Feeding the Microbiome and Resistant Starch

Resistant starch is a type of fibre and is one of the fuel sources that feeds our amazing microbiome. It gets its name from being resistant to digestion and when it arrives in the large intestine this is where it gets to work. It promotes fermentation of short chain fatty acids, which then promotes the production of a compound called butyrate, which plays a key role in promotion of gut health and general well being.

Another reason why it’s so good for us is because it “flushes” out the evil bacteria, and instead, nourishes and feeds the friendly bacteria taking its spot.    As fibre passes through the digestive system, it flushes away waste, harmful toxins, and LDL (bad) cholesterol from your system.

A recent study found that those on a resistant starch enriched food plan resulted in a loss of abnormal fat levels (LDL) in their blood, setting them up for improved heart health.

So, as you can see, it is a key nutrient for maintaining an optimal level of health (definitely worthy of that “bestie” title).

BENEFITS OF RESISTANT STARCH

• promotes intestinal barrier integrity
• Decreases toxin absorption
• Decreases abdominal pain wand IBS symptoms
• Enhances insulin sensitivity
• Upregulates mitochondrial function, therefore it increases metabolism
• Reduces inflammation
• Increases weight loss

Interestingly, the way you prepare starch-containing foods affects their starch content, as cooking or heating destroys most resistant starches. However, you can “recapture” the resistant starch content of some foods by letting them cool after cooking.
Foods high in Resistant Starch

1)COOKED AND COOLED POTATO

If prepared correctly and left to cool, potatoes are a good source of resistant starch.
I like to cook them in bulk and have half a cup of cooled potato in salads. With some herbs and spices they are my favourite. Its important to have them cold as this will contain significant amounts of resistant starch.

2) RAW POTATO STARCH

You can totally step up your resistant starch consumption by having actual potato starch. It is a white powder and is one of the most concentrated sources of resistant starch, with around 72% of the starches in it being resistant. You only need 1-2 tablespoons a day and I like adding it to smoothies and my cooled porridge. Its important not to heat it as this destroys the resistant starch.

3) GREEN BANANAS AND FLOUR-

Green bananas are another amazing source of resistant starch and fibre. As bananas ripen, the resistant starch transforms into sugar which makes ripe bananas sweet.
You can also purchase green banana flour to super charge your resistant starch. You can add this one to smoothies too or use in baking.

4) OATS

Oats are one of the most convenient ways to add resistant starch to your diet.
Letting your cooked oats cool for several hours or overnight could increase the resistant starch even further. Then adding some potato starch and green banana flour, you’ll have a very happy microbiome.

5) BEANS AND LEGUMES

Different types of beans can yield varying amounts of resistant starch.
Consider these sources of resistant starch
• Peas
• Lentils
• White beans

Adding 1–3 teaspoons of inulin (or gum arabic or guar gum or pectin) acts synergistically to magnify the prebiotic effectiveness of the resistant starch. Passion Fruit skins are very high in pectin. They can be boiled and rendered and the water used in cooking and teas.

Here are other types of RS in foods

Apples

Apples are a delicious fruit with many prebiotic benefits. Approximately 50 percent of the fiber in apples is pectin, which increases butyrate, a short-chain fatty acid that feeds beneficial gut bacteria and decreases the population of harmful bacteria.

Polyphenols, which are also found in apples, and pectin have been linked to improved digestive health and fat metabolism. An apple a day may not solve all your problems, but it sure can add some balance to your microbiome.

Flaxseeds

Flaxseed is rightfully dubbed a superfood. Chock-full of phytonutrients, flaxseeds boast an incredible concentration of lignans, a powerful group of antioxidants. These seeds also contain soluble fiber and can help move things along through your digestive tract.

Try adding flaxseeds to Greek yogurt, kefir, or on whole grain toast with nut butter.

Jicama, Yacon and Burdock

Okay, so, these are actually three different foods, but hear us out. Root vegetables like Jicama, Yacon and Burdock root contain high concentrations of inulin, a prebiotic fiber proven to improve gut health. It’s also thought that these slow-digesting, complex carbs have antioxidant effects and anti-inflammatory properties.

Asparagus

Rich in prebiotics, asparagus is as healthy as it is delicious. Asparagus stalks are also rich in inulin, and adding asparagus to your diet can help promote digestive regularity.

Your asparagus options are essentially unlimited: Eat this veggie steamed, sauteed, roasted, or raw in salads. Enjoy over quinoa or rice, in with sweet potatoes, or in a range of dishes.

Bananas

Bananas, especially when they still have their green tips, are brilliant at restoring harmony in your gut’s ecosystem. Bananas also have high concentrations of potassium and magnesium, which can aid against inflammation.

Foods to Eat for a Healthy Gut

When it comes to gut health, your best bets will always be fermented foods, cultured foods, fruits, and vegetables. Whole and sprouted grains can have a healthy place in a gut-friendly diet, too. In general, it’s a good idea to keep processed foods, added sugar, alternative sweeteners, and trans fats to a minimum.

Remember: The trillions of microorganisms in your gut can influence everything from your sleep quality and energy levels to your immune function and hormones. It’s best to keep them happy!

RICE PUDDING BALLS

Ingredients

2 cups unsweetened almond milk
2 TB honey
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt, to taste
1/2 cup cooked rice (risotto rice)
1/2 cup golden raisins
1/2 cup almond flour
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut

How to Prepare

Put a large saucepan over medium-high heat and add almond milk, stevia, honey, cinnamon, and salt and bring to a boil. Add rice and stir well. Reduce heat to low and place a lid to partially cover pan, stirring often to prevent rice from sticking to bottom, until rice is tender, approximately 30 minutes.

Remove from heat and pour rice mixture into a bowl. Stir in raisins, almond flour, and vanilla extract. Mix well. Cover with plastic wrap or foil and refrigerate at least 3 hours until firm and cold.

Scoop by slightly rounded tablespoons and form rice mixture into balls using the palms of your hands  then roll in shredded coconut (you should get about 20 rice balls). Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil and refrigerate until firm, at least 2 hours. Enjoy!

