QUESTIONS ABOUT TED'S BORAX REMEDY FOR FIBRO

11/11/2009: Thracia from Decatur, Il: "Hi Ted, I have been paralyzed for fifteen years and was prescribed Diacepam (Valium), and I was on it for eight years. Then I was put on Cipro for about a year off and on from constant UTI's from my catheter.Then Diflucan for the yeast infection Cipro gave me. Then I stopped using it and my pain was more than I can hardly take. My doctor now believes that I have Fibromyalgia (I am in more pain in my back, hips, and shoulders than I know what to do with). Also he said I have osteoperosis and arthritis. Now they have me on Gabapentin (Norotin) and Baclofin for spasms. I have no idea what has fluoride and which ones do not. I have read so many types of borax or boron stories that I'm scared to take it. My mom got me the 20 Mule Team Borax Natural Laundry Booster and I plan to take it with 1/8 teaspoon and 1/8 teaspoon sea salt with 1 liter of warm water. Is that correct and does any of the medicine above contain fluoride so I know whether I need to stop taking it? Is there any muscle relaxers that do not contain fluoride? Part of being paralyzed is dealing with them. Any advise would be helpful. Thanks, Thracia"

11/13/2009: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "Dear Thracia:

Borax mule team is generally used in the U.S. and it is far more scary to use fluoride and it's also ubiquitous.

The UTI remedy I generally deal with is simply 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt, in one warm cup of water, empty stomach, single dose. If the UTi is a tough one, then in 3 hours I take another one. Usually a single dose does it, it hardly needs a second dose.

As to which drugs contain fluoride, I would google the name of the drugs and see if the chemical structure, has fluoride in it. The letter F is often used and is available in most wikipedia, when showing it. An example of one medicine, well known is Prozac. As in this link : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fluoxetine On that page, the chemical structure is shown as CF3. The F is a fluoride. the full chemical name is RS N methyl 3 phenyl 3 -(4-(trifluoromethyl) phenoxy) propan-1-amine. The fluor name is a fluoride. The chemical formula is C17H18F3NO. The F3 in that is fluoride.

This is an example of how to stop a fluoride chemicals hidden in these drugs. They tend to accumulate in the brain. My approach has been alway borax, because it is well tolerated, free of side effects, under normal use. The dose is 1/8 teaspoon of borax mixed in a liter of drinking water for a low dose.

The UTI is something of a priority, hence the sea salt remedy. If the sea salt doesn't work, even on two dose (I have no reported of any that say it doesn't work) Then there's two options, either I take xylitol, two teaspoon plus a sea salt, taken in separately 20 minutes apart, xylitol is taken first, wait 30 minutes, followed by a sea salt. A pure xylitol can be substituted with mannose, or mannitol. They work the same, but may require about 2 teaspoon. A good muscle relaxers for me is always magnesium supplements. As to regular drinking water of 1/8 teaspoon each, sea salt and borax. That's a low dose and is usually well tolerated. As to problems of paralysis, sometimes it helps to drink 2 drop of 0.1% methylene blue twice a day to help regenerated the nerves to reduce some paralysis problems along with twice a week vitamin B complex, and a low dose hyaluronic acid 30 mg. The hyaluronic acid is best absorbed with the drinking water that has a sea salt, otherwise is poorly absorbed. It helps normalize hydration levels of the body. I will be using more of that, perhaps in the near future in keeping the body's hydration normal. Present use in community is for arthritis, but I find the hydration levels are far more important for general healing condition than just arthritis or osteoporosis condition.

