04/20/2014: Pain In Feet from Sacramento, Ca: "Dave from Fountain Inn, Sc: Thank you. I was wondering if I had a circulation problem too. I sent away a hair analysis last year and it tested a bunch of metals. The printout reads that my magnesium is too high. Is there a way I can improve my circulation without taking magnesium? Also I was getting the detox Ionic Foot baths last year so I think I o.k. as far as pulling out toxins."

04/20/2014: Dave from Fountain Inn, Sc: "Hello Pain In Feet from California:

Given the symptoms you posted to me;

Magnesium deficiency and circulation problem. If me, I'd get on 500 mg of magnesium (any kind) and Vitamin E (natural E; d alpha tocopherol). Start with 200 iu daily and increase to 400 in four weeks; then add to 400 another 200 four weeks later.

Mag and E compliment each other. I'd get up to 1, 000 IUs daily of E. Also I'd get on arginine. (Why? You referenced heart issues and salt matters. You can consume salt if you get Mag.) The fact that you lighten up on salt and the heart is improved is conclusive (in my book) you have a mag deficiency. Other things you mentioned suggest lack of circulation is the main problem; so again I'd get on E. E will definitely help with circulation. And adding Vitamin B3, niacin would not hurt. 250 mg; will cause a slight flush; read about it on the internet."

  Re: Aloe for Trigger Finger
Sun, 20 Apr 14 17:33:16 -0500

04/20/2014: Tom In Va from Gloucester, Va: "Hello,

I have had trigger finger in my right hand for a few weeks now. Not my thumb, but the index, middle and ring fingers. The index and middle finger have it really bad. It's worse in the morning when I wake up. I've read the natural remedies and decided to take the aloe vera supplement and see how that works.

My decision was the aloe vera supplement provides more minerals than just the bromelain. I should receive my aloe in the next couple of days and will take it for a month. I will post my results at that time. If there is no difference in my trigger finger, then I will try the bromelain.

I feel that I should also report that I am no longer drinking soda as I have been focusing on eating healthier (no more fast food) and am drinking more water. I am trying to drink half my weight in ounces - I weigh 260 so I am trying to drink 130 ounces of water. If I get close I am happy, but I suspect as summer rolls in then it should not be a problem.

To stimulate the body's natural detox you need to boost Glutathione by supplementing NAC, and Melatonin (before retiring). Milk Thistle herb will strengthen the liver.

04/20/2014: Pain In Feet from Sacramento, Ca: "Dear Dave from Fountain Inn, Sc: Thank you. The only medication I take is birth control which I've been on for many years (longer than the feet throbbing pain). I stopped taking it for a few months to see if it made any difference. No changes. I have a rapid heart rate in the high 90's up to 102 beats per minute, but when I go easy on the salt for a couple of weeks, it goes back to normal, low 80's. I get checked every year, no high cholesterol, no high blood pressure & no diabetes.

I have a slight swelling on the left calf and a slight egg-size swelling above my left ankle. Most wouldn't notice it. I can't ride a bike or recumbent bike at the gym because the next day my feet hurt worse. Xrays from chiropractors show slight fusing on 1 disc but nothing to cause any problems especially since I don't have back or leg pain. I thought the source of the problem might be in my lower back or pelvic area for 2 reasons, one when I get on the floor and door stomach exercies/crunches, my feet hurt worse the next day and also

I use a kegel exerciser you squeeze between your thighs, not for the intended reason, but because it tightens the stomach, buttocks and saddle bag thighs. Doing that exercise makes my feet hurt worse the next day, but I do it periodically because it makes my thighs smaller! My hair has been thinning for about 25 years. Blood tests show my thyroid and endocrine system a little off but nothing drastic. I've been taking natural supplements for hair loss through a holistic healer which has helped. I have allergies all year - flower pollen & mold. That's about all the symptoms I have. I'm pretty healthy. I get a cold about once a year."

I have a big tumor in my right breast (first detected as 2cm in 2011) now it is around 7cm and has not gone to the lymphs. I have historic of MS as well which managed to heal completely alternatively. I do a lot of alternative healing now as well with several methods and I feel fine. My problem is that the tumor has come very close to the skin and I AM frightened that it might break through it. Is there anything I can do to prevent this ?

