 Re: MMS

MMS is the chemical sodium chlorite. When you mix it with vinegar or citric acid, it becomes chlorine dioxide, which kills just about any pathogen that exists. (I have been taking it nearly daily for about five years to heal my skin cancer that metastasized.) It works for anything that is caused by pathogens (bacteria, virus, fungi, parasites, etc.)

Last night I had horrible food poisoning from some fish and I took it and got nearly instant relief. I would never be without it. (It has also saved me a fortune on vet bills for my cat.) It is very inexpensive and lasts a LONG time.  

I hope that helps!

 Re: Baking Soda and Colloidal Silver

[YEA]  Regarding the Colloidal Silver...DO NOT add anything to the water, it changes the chemical structure of the silver particle, you must use pure water, I use water bought from supermarket. I own silverwell generator, look on this site for lots of great information. For toenail fungus you can spray silver on that but personally I think teatree oil would work faster.

Loved to Bicarb, could not shake a flu with mucus constantly running down back of my throat and staying in sinuses giving me dull headaches, so had enough and decided to alkalize and bicarb is most alkaline thing to use so been taking 1tsp in morning in water and because bicarb depleats magnesium been taking quarter tsp epsom salts in glass water at night. 5th day now and feeling so much better going to do this for a week until I kill it.

 Re: Magnesium for Chronic Itching and Tingling

[YEA]  You are so right about magnesium for itching! My sister was constantly itching and scratching all over her body for many months. Her doctor told her to try cleaning out her system with a laxative. She took an enema and a pill form laxative but that didn't work. An older relative of our family recommended Epsom Salt. Within hours of cleaning her system with Epsom Salt, her itching stopped. We believe she was very low in magnesium. Now, she sprays her feet once a week with a magnesium spray and the problem has not returned. It was such a relief because she suffered greatly with this affliction.

 Re: Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C

Sun, 05 Oct 14 08:05:27 -0500

Bill, Very good post about Vitamin C not being ascorbic acid. I take a Vitamin C with Rose Hips. I look at the rose hips as being the most important part. I have tended to take Vitamin C for granted without thinking about it. It is a reminder to be more discriminating when buying Vitamin C in supplement form. I know you get your nutrients from whole foods so less likely to be a problem. For people who buy supplement, this is important to know

http://www.thedoctorwithin.com/vitaminc/ascorbic-acid-is-not-vitamin-c/

"OK, natural vs. synthetic. Let's start with Vitamin C. Most sources equate vitamin C with ascorbic acid, as though they were the same thing. They're not. Ascorbic acid is an isolate, a fraction, a distillate of naturally occurring vitamin C. In addition to ascorbic acid, vitamin C must include rutin, bioflavonoids, Factor K, Factor J, Factor P, Tyrosinase, Ascorbinogen, and other components as shown in the figure below:

A s c o r b I c A c I d

ascorbinogen
bioflavonoids
rutin

tyrosinase

Factor J
Factor K
Factor P

A s c o r b I c A c id

V I T A M I N C

In addition, mineral co-factors must be available in proper amounts.

If any of these parts are missing, there is no vitamin C, no vitamin activity. When some of them are present, the body will draw on its own stores to make up the differences, so that the whole vitamin may be present. Only then will vitamin activity take place, provided that all other conditions and co-factors are present."

To drive home the point even further

"Ascorbic acid simply cannot confer vitamin activity, as taught by the discoverer of vitamin C himself, another Nobel Prize laureate, Dr. Albert Szent-Georgi.

Szent-Georgi discovered vitamin C in 1937. In all his research however, Szent-Georgi found that he could never cure scurvy with the isolated ascorbic acid itself. Realizing that he could always cure scurvy with the "impure" vitamin C found in simple foods"

So one should focus on Vitamin C COMPLEX as opposed to Vitamin C

I found a sustained release brand which contains

Vitamin C (as ascorbic acid) 1000 mg 1,667%

Bioflavonoids (from Citrus limon exocarp) (supplying active flavonones, 24% [120 mg] and active flavonols and flavones, 20% [100 mg]) 500 mg

Rutin (from Sophora japonica leaf) 100 mg

Hesperidin (from Citrus limon exocarp) 100 mg

Rose Hips (Rosa canina fruit) 100 mg

Acerola (Malpighia glabra fruit) 50 mg

Hi Tim;

You mentioned in a post to purchase pharmacy drugs online from another country.. How does one know if these are the right drugs or they are you giving you the right drug. Is this legal?? I would like to try it but I hesitate.

Magnesium for High Blood Pressure

Sun, 05 Oct 14 08:02:20 -0500

Posted by Craig (Corvallis, Or) on 10/04/2014

[YEA]  I've recently been battling high blood pressure, and did all of the things that are recommended (lower salt, increased potassium) to balance my electrolytes.

Although my blood pressure improved, it still bounced around inconsistently. I finally figured out what was missing: increased magnesium.

The RDA for magnesium is 400mg/day and my diet wasn't providing me with anything even close to that number. As a result, my blood pressure has now stabilized at 120/80 (and below). Hope this helps someone!

Apple Cider Vinegar for Nail Fungus

Posted by Frances (Anaheim, Ca) on 10/04/2014

[YEA]  Finally decided to rid the fungus from both my baby toes. UGLY! I filed the tops down and then soaked them daily in ACV, mouth wash, and hot water for 30 minutes daily. About half a cup each. I also drink a coffee cup of warm water, 2 tablespoons of organic ACV and one tablespoon of lemon juice every morning before anything else. Yes it's gross but I do it. Not only is my fungus clearing up (nail was even split) but I've lost about 5lbs. Its been about six months now. I'm going to also add tea tree oil. Thank you for this website and for all of your suggestions.

