Hydrogen Peroxide Inhalation to Treat a Virus
Home Remedy Ingredients:
- Hydrogen Peroxide - 3%
While it should be undertaken carefully, using an emptied nasal spray bottle to inhale 3% hydrogen peroxide can open up airways and reduce flu symptoms. (Be sure to first sterilize the spray bottle with boiling water.) Point the spray bottle in your mouth and at the back of your throat, and while inhaling sharply pump 4-6 sprays of the hydrogen peroxide. Repeat this treatment 4-6 times a day.
[YEA] 02/09/2006: Jonna from LA, CA: "I have been struggling to get over the flu for the past 6 weeks. I have had a recurring sore throat, but mainly I have been unusually exhausted! I tried everything on your flu page! Nothing helped: vitamin C, zinc, apple cider vinegar, garlic, oregano oil. Finally went to the doc and he prescribed antibiotics (sometimes helps with a virus). Did not do a thing! Anyway, came across Bill's recommendation to inhale peroxide. I have put peroxide in my ear for years (didn't help this time), but never inhaled it. Figured it couldn't hurt! Started to inhale the peroxide, per Bill's instructions and it's now been 36 hours. I am not yet back to 100% but feel so much better! I have tons of energy. When I feel a wave of fatigue hit (the virus trying to come back?), I take more peroxide and the tiredness goes away immediately. Interesting stuff!"
[YEA] 05/08/2008: Traci from Quincy, MA: "I had horrible flu like symptoms that lingered for over a week. Figured I would try eating whole lemons as they have natural antibiotic properties. The day after I started eating them I felt the virus lifting from me! Maybe a coincidence, but I am giving the lemons credit on this one! Good to feel human again."Replies
[YEA] 05/29/2011: Sandra from Glasgow, Scotland, Uk replies: "THANK YOU TRACI! Thank you. I had had a virus for nearly 2 weeks - I had been housebound most of that time as I had VERY little energy. I was getting worn down by not getting any better, (I was actually getting worse), and rather than go to the doctor and be prescribed antibiotics,
I googled 'natural remedies for a virus' and up popped this page. I read through some cures but was too wary of trying some suggestions and then I came across 'Lemons', as I had some in my home, I thought I had nothing to lose by trying. Nothing to 'lose'? My oh my, what I didn't know was I had EVERYTHING to gain. I took a whole lemon, halved it in two and squeezed, by hand, all the juice into 8oz of warm water and I drank every drop - I used a straw as that made it easier for me. Now, WHILST I was literally drinking the lemon water I could feel a difference - seriously! - but the best was yet to come, within half an hour I had SO much energy and felt SO much better. I also read about the pH balance of our bodies and mine was out of sync - lemons, although acid have an alkalyzing effect on our systems - I had too much acid which leads to not enough oxygen in your system and the lemon, RAPIDLY corrected the imbalance. That was 4 days ago and since then I have taken the lemon drink every day AND I am going to continue doing so. It's ONLY a lemon, try it and be amazed!
Thank you Earth Clinic for your forum, I was at my wits' end and now I am tiptop. Coincidence? I don't believe in such things, it simply was the lemon."
[YEA] 06/26/2011: Lalainlalaland from Los Angeles, Ca, Usa replies: "I know a highly regarded naturopath in the USA. He advocates the use of lemons for allergies, colds, flus, all types of viruses.
This are his instructions:
Take a teaspoon full of pure, fresh lemon juice every half hour for two hours, in other words, four times.
Don't drink any liquids for 10-15 mins before or after a dose of lemon. Don't eat either.
I have tried this many times and yes, it works very well! Try to avoid your teeth as lemon can also effect tooth enamel.
If the condition is very severe, do this for three hours, or six times.
This naturopath felt it was better than taking lemon as 'lemonade', that is lemon juice and water as it dilutes the lemon, and by taking it over a couple of hours-- it, to quote him, 'does not give the little buggers time to regroup".
You will find that lemon juice does give you energy as the poster above mentions.
