Why ADMA and SDMA should be included in OATS test.

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

This is not medical advice I am writing this for educational purposes. If you are ill you should find a qualified and experienced naturopath.

Why I believe Asymmetric protein-arginine dimethylation and symmetric protein-arginine. (ADMA and SMDA) should be part of a standard OATS test. Also nitric oxide levels should be measured.

ADMA and SMDA inhibit nitric oxide synthase which prevents the body from being able to produce nitric oxide. High levels of ADMA can be caused by stress, trauma, sepsis, infection, toxins, many medications especially fluoroquinolones, microbial dysbiosis in the gut, systemic inflammation, and many other things. It is also caused by high reactive oxygen species levels. The most common cause of high oxidative stress is inhibited mitochondrial ATP production which increases NADPH oxidase activity. High angiotension 2 levels can cause high ADMA levels. This can be caused by stress or eating bad fats such as trans fats. Low COX2 levels can cause high ADMA and SMDA levels.

Leaky gut, gut inflammation and gut dysbiosis causes systemic inflammation and oxidative stress so that increases ADMA and SMDA levels.

ADMA and SMDA inhibit nitric oxide production. These are the diseases that can result when nitric oxide levels are low.





Cardiovascular disease espcecially damage to the heart.

High LDL levels

Vericose veins and narrowing of arteries which inhibits blood flow especially to the legs.

Liver cirrhosis




formation of fibroid tissue throughout the body.

Renal failure especially kidney failure.

Rhematoid arthritis

inflammatory bowel

dysmenorrhea (severe menstrual cramps)

sleep apnea


adrenal dysfunction

Nocturia (frequent urination through the night)

Frequent infections

Parkinson’s disease

Many will recommend L-arginine when nitric oxide levels are low. This is not good when someone has high ADMA or high SDMA levels because it will increase them farther causing inhibition of NOS even more. Citruline, nitrate or nitrate would be a safer way to increase nitric oxide levels until the cause of the high ADMA and SDMA are addressed.

Things that contain antioxidants help to reduce ADMA and SDMA. PQQ, CoQ10, things that contain procyanidins such as pine bark extract or grape seed extract are very effective at reducing ADMA and SDMA levels.

Berberine found in coptis and bayberry can increase AMPK which helps. Melatonin, is also a very potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. NAC increases glutathione which helps to reduce ADMA and SDMA.

Sophora root is one of the most potent supplements for lowering ADMA and SDMA.

Calcium and magnesium help but the amounts taken in should be balanced so one does not over power the other.

L-carnitine and taurine can reduce the damage to the heart.

Glycine can help by preventing ACE2 overload.

Biotin, selenium, vitamin C, potassium chloride, and zinc help to decrease ADMA and SDMA.

Increasing heme oxygenase will reduce ADMA and SDMA. Sea algae, and spirulina in creases heme oxygenase.

Folate, niacin, thiamine, and riboflavin improve mitochondrial function which would help reude ADMA and SDMA. Those should be taken with food.

P5P (pyridoxal 5-phosphate) should not be taken in high dose. Doses of 100 mg grams or higher actually increases ADMA and SDMA because high dose starts having the opposite effect.

If copper levels are low VEGF levels become low and this can cause high ADMA and SDMA levels.

FXR activation decreases ADMA and SDMA. Most lactobacillus spp increases FXR expression. Betulinic acid is an FXR activator. birch bark, self heal, rosemary, chaga mushroom are high in betulinic acid. Phenylalanine, tyrosine, and leucine also activate FXR receptor. Oleanic acid found in olive oil, garlic, rose leaves, four O’clock flowers, holy basil, pomegranate, citrus extract, grapes, olives, apples, activates FXR. FXR activation also helps to clear phenols and salicylates from the body.

Not sure how but the lactic acid producing Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium increases nitric oxide production.

If you have gut dysbiosis this needs addressed in order to restore nitric oxide levels and reduce ADMA and SDMA.

Any infection would need dealt with. Stress cannot be avoided we need to learn to handle stress better. Learn techniques to relax.

GMOs and processed foods are very damaging to the body it is best to eat organics when possible.

My dopamine notes.

Written by Lee Stevenson, sorry I am not the best editor.

This is not medical advice I am writing this for educational purposes. If you are ill you should seek the help of a qualified and experienced naturopath.

Often times the dopamine receptors become damaged and are non responsive especially in children who have been sexually molested or abused and those who have PTSD. Those who have tick born illness often times have severely damaged dopamine receptors. Toxins such as mercury and other heavy metals can damage the dopamine and other receptors in the brain making them non responsive. When this occurs it will have no effect on the brain when dopamine is increased. Sometimes the body tries to increase dopamine to try and compensate but because the receptor in the brain are not able to respond to the dopamine it ends up causing health issues throughout the body. Damage to the dopamine receptors if not addressed can cause Parkinson’s disease. Low dopamine can cause someone to be prone to drug and alcohol abuse. Impaired dopamine cause a person to have a feeling of reward for things they accomplish. Have an impaired ability to avoid bad situations , learn from errors and from being punished. This causes them to be impulsive and make the same types of errors repeatedly. The lack of impulse control can cause some to become obese from eating unhealthy foods. Those with low dopamine receptor response will experience extreme sadness, will be apathetic, lack motivation, and they will have cold hands and feet. Because those with low dopamine receptor activity do not learn from post errors, and past dangers they put themselves in they fail to learn from the mistakes and continue to make the same decisions and put themselves in bad situations. They often times will be thrill seekers and deliberately do things in an attempt to increase dopamine. Those with low dopamine responsiveness are unable to learn how to avoid and even escape bad situations, sometimes they are not able to identify when they have put themselves in a bad situations. They will not avoid them, so will constantly do things that negatively impact their health, and even put their life in danger. Those with low dopamine will have a low sex drive, and will not feel gratifications from sex. Those with high dopamine will have an extremely increased sex drive. Those who’s dopamine receptors are damaged will have feelings of hopelessness. Those who have a damaged dopamine system may engage in addictive or taboo behavior in and attempt to increase dopamine because they do not feel the reward that others feel that having a functional dopamine system. For example people who get addicted to gambling often times have a damaged dopamine system. Low dopamine can cause symptoms similar to high serotonin. Low dopamine can cause symptoms similar to high serotonin. A person will get muscle tremors and feel muscle pain. Stiffness and difficulty moving. They will have loss of balance and disturbed sleep patterns. Excess dopamine can actually get someone to get stuck in fight or flight mode. Excess dopamine can cause salt cravings because it cause cause the body to remove too much salt. Low dopamine cause cause high insulin levels and high dopamine reduces insulin. When a person has the correct dopamine levels they will feel alert, focused , happy and more motivated.

Dopamine is what gives you the sense of satisfaction from doing task or completing something. Low dopamine gives you feeling of not being gratified. If dopamine levels are high it will make it seem like time is going slow but when dopamine levels are low and serotonin levels are high it will make a person have no sense of time and they will not be able to perceive if 15 minutes passed or 8 hours so they often times will be late for things. Low dopamine receptor response can make a person feel tired and they may lack motivation

High hydrogen sulfide levels inhibits the break down of dopamine. But it increases oxidative stress so would cause the lose of dopamine receptor so the high dopamine would be ineffective. Those with high H2S levels will have high serotonin, and low adrenal hormone levels. A deficiency in the methanogens , inflammation, oxidative stress, high mercury levels, fluorquinolone injury or eating foods high in glyphosate can cause high hydrogen sulfide levels.

Low dopamine can inhibit ATP production causing obesity and fatigue. Low ATP farther decreases dopamine and dopamine receptors because the oxidative stress causes dopamine to be oxidized and dopamine receptors to become damage. Increasing ATP, AMPK activators helps.

Excess inflammation and excess oxidative stress, or even stress can cause the to release dopamine instead of norepinephrine or epinephrine. This will cause anxiety and increased sensitivity to pain.

Pathogenic clostridium spp alters dopamine metabolism and causes damage to the dopamine receptors. This will make a person have manic behavior and be bipolar. Tyrosine is needed to produce dopamine. A lack of protein in the diet can cause low dopamine.

Oxidative stress and systemic inflammation can be caused by infection, toxins and leaky or inflamed gut, causes a loss of dopamine receptors. If a person loses dopamine receptors then they will not experience the sense of gratification when they accomplish things. Leaky gut causes high inflammation levels and high levels of lipopolysaccharides (endotoxins) which damage the dopamine receptors and causes high a-synuclein levels. A-synuclein causes Parkinson’s disease. High levels of unconjugated bile acid also cause high a-synuclein levels. This is cause by a lack of microbes that conjugates bile acid. A-synuclein build up in the brain blocking receptors in the brain especially the dopamine receptors.

Berberine containing herbs such as bayberry increases dopamine production by the microbes in the gut. But if the dopamine receptors are damaged increasing dopamine will not help. Balance is key. Excess dopamine and serotonin can have negative effects on health it is best to increase receptors to improve sensitivity to dopamine.

Butyrate producing microbes prevents the loss of dopamine receptors.

GLP-1 regulated by our gut microbes increases dopamine signaling in the brain, increases dopamine recycling and dopamine storage capacity.

Lactobacillus planatarum prevents oxidative stress reducing dopamine receptor loss.

Lactobacillus buchneri and Ruminococcus albus reduces oxidative stress which prevents dopamine receptor loss.

IFN-a and inflammatory cytokine increases under stress, infection, gut inflammation or leaky gut. It cause loss of dopamine receptors.

Akkermansia in low levels actually protects from leaky gut preventing loss of dopamine receptors but it’s overgrowth causes leaky gut causing dopamine receptor damage.

Most lactobacillus increases dopamine and improve adrenal function but if oxidative stress and inflammation is not addressed it will not mater because the receptors needed will be damaged making a person insensitive to the effects of dopamine and other catecholamines. They also will but insensitive to the effects of adrenal hormones mentally.

L rhanmosus increases IFG1. L rhamnosus prevents the break down of dopamine so increases it’s levels It inhibits MAO-B.

L planatarum produces acetylcholine from choline. Acetylcholine regulates neurotransmitters like dopamine. It protects against Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. L planatrarum increases butyrate producing microbes. Butyrate protects the brain preventing loss of dopamine receptors. L casei shiroto, Bifidobacterium longum, also increases the butyrate producing microbes in the gut. Those who have high levels of H2S would not benefit from the effects of butyrate because hydrogen sulfide blocks the beneficial effects of butyrate. As a matter of fact in most test results I see often times those having issues with dopamine have high H2S levels and high butyrate levels. The levels of dopamine in their brains is usually high but they have a loss of dopamine receptors so do not reap the benefits of the dopamine. Bifidobacrterium infantis

It improves tryptophan metabolism. It improves melatonin, dopamine and serotonin levels.

Eubacterium Sp, Faecalibacterium prausnitzii, commensal Clostridium, Flavonifractor plautii

, Butyriciococcus , Bacteroides nordii , Anaerostipes species, produces butyrate.

Some Prevotella produces butyrate and conjugates bile acids which helps prevent loss of dopamine and dopamine receptors. Prevotella is a double edged sword and needs balanced just like dopamine does because excess dopamine will cause a Prevotella overgrowth. So if you see a Prevotella overgrowth the person most likely has excess dopamine.

Lactobacillus rhamnosus DR7 is found in cows milk. It upregulates the tryptophan and serrotonin pathways and prevents tryptophan metabolism shunting to the kyneurine pathway which prevents anxiety , depression and mood swings. It increases the microbes that help to balance serotonin and dopamine in the body.

Bifidobacterium animalis reduces oxidative stress. It inhibits MAO. This increases feel good hormones and dopamine but could increase tyramine so those with low BH4 levels or inhibited beta oxidation need to correct those before taking this one. B animalis increases Akkersmansia. Reduces H pylori.

Bifidobacterium infantis improves melatonin, dopamine and serotonin levels. Helps restore healthy HPA axis function which would help with anxiety and Addison’s disease. Reduces pain and inflammation throughout the body.

Staphylococcus species produce dopamine. They can also convert L-dopa to dopamine. Staphylococcus produces dopamine from tyrosine and L-dopa. Staphylococcus produces most of the dopamine needed in the body.

Bacillus cereus produces dopamine. Fifty percent of dopamine is produced in the gut.

Bacillus subtillus produces GABA , ncreases dopamine and noradrenalin. It should not be taken alone but should be taken with Bacillus coagulans to prevent it causing health issues.

Bacillus mycoides increases dopamine and noradrenalin

Pathogenic streptococcus can increase serotonin. This can cause tryptophan issues and cause high dopamine levels.

Lactococcus species produces high amounts of dopamine

Ruminococcus spp decreases dopamine

Enterococcus faecalis produces dopamine

These things increase dopamine receptors:

Uridine expecially in the form of cytidine

inotsitol produce by commensal E coli



Caffeine in moderation



sunlight and far infrared

Acetyl L-carnitine

Lobelia increases dopamine receptors.



Cordyceps mushroom



Resisting urges especially ones involving addiction.

Doing puzzles or hobbies such as coloring, artwork, word puzzles.

Doing task we do not like to do.

Velvet bean increases dopamine but can damage dopamine receptors.

Increasing BDNF increases dopamine receptors. Lions mane mushroom, HDAC inhibitors such as increasing butyrate producing gut bacteria, forskilin, valproic acid, and niacinamide increases BDNF.

Things that contain scopoletin prevent the oxidation of dopamine to toxic dopamine analogues. Deadly belladonna, stinging nettles, chicory, passion flower, black haw, fenugreek, vinegar, and dandelion coffee contain scopoletin.

oleic acid (omega 9 oil) increases dopamine and oxytocin it is found in butter, olive oil, free range beef fat, avocado oil, most nuts, pumpkin and chia seeds, cheese and eggs.

Agmatine increases dopamine receptors. Foods that contain it are soy sauce, coffee, flour, sauerkraut, miso, fish oil and oily fish, milk kefir, aged white cheeses and coffee.

In order for BH4 to function properly vitamin C is needed, nitric oxide is needed, vitamins B1, B2, B3, SAMe, are needed. Also PQQ can help improve BH4 function. Low ATP levels can cause BH4 dysfunction D-ribose, niacinamide, CoQ10 can help to increase ATP levels. Betaine also known as TMG (trimethylglycine) can help to recycle metabolites needed for proper BH4 function. Issues causing low oxygen or iron dysfunction or deficiency need addressed because iron and oxygen is needed for proper BH4 function. BH4 increases dopamine release in the brain and stimulate VMAT2. VMAT2 is called the God receptor because it is stimulated when people pray or are involved in worship. When VMAT2 function is lost people lose their connectivity to God and other people. Vaccines are known for damaging the VMAT2 receptor. Eating GMOs, foods high in glyphosate and fluoroquinolone drugs can also damage the VMAT2 receptor.

If a person is experiencing any issues with neurotransmitters it would probably be wise to use antioxidants, NRF2 activators and do and anti-inflammatory diet along with taking anti-inflammatory herbs.

Trimethylamine speeds up aging of the brain this can be caused by low levels of methanogens in the gut or high levels of trimethylamine producing microbes in the gut. TMAO damages many neurons and receptors in the brain. Eubacterium spp also help to prevent high TMAO levels. Increased Prevotella levels can increase TMAO. Faecalibacterium prausnitzii helps reduce TMAO. Pathogenic Clostridium spp can increase TMAO levels. Pathogenic Eschericha spp can cause high TMAO levels. Eschericha Coli nissle and other commensal E coli actually prevent high TMAO levels. Enterococcus faecalis reduces TMAO levels. Methanobrevibacter smithii reduces TMAO. Colinsella spp. increases TMAO . Providencia rettgeri . Methanomassillicoccus coccus , Methanomassillicoccus luminylensis , Methanomicrococcus blatticola , Methanosphaera stadtmanae , Methanobrevibacter smithii , Methanomassiliicoccus intestinalis , Methanomethylophilus alvus prevent high H2S and high TMAO levels. Anaerotruncus spp, Anaerococcus species , Romboutsia spp, Lachnoclostridium sp , Tenericutes spp, Erysipelatoclostridium spp,. bdellovibrio bacteriovorus spp , Mica vibrio aeruginosavorous , Hugatella spp, produce Trimethylamine, so if overgrown they can cause high TMAO levels or if deficient in the methanogens the presence of them and deficiency in methanogens can cause high TMAO levels.

Why they cannot find a cure for Alzheimer’s

Written by Lee Stevenson, sorry I am not the best editor.

Many who have the supposed genes that cause Alzheimer’s do not develop Alzheimer’s so we need to ask why do some get Alzheimer’s while others do not. Sometimes Alzheimer’s will occur in those who do not have a family history of Alzheimer’s. I am going to discuss why I believe people develop Alzheimer’s and why I believe treatments for Alzheimer’s fail.

Often times for something to go wrong it takes many things going wrong in the body at the same time. This is how most chronic illness occurs. As a person goes through life they are exposed to many things that cause illness and the effects to the body can accumulate with time if a person does not address the issues cause by these health altering things, this includes addressing stress and trauma that may have occurred.

Shown that oxidative stress levels and inflammation levels are high in the brains of those who have Alzheimer’s. Oxidative stress can take it’s toll on the antioxidant system and the blood brain barrier starts to leak which leave toxins and even infectious agents enter the brain. When the brain becomes inflamed and is over burdened by oxidative stress this causes protein misfolding and protein aggregates to build up. Add to the fact that inflammation also causes this to occur. When inflammation and oxidative stress levels get too high the body losses the ability to remove the amyloid plaque build up in the brain. Now I will discuss what things can cause the excess inflammation and oxidative stress to occur.

Our food has become toxic. Much of it is Genetically modified and contains BT toxins. BT toxins in the food has been found in human brains. It has been shown to cause inflammation. Much of our food is contaminated with farm chemicals that cause oxidative stress and inflammation, glyphosate is one of the most toxic and has the most negative effects on the body and our food is heavily contaminated with it. Many consume a lot of processed foods that contain chemicals known to cause inflammation and oxidative stress. Foods now days are loaded with processed sugar. Processed sugar is known to cause systemic inflammation. Many drink water from a public water supply that is contaminated with many toxins including chemicals, heavy metals, cadmium and farm chemicals which cause inflammation and excess oxidative stress. Also public water has high levels of chlorine and fluoride which are known to be very toxic to the body and have even been found in the brains of humans. Many of these things also damage the gut and alter our microbiome in our guts and this also is known to cause excess inflammation and oxidative stress. Often times well water is contaminated with farm chemicals, have high iron or sulfur levels which cause excess oxidative stress and inflammation. Now look at vaccines they are known to damage the immune system and cause inflammation. Vaccines contain chemicals that stay in the body a long time are are very inflammatory. When they have measured the inflammation levels and oxidative stress levels after someone has been vaccinated they have been found to be very high. Then they hand out antibiotics now days like candy and they damage the gut and alter the microbiome. Some like fluoroquinolone drugs permanently damage the body causing autoimmunity, systemic inflammation and oxidative stress that continues to get worse if a person does not work to correct the damage caused in their body. These newer Covid vaccines are the worst they are causing excess blood clotting and myocarditis. Because of this we are going to see a dramatic climb in Alzheimer’s disease and it is going to occur in people at a much younger age now. Because the excess inflammation and oxidative stress causes dysfunction in the immune system people get infections much more easily now. Things that we used to be immune to are now causing infections in man. Infections cause excess inflammation and oxidative stress and they have found bacteria thriving in the amyloid plagues in those who have Alzheimer’s. So now, we need to ask why do the Alzheimer’s treatments fail?

When you research the treatments for Alzheimer’s I notice many mistakes they make. The Alzheimer’s is a symptoms and not the cause of the illness. They try to treat the symptoms without treating the causes of the illness. They have tried using anti-inflammatories and antioxidant protocols and have seen some improvement but they have failed to stop the progression of Alzheimer’s the reason for this is they have not addressed the cause. Stress has been found to cause excess inflammation and excess oxidative stress. Stress levels are higher now then they have been in most recorded history.

The body has protective mechanisms that prevent the build up of things such as amyloid plague. But if you are not addressing the excess inflammation, the excess oxidative stress set off but the things I mentioned earlier and addressing the health issues caused by them and doing their best to eliminate those things from the persons environment then they are not going to prevent or reverse Alzheimer’s. The things I mentioned earlier cause health issues that feed the excess oxidative stress and inflammation. To break the cycle the gut issues, the brain inflammation, and the excess oxidative stress need to be addressed while using the correct nutrients to help the person heal from the damage that caused this cycle to begin. The problem is science is now pretty much fake and controlled by the pharmaceutical industries and biotech industries and any who do not use their methods of research have their careers destroyed. If real science was used it would expose the harm they are doing. This is why Alzheimer’s, chronic illness, cancer, diabetes and heart disease has reach epidemic levels now days. Until they are heal accountable for the harm they are doing society is only going to become sicker.

Benefits of Lemon Balm

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

This is not medical advice I am writing this for educational purposes. If you are ill find an experienced and qualified functional medicine practitioner. What may be beneficial for one person may be harmful to others.

Lemon Balm (melissa officinalis)

Has been shown to help dramatically reduce the outbreak of herpes. Those who have used ointments made from it rarely had a another occurrence of an outbreak. It is a potent helicase inhibitor which means it prevents viruses from being able to attach to the cells. It helps with many types of skin disorders. It contains many phytochemicals that are cardioprotective. It has potent antioxidant properties which would decrease the risk of cancer. It has sedative and anti depressive effects so would be best to use at night.

Lemon balm has been found to be more potent then ivermection at inhibiting the Sars-Covid virus from replicating. It has been found to be very effective against the herpes viruses.

Lemon Balm reduces anxiety and improves sleep quality. It inhibits the break down of GABA. It helps prevent uterine spasms and reduces the severity of menstruation. It helps to reduce the symptoms and progression of Alzheimer’s. It helps improve the symptoms of type 2 diabetes by improving glucose levels. It has potent anti-inflammatory properties.

It has been shown to be very effective against Candida overgrowth.

Lemon balm helps to protect the DNA from damage because of it’s potent antioxidant effects.

Lemon Balm also improves blood vessel health which has been shown to improve the health of the skin.

Those with high GABA levels should not take Lemon Balm.

Lemon balm has been shown to improve thyroid function.

Those who eat GMOs will have high levels of organophosphates and glyphosate in their bodies. Those are acetylcholinesterase inhibitors. These ones should avoid consuming Lemon Balm it will make their symptoms worse. Most studies show it would improve the symptoms of people who have these in their symptoms. Because of their effects on the nicotinic and muscarinic receptors. But one study seems to show it Lemon balm has acetycholinesterase inhibiting properties.

High levels of consumption seems to be safe.


















Why those who are chronically ill isolate themselves.

This is not medical advice if you are ill seek medical attention. Do not treat yourself. I am writing this for educational and information purposed.

Written by Lee Stevenson sorry I am a lousy editor.

Before I get into this I do want to explain what occurs is not your fault and those involved are not completely guilty. In our desire to live a normal life we may hide how sick we truly are. When we do finally start realizing how sick we are those around us will offer very little support or help because we look like we are not ill so they assume that our illness is mostly psychological. They will often times say and do hurtful things that add to our stress and can even make our illness worse. We tend to blame ourselves but for the most part it was not our fault that we became ill. The body is very resilient and has many mechanisms that will compensate for things they are not functioning correctly but it reaches a point that it can no longer compensate and then a person becomes chronically ill. It usually take correcting many things in order for the body to get the upper hand and start healing but the demands made by society now days makes it very difficult to heal. Adrenal hormones are usually highest in the morning so symptoms most likely will be worse in the morning. This is also why nausea that comes with it is often times worse in the morning.

Healing from chronic illness requires an anti-inflammatory diet and once that will reduce oxidative stress. It will also require eating more whole foods and for many they may have to cut back on meat consumption until they heal.

When a person is chronically ill they will isolate themselves. This comes with a feeling of guilt because they may be neglecting responsibilities or even family. This is actually a protective mechanism to prevent increased damage to the brain, heart and even the organs in the body. This condition is known as anhedonia. The brain will shut most emotion off in order to protect the Hypothalamus Pituitary Adrenal axis. The HPA also regulates the limbic system. When the limbic system become affected this starts affecting the heart and can result in death. This occurs from sepsis which can be caused by physical injury, infection, stress, betrayal from someone we love, loss of someone we love, trauma, toxins, vaccine injury and many drugs can cause it. The cause of this is because when a person is chronically ill their bodies get stuck in a fight or flight mode. If the issues causing the illness are not correct the HPA and limbic system can become damaged which can be life threatening because they regulate the heart and blood pressure. This also effects a person glucose levels so they will frequently have bought of low glucose levels which will cause nausea, flushing and weakness.

Because the HPA and limbic system function together healing the HPA will help to heal the limbic system.

When this occurs and the brain is still calling for adrenal hormone because the body is still in a state of injury it will start effecting the person emotions. They will start having mood swings, they will start taking more risk in order to try and increase adrenaline. Often times there will be severe muscle twitching or muscle spams or severed charlie horses.

The brain disconnects emotion to prevent further stimulation to the HPA. I found it strange because I experienced this but I still felt the love for others. So I felt guilty I was not there emotionally for them but when I tried I could feel it effecting my health. When the HPA axis is over expressed it increases expression of the limbic system which damages the heart . This causes a loss in blood flow to the extremities and a person will start experiencing ankle swelling, liver and kidney problems which can cause swelling in the face. Nerve damage will occur because the heart is beating irregular so the hands and feet and even some organs are not getting the blood they need.

The limbic system is regulated by the HPA axis. So when they HPA axis is affected so is the limbic system. Symptoms of limbic dysfunction are chronic fatigue, myalgic encephalomyelitis (chronic fatiogue the overwhelming desire to sleep), extreme neurological sensitivity, or heightened sensitivity to pain, chemical and mold sensitivity, a variety of chronic pain, anxiety like attack which will cause rapid breathing, systemic inflammation and POTS. Loss of motivation, impaired short term memory and when it gets more severe loss of long term memories, sever mood swings, it also effects our blood pressure, endocrine system and thyroid hormones. Digestion can be severely affected for each it is affected differently but often times it results in frequent constipation and malabsorption of nutrients especially vitamin B12 and the oil soluble vitamins like D, E and K.

I kept thinking if I just push through this it will get better and I would try to force myself to interact with others and to do things I felt I needed to do like mowing the grass or clearing the driveway of snow. This would result in me having dizzy spells for days because of the damage that had occurred to my heart.

Sometimes it would cause me to get so sleepy that I could not stay awake and I would sleep for days. If I fought the sleep my health would rapidly decline and I would get to the point that I couldn’t even get out of bed to eat or get a glass of water I would have to crawl to get them.

Because the illness cannot be seen many would make unreasonable demands on me. I tried to tell them how ill I was and they would brush it off and even say mean things to me like “you need to suck it up and be a man” or “you need to stop being so lazy”. The emotional hurt that put on me contributed even more to my being ill because the emotional pain added to the stress on the HPA so I would become even sicker.

The links to the studies below show the things that occur when a person is chronically ill. This is the symptoms of someone who’s HPA axis and limbic system has been pushed to the point that it start severely effecting their health and possibly end in death if not treated and not given enough rest.

The first symptoms a person is near HPA and limbic collapse is they will be extremely wired but also be very tired.

