I would like to know how you applied the helichrysum oil. (Where and how much) Daily or how many times a day. My daughter recently had a baby and Bells Palsey showed up about 3 weeks prior to birth. I was told this oil would help.

Turmeric for Folliculitis

Wed, 26 Aug 15 11:48:03 -0500
Posted by Chaka (Southeast Louisiana) on 08/26/2015

[YEA]  I diagnosed myself with scalp folliculitis about a month ago. No, I'm not a doctor, but this condition is not rocket science. This diagnosis came after 3-4 months of constant itching and scratching little infected bumps on the very back of my scalp (about even with mid-ear, but in the back). I cannot see them, but I can feel them and the irritation and urge to scratch is insane!

About a week ago, I read about turmeric for the first time. About that time, I put a dab of my steroid anti-itch ointment on the area about three times.

Four days ago, on 8/22/15, I bought inexpensive turmeric capsules. I was a little leary of not buying some fancified turmeric, but being desperate for relief, I just went with what was available to me instantly.

I have taken one 500 mg. capsule two or three times a day, with meals, every day from the 23rd to the 26th.

Even though I take each capsule with 8-16 ounces of water and with a full tummy, the capsule SOMETIMES leaves an aftertaste and SOMETIMES feels like it did not make it all the way down the pipe.

Results at day 3: 50% less itching. It does not feel like any of the bumps are inflamed. It does not feel like I have any new bumps to scratch. 40% less pre-occupation with the back of my head and what's going on beneath the hair back there.

I do not believe that the few dabs of my prescription anti-itch ointment "cured" my folliculitis.

Maybe it is the "placebo effect, " but I believe, so far, the turmeric has helped. I will try to remember to post periodic updates.

Good luck to all who are struggling with scalp folliculitis.

Hello Kimberly, I was wondering how bad your condition was before the castor packs. In my case I have ridges and "ropes" that never go away the entire month and have been there for years.

However you spell that ... and what ever a patoot is...

I do use store bought liniments. I don't use colloidal silver for relief of pain...but it could have that effect IF the pain were the secondary result of infection. I believe of course that CS is killing the infection. I have a liniment I bought at the old Feed and Seed store out in the country that seems to work well on inflammation issues... called Bigeloil. That has worked to reduce inflamation in a few cases.

I am a big fan of poultices for both pulling out toxins and putting in wanted ingredients. I use charcoal for the former and DMSO for the latter.

Pat, I have to believe that Vit C and Mag are the 2 most absolutes for controlling AF.

At least for my situation, no PACs since Dec, so I stopped both for 1 week, and wham, flutter was back strong. No issues since I tried that in May. ND put me back on iodine, ALA, and adk to get thyroid under control. He told me that everyone in this country is seriously lacking Iodine and D, even in sunny areas. I have complained about a root canal as the culprit to no avail. It doesnt bother me or have pain, but it wasnt long after I had this done that Afib started. I say everything is on the table and question why my thyroid all of a sudden was impacted. I believe that is why the C is working, removing "garbage" from my system. I really do need that tooth however, so maybe building up my immune system to deal with the bacterium it produces. I don't know how anyone tolerates Flec. Thats one serious med. I'd be supplementing up seriously on that one especially muscle hydration.

If the strabismus is fully accommodative then simply wearing a full spectacle prescription will straighten the eyes.

[NAY]  Colour deficiencies are caused by a lack of, or poor-performance of, one or more of the light receptive cells in the eye. This is caused by a faulty gene and therefore cannot be reversed.

Some people can develop colour deficiencies in later life, caused by neurological conditions such as optic neuritis or issues with the patient's lens (such as a cataract)

Posted by Mmsg (Somewhere, Europe) on 08/26/2015

Bryan T., I don't know what to tell you about vinegar, I have trouble with the smell, so I tried everything else out there. Since mine was growing, even after two years of trying everything, I caved in and had it removed (and have a nice scar to show for it...). But when all is said and done, the only things that seemed to make any positive difference to me, was: green clay, and very short applications of baking soda (any longer, was too painful). The green clay never hurt but works verrrry slowly and this thing was just atop the bridge of my nose, so it was socially awkward to walk around with a green blob on my face.

That cold liquid is nitrogen.

I have fought these keratosis and have gotten rid of all of them once my rubbing castor oil on them once a day. It took about 6 months and one day I just noticed they were all gone. Castor oil is very oily so if you try this wear an old tshirt or something you don't care about getting oil on. I have bought some wart remover and I'm going to see if that will work. I dislike the way they look but mine itch like crazy and I'm tired of having them.

  Re: Try Different Remedies for Migraines

My girlfriend of a year and a half has been getting migraines since she was a child (also when getting her cycle). Early on in our relationship I suggested she take an all natural approach to curing her migraines. After doing some research online we found a few herbs and vitamins known to help alleviate migraine headaches. A few of which were mentioned above. I recommend trying as many ways (without bad side effects) as you can. Migraines are not fully understood yet, and each person has different migraine triggers; so you never know which remedy will work best for you!