Other things to consider in lowering fluoride, includes tamarind, and iodine Lugol's solution. The dose is low, but is taken with vitamin C to allow better bioavailability. it's mixed with vitamin C in water 500-1000 mg, with just one drop of lugols in a cup of water, before sleep, as this thing makes people sleepy. Although I can reverse the effect with methylene blue, if that's taking during the morning hours and sleep is not desired. The iodine helps rid of accumulation of bromine, fluorine so that the body's immunity will be normalized. Iodine is countraindicated if a person is taking thyroxine as iodine helps the body produce it's own thyroxin, without the need for external supplements, which more ore less is a synthetic chemical. Spasms will be reduced with magnesium supplements, magnesium citrate 500 mg a day or twice a day. If it's magnesium chloride it's taken on empty stomach. Calcium is often the cause of spasms as it induces muscle contraction, while magnesium does the opposite. Potassium helps slow down and relaxes, while Sodium helps contract and speed things up. A potassium supplement or alkalization supplement, it's taken on an empty stomach after meals 2 hours twice a day 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda and 1/4 teaspoon of potassium citrate, in a cup of warm water. It's ideal to keep sodium levels steady and hence, why i find sea salt being important, however, a sea salt cannot be mixed with baking soda, as it has laxative effect, but I also used this mix, as a way of reducing constipation, and detoxification.

The pain in various areas of the body is often caused by two conditions, one is low magnesium, the other is the body is acid. Hence, magnesium is taken to help reduce muscle pain by relaxing the muscles naturally without artificial chemicals, and alkalization will help reduce the pain as pain is actually when the body is acid, bought on by poor circulation. Hence the alkaline remedy will neutralize the acid. This is just a basic remedy and should deal with most of the conditions mentioned.

11/15/2009: Thracia from Decatur, Il replies: "Thank you so much for your advise. I plan to go shopping for these items and get started on them very soon. I will keep you posted on my results. I apologize for writing you the same question twice. I just hadn't been able to locate it until now. Thanks again, Thracia"

Boron Vs. Borax

03/14/2008: T : "Hi Ted, First of all, thank you very much for all the info you have posted on earth clinic. I have found it really useful as I am suffering from fibromyalgia, depression and a relatively early menopause( at 44 years).

I have started the borax cure and use 1/8 of a teaspoon in a litre of water.
I am due to go on holiday soon, and have ordered 3mg capsules of boron (solgar), as it would be a lot more practical for me rather than to take the borax.

Would you be able to let me know how much boron is 1/8 of a teaspoon of borax equivalent to, so that I know how many capsules of the boron 3mg I need to take in order to get the same dose as I am taking now?

Warm Regards and Many Thanks,"

