Will Vaseline Jelly Help Painful Mouth Sores?

Sun, 26 Apr 15 09:45:32 -0500
Posted by Roy Lee (Seria, Brunei Darussalam) on 04/25/2015

Dear Ted from Bangkok,

I have sore mouth inside. They feel dry, sticky and cutty sore. The weather is very hot since March. I catch a cold from the sweating and then exposed to wind and air-con. I feel so tired I don't even have the power to talk clearly.

Can I apply Vaseline petroleum jelly inside my mouth and on my gums? Is it alright to swallow it while eating and drinking?

Borax Cured 15 Year Scalp/Skin Fungal Infection

Posted by Lisa ( Syracuse, Ny ) on 04/26/2015

[YEA]  I've been suffering with a fungal infection on my scalp and skin for 15 plus years. It took me 14 of those years to actually get a proper diagnosis, that a fungus was actually the culprit. I get what looks almost like mosquito bites on my scalp, skin-mainly neck, back, upper shoulders and occasionally legs.I start with an intense itch that burns and feels prickly. I scratch until it bleeds .A scab forms and it constantly itches.The scabs take a very long time to heal. So at any given time I usually have 100 or more of these in various stages. I went through total hell. At one point I was putting high heat on my head and skin thinking it would help. It made it ten times worse. Hence heat spreads fungus. Unbeknownst to me, it got so bad I thought it was scabies.

Went to every Emergency Room and urgent care as well as family practice docs. None were helpful at all.They looked at me as if I were dirty and crazy! To the contrary I am extremely obsessively clean. Finally had one doc scrape a small inflamed area and analyze it under a microscope.I have tried everything from lindane to nix, creams, topical and oral benadryl, calamine, apple vinegar, tea tree oil, Alcohol, bleach...

Borax was the only thing that has worked! It's amazing! 3Tb borax with 1 liter of aloe vera(100%). Massage into affected areas after shower and at bed.I am 85% healed.Some of my scalp was severe. So it's going to take a bit to completely heal. Literally spent thousands and dealing with an itch that has kept me from sleeping some nights. For under $5 and about 5mins to massage borax I am almost all healed! I recommend this to anyone suffering with itching/skin inflammation. It's truly a miracle. Finally after 15 years, almost completely healed! It's been a long time coming!

Thank you, Robert Henry!

I'd been using tap water but wanted to double-check to verify that it was okay to use.

My humidifier came with instructions to clean the unit's base once a week with white vinegar, and to clean the water tank with 1T of bleach mixed with water, so I've been doing that all along.

Thanks, again!

P.S. Many of my family members and friends call me "Lizzie", too. :)

Screenscreen with SPF 30 Cured Difficult Case of Head Lice

Sun, 26 Apr 15 09:35:23 -0500
Posted by Lesha (Ottawa) on 04/24/2015

[YEA]  Hi all! Have had head lice for three years on and off...crazy, upsetting, and difficult! I have found an answer.I used sunscreen 30 for three hours. I noticed it was greasy and unwelcoming. To let you all know...I have tried all remedies!, dry hair and apply 30 sunscreen on the root lines first...apply a lot! Rub in and cover all hair like a helmet. Place shower cap on for three hours. Go to shower tap, bend over and apply a hardy conditioner for hair...rub in and add will feel a waxy effect taking place....wet hair with warm water and comb with small-toothed comb. It will be like taking a wet wax off hair...keep combing. Rinse hair in warm water...not hot! Now you have a seal. Wrap hair for 10 min. in towel. Release hair and blow dry on high. Stop and take a break...on head and upside attention to crown and back and 2 inches above again...stop and take a break...the hair will separate in small ribbons....dry more if you can/ Now sit and breath and have a not wrap hair again...put towel on pillow for sleep. In morning, blow again until hot...and wash hair as usual. Blow dry after or sun dry shaking hair and fingering. I hope this helps friends. Sunscreen 30 and later a hardy conditioner on top.... waxy buildup...comb. Blow hair...break for a bit...and resume/ Please no tears.... this will work!!!!

