Seriously an Astounding view.

Ours Bananas are blooming 😍😍🍌

🍌🌼 Did you know that banana flower isn’t just a beautiful part of the plant, but it’s also a delicious and nutritious ingredient?

In Sri Lanka, it’s transformed into mouthwatering dishes like vazhaipoo (stir-fry) and keselmuwa (curry), showcasing its versatility. But that’s not all! Banana flower can also be turned into a tea, serving as a nutritional supplement.

The flavor is a delightful blend of slight sweetness and a flowery note, but be sure to remove the bitter sap between the petals before cooking. Soaking them in lemon water can help!

Remember, like the fruit, the flower’s leaves are sensitive to air and can turn brown or black, so keep those layers intact until you’re ready to use them.

And here’s the bonus: banana flower is a fiber-rich powerhouse, loaded with essential minerals like potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc, and copper. A true hidden gem of the culinary world! 🌱🍽

Elderberries—A Source of Bioactive Compounds with Antiviral Action 10/02/2023

Respectively Elderberry is a Immune stimulant that is antiviral & antimicrobial in nature .

The Benefits of Elderberry
- study below is
directly from the NIH
“National Institute of Health “


First of all, we are talking about flavonoids and polyphenolic components with antiviral, antimicrobial and immune-stimulating effects, proven in numerous in vitro and in vivo studies [35,38,42,43,52,53,54,55].

Kaempferol flavonoid and quercitin from elderberries are cited as having an effect against HSV-1 virus [52].

Coronavirus Antiviral activity against human coronaviruses has also been shown for Sambucus polyphenols in laboratory studies [5,6].

Studies have also indicated that the effectiveness of elderberries against infection may also be due to immune stimulation [39,62,74].

Sambucus nigra flavonoids are able to prevent the virus from entering host cells, preventing the pathogenesis of the flu. Moreover, agglutination of Sambucus nigra flavonoids stops influenza infection by competitively inhibiting the virus and subsequently by endocytosis [37].

The results of the included studies suggest that S. nigra fruit preparations (in extract or lozenen) may reduce influenza-like symptoms, including fever, headache, nasal congestion and nasal mucosal secretion in adults, when taken within 48 h of onset of symptoms. In 2–4 days of treatment with S. nigra, most adult participants showed a significant reduction in symptoms, averaging 50%. Evidence of the effectiveness of S. nigra fruit on cough is currently unclear and inconsistent.

In a review of five clinical trials involving 936 adults, Harnet et al. [51] show that preparations obtained from elderberries can reduce the duration and severity of respiratory viral infections if given within 48 h of disease onset. The results included in this review come mostly from clinical trials in which participants were given short-term commercial formulations of S. nigra fruit for up to 16 days.

Elderberries—A Source of Bioactive Compounds with Antiviral Action In the current context, when more and more unknown pathogens appear, healthy eating and supplementing it with natural products play an increasingly important role in maintaining the health of the body. The European black elder (Sambucus nigra), found ...

As a Nurse, and Christian my passion remains
root cause medicine
- here is some Important content / 411


The problem with doctors not understanding MTHFR:

When doctors were in medical school they only studied genetic mutations that where known to actually cause a SINGLE disease or problem.

*...HLA B27...associated with Ankylosing Spondylosis
*...Cystic Fibrosis [CFTR]… caused by specific gene mutations
*...Some disorders are autosomal RECESSIVE [you need two copies to be affected]
*...Some Genetic disorders are powerful autosomal DOMINANT and one copy is enough to cause disease. In Huntington's disease the HTT mutation that causes Huntington disease involves a DNA segment known as a CAG trinucleotide repeat and its penetrance varies.

BUT…when it comes to the MTHFR genetic variants C677T and A1298C they do not cause a UNIQUE SINGLE DISEASE.

The MTHFR C677T interferes with the making of L-Methyl folate [5-MTHF] and subsequently the management of Homocysteine and the making and amount of S-AdenosylMethionine [SAMe].

SAMe is the most important methyl donor that the body has to work with. SAMe is required to carry out hundreds of Transmethylation reactions. The number of disorders that the lack of SAMe may contribute to is enormous. The MTHFR variant doesn't just cause ONE problem but its inefficiency can contribute to MANY potential PROBLEMS.

The influence upon the body's many biochemical functions due to biochemical interference will vary from person to person based on the person's:
*...Other genetic variants that may be present
*...Toxins such as heavy metals that may be poisoning different enzymes
*...Infections that the person might be fighting:

There are many chronic and hidden [occult] infections such as the Herpes viruses which are NEVER CLEARED from the body and or Lyme and the many associated co-infections or Mold Toxicity.

