 Re: Robert Henry's Cleansing Formula

Dear Robert Henry,

My nettle is "stinging nettle." It doesn't seem to be the same thing as "bull nettle." Though I would not be surprised if they had similar properties. When I look up bull nettle, I get a lot of hits on how to get rid of it. Kind of like the herb, Plantain. Plantain is everywhere and hard to kill. And it has amazing medicinal properties!

Anyway, wish I knew that Native American recipe to bring immunity to poison ivy! Apparently, Native American's also used Jewelweed for poison ivy. We have oodles of that growing near us and I hope to make a Jewelweed tincture to try on poison ivy. I will let you know how it goes.

Yes, when I talk about charcoal, I am talking about the natural wood charcoal. I don't know why they call it "activated." I would like to make my own some time, just for fun, but that is kind of lower on my list of what I want to do with my bits of free time.

By the way, I am glad you recovered well after your ER visit. I have been praying for you, as I am for Timh now.

Your friend,

I read the book at the library when it was first out in print: Death by calcium

Calcium without enough magnesium causes a lot of health problems. constipation, calcium stones in different organs, arthritis, bones spurs, cavities, tight muscles, tension, and on and on it goes, but make sure you get the right amounts of all your minerals and keep hydrated with water and salt

Iron needs an acidic environment to be broken down into absorbable elemental iron. Ferrous sulfate is best taken on an empty stomach with a glass of orange juice for the best absorption.

30 Years of Depression Cured with Hypothyroid Medication

[YEA]  My 30 years of depression ended years ago, the day I took the proper dose (for me) of dessicated (non synthetic) thyroid medication. To cure chronic depression, the first step is to determine if you are hypo-thyroid. From my experience, forget the usual blood test and read the book on hypothyroidism by Dr Broda Barnes, md, phd (deceased) -- after years of research, he found that basal temperature (underarm temp. first thing in a.m.) is best indicator of low thyroid---if below 97.8 f.

If you have low basal temp., search on web Dr Broda Barnes, and choose an M.D. who follows his protocol---an association exists of such physicians. If you follow this advice, it could change your life forever.

Thank you so much for this information. I enjoyed reading about your success and I am happy to hear how much healthier you are, especially how much energy you have now as well.

I myself have adrenal fatigue. Every task is a colossal effort. Even after exercising or doing a chore I am still tired. Ready to rest again. After sleeping a full 8 hours or more I still desire more sleep and it's just awful to feel this lethargic. And so I am going to try some the supplements that worked for you and hopefully they too work for me. All I want is to feel better, more energy and alive again. This state is like being a waking coma. I can't wait to try the supplements and again I thank you for sharing your really inspiring story.

Garlic as Preventative for Flu

[YEA]  I put 1 clove of crushed garlic for each of my baby's socks when he had colds. I put 1 pair of socks on his feet then the socks with garlic next. This is the only remedy that I have tried for his colds from 1 month to 1 year old. It only took 2 applications for him to recover from the early signs of colds.

HI U MAMA TO MANY, , , , , , , , , , thank you for responding. It shor is better to avoid problems with cleanses as our ancestors did. You mentioned Nettle. Is this what we call Bull Nettle?

When I worked in SW Arkansas in the 70's there was a fellow there who had a Bull Nettle recipe from the Native Americans that would make you immune to poison ivy. I never got up with the guy, but if you know this recipe then there are lots of folks that will dance at your next wedding.

When you mention charcoal, that resonates with me because there is natural wood charcoal and then there are briquettes. Most Briquettes are fly ash from industry and contain lots of toxins. In the paper industry we sold our bark fly ash to these companies. This ash contained the chemicals the we used to process trees into pulp. You don't want to grill with this toxic stuff, but all do. Even our son who knows better, says natural charcoal burns too hot.

Anyway, your cleanses will help lots of folks avoid health problems.

Multiple Remedies for Boils

Sat, 28 Mar 15 16:49:25 -0500
Posted by Dreadfulwitchdoctor (Texas, US) on 03/28/2015

[YEA]  I don't really know whether what I have are boils, cystic acne, or something else, but they start off like zits, rarely come to a head, and last a long time before they finally shrink down to a small, hard knot, that may or may not eventually (over months or years) disappear.

