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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Acidosis and alkalosis are signs of health problems that need addressed. If the health problems causing them aren’t addressed then trying to fight any illness is futile and is like running on a hamster wheel. I have posted on those.

This man tells his story about beating cancer. I have met many who have beat it in a similar way.

https://www.theherbprof.com/Index.htm

Oxidative stress contributes to chronic illness and cancer. You will hear it mentioned often. There is a test for oxidative stress. It is the Urinary 8-OHdG test.

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0009898103004534?via%3Dihub

The saddest part of all about cancer is that it is the most profitable of all medical treatments so many doctors have deliberately misdiagnosed people with cancer out of greed.

https://www.healthnutnews.com/more-doctors-confessing-to-intentionally-diagnosing-healthy-people-with-cancer-to-make-money/

Mitochondria regulate our immune response and oxidative stress. Many things can cause mitochondria dysfunction. This can lead to metabolic issues, excess oxidative stress and autoimmunity which can lead to cancer and other chronic illness.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6052888/

There are many problems in cancer research and it leads to many mistakes in their attempts to cure it. The part that frustrates me is the main causes of cancer are things like inflammation, metabolic disorders and autoimmune issues. Instead of trying to correct those and restoring homeostasis they keep looking at the cancer and cannot see the whole picture most of the time. Even in this article they do not mention those things when they talk about the problems in cancer research.

Cox is found to be high in inflammatory diseases including cancer.

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0002961004003587

I believe people are focusing too much on the symptom and not the cause. If they focused on getting the body at homeostasis they would have more success in fighting any chronic illness including cancer. Cancer is a symptom not necessarily the cause of the illness. Science now focuses on the symptoms instead of the cause. I guess this may be because the pharmaceutical industry is the cause of many types of chronic illness and if they looked at the cause they may lose funding from the pharmaceutical industry. Also the biotech industry is owned by the pharmaceutical industry and it is a cause of much of the chronic illness now days. So many researchers are stuck in a hard place, if they looked at the cause they risk losing funding and most likely would lose their jobs.

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.

Lactate and the Warburg effect.

https://escholarship.org/uc/item/0m5608vq

Fructose feeds cancer in a different way then glucose does. I do not believe fructose in fruits would do this because natural sources of fructose are usually things that inhibit cancer growth. When things get extracted from a plant and are in their pure form the way they effect the body changes and it acts more like a drug with side effects.

Some forms of cancer will decrease when deprived of glucose. Also often times lactic acidosis is present which indicate a health problem that needs addressed. I find it odd that they know what has brought on the cancer but never mention how to address the metabolic or other health issues causing the cancer but they discuss how to treat the symptoms in many studies.

Oxidative Stress and inflammation contribute to cancer. Most do not see the whole picture, they are seeing the cancer as the cause. Just as with other things they view a symptom as the problem.

Even though these cells were used to develop vaccines I cannot find any research on their safety of being injected into a person. So one would have to conclude since they are an aggressive type of cancer cell and vaccine are most likely contaminated with them then they would contribute to the rise in cancer.

People were promoting antioxidants for cancer. 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Adding to this is G6PD deficiency causes anemia. G6PD deficiency can protect from cancer. Now this is where the pharmaceutical companies would look at the deficiency and try to treat it instead of seeing why the body may be reducing G6PD levels. 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.

SPINK1 protects the pancrease, excess SPINK1 can lead to cancer. 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.

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.

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

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

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

Issues with the Folate pathway can cause Type 1 diabetes. I wouldn’t doubt if folic acid could contribute to this. It is man made and the body does not produce enough of the enzyme needed to break it down. Many have high levels of folic acid which can effect the brain, increase our risk of cancer and have many other negative health effects on our body. Sadly the scientific and medical community use folate and folic acid interchangeably.  Science has gotten very sloppy now days. Folate is the natural form.

Metabolic, inflammation and infection can cause thrombosis and fibrosis. These are found to be common in diabetes so if someone has diabetes they need to address the cause of the oxidative stress , inflammation or metabolic issues or whatever else is causing the health problems. Diabetes is a symptom not a cause. Allopathic medicine only looks at and treats symptoms they do not address the cause. There is no money in curing. A healthy patient is a lost customer. These are a sign of endothelial dysfunction.

Folate helps with endothelial dysfuncton. They say folic acid, for some reason many medical professionals use the term folate interchangebly with folic acid which most know by now is toxic to the body. I do not know if they are doing it to promote it for better sales or if they are in error or are just doing sloppy science but folic acid can be toxic to the body. Folate is the safe one it is natural.

These studies frustrate me. Instead of looking at what is causing the bile issues they are looking at the symptoms and how to resolve them. The symptoms are not the cause. They need to be checking for leaky gut, gut dysbiois, infections , metabolic issues or nutrient deficiencies. Or causes of inflammation they can all effect bile production and reabosorption. Science does not seem to be real anymore they all seem to have tunnel vision shaped by corporate science.

