Magnesium Lowering High Blood Pressure

Mon, 15 Dec 14 09:51:11 -0500

Posted by Nancy (Dallas, Texas) on 12/15/2014

[YEA]  I have recently found myself with high blood pressure. In experimenting twice now, magnesium has done a bang up job in lowering my blood pressure.

One hour ago, it was 158/96. I immediately drank water with one heaping tsp of Calm magnesium powder. Now, it's 135/83. That's a huge decrease!

I have order Magnesium Glycinate, because if I keep using Calm (which is Magnesium Citrate), it will soften my stools too much.

 Re: Cayenne Use While on BP Meds

I just discovered the same thing--cayenne pepper made my BP go up....from 148/90 this morning to 161/97 just now at 9 pm!! Yikes. That's the highest it's been all week.

I did 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper in hot water with honey three times today. I was so hopeful...only to be dashed.

What did bring my BP down was using magnesium last week. I was going down to the mid-120's and the mid-to-high 80's on magnesium. That was at least progress. I stopped because of what it was doing to my bowels--making them pretty soft. But I'm restarting.

Timh: I appreciate your comment, but why are so many others doing so well when they clearly aren't combining cayenne pepper with Hawthorn Berry, Ginger Root, Ginko Biloba Leaf, and Clove of Garlic?? Also, where do you get that information on those other herbs?

Why Castor oil only six days a week? Is it harmful to take every day? What does six day of one or two weeks mean?

Lower Your Cholesterol with Dietary Changes

Sun, 14 Dec 14 21:34:35 -0500

Posted by Joru (Northeast, US) on 12/14/2014

What no one tells you is that high cholesterol can be associated with certain types of yeast. --among other possible causes.
Diet Changes:

- cut out all vegetable oils (including olive), minimize animal fats, use only low-fat dairy w/ no hormones or antibiotics/grass-fed, no fried foods. If fat is needed for cooking, use a small amount of butter (w/o hormones).

- buy all food fresh at farmer's markets & avoid packaged foods in stores; do more cooking at home.

- cut out white potatoes.

- eat more dark leafy greens, garlic, cruciferous vegetables; sweet potato, lentils, buckwheat, etc.

- include some fermented veggies (sauerkraut, hoarseradish, etc) in your diet which naturally contain "good bacteria".

- don't take vitamin pills unless you have to for a clear & convincing medical reason;

- minimize use of non-essential medications, as much as you safely can (consult your doc before making any changes).

- eat more fresh herbs and spices.

- eliminate alcohol; if you want to have something occasionally choose dry red wine or beer.

- eliminate coffee (raises cortisol).

- walk.

Naturally Healing Perioral Dermatitis: My Experience

Sun, 14 Dec 14 21:32:37 -0500

Posted by Penelope (New York, US) on 12/14/2014

[YEA]  Not sure where to begin, I hope this helps someone out there. mostly because weeks of researching forums have helped me.

To begin, stress and sugar both caused my Perioral Dermatitis. My period was about a week late as always, which is a personal thing I guess, but I noticed that as I have to wait and wait and wait for it, my hormones get more and more and more out of wack til it finally comes. I was on a plane, almost back from europe when I noticed my face itching on one side. When I got home a few hours later, my stress kept mounting. It showed on my face immediately.

Did not know what the deal was.. it started around my mouth and crept up my cheeks to my eyes and my forehead in HOURS. immediately googled it and learned it was PD, but failed to take it seriously. Ran hot water on my chin cuz I couldn't take hot water on my cheeks and eyes. Days later my cheeks and eyes mostly cleared up because I never touched them, but my chin looked like a thousand flaky angry bee stings and it definitely felt like it.

i realized I had to do something basic while I figured stuff out. I put tea tree on it all the time. I used so much vitamin E oil. I made myself smile everytime my face itched so I could concentrate on releasing endorphins. everybody knows smiles heal. once I was less stressed about it I was able to read all the info I could, objectively.

Simple: first of all never ever ever ever touch your face except to dab diluted apple cider vinegar on it. Skin is a reflection of internal problems.. cut out anything that has sugar in it, cut out carbs. ingest zinc and diluted apple cider vinegar. all the recommended topical treatments seemed to just make my rash look really angry. after dabbing with vinegar, DONT use oil, use GLYCERIN. oil preserves things, dont preserve bacteria on your face. and always remember dont touch your face no matter what. I noticed enormous immediate changes day after day. two weeks after having pd, it was showing promise of resolving. two weeks for me sounds alot better than these dragged out 8month-2year horror stories I found everywhere.

regardless what you end up doing, IF YOU TOUCH YOUR FACE it takes longer to go away. I hope you guys find what works for you.


diluted Apple Cider Vinegar in a glass 2x daily. dab face with diluted Apple Cider Vinegar 2x daily. after cleaning with acv, use glycerin on affected spots. drink so much water you cant stand it.

Hi Sam. I think you are referring to cellulite. Cellulite and cellulitis are very different conditions.

Posted by Jacque10 (Georgia, US) on 12/14/2014

I have had 2 battles with Basal Cell. Hydrogen peroxcide 35% mixed with DMSO works. I follow that up with baking soda paste, and then rub area with lemons followed by coconut oil to preserve area.

