[SIDE EFFECTS]  Thank you so much for posting. I have been using a topical steroid for my Pruigo Nodularis and have developed severe skin damage -- yet another skin issue! I will talk to my doctor about Valtrex immediately. I have been taking Prednisone on and off for the last year and that provides temporary relief. As soon as I come off , I start the burning and itching again. I am also taking 150 mg of Imuran since the middle of August. I don't see any difference.

Definitely agree with the other posters in this thread... be on the safe side and see a specialist who will take a culture to give you a definitive diagnosis of what it is. I had a friend who smelled so bad, she left behind an odor after riding in my car for only ten minutes. I urged her to see a gyno. Once she finally did she was diagnosed with an STD (I forget now what it was...) and it was easily treated. If left untreated these things can cause serious harm. If it turns out to be BV, I've read that Borax capsules (make them yourself) inserted into the vagina for a week or 2 is helpful. I would also take high dose probiotics.

Excellent info! Can't thank you enough Bill!

Do you think one needs to do a pre-cleanse of any sort prior to doing both the Castor Oil + Turp intestinal flush, and the LI, Borax, Alkalizing protocols (for cleaning out the entire body)?

I'm not suffering from any major symptoms, and I'm not constipated. My biggest complaints would be cravings for sweets, and not having enough energy throughout the day. However, I recently came to realize that a fungus or something was lurking in my system when I started taking several supplements as outlined by you and Ted for IGH (Idiopathic Guttate Hypomelanosis, aka white spots)... had an extreme reaction that seemed almost like an allergy. Terrible swollen itchy red rashes that weeped on my face... no previous history of eczema. It's been about 10 weeks now since the rash first appeared and since then it has followed a pattern of flaring up, clearing up, and then flaring and clearing up again... with each flare up being less in intensity. The last flair up was quite mild, and now only 1 of the 3 patches flairs up... the other 2 are gone (for now anyway). What seemed to clear it up best this last time was topically applying Olive Leaf Extract. However, it's now clear to me that my body needs a more complete cleansing, and I think the Castor Oil + Turp intestinal flush, along with LI, Borax, Alkalizing will go a long way in cleansing my entire body.

My long-term plan is to follow your complete protocol described in "Candida: Killing So Sweetly" next summer (when I will have more time to commit to the process). But for now it would be great to take a month and do intestinal flushes on the weekends, and the full body protocols daily.

Please let me know if you think this is not the way to go... Otherwise, I'm excited to start the cleansing... and hope the die off / Herx reactions aren't too extreme as I cannot take any sick days! Thanks, and keep up the great work :)

From what I understand, colonic irrigation has to be done by someone with special equipment. It is aimed at doing more of the colon than an enema can do. I am aiming at infections in the rectum and around sigmoid portion of colon so enema should be enough. I need to repeat the enema daily until infection eliminated. Colonic irrigations I think of as one time annual thing and it would cost money.

Besides infection near sigmoid, I have also had tailbone inflammation for some years and I suspect that it is related to the rectum. I can experiment with different things also. That area of my body is one area I never dealt with.

Thanks for the confirmation about the psyllium husk stuff along with all the suggested recipes.

[YEA]  This is the ultimate cure OXY 10% it's so creamy and can be used all over the scalp and other parts of body including face. I had dissecting scalp cellulitis and this help clear up my scalp 85% am not kidding. I have a small keloid on the back of my scalp been using ACV off and on. When I took a cotton pad with ACV on it I put in on the Keloid and it sucked out a lot of pus. Benzoyl peroxide is the best takes a while to get use to the dryness but It is the the Cure hands down. Wish it was not so expensive, and every time I go to walmart it's sold out. There you have it.

How are you Robert? I just made a concentration of Grapefruit Seed Extract. I put several drops in 11 ounce hair spray bottle and clean some black mold of my windows inside. I then sprayed the windows down with it and let it dry. I hope I have the concentration strong enough. I put quite a bit in for just 11 ounce of water.

I shook the bottle very well before cleaning. Do you think this will work for my mold and mildew problems? I also sprayed a small spot on my ceiling that looked like mold. I may check into the company you speak of, so I can do the air condition system.

Take care, Rebel

 Itching Black Moles All Over Body

Mary: Whole body hot baths should help greatly. I would start w/ the standard 1/4 cup Epsom Salt + 1/4 cup Baking Soda + 1/4 cup Borax 2x wk for 2 wks. This alkalizes the body and restores detox & immunity. Next try either ACV bath (1 cup is recommended if my memory serves correctly) or Turpentine bath (not sure how much but there is recommended amounts posted here on E.C.) I would rotate the ACV and Turpentine baths w/ occasional mineral bath.

I believe it is Lavender essential oil that Mama To Many recommends for skin condition which can be applied topically.

Be sure to get proper amounts of Vit-A&D, Vit-E, and Selenium in diet or add as supplement. Omega 3 fatty acids like Fish, Krill, or Chia is also very important for the skin. Primrose or Borage Oil taken orally can further reduce inflammation and improve endocrine, and immune function.

