Herbs that help with infection.

 

 

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

This is a list of things that help with infection. I have literally seen hundreds of studies showing vaccines make pathogens more virulent. Knowing pathogens are going to become more deadly we need to learn how to protect ourselves. Almost all we were taught about germs is wrong. If you read my post on things science has wrong you will see that germ theory and terrain theory are wrong and have been proven to be wrong. Yet almost all modern day science is based on a theory that has repeatedly been proven wrong. This makes most modern day research to be flawed from the start. So we need to seek answers ourselves because if we do not we will not find them because modern science has headed the same direction it often times does in history. It has become corrupted by the greedy and power hungry. This results in the promotion of science that is very very flawed. If you also read my post on it is not your genes it is your gut you will also see flaws in other areas of science. I even discuss how the immune system really works.

I find Buhner’s list of herbs to be the most effective and safest of those I have seen listed.

Up to 80% of vaccines are suspected of being contaminated with mycospasma. If not treated in time it can lead to many forms of chronic illness.

Germ theory is wrong and has been proven wrong many times. So to heal we need to get the crazy ideas they endoctrinated everyone with out of our heads.

If possible it is good to breast feed infants, it protects them from infection.

I do not believe in kissing an infant on the lips. There are valid reasons for this and people get angry when I mention it but the babies depend on us to protect them. What if someone who kisses the baby on the lips has been recently vaccinated. There is a good chance they are carrying a mycoplasma because vaccine have been shown to be contaminated with mycoplasma. Also vaccines have been shown to cause more virulent diseases to form. Those could be transmitted to the infant thus endangering their life.

Before treating an infection you should read my post on endotoxemia to avoid developing sepsis.

Often times infections can be linked to a vitamin deficiency. For example respiratory infection has been shown in many studies to be linked to a vitamin D deficiency. Now days this could also indicate high mercury or high glyphosate levels because they interfere with our bodies ability to convert vitamin D. In those instances vitamin D3 may help. Do not take excessive amounts of vitamin D. Anything over 4000 IU can cause oxalates to form which are very harmful to the body. I have posted on that.

https://www.bmj.com/content/356/bmj.i6583

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29569355

Vitamin D deficiency puts us at a higher risk for getting TB.

https://www.e-epih.org/journal/view.php?doi=10.4178/epih.e2018035

Vitamin A deficiency dramatically increase our risk of infection and immune dysfunction. This is one vitamin we want to achieve homeostasis with though because excess amounts can lead to increased risk of cancer. It is best to try and get your vitamins from food sources when possible.

https://www.annualreviews.org/doi/abs/10.1146/annurev.nutr.21.1.167?rfr_dat=cr_pub%3Dpubmed&url_ver=Z39.88-2003&rfr_id=ori%3Arid%3Acrossref.org&journalCode=nutr

Vitamin A deficiency makes us more susceptible to measles.

http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/91/5/1014

Thiamine may help with HIV infection.

https://www.ijidonline.com/article/S1201-9712(12)01312-4/fulltext

Those with low thiamine levels have more neurological damage during infection and worse mental outcomes.

https://www.psychosomaticsjournal.com/article/S0033-3182(16)30059-7/fulltext

https://www.hindawi.com/journals/crinm/2018/3901619/

Many nutrient deficiencies have been linked to increased infection especially vitamin B6.

http://www.mdpi.com/2072-6643/8/3/124

Low selenium levels may make us more susceptible to viral infection.

http://www.mdpi.com/1999-4915/7/1/333

https://academic.oup.com/advances/article/6/1/73/4558052

Low selenium status of a mother makes a baby more prone to infection the first six months of life, it also causes a lower neurological development rate.

http://www.mdpi.com/2072-6643/9/5/486

There are instances were minerals will feed microbes for example zinc feeds the pathogenicity of Salmonella.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28874447

I have posted on oxidative stress. Redox homeostasis is very important in preventing infection and the damage caused by infection.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25401329

http://www.mdpi.com/1422-0067/18/11/2459

This is why it is important to get the nutrients needed to support the production of metallothionein.

http://www.mdpi.com/1422-0067/18/10/2197

Cholesterol is needed by the immune system. If we are deficient it can result in immune dysfunction. Since cholesterol is and antioxidant and anti-inflammatory it stands to reason we would suffer ill health effects when deficient in cholesterol.

https://academic.oup.com/qjmed/article/96/12/927/1533176

Cholesterol is needed to produce the hormones we need to protect us from viral infections. This is why if we have issues that cause our production of thiols to be inhibited like high mercury, high glyphosate, high glufosinate or high oxalate levels we need to address them so the body can produce what we need to fight infection.

