 Re: H2O2 Inhalation Method for COPD

Thu, 26 Feb 15 11:57:47 -0500
Posted by Jamo (Nc) on 02/26/2015

May I suggest, when performing a breathing treatment, H2O2, CS, DMSO, whatever, exhale as deeply as possible, inhale as deeply as possible and hold up to 10 seconds. As we repeat the process, we begin to breath in deeper and deeper, getting our chosen solution to the bottom of our lungs. Normal breathing only goes down into our lungs about 20% - 30% of their capacity.

So sorry to have someone unnecessarily post an email address. I wasn't sure if I were allowed to name specific products here. The supplements are by Source Naturals (I have found their products to be of good quality) - 1) Theanine Serene, which contains magnesium chelate, GABA, taurine, L-Theanine, Relora, and holy basil extract, and 2) Magtein which is magnesium L-threonate. He takes one of each every morning and has been tremor free for several months. Hope this information is helpful.

A grated potato chilled, then place on the top of eyes closed for 10-20 minutes, bleaches them lighter and nourishes them, rinse them off and add nightly coconut oil.

Makeup tip: Darker foundation on nose and cheek will make eye area appear lighter.

Borage Oil is Working Great for Seborrheic Dermatitis

Thu, 26 Feb 15 11:49:40 -0500
Posted by D (Az, US) on 02/26/2015

[YEA]  My son has battled Seborrheic Dermatitis for over 6 years. He has seen 5 doctors, and 3 dermatologists and we have tried every remedy on EC, and many prescriptions. It wasn't until I came across an article linking dermatitis and a lack of a certain enzyme produced in the body, and the ability of borage oil to stimulate production of the enzyme, that the light bulb went off. My son has been taking 2 capsules of Borage oil twice per day for only one week, but the results are the best I have ever seen. He may have to stay on it for the rest of his life. No more acne, exzema, seborrheic dermatitis, scalp infection, scalp dermatitis, all cleared up about 80% in about 10 days. He is very happy. If you have a really scaly, bad infection, you can apply it topically, also.

 Castor Oil Removed Xanthelasma Polyps

Thu, 26 Feb 15 11:47:44 -0500
Posted by Joanne Maree (Sydney, Australia) on 02/26/2015

[YEA]  I tried castor spread all over my eyelids for eight weeks diligently, I did not even try the lemon. Mine has gone completely. My GP diagnosed the xanthelasma 20 Dec 2014, I bought the oil a day later and there is no trace of it. It was right on my eye line, the lashes had stopped growing where it was bulging. My doctor referred me to a skin specialist to have it removed. I have save a fortune thanks to this blog. The oil cost me six dollars. Giddy up. I smothered my eyes every night, it didn't seem to irritate like you think it would. Thanks.

 Re: Is BHT Sufficient to Treat Hep-C, Genotype 2?

Thu, 26 Feb 15 11:46:47 -0500
Posted by Oscar (Syracuse, New York) on 02/26/2015

BHT seems to be an effective treatment for ALL types of hepatitis C for many but NOT ALL people. Also: Those who keep or kept this treatment simple are those that had the best results. You have to try the BHT treatment to find out if it works for you or not.

If it works for you: You should see a rapid improvement in: Liver function tests and viral load count tests.

The recommended dosage is 250mg to 500mg of BHT with water on an empty stomach. Start with the 250mg per day and work up to the 500mg per day dosage of BHT. Very large or heavy people may need more: the same as any other medication.

If adverse reactions are experienced lower the dosage used or end the BHT treatment....Oscar

Could Bad Burning From Yeast Infection be BV?

Wed, 25 Feb 15 23:49:59 -0500
Posted by Sarahk (Ontario, Canada) on 02/25/2015

I've had a yeast infection for two weeks now following a course of anti biotics for what I thought was BV. turns out it wasn't bv because a swab my doctor did came back negative. I have tried taking fluconazole three times and even got a longer prescription of it from my doctor. I seem to be resistant to any difflucan and Otc meds. I've tried monistat and canestan. They do not work. I have no itching just a strong burning sensation that sometimes hurts so bad I am in tears. Nothing's releives the burning. I have also completely cut out sugar and drink loads of water as well as take a probiotic supplement daily. I was at my wits end today and did not know what to do so I talk to someone at the pharmacy who knows homeopathic products. She told me that because of taking the antibiotics all my good bacteria is gone so I need to re enter it to my body. So I purchased a vaginally inserted probiotic. Ten capsules, one inserted at bedtime over the course of ten days.

My question is why am I feeling such a strong burning sensation? I see everywhere that yeast infections are itchy and I've had several before but never like this. I am also std free as my doctor swabbed for that too. I was getting the chunky white discharge but it seems to be gone after trying different things to get rid of the yeast. Now my discharge is just a sticky slimy white greyish colour, it's stretchy almost. I also have my period so that doesn't help. I just want to know if my yeast could possibly be now turned into a bacterial infection because of the burning. Has anyone else experienced really bad burning from a yeast infection? Or is that more likely to be BV?

