How to get off the medical hamster wheel.

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

By the way many things in this list the FDA is trying to ban.

Modern medicine only treats the symptoms and not the cause of illness. There is no profit in treating the cause. This keeps people on a medical hamster wheel believing they cannot heal. Often times modern medicine is the very cause of a person’s illness. When you hear things like the illness is genetic, or they do not know the cause of your illness , it is most likely they caused the illness. I am going to explain the options available including some supplements that may help a person heal.

The united states has some of the highest rates of chronic illness, cancer , diabetes and autoimmunity in the world. Studies have shown up to 80% of the population in the U.S. is taking some form of medication. Those medications require other medications to deal with the side effects of the first medication. Medications do not treat the cause of illness they only treat the symptoms. The U.S. has the highest vaccine rates in the world , vaccines have proven to be very harmful to the body. Diseases such as cancer used to be rare now infants are being born with cancer. It is clear modern medicine gets people on medical hamster wheels.

Medical error is the third leading cause of death. Now combine that with the fact that almost no adverse reactions to medication get reported and only 1% of vaccine adverse reactions get reported. So the number of deaths caused by modern medicine is most likely much higher. Vaccines have caused thousands of documented deaths and that is only the ones that have been documented. It has become clear modern medicine is not making society healthy. Fortunately there is a form of medicine that can help a person to heal and not just treat the symptoms.

Functional medicine treats the cause so instead of being on medications all your life you address what is causing the illness and correct it. I did a blog post about it with information on how to find a functional medicine practitioner. Functional medicine practitioners are more aware of the flawed genetics science and has not been blinded by much of the flawed science produced by the medical industry and pharmaceutical industry. I have provided links at the bottom of the page to resources to help one learn more about functional medicine and to also guide their decisions on how they may be able to approach their healing.

This is not medical advice this is for educational purposes. Do not use this information yourself , find an experienced and reputable functional medicine practitioner. I am going to explain some things to demonstrate the many things that we have that can help a person to heal with the proper guidance.

Recently science has learned that it is not our genes that determine if we get ill or not but it is our exposome (internal and external environment) . The toxins we come in contact with externally effect our health, toxins in our foods especially GMO foods and foods with high farm chemical levels. Stress , vaccines, and trauma can effect our health. Because of over farming and chemicals like glyphosate being spray our food has become deficient in nutrient. The farm chemicals being sprayed are killing the microbes in the soil that help plants absorb nutrients, this makes our food even more deficient in nutrients. Many illnesses including infectious disease can be linked to nutrient deficiencies. For example those who where deficient in things such as vitamin D, zinc and selenium were much more likely to become ill from Covid. Most infections can belinked to a nutrient deficiency. Even many types of infection can be linked to chronic illness.

Science has come to discover that our microbiota throughout our body modulate our genes and metabolic pathways more then our own bodies do. This is why with a knowledgeable person who knows how to use nutrients, plants, microbes and other natural resources can help guide someone to heal from many supposed non curable illnesses such as autoimmunity or diabetes.

There are test that can narrow down the cause by showing the symptoms or even lead directly to the cause. I will now list some test that can be used to help narrow down and identify the cause of illness. If your medical practitioner does not know what these test are then I would recommend you find one that does.

OATS test – organic acids test. Organic acids are excreted in the urine and are products of metabolism. OATS test can help to determine toxins in the body, indicate nutrient deficiencies, and can even identify certain types of infection.

GI Map test – Test microbial balance in the body or microbial deficiencies. Microbial imbalance can cause excess inflammation, gout, arthritis, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and could make someone prone to infection and autoimmune disease. GI Map test can also show hormone imblances and pinpoint digestive issues.

Testing for oxidative stress – Excess oxidative stress can cause the same health issues as inflammation and is very damaging to the body. It can lead to organ and brain damage. Testing for oxidative stress test levels of antioxidant enzymes and for reactive oxygen species or free radicals. The biomarkers that are checked is protective enzymes such as glutathione, total antioxidant capacity, cysteine/ cysteine sulfate ratio, glutathione peroxidase, super oxide dismutase. It looks at triglyceride levels.

Dutch test – hormones effect our sleep, metabolism, heart, cognitive abilities, blood sugar levels, mood, for women it can effect their estrous cycle. Dutch test test cortisol, cortisone, estradiol, estrone, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, melatonin levels. It also test O-OhdG levels which is a marker of oxidative stress.

Comprehensive Blood anyalysis – this checks nutrient levels, c reactive protein levels which is an inflammatory cytokine, homocysteine , full thyroid panel, antibodies test, blood glucose and insulin levels, read blood cells and iron status, urinary tract health, liver and kidney health, parathyroid status.

Testing for CIRS – anyone who is chronically ill, has autoimmunity , diabetes or heart disease most likely has CIRS. CIRS is chronic inflammatory response syndrome. The government calls it Systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS). Because functional medicine diagnoses the whole body they are much better at identifying the cause. Allopathic medicine only identifies the symptoms and can only treat the symptoms of the illness. By identifying the cause and addressing it you can recover instead of being ill all your life.

Some things you may experience that could indicate you have CIRS. Brain fog or confusion, feeling dissociated, difficulty learning and remembering things and many other mental issues. Skin sensitivity , skin burning or tingling. Red eyes , frequent sweats, ice pick like pain, numbness in various areas of the body, coughing, congested nose, frequent tearing, metallic taste in mouth, joint pain or stiffness, muscle pain or stiffness, appetite swings, difficulty regulating body temperature, and vertigo. There are many more symptoms but these are some of the most common.

Next a person would need to be questioned to identify any possible infections or exposures to mold. Then a visual contrast sensitivity test is done. These can usually be done online for about $10 and the results would need to be shared with your practitioner. Then test need to be run.

Human leukocyte Antigen genetic test which I do not agree with because this blames the genes for not being able to detox mold toxins and science has shown most genetics science is severely flawed.

MARCoNS which is a multidrug resistant strain of staphylococcus that is usually acquired in hospitals.

Vasoactive intestinal peptide – it is involved in the regulation of the cardiovascular system, digestion, glygenolysis, pituitary function, and vaginal lubrication.

Melanocyte stimulating hormone – prduced in the pituitary and hypothalamus. It is also produced in the skin when exposed to ultraviolet rays. It reduces inflammation. It also regulates aldosterone.

Transforming Growth Factor Beta 1 (TGF-B1) – Involved in tissue regeneration, immune regulation, involved in the suppression of cancer.

C4a -complement 4a test for autoimmunity and other health problems. High levels usual indicates mold infection or exposure. Some infections will also increase C4a.

Antigliadin (AGA/IgG) – this is used to test for gastrointestinal issues especially celiac.

Adrenocortitropic hormone (ACTH) cortisol – the pituitary regulates the production of cortisol. It measures adrenal and pituitary health. They are involved in the production of steroid hormones.

Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) this plays a role in wound healing, regulating blood pressure, ovulation, menstrual cycle, and pregnancy. Over expression has been link to arthritis, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and many types of cancer.

Antidiuretic hormone (ADH/osmolity) – regulates water levels in the body. A deficiency causes excess thirst and can cause excess urination. Excess causes headache, nausea, and vomiting.

Matrix metallopeptide 9 (MM9) – also known as gelatinase elevated levels have been linked to arthritis, autoimmunity, cardiovascular disease and ischemia.

Since the science is discovering that our microbiome modulate our genes and metabolic pathways more then our bodies do they are developing new test to get better understanding of a persons health status and what microbes they may need to increase or reduce to achieve and maintain health. These test are not available yet but seem to be proving to be very effective.

One test is Microbe (MESA)- set enrichment analysis test. It measures or test host microbiome interactions.

https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/33293650/

Microbelink is used to measure host microbe interaction and it’s role in disease.

https://www.mdpi.com/2073-4409/9/5/1278?fbclid=IwAR0K5nqsjo_pCfcxL75gTeOw38B0XxHLC77-GHxtoo1wZpifaFwGXETwsTI

These are just a few things that a functional medicine practitioner may use to help someone heal.

Now I will discuss some of the microbes available and how they effect our bodies:

Lactobacillus DR7 Reduces inflammation, improves cognition and memory. It upregulates tryptophan-serotonin pathways and reduces tryptophan -kyneurine pathway. This increase the hormones in the brain that helps us to deal with stress and helps promote happiness.

Many microbes help to prevent infection , for example Lactobacillus Rhamnosus GG and Bifidobacterium Lactis help prevent Picornavirus infection and the flu.

Most Bifidobacteria reduces risk of nasal infection. Bofidiobacteria help prevent virus infection and some Lactobacillus do especially Lactobacillus acidophilus. Many who got very ill with Covid were found to be deficient in Bifidobacteria.

Lactobacillus Rhamnosus has been found to help prevent the flu.

Lactobacillus Slivarius, Lactobacillus Brevis, and Lactobacillus planatarum help prevent Herpes simplex 2 infections.

Those who had these microbes were found to be more resistant to viral infection including HIV and women who contained these were found to be resistant to vaginal infection.

Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus fermentum, Lactobacillus Planatarum, Lactobacillus brevis, Lactobacillus jensii, Lactobacillus casei, Lactobacillus catenaforme, Lactobacillus delbruckiii and Lactobacillus Salivarius.

Some species of microbes reduces the risk of cancer such as some species of Bifidobacteria, butyrate producing bacteria such as Clostridium Spp. Lactobacillus crispatus helps prevent cervical cancer.

Some microbes prevent dermatitus such as Lactobacillus rhamnosus, Lactobacillus casei, and Lactobacillus Fermentum.

Some can help reduce inflammatory bowel pain such as Bifidobacterium breve, and Bifidobacterium longhum.

Abdominal distention is when air or fluid accumulate in the abdomen causing it’s expansion (bloating), it can also cause flatulence. These microbes can help reduce the symptoms. Bifidobacterium breve, Bifidobacterium infantis, Lactobacillus casei, Lactobacillus planatarum.

Short chain fatty acid producing microbes have been found to help reduce this. Lactobacillus acidophilus have been found to reduce high LDL levels.

The list of microbes goes on and on. Some have been found to prevent obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and others have been found to prevent autoimmunity. So far there are around 1500 microbes known to be a part of the microbiota in humans.

Now I will discuss nutrients.

Magnesium helps prevent high blood pressure, prevents depression, improves sleep quality. It is needed for most metabolic processes in the body. Because of the above mentioned things many are deficient in magnesium. Magnesium is needed for proper immune function. It is needed for proper mental health, and metabolic health. If deficient a person can develop restless leg syndrome, sleeplessness, NMDA receptor over activation so has been found to be low in many who have autism. If deficient in magnesium it can damage the cardiovascular system. Magnesium prevents oxalate build up in the body. Magnesium prevents excess blood clotting. Magnesium deficiency can cause glaucoma. Magnesium increases our tolerance for stress. Low magnesium and high aluminum levels can cause Parkinson’s .

Zinc improves function of the immune system, it is needed for many metabolic functions, and it prevents depression.

Polyunsaturated fatty acids such as cod liver oil, coconut oil, flax seed oil, and olive oil help prevent obesity, diabetes, inflammatory diseases and improves immune function.

Vitamin B12 which many are deficient in now days protects the nerves and brain, it prevents homocysteinuria and prevents mental issues.

SAMe has been found to dramatically reduce the symptoms of arthritis.

Nitric oxide is needed for proper immune function, reduces oxidative stress, needed to prevent inflammation in the gut, prevents cavities, helps to prevent cardiovascular disease. Our bacteria in our mouths convert the nitrites and nitrates in our food to nitric oxide. NO also prevents osteoporosis and increases exercise endurance. Many are deficient in nitric oxide because of the over consumption of process foods. Leafy greens and beet root are high in nitrates. Nitric oxide is also needed to maintain proper glucose and insulin levels.

Niacin is needed to fuel oxidation , especially of fatty acids. It is need to produce ATP which is the energy needed by almost all cells in the body. It is also needed for gluconiogenesis, ketogenesis, needed for proper function of the pentose phosphate pathway, it is needed for producing heme, steroid hormones, and detoxing free radicals. Low niacin levels results in DNA damage. Niacin stimulates the longevity genes, prevents heart disease and can reverse some signs of aging. It protects brain cells and helps to prevent glaucoma.

Vitamin B6 has been found to be deficient in many now days. It is needed by almost every process in the body. It prevent amyloid B formation which cause Alzheimers and organ damage. It prevents excess inflammation. It is neuro protective so protects the nerves and brain.

Vitamin D is another nutrient many are deficient in now days. It reduce the risk of cancer, decreases mortality , It is needed in many metabolic processes especially those involved in digestion. It helps prevent viral and bacteria infection. If vitamin D is low a person will experience poor bone health and will develop cavities.

The list of nutrients goes on and on and how the effect the body. Some nutrient deficiencies can cause autoimmune diseases such as lupus , or eczema. Carbohydrate deficiency can cause autoimmunity.

Now let discus supplements that have been shown to help when someone is ill.

Boswellia (frankinsense) reduces inflammation and helps restore proper immune function.

Tumeric reduces inflammation, reduces risk of autoimmunity, heart disease, diabetes and cancer.

Panax gensing has been shown to reduce the symptoms of type 2 diabetes.

N-acetylcysteine (NAC) inflammation and oxidative stress are the main conditions that occur in the body that causes chronic illness. NAC reduces inflammation and oxidative stress.

It improves fat and carbohydrate metabolism. It helps reduce the symptoms of IC and has been shown to help prevent cancer. It has antibacterial properties against Staphylococcus Aureus, E Coli, Pseudomonas derugilosa, Salmonella typhi, streptococcus pyrogenes and most other types of Salmonellla.

Melatonin one of the most potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidants. Has been shown to reduce symptoms of some forms of autism. It improves sleep quality and reduces the symptoms of Alzheimers, improves mental health and glycemic control.

Stinging Nettles reduces arthritis pain, it is an aromatase inhibitor which reduces androgen levels. This would reduce the incidence of certain types of cancer especially prostate cancer. It reduces prostate swelling. It improves urinary health. It reduces gut inflammation. Helps to normalize glucose and insulin levels.

