Blackstrap Molasses for Higher Iron Levels
Sat, 18 May 13 15:19:26 -0500
[YEA] 05/18/2013: Stephie from Nc: "I had become anemic and had to be hospitalized to receive a blood transfusion. My iron levels were low to say the least. A friend recommended I try BSM in addition to taking iron pills. I took my iron pills with vitamin C, and I took another vit. C before drinking BSM in hot rasberry tea (which does not block iron absorbsion). I had a blood test on Friday and a follow-up on the following Friday. My iron level came up almost 100 points! After just 5 months of usage, I was in low normal range for the first time in 4 years! Now, one year later, I am in the middle of the normal range (just got a blood test in May 2013). I use 500mg, chewable vitamin C and BSM at night (a 2nd time in the day) when I feel a little more tired than usual."

Consider steaming with ACV and garlic or you may use oregano oil which is supposedly the most effective and one of the strongest E. coli killers, so I would put thyme oil 1 to 2 drops and 1-3 drops oregano oil in pot of water let it boil turn it off and breath in the steam drape a towel over your mouth and nose except keep you eyes out. Do this every 19 minutes throughout the day to kill the lifecycle of E. coli."

Re: Water for Health

05/18/2013: Om from Hope, B.c., Canada: "About Dr Batmanghelidj's Water Cure: This man was a humanitarian who was ignored by the present medical system. He has helped innumerable people back to health. If people drink water without supplementing with, for example, celtic salt, they will urinate, dehydrating themselves as well as loosing vitamins and minerals. It was the chemically manufactured salt that wreaked havoc with the world's population and caused an explosion of serious diseases that killed many. Because allopaths have no training in nutrition they misguide patients to their detriment.
I have just begun slowly and do not run to the bathroom because of the water drinking. The protocol is easy and must be followed meticulously. Get off to a slow start. Already I have noted the effect of water doing its work in the entire body. I hope this will, in addition of magnesium, cure my insomnia. It is nature, not drugs that will do it. I am thankfull toward the good doctor and think it would be of benefit to read his by now famous book, even though just doing the program would be alright So many people have been helped including pets. To be rightly informed is self empowerment. Be leery of the common table salt, but natural wet salts are delicious, provide much needed minerals and prevent the continuous problem of over urination. We are made mainly of water, so is the planet with vast resources of salt water. Sometimes I think that the intake of chemical and denatured salt over a life time could be a contributory factor of Alzheimers as our brain, too, is made up largely of water. We are all keen on learning how to get in touch and back to nature and with determination success will be ours. Love, Om"

Peeling can solve the problem because the molecules that trigger the allergy tend to be located near the surface of the fruits/veggies."

Odor and inflammation not always at the same time. I have very limited income and have to try to make due with what I have here. I'm still experimenting but read that creating an uninhabitable environment is best and with the proliferation of GMO's it is becoming more difficult but not impossible.

Help Requested for Ulcerative Colitis

05/18/2013: Berj from Munich, Germany: "Dear all, thanks for this wonderful site. I am sure it is helping tons of people with difficulties out there.
I would like to talk about my problem with Ulcerative Colitis and ask about recommendations.
I am 31 years old, diagnosed with ulcerative colitis since 2005 while I was working and living in Nigeria. (left sided, proctitise, chron's colitis, etc as it keeps on changing per medical doctors). Bloody diarrhea, weight loss and fatigue were all common. At the beginning of the disease it was getting controlled with steroids. Now after some years, flareups are frequent, and not controllable with steroids. I lost my weight from 70 kgs ( I'm 173 cm) and being athletic, to 50 kgs now and skinny, since I am sick all the time. The disease is effecting my joints too. I was hospitalized 2 times last year because of movement restrictions in my joints and heavy bleeding. That's the story in a nutshell.
I would like to know where to start. There's alot of information everywhere, but for sure the cure is not with medical doctors. It's just here, natural healing. So please can you advice how should I start healing my intestines?
1st you are mentioning, colitis is caused by mycobacterium. So I have to kill these in the first step, then the second step is healing the intestines and the 3rd step always supply building blocks for these healing so I do not get into flarups again. That's of course by avoiding alot of bad foods (which I do not eat actually). So please can you supply a personalized supplementation plan since you say everyone is different? I want to heal my intestines, get my health back and get back my body.
Are foods like gluten, lactose, eggs, seeds and nuts very bad and causing autoimmune reactions?
Moreover, how can someone visit Ted in Thailand? Is that possible?
Regards and thanks in advance.
Please feel free to contact me by email as well. This goes to anyone on this website. We are here to help each other, and together we are stronger.
Colloidal Silver for Chronic Sinus Infections

