SEVERE RASH AFTER 10 DAY CLEANSE
03/14/2008: MJ : "hi ted ....' i very much need your insite.... these skin issues have completely impacted my life .... i am a body worker /healer and ceramic artist ... this has been soooo consuming ....and i have not been able to work which has depleted my resources ....
almost 2 yrs ago i did a 10 day lemonade cleanse ... i felt great during the cleanse however 2 days after (and since have had problems ) i had a severe poison ivy like break out on my neck/ arms and face .... my ears drained... swelled and crusted along with parts of my arms ... it was very painful / oozing yellow and itchy .... just after healing from that 2 fingers on my left hand felt like they had a sliver under the nail and a couple days later they itched and burned horribly and blistered ... after weeks of pain the skin died and i peeled it away .. the entire tip of one of the fingers had died....it seems to take on a slightly different form each time . ...
6-8 weeks ago the familiar sliver under the nail sensation returned ... this time the skin just split and i took it as winter dry skin .... they continued to split and a couple of my nails flattened out and painfully receded and loosened ...another has horizontally ridged.... the splitting looked like i had been cut with a knife .. some of them along the knuckle ridges others on the diagonal... i have not been able use or bend my index and middle finger on my rt hand for over a month ....they are so swollen .... itch under the skin with some new postule/wart like bumps/ blisters ... i used some emu oil a week ago and some of the dead skin peeled away leaving very pink burnt like skin... have also applied tea trea oil just today ...the pain is 70% less and i can for the first time very tenderly use the finger tips...
i have been taking acv and baking soda ....about 5-6000 mg of flax oil every other day .... a green drink ... maca rt / beet root powder and today did a oil pull .... and drinking apple cider for a gall bladder issue
thank you so much for your time
in gratitude and with many many blessings
Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "Actually a good antidote for poison IVY is to apply either a 1% or 1.5% sometimes 3% H2O2 hydrogen peroxide to neutralize the toxins. That usually helps and if I can't find anything I might just use the vinegar as an old standby. The constantly peeling skin and the skin that refuses to heal can come from a number of bacteria. The one I had experience with is the fungus, and plain vinegar soaked with the fingers for about 15 - 30 minutes with gentle brushing with toothbrush often helps. If that doesn't work I might add a several drops of H2O2 3% to the solution of 1/2 cup of vinegar. The vinegar I used here must be white distilled vinegar. Both bacteria and fungus will respond to them the same way. This' I think should be done for a couple of days before the condition stops. Alkalizing such as taking 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda twice or three times a day in 1/2 glass of water should also further help the healing. But if the condition is a staphylococcus or other bacteria, then taking some turmeric and curcumin one 1/2 teaspoon of each twice a day and some magnesium supplements 250 mg a day should help decrease the condition. However in certain occupations, certain toxins is introduced into the body, such as metal contaminants found in paints of ceramics. Therefore I might try to eat ocasionally some coriander once every two days, and just only a small amount to rid of it."
KATRINA LEFT US WITH ITCHY INFECTION
12/08/2007: S from Ocean Springs, MS: "Ever since Katrina hit we had some military personnel stay with us for a a week 3 weeks after Katrina for recovery efforts. Ever since my 2 children and I have been to numerous doctors and hospitals trying to find a diagnosis for our problems. We were told its probably scabies and to bathe in rid. After spending so much time and money we don't have trying to cure ourselves I have given up. Some doctors told me that it was in my head. One day I attempted to bust one of the pimple looking things. But it was so hard so I got a sewing pin to bust it where I could drain it. Thats when it turned into a boil. I squeezed it for at least 2 hours with nothing but blood and puss coming out of it. The scary thing is I do not know what this is. I know that we are contagious because when I surround myself around people in public and friends almost immediately I see them itching. I feel guilty for this because I wish I could prevent it. I don't know what to do. I locked my 2 kids and I up in the house for several months. Praying for a cure to this. I did not want to see my friends and humiliation made me bite my tongue not to tell them. But now the more I go out in our community I see more and more people with these bumps on there face.My friends and family are now infected. We need help! I don't know what to do! I am frightened uncomfortable and a plaqin feeling of hopelessness If this helps anyone try to diagnose this,you mainly itch on the top of your scalp and your face and when you are hot."
Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "
It would seem the condition is demodectic mites (nanoinsect) or mycoplasma bug, and if a crawly feeling (insects that goes under the skin) it could also either be lupus or Morgellons.
A Morgellon will have tiny fibers coming out of the skin, which are often referred to as superbugs. There are two remedies that can deal with this and the one that has worked for me, and another one that has worked for another person who I correspond with.
The condition manifests itself either people itching, fibers appear in the air (from the skin), people suddenly sneezed whenever the infected person is close.
The remedy requires a couple of things.
1. Get the body sufficiently alkaline. 1/2 teaspoon (adult dose), baking soda taken twice a day in 1/2 glass of water, preferably three times a day. In case of a children's dose per weight basis it is 1/2 of the dose. The urinary pH should be close to 7, such as 6.8. The dose should be increase or decrease necessary to get sufficient alkalinity.
2. In one liter of drinking water, 1/4 teaspoon of borax is added with the standard 10 drops H2O2 3% and drank throughout the day. If one liter is finished, then I would prepare another liter of water with the same dose. It is helpful to add 1/8 teaspoon or even up to 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt also. The remedy is synergistic. To make the dose more stronger, the penetrant H2O2 3% can be increased up to 30 drops 3% H2O2 per liter, but it may be too strong for most people, so it might be possible to go from 10 drops to 20 drops per liter after a week. The bugs will be killed with the borax + peroxide remedy which is what is causing the problem. It takes several weeks to see satisfactory improvement, but I believe it should be continuously taken, with quite possibly 5 days out of a week that has a two day break.
3. A 1 teaspoon of borax in one 500 cc of 1% H2O2 is prepared as a topical solution applied about 12 times a day, needed to kill the bugs, and when it improves the application frequency is reduced by 1/2. To add greater effectiveness 1-2 tablespoon of Milk of Magnesia is added to the solution. The alkalinity of the milk of magnesia as well as it's own antibiotic effect of magnesium may kill certain organism that is causing the problem.
4. Chlorella supplements is taken about 500 mg per day to remove the heavy metals.
The second remedy is pretty much experimental, but does seem to work in some cases, using the traditional black salve applied to the area of the skin to remove the demodectic mites or the pus or sore from the skin. The frequency seems to be important and can be removed whenever the salve no longer sticks and it is then reapplied until the area of wound is dried up. Even if this is used, the alkalinity remedy, with borax is still needed too, but this second remedy might be added as an supplemental if the other conditions mentioned is not working as expected.
It should be noted that I have received a similar bug from a Canadian tourist here in Thailand which she caught while she was as a student and got on my hand which the pus are quite hard (as a rock) and very difficult to kill using even alcohol.
I was cured by simply digging off the area infected and applied alcohol mixed with h2o2 1% solution, and cleaning the area. Although at the time, I did not have milk of magnesia available.
The Canadian tourist likes to touch her chin and the area also got infected. She thought it was just an acne, which further investigating (after she stopped contacting me) found to be a rosacea (demodectic mites infection) where a certain antibiotic is used that was quite effective, although the exact remedy for this remains underground and I didn't have time to investigate which particular antibiotics that really works.
If there was any last resort I might try after the borax and peroxide were proven ineffective, I might apply permethrin skin cream AFTER application of borax and peroxide a couple of hours apart. Apparently, the condition went away before I had a chance to try it the very next day."