Querciten hel;ps fight viral infection. It inhibits tyrosine kinase which prevents many types of cancer. Low dose it is an antioxidant and in high dose it is an oxidant. It helps to prevent estrogen dominance. It stimulates insulin secretion and protects pancreatic B cells. It acctivates NRF2 the master regulator of the antioxidant system. It inhibits the release of histamine. Querciten helps to revers cognitive decline and has been shown to improve symptoms of Alzheimers. It extends lifespan. Querciten increases exercise endurance and speeds up recovery time. It reduces fat build up in the liver. Querciten prevents obesity. It prevents cataract formation. It inhibits glycosylation of hemoglobin proteins. It decreases plasma glucose levels and increases pancreatic islet cells. It improves liver and pancreatic function.

L-citruline reduces symptoms of asthma, and helps prevent cardiovascular disease. It improves muscle endurance and performance.

Japanese honeysuckle found to be one of the most effective things against covid. It reduces fever and protect the body from the effects of endotoxins. It fights many types of infections including mycoplasma. It stimulates cardiovascular healing and improves cardiovascular health. It has been found to protect the liver from injury. It reduces inflammation in the gut and stimulates healing in the gut. Honeysuckle normalizes glucose and insulin levels.

Oxeye daisy speeds up wound healing including the healing of broken bones. Potent anti-inflammatory effects. Has very potent antimicrobial properties. It reduces anxiety, and pain. It prevents many types of cancer. It has potent antioxidant properties. It reduces the symptoms of Alzheimers. \

Grape seed extract prevents insulin resistance. Increases B-oxidation which prevents weight gain and increases cellular energy. Increases expression of FXR which can increase longevity. It helps restore balance to the microbiome. It protects the genes that regulate our internal clock(circadian rhythm). It improves gut and cardiovascular health. It improves endurance and strength. Grape seed extract improves bone health. It helps prevent fibrosis in the body which can damage organs. It prevents oxidative stress. It neuro protective so protects the brain. It reduces the symptoms of menopause.

Not sure of the accuracy of these sites but they have a remedy finder which will list herbs that help with certain symptoms.

Many illnesses are set off by nutrient deficiencies. Most in the industrialized world are deficient in nutrients because of over farming and the farm chemicals used chelate nutrients from the soil and they also kill the microbes that help the plants absorb nutrients. This is driving obesity because in order to get the nutrients needed many have to consume larger proportions of food. The government had to start requiring they fortify food with nutrients because of this. But some of the nutrients are man made and toxic to the body. One of them is folic acid which is toxic to the body and has been linked to dementia and cancer. They add folic acid to everything and it has been found to be in high levels in children who have autism. Folate is natural and does not build up in the body and cause damage.

If you have read article this you have taken the first steps to getting off the medical hamster wheel and learning how to truly heal and break free of the medical hamster wheel of modern medicine and take your health and the health of your family into your own hands. It is never good to entrust something valuable such as your health to the very ones who would profit from a person being ill.

Ordering your own test. Some will leave you order test without a doctor. You can order many test online and some companies use local clinics and labs to collect and test the samples. Some test do not require you go to a clinic or lab but can send the tools for sample collection to your home and they can be mailed in. There may better better and cheaper options the links I provide are to demonstrate you can order test and even have them interpreted without having a doctor do it for you.

Base protocol for healing.

Wrtten by Lee Stevenson

This is not medical advice. If you are ill please find an experienced functional medicine practitioner. I am putting this here to give people an idea of what a base protocol to help start their healing will look like

Inflammation and oxidative stress.

P5P

B12

Pine bark extract

CoQ10 this one a person has to ease into because it does detox cells and a person can get ill at first when taking it.

Grape seed extract.

Alternate the type of Omega threes you consume I have found alternating them to be more effective. I alternate between flax seed oil, avocado oil, coconut oil, and fish oil. Make sure the fish oil is fresh, contains lemon to preserve freshness and store it in the refrigerator.

Melatonin, if you react to melatonin it means your vitamin D levels are low

Vitamin D3 do not take over 500 IU

Magnesium I usually alternate the types I take.

Maganese and molybdenum three times a week.

Zinc but do not take high dose.

If you have high ammonia

yucca root

jerusalem artichoke root

TMG plant based do not get trymethylglycine HCL that is man made. Get Trymethylglycine from plants based.

This along with the base protocol

If you have infection

coconut oil

mugwort

bayberry

Pau Darco

Perriwinkle

Probiotics

Butyrate producers like Clostridium butyrica

A probiotic with a variety of bifidobacteria.

Now Probiotic 10

Lactobacillus acidophilus, lactobacillus heliviticus, lactobacillus Casei shiroto

Streptococcus thermophilus

If you have IC or excess blood clotting or numbness in hands or feet.

Bacopa

Butchers Broom

Grape seed extract

Nattokinase

If you are gaining weight it indicates inhibite B oxidation. You need to increase Type 1 muscle and work on restoring mitochondrial respiration. Or if you are experiencing tight or fatigued muscles.

CoQ10

Nicotinamide

Eat foods high in B vitamins like mushrooms.

Increase nitrate by eating foods such as leafy greens and beets.

Increase vitamin C

Malabsorption

If you have malabsorption you may have to use sublingual supplements until your gut heals or take megatribulus extract which increase absorption of nutrients it is consumed with.

Mucilage like kudzu root, marshmallow root or maca root

Devron bismuth but do not take too long or too often. High levels of bismuth can inhibit mitochondrial respiration.

If possible drink bone broth once in a while it give the gut the nutrients it needs to heal.

Also take a complete plant based digestive enzyme complex when you eat.

Dangers of high uric acid levels.

Written by Lee Stevenson sorry I am a lousy editor.

This is not medical advice and should not be taken as such. I am writing this for educational purposes if you are ill find a reputable naturopath who is knowledgeable and has a good reputation I do not recommend anyone treating themselves.

This is going to discuss how cells in our bodies respond to excess uric acid. Many do not see how serious the damage to the body uric acid does. It can lead to life threatening health issues. Gout is the least of the worries when it comes to uric acid.

When cells come in contact with uric acid they leak serotonin , ATP, ADP and there is a loss of lactic acid dehdrogenase, or beta-glucuronidase. When this occurs excess cellular lysis occurs. IgG is also released and immune complexes to be released. Now we will discuss what the consequences of each of these things occurring is.

The loss of cellular ATP and ADP will cause the body to have to switch to another source of energy. It is a very inefficient way for the body to produce energy so a person will experience fatigue and most likely experience weight gain. Those who are more chronic may experience sever weight loss. This also shuts down the citric acid cycle. Oxidative phosphorylation needed for many mitochondrial process gets shut down. This reduces the ability for the body to heal. This will also effect many hormones in the body and a person most likely will develop high estrogen levels. They may show symptoms of high estrogen but estrogen levels may be normal but progesterone levels will be reduce causing the same symptoms as estrogen dominance.

There is a loss of lactate dehydrogenase or beta-glucuronidase caused by the release of aggregated IgG or immune complexes. The loss of lactate dehydrogenase cause a loss of the ability to convert lactic acid to pyruvate resulting in acidosis. The body can no longer convert NAD to NADH and back. Lactate dehydrogenase is released during cellular injury, it prevents muscle failure and fatigue. It helps maintain proper ATP levels. Which farther adds to the fatigue a person will experience. Vitamin C taken in excess can also cause a loss of lactate dehydrogenase. Beta-glucuronidase is needed for the break down of complex carbohydrates for energy. Beta-glucuronidase converts bilirubin to unconjugated so it can be reabsorbed from the intestines so this can result in liver and kidney damage. There is a loss of glycosaminglycans (GAG) which is needed to maintain the health of the bladder, gut, membrane, blood brain barrier, cartilage, joint, bones, eyes and soft tissue in the joints. Loss of beta-glucuronidase causes the blood brain barrier to leak leading to brain inflammation and possible damage, interstitial cystitis, arthritis, connective tissue loss, damage to tendons and joints. It can also lead to leaky gut or gut inflammation.

Excess IgG in the blood stream causes the bodies immune system to turn on the body. This results in autoimmunity. This can lead to hepatitis, cirrhosis of the liver, connective tissue destruction, joint damage, systemic inflammation.

The excess serotonin in the blood stream causes irritability, agitation, restlessness, and anxiety. This can also cause muscle tremors, muscle rigidity, and muscle spasms, rapid heart beat, high blood pressure, excess sweating. A person may experience confusion, dizziness, or become disoriented.

This can be complicated even farther if someone take nicotinamide for the fatigue because it increases serotonin in the body.

The increased lysis caused by the uric acid causes the intracellular contents to leak into the blood stream, these are potassium, phosphate, and nucleic acids to leak into the blood stream. This results in hypercalcemia, hyperphosphatemia, hyperuricemia because this also increases uric acid levels, and acut kidney injury. Uric acid crystals and calcium phosphate crystals occur which are damaging to the body especially the renal system. This can lead to vaginosis and vulvadynia and cause interstitial cystitis.

Hypercalcemia (excess calcium in the blood) blocks sodium channels and inhibits depolarization, this can cause slower reflexes and muscle weakness, cardiac arythmias, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, kidney impairment, increased urination especially at night and increased thirst.

Hyperphosphatemia (excess phosphorous in the blood) can cause calcium depositsin the soft tissue, brain, lungs, eyes, arteries, muscles, and organs. This can result in organ failure. When it occurs in the muscles they become tender and lose flexibility. This can also result in damage to the heart valves.

Hyperuricemia can be caused by infection, gut inflammation , high glyphosate levels, eating processed foods which cause systemic inflammation, eating to many foods high in biogenic amines, issues in removing uric acid from the body, leaky gut which most do not realize they have. This can also result from gut dysbiosis especially if a person has to many microbes involved in protein proteolysis. Because the damage uric acid causes to the cells also increases uric acid levels it is a very difficult positive feedback loop to break. Uric acid is excreted in both the urine and intestinal tract. If we have inflammation in the gut or leaky gut the body cannot reduce the uric acid quickly enough. Insulin overload, iron toxicity can also increase uric acid levels. This is why it is very important to do our best to get uric acid levels down because things can rapidly decline and the higher levels get the harder the cycle is to break. Lithium helps break down the uric acid. Alkalizing the urine also helps to reduce uric acid levels. If there is an infection it must be addressed. There are many metabolic issues that can also cause high uric acid levels.

Why those with Lyme disease get so ill.

I am writing this to show why people get so ill with Lyme disease. Lyme infection rarely occurs on it’s own. Most insects that transmit Lyme carry other infectious diseases. Lyme disables the immune system making it difficult to clear out any type of infection. Lyme also has many ways of evading the immune system. It can take a variety of forms such as cyst or biofilm to protect itself from the immune system and antibiotics. Lyme disease has developed strategies to avoid almost all the things used by our immune system to fight infection including hydrogen peroxide. Lyme even infects the lymph’s and disables their ability to detect infection. Lyme has more methods of evading the immune system then the virus that causes HIV. Most who have Lyme disease experience Bell’s Palsy. This is where one side of the face become paralyzed and drops. It sometimes takes months to heal.

This is a good article that gives a small summary of just some of the things Lyme can do.

Something to take note of the test for Lyme disease has a very high failure rate at detecting it. Not only that there are a variety of species of Borrelia and as far as I know the test only test for one so if a person has any of the other species of Lyme disease the test will not detect it. Also those infected with Lyme are rarely test for the coinfections which are almost always present when the infection occurs.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6963229/

Lyme causes systemic inflammation. Systemic inflammation also inhibits the immune system and can cause the body to turn on itself. Lyme can cause a variety of symptoms such as joint swelling, neurological issues, brain damage, myocarditis, thrombosis, organ failures and many other health issues. The systemic inflammation caused by Lyme disease damages the heart in many ways which reduces it’s ability to supply blood to the body. This is why often times those with Lyme will experience numbness in hands and feet. When left untreated death can occur. This is so common with Lyme disease that if a person experiences Bell’s Palsy then they should find a medical professional to treat them that is very knowledgeable about Lyme disease and the coinfections that occur with it. Sudden temperature changes often times can set Bell’s Palsy off or make it worse.

Lyme can damage the joints in a variety of ways. Lyme can cause high ammonia levels which lead to metabolic issues which causes soft tissue to break down in the body. Lyme can cause synovial fluid to build up in the joints and could cause them to eventually start leaking. Lyme can also break down the soft tissue in the joints and body causing fluids to leak into surrounding areas which causes joint swelling and arthritis. Lyme cause high urease levels which can lead to gout. Some suffer from more then one of those. Lyme also causes bone loss in some.

Lyme disease can cause autoimmunity . A person with Lyme can experience autoimmune issues that cause them to develop many food intolerances, they could develop things such as Lupus, Psoriasis or interstitial cystitis among many other autoimmune related illnesses.

Lyme damages the heart and cardiovascular system in a variety of ways. Many Lyme sufferers are learning from experience that many medical professionals and cardiologist do not know how to identify the cardiac issues caused by Lyme. Sad when those who have become ill learn to read test better then those who are supposed to know how to interpret the results of test but experience has taught many of us that they rarely know how to interpret the results of test accurately. Lyme can cause damage to the blood vessels and cause excess blood clotting. The excess blood clotting if not addressed can lead to stroke, heart failure and death. Many push themselves too hard when they start feeling better and will set themselves back in their healing for weak. I myself made this mistake many times before I learn to only do a certain amount and to slowly increase the stressors in life whether physical or emotional because emotional stress can often times take more of a toll on the heart then physical stress.

Lyme can cause brain damage and other neurological damage. My experience has shown my that people are very resilient. I have seen many maintain their composure even though the Lyme was effecting their brains especially their memory they still seem to maintain their composure and not react to the variety of emotions that occur while they are very ill. Not only that but Lyme causes pain beyond anything a person can imagine. I have learned this from personal experience and that takes it toll on the body by draining all our energy and it often times takes a lot of mental resources to deal with the pain a person with Lyme is experiencing.

