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.

https://www.ihealthtube.com/video/will-forever-change-how-you-view-cholesterol-and-heart-health

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.

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.

https://kresserinstitute.com/little-known-connection-leaky-gut-gluten-intolerance-gallbladder-problems/

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.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5762128/

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.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3718495/

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.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24604078

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.

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.

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.

https://www.ebiomedicine.com/article/S2352-3964(17)30003-8/fulltext

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.

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.

https://functionaldiagnosticnutrition.com/top-signs-you-may-have-oxalate-sensitivity/

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.

https://www.anniehelpsyou.com/blog/item/2-are-phenol-oxalate-sensitivities-causing-your-health-problems

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.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5524634/

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

https://academic.oup.com/jn/article/129/7/1402S/4722577

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Causes of hypertension and things that may help.

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

Homeostasis should always be the goal we need balance. Some things in low levels improve health and in high levels they would impact our health negatively.

First hypertension and atherosclerosis are symptoms of an underlying illness that is causing endothelial dysfunction. Hypertension and atherosclerosis are endothelial dysfunction and to stop it and reverse it you have to find the cause.

Hypertension and atherosclerosis is actually endothelial dysfunction. There are many errors in this they see the symptoms as the cause of the illness.

Inflammation causes atherosclerotic lesions which cause foam cells to form which adds to the inflammation and can lead to blood clotting. This inflammation can be caused by infection or toxins. This is a result of the of BVDL, AcVDL, and oxLDL which are formed from the up regulation of the LXR and RXR upregulation and overexpression.

There are many things that cause hypertension. It is not high cholesterol or a high fat diet contrary to what they say those things help prevent hypertension. It is balancing those things that matter when it comes to hypertension. Infection, inflammation, stress, nutrient deficiencies, oxidative stress, consumption of too much processed sugar , artificial sweeteners , leaky gut, metabolic issues, toxins like farm chemicals found in our foods especially glyphosate, and an imbalance in our gut bacteria caused by toxins and antibiotics can lead to hypertension.

Many supplements can help with the symptoms but the underlying cause of hypertension still needs addressed and corrected.

Many things they claim are genetic are actually life style or gut microbiome that was inherited and not genetics. I have seen many correct health issues by making the right adjustments in life style and their microbiome. I have also seen some who took the wrong probiotic and added to their health problems. Before taking probiotics a person needs to fully educate themselves on things. Hypertension is a symptoms it is not the illness. I am not going to cover weight loss in this post. Most weight gain indicates an underlying health problem. I posted on the causes and what may help.

Our food has been fortified with iron and other nutrients to compensate for over farming causing the depletion of minerals and because glyphosate chelates minerals causing food to contain less nutrients. In doing so many have been found to have excess iron in their blood streams. Another thing that can cause iron overload is infection. Some are told to take iron supplements when they already have high levels of iron in their bodies but it is in a form Fe3 that the body cannot use. They will appear to be anemic but when given iron they are adding to the problem. Also many health issues can cause iron overload. Iron overload can lead to hypertension.

There are a lot of myths about fats that are stated by medical professionals as fact and they are not scientifically true. One is fat and cholesterol cause hypertension. They have been promoting the wrong fats as healthy and have been falsely claiming cholesterol causes heart disease.

Causes of Obesity and Things That May Help.

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.

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.

Alzheimers, Amyloidosis and amyloid plaque.

 

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

If you have high amyloid levels in the body you may get lumps under your skin and the plaque can build up in organs and other tissues. Serrapeptase and a few other things will break up amyloid plaque.

I am posting what they believe about amyloid plaque. I believe amyloid plaque is a symptom and not the cause. I believe amyloid is used to protect the body from infection and toxins and if not addressed it will lead to amyloid build up. I also believe if others read the research they will most likely come to the same conclusion. Also if my theory is right natural helicase inhibitors , mugwort and other things that fight infection should also reduce amyloid plaque. I am going to look at the research and will post it in here if I am correct. I also believe amyloid is used when there is mitochondrial damage . It most likely will be found in cancer and I will post if I find that to be true in this information. If mitochondrial damage also causes amyloid plaque build up then I should be able to find research linking EMFs to amyloidoisis or Alhzheimers. Since all these things can be caused by gut dybiosis there should be a link there also. I have a theory I do not have time to prove but I think that amyloid could be found in many types of cancer because I believe the body is using amyloid plaques to try and isolate things from the body.

Amyloid has been linked to alzheimers and chronic illness. Infection, toxins like aluminum found in vaccines. Mercury still used in some vaccines can cause high amyloid levels. Also some farm chemicals found in our foods can cause it. Excess EMF exposure has been linked to amyloid plaque formation in the body. Amyloidosis is when amyloid plaques form throughout the body and can be caused by the same things. Infections especially Lyme disease can result in B-amyloid formations. Also keep in mind that the amyloid plaques do not only build up in the brain but in others areas of the body and can result in amyloidosis instead of Alzheimer’s. In my opinion amyloidosis and Alzheimers run hand and foot because they share so many commonalities. So what helps one should help the other. I could list hundreds of studies showing vaccines cause Alzheimer’s even those that do not contain aluminum and mercury. As I looked at the research the things that help Alzheimer’s also helps with amyloidosis and Non Alcohol Fatty Liver disease. I would not doubt if it helped with COPD also. I am starting to think high amyloid levels can be linked to many chronic diseases. I will most likely be updating this because seeing the links of amyloid in other chronic diseases make me curious of what other illnesses it can be linked to like diabetes, hormonal issues, thrombosis etc.