[YEA] 05/18/2013: Dave from Fountain Inn, Sc: "Concerning persistent sinus infections, all the posts above are enlightening and helpful. But if all else fails by all means don't forget to try colloidal silver. Over many years of fighting sinus problems I know this; when allergies strike and I'm getting stuffy, either a virus/fungus/bacteria is at work or the stuffiness will lead to an infection in short order. I get out my trusty colloidal silver (I make my own) and squirt some into both sinus cavities. One side will usually sting a bit. And poof. Stuffyness gone. Maybe one more application to both sinuses. Caught early enough I can knock out 90 percent of all infections immediately. The other 10 percent I have to keep re applying the colloidal silver over a day or two before being completely eliminated. I went from having four or five bad colds/broncial infections a year to none."

I have very thin skin under eye, dark circles, and very deep set eyes. To see my eyes puffed out is shocking. My mom started the castor oil for insomnia (loves it btw) but complains of the same after effect. I have read that the fatty acid chain in the castor oil is very unique and acts as a humectant, attracting water when applied on hair or skin. I am going to try the black tea bags on my eyes as this has always wored wonders for immediately ridding sunburn for me."
Methylene Blue Helping Anxiety, Panic Attacks and Intestinal Cysts
Sat, 18 May 13 09:17:35 -0500
] 05/18/2013: Bennie from San Diego, California: "UPDATE; Four months of Methylene Blue.
It has no effect on chronic fatigue - doesn't give me any energy; also doesn't keep me up at night if I take it right before bed.
There are two areas where it seems to have worked magic: Cysts and Anxiety; as well as other benefits for insomnia and problem solving.
It did clear up my long term liver/kidney/diaphram/intestinal cysts, and for that, I am very grateful. I stopped taking it for about a week, and the pain radiating from what used to be the most painful cyst began to return, so I am sure this is what fixed them, although I have no idea why it came back and whether to continue taking MB indefinitely.
Anxiety: There's something about MB that fixes my generalized anxiety. It's fairly miraculous in that regard. I did not take it for anxiety, but I notice an improvement (almost total resolution) when I take it. As a result, don't need xanax. Again not sure whether it is safe to take indefinitely for anxiety.
Along with the reduced anxiety, it helps me to focus more on problem solving. Not a complete resolution but a definite improvement. I have chronic fatigue related brain fog, and it definitely gives a boost in that department so I can see why it is being used successfully in Alzheimer's patients.
I think I am sleeping better -- deeper sleep, not getting up so much in the middle of the night, because of the MB, which is huge because I've lived through 25 years of insomnia. Used to take RX sleeping pills of various kinds (4-5 days per week) but not taking them anymore.
When I first started the MB in Feb 2013, I experienced significant tingling in my head (felt like brain buzzing). I was taking several milligrams of melatonin per night, and drinking coffee during the day. Both of those were a problem while taking MB but now, after a few months, I am able to drink a regular cup of coffee now and then with no adverse reactions. I also take a much lower dose (1. 5 mg) melatonin with no side effects. For some reason, tea creates no problems.
MB had no effect on yeast/candida, herpes related virus, or fungal infections.
Other than occassional "brain buzzing", I think MB may have a negative effect on vision (blurrier, esp at higher doses). It MAY have a positive effect on acne but I've been taking a skin/nail/hair formula as well and think it is because of that that my acne has improved.
I am taking 3-5 drops of 0.1% per day.
Perhaps E.C cross post this to Anxiety/panic attacks; and intestinal cysts.

