[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  Polycystic Kidney and Liver disease

Hi Ted from Bangkok, at the age of 35, I was diagnosed with PKD and PLD. I was also diagnosed with H pylori and uncontrollable high blood pressure. This year I will be 50 and have more medical issues. I now have 2 bulging disc, herniated disc and a pinch nerve in the C-5, C-6 and C-7. I also have degenerative disc in the L-4, L-5, and S-1, I have head tremors, fibromyalgia with muscle pain all over my body, with severe muscle cramps especially around the neck and shoulders due to the head tremors, eczema, hiatial hernia, edema all over the body, I have lost a lot of hair, and I have several dry patches on my right hand. It took the doctors about 2 years to find medicine that would lower my blood pressure. I now take Atenol and Lisinipril with hctz, which does control my high blood pressure during the day but rises at night while I'm sleeping. I am 20 pounds overweight and my diet for the biggest part of my life and still is foods with a lot of sugar. I now don't eat beef, pork, coffee, tea or chocolate, and very little bread, or pastas due to stomach swelling. I also try to avoid salads, wheat, popcorn, raisins and nuts because it causes diarrhea for days and won't stop so I go to the doctor and they give me what is called a Prev pack with 14 days of antibiotics and Prevacid which works. I try to eat a lot of vegetables, chicken, fish and turkey.

About a week ago, I found earthclinic.com, and I started taking the baking soda 1/2 tsp and citric acid 1/2 tsp. I do feel better with muscle movement, and am feeling like I have more energy, but not cured of all of my illnesses. I want to take the ACV, but I am afraid that it will upset my stomach and cause the H-pylori to start up again. I work at a job that requires a lot of sitting, 80% of my work is sitting in front of a computer typing. I can't sleep on either side of my body because my arms go numb. At night, I use carpal tunnel braces on both of my hands and it helps very little. I don't sleep much at night due to the muscle aches in my body. Can you please help?

Jenette: The Rocky Mountain chess champion told me that he was a mediocre player when he thought of all the problems. Thinking of the solution made him better. The solution is enzymes. Enzymes are a mixture of raw nutrients that have more electrons than protons. Enzymes are to nutrients as oxygen is to gasoline. Activated barley has the most enzymes with the highest energy levels. Second is live ferments. Third is raw organic produce and raw grass fed animal products. Enzymes do everything. They nourish the cells, detox the poisons, and zap the pathogens with electricity.

I'm a 41-year-old female with several ailments. I have had type II diabetes for about nine years now, suffering from chronic hyperglycemia. Also, in the past year I have been diagnosed with Systemic Lupus Erythematosis and Rheumatoid Arthritis. I believe I also have osteoarthritis, as I snap-crackle-pop more than a box of Rice Krispies.

I have several questions and would appreciate any help or advice:

1. I have been taking ACV for a little over two weeks now. When I take the ACV (1 tsp in 4 to 6 oz of water upon rising and also before dinner) the snap-crackle-pop seems to increase, as well as the pain, to some degree (in some ways I feel better and somewhat more energetic). However, if I take 1/2 tsp baking soda with it, which I have been doing for over a week now, it stops (snap crackle pop greatly decreases). I realize due to the leeching of vitamins and minerals from your body if you take baking soda for too long, you shouldn't do this more than a week at a time. However, as soon as I leave out the baking soda, again I am in pain and bones are cracking. WHY the difference? Should I just keep taking the ACV with the baking soda in it?

2. Why would I hurt when taking calcium? I have a supplement (liquid) that has a proprietary blend of calcium, magnesium, and vitamin D (and zinc, too, I believe). It hurts to take any milk or any calcium fortified foods. Turnip greens seem to be the only source of calcium that doesn't hurt me (my arthritis or lupus). I have been taking magnesium oxide for over a month now (500 mg a day...250mg at breakfast, 250 mg at dinner). I don't understand this (why calcium supplementation hurts).

3. My blood pressure used to be normal BEFORE SLE/RA struck, except on treadmill tests, when immediately as I started walking, it went very high. Since SLE and RA diagnosis, it has been high (I took Methotrexate, generic of Plaquenil, and Prednisone for about 5 or 6 months then quit last Aug/Sept). I feel BETTER since getting off those meds, however, my blood pressure is horrible. After more than two weeks of taking ACV (a little over one week with baking soda), I checked my blood pressure at a local pharmacy. It was 182/102. Should I give the ACV awhile longer? Does anybody have any advice on lowering BP?