Lyme uses calcium to form cyst to protect itself. The body tries to farther isolate it from the body by building up a layer of amyloid on it. This can severely effect the health of our body and can result in amyloidosis. There are other infectious diseases that can cause this to occur. I remember I was looking at an image of Alzheimer’s and the amyloid plaque on the brain. As I was looking at it a friend sent a picture of the Lyme cyst on her brain. I was shocked they looked identical. Could Alzheimer’s be an infection?

Many antibiotics especially fluorquinolones can cause leaky gut so even if they reduces symptoms of Alzheimers they would cause changes that increase chance of getting Alzheimer’s.

Reducing Pain.

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

There are many things that can cause pain. It is usually a synergistic effect of things that have built up and caused high inflammatory cytokines, mast cell activation syndrome, high substance P levels, even metabolic issues can cause pain. I have posted on those things and to reduce pain and start healing they must be addressed. I have much more detailed notes on reducing pain but figure this would be a good start.

Many pain killers have been linked to chronic illness , for example tylenol has been linked to liver disease along with many pharmaceuticals for pain. Opoiods have been shown to increase inflammation and add to pain. Even steroid injections have been found to make things worse.

How endothelin contributes to pain and inflammation. Endothelin is usually increased under nitrosative stress. I have posted on it. Increased endothelin levels can lead to high blood pressure.

Oxalates cause a lot of pain and inflammation. They can be produced endogenously. The problem with endogenous oxalates they block metabolic pathways causing even more oxalates to be produced. It becomes a cycle that is difficult to break. Oxalates cause leaky gut which adds to the oxalate burden by permitting oxalates that are consumed to enter our blood streams. Another thing that contributes to high oxalates is a loss of the oxalate digesting bacteria from our guts. The loss of oxalate digesting bacteria is caused by antibiotics and farm chemicals in our foods. Also heavy metals found in food grown in contaminated soil can kill our oxalate digesting bacteria. Oxalates prevent the gut from healing making the cycle even more difficult to break. I have posted on how to overcome this.

When getting treated for infection it can set off sepsis which I covered under my endotoxemia post. Sepsis can set off mast cell activation syndrome which causes high histamine. It can also cause high substance P levels, high mTOR levels and set off an inflammatory cytokine storm. Vaccine injury can also do this. When getting treated for infection it is safer to start at low doses and slowly work up to higher doses. This also includes when taking naturals for infection.

Cancer, what causes it? What may help with it.

Written by Lee Stevenson, sorry I am a lousy editor.

 

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

These are the notes I compiled together from my friend in our group on Facebook , Synergistic Health. They are an amazing group of people with amazing thinking abilities in my opinion. After ready my friends post and their notes I came to realize that just like diabetes, autoimmunity is not caused by one thing but is a result of a number of things working synergistically to effect the body cancer is also an illness caused by a synergistic effect of a number of things. It also lead me to believe that restoring homeostasis to the things in the body that can contribute to cancer is the best way to recover. An imbalance either direction can contribute to cancer. Most of the things in this article I have posted information on them.

Acidosis and alkalosis are signs of health problems that need addressed. If the health problems causing them aren’t addressed then trying to fight any illness is futile and is like running on a hamster wheel. I have posted on those.

This man tells his story about beating cancer. I have met many who have beat it in a similar way.

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

The saddest part of all about cancer is that it is the most profitable of all medical treatments so many doctors have deliberately misdiagnosed people with cancer out of greed.

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

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

There are many problems in cancer research and it leads to many mistakes in their attempts to cure it. The part that frustrates me is the main causes of cancer are things like inflammation, metabolic disorders and autoimmune issues. Instead of trying to correct those and restoring homeostasis they keep looking at the cancer and cannot see the whole picture most of the time. Even in this article they do not mention those things when they talk about the problems in cancer research.

Cox is found to be high in inflammatory diseases including cancer.

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0002961004003587

I believe people are focusing too much on the symptom and not the cause. If they focused on getting the body at homeostasis they would have more success in fighting any chronic illness including cancer. Cancer is a symptom not necessarily the cause of the illness. Science now focuses on the symptoms instead of the cause. I guess this may be because the pharmaceutical industry is the cause of many types of chronic illness and if they looked at the cause they may lose funding from the pharmaceutical industry. Also the biotech industry is owned by the pharmaceutical industry and it is a cause of much of the chronic illness now days. So many researchers are stuck in a hard place, if they looked at the cause they risk losing funding and most likely would lose their jobs.