Severe muscle fatigue or muscle aches, severe sleepiness and difficulty waking, dizzy spells especially when a person goes from resting to standing. These are not your normal dizzy spells that occur when standing to quickly but they will last for a very long time. A person may lose their libido, gain weight and have hair loss. There may be nausea in later stages because it takes a lot of energy and even for the heart to digest food. When this happened to me I could no longer eat solid food I had to puree it and sometimes that was too much and I could only drink juice. A person may have mood swings from trying to maintain a normal life while their body is trying to tell them to rest. It also causes increased brain swelling adding to the HPA and limbic system dysfunction. Constantly low body tempeture is a sign the HPA has been damaged this will also effect hormone levels and thyroids.

When the limbic system gets impaired a person will first start to experience short term memory loss. When it gets more severe they will start losing long term memory. Mine got so bad I could not remember my name or where I lived sometimes. Symptoms that the HPA is over activated are anxiety, mood swings and severe depression and irritability.

When a person is chronically ill the fight or flight mode their bodies are stuck in will constrict blood vessels and increase heart rate in order to prepare the body for what it perceives is a threat. If the health issues are not correct the heart will become damaged and then there is a loss of proper blood flow. If a person reaches this stage of illness their body and brain starts going into survival mode. When the chronic illness is severe the body knows things are starting to fail. It will induce panic and rapid breathing will occur. In later stages when things get very severe seizures will occur. Because this effects the body tempeture a person will become very sensitive to cold.

Sadly even though man studies show it is not a state of mental illness but a part of their chronic illness society and modern medicine list it as a mental illness and tries to treat it with drugs often times making the chronic illness worse. Family will try to push a person suffering from this into living a normal life or offer very little help which usually contributes more to their illness.

When a person has experienced anhedonia and recovered they can be easily set back and become ill again. It takes the HPA axis and limbic system months and even years to heal. The problem I had is as soon as I felt well again I would start to act like life was normal and would set myself back.

To recover from anhedonia you must address the cause.

If a person has experienced a traumatic event loss of a loved one or betrayal by a loved one they will need to learn to stop dwelling on it and get past it and stop letting it effect them emotionally because that translates over to physical illness. If a person dwell on the loss of a loved one or a traumatic event it will keep the body in a state of fight or flight and the HPA and limbic system will continue to decline.

If the illness is caused by physical illness then the person will need to address the cause or causes because often times it is caused by many things coming together whether it is trauma, along with vaccine injury or a number of other things that can combine to cause the HPA and limbic system to become damaged. There are many forms of chronic illness that can lead to this condition but the biggest causes now days is tick born illness or other infectious diseases because vaccines and GMO foods have weakened many people immune system along with the many medication they are pushing now days especially fluoroquinolones.

This is not something a person can recover from over night. I for the most part have healed but stress still sets me back. I can usually handle physical exertion with no problem until a stressful event has occurred. When this occurs it sets me back physically because it takes the brain months and sometimes even years to heal . Since the HPA and limbic system are located in the brain they do not heal as quickly as the rest of the body. So in order to heal on top of addressing the health issues we need to do our best to avoid stressful situations. We need to learn to view things more positively and get over things that have stressed us much more quickly. Sometimes we may need to talk to a psychiatrist to help us resolve things from our past including the trauma, neglect and out right cold heartedness we experience from those we love.

I will try to explain what is happening.

If we do not correct our HPA axis and limbic system our hormones cannot return to normal because progesterone gets shunted to make adrenal hormones. This is not as noticeable in men but in woman they can develop PCOS or some other hormonal problems. If this is not corrected a person could develop interstitial cystitis. The hormonal problems caused by HPA over activation is a double edged sword. We may be very tired and very fatigued but may struggle to sleep or wake through the night often. We will develop severe night sweats. We may experience bloating in the gut. Women will experience issues with menstruation and may grow excess facial hair. Men and women can experience hot flashes. This comes from the hormonal imbalance and the low glucose levels. Some may experience weight gain, lowered libido and sugar cravings. Processed sugar increases HPA activity so would make the symptoms worse. There will be migraines or severe headaches.

If the upregulation of the HPA and limbic system continues the adrenals and limbic system becomes severely damaged causing them to function improperly the body will lose it’s ability to produce adrenal hormone. This is called NeuroEndometabolic stress response (NEM). This puts the adrenals at the forefront of this anti-stress battle. The body puts adrenal function ahead of other things because it is needed to maintain proper function of the cardiovascular system if it fails then we could die. This is why the body starts shunting progesterone and using it to produce adrenal hormones when all other sources to produce adrenal hormones have been depleted it is one of the bodies last ditch efforts to survive. Many medical professionals will throw substitute hormones at someone which often times mask the symptoms while making the person sicker. When it has reached this point then the recovery process will most likely take years instead of months. Progesterone is needed to protect the body from the oxidative stress causing properties of estrogen so when it becomes depleted oxidative stress increase adding to the body be in a state of fight or flight mode. The liver and kidney become congested and their function becomes inhibited causing them to swell and they will start to develop fibrous tissue farther decreasing their function. Until the adrenal issues and the issues causing them to occur are addressed this process will continue to occur until there is renal failure. This is why when a person is experiencing HPA dysfunction they will have pain in the lower back on their side. Over consumption of B vitamins can also cause that type of pain because the body can store B vitamins and over consumption of certain ones can start to damage the liver and kidney. If progesterone is added when this is occurring it will speed up the rate the renal system is being damaged. In males the low progesterone levels cause a loss of sperm production. Low progesterone levels causes heart arrhythmia, POTS which can result in stroke or heart failure. Progesterone is needed for connective tissue repair in the body. When levels are low the gut can become damaged, the joints can become damaged and even start to leak, when very severe the bladder will get damaged.

There is a chemical released called phoenixin and reducing it can help but we still need to address the causes of the HPA and limbic system dysfunction. Symptoms of high phoenixin levels are poor memory or memory loss, a lack of showing emotions, a person may start seeking adventure or start doing dangerous things in an attempt to increase adrenal hormone levels, if phoenixin levels get to high a person will lose their ability to think logically. If phoenixin levels remain high for an extended period of time a person will experience severe itchiness in the skin. A person with high phoenixin level will be prone to retaining fluids especially in the face and ankles. Phoenixin causes the secretion of many hormones which can farther contribute to the hormone imbalance. It also stimulates the HPA axis. To reduce it we must reduce inflammation, if we have leaky gut or gut dysbiosis we must correct it. If we have tick born illness or mycoplasma infection or some other infection it has to be addressed in order for the HPA and limbic systems to heal. Avoiding processed foods and foods that are not organic is a must because glyphosate works synergistically with the BT Toxins in GMOs and cause chronic illness. Phoenixion can cause a persons body temperature to remain lower then normal. Stress, physical trauma need to be avoided as much as possible in order to reduce phoenixin levels. Phoenixin also causes nerves to become much more sensitive and the pain can cause increased HPA and limbic activity. High phoenixin levels increase the markers found in interstitial cystitis so it will cause interstitial cystitis to become much worse. Phoenixin causes high insulin levels and low glucose levels it causes insulin resistance. Phoenixin causes oxidative stress so antioxidants are a must. It inhibits the NRF2 pathways so it may be necessary to take an NRF2 activator in order to heal. Remember balance is the goal we need some oxidative stress and inflammation to maintain our health and to protect the body from cancer. Palm oil helps to reduce phoenixin.

We need to heal the whole body including our way of handling stress because it cannot be avoided now days. I will attempt to explain what happens to the adrenals before I get into healing them. The constant HPA up-regulation will eventually wear the HPA and limbic systems down. They will no longer be able to keep up. Adrenal hormones are needed when we exert ourselves, when we deal with stressful situations. Because our adrenals and limbic system is damaged they will not be able to keep up. When this occurs heart failure can occur if we try and push ourselves beyond what our bodies are capable when it has reached such a point. I have had many friends while healing who pushed themselves too hard because they thought they were well and they either severely set themselves back or even died. So as we are healing we need to pay extra attention to our bodies and know when we need to take a break from either stress or physical activity.

It is very very important to stay hydrated because dehydration adds to the adrenal fatigue because it an put the body in a state of fight or flight mode also. Electrolytes are also very important to support the HPA axis. A good way to restore electrolytes is to take some water and add lemon, 1/8 teaspoon of cream of tartar (be cautious get aluminum free, aluminum damages the HPA axis and the limbic system), also add organic raw honey which has many healing properties. Cholesterol is needed to produce all hormones in the body especially adrenal hormones. Deficiencies in B vitamins damages the HPA and limbic systems. This is very common now because processed foods are low in B vitamins and the farm chemicals used on our crops causes them to be deficient in B vitamins. Adding to the problem is the fact that much of the farm land has been over farmed adding to the nutrient deficiencies. It is best to buy organic and buy from local farms when possible. Magnesium, zinc, iron, copper, chromium, vanadium are needed for HPA and limbic system health. If you take too much zinc , iron, copper , chromium , vanadium it will have the opposite effect and start damaging the HPA axis. Excess iron can increase oxidative stress. Vitamin C is needed in high amounts when the trying to heal. Taking too much vitamin C can cause oxalates to form and can destroy red blood cells so if you take vitamin C do so wisely. I found liposomal was the one I reacted to the least. I had interstitial cystitis and reacted severely to anything that contained vitamin C. Once my adrenals started to heal my interstitial cystitis started to heal though I had to heal many other health problems to stop the damage that was occurring. The sesquiterpines found in myrrh and frankincense have been found to work very well for increasing oxygen levels around the receptor sites involved in the HPA and limbic systems which speeds up the healing time. Omega 3 fatty acids have been found to speed up the recovery of the HPA axis. I found alternating the types of Omega 3 was much more effective. Some may react to coconut oil because it kills many types of pathogens including mycoplasma. The endotoxins released will add to the body being in fight or flight mode so when a person start killing infection they should do so slowly and strengthen the body and detox systems before doing so. Avoid processed sugars , because the upregulated HPA axis will cause low glucose levels a person may crave sugar and salt. Sugar will add to the HPA dysfunction because it causes systemic low grade inflammation which also puts the body in a state of fight or flight mode. We need complex carbohydrate like those found in roots , inulin which is non digestable fiber,grains, seeds, legumes, beans, vegetables and nuts. Those with leaky gut may have to avoid things that contain lectins until there gut is healed. We need lectins but when the gut is too porous the lectins will enter our blood stream and will cause systemic inflammation. This also can cause immune dysfunction which also causes the body to get stuck in fight or flight mode. Things that contain the highest level of lectins is milk, wheat, tomatoes and beans. The complex carbohydrates help keep the blood glucose levels stable because when they are low the body will also go into fight or flight mode. The most important B vitamins are B6 and B12. Avoiding inflammatory foods like Omega 6 fatty acids is very important.

The body goes into fight or flight mode during infection for many reasons. Often times it causes systemic low grade inflammation and oxidative stress which causes the body to go into fight or flight mode.

Our stomachs contain microbes called our microbiome. Those microbes modulate our genes and health. A deficiency in one microbe can cause many health issues. Those microbes consist of phages, viruses, bacteria, fungus and even amoeba. Most in the industrialized nations are more prone to chronic illness because the toxins, medication, farm chemicals in foods, stress, vaccinations altering the immune system leads to an imbalance in gut microbes, processed foods, consumption of too much of one specific type of food instead of getting a variety causes a loss of many of the microbes in our guts needed to maintain a healthy immune system, prevent inflammation , regulate our glucose levels and protect us from infection. Part of the reason infectious disease is rampant is because many species of microbes are now extinct in those who live in the industrialize world. For those who do not have a way to replace those microbes they have to permanently adjust their diets to compensate for the microbes that are missing which only partially addresses the health issues caused by a lack of certain microbes. It is very difficult to get those microbes from our environment now because the chemicals and toxins being put in our soils have killed many of the beneficial microbes in the soil which is how many of our microbes that maintain our health are acquired. We also inherit our microbes from our parents. The fathers microbe heavily influence the makeup of the mothers so the fathers microbes can effect the health of the whole family. Achieving health should involve the whole family restoring microbial balance in their gut. If we have an overgrowth of certain microbes or a deficiency in some it can cause systemic inflammation, autoimmune disease, nutrient deficiencies because most of our vitamins are produced by our microbiome and we only get some our our vitamins from food. Even biotin is created by our gut microbes. All of these can lead to the body being stuck in fight or flight mode which will cause HPA and limbic dysfunction. Now add to the fact that all this can make the gut more porous which will cause food particles that would not normally enter the blood stream to enter our bodies. This causes a person to start developing a variety food intolerance and allergies. The regulation in the immune system will also cause the HPA axis to become dysfunctional. As this goes on and our environment becomes more toxic chronic illness is becoming more and more rampant. In the U.S. 80% of the population is said to be on a medication of some type. The sad part of that many studies have shown that up to 80% of the benefits of medications are based on the noocebo effect . In other words because the person has changed their negative state of mind based on their believe the medication is healing them they start healing showing our state of mind is a very part of the healing process. The medications all come with side effects that are very damaging to the body so they end up with a new set of health problems after taking the medications , especially antibiotics which dramatically alter our microbiome. If a person does not heal their gut they will be fighting a losing battle and the gut is always effected during chronic illness.

Things that can help restore the HPA and limbic health.

There are herbs that can help restore health of the HPA and limbic system once the causes are addressed these can also be taken as a person is addressing those issues to help reduce the damage. For example grape seed extract improves blood flow reduce inflammation and histamines which will help reduce the bodies need to be in a fight or flight mode to survive. There are adaptogenic herbs that help support adrenal function while reducing stress hormones these are called adaptogenic herbs. Some of these are ashwangha, rhodiola, bupleurum, rhemannia, mace root and kudzu root. Herbs that relax also help to reduce stress hormones, some of them are lemon balm, peony, rooibos, and mugwort.

Exercise in moderation helps to improve HPA and limbic health but be very aware of your limitations because if you over do it you can set yourself back not just for days but for weeks. Even someone healthy could damage their HPA axis if they exercise excessively. Excess exercise can cause progesterone levels to decrease.

Studies have shown that meditating on positive things and happy things can improve HPA health. I meditated on things I liked doing or even on just laying in a field with flowers. Taking the time to enjoy nature and looking at the stars has been shown to improve HPA health.

Positive social interaction has been shown to be good for HPA axis once our adrenal health is well enough we can interact with others. If we attempt to do this before we have recovered enough it could actually do the opposite and increase the time needed to recover. Negative interactions have been shown to have a dramatic effect on the HPA axis. When I say negative interactions I am speaking of those that involve yelling, fighting, all out bad behavior that could negative effect others. Even gossip has been shown to have a negative effect on the HPA axis. I never listened to gossip so I was protected by this one because I always thought if they are saying that about them when they are not around what are they saying about me when I am not around?

We have to remove ourselves from stressful situation that we can remove ourselves from. For example I never liked arguing so if a person started yelling and arguing I would not discuss things with them until they started being respectful and listening to me as well as I listen to the. The bible says “be quick to listen and slow to speak”. I was also protected by the stress of this because I would rarely engage in someone who behaved this way until they started behaving rationally. I used bible principles in guiding me on who I should and should not associate with , this meant some family who caused me stress I had to start cutting out of my life in a biblical way. Though the bible may consider them a bad association we still have familial obligations so we cannot leave them go without something to wear, eat or drink. If they were ill we would still be required to help them. But we would do so in a way we protect ourselves from the stress their life styles could cause us.

Things that cause us stress that are not necessary could be cut down. I had too many belongings, this was very stressful for me. I had to worry about them being stolen. I had to worry about the money to maintain them. I always had a car and a truck. I used to own my own property and it was paid off. I lost that because I could not afford to pay the taxes when I got ill. Reducing my belongings dramatically reduced my stress. Though I really got sad when I lost my house no longer having the responsibility of maintaining it reduced the physical and emotional burden it had been causing which shortened the time it took too heal my HPA axis. I am not saying a person should get rid of their belonging but I am saying to not let yourself get consumed in acquiring them because in the long run it could take it’s toll on your health by having a negative impact on your HPA axis. I have watched many wealthy people die unhappy only to have their wealth go to someone who did not work hard to build it the wealth so they squandered it. This is not always the case but I have seen it happen many times. Since I have gotten ill I am much more aware of what brings me true happiness. I have learned enjoying the simple things in life bring me much more happiness then money and my belongings have. Studies have shown that focusing on the success we have and not on the success we do not have improves brain and HPA health. Studies have also shown if we dwell on past failures then it will have a negative impact on the health of our brains. So we need to keep looking forward and view those mistakes or failures as lessons and move on. Dwelling on them will only hold us back anyways because if we continue to look back how can we move forward?

Participating in bible study and prayer has been shown to improve over mental health and HPA health. Doing good things for others has been shown to improve HPA function. Learning not to hate and not to hold grudges but learning to forgive protects the HPA axis from the negative hormones produced by those. Acts of kindness produce hormones that have been shown to improve HPA and Limbic health.

There is stress that cannot be avoided. We need to do our best to train our minds not to react to harshly to it and try our best to maintain balance and composure so that our adrenal levels do not climb. We have to learn to let things go we can do nothing about and not dwell on the. How we react to stressful things also can effect our HPA and limbic systems negatively. For example often times people will view unexpected events or obstacles as a negative thing. I have retrained my mind to view them as challenges that will build my mental endurance, wisdom and knowledge. I have found this prevents me from getting over excited about things that occur that I cannot control. Now as for the negative emotional things that occur I am still working on this and it still has a dramatic effect on my HPA and limbic system. For example I do not deal well with being falsely accused of something and it causes my adrenal hormones to go through the roof. I have been working very hard to learn to deal with this because when it occurs it sets me back pretty far.

The brain also needs to be repaired. The brain cells can restructure themselves and can even grow new cells. When we learn new things this stimulate new brain cell growth and restructuring. This is called neural plasticity. The more we use our brains the faster it becomes at doing this. This can also improve HPA and limbic health since they are a part of the brain. This is why developing new hobbies or learning new skills can improve limbic health. Hobbies and learning new skills have also been shown to help people recover from trauma much more quickly. Hobbies or skills that require the use of the hands have been shown to dramatically improve brain health. Playing games including card games improves brain and HPA health. Getting workbooks that involves answering questions or doing word puzzles improves brain health.

Self-acceptance or self love is very important. I struggle with this one but I have been working on it. We need to learn to do acts of kindness towards ourselves. I have lived my life always being needed by others and never had time to focus on myself. I either forgot how to love myself or never knew how until some friends pointed out I did not do acts of kindness towards myself and had difficulty excepting when others did acts of kindness towards me. Another part of self-acceptance is not comparing our self image of who we are or our body image to others. We need to learn to be happy with our bodies the way they are. Studies have shown that dwelling on body image in a negative way has a dramatic negative impact on the health of the brain , HPA, and limbic system. We need to accept our bodies for the way they are. Many of us may struggle with this, I am one of them because I used to be very muscular and I also got damage by fluorquinolone drugs which caused me to lose some of my teeth and it also cause bone loss which made my teeth become crooked. I am trying to to dwell on those things because I can feel it effecting my health. I am trying to apply what friend has stated to me “we need to stop worrying about those things because we have much bigger fish to fry” . In other words we need to focus on maintaining our health and for many of us trying to make a living while recovering from chronic illness because most forms of chronic illness the government will not give a person disability for.

Quinolinic acid

Quionolinic acid is very damaging to the body, brain and neurological system. It also causes the body to get stuck in fight or flight made through it’s effects on the NMDA receptors . It up-regulates them this can lead to many mental health issues, severe headaches, this causes a person to be sensitive to light glare, very sensitive to sound, difficulty staying focused. The over stimulation of the NMDA receptor cause the HPA and limbic system to be over stimulated. If the high quinolinic acid levels are not corrected it can lead to severe neurological damage, Alzheimer’s , schiszophrenia, and dementia. A person could also develop Bell’s Palsy like symptoms. This can also happen when the HPA has been stuck in a state of fight or flight.

Quinolinic acid is a metabolite of tryptophan. Quionolinic acid is formed during the bodies production of niacin which is the final step in the kynurenine pathway which is needed to produce energy for our cells. When this process has become disrupted by oxidative stress, toxins, systemic inflammation, emotional stress or trauma, infection, gut dysbiosis, leaky gut, vaccine injury, aluminum build up in the brain and body, heavy metal, autoimmunity, high histamine which can also increase HPA axis over activation, eating too many processed foods especially ones that contain glyphosate and drug injury usually from fluroquinolone drugs.

When quinolinic acid excites the NMDA receptor glutamate increaes , this inhibits the reuptake of glutamate into the cells. This also inhibits the ability to create GABA . The excess glutamate also stimulates the NMDA receptor causing increased activity. This causes even more glutamate to be released. This starts causing brain inflammation, neurological damage and can damage the blood brain barrier. If it become severe enough the brain may start leaking fluid bay the base of the skull and it may also leak out through the nasal passages. This causes sever swelling at the back of the neck and severe pain. When the quinolinic acid levels are high a person will experience severe headache that may make it feel like their head is going to split open. The body has another way to produce quinolinic acid and it is effected by the same things kynurenine pathway is. This adds even more to the quinolinic acid being produced. The alternative pathway is not found in the brain but with the blood brain barrier now leaking the quinolinic acid produced by the 3-HAO pathway can now enter the brain also increasing quinolone levels even farther. Those who have Lyme disease almost always have high quinolone levels because it creates the perfect storm needed to cause this to occur. The destruction of nerve cells that occurs causes iron to be released. The increased quinolinic acid production even more. Since the 3-HAO pathway is producing energy for the rest of the body which covers a much broader area it produces quinolinic acid at 80 times the rate that they kynurenine pathway does. This farther adds to the inflammation and oxidative stress causing a positive feedback loop that can be very difficult to break.

Since the blood brain barrier has been compromised it let many things enter the brain that would not normally be able to enter the brain including infectious agents, and toxins. This adds even more to the brain inflammation and damage.

Metabolic issues and infection that cause high ammonia levels or acidosis can also cause the blood brain barrier to become porous setting of a cycle that would cause quinolinic acid levels to become very elevated. Another thing that increases quinolinic acid is brain injury.

Oddly depriving oneself of tryptophan can actually cause the quinolinic acid to increase. A person with high quinolinic acid levels will usually be very sensitive to the consumption of gluatamate, glutamine and MSG.

These are some things that will help reduce quinolinic acid levels. Antioxidants especially selenium helps to reduce quinolinic acid, P5P the bioavailable form of B6 help reduce quinolinic acid. Vitamin B2 is also needed. A ketogenic diet with complex carbohydrates reduces quinolinic acid and increases kynurenic acid production which is very healing. Certain proteins will inhibit the formation of kynurenic acid. These would be glutamine, glutamate , alanine, tyrosine, phenylalanine, aspartate, leucine, methionine and isoleucine. A person with high quinolinic acid levels may be sensitive to those proteins because of the inhibition of the kynurenic acid. This does not mean that a person should avoid protein but they should avoid consuming those ones in large amounts. When all nutrients needed for the conversion of tryptophan consuming it will increase kynurenic acid.

A-lactalbumin increases tryptophan , and serrotonin synthesis and release in the brain.

Retraining the limbic system.

After being chronically ill for an extended period of time the limbic system needs to be retrained in order to get it out of the fight or flight stage it is stuck in. Things that heal the brain also heal the limbic system. As mentioned earlier the brain can produce new cells and restructure old ones. For example it has been found if a person acquires a new job and their old skills are no longer needed but they are learning new skills the brain will grow new cells and restructure old ones that it is no longer using for the old job and old skill to accommodate for the new skill and memory needed. This also stimulates healing throughout the brain. By retraining the brain we are getting the brain to rewire the neuronal pathways in the brain that are associated with the maladapted stress response.

Studies have shown that past trauma can cause negative epigenetic changes so we need to learn to think positively. Not only that but the trauma our parents experienced can cause negative epigenetic changes that can be passed to the children. Those who have had these types of issues will take longer to heal and will have to address those negative epigenetics that were inherited in order to heal. This involves teaching the brain to react positively to things and teaching the brain to remain calm as much as possible this will slowly make epigenetic corrections so the persons body will not be instantly in fight or flight mode.

Things that also retrain the brain and repair it also repair the limbic system for example positive social interaction, meditation on positive things, exercise in moderation. For those who are chronically ill only do what your body will allow if you push too hard you will not only set yourself back but you could cause increased heart damage and even experience a stroke. Dwelling on our day and picking out the positive things that happened out of the day and dwelling on those have been shown to improve limbic health. Also as we heal reintroducing ourselves to stress slowly and as we do learning to deal with it more positively or reacting less negative to it will help restore limbic health. Constant negative thinking rewires our brain and nerves to be more sensitive to pain and causes neurodegeneration. I had to learn to avoid those who think negatively and talk negatively about certain things all the time. I am not talking about those who vent and then react to the situation by working to correct it but I am talking about complainers who just keep complaining and do nothing about it. These ones can start to affect us negatively and cause our brains to rewire in a negative way.

All the things that affect the brain also affect the lymbic system for example over exposure to blue light at night will decrease melatonin which has a negative impact on the health of the whole body. Earth grounding has been found to restore the bodies voltage back to what it should be and restores health to the whole body. Avoid exposure to EMFs as much as possible. Any insulin issues or glucose issues need to be addressed. Reduce exposure to toxins as much as possible. Many things we use are very toxic for example bleached paper products contain dioxin which is very toxic to the body, I still see many cooking in aluminum pains and aluminum is very difficult to remove from the body. If a person has mercury fillings it is very important they find someone who knows how to properly remove them.

Avoiding processed foods as much as possible helps a lot even ones that are organic are fortified with folic acid which is man made and toxic to the body. Folate is natural and is not toxic to the body.

If a person is experiencing sleep issues it is very important that they work to correct these because the brain , HPA axis, and limbic system cannot heal if we are not getting REM sleep or if we wake often through the night or do not get enough sleep. From my body being stuck in fight or flight mode it had forgotten how to sleep I had to work very hard to retrain my body to sleep.

Anti-inflammatory foods.

Meats and foods from animals feed grain should be avoided it has been found they have a different nutritional content and they are inflammatory. So when looking for foods produced from animal products look for ones that have not been fed grains but have been free range or pasture raised this included eggs. Farm raised sea food is inflammatory because of the foods they are fed and the environment they are raised in causes increased stress which makes consuming them inflammatory. Avoid things that contain transfats they are extremely inflammatory. Transfats or foods that contain them will state they contain hydrogenated oil. Also processed meats are very inflammatory. GMOs should be avoided because the body reacts the same way to the BT Toxins found in them as it would if a person had food poisoning. Artificial sweeteners are not only inflammatory but they also damage the liver and kidneys and promote obesity. It is very important to eat organic because the toxins sprayed on conventional grown foods do not only cause inflammation and oxidative stress but they cause many types of chronic illness . This is why obesity and heart disease has become epidemic in the industrialized world.

So the anti-inflammatory foods I mention should be from pasture raised animals, wild caught or free ranged. Eggs are anti-inflammatory, fish, fruits and vegetables especially berries. Calciferous vegetables in moderation, over consumption can have the opposite effect. Squash pumpkin and melon is very anti-inflammatory. Olive oil , avocado oil and coconut oil are very anti-inflammatory. Fish oil is anti-inflammatory unless it is old then it becomes inflammatory. When I buy fish oil I make sure it is guaranteed fresh and I make sure it contains lemon and I refrigerate it to prevent oxidation.

We need to learn to seize control of our thoughts and be more aware of when we are thinking negatively or reacting negatively so we can retrain our minds to respond in a way that would not effect our health. We must try our best not to react to negative circumstances especially ones we cannot do anything about. We also must retrain our minds to respond positively because if we could do something about it the increased HPA up-regulation will cloud our thinking and it inhibits the ability to think logically. This is why many companies especially the pharmaceutical industry and the media induce false fears in people and then give them false hope because inducing fear causes a person to lose the ability to reason and think logically. If a product truly worked they would not have to use deceptive tactics to sell their products.