Please let me know - I really do not think the mastectomy as an option and I wish to avoid all the other "inhumane so called therapies like chemo-therapy radiation tamoxifen or whatever" I truly believe that all these kind of things send people straight forward to their grave.

If there is anything you can suggest to me please let me know. Thank you very much for your help

Kind Regards, Aphrodite"

Your story sounds EXACTLY like mine, but I was eventually diagnosed, by a vulvovaginal specialist in Houston, with Cytolytic Vaginosis. Cyclical yeast-like symptoms (itching, burning, discharge) with the absence of positive results for yeast are hallmarks of this imbalance (which is basically an overgrowth of lactobacilli, which can be brought on by repeated use of antifungals). I also read the V Book, and this book claims that Cytolytic Vaginosis has been debunked. I can assure you that this is not true. A specialist here in Houston informed me that it is a real clinical entity that responds to appropriate treatment. if you're still having symptoms, especially with the use of Rephresh Pro-B, please look into Cytolytic Vaginosis!"

Different brain waves will do different things, Some will liven you up, or relax you.

Others will ease or completely take the pain away. I tried different ones at a time, to see what I felt at ease with. Some within a minute I stopped and other's I found useful. And it's best if you have headphones to listen through them. And some got lovely videos with them so I put it on wide screen by using the icon bottom right of the video and to go back to normal screen just click the same one.

What one will find works in a good way for them may not do anything for anyone else.I tried one that someone else raved about and it gave me a bloody headache and ringing in my ear's after 2 mins :-D Something else I find helpful is guided meditation as well, you can listen to them anytime of day. Some prefer the AM others PM. But I just use it no matter what the time is.

04/20/2014: Don from Melbourne, AU: "According to Andreas Moritz a series of liver flushes might work. The theory is that the liver is blocked up and cannot filter blood sufficiently, and so the body stores the waste material in lipomas . Once the liver starts cleaning blood properly the lipomas reduce over time. I would use a topical methods and do the liver flush to attack it on two fronts. Some castor pack and apple cider type methods. Andreas has testimonials of liver flushes doing exactly this . check this hypothesis out, it doesnt cost anything to try, but is a bit of an effort. Most people wont try it because of the amount of effort required, but If u are really annoyed you will probably try everything that looks plausible."

My mother was an overweight waitress into her 60s who carried 50-lb trays all day and her doc didn't hesitate to give her shots. She probably would have collapsed otherwise. Sometimes treatments carry risks but he'd rather let you suffer with the gem of wisdom to lose weight - as if this is an ideal solution for damage already done.

Anyone required to stand for several hours on a regular basis is subjecting their body to stress it wasn't designed for, as was my case. I couldn't afford orthotics right away and the spur developed within a couple short months of a rough job. My feet are flat with overpronation also. I started with epsom salt baths. Btw warm-not hot water is needed for absorption. Then Morton epsom salt lotion. I had awesome relief for a while with both of those. Another oil you can use is eucalypus, directly or in the bath. I just happened to have some lying around that I bought with an indoor fountain. Right now I have a Salonpas patch on and it's working great. Cheap for a 40 pack. The delivery system is supposed to last for hours but I can't vouch for that..yet."

  Re: Dave's Experiment with Papaya
Sun, 20 Apr 14 05:48:35 -0500

04/20/2014: Dave from Fountain Inn, Sc: "Hello Juliana,

Re GE Papaya

I understand that the Papaya coming out of Hawaii are largely GE changed ... not just by a better resistant strain to the Virus, but an actual addition to the DNA.

I also read that the large Papayas from South America are not so GE changed.

I use the large ones but can't confirm for sure if they are the SA variety or not.

Whether the GE issue makes a difference in the digestive qualities of the Papaya would be my issue as what I've seen so far in using the Papaya daily for a few months now has done nothing but improve my digestion in ways I'd have never guessed.

The problem of GE foods is pervasive. Monsanto has tried to take over the world's food production. And our own US House of Representatives constantly protects the GE industry by protecting the GE industry from potential lawsuits and just this past year the House snuck a provision into the Farm Bill that stopped the States from passing legislation (local to the state) that would require LABELING of GE foods.

