ACV, Oil Pulling, Eliminating Dairy for Blocked Ears

I have suffered from Ear, Nose and Throat issues ever since having a cricket injury to my nose at primary school. Until I was in my twenties I couldn't breathe through my nose at all!!

I have had various operations to cure congestion, swellings and headaches years ago and whilst the last two were fixed up pretty well, I have had debilitating congestion for many years, especially with the change in seasons or during DAMP weather. I have been an avid Apple Cider Vinegar and honey imbiber for years but I recently upped my dosage to twice a day.

I started "pulling" with Coconut oil and then started actually eating the stuff too. I finally gave up DAIRY completely a few months ago and boy what a difference to my congestion all these actions have provoked!

To anybody being driven crazy with blocked ears especially (mine felt as if they were filled with concrete but there was seldom (but occasionally) an excess of wax in them strangely enough), give some, or preferably all, of the above a trial and monitor your reaction.

ALSO, I have not seen on this excellent site any reference to an Ayurvedic trick, whereby you alternate the closing of the nostrils and do the various breathing exercises they recommend. Takes about a week to gain relief but worked a treat for me even before I embarked on my "Earth Care Journey".

I occasionally use the Neti Pot Remedy too. Go well!

Thank you so much, for the lady with the extensive post on washing with baking soda, using organic apple cider vinegar, for toner, and coconut oil for moisture. Also her other tips with borax, etc. The most helpful tips ever, and I am 55, and have studied holistic health for 25 years. I have made a friend in the Philipines, snd she can find these too. God Bless you, Earth Clinic posters, Never stop this site!!!! Forever grateful! :-)

Hello, this is an update to my post from earlier today, I thought it to be more helpful if I include the time frames.

Another very important cure to mention is time, about 9 months to 12 months. I felt hopeless for so long, I visited this site multiple times and tried all the remedies with minimal results, sometimes making the problem worse.

After months of self-treatment, friends and family were pressuring me to see a doctor. I wanted several opinions so I saw multiple doctors, and every one of them told me hot compress, antibiotics and surgery. Hot compress made it swell up and turn very red. Antibiotics just made me sick with no effect. Oral Amoxicillin, then Doxycycline, creams with Erythromycin and several eye drops including Azasite, some $300 eye drops they really try to sell you on. It got so red and inflamed I agreed to have it drained. Again my eye turned purple and swelled for a few days only to return to the red and puffy chalazion from before.

Finally I decided to try the last thing I hadn't, which was nothing. All I did was clean the outside when I took a shower but other than that I didn't touch it. And, wallah! About 3 months of letting it be it went away on its own.

My doctors told me I absolutely needed surgery again and that going away on it's own would be a 1 in a million chance! Apparently they haven't learned about the power of self healing, or they just really wanted my money.

I believe our bodies have an amazing ability to heal themselves if we provide it the right food and exercise.

I can't say how much it sped up recovery time but I've also been vegan for the last 7 months and feel incredible! It's pretty cool stuff I highly recommend looking into it!

Could you tell me how much of the Lugol's you take and what % it is? I want to get off of levo. My hair is falling out, weight gain, and I could sleep forever. Did you go to a naturopath after being on meds?

For grovers disease:

Take salt baths, I use salt, baking soda, and borax. For small flare ups, I make a sea salt solution until it won't dissolve any more salt and apply directly to the outbreaks. This has rescued me.

HI U DEBBIE,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, think long and hard before you use black salve on your nose for a basal cell cancer. It will leave you severely scarred. Instead consider Curaderm. Http://

I have used it twice to cure my skin cancer. It leaves no scaring as black salve does. Yes, black salve works, but you will be scarred.

I feel people interpret scripture differently-

For me, I sense the scripture most quoted in UT circles means don't look outside yourself to be "filled up" for healing, love, etc.but look inside and be filled up from your own inner "well"which has all source of true healing and love- in other words come back home for True healing-spirit- "water of Life"

Although I'm just starting this UT therapy and feel it's very beneficial, I don't feel that scripture is specifically talking about your own urine, but more of a spiritual source.

HI U MAMA TO MANY,,,,,,,,,,,, forgot to mention that the chlorinated and fluoridated water we all drink also depletes the iodine we have to keep our Thyroid in top shape. The fluoride is a waste product of making aluminum . If you research....folks were hired to find a use for this waste product. They did one heck of a job. The public has paid millions over the years to partake of this garbage.

You have to get up before daylight to get ahead of the schemers these days. As P T Branum said years ago, "There's a sucker born every minute."

Best we all eat natural and drink spring water.

I commend you on your contributions to the EC readers.


  Re: DMSO Interaction with Titanium and Platinum Implants

As to DMSO leaching metals from implants, I would say unlikely. I don't say this lightly!

I have a 4-link stent in my LAD heart artery.

It is a "25 year drug eluting" stent.

