Germ Theory and Terrain Theory are wrong.

 

 

 

 

Terrain theory is wrong and so is germ theory. I will add more links showing this is true as I find them. Our group on Facebook Synergistic Illness has come up with a theory we call “Enviromental Biome Theory of Health. ” . Our environment as a whole effects our health and if you read my post on here on “It is not your genes it is your gut bacteria” or “Vaccines spread disease they do not prevent them” and many other of my post support this theory. The health of our soil is important because if it is healthy then the plants are healthy providing more nutrients. If there are chemicals and toxins in the soil they effect the body and cause us to be susceptible to things making us ill that would normally be beneficial. I covered that in my post
“Things Science has wrong”.

In this post i am showing how our gut microbiome regulate our gene expressions and our immune system. They also are responsible for all types of immunity in the body. I posted the links to the other blog post that support this at the bottom of this post.

When you read the following studies you will see the connection with this one and how our gut help develop humoral immunity.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27760339

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4916850/

Our microbiome regulate our T cells so it is a microbiome cycle of communication.

Now if you read this study you will see that our gut microbiome regulate our immune system. It is a cycle so we need diversity. Now there are many things that can disrupt this cycle. T cells are needed to keep this cycle going and there are many things that can cause a T cell imbalance.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4451207/

Resveratrol helps restore MyD88 function.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/30107238

MyD88 is needed to fight pathogens. It causes an immune response by causing inflammation.

http://www.jbc.org/content/280/32/29242.full

The Nrf2 pathway is needed to prevent excess inflammation from MyD88 activation. Blocked Nrf2 will cause excess inflammation.

IL-10 prevents MyD88 from causing exciess inflammation.

http://www.pnas.org/content/106/43/18327.full

Along with our T cells and B cells our gut bacteria also regulate IL-10.

https://www.hindawi.com/journals/jir/2014/586939/

Issue with the retinoic receptor can also inhibit our gut bacterias communication with our cells.

https://www.nature.com/articles/mi2016114

It is important for that communication to keep our body from attacking our good gut bacteria.

https://www.nature.com/articles/nature10434

Those who have an over active immune response would want to avoid TLR2 agonist they increase the immune response and the inflammation. This would help those who have low CD4 counts.

Coriolus mushroom is a TLR2 agonist which would stimulate the immune system.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21068144

Turkey tail mushroom also is a tlr2 agonist.

Biacalein is a tlr2 inhibitor.

https://www.hindawi.com/journals/bmri/2012/267890/

We need to keep in mind that our immune system protects us from cancer so loss of MyD88 can lead to cancer.

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0304383518304440

Inhibiting mTOR restores MyD88 this would help with inflammation and HIV.

http://www.jimmunol.org/content/187/11/6052

MyD88 is needed to fight infection but if it is over stimulated it can cause health problems.

this is a good article explaining how toxins effect our gut. I have posted on things that effect the gut bacteria. Now we know that they regulate our immune system and many of our genes anything that effects our gut bacteria including dyregulation in B cells or T cells causes a loss of communication with our gut bacteria leading to chronic illness.

Endotoxemia or Sepsis

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29778648

I have found this to be very common in those with endotoxemia. Bile flow has been obstructed from the inflammation. This results in effects on the whole body. It is why we must work on getting inflammation down when suffering from endotoxemia. Inflammation is the major cause of the damage to our bodies.

This was the hardest part to deal with for me. Our diaphragms can become pretty much paralyzed. When I told my Lyme Literate Medical Doctor that sometimes I struggle to breath and had to force my diaphragm to work he laughed at me. I have come to the conclusion that LLMDs are a part of the fake allopathic medicine. Most allopathic medical treatment is not backed by science.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29925937

Many develop high acetycholine levels because endotoxins can inhibit acetylcholesterase which breaks down acetylcholine. It is very important to address this because not only will this cause mental issues like anxiety it can also result in a higher rate of mortality. This is why it is very important to address the things causing the inflammation.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29853783

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5949165/

The saddest part of it all is the medical community is still struggling on how to identify sepsis. What I am finding is allopathic medicine is usually decades behind the science. For example all research concerning Lyme disease decades ago was proven to have been falsified. There is newer real research on Lyme disease and it’s treatment but allopathic medicine is still relying on the falsified studies from decades ago in their decision making on patients care in tick born illness.

