04/02/2014: Mama To Many from Tennessee, Usa: "Dear Lauren,

I have used charcoal (internally and externally) for years. I also am hypothyroid, though currently symptom free. I just am careful not to take charcoal within two hours of supplements that I take for my thyroid, or any supplements. I have never had a problem with it.

I love charcoal...it is inexpensive, easily accessible, safe and effective.

Have a great day!

I stopped drinking milk and haven't been sick since. I feel a bit sickly lately as I ate cheese for 2 days, but the dr. said I can't have an allergy at my age, which is 32. I'm just wondering if all my illness is due to allergies. Thank you."

04/02/2014: Kilee from Ontario, Canada: "Hi All, I have been suffering through a very severe bout of shingles. It is over four months now and there is still tremendous pain and swelling on the right side of my abdomen, all the way around to my spine. I did not have the shots they recommend in the first 72 hours and I am a senior so it hit me really bad. The pain is unbelievable, the Dr.has me on Lyrica. I hate to take it, as it works by way of the brain and has some nasty side effects.The function of my kidneys has changed and it makes me dizzy, but it does help somewhat with the pain. I hate to take pharmaceuticals and refused to, for four months, but I couldn, t stand the pain and finally broke down and started the Lyrica. If anyone has suffered from this horror and found something natural that helps, or if anyone has suggestions, please post them for me. I use icy gel and cold compresses and some advil when I just can't stand the pain. I tried the Apple Cider Vinegar early on and it did not seem to help. Thanks to all the posters and the staff that make this site possible. Kind Regards to all."

Onion Juice for Hair Loss and Alopecia
Wed, 02 Apr 14 08:46:05 -0500

[YEA]  04/02/2014: Jane from Mass: "Onion juice will regrow hair. The Allicin in the onion juice stimulates follicle growth and draws blood supply up to the root. Blend one medium onion in a blender, you can add 2 tbs honey and tbs olive oil. Put into a squirt bottle. Massage onto your scalp before bed and wear shower cap, wash off in morning. There was a study in Journal of Dermatology, 80% of subjects showed hair growth within one week. You can use nightly until you get the amount of growth desired and then use once a month for maintenance."

Granny Smith Apple for Vomiting or Nausea

[YEA]  04/02/2014: Jane from Mass: "I'm Sicilian as is my friend who recommended this natural cure for vomiting/nausea. Both our great grandmothers were natural healers. If you are vomiting or Nauseous eat a green apple/Granny Smith. You must consume the peel, as the remedy is believed to be in the peel. I've used this and it worked within 20 minutes. I think it may be a lot easier to keep down than charcoal or onion juice, although I use onion juice for a lot of other things."

  Re: Oscar's BHT Treatment for Viral Hepatitis
Wed, 02 Apr 14 08:41:54 -0500

04/01/2014: Oscar from Syracuse, New York: "Dear Yureg from US, I wish to begin by thanking you for this informative posting. As a reminder, do NOT use vitamin B12 supplements with the BHT treatment. The metabolites of BHT can and will combine with B12 by way of peptide bonds. Vitamin B12 in effect acts as a BHT scavenger degrading the BHT treatment severely. Thank you for your informative posting Yureg. I only wish more people would use the updated treatment and post their results. These hepatitis infections are dangerous. The BHT treatment does work for most people if used properly. Keep it simple. The BHT treatment is BHT and NOTHING else. Also just keep taking the BHT as you have been even after NO VIRUS DETECTED is achieved. That means the treatment is working. It does NOT mean you are cured. That takes at least 2 years for most people if not more than 2 years. This is because even though no virus is detected in your blood, a very many liver cells are still infected with whatever viral hepatitis you are treating with BHT.

A true cure is when you test NEGATIVE repeatedly with the ANTIBODIES test. Very happy to hear this good news Yureg, ...Oscar"

I bought some lugol’s iodine from Australia, just wonder does the product has to be refridged after opening the bottle? Something I didnt do! But I will take lugol again. Niacin seems to be also a healer, I once took niacin, but broke out in hives, which scared me I will try it again. Will start with a smaller doses, don’t mind the flush, vit b-3

Again many many thank you all of you with sound advise.!!! I will let you know my progress after 2 weeks it should show some.

  Re: Pharmacy Drugs vs. Natural for HBP

04/02/2014: Timh from Ky, Usa: "Prioris: Thanks for your bold voice concerning the (sad) truth about our current social order.