An unaffected individual with the MTHFR C677T variant may:
*...have a strong immune system
*...Eats well [excellent diet…eats lots of greens and beans]
*…May not be infected with a tick borne disease or other occult [hidden] infection
*...Not been unduly harmed by toxic heavy metals
*...Not have the HLA Haplotypes that predispose them to not being able to detox MOLD and or Lyme particles etc.

Such an individual with a strong immune system and no heavy metal toxicity may have absolutely NO negative consequences related to their having an MTHFR C677T or A1298C variant.

UNTIL...Somethings go awry:
*...Stress [PTSD/Acute bodily injury/family or personal stress] followed by imbalances in their immune system's function
*...Accumulation of TOXINS over time..."The straw that broke the camel's back", and enzymes that used to work well have gotten poisoned. [I believe this is what Dr. Ben Lynch refers to as “Dirty Genes”.

After a period of time the weakness caused by MTHFR variants [C677T/A1298C] will begin to cause trouble in conjunction with the other problems that have developed over time.

Methyl Groups [-CH3] … why they are important

In general Methyl groups are very stable and consist of a central carbon atom bonded to three hydrogen atoms [-CH3]. Adding on a methyl group maintains DNA, promotes detoxification, enables glutathione production and are essential for balancing hormones and various neurotransmitters.

Methylation or the adding on methyl groups [Me, an alkyl group] is involved in:

* … protecting DNA by locking it up by methylating the cysteine residues. When methyl groups are attached to the cysteine the genes underneath cannot be transcribed and thereby controls the expression of some genes.
Methyl groups are important to epigenetics because they turn genes “on” or “off.” When we have depleted availability of methyl groups:
………. bad genes like cancer causing oncogenes are turned “on”
………. good genes, like cancer preventing tumor suppressor genes, are turned “off”.

PICTURE: Methyl groups on DNA keep a gene protected or locked. Methyl groups bind to cysteine

* … immune function
DNA methylation works together with other epigenetic mechanisms such as histones and microRNA expression to have multiple effects on the immune system, including:
………. T helper lineage fate determination
………. differentiation of memory cells
………. resolution of inflammation
………. control of cellular proliferation


The translational level of genetic information takes place at the ribosomes.

Robosomes are made of RNA and protein and they organize translation and catalyze the reaction that joins amino acids to make a long protein chain coded for by the genome.

MicroRNAs are short non-coding RNA transcripts that are 18 to 24 nucleotides long that regulate gene expression at the translational level [at the ribosomes].

* … Detoxing many molecules via the use of many TRANSMETHYLATION ENZYMES found in the Liver for PHASE TWO CONJUGATION DETOX and elsewhere in the body. Methylation helps clear many endogenous compounds such as hormones.

* … Methylation is necessary for cell division … because it governs progression through cell division. The chemical modification of DNA by methyl groups is involved in the regulation of gene expression by controlling access to the correct DNA sequence.

* … Synthesis of bases for DNA and RNA

* … Development of the central nervous system by way of the synthesis of neurotransmitters and the formation of the protective myelin sheath that covers many nerves.

* … Methylation and phospholipids ... “As the phospholipids are successively methylated, they are translocated from the inside to the outside of the membrane. When catecholamine neurotransmitters, lectins, immunoglobulins or chemotaxic peptides bind to the cell surface, they stimulate the methyltransferase enzymes and reduce membrane viscosity.”

Membrane viscosity is the ease with which substances can move through the membrane.

HOMOCYSTEINE and the Methylation Cycle:

* … Homocysteine can be remethylated to form methionine which in turn may be made into SAMe and retained within the “Methylation Cycle”. SAMe is the body’s most important methyl donor.
* … Homocysteine can be converted to cysteine via the “Transsulfuration Pathway”. When the enzyme CBS [Cystathionine Beta Synthase] converts Homocysteine irreversibly down the “Transsulfuration Pathway” the homocysteine is taken away from the “Methylation Cycle” to make cysteine.

DEPRESSION… and biochemistry

Many people are depressed because they lack a sufficient amount of the neurotransmitters needed to maintain a balanced mood. One of the most common biochemical reasons for depression is due to a lack of the reduced forms of folate. Only reduced form of folate can enter the brain. The reduced forms of folate include:
*… Folinic acid [Leucovorin]
*… L-Methyl Folate [5-MTHF]

Some of the folate is made into Tetrahydrobiopterin [BH4] which is the critical cofactor for the making of neurotransmitters such as:
*… Dopamine
*… Norepinephrine
*… Serotonin
It is essential that the brain has adequate amounts of these neurotransmitters to maintain a BALANCED MOOD.