Cleansing Toxins and Oral Hygeine for Swollen Glands and Rash
Sat, 18 May 13 08:58:24 -0500
] 05/17/2013: Notadrbuthasbrain from Fayetteville, North Carolina Usa: "Cleansing Toxins and Oral Hygeine for Swollen Glands and Rash
I recently broke out in a terrible blistery rash from my waist to my face. I had been in a hot tub, so initially I assumed it was an allergic reaction to the hot tub chemicals or a bacterial infection from the pH not being right. I was wrong. But first the rest of the story:
I was taken to the ER because my throat began to swell from the inflammation and I was having difficulty breathing. There I was pumped full of antibiotics and steriods. I immediately began probiotics to counter-balance the antibiotics, although there was little to be done but suffer the side effects of the steroid treatment. After that course of treatment was complete, the rash returned to a lesser extent. Also my neck glands were painfully swollen, so I knew infection was in my body. Finally, I also noticed constipation. This was when I started putting things together.
Where was the infection coming from? The nodes in my neck indicated the source of the problem was in my head area. The answer was in my mouth: periodontal disease. It along with stress had over-taxed my immune system, so that my bloodstream is full of toxins. When I went in the hot tub (which I never had problems with before) it relaxed me and released toxins through my skin: hence the rash. It had also caused my immune system to be lower, so that I had been sicker more often recently with upper respiratory infections. Those were secondary infections, however. So when they were treated and went away, the real problem was continuing unaddressed.
So I began treating my mouth every other day with a solution of 1 tsp of household bleach to 8oz of water (this kills staph and is recommended at periodontaldiseasetreatmentguide. Com) through a water pik after a 5 minute brushing, followed by 1 minute swish of 50/50 water and hydrogen peroxide, and also began a bowel cleanse (an organic fiber blend with colon cleansing herbs). Day one of the bowel cleanse/oral disinfecting reduced all of but one of my lymph nodes to normal, and only a few small patches of rash remained. In one week, my gums are in much better condition - although I will continue to disinfect my mouth twice a week for the rest of this year to allow bone to grow where the disease created pockets inside by gums. I don't have x rays, but better to be safe than toothless or worse.
Probiotics, oral hygiene, and detoxifying is working better than the drugs because it is addressing the root of the problem. Antibiotics and steroids temporarily brought relief but not permanent cure because they did not resolve the issue of toxin overload in my bloodstream nor did they resolve the periodontal issue, prolonging and ultimately worsening matters.
It's important not to make assumptions about what appears to be allergic reaction. Swollen lymph nodes happen when there is too many toxins for your white cells to carry, and these cause problems and symptoms in all kinds of ways in the body. They get expelled either through your hind end or through your pores. So if you have a combination of symptoms like mine, consider cleaning your mouth and bowels as a first step."
Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) Helping Wife with MS
Sat, 18 May 13 08:51:04 -0500
[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] 05/17/2013: Fred from South Africa: "My wife was diagnosed with MS seven years ago. The Neurologist started treatment with Rebiff and ocasionally she had to go to hospital to receive a cortisone drip. She had constant headaces, fever and spasms after the injection. She was only allowed to use Panado as a pain killer. (Sometimes up to 8 every day) As time progressed and relapses ocurred the spasms headaces and body pains worsened to such an extent that she could barely walk. Speech and bladder controll was also severely affected. She was introduced to LDN little more than a year ago. We started with a daily dose of 2mg after 9 pm, and she is now on 4. 5mg per day. She has no more headaches, never had a spasm again and can walk short distances without any aid. Her speech and bladder controll also improved. Although the MS caused a lot of damage the LDN improved her quality of life to a great extent. Pity we did not know about LDN sooner"