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "The esophagus pH of 4 is a good clue. A good healthy pH esophagus is' 6, and the dividing line from conventional medicine is 4 as being what separates an acid reflux from a non-acid reflux is not really a good preventive measures. Ideally I prefer a figure closer to 6. An average of 4 pH generally speaking is an acid reflux. Interestingly a stubborn acid reflux needs to consider two points, that the pH of the saliva may be acid or below pH of 7 which is insufficient to neutralize the esophagus pH. That means the saliva pH needs to be raised too not just the urinary pH. That's only part of the solution. The other points to ponder is that if the esophagus pH is still 4, then obviously the body needs to increase the alkaline dosage much more further. If this doesn't seem obvious, just read the dog research below, where they were able to effectively raise the esophagus pH to 6. To raise the saliva pH requires a different remedy, and a stronger form such as 1/2 teaspoon of trisodium citrate plus 1/2 teaspoon of potassium citrate, in 1/2 glass of water taken twice or three times a day. It is the potassium that raises saliva pH, but it should be either in the form of potassium citrate or potassium bicarbonate. The other intracellular fluids, as opposed to the sodium extracellular fluids to consider is the magnesium citrate, 250-500 mg. If the dose does not increase, it the trisodium citrate portion can be upped to 1 teaspoon of trisodium citrate plus 1/2 teaspoon of potassium citrate taken three times a day. I might wonder why the extreme increase in dose, and I have found the source that is causing extreme acidity, often called metabolic acidosis, which can also trigger a major acid reflux and the body being relatively almost unresponsive to the baking soda, that one major enemy I have was the aspartame hidden in many supplements, sometimes unlabeled, appearing as an innocent sugar free gum, xylitol gum, diet coke, coke zero, pepsi max, hidden in effervescent tablets, hidden in artificial flavorings (as methanol) or labeled as proprietary. After stopping the aspartame the metabolic acidosis last for weeks and if I don't catch it sooner, I get a permanent macular degeneration, and become diabetic and acid reflux. Interestingly the lesson of aspartame can be extended to casual use of paint thinners, and sometimes (at least here in Bangkok) we used methanol as a paint thinner. Both aspartame and methanol degrades into formaldehyde inside the body destroying the neural system that is the major component in controlling the body's pH. Hence to restore this damaged function I need to decompose the formaldehyde and other system in my body by oxidative detoxification by the use of hydrogen peroxide therapies. That means in a one liter drinking water I will add 1 teaspoon of baking soda (1 liter is equivalent to 4 glasses of water with 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda at similar concentration) plus 30 drops of hydrogen peroxide 3% taken for a couple of days, to detoxify not just formaldehyde, but also other pharma drugs, and other chemicals that get recirculated in the body causing auto toxification. The other issue is neural damage caused by hydrocarbons (source can come from cigarettes, painting fumes, new carpets chemical smells, new cars chemical smells, gasoline fumes, kerosine use from insecticides, etc) that also causes extreme metabolic acidosis. The problem about the baking soda is that it doesn't cause global alkalization due to its limited ability to neutralize acid in areas where there is high carbon dioxide pressure in the body, and hence the use of trisodium citrate. The problem about trisodium citrate is that it's hard to find in a supermarket, so a suitable substitute might be the carbicarb mixed often used by researchers to revive in animals and humans during a heart attack instead of using the old sodium bicarbonate. However I use this thing to alkalize more effectively, so the remedies appear to be, for a stronger remedy: 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda plus 1/2 teaspoon of sodium carbonate (washing soda) in 1/2 glass of water taken 3 to 4 times a day. It takes about 2-3 weeks to effectively raise the body's pH. However, this is only part of the story. The salivary pH may be acid or below 7 and may not be strong enough to neutralize (when swallowing saliva) the esophagus pH. Thus 1/4 teaspoon of potassium citrate is also added to the remedy. Of course this is a stronger form of remedy and should improvement is seen, its generally best for me to go to the lower dose remedy of just using it twice a day, or just using baking soda alone. One additional tip is that a baking soda, mixed in all drinking water during the day or throughout the day can be used to keep the esophagus pH in check in case an acid reflux is detected or a pain is experience, then I might take 1/4 teaspoon or 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda if I might have an attack, or at least have that feeling before it became worse. It should also be noted that in anorexic, bulimia, and some acid reflux people, a majority of them have a B12 and vitamin B complex deficiency. The neural damage caused by hydrocarbons caused acid reflux since neural system is what controls most of the pH stability. Therefore I might take B12 100 mcg x 4 times a day, plus vitamin B complex in form of B50 where most of the B's are 50 mg each, but because of the high amounts of hydrochloride added to most B complex in an attempt to lower cost, I might take it just once every two days. Most of the problems is that B1 thiamine should be thiamine mononitrate, not thiamine hydrochloride, and B6 should be pyridoxine phosphate, not pyridoxine hydrochloride, and for B3 it should be niacinamide, not niacin. It takes about a month for the body to attain a sufficient amount of B complex, but some maintenance dose is still needed Magnesium here is helpful. As to the adrenal issues, the DHEA 25 mg, pregnenolone 50 mg is taken to put less pressure on the adrenal systems so that the adrenal won't have to work too hard and these hormonal supplements can cause and raise the immunity, thereby affecting the pH of the system. Also glandular systems get destroyed if anyone has a history of fungus issues and if that's the case than a borax remedy is needed, between 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon in one liter of drinking water only 3 or 4 days out of a week. Borax tends to normalize hormonal issues too, but notably it balances the critical magnesium to calcium ratio. Lack of iodine can cause glandular atrophy and iodine kelp may be needed such as once every two days. It should be noted that certain pathogens, and fungus can cause the body to be acid, accumulate heavy metals from antibiotics use, and this is another reason why borax remedy is used. To kill of the pathogens causing the acid reflux. Zinc certainly will raise the immunity and should also be taken in the form of zinc gluconate 50 mg about three times per week. Finally two additional neuroprotective remedies that can further alkalize the body, besides completely avoiding aspartame and hydrocarbons is the smart drugs, such as 800 mg of nootropil (pyroglutame) and 2 mg of hydergine taken together for once every other day, or perhaps 4 days or 5 days in a row, needed to restore that ineural damage. In fact, a cellular phone can do the damage just the same, by inflicting neural damage to the brain the body can also become metabolic acidosis and hence when talking to the phone, either a hands free mode, or a blue tooth is used instead. A Russian had actually cooked boiled eggs using two cellular phones within an hour or so, so even if authorities deny cellular phones cannot damage the brain, it's hard to deny that a cellular phone can cook my brains."

