How's it going? Was about to try acyclovir for genital herpes, but very leery of pharmaceuticals.

Hi Tammy - First, thank you for the information about grape seed extract for fatty liver disease.
Regarding pulmonary fibrosis, there has been very promising results using systemic enzymes (notably serrapeptase). You mentioned that your mom will be taking a product from Pivot Health. I hope that includes enzyme therapy. If not, you may want to look into serrapeptase and nattokinase.
I am so sorry for the loss of your beloved father. He is still with you in spirit and in your heart. Best of luck to you and your Mom. Take care, Bess

Hi, Megan, one of the foremost experts in the world is in Seattle at Bastyr University. I think her name is Dr. Laura Siebecker. She is a national authority on SIBO

Ted, not sure how to ask you this, hitting reply therefore...
did a similar test. not good at chem. 5 samples, very cloudy urine. Baking soda=no change; sodium citrate = no change; lemon juice = no change; potassium citrate=no change; malic acid = instantly turned it clear.
Does this mean I should take malic acid? Just wondering. I am pretty sure I have the nano bacteria stones (struvite). chanca piedra/quebra piedra is making pinhead sized whitish stones (soft) appear which is great, but probably will take forever as these are giant stones with constant pain more than 2 decades.
What do you think? If malic acid did that, what type does that suggest? I am always dehydrated from illness. I have most likely struvite stones, but probably a mix of all. I am certain I have one nano type stone from a serratia infection over 2 decades now not addressed. Chanca piedra is working beautifully as well.
One other question I forgot. Reading Ted's posts about dissolving kidney stones, and his interpretation of cloudy urine as a sign of an impending stone forming, couldn't it also be that cloudy means its a dissolved stone leaving, rather than a stone forming? I would think that when a stone forms, youre NOT passing out the sediment at all, it's staying in the kidney adhering like a pearl forms. When I am using chanca, I expect to see sediment and/or softened tiny stone pieces leaving, etc. :)

Copasetic, even thought its a year after your question, the only Bacillus Subtillis I know of is Primal Defense Ultra by Garden of Life. It should be available at any health food store near you

[NAY] Pickle juice did not work for me.. And neither did the apple cider vinegar. Actually... Nothing works for me.

Dear Foreman from Abuja, I do NOT know what the problem is with why Nigerians have such a problem purchasing BHT. BHT is a food preservative. It is NOT a drug, it is in NO way any sort of explosive substance or compound. But yet people living in Nigeria seem to have a hard time purchasing BHT. Also, people such as me who live in the USA are put on a " watch list " if we have contact with Nigerians. Is there an " non-government relief organization " Americans can send BHT to in Abuja ? The BHT costs so very little perhaps I could purchase BHT through AMAZON and have it delivered to said NGO [ Non Government Organization ] and you could pick it up from them.
I do NOT want to get in trouble with USA authorities for trying to help people in need in Nigeria. I do NOT know what the laws are in Nigeria or what the problem is all about. There seems to be some mistrust between the Government in Nigeria and the authorities here in the USA. There must be some way to work around said problems. Is there an " OXFAM AMERICA office in Abuja or a DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS office, address I can have BHT sent to in Abuja ? I want to help but do not know how to. I will try and help if I can.
You may wish to try and purchase BHT through AMAZON and see if you can or not and report back to this forum. See what you can find out and report back with what you learn. There are people who care and I am one of them. I hate all this mistrust between the peoples of our world but it is the way it is. I think just being honest is the way to go. If questioned about what BHT is, say it is a FOOD PRESERVATIVE that has been shown to help people suffering from the different viral hepatitis diseases including hepatitis B and that is why you want it. How can that be a crime ? BHT`s legal designation is a FOOD PRESERVATIVE
I have been aware of many people living in Nigeria having a bigtime problem purchasing BHT. I do NOT know why this is true, only that it is. TimH has suggested buying BHT trough AMAZON. Have ANY of you Nigerians had success doing so ? Let this forum know if you have or not. This is vitally important information. So you Nigerians need to help here by providing feedback. TimH, myself [ Oscar ] and others want to help, but you NIGERIANS are the ONLY ones who can provide answers that work. We do NOT live in Nigeria. So it is up to you NIGERIANS to come up with answers to this problem. BHT is sold as a FOOD PRESERVATVE by many retailers. The suppliers are there but have trouble selling BHT to Nigerians. I do NOT know why....Oscar