4. Does anybody know of a diabetic diet guideline that does NOT have milk? I am lactose intolerant, plus any dairy products seem to cause me pain because of the calcium. Every diabetic diet plan I come across insists on MILK exchanges. I've tried soy, almond, and rice milk. I'm allergic to soy, the almond milk sometimes causes worse pain, and rice milk sends my blood sugar skyrocketing.

Thank you for any help.

The probable cause of your rise in blood pressure could be the amount of baking soda you're taking in proportion to the ACV. You might try balancing part of the Sodium bicarbonate with Potassium Citrate which is a good alkalizer and a good blood pressure reliever. I have tried it and it worked.

Hi Bibi,

Did you ever find relief from the symptoms you were experiencing? Diane

Posted by Loretta (Canada) on 12/21/2007

[YEA]  I wanted to talk a bit about your site. I started researching earthclinic in August of 2007. I was so amazed by what I was reading that I would ignore my msn pals as I would be constantly flipping over to earthclinic. One of the first things that I had already figured out on my own was the BS [Baking Soda], but it was earthclinic that explained the use of BS 'with' ACV, lemon, lime or citric acid. The result for me is that from the day I started using this remedy my urinary PH has been around 7. I was surprised because for over 18 months I had been drinking 3 cups of 'blended' organic greens daily, with fluctuating PH levels. I've since learned the reasons for my 5.5 salvia PH, even though I've been following the Oil Pulling remedy. Over time I've learned I needed to address my dental problems with additional remedies: aspirin dissolved in water, brushing with xylitol, and H202 mouth rinsing. At this point, I'm not sure what steps will be necessary regarding dental work, but for now, I can raise my saliva PH to 7 with this protocol thrice daily.

As a seasoned CFS/pain/insomniac/and anxious person, my symptoms are many, varied, and extreme. I have confused doctors with periods of acute vomiting/diarrhea/prodtruding liver, periods of acute abdominal swelling, and more. I had started going to naturopaths in 1986, and although this kept me going, due to $$ it was never possible to continue. Also too, I have some medical conditions which could never be found. What a vicious cycle it has been due to the extensiveness of my condition. I opted for a medication free, alcohol free, once a week coffee, and whole food diet in 1998.

One of the things I wanted to say is that I cannot imagine anyone not concluding that the information on this site is health promoting and life saving. The remedies are simple. The cost is low. Any thinking individual can research the supplements and suggestions on the internet, and make an informed decision on the safety of their use. For example, the history and safety on products such as H202, borax (20 Mule Team), EDTA are all available for people to research.

The 'communist like control' the pharmaceuticals have over both the doctors and the general public is quite frightening. I can say this with at least some authority, having both extensive personal experience and having worked at a medical clinic. But education from sources such as earthclinic is helping to remove the fear barriers, and people worldwide are starting to exercise their right to use natural remedies, and basic nutrition. We need to become even much more proactive and not let fear stop us from investigating the information coming to us from kind and caring people, who've studied and learned and are willing to share their knowledge about the misinformation, and cover-ups, and the fear the FDA and pharmaceuticals are trying to instil on us. We need to 'pay attention' to the possibility that (from whatever source...) there are Superbugs that are killing people. We need to unite 'earthwide' as equal members of humanity.

One thing I've noticed reading earthclinic is that sometimes people seem hasty in providing feedback. The participation is encouraging, but I know from my 20+ years of my own journey, that the body is so complex, most lay people could not understand, the many complexities in our body systems and how even a seemingly simple remedy like BS and ACV can have on the body as a whole. We have to remember that most people who have had years of the standard - well, I speak for Canada here, American diet and medical treatments/medications, that it takes time and patience to see real improvements. When earthclinic repeats words like conservative, one or more days off per week, start slow, just one or two remedies at a time, it is important to listen. We have to understand that we really are what we eat, and we have to cultivate a desire to feed our bodies and mind with the natural whole foods intended for humans. We need to understand marketing and the push to buy packaged food and eat fast foods, and we know the consequences for consuming such products. We have to become moderate in habits, in a world that has become anything but 'moderate'. We have to slow down, and reflect, and to show appreciation for the kindnesses directed to us, and the help we receive from others.

