01/05/2014: Om from Hope Bc Canada: "Frances from Missouri City, Texas

European Natural Medicine uses cabbage leaves raw. There are many testimonials as to complete cure when allopathic methods were unsuccessful.

The cabbage leaf has to be flattened well with a cookie roller so that the veins in the leaf made more pliable. Then, it has to be fastened around the area without air pockets. What to use I cannot find out but I imagine it as pure cotton gauze type of fabric and DEFINITELY not plastic. No one in Europe who uses natural medicine uses plastic. The reason being that during application emanations from the sick tissue must be able to dissipate, not forced back into the body. The final cover, pure wool.

I hope this helps. I must mention the incredible cures achieved with this method and within a short time. Om"

  Re: Colloidal Silver and DMSO for Bells Palsy
Sun, 05 Jan 14 12:38:45 -0600

01/05/2014: Dave from Fountain Inn, Sc: "Hello Mtui 036,

If the CS is causing ANY side effects...you say twitching on your face where you applied the CS topically....then don't use it. Something might be wrong with the CS.

I've never heard of a twitching reaction to CS and that is why I say, if this were me, I'd question the quality of the CS. When I've used my CS topically on occasions when I want to get the CS down into the skin, I mix the CS 50/50 with DMSO. I get the DMSO on line from Dr. Jacobs/ DMSO. I apply with a white cloth or white paper towel. (Oh, I just read a recent Contributing writer to Earth Clinic...Mama to Many...say that some bad chemicals might be left in even white paper towels! )

You can read about the use of DMSO by googling, "DMSO 60 minutes Dr Jacobs youtube" and find a wonderful interview and analysis of DMSO.

I'm intrigued by what CS you are using. Is it a cream? I don't use CS in a cream. Not that I wouldn't but I just have no experience there."

01/05/2014: Frances from Missouri City, Texas: "My husband has lymphedema in both legs. He also has congestive heart failure. His cardiologist recommended a triple dose of fluid/heart medication to cure the lymphedema, however this negatively affects his kidneys as his kidney function is already at 35%. Triple medication is not good, but it is all that we could figure to do. The medication does help, but his legs are still swollen, not as badly.

Will the cabbage poultice work with raw cabbage? It would seem that boiling the cabbage would dilute its power, but I am just guessing.

I would like to try the cabbage poultice on his legs overnight. Is there a standard recipe for the poultice? I would appreciate any positive response from someone who has actually used this. Thank you very much."

Your child deserves a sober mother and you deserve to be conscious and aware of your life. It passes quicker than you think my friend!

I was a young mother to three when I began my journey with AA. It's been 26 yrs and I love my life. This site is a great place to start your search towards health, but until you stop poisoning yourself with alcohol you chances are slim for long term good effects.

[YEA]  01/05/2014: Man from Sojournor In America: "I am wondering about turmeric in DMSO and distilled water. The solvent being DMSO. Perhaps the solvent properties of DMSO would help the turmeric active ingredient to get into the cells too? I just put a teaspoon of DMSO in to a quart (glass) of distilled water with a teaspoon of turmeric powder and tasted it and it is quite different than without the DMSO. The question is would reason, logic and common sense say add an oil like EVOO and shake up? Or would the solvent properties of DMSO be sufficient for the transport of the nutrient?"

I took a swig of it and the flavor is different. It seems easier to drink now. The DMSO seems to have countered the pungent-ness, (for a lack of a better word) of the regular drink.

Betaine HCL For Gallbladder Attacks
Sun, 05 Jan 14 08:30:30 -0600

01/05/2014: Steve from Florida: "I just hope that this message reaches as many gallbladder attack victims as possible because what I am going to state is the absolute truth and the last thing I want to see happen is another senseless surgery. When you feel an attack coming on or if it is in its peak pain just take one 600 mg tablet of betaine HCL and the attack will subside in just a few minutes. People get these attacks due to their stomachs not producing enough natural HCL. 50% of the people above 40 yrs old have this problem. HCL naturally stimulates the gallbladder to pass bile and stones through the duct. It is wise to take 100 mg of B6 each day as B6 dissolves the gall stones over time. Also, instead of waiting for a gall bladder attack to take the HCL, it is best to take one 600 mg tablet of HCL with each large protein meal. Just give our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ credit for this tremendous piece of advise."

Sun, 05 Jan 14 03:15:19 -0600

01/05/2014: Bill from San Fernando, Philippines: "Hi Tony...Castor oil is useful for two reasons. It kills candida and it also helps to gently accelerate excretion -- which further helps to remove poisons more quickly from the body. VCO also kills candida and VCO was, I think, what initially turned my own serious constipation issues back to normal stools when I took it for my own candida issues all those years ago. But I can see no objection to using castor oil, VCO or olive oil as the carrier -- it's really your preference.