Cancer is usually metabolic illness or autoimmunity and sometimes both. One thing common in most cancers is that it uses glycolysis instead of phosphorylation. Not all cancer uses the Warburg effect some do use oxygen and glucose. What I found common in most cancer is they require and acidic environment to thrive.

Fructose feeds cancer in a different way then glucose does. I do not believe fructose in fruits would do this because natural sources of fructose are usually things that inhibit cancer growth. When things get extracted from a plant and are in their pure form the way they effect the body changes and it acts more like a drug with side effects.

Some forms of cancer will decrease when deprived of glucose. Also often times lactic acidosis is present which indicate a health problem that needs addressed. I find it odd that they know what has brought on the cancer but never mention how to address the metabolic or other health issues causing the cancer but they discuss how to treat the symptoms in many studies.

Fluoride is a known neurotoxin yet they put it in much of the water supply in the U.S. , it is also a carcinogen. Part of it’s carginogenic effects are through it’s effects on our gut bacteria.

People were promoting antioxidants for cancer. The problem with that is there are man metabolic issues that if not corrected will cause antioxidants to cause or increase cancer. Those metabolic issues must be dealt with before antioxidants can be used. For example if the Nrf2 pathway is blocked antioxdiants will increase oxidative stress instead of reducing it.

This study shows the importance of homeostasis. Inhibited Nrf2 pathways can lead to cancer but on the other side of the coin Nrf2 activation can protect cancer. It shows that extremes contribute to cancer we need to try our best to balance things.

In this study they claimed bile acid caused cancer. When I looked deeper into it I found it was a lack of certain gut bacteria that break down the more toxic forms of bile. Not consuming enough fiber which absorbs some of the excess bile and metabolic issues that prevent the body from properly recycling the bile.

Bile acids are also involved in inhibiting cancer. This is why it is important to try and achieve homeostasis. We have to get the idea of killing things out of our heads and learn to support the body so it can do what it was designed to do. There are bile acids that are carcinogenic, our gut bacteria and fiber help reduce those. Also our bodies when functioning properly will recycle bile and reduce the carcinogenic effects. This is why if we have an over production or under production of bile we need to address what is causing it, whether it be from toxins, inflammation, a gut microbiome imbalance or any of the other number of things that can disrupt bile homeostasis.

Cancer as an infection. I have suspected this as a child. I would see people who got diagnosed with cancer take antibiotics and shortly after their cancer would be gone. This stands to reason because some infections cause inflammation and metabolic issues which lead to cancer. We get infections when toxins, vaccine injury or any number of things that effect the immune system occur.

This study shows that folic acid and B12 can increaste the risk of cancer. This leads me to believe that the person may have problems converting B12. It would build up in the body and studies have shown this increases risk of cancer. This can be corrected with proper nutrients. Also folic acid is different then folate and has been known to cause cancer because the body makes very little of the enzyme needed to break down folic acid. Many have high levels in their bodies because they fortify food with it. It has been shown to increase cancer risk.

This study shows the importance of homeostasis because in many studies I have read over stimulation of something can cause another form of cancer to develop and completely inhibiting something can cause other forms of cancer to develop. Homeostasis should be the goal because once the body is at homeostasis it will do what it was designed to do and that is to keep us healthy. We achieve homeostasis with proper nutritional support, addressing any metabolic issues, addressing health issues like a deficiency in certain gut bacteria. We should also help support our antioxidant system so that antixodants can do their job. If our antioxidant system is not working then antioxidants will actually increase our oxidative stress. It is very important to reduce inflammation but the body also uses inflammation to tell the body something is wrong and it will stimulate healing. So we do not want to completely block inflammation but reduce excess inflammation.

Adding to this is G6PD deficiency causes anemia. G6PD deficiency can protect from cancer. Now this is where the pharmaceutical companies would look at the deficiency and try to treat it instead of seeing why the body may be reducing G6PD levels. It is why pharmaceuticals make people sicker while hiding the symptoms. They look at the symptoms as the cause and cannot distinguish between a symptoms and the illness. They view symptoms as illness. G6PD deficiency can also cause cancer because mTOR is upregulated when there is a G6PD deficiency which demonstrates the importance of achieving homeostasis.

Amygdalin has been shown to fight cancer. It is found in the pits of some fruits and the bark of wild cherry trees. The problem with most of this research is they purify it removing the nutrients that would be found in it naturally. Purifying anything in nature makes it act more like a drug then a nutrient. High levels of cyanide can be toxic.

Resveratrol has been shown in many studies to reduce cancer. Alpha-napthoflavone mentioned in the first study is an aromatase inhibitor so would not be good for some to use but those who have high estrogen levels it may help. If a person has high glyphosate or glufosinate levels they would become worse from Alpha-napthoflavone. Glyphosate and glufosinate are aromitase inhibitors. I am not certain I would want to take this route in fighting cancer. It would be better to correct what is causing the high estrogen levels which often times it is a toxin. Resveratrol can activate the hepatitis virus so those with hepatitis may want to avoid it.

