  Re: Question for Dave Regarding Viral Link to Autoimmunity
Fri, 11 Apr 14 17:09:47 -0500

04/11/2014: Timh from Ky, Usa: "Dave: I take a Digestive enzyme supplement w/ my main meal and eat Pineapple regularly. I think the enzyme inhibition you mentioned must be from mature Ascaris found in the digestive tract; but the most insidious problems arise from the eggs, larvae, and juveniles.

I will quote some of Hulda Clark's observation to help clarify.

"When you kill the Ascaris worms by zapping or herbal tincture, they are mortally wounded. They are dying, but the eggs inside them are not. They were sheltered. Within a day these trapped eggs begin to leave the dying worms. Soon hordes of eggs are dispersing in your body again. And in another 24 hrs they begin to hatch into larvae. {I believe this event is evidences by the heart pain which I have experienced}.

The eggs, even if unfertilized, may do more harm than the worms. Ascaris eggs bring three very important pathogens that spread throughout the body: Rhizobium leguminosarum, Mycobacterium avium/intracellulare, and the common cold virus Adinovirus. {I believe that most of the warm-blooded (wild) animals infected w/ Ascaris, eventually die of these infections}.

The primitive metabolism used by Ascaris (and other parasites) is called the Gloxylate cycle. The gloxylate cycle commanders our Krebs cycle.

Another thing that Ascaris does is destroy all the Vit-C in the organ by oxidizing it (removing the hydrogen atom)."

  Re: Dave's Experiment with Papaya
Fri, 11 Apr 14 17:09:02 -0500

04/11/2014: Dave from Fountain Inn, Sc: "To Mama to Many and anyone interested in the Papaya experiments;

Update; I continue to attempt dietary suicide by consuming ALLLL the foods that I KNOW will kill me.

Well, perhaps this is hyperbolae. "Exaggeration for the sake of effect"...otherwise known as a "lie" is OK if it has literary value. So says some philosopher of ethics I read one time. Can't recall who. But some philosopher must have said it at some point in time because philosophers say most everything.

Back to the point: Certain foods will cause me terrific problems; too much creamy stuff, too much coffee and red meat and for SURE; Reflux. I mean for sure.

ANY salsa and for sure, skin irritation is immediate; especially back of scalp...and burning eyes.

That scalp condition has been a reaction since I was a child and the reflux developed ten years ago.

Well, I have indulged; And my wife, intrigued at my new attempt at such an "adventurous" life style, her elbow on kitchen counter, head in palm of her hand just gazing at me as I stuff chip after chip laden with hot salsa into my burning mouth.

"What?" I ask as bits of salsa fall over my reddened lip.

"Just watching. And waiting. I have the phone ready to call 911."

"Very funny." I gulp down the twentieth chip. I choke a bit but recover.

"Push that bowl of Papaya and Mango over here. You're not getting the insurance money that easily, love. Watch this."

And with that, I down eight soothing...cooling spoonfuls of the blend of one Papaya and three much smaller Mangos, blended and then strained to make a thick, beautiful orange/yellow "soup." I do not dilute; just using a spoon I consume letting the mild, mellow liquid soak into my mouth before swallowing.

"There. Saved."

"We'll see." And she continued to stare at me.

I neither died NOR broke out in the slightest rash.

And as a further "update" I tried to induce Reflux by downing a huge container of Coffee ice cream. ALL for the sake of science; followed by Papaya again. (Mama to Many...you alone seem to understand the sacrifice involved ... bless you.)

No Reflux. Yet.

There has to be some point of excess that the Papaya can't overcome and I am determined, for the sake of science, to find THAT POINT.

AND; I have ONLY gained two pounds in this .... this experiment... thus far.

I am only doing this for you...dear EC readers. Testing the limits..." boldly going where no man has gone before..." Some philosopher said that too. Plato I do believe. Maybe Wittgenstein. The Later Wittgenstein.

And if that point...which I spoke of is reached...over some bowl of forbidden flavors, don't be surprised if my wife, newly attired in the finest of apparel, holds a series of "appreciation" events at a few selected sites...