A word of Warning-

If you are new to resistant starch you need to introduce these foods in very slowly. As the starch ferments in your large intestine this can cause bloating and pain. If you start with a small dose like, ½ teaspoon of potato starch then slowly increase, your microbiome has a chance to make positive changes to deal with the increased food source.

Here are some more recipes:

 gut-healing smoothie!

1/2 – 1 cup almond milk (or coconut milk)
1 cup Potatoe Starch water
1/4 teaspoon full spectrum probiotic
3 stalks kale
3 stalks chard
1/2 cup f organic berry  (raspberries, blueberries and strawberries)
(you can add bone broth too)

Add all of these delicious ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. Enjoy!

Fermented Good Guys

(This is Part Three of my natural Parasite Cleanse) http://www.seedsofwellness.life/parasite-cleanse/

Whether you like it or not, your body is teeming with bacteria. Don’t worry! These bacteria  pose no threat to you, and are essential to maintaining key bodily functions and overall health. This community of bacteria is often referred to as a microbiome, and your whole system can go out of whack if your microbiome is off-balance.

Probiotics provide a boost to the naturally-occurring beneficial bacteria that live inside your body’s digestive tract.

I recommend also eating 1/2 cup of Resistant Starch (potato sale, cool rice or quinoa salad, plantain chips)

My home brewed blend is fermented fruits, pickle juice, ginger and cinnamon and infused  withkefir, cabbage juice, Spirulina and Nutritional Yeast.

  1. The Fruits I use: grapes, kiwi, banana, pinnepple, papaya, grapefruit skin
  2. Pickle Juice – cucumbers are fermented by Lactobacillus bacteria
  3. Cabbage Juice contains natural sources of L-glutamine, S-methylmethionine, gefarnate and glucosinolates, which can help protect the stomach and digestive tract by healing the mucous membrane lining.
  4. Spirulina (which I hope to be growing soon)
  5. Nutritional Yeast

About 70% of our immune system resides in the gut, which means that our gut health and immune health are intricately connected. The probiotics in fermented foods support and enhance immunity while helping to modulate immune-related conditions such as inflammatory diseases, allergies and some types of cancer. Fermented foods also have anti-microbial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-allergenic properties – this helps us combat infections and cultivate healthy immunity.

This is not a commercial strain.  I  do it wild!   I allow the wild microbes that nature provides to do the fermenting.  While I can’t say precisely which microorganisms are working in each product, I can name some of the most common types of probiotics, most of which are likely to be in the mix.The Kefir contains:

  1. Saccharomyces
  2. Lactobacillus caucasicus
  3. Leuconnostoc species
  4. Lactic Streptococci
  5. Lactose fermenting yeasts

The following types of probiotics are our friends; in fact, they are essential to our health, they protect us from disease, they enhance our nutrition, and they turn ordinary vegetables into fabulously tasty fermented superfoods..

  1. Bifidobacterium bifidum. This microbe is found in the stomach and intestinal tract. It shows promise in suppressing infection in the stomach of Helicobacter pylori, the pathogen that causes stomach ulcers. Several studies show that it helps lower and contain the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). It’s typically found in sauerkraut, kimchi, and pickles.
  2. Bifidobacterium lactis. This gut bacteria’s role as a probiotic has been well studied and its chief benefit to the human body is its ability to modulate and strengthen the immune system. It’s found in fermented vegetables such as wildbrine’s sauerkraut, kimchi, and pickled veggies, as well as in yogurt.
  3. Bifidobacterium longum. This bacterium has a positive effect on the mix of other probiotics in the intestines, causing a significant increase in the amount of biotin (vitamin B7) produced. Biotin helps the body turn food into energy. The bacteria are common in fermented vegetables.
  4. Lactobacillus acidophilus. This is the beneficial workhorse bacterium that ferments wildbrine’s line of probiotic-laden vegetables. It may prevent diarrhea, minimize symptoms of IBS, help lower cholesterol, and support vaginal health. It contributes greatly to the healthy ecology of the gut microbiome.
  5. Lactobacillus casei and L. rhamnosus. These closely related probiotics are among the most widely researched species of lactobacillae that likely occur in the brine of vegetable products. They have been shown to prevent or treat diseases and disturbances to the gut biome, stabilizing and strengthening it.
  6. Lactobacillus reuteri. Get to know this one-celled friend, for it’s an all-around healer. In humans, it’s found in the gut microbiome, urinary tract, on the skin, and in breast milk. It produces antimicrobial substances that inhibit disease-causing germs and remodels the gut bacteria mix to increase human health. It can reduce inflammatory agents while promoting T-cell formation. (T-cells are immune cells that protect the body from diseases and cancer.) L. reuteri also strengthens the intestinal wall, preventing leaky gut syndrome and its impact on inflammatory disease throughout the body.
  7. Lactobacillus salivarius. L. salivarius is one of the lactic acid bacillae that occurs in the fermentation of vegetables and it helps improve oral health by suppressing gum disease, reducing dental caries, and checking halitosis. It also confers health benefits to the intestinal tract.
  8. Streptococcus thermophilus. This friendly bacterium produces lactase enzyme that helps people digest milk more efficiently. It also decreases ulcerative colitis symptoms, decreases leaky gut symptoms that cause inflammation throughout the body, decreases IBS symptoms, enhances the immune system, prevents and fights pneumonia, fights Clostridium difficile (a particularly nasty intestinal disease), and has many other health benefits.These are just a handful of the most important probiotics that may be found in my brine. There are hundreds more.
  9. I add Spirulina and Brewer’s Yeast too!

Ever wonder how our ancestors fared without personal medicine cabinets to ease every ailment? While the centuries leading up to our current era were filled with their own set of challenges and many practices were quite different, some used then actually led to better gut health than we have today. You see, each person has their own unique microbiome, which houses nearly 100 trillion bacteria that outnumber our human cells by a factor of around 10 to 1. Being mostly composed of bacteria might sound a little odd, but that’s just because many people only think of bacteria as germs that can make us sick. However, that’s actually not the case at all!

Your body is comprised of all kinds of bacteria that have different jobs within your body, and most of them are probiotics that serve a beneficial purpose—they can help your body produce vitamins, help you absorb nutrients from your food, and even support your mood. Probiotic bacteria can also serve as placeholders, taking up room by colonizing within your digestive tract so that other bacteria can’t settle in, multiply, and create chaos for your system.

