Bromine, Fluorine, Chlorine & Iodine are all in the class on the periodic table. Iodine is what our bodies need in every cell and it is especially important to the Endocrine system, Thyroid etc. The other 3 elements take the place of Iodine in numerous situations in our bodies and we suffer ... So your 21st century likely has Chlorine from water, bleach etc, Bromine from Bleached Flour, fire retardents etc, Fluorine from toothpaste mouthwash and so forth all of which will be pushed out when you take in Iodine so you have to do it slowly over time so the boidy can eleminate.

The fastest remedy for urinary tract infections I have tried.
I am amazed that cream of tartar is not included in the list of remedies for UTI's.
I have been hounded by them for years but last year I had an incredibly bad time with them recurring, particularly in the summer when I was perspiring a lot in our intense heat. I would drink copious amounts of water to counteract this but would often end up with a weekly infection anyway.
I tried cranberry tablets, D-Mannose, apple cider vinegar without quick success. It usually took a week or longer of treatment to feel as though I was OK. Then, I found one post in my internet search, by a lady who suggested cream of tartar. As I have it in my pantry, that was an easy one. 1/2 tsp in a glass of water stopped the infection and ALL the symptoms dead. With the cream of tartar, the pain and discomfort, brain fog, disorientation and weakness, etc. all vanished WITHIN MINUTES.
With most remedies, they work for some and not for all, I agree. However, my husband started to get the burning sensation one night after not drinking as much water that day and I suggested he take the cream of tartar. Within minutes he was comfortable and that was the end of the UTI for him. He was amazed.
A few days ago I heard my sister had a serious infection with blood in the urine, brain mush as she calls it, weakness, etc. She had been suffering for four days, although she was taking many of the remedies mentioned here. She was no longer passing blood but still had all the other symptoms. I told her about this remedy and suggested she at least try it as she had nothing to lose. So, she popped down to the local supermarket and paid $3.75 for 125g (how cheap is that for something that works! ) She was totally amazed that her symptoms also left and she could go back to work with a clear mind - no more fog.
You only take it when you feel the symptoms appear, not as a preventative.
This is now our go-to remedy for UTI's.
Judging by the comments here, it is a shame that most people have not heard about this SENSATIONAL remedy. Nothing else has worked as fast as it does for us!! Most people I have known in the past with these infections, have to take other treatments for days or weeks before they start to feel well again.
If you have tried everything else, without success, or your favorite remedy is slow to work, you might like to give the speedy, but humble cream of tartar a try.
It is an old remedy used frequently for various diseases, by doctors before big pharma showed up.
Why do you heat this? I would think it would be more effective not heated. I've seen the same recipe made both ways, heated and not heated. Is there a good reason to heat it? Or is it just for a milder garlic taste?
I think this recipe is fairly well-known/common, but I thought I would share it here because I use it every time I get an ear infection (which is not that often), and it has cured me of all of them since I discovered it. One time several years ago I got a strange blister-like cyst in my ear canal, and this recipe cured that and brought almost immediate relief to the pain as well. The recipe is very simple: just combine equal parts of vinegar (I use regular white/yellow vinegar, but probably any kind would do), and Rubbing alcohol (70-90%), and put a drop in each ear and let it run down into the ear canal. When I had the strange cyst thing, I got a Q-tip soaked in the alcohol/vinegar mixture and then pressed it gently against the bump in my ear canal. Like I said, it felt better almost instantly, after having bothered me for weeks. That's when I first tried this recipe. Since then I have cured several other ear infections (including one my boyfriend had, who also said his ear felt better immediately). Both ingredients in the mix kill germs and the alcohol also has a drying effect, which I think is important if you have fluid build-up in the ear from the infection or swimming, etc.
I have Irritable bowel syndrome (Spastic colon) and I get sinus infections at least once a year.
My doc always prescribes antibiotics for my SI's and every time I take them, I spend too much time in the bathroom. I recently came across your site and tried the ACV for my sinus infection:
I am using three-four drops of ACV, 1/2 tsp of baking soda (to take the edge off of the ACV) and warm water in my neti pot. I do this three times a day and I am planning to do this for five days.
The first day was harsh, but the second day of treatments was less harsh. I am now on my third day of treatments. I am not a 100% better, but I am feeling more better than I did before when I was on antibiotics. This is more effective and faster than antibiotics. I plan to do the ACV health drink after my SI's is over with. Thanks for this helpful information, You saved me a trip to the doctor, lots of bathroom time and some money. Thanks again.
