Enzymes…a closer look

Alpha-Gal, histamine, allergies, food sensitivities, product sensitivities, fume sensitivities, and this list can go on. I suggest you go back and read the posts I have written on these subjects. I will explain the possible core of why these things happen and my personal protocol.

The subject is very sensitive, as these things change our lives, and the lives of everyone around us. The subject is for enlightenment, encouragement, empowerment and hope. The process I lay out can create long-lasting options, easy to tweak and change as the body changes and improves.

Enzymes are the components that keep us alive. without them we would not live. The best book on this subject is Enzyme Nutrition, the food enzyme concept. I suggest you read this book.

A little background

June 2016 I had a tick bite on my thigh; it bothered me for a couple weeks. In February 2017, I had logged more and more reactions to beef and mammal products; these included fumes, live animals, and body fluids from my spouse if he ate mammal meat. By April 2017 officially tested for AG mammal allergy.

From August 2018-October 2018, I had a healing of AG and lyme; this included 40 days of oxygen hyperbaric therapy, eating super clean, and anointing. The months of October 2018 to September 2020, I had other issues came to surface unrelated to AG; these included higher reactions to bug bites and stings, non-mammal food issues, and hormone changes. Dairy and other mammal products were safe for me in these months. At the time, I kept mammal meats out of my diet; overcoming the fear of eating mammal meats is tough.

September 3, 2020, I tried SAAT for AG because the test showed it still in my system. Oct 2020, I broke out in hives all over my body. After a week, I figured out the hives were high histamine, mast cell-related and monthly cycle related (perimenopausal). I feel strongly I had a reverse reaction to the acupuncture triggering my histamine release and the mast cell complication. Acupuncture and SAST is not bad; for many people, it can create a new kind of monster in the system. I went in for the SAAT histamine and mast cell needles mid-November 2020; this was a 28 day program. I never had improvement.

NOW

I decided to do research that was solid with decades of backing. and find a sustainable solution.

The gut is hit hardest by AG, lyme and the histamines. Building the gut was crucial. I know the basic process of gut building kept me from having the severe symptoms that many have; living a very healthy, organic life helps greatly in these situations. From all my research into Lyme over the years I knew there was a connection to AG. The best resource for Lyme is Buhner. AG symptoms are in several of the Lyme and Lyme coinfections. I believe AG at its core is a histamine/lyme co-infection issue, due to the sugar protein it comes in on from the tick. I have written on this in my past blogs.

Moving on

Enzymes and adrenal balance are at the core of AG and lyme takes hold, becomes serious, or not. I decided to run full force. I did not want to live with this any longer. The first step was balancing the system.

Hair mineral analysis is a test I use with my clients to check the mineral and nutritional balances in the body. Using diet and nutritional support to provide essential compounds for healthy function can be foundational to a good treatment plan. Making sure that the balances are in check ensures the body will function at its full potential. With AG, minerals will deplete very rapidly. Part of mineral supplementation is actual adrenal (bovine) enzymes; with AG bovine is a NO. Using vegan adrenal supplement, minerals and vegan digestive enzymes begins the process of restoration. Quercetin, NAC, Probiotic, and digestive enzymes is the key to calming the histamines symptoms associated with AG. After 1-3 months, the next step can begin.

Transition to DAO enzymes continues the path of calming the histamines and mast cells. I used one a day for a week. I added one per day every few days until I got to two capsule three times a day; these are taken at every meal. I continued to take the list in the previous paragraph. After a month on DAO I began to add the actual bovine supplement for adrenal support, replacing the vegan version. The supplements I take are from the lab I use for the mineral analysis. They are made to be individually matched. Building the minerals, calming the histamines and adding the enzymes back into a depleted body feels so good. The enzymes Then comes the fun step.

I began to pick one histamine or mammal product a day, adding it back into my diet. It was amazing how it all came together. In the Enzyme Nutrition book, healing issues of this nature is all about building slow and steady. He describes how to take in small portions, wait a few days, repeat. Each person must take the path as their body leads them. I have over done it, cut back, and keep on moving forward at the pace needed. If I have had a small reaction, I just take extra Quercetin or NAC and Oxygen. OH! Oxygen is super key to all of this; let’s say a bit about that.

Chlorophyll (Chloroxygen) has been a daily liquid since I was diagnosed with AG and lyme. Take this daily for sure! Oxygen wipes lyme out, and a lot of other bad things. Read my oxygen article.

The best part is taking the first bite of meat. I took that first bite after four years. It was small and tasted so good. A couple days later I took another bite. All the while, I continue to take the enzymes, minerals, and DAO (beef) and lists in previous paragraphs, three times a day with meals. I am still in the process, taking small steps. It will be lasting and it will work better than any other way. Nutrition, gut health, stress management are important, but there is one more.