Full Spectrum Parasite Cleanse and Microbiome Aid

Ever wonder how our ancestors fared without personal medicine cabinets to ease every ailment? While the centuries leading up to our current era were filled with their own set of challenges and many practices were quite different, I beleive they had healthier guts and microbiomes than most of us do today.   The advent of our processed and non-organic, GMO foods and the destruction of our soil microbiology has created an environment for many parasites, pathogens, anaerobic bacterias and destruction overload of fungi…and our terrain (soil within) mirrors this situation.

You see, each person has their own unique microbiome, which houses nearly 100 trillion bacteria.  We are full of bugs.   They outnumber our human cells by a factor of around 10 to 1.  Knowing this really puts a twist on the germ theory!  Being mostly composed of bacteria might sound a little odd, but that’s just because many people only think of bacteria as germs that can make us sick. However, that’s actually not the case at all….if our microbiome and terrain is healthy they keep us well, healthy and happy (gut – brain connection).

Our body is comprised of all kinds of bacteria that have different jobs within your body, and most of them are probiotics that serve a beneficial purpose—they can help your body produce vitamins, help you absorb nutrients from your food, and even support your mood. Probiotic bacteria can also serve as placeholders, taking up room by colonizing within your digestive tract so that other bacteria can’t settle in, multiply, and create chaos for your system.  There is evidence now that they control over 75% and more of our immune system and turn on fat reducing genes.

In the work I do (live and dried blood analysis combined with iridology) I adhere to the pleomorphic theory that states that disease or parasites are caused by variations in the host’s internal milieu, or “terrain”.  Terrain literally means “life”.   The microbes in our body respond by changing form in order to survive.  They connect, react, morph and meld.  According to this theory, the vitality of the host (you) is the principal factor.  When the microbiome is unhealthy (caused by antibiotics, poor diet, sugar, Mercury amalgams, and not enough fibre), our GI tract actually becomes anaerobic (lacking oxygen)   The anaerobic condition wipes out the good guys (bugs). because they actually do break down nutrients, minerals and help us uptake our nutrition.  They release hormones and exudates that keep us healthy.   When natural balance is not present, the bad guys are welcomed in or start to proliferate.   As they do, they excrete their own acids.  This is called Leaky Gut as the tissues (inner skin) is weakened.    It really is no different to how we should be treating our soils…even permacutlure techniques that do not consider the microbiome is destructive.

It is important to have a balanced, nourished and healthy terrain.  When you have pathogens and parasites, it is because the body’s terrain is likeable to them.   The development process actually causes a leaky gut as the tissues are weakened by their presences.   The micro-organims multiply, excrete toxic waste and invade the venous wall.   Their deposits (poop) is acidifying.  In other words, it is not the organisms that make you sick, it is the waste products of the metabolism of those organisms that make you sick.   The changes in the internal environment made the “terrain” become attractive and hospitable to different types of other invading organisms: a weak host not only “invited” invading organisms to take up residence, but actually cultured them, inducing their changes into pathological forms.   This is why we often see an over growth of candida (a gut flora fungus) with parasites.

A strong and vital terrain, on the other hand, is inhospitable and would keep pathological organisms and disease at bay. This is the pleomorphic terrain theory of disease.

I set out to create a parasite cleanse but also wanted to support the microbiome.   I see a lot of parasites and parasite markers in the live blood.   So, why not aim at all possible pathogens at the same time.   I wanted to create a protocol that would address the worms, the protozoa and the flukes and change the internal environment.    I wanted it to work for children, adults and even be used as a preventative (dosge adjustment).  Here is what I arrive at:

Three Part Parasite Cleanse and Microbiome Protocol

Part One is a cacao ball
Part Two is a Herbal Gelatin
Part Three is a full spectrum probiotic made naturally

However, there are many of us infected with parasites and cleansing the body of parasites always has a profound effect on restoring health successfully.   Factors for us to be aware of that create disturbances in the Pleomorphic chain of states include:

  1. Low blood oxygen and cell vitality (arising from any variety of reasons)
  2. Ongoing imbalances in PH;  An imbalance in blood sugar
  3. Overgrowth of bowel-based Fungi (ie: the Candida);
  4. Emotional trauma

There are hundreds of known parasites that inhabit the human body.   I see many in the live blood and always follow up with a stool sample test.  One day soon I intend to do this in my practice.   There are many bacterias and fungi that are symbiotic in nature.   But, they can be pathogenic too.

In the medical world, they are classified into two main groups of parasites that can cause diseases: protozoa and helminths.  Sometimes, people affected are asymptomatic – meaning they have no symptoms.   But, that doesn’t means they should be ignored because they will raise up when stress or immune situations are happening. At the end of this article the types of parasites I have researched for the cleanse I created.

I strongly recommend doing a Baking Soda Protocol with this cleanse with some considerations.  While it is important to alkalinize the body, you do not want to alkalinize the stomach.   Doing so would result in nutritional deficiencies of iron, B12 and other nutrients (such as the fat soluble vitamins)  

The protocol is: 1/2 to 1 tsp of baking soda in lime juice (or ACV, between meals and before bed, i.e. three times a day.

The important thing is to take it on an empty stomach, so it can suck out the excess “deposit acid” from the acid producing cells lining the stomach (thereby generating more bicarbonate which goes into the blood stream) and not interfere with the acid that is needed at the times of eating. One needs acid in the stomach to digest food obviously so the baking soda should not be taken around meal times.  If you eat breakfast at 8:00 A.M. and lunch at noon then you would take the first dose of Base Powder at 10:00 A.M., the same between lunch and dinner. It is best to sip it even, so it can suck out acid from the stomach over a longer time, not all at once as with one big gulp. If there isn’t time to sip it, just drink it anyway. This, done consistently, over time, is what makes the difference.  It is best not to eat before you retire at night. If you don’t eat before bed time then you can take 1/2 to 1 tsp. of Base Powder before bed also. If you do eat before bed then you would not take the Base Powder that night.

