I have read that Colloidal Silver has been known not to kill Cancer cells, but to return them to normal. You might want to invest in a generator to make your own at home and then start on some massive doses to start. Do not worry about turning blue or grey either. You should read some of the posts on this site and then do a little research - I think you'll find its worth trying.

Dear Stephanie,

I recently used some kefir from the grocery store when I was out of town and was happy with it. I haven't tried it for something acute so can't really compare it with home made, but if home made is not an option, I think it is certainly worth a try!

Yes, you can use the same turmeric that you use in your kitchen. You avoid fillers and and such when you take it that way. It isn't bad mixed in kefir. (Well, my kids don't agree with me on that... :) )

The comfrey I have used was fresh. I was using a fresh leaf with kefir etc in my blender. But if you could get dried comfrey leaf powder, you could try that instead. (I would mix a teaspoon a couple of times a day into a kefir drink.) Comfrey is supposed to be excellent for ibs symptoms, though I think the SCD you are on says NOT to take mucilaginous herbs, which comfrey is....

I think the DMSO and supplements you are doing for your shoulder sound great. Alternating heat and cold is also a wonderful pain/healing treatment and it is free! I have done this using a heating pad and frozen rice sock. Alternating each on a pained area. Cold, hot, cold, hot, cold, hot, cold. About a minute each. This can be done a few times a day. If you do not have a heating pad you can make another rice sock and microwave it for the warm application. The idea is that the cold reduces inflammation and the warm is bringing fresh blood for healing.

Good to hear from you. You are really persevering!

When I was your age, I had stomach pain so bad, the doc went in for exploratory surgery and found nothing, they had me on several meds and nothing helped, after surgery they asked me if I was stressed over something, and im like YEAH!! My stomach hurts and you guys can't find nothing.. LOL ... its more than likely stress.. (keeping my fingers crossed) change your diet, delete soda pop, start a food diary and write down your physical systems and keep tabs, you can take vitamin b complex to help deal with the stress and nerves, drink some turmeric tea to help with the pain, my recipe is 1 tablespoon turmeric 4 cups of water and 1 tablespoon of hone, simmer for 10 minutes and sip,

If you have a gassy stomach which also comes from stress, you can drink a shot of apple cider vinegar and that should calm the gut, if you have diareha drink a shot of kosher dill pickle juice, and to help the swelling better, take a tube sock and fill it 3/4 full of dry rice and tie a knot at the end so the rice doesn't fall out, than take the rice sock and place it in the 2nd sock and knot that one as well, place the dry rice/sock in the microwave and set it on 2 minutes.. NO MORE THAN 2 MINUTES, , this will be HOT. and grab the sock by the knot when taking it out of the microwave, grab a face towel and wrap it around the dry rice sock and place it on the area that hurts the most, you can reuse this sock many times as long as you don't get it wet. Get well soon :)

  Would Kombucha Work as Well as ACV for Gout?

Im wondering if Kombucha will do the same thing, its made with a 'Mother' and causes acid to become alkali and it tastes just like vinegar.

Hives Cured by Detox

Tue, 09 Feb 16 19:22:02 -0500
Posted by Steve (Alaska) on 02/09/2016

[YEA]  My experience with hives began June of 2015. UV light on a hot, sunny day reacted with the warfarin that I take and caused the typical red welts and extreme itching on my forearms, neck and one ankle. The reaction may have been to the dye used in warfarin.

The dermatologist was useless. What worked for me was apple cider vinegar, activated charcoal capsules, and coconut oil. I also used supplements of DAO Histaminase and Quercetin. Cold ice packs on the affected skin followed with coconut oil helps reduce the itching.

It is my belief that hives isn't caused by a particular food or substance per se. Rather, these things function as a trigger to an overloaded immune system that is dealing with a lot of toxins in the body. I am 67 and have had time to accumulate a lot of toxins. As the charcoal and ACV cleaned out the toxins, the rash and itching went away.

Detox will be a regular practice for me from now on.

Hi may I recommend glutathione for your memory. It reduced my lyme symptoms about a quarter and definitely helped with my brain fog. The disease stresses the glutathione levels of the body. I read this in "Why Can't I Get Better? Solving the Mystery of Chronic Lyme Disease" by Dr Richard I. Horowitz. Use sublingual or liposomal glutathione for best results. Great info on this site thx

How very sad to hear Ted is being taken away. His protocol of sodium bicarbonate and lemon etc along with his mix of turmeric, ginger etc to sort out acid reflux etc has made such a huge difference to my life, I couldn't even start to thank him enough. He is clearly a very generous and wise soul and will be greatly missed on this site. I hope he finds good medicines and peace in the countryside and I will bless his name with every meal I eat! What a wonderful person he must be. May he receive all the earth blessings possible to help him recover.

Natural Remedies Not Working So Far for My Leukemia

Posted by Aspy Mehta (New Delhi, India) on 02/09/2016

Hi, I have been diagnosed with CLL (Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia) in October 15 and since the last four months my leukocyte count has jumped to 42000 with swelling of lymph nodes in the groin.

