lower blood pressure. If we have acidosis we will breath quickly and shallow to reduce CO2 levels which will reduce the acid levels. If we have alkalosis we may breath deeply and very slowly almost to the point were take very few breaths per minute. We must address the issues that are causing the alkalosis or acidosis before breathing will be effective.
The ketogenic diet has been shown to help with oxLDL but I do not believe in staying on one specific diet. The body was made to consume a variety of foods and once homeostasis is achieved I feel it is better to start adding other types of foods to the diet.
Now on the other side of the coin too much potassium can cause problems that is why we should always focus on homeostasis.
Endothelins role in cardiovascular disease and how to decrease them.
Aldosterone though not an herb regulates water and electrolyte balance in the body which can have dramatic effects on our blood pressure and the heart. Sodium Bicarbonate in the mineral water helps with hypertension also.
Black Sativa is a super food. It could be listed in just about any healing remedies from diabetes to mental illness. It also helps with high blood pressure and carditis.
Butyric Acid also known as butyrate is great for healing throughout the body. It is produced by our gut bacteria when we eat fiber, consume milk products and certain carbohydrates. It is needed by the brain and helps fight inflammation and oxidative stress. When deficient in it we can develop leaky gut which can lead to heart disease.
PQQ is another nutrient that has amazing healing properties. It even helps heal neurological damage.
Okra is another plant with amazing healing properties. It is in the mallow family, most plants in the mallow family have amazing health benefits.
Cissus has too many benefits to list.
Peas are ACE inhibitors but you have to make sure they are organic. The farm chemicals on non organic cause heart disease.
Rice bran is an antioxidant and is an ACE inhibitor.
Sunflower seeds reduce the chances of heart disease. You have to make sure they are from a source that is grown in soil that is not contaminated. They are very good at pulling radiation from the soil. If you sprout them they are more nutritious.
Nattokinase thins the blood , it helps with thrombosis by preventing blog clots.
Gingko inhibits bradykinin which contributes to tachycardia. But I have seen a study that showed that renal damage starts to occur if taken for an extended amount of time. It really helped me with my brain fog but I had a strange reaction to it. The first couple of days I got a really bad headache when I took it. But I continued to take it and on about the fourth day I could feel my brain fog starting to lift. I still take it once in a while to help keep the brain fog from coming back but until I am certain of the toxicity I will not take it often. I have only seen one study on the toxicity and there was a lot of data missing leaving me uncertain if it was the gingko that caused the renal damage. Sophora root helps with just about any type of heart disease. It really helped my carditis.
Be pollen is a supper food. It has many proteins that the body can easily use without having to work hard to use. It also has many minerals the body needs. Hence it reduces inflammation which causes arteriosclerosis.
Burdock reduces inflammation and oxidative stress. Diabetes and heart disease can be caused by oxidative stress and inflammation which leads to metabolic disorders. Burdock also helps with metabolic disorders.
Mugwort raises GABA which causes relaxation and is a calcium channel blocker. They claim thujone is toxic but it takes a very high amount to become toxic. They often do things like that , and I believe it is to deter people from healing so they can keep them on the allopathic hamster wheel. Yeah they tell people to take high levels of iron which is toxic and most in the U.S. have been found to have levels of iron that are too high which causes oxidative stress. Mugwort which has the same phytochemicals as wormwood reduces hypertension.
Rooibos is another amazing herb. It reduces inflammation and prevents thrombosis. It also kills many pathogens especially in the lungs. It also improves breathing.
Bacopa helped me a lot it is great for healing the blood vessels and for reducing inflammation and oxidative stress. This also reduces symptoms of carditis.
Berberine reduces inflammation, heals the liver and fights many pathogens. It helps lower blood pressure because of it’s healing properties.
Virgin olive oil has many healing abilities and inhibits our gut bacterias ability to produce TMAO so it reduces blood pressure and risk of heart disease.
Honeyberry a type of honesuckle is great for healing and preventing cardiovascular disease.
This is a type of fleabane. I have looked at the phytochemicals of the various species of fleabane it they are very similar . Most in the fleabane family have the same health benefits which are numerous. They help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
Plant polyphenols reduce cardiovascular disease by preventing thrombosis and preventing blot clotting. They thin the blood.
Soursop prevents thrombosis.
Kudzu has many benefits and has been shown to help reduce blood pressure. When I was very ill it helped me a lot.
Many spices help with heart disease and other chronic illness because they reduce inflammation.
There are many natural sources of ACE inhibitors that usually do not cause the side effects or dangers involved with pharmaceuticals.
Some cheeses will raise histamines but others actually work as ACE inhibitors.
The flavoniods in the white part of citrus fruits helps with cardiovascular disease.
Taxifolin also known as isoquerciten has amazing healing abilities. It is found in milk thistle and has been shown to reduce carditits and high blood pressure.
Galinsoga is another plant with amazing healing abilities throughout the body.
Heat Shock Protein 70 can effect our blood pressure and this discusses how to raise and lower it.
Butchers Broom heals the blood vessels. This one helped me a lot it has many healing properties.
This is a type of Golden Rod. Most of the golden rod has similar photchemicals. They are very high in quercitren so are very good for healing.
Low oxygen levels can be caused by acidosis, infection, oxidative stress , COPD and many other health issues. This causes high blood pressure.
PEA helps fight the common cold and flu because it reduces inflammation so would also help hypertension since inflammation causes hypertension.
Maca root seems to inhibit N-acyletholamine acid which would increase PEA levels.
Oxazolidone inhibits NAAA increasing PEA levels.
Antibiotics derived from penicillin inhibit NAAA unfortunately I am allergic to penicillin.
Metabolic syndrome causes an number of illnesses and hypertension and cardiac disease is a few of them. This is a list of plants and their effects are metabolic syndrome.
Pomegranate has been shown to be an ACE inhibitor. I have found more benefits from eating the seeds then drinking the juice.
Astaxantan helps reduce oxidative stress and inflammation. It is high in krill oil.
Prickly Lettuce also known as Opium Lettuce helps protect the heart but must be used in moderation because it has a chemical in it similar to opium but is not addictive.
Saffron is another one of those herbs that has amazing healing abilities. It helps with carditis and hypertension.
Self heal helps fight viruses, inflammation and oxidative stress. It is an Nrf2 activator so it would help with Nrf2 issues which would help with many forms of chronic illness.
Purslane is a super food, it contains almost all the nutrients needed by the body. It has been found to help with heart disease.
Garlic helps with cardiovascular disease. You have to make sure you do not have high sulfite levels or sulfation issues. If you do it will make you worse.
Wild violet is one of my favorite to eat. It has great anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
Flaxseed has many healing properties because it has Omega 3 in it. It must be crushed because we cannot digest it.
Grape seed extract is another that has many amazing healing abilities and protects the cardiovascular system. The only draw back with grape seed extract is that it is high in resveratrol which give it many healing abilities but resveratrol can activate the hepatitis virus so those with hepatitis my want to avoid it and use other herbs that will prevent inflammation and thrombosis.
There are many plant sources of things that help with cardiovascular disease.
Paeonia root helps prevent thrombosis.
Corn silk is another thing that has many health benefits including preventing heart disease.
Camu Camu has many healing abilities so helps with cardiovascular disease. It raises GABA levels which helps with sleep and relaxation.
Grass fed but is one of the best things for any type of illness.
Lycopene is great for healing one of the best sources of it are cooked tomatoe skins.
Thiamine deficiency can lead to hypertension and chronic illness.
Those who are G6PD deficient or have certain metabolic issues would get ill from the foods that contain thiamine so they may have to supplement thiamine until they have corrected those issues.
Hawthorne leaves and fruit have many health benefits. They help with hypertension and carditis. They have also been found to fight many forms of cancer.
White malberry helps with hypertension.
Nattokinase helps prevent thrombosis. Thrombosis can be a result of infection especially tick born illness and vaccine injury which causes antiphospholipid syndrome. This can result in cardiovascular disease.
This is how nattokinase prevents heart disease.
Rooibos also helps prevent thrombosis.
Arjuna inhibits thrombosis which helps with cardiovascular disease.
There are many other naturals that help inhibit thrombosis.
I have posted on HSP70 it prevents thrombosis without causing excessive bleeding.
Tenascan-C is needed for heart repair. But if it is too high it can cause health problems. Homeostasis should be the goal.
Tenascan-C is high in COPD
High tenascan-c levels increases risk of cancer.
Vitamin B6 deficiency can lead to heart disease.
Flavonolignans help prevent thrombosis.
Ghrelin anti-aging mechanism.
Beta glucan reduces risk of heart disease and has many other beneficial properties.
Reduces blood pressure.
Rooibos protects the heart by reducing oxidative stress and by reducing inflammation. Rooibos is also an ACE inhibitor.
Tenascan-C is needed for heart repair. High Tenascan-C levels can cause heart problems so the goal should be homeostasis.
Tenascan-C is high in COPD
High tenascan-c levels increases risk of cancer.
High fat diet decreases cholesterol.
Cod Liver oil
Omega 3s help.
Fulvic Acid reduces LDL
Astanxathin reduces cholesterol by reducing oxidative stress.
Bacopa reduces inflammation and heals blood vessels.
Grape Seed extract reduces inflammation and blood pressure.
Flavoniods in fruits and vegetables help.
Japanese Honeysuckle helped me. All other honeysuckle is poisonous.
High oxalates increase oxidative stress. N-acetycysteine decreases oxalates thus helping with cholesterol homeostasis.
All these things work because inflammation causes heart disease and they reduce inflammation.
This is not medical advice I am posting this for educational and informational reason.
I am summarizing my notes. I will update them as I go and make spelling corrections late. Just posting them now to give people an idea what to research.
For inflammatory bowel issues and malabsorption issues.
Many with inflammatory bowel have low Catechol-O-Methyltranserase activity. (COMT). Increasing COMT activity must be done with caution if you increase it too much you can swing things too far the other way. Decreased COMPT activity can cause high estrogen levels which effects cholesterol synthesis and can inhibit bile production. If COMT activity is low adrenal hormones will become high and so will more nuero transmitting hormones. Low COMT activity can lead to inflammatory bowel.
SAMe increases COMT activity along with 5-MTHF and folinic acid. Do not take folic acid it will make it worse. Magnesium , lithium and niacin are also needed . Methyl donors are needed for COMT but if a person has sulfation issues they should address it before taking methyl donors.