One last thing: I have been using a squeeze of lemon juice instead of deodorant for several years and am thrilled not be putting chemicals under my arms. The juice works incredibly well! I told and a friend, she tried it and liked it so well, she went out and put a lemon tree in her backyard!
It is a good thing we have TWO lemon trees in my back yard--as we use lemons on everything--they are God's gift to us--and even come in a bright, attractive packaging! :)
Good luck, hope this helps someone!"
06/03/2009: Greenbeanz39 from Clarkston, Washington: "I just wanted to share my story. For almost a month now I have had a "bug".I immediately started my regular treatments of acv, oil of oregano, clove oil, taking more vit.c and e. Two weeks into was feeling better then on Sunday it hit me like a brick again.To the point of not being able to move off the couch. Extreme chills, loss of appetite and just fatigued. Out of utter desperation I tried the h2o2 inhalation which made me vomit. Stopped doing that. I was afraid that I had pneumonia at this point. I have always warned people on the use of antibiotics and haven't used them myself for close to ten years.I have always been able to heal myself.I am ashamed to say the my brother in law gave me his antibiotics and I am on day two of taking them. I feel defeated and have gone against everything I believe in. Not sure if these stupid things will work since I don't know what I have and I don't go to doctors. I just needed to vent this. Has anyone else gone through this? My sense of guilt is huge."Replies
06/03/2009: Greenbeanz39 from Clarkston, Washington replies: "I forgot to mention that I have also been taking baths with h2o2 epsom salt and eucalyptus and taking probiotics."
06/05/2009: Linda from York County, Maine replies: "...gosh, I hope you have a doctor you can go to; have your blood checked....a 'bug' for a month doesn't sound good and not something to try and heal with home remedies. Don't get me wrong, Greenbeanz39, my doc is my last effort when I'm not right...I'm hugely into trying to heal myself but sometimes the ailment is bigger than me. Best wishes to you, Linda."
06/06/2009: Tara from Clarkston, Washington replies: "Thank you Linda for your post.You are exactly right, I actually had to go to the ER the day after my post because my lungs had filled with fluid to the point that I knew that being stubborn would probably be my demise.Come to find out that I have pneumonia.Thankfully I sought care before my five year old rolls over to find that mommy is blue and cold. I suppose when all else fails, there is a place for the allopathic medicine. I'm just glad that regardless of my finances I went. You are such a kind woman for caring and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I think I will stick to the natural as usual for colds and such, but for the serious stuff I will stick to the pro's. God bless, Tara"
06/07/2009: Linda from York County, Maine replies: "Hi Tara, I'm sorry to hear about the pneumonia, but glad you went to the ER...for me, more than a week of not feeling well is too long. Natural remedies ROCK and our stubborn streaks can get in the way...it's not easy to know when to 'give in'...just remember how much your daughter needs you!! I hope you get well soon and enjoy continued good health. "
08/18/2009: Angie from Jersey City, NJ, USA replies: "To Dj from PDX,
I would love to hear an update on your Bloodroot therapy. Are you still taking the bloodroot product? How do you feel? Looking forward to your reply!
03/06/2012: Toyin from Baltimore, Md replies: "Just remember that homeopathics and such are primarily our preventative for an ailment to get to do some attacking of the problem at the very start. Peace and stay true to our souls' direction- we live in a time when the unnatural rides along as well."
[NAY] 02/19/2009: Paul from Sophia, NC: "Have had a virus or something for 2 months. It seems to be getting better but the phlem continues to build up in my lower throat. I'm continually clearing my throat and coughing. I take a good muti-vitamin and 50 mg of d3, echinecea, 550 mg of c. Any reccommendations?"Replies
[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] 02/19/2009: Caitlin from Los Angeles, CA replies: "Paul, I am on week 3 of that same virus! Exactly the symptoms you are talking about. Light plegm, scratchy cough! I have tried high doses of vitamin c, vitamin d, elderberry extract, homeopathic remedies for coughs, multi vitamins. Would get better, then come back.