Honey for Stress Hives
Fri, 17 May 13 21:07:24 -0500
] 05/17/2013: Beautiful_soul from Atlanta, Ga, Usa: "Stress Hives Cure: Honey, honey and more honey.
I developed stress hives out of the blue and the first time it happened, one doctor gave me antibiotics. I got hives from head to toes and this incompetent doctor diagnosed me with shingles!!! Needless to say that he did not know what he was talking about and he did not help a bit, actually it made it worst because antibiotics are dangerous.
So I started an intensive research during the last 5 years and found out the reason for stress hives is actually very surprising: when you stress your blood glucose drops and cortisol levels rise in order to raise your blood glucose. The sole role of cortisol in the body is to raise blood glucose. Cortisol, when reaching the mast cells of the skin, creates hives and cortisol can take several weeks to adjust the right level of glucose in the blood.
I found out that honey does raise blood glucose in just minutes and when it does, cortisol is not needed. Remember this, cortisol will only rise when blood glucose is low. So how did I cure my hives and how am I preventing stress hives now? I take two tablespoons of honey each time I stress or cry and I don't have to worry about stress hives anymore.
If you are experiencing stress hives right now, do yourself a favor: take some honey and the hives will fade away in a heartbeat. I have seen it, I am a living testimony and I hope this remedy will bless all people who are suffering with this painful condition.
I will end this post by giving glory to God because it's after praying and asking God to show me the way to heal myself that I found the information. I received freely, therefore I give freely.

May I add try soaking your apples or fruits in 1c water w/ 1Tbsp salt for 15 mins? This helps remove soil, microbes and bacteria found on the skins of fruits and vegetables. Also, try rotating your foods every 4 days - meaning, if you eat an apple on day 1, avoid it for 3 days and ok to eat again on day 4. Maybe this may help, but if you can, it's best to avoid foods that makes you sick at all cost. Best of luck. :)"

I have a few family members and friends who were advised CPAP and or surgery for sleep apnea and I hope Magnesium treatment as above will help the many many more people out there who are having these problems.

Cat Litterfor Bed Bugs
Fri, 17 May 13 20:58:51 -0500
] 05/17/2013: Tam from The Valley, Ct, Usa: "I got rid of my bed bugs fast using cat litter. One web source said to crush the crystals with a mortis and pestle, but, time must have passed and I found a brand of cat litter that has micro crystals of sylica gel at the grocery. :-D The silica gel dries out bed bugs.
Place a container (I used the plastic ones we get when we order Chinese take out, they have a good footprint for furniture legs and are shallow, and free) under the most human/animal occupied furniture legs first. Bed bugs will die soon after they pass through the silica gel. Bed bugs can hibernate for up to 18 months, so keep the silica litter under the furniture legs for that long.
Also, that oil soap made for wood kills bed bugs on the spot. I used more than a healthy dose in several gallons of water. I have a back pack sprayer. For the wood bed frame (mattresses removed) I just sprayed away and watched them come out from every crack. After all was flooded and I saw no more movement, I used a towel on the bed frame and a mop on the wood floor. We let the frame sit for two days to dry then wrapped in saran wrap.
I do still have upholstered furniture wrapped in plastic. When 19 months pass since I saw the last bed bug, I will remove it. I wish I had known about the cinnamon, my kids would have appreciated that.
Within my first 10 days of panic, I bombed the house, and then lay DE all over the floor. Both were very bad ideas and in response to feeling desperate. My son did not breathe well with the DE (he has asthma) on the floor. My kids are older so I was not concerned about them ingesting the silica litter. In the containers placed under furniture legs it poses no harm compared to DE constantly being disturbed into the air.
We read some funny writings, it helped to laugh. The guy that wrote about the cat litter wrote that he missed his bed bugs, and, like him, I still have about half a bag (was $11.00) of the litter left."

With his new pillows he's breathing great with no more sinus problems!"
Mexican Cayenne Remedy for Sinus Headache Relief
Fri, 17 May 13 14:00:59 -0500
[YEA] 05/17/2013: Kay from Destin, Fl: "Instead of snorting cayenne; I use the age old Mexican remedy of coating the tip of your tongue in cayenne/red pepper for a few minutes. Instantly my mouth starts drooling/draining, so I do it over the sink (or keep tissues ready); with a minute or so my sinuses are running as well, and soon the headache subsides. Since I get sinus pressure/headaches often, I collect the little packets of "crushed red peppers" from the Pizza Parlor, to keep in my purse, desk, car, medicine cabinet, briefcase; they make this remedy "portable" and very handy, just stick your tongue in the lettle packet then wait for relief!"
Baking Soda For Split Nails

I also add apple cider vinegar and hydrogen peroxide to the mix, but the baking soda seemed to be the key ingredient. I drink 1/2 - 3/4 teaspoon baking soda in big glass, (12-14 oz or so) water first thing in the morning or at least one hour before a meal. I only drink it 1x per day."

