Q&A: Is Black Seed Oil Making Me Feel Fatigued?

| April 8, 2018 | 0 Comments

Q: Hi Roby, I recently started taking Blackseed oil, and has made me feel fatigued and exhausted. Is that normal?

Dr. Fitt: When I initially converted from allopathic to Intelligent Design medicine, I got really irritated by women telling me they felt “toxic”. One reason was that I had no physiologic reference for “toxic”. We weren’t taught “toxic” in medical school. The other reason is I don’t like talking about feelings 😜.

This was before I started referring back to the “bible” of human physiology, Guyton’s Textbook of Medical Physiology. Most medical doctors have not read this book, some never heard of it. It was required reading in my Ph. D. work under the chairman of the Department of Physiology at Texas Tech University School of Medicine, Peter Pang Ph. D. D. Sc.  Referring back to this book, I found out about cytokines (AKA lymphokines).
Cytokines are produced by immune cells as a defense against critter overgrowth. You’re always producing a maintenance amount of cytokines because at your healthiest, your human cells are outnumbered 10:1 by bacteria alone. Cytokine production revs up if indigenous critter numbers go up (overgrowth), if there is invasion by a critter not normally found in man (infection), or if proteins are not fully digested and cross the gut lining into the bloodstream (allergies).

Below is a non-exhaustive list of cytokines, your immune system’s weapons of mass destruction. Your immune system is Intelligent Design at the most awesome level. It’s production of these cytokines that cause all the symptoms of viral illnesses and most of the symptoms associated with bacterial and fungal illnesses. It’s cytokines that cause: fever, aches, chills, redness, swelling, cough, diarrhea, runny nose, fatigue, skin rashes, itching, etc. It’s cytokines that destroy blood vessels and cause death from Ebola. It’s cytokines that destroy lung tissue to cause death from the flu. It’s cytokines that cause anaphylactic shock.

When you have Candida overgrowth, Candida produces immune system poisons called “gliotoxins”. Gliotoxins compromise the function of T cells and macrophages–your “ground troops” in the war called inflammation. They get taken out of the fight. When you take a powerful anti-fungal like black seed oil or do any intervention that kills Candida, T cells and macrophages bounce back–with a vengeance. Detox is the taking names and kicking ass blow-back that happens when these cells recover. Detox means your body is in the process of healing.


Common Detox Symptoms And What They REALLY Mean


In the natural health and raw food movement, the concept of detox refers to the process your body goes through when it expels toxins. This process usually occurs during a cleanse or fast – such as a juice fast.

When you do a detox cleanse, your body is said to suddenly release built up toxins all at once, causing a host of unpleasant symptoms referred to as “detox”.

These symptoms might include skin breakouts, gas and bloating, body aches, brain fog, fatigue, low energy, headaches, irritability, extreme cravings (for sweet, salty or other unhealthy foods), constipation and diarrhea.

It’s a miserable experience for many, and if you are reading this page right now, you’re probably looking for some relief.
