Fatty Liver, Cirrohsis, thrombosis and other diseases caused by fibrosis.

Gray1086-liverThis is not medical advice. I am posting this for educational and informational purposes. It takes time, persistence and research to heal. One of the number one causes of thrombosis and fibrosis now days are the Covid vaccines.

Fibrosis can result in excess blood clotting, muscle damage, NAFLD, COPD and many other illness. I have posted on oxidative stress, inflammation and infection. I have also posted on toxins like glyphosate, glufosinate, mercury and detoxing them. All those things can cause fibrosis. Modern medicine looks at the symptoms and not the cause for example when the liver or lungs are failing they view those as the problem but most things like that are from a systemic failure throughout the body caused by many things. If you read my post it is your gut and not your genes you will see many things they blame on genetics can be corrected in the gut. Even thought this post is about NAFLD these things should help with just about any illness caused by fibrosis including thrombosis (blood clotting) because many of them have similar causes. The main causes of these disorders now days is vaccine injury, eating foods that contain glyphosate and drug injury especially fluoroquinolones.

Ways NAFLD developes


Genes and NAFLD, keep in mind things they thought were genetic and could not be changed they have found can be and people can heal.


Good list of supplements for NAFLD.



Foods that may help.


Krill Oil and other fats may help with fatty liver.





Pantethine has been shown to reverse fatty liver disease. but excessive use may cause fatty liver.



Ubiquinol helps reduce fatty liver.




Low P5P can cause fatty liver disease.



PPC may help with fatty liver.


SAM helps with fatty liver.



Carnitine helps with fatty liver.



Those with fatty liver have been found to be low in magnesium. This can be cause by oxidative stress, inflammation , toxins and metabolic disorders.



Fruit vinegars help with fatty liver.



Alpha R-lipoic Acid helps with fatty liver.



Treatment options for NAFLD.


Nattokinase also reduces fibrinogen which would help with COPD and NAFLD.


This is a site with a list of things that can cause NAFLD. Most of these issues I have posted on if you search my blog.


Renal function can improve at any stage of illness.


In some Tenascan-C becomes activated which can lead to fibrosis throughout the body including the liver and lungs.


Illnesses that cause damage to the body from increased inflammation and oxidative stress can cause raised Tenascan-C levels.


Tenascin-C is high in tissue injury which is why it is important to address the issues that are causing the injury. Whether it is metabolic issues, nutrient deficiencies, toxins , infection or oxidative stress.


Ace inhibitors may help with fatty liver. I have posted on natural ACE inhibitors in my hypertension post.



Vitamin E found in things like Olive Oil and Fish Oil helps with fatty liver.



Vitamin D deficiency or a number of metabolic disorders or toxins can prevent the body from converting vitamin D to D3. Low levels of D3 can increase Tenascan-C levels. Supplementing with D3 may reduce Tenascan-C levels.


Alcoholics get cirrhosis of the liver because it depletes the nutrients (cofactors) needed for sulfation and glucuronidation.


Cholesterol dysregulation and NAFLD.


Homocysteine NAFLD


Betaine, Homocysteine, NAFLD.


Those who have issues with thiols cannot take betaine. I have posted on thiols.


Estrogen PEMT


Estrogen,PEMT and choline deficiency.


Choline deficiency can lead to NAFLD, there also also metabolic issues that can interfere with the bodies use of choline.


A deficiency in PEMT enzymes leads to fatty liver.


The vagus nerve can effect PEMT levels.


Misaligned vertebrae and vagus nerve.


Dysregulation of PEMT will result in liver dysfunction from choline deficiency. It is not mentioned in this study but nutrient deficiencies and metabolic issues like inhibited sulfation and issues with thiols can cause this. I have posted on those. Carcinogenic estrogen can build up in the body effecting these receptors. This can be caused by vaccine injury, heavy metals and glyphosate. Under normal health estrogen induces PEMT. PEMT homeostasis is important for preventing fibrosis throughout the body.






A deficiency in PEMT leads to fatty liver disease.



This is a more in depth article on PEMT.


PEMT issues can result in lung dysfunction.


High levels of certain gut bacteria , and high endotoxin levels can cause PEMT issues. I have posted on gut bacteria and how to reduce the strains mentioned, I think it was in my gut bacteria post. Leaky gut and infection causes high endotoxin levels and I have posted on how to address those.



SNAIL1 inhibition can reverse fatty liver caused by PEMT dysfunction.



A natural pesticide form the melia toosendan tree inhibits SNAIL1. It is used to get rid of parasites in the body.



Eucalyptol is a SNAIL1 inhibitor.


Insulin resistance caused by inflammation and oxidative stress can lead to NAFLD.



Betaine (TMG) helps with fatty liver.


Antitrypsins defiency can lead to NAFLD. Raw egg whites and Lima beans inhibit trypsin but I do not know if it will help , I could not find research on humans. Though there are studies on mice that show beans that have trypsin inhibitors in them being effective. There are studies showing the trypsin inhibitors in beans fight cancer.




Ursodeoxycholic acid reduces liver fibrosis. Inhibited sulfation can cause a deficiency in ursodeoxycholic acid. It can also cause sulfated ursodeoxycholic acid to build up in the liver causing damage. This can also cause problems in the intestines, resulting in inflammation and even intestinal lesions. There are a number of things that cause liver fibrosis and many of them can be addressed by increasing the gut bacteria that produce ursodeoxycholic acid.





I gut bacteria help keep our liver healthy.



Our gut bacteria also protect our livers from infection.


Parental nutrition effects the health of an infants liver.


Enterococcus Lactis protects the liver from oxidative stress.


Oligosaccharrides increase the beneficial bacteria that produce ursodeoxycholic acid, this helps with liver fibrosis which has been found to be common in those with SIBO.


Obeticholic acid reduces liver fibrosis.


Bile acid dysfunction has been connected to many chronic illnesses.




Metabolic issues effect bile acid production which can lead to illness.




Our gut bacteria regulate our bile acids, bile acid dysfunction can lead to kidney and liver disease.








Lithium in low doses heals the kidneys in high doses it can damage them.



Dybiosis can cause poor liver health regardless of our body fat levels.


Fasting increases HSP70 which helps with NAFLD. I have posted on HSP70


Ginseng may help with liver fibrosis.



Oligosacharride helps normalize our gut bacteria.






This study shows the importance of bile acid homeostasis in the prevention of NAFLD.


Nrf2 regulates bile acid homeostasis. I covered Nrf2 in my antioxidant post.




Trehalose reduces oxidative stress by regulating Nrf2/keap1 pathway and induces autophagy.



Choline metabolism and our gut bacteria are connected to liver disease. A sign of metabolic issues that need addressed is gall bladder trouble and indigestion when eating foods high in choline.


We need to get the correct fats an adequate amounts of cholesterol for bile production. We also must address issues that may cause a loss of cholesterol and fats by oxidation . I have posted on oxidative stress and inflammation.


I have posted on thiols. Cholesterol dysregulation can cause NAFLD.


Hemochromatosis can cause liver fibrosis. They claim it is genetic but I have seen studies showing toxins, infection and excess oxidative stress can cause it. Curcumine also reduces iron overload but taking it for too long can cause anemia. Lactoferrin reduces symptoms of iron overload by normalizing levels of iron in the blood though I have not research the safety of it’s use in liver disease.


This is a list of herbs that helps with hemochromatosis.


Liver fibrosis is caused by increased collagen production.


Porphyria can lead to fatty liver. I have posted on it.



Stringy Stonecrop help with liver fibrosis.


NAD+ may help with fatty liver.


Eleuthero reduces fatty liver.


Diosmetin found in citrus fruit reduces liver fibrosis.


Inhibiting USAG1 may help with Alport Syndrome. Proteinuria is part of the problem with Alport Syndrome. If I get a chance I will research the effects of protease on Alport Syndrome.


Biochanin A which is found in red clover and in the red papery covering of peanuts prevents liver fibrosis.


Relaxin helps reduce lung fibrosis which would help with COPD.


Bacteriodes Fragilis reduces liver injury.


I found this interesting IDO deficiency causes liver fibrosis. IDO deficiency can be caused by metabolic issues, toxins like mercury, glyphosate and glufosinate. Infection cause high quinolinic acid levels which can cause IDO deficiency. Also toxins from mold can cause IDO deficiency. High IDO levels can cause cancer so this is not something you would want to increase but something you would want to restore homeostasis to.





High MMP levels causes fatty liver.



This is a list of MMP inhibitors. I find it strange that many of these also fight viruses.



Fraxinux Excelsior seed helps reverse fatty liver.




Theraputic targets to help with fibrosis.


Those with liver fibrosis have been found to be deficient in Vitamin A.


Other vitamin deficiencies connected to liver fibrosis.


Zinc deficiency is common in cirrhosis of the liver.


Berberine helps with NAFLD.


Metabolic issues, oxidative stress, toxins especially mecury and glyphosate can cause the loss of retinoic acid receptor. I have posted on how to address those things.


Rumex Visicarius can help prevent liver disease.


Burdock root is hepaprtoective.


Kudzu has many healing properties. It is hepaprotective.


Though this is the kidneys I am sure this could happen in the liver also. Infection especially tick born illness can cause antiphospholipid syndrome. Vaccine injury can also cause this. Antiphospholipid syndrome can cause fibrosis in the kidneys.


Paeony helps reduce symptoms of kidney disease.


Low carbohydrate diet reduces kidney disease in diabetes. I have posted on diabetes. This would be a temporary fix. It is better to address the issues causing it.


List of herbs that help cleanse the kidneys.