First thing in the morning, drink one large 12 oz glass of lemon or lime water (or apple cider vinegar).  This squeezes the liver and gets the system read for the herbs and food in the cleanse.

PART ONE Cacao ball ingredients  – To be eaten 1/2 hour after the Lemon water on an empty stomach

Part Two Herbal Gelatin – To be taken at night before bed.  It would be beneficial to also take 1 tsp pysillium husks (that act like a broom cleaning the GI tract.

I

Part Three
Natural and Homemade Probiotic – 1 tsp to be taken before each meal

Probiotics provide a boost to the naturally-occurring beneficial bacteria that live inside your body’s digestive tract.   I recommend also eating 1/2 cup of Resistant Starch (potato sale, cool rice or quinoa salad, plantain chips) during this cleanse as it feeds the good bug guys.

My blend is fermented fruits and blended with Pickle Juice, ginger and cinnamon infused kefir, cabbage juice, Spirulina and Nutritional Yeast.Fermented Fruits: grapes, kiwi, banana, pineapple, papaya, grapefruit skin

  9. I add Spirulina and Brewer’s Yeast too!

Supportive treatments – Adjuncts

Milk thistle is a good supplement for liver cleansing and support.
Add a beetroot juice 2-3 times a week, if you’re not diabetic can also be beneficial

When there is a parasite infection, most likely there are yeasts as well.  Adding more diatomaceous earth to your detox program takes you a long way.   I suggest this be taken with the pysillium husks at night.

Here are some other things you can do during this cleanse to really throw the bad bugs out….

Jalapeno
This natural parasite cleanse recipe has existed for years and years even before some of the well known medicines today were even invented.  The spicy jalapeno pepper is a great ingredient for a parasite cleanse recipe simply because it’s hot – yes, literally hot.  Now while this may not be favored by some people, the heat coming from jalapeno peppers is something that makes those spiteful parasites uncomfortable, forcing them to vacate your intestines.  It is also wonderful for the cardiovascular system and encourages Agni (the digestive fire)

When digested, the substance found in jalapeno peppers work by killing any kind of bacteria and parasites that have taken residence in your intestinal tracts.

To create your parasite cleanse recipe, simply chop 2-3 pieces of jalapeno peppers into little pieces.  For those who cannot tolerate the spicy effect of these potent tiny peppers, you can mix it with anything that has high fat content to tone down the burning effect you get.

For example, you can create a mixture of chopped jalapeno peppers and a few tablespoons of mashed avocado.  You can also make use of yogurt sprinkled with chopped jalapeno peppers.  Either way, those potent peppers will get those parasites out of your system in no time!

Ginger/Lemon Tea
Don’t you just love the combination of lemon and ginger on your sore-throat days?  This duo is an excellent remedy for curing illnesses such as colds and sore throats.  What else can this powerful duo do?  Well, they are also a perfect pair for a parasite cleanse recipe.

Ginger and lemon are high in antioxidant and antibacterial properties that fight against a variety of parasites that reside in your intestines.  Usually, honey is added to ginger and lemon to complete your treatment for the common cold; however, for a parasite cleanse recipe, you can omit the honey and just add a dash of cayenne pepper instead.

Your recipe can be accomplished by peeling and slicing the ginger into thin strips.  When done, add the ginger to a teapot of hot water and leave it there for about 10 minutes or so.  You can leave it longer if you want to maximize the flavor you can get from the ginger.  Add 2-3 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice and a small amount of cayenne pepper.  Drink this on a daily basis to cure your common cold and kill those parasites.

Cucumber Cleanse
This recipe is perfect to start your day and keep you energized throughout the rest of the day.  Moreover, this recipe is a combination of amazing natural ingredients that are powerful and safe parasite cleansers.  Cucumber, green apple, lemon, and cilantro are packed with nutrients that keep you and your intestines in a clean and healthy state.

Prepare your parasite cleanse recipe by peeling 1 whole cucumber, 1 green apple, and half a lemon.  Throw them in your blender and add a handful of cilantro to balance the flavor.  The apple helps break toxins down, the cucumber helps in waste and parasite removal, cilantro is a good source of antioxidants, and the lemon helps complete your recipe.

Dilute the blended ingredients with equal parts of water.  Mix well and drink up to get you up and running while you get rid of those parasites within.

Let’s Get rid of the bad guys and increase the good guys!!!!

Email or contact me if you are interested in the protocol!

This cleanse is aimed at the following parasites:

  • Protozoa are single-celled microorganisms that may not be visible to the naked eye. The most common protozoans that infect a human body are: Giardia intestinalis, entaboeba hystolytica, cyclospora cayetanenensis, cryptosporidium spp, and blastocystis hominis. The disorders caused by these parasites are often named after them.
  • Helminths are larger and typically big enough and can be seen with the human eye in their adult stage. The most common helminths that inhabit the human gut, briefly, are:
  • Roundworms: This parasite can lay up to over 200,000 eggs a day and can grow up to 15 feet long. Because of their size, this type of parasite can cause blockages in the intestinal tract, penetrate the intestinal wall, cause hemorrhages, appendicitis, peritonitis, abscesses in the liver and pancreatitis.
  • Hookworms: The larvae of this parasite can penetrate the skin. Young worms can burrow through intestinal wall and feed on your blood, causing iron deficiency and other nutrient deficiencies. Adult hookworms can sap the host’s strength and energy and destroy their overall wellbeing.
  • Tapeworms: This parasite can grow up to 35 feet long and live more than 10 years inside a person’s intestines. They can lay up to one million eggs per day!
  • Pinworms: A female pinworm often crawls out of the anus and lays about 15,000 eggs a day. The eggs can survive outside the body and once airborne, they can survive for about two days in its surrounding. Hosts may often experience itchiness in the anus or vagina, suffer from digestive disorders, insomnia and irritability.
  • Whipworms: This 1-2 inches long worm can penetrate the intestinal wall and cause bacterial infections, blood in stools, pain in lower abdomen, rectal prolapse, anemia and hemorrhages.
  • Flatworms: Flatworms (a.k.a. fluke) can grow up to 3 inches long. They deplete nutrients from an organ, and then move on to other organs in the body via the blood stream and lymphatic system. They can cause severe diseases in the gastrointestinal tract, lungs, bladder, liver and the blood.