And don't feel sorry for her. She'll be traveling around the globe for a while; overcoming her grief and looking for new "remedies" out of love and respect for her deceased husband; who died while looking for solutions to ailments...only trying to help those hurting."

04/11/2014: Timh from Ky, Usa: "Elizabeth: A small amount of heavy metal or radiation will make such drastic reactions in the Thyroid.

First thing I would (and have done) is apply magnet therapy to end the inflammation. A refrigerator magnet would be a good start but you may need to graduate to a stronger magnet. Selenium & Vit-E, & Vit-A protects the glands from harm. Zinc lozenges will protect and improve T function. You can use Cod Liver Oil topically directly over the T area of the neck as this will bring major protection to the sensitive gland. I sometimes use a small hand-held vibrator gadget to clean and stimulate the Thyroid as well as Thymus glands.

Any antioxidant nutrients/supplements of oral route will help. I would recommend Grapeseed Extract of at least 100mg daily. Multicaratinoid complex will help along w/ 50mg Zinc to help conversion."

  Re: MSM for Blepharitis
Fri, 11 Apr 14 16:09:29 -0500

04/11/2014: Dave from Fountain Inn, Sc: "Hello Meiday,

Re your eyelid condition;

On this EC website, if you look under Ailments, you'll see the introduction which states the cause of Blepharitis is a bacterial or viral infection that impacts the oil gland of the eye lid.

In that case, assuming an infection is the cause; if me, I'd consider applying Colloidal Silver to eye lid using an unscented handkerchief. I do this three times daily for four or five days. If improved in a few days, I'd continue until infection resolved.

I use CS when I get Pink Eye; two drops in each eye, twice daily for two days. Knocks out PE quickly...at least for me. So even if I get a bit of the CS in the eye when applying to eye lid, I know that won't hurt the eye."

  Re: MSM for Blepharitis
Fri, 11 Apr 14 15:08:41 -0500

[YEA]  04/11/2014: Amyk from Los Angeles, Ca: "Hi Meiday,

Do you have allergies to dust, outdoors, grass, pollen etc.-- meaning airborne allergies? You should see if that is the cause. I have had airborne allergies all my life and then about 3 years ago I developed blepharitis in both eyes, which was due to my allergies. My eyes were burning, peeling, crusty, wrinkly and made my eyes droop. It was horrible! I tried castor oil, that made it worse for me. I kept changing out washcloths and even put frozen foods on them hoping it would help the burning, but it didn't. I also used an eyewash they sell at the drugstore, but that didn't matter either. Somehow I finally stumbled on MSM pills and after 3 days I was better. I bought MSM pills (it's the sulfur content) from CVS (1000mg per capsule), took 2 capsules 3 times a day, and that helped completely-- no more burning eyes! And then for the crusty, flaky, droopy part, I just used Cetaphil face lotion, just something really moisturizing, and really piled it on at night, and that took care of that. After about a month or two, I reduced my dosage to 2 capsules 1 time a day. I still take this dose today everyday on an empty stomach in the morning with some water and it keeps my blepharitis away. If for some reason I don't take it for a few days, my eyes start to feel the burn. Also, I had read that MSM and Vitamin C works well when taken together, but this wasn't so for me. For some reason for me, the Vitamin C canceled out the effects of the MSM, and made my eyes burn again. So I suggest that you take the MSM on an empty stomach with water, and not with orange juice or any kind of Vitamin C. Good luck!"

Diet is the key to health, no white potatoes, also wheat, try it for a few months, it dose not cost anything. This is probably the cause of inflamation. Also if your diet is acidic over time you are not asimilating magnesium, copper, zinc, and calcium. 1000 mg vit c, 1000 mg msm, together they build new cells in the body. Also 1000 mg of calcium, and 1000 mg chicken collagen, preferably with hyaluronic acid and chondroitin. Every 12 hours or 2x a day, important every 12 hours for even cell growth. May take up to 6 months to work, don't give up, it usually takes a lot less than 6 months. if it is osteo. Google Dr Hans A Nieper, he has a good treatment for osteo. You mentioned candida, if you put weight on around the waist it's a sign of sugar in the future. Don't over dose on the calcium or the magnesium, magnesium overdose can cause very unpleasant problems"

I take whole food based supplements to balance my hormones, it took almost a year to balance them, my period is much better and my fibroid did not grow within a year which is a good sign but I needed it to shrink. I heard about the blackstrap molasses, I started taking it four days ago two times a day two tablespoons. Do you think it will help shrink the fibroid now especially that my hormones are balanced? Is two tablespoons a day enough to help shrink the fibroid and how long do you think it will take."