Most have Lyme disease and do not know it. A large number of those suffering from interstitial cystitis go many years having Lyme disease and never get diagnosed because of the high failure rate of the test at detecting Lyme. Because Lyme takes so many forms and has many ways to stealth itself from the immune system the body may not have an immune response to the spirochete so a person can go for years with Lyme disease and the test will not detect it. Many who have lyme disease develop liver , kidney , bladder , gall bladder and many other health issues. Most I know who had Lyme disease found urinating was very painful.

Lyme disease also alters B cells status which effects the gut and can cause gut dysbiosis leading to leaky gut, inflammatory bowel disease, diarrhea or constipation. This article summarizes what can happen to the gut when you have Lyme the things that can occur are complex and would take a whole separate article to discuss. The second article has links to research showing how Lyme effects the gut.

https://www.publichealthalert.org/palsy-of-the-gut-and-other-gi-manifestations-of-lyme-and-associated-diseases.html

Lyme causes autoimmunity through molecular mimicry. It mimics proteins in the body. If the body detects that the protein is actually an infection then it will start attacking it. Because it is similar to proteins that are in the body it causes many types of autoimmunity from mast cell activation syndrome, to diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Many infections can cause autoimmunity if systemic inflammation from a toxin or a drug has already occurred. Once this occurs it creates a positive feed back loop that is very difficult to break. These are the symptoms and illnesses that Lyme autoimmunity can cause. Myocarditis, thrombosis, erythema migrans, lyphocytoma, plexis nueritis, cranial nueritis, Bell’s Palsy, endotoxemia, hyperammonemia, proteinuria, gut dysbiosis, leaky gut, inflammatory bowel disease, interstitial cystitis and other renal diseases, Bannswoarth’s syndrome, muscular dystrophy, ALS, fibromyalgia, arthritis, dissassociative disorder, chronic fatigue syndrome, disease that are caused by lesions in the body including Parkinson’s , cancer, myositis, acrodermatitis and many other skin disorders including Lupus, loss of fluids from the joints causing them to leak into the surrounding areas, depression, irritability, mental confusion, memory loss, polyneuropathy encephlomyelitis, memory deficit disorder, somnolence (excessive sleeping), adrenal fatigue, some will go the other way and will have difficulty sleeping, I alternated between somnolence and insomnia, anorexia, flu like symptoms that will not go away, night blindness, sensitivity to light which causes a person to be easily blinded by light, and nerve palsy. These are the symptoms and health issues I have seen occur the most though Lyme causes many other health issues.

The severe headaches caused by Lyme can be caused by many things. Lyme can enter the brain and cause meningitis, Lyme causes high ammonia levels which damages the blood brain barrier leaving excess glutamate enter the brain which can effect the NMDA and leaving toxins enter the brain that would not normally enter the brain. The endotoxins from Lyme itself can cause the blood brain barrier to become porous leaving it enter the brain causing brain inflammation and effecting many receptors.

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.

The hidden side of chronic illness.

Written by Lee Stevenson. Sorry I am a lousy editor.

Those of us who have been chronically ill or are still chronically ill need to speak out about what we are enduring. If we do not speak out then society will continue to sweep us under the carpet and falsely justify the things they are doing and have done to us. If they believe in God they have a lot to make up for because they have wronged us and the bible requires they make up for it more then they wronged us. I am not going to cover the biblical aspects of things in this article but we need to speak out about everything we endure including the emotional aspects of it.

I am doing this article based on my personal experience and my experience with helping others to heal. I am going to discuss as accurately as I can the emotional aspects of what happens when someone is chronically ill and how the vast majority of family and friends react to those who are chronically ill. There are a variety of emotions involved with chronic illness and they occur for many reasons. Oftentimes there is brain inflammation. Oftentimes these emotions result from the person desiring to be able to function normally again . I have found oftentimes it is because the person’s friends and family have emotionally and physically abandoned them and even ostracize them while putting on a show that they cared. I experienced all this. Yet when others were not around their actions and the things they would say to me contradicted what they made things appear to others. Now combine all this with the fact that most who are chronically ill have brain swelling and are struggling mentally with the many issues involved with brain swelling. For example mood swings, personality changes, sometimes it takes so much mental energy to block out the pain they have very little mental resources left for emotional or even basic functions of life. I am finding society as a whole abandons the chronically ill especially if they have a tick borne illness or interstitial cystitis some of the most painful conditions but the illnesses cannot be seen and because the person looks healthy most refuse to believe they are suffering as severely as they are. These are referred to by those who suffered from them as invisible illnesses. Since I suffered from them it had a double meaning to me. One meaning is no one believed I was chronically ill because they could not see my illness and two because after I got chronically ill I seem to become invisible to family, friends and society. Society puts on a show that they care, but from personal experience I have found that is exactly what it is just show. When it comes to providing for the real needs of the chronically ill with things like emotional support or physical support the chronically ill are pretty much on their own. Society takes a non biblical approach and tries throwing money at the problem while ignoring the actual needs of the chronically ill. The chronically ill are victims of family, friends and society.

Usually some of the main feelings a person who experiences chronic illness is sadness because they cannot be there for others or they cannot fulfill their responsibilities that are necessary for example family, or household responsibilities. I have found society puts on a good show at pretending they care about the chronically ill but in actuality they abandon them by not providing for their emotional and physical needs which includes trying to reduce emotional and physical burdens so the person can focus on healing. Because they offer very little help and oftentimes expect a lot from a person who is chronically ill it dramatically increases the time it takes for the person to heal. It often takes every ounce of energy for someone who is chronically ill to just fulfill their basic life functions. Even eating often can be very exhausting, things like taking a shower or even brushing our teeth become very labor intensive for those who are chronically ill. When a chronically ill person has good days and can easily do certain things they cannot normally do society seems to take that as evidence they have healed and abandon them even farther. We experience even more sadness and anxiety because now we are trying to fulfill what others expect of us because we do not want to let them down and in the meantime we can feel the added emotional and physical stress causing our health to decline. When we try to express what is happening often we are met with responses that are cold and uncaring. This causes those who are chronically ill to become emotionally and even physically isolated. The very support system they thought they could count on is completely neglecting their needs and not even acknowledging them. This causes the person who is chronically ill to experience extreme loneliness even if they have many people around them.

We often times become irritable because we are struggling to maintain our composure because of the pain and mental anguish we are experiencing. Top that off with how the chronic low grade inflammation has affected the brain it takes all we have not to lose our tempers and get angry over the littlest things that normally we would think nothing of. Add this to how most who are chronically ill are being treated and neglected it makes it even more difficult to not become irritable. Not only that but the chronically ill realize how something someone is doing is affecting them mentally and physically and they are trying their best to conserve mental and physical resources to survive and heal and for the most part their needs are being neglected and ignored.

There is a lot of anxiety that comes with chronic illness because it takes many many doctors visits to get diagnosed and because modern medicine has been so heavily indoctrinated by the modern day corporate science they have no idea how to help those who are chronically ill so those who are chronically ill also end up getting abandoned by the medical community farther isolating them. Most chronically ill have to become their own researchers and spend many many hours studying so they can learn to heal. In the meantime they are very aware of how close death is. Many who are chronically ill have others who are counting on them and they do not want to leave them by dying. They also want to be a part of their lives but the illness takes so much away from them physically and emotionally that they have very little left for friends and family. They watch their lives crumbling around them and their families will put the blame on them farther adding to their anxiety. They will nit pick at the chronically ill pointing out responsibilities they are neglecting. Not understanding why they are spending so much time researching and speaking to others so they can learn to heal. The chronically ill are doing the best they can to learn to heal and want nothing more then to be there for their friends and family yet those very ones will be the ones pointing out their inadequacies that the chronically ill can do nothing about. Oftentimes this will cause the chronically ill person so much emotional distress that it starts taking from them physically and it causes their health to decline even farther causing even more anxiety.

Being chronically ill also comes with the feeling of emptiness, hopelessness, guilt, and we may even feel worthless. Those who are chronically ill lose much of their emotional and physical and even financial support. Those they needed the most distance themselves from them or even add to their stress and physical demands instead of supporting them so they can heal. The mental energy needed to focus on healing and on working just to function takes a lot and there is not much left for even basic things such as planning a meal or even going shopping. The chronically ill person feel emotionally empty from being isolated and from having to use so much of their mental energy for others things they have very little left for emotions. With the chronically ill being expected to function normally and fulfill the normal aspects of their lives which become a mental and physical burden that hinders their healing and they can feel it they start feeling hopelessness. With the medical community being so corrupted , family , friends and society expecting more from the person then they can actually give it causes a sense of hopelessness because the chronically ill person forces themselves to do things that are emotionally and physically demanding which causes their health to decline. Things such as family gatherings can be very emotionally and physically taxing on someone who is trying to block out pain and who is physically wiped out. The slightest bit of stress can dramatically set someone who is chronically ill back. When I was chronically ill and would point this out to people they would tell me “life is stressful get over it. “

A person who is chronically ill is usually so focused on healing that things they used to find pleasurable like going to social gatherings or going on a date become non pleasurable because of the physical and emotional resources that have been used to do those things. Even sitting and talking with family had become emotionally and physically taxing for me because I had to watch what I said or did because I would get a lot of criticism about how I lacked responsibility and didn’t seem to care about things anymore. In actuality I cared deeply but was so emotionally and physically drained and I was trying to do my best to conserve energy mentally and physically so I could heal. Guilt comes from this because we realize we are not fulfilling our responsibilities and we have become a burden to others. Usually the guilt is farther increased by those around the chronically ill pointing out the things they are inadequately fulfilling. The mental resources it takes for a chronically ill person to block out the pain , the fatigue and many other health issues causes those who are chronically ill to become absent minded, have memory loss, become emotionally distanced because of the amount of mental energy it takes to deal with the illness. Oftentimes we do not want to burden others so we will try and pretend we are not as sick as we actually are which comes with it’s own guilt because now we are deceiving others adding to our problems because they will expect more from us. So to reveal this to them after we have put on a show of being better then we actually are means we expose we have been deceptive. This can cause a flood of emotions between the people involved and oftentimes for me resulted in them not believing I had been pretending to be better than I was so they would still not offer the support I needed. I learned from experience when we hide how much we are actually going through we do a disservice to all those who are chronically ill because we are enabling the behavior towards the chronically ill by hiding our suffering. We also are enabling the medical communities to sweep us under the carpet and discredit us and make us look mentally ill instead of exposing the truth of the medical inadequacies and neglect.

All of the above mentioned things may cause those who are chronically ill to have trouble remembering thing, trouble in planning things, difficulty in making decisions. The chronically ill will have good and bad days but society only sees the good days and are critical of the chronically ills mental inadequacies when they are having bad days. It seems that society only chooses to see the good days the chronically ill are having and mentally block out the bad days and use those good days to justify their lack of support and their neglect of the chronically ill. They start making unreasonable demands setting the person back mentally and even physically.

Adding to the problems a chronically ill person has is the fact their sleep is affected by their illness. Because the body needs sleep to heal they may have difficulty waking also many health problems can cause excessive sleepiness. Some may switch between being excessively sleeping to having lot of energy which is what occurred with me. There would be times I would sleep for a week none stop then there would be times I could not sleep for a week at a time. Oftentimes the circadian rhythm becomes disrupted when a person is chronically ill causing them to wake at the wrong times of the day and sleep at the incorrect times. I experienced all the things mentioned. This adds to the stress because all we want is to be normal again but oftentimes people will complain how much we sleep and say if we would get up and move around and quit being so lazy we could get some things done. This also adds to the guilt because we are very aware of how our irregular sleep patterns are affecting our lives.

The things a chronically ill person experiences can cause them to have thoughts of death. Suicide attempts and suicide is very high among those who are chronically ill . I thought of dying and desired to and even prayed for it. I believe because of the damage my body had suffered there was no way it could recover. I thought I would be useless the rest of my life and felt like I was a prisoner of my own body. Though I did not try suicide nor would have I wanted to die. The pain was beyond anything I ever thought I could endure. Yet no one would acknowledge my suffering and my pain. Even now if I mentioned what I endured people will criticize me and even make it appear as if I am crazy when I mention them. Oftentimes they even blame the chronically ill person’s behavior on being mentally ill. This further adds to the desire to die. I am glad I did not die and I am very happy I have learned to heal and have had the opportunity to teach others they can heal.

I am not blaming those who neglect, ignore or add burdens on the chronically ill only but the blame also goes to the chronically ill oftentimes because we try not to burden others with what we are enduring. When we do get criticism for what we endure we easily just go back to hiding it believing it will make us less of a burden on others. We go back to trying to pretend like everything is ok in the meantime it is causing our health to decline because we are fighting very hard to appear to be somewhat normal and functional. In doing so we are doing a disservice to all those who are chronically ill because we continue to let the medical communities and society as a whole including families to ignore those who are chronically and not acknowledge how sick they really are.

One thing I have not recovered from mentally is the isolation I now feel. I no longer seem to have anything in common with anyone because becoming chronically ill taught me to enjoy the simple things in life and taught me to appreciate keeping life simple. I no longer enjoy watching TV, movies or the many other worldly things they are distractions that take from true happiness. I also feel isolated because I feel in my heart I could never count on those I trusted to be there for me. It has seemingly distanced me from them. I still love them deeply but feel when things get tough they are going to put their own interest first no matter what the cost is to me or others. This has caused me to mistrust most farther isolating me. I still try my best to let love guide all I do and I love others deeply but do not have the confidence they will be there for me and I am pretty certain I would be on my own like I was when I was chronically ill. It would take quite a bit from those who let me down to convince me I could count on them and trust them. I would have to see in their actions they understand what I endured and what I am still enduring as I continue to recover. Also those scars of them letting me down will remain. I have forgiven them but I am not confident that even in their actions they are wholeheartedly going to be there for me. I know I am somewhat selfish but I always gave everyone my all and thought when I was down and out they would be there for me. The fact that they were not and actually did the opposite had made me lose any confidence I have in them and it most likely will not be restored because I still see in the things they so and do towards me they do not fully understand what I endured and how it has changed me mentally , financially, and even physically. They further isolate me by trying to compare their health issues to mine and I came very near dying a few times. I cannot see how they can compare achy joints or a burning stomach to the complete failure of my body and being very close to dying. It further shows their lack of even caring or being interested in what I had to endure. It feels as if they are down playing what I endured and even insulting my intelligence.