 Re: Smelling Turpentine May Have Stirred Something Up

Sun, 26 Apr 15 09:09:21 -0500
Posted by Scott (San Diego, California) on 04/25/2015

Hello Everyone,

I have been seeing links to these Artist Turpentine. I don't know if I would use that stuff as the bottle doesn't say 100% pure gum spirits. According to Dr. Jennifer Daniels you want to use 100% pure Gum Spirits which is different then the Synthetic Turpentine. I ordered mine from a company in Georgia who sells 100% Pure Gum Spirits. I have been using the Soap too which is pretty cool but haven't actually tried the Turpentine just yet as I had picked up a slight head cold yesterday. It's gone now but I am wondering since I couldn't smell too much I decided to smell the Turpentine that I ordered knowing it's somewhat similar to Aromatherapy that the things we breath in has an effect on us somehow. Anyways I was sniffing it a bit and I think it might have stirred some stuff up inside me possibly. Anyone know of smelling Turpentine and it basically doing anything for you internally etc? I know that I have Candida from all the Symptoms etc and will be knocking it out here real soon with this Turpentine. I also don't have the sugar on hand to start it either. But as Dr. Daniels states you must be well hydrated when doing this.

Thanks and I welcome your comments.

 Re: 72 Year Old Husband With Collapsed Lung, Eating Very Little

Posted by Namaw (Al) on 04/24/2015

Well, I'm getting my husband to eat. A boiled egg, instant breakfast, cheese, bacon, salmon cakes--not much at one time, but some every hour or so. He had terrible subcutaneous air while in hospital and then swollen legs and feet. The subcu air went when they put in the chest tube, the swelling got better with compression stockings. He is very afraid to sleep for fear the lung will collapse again.

My new question is this: all the bp readings/ blood takings were taken on his left arm and it is now very sore, the tournaquet was very tight as was the bp cuff. His legs are also very sore (from the swelling?)--any suggestions for how to treat this pain? I have put arnica gel on him, which he says helps a bit. He is skin and bones, todays weight is 124. normal for him is 133. He is also having continence issues, so is wearing depends. Thanks for everyone's suggestions and concern. I'm at a loss now what to do. So tired, a month of 20 hrs/day at the hospital has left me brain dead.

You can definitely order Lugol Iodine from any compounding pharmacy. Only they can order it from in Canada for you. You can get it in 2%, 5%, 7% concentration.

HI U TRICIA, , , , , , , , my ancestors came from Belfast way back in the early 1800's, so we kissin kin.

I would say that all 3% H2O2 bought in a brown bottle in a store has stabilizers in it. However, the fella who got EC started on this many years ago inhaled this type for 25 years and died last year at age 89. If it worked for Bill Munro, then I don't have a problem with it. That is what we used.

But, as the ole lady said who kissed a cow, " everybody to their own notion".

[SIDE EFFECTS]  I think I overdid it! Started putting drops in today and was doing a drop every few hours. Eye seems even more irritated now. What do I do? Stop using it? Keep using it but only twice a day? What did your mom do when she realized she overdid it? Should I rinse it out?

I was just reading your answer before coming on the earth clinic, always looking for solutions. Msm lowers vitamin c so I take mine together. Vitamin C affects elasticity (in the form of collagen in blood vessels)

Mold Is Growing In Homemade ACV

Hi, I am a big fan of apple cider vinegar and have been making it at home for the last few years. I always juice my own organic apples and put the juice in open topped jars to ferment.

This year all the vinegar is forming a blue & white mould on the surface, something I don't recall seeing before. This mould developed early on, just a few days after juicing. Is my vinegar ruined? Or is it salvageable if I let it continue to ferment?

I am 36 years old, I tried the cayenne pepper today and I took the two capsules of 40,0000 miligrams it still hurt like hell to pee. For some hours afterwards, I felt the heat of the cayenne pepper down my urinary tract, it does not hurt, but it does sting when I pee.

How many times should I take 2 capsules? I have no ginseng root and I was wondering will the ginseng shots (DRINK) work?