Those with low COMT need to avoid Quercetin, Rutin, Luteolin, Green Tea, Catechins, Epicatechins, Fisetin, Ferrulic Acid and hydroxytyrosol until they have address the dirty COMT gene. Also L-Dopa compete for COMT so should be avoided.
For a temporary fix reducing tryptophan, phenylalanine, and serotonin reduces high catecholamine levels from low COMT.
These flavonoids can be used by those with COMT down regulation apigenin, genistein, chrysin, myricetin, tangeretin, biacelin, scutellarein and wogonin.
MAO increasing MAO can increase COMT activity. Sirt 1 can activate MAO but is usually high in inflammatory bowel. MAO is not a good route to go because it can cause many other issues.
To address the high adrenal and neurotransmitter levels adaptogenic herbs like eleuthero, ashwanga, passion flower, Lemon balm and valerian will help normalize them.
Increasing progesterone and taking magnesium malate should help also.It will also decrease estrogen levels. Low progesterone can cause problems with sleep causing insomnia or disrupted sleep cycles. It can cause fluid retention and brain fog. It causes estrogen dominance which inhibits T4 from being converted to T3 resulting in low T3 and high T4 levels. Low progesterone can cause night sweats and hot flashes. High adrenaline levels from low COMT activity can cause low progesterone levels.
Cholesterol is needed to produce Progesterone. Stress decreases progesterone. Vitamin C, Magnesium, Zinc, B6, are needed for progesterone. Fiber helps increase it by decreasing bad hormone levels. L-arganine can help increase progesterone.
MTHFR enzyme regulates the methyl cycle issues with it can impair the bodies ability to process folate. It metabolizes folate to 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF). 5-MTHF coverts the ammino acid homocysteine down into methionine and glutathione. Methionine is used to make proteins utilize antioxidants, and assist the liver in processing fats. It also prevents depression and inflammation. Methionine helps convert estradiol into estriol which has weaker estrogen effects. Methionine is farther converted to SAMe which is a methyl donor and reduces inflammation. SAMe supports immune function. SAMe also helps produce certain neurotransmitters such as serotonin, dopamine, and melatonin. SAMe is involved in growth, repair and maintenance of cells.
Methylation has been found to be inhibited in those with inflammatory bowel. Methylation is sometimes referred to as transmethylation. Methylation is when a methyl group is transferred from one compound to another. One example is the recovery of methionine from homocysteine. In order to sustain sufficient reaction rates during metabolic stress this reaction requires B vitamins, B12 and foliate . Mehtyltetrahydrofolate delivers the methyl groups to form the active methyl form of B12. Methycolobalamin is required for themylation of homocysteine.
B12 or folate deficiency causes increased levels of circulating homocysteine. Elevated homocysteine is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome and autism.
Major players in methylation are S-adenosylmethionine (SAMe), and methyltransferase (MT) which include DNA methyltransferase (DNMT), and Protein arginine methyltransferase (PRMT).
Methyltransferases remove methyl group from SAM, thereby converting it to S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine (SAH). This acts as a potent feedback inhibitor of upstream methylation reactions by blocking MT activity. The reactions are reversible.
The ratio of SAM to SAH influences whether SAH is coverted back to SAM or more likely hydrolyzed by S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine hydrolase (SAHase) into andenosine and homocysteine. Blackade of SAHase activity raises intracellular SAH levels and reduces MT activity and indirectly inhibits methylation reactions. Decreased SAHase activity causes raised creatine kinase, SAH, and raised SAM levels. Symptoms are reduced by dietary calorie restriction of methionine and supplementation of creatine and phosphatidylcholine.
Arginine methylation can increase steric hindrance and hydrophobicity but in contrast to phophorylation it does not affect protein charge.
Arginine methylation occurs in histones, trascription factors, cytoskeletal proteins, cytoplasmic signaling proteins and apoptosis proteins.
PRMT substrates are ERA receptor, others are splicing and elongating factors SAP49, UIC, CA150 and FGF-2 and Ewing Sarcoma Oncoprotein.
Problems with the vitamin D receptor can reduce tolerance to methyl donors. Impaired VDR can cause a person to be senstive to methyl donors. SAMe rescues it.
Things that can hinder or block methylation are low electrolytes, and low glutathione. High sulfite levels can cause methyl donor sensitivity. High sulfites can be cause by CBS issues, BH4 causing CBS upregulation or gut dysbiosis. Low superoxide dismutase can also cause methyl donor intolerance or sensitivity. Low methionine can cause methyl donor intolerance. If B12 is not being converted to methylcolobamin it can cause a methyl trap and methyl groups will build up making a person ill.
Homocystein in methylation. In the homocysteine cycle , homocysteine needs to be converted to SAMe and glutathione. SAMe becomes a methyl donor to support healthy methylation and glutathione goes on to act as a powerful antioxidant that slows aging.
Causes of under methylation are leaky gut, nutrient deficiencies especially B12 , low methionine, betaine, choline, and homocysteine levels. The co-factors needed are B12, folate, zinc, B2, B3 and B6.
Mast cell activation syndrome can cause high histamines. Histamines can deplete methyl groups. High basophil levels can cause under methylation. High folate levels can mask B12 deficiency.
Pathways that can lead to undermethylation are CBS, COMT, VDR, MTR, MTRR.
Supporting under methylation SAMe, 5HTP, Evening primrose oil, P5P, inositol, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Zinc, magnesium, Trymethylglycine (TMG) also known as betaine or DMG. Also using methyl forms of vitamins may help. Folate, methionine, glutathione, natural sources of calcium like stinging nettles. Do not take copper, DMAE or choline. Some say not to take manganese but many are deficient now days and I have not seen reliable sources to show it would be bad to take when an under methylator.
Under methylation can cause many health problems. This is a list of symptoms of under methylation. CBS issues need to be addressed before addressing methylation issues or the methyl donors will have no effect.
chronic degenerative diseases
obesity though lean people can be under methylators also.
Obsessive compulsive disorders
Phobias or fears
Low white blood cell count
Extremely large red blood cells
Symptoms of over methylation
headache or migraines
hypokalemia low plasma potassium levels.
Things that support over methylation are B12, folate, niacinamide, DMAE, choline, manganese, zinc, Omega 3s, DHA and EPA. Vitamin C and E. Avoid SAMe, inositol, TMG or DMG.
Oxidative phosphorylation needs restored in inflammatory bowel. OXPHOS is the final step in cellular respiration. Increasing OXPHOS increases glycolysis. The reduced OXPHOS is a result of inhibition of the citric acid cycle. Oxidative stress can also inhibit OXPHOS. Salicylate (aspirin) causes inhibition of OXPHOS. OXPHOS is used by some cancers for growth. Salicylate inhibits the Krebbs cycle and a-ketoglutarate dehydrogenase. This is dependent on ATP and ADP just as the Krebbs cycle is.
Piperine inhibits OXPHOS so should be avoided if you have issues with it or the Krebbs cycle.
OXPHOS provides the ATP used in the brain for most synaptic events including transmitter release.
In cancer that uses the Warburg effect inducing OXPHOS kills the cancer cell but it can feed other types of cancer. Complex 1 inhibitors induce OXPHOS. This causes a back up of ROS in the cells causing cell destruction so this also shows the importance of homeostasis of OXPHOS. So we should work towards restoring what may be inhibiting it for example low NADPH levels or inhibited function of the citric acid cycle or low ATP.
Need to increase Malic Acid, tamarand, apples, pears grapes, black haw and horsetail herb. Malic acid is needed for the Krebbs cycle, reduces pain, improves fibromyalgia, it prevents kidney stones and kidney disease. It also increase the guts production of GABA.
If they cannot tolerate cold this indicates low SIRT3 levels, this will cause problems with the break down of fats, cause low ATP levels, and low glucose levels. SIRT3 increases Acetyl-CoA which fuels the Krebbs cycle. It also stimulates the Krebbs cycle to produce energy by increasing IDH2 activity which which increases conversion of isocitrate to a-ketoglucarate. This is involved in metabolism of hydroxy proline. SIRT3 is involved in ketogenesis. Low SIRT3 will cause inhibited ketogenesis. Those with inflammatory bowel issues are usually low in SIRT3 . SIRT3 increased NADPH which is usually low in inflammatory bowel and malabsorption. Excess SIRT3 will inhibit protein synthesis in the mitochondria and inhibit oxidative phosphorylation. This is one you would have to be careful in manipulating because many with malabsorption have inhibited OXPHOS. Low SIRT3 levels can lead to NAFLD and COPD it increases fibrosis. SIRT3 increases pyruvate dehydrogenase activity which is usually low in malabsorption disorders but high in some cancers. SIRT3 function is PH dependent so if we have acidosis or alkalosis those must be addressed in order for SIRT3 to function properly. Excess SIRT3 will inhibit bone growth. As with anything homeostasis should be the goal.
Things that increase SIRT3 stimulating HSP70 cold will do that. Exercise, nicotinamide riboside, PQQ, Lipoic Acid, Resveratrol, berberine, bitter melon, green tea, chinese skullcap, Leucine, hydrogen peroxide, carnitine, Kaempferol, caffeic acid, chlorogenic acid.
Ketones and a Ketogenic diet inhibit SIRT3.
NPC1 is inhibited in inflammatory bowel. Which is the cholesterol transporter. A deficiency in NPC1 causes an accumulation of cholesterol in lysosomes. This can also cause a deficiency in enzymes needed to break down fats. This is evident by high fat content in stools. Lecithin increases NPC1 but most have issues that need addressed before they can take lecithin. NPC1 deficiency causes lysosomal acid lipase deficiency this causes a disruption in vitamin A homeostasis because the vitamin A receptor becomes inhibited. SP1 transcription factor and adipocyte protein 2 interact to regulate NPC1. A deficiency in either one will decrease NPC1 activity. AP2 is high in hyperglycemia and diabetes. It is also high in obesity. I suspect that may have to do with lectin issues that can be addressed. Also AP2 has been found to be overexpressed in fibrotic types diseases like COPD and NAFLD. AP2 is increased by cAMP protein kinase. Issues with phosphorylation and dephosphorylation effect the function of AP2. AP2 is also high in diabetes and obesity leading me to believe it is an issue involved with lectin sensitivy or insulin. Studies have shown a possible connection with it and insulin resistance. I also suspect there may be issues with the LXR receptors.