Yahweh was the one who gave me all the guidance and all the resources. I never did any of this on my own. Fear is a liar. AG can be done away with inside our bodies. You do not have to live with this. Now take action ūüôā

Here for you if you need help with all of this.

What is Wrong With This Article?

First, read this article – Apricot Seeds: Cancer Treatment or Danger to Health? Then come back, and we can discuss it.

I will go over some things wrong and see if you all picked up on the same junk.
Apricot seeds
One, the title of the article is a red flag right off. The place it is coming from is the first clue (pharma organization).

Two, the article goes through and states all the great benefits and proof of the benefits of these seeds nutritionally.  They know they are good for you to eat.

Three, the article states many companies and way to use the seeds for food, and none of those are shut down or given negative words…that is huge! They state that the seeds eaten raw are dangerous, but you can grind them into flour and eat them in other forms!! Catch that?! One has to be very careful reading these articles run by the pharmaceutical agencies.

Four, the article states that 50-60 raw seeds is the researched amount of amygdalin/cyanide toxicity leading to death, and toxicity in lower amounts.  It lists other foods and seeds with this amygdalin (converts to cyanide) element in them but does not give them negative credit. It goes into the dangers of cyanide and what it can do. The article never proves this.

Five, after the article praises all the benefits, it consistently uses phrases, “There is currently no evidence…”, and “There is no scientific evidence…”, which are bogus statements.  Evidence is and always has been there for all fruit seeds to have these cancer-fighting properties, but the FDA and other organizations cannot make money off of this stuff and therefore put things like this to the side, disregard it, and create articles like this to sway the common man from the truth. Proof of this is in stories like the one in the article, where a man found an important component, B17, and then the FDA decided not to allow it to be sold in the states (they know it works but cannot get the profit from it because those men do not sell out to them, etc., another subject all together).

Six, the end of the article gives the clue that they just ate their words of “no evidence”, when they state, “There may be promise with using chemicals from apricot kernels…”; this just proves that they do know the truth, and they do have all the evidence and are trying to find a way to make it theirs.

Watch out for this kind of junk. Be careful reading all things. Prove all things. This article made me laugh all the way through, how they contradicted and ate their words all the way through, and tried to justify everything with partial evidence (not all sides).

OH, BY THE WAY, it is helping immensely to eat these seeds and kernels from fruit to rid my Alpha-gal. It is staying part of my protocol. Ask about my protocol.

BE healthy, be true, Take action, re-write your story.

Wrestling and Revealing (continuing the study of Job and life)

The Bible after Google: Evangelicals consider impact of technology on Bible readingOK, here we are again. I have some new thoughts as I have been through more of Job. (for my thoughts on the first part of Job see Truth Gets Real)

Job’s friends get very argumentative and aggressive toward the end of the conversation. They seemed right on in the beginning, and seemed like they are sent to reveal to Job something he never saw in his life, YET,¬† their conversations between each other and with Job are strikingly changing as one reads on and on into the book.

I feel like Job at this time in my life. I feel like all the work I have done to be healthy, eat healthy, think healthy, has been for naught. I then think of Job. He reveals what I feel Рwell, not quite as dramatic and not quite the loss Рbut, not eating mammal meat and dairy and nuts is life changing and harsh in my mind, and knowing that I can come in contact with something unknowingly every time I am out and about has set in me a fear I cannot seem to quench.  I am unsettled with what the purpose is in all of this mess of mineral depletion and deleted foods from my diet from a tiny tick carrying a mammal protein my body will not accept.   I cannot blame the Creator of all things. I cannot blame my lifestyle. I cannot blame anything really.

This is one of those “there are no answers” situations.¬† I have to be OK with the not knowing, move on to the healing, and know I can now be a light to others with it. None of this makes things any easier for the mind, heart, and soul.

One of the best renditions of Job comes out of a book called Inspired by Rachel Held Evens, where she screen writes Job, the friends, and Yahweh into a cafeteria scene in our modern times.  Job is a revealing that life is a way and the way has ups, downs, deserts and promised lands, and the way is not unscathed.

Truth Gets Real

The time to read Job is not when you are well, and all seems good in life. The time to read Job is when you are in a deep trial and loss in life.