From a mothers perspective they may want to give up because the pain is so severe and their bodies are struggling to function. They feel guilt for not being able to be there for their children mentally or physically as they would like. They feel guilt for wanting to give up because if they died who would take care of their children. Who would make sure they remained healthy. What if they suffered from the same illness, who would guide them through it. The mothers know that no one would love and care for their children like they do. They want to get healthy because they know no one will keep the children as safe as they do but the mental , physical and emotional aspect of being chronically ill are so overwhelming that it is a struggle to go on each day.

For those who have a loving father , the father worries about who would take care of the children while he provided for him. He would be very aware no one would love and nurture them like their mother would.

Sadly I have seen the opposite occur. While a parent is struggling to maintain their health the spouse offers very little help or support. This further increase the mental, emotional and physical stress causing the parents health to decline even more.

Those Not helping the ones effected by chronic illness will not be helped on God’s great day of judgment.

Vaccine injury, Lyme disease and chronic illness from the BT Toxins and glyophosate used in GMOs are the most common forms of chronic illness now days but Lyme sufferers are the most looked down on and most discriminated against. As they judge us they also will be judged on Gods great day.

(Matthew 7:1-5) 7 “Stop judging that you may not be judged; 2 for with the judgment you are judging, you will be judged, and with the measure that you are measuring out, they will measure out to you. 3 Why, then, do you look at the straw in your brother’s eye but do not notice the rafter in your own eye? 4 Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Allow me to remove the straw from your eye,’ when look! a rafter is in your own eye? 5 Hypocrite! First remove the rafter from your own eye, and then you will see clearly how to remove the straw from your brother’s eye.

Lyme needs systematic inflammation to take out the immune system. Our environment and food is so toxic that it is causing systematic inflammation in people. The OspA is a funfal antigen that is used in bioweapons, vaccinations and many pathogens have somehow developed the ability to produce a variety of outer surface proteins that are similar to the OspA fungal antigen. My question is how did they suddenly develop this ability? Now add this with the well known fact vaccinations also cause systematic inflammation and you can see why so many are developing chronic illness from tick born disease. Ask yourself what has changed to cause so much chronic illness now days? Now I am going to describe what I experienced.

Fortunately we have Carl Tuttle on our side and his pursuit of justice and fairness is relentless. He does not let up. I am glad he is on our side and not theirs. I would not want to be on the opposing side of him. He is thorough with his research and knows what he is talking about. He has been amazing. Those suffering from mysterious illness that they cannot explain should read this. This is a medical professional describing her experience in getting diagnosed and treated for Lyme disease.

https://www.change.org/p/the-us-senate-calling-for-a-congressional-investigation-of-the-cdc-idsa-and-aldf/u/23804038?cs_tk=Aa50gapTNyDGCxZmN1wA-1Zm1fmnEl69rt_9r7wtrA%3D%3D&utm_campaign=9fe2604cf8a245db9d0c28c6047d9430&utm_medium=email&utm_source=petition_update&utm_term=cs

If you do not have Lyme you are one insaect bite, or one sexual partner away from your life being destroy. There are many methods Lyme can be transmitted. You can carry it for decades then one vaccination, too many GMOs or too many toxins and you will experience what this medical professional did. They first try to prescribe Psych meds. Then they ignore you and tell you not to come back to their office you have to jump from one doctor to another and all of them will do the same exact things. This woman had a lacerated meniscus and swollen knee. This was my first symptoms and happened exactly like it happened to her only when they went in to repair my meniscus they discovered weird calcium deposits on my muscles and ligaments. they removed them and my muscle spasms went away for a while and I could use my leg. Then slowly this started happening throughout my body.

Then over the years different joints including my fingers would swell and get very sore. They told me I had gout or arthritis. All doctors had the same reactions when the test come back negative for both. So their next reaction was because I believe something was wrong with my body I was imagining things and it was causing my body to react this way. So again they tried to prescribe me psych meds. Then just before I become bedridden many of my joints started developing cyst around them including my fingers and toes. The pain was beyond anything I could describe. I finally found a doctor who know immediately what it was but said I was so ill that giving me antibiotics my kill me. I thought she forgot about me because I laid for four months. My Facebook friends were teaching me how to heal and I was slowly getting better. Then my new doctor called said she finally found someone who knew how to treat someone who was as ill as I was.

It took me so long to get treated that it destroyed my health, I lost my job and you will be denied disability if you get Lyme. I have watched Lyme sufferers starve to death and become homeless because most peoples family will not research things but will believe the false narratives surrounding Lyme so they offer no help and actually do things to try and force use into doing things we are not capable of doing. I lost everything I had even my tools. To eat and to get medical treatment I had to sell everything I had. There are many Lyme suffers Laying bedridden right now with family that will not help them and treat them horrible because of the false narratives out there.

God does not accept ignorance as an excuse when the truth is easily available so all those involved, even those who choose to remain ignorant neglect those suffering will be held accountable on Jehovah’s great day.

I have covered why many die before getting diagnosed with Lyme in another blog post.

https://iamajuicer.wordpress.com/2018/12/15/why-most-die-before-getting-a-diagnosis-of-lyme-disease/

This is why there cannot be a real Lyme test.

Ticks are not the only methods of Lyme transmission other biting insects can transmit it. It can be transmitted from mother to child, It can also be transmitted sexually. Many who have gotten Lyme do not remember getting bitten by a tick because most likely they were not bitten by a tick but became infected through other means.

God sees what they are doing and will hold them accountable.

Jeremiah 8:“How can you say, ‘We are wise, and the law of the Lord is with us’? But behold, the lying pen of the scribes has made it into a lie.
9 The wise men shall be put to shame;they shall be dismayed and taken; behold, they have rejected the word of the Lord,
so what wisdom is in them?
10 Therefore I will give their wives to others
and their fields to conquerors,because from the least to the greatest everyone is greedy for unjust gain; from prophet to priest,everyone deals falsely.
11 They have healed the wound of my people lightly,
saying, ‘Peace, peace,’when there is no peace.
12 Were they ashamed when they committed abomination?
No, they were not at all ashamed;they did not know how to blush.
Therefore they shall fall among the fallen;
when I punish them, they shall be overthrown,says the Lord.

2Peter 2:and if He delivered righteous Lot, vexed with the filthy conduct of the wicked

(for that righteous man, having dwelt among them seeing and hearing, was vexed in his righteous soul day after day with their unlawful deeds)—

then the Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust unto the Day of Judgment to be punished,

10 but chiefly those who walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise governance. Presumptuous are they and selfwilled; they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities,

11 whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord.

12 But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not, and shall utterly perish in their own corruption,

13 and shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as those who count it pleasure to revel in the daytime. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceptions while they feast with you,

14 having eyes full of adultery and who cannot cease from sin, beguiling unstable souls; their hearts they have exercised with covetous practices; accursed children!

15 They have forsaken the right way and have gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Beor, who loved the wages ofunrighteousness,

16 but was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with a man’s voice forbad the madness of the prophet.

17 These are wells without water, clouds that are carried by a tempest, for whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.

18 For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh and through much wantonness those who had clean escaped from those who live in error.

19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption; for by whom a man is overcome, by the same is he brought into bondage.

Proverbs 21:He who shuts his ear to the cry of the poor Will also cry himself and not be answered.

Micah 3:4 Then they will cry out to the LORD, But He will not answer them Instead, He will hide His face from them at that time Because they have practiced evil deeds.

(Psalm 12:5)  5 “Because the afflicted are oppressed, Because of the sighing of the poor, I will rise up to act,” says Jehovah. “I will save them from those who treat them with contempt. . .

(Proverbs 28:24-27) 24 Whoever robs his father and mother and says, “It is not wrong,” Is a partner of the man who causes ruin. 25 The greedy person stirs up dissension, But whoever relies on Jehovah will prosper. 26 Whoever trusts in his own heart is stupid, But the one who walks in wisdom will escape. 27 Whoever gives to the poor will lack nothing, But the one who closes his eyes to them will receive many curses.

Why many die before getting a diagnosis of Lyme disease.

 

Lyme disease destroys ones life. Because of the corruption and lies surrounding Lyme most do not get diagnosed until it is too late and their health has already been destroyed. They get no help from the government, medical community or family. I have seen many become homeless and die from being refused medical treatment and not having money to buy food.

There is a myth that a person will get a rash and this rarely occured in most I know who had gotten Lyme.

LYMEPOLICYWONK: How many of those with Lyme disease have the rash? Estimates range from 27-80%.

A myth that many governments around the world propagate is that a tick has to be attached for 24 hours for a person to become infected with Lyme. They can be infected immediately especially if they smash the tick while removing it because it can cause some of the fluids from the tick to enter the bite area. The quicker a tick is safely removed the less chance a person has of getting Lyme but the 24 hour time period is a myth. There is evidence showing Lyme disease can be rapidly transmitted. The worst part of it is There are many types of bacteria that cause Lyme but the test only test for a few of them. The test has a very high failure rate and because of the nature of borrelia and it’s ability to morph in order to evade detection by the immune system and to protect itself from the body the longer it goes without being treated the more likely a person is to develop chronic Lyme.

There is a lot of fraud and flaws with Lyme testing and it has been 30 years since the fraud was exposed and our government will do nothing about it. Lyme test do not work and the guidelines set out by the CDC and IDSA are based on fraudulent research. It is why people have to die first before they are properly diagnosed with Lyme. The test for Lyme was meant to be used to track Lyme disease cases it was not meant to be used for clinical diagnoses so why are they requiring it to be used before a person can be treated?

Though the test may offer some hope if they get diagnosed chances are if they have Lyme even the most reliable test can be negative but it increases your chances of being able to be treated if you get tested and it shows you have Lyme.

Sadly they are still running on the Lyme testing hamster wheel and it is going no where and is why it should be a clinical diagnoses. Or they should have the blood put directly under the microscope to looke for live spirochetes. Sadly even that fails. I have seen people told they do not have Lyme after getting their blood put under a microscope when you could clearly see Lyme spirochetes in the persons blood. Why all the lying?

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4441761/

The true number of those dying from Lyme will never be known because unlike HIV, or other illnesses that they list on the death certificate complications of HIV or diabetes or things of that nature with Lyme they will list it as renal failure or heart failure. Also because Lyme damages the brain and causes depression suicide rates are very high with Lyme sufferers so there again though Lyme indirectly was the cause of death it is not what the death certificate would say.

High ammonia levels, brain fog, fatigue.

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

stomache

 

Hyperammonemia

Homeostasis should always be the goal. If you over do things you can push yourself too far in the other direction and have a whole lot of new problems to deal with.

High levels of ammonia in the body can damage the liver and kidneys. It can irritate the bladder and damage the brain. A person will develop brain foga and, they will develop brain swelling because ammonia makes the blood brain barrier more porous. A person will also develop muscle weakness, blurred vision, confusion and possibly demensia. When ammonia levels get very high a person will start developing high glutamate levels. This will cause a head ache that will make your head feel like it is going to split in half. Dysbiosis, high glyphosate or glufonisate levels in the body can cause high ammonia levels. Infections can also increase ammonia levels, especially tick born illness. High aluminum levels causes a disruption in the cycle needed to convert glutamate to GABA. This causes low GABA levels and high glutamate levels. I have posted on the pineal gland which covers detoxing aluminum. Most species of bifido bacteria will produce GABA if they are provided with fiber or Galacto-oligosaccharide. A bacteria found I swiss chees Propionibacterium Freudenreichii produces substances that enhances the growth and health of bifidobacteria.

Most lactobacillus species of probiotic produce lactate which helps reduce ammonia levels. Glacto-oligosaccharide help increase lactobacillus.

Drugs like fluoroquinolones can cause metabolic issues that can cause high ammonia levels.

High ammonia levels also effect our bladder and our digestive system. It changes the ph increasing it. This causes commensal like Candida and H Pylori to go from commensal to pathogenic forms. In order to restore our health we must work on reducing the ammonia levels in our bodies. Metabolic issues can also cause increased ammonia levels. Porphyria, pronteinuria, BH4 deficiency, and upregulated CBS pathway can cause high ammonia levels. Another why that high ammonia can develop is if the bodies ability to metabolize phenylalanine is blocked or inhibited. Low zinc levels can impair the uric acid cycle which can cause ammonia levels to become raised. I found zinc pocalinate helped me a lot.

When a person is suffering from any of those issues high sulfur foods and meat will make things worse. Also consumption of fats will make someone ill if they have high ammonia levels. Medium chain fatty acids are the best to consume when we have those issues. P5P a bioavailable for of B6, magnesium chloride and getting micro nutrients helps reduce ammonia levels. Molybdenum also becomes depleted but should only be taken a few times a week it can become toxic if we over do it. We need selenium I prefer natural sources to prevent getting too much and messing our thyroids up. I eat about 4 Brazil nuts a day. If you have thyroid issues selenium can cause you to react in a way that resembles a food allergy.

High ammonia levels cause neurological damage throughout the body. It will also cause excessive blood clotting and damage to our blood vessels. Bacopa, grape seed extract and hawthorne help prevent that damage.

High ammonia levels can cause high histamines from leaky gut that high ammonia levels cause which can lead to mast cell degranulation which can result in mast cell activation syndrome or mastocytosis. To reduce histamines probiotics that reduce histamines may help. Avoid high histamine foods and fermented foods including most cheese. I have posted on healing the gut. It is very important to address that or you will not get your ammonia levels down. Also take probiotics that reduce zonulin levels, break down ammonia , decrease inflammation and increase T regulatory cells.

