Loving your Gut - Repairing Intestinal Glyphosate Damage

First - about our Challenged and Often Maligned Gut Bacteria:

Glysophates, pesticides, herbicides and fungicides (and God knows what else we don’t know about) are a permanent addition to our daily food, water and air consumption, that the powers-that-be allow / approve AND done with “scientific backing”. These toxic poisons (would you add a few drops to your drinking water?) and their multitudinous ingredients are real crowd manipulation (not tested by the accepted double-blind cross-over and reproducable and repeatable methods). They are bio-cides. If these poisons kill bugs or weevils in nature, will they just smile and sooth us in our stomach and intestines?

If we stop consuming the above poisons, we may regain the normalacy we may not have know we had even lost and begin some solid repair. That includes repairing our intestines - large and small - a vast surface. The benefits to doing this are many and unique to each of us (including less bloating and gas, less mood swings, less sleep disorders, less pain and maybe even some weight loss, hormone rebalancing and improved skin conditions, just to mention a few). So short term improvements can be brought to categorically denied damage we know we have.

Long term damage is still an open question (because of lack of good science) and negative changes may take longer to manifest. I’m thinking of the studies done on the generations that followed the survivors of the adults of the Hunger Winter in the Northern part of the Netherlands - the Dutch after WWII (that's me and my tribe!) that causes problems of curious ill health in the second and third generations and maybe onwards (which led me to write this).

“Secret Ingredients” is a good film to watch when family members need convincing. 

The patent description for Monsanto's glysophate calls it an antibiotic. I happen to value my personal bacteria greatly. Not only have we been erroneously conditioned to view bacteria with great suspicion (killing them is good for pharmaceutical sales and great for furnishing explanations for conditions for which medicine does not have answers ) but we are also now killing our bacteria unwittingly, unknowingly, daily. Much more on this as well as a small look at Dr Seneff's work at an on-going page at http://www.pacificholistic.com/glyphosate.

We have trillions of cells in our bodies and if we multiply that number by 1000 then we have the number of bacteria in our bodies! If bacteria were so evil, none of us would be here and alive. And if it's supposedly about killing just the 'bad ones', then why oblierate them all? These bacteria have been proven to be able to share DNA between each other - they can actually change and morph in order to go out and do their repair work (a good thing, obviously, or else we's be wiped out as a species). Unlike parasites, they are in such insanely high volumes in our bodies to always help create that upward healing spiral. 

Imbalances - be they created by us due to emotional shocks and physical accidents and unwanted chemicals - all cause tissue trauma - in organs, organelles, etc - and prompt the need for tissue and organ repair - and this healing always includes the important work of very smartly co-ordinated bacteria, along with white cells and a tad of occasional fluid. Bacterial presence is crucial (and hence bacteria are actually condemned... like blaming the first-responders for the accidents they respond to... 
If, for example, I have a very sore ear that is turning into an ear infection, it is likely that I have just resolved something that I had previoulsly found difficult or downright awful or ‘attacking / threatening’ to hear. That piece of conversation / information or whatever I had to hear or I had to listen to, earlier, may have occurred days, months or even years before. This ear ‘infection’, when the ear tissue is finally healing, only happens when the attack I experienced (totally subjective) is understood, resolved or no longer at play and has no more emotional energy for me.
Big emotional attacks have potential to be a big messy healing event, when healing (in this case a stuffy ear, congested sinus, runny eye, and lots of Kleenex for blowing one’s nose... as the problem can spread a bit to other parts of the pharyngeal complex)! A small-ish attack or highly unpleasant event may mean a small discomfort of short duration and merely a plugged ear.