The most common problem with folate metabolism involves genetic variants affecting the enzyme called MTHFR [MethylTetraHydroFolate Reductase].

Fifty percent [50%] of the people in the population possess at least one copy of the most influential MTHFR genetic variants referred to as C677T and A1298C.


The MTHFR A1298C variant adversely affects the reverse direction of the MTHFR enzyme and thus has an adverse influence on the "Folate Cycle".

The "Folate Cycle" influences:

*... BH4
The making of the critical cofactor Tetrahydrobiopterin [BH4] which not only influences the making of NEUROTRANSMITTERS but is also critical for the management of Nitric Oxide [NO] by the enzymes Nitric Oxide Synthase [iNOS. eNOS, nNOS] due to a lack of BH4. When the NOS enzymes lack BH4 this causes oxidative stress and tissue damage.

ACETYLCHOLINE [neurotransmitter]:
TetraHydroBiopterin [BH4] is also involved in the making and function of the neurotransmitter Acetylcholine which is important for LEARNING and many other neurologic functions.

Impaired “Folate Cycle” function also affects the production of DNA bases needed for making our DNA, chromosomes and the faithful transcription of our genes into RNA for delivery of the genetic information from the gene out into the cell's cytosol for the manufacturing of all the proteins the body requires for proper function.

In summary adverse "Folate Cycle" biochemistry affects:
*... Depression
*... Anxiety/Panic
*... Fluctuation of Mood [Bipolar-like]
*... Oxidative Stress... tissue damage
*... Cognitive Difficulties...ADHD, and learning disabilities


The MTHFR C677T variant adversely affects the forward direction of the MTHFR enzyme and thus has a significant influence on the making of Vitamin Methyl-B12 and the conversion of HOMOCYSTEINE into methionine. If this biochemistry doesn't work properly then the person will be at risk for all of the following and more:

*... Not producing insufficient SAMe [S-AdenosylMethionine] which is the body's most important methyl donor, a lack of which has a negative influence on 100's of biochemical processes.

*... The buildup of too much HOMOCYSTEINE which increases blood clotting and harms connective tissue health and much more

*... Or, the buildup of SAH [S-AdenosylHomocysteine] which is what is left over after SAMe has given away its methyl group. Too much SAH blocks many TransMethylation enzymes and their reactions.

For example, when the enzyme Catechol-O-MethylTransferase [COMT] is blocked up by SAH this interferes with the breakdown of Estrogen and Dopamine and other catecholamines. When Dopamine and other neurotransmitters are not inactivated properly then the person can develop feelings of anxiety, jitteriness and even panic. These patients often explain that they feel like they just want to “crawl out of their own skin”.

If a person who is “Sensitive to Methyl Donors” because of a slow COMT and develops too much SAH, then their COMT enzyme cannot inactivate DOPAMINE and the extra Dopamine may then be preferentially made into Epinephrine and Adrenaline. The extra production of Epinephrine and Adrenaline will likely cause the person to develop palpitations and they will feel like they are undergoing a ‘FLIGHT OR FIGHT’ response by their autonomic nervous system even though there is no eminent threat and nothing to be afraid of. This is likely what is happening when a person experiences a “PANIC ATTACK” out of the blue…for apparently NO REASON.

Another example is the potential blockage by SAH involving the enzyme HNMT [Histamine-N-MethylTransferase]. Blockage of the function of the enzyme HNMT causes the inability to inactivate HISTAMINE. When there is too much of a buildup of histamine the person will likely experience excessive allergy symptoms and perhaps aggravation of Mast Cell Degranulation disorder in some people.

COMT and HNMT are just two examples of enzymes affected by either a lack of SAMe and or the presence of too much SAH.

DNA MethylTransferase is another important MethylTransferase enzyme and it is critical for the protection of our DNA [epigenetics]. The consequences of inappropriate DNA methylation could potentially influence the development of cancer and other disorders.

Loving the Stages of Life here on this little farm 🕊️

~ Making the dream work ~


Can’t emphasize this enough!

If i may have the opportunity today to encourage you, I would say

Start small, maybe you want to start a small bee hive,
or start a raised garden bed, you can easily make a brick or rock raised bed area even with little space and with very little money…. Start somewhere, just start !!!
Another very doable wise decision is visiting local farms to buy locally grown fruit to Can your own jamms, jellies and preserves while they’re in prime season will give you the most nutrients available from the fruit.
Simply Having your own fresh vegetables, potatoes, and herbs and then-saving alllll the seeds,
What a sweet reward and awesome experience to learn and grow 🌱
Buy local, invest in your health and the health of your family.
Do what you can….
