Priorus, Muscle does not weigh more than fat. A pound of fat and a pound of muscle both weigh a pound!

You are correct when you say that muscle is more dense/takes up more space, but a pound of muscle 'weighs' the same as a pound of fat.

That said, I am a good example of what you were referring to. I am 5'9 (female/medium frame) and weigh 162, which sounds like a lot, but I only wear a size 8.

I weigh 162 because I work out and have lean muscle, so the 162 is deceiving. It's not fat, it's muscle. When people hear what I weigh, they say; "Get outta here! You're slim/trim. No way you weigh 162! "

So, what I think you were trying to point out, is that when you have lean muscle (vs. fat) you can weigh more but look like you weigh less. And you would be correct! :)

hey there jc, , , I'm really really happy that you found something that weaned you off smoking as it is such a destructive and terrible habit and addiction that I suffer from as I type, ,

i have read so many different posts on how to stop and i'm sure there are many peeps out there that have tried different methods to no avail, ,

but I also know of people (close friends) that smoked far more than I do that have just decided to give it up and that was that, , , they haven't smoked since that day, , ,

i almost did, , , as I been telling myself daily that I should stop, , , so I kinda cut down, , , some days would really smoke less than others and about a week ago I only had 1 ciggy the whole day, , , , but that was for that day only, , , , and now i'm smoking about 10

i wanna give up, not cut down but seem to be lacking in willpower

Is there something I can do for willpower?

Dear Oscar,

I also have chronic hepatitis B but I have not tried BHT. I have not had much pain but lately I have felt pain on my right side around my lower ribs. I have tried milk thistle and other Chinese herbs and also Ayurveda medicine but I still feel the pain. Could you please let me know your suggestions. Last time my viral load was 2500. I'm going for my next tests in October.

Thanks for your help, Rass

I can't diagnose the root cause of what is going on but I use the process of elimination method. A quick powerful way to eliminate that the root problem is not the bladder is this.

Take 500 mg Uva Ursi in glass of water with one tsp of baking soda twice a day on empty stomach. The alkaline is needed to release the active ingredient in the herb. Don't take longer than a week. It will knock the infection out pretty quickly within two days. I'd take double dose the first day.

C. difficile (antibiotic-induced very severe diarrhea) often can be controlled by taking Saccharomyces boulardii a probiotic that displaces the C. difficile bug and reflorates intestines with its beneficial yeast which will survive better than beneficial bacteria probiotics in a gut overwhelmed by C. difficile.

Re: Castor Oil for Xanthomas

hi my name is domo and I never knew what I had. The doc told me a year ago that I had Xanthoma/bumps but I had over 8 yerars now. I just saw all this on this website. I'm sick of these bumps. I need help. No docs seem like they can't help me or somthing. It's not just under my eyes, it's under my arms and between my legs. It's growning on the side of my face too. Does Castor Oil works for Xanthoma everywhere or just my face under my eyes? If it don't work out I'll try the garlic, but now HOW DO YOU USE THE Castor Oil? DO I JUST RUB IT ALL OVER? DO I LEAVE IT ON? WHAT DO I DO? I ALREADY GET HOW U USE THE Garlic but sombody please let me know how to use both of them thank you so much. I need this off my face asap.

What are niacin pills and how would that help me? I need to try much as I can. I hate these things, help me.

 Re: Try Inversion Board for Back Pain

Sun, 28 Sep 14 03:47:33 +0000

Posted by Prioris (Fl, US) on 09/27/2014

Inversion boards can work for people who have a more healthy nutrients flowing to their spinal column. Maybe it might nudge that nutrient flow also. One never knows. When I was younger, I would cure my back problems by doing a couple exercises for a couple days. Once I reached 50, it became useless. If the nutrient problem is severe, inversion boards won't work. They need a highly absorbable Hyaluronic Acid. What works at one age may not work in later years.

Everything in your post says that her colon flora is not healthy. I would try a good probiotic. I would concentrate on one with good delivery method.

Experiment probiotics that use Bio-tract deliver method and Beads (pearls) delivery method.

 Remedies Needed for Daughter's Constipation

Dear Tayna,

How old is your daughter? You say that Apple Cider Vinegar is helpful to her when she is having trouble?

A few ounces of prune juice each day, or a couple of prunes may help her.

A cup of epsom salt in the bath (soak/play for 20 minutes or so.) at night may also be helpful to her. Alternately, Natural Calm, a magnesium supplement, in some water once a day may help a lot. The amount you give would depend on her age.

When I hear coughing after eating and constipation, I wonder about a dairy intolerance. You could reduce milk products for a time and see if that helps both problems.

Our family has found nettle leaf tea to be very helpful for allergies.

 Removing Fluoride in Water - Questions for Bill

Sun, 28 Sep 14 02:05:29 +0000

Hi Diane...I really haven't got the greatest faith in Brita Water Filters:

Complaints from Consumer Affairs

I would simply find a good clean bottled source of mineral water and just use that.

Alkalizing your body and also drinking borax water(as recommended on EC) and supplementing lugols iodine will all help to remove the fluoride. Supplementing 10% sodium thiosulfate -- 6 drops in a glass of water per day -- will help you to neutralize the chlorine and will also help to detox heavy metals from your body.

 Questions About Peppermint Oil

Posted by Mama to Many (Tennessee) on 09/28/2014

Dear Eliza,

Peppermint essential oil is available many places online (Amazon, iherb, etc.) and in most health food stores.

It can be used internally, but you would only use a very small amount. I put a drop on my toothbrush with baking soda to brush my teeth. I put a drop or two in a glass of water sometimes. It is good for indigestion that way.