If I might add, it seems much of the pharma drugs is an issue of "dose dependence". M.D.'s are coerced into prescribing drugs and the high dose pills are what profits big pharma most; so it seems many people are taking way too may mg and experience much bad side effects, and many die from all-sorts of errors associated w/ the powerful chems.

As for searching, I do not depend on one single engine. I rarely use Google and mostly use Yahoo. MSM/Bing and Ask are other choices.

Back to meds, I have found that the insert for prescription meds is the common info according to the majority. If you are not in the majority that was studied, you may very well experience major side effects not listed in the insert or PillBook. Case-in-point, the generic Lipitor that MD rammed me w/. Of course I was cautious and split the pill in half and took not every day. I did an internet search and found that in rare cases substantial neuropathy or pulmonary fibrosis could and have occurred. Well, here I am w/ both these conditions already so this mandates an entire new level of caution."

04/02/2014: Timh from Ky, Usa: "Tony: I have been waiting & wondering how your doing, so it's very good to hear you are much better and still improving.

As for me, I am, after three long yrs in the trench, seeing some big improvements. I have made major improvements w/ the parasites, & pathogens w/ a combo of remedies; now my two major concerns are bone infection in mostly my shoulders & arms/elbows, and heavy metals.

I guess I am like yourself in that there will be a need for rehab or reassessment back toward a normal life. I have spent most of the last 3 yrs in the bed and have been in need of some personal assistance.

As for particulars, in hard cases like yours or mine, I think the presence of Biofilms is a major implication. Bill is making much research progress on this problem; and as you might guess, modern medical practice is not on this. After watching a YouTube video on biofilms, the researcher spoke of bone infection as common in biofilms. Two noticeable remedies I have found effective are Nattokinase and Turpentine. With the removal of the films, the zapping, Colloidal Silver, and MMS are finally proving as powerful as they're taunted to be.

As for my Christian Faith, I can say that I have lost much of it, but continue on the right path as is necessary for spiritual survival. Over the last several yrs reading and watching NDE experience testimonials has very much helped fill the loss associated w/ disability. Socially I must live in a state of constant self-defense as I am so vulnerable. My bitterness has reduced as I no longer have any ambition in this world. Just try and remain positive and live in the moment."

  Re: MSM and Molybdenum
Wed, 02 Apr 14 02:14:25 -0500

04/02/2014: Timh from Ky, Usa: "Shelleyjr: I also had very high Calcium levels as per hair analysis. Bill from Philippines says it's probably due to leaky gut or malabsorption. I feel like I have made improvements in that category but will need to repeat test for sure.

Sunbathing for Vit-D should help absorb the calcium in the event that your gut isn't doing well. An herbal parasite cleanse might be of big value as parasites are very common in folks, particularly those w/ pets or livestock. Oil of Oregano will kill any pathogens in the gut.

As for the MolyB and excessive copper, it appears warranted to add at least 50mg Zinc daily as Zinc will combine w/ Copper to form Zinc/Copper Superoxide Dismutase, a major antioxidant enzyme in the body. Ionic Major & Minor Mineral supplement will help bring about a balance of minerals. Taurine will help mineral function. A complete B vitamin will combine w/ minerals to form coenzymes involved in many metabolic processes. Vit-E and Selenium will combine w/ the CoQ10 for a major antioxidant boost.

Pineapple, Turmeric, and Omega 3 fats are the major ant anti-inflammatory naturals. Magnet therapy is a powerful anti-inflammatory."

Since my previous post back close to 1 month ago, I have added DMSO, B17, and Colloidal Silver to my treatment regime. Using both the DMSO and CS topically and orally as well. I have lots more energy since adding these 3 products. Still doing the zapping sessions daily.

Just glad to finally be feeling better now. I have kept my faith and continue to trust in The Lord. Healing is taking place for sure! Just a slow process and I accept whatever Jesus has planned for me. Of course, I wished this would have taken place a long time ago but God is in control. I just thank him daily for the healing. Keeping an upbeat and positive attitude goes a long way.

It's been really hard though with all the pain and suffering that me and my family have been through. I'm just allowing Jesus to use me however he wants in this life. I here to be his servant and can't wait til he decides that time is fully here. Thanks again Tim and I hope and pray your getting better as well!"

  Re: High Blood Pressure Alternative Treatments
Tue, 01 Apr 14 21:42:24 -0500

04/01/2014: Bill from San Fernando, Philippines: "Hi Sigistardust...Coversyl contains a drug called perindopril whose main dangerous side-effect is to cause renal failure due to the combination of high drug acidity and high blood pressure which always tends to destroy the delicate filtration network in the kidneys. So you were very right to refuse this drug.