Sleep, Yes Sleep…Tea

“A good laugh and a long sleep are the two best cures for anything.” Irish Proverb. 2.

Sleep is supposed to be effortless.  I would like you to sleep, which does not happen for some!  Let’s enter into sleep, that silent, special act that should take us away from our waking worlds into waves a wandering forests, watery suns of otherness.   

 We are active all day and at the end we are supposed to lie down and sleep…effortlessly!  For many who can’t sleep, it is their mind that keeps them awake. Often for the sleepless, they tell themselves “oh, I usually can’t sleep anyway” or “ahh man, every time I drink coffee after 6 I can’t sleep” or as soon as you see your bed you think “great, another sleepless grumpy night, here I come…” Many of us even schedule our lives around having insomnia.    Sleep is precious!  We all need it!

We spend approximately 33% of our lives asleep and often don’t think about it until we can’t sleep.  Sleep as an essential component of a healthy lifestyle and needs to operates, as do many things, in balance. Sleeping and wakefulness must complement one another: when one is compromised, so is the other. Contemporary science continues to debate why we sleep, and which bodily processes are promoted by rest, but the importance of sleep for a healthy lifestyle has never been in doubt. Lack of sleep produces an array of consequences including higher stress, decreased concentration, and increased mistakes, to name a few.  Sleep isn’t just for returning your energy.  Sleep is a critical time for overall body healing, regulation, and restoration.

There is a degree of collapse in sleep takes place that somehow suspends very many body and mind functions; This collapse may allow the Spirit to be present to itself.  This enables our bodies to replenish, recover and perform better with adequate sleep. We look better, feel better and make better decisions. . But, sometime’s that’s easier said than done; especially during stressful times.  But, the damage from sleep deprivation is cumulative. Over a prolonged period of inadequate sleep,  conditions can become irreversible and dis-ease happens.  Very simply, when we’ve had a good, full night of sleep, we are higher beings.  It is perhaps one of the most important aspects of health.

FROM MY GARDEN I have created this tea blend to help my clients.  It is an alchemy of herbs that hold relaxation properties the sooth and center the mind, body and nervous system.   I have also added two very special herbs that were used by indigenous for dreaming medicine the Mexican Tarragon and the African Dreaming Plant).   Both of these special plants have been carefully and gently cared for over the last 2 years to bring them to harvest.    Below are the full ingredients rendered and compounded and made into a gelatin offering.    One tub is about 1 months worth of night time tea!    

Opening the sleep dreams and harnessing a deep sleep….my own personal results thus far….rejuvenation, clarity and peace!

Foods to Support Chelation

Cilantro Chelation Pesto

(eat this every day during your cleanse…and as much as you can/want) This would also be good to add to your diet a couple times a year as a maintenance.

8 cloves garlic (or more if you like)
1/3 cup Brazil nuts (selenium)
1/3 cup sunflower seeds (cysteine)
1/3 cup pumpkin seeds (zinc, magnesium)
2 cups packed fresh cilantro (vitamin A)
1 tbsp coriander seeds
4 tablespoons lemon juice (vitamin C)
2 tsp turmeric
¼ cup of dandelion leaves
2 tbsp organic extra virgin olive oil
2 tsp dulse powder [or kelp powder/granules]
1 tbsp Spirulina
2/3 cup flaxseed oil or Sancha Inchi Oil
Sea salt or my mineral salt, pepper to taste

1. Process the cilantro, garlic, nuts, seeds, leaves, dulse, olive oil and lemon juice in a blender until finely minced.
2. Then add flax oil and a pinch of sea salt and pepper and blend on low speed (do not heat flax oil) until the mixture is blended into a paste.
3. Store in the fridge, in dark glass jars if possible. *This pesto freezes well, so purchase cilantro in season and fill enough jars to last throughout the year. The cilantro will begin to get dark green/brown in 4-5 days, so if you want to keep it looking super fresh, then just keep a small supply in the fridge and freeze the rest to use as needed. Cilantro has been shown to chelate toxic metals from our bodies in a relatively short period of time. Combined with the benefits of the other ingredients, this recipe is a powerful tissue cleanser providing you with other minerals

I make this for my clients. A large container is $15

Chelation Support Soup (good for LIVER AND KIDNEYS)

Place one quarts of stock (bone broth, chicken stock or both) and one quart of potato skin broth(cooked skinds in water) in a medium-sized pot. Turn the heat on to bring the soup stock to a boil. While waiting for the soup to heat, add:

• Mineral Salt…2 tsp (Kelp, Nettle, Sesame Seeds and a natural sea salt…I make this for clients $7 a bag)
• ½ tsp cayenne (high heat if possible– 90,000 – 145,000 HU, Immediately feeds the cardiovascular system, alkalizes the body, and stimulates circulation.
• Local Red Chili Pepper – 1/8 tsp red chili pepper (a few dashes)- dried peppers are fine.
• Turmeric – 1/8 tsp of friend turmeric (a few dashes) or 1 inch of fresh chopped finely
• Oregano – 1 Tsp of fresh oregano (or 1/8 tsp of dried)
• Ginger – 8 slices of ginger (about an inch). For a “bigger ginger kick”, one can boil the ginger separately in a small amount of water in another sauce pan for about 20 minutes, then add the ginger and ginger tea to the soup stock (this should probably only be done for those well-adjusted to ginger use).
• Thyme – One to three tablespoonful of finely and freshly chopped Thyme (optional but recommended).
• Rosemary – One to three tablespoonful of finely chopped fresh rosemary.

Bring all of the above ingredients to a boil. Allow to boil for 30 seconds to a minute. Remove the pot from heat, and allow the soup to set for about two minutes. Next, add the following pre-prepared raw ingredients to the soup:

• ¼ cup chopped cilantro – Finely chop the cilantro.
• The juice of 3-6 lemons – If the lemons are small, and you hand squeeze the lemons, use six. If you use a juicer, use less lemons. If the lemons are large, and you use a juicer, use only three. If hand squeezing, use four large lemons.
• 3/4 cup first cold pressed olive oil or coconut oil
• 2-3 full bulbs/cloves of extremely finely chopped garlic as a MINIMUM.