Many medications can cause liver fibrosis especially fluoroquinolones.




Murcormycosis is a lung infection and if not addressed it can lead to liver disease and COPD.



Cristifolin found in Joe Pye helps with liver fibrosis but it contains an alkaloid that can build up in the body so I would not recommend over use.


How isoflavones protect the liver.

yarrow protects the renal system.


reduces oxidative stress.




Ginger is hepaprotective and reduces oxidative stress.



Hibiscus is in the mallow family. Most plants in the mallow family are hepaprotective.

Hibiscus is hepaprotective.


Rose hip is hepaprotective.




White malberry helps with NAFLD





Sages have many healing abilities. Red Sage helps with liver fibrosis.

Red Sage helps reverse liver fibrosis.


Sirt activators help with NAFLD. Resveratrol found in grape seed extract is a sirtian activator.


Beta Glucan found in mushrooms, whey protein and whole grains help with liver fibrosis.

Beta glucan protects from fibrosis which is found in COPD and NAFLD.


Rooibos protects the renal system by reducing oxidative stress.

It also protects the renal system the same way.


Causes of lipid storage disease.


Oxidative stress causes renal damage, this is how Tylenol causes liver damage. Corn Silk helps protect the liver from oxidative stress, it is yummy to.


miR22 promotes liver fibrosis.


miR22 is modulated by our gut bacteria, our mRNA communicate with our gut microbiome. So if we have undressed health issues then this could be disrupted.



Plants that should be avoided because they have alkaloids that can destroy the liver or kidneys.

Plants with poison alkaloids.


Lipoxin reduces inflammation which should help with NAFLD. I have not had a chance to research how to increase lipoxin.


I do not like metformin because of the effects of long term use on the body. I am posting this to show that folic acid is toxic to the body and is used to damage the liver of animals in test. It is man made and our bodies make very little of the enzyme needed to break it down. This causes the excess that cannot be broken down to enter the blood stream causing damage throughout the body. Folate which is natrual does not have this effect on the body. They fortify our food with folic acid making it toxic, so those with NAFLD should try to avoid foods containing folic acid.



Glycogen storage disease.


Beta Glucuronidase is bad for NAFLD but helps with lysosomal storage disease.


Those with NAFLD can be deficient in B12


Mitochondrial disfunction is common in NAFLD, PQQ improves mitochondrial function.


Hibiscus is hepaprotective.


Red Sage helps reverse liver fibrosis.


Beta glucan protects from fibrosis which is found in COPD and NAFLD.


Reduces blood pressure.



Rooibos protects the heart by reducing oxidative stress and by reducing inflammation. Rooibos is also an ACE inhibitor.



Tenascan-C is needed for heart repair.



Tenascan-C is high in COPD


Tenascin-C is high in tissue injury which is why it is important to address the issues that are causing the injury. Whether it is metabolic issues, nutrient deficiencies, toxins , infection or oxidative stress. This also causes high oxLDL levels.


Fructose and NAFLD, fruit fructose is different it is processed fructose that causes the problem. Just as processed honey loses it’s health benefits so does processed fructose.


Insulin/Snail1 issues are involve in macrophagy which shows that NAFLD is a macrophagy issues.


Macrophagy issue also cause lipogenesis issues.



Those with NAFLD have glycolysis issues. This indicates macrophagy issues.


macrophagy issues have been linked to NAFLD.


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.



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


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.


Vitamin A deficiency makes us more susceptible to measles.


Thiamine may help with HIV infection.


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



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


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



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.


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


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



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


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.


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.




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.



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.


Omega 3 is needed to fight infections.


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.


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



Pretty good information on fatty acids.


One of the most potent was oregano. It really helped get my candida bact to commensal form. Not sure why but it gave me indigestion the first couple days. After that I was fine. It fights just about every type of pathogen even fungal.


Wild oregano works the best.


Self Heal helps fight the herpes virus. It also is a helicase inhibitor so would probably help with other viruses also.



Black Sativa is an amazing herb. It fights some bacteria and fungus, it also kill worms.



List of plants that have antiviral and antibacterial properties.


Plants that help with MRSA infection.


Stinging nettles helps fight MRSA


Stinging nettles also helps fight the dengue virus, mcyoplasm and many other infectious angents.






Stinging nettles also fights HIV and the HIV like simian virus found in vaccinations.


Dandelion also helps fight dengue virus.


Biacalein which is found in sculletaria, plantain herb, and fleabane also helps fight dengue virus.


Querciten also helps fight the dengue virus and the flu.



Evening Primrose helped heal my gut. It has antibacterial and antifungal properties.





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.






Apple leaf has been shown to heal the gut. It kill most pathogens that can harm the gut. It also has many healing properties.


Hawthorne kills many pathogens that cause gut issues and also is high in mucilage so helps heal the gut.


Wild Basil has antibacterial properties.


Lemon Balm surprised me. It is known for reducing pain but has very good antimicrobial properties even against viruses including herpes.





White malberry helps with peridontal diseases. It also helps fight other infections by activating TH1 cytokines. So those who are TH1 dominant would want to avoid this.




Cleavers also known as bedstraw is very effective against MRSA


Black mustard helps fight malaria.


Galinsoga help fight gut infections. Many bacteria produce urease which raises ammonia levels in the body. Galinsoga inhibits urease which would reduce ammonia levels.


Virginia Pepperweed is effective against malaria.


Vitamin D is very effective at fighting infection. Some who have metabolic issues may have to take D3 if they aren’t converting vitamin D. Excess amounts of vitamin D can cause high oxalate levels. Most do not recommend over 4000 IU of vitamin D a day.


Kudzu has amazing healing properties and also helps fight viruses.


Fetid Goosefoot is also good at fighting protozoa infection.


Paeonia root helps fight viruses.


Wormwood helps with many types of infections including malaria.


Baking soda helps with murcormycosis infection.


Coconut Oil helps fight infections including candida and Lyme. It contains monolauren.



Uva Ursi contain berberine which has been shown to very effective against many types of pathogens.


Lyme hides in the lymph nodes. Cleavers is good for getting rid of pathogens in the lymphs. Lyme has so many ways to evade the immune system that I will have to do a separate post on it.


Lyme and other infections can cause alkaline brain.


Some things that help fight Lyme.


Lyme can cause mold illness. This is a good article on how to deal with it.


Golden Rod helps fight gut infections.


Most species of violet are chemically similar. They have some antimicrobial properties and are very tasty.


Japanese Honeysuckle has antibacterial and antiviral properties.





Cat’s Claw has been found to be effective against many types of pathogens.



Moringa helps with urinary tract infection it also has potent antiviral properties.



Our commensal bacteria protect us from urinary infection.


When things are out of balance some bacteria that protect us will become pathogenic. Science mistakenly list them as pathogens but when our bodies microbiome is balanced they are part of our immune system.


This was a pleasant surprise. One of my favorite foods purslane fights infections.


Plantain herb helps with streptococcus and other infections.



Mugwort fights many types of pathogens including mycoplasma.


Lactosucrose suppresses H1N1


NAC inhibits the flu virus but I would take this in moderations. I have noticed when taken daily it seems to lose it’s benefits.


Red Seaweed helps fight infection.


Do it yourself elderberry cough syrupt.


Red Gensing is a helicase inhibitor which prevents viruses from attaching to cells.



Pau D’Arco helped me a lot. It fights everything from parasites to mycospasma.





Vitamin C kills tuberculosis through the fenton reactions. Bad part about that the aluminum and mercury can shut down the fenton reaction and they are found in vaccinations. Glyphosate and glufosinate can also shut down the fenton reaction and they are found in most of our food suppley.



Our gut bacteria protect us from infection. The worst part of this glyphosate and glufosinate found in our food supply kill many of our beneficial gut bacteria. Antibiotics and heavy metals can also kill our gut bacteria.









Our microbiome even protect us from venereal disease and infection.



Our gut bacteria protect our liver.


Our gut bacteria protect us from food poisoning, unfortunately the BT Toxin in GMOs disable our gut bacterias ability to do this.


Our commensal bacteria protect our lungs from infection.


We have to remember our gut bacteria train our immune system.




We have to feed our gut bacteria.


For each pathogen there is it’s commensal counter part which protects us from the pathogenic relative.


Commensal H Pylori.


We also have phages that protect us from illness but heavy metals, antibiotics, glyphosate and glufosinate destroy them. You can have them replaced but it is very expensive.


Brewers yeast helps protect the good gut microbiota and kills many types of pathogens.


There are many things that help restore autophagy like nobilene and fulvic acid. Autophagy is a very important part of the immune system.



I rarely don’t like drugs but Ebselem reduces oxidative stress and kills many types of pathogens including Lyme and mycoplasma.


Some things that help with biofilms. Many pathogens form biofilms especially those transmitted by ticks. This makes them drug resistant.



When sick we have a storm of cytokines that cause inflammation which can lead to sepsis so it is very important to reduce imflammation.


It is very important to get the inflammation caused by infection and toxins under control because it effects iron homeostasis.





Coppers involvement in infecton.


Inflammation can lead to autoimmunity.



positive emotions helps fight infection.


Pathogens use our fat to thrive. Inhibiting phospholipase can help.


Vitamin A inhibits the enzyme used by pathogens which should prevent them from being so pathogenic.


Some other Phospholipase inhibitors.




Chinese holly protects the lungs from injury from infection.


we have to address oxidative stress when fighting and infection I have posted on nitrosative and oxidative stress.


If the infection and inflammation are not addressed it can lead to gall bladder problems and gall stones.


