c37fc5cdcba962f3a117331ff6b5b1a4--pepper-benefits-benefits-of

Rooipeper of “Cayenne pepper” is baie warm chili peper van die “Capsicum” familie.  Word by baie gewilde Suid Afrikaanse disse gebruik as ‘n kenmerk van die reuk en geur van die ete.

Enkele historiese feite van rooipeper as produk.

  • Herkoms is uit Sentraal Amerikas, en vernoem na Cayenne, ‘n stad in French Guiana.
  • Rooipeper is deel van Amerikaanse Indiane medisyne en eetgebruike vir die afgelope 9000 jaar.
  • Capsin in rooipeper, is die element wat waarskynlik al die medisinale en voedingseienskappe dra.
  • Rooipeper bevat  Vitamien C (lees hier op oor al die nodige vitamienes se se funksies in die liggaam) Vitamien B6, (essensieel om verskeie ensieme funksioneel te maak krities tot mens se gesondheid) Vitamin E,  potassium, mangaan, flavonoids.
  • Oop wonde moet nooit aan capsin blootgestel word nie.

Wat is rooipeper?

CAYENNE

Rooipeper is ‘n bekende spesery wat bekende medisinale eienskappe bevat wat tradisioneel gebruik word as ‘n natuurlike plantproduk om pyne, skete, seer spiere en gewrigte gesond te maak en te hou.

Rooipeper is ook deel van Chinese tradisionele medisyne, en word daar gebruik om bloedsomloop te bevorder en ook om aptyt te bevorder.

Voordele en gebruike

b98f4c6abc1fc2c726b702a3b55a267c--cayenne-pepper-benefits-cancer-cure

Cayenne pepper may have a range of health benefits.

  1. Pynverligting
  • Capsaicin die aktiewe bestandeel in rooipeper mag verskeie pynverligtingvoordele bevat. Een artikel wil selfs beweer dat rooipeper analgiese eienskappe bevat eienskappe wat pyn verdoof sonder om die bewyssyn te verloor.
  • Capsaicin in rooipeper het ook die eienskappe om die boodskapper wat pynboodskappe na die brein te stuur, (Substance P) te verdoof.
  • Studies beweer dat die gebruik van rooipeper liggaamstemperatuur verhoog wat lei tot die verbranding van kalorieë.

Toe neus tydens verkoues.

how-cayenne-pepper-helps-quit-smoking-6-638

Rooipeper word gebruik as n middel teen verkoues en griep, asook toe neuse. Omdat dit kan help om bloedvate te krimp by die neus en keel.

‘n Tuisresep vir verkoues kan oorweeg word

  • ¼ teelepel rooipeper
  • ¼ teelpel gemmer
  • Eetlepel heuning
  • Eetlepel appelasyn
  • Twee eetlepels water en neem dit in.

Sommige maak van rooipeper, appelasyn en suurlemoensap n warm tee om sinusse op te klaar.

Voedingswaardes van Rooipeper

Volgens die USDA National Nutrient Database, bevat een eetlepel rooipeper (5.3 gram) die volgende eienskappe.

  • 17 kalorieë
  • 0.64 g proteien
  • 0.92 g vet
  • 3 g  stysels, wat 1.4 g vesel en 0.6 g suiker
  • 8 mg of kalsium
  • 0.41 mg yster
  • 8 mg magnesium
  • 16 mg fosfor
  • 107 mg of potassium

Ander waardes sluit in Vitamien C, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamien B-6, en foliensuur. Foliensuur is een van die B–vitamiene wat veral in lewer gevind word. Foliensuur is krities in die vorming van rooi- en witbloedselle in die beenmurg. Dit skakel ook stysels om in energie en produseer DNA en RNA.

Rooipeper is ook hoog is in flavonoiede and karotenoiede (wat rooipeper se kleur weergee). Die twee terme sal in ander skrywes verduidelik word.

Geaktiveerde Houtskool- Activated Charcoal

Mediese en veterinêre doeleindes van geaktiveerde houtskool!

activated-charcoal

Belangrik: Geaktiveerde houtskool is nie die houtskool waarmee mens braai nie.

Geaktiveerde houtskool is ‘n swart poeier, sonder smaak of reuk en ‘n produk wat gebruik word om gifstowwe in die maag te neutraliseer. Belangrik by die vergiftiging van diere en ook by mense, wat ‘n oordosis pille inneem om hul eie lewe te neem.

Geaktiveerde houtskool word nie verteer of opgelos deur die sure of die alkalië van die spysverteringskanaal nie.

Dit word dus nie in die bloedstroom opgeneem nie.