Last night, as I read, I asked the Almighty to help me understand I John 1-5. I am stumped to some things in there. This morning I had a deep need to read Job instead, a book I have not read in quite some time, or just the ending.¬† I have read the first 10 chapters.¬† ¬†His friends came and sat with him, said nothing, to comfort him, which is what they needed to keep on doing and say little. They had messages and opinions, but they knew the temperament of Job, and they knew that he was upright in all his ways and wise.¬† When they spoke, the Bible translations want to belittle them and say that they were not helping, because Job was anguished by their words and became worse each time they spoke. YET, there is purpose in all they said and did. I am hearing and seeing the faith of Job, who is struggling and wrestling with Yahweh in his innocent anguish; he admits they are telling some truth but he knows he does not fit into it and will not give in to it, but he cannot figure out just why he is not giving in and why he does not fit in to the common mold of what his friends say–what he knows most fall into.¬† He is in pain, angry,¬† humiliated, brought down, removed from normal life as it was, and feeling tortured.¬† He is asking for revealing; this revealing is coming forth by a cause which Job will never know .¬† ¬†His friends are doing what Job had done with them so many times before.¬† The tables are being turned.¬† But, Job was a good, righteous man, not perfect, but not deserving of anything he is going through.¬† Job is a fault in the bible to us, right in the middle, to show us that life is not all cut and stacked with answers to everything.

I will continue to read Job this week.¬† I believe I will see truth in it I never saw before, only because I am in the middle of a physical and spiritual battle of my own.¬† I believe I have something still to see in order to fully heal from this AG and other allergy weeds that have developed in my healthy body and rocked my world.¬† I am anguished by the constant foods and products I cannot use or eat or even be around.¬† I am puzzled by the healing I thought I had, and now feel I never really had, or have I lost it somehow. I have lived a healthy lifestyle, and yet I find myself with a body that shows deterioration that does not fit into the “healthy” lifestyle results I had in mind.

OH, about John, I have not been back to John yet, but maybe I needed to wrestle with it also for a while; this is not a bad thing but what we are meant to do with the Word.

Rejoice in affliction, and allow revealing. It is real. It does prick the deepest part of the soul.

Oxygen – Where Did It Go?

Oxygen, a key element to our life on this planet

I have walked through this year with one of the most complex allergies I have ever heard of (Alpha-Gal, see previous posts for more info on this allergy).¬† I have bombed it with herbal therapy, nutritional/mineral medicine, natural cellular therapies, massage therapy, chiropractic, and biofeedback.¬† Being a health coach and wellness therapist, I was not going to allow this “weed” to own my system.¬† I began to consider oxygen because of the research into nutritional anemia. I noticed that when I took chlorophyll I felt better. I added it to the Breathe herbal tincture mix I used when I had an allergic reaction to a mammal product ( I also took charcoal).¬† The chlorophyll helped the side effects from the immune response, hormonal response and adrenal responses the Alpha-gal caused.

One day, I was at the chiropractor with a major migraine. We had discussed many times how this allergy had caused old injuries and nerve damage issues to reappear, and worse than before.  They also had a way of causing great trouble during certain times in my monthly cycle.  He suggested I try a new therapy, Hyperbaric because it was very successful in killing Lyme.  I decided that was an answer to prayer and began the therapy the following week. I have gone every day for almost 40 sessions (5 days a week).  I have had some amazing, noticeable changes in my body, sleep, energy, and hormones.  I believe the old injury issues have been released and are in the process of being completely healed.  I have not had a migraine once during these weeks. I believe it has killed the Alpha-gal and any Lyme I may have had. I will be testing the allergy in the coming two weeks for confirmation (self-diagnosis trials with food, and follow up allergy testing at the clinic). Along with all of that, I have mentally and emotionally been uplifted through this process. Anxiety is gone.

Oxygen,  a basic building block, in food, earth, air, blood, and water

We are supposed to be taking it in. In outdoor activity and in eating. Any and all issues will benefit and heal with enough oxygen in our blood cells, or cellular level of our systems. We begin with it (embryo oxygen tank) and we end with it (last breath).¬† Further back, Man was created with the “breath of life” – oxygen.¬† Our future with the Creator is made up of the Breath of Life, Oxygen –¬† for eternity.

I began with the title, Oxygen РWhere Did It Go? It is on the decrease in this world. Our land, water, and air are depleted of this essential element.  There is proof all over the planet where lakes have dying fish from lack of oxygen, and farmland has to be supplemented constantly to make it produce.  Humans have weakened and reduced the living things of this earth, and we are now living with the consequences of it all.  Our only option is to supplement because even if things turned around right now, and everyone began to do right with the earth, it would take generations before the oxygen would come back to what it once was.

I believe the Earth does have a time of healing and renewing in the future. For now, however, I hope to give you some hope that there still are some amazing ways to retain that oxygen level in your bodies. Hyperbaric is one. Herbs are another (because they have not been overproduced like much of our food has). Watch for my blog to come on that subject later.