 Re: Mother Formed in Pasteurized Apple Cider, Is It Safe?

Wed, 25 Feb 15 23:46:15 -0500
Posted by Jenn (Cobbora, Australia) on 02/25/2015

[WARNING!]  R: Floating Mother...

Personally I'd toss it! Or put it down an ants nest...

From buying ACV for years I know that the "mother" sits on the bottom as in a sediment, and will intergrate throughout the vinegar when shaken...

If it floats I would venture to say that it has been opened at some stage and I just would not use it. I have never heard of mold in ACV, because it is a product that literally keeps for years without refrigeration... plus even if you removed the mold, spores would still be in the vinegar thereby making it unsuitable for internal or external use.

Stay safe and buy a fresh bottle...from another supplier.

 Re: Pepper Juice Burning Toddler

Wed, 25 Feb 15 23:45:17 -0500
Posted by Mikell Rondo (Louisville, Kentucky) on 02/25/2015

I'm so happy to read your recommendation, Mama to Many! A bottle of nettle leaf tincture would be great for pepper emergencies.

My son is still picking peppers in the garden. He really likes to play there and the pepper-burning accident did not even make him stay away from the peppers. We also have okra, tomatoes, and beans in there but its the red peppers that he wants to pick.

I also had a bad experience with cooking fresh red peppers. I was trying to create chili oil for dumplings by frying sliced red peppers in coconut oil. The smoke from the frying peppers touched my hands, face, and eyes and I can't forget how painful it was! I tried to wash the residue with soap and water but the burning just went on for more than an hour. I don't how to ease the pain so I just endured it but I did not fry peppers since then.

 Artemisinin for Lung Cancer - Update

Wed, 25 Feb 15 23:39:23 -0500
Posted by Beverley (Victoria, Australia) on 02/25/2015

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  Hi, am still taking Artemisinin, and will continue for a while yet.

Have had some weird detox effects, the worst about a month ago, almost like a last gasp by the ailment (will not name it, gives it energy! )

I felt awful, no energy, moving from one chair to another was exhausting, but it is WAY better now, and can actually do more, but that detox -if that is what it was, lasted about a month. Artemisinin kills off a LOT of cells VERY quickly and the body has to remove the toxins, so I guess this is what the detox was. Also effected my bladder for a day over the last 3 months, one day per course (10 days on Art., 3 days off)

I also take Bicarb, have done almost from the start, 1 tsp in water first thing in morning and if what I read is correct about c---- not surviving in an alkaline system, then I must be pretty OK, as I have kept it around 8 for the suggested 10 days.

Am also taking Lugols Iodine, 7 drops along with Tumeric Extract and a lung tonic.

I also discovered a great Chinese medicine which does wonders for congestion. Ban Xia Hou Po Tang.

http://www.asia-link.com.au/index.php?dispatch=products.view&product_id=29898

This has been an interesting journey, one I never expected to take as I have always been so healthy (did smoke until I was 50) literally never got sick, haven't been to a doctor for 40 years ( until April last year)

I am on the mend now, but it has a lot to do with state of mind. Until recently I didn't care, now I do and it's showing. We MUST care and love ourselves first and foremost and I didn't over the last 3 years and really beat myself up.

I hope this helps. If you have a problem, what I am doing helps me. Not saying it is a cure all for everyone, but certainly has helped me. Am happy to keep you updated!

Ally and Jerry: I don't know whether this will help you, but I'll tell you what happened to me.

Years ago I got an injection in my hip. The area at the injection site developed a huge crater and it was there a very long time. My PCP couldn't advise me but ordered a biopsy that was "normal". I cannot recall how long it was there but I started to vigorously scrub over it with the towel after I showered. Once in awhile I would rub/massage the area with my fingers and eventually it filled in...I just assumed the stimulation helped regenerate the skin cells.

Since the areas are on your faces, I would suggest applying vitamin E (pierce the capsule) on the area after massaging and before you go to bed to help reduce scarring. Apply vitamin E before exposure to the sun. It would be best to use a small band aid to keep it covered. Taking vitamin E internally has also been reported to help reduce scarring.

I hope this works for you. :-) ~Kt~

 Re: Well Water

Posted by Lauren (California) on 02/25/2015

My reply to Mama of Many regarding your well water... it's easy to think it's safer than city water. But my brother in law's family were on a well, and two of their four children were diagnosed with diabetes, insulin dependent. It's very sad because now they have to be on diabetic meds for the rest of their lives. They traced the issue to pesticide run off from the farms around their property. So please get your water checked (if you haven't already).

And thank you for sharing your remedies for hypothyroid. I am hypo, and take iodine daily, plus all the vitamins I can afford.

Best wishes, Lauren

Multiple Remedies Not Helping Deep Wrinkles

Wed, 25 Feb 15 23:36:53 -0500
Posted by Wieas (London, UK) on 02/25/2015

I am in my mid 50s and need help with deep wrinkles around the side of my mouth. A couple extend down to my chin and the others extend just across to my cheek almost in a puckered up, raised, sort of way.