Dit beteken weer dat dit glad nie toksies is nie.

charcoal

Die kapsules is ideaal as mense na ‘n plek reis waar voedselvergiftiging of ’n maagaandoenings ‘n moontlikheid is.

d3b87339-2aac-4195-befd-a7f42a831c5f

In ’n noodgeval

In die geval van ’n akute maagaandoening of vergiftiging (mens of troeteldier), wil jy so gou moontlik effektief optree. Gee 6 kapsules tot 10 kapsules in, afhangende van die hoeveelheid gif ter sprake.

food

Meting van Geaktiveerde Houtskool.

  • Die vlakke van aktivering en absorpsie word gemeet aan ’n jodiumtelling.
  • Die meeste geaktiveerde houtskoolprodukte het ’n jodiumtelling van tussen 500 en 800.

Maak en Voorbereiding van Geaktiveerde Houtskool.

Geaktiveerde houtskool word gevorm deur die “droë distillasie van hout” en word geproduseer van verskillende hout, doppe van vrugte en neute. Gewilde grondstowwe (houtsoorte) is populier, beukehout, dennehout en ook neutdoppe.

“Droë distillasie” beteken gewoon dat geaktiveerde houtskool in ‘n proses voorberei moet word waar suurstof afgesny word in die verbrandingsproses.  Hierdie houtprodukte word dus in ‘n proses vervaardig waar suurstof afgesny word. Daarna gaan dit deur verdere chemiese prosesse, om die eienskappe van die doel van geaktiveerde houtskool te verhoog.

Eienskappe soos om die houtskoolstruktuur meer poreus te kry vir verbeterde absorpsie van gifstowwe en ander produkte sou dit welke manier ingeneem word.

Die resultaat is ’n hoogs absorberende stof. Met miljoene klein porieë wat swaar metale, chemikalieë, gasse en gifstowwe uit die vel, en selfs die mond en tande kan opneem en absorbeer en neutraliseer.

Dit word ook met groot sukses in ons Pierre @ EcoHealth Bentoniet klei en kaolienklei gebruik, veral by mense met aknee en sensitiewe velle, as deel van die masker.

person-holding-a-model-of-intestines

Die absorberingsvermoë en kwaliteite van geaktiveerde houtskool is ‘n belangrike algemene kennis aspek.

Kennis hiervan kan baie waardevol wees. Enkele aspekte en eienskappe!

  1. Geaktiveerde houtskool moet veral waar kinders teenwoordig is, altyd beskikbaar wees. Veral waar kinders skadelike chemikalie of pille inneem, en waar diere vergiftig word.
  1. Geaktiveerde houtskool is nie toksies nie by oordosering. Dit bring onmiddellike verligting by mens en dier wat sukkel met diarree, gasse, met spastiese kolon en by voedselvergiftiging. Dit kan na braking weer ingeneem word.
  1. Geaktiveerde houtskool sal ook die doel en effek van medikasie verminder en selfs neutraliseer, sou dit twee ure voor of na medikasie ingeneem word.
  1. Geaktiveerde houtskool sal gifstowwe wat allergiese reaksies in die liggaam, oksidatiewe stres en ander skade wat die natuurlike goeie werking van die immuunstelsel beïnvloed, neutraliseer. Dit doen dit deur gifstowwe uit jou selle en spysverteringstelsel te absorbeer en te neutraliseer.
  1. Geaktiveerde houtskool sal artritis se oorsake en simptome, ook gout en ander oorsake van gewrigpyne en die oormaat van maag en uriensuur verminder. Wat ooglopend verhoogde energievlakke sal meebring.
  1. Geaktiveerde houtskool kan geneem word om gasse in die maag te absorbeer en te neutraliseer. Word gebruik by die oordosis dwelms, by inname van gekontamineerde voedsel wat  voedselvergiftiging veroorsaak. Ook het dit n matige effek by babbelas, wat die inname van oormaat alkohol, ook alkoholvergiftiging  versag.
  1. Die gebruik van geaktiveerde houtskool voorkom ook sellulêre skade aan die niere en lewer en ondersteun ook gesonde bynierfunksionering. Dit is noodsaaklik om gifstowwe en chemikalieë gereeld te reinig van die liggaam. Geaktiveerde houtskool absorbeer en spoel met die gebruik daarvan die liggaam van skadelike gifstowwe en chemikalieë.
  1. Geaktiveerde houtskool word gebruik om die distillering van drank. Die enigste verskil tussen Vodka en Gin is die hoeveelheid keer wat die een produk meer of minder as die ander produk deur geaktiveerde houtskool gefilter is.
  1. Geaktiveerde houtskool staan ook bekend as “Pulls”. Dit is om swaarmetale by inname van voedsel te absorbeer en te neutraliseer waar ander moontlike gebruike nie moontlik is nie of te duur.
  1. Geaktiveerde houtskool word gebruik in die verbleiking van suikerstroop, ook by swembadfilters en natuurlike visdam of tropiese visboerderye se filters.
  1. Skoonheidsalonne en tandartse gebruik geaktiveerde houtskool in skoonmaak van tande. Word aktief gebruik by die witmaak van tande as skuurmiddel. Ook om bakterie in plaak te absorbeer. Dit is ook ʼn baie veilige natuurlike middel by die skoonmaak van honde se tande.
  1. Word ook gebruik by verspillings om die verspreiding van gifstowwe in water en grond te keer en of te neutraliseer. Dit word by byna alle gifneutraliseringsprosesse gebruik, ook by die verspilling van gif en ander skadelike stowwe in en om die huis asook by landbou en dierevoeding.
  1. By aansteeklike siektes soos tifus en cholera word geaktiveerde houtskool gebruik om die verspreiding daarvan te voorkom en te inhibeer en ook om aansteeklike materiaal soos water te neutraliseer.
  1. Kan gebruik word by erge diarree van mens en dier, braking te inhibeer, gastritis te inhibeer en die pH in die spysvertering te neutraliseer waar te hoë suur vlakke beleef.
  1. Verminder hoë cholesterol: Navorsing oor die hele wêreld wys dat geaktiveerde houtskool verminder slegte cholesterol en verhoog goeie cholesterol soortgelyk aan voorskrif medisyne. In een studie het die totale cholesterol gedaal met 25 persent, LDL cholesterol gedaal met 41 persent, terwyl HDL het met 8 persent gestyg het in net vier weke.

