Coumadin, Wayfarin   0  0   

Posted by Sid (Pittsburgh, Pa.) on 07/28/2012

I was on Protonix and Plavix because I have 2 stents. But since I had to have a Pacemaker I must be on wayfarin/coumadin all the time, and with the Protonix I'm super tired all the time. Is there a natural remedy for my jittery-upset stomach that will work well with the wayfarin/coumadin?

Your question should say.... What is something naturally one can take instead of warfarin (AKA rat poison/wikipedia)? Also, what naturally to take instead of a prescribed PPI? One beneficial place to start your research (after EarthClinic), for both warfarin and PPI's, is People's Pharmacy, which also has reader feedback at the bottom of the page after each of their articles. A must read for everyone is Dick Quinn's "Left for Dead". It is an excellent informative book explaining his experiences with the medical world after a heart attack, and his natural remedy findings that kept him alive after a botched surgery.

Hi Sid, I am highly suspicious when doctors tell people that they have to be on some medication all the time and for their whole life. I had a friend who kept having acid reflux and was very overweight. She told me she went to the Dr. and they told her she needed to take a medication for GERD for the rest of her life. I said that wasn't true, there were plenty of strategies to rid it and not have to be on medication. When she asked what, I told her. Her response was, "I think I'll just use the medication." In her mind, what I was telling her was too much work. And yes, restoring our health can take work but it allows our body to find its own balance and restore our immune system.

Perhaps you can find the natural remedies to help your body find its most optimum. The mere fact that the meds are causing you to be super tired all the time and give you a jittery stomach should be an indication of the damage they're doing. Try exploring ways to help your body restore all its systems and bring it back to optimum health in spite of the stents. Here's to your health, Lisa

Diabetes and High Blood Pressure Meds   0  0   

Posted by Babette (Pasig City, Philippines) on 10/09/2013

Pls. Help me. Doctors prescribed me many meds for my diabetes, BP, heart, & blood thinning. When I take these meds I experience chest pains, tightening of chest, difficulty breathing, headache and weakness. If I omit some, I feel a little better and my BP remains normal at 120/80. What must I do. I had this DM since 2000 after my 3rd and last conception. I've been to many doctors hoping to find one who prescribes meds with lesser side effects and not threatening as well.

Dear Babette,

It sounds like you are hoping to find safe and natural remedies for your health conditions so you won't need to take the prescription medications that are making you feel worse? Are you actually taking any medication right now?

There are some things you can try that may help several of your problems. Raw Unpastuerized Apple Cider Vinegar is used to help diabetes and lower blood pressure. Cayenne Pepper is a natural blood thinner and nutritious for your heart. Those are the two things I would consider starting with. But since you have many things going on, you don't want to try a lot at once; you will want to watch your symptoms and see how things are working. You could try 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar in a glass of water twice a day. See how that does. The next week, increase it to 2 teaspoons in a glass of water each day. You can move up to 3 teaspoons in a glass of water twice a day.

Cayenne Pepper - Start with 1/4 teaspoon in a few ounces of water or juice twice a day. Move up to 1/2 teaspoon twice a day. But you might want to wait until you are settled on the vinegar before trying this, so you can see what is helping you.

Meanwhile, keep reading what others are doing to improve their diabetes, blood pressure, etc on Earth Clinic. Sometimes you just have to "be your own doctor. " But as you study and learn and make changes here and there, hopefully you will begin to feel better.

Please keep us posted on your progress!

Flagyl   0  0   

Posted by Lacey (Sacramento, Ca) on 11/28/2011

Hi there,

I was perscribed Flagyl (Metronidazole) on Thursday. I understand how serious it is to not drink alcohol with this medication and asked my Dr., with it being my birthday on Friday, if I'd be able to drink then. She said finish on Thursday and I will be fine Friday. Every bit of research I do says I should wait 3 days to cleanse it out of my system. I'm confused whether that 3 days is just DR. precautionary or what. So here's where you guys come in. I'm much more into holistic approaches anyway, and this medication has already been bothering me a bit. I have been taking probiotics like crazy, and am wondering if there is a way to flush it out of my system faster, or even end it one day early. So I guess my questions are:

Is Dandelion Root tea, or anything of the like an option for me?

How serious is the "super bug" scare if stopping an antibiotic early, with my probiotic combo?

Thanks in advance!

