[YEA]  Definitely. My sister read anything she could find on LS and our mother had thyroid problems, thyroid removal and in later life developed chronic crohns disease. Poor immune system.

Dear Agnes,

We have seen hydrotherapy significantly reduce swelling, especially when used frequently. I love this remedy because it is so simple and it is free!

I am not sure what you are asking with your question about sucking some liquid.

[YEA]  Greetings everybody. I would like to add some thing here from my personal experience with Himalayan Salt:

Fill a jar to 1/4 with this pink salt and fill with water. For 18 hours, leave this jar in the sun. After that it's a remedy to take out any disease in epilepsy. Give the child half a teaspoon of this made liquid.

It will draw out toxins, strengthen his brain nerve cells, and clear out the entire nervous system and reinstall it.

keep taking epsom salt n himalayan salt baths. With it too in sha allah with gods help in 3 months the patient should be out of danger permanant.

Plz update me whdn ur child get better thanks god bless all

  Food Grade Peroxide - More Questions for Brendan

Hi Brendan, my name is John. Can you tell me your honest opinion of something? I see that you've been using H2O2 therapy for several months now. I've read all of your posts. I've read all of the benefits you mentioned in your life by taking H2O2 water and that your health is better than ever now. But with all of your use of H2O2, can I ask if lately, do you still have any "problematic health symptoms" - anything at all? Like headache, chest pain, nausea, any physical pain or discomfort, eye or hearing problem, food addiction, etc etc - whether regular or occassional. In your opinion, do you feel that taking H2O2 eliminated literally all of your health problems and now you are perfectly healthy?

Check for LPR With Recurring Strep Infection

Wed, 26 Aug 15 21:45:57 -0500
Posted by Josh (Wien, Austria) on 08/25/2015

[YEA]  I had recurring strep infections for years. I was looking for the cause of this but doctors just said some people are prone to this bacteria.

Then one doctor mentioned that recurring strep infections are caused by LPR reflux - (see wikipedia LPR)

Basically it means if your tonsils get damaged by stomach acid they are sensitive to be infected -

More symptoms are recurring sinusitis, states like panic attack, coughing, asthma symptoms. When I started looking for more information I learned about the so called "silent reflux" -

Check LPR reflux - eat small portions of food, avoid gluten as much as you can and mostly baked bread because it is hard for the stomach digestion.

Hopefully more doctors get aware of the real cause of this.

Now I get about 1 infection in 3-5 years. Then it was about 3 per year.

Wish you good health!

Cayenne Pepper for Strep Throat

Posted by Mae (Portland) on 08/26/2015

[YEA]  Always know when I am getting strep throat. Read about cayenne and decided to try it. Within 24 hours my white spots in the back of my throat were gone! I used raw honey - dipped a q-tip in that and rolled it in cayenne pepper powder. Swabbed it on the back sides of my throat every few hours for 2 days. In between I gargled with cayenne and warm water. About a tsp. This is the third day and my strep is almost gone!!!! Really works but you have to keep at it for the first days .

Once again about charcoal - have you tried it on wounds, cuts, scratches? - all these sites without epidermis where there is a a risk of getting tattooed permanently with charcoal?

HI U DAVE, , , , , , , , , I have used this term all my life and really did not know what it meant . I have researched and it originally was a term of endearment and that's how I use it. Just like when I call you my buddy.

Of late, it means something else. I will stick to the old version and hope all think likewise. Lordy, how folks are revising our history!!!!!

HI U DAVE, , , , , , , , , , , yep, you using liniment that was concocted for horses. I found it on the internet.

Dr. Jacobs , the father of DMSO, says that horses don't know about double blind studies so if they feel good then they run, otherwise, they don't. Our medical field is so stupid , it's not funny any longer.

I congratulate you on your contribution to common folks health. I know you not suppose to call folks, common, but we got got a bunch in this country. I now think my job is to keep folks entertained so they will read and help themselves.

I'm pretty smart , but not in the league with you and others.


  Re: Cellulitis Treatment

Posted by Agnes (Warsaw) on 08/26/2015

Dear Mama,

Treating my cellulitis bears some problem when it comes to treating as it is complicated by my general skin sensivity. Baking soda made my skin dried out and some rash appeared so I look for another option for swelling remedy. I'm disappointed tha tit takes a lot of time to cure it and I wonder if this swelling does not last too long as I started to feel coolness in this hand and more numbness, I start panicking that some nerve damage begins to develop, sometimes even thoughts about gangrene come to my mind. I read that it may develop from cellulitis. Can you tell me if hydrotherapy is good for getting rid of swelling or just it improves lymph circulating? Is it necessary to "suck" some liquid causing swelling physically with aid of charcoal? I'm very grateful for your care.

How much of each do you use and how much water? I have the oral thrush throat issues bothering me and feels like a gagging, clogging feeling. I tried salt water gargle, Raw Apple Cider Vinegar and warm water gargle and to no advantage. But I do have every thing in house that you mentioned - I just can't do the honey as of yet till I know my system is back in full balance.I'm.not allowed any honey or sugar of any type.

  Re: EC Should Be Preventive Health Site

Wed, 26 Aug 15 18:03:04 -0500
Posted by Green Augustine (Mold, Denbighshire) on 08/26/2015


Thats a great idea! It's all about education and knowledge but I guess the big Pharmas and food producers prefer us to be ignorant! I love reading - and came across Dr Franz Meyr, an Austrian doctor who died in 1965 and was really shocked at what he saw- doctors prescribing only for illness and never for good health. Here in Britain I believe medical students study 5 hours of nutrition in a 6 year course!!! Go figure as they say! In 'The Magnesium Miracle' by Dr Carolyn Dean, she quotes a speaker from the National Institute of Health - their " guidelines on RDA for nutrients is only to prevent deficiency diseases like scurvy etc and .... NIH has no interest in supplements for the prevention and treatment of disease. " Well, I guess that sort of says it all.

And it is sad to read some people on this site who want help for families and yet know the family will reject any non " medical" interventions however much positive evidence there is to support them. When I was at school back in the 60s, we had a 3 hour weekly lesson on what was called Domestic Science where we learnt all the different food categories as in protein, vitamins etc and which foods contained what. We also had to plan and cook a well balanced healthy and economical meal, usually 2 courses, every week which we then took home for our families. This programme lasted from when I was 11 to 16 years old so was a very good base knowledge and fired up my interest in food and nutrition, ( and later organic vegetable/ fruit gardening). But now that doesn't happen, they just have to learn to design a food poster or make a pizza with packaged food.

We have come too far from nature sadly but it sounds like you really love your garden and grow some interesting stuff! What do you do with the peanuts once you've boiled them?? Not that I can grow them here in the hills of beautiful North Wales, but I'm curious. I always reads your posts as you come across as really positive and I always end up smiling. So thanks for that. And I do hope your fight with your health goes well and you're winning! I think this site is brilliant and there are quite a few posts suggesting what has helped people stay healthy too. But so many people are frightened of challenging their doctor's ideas and, over here at least, few doctors are happy if you tell them what you've read or discovered that differs from the established theory about different ailments, they seem to prefer you to be dumb and compliant ( although some of them are open minded).

Are you suggesting that there could be a section in EC called something like " how to stay healthy" as well as all the help for ailments? I think so many people are confused by what's on sale in the supermarkets and touted as healthy when it's just processed junk But there are also lots of people now questioning what's being described as healthy and trying to learn what is. Let's hope that just continues to grow, like your peanuts:-}. Ps What is a patoot?

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.