Since yesterday I am doing the hydrogen peroxide inhalation method every 3 hours and sipping straight apple cider vinegar with a little hot water added. Felt better right away. The straight acv has stopped the cough right away. I just need to remember to keep sipping it. Not so bad if you add hot water."

Oil Pulling, Castor Oil Packs
[SIDE EFFECTS] 07/27/2010: Girl from Toronto, Ontario, Canada: "I have been oil pulling 2x/day 4-5x/wk since Jun 14, 2010 and began using castor oil packs on my stomach Jul 19, 2010. I plan on using 3-5x/wk.
Does anyone have any experience with this? I am looking to rid my body of a virus as well as remove toxins. I am curious how long I should continue with this. I feel my symptoms are slightly worse but read this is to be expected. Should I continue? Should I choose one method only? Would love any suggestions people may have."
Pau D'arco Tea, Vitamin C
[YEA] Ryan from Arizona: "Very large doses of Pau D'arco tea (2 bowlfulls a day) for about a month. 5 -10 grams mixed ascorbates (acid neutralized vitamin C, aka zinc ascorbate, calcium ascorbate, magnesium ascorbate, potassium ascorbate and a very small amount of sodium ascorbate to provide sodium ions to help with absorption ) to bowel tolerance + Fresh lime juice every day. This combo suppresses CMV. I had brain fog and irritations in my mouth and GI tract. CMV is a virus in the same family as Chicken Pox and Herpes.
If you use Vitamin C, use acid neutral vitamin C or else you'll encounter problems from the acidity of the vitamin C. Sugar in your blood or intestine slows absorption, so take on an empty stomach or before exercising. Dosage is variable. Some people need 10 grams a day. Some people only need 500mg a day. Larger doses (above a gram or so) need to be divided into several smaller doses and taken with large amounts of water throughout the day.
Drinking alcohol depletes glutathione in the liver and increases the need for vitamin C."
[YEA] 03/26/2013: Renee from Bergen Co., Nj: "I had a virus for two days w/ low fever, sinus congestion, headache, achiness, and tiredness. I tried several remedies, like alkalizing with lemon juice and baking soda and also oil of oregano. I couldn't tell much difference. Then I tried 2 cups of Pau D'Arco tea, one in the afternoon & another that evening. I immediately felt somewhat better. The next morning, I felt a lot better - more energy, no headache, and just a runny nose. I drank 3 large cups throughout the day (using same teabag) and felt 100% better by evening. Even my nose stopped running. Amazing!"
08/10/2012: Angelicam from Barrie, Ontario, Canada: "Do you know of any way to deal with this particular virus- adenovirus 36?? Thank you!"
07/21/2011: Abedog from Kirkland, Wa, Usa: "I have a 4 year old daughter who has had rectal strep her entire life. There are times we are able to get it to go away for a bit with a round of antibiotics, but today, she tested positive for strep while on Augmentin. I've read all the posts for strep, but all of that info is for the throat.
My issue clearly involves a strep carrier and it involves a different part of the body. I would love to kill this once and for all. But will settle for an effective way to treat it when it surfaces."Replies
07/21/2011: Sunshine from Somewhere, Usa replies: "Look up info. on LDM-100. It is a great natural antibiotic!"
07/13/2011: Meredith K. from San Antonio, Texas, U.s.a.: "Horrible Virus and not getting any better.