Die lewer en sy Belangrikheid

Inleiding:

The lewer is die grootste orgaan in die liggaam. Sy belangrikheid word beklemtoon met die vele metaboliese funksies wat die lewer het. Die lewer is mens en dier se eie persoonlike chemiese verwerkingsaanleg. Dit filter sowat 30% van die liggaam se totale bloedvolume op elke gegewe minuut, waar dit skadelike stowwe opvang en verwerk asook noodsaaklike voedingstowwe vervaardig en versprei in die bloedstroom.

1534361035741

Die lewer is aktief betrokke by ongeveer 500 funksies in die liggaam.

  1. Dit breek voedingstowwe af in ons dieët
    1. Breek dit op in herkenbare vorme
    2. stoor hierdie voedingstowwe
    3. en verskaf dan hierdie voedingstowwe aan selle en organe soos wat dit benodig word.

maxresdefault

  1. Die lewer neem toksiese stowwe (vrye radikale) in die liggaam op
    1. Breek dit af in skadelose afvalstowwe
    2. Skei dit uit na die maag en vir uitskeiding

zDA0M81tQ32lXyTy67EK_liver-bile-detox-pathway-how-a-toxins-are-making-you-gain-fat-toxic-diet-alex-fergus-pcb

  • Die lewer filter ongeveer elke gegewe minuut 1.4 liter bloed, en in totaal sowat 600 liter bloed per dag en skei ureum uit na
  • Die niere, wat sowat 400 liter afskeiding van die lewer in die vorm van ureum filter. Ureum is ‘n afvalstof van die lewer en dit word na die niere uitgeskei, wat dit verwerk en uitskei as uriene.

Kenmerke van die lewer

  • Die menslike lewer weeg ongeveer 1.4 kg. Sit aan die regter bokant van die abdomen en net onder die diafragma. Neem die meeste plek in onder die ribbes.
  • Die lewer is duidelik verdeel in twee eenhede, ‘n groter en ‘n kleiner lob. Die twee lobbe word aanmekaar geheg deur “connective tissue” (sien die funksie van kollageen) wat die lewer anker in die abdomen.
  • Die galblaas stoor gal en word in n klein holte aan die onderkant van die lewer gevind.
  • Die lewer bestaan uit baie klein eenhede wat as “lobules” bekend staan. In hierdie lobules is duisende klein kanaaltjies waardeur die bloed syfer.
  • Bloed word van die spysverteringskanale in die lewer ingepomp deur die hart met die “Portal Vein”. Hierdie toevoer van bloed is ryk aan voedingstowwe in ons dieët. Maar, dit bevat ook die chemiese stowwe van medikasie asook toksiese afvalstowwe wat in die liggaam opgeneem word en of self vervaardig.
  • In die lewer word voedingstowwe opgeneem, afvalstowwe verwerk, gestoor, verander en ontgif “detox” en weer in die bloedstroom vrygestel om gebruik te word, of om deur die liggaam uitgeskei te word.
  • Vitamien K is ‘n belangrike vitamien vir die lewer. Saam produseer hul proteiëne wat belangrik vir bloedverdikking (Wafarin medikasie is bloedverdunningsmedikasie).
  • Die lewer is ook funksioneel in die afbreek van ou bloedselle wat hul lewensiklus voltooi het.