Later Stage Lyme or Illness And Healing

I am doing this post as a reminder to me and maybe a few of my fellow Lymies when we start feeling better we start forgetting to do these things. This will help others who are ill also. But I have other post that are put together much better. I will clean this up and do a better job when I get a chance.

Later Stage Lyme and Illness

I am not a medical professional. I am posting this information because these are the things that have helped me and I am hoping they may help others. Always try one new thing at a time so if you have a reaction then you will know what you have a reaction to and should not take. If you are taking medication you should go to www.webmd.com do a search for the supplement and they will list the drug interactions and side affects if there is information on it. I am not going to mention th more obvious thing like vitamin C because most people are very aware of the vitamins needed. Also I will repeat things because I feel it is good to remind ourselves.

Detoxing

Detoxing is the first step you should take when you have any illness because they release many toxins that have effects on all parts of the body. When the pathogen dies it releases even more toxins so you may get even sicker when you first start treating it. It is very important to get the toxins out because they can do a lot of damage to the body.

When detoxing make sure you get plenty of water preferably with lemon. Chlorophyl capsules will also help you to detox. Dandelion also helps with detoxing there are studies showing how well it works at detoxing and protecting the body. There are many ways to use it some put it in their salads. I like the leaves lightly stir fried. I like breading and deep frying the flowers. I also like drying the leaves and using it for tea. Make sure you drink water because just like coffee and tea it is a diuretic. When I deep fry them I use peanut oil because it infuses some nutrients into them.

Another very important part of detoxing is not consuming to much or too little protein. If you consume too much it will raise the ammonia levels in your body. If you eat too little then you body will use muscle for energy and again the ammonia levels will go up in your body. So listen to your body if you crave protein then give the body what it wants but if you are not craving it listen to your body.

There is a product that contains arginine and ornithine which should help reduce ammonia levels that the pathogens has caused to become heightened. I am not endorsing the product but from the ingredient that are listed to be in it , it should do a good job at lowering ammonia levels. I would only use it if you cannot get your ammonia levels down. It is called Maxy-HGH made by Food Science.

Chlorophyll helps remove mercury and helps with detoxing in general, also helps build the blood up. Sources of chlorophyll are green produce. Chlorophyll can also help remove mercury from the body. High sulfur foods like broccoli and onions have been shown to help the body remove mercury along with cilantro.

Fluoride works havoc on the whole body. It is also one of the ingredients in some drugs that they use to make people more passive. There are cheaper and better methods of killing pathogens in water so it makes me wonder why they use fluorination?

Some methods to get flouride out of the body is to drink tamarind tea, iodine helps remove it, also boron has been shown to remove fluoride. You can get boron by taking a 1/3 teaspoon of borax and adding it to 1 quart of water or if you are using liters use ¼ teaspoon per liter of water. Apple also contain some boron.

Lead is another tough one to remove. High sulfur foods also help in the removal of lead along with the mercury. Cilantro also helps with mercury removal. If you maintain your calcium levels then it makes it more difficult for the lead to stay in your body.

Healing The Gut

Healing the digestive system plays a major role in healing. It is important to get this healed so we get the nutrients we need for healing and it plays major roles in our immune system. So it is very important to focus on healing our digestive system.

One of the first things you should do is stop eating GMOs especially corn. I am not certain but I think peas are GMO. If you have Candida you should avoid wheat anyways but most of it is GMO now. GMOs throw the balance of our digestive system off and make us prone to Candida and parsites.

Lyme and other illnesses attack the digestive system they also lower our immune system so we are susceptible to opportunistic infections like Candida and Hpylori.

