Fantastic Read about Gut Microbiome

Hi everyone, I couldn't recommend more the book of Alanna Collen, 10% Human: How Your Body's Microbes Hold the Key to Health and Happiness Paperback – Illustrated, May 10, 2016 more on this subject. I learned more in one read, than I did over many, many years of putting pieces of the puzzle together.

Fermented Foods (Kefir, Sauerkrat, and fermented pickles) for High Blood Pressure

Hey Everyone,

I have a story of extreme High Blood Pressure (over 200) and how I corrected it within 15 days, returning it to a good healthy range of 117/73. If you find yourself in a situation where you suddenly have high blood pressure where you had never before I suggest you look for outside influences that might have caused the situation. Let me tell you my story and let you draw your own conclusions.

I am a 53 year old healthy male. I do not take any medications and am proactive with my health. I believe that nutrition (from whole food sources not vitamins from bottles which a very high number on the market are of a synthetic nature and just don't work) is the key to good health. When a problem occurs with my health the first thing I do is sign onto Earthclinic and look for solutions based on a whole foods approach. By whole foods I mean as close to grown from the earth as possible. This means herbs, roots, food based vitamins/minerals, spices, vegetables, wheatgrass, (and so many more) and products made from these).

So last year I had some dental problems which necessitated numerous rounds of antibiotics - 3 rounds of amoxicillin and one round of penicillin over the course of a year. I had a recurring infection in a front tooth. I did not want a root canal instead I opted for an implant and was using the year to save up for the procedure. I foolishly thought that antibiotics could handle any flare ups until I could get the procedure done.

When I went into the specialist to get the implant he checked my blood pressure as he would have to put me under to do the implant. At that moment he bluntly told me that he would not do the implant and that I needed to see my doctor immediately. If I did not, I could suffer a heart attack or stroke at any moment. He went on to say my blood pressure was over 200, well in the danger zone. He refused to do the implant until I was on medication and my blood pressure was in the normal range.

I left the dentist office in shock. I had never had high blood pressure. As soon as I got home I got on Earthclinic looking for help. I found a post on how one cup of Kefir (fermented yogurt drink) every day could help lower your high blood pressure and that a compromised gut biome from taking too many antibiotics could cause a wide range of health issues one being high blood pressure.

By gut biome I mean the healthy microbes and bacteria in your gut that helps you break down food and assimilate it for the body's health. At this point I was willing to try anything. I did not want to go on any medication. I decided I would do a test to see if kefir and fermented food in general would work in lowering my blood pressure. I purchased an inexpensive blood pressure monitoring cuff from Amazon for around $25 and headed to Walmart to purchase some kefir (in the refrigerated yogurt section) and a health food market to get some fermented Sauerkraut and fermented pickles (because they are fermented - I.e. live foods - fermented sauerkraut and pickles must be refrigerated. You'll find them in the refrigerator section of a health store where they sell pickles).

I figured the more fermented food the better. I would drink one cup of kefir in the morning, eat 1/2 cup sauerkraut at lunch and dinner (twice a day), eat 1-2 pickles for snacks, and drink one ounce of the fermented sauerkraut and/or fermented pickle juice a day (fermented juice is loaded with probiotics). One word about sauerkraut, I am not a fan of many of the brands on the market except one - I'm not sure I can say the name on earthclinic but it is one word, begins with B, and is seven letters. I found this brand to be very tasty. They also make the fermented pickles, just as tasty).

The experiment was simple. I would consume the fermented foods in the proscribed manner mentioned above and check my blood pressure every morning before any food or coffee. I didn't notice any change in my blood pressure until around the 5th day. That day it dropped two points. and from there it rapidly dropped. After 15 days my blood pressure was 117/72 in the healthy good range.

I continued with the routine for another two weeks then weaned myself off the kefir. I still eat one 1/2 cup of sauerkraut or one pickle or drink one ounce of fermented juice a day as a good health routine. It has been a year since doing this and I feel so much better. I find I sleep better, have less stress, less depression, and a higher overall sense of well-being. I just had a full doctor's checkup with full blood work and everything came back excellent.

The doctor gave me a clean bill of health. So get out there and try fermented foods - they do work.

Hi young lady, I just read your story with Serrapeptase, I must say that is so dangerous to take that much more dosage than is required, it is not wise, I hope you have learn your lesson and the pains have subsided. Take dosages only of supplements you know such as in Orthomolecular medicines, there you can take mega doses but you still have to know it's safe and you didn't, you chose to gamble with your life. I wouldn't advise you to post dangerous comments because others may elect to repeat your mistake and pay the price. Good luck.

I was reading up on serrapeptase and first read 2 stories by users of the pill, then I read the horrible story about another that had high hopes on his Artery Plaque blockage being removed but unfortunately, it didn't help him. As a fair and objective person, I would say that one shoe size does not fit all and so he tried to no avail. There is no reason to bad mouth the product or messenger, they did the best they could, so did earth clinic, they all wanted you to succeed, I am sorry. Have you ever been helped by viewing this site? My son has had similar problems with different medicines, so I continue the search. It's been a few years, I hope you're doing well. Joseph

Put a quarter to a half tsp of animal fat (lard, salmon oil etc.) in your mouth with the oregano oil. I like to use butter. Yogurt or sour cream may work too but I haven't tried it. The oregano won't burn your mouth when mixed with a bit of animal fat.