I have been using a Vitamin C serum with hyaluronic acid in it on my face for the last month or so. I use virgin coconut oil on top of the serum. I have used coconut oil on and off for about a year before the wrinkles appeared. Additionally, I also take 2 hyaluronic acid tablets and one biotin tablet daily. I can't see any positive results yet. Maybe I'm impatient and expecting a miracle too soon!

I used to be a 20 a day smoker but stopped that 2 years ago. I also used to drink alcohol but have not drunk for over 5 years now. For about a year I have been drinking about 12 cups of water a day.

My main concern is that these wrinkles might be hereditary. When my mother was alive her face was, for many years, leathery-looking and completely lined with deep wrinkles. She looked at least 20 years older than she actually was. She was a heavy smoker for over 50 years so that may well have been the reason. I think her skin started the wrinkling when she was in her 50s. I don't really know why her wrinkles were so bad because other people who were her age and smoked equally as heavily had nowhere near the amount of wrinkles she did. Also her brothers and sisters who smoked never had that amount of wrinkles. She did however have mental health issues which gave her irrational thoughts and she spent much of her life tormented with irrational thoughts running through her head. Whether these thoughts may have contributed to the wrinkles as well as her smoking habit I don't know.

Funnily enough, I don't really have any other bad wrinkles on my face. A few crow's feet (or laughter lines as I prefer to call them) and a couple of faint ones under my eyes but these are nothing really. It's just that every time I look in the mirror at the deep wrinkles I imagine my mother's face looking back at me!

Even though I have described my mouth wrinkles as deep and they are, they are also kind of bunched up and raised, if that makes any sense. Maybe it's because some of the wrinkles are close together and pushing the skin upwards?

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

 Re: Bleach and Water for Scabies

Wed, 25 Feb 15 23:35:01 -0500
Posted by Jenn (Cobbora, Australia) on 02/25/2015

[SIDE EFFECTS]  I'm trying to get my head around the fact that someone knowingly sprayed themselves with bleach, and not only themselves but their child as well.

Sure, bleach will kill mites and also you, if you inhale it and have an unknown allergy to it..

...we already live in a world where our bodies have to cope with many external contaminants such as pollution, and commercial shampoos etc that are mini labs of chemicals designed " to clean your hair" etc. The pores on our skin are there for a reason...

Try to buy a large ( possibly 2 litres that we can buy here from local supermarket) bottle of ACV. It doesn't even have to be organic . Failing that , brown or white vinegar, will do..dilute 1 cup of vinegar to 4 cups of warm water, which should be a 2 litre bottle..a plastic bottle would be more practical where you shower than a glass bottle and can safely be reused, without breaking.

Try it on a small patch of skin to see if it is comfortable after a few moments, and if so add an extra cup of water and prepare to use it, after you have had a hot shower initially, then gradually reduce the hot water until it is still warm but cooler have and washed yourself thoroughly, hair included..lightly towel dry yourself and then whilst your skin pores are open, pour the bottle of vinegar/water, over your head and shoulders and everywhere else (and don't forget to close your eyes) ..a 2 litre bottle of mixture is quite sufficient to do a large adult and another for a child. and leave to a-dry on your body.If infestation is heavy, it can be done 3-4 times a day and should be gone within 24 hours- 36 hours

If all this sounds like a lot of work, it isn't. Doing this every time you have a shower is also helpful for your skin because it gradually alkalines your skin and makes you less suseptable to hosting mites.. They don't like living on skin that isn't acidic.

Before I got sick I used to do this every day and it cured a skin complaint that I'd had for several years and nothing had been able to cure it. But ACV in this proportion did, in just 2 weeks and in over 7 years it has never returned.. but as for bleach? ... great for sterilising bandages and cloth nappies and dog kennels but not on living things..

For some added protection you may wish to buy some solution for scabies, if you don't want to do the ACV everyday.

Go to your chemist or pharmacy and buy 5% Permethrin Cream, and Google scabies lotion online and it will show you step by step how to make the lotion for home use, to keep in case this happens again.

Hope this will be of help to you..

 Re: Banana Peel for Corn

I have a corn on my left little toe, on top. Very painful that I can not wear enclosed shoes. I have been to the doctor. you won't believe this, my options are cut the toe open and file away calcium deposits or cut the toe off!! He never mentions the corn. This is from a doctor! The corn medications over the counter don't work. Heat irritates it so I put ice on it a few times a day. This helps some. I am an ice skater and need this to go away. I will try the banana and lemon.

You might try over the counter vaginal fungal creams on the piles, sometimes the rectal flora (candida )makes the pain worse. Take a pain reliever to get initial nerve pain under control to stop pain messages while the cream takes affect. The spincter muscle needs magnesium to function properly . Espon salt soak might help . Baking soda can quiet things down as a soak.