[YEA] CURE FOR FATTY LIVER
About 2005 I was a manager for GNC and my mom was putting off a total knee replacement as her first one was a horrific experience (She had her first many, many years ago and they have come a long way since). She was taking pain medication that contained a lot of acetaminophen and well above the reccommended doses as she was in extreme pain with every step. Natrually, I was extremely concerned about liver failure. I searched and searched and found that grape seed extract is the only known substance that carries acetaminophen out of the liver. I think it has to be a high dose of something like 1000 mg. a day.
At this same time her primary doctor found many fatty tumors on her liver on a routine test. On her 6 month x-ray recheck, to our supprise over half of the tumers were gone, my mom explained she was on the grape seed and he replied that only strict diet and cholesterol med would help this. When she went for her yearly follow up, all the tumors were gone and both at her 6 month and yearly check up, her liver function lab test were completely normal. She also took CLA supplements with Relacore for weight loss but only started that about four and half months into all this, don't think it had anything to do with either of the results. However, she did loose 55 lbs with it and she still continues to take grape seed today but at a lower dose.
She swears it not only cured her liver but kept her heart in good shape as that is what grape seed is known for. She was a heavy smoker for 35 years and her heart is in great shape to this day, not even a chest pain. Unfortunately, she worked in the coal mines for 15 years and has been diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis which is what has brought me to this web site. I am going to try some of the therapies suggested here and pray alot! I'm an only child and lost my dad (best friend) under severely tragic conditions in 2007 which has left me severly scarred and diagnosed with severe depression and ptsd (post tramatic stress disorder). I hope my info can help someone as I hope and prey some of these therapies will help my mom. Pay it forward. I'll keep her progress posted as she is going to try oil pulling, H2O2 therapy, aloe vera oil, and the 5 bottle pulmonary fibrosis package from Pivot health.
I'm hanging on desperately!!!

Hydrangea bought in pill/capsule form in health food stores was the American Indian medicine to take away pain in your lower abdomen! I have passed a 6mm stone without feeling it, and I recently passed a 3.5mm stone that caused me pain the first 12 hours, but after starting the lemon juice/olive oil, Hydrangea, and using an item called chanca piedra (stone breaker) my stone passed within 14 hours! (When it passed I didn't feel anything, saw the stone in the strainer! )
I keep chanca piedra, Hydrangea with 100% lemon juice and 100% olive oil in our house all the time, as my cat scan a few years back showed I had 9 stones, 4 in one kidney, 5 in another! I've passed at least 5 of them, and all with little problem! When we travel, we take these items with us just in case!
My Doctor's office was amazed when I brought the 6mm stone in and told them it was pain free!

Vitamin B3 therapy cures alcoholism, anxiety, tension and, even, schizophrenia
Back in 1960, 'Bill W.', co-founder of Alcoholics Anonymous, (Bill Wilson) met Abram Hofer, M.D., Ph.D. - who introduced Bill to the amazing healing potential of mega vitamin therapy. Dr. Hofer had lots of success treating schizophrenic patients - who also suffered from alcohol addiction and depression. Naturally, Bill W. was very curious - to say the least - and started to take 3,000 mg. of vitamin B3 per day.
After a few weeks, the fatigue and depression that plagued Bill W., for years, was gone. To make a long story short, Bill W. gave 30 of his close friends in Alcoholics Anonymous the same therapy and, within 6 months, he was convinced vitamin B3 would be very helpful for alcoholics. Unfortunately, as I'm sure you could guess by now, many of his appointed 'medical experts' did not like his excitement over a vitamin therapy to treat health problems and, to this date, vitamin B3 therapy remains a 'secret' to millions of needy individuals.

Thanks for the suggestions. I put a glob of castor oil in my eye and took a nap. When I woke up I used a little medicine cup, which fit perfectly over my eye, filled with colloidal silver and washed my eye for a minute or two. Then I laid on my back on the bed with my head hanging off... neck arched back over the edge of the bed. I pulled my eyelid open to make a little pocket for the silver and let gravity take it down into my upper eyelid. I let that sit in there for a minute or two. Did some blinking and repeated. I then closed my eyes for 20 minutes or so. When I got up, it was completely back to normal! Not sure exactly what it was that did the trick nor did I see anything come out, but it definitely worked. I wanted to share the results... and say thanks for the help!

