Bacillus Thuringiensis and GMO crops

Bacillus Thuringiensis, also know as BT  is a pesticide (bacteria) that kill their target insect by paralyzing the organisms digestive system, it can also entering the bloodstream and reproduce, causing the entire organism to be infected. BT was discovered in 1901 by a Japanese scientist named Shigetane Ishiwata and has been used as a pesticide since the 1950's.  In its natural form BT is non-toxic to humans, but it is not used that way anymore, instead of BT being sprayed onto crops it is now grown into crops.  Corn, Soy, Broccoli, Cabbage and more all have been alter in this way.  Genetically Modified crops are altered so that the BT is produce throughout the entire plant, so if an insect takes one bite it will die.  Good News?  The Reality of GMO's is, you or someone you know have digestive problems right now, it is not a theory, symptoms relating to partial paralysis of the digestive system and destruction of digestive cells.  Disease like IBS, Leaky Gut Syndrome, Gallbladder infection and stones, Non-Alcoholic fatty liver, and more, are at an all time high.  50 years ago it was rare that you heard of anyone having digestive disease, so what has changed since then?  Bacillus Thuringiensis has changed.  A new study found that BT can infect non-target Mammals, crystal toxins (protein spores crystals) that are produce in the BT's life cycle, are cytotoxic to Red Blood Cells and Bone Marrow Cells.  Now, with this in mind, ask yourself, how do you feel; and be honest, do you have Anemia, GI distress, blood disease like Leukemia, or just low energy.  If so ask your Doctor to check for a possible Bacillus Thuringiensis infection or crystal toxin build up.  Crystal toxins are hemolytic (kills red blood cells), and this disease builds over time and most symptoms go unnoticed until the crystal toxins are at high levels.  Note, there are different types of the Bacillus Thuringiensis species but they may induce the same type of symptoms like GI distress.  I have personally been personally dealing with GI distress for a few years, and relapse is common because of contamination of non-GMO plants.  My symptoms include;
  • dull aching pain left upper abdomen
  • alternating stools in color dark brown/black to light brown, diarrhea to constipation, round balls to long snake like large stools, and very foul smelling.
  • frontal headaches
  • blurred vision
  • lower back pain
  • muscle pain and cramps
  • temperature sensitive
  • swollen lymph glands
Just to name a few...

This is what I have done to lessen the symptoms;
  • buy organic produce by local farmers
  • juice fruits and vegetables
  • use herbs like, chanca piedra (smash crystals), yellow dock (clean and nourish blood), marshmallow (soothe and heal mucus membrane), mugwart (kill micro-organisms), psyllium, plantain, or ragweed (pull debris out of the body).
  • exercise, lots of sweating
  • drink plenty of purified water(neg ion or distilled)
  • use filter for shower
  • and dry brush my skin
It is easy after you get into a routine and once you start feeling better it is all worth it.