ATOX1 and KPNI issues causes high unbound copper levels. ATOX1 is found in cytoplasma. It binds free metals protecting cells from ROS. It also shuttles copper from cytosol to ATPase transporters. This is vital for the subsequent insertion of copper into ceruloplasmin. It is also involved in cell cycle. When it is inhibited lipogenesis becomes inhibited resulting in cell death from increased oxidative stress. Inhibited bile flow causes a decrease in ATOX1. High C-reactive levels which is common in many tick born illnesses and mycoplasma infections cause these enzymes to become inhibited preventing copper from entering ceruloplasma causing high plasma unbound copper levels.
Low Quinone oxidorecutase levels is very common in inflammatory bowel I suspect the opposite is also true in some people. It is also known as NADH dehydrogenase. It acts on NADH and NADPH. It is involved in the first step of the electron transport chain of OXPHOS. NADH is used to create H2 in order to make ATP. NADH is then oxidized resulting in NAD+. AMP is a quinone oxidoreductase inhibitor. Certain sulfur based herbicides also inhibit Quinone oxidoreductase. Low levels of AMP makes you more susceptible to viral infection. So inhibiting AMP is not a good idea but addressing what may be causing high levels of AMP should be the goal. High levels of adenosine induces sleep and as you sleep adenosine deanimase is produced which degrades adenosine this causes us to awaken. Infection causes raised adenosine levels and they believe the body does this so it can heal. Adenosine increases insulin sensitivity. Adenosine makes the blood brain barrier more porous. Low adenosine causes an increase in dopamine and glutamate. So you can see inhibiting AMP could cause some problems. It is best to increase adenosine deanimase. Adenosine deanimase deficiency has been linked to decreased IL-2 which modeulates the immunes system to help it recognize the difference between something foreign and self. Adenosine deanimase defficiency has also been linked to thymus cell death, lung inflammation and defective T cell receptor signaling.
Zinc deficiency can cause a deficiency in Adenosine deanimase. Estrogen also induces adenosine deanimase so high can most likely cause a depletion of adenosine causing the inability to sleep. Insulin Like Growth Factor 1 also increases Adenosine deanimase. Protein, casein in milk products , calcium, blue berries, resveratrol, vitmain C, cinnamon, prolactin, leucin, magnesium, selenium, astragulus, eleuthero, ursolic acid and carnitine increase adenosine deanimase.
Things that inhibit adenosine deanimase are IL-13 which is high in those with allergies. Berberine and curcumine also inhibit adenosine deaminase. Nitric Oxide also inhibits it. So if you have trouble sleeping using these may help.
ACMSD, SIRT1 and AMPK are high in inflammatory bowel and need decreased.
ACMSD is involved in the metabolism of tryptophan into NAD+. ACMSD is part of the Kynurenine pathway. Amino-B-Carboxymuconate-semiadehyde-decarboxylase limits quinolilinic acid formation by competitive production of picolinic acid. A deficiency in ACMSD can lead to depression and even suicidal behavior.
ACMSD is stimulated by iron (Fe2). Toxins and infections can cause oxidative stress which causes the iron in the body to be converted to Fe3 making it unavailable to the body for use. This can cause iron to build up in the body and become toxic. Lactoferrin and curcumin can restore iron homeostasis. Curcumine if taken too long can cause anemia because it chelates iron so should not be used long term. Lipocalin 2 also restores iron homeostasis. Knotgrass stimulates lipocalin 2.
ACMSD is also stimulated by carbondioxide. (CO2+). There are methods of increasing CO2 levels safely like holding ones breath or breathing into a bag. This should be done with caution because CO2 can cause the body to become more acidic.
A diet high in phytic acid can increase phytol in the body. This can activate PPARa which inhibits ACMSD which causes a rise in blood plasma levels of NAD. But it also increases quinolinic acid which can damage the NMDA receptor and other areas of the brain.
SIRT1 activates and silences many genes that promote health and longevity.
SIRT1 used to be called the anti-aging because it slows aging. In some cancers SIRT1 is elevated. If SIRT1 is activated for too long it will cause oxidative stress. So you can see the importance of SIRT1 homeostasis. Now those who have high SIRT1 levels should not worry about what increases it but should focus on decreasing it because just about everything increases SIRT1. Those with high SIRT1 levels tend to be under weight while those with low levels tend to be overweight. SIRT1 increases as NAD+ levels increase because it requires NAD+ to function. SIRT1 removes acetyl groups off proteins. SIRT1 turns inflammatory genes off. SIRT1 turns the genes off for fat storage and synthesis and the genes for managing blood sugar levels. Acetyl groups are added to groups in response to changes made by inflammation and oxidative stress. SIRT1 can reverse Leptin resistance which is common in obesity. SIRT1 can cause you to be sensitive to T3 which can cause high T4 levels and low T3 levels. This can cause a person to be sensitive to cold. SIRT1 can increase estrogen levels by increasing estrogen receptor signaling. SIRT1 and resveratrol makes you more sensitive to vitamin D. SIRT1 inhibits IGF-1 which is used to build muscle and is crucial for healing. But high levels of IGF-1 can promote cancer. SIRT1 inhibits mTOR which is involved in inflammation and aging. SIRT1 protects us from nitric oxide. Nitric oxide stimulates DNA repair via deacetylation of FOXO1. Without SIRT1 NO would cause cells to self destruct. SIRT1 increases adipopectin which stimulates TH17. High adipopectin has been linked to autoimmunity. High TH17 levels causes inflammatory skin diseases such as Lupus. High TH17 levels causes arthritis which is why high adipopectin levels have been linked to arthritis. Adipopectin stimulates weight loss. SIRT1 decreases NRF2 which is the master regulator of the antioxidant system. Acetylation allows NRF2 to bind to DNA better and as mentioned earlier SIRT1 removes acetyl groups which would inhibit NRF2 binding. SIRT1 decreases pancreatic B-Cell proliferation (growth or production) which can lead to diabetes. GLP-1 which is usually low in inflammatory bowel blocks the effects of SIRT1. Low nicotinamide inceases SIRT1 high doses inhibit it. High SIRT1 levels can impair liver repair.
As stated earlier do not worry about the things that increase SIRT1 because they are numerous but worry about the things that disrupt SIRT1 homeostasis like low GLP-1 levels. This is a list of things that increase SIRT1, NAD+, DHA, Cold, Forskolin, adrenaline by increasing cAMP which increases SIRT1, exersize increases SIRT1, Sunlight increases SIRT1, Fructose , olive oil, zinc, green tea, PQQ, curcumin, pterostilbene, cacitrol, lipoic acid, fisetin, berberine, Pau D Arco which contains Beta Lapachone, Gotu Kola, grape seed extract, Salicylic acid, kelp, quercetin, bitter melon, pyruvate, lycopene, and butein all stimualte SIRT1. Other things that increase SIRT1 are hydrogen peroxide usuall formed from toxins in the body or infections, fasting causes high ketone levels which increases SIRT1, Hydrogen sulfide increases SIRT1 which is produced in gut bacteria when we have gut dysbiosis and by the body. Saunas, malic acid, oxaloacetate, apagenin, Lithium, succinic acid, tryptophan, and aspartic acid which are fuels for NAD+. Those things are raised when we have metabolic issues that need addressed.
Things that increase NAD+ also increase SIRT1
Some things that inhibit SIRT1 are PPAR gamma, melatonin, IGF-1, genistein, and an antibiotic trichostatin. PPAR gamma regualates fatty acid metabolism and glucose homeostasis and has been found to be low in those with inflammatory bowel. Low levels of PPAR causes muscle fatigue. Stimulating the retinoic acid receptors increases PPAR, Honokiol found in magnolia stimulates PPAR gamma . High vitamin D levels prevents PPAR from binding to DNA which would inhibit it’s effects. We do not want to increase PPAR gamma to much because it can lead to acne, fluid and sodium retention. AMPK which is usually high in inflammatory bowel inhibits PPAR gamma. Low PPAR gamma levels makes it difficult to gain weight. Those with low PPAR gamma need more carbohydrates. Cold and nitric oxide can increase PPAR gamma.
Insulin-Like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) also known as Somatomedins and sulfation factor. It is involved in the incorporation of sulfur into cartilage for proper cartilage health. IGF-1 has been found to be low in inflammatory bowel and those with high TH17 levels like lupus. IGF-1 increases antioxidants and decreases inflammation. IGF-1 protects us from autoimmunity. IGF-1 improves memory, acts as an antidepressant and reduces anxiety. IFG-1 restores bone density. IGF-1 improves gut health and nutrient absorption. IGF-1 helps maintain electrolyte balance. High levels of IGF-1 causes acne. Excess IGF-1 causes enlargement of internal organs and excessive bone growth. High levels can lead to diabetes, headaches and blurred vision. It can also cause low sex drive and swelling in limbs.
Things that increase IGF-1 are high calorie intake, protein consumption, casein in milk products, vitamin C, blue berries, growth hormone, cortisol, dhea, parathyroid hormone, prolactin, cinnamon, magnesium, eleuthero, ursolic acid, carnitine, dried plums.
Things that reduce IGF-1 are fasting, protein restriction, royal jelly, glucosamine, berberine, luteolin, curcumin, resveratrol, apagenin, lycopene, green tea, boron, inflammation, and histamines.
AMPK- 5, andenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase. It plays a role in cellular glucose homeostasis, it is the bodies energy sensor. It activates glucose and fat uptake oxidation in cells when energy is low. It is stimulates fatty acid oxidation and ketogenisis. It inhibits cholesterol synthesis and lipogenesis and trygliceride synthesis , and inhibits adipocyte lipogenesis and inhibits activation of lipolysis. This results in low cholesterol levels with HDL being lower then LDL. This inhibits the breakdown of food into energy. It also inibits protein synthesis leading to many issues especially pheylketonuria. Lypolysis is how our bodies store energy and when inhibited we will have severe weight loss. This takes place in the CBS pathway. High levels of AMPK is common in inflammatory bowel and malabsorption. AMPK is activated by AMP and inhibited by ATP. Hypoglycemia and hypoxia stimulate AMPK. So if we have low glucose levels AMPK will be high causing the CBS pathway to become upregulated which causes high sulfide levels resulting in many health problems and we will start developing a sensitivity to meat and sulfur containing drugs and foods. AMPK levels are low in those with type 2 diabetes and those who are obese. Upregulation of the CBS pathway also causes high hydrogen sulfide levels which can cause low blood pressure and the production of excess free radicals. It also increases nitrosative stress. Excessive weight gain could indicate low AMPK levels excessive weight loss could indicate high AMPK levels. High AMPK levels can result in a lower body temperature. High AMPK levels inhibit PPAR which I discussed earlier. High AMPK levels can make us more prone to viral infections.