Leviquin   0  0   

Posted by Debbie (Geneva, Il, Usa) on 06/01/2012

[SIDE EFFECTS]  HELP! 2 months ago I had a severe case of cellulitis in my lower left leg. MD put me on 500mg of Leviquin for 2 months now. It has gotten to the point where I can no longer stand up without assistance. Switched MD's. Ordered off the leviquin. Today is better but pain in knees, forearms and shoulders still present. I started Oil Pulling a week ago, along with ACV in water. Is there anything else I can be doing to flush this nasty drug and its side effects out of my system? I have to add that the fear that was instilled in me of the possiblity of losing my leg kept me from stopping this drug. Thank you in advance for any advice you can give me.

I took levaquin for a couple of weeks, 4 months apart and had tendonitis in my arm and hip inflammation. I ended up getting physical therapy at the hospital for the pain. It helped tremendously. I used MSM mostly, the cream and the pills. But I don't think I did enough in general. The issue with levaquin is the effect on the joints and the inflammation. I would look on the site and see what is good for that. Sorry I am not much more help, but just wanted you to know others have experienced this also.

I was on Leviquin for a while and it nearly runied my health.

I have been eating plenty of probiotic rich foods several times daily (even a tablespoon at a time is fine) of homemade sauerkraut, kefir, kombucha, kimchi and lacto-fermented veggies. I also juice daily AM a green veggie juice to increase the enzymes in my body. Juice contains celery cucumber, ginger, parsley and juice of 1 lemon.

I can say I am 95% back to normal now.

You can fine more info on feremented foods and hot to make them cheaply at home at this link http://culturedfoodlife.com/

If you buy any of these items in a grocery store, get them from the refrigerated section which will allow the probiotic strands to stay alive, otherwise it is useless in terms of getting well.

Let me know if you have any specific questions, and good luck :)

Hi, I seem to have what feel like dots on the roof of my mouth. I have got my mother to look at the roof of my mouth and she says that there is nothing visible. I have stopped brushing my teeth last thing at night as all the toothpaste that I use seems to be causing a very bad burning sensation, and as a result I now seem to be getting a build up at the back of my tongue which I presume might have something to do with it. I take lyrica medication which causes me to have very bad hypersensitivity. Even when I am lying in bed on my back, my back feels to be burning. I cannot sleep on my side as the burning on the side of the breasts is just too intense to tolerate. I can only presume that is a side effect of the medication. Thank you.

Hi, is it safe to take high amount of antioxidants while on medication? I presume they help the body detox? Will it interfere with efficacy of medication, or even stop them from working? Thanks.

Multiple Medication Problems   0  0   

Posted by Richard (Menlo, Iowa) on 11/02/2010

I'm looking for input from anyone who has ever had anything like this happen to them. First a little background. This last year has been the longest and worst of my 58 years. It started with Gout that took 8 months to get diagnosed. I was put on Prednisone, Allopurinal & Colchicine. The Pred. caused my heart to pound and skip beats so I was put on Bystolic for that in June, although it zapped my energy my blood pressure and heartbeat were fine.

Then the first week of Sept. The muscle in my left eye started having spasms with caused my vision to bounce all over(very upsetting) I went to two different Md's and an Ophthalmologist, then to a Neurologist who did an MRI(which turned out fine) They all told me to stay calm and it would settle down in a week or so. Well it took just over a month before it stopped.

Then about a week later I got a little twitch in my left thumb, in the next couple of days I had them in my toes, arches, calves, knees, thighs and just about any place that has a muscle to twitch. I went back to the Neurologist. He says that I have Myokymia and wanted to give me an anti-seizure drug to try, he said it wouldn't cure it but it might help. He said it was more like a band aid. I took a pass on it for now. I started Transderal Magnesium Therapy 12 days ago hoping for some relief from this, thinking I might be magnesium deficient. So far there may be some slight improvement. I also asked all these doctors if any of my meds would have anything to do with this. I got a no from all of them.

Anyway here's my list of meds. Terazosin 5mgs, fosinopril 20mgs, allopurinol 200mgs, colchicine 0.6 mgs 2 X a day and the last one is bystolic 5mgs that was added to the mix about 10 weeks before all this started. If anyone has any thoughts or input, it would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like you have gotten into the vicious circle of trying to cure one thing & now chasing side effects from the drugs. Unfortunately, drugs do not cure. Even one of your doctors said that. For your original problem, gout, it's a diet related dis-ease. Clean up your diet. Then you can get off the drugs. Bet the other problems will disappear.