With either small or large issues, anti-biotics would have stopped the messy congestion and plugged up ear and ALSO would have stopped the healing in it’s tracks and an unnatural healing would have occurred of the tissues in the ear. Infact some inner ear areas can have develope calcification when there are NO bacteria present during the healing phase. The other end result is that there would be NO OTHER bacteria left anywhere else in our body, either nor in the gut - all bacteria are eradicated because of the ones causing the healing discomfort in the ear - and none are left for other healing expeditions that may have been going unbeknownst to us and on a low level, nor will there be any at the ready for the immediate future and NONE for the bacteria’s secondary task - assisting digestion in the intestines (their home base). There are alternatives that give relief that do NOT have the 'wipe-out' affect of anti-biotics - and more on that in another segment.
But I digress…

Keeping the bacteria in our gut happy is the ultimate health focus that pays off. And with the use of anti-biotics religated to only life-saving situations (such as a possible burst appendix or diverticuolus, sepsis, etc, as an example) we can look at what else causes the destruction of our fine multi-tasking gut bacteria.

Some alternative health theories mimick the mainstream's thoughts on bacterial suspicions. I see clients who would NEVER think of using prescription anti-biotics but then go crazy on colloidal silver or oil of oregano. Both of these fine substances have their places - emergency kits. And they, too, kill bacteria. After gargling them, swallowing them, the rest is history. These two substances are supposed to kill bacteria - and they do. ONCE THEY ARE DONE DOING THEIR WORK IN THE MOUTH OR THROAT, THEY CONTINUE ON THROUGH THE ESOPHAGUS, STOMACH AND INTESTINES AND KILL EVERY SELF-RESPECTING BACTERIUM THERE, TOO, UNTIL THEY RUN OUT OF STEAM.

It takes about three months to re-populate the small and large intestines with probiotics - such as with Natren's Triple Health - to get the bacterial population back up and running. Probiotics need to be top quaity and refrigerated (not bought online - no matter how convincing the rhetoric about why not... ). 
Prebiotics are a fine treat for the newly arrived probiotic bacteria. The confusion is interesting. A PREBIOTIC is a food that has had the work of bacteria on it - fermented food and drinks, for example. Once you have some probiotics back in the intestines, then the prebiotics help the new bacteria procreate and multiply. You can also indulge in Brie and Gouda and foods rich in insoluable fibre, as well as the usual kefir and yoghurt and sauerkraut, etc. These are best when homemade with real bacteria. And don't under-estimate kissing! (I am assuming the person you are kissing hasn't just had a dose of anti-biotics).
Some GPs offer prescriptions for probiotics called VSL3 - and these do absolutely nothing for the patient. The bacteria are killed before leaving the manufacturer and therefore in-effective yet expensive (more of that 'bacteria are bad' mentality).

For sad but very real reasons, some people have had to endure multiple doses of anti-biotics to the point that the intestinal tract is so compromised that commercial top-quality probiotics cannot get a good start or get their house in order. For these folks the solution of fecal implants is a God-send. And no more years of waiting and then testing for C-difficile (... still looking for a bad bacterial culprit!). A new clinic in Duncan does the testing, the education and the implants and the follow-up. And lots of good feed-back. https://taymount.com - Slovakia, Bahamas and Duncan BC! Lucky BC!

Glyphosate damage is the other huge intestinal tract issue AND leads to Mineral Deficiency.

Glyphosate is a chelator. It grabs metals and minerals. It does this starting  from when the seed is planted to sprouting and then maturing, all the way through to harvesting. The many minerals we expect the root structures of plants to pull out of the earth for our nutrition are pulled out of the way by glyphosates. Then the grabbing continues - in our gut. As the toxins are in our intestines they will grab more minerals - manganese, magnesium, cobalt, selenium, vanadium - all of these minerals and trace minerals are important co-factors. They are part of many, if not all, the intricate chemical pathways in our bodies. You can eat a lot of food yet be starved of minerals. (Demineralization is now the co-culprit for many ailments - from sleep disorders and mood disorders to diseases and unusual conditions.) 

Even ‘regular’ non-organic livestock suffers from mineral deficiencies - their food is atrocious. And they are also actually fed pesticides as a fattener and the minerals are withdrawn while they digest the pathetic bit of nutrition they do get. Their metabolic pathways aren’t working either. Our pets are not fed well, and they are now in much worse shape than previous generations of pets or their owners (and that says a lot!). The blood and feces levels of glysophates are measured in numerous studies on pets by vets (not the pet food industry!).

