Apple Cider Vinegar, H2O2 Inhalation, Cayenne
[YEA] 08/14/2008: Jim from Stettler, Alberta, Canada: "I have been taking Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) and Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) for about a week now and am amazed. 2Tbls in water 3 times a day and H2O2 spritzed into my throat twice a day - when I remember. Got used to the ACV quickly, the H2O2 still tastes like crap but they are working wonders so I keep on. Had sinus infection for decades and, as a smoker, congested lungs. Both cleared up within a week! Also, pain in right shoulder and left elbow is gone.
Came here to find a solution for a friend's sore throat. Number one cure was Cayenne which she can't take. Two days later I woke with a sore throat so on the way for coffee I stopped at a store and got some Cayenne. Put a 1/4 tsp in my coffee and before I finished the cup, the sore throat was gone. Amazing. Thank you EC for all the help. Next, 5-HTP for chronic depression."
Apple Cider Vinegar, Hydrogen Peroxide
[YEA] 06/11/2009: Bob from Memphis, TN: "I have been doing the h202 inhalation method for about 2 months now. I spray about 3 or 4 times per day, each time about 6 shots. It seems I can breathe deeper when I am working out than previously. I have been taking the ACV for a little bit more than 3 months. I just added the baking soda this week, I read about it over the weekend. I have been doing the h202 therapy food grade in water for 57 days. It took me 50 days to get up to doing 25drops in about 10oz of water 3times per day. It is really horrible tasting stuff but I am not experiencing the metallic after taste you are except right after I drink it. It is kind of a pain because you need to time this stuff. They say drink the h202 1 hour before you eat or 3 hours after you eat.
Here is the schedule I have been using. I drink the h202 and the ACV at the same time around 7am. I don't eat breakfast I drink some protein about an hour later. Around 11am I drink the h202 and ACV again (not mixed together) just 1 right after the other. It will make your stomach a little queezy but it doesn't last long. I eat lunch around 12 or 12:30. I drink the last h202 around 5-6pm and eat an hour or so later. I am doing the ACV only twice per day with 3tablespoons in 8oz of water with 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda. The results I am having are as follows: some part of this makes your skin look really good, quite glowy and youthful. It is making my arthritis worse so I am hoping that is a good thing and it will hopefully subside as I keep doing the therapies. The h202 makes me rather hot feeling and when I workout I sweat more than I ever have before. I hope that is toxins coming to the surface. I feel like this is ridding my body of unwanted toxins that probably have been accumulating over the years. I am 52 and got arthritis of the spine (osteo) in about '03 and I also have it in my right knee and right shoulder. So, in all my research on this sight I decided to try natural remedies to see if I could cure myself of my various ailments. Not a fan of Doctors or the pharmaceutical industry here. I have never tried an arthritis medicine that worked for me, they just upset my stomach really bad and cost a fortune.
Oh, one more thing, I have always had severe allergies in the spring. The pollen here in Memphis April and May is a killer. This year I had absolutely no allergy problems during that time. Usually I stay loaded up on allergy meds till it gets really hot. I am getting ready to add drinking borax in water throughout the day. Trying to rid my body of the metallics which I hear can be a major contributor in arthritis. Anyway, that is my take on this stuff to date. If I can find a natural cure for something that ails ya', I'm all for it. Hope it helps someone out there."
Apple Cider Vinegar, Oil Pulling
[NAY] 07/10/2008: Jackie from Nashville, TN: "I have been trying th ACV and oil pulling for a couple of weeks, and so far, I don't see a difference in anything....energy, allergis, eczema, aches, etc. I am losing hope since everyone else sees the results in a few days. I have been using 2 tbsp ACV in 8 oz grape juice and swishing 2 tbsp of sesame oil"
[YEA] 06/22/2008: Debbie C from Palm Springs, CA: "I had received email from your site some time ago and just left it sitting in the IN box thinking there might be some healthy choices I could make in order to regain my health. Last night I start OP and now am doing more reading n the ACV and Baking Soda. I have known some time about the health benefits of alkaline diet and keeping the body in an alkaline environment.
