Bacopa Powder for Memory Loss (New Ailments Page Created, Thank You!)

I'm surprised Memory Loss is not under Ailments - please add it. Or maybe I forgot where it is. (haha) ML does not necessarily mean one has Alzheimers or Parkinsons so sending seekers re: ML to those categories doesn't help. Maybe the seeker is just older. But many just older people don't have ML. So for that reason, when I developed ML, I decided I didn't have to just take it and have been looking for remedies for years (without success on Earthclinic! ). Mannatech was only slightly helpful and expensive - $60 a month if found on Ebay.

By age 72, I had gotten to the point that I frequently could not recall things like names of famous people, movies, hotels, cities, etc. Others were always filling in the word I was seeking. I was very high functioning otherwise and in good health. Somewhere I found out about Bacopa Powder. I buy mine on Amazon. After finally disciplining myself to taking the recommended daily portion of the Bacopa (only about 1/4 tsp a day in hot food or liquid) with no more skipping, within a few weeks I noticed my ability to recall information was better and now months later my recall ability definitely has improved significantly. I still don't have my goal of instant recall all the time, but I am now always able to retrieve the name/word I want within minutes.

EC: Thank you for the suggestion - new page for ML added on 7/28/16!

Baking Soda for Arrhythmia

My 83 year old friend had problems with extra heart beats for years and was given meds for it. The meds did not help. She started taking 1 tsp baking soda in water once a day and in a week healed the heart problem! She continues on this dose and has been taking it for 6 months now and heart problem has not come back. You cannot tell her that baking soda is just for baking bread!

  Re: Treating Cancer With Apples

Posted by Hisjewel (America, New York) on 07/28/2016

With all this talk about the healing properties of certain fruit seeds, I have a question. Has anyone been putting whole Apples skin, SEEDS and all in their smoothies for years? I know someone personally who has been doing this for at least ten maybe fifteen years. And she gets great doctors reports though she does not give the credit to the apple seeds, they are just part of the fruit not to be wasted.

I'm asking this question because in my interest trying to learn about amygdalin, at least one site said don't put apple seeds in your smoothie. But it seems to me that in the absence of a warning sticker on the apple, this friend has stumbled on a healing helper. So the question is, "Has anyone been using the whole apple in your smoothie"?

One other important thing is to take Vitamin K2 (as MK-7). It tells the body where the calcium is SUPPOSED to go and little by little takes it out of the places it does NOT belong.

Lemon Juice and Olive Oil for Kidney Stones

I was diagnosed with a 3mm kidney stone mid-June when I experienced really bad flank pain on my right side. Found out it was in my right ureter. they just gave me pain meds & antibiotics and said drink plenty of fluids. I had blood in my urine and eventually the pain just stopped. I never caught a stone through the strainer so I thought maybe it passed without me knowing. Met with a urologist and did an xray and they said no stone was present. then on to J uly 18th -- I experience these really bad UTI - like symptoms. urgency to urinate and burning/stinging pain. got lab work and was placed on antibiotics. finished the 7 day treatment and made another appt to see my urologist because the meds didn't do anything and I just knew it wasn't a UTI. I begged for another ct-scan and what do you know... stone is still there.. and now its stuck in my bladder which is causing spams (therefore the urgency/burning feeling) and he said, if you really can't handle the frustration and discomfort anymore, we can do surgery.

So they scheduled me for surgery this coming Tuesday... but I was really trying to avoid that and thats when I came across this olive oil/lemon juice concoction. I started it yesterday morning (7/27) and did 3 shots of it through out the day (bfast/lunch/dinner) and when I woke up this morning (7/28) to use the restroom... BAM! It's at the bottom of the toilet bowl.

Why didn't I just do this the day I found out I first had kidney stones?? I was skeptical too... thinking 'really? ur gonna make me drink olive oil?' ... but I'd say it definitely worked. THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! No more surgery for me! :)

Hi Stacy,

The doctor didn't check for pinworms already?

I don't know if my recommendation will help, but several years ago, I had this issue and I was told I didn't have a yeast infection. But the symptoms sure seemed like it, along with other yeast issues. After many months of trying different things, I bought a supplement from the health food store, I don't know if it will be printed here because it is a name brand, but I have no affiliation with this company, and found the product after locating a website on line where a doctor recommended his formula for yeast/fungal infections, but it was too expensive. He listed the ingredients, and I only found one product in the store that had nearly all of his ingredients called Candida Cleanse (by Rainbow Light).

All I know is after the first dosage, within about half an hour (if I remember correctly) the itching stopped. It was the first time I had real success. It returned later that same day, but after taking the recommended dosage that evening, again it stopped.

