[YEA]  I use colloidal silver for conjunctivitis. Use two drops in each eye and blink a little to get it all over the eyelash roots. Twice a day till all is clear.

Tips on Using Diatomaceous Earth

Sat, 20 Dec 14 14:05:16 -0500

Posted by Myway (Wilmington, De) on 12/20/2014

I have been using food grade diatomaceous earth (DE) for quite some time for both myself (supplementation and bug killer) and cats (fleas) but wanted to give everyone a tip on it's use that may make application easier and inexpensive. Purchase a plastic mustard or ketchup bottle from the dollar store (here in US). These bottles are either yellow or red...anyway, they have the small hole at the top. Fill the bottle about 1/4th way with DE.

For Flea Prevention: start at the head of the cat or dog and go to the tail with a line of the DE from the bottle. Rub it in. Do this once a week during flea season. Once a month during off season. DE is not a cure-all in my opinion, it is part of the prevention. Again, you don't want you or your pet breathing this stuff in so, the environment for application should be very calm. Wrestling a cat and trying to apply this stuff would kick up the dust. It is non-toxic but you don't want it in you or your pets lungs. If your cat is a mixed martial arts specialist, try something else. I also use an old rouge brush - dab it on the back of the neck of one cat who comes by occasionally.

For Ants: Try to locate the entry point of your ant infestation and squirt a small amount of DE in the corners of the house where they are coming in. The ants or bugs will die with contact of this stuff. I had ants coming into certain parts of the house...I watched them and figured out where they were coming from. Problem solved. No need for pesticides. Remember, if you apply DE to the outside of the outside, it will have to be reapplied if there is moisture (rain) or very high humidity. It will wash away.

By the way, I am asthmatic - DE has not bothered me at all when used in this manner. If I had carpets, a respiratory compromised person or small children, I personally would not put it on the floors. This is just my opinion.

Good Luck!

I have arthritis in my hands, hips, back, and neck.

For a couple of years now I have been mostly gluten free and dairy free. When I'm not careful I have more pain in my hands. That is where I notice it most. Also peanut and beans also bother me. This diet hasn't cured me, but it does help a lot.

I would leave your son's hair alone. Picky eater might have to do with food absorption or allergies issues. My niece would not swallow food she doesn't like. She will keep it in her mouth until allowed to spit it out. Meantime some nutrients already absorbed .

DO NOT supplement his diet on your own. Find a holistic pediatrician. But if he is healthy otherwise, he might just have thin hair, and nothing is wrong with it.

Good for you! I suffered for the last 5 years, sometimes really bad like a few times an hour and sometimes just a few times a day. They were terrible! I found that cutting down on sugar helped alot. It seems I am through the worst part now, at least I hope so! Hot flashes are miserable!

I have tried lemon juice on my face before but discontinued it because I can't stand the itch of having it on my skin. I tried looking for oil cleansing remedy here in EC for my sensitive, oily skin but the recommendation is to moisturize with hemp oil. Will using oil make my skin more oily?

 Re: Dietary Changes and Apple Cider Vinegar for Psoriasis

I also tried an alkaline diet without any success until I read about FODMAPS. Now I focus on primarily greens for veggies, skip all nightshades, and rarely eat any fruits or veggies containing FODMAPS and my skin is getting better.

I have seen the most relief from the use of ACV and green juices as well as from raw broccoli (which is very high in vitamin E, thus nourishing the skin). As for topically, ACV may burn for a bit, but I refuse to wash it off and it does make things better, however, is not a magic potion (bummer).

Apple Cider Vinegar Removed My Seborrheic Keratosis on My Face

Sat, 20 Dec 14 07:47:04 -0500

Posted by Marinne (Uk) on 12/20/2014

[YEA]  I have to sing the praises of Apple Cider Vinegar. I had a keratosis on my face for years and it really bothered me. My GP told me it was what happens with age and to live with it. Then I discovered this website and tried the ACV treatment. I soaked a piece of cotton wool in neat ACV and taped it on my face overnight. I removed it in the morning. it started to go a bit blacker and chip off and then eventually after about 3 months of doing this daily it disappeared. I felt liberated from my barnacle. I wonder why GPs don't know about these things? When I told my GP, he said there aren't any studies on the use of ACV so he couldn't recommend it even if he knew about it. it annoys me pharmaceutical companies dictate healthcare and limit us. I'm so glad to have found this site!!