Carditis , hypertension, tachycardia and many other cardiovascular diseases all have a common ties and common solutions.

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

I have much more to add to this but have burned out doing it and will finish adding things to it later. I feel I have covered the most important things.

There are many things that can cause heart disease. Infection especially tick born illness. Gut dysbiosis, and cancida. Systematic inflammation is a major cause of heart disease and this can be caused by toxins especially those found in GMO foods. Many food additives cause heart disease especially transfat and aritificial sweeteners. Processed sugar causes heart disease. Oddly when I looked at sugars like maple syrup, honey and molasses they actually reduced inflammation.The same with fruits high in sugar so I have come to the conclusion when things are no longer in their natural form they lose their health benefits and act more like a drug. Almost all drugs has side effects and have a negative impact on the body. The whole idea that cholesterol causes heart disease was based on one study that was not a clinical study but was an observational study. Observational studies are supposed to be used to develop and test a theory and clinical studies are used to test the theory. So observational studies should never be used to draw a final conclusion yet almost all pharmaceutical and medical protocols are based on observational studies. We need to overcome the myths put out by modern medicine and their villiainzing of cholesterol. The odd thing is I found things that help with hypertension usually help with myocarditis or tachcardia. But it actually isn’t that odd they are both caused by oxidative stress and inflammation. I have posted on cholesterol separately if you search my blog.

Excess Oxidative stress leads to chronic illness there is a test to see if you have excess oxidative stress. If you do not get it resolved you cannot heal. You can get a test to check oxidative stress levels.

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0009898103004534

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

Cholesterol deficiency can lead to gall bladder problems Non alcohol fatter liver and many other chronic dieseases.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5678091/

Since they have gotten people to reduce cholesterol intake chronic illness has exploded.

https://chriskresser.com/why-you-should-eat-more-not-less-cholesterol/

They also spread false fears about fats to get people to consume their alternatives. The truth of things is the fats we used to consume are good for us and the alternatives they tell us are good for us to fatten their pockets are actually what causes heart disease and obesity. It is one of the things that has contributed to the sudden and dramatic rise in obesity and heart disease.

Another thing they do is to make all starch seem to be bad but we need some starches to prevent cardiovascular disease.

https://www.thehealthyhomeeconomist.com/best-resistant-starch-for-gut-health/

They make all sugars including ones found in fruit seem bad but D-mannitol which is found in some berries has many protective effects and so do the sugars found in most fruits and vegetables unless they are GMO. This is why oxLDL is lower in those who eat fruits and vegetables.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5745665/

We should work towards homeostasis but doctors seem to not know the meaning of the word. They will prescribe megadoses of vitamin C which cause the opposite effects and will cause cardiovascular disease.

Here is an example of the pharmaceutical industry trying to put their medications in a positive light by saying that they raise HDL levels. Bad thing about that they have found those with low LDL levels and high HDL levels have a higher mortality rate. Stands to reason. OxLDL means that the antioxidants system is working. If there is no oxLDL and the body is in and inflammatory state or under oxidative stress and there is no oxLDL it is an indications something is not working because oxLDL is a sign the body is working to repair something so inhibiting it would inhibit the bodies ability to repair. You can also have high oxLDL if you are eating too much oxidized cholesterol. The body has to convert it to a form it can use and if you eat too much it can deplete your antioxidants. That is when antioxiants do help as longs as we make sure we correct any issues that effect the antioxidant system.

Many doctors errantly tell people to avoid eggs but studies have shown they should be a part of a healthy diet. It is the type of eggs that is important. Just like grain feed beef was found to be higher in oxidized cholesterol, grain feed chickens produces eggs high in oxidized cholesterol. We want to try and get free range chicken eggs or eggs from chickens feed a diet that is close to what they would naturally eat.

Cholesterol is very important for the proper function of our immune system.

https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-017-15546-8

Our bodies are incapable of making the hormones needed without cholesterol and statins inhibit the bodies ability to use cholesterol so can you imagine what they are doing to the body.Your intake of fats and cholesterol have very little to do with your levels of cholesterol in your blood. The exceptions to that is if you consume high levels of Omega 6 and transfats which cause inflammation and arteriosclerosis. They also damage soft tissue throughout the body.

Not only that CoQ10 is needed by the cells in our bodies, especially our brains. Statins cause cognitive decline that cannot be reversed because of this , it pretty much causes the brain cell to petrify.

Studies like this amuse me. They state eating oatmeal lowers LDL. Well the problem with that is those with low LDL levels have a higher mortality rate. They should be looking at oxLDL, it is a sign of inflammation and oxidative stress. It reduces LDL because it is reducing inflammation but allopathic medicine is stuck on treating the symptoms and not the cause. I could speculate and assume they do this to keep people from healing and keep them running on a medical hamster wheel so they have a permanent customer. There is no money in a healthy patient. When we eat fiber it increases butyric acid which reduces inflammation and oxidative stress.