The more I learn on earthclinic the more I see and realize how powerful vitamins and supplements are. One example I'd like to share is I decided to go to the E.R. after 6 weeks of steady heart and left arm pain that had become more then intolerable. I ingested one Vitamin B Complex and a Natural Vitamin E, while trying to muster up the strength to get dressed and call a taxi. As I sat and waited......low and behold, the pain started lessoning. I kept paying attention to what was going on and feeling relief, I decided a trip to the E.R. was not necessary, and so I learned the powerful effects of simple vitamins. I also believe that it takes time for the body to heal, and that adjustments in a personal Remedy Program are necessary along with moderation in all lifestyle habits. I am noticing slow 'consistent' improvements. Writing things down and referring back over the weeks and months is a great help and an empowering tool. It is really quite amazing how we can suffer for years, and not even notice when symptoms decline. I am becoming more and more active, joining in and participating in school, work, and social activities. Recently, there have been multiple stressful events in my life and I seemed to just 'handle' each situation with calm and clarity of mind. Just before I left to attend my mom's funeral, of course I felt anxiety, and stress, and sadness, I simply took my normal supplements of Vitamin B and Amino Acids. Throughout the day long activities I was calm and present, what a difference between this and the other 5 separate funerals I attended over the years for immediate family members. No need for alcohol, Ativan, or the myriads of anti anxiety products from the health food stores. Will I totally recover? I don't know.....but one thing for sure, I will continue to take responsibility for my body and my health. I will continue to listen to my body, and use the most powerful remedies on the planet.......Ted's Remedies

And the best thing of all is:

1) I am no longer desperate to buy into the vitamin therapies' that are so expensive and unnecessary - I actually had an offer from a local supplement company to use their products for a greatly reduced price. I had used the program when I was at my worst health, and it probably did save my life, but I could not go back to products knowing I would be obligated to promote a company that most people can't afford. And then I found earthclinic.........

2) People are starting to ask me questions about health, because they are noticing how healthy I am looking, and I have the privilege to tell them about earthclinic.

Well Deirdre, that's what has been on my mind, I hope you find something here to encourage you, and I want you to know although I'm not out of the wood's yet with my health, this is the best I've been....and I thank you for the chance to discover some normality to a life that was anything but normal.

You have my permission to use what you like for your earthclinic site.

Thanks, and continued success to you!

In my December '07 email to Earth Clinic I talked about a reduction of heart racing/pain, which was proven by comparing Oct '07 holter tests, with March '08 holter tests, and lot's of tests in between. The specialist at the Arrhythmia Clinic was puzzled with such a drastic improvement in the results, but you see, I had already begun my supplement program from Earth Clinic. For many years, I've been dealing with kidney/liver pain, swelling, increased dizzy/nausea, unable to urinate, yet feel the need, and blood pressure increasing over 45 points. Last September, was my last very serious bout, as I started the PH drink in August, and Ted's remedies in October, which included NO table salt - only grey sea salt. Also, kidney pain is reduced, as shown by the reduction in the use of D-Mannose. The Methylene Blue helps mental and physical energy, reduces dizziness, and even helps sleep! The EDTA helps with moving the lymph's. Also, my iron levels have increased - another first! Let's think about that - less red meat, increased iron....could it be a result of better liver function? After sitting, or getting up in the night I no longer have to use support to walk! Blood sugar is more stable.

I attribute the PH drink to be the most significant remedy, as the process of healing begins with a healthy PH balance.

This Ted who spends so much time helping people - he says, "if you are well, I am happy". He is knowledgeable for sure: I told him my daughter's symptoms, yet she decided to spend $150.00 on a natural path/blood analysis. Guess what? Ted and the naturopath came up with the same health issues, and similar remedies! I know people who quit aspartame, and their acne clears. I have a friend with skin cancer, and decided after getting 2 cut out, that was enough! I referred her to Earth Clinic, and she is healing them with peroxide! Her son (28) had aspartame poisoning as a child, and is using peroxide/baking soda with amazing results. I have friends that (in their 60's) have switched to purer vitamins and Ted's PH drink, and are running even more circles around me. The people that use the remedies on Earth Clinic are feeling better, looking better, and have more pocket money due to the simple, inexpensive remedies, and a reduction in packaged and prepared foods.

