Modified Citrus Pectin: Natural Treatment for Lyme Disease
DISCLAIMER: CONSULT WITH A DOCTOR BEFORE DECIDING ON A TREATMENT PLAN FOR ANY DISEASE OR INJURY.
What is Modified Citrus Pectin?
Modified Citrus Pectin is a form of pectin that’s present in many fruits including plums, citrus fruits, and apples. It is a particular chain of pectic and pectinic acid that the digestive system is not able to easily absorb. So when people take Modified Citrus Pectin to naturally treat Lyme Disease or autoimmune disease, it must be chemically changed through the digestive process to turn into something that can be absorbed into the bloodstream.
What are the Medicinal Benefits of Modified Citrus Pectin?
Modified Citrus Pectin offers the following medicinal benefits:
- Safely removes heavy metals from the body (lead, mercury, arsenic) without removing essential minerals that the body needs.
- Targets systemic inflammation by blocking pro-inflammatory proteins.
- Enhances the immune system.
- Removes toxins that might make Lyme Disease symptoms worse.
- Ferments to form butyric acid, a substance that can prevent or treat Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, and other inflammatory bowel diseases.
- Removes biofilm.
How can Modified Citrus Pectin be used to treat Lyme Disease naturally?
Modified Citrus Pectin is a supportive treatment that can be used to remove toxins from the body. Some experts believe that Modified Citrus Pectin can form a protective lining inside the intestines that helps prevent constipation. It does not provide immediate relief from constipation, but as a prebiotic fiber that also helps break up biofilm, Modified Citrus Pectin can help relieve the digestive discomforts associated with Lyme Disease.
How to Use Modified Citrus Pectin as an Herbal Treatment for Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, and Other Inflammatory Bowel Diseases
Modified Citrus Pectin ferments to form butyric acid, a substance that’s vital to digestive health. Normally, healthy bacteria like Clostridium butyricumin produce butyric acid in the gut, but if a person doesn’t have enough of these bacteria, serious digestive issues can develop including ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, and even colorectal cancer.
Butyric acid has the abilty to bind mutagens which may be one of the root causes of inflammatory bowel diseases. But in the final segment of the large intestine, the butyric acid released by Modified Citrus Pectin also promotes intestinal motility and healthy bowel movements.
Butyric Acid is present in the diet in butter, ghee, and animal fats as well as in healthy plant oils.
Modified Citrus Pectin as a Natural Treatment for Degenerative Disease
Modified Citrus Pectin has the ability to inactivate galectin-3, a compound that serves as a biomarker for several degenerative diseases including:
- Liver fibrosis
- Heart failure
- Kidney disease
In other words, the presence of galectin-3 may actively participate in the growth of cancer and in the development of other severe degenerative diseases. Studies have shown that galectin-3 expression increases cancer cell growth, invasion, and the adhesion of cancer cells to blood vessel lining. It also facilitates communication between cancer cells to help them adhere to each other more rapidly, multiply more rapidly, and metastasize away from the original tumor.
Modified Citrus Pectin as a Natural Treatment for Heart Disease
Galectin-3 is another major player in the development of heart disease. It is a biomarker both for fibrosis, inflammation, and for heart failure. Patients who have been hospitalized for heart failure and have high levels of Galectin-3, are more likely to have recurrent heart failure and hospital readmission within 30 days, according to studies. These patients also have 3 times the odds of readmission within 90 days.
Studies have shown that Modified Citrus Pectin can reduce cardiac fibrosis
Modified Citrus Pectin Dosage:
Take up to 5000 mg 3 times per day.