3% H2O2 Safe to Consume?

12/24/2007: N : "Is it safe to consume 3% Hydrogen Peroxide? I have had Fibromyalgia for over 20 years. My conditions involve the following: Severe Constipation, Poor Digestive Problems, Chronic Pain, Concentration Challenges."

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "Usually a food grade 3% H2O2 is used in drops added to a glass of water. Since it is diluted and it is food grade, it can be consumed.

One case had similar problem and cured by the following simple remedies took, however in this case, that person also reported ringing of the ears, sleeping problems and paranoia (now and then):
'
1. 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda plus 3-6 drops ofH2O2 3% taken once in the morning in 1 glass of water.

2. 500 mg of magnesium citrate (or chloride) a day,

3. 1/2 teaspoon of malic acid and 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda (to neutralize the acid), or a simpler way, but less stronger dose of 2 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar plus 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda twice a day once in the morning and once in the evening.

4. Vitamin B complex B50 taken usually once a day and an additional B3 niacinamide of 100 mg for the paranoia condition. Preferred vitamin B1 in the B complex should be thiamine mononitrate. If energy level is still lacking an additional B1 of 100 mg extra may be added to give the needed energy levels.

The severe Constipation, usually indicates lactic acidosis or extreme acidosis, and the baking soda and thiamine vitamin B1 should help. An additional 1 tablespoon of lecithin may also be helpful. The poor digestive problems should be helped from the B12,as well as other Bs, which relates to glucose metabolism and alkalinity.

The chronic pain the use of magnesium and malic acid found in apple cider vinegar should help. Concentration Challenges should be mostly helped from B12 and B3 niacinamide, however chinese parsley should rid the heavy metals taken once every two days, of any small and reasonable amount. Such as 2 – 4 tablespoons of it. It may help reduce stress if sodium thiosulfate is mixed with borax in a bathtub too, if there is excess stress, or just a couple drops before sleep10% sodium thiosulfate dechlorinator added about 3drops before sleep in 1/2 glass of water, more may be needed in the future and this at least allows the body to get use to it and may cause a slight laxative effect, but that's only initially.

An additional problem of concentration may further be helped with an amino acid supplements, so that the body will have a balance amino acid, which should include both essential and non-essential amino acid. The most important nonessential amino acid is 2000-4000 mg of L-glutamine"

Suffering From Fibromyalgia for Over 20 Yrs

12/17/2007: N : "I have had Fibromyalgia for over 20 years. My conditions involve the following:

Setback in Recovery

12/13/2007: P from Ohio: "Thank you Ted for your reply. I will try the hydrogen peroxide with the baking soda for energy. Lately I have had a setback in my recovery by the way of an increase in pain everywhere. Am really trying hard to keep a positive attitude an thank all on EC for all the great remedies. I tested positive for EBV, Negative for mycoplasma, neg for lyme, and had antibodies for cpn. I also have a small tumor on my anterior pituitary gland, but the Dr. doesn't think my illness has any relation to it. Thanks again for your feedback. Will not ever give up"