Detoxing any chemicals especially glyphosate and mercury is very important and I have posted on that also.

Determining the cause of your high ammonia levels is very important that helps pinpoint what is needed to help correct it.

Things that help the brain heal are mugwort or wormwood they are very similar chemically, sunflower seed lecithin, coconut oil, butyrate found in butter or ghee. Whey protein has glycoprotein that helps the brain heal, fights infection, and improves cell to cell communication. Mushrooms and oatmeal contain beta glucan which fights infection and helps the brain heal.

Reducing the bad gut bacteria and increasing the good is very important in order to reduce high ammonia levels. High ammonia levels can also be a result of gut dysbiosis especially if a person has too many sulfur digesting gut bacteria.

If we do not address high ammonia levels it can increase our estrogen levels and cause high T4 levels causing thyroid problems.

When we have high ammonia levels it causes our breathing to become slow and deep. This is to increase oxygen in the body because high ammonia levels cause a decrease in oxygen in the blood.

If the water we consume has too many nitrates or we get too many nitrite in our bodies it will increase ammonia levels and make a person suffer from oxygen deprivation from the effects on the read blood cells.

Consuming meat can increase the ammonia levels in the body. If too much meat is consumed it does not digest all the way and will ferment in the lower intestinal tract which causes ammonia to be produced.

Lactulose helps reduce ammonia levels in the intestines. It is fermented to lactate which binds to ammonia prevent it from entering the body. Betaine helps reduce ammonia by helping to recycle the enzymes in the body used to break down and convert proteins. Those with PEMT issues should be cautious with betaine (trimethylglycine). Onithine, arginine, yucca root, butyric acid, vitamin C which should be acquired from natural sources also help reduce ammonia. Manganese ad molybdenum help reduce ammonia in the body but should not be taken in high doses and should not be taken for more then a few times a week they are toxic in high levels in the body. Oligosaccharides and inulin help reduce ammonia in the body. Supporting the pathways that are involved with sulfation will help reduce ammonia levels. Magnesium chloride and P5P (pyidoxal 5 Phosphate).

High ammonia levels can cause other metabolic problems which can lead to high ketone levels which can inhibit many metabolic pathways.

Gingko Biloba helps repair the damage in the brain from high ammonia levels but should not be used for more then a couple of months. Many studies I have read show it starts damaging the liver after about two months. The first three days I took it, all heck broke loose because with the improve blood flow to my brain it started to heal. When it started to heal I got pain in my eyes and a bad ache in the front of my head. I continued taking it and after the third day I could feel my mental clarity coming back and I could focus better. Things with biacelin like skuletaria, plantaine herb and fleabane help repair the damage high ammonia causes. Mugwort, coconut oil and other medium chain fatty acids also help the brain to repair. Creatine levels can also become low but I did not have the money to supplement it so I do not know if it would have benefited me or not. Mugwort helps increase GABA. Rooibos tea also helps increase GABA and helps improve brain function.

A person with high ammonia levels may have problems oxidizing fats. Medium chain fatty acids can be readily used by the body which can help promote healing.

Because protein can cause ammonia levels to become low I added glycoproteins to my diet which helped me a lot. I got those from mushrooms and whey protein. We still need to consume some meat. When I had to consume meat I would take protease enzymes like papain, bromelain and beataine with my meal to help increase the break down of the protein thus preventing the build up of ammonia in the gut. I still had to address the metabolic issues.

Though I am not big on drugs rifaximin and neomycin taken together has been shown to help with gut dysbiosis. You will have to take probiotics to replace the good gut microbes. I have posting on taking those. You must do it with caution. Taking too much of one type or taking them too often can lead to gut dysbiosis putting you back to where you started.

High ammonia levels can inhibit autophagy which will contribute to lysosomal issues. This will increase ammonia levels even more. Nobiline and fulvic acid stimulate autophagy but should be used in moderation.

Another problem that can develop is high insulin levels and low glucose levels. I found snacking often helped keep the proteins in my body from being broken down. Most with high ammonia levels have protein deficiencies from the many metabolic issues. I have posted a summary of my notes on metabolic issues and information on things that may help. I would make small shakes with whey protein. You have to make sure they did not add phenylalanine in the whey protein or it will make you worse. Many whey protein shake mixes and proteins and phenylalanine will increase ammonia levels in the body. I also bought bee pollen because it is high in protein and micro nutrients. I added it to my shake. I grow purslaine which has almost all the nutrients the body needs and I added that to my shakes. If I did not have any of those things I would eat carrot sticks or a couple of nuts. I found walnuts helped me the most. Hazlenuts and and pecans helped me a lot but if I ate too many they gave me an upset stomach. Pecans helped me but I could only eat about five of them, anymore then that and I would become nauseated. Brazil nuts helped me a lot but they are high in selenium so I would not recommend more then four or so a day. By preventing our sugar levels from dropping it helps preserve our proteins in our bodies. Once your ammonia levels come down your insulin levels and glucose levels will normalize.

Addressing inflammation is very important because the high ammonia levels causes systematic inflammation. This leads to metabolic issues and can cause and imbalance in the immune system.

I posted on the vitamin D receptor. It becomes inhibited when we have high ammonia levels. Taking Vitamin D is useless unless you address the other receptors that work with the vitamin D receptor this is why vitamin K, vitamin E, Vitamin A and other oil soluble vitamins are important. They must be taken with an oil for the body to absorb them. I used cod liver oil that had lemon juice to prevent it from oxidizing. Cod liver oil contains many of those nutrients. Studies have found that synthetic vitamin C does more harm then good so use natural vitamin D if you take it. Also studies have shown doses of vitamin D over 5000 IU can have a negative impact on our health. Most studies show that taking vitamin D had benefits at first but as it build up in the body it would start negatively impacting our health. I pulsed the vitamin D I took to just maintain levels in my body. I did not take it until I had the other oil soluble vitamins needed.

Antioxidants help reduce the oxidative stress from the high ammonia levels but should be used in moderation once the oxidative stress has been reduced because we need oxidative stress for healing and nutrient absorption. If we reduce reactive oxygen species too low we start losing the ability to heal and to absorb nutrients. Those who have hepatitis need to avoid things that contain resveratrol like grape seed extract because resveratrol activates hepatitis virus. L-lysien, and helicase inhibitors found in the skin or red apples, self heal and lemon balm help with hepatitis and herpes type viruses.

Branched Chain Ammino Acids help restore metabolic pathways and stimulate healing. Whey protein in high in branched chain ammino acids. Though whey protein has to be digested and broken down taking the supplements will help the body more readily absorb them. Eggs are high in BCAAs but many with sulfation issues have problems with consuming high choline foods and may feel ill after eating them. Isoleucine, valine and leucine are the three branched chain ammino acids that could be taken in supplement form.

Calcium-D-Glucarate helps with the brain fog from high ammonia levels. It can be found in the area for urinary tract infections at most pharmacies. Calcium-D-Glucarate also reduces ammonia in the body produced from breaking down protein. Calcium-D-Glucarate also reduces estrogen levels in the body which is often times high in those with high ammonia levels. It also helps the body to reduce toxins.

Bicarbonate rich mineral water can help restore insulin levels and improve blood glucose levels. I could not afford it so I used a tablespoon of baking soda in a glass of water about three times a week and it helped me a lot.

Citrulline helps reduce ammonia in the body but should only be taken a few times a week. If citrulline is taken daily it should be low dose. The liver recycles it and it can build up in the body. If levels get too high it can start causing liver damage and damage to the red blood cells. Citrulline also helps those who have lysinuric protein intolarnce. Those with Lysinuric Protein intolerance may benefit from taking the bioavailable forms of proteins L-lysine, L-argine, L-carnitine and L-ornithine because they are deficient in them. Malabsorption issues can also cause a deficiency in these. If a person is experiencing this their bones may become brittle and they may experience hair loss.

The reason I do not recommend glutamine for those with high ammonia levels is because the liver is usually stressed and it can add to the liver stress.

Cause of flaccid myelitis.

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

Flaccid myelitits is vaccine injury and should be reported there is a time limit. Vaccine injury of this type takes time to manifest and will start out as allergies or food intolerance. Most medical professionals have no training with vaccines so do not recognize vaccine injury. When it does occur most go to the emergency room and they do not look at a patients vaccine history so they will not make the connection.

It has been a recognized vaccine injury that is awarded in vaccine court.

https://www.mctlawyers.com/vaccine-injury/acute-disseminated-encephalomyelitis-adem/

Vaccinations destroy the immune system making a person more prone to infection so those vaccinated no longer have a resistance against the entorviruses. It is why those who are vaccinated are frequently catching a variety of illnesses.

This is why paralytic diseases have increased in children.

Vaccines are often suspended because they have frequently been found to be contaminated with a dangerous infectious agent. Not only are they contaminated with things like deadly infectious agents they have been found to be contaminated with extremely toxic substances. So the toxins would weaken the body and make it more prone to infection. Some ingredients used in vaccines like mercury and aluminum they falsely claim are no longer used are still on the ingredients list of many vaccines indicating they do still use them. The poor infants who are being injected by these things don’t stand a chance. They will be making frequent doctors visits because they will be plague by a variety of illnesses. There are so many types of mycoplasma and there are no test for many of them so they have no real way to test vaccines for mycoplasma contaminations but studies have shown 65% to 80% of vaccines are contaminated.

Now imagine vaccines are contaminated with pathogens and now add to the fact they are known to activate dormant pathogens.

Vaccinations reactivate dormant infections.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4053360/

So we need to ask ourselves what is really causing people to become susceptible to paralysis? Why did this rarely occur but there are actually epidemics of it occurring now.

Certain infections like Lyme disease can also cause it but the test has a failure rate of up to 80% so if a person has Lyme their chances of getting properly diagnosed is very slim.

Very good DIY insect repellant.

 

I have read the research on this and it has been shown to work 10 times better then DEET.  When I spray it on no insects bother me. With biting insects carrying so many diseases and the CDC corruption causing Lyme to become epidemic it is a good idea to prevent illness by doing your best to avoid getting bit by any insects.

Make tea with catnip. About a table spoon per cup of water and a pinch of rose mary and cloves . To extent the amount of time it is effective add vanilla.

To make it for plants in the garden which I have used it for that also and it is very effective. Do the above mentioned things and then add the things below.

Smash a few cloves of garlic per gallon of water. Add a pinch of clove per cup of water. It doubles the time it is affective. Add ceyanne pepper. If you use the spray on your person you may want to leave the cayenne pepper out. If you have mold problems I found chelated copper works great. About 1 cap per 2 gallons of water worked great. Works great on people or in the garden. Mugwort also helps prevent mold on plants so you could add some tea made from mugwort to it.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

http://www.diabetes-book.com/truth-fats-iv/

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

Vitamin B12 status can effect our heart. I do not say deficiency because in some they could have high B12 levels but if they have high levels of farm chemicals from eating foods that contain them it will inhibit their bodies ability to convert it to a usable for. Those who are not converting will get headaches when they take B12 and my feel ill. Often times because they know low B12 can cause irregular heart beats they will give IV B12 which can make someone who is not converting very ill.

There are many things that can effect bile acid production. If it is inhibited we can develop diabetes because it can effect the whole body including the heart. It also effects the pancreas and when it is inhibited the pancreas will produce less digestive enzymes which will make our food sit in our digestive tract and ferment. This will make us bloated and will make it feel like we have a heavy weight sitting in our guts. This can cause H Pylori and Candida to go from commensal to pathogenic form. I have posted on how to balance our gut bacteria. It can also cause us to develop either acidosis or alkalosis. If you have candida you will have alkalosis and will experience anxiety and difficulty sleeping. If you have acidosis you will be very drowsy and experience episodes of severe depression. I have posted on all the above mentioned.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

Mugwort raises GABA which causes relaxation and is a calcium channel blocker. They claim thujone is toxic but it takes a very high amount to become toxic.

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.

The effect of high or low histamines.

 

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

 

stock-photo-young-man-sneezes-because-of-an-allergy-to-ragweed-1039352290

There are two sources of histamines endogenous and exogenous. Endogenous means from within or internally so is produced inside the body. Exogenous is introduced to or produced from outside the body. There are health issues with high or low histamines. Narcolepsy is in it’s own class it alternates between high and low histamine.

Histamine has many functions in the body , it is involved in the immune response, regulating physiological function in the gut. It acts as a neurotransmitter in the brain , spinal cord and uterus. It is involved in inflammation and the itching we feel. Histamine is produced by basophils and mast cells types of white blood cells. Histamines increases the permeability of blood vessels to allow white blood cells and some proteins to pass through so they can to engage pathogens in infected tissues.

Histamines generated in granules in mast cells and basophils. Most cells are more numerous in sites of the body that is more prone to injury like the mouth , nose, internal body surfaces and blood vessels. Non mast cell histamine in found in areas such as the brain. Another site of histamine storage and release is in enterochomaffin-like cell (ecl). This is an area in the gastric mucosa. Because of histamines properties it is versatile and able to interact and bind more easily.

The most important role of histamine is immunologic. When the mast cells or basophils have been sensitized to a pathogen by IgE antibodies that attach to their membranes will degranulate when exposed to the appropriate antigen. Certain amines, alkaloids found in plants can displace histamine in granules and cause their release. The break down of amino acids releases amines which are higher in aged meats. Lowering IgE can reduce histamine release.

Histamine is involved in anaphylaxis. Anaphylas is a rapid onset allergic reaction. It can involve itchy rashes, throat and tongue swelling, shortness of breath, lightheadedness, vomiting and low blood pressure. Sometimes they develop over hours. Vaccinations and toxins in our environment and food are known causes of a person developing allergies.

Histamine gated chloride channel is said to be expressed in the hypothalamus, thalamus, and intestines. It has synaptic inhibitory effects. It inhibits the GABA receptors making us more awake. It is also involved in diarrhea.