Add all above ingredients and let sit for 7-10 minutes (covered). Remove the ginger root).
You can store this soup in the fridge for up to 5 days or freeze indefinitely. It actually gets yummier! Ingredients may be added to the original soup recipe to suit, provided that they add no digestive burden. Please note that while it seems that some of the ingredients are excessive, each balances the other perfectly to deliver the much-needed nutrients that the body so desperately needs.

Alternate Recipe For those that enjoy the occasional cleansing soup for enjoyment, the following ingredients can easily be added: Chopped Celery, Chopped Onions, Chopped Mushrooms

Helicobacter Plyori

Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is a very common bacteria.  In my work, I see signs and symptoms of it alot.   It is estimated that 50% or more of the world’s population are infected with this bacteria and most people don’t know it.  This means they are asymptomatic.   This critter grows in the stomach and digestive tract

CHARACTERISTICS

“Helico” means “spiral”. The bacteria is spiral-shaped and they drill into your stomach lining, and hide in the mucus where your immune cells cannot reach them. They can live in the harsh acidic environment of the stomach by producing an enzyme called urease to neutralize stomach acids in order to protect themselves, thus creating an issue of low stomach acid.   This often results in many digestive issues including ulcers.   When the HCl in the stomach is low, it reduces the Intrisic Factor causing a mal-absorption of Iron, B12 and the fat soluble vitamins.   Also, in order to live, Plyori use up enzymes and nutrition in your body, and at the same time dumping their wastes and toxins into your system. They cause damage to your cells and mitochondria that result in chronic fatigue and inflammation.

SYMPTOMS 

As shared above, some people are asymptomatic when infect with H. pylori and may or may not have symptoms. But, if you have these symptoms, it may be best to test for this and other bacteria or parasites:

  1. Malnutrition that leads to deficiencies
  2. Cell injury and inflammation
  3. Fatigue/Anemia
  4. Frequent belching and flatulence
  5. Gas and bloating
  6. Abdominal pain IBS-Diarrhea
  7. Acid reflux Heart Burn
  8. Nausea
  9. Dark stools
  10. Stomach or peptic ulcers – Gastritis
  11. Bad breath
  12. Asthma
  13. Skin problems, such as acne rosacea

HOW DO YOU GET DIAGNOSED FOR H. PYLORI INFECTION?

There are three tests:

  1. Breath Test:  It is an effective test with over 90% accuracy, because this organism emits urease that can be detected in the breath. The infected individual will be asked to swallow a capsule containing urea (nitrogen and carbon) that your body produce naturally. In the presence of H. pylori, the urea will break up into nitrogen and carbon as carbon dioxide.This test requires a 6-hour fast.
  2. Endoscopy: An endoscopy is performed to collect specimens from the stomach and duodenum. Diagnosis is then made by examining them under the microscope in a lab.
  3. Stool Test: A stool specimen is collected from the infected individual to detect the infection. This test is called the Helicobacter pylori Stool Antigen (HpSA) .  I find this test often gives a negative positive.

A medical doctor will prescribe for two to six weeks (sometimes three types)  If you also have acid reflux caused by the bacteria, proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) may also be prescribed  Studies show that as many as 20% patients will have recurring infections .

I believe that Nature has provided everything you need to completely eradicate H. pylori naturally. Follow this two-step natural treatment that works without any adverse effects, and support with natural antibiotic foods.  Yes, the natural way has worked.   Each person might be slightly different..and require a different set of protocols, but it does work.

Here is what I usually recommend as an overall general protocol:

Step 1: Gastrointestinal Cleanse
Always start with a gastrointestinal cleanse to clean out the tract. We understand that H. pylori drill into your stomach and intestinal lining; they hide and are “protected” by mucus so that your immune cells cannot get at them. A gastrointestinal cleanse by way of drinking high fiber works like a broom to clean out the intestinal tract and expose these bacteria.   Always include Restistant Starches (RS) and Probiotics to strengthen the digestive.

Step 2: Parasite Cleanse
A parasite cleanse will completely kill all parasites, bacteria, yeasts and fungus.  However, everyone is different.

In addition when someone is  H. pylori positive there is a high likelihood that there are other harmful microbes and a possibility of SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth). Doing a gut cleanse exposes these bad guys.   Once the bacteria are exposed, the antibacterials that you ingest will be able to make contact with the bacteria to completely strip them off your intestinal wall lining.  I always recommend herbs  in very low and safe dosages to gradually kill the harmful microbes and sometimes it takes time. Taking more does not mean better! Killing too much of the bacteria may cause a Herxheimer (die-off) reaction where the huge amount of microbes that die will produce more toxins than your liver can handle.  This is one mistake many people make.  Therefore, it is important to take the dosage as suggested and have patience.

While doing a gastrointestinal and parasite cleanse, you may add any of these foods for good measure. Not only do they help get rid of H. pylori, they also kill other harmful microbes such as parasites, yeasts and fungi, and contribute to healing of the gastric naturally, without any side effects.

Broccoli Sprouts Kill H. Pylori Bacterial Infection
A study published in the April 2009 edition of the journal Cancer Prevention Research found that daily consumption of broccoli sprouts inhibits the growth of Helicobacter pylori and reduces the risk of gastritis in individuals infected with the bacteria.  The study discovered that sulforaphane is a potent, natural antibiotic that effectively eradicate H. pylori. Baby broccoli, or broccoli sprouts, are preferred due to their much higher concentration of sulforaphane than mature heads of broccoli. The precursor of sulforaphane—glucoraphanin—is present in many raw (uncooked) cruciferous plants. It is hydrolyzed by an enzyme that is present in the human gut. The process begins as soon as the vegetable is chewed or processed (in this case, juiced or blended), making sulforaphane easily available as it travels through the gastrointestinal system.

Dose:: 2.5 ounces (70 grams) a day for two months.  Either just eat the sprouts or  put that much broccoli sprouts in a blender and pour some very warm water and soak for about 10 minutes. This will increase the bioavailability of sulforaphane to get the most out of them. Blend it into a smoothie and drink. You may add a little sea salt for taste, if desired.