The frightening thing is that the Monsanto take over with its GE change in seeds, has given "Round-Up Ready" usage to much of our food supply already. Probably all of our corn and the theory is that the change in the corn DNA can (especially the young) impact DNA in the human.

I have a radio talk show that comes on every Saturday on legal issues...94.5 in Greenville South Carolina and a year ago I spent THREE of my shows blasting Monsanto and the whole GE field for NOT adequately testing GE foods for their effects on humans. One study in particular came out of Australia that showed the carry over effect on humans. As I recall the thrust of these articles that I had access to were warning about the lack of studies on how the GE food would impact humans. The show comes on at 9 AM (EST). I might just bring up the GE issue again this upcoming Saturday. You've got me thinking about it again. (You can get it over computer: Google 94.5 Greenville and you'll just click "Listen now" and in a minute you'll pick up the broadcast ... an hour... mainly of legal info ("Legal Talk- Legal Traps").

Thanks for bring up the issue of potential harm ... harm in any GE changed food.

And by GE... I don't mean "strain" mixing to get the better variety...I mean what most folks think when they hear GE changed food...some scientist altering the DNA of the food to subtract or add some variant not found in the varieties of the food itself."

  Re: Using Progesterone
Sat, 19 Apr 14 14:40:34 -0500

04/19/2014: Mama To Many from Tennessee: "Dear Loraine,

Here is my 2 cents on progesterone cream. I have used it with great results on and off over the last 10-12 years or so. (Mostly off. I have just used it as needed here and there.) I have not noticed any long term side effects. (Nor short term, for that matter.) It has helped with what I needed it for. (Regulating cycles when they were "off.") At the same time, I have read that "natural" progesterone is not really that natural. I know a naturopath who says she wouldn't touch it with rubber gloves. Rachel Weaver, an herbalist whom I have learned much from, recommends it when all else has failed. She considers it to be a "big gun" and not to be used carelessly. Personally, I am comfortable using it when my other options are not working.

Have you tried Evening Primrose Oil or any of the herbs that are commonly recommended during menopause? (i.e. Black Cohosh, Vitex, Damiana, etc?) I know there are some herbal formulas out there for this season of life. However, I am just starting to learn about it myself (I am 47.) so I don't have any hard and fast recommendations. Plus, it seems that everyone is different so there is not likely a one size fits all solution.

Hope I haven't muddied the waters worse than they were....as I said, it is just my 2 cents. Do let us know what you try and what helps!

  Re: Dave's Experiment with Papaya
Sat, 19 Apr 14 13:38:08 -0500

04/19/2014: Dave from Fountain Inn, Sc: "Update on Papaya Experiment;

The Digestive Power of Papaya..

Bronchial "tickling" gone...

I've fought a lactose intolerance condition for over 30 years. If I eat/drink milk products I begin feeling a tickling sensation in my upper lungs area and what follows would be spasmodic coughing. If I eat too much red meat...the same response. It would seem then I developed a lactase (enzyme) insufficiency and a pepsin (enzyme) deficiency.

So I've been experimenting with the fruit Papaya and discovered that somehow if I consume Papaya I have no tickling in the bronchial when I eat the "forbidden" foods. (I'm OK if I eat/drink a "lactose" free milk or ice cream product OR if I take lactase digestive enzymes.

But I've reported to the EC community that I've conducted my own experiments....with me as the Guinea Pig. I have really PUSHED to see how far this phenomenon would work.

As one of EC's guru's...Bill from the Philippines... suggested; something else must be going on because the Papain enzyme in Papaya should only help with Protein metabolism. I agreed and so am amazed at the experiment's results.

This morning, for instance, I took half a Papaya and mixed with two small mangos. Added yogurt AND whole milk cream (whipping cream) and blended. I drank two cups of that marvelous ... lush...delicious concoction (not too sugary) but definitely real trouble for me because of all the "milk" elements.

Waited for the inevitable coughing. Waited for the inevitable tickling deep in upper lungs (bronchial I suppose). NOTHING.

So...I took the remainder of the blend and added MORE cream and made...ice cream. An hour later ... gobbled that up. Still no tickling in lungs.