Rose Canada - I have the same problem once in a while when I use the Boric Acid. I get my period full blown even when I am not due. I am on birth control to and am usually regular. I was using 300mg before and switched to 600mg I wonder if it is too strong for me. Anyone else have this problem? The Boric Acid is the only thing that has helped me with chronic BV and yeast.
I have made many batches of colloidal silver over the last couple of years with my generator. I have had great results making it and with it helping a variety of conditions.
A stomach bug is going is going around the community so I was making a batch so we could take it for prevention. I didn't have much distilled water so I used 1 pint of distilled water and 1 pint of a gallon of spring water that was left over from when I was traveling recently.
When my colloidal silver was "done" it had all kinds of large flakes of stuff in the bottom. (Usually my colloidal silver comes out clear.) I was bummed that it didn't turn out but didn't want to use it internally. I strained it and put it into a spray bottle to use for spraying doorknobs and light switches and stuff.
I suspect that the spring water I had wasn't very pure and that something in it reacted with the silver rods of the generator. Today I found another gallon of distilled water in my house and made a new batch of colloidal silver and it turned out perfectly clear as I had hoped.
So for me, the moral of the story is: use distilled water to make colloidal silver, at least at first. Then perhaps try your filtered water or well water if you like and if you get the same great results, wonderful. If not, go back to distilled.
Rose, I had the same experience with Peptogest. Thought I was going to die and it took several hours to calm the stomach down. Point is that it was supposed to open in the small intestine and it did not. I have no lesions in my stomach, so I do not think that is your problem. I do not have any problems with IB GUARD from the drug store. I just wish there was an exact answer and protocol for SIBO. It is hell on earth for sure. I am a vegetarian for most of my life, so can not do the bone broth, but that seems to be a help for most "normal" folks. I will keep trying, what else can we do?
I am writing here to make sure I can get out the remedy that worked for me. I am not saying this is the perfect cure as it may not work for everyone but I definitely want everyone to know my situation/history and what has worked.
I have been suffering with systemic yeast issues for over 5 years which seem to present themselves as yeast infections, symptoms of yeast infections even when there is no infection, fatigue, brain fog, sleeplessness, rashy feeling in my skin esp in the legs, feet, hips, back and joints. About 8 months ago I started something called the GAPS diet along with an anti-candida diet to heal both my leaky gut (the main issues I've been told) and the yeast overgrowth.
About 2 months ago I got a yeast infection from sex with my boyfriend. I was devastated as I had been on the GAP/Candida diet for 6 months even though I know it can take anywhere from a year to two years to really heal the body. It was tough. So...I went to the doctor, they swabbed and confirmed yeast. They did the typical treatment..diflucan. I took it even though I hadn't touched a pill or chemical in 6 months. Just to be safe I also got OTC 3 day monistat. A week later I'm still feeling bad and I'm back at the drs with another swab and confirmed yeast. They gave me more...diflucan and pretty much shrugged (this was not a gyno, just a GP). They told me to take one and then another one 3 days later. So I did. At this point I was sure that the diflucan probably wasn't going to work so I started researching. After talking with my boss, who is also a good friend, she suggested tea tree oil tampons which actually worked for her BV and her wife's yeast infection. So I did that for 3 days and didn't feel any better. I then decided to try boric acid suppositories which I have used in the past for BV succesfully. I filled 00 capsules with boric acid and inserted once in the morning and at night. Felt better for the first few days and then on day 5 and 6 I started feeling worse. This could have been die-off, not really sure but I switched methods at this point. My boyfriend and I had a cruise coming up and I was desperate to feel better.
I started reading about Grapefruit Seed Extract and found a way to use it on a tampon online. Here is what I ended up doing after some trial and error. This worked for me and in fact eliminated most of the symptoms during the treatment aside from just feeling swollen down there I actually did this our entire cruise and didn't suffer much.
1. I melted about 1/2 tbsp of coconut oil in a small glass jar (BALL baby food jars work great). Do this on the stove or using a hair dryer aimed under the glass jar not in it (did that on the cruise since there wasn't a stove and it worked great). Do not use the microwave.
2. I added 8-10 drops of GSE and mixed well. **Just FYI, these oils really don't mix and you will see the GSE settle in little oil balls on the bottom of the jar. This is ok.** Also you will need to adjust the dosage to meet your needs. If 8 irritates you try less drops or start with 5 and work your way up. I was fine with this amount.