I need some advice. I've been in bed for 8 days straight with what is obviously a virus. I've been to the doctor twice and I'm planning to return tomorrow. I was given a shot of antibiotics on the first visit and it didn't do any good. I have high fevers, followed by violent chills that can last for hours. Then the fevers break and I'm very sweaty. There has been a little vomiting, but not much. Last night I was back in the urgent care clinic and my levels were so low, they gave me an IV and forced me to drink potassium. I have had a relentless migraine like headache since last night and I can't sleep. My body has been aching like I was poisoned but now I feel like I worked out too hard yesterday. I've been alternating Tylenol and Ibuprofen, like the doctor told me too, and downing the Gatorade. I'm miserable, have two small children and no help. Does anyone have any recommendations?"Replies
07/13/2011: Pam from Groveland, Fl replies: "Hello! Hope ur a little better by now, but if not and for future use I reccomend making a concoction of 2 tbls of each of the following; raw apple cider vinegar, honey and lemon juice evry four hours maybe add ginger to it, I guarantee recovery a.s.a.p! Always works for my househould and if you can... Buy aloe juice and drink a shot glass worth every four hours as well or just add it to the concoction as well. This is a no fail system in my house and everyone I reccomend it to works for them as well! Aloe juice better than gatoraide! You can also turn that concoction into a nice warm tea by adding hot water and drinking slowly, makes you feel cozy! I hope you try this and it works for you! May you feel better!"

I take 20 drops of Tabasco in 4 oz or less of water, once per day. I do this for three days. I only use Tabasco.
I don't take 19 drops or 21. I use this for many illnesses.
Good Luck! Hope you feel better in 15 minutes."
07/13/2011: Oscar from Syracuse, New York, Usa replies: "Dear Meridith, Were you diagnosed with a viral infection ? If so which one ? The symptoms you described can be the result of many things. The compound BHT [ butylated hydroxytoluene ] has proven to be a very effective treatment for LIPID ENVELOPED viruses that include: hepatitis B and C, the different herpes viruses, the AIDS virus, the flue viruses and others.
I don`t know what is wrong with you. If it is one of the lipid enveloped viruses BHT may help a lot. I encourage people who choose to try BHT to use no more than the 350mg capsules it is often sold in per day with water on an empty stomach. That is what worked for me for hepatitis C. I used only 200mg per day and I weigh 180 pounds. If you choose to try BHT: Take BHT alone, with water on an empty stomach and wait at least 1 hour to allow BHT to be metabolized and for those metabolites to be absorbed. This is what worked for me.
BHT has also proven to be a remarkably effective free radical scavenger by Dr. Denham Harman and many others in many studies. A simple way of thinking of that is that it detoxifies a person`s body in many ways. I also suggest doing a sensitivity test with BHT. Simply open up one of the capsules and lick your finger and daub it on the crystals and lick your finger to test for sensitivity, any negative side effects. Most people have NO such sensitivity, but some do. Some few get dizzy and a few have reported rashes. But this is almost always at larger doses than I have discussed and mixed with oils and other things. An effective dose is what is desired and more is NOT better. BHT is a powerful anti-oxidant, a GOOD thing in SMALL doses....Oscar"

07/13/2011: Debbie from Melbourne, Australia replies: "Do you have access to vitamin C (sodium absorbate)? you could easily take 10-18 grams per day to kill the virus for starters (or more vitamin c until you get to bowel tolerance)."
07/13/2011: Gavin from Manganui, Northland, New Zealand replies: "Ive just done some research on natural remedies for treating malaria.. Apparently grapefruit contains quininne like substances..

06/22/2009: Vanessa from Los Angeles, CA: "I desperately need help. I'm not sure what I "have" but I have been sick for weeks. What can I say, when I get sick- I get SICK. I am 26 years old and have gotten sick at least 4 times a year for the past 3 years. Usually its diagnosed as sinusitis, strep throat, sinus infection, throat infection and so on. The doctors always give me anti-biotics and usually it does help and I get better within 3 days. I finished my course of anti-biotics a week and a half ago and still I feel sick. Its very frustrating. I just want to feel normal again. My current symtoms:
Sore throat, stuffy nose, sneezing, dry cough, swollen glands in neck, low grade fever, ear aches and head aches every so often, dull pain in neck, eyes are gunky when I wake up and red/irratated through the day, Im extremely tired and weak most of the day, and my stomach has just not been "right".