Now I may have tainted the experiment by adding Mango. But doubt it.

Just a good news update. More later."

  Re: Ted's Input Requested for Jumping Legs

04/19/2014: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand: "There is no standard for checking of blood viscosity and blood fats as opposed to cholesterol. But typically the blood sugar always rises up and these fungal and bacteria produces biofilm that are polysaccharides form of biofilm that limits blood circulation and causes a reflex responses caused by infection of myelin sheath. The treatment is not to eat high fat foods such as chocolate, cheese, bacon, ice cream and fried foods. The source of this fungal bacteria comes from small intestines due to eating too fast especially not chewing. Also result the vegetable cannot be digested as mammals lack enzymes to digest them. Anyway fulvic acid and humic acid taken every day for a month should stop some of this kicking. Avoid foods especially fructose and fruits and take light meals or not at all after 6 pm. Since my treatment is very advanced and more difficult to acquire i will stick to simple remedies for now.

May help improve if you take b8 inositol 4000 mg and b6 taken before eating 100 mg. It might also help if you take granulated lecithin one tablespoons a day, vitamin k and vitamin c.

04/19/2014: Julie from Daly City, California: "I read somewhere about a year ago that V**ks V***rub works to kill toenail fungus. Well one day I tried it. Then I forgot about it until one day when I went to cut my toe nails and I thought, wow, is it my imagination or did that one time of rubbing the v**ks into my toe nail really work because my nails looked slightly better. So I rubbed a little on again and again forgot about it for a bit and then remembered and took a closer look. My nails looked a little better. I rubbed it on them again and the next time I checked I swear my little toe nails were looking flatter and started to look less like the fat lump of a toenail they had become. The other nails started to look like they were flattening out too...meaning they weren't growing away from the nail bed so much because of the noticeable disappearance of that substance that grows under the nail associated with the fungus. I am not diligent about applying it probably everyday like I should but I was impressed with the results after only 3 applications done at least a month apart. I am going to try and be more consistent with applying it, hopefully everyday, and see what happens but I honestly saw a difference with just those three times and had seen no difference with other over the counter type applications. I will post my results, if any, in the future but as God as my witness, I swear, there is a difference. It doesn't seem to hurt the nail or the skin and it's worth a shot and hopefully I will be posting positive results sometime soon!"

04/18/2014: Loraine from Orlando, FL: "Hey EC.....Quick question which I hope someone can answer. I am thinking of using some progesterone since I am approaching menopause to balance out my whacked out hormones. The thing is after checking out different products online, I noticed that on some of the products, it clearly states that in the state of California, progesterone use can cause cancer. Now this scared the heck out of me. I know that one should not mess with their hormones but since mine was low, I figured why not use some to help me out in this transition but I have to say I was quite taken aback with this disclosure. Any help from you great people would be highly appreciated. Thanks guys"

04/19/2014: Bill from San Fenando, Philippines: "Hi Dave...Great questions. Normally when you get oxalate problems these normally occur at the extremities of the body -- hands, feet and head. My major reason for using niacin like this is to ensure that the other nutrients recommended actually successfully reach the extremities via the blood. Niacin changes and thins the blood safely, opens the capillaries for better delivery of these nutrients to these extremities. Niacinamide does not do this because it is further along the cycle for eventual conversion to NADP or energy. In other words niacin is eventually converted to niacinamide in the energy cycle in the following way:

niacin -->.....--> niacinamide--> NADP(Nicotinamide Adenosine Diphosphate)

NADP then becomes part of the electron transport chain that supplies energy(ATP) throughout the cell itself. And that's as far as I'm going to go with it -- I prefer to keep it simple. But if you wish to be further confused -- then have a look at this complex explanation which will be like double Dutch to most people -- See this link.

Apart from the uniqueness of niacin's effect on blood, both niacin and niacinamide appear to have the same multitudinous benefits. It was also recently discovered from research (at the University of Minnesota within the last two years I think) that higher dose niaicinamide increases the strength and performance of the immune system by a factor of 2000. That, in itself, is reason enough to use higher dose niacin or niacinamide. It also cures depression, helps to cure heart disease, helps to cure alcoholics, cures schizophrenia, improves mood and raises energy levels. I've also read where Ted has also written that niacin/niacinamide kills both candida and mycoplasma too. Yet more reasons to use B3 at higher dose to keep yourself healthy. Dr Abram Hoffer took high dose niacin (up to 3 grams a day) for over 50 years and he died at age 93 after a long and productive life. Hoffer always said that supplementing higher dose niacin would extend your life and he's the proof.