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "

Dear P: A Vitamin B1 100 mg, (plus B complex of B50 kind -where mostly they are of 50 mg) taken every other day, plus magnesium citrate 500 mg, and some malic acid (with baking soda to neutralize the acidity) or a malic acid substitute using apple cider vinegar, I have found to be cured in one case and based on this experience are the following things about fibromyalgia that may be worth repeating:
1. Alkalinity (sufficient to go near 7)
2. Vitamin B complex, plus B1 - weakness will return within the hour.
3. Magnesium citrate 500 mg/day or at lest 250 mg.
4. Some apple cider vinegar with baking soda can be used alternately too.
Good luck!

Need to Know the Vitamins to Take

09/04/2006: Mirella from Bronx, NY: "I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. i need to know, what vitamins to take,what remedy to do, how can i prevent this situation from getting worse. my joints are stiff every morning. my whole body ached .. pls i need help. i also have tendonitis in my feet,ankle and calf. and am starting to lose my hair in the middle and around my hair was always very thin now is less.. I have been sick for 1yr. everything is a mess ...thank you."

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "The pain of joints can be reduced by taking for at least a couple of weeks of vitamin B complex and some manganese sulfate. Vitamin B complex is often taken together with some aspirin (anti nanobacteria also) and some magnesium. The pain should be reduced substantially after about a month. Joint problems require longer time to heal"

Any Treatment to Cure Disorder

Anonymous : "I am very curious about this disease. My mother was diagnosed with this disorder about 3-4 years ago. She has since then separated with her husband, moved from the house, questioned her self worth, and has just about exhausted any clinical version of treatment that is offered. As you are in Thailand, I was curious if there has been any method or treatment that has shown to aid or even cure this hindering ailment. Some form of massage or homeopathy that the United States hasn't accepted or caught wind of yet. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I can't stand to see my mother deteriorate at such an alarming rate. She's a 47 year old now stuck in an 80 year old body. Thank you for your time."

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "The conditions of fibromyalgia seems to be an aggressive one, therefore:

I will make it simple: take 250 mg Magnesium Chloride (Magnesium Aspartate or Magnesium Orotate is good also) and 25,000 I.U. Vitamin D and 300 mg of Malic Acid. If you can't find Malic acid, take apple cider vinegar, 1/2 cup/ day x 2 day. Once the conditions have improved, reduce the dosage. Drink 1/2 glass of water before meal and drink glass of water at every meal and take 1 full glass of water before sleep. Vary your dosage according to her conditions.

Eat about 1/2 cup along with soups, or other food of fresh cilantro (Chinese parsley) every day for at least 1 month. YOU Must take them every day!! This will remove toxic heavy metal.

If the conditions does not improve or you believe she needs a more aggressive dosage than take 2 tablespoon 2 times per day of sea salt mixed with 1 glass of water.

Magnesium might cause the diarrhea, but this is necessary to get rid of the toxin buildup as well as a severe magnesium deficiency.

If mother have a herxheimer reaction, apple cider vinegar or vinegar will reduce the side effects.

One teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate every night mixed with water.

Your mother's conditions will hopefully improve within 3-4 days. If and when she improves, consider adding zinc acetate of about 100-200 mg/day. You may need to consider humic acid/fulvic acid later on to reduce the toxic mycoplasma buildup later on also.

Do not drink milk, bread or white sugar. It makes her conditions much worse. Try eating brazil nuts, pecan, walnut. Real butter is good. Avoid using any vegetable oils for cooking. Coconut oil is o.k.

I am keeping it simple here so you can try them out."

Best Treatment for Fibromyalgia?