https://www.cell.com/immunity/fulltext/S1074-7613(17)30074-2?_returnURL=https%3A%2F%2Flinkinghub.elsevier.com%2Fretrieve%2Fpii%2FS1074761317300742%3Fshowall%3Dtrue

http://www.ravnskov.nu/2015/12/30/the-benefits-of-high-cholesterol/

We need fats to fight infection. Our cells are made up of a lipid layer. If we do not get enough fat our cells become easier targets for infection.

http://iai.asm.org/content/83/2/514.full

https://www.wjgnet.com/1007-9327/full/v18/i7/627.htm

The types of fats are important. For example Omega 9 and Omega 3 help fight infection. Omega 6 does unless levels get too high. Many diets are too high in Omega 6 causing it to have to opposite effect. Omega 9 is found in the milk and fat from grass fed animals. Grain fed animals have much lower levels of Omega 9 fatty acids. This is also why we should address metabolic issues like pyphoria and pyrrole disorders which effect our bodies proper use of fats. I have posted on those. We also need to address sulfation issues which can lead to problems with our bodies proper use of fats.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4831806/

Omega 3 is needed to fight infections.

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0923250817300621

Whether we take Omega 3 or not is determined by the type of infections. This does not mean we should avoid it but it means we should limit our intake with certain types of infections.

https://www.journalofinfection.com/article/S0163-4453(16)30252-3/fulltext

For example Omega 3s are very effective against viral infections.

https://www.cell.com/fulltext/S0092-8674(13)00216-X

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2090730313000455

Pretty good information on fatty acids.

Boneset helps fight the cold and flu. I found it to be extremely effective. I only had to take it for three days. It also helps fight malaria. There is an alkaloid in it and I have not had a chance to research the health effects of the alkaloid so I only use it for about three days. I will not use it any longer then that until I have a chance to research the safety of the alkaloid that is in it. I took it at night because it made me feel like I had a fever and it made me sweat. I decided I would rather sleep through that. Has been shown to be very effective against the flu. Has been shown to be very effective against RNA viruses which are usually the super viruses produced by vaccines. It also fight malaria.

I posted on things science has wrong. I had noticed most things they call pathogens have beneficial effects in the body. Some help get rid of toxins, while others help modulate and keep the immune system balanced. Some pathogens even fights cancer. So I kept researching and found when an illness exist then it can harm the pathogen so it has to go into survival mode. When it does that is when it can harm the body.

Colloidal silver is effective against many types of pathogens. You must make sure it is true or pure colloidal silver at least 98% colloidal silver. In some countries they are allowed to sell ionic silver as colloidal silver. As far as I know ionic silver is not toxic but it does cause what they call blue man syndrome. It takes very high does to occur but it is proof the body cannot remove ionic silver. It is very effective against MRSA.

Horsweed

 

Conyza Canadensis

Used to be known as Erigeron Canadensis. It has a somewhat hot taste like black pepper. I like the taste but I think it is better to use as a spice. Many use it in place of tarragon. I do not know what tarragon taste like so cannot comment on that. I used to grow it now I try and manage it. It does not take much for it to get away from you and overtake things. Some call it Horseweed, some call it mares tail. Is resistant to glyphosate so be careful where you forage it.

Plantain Herb

 

 

Plantago Major and Plantago Lanceolata

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

Curly Dock and Yellow Dock

 

Yellow dockRumex Crispus

This is not medical advice and should not be taken as such. I have posted this for informational and educational purposes. Know your plants if in doubt don’t . Some parts of plants are edible while other parts can be lethal.

There are many species of yellow dock but the one most are familiar with is R. Obtusifolius. It has many benefits from detoxing, providing much needed nutrients especially minerals. The young shouts and leaves can be eaten but become high oxalate when they get older especially when the stems start turning red. Oxalates can cause severe damage in the body and even death. It is why I mainly use the root and only eat the stems once in a while when they are very young. Young first years roots taste good cooked in butter they have kind of a nutty flavor. When they get older they get tough and bitter. I use second year roots to make tea. So separate the seeds from the husk and use them to make flour. I have not been successful with that. I did see a video on Youtube were a young man used a food processor with a dough mixing blade on it to separate them and then put them on a tray an place a fan by them to blow the husk away and it seemed to work pretty well. The health benefits of the root is pretty astounding to me. There are other types of dock with similar benefits but in my area Yellow Dock is the most common. Most Docks have cross bread and share the similar benefits. R. Obtusifolius or very common and have cross bread so much you can barely tell them apart.

The leaves are so high in oxalates eating them can be fatal.

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.
