S: Try taking 350mg BHT once a day and fallow 1hr later with either one capsule of Echinacea Extract or St John'sWort Extract. If this doesn't achieve complete remission try doing this 2x per day. You may also consider taking 1000mg Lysine per day as this amino acid helps the immune system.

If you don't experience an increase in the viral numbers this is enough to go on living and not worrying about it, but if the above treatment doesn't get & keep the numbers low, then you will need to do some whole body detox & cleanses so to get your immune function back to normal.

Zinc deficiency is common in cases of chronic infections so consider supplementing Zinc/Copper 50mg/1mg per day away from fiber foods.

Hi Kais, Your experience was interesting. I have persisted with Tea Tree Oil for the same problem as yours and did so consistently every night before bed time for three months. It worked only after three months. What I should have done all along was to MAKE SURE that the little crevices on either side of the big toes, where the nail meets the flesh, got a proper drying after showering every time and used a separate towel solely for that purpose.. It's all very well to do what Mummy told you to do all those years ago and "Remember to dry between your toes Darling! " but she should have cautioned you to dry around the nails also I reckon. Fungus is so difficult to fix and seemingly takes forever. An ounce of prevention is worth a ton of cure as Grandpa used to say. In addition, a dedicated tooth brush (preferably not the one you use for teeth cleaning! ) could be gainfully employed to work those (soft) bristles into those hard to reach cracks and clean them out as the fungus loosens its grip. A bit of Bicarb. would not go amiss too I reckon. I should mention that I also do Coconut Oil Pulling and ingesting, so that may have helped too. However, the Tea Tree Oil came up trumps once again in this instance. Hurray!

Cheers, Michael

Tea Tree Oil for Scalp Psoriasis or Itchy, Flaky Scalp

Tea tree oil for scalp psoriasis or itchy, flaky scalp:

I mixed about 8-10 drops of tea tree oil with about a tablespoon of coconut oil and massage it into my scalp, leaving it on for several hours or overnight, then wash out. It really helps control the itching and flaking! I do this about once a week to keep it under control. I wonder if I did it more often or daily, if it would cure the problem, but I haven't tried.

Is there any more current information that you all have found helpful? I've read all the posts and am so grateful for some options to try that are natural and harmless. I'm 46 and probably started when I was 10-12, I don't remember. I've never sought treatment as all the research I have done seems to take a psychiatric route and that has never felt right to me. Reading today about the possibility of a fungus, candida, or chemical imbalance problem really makes more sense to me as the intensity comes and goes. Recently I've had some serious episodes, so much so that my hair stylist commented and I had to create a lie. These periods cause me to feel horrible about myself but I really believe there is a reasonable cause and a viable, natural solution. Thank you to all who posted thus far and to any current posts that you all create. Blessings to all my beautiful partners on this challenging journey.

I have had it for 3 years. For intense itching I use desitin maximum strength, wear white cotton panties with unscented panty liners, and drink organic apple cider vinegar all natural drink, ( found at health food stores and festival food store) 8 ounces 3 times a week. Also when I followed a gluten free diet and no artificial sweeteners my LS was gone. Now I restarted the gluten free diet and no aspartame.

Cayenne Pepper Stops Esophageal Spasms

I occasionally have esophageal spasms associated with acid reflux. Anyone who has experienced their esophagus suddenly going into spasms knows what an incredibly painful phenomenon it is; it also can be scary since it somewhat mimics cardiac chest pain. I have found no pattern as to when it happens, no particular foods to blame. (In fact, sometimes it happens on an empty stomach.)

So, cayenne pepper: I have found that cayenne pepper shuts this down - completely, and usually within a matter of seconds. I place a pinch of cayenne - sometimes even half a teaspoon or so - on the back of my tongue, let it sit there for a second and swallow very gradually. (Hard to explain but I hope that's clear! ) I just let it slowly go down my throat. Of course, this will make you cough like crazy, so have something to drink handy.

I'm not a doctor nor do I play one on TV (for those old enough to get that joke) and there may well be a number of different causes for esophageal spasm, so I can't vouch for this cure for everyone. But for me, it's so effective, simple, and cheap that I wanted to share with others who suffer this very painful condition and might be on the prescription drug pinwheel, trying one thing after another that may not work or may cause side effects. Gather your courage and give this a shot!

Apple Cider Vinegar for Viral Conjunctivitis

Having read through these pages a week ago and then again today I will offer a different opinion to what a lot of other people have said here. In particular I am wary of claims here that conjunctivits had been cured in "hours or days" due to the use of ACV.

I am on day 14 of acute keratoconjunctivitis (this is the viral version). It is now (very) slowly improving and the symptoms are starting to go away including the red eyes. I was told by the ophthalmologist that it will take a number of weeks for me to fully recover and as it is a virus like the common cold there is no cure for it, is is just a case of waiting for it to run it's course whilst trying to maintain comfort as much as possible.

Anyway, one week ago ago when my conjunctivitis was in full swing and I was more naive about such matters... I found this site and the claims that ACV with the mother was having positive effects on dealing with conjunctivitis. With an open mind I obtained a bottle and used it diluted but still with a bit of a sting, on my eyes, 3 - 4 times a day. I repeated this for about 5 - 6 days with the aim of the reduction of the red eye symptons and of some pain in my eyes. After a number of days it became obvious the ACV was not doing anything positive and so having seen no effect whatsoever I stopped use.