Right now I'm dealing with a particularly nasty one on my chin. I made the mistake of trying to squeeze it, and I could actually see the pus spreading out underneath the skin when I did that. I knew that meant the infection would be far worse, so I came here for remedies since Earthclinic is usually one of my first stops when I'm not sure what to do.

I have a large amount of high-quality organic turmeric powder on hand, because I already take it for inflammation, liver health, and cancer prevention. In fact, I was concerned it wouldn't work, because I am already taking it, so it seems like it should already have worked. But the reviews were so overwhelmingly positive, and I know that turmeric works better in larger doses, so I took it to a new level and it is definitely helping.

Here's what I'm doing: Starting yesterday, I increased my intake of turmeric substantially. I blend my turmeric with ground milk thistle seeds, ground schizandra berries and some ground black pepper, so I'm just taking half a teaspoon of that formula every couple of hours instead of three times a day. The milk thistle at that quantity isn't an issue, and I put a smaller proportion of schizandra than the other herbs in the formula, so I'm not worried about getting too much of that. I have less still of the black pepper, so again, I'm not concerned. I don't mess with capsules or mixing it with milk or water. Capsules are too time-consuming and expensive to make, and mixing it with water just prolongs the amount of time I'm tasting it. I just dump the powder into my mouth (under the tongue to avoid accidentally inhalation which is not fun! ), then take a large swig of warm water, swish it all around in my mouth, and swallow. No worse than taking a pill, really, and cheap and easy. I take a lot of different herbs this way, so I'm used to it and it doesn't bother me at all.

Milk thistle can cause diarrhea in some people so taking it with the turmeric could hypothetically help to prevent constipation (while simultaneously giving even more support to your liver than the turmeric already provides).

I also decided to apply turmeric externally. Before doing this, I held an ice cube on the boil for as long as I could stand it. Next, I soaked a large cotton ball in witch hazel, and added one drop each of tea tree, rosemary, and basil essential oils. I took these steps to try to eliminate some of the swelling and bruising.

Then I mixed up my turmeric paste. I didn't want it to dry to a crumbly powder, so I put about a teaspoon of turmeric in a small glass container with a sealable plastic lid and moistened it with raw honey. The honey makes it sticky enough to easily adhere to the boil and it doesn't dry out. The raw honey also has anti-bacterial benefits. I also added some black pepper, and about three drops of tea tree oil and one drop of oregano oil. I spread this mixture over the boil and covered it with a bandaid. I could tell within a couple of hours that it was getting smaller, but I left it on for about five or six hours. When I took the bandaid off, I could tell it had helped.

I cleaned it up, took a bath, held a warm, soaking wet washcloth on it (frequently re-warming the washcloth in the hot bath water). I also took a handful of epsom salts I moistened with bath water and spread this over the whole area. I let that sit a while, then rinsed it off.

After the bath, I covered the entire area in bentonite clay for about an hour or two. It was very soothing and cooling.

After rinsing the clay off, I re-applied the turmeric/honey paste, and covered it with another bandaid. This stayed on all night.

This morning, the large lump was less than half the size it was yesterday. It was still dark purple and angry looking, but I could see three white spots where pus had been draining out and continued to do so. The pad of the bandaid had three corresponding globs of pus on it. I did the bentonite clay application again for about an hour, then iced it again, then re-applied the turmeric paste and covered with a new bandaid.

This afternoon, the lump is almost gone. It's still purple, but seems to be getting better. I remembered that I have a bottle of turmeric essential oil, so I added a drop to that of my paste. I haven't re-applied since I added that, so I don't know if it will increase the effectiveness or not. I will try to update to let you know. I'm thinking of adding a couple of drops of Rescue Remedy as well and possibly some chamomile tincture for inflammation.

Once I feel like the infection has completely drained, I plan to start alternating two salves to help heal the skin. I made these salves myself. One of them is made from comfrey-infused oil and has added essential oils (basil, rosemary, marjoram, and eucalyptus) and the other is made from a mixture of chamomile-infused oil and calendula-infused oil, plus kukui nut oil, shea butter and essential oils (frankincense, spikenard, patchouli, copaiba balsam, ylang ylang, and myrrh).

Oh, I also started taking a daily dose of L-Lysine yesterday. I don't know if that's helping or not.