So in answer to your questions:

Do you think niacinamide can play a role in eliminating mycoplasma or does your manifold recommendation cover the bases?

Absolutely -- because niacin/niacinamide, when they are taken in larger doses as Ted recommends, can raise up the strength of the immune system by a factor of 2000.

What is the role of calcium oxalate in the tangled problem?

Oxalate is hard to remove. But if you take EDTA then this will remove the heavy metals and excess calcium which helps to get rid of the calcium oxalate itself. Perhaps not the best answer in the world, but its sometimes difficult to follow Ted's thinking. And since Ted has said that niacin will kill mycoplasma -- I would believe him and simply leave it at that. I tried looking for evidence of such cures for mycoplasma several years ago, none to be found or all the important research has been deliberately hidden. Probably because the US Bio-Warfare Department has already had weaponized mycoplasma of its own for many years, so the last thing they really want is a cure for mycoplasma. There is much evidence for this. Lupus, Lyme and Morgellon's Disease always involve mycoplasma. SLE is difficult to diagnose, Lyme is not universally recognized as a disease and neither is Morgellon's recognized as a disease. All these diseases involve mycoplasma.

Out of interest, here's something from Ted (written way back in 2005) on another website talking about the cause of Morgellon's Disease and how it originated....And how he actually cured himself of this disease:

The solution came from secret military research which they have the cure. Apparently the cure is really simple, they used a 2%-3% DMSO mixed with 5% sodium perborate solution. They had to have the solution to protect biochemists like me from the infections.

It worked like magic on me when I got one. They kept it under the wraps because they need the "Morgellons" to spread the mycoplasma. Since you don't believe in conspiracy theory and I don't have a perfect memory, I will not go into details. There was another chemical they also used which I don't recall it now, but I guess it is not that important. However the simple insect not yet "officially" identified as I understand it they were trying to get it patented.

However it is great in carrying pathogens across a wide area of at least several thousand miles using birds as a carrier. This includes the bird flu, mycoplasma, chlamydia, SARS, etc.

Hmmm. The other "missing" ingredient? They MIGHT had an egg chitin dissolving solvent, EDTA and weak acetic acid, but I am not sure. Possibly a hormone disruptant
to cause sterilization that I suggested to my boss (he works for biowarfare research directly), but I don't know if he added my formulas or not. It was Neem oil if you want to know. Remember, the reason why I knew some of the formula was I was suggesting some improvements on those stuff to get rid of the critters faster. Since I got one myself 20+ years ago. It took about 3 days to rid of it and another week to prove that I don't infect my fellow co-workers.

If you know anyone in the military research, I am sure they improved my ancient formulas (which is fragmented) since my boss refused to tell me all the ingredients. We work in compartmentalization. So don't put your hopes up high on it. They might have
"evolved" or made a better breed those little creatures already, I am not sure. In the world of research, 20 year old research is TRULY ancient.

So if your doctors and drugs companies say that SLE, Lyme Disease and Morgellon's Disease do not exist then, by heck, it must be true!! (sic)

04/19/2014: Dave from Fountain Inn, Sc: "Hello Bill,

Re: Mycoplasma

I notice Ted from Bangkok also recommends large dose (5, 000 mg daily?) niacinamide. That post was from 2006 and focused on the calcium oxalate protection that mycoplasma effectuates. Ted's post I referred to is found in the permanent Mycoplasma "Ailments" Section in EC. YOUR post (the one I'm replying to) is eleven posts below his.

My question then is two fold: Do you think niacinamide can play a role in eliminating mycoplasma or does your manifold recommendation cover the bases? And question two; what is the role of calcium oxalate in the tangled problem? Ted focuses on that issue too talking about the use of disodium EDTA to keep oxalic acid from doing this and even talks of bicarbonates from entering the blood stream."

