 Re: Aloe Vera and Cranberry Juice for Bv

Sun, 14 Dec 14 21:22:18 -0500

Posted by Jhlife (Atlanta, Ga) on 12/14/2014

I just wanted to add in regard to BV, I had it a couple of years ago and it was recurrent no matter what my Dr. gave me. Finally, I ask a friend of mines who is well versed with natural cures what I should do and she simply said, "2tbsp of natural aloe vera to 8oz of unsweetened cranberry juice. Not only does it get rid of the BV, I have also found that it works well with balder infections. Pray this helps someone as it did me.

Be careful with hydrogen peroxide if you do it make sure someone professional who knows the procedure. It can alter your liver enzymes. I have done that once. You can do ozone therapy, vitamin c, oxygen therapy, electricity etc

Beth, you can also try Blackstrap Molasses and Sage tea.

Why ACV pills? You can just buy the ACV and take it in multiple ways as described right here on EC.

Turmeric Cured Chronic Hidradenitis Suppurativa

Sun, 14 Dec 14 21:13:41 -0500

Posted by Truffles (Houston, Tx) on 12/14/2014

[YEA]  Where do I begin? I have had Hidradenitis Suppurativa FOR THE LAST 3 years ... It had devastated my life Until I found the magical medicine right in my cabinet which was overlooked for years .. Never too late .. I read posts here and started drinking turmeric water 2 times a day... Results: IT WORKS.. I just wished I had used it earlier on.. I have stage 1.. I tried everything under the sun.. Diet, topical application and birth control pill etc.. It does work temporarily but if you discontinue and if you are not religious about it returns .. What I did for my HS is I just took 3/4-1Tbsp of turmeric and added t to 5-7 oz of warm water and just drank it (gulp it, better that way) for 2 times a day. I continue to do so. I couldn't believe the inflammation is gone, literally flattened, and as others have said here it acts fast and all am left with is scars which I plan to clear out through bio oil and coconut oil ? I have never felt this confident in years . Try it out today. I used organic home grown and home ground turmeric? good luck,

 Re: Curing Multiple Ailments with Jock Itch Spray Containing BHT

Sun, 14 Dec 14 21:10:23 -0500

Posted by Oscar (Syracuse, New York) on 12/14/2014

Dear Anon from St.Charles, MO: What is GH ? Genital Herpes ? If it is then taking BHT internally and externally should help a LOT. Many people have cured this infection with a daily dose of 250mg to 500mg of BHT taken as a capsule internally. Also, BHT dissolved in isopropanol has been shown to be effective as a topical treatment ONLY. Isopronanol is toxic taken internally. You WILL get VERY sick if you drink isopropanol.

NOW DMSO is a very powerful solvent. Has been shown to penetrate even finger and toenails. This can be dangerous. Why not use BHT as prescribed in a relatively safe way and see if it works or not ? There is a VERY good chance it will work.

I have never used DMSO and therefore have NO opinion about it....Oscar

Hep b got over it 41 yrs ago with Horehound drops and round candy cane drops.. there was not a lot of hard candies to choose from. I sucked it slowly maybe 6 a day and continued to do so for 3 months and beyond. Sorry I cannot be more specific.

Hi Oscar,

I am planning to take BHT for GH. But I am thinking of applying a mixture of BHT and DMSO topically at the tail bone area and where the lesions usually break out. As it is well known that the GH virus hides in lower spine area and DMSO is such an excellent carrier, what do you think of this strategy? Do you think it is dangerous to do it this way?

Should I also take it internally in addition to the above mentioned strategy?

I was considering doing a multi-pronged attack (Olive Leaf Extract, Lecithin, L-Lysine, H2O2 + DMSO) at the same time as I am determined to get rid of this virus from my system. But I read you mentioned that BHT does not work well when combined with other treatments. So I am now considering doing BHT alone strictly but I want to see if attacking it at the place where it hides with the help of DMSO might be a good strategy. I'd very much appreciate it if you could please reply with your thoughts on this?

And thanks for all that you have done in helping a lot of sufferers by bringing to light the benefits of BHT.

Treated Toddler with Borax Bath for Hand Foot Mouth Disease

Sun, 14 Dec 14 13:21:57 -0500

Posted by Ruth (West Virginia, US) on 12/14/2014

[YEA]  My 20 month old screamed with discomfort from Hand Foot Mouth Disease for 2 days and could hardly sleep until finally I bathed him with Borax! It was the first thing that actually calmed him down and helped him sleep. For a bath, I poured maybe 1/2 cup in his water. I also poured a couple tablespoons in a bucket of water to soak his hands and feet it in between baths, and applied a strong concentration of borax/water with a washcloth after his bath or soak. I did this whenever he was uncomfortable, 3 or more times a day at first. I also applied peroxide and silver a couple times a day, and after the borax treatment applied coconut oil mixed with an Herbal Savvy product with myrrh in it. I was also giving him every immune boosting supplement I had: colloidal silver, vit. C, zinc, echinacea, etc. Now, on day 3, he still has the blisters but they don't seem to be bothering him at all. I am also giving the rest of the family lots of immune boosting supplements and praying we don't get it too! (By the way, the same treatments worked for chicken pox too! )

Treating Perimenopause with Apple Cider Vinegar Pills

Sun, 14 Dec 14 13:17:24 -0500

Posted by Beth (West Virginia, US) on 12/14/2014

I am in Perimenopause, and I am having the constant bleeding. I am on my 8th week of spotting. I had success with Femaprin for 14 months, then it stopped working. I came in search of something else, and found this website. I see ACV has worked for a lot of you, with the constant non-stop bleeding. For those of you that take the ACV pills, what is the brand, and how many times a day do you take them? I also tried red raspberry tea pills, they did nothing for me. I also tried just the Vitex, and again did not work for me. So I am praying the ACV will work. I tried some in the water, before bed, and it stopped, but through the night I started again, and it was more than spotting. Sorry for TMI. So I don't know if the ACV made it worse, or not. But I am willing to give this a try. I just want to take the pills, but unsure of how many a day to take, and how many times a day. And if there is any unwanted side effects from too much? Thanks for any help.

