[YEA]  Hi Oscar,

I have read up on your posts regarding BHT and I am trying it out now. I have had Hep B for the last 15 years. Although my liver function tests are all normal I have experienced extreme fatigue for the past 2 years or so. I am also hypertensive and on a mild dose of blood pressure medication metaprolol.

Can you please tell me if it's safe to take the BP medication after I take BHT in the morning?

Regards, Monica

I also had surgery on my nose. I had my sinuses removed as well as plastic surgery on the nose in order to repair a badly broken nose. I can taste a little bit, but can't smell a thing. Can I expect it to come back? It has been 5 weeks now and I am beginning to worry.

Is ACV okay to use with sensitive skin? My face gets irritated easily.

[YEA]  After my doctor wanted to put me on beta blockers, I decided to go more natural doing my homework I discovered COQ10 is supposed to have an effect on BP.

After experimenting with 50 mg tablets three times a day no change occured. I started I taking 200 mg of COQ10 a day I dropped from 140 to 125 in the first day. One 100 mg at breakfast and one 100 mg at dinner does the trick.

HI U DOIN Mmsg, , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Guess I missed my point as I was not talking about a gym.

Let me explain..... when we built our cabin back in '91, we put in a standard 5'X 7' sauna . We also installed a Jacuzzi tub. Since then we have added an Ozone generator and remodeled the sauna to a custom FAR sauna with a happy light. We have added facilities to do a coffee enema. We have recently added a ionic foot bath for detoxing. I have just ordered a Amethyst BioMat and that has to go to our bedroom because there is no more room in our bath. We also have a foot vibrator that we use for our lymph system.

Our workout equipment is out on the deck. I seldom use that stuff any more. Jus sorry.


  Re: Apple Cider Vinegar for Basal Cell on the Nose

I've taken warts off and helped heal many skin aliments with ACV (with mother) (the brown stuff in bottom of bottle). It kills the fungus and bacteria on certain skin disorders. Even works well on fever blisters - it will burn like the dickens though. Lemon Balm is very effective on fever blisters. But back to the skin cancer. There is a black salve you can take certain types of basal cell cancers off with, called the "original black salve." I've taken several off my arms, chest- after doctor had taken a few off. They generally never come back. If they did, I reapplied, and they went away. I'm speaking of pinkish small type- NOT crusty types.

The problem with trying to effect a crusty type cancer, is that nothing seems to get UNDER the crust. My Dad played around with his black crusty spot on his arm for a couple years- and finally persuaded, he went for biopsy and it was melanoma. Quite extensive surgery, although the top part was only size of dime (or less). They spread out UNDER the skin. They took out two lymph nodes when they did the rotor rooter surgery on his arm. And found nothing in the lymph nodes, so caught it in time.

Now he's making excuses why he doesn't need to go back every 3- months, then 6 months.... oh YES, he's going back!!

I suspect something he is eating or drinking is triggering the cold sores. There's a lot of artificial ingredients and dye in candy and gum. One or more of those ingredients could be a trigger.

Artificial sweeteners, besides being in diet soda and diet foods is used in most chewing gum formulas these days. Artificial sweeteners are the biggest trigger of cold sores, besides viruses. Also, many brands of ice cream contain a huge amount of artificial ingredients.

I'd start looking there there first. I'd also be building up his immune system at the same time with vitamin C, garlic, echinacea and goldenseal.

Check out L-Lysine on the web. Read Amazon reviews, etc. It's supposedly the bomb cure for cold sores.

Lemon Balm (Melissia Officials) (may have spelled wrong). You can grow it and wet and squeeze the leaves and place on the sores, or can make a tea from the leaves and drink it. Or you can get it in the capsules to take. That is a natural way of healing. Plus apple cider vinegar helps heal them, as well as Lysine, and a few other home remedies (google) The doctor can prescribe him Valtrex- if he's not too young for it, that stops them in their tracks if taken right when the tingling starts. and a day or two- if taken after the sore begins- rather than a week or more of suffering. There is also a very expensive ointment that is available. (with prescription) Acidy foods- such as oranges, strawberries may be irritating also.

Stress usually brings these on. And even the fear of getting one can cause stress. So, I would suggest to get something from the doctor appropriate for his 9 years.

Of course, yogurt (esp. greek yogurt) with live cultures is a good thing too- and may hold them off from coming on.

9 yr old boy with outbreaks of 'school sores'

He has a "Sore Breakout "every now and again. Eats good variety of fresh veges and fruits. Drinks water and milk.. has fresh caught fish. is not a junk food child gets lots of our Australian sun very active but then has to stay home when he gets a outbreak.. I personally think it is cold sore as I used to get them and still do. Occasionally his mother has had the odd cold sore. Over the years currently using Betadine cream and it seems to work. I personally use vinegar when I get a tingle. but don't think he would cop this one.. don't believe that he is lacking for vitamins or minerals..