Training the brain to respond appropriately.

Some of the things I mention here I myself am still working on. Once our HPA and limbic systems have healed enough we can endure some stress we need to start meditating on the stressful situations we know cannot be avoided and will arise. We need to meditate on how we can respond in a way it will keep things from getting more stressful and when it cannot be avoided how we can respond in a way it will not cause an increase in activation of our HPA axis. If we are dealing with people who cause us stress we need to handle it in an appropriate way. The bible has the best advice for handling things like that. Sometimes it may involve cutting certain people out of our lives the bible has advice on when that is appropriate and when it is not. Some will be unconcerned about your health issues and how the stress they cause you effects your health. When appropriate and possible it is best to avoid such ones because it will dramatically increase the time it will take you to heal. I am dealing with this now and often times experience many set back but at the present time I have no choice but to learn to deal with it in a way that will not negatively impact my health until I find a way out of my present situation.

How we breath effects our HPA axis and brain. When we are stuck in a state of fight or flight our breathing will become more rapid. This increase the upregulation of the HPA even farther. In order to train the body not to do this we need to learn to breath differently when that happens. Breathing in through the nose deeply while pushing the stomach out next breath out through the mouth slowly. This will increase our oxygen levels and help break the fight or flight response. Only do this about five times because if you increase oxygen levels too high it can cause dizziness and you could even pass out.

Developing a core believe system so we can make clearer boundaries and know when to make our yes mean yes and no mean no retrains the brain to react to stressful situations ion a way that the HPA does not get activated. For me learning the bible and writing it on my heart has helped me a lot, it has given me very clear boundaries that I will not cross or leave others cross. This has prevented me from having to rely on my own understanding and wisdom and has gotten me through some pretty rough times.

We need to learn to word things in a more positive light even negative things that have occurred when possible. This is one I am still at the beginning stages of learning.

Massages help to retrain the limbic system and also trains the body to relax.

We have to stay active if we are healthy enough to prevent our minds from dwelling on negative things. If we are bed ridden we need to develop a hobby we can do while we are healing that will keep us busy or find things we can do while we are bedridden. Used it for an opportunity to read about and learn new skills which I have been able to apply and teach others to help them learn to heal. Also reaching out to others and teaching them to heal helped to prevent me from dwelling on negative things too much.

Engaging in small talk and taking and interest in others heals the brain and limbic system. It also stimulates new brain cell growth.

Memory games improve brain health and stimulate cell growth. Thing like memorizing number, or having someone give instructions and then repeating them back to them helps to stimulate brain healing and brain cell growth.

Taking words and finding words that have similar or the same meaning

Learning a new language improves brain health.

We need to be mindful of ourselves which means we become aware of our thoughts but do not judge ourselves. If the thoughts are ones we should not have instead of judging ourselves we should dwell on what we will do to change our thinking and prevent those thoughts in a good and positive way.

Learning to dance or play music has been shown to improve brain health and limbic health.
















Why chronic illness has become epidemic and things that may help.

Why chronic illness has become epidemic.

I am going to discuss how inflammation and oxidative stress cause chronic illness and may lead to high lactic acid levels in the body and some things that may help. This is not medical information , I am writing this for educational and and information purposes. If you are ill you should seek the help of an experienced and proven naturopath.

When in a state of excess inflammation the gut has a hard time absorbing nutrients. It may be necessary to get subligual nutrients until the body has healed enough to start absorbing foods. Some have used transdermal nutrient patches and said they worked for them.

Inflammation and oxidative stress cause the blood to thicken and damages blood vessels leading to thrombosis. The main causes of inflammation and oxidative stress now days is vaccinations, BT Toxins in GMO foods, glyphosate which has been found to be in most of our food supply and pharmaceutical drugs. Also sugar and processed food causes inflammation and oxidative stress. The causes of the oxidative stress are very numerous and mostly man made. Death from allopathic medicine is one of the number one causes of death in the world because many of the drugs and devices used cause excess oxidative stress and chronic low grade inflammation. Our food has become so toxic that it is also a source of oxidative stress and chronic low grade inflammation. This is why eating organic as much as possible is very very important because it reduces your exposure to toxins. Mental stress from anger, hatred , life’s stress, anxieties of life can cause excess chronic low grade inflammation. Constant exposure to mold can cause low grade inflammation and oxidative stress. We have many toxins now in our environment that is also causing excess oxidative stress and inflammation.

Once a chronic cycle of inflammation or oxidative stress gets started it is hard to stop especially when it is caused by vaccines because they contain chemicals that can effect the body for life putting it in a state of chronic low grade inflammation. This causes a persons health to slowly degrade over the years. Drugs like fluoroquinolones can have a much more dramatic effect and is very difficult to overcome.

Most will be told these things are genetic. When you hear them say something is genetic this usually means they are putting up a smoke screen for the harm they have done, or they lack the knowledge to understand what is really occuring and what the real cause of illness or they are brushing it under the carpet to hide the harm being done by the biotech industry, food industry, medical industry or pharmaceutical industry. This is why you will most likely not get answers from the allopathic community as to why you are ill and what led up to you becoming ill. As an example my family used to remain pretty healthy on both my mothers and my fathers side until they were in their upper 80 and 90s. As a matter of fact one of my aunts died at 102 and she was a smoker. Now most of my family starts suffering from chronic illness very young and they are now dying in their 40s and 50s. I see this occurring in many families and I wonder why no one is asking why?

Since our bodies are under constant attack from the oxidative stress and inflammation it is making us more prone to diabetes, cancer, autoimmunity , cardiovascular disease, lung disease and infectious diseases. This is also why tick born illness is rampant. Modern day society is losing our ability to fight infection because our bodies are under constant assault. Allopathic medicine gives you drugs to mask the symptoms to make you feel better but often times they are speeding up the rate that our health declines. Because man is losing the ability to fight infection it is leading to infectious diseases that normally would not effect us to be able to jump species. Once they jump species they rapidly adapt becoming much more dangerous then previous infectious diseases. Those most vulnerable to these diseases are the ones who are in a constant state of inflammation and oxidative stress.

The chronic illness is a symptom it is the oxidative stress and inflammation that is causing the problems. This causes you to experience psuedohypoxia. Though you have adequate levels of oxygen in your blood it is not getting to your tissues. This causes the cells to be in a state of hypoxia. This state of hypoxia causes you to use alternative metabolic pathways as a source of energy. Those alternative metabolic pathways result in the production of lactic acid at a rate faster then what your body can remove it. It also result in increased oxidative stress and increased inflammation.

The body is very resilient, it can take quite a few assaults before it breaks down and loses the ability to repair. When the oxidative stress and chronic low grade inflammation reach a certain point the body can no longer repair fast enough to be able to keep up and our health slowly declines. The more it declines the more prone we become to infection. It has gotten so bad now days that even commensal microbes we need are acting almost as if they are an infectious agent now days. Man has always had to deal with tick born illness, mold and many other things. They did not bother us before because our bodies were not always under constant toxic assault.

In order to heal and prevent farther illness you need to address the cause of the chronic inflammation and oxidative stress.

When we are in a state of chronic low grade inflammation it can cause thrombosis. This deprives the bodies tissues of oxygen. Even though our plasma oxygen levels may be normal because of the excess blood clotting the blood cannot reach our tissues. This causes our blood vessels to break down farther depriving the bodies tissues of much needed oxygen. This is often times referred to as pseudohypoxia some refer to is as tissue hypoxia. This causes the body to use alternative pathways to create energy for the cells. Often times this leads to lactic acid build of in the body because it is a byproduct of the alternative pathways energy production. With the alternative pathways being used lactic acid is being produced at a faster rate then the body can remover or convert it.

In order to heal we need to address the thrombosis so the tissues can get the oxygen they need, we need to address the inflammation and the excess oxidative stress. If we do not it does not matter how many supplements or how healthy your diet is you will not heal.

We need inflammation and oxidative stress in order to heal and protect us from infection so we need to find balance. Excess oxidative stress and inflammation can inhibit our ability to fight infection and if inflammation and oxidative stress is totally inhibited then the body cannot remove scar tissue and cannot fight infection so balance is key to healing.

Now the metabolic and genetic issues caused by these things are complex and needs someone experienced to help a person understand what they need to do in order to heal. There are many protocols out there but there is no one size fits all protocol. Healing is unique for each person and has to be geared towards the exposome of their family and location. We must correct any problems that may have been passed down from their parents exposome effecting their genes and we also have to address the effects of their present exposome on their genes. I am only going to lightly touch on things that will help but it is best to seek the treatment from an experienced naturopath with a proven good track record. Allopathic medicine gets you on a medical hamster wheel because there is no profit in treating the illness because a healthy customer is a lost customer. I have in a few instances seen naturopaths who used a similar tactic though it is not as common in naturopathic medicine I have seen naturopaths that have gotten people on a naturopathic hamster wheel. They sell products that treat the symptoms and not the cause of illness. So the person has moved from an allopathic hamster wheel to a naturopathic one. It is best to find out how successful the naturopath is before you hire them.

Once the body is in this chronic low grade inflammatory state and state of excess oxidative stress the cycle is very difficult to break. It takes time to heal. If you are living in mold it will take much much longer to heal because the toxins produced by mold cause inflammation and oxidative stress. This is also why those living in mold are more susceptible to injury from vaccines, GMOs, farm toxins found in our foods and allopathic drugs.

In order for your body to heal you have to address the health issues that have been caused while reducing the oxidative stress and chronic low grade inflammation that has been caused.

The oxidative stress and inflammation can effect many metabolic pathways and genes. It can even cause negative epigenetic changes which can get passed to children. So when a person is healing sometimes it is necessary to consider the negative epigenetic changes that may have occurred in their familes.

Our microbiome modulate many of our metabolic pathways and genes. Toxins, bad food choices and even vaccine injury can alter our microbiome. Also our genes and metabolic pathways need to communicate with our microbiome. When there is excess oxidative stress and inflammation this communication get broken. Also antibiotics, processed foods, GMO, farm chemicals in our food and even emotional and physical stress can alter our microbiome. We inherit our microbiome from our parents so any microbe alterations they experience will be passed to their children. Many of the gut microbes needed to maintain our health are now extinct in the guts of those who live in the U.S. and other nations who have high herbicide, pesticide and antibiotic use. This is why chronic illness, autoimmunity, and cancer are so rampant now days.

In order to help the body get the upper hand we need to detox, address genetic and metabolic issues and correct our microbiome imbalance and any other things in our exposome that are negatively impacting our health. We need to reduce the inflammation and oxidative stress and work on correcting microbiota, metabolic and gene issues. This take someone very experienced and is unique to each person. In my opinion we need a variety of naturopaths who communicate with each other and specialize in a specific area because the many health problems caused by these things are complex and some can take years to study to fully learn how to correct them.

Inflammation , oxidative stress and altered gut microbes can increase zonulin levels. This will cause a person to develop food allergies and intolerance. Once again they will tell people this is genetic when in actuality it has been caused by the toxic environment from man. Since we inherit our gut microbiome from our parents that damage gets passed to our children unless we correct it. Since we inherit our microbiome from our parents imagine how sick each generation is going to get as more and more farm chemicals and other toxins that are found in our food increases. Imagine all those who’s microbiome has been altered by antibiotics. This next generation of children to not stand a chance. I microbiome make up 80 percent of our immune system, they also keep our bodies from attacking themselves. Our microbiome prevent the absorption of toxins and regulate our zonulin levels. When zonulin is unchecked and gets too high it can lead to leaky gut which cause us to become sensitive to almost every thing we eat.

So the key to healing is to heal our guts, decrease inflammation and oxidative stress while addressing metabolic and gene issues a person may have. Removing the offending factors from our environment.

There are negative epigenetic changes that can occur to our parents and can be passed to us. Things such as trauma, nutrient deficiencies, toxins and many other things can cause negative epigenetic changes. Often times this can be corrected.

Another thing that causes inflammation and oxidative stress is nutrient deficiencies. This can be caused by a lack of variety in our diets, eating processed foods or consumption of foods that contain glyphosate or foods that have been grown where it has been used because glyphosate chelates minerals from the soil and when foods are consumed that contain it which most of our food supply has been found to be contaminated with it then it chelates the nutrients from the body also. Many believe this is why they started fortifying foods with vitamins because they started doing this at the same time the government approved it’s use. Documents showing communications between the government and Monsanto show that hey had the fact that this was occurring.

I am not going to get into detail on how to heal but I am going to make some suggestions. If you are chronically ill it is best to find an experienced naturopath with a proven track record for helping others to heal.

I am going to discuss some things that help reduce lactic acid but acetaldehyde will most likely need addressed also because excess lactic acid feeds the acetaldehyde producing microbes. Acetaldehyde is also a byproduct of alcohol consumption so those who have acetaldehyde levels will become intoxicated. There are reports of people who have never touched a drop of alcohol in their life and they have failed breathalyzer test and sobriety test. Auto-brewery syndrome can be caused by antibiotics or consuming foods high in glyphosate. Avoiding foods high in processed carbohydrates can help prevent auto-brewery syndrome. Also eating organic as much as possible help reduce the risk of developing it. Eating more complex fibers like organic unpolished brown rice, barley, pasta cooked Al dente , vegetables, many herbs like parsley and oregano help prevent it. Oats, and lentils also reduce the risk of it occurring. Things that can help reduce lactic acid are coconut oil, omega 3 oil, rutabaga, ginger, olive oil, lemon and other citrus fruit, pumpkin seeds, algae or seaweed, curcumin, Pau Darco, pineapple, nuts, grape seed extract , mugwort, wormwood, cinnamon, burdock root, and mushrooms help reduce lactic acid because they contain beta glucan. Bifidobacteria acidifies the gut which reduces pathogens and acetaldehyde producing microbes. Some nutrients that help are low dose biotin and consuming food grade Saccharomyces cereviciae. Also reducing glucose, fructose, and lactose consumption until homeostasis in the gut is reached should also help. The thrombosis, inflammation and oxidative stress still need to be addressed so that the body can start getting the upper hand and heal.

The poor circulation caused by thrombosis causes circulation shunting so the tissues are not getting the oxygen they need. This also causes damage to the blood vessels causing farther loss of oxygen to the bodies tissues. The oxygen levels in the plasma can appear to be normal but CO2 levels are usually high in those suffering from this. Another thing that can cause this type of shunting is if someone has catacholamine issues. Those suffering from this will most likely experience bone loss, muscle loss and ligaments and other soft tissue will start to deteriorate and they will start developing skin lesions. Mannose can help reduce the damage until the issues causing this are addressed. It is found in gaur gum, locust bean, genugreek gum, tara gum, konjac gum, peaches, apples, oranges, berries, cabbage, turnip, tomatoes especially green tomatoes, berries, palm kernel oil, cayenne pepper, kidney beans, lima beans, aloe vera, and bakers yeast. Taking high amounts of mannose can cause bloating, diarrhea, and kidney damage. Mannose also helps correct misfolded proteins which is a problem found in almost all forms of interstitial cystitis.

Ursolic acid can also increase oxygen levels to the cells. It is found in rosemary, apples , majorem, oregano and hawthorn. Also ursolic acid and Tomatidine can help to restore muscle mass by inhibiting ATF-4 activation. Tomatidine helps those who have APOE4 issues. Excess Tomatidine can cause tachycardia and can cause increased blood pressure. Tomatidine is found in green tomatoes and cherry tomatoes.

In order to get oxygen to the cells it is also very important to improve blood flow. These help improve blood flow. Cayenne pepper, grape seed extract, bromelain found in pineapples, pomegranate, cinnamon, cod liver oil, beets, L-arginine, tumeric, leafy greens, citrus fruits, walnuts, tomatoes, berries, foods high in vitamin E, wheat germ oil, grape seed extract Avocado, ginger and Foods high in B vitamins such as mushrooms, kale and spinach. Remember to cook kale and spinach because they are high in oxalates. Once you cook them dump the water to get rid of the oxalates. Gotu Kola, bacopa, hawthorne, Ginkgo Biloba, thyme, horny goat weed, and green tea also improve blood flow. Getting massages improves blood flow and speeds up lactic acid clearance from the body. Vitamin D also improves blood flow to cells. Stretching improves blood flow to the cells. Stimulating HSP70 improves blood flow to the cells but should be done in moderation because overstimulating it can increase oxidaive stress. HSP70 also helps remove scar tissue from the body and corrects misfolded proteins. You can simulate HSP70 by going from hot to cold for example by getting in a sauna and then taking a cold shower. I could not do that because my Lyme carditis was bad at the time so I would splash my face with cold water after I showered and it did help.

Now to address the oxidative stress. These are the most potent anti-oxidants, keep in mind we need a certain amount of oxidative stress to protect us from cancer and infection, it is also needed to remove toxins and scar tissue from the body. Olives contain the most potent antioxidant found. It is called Hydroxytyrosol. It improves mitochondrial function and reduces inflammation. Astaxantan found in trout , shrimp, and salmon. Pyrroquinolone quinnone found in green peppers, pine bark extract, larch bark extract,

Addressing the inflammation. These things help with inflammation. Magnesium, berries, fatty fish like salmon, sardines, mackerel and anchovies reduce inflammation. Broccoli, bell peppers, mushrooms, dark chocolate, cherries, swiss chard, bok choy, celery and beets are good for reducing inflammation. Sinapinic acid found in wine, vinegar, black mustard seed which has to be organic because they have GMO mustard, raspberries, avocado, mango, onion, garlic, rye, dill, sage, anise, turnip greens, oats, and beer contain Sinapinic acid. Sinapinic Acid increases estradiol concentrations in the body and is a more potent pain killer then aspirin. It is also one of the most potent anti-inflammatories there is. I mentioned melatonin being and anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. I usually do not like taking things that the body can produce because often times that can destroy the bodies ability to produce it but this does not occur with melatonin. N-acetyl-cystein (NAC) and glycine are very potent anti-inflammatories and antioxidants. Once you reach homeostasis with NAC it is best to start pulsing it to about three days a week. Alpha-Lactalbumin found in hydrolysed whey protein helps reduce inflammation better then aspirin. Proteins that help reduce inflammation are taurine, histidine, and carnotine. They are found in gelatin, scallop, fish, potatoes, legumes, beans, and eggs. Gaba also reduces inflammation. Bifidobactieria and commensal clostridia increase GABA levels. If a person is having trouble gaining weigh increasing prevotella will increase weight gain and is very potent at reducing zonulin levels and inflammation. Vitamin B6 and B12 help reduce inflammation. Often times when under oxidative stress or chronic inflammation we cannot convert B6 and B12 to the bioavailable forms. This happened to me so I had to take the bioavailable forms of B6 and B12. The body needs B6 in order to use B12 so it should be taken first. Many take hydroxyl B12 but the only one that worked for me was methyl B12. Yarrow reduces inflammation and also has effects similar to caffeine without the side effects of caffeine. Citroline helps reduce inflammation but should not be taken for long periods of time and should be pulsed about three times a week once homeostasis is reached because the body recycles it and it can build up in the blood stream and start damaging red blood cells and the liver. CoQ10 decreases inflammation but a person should detox before taking it because it can cause the cell to release toxins that may be in them. I would say it would be best to pulse it at first and detox between doses and then as you react less take it more often. I had to take it twice a day in order to notice the benefits.

Now to correct the leaky gut if you have food sensitivities you will need to increase intake of mucilage. Arrow root, kudzu root and maca root are good sources of mucilage. Also you oxalate absorption is increase so consuming calcium with food helps prevent oxalate absorption until you get your gut healed. Increased zonulin causes food allergies, high histamines, food intolerance, systematic inflammation and oxidative stress. You may have to avoid gluten, casein , and other foods like beans for a while because they contain lectins which can cause inflammation in the body when zonulin levels are high and they can also irritate the gut when zonulin levels are high. Inflammation can cause high adrenal activity causing the body to get stuck in a state of fight or flight. It is very important to learn to relax and handle stress as well as possible. A breathing technique that helped me relax is breathing in through the nose and exhaling it slowly through the mouth. Colostrum also decreases zonulin levels. These microbes reduce zonulin levels and inflammation but should not be taken until the butyrate producing microbes are restored. Enterococcus Faecium, Lactobacillus Acidophillus, Lactobacillus Brevis, and Lactococcus Lactis.  Artichokes, bananas, chicory inulin, Jerusalem artichoke, fruit pectin, and coconut oil help to increase the butyrate producing and zonulin reducing microbes.

Meditating on positive things has been shown to speed up healing of the gut. Low impact exercise has been shown to speed up the healing of the gut. Zinc speeds up the healing of the gut but do not take high dose if you do it can push the copper from your body. Low dose vitamin D3 speeds up healing of the gut but high dose will cause oxalates leading to kidney stone formation. It also will inhibit the vitamin D receptor resulting in bile flow and digestive enzymes becoming inhibited. If you are having trouble digesting cargbohydrates black seed oil increases the digestion of carbohydrates. Thyme increase brush border enzymes helping with motility and the farther break down of our foods .

We inherit our microbiome from our parents and they modulate our genes and metabolic pathways. So if a family lacks certain microbes or has too many of certain microbes they will be prone to certain illnesses. They falsely claim the illnesses are genetic to hid the harm the biotech, food industry and pharmaceutical industry are doing. Our diets can alter our gut microbiome. Often times we learn eating habits from our family and if a family has bad eating habits then we also will make ourselves prone to certain illnesses involved with either consuming too much of one things or not enough of another.

If a child is lacking certain microbes and they are given a probiotic containing those microbes they usually will get established very quickly but in adults it can take months for the body to recognize the new beneficial microbe as friend instead of foe. Not only that but we can also get microbes from those we socialize with so if we socialize with those who have bad gut microbes form bad eating habits we could also get their bad microbes and cause illness on ourselves. That most likely can work in reverse also. PQQ supports the transfer of energy in the cells and enhances new mitochondria formation. It is destroyed in the cooking process. So foods containing it should not be cooked above 100 degrees. It is found in Natto. Remember Natto is made from soy and most soy is GMO and contains high levels of glyphosate so make sure if you consume Natto it is organic. Parsley, green bell peppers, papaya which you also should make sure is organic, Tofu which is also made from soy so make sure it is organic, carrots, cabbage, Bananas, Oolong Tea, and Green Tea. PQQ is absorbed better if taken with a fatty acid. Minerals such as zinc, magnesium, Low dose vitamin C because high dose can increase oxidative stress, manganese and molybdenum also help. Our bodies do not need much molybdenum so do not take high doses and once the body has enough start taking it less often. I backed off taking it about three times a week. We need very little manganese so once levels are up I would stop taking it and only take it once in a while to make sure I maintain levels in the body. Argan oil is also a very potent anti-oxidant. Melatonin is a potent antioxidant and potent anti-inflammatory. When under excess oxidative stress methione can increase oxidative stress farther.

Gut making you drunk.


Leaky gut.













Inflammation is the cause of chronic illness and infection. To heal you must address inflammation.




Written by Lee Stevenson not edited though. To tired to edit it.


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

Inflammation does serve a purpose. It is involved in healing and immune response in the body. But excess inflammation can lead to chronic illness, immune dysfuction, and mental illness. Inflammation and nutrient deficiencies can lead to infection which cause and add to the inflammation and immune dysfunction. Imbalance in B or T cells can cause chronic inflammation, chronic inflammation can cause an imbalance in B and T cells. They are tightly connected to each other. I posted on autoimmunity with information on balancing the immune system. Reducing inflammation is also important to maintain homeostasis if we are chronically ill.



There are many types of cytokines in the body and many types of inflammation. If the cause is not addressed it can lead to chronic illness, autoimmunity and chronic pain. Inflammation disables the immune system and many metabolic pathways needed to heal. It can cause us to become prone to infection from microbes that are usually beneficial to the body. Inflammation can lead to cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer and death.






T Cell imbalance and inflammation are the commonality in autoimmune diseases this includes interstitial cystitis, arthritis, hardening of the arteries, obesity, lupus the list goes on and on. You must restore balance to the immune system and reduce inflammation to heal.


If you have sulfation issues or problems with lipid metabolism you cannot heal you need to get them straightened out. Most things I mention I have posted information on things that will help correct them. If we have issues with lipid metabolism then our bodies cannot use cholesterol effectively which effects the function of the brain, heart and digestion. This is a good video with information on their importance.


These are my summarized note on metabolic issues. They have to be addressed in order to achieve homeostasis. Many of these issues I posted more detail in other post.


I will mention things that heal the gut but I covered it in more detail in this blog post.


Many will take vitamin D3 to reduce inflammation but this can in some instances make things worse. Excess levels of vitamin D can cause high blood calcium levels which can result in oxalate formation. Those who have sarcoidosis which is an inflammatory disease that effects the organs have high levels of vitamin D3. I have seen many develop this when they have gotten and infection. This leads me to believe there are issue with the vitamin D receptor because problems with the vitamin D receptor will make us prone to illness. Those with sarcoidosis should avoid vitamin D until they get the issues causing the high vitamin D levels resolved. This is caused by upregulation of Cyp27b1 enzyme , the high levels of vitamin D inhibit the vitamin D receptor. This results in vitamin D binding to the Pregnane X receptor. This causes bile to be metabolized quicker reducing the amount of bile produced, this also causes issues with lipid metabolism resulting in lipid accumulation in the liver. Many of the symptoms caused by this are common in those with inflammatory bowel diseases. Make me believe there is a common tie. Maintaining our vitamin D levels is important but those with sarcoidosis probably should not take vitamin D3 but if they supplement it should be regular vitamin D like what is found in fish oil.




Vitamin D supplementation did not seem to have any benefits in those with sarcoidosis.




Vitamin A protects against vitamin D toxicity.



Leaky gut and inhibited bile production can lead to food intolerances. I posted on correcting these. Food intolerances cause inflammation and autoimmunity if not corrected.


We need to ask ourselves why food sensitivities, food intolerances , gluten intolerance, gliaden intolerance and many other problems that used to be rare are now very common? What is causing the epidemic?


Antibiotics have been linked to causing all those illnesses and you will see in this post how. Fluoroquinolone is one of the most dangerous antibiotic of all there are people who have been permanently disabled by fluroquinolones. The inflammation they cause to the body and damage is very very difficult to repair. If we do something reckless that cost people their lives we would go to jail. The pharmaceutical industry is frequently falsifying data, ghost writing studies and even paying people to lie about their products safety. The government has often times been caught colluding with the pharmaceutical industry to hide the harm they do. Why the double standard? Why is no one held accountable for the harm they do? Often times their drugs are what sets people up for chronic illness.


This is an example of a bad article. The advice may seem good but they mention spinach which if not cooked it will cause inflammatin because it is high oxalate. It needs to be boiled and the water dumped to reduce oxalates. It recommends fermented foods. Fermented foods are high histamine and if a person dealing with inflammation or high histamines eat fermented foods it will cause inflammation instead of reduce it. They also recommend high sulfur foods which normally would be very healthy but those with sulfation issues or gut dysbiosis who have high levels of sulfur digesting bacteria will become sicker and develop inflammation and high oxidative stress levels. I have posted on oxidative stress, and sulfation. Oxidative stress causes inflammation and can lead to cardiovascular disease and diabetes.



Increasing T regulatory cells helps with type 1 diabetes. Our gut microbiome regulate our T regulatory cell levels. I have posted on how to increase them. They regulate the health of our whole bodies even our bone health. I have posted throughout my blog on our microbiota and how each one effects our health. T regulatory cells prevent autoimmunity and excessive inflammation.