04/11/2014: Elizabeth from Nashville, Tn: "Sorry in advance for the long post but I want to give as much information as possible.

I'm 34 and me and my husband are ttc (trying to conceive) after his vasectomy reversal. First, I need to get my hormones in check and I need help. My periods are irregular (every 30-45 days, I never know) and I fear I have ovarian cysts and maybe even uterine fibroids. I've researched fertility supplements that can help your body regulate itself and I bought Fertilaid.

The problem is the effect it has on my thyroid. My thyroid "ran hot", or went hyperthyroid, for a short period of time back in 2011. I believe this was iodine induced as I was taking supplements that had kelp in it. After I quit taking them, my thyroid calmed down. Last year, a small nodule was found on the right side of the thyroid and the Dr. said it doesn't seem suspicious, but to keep an eye on it. Well, after taking the Fertilaid, which has kelp and other thyroid stimulating herbs, my thyroid became inflamed, like I was choking. This was only after 4 or 5 days of taking the supplement. Yesterday, the right side with the nodule became so sore and painful that I quit taking Fertilaid. I'm very disheartened as I was hoping that would regulate my periods and help me ovulate.

I bought Vitex. or chasteberry, yesterday (helps to regulate hormones) to see if that would work, and my thyroid went crazy after I took it (inflammation and pain). I just don't know what to do. I have an appointment with the GYN in a couple weeks, so I will ask for hormone tests. I know back in 2009 I was low on progesterone, cortisol and had adrenal insufficiency.

Has anyone heard of the thyroid going berzerk after taking certain supplements? I really wanted to regulate my thyroid so my hormones would be in check but I'm at a standstill.

Any help or advice at all would be greatly appreciated. I really want to start our ttc journey as soon as possible, I'm not getting any younger :(

Thanks to all.

P.S. On a different note, I would recommend serrapeptase for ovarian cysts, etc. It's greatly reduced my pain and bloating. Hopefully, it will keep working and eventually dissolve the cysts!"

I currently take 100mg's of CoQ10 twice a day, 1 capsule twice a day of the Acetyl-L-Carnitine 800/Alpha Lipoic Acid 400 combo and a big clove of chopped garlic each day. I also sip on potassium broth or potassium-rich coconut water all day.

I am down to only 1/4 tablet of my BP medicine (Metoprolol) and hope to get off of it entirely, soon. I'm not quite there yet, though.

I eat very clean and also try to keep my blood sugar from spiking by eating more frequently. I don't have blood sugar issues, but I've found that keeping things steady has helped my BP some.

Like you, I've tried many, many natural treatments, including all of the ones I've seen you mention. It truly is a trial and error process and there's really no way around it since what works for one person might not for another.

There was a time when ACV worked well for me, but for whatever reason, it ceased to work about a year ago and I've spent the past year trying different combinations. At this point, there's not much I haven't tried.

I'm happy to be down to 1/4 of my BP medicine, though. I'm getting there! You will, too. :)"

  Re: Parkinson's and Other Ailments
Fri, 11 Apr 14 08:47:22 -0500

04/11/2014: Siddavis from Springfield, Mo: "Have you read Grain Brain by Dr. David Perlmutter? Also look up ketogenic diet videos on youtube and watch as many as you can of those by doctors and researchers or do a google search.

Perlmutter's recommendation for neurological degeneration like Alzheimer's, ALS, MS, and Parkinson's is a diet high in saturated fats and extremely low in carbohydrates (ideally 75% saturated fats, 20% protein, and only 5% carbohydrates with the carbohydrates coming only from a few nuts and some greens).

