 Re: Apple Cider Vinegar for Cyst

Apple cider vinegar is safe for all sorts of things. If the above woman applied it to her cyst then she applied it within the walls of the vagina, since that is where the Bartholin's cyst is. Thus, I would have to say it is safe. If you want to start out with a diluted substance just to be safe you could mix a tsp. of ACV with 1-2 tsp. water and dip a cotton ball in that and apply. I'm going to be trying full strength ACV on my cyst. Up until now I hadn't seen this option, only some essential oil and turmeric options. I have tried some essential oils (different combos of Juniper Berry, Cypress, Chamomile, Lavender, frankincense and Tea tree, even adding peppermint on one occasion), and my cyst seems to shrink some with those, but I have not been able to make it go away.

Good luck with yours!

Drinking urine usually requires a vegetarian diet. Meat eaters will get an extremely salty solution so very unpalatable.

Moonie64 --- I have tried turmeric in whey powder and water for a liver complaint for a month. It may have had a good effect elsewhere but I noticed no improvement.

I am always taking Milk Thistle as a tincture and it works very well. It can be taken several times a day. For the abscess type of complaint try ESSIAC tea from Essiac West online. It really addresses these things. I am taking it at the present time.

Namaste, Om

Hi, Greg from Arkansas US ---

About colloidal silver. Years ago a kind scientist in the US taught a lot of people about the benefits of making colloidal silver. On the DVD I saw that he had a headful of hair in dark colour. He mentioned that he was bald before but had misted his hair with CS and his hair had regrown even in its original colour. He said that many people have parasites and that was also seconded by another healer - he said the same.

For some hair trouble in those days that were the last to ever to visit a "doctor", I was given a bottle with a liquid which made my head literally spin. That was the last time I trusted a "doctor". It does not have affected my brain, to be grateful for.

Through urine therapy I gained a beautiful head of hair admired by many. It took most over a year, though. Patience is required.

Namaste, Om

OP is different from UT obviously, but why to compare the two is because, in some respects UT and OP both are same. But UT is more powerful than OP. Furthermore, from the composition of ingredients, UT and OP are 100% different from each other. as U (Urine) has the original and exact components that our body really requires whereas the O (Oil) is not so.

So far, not only the good olden natural therapists of various religions of this world did kept the importance of U secret, but even the scientific world too done so. Science has already done adequate research on U but just for its own existence it had kept secret many results of its research and did not make the people aware of the the unparalleled and unique curing ability of urine, the urea and other components of which it used for making many types of medicine. Therefore, it is the time for all of us to be scientific and to discuss about it universally so that all and sundry will come to know the fact that the Urine is a "panacea", and a single, priceless and universal remedy for every health problem pertaining to our mind and body.

I am just a beginner and not too experienced to discuss too much on UT. I just put a budding thought on UT and raised few questions, thats all.

But, Mr. Om ... you have not given any answer to my question just thinking that its all a rambling discussion, but the same is not so. Try to answer my question please or else keep just watching. Thank you for your reply.

Hair Loss from Lichen Planopilaris

Mon, 20 Oct 14 12:23:13 -0500

Posted by Greg (Arkansas, US) on 10/20/2014

Lichen planopilaris:

Hello, I initially noticed hair shedding about a year ago, and didn't realize what it was. I became concerned, especially since I had just underwent a hair transplant in the frontal region about two years ago and am on Rogaine and Propecia to maintain the rest. To say the least, being diagnosed (after biopsy) a couple months ago with scarring alopecia, it was quite a hit to the old psyche. Not a lot out there from what I read in terms of cure, but it seems that people are trying many things to stop it. I was put on clobetasol and Doxycylene by my derm, but something made my head really become enflamed. Now she wants to put me on steroid shots (already did) in my scalp every 4-6 weeks as well as plaquenil. I guess I have to have an eye exam before they will put me on the plaquenil.

I have also been going to a nutritionist and started eating gluten-free. Haven't really seen any changes yet, but I am praying and believing that this stops. I read the 'death sentences" to the hair from a lot of people, and maybe it's denial, maybe it's my faith, but I really just refuse to believe that. I was already planning on getting another transplant in the back at some point soon, but I know I need to have this condition go away beforehand.

Seems not a lot of guys talking about dealing with this, so I feel like a minority for sure. Not too sure what caused it (they say an inflammatory auto-immune) disorder but that's about it.

Any advice or recommendations are always welcomed that seem to have really worked. Also, I have tried to find support groups, but not a lot out there specifically for the scalp condition.

I guess most guys just go bald, but I don't want to. I like my hair and kinda want to keep it. Been really struggling each day with this and my confidence has definitely taken a hit. Have a lot of other stuff going for me, but this one has gotten me kind of down at times.