Panex Ginseng , green tea, black tea , snow lotus , salicylate and Curcumine should be avoided by those with upregulated CBS or high AMPK levels because these increase AMPK levels. This may help those with type 2 diabetes or obesity because they would increase fat oxidation. S-adenosyl-L-methionine (SAM) inhibits AMPL decreasing the upregulation of the CBS pathway. Nitrosative stress and oxidative stress activate AMPK. Low AMPK levels can cause glycogen storage disease.
Things that increase AMPK are exercise, fasting or calorie restriction, cold exposure increases AMPK. Resverotrol, quercetin, genistein, berberine, curcumin, anthycyanines found in purple fruits, bitter melon, fish oil, carnitine, astragalus, olive oil, creatine, biacalin found in sculletaria, fleabane and plantain herb, fucoiden all stimulate AMPK.
Things that inhibit AMPK are consumption of proteins especially branch chained proteins, high glucose consumption, saturated fat and insulin. For those who have high levels of AMPK it is important to address the cause because the foods that upregulate it are numerous and we cannot avoid them, also they are needed to remain healthy so avoiding them would only add to the problem and prolong our illness. Glucose consumption and increasing ATP will reduce AMPK.
The Krebbs cycle is needed to produce ATP so issues with the Krebbs cycle need addressed. If COMT is low it will lead to issues with the Krebbs cycle and so can low glucose levels. High hydrogen sulfide levels from gut dysbiosis can cause issues with the Krebbs cycle and the CBS pathway. CoQ10 can increase ATP levels. Medium chain fatty acids can increase ATP levels. Glutathion, Vitamin C and vitamin E indirectly increase ATP levels. Cordyceps mushrooms increase ATP levels. Raising ATP levels also improves cognitive function. Pyruvate, cratine and L-carnitine also increase ATP levels. Ribose helps increase ATP production. The B vitamins are needed for ATP production. Magnesium is also needed for ATP production. Strength training improves the bodies ability to produce ATP. Adrenal fatigue can cause low ATP levels. Adaptogenic herbs help restore normal adrenal levels.
Hypoxia, chemicals especially glyphosate and heavy metals can decrease ATP. Dehydration inhibits ATP production so we must stay hydrated with fluoride free water.
Thiol persulfuration is high causing an increase in H2S which can cause inflammation and low blood pressure. This can be caused by frataxin overexpression. This can result in iron accumulation in the cells and increased oxidative stress. P5P, and ubiquinol help.
If you are deficient in flaxatin iron can build up in the cells reducing excess iron in the body and vitamin C help. Curcumine, and lactoferrin can help by reducing iron levels. Curcumin should be used with causion. Taking it for too long can cause anemia. Lipocalin 2 helps restore iron homeostais. Knotgrass stimulates lipocalin 2. It is needed to generate heme groups so we do not want to inhibit frataxin production. We need to focus on reducing oxidative stress and inflammation. HDAC inhibitors increase frataxin. Iron regulatory protein 1 and 2 regulate flaxatin levels. Increased Irp1 and Irp2 expression increases flaxatin. Hepciden regulates Irp1 and Irp2. During infection and inflammation hepcidin increases inhibiting the ability of iron to be absorbed. This causes hypoferremia a type of anemia. It does this to decrease inflammation and to inhibit the pathogens ability to use iron. A hepcidin deficiency can cause iron overload. Though there are no studies on it, it is clear that hepcidin levels can effect thiol persulfuration. So low hepcidin levels would most likely increase persulfuration and high levels would decrease persulfuration. Low levels of iron increase hepcidin and high levels increase hepcicin. High hepciden levels are linked to inflammatory bowel diseases which leads me to believe there is a link to infection that is being overlooked. High hepcidin levels can lead to atheriosclerosis. High hepcidin levels can cause sleep apnea. Hepcidin is high in psoriasis. Low hepcidin levels can increase iron absorption into the body causing iron toxicity.
Things that decrease hepcidin. Vitamin D , STAT3 inhibitors, salicytic acid, Reducing IL-6, alcohol, smoking, testosterone and estrogen.
So if we need to increase heocidin increasing STAT3, IL-6 and other things that cause inflammation should increase hepcidin.
increasing intrinsic factor to improves nutrient absorption especially B12. Gentian root increases intinsic factor. A sign if malabsorption is swelling of the tongue. It is one of the first nutrients to become deficient in malabsorption. Avoid acid blocking drugs. Stomach acid is needed to absorb B12. Increasing stomach acid helps to absorb B12. Apple cider and bitter herbs help increase intrinsic factor. Thyme increases stomach acid. Dandelion and sea salt also promote stomach acid production.
Damage to the gut which is common now because of the BT Toxin and glyphosate in our food causes a loss in intrinci factor production because the pareital cells that generate intrisic factor becomes damaged. Once B12 levels drop it can start a cycle that is hard to break. Sublingual B12 can help , putting it under the tongue can help the body to absorb it. In some the nutrient deficiencies caused may cause issues with converting B12, P5P may be needed also to help with the conversion of B12 to a form the body can use. The B12 deficiency causes inflammation in the gut which farther inhibits nutrient absorption.
We must work on protecting and restoring the mucous membrane for parietal cells to regenerate. Bismuth can help protect the gut permitting it to repair.
Histamine, acetylcholine and gastrin regulate intrinsic factor production. Many are deficient in choline which would inhibit the production of intrinsic factor. Also H2 inhibitors will inhibit histamines which will inhibit production of intrinsic factor.
BHMT (Betaine homocysteine S-methyltransferase is usually low in those with inflammatory bowel but if they have PEMT issues it can cause problems. Betaine taken with pepsin help break down food better and increase gastric acid which should reduce GERD caused by inhibited bile. Hypothyroidism, high estrogen levels, low COMT disrupts hormone levels which can cause low stomach acid levels. Betaine is also know as trymethylglycine or TMG. Betaine increase BHMT levels. Betaine also increases methionine. Vitamin B6 , magnesium and zinc deficiencies can cause low stomach acid levels. Also if you are low in choline needed for neurotransmitters it could slow stomach acid production down. to increase BHMT lysine, choline, creatine, ursodeoxycholic acid, thiamine, mirocholic acid, methylfolate, and methionine are needed. The supplement trymethylglycine also known as TMG is betaine that was extracted from plant sources. Pineapple , beets and golden rod are high in betaine. Betaine, along with glutathione. TMG lowers the burden on the CBS pathway and also helps reduce ammonia levels. It helps the body to recycle phenylalanine preventing it from being converted to ammonia.
PCYT2 inhibition causes weight gain and overexpression can cause weight loss. Low PCYT2 Expression can cause diabetes type 2 and obesity. Phosphate Cytidylyltransferase 2 deficiency causes increased lipid absorption. PCYT2 is found to be common in polycystic fibrosis. PCYT2 deficiency causes a rise in PUFA which causes inflammation. PCYT2 is inhibited by Liver X Receptor activation, vitamin D3 activates the LXR. Oxeysterols also inhibit PCYT2. Oxysterols are cholesterol derivatives.
Leptin causes problems in inflammatory bowel and improving leptin sensitivity is important. Being sensitive to leptins can cause weight loss. Leptin resistance is different it causes obesity. It is important to decrease leptins until the issue is resolved. When you eat leptin it signals that you are full, it lets the brain know to stop eating. High leptin levels will cause the brains letpin receptor to become desensitized to leptin. Processed sugar can desensitize the leptin receptors. When that happens we will keep binge eating. High testosterone and high estrogen levels can cause leptin resistance. High insulin levels can cause leptin resistance. Leptin resistance can cause carbohydrate cravings. Leptin resistance can cause high C-reactive proteins in the body. That causes inflammation and can cause high unbound copper levels in the blood.
High leptin levels can cause osteoperosis and joint damage. Leptin increase metalloproteinase enzymes which cause cell death of the chondrocytes the cells that produce cartilage. High Leptin levels can cause autoimmunity. Leptin resistance also causes elevated free fatty acids.
When functioning properly as we eat and fat levels rise leptin goes up signaling that we have enough calories. When fat levels drop leptin levels go down signaling we need calories. When a person becomes leptin resistant they will feel sluggish because the body tells them to rest to preserve calories because the brain thinks they are starving. Losing weight causes a drop in leptin which will increase hunger. Inflammation, infection, high free fatty acid levels and high leptin levels can cause leptin resistance. This can lead to type 2 diabetes, hypertension, atherosclerosis and insulin resistance. Low melatonin levels can cause this. Studies have shown those who have leptin resistance improve when they get more sunlight. Being deficient in certain gut bacteria can also cause leptin resistance. The gut bacteria that keep us from developing leaky gut and the ones that produce short chain fatty acids prevent leptin resistance. Also health conditions like acidosis and alkalosis can cause changes in FFA levels. Acidosis can reduce FFA levels in the blood. Alkalosis can increase FFA levels. Those with acidosis should not drink alcohol because it increase acidosis. Alcohol consumption causes an increase in acetate which causes the PH of the blood to become more acidic over consumption can cause lacticacidosis.
Things that help with leptin resistance are avoiding processed foods, avoiding consumption of processed sugars including fructose and even processed honey can contribute to it. High T4 levels can cause leptin resistance which could indicate COMT deficiency and high estrogen levels. Honey that is raw does not seem to have these effects. Increasing protein consumption improves leptin sensitivity.
Leptin sensitivity is different, it is caused by leaky gut and causes fatigue, mental illness, skin rashes, allergies, nausea, muscle weakness, numbness and you become more prone to illness. You will also develop gas, bloating, headache, indigestion , diarrhea/constipation and may develop autoimmune or generative disease. Lectins should not be mistaken for Leptin which is different.
This will make you sensitive to nuts, grains, eggs, milk products, legumes, seeds, potatoes, melons, squash and other high lectin foods. Those with lectin sensitivity will usually be underweight but not always. High ketone levels can cause leptin resistance.