If you are following the above 2-step protocol, it will suffice to eat/drink this broccoli sprout smoothie for 7-14 days from the start of the parasite cleanse.

Green Cabbage
If you cannot get baby broccoli, try this green cabbage juice that has a high content of sulforaphane. Cabbage juice has been reported to be beneficial for curing peptic ulcer and acid reflux.

Pineapple and Turmeric
Here is a great gut shot that will help reduce inflammation and calm the digestive as well as innoculate with good guy bacteria

I have personally recommended this juice to my clients who have ulcers and acid reflux. Every one of them who drank the juice for up to 14 days had found the juice to provide tremendous relief and ultimately healed from gastrointestinal issues.

Six important Additions for the Cleanse

Probiotics
I have made one from my garden (HERE)

Brussels sprouts is another cruciferous vegetable that has been reported to be just as effective in eradicating H. pylori infestation. Sprouts always contain nutrients at their peak as they are growing. Just as broccoli sprouts, there is a high chance that this cute vegetable that looks like baby cabbage, is effective for fighting the bacteria. Add it in your diet and juice routine.

Garlic is a well-known anti-microbial and has been reported to be effective for at least 13 known infections, including H. pylori.

Coconut oil is one of the best sources of lauric and caprylic acid. Studies show that when these acids come into contact with yeast and parasites, they are able to break down the microbes’ cell membranes, preventing the harmful microbes from growing and multiplying.

Manuka honey has 13 living lactic acids that are unique properties that have been reported to eradicate more than 250 clinical strains of bacteria, including certain antibiotic-resistant varieties. It has superior antiseptic qualities that are far superior to other types of honey when it comes to killing of bacteria.

Cranberry and blueberry juices have long been used for stopping urinary tract infections. Studies show that they are uniquely able to strip bacteria off the bladder wall. It seems promising that these juices are able to prevent the H. pylori bacteria from getting a foothold even in the gut wall lining.

Kefir is a probiotic-rich drink that should be included in your diet, if you are fighting a bacterial infection. It contains many strains of probiotics that are superior to yogurt’s. It is also a prebiotic, thus helps to repopulate your gut flora to help strengthen your immune system to fight against an infection. Kefir is suitable to be consumed even by individuals who are lactose-intolerant.

Colloidal silver—although it is technically not a food, colloidal silver is one of the best things that kill bacteria and parasites upon contact. It can be taken sublingually for it to work most effectively. Put two droppersful of colloidal silver under the tongue and hold for about 30 seconds, then swallow. Do this two or three times a day alongside the parasite cleanse protocol.  Sometimes I add this into the parasite protocol.

There are many more natural foods that are beneficial antibiotics that can be added to your diet, when fighting a bacterial infection. More importantly, avoid foods that feed the harmful bacteria, such as processed foods, sugar, harmful fats, caffeine, alcohol and low-fiber foods.

People with stress, anxieties, lack of sleep and staying up late nights are showing lower immunity to fight against bacterial infections. If you are one of them, learn to manage your stress, eat right and try this sleep remedy to improve your immune system.   If you have been infected by this spiral digging bad guy for a long time, it might take some patience.   But, at the other end, it feels great!

I create natural protocols for clients if you want some assistance!

Be well!!

This sauerkraut is full of health benefits. The turmeric and ginger make it a powerful anti-inflammatory.  Other benefits include…

  • Probiotic – fermented foods like this sauerkraut contain more probiotics than a probiotic pill and research has shown that the good bacteria are more likely to survive the digestive system then ones from a pill.
  • Enzymes- the enzymes in fermented foods help assist in breaking down food, making meals easier for your body to digest.
  • Fiber – sauerkraut is rich in fiber and feeds the friendly bacteria in your gut, moves food though your digestive tract and makes you regular (poo).
  • Relieves diarrhea and constipation  – the friendly bacteria in fermented foods balance the inner ecosystem in the digestive track.
  • It also relieves gas, heartburn and improves mood and mental health.

I am really proud of this recipe. It tastes great and packs a super punch of health benefits. You have to try this kraut

INGREDIENTS
1 head of cabbage (shredded)
½ pineapple (chopped)
1 tbsp ground turmeric (don’t forget to add a pinch of black pepper)
1 tbsp fresh ginger (grated)
1 tbsp sea salt
Brine:
1 tbsp Sea Salt
1 tbsp Raw Apple Cider Vinegar
4 cups purified water
Other Tools:
2 Quart Size  Jars or 1 half gallon mason jar

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Shred the cabbage in a food processor, mandolin or chop with a knife. Add it to a big bowl.
  2. Chop the pineapple into small chunks and add it to the bowl with the cabbage.
  3. Add in the grated ginger and sea salt to the bowl.
  4. Massage the cabbage mixture with your hands for 5 minutes or until it starts to break down and become soft.
    Let it sit for 15 minutes in the bowl.
  5. After the 15 minutes, the cabbage will become very soft and wet. If you squeeze it now, juice will come out.
  6. Add the turmeric (pepper)  to the cabbage. You can either mix it with your hands or a spoon. The turmeric could stain your hands and fingernails orange so you may want to use a spoon.  I think hands (clean of course) are the best way.
  7. Pack the cabbage halfway into the mason jars if you are using two or halfway into the large mason jar if you are using one.
    Now we are going to make the brine and add it to the jars for the gut shots.
  8. Make the brine by combining 1 cup of hot water with the sea salt. Once the sea salt dissolves add the remaining water and the apple cider vinegar.
  9. Pour the brine into the mason jars, leaving about an inch from the top.
  10. Stir the brine and cabbage together in the jar so it’s all combined. Place a lid on the jar loosely so gas can escape as fermentation takes place.
    Set on the counter for 4-7 days in a cool, shaded place.
  11. During fermentation the sauerkraut will bubble a little and become cloudy. If scum appears, remove it with a spoon.
    Every day or two, shake the mason jar up so the cabbage submerges under the brine and doesn’t develop mold.