Sat, 19 Apr 14 03:23:08 -0500

04/19/2014: Bill from San Fenando, Philippines: "Hi Holisticmom624...There is a remedy on EC that acts against mycoplasma. This is Borax Water as recommended by Ted from Bangkok. This entails adding 1/8 tsp of borax to one liter of water and drinking one liter of this borax water throughout the day. Take this remedy on a five days on and two days off continuous cycle. Borax kills mycoplasma, fungus and also supports bone formation. It balances hormones and also removes fluoride from the body as well as cures arthritis. Using non-scented 20 Mule Team Borax is fine for this remedy. I'm 63 y o and I've been using this borax water remedy regularly for about 8 years and can attest that it is effective.

If the borax remedy doesn't appeal to you, you could perhaps use a special compound herbal mix from raintreeformulas.com called Myco, which has been specifically designed to combat and eradicate all forms of bacteria as well as mycoplasma. This site also has other herbal formulations that target spirochete bacteria(called Spiro) and others that target fungal and viral problems as well. I know and have used this site in the past to get bulk herbs. This site only ever uses organic, sustainable herbs from the Amazon jungle region.

There are also other specific compound herbal mixes that you might also want to investigate. See the Nutramedix, Nutricology and Herb Pharm websites for more natural anti-microbial formulas that might help you. Another one is 1stchineseherbs.com. I don't know these sites so well (they don't ship to the Philippines where I live) but they seem to have have a good range of wildcrafted herbs, extracts etc. for sure.

See Ted from Bangkok's advice for Lupus here on EC.

Just to also finally mention that if you think that you have SLE then have a look at the current research on Dr William Shaw's website. His research has confirmed that problems such as Lupus, as well as many other autoimmune and mental problems, always seem to involve candida, various bacteria and possibly parasites and viruses as well. So don't think that you have just one infection -- mycoplasma -- you should perhaps be thinking multi-pathogen infections because of such a hugely lowered immune system capability. If you think that you have SLE then I would advise that you should perhaps use the following strategy:

* Broad spectrum or suitable individual herbal protocols that will specifically kill a wide range of bacteria, mycoplasma, fungus, viruses, parasites etc.

* Protocols that will remove biofilms. (eg Serrapeptase, Bromelain, Gum Turpentine).

* Alkalizing the body every day. See this link.

* Protocols that detox heavy metals and poisons.(eg Chlorella, Kelp, EDTA)

* Protocols that help build up the immune system.(eg Lugols Iodine)

* Liver/Kidney protection protocols.(eg Alpha Lipoic Acid, Selenium, Milk Thistle)

* Vegetarian Diet.

* Avoid antibiotics like the plague.

I use a strategy similar to the above against candida(also a multi-pathogen disease). See this link for more detailed explanations."

Many of those NDE'rs report feeling absolutely no remorse while remotely viewing there damaged or sick body below. Many beg the sprits to not make them "go back down there". I lost my mom to cancer in 2009 but the suffering and passing was not so bad. Once, while mother was up in a wheelchair w/ family, I had a brief minds-eye realization (while looking at mom) that she was better off than us. Mother was an extremely giving & caring person and had no fear of dying, so her composure helped elicit my vision. Also, some of her last spoken words were "It's beautiful" while looking into the heavenly realms.

04/19/2014: Timh from Ky: "Tassi: Do note that Zinc & Vit-A (cod liver oil) work together very well. When I was bedridden (with chronic diaheria) for 6mo+ the nurses put all sorts of prescription creams on, but none were near good enough. When I got home and applied some C.L.O., booom! Pain & rash gone. The Vit-E, as you attested, is very good for strengthening the skin or dermal. Note that Vit-E works best in combination w/Selenium, and CoQ10.

If I might add, concerning long-term care, only a few months after I began a brief career in nursing, an old school guy was the director of respiratory dept. at our little hometown hospital, and a good fella. Somehow some enthusiasm was generated to help some of the most severe bed-sore patience; and he began O2 (oxygen) topical administration w/ some improvement but not enough. He soon began applying heat lamp (light) therapy on the sores with much improvement. It may have been the combination of both treatments that resulted in some drastic improvement of people who had been yrs in bed and now getting up in chairs and becoming active; it was something almost miraculous and unfortunately not altogether welcomed by administrators."

