 Re: Remedies Needed for Large Fibroid

Hi Harsha,

is there a naturopathic doctor or practitioner or homeopath in your area you could visit?

Have you tried an estrogen detox? It may help reduce the size of the fibroid and definitely help your body get rid of the excess estrogen that may have accumulated over the years. I totally understand your fear of surgery.

While I have not tried serrapeptase, a specific enzyme that breaks down the excess fibrin the fibroids consist of, I have read of women who had success with it shrinking their fibroids. To start with, or if serrapeptase is not available, regular digestive enzymes (they usually come in capsules containing several types of enzymes) could be an alternative. They should be taken systemically to be effective, that is NOT with food. I sometimes take one capsule before going to bed so they can work breaking down toxins in the body over night. If it is a good strategy for the tumor, I don't know, although there are studies showing effectiveness of enzymes re tumors; it would be a good idea to discuss with an alternative health care provider who is knowledgeable about these strategies. You have to find what works for you; our bodies have their specific needs, and it is important that you listen to what YOUR body asks for and how it reacts to what you eat, drink, supplement.

Have you tried the apple cider vinegar people write about here on the board?

I took iodine, and it did NOT work. It is important to be careful with iodine as a wrong dosage can have negative side effects.

Hope that helps a little!

[YEA]  Thanks for the advise. Things seem better today. I have been to my local health food store where the owner is very knowledgable. That is where I got the info and all the stuff I'm doing. He said if I followed his directions it would be better by the end of the weekend.

I will research the Uvi Ursi. I've not heard of it before.

Is anyone familiar with Dr. Kenneth Pullman's Diabetic Protocol and has been drinking the suggested elixir for cleansing the liver? If so, how are you dealing the elixir's being quite irritating to the throat. I found that adding a 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda helps in this regard; but I wonder if this addition interferes with cleansing the liver? (Not able to find Dr. Pullman's eMail address to pose this question.) Thanks, Larry

In response to: >Priorus, Muscle does not weigh more than fat. A pound of fat and a pound of muscle both weigh a pound!

Technically you're right. Got me there. LOL. I'll be chuckling about that for the rest of the day. I am glad to hear that you look slim at a very heavy weight also.

I hope more people will realize that weight loss should not necessarily be the objective. People should just realize that it is possible for one to LOOK slim with more weight. Changing your body composition will do that. Plus muscle will help burn up fat. You are additional proof that one can look slim at heavy weight. If someone loses 10 lbs of weight and it is all muscle then that is a failing weight loss program.

Look into serrapeptase. It addresses scar tissue of many types.

Bill, Thank you for the quick reply...Do you have a name brand of a "Good clean source of mineral water?" They all make claims and I am a bit reluctant to purchase any until I get a good referral, which would be from you. Thank you again...

* I also have dark black flecks of charcoal in my Brita filter. Didn't realize what it was until I read the consumer complaints you posted.

To James.Thanks, I may get the ablation eventually but trying to work with supplements and meds right now. I will try the Hawthorne. I only take 12.5 mg a day of toprol. I really don't think it does anything but am afraid it may keep my HR a little lower so that when I do get afib it isn't quite as fast! But as far as the supplements go, none of them seem to rid me of the afib completely! Sooo, I guess I'll just keep going on my same regimen with supplements and meds. You are fight about the fleccanide, it also didn't prevent the afib so I stopped taking it every day and take a "rescue dose" 400 mg when I go into it, which lately is about every 3 weeks. It still takes about 2 hrs for it to work and even that is too long! Hope they come up with a new cure soon! Hanging in and hope you are too! Pray for us all!

 Re: Kratom for Crohn's - Update

Posted by Meredith (Greensboro, North Carolina) on 09/28/2014

I'm so sorry that happened to you, Andrea! If you don't mind me asking, do you know of any way someone might be able to tell if they are especially prone to this sort of addiction?