Like many, I have become lax and lazy in my eating and fitness. I am 60 lbs overweight and my joints ache just about everywhere but especially my fingers. I am 55 years YOUNG and feel 80 some days. I started OP last night with virgin olive oil and SWISHED while I sat in the infrared sauna. This morning I noticed my hands were not as stiff an swollen as they have been these past few days. I am currently SWISHING a mouthful of sesame oil as I check my email. I intend to get some organic ACV and start the plan for the weight loss as well as reintroduce myself to my treadmill. I will keep you posted and become a regular on the site. I am looking forward to getting my life back. Thank you."
Apple Cider Vinegar, Tomato Tea
09/18/2011: Henry from Cary, North Carolina: "I have 2 problems allergies (sinus), and prostate enlargement.
I tried the tomato tea for sinus and the apple cider vinegar for prostate and sinus, so far so good, it is the first day I plan to do it for 2 weeks and see what happens. The tomato tea was not bad, the apple cider vinegar was (organic) ok with water.
Best of all this is not expensive to do.."
Apple Cider Vinegar, Turmeric
[YEA] 07/08/2009: Chris from Dighton, MA: "I use 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in 5 oz. of water per day.
I also use 1 teaspoon of turmeric in 5 oz. of water per day.
I had extreme diarrhea, it has gone away. My stomach upset has gone away.
My blood pressure was 145/90, now it is 120/80.
I had cholesterol of 260. HDL of 42 and LDL of over a hundred. It is now 190 total and a HDL of 89 and LDL of 100.
My lower back pain is gone.
My long distance eye sight has come back and I no longer need glasses.
My tinnitus is still with me though. I am 68 years old."
01/18/2010: Christine from Calgary, Alberta, Canada replies: "Referencing the testimonial about having a 68 yr old man's long distance eyesight regained after ingesting turmeric, I am currently taking 1 Tbsp of turmeric with a heaping Tbsp of ground flaxseed in 500 ml of warm boiled water, morning and night. At night, I also take 1 Tspn of Apple Cider Vinegar with my calcium, magnesium and 5HTP. Am hoping for a broken middle finger's inflammation to subside and for my eyesight to improve. Hopefully, when wearing contact lenses, my dry eye issues will disappear and will no longer cause infection from reoccuring.
Many thanks for the availablility of such valuable information."
10/17/2011: Connie from Slc, Ut: "Hi Mindy L. ; I, for one of many, understand that having so very many conditions at the same time can be disheartening, especially when we've gone through the channels that our medical industry provides. Even though they've realized that nutrition is critical for our survival, they still are a slow moving barge when it comes to considering the patients' symptoms. Also, testing is problematic because doctors accept that the normal range provided is the rigid truth, even when the patient is expressing the obvious symptoms of a vitamin(s) deficiency. The medical industry has really dropped the ball when it comes to treating this most salient deficiency, B12. I still believe, though, that this is more the result of inexperience, rather than malice. ( Although, I do admit that the word malicious could be used to describe the pharmacutical industry. ) You may well know that alot of money can be made from treating these conditions, but you may see, in time, that most of these medications may not be necessary, and may be slowly stopped, in due time. B12 can be very slow-acting, so slow that some symptoms may be forgotten as they wane. It's very hard for people to believe that most of the symptoms listed here may be related to a B12 deficiency, and I agree, but I have had most of these symptoms myself. I even had them with an excellent diet, and excellent B-complex supplements. I finally had to realize that I have some malabsorption difficulty. This type of B12 deficiency can run in families. It is termed, functional, but I don't agree with that.
I suggest that; you may want to get B12 levels tested but don't accept any number less than 500 as normal. Many great researchers and doctors believe that levels should be above 1000 for good health. (Some people keep theirs in the hundreds of thousands. ) I've been able to absorb well the sublingual lozenge of methylcobalamin. It's difficult to find one's individual need ; It may be in the range of 1000-5000 mcg. Daily. With higher amounts, some people may need to increase potassium. B12 is supportive of the uptake of the other B vitamins, many amino acids, and many minerals. I suggest a low dose B-complex with it. Then you may find that adding some extra individual B's may help. For instance, extra B-5 250-500 mgs. Daily may help with depression, fatigue, and constipation. ( B12 also helps. ) B12 will also help with migraines, bleeding, endocrine function, inflammation, and pain. I must repeat that it may take 6 mnths. to a year for some conditions to improve. It doesn't interfere with medications, but take it separately because meds. May interfere with its uptake. Morning is a good time."