Neti Pot with Apple Cider Vinegar for Sinus Infection
Fri, 17 May 13 09:41:53 -0500
[YEA] 05/17/2013: Kimber from North Illinois: "After 2 week of dealing with severe spring allergies which consisted of major head/ sinus congestion, watery eyes, and coughing from post nasal drip I felt maybe maybe a trip to the doctor might be a next step. I was taking a decongestant, a antihistamine , netti pot, and Apple Cider Vinegar 2x's per day, with all this I was feeling like a sinus infection was brewing- adding pressure and headache. So to get to the point- I hate going to the doctor and trying to handle this the best way I knew how. Desperate to get rid of this brewing sinus infection I took 1 tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar and added to the netti pot with warm water. After completing only 1/2 the treatment because it was very uncomfortable burning through my sinus cavity I had to stop. Well be prepared- w/ a box of Kleenex because war had been declared!!! With in minutes stuff/ infection was on its way out. Within an hour relief was being felt. As uncomfortable as the neti pot was with Apple Cider Vinegar the result were quick and immediate. Bye bye infection!"
Castor Oil and Activated Charcoal Helping Ptergygium

I had just accepted it until about four years ago when my vision began to be blurry. I don't know what they are; never been diagnos. I came across the Castor Oil treament and said to my self, it can't hurt to try. All I can say is, those dark brown, reddish, yellowish spots in my eyes have reduced in color and dimension and my Vision has improved beyond my expectation. Where they were brown, they are now yellowish, reddish has disappear; and yellowish is now very faint cream. It is working!!! I see a vast improvement for the time I have been using it, 2 weeks. I am going to keep it up. My treatment:
- 1 drop of Castor Oil in each eye at night (if I know I am not going back out, I start early)
- 1 drop of Activated Charcoal Eyedrop (found here on EC, on how to make)
I let the Castor Oil do it's thing for a couple of hours, follow by the Activated Charcoal Eye Drops
The first couple of nights, I had something like puss all over my eyes, I knew there was more going on there. Thanks EC!!!"