The evidence is that unsaturated fats (seed oils like corn oil, soybean oil, etc.) are a great danger, and lead to cellular damage. This is because unsaturated fats are easily oxidized. This comes from the hydrogen atom next to the double carbon bond in these chains of fat being extremely weak and easily combined with free radicals. And it is no wonder that your mother has thyroid problems because polyunsaturated fats also suppress thyroid function by reacting with iodine at the double carbon bond, thus depriving the thyroid gland of iodine, an essential part of thyroid hormone.

Unlike polyunsaturated fats, saturated fats do not react with iodine. As a matter of fact the way chemists in labs determine if a fat is saturated or unsaturated is to see how much iodine a given amount of fat absorbs.

Carbohydrates break down into blood sugar. A teaspoon of wheat actually has more glucose in it than a teaspoon of table sugar because table sugar is 1/2 glucose and 1/2 fructose. When you ingest carbohydrates, you body produces insulin to bring down glucose presence in your blood because otherwise you would die from too much sugar in your blood as has happened to many type I diabetics over the years. The insulin carries the glucose into your cells to be stored or burned as fuel, but over the years your cells develop resistance to insulin as a protective measure since the repeated high amounts of insulin from eating a diet high in carbohydrates causes cellular inflammation. Type II diabetes is a result of this insulin resistance in cells, and what is being called type III diabetes is that same resistance that develops in nerve cells. In type III diabetes, the nerve cells start to die from the inability to import glucose, and neurological diseases like your mother's degeneration follow.

What a high fat, low carbohydrate diet does is starve your body of glucose, and keeps your blood sugar so low that insulin production is suppressed. To compensate ketone bodies like beta-hydroxybuterate are produced from fats. These are easily absorbed into all your cells for fuel without needing insulin, and are particularly favored by brain cells. Adaptation to burning ketone bodies happens in a very short time (days, not months). You don't need carbohydrates to live as native populations in the Arctic prove since they can't grow plants to eat; however, you would die without fats and proteins. Any glucose your body might need is manufactured in your liver by breaking down the protein in your diet in the process called neoglycogenesis. You will no doubt be told by the poorly informed that ketosis is dangerous. It is not because in nutritional ketosis resulting from a low carbohydrate diet, it is controlled by your bodies continued ability to produce insulin if needed. Diabetics can't produce enough insulin no matter what, so they can go into ketoacidosis which is the uncontrolled production of ketone bodies, which can be fatal to them without insulin injections. If you mother doesn't need insulin injections now, she would have no problem with ketosis.

I can see you would have a big problem getting a nursing home to feed your mom the ketogenic diet she needs. Too many physicians buy into the low fat, high carbohydrate "heart healthy" baloney even though the evidence says they are wrong, and in fact evidence shows the original study that led to the low fat diet fad was scientific fraud at worst or scientific incompetence at best engineered by Ansel Keys in the 1950's.

What your mom should be eating is at least three tablespoons a day of MCT oil (medium chain triglyceride oil) or unrefined organic extra virgin coconut oil which you can get at a good price at Sam's club. She should be eating eggs, bacon, heavy cream, high fat cheeses, fatty steaks, liver, and fatty pork. She should not eat any starchy vegetables, cereals, breads or other grains; no sugars or sweets of any kind; no sodas.

Read the antioxidants that Dr. Permutter recommends and give her those, too.

As for the thyroid issue, like most people she probably doesn't get enough iodine and thyroid deficiency diseases result. You might need to watch her thyroid hormone levels because eliminating polyunsaturated fats will free up some iodine, and she might make more of her own thyroid hormone. She at a minimum should be taking selenium which regulates her own thyroid hormone, and should have as a goal to wean herself from the artificial thyroid hormones she has been prescribed, and replace them with iodine supplements.

if you can find a iodine friendly, ketone friendly doctor, I would say that is about your best shot. If you try this yourself while she is at a nursing home, they might take you to court and force her to eat the garbage they feed at nursing homes.

I personally have done this diet for myself, to address neurological degeneration and lost 70 pounds in the process, a nice side effect. But I read many, many books and research studies, and was not as badly deteriorated as you say is your mother. I take 25 mg of iodine (Iodoral) a day along with 400 mcg of selenium and 500 mg of L-tyrosine in addition to a general health food type vitamin and mineral regimen. I live on about 1,500 kcalories a day with 75% coming from fat, and 20% coming from protein, and I love it. Yum, yum. I avoid doctors but did get my blood work done and all my numbers are well within normal range; the doctor who I went to just scratched his head because being indoctrinated in the faulty wisdom of medical school he couldn't bring himself to believe that a high fat diet was healthful.

