Ally and Jerry: I don't know whether this will help you, but I'll tell you what happened to me.

Years ago I got an injection in my hip. The area at the injection site developed a huge crater and it was there a very long time. My PCP couldn't advise me but ordered a biopsy that was "normal". I cannot recall how long it was there but I started to vigorously scrub over it with the towel after I showered. Once in awhile I would rub/massage the area with my fingers and eventually it filled in...I just assumed the stimulation helped regenerate the skin cells.

Since the areas are on your faces, I would suggest applying vitamin E (pierce the capsule) on the area after massaging and before you go to bed to help reduce scarring. Apply vitamin E before exposure to the sun. It would be best to use a small band aid to keep it covered. Taking vitamin E internally has also been reported to help reduce scarring.

I hope this works for you. :-) ~Kt~

My reply to Mama of Many regarding your well water... it's easy to think it's safer than city water. But my brother in law's family were on a well, and two of their four children were diagnosed with diabetes, insulin dependent. It's very sad because now they have to be on diabetic meds for the rest of their lives. They traced the issue to pesticide run off from the farms around their property. So please get your water checked (if you haven't already).

And thank you for sharing your remedies for hypothyroid. I am hypo, and take iodine daily, plus all the vitamins I can afford.

Best wishes, Lauren

Multiple Remedies Not Helping Deep Wrinkles

Wed, 25 Feb 15 23:36:53 -0500
Posted by Wieas (London, UK) on 02/25/2015

I am in my mid 50s and need help with deep wrinkles around the side of my mouth. A couple extend down to my chin and the others extend just across to my cheek almost in a puckered up, raised, sort of way.

I have been using a Vitamin C serum with hyaluronic acid in it on my face for the last month or so. I use virgin coconut oil on top of the serum. I have used coconut oil on and off for about a year before the wrinkles appeared. Additionally, I also take 2 hyaluronic acid tablets and one biotin tablet daily. I can't see any positive results yet. Maybe I'm impatient and expecting a miracle too soon!

I used to be a 20 a day smoker but stopped that 2 years ago. I also used to drink alcohol but have not drunk for over 5 years now. For about a year I have been drinking about 12 cups of water a day.

My main concern is that these wrinkles might be hereditary. When my mother was alive her face was, for many years, leathery-looking and completely lined with deep wrinkles. She looked at least 20 years older than she actually was. She was a heavy smoker for over 50 years so that may well have been the reason. I think her skin started the wrinkling when she was in her 50s. I don't really know why her wrinkles were so bad because other people who were her age and smoked equally as heavily had nowhere near the amount of wrinkles she did. Also her brothers and sisters who smoked never had that amount of wrinkles. She did however have mental health issues which gave her irrational thoughts and she spent much of her life tormented with irrational thoughts running through her head. Whether these thoughts may have contributed to the wrinkles as well as her smoking habit I don't know.

Funnily enough, I don't really have any other bad wrinkles on my face. A few crow's feet (or laughter lines as I prefer to call them) and a couple of faint ones under my eyes but these are nothing really. It's just that every time I look in the mirror at the deep wrinkles I imagine my mother's face looking back at me!

Even though I have described my mouth wrinkles as deep and they are, they are also kind of bunched up and raised, if that makes any sense. Maybe it's because some of the wrinkles are close together and pushing the skin upwards?

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

 Re: Bleach and Water for Scabies

[SIDE EFFECTS]  I'm trying to get my head around the fact that someone knowingly sprayed themselves with bleach, and not only themselves but their child as well.

Sure, bleach will kill mites and also you, if you inhale it and have an unknown allergy to it..

...we already live in a world where our bodies have to cope with many external contaminants such as pollution, and commercial shampoos etc that are mini labs of chemicals designed " to clean your hair" etc. The pores on our skin are there for a reason...

Try to buy a large ( possibly 2 litres that we can buy here from local supermarket) bottle of ACV. It doesn't even have to be organic . Failing that , brown or white vinegar, will do..dilute 1 cup of vinegar to 4 cups of warm water, which should be a 2 litre bottle..a plastic bottle would be more practical where you shower than a glass bottle and can safely be reused, without breaking.

Try it on a small patch of skin to see if it is comfortable after a few moments, and if so add an extra cup of water and prepare to use it, after you have had a hot shower initially, then gradually reduce the hot water until it is still warm but cooler have and washed yourself thoroughly, hair included..lightly towel dry yourself and then whilst your skin pores are open, pour the bottle of vinegar/water, over your head and shoulders and everywhere else (and don't forget to close your eyes) ..a 2 litre bottle of mixture is quite sufficient to do a large adult and another for a child. and leave to a-dry on your body.If infestation is heavy, it can be done 3-4 times a day and should be gone within 24 hours- 36 hours

If all this sounds like a lot of work, it isn't. Doing this every time you have a shower is also helpful for your skin because it gradually alkalines your skin and makes you less suseptable to hosting mites.. They don't like living on skin that isn't acidic.

Before I got sick I used to do this every day and it cured a skin complaint that I'd had for several years and nothing had been able to cure it. But ACV in this proportion did, in just 2 weeks and in over 7 years it has never returned.. but as for bleach? ... great for sterilising bandages and cloth nappies and dog kennels but not on living things..