The glyphosates also destroys the ATP cycle - the complex chemical process that makes out energy inside the mitochondria within each cell of the thirty trillion cells of our body - so thats hundreds of times in thirty trillion little factories every second that are desperately needy for their energy basic materials - minerals and trace minerals… so when the lack effects just the making of one hormone, as an example, we are miserable and tired and cranky and we turn to sweets for a quick little energy boost to bring us to an approach to normal (not even remotely correcting the problem - but an understandable band-aid).

So obviously we want to eat only organic to get away from eating poisons. It’s in the air and also in our water. So even if Monsanto stopped dead in it’s tracks and all new toxins were outlawed… and all food became hyper-organic nad clean - then the threat and damage would be much less and then maybe just enough for our tough bodies to cope and filter - for this generation and maybe the next one, too. We give our bodies little credit - so much of the destruction is under-the-radar, insipid and unseen - stealthfully accumulated over time - and yet we soldier on bravely!

Our precious digestive enzymes were seen to be damaged by the glyphosates, too, in recent research! It's not enough that all prescription drugs affect the pancreas in some manner, where the enzymes are produced!

And then the tissue of the villa - the sensitive and vulnerable fingers that line the small intestine’s 20 feet and handle the absorption of nutrition. These miraculous structures give us our whole super-surface. Eventually the mucous (which we can make instantaneously) can’t protect all gut surfaces all of the time from abuse and then the cells’ surface becomes inflamed - and then again less and less workable and then the body needs to send out the repair crews to heal it's own gut walls - it's own habitat when not fixing other tissue elsewhere. The crew usually includes white cells that can do their best to heal this tissue, until the next onslaught. 

Although these cells are in us to do this kind of repair work, there are two problems with this… and one is that we need to keep our white cell repair crews to work on important things that can not be avoided. The other is that we do not want to excerbate the ridicuous notion of auto-immune disease when the body is, in actuality, trying to heal itself.. and certainly is NOT attacking itself. Healing is always a combination of white cells, bacteria (just the right ones) and occasionally a mini-tad of fungus (also gets a bad name when we create imbalances) and some extra fluids to wash away the bacteria and white cells that die on the job for us! (Real kamikaze heroes in my view). 

People sometimes switch to a very special diet that produces weightloss results - such as KETO or Atkins… and people often feel better on these diets, over and above feeling proud about their weight loss. Often the real take-away is moving a lot of glyphosated foods off the plate - especially grains (insane amounts of glyphosates in the outer husks/hulls of wheat in North America - infact wheat is the worst purpetrator). These dietary changes often reduce the accumulated and stored / absorbed crap and brings improvements directly and adds to the 'feel-good' affect. 

Monsanto is not going away - and as the company will continue to cover up their private and rigged research and puny public information - and as the on-going court appeals and reviews and new cases against Monsanto will be many and the delays out of this world, the insanely huge payouts can be a long time coming and so also the company's demise - so we are stuck with them and their products and far reaching tentacles - you have to wonder how their salespeople can sleep at night? For now we’ll just have to be happy that the share price of the parent company, Bayer, dropped and pension funds will have to be a bit more careful explaining with investing in this company. We, the consumer, will just need to be hyper-careful and geeky-picky with our food choices!

So here are some suggestions:

Obtain your vital minerals - get your electrolytes from fresh, natural foods - lots of variety (cover all your bases) - more from vegetables than fruit

Eating cooked food helps break down the fiber in foods, releasing the minerals and allowing better utilization of them. Minerals do not disintegrate from heat such as some vitamins and some enzymes (B12 does not disintegrate when you cook red meat!). Cooking removes lectins from vegetables - seriously important for inflammation. XXX

Raw food is excellent to allow us to obtain certain enzymes and vitamins and in our next lives, when we come back as cows or horses with four or six stomachs, then we can stick to raw completely! Hair analysis and live blood analysis of raw foodists are not impressive.  
Minerals activate and power up muscles and nerves; are integral in digestion; involved in energy production; required for all all healing and tissue regeneration.