Any ideas or clues would be appreciated as it keeps him away from school for a few days each time... much to his disgust. Thankyou

Sea Salt and Rice Wine Poultice for Trigger Finger

Thu, 08 Oct 15 16:22:55 -0500
Posted by Wendi Patterson (Oklahoma, City) on 10/08/2015

[YEA]  Trigger Finger:

Get sea salt that you buy for aquariums. Not just regular sea salt. Go to an Asian store and buy rice wine. Take a pan and heat the salt and then pour the rice wine into the pan. Make a poultice and wrap the affected area with the poultice in gauze. I place surgical gloves on my hands and wear it over nite for about two nites

Check it out and see the results.

Hello. A bit of daily outdoor fresh air and sunlight helped me. Also (sorry) more diet advice. Plenty of probiotics for gut flora. Yogurt, kefir, pickles, kimchi, etc. and a good omega 3 source. I truly believe in the mind/gut connection. Keep your system flowing and be gentle with yourself concerning the panic attacks. I used a mantra of sorts: "This feeling is (tight) and (restricting) and (heavy)" fill in the blanks with how you'd feel. Then I closed my eyes and breathed deeply while imaginig imagining how it looked. Then I'd say, "But, I can handle it" and carry on feeling so much stronger. By the grace of GOD I no longer have them and feel so much healthier. Best wishes.

ORH, as a detail of your great suggestion: exercise needs no gym, nor expensive gear. Anything around the house can be a exercise helper: bags of sugar are weights for beginners, a wall or later a table and later a floor, are great for wall/table/floor push ups, a strong bed can be gently trampolined upon, etc. You get the idea.

Hi Connie - Thank you for the update. I am new to Earth Clinic and am glad I found this site. It's encouraging to see that some natural remedies have helped people find relief from TN pain.

I was diagnosed with TN in 2000. I was prescribed Tegretrol and have been taking it since then. I read somewhere on Google years ago about B12 injections but didn't have enough information it. So I chose not to try it. I did try the sub-lingual B12 which didn't seem to help, but I probably didn't take enough.

I have so many questions that I hope someone will be able to address.

  • How long did you take it before you started relief from pain?
  • Do you recommend a certain brand?
  • How many mcg should I start out with?
  • Does anyone know of a Naturopathic doctor in the Phoenix, Glendale Arizona area?
  • Has anyone heard of tried Rosemary Tea and Ashwagandha Oil to help relieve TN pain?

I have suffered with this horrible disease for 15 years, but I continue to have hope and pray that the Lord will lead me to my pathway of healing. I pray for everyone who has been diagnosed TN that you would discover your pathway of healing too.

In regards to vegetarian or non-vegetarian, (a post done in 1-2015), I have to have protein, and lots of it, or I experience heart rhythm problems. I'm not talking about eating red meat 3 times a week, I'm speaking of eating 2 eggs every morning, and chicken or fish (salmon or similar) for my meats. I have red meat (ground range fed beef- no hormones added) in something at least once a week. But, I'm not getting a lot of that unless I cook it into hamburger patties. I've tried doing less protein, and it just doesn't keep my sugar level even. I drink Almond (no sugar added) milk- when I feel I want milk. I don't do a lot of sugar foods. They do a whammy on me too. But I am trying the Organic Unsulphured Molasses by Plantation. I'll try 1 T in morning, and I T late in evening. And report back. I'm hoping it helps my 59 year old body in more than several ways.

One more thing about being a vegan. My SIL [Sister in Law] ate hardly no meat at all and got cancer of the uterus a couple years ago. They caught it in time, but scared her really bad. Since then, she's gone completely Vegan, and looks like a skinny pole- and hollow cheeks. And likes to tell everyone else they are too "fat." I notice her hair is still very thin, and complexion is not well. She says she feels fine, but then she said always says that. It's a pride thing with her.... She's 58. Perhaps eating hormone free meat (that's always what I buy) is not so bad. Either that, or lots of beans!! And they bloat me.... Of course, don't forget the power vegees to go along with the meat!

Ya'll keep posting!!! It's so much help to read everyone's experiences.

Hi Suseeq - Not sure if you still come to this site but I am curious to know how your husband is doing since the surgery. I've read that most people have the surgery (MVP..I think that's what it's called.) and it only made it worse and in addition resulted in loss of hearing, eyesight or numbness. If your husband didn't have this procedure done, would you mind telling me what it was? Thank you