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. So we much correct the problem to get the said pathogen back to commensal form.


Endothelins can be high during chronic illness. If they are high we should try reducing them.


Horsetail helped me a lot with my battle against Lyme but it doesn’t seem effective against many types of bacteria. I notice a lot of improvement in my health when I started using it. It helps fight viral and fungal infection. It is also effective against candida.





Plantain Herb fights gangrene and viral infection.




Many plants used by native american has antimicrobial properties.


Antimicrobial plants used in India.


Antimicrobials used in Pakistan.


Golden Rod helps with colds and flu. It is high in betaine also known as tmg so can cause indigestion if taken in excess. It is not mentioned in this link but it stimulates bile production and reduces urinary tract infection. It can aid in digestion if you get that feeling like there is a brick in your gut after eating. It reduces inflammation and symptoms of allergies.



Joe Pye is good for renal infections, kidney stones and gall stones. I know many who used it with good results. There are many who claim it has akaloids that can be toxic but I have not seen the research so I would use it in moderation if you choose to use it.




Herbs that help with Lyme.



Blue Berries help fight food born viruses.


Wild cherry and chokecherry bark fight infection, cancer and heal the gut but can be toxic if over consumed.


Opium lettuce is effective against gram positive bacteria and some gram negative.



Wild Sarsparilla fights mycoplasma.



I could list hundreds of studies showing curcumine fights a variety of infections from mycoplasma to viruses. I believe the fact it chelates iron might contribute to it’s effectiveness. If taken for too long it can cause a person to develop anemia.



Many spices are very good at fighting infection.





Apple Cider vinegar is very good at killing a variety of pathogens including candida. It also has been shown to be as effective as aspirin against pain. Drinking it straight can damage the digestive system because it is very caustic. I mixed mine with water and a little honey.


This is a pretty good list of herbs that fight Candida. But they mention tea tree oil which I would not consume. It can be toxic if consumed too much.


Yarrow along with it’s pain killing and ability to make a person feel more positive has many antimicrobial and antiparasitic properties.




Those whith high acetylcholine levels should avoid calendula. It is a cholesterase inhibitor.


Calendula and thyme protect from afloxin toxins from mold.


Calendula also helps fight the common cold.


Ginger has been shown to have a broad range of antimicrobial and antiparacitic properties it is even effective against respiratory infection.





Hibiscus has strong antiviral properties.


Most plants in the sage family have antimicrobial and antiparasitic properties. Red Sage seems to be the best.


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.





Beta glucans modulate the immune system helping to normalize it. Many pathogens will cause an over active immune response which helps to stealth them from the immune system. This helps to enhance the immune response to a pathogen. I have posted on beta glucan if you want to learn more.




Whey protein increases glutathione in those with HIV.




Lactoferrin protects from viral, fungal and bacteria infections. It is even effective against the Vibrio species.




Lactoferrin combined with the right probiotics helps restore normal bladder bacteria.


Egg whites help fight infections in the same way lactoferrin does.



The body will hide iron from some pathogens because it feeds them. Many pathogens have overcome this ability. Lactoferrin has been shown to inhibit those pathogens ability to use iron.


Rooibos has antibacterial qualities. It really helps me if I get a cold or flu transmitted to me from someone who got vaccinated. Yeah I know they are supposed to be dead pathogens. Why does everyone around someone who has been vaccinated get ill including the vaccinated person? Rooibos also is a strong HIV inhibitor.



Rooibos is effective against the flu.


Some herbs that help with liver flukes.


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

Written by Lee Stevenson, sorry I am a lousy editor. This is not medical advice. I am posting this for educational and informational purposes. These are the notes I compiled together from my friend in our group on Facebook , Synergistic Health. They are an amazing group of people with amazing thinking abilities in my opinion. After ready my friends post and their notes I came to realize that just like diabetes, autoimmunity is not caused by one thing but is a result of a number of things working synergistically to effect the body cancer is also an illness caused by a synergistic effect of a number of things. It also lead me to believe that restoring homeostasis to the things in the body that can contribute to cancer is the best way to recover. An imbalance either direction can contribute to cancer. Most of the things in this article I have posted information on them. I wrote this before they introduced the Covid vaccine. Cancer is now going to be rampant because the vaccines cause cancer in a variety of ways. Why the vaccinated are more prone to infection and are developing cancer. https://arkmedic.substack.com/p/philadelphia-2023?utm_source=direct&utm_campaign=post&utm_medium=web&fbclid=IwAR1NtHQ9zcTqoIp8ejy6ElLQWBo90tZSlxaD5iu3t24mWK3RA_JblmDqspo Acidosis and alkalosis are signs of health problems that need addressed. If the health problems causing them aren’t addressed then trying to fight any illness is futile and is like running on a hamster wheel. I have posted on those. This man tells his story about beating cancer. I have met many who have beat it in a similar way. https://www.theherbprof.com/Index.htm Oxidative stress contributes to chronic illness and cancer. You will hear it mentioned often. There is a test for oxidative stress. It is the Urinary 8-OHdG test. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0009898103004534?via%3Dihub The saddest part of all about cancer is that it is the most profitable of all medical treatments so many doctors have deliberately misdiagnosed people with cancer out of greed. https://www.healthnutnews.com/more-doctors-confessing-to-intentionally-diagnosing-healthy-people-with-cancer-to-make-money/ Mitochondria regulate our immune response and oxidative stress. Many things can cause mitochondria dysfunction. This can lead to metabolic issues, excess oxidative stress and autoimmunity which can lead to cancer and other chronic illness. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6052888/ There are many problems in cancer research and it leads to many mistakes in their attempts to cure it. The part that frustrates me is the main causes of cancer are things like inflammation, metabolic disorders and autoimmune issues. Instead of trying to correct those and restoring homeostasis they keep looking at the cancer and cannot see the whole picture most of the time.

If they focused on getting the body at homeostasis they would have more success in fighting any chronic illness including cancer. Cancer is a symptom not necessarily the cause of the illness. Science now focuses on the symptoms instead of the cause. I guess this may be because the pharmaceutical industry is the cause of many types of chronic illness and if they looked at the cause they may lose funding from the pharmaceutical industry. Also the biotech industry is owned by the pharmaceutical industry and it is a cause of much of the chronic illness now days. So many researchers are stuck in a hard place, if they looked at the cause they risk losing funding and most likely would lose their jobs. http://www.detoxifynow.com/real_cause_of_cancer.html https://vaccineresistancemovement.org/?p=3729 Cancer is usually metabolic illness or autoimmunity and sometimes both. One thing common in most cancers is that it uses glycolysis instead of phosphorylation. Not all cancer uses the Warburg effect some do use oxygen and glucose. What I found common in most cancer is they require and acidic environment to thrive. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2tTg_TeV6Hg&app=desktop https://medium.com/@drjasonfung/the-paradox-of-cancers-warburg-effect-7fb572364b81 https://highintensityhealth.com/174-angela-poff-phd-cancer-a-metabolic-disease-the-ketogenic-diet-warburg-effect/ https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1044579X15000991?via%3Dihub https://www.nature.com/articles/srep04927 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24079832 Lactate and the Warburg effect. https://escholarship.org/uc/item/0m5608vq Fructose feeds cancer in a different way then glucose does.