Have your Himilayan rock salt with you (have some in the car or purse for when you eat out - a tad that you can tuck into your pocket) and at home. When/if you supplement, with liquid minerals, purchase the less popular (vegetable origin) humic acid or fulvic acid mineral supplements (beware of MLM products flogging minerals from shale - shale is a rock by any definition! So beware of expensive ground up high-aluminum-content rock in fancy sales presentations offered up on popular and credible  late night talk shows! Gimmicks!
More on the way it is processed - ie,o the heat that ruins the salt, not where it cames from - http://www.pacificholistic.com/salt

Eat those Brazil nuts - the trace mineral selenium in only these nuts has many uses in our bodies and especially as they often end up being the weakest link in allowing our bodies to make it’s own L-Glutathione - your body’s in-house anti-inflammatory. Selenium is now catching on and there are ever more reasons that the Brazil nut is being highlighted. There are really no other foods left that can pick up selenium through their root systems, except for the hardy Brazil nut tree. I turn mine into nut flour and back energy cookies with that. I also chop and toast them and add them to salads – nice and crunchy like croutons.

Eat lots of dulse or seaweed or nori - and take a drop of the excellent Lugol’s once a day in a glass of water - best on am empty stomach and rebalancing and healing can be done gracefully and faster – and take the deficiency test if you are curious (except not to be used with hyperthyroid conditions without your doctor’s okay) - http://www.pacificholistic.com/iodine.

Eating a lots of fish AND taking zinc supplements - once or twice a day (over 35 mg?). Than have a piece of real organic chocolate from time to time - there’s copper in the real cacao bean - (not in Cadbury’s caramel pillows). When we eat too much zinc (fish, shellfish and bottom feeders, etc) then that can push out the copper - as they are both vital but antagonists - yet we need then both, and copper is especially needed for skin, connective tissue and collagen… just not enjoyed at the exact same time.

Vitamin C (hopefully not from corn) is also an antagonist with selenium - so have your Vitamin C supplement or foods away from your Brazil nuts.

Zinc, Vit C, some Vit B’s, magnesium and calcium go ballistic in a good way and get masterfully used top in times of stress.

Are you taking in any chromium and vanadium - they are also antagonists - but each is OH so necessary - they allow the energy from our eating to enter the cells - special gatekeepers. By allowing glucagon derivatives into the cell’s mitochondria, and allowing more energy to be made, we also can go longer before the blood sugar rises enough to call out the insulin to bring the glucagon in the blood back downward. Never take these two trace minerals together - in spite of the fact that two large supplement companies know this, but market them together in one pill - as we shoppers are little ATM’s don’t you know!

And what about fluoride - does that matter?
The first, basic thing to know about fluoride is that not all fluorides are created equal. There are many types—both naturally occurring and synthetic garbage. The most common misconception is that the small amounts of ‘natural’ fluoride found in spring water and some organic earth, is harmful - ie fluoride NOT added by humans. This natural form of fluoride is called calcium fluoride and is usually found in soil and enters plants through the roots and a tiny amount of this fluoride is all we need to be healthy.
Another one of the most common types of fluoride is sodium fluoride. This is the synthetic, industrial waste version that you find in toothpaste, mouthwash, dental gels, some municipal water purification systems, etc and has been shown to be very harmful to bones and brains – young and old. In its purest form, sodium fluoride is actually capable of eating through concrete. Although sodium fluoride was the first compound to be used within our country’s tap water system in 1945, it has since been changed to a different compound called fluorosilicic acid and the jury is out on that substance – it must be very difficult to set up the tests....