POTS caused by tachycardia can be caused by infection especially tick born illness and vaccine injury. It will cause dizziness when you ex cert yourself or when standing. Or when under stress especially heat stress. RoundUp which has been found to heavily contaminate our food supply causes tachycardia. There are many now days that have unexplained tachycardia. Usually it ends up being either glyphosate, tick born illness or heavy metal toxicity like mercury.

Now to cover the cholesterol. Those with high cholesterol lives longer which stands to reason. Cholesterol is an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, helps fight pathogens and the heart and brain cannot function without it. High oxLDL is a symptoms not a cause it indicates there is a problem that needs addressed. Reducing it will make things worse not better. Those who take statins have been shown to have a higher mortality rate.

Gut bacteria help keep our TMAO levels down. High TMAO levels cause inflammation and oxidative stress. It can indicate a metabolic issue or an imbance in our gut bacteria. Olive oil was found to inhibit our gut bacterias ability to produce TMAO. If TMAO is high your body odor may have a fish smell and for woman their vagina’s may have a fish smell.

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.

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.

Nrf2 is the master regulator of the antioxidant system. Problems with Nrf2 can cause the body to lose it’s ability to detox, to neutralize free radicals or it can even cause excess oxidative stress. It is even involved in the bodies response to inflammation.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3947974/

Nrf2 is part of the redox system. Nutrient deficiencies especially minerals can have a negative impact on the redox system. Glhyphosate and glufosinate along with over farming deplete nutrients from the soil so many have nutrient deficiencies. When the redox system is not functioning it causes cardiovascular 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.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5228762/

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.

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.

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.

Issues with the Folate pathway can cause Type 1 diabetes. I wouldn’t doubt if folic acid could contribute to this. It is man made and the body does not produce enough of the enzyme needed to break it down. Many have high levels of folic acid which can effect the brain, increase our risk of cancer and have many other negative health effects on our body. Sadly the scientific and medical community use folate and folic acid interchangeably.  Science has gotten very sloppy now days. Folate is the natural form.

Posting these links to demonstrate something. Inflammation, oxidative stress and many other things cause Fe3 to build up in the body to cause iron toxicity. The body cannot use Fe 3. Lactoferrin and curcumin reduce Fe3 . This would increase Gs/1 which should let B cell grow. Because Fe3 cannot be used by the body it would work as if a person was deficient in iron. They chelate iron from the body to fight cancer because it reduces Gs/1.  So by reducing Fe3 in the body it would let our bodies restore iron levels back to normal which should promote B cell growth. I could find little research to verify what I believe but I am convinced it would help.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Some things that help lower substance P.

Hyper Excitement of NMDA (autism also known as encephalitis)

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

The NMDA receptors in the brain is one of the most effected when we are ill. It can cause blurred vision, trouble with light it will glare to those effected. You may get buzzing in the ears. It can cause bipolarism, autism , schizophrenia, dissociative behavior and tunnel vision among many other issues.

Most things like metabokic issues , oxidative stress, autoimmunity that I mention in here I have posted on and you can find it using the search feature in my blog.

NMDA Receptors

Information on how the NMDA receptor functions.

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

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

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

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

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

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

L-glycine is an inhibitor of neurotransmitter.

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

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

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

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

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

Muscarinic

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

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

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

Psychological Stress or Trauma

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

Vaccinations and NMDA

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

Nitrosative Stress

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

Nitrosative Stress

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Some causes of high NO levels.

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

Inflammation and pro-inflammatory cytokines.

Effects of low NO levels

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

iNOS

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

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

eNOS

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

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

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

Neuronal NOS

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

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

Peroxynitrite

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hydroxycolbamin scavenges peroxynitrite

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

Getting rid of infection and reducing inflammation reduces peroxynitrite.

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

Ellagic Acid reduces peroxynitrite.

iNos has been implicated in inflammatory bowel disease.

https://gut.bmj.com/content/45/2/199

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

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.

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.

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.

Plantain Herb

 

 

Plantago Major and Plantago Lanceolata

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

Healing Interstitial Cystitis.

Written by Lee Stevenson, sorry I am not a very good editor.

I still have a lot of things to ad but I have decided to put all the research I did when I was working on healing on one web page. Hope it helps.

This is not medical advice and should not be taken as such. It is for informational and educational purposes only. Please find a qualified naturopathic doctor with a proven history of good work. Allopathic medicine only treats the symptoms, naturopathic treats the cause. For reasons I don’t have time to discuss I do not like homeopathy although it does have some good things.

It takes a lot of research and self discipline to get into remission from interstitial cystitis but I know it can be done because I can eat and do many things now. When I do have flare ups they do not last more then a day or two. For the most part the things that help me have become a habit and a part of my life so I forget I have it sometimes unless I eat some GMOs or a lot of sugar or something else I shouldn’t be eating.