[YEA]  It's so potent, strong taste, it's suggested to take half the size of a pea in a capsule or piece of tissue.Some people say slippery elm is important in addition to protect stomach.It's important to get one with a good reputation of where the source comes from & check ingredients carefully.Get a professional medical opinion before & after treatment to be sure cure will be & was really effective & gone.

Need Advice for Tumors in Lymph Nodes After Testicular Cancer Treatment

Wed, 26 Aug 15 11:04:04 -0500
Posted by Mick (Sydney, Australia) on 08/25/2015

Hi all,

Hoping that someone can help me to think straight about my current problem.

I was recently diagnosed with testicular cancer and although a big proponent of natural cures I took the medical option of having my testicle removed and followed with chemo due to metastasis to the lymph nodes in my abdomen.

The only reason I made that choice was due to my research that of three cancers that respond very well to chemo, testicular cancer was one and has over 95% cure rate for life. I might have chosen a different route if I knew that the cancer had spread but was only told this as I was being taken in for surgery.

Long story short, chemo was horrendous but my bloods now show that the cancer is dead. (I also took cannabis oil to deal with the chemo and the cancer and all of my specialists were amazed at the rate of cancer cell death and my tolerance to the chemo.)

Anyway, now my urologist wants to remove the lymph nodes in my abdomen because they have not shrunk enough. He says that it may just be scar tissue but could also harbor stray cancer cells which could spread further.

This is major surgery with many possible complications and my thinking is that I could continue to have monitoring tests, but treat myself with Budwig therapy/Cannabis oil until the tumors shrink away.

My urologist wants me to have this surgery NOW and I am hoping that someone here that has had a similar experience could maybe share their thoughts.

I really appreciate you reading this and want to thank all on here for their wonderful contributions.


  Re: Dishwashing Liquid and Borax For Hair Growth

Posted by Hisjewel (America, New York) on 08/25/2015

I lost a lot of hair last year, I lost a lot of hair last year after pneumonia, antibotics and then a uti. cutting out the sugar did not make my hair grow back. so I tried washing my hair in dish washing liquid twice this summer. I also tried the borax three times. Both leave the hair and scalp squeeky clean. I had read that the dish washing liquid would remove build up and it seems to have done that. But my hair has had very little growth even though I have used some oils and vitamins such as biotin. I will say I like the borax over the dishwashing liquid because it leaves the hair soft even before it is conditioned.

What if you made the cinnamon/honey weight-loss tea? You take 1/2 tsp. Ceylon cinnamon (available online) and let it steep for 1/2 hour covered. Then add 1 tsp. raw honey (also available online). Drink it right before bed. Actually, you're supposed to drink half at night and the other half in the morning after you refrigerate it overnight. Try that method. You don't want to ingest a straight teasponful because, as I understand it, it could be harmful to the liver that way.

It is not well known, but in addition to b vitamins, the body is also depleted of minerals, specifically magnesium and potassium. The muscle tightening sensation is a lack of magnesium, and potassium also helps with muscle cramps and nervous issues. This is why the apple cider vinegar works in providing those trace minerals, but you can take a 100 mg of magnesium, and a 100 mg potassium. We are all different, so some need more magnesium and potassium to get fast results. It works better taking them separately, than having them combined in one tablet.

Could My Rhinitis Symptoms Be Mycoplasma?

Wed, 26 Aug 15 10:51:50 -0500
Posted by Smith8577 (Alabama, Usa) on 08/25/2015

I have been having extreme pressure behind my eyes for 2 weeks, with bad headaches, swollen turbinates inside my nose causing the pressure I am sure, tear ducts are swollen. I am extremely fatigued. Swelling under my eyes. Extremely dry inside nose, gritty eyes.

I have tried neti pot, otc, steroids, antibiotics to little relief. No mucus, no watery eyes so this is confusing me. I tested positive for mycoplasma, could this be causing these horrible symptoms? Please anyone know what this could be?

Pain Helpers for Interstitial Cystitis

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  Pain Erasers for IC:

I have had interstitial cystitis for 35 years, what a blessing....not! I read an article that they think it is caused when you have sex cause you are not born with it so it is a bug. They said there are 3 medicines that help it, not cure it but calm it down is doxycycline 100 mg 2 tablets a day, one in am, one in pm (which is the best of the 3, the other two are augmentin, ) so I use it and it will make you feel so good at first then it levels out and at least gets rid of the pelvic pain.

I found that yeast cream the cheapy stuff works when I have a flare/infection on top of an infection. I have tried the apple cider deal and I thought I was going to die with pain.

Everyone is right, quit the sugar (do honey if you must), no flour of any kind, no sodas of any kind, no preservatives, and the acidic fruit. I also read it gets WORSE as you age and I can attest to that! Watch what kind of soap you use as well. It is a prison sentence but some things definitely help. I am trying the cabbage and colloidal silver next!

Good luck to all of you, if men got it in greater numbers, there would be a cure by now!! It's like ulcers were years ago, they blamed it on stress and it took them 50 years to figure out it was a bug! Sure hope we do not have to suffer another 50 years!
