ACV and Baking Soda for Fibroid and Weight Loss

Sat, 22 Nov 14 21:55:19 -0500

Posted by Jane (Saint Lucia) on 11/22/2014

[YEA]  I came across Apple Cider Vinegar baking sida for fibroids on this site. I decided to try it after the molasses seemed to be ineffective. My lower abdomen was growing like a pregnant belly. I couldn't sleep on my belly, there was a hard lump on the right side where my three small fibroids are. Within a month of taking it 2 tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar and 2.5 ml aluminum-free baking soda with a cup of water first thing in the morning and last thing at night, that lump was gone and I realized some weight loss. I haven't gone to do the ultra sound to see the size of the fibroids but my belly looks flatter, I've lost some good weight, my clothes fit better, and I have more energy. I cut out gluten, and animal products from my diet about one year now and there had been no weight loss, but the acv/bs has shrunk me, lol. I was about 160 pounds before starting d regime and had to be getting new clothes for work but in this my second month I can fit into clothes that I couldn't even get on me 2 months ago.

Different things work for different folk but this one surely works for me. I've had some very wonderful "side effects" for example increased vaginal lubrication. I hope that this helps someone as others have helped me too.

Having Severe Pain in Left Leg and Hip

Sat, 22 Nov 14 21:45:34 -0500
Posted by Yekara (Brookline, Ma) on 11/22/2014


I am having very severe pain in my left leg, esp around the outside of my hip. The pain is very bad and I am having a hard time walking, when I do it hurts a great deal. My leg started bothering me a little several days ago around the hip and got worse yesterday and it is very bad today.

I have had neuropathy in my legs esp the left one for a few years, not from diabetes. I am not sure of the cause. I have lyme disease. My legs look too white and often the legs swells somewhat. i have had foot pain on and off and numbness and some leg pain but this pain is really terrible.

I also have bad pain in my neck and shoulders; it is granular neath the skin and hurts a lot and my neck jerks and it feels crusty and stringy on the inside, normal on the outside. I am extremely tired and sleep very poorly and also have pain around hips, granualated like the neck.

I have lots of digestive trouble and feel extremely angry depressed and sad, often I weep hysterically and am very sensitive to any thing around me.

I take trazodone 100 mg for sleep and gabapentin for mood swings.

For the leg pain I am taking tylenol, using icy hot and heat and massaging

Any ideas would be apprecitaed. Thanks, yekara

 Re: Unlikely to Turn Blue from Colloidal Silver

Sat, 22 Nov 14 21:41:39 -0500

There are only 10 known cases of people actually turning blue. The one man who was called the blue man, actually used salt to make his CS. The bigger the particles the more prone to be trapped in your body. He stated he took 20 times the dosage for 35 years! So the lesson here is, use 20 PPM and dosage is easy to calculate:

Your body weight x 12 divided my PPM = number of drops. Example, if you're 125 pounds, and you're using a 10 ppm colloidal silver solution, you'd multiply 12 times 125 = 1,500. Then divide 1,500 by 10 (ppm), which is 150.

So at a body weight of 125 pounds, you can safely take 150 drops of colloidal silver per day, for your entire life, according to the Silver Safety Council. That's a little bit over a teaspoonful a day.

Neck and Shoulder Stiffness After Starting Turpentine Cure for Candida

Sat, 22 Nov 14 21:24:51 -0500

Posted by Jay (Canada) on 11/22/2014

It has been a week since I started the turpentine cure to get rid of candida. My shoulders and neck are stiff and sore now.

I've read this is because of my liver working overtime trying to get rid of all the nasties. I don't want to stop the turp treatment.

Should I do a liver detox? Or is there a supplement I can take to help with the shoulder/neck pain or the liver?

Any suggestions would be nice. Thanks in advance

Hi Pat;

well I have read so many testimonies how this drug is shall I say insane to get off of for some people with high sensitivity to it.. I think I am in that bracket.. But it does go by how long you were on it and the miligrams you took.. Since it's a beta blocker, it suppresses the receptors in the heart and when the pill is taken away bit by bit those receptors or adrenaline are activated again. I hope I got that right...Plus one has to get the drug out of the system ..there is def. a mental thing to it also.. If I were you, instead of cutting the pill extend the time you take it by 15 minutes a few times a week.. When you do the 15 minutes then extend it more time.. This way the drug comes out of the system slowly.. I hope this makes sense... So it's process of elimination and not cutting the pill. So now I am up to taking my 12mgs. pill at 5 pm already and then another 12mgs. at 12 midnight.. Hopefully I will eliminate the midnight pill.. does this make sense.??

Concerning Transdermal Absorption of Lugol's Iodine

Sat, 22 Nov 14 21:20:13 -0500

Posted by Stan (Huntsville, Al) on 11/22/2014

Are there parts of the body that are better for transdermal absorption of Lugol's than others?

For instance; the armpits --which may (or may not) provide of side benefit of deodorizing. The commercial holistic deodorants (such as Toms) don't work for me; but apple cider vinegar, milk of magnesia and baking soda do quite well. I'm thinking that a solution of Lugol's plus Oil of Magnesium (Magnesium Chloride) might serve multiple benefits.

Would appreciate any experience-based comments.

Hi Kimberly , I know the last time you posted was in 2011. And you mentioned the oxytrol patch really worked for you. What is your condition like now? I have IC , bladder spasms etc. I have tried everything and been to million Drs. this week has been so brutal for me. I want to try oxytrol because I know if at least my bladder could calm down I can heal. Do you have any more advice?