First time I used diluted hydrogen peroxcide 35% followed by baking soda paste, lemons and coconut oil. Had success both times.

 Re: Heating Lead for Warts

Sun, 14 Dec 14 21:24:54 -0500

Posted by Robert Henry (Ten Mil , Tn.) on 12/14/2014

HI U JOSHUA, , , , , , , , , let me tell you a wild and strange story about warts. When I was a freshman at Ga Tech and home working. I was a co-op and went to school 3 months and then worked in a mill for 3 months. Now kids just borrow the money from the Gov and never pay it back. I'll write about that later.

Anyways, my little sister's hands were covered with warts. My Dad came in one day and started sharpening a hard leaded pencil and began heating the lead with a lighter. I asked, "what are you doing". I'm going to remove Betty's warts. Pedro Bays at the mill said heat the lead and stick it in the warts and they will die. "Dad, you are going to give her blood poison. Don't do this."

He did and the warts fell off within a week. So much for a smart ass kid from Ga Tech and modern medicine.

So Joshua , yo tall story will not hold a candle to mine. I figure yours is true and I know mine is.


 Re: Aloe Vera and Cranberry Juice for Bv

Sun, 14 Dec 14 21:22:18 -0500

Posted by Jhlife (Atlanta, Ga) on 12/14/2014

I just wanted to add in regard to BV, I had it a couple of years ago and it was recurrent no matter what my Dr. gave me. Finally, I ask a friend of mines who is well versed with natural cures what I should do and she simply said, "2tbsp of natural aloe vera to 8oz of unsweetened cranberry juice. Not only does it get rid of the BV, I have also found that it works well with balder infections. Pray this helps someone as it did me.

Be careful with hydrogen peroxide if you do it make sure someone professional who knows the procedure. It can alter your liver enzymes. I have done that once. You can do ozone therapy, vitamin c, oxygen therapy, electricity etc

Beth, you can also try Blackstrap Molasses and Sage tea.

Why ACV pills? You can just buy the ACV and take it in multiple ways as described right here on EC.

Turmeric Cured Chronic Hidradenitis Suppurativa

Sun, 14 Dec 14 21:13:41 -0500

Posted by Truffles (Houston, Tx) on 12/14/2014

[YEA]  Where do I begin? I have had Hidradenitis Suppurativa FOR THE LAST 3 years ... It had devastated my life Until I found the magical medicine right in my cabinet which was overlooked for years .. Never too late .. I read posts here and started drinking turmeric water 2 times a day... Results: IT WORKS.. I just wished I had used it earlier on.. I have stage 1.. I tried everything under the sun.. Diet, topical application and birth control pill etc.. It does work temporarily but if you discontinue and if you are not religious about it returns .. What I did for my HS is I just took 3/4-1Tbsp of turmeric and added t to 5-7 oz of warm water and just drank it (gulp it, better that way) for 2 times a day. I continue to do so. I couldn't believe the inflammation is gone, literally flattened, and as others have said here it acts fast and all am left with is scars which I plan to clear out through bio oil and coconut oil ? I have never felt this confident in years . Try it out today. I used organic home grown and home ground turmeric? good luck,

 Re: Curing Multiple Ailments with Jock Itch Spray Containing BHT

Sun, 14 Dec 14 21:10:23 -0500

Posted by Oscar (Syracuse, New York) on 12/14/2014

Dear Anon from St.Charles, MO: What is GH ? Genital Herpes ? If it is then taking BHT internally and externally should help a LOT. Many people have cured this infection with a daily dose of 250mg to 500mg of BHT taken as a capsule internally. Also, BHT dissolved in isopropanol has been shown to be effective as a topical treatment ONLY. Isopronanol is toxic taken internally. You WILL get VERY sick if you drink isopropanol.

NOW DMSO is a very powerful solvent. Has been shown to penetrate even finger and toenails. This can be dangerous. Why not use BHT as prescribed in a relatively safe way and see if it works or not ? There is a VERY good chance it will work.

I have never used DMSO and therefore have NO opinion about it....Oscar

Hep b got over it 41 yrs ago with Horehound drops and round candy cane drops.. there was not a lot of hard candies to choose from. I sucked it slowly maybe 6 a day and continued to do so for 3 months and beyond. Sorry I cannot be more specific.

Posted by Anon (St. Charles, Mo) on 12/14/2014

Hi Oscar,

I am planning to take BHT for GH. But I am thinking of applying a mixture of BHT and DMSO topically at the tail bone area and where the lesions usually break out. As it is well known that the GH virus hides in lower spine area and DMSO is such an excellent carrier, what do you think of this strategy? Do you think it is dangerous to do it this way?

Should I also take it internally in addition to the above mentioned strategy?

I was considering doing a multi-pronged attack (Olive Leaf Extract, Lecithin, L-Lysine, H2O2 + DMSO) at the same time as I am determined to get rid of this virus from my system. But I read you mentioned that BHT does not work well when combined with other treatments. So I am now considering doing BHT alone strictly but I want to see if attacking it at the place where it hides with the help of DMSO might be a good strategy. I'd very much appreciate it if you could please reply with your thoughts on this?

And thanks for all that you have done in helping a lot of sufferers by bringing to light the benefits of BHT.