Excess Oxidative stress leads to chronic illness there is a test to see if you have excess oxidative stress. If you do not get it resolved you cannot heal. You can get a test to check oxidative stress levels.

https://www.ichelp.org/oxidative-damage-may-give-clues-to-icbps-diagnosis/

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

If you have bladder issues and are not certain what the problem is this is a pdf you can download that is a symptom profile for interstitial cystitis.

https://www.mdedge.com/jfponline/article/64347/womens-health/when-suspect-interstitial-cystitis

Interstitial Cystitis can be put in remission. There are many causes like toxins in our environment, pathogens. Mine is caused by Lyme disease. There are studies that have shown that up to 80% of those with interstitial cystitis have tick born illness. Vaccine injury is also a cause of interstitial cystitis. BT Toxins in GMOs and the glyphosate used on them can cause interstitial cystitis. I will try to list links to sources to show the claims I make. These links list the possible causes. When we get an infection in the bladder it sheds and raises histamines and inflammation. This tell the body there is a problem and it will send an all out attack to try and get rid of pathogens or whatever is causing the problem. In those with interstitial cystitis the bladder get stuck in this cycle and the key is getting the inflammation down and getting the brain to believe that things are ok. That is why it is very important to address mental issues, health issues and reduce the inflammation, histamines and pain so the cycle can be stopped.

GP51 glycoprotein has been found to be deficient in those with IC. This causes the bladder to get stuck in a shedding and repair state. I have found adding source of glycoprotein to my diet helped me a lot. I did herx at first because glycoproteins also help kill pathogens.

Each persons IC is unique and has to be addressed according to their health issues. There is no a one size fits all protocol.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5798639/

I will list things that have helped my friends and I at the end of this article.

Each of us is unique we have to figure out the cause. Many of us have metabolic issues like inhibited sulfation or upregulated CBS or BH4 pathways which causes interstitial cystitis. All this can be caused by toxins, endotoxins from infection and the toxins in vaccinations which stay in the body for years. The key to going into remission is figuring out what our metabolic and immune issues are and addressing them. Many of the things I mentioned cause leaky gut so it must be healed. All the things I mentioned above cause high oxalate levels so we must watch our oxalate intake. Also high doses of vitamin C and vitamin D can cause oxalates so we must do those in moderation. Most recommend we do not do over 4000 IU of vitamin D a day. Because our skin can make vitamin D from sun light life guards have the highest incidence of kidney stones. Sun light is good and needed but do not over do it.

That being said I am going to list sites of people who have gotten their IC into remission. The reason I say remission many I know who have recovered still have temporary short term episodes but because we have learned how to recover they do not last long. So I believe we never fully get rid of IC.

Many articles will mention cranberry but most IC sufferers have high oxalates and we must try our best to consume low oxalate foods. D-Mannose in cranberries does help the bladder and you can buy it as a separate supplement. I do not recommend cranberry juice for any bladder issues because of it’s oxalate content. Also it has a high acid level and many IC sufferers have acidosis. The things mentioned in the article below have helped many but they do promote cranberry juice which could cause problems in the bladder. When you see articles that mention cranberry juice take it with a grain of salt.

Bradykinins contribute to IC, grape seed extract reduces bradykinins.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10379755

Studies have shown many IC sufferers are low in vitamin D. I would not take over 4000 IU of vitamin D because studies have shown doses higher then that cause oxalates to form. Also make sure you use natural vitamin D man made vitamin D has been found to cause many negative side effects.

http://www.sciencedomain.org/abstract/687

Many of the species of bacteria that cause IC cannot be detected. These types are usually found in rivers and lakes. If our Acidophilus bacteria is low we lose the protection they give. Antibiotics kill our good bacteria which would make us lose protection.

Epigallocatechon Gallate helps with IC unfortunately many of the foods that contain them are also high oxalate or high histamine. Green Tea if consumed in high quantities can raise histamine levels. Also get organic and from countries that have strict environmental laws. Tea from China has been found to be high in heavy metals and cadmium. Their are many pesticides and herbicides found on non organic teas.

Vaccinations, tick born illness and toxins like fluroquinolones, fluoride, lead and mercury can raise substance P levels. The symptoms are burning in the skin, especially in the scalp area and down the spine. Burning or tingling nerves. Substance P increases at night so symptoms get worse at night. If levels get too high it can cause the body to start attacking itself. Feverfew, chamomille, daisy and baking soda lower substance P.

I know it is hard to get over the trauma of our past and things that may have happened through our life. But studies have shown trauma can cause interstitial cystitis. It is very important to let negative things that have happened in our lives make us stronger. If not then the one who caused the trauma still has control by mentally victimizing us over and over again in our minds. We need to take that back and not give anyone that kind of power.

When you have gotten all things addressed the histamines, mast cells, metabolic issues , inflammation and high substance P levels and learned to deal with stress and past trauma and the IC is still present then the brain is stuck in the shed and repair cycle. This can be caused by the pain in the bladder it signals the brain something is wrong. Many have had success with botulin toxin. It numbs the bladder for a while giving the brain time to reset. Some IC can be caused by spinal cord injury. This may help with that also.

