Dear Beth,

Activated charcoal may also help in addition to Tim's excellent suggestions.

I have given it to my children for diarrhea of many different causes. Mine will just chew up a tablet, or you can mix 1/4 teaspoon of the powder in some juice. It will make the stool black.

I also give a charcoal tablet to little ones any time they have possibly taken something in that is of concern. All households with children should have activated charcoal on hand in case of accidental poisoning. You can find lists of what poisons will be adsorbed by charcoal at:

None of these things worked for me. Not even the castor oil on the eyelids. Nada, zip, zilch.

Dear Cme,

Just a couple of thoughts to add to the great suggestions you have been given...

Often a magnesium supplement is helpful with sleeping, taken before bedtime.

A friend of mine who had poor sleep and an excellent diet found that increasing her salt intake helped her sleep better. Adding some Celtic Sea salt may be helpful.

I hope you will quickly figure out what is needed to help you sleep!

 Re: Painful Ganglion Cyst in Palm of Hand

Lynn/ Ganglion cyst...

I had one on my foot and went to a foot specialist, MD, who explained the above to me. He said lancing was only temporary.

But that explanation led me to try and find what was "out" in my foot. To my amazement, between the big toe and second toe (not the joint) I discovered a terrifically tender spot...about an inch and a half UP the toes. Repeated massage and especially pressure point deep into the sensitive area resulted in a felt movement of the toes. The very next day after two years of pain and irritation, the cyst was down in size by 50 percent. Over a few months of daily gentle pressure point and easy pulling of the toes apart the cyst is completely gone. I work that foot/toes now twice a week just to make sure the structure is back in pace.

That was my experience with such a cyst. If I had one on my hand, I'd do the same thing. The hand structure was damaged in your fall resulting in a shift in the structure and hence the draining.

Hydrogen Peroxide Inhalation for COPD

Mon, 26 Jan 15 16:11:23 -0500
Posted by Meh (Ok) on 01/26/2015

I think one of the most frustrating things about Earth Clinic is the confusion it generates for many. It's hard to find a protocol that someone uses that is clear, concise and well-written. What would it take to simply outline your own routine--with the products used, the amount you take and how often. How hard is that?

So, I have asthma that is bordering on COPD. I came here to learn more about hydrogen peroxide inhalation, and of course, I had to wade through hundreds of confusing posts to get to the main idea and come up with a plan.

So, to help others, here is what I learned and what I am now doing:

I don't have a nebulizer handy and didn't want to wait to order one. So, I went out to the drugstore and bought a store brand nasal inhaler. I also bought plain over-the-counter hydrogen peroxide. The man who started this protocol used plain hydrogen peroxide for 20 years to no ill effect, and if it's good enough for him, then certainly it is good enough for me.

I came home and cleaned out the nasal spray bottle and put it in boiling water for a minute to cleanse and sterilize it. Then I filled it up with the hydrogen peroxide. Then I inhaled and sprayed a few squirts toward the back of my throat. I squirted two or three times.

I did not dilute the hydrogen peroxide with distilled water. I did exactly what the man who started this all did. Don't worry about food grade peroxide and nebulizers and all the other stuff if you don't choose to. In fact, to start this protocol to see if you want to continue, just start out with these basic supplies and try it that way. If you want to graduate to the food grade H202 and a fancy delivery system, you can always add these things after an initial trial period.

Spraying it into your throat and inhaling may take some practice, but after a few times you'll figure out the best system.

I was having a huge asthma exacerbation and this immediately lessened it. I was amazed.

I also bought a netti pot. I cleaned out my sinuses, got rid of the offending allergens and immediately felt better.

I plan to do the netti pot three times a day and the inhalation protocol three times a day as well. I am starting with short short blasts of the inhalation protocol three times a day.

I will report back again.

All of these products are easily bought at a local pharmacy at very little expense.

I hope this helps people who come here and are reading through pages of comments with very few directives, lists or protocols mentioned.