Cindy...Any form of organic, pressed castor oil will do. I use organic castor oil made by Sweet Sunnah which you can buy on Ebay.

I always take the castor oil with turpentine now. Two ways to take it.

Take 1 tspn turps with 1 tablespoon castor oil. This will just loosen your stool(that's what it does for me anyway). This can be taken once a week or on a day on, day off basis. I call this the Gentle Turpentine Protocol.

Then there is the second method of taking this protocol which you can take for serious candida issues in your gut once a week. This is the full blown laxative version -- 1 tspn turpentine and 3 to 4 tablespoons(depending on your size/weight). If you decide to take this version then make sure you're on a free day and ensure that there is a toilet within easy reach. Take this version only once a week. Very effective at killing large amounts of candida, parasites, bacteria, removing biofilm etc and expelling them quickly -- all in one laxative protocol. Cleans and disinfects the whole intestines in one stroke.

Just to also emphasize that the above protocol is only useful for clearing the gut of candida and other pathogens. But you will still have to take other nutrients -- LI, Borax, Alkalizing -- to kill the fungal candida form in the blood, tissues and organs. If you don't do this, the fungal candida form will just come back and reinfect the intestines from the blood.

Just to also repeat, from the research, that turpentine does not kill the beneficial bacteria in the gut.

Hi Silversurfer...Regarding Boswellia, it was Ted from Bangkok who gave me that tip in an email recently which is why I wanted to test it on myself. I received the Boswellia and yesterday tried 1/2 tspn of the powder in a tea which was the Ayurvedic recommendation. It tends to clump together and tastes a bit gritty like sand -- not very soluble or miscible in water. So next I'll try mixing it with turps and take it like that -- the Boswellia resin powder should be completely soluble in turps.

Regarding enemas, I really wouldn't try anything fancy, I would use the standard enemas on there own like hydrogen peroxide, sodium bicarbonate, coffee enema etc. I must also confess that I haven't yet tried any enema yet, because I've never needed to use one. I would probably favour the coffee enema of Max Gerson which also helps to detox the liver so well. The sodium Bicarbonate enema is also a good one from the accounts I've read and there are even a few that use turpentine.

I would also never use or supplement LI together with turpentine in any instance as they react somewhat vigorously together which causes an exothermic (heat generating) reaction that might be explosive. Borax is also not chemically compatible when mixed with Iodine. please be careful what you mix together.

For a useful, full account of what you can use in remedy combos by Ted from Bangkok(who is a qualified biochemist) -- see this post stream on EC:

Hi Prioris...Its quite common to use a sodium bicarbonate mixture with psyllium/water to alkalize the intestines but, as you suggest, you can use other nutrients as well. And you're quite right, using psyllium like this as a sort of slow release vehicle that releases the ingredients that you add to the psyllium slowly thereby more more efficiently treating the whole intestines.

I also see no reason why you cannot mix nutrients like iodine, coconut oil, undecanoic acid or just borax water etc directly into the psyllium before you add the water. These nutrients will be absorbed and stored in the psyllium to later be released more slowly and beneficially throughout the intestines.

Other different variations, such as making one liter of tea from Gymnema sylvestre and just adding the following nutrients:

Borax(1/8 for women or 1/4 tspn for men)

1 tablespoon ACV

One squeezed lemon or lime

Vitamin C powder (3, 000mgs),

MSM (1/2 tspn)

Glutamine (500 mgs)

Add Sodium Bicarbonate until the fizzing stops.

You can also add 1 to 3 tspns of psyllium husks to this drink on a per glass basis whenever you drink it for a more longer lasting beneficial effect throughout the intestines. This is a highly effective drink against candida.

This drink is strongly anti-fungal(Borax, GS), repairs the intestines(MSM, Vit C, Glutamine), alkalizes the body, immune booster, reduces blood sugar(GS).

Drink this throughout the day on a 5 days on 2 days off basis because of the borax. This is a very easy way of taking these important nutrients. You know about most of these ingredients already but the Gymnema sylvestre(GS) is important and useful and well known to revert the fungal form of candida back to the yeast form which is much easier to treat. This remedy effectively shuts down and removes the more virulent fungal candida form mainly because of the GS tea. GS also removes sugar from the blood -- that's why it's also particularly useful for diabetics.

If you prefer you can also just subtract the borax from the above remedy and just add in Lugols Iodine(8 drops) and drink this every day for good effect.

The iodine form of this drink acts as a strong, wide-acting anti-pathogen(LI), helps low or hypothyroid problems(LI), immune booster(LI), repairs intestines(MSM, LI, Vit C, glutamine), reduces blood sugar(GS) etc.

Or you could simply drink the borax form and the iodine form of this drink on alternate days without problems for a wider beneficial effect.

Also please be aware that you should never mix borax and Iodine together in the same drink or take them at the same time.

