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.
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.
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.
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.