I have got onto the Budwig diet but it does not seem to make much difference. I really don't want to go for the traditional Chemo route. I take turmeric, a bit of wheat grass and juices , but am not sure whether the quantities are enough to make any difference.

I would be grateful for anyone to give me advise on how to control/ reduce my WBC count.

  Re: Staying Awake During An All Night Prayer

Posted by Hisjewel (America, New York) on 02/09/2016

Regarding that while searching for a way to Stay Alert and Awake I found the Sleep, Insomnia section. The list is huge. I simply stopped all I was making use of from the list for the few days I had left before the prayer. And what a difference. I did not have to go put cold water on my face. And I did not fall asleep on the train on the way home.

P. S. in case you are wondering if the lower back is still gone after the prayer and fasting, yes it is still gone. No more kidney pain or whatever that was. it was a quick effective cleansing.

I hate the taste of ACV too. Do not mix in water. Take spoonful quickly and follow it up with a glass of cold water quickly. It washed away the taste. Or add it to meet or veggies as you cook, It takes away that raw acidic taste. Also helps not to get gas from veggies. It truly is an internal deodorant as well. Good luck.

Dosing Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide and DMSO

Tue, 09 Feb 16 18:50:03 -0500
Posted by Dennis (Anchorage, Alaska) on 02/09/2016

For Herpes Type II - I have just purchased the 35% Food Grade Peroxide and DMSO gel. It is my understanding that I am to take three drops of this with 8 ounces of distilled water 3X daily. It is my understanding that I am to spray any area of past breakouts (regardless of any present signs) and the base of my spine each day. Then I am to rub the gel over the sprayed areas in order to help the peroxide penetrate into my body. Has anyone tried this and did it work?

I also ordered lysine and I intend to take 1000mg 2X daily, however, I am taking Paxil, Gabapentin and Seroquel daily for other medical problems.

Does anyone know if the 35% F.G. peroxide and the DMSO will cause any side effects when taken with the prior mentioned medications?

EC: If you are planning to spray 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide on your spine, it must be diluted first. 1 part food grade hydrogen peroxide plus 11 parts distilled or otherwise pure water.

Also, if you DMSO is more than 70% DMSO, it also needs to be diluted to be used on the skin to 70%.

My son had very high cholesterol when he was 16 years old. I changed all our oils to coconut oil. He also ate oatmeal for breakfast. His next doctor visit was normal. His cholesterol level went to normal range. I don't remember what it was since it was over 8 years ago. He is still fine.

Hi Timh and Mama to Many,

Timh, I understand how living alone you have no room for mistakes, I think of that everytime I walk down the stairs, to be super careful, there is no one to pick you up if you fall, so falling is not an option. and when your heart hurts, to relax, breath, think of great things, take the necessary supplements, no matter how hard it is to walk to the kitchen! I am so glad to know you are feeling better right now!

I went to the doc and asked for the Nystatin. he gave me the pills, not the liquid. should I try the pills? Or, should I try to get the liquid? The pills state that they have additives, and that some people have reactions to the additives, but do not list the ingredients. I remember trying Nystatin in 2010, but it was liquid.

I didn't find a DGL/allantoin supplement yet. Only found DGL. Again, I am confused because its so hard to follow the Specific Carbohydrate Diet since they say no licorice. I am not following it perfectly anymore, but trying not stray too far off of the diet. only when its important. and it sounds like I should try the DGL, and see how my colitis does.

I asked the doctor if a nutritionist would be covered by my medicaid and he said no. I do not have a natural doctor, I had found a wonderful chiropractor who was basically a nutritionist and did acupressure, and I was very grateful to see him for a few months, but he suddenly passed away a year ago, he was amazing, he saw me for free since I am unable to work. If I couldn't breathe, or was in vertigo, he always helped, and believed me when I told him what I was feeling. My regular doctor is all I can afford since he's in my medicaid. He isn't trained in natural meds. So for my LPR (laryngopharyngeal reflux) he gave me Zantac (Ranitidine). I don't know if I should take the Zantac or just try the baking soda.

I don't know much about the antiparasite & pathogen remedies. I do have lugols iodine, its hard for me to bend so I have never put it on my feet, but I put 2 drops on my wrist and rub my wrists together. Is that ok? I have coconut oil. I like it on my salmon, once a wk. I have tried to eat a tsp of it, daily, but I am not consistent. I have 7 large mercury fillings, so I am not sure if its ok to do the coconut oil pulling, with the mercury. In fact, I am not sure what is ok to take since I have them. Currently removing them is not an option. Both financially, and physically since I am in back pain 24/7, and constant mild vertigo from the lymes, so traveling is hard.

i have bee pollen that I got 2 years ago from my neighbors farm. I am sure it is still good. I don't think it goes bad. But when I tried to take it, I wasn't sure if I had a reaction, so I stopped, and haven't been brave enough to try it again. I do have a tsp of honey daily though. again, the Specific Carb Diet says no, to bee pollen, its hard to get better if I can't try these healthy cures! So thats why I am not perfect on the SCD diet. do you think its ok to try it again? and I could just start with a small amount, and see if my colitis is happy?

