Hi I read your post and my 3 year old son is going through blepharitis. The light sensitivity is the worst for him and he itches and rubs his eyes. Could you please tell me what kind od honey you used? Would mean so much to him and me.

Dear Agnes,

I am so happy to hear that your pain has improved.

I know of Serrapeptase for dissolving scar tissue but do not have much experience with it.

Goldenseal and slippery elm are both wonderful if you can get some. I have used them both internally and externally with good results.

I have used calendula and chamomile topically for inflammation and infection. I have made topicals with these ingredients and have seen them for sale but would have no idea if you would have that available near you and could be sure of high quality.

That is concerning that you woke up with your leg showing some symptoms. Have you begun to treat it? How much turmeric and garlic are you taking? Do you have a follow up appointment with your health care provider?

Another remedy to look in to would be Manuka Honey, by the way.

Dear Agnes,

Well, I absolutely love to walk in the woods (or anywhere in nature) and do this as able. Fall is around the corner-I try to walk most days when the weather is not extreme. But mostly I just enjoy the flowers, trees, clouds, sky, birds, and ocassionally a wild turkey or deer. Most of the herbs that I use are ones that I buy in bulk. I do finally have a couple of wonderful comfrey plants growing near my house and I have wildharvested burdock, plantain, and jewelweed. But it has all been one step at a time. I would never want someone to be discouraged that they "can't do herbal medicine" because they cannot collect or grow it themselves.

I really admire Mmsg on this forum, growing things on the balcony of her apartment. I would like to see natural remedies available to anyone who wants them. Most people can grow an aloe plant on a window sill and it has many applications. Many people can buy a bag of turmeric or cayenne pepper at a local market of some sort. There much healing benefit to be had from such! (But you are correct that it is common to doubt that a plant would be very helpful. I definitely had no idea how healing plant medicine could be! )

My hobby of nautural medicine is one that has turned out to be useful for my family. I could probably enjoy searching the globe for useful medicinal plants, but alas, I have many more interests than time to pursue them, as most people do. :)

I actually grew up in the suburbs and rarely used anything "natural." Even now, I do use over the counter or prescriptions for my family, once in a while, if it seems to be the best thing. I have been grateful for some good doctors for emergency situations over the years. But year by year we have learned and applied more natural things to our lives, and it so so satisfying to have safe, simple, inexpensive options.

While we do live on a small farm, we are not living "off the grid" or anything. If my family had to live off what we grow, we would be long dead. :) I hope to empower my children to take responsibility for their health and nutrition and at the same time be grateful for what they have whether it is home grown or from the store, an herb from the woods or a medicine from the doctor. I am not Amish, though have some Amish families that live not to far from us and we admire their resourcefulness and productivity!

I haven't worn make up regularly in decades (its just not my style)...but I am quite intrigued by the creating of make up. I have a friend that has done so and it is probably something I would have fun researching and doing if I had the time.

So here a little, there a little and we each learn a little more each day!

Hello Sharon,

You ask for some scientific report or study by scientists on Boron. A VERY scientific BOOK on the subject can be downloaded via "Google Scholar".... key words; Boron Science.

That is the book title. Be prepared for an immersion in chemistry.

If that doesn't impress you...nothing will.

[YEA]  Hello,

I have been a long time sufferer of COPD. I began using Bill's method (3% stabilized H202 in nasal spray bottle inhaled into the throat) around four years ago. I have since switched to the food grade (diluted to just over 0.5% with distilled water in my nebulizer). If you would like to use the stabilized (brown bottle), I would dilute it to about 1.5%, which is half distilled water and half peroxide. If it feels a little too strong or irritant, dilute it to 1% (1/3 peroxide with 2/3 distilled water. I only use about a teaspoon of this dilution per treatment. I am much happier with the nebulizer treatments. I have also been off of all meds and am still symptom-free. Good luck!

Hi Robert Henry,

Just wondering how you are feeling after the weekend? Since the chelation therapy has pretty much cleaned out your arteries, I imagine it was a heart rhythm or electrical glitch. You did good, my friend, with your choices of self treatment! Hope you are taking it a little easier than usual for a while and eating the just rewards of all your (and your tractor driver's) hard work this summer. Take care.

Carrageenan and Ulcerative Colitis

Mon, 24 Aug 15 22:20:17 -0500
Posted by Rene' (lark) (Texas) on 08/24/2015

[WARNING!]  Dear Fellow Sufferers,

I have done some research that has revealed a crazy element concerning my chronic colitis. Actually I thought of it from reading a post here that mentioned that carrageenan could cause diarrhea. I have been having worsening bouts for about 7 months and have been trying to figure out how my diet could have changed and what could have caused this. I had started drinking a lot more of the coconut and almond milks...this is suppose to be a GOOD thing, right? Also putting it in my Healthy whey protein drinks and smoothies. Come to find out that both the nut milks and the protein powder have carrageenan in them. Also the Aloe Vera Inner Fillet Gel that I had been drinking has it in the formula also. I am going to eliminate this immediately from my diet. I am not a very strong person, my immune system isn't so great.

Maybe this isn't your problem, but I am certainty going to find out. If you have a problem with the big 'D', it may be worth it to ck the ingredients in the 'healthy' things you have been ingesting. Bless you all.

There are a few good supplements that may be helpful for anger such as magnesium/natural calm or valerian root to calm her. EFT (emotional freedom technique) is a great tool for reducing anger. Lots of free youtube videos available to learn EFT.