You can always put a disclaimed at the bottom of your post that says, "I claim no responsibility for the health of others, blah, blah, blah."

Good luck everyone. I am so excited that after one session with both of my new regimens that I am already feeling some relief. And completely drug free, too. Zyrtec is expensive and really hasn't helped me much for a while.

For the blood letting cure - can this be done several years after a patient suffered a stroke? Will it still help in any way or is it too late? I wish I knew about this sooner - my Dad has had 2 strokes (hemorrhagic, 1 in 1997and 1 in 2006)...please advise.

Tim, have you gone online to to have any personal labs drawn? I have used them before and go to local Labcorps to have my blood drawn. They handled the paperwork. I used them to have my magnesium RBC's checked. It was a very easy process. My results came to my email. Maybe this will help.

Cme, let's look at your insomnia from a different approach for a minute. Let's look at the external factors which sometimes are missed.

Give all of these a try at the same time.....

1. Your bedroom must be pitch black when you go to sleep. No LED lights, no ambient outdoor lights seeping into your room. The bedroom should be pitch black. No clocks, computers, etc.....LED lights stimulate your pineal gland which is sensitive to light.

2. Keep your room cool

3. Mattress should be high quality

4. Use a travel pillow around your neck if your spine is not in alignment

5. Do not eat two hours prior to going to sleep

6. No TV, Computer or electronic device 1 hour prior to sleeping. Perhaps maybe a good old book.

7. Sheets and blankets - high thread count, soft

8. Adequate hydration

9. Dab castor oil on your eyelids prior to sleeping. (This really does work)

10. Reduce your stress levels.

11. Keep your noise levels to a minimum.

Note: A friend of mine who had difficulty sleeping and heeded the above advice along with any homeopathic remedies.....she sleeps soundly. She seems to think that making her room completely dark was the trick for her. Dr. Andrew Weil stated that a dark, dark room without small ambient lights is essential to good quality sleep. Give this a try, and I wish you all the best.

You might want to try GABA and seriphos. They block night time cortisol and adrenaline which keeps many people awake at night. It was the only thing that worked really well for me after years of insomnia and adrenal issues.

B: This would certainly be an infection of fungal or bacterial type. To remedy, purchase one or any number of these herbs ---Garlic, Oregano, Olive Leaf, Neem, Grapefruitseed in liquid form from health-food store and add to food or drink for your child. Amounts used are labeled on the container so start w/ the minimum and slowly increase until the issue is resolved.

St: Nice to hear your success! If I may suggest some additions.

First, as for the fiber; it would surely be an improvement expanding your fiber to more types as psyllium is good yet restricted in results. I mix a combination of Psylium-Pectin-Wheat or Oat fiber for full spectrum effect. The pectin will remove any possible radioactive isotopes which can reek major havoc in even very small amounts from sources like dairy foods, iodine deficiency, and radon found in homes particularly basements and cellars. Wheat & Oak fiber have the remarkable ability to manufacture Butyric Acid which is a major fuel source for the cells of the colon.

Second, as for the inflammation, many folks have reported good results for UC by taking Turmeric. Turmeric is particularly powerful anti-inflammatory but also is one of the most broad-spectrum beneficial herbs on the planet.

Third, to increase the efficiency of probiotics, it is advised to predose w/ antibiotics herbs like Garlic, Oregano, Olive Leaf, Neem, Grapeseed. After killing gut pathogens w/ these herbs, this frees up the probiotics to "populate" the gut.

Speaking of gut flora, do be sure to get enough Vit-K rich foods like green foods like Spirullina, Chlorella, Wheat & Barely Grass. Many people are starting their day w/ "green smoothies". These vitamin K rich foods help the body manufacture probiotics naturally. FOS is also used as a pre-probiotic w/ good results.

Bill: Unfortunately I don't know my homocysteine or glutathione levels as I have no medical support in my area. Maybe I can have a long-distance Dr (online) order an "Elisa" test at local lab?? Any suggestions? I think I can purchase these test alone, if I can muster enough $.