Thanks for listening. Greg

Apple Cider Vinegar for Hemorrohoids

Mon, 20 Oct 14 12:21:13 -0500

Posted by Michael (Florida) on 10/20/2014

[YEA]  ACV for hemorrhoids...amazing. I'm a 57 yo healthy male. I suffer from internal and external. Tried numerous other methods over the last 8 years. Flare ups are kept mostly in check, but if my diet sways, or I overexert myself, I'm miserable for days on end, starting from discomfort felt in my anus. Not to mention, it's so embarrassing. I started treating with ACV yesterday after reading numerous posts on here and different treatment methods. The change has been incredible. Yes, is stings, but it doesn't last long and not as severe as the piles. I read about numerous people using cotton balls, but I will say, my method is pretty simple and not messy. I have a small narrow jar (from sesame seeds/spice) with ACV/Water 2:1 ratio mix that I keep next to the toilet, fold over 3 sheets of TP, place on top of the open jar, flip to soak, then place that up directly on the area, tuck up in gently and lean on one cheek for a few minutes to soak in. Remove that one and do once again. All flush-able. I'm doing that after every bowel movement and a couple other times during the day. The swelling has gone way down, the pain is gone and hardly any bleeding now. Keep in mind, I had a steady stream of blood come out for days while trying to go poo from the internal roids and external were bleeding also. I'm truly amazed. Not something fun to talk about, but why isn't this more widely know??? Please try ACV, you won't be disappointed.

There is an alternative to medical marijuana. It's a hemp extract and is available in various states where medical marijuana is not. It's called hemp oil. It's not full of THC.

Dear Kumar,

I am from south india. Your fact is totally baseless, there is no data or truth that 95% of the children below 5 years are eating SOY or soy based products. Let me explain.

Before the globalization and advent of foreign companies in India, specifically quoting the 'Software Boom'. Most of the population were on the rural sides of the States in India. Including Hyderabad, Bangalore, chennai.

A child after birth is raised in the following ways, hope you would agree that.

For the first 3 months, the infant is given only mother's milk that build the total immunity of the child.

After 3 months, may be from the 4th month the infant is still given THE WHITE GOLD MOTHER'S MILK. And slowly introduced with solid foods, that are traditionally made. Like rice porridge, mashed IDLI, curd rice, nicely boiled DAL rice Sambar(without spice) - (for other country people, these are made with rice and lentils only - traditionally grown). And some suplement milk products that are wholely made with milk.

Usually, a mother breast feeds her child till one and a half years some continue till 2 years.

After 1 year, each and every child only eats only the home made food, rice, sambar, dosa, idli, vada, porridge, boiled vegetables. till the age 5. soy was not part of the food culture in india till 2000, (even till date)

In 1970's there were no SOY products in india, SOYA was not even cultivated in 1 percent of the lands. If you know about it. There were few milk supplement products India in 1970's that where made with non-homogenized milks. Lactogen, Farex, Cerelac, Nestum. And most of the milk produced were from the exotic breeds from south india. Not the western Holstien Freezian , Redden, Jersey's (Jersey's milk is good when compared to Holstiens).

So literally no allergens in the food, before the introduction of GMO foods. And even if there are allergens, the immunity developed by the MOTHER'S MILK given for nearly 1-2 years takes care of it.

Well after 2000, still most of the population resides in the VILLAGES of India, not in cities. If you exactly count the type of foods eaten by the people. It will be NON-GMO foods. There is only little amount of GMO FOODS is eaten by the children and people mostly by the city people.

Moreover, South Indian food culture has balanced foods. For Sambar(made with lentils) is nutritious, Curd Rice(Rice mixed with Yoghurt) is probiotic, Rasam or Thilli Saru (made with tamarind Juice, is an excellent digestion enhancer and detoxifier).

So, I would say the food culture, food habits and Cultural Breast Feeding Habits takes care of allergens, so there is less allergy.

With respect to SOY, SOY has complex protein chains. So the East Asian people, only use the SOY after fermenting it. They never consume it cooked. TOFU, SOY SAUCE, NATTO, MISSO are all fermented soy that what they use it most.

Only in recent times, SOYA is promoted in India. GMO foods are certainly allergic, but the allergic reaction is determined by the IMMUNITY of the people consuming it.

If you think consuming SOY(raw and cooked) is not affecting one's health then just wait for another 5 years and see the results.

The total consumed food by the Indian population is NON-GMO that is the reason there are less allergies(there are other factors too like - pollen, steroid injected broilers, too much of vaccines, enzyme activated washing detergents, perfumes, deodorants).

Now indian government has allowed testing of GMO foods in their lands. Well God save this land.

Fortunately, State of Tamil Nadu has banned any types of GMO crops to be tested or cultivated in the lands of Tamil Nadu. I wish other States follow the same.

Good Health.

Dear Aditi,

I am sorry I have not responded. I was out of town for a few days last week and must have missed your post.

Earth Clinic does not have any physical clinics--it is all online with mostly laypeople sharing their experiences.

If you have had many tests in the past and nothing has been detected, then it might be that you would just want to try different natural remedies and see if one will work for you. I have found many solutions to health problems this way. Sometimes the first thing I try works. Sometimes it takes lots of trial and error.

Anyway, if I were in your situation, I would try the things I mentioned in my last post and see if you notice any improvement. For the record, I am not a health professional. Just a mom who loves natural remedies and helping others.

Let us know how it goes!

~Mama to Many~

HI U COUSIN MMSG, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , I thank you for the boost, but I only know what I've experienced or read. Your problem, I have experienced and you make the decision. I had a skin cancer and had my doctor remove it. It came back and I treated it with Curaderm, which is an egg plant ointment discovered by a microbiologist in Australia. They ran him out of that country , but you can buy it on the internet. The cancer turned black and hard and soon fell off. It left no scar. Research this and make your own decision.

My Anti aging doctor says I'm in deep dodo in my gut. That is where your immune system is located and no wonder I have blood cancer. We are addressing that. I am calling off my visit to Nv. and Dr Shellangeberger because of my health situation and the Ebola thing. I want to thank all the bright folks on this site that are addressing this Ebola problem.