The problem with that is there are man metabolic issues that if not corrected will cause antioxidants to cause or increase cancer. Those metabolic issues must be dealt with before antioxidants can be used. For example if the Nrf2 pathway is blocked antioxdiants will increase oxidative stress instead of reducing it. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2213231712000110 http://stopcancerfund.org/pz-diet-habits-behaviors/antioxidants-and-cancer-risk-the-good-the-bad-and-the-unknown/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3694988/ This study shows the importance of homeostasis. Inhibited Nrf2 pathways can lead to cancer but on the other side of the coin Nrf2 activation can protect cancer. It shows that extremes contribute to cancer we need to try our best to balance things. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4684645/ https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1002/path.4665 In this study they claimed bile acid caused cancer. When I looked deeper into it I found it was a lack of certain gut bacteria that break down the more toxic forms of bile. Not consuming enough fiber which absorbs some of the excess bile and metabolic issues that prevent the body from properly recycling the bile. https://www.omicsonline.org/bile-acids-promoters-or-carcinogens-in-colon-cancer-2157-2518.1000101e.php?aid=1491 https://academic.oup.com/ajcn/article/102/4/881/4564676 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5316202/ Bile acids are also involved in inhibiting cancer. This is why it is important to try and achieve homeostasis. We have to get the idea of killing things out of our heads and learn to support the body so it can do what it was designed to do. There are bile acids that are carcinogenic, our gut bacteria and fiber help reduce those. Also our bodies when functioning properly will recycle bile and reduce the carcinogenic effects. This is why if we have an over production or under production of bile we need to address what is causing it, whether it be from toxins, inflammation, a gut microbiome imbalance or any of the other number of things that can disrupt bile homeostasis. http://www.jlr.org/content/49/4/763.long http://www.jimmunol.org/content/198/2/572 This study is pretty much the same they see the symptom instead of the cause they blame the bile acid and not what is causing the bile acid to do what it is. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2656903/ https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1046/j.0014-2972.2001.00938.x Issues with bile and cholesterol can be caused by inflammaton, infection, or high oxalates among other things. If not addressed it can cause gall bladder disease. This can lead to cancer. http://journal.waocp.org/?sid=Entrez:PubMed&id=pmid:24377514&key=2013.14.11.6257 Cancer as an infection. I have suspected this as a child. I would see people who got diagnosed with cancer take antibiotics and shortly after their cancer would be gone. This stands to reason because some infections cause inflammation and metabolic issues which lead to cancer. We get infections when toxins, vaccine injury or any number of things that effect the immune system occur. https://jeffreydachmd.com/2016/05/cancer-as-a-parasitic-disease/ https://www.nature.com/articles/bjc2016213 http://jvi.asm.org/content/75/9/4420.long https://rense.com//general95/lymph.html http://www.bloodjournal.org/content/107/8/3034.long?sso-checked=true https://www.karger.com/Article/Abstract/108920 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3248167/ https://www.nih.gov/news-events/news-releases/seven-substances-added-14th-report-carcinogens?fref=gc https://thetruthaboutcancer.com/polio-vaccine-cancer/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5207746/ Even now you see studies showing an antibiotic reduces cancer. Problem with that is it disrupts our gut bacteria which is known to cause cancer. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6045618/ This study shows that folic acid and B12 can increaste the risk of cancer. This leads me to believe that the person may have problems converting B12. It would build up in the body and studies have shown this increases risk of cancer. This can be corrected with proper nutrients. Also folic acid is different then folate and has been known to cause cancer because the body makes very little of the enzyme needed to break down folic acid. Many have high levels in their bodies because they fortify food with it. It has been shown to increase cancer risk. https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/fullarticle/184898 Substanc P can promote the growth of cancer. http://www.hh.um.es/Abstracts/Vol_29/29_7/29_7_881.htm High estrogen levels can promote breast cancer. Phytoestrogens have been shown to inhibit these effects at very high doses but may promote cancer growth at low doses. This is why natural aromatase inhibitors may help. https://www.betterhealth.vic.gov.au/health/conditionsandtreatments/breast-cancer-and-oestrogen https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4129534/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3074486/ When I was younger I remember reading many science articles showing when a person got a fever their cancer would shrink. Studies have since shown that a fever reduces cancer. There are natural products that will induce a mild fever. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5704862/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3312698/ This study shows the importance of homeostasis because in many studies I have read over stimulation of something can cause another form of cancer to develop and completely inhibiting something can cause other forms of cancer to develop. Homeostasis should be the goal because once the body is at homeostasis it will do what it was designed to do and that is to keep us healthy. We achieve homeostasis with proper nutritional support, addressing any metabolic issues, addressing health issues like a deficiency in certain gut bacteria. We should also help support our antioxidant system so that antixodants can do their job. If our antioxidant system is not working then antioxidants will actually increase our oxidative stress. It is very important to reduce inflammation but the body also uses inflammation to tell the body something is wrong and it will stimulate healing. So we do not want to completely block inflammation but reduce excess inflammation. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5793177/ http://www.budwigcenter.com/full-body-hyperthermia-natural-treatment/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4300235/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5096652/ Inhibiting deacetylase can restore the bodies ability to fight cancer.

It is why pharmaceuticals make people sicker while hiding the symptoms. They look at the symptoms as the cause and cannot distinguish between a symptoms and the illness. They view symptoms as illness. G6PD deficiency can also cause cancer because mTOR is upregulated when there is a G6PD deficiency which demonstrates the importance of achieving homeostasis. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4112277/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5797786/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5591135/ https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0925443911001608 Lactate can fuel cancer. https://www.hindawi.com/journals/mi/2016/6456018/ Lipocalin II inhibits the growth of some cancers but can stimulate the growth of others. Since lipcalin is involved in fighting infection I believe the cancer that is inhibited by lipcalin is most likely an infection. This shows the importance of immune homeostasis. http://mcr.aacrjournals.org/content/4/11/821 https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1002/pros.22978 Those with HIV are prone to getting cancer and have low lipocalin levels.

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

Things that may help.

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


Information on spontaneous remission of cancer.


Another website with information about cancer.


Functional foods and their role in cancer.










Vitamins and cancer.


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


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



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




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


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

Ginger has been shown to reduce Cancer.



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


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


Self Heal helps reduce cancer.




Monkey head mushroom helps with cancer.


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



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




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




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







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


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


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


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




Incereasing endogenous cannabinoids.




This is a good article on the cannabinoid system.


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


Cannibis can have many side effects.


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














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




Bedstraw also known as cleavers.


Medium chain fatty acids help fight cancer.



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



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


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


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


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



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



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



Astaxanthin really helps naked mice….lol


Noon seems to be the best time to get sunlight.


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

A berry from a type of honey suckle is high in phytochemicals. It is good for many types of chronic illness.



Black Sativa helps with cancer and many other health issues.





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



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


Self Heal helps with cancers caused by high estrogen levels.


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


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



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



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


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



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


Aceroside found in maple syrupt inhibits deacetylase.


HDAC inhitors effects on health.


Diet and phytochemicals effects on DNA.


Globe Artichoke inhibits cancers.


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



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




Ellagic Acid , helps reduce cancer.



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



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


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






Pomegranate has been shown to reduce cancer.


Oyster mushroom can help fight cancer.


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


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




Fasting inhibits cancer growth.



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


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


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


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


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



Houttuynia helps with cancer.


Paw Paw helps fight cancer.


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




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


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



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


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


Sweetsop helps fight cancer.


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


Phytate help fight cancer.


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


Gymena has many health benefits including inhibiting cancer growth.


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




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


Cat’s Claw helps fight cancer.


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


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


Elder Berry helps fight cancer.


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


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



Paeony root helps with cancer.


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



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


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


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


Epimedium contains icariside 2 which inhibits mTOR.


Milk thistle inhibits mTOR.


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

Oligosaccharrides help our gut bacteria produce butyrate.


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

IMG_20180622_135147Galinsoga Parviflora

Galinsoga Parviflora is the one I am familiar with and the one I grow. There are many varieties and they have similar health effects. Galinsoga is one of my favorites when it comes to taste. It has a mild taste. It also has many benefits and is a natural ACE inhibitor. Has antioxidant abilities comparable to silymarin. Has antimicrobial abilities.







Galinsoga I also and Alpha glucosidase inhibitor which would help with diabetes. It would also inhibit viruses like HIV and Hepatitis. Those with glycogen storage disorders would want to avoid eating Galinsoga.

Galinsoga is also a urease inhibitor which would prevent many types of infection and reduces urinary stone formation.


It would also help with high blood pressure because it is an ace inhibitor.


All those benefits and it is tasty to.

Supplement and Nutrient Information I have accumulated part 2.


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

Calcium Glycerophosphate – helps with the ph of urine. Helps fight pathogens also helps with bone healing. You do not want to over alkalize the bladder. Most pathogens especially Candida when it is in it’s pathogenic form prefers and flourishes in an alkaline environment but the good bacteria cannot tolerate it. This helps if you have acidosis and would probably be about the only reason I would take it. It has been shown to strengthen bones and teeth. Do not take too often or for too long because it can inhibit absorption of other nutrients. It has been shown to reduce the symptoms of mental illness, improve memory and cognitive function. It helps heal leaky gut. It inhibits absorption of lead and alunimun into the body. It also helps ease bladder pain. It reduces inflammation and fights cancer. It increases IL 10 which can be inhibited by many pathogens to stealth themselves from the immune system.






Calcium-D-Glucarate this reduces ammonia levels in the body. It helps remove toxins from the body. It can help remove carcinogenic estrogen from the body. It reduces stress on the liver which causes a reduced need for cholesterol which will reduce cholesterol levels. It also reduces the risk of cancer. It also prevents toxins from being absorbed in the digestive system. It improves glucuronidation.





Phospholipids – needed for healing and protecting the cells in the body. Also helps transport nutrients through the body. Breaks up biofilms. It is good to alternate sources because each has their benefits. Some good sources of phospholipids are olive oil, ghee, evening primrose oil etc. Try to reduce sources of Omega 6 if it gets too high in the body it will cause inflammation instead of reducing it. Omega 3 needs to be higher. If you get ill, have bladder pain or get indigestion when you consume fats then you may have a blocked Pentose Phosphate Pathway or you have Pyrole issues that need addressed. There are many types of fats. I will do a seperate article on that.

Cholesterol – needed to heal in all parts of the body. The heart and brain cannot function without it. If your oxLDL is high it indicates you have inflammation or high oxidative stress levels. Cholesterol is an antioxidant and high LDL is a sign your antioxidant systems is working but something is causing inflammation or oxidative stress. Lowering chlolesterol prevents the body from healing. Address what is causing it, also not drinking enough water can also cause high LDL levels. Reducing cholesterol is not a good idea. Studies have shown memory and cognitive function decline as cholesterol levels decline. Muscles start to deteriorate if they do not get enough cholesterol. I did a post on cholesterol that gets into more detail.

Arrowroot – helps the cells use cholesterol more affectively especially in the bladder. It reduces oxLDL levels. It has many of the nutrients to support our metabolic pathways. Cholesterol is needed for our bodies to heal. Oxidative stress prevents our cells from being able to use cholesterol properly. Arrow root helps improve the absorption and use of cholesterol in the body. This reduces the bad cholesterol like oxLDL. There are many types of roots used from a variety of plants but most have the same benefits. Helps heal the gut and bladder because it has nutrients to support the health of mucous membranes. When processed into flour it losses many of it’s vitamins but retains minerals. Many of the benefits from arrowroot are from drinking teas made from arrowroot. Most of these because of the type of starch found in roots would help heal the gut. Seems those in the Canna family, Maranta Arundinacea are the best ones to use.



This is the Canna family mostly Canna Indica which is also referred to as Canna Coccinea. Reduces oxidative stress and reduces the risk of cancer.