Hi Richard,

I would be asking the Dr why you are on three medications for blood pressure one of which has as a possible side effect of Hypomagnesemia. This may explain the twitches. Also why the two different medications for gout. As gout can cause hypertension you may not need the meds once your gout is gone. Gout can be treated naturally. Cherries or cherry juice are amazing. There is info here about gout, just do a search but tick the highlight box to make it easier.

My husband got gout out of the blue one morning, the Dr put him on Voltarin even though he had previously had a stomach ulcer, well it took only one tablet for the stomach pains to start. We got a bottle of cherry juice and that fixed it. At the time we were away from home so diet played a part in getting it. Five years later not one more bout. Some studies say 8 cherries a day, whilst some say only 6. About 15 years ago my father started on the gout meds, since then he still gets bouts of gout even though he is on meds. He now takes other meds for side effects. He would not try anything natural so he continues on the roundabout. Good luck in finding your answer.

JB, I tried every Gout remedy out there from change of diet, ACV, cherrys, green tea, baking soda, you name it I did it. Nothing worked. It's not all about diet. Even vegatareins get Gout. If there's a history of it in your family you can get it. It can also be triggered by high blood pressure pills that have a diuredict in them. When your in so much pain you can't walk 15 feet to the bathroom without it bering tears to your eyes. And that goes on for months. You will try anything to take the pain and swelling away. The Pred. did that for me but it may have also started my heart acting up. The Allopurinol keeps the uric acid level down and the Colchichine (which I hope to get off of in the next few months) keeps the pain at bay. The Terazosin and the Fosinopril are for high blood pressure and I've taken them for years with no problems. That's why I'm leaning toward the Bystolic which I started about 10 weeks before the spasms kicked in. I'm going to call my heart doctor later to get his thoughts on this but since he put me on the Bystolic I'm sure he'll say it couldn't be that. I would like to hear other opinions on this. Thanks Richard

Maria, as I said I tried everything to cure my Gout. No luck. As far as the meds. The Hytrin is for both HBP and prostrate health. The Fosinopril dosen't have the water pill in it so I don't if it leaches out Magnesium or not. The Bystolic stopped my heart for skipping beats and pounding. But if it's causing the muscle spasms I'm sure there's another med I could take that would do the same. Thanks for the replies. RICHARD

Well it's been two weeks since I started the Magnesium soaks and it doesn't seem to be doing any good. Anyone know how long it takes for your body to get the full effects of this? One site that sell the oil says 6 to 12 weeks but people on here have said it works for them in a few days. Last night was awful my body was twitching all over. I got very little sleep the mental side of this is worst I don't know how much more of this I can take. I'm still thinking the Bystolic may have triggered this. Any thought and prayers would be welcome. Thanks. Richard

Hi Richard, Personally I never got relief from muscle twitching by using foot soaks or baths with magnesium in them. Although I have never used magnesium chloride only epsom salts. It certainly helped with muscle pain though. For me I found the magnesium had to be taken internally to work for the twitching.

You may be surprised to know that it's not too much meat or heredity that is causing your gout. You are likely consuming too much high fructose corn syrup, which is NOTORIOUS for raising uric acid levels AND causing hypertension. It IS all related to diet, you just haven't been given all the facts. Read labels, they stick corn syrup in everything from bread to catsup and more. Good luck!

I agree with the diet. If you have frequent bouts with gout, it shouldn't be too difficult to discover whats causing it.

My husband has a pretty bad weakness when it comes to chocolate peanut butter cups not one or two at once.. It was the whole package!

Anway, his gout would flare up on a bi-weekly basis. After we moved in together, he put on quite a few pounds and started cutting back and he behaved hisself. Really, when it came to meals nothing changed. Then I realized it had to be the chocolate. I tested it one night.. We both sat on the couch and pigged out on peanut butter cups. Sure enough, next morning he woke up ready to cut his own foot off!

He misses it badly but not enough to go through that again! Good luck finding your trigger food(s)!

Skin Problems

Dear all: I need help! A little background, I'm a Gulf War Vet and I came back and developed uncontrolled Asthma. My doctors perscribed a battery of drugs including Prednisone, Theophylin, Singulair, Zyrteck D, Nexium for acid reflux, Prevastatin for high cholesterol and Gabapentin for peripheral neuropathy. I've also gained 70 lbs.