For some added protection you may wish to buy some solution for scabies, if you don't want to do the ACV everyday.

Go to your chemist or pharmacy and buy 5% Permethrin Cream, and Google scabies lotion online and it will show you step by step how to make the lotion for home use, to keep in case this happens again.

Hope this will be of help to you..

 Re: Banana Peel for Corn

I have a corn on my left little toe, on top. Very painful that I can not wear enclosed shoes. I have been to the doctor. you won't believe this, my options are cut the toe open and file away calcium deposits or cut the toe off!! He never mentions the corn. This is from a doctor! The corn medications over the counter don't work. Heat irritates it so I put ice on it a few times a day. This helps some. I am an ice skater and need this to go away. I will try the banana and lemon.

You might try over the counter vaginal fungal creams on the piles, sometimes the rectal flora (candida )makes the pain worse. Take a pain reliever to get initial nerve pain under control to stop pain messages while the cream takes affect. The spincter muscle needs magnesium to function properly . Espon salt soak might help . Baking soda can quiet things down as a soak.

Posted by Charity (Faithville, Us) on 02/25/2015

To diminish the tags and the darkness, I wash my face in the shower and then put red wine on a cotton pad or ball and coat my entire face including eye area and go to bed, drink plenty of water. I sometimes use msm creams on my skin, daily magnesium use has rehydrated my face as well as the rest of my body. Over 55, extremely dry sensitive skin.

The red wine is amazing, dry flakes of skin come right off as you apply it, and it gives a nice blush glow to my skin as it plumps it up and nourishes it, I coat my neck too. Any cheap brand is fine.

Halo, J. (Leicester, UK)---- you will find more such scurrilous remarks online. The public is waking up which is uncomfortable for some.

OP is becoming very popular and mostly, not on advice from the dental community. This Ayurvedic protocol is thousands of years in practice using only sesame oil or sunflower oil for best utilization. It will remove toxins from the body and save your teeth. Use your discrimination and enjoy the path to good health. Namaste, Om

Hi, Lisa, in my experience, I used multiple remedies but no cure.

What helps tremendously is immersion in cold water after each visit to the loo for at least two minutes. Things to use are sitz bath from Amazon at 16 bucks, roomy bucket in the bath tub or just enough water in the tub to cover the privates. The cool water is toning and healing quite rapidly.

Any pain disappears fast. No need to apply anything but VCO coconut oil is good. This is totally free of expenses, therefore not much talked about. Make sure to dab dry, or dry in the warm bathroom naturally if touch is painful. You'll be as good as new.

Namaste, Om

 Re: Hydrangea Root for Kidney Stones

Posted by Bob (Tampa, Fl) on 02/25/2015

[YEA]  I agree, Hydrangea is the way to go! I had 9 stones spotted by tests, so I always have a bottle on hand for when I first feel it.

I bought the first one in to my Dr's office, a 6mm stone, and everyone wanted to know how I passed it with little pain! I told them Hydrangea and always little, or no pain! The stone seemed smooth, easier to pass, maybe the hydrangea?

I tried that stonebreaker liquid once with Hydragea, that stone came out falling apart, so I would suggest trying that combo with a larger stone. I also try to drink more then 100 oz of non caffeine liquid a day.

Yes, the baking soda is alkalizing, therefore raising your pH which in turn kills bacteria. Freshly squeezed lemon in water every morning has the same effect!

Mother Formed in Pasteurized Apple Cider, Is It Safe?

Wed, 25 Feb 15 15:52:01 -0500
Posted by Sean (Norfolk, Va) on 02/25/2015


So I am familiar with fermentation and dabble with many of the throwback forms of preservation. I have not made Vinegar before but because I lecture on fermentation often, I had a coworker give me a gallon bottle of apple had a floating mother in it so I kept it to see what will happen.

This is a pasteurized apple cider product, and after a couple days out of the fridge it rose to the surface and began developing a white raft of mold.

The question is whether this will turn into vinegar eventually, or make me sick from attempting to consume it weeks down the line.

Has anyone ever allowed the pasteurized apple cider to do its thing without inoculating it (purposefully) with a known mother? Is it safe? worth letting it run its course naturally?

Bill/Ted: Could Meso Platinum Heal Peripheral Neuropathy?

Wed, 25 Feb 15 15:27:16 -0500
Posted by Betsy (San Diego, CA) on 02/25/2015

Opinion from Bill or Ted requested...

A health care person told me that Meso platinum would heal the myelin sheath for my peripheral neuropathy. He said it cured a quadriplegic by taking 1/2 bottle per day and it took over a year. I just was taking one teaspoon/day..I tried it and it seemed like it was making neuropathy worse...Have you ever heard of Meso platinum healing the myelin sheath? Thank you. Was hesitant to put this possible cure on the site for obvious reasons. It might be taken off the market tomorrow.

Well if the bump you were rubbing the coconut oil on disappeared in a few days it was not a bunion. It was either a callous or some other sort of temporary irritation or inflammation. Coconut well has many topical uses but a natural bunionectomy is not one of them