Inhibits HIV


Curcuma Angustifolia and Maranta Arundinacea have similar properties.

Heals the Gut



Amlapitta is leaky gut, had to look it up.


Cassava (Manihot Esculenta) if not processed right it can have neurotoxic effects. This is one I would avoid because I have seen many studies showing people can also have allergic reactions to it.


Tacca Pinnafida

Reduces inflammation


Helps fight chlamydia


Arum Maculatum not sure I would use this one. Seems if not processed right it can be toxic.



Larazotide Acetate – reduces symptoms of celiac disease has been shown to reduce bladder pain. Though I do not like pharmaceuticals because the pharmaceutical companies have a history of covering up the ill effects of their drugs and often times it turns out the side effects are worse then their illness. This one seems to show promise.



Ashwagandha (Withania Somnifera)– improves thyroid and adrenal health. Reduces brain cell degeneration. Improves endurance and stamina. This is an herb you want to back off using and only take maintenance doses once you start healing. Ashwagandha reduces stress hormones. Ashwagandha also balances sugar levels in the body. Improves memory and heals the brain. It contains withanolides which are also found in plants in the same family like Tomatilla and ground cherries. Has many antioxidants which help reduce inflammation and histamines that results in lower oxidative stress, lower oxLDL and better immune function. It increases male fertility and fights cancer. It simulates thyroid hormones. It increases red and white blood cell counts. It also kills pathogens so you could herx when you first take it. Though there are no apparent side effects homeostasis should always be the goal. When you feel better a rule that has helped me is to stop taking something and start taking maintenance doses once in a while to keep things working.







Mushrooms like cordyceps, reishe and many others contain anti pathogen properties and have glycoprotein which is more easily used by the body for energy. Glycoproteins also promote better cell to cell communication. They also contain beta glucan which can stimulate the immune system to help fight pathogens. If you have a T cell imbalance they restore T cell balance in the body. Exposing mushrooms to sunlight before you eat them causes them to produce vitamin D. They kill cancer because the glycoproteins improve our bodies cell to cell communication. Mushrooms are also hepatoprotective.

Health benefits of various mushrooms.




Glyoproteins in mushrooms.





Beta Glucon in mushrooms.



Beta Glucans help correct fugal gut dysbiosis.


Balances T cells.


Fulvic Acid – helps repair chromosome damage. Can increase ammonia and hydrogen peroxide levels so make sure your oxidative stress levels are down. Make sure you detox before using it, it can cause the release of toxins from the cells to be excreted. It restores autophagy. Because it restores autophagy it benefits the whole body. It helps balance our gut bacteria and is good for those who have SIBO. Fulvic Acid also improves nutrient absorption. In inhibits COX and reduces homocystein which would reduce inflammation and help with MCAS. I get mine from organic blackstrap molasses. It has a high fulvic acid content. It also helps fight cancer. There is a draw back to fulvic acid. If you take too much it can actually increase oxidative stress instead of decreasing it. Use in moderation. Also if you are deficient in Selenium it will increase oxidative stress so make sure you get enough selenium.





Helps balance but bacteria.



Restores the health of our compliment system.


Improves nutrient uptake.


Helps the skeletal system repair.


Helps with allergies especially food allergies.


It improves cognitive function.


It breaks up Tau Fibrils in the brain so would probably break up other illnesses cause by misfolded proteins which causes Alzheimer’s. This is one of the most common problems in those who suffer from interstitial cystitis.


Taurine – usually low in vegetarians, has a sedative affect. Helps adrenals by reducing stress hormones. Has sedative affects. Needed for cardiovascular function, cellular function, eyes, skeletal muscle and central nervous system. Protect the bladder from stress induced injury. It is also an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. It reduces oxidative stress so would help with the many chronic illnesses that come with it. Helps regualte the amount of water in our cells and is part of the bile system. If you are deficient in taurine it could effect your gall bladder which in turn could cause gall stones and high oxLDL. There is so many benefits to taurine I am not going to list them. I have found no studies on negative effects caused by it.




Ginkgo Biloba – before I mention the benefits I need to give a warning. Taking it for too long or in high doses may damage the liver. I say may because the studies showing it harms the liver where poorly designed so I could not draw a conclusion. Their are studies showing it’s safety but they did not test on liver enzymes and function so I cannot draw a conclusion from those either. helps adrenals by lowering stress hormones. Improves memory and blood circulation. I got a headache the first few times I took this then I could think much clearer. The is one that you are not supposed to take often or for extended periods of time. If taken for too long or to high a dose it can damage the kidney and liver. It helps with interstitial cystitis and reduces inflammation. It also fights infection. It enhances memory and cognitive function. Helps with Raynauds disease which is cause by damage or inflammation in the blood vessels which causes restricted blood flow. It can also be caused by carditits from sepsis or infection. Some drugs can cause it like fluoroquinolones one of the most harmful drugs on the market. If you have epilepsy most recommend you do not take it. The first couple of times I took it I got a really bad headache. It improves mood and energy levels. Heals, hemorrhoids, fights fibromyalgia and reduces symptoms of asthma. Then about the third day my brain fog from the Lyme started lifting and I could think more clearly and concentrate better. If you are allergic to poison ivy you may be allergic to this. I am allergic to poison ivy but did not react but they say some do.




Heals the brain.


Gingko is cardioprotective.



Azo (Phenazopyridine) – I do not recommend because it can damamge the liver. This is used for those who have bladder pain. It does help with some urinary tract infections though but can make others worse. Many seemed to have better results with Uristat when it came to bladder pain and it does not stain like phenazopyridine.




PPQ (Pyrroloquinoline Quinone) enhances mitochondria function. Improves memory, protects and heals nerves, improves sleep, mood and reduces fatigue.Reduces symptoms of fibromyalgia,ms,als etc. Reduces urinary tract problems. It is a REDOX agent, neutralizing oxidants then it gets recycled by glutathion. It reduces inflammation and enhances mitochondria function. It prevents NAFL and protects from the inflammation caused by the western diet and our toxic food.




Protects Liver.



Prevents Gut dysbiosis.


Reduces damage from high glutamate levels.


It helps stimulate musculoskeletal repair. This would be goof for those who have been floxxed.


Organic unsulfured Blackstrap Molasses has too many benefits to list but I will try to list some of them. It promotes overall body health. Speeds up wound healing and helps with anemia. Has many nutrients needed for the metabolic pathways. Ease into using it because when the metabolic pathways open your body will start to detox. You do not want to open the flood gates too fast but open them slowly until the toxin levels are low enough for your body to be able to keep up. Also Blackstrap Molasses is high in fulvic acid and you do not want to get your fulvic acid levels to high. It has many benefits but many nutriets lose their benefits if over consumed.




Blackstrap molasses contains chromium which helps with type 2 diabetes.


Alternatives to sugar reduces oxidative stress. Honey and maple syrup helped but organic unsulfured molasses was the best.



Molasses has antibacterial properties.


oligosaccharides found in fruits and vegetables help balance our gut bacteria. Which reduces our risk of chronic illness. They also help prevent gut dysbiosis and cancer.



We need a variety of oligosaccharides because different members of our gut bacteria need different oligosaccharides. I found when I was able to start eating again I had to ease into adding these because I bloated at first. As my good bacteria got established from eating the oligosaccharides the bloating and gas stop occurring. It took me 3 months before I felt no ill effects from getting oligosaccharides. I knew it was necessary to get my good bacteria established. When we have too much of one specific bacteria or if candida is in it’s pathogenic form we will have too many methane producing and sulfur digesting bacteria. This causes high hydroxy radical levels in the body and also causes high sulfate levels which will result in high ammonia levels in the bladder and digestive system. This causes Candida to go from commensal to pathogenic form. When Candida is in pathogenic form it alkalizes which feeds it even more. We have to work on restoring the ph of our bladder and digestive system back to acidic. A few strains of lactobacillus regulate the ph of our bladder. If we are low or deficient in them then we cannot fight pathogens because they prefer an alkaline environment. Our food does not get broke down as quickly and ferments instead of digesting.






Those with SIBO would probably benefit from Mannan because it improves bile production which would speed up digestion and prevent food from fermenting in the digestive system.


This in turn would reduce hydrogen sulfide which would reduce hydroxy radicals and sulfite levels.


The generation of hydroxy sulfate is responsible for many forms of chronic illness.


Those not producing enough FUT2 enzymes will have difficulty reestablishing normal gut bacteria levels oligosaccharide will help with that.


For those who are FUT2 deficient sialyated milk oligosaccharide helps.


Oligosaccharides help modulate our immune system preventing allergies and autoimmunity.



If you have an aging mouse they reduce it’s aging.


Healing Interstitial Cystitis.

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

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

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

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

The key to healing from IC is finding what the triggers were. I do know those who got the Covid vaccine are experiencing IC. Vaccines have been known to cause IC in the past. GMO foods also cause IC from the metabolic, mitochondrial issues and the farm chemicals they spray on them. IC can be caused by infection. Forskolin gets the infection out of tissue but a person still has to kill the infection. Some can have an overgrowth of lactobacillus which is called a cytosolic infection. Many medications especially fluoroquinolones can cause IC. Each has to be addressed by the causes. There is usually more then one factor that leads to IC, it is a synergistic effect of things coming together. But the Covid vaccines seem to be causing IC with no other comorbities.

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


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



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


Interstitial Cystitis can be put in remission. There are many causes 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.


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.


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.



Here is a list of the oxalate content of food. Remember we cannot completely avoid them but this knowledge can help us to avoid them.


This is a list of links to research of things that help with IC.


Diet changes that may help with IC.