I've been very concerned with the amount of meds I'm taking and now its seeming to come home. I have a large patch of 'ringworm' on my ankle and I'm developing rashes on my inner thigh and ribs. My doc told me it was because I have a suppresed imune system due to the drugs. My skin is also very dry, very thin and tears at the least little thing. Yesterday, while horseback, I brushed by a tree limb and tore two gouges in my arm, both about an inch long and V shaped. They are only through the skin which seems to have a consistency of a ripe tomato. Needless to say, I've very depressed. I've always been very active with horses, dogs, hiking and camping. Now I'm stuck with rotten skin, fat and ugly.

I've started taking the ACV and honey in the morning,spiking my water with ACV and this morning I took a 30 minute soak in hot water with 1/2 cup of ACV in it.

My plan is to wean myself off the prednisone this year as I've become physically dependant on it. But I do suffer from withdrawal symptoms from it when I've tried before.

Any other suggestions? Can someone help me? I'm desperate!!

What I do know is during that time of Gulf war vaccines which cause Gulf War Syndrome were of U.S. origins. In any event, much of Saddam Husseins bioweapons were technologies developed also by the U.S. to support his war. As a result, my guess is to find a remedy to counter whatever was used during that period. At the time, I believe microbiologist's interest in biowarfare was at its peak on the issue of fungus, mycotoxins,as a bioweapons on killing off the population slowly. The others were probably unique virus strains and bacteria. I have no way of knowing those except superficial observations of symptoms only. These are more secretive then CIA's experiment on Tuskagee or spraying on unsuspecting civilian population in New York Subway or Chicago subway.

At the time of the development, the vaccines were suppose to contain high amounts of fungus as the cause of autoimmunity and blood fungal infections and toxicity from fungus. As to the live virus and bacteria in those vaccines they can kill the immune system also, biggest problem is once they take hold inside the body getting rid of them is another thing, which is isn't easy.

Mycoplasma was virtually unknown before the 1980s (not widespread), but because of the discovery for use as a bioweapons by the U.S. military (you can find their U.S. patents), the mycoplasma is now virtually everywhere contaminating petri dishes in laboratories throughout the world. As a result the most interesting remedy against the Gulf War syndrome is to deal with these mycoplasma. It's major mechanism is autoimmunity and immune suppression, depending on the species.

As to the bacterium and virus, which can last forever inside a human body found in vaccines, I haven't quite be able to deal with that except to some extent through the use of trace chlorine dioxide through the use of sodium chlorite 25% drops reacted with citric acid or vinegar, in only reducing their numbers found inside the body introduced from the vaccines.

So my main concern appears to be the fungus and fungal toxins, which they do thrive in presence of high heavy metal preservatives and chemical preservatives. Their weaknesses appear to be alkaline, most ammonium compounds, chromium, copper, boron (found in borax), manganese, acetates (as in vinegar), chlorides (as in Hydrochloric acid) and molybdenum, based on my own observations.

Those fungus feed on them are sugar, honey, maple syrup, mushrooms, peanuts, and mollasses. Those that encourage their growth are the hydrocarbons (benzene, gasoline fumes), aspartate, aspartame, Equal, and many artificial sugars, except for polyol sugars such as xylitol, mannitol, and mannose for example. The one major problem are that most sugarless gums contain aspartame in a xylitol chewing gums and aspartate is found in many supplements. It makes for a boon in unethical supplements as people do not generally read the labels, these common ingredients are aspartate in potassium supplements, aspartate in other forms such as magnesium aspartate.

Today in the development of bioweapons, it's even more difficult through bioengineering and altering the human genes through introduction of GMO and gene altering viruses if added to vaccines. Therefore the approach of the remedy is likely to focus on the simpler things: fungus (mycobacterium, mycoplasma) and heavy metals.

Don't ask me about reversing changes in genetic level in making people sick. There's no way I can find a remedy for that one! A new strain of deadly viruses are somewhat more manageable than the use of genetic engineering as a weapons to kill enemies through dispersion techniques such as chemtrails, GMO, GMO pollination through spraying. Those are very difficult to counter with any known remedies, but I believe the success of any major population reduction (current policy is 90% reduction) will be the creation of a benign common cold virus that changes human DNA on a genetic level which prevents human reproduction through alterations of hormones or destruction of the immune system. Hormone alterations are more difficult since preparations in a vaccines to prevent pregnancy are almost akin to a homeopathic vaccine preparation so the body can reject it s own hormones inducing miscarriage, which is presently use as I understand through WHO programs and was found out by the Phillipine hospital at the time.