NAFLD

Metabolisme en die Lewer

Die lewer speel ‘n sentrale rol in alle metaboliese prosesse van die liggaam.

Die lewer gebruik vetselle (vet is die liggaam se spens) as voorbeeld, om energie te verwek. ‘n Disfunksionele lewer sal dus nie instaat wees om vet in die liggaam funksioneel af te breek veral by mense wat ‘n paar kilogram sou wou wil verloor nie. ‘n Disfunksionle lewer kan dus ook die oorsaak wees waarom gewig opgetel word.

istockphoto-473850118-1024x1024

Die lewer produseer ook sowat 800-1000 ml gal per dag. ‘n Groen-geel dikkerige vloeistof wat belangrike funksie het in die absorbering van vet, asook die afbreek daarvan. Word in klein kanaaltjies versamel wat in die galblaas eindig en daarna na ‘n gedeelte van die dunderm toe versprei word.

gutjnl-2017-June-66-6-1138-F1.large

Metabolisering van Stysel

Met die metabolisering van stysels stabiliseer die lewer bloedglukose-vlakke in die liggaam. As die suikervlakke styg in die liggaam (soos byvoorbeeld na ‘n maaltyd) sal die lewer suiker in die bloedstroom neem (komende van die “Portal Vein”) en dit stoor in die vorm van glukose.

As die liggaam se bloedsuikervlakke te laag is, sal die lewer glukose afbreek en vrystel as suiker en dit dan vrylaat in die bloedstroom. Die lewer stoor ook minerale soos yster en koper en stel dit in die bloedstroom vry wanneer die liggaam dit benodig.

maxresdefault (1)

Metabolisering van Proteiene

Die lewer speel ook ‘n funksionele rol in die afbreek van proteiene. Breek en verander amino-sure in voedsel sodat dit gebruik kan word vir die vervaardiging van energie vir die liggaam. Of, om voedsel om te skakel in suikers en vette en dit dan te stoor.

Die lewer se afvalstowwe word vrygestel in die vorm van ammoniak, wat ‘n toksiese en sadelike stof is. Die lewer versag die skadelikheid van amoniak, verander dit in ureum voordat dit in die bloedstroom vrygestel word. Ureum (Urea) word dan in die bloedstroom na die niere vervoer wat dit deur die urienwegstelsel as uriene vrystel.

 

Liver-Bruising-Connection

Opsommend.

  1. Die lewer is een van die belangrikste organe in die liggaam en moet as ‘n vriend beskou word wat jou wil voed, en in dieselfde asem wil “detox” of ontgif.
  2. Die is die liggaam se eie voedselverwerkingsaanleg
  3. Dit is die liggaam se spens. Dit stoor nutriënte wanneer nodig en stel energie vry waneer nodig.
  4. Breek ook nie-suikers, soos proteiene of amino-sure af en skakel dit om as as glukose om bloedsuikdervlakke optimaal te hou.
  5. Breek ook vette af soos cholestrol, lipo-proteiene en phospholipiede.
  6. Die lewer is ook die liggaam se spens wat Vit A, Vit B12, Vit D, Vit E asook minerale soos yster en koper.
  7. Filtreer nitrogeengasse, cholestrol en skadelike hormone na die niere en ingewande vir uitskeiding
  8. Vervaardig gal om al die skadelike toksiese stowwe te neutraliseer asook om te help in die geval van afbreek van voedsel by inname.

Gevolge van Disfunksionele Lewer

Wanneer dar lewerskade van soorte by mens en dier ontstaan, wat verskeie oorsake het, kan vele probleme ontstaan. Alle boed beweeg deur die lewer. Die lewer moet alle toksiese stowwe, vette, voedingstowwe, afvalstowwe van soorte filter en filtreer. Afbreek en of stoor en uitskei.

Die lewer moet dooie bloedselle, afval en gebruikte hormone,  medisyne soos penisillien suksesvol afbreek en uitskei na die maag en uitskeidingsorgane soos limfkliere en kolon.

skin-pigment-in-elderly-5-638

Wanneer die lewer nie dit suksesvol doen nie, kan vele siektes ontstaan.

Dan versamel hierdie toksiese afvalstowwe orals in selle in die liggaam. Dit kan lei na sere op die bene of ander dele van die liggaam, kan breinskade en of komas ook veroorsaak.

Fatty-Liver-symptom-cause-risk-factor-treatment-bangkok-hospital-thailand

Die lewer produseer op ‘n kontstante basis proteiene. Wanneer die lewer onsuksesvol lewensnoodsaaklike proteiene vervaardig, (belangrik vir die bestaan van alle lewe in plante en diere) en daarmee saam “blood clotting” of normale bloedverdikking suksesvol verseker, kan bloeding ontstaan in organe of in wonde wat baie moeiik stop.