I think most people using the apple cider vinegar and baking soda and water are drinking it and not just rinsing their mouths with it.

 Methylene Blue and Sodium Bicarb Warning - Questions for Bill

Sun, 28 Sep 14 01:38:20 +0000

Posted by Bill (San Fernando, Philippines) on 09/28/2014

Hi David...I have never recommended the use of Methylene Blue with Sodium Bicarbonate alone. I recommend the use of Ascorbic acid that has been converted to Ascorbate with addition of Sodium Bicarbonate. Then, when you add the methylene blue, this converts the ascorbate to dehydroxyascorbate. This form of vitamin C has exactly the same properties as ascorbate -- except this form can penetrate the blood/bone and blood/brain barrier. So this form of vitamin C reaches farther in to your body.

Another reason to take MB with vitamin c is to stop its side effects -- it turns urine green and the whites of your eyes blue. MB is used as a stain in biochemistry for identifying the presence of carbohydrates. So taking taking MB with ascorbate will stop these side-effects.

MB attacks plasmodium, bacteria and fungus and is also energizing. MB has positive methylation effects and also acts to increase serotonin in the body thereby also increasing the production of T-cells and immune system lymphocytes.

You should never take MB together with SSRIs(Selective Serotonin Re-uptake Inhibitors) because this could result in overproduction of serotonin, MAOI and serotonin toxicity:

Overview of MB


I used MB frequently when I had candida problems and I also alkalized(at different times) using Sodium Bicarbonate on the same days and I have never suffered any problems with with this combination.

Don't forget that very small amounts of MB are recommended on this site -- 6 to 10 drops of 0.1% MB taken only once or twice a day. When the US troops used MB against malaria in Vietnam in the 60s -- they took stronger dosages by the spoonful.

Coconut Oil for Pink Eye

Sat, 27 Sep 14 20:12:38 +0000

Posted by Laurie (Chicago, Il) on 09/27/2014

[YEA]  My eye was blood red when I woke up. It didn't itch, burn, or have any gunk in it. It was just bright blood red taking up every white part of my eye. I tried putting ACV in it for half the day, but it just irritated my eye even more, made it burn horribly, and some how made it even more red. So I researched and found coconut oil as a remedy. I figured if it worked it would be much more soothing than the ACV. I scooped out a spoonful and warmed it in the microwave for 10-20seconds so it was a clear liquid. Then used a spoon to pour it directly into my eye. After about an hour I noticed it was less red. So I put more in every 30 min to an hour. I put some in before bed and woke up with my eye being 85% better!!!! My eye is just a slight pink like I had been rubbing it. My roommate said it was hardly noticeable. I'm going to keep putting more in every 30 min to an hour. I'm sure by tomorrow it will be back to normal. I highly recommend coconut oil for pink eye!!! It's very soothing and fast!!!! Good luck!!!

Dear reader: where can one purchase peppermint oil? Is it safe to swallow? The baking soda and ACV and water, do you drink it or swish with it and spit it out? I understand it is to remove heavy metals. Thanks

Remedies Needed for Frequent Urination Without Burning

Sat, 27 Sep 14 20:09:37 +0000

Posted by Bonbon (Pierson, Florida) on 09/27/2014

Bladder infection:

I'm female and 52. Average weight and active. I have had blood pressure issues for years. I have a phobia of the medical system for so many reasons it would take too long to explain.

Because of the bp thing I'm always concerned about my kidneys. I had blood work done going on 3 yrs ago and my kidney function was normal.

Last year I bought a infrared sauna to help with my bp and it seems to help. Unfortunately I have to rely on how I feel because I have anxiety whenever using the machines and can't get an accurate reading.

Anyway, I've been having bladder control issues and frequent urination on and off for quite sometime now. I have not had a bladder infection or uti since I can remember. Anytime I feel something coming on I grab the unsweetened cranberry juice and it's better. But last week I started feeling a little pain in my pelvic area. Didn't last long but the next day started a little pain in my back mid right side. So started the cranberry thing. I also did the Apple Cider Vinegar and baking soda. Only did it once because I'm not sure with the bp. I went and got a test kit. No bacteria but WBC showed up. So now I'm on colloidal silver, a bladder pill from the health food store that's Angelica herb, cellfood, and I've been juicing apple, celery, carrots and ginger.

I might mention that I have been off the beer and wine for awhile now. No swelling, no nausea, and I feel relatively good other than my side aches a little. Oh, and I feel like I have to pee a lot. No burning.

Any suggestions?

 Cayenne Pepper for Sleepiness/Coffee Subsitute

Sat, 27 Sep 14 20:07:21 +0000

Posted by T-ann (Florida) on 09/27/2014

[YEA]  Mama to Many--

Thanks so much for all the info you post on this website. Since I discovered the site I have tried many of the remedies and most all of them have worked! Along with many others on here, I appreciate every person who shares their knowledge. I rarely post anything because its too hard using my tablet, which is what I am on 99% of the time. I had tried the cayenne pepper in some coffee recently, for the same reason you did, and was happy that it gave me the energy to finish some household chores. I am very close to the same age as you and my main complaint about getting older is the loss of energy. Its very frustrating. Cayenne works...even though it doesn't taste so good. I plan on trying aloe vera also...adding it to a smoothie. (cut from the aloe plant). I tell everybody I know about Earthclinic and how many wonderful, natural remedies there are for just about anything that ails you. By the way, several months ago I had an ear that was closed up. It persisted for 2 weeks and almost drove me crazy. Nothing really helped too much. But cayenne came to the rescue again: immediately after I took a little (mixed) my ear made a popping sound and I could hear again! Good stuff :-)