Hi Anna, I have an old Nutrition Almanac (2007) that reports vitamin D is the most toxic of all. High doses enhance calcium absorption which can lead to an increase in amounts of calcium in the blood. High doses can lead to calcification of soft tissues and the walls of the blood vessels and kidney tubules as well as formation of kidney stones. Because the capsules contain oils from genetically modified plants, I would would not take them. He can get enough D from foods and sunlight, which does not pose a toxic threat. Just my opinion.

Thank you so much for answering. I expected an e-mail notification when you replied and didn't get one, so just now saw it. Sorry for such delayed appreciation.

Thank you for the information on the turpentine. I have just been using in 3 times a week because it kind of scares me. It makes me a little nauseous and tired after taking it, hopefully that is just die off. But I am going to up it to 5 times a week like you suggest.

I found that putting it in milk makes it easier to swallow. Is it ok to put the castor oil and the turps both in milk?

I have not yet tried it with the 3 T if castor oil but want to try that this coming week if I can get brave enough.

Also, if I forget to take it before lunch, can it be after? Or if I take it in the evening will it effect sleep?

I have been following the rest of the protocol as you have advised and haven't noticed anything major passing thru me like some people report. I do notice some grey slime that is mixed in or encasing my stools. I hope that is either biofilms or else the grey stuff lining my intestines that you have mentioned. Do you know?

I am doing the alkalizing, the iodine and the borax now and they all seem to set fine with me. I have been so tired since starting the iodine, is that normal? Starting the Borax made me feel energized at first. It may just all be coincidence.

Thank you so much for your book and for answering my questions. I have finished the book since last posting and I feel that I am on a good path. I will keep you posted.

Also, thank you for the info on DMSO. I had never thought to try it because I thought that was something a doctor had to distill the bladder with. I will definitely try it.

HI U G... IN INDIA, , , , , , , , , , , can't help, but the Biologist that developed Curaderm says it will not work on Melanoma Cancer. I am now using it on my cheek, but it is not acting like it did the two other times. I now think my spot may not have been cancer. However , it is not supposed to affect normal skin. This has.

 Re: Gallbladder Attacks

Sat, 22 Nov 14 16:03:34 -0500

Posted by Douglas (Georgia) on 11/22/2014

I experienced a gallbladder attack back in March of 2011, 48hrs after quitting smoking. Had the typical ultrasound & hida scan works, all was well, so I figured it could be a withdrawal reaction. In my past 46 years, I've been in the hospital overnight only once in 2004. Now in the past month, I've been admitted twice...

1) 103.7 fever & sepsis, at which time I had mild lower left abdomen pain/ diverticulitis, but reason for fever & sepsis...Unsure?

2) Nov 9th had a one time episode diarrhea & nausea which caused a fainting episode, although the fainting is expected to be related to straining/vagus nerve, but still no diagnosis.

Now, three nights ago had my gallbladder attack...My question is: Is it possible to have a gallbladder issue w/ no painful symptoms? I mean could my 2 previous hospital visits be related to gallbladder?

To Bee: Sorry to hear you are having a hard time weaning. I also though was thinking of going to the next step, 7.5mg, and am having trouble. Don't know if it is in my 'head' or whether I just can't start taking a lower dose! What have you heard about this drug? You said you knew something about this? I will let you know.

I have this acne in my butt since I was 10 years old. I did not pay attention to them because they come and go anytime but recently I noticed that they're spreading and more itchy than before. I applied alcohol on the affected area in order to relieve the itch but it did not fully remove the itchiness. Can you help me get the best remedy please.

Anna, if your hubby wakes up feeling like he needs more air, or is gasping for air, along with daytime sleepiness, napping frequently, ask your Dr. to have him take a sleep apnea test. He may have moderate sleep apnea which can affect alertness during the day, affect his heart, brain function. I am a respiratory therapist x 20+years, this can be a potential life threatening problem (due to constant low oxygen blood levels, due to apnea). It is a painless test overnight monitoring and the use of a CPAP( continuous positive airway pressure ) machine is the solution for apnea, also if your hubby is very overweight, this also contributes to apnea issues. Please check with his Dr.

Posted by Msoptical (San Diego, California) on 11/22/2014

[YEA]  I have been doing studies on natural remedies for cancer. My husband was diagnosed with bladder Cancer, I was diagnosed with Endometrial cancer and my friend with AML. My husband and I are both in remission and so is my friend, All done with natural herbs and supplements. I had my friend with AML [Acute myeloid leukemia] take Coral Calcium, Milk Thistle, and Oregano Oil with carvacrol 70. After treatment with those three things she went into remission after four months! This is no joke! I did the same, and my husband did also but I had him add frankensense oil to his regimen. I'm not a medical doctor so I cannot legally prescribe any medication. I assume no liability. Just wanted to share my experiences with you. If you would like to know how these things work, ask me. I can explain in great detail.

Dear EC This new page system seems to not work. It only allows, what seems to be 2 pages of email posts, then only repeats the last 5-7 emails over and over. It did not do this the first day but has ever since the 2nd day. I do not have this problem with other sites that use this method. I must say it is not anything I enjoy using at all anywhere and wonder why this was implemented at all. I do love this site. Janet

EC: Thanks so much, Janet and Caligirl for letting us know about this issue. The Recent Posts page is supposed to load new posts as you scroll to the bottom, but obviously there's a glitch in the code! We have had a few requests to return to the old format of page numbers and will have EC's programmer fix this issue as soon as he's available in the next day or so. Apologies for the inconvenience.