Posting these links to demonstrate something. Inflammation, oxidative stress and many other things cause Fe3 to build up in the body to cause iron toxicity. The body cannot use Fe 3. Lactoferrin and curcumin reduce Fe3 . This would increase Gs/1 which should let B cell grow. Because Fe3 cannot be used by the body it would work as if a person was deficient in iron. They chelate iron from the body to fight cancer because it reduces Gs/1.  So by reducing Fe3 in the body it would let our bodies restore iron levels back to normal which should promote B cell growth. I could find little research to verify what I believe but I am convinced it would help.

Horsweed

 

Conyza Canadensis

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3516493/

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.

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

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

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.

Smilax

Smilax

This is not medical advice and should not be taken as such. I am posting this for informational and educational purposes only. If in doubt don’t get to know a plant and it’s safety before using it.

There are many plants in the Smilax family in my area which is the eastern part of the United States. The ones I am familiar with are S. Ecirrhata, and S. Tamnoides. S. Tamnoides has briars on them that really hurt when jagged by them. We also have S. Glauca, S. Herbaceous, S. Rotundifolia, S. Pulverulenta, and S. Pseudochina in my area. I have eaten the leaves and like the taste. Many say the young shoots taste like asparagus. I have never eaten the roots but they are edible.

Curly Dock and Yellow Dock

 

Yellow dockRumex Crispus

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

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

Velvet Leaf Plant

Abutilon Theophrasti

This is not medical advice I am posting this for information and educational purposes and should not be taken as medical advice. If in doubt don’t make certain of a plant before you use it.

I have eaten the seeds but no other parts. This plant is new to me. I know it is Roundup ready because I have seen it in field that had been sprayed by Glyphosate containing products so be careful where you forage it. They can overtake a crop and can reduce production. The fiber is used to make rope. I have seen sites that claimed the seeds can remain viable in the soil for many many years. So when I forage them for the seeds I pull the whole plant out because I get them from a friend who grows his crops organically and uses no harmful chemicals.

Skullcap

Scutellaria

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.

Purslane a super food.

 

 

Portulaca Oleracea

Purslane is a super food it has almost all the nutrients the body needs including fats needed by the body. It is slightly tangy in the morning but after the sun has hit it the tangyness goes away and it has a nutty flavor when cooked. I love it raw in salads and it is great in stir fries. It is very high in mucilage so can be used to thicken soups. It is an unusual plant because when broken off the detach branch can form seeds. It is one of my favorites and I grow it in big quantities because of the many uses it has.

Luctuca 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.

Lady’s Thumb

 

Persicaria Maculosa it is also referred to as Polygonum Persicaria.

This is not medical advice and should not be taken as such. If in doubt don’t. Make sure you know a plant before you use it. I have eaten Lady’s Thumb, it does not have much taste but a similar plant that can easily be mistaken for lady’s thumb has a peppery taste. I do not think it has much nutritional value but some studies have shown it reduces symptoms of herpes.

Joe Pye

This is for educational purposes and should not be taken as medical advice. If in doubt don’t, make sure you know a plant before you use it. The poison is in the dose. Many plants we eat contain things that could be poisonous if eaten in large amounts but are beneficial when consumed in moderation.

The one I am referring to is Eutrochium Maculatum. They all pretty much have the same phytochemicals. Joe Pye also known as gravel root has a wide variety of health benefits. It fights many pathogens including fungal infection. When I first made a tea of it and was still beginning treatment for my Lyme I herxed bad. It is very potent as an antibiotic. It reduces inflammation and fights cancer. Some species of gravel root contain alkaloids that can damage the liver if taken for too long or in to high amounts.

Fleabane

 

Erigeron Annuus and Erigeron Philadelphica

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.

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.

Figwort

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.

https://www.henriettes-herb.com/eclectic/kings/scrophularia.html

The Scrophularia family does contain unique anti inflammatory qualities.

Feverfew

 

Tanacetum Parthenium

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.

Feverfew is another one of those herbs that have been a life saver for me and my battle with Lyme. I could not believe how much better I felt in the morning after taking it. It has been shown to reduce inflammation and fight cancer. It has been shown to reduce headaches and other types of pain. Long term use of Feverfew can result in toxic rebound withdrawal headaches. This is an herb I only use when I have the flu or a cold. It dramatically reduces the symptoms and duration of my illness.

Evening Primrose

 

 

Oenothera Biennis

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 health benefits to Evening Primrose. I found making a tea with the roots really helped in healing my gut. The roots are very high in mucilage. I found all parts of the plant to taste almost identical to ginger and even seem to have the same effects at reducing nausea from my herxing. I make teas from just about all parts of the plant and once in a while put the leaves in my salads.

Canadian Thistle

 

Cirsium Arvense

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

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

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

Teasel

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.
