Phillippa, your story is incredible! Congratulations, and thank you for continuing to update everyone on your progress. I am not sure if I am dealing with fibroids or not (family history is against me on this one), but it has been helpful for me to read about how people manage their symptoms as I wait to get scheduled for a gyno appointment.

 Re: Gallbladder Cleanse for Gallstones

A well know nND in the Seattle area sent samples of the "gallstones" that passed after a cleanse to a lab. He had been recommending them to patients, and was curious. All they are is saponified oil, so he stopped recommending them.

Having passes a gall crystal that ended up blocking the bile duct causing pancreatitis and a trip to the ER, I would never do one of these cleanses. The ducts are too small to pass most gallstones without incident.

 Constipation Remedies

I use coconut capsules for constipation. I have cleared everything and don't seem to have any problems anymore. Also, garlic capsules and tumeric capsules work to help clear this. Eat an apple every night. It's fall and we're eating caramel apples (I know, sugar) but it's one way to eat them and enjoy them a bit. Try Ted's alkalyzing remedy--juice of one lemon or lime add 1/2 tsp. (man) 1/4 tsp. (woman) aluminum-free baking soda and stir until the fizz quits. Add water to make it 1/2 glass. Use a plastic spoon to stir this--don't add any metals to the mix. Drink first thing in the a.m. and last thing in the p.m.

This will probably hand you a huge laugh. The doctors told me to avoid rice with pre-diabetes. I eat cocoa krispies about a couple times a week. They make me go quite regularly. I use lactose-free milk. Not sure if this will work for everyone. I don't know why this would be bad, as they give babies rice cereal first when they begin to eat.

Lactose-free milk is also good for people with prostate problems (you don't have to get up so often in the middle of the night).

Apple Cider Vinegar, Tea Tree Oil for Seb Derm

Sat, 25 Oct 14 07:10:10 -0500

Posted by Melissa (Oakland, Ca) on 10/24/2014

[YEA]  I have struggled with on-going seborrheic dermatitis and perioral dermatitis on my face and had tried many topicals prior to finding this natural, "miracle" treatment of: 1 part apple cider vinegar to 1 part water (with a few drops of tea tree oil). I tell you- improvement with this remedy is noticeably quick!

In the past, I had tried sulfur soaps, anti-fungal creams, antibiotic rounds of minocycline (2 rounds of 6 months! Prescribed by my dermatologist! ) before finding the earth clinic's suggestion. Nothing has worked better! And, nothing has been cheaper and done less harm to my body!

My seborrheic dermatitis and perioral dermatitis is best managed (notice: I did not say cured) by keeping what I put on my face to a minimum- eliminating most makeup, cleansers, lotions, sunscreens. I only use what I absolutely need. My routine is to wash my face in the morning and at night with a mild cleanser (currently "Desert Essence Gentle Nourishing Organic Cleanser") and then splash the ACV/water/tea tree oil combo on after. I don't use a moisturizer every day but when my face feels dry, I lightly pat my face with a drop of extra virgin organic olive oil (from Trader Joes).

For me, this treatment has worked like a charm. I notice my skin gets triggered/I get a flare up with sweaty skin (after a workout), too much sun, or when I use too many products on my face. So, I keep this in mind and know what to do to keep my symptoms at Bay and what to do when I get a flare up!

I hope this helps people reading this because when my flare ups were at their worst, I didn't think anything was going to help.

Remember: Less is MORE!

I know Chlorella supplements and cilantro will detox some metals. Try looking up a recipe for cilantro pesto. Mine is pretty basic, although I don't remember exact measurements. But it is walnuts, olive oil, cilantro and garlic in the food processor. Just pull those ingredients' measurements out of a recipe with more ingredients. Hope that helps.

 Re: Questions on Remedies for Ovarian Cysts

Fri, 24 Oct 14 21:53:23 -0500

Hi Bluessky777...It's been found through research that cysts can generally caused through lack of iodine and other minerals in the diet. Too much calcium, through excess calcium(dairy) in the diet, is also usually a factor. Excess bromine and fluorine(from treated water, toothpaste) in the body is another one that reduces iodine in the body.

Therefore taking adequate amounts of lugols iodine everyday will help to shrink the ovarian cyst. Supplementing iodine at the correct daily dosage will also get rid of breast cysts in about 3 months.

I would just take the Iodine and Alkalizing remedies exactly as shown in the document link below. You will need to take at least 8 drops of LI a day(more if you are able to) in 4 smaller split doses every day. I would also advise taking the full Iodine Protocol (take the advised dosages of Selenium, Zinc, Magnesium, B vitamins, Vitamin C and higher dose Niacin) if you can and as advised in the document. I would also use the Alkalizing protocol(which is also fully described in the document) every day as well. See the document here for the remedies:

Iodine and Alkalizing Protocols

Keep taking the other protocols that you are taking now as well.

Here is where you can buy Lugol's Iodine in the Philippines(Manila):

Generics King Pharmacy
San Francisco
930-G Del Monte Ave,
SFDM, 1104 Quezon City,

Tel: 632-4116692

Light Infinity Wellness Center
414-1028 83 West Avenue near Baler St.
Quezon City

if you do buy LI from these sources then please don't mention the fact that you will be supplementing LI -- I admitted this to one of the above sellers when I went and they nearly didn't sell LI to me because the alternative doctors there think its a poison. I've been taking LI everyday at 8 drops a day for the last 8 years and I'm 64 y o and have never felt so well. Just tell the seller that you are buying the iodine for your cat, dog or budgie and there will be less hassles for you.

You can buy the Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda as Arm & Hammer brand is fine) and use that for alkalizing.

You can buy all the other minerals and vitamins needed from Healthy Options(reasonable quality, much cheaper than GNC) in SM Malls.