Many who have IC have been found to be deficient in Cathelicidin. This is why vitamin D helps with IC. For those who are not converting their vitamin D to D3 you may want to supplement with D3 instead.

https://academic.oup.com/jid/article/211/7/1164/2910517

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2659525/

Cathelicidin deficiency inhibits our ability to fight pathogens. GMOs, fluoride,fluoroquinolones,mercury, lead, aluminum,glyphosate and glufosinsate inhibit our ability to convert vitamin D which would result in an inability to fight infection. Those who have high levels of these substances may benefit from taking vitamin D3.

https://bmcresnotes.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/1756-0500-5-575

Butyrate found in butter and ghee and produced when we eat inulin (hard to digest fiber) increases Cathelicidin.

http://iai.asm.org/content/85/3/e00905-16.full

If you do not get inflammation addressed then your ability to make Cathelicidin will be inhibited no matter what your vitamin D status is.

https://www.karger.com/Article/FullText/339149

If the ability to produce Cathelicidin is not inhibited and you are producing too much Cathelicidin then you can develop thrombosis (blood clotting) and will develop more inflammation. Homeostasis is the goal. Do not over do things.

https://www.nature.com/articles/s41467-018-03925-2

TH2 cytokines down regulate Cathelicidin so if you are TH2 dominant you will be deficient in Cathelicidin. This can cause skin issues to develop. So balancing our T cells is important.

Vaccine injury can raise zonulin levels, leaky gut caused by GMOs and toxins can also raise zonulin levels which can lead to IC. Also antibiotics and glyphosate can kill our good gut and bladder bacteria which regulates our tight junction protein layers which leads to IC. So in other words modern processed food can lead to IC. To find out more on GMOs look at my post on them.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24662556

Chemicals especially farm chemicals on our food, drugs especially fluorquinolones and many toxins can cause inflammation in the bladder which causes endothelin-1 over expression. This can lead to interstitial cystitis. If you look at IC research many of the things found in our foods and given as medication is used to cause ischemia-reperfusion in lab animals. This causes blood flow in the bladder to be disrupted which leads to IC. Endothelin-A agonist helps reduce the severity but it will not get rid of the problem. It is not mentioned in this study but Endothelin-A is a protein in a family that encodes histone acetyltransferases (HATS) and plays an important role in chromatin remodeling which is involved in DNA remodling and cell apoptosis (death) . Histones play a role in cell cycle progression and development. It controls endothelial growth. Over expression of ET-A increases inflammation. Withaferin A decreases ET-1 which may help with the inflammation and over expression of ET-1. Resveratrol found in grapes skins, grape seed extract and wine reduces ET-1.

Glyphosate, glufosinate, vaccine adjuvants, and heavy metals like mercury and lead can cause damge to the NMDA receptor. This has been found to be common in those with IC. I do not like this study because instead of addressing the cause they want to treat the symptoms which seems to be the main them of allopathic medicine. If I get a chance I will do a post on things that help repair the NMDA receptor. Mugwort, olive oil, CoQ10, P5P, and coconut oil have been found to help.

Toxins like glufonisate and glyphosate used on our crops can cause high ammonia levels which damages many areas of the body especially the nerves which has been link to IC.

https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.3109/15563650.2010.539184

The high ammonia levels will cause raised glutamine levels which will give you headaches especially when you consume foods that are high in glutamine. If you are having issues consuming things that contain glutamine you most likely have high glufonisate or glyphosate levels which comes mainly from eating GMOs and foods that have been dried using those toxins.

Magnesium Citrate helped me a lot. Magnesium helps reduce inflammation. I used magnesium citrate because it also reduces oxalates. The firs couple of days I took it, it gave me indigestion but the third day I started feeling much better and could not believe how much it reduced my pain. Magnesium citrate should not use often. Our bodies recycle citrate so it can build up in the body. If levels get to high then it can damage the liver , kidneys and red blood cells. Use it in moderation.

Tick born illness and mycoplasma inhibit IL 10, Our bodies use IL 10 to detect infections and rid the body of them. Then it will reduce inflammation. Inhibiting IL 10 causes excess inflammation. This cause the body to be unable to recognize the pathogen. When this happens the body will release hydrogen pyroxide which is a last ditch effect to remove the pathogens from the body. This cause a lot of damage throughout the body. This is why it is important to reduce inflammation and to support the function of IL 10. Hydrogen pyroxide will break down the tight junction layers in the gut, blood brain barrier and bladder. This cause inflammation in all those areas. When the tight junction layer has been effected in the digestive system food allergies and intolerances will develop. Warning increasing IL 10 can lead to weight loss.

I got candida from antibiotics. I fell for the alkazing myth and things got much worse for me so I started doing the opposite. Lo and behold it started going away. Candida likes and alkaline environment and will actually switch from commensal (friendly) to a pathogen if the alkalinity of digestive system or bladder gets too alkaline. Our bladder and digestive tract is supposed to be acidic. We have bacteria that keeps our bladder and digestive system at the correct PH. If we are deficient in those bacteria then our digestive system and bladder can become alkaline promoting infection of many types of pathogens especially candida.