Herbs that reduce inflammation and also Omega 3s which help reduce inflammation increases leptin sensitivity. Correcting things that can cause disrupted sleep patterns increases leptin sensitivity. Also addressing infections will improve leptin sensitivity.
Leptin is produced in fats cells in the body. When a person loses weight the fat cells release leptin which makes the body think it is starving. High leptin levels makes us more sensitive to pain. It can also makes us more susceptible to allergies. High leptin levels can cause inflammation.
Phospholipase A needs reduced it is high in inflammatory disease especially inflammatory bowel. High Phospholipase can be caused by infection, toxins like mercury and fluorquinolone injury. Farm chemicals found in our food especially glyphosate can also cause high PLA levels. This leads to leaky gut, gut inflammation, it can eventually lead to many metabolic issues, it can cause arthritis, heart disease, it can damage the liver and pancrease. It can also damage cells and cause cell death.
Those with high PLA levels should avoid Omega 6 fatty acid. PLA increases the fatty acids in the body that causes inflammation and it also increases inflammatory cytokines. It can also increase substance P levels which increase inflammation. It also causes lipids to be oxidized which can prevent the body from being able to properly use fats which are very important for our health. Our brains need fat so it can lead to mental illness. It also causes oxLDL levels to become high.

Increasing D-bifunctional protein prevents muscle weakness, seizures, fatty acid accumulation, decreases palmitoyl CoA oxidase, peroxisome thiolase and branch chain acyl-CoA.
Increased phytanic acid oxidase prevents fatty accumulation in the liver. Excess branced chain fatty acids inhibit phytanic acid and cause it to accumulate in the liver which leads to hyperkerotosis. Increasing urea can help with this. This can also lead to adrenoleukodystrophy which causes the enzymes for fatty acid to not to function properly causing very long chain fatty acid build up. This is caused by ABCD1 issues and can result in cerotic build up.
Lorenzo’s oil can correct this conditon. It is 4 parts glyceral trioleate and 1 part glycerol. These are forms of oleic and euric acid made from olive oil and oil from olive seed. If not corrected ti can lead to the accumulation of VLCFA which causes A-Methylacyl-CoA Racemase deficiency. This can cause an accumulation of bile acids. Reducing phytanic and pristanis helps.

Increasign Lipoxin A4 decreases inflammation
Increase NADK to improve NAD binding and improve phosphorylation. Magnesium, zinc and CO2 are required.
Reduce PKC to reduce inflammation and gene overexpression.
NADPH oxidase over activation depletes NADPH. Inhibiting it can raise NADPH levels. Tripterygium wolfordii and magnolia inhibit NADPH oxidase. Nitric Oxide also inhibits NADPH oxidase. Gingko biloba inhibits NADPH oxidase but there are studies showing using it for three months or more may damage the liver.
Iron overload decreases NADPH. Lactoferrin, curcumin, and lipocalin 2 help restore iron homeostasis. Taking curcumin for to long can make you anemic because it chelates iron .
Reducing hemolysin prevents thrombosis and fibrosis and reduces H2S. When H2S levels are high it can lead to inflammation and low blood pressure.
Gut bacterias effects on inflammatory bowel.
Those who have inflammatory bowel are defecient in Short chain fatty acids. Akkerinmania municiphila, roseburia intestinalis hominis, inulinivorans faecis ceciola regulates metabolism, produce butyrate and SCFA. They also help restore our beneficial gut bacteria.

NAC and threonine can help.
Allicin reduces acetic acid producing bacteria.
Pantothenic acid cannot function if biotin is low.
If Lipoate is deficient the antioxidant system cannot function.
Biotin requires butyrate and acetate to be absorbed. Low biotin levels causes high B12 levels because your body will be unable to convert it. Brewers yeast and eggs are high in biotin.
Hydroxylase syntase deficiency cause a loss in the ability to metabolize proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. It is dependent on biotin.
When you have inflammatory bowel you have to take nutrients in this order. First biotin, adenosylcobalamin then choline. Then sunflower seeds, mushrooms, small amounts of whole grains, bioavailable forms of B vitamins, and methyl groups.
N-methyl transferase needs increased in those with inflammatory bowel.
N-methylglycine needs increased to prevent psychosis and depression.
Increasing Alkaline Phosphatase increases the guts good bacteria. Cissus Quadrangularis increases it and so does curcumin, cod liver oil, zinc also increase ALP.

To repair cells fructooligosaccarides and glycerophopholipids are needed. Also fructans, pectin, Beta glucans and resistant starches are needed. Many of these can be found in raw milk, clostridium, and whey protein, along with mushrooms and seaweed.
SHBG-sex hormone binding globulin is a protein when found in high levels will cause obesity , type 2 diabetes. Low levels cause hyperthyroidism and autoimmunity. To much SHBG binds up testosterone. SHBG is the master regulator of testosterone and estrogen. High SHBG levels raises estrogen. Low levels will cause hardening of the arteries and inflammation. Low LDL levels and high tryglicerides. High insulin and high prolaction levels. Can raise estrogen and thyroid hormones. High estrogen and high Thyroid hormones increase SHBG.
ABCB4 if inhibited will inhibit bile. ABC proteins transport molecules across membranes. Phosphatidylcholine is it’s substrate. T3 activates ABCB4,
Cyp7a1 inhibition will inhibit key liver bile enzmes. LXR activators increase Cyp7a1. Taurine enhances Cyp7a1 activity.
IBAT inhibition helps with inflammatory bowel. It improves cholestatic pruritus, helps with biliary cholangitis. It also increases ursodeoxycholic acid which increases bile production.
Increased FGF19 increased bile.
Most with inflammatory bowel have a pyruvate carboxylase deficiency. To increase it phosphatydil choline, biotin, chloroacetic acid which is found in asparagus, red algae and seaweed are needed. Also medium chain fatty acids are needed. Thiamine, phosphate, and magnesium are needed. Read apples and cheese also increase it. Triheptanoin also known as C7 will increase it. This helps restore the citric acid cycle function.
Most with inflammatory bowel have disregulated insulin and glucose levels. Bitter melon taken with sinocrassula indica restore insulin levels and glucose homeostasis.
To break down carbohydrates amylase, brush border enzymes, lactase, maltase, isomaltase, and sucrose activity are required.
SGLT1 deficiency with inhibit glucose absorption causing low glucose levels. This can lead to high ketone levels.
Need to correct issues causing SCFA deficiency and need to reduce branch chain amino acids in obesity but increase them in those who are under weight.
It is very important to reduce estrogen because it increases biounavailable copper. Low oxidizers also have high biounavailable copper. Low oxidizers are usually too alkaline.
Things that help with adrenal fatigue caused by high biounavailable copper is meditation, reduce stress, reduce fear, molybdenum, manganese, selenium, B Vitamins, Vitamin C and vitamin E.
Gut dysbiosis and candida can cause high acetaldehde levels. This can cause you to become intoxicated.
Nad-linked aldehyde removes excess acetaldehyde. ALDH2 gene regulates ALDH.
Other enzymes that remove excess acetaldehyde are adehyde oxidase, xanthine oxidase, glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase oxidises acetaldhyde. Those who have high acetaldehyde should not use Kudzu it raises acetaldehyde levels. Vitamin B1 is also needed to reduce acetaldehyde. Xylitol inhibits bacteria production of acetaldehyde.
Things that can inhibit enzymes that break down acetaldehyde are biogenic amines, noneal, dopamine, noradrenaline, serotonin, and long chain lipid aldehydes.
This is not medical advice I am posting this for educational and informational purposes.
Flaccid myelitits is vaccine injury and should be reported there is a time limit. Vaccine injury of this type takes time to manifest and will start out as allergies or food intolerance. Most medical professionals have no training with vaccines so do not recognize vaccine injury. When it does occur most go to the emergency room and they do not look at a patients vaccine history so they will not make the connection.
It has been a recognized vaccine injury that is awarded in vaccine court.
There are many documented cases of it.
Some vaccine inserts even state flaccid paralysis as a side effect.
There is a lot of corruption at the CDC and they contribute to hiding the truth about vaccinations. You have to take it on yourself to be aware of the harm they do.
The CDC admitted that vaccines were spreading polio and making it more virulent. Their response was lets declare victory and move on.
Vaccinations are harming more then they are helping.
Polio vaccine is causing it to become more virulent.
Polio used to be rare until they introduced vaccines for it.
Vaccinations destroy the immune system making a person more prone to infection so those vaccinated no longer have a resistance against the entorviruses. It is why those who are vaccinated are frequently catching a variety of illnesses.
This is why paralytic diseases have increased in children.
Vaccines are often suspended because they have frequently been found to be contaminated with a dangerous infectious agent. Not only are they contaminated with things like deadly infectious agents they have been found to be contaminated with extremely toxic substances. So the toxins would weaken the body and make it more prone to infection. Some ingredients used in vaccines like mercury and aluminum they falsely claim are no longer used are still on the ingredients list of many vaccines indicating they do still use them. The poor infants who are being injected by these things don’t stand a chance. They will be making frequent doctors visits because they will be plague by a variety of illnesses. There are so many types of mycoplasma and there are no test for many of them so they have no real way to test vaccines for mycoplasma contaminations but studies have shown 65% to 80% of vaccines are contaminated.
Sometimes when they are ask to recall a vaccine because of contaminants they refuse to. This is why new studies are showing vaccines do more harm then good.
Vaccinations have even been contaminated with viral agents known to cause cancer.
Now imagine vaccines are contaminated with pathogens and now add to the fact they are known to activate dormant pathogens.
Vaccinations reactivate dormant infections.
So we need to ask ourselves what is really causing people to become susceptible to paralysis? Why did this rarely occur but there are actually epidemics of it occurring now.
Certain infections like Lyme disease can also cause it but the test has a failure rate of up to 80% so if a person has Lyme their chances of getting properly diagnosed is very slim.
I did a blog post on identifying vaccine injury.
Many drugs can also cause flaccid myelitis especially fluoroquinolones.
I have read the research on this and it has been shown to work 10 times better then DEET. When I spray it on no insects bother me. With biting insects carrying so many diseases and the CDC corruption causing Lyme to become epidemic it is a good idea to prevent illness by doing your best to avoid getting bit by any insects.
Make tea with catnip. About a table spoon per cup of water and a pinch of rose mary and cloves . To extent the amount of time it is effective add vanilla.
