B: This would certainly be an infection of fungal or bacterial type. To remedy, purchase one or any number of these herbs ---Garlic, Oregano, Olive Leaf, Neem, Grapefruitseed in liquid form from health-food store and add to food or drink for your child. Amounts used are labeled on the container so start w/ the minimum and slowly increase until the issue is resolved.

St: Nice to hear your success! If I may suggest some additions.

First, as for the fiber; it would surely be an improvement expanding your fiber to more types as psyllium is good yet restricted in results. I mix a combination of Psylium-Pectin-Wheat or Oat fiber for full spectrum effect. The pectin will remove any possible radioactive isotopes which can reek major havoc in even very small amounts from sources like dairy foods, iodine deficiency, and radon found in homes particularly basements and cellars. Wheat & Oak fiber have the remarkable ability to manufacture Butyric Acid which is a major fuel source for the cells of the colon.

Second, as for the inflammation, many folks have reported good results for UC by taking Turmeric. Turmeric is particularly powerful anti-inflammatory but also is one of the most broad-spectrum beneficial herbs on the planet.

Third, to increase the efficiency of probiotics, it is advised to predose w/ antibiotics herbs like Garlic, Oregano, Olive Leaf, Neem, Grapeseed. After killing gut pathogens w/ these herbs, this frees up the probiotics to "populate" the gut.

Speaking of gut flora, do be sure to get enough Vit-K rich foods like green foods like Spirullina, Chlorella, Wheat & Barely Grass. Many people are starting their day w/ "green smoothies". These vitamin K rich foods help the body manufacture probiotics naturally. FOS is also used as a pre-probiotic w/ good results.

Bill: Unfortunately I don't know my homocysteine or glutathione levels as I have no medical support in my area. Maybe I can have a long-distance Dr (online) order an "Elisa" test at local lab?? Any suggestions? I think I can purchase these test alone, if I can muster enough $.

Anyway, in response to your heads-up on homocysteine, I have B-6 & P5P in the mail as my heart & cardio system have been thru hell in the last 4 yrs; fortunately I have avoided catastrophic event. I do take 500mg Methionine daily for fatty liver w/ 1000 mcg B-12/500mcg Folic Acid, and 125mg DMG.

I may need to reiterate the major problem of pulmonary fibrosis (in comparison to your gene theory), which is known to cause Glutathione deficiency and autoimmunity. Recent LDN is proof of correcting, in part, this immune dysfunction. I have no problems of insufficient volume or shortness of breath, but do have problems w/ gaseous exchange, detox, and acidosis. Dr. Shallenberger measures lung function to access energy production in the body. I am currently getting good results (much better now since taking LDN) in energy production by taking Raw Lung Glandular in conjunction w/ Chinese herbal combination for lung health. So it seems an immune-detox-energy crisis which I suffer, but w/ major treatment intervention am still here to talk about it.

About 1 yr ago I nebulized some Reduced Glutathione, along w/ other nutrients for lungs, and for a brief few hrs experienced a remarkable relief of bad symptoms and felt like my old self again prior to my injuries. Am looking forward to trying this remedy again and isolating exactly any specific or combination nutrients. Also, I have sufficient circumstantial evidence of mycoplasma pneumonia, so this infection must be playing a major role in preventing any healing in the lungs and further agonizes the fibrosis instead. Despite recent immune improvements w/ LDN the mycoplasma and bone/joint infection continues although not as severe; but am now resolved to take at least one 6 drop dose MMS daily so as to get an upper hand and eventually (w/ the help of Ozonated Colloidal Silver) totally kill these pathogens.

The heavy metal elimination seems to be going well as the severity is slowly reduced. Hopefully in a few months I will have made substantial progress in this area.

I have tried everything, too. What is working lately is 1000mg glycine + 1500mg L-Tryptophan before bed. Much improvement. Ted says to do 1/2 teaspoon baking soda in water 3 times/day--says most insomniacs are too acid. I started to take baking soda like this at the same time I started the glycine and tryptophan. Don't get discouraged--you have to try until you find something that works. Read all Ted's posts, you will find an answer.