  Re: Severe Recurring Sinus Infection
Fri, 18 Apr 14 15:17:14 -0500

04/18/2014: Dave from Fountain Inn, Sc: "Hello Nomonde:

I concur with what "Mama to Many" says and re emphasize her suggestion for using Colloidal Silver she mentioned. I'm betting it's a viral infection...chronic. In fact, surprised it hasn't migrated (assuming infection) to other organs because he's had it so long. Long lasting viruses/fungal infections do that. The way you described it...could very well be fungal. Great irritation like he is trying to attack it is how you described it. Very itchy...yes maybe fungal. So also check around his room...is there anything that could be a mold source? But you or the other members of the family aren't similarly infected; which mold would do...so probably not mold. That doesn't mean his infection is not fungal, however.

When I take Colloidal Silver, I sniff vigorously into both nostrils (one at a time! )...and if it's an infection, there will be a sharp "burning"...especially on the more infected side. IF it does burn and then drain after another two or three applications....and then if I am better able to breathe, then I know I'm infected. I know to repeat until the infection is gone. Sometimes, a stubborn infection I'll fight for two months. (MEAN ones.) But I don't give up and it stays localized in the sinus cavity. I also squirt my ear canals with an ear syringe of the CS to kill any of the virus/fungus in the canals or labyrinth...AND both the sinus irrigation and the ear irrigation gets the CS to all of the Eustachian Tubes also. Infections LOVE to hide out in the ETs.

If I determine I have a sinus infection...not merely allergy...I also DRINK the CS for a month to kill it in my system.

I use a high PPM CS...I make my own. (A test: If the CS you have won't knock out a sore throat when I gargle with it... it ain't worth a dime.)

Now last point: Even if he is allergic to some combo of foods, he could still be infected. The allergy would act to close up sinus cavity with inflammation and that lack of good circulation could produce virus/fungus growth.

Last point: When a long lasting infection is treated with CS...it will REALLY sting...all the way to what feels like behind the eye! So I am always prepared for a "hit" if there's an infection in me. Hold on when the CS goes into sinus cavity. But when I re apply...a few minutes later for second round...almost NO stinging. Good quality CS works fast."

[YEA]  04/17/2014: Tassi from California, US: "I take care of my 93 year old mother who has alzheimers and cannot move most of her body. Once she reached this stage, she started getting bedsores and we began a routine of shifting her in the bed every few hours, sometimes every 2 hours. I discovered a couple of things that make a difference. First, to cure a bedsore, the best thing is honey, Manukka honey if you can get it. The odd thing was that the two jars of it I bought, both the same brand but one with twice the "power" rating as the other were reversed in effect, I mean the lower power one cured faster than the one that was twice as expensive. (Note that I read that New Zealand produces a lot less Manukka honey than it sells -- IE, it is not all the 'real thing, ' so be careful.)

OK, best is to prevent bedsores in the first place. The thing I discovered first was zinc picolinate. Eight 25 mg tablets a day (crushed because of swallowing issues). That made her skin stronger and stopped the bedsores. This worked for about a year, but meanwhile her overall condition worsened
and she could no longer chew and eat regular food (or drink water) without choking. Her diet became very restricted and good nutrition became a problem (she has had only applesauce to "drink" for almost a year now). This is when we had to really move her body every two hours or pre-bedsore areas would form, even though I increased the zinc picolinate to 12 or more pills per day. But recently I read that 2500 IU of d-alpha tocopherol vitamin E is good for people with alzheimers, and then I discovered after giving her that for a couple of weeks that her skin no longer is forming those pre-bedsore blisters, and her skin seems stronger and not as thin.

So I thought I would try to pass on this important information in case it might help others.

Your brother is blessed to have you watching out for him. 16 years is a long time to deal with this problem!

There are a number of things he can try, all of them could be done safely together.

Avoid dairy for a time. Dairy is mucous forming. After the issue is resolved, he can try it again and see how he does. I had a son that had a chronic throat clearing problem that was resolved when he gave up dairy. Interestingly, after 6 months or so of no dairy, he was able to have it again with no problem.