I would also recommend enemas as you suggest, but I still believe that the turps/CO protocol is probably the only protocol that is able to spread the turps(or any other nutrient that will dissolve in CO) evenly throughout the whole area of the intestines. The trick here is not to keep increasing the turps dosage -- but keep increasing the castor oil dosage until you have a full and strong laxative effect throughout the whole intestines to quickly clear out the candida, heavy metals, parasites, other poisons, biofilms etc from this region. You should only do this full strength laxative protocol once a week.

On other days take the same dose of turps (1 tspn) with only 1 tablespoon of castor oil. I use this latter dose as my "quieter" maintenance dose once a week only. It tends to just loosen the stool. But you can use this version one on a day on, day off basis. Then I will occasionally use the full and strong laxative protocol (1 tspn turps, 3 to 4 tablespoons CO) to clear up any build up or problems in my intestines. This stronger laxative version is very effective and works quite well but I really wouldn't stray too far from a toilet if you are using the full strength laxative version of the turps/CO laxative protocol...

To clear out the colon/lower intestines area, have you ever considered colonic irrigation?

I saw my dad for a moment today. He tried to hug me but I backed away. I haven't told the family I won't be with them this holiday. Dad is making the turkey this year. I am so sick today and have no one to turn to but here. My stomach hurts so bad. I've had alternating constipation and diarrhea, nausea, brain fog. I feel very confused. My apartment is a mess. I can't eat. I'm overloaded with protocols. I'm not sure what I'm doing anymore. I put some EDTA and ammonium in this cup of water and am drinking it. I didn't measure. I wish someone could just hold me and help me. It's so hard to go on like this. There's no way to defeat this thing. It's going to win. I can feel it. I just hope my dad and I get into heaven. There we can hug.

Clove/ACV/Tagamet Curing Daughter's Molluscum Contagiosum

Thu, 23 Oct 14 19:53:27 -0500

Posted by Annie's Mom (Houston, Tx) on 10/23/2014

[YEA]  Cannot thank previous posters enough for recommending Tagamet, it made a huge difference for my daughter and her sensitive skin. The clove oil burned her skin, and the ACV directly was too irritating for her (sensitive skin). It's been 2 weeks on the clove/ACV/Tagamet routine and the difference is amazing. I know it's the Tagamet working because on days she doesn't take it, I see no progress. I crushed the tabs and put them in a glass of sweet tea or lemonade and she doesn't know the difference.

Her dermatologist-- I could shoot him-- blamed me for not keeping her eczema at bay with more moisturizing, and told me to apply more barrier Triamcinolone ointment. Like a fool, I did, and guess what? Those 20 or so blisters turned into 200 almost overnight! Ankles, legs, buttocks, kneecaps, and elbows. Three weeks from that appt and now we're almost MC (molluscum contagiosum) free, thanks to the remedies suggested here. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

HI U KATHY, , , , , , , , , , , , , I do some, but when you are exposed constantly to toxins you have to remove them before you can address them. I think mold and EMF's are the silent killers of our modern life style. They get us and we don't have a clue.

As you know I'm a story teller and I am glad that I have at least one fan. We took our girls to Ontario in the 70's and they were astounded at the diverse culture you have. They were reared Rednecks as you would expect.

Alum and Mouth Wash for Muceole (Cyst in Mouth)

Thu, 23 Oct 14 19:45:45 -0500

Posted by Cb (Ny, US) on 10/23/2014

[YEA]  I waited until a month after I tried my remedy to write this post to make sure it didn't come back. I found out that I had gotten a muceole (cyst in mouth) from biting my lip and did EVERYTHING wrong. I tried to pop it like a pimple, I poked at it with a needle, ate hot/ spicy foods, and played with it with my tongue and teeth. Of course after two and a half weeks of having it, I learned what it is and everything I shouldn't do. I should say muceoles seem to expand and contract everyday or so - I thought a few times it was going away by itself, but it always came back until I tried this remedy.

Buy some Alum (a pickling agent, should be able to find it in the spice aisle) and some mouth wash (I don't think it matters but I used a antiseptic tartar control one). Using your finger or a cotton swab dab some (not much, maybe a pinch) of alum onto the muceole and leave it alone as long as you can keeping the area dry by holding your lip (or wherever) out of the wetness of your mouth. I did for a about 20 mins - then wash it out carefully. WARNING - alum does not taste good and will feel strange in your mouth. Then use the mouth wash. The alum should "dry up" the muceole and the mouth wash will keep it from getting infected or bigger.

The next day (I did the first time at night) I noticed where I had placed the alum had dried the skin, much of my mouth was dry with peeling skin (not as bad as it sounds). I repeated this process three times within a six hour period the day after I started the remedy. I recommend starting on a weekend so you have time to do this. At this point I could see the white spot within the muceole (salivary gland) which is a good sign. After that I used mouth wash consistently for three days and my muceole healed and completely went away. It's now been a month without it coming back. Hope this helps someone out there!