If we do not address our gut imbalance it can lead to B cell lymphoma. We need to increase the microbiome that reduce inflammation and oxidative stress. I posted on other post which ones accomplish that.


High resistin is blamed for causing diabetes type 2 and cardiovascular disease. Infection, leaky gut and oxidative stress can cause high resistin levels. It is usually an issue in the gut. It can also be caused by zinc deficiency. A person with zinc deficiencies will have a poor sense of taste or smell, a poor appetite, experience weight loss, whites spots on finger nails and night blindness. High resistin levels is actually a symptom not the cause but just like most allopathic medicine they view the symptom as the cause. Resistin helps protect the body from endotoxins. High levels indicate leaky gut or infection. Zinc deficiency also causes high TH17 levels which is common in lupus and other autoimmune diseases. High levels of endotoxins damage the brain.





Endotoxemia which can be caused by leaky gut or infection which causes high resistin levels. This leads to insulin resistance.



Endotoxins cause the blood brain barrier to become porous.


High endotoxins cause the body to release inflammasomes which activate Gasdermin. Gasdermin causes pyropoptoses. Instead of the cell dying in the normal way through apotosis which give the body a chance to clear the debris out with pyropoptose the cell erupts spewing material out. If this occurs enough times the body cannot keep up with the process of cleaning debris out and metabolic pathways can become blocked and it can add to the inflammation and toxic burden in the body. It is believed this occurs to control infection. This shows why it is important to heal leaky gut and to get our lipopolysaccharide levels down and reduce inflammasomes. Stimulating autophagy helps reduce inflammasomes. Mitochondrial dysfunction and damage can also activate inflammasome so glyphosate and many drugs especially fluorquinolones can cause this to occur. Arglabia found in species of artemisia inhibit inflammasomes. Resveratrol inhibits inflammasomes. Activating CB2 receptor reduces inflammasomes. I posted on plants that contain cannabinoids that activate CB2.





Since resistin protects us and if you read my post on cholesterol you will see it also protects us, what does allopathic medicine do. They see the resistin as something that needs reduced which would further add to the health problems but that is ok they will find a drug to treat those symptoms also. Allopathic medicine is not about treating the cause but about treating the symptoms. Here is an example here. Resistin protects from the damage of endotoxins and also from the damage statins do. Their solution try to find a way to reduce resistin. Oh great just what a person needs even more health problems.


Nutrient deficiencies can cause oxidative stress and inflammation.



There are many things that cause inflammation and metabolic issues. This results in mold sensitivity. If you are sensitive to mold it is a symptom not the cause. Most mold the body can detox easily until something goes wrong. There are molds that are dangerous but you would have to breath large quantities of them in directly. The white mold that grows on rotting wood that looks like a spider web is one of those molds. Glucuronidation and sulfation are not mentioned in this article but if they are inhibited they also can cause a person to be sensitive to mold. We have to ask ourselves people have lived around mold for centuries and it did not cause problems before. What has changed? Our environment and food is now toxic. Vaccinations damage the body. Our bodies are being pushed to the max when it comes to detoxing.



In the U.S. over farming and the use of glyphosate has cause nutrient deficiencies. Over farming depletes minerals from the soils. Glyphosate chelates minerals from the soil and is high in our food supply and chelates minerals from our bodies and kill many of our beneficial microbes in our gut. Our microbes produce some of the vitamins we need especially the B vitamins. Heavy antibiotic use can cause us to become deficient in B vitamins from the loss of our microbiome that produce the B vitamins for us. They have started fortifying our food to compensate for the loss of nutrients. The problem is they use a type of iron that the body cannot easily use, many have toxic levels of iron in their bodies now which causes excess oxidative stress and inflammation. They also fortify our food with folic acid which is man made and toxic to the body. Folate is natural but many do not know the difference including many medical professionals. I have even seen research papers incorrectly interchange the use the words folate and folic acid. High levels of folic acid causes cancer and damages the brain. High levels of folate the natural vitamin prevents cancer and protects the brain. Knotgrass increase lipocalin 2 which helps to restore iron homeostasis. Lactoferrin also helps restore iron homeostasis. Lipocalin can be low in malabsorption but is high during infection.



Processed sugar has been found to cause inflammation that can lead to obesity and heart disease. Fructose is much worse then sugar. But when I looked at studies on those products in their natural forms they did not have ill effects. So apparently our bodies were not meant to have them in purified forms. It doesn’t help that most sugar and fructose is made from GMOs and can contain glyphosate.


GMOs alone even without glyphosate has been found to cause gut inflammation.



Our gut microbiota modulate our immune system and are important for the health of all organs including our brain. I have covered it in more detail in other blog post. It is very important to figure out which ones we are lacking and replace them.


The cannabinoid system is important in maintaining our bodies health. Our gut microbiome modulate it. There are many plants that contain them I have posted on cannabinoids.


The omega 3 to omega 6 ratio can effect our cannabinoid system. In the U.S. we consume to much Omega 6 . When Omega 6 levels become higher then Omega 3 levels it can have a negative impact on the cannabinoid system.


This is good information on Omega 3 oil.


Many spices reduce oxidative stress and when cooked with they reduce toxins produced during cooking. This helps prevent inflammation.




If the NRF2 pathway is blocked or over activated it can lead to excess oxidative stress. I discuss it in my post on oxidative stress. Activating it can reduce oxidative stress but we do not want to over activate it.


Mental stresss makes the gut more permeable. This can lead to endotoxemia resembling an infection.This leads to chronic inflammation.


Many spices help reduce oxidative stress and inflammation.



Using spices when we cook helps prevent the toxins that can be produced while cooking.


Our food has become very toxic now days if you read my post on GMOs and what they do to the body it is unbelievable they let them feed us those things. Not only that but the additives they put in foods are toxic to our bodies. Something as simple as Ramen noodles are very bad for our health.


Too many oxalates can cause chronic illness. High oxalates can irritate the bladder and run the liver, kidneys, gallbladder and cause urinary and vaginal irritation.




Symptoms of high oxalates.


Oxalates can also cause us to become sensitive to phenols the very nutrients we need to reduce inflammation will now make us ill. They inhibit sulfation which can cause phenols to build up in our bodies. Glyphosate, mercury and vaccine injury can also cause inhibited sulfation. I have posted on correcting sulfation.


To add insult to injury oxalates can cause kidney stones and gallstones one their own. They also cause inflammation which can inhibited bile flow and cause problems in the gallbladder which can lead to gall stones. Bile is involved in cholesterol homeostasis so when it because inhibited cholesterol and fats in the body become dis-regulated. When bile is inhibited it breaks the balance of the gut up and will cause an imbalance in our gut bacteria leading to dysbiosis or inflammatory bowel diseases.


Vasoactive intestinal peptide is usually low in those who have malabsorption issues from inflammatory bowel. When low a person will have difficulty gaining weight.


Hypoxia can reduce the symptoms of inflammatory bowel diseases.


When lipids become dis-regulated it can cause an increase in eicosanoids which are inflammatory. When this happens healthy oils like Omega 3s become inflammatory and Omega 6 will cause inflammation. So we must address metabolic issues that will interfere with the proper metabolism of fats to reap the benefits of fats. Cod liver oil works very good for reduing eicosanoid type inflammation. I get cod liver oil that has lemon juice which will keep it from oxidizing. Cod liver oil is also good for the brain.





Those with inflammatory bowel should avoid saturated fat until they heal. When we have systematic inflammation we need to adjust our diets. Medium chain fatty acids work best when we have inflammatory bowel issues or malabsorption issues.



A mistake many make when they have chronic inflammation is they will take high dose vitamin C which increases inflammation when taken at high doses. Also high dose vitamin C causes anemia because it breaks red blood cells down and depletes certain minerals from the body.


Luteolin helps with inflammatory diseases. It has been shown to prevent diabetes and heart disease. It is high in cooked tomato skin. It is also found in thyme, watercress, citrus fruits, celery, green peppers, and chamomille tea. It is one of the most potent anti-inflammatory and is very potent at reducing oxidative stress.





This is a list of foods high in luteolin.



If inflammation is not addressed it will lead to chronic fatigue syndrome.




I have posted on resolving issues with fat metabolism. Fat is very important for protection from inflammation and infection.



This is a list of spices that reduce inflammation. Out of all of them I feel celery, sage, oregano oil and vanilla helped me the most.


Liver X receptor regulates cholesterol homeostasis which is very important in the regulation of inflammation and preventing infection.



Excess NOD2 causes inflammation and can damage the renal system. Infection, and leaky gut can cause high NOD2 levels. This increases inflammation in the intestinal tract leading to inflammatory bowel. Our gut bacteria modulate NOD2. NOD2 recognizes our gut microbiome and will not harm it. Excess inflammation can interfere with toll like receptors which can prevent NOD2 from being able to recognize our good gut microbiome. There are gut microbiome that stimulate IL-12 a loss of these microbiome causes a loss of the ability for NOD2 to recognize our good microbiome. Many metabolic issues can interfere with the proper function of NOD.






Infection can inhibit NOD2 especially mycoplasma infection.



I have posted on Heat Shock Protein 70. HSP70 stabilizes NOD2.


HSP is modulated by diet and our gut microbiota.


Excess inflammation and excess lipopolysaccharide can inhibit NcoR and SMRT which are the checkpoints for appropriate inflammatory and anti-inflammatory response. I have posted on edotoxemia it is very important to get endotoxins levels down.


There are many causes of excess inflammation . The major ones now days is vaccinations and farm chemicals in our foods, especially glyphosate, bt toxins found in GMOs also cause inflammation.

Many illnesses have been linked to inflammation inflammatory bowel diseases, autoimmune diseases, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and many metabolic diseases. Many things that contain the OspA cause inflammation and the OspA disables the immune system. The only way the body can remove the OspA proteins is through autophagy, using and the Heat Shock Protein 70. Inflammation can inhibit those. Many vaccines contain the OspA along with some mycoplasmas, tick born illnesses, EBV and some molds contain it.



Lupus is caused by a type of inflammation. Ironic it is caused by the same type of inflammation that vaccinations and glyphosate cause. Arthritis has been linked to vaccinations.



Arthritis is an autoimmune disorder, vaccines cause autoimmunity awful coincidence. Vaccinations can cause a B cell imbalance that alters our gut microbiome, so can antibiotics and glyphosate.


A list of foods that may help with arthritis.


This is a list of herbs that help with arthritis and why they work. Green Tea inhibits many inflammatory cytokine but should be used in moderation. Drinking it in excess can damage the liver. Curcumin reduces many types of inflammatory cytokines but should be used in moderation it chelates iron and can cause anemia. Resveratrol found in grape skins, wine and grape seed extract reduce many types of inflammatory cytokines but those with hepatitis have to be careful it can activate hepatitis.


Paeonia helps with arthritis.


Thungergod vine helps with many forms of inflammatory illnesses but can irritate the stomach and have effects on hormones in the body.


Inulin and oligofructose reduces many types of inflammation by increasing bifidobacteria. Those with dysbiosis have to ease into things like this and slowly increase intake as their gut microbiome increase that digest this type of fiber. It takes about 3 months for most types of gut microbes to get fully established. If our gut bacteria are not established then we can get severe bloating and gas from consuming too much. Also in order to get our gut bacteria balanced we need a variety of foods in order to get them balanced. Over consumption of inulin and oligofrutose can also cause dysbiosis by increasing levels of inulin and oligofructose microbes to high causing an imbalance in our microbiome. An imbalance in our gut microbiome causes allergies, inflammation, food intolerances, and autoimmunity.


I have listed in other blog post on the microbiome that protect us from inflammation, from autoimmunity and from infection. They also modulate our genes and keep our organs throughout the body healthy and communicate with various parts of the body and even teach the immune system how to fight infection.

Notice vaccines increase inflammatory cytokines for quite some time.


Those with inflammatory bowel diseases are usually low in interleukin 10 and T regulatory cells. I have posted which gut microbes increase those.



An imbalance in our gut microbiome cause metabolic issues which lead to inflammatory diseases. I have posted on how to balance the gut microbiome.



Statins also cause diabetes by there inflammatory effects on the body.


Good information for reducing intestinal inflammation. I have a list of probiotics on one of my post that says which microbes reduce inflammation. Many sites are not accurate and some strains they mention actually increase inflammation.


This is a very good article explaining the inflammatory process when we have an infection.


Heart disease is caused by endothelial dysfunction which is a result of excess oxidative stress, toxins, excess inflammation and even poor lifestyle choices.



Inflammation and diabetes.


Inflammation and pain.



Infection indicates a health problem. Usually a nutrient deficiency. Infection can cause chronic inflammton.


Vaccinations cause systematic inflammation which causes neurological damage.




Since we know vaccinations cause inflammation that can damage the brain imagine what is happening to an infant when an expecting mother gets vaccinated.


Brain inflammation has been linked to most mental diseases including alzheimer’s. Mugwort, coconut oil and astaxanthin have been shown to help with brain inflammation. They also stimulate brain repair.


When chronic inflammation persist it can make the brain prone to infection. Lyme has been known to form cyst in the body and can damage the brain by forming cyst on it. Lyme causes systematic inflammation it is part of it’s tactic for evading the immune system.


Inflammation causes high glutamate levels which will cause restless leg syndrome and difficulty sleeping. When glutamate levels get too high it will feel like your skull is going to split in half. To restore normal glutamate levels we must address the metabolic issues causing it and reduce inflammatin.


If inflammation persist it can effect enzymes in the body leading to neurological damage.


Skin inflammation is usually a sign of high TH17 levels. I have posted on autoimmunity and it should cover information concerning high TH17 levels.



Lipoxins are very important for reducing inflammation so it is very important to support their function. Lipoxins cannot remove inflammation until the cause of the inflammation has been removed. If we have metabolic issues or issues in fat metabolism the body cannot produce lipoxins which will increase inflammation. Lions Mane mushroom increases lipoxin. Low lipoxin levels cause asthma and allergies. Consuming Omega 3 and medium chain fatty acids increases lipoxins.







There are many naturals that help with inflammation but they have to be geared towards the type of inflammation and also the cause. For example Golden Rod helps with swelling in the feet and legs and high blood pressure. Golden Rod also has antispasmodic effects which also helps with bladder and muscle pain. It also has antimicrobial effects. It also helps reduce many of the inflammatory markers found in interstitial cystitis. There are a variety of species but they are mostly chemically very similar.




Stimulating the vagus nerve helps to reduce inflammation and pain.the health of the vagus nerve is very important it can even effect our heart and contribute to obesity and fatty liver disease.







Cholesterol is needed to prevent inflammation.


Pau D Arco is an all around amazing herb. It fights candida, inflammation, mycoplasma you name it. It even helps heal stomach ulcers.


Proteolytic enzymes help break down food and reduce inflammation, they help the gut heal. There are plant sources for those not producing them.


5-Lox inhibitors help with illnesses caused by high eicosanoids like asthma and allergies. Caffeic acid inhibits 5-Lox, it can be found in coffee, thyme, basil, cinnamon, star anise, red wine, black chokeberry, barley, rye and apricots. Lichen inhibits 5-lox with cetetia monachrom being the most potent. Tithonia Diversifolia and Viguiera Robust inhibit 5-Lox and Cox-1 which would help with those who have systematic inflammation.

If excess oxidative stress and inflammation and the things causing them are not addressed it leads to neurological damage. Vaccinations, glyphosate and other farm chemicals that are high in our food supply cause systematic inflammation. Heavy metal also causes systematic inflammation. I have posted on detoxing which helps reduce their effects.


One thing found to be common in obesity is low grade inflammation.


Vaccine inserts will state that brain inflammation is a side effect of the vaccine. They no longer call it autism because vaccines cause many types of brain injury so they us a blanket term encephalopathy to cover a variety of brain injuries vaccinations cause. Tylenol also causes brain inflammation and liver damage because it depletes glutathione so it enhances the inflammatory effects of vaccines. Two things all with autism have in common are brain inflammation (encephalopathy) and autoimmunity. Both things vaccinations and glyphosate have been shown to cause.






Many do not realize that their chronic fatigue (ASIA syndrome), lupus or allergies are actually vaccine injury because the CDC says that only 10% of vaccine injuries get reported but many medical professionals claim that number is much lower. I have posted on identifying vaccine injury because it is usually subtle or brushed of by the medical community. It is up to the parent of the injured child to report vaccine injury or the person who is injured. If you do not keep accurate medical history and medical journals your chances of being compensated for vaccine injury or death is very slim.


N-acetylcysteine helps with damage from tylenol. High stress and high cortisol levels also have a negative impact on BHMT enzymes.



Encephalitis and autism is the same thing. They relabeled autism encephalopathy in order to cover a broader spectrum of brain injuries caused by vaccines and farm chemicals.


Many vaccines contain aluminum which is known to be toxic to the body and it is very difficult for the body to remove it especially once it enters the brain. It has been linked to autism.





If the brain inflammation persist long enough it can result in mental disorders.



When mast cells degranulate they release histamines. Excess histamines cause inflammation. If the immune system is not balanced it could lead into mastocytosis or mast cell activation syndrome. High mast cell levels cause allergies, inflammation, asthma and man other illnesses. We need mast cells to clean up the body but over expression can cause illness.







Mast cells are needed for health but excess and excess degranulation can damage nerves.


Histamines compromise the blood brain barrier causing the brain to become even more inflamed. It also leaves the brain open to toxins and infection.


Some may be helped with a low histamine diet. I have posted on autoimmunity and some tips for some things that will help.


This is why high homocysteine levels lead to inflammatory diseases , it has also been linked to IBD. Often times it is nutrient deficiencies that causes high homocysteine levels. Eating more raw fruit, vegetables and leafy greens can help reduce high homocysteine levels. Also if a person is deficient in B12 which is produced by our gut microbiome and B6 they will develop high homocysteine levels. High homocysteine levels can lead to cardiovascular disease, insulin resistance, excess oxidative stress., issues with glutamate because it acts on the NMDA receptor, it can cause the blood brain barrier to become leaky, and can lead to depression. It can cause hoshimoto’s disease, arthritis, psoriasis, lupus which all indicate high TH17 levels. High homocysteine causes headaches, inflammation in the gums and mouth. Www.selfhacked.com is one of the most accurate websites I have found when it comes to healing and health related information.





I am not big on drugs because the pharmaceutical industry and even our own government has shown they can not be trusted when it comes to drug safety. They have often times caused many death from marketing drugs that they falsely claimed to research for safety and the government has many times been caught colluding with them to hide the harm being done. But Ebselem is one drug I have seen many independent studies showing it’s effectiveness at reducing oxidative stress, inflammatory disease and reversing autoimmunity. Unfortunately most governments only allow it to be prescribed to those who are mentally ill.


Vaccinations, heavy metals, stress, toxins, farm chemicals in our food, gut dysbiosis, glyphosate and glufonisate increases zonulin levels which causes leaky gut. This results in autoimmunity, allergies and food intolerances which leads to systematic inflammation. There are test that can help identify leaky gut. It is not always obvious when someone has leaky gut. High zonulin levels also cause interstitial cystitis and a leaky blood brain barrier.





high zonulin levels have been linked to leaky gut.


Almost all chronic illness can be linked to our gut microbiome.


Many with inflammatory bowel diseases and chronic illness have been shown to be deficient in Clostridium Leptum. Has been shown to help with asthma and allergies.


Vitamin B6 helps reduces brain inflammation. Some who are not converting B6 may have to use the bioavailable form P5P.


Disruption of lysosomes can lead to inflammatory disease. I have posted on things that may help with lysosomal issues.


Poshpolipase A2 activates during infection. Citroline helps reduce inflammation caused by PLA2. It should not be used often because the body recycles it and if we get too much it can start damaging the liver.


Our Liver X Receptor is important for homeostasis of the immunes system and in preventing inflammation.


Yarrow reduces inflammation in the digestive tract. It also give energy without the side effects of caffeine. It also helps with asthma.


There are many toxins in our food and enviroment that cause inflammation. If we do not detox them and leave the inflammation continue then it can lead to autoimmunity and cancer. Oxidative stress causes inflammation so the source of the oxidative stress needs address, treating the inflammation would only be treating the symptoms. Cancer is a symptom of illness but not the cause, it is a symptom of an underlying illness. I have also posted on cancer in more detail.





Tea tree oil works great for reducing histamines, and substance P in the skin. It reduces inflammation and has great disinfectant properties. It is too strong to use straight. I found adding about 5 drops to 8 ounces of Jojoba oil worked great. Jojoba oil stimulates hair growth and reduces inflammation. It also will disinfect , it even kills fungus.


Infection causes inflammation, if systematic inflammation is not addressed it can lead to interstitial cystitis. It is very difficult to recover from. I am in remission with no help from allopathic medicine they just made things worse. They will try and prescribe you psych meds and tell you it is in your head like they do with Lyme disease. There are two things I have seen common in the many types of interstitial cystitis. Leaky gut or digestive issues and high inflammatory cytokines. High substance P levels have been found in some types of asthma , autoimmunity and all with interstitial cystitis have high substance P levels. I have posted on substance P. It is a sign of leaky gut or gut dysbiosis.



Often times with IC it is hormone imbalance that causes the inflammation.


Infection causes issues with tryptophan this can lead to both malabsorption and interstitial cystitis. I have seen people go years with undetected infections because it was tick born illness and they always over look it. As a matter of fact some studies claim up to 80% of those with interstitial cystitis may have tick born illness that is going undetected. Tick born illness is not what it should be called though because most illnesses ticks transmit can be transmitted by biting insects including Lyme disease. When this happens a person may become sicker when increasing tryptophan levels in their bodies. They must address the cause first. I have posted on healing interstitial cystitis.



Our adrenaline levels can effect our bodies causing inflammation and autoimmunity. Adaptogens like suma root or maca root usually help with that.



If you do not have porphyria then Omega 3 fatty acids will reduce inflammation in the bladder. If you have porphyria, which pyrrole issues are some of the first symptoms then all oils except medium chain fatty acids will cause you inflammation. Also if your Omega 6 levels get higher then Omega 3 then instead of reducing inflammation Omega 6 will cause inflammation.


Transfats cause inflammation and can lead to cardiovascular disease. I have posted on the myths about fat.



There are a lot of farm chemicals in our food. PON1 is needed to detox them. Inflammation inhibits PON1. Reducing inflammation will help with detoxing. Sumac helps to stimulate PON1. Dandelion stimulates DIG1 which detoxes the body. Alternating between them should help to detox.


Fats which are needed by almost all cells of the body can make inflammation worse if a person has pyrrole issues. If a person has pyrrole issues it is a symptom of a bigger problem porphyria. They will get ill from consuming oils. Medium chain fatty acids is all they should consume until they have addressed it. I have posted on porphyria.


It is very important to address issues with fat metabolism. Omega 3s are needed to reduce inflammation.


Milk thistle is one of the best for reducing inflammation and detoxing. It inhibits many inflammatory pathways.


Thiocyanate is used by the bodies antioxidant system. A deficiency causes cause cystic fibrosis. Excess can cause hypothyroidism so should be avoided by those who have hypothyroidism. It also helps with sickle cell anemia.

It is found in cassava, legumes, beans, grains, many root vegetables.





St. Johnswort reduces inflammation and oxidative stress. It has a cannabinoid in it that that causes relaxation. The best way I know how to describe it is that it gives you that feeling you get when you are fighting sleep as a child and you get giggly.


Chlorophyll helped me a lot. It is high in copper so should only be used a few times a week , I used it about three times a week. It is also a good source of magnesium and increases oxygen levels in the blood.


If a person gets mast cell activation syndrome from Lyme there are a number of things people have tried. Supplements worked best for me. I have covered this in my autoimmunity post. When mast cells degranulate they cause high histamines which cause inflammation. It is very important to get them under control and restore homeostasis. We need some histamines to fight infection and for digestion so we do not want to over do it.



When I was very ill my skin started to lose it’s color . When it is low the immune system will become imbalanced and we will develop inflammation throughout the body. On the other end of the scale those who have chronic fatigue syndrome have excess a-MSH. If levels are high a person will not have an appetite.



Nitric Oxide can be beneficial or cause inflammation. Under excess oxidative stress it can become depleted causing high blood pressure or over produced during infection causing low blood pressure. I have posted on nitrositive stress.


Butyric Acid is great for reducing inflammation throughout the body including the brain. It also helps protect and heal the brain. It is found in butter and ghee, also some of our gut microbiome produce it. If we lose our gut microbiota that produce butyric acid we can develop inflammatory bowel or ulcerative colitis.



Also our gut microbiota communicate with our brain , a deficiency in certain microbiota could lead to mental illness.


If we have leaky gut or tick born illness we can develop high substance P levels. This can cause cell build up in various areas of the body and can block the renal system , blood flow, it can cause brain swelling. When levels get high the skin will burn especially in the scalp and down the spin. The burning with increase at night and can also itch. Substance P levels increase at night. Substance P is used by the body to stimulate healing in the body. Excess substance P can cause excess bone marrow to be produced. I have posted on how to reduce it. When it gets very high brown spots may develop around the hair follicles. Nutrient deficiencies can also cause high substance P levels especially magnesium. This is also why many have leaky gut now days because high substance P levels cause leaky gut. Over farming and the use of glyphosate has caused many to become deficient in magnesium. If high substance P levels are not addressed it can lead to pancreatic damage and even cancer. If substance P levels get high enough it can feel like bugs crawling under and on the skin, I experienced that. I also experienced butt itching which drove me almost to the point of madness.







Self heal helps reduce inflammation, helps balance the immune system and fights viruses. It also reduces oxidative stress.



Since cardiovascular disease is from inflammation and oxidative stress self heal heps protect the heart by reducing inflammation and oxidative stress.


Phloretin found in apple leaves is great for reducing inflammation and balancing the immune system.


Grape seed extract is great for inflammation it reduces many types of inflammatory cytokines including bradykins. It reduces TMAO which causes inflammation. It also helps normalize our gut microbiome. It prevents thrombosis and protects the heart. It helps heal neurological damage. Those who have hepatitis may not be able to use it. It contains resveratrol which can activate hepatitis. It contains resveratrol which reduces the inflammatory cytokines that cause neurological damage and leaky gut.



Resveratrol helps with obesity by reducing the inflammation that causes it. It is also an Nrf2 activator so reduces oxidative stress. Keep in mind we do not want to reduce oxidative stress too low because we need it to produce enzymes, protect us from infection and toxins and cancer. Homeostasis should always be the goal. To little inflammation or oxidative stress can cause cancer, to much can also cause cancer we need to balance things out.



Serrapeptase is an enzyme that silk worms use to escape their cocoon. It has great anti-inflammatory properties. It breaks down scar tissue in the body and can break down cyst formed by infection. It should only be used in low doses. High doses can also start breaking down tissue in the body good tissue in the body , do not take in high doses. It also breaks down biofilms.


I have never tried chrysanthemum but it is supposed to reduce inflammation and protect from renal injury.


Red gensing has a lot of health benefits but those with high blood pressure should not use it. It is a stimulant.


Pau D Arco contains B-lapchone which has been found to fight many types of cancer. It has been found to protect the renal system and reduces inflammation and oxidative stress. Fights many pathogens including mycoplasma. It improves NAD+/NADH ratio which is usually a problem in inflammatory bowel diseases.



Uncaria tomentosa is cat’s claw. There are other herbs called cat’s claw but this is the only one that has well researched health benefits. It helps reduce inflammation, strengthens the immune system and has been shown to help with asthma.


Hesperidin is great for healing, reducing inflammation and reducing histamines. It is also a helicase inhibitor so helps fight viruses. It is found mostly in the white parts of citrus fruits and peppermint.