Does this remind you of lithium?
Lithium Carbonate
 - an industrial waste product - is used as a bi-polar medication and administered in large quantities.
Lithium orotate is a god-send to rebalance hormonal and nerve cell tissue in tiny amounts. A friend calls it her horney-mone mineral. One catch, it is no longer allowed in Canada and so it’s best to order it from a large firm in the USA such as iherb.com and then hope the shipping works. Any brand will do and small amounts are fine. Dr John Gray (men are from Mars and women from Venus) is a strong proponent of this trace mineral.
There are other minerals that will help with mood swings and depression – namely tiny amounts of Molybdenum and Manganese - Mining for Good Mental Health and Feeling Better - and a grocery shopping list at the end of this article - http://www.pacificholistic.com/depression

If you often have leg cramps, muscle cramps, heart palpitations, constipation and sore muscles, then there is a possibility that you have a magnesium deficiency. The amazing thing is that some minerals can donate an electron and become another mineral. So magnesium can become calcium - but not the other way around. This marvellous BIOLOGICAL transmutation of minerals certainly helps us in times of need. However this trick of nature will not work to make up for the fact that non-organic mass-produced vegetables have squat to offer - most crops are bred for higher yields, better taste, cheaper production or better appearance, hardiness or bug resistance. Hothouse vegetables are grown in a slurry with lots of phosphorus and some nitrogen and potassium - far from the huge resplendent variety of major and trace minerals in naturally fertilized and the well-prepared dirt of the past. Now these soils, even when organic, are not even holding onto the basics - so keep eating creatively. Yup! This is a lifetime’s work.

Toxic sprays, insecticides and pesticides have now reached deplorable levels in the food chain - and mess with everything - from delicate enzyme production; to breaking down our gut wall, stealthfully; to taxing pancreatic tissue, etc., as if pharmaceutical medical damage wasn’t enough! Including a lot of sulfur in one’s diet is a good little buffer - as we cannot duck out of the way of all of the negative stuff. Glyphosates are, after all, in everything and have now saturated the regular growing soils. This interferes with the microorganisms in the soil and are required to make minerals usable to the crops’ roots. Glyphosates, herbicides, pesticides and fungicides also mess with the bacteria, enzymes and vitamin production in our 28 feet of intestines  - so bring on the sulfur! Onions and garlic like never before. The research work of the brilliant Dr Stephanie Seneff is easy to understand and very revealing. I hope she gets the Nobel Prize this year. More of her work at http://www.pacificholistic.com/glyphosate – always being updated.

REMOVING ToxIns including toxic METALS and making way for the good minerals.
We all use sweating as our major natural method of detoxification, especially in summer. An easy way for some more toxin removal is through steam saunas - (not infrared please!!!).  You can up your detox game further by having a serious steam heat sauna coupled with ozone / oxygen therapy - healing and detoxifying that carries on well after the session ends.
I do not recommend chelation therapies unless one is fighting for one’s life – it’s a very invasive chemical intrusion in order to remove chemicals, which is very daunting for our bodies - and is esp tough on our organs and really tough on our delicate kidneys. As the unwanted toxic metals are removed, so too are the much needed benevalant minerals and the entire balance is disrupted.
I do not recommend ‘natural’ chelation products such as supplements and homeopathics or drops. Some are derived from chlorella, cilantro, zeolite or other sources such as diluted EDTA and DMSA. They, too, can remove some vital minerals and cause deficiencies and imbalances between themselves.

And Bon Appetit!

I thought I’d give live blood cell analysis one more try with Pacific Holistic... I had this process done once before and was in awe of seeing my blood magnified onto a monitor. I was less impressed by the practitioner, whose nutritional education was lacking but not his resolve to take me and my long list of required supplements to a nearby health store and then to find out that this practitioner was actually an employee of the store, as well! Ms. Bakker makes suggestions for subtle lifestyle changes, new food choices and learning more, first. This isn’t earth shattering but tailored uniquely to me and then there’s a list with priorities and suggestions as to supplements and which brands and possible stores in the Lower Mainland that carry these brands – and I’m free to proceed as I wish. Her report and summary are thorough and honest and good to refer back to.