Histamines are the cause of runny noses. Increased vascular permeability caused by histamines causes fluid to leak from the capillaries into the tissue which leads to runny nose and watery eyes. Allergens can bind to IgE-loaded mast cells in the mucous membrane. This is what causes the sneezing, hyper secretion from glandular tissue, and congested nose from the vasodilation increasing the size of the blood vessels.

Histamine is a neural transmitter that is released from histamine neurons in the hypothalamus (hypothalamus links the nervous system to the endocrine system via the pituitary gland.) . These cells are located in a part of the hypothalamus known as tuberomammilian nucleus. The tuberomammilian nucleus consist largely of histamine neurons and is involved in sexual arousal, learning, memory, sleep and energy balance. The nuerons in this area comprise the brain’s histamine system. It contains nerve fibers that connect it to other areas of the brain.

Enterochromaffin-like cells located within the gastic glands of the stomach that stimulates a certain type of epithelials cell by binding to the end of the H2 receptor. Stimulation of the pariental cells (stomach epithelial cells that secret hydrochloric acid) induces the uptake of carbon dioxide and water from the blood, which is then converted to carbonic acid by the enzyme carbonic anhydrase. Inside the cytoplasm of the pariental cell the carbonic acid readily disassociates into hydrogen and bicarbonate ions. The bicarbonate ions diffuse back through the basilar membrane and into the blood stream while the hydrogen ions are pumped into the lumen of the stomach via specialized pumps. Histamine release is halted when the ph of the stomach starts to decrease. Certain drugs contain antagonist molecules that block the H2 receptor and prevent histamine from binding causing decreased hydrogen ion secretion. Antagonist is a type of receptor ligand that blocks or dampens biological response by binding to and blocking a receptor.

Though histamines have stimulatory effects on neurons it also has suppressive effects against the susceptibility to convulsions, and lesions in the brain.

Those with schizophrenia have increased histamine metabolites in their cerebrospinal fluid and the efficiency of the H1 receptor binding sites is decreased. This can be caused by the toxins in vaccinations, farm chemicals found in our food, heavy metals or inflammation.

Seeing all that histamines do demonstrates the importance of histamine homeostasis. To much can cause many health problems and if inhibited it can cause many health problems. Now knowing the types of histamine receptors will help identify where a specific problem may be. This helps identify the most probably cause of the health problems. For example vaccinations damage certain areas in the brain that that could effect the histamine receptors in our brain that effect our sleep and wake cycle. BT Toxins and the farm chemicals used on them cause leaky gut which can effect histamines throughout the body. Identifying the areas effected by histamines helps narrow the cause down. If you read studies on those who take frequent antihistamines they eventually develop autoimmune disorders which shows the importance of achieving homeostasis so once you have reach homeostasis you should work on maintaining it. Many over do things by continuing the same protocols even those the problem has been corrected which ends up creating other problems.

There are four types of histamine receptors H1-H4.

H1 is expressed in the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord). It is involved in the sleep wake cycle. It promotes wakefulness. It is involved in body temperature regulation, hormone regulation, it can simulate appetite, it constricts the airways, it can increase the sensation of pain, especially in the pelvis and stomach. It can also cause uticaria and itch perception.

H2 is expressed in the central nervous system, stomach, mast cells, vascular smooth muscle cells, cells in the heart and uterus. It has very few effects on the brain, most H2 receptor ligands cannot cross the blood brain barrier. Primarily involved in vasodilation and stimulation of gastric acid and appetite.

H3 Located primarily on basophils in the bone marrow, thymus, spleen and intestines. Plays a role in mast cell chemotaxis (movement cells in response to a chemical stimulant), sensation of itching, cytokine production and secretion, heightened pain in inner organs, involved in inflammation and allergies.

Some H1 agonist can cause drowsiness while H3 agonist can cause wakefulness.

In some illnesses T Cells attack the bodies own cells. H1 and H4 make the symptoms worse will H2 and H3 decrease the symptoms. They believe it is because H2 and H3 help with T Cell differentiation in the immune system. So this would help differentiate between our own cells and a pathogens, preventing the immune system from attacking it’s own cells.

Since histamine are an important part of the immunes system disorders involving histamines can have effects on our immune system. Things like mastocytosis and mast cell activation syndrome. They have some differences but the remedies for them are pretty much the same so I will probably just say mast cell disorders. They are caused by excess mast cell degranulation. Many of these illnesses they claim are genetic but they are finding it is the gut bacteria that modulate those genes that are inherited or that a person may be lacking. Also gene mutations usually do not present themselves unless many other things have went wrong. To reach homeostasis you have to address any other health issues especially leaky gut. When you have high histamines and your nose runs it will be clear or white colored. When it is from and infection it will be different it will be darker colored, I have seen green, brown when the infection is in the tissues, I have even seen yellow.

https://www.healthcoach7.com/2015/04/16/mast-cells-histamine-friend-or-foe/

https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-017-16019-8

Anaphylaxis is caused by mast cell degranulating.

Histaminosis is a disorder that is caused by a shortage of the enzymes that break down histamine. Diamine Oxidase and Histamine N-methyltransferase.

Diamine Oxidase (DAO) known as histiminase is an enzyme involved in the metabolism, oxidation and inactivation of histamine and other polyamines. Poly amines are found in aged meats and fermented foods. The highest levels of DAO are found in the digestive tract and placenta.

Histamine N-methyltransferase also reduces histamines. The Cytochrome P450 enzymes are involved. Glyphosate inhibits CytP450 Ezymes which raises histamine levels. This is also why it is very important to address inflammation because that can inhibit detoxing.

When you have problems with histamines it is very important to adjust your diet to reduce histamines and amines. Once you reach homeostasis you can slowly reintroduce them back into your diet. Because most of the solutions for addressing the various disorders overlap I won’t mention which disorder it helps because for the most part all will be helped by the things mentioned. Do your research to be better able to develop a protocol unique for you. We are all different and can not do a one size fits all protocol. Most of these symptoms can be caused by gut bacteria imbalance or leaky gut.

Histamine Deficiency

We have to cover both side of the coin. Histamine deficiency can also cause health problems. It is why once we achieve homeostasis we should work towards maintaining it and not continue with the protocols that may inhibit it. We could cause other health problems by pushing things in the opposite direction.

This site give the symptoms of histapenia, it mentions to take folic acid. Do not take it, it is man made and damages the body. Folate is natural and does not harm the body, I do not know why but many medical professionals do not know the difference between folate and folic acid.

Any ways the symptoms of low histamine levels are inhibited immune system, elevated serotonin, elevated dopamine, elevated norepinehrine, and low histamine. Low basophil levels, food senstivities which is not the same as food allergies, difficulty digesting food, anxiety, low libido, becoming obssesed with things, paranoia, auditory hallucination, hyperactivity, delusions of grandeur, excessive sleepiness. It can be caused by overmethylation. With low histamines the nose can be dry and you may get nose bleeds.

Jarisch-Herxheimer reaction. Also known as Herxing, can be life threatening.

Adult_deer_tick(cropped)

 

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

Herxing is what most who are ill get when they have a pathogen. It is from the excitotoxins and endotoxins produced from the dying pathogen. It is why we should ease into killing pathogens off. Too much die off can overwhelm the body causing sepsis then herxing is only a minor part of the problem. This happened to me. Many herbs kill pathogens just as well as antibiotics. Even though many naturals do not have the side effects medications do you can still develop sepsis if you kill too much too soon. The Jarisch-Herxheimer reaction can be dangerous. It is why I believe a person should slowly ease into killing pathogens. Some of the damage from a Herx reaction can be permanent, it could even cause death. When I took wormwood the herxing was very bad so I backed of and took a very low dose then I slowly built up as my pathogen load started coming down. You will be able to tell because the herx reaction will not be as bad but when you increase each time you will herx again until eventually you can take a full dose with very little herx reaction.

Porphyria is the illness, pyrroluria and kryptopyrolluria are symptoms of the illness.

Deer_Tick_-_geograph.org.uk_-_105508

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

Porphyria

If you have problems with consuming fats, like gall bladder pain, indigestion or feeling ill after eating them you most likely have Porphyria. You may be told you have Pyrolluria but it is a symptom of Porphyria. Meat and foods high in phenylalanine will increase porphyrins and ammonia levels in the body which will lead to Candida and H Pylori going from commensal to pathogenic. When it becomes more advanced the porphyrins will come out of the eyes and nose and are very caustic and will burn your skin. If you urinate and defecate them out the urinary tract and bladder will become irritated and when you defecate it will burn. 

Many know this as Pyrolluria or Kryptopyrolluria. You do not see updated research on those disorders because they discovered the high pyrroles was caused by a deficiency in various enzymes needed to break down uric acid. It causes high porphyrin levels. If you have Pyrroluria then look at the links and you will see the symptoms are the same. Pyrolluria is a symptom but not the problem. There are many things that can cause Porphyria , infection, drugs, chemicals, excess iron, stress, and to much sun. Fasting too much can also cause it. This can cause high ammonia levels because phenylalanine cannot be recycled.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Many of the things in this article helped me but you must make sure they are organic. There are many herbicide and pesticide residues on and in foods now and they will make us much worse. To learn more read my post on GMOs.

https://naturallyhealthynews.com/articles/healtharticles/understand-interstitial-cystitis/#comment-15991

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

Some have had good results at lowering histamines with Pentosanpolysulfate but you have to make sure you do not have sulfation issues before using it.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11061939

Studies have found that those with interstitial cystitis have an imbalance in their gut bacteria.

https://www.nature.com/articles/srep26083

Hydrangea root helps with TH17 imbalance which is common in those with interstitial cystitis and psoriasis.

https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/152822.php

Bradykinins contribute to IC, grape seed extract reduces bradykinins.

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

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

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

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

Many have said the supplement CystoProtek has helped them.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19046494

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

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23260235

Sources of EPCG, I got mine from nuts like walnuts and hickory nuts and beans especially legumes like peas.

Leaky gut, toxins especially aluminum in vaccines, fluoroquinolones, glyphosate and glufosinsate can cause glycosylation issues. This has been found to be a problem in IC.

https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1111/j.1464-410X.2008.08163.x

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

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

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

Cox is over expressed in those with IC. Natural COX inhibitors help reduce the severity of IC it is also a common cause of leaky gut and is why many with IC have digestive issues. Inflammation also causes over expression of COX.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4461170/

APF was found to be high in those with IC. I research this and found that lacking certain commensal bacteria ,inflammation and high histamines caused this. By using a suppository made of coconut oil with the strain of bacteria needed many found relief. It is also why many with IC have vulvadynia. Oxalates also will cause vulvadynia.

High adrenaline levels can be caused by many toxins especially GMOs and the toxins used on them. This can result in IC.

https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1002/nau.22542

This is a study of the many issues that can effect the bladder. It also shows why so many are effected differently and each has a variety of different symptoms.

Environmental factors determine who will be prone to IC more then genetics.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4442798/

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

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

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

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

https://www.hindawi.com/journals/jir/2018/7357162/

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

When chemical induced ischemia-reperfusion has occurred the estrogen and nicotinic pathways work together to reduce inflammation. 17-B-Estradiol and a nicotinic agonist help reduce inflammation.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2189612/

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

Infection and metabolic issues can cause raised ammonia levels throughout the body and cause a break down of many things. Since the body gets rid of ammonia through the bladder it causes damage to the bladder. The infection or metabolic issue must be addressed.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4546155/

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4057615/

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

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

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

Acacia gum helped heal my gut. When we have digestive issues it can cause IC by raising histamines and inflammation in the body.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2763258/

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

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

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

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

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

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

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1906415/

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

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

Antibiotics and farm chemicals kill our good gut bacteria that protects us from infection.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5911494/

We have commensal bacteria that are related to pathogenic. When they are killed by antibiotics or farm chemicals we lose that protection and become prone to illness from the pathogenic ones. Ever notice how many will eat the same contaminated food but only some of them would get ill. They liked the commensal relatives of the pathogenic bacteria so were not protected. Unfortunately the only probiotic I found that contains the commensal E Coli strain is VSL#3 and it is very expensive.

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

https://www.nature.com/articles/ismej201464

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

Here is where it can get confusing. Some strains of lactobacillus are pathogenic. We have to make sure the strains we take are ones that reduce inflammation and histamines.

P53 levels are found to be low in most IC cases. I did not pursue increasing this because most cancers have high levles of P53. I think it would be better to find out what is inhibiting it and correct that rather then trying to increase it.

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

Canadian Thistle

 

Cirsium Arvense

I  have written this for educational purposes. If in doubt don’t, make certain you know your plants. This is not medical advice and should not be taken as such.

Canadian Thistle has many benefits but is very invasive. I grow it but I keep it isolated and I cut the tops off before the seeds can spread. It is very very difficult to control if you let it go to seed. It can spread through seeds they are similar to dandelion and how they are dispersed. They also can spread through their roots which are very aggressive.

The leaves are edible but you must make sure you get the pricklys off. The roots are edible but if you eat too many they will make you gassy. It helped me a lot with my fight with Lyme. I do enjoy the taste but it is a lot of work getting the jaggy parts off the leaves. The roots have a lot of health benefits also. I like peeling the leaves downward. That removes many of the prickles from the stalk of the young plants, then I light crape it with a knife. Then I eat the stalk, it is a very good tasting vegetable. Has a very sweet taste and is very juicy.

Barberry

 

Barberry

Berberis Vulgaris

I  have written this for educational purposes. If in doubt don’t, make certain you know your plants. This is not medical advice and should not be taken as such.

Has antioxidants, contains berberine which is known to fight many pathogens. Reduces oxidative stress, inflammation and oxLDL. Has been shown to fight cancer. When I was a kid and I would get ill I would crave the leaves from this plant although it is the berry that is used. When the leaves get red they get very bitter. It has even been shown to help with acne. Has been shown to help with fibrosis.

The bush is invasive and is not native to the US. It can spread and cause problems. I try and isolate my bush and get the berries before the birds to prevent it from spreading. I had to move my bush so I just ripped it out and gathered a few small ones to replant. They are the ones you see in the pictures.