Seeking Help For Recurring Sore Throat and Colds

I've been having colds and sore throat almost every month for a year. I have an active life-style, I'm trying to eat a balanced diet, but my immune system seems to be very weak. My doctor prescribes me antibiotics, but I don't think that'll solve the problem. I've always been quite healthy so I have no idea what this is. Do you have any suggestion?

  Re: Tooth Abscess

Mon, 24 Aug 15 22:11:06 -0500
Posted by Kt (Usa) on 08/24/2015

Try measuring a cap full of peroxide and a cap full of water to swish around the area several times a day. This worked for me when I had an abscess (also lower canine) that apparently broke through the gum, became red, swollen and very sore. I could rub the blister-like eruption to burst. Take special effort to keep the area clean so food debris doesn't keep getting trapped under the gum. My problem was, that tooth and the one next to it had crowns. Tiny pieces of food got trapped between the crown and the gum. Flossing helps.

Don't use the peroxide straight as it will damage tissue. (I tried that...not a good thing to do, but it did heal). That tooth had a root canal but once in awhile I can tell an abscess could be forming again, (I had the crown removed because I could not tolerate it after my teeth shifted) so I'll well moisten a brand named tea bag in very warm water and drape it over the tooth for 20 or 30 min. It will draw out pus and/or blood. There are posts here on EC about that too. I think it is recommended to use Eucalyptus, but I didn't have that available. The brand named one worked for me.

I too support the use of garlic. I had an abscess under one of my upper molars that was very painful. Using the garlic and alternating the tea bag reduced the abscess so that it was no longer visible on an x-ray and I didn't have to have the tooth extracted.

Sorry to be long-winded...hopes this helps you.

I am not sure if it is possible to edit my post, so I am adding this info in a comment instead. I would like to say that it has been over 4 1/2 years since I began inhaling H202. It has been the best thing ever. I decided to switch to food grade to avoid the stabilizers and to use the nebulizer for more effective treatments. There was no information about nebulizing it on the web when I started, so I experimented a bit and came up with a decent dilution, etc. and have been using it since. I am symptom free and am on no medications at all anymore. I would even claim to be cured if I didn't know that COPD has no cure (hmmmm).

Since my posts on EarthClinic, I have helped hundreds of people all over the world with this method. My family and I are using the inhalation method for many ailments and I have also discovered many other ways that H202 keeps us healthy. I had a blog that told my story, as well as my treatment plan, but it was through Verizon and they discontinued their blog site. I have saved all the info and hope to find the time to start another blog, but I'm so busy living! I'm also currently trying to put together an e-book, but am concerned about legal matters, so I will just keep sharing my vast H202 knowledge at every opportunity. Please try this!!! What do you have to lose?

EC Should Be Preventive Health Site

Posted by Robert Henry (Ten Mile, Tn) on 08/24/2015

HI U OLE PATOOTS DOIN, , , , , , , , , , ,

Got some troubles and it's got me to thinking after reading Mark's post about Borax and it's benefits and tribulations. Folks come to this site to learn about specific solutions to their problems, but I got another idea. Why don't we all get together and inform healthy folks how to stay healthy and avoid these trials and tribulations. I have a few ideas and most of you do also. I have tried to do this with my garden posts. It all begins with what you eat.

We all know about ACV, Borax, H2O2, Colloidal Silver, Magnesium, Water, Sweat, Sleep, Alkaline, Exercise , Breathing, Lymph flow, Detoxing, Cleansing, Baking Soda , and many, many others that will avoid illness. Let's tell these stories.

I bet Sweet Thang, Deirdre, would jump on this with both feet. We need a health site for folks to inform their neighbors how to avoid all these ailments we constantly talk about. Do these things and stay healthy. Then if stuff happens, this site will help them. First, lets change our mission.

I say all this because I constantly try to get our kids and grand children to do things to avoid health problems. EC has not done that and I think it's time. Let's get this site into a pro-active mode instead of being re-active only.

I can tell you that Mama to Many tries hard to keep her kids healthy, as do all. We just need to change our priorities. I bet folks will buy in.

 Cellulitis - Questions for Mama to Many

Mon, 24 Aug 15 21:58:43 -0500
Posted by Agnes (Warsaw) on 08/24/2015

Dear Mama,

My hand is better when it comes to pain - it ceased, I hope forever :). But colour is still too far from beig healthy and rash from using sodium bicarbonate is still present. I'm still eating a lot of turmeric and garlic and think about buying Serrapeptase. What do you think about it? I've also read about topical usage of goldenseal mixed with slippery elm but I'm notsure whether it is available in drugstores here.

Do you have any experience with applying calendula or yarrow topically as an antiflammatory agent? Could you imagine that today I wokeup with slighly swollen and red warm leg?

Maybe this cellulitis is something systemic in my body and does not affectonly one part of body? I feel that because of my sensitive skin I would have to cope with it from time to time.

Do you use for your some store-bought cream or just home-made?

I have had 3 (what I know now to be) gallbladder attacks. I take no pharmaceuticals whatsoever, and got of Prilosec months ago because I'm changing my life to as ayurvedic as possible. To the person who's taking the Prevacid: I started using pickle juice, ale vera juice and/or ACV to manage my heartburn. Took a few weeks, but it worked! I'm hoping the ACV/apple juice will take care of my gallbladder problems too, cuz I do NOT want surgery of any kind.
