 Re: Tips For Fibrocystic Breasts

I take kelp and evening primrose oil daily for my fibrocystic disease. It helps avoid my huge cyst from filling up with fluid. The last time I had it drained the doctor said I broke a record in how many syringes it took to drain... *7*! It was scary experience since I thought the huge swelling in my breast was cancer. Also it was VERY painful! EVENING PRIMROSE OIL + KELP TABs keep it from filling up! No more going to the doc to get it drained! Hope this helps!

Amazon sells it. Or a local health food store. Try taking one with breakfast and one with lunch.

I posted a reply earlier to another comment but I think the information would be relevant to you too so I am posting it again here.

There is some evidence that an elevated level of mercury in the body is connected with outbreaks. There are ways to lower your mercury levels . One way is to take the supplement IP6, but research this yourself as it also chelates iron. Elevated levels of free iron may also contribute to outbreaks as iron displaces zinc and copper. Zinc is known to suppress the Herpes virus so reducing iron and mercury may convert you over to someone who never has another outbreak. Cilantro, otherwise known as coriander, is another very effective substance for chelating mercury and lowering your levels.

From my initial infection and a few outbreaks after that I was outbreak free for over a decade. Then in my mid thirties I had cavities filled for the first time in my life. I had frequent and sometimes sever outbreaks after that for a number of years. At some point I started taking IP6 for general health/anti aging reasons. My outbreaks ceased after that. I did not make the connection till much later when I read about mercury levels and herpes.

I would also suggest taking zinc supplements as most people are deficient.

I have been diagnosed with TN for almost a year now. I am on tegretal and baclaven. The pain has become so bad that it is now interferring with eating. I an not cutting up my foods in very tiny pieces so I can more or less swallow without chewing. I am trying to stick to the soft foods as well, but sometimes even swallowing sets it off. Brushing my teeth often sends me through the roof. I cannot even kiss my husband anymore with triggering the pain. I have used the hot compresses with some relief. I read your comments on the vitamins and minerals. I think I will share them with my primary care physician. I am not on any type of pain meds (narcotics) as of yet.

1/4 teaspoon in 4 ounces water. Repeat once if that did not help. If that does not work, try another remedy, like peppermint tea.

 8 Year Old Daughter with Bloating and Constipation

Well stay away from snacks and starch is making the mucus. N acetyl cysteine should reduce mucus. Taken before sleep and no fried foods.

I hope things are improved for you Ted.

I also wanted to add that my daughter has a constant mucous plug in the throat and every morning she has to spit up. Mucous is whitish. She is over her ideal weight and is constantly looking for starchy snacks. If this helps with the previous question please advise. In the meantime I will add potassium and B6. She has no fever or cold.

Stay well. Susan

Dear Pamela,

If you take too much vitamin C, you will get diarrhea. In fact, if you are taking it to try and deal with an illness, you want to take the amount of vitamin C that is just below what will give you diarrhea. At this point, the body is just flushing it out because there is too much. But I can't imagine how it would cause more harm than good.

The only other issue with Vitamin C is that many vitamin C supplements have artificial sweeteners in them, which can be a problem for some.

I like to just get ascorbic acid powder. You can mix it with 1/2 part baking soda and take it in water.

I add 2 teaspoons of ascorbic acid powder and 1 teaspoon of baking soda into a half gallon jar. I then add a dropperful of stevia extract and 1/4 cup of lime or lemon juice and it makes a nice Vitamin C drink. I have a gallon of it sitting on my counter as I type for my family to drink today.

 Re: On Cayenne Pepper for Overall Health

Dear John 1974,

Did you buy cayenne powder? One thing you can do is just put some in a pepper shaker and add it to food. Over time you will increase your tolerance and be able to add more.

Another option is to add 1/4 teaspoon to some juice (4-6 ounces) once or twice a day. I use a straw when I drink this otherwise the cayenne can burn the lips.