Bone Health

 

 

Remember I am not a medical professional. I am relaying things I have learned from other Lyme sufferers or from research I have done. When you implement any supplements or diet changes only do one at a time so if something doesn’t agree with you or you have a reaction you can easily identify what caused the reaction. I am listing on these pages what I have observed or seen studies to support that they have worked. It is best to alternate the things you use. I have found that works the best it also keeps things that would be otherwise safe to use from building up to the point where they become toxic like some vitamins.  Some things can take three to four days before you will realize the effects.

Avoid GMOs at all cost the terrible impact they have on our health has been well research and documented. They have been shown to cause leaky gut syndrome, cancer, blood disorders, digestive disorders etc. The toxins they produce have even been found to cross the blood brain barrier and the placenta.

 

Bone Health

 

Detoxing

To fight infection you need to make sure you detox everyday. So I will make a list of  things important for cleansing the body of toxins.

 

 1 Water  make sure that you drink lots of unchlorinated water. Chlorine is toxic to the body and very difficult for the body to get rid of. If you cannot avoid chlorinated water then I would recommend taking a boron supplement it is one of the few things that can remove chlorine from the body.

2 Dandelion you can use this as a tea as greens in a salad some like to cook them. I love deep frying the flowers. I have a post on here on how I deep fry them.  Dandelions have been shown to remove heavy metals and many other toxins from the body. It has many micro-nutrients and has been shown to hinder and even reverse cancer. It has been shown to protect and heal the renal system.

3 Potassium Iodide  protects the body from radioactive iodine. Iodine is needed for the proper function of the lymphatic system which helps to develop immunity to pathogens we come in contact with. It also bone in bone health. Helps remove many toxins from the body. I would not take anymore then 50 mcg a day.

4 Chlorophyll  helps to detox is one of the few things that will help to remove mercury from the body. It also helps to support and protect the health of our blood. Has many antioxidant properties. 

It did upset my stomach if I took it on an empty stomach but it fights candida and many other infections. 

Good sources of chlorophyll is any produce that is green.

5 Citruline for some it is difficult for their bodies to remove ammonia from their bodies. If our citruline  levels get low our bodies cannot remove ammonia. Citruline helps remove ammonia from our bodies. It also helps fight infection and prevents muscle fatigue.

Good sources of citruline are melons, squash, cucumbers, pumpkins, fish, and eggs.

 

Fighting Infection

 

Remember when pathogens die they put out toxins so detoxing must be a daily thing. One thing I did not mention earlier that helped with my detoxing was salt water with lemon and honey. There are many natural ways to fight infection. I am listing as many as I can to make it easier for each person to find something that may help them because each of us has certain herbs that are more readily available to us depending on our location globally. The list is big I would recommend you choose things based on your research of the herb. Www.webmd.com is a great resource for information on drug interactions and side effects of herbs.

 

Herbs To Help Fight Infections

 

1  Teasel Root Tincture   helps pull infections from bone and tissue. Also has antimicrobial properties. I would not use this one until you have gotten the Lyme infection reduced in your body because even though I am doing much better it still made me herx for a week or so. You have to start out slow with about 5 drops and thing work up to about 15. Use your judgment on what works best for you. 

2 Chinese Skullcap  has many antimicrobial and antioxidant properties. Do not confuse with American Skullcap they have different health benefits.

3 Honeysuckle Tea  very good at killing bacteria and many other types of infection. Also contains micro-nutrients and antioxidants. This is another one that made me herx but it helped me with my myocarditis. It has also been shown to heal nerve and smooth muscle tissue and support the cardiovascular system. 

4 Coconut Oil  the fats in coconut oil help protect cells from damage. Also has very good antimicrobial properties. It is very good at fighting Candida. Has been shown to even help can pass through the blood brain barrier to protect the brain and has been shown to reduce seizures. 

5  Hops Tea  has been shown to fight many infections, has also been shown to inhibit and reduce cancer.  This is also know to remove toxins from the body and has been shown to protect the renal system. Promotes proper function of the thyroid and has been shown to protect the cardiovascular system. !!Be careful if you over use it you can get diarrhea and nausea and  in very large amount it can cause seizures so I would space my usage of this out!!

Use two teaspoons per cup of  boiling water.

6 Probiotic With Active Acidophilus  the higher the number of cultures the better it is. This helps restore the good bacteria and fight the bad bacteria especially in the digestive tract.

7  Yogurt and Kefir help restore the good bacteria and fight the bad bacteria especially in the digestive system.

8 Fermented foods like Sauerkraut and  Kimchi  they also help fight the bad bacteria and replace the bodies bad bacteria in the digestive tract. 

9  Bromelain the is extracted from pineapple it helps to reduce pain. Has many antimicrobial properties and has been shown to kill Candida.  It also promotes muscle and tissue repair.

10  Sulfur  has antimicrobial properties and has also been shown to kill Candida and many other pathogens. It keeps the Lymph Glands healthy. 

Good sources of sulfur are onions, cabbage, brussel sprouts, cauliflower,  broccoli, kale and egg yolks. This is one of the few times cooking will actually increase the release of the sulfur so your body can more easily absorb it.

11 Barberry  contains berberine which has been shown to kill bacteria and many other pathogens. Has been shown to protect the cardiovascular system. Has also been shown to reduce seizures. 

12 Oregano Oil  this has been shown to fight many pathogens. This one made me herx but I could actually feel the results. After about 3 days I could feel my body getting better which indicated to me that I was beating the Lyme. I have had a difficult time finding it now though and have run out. 

 

Supporting Immune System

 

Supporting the immune system is important because when we have an infection or even cancer it can wear our immune system down. I don’t really believe for the most part in stimulating it because that can cause other problems. There are parts of the immune system that I will discuss later that Lyme sufferers could try to stimulate. 

1 Aloe Vera  the stomach is key to our immune system if it does not heal then all the other things we do will be futile. Aloe Vera helps heal leaky gut. I have had the best results with liquid aloe vera capsules.

It has also been shown to kill things like Candida. It helps regulate the immune response.

2  Rehmann helps with detoxing has been shown to ease fibromyalgia symptoms. It also helps regulate the immune system.  Has been shown to improve bone health. !! Can cause bloating!!

3  Reishi Mushroom Extract  strengthens immune system. Has been shown to prevent and reduce cancer. Has also been shown to protect the cardiovascular system.

4  Wormwood/walnut/clove Tincture  this is very good at fighting many types of infection. I like getting the combined tincture because it seems to work better. Clove is very good at soothing nausea.

This helped my blurred vision, head aches, and mental confusion. It is also know for fighting Candida. They all are known for their antimicrobial properties. !! Do not use large quantities and do not take for more then a month. Follow directions on bottle!!

5 Fermented Wheat Germ  strengthens the immune system. Alleviates fatigue. Shown to inhibit and reduce cancer. Also high in protein.

6 Grape Seed Extract  this is another one that really helped my myocarditis. Grape Seed Extract strengthens the immune system and heals and protects the cardiovascular system and smooth muscle throughout the body. It has been shown to protect the DNA. Also has Reseveratol which is know for protecting and healing RNA and DNA. It also has some antimicrobial properties. 

 

Pain Relief

 

When we are ill we can suffer from a lot of pain. I prefer natural methods of dealing with them because even over the counter drugs really damage the body.

 

1  Valerian relaxant, eases symptoms of pain. Also eases menstrual cramps. Has been shown to reduce food allergies. !! Only take at night has very good sedative properties, take before you are ready to go to sleep!!

2  Dark Chocolate  helps produce hormones that protect us from pain and help the body heal.

3  Birch Leaf Extract  works like aspirin. Also reduces damage to the body because it has antioxidants.

4  Devils Claw  eases joint pain

5  Cherries  contain anthrocyanins which are know to reduce pain and has many antioxidants for healing.

6  Vitamin D3 aids in calcium absorption, many who have osteoporosis have been found to be lacking this. It has been found to ease the symptoms of pain.

7  Avena (Oatstraw)  can help balance our electrolytes. Has many nutrients necessary for bone healing. Also known to promote better function of the thyroid. Has been shown to improve the health of the cardiovascular system. Has relaxant qualities. This one knocked me out but most I talked to said it did not do that with them. I did notice the health benefits though. I used in in the tea form.

8  Butchers Broom Extract  reduces leg pain, improves the circulation of blood. Has also been shown to strengthen bones and heal connective tissue.

9  Chamomile  reduces muscle spasms and pain. Has also been shown to reduce menstrual cramps.

 

Bone Healing

 

When we have any type of illness our bones are usually affected so we need to support the healing of our bone.

 

1 L-Arginine  improves exercise tolerance. Improves blood flow which helps with the deep down healing. Helps regulate creatine levels.

Good sources of L-Arginine is nuts, legumes, sunflower seeds, and sesame seeds.

2  L-Theanine  has a calming affect on our brain. Has been shown to fight cancer and heart disease. It also helps prevent infection and prevents muscle fatigue.

Good source of L-Theanine  is green tea, can buy in extract form. !! Just like some vitamins it can be toxic in high doses!!

The best sources are green colored produce.

3  Tongkat Ali (Eurycoma Longifolia)  this enhances bodies adaptive response to exercise, also increases testosterone production.

4  Muira Puama  increases healing hormones.

5  Maca Root  gives the body energy. It is high in micro-nutrients, vitamins and minerals the body needs. Stimulates and nourishes the hypothalamus and pituitary glands which control all other glands. It can aid the body in achieving homeostasis. 

6  Tribulus Terrestis (Puncture Vine) fights infections. Also know to increase testosterone levels. Helps to increase muscle mass. Aids in blood circulation.

7  Panax Ginseng  impedes cancer growth and aids in cancer cell destruction. Improves circulation which helps with healing. 

8  Vitamin C  has many healing properties has been shown to help fight cancer. Many other nutrients need vitamin C to work. Also has antioxidant properties. The best type of vitamin C to use is Liposomal Vitamin C. It is more readily absorbed by the body. 

9  Vitamin E (A-tocopherol)  helps with deep down healing and has antioxidant properties. If there is a DL in the front of the name it is man made and the body has a difficult time using it so I would stay away from supplements that have a DL in them for example DL-A-tocopherol.

Good sources are sunflower seeds, nuts, spinach, broccoli, kiwi, mango, and tomatoes.

10  Horsetail Herb (Aquamin)  this has silica which the bones need to stay healthy. It also needs silica to build new bone. !! Do need use to often, I have seen conflicting studies on this some say that to much silica can cause kidney stones and others stated that it has not been proven to cause kidney stones so I would space my usage of this out. I used the tea form. !!

11  Ginger   has many micro-nutrients and antioxidants the body needs for healing.

12  Fish Oil has Omega-3s which are know for their antioxidant qualities also helps with nutrient distribution. The body needs Choline to process fats. !! Make sure they say mecury free!!

13  Glucosimine and Chondroiton  Helps repair joints and cartilage.

14 Vitamin K2  Prevents Osteoporosis. Protects us from cardiovascular disease. Has been shown to reduce cancer. Has also been shown to improve Alzheimer conditions. It controls were calcium goes and does not go. Helps with the function of muscles. Also protects nerve cells from oxidative stress. When we are ill our sodium pumps can shut down this can help prevent that.

Good sources are meat and milk from grass fed animals. For some reason grain fed animals do not produce as much.

15  Ginkgo Biloba  aids in blood circulation which helps with healing.

16  Selenium  needed for the proper synthesis of hormones so we can fight disease and heal. Also helps repair DNA.

Good sources are sea food, brazil nuts, milk products, and greens. Make sure if you take in a supplement you do not get too much. No more then 150 mcg because your body can store it. I would space out using it if you take it in supplement form. If you take it in supplement form you want to look for Selenomethione.

17  Potassium Iodide  I mentioned this earlier but many people are low in this. It is very important in the function of the lymphatic system and healing of the bone.

18  Cholesterol  helps balance hormones also keeps the lymphatic system from becoming clogged. It is integral in all functions of the body. It also functions as an antioxidant and protects our DNA. The type of cholesterol our body needs is Oxidized Cholesterol found in unprocessed foods. Good sources of cholesterol are free range chicken eggs, milk products from grass feed animals. Again I don’t know why but grain fed animals produce a bad type of cholesterol. Avocados, legumes, and beans are also good sources of cholesterol.

19  Choline  we need choline to break down fats so our bodies can use them. Choline also helps with nerve repair. Helps provide the body with more energy.

Good sources of choline are eggs, and milk products.

20  Phospholipids  these are a type of fat that is very good for the body. They help protect the cells from pathogens. They also aid in healing. They also help the body produce energy better. Has been shown to aid with healing leaky gut syndrome.

The best source of these is butter if you are lactose intolerant then you could use ghee which is not purified butter. It is butter with the milk proteins removed. Butter and Ghee also contain Butyric Acide which helps break food down so that we can absorb more nutrients. Butyric acid also protects the digestive system and intestines and has been shown reduce cancer. 

21  Butyric Acid  it is produced when we eat fiber that the body has a difficult time digesting it has been shown to have many health benefits including fighting infections in our digestive system to breaking our food down better.

22  Pickles and Pickle Juice  when we are ill it is hard to keep our electrolytes balanced. Pickle help balance our electrolytes. They also contain many micro-nutrients that our bones need for healing. The juice contains many of the same benefits so don’t dump it drink it. Some of the benefits of the vinegar in the juice is it disrupts pain receptors thus reducing pain. It also has antimicrobial properties and reduces Candida.

23  Red Clover Tea  I have heard of this one causing gas pains but have not been able to confirm it. I have talked to some who have used it and didn’t complain. It has been shown to strengthen bones and increase estrogen production.

24  Olive Oil  olive oil helps maintain a healthy cardiovascular system, it also reduces the risk of stroke. It has been shown to prevent the death of DNA and encourages tumor cell death. It also contain Oleanic Acid which helps maintain Nrf2 pathways. When Nrf2 pathways are not functioning properly there is a lot of damage throughout the body especially neurological. Oleanic acid cuts down on oxidative stress.