Dit lei ook tot “bruises” of onverklaarbare bloukolle en oppervlakkige rooikolle en ontsteking.

Fatty-Liver-Cirrhosis

Die Wonder van die Lewer

Die lewer is die enigste orgaan wat homself kan hernu, en kan teruggroei met volle funksie. Vir die rede kan jy ‘n gedeelte van die lewer skenk sonder dat jy as persoon enige skade ly.

detox-pathways-e1411681365440

Gaan sien ‘n mediese praktisyn indien die volgende opgemerk word;

  • Swelling van die bene of enkels
  • Onverklaarbare jeuk
  • Donker uriene
  • Vaalkleurige, of bloederige of teer of swart stoelgang
  • Kroniese moegheid
  • Geelkleurige neerslag in die wit van die oë
  • Braking
  • Maklike kneusings en of bloeding en bloukolle
  • Maagwerkings of diarree, ens

Siektes van die lewer

  • Sirrose van die lewer, ook bekend is as “scarred liver.” Dit is lewer wat nie normaal funksioneer nie.
  • Hepatitis A, B en C.
  • WILSONS’S se siekte
  • Lewerskade weens alkohol misbruik
  • Kanker van die lewer
  • Vervette lewer of “Fatty Liver Disease”

Why Is a Male Cat’s Penis Barbed

By Leslie Carver

Male cats who are neutered before 6 months old don’t develop barbs. Male cats who are neutered before 6 months old don’t develop barbs. Every physical characteristic your cat has contributes to survival. The barbs on a male cat’s penis are no exception. They help ensure that his genes are passed on through successful mating. He was not born with them, and if he was neutered very young he may never even develop them.
urogenital-system-male-cat-animal-vector-illustration-53988330

Cats Aren’t Born with Them.


Male kittens are not born with barbed penises. Mar Vista Animal Medical Center, a veterinary clinic in California, says that cats reach puberty when they are about 6 months old. The barbs develop on the penis at this point because their purpose is to aid in reproduction.
1496221997241750705

Stimulating Ovulation.

One purpose of the barbs on a cat’s penis is to aid in a female’s ovulation. Females do not ovulate before sexual intercourse. Instead, the barbs stimulate the female cat’s vulva during intercourse, which causes her body to then release an egg. This is painful for the female, but part of the process.
cat_mating1

Preventing the Female from Escaping.


The other purpose of the barbs on a cat’s penis is to keep the female cat from escaping before mating is complete. She may attempt to flee because cats are more likely to be loners than dogs and resent the intrusion to some point. Mating is also painful for female cats, both because of the barbs themselves and because the male cat begins by biting the back of the female’s neck.
Feline Anatomy.

Early Neutering Prevents Development.


According to Mar Vista Animal Medical Center, male cats who are neutered before they are 6 months old never develop barbs on the penis. Neutering is the removal of the testicles, which stops the cat’s reproductive development. When it is done before the cat reaches puberty, there is no reason for the penis to develop barbs.

Leaky gut (LGS)

“Leaky gut syndrome is a condition that affects your digestive system. In leaky gut syndrome, these tight junctions loosen, potentially allowing harmful substances like bacteria, toxins and undigested food particles to enter your bloodstream…”

Leaky Gut: Can This Overlooked Sickness Be Wrecking Your Health?

by Ronald Grisanti D.C., D.A.B.C.O., D.A.C.B.N., M.S.

Leaky Gut Syndrome (LGS) is a major cause of disease and dysfunction in modern society, accounts for at least 50% of chronic complaints, as confirmed by laboratory tests.

Leaky-Gut-Syndrome

In LGS, the epithelium on the villi of the small intestine becomes inflamed and irritated, which allows metabolic and microbial toxins of the small intestines to flood into the blood stream. This event compromises the liver, the lymphatic system, and the immune response including the endocrine system.

Some of the most incurable diseases are caused by this exact mechanism, where the body. Gut Syndrome is often the real basis for chronic fatigue syndrome and pediatric immune deficiencies.

People-with-autoimmune-disorders

Leaky attacks its own tissues.

This is commonly called auto-immune disease.

It is often the primary cause of the following common conditions: asthma, food allergies, chronic sinusitis, eczema, urticaria, migraine, irritable bowel, fungal disorders, fibromyalgia, and inflammatory joint disorders including rheumatoid arthritis are just a few of the diseases that can originate with leaky gut. It also contributes to PMS, uterine fibroid, and breast fibroid.

leaky-gut-image

Leaky Gut Syndrome is reaching epidemic proportions within the population. Historically, the only way bowel toxins entered the blood stream was through trauma, for example by sword or spear.