Place in the fridge and serve cold. These can be frozen and made into ice-gut-shots

Gut Shots: The extra brine from the sauerkraut is the gut shots. Pour the extra brine into shot glasses and don’t forget to share with friends and drink to your health. Cheers!
NOTES
The sauerkraut could bubble over and out of the jar. To avoid a mess, place the jar on a plate or in a bowl.

Coffee Enema

Coffee enema is done to aid in the elimination of toxic waste material from the body. The coffee enema is very stimulating to the liver and is the greatest aid in elimination of the liver’s toxic wastes.  It also has beneficial effects in cleaning the colon.  A coffee enema is a type of natural “colon cleanse” that involves injecting coffee and water into the rectum and colon. Coffee enemas have been used since the 1800’s to help fight: cancer, parasites, effects of overdoses, bloating and constipation, liver dysfunction, Candida virus IBS and other digestive disorders.

Coffee is an excellent solvent for encrusted waste accumulated along the walls of the colon. The caffeine also directly stimulates the peristaltic muscle to contract more powerfully and loosen such deposits, which are occasionally visible as hard, black material and “ropes” of mucus. Gradually, as the protein metabolism of the body improves, the muscle tone of the bowel becomes normal and thorough evacuation is possible without the aid of the enema.

There is often some puzzlement as to how a coffee enema will detox the liver if it is held only in the sigmoid colon. Coffee enemas are low volume and not intended to reach high into the bowels. When a coffee enema is administered, the caffeine is absorbed into the enterohepatic system, which connects the liver with the colon. This stimulates the liver, putting the liver into detoxification hyper drive and causing the bile ducts to flush out bile. The caffeine in the enema, stimulates the liver into producing glutathione-S-transferase – this enzyme clears the detoxification pathways of the liver.

Essentially, the coffee enemas help the liver perform a task for which it was not designed — that of elimination in 1 or 2 years the accumulated wastes from many years of living in ignorance of the laws of nature.

At first, most people dislike enemas and have psychological barriers against them. I have observed, however, that the persons most opposed to enemas soon reverse their prejudices and become the most avid supporters of them! In many cases, the enema relieves distress and gives a sense of well being and cleanliness never before experienced.

The proper removal of toxins and debris from the colon is absolutely essential in all conditions of disease and ill health.It is most desirable to take the coffee enema early in the morning and it may be repeated again in early afternoon and/or evening, depending upon the toxic condition of the body. However, enemas using coffee in the afternoon or evening may interfere with sound sleep.

How To Make A Coffee Enema

Just before bedtime each day, make a pot of coffee (1 quart). It is best to arise early enough each morning to allow time to take the enema in a relaxed, unhurried state. The coffee must be regular, non-instant, non-decaffeinated coffee and organic.   It must NOT be prepared  Aluminum or Teflon.   Use 3 to 4 tablespoons of ground coffee to 1 quart of distilled and pure water.   DO not use chlorinated or fluoridated water..

NOTE: If a coffee enema makes a person jittery, shaky, nervous, nauseated, or light-headed, the coffee solution is too strong. The amount of coffee can be adjusted from 1 teaspoon to 4 tablespoons per quart of water as tolerance level permits.

The high, retention coffee enema should consist of 1 quart of coffee, held for 15 minutes.   Upon rising each morning plug in the coffeepot for a few seconds to bring coffee to body temperature; unplug and take the morning coffee enema.

How to do the enema

Before the enema do some form of mild exercise if possible, such as walking briskly.   It is good to have a normal bowel movement. The enema is much more effective if the colon has been evacuated. One should not become disturbed, however, if there are no regular bowel movements. When no normal bowel movements are forthcoming, the enema cleans the colon adequately.

In the morning take 2 tbsp Psylliuum Husks, or 2 tablespoons.  This helps with the sweeping process after the enema.

Warm the coffee to body temperature.  Place 1 quart of coffee in your enema bag or bucket.  Place the enema tip at the end of the colon tube is usually  12 to 20 inches into the rectum.  Next, allow the coffee to flow to the end of the colon tube, thus eliminating any air in the tube.

The colon tube can be lubricated with natural creamery butter, Vitamin E cream or other lubricant that doesn’t contain additives or chemicals.

Insert the tube 12 to 20 inches into the rectum, if possible. This should be done slowly, in a rotating motion that helps to keep the tube from “kinking up” inside the colon.

The enema bag should not be over 36 inches higher than the rectum. If it is placed too high, the coffee runs into the colon too fast and under too much pressure, causing discomfort.

There are several positions that can be used while inserting the colon tube. Squatting is one. There is also the knee-chest method, with chest and knees on the floor and buttocks in the highest position possible. Most people, however, find it easiest to lie on the left side until the solution is out of the bag or bucket. The enema should never be taken while sitting on the toilet or standing.

Some people’s colons have kinks or turns in them that may prevent the tube from being inserted even 18 inches. Often, if a little bit of the solution is allowed to flow into the colon as the tube is being inserted, one may comfortably get past these kinks. If a kink bends the tube too much and stops the flow of liquid, then the tube can be inserted only as far as it will go, still allowing the liquid to flow freely.

Sometimes, if one hits a kink that stops the flow of the liquid completely, the tube can be pulled out slowly just to the point where the solution is felt flowing again. Frequently, the tube can be pushed back in, past the turn that previously stopped the liquid.  The tube should never be forced when discomfort occurs.

After the flow of the solution is completed, one may remove the colon tube, although it isn’t necessary to do so. Regardless of the position used up to this point, one should now lie on the left side for at least 5 minutes, then on the back for another 5 minutes, then on the right side for at least 5 minutes.

Those who have excessive gas may leave the tube in the colon with the hose clamp open. This allows gas to escape through the enema container. Frequently, the coffee will go in and out of the enema bag or bucket until the gas is relieved.

After the enema is retained for 15 minutes or longer, it may be expelled.

One is now ready for the rest of his daily routine clean and refreshed!

Helpful Hints

If you find you have a lot of gas and it is difficult to retain the enema, try putting 2 tablespoons of blackstrap molasses into your coffee solution.

If you get a sudden gas bubble causing an urge to expel the solution, breathe very fast through your nose using your abdominal muscles like a bellows. This usually helps the colon wall break up the gas bubble.

If you find that a little coffee leaks out, place an old towel under your buttocks.
