Should I ingest diatomaceous earth in the morning or after meals? I have been drinking 2 tablespoons of DE in 2 cups of water before going to bed for 8 days, and I have been feeling more anal itching and seeing pinworms all around my buttocks. What is your dosage of DE and at what period of the day do you take it?

Hi, I know this reply is old but I am at my wits end. I have a history of lots of urine infections and for the past few years I have been suffering with this blasted Bartholin cysts on the left side. It usually ruptures by itself and I have instant relief. This time around it ruptured yesterday and I didn't get the Ahhhhhh feeling of relief. Its still quite hard and very very sore. I have resorted to taking the antibiotics the GP gave me but Im feeling meh and wanting to try and fix me. I think I do have inflammation internally and my body must be acidic to keep getting the infection. I do have Apple Cider Vinegar and Honey which I am taking 1 Tablepoon of each at night. How does the Alkaline diet work? I need someone to explain in simple terms. I tend to buy books and still have no clue where to start with thing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am in a relationship with a really lovely guy and this is now affecting my sex life which is making me feel very sad.

I so appreciate your whole story as I have been on a blind quest for almost 5 years of severe bleeding. When it started it was light and intermittent and gradually got worse and I have been living in pure hell. I do a small fibroids in my cervix and the dr I saw is not skilled enough to remove it. I was offered an IUD...un NO!!! She (the dr) told me over 5 years ago "Let's wait and watch" its more like lets wait and watch me die a slow agonizing death of bleeding my life away. I was never given any info about iron, vitamin d...nothing! I was tested several years ago for a vitamin D deficiency and given pharmaceutical Vitamin D for a week no follow up no care about me at all. Thank goodness for the internet I have tried everything with no help from any "western doctor". I am thankful for the info about vitamin d and anything else I have found that helps. Nothing is making me completely better but I know natural alternatives take time and you have to be very consistent. It is horrible how a dr can say wait and I said what...wait and watch me bleed to death?!

Heme iron, and non heme are not the same. Meat is heme, and can eventually result in iron toxicity which is difficult to do. Also certain iron supplements usually chelated, or a heme version can result in the same way. Non heme ( plant sources ) is only used by your body when needed. Your body reduces it, and absorbs what is needed. Just like ALA is converted only when you need it. The body can regulated non heme. Lastly, the main reason not to worry is the body is only capable of absorbing 4 mg per day of iron as stated by the red cross. " iron toxicity " is usually inflammation somewhere in the body falsey raising ferritin. This will show up on a blood test as iron toxicity when it is not. True iron toxicity is very rare. It's usually just inflammation.

Alum Cures Canker Sores Overnight!

Canker sores on the inside of your cheek, gum or tongue can be very painful. I have found a foolproof method to get rid of them overnight. Just get a jar of Alum, available in the Spice section of your supermarket, dampen your finger and place a good amount of the alum directly on the sore. Keep it there more than a minute. Then rinse your mouth several times with clear water. In the morning, the canker sore will be gone. I have also used this remedy for sores beginning on my lip. It has worked every time.

Distilled Vinegar for Salivary Duct Stone

Here is my experience with the Salivary stones, hope it would help others.

Back in March (2016) I started noticing inflammation under my tongue particularly after the meals. After a few more weeks a started noticing a white pointy thing under my tongue on the right side. I went to see my GP(local doctor) who prescribed me an antibiotic course, which I completed but of no use. I went back in again to see my GP and he referred me to an ENT specialist.

The ENT specialist inspected me in the beginning of May and as the stone has come all the way up and wasn't coming out, he suggested a surgery (rather a minor procdure) to pluck out the stone. He did mention he might have to make a small cut to the duct to take it out but he wouldn't prefer it, rather as a last resort.

I didn't hear anything back from him for good 5-6 weeks. And then I got a letter from hospital saying they would like me to come in on 28th of July for the surgery. It was around 2nd week of July that my stone started causing me severe pain upon eating food. Usually my breakfasts were worse, lunch and dinners weren't too bad. I think some foods triggered more pain than others, it was a horrible feeling not being able to enjoy food. About a week ago from today when I was all set for the surgery I read up on internet where different people had suggested different things they have tried for their pain relief. So I decided to give one of them a go.

At Lunch time I was eating noodles and when the duct had swollen up I applied Distilled Vinegar through a cotton bud on my swollen duct. Luckily I am one of those who like vinegar. After few more sips of my noodles I applied the vinegar again and the magic happened. The stone just came out, I had tears in my eyes as I had suffered from such long time and yet the remedy was so simple.

Now I have cancelled my surgery and I can eat pain free now. I did have another small stone that came out itself after couple more days. My salivary gland still swells up little bit when I eat but there is no pain.

I hope this helps you and thanks for reading. All the best to everyone.