All this information is available on the internet if you look hard enough. Good luck."

I had really tried everything to fix it but nothing really worked. Then I went to a chiropractor (I found him online, he had very good reviews). The first time I went to him he did an adjustment on me, and there was this massive cracking and popping. I don't know how this works but after this adjustment I just felt so much different- I could fall asleep relatively easily, I slept well, and I could wake up at a normal hour. I know that different people have different responses to chiropractic care, but I had never heard of this as a potential solution to my fatigue, and it has changed my life. If you have tried everything else, it might be useful to find a trusted chiropractor and see if a chiropractic adjustment helps you."

  Re: Food and Chemical Sensitivities
Thu, 10 Apr 14 20:29:43 -0500

04/10/2014: Bill from San Fernando, Philippines: "Hi Debby...In answer to your questions:

1. Because I am so chemically sensitive sometimes even supplements give me a really bad headache. Will I get any die off from this remedy and do you think I will be able to cope with 6 drops of luguls in one drink?

I would test all the supplements that you suspect might cause sensitivities individually on your skin first to see if you are allergic/sensitive. Also, particularly for Lugol's Iodine, work up to the full daily dosage(6 drops drops twice a day) using smaller drop dosages initially in case there are any Herx or Detox effects. If this occurs then adjust the dosage lower to suit your needs accordingly.

2. Secondly, because I am taking the sodium molybdate should I take a copper supplement and if so what one do you recommend? Or do you think 2 weeks would not be long enough to deplete the copper.

Generally, candida welcomes excess copper into the body. Excess copper makes candida more virulent and copper is also incorporated into their biofims. So don't worry about the copper, worry about the candida instead. Taking molybdenum will also act to neutralize and reduce the waste toxins in your body from candida, thus reducing the Herx reaction. Molybdenum also kills candida as well. That's why I would avoid taking copper supplements altogether if you have candida. And, as I've already said, taking lugol's iodine(plus all the companion nutrients) will improve your low thyroid problem. Iodine is also essential for healthy nails, skin and hair. The MSM in the drink will also provide sulfur which is also essential for healthy skin, nails and hair.

Another idea for you -- if you suspect mineral imbalance then just get a hair analysis done(quite cheap). This will not only tell what minerals you are lacking but will also tell you what heavy metals you have in excess in your body as well. Armed with this knowledge you should be able to use a more focused protocol to achieve health and balance."

04/10/2014: Dave from Fountin Inn, Sc: "Hello Timh:

About Ascaris

You mention being hit by the parasite, and I read that it hits the digestive enzymes especially. The "Ascaris carboxypeptidase inhibitor" (wow)... is part of the parasite's defense mechanism...so that means that the enzyme pepsin (and two others) would be deficient as the worm emits the "inhibitor" stopping the human digestive enzyme from working. I'm sure you could lecture to me about all this. And, I'm sure you've tried (lately my favorite digestive help) ... Papaya. Its enzyme, Papain, is very similar to Pepsin...or so I've read. So I wonder if consuming Papaya could help overcome the parasite's inhibitor action. Even if you are rid of the parasite, the action of the inhibitor may still be at work.

Let me know how you've dealt with the digestion issue. Thanks. I know you've gone through much agony. You are just hero for not giving up."

1. Because I am so chemically sensitive sometimes even supplements give me a really bad headache. Will I get any die off from this remedy and do you think I will be able to cope with 6 drops of luguls in one drink?

2. Secondly, because I am taking the sodium molybdate should I take a copper supplement and if so what one do you recommend? Or do you think 2 weeks would not be long enough to deplete the copper.

I will second your observation on Beck, but what I noticed was his general stature and mobility. I would venture to guess Beck was, by birth, somewhat delicate.

Yes, the cardio system is definitely a victim of time and stress. I take several measures of prevention in this area as my heart has been major stressed especially by Hypertension and Ascaris hyperinfestation. I still have occasional "bouts" but most times I am pain free.