From my (cursory) research, most people's experiences with Kratom seem to be positive, though for every 25 or so good reviews, 1 person will report something similar to what you've experienced. I'll admit, I pretty much dismissed these as worried parents making inflammatory comments about a 'legal high'.

I don't want people scared away from what has basically made my life liveable again (the diarrhea was so bad I was actually prescribed opiates to control it, codiene and opium tincture, and even with those drugs would have 'accidents' frequently)....but I certainly don't want to belittle your experience. Do you think it's fair to say that MOST people can take it without developing an addiction? My experience was that it was similar to (actually a little milder than) a caffeine addiction. I had little trouble stopping 'cold turkey' after I ran out.

Hit the Cyst With a Book Worked!

Sun, 28 Sep 14 16:35:27 +0000

Posted by Lori (Wilm, NC) on 09/28/2014

[YEA]  I am a 31 year old woman. I got my first ganglion cyst on the inside of my wrist 5 years ago. Dr. said it was barbaric to hit it with a book, so I went and got xrays, went to a hand surgeon, then had the surgery. Dr. didn't tell me, but my hand was in a cast for 2 weeks and it took 6 weeks for the stitches to heal and to lift more than 5-10 pounds.

2 months later the cyst came back in the exact same place. I went back to see the Dr. and they said it is very common for the cyst to come back. (Why not say that before surgery). I got xrays again and an MRI this time to see what area was causing the cyst to reappear. Dr. recommended another surgery (each surgery leaves scar tissue).

I came home and googled home remedies and got this website. First I saw he frankincense oil and the Epsom salt water. Some people said it took from 3 days-2 months for it to work. After reading, I saw the 'hit it with a book', so I thought why not, it is 5 in the morning, what else should I be doing. lol. I tried a couple times, but chickened out.

Then I though to take the book and hit the hand that did not have a cyst on it to get the force right and see how it felt. Once I did that a couple times, I felt more comfortable and hit the cyst. It instantly started going down. I massaged it for awhile to get more to go down, then I put ice on it for 15 minutes.

What could have been another surgery and more Dr. visits and time and money...disappeared in 2 minutes. It really didn't hurt, more just the thought of hitting yourself makes your stomach turn. It did not hurt at all afterwards and after 12 hours there was no bruise or pain. Also my hand was numb up my forearm from the cyst pressing on a nerve. As soon as I did this all feeling came back. Good Luck

Successful Hydrogen Peroxide Treatment for Scabies

Sun, 28 Sep 14 16:28:13 +0000

Posted by Max (England) on 09/28/2014

[YEA]  Hi, Like most I have found scabies to be a scary infection.

A thought first: First check the possibilty that it may be 'folliculitis' as scabies is often diagnosed incorrectly.

I scrubbed my large area of infection on the knee with neat conditioner (I use any unbranded name). They are better than the one that is head and shoulders above the rest for infections. I use neat conditioner for most things especially eczema.

This cleared the area of surface critters. However, I notice there often isn't a distinction between 'I'm free of them' to 'I'm free of the infection underneath the skin'.

The following is not for the faint hearted. I can only say this is what I did and not saying do it.

I poured a very small amount of 33% peroxide into a small glass. I then add a little water. The mixture was very powerful, way beyond 10%.

With a cotton bud I rubbed into the infected burrow lines till they opened and whoosh the peroxide just killed everything. The process was so painful that I thought I couldn't bear it but I keep pushing the bud. The off white residue was hard so I washed it down. Later, I repeated the process on the missed areas.

I can always tell if there is any infection under the skin because if I press an area it feels like a pin sticking in me. My knee looked like I had fallen on gravel that cut deeply into my flesh.

At last the infection had gone. Now I am recovering and applying simple balms to the sores. There is no scarring of 'burnt' areas.

The research I have done about using hydrogen peroxide when treating bv is you must use it 3 to 5 days before stopping, I don't think 1 day is enough. I thought about stopping but today is my second day.