Regarding turmeric, yes turmeric is oil soluble. But what they have also found out through research is that if you add a just small amount ordinary pepper to the oil/turmeric then the absorption of tumeric into the body is hugely increased."

  Re: Best Type Of Turpentine To Use
Sun, 05 Jan 14 02:50:07 -0600

01/05/2014: Bill from San Fernado, Philippines: "Hi Ruth...Yes I've seen the video on youtube with Tony Pantalleresco using Turpentine. He made a 4:1 mix with honey and turps respectively which is a quarter the dose that I recommend for adults. In the video he also takes two spoonfuls of this mix at different times. Also I think that the can of turpentine he held up was Klean Strip Green -- Pure Gum Spirit Turpentine (the green can) which is 100% gum spirits turps and can be used. I tend to avoid the kerosene brands because its so confusing and seems to vary from country to country -- Kerosene can also be called paraffin, mineral oil, white spirit etc and therefore can be quite confusing for people. So I keep it simple -- use only pure gum spirits turpentine with no additives. Walter Last also recommends an Aussie brand for the protocol called Digger's Low Odour Kerosene which is quite useful if you live in Australia.

My own way is to put one teaspoon of honey or molasses in my mouth, then put the turpentine dose (usually one teaspoon for me) in my mouth next. Then I hold it in my mouth and mix it with my saliva and then I swallow this mix and just chase it down with some water.

If you've never taken turpentine like this before, then you should start with just a 1/4 tspn of turps, with increasing drop dosages over about a week until you are taking one teaspoon. If at any time while taking this protocol you have a Herx or die off reaction or if you feel woozy, drowsy or lethargic -- then take a day off the next day and resume, at a lesser dose, thereafter.

Walter Last also seems to prefer taking the turps or kerosene with a teaspoon of castor oil. The castor oil is a useful idea because it also kills candida and beneficially tends to gently accelerate excretion -- thus removing toxins more quickly from the body. Coconut oil or olive oil can also be taken as the carrier with the turps remedy as well.

Since the turpentine that you have also contains petroleum distillate and is not pure gum spirits turpentine from a pine tree, I'm afraid that I cannot recommend it for supplementing internally."

Remedies That Helped Manage Diabetes for 25 Years

[YEA]  01/04/2014: Jolene from Albuquerque, Nm: "For blood sugar, research mulberry leaf tea and the dried mulberries as a way to remove much sugar from the blood. This was reported on Dr. Oz and I have noticed that mulberry leaf is included in many formulas for controlling the damaging symptoms of diabetes. Chromium, which appears naturally in brewer's yeast, or in supplement form and gymnema sylvestre are other supplements that help balance blood sugar levels in diabetics. I have used all of these as well as alpha lipoic acid and bitter melon to manage diabetes for over 25 years and my blood sugar usually never goes over 100."

Lie on your back with your head @ arms hanging over the edge of the bed for at least 10 minutes. The longer you stay in this position, the better. Initially you will feel pain but the more you do it, this pain will eventually disappear, as mine did after 3 days. I have not had an issue since, but it is still a good idea now @ again to through this stretching routine to maintain this condition.

Grapefruit Seed Extract for Molluscum Contagiosum
Sat, 04 Jan 14 17:15:02 -0600

[YEA]  01/04/2014: Cured from Chicago, Il: "Molluscum Contagiosum: I tried the ACV, It seemed to be helping, but was a very tedious procedure and my skin got very irritated and I hated walking around smelling like rotten apples. Despite my actions to rid the bumps, new ones kept cropping up. I was getting very frustrated and going through alot of bandaids, Q tips etc. So I decided I had to find something to fight it from the inside out, hopefully to prevent new ones from developing. I started taking 10 drops of grapefruit seed extract (GSE)in 5 oz of juice 3 times a day. Saw some improvement but not enough so I kept researching GSE, I just had a good feeling about it and since I had already bought a bottle. In my research I found that it is very effective when applied to the lesion. So I began to smear GSE all over the affected area even on the good skin in the area. The skin calmed down from the irritating ACV and the bumps just seemed to fade away without any new developments within a matter of days. I applied it for a couple more days just to stop any of those creepy buggers that decided to pop up. I'm glad I tried applying the GSE. Despite its bitter taste, the GSE is very soothing to the skin and does not burn, very simple quick procedure compared to the ACV bit. It's definitely worth a try if your efforts are not being rewarded."

The doctors always want to throw antibiotics in me. I've also tried numerous supplements & other natural remedies. They just don't work! Let me tell you why.

It's most likely not a problem with bacteria or viruses. It's more than likely due to CANDIDA. I've learned a ton of things from Bill here at EC. Prostate problems can be a problem with candida and also actually directly related to the thyroid as well. How many of you know that thyroid problems can also lead to prostate issues?