I've taken anti-biotics, probiotics, ACV at least once a day (2 teaspoons), vitamin C (1000mg daily), multi vitamins. So far nothing has cured me. I am going to try eating lemons/drinking lemon water and gargling with cayenne next on top of what Im already doing. I know if I go to the doctor they will perscribe steroids and maybe another course of anti-biotics. There has got to be a natural way to cure me. I've been thinking, should I do a detox? Any ideas?"
06/22/2009: Tavora from Brooklyn, NY replies: "Vanessa - try garlic. A quick blend I like to make when sick is:
- Cut up 6-7 cloves of garlic
- Pit a 1/2 a lemon (with rind) (though in your case a whole lemon would be good)
- Add a tsp of cayenne pepper or turmeric
- 16 oz of spring water
- Kiwi, or green grapes (for vitamin C)
- A tsp of bee pollen
- (Optional: scoop of Acai ___ powder supplement)
Place all in blender and mix until smooth. NOTE: If you use cayenne - it will kick! :0)
If you don't feel up to blending - then try 3-4 drops of Oil of Oregano in 8 ozs of water a day. :)"
06/23/2009: Tilda from Geneva, Switzerland replies: "You might have mono, which requires lots of rest and recovery time, period. It can take months and months, even years to get back to normal. A blood test can confirm that.
Remember too that anti-biotics will wreak havoc on your stomach, often lead to yeast infections and won't do anything for viral infections.
Also, pro-biotics are good (esp. after a round of anti-biotics - not during though - anti-biotics will cancel them out and it's a waste of money.) and a generally varied diet, but with lots of raw (must be raw) garlic - in salads or thrown into soups at the last minute. If you don't want to stink during the day, eat it for dinner, or just crush it into a spoon and swallow it quickly with a big gulp of juice before going to bed - but not on an empty stomach as it can burn.
Another thing that is good for the immune system and recommended by doctors in Europe is a copper, gold, silver liquid/fluid complex. You take several drops under your tongue half an hour before eating, usually just for a short period of time, like a week-long or a month-long "cure", when you're feeling rough, or if something nasty is going around and you want to avoid catching it.
Another thought, get your iron levels checked. Recently I had a similar problem and I happened upon a doctor who checked my iron levels and low iron was my problem (I was a vegetarian for years and low iron affects women more than men because of our monthly cycles - like a slow death by bleeding!). In theory my iron levels were within the norm, but at the low-end and my doctor happened to be up on the latest research which shows that the standard numbers simply aren't valid for everyone. (I'm also a worrier, which will sap your energy and isn't good for immunity.)
A final thought, what happened 3 years ago when your problems started? Did you change your diet (become a vegetarian?)? Start a new job? Get involved in an unhealthy relationship? Move to LA? Maybe it's pollution!
Finally, rest if that's what your body is telling you to do! Don't fight it. These days, we often don't have time to be sick, which will prolong illnesses."
06/23/2009: Gaynor from Manaton, Devon replies: "I had a terrible sinus problems for months- I cured myself finally after trying many different remedies by using a combination of three essential oils thyme oil, cinnamon oil and clove oil. I put three drops of each oil into a face steamer with water and inhaled the vapour. I did this every two hours the first couple of days and then just twice or three times a day when the symptoms started to subside. To maintain my sinuses I continue to do this once a week just one inhalation - it works very effectively the oils seem to kill the virus and bacteria deep in the sinuses. You can use a bowl with hot water and a towel over your to do the inhalations this works also. It is quite painful to start with I depress each nostil in turn as I breathe in sometimes and you can feel the vapour getting to the site of infection. I hope this is helpful."
05/04/2009: Stacy from Bridgeport, CT: "I have not found anything under the ailments section for viral infection. Once or twice a year I get a viral infection with low grade fever and being tired. Last week I started having low grade fever, tired and congested. I did the tomato soup recipe and that cleared up the congestion right away but after being home for a few days (dr. said only thing I can do is rest), I still have low grade fever on and off. If I start to feel good and do things, fever comes back. Does anyone have any remedies for getting rid of the fever and not getting these viral infections?"Replies
02/24/2012: Lloyd from Charlotte, Nc replies: "Colloidal silver kills viruses. I've been making it for years for friends and family and the effect is consistently the same; infection gone. Silver kills virus, bacteria and fungus. Best practice is to use as a nasal irrigation or to gargle, then let drain down back of throat. Repeat fifteen minutes later. Keep repeating until sinus infection is gone.