If EC can't print the brand name, I will come back and list the ingredients. The reason I didn't want to do that, is when I found the product, it didn't list 2 of the doctor's recommended ingredients, and I don't remember what both of them were (one was burdock root). All I know is the product worked for me. Every day it got better, and eventually it cleared up all of my issues. If I remember correctly, the itching was mostly gone within a week, but as soon as it started to faintly come back, I would return to the product.

Since she is so young, taking a single supplement before meals might be easier than some other methods. But, you would need to verify that it is okay to give a half tablet since an adult dosage is one tablet. Since it is herbs, etc, and she is over 6, I wouldn't think it would be a problem. Emailing the company they could tell you I think.

I will add, that I also took molybdenum as recommended by Ted, to bind up any killed off fungus so it doesn't cause other problems.

Mine was a yeast problem for sure, I could tell by what was removed from the body.

Also, I since learned that many of the newer washing machines without agitators don't do a good job of cleaning our clothes...

Please let us know how she is doing. :-)

  Using Borax instead of Shampoo

Thu, 28 Jul 16 12:31:29 -0700
Posted by Marianne (Kansas) on 07/28/2016

I have used borax water to clean my hair for years. I use 1 teaspoon of borax in a cup of hot water to dissolve. Then I put it in an empty 16 oz shampoo bottle and top it off with RO water - we're on well water which is extremely hard.
In the shower, I shake the bottle and use about 1/4 of it on my hair to clean it. Rinse, spray with ACV water (1 part apple cider vinegar to 5-10 parts water, in a spray bottle) and then do a final rinse.
The ACV in the spray bottle is not an exact science, seems to work just as well with the weaker amount, too.
Good luck!

Could Lugol's Iodine Cause Diarrhea?

  Re: Bill's Candida Diet Protocol

Thu, 28 Jul 16 10:24:23 -0700

Hi Bill,

Sorry, yes. I do have systemic candidia from my scalp to my toes, including oral and vaginal thrush. When my scalp gets red and itchy, I dab a little oregano oil or tea tree oil in the location. Same for my toes, but sometimes I just use a coconut oil concoction which is mixed with either lavender essential oil or tea tree oil. I alternate every week or every two weeks between the essential oils. it works fine for me.

The oral thrush seems to present itself in the mornings. It's not as bad as other photos I've seen on the internet since I can still brush away the coating, but there is a definite taste and it passes the 'candida spit test'. I imagine the thrush will go away with your protocol?

I wanted to tell you that I took your recommendation to try a little honey and turpentine once a week and continued the castor oil and turps twice a week. About two weeks after I began, I passed an 8" tapeworm! Wow! That surprised me, but it was also really cool! (Of course, it's hard to share such news with friends and family. Imagining the look on my mom's face just made me laugh. She's afraid of worms, lol.) I felt good after that, but uncertain if it was a real physical response or just the natural high of feeling a sense of progression on this journey. I felt like I hit a milestone in my healing process. I wish I could say I enjoyed the raw honey, but with the way it goes, the process is so quick, I don't get time to enjoy the sweetness, LOL! Most of the time I'm trying to keep the turpentine from dribbling onto my chin. Honey and turps day is always amusing for me. I am grateful no one is at home to witness my morning theatrics.

Moving onto your suggestion of how to deal with tiredness I get after eating. It happens less often now thanks to your baking soda suggestion. Now, I just move the baking soda protocol to after I eat instead of before. I hope that's okay. (I was just feeling overwhelmed with all the drinks, and still am, really.) Sometimes it doesn't work, and I kick it up to 1/2 tsp on the next meal when I'm fairly certain I'll get knocked out again.

I love Gymnea Sylvestre tea. I keep a really big tin of it now. When I have congestion from gas or have digestive issues, I add a few ginger slices to the steeping process, and it eases things. I add more ginger if I feel the gas or 'cold' enter the upper abdomen area. Sometimes I take extra baking soda/water. I also tend to add iodine in the tea so I can easily have it first thing in the morning, lunch and dinner. Can I mix the GS tea with chamomile tea or green tea? I could use some variety in my life, regardless how minute. I'm sure you know what that feels like.

Chlorella is fantastic! I take it even on the non-turpentine days when I start to experience die off symptoms and usually feel better afterward. Of course, it doesn't seem to work when I have flare ups, but it's actually a nice way to discern between the two. if I think its a flare up, I eat a lot of garlic and or ginger with my next meal. If I feel worse, I take chlorella and if it clears it up, great. If not .. well, I just lay down a bit before pressing onto the next part of the protocol. If it's bad, I pause the protocol and let my body rest for the remainder of that day. That's why I like your program, Bill. I am learning to listen to my body and go at its own pace.