Successful Natural Remedies for Sjogren Symptoms

Sun, 28 Sep 14 16:14:31 +0000

Posted by Gwen (Cleveland, Ohio) on 09/28/2014

Everyone's comments have been incredibly helpful!

I'm a very active, lean, 56-year-old who was experiencing several Sjogren's symptoms for months and they were significantly debilitating -- dry mouth, dry eyes, lung soreness plus heart palpitations. I refuse to seek out the help of traditional doctors because of their reliance on chemical cures. I did, however, engage a Sports Nutritionist that came highly recommended by an active, lean colleague of mine, who is 57 years old. I'm mentioning my age and my colleague's age so women who are of the same "vintage" realize that there is post menopause hope as one's body changes. When I shared my symptoms with the Sports Nutritionalist he said "Have you been tested for Sjogren's?" He also said, "At a minimum, you should be consuming 3000 mg of high grade fish oil per day." I was consuming 1000 mg per day. Interesting.

I next went online, read your comments, and did the following: increased my fish oil soft gels consumption to 3000 mg per day (Carlson Norwegian Salmon Oil), started taking 2 Solgar Flaxseed Oil 1250 mg soft gels per day and started taking 2 Solgar Super GLA Borage Oil 300 mg soft gels per day. The next day, my dry eyes and dry mouth significantly improved! The day after, my eyes and mouth felt normal again. I am still experiencing lung soreness plus heart palpitations, but I have noticed slight improvement there as well. My thought is that it may take longer for the rest of my body to get "fully lubricated" once again. I truly believe that I'm on the right path, so I wanted to share my experiences in case it may help others. As a side note, my Sports Nutritionalist also told me to switch multi-vitamins -- moving from a tablet to soft gels because they are absorbed into your system whereas tablets can pass right through you. One of his clients was being x-rayed for some type of condition, and the doctor saw the multi-vitamin in the gentlemen's intestinal tract, e.g., it hadn't been absorbed into his system. I am going to make this change as well.

I would recommend that if you increase your oil intake, you make sure that you're not over-doing it by eating fatty foods. Too much fat could cause other problems. Eat healthy!

I have a very severe case of Gastroparesis. My stomach is approx. 75% paralyzed. I used to do coconut oil all the time, I will start again. Where do you get the Aloe Vera ? At the pharmacy? Another question, did your daughter have problems with skin pain? My whole torso of my skin hurts bad like a sunburn and seems to be crawling up to top of my chest, below my neck. If so, what holistic thing can I do?

 Re: Anyone Tried Glutathione for Cataracts?

Sun, 28 Sep 14 14:56:04 +0000

Posted by Robin (Michigan, USA) on 09/28/2014

I have used the Rx (1.25% ascorbic acid, 1.25% glutathione, 6.25% DMSO) for about six months ... started with one drop in each eye twice a day ... now doing one drop in each eye every other day. Have not gone for eye exam for objective opinion on reduction of low-level cataracts but I have noticed much clearer vision and better vision in lower levels of light. Previously had to have very bright light levels to see clearly close up. So, it appears to be working effectively for me. Hope this helps give some perspective to this treatment.

 Re: Bill's Alkalizing Formula

Sun, 28 Sep 14 14:54:59 +0000

Posted by Samurai (Japan) on 09/28/2014

Hi Bill,

My question is: My saliva reading is showing an alkaline state, in the morning, afternoon and night, while my urine is acidic. I have started with the lemon alkalizing formula since yesterday. No change in the urine pH level yet. Wondering how long does it normally take for the change to happen? I have increased water intake to about 2 liters a day. Also, I'm not entirely sure if I am doing the formula right....Recipe says, squeeze one lemon (I am using 1/2 since the lemons here are really big) and add BS bit by bit till fizzing stops. I'm confused, should I keep adding the BS till the fizz stops, or should I add the BS and wait for the fizz to stop after which I add the water. Is there a video available for the method? Would really appreciate if you can give precise instructions. Dont wanna do this the wrong way..... Thanks a ton!