IFN-1 and Licorice for HIV
Fri, 17 May 13 09:36:30 -0500
05/16/2013: Arthur G from Bella Vista, Ar: "A recent article stated direct causal link between IFN-1 signaling, immune activation, negative immune reguator expression, lympoid tissue disoranization, and virus persistence. Results suggest that therapies targeting IFN-1 may help control persistant virus infections. This is a change from conventional IFN-1 of the past and the opposite in the belief IFN-1 inhibits the virus and chonic disease changes IFN-a.
I happen to use licorice which is IFN-2 which depresses IFN-1. Long term seems to work.
There have been problems with some basic research which has caused problems with treating HIV. Some of HIV statements are flawed which lead to problems in treatment. But I noted that the blog given here are wrong and are no help. On the other hand IMMU-25 used in india has showed some good results in herbal medicine for HIV treatment. I used it on FIV treatment and can verify the results. But I also added Eleuthero to increase results. Still there are problems with HIV with the increase in patients age. This has been showing up recently."
Re: Advice Sought for IBS
Fri, 17 May 13 09:28:08 -0500
05/17/2013: Trudyg : "First, you need to watch your diet. Keep a journal and record what you eat, when, how you felt, etc. Also note if you are stressed, tired, that sort of thing. You will notice in a short time what foods bother you when eaten often/occasionally/very rarely/in great quantities. For instance, I can drink 1 c of coffee but not 2 in a day. Some foods are definite triggers--chocolate, tomatoes, high fats. We are always told to eat whole grains, but this is very hard on ibsD. Well-cooked without peel is usually safe for fruits & vegs. Then, look at fiber. There ar 2 kinds, soluble and insoluble. The soluble is goopy, as in oatmeal and lima beans. The insoluble is roughage, like celery. Avoid the insoluble and increase the soluble. If you eat things like nuts, chew very well. Make sure you stay hydrated, water is usually good. Peppermint is an antispasmodic and can help with cramping--comes in capsules, too. good Luck. I've been helped by folks on EC so much, I'm glad I can pass it on."
Green Clay for Warts
Fri, 17 May 13 09:27:29 -0500
] 05/17/2013: Rebecca from Calgary, Alberta, Canada: "In the last year I had two flat warts appear on each index finger. My first attempt to get rid of them was to use duct tape for a week to soften them, then apply Black Walnut and ACV. ( I have used just AVC successfully in the past to get rid of a plantar wart that I had for 8 years! AVC got rid of it in a few weeks... Very painful weeks, but I was glad to be rid of it! )
The Black Walnut stained my skin, so I made the mistake of using a pumice stone every night to scrub off the stain, thinking that I would also be taking off the top layer of the wart. Eventually I stopped using the Black Walnut because of the stains and switched to cinnamon oil. I believe that the scrapping with the pumice stone actually spread the wart virus and my entire finger, between knuckles, began to show signs of a large, flat wart with several roots. I panicked! Unfortunately - my fingers also got very badly infected as a result. I ended up having to see a doctor who advised me to stop ALL treatments and use an antibiotic cream.
One of my fingers is very badly scared, the other healed, but still clearly had a flat wart... and recently two more popped up in the vicinity.
With oddly perfect timing I just got an eNewsletter from an herbal company I buy from (Dr. Christopher) and they suggested Redmond Clay. I could not find any, so I went with Green Clay ($9.99!). I mixed it with a bit of water, castor oil and several drops of frankensense. I applied before bed and wrapped it in cotton gauze. (make a batch and keep in an air-tight GLASS container. Do NOT use metal or plastic spoons to mix - use a wooden spoon! )
I could not BELIEVE the results!!! In the morning, the flat wart, clearly visible as a large red patch under the skin with several erruptions on the surface of my finger, had diminished by HALF!!! I was so excited that I applied a second treatment of the clay mixture and wore it the rest of the day. (it's very important to discard the clay after wearing it, as the clay's properties draw toxins OUT of the body and they collect in the clay. DO NOT REUSE! )
I forgot to do a third application before going to bed the second night... but upon waking have discovered that the red area, and the size of the flat warts continues to shrink, leaving healthy skin behind! I have just now applied a third dressing and already I can feel my finger throbbing very slightly and itching.
I am thrilled! This is much more gentle than ACV which previously really burned the skin on my hands and was very painful. I will continue to use Green Clay for all my skin issues down the road!"

Re: Blackstrap Molasses and High Iron Levels
Fri, 17 May 13 09:22:44 -0500
05/17/2013: Anon from Anon: "Hi all, Mostly here on earth clinic we recommend using Bsm to women who have very heavy periods. Some of these women will be iron deficient due to the extreme blood loss but this is only an added extra of black strap molasses the reason we recommend it is because it slows and stops the flow really quickly if you take atleast 3 large tablespoons with a glass of water each time spread over a day- more if you are heavier than normal. The reason it works is because of the vitamin k in it, the vitamin k helps our blood to clot. Bsm is good because whilst helping people with low iron levels it also helps those with higher levels balance out their values because it contains a balance of minerals and vitamins. It has a lot of potassium in it which helps balance our sodium levels. In Cyril Scott's book on the subject he recounts a huge list of illnesses that have been cured by Bsm - most notably cancerous growths. I appreciate this does not necessarily answer your question but hopefully I have shared some important information on Bsm."

Drink up. Make the next batch with the grains left at the bottom do that every day the acids produced from the ferments attach to any excess free form minerals floating in the blood and are removed in the urine in addition the 26 various microbes 3 different kinds make medicines that prevent and cure all illnesses.