Some viruses are "coated" and those rare ones must be fought for a week or more with nasal irrigations twice daily or more for a week. If used in nasal passages, best to squirt with an ear syringe a short gentle amount (total maybe thirty drops) on each side. The more dominately infected side will sting a bit with the first usage. Let drain with head leaned back. Hold on to a steady fixture so that you won't get off balance.
For persistent infection, you must take on empty stomach twice daily for at least three months. A properly diluted silver will not cause tinting of the skin. I have made my own for over a decade and given away to friends and never have seen anyone, including me, get any skin tinting. Of course, you can use colloidal silver for ear infections too. Very effective. And for "pink eye. " Use two or three drops twice daily for two days. Do not use over two days in the eyes.
Some viruses may persist in the body and "land" on or in an organ. Indication of such might be soreness in the effected area and especially general body weakness and fatigue. That is a good indication that you may have a viral/ bacterial/ fungal infection, and is more clearly indicated if patient has had an infection/spider bite etc that preceeded the fatigue and/or soreness. Persistent use of silver for at leat three months as described above is then in order. I have had two cases for use of over a year with contiued gradual recovery. But the patient can see a change in such "body wide" infections fairly quickly... Usually within a week. God bless."
06/19/2012: Jdlaughead from Poultney, Vt replies: "Isn't it time we start attacking the Medical Industrial complex, which has become a 8 Trillion dollar racket a year. For what it really is, A Money Pit!
All they want to do is Drug you to death, Doctor you to death, and Bankrupt you to Death.
They are not interested in CURES, for then all the money on medical research would dry up and the doctoring money would dry up and the drug money would dry up.
One of the biggest rackets is Flu Vaccines, which they say there are no cures for the Flu and cold, which is one Big Lie. Go to www.popsci.com/node/22953 or put in your browser
"B-12 cures the Flu" it will come up on 2200 websites! Nasal B-12 will Destroy the Flu and Cold Virus on CONTACT. As far as Cancers go Biopsies can Spread cancers.
Did your Doctor tell you that your PSA count was high, above 4, and they wanted to do a Biopsy, Well, LOOKOUT! Did he give you a prescription for Levaquin? Well put that in your browser and see how many Lawyers are looking for people who have taken that, the side effects can kill you.
Dr. Stamley from Stanford Univ. Stated that after the biospy if the didn't find any cancer the first time, they surly will find it the second time.
Dr. Stamley developed the PSA Test, and said that the doctors were making a racket out of it, and that PSA was only showing the growth of the Prostate and not of cancer. That a lot of operations on the prostate were not needed. Yet a lot of Doctors are still doing the same thing.
Now lets get down to Curing a lot of Diseases from bacteria and Viruses. FASTING!!!! That's right Fasting.
When I lived in Ft. Myers, down the way at Bonito Springs was a Fasting Retreat called Shangra-la I use to see people walk in there who were Basket cases, and 3 weeks later come out almost brand new. I couldn't figure out why? Then on future research on cures for the Flu and Cold and studying the structures of viruses and Bacteria the the major elements were Protein.
Well what happens when you go on a fast, it doesn't take a rocket Scienist to figure it out. You are getting no Protein and neither is the Bacteria or Virus. If Bacteria doesn't get any protein within 5 days, it dies! Viruses 7 to 10 days.
Trouble is there are really no Fasting Retreats in USA, The Medical profession shut them all down, so now you have to go to Europe or Asia. Isn't that nice!"