Lots of vitamin C. He can take a gram of it a few times a day. If it gives him diarrhea, he can cut back a bit. This would be good for lingering infection and is a natural anti-histamine, if indeed it is caused by allergies.

He should try Apple Cider Vinegar, 1 Tablespoon, in water once or twice a day.

Increasing his water intake may help to thin the mucous. Increasing fruits may also be helpful.

He can put a dropperful of colloidal silver into each nostril and each ear a few times a day to try and kill off any lingering infection.

Turmeric is a natural anti-inflammatory. A teaspoon once or twice a day may also be helpful.

Please let us know how he is doing. If none of this works, there are always more things to try, though I am hopeful that these things may be enough to help.

The warts (small ones are gone in 2 days...bigger ones in 5 days) just disappear. Carrageenan is used in a lubricant (bioglide) to keep the virus from spreading but it can be used as a treatment too. Maybe one of you would like to try this too? It's cheap, doesn't burn your private parts and as far as I 've found out it works. Good luck. I hope my english is good enough for you to understand.

Some time ago I tried Ibuprofen but it caused venous stress so I dropped it. For inflammation I currently take Celadrin and Flax Oil."

04/17/2014: Key West Lu from Key West: "I have also been diagnosed with Grovers (over 15 years and counting). I am in the middle of a horrendous flare up and have been told to go on drugs that are really scary. This morning I was so inflamed that I got ice packs and put them on the worst areas. OMG! This was awesome. The blisters have almost disappeared and I am no longer itching uncontrollably. And the best part is that other parts of my body where I didn't put the ice packs have calmed down. I am not cured but I am not so out of control that I'm miserable. (I've had several emotional breakdowns this week due to the uncontrollable itching) I have been doing some crazy stuff to try to stay off the drugs. I have bathed using a solution of olive oil and sea salt (stings like crazy), then put on hydrogen peroxide (I was told today that this was bad b/c HP breaks down skin but it seems to be working for me), and then used triamcinolone cream and topped with coconut oil. But the life saving thing was the ice packs on the areas that were so out of control. I live in south Florida so I am also laying out in the sun for 15 minutes on each side every day."

Exercise Helping Spider Veins

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  04/17/2014: Fooshcat from West Michigan: "More and more we hear that exercise is a factor in preventing all sorts of diseases from cardiovascular to certain types of cancer to Alzheimer's. So, about 4 months ago I started an exercise routine using a light/medium cardio dvd 3-4 days a week. About 6 weeks ago I switched the routine and began rotating between 3 dvds 5 days a week. One dvd involves toning with light weight and lots of reps; another is toning with weights, lots of reps and interval bursts of cardio; the third dvd involves toning circuits, but it moves at such a pace that my heart pumps like it's medium cardio. Each dvd is a good total body workout and each is about an hour long. Today I happened to notice the spider veins that appear on the inside of my ankle and foot area are much less noticeable. The right ankle/foot was worse for some reason and it looks substantially better. The spider veins on the left ankle/foot are now barely noticeable. The only other change I've made recently is to eliminate artificial sweeteners and add more fruit to my diet. I've always eaten fairly healthy - lots of vegetables, the only meat I eat is wild caught fish, and we eat organic when possible. I've taken an eye health supplement for years that contains rutin which is supposed to be good for veins, but that's not new to my routine. My main unhealthy vice in life is wine!

While the exercise doesn't seem to be helping my cellulite (any tips on this would be greatly appreciated! ), it appears to be helping those nasty little squiggly veins. It'll make me feel better about wearing sandals this summer! For reference, I'm 43 years old and about 10 lbs overweight and have an office job that forces me to sit all day."

04/17/2014: Kate from Usa: "Oh my I can empathize, I'm 24 now but started getting infected folliculs at 17/18. It's the pits, I'm so glad I decided to look into natural remedies because the gels and crap my doctor keeps giving me are not working. My wonderful boyfriend has been so great about helping me get over the self esteem issues that came with the boils, he even took off work last summer to take me to the ER because one had become super infected and needed to be lanced- so gross, do not recommend. My point is, when you find the right person, they will know that we are all human and illness happens."