Can Oil Pulling Raise Cholesterol?

Mon, 26 Jan 15 13:20:57 -0500
Posted by Gayle (York, Pa) on 01/26/2015

I've been oil pulling for about 6 months now, and during my last bi-annual doctor's visit, I was told that according to my lab work, my cholesterol was higher than usual. I really believe in this oil pulling, but I'm now wondering if it's raising my cholesterol. I've been using the extra virgin olive oil lately, but sometimes switch to sweet almond and 2 or 3 others. Does anyone know if cholesterol is negatively affected?

 Re: Trying Castor Oil For Pterygium

Posted by Ms.v (Virginia, US) on 01/26/2015

I was diagnosed having Pterygium in both eyes in 1997, after prior years, eye specialists finally detected the condition. Surgery on my left eye failed, leaving the eye butchered and they say the eye (L) is, "Gone! " Pterygium is not my friend and I will never trust another surgeon to remove the blobs, because it only reoccurs! I will try the vinegar/H2O, but I trust only God to remove the blobs out of my eyes.

I pray all the best for complete healing.

Diagnosed With Blood Clots in Both Lungs

Mon, 26 Jan 15 10:57:55 -0500
Posted by Toni (Australia) on 01/26/2015

Hello Ted

I was diagnosed with multiple blood clots on both lungs...they have put me on xalerato blood thinners, that was in 5 December 2014. I am still experiencing shortness of breath and chest pains. They think it might be contributed to from my Lupus since I had it from 1994. All was okay, but I have experienced since 2011 extreme stress, more so than necessary...I did lose my husband in 2000 but everything has been okay, so I don't know why, if its due to stress or something else. I want to feel pain free again.....

Thank you Toni from Oz

Oil Pulling With Coconut Oil Feedback

Mon, 26 Jan 15 10:12:52 -0500
Posted by Amy J (Oregon, US) on 01/26/2015

[YEA]  I have no negatives when it comes to oil pulling.

I have been doing it with coconut oil for nearly one month, and while I do not have any miraculous things going on, there are a few major differences I noticed after a couple weeks of doing it, and if I miss a day, I notice things start to regress in some areas.

Being that I am a singer, the biggest change I have noticed, though I didn't realise until a few days ago it was related, was the regaining the lowest parts of my low register. I lost it some time ago due to allergies, occasionally I'd get glimpses of it, but it never quite came back for good.

Over the last few weeks, I noticed my voice deepening a lot. Now, I have a huge vocal range spanning close to 4 octaves, but I lost a good octave due to the allergies, maybe more than that. I still haven't regained the highest parts of my upper register, but we'll see if over time, oil pulling helps that as well.

It has certainly helped with gum inflammation, I had some inflamed areas, and they are now normal and my gums don't look red anymore either, but healthy and pink. :)

I got frequent sinus infections, and while I may get some sinus pressure every now and then, for the most part, my sinuses are pretty cleared up and I don't get massive sinus headaches anymore.

For me, those 3 things are enough to keep oil pulling, even if I never see any new benefits down the road.

God Bless ~Amy

It's not just in the gut and it's not just clay or dirt that can cure this. It may have worked for you, but I'm sure you did a few other things along with the dirt.

 Re: Tapping for Swollen Lymph Nodes

Posted by Nicole (Neptune Beach) on 01/26/2015

[YEA]  GtCharlie - THANK YOU!! Since I have been rubbing and poking at the painful areas on my upper right & left jaw and behind my ears and down my neck for weeks, I really didn't think the semi circle tapping would do anything different. AAAAHHH! Relief! I've just been doing it for the last 20 minutes (intermittently) and my jaw pain is pretty much gone. My neck feels so much better and behind my ears are already less tender. I thought my upper traps hurt from stress/sitting at the computer, but the tapping relieved the tension their too - so I'm thinking maybe that was the lymph just sitting there not draining. Thank you for sharing. <3