From the things we experience usually the lining of our stomachs get damaged. I used liquid Aloe Vera capsules. It helps coat the stomach so it can heal ant also has some antimicrobial properties. If that doesn’t help then I also add Cherry flavored Pepto Bismol. I get the cherry because mint stimulates acid production so we want to try to stay away from mint. We should also avoid things with tannic acid like coffee.

Now to fight the infections in our gut we need to use Ghee. Ghee has butyric acid, butyric acid works to protect the stomach and intestines it also helps break our food down so we get more nutrients and energy . We also get the added benefits of the phospolipids that help strengthen and protect our cells. Choline should be taken at the same time that you use the Ghee because it helps your body process the healthy fats better. Sources of it are milk, green fruits and vegetables, chicken, kidney beans, peanuts, almonds and brown rices.

Now I take a multitude of things to fight opportunistic infections and possible parasites. Alicin is derived from garlic it is the yellow stuff that forms when garlic is cut or crushed. It has some anti parasitic properties and antimicrobial properties. Bromelain is the next one on my list. It is derived form pineapple it also helps fight parasites. Oregano oil has worked great for my Candida and has dramatically reduced my symptoms of Lyme. You cannot take too much of it. There have been studies on people who have taken very high doses with no adverse affects. I don’t know much about it but I couldn’t take it on an empty stomach as a matter of fact I would not take any of these on an empty stomach. Another one I have not tried but heard it works good on Candida is bee propolis. I do not know anything about it. Clove oil is another I like but I do not like the taste. It helps with pain and it also has anti paritsitic properties. Chlorophyll is another thing that is noted for killing Candida it really helped mine. I get the capsules because I hate the taste of the liquid. You get the added benefit of it helping to remove mercury from the body. Kelped helped my Candida a lot but you have to make sure it did not come from contaminated waters. Also it is high in iodine so you don’t want to take Too much of it. Xylitol is another thing you can add to the arsenal because a lot of pathogens can form biofilms and it has been shown to break up those biofilms making it easier for your body to kill them. Wormwood/Walnut tincture also works very good at killing Candida and other infections. It like coconut oil can cross the blood brain barrier. You have to be careful with this one. Only use it for a couple weeks a month at the most and follow directions when you use it. If you are prone to seizures then they don’t recommend using it. I had very good results with this. You must make sure that it is Wormwood/Walnut both. I have tried just Wormwood and it is not as effective.

Now it is important to use probiotics to restore your your digestive tract. Make sure it has active cultures and acidodelphus the higher the number the better it is. Not sure about the spelling on that one. Also eat yogurt and fermented foods like sour kraut and kim chi, not sure about the spelling on that one either but it is the Korean version of sour kraut. There is another people say helps it is called kefir but I have never tried it.

Inulin promotes healthy bacteria in the digestive system and improves digestive functions. (think fiber) Studies have shown that it may contribute to better calcium abosorbtion. Sources of inulin are chicory root, jerusalem artichoke, asparagus, artichokes, bananas, rye and barley.

Electrolytes

Most illnesses cause an electrolyte imbalance. When people think of electrolytes they usually think of the minerals you lose but water intake has to be balanced also. If your electrolyte balance is off then you will be thirsty no matter how much water you drink you will continue to be thirsty. This is why it is important to balance your electrolytes. The amount of water varies by person but on average from what I have been reading we should get between 9-13 cups of water a day. Since it was not specified whether it was from just water consumption I believe that those amounts were considering the water we take in from our food also. The minerals we lose the most are calcium,magnesium, potassium, phosphorus. I did not mention milk because once it is pasteurized the calcium changes to a type that is difficult for the body to use.

Something to keep in mind is that calcium and magnesium need to be balanced, so try to balance your intake of them best you can. Calcium needs magnesium to work and vice versa. Some sources of calcium are white beans, salmon, sardines, dried figs, black strap molasses, kale, black eyed peas, almonds, oranges, turnip greens, sesame seeds.