Turmeric, Oil of Oregano and Bananas are Effective for Ulcers

Sat, 20 Dec 14 07:44:00 -0500

Posted by Deb (Usa) on 12/20/2014

[YEA]  I have tried them all..literally! The only thing that has worked for me (H-pylori) is the Tumeric and Oil of Oregano. I have juiced, tried the cayenne (which works for awhile), Mastic Gum, Slippery Elm, Cats Claw, Coconut Oil, H2o2, ACV, Manuka honey, and lastly, a "tea" made for ulcers that I cannot mention (very expensive). I found the perfect combination: 1 tablet Tumeric 2x daily; Oil of Oregano 4 drops 3x daily; and eating 3 bananas a day. Look, not everyone's body reacts the same. I will not say that the rest of the methods above don't work! They may indeed work for others and I am glad...but this is my success story.

Dear Anon from MO, Please do NOT overdo this BHT treatment. Some is good does not mean more is better.

You have it right as to BHT taken internally: one 250mg of BHT with a gulp of water one or twice a day.

BUT, I only use the BHT dissolved in isopropanol as discussed every 4 or 5 days. NOT every day. BHT is powerful stuff and PLEASE do NOT over use it. If any adverse reactions occur do back off or use less of this treatment. If any soreness occurs in the treated areas you ARE over doing it....Oscar

 Re: BHT for Viral Hepatitis - Questions for Oscar

Posted by Oscar (Syracuse, New York) on 12/20/2014

Dear Alan from Charleston: From what you have stated, the BHT has at best got this hepatitis infection in check or not getting worse for now. I know from speaking with many the OLD interferon+ribaviron+whatever treatments did NOT work. BUT, the NEW treatments your doctor is discussing with you have a VERY impressive track record.

I am glad you are holding your own with the BHT and feeling better. But that could change for the worse. The NEW drugs are much more safe and effective than the old treatments.

I agree with your doctor. It is time to try the new drugs NOW available. As expensive as they are, they do have very impressive results. Can you get some help from Medicare or whatever as to paying for said treatments? As sick as you are I do hope so. You gave the BHT a sincere try with less than the desired results.

In my opinion it is time to give the NEW drugs a try. Your very life is at stake here. You would seem a good candidate for said NEW treatments. Your doctor should be aware of any and all assistance available as far as paying for said new treatments....Oscar

I tried the ACV in water a couple days, and actually stopped for a whole day, but then the next day I started bleeding again, but I didn't drink as much the day prior so that could be why. I stopped it, until I received the ACV (NOW brand) pills in the mail today, I took 4 so far it hasn't stopped, or slowed down, I just hope it works with the pills, as I hate drinking the ACV in the water. Thank you both for answering my questions. I will look for the book. Merry Christmas!

 Re: Using Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth on Pets

Posted by Peggy (Delbarton, WV US) on 12/20/2014

[YEA]  I was reading all the comments. I have used FOOD GRADE diatomaceous earth on all my dogs and cat for years. It eliminates worms, and handles the fleas. During the worst season for fleas I use it around my doors. I only use it on their wet food, not dry and just a pinch once a month. I have yet to see any ill effects from the use of Food Grade DE. Pool Grade is very dangerous for humans and animals, make certain you purchase Food Grade, I get mine at Tractor Supply.

 Re: Silent Reflux Linked to Sleep Apnea

Sat, 20 Dec 14 07:13:57 -0500

Posted by Katerose (Minnesota, US) on 12/20/2014

I too have Laryngopharyngeal Reflux. I went to an Ear Nose and Throat specialist about 4-5 years ago due to the fact that I was losing my voice. Constant dripping of the nose and coughing all the time. Nexium seemed to work, but lately I am coughing more. I found out in the spring that I have sleep apnea too. Doing research, I found that the LPR can cause the apnea. I was waking up in the middle of the night having coughing fits. Finally went to a doctor who sent me in for a sleep study and now sleep peacefully!