Leaky-Gut-Diseases

This quickly led to septicemia that might be treatable, or more probably, ended in death. Outside of trauma, the body maintained a wonderfully effective selective barrier in the small intestine, one that allowed nutrients to enter, but kept out metabolic wastes and microbial toxins rampant in the intestines.

images (1)

What Modern Event Allowed Such A Break-Down?

Primarily it has been antibiotics, secondarily non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs, Motrin, Aleve and Advil) with NSAIDs being the major cause of leaky gut because they so viciously inflame the intestinal lining, causing a widening of the spaces between cells and sometimes hemorrhaging.

Healthy-Gut-vs-Leaky-Gut

Other common causes are chemotherapy, ingested alcohol, inhaled formaldehyde from a new carpet, food allergens, stress emotions, lactase deficiency, gluten/gliaden allergy, abnormal gut flora (bacteria, parasites, yeasts).

The first antibiotic, penicillin, did not enter mainstream health care until 1939. Since the 50’s and 60’s, antibiotic use has been frantically prescribed for every infection and inflammation, particularly pediatric ear infection, bronchitis, and sore throat.

It is sadly ironic that most of these infections are viral in nature, and not only are the antibiotics damaging, but they are ultimately unnecessary. Antibiotics should be considered a hospitalization level medicine, when bacteria have entered the blood, bone, or organ.

Antibiotics Destroy Beneficial Bacteria

Antibiotics create their damage in two ways. The first is by destroying beneficial bacteria. The small intestine and large intestine host over five hundred different kinds of beneficial bacteria. These bacteria perform hundreds of functions required for healthy metabolism and immune response.

Complete-Health-Clinic-Leaky-Gut-Syndrome-4R-Program

Through enzyme secretions, bacteria transform metabolic and microbial wastes before they are discharged by the body. These wastes include cellular debris, hormones, chemical wastes, bile, pus accumulations, viral toxins, bacterial toxins, etc.

75a5837651d72dd8dee26faf329a7576

For example, the body creates bile not only as a lubricant to flush wastes out of the liver, but also, to detoxify many of the poisons accumulating in the liver. Bile however is extremely damaging to large intestine epithelium.

When bile enters the small intestine via the common bile duct, beneficial bacteria break the bile salts down into a less toxic compound, making it non-dangerous by the time it reaches the large intestine.

fig32-72230623-opt03-171

When you take antibiotics you destroy these bacteria and the bile salts freely enter and damage the large intestine. I believe this contributes significantly to the high incidence of colon cancer plaguing today’s society.

Beneficial bacteria also break down hormone secretions that are discharged from the liver to the small intestine. If you lack the bacteria to break down estrogen and the intestinal permeability has been altered, the patient is now reabsorbing estrogens in their original state.

0d5698fd769de983d9fe55e823683c15

The body will deposit these in estrogen sensitive areas such as the breast, uterus, or ovaries, contributing, if not causing, fibroids and tumors. The same scenario is responsible for premenstrual syndrome as well.

Healthy mucosa allows nutrients to pass the barrier while blocking the entry of toxins.

With leaky gut, the barrier is dysfunctional, blocking nutrients at the damaged villi while permitting toxins to enter the blood stream.

Brain-gut-microbe-communication-in-health-and-disease-A-stable-gut-microbiota-is

Antibiotics Promote the Growth of Fungus

The second way antibiotics damage the intestines is by fostering the growth of Candida albicans and other pathogenic fungi and yeast. This event, more than any other, precipitates Leaky Gut Syndrome.

healing-gut-diet-plan-plexus-slim-the-autoimmune-solution-pillar-i-heal-your-gut-amy

In a healthy situation the small intestine epithelium maintains tight cell junctions, which contributes to the physical barrier involved in intestinal absorption. In addition to the physical barrier, there is an important chemical barrier within the mucus that contains immune agents, which neutralize any toxin that comes in contact.

Candida exudes an aldehyde secretion, which causes small intestine epithelial cells to shrink. This allows intestinal toxins to infiltrate through the epithelium and into the blood. The secondary barrier – immune agents in the epithelial mucus – remain the sole agent for neutralization.

Eventually, the immune system becomes exhausted rising to this challenge.

The damage done by Candida is to the intestinal epithelial barrier, allowing the absorption of serious toxic agents and chemicals, which then enter the blood and affect numerous organs, including the brain.

When the integrity of the intestinal barrier has been compromised, intestinal toxins are not the only pathogens to be absorbed. The barrier, in a healthy state, selectively allows digested nutrients to enter the small intestine when all is ready.

With leaky gut, nutrients can be absorbed before they are fully digested. The body’s immune response, through specific antigen-antibody markers, will tag some of these foods as foreign irritants.

leaky-Gut

Every time that particular food touches the epithelia, an inflammatory immune response is mounted which further damages the epithelial lining. What started as a Candida irritation with shrinking of the cells has now been complicated with active inflammation every time a particular food is eaten.

