 Re: Using Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth on Pets

Sat, 20 Dec 14 07:24:07 -0500

Posted by Peggy (Delbarton, WV US) on 12/20/2014

[YEA]  I was reading all the comments. I have used FOOD GRADE diatomaceous earth on all my dogs and cat for years. It eliminates worms, and handles the fleas. During the worst season for fleas I use it around my doors. I only use it on their wet food, not dry and just a pinch once a month. I have yet to see any ill effects from the use of Food Grade DE. Pool Grade is very dangerous for humans and animals, make certain you purchase Food Grade, I get mine at Tractor Supply.

 Re: Silent Reflux Linked to Sleep Apnea

Posted by Katerose (Minnesota, US) on 12/20/2014

I too have Laryngopharyngeal Reflux. I went to an Ear Nose and Throat specialist about 4-5 years ago due to the fact that I was losing my voice. Constant dripping of the nose and coughing all the time. Nexium seemed to work, but lately I am coughing more. I found out in the spring that I have sleep apnea too. Doing research, I found that the LPR can cause the apnea. I was waking up in the middle of the night having coughing fits. Finally went to a doctor who sent me in for a sleep study and now sleep peacefully!

 Have IBS - Supplements Causing Diarrhea Each Time I take Them

If you have never done any colon, parasite, or pathogen cleanses, then it will be imperative to do so as these can cause chronic digestive disorders. Treating the symptoms are currently only getting you thru the day and night. Look on either the "remedies" or "ailments" tabs here on E.C. for further info.

Post any further questions or updates for additional help, and good luck.

I suffered with cystitis for over 2 years and tried everything possible, then someone mentioned Bio-Organics High Potency Cranberry, currently selling in Australia :$35 for 60 actual chewable Cranberry.If I remember correctly they were 30 or 40 mgs each tablet.

I was working 9 hours a day on my feet and always carried some in my pocket. I would chew them day and night as needed and went through a box every 3 weeks but what a relief! After some 2 1/2 months suddenly I didn't have it anymore and haven't had it since and that was 5 years ago. I now make sure that I drink at least 2 litres of water a day to "flush out" my kidneys and to stay hydrated..stops the bugs from collecting in places they shouldn't..!

Actually whilst Manuka honey is excellent, ordinary raw honey will still do the same thing for a much cheaper alternative...but understand that honey has an enzyme within it that acts like hydrogen peroxide. and when applying it, it will burn, not literally... but will immediately attack the virus .Put onto clean cloths or dressings, a good smear and wrap like you'd normally do. Very important to leave on until the pain stops (for at least 3 days) and don't change the bandage until you are pain free. I used it once and took the bandage off after a couple of days and the skin underneath was like baby skin but it's only been since then that I've been told the correct way to do it...but the guy I buy my honey from in the bush, has heard of wonderful cures using honey.

So Manuka is best and the price matches the advertising that goes with this, but then ALL raw honey is antibacterial also. Hope this has helped...

 Re: Black Walnut for Impetigo

Reading your post about scabs, impetigo etc got me wondering about leg ulcers. I have had Cellulitis for quite awhile now and this continually causes ulcers to break out on the surface of my skin, even though I take supplements, which eventually heal the surface of the skin on top.. Where would I obtain Black Walnut tincture from?

EC: Hi, see various black walnut tincture brands on Amazon here.

Herman, I have asthma and was about to go on oxygen when I found this site. After 5 days of using Bill Monroe hp inhalation thearpy I'm much better. However I've kept a crock pot full of distilled water and 1 oz 35% hydrogen peroxide heating on high by my chair I believe that has helped too. Tomorrow I'm getting a cool air humidifier to add the hp as a nightime aid. I'm coughing and wheezing much less. This site has been of a real value to me. If I can't find 35% hp around here, I will order online. Good Luck

Hydrogen Peroxide Mixed with Sea Salt for Stuffy Sinuses

Fri, 19 Dec 14 20:52:14 -0500

Posted by Dwight (S. Florida, US) on 12/19/2014

I mixed sea salt and hydrogen peroxide and squirted in each nostril to try to relieve my stuffy sinuses. The solution is very uncomfortable and it remains in my sinuses until I repeat the process about 3 times.Only then will it start to come back out the same nostril and if I keep it up some will eventually come out the opposing nostril. It just seems to get soaked up there.

 Re: Bladder Prolapse Explanation

Fri, 19 Dec 14 20:44:55 -0500

Posted by Kt (Usa) on 12/19/2014

Hi De, I don't know if Joy is still available. I've tried to contact her through EC CS but never received a reply. The last she posted about her painful prolapse issue, I was dealing with mine. She posted about using Witch Hazel to "pull her bladder back up" or something similar and I was discovering that the "bladder prolapse" is actually stool accumulating and pushing against the vaginal wall. As soon as I could find her post about the problem, I tried to alert her to the fact that the "prolapse" was not her bladder. After I posted my findings, someone else posted in agreement with me.

Iodine Cured My Hot Flashes

Fri, 19 Dec 14 20:43:07 -0500

Posted by Elizabeth (California, US) on 12/19/2014

[YEA]  I have been meaning to post this for a while now. It's only right that I tell you about my results as I remember how miserable I was 6 months ago. About 1 year ago I started getting really severe hot flashes. I was a walking ember. No kidding, I would have one at least every hour if not more. I had to take a couple of showers a day. At night I would wake every hour drenched in sweat. I had 2 fans on me and still I woke up soaked. This went on for 5 months.

