Dietary sources of thiocyanate prevent the worst symptoms of sickle cell anemia. If you eat a diet rich in thiocyanate most people will have infrequent painful symptoms and reduced pain when symptoms occur.
Dietary Sources of Thiocyanate:
- African yam
Herbal Medicine to Treat Sickle Cell Anemia:
- Wormseed, Jesuit’s tea, Mexican-tea (Chenopodium ambrosioides)
- Anamu (Petiveria alliacea)
Dietary Sources of Vitamin C will Help Prevent Painful symptoms of Sickle Cell Anemia:
- Rose Hips
- Wheatgrass (wheatgrass also helps the body create healthy blood cells)
- Beets (Beets help the body to create healthy blood cells)
Dietary Vitamin C is not Just Ascorbic Acid:
Ascorbic Acid has it place in short term acute use, but is not recommended for long term use.
Dietary Vitamin C Has these fractional components:
- Ascorbic Acid
- Factor J
- Factor K
- Factor P
Manufactured Vitamin C (Vitamin C Supplements) has only this component:
- Ascorbic Acid
Ascorbic Acid when alone, kills healthy gut bacteria. The ascorbic acid in supplements is often derived from corn starch, corn sugar, or rice starch, and is chemically dependent upon volatile acids.
It shouldn’t surprise anyone that synthetic or processed vitamins either don’t work as expected or are probably bad for you with long term use.
The best way to get a vitamin you need is by finding the spice, tea, vegetable, or fruit that has the most of the vitamin you are looking for and consume it in moderation.
Sugar Blocks the Absorption of Dietary Vitamin C:
Sugar blocks the absorption of dietary vitamin C. Make an effort to get dietary vitamin C in your diet without sugar being in your stomach or in the food item being consumed. The secondary problem is that for Vitamin E to be absorbed by the body Vitamin C must be available. The last problem is that manufactured Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is only one part of the molecule to dietary vitamin C (the outer coating).
DHA transport activity in both GLUT1 and GLUT3 was inhibited by 2-deoxyglucose, D-glucose, and 3-O-methylglucose among other hexoses while fructose and L-glucose showed no inhibition. Inhibition by the endofacial inhibitor, cytochalasin B, was non-competitive and inhibition by the exofacial inhibitor, 4,6-O-ethylidene-alpha-glucose, was competitive. Expressed mutant constructs of GLUT1 and GLUT3 did not transport DHA.
- Most fruits can have 3 types of sugar: fructose, glucose, and sucrose.
- Sucrose gets broken down by the body to about 50% glucose and 50% fructose.
- High fructose corn syrup has about 55% fructose and 45% glucose.
Glyphosate (Roundup) in our food chain blocks the absorption of Vitamin C
- Glyphosate chelates important minerals (iron, cobalt, manganese; glyphosate was in fact patented as a mineral chelator)
- decimates the microflora and its ability to produce essential amino acids like tryptophan that converts to serotonin
- disrupts the microbiome in the intestine, by disrupting the shikimate pathway, causing a decrease in the ratio of beneficial to harmful bacteria
- inhibition of pituitary release of thyroid stimulating hormone
- Drink Dandelion root tea
- Eat Radishes
- use infrared sauna for sweating out toxins (go outside and sweat doing a fun activity in the sun 9-12 minutes)
- consume probiotic foods and probiotic supplements to repopulate the microbiota which glyphosate destroys
- eat organic foods rich in sulfur and manganese
- avoid using Roundup
- avoid animal products such as milk or meat for which GMO foods were used to feed the animals
- eat organic foods as much as possible