I cook half-gallon batches of C.S. in about 1 hr time. It is only of late that I can actually notice improvements from C.S. as yrs past the toxicity was simply too severe.

On the MMS. If you are a fan of lemonade, you can simply add drops of Sodium Chlorite and presto, you have MMS. There is a slight taste of Chlorine but tolerable. As little as two drops daily will culminate in major improvements for the immune system. And if I might add, MMS is probably the best home remedy for Bee, Snake, Scorpion, and Spider bites & stings; a must item in the first-aid kit while in the bush or outback. I had a 6 drop dose tonight w/ a very little nausea. This is currently my max drop level.

04/09/2014: Dave from Fountain Inn, Sc: "Hello again Bill,

My "microbe" killing regimen is not as extensive as yours. I keep drinking CS daily (five days a week at least) and occasional Echinacea in water. I do use CS in sinus and ears. In sinus nearly every day as I think just as you; the sinus is where so much microbe action takes place.

On the THC; I watched a Rick Simpson report about a year ago. It was fascinating.

Here is something interesting: I watched on "LINK" TV an Ayurveda guru who mixed a baked substance that he added to the POISON mercury. And then orally consumed the combination. Yes, he knew mercury would poison, but he pointed out that mercury was the most effective microbe killer and that the "addition" kept the mercury from staying in the system, and like CS, would just be washed out after a few days. Ever since I saw that (LINK repeated the show on Indian Ayurveda three times, and I watched all three times)...ever since I saw that I knew that amazing substances were available if...IF...we only had access to the right methods. So my point is that the search for new mechanisms is one that should be seen as wide open. That is why I'm willing to consider MMS, for instance.

But your use of Turpentine is something I need to give more consideration to. And the Boron is also a new addition after reading about it on EC. H202 is something that I use occasionally.

So your approach is more eclectic than mine. Likely better as you are painting with a broader brush."

Wed, 09 Apr 14 20:26:14 -0500

04/09/2014: Bill from San Fernando, Philippines: "Hi Dave...Much thanks for your post which I enjoyed reading for sure.

Just to perhaps extend my explanation a bit. I regularly use protocols which I affectionately refer to as protecting my "Caves and Orifices" which entails doing the following.

Ears. Regularly wash out with either Hydrogen Peroxide or a few drops of LI in water a few times a week.

Nose -- I forgot to mention this one as a hiding place (think sinusitis or rhinitis that never goes away). The nose is a prime area for fungal build-up. Use a dropper to wash out the nose with either 1% HP or drops of Lugols iodine and water to clear fungus/bacteria build up. You can also use a neti pot with sea salt.

Teeth(root canals and gums) -- Use a few drops of gum turpentine in the mouth several times daily to help protect the gums and teeth roots. Turps is strongly absorbed by the gums. Or you can use a teaspoon of 50% DMSO(as Hulda Clark recommends) with a few drops of LI. Hold and swish it in the mouth for a few minutes before spitting it out to allow absorption into the gums/roots. In all cases, the absorption and anti-pathogen effect helps to rid inflammation, pain and infection in the gum and root regions. Use 3% HP as your regular mouthwash -- helps whiten teeth as well.

Synovial Regions -- Use DMSO and anti-pathogens(such as clove oil, LI, borax) locally and topically to drive out the hiding viruses etc into the blood. A strong and capable immune system should do the rest.

Lower Intestines(caecum, colon) -- Use laxatives and enemas to clear this region.

Biofilms -- Gum turpentine and protease enzymes are the only remedies that will get rid of biofilms.

Like you I wonder if there is a single cure-all out there. The closest I have ever come to such a remedy in my own research is THC -- the direct whole extract from the cannabis plant. Rick Simpson from Nova Scotia is the guru here. This plant extract cures everything from arthritis, diabetes, heart disease and MS to many forms of cancer and no-one knows why and no-one cares. THC is probably on of the most powerful and safe anti-inflammatory and painkilling remedies in existence today. I have also read that THC adjusts body homeostasis back to healthy levels again -- I know of no single natural remedy or cure that can do this. Rick Simpson comes from a simple farming community in Nova Scotia. These people are not in the habit of lying. Here is a video about medicinal THC that will perhaps astonish you as to the range of what it actually cures (from the testimonials on the video):

Run from the Cure

Unfortunately THC or medicinal cannabis is against the law and unobtainable -- unless, of course, you are lucky enough to live in Denver Colorado..."