As to a way to counter these newer viral vaccines is through our own ability to prevent virus from entering into the system (e.g. catching colds and extensive use of vaccines with live virus that alters DNA at a genetic level). I think lysine and magnesiun chloride my help only a little.

Most vaccines, perhaps especially the Gulf War vaccines very likely contains high amounts of fungus, mycoplasma, mycotoxins (such as aflatoxins). Those have a unique ability on two things depending on the kinds of fungus, either suppresses the immune functions or cause the glandular systems such as thyroid to be either hypothyroidism (by fungal irritants) or hyperthyroidism (by blocking nutrients) and also killing off the thymus, which is the body's major immune system. Obviously getting employment through the use of chest x rays, vaccinations will shorten a person's lifespan by killing off body's normal immune system to virtually zero. At the presence the success of this policy can be seen where children today are not expected to have a life expectancy longer then their parents.

Since your inquiry into the skin that is currently having the strength of a tomato, or skin that just gets loose as easily it appears that the skin is rotting through a flesh eating sort of bacterium but the drying of the skin appears to be certain fungus which requires oil as its major food source.

The only flesh eating I have experience is the staphyloccus bacteria kind, not the Ebola virus type. To counteract these, I would take plenty of magnesium such as magnesium citrate, magnesium chloride form. I would NOT use magnesium aspartate or any aspartate form as these are excitotoxins.

A magnesium chloride solution such as a 25% solution is applied thinly without rinse for an hour or to to neutralize some of them. As another possibility to restore the skin's suppleness if the drying of the skin were due to fungus content in the Gulf War vaccines, the simplest remedy is to soak the skin for about anywhere from a couple of seconds to a hour, depending on the extent of the skin damage and dryness, using plain White distilled vinegar, as it is cheaper to use this since large quantities will be used or applied, to kill off the fungus which caused the drying skin.

Vinegar's strong points are that they kill off fungus if they are soaked for 30 minutes, such as the feet to restore the skin's dryness back when they were used in Chinese remedy against a foot or toenail fungus. This can be applied also on Gulf war syndrome on drying skin from the fungus feeding on the skin to dryness. I think it should be soaked about twice a day.

In other application I used it as a skin washing solution to remove the unremovable dirty skin on the sole feet for example, and cracking feet as well as certain cases of cracking skin induced by a fungus or excessive calcification of the skin. In excessive calcification of the skin, if that were at issue, I would use Tetrasodium EDTA as a soap solution to wash off the excessive calcification, which is responsible for cracking skin, but not necessarily drying skin as in the use of vinegar.

In any event a vinegar kills the fungus and has some properties which dose remove excessive calcium from the skin causing cracking of the skin too. So the use of ACV is helpful in giving suppleness of the vascular system of the body and it's tissue so the body function.

However, I don't agree to the use of honey as they are sugar and in proper dilution actually allows the fungus to feed off from higher blood sugar. Therefore, I would much prefer the use of 2 tablespoon of ACV plus 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda, taken several times a day, mixed in 1/2 to 1 glass of water. But to reduce cost, I may use the vinegar as an applicator or a skin wash to be applied for a couple of minutes and then rinse off a couple of times during the early evening hours, so the next day most of the vinegary smell (which do exist after rinsing) should mostly be gone the next day.

It should be noted that other supplements helpful in killing off mycoplasma are as follows:

1. Potassium citrate (technical name tripotassium citate) with Sodium bicarbonate. That's 1/4 teaspoon of each in a glass of water, three times a day.
2. Chromium. Usually 1500-2000 mcg. a day.
3. Copper , usually in form of amino acid chelate, 2 mg for a couple of weeks, before spacing them to only once a week, then later perhaps once a month.
4. Vinegar with baking soda is better then ACV with honey as it doesn't disturb the body's pH buffering mechanism such as bicarbonates. The vinegar remedy I prefer is 2 tablespoon of vinegar plus 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda in a glass or 1/2 glass of water. Perhaps twice a day.
5. Manganese is 25 mg taken for about a month before gradually reducing them to a couple of times a week.
6. Molybdenum, is taken at 10 mg, if you can find them! In the form of sodium molybdate, but they can be taken I think at higher dosage without problems.
7. Borax is dissolved 1/4 teaspoon in one liter of drinking water.
8. Reduction of heavy metals to starve the fungi such as cilantro.
9. Support of the liver function by detoxification through hydrogen peroxide drops and granulated lecithin. The hydrogen peroxide food grade drops are 10 drops of 3% H2O2 per glass of water. The granulated lecithin are at least one tablespoon per day.