[YEA] 01/10/2012: Davey D from Vancouver, Bc, Canada: "B12 Success! By Dave 10/January/2012
Over four years I've had multiple symptoms that puzzled my doctor. First my toes became so sensitive that cutting my toe nails was painful. Then my finger tips became so sensitive that opening bottles hurt. Then my left eye felt like it had increased pressure in it to where you would expect to have blurriness but I could still see clearly which was puzzling. I had my eyes checked and they could not see a problem. Then my ring finger on my left hand would become impossible to uncurl in the morning without the help from my right hand. Then my legs above my knees would feel like hot needles sticking in them to the point where I had to sleep with ice packs on them.
After a visit to my doctor who wanted to subscribe some Gabapentin for Neurology with a lot of bad side effects I came home and started to do a frantic search here for a remedy. I tried Vitamin B12 of 1000mcg four times a day. I noticed that I started to get relief in my legs right away. Then in a week I noticed that the pressure in my left eye started to subside. I was amazed. By the second week I was able to comfortably cut my toenails. I then acquired an itch on my left knee that nothing could help. I scratched it raw in my sleep and the next day I cut back to 1000mcg three times a day and the itch went away.
A week later I started to notice my eye was acting up so I went back to 1000mcg four times a day and it felt fine. The itch did not return and I noticed that my shrinking gums were beginning to heal. It has been a month now and everything is good to the point where I can open my ring finger on my left hand , and I must add I feel really good about this. It's been a month now and I just got some B12 Methylcobalamine 1000mcg and have noticed no difference with my symptoms as I only take one at bedtime because you don't have to take it with food.
I have also discovered that I can get it in 5000mcg which I plan to use once a day as soon as I run out of what I have. The 5000mcg once a day seems more practical as some times I forget to take one of my 1000mcg. I shall post back if there are any problems with it.
Thank You EC you are wonderful.
PS. I am still taking my ACV once a day and my hips are still good."Replies
01/11/2012: Timh from Louisville, Usa replies: "Davey D, if you were that terribly deficient in Vit-B12, it is very likely you have more deficiencies. Do consider taking a very good whole food high potency multi with every meal. The B-12 needs to be balanced with half as many mcg's of folic acid. Some formulas have the methyl donors like B-12, Folic Acid, either DMG or TMG, and B-6. I just now took 1600 mcs folate for methylation. I take 1000 mcg B-12 daily.
I once worked with special needs or challenged teens in a facility. As one could imagine the stress levels would often run quite high so I began experiencing the first nerve problems of my life. A began taking 2000 mcg time release B-12 and 1000 mg time release Vit-C before work, and presto, my nerves were verrrry much better and so was my performance."
Baking Soda, Apple Cider Vinegar, Coconut Oil
[YEA] 05/24/2008: Mo from Amsterdam, The Netherlands: "I read about using Baking Soda as a deodorant and have been using it for the last 3 months. I had tried everything - crystals and a product with lemon juice and its essence - all very good but it did not always protect the entire day. I am very happy to say that Baking Soda has been the best I have ever used - 100% effective - lasting the whole day and longer. When I shave my underarm I use Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) for at least 2 to 3 days in order to allow healing before resuming with Baking Soda. (Please do this to avoid burns). VCO is also very good but has not consistently protected all day long. I have been spreading the word to health conscious friends.
Like others, I think this site is a god-send. Thank you. I have started using Baking soda as a facial and all over body scrub; then I apply ACV and finally VCO to my face. I have been quite consistent for the last 3 months including Ted's advise regarding large facial pores. I cannot believe that my skin looks so beautiful and smooth at the age of 41. I always had beautiful skin now I look even younger - it simply is amazing!!