To make it for plants in the garden which I have used it for that also and it is very effective. Do the above mentioned things and then add the things below.
Smash a few cloves of garlic per gallon of water. Add a pinch of clove per cup of water. It doubles the time it is affective. Add ceyanne pepper. If you use the spray on your person you may want to leave the cayenne pepper out. If you have mold problems I found chelated copper works great. About 1 cap per 2 gallons of water worked great. Works great on people or in the garden. Mugwort also helps prevent mold on plants so you could add some tea made from mugwort to it.
David Anderson ran this thread in our Facebook group “Synergistic Illness”. I found it interesting and very informative so I am sharing the links.
We have all seen mouth breathers. When I have seen them I always knew right off the bat they had health problems but there are consequences for breathing through your mouth. This link speaks about the theories surrounding mouth breathing.
How it effects our health.
It can effect your mouth and teeth.
Nutrition and mouth breathing.
This can effect you mentally.

Some other causes of mouth breathing.
This is not medical advice, I am posting this for educational and informational purposes.
The pineal gland is involved with many functions in the body including reproduction.
Problems with the pineal gland can impair our sleep, effect our cognitive abilities, our reaction time, it can effect our judgment and perception of reality. This is why it is very important to detoxify the pineal gland. Problems with the pineal gland can eve effect our hormones.
Vitamin A is important for the function of the pineal gland.
Sunlight stimulates the pineal gland.
Lithium can negatively impact the pineal gland.

DMT a hallucinogen has been shown to protect the brain and pineal gland,. It prevents the degradation of MAO.
This is not medical advice I am posting this for educational and informational purposes.
They blame genetics for obesity. Many things caused by modern medicine and toxins they blame on genetics. Also it is our life styles and eating habits that we inherit from our families that influence our health. If you read some of my post you would see that most things are not genetic as they falsely claim.
They constantly blame genetics but if you do your research you would see that our gut microbiome modulate our genes and if you are lacking a certain microbiota the genes it modulates will be effected. I have posted on it is not your genes but it is your gut and gut microbiome. A change in our microbiome from farm chemicals in our food, BT Toxins from GMOs, antibiotics and other pharmaceuticals and heavy metals can change our gut bacteria. This can result in obesity.
To prevent children having a life full of illness it is important to make sure they develop a balanced gut microbiome while young.
Our environment effects our jeans. Also a childs health is determined by the bacteria they get will still and infant.
We need to ask ourselves why has obesity , chronic illness and heart disease increased so dramatically? If modern medicine, TV and the government is right then our health should be improving not declining. Studies have shown that we eat far less fat and cholesterol in the U.S. then we did in the past and we eat more fruits and vegetables. So why are these conditions increasing?
Increasing Leptin sensitivity can reduce body weight.
Increasing insulin sensitivity will help with leptin levels.
Ghrelin can also effect our weight and those who are obese seem to have lower levels of ghrelin but are more sensitive to it. They believe this is because many obese people have been shown to have high cortisol levels. This makes us more sensitive to ghrelin. Rooibos, suma and maca are adaptogenic herbs. Ghrelin, insulin and leptin communicate with each other so issues with those will effect our ghrelin levels.
Things that effect ghrelin.
Ghrelin regulates our glucose levels in the body and many other things.
Often times weight loss can cause a rise in appetite because of the raised Leptin levels. Once leptin levels come down this resolves itself.
Also what contributes to obesity is the low nutrient food and they manipulate advertising to influence what we eat.
Inflammation and high histamines can cause issues with our cannabinoid receptors and this can lead to diabetes and obesity.
How stress impacts the body and contributes to obesity.
Diet effects gut bacteria and can cause obesity and diabetes. Food additives are one of the biggest culprits contributing to obesity.
Information about gut microbiome and what they do.
Microbiota that cause weight loss and weight gain.
How to boost the good gut bacteria.
Our gut bacteria determines our body type. Remember our gut bacteria modulate our genes and will determine if we are thin or obese based on what the composition of our microbiome is.
Vaccines and antibiotics contribute to obesity. Just like anything else obesity is actually an illness. Most who are obese are not obese because they are lazy. I know many obese people who were very hard workers.
So we have established obesity can be an autoimmune disorder but it can also be a metablolic disorder.
Our diet can contribute to this.
Antibiotics can cause many health problems including obesity and diabetes.
Our gut bacteria modulate our metabolism.
The sad part is the drugs to counter act the health effects of the first drug causes even more severe health problems.
Good carbs and bad carbs. Many avoid carbs but our gut bacteria need them to keep us healthy.
Camu Camu can help with that though. Camu Camu helps reduce stress and inflammation.
Rose hips helps with obesity.
Eating GMOs causes weight gain by changing our gut bacteria and our metabolism.
GMOs, farm chemicals and drugs can effect bile flow which can lead to obesity.
All the above mentioned kill our butyrate producing bacteria which keep us from gaining weight.
Most allergies are caused by farm chemicals in our foods, processed foods, BT Toxin in GMOs cause the body to react the same would your body would if it had food poisoning. This can lead to allergies. Antibiotics kill our good gut bacteria which can lead to allergies. This can result in obesity.
Exposure to heavy metals can lead to obesity by causing inflammation and metabolic issues.
Stress, chemicals especially chemicals like glyphosate and glufosinate found in our food can raise zonulin levels. Many medications can raise zonulin levels setting things into motion that can lead to many health problems and obesity.
Lipocalin and obesity.
Lipocalin oxidizes fat causing weight loss.
Our gut bacteria need iron tho thrive but the iron they fortify food with is the wrong type. Iron found in curly dock and burdock root will supply you with iron without causing toxicity unless you have certain liver diseases. If you have iron toxicity lactoferrin will restore iron homeostasis. Curcumine will reduce iron levels in the blood also but do not take it too long or you can become anemic.
Luteolin helps with obesity.
Good vagus nerve health protects from obesity.
Many of the food manufacturers know processed sugar , processed fructose is even worse and causes inflammation which leads to obesity but they blame the people and hide the fact they new that it has ill effects on our health. I have not included the research in this blog post but processed honey acts pretty much like processed sugar but raw honey does not. Sugars in fruits help fight illness and have health benefits showing that we need the cofactors along with the sugars.
I have posted on oxidative stress. It can lead to many health problems including obesity.
Resveratrol found in grape seed extract helps reduce inflammation which is a cause of obesity.

Even gut bacteria can positively impact our health.
A list of diet advice by Dr Axe.
Diet effects our health by changing our gut bacteria.
Smoking can cause weight gain.
Sulfur is needed by almost every cell in the body. A deficiency or issue with sulfation can cause obesity. I have posted on sulfation.
BH4 is involved in energy metabolism. It is effected by high sulfite levels, inflammation , oxidative stress and nutrient deficiencies. This can lead to obesity. A person with BH4 or CBS issues will be sensitive to sulfur containing foods and drugs.
Toxins found in our food can cause issues with G6PD especially glyphosate and glufonisate which can lead to obesity.
Houttyynia can help with obesity.
Dandelion helps with diabetes.
The flavonoids found in the white part of citrus fruit helps with obesity.
Part of the problem is we do not get enough saturated fat now days.
Beta Glucan found in oats, barley and mushrooms help with obesity.
We know inflammation can cause diabetes. Endothelins can cause inflammation.
There are many herbals that will reduce obesity by reducing the things that cause obesity like inflammation, histamines and autoimmune issues or addressing the nutrient deficiencies that can lead to those things.
Nrf2 activators help with diabetes.
Lactoferrin helps with obesity by reducing the gut bacteria that cause obesity.
Spirulina helps with obesity but is high in sulfur for those dealing with sulfur issue they may not be able to use this one.
Many spices have healing properties.
Amyloid which can be cause by toxins, oxidative stress or inflammation has been linked to both.
Aluminum found in vaccines and many products like under arm deoderant has been linked to alzheimer’s and chronic illness.
Mercury still used in some vaccines and found in dental fillings can cause both.
Glyphosate and other farm chemicals found in high levels in our food has been linked to alzheimer’s and chronic illness.
Inflammation has been linked to chronic illness and alzheimer’s
Oxidative stress has been linked to alzheimer’s and chronic illness.
Tick born illness which we know causes chronic illness has been linked to Alzheimer’s along with other infections.
So imagine the synergistic effects of all these things.
Causes of breast cyst.
Infection can cause breast cyst. Many with tick born illness experience this. Even many toxins can cause breast cyst.
When we have underlying health issues fibrosis can develop. This is a symptom of a health issue that needs addressed. Excess oxidative stress, metabolic issues and nutrient deficiencies can cause fibrosis among many other things.
Aluminum found in vaccines and products used on the body can cause cyst.
Clothes that fit too tight.
Farm chemicals especially glyphosate which has been found to be in most of our food supple can cause breast cyst and even cancer.
Breast Cyst from an underlying cause.
Excess oxidative stress from a toxin or illness which can lead to cancer.
BPAs and other xenoestrogens we can come in contact with can cause breast cyst.
Many get asthma because of medications changing our gut microbiome, toxins like glyphosate in our foods disrupting out gut microbiome. One the the biggest causes is vaccine injury. We have been taught that many things that keep us healthy are a bad pathogen. When we have all the nutrients we need the supposed pathogens actually help maintain our health. I could not cover anything or this answer would get too long but studies have found receiving immunization naturally protects us from allergies and autoimmunity and receiving it through vaccinations makes us more prone to allergies and autoimmunity. Add all the toxins in our environment and we are asking for trouble.
For example H Pylori reduced our risk of getting asthma.
Some infection protects us from cancer. Vaccinations have been shown to cause cancer.
Getting chicken pox as a child has been shown to protect from allergies while vaccinations increase the risk for allergies which can lead to asthma.
Vaccinations increase the risk of asthma and allergies.
Aluminum is toxic to the brain and body. It can cause asthma and is found in many vaccines.
Vaccinations are also why autoimmune diseases have risen. Vaccine injury is subtle at first and progresses over the years so most do not realize they have been vaccine injured and by the time they have it is too late to be compensated.
Because vaccines cause more harm then good many health professionals are speaking out.
Whether a mother took antibiotics while pregnant or if the baby was born naturaly or through C section can influence their susceptibility of developing asthma.
Even over the counter medication increase the risk of asthma. Tylenol has been known to cause liver damage and increase the risk for asthma.