Thinking about it now I am not sure from a biological / medicine point of view what specifically in ACV is supposed to do to be effective against conjunctivitis. I am assuming its antibacterial proerties are considered to have a role in this... but would something with antibacterial properties help kill a virus?? I am aware of the very real health benefits of plants and so called alternative medicines and I will use them 100% every time in favour of modern medicine IF they provide me with benefits. However of all these people claiming ACV works, they can't all be wrong ... so I guess what works for one particular set of symptoms will not work for another similar but different set of symptons.

If you have conjunctivits I would suggest that you go and insist on seeing an OPHTHALMOLOGIST and insist on getting your eyes checked properly. In my case I first went to see a nurse at my local doctor surgery who was dismissive and not especially helpful. Then two days later when the symptons were significantly worse I went to see a doctor. The doctor was slightly more helpful but did not have the specialist tools or knowledge to make a particularly useful diagnosis other than a general comment about using eyedrops and it will go away after a few days.

It was only after I saw an ophthalmologist at the eye casualty and quite detailed study of my eyes that I was properly diagnosed with the problem that was one of the reasons I tried the ACV solution in the first place: I had as part of the conjunctivitis a "pseudomembrane" develop on all 4 of my inner lids and it was this that was causing excruciating pain when my eyes were closed for more than a few seconds. Anasthetic was dripped into my lids and each of these 4 pseudomembranes was surgically removed there and then. I was told to continue using liquid gel tablets as well as some anti viral eyedrops which I have already been using... I am told this will help with the keeping eyes closed and therefore sleeping, the other symptons of conjunctivitis will improve over time.

So.. that is my story. Feel free to try ACV anyway, it might work for you, it might not. Maybe you don't even have conjunctivitis after all, just a couple of the symptoms of it!

Coconut Oil for Nail Fungus

Initially I was skeptical that coconut oil can cure toe fungus. For thirty years my left big toe was infected with fungus. The nail was very thick and painful to cut. I started putting coconut oil on my infected toe about six months ago. I applied the oil at least twice daily. About a month ago, the old nail started to die and a clear nail was growing. I started cutting the old nail with no pain and now the old nail is almost gone. I am waiting for the remaining old nail to separate from the new nail. Coconut oil does work for the treatment of toe fungus. I am continuing the treatment by applying oil two to three times daily. I highly recommend this treatment. By the way the treatment worked on the large toe. I have two small toes with fungus and I am trying to treat them with coconut oil. I hope I can succeed with the small toes.

Hi everybody. I'm 65. Ten years ago all of my upper teeth were hurting. Dentist told me to yank them all and get dentures. $3 to $4 thousand smackers! The big hunt for a natural cure began. Found HP. Brushed my teeth with a cap full of 3% two times a day for 2 days. Let it foam for about 5 minutes. Pain free after that. Here I am 10 years later with all of those teeth that the dentist told me to yank except one. I still brush with HP once a week. My teeth are doing GREAT! Thanx for the opportunity to help someone else. - Bill

M: First remedy you should try is soaking in a very warm bath with 1/4 cup Epsom Salts & 1/4 cup Borax 2x wk. Next remedy is use Magnet Therapy on affected bones or joints. The stronger the Magnet the better. Next remedy is the Zapper. You can purchase these online particularly at Amazon or Ebay. For general use I recommend the Hulda Clark Extreme Zapper Z4eX. Fallowing Zapping you can also apply Tea Tree Oil or SolonPas to further eradicate infection and hopefully, in time, kill it altogether.

Echinacea Tea, Lemon Vinegar to Stop Undercooked Chicken Reaction

I needed some sort of treatment after having eaten underdone chicken at a restaurant and wanted to stop what ever was coming towards me in its tracks. I boiled enough water for two cups of tea and steeped Echinacea tea bags in them for 5 minutes. You can get this type of tea at any store that sells medicinal teas (Vitamin World, Home Goods, etc.). I added a teaspoon of lemon vinegar to each cup. I find lemon vinegar at Asian-variety supermarkets. I added a tablespoon of honey to each and mixed. I drank this down quickly and it stopped my cramps immediately. The mixture created some heat internally (around my stomach area), which quickly subsided about 5-10 minutes later. I did not have any cramps, bloating, discomfort, or liquid stool for the night and the next couple of days.

I have undiagnosed symptoms of irritable bowels and go to the bathroom very frequently throughout the day either due to food or stress. I have a few food allergies and am sensitive to many food items. I also get cramps almost daily after eating. I am always trying to look for ways other than staying away from these problematic foods, to stop the pain part of my issue. Therefore, it is very important that I do not consume raw or rare meat, since even rare meat gets me sick.

Yes, you sound a lot like me. It's a cycle. Restless legs definitely causes anxiety because you can't sleep. Know for sure the antidepressant medications can definitely cause restless legs to be much worse. Do some research on the one that you're taking.

What really works for me is also compression on my legs. You must try compression stockings. They are primarily for circulation however the pressure does definitely ease the restless legs. I'm not saying it will take it completely away but help drastically. You can look them up online and try at least 30 to 40 mm of pressure. I use 40 to 50 and they work really well. They're a little difficult to get on but definitely worth it.

It is better to take Mung Bean Soaked Fermented water in the morning on empty stomach. At that time, there will no stomach acid in the digestive system since some probiotic strains may not survive in stomach acid.