Kimchi & Other Anti-Yeast Measures for Seborrheic Dermatitis

Sun, 14 Dec 14 13:14:51 -0500

Posted by Joru (Northeast, US) on 12/14/2014

Sebhorreic dermatitis is often caused by an overgrowth of a type of yeast called Malassezia. Malassezia is different from candida and many other common yeasts in that it feeds on lipids (fats) rather than sugar/starch. Also it is a slow-growing, melanin-seeking yeast (melanin is the pigment in our skins which protects us from UV radiation).

In addition to causing scalp issues, it can infect the melanocytes of the skin (sometimes causing white hypopigmentation spots, burning, or itching), the ears (hearing issues), and the eyes (blurry vision).

Overgrowth occurs when conditions favor Malassezia growth over its microbial competitors. Such conditions include prolonged use of antibiotics, use of antifungals to which it is not susceptible, steroids or other immunosuppressants, medications which increase blood lipids; diets high in vegetable oils & animal fats, alcohol (with the possible exceptions of dry red wine and beer).

The best way to get it under control is to take both topics and internal measures that inhibit its growth and add "good flora" that keeps it in check. And to avoid the things that help it grow, when you can.

Some ideas include:

- Kimchi: kimchi is a fermented vegetable product full of "good bacteria" like lactobacilli. Buy the medium spicy kind (available at Whole Foods or elsewhere). Strain it and spray the juice on your scalp. Leave on for several hours or overnight. Repeat for several days or as needed. Eat the remaining part of the kimchi, some each day. This helps build competing flora.

- Increase your intake of veggies that are high in sulfur (so long as you tolerate them ok). These include: onions, garlic, asparagus, hoarseradish (esp. potent), broccoli & other brassica veggies. Also include ginger (antifungal properties).

- Minimize vegetable oils in your diet, including olive oil. Choose lean meats and low-fat dairy to minimize animal fats.

- Sourdough is possibly the best choice in the bread category, because it contains lactobacilli in add'n to some bread yeast. The lactobacilli ("good bacteria") are what give it the sour taste. Get it fresh from a bakery that doesn't use additives and keep it in the freezer.

- If possible, buy your food at farmer's markets rather than supermarkets. Food at the supermarket is almost by definition lacking in good flora. They use additives and irradiation to extend the shelf life. Fresh food from the farmer's market is more nutritious, and it contains live enzymes and more flora. Be sure to choose meat/dairy that were not given antibiotics or homones, as these promote the growth of fungi.

- Include some seafood and seaweed in your diet.

- Eat more fresh herbs and spices ... packed full of good stuff for you, delicious and flavorful, AND they help inhibit the growth of microorganisms.

Topical measures like shampoos can provide temporary relief of symptoms but since they don't affect Malassezia organisms that can be underneath the surface of the skin or scalp, they aren't getting at the root of the problem.

How Do I Use Potassium Carbonate to Treat Folliculitis?

Sun, 14 Dec 14 13:12:00 -0500

Posted by Hdayanan (Bangalore, India) on 12/14/2014

I was reading thru Ted's recommendation of using Potassium Carbonate for treating hair folliculitis. How do you use this?

I bought one from a local chemist which says Potassium Carbonate Anhydrous and a warning stating not to make contact with body parts.

Ted has recommended this over Borax in one of the threads; can someone please give me some direction.

Kind regards

Successful Treatment for Caffeine Addiction

Sun, 14 Dec 14 13:02:45 -0500

Posted by Gokhals (Ca, US) on 12/14/2014

[YEA]  1 tablespoon black strap molasses, 1-2 tbsp coconut oil - add to this boiling spring water with fresh crushed ginger in it. Mix. Drink in lieu of coffee.

I also ate a sublingual B12 (with B6/Folic Acid) yesterday and today.

It was pretty miraculous. No horrible back of the neck headache yesterday. No thumping heart at night. Napped in the afternoon. Slept like a baby at night. Woke up up today with a clear mind. I am hoping I can get through today without caffeine withdrawal as well. I am not sure which of these remedies permitted me to kick caffeine overnight, but one of them did.

The last couple of days I have also been drinking a couple of teaspoons of apple cider vinegar twice a day. If you are trying to kick caffeine, this works, instantaneously. Thank you Sally.

 Re: Trying ACV to Heal Painful Plantar Fibroma

Sun, 14 Dec 14 12:57:03 -0500

Posted by Luis (Beaverton, Or) on 12/14/2014

I have fibromas on both feet. I am treating the most painful one as an experiment.

Application Method:

1- Went to the store to buy a breathable band-aid that encloses the area.

2 - took a piece of cotton ball and got it wet with ACV. Placed the cotton ball over the fibroma and enclosed the cotton ball with the band-aid

Applied the treatment after showering and before going to bed. Removed band-aid in the morning.

Results after 1st night:

1- Significant less pain when touching the Fibroma

2- very small area of skin on top of the fibroma was soft and able to peal off the dead skin.

- After the first night, it feels like it is healing. Will continue treatment for two more nights and report back when have a chance.