I would suggest to look at the Candida page here at EC for more help. I'm currently under the anti-candida protocol provided by Bill myself. You have to remain disciplined on the protocol & keep a positive attitude. It's not going to be an overnight cure.

Candida takes years to build up in the body but you won't see very many traditional medicine doctors acknowledge that if there life was on the line. Candida untreated can certainly lead to a number of debilitating diseases such as cancer. I really think the poster needs to consider candida as a probably cause. Thanks & God Bless!"

01/04/2014: Tony from Tn, Usa: "Thank you Bill for yet another wonderful reply. I was just curious about all of this information by Dr. Daniels in comparison to your protocol which has a lot of different treatment options. And, yes, I knew where you was going with the reply. Money talks doesn't it Bill? I assume the article you provided by Dr. Daniels was for information purposes only about turpentine and candida and not your personal views or opinion.

Especially on how to take it and the diet plan. It really doesn't make any sense in what she states about eating fruit with the turpentine protocol. She specifically states herself candida feeds on sugar which you already know but recommends eating quite a bit of fruit which is still sugar. That alone raises a red flag.

Moving on now. I see that you also provide the post by Mr Prakash. He used castor oil as well in his protocol. That's also mentioned in one of the other articles you provided in reference to turpentine/kerosene. I've been taking the turpentine with raw honey. I increased yesterday to 1/2 tsp. from 1/4 tsp. & I use 1/2 tsp. raw honey to have a 1:1 ratio.

Would you also suggest adding castor oil or another carrier oil like olive oil or coconut oil? I have both of these oils on hand but would need to buy castor oil. I already use organic olive oil as a carrier when taking my doses of turmeric. It really helps tremendously with absorption of the turmeric. Let me know your opinion. Thanks again Bill. Hope your new year is off to a wonderful, blessed, and healthy start."

  Thoughts on Safe Paper Towels?
Sat, 04 Jan 14 11:25:13 -0600

01/04/2014: Mama To Many from Tennessee, Usa: "Hi!

This week I have been using some charcoal poultices made with white paper towels on a family member, and it appears that the paper towels are causing a reaction on the skin. (The reaction area appears to be the shape of the towel and not of the charcoal within it, so I do not think it is the charcoal.)

So, I have been looking into chemicals in paper towels and it appears that they do use chemicals in paper towels to make them stronger and to bleach them. (Things like dioxin and formaldehyde.) So, I am looking in to "organic" or "green" paper towels, and see that some are "80%" post consumer waste. Well, that doesn't sound great either when using for medical purposes.

I hate to be so picky, but when using things for medical purposes, I want to find the safest thing possible. (And if something is causing a reaction, I want to avoid it altogether.)

So, instead of paper towels I am now using an old, clean, white cotton sheet cut into squares for poultices.

I am wondering if anyone has any ideas or thoughts about something that would be safe and disposable for making poultices. This may also be applicable to using paper towels to deliver DMSO.

I want to make an addendum to my "How to Make a Charcoal Poultice" post to make the process the best it can be. I am not sure paper towels are the best option now.

Thanks all. I appreciate your feedback.

Have a super day!

My friend actually wrote me the morning after her daughter's first dose; it had been the first night in 3 weeks that both she and her daughter slept through the night due to a complete cessation of coughing.

01/04/2014: Bill from San Fernando, Philippines: "Hi Robin... Regarding the problems of high total cholesterol, I do not follow the modern medical belief that high total cholesterol is bad, bad, bad.

Current opinion concerning healthy cholesterol levels follows The Lipid Theory which assumes that fats, particularly saturated fats, are bad for you.

I prefer Linus Pauling's Unified Theory concerning cholesterol which seems to make much more sense. Here is a comparison of these two theories given in a very easy to understand document which was written by a knowledgeable pharmacist that might help you to understand these two points of view:

Comparing the Unified Theory with the Lipid Theory

In your own case, your total cholesterol certainly has suddenly risen considerably. Cholesterol is needed in the body to help build and to help repair damaged cells. Therefore a sudden high rise in total cholesterol tells me that there might be damaged tissue or a damaged organ (not necessarily the heart) in your body -- which has caused the sudden rise in needed cholesterol.

Since you are also having menopause problems(you are taking Primrose oil) this could also be causing your cholesterol levels to suddenly fluctuate. Cholesterol is also essential to manufacture hormones such as testosterone and estrogen.

The best way to help both your cholesterol and menstrual issues or changes would be to supplement lugols iodine or Iodoral(lugol's iodine in a pill). Iodine helps to balance the hormones by converting estrone (strong psuedo-estrogen) to estriol (weak estrogen).

The iodine, when combined with the niacin that you are taking, should also help to safely lower cholesterol levels and also help reduce any menstrual issues.