Held Needed for Rash of Unknown Cause

I need help for a rash. I thought is was poison ivy because it was itchy, then I thought it might be shingles (I had been around a friend who had active shingles). Dr said no to both and gave me a hydrocortisone ointment. I have a spot on the top of one foot that started out looking blistery, so I soaked it in epsom salts. It then got drier, but seems to have red spots like blood and looks like a very red bruise. I also have several spots on the bottom of my foot that look blistery/pussy and, after soaking, the blistery spot gets a brown look to it. It looks like something different than the rash on the top of my foot. Now, I have started getting a rash behind my knee that acts the same as the one on the top of my foot. I haven't soaked it, but started putting oreganol on all the spots. This may have been too harsh. Last night, after my shower, I sprayed colloidal silver on all the spots and let it dry. This morning, I have put vit e oil on all the spots. I have to wear socks and shoes all day, so I can't leave it exposed to the air. Seems like a read about a healing balm that was excellent on skin issues and I'd like to try that, but I'm willing to do anything at this point. It seems to be getting worse, not better. Thanks.

Sookiec, BSM won't hurt so you can probably do a Tablespoon a day safely.

You can also read up on cayenne and on sage tea for slowing/stopping the flow.

Frankincense Oil Relieves Pain of Ganglion Cyst

I started using Frankincense on a ganglion cyst on the back of my wrist that was painful 24/7 and had been for months, I was really surprised that it stopped aching immediately! Coincidence? I don't know. I also think that the cyst is shrinking but I am not sure. I am applying a little Frankincense oil three times a day - it soaks in within a few seconds.

You can put DE in your Shampoo and hand soap. And, say good bye to lice and so much more. Works like a charm.

Consume the DE with lots a liquid. The best thing for Toe fungus is Collidail Silver. Put it directly on the fungus within in a week it will be gone...

I use DE for my family and pets. By the way, DE removes Floride and many of the other toxins in our tap water. Note my favorite vitamin supplement is Morringa Olifera leaves, Now I am growing it too. Plus, I also make it into a tea and add it to the regular tea. Morringa put all health products to shame, it is higher in vitamins, cholorphyll. I take two capsules a day. It is also a great detoxifier as well. Research it, it will blow you away. Oh, yea, Morringa Olifera seeds removes water born toxins and bacteria from all kinds of water. You will find tons of info on youtube on both DE and Morringa Olifera tree. We also take Reishi mushroom capsules. Note: DE and Collidal Silver was approve for Eboli but when these people came with the cure, they were refused for use. Take care of your health, preventive maintenance is the best cure.

See an allergist that does the same testing and they can customize immune building treatment with skinny needle shots. I will pray for all of us that suffer from mold. I will try coconut oil and ammonia to clean. After hurricane Ike, began to have headaches and now have sinus problems and swallowing problem. God bless all.

The problem with silver retailers is that you don't know what is in their products and the only thing you have to go on is what they tell you it is and there is no practical way to know if what they are saying is correct or not. Consequently, like many others I make my own with a high quality generator so I know exactly what went in it and what the finished product is.

The second issue is that most available already made products are so expensive that it almost forces you to make it yourself if you plan to use it at effective doses or for more than one person. If it is for a family then a generator is definitely more practical.

Many manufacturers make a big issue out of the fact that they sell their products in amber or blue bottles or in glass bottles, but the fact is that if the product really is "colloidal silver", then there is no need for that. Colloidal silver that is properly made does not change or degrade by ultra- violet light exposure or exposure to proper type plastic bottles. Often times these products are ionic silver and ionic silver can change when exposed to uv light. Most silver studies are done using colloidal silver and occassionally they will include ionic silver as part of the testing process, but the majority of publicly available studies use CS. Both forms have beneficial health effects, but in the majority of studies the ionic form seems to be more toxic to normal human cells. My preference would be to use nano colloidal silver and that is what I make at a moderately high ppm for the sake of convenience.

Another consideration is parts per million. Some manufacturers make a point of making 10 ppm as opposed to the more commonly available 20ppm, but they charge about the same price as their 20 ppm counterparts. If you want 10 ppm it will probably be more cost effective to buy a 20 ppm product and then add an equal amount of distilled water to it to make 10 ppm. If it is true cs, it will still be true cs once the distilled water is added.

Most products that look like clear water are likely to be ionic, but cs that is of very small particle size less than 5nm can also look clear, but I doubt that there are many manufacturers producing that size cs because that would raise production costs considerably. In many studies, cs in the 10 to 25nm particle size is generally a good effective size range. Going much smaller can have adverse effects on human cells and going much larger can be less effective. Most products are actually in a particle size range and are not all the same size. A well made product might be in the 10 to 20nm range where many studies show good effect. When a manufacturer states a specific particle size, I would assume that it is an average or a mean. To get just one specific size particle would be difficult and would probably require filtering that would add considerably to production cost. Some labs will sell such a product, but it is very expensive.

I use a relatively expensive generator setup, but it has features that I wanted and so I was willing to pay up for those features and convenience because I make a significant amount of cs, but there are reasonably priced generators out there for less. One feature that I would consider a must for any generator is "constant current" because this will allow you to fairly accurately determine the parts per million of every batch you make and should help you to make uniform batches with repeatable results each and everytime.

Once you start making it on your own it is easy and your generator should pay for itself fairly quickly.