Anonymous : "What would you say is the best treatment for fibromyalgia? I was injured at my job in 1997 and have been suffering with this since. Often fibromyalgia is caused by injury as in my case. I am an RN but don't know what is really safe with all my medications. Are there adverse effects from these treatment? I have been going for pain management for a long time and certain treatments have helped and until just the past few weeks had only suffered from back, neck and arm pain along with fatigue and headaches. It is hard to hold down a job when you feel so miserable."

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "Many people with fibromyalgia had symptoms that went away and there seems to be many ways. One way is taking water with then 5-10 drops of 3% H2O2 seems to bring relief especially the weakness fairly quickly. Doctors are using magnesium and malic acid to reduce fibromyalgia, so you can take this after to take a glass of water with a weak solution of H2O2.

Apparently the caused is coming from some kind of mycoplasma. Which is fungus like and difficult to kill, however, these should lessen the pain or at least make them tolerable. Another way that seems to hit well is taking about 4 teaspoon (or grams) of sea salt with 1 teaspoon of vitamin C (4 to 1 ratio). Just start smaller than and try it out. Taking baking soda about 1/2 - 1 teaspoon seems to help in increasing oxygen in the blood by increasing the pH of the blood a bit and will help kill the mycoplasma.

It has been increasing trend that people who take yearly flu vaccines have very high methyl mercury level that exceeds the EPA by as much as 25 times. Therefore, it will really help if you eat some vegetables, in particular 1/3 cup of chinese parsley to chelate them out. This is taken only after taking the sea salt and vitamin C. The pathogens once destroyed will release two things, free radical irons and biological toxins. Chinese parsley will chelate the metals safely (Asians been eating this vegetable for thousands of years and used as a blood purifier) and also taking some apple cider vinegar will neutralized the toxins from a mycoplasma die off.

There is no perfect treatment since most people don't provide me any feedback. This is especially true when they are cured or gone into remissions. One told me that limu, a type of brown seaweed seems to work well with fibromyalgia also."

Question About Using Supplements

Jude : "Dear Ted, I have listed the questions that I have about using my supplements.

1. Regarding the mixture procedure and dosage for MgCl and Malic Acid: I understand that I can take up to 1 gram of MgCl per day without side effects. Is this true of Malic acid also? can I mix them together in the same solution? Also, can I add the H202 and the vinegar to the same mixture and drink them together? ( This is what I have been doing) I haven't had any problems so I assume it is OK. However, If you have any suggestion I would appreciate.

2. Please advise on how to use:

a) the sea salt
b) the MgOH
c) Sodium Thiosulfate

Ted, what I have been doing is premixing some Sodium Thiosulfate in water along with a couple of drops of the "Dechlorinator" and adding it to a large 20 liter bottle of drinking water. Then I filter the resultant solution before drinking. I have noticed a better water. However, it could be my imagination because I have had good clean water for a while. I hesitate using the magnesium hydroxide as I do not like any OH at all. Please advise how to use it and what it is suppose to do. I have no reference on how to use the sea salt. Please advise about this also. I am beginning my second week now and have made these observations; My headaches have diminished in severity and recurrence. This began in Bangkok after I took the first "pinch" in my hotel room. I noticed an improvement during the day as I walked up and down the stairs for the sky train. After a couple of day I began to retain fluid and my feet and ankles would swell-up a bit. This passed after a day or so but I still notice some difficulty removing my ring from my finger. Is this normal or am I returning to normal? I still have some pain in my joints but am noticing a definite relief from muscular discomfort. The pain I told you about in my left heel is still there but greatly improved. I am paying close attention to it and hope it improves more.

So, Ted, Please advise me about mixing procedures for the supplements and also for the water treatment. Also please give more information about the liquid drops of "Dechlorinator: and the drops of "Si" the fingernail supplement - I have noticed after only one week that my finger nails are more flexible and easier to clean. However, this could be from a better Ca Mg balance. The "crusty" cuticles are gone..... Many Thanks "

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "Dear Jude: People varies in dosage of MgCl without side effect. Some get diarrhea as little as 500 mg. For me it has no effect at all. Last time you took a pinch of MgCl to a 250 cc glass of water, which is about 250 mg. Some people are so sensitive that I have to recommend 250 mg/liter of water.