Debbie (Ontario, CA)---

When dealing with abscesses as in my case, I usually get chamomile tea to heal. So for the mouth, pain and open wounds, , gently keep the chamomile in the mouth, replenishing with more warm tea. This should help with healing. Do several times for a few minutes.

You will be well.

Namaste, Om

Hi Alice...In answer to your question: DMSO is Dimethylsulfoxide -- and its only the purity that varies according to the grade of the product. You can buy DMSO in UK from the following sources. See links:

DMSO 99 Website

Ebay DMSO(selling DMSO UK)

Both DMSO products from these website sources are pharma grade(99.98% pure).

 Be Aware of Allergens That May Trigger Problem

Fri, 24 Oct 14 19:27:03 -0500

Posted by Deborah (Newark, NJ) on 10/24/2014

I am currently experiencing terrible vaginal itch. I've suffered from this condition for many years on and off. It recurs a few times a year, however, this time I think I know for sure that I am experiencing an allergic reaction to several things that I am eating--primarily citrus, cinnamon and rancid oils. There isn't much I can do about the itch except wait it out as the allergens work themselves out of my system. I tried drinking nettle tea and that helps a little. But I made the mistake of putting a teabag of sleepytime tea in the mix only to have the itch flair up again. Then I read the ingredients and realized that one of the ingredients is orange blossoms! I hadn't thought about the flowers being a problem too. So the moral of this story is to be very careful to figure out what kind of allergens are causing you a problem.

 Suggestions for Weaning Off Prednisone

Fri, 24 Oct 14 19:09:58 -0500

Posted by Bill (San Fernando, Philippines) on 10/24/2014

Hi Brent...You can wean yourself off prednisone by supplementing molybdenum, pantethine and pantathenic acid(vitamin B5) which will give you the same benefits as prednisone without its dangerous side-effects. Here are some extracts from the research:

Candida, according to antibody studies done at the Atkins Center, is involved in more than 80 percent of all cases of Crohn's and Colitis.

And for autoimmune problems, Dr. Atkins states,

" For all conditions that a doctor might prescribe prednisone --allergies, asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, lupus, and other autoimmune diseases, pantethine can be safely, effectively substituted. I routinely use it for all of those conditions on hundreds of my patients, and it's valuable in weaning them off steroidal drugs, or certainly in allowing a lower dose...."

By upping body levels of a body enzyme, pantethine counteracts brain fog, certain allergic sensitivities, and some consequences of alcoholism. (And here it is --) ... In people with candidiasis, the enzyme fights off a toxic byproduct called acetaldehyde, which is thought to cause brain fog, often-suffered but rarely diagnosed.... Acetaldehyde also is suspected of being responsible for some symptoms of alcoholism, including alcoholic heart muscle disease. The pantethine-stimulated enzyme also detoxifies formaldehyde, an all too frequent offender for chemically sensitive individuals."

In summary, Dr. Atkins is saying that Pantethine, without toxic consequences, can reduce cholesterol, counteract oxidation, stimulate the growth of friendly bacteria, and fight allergies, inflammation, autoimmune disruptions, and alcoholism.

In case you wondered, Dr. Cooter and Dr. Schmtt suggest 300 micrograms of Molybdenum in three divided doses per day, and further suggests staying on it for at least 4 months.. Dr. Atkins suggests 450 to 900 miligrams daily of Pantethine with an equal amount of Pantethenic Acid.


I would also urge you to read all the research thoroughly from the link.

Please also take note from the above research link that 80% of people with Crohn's and Colitis will have serious candida issues as well. So if you do have candida then your problems will be compounded and you will have to cure that as well. See Candida cures in the Ailments section of EC.

You should be able to easily purchase Pantethine, Pantethenic Acid and Molybdenum at any health store or from internet vendors.

HI U REBEL, , , , , , , boy howdy, that's a really good moniker. I go by ROBERT HENRY because as a youth, when my mom got the ass at me, she called me by my double name. Now, I figure all have the ass at me so I use that as my pen name.

I found a web site that gives the formula for a patented solution of GSE for HVAC systems, and if I take the time then I can make this. My problem is that at 78 , I am sho nuff on the shady side of the mountain and don't have time to mess around. It's sheet or git off the pot. "Come clean me, Momma".

As you know GSE is a natural fungicide and we use it to preserve our garden veggies. The microbiologist immigrant that came up with this while working for the state of Fla trying to get their produce to market in good shape. It is quite an interesting story.

Reb, what I have read is that 90% of our sinus problems is due to mold one way or the other. I wrote this Mold Ditty because most on this site want to cure their symptoms and that is not a fix. You have to get after the root cause. You are on the right trail, but I am searching also. Sorry, I can't give you a solution.

HI U Mmsg, , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Don't look at me. I explained my experience with eggplant. The only experience with an eggplant concoction that I made and used was to remove the age spots on my arms. I just half-assed it, but my arms looked much better.

When I had a sho nuff skin cancer, then I bought the Curaderm from the internet. It worked in just a few weeks. This was after my doctor removed it and the pathologist said he got it all. BS, BS, BS. It came back PDQ and raging....big and black.

I am not going to tell you what to do. But if I have another skin cancer then I will use Curaderm made my a microbiologist and not something I did in my wife's kitchen.

I thank you for calling me out, but don't put me in the league with the really bright folks on this site. I am just a smart ass educated Redneck that reads a lot and tells a pretty good story.

[YEA]  Applying a well kept urine at a wounded spot quickens the healing process. Besides the instant pain due to wound's contact with the urine, a wonderful experience follows there after which soothes and calms down all the pain experience! For a number of years, this has been my experience! What a wonderful medication!
