You can also use apple cider vinegar on your hair too. I use it and let it sit for bout 5 mins prior to shampooing my hair. You can add some after conditioning. Leave it in your hair and either put leave I'm conditioner or put oil ( I recommend mixing tea tree oil and lavender oil which helps regrow hair.

  Re: Castor Oil Pack for Torticollis

Where do buy the Castor oil packs? I had spasmodic tortiscolis back in 1985 & it was so bad that I had surgery. I have no problem with it for 30yrs and it has come back on me. I have taken my first Botox injections which have helped but don't like the way it makes me feel. I would like to try this castor oil to see if it helps. I'm always searching for any treatments that would really work.

EC: Hi Brenda,

You can buy castor oil at your local health food store. Some health food stores carry castor oil wool flannel packs too. You can find both items on, as well as many other online sites.

  Re: BHT for HPV - Seeking Help From Oscar

E: Unfortunately Oscar is currently unable to participate here on E.C. Do read his past post on BHT for further info. Also, read E.C. pages for your condition at the top of web page under section "Ailments".

Old school naturalpaths have long recommended Povidone Iodine administered as an enema, douche, or wash for topical treatment of pathogens. Colloidal Silver could be used this way in place of, or rotated with Iodine.

Also, chronic infections are a sign of immune suppression, which is a result of internal or external stressors or aging in general. Parasite infestation is a common internal stressor responsible for chronic infections. Zinc & Vit-A&D deficiency is also a common cause of immune dysfunction. Other nutrients specific for defeating viral infections include Lysine, Echinacea, St John'sWort. Iodine deficiency is also a leading cause of immune suppression.

Hope this helps reduce your fears by way of increasing knowledge.

Dear Elle from Chicago, I am not sure what to tell you. The BHT did work very well for some people for HPV caused warts as discussed here in this forum back in 2012:

Please scroll through the above link to read what Fatchabrute, Larry, and Teru from Paris have to say about the use of BHT to treat genital warts.

I wish to conclude this posting by thanking the many people who have expressed their concern for me. I am living in a motel at this time and hoping for some help from the VA in getting some metal sutures removed that are causing me pain.

My very best to the many wonderful people here at The Earth Clinic.

I am sorry that I am no longer able to respond very much at this time....Oscar

I had a terrible bout of c. diff over ten years ago and was hospitalized for over 2 weeks. I had one serious relapse since, a few weeks later (this one didn't land me back in the hospital). After that I determined that I would not be sick again. At the time, there wasn't a lot of information about dietary changes, but there was some info about probiotics. I took culturelle and s. boulardii and another probiotic on an empty stomach (morning and night). Since then, I have learnt a lot about diet and the body's ability to heal itself. I avoid gluten entirely. I have learnt that it is also advisable to avoid dairy and alcohol and consume very little sugar. It may sound extreme but I have found a low sugar paleo diet to be very beneficial, with some leeway once you have "detoxed" for a while. I also avoid antibiotics at all costs, as you can imagine, although I believe I have had to take antibiotics a couple of times since and did not suffer a reoccurrence. Oh- if I ever feel something coming on I don't eat until I feel well again, but that hasn't really happened since I changed my diet (knock on wood! ). Apparently your body has an opportunity to detoxify when it is not busy digesting food. I still take probiotics - the s. boulardii, culturelle, and ultimate flora critical care, all on an empty stomach.

I encourage you to do your own search for information about healing c.diff or healing your gut and nutrition. I know that individuals with other intestinal problems try the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD), which I don't know too much about.

I hope this information is helpful and hope that you all find/regain good health!

  Re: Vitamin C Cure H. Pylori Ulcer

Posted by Ellie (Boston) on 08/31/2015

There isn't anything exists that kills h.pylori. It can be made dormant, inactive, under control by various remedies but not killed. And the role of this bacteria in human bodies is unknown since pretty much 50% of population has it. So focus on it with that in mind. Essential oils is another good remedy. I had vitamin C via IV daily for two weeks along with other herbal treatments, such as goldenseal tincture plus much more. The symptoms were gone, I felt great, my stomach had healed, but the bacteria is still there. I do maintenance courses twice a year with various supplements to keep it under control. And of course diet. 100% sugar free diet is not possible since fruits contain sugar.but had to eliminate grapes and honeydew they always start the trouble. And sweet white wine which I love.

What Can Help Eliminate Excess Calcium From Hyperparathyroidism?

Mon, 31 Aug 15 18:08:54 -0500
Posted by Anette (Dorset, Great Britain ) on 08/31/2015

I am a 57 year old woman living in UK and I was diagnosed with Hyperparathyroidism 13 years ago. Well not really diagnosed, just told that I most likely have a benign tumor in one of the parathyroid. I have never been investigated. I Declined surgery preferring to go the alternative way but so far I have been unsuccessful in finding the solution. I am grateful for the journey it has taken me in but after a very stressful year with a lot of loss and grief my health has worsened and I worry that I have too much calcium in my body. My body seems to be getting stiffer and stiffer and I move less and less because it is tiring and painful. I am a vegan and have lost weight due to loss of muscle mass and don't seem yo be ablest to put weight on. I manage my symptoms with magnesium, iodine, and comfrey tea and will now start using ACV and chanca piedra. But I need to find a cure as this must be stressing my body to much. Can you please comment with what I should do further? Thank you Anette

 Re: Can MMS Help Protect New Kidney?

K: MMS is a powerful reducing agent that not only neutralizes pathogens but also heavy metals, xenobiotics or medications. Go to the Genesis 2 Church of Health & Healing website for further info on using MMS and pharm medication (assuming the patient is taking meds to thwart immune reaction to transplant).