Overall, I'm very happy that things are moving along as quickly as they are. I don't expect this will be invisible by the time I have to go to work on Monday, but I think it's going to look a lot better than it would have if I hadn't done all of the above.

Did you go to herbal and/or supplement selling shops? Some of them should have unsulphured BSM. In fact, in most cases it is the only BSM they carry. If it is unsulphured, so will be written on the bottle. If there is nothing written on the container, then it is most likely sulphured.

Goldenseal Tincture for Poison Ivy

Sat, 28 Mar 15 15:59:38 -0500
Posted by Mama to Many (Tennessee, US) on 03/28/2015

[YEA]  One of my sons had poison ivy on his forearm this week. It was painful (his poison ivy manifests with pain and not itch) and was beginning to ooze. He had been ignoring it and after a poor night sleep was wanting to be more aggressive in treating it.

He was going to be working outside and didn't want to deal with poultices or salves or anything. I thought about how I used Goldenseal powder to dry out a newborn's umbilical cord. I had some homemade Goldenseal tincture that I had been making. So we put some in a small spray bottle. Because it was an alcohol (vodka) base, it did sting when it hit the broken skin, but that passed quickly. The Goldenseal worked very, very well to dry up the poison ivy! He would reapply every 2-4 hours if he was home.

At night, I used goldenseal root powder, turmeric powder and oregon grape root powder mixed to dry up the "ooze" the first night. I sprinkled it on liberally, covered with a piece of old sheet, and attached the sheet to the arm with an old sock top. In the morning, he rinsed it off and we sprayed on more Goldenseal. He had slept much better.

It took a few days for his arm to heal up, but there were times in the past when his poison ivy took weeks to heal up, so I was pleased.

Internally, I had him taking Vitamin C (1 gram a couple of times a day), nettle leaf capsules and turmeric capsules (8 of each of those a day.)

One of my little boys had a few poison ivy blisters on his foot. The skin was not broken. We tried the goldenseal tincture spray. It did not sting and even after a couple of hours he could see improvement.

Goldenseal is an expensive herb. Supposedly, Oregon Grape Root will work as well, but I haven't tired that yet. I may make some tincture up and try that and see. I am sure I will have more opportunities this summer to try it out!

[YEA]  Wow. Thank you for advice. I had a Gallbladder attack last Monday with gallbladder infection and several large gallstones. Took doctors 10 months to wrongly diagnose my condition. It was A+E who diagnosed that I had gallbladder problems. Lots of anti-biotics and Tramodol!! I have a very good diet and exercise regularly. I read article as looking for more of a dietary solution. Found some apple cider vinegar in cupboard and mixed with "robinson" apple and blackcurrant (Boys like it! ). I could not believe it! It worked almost immediately! 2-4 minutes! Still researching, but glad I came across this article. (still require surgery) but infection will take 4-6 weeks to clear. Regards Mark.

MSM for Arthritis

Sat, 28 Mar 15 15:45:04 -0500
Posted by Chris (Lancaster, England) on 03/28/2015

[YEA]  Hi anyone with hip arthritis, I started using MSM 3yrs ago it helped with the pain but then I read that to get a significant relief if you take a higher dose, you need to take more than the stated dose on the package.

I was taking tabs 2gms a day. Now, very gradually, I take 9gms. Hey what a difference, wonderful, but I have rose hip tab as well,

I take 4 MSM with breakfast, 4 for lunch and 2 early pm with a snack.

My arthritis was caused by a very bad fall from a horse straight onto the back of my hips when I crunched into the road 18 years ago. I would hate to be without MSM. But go easy at first, just a low dose, also I take glusamine. I don't have any side effects at all and would consider taking more dosage if needed.


Melatonin for Dreaming

[YEA]  I have been taking Melatonin for 7 months now and originally started to have vivid dreams and now my dreams are much more gentle but amazing nontheless, and great sleep indeed ... I started with a cream of 50mg per night for the first two months then upped the dose to 100mg per night for 4 months then tried the 250mg SR capsules but I was a little woosy in the morning, so I stayed on the 100mg for another month and now I am almost done the bottle when finished then I will try 250mg SR again ...(SR) stands for slow release ;) eventually working up to 400 or 500 mg at this point the pineal opens up and you begin to experience the truth of who we are ;) those who have done the research already know this.