Standard naturopathic support for liver health is Milk Thistle Seed, Turmeric, Artichoke Leaves, Dandelion Root, and Lecithin. This regimen will improve the function of your current liver. Drinking Lemon water increases bile flow as does ACV.

As for independence from immunosuppressant's, there are some possibilities worth exploring. Cannabis is probably the best single natural medication to "balance" immune response be it over or under. You can now purchase legal Hemp Oil rich in CBD and low in THC w/ good potential, but the most beneficial would be high CBD & THC which is currently not legal most places.

One other "possible" remedy would be "cold showers" or "cold baths" or taking a brief walk outside on a cold day in summer cloths. This cold "shock" has remarkable qualities for "balancing" immune and endocrine systems in the body; it also has very beneficial effects on the mind.

Another possibility would be (after you begin a good health regimen as Prioris suggested, as well as tested the liver support protocol), try and slowly cut back on the mg dose of current meds.

If this doesn't go well one last effort to stretch your medication thereby reducing the cost is to do daily "zapping". Zapping very much increases the effect of most all pharmaceutical medications. In this scenario, if you could cut back as much as half your current dose w/ any help from all the above suggestions, AND incorporate zapping, it may be possible to take as little as 1/4 your current dose, which might make it financially possible to benefit sufficiently in decent health.

You might also try and purchase your meds from international pharmacies online at a lesser cost. USA pharmaceuticals are some of the most expensive in the world. Always look for "generic equivalent".

 Electro-C - Questions for Mama

Sat, 04 Oct 14 23:29:28 -0500

Posted by Mama To Many (Tennessee) on 10/04/2014

Hi Rsw,

So glad the Electro C is working well for you!

I originally got it because of the other minerals. My husband and sons work outside a lot in the summer and sweat a lot..I was looking for a healthy solution for them to replace lost minerals in sweating.

By the way, I tried Nutribiotic's Hypo Aller C and did not care for it. I don't think it was a bad product, but it did not dissolve in water and tasted chalky.

I understand about the RO water...we have lived in some places with some pretty awful water, too!

Cure for Lichen Planus

Sat, 04 Oct 14 22:12:01 -0500

Posted by Kat (Mississippi, US) on 10/04/2014

[YEA]  Common Purslane: aka duckweed, fatweed, pursley, pussley, verdolagas and wild portulaca is known to cure lichen planus according to my dentist.

Personally I have been looking for this plant and will find it.

grown in wild is better than domesticated

Purslane may be a common plant, but it is uncommonly good for you. It tops the list of plants high in vitamin E and an essential omega-3 fatty acid called alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). Purslane provides six times more vitamin E than spinach and seven times more beta carotene than carrots. It's also rich in vitamin C, magnesium, riboflavin, potassium and phosphorus.

Omega-3s are a class of polyunsaturated essential fatty acids. Your body cannot manufacture essential fatty acids, so you must get them from food. Unfortunately, the typical American diet contains too few omega-3s, a shortage that is linked to a barrage of illnesses including heart disease, cancer and Alzheimer's disease.

It would be easier to suggest something before they removed your liver but what's done is done. I don't think anyone here will have any solutions for you regarding Prograf since it is related to a transplant. I don't want to say an alternative doesn't exist but it would likely not be well known.

About 6 months ago I had a talk with this women in her late 50s who had a liver transplant about 28 years earlier. She was relatively healthy. Just took a couple medications and that was it.

I tend to avoid medications. I tell people to ween themselves off them. People are generally dealing with their own body parts. In your case, it may be prudent to stay on it even if it is immuno suppressive. I understand your fear. This may be a situation where once you go down this path, there is no return. The only thing you can do is follow thru.

I think your life expectancy will be a by product of many things. I think existing or new health conditions will be an important thing. I think it is important to live as clean a health as possible especially your diet. Some light exercise. I think you have to keep yourself from developing new medical conditions. We are not in control of everything so we all need a little luck. I also realize it is difficult to live with uncertainty.

For bile ....

I notice the medication also addresses gallstones. there are many batural remedies to removes stones also.

 Electro-C - Questions for Mama

Sat, 04 Oct 14 22:07:20 -0500

Posted by Rsw (Uniontown, Oh) on 10/04/2014

Hi Mama,

I read your article on how you are treating respiratory problems, and was interested in your reference to Electro-C. I read up on it a bit, and received my order today. I usually take a water bottle with me in the car every day, and since we have RO water, I add minerals from several sources. I am excited to have to add only 1/4 t. to get not only a large dose of Vitamin C, but also small doses of five other minerals! Thank you! I know RO water is not recommended, but when we moved to Ohio, we could not get used to the smell or taste of the water, and we invested in the RO filter and we are living with that fairly costly choice. I feel that adding this supplement is an easy way get a healthy addition to our water, and I am thankful for your advice.

In spite of what the FDA says, ascorbic Acid is NOT vitamin C, it is merely a component of vitamin C.

Your symptoms sound like wheat allergy. It's very important to get tested for celiac as it can do alot of damage. The biopsy is not necessary just a blood test.

Veterinary DMSO is pharmaceutical grade. What you MUST avoid is industrial grade primarily because of the trace solvents present.

 Re: Is Castor Oil Safe for Burning Eyes?

Sat, 04 Oct 14 22:01:36 -0500

Posted by Prioris (Florida, US) on 10/04/2014

Castor oil is perfectly safe on the eyes. Many people put it on before bed to remove cataracts. I used to think my burning eyes was due to either dryness or fluids too acidic. I came to the conclusion it was due to alkalinity from taking magnesium. Whatever it really was, I just take a 2 or 3 grams of vitamin C with Rose Hips and the burning goes away.