Some sources of magnesium are squash seeds and pumpkins seeds,spinach, swiss chard, sesame seeds, quinoa, beans, and nuts.

Some sources of potassium are beans, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, milk products, clams, carrots,squash,bananas,oranges and apricots.

Some sources of phosphorus are scallops,sardines,squash and pumpkin seeds,cod, tuna, lentils,shrimp,mushrooms,quinoa,oatmeal, cheese and milk.

For Infection

Since Lyme and many other illnesses lower our immune system we need to take things to help protect us. There are infections that can cross the blood brain barrier. What helped me for the brain part of my infections is coconut oil, walnut/worm wood tincture. I got my vision back and it dramatically reduced my head aches. Coconut oil is a diuretic.

For the other parasites and infections that could get in other areas of the body, I used bromelian which comes from pineapple, clove oil and oregano really helped I felt the effects of them within a few days. I used xylitol to help break up biofilms. Xylitol toothpaste works great for problems with the teeth. They can get xylitol from corn and most corn is GMO so try to find organic. Stevia has been shown to work very good at helping to kill Lyme I have seen many studies showing very good results but I have not tried it. I don’t know much about stevia.

I had candida and some things that really help me was Kelp make sure it does not come from contaminated water, coconut oil, chlorophyll capsules, vinegar, and again the bromelian. Try to stay away from GMO products it throws your digestive balance off and has been shown to damage the intestines and stomach. Most corn and wheat is GMO, Some bananas are.

Deep Healing

There some nutrients that will help with deep healing like Oleic Acid found in olive oil helps heal the Nrf2 pathways but be careful because just like vitamin A it can be toxic to the body if you get too much.

Illness also causes vitamin deficiencies. Usually vitamins and minerals like zinc, vitamin c, vitamin A, and vitamin E. Be careful with vitamin E if you take too much it can damage your liver.

We also lose a lot of the B complexes. I prefer getting them from natural sources because they can drop your sugar levels. Good sources of them are cereal grains, lentils, fish, eggs, whole milk, meat, pork, eggs, nuts, chicken, fish, fruits and vegetables, potatoes, liver, beans, yogurt, avocado, sweet potatoes, mushrooms and broccoli.We also need to eat foods high in Omega3 fatty acids they are an antioxidant just Like vitamin C

Some other things that help with nerve damage are the Omega3 fatty acids, Good sources of those are camelina, purslane, dark colored berries, kiwi, goose berry, perilla, chia seed, flax seed, and nuts.

Love and Happiness

Love and happiness are just as important to healing as the food. There are some foods that will help your body produce the thins love does but it is not as effective as the real thing. The hard part is there is not a lot of love for those who are ill especially those who have Lyme. The things you want your body to produce are dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin, vasopressin, endorphens. They have found when you are happy or in love your bodies immune system is healthier and it even makes your smooth muscle healthier. I do not believe in taking supplements for these because your body can get used to it and then it will have a difficult time producing it.

Dopamine is produced in your body from L-tyrosine. It is found things like mustard greens,fava beans, duck, chicken, white cheese, oatmeal, seaweed, and dark chocolate.

Tryptophan , good sources are turkey, chicken, pumpkin and squash seeds, cheese, cashews, almonds, and seseme seeds.

Serotonin is synthesized from tryptophan it requires good carbs to be produced.

Oxytocin is produced when you exercise, when you share, human contact, aroma therapy especially vinilla and Lavender, laughing, doing acts of kindness, sunlight and scenes that make you happy,even thinking of things that make you happy, positive social interaction even good social network interactions have been shown to increase the bodies oxytocin levels.

Vassopressin will be produced if your electrolytes are balanced.

Endorphins are produced when we exercise, eating chocolate can also stimulate endorphins. Capsaicin found in hot peppers and good carbs can stimulate Endorphins. I know this one will be controversial and I wouldn’t have believed it if I didn’t see peer reviewed studies but marijuana also helps the body produce endorphins. In the studies they were consumed.

This is just a rough version when I get a chance I will do a little better with this. I know it needs work.