25  Bone Broth  has been shown to heal leaky gut and also helps build bone marrow. 

26  Tumeric  contains Curcumin which has been shown to fight cancer and has antimicrobial properties. It has also been shown to reduce MS symptoms. Tumeric also helps protect the renal system. Black Pepper helps increase the bio-availability of Curcumin.

27  Iron  helps metabolize protein and reduces fatigue. When we are ill we can lose iron. Iron also strengthens the immune system.

Good sources of iron are legumes, lentils, grains, leafy green vegetables, turnips, fish, and meat.

28  Multivitamin  take a good quality multivitamin if you can. I would not take more then a few times a week because usually if you do you only end up peeing the rest of them out.

 

 

Lyme Sufferers Only

 

This is one that I am nervous mentioning because it could result in someone getting very ill. If you have Lyme and your immune system has been suppressed there are things that will help, only do this if you have had the numbers of the spyrochete lowered in your body or it may set off a nightmarish cytokine response. Lyme decreases IL-4 to stealth itself from the immune system.

Echinacia (E. angustifolia and E. Pallida) are the types to use. This has been know to increase IL-4. Also a Chinese herb called Furling has been shown to increase IL-4 production.

 

Modern day wheat can be hard for our bodies to process. If you are like me and if you can find it try getting Einkorn Wheat. It is the type that our ancestors used and it is easier for our bodies to process.

 

   

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Later Stage Lyme or Illness And Healing

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

Later Stage Lyme and Illness

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

Detoxing

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Healing The Gut

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Electrolytes

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

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

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

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

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

For Infection

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

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

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

Deep Healing

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

Vitamin D3 and CoQ10 help with deep down energy and repair but have to be taken with an oil because they are oil soluble.

Hyaluronic acid and glucosamine chondroiton help with joint and skin repair.

Flavanoids help with repair and inflammation. Most fruits and vegetables contain them but some very good sources of those are parsleys,onions, blue berries, tea, bananas, citrus fruits, dark chocolate, red wine, skin on peanuts and sophora root.

Lyme and other illnesses can attack the smooth muscle which has effects on the whole body. All the things mentioned above help smooth muscle heal but we need to get ammino acids. There are various kinds of ammino acids.

Lysine which is found in catfish,beef,chicken,azuki bean, milk, pumpkin or squash seeds, eggs, peas, lentils, beans, and quinoa.

Methionine is found in eggs, sesame seeds,cheese, brazil nuts, chicken, nuts, fish, pork, wheat germ is usually Gmo now days, peanuts and lentils.

Isoleucine is found in eggs, turkey, chicken, legumes, cereal grains, almonds, oats, beans, brown rice, sea weed make sure it is not from a source of contaminated water.

Becareful with the kelp and other seaweed, they are high in iodine. We need iodine but if we get too much it is not good.

Tryptophon is found in eggs, spirulina, cod, cheese, sesame seeds, pork, lamb, chocolate, milk, rice, quino, potoatoes, tamarind, banana, and beans and legumes.

Myoinoitol is found in fruit, beans and nuts.

Threonine is found in poultry, cottage cheese and other milk products, fish, meat, lentils, black turtle beans, and sesame seeds.

Glutamine is found in cauliflower, eggs, broccoli, cod, spinach, milk, chicken kidney, quinoa, grapefruit, peanuts, almonds and brown rice.

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

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

I added resvratol because it helps with nerve damage it is found in wine chocolate and dark berries. Some other things that help with nerve damage are the Omega3 fatty acids, Good sources of those are camelina, purslane, dark colored berries, kiwi, goose berry, perilla, chia seed, flax seed, and nuts.

Polyphenols enhance the immune system, also helps heal the lungs. Some of the best sources are cloves,anise,cocoa powder, oregano, celery seeds, flax seeds, nuts, elderberries, black olives, chicory, dried sweet basil, plums, most dark berries like black berries, and ginger.

Alpha Lipoic Acid is good for the cardiovascular system. It also has the ability to rehabilitate other intioxidants. Your body produces it so detoxing and supporting the renal system should help with it. Some sources of it are meat and organs from grass feed animals, broccoli, spinach, and postatoes.

Anthocyanins are neuro protective. You get those from dark colored fruits and vegetables. Black berries, plums, cran berries, blue berries, bananas (careful some are GMO), red cabage, asparagus, grapes and wine.

Biotin regulates gene expression. Some food sources are egg yolk, liver, whole grain (Non GMO), cheese, pork, salmon,

If you having thyroid problems you may want to pay attention to your iodine because it is a key component of thyroid hormones. Food sources of it are seafood, seaweed (make sure it does not come from contaminated water), dairy products, grains, (Non GMO), poultry and eggs.

Selenium is part of the amino acid processes for gene encoding and regulation of the bodies cells.

If you are having thyroid problems ginsenosides may help. It has been shown to stimulate pituatary glands and adrenal. It is found in ginseng.

Asparagine is kind of like the bodies back up battery. It is necessary for the deep down energy your body needs. Sources of it are asparagus, potatoes, legumes, nuts and seeds like pumpkin and squash.

Quercetin is an antioxident and provides energy to the mitochondria. Quercetin also helps keep the heart healthy. Foods that contain it are canned capers, onions, red and dark colored produce. Quercetin is lost during cooking so the less you cook it the better.

Lignans reduce risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer, also know for helping with chronic fatigue. Safe for women it will help men but will do the opposite if used in to high of a dose. Food sources of it are ground flax seed, sunflower seeds, kale, broccoli, cashews, and berries.

Sulphanes help fight neurodegenerative disease and cancer. Good sources of them are eggs, broccoli, kale, brussel sprouts, cabbage and a little in onions.

Valine and tyrosine is and amino acids that helps with liver disease and metabolic disorders. They also aid in regulating the abosrbtion of other amino acids. Sources of valine and tyrosine are cheese, beef, lamb, chicken, pork, chicken, nuts, fish, beans, mushrooms, pumpkin and squash seeds.

Lycopene helps protect the heart and studies have shown that it could possibly help heal some damage. Sources of Lycopene are cooked tomatoes, grapefruit, papay, purple cabbage, mango, and carrots.

Love and Happiness

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

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

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

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

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

Vassopressin will be produced if your electrolytes are balanced.

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

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

Diet To Help With POTS, AV Block And Detox Issues And Over All Well Being.

Orthotac_(CardioNetworks_ECGpedia)660px-Tachycardia_ECG_paper.svg

 

 

Key Foods For Our Health.

This article should help healthy people as well as unhealthy. In dealing with Lyme I have learned a lot about how our diet can influence the body. Issues discussed in this blog can help if you don’t seem to get much energy from the food you eat, to helping with inflamation and cell repair.  What I have found is the things that play one of the biggest rules in protecting your health is Butyric Acid and Phospholipids.   I discuss what your body needs to increase the levels of them  . From the research I have done I believe they are the key to our health so eating foods to increase the levels of them we can dramatically improve our health. Improving our bodies production of Butyric Acid and Phospholipids has been shown to help fight cancer. Whatever you do stay away from caffeine , sugar , and alcohol , they are like poison to people who are ill. I left a very important part out of this article so I am going to post it at the end of the bottom. It is the importance of giving your body what it needs to support and repair RNA. (Ribonucleic Acid)   If you do not do that then this information will help but not to the degree that it could. By supporting the RNA you can actually reverse a little of the ageing. Many things I mention you may not be able to eat from gut dysbiosis or leaky gut. I have posted on those.

 POTS AV Block And Detox Issues.

Many Lyme sufferers develop POTS (Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome) , AV Blocks (Atrio ventricular blocks) and will sometimes develop Detox issues caused by MTHFR mutation. If you want to know more about MTHFR this site is the best at explaining it http://mthfr.net/ . So you have to choose your food to help your body heel from the damage Lyme causes. Lyme causes a lot of cell damage. So our bodies need phospholipids to help with the repair of the damage Lyme has caused. Because of the cell damage Lyme Sufferers have a lot of swelling including in the heart. The phospholipids help in the repair of the body, they also help in getting the inflammation in our bodies down. Phospholipids are amazing they are even key in helping our bodies fight infection.

512px-USDA_-_Basic_7_Food_GroupsPhospholipids

To help our body to produce the phospholipids we need to make sure we eat the food that contains the nutrients it needs. I put together a list of foods that will help to do that. Cows Ghee has most of the vitamins and nutrients mentioned below so it is like a supper food. Especially if it is from milk produced by a grass feed cow ,sophora root is another thing loaded with a lot of the nutrients listed below . Also make sure you drink lots and lots of water. Those who have trouble with fats may have pyrrole issues I have discussed in my post on porphyria.

  1. Omega-3 fatty acids – Camelina , Purslane , Black Raspberry , Kiwifruit seed (chinese goose berry) , Perilla , Chia seed , Flax seed or Flax seed oil  , Butternuts , Persian Walnuts , Pecans , Hazel nuts.

  2. Amino Acids – this is going to be the longest because there are different types of amino acids your body needs to produce. Those with phenylketonuria will need to avoid animal flesh for a while because it will raise ammonia levels from the build up of phenylalanine. 

A) Lysine – Catfish , beef , chicken , azuki bean , milk , pumpkin seed , egg , pea, lentil , lentil , kidney bean , winged bean (Goa bean) , chick pea , navy bean , Quinoa .

B) Methionine – Egg , Sesame seeds , cheese , brazil nuts , chicken , fish , pork , wheat germ , oat , peanuts , corn , lentils .

C) Isoleucine – eggs , sea weed (be careful eating too much of this it is high in iodine, you don’t want to get your iodine levels to high.) , turkey , chicken , cereal grains , legumes , wheat germ , almonds , oat , peas , lentils , brown rice , beans .

D) Tryptophan – eggs , spirulina , cod , cheese , sesame seed , pork , turkey , chicken ,beef , oats , lamb , chocolate , milk , rice , Quinao , potatoes , tamarind , banana , beans , legumes .

E) Myo-inoitol – fruit , beans , nuts .

F) Threonine – poultry , cottage cheese , fish , meat , lentils , black turtle bean , sesame seeds .

G) Glutamine – beef, chicken , fish , eggs , milk and dairy products , cabbage , beets , beans , spinach , parsley .

H) Choline – Cauliflower , eggs , broccoli , cod , spinach , wheat germ , milk , tofu , chicken, kidney beans , Quinoa , grapefruit , peanuts , almonds , brown rice .

Flavonoids. – These also help in healing and also help with inflammation. Most fruits and vegetables that you eat contain them but there are sources that are very high in flavonoids. Parsley , onions , blue berries , tea , bananas , all citrus fruits , red wine , dark chocolate , The red skin on peanuts , sophora root .

Vitamins – Lyme causes a lot of vitamin deficiencies which can be deficiencies in zinc , vitamin C , magnesium , iron , vitamin A , vitamin D , vitamin E . Also can cause deficiencies in the B complex vitamins. Here is a list of some sources of the B complexes. I prefer the natural source because I have a bad reaction to supplements containing the B complexes.

    1. B1(Thiamine) – cereal grains , lentils , green vegetables , fish , egg , whole milk , meat , pork , nuts .

    2. B2 (Riboflavin) – chicken , fish , eggs , milk and milk products , green vegetables .

    3. B3 (Niacin) – chicken , fish , whole wheat , legumes .

    4. B6 (Pyridoxine ) – Potatoes , read meat , beans , poultry , eggs .

    5. Folate (folic acid ) – liver, beans , green vegetables , most fruits and vegetables, legumes .

    6. Vitamin B12 (Cobalamin) – fish , read meat , poultry , milk and milk products , eggs , shell fish.

    7. Biotin – liver , eggs or the best sources but this one is distributed throughout our food so just about anything you eat will have it.

    8. Pantothenic Acid – yogurt , avocado , legumes , lentils , sweet potatoes, mushrooms , broccoli .

Butterschmalz-3

Butyric Acid – aides in digestion , helps break down food so the body can convert it into energy , helps protect the gut and intestine , also helps with nerve repair and has been shown to fight cancer. The best source of this is Ghee but you can also get it by eating oats , diary products , sweet potatoes , fruits and vegetables , nuts , it is also produced by the intestines from eating fiber. If you have Lyme your enzymes could be off so you should take a probiotic to help in producing butyric acid.

Salt Water – Something I did forget to mention is that you should add salt water to your diet because Lyme messes your electrolytes up.

Repairing RNA, Helping Raynaud Phenomenon.

The is something I missed when I originally wrote this article. It is something I did not take into consideration. The RNA in your body gets damage by the Lyme and Co-infections. Ribonucleic Acid helps to repair the DNA. So I need to add this to the diet. The benefits of this diet change will be that it will help with Raynaud Phenomenon and even reverse a little of the aging in your body. Now to help RNA repair and function better we need to increase the bodies intake of nucleic acids. This will also help with cellular energy production in the body. When I research this most studies that I read were they got the nucleic acids from meat and other animal flesh showed that kidney stones could develop. The studies I read that were done to see what happened to vegetarians did not mentions kidneys stones forming so I am assuming that meant they did not have that problem when getting them from fruits and vegetables. This diet should also help in muscle repair and better muscle function. This will also help with bone repair because the foods that contain nucleic acid also contain magnesium. So here is the list of foods.

  1. Just about all green fruits and vegetables. Green fruits and vegetables are high in chlorophyll which is very good at chelating and helps remove heavy metals and toxins from your body. You can buy liquid chlorophyll but what I have found is the body must not be used to getting it in that quantity and if you take it on an empty stomach it can give you and upset stomach. Be careful with greens like spinach and kale they are high in oxalates which is common in those who are chronically ill I have posted on that. 

  2. Milk

  3. Lentils

  4. Pea and other legumes.

  5. Beans

  6. Radishes

  7. Onions

  8. Scallions

  9. Mushrooms

If you are interested in herbals that may help you I have another post on herbals that I have used that helped me a lot. That is at this post.   https://iamajuicer.wordpress.com/2015/01/23/herbals-i-used-in-the-fight-with-lyme/