Palmitoylethanolamide helps with many types of chronic illness. It helps keep the cannabinoid system healthy. It is involved with cellular repair, nerve repair and reduces inflammation. It prevents cardiovascular disease and protects from inflammatory bowel diseases. It helps with mast cell activation syndrome. It is found in eggs and peanuts.








Those with high dopamine or serotonin levels may want to avoid taking PEA it increases them.



Melatonin is an amazing antioxidant with many amazing benefits. Usually I don’t like taking something the body can make itself because it can ruin the bodies ability to produce it but melatonin does not do that. It is great for chronic illness, sleep problems and autoimmunity. It reduces inflammation and oxidative stress.




This is one of those things I thought was crazy is earth grounding. So I look for research to show people who believe that had to be crazy. Turns out earth grounding resets the bodies voltage back to what it should be. Toxins and EMFs change our bodies voltage which causes inflammation. Earth grounding reduces inflammation.


Nobiletin restores cellular autophagy which is the cells way of cleaning itself out and repairing. It is also how the cells protect themselves form infection. It reduces inflammation , helps with fatty liver and diabetes. It should be used in moderation it is a very potent nutrient. It is found in the skins of orange peels. Other citrus fruits have similar phytochemicals that have very similar effects. It even helps with acne. It even helps with learning impairments. Autophagy is also a very important part of the immune system and helps protect the cells from infection.






Polysaccharides in musthrooms are great for balancing our gut microbiome and reducing inflammation. They also improve immune function.


Marshmallow root has amazing healing properties it is great for balancing the immune system, reducing inflammation, amazing for healing the gut. Most plants in the mallow family contain those properties.


Bay leaves have amazing benefits and I craved them when I was ill , they seemed to help with my nausea. My dad always told me not to use it too often. I have not had a chance to look at toxicity studies on it.


Japanese honeysuckle reduces inflammation and histamines. It also stimulates repair of the heart and reduces thrombosis. Honey suckle also fights many types of infection from mycoplasma to viral.





Plantain herb is another herb with amazing healing properties. It contains baicalein which is what makes scutellaria mare effective. It kills many types of infection including gangrene. It reduces Cox-1 and Lox which would help with allergies and interstitial cystitis. It also helps with renal damage.




Mugwort is another amazing plant. It helps heal the renal system and brain , fights many pathogens including mycoplasma. It reduces inflammation and is 1000 as potent against cancer then chemotherapy. Mugwort increases the bodies antioxidants and prevents heart disease.



Scutellaria is high in baicalein which prevents thrombosis, reduces inflammation and balances the immune system. There are two types usually sold on the market american and chinese. Amercan is higher in baicalein. I used american when I was sickest and because it is so potent the sudden restored blood flow to my legs, hands, and brain caused a lot of problems. I experienced headaches from the barin starting to heal, I experienced muscle spasms in my legs and feet and burning pain from the nerves and muscles waking up. I experienced burning in my hands. I wold suggest using chinese which would not cause such sudden healing.


Frankinsense is another super herb. It is from the sap of 5 different spcies of Boswellia. Their sap has been found to help with asthma, inflammation, very good at fighting infection, heals leaky gut and helps with gut dysbiosis. Has been found to help with peristalisis (when the gut is paralyzed. Has been found to fight cancer. The essential oil has been shown to fight skin cancer and reduce scars on the skin. It has been shown to prevent oral infections. The list of benefits goes on and on.


If leaky gut is not corrected it can lead to liver and kidney disease. Leaky gut is not always obvious it usually presents as food intolerances and the number of food intolerances will increase the worse it gets.


Cox-2 inhibitors are good for healing the gut and bladder. Cox-2 inhibitors help with some types of asthma and interstitial cystitis. Things that inhbit iNOS would help with interstitial cystitis. They act similar to NSAIDs without the side effects. Remember you do not want to inhibit COX-2 For too long because we need it for healing, once homeostasis is reach it would be a good idea to just take some once in a while. Natural salicitic acid found in willow bark works as well as NSAIDs if a person has sulfation issues it can make them ill, it can also irritate the stomach if over consumed. Myrtus Communis also reduces pain as well as NSAIDs but I have not found any toxicity studies on it. Myrtus communis does work very well for healing the gut. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29303617 . But does not inhibit Cox-2. Cox-2 inhibitors also help heal the gallbladder.

Lysolecithin causes bladder inflammation. Lysolecithin causes systematic inflammation interstitial cystitis, neurological damage and has been implicated as a causative factor in MS. It is needed for autophagy and low levels can cause hardening of the arteries. Lysolecithin is in high amounts in processed foods and enzyme-modified foods. It is also known as Lysophosphatidylcholine. It is also released from cells during inflammation. It can cause bile blockage. The problem is all processed foods are very high in it which raises our bodies levels too high. lysoPC in high amounts damages the mucus membrane of the gut, combined with alcohol it is much worse. Cigarette smoking also causes damage by rasing LP-PLA2 which increases oxidative stress and lysoPC. I cannot find the link to the study but it causes interstitial cystitis through the nerve damage it causes.



Mediterranean Sage reduces COX-2, and iNOS. It also reduces oxidation of lipids.









Alterations in our gut microbiome can contribute to muscular dystrophy.


Curcimin inhibits COX-2 but if used for too long it can make you anemic so should be pulsed and not used daily. Thunder God Vine reduces COX-2 without inhibiting it’s effects but it can have effects on our hormones if taken for too long. Resveratrol and Querciten inhibit COX-2 with many beneficial effects. Green Tea inhibits COX-2 but over consumption can damage the liver. All things should be done in moderation and homeostasis should be the goal.


Bulgleweed in the mint family inhibits COX-2,

Many of the cornus (dogwood) species the berries reduce inflammatory cytokines and inbibits COX-2,

Groundcone reduces TNF-a, iNOS and COX-2,

Catalpa helps with colitis, inhibits many inflammatory cytokines and COX-2.

Cape Jasmine heals the retina by improving oxygen levels in tissues. It inhibits iNOS and Cox-2. Yellow gentian produces one of the most bitter substances known. Bitter substances stimulate bile. It helps normalize the NMDA receptor which can be overstimulated by metabolic issues causing head aches and anxiety.

Cox-2 is a precursor to prostaglandin E2, mock privet leaves inhibit PGE2.

Rehmannia root should not be taken if the immune system is over activated for example with mast cell activation because it stimulates the immune system. Rehmannia leaves inhibit blood clotting. Rehmannia helps prevent depression and helps with blood brain barrier repair by improving production of tight junction proteins which would also help heal the gut.

Foutainbush also known as firecracker plant reduces inflammation and oxidative stress, it fight infections like malaria. It depresses the central nervous system which improves sleep.

Water figwort inhibits inflammatory cytokines, especially the ones that cause skin inflammation. Desert figwort has similar properties but has a little more potent inflammatory inhibiting effects. Ironwort also known as mountain tea inhibits inflammation, reduces oxidative stress and helps heal the gut. It inhibits Lipoxygenase.

Blue snakeweed reduces anxiety through the GABA and opioid receptors and enhances sleep. It also reduces pain. It fight malaria. It also has potent anti-inflammatory effects and helps heal the gut.

Lilac flowers and bark reduces hydrogen peroxide levels in the body, it reduces lipid peroxidation, and reduces Nitric Oxide levels in those with excess Nitric oxide. In other words it reduces oxidative stress. It also reduces TNF-a , NFK-B and IL-6 and other inflammatory cytokines. It also helps with diabetes. It also stimulates IL-10 which is usually inhibited by the OspA protein in vaccines and some infections like Lyme. It also contains rutin which fights infection.

Water speedwell is in the plantain family. It reduces oxidative stress and reduces inflammatory cytokines stimulated by endotoxins.

Vitex inhibits Cox-2

Liverwort is very effective against fungus even nail and skin fungus. It is anti-inflammatory but contains a cannabinoid that is very potent so should be used in moderation.


Nutmeg inhibts COX-2 and has a cannabinoid that has narcotic like effects. It should not be used in high doses. In high doses it can cause seizures and even death. It has hepaprotective, antiseptic, memory enhancing and reduces inflammation.



Chicory prevents biofilms, helps normalize gut microbiota, it is a bitter herb so stimulates bile production, it fights many infections including malaria and helps fight parasites. It reduces inflammation and is hepaprotective. Helps heal the gut. It has mild sedative effects and reduces pain. It reduces oxidative stress.


Speedwell reduces inflammation by inhibiting Cox-2 and TNF-a. Has strong antioxidant and antimicrobial properties. It also helps with mast cell issues.




Feverfew is great for reducing pain and inflammation. It also helps fight the flu and colds. But if taken for too long a person can become addicted. When they stop taking it they will have toxic withdrawal syndrome and will feel ill and will get a very severe headache.


Berberine protects the brain, renal system, helps balance the immune system. Kills just about all types of infection including mycoplasma. Berberine improves insulin sensitivity, and prevents cardiovascular disease. It also improves lipid metabolism which would help those with pyrrole issues, it also reduces inflammation and oxidative stress. It is found in berberis, oregongrape, amur cork, and california poppy. California poppy also has pain killing properties.





This is a more detail description of what causes pyrrole issues. Pretty much all heck breaks loose.


This one surprised me. I have only seen studies on the bark and roots of paeonia flowers but the health benefits have been amazing, helps with diabetes, heart disease and even helps balance the immune system. It reduces inflammation, oxidative stress and helps normalize the adrenal hormones. It even inhibits cancer growth. It even reduces brain inflammation. It reduces oxalates which are very damaging to the body. It improves gut motility which would help those who have digestive disorders that causes constipation. It also helps prevent biliary blockage which would cause inhibited bile production.









If inflammation is not addressed it can lead to bone loss.


Magnolia has a cannabinoid that reduces pain and inflammation, it also helps with inflammatory bowel issues. It stimulates bone growth, and reduces depression by it’s actions on the GABA receptor it also prevents glutamate build up by increasing the hormone that converts glutamate to GABA, It reduces inflammation by inhibition of PPARy and many of the cytokines found in inflammatory bowel diseases. It has been show to be effective against many metabolic disorders. It inhibits blood clotting it is very effective against cancer, it has been know to fight forms of cancer that are drug resistant. Magnolia reduces oxidative stress and helps restore proper lipid function in the body. It has been shown to fight fungus, Hepatitis C and HIV. It helps with hypertension and is and ACE inhibitor. Most species of magnolia are chemically similar.








Flax seed has a cannabinoid similar to thc. It has anti-inflammatory effects, reduces histamines, reduces pain, helps heal the gut. It is high in Omega 3 fatty acids. Flax seed must be crushed because humans cannot digest that has not been crushed. Flax seed is also high in mucilage so helps heal the gut. It balances our gut microbiome. It reduces oxidative stress. It has been found to heal the kidneys and reduce the risk for cardiovascular disease. It helps with diabetes and normalizes blood sugar levels.It has been shown to restore leptin sensitivity which would prevent obesity. It improves glucose tolerance and gut motility. Flax seed is high in arginine which reduces blood pressure.




Leptin levels increase during infection and is known to be high in those suffering from sepsis. Leptin contributes to the production of inflammatory cytokines and oicosanoids. So if a person has inflammation, allergies, mast cell issues or asthma they may want to avoid leptin until they have those issues corrected.



The type of asthma described in this link is caused by leaky gut. The symptoms they describe are symptoms of leaky gut. The worse a person gut becomes the more allergies they will develop. This can be caused by vaccine injury, farm chemicals in food or toxins like mercury still found in some vaccines. It is necessary to detox and balance the immune system to help with this type of asthma.


Our western diet with the processed foods have been shown to cause inflammatory and autoimmune diseases.


I included information in this post about things that help with asthma but what isn’t covered here I have covered in this post. https://iamajuicer.wordpress.com/2018/07/20/things-that-may-help-with-copd/

There are metabolic issues that can cause leptin deficiencies. This study describes some things that may help.


Black Sativa seed is another super food. It reduces inflammation and heals the gut. It reduces oxidative stress and is hepaprotective. It helps with proteinuria which is a symptom of porphyria. It has been shown to promote the growth of B cells in the pancreas and helps fight cancer. It helps ease the symptoms of asthma. It helps with neurological damage and drug addiction. It has potent antimicrobial properties. It reduces symptoms of Hoshimoto’s . It helps reduce the symptoms of asthma and mast cell activation syndrome. It reduces histamines. It decreases viral load in those with hepatitis C. It improves memory and breast milk production. It increases IL-10 , which is inhibited by the OspA and disables the immune system. Many things like vaccines, mycoplasma and Lyme contain the OspA which inhibits IL-10. Inhibiting IL-10 disables the immune system. Increasing IL-10 restore proper immune function.










Rutin is a very potent at reducing inflammation and oxidative stress. It helps with diabetes and neurological damage. Fights many types of cancer. It has sedative effects and reduces convulsions. It improves cognitive function. Helps restore pancreatic health. It helps those with high T4 levels by reducing T4 thyroid hormone levels. It prevents excess blood clotting and heals the gut. It reduces histamines and eisonophils which helps with asthma and allergies. It heals the gut and improves gut motility. It stimulates bone growth. It has antimicrobial properties and fights mycoplasma and viral infections. It is a COX-2 inhibitor and has been found to protect from sun damage. It normalizes the immune system and reduces most inflammatory cytokines. It reduces fatigue and is neuroprotective.

Rutin is found in the waxy part of the skins of red apples, white skin of citrus fruit, buckwheat, figs,cherries, apricots, rooibos, and black and green tea are high in rutin. Be careful drinking too much black and green tea. Drinking them excessively can damage the liver. Anything can harm our health if used in excess.





Not eating enough foods effects our gut and is why so many in the western world have gut issues, that along with the BT Toxins in GMOs and glyphosate and other farm chemicals. Search my blog on GMOs and glyphosate and you will see there is a lot of research showing how they destroy the gut and brain. Processed foods are very bad on the digestive system. Once our gut is compromised it starts effecting the health of the whole body resulting in increased mast cell degranulation and inflammation. Digestive enzymes helped me a lot. I chose plant derived enzymes. They reduce inflammation, reduce mast cell degranulation which reduces histamines. They help the food break down and be absorbed by the digestive system. I tried to match the enzymes with the types of foods they broke down so what I was going to eat determined what enzymes I would use. If we are deficient in digestive enzymes we will develop gut dysbiosis, bloating, intestinal inflammation, malabsorption, all things that lead to chronic illness. Farm chemicals which are high in our food supply and processed foods inhibit our digestive enzymes. We also will develop fatigue because it inhibits the bodies ability to produce cellular energy. They help prevent cystic fibrosis and asthma. If inflammation or infection persist it can develop into brochhiectasis which causes excess mucus in the lungs. Brochiectasis can result from inflammatory bowel disease, autoimmune disease, and allergies also. All things that can be corrected. https://patient.info/health/bronchiectasis-leaflet herbs that help fight infection help with bronchiectasis. Also reduce inflammation and histamines. All things I have covered on my blog. I have covered COPD and asthma in more detail so I will not cover it much here. It is caused by either autoimmune or inflammation.






High levels of H2S producing bacteria in the gut can deplete thioredoxin which results in thiol build up in the body making us sensitive to thiols and causing hormone imbalances. Thioredoxin reduces hydrogen peroxide and reactive oxygen species. Hydrogen sulfide usually reduces oxidative stress and hydrogen peroxide. N-acetylcysteine usually helps when there is excess H2S production. If a person has to many sulfur digesting bacteria when they eat high sulfur foods it will cause an increase in H2S leading to intestinal inflammation. H2S prevents thrombosis and high blood pressure. H2S has been found to be decreased in age related brain degenerative illnesses. Excess H2S production in the intestines can lead to pouchitis because it inhibits gut motility. High levels of H2S causes chronic fatigue syndrome. High levels of H2S inhibit the electron transport chain which is one of the final steps in energy metabolism in the body. Excess H2S can enhance the activity of the NMDA receptor , excessive NMDA receptor activity is common in autism. When there is excess H2S thiyl radicals are produced which effect lipid metabolism.









For some cannibus has many health benefits and has shown amazing results on cancer. Unfortunately I am one of the few that is negatively impacted by the cannabinoids in it. Fortunately there are many types of cannabinoids found in many plants. I posted on them in more detail.


Rooibos tea is another amazing herb for healing. It reduces inflammation, reduces histamines, helps with asthma, it fights infection in the lungs.


Choline deficiency or issues with choline metabolism can cause fatty liver, brain dysfunction, neurological damage, inflammation and oxidative stress. I had to deal with choline metabolism issues. You will get indigestion when you consume fats if you have issues with choline metabolism. That could also be a sigh of porphyria. It also causes problems metabolizing fats if you are choline deficient.


I had a lot of friends who used black ginger and they said it really helped them with a variety of illnesses from autoimmunity, asthma, inflammation, arthritis, leaky gut you name it.


Chrysanthemum helps with endotoxemia from infection and leaky gut. It reduces oxidative stress, inflammation and reduces nitrositive stress.


Camu Camu is very nutritious and high in vitamin C and minerals. It reduces inflammation and oxidative stress. It also increases GABA levels.



I am still uncertain about HDAC inhibitors reducing oxidative stress and increasing things that deal with oxidative stress would be a better route to go. Inhibiting HDAC would be treating the symptoms but not the cause of the illness. Inhibiting it can have such a dramatic effect on the body. HDAC inhibitors have been shown to reduce interstitial cystitis symptoms and symptoms of inflammatory bowel diseases, inflammation and cancer. Inhibiting HDAC increases Ogg1 which prevent cancer and oxidative stress. I have posted on the Nrf2 pathways. Activating Nrf2 stimulates Ogg1.





There are natural HDAC inhibitors. Which help fight cancer.






Ogg1, increasing Ogg1 fights cancer, excess oxidative stress and reduces risk of cardiovascular disease and other inflammatory diseases. It has been shown to help with autoimmunity. Inhibiting mTOR activates Ogg1. Remember do not over do it we need some oxidative stress to absorb nutrients, fight infection and break down scar tissue in the body.








Ogg1 needs folate to function properly. Remember folate and folic acid are not the same folic acid is toxic to the body and is man made. High blood glucose levels and low insulin levels can inhibit Ogg1. I have posted on mTOR inhibitors. Inhibiting mTOR increases Ogg1.




Ogg1 and MuT Homolog1 are DNA repair mechanism and are upregulated in ulcerative colitis. Oxidative stress increases their expression.


In bladder injury parp is activated. This indicates excess inflammation or excess oxidative stress causing DNA damage because PARP is activated during DNA damage. Excess PARP activation depletes NAD+/ATP which causes cell death. PARP is over activated in some types of cancer. Keep in mind the common ties. Inflammation, what causes it why is it happening? Finding the source and correcting in is how to heal not by treating the symptoms. PARP inhibition can lead to obesity, insulin resistance and glucose intolerance.




Excess PARP1 hyperactivation can cause occluding to be down regulated. This is found in tight junction layers throughout the body and can lead to a leaky blood brain barrier, bladder injury, and leaky gut. It has also been linked to Alzheimer’s. It can also lead to stroke, heart inflammation, brain and nerve damage.


Querciten and Rutin inhbiti PARP with Querciten being the most potent inhibitor. Heat Shock Protein 90 inhibits PARP. This can be stimulate by heat.



C-reactive protein causes inflammation. It is a sign of bacteria infection. If C-reactive levels are high for too long it can damage the bladder and lead to chronic illness like cardiovascular disease, diabetes and autoimmunity. C-reactive levels are high in most chronic illness especially heart disease and interstitial cystitis. It is usually caused by infection yet I have seen many go years with high C-reactive levels and refused antibiotic treatment because they are told they do not have and infection. Those with tick born illness and interstitial cystitis are the ones who are the most victimized by the medical community. In order to reduce C-reactive protein levels you must address the cause which means detoxing if it is caused by something like glyphosate, aluminum, mercury or infection. An anti-inflammatory diet helps. Also often times oxidative stress is involved and needs addressed.





If p53 is inhibited ROS increases. This in turn can cause mutant P53 which will have the same effects as inhibited p53. Inflammation inhibits p53. Loss of p53 causes inflammation in the body that becomes unregulated especially in the bladder. Oxidative stress and excess inflammation can inhibit P53 creating a cycle that is difficult to break. Mutated P53 is common in interstitial cystitis and cancer.








Magnets reduce inflammation and improve blood flow. One pole stimulates blood flow and one pole reduces inflammation but I do not remember which pole does which and I cannot find the links to the studies.


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.


What causes arterial plaque.






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.


Ly6c inflammatory monocyte and their conversion to M2 monocyte drives atherosclerosis regression. STAT6 is required for the conversion.


I should mention foam cells. That is in the later stages of atherosclerosis and is what leads to blood clotting, stroke and cardiac arrest.




This gets deep into lipid and cholesterol metabolism if a person desires to get a deep understanding of cholesterol and how atherosclerosis may occur. I seen many inaccuracies in this though.


This is a blog of a doctor who discusses his observations of heart disease over the years.


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.






Many medical professionals are starting to speak out about the true cause of heart disease.


Fluoroquinolones contribute to heart disease. Many drugs can cause heart disease.





This is a very good video on why hypertension should not cause the panic it does and why people develop hypertension.


Inflammation causes hypertension and high transglutamase levels can cause hypertension.







High C-reactive protein levels causes inflammation. It can be caused by infection and toxins. This can lead to cardiovascular disease. Or eating a lot of processed foods.



Diabetes and heart disease is symptoms of an underlying health issue. I have posted on diabetes and the causes. The end result is endothelial dysfunction which can be corrected by reducing inflammation and oxidative stress. I have also posted on those.




Urinary marker for oxidative stress. I have posted on oxidative stress and there are other detection methods.


Oxidative stress , endocannabinoid system and atherosclerosis.


Glyphosate which has been found to be high in most of our food supply is one of the number one contributors to high glutamase levels. This cause gluten sensitivity. Glyphosate and antibiotics dysrupt our gut microbiome which can lead to celicac disease.



Inhibiting IL-6 can help with hypertension. IL-6 increases inflammation and is stimulated by infection and injury. IL-6 levels can be raised by infection especially tick born illnesses like Lyme disease.









Most know that peridontal disease has been linked to hypertension.


Infection and oxidative stress can cause high plasma ceremide levels which can lead to cardiovascular disease.


Vaccination has been linked to hypertension.





Vaccines also cause autoimmunity which has been linked to cardiovascular disease.


Information on aldosterone which helps regulate sodium and potassium levels in the body.


Dangers of too much potassium.


Cox inhibition cause salt induced hypertension.


As for salt itself causing hypertension that myth has been busted many times.


UMOD overexpression can cause salt induced hypertension. UMOD overexpression is a sign of urinary infection.



UMOD overexpression is also a sign of kidney injury which can be caused by oxidative stress, nutrient deficiency, bad life style, toxins, farm chemicals like glyphosate even vaccine injury or autoimmunity.


HSP70 can help with those who are sensitive to salt. It can help with salt induced hypertension. I have posted on HSP70. It also prevents thrombosis.




Low sodium diet could have a negative impact on health.


Inhibiting Caveolin-1 helps with hypertension. High Caveolin-1 levels are caused by infection and sepsis.





Salt craving is often a sign of mineral deficiency that is why sea salt can help reduce blood pressure because it can reduce the craving for salt because it has many minerals in it.


Those who have issues with salt may benefit from diuretic foods. But do not over do it. Flushing to many fluids from the body can actually cause high blood pressure from being dehydrated and from and electrolyte imbalance.


Infection can cause hypertension



High oxalates can be formed endogenously, a deficiency in gut bacteria that break them down or from consuming things high in oxalates. If you cook things like kale and spinach in water and then dump the water out most of the oxalates will come out into the water and you will prevent oxalate build up from high oxalate foods.





Antibiotics and farm chemicals found in our food can cause an imbalance in our gut bacteria which can lead to hypertension.






Certain strains of microbiota can pretect us from heart disease.






An imbalance in our gut bacteria can lead to high TMAO levels which can also lead to hypetension.




There are natural and safe ways to inhibit our gut bacterias production of TMAO.



Resveratrol reduce TMAO but cannot be used with those with hepatitis because it activates hepatitis.


I have seen peoples hypertension get worse by taking statins because they deplete CoQ10. CoQ10 deficiency can interfere with sulfation which can lead to hypertension.





Supplementing with CoQ10 can help with hypertension.



High endothelin levels can cause hypertension.


Inhibited bile production can cause high oxLDL levels. Nrf2 is involved in regulating bile. Nrf2 can be a double edged sword. Under some circumstances over activation can contribute to atherosclerosis.










They have found many heart attacks have been caused by taurine deficiency. Taurine deficiency can cause hypertension.




NAC has similar effects as taurine.



Vitamin D deficiency has been linked to hypertension. Inhibited vitamin D receptor can cause the body to convert vitamin D and store it in the liver. There are many things that can inhibit the vitamin D receptor like vaccine adjuvants, glyphosate, heavy metals especially mercury and lead. This is why heart attacks occur more frquently in the winter.





Potassium deficiency can cause hypertension. Also too much salt or too much potassium can through our sodium and potassium ratios out of balance.



Foods high in potassium.


Magnesium deficiency can cause heart disease and hypertension.



Thiamine can help prevent heart disease.


There are many nutrient deficiencies that can lead to heart disease.


Vitamin K2 is often overlooked.


Some vitamins taken in high amounts can cause health problems.


Sugar added to food may cause hypertension from salt.




Though sodium bicarbonate has been shown to help with many medical conditions if consumed too much it can cause hypertension.



Sodium bicarbonate mineral water in moderation reduce cholesterol.



Sodium Bicarbonate does help those who have just had a heart attack.


B12 deficiency can cause hypertension and mental illness.





Riboflavon can help with high blood pressure.


Now we know inflammation can result in hypertension and an imbalance in our electrolytes can cause inflammation.


Cortisol can disrupt the balance of our electrolytes. High levels can lead to hypertension. This can be caused by many health issues or stress.







Information on balancing cortisol.


So this indicates that issues with the HPA could cause hypertension.


We cannot exclude pharmaceuticals many of them can induce hypertension.


Insulin resistance can cause hypertension. This can be corrected.


Cytochrome P450 enzymes involved with cholesterol.


Low carbohydrate diet can help restore insulin sensitivity. Diets like this should only be used short term.


Astragalus may help restore insulin sensitivity.


Burdock can help restore insulin levels to normal.



Corn silk helps reduce insulin levels and help prevent cardiovascular disease.



Our gut bacteria also help regulate our glucose levels.


Before jumping into supplements it is a good idea to research how they effect the body what is good for one can be harmful for another.



Stress can cause heart disease. Though we cannot avoid it we can learn to deal with it in a way that will not cause health issues. Also mindful meditation , prayer and participation in religious meeting have been shown to reduce stress. Also listening to music and socializing has been shown to reduce stress.


Gallstones can be caused by many health issues especially issues with high estrogen level, inhibited vitamin D receptor and many other things. If not corrected it can lead to cardiovascular disease.


High TH17 levels can cause hypertension. This can be caused by gut microbiome imbalance, vaccine injury, glyphosate and other farm chemicals. It can also be caused by toxins especially heavy metals.




Metabolic issues can cause hypertension.





Plants that may help with metabolic syndrome.


BH4 issues can cause hypertension. I have posted on BH4.



Folate is needed for BH4 production.


Toxins like glyphosate, antbiotics especially fluorquinolones and mercury can negatively impact the sulfur status in the body. It is important in the regulation of our blood pressure.



Sulfur deficiency can lead to many health problems.