I have now starting being more consistent with drinking ACV 3 times a day because I need to loose at least 16 llbs. Since the birth of my third child 11 months ago - it has been a very slow process. I am hoping that in a few months I can be write a post like many others - saying that I am loosing weight. I also plan to ingest VCO and also start using it for all cooking as well. I began eating 1 tablespoon of Black Strap Molasses every morning. I try to eat a very healthy diet. So I guess soon I will not only look good but feel great as well.
Thanks again for this wonderful site!!"
[YEA] 03/20/2009: Briana from Indianapolis, IN: "I have been taking borax internally for 5 days. I haven't been following the 1/4 tsp/gal rule but have been taking it mixed in hot green tea because I needed to drink a lot of tea and I noticed the borax dissolves better in hot water. Because I didn't have a good method of measuring precisely into 8 oz I just take the tip of my finger, dip it in the borax and whatever sticks to my finger I put in the tea. So far no ill effects so I don't believe I am overdosing. I have been drinking upwards of 10 cups of green tea and Shizandra detox tea (for liver, chest congestion, and cough) per day for the last 5 days. Also I started drinking ACV 2 tbsp and 1/2 tsp baking soda in 8 oz of water yesterday. I also started oil pulling 4 days ago. I mention these other remedies in case they have had an effect on the progress of my illness, but I believe most of the progress has been due to the borax (although the oil pulling is remarkable at removing plaque and tartar, my mouth feels like I just came from the dentist).
I don't usually get sick but my health has been rapidly deteriorating for about 5 weeks. It took me awhile and some research to link the strange acne, skin rash near my eye, and intense sinus headache without much mucus and sensitivity to beer to going to a friend's house for his birthday last month. His pit bull has an odd skin condition unidentified by vets with redness and some hair loss which they say is not mange (not that I have confidence that they would know). I know this because I remember he asked me about it and I gave him an oil mixture of emu oil, VCO, and immune boosting and skin healing essential oils which he says has improved the condition. Anyway I came to conclusion that I had contracted whatever disease the dog has by petting the dog and then probably rubbing my eye. I imagine it involves mites or other small insect, fungus and/or yeast. I have very sensitive acne prone skin, but my acne has been generally under control due to diet, OCM, etc. until just the past few weeks where I broke out with increased rosacea-like redness and odd cysts that did not want to heal. I also had a nonstop sinus headache which drinking more water did not help without much drainage and a cough which did not produce much phlegm. After a couple days of research (which is how I came across the borax treatment for mites and fungus) I self-diagnosed myself as having a combination of candida, fungus infection of lungs and sinuses, and mites infecting the skin. I think I may have already had the candida (probably from working in bars around so much secondhand toxic smoke) and it depressed my immune system.
The very first day I started taking the borax I began to pee green which I was very pleased about since I knew it was from die off. I peed green on and off for a couple of days, and my pee still has a slight tinge to it at times, but I believe most of the candida, bacteria etc. is dead by now. (BTW, I had already been drinking copious amounts of green tea for a couple of days without this effect so I know it was due to the borax) I also treated my face with the borax/H2O2 in water and the acne and rash were almost gone after two days, and the spots are now healing. A rather disturbing effect of the borax taken internally is that you could feel it working. I now know exactly where all my sinus cavities and canals are because I could feel them burning one after another (I did not know I had a cavity in the top of my head and back of my head linked by canals behind the ears and over the top of the head and behind the eyes to the sinus cavities in front. I wonder what these are called?). Interestingly my bad wrist and toes would burn also, and a small area of my lower left abdomen (inflamed intestine maybe?). The most disturbing sensation was to feel critters die all over my body in the middle of the night. Needless to say I did not sleep well, the sensation could drive a person raving mad. Also, yesterday morning after oil pulling my right nostril began to drain lots of thin watery and waxy clear yellow-orange fluid. I have no idea where that was from but I assume it was a good thing to get rid of it.