Anyway, in response to your heads-up on homocysteine, I have B-6 & P5P in the mail as my heart & cardio system have been thru hell in the last 4 yrs; fortunately I have avoided catastrophic event. I do take 500mg Methionine daily for fatty liver w/ 1000 mcg B-12/500mcg Folic Acid, and 125mg DMG.

I may need to reiterate the major problem of pulmonary fibrosis (in comparison to your gene theory), which is known to cause Glutathione deficiency and autoimmunity. Recent LDN is proof of correcting, in part, this immune dysfunction. I have no problems of insufficient volume or shortness of breath, but do have problems w/ gaseous exchange, detox, and acidosis. Dr. Shallenberger measures lung function to access energy production in the body. I am currently getting good results (much better now since taking LDN) in energy production by taking Raw Lung Glandular in conjunction w/ Chinese herbal combination for lung health. So it seems an immune-detox-energy crisis which I suffer, but w/ major treatment intervention am still here to talk about it.

About 1 yr ago I nebulized some Reduced Glutathione, along w/ other nutrients for lungs, and for a brief few hrs experienced a remarkable relief of bad symptoms and felt like my old self again prior to my injuries. Am looking forward to trying this remedy again and isolating exactly any specific or combination nutrients. Also, I have sufficient circumstantial evidence of mycoplasma pneumonia, so this infection must be playing a major role in preventing any healing in the lungs and further agonizes the fibrosis instead. Despite recent immune improvements w/ LDN the mycoplasma and bone/joint infection continues although not as severe; but am now resolved to take at least one 6 drop dose MMS daily so as to get an upper hand and eventually (w/ the help of Ozonated Colloidal Silver) totally kill these pathogens.

The heavy metal elimination seems to be going well as the severity is slowly reduced. Hopefully in a few months I will have made substantial progress in this area.

I have tried everything, too. What is working lately is 1000mg glycine + 1500mg L-Tryptophan before bed. Much improvement. Ted says to do 1/2 teaspoon baking soda in water 3 times/day--says most insomniacs are too acid. I started to take baking soda like this at the same time I started the glycine and tryptophan. Don't get discouraged--you have to try until you find something that works. Read all Ted's posts, you will find an answer.

Can Oil Pulling Raise Cholesterol?

Mon, 26 Jan 15 13:20:57 -0500
Posted by Gayle (York, Pa) on 01/26/2015

I've been oil pulling for about 6 months now, and during my last bi-annual doctor's visit, I was told that according to my lab work, my cholesterol was higher than usual. I really believe in this oil pulling, but I'm now wondering if it's raising my cholesterol. I've been using the extra virgin olive oil lately, but sometimes switch to sweet almond and 2 or 3 others. Does anyone know if cholesterol is negatively affected?

 Re: Trying Castor Oil For Pterygium

Posted by Ms.v (Virginia, US) on 01/26/2015

I was diagnosed having Pterygium in both eyes in 1997, after prior years, eye specialists finally detected the condition. Surgery on my left eye failed, leaving the eye butchered and they say the eye (L) is, "Gone! " Pterygium is not my friend and I will never trust another surgeon to remove the blobs, because it only reoccurs! I will try the vinegar/H2O, but I trust only God to remove the blobs out of my eyes.

I pray all the best for complete healing.

Diagnosed With Blood Clots in Both Lungs

Mon, 26 Jan 15 10:57:55 -0500
Posted by Toni (Australia) on 01/26/2015

Hello Ted

I was diagnosed with multiple blood clots on both lungs...they have put me on xalerato blood thinners, that was in 5 December 2014. I am still experiencing shortness of breath and chest pains. They think it might be contributed to from my Lupus since I had it from 1994. All was okay, but I have experienced since 2011 extreme stress, more so than necessary...I did lose my husband in 2000 but everything has been okay, so I don't know why, if its due to stress or something else. I want to feel pain free again.....

Thank you Toni from Oz
