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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

This is an example of a bad article. The advice may seem good but they meantion 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 with high sulfur digesting foods will become sicker and develop inflammation and high oxidative stress levels. I have posted on oxidative stress, and sulfation. Oxidative stress causes inflammation and can lead to cardiovascular disease and diabetes.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Endotoxins cause the blood brain barrier to become porous.

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

High endotoxins cause the body to release inflammasomes which activate Gasdermin. Gasdermin causes pyropoptoses. Instead of the cell dying in the normal way through apotosis which give the body a change 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 dibres 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 inhbits 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 and something that needs reduces which would further add to the health problems but that is ok they will find a drug to treat that symptoms also. Allopathic medicine is not about treating the cause but about treating the symptoms. Here is an example here. Resistin protects from the damage of endotoxins and also from the damage statins do. Their solution try to find a way to reduce resistin. Oh great just what a person needs even more health problems.

There are many things that cause inflammation and metabolic issues. This results in mold sensitivity. If you are sensitive to mold it is a symptom not the cause. Most mold the body can detox easily until something goes wrong. There are molds that are dangerous but you would have to breath large quantities of them in directly. The white mold that grows on rotting wood that looks like a spider web is one of those molds. Glucuronidation and sulfation are not mentioned in this article but if they are inhbited 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 not toxic. Vaccinations damage the body. Our bodies are being pushed to the max when it comes to detoxing.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Symptoms of high oxalates.

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

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

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

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

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

Hypoxia can reduce the symptoms of inflammatory bowel diseases.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Notice vaccines increase inflammatory cytokines for quite some time.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.
