Hi Bill,

Thank you for helping me figure out this puzzle! This is so exciting.

Chlorella-- How much chlorella do people take as they slowly titrate up their cilantro? Or which kind of chlorella? I was thinking of powder. Do people take the chlorella first and wait a half hour and then dose the cilantro?


I think my first priority is to save up and find a doc to do an OAT and check methylation. So I know what to take...

and Oh boy I think I'm in for some die-off fun as yesterday, was day 2 back on "B-Right" by Jarrow a B multi formula with 400 mgs of methyl folate and a small dose of methyl B-12. (since I'm starting back up on methylators I read it's best to go slowly.) I upped my iosol dosage to the equivalent of 2 drops of Luggols and I got "pleanty" of die-off! (I was confident to try this amount b/c I had given myself 15-20 drops of this weaker form two years ago for weeks and felt so much better).

So then I tried 3 drops of that cilantro tincture and a funny thing happened. My herxing calmed down. But I do feel brain brighter today with more iodine and tyrosine!

Chanca Piedra-- Can take just the Chanca Piedra for Both my liver support and kidney? I see some inexpensive tea on Amazon - I'm tempted over the pricey stuff. Any brand recs? New World Botanicals is pricey....

Mag chloride - Ok, I will go back to making your formula. And I can take it internally too? The magnesium chloride flakes I have are from "the ancient Zechstein seabed" haha. Last week I thought if I filled a bottle 70% with mag chloride and 30% with water, then I'd get a 70% solution? but maybe that is incorrect...

For the last 3 years I have repleted on magnesium and taken up to 1200 mgs of magnesium. (I read about Levoquin depleting and damaging magnesium uptake.)

Potassium-- For the last 3 months I've been trying that salt made with potassium chloride and getting 350 mgs or 1/8th of a tsp a day or more from that. Since I've been low sugar for most of the last 7 years where am I getting much potassium w/out fruits? I figure I must be low. Anyway, I think it helps my leg cramps. The potassium bicarb was too funky on my gut 2 years ago, so maybe I can try that on month two in a carbicarb? But I also see it was recommended in a pituitary axis protocol - 1/8th tsp...

Mitochondria, Methyl Blue, and antioxidants -- 5 years ago my antioxidant levels were low. My CoQ10 and B5 were low and this was with a "meh" Spectracell blood test. I think I read on one of Ted's posts ages ago that a couple drops of methyl blue a day or every other day would help my mitchondrial system? Is it an antioxidant?

also I don't take a multivitamin. So I read I need to get more A (to heal the gut lining) and E. I notice when I take CoQ10 I feel really good.

Iron-- I have heard that candida takes up the iron that you eat. There is a supplement that supposedly prevents this but I have not tried it. I think that candida is eating the iron I consume and I have low iron. I also have had heavy periods for years.

Pituitary, HGH, T3

I'm investigating a pituitary axis issue. Tomorrow I am seeing an nurse practitioner who is really good and I'm going to ask her to look at my hormones. Last year my cortisol, T3, HGH tested low. I learned that both T3 and HGH need liver enzymes for their conversion and use by the body. I don't know where the problem is but I support my adrenals. I found that taking B5 with B6 (like the Metagenics adrenal formula) with L-Tyrosine and Iodine really helped.

Since I have had more hair growth and have had pms for decades (although it's now much better with high mag, zinc and 5-Htp dosing these last few years) I'm wondering if I'm low estrogen. I do take up to 1T of MSM a day and I read that will grow hair!

I got a scan which showed I had a squished pituitary which is fairly common. I had a mild concussion 11 years ago. So, I really hope this hasn't been causing my asthma, fatigue, headaches, carpal and dizzyness. Maybe I should be detoxing it of Flourides? I was shocked that Boulder (health capital of the US) had been flouridating our water! I had no idea. My charcoal filtration useless... That means I've been drinking flouridated water for decades. Brilliant.

