 Re: Apple Cider Vinegar for Insomnia

I made a cup of just plain old apple cider with a kcup maker and it cut my wind down time by a half an hour. Now I use it every night and I am thinking since everyone says apple cider vinegar works, maybe it's apples in general.

Nose Bleeds: My friend who is male and 63 years old keeps getting nose bleeds. He has been getting them for months now.. He gets it packed and cauterized by the doctor but nothing helps. He has stopped his vit. E and CoQ10 .. He eats a very healthy diet and has no health issues.. Doctors say he should get some sort of operation in which he doesn't want.. I have looked up natural cures or what causes nose bleeds and there is nothing to be found.. PS . they checked his vitals and bp and blood work all comes back normal... Any Ideas?? thank You

 Re: Sores Inside Nose that Won't Heal

I have something in both of my nostrils. A little bump in each one and they've been there for a very long time. I have allergies and blow my nose a lot so I never thought much about them until I realized that they were actual growths. I put 90% tea tree oil and 10% DMSO in a little bottle with a dropper and saturated a q-tip with this solution. I rubbed the solution inside my nostrils, only over the lumps, and continued doing this for about one hour, or until there was no more solution on the q-tip. Have a lot of tissue on hand because you will probably sneeze a lot. I noticed that the bumps stopped going down in size after about 2 weeks. I reduced my procedure to about 1-2 times a week and the bumps started reducing again and they are almost all gone.

New to this group - diagnosed 4 yrs. ago with benign meningioma. Started at 2 mm and is grown to 6mm. Haven't been to Neurologist as I was told it was common in women over 50. Reality is life and death of family members and care giving have been priorities in last 4 yrs. Now it's time for me... Recent MRI'S shows 6mm from 6 months ago and few weeks ago. Am working on dietary changes and blood sugar levels, pH levels with lemon water and BLACK CUMIN SEED OIL. Interested to know if others have tried this and had any results.

Taking Aloe for Hemorrhoid Relief

Wed, 04 Mar 15 20:43:03 -0500
Posted by Steph (Denver, Colorado) on 03/04/2015

[YEA]  Wow, I now understand the term "pain in the rear"! I had developed a severe thrombosed hemorrhoid 2 years ago. I did pop after awhile and then the year of oozing happened and pain and swelling went down (I would say down 70% on both aspects). Now on year 2 and the fill up of the hemorrhoid happened again. The pain came back, twice as bad. I started buying everything hemorrhoid related again, that I didn't try the 1st time. After a month of irritation and nothing to seem to work on them, I decided to try ACV. At 1st I felt it worked, with just a few moments of sting and then gone. After 3-4 days of this, the stinging started when I applied it and then got worse, so I stopped after a week of pain. I then tried hemorrhoid ointments again. Wow, the pain they brought on was too unbearable. Surgery is not an option, as I know 2 people who had multiple surgery for the same thing and both cases, came back again, so both people told me not to do it, unless you literally can not walk or sit (at all). I do take Rutin (2weeks now, but no help). Yesterday I read about aloe and thought, right, just like everything else, its a gimmick. I felt, why not try, what can it hurt (lol - after irritating it with everything else, specially prep-h), so I went to healthfood store and bought 99%pure aloe gel and 100% safe drinking aloe. I got home and rubbed the gel on the hemorrhoid for the 1st time. I filled the bathtub up, just in case I need a quick rinse to get it off. As I sat and wait for the burn of the century, I wait and wait and wait. Still no burn, actually some relief. I was sitting with amazement. I am now on day two. The pain is 80% gone when I apply. I am waiting to see if aloe helps shrink it. I rub aloe all over the area daily and drink 2 oz of the drink twice a day. If it goes down or improves greatly, I will be amazed. I live in Co and wondered if the cold winter didn't help and made it flare up again. So far I am amazed with what aloe has done. Anything on the market that says hemrroid relief, is a gimmick. Only Witch Hazel and sitz bath, give temp. relief. I do not want temp. relief, I want pure relief. If surgery would work, with no recurrence, then I would take the painful recovery and do it, but that is not the case of most who get it done.

 Dr. Shallenberger's Breakout Video

HI U GOD FEARING FOLKS DOIN, , , , , , , , , , ,

Flubbed up as usual in my reference to Dr Shallenberger's video . My past post just got you to his website and you had numerous video's to choose from. I will put up the URL again and you look for the "Break out" video. In it he tells you how to get oxygen into your cells. All these years I thought I was in high cotton if I had high oxygen in my blood. He says otherwise, but tells you how to get it into your cells.

There are two alternative doctors you should follow if you smart. That is Dr Shallenberger and Dr Robert Rowen. You follow this guys and you will start saying nice things about me.

 Re: Could I Have Overdosed on Borax?

Dear Pinch, I am sorry you are in such pain and I have not used Borax. We share a background in hard horticultural work, however, and I am going to throw out a few things that have stopped the pain that used to wake me up in the night. My pain was in my hands, neck, and ankles and, after doing a lot of reading, I found help through simple changes. I did drink a tea made from vinegar for a while, but later amended my diet to keep my body alkalized. I started drinking a lot more unflouridated water and stopped most alcohol, all flour, sweets, and dairy. These last 4 are common sources of inflamation. I don't know about you, but some of the joints that were painful actually looked reddish each morning. Now my joints are the same color as the skin around them and I rarely feel morning stiffness. In fact, your letter reminded me that I hadn't given stiffness a thought in many months. The thing about this site is that one never knows what things have already been tried, but perhaps you may find something useful here. Good luck to you.

Pinch, If I may add another comment, I just remembered another change I made that helped joint pain and stiffness. It was just the simple taking of a couple of calcium capsules per day. Now I have switched to drinking homemade bone broth instead. My feeling is that you had damaged joints and now have fibromyalgia as well.

Hi Timh,

I read your post on the niacin. Thanks, as always! Does taking a low dose several times a day help with your sleep without making you too tired during the day? I'm not too fond of the flush and this sounds like a good option. Good for the heart, too. I didn't realize it came in 25-50mg until you mentioned it. Thanks!

 Re: Neuropathy Remedy Update

Wed, 04 Mar 15 20:12:31 -0500
Posted by Al (Alvena, Saskatchewan, Canada) on 03/04/2015

[WARNING!]  Another update. I recently had surgery to remove the right lobe of my liver. This was due to matastatic colon cancer and as a result my blood pressure has gone up resulting in other problems including reduced energy and increased neuropathic pain. I noticed that when I had something sweet to eat like jam, cake, candy, etcetera that the neuropathic pain was reduced substantially so I started experimenting. When doing anything slightly strenuous my blood pressure and sugar would drop and my pulse would go way up so the first thing I tried was leaving out the diamacron and metformin. This allowed the sugar to increase and gave me back my energy without my blood pressure and pulse being significantly affected, but the sugar went too high so I added the metformin back in.

Big surprise!!!! The neuropathic pain went way down, more than eating something sweet made it go down. As a result I typed "diamacron" into google and clicked on "diamacron side effects" and found out that it causes neuropathic pain, conflicts with metformin, is not supposed to be used if you have liver problems, are having or recently had surgery. None of this was covered in the pharmacy information sheet I was provided. The warning is not about alpha lipoic acid, but rather it is about the diamacron prescription medication and what it does. Eliminating it has made a huge difference. I have not as yet tried the nicotine but will be soon. Al

Julian, I suspect that when we are generally low in vitamins and minerals, it is possible that supplementation can exacerbate other deficiencies.

Going on this premise, you might want to look into the vitamins that tend to be depleted by boron--possibly vit d, calcium and especially magnesium. High vitamin A may help with the lung infection issue.