I tried all kinds of remedies like Vitamin E (which did a lot of very good things for my body, but nothing for the hot flashes), black cohosh, Chinese herbs, ACV and countless others. Nothing worked. I was so miserable and sleep deprived and at my wits end. It was unbearable. I was so close to resorting to hormones. Then one day I was cooking and accidently cut my finger so I went into the medicine cabinet and found my iodine. As I was applying it to my finger, I started to remember what iodine does...supports the thyroid which regulates hormones. So I painted a 6"x6" square over my stomach and it disappeared within 3 hours. I painted my arm which disappear pretty quickly as well and then that night I drank 5 drops of liquid kelp (ingestible iodine).

I only had 1 mild hot flash that night and slept through the night for the first time in 5 months. The next morning, I painted again and continued to drink the liquid kelp at night. I have not had one hot flash since and that's been about 6 months ago. I ordered Lugol's and I take it 3x's a week. Ladies, please don't discount a sluggish thyroid if you are having severe hot flashes. Try iodine before resorting to synthetic hormones. Iodine has been a lifesaver for me.

How Can I Tell if Castor Oil has Expired?

Fri, 19 Dec 14 20:39:42 -0500

Posted by G (Dublin, Ireland) on 12/19/2014

How can I tell if castor oil for taking internally has expired? I have a bottle of organic castor oil (from a trusted food brand) in the fridge for the past few years, with most of it still left. Its expiry date is for almost a year ago but I notice there is no rancid smell. The only thing that might be strange is that a small amount has sunk to the bottom and turned white - I don't know if that's from being stored in a cold fridge though, or means it should not be used?

You can LOWER your LDL! My cholesterol went from 294 (not food related) to 184 a few months later and now it is in the Normal range! The lowest after that was 162! Carrot Juice will work for everybody! At least an 8 oz glass a day will do it! Make your own or buy in any grocery store! I am having some as I'm writing this! Try it and you'll keep on having it! Carrot Juice does the body GOOD > Literally!

Have IBS - Supplements Causing Diarrhea Each Time I take Them

Fri, 19 Dec 14 17:43:50 -0500
Posted by Anonymous (Tennessee, US) on 12/19/2014

I feel really dumb saying this, but here goes: I have a very hard time doing all these things that I should/need to do. I get up and take acv, then prepare oatmeal. Run to the bathroom with diarrhea. Finish fixing my oatmeal (+lecethin granules + Virgin Coconut Oil + cinnamon), run to the bathroom again, eat my oatmeal, then take my astaxanthin + green tea extract + lysine, run to the bathroom again.....and so on all day. I take align at night, which works wonders for my ibs d, but I rarely find a supplement that doesn't aggravate it. How in the world do I manage to take supplements without getting the runs? This is chronic, over 20 years, and I was taking 12 immodium /day. Now down to maybe 5 a week. That's just my very early morning. At lunchtime it's pretty much the same thing. I work--I can't do this running back and forth, what if I don't make it? I am on no drugs other than immodium.

 Re: GAPS Diet for Candida

Posted by Whisperingsage (N California) on 12/19/2014

[YEA]  Gee, I always hold the Weston Price studies as a standard for ideal diets (book is now free online with the Gutenburg project), and these very high meat and fat eating healthy cultures never had problems with candida at all.

Also I know a lot of Phillipino people from work and they eat a lot of fish, not a lot of fruit. I enjoy their sharing quite a bit. I got hooked on their little salty whole fish. Eyes and guts and everything. (there's a lot of real vitamin A in those eyes.)

 Re: Apple Cider Vinegar for Cat

Posted by Lucia Maria (Pomona, New York) on 12/19/2014

I hope your cat is better...Try using the Apple Cider Vinegar on your cat, I did! About a 1/4 Teaspoon mixed with 1/2 teaspoon water mixed together and rub it on your cat's fur and your cat will lick it off. I rubbed Coconut oil on my cat's fur today, not that much but just enough and he licked it off. If Apple Cider Vinegar and Coconut Oil is good for people, it is also good for animals! I read up on this on this site first to make sure!

 Re: Remedies to Reduce Bad Cholesterol?

Carrot Juice! My cholesterol is now in the normal range, it went from 294 to 184 within a few months! My cholesterol is "not" food related! I posted this in the remedy section a couple of years ago. Not all pills work for everybody but I know Carrot Juice will! Carrot Juice worked for me and I know it will work for you. Take at least an 8 oz glass a day and if 8 oz. doesn't do it take a little bit more than that but it will definitley work! Make your own or buy it in the grocery store!

Tagamet for Cancer Metastasis

Cancer Metastasis

HI U GOOD FOLKS DOING, , , , , , , , , , , , this is a pass on from what I've read. All who are to have a biopsy or cancer surgery should understand that when a cancer tumor is disturbed, then the cells can move to other places in the body and start anew. I have many late friends whose doctor told them, " I think I got it all".

The lowly OTC drug, Tagamet, can help you with this problem. Read this.

Thank You...I'll give it a try but only if I have to! I hope that the migraines I've had in the past are now GONE for good and will NEVER come back! I have baking soda in my cabinet and refrigerator and I never use it! The Organic Apple Cider Vinegar I use practically everyday anyway because it is SO GOOD for so many different things! You're right, we should all help each other no matter what the situation is!

I can totally sympathize with what you're going through. In my line of work I'am on my feet all day, everyday. For the past three years I've been in constant pain. I have tried everything that my foot doctor recommended. The expensive foot insoles, cortisone shots and foot exercises. I feel like this is ruining and running my life. Nothing works. I use to be very active. Not anymore. Please tell me that the Apple cider vinager and baking soda has helped.