Three days into the borax treatment my week long headache went away. The strange acne is now healed (5 days - internal and external treatment). I still cough and have some chest congestion but now at least I am coughing productively. I am hoping the chest congestion will clear up soon. My bad wrist and toes do not hurt as much nor pop as much as they used to. Possibly I had beginning stages of RA (I am 29) and the borax killed of the mycoplasma? I don't know but I am happy about it, I didn't expect the treatment to help."
11/13/2011: Goji from London, Uk: "I'm considering purchasing a chi machine. The type which you place your ankles on and it moves them from side to side like the tail of a goldfish. I believe there are several different ones on the market - the Chi Vitalizer, Chi Evergain, the Chi Swingmaster. It is recommended for all sorts of conditions, arthritis, lack of energy, sciatica, back problems, to name a few and users report that they feel more energised after use. I've come across quite a few good testimonials, but would welcome the independent views of Earth Clinic's contributors.
[YEA] 03/07/2009: Eileen from Bath, NY: "Healing is Happening! I have been using VCO for a little over 3 weeks now. I have had a persistent bubbly, red rash that comes and goes on my legs for many years. Also, break out on my face with pimples. I also have Fibromyalgia. I heard about the benefits of VCO and started taking it. Over the past weeks, I have noticed several things to indicate that healing is happening. I stopped using cortisone cream for itching on the rash and apply VCO 3 times a day. I am now taking 4 Tablespoons orally. My rash broke out worse at first, but is now beginning to subside. My face has been sloughing off- my pores are becoming clearer all over my entire body. I went through a lot of breakout at first and even a couple of sties in my eyelash areas. I had some nausea and loose bowels, but that eventually passed. My nails are really stronger and healthier. My hair is shiny and soft. I haven't yet seen much improvement in my Fibromyalgia, but, I am looking forward to some kind of positive healing in the near future. I had a wart on the instep of my foot that is almost gone. My skin was dry and itchy all the time and I have seen a great improvement. Initially, I had a lot of sneezing attacks and a lot of clear mucus draining out of my nose. In the mornings, my eyes would water profusely. That has all stopped. I breathe much better than I have in many years. I used to crave starches and chocolates. I don't have those cravings any longer. I have found that if I take a tablespoon of VCO 1/2 hour before a meal, I eat less. I have lost a total of 8 lbs. My breath is fresher and I stopped having to use deodorant. I am looking forward to what the future has in store for me and I am hoping to improve my metabolism and energy level. I will update in a couple of months to let all of you know if there are further improvements."

Cysts, Menopausal Symptoms
09/29/2011: Kaydo from Hayward, Ca, Usa: "Hi Everyone
I have two major problems and the docs don't seem to be able to help
First Since April, 2011, I've had swelling in my lower left leg from the calf area to the inside area with a burning sensation that starts above my inside ankle and goes up toward my knee that sometimes includes a lot of pain, the swelling never goes away but the pain is on again, off again I've tried elevating it, compression stockings neither worked. I've had two ultra sounds from the back of my knee up to my groin area and one MRI on the lower part of my leg. The orthopedist was concerned with a possible clot in the lower leg area and wanted the tech to ultra sound my lower left leg for my second ultra sound but the tech said they don't ever ultra sound the lower leg. The ultra sound showed a fluid based cyst behind my knee, but my Orthopedist doesn't feel it's the reason for the swelling, her concern was about a possible clot being in the lower part of my leg, but my MD disagrees and doesn't think it's a clot, period. The MRI showed no type of mass or cancer, YAY! My MD has sent my MRI and Ultra Sounds to a Vascular Specialist and waiting to hear from them
QUESTION: Any suggestions on how to shrink or get rid of the cyst? The Orthopedist doesn't want to do surgery, nor do I want it, Hoping I can find a natural/Homeopathy way to shrink it, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Second Problem: I started having beyond horrible night sweats/hot flashes most severe at night where I wake up like I just got out of the shower and most of the time they happen every few minutes, I'm so sleep deprived its unreal
I've been taking Chaste Berry, Black Cohosh, ACV, and eating foods that mimic estrogen in the body for months now and nothing seems to help.