But now I have a new issue, that I did not 'fully' realize last year, even though I wrote about it to you! Simultaneously, I have improved health, and knowledge of the North American Union, and Codex Alimentarius, where my research shows that the use of Vitamin and Natural Health Products could be facing severe restrictions! I have friends from Europe who tell me that since the European Union, there are countries that have vitamins available only at the pharmacy, at very low doses, and very very expensive. I've talked to many alternative holistic practitioners locally....most know, some have been involved with lawyers, in an attempt to stop Canada's Bill C51, which is Canada's plan to remove all supplements that do not have a license from the government which is expensive, and almost impossible to get except for single entity vitamins. Some people have even protested outside the local politician offices. Others know, and feel helpless. Can you imagine what my life would be like if I have no supplements? So what about doctors, people might ask? Yes, I have follow-up with my family doctor, genetic's, heart specialist, sleep specialist, and breast specialist. The breast surgeon biopsied, and the diagnosis was uncertain, so I 'wait and see', or have a 'bilateral mastectomy', the sleep specialist confirmed insomnia, but due to what he call's disatrophic effects of pharmaceutical drugs, he offers me more sleep studies, the heart doctor is no longer necessary due to reduction in symptoms (thank you Ted!), the genetics are puzzled, so I have been offered more testing at the National Institute of Health in Maryland, this March of '09 - that's a nail biter.... nervous as to contrast dyes, or any type of injection for the testing.

The reason I have written to Earth Clinic both last year and this year, is to thank you for providing a service where everyone can find simple home remedies to get well, and also to "unite earth-wide as equal members of humanity", attesting to the benefits of natural remedies, and to show unanimous support worldwide, to the necessity of vitamins, and our right to choose for ourselves!

Donations....hmmmm, it has many angles, especially when you compare the different economies. What I decided was what would a local naturopath cost? That's how I make my decision. Personally, I wouldn't like to see a 'site charge', as this is the very thing that distinguishes 'Earth Clinic' from the rest!

So now, I need to thank you - you provide a life saving service, and many are very appreciative. May it be a help to know that Earth Clinic's remedies are far reaching, simple, and effective! I wish you continued success, great health, and many blessings for your labour of love!

Traditional Chinese Medicine   1  0   

Posted by Dhi14 (Memphis, Tn) on 05/01/2012

[YEA]  I began seeing an acupuncturist (traditional chinese medicine doctor) for general fatigue. I was also having hot flashes related to menopause. I have had 2 sessions a week for 2 months, and my energy is significantly improved, and the hot flashes are now completely gone. Part of the program involves drinking a prescribed chinese tea 3 times a day after meals- tastes pretty bad, but I could tolerate it.

Turmeric, Coconut Oil, Oil Pulling   1  0   

Posted by Aus10girl (Cleveland, Oh, United States) on 07/10/2010

[YEA]  My mother passed away from cancer about two months ago. We had been trying various alternative treatments for her (which we didn't start until a little late in the game, I'm sad to report), so when she passed we had a cupboard full of supliments, herbs, teas and oils. I took some of these home, and started doing some research to see how they might be used by someone who did not have cancer. I found this site right away, and was amazed at all of the feedback I was seeing from people. I decided to try them out for myself, and here are the results I've seen so far:

Turmeric Capsules: I have developed some nasty allergy symptoms over the past couple of years, which included intense itching of the eyes, sinus pain, asthma and copious amounts of mucous from the nose. After ONE DAY of taking two capsules in the morning and two at night, my symptoms were eliminated by about 90%. Within three days they were completely clear. I know it was the Turmeric, because I woke up late the past couple of days and forgot to take them, and the symptoms are coming back.

Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) - I started out using it as a moisturizer for my face, but loved the feeling of my skin so much that I started using it all over. Then, after reading all of the amazing claims on this site, I started taking about a table spoon of it in my coffee as well. After about two weeks of doing this, a wart that had been vexing me on the bottom of my foot simply peeled out. No acid, no lazers. . . It just simply came out. This was like magic to me!

Oil Pulling- I started oil pulling two times a day (usually) about three weeks ago with VCO, and just recently switched to Sunflower Oil. I love the way it makes my mouth feel. It did seem to make my teeth whiter right away. The reason I'm so interested in it is because it's supposed to be good for gum disease. I haven't seen any real improvement in my gums yet, but I'm going to stick with it. It also pleases me that I have to blow my nose and cough up phlegm when I'mthrough - even when I have no congestion. It makes me feel like I'm getting rid of the icky stuff! Other Unexpected Benefits - I have noticed several other positive things happening in my body, and since I'm using several foods, I'm not sure which is causing them. - Back and knee pain eliminated. I've always had a bad lower back, and in recent years, the tendons at the front of my knees would get really sore after sitting in one position for a while.