Those who have IC usually also have fibromyalgia, the mechanisms that trigger it are the same.



All who have interstitial cystitis have mast cell activation issues. Which is also common in fibromyalgia.




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.


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


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


Bradykinins contribute to IC, grape seed extract reduces bradykinins.


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.


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.



Vaccinations damage the HPA which is found to be common in IC.


Many have said the supplement CystoProtek has helped them.


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.


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


Green tea can be hepatotoxic if consumed in high amounts. So moderation is the key with green tea.



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.


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.



Mycoplasmas are hard to detect and can cause problems. Up to 80% of vaccinations are believed to be contaminated with mycoplasmas.


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.



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.




mTOR is usually high in chronic illness. They have found that reducing mTOR helps alleviate the symptoms of interstitial cystitis.


How to inhibit mTOR.


This study showed that real life experiences where more accurate then clinical research on finding effective treatments.



Many have had good result with cannabinoids but with the metabolic issues I have it made me worse.


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


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.


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.



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.



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


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


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.


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.



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.


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.


Some have found that the administration of GAGs have given them temporary relief from IC.


PI3K and mTor are over expressed in IC. Reducing their expression helps with inflammation.


This is a very good site for information on mTor and how to reduce it.


Milk should be avoided it stimulates mtor.



IC can be mistaken for cancer.


Thymoquinone found in many spices helps with IC.


Melatonin helps with IC. Many with Ic have been found to be deficient in melatonin which can be caused by vaccine injury, toxins and even EMFs.


Take some of the articles with a grain of salt each of us is different and each of us has foods we have to avoid which is unique to us and our metabolic and digestive issues. I believe the first article is the best I have found it to be the most accurate.




PARP inhibition helps with toxin induced bladder injury.


Querciten and Rutin are inhibitors of PARP


Heme Oxygenase 1 expression helps reduce the symptoms of IC.


Sunlight increases Heme Oxygenase.


Hypoxia increase Heme Oxygenase. This can be accomplished by breathing into a paper lunch bag but if done incorrect could deprive you of too much oxygen and make you pass out. Do research if you try something like that to see how it can be done safely.


Exercise stimulates HO-1


New stuff

Lipoxygenase Inhibitors along with Cox inhibitors. helps with IC that has been induce by toxins or drugs.


L-arginine improves bladder control for those who have issues with frequent urination. L-arginine increases NO so those who do not have this problems but have high reactive oxygen species this may make them worse.


A deficiency in PIRT causes excess bladder voiding.


Some have to retrain their bladders once the inflammation and other issues have been addressed.


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.



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.


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.


I eat honey because it is high in zinc and zinc reduces inflammation and ammonia levels.


Our bladders are supposed to be acidic. Infection can make them alkaline which kills our good bacteria.


Zinc and Carnosine work together.


Carnosine also reduces oxidative stress.


Infections especially tick born illness can raise ammonia and quinolinic acid.


Oxidative stress and hyperammonemia can deplete pirt. This causes and over expression of P2X3 which will cause an over active bladder resulting in frequent urination.



They are experimenting now with things that reduce P2X3 over expression.


Antibiotic use is killing our good gut bacteria and may be contributing to the rise in the number of IC cases.


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


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.


Histamines have been found to be high in those with IC and it is why so many with IC may have mental issues.


Melatonin reduces mast cells.


Tocotrienols a type of vitmaine E found in palm oil, rice bran oil, wheat germ, barley, saw palmetto and oats lower histamines and substance P. You have to be careful some of those are GMOs and the BT Toxins from GMOs have been found in mothers fetuses and human brains and causes the same symptoms as food poisoning.


Catalase helps restore the antioxident system back to homeostasis but many things that contain it are high sulfur so make sure you do not have sulfation issues. Eating high sulfur foods and meat when you have sulfation issues will make you worse if you do not address it.


Vitamin A deficiency can cause IC


Food sources of vitamin A. Always try to get your vitamins from natural sources, many vitamins are synthetic and have been shown to have many side effects especially folic acid it causes cancer and damages the NMDA receptor. Folate which is natural does the opposite.




Cat’s Claw helped me. Phytoestrogen has been shown to reduce IC symptoms. Cat’s Claw contains Phytoestrogen is most likely why it helps.


Some have said honey bush tea has helped them.


phytoestrogens are why Peuraria Mirifica and Maca root reduce symptoms of IC.


Malva is in the mallow family. Most plants in the Mallow family reduce inflammation and help heal the gut and tight junction protein layers in the gut and bladder. I grow the cheese plant which is in the mallow family and has the same benefits as marshmallow root.


Toxins, vaccine injury, GMOs and stress can increase glutamate levels which can make IC worse. Plants that helped calm me like honeysuckle, yarrow, opium lettuce and wild daisy really helped me a lot.


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.




Blocking Tumor Necrosis Factor will upregulate IL 10


Ways to inhibit TNF , they recommend ketosis. That worked great for me but those with type 1 diabetes that can result in death.




Lactococcus Lactis found in some cheeses and buttermilk increase IL 10


Sepsis can result in IC. This is caused from being given too high of a dose of antibiotics which kills of pathogens and fungus to quickly. The body becomes overwhelmed with endotoxins or afloxin resulting in a lot of damage throughout the body.


Methylene Blue which can be found in the urinary section at most stores and pharmacies help with sepsis but should not be taken if you are anemic or G6PD deficient. If you have high levels of glyphosate or glufonisate you can be G6PD deficient.



This site has a list of the various forms of Methylene Blue so you will know what to look for on the package.


Atropine also helps with sepsis and has the added benefit of detoxing glufonisate, glyphosate and orthophosphates.




Moringa is good stuff it helps with just about everything.


Proteus Mirabilis is acquire in hospitals usually from catheters and is one of the hardest to get rid of.



Epilobium helps with antibiotic resistant strains of infection. Known as willow herb.


Willow herb also reduces inflammation.


Helps restore antioxidant homeostasis.


Calcium supplements cause urinary tract infection can also raise oxalates. That is why I get my calcium from stinging nettles. If you eat fruits and vegetables you should be getting enough calcium. Most bone lose is caused by either silica or magnesium deficiency. Calcium deficiency is rare.




Joe Pye also known as Gravel Root helps. It is a calcium channel blocker also though and has an alkaloid that can build up in the body so should not be used in high doses or for extended periods of time.


There are toxins in feminine products that can cause IC. Organic or some alternative should be used. Cotton feminine products are from GMO cotton which contains BT Toxin which can cause many problems. This was not mentioned in the article.


I am not big on pharmaceuticals because they treat the symptoms not the cause but many of my friends have said Tempol has helped them. Please research first if you decide to try this.


If you read about glyphosate you will see how it could cause IC. Glufonisate is Bayers version of glyphosate and causes the same health problems. If you read my GMO post you will see that our food is heavily contaminated.


I seen many take metformin. They would do really good at first then get much worse so I don’t trust it. It also causes vitamin B12 deficiencies which can lead to permanent nerve damage.


Things that can cause frequent urination at night.




Many have had good results with lactoferrin. It helps the good bacteria get reestablished. It is not mentioned in the article but it chelates the bad iron from the body and builds up heme by giving the body good iron.



Lactoferrin has been found to break up biofilms and so has serrapeptase. Serrapeptase also breaks up scar tissue but can cause problems if taken in very high doses. It helped me a lot. Biofilms make many infections impervious to the immune system and even drugs.



Biofilm busters.



This article mentions nattokinase. I did not use it because it has estrogen like effects. I figured boobs would not look good on a man.


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.


Japanese Honeysuckle helped me a lot. It is the one with the white and yellow flowers. Most other types of honey suckle are poisonous. It reduces inflammation and has pain killing abilities. It made me sleepy but the baby does of baby benadryl does that to me.


Golden rod helped me. It kills pathogens reduces pain and inflammation. I herxed the first time I used it. This is the European Golden Rod but Solidago Canadensis found in the US has just about the same properties.


I hate to say this because I love salt but salt makes things worse. But studies have shown that if you use see salt you do not crave as much salt because it has more nutrients needed by the body.


Flavocoxid is a combination of ingredients. I took these ingredients separately on my own and they healed me so fast that all heck broke loose from my nerves and muscles waking up when my blood flow improved and my nerves woke up. I got bad muscle spasms and my nerves felt hot. After about three days though I felt great. And each day after I could actually feel it healing me. I did not know about this supplement that already had them in it.


Even newer stuff.

If we do not get enough cholesterol we cannot heal. Cholesterol is needed by the cells to protect us from inflammation, infections, our heart , brain, liver and kidneys cannot function without it. Statins destroy brain cells in a way they cannot repair it almost petrifies them because they deprive them of cholesterol. Read my post on how high oxLDL is a symptom not a cause.



Sculletaria heals things all through the body. I used American Sculletaria which is much more powerful. I would not recommend that because it healed me too quickly and when things started waking from the nerves healing and improved blood flow all heck broke loose for a few days.


I am putting this here for a note, I have not gotten to research it. Pathogens in the bladder induce Indoleamine 2.3-Dioxygenase in the bladder which inhibits immune response.


Antiphospholipid Syndrome can present in the renal system. This can be cause by tick born illness, vaccine injury or farm chimicals in food especially glyphosate.

Thuja helps with cystitis but there are better source then white cedar. Mugwort and wormwood are much better alternative sources of Thuja.


Excess lipid peroxidation can cause many problems, high oxLDL, high ammonia , inflammtion, the list goes on and on. These naturals inhibit lipid peroxidation.