My Gyno recommended a synthetic estrogen estradiol she said was bioidentical that I could insert into the Va-J-J or use as a cream, and since I wouldn't be taking it orally it didn't have the same risks as the other HRT meds. But, when I ask her about the natural bioidentical estrogen products she said she didn't like them because the FDA didn't regulate them, which did not surprise me in the least Her other two suggestions was a high blood pressure or an anti-depression meds that have show positive results in helping with severe night sweats/hot flashes, both are safe for me to take even though I don't have HBP and I'm not depressed.
Any suggestions, you might have would be greatly appreciated, Thanks."
10/04/2011: Jessica from Chicago, Il replies: "Maca Root (find at health food vitamin section) is extremely helpful with Hot Flashes. Iodine is known to reduce fibrocystic breasts and can help in all areas of the body. I hope this helps."
Deborah's Cure-All Drink
[YEA] 05/29/2009: Deborah from Hedgesville, West Wirginia: "I happen to come across this sight by accident. I've read all comments and was amazed with the results everyone had. I have acid reflux, back pain, arthritis, headaches and being a menopause women for 25 years at 51, Men as well as women can have menopause too. My weight sky rocket, pain became unbearable, started to effect my job, my life. Being an Armed Guard you have too be physically fit.The doctor wanted me too quit work and stay dope up on medicines and draw SS, no way. So I decided to do an experiment with everybody's advice just too see what would happen. I took 1-16 oz of bottle water, 2 tablespoon organic apple cider vinegar, 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda, 2 tablespoon of pure honey, 2 tablespoon of pure lemon juice, 1 tablespoon of virgin coconut oil. I ate what I usually do, some exercise.1 week later I felt so good I had more energy than my 11 year old granddaughter. The people I work with could not believe what they were seeing. I lost weight, no pain of any kind, energy you would not believe, my entire body look good as a women in her 30s. I just had my annual check up and the Doctor was amazed as in puzzle. Everything was wrong with me a month before was corrected. He said he didn't know what I was doing but to keep it up.
THIS IS THE ONLY DRINK I USE ALL DAY AFTER MY MORNING COFFEE. It's been 2 months and still going strong. I can't say this will work for every one ,but I can state that it did work for me. All ingredients are organic and pure only available in health food stores. You might paid a little more, but it's worth every penny too me, not to be sick and in pain. Not only living life but enjoying life. Doing things with my granddaughter never thought I would.You all have been a God send too me. Thank you my new friends all over the world for giving me back my life."
05/29/2009: Sandee Island Homes from Palm Coast, Florida replies: "Thank you Deborah for your Double Whammy Tonic - this combining at one time sounds like the way adding all together -- then shake as you drink in the am after coffee - and later in the day .wondering however if this premixing - and letting all "sit" keeps the strength of the tonic as strong as mixing as you go - also do you refrigerate? Appreciate the tips - Sandee"
03/07/2012: Brad from N.providence, R.i: "Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. I have psoriasis since I was 5 years old. Well at 36 with 70-80% of my body covered and psoriatic arthritis I went the holistic route over a year ago with many ups and downs. Decided to go to a natural doctor who suggested no gluten no dairy.
It has been almost 2 months and yes my skin looks a little better but the arthritis is still the same. Anyone know how long this could take? I fugure I am not putting the toxins in anymore so why hasn't the inflammation gone done. I'm pretty sure he is right about the food allergy for I did the master cleanse 2 months ago for 4 days and my skin was completely clear. This tells me something I'm putting in my body does not like. Also the inflammation was way down as well. Candida and leaky gut I do know about and read about. Thanks for listening, signed At Wits End."Replies
03/07/2012: Rswuniontown from Uniontown, Oh replies: "Maybe you would benefit from LDN (low dose naltrexone. ). Look at the home site www.ldninfo.org or you can join the Yahoo LDN group and ask if anyone takes it for this and what have the results been? I know people take it with good results for RA. It will modulate your immune system so your body can heal itself. It is usually taken in conjunction with alpha lipoic acid(European sourced) and B vitamins. Best wishes!"