Hey Steve, have you happened to try the Diamond G Forest turpentine from the States before? If so I'm curious as to how the taste and smell of the Bio-Option compares to the Diamond G Forest one.

If you are still using the Bio-Option turpentine and know others who have used the Bio-Option turpentine with no issues (other than the expected Herxheimer reactions), please let me know. I was looking to source the Diamond G Forest turpentine, but shipping and customs charges is a blockade right now.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Joseph! If you've read many of the recent posts and comments, you probably know what I'm going to say - colloidal silver. Low concentration, a teaspoon at a time.

Just based on what I've been seeing over the pasts couple of weeks, with regard to testimonials, rather than journal articles, It doesn't appear to matter all that much regarding the quality, how it's made or even how concentrated it is as people have been curing all sorts of diseases since long before "the blue man"..

I would stick with low concentrations simply because it appears they work as well if not better than higher concentrations, which makes sense to me as it's actually a trace mineral that would have been acquired through food and water, all over the world, back in our wilder, barefoot days - I.e. prehistory.

If I had issues, I would take a teaspoon of 10ppm 3 or 4 times per day, swishing it around in the mouth for a minute or so before swallowing.

I purchased some, first, and used that externally and around the house before I knew I was going to purchase a generator but, based on others reports, regarding reversing cancers, MS and rheumatoid arthritis from way back.

I had already received my generator before coming across an old video of a super simple way of making it, but I don't regret it as it runs on AC in a specific and consistent manner so I don't even have to think about it but if I hadn't already purchased one, I'd have purchased a bunch of rechargeable, lower current 9 volt batteries and be making it with one of those with fine silver wires hooked onto the terminals, being careful to keep them apart, for 1 hour, 8 oz of distilled water at a time and, taking a teaspoon several times per day and I would expect those 8 ounces to last me a week and when things started shifting, I might back off and continue in search of a "sweet spot".

I don't mix treatments but I also don't consider the regular ingestion of cayenne a treatment and, besides, colloidal silver has shown no signs of interfering with other treatments whether natural or allopathic which is only natural as it is actually a nutrient.

I also don't consider a castor oil "belly rub of happiness" a treatment - just because it feels so dang good. So I'd do that, as well, and, in fact, I DO do that whenever I think about it and have a few minutes to just relax - and I do that just because I want to.

When I said in another post that "Some have reported little, slow, or no effect until they started swishing.", I was talking about colloidal silver but the reports of better efficacy with swishing have been for a variety of problems - not just for teeth or mouth issues. Apparently, it just works better when you swish it a minute or so before you swallow it which makes sense because it could go straight to the blood stream without passing through the gut while you're swishing so, not only would it be getting to the blood stream to clear up infection anywhere in the body but you'd also be getting more of it, as it would be distributed before the gut got hold of it.

ANYway - for all issues. Not just mouth and teeth issues. As I said, some have reported that if they don't swish, it doesn't work as well. Noticeably.

Plus I'm talking about 10ppm - which I cut with a little water because my very first batch turned out to be 15 ppm but I'm just going to add another pint of distilled water so I'll have a quart and a half of 10ppm instead of just a quart, which should last more than a month, doing it twice per day. Once in the morning and once before bed.

PLUS you can brush your teeth with it! And it will stop bleeding gum, clear up gingivitis - which, apparently, gets passed on to the heart - and all that other jolly "rot" - if you'll pardon the pun. Of course, I don't think I'd swallow what I brushed my teeth with...just what I gargled with and I'm wondering if one swished and gargled and brushed one's teeth for like 2 minutes, altogether, whether one would even need to swallow it.

Plus, I suspect that even those who don't believe in colloidal silver would still like it as a mouthwash and get some good benefit from it.

Anyway, I can't say that this is my last rave about colloidal silver but I'll try to keep it down.

Dear Prioris - re your advice to retire OTC (over the counter) Wisdom and to take Prescription meds unless they can't get access:

My response: With medical appointments being MONTHS and MONTHS out, and if covered, maybe they did what they needed/could afford to do &/or didn't have to wait & maybe die for, and lived long enough to maybe or maybe no longer need to get your 'approved' Prescription enzymes.

EC: ???

Prioris was mentioning home remedies like blackstrap molasses, not OTC, and specifically helpful enzyme supplements that are thought to help dissolve blood clots. These enzymes are NOT prescription, they can be bought in any health food store or online.

When using essential oils and diffusers - PLZ Watch out for pets.

Some oils are quite toxic to cats (more so) and dogs too, apparently. New warnings being issued by vets, not to be ignored.

I'd personally love to try the lavender mixed in with coconut oil but my pets LOVE love coconut oil (they try to 'clean' my legs and arms) but the lavender is a big toxin to them. So, I hardly every diffuse anymore but if I do, it's from a different room, blowing a small fan on the mist, and only for an hour.

If you are posting to help other people, stating your mass and the amount of D3 along with your 25 hydroxy levels would help more than general statements.

The cause of Kidney damage directly is not D3 as Healthy kidneys are rich with vitamin D receptors and play a major role in turning vitamin D into its active form.

The problem with taking high levels of D3 is that it causes hypercalcemia. This can be avoided by increasing levels of K2 (menaquinone -7) which takes calcium out of the blood and soft tissues placing it where it needs to be, bones, etc.