Another plea for help is coming : Over the past few days I have had allergy problems. Before I continue, and in case it's relevant, I want to add that I've been getting a few mouth and tongue sores lately. The tongue sores I can easily treat with a dab of allum (let sit for 1-2 min, then rinse clean and don't eat or drink for at least 30m after), but the sore inside of my cheek doesn't respond to it, so I just gargle with Celtic salt and water before I got to bed and just ride it out.

The allergy is my main concern. I tend to get ear infections from them. I expected that I would get an allergic response when the weather warmed up here as I tend to get them during spring and fall, but this one arrived in the summer. I have a constant runny nose and post nasal drip, but now it's starting to approach my ears. I notice this whenever I swallow. I'd like to avoid a middle ear infection, which is what I usually get when this happens. In the past few years, I've used homeopathic pills such as Pulsatilla, to help prevent things getting worse, but I'm not sure if that will be okay to do given their sweet nature. Someone said the allergies could be candida related. Any thoughts on that and how to proceed?

PS: I finally bought the Carnivora. (Haven't taken it yet.)

There was certainly a demodex mite connection with my rosacea. I felt crawling on my face especially at night. Tried a cream with tea tree oil which reportedly kills the mites and it has worked. My skin is rosacea free for first time in ten years. This rosacea cream I bought also has east cape manuka oil in it.

Castor Oil for Arthritis

Castor Oil for arthritis is terrific. Yesterday my hand was "achin' like a toothache" (as my dear mother used to say) all day. I tried ibuprofen, some ointment I had (stuck at work) – nothing. When I arrived home I took out my trusty castor oil, just enough so I could rub my hands together for a few minutes (it's not watery at all) and voila! – not 30 minutes later the ache was all gone and still feels good this morning. Love it!

If you heat up the shoulder or joint with hot water from shower head 45 min constantly around area morning and once a night for five days in row as hot as possible, organisims die at 106 degrees, and then you will be fine. I recommend light diet especially green juices as magnesium is needed and must be diligent with heat as the object is to get joint around bone over 106 deg for a duration where parts of joints tendons disks knee joint ect. don't get blood or immunity help and organisms flourish here.

How reach them? Heat and dmso after 5 day hot treatment. I've done it with lyme disease in knee and elbow. I use shower head with cord off hanger over head and spray around elbow for 45 min, as hot as possible to heat up core joint over 106 degree. The body cannot heal joint as fast as organisms destroy and poop causing inflammation but kill them all and watch how fast body fixes area I use electric water heater as 120 degrees can be slightly lessened by moving shoulder head away from area spraying around joint I took maximum heat around areas hotter and hotter to get used to as not to shock right away when first starting oil heater is 130 deg and can burn must be turned down thermostat I guess I've always used electric hot water from hot water tank system as 120 deg is hot work with it it will work in ten days knee pain for one year gone ebow 3 days gone. The bigger the joint the more diligent you must be. I recommend coq10 300 a day and green juices because green juices loaded with magnesium and tighten joint and spray too.

Thank you all very much for all the prayer support.

I was able to make my first visit Wednesday night. I believe the severity is mainly caused by the cancerous lymph node located close to the kidney thus affecting that organ and contaminating the entire body like a hurricane with not even a chance to start treatments. Temporarily off dialysis, received several units of blood, on respirator, pain meds. Was not able to recognize me (at least consciously anyway) but did speak some earlier in the day. So, at this point he needs to recover enough strength to take the cancer treatments, which will be determined in the next few days; so the situation looks quite dire but he is being flooded by Love & Prayer, so thanks again for sending it.

Magnesium for Ganglion Cysts

Ganglion Cyst: I had raised painless red lumps on both thumbs near the joint, I read the posts on Epsom salts treatment which are full of magnesium, & thought it would be easier to take magnesium tablets. I took two 500mg tablets a day- one in the morning, the other at night. After 3 days I thought the lumps looked slightly smaller. I continued taking the tablets. After 3 weeks the lumps were now gone, but the skin was still red. I continued taking the tablets & after another couple of weeks the redness was totally gone.

I now take a maintenance dose of one tablet daily, & now several months later they have not returned.

I found out I had genital warts about seven months ago and nothing worked. I tried cryotherapy five times, aldera, tea tree oil, garlic, ACV, and witch hazel. I decided to try hydrogen peroxide (8% food grade) and noticed a difference the next day after applying it at night with a cotton ball. I've been using it twice a day for a little over a week now and the warts are almost gone. Cheap, fast results, and no side effects that all of the other methods had. I know you can't cure genital warts but I definitely feel so much better knowing that if I do have another outbreak, I can use hydrogen peroxide as a quick remedy.