[QUESTION] 04/20/2009: Katia from Minneapolis, MN: "REMEDIES NEEDED FOR (flu like) BODY ACHES: My Husband has had bad body aches for almost 3 weeks now... but he doesn't have a cough of stuffy sinus like when you have the flu... He went to the Dr (they were no help - go figure!)... and they gave him some Augmentin and he broke out with a serious rash (probably an allergic reaction)... so he quit taking it. Does anyone know what he can do to get rid of the body aches... and rash? I Love Earth Clinic... Thanks So Much!!"Replies
04/20/2009: Joyce from Joelton, Tn replies: "Hi Katia,
If you think your husband's problem is viral I would probably go with L-lysine 2000 mgm mealtime & bedtime for several days and then slow down to 1000 mgm. Linus Paulings recommended 3-6 grams of l-lysine and the same amount of Vitamin C daily to keep the cardiovascular system healthy. Start the vitamin C the same time you start the l-lysine but the vitamin C is utilized better if it is taken more often while awake instead of several grams at one time. You will probably be ok as long as you don't exceed l0 grams of vitamin C daily. Beyond that you can expect some gastric irritation."
04/20/2009: Joyce from Joelton, Tn replies: "Hi again Katia,
I forgot to ask you if your husband has had any tickbites because some of the tick borne diseases start off with flu like symptoms? If so he might consider having blood tests for these!"
04/20/2009: Sherri from Indianapoilis, IN replies: "Hi Katia - If he has the flu, he can try soaking in the bath for 20-30 minutes with 1/2-1 cup of ACV added to it. He can soak as long as he wants and as often as he likes. He might want to have some water with him while soaking to drink to ward off dehydration. The ACV may lessen the duration of the flu or so I am told. Anyway, if he wants to soak in a hot bath without ACV, I found this to be helpful also.
Katia, I have a question for you. Is your husband is taking any medication he has not taken before? If he is, he may be taking a medication that causes Flu Syndrome which is actually a side effect of some medications. I learned about this the hard way and took over a month to figure out why I kept getting sick. I experienced muscle and joint pain as well as headaches. I also had a fever. The symptoms started a few days after I began a new medication it. I was sick 5-6 days a week and couldn't even sleep on 2+ nights out of each week. It was awful. My husband is the one who found that Flu Syndrome is a side effect for the med I was taking. We both had read the printout from the drugstore, but it listed no side effects like the flu. Come to find out, my husband did find Flu Syndrome IS listed as a side effect in technical documentation but not the printout because such a small percentage of people developed Flu Syndrome (as well as some other side effects) in the clinical trials from the drug company. I stopped taking the medication and was 100% better the next day.

[YEA] 01/28/2011: Caitlin from Austin, Tx replies: "For about a week, my right arm, especially the upper shoulder area was killing me with pain. I could not sleep because of it, nor could I rotate my arm to put on a jacket or even touch my back with my right hand. Nights were spent with pain radiating up and down my arm. I'd had this before and it disappeared with a low carb diet which I'd recently been somewhat lax with keeping. Became stricter on the diet but the pain persisted. I tried everything from ACV to cortizone cream. One day I was guided to try the MAGNESIUM OIL sitting in my bathroom. Within 5 minutes of spraying it on my upper & lower arm, the pain was gone and I could rotate my shoulder. Did some reasearch on the magnesium oil and found it is great for bodily pain. I've started including 2 sprays In my coconut oil for my nightly rub-down. It seems the body only absorbs what it needs. I'm so glad I bought the magnesium oil after reading another poster's comments. Thanks, earth clinic - Again, I'm one happy camper!"
02/24/2009: Chris from Canton, Ohio: "Recurring Viruses in 6 year old son:
My son has gotten recurring viruses this winter. Just learned they share crayons and everything else in his class room. He is on his 2nd virus after only being well for 1 1/2 weeks. Is there a way to get rid of a virus faster and any ways to keep up his immune system? It seems he gets sick ALL the time. Please give include measurements of what works. He is a tough child that does not take meds very easily and doing anything out of the norm is tough to get him to do.
Thanks for your help for this tired mom!!!"