Inhibiting 5-Lo reduces inflammation. Mediterranean Sage an invasive weed in the western states of the United States ihibits 5-Lo.


Oxeye Daisy kills pain and reduces inflammation. I seen no studies on it being a sedative but when I drink it I end up going to sleep every time.


Ebselen is one of the few drugs I would take it reverses sepsis, reduces oxidative stress, heals the brain and bladder and does many other things. Unfortunately they will only prescribe it to people with psychosis.


A list of foods and their oxalate levels. I noticed a few of the low oxalate were GMO which is worse if you read my page on that.


I put five drops of tea tree oil in about 10 ounces of jojoba oil and it really reduced the burning and rashes on my skin. Tea tree reduces histamines and substance P. Do not consume it though.


Proteolytic enzymes helped me a lot. They have many benefits like reducing inflammation, aiding with digestion, kill parasites. They made it so I could eat.


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




This is a good article on reducing inflammation with food and why they work.


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.




Tryptophan was found to be low in those with MCAD.


Foods high in tryptophan to feed the gut bacteria. Many of the things mentioned are dried using glyphosate and glufonisate especially beans and grains so make sure you eat organic. Those destroy our good gut bacteria making us prone to many pathogens.



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


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


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


Rehmania raises blood pressure. I have cardititis and this help get my blood pressure up which made me feel much better. I did not take it everyday though because homeostasis should always be the goal. It also reduces oxidative stress.



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.


If you have chemical sensitivities or sensitivity to odors then you have glucuronidation issues. Calcium-D-Glucarate helps address that. I had problems with this bad. Even the candle section in stores would make me ill and even affect my bladder.



If you have metabolic issues and try to change to a healthier diet it could backfire. We must take the nutrients that support those pathways. If not there will be a lot of food we will not be able to eat.


P53 role in cystitis.


This is only an abstract but it list illnesses caused by high TH17 levels. Vaccine adjuvants, many farm chemicals and heavy medals can cause high TH17 levels. Tick born illness can also if the endotoxin levels get high enough. If you notice you will see many commonalities with IC.


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


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.




These studies show the importance of our gut bacteria to the health of our organs throughout the body.





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



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


They claim it is a genetic issues but other gut bacteria regulate FUT2 secretion


This is a list of gut microbiotia and their effects on the digestive system and the body.


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.



Getting chlamydia shows there is a deficiency in Lactobacilli which balances the ph of our bladders and digestive system. Most pathogens cannot survive in an acid ph which is what the bladder and digestive system are supposed to be.


So an imbalance in our bacteria causes us to become prone to urinary tract infection.


Our bacteria even protects us from respiratory infection.


If you notice these are receptors involved in IC. This study shows that our good bacteria regulate our gene expression. It is the bacteria we inherit from our parents that determines what illnesses we will be prone to. Not only that but the foods we eat determines which genes they turn off and on.






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. We need inflammation and histamines for the body to heal and repair but when there is and imbalance in our gut bacteria the strains that cause them become more numerous and histamine and inflammation levels become too high.


Germ theory has been proven wrong repeatedly yet they base their research on vaccinations on it. Our gut bacteria modulate and train our immune system. So vaccinating overrides our ability to develop immunity which means the only thing it would do is confuse the body.






Our gut bacteria even regulate our biological clock.


Our gut bacteria determine if we will be obese or not.


Our gut bacteria regulate our mood and emotions.



An imbalance in our bacteria in our lungs can result in lung disease.


We even have a gut bone axis and our bone is effected by our gut bacteria.



Our gut bacteria even regulate our cholesterol levels.


This is why it is very important to get polyphenols, oligosaccharides and polysaccharides in our diets. It feeds our beneficial bacteria which promotes better health. There are myths about the sugars in foods like fruits and vegetables feeding candida when it becomes pathogenic but the opposite is true. Much of the false information out there drives me to believe that the pharmaceutical companies put it out there to keep people on a hamster wheel of poor health so they will have a steady customer.






Not only do we need to feed the good gut bacteria but our diets to manipulate our gut bacteria needs to be unique to each of us. A diverse diet gives us a diverse microbiome which protects our health.



The myth I see that is the most damaging is people being told to avoid all fats. They are a necessary nutrient for good health.



Another myth is to avoid carbohydrates. It is a good way to develop autoimmune disease. We need a variety in our diet.


I find it strange that almost all science surrounding modern medicine is being proven wrong by science that is thousands of years old.

We have commensal virome in our gut. What happens when antibiotics or farm chemicals kill them. How do we replace them and restore out health?


Our gut virome also regulate our immune system.


Our gut bacteria even secret non toxic antibiotics that do not kill the good bacteria like man made antibiotics do.


This is a study on female urinary biome and health.


Male urinary biome and health.


If you are prone to E Coli you may be lacking the phage or virus that protects us from it.




If you get tick born illness, yep lacking gut phages.


Peroxisomes secreted by our gut bacteria protect us from excess reactive oxygen species generated during oxidative stress.


This is a list of microbiota and their functions.




This is a symposium on microbiome.


When I ate anything including fruit I got very ill, probiotic yeast help a lot with that. It would feel like a brick was setting in my stomach after I ate. This helped me a lot. Also if I ate carbohydrates I would feel ill this corrected that also.


If you have problems eating dairy these are the strains needed. I had very bad dairy issues. Some of the strains that break down dairy also break down carbohydrates.




These are the strains needed for urinary and bladder issues.




If your microbiome imbalance persist it may be from your sexual partner.




These articles mention the probiotics to avoid if you have high histamines. The second link mentions the ones that reduce 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.



Angelica Archangelica

This is not medical advice it should not be taken as such. I am posting this for informational and educational purposes only. If in doubt do not use a plant if you are not certain of it’s safety or identification.

Angelica is related to carrots and celery so will taste similar. I have Angelica Archangelica and it has a mild celery like taste. Some species of Angelica can cause light sensitivity when eaten. A. Sylvestris is one of them. There are many toxic plants that look very similar so make certain you know this one before you even try to use it. Angelica has a husk like part close to where the stems meet. The one I am familiar with is Angelica Archangelica. It is the only one I have seen. It can get very tall, mine used to be then I cut it down. Every since I cut it down it has not recovered.



Each Angelica species has their own unique benefits. A. Archangelica has free radical scavenging properties, and strong antimicrobial properties and taste good to.



Reduces anxiety



Those with high acetycholine levels should not take it because it can slightly raise acetycholine levels.



Leaves and stems are best for anxiety.


Fights cancer



Has hepatoprotective effects.


Prevents seizures


Prevents skin aging.


Inhibits herpes and coxsackie


If there is poison Hemlock nearby don’t use it . There are claims Angelica and Hemlock can hybridize.

Wild Yam



Dioscoria Villosa

This is not medical advice and should not be taken as such. I am posting this for educational and informational purposes only. Please be careful make sure you know a plant before you use it.

Known as Wild Yam. I have tasted it, it is not to bad. The leaves and root contain estrogen like chemicals and have steroidal like properties. This one has been found to have many benefits for women. There are hundreds of varieties of Discoria and many of them have similar phytochemicals. The most common one found in North America is D Villosa. There is one from China that grows a bigger root. D Villosa is the one I grow. It contains diosgenin which is an estrogen like chemical.



Helps with menstruation and and female fertility.


Has steroidal type properties.



The leaves have antioxidants and do not taste that bad.


Has steroid like properties which reduces pain and inflammation.


Helps with breast cancer.


Helps with hyperglycemia



Not certain of this study haven’t seen others. Claims over consumption can cause kidney fibrosis.


Can inhibit bone loss.


Here is a recent study showing diosgenin fights cancer, inflammation, increases thickness of skin, has antibiotic properties, helps with diabetes, helps with thrombosis (blood clotting), and is and anticoagulant. Has cardioprotective properties.


Prevents oxalates.




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

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

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

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




Biacalein has been shown to be effective against liver fibrosis and correct metabolic disorders.


Skullcap helps with asthma and COPD.


It has antibacterial and anti inflammatory effects which helps prevent periodontal disease.


Effective against various types of cancer.






This would also help interstitial cystitis because this is something cancer patients and those with interstitial cystitis have in common.


Reduces artherosclerosis by reducing oxidative stress.



Reduces inflammation and the way it does it would be very beneficial for those with interstitial cystitis.


Reduces hypertension



Improves chances of having a successful pregnancy.


Helps with autoimmune disorders.


Protects the brain and nerves and stimulates healing.




Helps with NAFLD, fatty liver disease.




Helps fight the flu.



Prevents heart failure.




Reduces bone inflammation.


Helps heal leaky gut.


Helps with diabetes.


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

Ironweed, Veronia species of flowers.



Written by Lee Stevenson. Sorry I am a lousy editor. This is not medical advice this is for educational and informational purposes. If you are ill please seek the help of a knowledgeable naturopath or other professional.

Veronia Noveboracensis known as New York Ironweed is the one I am familiar with. Most of the Veronia species contain Vernolid A which has been shown to inhibit cancer. V Noveboracensis does not contain as much as the others. This is the only species I have seen in person.




Veronia Amygdalina and V. Cinerea were the most potent of the Veronia species.


V Amygdalina reduces oxidative stress and helps with diabetes.


V Cinerea can help with nicotine addiction.


V Amygdalina can reduce oxidative stress.


V amydalina is hepaprotective.


Have not seen toxicity studies on the other Veronia species but V. Cinerea shows no toxicity.


Prickly Lettuce also known as opium lettuce.

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

This is not medical advice this is for educational purposes. If you are ill please seek the aid of a qualified and experienced functional medicine practitioner.