Sometimes I used half oat bran with my wheat bran. I like to pour them into the muffin papers with a large ice cream scoop, less mess. Buttermilk pancakes are good too with cooked apples and cinnamon on top with a dash of powdered sugar. They also help clean the pipes while they rejuvenate the intestines."

Re: Wondering if Pain is Related to Diabetes?

05/16/2013: Judy from Denver, Co: "I know there are folks here that seem to be very knowledgeable and maybe someone can explain this.
Four years ago I took HCTZ (diaretic). Went two days without because could not get to drugstore. When I did take it again after approx 20 minutes I got up to get my dogs in and almost fell down. It took over half hour to manage to get outside and untie them and get in. Within 2 hrs my blood pressure shot up 20 pts. OK. That's a bad reaction.
Now I am on lasix and have been for over two years. I have been having this horrific pain in my hip joint and left knee for about two weeks. It had gotten to the point that even 2 tylenol tabs did not seem like enough. For the last two days I have skipped the lasix and gone to taking black radish and parsley as directed on the bottle and pain has decreased to the point that I take one tylenol about every 12 hrs. Swelling in right ankle and leg seems a little better and leg does not ache like it did before after being up on feet for more than ten minutes.
I do not know if my system cannot handle the lasix on consistant basis or if black radish and parsley is more natural and doing a better job. I tend to watch salt intake closely. My blood pressure is the same as it is on lasix. Also, I have decreased kidney function and am diabetic. BS under good control.
I think I will skip it one more day and take it again and see if pain comes back."
Re: Questions about Apple Cider Vinegar and Cayenne for an Ulcer
Thu, 16 May 13 22:14:22 -0500
05/16/2013: Mama To Many from Middle, Tennessee, Usa: "Dear Dee, I used ACV for acid reflux during pregnancy and I agree, it didn't make sense that it would help, but it was amazing how much it helped. (Prveviously, I had been on prescription meds for reflux. I didn't even need Tums the whole pregnancy I took the ACV. ) It also helped my gall bladder problem. You could start with a small amount 1/2 t. or 1 t. in an 8 oz glass of water and sip it and see how you do.
If you take the cayenne, you could take it with something like ginger. Don't get something with tons of Heat Units. (90HU would be too strong.) Again, start out small. Even just a few grains in juice. And it is better for digestion to let you mouth get used to it before it gets to the stomach. (Stomach's don't like surprises! ) Apparently, when cayenne or chili powder etc. Are heated and cooked that is when they cause trouble. Work up to 1/4 t. cayenne in juice. In Lalitha Thomas' book, Ten Essential Herbs, she tells about a man who had bleeding ulcers that were healed with cayenne. You should be able to tolerate more and more.
Slippery Elm is also wonderful for digestive trouble and so very gentle and highly nutritous. You can mix a teaspoon of it with warm water, like porridge, and a little honey if you like. It is kind of slimy, so if textures bother you it might not work well. Hope you get some relief soon!"

I couldn't eat or drink anything without having to run to bathroom and I alway felt like I was starving even nauseous feeling even during and directly after eating. Organic buttermilk was suggested but I could only find CULTURED or regular buttermilk so I chose the cultured at my local grocery store in milk section [ just FYI info for other desperate people ] to someone else that may not have acsess to healthfood stores and it was very inexpensive aswell...