Mama to Many,

I went to the doctor. he said he thinks its rotator cuff and I don't need xray, and don't need orthopedic doctor yet. he said to move and use my arm and shoulder. I have a lot more use of it as of yesterday. What I did so far: I rubbed 70% dmso gel on it, 30% aloe. took magnesium citrate. took a COQ10 /cocurcumin supplement, and rested my shoulder. I am very interested in what you did. you said you had a drink of kefir/turmeric/comfrey a few times a day. I am confused about comfrey. I don't know how to take it. I saw it on the internet. I ran out of turmeric capsules, but I do have a bottle that I sprinkle on my salmon, I could use that. I saw Kefir at the grocery store. can I buy that kind or do I need the healthy kind from the health food store? I don't plan on making it, I have limited energy and $. They said great things about Comfrey on the internet, I am very interested. Also it said that allantoin is in comfrey, and Timh suggests allantoin, so since you both suggest it, then it must be great! Thank you so much! -Steph

Nose and Tonsils Caused My Bad Breath

[YEA]  Something worked for me and I hope it will help those who suffer as well. All my life I looked into mouth thinking, it was teeth, I brushed till my teeth got erosions. I had no post nasal drip so I thought that is not the case for me. But when I swallowed, I always smelled that decay somewhere but still that no, I have dry nose and no I have no drip. But few days ago, I irrigated my nose using mix of water/h202 and brushed way back my tonsils! Keeping the electronic brush to the sides so I wont gag. BOY, MIRACLE. I DID THIS BEFORE BED AND NEXT MORNING. NOW FOUL TASTE OR BAD BREATH. NOT EVEN MORNING BREATH. SO IT WAS FROM NOSTRILS AND TONSILS. I HOPE YOU WILL GIVE IT A TRY!

Hello Bama,

Recently someone posted here that they'd taken Diamataceoust Earth in water every day for 60 days and it really brought their cholesterol down Big time. Also herbs like nettle and dandelion which are bitter should help as they stimulate the liver As well as Swedish Bitters which ar said to help. However, you may like to consider the experiment discussed in various books on the great ' Cholesterol Con' in which they monitored several thousand women at the university of Paris for 3-4 years. All the women were between 55-75 years old and from similar backgrounds. To their surprise they discovered that for these post menopausal women( though not necessarily older men), those with the highest cholesterol, good or bad, survived chronic heart attacks whereas those with the lowest cholesterol did not survive! When I asked the Heart consultant at my nearby hospital what she thought of the research, she said it was very good and she believed the results were valid. She still wanted me to take statins though and got mad when I said no. Researchers like Dr Uffe RAVNSKOV in his various books gives a very clear explanation of the fallacy and possible dangers behind the cholesterol/ heart disease 'connectIon'. And there are others worth reading so at least you'd have a more balanced view of the pros and cons of the various arguments. Humans have lived for 1000s of years with cholesterol coursing through their veins without any trouble and we need it for many bodily functions from hormones etc. I understand your concern about losing your job, and I'm horrified to hear its legal/ethical to put you under such pressure for surely what should be a personal decision. would they not listen to alternative arguments and scientific research not funded by one of the Big Pharmas? However if you have no alternative, and I'm sure Timh will give you some very sound advice, and you may want to research Barley grass juice powder, magnesium deficiency and under active thyroid connection to cholesterol. I wish you the very best of luck.

Dear Bama,

Just a couple of dietary ideas to go along with TImh's great suggestions.

Eating oatmeal often is good to lower cholesterol.

My mother-in-law kept off cholesterol medication by eating raw carrots and salsa for a snack every day.

Metabolism slows with aging, so do take at least a good & basic Multivitamin/Mineral Supplement. There are good and not-so-good brands. For basics, availability, and affordability I like Nature Made brand. The multi will increase the amount of energy your cells produce in response to the food you eat. Also to improve metabolism supplement Coconut Oil, Kelp or Iodine for the Thyroid. ACV is also good for metabolism.

Cholesterol synthesis is the work of the liver so at least some basic liver support is important. Artichoke Leaf is a good one for improving liver function & increasing bile (which helps fat digestion). Red Yeast Rice is a natural statin that helps lower bad cholesterol produced by the liver.

For improving cholesterol or fat metabolism Lecithin may need the help of other companion nutrients like Choline/Inositol or Methionine/B-12/Folic Acid. Any of the Niacin nutrients is standard for reducing LDL.

High fiber diet is also important as it significantly decreases the work-load of the liver on excessive fats in the diet. Speaking of fats, it is very important to increase EFA's or Omega 3 FA's by taking a Flax or Fish Oil supplement, or increasing diet of Salmon, Mackerel, and Sardines.

Hoping to hear good news from you, Bama!
