 Re: Turmeric and Cayenne Pepper for Heart Attack Recovery

Using Cayenne in sufficient or tolerable amounts as a spice in food is enough for preventive measure. If one needs therapeutic levels I would recommend using the Cayenne/Ginger caps as these two chi herbs have synergistic action thereby increasing benefits.

 How Much Hydrogen Peroxide in Vaporizer for Whooping Cough?

Thu, 02 Oct 14 03:53:31 +0000

Posted by Mama to Many (Tennessee) on 10/02/2014

Dear Nancy,

I do not know the amount of food grade hydrogen peroxide to put in the vaporizer...sorry, hopefully someone else have that information. I did pour an ounce or so of 3% hydrogen peroxide into about a gallon of water in a vaporizer for my son when he had a respiratory virus recently.

if you have not read about using high doses of vitamin C for whooping cough, here is a long but helpful article on it.

http://www.vaccinationcouncil.org/2012/09/07/vitamin-c-for-whooping-cough-updated-edition-suzanne-humphries-md/

I have a friend whose children had whooping cough a couple of years ago. (They were positively diagnosed.) But they never even whooped and hardly coughed more than with a cold. She was using high doses of vitamin C.

Rachel Weaver, in her book, Be Your Child's Pediatrician, says that she has heard of good success with ground flax seed tea. 1 tablespoon ground flax seed per cup of hot water. An older teen could sip on two cups a day. Apparently after a few days of this there is a big improvement. (1/2 cup for a child, 1/4 cup for a toddler.)

I hope your daughter feels better soon...keep us posted on how things work.

Chanel99 --- My heart goes out to you. I have, thnk od, no direct experience with it yet, but I thought I read on EC that Ted from Bankok on EC mentioned he has a simple cure.

The other incident was it was found one sufferer was swimming in salt water a few times and was free of them.

Please try to find Ted's contributions or ask EC staff about it if you have difficulties.

Love to you and your dear kitty. Om

I have read that article. I think you're right about it being a stone. I'm going to get to work on that. The protocol says to start with apple juice.

Thanks again.

I had a couple small fibers of morgellons and a tingling forehead I brushed off the tingling for many years until some fibers grew so different from yours. No small specks. A parasite nonetheless although I can't prove it.

What I did to get rid of the tingling forehead was wipe slices of lemon on my forehead thru a couple days and the tingling went away in a couple and never came back. It was the citric acid in the lemon that was active ingredient.

I tried that with the couple protruding fibers and had no success. It couldn't penetrate. Instead of the messy lemon, I just went with the active ingredient so bought citric acid powder from drug store and combines some citric acid with water.

I used a combination of DMSO and citric acid for two days and it blew those tough fibers away in short order.

Many people with morgellons have had success with citrus fruit. Parasites don't like it.

Try using that on some of that on your skin to see if that works.

If it does, maybe make a bath with just citric powder only as an experiment.

You may need something internally also but first start with the skin and see what happens.

I don't think it is necessary to kill every single parasite on the body except maybe the most pernicious. In your case, you want to get rid of all black specks and crystals. Maybe wash your bed sheets and any place else they may be also. I'm not sure it is necessary but just covering all bases.

I think it is about bringing the number down. Most people may probably carry around some type of skin parasites. Most of our body is dominated by microbes. Like our gut flora. They coexist with us.

How Much Hydrogen Peroxide in Vaporizer for Whooping Cough?

Thu, 02 Oct 14 00:26:22 +0000

Posted by Nancy (Minnesota, US) on 10/01/2014

My daughter may have whooping cough and she is 15. I plan on putting food grade hydrogen peroxide in a vaporizer. With some reverse osmosis water. I don't know how much to put in, but I did notice that someone put in 32 drops for 1 cup.

So for a gallon it would be how much? 8 x 32 drops? which would be 256 drops?

Wish there was a clear recipe, so I might try just 1/2 cup

 Re: Advice Sought for Obese Cousin

Thu, 02 Oct 14 00:22:34 +0000

Posted by Prioris (Fl, US) on 10/01/2014

Obese people need to diagnose the underlying cause. In my research, most obesity today is tied to the food supply poisons - processed foods.

The US had an obesity rate of 10% in the 60's. Today it is 30%.

WHAT CHANGED? The food and maybe water supply.

Frances obesity rate was 10% in a published 2004 survey.

What separates them from the rest of the world? They had the cleanest food supply in the world at that time.

What should an obese person should do ?

Removing or minimizing processed foods. They need to learn how to cook their own foods from raw ingredients. Also get a good water filter. Sometimes this alone can do wonders.

But those processed foods if eaten over a long enough period of time will likely have damaged their body. It requires detective work to try to correct this and heal. If one is fortunate enough to heal then maybe something good will happen. If underlying medical problem is not addressed, it may be impossible to reverse. No amount of exercise or sunshine will help.

The 10% of the obese will likely have medical problems to begin with that may or may not be able to diagnose. The toxic food supply will just add to their problems.

Sometimes people can nudge their obesity problem by doing a little bit of this and that in their life style.

I think for most, there is a real medical problem.