04/09/2014: Dave from Fountain Inn, Sc: "Greetings Bill from the Philippines;

Re you VERY enlightening post...Lots of insights on "vulnerable locations" in your post....where the little devils hide out and where is their "base of operations."

The Eustachian Tube is a key...often a stubborn upper infection can be traced there and in fact regular medicine recognized the Eustachian Tube as a key source for "secondary infections" which are not killed by antibiotics. Why? Not much blood gets there and so the bacteria (and viruses) hide out there only to re-infect the system again.

Suppose we could devise a "super" killer...a combo of CS, MMS, DMSO (there are a lot of good broad based anti virals that could go in a mix.

Question about that and you mention the most insidious of them all...that Walter Last calls (and you mentioned) the nano bacteria...the "pleomorphic microbes" which may cause ... who knows what, since they morph into something new. Probably they are susceptible to assault when they are in the changing mode.

Susceptible like coated viruses...susceptible when they are multiplying. That means the virus killer / microbe killer etc must be in a constant "flush" mode for many months. One dose won't do it...of anything.

Not for the killers we're talking about.

But back to your "master list" of targets for the invaders...you are SO right in the likely sites. I think of this as like a bee hive...I mean by way of analogy. The microbes "localize" in a home...an organ or "place" and multiply from there in explosive moments of opportunity...perhaps when the immune system is impaired; or even when their victim is depressed. Then they fire out their offspring to invade elsewhere in the body; when they "sense" immune weakness.

And there you have it...attacking in a myriad set of methods. The most vulnerable you listed.

I'm in search mode for the "super" cleanse...a combo? As much of a proponent of CS as I am, I think it has its weaknesses. Which is why I often mention other anti microbes like Echinacea. Oh, for a lab and some funding."

I'm not Ted but just a question relative to your daughter's condition. You do not give any of her history...medical, physical or anything else that might help Ted figure out what is going on...or for that matter anyone else who would want to help her. For instance, has she been on medication of any kind? Statins in the last year? Any history of A Fib? Any history of serious infection (mono, strep etc)? If an infection (a memorable and serious infection...what was it and where in the body)...Any accidents in the past year?

And...When was onset of the headaches? Does she think the headaches are related to the rest of the problems? Is she depleted of energy? If so, did the energy depletion coincide with the onset of the other symptoms?

You said she had an MRI of the head...nothing of the spine that might be showing lesions?

There are two parts to good analysis: First an accurate diagnosis and Second a possible array of either cures for the problem or "helps" to alleviate symptoms.

The more clues you can give Ted, the better he (or others) can give you good suggestions."

How are you doing these days?

Re...Bob Beck...there is even a youtube video of him making full strength CS using what I call the "fast" method. Exactly how I was taught. And in that video he drinks it undiluted!!! I was NOT taught that.

But, he died too young...only 77 from heart failure. Which is a lesson to us all. The "machine" is multifaceted. We have to keep all the parts in proper working order. I noticed in progressive videos of Bob, he wasn't looking vigorous. I asked myself; what is Bob doing wrong...something is absent in his nutrition program and I suspected lack of cardio because his face was looking "leathery" and bleached, as if not enough circulation was present.

So; viruses and fungi and bacterial infestation did not kill Bob...oh too soon...but I believe lack of cardio nutrients likely did.

Pay attention to ALL the parts. All the issues must be addressed. That's why a whole foods approach with a broad array of nutrients is what I think is best. I'm trying to cover all the bases."