Since I've started taking all of these things, the pain is GONE. - Disappearing Cellulite. I've always had small patches of dimples on my rear. I discovered the other day that the left cheek was about 95% dimple free, and the right cheek was at about 80%! I made my boyfriend double check to make sure it's not all in my head :) it's not! - Noticeable reduction in desire for sweets and junk food. Maybe it's just that I'm consciously taking steps to make myself healthier, but I very rarely want anything that's bad for me. I used to have a tasty(yet very unhealthy) snack of chips or cookies every afternoon at work. Now, I don't even think about it. I am so excited about all of these wonderful benefits from just taking food! It's like real life magic to me! Thank you so much, Earth Clinic, for this wealth of information. I will continue experimenting with the different methods on this page. Thank you! Thank You!

What did you take to reduce the cellulite in your legs and how often? I have the same issue.

Vitamin D   1  0   

Posted by Tiffany (St. Louis, MO) on 01/21/2009

[YEA]  For me, Vitamin D is a MIRACLE. I have been on and off of the 50,000 iu/prescription-only doses and they did NOTHING for me until I stumbled upon an article about how unhealthy the prescription-grade is because it is lab-made and is actually vitamin D2. I did tons of research online and I can say that after ONE day of taking 2000 I.U. of vitamin D3, I felt AMAZING.

I have been telling EVERYONE about it and each person who has started taking it has had significant health changes.

For me...the chronic exhaustion is gone, I feel HAPPY, I feel like I can make it through the day! I wake up feeling renewed and my attitude is 10000% better. My asthma is MUCH better! A friend of mine suffered from chronic migraines all of her life and after two days of taking the D3, she feels amazing! Another friend had muscle spasming issues/constant aching and during the first day, she felt spectacular!

I'm not sure what else it will do for me but my skin is amazingly beautiful and clear! Also, I bent over to pick something up and to my surprise I felt NO pulling in my muscles! I used to be a dancer and was very limber, and this has returned despite the only change being Vitamin D3!!!!!! I could bend down to where my forehead touched my knees and I could touch the floor with my wrists!

I'm SOOOOO VERY BLESSED by stumbling upon the information I discovered and I am sharing it with the world!!!!

Ted posted his statement in 2006 and since then, so much more evidence has been released in great favor of Vitamin D. The TRICK is, stick with D3...NOT with D2!!!! ONLY cholecalciferol, NOTTTT ergocalciferol.

Once I get my next blood tests and determine whether my levels have returned to normal, I will then change my intake from 2000 I.U. of D3 to 1000 I.U. of D3.

I feel the best I've felt in ALL of my life and Vitamin D3 is ABSOLUTELY A HUGE PART OF THIS!

Whole Body Vibration   0  0   

Posted by 2401soule (Hesperia, Ca, Usa) on 02/12/2012

I just started working at a gym, and I sign clients up for 'Whole Body Vibration' treatments. The results I've seen and my clientele testomonials are miraculous. It is a ten minute treatment, you stand on an oscillating machine, at a frequency level between 2 to 25 hertz, the higher the hertz level, the faster the speed. This machine was originally invented for bone density by the Russian Space program, then NASA did more research and discovered, that 3 treatments every week of Whole Body Vibration, for one year, not only stopped bone density loss, but reversed it by 3%. The first 3 days of using this machine, your body naturally detoxes because your lymphatic system is naturally and literally being shaken into the blood stream, so drinking a bottle of water after each treatment is a must.

I think every senior citizen home and rehab center should have this machine. It also helps improve balance because you are forced to balance on the platform because it is like balancing in a canoe in water. I highly recommend this machine as a natural remedy. It will also make you feel stronger and give you more energy. Type II diabetic clients are telling me they are going off of their medication after 2 months of Whole Body Vibration! No joke! I love natural remedies, and hope this advice works for some of you! =)

Interesting.... I always thought that those machines were a rip off and did nothing..... The idea that you vibrate without making any effort and that betters your health is appealing..... I intend to have a gym in our new house and therefore am thinking about what machines to buy but I would still be afraid to be wasting my money. I do have a good trampoline...