Prickly Lettuce also Known as Opium Lettuce.

This is not medical advice and should not be taken as such. It is for information and educational purposes. Know your plants before using them. If in doubt don’t.

Lactuca Virosa is in the lettuce family it is wild lettuce. It contains the highest amounts of Luctucarium a pain killer that has sedative effects. It is chemically similar to opium but is non addictive. Luctucarium is the white milky substance you see when you peel a leaf from a head of lettuce. Domesticated lettuce seeds are also high in it. Prickly Lettuce has a bitter taste but I kind of like the taste. It has been shown to have anti inflammatory properties.

It is very good for killing pain. It works through the opioid receptors but is not addictive. Lactucins is the ingredient that has the pain killing effects. It is also a sedative so it should not be used when driving or working. When I was researching this I was surpised that chicory also contains lactucin.




Lactones like lactucin helps to reduce inflammation.


Prickly lettuce also stimulates healing in the brain and is neuroprotective.


It has been used to treat Hooping cough.


Many call it health lettuce now. It is very high in minerals and vitamins A and K.


There have been incidences of overdosing but none fatal that I am aware of.


Has been shown to fight malaria.


Information on preparation and usage.


There are a variety of wild lettuce and most are not as potent as L. Virosa.


It also contains vitamin A.



Lobelia also known as indian tabacco.

Lobelia Inflata

This is not medical advice and should not be taken as medical advice. If in doubt don’t please know your plants before using them. Helps those with breathing issues.

Has been used to break nicotine addiction. Has an alkaloid similar to nicotine but non addictive. Has been shown to reduce nicotine withdrawal. Can cause overdose similar to nicotine overdose so has to be used with causion. Most of the lobelia have the same phytochemicals but Lobelia Inflata is the most potent and the one I am most familiar with. I cannot identify the others.



Nicotine like alkaloid.


Can reduce the cancers resistance to apoptosis.


Can help with depression.


Has sedative properties.


Stimulates the VMAT2 receptor also known as the God receptor because it activate when we participate in spiritual things. Vaccines can damage and inhibit the VMAT receptor which can cause psychosis and bipolarism. It also helps break the abuse when addicted to psychtropic drugs.



Some of the chemicals in lobelia are Sigma1 agonist so would help with methamphetamine addiction.


When used in moderation it is hepaprotective.


Helps with asthma and bronchitis but has many side effects if over used.


Lemon Balm

Melissa Officinalis

This is not medical advice and should not be taken as such. If in doubt don’t if you do not know a plant do not use it.

Lemon Balm is good for soothing the stomach and for relaxing. It has also been shown to be good for making a balm for herpes chancres. Improves blood sugar levels, also helps with getting restful sleep. Has been shown to protect the brain cells.




Helps fight viruses even herpes.



Safe to consume in large quantities.


Is good at treating and preventing oxidative stress.


It helps with ventricular arrhythmia.


Has been shown to help with heart palpitations.


Has antimicrobial properties.



The flavonoids found in Lemon Balm along with other herbs have antidepressant properties.


Fights cancer




Reduces premenstrual symptoms.


Improves cognitive function.


Has been shown to reduce histamines.


Japanese Honeysuckle

Lonicera Japonica

Janpanese honeysuckle

Many species of honeysuckle are poisonous so be careful. Japanese honeysuckle will have both white and yellow flowers. It is good for lowering blood pressure and healing the heart and blood vessels. It has relaxant qualities. It has anti inflammatory effects. The whole plant can be used. The type I am speaking of is Lonicera Japonica.

It has been shown to be very effective against upper respiratory infection. It has been one of the top candidates of herbs to use against Sars-Covid because of it’s effectiveness. Japanese honeysuckle has also been found to be very effective against a variety of bacteria infections.

Honey suckle has very potent anti-inflammatory properties so is cardioprotective. It also blocks the negative effects that endotoxins can cause during infection.

Honeysuckle is very potent at inhibiting histamines. Because of it’s potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects it is effective at reducing symptoms of autoimmunity.

Japanese honeysuckle has been found to be effective against fatty liver caused by nutrient deficiencies.

Japanese honesuckle also helps with autoimmunity, and inflammatory diseases like inflammatory bowel because it increases the microbes in the gut that reduces inflammation. Honeysuckle also has potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties which would add to this positive effect. It has even been found to be effective against the flu and coxsackie viruses.

Because honeysuckle has such potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects it has been found to improve heart function and help prevent cardiovascular disease.

Honeysuckle has muscle relaxant properties so it can prevent muscles spasms including spasm that occur in the colon during inflammatory bowel diseases. It does have sedative effective so can cause drowsyness. It has been shown to reduce episodes of depression.

Honey suckle does prevent blood clotting to I would not use it in excess because it could make you prone to bleeding.

It is a tyrosinase inhibitor so it would reduce scarring caused by acne but keep in mind this also means the production of melanin would be inhibited.

If used while trying to conceive it could prevent a women from being able to get pregnant.



Has been shown to be effective against respiratory tract infection.




Has been shown to be neuroprotective.







It inhibits histamines.


Helps with diabetes.https://www.readbyqxmd.com/read/28539735/pharmacognostic-specification-chlorogenic-acid-content-and-in-vitro-antioxidant-activities-of-lonicera-japonica-flowering-bud


Fights cancer


Scavenges Nitric Oxide so would be good for the heart.


Appears to have no toxicity.















Erigeron Annuus and Erigeron Philadelphica

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.

Known as daisy fleabane. They look very similar and have the same taste and health benefits. They are difficult to tell apart and I often confuse them. So I am not sure which I have picutures of but I like the peppery taste. The older they get the hotter they get. The flowers and roots are very hot almost as hot as a habenaro but the burning does not last as long. It taste like for hot black pepper. The younger the plant the milder it is. Many claim you should not eat the roots.


Has been shown to be effective against cancer and fungal infection.


Reduces inflammation


Phytochemicals in fleabane.



Has neuroprotective properties.


Helps prevent aging by inhibiting AGEs.



Prevents damage from oxidative stress.


Contain pyromeconic acid which is very effective against the flu virus.



Ground Cherries

Physalis heterophyllas

I am 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.

Most know them as ground cherries here in Pennsylvania. I have seen the amish plant these among their corn plants. They grow wild in many areas of the U.S. All parts of the plant are toxic except the berries when ripe. The berries are ripe when they turn yellow. They have a slight tart taste, I add them to salsa. If you have eaten a tomatilla then you will know what these taste like because the taste is pretty much the same but the tomatilla is much bigger. Some make pies and jelly from them. I eat them but have not gotten enough to make anything from them. The chipmunks eat them before I can pick them. Many say they taste best if you wait until they drop off the plant. I noticed no difference in taste from ones ripe on the plant and ones that have fallen from the plant.

Though the links are to different varieties of physalis the nutrient and chemical makeup of most of them are pretty much the same so just about any variety of them would have the benefits mentioned in these studies.




Reduces colitis.


Fights cancer


Most all of them even tomatillas contain withanolides. Which fight cancer and inflammation.





Helps protect the liver.


Often times in chronic illness glutathione production is inhibited and quinone levels can become very high. Physalis group of plants have phytochemicals that can increase glutathione and the enzyme needed to reduce quinone.



Scrophularia Marilandica

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.

It is claimed to have many benefits though I only had tea made from the leaves a few times so I would not know any long term effects. People around here in Pennsylvania have referred to it as New York Figwort though I have not seen it referred to as that anywhere else.


The Scrophularia family does contain unique anti inflammatory qualities.


Figwort contains harpogaside which is also found in devils claw. It has been shown to reduce pain and inflammation.


Harpogaside has been shown to reduce LDL levels.


Harpogaside has been shown to reduce osteoperosis.


It has been shown to reduce amyloid-B plaque build up which causes alzheimers.



How harpogaside reduces inflammation.




Eupatorium Perfoliatum

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.

There are many varieties of Boneset but this is the one I am familiar with. Eupatorium Perfoliatum is the one that is most common in my area. It is great for fighting the cold and flu. It dramatically reduces the duration of both. It has also been shown to fight cancer. I have used it when I have gotten ill and could not believe how fast it worked the results were surprising.

Boneset has many amazing properties but can be toxic so should only be used when very ill and not for extended periods of times. Also something to keep in mind. The dose makes the poison. If you drink too much water you will flush your electrolytes out and can cause a heart attack. So even though many plants contain alkaloids that can harm the body in high doses or if taken in for extended periods of time they can harm the body. Borage is one such food that contains an alkaloid that can build up in the body and harm it.


Some claim drying the herb destroys the toxic alkaloid.


Now to show the benefits if used in moderation.



It reduces inflammation and will lower cholesterol.


Has great antiviral properties.



It has even been shown to be effective against protozoa infection.



Dipsacus Fullonum

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.

It is considered invasive in the US but I have not had a problem with it spreading because the deer and ground hogs love it. As a matter of fact because of that I have a difficult time getting it to grow. It is very high in nutrition, I love the taste of the leaves. First year roots are very tasty but second year roots are bitter and tough.

Teasel is amazing it helps with everything, tick born illness, cancer, osteoporosis. The list goes on and on. It really helped with my Lyme Disease. It is great at reducing inflammation. It helps with amyloidosis which can be caused by vaccine injury especially vaccines that contain aluminum. Glyphosate and other farm chemicals can cause it. Also infection can cause amyloid cyst to form. This is a list of the phytochemicals in teasels and what they do.



This is one of the best sites for learning to identify plants and learn their uses.


Uses of teasel.