If you decide to take the Iodine Protocol then you should take all the iodine companion nutrients as advised in this document:

A Guide to Supplementing Iodine"

Also, you should include some herbal liver support because the liver is the metabolic factory for cholesterol (as one poster verified). Here's a list: Milk Thistle Seed, Artichoke Leaves, Dandelion Root, Burdock Root, Yellowdock Root, Beet Root. Try to find an otc product w/ as many of these herbs in combination as possible. These will increase bile flow which also increases the solubility of fats. Triple strength lecithin also increases the solubility of cholesterol."

It appears that my heavy metal load has finally decreased and my liver function is better than several yrs past, so I am hopeful yet.

I am more in belief that the autoimmunity problem which stems directly from the lung fibrosis is the single major detriment to any kind of substantial recovery.

I get noticeable improvement fallowing Glucosamine (as it relates to promoting mucus secretions in the lung of which appears I am deficient), Hawthorn also helps (proly something to do w/ antioxidant protection reducing inflammation). Beginning trials w/ Valerian & Calms Forte' seem promising. LDN seems very promising as well as Cannabis (unfortunately I don't live in Colorado).

01/03/2014: Bill from San Fernando, Philippines: "Hi Timh...Fungal infections in the backbone and in the synovial fluids can cause considerable problems as regards adequate delivery of curative nutrients because of the blood/bone or blood/brain barrier.

I've recently found out that artemisinin(ART) seems to be very useful against fungus, viruses, various bacteria and mycoplasma. Furthermore, artemisinin is easily able to penetrate the blood/brain barrier -- so it should perhaps be effective in the backbone area as well. Some research here and here.

The way ART works is that it contains a peroxide bridge on its molecule. Similar to Vitamin C, ART can also look like sugar to candida. When the ART gets inside a candida cell then ART reacts with the iron in the candida cell(candida loves ferritin or iron) to produce reactive oxygen species or free radicals(same as MMS and H2O2) only this happens inside the candida cell, not outside. Consequently the candida cells -- not the host cells -- are destroyed. This ART pro-oxidant method of kill is also similar against other pathogens. Also, candida biofilms contain alot of iron, so ART may well be effective at rapidly destroying candida biofilms. I've also read where ART is being successfully used against malaria and cancer(in Vietnam and China). Other posts show that people are using ART against particularly nasty diseases like Morgellons and Lyme Disease -- which can also involve candida.

I've also read where an 81 year old man in California with skin melanomas cured this problems using DMSO and ART. One ART pill in DMSO. His wife also had melanomas and was also cured by this method. See this link. So I was just thinking that using DMSO witand remove h ART on your backbone might be a more focused protocol to help kill the fungus/pathogens inside the backbone area. DMSO, as a carrier, is easily able to transport nutrients through the skin, blood/brain and blood/bone barriers of the body. DMSO with Iodine might also work. Unfortunately, turpentine is insoluble in DMSO, so you cannot use it with DMSO, more's the pity."

01/03/2014: Bill from San Fernando, Philippines: "Hi Tony...Although I am very impressed with how turpentine can help people with disease, I admit to being highly unimpressed with Dr Daniels approach to helping sufferers get rid of candida for the following reasons:

* First, in this document, Dr Daniels tells the story of how she discovered that American slaves in the early 1800s used turpentine combined with sugar in a secret remedy to cure all their ills. Then she insists that only cubed sugar will work with turpentine against candida. Well, I'm sorry but there was no cubed sugar in the early 1800s during the slave period -- so how did the American slaves really take their turpentine remedy? Most likely, they must have taken it with either cane sugar syrup, molasses or honey.

* Secondly, I recently put up a post about a man (Mr Prakash) who is successfully curing his son's candida, parasites and autism with the turpentine protocol. Here is the post. The method he used was to combine castor oil with honey or molasses with the turpentine(Walter Last's method). He has had tremendous success against his two-year-old son's parasites, candida with significant improvement in his son's Autism using both MMS and turpentine. Please also note Mr Prakash was not using Dr Daniels method of taking cubed sugar with turpentine.

* Mr Prakash also directly contacted Dr Daniels, wanting to know more about her turpentine protocol and got a reply from her marketing manager who offered Mr Prakash a special Diet Plan, nutrients with the turpentine protocol including personal communication and advice from Dr Daniels for only $4, 500. I advised Mr Prakash not to take this deal. He emailed back his refusal. The marketing manager then emailed him back saying that he was in luck -- there was a special offer and it would only now cost him $1000 for the plan. Etc, etc --- I think you know where this is going.

* Dr Daniels has never written a full blown book explaining her candida turpentine protocol in detail. However, she has written several books on beauty, health and diet -- but no book on her turpentine candida cure protocol.

Too many secrets. Secrets are always expensive."