Food allergies are a common secondary problem to Candida, and if present, will maintain the leaky gut continuously, even if the Candida is eradicated.

The most common food allergies are dairy, eggs, gluten grains (wheat, oats, rye), corn, beans (especially soy), and nuts. There are seldom real allergies to meat, rice, millet, vegetables, or fruit, although an allergy to garlic is not uncommon.

We have to distinguish a real allergy – that which causes a histamine inflammatory reaction at the site of the small intestine (SI) epithelia – from sensitivity, which may cause uncomfortable symptoms, but seldom is damaging.

Sensitivities are usually due to low stomach acid or pancreatic enzyme secretion, that is, poor digestion.

In the healing of the intestinal lining, exposure to a significant allergy can sabotage the treatment. For example, one may be very good at restricting wheat, dairy and eggs, but then compromises the treatment by taking garlic tablets.

The Role of the Liver and Lymphatic System

The metabolic and microbial toxins that enter the bloodstream during leaky gut end up in the liver, which has the job of detoxifying and discharging the poisons. Under normal conditions, the liver is taxed just by processing the daily metabolic wastes created by cell and organ activity.

fig32-72230623-opt03-171

Imagine the further load created by dumping serious intestinal toxins on a regular basis. There is a point when the liver becomes saturated; it cannot further detoxify the poisons, and they are returned to the blood circulation.

The blood has sophisticated mechanisms for preserving chemical homeostasis, and will diffuse as much of the toxic chemicals and physical debris into the interstitial fluids as is possible. From here the lymphatic system will attempt to collect and neutralize the toxins, but unable to send the toxins to the liver, the body essentially becomes toxic.

Microbes grow and develop, hence there can be chronic lymphatic swelling, especially in children. Over a period of time, toxins will be forced into distal connective tissue around muscles and joints, causing fibromyalgia, or into the cells, which can precipitate genetic mutation and ultimately cancer.

Stress to the Immune and Endocrine Systems

The immune system is stressed in three major ways. First is at the site of the intestinal mucosa. As toxins and food antigens brush up against the mucosa, the immune system mobilizes to neutralize the toxins. Normally, much of this work would have been done by beneficial bacteria, which have been destroyed by antibiotics.

For toxins that make it to the mucosa, the body will tag them with a chemical secretory IgA (SIgA), which attracts macrophages and other white blood cells to consume the toxins. It is not long before this immune response is overwhelmed and depleted.

This can be measured directly with a stool or saliva test for the intestinal SIgA level.

The second stressor happens in the liver and lymphatic system, which, also overwhelmed, puts demands on the immune system. The third stressor is a consequence: as the immune response diminishes, more microbes (viruses, bacteria, and fungi) multiply, allowing for a chronic state of infection.

The most important organ in the production of immune agents seems to be the adrenal gland, and Leaky Gut Syndrome slowly diminishes adrenal function. In the early and middle stages, there is actually an adrenal excess, as measured by excess cortisol output. Eventually, cortisol levels drop, and one now has exhaustion.

The Role of the Digestive Tract

Candida flourishes when the terrain in the intestines favors it. Just killing Candida is usually not successful, because the chemistry and vitality of the terrain has not been normalized, and Candida returns.

Antibiotics are the original cause of the change on the terrain. By killing acid forming bacteria (Lactobacillus bacteria produce lactic acid, for example), the environment becomes alkaline, which promotes Candida.

Antibiotics and chronic illness reduce stomach acid production, contributing to the alkalinity, and also allowing poor digestive absorption. In fact, many people with LGS are malnourished and will lose excessive weight, no matter how healthy the food is that they eat.

The idea that lactobacillus supplementation is all that is required after antibiotics is somewhat delusional; in fact most of the lactobacillus from supplementation does not survive in the intestine, due to poor terrain. Just to make sure you have a full understanding of the seriousness of Leaky Gut, the following is a summary:

  • When the gut is inflamed it does not secrete digestive enzymes to digest foods properly or absorb nutrients and foods properly. The result can indigestion with gas and bloating, called irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
  • When large food particles are absorbed, food allergies and new symptoms are created (e.g., IBS, gallbladder disease, arthritis or fibromyalgia).
  • When the gut is inflamed, carrier proteins are damaged, so malabsorption and nutrient deficiencies occur.These deficiencies slow down the ability of the gut to heal and can cause any number of other symptoms (e.g., magnesium deficiency induced angina or gut spasms, chromium deficiency induced high cholesterol or sugar cravings, zinc deficiency induced prostatitis or lack acid formation)
  • When the detoxification pathways that line the gut are compromised, chemical sensitivity can arise. Furthermore, the leakage of toxins overburderns the liver so that the body is less to handle everyday chemicals in foods, water and air.
  •  Now many foods can cause symptoms that never did before, because the gut’s detoxification (liver) system is unable to cope with the hundreds of chemical additives, dyes, colorings, preservatives and pesticides common in our foods.
  • When the gut lining is inflamed, the protective coating of the gut antibodies can be lost. With loss of the secretory immunoglobulin A (SigA), the body becomes more vulnerable to infections in the intestines from bacteria, viruses, parasites and yeast and they become resistant to treatment.
  • Ironically, the more resistant the bugs become, the more-high powered antibiotics doctor prescribe, resulting in more overgrowth of resistant fungi (Candida). As the unwanted bugs grow, the gut gets more inflamed and leaky initiating a vicious cycle of worsening condition and major cause of so many incurable diseases.
  • When the intestinal lining is inflamed, bacteria and yeast can translocate. In other words, they can pass from the gut cavity into the blood stream and set up infection anywhere else in the body, including the brain. This is often the mysterious and undiagnosed cause of infections in the teeth and gums, bones, prostate, bladder and sinuses.
  • With the formation of antibodies, the food antigens that leak across the gut wall can sometimes resemble the natural antigens on tissues. Protective antibodies will then attack the antigens, as they should and the tissues, causing further damage.

It is the very reason why auto-immune diseases begin. Lupus, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, myocarditis, iritis and thyroiditis are some of the members of this ever-growing category of mysteriously incurable auto-immune diseases.

BLAAS WAT LEK BY TROETELDIERE

1. Inleiding
Troeteldier uriene ruik sleg en is uit ‘n higiëniese oogpunt nie wenslik nie. Uriene in die huis kan weens ‘n gedragsprobleem wees of dit kan ‘n siekteteken wees wat behandel moet word.

2. Faktore van belang
Die spiere van die blaaswand en –klep word met ouderdom swakker en daarom is ouer diere meer geneig om uriene “uit te lek” as hulle slaap. ‘n Ou dier kan soms ook nie gou genoeg opstaan nie of wil nie sy warm slaapplek verlaat nie.

2.1 ‘n Oorvol blaas lei dan tot ‘n lekkasie van uriene. Dit kan ‘n gedragsprobleem wees en die hond moet gereeld uitgeneem word na buite.

2.2 Sterilisasie: Dit is natuurlik dat uriene ook lek by sterilisasie. Daar is baie gou ‘n verbetering indien die teef met vroulike hormone behandel word. Sulke pille is by veeartse beskikbaar en die dosis word slegs een keer per week toegedien. Oordosering met die pille kan veroorsaak dat u teef al die tekens toon van ‘n teef op hitte. Sy kan selfs reunhonde lok. Maak dus seker dat u die instruksies noukeurig volg.

2.3 Sleg-ruikende uriene: Nog ‘n oorsaak van uriene wat erg ruik, is blaas- of nierontsteking. In vele gevalle is dit die irritasie van die kanaal wat veroorsaak dat die hond dikwels klein hoeveelhede uriene uitdruk. Die slegte reuk word veroorsaak deur bakterieë wat in die blaas of niere groei. Daar is net een soort behandeling vir nier- en blaasontsteking, en dit is met antibiotika.

2.4 Nier- en blaasontsteking is baie ernstig, want dit kan tot permanente skade lei. Blaas- en nierstene kom voor by honde en in ‘n vroeë stadium is dit nie baie pynlik nie.

2.5 Kanker wat aan die binnewand van die blaas groei, kan ook ‘n lekkasie veroorsaak.

3. Nierstene
Daar was in die verlede geglo dat die inname van te veel kalsium die ontwikkeling van nierstene verhoog, aangesien die meeste nierstene bestaan uit kalsiumoksalaat. Daar bestaam egter sterk bewyse wat aandui dat lae-kalsium diëte verbind kan word met ‘n hoër risiko van blaas- en nierstene en dat verhoogde kalsium ironies genoeg ‘n laer risiko meebring. Die redes hiervoor lê waarskynlik by die suurgehalte van die uriene.

4. Ander soorte nierstene
Ander soorte nierstene is struwiet (magnesium-, ammonium- en fosfaatbevattende stene), uriensuur, kalsiumfosfaat of sistien (slegs aangetref by sistinurië). Die vorming van struwietstene word verbind met die teenwoordigheid van bakterieë wat ureum afbreek, gewoonlik Proteus mirabilis (ook Klebsiella, Serratia, Providencia spesies) wat ureum kan afbreek na ammoniak, wat ‘n gunstige omgewing skep vir die vorming van struwiet.

‘n Gebrek aan die proteïen “calgranulin” word gereken is die oorsaak vir die vorming van kalsiumoksalaatstene.