Cayenne is awesome to have on hand for a sore throat. If used at the beginning of a sore throat (or cold that begins with a sore throat) gargling with it every few hours for a day or two will often knock out the infection. It also helps a lot with the pain. I add 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne and 1/4 teaspoon salt to 4 ounces of water and gargle. (Put some chap stick or something on your lips before gargling to avoid burning the lips.) It is super spicy but wow, it works so well.

Cayenne is also awesome if you get a cut that won't stop bleeding. After cleaning the wound you can pack it with cayenne. A friend did this with a bad cut and went to the hospital to get stitches. The ER doctor wanted to know how they got such a bad cut to stop bleeding! It stings at first but that does not last and often helps with the pain.

And yes, cayenne is great for the circulatory system and for the heart. When my husband would have arrhythmia problems, he would take a couple of capsules of cayenne, hawthorne and ginger and it would always help.

Cayenne will also help to warm you up. You can take it in juice when you are cold.

Dear Chris,

I would use castor oil on the blemishes once or twice a day. You could make a mixture of half castor oil and half extra virgin coconut oil, if you want it to be less greasy. Both are healing for the skin.

 Re: Natural Cure for Insomnia, Niacinamide

Posted by Robert Henry (Ten Mile, Tn) on 03/05/2015

HI U Timh, , , , , , , , , your posts of niacin and niacin amide are right on, but I fear some folks don't realize that these are two different compounds. One, as you say, is to clean out your blood vessels by dilating your capillaries which allows more blood into the cells. In his book Ron L. Hubbard used the niacin flush and saunas to detox his lSD buddies from the 60's.

We starting using niacin amide when the U of Calif at Erving published their study how they cleared alzheimers in mice in a few months. They stated that humans were next, but that study will never happen.

For our sleep, we drink a cup of hot Jasmine Green Tea with a scoop of Magnesium L Threonate. It calms you down and does not mess up your bowels. I appreciate the tip about niacinamide for sleep and will try that.

Squeezing Method For Hemorrhoids

Thu, 05 Mar 15 10:17:06 -0500
Posted by Sheila (Indiana) on 03/05/2015

[YEA]  You people are going to think I am crazy, but here is something worked when I had a hemorrhoid. I am very private about things going on in that area, so I was very hesitant about going to the doctor. I had read on the internet about how the doctors lapped a rubber band around the roid to stop the blood flow, so since mine was external and I could reach it, I just squeezed on it as hard as I could whenever I took my shower. I figured that would be as close to the rubber band as I could get. Surprisingly, it shrunk and went away.

Herpetic Neuralgia Remedies

Thu, 05 Mar 15 10:14:40 -0500
Posted by Tessa (Nyc) on 03/05/2015

[YEA]  I contracted herpes in my 30s about 18 years ago and have suffered from postherpetic neuralgia ever since. I found that meds - such a Lyrica or gabapentin - are a nightmare (the horrific side effects outweigh any benefits). I have reduced my pain (arms and legs), which was once severely acute and constant, to either nonexistent or occasional and mild simply by doing the following:

(1) I avoid foods that are high in arginine (nuts, seeds, chocolate, especially), which can lead to excruciating bouts for me. Dairy is helpful (high in lysine). I remain aware of lysine versus arginine ratios in my diet, tipping the scale toward more lysine. I eat lots of vegetables, leafy greens, and some meat (lamb is high in lysine) -I keep it organic/free range.

(2) The real miracle cure for me: I take spirulina every morning (1000 mg).

(3) I do as much yoga as I can (yin yoga is especially great during bouts - something about stretching and breathing). I get acupuncture (but never during a bout because that will make it more acute).

(4) Try not to get too stressed out. Avoid an abundance of sun. Avoid getting overtired or overexerted (e.g., pushing myself beyond an athletic limit - as in running too long).

It's taken me a long time to figure it all out, so I wanted to pass it along. :)