I use a half to a full tablespoon ORAL DMSO (50%-50% dmso/water) every few days or weeks "as needed" for health reasons. So does my fiancee for her many medical problems that had no success with anything else.

What you MUST DO is use alpha Lipoic Acid 600mg., at least twice a day, during AND AFTER using oral/topical high dose/injected DMSO for, I would suggest, a week minimum.

That is to help detox your blood from the use of DMSO and Lugol's iodine and all the bacteria/virises/fungus/pathogens that DMSO and Lugol's has destroyed. If you don't, you will feel like you got hit by a truck!

Alpha Lipoic acid "takes out the trash" of all these dead nasty creatures etc..

Do it like that and you will feel great.

All evidence based suggestions.

Oh, yes, the Lugol's iodine mix will kill all those pathogens that can cause you back pain and damage. I just told you how to fix it too late unless you had mechanical injuries.

No matter what the reason you had the work done, you have iodine deficiency and a compromised immune system unless you are dosing with Lugol's solution.


Look it up!

You've surgery and almost everybody has "low-grade infections" that are a HUGE, but unknown problem for the general population.

High dose vitamin D, at least a thousand iu of D3 PER 25 lbs. of body weight - MINIMUM and 10mg. (4 drops) Lugol's iodine 2% solution a day, works for most everyone I know to feel more mentally alert, focused, CALM, and inflammation SUPPRESSED/immune system modulated and ARMED.

The research is impressive.

After Taste of Borax Bitter

I wanted to try the Borax, because of yeast infection and living where there is a lot of fluoride in the water. I measured a little more than 1/8 tsp in 2pints of distilled water. Just started so no kind of reaction yet or "if", but does anyone else have a kind of a bitter taste in your mouth after you drink some? Seems to last.

Apple Cider Vinegar Side Effects on 8 Year Old Hemorrhoid, Please Help!

Hi Earth Clinic, I am Chheanglay from Phnom Penh (Cambodia). I am writing to seek your advice in term of Hemorrhoids. I have had this Hemorrhoids for around 7 to 8 years already and it never makes me difficult when sitting but a bit hard in the toilet. So currently, I tried to test or cure it with Korean Apple Vinegar bought from a supper market, currently I have applied it three times already by putting the cotton with Apple Vinegar putting into the anus (internal Hemorrhoids) and it's painful and now the left side of my anal is swelling, so my question is that should I continue to use it or not? anyway, I am afraid it will causes serious effect. Anyway, I haven't gone and see the doctor yet cos. I want to try in a traditional way. So to treat it to original status (to cure it), could you help advise on this? Thank you in advance for your help support!! Chheanglay

I know this is a bit late but maybe it can help someone. If you are on narcotic pain medications it can cause more body oder too.

Start by taking a chlorophyll supplement orally. Gillette Odor Shield soap soap does wonders. It says Mens, but I'm a female, works great for me! Then I have a trick.

I buy the less expensive witch hazel at Wal-Mart, but it doesn't matter which bottle of witch hazel you use. I get the size bottle of a standard size bottle, I think it's 16oz, but not positive on size.

Take 1 bottle of witch hazel and separate it in half. (Put half in a different bottle) In one bottle add 2 or 3 drops of peppermint oil, 2 or 3 drops of tea tree oil, & two or 3 drops of lemongrass oil. Shake that up and use that when you move your bowels and wipe. It also will help you avoid or clear up hemorrhoids if you get them.

In the 2nd bottle add about 4 or 5 drops of peppermint oil, 4 or 5 drops of tea tree oil, 5 or 6 drops of lemon grass oil, and 4 or 5 drops of grapefruit oil. Then add 2 or 3 tablespoons of rubbing alcohol, I like to use the green kind with the minty smell. You can also add lemon juice (2 or 3 tablespoons if you need it a little stronger). After you shower (or if you need a quick freshen up with out bathing) make sure your body is completely dried off. Put some of the tincture mixture on a towel or wash cloth. Blot arm bits and other problem areas that sweat too much. (I wouldn't recommend that on privates, too strong, use 1st mixture on that area if you need.) Then blot dry any left over moisture from the product. Use your antiperspirant/deodorant after application. If you need to make deodorant mix same amounts, except 1 teaspoon rubbing alcohol, 2 teaspoons of witch hazel with 4 or 5 tablespoons of melted coconut oil. Put a plastic sandwich bag in a toilet paper roll. Poor mix into your toilet paper roll and put in freezer or fridge to harden. Store in a cool area. It works great for a natural antiperspirant and a deodorant.

1 more option for a quick hair cleanup is make above mix for the armpit towel blotting, but omit the rubbing alcohol. You can dump it on your scalp and brush it through your hair. It will help with itchy scalp and give your hair a quick temporary clean feel...

I hope this information comes in handy for someone! I live by it! ☺