H2S help regulate blood pressure. In low amounts it reduce blood pressure and when levels are high it can lead to high blood pressure. Gut dysbiosis and over production endogenously can cause excess H2S which can lead to hypertension.



It is not mentioned in this study but the sulfur digesting bacteria will break down inulin if you have gut dysbiosis. Inulin usually has good effects on our health but with gut dysbiosis consuming inulin can increase H2S levels causing them to get too high.


Issues with our antioxidant system can cause hypertension. This can be caused by infection, toxins, even stress.


I usually do not promote allopathic medicines because they usually do more harm then good but studies on Ebselen shows it can help restore the antioxidant system and has many other help benefits.


Intersting article on homones and the pituitary.



Atherosclerosis causes hypertension, most know inflammation and oxidative stress cause it along with infection. But processed sugar also causes atherosclerosis.




G6PD overexpression can cause excess oxidative stress.



Information on oxidative stress.


Reducing oxidative stress can reduce blood pressure.


Copper deficiency can cause cardiovascular disease.


Copper Toxicity can cause hypertension


High histamines can cause the blood vessels to leak. The body will seal the leaks with calcium resulting in atherosclerosis. Histamines are a result of mast cell degranulation or over consumption of foods that contain histamines or a loss of the histamine reducing bacteria in the gut. There are metabolic issues that cause high histamines.





Detailed description of cholesterol.



High cholesterol protects from infection and atherosclerosis. But if the body cannot get rid of an infection especially one like Lyme disease it can cause atherosclerosis.



Things that help prevent atherosclerosis.


Fruits and Vegetables and plants that help with atherosclerosis.



Low dose vitamin C helps with atherosclerosis but high dose cause it. Another problem with vitamin C it can be harmful to those who are G6PD deficient. Megadoses of vitamin C can cause mineral loss in the body and also breaks down red blood cells which can lead to anemia. Also vitamin C increase iron absorption. Megadoses can lead to iron toxicity.


Be pollen helps prevent atherosclerosis. Unfortunately farm chemicals and GMOs have dramatically reduced the bee population and it is getting harder and harder to get.


This study shows that exercise and purslane seed reduce atherosclerosis but I have seen studies on the plant itself and it has many health benefits and would reduce hypertension.


If you crave junk food it is a sign of leptin resistance which can lead to hypertension.


Methylene Blue is used to reverse sepsis but should not be used by those with G6PD deficiency or high blood pressure.


Ketosis can help with metabolic issues but in some it can cause life threatening ketoacidosis.



Vanillan receptor agonist can help reduce hypertension.


Mugwort helps with hypertension.




Coconut Oil my help with hypertension.




Stinging nettles helps with hypertension.


Kudzu helps with hypertension but cannot be used by those with high estrogen levels because it increases estrogen.


Celery seed helps with hypertension. I know many who reduced their hypertension by juicing celery.


Nattokinase helps with hypertension it can also prevent thrombosis.




Paw Paw can help prevent thrombosis.



Melatonin is great for healing the whole body so I believe it should help with hypertension.


Bacopa helps with hypertension.



Grape seed extract helps with hypertension.



Hawthorne lowers blood pressure. I have seen many of my friends have amazing results using hawthorne.




Hesperiden is a helicase inhibitor it helps fight viruses but has also been shown to help with hypertension. It is found in the white parts of citrus peels.


If you have hypertension marijuana can increase your risk of death.


Biacalin found in plantain herb, fleabane, and sculetaria helps with hypertension by reducing inflammation and fighting infection. It also reduces oxidative stress.




Bacopa is another herb with great healing properties. It helps prevent thrombosis and cardiovascular disease.


Dandelion reduces tryglyceride accumulation.


Rooibos is another tea with great healing abilities. It can prevent thrombosis.


Pyrroloquinolone is amazing at healing, it helped heal the neurological damage I had from Lyme. It has been shown to help with cardiovascular disease and seem like a nutrient that we need. It protects the heart. It is found in green peppers.


Camu Camu reduces inflammation and oxidative stress.


Taxifolin helps with hypertension by reducing oxidative stress.


Nitric Oxide regualtion is important in preventing heart disease.



Syringaresinol helps increase Nitric Oxide. It can be found in radishes, grape wine, Ginkgo nuts, and Panax gensing berries.


Beet root can increase nitric oxide.


Influencing Nitric Oxide is something that has to be done with caution because there is a fine balance in the nitric oxide system that must be maintained.



Anti-hypertensive herbs and how they work.




Thyme helps with hypertension.


Grape seed extract helps with hypertension but those with hepatitis should not take it. It has resveratrol which activates hepatitis.


Self Heal helps with hypertension and helps fight many types of viruses. It works by reducing oxidative stress. It works through the Nrf2 system which has been found to be a target to help in reducing hypertension. It also reduces inflammation.




Antiphospholipid syndrome syndrome is an autoimmune disease that can be caused by infection, vaccine injury, toxins especially heavy metals and the farm chemicals in our food. Instead of throwing drugs at it I believe a person should correct the autoimmunity. I have posted on autoimmunity.





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.




Nutrients that reduce hypertension.


There are many natural ACE inhibitors which will help with hypertension until you can address the cause.



Pomegranate is an ACD inhibitor.


Marine sources of ACE inhibitors.


Whole cooked rice is an ACE inhibitor.



Plant sources of ACE inhibitors.


Pea the legume is an ACE inhibitor.


Some may be experiencing proteinuria which is a symptom of BH4 issues or CBS issues. Increasing heparin helps with proteinuria. Heparin resistance can be cause by an Antithrombin deficiency, injury, or high estrogen levels.



Feverfew can reduce hypertension but I do not recommend it because it is addictive and cause toxic withdrawal syndrome which cause super bad headaches. It is very good at fighting colds and the flu but I would not use it for more then three days or so.


Lactoferrin helps reduce hypertension in a variety of ways.


Gouda cheese helps with hypertension.


Wild violet helps with hypertension in a variety of ways.


Omega 3s can help with hypertension but what I found is if over used you may throw your omega 3 and omega 6 levels out of balance and contribute to hypertension. Also if you have porphyria you will have issues taking any type of oil and it needs addressed. I have posted on porphyria.




Medium chain tryglicerides help with many types of illnesses.


Low cholesterol can increase mortality.





Cholesterol prevents autoimmunity.


Low cholesterol damages the brain. To learn more about statins and their negative effects on the brain read my post about it.


Not only that but statins may contribute to heart disease.


As cholesterol levels go up heart disease goes down.





cholesterol is an anti-inflammatory.


Benefits of cholesterol.




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. That is why obesity and heart disease rates have climbed dramatically in the United States. One myth is that fats cause hardening of the arteries and that is not true.




Low triglyceride levels increase mortality from stroke and increased risk for heart disease.



Fat consumption does not correlate with lipid levels in blood vessels.


MUFA is good fat.


Saturated fat is good fat.


Cod liver oil in moderation can help with cardiovascular disease.




HDL is considered good cholesterol but it can cause atherosclerosis if lipid peroxidation occurs.


Under the correct conditions HDL prevents inflammation.


Black seed heals many things it has amazing healing abilities.




Trans fatty acids which were promotes as the new fat that was going to prevent obesity and heart disease has been found to cause them.


Lycopene found in the skins of tomatoes has been shown to have many health benefits especially on the heart.


Astaxantin has been shown to provide the brain with energy, it also reduce oxLDL by reduding oxidative stress.


Mediterranean diet can reduce hypertension.


This study discusses balancing pretty much everything.


Cissus helps prevent high blood pressure.


Ajuna helps with hypertension but has many side effects.


Berberine found in barberry helps with diabetes, and heart disease. It reduces tryglyceride levels. It also reduces oxidative stress. Berberine also increases the good gut bacteria that protect the heart and prevent obesity.





Histidine prevents heart injury.



This is one example of how processed food can cause health problems. I posted on how toxic our food is. There are many foods that will cause health problems that are actually considered healthy.



Gingko and Sophora may help with cardiovascular disease because it helps decrease the vasoconsriction response cause by excess histamines and bradykinnins.



Correct breathing methods are needed for healthy blood pressure.


Herbs that can be used during pregnancy.


Aged garlic extract can help with heart disease.


Okra has been found to help heal many things including cardiovascular disease. It also helps with diabetes.


Resistant starch a type of fiber helps reduce blood pressure most fiber does.



Resistant starch helps our gut bacteria produce butyrate which helps prevent heart disease. It can also be found in butter.


Citrus extracts and their beneficial effects on heart disease.


This is a type of Golden Rod. Most species are chemically similar. They can inhibit the absorption of cholesterol so if you have low cholesterol levels you may want to avoid golden rod.


Blue Berry honeysuckle helps prevent heart disease.


White malberry can help with hypertension


Many spices have anti-inflammatory effects. This study talks about cancer but it mentions various spices and their anti-inflammatory abilities. Inflammation can lead to atherosclerosis.


Saffron has a lot of health benefits and reduces cardiovascular disease.


These plants have steroid like effects. I would not use them long term but they have less side effects then man made steroids.


Thiocyanate helps prevent atherosclerosis. Excess Thiocyanate can cause thyroid problems it inhibits iodide transport when levels get too high.




Evening primrose oil helps with cardiovascular disease.



Beta Glucan in oatmeal reduces cardiovascular disease. Mushrooms also contain beta glucan. Make sure you get organic oatmeal because non organic is high in glyphosate which causes heart disease.


Japanese honeysuckle helps with heart disease and reduces hydrogen peroxide levels.


Tumeric has been shown to reduce atherosclerosis but you have to use it in moderation it contains curcumine which chelates iron and long term use can make you anemic.


Getting measles when young reduces your risk of atherosclerosis when you get older.


Getting sunlight helps prevent atherosclerosis.


Skipping breakfast increases the risk of atherosclerosis.


Reversing atherosclerosis.



A polypore mushroom that grows in South America may be able to reverse atherosclerosis.


Astaxanthin may be able to reverse atherosclerosis.


Krill oil may reverse atherosclerosis by activating PPAR.


What about those mouth breathers?

David Anderson ran this thread in our Facebook group “Synergistic Illness”. I found it interesting and very informative so I am sharing the links.

We have all seen mouth breathers. When I have seen them I always knew right off the bat they had health problems but there are consequences for breathing through your mouth. This link speaks about the theories surrounding mouth breathing.


How it effects our health.


It can effect your mouth and teeth.




Nutrition and mouth breathing.



This can effect you mentally.



Allergies which can be caused by vaccine injury, toxins, farm chemicals found in our foods and many other things can lead to mouth breathing.




Some other causes of mouth breathing.


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.





To prevent children having a life full of illness it is important to make sure they develop a balanced gut microbiome while young.




Our environment effects our jeans. Also a childs health is determined by the bacteria they get will still and infant.



We need to ask ourselves why has obesity , chronic illness and heart disease increased so dramatically? If modern medicine, TV and the government is right then our health should be improving not declining. Studies have shown that we eat far less fat and cholesterol in the U.S. then we did in the past and we eat more fruits and vegetables. So why are these conditions increasing?







Increasing Leptin sensitivity can reduce body weight.






Increasing insulin sensitivity will help with leptin levels.




Ghrelin can also effect our weight and those who are obese seem to have lower levels of ghrelin but are more sensitive to it. They believe this is because many obese people have been shown to have high cortisol levels. This makes us more sensitive to ghrelin. Rooibos, suma and maca are adaptogenic herbs. Ghrelin, insulin and leptin communicate with each other so issues with those will effect our ghrelin levels.




Things that effect ghrelin.




Ghrelin regulates our glucose levels in the body and many other things.



Often times weight loss can cause a rise in appetite because of the raised Leptin levels. Once leptin levels come down this resolves itself.


Also what contributes to obesity is the low nutrient food and they manipulate advertising to influence what we eat.


Inflammation and high histamines can cause issues with our cannabinoid receptors and this can lead to diabetes and obesity.





How stress impacts the body and contributes to obesity.



Diet effects gut bacteria and can cause obesity and diabetes. Food additives are one of the biggest culprits contributing to obesity.









Information about gut microbiome and what they do.


Microbiota that cause weight loss and weight gain.


How to boost the good gut bacteria.


Our gut bacteria determines our body type. Remember our gut bacteria modulate our genes and will determine if we are thin or obese based on what the composition of our microbiome is.



Vaccines and antibiotics contribute to obesity. Just like anything else obesity is actually an illness. Most who are obese are not obese because they are lazy. I know many obese people who were very hard workers.





So we have established obesity can be an autoimmune disorder but it can also be a metablolic disorder.



Our diet can contribute to this.


Antibiotics can cause many health problems including obesity and diabetes.


Our gut bacteria modulate our metabolism.



The sad part is the drugs to counter act the health effects of the first drug causes even more severe health problems.


Good carbs and bad carbs. Many avoid carbs but our gut bacteria need them to keep us healthy.


Camu Camu can help with that though. Camu Camu helps reduce stress and inflammation.


Rose hips helps with obesity.


Eating GMOs causes weight gain by changing our gut bacteria and our metabolism.





GMOs, farm chemicals and drugs can effect bile flow which can lead to obesity.







All the above mentioned kill our butyrate producing bacteria which keep us from gaining weight.


Most allergies are caused by farm chemicals in our foods, processed foods, BT Toxin in GMOs cause the body to react the same would your body would if it had food poisoning. This can lead to allergies. Antibiotics kill our good gut bacteria which can lead to allergies. This can result in obesity.


Exposure to heavy metals can lead to obesity by causing inflammation and metabolic issues.


Stress, chemicals especially chemicals like glyphosate and glufosinate found in our food can raise zonulin levels. Many medications can raise zonulin levels setting things into motion that can lead to many health problems and obesity.


Lipocalin and obesity.


Lipocalin oxidizes fat causing weight loss.


Our gut bacteria need iron tho thrive but the iron they fortify food with is the wrong type. Iron found in curly dock and burdock root will supply you with iron without causing toxicity unless you have certain liver diseases. If you have iron toxicity lactoferrin will restore iron homeostasis. Curcumine will reduce iron levels in the blood also but do not take it too long or you can become anemic.


Luteolin helps with obesity.


Good vagus nerve health protects from obesity.


Many of the food manufacturers know processed sugar , processed fructose is even worse and causes inflammation which leads to obesity but they blame the people and hide the fact they new that it has ill effects on our health. I have not included the research in this blog post but processed honey acts pretty much like processed sugar but raw honey does not. Sugars in fruits help fight illness and have health benefits showing that we need the cofactors along with the sugars.




I have posted on oxidative stress. It can lead to many health problems including obesity.


Resveratrol found in grape seed extract helps reduce inflammation which is a cause of obesity.


Sage helps with diabetes.


Vitamin A helps with diabetes and obesity but it and Vitamin D have to be balanced.


Vitamin D deficiency causes obesity, those with darker complexion are more prone to vitamin D deficiency.


Even gut bacteria can positively impact our health.


A list of diet advice by Dr Axe.


Diet effects our health by changing our gut bacteria.




Smoking can cause weight gain.


Sulfur is needed by almost every cell in the body. A deficiency or issue with sulfation can cause obesity. I have posted on sulfation.


BH4 is involved in energy metabolism. It is effected by high sulfite levels, inflammation , oxidative stress and nutrient deficiencies. This can lead to obesity. A person with BH4 or CBS issues will be sensitive to sulfur containing foods and drugs.


Toxins found in our food can cause issues with G6PD especially glyphosate and glufonisate which can lead to obesity.


Houttyynia can help with obesity.


Dandelion helps with diabetes.


The flavonoids found in the white part of citrus fruit helps with obesity.


Part of the problem is we do not get enough saturated fat now days.



Beta Glucan found in oats, barley and mushrooms help with obesity.



We know inflammation can cause diabetes. Endothelins can cause inflammation.


There are many herbals that will reduce obesity by reducing the things that cause obesity like inflammation, histamines and autoimmune issues or addressing the nutrient deficiencies that can lead to those things.


Nrf2 activators help with diabetes.



Lactoferrin helps with obesity by reducing the gut bacteria that cause obesity.


Spirulina helps with obesity but is high in sulfur for those dealing with sulfur issue they may not be able to use this one.


Many spices have healing properties.


Things that can cause breast cyst.

Causes of breast cyst.

Infection can cause breast cyst. Many with tick born illness experience this. Even many toxins can cause breast cyst.







When we have underlying health issues fibrosis can develop. This is a symptom of a health issue that needs addressed. Excess oxidative stress, metabolic issues and nutrient deficiencies can cause fibrosis among many other things.


Aluminum found in vaccines and products used on the body can cause cyst.




Clothes that fit too tight.


Farm chemicals especially glyphosate which has been found to be in most of our food supple can cause breast cyst and even cancer.


Breast Cyst from an underlying cause.


Excess oxidative stress from a toxin or illness which can lead to cancer.


BPAs and other xenoestrogens we can come in contact with can cause breast cyst.


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.





If not addressed amyloidosis can result in chronic illness and organ failure.





It can even form structures in the body that will remind you of something out of and alien movie.


My question is why are amyloid plaque formations usually round and cyst formed by a pathogen contain amyloid and are usually round.





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.



Ironic that doxycycline fights Lyme and amyloidosis.













Oxidative stress induced.




Since iron is an oxidizer it stands to reason that it would be link to amyloid plaque deposites. Since curcumin chelates iron it recudes amyloid plaque, it also reduces BACE1



Usually I recommend lactoferrin to those who are healing but seems it should not be recommended to those with high amyloid levels.


Vaccinations can cause amyloidosis.






Many things can cause autoimmune disorders and they have been linked to brain damage. Which can lead to amyloidosis.









Drugs can induce amyloidosis.


Ethylene Glycol is found in vaccinations. This is antifreeze.


Glyphosate has been found to effect the human brain also. It can even alter a persons sexual preference.





There are many toxins we are subjected to that damage the brain.


Oxidative stress.





Even sleep deprivation can contribute to the build up of amyloid.



Food sources that can cause amyloid plaque build up.


Infection as a source of amyloidogenic proteins.





Amyloid works as an antibiotic in the body so is a sign of infection.


Proton Pump Inhibitors cause B-amyloid to build up.


Some food additives contribute to amyloid build up.




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?






It stands to reason that diabetes would be linked to Alzheimer’s. Diabetes can be caused by oxidative stress, inflammation, and even autoimmune disorders. All these things can cause amyloid plaque to build up.





Toxins in our food like BT Toxin , glufosinate, and glyphosate can cause a leaky blood brain barrier. Many drugs can also cause this especially fluoroquinolones. Leaky gut and gut dysbiosis can also lead to a leaky blood brain barrier. The can cause amyloid plaque to build up. So can metabolic issues that lead to acidosis or alkaloidosis.









Our gut bacteria protect us from toxins.


The glymphatic system is involved in keeping the brain cleaned out. I am not certain but I think I covered this in my detox post. When it becomes blocked it negatively effects the brain.




Bad body posture can result in poor glymphatic system function. Chiropractors were ahead of their time on this one.


Fluoride found in most public drinking water damages the brain.




Vaccine injury , toxins, mold and infections can cause high quinolinic acid which can cause inflammation the the brain. They can cause B6 to become depleted which raises quinolinic acid levels.


Tick born illness especially Lyme can lead to high quinolinic acid levels.


Heavy metals like mercury and aluminum damage the brain. Metallothionein helps remove heavy metals from the body thus protecting the brain. It also helps protect from free radicals and oxidative stress.



Chromium increases metallothionein but we must be careful because chromium can increase insulin levels and we do not want to increase them too much. Zinc is also needed for metallothionein, I get my from unfiltered raw honey. What confuses me is they consider zinc an inert molecule that is not part of the redox system but it is heavily involved in redox.



There are many nutrients that can increase metallothionein.


They claim it can be genetic but many things they claim are genetic often times are not genetic but can be linked to habits passed down to us from family, our microbiome or environmental factors. So even though they claim it is genetic I believe change the environment internally and externally and you can change the condition.


Since amyloid is part of the immune system and cancer can be caused by immune dysfunction it stands to reason that amyloid would be tied to cancer. Have a blog post on cancer that could compliment this information.




If amyloidosis is not addressed it can lead to cutaneous amyloidosis.




Yep stands to reason EMFs can cause mitochondrial damage so increasing amyloid in the brain is bound to occur. Frequency does matter. There are studies showing certain frequencies actually reduce amyloid.







This is the frequency of many cordless phones.



Leaky gut can permit more LPS to enter the blood stream resulting in high amyloid protein levels. Glyphosate, glufosinate and BT Toxins in GMOs can cause leaky gut. So can heavy metals like mecury and lead. 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.





BACE1 involvement in amyloid plaque.


Inhibiting BACE1 reverses Alzheimer’s.


Alpinia Officinarum has galagin which reduces BACE1.


Pastacia integerrima known as zebra wood contains a BACE1 inhibitor.


Genistein may inhibit BACE1.


Other compounds that may inhibit BACE4


Things that may help.

Detoxing aluminum.


Nattokinase and Serrapeptase help reduce amyloid and in some studies has been shown to reduce amyloid plaque. These should be used in moderation, very high doses can cause damage in the body.


Black Sativa helps protect the brain.


There are a number of intervention methods that may help with Alzheimer’s.


Reducing inflammation helps with Alzheimer’s.


Probiotics can help with alzheimers.


Cognitive reserve can help protect from Alzheimer’s.



Astaxanthin found in krill oil reduces oxidative stress. I have posted on oxidative stress.


High cholesterol improves memory function.


Statins damage the brain by depriving it of cholesterol.




Low cholesterol can harm your health.


Cholesterol dysregulation contributes to Alzheimer’s. This has also been found to contribut to NAFLD.




This is usually caused by oxidative stress or an autoimmune disorder.




Cholesterol regulation in the body.


Cholesterol decreases inflammtion but high insulin levels can interfere with that.



Desmosterol and other natural phytosterols are LXR agonist and help with cholesterol dysregulation.


Silica may help with Alzheimer’s.


All the above mentioned things can cause brain fog. Luteolin helps reduce brain fog.


Tryptophan improves brain function.


Citric acid and citrate found in the white part of citrus fruits help protect the brain.


Ebselem a drug for mental illness has been found to reduce oxidative stress and protect the brain.


Flax seed oil reduces oxidative stress.


Phosphatidylserine has been shown to help with cognitive decline.


Balancing GABA and Glutamate help improve cognitive function.


B6 reduces brain inflammation and quinolinic acid. High quinolinic acide levels can lead to alzheimers.


Increasing melatonin helps reduce the toxicity of quinolinic acid.



I prefer natural sources of melatonin if they it is low there are natural sources and natural ways to increase it.


Sulforapane helps reduce quinolinic acid so it is important to get things that inhibit sulfation like glyphosate and mercury reduced in the body and address things that cause high hydrogen sulfite levels like gut dysbiosis addressed. If not then high sulfur foods will make a person sicker.


Selenium reduces quinolinic acid. A good source of selenium is brazil nuts.


L-theanine reduces quinolinic acid.


Curcumine reduces quinolinic acid and is absorbed better when taken with black pepper. If curcumine is taken for too long it can make a person anemic. It can chelate iron from the body.


Inositol Hexaniacinate is a special form of niacin that prevents the uncomfortable flushing that can come from taking nicacin. Niacin can reduce guinolinic acid by reducing tryptophan shunting to the quinolinic pathway. It has also been found to reduce oxLDL levels.




There are many plant extracts that effect the brain in a variety of ways.


Insulin-like Growth Factor protects the brain, helps build muscle. Now the bad high levels can feed cancer. It reduces insulin tolerance, and can be linked to cardiovascular disease. In my opinion this should only be increased if you are healing because it is a hormone needed when we are young and still growing. Vitamin D, Fish, milk and chicken increase IGF-1. Getting enough sleep and exercise increases IGF-1







Inhibiting acetycholesterinesterase helps with alzheimers.


Linarin inhibits acetylcholesterinesterase.


Japanese honeysuckle protects the brain by reducing inflammation.


Manganese deficiency can lead to chronic illness it is need in many metabolic pathways but should be used in moderation because if taken in excess it can damage the brain.


Gingko helped me a lot but I have seen studies that have shown long term use can cause liver damage. I had a strange reaction at first it gave me a bad headache but after a day or two of taking it I noticed I could think clearer.


Wild Violet protects from oxidative stress.


Their are many nootropic herbs they improve cognitive function.


NAC reduces oxidative stress. NAC is one of those supplements that should be pulsed because I noticed that if you take it too often it can start having negative effects on the health.


High glutamate levels can damage the brain. There are many environmental factors now days that can cause high glutamate levels.


Passion Flower protects from glutamate toxicity but I have seen studies that show long term use can start damaging the liver.


There are natural ways to reduce glutamate.


Self heal helps improve concentration.


Rhodiola helps protect the brain.


Silence promotes brain healing.


Serrapeptase and Nattokinase help with Alzheimer’s , it stands to reason because they break down amyloid plaque.


Saffron helps with memory loss.


PQQ helps repair the brain.


Increasing myelin to improve brain function.


Cannabinoids help break down amyloid plaque.


Naturals that help reduce amyloid plaque.


Coconut Oil reduces amyloid plaque.


Antioxidants that help with amyloid.




Looks like more then a theory.

Mugwort kills many types of pathogens and it reduces amyloid.


Antioxidants reduce amyloid.



Though I do not like the antibiotic used in this study because fluoroquinolones do more harm then good this show antibiotics help.


Other antibiotics work also.



Mullein has antibiotic properties and reduces amyloid.


Olive leaf kills pathogens even HIV, it reduces amyloid.


Gotu Kola kills many pathogens and it reduces amyloid.


Cinnamon kills pathogens and you guessed it.


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.



This is a list of things that can cause inflammation which leads to chronic pain. I have posted information on most of these.


Coffee acts as an opioid. Those with carditits or tachycardia are supposed to avoid caffeine.


Vitex acts on the opioid receptors.



CBD and PEA help with gut pain and inflammation.






PEA has also been found to help with bladder pain. But if a person has pyrrole issues which is usually a symptom of porphyria they should address those issues before taking any type of fats. If they do not it can irritate their bladder. It will also cause a type of acid reflux.


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. So when high we should try and reduce them. High Indothelin levels can cause asthma, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.



mTOR inhibitors reduce endothelin. I have mentioned mTOR in other post if you do a search in my profile.



Endothelin is high in cirrhosis of the liver and COPD.



High substance P levels can cause mast cell activation syndrome, inflammation and pain. I have posted on substance P. Magnesium helps reduce endothelin.





Chamomille reduces substance P.


Cox increased pain and inflammation. Natural Cox inhibitors reduce pain and inflammation.




Nutmeg is a Cox inhibitor and reduces pain. It has a potent canidbinoid that can cause hallucinations, seizures and even death if taken in to high amounts.


Opium Lettuce also known as wild lettuce has a natural pain killer in it that is non addictive. It is similar to opium and has been used to break opium addiction and has been shown to reduce withdrawal. It also reduces inflammation. The only toxicity I have seen is when people have purified the sap and smoked it. Also a few who consumed much too much. There were no fatalities that I could find documented.




Aloe Vera is neuroprotective and reduces inflammation.


This one actually surprised me. I set out to prove that using magnets for pain and inflammation was crazy. I found none that showed no effects and most studies showed magnets improved blood flow , promoted healing and reduced inflammation.


Additives in food, drugs like fluoroquinolone, farm toxins which have been found to be high in our food supply can cause high glutamate levels. This cause headaches, anxiety, difficulty sleeping, inflammation and systematic pain.



Vitamin C can alleviate pain but in high doses it can cause oxalates and break down read blood cells.