Antibiotics, GMOs and herbicides kill our gut bacteria. Certain gut bacteria use tryptophan to modulate our immune system. We become prone to infection if we are lacking those bacteria, especially candida infection. Consuming foods high in tryptophan helps restore them and our immune function. Our adaptive immunity comes from our gut bacteria. When we are low or deficient in certain ones we can have either an over active immune response or non at all. This also protects us from inflammation.

The metabolic issues I had made it impossible for me to eat meat because of the high phenylalanine content, potatoes and other things high in phenylalanine were out also. I had to eat a vegetarian diet for a very long time until I corrected my metabolic issues. If you have sulfation issues or upregulated BH4 or CBS pathways your will develop very high ammonia levels because sulfite levels rise very high and causes you body to be unable to recycle phenylalanine. So as it is used the biproducts produced build up in the blood stream and ammonia is one of them.

Though NO can cause damage in the body it is needed to maintain health. So we do not want to reduce it too low. It will cause many negative health issues if we do. That is why many develop high blood pressure when under oxidative stress because it depletes NO. Homeostasis should always be the goal.

Olive leaves are very good for fighting infection but if you have a high metabolism they are not good for you. They speed up the metabolism. Olive oil has many benefits. It activates the Nrf2/keap1 pathway which is a key part of our antioxidant system that protects our cells. If you have pyrole issues you will have gall bladder pain and/or indigestion when you consume oils. Supporting sulfation will helps with pyrole issues. Also reducing histamines and inflammation help correct issues with pyroles.

Before I got my gut straightened out my brain was a mess. We need butyric acid but our limited diets prevent us from eating the foods that contain it like milk products and the plants that contain the fiber many of us cannot eat because of sulfation issues which many plants that contain inulin which our gut bacteria produce butyric acid from are high in sulfur. Onions are one example of that and I was so lactose intolerant that milk products were definitely out. The solution for me was to make ghee. All the lactose is removed but the butyric acid remains. It made a world of difference in my health I had more energy and could think so much clearer. Since I have my gut healed and my metabolic issues straightened out I can eat pretty much anything.

Modern day chemicals in our food supply and antibiotics can ruin our ability to produce FUT2 enzymes. These modulate our immune system and keep our gut bacteria balanced and happy. If we are not producing FUT2 enzymes then we cannot fight infection and our gut bacteria will get out of balance and we will even become deficient in some bacteria. Many will take probiotics with not results for this very reason.

If we are FUT2 deficient it indicates that we are lacking Bacteroides Thetaiotaomicron which is supposed to be one of the most numerous of the gut bacteria. If we are lacking this bacteria we will have trouble eating certain carbs and cannot break down many types of fiber.

What complicates things is that the medical community cannot identify the difference between commensal and pathogenic. Often times they give antibiotics that kill bacteria we need. When we get an infection from a bacteria that is usually commensal it means something is out of balance in the body. Instead of looking for the problem they kill the commensal bacteria that we need.

It should be clear to most now that the genetic theory of inherited imperfections causing illness is not accurate.

Reducing Cholesterol, LDL is a symptom not a cause.

Cholesterol Dysregulation/High LDL

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Smilax

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

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

Skullcap

Scutellaria

This is not medical advice and should not be taken as such , I am posting this for information and educational purposes only. If in doubt don’t please know your plants before using them.

There are many plants that are poisonous that get mistaken for Scutellaria and are sometimes contaminants in supplements containing Skullcap. Two of the most common that can be mistaken for Skullcap that are poisonous are Downy Skullcap (scutellaria icana) and Germander which is in the Teucrium family.

The ones with the most health benefits in the order of effectiveness are Sculletaria Racemosa, Sculletaria Biacalensis, and the one with the best sedative effects is Sculletaria Lateriflore.

They contain biacalein which I have seen miss spelled as biacalin in some studies. It has amazing healing abilities. S Racemosa has the highest levels of biacelain. It has been shown to be very effective against cancer with little side effects. One of the problems I had with Skullcap was that it healed my nerves and improved my blood circulations so fast that all heck broke loose. The best way I can describe it is when you sleep on your arm and it goes to sleep. As the blood flow returns you experience muscle spasms and major tingling. That happened to me for about three days when I started taking it and then I started to feel much much better. I was surprised at how fast it was healing me. I used Sculletaria Racemosa.

The list goes on and on as to the benefits of Skullcap.

Purslane a super food.

 

 

Portulaca Oleracea

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

Wild Violet

Viola

This is not medical advice and should not be taken as such. It is for information and educational purposes. If in doubt don’t make sure you know your plant before you use them.

Their are many species of wild violet but their nutrients and phytochemistry is pretty much the same.

Viola Biflora, Viola Canina, Viola, V. Labradorica, V. Odorata, V. Rostrata, and V. Sororia are the ones I am familiar with. They all taste the same to me. I love them it is one of my favorite wild edibles. I could eat wild violets daily. They have similar nutrients as dandelion only higher levels of them.
