Man, it’s Day 628 since July 31, 2014. It was 11 and a half months ago I started pectin enzyme on Day 313. Apple tree bark gets it moving out even faster with pectin enzyme. Soon it will be 1 3/4 years since the beginning. Our protocol is coming together, but there is no bark available. Leaves will do in a pinch though. Deer prefer them. They’re plant fibre too, and even the small leaf stems. China and India have some apple peel derived extracts, but I know for sure the leaves work second to none as a bug anthelmintic to kick the helminths out of all your old bug bites.
Apple polyphenols are soluble in ethanol, which sounds fun. The testing could be anyway. I tried apple leaves in wormwood Absinthe but the result was way too powerful when I had a lot of worms. The worms attacked back somehow electrically. It was 70% alcohol, but you could dilute it with whiskey or wine. Ahh, the good old days after the first hundred worms or so. I was naive to the whole body of apple polyphenol work and confirmed properties. Anthelmintic wasn’t and still isn’t one of them, except here. The polyphenols in the leaves were responsible for the feeling of well being where I felt better every day. A couple tablespoons of cut apple tree bark is a little too much I found for a day. The power may vary. It may also be partly an antidepressant I took that didn’t really work. It was Wellbutrin to try and quit smoking. It gave me an uneasy feeling if anything, but makes cigarettes taste bad. Cigarettes are the most powerful antidepressant ever. The too quick biofilm wave may also have caused it from too much apple bark at once. The uneasy feeling could have been hyperglycemia.
Removing bark though. Here is using soda in a sand blaster. Here is a little tamer, using a drawknife, but how to do it with twigs? Whittling is even too much for the small ones. I’ll just blender them I guess, or could put a rasp spinning on a drill to rub them against. I could try my old carrot peeler. The bark is great medicine too. I’m chewing some of my own Antonovka whittlings now. They’re saved ones dried out from the fall, but would be a lot easier and tastier if fresh I bet. A box cutter is a good whittler for the small branches. I’ll have to try that carrot and potato peeler on bigger fresh ones. There goes another bark biofilm loogie. Bromelaine imparts a pineapple taste to it. You have to be mindful of too much bark reducing and dissolving too much biofilm at once I am starting to think after nibbling my whittlings. Glad to have a reference to see how my bark works though. It is also powerful yet in subtle different ways slightly. The bark tastes sweeter than the leaves for sure, and the power is comparable with a lot less bark. Only a couple inches of a 5/16″ branch would equal a half teaspoon of store bought stuff. Cool. This was from the 2015 test tree that produced the grapefruit apples.
I am not going to advocate Permethrin clothing any more unless absolutely necessary as PPE. There could be a link to high autism rate in children of military families. The commonality there is Permethrin battle dress uniforms. 30% DEET is not great either, melts plastic like watches, but is better than nothing. Apple leaves blow them all out of the water once you see what happens. You become your own anti arthropod vector worm repellent. Some arthropods give all too. If they still have a nematode, it drills them like a large bullet. Personally, I guess I’ll just stay the course. What can you do? We used to be able to start a small fire and the bugs would fly through and burn themselves up. Now they can’t do that any more due to forest fire risk. Permethrin has its uses dealing with wasp and tick areas though. They ignore the health risks in AFPMB TG-36 since the alternative is worse.
Now they will not let you smoke even. That was a saving grace in mosquitoville. They would keep their distance. Now they all save money on smoking and hat sizes from microencephaly with Zika. Bugs generally don’t like smoking. Apple leaves are a real surprise attack on them with a bitter pill to swallow. Yet I still try to quit smoking with the Wellbutrin. Bugs and smokes. Life of an old geoscience guy. Apple polyphenols are the closest thing you can get to a rewind. They are in the bark, leaves, and peels in varied amounts, but generally more concentrated than in the fruit.
I’m watching a spider build a window web. I suppose they get the vector nematode from other biting insects they catch in it. I imagine the odd wayward mites and ticks get tangled in it along with all the flying vectors. That’s just one source of how they get the worms in them. Spider stings will have nematodes hiding in them too. You can find it all out with the leaves. Now since I am rambling away here, Samuel Clemens’ pen name was lifted from a water mark on the side of a steam boat to show how the load was balanced; “Mark Twain.” All sorts of interesting little facts. Back on topic, bark from twigs is enough. You don’t need much as you get more sensitive to it as well. The big takeaway is the biofilm melt acceleration properties, and dealing with herx swelling and circulation in the extremities, not to mention digestion, or it seems to be. Count me as taking a break from that for a little bit. At least I know the comparative properties of it now. I have another small nematode exit above my left ear. I’ll guess that the bark is doing it like the leaves. The trouble is the large variation of bark and leaves, but in general they possess the same properties.
The supply is limited for the documented anti ageing properties, and relief for male pattern baldness. I think those nematodes rob keratin for use in their biofilm and tumors. The big one for me was definitely internal, which is also been extensively documented for digestive enhancement properties. That keeps the the apple polyphenol supply short internationally. Grow a tree this arbour week, and make sure it is an apple. Antonovka works well straight from the rootstock or seed, since it grows true from seed, a rare occurrence in genus Malus. You may not like the apple you get without grafting to it, but the leaves and bark will be good to go for the anthelmintic and thus anti ageing properties. That seems to be the main draw that keeps the bark in short supply. Leaves and ethanol extracts of leaves, bark, and peels you can do yourself then. Just don’t denude it while it grows. You don’t need that much and hopefully the prunings can keep you going.
Here is an anthelmintic property candidate: Procyanidin in apple tree fibres. Procyanidins are found in grapes, cocoa, maritime pine bark, red wine, and a lot of other holistic treatments/cures. They do not smoke out the bug helminths though. It must be something particular to the apple tree which does that. Everybody is focussed on the polyphenols in apple skin, and forgot the bark and the leaves which may contain much larger spectra and quantities of it.Then there is the Plant Defence mechanism to herbivores, like us, or inparticular, insect parasites. That would explain why they are acaricidal, killing bugs that bite you or the tree. It seemingly transfers to the animal that safely consumes it. You can see from the link that plants can sense being touched this way. It is a component of many vascular plants defending against sap sucker parasites and such. There is also a role in promoting seed dormancy. Leaves and bark are edible to a point. They have a limit like discovered yesterday with the bark.
The apple bark somehow is breaking residual biofilm down better in conjunction with bromelain. The nematode parasitic force used the biofilm to protect its food farm. The mucus viscosity is reduced. The bark seems to have a more powerful biofilm breaking effect. Higher phloridzin content may be involved there. It will be interesting to see the apple peel extract effect when it gets here, 80% polyphenolic content. I will be able to feel what that translates to versus natural leaves. China can be a bulk source, but the quality issues in bulk can be a known problem. Malus hupensis Chinese Tea Crabapple is a large source of apple fruit, bark, and leaf polyphenols. You can bump the volume of the anthelmintic harvest leaves with it though, having the best of both worlds. Then you can see every infected bug bite you have ever had. I proved it myself.
The overarching longevity promotion factor is biolfilm reduction once the worms making it are gone. All these enzymatic processes help that. It’s the stuff underlying all chronic diseases of humans. Super chronic Lyme gave me a unique first hand perspective. Using apple leaves to skunk the worms out was a key step to getting rid of it. I can only hope the apple polyphenols can speed the break down of it up as well as the raw cut bark seems to.
I suspected the phage theory could scare those worms out due to Felix d’Herelle’s gravitation to areas like Georgia east of the Black Sea where both apple and quince are also native. I am chewing a little bit of twig bark pondering it here. That is phage central, also another rare thing.