Hi Angela -- Can you tell me what worked and didn't work with the treatment for your "new miracle man" father? :) My mother has been recently diagnosed with ALS. Thanks in advance!
Fri, 18 Jul 14 20:51:46 -0500
My 74 year old mother was recently diagnosed with ALS/MND/Lou Gehrig's disease after failing to recover from neck and shoulder surgery. She has lost movement in her arms, legs and has trouble speaking and breathing. I have been reading Ted's posts for natural cures and I am wondering if he has any updated information? In one post he recommends L-Glutamine but it is advised against on other websites since over-production of glutamate is a problem in ALS patients. I believe his last post on this issue was 2 years ago. Any additional information on his most recent cases/successes would be helpful. ps: Mom loves the clove oil massages and said she smells like Christmas spice candy! :)

[YEA] I wanted to add my comments as I too have tried many of the normal suggestions with little result for angular chelitis. I actually stumbled on Milk of Magnesia by accident. I tried it one day when I noticed the cracks returning-yet-again.
Milk of Magnesia works!! Any time I feel that dry/tingly feeling like the corner of my mouth is about to crack again- I do the following and have had great results nipping it in the bud before it actually becomes red or inflamed.
1. Wash area with dish soap and let air dry.
2. I take a dab of Milk of Magnesia (plain only) and well saturate the crack/corner of mouth. Let air dry.
**I think the main way this works is that it gets deep into the cracks and dries- keeping that area dry and unable to sustain yeast or bacteria.
3. After about a half hour I rinse it off and put a thin coat of plain aloe gel. Let dry.
I have found that doing this before bed is a huge help. Normally when I wake up, it is gone or in the process of healing. I like to keep the aloe handy and reapply before eating (this seems to help it from tearing when taking big bites or chewing).
I hope that this helps someone! I was really surprised how well Milk of Magnesia worked for this. On a side note- MoM can also be used as a deodorant. It works really well for stinky armpit sweat. Apply after shower- let dry completely (I stand in front of a fan :) and off you go. No pit stains, no smell and no residue on your shirts.

[YEA] I felt an oncoming yeast infection, so I thought I'd do a little of everything to knock it out. I drank a couple cups of Pau d'arco tea, lots of garlic (the candida cleanse formula) tumeric, yogurt and what I really think did it... GSE. I took about 10-12 drops in about 12 oz of water. I took all of this within the span of an entire day, and by the end of it, I felt like I had a bad flu. Terrible body aches that woke me up, night sweats, headache, no appetite. This lasted for about 2.5 days. The only thing that helped mildly with the pain was vicodin (had it from wisdom teeth exaction)
I had candida coming out of everywhere.. it was nasty, but I knew it worked. Afterward I felt fine but am scared to take GSE again, at least that much. Start slow

Nicole --- I know the pain from corns. After finding that podriatists are now horribly expensive and some want you to pay a visit twice, I took foot bath with Epsom salts, a handful in hot water once or twice a day, then once every other day. This makes soft, easily treatable skin using a emery board and taking care not to injure the area with sharp objects. You can scrape with your finger nail. After each foot bath apply VCO till the next session. After a while I have had no recurrence but take Epsom salt baths regularly for the comfort and it creates pretty feet. And it saved $$. Hope it helps. Om

Hello, Meeya, take cold pressed castor oil and with your finger put a good glob into your eye. it is very beneficial and will deal with the pain, while healing, too. Also use externally. Om

Hi Meeya - Have you tried an eye-wash cup? It's much more effective than drops. You can get it at any pharmacy. Just fill it with solution (where I live we only have "Optrex" but I imagine your pharmacy has more of a selection), hold it firmly around your eye, blink and roll your eye around while the solution "washes" over it. Keep doing it with fresh solution until you feel the grit/eyelash come out (sometimes you can see it in the cup). It takes a bit of practice (I usually get some of the solution running down my face).
If that doesn't work, you might want to try the cures here on Earth Clinic for a sty (which can be on the outer or inner eyelid). These remedies are quite soothing for irritated eyes - compresses, warm teabag on the eye, etc.
And if that doesn't work, I would be tempted to see an optometrist to rule out any abrasion or infection.
Hope that helps. Take care and good luck! Bess

I also forgot to mention that it has all but completely killed my appetite. I noticed I can't seem to eat more than 1000 calories a day. I've been trying to force myself to eat more but just feel nauseous. I previously had zero problems eating enough.
@Timh Just because it's a naturally occurring amino acid does not mean that it won't cause problems if dosed unnecessarily. Overdosing on any essential nutrient can cause harmful side effects and even death. I have done my research and found that these are all documented side effects of 5-HTP, so clearly it doesn't work for everyone.
Also, I don't believe I need to detox. I eat very clean (paleo and mostly organic), live in a rural area, and detox several times a year. I rarely ever get sick and do not have any other symptoms that indicate toxicity.
However, thank you for your recommendations. I have tried St. Johns Wort, but it doesn't work for me either. I do take some L-Tyrosine in a supplement called True Focus, but I have never tried it separately. I did see marked improvement with SAMe in the past, but I tried 5-HTP in the hopes that a less expensive alternative would work for me.
