This is part of a discussion related to a FB Live Video that I did on June, 30th. related to Turkeys and Humans. You can view the FB Live video in my FB Group, Aromatherapy and Nutritional Related Information. If you aren't a member of that group request membership to watch the video.
Yesterday's Live Video, (June 30, 21). Part 2.
I wanted to go into the other stuff that I made mention of in the part 1 of this deal. As mentioned in Part 1, I was with some people in a ride along doing some diagnostic work with turkeys. I discussed the main points in part1, but in this part I wanted to discuss some observational material.
The main focus here is with the gizzard on the turkeys. As most people know, poultry do not have teeth. They just peck stuff and swallow the stuff that they get in their mouth. It then goes down the pipe line to the organ called the gizzard. Here the food is basically ground up then passed on down the line. They usually have rocks to basically chew their food and the "chewing" is done in the gizzard.
In here I showed how some of these turkeys had taken in some small pieces of wood as well. Since these birds were sick, they are much like humans in a sense. They eat anything that they are driven to eat, with the hope that it might make them feel better. Case in point; some women have been known to eat their couch cushions when experiencing a certain deficiency.
The gizzard is normally a hyper accumulator of Selenium. But as with many crops, many minerals are on the lower side. Since most of the available Selenium is retained by the food crop for it's needs, not much is passed on for uptake by the consumer of the food/plant. But in reality most plants accumulate Selenium, as most plants do not use a whole lot of Selenium, if the soil has a decent amount of Selenium in it. Now at this point I need to deviate a bit,,then i will come back to this point. From all appearances, it does not appear that poultry are effected to the degree as mammals and by extension, humans are by Glyphosate/Roundup. My hypothesis is that since the food consumed by poultry is ground up and initially processed by the organ that is a hyper accumulator of Selenium, that the Selenium that is shed off helps to neutralize the Glyphosate by binding up the Glyphosate so that it doesn't shed off as easy. Plus the highly acidic environment of the gizzard helps to promote a quicker break down of the stuff. It requires a highly acidic setting for the stuff to break down. Another factor here is the length of time the feed, grain in this case, is in the digestive system of the birds. This is likely the most logical perspective. It is not in there for any real length of time, so it doesn't have much time to do a lot of damage and transference across the gut wall. With these domesticated birds, it is almost a constant flow from one end to the other end. That is how fast it moves through their system. Now over on the human side, many people will eat for days without taking a dump of their digestive system. Definitionally not a constant flow through system here, lol. A lot of time to do it's damage. Another factor is that the Glyphosate is in a way ,an antibiotic. Since these turkeys are Organic, fed Organic feed, they don't have the "benefit" of the typical source of antibiotic to help them when they get sick. Plus this "fake" type of antibiotic doesn't help much, just does damage. However, when I say it is an antibiotic, I am really saying that it acts like an antibiotic on several levels.
So how is this deal corrected? The new trend in feeding poultry is to feed then Thyme. This is essentially an Organic form of an antibiotic, to fix the issue after the fact but also to act as a partial pre-antibiotic. Which was a normal feed practice but has been outlawed, since 2017. So to really fix the problem they need to be fed Boron, which is the driving factor in making these other nutrients work as they should and not just do their own thing. The easiest one there for Boron is to use Rosemary essential oil. So if you hear of some one or some company feeding their chickens or any other poultry for that matter, Rosemary leaves, you should have a much more confidence in those birds having been healthy during their complete life span. But both Thyme, ( I prefer to use the Thymol type) and Rosemary ( the 1,8 Cineol type) will go a long way in helping the bird or even human have a healthier life. Most Oregano oils will also help if you can't get the Thyme oil. With Oregano EO's it depends on the Thymol level in them and it's relationship to other components. However, in theory the Selenium should be shutting the respiratory virus's down, but it isn't. Why? In order for the Selenium to work properly it has to be paired with Iodine. If the proper ratio of Iodine and Selenium is not there, and then directed with the proper ratio of Boron, then you won't really get a whole lot of viral protection. Key point here? Since the feed is from the mid-west, notorious for being almost/or totally Iodine deficient, even though it is organic, and since it is likely Boron deficient as well, well.. what does that tell you? Anyway, it tells a person a lot. But pigs are also fed this same type of feed from the same general source. They don't get sick, well they do, but differently. They use Chromium instead of Selenium, for the most part. A whole different setting.
Anyway, hope this gives you some perspective.
