Benefits of Rehmannia.

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

Chinese foxglove (Rehmannia glutinosa)

Rehmania helps to prevent insulin resistance which causes type 2 diabetes.

Rehmannia is neuroprotective so prevents nerve damage and improves brain function. Rehmannia also protects the brain from glutamate toxicity. Because rehmannia prevents glutamate toxicity it would also help to reduce convulsions because it would improve the function of the GABA receptors.

Rehmannia protects the body from the negative effects of endotoxins. It has potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

Rehmannia is best taken at night because it has sedative effects.

Rehmannia my help prevent osteoporosis.

Rehmannia improves mitochondrial function which increases ATP levels. This is also why rehmannia increases exercise endurance. Rehmannia also prevents muscle atrophy. This would also prevent obesity and diabetes but when first taken it can cause hypoglycemia. I would never take this excessively or in high doses.

Rehmannia my prevent fibrosis in the lungs.

Rehmannia does help to prevent type 2 diabetes but can cause hypoglycemia. Rehmannia also improves the health of the pancreas.

Rehmannia helps to prevent some of the effects of aging by turning on the antiaging genes. It also stimulate autophagy which helps to clear infection, clean junk out of the cells and improve mitochondria function which would help prevent obesity and diabetes.

Ok this study has to be read separately. The reason I say this is because it helps to prevent Parkinson’s. It does it by inhibiting the very things that herpes viruses use to infect cells. Is Parkinson’s actually an infection with a herpes virus?

Benefits of activated charcoal.

Activated charcoal

Activated charcoal can help reduce the resorption of endotoxins and absorb virions from RNA viruses which would prevent them from infecting cells. It can also help to reduce ammonia levels in the body. Activated charcoal should not be taken too close to food consumption or it will prevent nutrient absorption. I am sorry I am not going to post studies this time because most of my knowledge of this is through experience in groups on Facebook and seeing the dramatic improvements in peoples health when using it for these purposes. There are studies showing it absorbs viral virions from viruses such as herpes and other RNA viruses but they are difficult to find.

Dandelion (Taraxacum spp)

There are many species of dandelion and most are very chemically similar and have the same benefits. Dandelion stimulates DIG1 which detoxes glyphosate and organophosphates from the body. Those are found in high levels in our foods and contribute to autoimmunity, cancer, diabetes and obesity. Dandelion has been found to protect from liver damage. Dandelion has been found to be very effective against a variety of types of cancer. Dandelion is very high in nutrients. Dandelion has very potent antiviral properties. Dandelion protects the liver because it has potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It has been found to inhibit the hepatitis B virus. It inhibits mTorc which means it would prevent premature aging and also inhibit herpes virus replication. It helps with gut inflammation and interstitial cystitis because it inhibits NLRP3, NLRP3 is over expressed in IC and inflammatory bowel diseases. Dandelion helps to reduce endotoxins in the body and reduce the symptoms of sepsis. Dandelion improves bile flow and digestion. Dandelion contains latex which can cause a person who has leaky gut to react. I did react to it when I first started using it but I continued to use it in slow amounts and it eventually started healing me because the effects it has on healing the gut. Once my gut was healed I stopped reacting to things that contained latex like avocado and dandelion. Dandelion reduces inflammatory cytokines found in sepsis, Covid , herpes and many other infections. It helps prevent iron overload in the body. Dandelion prevents glutamate toxicity in the brain and activates NRF2 which is the master regulator of the antioxidant system. Dandelion has been found to inhibit RNA viruses like HIV. Dandelion has been shown to both protect from the effects of the endotoxins from bacteria infection and to have antibacterial properties. Most herbs that work against HIV and Covid will also work against herpes viruses.

Benefits of Eleuthero.

Eleuthero (Eleutherococcus senticosus)

Eleuthero is also know as Siberian Gensing. It is an adaptogen meaning it helps to improve adrenal function and normalize hormones. It helps to prevent diabetes and obesity. It increases IgG and IgM levels. It has been shown to clear mold toxins and endotoxins from the body. It improves blood flow to the brain which improves mental function. Eleuthero is a stimulant so would be best to take it in the morning. Eleuthero has been found to be very effective against RNA viruses especially the flu. It increases athletic endurance. It has been shown to reverse some of the effects of Parkinson’s disease. It prevents nerve damage and has been shown to stimulate nerve repair. It reduces the effects of stress and speed up the recovery time from stress. Eleuthero has been found to dramatically improve lymphatic function. Eleuthero improves mental health and social functioning. Eleuthero reduces the occurrence of outbreaks from herpes viruses. Eleuthero combined with vitamin D3 and calcium has been shown to reduce osteoporosis. When combines with L-carnitine eleuthero increases Beta oxidation which prevents obesity and diabetes. Beta oxidation is inhibited by RNA viruses especially Sars-Covid and herpes viruses. Eleuthero improves skin health. Most plants in the gensing family have very similar phytochemicals Panax gensing has very similar effects as Siberian Gensing.