I’ve included several pictures of me in the Hyperbaric Chamber in this post so you can see what I’ve been doing.

Smoke and other summer obstacles

Hello everyone.

I intended to have a video blog, but I am not going to have one of those today. I am going to write a few things concerning the obstacles I, and many like me, have to deal with this time of year.¬† SMOKE. It is the time of year grills are fired up, and smokers are going daily.¬† This is not good for me. I am allergic to smoke from these devices because of a mammal allergy (AG). If you have followed my blogs, you know a lot about Alpha Gal (AG) mammal allergy. If this is the first time reading anything about such an allergy, then please visit my web page to learn more.¬† This is a crazy allergy. It is not just ingesting internal mammal foods that affects me, it is fumes also, and some times skin contact (which is why I wash a lot with vegan soap, and carry vegan Seventh Gen sanitizing wipes with me everywhere).¬† It is difficult to avoid the smoke this time of year. I am an outdoor person. I love to camp, hike, and go to the lakes and parks. This has been a tough week for me emotionally and physically, from allergic reactions just by doing what I love to do and go where I love to go.¬† I attended a family, outdoor, military retirement party, at a lake, and had a little ingestion of some grilling smoke from nearby campsites. We stayed at at a family member’s home and I had allergic reactions from the fumes of cooking beef at breakfast time.¬† We attended a ball game of a family member spontaneously, and that particular field had someone grilling (no other field had grilling, just this one where the food vendors were); I had to stay away and never watched the game, which was depressing.¬† We smoked turkeys all day for a camp event, and I had a minor reaction to the fumes of those, because of other things that had been cooked in the smoker/grill on other occasions. I stopped in to my local grocery to pick up a quick item, and got into smoke from the store grilling in front of the doorway, and it blowing across the parking lot.¬† It is everywhere, the fumes. I am not as bad as many who have AG, and do not go into anaphylactic shock, but I do react and it is scary no matter.¬† It is a delayed reaction, making it even more difficult to take care of.¬† I have my reactions 11:30-2 at night every time, no matter when the contact with mammal sources. I believe I am on track using natural means to rid this AG from my body, but it takes time, and until then, this is my life.

This allergy is just a life game changer.  I intend to keep on fully living, but all I do and every where I go is high risk.  I guess this is life for all humans depending upon the perspective.  We all live in certain risk at all times. An allergy just adds to the risk that much more vulnerability.  This is life for me for a while. This is life for many of my friends with food allergies, asthma, and other similar things that just take a bit of life out of our summer outdoor fun.  Let us be aware of these things and these people around us.

Become advocates to everyone you come in contact with; talk to managers of stores, restaurants, and parks when something can be improved.  It takes little effort to make a big difference . Keep living and doing the fun things you love to do.  Keep on figuring out ways to rid the nasty stuff our of our bodies. Keep on striving for healing. Be careful, but do not allow fear to rule.  Be prepared, but  not paranoid.

TICKNOLOGY – Educate Yourself

Tick

I have had a tick-borne mammal allergy, Alpha-Gal (AG) for a year now. I am constantly aware, read all ingredients on everything, let everyone know wherever I go, including restaurants, and take more care outdoors (I am an outdoor gal and gardener).  I was bitten by a tick yesterday (May 16) in the late afternoon. I found it right away and it never got to be there long. I have to now be aware of anything that may change on the bite site, and send the tick in for evaluation. After having a tick bite and acquiring a tick-borne allergy/lyme, I can react to all other insect bites more than I did before, and I can have higher reactions each time I have a new tick bite.  It is crazy.  I cannot take any chances. I have been anointed and take great peace that I will not have any reactions from this bite. I did have a minor reaction last night about 11:30 p.m. for about 15 minutes with a high pulse and shaking as I usually do if I come in contact with anything mammal. I take large doses of charcoal and an herbal allergy tincture mix for reactions and do not have breathing issues or other bad issues associated with the common allergy to food.

I want everyone to be aware that this is a growing issue in our nation, and all over the world.  I believe it is worse because of gut health and bad genetics in our DNA, and each generation seems to be getting worse, even healthy people like me.  Our world is polluted and corrupted. We have not taken care of this land as we were told to do by the Creator.  But, I digress.  I have a website to share that will help you visualize the vastness of this tick-borne stuff Рhttps://www.ticknology.org/.   Please educate yourselves and others.

Please watch for and share my upcoming classes on food allergies and sensitivities, and others, covering the sources such as ticks and more.  This information can be found on my class information page.


If you’ve benefited from the information I share, would you please take a moment to leave feedback for my page, and on my google