Re: Bloodroot for Actinic Keratosis
Thu, 16 May 13 18:33:10 -0500
05/16/2013: Kgd from Saint Louis, Missouri/usa: "I mixed bloodroot powder with aloe vera skin lotion and applied it topically on AK lesions for a week but it did not seem to trigger any healing reaction. I would try it again however if needed, because I didn't really give it a fair chance: I did not keep moist lotion against the skin under a bandage at night which might have possibly increased effectiveness. Since there was no immediate result I switched to treatment with apple cider vinegar which I described in a different post.
I was surprised to find that bloodroot lotion temporarily stained the rough non-pigmented AK patches on the surface of the skin to create a sharp contrast with the surrounding skin so that it became clear exactly where the lesions were located and where the boundaries were. For the first time I was able to see that I had at least 10 distinct AK's on the surface of my scalp ranging from the size of a pinhead to the largest with 5/16" diameter. However bloodroot may not be necessary for this because the staining effect for AK location purposes might also be achieved with a more common herb like turmeric mixed with lotion."
Re: Hypoglycemia and Insomnia
Thu, 16 May 13 18:31:31 -0500
05/16/2013: Mama To Many from Middle, Tennessee, Usa: "Trudy, If the iodine drops say 2 per day, you could start with that. Does it say how much iodine you are getting? All drops do not have the same amount. I compared using iodine drops to what I take orally and I would have to take 20 drops a day to get what I am getting in pills. (And I don't like the taste of iodine in my water.) Anyway, start with 2 drops a day for a few days. Then do a skin test--drop a few drops onto your skin (I do inside my forearm. ) If it is gone in a short time, you are still iodine deficient. If you can still see it after 12 hours, you are getting enough. (Some say you should be able to see it after 24 hours. Broda Barnes has a book on Thyroid that explains it all but I haven't read it. ) If I can see the iodine spot on my arm after 6-8 hours, I think I am doing pretty well. (I really can't bear to take more iodine than I take. It just seems like too much to me.) I know my thyroid was low LONG before it showed up on a blood test. If you take your early morning, before rising temperature and it is low (Some would say anything under 98.0 is low... But I am not sure. Under 97.0 is definitely low.) My naturopathic doctor says you should not use a digital and you should keep it in your armpit for a full 10 minutes.
Anyway, you can increase the amount of iodine by a couple of drops if the iodine on your skin disappears quickly and continue to check on your skin and increase by a couple of drops etc. Until the iodine isn't absorbing quickly. Or, if you notice improvement, you could stop when that happens.
I can't recall how long it took for the iodine to provide me with noticeable difference. It was perhaps days or a week or two. But if I run out my symptoms come back pretty fast - mabye in a day or two.
You are dealing with lots of health challenges... So sorry! With the IBS are you possibly losing nutrients you need, causing health challenges? Comfrey is wonderful for this. In her book, Be your Own Doctor, Rachel Weaver says to use comfrey root powder and slippery elm powder to help and heal this. Both are soothing to the digestive tract and very nutritious. She has you mix them together with water to a dough like consistency and then make little pea size balls you can take throughout the day when symptoms flare up. Comfrey leaves can also be mixed with other soothing and nutritive herbs (like Red Raspberry) and made into a tea that will provide extra nutrients. I didn't use to think herbal tea would do much, but I have had some amazing help from them this year and have changed my mind. Activated charcoal is also a great thing for digestive difficulty and helps detox as well (but very gently. ) Just don't take it near time of other supplements as it adsorbs toxins and may also do the same with nutrients. (I take it leaving a 2 hour window. ) You can mix 1 t. In water or take tablets or capsules. Just a couple of more things to consider... Hope it isn't too overwhelming... Praying for relief for you."

05/16/2013: Caitlin from Austin, Tx: "Our bodies don't seem to have a mechanism for getting rid of excess iron. Leaches, fleas, ticks and parasites in and on our bodies was probably the way our ancesters got rid of excess iron. Health scientists have postulated that excess iron may be a contributer to heart problems. A health practitioner once told me that iron stays balanced when a young women has periods because iron is lost on a monthly basis; when she gets older and post-menapausal, too much iron is retained. He recommended giving blood monthly as a way to alleviate high iron retention. As a younger woman, I was once told I retained too much iron in my blood, I never delved further into this, so if anyone has, please enlighten us all. The Protein Power book also addresses this problem."
Matches Helped Son's Plantar Wart

Nothing was working, but we soaked match heads in water for a few minutes, just to soften the sulphur enough to spread. Twice a day with a loose bandage (tight or even firmly attached hurt after a few minutes). Couple of weeks it was gone. Feet can be hard in the winter with boots and sweating. The sulphur didnt sweat off, it stuck to the wart, and I filed it whenever possible (a 5 year old generally is not patient enough to fuss over his feet). I didn't burn the match on his foot, thought he may freak, but matches were the only remedy that worked."