3. Take a Super Tampon in a cardboard applicator (very important it's cardboard). Remove the tampon and keep just the applicator. Take a regular tampon and put it in the cardboard applicator and thread the string through the bottom so it looks like a normal tampon where the applicator is just a little over sized. This will allow the tampon to expand as you add the oils.
4. Carefully and slowly drip or pour in very small amounts of the coconut oil/GSE mixture. Allow time for the amounts to absorb. This is going to take a minute or two. I got to where I could do it as a slow steady drip. If you pour too fast you'll end up with the oil just running out of the bottom of the tampon and it'll be messy. The last to go on will be the GSE oil which is good because it will be right at the tip. Be careful not to go too slow so the applicator doesn't get soaked and soggy. It takes a little practice but you'll get it quickly.
5. Once all oil is on the tampon (there may be some dripping out of the bottom, if so don't worry just get it in), you will insert it. **FYI...sometimes a little oil will seep out of the bottom when you insert. For this reason I would make sure you aren't standing over something, like clothes or good rugs. Best to do with pants off standing in the bathroom on tiled floor if possible. Wear a panty liner during the day
6. Change this out every 7-8 hours for about 14 days. I am not sure if it is needed for 14 days but that's how long I did it for.
At the end of treatment I went to an actually gyno and had a swab and labs done. My swab came up yeast free and the labs just came back yesterday and I am clear of all the yeast strains they tested for (albicans, glabrata, tropicalis, Parapsilosis, Krusei). The dr told me I obliterated everything in there. They found no yeast and no bacteria at all.
Right now I am doing suppositories of coconut oil and 50 billion probiotics. I Mixed 1/2 CO with 1 50 billion capsule and poured it into 1/2 tbsp molds to insert each night to make sure the good bacteria is what grows back after the decimation of everything. I plan to do this for 5-7 days to repopulate the good guys.
I just read about black walnut tincture and ordered it from iHerb.com (Green Black Walnut Hull Tincture) and received the bottle today. I got few questions:
- My son just turned 2 and he has enamel hypoplasia (from birth) in his four upper teeth. Those teeth look quite bad, but other teeth seem to be good (except one of his molars that maybe seems to have white spot=early decay?). He is scheduled to have a surgery in local anaesthesia in about one month. They are going to either extract them or fill them and probably to put crown to his molar.
- Is it possible to repair his teeth with black walnut tincture? Is one month too short time?
- How can he use the product? He can't swish it.
- What about the dosage?
- I read somewhere it can't be used for more than 2 weeks? That it could harm your good gut bacteria / be toxic?
- Are there any side effects with black walnut tincture and the anaesthesia? Should I stop the use long before that? Should I ask the doctor about this? But they are definitely gonna say no about the using it at all...
- What about the alcohol content in tincture (1:0.68)? Can I give that for a little child?
I have been using baking soda as toothpaste twice a day for a couple years. I can say hands-down that it is the best toothpaste I have ever used. Not only during the first few weeks did my teeth get whiter, but when I go in for cleanings, they are so much quicker and easier to clean because there isn't as much plaque.
No pain from chainsaw wound with aloe vera and arnica. This is written 14 hours later 6:52 am November 29, 2016
Yesterday at 3:45 pm I was cut by a chain saw in between my ring and second finger. The owner of the house put juice from the aloe vera plant I just happened to have because me and my cat have been taking father romano zago's formula and am on the second ten day period of the on aloe cycle. Took 3 arnica tablets. The juice oozed out freely and he put a gauze pad on top and in two hours changed the bandage. I think the gauze stuck and it started bleeding. This time put a slice of the plant on top of the wound which was rough cut and a gauze pad on top of that. The only pain I have had is when the aloe touched the wound.
Took two more arnica tablets and have had nothing since. It is 6:46am the 29th and I still have absolutely no pain. The bandage has not been changed again yet and have taken no more arnica. I later remembered reading the history of aloe vera. It was given as gifts to ancient monarchs to use for soldiers' wounds so I felt that I had indeed done the correct thing. It should have had many stitches.
I am writing this with my bandage on to record this so I don't forget, and stretching to reach the keys as little as possible to hit the keys. Still no pain.
I have paresthesia all over my body constantly and palma christi castor oil helps alot. I rub it on the bottom of my feet then put on socks. I've seen a neurologist and had all kinds of test done and they have all come back normal. He wanted to put me on medication for the pain, I declined. Ive tried super b-complex and b12 which works as well.