Otherwise, to keep the kidneys healthy one must first maintain a proper alkaline/acid balance (which is often compromised in kidney disorders), and also use Crannbery Softgels regularly to prevent pathogen buildup in the K & UTI, and also during any crisis or severe stage take the herbal complex of Dr Christopher's "Kidney/Bladder" sold at many health food stores.

Well, we had another collapsed lung. He's had 2 rounds of pleurodesis, once with doxicycline and again with talc. My issue today is his phosphate level. They say it's low and put in an iv to get more. What can I do to raise his blood level? from what I read, low levels are due to malnutrition/starvation. Yep. But what can I do? Also, as for protein powder, does anyone know of a brand that actually mixes well? Thanks.

  Re: Apple Cider Vinegar for Bladder Infection

[YEA]  Poppy,

While I am a pro-advocate of ACV, it was not a protocol that worked for me for UTIs or bladder infections.

Having had too many UTIs to even count in the last 40 years, I researched long and hard to find something to prevent them rather than just treating them. Knowing that use of antibiotics caused me to have chronic candida issues, several years ago I began using Ted's borax protocol to eradicate the candida. The positive side effect that I have had is I have not had a UTI in 6 years. I have not had a recurrence of the kidney stone issue that I once had. (Once was more than enough).

I used the woman's dosage of 1/8 teaspoon in a liter (quart) of water, sipped throughout the day. I did 4 days on, 3 days off. I did this for several months. Then reduced it to every other month for several months. I now use the protocol several times a year, for a week or so, particularly before during and and after traveling as I tend to have issues with water in other parts of the country and the world. I take a small container of borax with me while traveling and just add a small pinch to water that I drink.

If I get even a small inkling that a UTI may be starting, I start drinking borax water, right away. And within the hour it disappears. In such cases I usually add a pinch to every glass of water throughout that day. It has always taken care of it.

No UTIs in 6 years, no antibiotics in 6 years. No craving sugar or starches either.

Hope this may,

  Candida Diet Protocol - Nystatin Questions for Bill

Mon, 31 Aug 15 10:08:53 -0500
Posted by Sue (Boulder, Colorado) on 08/31/2015

Hello Bill,

I'm in a real pickle with the "fungus amongus". Can you kindly advise me? I've just been through the wringer with a cascade of serious health conditions from chronic candida, leaky gut/dysbiosis and am looking for a way to heal/do the program but don't tolerate the baking soda protocol.

I also have allergies, asthma, bilateral chronic wrist tendonitis, right gluteus medius and minimus tendonitis, fatigue, acne, brainfog, fatigue, visual migraines, irritability, anxiety, etc. I have done a number of candida protocols over the years, getting better and losing weigh to a point and then having it rellapse. 2-3 years ago I tried doing Ted's alkalizing formulas 3 separate times. And each time I had to stop after a day or three because my gut "went out" - started gurgling and felt really off, my digestion became weird and gassy. I took HCI with and between meals and stopped the baking soda protocol and immediately felt better. Are my baking soda gut reactions indicative of a liver or kidney issue?

Right now I'm finishing my second month of Nystatin and a no sugar, low complex carb candida diet, because I just decided to try, try again to heal my leaky gut and get any coinfections resolved because I think it's causing my body to not be able to repair my collagen/heal my tendons because my small intestines aren't able to absorb the nutrients I need to heal.

I figure that I must have other critters. I did a round of Riflaxamin last year and it helped my gut. In a separate incident from the alkaliniizing. I figured I had SIBO because I was getting gassy when I ate and it was made worse by high dose probiotics. It went away with the Riflaxamin. However, I noticed when I tried to take a high dose probiotic last year that it seemed to come back.

Do you recommend a probiotic while doing the program? Is ACV ok to eat on salads etc? Am I allowed to eat any fermented foods like coconut aminos? or Tempe? What about saurkraut and kimchee?

I think what put me over the tipping point was being on over 30 antibiotics from 04-2010 for chronic sinus and finally a nasty upper respiratory bronchitis? thing that wouldn't quit. Unfortunately I got floxed many, many times. It left me badly depleted, allergic, fatigued and with myalgias. And I notice that I have bone rending charlie horses if I don't keep my magnesium levels up. However, I read something you wrote about a mineral supplement and I might try that. As I have limited means I appreciate any assistance in prioritizing supplements by necessity.

Moving forward what would be beneficial? I'm wondering if it is possible for me to do the Nystatin and use the Turpentine protocol and Iodine and Borax? I think the Nystatin is only going to hit my intestine and I don't think it's comprehensive enough. I do feel clearer on the nystatin but nauseous each time I dose. I have Turpentine, Methylene Blue, Thiosulfate, and Borax all on hand. I just need to order the Luggols iodine.

I re-read the diet and it says to minimize complex carbs or get rid of them. I am doing a cup to a cup and a half of a complex carb a day.

I also take MSM 1-2 tsp day, Silymarin/Milk Thistle, Selenium 200 mcg, Magnesium Glycinate 400mgs, Mag Chloride spray 70%, Zinc, Vitamin C, NAC 1200mgs, L-Glutamine, Chromium 4-600,5-Htp and GABA for stress. I also take IOSOL iodine since I have it and it makes me feel "brighter" but I am going to switch to Luggols. I have wondered if I have a methylation issue or pyrroluria. I feel better with B6/B5, Zinc, L-Tyrosine and Iodine. And a good B multi helps too. I have been trying your suggestion the last 2 days of 500 mgs of niacin for my attention and low mood and it think it helps. I also take 10,000 mgs Biotin. I heard it keeps the candida in it's less aggressive form?

Thank you for reading. I welcome any suggestions.

To health!