The reason for variation is simple: if the person is severely deficient in Magnesium, the likelihood of a diarrhea is stronger. It means the body's electrolyte is severely imbalance and the system tries to dump out more waste, including water. Therefore, you really have to guess about your own level of tolerance for MgCl. It will get much more tolerance with long term use.

The wonderful thing about natural supplements in general is they can generally be mixed together. This means you can mix Malic acid and vinegar together.

Again, as a level of caution start small dosage first this includes both malic acid and vinegar. For me 500 mg/250 cc of water for Malic acid is way to sour for me. So it depends on your taste. And yes you can mix with a couple of drops of 3% H2O2 also. As to the use of sea salt, here is what I do: a pinch of sea salt per liter of water. I don't recall recommending you any Magnesium Hydroxide as I have never used or have any magnesium hydroxide myself.

But I do recall recommending fulvic acid, chlorinator(sodium thiosulfate), defluoridator (boron compounds), sea salt, H2O2, Silicon dropper and vinegar. As to your condition of swelling, this has much to do with perhaps not drinking enough water.

This is especially true of hot weather. Try this and see if you improve: drink about 1/2 liter first thing in the morning (actually my calculations is about 600-700 cc for your size and weight, but this is a small point). During the breakfast, you may drink any amount you like, since your starting value was already 500 cc. of water. I have noticed that you do not drink enough water during breakfast, but you drink other things which is not helpful with fluid retention, such as tea, coffee and fruit juices. After you have breakfast try to keep tabs whether the swelling is now reduced. If you feel better then go for another 1/2 liter of water before lunch. Then continue that with 1/2 liter before sleep. What it does is that when you drink more water, you loose more sodium thus reducing the fluid retention caused by sodium. This at least was helpful for my conditions of fluid retention and my high blood pressure.

Remember the water I drink are all pre-treated similarly to what I wrote you by adding a pinch of sea salt, plus de chlorinated, defluoridated, as well as adding a drop of the mineral concentrate (which consists of fulvic acid also) to the one liter of water. In my experience, joints are slow to recover, but muscular aches and pains will go first. The nails and hair, and skin will improve next, and finally the joints. If you want your joints to heal faster, take more of the water soluble silicon more. This might be helpful.

If you can get Knox gelatin, or non sweetened gelatin to your diet, it was shown to be helpful to your joints as well. Taking of vitamin C supplements may be helpful with joint conditions by increasing collagen production.

Other things that will help is allantoin mixed with aloe vera oil or DMSO. But this is another story. The other problem about the swelling could also be the fibromyalgia that you mentioned, and clove oil as mentioned might be helpful, but the use on clove oil can be done later on once the pre-treatment of water is in place. If you wanted to be sure that you are not drinking enough water do the urine electrical conductivity test, the average is between 30,000 - 40,000 mirosiemens/cm2. If the value exceeds that than you don't drink enough water. For me my urine conductivity is way over the hill at 95,000 and up, which means I have to follow the stict regimen of drinking at least 1/2 liter morning, lunch and evening not counting the water I drink during meals, when I am thirsty and assuming I am not outside working hard. When your urine conductivity is way over for years and year without you realizing, then you get swelling, high blood pressure and reverse osmosis of the eye fluid causing macular degeneration, which I am currently suffering with my left eye.

So drinking more water might solve these conditions I am currently having. I should have bought the conductivity meters and brix meter sooner! Also, it seems that magnetized blender water had a very favorable effects (more longer time) in better values of pH, electrical conductivity, Brix(sugar level) and ORP (oxidation reduction potentials). So if you get a chance to experiment with it see what happens, at least my beans sprouts and all the plants in my house responded quite favorably! Thank you for the feedback. "

I started with Sea Salt, then found out of its impurities. Read up on Hym. Salt.... Also stay away from milk products. For some reason organic butter is ok for me..