My goal is to recheck my T3 and HGH levels after 6 months on Nystatin or a candida protocol and see if they've normalized before trying something like armour. I'm realizing that I don't know what the correct levels should be. Doc said T3 is "a little low". We'll see if he's using a relevant reference range...

Would sodium thiosulfate be smart? Or too much right now. I just took 6 drops.

Acidity - -

I've been eating a lot of meat and this summer have cut down because of the acid blood factor that you talk about. Also I've done a couple bottles of cranberry powder to keep uti's at bay. I think you would advise to get off this?

Ferments, ACV, Brewers yeast -- I have not eaten any vinegar or ferments but I read mixed information so I'm confused! For your protocols ACV is ok but Only with BS? Is that correct? A friend said she had great success with ACV enemas. But I'm hesitant to try. I think I will do H202 enemas in distilled water first.

Have you heard that brewers' yeast supposedly eats candida? but I've been too scared to try it

Colostrum-- Wow this colostrum looks great. Do you think if I get it I really need to do the 1T 2x rec for leaky gut or not bother Or or if the 2 tsp 2x would be worthwhile... hmmm

Until I can get colostrum... one method I used 5 years ago to boost my immunity and break the cycle of frequent colds was 6 weeks on echinacea tea and i1 week off. I stopped only because I wasn't sure if the echinacea would kill the good bacteria in my gut.

Forever11, Have you ever had blood work done to see if you have a blood infection? Many years ago my ex-husband developed something similar on his hiney. He needed to have surgery for a non-related issue and I mentioned these nasty, pussy, nearly green, explosive not pimples or boils either. He had my X's blood cultured and a blood specialist prescribed three different strong antibiotics for him, stating that he had an infection in his blood. I wish I had asked him more at the time but I won't waste time looking back. There were no other symptoms, just the nasties. His hiney cleared up but he did go on to develop diabetes later in life. I am not sure if they aren't related or at least a precursor! Good luck to you~*~

Dried Mango for Angular Cheilitis

Fri, 04 Sep 15 08:35:25 -0500
Posted by Penny (Oregon) on 09/03/2015

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  My first response is to say that there is absolutely nothing simple about AC else we wouldn't need these chat rooms. I like the idea of flax seed and the MSM.

I am not cured but I accidentally came upon something that helps with the worst of the symptoms, the cracks and sores, but does not stop the sloughing at the corners of the mouth nearly to my chin and I am also convinced the same sloughing around my nose. My husband brought home some dried fruit, which I was unfamiliar with but immediately fell in love with - so delicious! It is dried Mango from the Phillipines. If I eat half a dozen pieces daily the sores are gone. Now if I can just get rid of the skin sloughing! I am not sure which ingredient in the dried Mango helps, but I suspect it is at least in part to the Vit A. Now I am off to try the MSM and flax seed which is such a lovely assist and I do not mind using it at all.

I have another embarrassing symptom (sounds worse than it looks) that I am curious if anybody else has because I think it is related to the AC. In the nares of my nose I get hundreds of white heads, not pus, just white heads. If I run the side of the tweezers with a tiny amount of pressure, they just explode! I have always had a few over the years, but it seems if the AC is active so are they. ( no it isn't visible! ) Anybody else experience this? To treat this, I have been using Frankincense oil applied directly to the inside of my nose and it seems to help significantly, & no I do not use a carrier oil just because I want the full impact and it doesn't burn, sting or blister! I have had AC for nearly 15 years, tried many remedies, this is not a remedy, but it keeps the discomfort and sores at bay. So eat your Mango~

Dear Lucena,

Is it possible that whatever you are using to wash your hands or dishes is the cause?

Did you have this problem before you were pregnant?

A salve made with comfrey, calendula, and/or plantain may help, if you could find it locally. Or if you would have access to any of those herbs, I could tell you how to make a salve for eczema.