Many things can set off a cytokine storm. This causes systematic inflammation and pain. Vaccine injury is a major contributors along with farm chemicals found in our food. Food additives and processed sugar also causes inflammation. I have posted a list of naturals that reduce inflammatory cytokines.





This woman listed things that helped her friend with interstitial cystitis pain. All the things she mentions also helped me.


If you have certain metabolic issues like protenuria, porphyria or sulfation issues which they claim is genetic but I have seen many recover from it when they have detoxed fluoroquinolones or glyphosate. Some may have to avoid meat for a while until they correct the metabolic issues.


Toning the vagus nerve can reduce pain.


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.




Lacking certain gut bacteria and having to many of others can cause pain.





Even in sickle cell the gut has been linked to pain.


Mugwort is an amazing plant. It has been shown to heal the liver, brain, and reduce inflammation. It increases GABA which reduces pain. It kills many pathogens and has been shown to be very effective against cancer.


There are many different cannabinoids found in a variety of plants. The most well known is found in cannibis. Not all benefit from the cannibinoids in cannabis. But many do and it has been shown to be extremely effective against cancer.


Cannabinoid in carrots and parsley, reduces inflammation and pain.


Magnolia contains a cannabinoid that reduces pain and inflammtion.

A-Pinene is a cannibinoid found in pine and it reduces pain and inflammation.



Lemon grass contains myrcene which is cannabiniod like.


Exercise helps release endogenous cannabinoids.


Many things they claim are genetic can be corrected and I have posted on that. Things that may be genetic usually do not present themselves unless a number of issues have built up and cause a synergistic effect. Correcting those problems usually will stop any the supposed flawed gene from presenting itself.


Drugs are one of the major causes of damage leading to pain in the body. Statins and fluoroquinolones are two of the major culprits.



I have covered mTOR in other post. High mTOR levels can be a cause of pain and inflammation and has been found to be high in many inflammatory diseases.


Interstitial Cystitis is like all forms of chronic illnesses rolled into one. Studies have found that it is best to listen to the patient on what works and what does not. Also they have shown naturals work better.



I was never one to leave them inject me with steroids. All those I knew who got steroid injections I would see a dramatic decline in their health shortly after so I have no confidence in their safety or effectiveness.


High adrenal levels can be the result of toxins, vaccine injury, excess stress or infection. It has been found to be common in those with inflammatory diseases.


Mindfull meditation has been shown to reduce pain.


It is very important to try and get over trauma because it can lead to chronic pain and health issues.


Increased BH4 levels can raise pain levels. They inhibit it in this study which can have many negative health effects. I have posted on correcting BH4 by taking the nutrients needed to support it. Upregulated BH4 also upregulates the CBS pathway. This can effect the Pentose Phosphate Pathway which can lead to diabetes, heart disease and arteriosclerosis.


TMJ a disorder where there is pain in the jaws can be caused by infection especially tick born illness. Lyme disease and some tick born illness that can be even worse can cause systematic illness.





Tylenol is very hard on the liver. There are safe natural alternatives to tylenol.


Botox has been found to help those with severe bladder pain.


Acetyl-L-Carnatine has been shown to help with neurological pain.


Lyme and other tick born illness effects the whole body. That is why many with Lyme have interstitial cystitis.


Lyme treatment often times fails that is why many of us turn to alternatives.


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.


NSAIDs can damage the gut if taken for too long which can lead to many forms of chronic illness.


Cissus has been shown to reduce pain.


This article discusses the immune system and how it can lead to chronic pain. I have posted on the immune system with links on how to balance it.


Pau D Arco helped me a lot. Fights inflammation and many pathogens including mycoplasma.


Most plants in the Mallow family reduce pain and inflammation.


Rooibos is an amazing herb it kills infections especially in the lungs and reduces inflammation and histamines.


Bacopa is another amazing herb that reduces inflammation , heals blood vessels and has many other benefits.


I do not like supplementing things the body can produce but in some instances supplementing may be necessary. Melatonin has many healing properties. There are ways to stimulate melatonin production.


Feverfew reduces pain, fights the flu and common cold. It can be addicitive and cause withdrawal called toxic withdrawal syndrome if taken for too long.



A variety of plants and their effects on pain. I seen lemon balm mentioned many of my friends said it has helped them.





Japanese honeysuckle reduces inflammation and histamines.




With some types of illness we can develop high glutamate levels. This can make it feel like our head is going to split open. Burdock root can reduce the symptoms of high glutamate levels.


Purslane is a super food. It has almost all nutrients needed by the body. It reduces inflammation and is very high in mucilage which heals the gut.


Wild Violet has neuroprotective properties.




Passion Flower has been shown to reduce pain and have neuroprotective effects but I have seen studies that have shown it can damage the liver though it was not clear if it was reversible or the amount of passion flower that was used. I know many who have used it and said it really helped them but once they healed they discontinued use. I would not recommend frequent or high dose usage.


Yarrow has pain killing properties and reduces inflammation. Should not be used before bed because it has stimulant effects.



Our gut bacteria reduce pain by modulating the opioid and cannabinoid receptors.

Even some of our gut bacteria modulate the opioid and cannabinoid receptors.



Symptoms of gall bladder problems.

Symptoms of gallbladder problems.

Acute pain, possibly very severe, that occurs very suddenly. It may last a few minutes, or many hours
Pain is usually located behind your breastbone, but may occur in the upper right abdominal area
Pain between your shoulder-blades
Chills and fever
Nausea and vomiting

Many of the things in this list help reduce my pain.


Sunlight reduces pain.


Problems with the vagus nerve which can result from toxins, infection, stress and bad diet can cause chronic pain.



This one do your research on. Some things mentioned can have ill effects for some for example SAM-e causes me many problems.


Bad fats cause inflammation.


Wild Daisy helps with anxiety but it helped me with pain.


resveratrol found in grape seed extract reduces bradykinins which can cause inflammation.


Brown seaweed helps with neuropathic pain.


Many sources of pain can be identified by a chiropractor who knows the human body better then most doctors.



How our genes can be the cause of our pain.


Tryptophan decreases pain.


I have never tried arnica but many of my friend said it has helped them.


Some have found relief using pectin , it helped me.


Nutrient deficiencies can cause pain.



St. Johnswort reduces pain inflammation and has antioxidant properties. I seen studies that claimed it was toxic to the liver. Those studies where vague as to methodology and lacking data. Most studies I have read on St Johnswort showed it to be non toxic and does the opposite it actually reduce inflammation in the liver.




I have never tried Kratom but many of my friends have and they have really benefited from it. They claim it is addictive but none of them became addicted. I do know something in the kratom that is green irritates IC sufferers bladder and my friends said the red kratom did not irritate their bladders.



Thunder God vine has been used by some but I am skeptic because it takes someone knowledgeable to prepare it and there have been incidences of people being poisoned by herbs being prepared wrong.



Rhodiola helps with endurance and many said it reduced their pain.




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. I wrote this before they introduced the Covid vaccine. Cancer is now going to be rampant because the vaccines cause cancer in a variety of ways. Why the vaccinated are more prone to infection and are developing cancer. https://arkmedic.substack.com/p/philadelphia-2023?utm_source=direct&utm_campaign=post&utm_medium=web&fbclid=IwAR1NtHQ9zcTqoIp8ejy6ElLQWBo90tZSlxaD5iu3t24mWK3RA_JblmDqspo 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. https://www.theherbprof.com/Index.htm Oxidative stress contributes to chronic illness and cancer. You will hear it mentioned often. There is a test for oxidative stress. It is the Urinary 8-OHdG test. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0009898103004534?via%3Dihub 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. https://www.healthnutnews.com/more-doctors-confessing-to-intentionally-diagnosing-healthy-people-with-cancer-to-make-money/ 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. https://www.nature.com/articles/483531a https://www.hindawi.com/journals/ijcb/2013/639401/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5788971/ 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. http://www.detoxifynow.com/real_cause_of_cancer.html https://vaccineresistancemovement.org/?p=3729 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.

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. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2213231712000110 http://stopcancerfund.org/pz-diet-habits-behaviors/antioxidants-and-cancer-risk-the-good-the-bad-and-the-unknown/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3694988/ 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. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4684645/ https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1002/path.4665 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. https://www.omicsonline.org/bile-acids-promoters-or-carcinogens-in-colon-cancer-2157-2518.1000101e.php?aid=1491 https://academic.oup.com/ajcn/article/102/4/881/4564676 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5316202/ 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. http://www.jlr.org/content/49/4/763.long http://www.jimmunol.org/content/198/2/572 This study is pretty much the same they see the symptom instead of the cause they blame the bile acid and not what is causing the bile acid to do what it is. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2656903/ https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1046/j.0014-2972.2001.00938.x Issues with bile and cholesterol can be caused by inflammaton, infection, or high oxalates among other things. If not addressed it can cause gall bladder disease. This can lead to cancer. http://journal.waocp.org/?sid=Entrez:PubMed&id=pmid:24377514&key=2013.14.11.6257 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. https://jeffreydachmd.com/2016/05/cancer-as-a-parasitic-disease/ https://www.nature.com/articles/bjc2016213 http://jvi.asm.org/content/75/9/4420.long https://rense.com//general95/lymph.html http://www.bloodjournal.org/content/107/8/3034.long?sso-checked=true https://www.karger.com/Article/Abstract/108920 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3248167/ https://www.nih.gov/news-events/news-releases/seven-substances-added-14th-report-carcinogens?fref=gc https://thetruthaboutcancer.com/polio-vaccine-cancer/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5207746/ Even now you see studies showing an antibiotic reduces cancer. Problem with that is it disrupts our gut bacteria which is known to cause cancer. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6045618/ 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. https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/fullarticle/184898 Substanc P can promote the growth of cancer. http://www.hh.um.es/Abstracts/Vol_29/29_7/29_7_881.htm High estrogen levels can promote breast cancer.

Studies have since shown that a fever reduces cancer. There are natural products that will induce a mild fever. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5704862/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3312698/ 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. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5793177/ http://www.budwigcenter.com/full-body-hyperthermia-natural-treatment/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4300235/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5096652/ Inhibiting deacetylase can restore the bodies ability to fight cancer.

High substance P levels have been linked to cancer. http://mcr.aacrjournals.org/content/11/3/294 mTOR inhibition has been shown to fight cancer. mTOR homeostasis is very important.

This shows the importance of homeostasis because mesotrypsin lowers SPINK1 levels so if you have a disease where you need to incerease SPINK1 you may approach it by decreasing mesotrypsin which is know to cause cancer. Now if we over do it we risk increasing SPINK1 levels to high and increasing our risk of causing cancer. Homeostasis should be the goal. http://clinchem.aaccjnls.org/content/62/3/449 http://www.jbc.org/content/early/2003/09/24/jbc.M310301200.full.pdf This shows the importance of reducing oxidative stress and inflammation because it can cause an imbalance in all the above mentioned. http://www.isca.in/MEDI_SCI/Archive/v1/i2/2.ISCA-IRJMedS-2013-004.pdf https://www.spandidos-publications.com/ol/7/6/1747 Oxidative stress can deplete MrsA which can make cancer more agressive.

Excess IDO can inhibit the immune system causing cancer and a deficiency can cause an over active immune response which can cause cancer. Treg cells help kept things at homeostasis. I posted on the immune system and how to raise Treg cell levels. A deficiency in IDO can lead to fibrosis.

Things that may help.

This is a website of people who beat cancer and the methods they used.


Information on spontaneous remission of cancer.


Another website with information about cancer.


Functional foods and their role in cancer.










Vitamins and cancer.


Many recommend Omega 3 oils to help with cancer. The problem with that if a person has porphyria or Pyrrole disorder fats will make them ill. Those should be corrected before adding Omega 3s to the diet to prevent getting discourage from the negative effects of the fats. This is the part of healing that frustrates me. Instead of addressing what is causing their intolerance to a food they will just avoid the food which prevents them from healing.


Palmitoylethanolamide is effective against many types of chronic illness. It has been shown to help with cancer.



3-bromopyruvate helps stop the Warburg effect which helps stop the growth of cancer. Cancer is usually acidic and creates it’s own micro acidic environment. Since 3-BrPA is an alkalyzing agent which may contribute to it’s effectiveness but it also causes metabolic issues. The problem with allopathic medicine is they do not treat the cause so cancer is bound to occur again. Often times they declare things a success even though the patient dies. For example the patient in this case study died at 18 years old. https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s10863-012-9417-4




3-BrPA may not be for those who have high levels of ROS because it raises ROS.


What I have noticed is that the herbs that have a dual effect of fighting pathogens and reduces inflammation seem to be the most effective against cancer.

Ginger has been shown to reduce Cancer.



Feverfew reduces cancer. If taken for more then a week it causes toxic withdrawal syndrome that results in severe headaches.


Infection is known to be mistaken for cancer and has also been shown to stimulate it’s growth. But some types of infection actually reduce cancer.


Self Heal helps reduce cancer.




Monkey head mushroom helps with cancer.


Green teas has been shown to fight cancer but taking for too long can have negative health effects like causing the body to produce histamines.



Oxidative Stress can contribute to cancer. Ketogenic diets help reduce oxidative stress.




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.




Chronic illness can lead to cancer. A lack of or imbalance of gut bacteria can cause many types of chronic illness from diabetes to mental illness.







BT Toxin in genetically modified foods have the ability to cause leukemia.


H Pylori is commensal and protects us but there is a species of H Pylori that is pathogenic and it often get confused with the commensal one it can lead to cancer.


Polyphenols reduce oxidative stress and help fight cancer in many other ways.


Endogenous cannaboids help fight cancer. . Sorry I only have abstracts but it will show the direction they are going.




Incereasing endogenous cannabinoids.




This is a good article on the cannabinoid system.


A-pinene a cannabinoid found in pine has been shown to fight cancer.


Cannibis can have many side effects.


Cannabinoids can reduce some cancer. I honestly was skeptic about cannabis but have seen many many studies validating it’s effectiveness. I even look for opposing studies and could not find any. Only one involving smoking cannibis.














Cyclotides found in foods like squashes, violets and the bedstraw family have been shown to fight cancer.




Bedstraw also known as cleavers.


Medium chain fatty acids help fight cancer.



Purslane is a super food it has most nutrients needed by the body. It helps fight cancer in many ways including by modulating the antioxidant system and reducing inflammation.



Antihistimes in some instances can reduce cancer. But reducing histamines to low can also cause cancer. Homeostasis should always be the goal.


Burdock helps with cancer by reducing toxins and is and antioxidant.


Cannabiol can inhibit cancer but this does not mean it inhibits all cancer. Some cancers can increase with cannabinoid use.


Fucoidan can inhibit cancer it is found in brown seaweed. It is high in sulfur so if someone had high sulfite levels or sulfation issues, problems with the CBS or BH4 pathways it would most likely increase their cancer because it would add to the toxic levels of sulfites in the body.



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.



Astaxanthin found in krill oil has many health benefits. It has been shown to help fight cancer.



Astaxanthin really helps naked mice….lol


Noon seems to be the best time to get sunlight.


Nutrition and how it effects our chances of getting skin cancer.

Rosemary contains carnosic acid which fights cancer and many other illnesses. Fisetin in found in many fruits and plants. It has been shown to fight many types of illness.



Small doses of vitamin A reduces cancer, high doses increases cancer risk.


Self Heal helps with cancers caused by high estrogen levels.


Phytochemicals found in custard apples inhibit Plasminogen activator inhibitor-1. PAI-1 is found to be high in metabolic disease, inflammatory diseases that cause thrombosis and fibrosis. It has also been found to be high in some types of cancer. Angiotensin II increases PAI-1 there are natural ACE inhibitors that may also help reduce PAI-1.


Japanese honeysuckle which is the one with the white and yellow flowers helps with chronic illness by reducing oxidative stress and inflammation.



How many spices reduce cancer. They help balance the immune system , reduce inflammation and give us micronutrients.



Coffee reduces the risk of cancer, unfortunately glyphosate has been found to be a contaminate in some coffee and it is carcinogenic through it’s effects on our Cytochrome P450 enzymes, our gut and it’s effects on our hormones so this may not be true now.


Biacalin is found in sculletaria, fleabane, plantain herb and a few other plants. It has amazing healing benefits and has been shown to help reduce cancer.



Curcumin is a natural Histone deacetylase inhibitor but should be used with caution , it chelates iron and could cause anemia.


Aceroside found in maple syrupt inhibits deacetylase.


HDAC inhitors effects on health.


Diet and phytochemicals effects on DNA.


Globe Artichoke inhibits cancers.


Lotus seed has many health benefits. It helps fight cancer.



Moringa is another plant I would consider a super food. It helps fight cancer by helping the body achieve homeostasis.




Ellagic Acid , helps reduce cancer.



Dandelion had been shown to be very effective against cancer. I believe it is because it does so many beneficial things. It detoxes , it also stimulates DIG1 what will detox many farm chemicals. It provides the body with many nutrients needed for healing and it helps balance the immune system.



Feverfew contains pathenolide which can induce cell death in cancer. Feverfew is addictive and if taken for a long period of time it will cause toxic withdrawal symptoms which can result in very very severe headaches. It is very effective at fighting infections like the common could and the flu.


Beta-Glucan found in many mushrooms improve cell to cell communication and improve immune function which helps the body to fight cancer.






Pomegranate has been shown to reduce cancer.


Oyster mushroom can help fight cancer.


Bacopa is amazing for healing, it is really great at healing blog vessels. It has been shown to help with cancer.


Sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) has been shown to inhibit cancer growth.




Fasting inhibits cancer growth.



Fermented wheat germ inhibits cancer growth by depriving it of sugar and stimulating the immune system to attack it.


Fulvic Acid found in water that has run off from decaying plant matter, organic blackstrap molasses and certain clays can inhibit cancer. It has also been shown to restore cellular autophagy. Some clay sources of fulvic acid can be high in heavy metals.


Soursop helps fight cancer it has also been found to help with hypertension.


Luteolin is another flavonoid that is amazing at it’s ability to heal. It is found in bright colored fruit and vegetables and is very high in the skins of cooked tomatoes.


Honey bee venom reduces cancer. Now this one I set out to prove it was crazy but each study I looked at showed similar results.



Houttuynia helps with cancer.


Paw Paw helps fight cancer.


Mugwort and Wormwood are chemically similar. They have amazing healing properties and are very effective against cancer.




This is something I noticed. Plants that are good at killing pathogens also have anticancer properties.


Icariside II found in a number of plants has been found to be effective against cancer by inhibiting mTOR.



Plantain is another herb with many healing abilities. It has been shown to reduce cancer.


Vitamin D is important in preventing cancer. There is a lot of debate as to what the highest amounts to be taken should be. I have read many research papers and in doses higher then about 4000 IU it cause oxalates to form. Oxalates are very damaging to the body and can cause cancer. Sources of vitamin D for vegetarians are mushrooms.


Sweetsop helps fight cancer.


Usually I do not list mistletoe but there were many studies showing it’s effectiveness towards cancer. It can be toxic though so I am not sure the benefits a person would get from mistletoe.


Phytate help fight cancer.


I am listing Pakong-Tulog because it has many health benefits including fighting cancer. Though many will not have access to it.


Gymena has many health benefits including inhibiting cancer growth.


I am not big on pharmaceuticals but Dichloroacetate when used in low doses seems to help with many types of chronic illness including cancer. The problem is the pharmaceutical companies are all about the money so would promote large dose usage to increase profits so as they do with other pharmaceuticals they would recommend extremely high doses.




Plants in the mallow family have protective effects on the body.


Cat’s Claw helps fight cancer.


There is a therapy for cancer Antineoplastons taken from urine. I have seen nothing in the studies indicating they are effective or even safe. In my opinion they are useless until I see research proving otherwise.


Sulforaphane found in crudiferous vegetables, onions, garlic and many other foods can ihibit cancer. But those who have high sulfite levels or have CBS or BH4 issues may become sicker and become more prone to cancer. Things like candida, gut dysbiosis, metabolic issues, nutrient deficiencies. High heavy metal levels in the body especially mercury and toxins like glyphosate or glufosinate can cause all those issues I mentioned. So this shows the importance of correcting those issues.


Elder Berry helps fight cancer.


Rose Hips has many benefits which would help reduce the risk of cancer.


Sculletaria contains wogonin and biacelein which have been shown to be effective against cancer.



Paeony root helps with cancer.


Trelahose helps with chronic illness including cancer. The way it addresses chronic illnesses is through a number of positive changes that occur in the body when we consume it. Many mushrooms are high in trelahose. There are studies that claim it makes C dif more pathogenic. I was not impressed by the research or convinced by it. GMOs do increase the pathogenicity of C Dif. They never considered that in their research so to me it is invalid because most of our food supply contains GMOs.



Vitamin K deficiency can inhibit cancer growth which stands to reason because babies that receive the vitamin K shot have a much higher incidence of cancer. This should not be mistaken for vitamin K3 which is much different.


Willow leaves reduce inflammation so it stands to reason they would help with cancer.


Mammograms are not effective and there are safer and more effective test.


Epimedium contains icariside 2 which inhibits mTOR.


Milk thistle inhibits mTOR.


Butryrate found in butter from grass feed beef and produced by our gut bacteria when we eat fiber protects our mitochondria during oxidative stress.

Oligosaccharrides help our gut bacteria produce butyrate.


Since amyloid is part of the immune system and cancer can be caused by immune dysfunction it stands to reason that amyloid would be tied to cancer. Have a blog post on amyloid that could compliment this information. http://www.oncotarget.com/index.php?journal=oncotarget&page=article&op=view&path%5B%5D=7103&path%5B%5D=20217 http://www.oncotarget.com/index.php?journal=oncotarget&page=article&op=view&path[]=2990&pubmed-linkout=1 https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0006291X1202390X?via%3Dihub Crab apple leaves help fight cancer.

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.


The main causes of tachycardia, bradycardia, and excess blood clotting are vaccine injury, drug injury especially fluoroquinolones and eating foods high in glyphosate. Most cardiologist do not know how to recognize tachycardia or myocarditis on an Ekg and the ones that do will brush it off as something minor but it is a very serious health problem that can result in death.  Damage to the cardiovascular system is a very serious problem with these new Covid vaccines and many a saying their doctors are refusing to report the injury to their hearts caused by the vaccine. It is very important to get copies of your medical records and keep all records of your doctors visits. They have made it very very difficult to report adverse reactions to the Covid vaccines.

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 have 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 villainizing 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.


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.









For those who prefer watching videos.


This is a more in depths discussion on cholesterol.


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


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


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.


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.


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.


Inflammation is the main cause of heart disease and chronic illness.



It is very important to understand oxidative stress which can be caused by many things, and it’s role in lipid metabolism.




This is probably some of the best advice I have seen on lowering blood pressure.


Inflammation is a sign the body is trying to heal itself and we need to help it.


There are many lies about cholesterol that are not backed by science. Most modern medicine is based on observation and not science.


The brain needs cholesterol , cholesterol deficiency causes mental illness.



I can literally post hundreds of studies showing the negative impact vaccines have on the heart.



One of the worlds most well known heart surgeons has been speaking out about the true cause of heart disease.


This is part of the reason heart diseases has taken a dramatic rise in the U.S. Those who consume less cholesterol have a higher mortality rate and a better chance of developing chronic illness.






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.





People who take statins has a higher mortality rate.


They claim statins protect against cancer but that has proven not to be true.


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.


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. I know that is not an accurate term to describe it but it is the nearest thing I can think of to convey what it does to the brain.




This is why statins cause muscle damage and muscle loss.



Statins have even been found to cause diabetes which we know contributes to heart disease. In many instances they have been found to be of no benefit.




Statins have been found to promote arteriosclerosis.


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.




Reducing oxidative stress reduces hypertension.



Fasting reduces LDL but should be researched and done correctly. Also those with type 1 diabetes can experience Ketoacidosis from fasting so it is not for everyone.


Pheylpyrucic Acid is produced when fasting and it helps in repairing the heart.


Often times it is allopathic medications themselves can cause the heart disease. Fluroquinolones are one of the worst and can cause damage throughout the body that you may never recover from.



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.




POTS is often times drug induced.


POTS can also be caused by damage to the NMDA receptor. I have posted on things that may help with that.


These are some things that helped with my POTS.


Tick born illness





Many of these things can cause mast cell activation syndrome which can also cause POTS and other cardio vascular diseases.




There are many illnesses mast cell activation syndrome causes and usually when someone is experiencing heart disease they experience many of these illnesses also.


Vaccine induced.





The flu vaccine has the highest rate of vaccine injury but at the rate things are going the HPV vaccine may surpass it. The injury from the HPV vaccine is much more sever.


If you do not reduce inflammation you will not get your blood pressure back to homeostasis. The benefits of this pharmaceutical was exaggerated as usual but it demonstrates the importance of reducing inflammaton.


Antidiuretic Hormone is involved in the regulation of blood pressure.


If you have heart arrhythmia this is a good source of information that may help. Dehydration is very common in those with high blood pressure. Most do not even recommend drinking more water to those with high blood pressure. This article surprised me and mentioned it which I found refreshing to see someone who really gets it.


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.







You can medicate the gut bacteria with naturals to prevent TMAO formation.


There are many other ways an imbalance in our gut bacteria can cause heart disease.



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.




This is a list of nutrients that help with heart disease and it discussed why they work. It helps to put into perspective some of the causes of heart disease.



Heart attack occur more in the winter because of vitamin D deficiency. Guess where Eskimos got their vitamin D. From the animal fat they consumed.


The way we breath can effect our blood pressure. Breathing deeply can lower blood pressure. If we have acidosis we will breath quickly and shallow to reduce CO2 levels which will reduce the acid levels. If we have alkalosis we may breath deeply and very slowly almost to the point were take very few breaths per minute. We must address the issues that are causing the alkalosis or acidosis before breathing will be effective.



There are many things that can cause high C Reactive levels in the blood. This causes inflammation. Tick born illness and many other infections can cause it. Toxins like glyphosate can cause high C Reactive levels and it has been found to be high in much of the food we consume. Also heavy metals and vaccine injury can cause high C Reactive levels. So it is very important to address these things to get our C Reactive levels down.


Leaky gut and our gut bacteria effect the health of our whole body. It raises histamines which cause hypertension or carditis.






How Glyphosate effects the gut and health of the body.







I have posted on sulfites and sulfation. If we have high sulfite levels or we have sulfation issues it can cause heart disease. Sulfur is very important for regulating many things throughout the body including hormones and blood pressure. Glyphosate, glufosinate and mercury inhibit sulfation.


This can effect BH4 levels. Green Tea raises BH4 levels but must be used in moderation because over use can raise histamine levels.




This is talking about genetic issues and autoimmune disorders that can cause heart disease. We know many of these negative epigenetic changes are caused by man and can be corrected. Most autoimmunity is induced by man with toxins like glyphosate, heavy metals and vaccines. We must address those to correct the cardiovascular issues.


If you look at the stats and the rise in chronic illness it coincides with the introduction of GMOs and glyphosate. So much so that it is too much to be a coincidence.


Trans Fats found in fast food and processed food causes cardiovascular disease.


Discussion of nutrients and their effects on blood pressure and what deficiencies do to the cardiovascular system.



Vaccine inujury, mycoplasma infection, heavy metals , and farm chemicals can cause autoimmunity. This can lead to antiphospholipid syndrome which leads to many forms of chronic illness..


If you show sign of antiphopholipid syndrome it is very important to prevent thrombosis.


Those with cardiovascular disease have been found to be low in certain nutrients which causes high homocysteine levels.



Lipocalins involvement in strokes and heart disease.


Could not find much research on how to increase relaxin but it has been shown to help with liver fibrosis, COPD and cardiovascular disease, In reduces inflammation.