If weakness is noted, those are more often virus being introduced in vaccines, common contaminants are Epstein Barr virus and perhaps many others. Perhaps 1000 mg - 3000 mg of Lysine to kill off those. But alto helpful are the addition of 500 mg of Magnesium citrate or magnesium chloride. I don't use any magnesium aspartate as they do more harm then good. If malic acid can be found, then I would use 1/2 teaspoon to 1 teaspoon of malic acid plus equal amounts of baking soda to neutralize the acid. The malic acid seems to kill off certain virus causing fibromyalgia and also gives the cells the energy needed to detox as well as malic acid is a good chelator of aluminum.

Most sulfur compounds reduce mercury buildup that is used in vaccines, and MSM 1000-4000 mg, and sodium thiosulfate 10% solution used as drops added t drinking water may help, but cannot be taken at the same time with a hydrogen peroxide remedy.

In any event, the healing of the skin may be help with this mixture: 5% lavedner oil plus 95% aloe vera oil applied to the skin only after washing the skin with vinegar solution for a couple of minutes followed by a simple water rinse and dry it before applying them is a possibility. Some vitamin E added to the mix help reduce scars. It's applied only thinly to the skin area. If wound are opened larger, perhaps vaseline gauze may help prevent infection afer applying iodine tincture to the area.

If taken the supplements for a while, some vitamin B complex is required to reverse the weakness and vitamin C sodium ascorbate to help healng, such as B50 once a day and 1000 mg of sodium ascobate vitamin C.

In any event, the legalization of Codex Alimentarius by the U.S and Canada through Bill C-51 would virtually guarantee that this remedy can't be use because none of these supplements can be obtained.

Therefore, to understand whether you will have supply problems or not by the end of 31 December 2009, a couple of introductory videos might be helpful here:

Some analysis of the medication:

Prednisone this may have caused the weight gain. Baking soda and potassium citrate, or alkalization remedy may reduce the inflammation. A carbicarb with potassium might work better, that's 1/8 teaspoon sodium carbonate (washing soda) 1/8 teaspoon sodium bicarbonate plus 1/8 teaspoon of potassium citrate. Certain hormonal substitute against inflammation causes less problem, such as weight gain, but a larger dose maybe necessary that I think maybe helpful is pregnenolone, anywhere from 10-50 mg. A DHEA may have anti inflammatory properties too at 25 mg, and in some cases 50 mg. but has an opposite effect in causing weight loss as opposed to weight gain. Both of these, DHEA and pregnenolone I also take them together. Magnesium citrate 250-500 has anti-inflammatory properties too. If inflammation is caused by mycoplasma or mycobacterium, from those vaccines, magnesium helps in that case, as well as chromium at 1000-3000 mcg. Selenium 200-1000 mcg is also helpful against mycoplasma induced inflammation.

Nexium. I used baking soda with potassium to reduce most major acid reflux as mentioned above. WHen the body's bicarbonates are low and fungus like bacteria grows, they might even cause the acid reflux. A hydrogen peroxide drops might help also that's 10 drops at 3% per glass of water. Baking soda usually 1/2 teaspoon twice a day is often taken for about 2-3 weeks before the symptoms of acid reflux reduce. Potassium also helps, but in the form of potassium citrate.

Prevastatin. A suitable natural substitute is the granulated lecithin one tablespoon taken before each meal will dissolve some of the cholesterol. Lemon juice with a small amount baking soda also helps. Red yeast rice is another one. Green tea helps. However, switching to almost all vegetarian diet for a month at least should see a major fall in cholesterol levels. The vegetables should generally be eaten raw. Vegetable soups and salads are some examples. And this major one month switch should have major effect in increasing the body's enzyme.

To further confirm the fungus theory of Gulf War, a hair mineral analysis sent by email to me, I should be able to determine their fungus footprint. In any event their pattern is seen from hair mineral analysis as low in the following: potassium, chromium, boron, manganese, tungsten, magnesium, selenium, and molybdenum. The actual hair mineral analysis won't cover everything. While it will be high in calcium, sodium, fluoride, In some cases victims of war also reported high in uranium in the hair mineral analsysis from depleted uranium used in weaponry A viral or bacterial footprint of hair mineral analysis however, won't give the same patterns, however.