[YEA]  04/09/2014: Smittymom from Des Moines, LA: "I just wanted to comment on the Borax and Hydrogen Peroxide post. You have saved my sanity!!! I have 4 kids under 9 and we think my husband brought home scabies from work. It has been a horrible experience! Especially for our 15 month old who was struggling terribly-up hours at night screaming etc. I was desperate. After several internet search attempts I found this site. I did not want to use Ivermectin and Permethrin creams-so I tried several home remedies--lots of coconut oil (which my 15mo old reacted to so we had to switch her to grapeseed oil-worked great) We used those carrier oils for the young living's Thieves oil-which worked great for relief-but didn't cure. We also used Naturasil stuff-lavender/sulfer soap, tea tree oil soak, the sulfer lotion, and the spray to kill stuff--along with washing everything-everyday. All of those things helped-and maybe even cured my husband--but my baby girl had nests all over-and head to toe rash--she was in misery. Not until we started the hydrogen peroxide/borax soak did she truly see results--and I saw them the first day!!!!! It was amazing!!! I only used about 1/3 c borax and 1/4 c. hydrogen peroxide for her--borax is hard on skin so be careful! Will really dry out. for myself I followed the 1c borax and 1/2 c Hydrogen peroxide. We so far have done 2 nights of borax baths and this is the first day I can say she has no new spots and the old ones are fading fast. It's been 10 days of hell for us (my husband started itching 2 months ago) but the last week and a half were awful.

I also made up a spray bottle of about 20oz warm water and added 2 Tbs borax and 2Tbs hydrogen peroxide. I spray this all over my house and when I have an itch I put it on my skin and let it dry there. After that I still use the coconut oil (2Tbs melted) with 4-5drops of Thieves oil-its got clove in it--and I put that on the itchy spots as well. We also put the tea tree oil in the baths at night as well-we then air dry to let the oil and borax stay on our skin. After that I cover in the coconut oil I have found some very dry/leathery like spots on my skin after borax-but its so much better than a scabies itch-so I will lotion or oil up. We also put borax in all our laundry loads washing everything on super hot (we turned our hot water heater all the way up) and drying everything completely (and putting all pillows in the dryer daily for 20-30min)

We will continue the nightly bath ritual (which takes about 4 hours for 6 people it seems). For a few more days at least-until the baby is completely healed-and then we will probably do every 2-3 days for awhile just in case-I'm not risking re-infection--this has been a nightmare.

This was an AMAZING find!! Borax and Hydrogen Peroxide made all the difference for the cure!!!! Thank You Thank You thank you!!! Getting our lives back. :)"

Nevertheless the symptoms came back and the Ultrasound revealed that there is a foreign object stuck, length 2cm. My Dr thinks its the residual of the capsule I used vaginally. Either way after the ultrasound went back to the Dr. to remove this 'object.' Strange thing is she can't see nor feel it and called a second Dr to confirm. Same. Then she sent me off to the womens hospital. Same story, two Dr checked and no findings. Now I am booked in for a surgery, D and C, removal of the 'object, ' taking out the mirena and put a new one in at the same time. My question is is it possible for the capsule to not fully dissolve and get stuck so far up that one needs surgery to remove it? I don't think it is a retained tampon, nor does my Dr, as the measurements don't correspond. Apart from that I haven't put anything else in my vagina, tampons or a capsule on the occasion."

04/09/2014: Ron from Fl: "Few realize the actual cause of RA. That cause originates in the bowels and has everything to do with digestion, leaky gut and toxic colon. Juice fasts certainly help the problem but in order to speed that process, I also recommend sodium bentonite powder, five tablespoons each day for about a year to heal the bowel and body. That can be done with the juicing. What you are doing with the juicing will work it will just take more time to cure. Those that continue to take the doctor prescribed medication have no idea that the medication is actually contributing to the problem making things worse and that is why people have to change drugs after a time. Another very important part to the healing process is probiotics. Happy healing."

It should appear as the second result of the search (white bottle w/ yellow cap). It's very inexpensive, which is always a plus. :)"

  Re: Question for Dave Regarding Viral Link to Autoimmunity

04/09/2014: Timh from Ky, Usa: "Dave: I think it was Walter Beck that proclaimed that using both Colloidal Silver & Zapping, in sufficient quantity would, in a matter of wks or months, kill ALL pathogens in the body.

I am zapping at maximum and am drinking 1 cup C.S. daily and am slowly making progress. It's been several days that I haven't taken 6 drop MMS dose and am beginning to think it impossible to kill all these pathogens without MMS. Jim Humble nicknamed MMS the Tasmanian Devil as it systematically destroys almost every known pathogen."