The CDC has failed at controlling the Lyme epidemic and it makes a person more prone to lung disease. Seems this is a common theme for them and it takes an outside body to figure things out. I honestly do not know what purpose they serve. Usually they are busy covering their mistakes up with someone else figures out how to fix it.
Our gut microbiome protect us from illness. Many toxins in our food disrupt out gut microbiome.
Breast fed babies have a more diverse gut microbiome which protects them. Many children are formula fed.
Because antibiotics disrupt our gut bacteria the younger a child is when they receive antibiotics the more prone they are to getting asthma.
Most know about GMOs and glyphosate and how they contribute to inflammatory bowel disease. This can lead to many illnesses including asthma.
Many have reactions to GMOs while just handling them imagine what they are doing to the body.
Glyphosate causes a list of illnesses that is to long to include here but it has been linked to asthma. Glyphosate has been found to be in most of our food supply.
Our gut bacteria even influence our brains.
Studies have shown that those with low cholesterol live shorter lives and it has a negative impact on their health. Many do not get enough cholesterol.
GMOs have been found to contain less nutrients, also glyphosate has been found to be a chelator of minerals and is used on most of the crops grown for our food. Now add this to nutrient depletion from over farming. Nutrient deficiencies contribute to asthma.
This is not medical advice I am posting this for educational and informational purposes.
Many are deficient in choline , it has a dramatic impact on our health. A deficiency effects everything from digestion to our brain.
Signs of choline deficiencies and sources. Once you read this you will see how choline and betaine deficiency can effect every part of the body even the citric acid cycle.
When we lose our butyrate producing bacteria it can cause glycogen storage issues. This can effect our ATP levels. We know we can experience dysfunction with choline if ATP levels get low.
Choline helps with insulin resistance.
Choline serves so many functions a deficiency in choline has a dramatic whole body especially the liver and the brain.
A deficiency in choline also causes high hydrogen peroxide levels. Also oxidative stress can deplete choline.
The body raises creatine levels to try and protect itself during choline deficiencies.
Bile is important for the digestion of food and nutrient absorption. Choline is needed to produce bile. Our body uses bile to remove many toxins.
Choline is important for lipid metabolism,the production of VLDL and mitochondrial function.
Choline is involved in homocystiene metabolism and issues with methyl-groups can cause homocystenuria.
Bradykinin causes a rise in acetylcholine receptor which is a sign of inflammation.
Transmethylation inhibition raises homocysteine levels and leads to brain damage from inhibiting the bodies ability to metablolize choline. Farm chemicals can inhibit transmethylation especially glyphosate and glufosinate. This can also effect sulfation and the CBS pathways.
When this happens bioavialable forms of vitamins will help return things to normal levels.
It is important to get the supporting nutrients to properly metabolize and use choline.
Choline metabolism is just as important as magnesium for our health.
The vagus nerve effects PEMT expression.
TMAO has been linked to heart disease and is produced mostly by our gut microbiome. It also effects the availability of choline.
DMB found in balsamic vinegar and Wine inhibit TMAO production in our gut microbiome.
Excessive meat consumption leads to high bacteroides levels. This causes IBD and can lead to cardiovascular disease.
This can also lead to impaired renal function.
This can lead to fatty liver disease.
Food sources that raise TMAO.
TMAO levels can be reduced with a combination of B vitamins and vitamin D.
Methyl-group metablolism issues and methy-group donor deficiencies can effect DNA methylation, and gene expression. Remember Choline is a methyl donor and needs the other methyl donors.
Estrogen regulates PEMT expression aberrant estrogen levels can cause liver dysfunction in a situation like this. There are many toxins that can cause this and even vaccine injury can cause this to happen.
Inflammation, oxidative stress, metabolic issues can cause phospholipase A activity which can cause problems with the gall bladder.
Aluminum negatively impacts the effects of choline on the brain.
Folic Acid which is man made has been shown to be linked to cancer, mental illness and even metabolic issues. Folate is natural , but they fortify much of our food with folic acid which is man made. Folic Acid should be avoided it can cause psuedo MTHFR issues.
Japanese Honeysuckle protects from fatty liver.
Reduce Basal Ganglia function has been found to be common in those with chronic fatigue syndrome. This can be caused by inflammation, stress, toxins, and autoimmune issues. It is not mentioned in the first study but this is a result of a change in choline levels in the brain. Choline levels become elevated in the brain. This is why it is important to reduce inflammation , learn to deal with stress better and to treat infection. Farm chemicals found in high amounts in our food can also cause this and when possible try to eat organic. Glufosinate a chemical with very similar properties as glyphosate has many of the same ill health effects. Heavy metals can also cause this to happen which are often times found in vaccines.
All the above mentioned things can effect BCHE and ACHE levels which are known to be high in multiple sclerosis. Farm chemicals have been shown to reduce BCHE which is important for ACHE homeostasis. High BCHE levels can cause myocardial infarction. BCHE levels is found to be high in obestiy, uremia, hyperthyroidism, and hypertension. Those are all inflammatory dieses. BCHE is elevated during inflammation. This shows the importance of addressing things that cause inflammation.
BCHE levels is low in liver disease and cancer. Low BCHE levels are a sign of malnutrition. Low BCHE levels can cause higher ACHE levels. High ACHE levels can cause mental illness.
BCHE levels decline in malnutrition.
Ghrelin is involved in glucose and insulin homeostasis. BCHE regulates Ghrelin levels I have posted on Ghrelin and it’s involvement in glucose and insulin homeostasis. BCHE reduces Ghrelin.
Information how various things effect ACHE and BCHE.
Autoimmunity can effect choline status and lead to chronic illness. I have posted about autoimmunity and how to correct it. Myasthemia Gravis is caused by autoantibodies detroying, altering or inhibiting the acetylcholine receptors. Most of the things I have mentioned in my post on autoimmunity that can cause these issues.
Choline is important in the production of VLDL which has been found to be low in those with inflammatory bowel disorders. Inflammation and autoimmune issues can cause low VLDL levels.
This is why phosphatidylcholine (Lecithin). Helps with inflammatory bowel disorders. Most of my friends said that sun flower seed oil is the most effective.
Antiphospholipid syndrome which leads to excessive blood clotting can is tied to choline metabolism.
Metabolic issues can effect choline status which can lead to POTS.
Activation of a7 nicotinic acetycholine receptors in the presence of choline helps with Alzheimers and mental illness by enhancing glutamate release.
Our gut bacteria effect the status of our choline levels.
High Leptin levels can cause cardiovascular disease and low leptin levels can lead to obesity. I have covered leptin in previous post.
An increase in Dgat1 causes fatty liver disease. Betaine and choline prevents fatty liver by inhibiting Dagat1.
Betaine and choline help restore many of the metabolic pathways involved in the metabolism of choline.
Betaine helps maintain the citric acid enzymes.
Phosphatidylcholine which is responsible for cell membrane integrity is regulated by cytidylyltranssfrerase.
This is not medical advice I am posting this for informational and educational purposes.
These are the things I did that got me headed in the right direction to healing. Many things like autoimmune issues, sulfation, detoxing from GMOs and even herb information I have covered in other post. This is to show people the things I did that got me started on the path to healing. Homeostasis is the goal once you start feeling better and can eat the foods that contain certain nutrients I stopped taking the nutrient and only took maintenance doses to make sure levels did not get low. If you continue to take things after you have corrected certain health issues you can push things to far the other way for example I had high ammonia levels. I pushed things too far the other way and developed acidosis.
I am trying to put a list together of things that helped me the most. For example I had so many metabolic issues that choline was causing me a lot of problems. I would get indigestion if I ate anything with choline in it. It is very important to address issues causing us to not be able to break down proteins because the body needs choline for many metabolic pathways. The choline issues is because of the high phenylalanine levels and I was not recycling it properly so ammonia was getting produced that caused me to have high ammonia levels especially if I consumed things that had animal flesh because it is high in phenylalanine. Potatoes are another thing that was high in Phenylalanine. This can indicate MTHFR enzyme issues which can lead to BH4 issues. This can lead to endogenous oxalates being produced from the other downstream metabolic pathways that are effected. It usually leads to high insulin levels which causes low glucose levels. It also leads to the mitochondria pretty much shutting down so no nutrients are being exchanged and your cells cannot detox. Folic Acid is man made and added to our food. It causes a lot of health issues because it build up in our blood and can negative impact the NMDA receptor in the brain and it inhibits MTHFR enzymes and BH4 enzymes. So I would avoid processed foods because once those enzymes shut down you will become deficient in nutrients because you will be unable to absorb them. You will lose your ability to produce short chain fatty acids from the loss of gut bacteria and enzymes needed to produce them. You also will lose the ability of your body to produce the fats it needs. BH4 helps in the creation of our feel good hormones and the hormone we need for restful sleep. When we are deficient in it we will experience anxiety, indecisiveness and we may display high risk behavior and difficulty sleeping. We become deficient in tryptophan. Many had good results with 5-HTP which is a type of tryptophan that does not need to be metabolized for the body to use it. Once things get working right we need tryptophan for our good gut microbes to get established. BH4 is needed to produce and use the ammino acids throughout the body. Oxalates can be produced in a few different ways if we are deficient in BH4 enzymes and we may develop phylketonuria it can also lead to issues with pyrroles.
Many of my friends would take methotrexate and they would feel good at first and then get worse because it inhibits MTHFR and BH4 enzymes.
Fluoride , chlorinated water and fluoroquinolones can also inhibit these enzymes.
I was so ill I would even throw water up and I have very good quality well water. I struggled to get the nutrients I needed in my body. To prevent nausea I had to put parsley, nutmeg, ginger or clove in my teas to settle my stomach.
Each person is different but these are the basics of things that helped the most people. Please do your research and make sure it is safe for you to use the things I mention. The only animal protein I was able to consume was white fleshed fish except blue fish. I reacted very bad to blue fish.
My gut was a wreck from not knowing how toxic GMOs were, I have posted them and how the effect the body especially the gut. Now add all that to having tick born illness and things good bad very quickly. No matter how ill you are if you plan your protocol and take notes on your health, on how various foods effect you, on how you are effected by your environment it can help you develop a protocol unique to you that is more directed at your healing because each of us are unique.