What compounds this further is the disinformation on losing weight that pervades the media. They focus on calories and exercise. They stay quiet about the toxins in the food supply and underlying medical issues. People imbibe this disinformation. Many of those weight loss companies sell processed foods. Overcoming this is the biggest barrier for people. This is a mind problem.

The other barrier is the danger of the conventional medical system to their health. This is where many go for advice about their health problems. This is another disinformation barrier. This is a mind problem also.

Obesity is not only a body problem but a mind one also. The mind problems are the biggest hurdle even if you had a solution for all the body problems.

Hello again Bonbon,

See my article on Colloidal Silver on EC's Remedies section...two articles and mine is "Colloidal Silver...Miracle Cure or Blue Man"...

And for the likely problem...it's a stone...

Well, I've never had a problem with high doses of lemon juice spread out in a large glass of water ... 12 a day. As I said, I've done it five or six times. Do look at the ailments section of EC...under Ailments...Kidney Stones.

On the amount of how much CS to take; I take two tablespoons three times daily. Concentrations vary according to brand.

Thanks Dave. I kind of think it could be a stone. Maybe even in my bladder. But if it is just inflamation, how is the lemon going to affect it. I'm afraid it may make things worse since things seemed better till I did the acv.

As far as colloidal silver. The directions say 1 teaspoon. Is it safe to take as much as you're describing? Is there a better brand than another? Thanks for your input.

 L-Tryptophan for Insomnia

Wed, 01 Oct 14 20:34:21 +0000

Posted by Helen (Houston, TX, USA) on 10/01/2014

[NAY]  I tried L-Tryptophan several nights, thought one of the other substances was what kept me alert-awake. (I was taking several things at once - B3, herbs, etc, in desperate effort to get some sleep! Bad idea for figuring what is causing a worse problem instead of helping) I was having strange feelings in my chest which I now know to be heart palpitations.

Thinking no sleep meant I wasn't taking enough L-Triptophan (and that one of the other tools was causing the strange chest thumps), I upped from 500 mg to 1000 mg (2 pills) and took only L-Tryptophan (to eliminating, I thought, whatever was causing the chest spasms). But an hour after I got to bed wow was my heartbeat crazy! Like my whole chest was throbbing! Felt like a superslow beat 5 times the usual strength, but wrist pulse revealed a weak pulse beat in between the super big ones, so the rate was normal but the strength unusual. Really scary to have a resting heartbeat that intrudes on your awareness! Got up and searched for the half life - 1-2 hours. That was reassuring. An hour later my heartbeat was still too strong but far less so. (Food based L-Triptophan has a 10-12 hour half life because it's bound to protein; the pure supplement has a short half life.)

BTW, L-Triptophan supplement wearing off fast means it might be good for helping some people get to sleep but not keeping them asleep.

 Re: Advice for Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome

I don't know much about your condition and don't know if it is right for you but I can say this about using DMSO.

There is always that fear of something new. Once you use it a couple times, you will realize it is nothing to get scared of. The longer you use it the more relaxed you become about using it. They say it will absorb everything like microbes into your body. Maybe but probably easier said than done. Microbes are more susceptible to being killed in the presence of DMSO so is a disinfectant.

The only caveats is that 99% strength will burn your skin a little if not diluted with water. Add at least 30% or more water. Experiment. Putting it on skin is no big deal either.

I used it at 99% strength in my mouth and let it sit there. What happened it caused the inside layer of my cheek to peel off a little. Live and learn. On my gums, it was fine.

I've taken it internally a little. It was no big deal. I don't normally use it that way. I would only take it on an empty stomach diluted with water. There is a warm weird feeling to the liquid in the mouth. Even warm when applying to skin.

The negative for MSM is that it causes migraines in some people. If I take too much, that is what will happen to me but many people do fine taking large amounts.

Of course there is the smell to DMSO. It's not a problem for me but it may be for other people. You just have to take the plunge.

 Re: Can Sodium Bicarbonate Help Kidney Failure?

Wed, 01 Oct 14 20:31:42 +0000

Posted by Prioris (Florida, US) on 10/01/2014

I can't answer your direct question.

I don't quite understand the broad spectrum of kidney failure but from my perusal of the subject, medications seem to be the main underlying culprit doing the damage. He may be on many medications.

Natural remedies I think should be able to reverse a lot of the damage but if the thing doing the damage is not stopped or minimized via diet etc then it may be a losing battle.

On the subject of high blood pressure, conventional medicine has connected that with kidney damage. How much that actually has to do with kidney damage is murky to me.

There are natural things that can address high blood pressure. First, do not treat high blood pressure with medications. Treat the underlying cause - ARTERY health. This means removing the plaque and calcification.

Take nattokinase and serrapeptase for plaque.

Take Vitamin K2 MK7, D3, Vitamin A complex for calcification.

The main thing with kidney is removing or minimizing what is doing the damage. Making sure any kidney or bladder infections are halted. There are many natural things out there. Cleansing the entire bladder / liver / kidney system. Water by itself is potent.

This has been asked before. The reason they put that warning on bottles is because they are required by the FDA if they haven't done testing. This warning circumvents that requirement so cheaper for them.

Castor oil on eye is harmless. I have tried it. You just get a greasy eye ball feeling. No stinging or anything. It will be a fun experience. Go for it.
