Twitching Lessened by Ceasing B6 Supplementation

Thu, 28 Apr 16 20:08:03 -0500
Posted by Twitchytremorgirl (Northern, California) on 04/28/2016

[YEA]  I have been suffering from resting tremors and twitches for about 2 years. A year ago a neurologist diagnosed me with "all over the body" restless leg syndrome. He put me on Ropinirole which helped a bit, but not entirely. A year later, he finally decided to test my blood more thoroughly. It turns out I had too much vitamin B6 in my blood. So after I stopped taking Vitamins with B6 my twitching and tremors lessened over time. While they are not completely gone, they are better, and at least I am not awakened at night by twitches.

Hi Richard,

I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your Father.

I have seen a few things developed for C diff recently. Fecal transplants have a high success rate but difficulty delivering the material to the intestine. A new pill has been developed to bypass this, and to avoid possible problems with a live donor, research is looking at developing the correct bacteria (and other factors) in the lab. Both look promising for those suffering from C diff and other bowel problems, like Crohn's. I can't get the link to post, but if you Google "Pill for C diff" several articles from JAMA, science magazines and newspapers will show up. Successful trials with small groups of people have been done, with success rates in the 94% range.

Hopefully, others will receive more effective care in the future, regardless of their age.

[YEA]  UPDATE: I saw my doc and was given permission to use peroxide/water with a tampon, once a week. I have also started drinking kefir and I have NO bv! At the moment, it is GONE!!! We will see if it returns. I also take a folic acid tablet once a day. I have now been symptom free for 2 weeks. I think the pain I was experiencing could have been unrelated to this treatment. I'm so excited and hope this has worked for me!

[NAY]  I've been using rubbing alcohol for a few days now. Although it soothes the itch for an hour or so, it is not clearing up my poison ivy. I've had it for about a month now and it's getting worse. I'm about to give up and go to the doctor for more useless medications.

Kathy,

You addressed your question to Robert; but if Robert's suggestion doesn't work, consider trying colloidal silver. I've dealt with sinus infection for decades; I'm prone to sinus infection. Using CS will sting the first time used in sinus infected area. I know for a serious infection I'll have to repeat use for a week or so; three times daily using a squirt deep into sinus cavity (gentle but firm). I use an ear syringe to do this. Also with a serious infection, I know I'll have to be consuming CS orally for a few months. In fact in past two years I've begun drinking CS three times a day to generally rid my body of virus build up (I call it general viral load) because I know as I age (I'm nearly 67 yo) the immune system is not working as effectively as years ago so I'm using CS as an added immune system helper.

Four days using a squeeze bottle and I can breathe again after years of suffering.Can't believe how good it feels.Thank You.

Hi Lea...Just use Chanca piedra (CP) on its own for gallstones -- that should easily be enough to dissolve and get rid of them. After all, CP's other nick-name is "Stone Breaker" with a long and highly successful history and reputation for dissolving both kidney stones and gallstones.

Take the Chanca piedra as a tea four times a day if you can (CP is not poisonous). If this is not possible then take 500 mgs capsules three times a day.

Avoid buying any herbs that have added chemicals or are denoted as "chemically standardized". Adding chemicals to the herb ruins the synergicity of all the herb's active natural chemical components and so this form does not work so well. Instead, you should always buy herbs that are either organic or wild-crafted in order to preserve the natural synergicity of the chemicals in the herb. This form always works the best.

It's difficult to say how long it will take to dissolve your stone. In fact, it's probably more correct to say that you probably have many gallstones and not just one stone. I estimate that you will see results within the week and you should feel much better after 3 or 4 weeks on this protocol. I would also cut down on dairy foods for a while -- avoid foods like milk, cheese, yoghurt. Calcium is a formative constituent of gallstones, so you should also avoid calcium rich foods.

Also, taking magnesium citrate -- 250 mgs twice a day with meals -- will also help to both alkalize the cells and it will also help to more properly balance the Calcium in the body.

Also be aware that supplementing CP lowers blood presssure, lowers blood sugar and helps to remove excess calcium from the blood. So if you are currently taking any drugs that do the same thing -- then taking CP might be contraindicated.

About bee propolis, it is a wonderful antibacterial but a poor pain killer. To stop the pain from a tooth extraction, help coagulate the wound, relieve pain and reduce inflammation and infection use cayenne pepper on that tooth extraction. Cayenne takes the pain away in just a few minutes in my experience.