Because we need protein and I could not eat many proteins I used bee pollen, why protein which you have to watch many of them and proteins to them and you especially have to watch that they did not add phenylalanine. The other proteins it is best to make sure they have and L in front of them for example L-Tyrosine that means it is bioavailable to the body. When you have BH4 or MTHFR enzyme issues you will usually need L-tyrosine, L-valine, L-leucine, L-threonine, L-Serine and L-arganine. If you are under a lot of oxidative stress then you may want to hold off on L-arginine until you get it under control. I posted on oxidative stress and the antioxidant system.
Beta Glucan found in organic oatmeal and mushrooms helps also. Some have had good results with taurine especially those of my friends who were vegetarians.
Other minerals needed downstream that can effect these enzymes are manganese and molybdenum. I took them until I started to feel better then I cut back to three times a week because if levels get too high they can become toxic.
To help my gut bacteria get established I used grape fruit seed extract 2 days then waited a week because it inhibits Cytochrome P450 enzymes needed detox drugs and other chemicals. It should never be used when taking medications. I also took Pepto Bismo because it helps fight the bad bacteria in the gut and it helps fight many pathogens. It takes a very high level of Bismuth to be toxic.
I do know often times when a metabolic or detox pathway opened up and started working correctly all heck would break lose for a few days and I even felt pain. Especially when I started detoxing oxalates , I dumped so many so fast that my bladder took a bad hit and hurt for a while and the pain of urinating them out was almost beyond what I could bare because it is like peeing little pieces of glass out.
Then as the bad bacteria died off and my good started getting established my intestines detoxed. I was excreting some pretty scary things. Slime that was shaped like my intestine, dead intestinal tissues and the fiber that had not moved through my body but was sitting in my digestive tract. I t looked like worms and I thought I had parasites. I thought I was defecating part of my intestines out because often times the slime would come out shaped like my intestine. Also our body uses bile to detox some things like copper so diatomateous and psyllium husk helps with that, also inulin helps because the body will attach the toxins to fiber to be excreted. I was so full of toxins that this took a month to resolve. I found grape seed extract, bacopa, butchers broom and many claim hawthorne help prevent hemorrhoids. I learned that after the fact but the really helped reduce my hemorroids. I would only take the psyllium a few times a week because it can over feed the good gut bacteria and cause dysbiosis.
I have posted on the various gut bacteria and what they do. The gut bacteria that produce our feel good hormones need butyrate to thrive. They also produce it themselves and it helps establish the other good bacteria. Good sources of butyrate is raw milk, butter and ghee.
I had to slowly reintroduce fruit back into my diet. It would take me a week to eat and apple. But I would slowly increase the amount of the fruit I would eat and my good gut bacteria slowly started to reestablish.
I still limit my meat intake because it causes high bacteroides levels which is the cause of most types of inflammatory bowel diseases. Those who get constipated often should avoid meat because it alkalizes the digestive system which causes bacteroides to get into the upper part of the digestive tract and will cause the muscles of the bowels to become paralyzed. The cycle they cause can be broken but takes a lot of work and planning and constant protocol adjustments.
I tried my best to get my nutrients from natural sources once I got my digestive tract working.
The vitamins that we are usually deficient is are:
B12 I found methylcolbalamin seem to work the best for most.
B12 needs vitamin B6 to convert to a form the body can use. Most had the best results with Pyridoxine Phosphate (P5P).
MTHFR and BH4 enzymes need folate not to be mistaken for toxic folic acid. It cannot function without B6 and B2 (riboflavin) .
Most with these health issues are deficient in vitamins D, E, A and K2 which are mostly oil soluble so should be taken when you take an oil. Sun Flower lecithen also helps with the enzymes we need and would be an oil we could take them with along with something that contains butyrate because butyrate increases nutrient absorption. You do not want to take too much K2 or any of the other vitamins. Homeostasis is the goal once things start working again you want to back of and let things balance out. High doses of vitamin D can cause oxalates so I only took about 4000 IU about three or four times a week. Coconut oil is another oil that is good to use. It has monolauren which heals the brain and kills many pathogens. Olive oil is good to use because it is an Nrf2 activator which helps with oxidative stress.
N-Acetylcysteine (NAC) helped me a lot, I only took it about three times a week. I found that most studies I read the most benefits were in limiting the number of times it is taken a week. If consumed too much you seem to lose the benefits and make yourself prone to illness.
Betaine (trimethylglycine, or TMG) helped with my digestive issues and helps reduce ammonia levels from the metabolic issues. They also help reduce bad gut bacteria and increase the good.
The proteins we need should be in the form that has an L in front of them which indicates they are bioavailable so the body doesn’t have to convert them. The proteins that most have benefited form are L-tyrosine, L-Valine, L-Lysine, L-threonine and L-Arginine. L-arginine is used by BH4 to produce Nitric Oxide to regulate our blood pressure.
Many appear to be low in iron but actually are high in a type of iron the body cannot use and it inhibits absorption of the good iron. Lactoferrin or colostrum will hell reduce the bad iron and restore iron homeostasis. Curcumin chelates iron from the body but if take too long it can make you anemic.
Many of use develop sulfation issues which I have posted on. So for a short period of time will as we address the causes like gut dysbiosis , heavy metal toxicity or high farm chemical levels like glyphosate it helps to avoid high sulfur foods like cruciferous vegetables, onions and garlic. If our sulfide levels get too high they will interfere with many metabolic pathways. With the nutrient deficiencies they do not get recycled and converted to the good sulfates which we need. Also if we have gut bacteria imbalance high sulfide levels will occurs. Once our metabolic pathways are working our sulfide levels will come down. This will help reduce our hormone levels.
For detoxing I alternated between dandelion, curly dock, rooibos, sumac , curly dock, burdock, and chamomille so I would use different liver enzymes and would not end of depleting certain ones. Most spices are great for detoxing but you have to watch thyme and rosemary they raise white blood cell count and have been know to raise them too high if taken for too long or in to high a dose. I also used raw honey in lemon juice in the morning to help with glucose levels and to provide zinc to my body. Lemon helps detox the body including the toxins produced by regular body function. Honey also contains pectin which helps the good gut bacteria to get established.
Biotin, selenium and Boron are great for detoxing heavy metals. Selenium can help with sleep. Iodine helps with detoxing heavy metals but if taken in excessive amounts it can damage the thyroids so I got mine from seaweed , also I could eat shrimp and lobster without getting ill.
The fruits and vegetables that seem to help me the most was pistachios, walnuts, hickory nuts and pecans. Green peppers really helped , carrot leaves, celery leaves or celery, bananas. I noticed the very ripe bananas and the under ripe ones I reacted to. I could only eat the bananas that were just ripe to were they had just turned yellow with no green but were still a little firm. Pineapple helped me a lot but the only one I could eat was the ones that had turned dark yellow and were close to turning red and fermenting. I had to ease into fruits and vegetables and slowly work into eating them and slowly add new ones until my gut bacteria got established. I also had to do the same thing with dairy products. I found once I got my mast cell activation syndrome under control fermented dairy like butter milk, kefir, and cheeses help me get over my dairy intolerance. Once I got my leaky gut healed I was no longer sensitive to gluten and gliadin. If you have issues with it, it is a sign of a deficiency in gut bacteria or leaky gut.
We are usually deficient in magnesium. I alternated between magnesium chloride and magnesium citrate. I took the magnesium citrate about three times a week at first then I backed of to twice a week. Citrated is recycled by the body. If levels get too high it can cause liver problems and start to damage the red blood cells. Once I got my oxalate levels down I stopped taking the magnesium citrate. I took magnesium later in the day because it helps you sleep.
Herbs that helped me relax and sleep better were rooibos, camu camu (amla fruit), angelica, mugwort or wormwood they are chemically similar. I also used yarrow in the morning it energizes you and reduces pain. Most of what I just mentioned raise GABA levels. Pau D Arco also raises GABA levels. Gingko Biloba raises GABA levels but gave me a headache the first few times I took it. After that I actually could feel my mind thinking clearer. It should not be taken too long studies have shown after about three months it starts to damage the liver.
Exercise even yoga increases BH4 enzyme levels. Vitamin C increases BH4 levels but man made ascorbic acid has been shown to cause oxalates. If you take vitamin C in high doses it can break down red blood cells. The only sources of vitamin C that did not bother me when my oxalates where high was green peppers, camu camu (amla fruit) and sumac.
We need sunlight to produce vitamin D but getting sun burned can inhibit BH4 enzymes.
We may develop high copper levels because our bodies get rid of excessive copper through our bile. If our digestive tract is not working right and we are having difficulty getting enough fiber then we will absorb the reabsorb the bile back into our system with the toxins still in it because fiber and our gut bacteria detox the bile for us. If this happens we should avoid colloidal silver because it can inhibit our bodies ability to use the copper.
Baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) helps detox many things from the body. It provide the bicarbonate the body needs to regulate PH balance and provide molecules needed to produce stomach acid. I would drink a cup with a tablespoon of baking soda in it three times a week. I would sip on it throughout the day. Increased iron can help reduce copper. Too much vitamin D stop production of cerruloplasm needed for the regulation of copper. Usually I do not suggest taking too much molybdenum but it will reduce copper levels. If copper is not high I only take it three times a week. Silica also helps get our copper levels down and is needed for bone growth and repair.
Pyrroloquinoline Quinone helps feed the good gut bacteria and restore balance, heals nerves and has many other healy qualities.
CoQ10 helped with my energy levels. I got the kind you dissolve under your tongue because I did not seem to notice any benefits to the once you consumed.
Nicacin is needed to produce NAD. Tryptophan is also needed.
To help with my adrenal fatigue I used maca root, suma root and kudzu.
To help heal my gut I used plantain herb, liquid aloe vera gel and oatmeal for the beta glucan. Then when I addressed my metabolic issues I added bone broth. Those who do not consume animal products may be able to use arrow root it helped me. Black seed oil is amazing and heals just about everything. Toxifolin also known as isoquerciten is great for all around healing. It is found in milk thistle.
When I was in pain I used opium lettuce and california poppy.
Avoid Folic Acid it is man made and toxic to the body especially the NMDA receptor and it can cause a deficiency in MTHFR and BH4 enzymes.
folate deficiency cause a loss of MTHFR enzyme which will deplete BH4 enzyme.
This study says Folic Acid helps recycle BH2. I think they meant Folate because folic acid depletes MTHFR which causes a decrease in BH4.