[YEA]  I started using ACV and raw honey 2 weeks ago, but only because someone said that it was good for you. I never gave it a thought about how it would help me. I have been taking Flomax for about 2 years now, but today, I have not taken a Flomax for two days, and I don't need flomax now. Thanks to the ACV and Raw Local Honey.

As an added benefit, my Ohio River Valley allergies have all but gone away. Yea

Turpentine in the Nose for Viruses

Thu, 03 Sep 15 15:50:35 -0500
Posted by Maryellen (Loveland, Ohio) on 09/03/2015

[BETTER BUT WITH SIDE EFFECTS]  Turpentine in the Nose:

Use with caution and learn from my experience. I have used the turpentine in my sinus for sometime now. I slightly dilute it with water in the palm of my hand and standing up I snuff it into my sinus. It clears out any mucus and I believe it is even caring for the brain because evidently it penetrates the blood brain barrier; Therefore the biofilm melting property is quite health promoting.

Caution: I suspected Cytomegelo Virus (a herpes which can lead to Kaposi's Sarcoma ( it is considered incurable due to the biofilm coating)) I am interested in mechanizing a cure.

While lying down on my side I chose to snuff a single drop of the diamond G turpentine into my nostril. If it had not been so painful, it would have been comical. The turpentine entered my sinus but also the sinus above my eye.

Instantly; The mucus drainage was profound! Sneezing violent. Entire area around my eye was bright red as well as the eye. The deep cleansing produced sinus pain and some swelling of tissues. Copious water consumption was required to cope with the fluid transfer mechanism. (Pure water consumption in copious amounts is required in order to 'push out - replace' the contaminated fluids)

24 hours later, the left side of my head feels better than decades before now.

Will I do it again? ABSOLUTELY. I will DILUTE the turpentine, lay on the opposite side and smile as I visualize the destruction of all possible viruses. Probably in the future I will inhale the fumes from time to time. ME

Chanca Piedra for Bone Spurs

A friend told me that she tried chanca piedra for a foot bone spur and, within 2 months, the bone spur completely dissolved. Is this herb the answer to quickly dissolving a foot bone spur I have, which is painless but unsightly and makes it very difficult to wear a left shoe properly because of this bone spur?

I would greatly appreciate any thoughts on this subject. Thank you.

Sinus Infection Helped with Saline and Hydrogen Peroxide

Thu, 03 Sep 15 15:31:22 -0500
Posted by Robb (Los Angeles, Ca) on 09/02/2015

[YEA]  Wow, when I first read about using peroxide for sinus infections I laughed. Having been operated on 4 times, the Caldwell Luc is an uncomfortable procedure and your face swells like a balloon.

So, I still get sinus infections but at least I can breathe out my nostrils! That is what the operations did.

So, yesterday, after going thru another 110 days for antibiotics which is the MD's answer, I followed the "saline filtered water - with 3:1 water to 3% peroxide.

My head began clearing within an hour and this am, I could breathe and actually smell again, somewhat!!! I am going to continue for 4 days and see if it continues.

Remember it is key to use filtered water, or boiled water. There is some bacteria - especially in the South, that has been fatal, when inhaled.

Great site and articles!!!! Thanks much, Robb

  Re: B-12 for Sciatica

Get the B-12 sublingual tablets at Whole Foods. 2000 mcg (micrograms). They're cherry-flavored. I was taking just 1 tablet per day, but my nutritionist suggested taking 3 per day because I have some sciatica pain. I take all 3 pills at once, letting them melt under my tongue. Also better to take in the morning, because they may give you a slight burst in energy and you wouldn't want that before bedtime.

I have been reading all the information on this website about Borax treatment. I have also gone to several websites for bills and Jean information as suggested. I am looking to rid my body of parasites, worms, and candida. Any additional benefits of the Borax would be great. I bought overseas a small package labeled boric powder. Not sure if this is boric acid or borax. Small island so not a lot of other information. I also bought a small bottle of "glycerin of borax". Is it OK to use this? What is it? Any help would be grateful.

Thank you.