You could try coconut oil on your skin. It might help with the ringworm, and rash. It is an antifungal, and smells fantastic. I would wait to try eating it, as your body might have a really bad die off. When you take that many meds you insides have become more hospitable to bad bacteria. You may also want to look at Lacto-Fermented foods such as kefir, ginger beer, and sauerkraut.

Debi, I highly recommend getting off the Prednisone asap - my experience is it really does beat down the immune system. Also, I have heard of a clinic --my chiropractor tells me they may be able to help you in overcoming the effects of these drugs - you are on a lot of things right now. I saw a photographic exhibition of people who are very ill having worked at the World Trade Center after 911. Many of them are on 10-12 drugs a day. I have an associate who takes so much prednisone that I see her body breaking down slowly but surely. You really have to concern yourself with getting your immune system back in balance right now.

The ACV will definately help you with the weight loss. Drink LOTS of spring water to help with that too. Good luck.

Naproxen Sodium   0  0

I took Naproxen Sodium for pain relief from joint pain. After taking it for two weeks I developed a very painful mouth. My doctor states I had burned my mouth with this medication. It has been a month now and I still can't taste my food. How long will it take for the taste to return? What can I do to enhance the taste of foods?

Opiate Painkillers   0  0

For years I been treated for Fibromalgia, Chronic pain, Neuropathic pain ETC. I kpet telling the Doctors and specialist I was 95% the Opiate Painkiller I was put on was causing the unbearable pain and other symptoms I had they kept saying NO and giving me ever stronger ones. I have been desperately trying to find an answer to this unbearalble pain and what I found has been known about since 1900? It's this.

Opioid-induced hyperalgesia I am so angry!!! All I can find on the web is more drugs for it and THEY CAN CAUSE IT???? I CAN'T FIND ANY 'HOLISTIC' things on it or how to cure it only Pharma and I don't want that!! PLEASE CAN ANYONE HELP!!

Opioid-induced hyperalgesia[1] or opioid-induced abnormal pain sensitivity, [2] also called paradoxical hyperalgesia[3] is a phenomenon associated with the long term use of opioids such as morphine, hydrocodone, oxycodone, and methadone. Over time, individuals taking opioids can develop an increasing sensitivity to noxious stimuli, even evolving a painful response to previously non-noxious stimuli (allodynia). Some studies on animals have also demonstrated this effect occurring after only a single high dose of opioids.... More: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opioid-induced_hyperalgesia

Hello Andrea C from Wales,

Re the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia ...

AND the overuse of opiates.

Well, as usual the trend in Western medicine is to treat the symptom and not the cause. I argue that viral infection is heavily linked to many "mystery cause" illnesses.

Google, "Phoenix Rising, Dr. Dantini" and you'll find an MD that contends there is a relationship between infection and CFS and FM. Dr. Dantini uses a number of anti viral drugs. I have used for 20 years Colloidal Silver. Keep the mind open for such anti virals. Zappers/ MMS/Rife technology. Herbals.

So the first step for anyone suffering from CFS or FM or one who is addicted to the opiates which cause other pain issues, is to get to the cause of the underlying issue. Then, the matter of addiction to the prescription drugs becomes more focused. Cleansing the system of the opiated residues becomes vital and I'd be looking on Earth Clinic sites for cleanses.

The "lemon" cleanse is one. Half a lemon in glass of water, ten times a day for two weeks cleanses down to the cellular level. The Texas Minister Lester Roloff used Watermelons ... a three day FAST with only watermelon ... to cleanse drug addicted adolescents who came to his "girls home" in Texas needing help.

I am so sorry you are facing two problems and know how frustrated and angry you are. What you are facing is now getting national attention. Just tonight on the national news I saw a special on how drug addiction that results in thousands of deaths each year, starts with a pathway drug of prescription pain killers.

Oxycontin   0  0   

Posted by Dave (Fountain Inn, Sc) on 06/08/2014

[WARNING!]  Here's an alert to those who are dealing with prescription pain medication. Be alert to the problem of colon impaction when taking pain meds...especially Oxycontin. This is a common problem; taking prescription pain meds "relax" the intestines and make uptake of food harder. Literally. Constipation is common and then if bad; impacting might follow.