Hello Maureen;

I've had wisdom tooth extracted also. If me, I wouldn't leave anything on extracted site for more than a few hours. I'd try any number of remedies....like what you had suggested; also I'd try aloe vera gel which is a burn soothing healer. Also as I think what might be going on with this situation you have... wonder if maybe it could be an infection? Maybe would not hurt to try a gauze soaked in colloidal silver just to make sure no bacteria or virus is setting up. Consider also some of the essential oils.

Need Info on Bee Propolis For Dry Socket Pain

Wed, 27 Apr 16 22:02:32 -0500
Posted by Maureen (New Paltz, Ny) on 04/27/2016

Hi. It's been 8 days since my wisdom tooth extraction, and my nerves are completely exposed still. I went to my dentist yesterday and she explained that I had dry socket. She stuffed a long narrow strip of cloth soaked in a cream into the socket. She said it would deaden the nerves. She was super vague about how long I should keep it in there, so, thinking I didn't want the socket to heal around the cloth, I took it out before bed. I woke up this morning with intense pain, yet again, and I hear that propolis extract can be helpful in pain relief and speeding up recovery. How exactly do I apply the propolis? Do I just drop it in the socket? Soak a ball of gauze and stuff it in there? If so, how long do I keep it in there? I'm desperate for this pain to go away, it's unbearable. Please, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Robert,

I am very interested in what you have written regarding Sinus Infections. I am a Nurse and work in an environment where MRSA is prevalent and believe I have a colonization in my sinus area. I would love to try this spray. I have Oregano Oil. Is this too strong? I am not familiar with Oregano Juice, but live in an area where there are many resources for natural products. I am willing to try anything at this point. I didn't know what was happening in my left nostril for the past two years. I would get a dry crust inside my nose at night and it would blow out when I used a tissue in the morning. I thought it was a from the dry air in my home. It progressed to these sores that crust over. Now it is spreading to my right nostril. Funny thing is I work in ENT and the docs checked me at work and were like, "Oh you hava a staph colonization, more than likely, just use mupuricin for 6 weeks." Thanks doc! Anyhow, OI would really like to try the Oregano Juice and was looking to see if the oil would work if it was diluted.

Thanks, and I hope to hear from you soon.

Kathy

Low BCAA Protein Diet for Depression

Wed, 27 Apr 16 21:48:38 -0500
Posted by Lilac (New England) on 04/27/2016

[YEA]  I am tremendously helped with my chronic depression by a diet that cuts way down on Branched-Chain Amino Acids (BCAA's). That is because BCAA'S lower the serotonin and the dopamine in the brain. And you need serotonin and dopamine to feel good. Do your own research. Google "Branched-Chain Amino Acids and Depression."

To experiment with this, try this diet for a few days to a week and see if it works for you:

Vegan + no or very limited nuts, beans, & seeds. Simple.

Explained in more detail:

Vegan means no beef, chicken, lamb, pork, ham, cold cuts, turkey, eggs, dairy (no yogurt, cheese, milk, etc.) IN OTHER WORDS NO ANIMAL PRODUCTS OF ANY KIND EXCEPT HONEY AND GHEE ARE OKAY.

AS WELL, cut way down on these plant proteins: legumes, beans, lentils, peas, all nuts, all seeds. I remember the diet this way:

Vegan plus nuts, beans, seeds. So simple.

It's a limited diet, yes. But you may see good results, as I do. You will have more serotonin and dopamine, which will free your mind. It works for me.

Plus I uploaded my DNA results from 23andMe to Nutrahacker, and now I know what supplements/foods are good for me and which to avoid. For example I'm positive for the MTHFR mutation, so I take folate. Usually one with the MTHFR mutation takes methylfolate, but Nutrahacker tells me I don't tolerate methyl groups well, so It take folinic acid instead. Nutrahacker told me lots else, too. For example I have the CBS mutation, which means I must follow a low-protein, low thiols sulfur diet. No time to go into it all here. It will cost you around $199.00 for 23andMe plus around $35.00 for Nutrahacker. You will never regret it.

For me, my Nutrahacker results plus the low BCAA diet and low sulfur diet is great. Take it from someone who has searched high and low to cure my dysthymia, and doesn't like pharmaceuticals.

Methylfolate is especially helpful if someone has mutations on the MTHFR gene. You can find out by getting your DNA sequenced by 23andMe, and then uploading your results to a number of good online apps, like geneticgenie or nutrahacker. See the work of Amy Yasko. SNPedia is also helpful...search for MTHFR.

Google search: h pylori

Your Primary Physician can give you a breath test, to see if you have h pylori. At the Doctors office they have you breath into a bag then you drink a (what they call) cocktail. 15 minutes. later you breath into another bag. It gets sent out, and you get back the results in about a week. Better to know and treat, than not to know. Best wishes!
