 Re: Questions About Edema

Thanks for ur reply sir Mmsg, Europe..

Can Some one help me with the question that I have..

Edema is a condition in which fluid accumulates in the lungs, usually because the heart's left ventricle doesn't pump adequately. Edema can occur in either 1.Lungs or 2.Cells

I have a doubt, Is there any Test or Diagnosis through which we can find out, is it Cellular Edema or Edema in lungs..?

Waiting for valuable reply, thanks in advance.

Vitamin C Helping To Diminish Tiny Warts Inside Nose

Wed, 29 Apr 15 10:05:23 -0500
Posted by Mia (Asheville, Nc) on 04/29/2015

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  I have had a couple tiny warts on the inside of my nose for several years. I have used either castor oil and coconut oil regularly. (It seems to keep them small and without pain.) However, recently, I had a blood test that revealed my Vitamin C level was virtually non-existent, so I began taking 1000 mg morning and night of ascorbic acid Over the past few weeks, I have felt the warts diminishing. The cartilage which had thinned in that area seems to be returning to a more normal state. I'll be keeping up this regimen!

[YEA]  Hi, I've had grovers on and off for four years! Nothing from doc has worked for me. So decided to look at my diet and found out that wheat and glutton can cause skin problems.. I have not had wheat or glutton for 3 weeks and it has completely disappeared.. I also used Camoline lotion. Which is fab for the itching! I'm over the moon as I had it on my chest.. So I recommend to u all to just try a wheat and glutton free diet..i saw a difference in a week.There are so many alternative food to choose from now.. Good luck fellow grovers Gina

Will Borax Help Incredibly Painful Calcifications in Shoulders?

Wed, 29 Apr 15 09:56:00 -0500
Posted by Natascha (South Africa) on 04/29/2015

Good day,

I would like to find out, if Borax would help for calsification. I have calsification in both my shoulders, I went for operations on both side already, but it came back within 3 months twice the size. My Dr.says my calsification is very aggressive, and he has never seen something like this before. I've tried every pain pill and inflammatory pill there is, nothing seems to work. I even got Sovenor plasters, but I'm allergic to it although it worked for a week.

My question is, will Borax work for me, I'm willing to try anything at this stage. I heard from a friend that it might work. This pain is too much, and I'm constantly feeling tired. Hope to hear from you soon. Natascha

Apple Cider Vinegar for Hemorrhoids

Wed, 29 Apr 15 09:52:45 -0500
Posted by Vanessa (Gainesville, Florida) on 04/29/2015

[YEA]  Hey everyone so I never really noticed my internal hemorrhoids until they recently became external. I am only 22 but I distinctly remember not eating well (skipping meals and not drinking water) for final exams and this is what resulted. Apple Cider Vinegar is great at shrinking the blood supply to the hemorrhoids in order for them to go away and I have also used it for some skin tags I got back there. VERY effective. I will let you know how well it works for my NEW external Hems :(

Apple Cider Vinegar, Eggplant for Actinic (Solar) Keratosis

Wed, 29 Apr 15 09:43:02 -0500
Posted by Linda (Seattle) on 04/29/2015

[YEA]  This is my first time posting and I'm unsure if this is the right place to post about this cure. So my apologies if it's not.

I've had 3 rough red spots on the bridge of my nose for a number of years. Doc said they were actinic keratosis (ak) and to keep an eye on them since they can occasionally turn into cancer. They were unsightly and would sometimes get inflamed a little and peel, so I wanted to get rid of them. It's not uncommon for bruises, cuts and other injuries to leave marks on my skin for a long time after they've healed up, so I didn't want to do the cut or burn approach and have marks from that for a year, so I started looking for alternative treatments.

I read about using eggplant and ACV on AKs, so I blended up an eggplant with raw ACV and let it sit in the fridge for a day. Then I'd apply a thick layer of that paste to the lesions and leave it on overnight (uncovered). In the morning the paste would be dried up and firmly attached to the AKs and I had to peel them off or wash them off with lots of water and patience. The AKs got pretty inflammed and sore after a couple of days, then they started to weep and bleed a little. But only the AKs reacted. The rest of the skin in the treated area showed absolutely no reaction to the paste. About 5 days into the treatment the area was pretty sore and inflamed, so I stopped treatment for a couple of days to let it rest. Then I resumed treatment.