The above info is common knowledge. But this fact is not common knowledge, even with Hospice Nurses...

What will often be prescribed is a standard twice a day pain killer and nausea killer. Often that pain killer will be Oxycodone. Then another pain killer will be alternated for pain that is NOT the Oxycodone; it is normally Oxycontin (might be a "take as needed").

Here's the big problem: The Oxycontin will NOT dissolve and actually becomes a gummy, gooey hard "pea" sized lump in the intestines. IF the patient is having constipation problems (normal), then the use of Oxycontin will create MORE constipation problems as the gooey/hard core will add to the impacting in the intestine.

Well, the patient cannot eat with a blockage. So in a case where the patient is already in trouble, the use of Oxycontin will add to the problem...creating impacting of a hard gooey mass. If you have access to these two drugs just crush up an Oxycodone (easy to crush and dissolve in water) and then just try to do the same with the Oxycontin. Once you finally get it crushed, add some water...even something with an acidic base...and you will get a gooey hard core. That core will impact. Just use your finger to feel what I'm taking about; the lingering, pea shaped core will stick in a tacky goo to your fingers. Imagine that (say 20 in a five day period) in your intestines where there is already very little movement.

In some cases this situation could become life or death.

Solution is ... not to give Oxycontin to a patient with any sign of constipation. But it is an almost foregone conclusion that constipation WILL follow prescription pain meds.

I've tried using Essential Oils as a substitute...for instance, Lavender for pain. I put on wrists and then just tasting the Lavender gets the oils into the system.

[SIDE EFFECTS]  3 Weeks ago, I went to the dentist to have my impacted tooth removed. He has given me Augmentine antibiotics and Ponstan SF painkillers. I have drank the Ponstan 3 times a day bet. 4-6 hours and for a week. On the 7th day, my stomach was really paining beyond words. I was rushed to the ER. The doctor said it is bad to drink painkillers as well antibiotics all at the same time and in a very near time interval. Since then on, the pain in my upper stomach never vanished. The cramps pain alot especially in the morning then it subsides through out the day but still there is a constant pain. I went to the first doctor and I had endoscopy. He saw erosions in my stomach and concluded it was Gastritis. He gave me Prevacid and Vometa as my medication. After 1 week I went back to him and he is hesitant why the pain has not yet lessen. I got fed up I went to a 2nd doctor. He told me not to be worried. He gave me Mucosta, Pantoprix and Ganaston for my Gastritis. Now almost a month, I cry every morning because of the pain and yet nothing has been changed. I have been taking my 2nd medication for a week now. But how I wish there is at least little improvement. I'm waiting to finish my meds. Next week and go to see the doctor again. I am very depressed because nothing seems to work. Has anybody experienced the same experience as mine? Can anybody please help me how to go through this and at least feel a little relief. I am drinking camomile tea for 2 days now. I'm trying everything I can to improve my situation. I need to be well since I need to Migrate to another country. Please help me in your own little way. THANKSSSSSS!

Paracetamol   0  0   

Posted by Koh Chun (Tutong, Brunei) on 06/09/2013

I am weak and very tired. I can't stand cold, heat and stress. I lose a lot of weight. Every 2 or 3 days, my stomach would feel uneasy and my head "spinny".

I hate taking paracetamol everytime I am feverish. I try to stall as long as I can until I can stand no more, then reluctantly I take 1 tablet Panadol soluble (500mg).

What would be the best list of alternatives to paracetamol, from herbs to safer chemicals?

Radioactive Tracer Injection   0  0   

Posted by Jill (Rochester, Kent United Kingdom) on 02/24/2011

[WARNING!]  Last December I had a radioactive tracer injection (TecheScan) prior to a bone scan. I have been extremely unwell ever since. I have been told repeatedly there are no side effects to this medication and therefor my health problems must be caused by something else. I have looked up the (rare) side effects of this injection, I have many of them. The quality of my life is nil. I am getting gradually worse. I am now unable to eat. I am 68. Has anyone else had a problem with this medication. Any suggestions will be gratefully received. Jill

Hi Jill,
Bone scan is done by injection isotops of Iodine. You should take Iodine supplements to push the radioactivity away. Antioxidants also might help you. The so called modern medecine is irrational and Doctors believe it's rational. There is no serious studies about theses new scans and imageries. Some studies show that there is a high risk of cancer from CT scan. They use so much radiation that can cause all kinds of cancer to detect cancer. What a joke.