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.




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.


This paper reviewed the research on fats and their effects on the body. Omega 3s help reduce heart disease including myocarditis. But there is times only fats can cause problems. If a person has pyrrole issues which can be a symptom of porphyria they will have problems with fats. It is a very serious health problem that can be corrected with the correct nutrients and lifestyle changes. I have posted in it. There are a number of types of Omega fatty acids. The American diet is high in Omega 6 which has been shown to cause inflammation. Omega 3 Fatty acids should be at a higher level then Omega 6 in the body. Because they are involved in the regulation of many metabolic pathways, consuming too much Omega 6 can cause many health problems. Metabolic syndrome is a cause of diabetes and heart disease.




Histidine helps protect the heart. This may seem confusing but if you read my post on high and low histamines it will explain. Histidine deficiency can cause many negative health effects. Aromatase enzyme are important for it’s proper function. Glyphosate, glufosinate and some foods can inhibit aromatase which can raise ammonia levels in the body resulting in alkalosis. Histidine is important in our response to stress.




Now the bad and it shows the importance of nutrients and homeostasis. A folate deficiency (not folic acid it is toxic) can raise histidine levels which can cause histamine levels to go too high resulting in chronic illness. So the most important thing is to focus on balancing nutrient and histidine levels.


This is a good article explaining histamines in depth.


Proteinuria can be brought on by many things. It can be corrected but could be a sign there are high sulfite levels or sulfation issues. If not addressed it can lead to diabetes, heart disease and even death.


How our lifestyle can effect our heart and our sex life.


Stress cannot be avoided that is why it is necessary to work on learning to handle stress and not let it overwhelm us. It has a very bad impact on on our health especially the cardiovascular system.


The ketogenic diet has been shown to help with oxLDL but I do not believe in staying on one specific diet. The body was made to consume a variety of foods and once homeostasis is achieved I feel it is better to start adding other types of foods to the diet.


How angiotensin contributes to heart disease.


Now on the other side of the coin too much potassium can cause problems that is why we should always focus on homeostasis.


Endothelins role in cardiovascular disease and how to decrease them.


Plants or Herbs that may help with heart disease.

Aldosterone though not an herb regulates water and electrolyte balance in the body which can have dramatic effects on our blood pressure and the heart. Sodium Bicarbonate in the mineral water helps with hypertension also.




Black Sativa is a super food. It could be listed in just about any healing remedies from diabetes to mental illness. It also helps with high blood pressure and carditis.



Butyric Acid also known as butyrate is great for healing throughout the body. It is produced by our gut bacteria when we eat fiber, consume milk products and certain carbohydrates. It is needed by the brain and helps fight inflammation and oxidative stress. When deficient in it we can develop leaky gut which can lead to heart disease.



PQQ is another nutrient that has amazing healing properties. It even helps heal neurological damage.


Okra is another plant with amazing healing properties. It is in the mallow family, most plants in the mallow family have amazing health benefits.



Cissus has too many benefits to list.


Peas are ACE inhibitors but you have to make sure they are organic. The farm chemicals on non organic cause heart disease.



Rice bran is an antioxidant and is an ACE inhibitor.


Sunflower seeds reduce the chances of heart disease. You have to make sure they are from a source that is grown in soil that is not contaminated. They are very good at pulling radiation from the soil. If you sprout them they are more nutritious.


Nattokinase thins the blood , it helps with thrombosis by preventing blog clots.





Gingko inhibits bradykinin which contributes to tachycardia. But I have seen a study that showed that renal damage starts to occur if taken for an extended amount of time. It really helped me with my brain fog but I had a strange reaction to it. The first couple of days I got a really bad headache when I took it. But I continued to take it and on about the fourth day I could feel my brain fog starting to lift. I still take it once in a while to help keep the brain fog from coming back but until I am certain of the toxicity I will not take it often. I have only seen one study on the toxicity and there was a lot of data missing leaving me uncertain if it was the gingko that caused the renal damage. Sophora root helps with just about any type of heart disease. It really helped my carditis.


Be pollen is a supper food. It has many proteins that the body can easily use without having to work hard to use. It also has many minerals the body needs. Hence it reduces inflammation which causes arteriosclerosis.


Burdock reduces inflammation and oxidative stress. Diabetes and heart disease can be caused by oxidative stress and inflammation which leads to metabolic disorders. Burdock also helps with metabolic disorders.


Mugwort raises GABA which causes relaxation and is a calcium channel blocker. They claim thujone is toxic but it takes a very high amount to become toxic. They often do things like that , and I believe it is to deter people from healing so they can keep them on the allopathic hamster wheel. Yeah they tell people to take high levels of iron which is toxic and most in the U.S. have been found to have levels of iron that are too high which causes oxidative stress. Mugwort which has the same phytochemicals as wormwood reduces hypertension.




Rooibos is another amazing herb. It reduces inflammation and prevents thrombosis. It also kills many pathogens especially in the lungs. It also improves breathing.


Bacopa helped me a lot it is great for healing the blood vessels and for reducing inflammation and oxidative stress. This also reduces symptoms of carditis.



Berberine reduces inflammation, heals the liver and fights many pathogens. It helps lower blood pressure because of it’s healing properties.


Virgin olive oil has many healing abilities and inhibits our gut bacterias ability to produce TMAO so it reduces blood pressure and risk of heart disease.


Honeyberry a type of honesuckle is great for healing and preventing cardiovascular disease.


This is a type of fleabane. I have looked at the phytochemicals of the various species of fleabane it they are very similar . Most in the fleabane family have the same health benefits which are numerous. They help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.

Low oxygen levels can be caused by acidosis, infection, oxidative stress , COPD and many other health issues. This causes high blood pressure.


PEA helps fight the common cold and flu because it reduces inflammation so would also help hypertension since inflammation causes hypertension.



Maca root seems to inhibit N-acyletholamine acid which would increase PEA levels.


Oxazolidone inhibits NAAA increasing PEA levels.


Antibiotics derived from penicillin inhibit NAAA unfortunately I am allergic to penicillin.


Metabolic syndrome causes an number of illnesses and hypertension and cardiac disease is a few of them. This is a list of plants and their effects are metabolic syndrome.


Pomegranate has been shown to be an ACE inhibitor. I have found more benefits from eating the seeds then drinking the juice.


Astaxantan helps reduce oxidative stress and inflammation. It is high in krill oil.


Prickly Lettuce also known as Opium Lettuce helps protect the heart but must be used in moderation because it has a chemical in it similar to opium but is not addictive.


Saffron is another one of those herbs that has amazing healing abilities. It helps with carditis and hypertension.


Self heal helps fight viruses, inflammation and oxidative stress. It is an Nrf2 activator so it would help with Nrf2 issues which would help with many forms of chronic illness.



Purslane is a super food, it contains almost all the nutrients needed by the body. It has been found to help with heart disease.


Garlic helps with cardiovascular disease. You have to make sure you do not have high sulfite levels or sulfation issues. If you do it will make you worse.


Wild violet is one of my favorite to eat. It has great anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.


Flaxseed has many healing properties because it has Omega 3 in it. It must be crushed because we cannot digest it.


Grape seed extract is another that has many amazing healing abilities and protects the cardiovascular system. The only draw back with grape seed extract is that it is high in resveratrol which give it many healing abilities but resveratrol can activate the hepatitis virus so those with hepatitis my want to avoid it and use other herbs that will prevent inflammation and thrombosis.


There are many plant sources of things that help with cardiovascular disease.



Paeonia root helps prevent thrombosis.


Corn silk is another thing that has many health benefits including preventing heart disease.


Camu Camu has many healing abilities so helps with cardiovascular disease. It raises GABA levels which helps with sleep and relaxation.

Lycopene is great for healing one of the best sources of it are cooked tomatoe skins.


Thiamine deficiency can lead to hypertension and chronic illness.


Those who are G6PD deficient or have certain metabolic issues would get ill from the foods that contain thiamine so they may have to supplement thiamine until they have corrected those issues.


Hawthorne leaves and fruit have many health benefits. They help with hypertension and carditis. They have also been found to fight many forms of cancer.







White malberry helps with hypertension.


Nattokinase helps prevent thrombosis. Thrombosis can be a result of infection especially tick born illness and vaccine injury which causes antiphospholipid syndrome. This can result in cardiovascular disease.





This is how nattokinase prevents heart disease.


Rooibos also helps prevent thrombosis.


Arjuna inhibits thrombosis which helps with cardiovascular disease.


There are many other naturals that help inhibit thrombosis.


I have posted on HSP70 it prevents thrombosis without causing excessive bleeding.


Tenascan-C is needed for heart repair. But if it is too high it can cause health problems. Homeostasis should be the goal.



Tenascan-C is high in COPD


High tenascan-c levels increases risk of cancer.

Tenascan-C is high in COPD


High tenascan-c levels increases risk of cancer.



Heat Shock Proteins and their effects on our health.

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

HSP70 has it’s benefits if done in moderation. Always keep in mind homeostasis should be the goal.

HSP70 is found to be high in those with skin disorders. So those with dermititis would want to reduce HSP70



HSP70 redulates angeotensin II, it reduces inflammation in the renal system but if a person is deficient in vitamin D it could cause inflammation in the cardiovascular system.


HSP 70 is essential for preventing salt induced hypertension.


HSP70 helps regulate the antioxidant system.


HSP70 helps regulate cellular redox.


This is how selenium, vitamin C and sodium bicarbonate reduce oxidative stress by increasing HSP.



Protects from neurological disorders.


HSP70 can prevent thrombosis (blood clotting) without causing anemia.


Increasing HSP70 also helps with liver disease cause by B-thalassemia which causes liver fibrosis.


Good information on ways of increasing or decreasing HSP70


Heat shock protein protects the cells from oxidative stress so can actually protect cancer. In this case it would probably be beneficial to reduce HSP70. Homeostasis should be the goal.




Sulfation is very improtant in the regulation of HSP. If we have sulfation issues or high sulfite levels to need to be addressed for HSP to function properly. Sulfation issues also effect the Nrf2 pathways which is also responsible for HSP homeostasis. Nrf2 is the master regulator of the antioxidant system.


Induction of HSP70 may help with Lou Gehrig’s disease.


HSP70 protects the liver. They claim fructose increases HSP70 , that may be true for unprocessed fructose found in fruits and vegetables but processed fructose has been found to have a severe negative impact on health.


Heat shock protein is stimulated during exercise. Heat shock protein has been shown to reduce hot flashes caused by menopause.


mTOR homeostasis is very important for the proper regulation of heat shock proteins.

Thunder god vine inhibits hsp90


Green tea inhibits HSP90 which helps with interstitial cystitis but if you drink too much it will increase histamine levels which would have the opposite effect.



Inhibiting HSP90 also helps with Lupus.


HSP90 is needed for many cellular processes so homeostasis should always be the goal.



Diabetes, type 1, type 2 and type 3c.

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

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. There is a test that can check for excess oxidative stress. Excess inflammation and toxins can also cause chronic illness. Identifying the root cause and correcting it is very important. Microbial imbalance in the gut have been linked to diabetes, Alzheimer’s and many other forms of chronic illness.


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.


One thing we must get rid of is believing that our genes are written.


Dynamics of B-cell insulin secretion.


How B Cells are destroyed.


Leptin can help with diabetes. I do not like Yales research it is usually conditionally bias and even flawed but I have seen research to back this one.



Increasing Leptin sensitivity can reduce body weight.




Role of Pancreas


Type 2 diabetes is insulin resistance.


In type 1 diabetes the body does not produce enough insulin.


Thyroid issues and Addison’s disease is common in type 1 diabetes which are symptoms of sepsis or endotoxemia.

Our food supply has been found to be heavily contaminated with pesticides and herbicides. They have been found to contribute to diabetes.



Medication have effects on our gut bacteria which can lead to diabetes.



If the gut bacteria are not replace it can lead to NAFLD.


Leaky gut cause form toxins or even stress and inflammation can lead to diabetes and even mental illness.


This is why prebiotics have been found to aid with diabetes.



Many toxins and drugs can destroy our commensal virome part of our microbiome. Our bodies need these viruses and so do our gut bacteria to keep us healthy.



Probiotics may be needed in diabetics.



Babies born to mothers through C-section and who have taken antibiotics are prone to developing diabetes.


They are finding that exercise and diet have little to do with determining if someone will develop diabetes. Processed food will make us prone to diabetes.



Having an imbalance in gut bacteria causes metabolic issues which can lead to diabetes.

Supplementing with BH4 has been shown to improve diabetes.


Green tea has been found to restore BH4 levels. Drinking green tea should be done in moderation. Drinking it everyday has been found to cause high histamine levels.


Regulating BH4 levels is very improtant.


This study discusses the many issues diabetics were found to have.


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.


Some with MTHFR issues my benefit from increasing folate intake. Read my comment on this post about folic acid because they use it interchangeably and folic acid is bad.


Many do not know the difference between Folate and Folic acid. Folic Acid should be avoided.


Nutrients that help with diabetes.






Herbs that help with diabetes.


I do not recommend high doses of any vitamin it can make things worse. Do things in moderation.


It is very important for diabetics to reduce oxidative stress.

Just as inflammation causes heart disease it can also cause diabetes. Stress also causes inflammation so it stands to reason that it could also cause it.






Paeonia helps with kidney disease caused by diabetes.



Stevia extract also helps protect the kidneys. Stevia the sweetener is different , it must be the extract.


Corns silk is another one that is good for all around healing.


Now if you look at this study they are looking at the symptoms as usual and not the cause when it is clear the cause is inflammation and oxidative stress. So they need to find the cause and address it. Also fatty acid issues can be connected to leaky gut, gut dysbiosis and pyrrole issues which is a symptom of porphyria.


Hibiscus taiwanensi is in the mallow family. I wouldn’t doubt if others of this family have this quality. It helps with type 2 diabetes. Because most in the mallow family have the same benefits.


Bitter melon increases the volume of islet cells in the pancreas but can have side effects.

Bitter melon should be used with caution it can aggevate fatty liver disease.
Addressing metabolic issues helps restore B-cell funtion. I have covered some metabolic issues like sulfation . I have also covered detoxing in some of my post.
Olive oil has been shown to help with metabolic issues found in diabetic mice.
Free Fatty Acid Receptor Agonist help correct diabetes. That is why bitter melon helps it is a FFAR agonist.

Fleabane may help with diabetes. Fleabane has biacelain which has many health benefits.


There are other naturals that have been researched.

Diabetes has been found to be a metabolic disorder. Proteinuria causes neuropathy in diabetes. Those with proteinuria , phenylketonuria or pyrrole issues most likely have porphyria. Those are all symptoms of porphyria which I have posted on.
Flax seed helps with diabetes. It must be crushed the body cannot digest whole flax seed.



Phytic acid helps with insulin resistance.

Those with diabetes have been found to have excess oxidative stress this is why Nrf2 activators can helps some with diabetes.


Nrf2 activators also help prevent damage to the renal system.


Rehmannia is an Nrf2 activator.


Cinnamon is an Nrfw activator.

Feverfew helps with diabetes by reducing inflammation. Taking feverfew for too long can result in severe withdrawal when you quit taking it. I would only take it with colds or when symptoms are very bad.
Mtor signaling is involved in protein homeostasis and is connected to diabetes.
fasting helps restore B-cell and can help with type 1 diabetes. Those with type 1 diabetes can develop ketoacidosis when fasting so should be cautious about this one. If you were to try it I would make sure you had plenty of electrolytes and used glycoproteins or something. I would not do a complete fast. Ketoacidosis is life threatoning. This is a fasting mimicking diet. Fasting should be done intermittently. 

Leaky gut can cause excess mtor activation which causes diabetes. I have posted on healing the gut.
Horny goat weed is an mtor inhibitor so helps with diabetes.
Burdock helps with diabetes.
Sage has been shown to be as effective as metformin against diabetes without the dangerous side effects.

Iron overload can cause diabetes. Lactoferrin helps with iron overload, so does curcumine but if curcumine is taken for too long it can make you anemic because it chelates iron.

It used to be believed that the pancrease cannot regenerate but they have found that it can regenerate.
Even those who have had diabetes for many years still have B-cell function
Fasting is one way to stimulate pancreatic regeneration.
We must make sure we address autoimmune issue to get pancreatic cells to regenerate. I have posted on that also.
Tumeric can help regenerate B-cells. Must be careful using it though it chelates iron and can cause anemia.

Yarrow helps with a lot of things.


Kudzu root is another thing that helps with a lot of things.

This list of plants has sage which is another super herb for healing.


Muscadine grapes help with diabetes.


Canola oil causes diabetes but Omega 3 oils reduce it.


Metabolic, inflammation and infection can cause thrombosis and fibrosis. These are found to be common in diabetes so if someone has diabetes they need to address the cause of the oxidative stress , inflammation or metabolic issues or whatever else is causing the health problems. Diabetes is a symptom not a cause. Allopathic medicine only looks at and treats symptoms they do not address the cause. There is no money in curing. A healthy patient is a lost customer. These are a sign of endothelial dysfunction.



Folate helps with endothelial dysfuncton. They say folic acid, for some reason many medical professionals use the term folate interchangebly with folic acid which most know by now is toxic to the body. I do not know if they are doing it to promote it for better sales or if they are in error or are just doing sloppy science but folic acid can be toxic to the body. Folate is the safe one it is natural.


Activating Sirt1 helps with diabetes.


There are natural Sirt1 activators like resveratrol found in grape seed extract.




Alpha Lipoic acid is a sirt activator.

We should avoid GMOs they have been found to alter the pancrease.
Autoimmune dysfunction has been mistaken for pancreatic cancer.
Emoden is found in buckthorn and Japanese Knotweed. It can stimulate B-cell regenerations.
Herbs that reduce glucose levels stimulate B-Cell growth
Rooibos protects pancreatic cells from cell death. Aspalathus linearis

Symptoms of pancreatitis.

Drinking soda has a dramatic negative impact on the pancreas and can lead to pancreatic cancer. There are many habits we have that negatively impact the pancreas.


It is very important to protect the pancreas because it produces many of the enzymes we need for digestion.


If we do not address the thing that cause metabolic issues. We could develop many health issues because of the impact on the pancreas. This could eventually lead to gall stones.


It is very important to address acidosis , it destroys the pancreas. I have posted on acidosis.

Type 3c diabetes is often misdiagnosed and over looked because it is caused by issues in the brain.



There are biomarkers to distinguish between the two.
Those with type 3c diabetes have been found to be vitamin D deficient.
It is dificult to balance insulin levels in Type 3c diabetes.
Type 3c diabetes is cause by brain issues. Things that help the brain also help Type 3c diabetes.
Type 3c diabetes my contribute to alzheimers.
Habits that are bad for the pancreas.
Symptoms of pancreatitis.
Pancreatitis can lead to diabetes.
Many things including drugs can cause pancreatitis.
Acidosis harms the pancreas. I have posted on acidosis and alkalosis.
Often times IL-35 is increased in those with diabetes and pancreatic cancer.



Heparin cofactor II regulates the homeostasis of IL-12 family. IL-35 is a member of the IL-12 family. Heparin cofactor II has been found to be low in diabetics.
A cells can become B cells.


Phyto therapy for B cells

A1C is not a reliable test



If the diabetes is not addressed it can lead to cancer.


Mast cells activation syndrome has been connected to many chronic diseases including diabetes. I have covered this in my post on autoimmune and how to address it but I may if time permits do a post specifically on mast cells.


Some naturals that may help.




Eggs should be included in a diet for better health.



Chlorine is toxic to the body. Fluoride is a biproduct along with bichlroides and trichlorides which are also very toxic. Drinking water with fluoride in it increases the risk of getting diabetes.


They are getting close to developing new non invasive diagnostic tools for diabetes.


Fiber increases the good gut bacteria which reduces diabetes.



Nicotinomide riboside helps with mitochondrial issues in diabetes.


To get the gut bacteria to remain and thrive we need Akkermansia Munciniphila.


These studies frustrate me. Instead of looking at what is causing the bile issues they are looking at the symptoms and how to resolve them. The symptoms are not the cause. They need to be checking for leaky gut, gut dysbiois, infections , metabolic issues or nutrient deficiencies. Or causes of inflammation they can all effect bile production and reabosorption. Science does not seem to be real anymore they all seem to have tunnel vision shaped by corporate science.


Bile acids are responsible for many things in the body and if it becomes inhibited even our ability to detox will be inhibited and oxidative stress will increase and will will start developing issues with fat digestion.






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.





TMAO increases the risk of diabetes and heart disease, high meat consumption and certain gut bacteria produce TMAO. Grape seed extract, wine and olive oil prevent the gut bacteria from producing TMAO.


Excess CB1 receptor activation can lead to diabetes and liver damage.


Cannabis is a CB1 inhibitor.


Black pepper is a CB1 inhibitor.


Autstralian cowplant is interesting. It helps with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes.


Viral infections protect and can even heal diabetes.


It is very important to reduce stress.


Endothelins can effect the heart and cause insulin resistance.


I stand corrected I guess diet can help control the glycemic index in some.


White malberry helps with insulin resistance.


Beta Glucan helps reverse type 2 diabetes.

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.

Tryptophan this list of foods contained some GMOs and most know the harm they do especdially GMO soy and corn. https://plenteousveg.com/tryptophan-foods/


Phosphatidylserine https://draxe.com/phosphatidylserine/

Theanine found in green tea which should not be consumed everyday.

Chamomille Tea helps https://www.thieme-connect.com/products/ejournals/abstract/10.1055/s-0043-106742?device=mobile&innerWidth=980&offsetWidth=980


Luteolin reduces mast cells. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5441798/


Exercise, I know it may be hard but start out slow so you do not set off muscle spasm.

Repetitive motion like knitting, or doing something with your hands.

Stretching, but go slowly so you do not set off muscle spasms.

Nutmeg reduces substance P but do not use in high doses it can make you hallucinate. It also kills pain but in high doses could cause seizures.


High Substance P levels can make our skin peel and cause gut issues. One of the major causes of high substance P is stress. Probiotics that reduce stress reduces substance P. High substance P causes burning skin , it will get worse at night. The worst burning will be in the scalp and down the spine.



There are many other issues substance P causes like IBS this article gets into more detail. In this article they say not to consume things with potassium. I do not agree , I have clarified why below.


Substance P locks potassium up. Many recommend avoiding potassium. This is not what we want to do, we want to address the problem that is causing it.


Raising GABA levels will help. Wormwood and mugwort increase GABA levels.



Magnesium citrate will alleviate the problems with potassium.


Trichodynia and hair loss.


Infection can also cause high substance P levels.




Blocking mTOR can reduce substance P and reduce the symptoms of interstitial cystitis.




Vaccinations can also cause high substance P levels.


Luteolin can also help with vaccine induced high substance p levels.


High substance P levels is one of the first signs of magnesium deficiency.


Substance P causes interstitial cystitis.


Substance P can cause tendonosis.


High substance P levels can make cancer more aggressive.



Substance P levels are high in those with fibromyalgia.


It can cause brown spots around hair follicles.


Those with high substance P can also cause high androgen levels which will cause hair loss. This will also cause brown spots to form on the skin.


Things that reduce androgen.




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.

The main causes of this now days are tick born illness, vaccine injury and consuming genetically modified foods and other foods high in glyphosate.

Most things like metabolic 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.


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.

problems with the NMDA recptor can cause the immune system to be inhibited


NMDA issues can also have effects on the heart.


There is a connection between the NMDA receptor and pancreatic cancer.


Issues with the NMDA receptors can result in chemical sensitivities.


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.




Vitamin C interacts with the NMDA receptor to reduce pain. Has been shown to help with sciatica.


Most know vaccinations damage the brain.





It is a good idea to learn the symptoms because damage to the NMDA receptor is common in those vaccinated.

MSG also has a negative impact on the NMDA receptors.



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.


Scopolamine found in belladonna can inhibit muscarinic excitability.

Mugwort helps


Tylenol autism.



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.

Folic acid has been linked to cancer. Folate has not.


the gut and cholestokinin



Trypsin inhibitors increase cholecystokinin.


Things that raise GABA like , mugwort, wormwood and rooibos reduces cholecystokinin levels. High estrogen levels cause high cholecystokinin levels. High dopamine levels increases cholecystokinin. High levels of cholecystokinin causes glutamate toxicity and NMDA toxicity.


Potatoes increase cholecystokinin


If not addressed it leads to autism.



Meditation now called nuero feedback can help heal the brain.



There are various meditation technique depending on the desired outcome.



Those who meditate have higher cognitive function and less stress.


Meditation even helps with inflammatory bowel disease. It can turn bad genes off.



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.


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.


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 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.


How Nitric Oxide Species are produced.


Disregulation of NO can cause many health problems from diabetes to cancer.


Though I do not agree with statin use because it does more damage to the body then oxidative stress does, this article has a good summary of Nitric Oxide production and the enzymes that regulate it.


iNos has been implicated in inflammatory bowel disease.


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.


Excess iNOS production can cause anemia.


eNOS issues have been linked to cardiovascular disease, erectile dysfunction, hypertension, diabetes, and obesity.


This is cause by oxidative stress .


Toxins and infection can lead to excess NMDA receptor activation which can lead to nitrosative stress.


Epselen can scavenge peroxynititrite but has not been approved for usage for anything but mental disorders.


Thymoquinone reduces oxidative stress which damages the brain.



Baicalein found in sculletaria and plantain herb protects from peroxynitrite damage.


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.





Inflammation is the major cause of damage from endotoxemia.



Endotoxemia can result in septic shock which results in permanent damage and can be life threatoning.


It increases your risk of mortality.


Hearing loss


Causes many types of illnesses including diabetes and obesity.


It can result in liver damage.


Endotoxemia can result in excessive blood clotting.



Can cause damages to the lungs.


Endotoxemia can make us hyperglycemic.


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.


Many develop phenylketonuria when ill. It must be addressed because phenylalanine is used to protect the brain from damage.


Endotoxemia can damage the heart of not addressed.


How our bodies respond to the inflammation is key to whether we heal, live or become damaged. Metabolic issues contribute to inflammation and is the reason they must be addressed for us to minimize the damage and even to survive.


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.


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.


Omega 3 fatty acids help but if you have porphyria you must address it before you will be able to take oils.


Because endotoxins cause inflammation we must reduce inflammation.


HDL is needed to protect us and can become low during endotoxemia.


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.






Speeds up the healing of wounds and prevents infection.



Protects the renal system from inflammation.




It also protects our bodies from oxidative stress which is the cause of chronic illness.


The many benefits are listed in this study.



It contians biacalein and aucubin. This gives it many healing abilities along with the ability to fight pathogens. Biacalein has been shown to reverse some injury to the cardiovascular system and the lungs.


Contains oligosaccharides (mucilage) which help balance gut bacteria and heal the gut.



The seeds have the most mucilage and really helped heal my gut. The seeds are what most know as physillium.


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.

The key to healing from IC is finding what the triggers were. I do know those who got the Covid vaccine are experiencing IC. Vaccines have been known to cause IC in the past. GMO foods also cause IC from the metabolic, mitochondrial issues and the farm chemicals they spray on them. IC can be caused by infection. Forskolin gets the infection out of tissue but a person still has to kill the infection. Some can have an overgrowth of lactobacillus which is called a cytosolic infection. Many medications especially fluoroquinolones can cause IC. Each has to be addressed by the causes. There is usually more then one factor that leads to IC, it is a synergistic effect of things coming together. But the Covid vaccines seem to be causing IC with no other comorbities.

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.


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.


Interstitial Cystitis can be put in remission. There are many causes l