There was one spot on the right side of my nose that had been slightly pink, but had never had a visible AK. It got inflammed and sore too, so I assume it was an AK that hadn't surfaced yet.

About a week into treatment the AKs started going away. The AKs started sloughing and the redness and inflammation subsided. Four small pimples popped up on the edge of a couple of the AKs. They were small but quite sore. They lasted for about a week, then they peeled and fell off too. I continued to apply the paste for another week. But when the AKs started peeling the skin stopped reacting to the paste and nothing more happed, so I quit using it.

It's been about 4 weeks since I started the treatment, and at this point the areas where the AKs were are a light pink color, but all of the skin there is soft and smooth now. So for me the eggplant/ACV paste was a success. And it was cheap and easy too. Just one eggplant and about a half of a cup of raw ACV vinegar.

 Re: Olive Leaf, Turmeric for a Bladder Infection

Posted by Kelly (Toronto) on 04/28/2015

[YEA]  This is my favorite treatment for a uti that is full-blown, about to come on or used as a preventative. Olive leaf works to kill the bacteria causing the infection while turmeric acts as an anti-inflammatory and biofilm disrupter. For a while I was using olive leaf on it's own but it wasn't always strong enough. Olive leaf plus turmeric is a potent combo. I take 3-4 caps of olive leaf and 1-2 caps of turmeric, until symptoms dissipate.

Is the castor oil, lavender and lemongrass still working for you? I just got diagnosed and am frightened. Desperate you might say. Thank you

Yes, it can do this and it is normal. Your body is trying to stabilize your hormones and this may cause your periods to be irregular. With continued use, it will stabilize.

 Re: MSM Helps Rheumatoid Arthritis, But Causes Heart Palps and Breathing Issues

Posted by Sp (New Jersey) on 04/28/2015

Hi Joi, MSM and vitamin C do work synergistically together, but I have no idea if it would help with the heart palpitations. I used to take MSM for my full body arthritis but what really did the trick for me was going 100% gluten free. Within the first week I could feel the difference and in a matter of months I felt so much better I could walk and take stairs without pain. It's hard to go 100% gluten free, but it's worth a try. It's so worth it for me. Good luck.

Iodine sounds like a good idea or maybe seaweed. Don't forget to eat 1 or 2 brazil nuts with any iodine so you get selenium to protect. Also I think Vitamin K-2 may channel calcium correctly. Google Chris Kresser and kidney stones. It's worth a try.

To Itchy in Silver Spring, do yourself a huge favor and chuck the couch before it spreads, which it will do rapidly if you don"t.

Looks like chronic infections are responsible for loss of smell most likely through Zinc deficiency (as zinc is depleted by infections). Any number of natural antibiotic remedies plus Zinc/Vit-A supplementation would be advised.

ORH: I hope to one day have a veggie garden, fruit orchard, a few egg Hens, and a pond full of fat catfish, all for the harvesting. For red meat I don't think I have enough disregard to kill a Deer so would proly opt for the grocer on that one.

Anyway, yesterday I bought a pack of "reduced for quicksale" Strawberries w/ the hope I could clean em' up for consumption. I cut away the worst parts and placed the berries in a plastic container and added a cup of water and 1/2 cup Colloidal Silver. Have had two large serving and zero gut infection, so hurray on that.

Also, lately I have gone back on Milk because my metabolism and appetite is increasing. I still need to take Strontium Citrate caps as my mineral deficiencies cause me to take on radiation rapidly. Living by oneself is a disadvantage in food wise. So, I have found an effective way of keeping that milk from spoiling. After consuming about half a container (1/2 or 1 gal) add a few spoons of Colloidal Silver and you're good for several more days; maybe as much as doubling the shelf-life of the Milk.