To help you with your BP problem:

* Take 500 mgs Niacin(Vitamin B3) twice a day at meals. To avoid the niacin flush effect, take an aspirin 20 mins before you take the niacin. Or you can take the slow release form of niacin -- inositol hexanicotinate, which will not give the flush. Do not use the niacinamide form of B3 as this has no beneficial effect on blood pressure. See this article by Abram Hoffer. See this article on how to take niacin.

* Also take a tablespoon of Brewer's Yeast once every day in a drink -- B Vitamins always work better when supplemented naturally as a group because all the B vits are dependent on each other and tend to work together in concert. Niacin particularly acts to change the blood. Blood which is too thick or which has too much clumping will be more viscous with increased BP and increased strain on the heart. Niacin safely thins the blood, lowering BP to normal levels thus removing the strain on the heart.

*Supplement a source of Iodine. I find Lugol's Iodine the best (I been taking 8 drops or 50 mgs 5% LI a day for the last 8 years). You can also use other iodine forms like Iodoral if you wish. Iodoral is simply Lugol's Iodine in a pill. I regard iodine as an essential mineral element that everyone lacks in their diets today and most people are low thyroid as a result. Iodine also helps to solublize fats and proteins(including cholesterol) in the blood for better utilization and removal by the liver. Coronary heart disease, high BP etc can be caused by blockages or build up of fat proteins (called lipoproteins) in the blood. So supplementing lugols iodine acts to normalize these lipoprotein to more healthier levels. See these guidelines on how to supplement lugol's iodine. Iodine also increases energy, kills a wide variety of pathogens, prevents menstrual problems by normalizing hormones, increases bone density, reduces cysts formation, removes mercury, lead, aluminium, cadmium, arsenic, fluorine and bromine from the body as well as being the main ammunition needed for the immune system to help fight pathogens in all the mucus sites of the body.

* Reduce all diary in the diet to reduce your calcium intake. Lipoproteins are normally bound to calcium which can cause constriction and blockages in the blood vessels. Take 250 mgs of Magnesium Citrate twice a day with meals to help regulate excess calcium in the blood which may be causing contributing to your problems.

* Take Vitamin C -- 1, 000 mgs three times a day.

* Nattokinase. This is a protease enzyme that digests fibrin or dead organic matter in the blood vessels that can cause blockages and high BP. I would first try all the nutrients shown above on their own for a while first. If that doesn't help then use the nattokinse (which is expensive).

And being a vegetarian I should also add Vitamin B12(not in Brewer's Yeast) and some form of extra sulfur to your diet -- -like MSM(Methyl-sulfonyl-methane), ALA (Alpha Lipoic Acid) or N-Acetyl-Cysteine. See this research on essential sulfur for the body for more ideas. Vegetarians generally always lack adequate sulfur nutrients in there diets. Sulfur can also be found in small amounts in foods like eggs, garlic and onions."

04/01/2014: Mike62 from Denver, CO: "Bee: High energy water makes everybody as happy as a hippie eating honey in heaven. Very active nutrients and enzymes make high energy water. A very convenient way to get high energy water is with activated barley. You can buy 2lbs at amazon for $36. Activated barley has at least 4 times the energy of any carb. Adding 5g to 1 cup water gives enough energy for an hour. Japanese agriculturists discovered barley has the most nutrients of any land plant. The gladiators ate barley sprout gruel. The hunza drink barley sprout tea with ghee and a herb that prevents plaque. You can add 1g barley grass juice powder. This has the same dna repair enzyme as raw pastured eggs and is very high in sulfur"

Candy Sugar - it's just sucrose (sugar) of that much I am sure. I'm guessing use 10-15 teaspoons of sugar would be fine.

Tulsi (Ocimum tenuiflorum) - I had to look it up, the common name for this is Holy Basil."

Re: MSM and Molybdenum

04/01/2014: Shelleyjr from Albuquerque, NM: "I started MSM 5 days ago for Osteoarthritis pain and have had terrible headaches and bloating/gas. I got molybdenum yesterday and while it cured the headache, I still have tummy issues. (Arthritis is already better! )

I am taking 4 Doctor's Best MSM 1000 mg/1 gm capsules split between am and late afternoon. I took 450 mcg of molybdenum this morning with 2 gms of MSM and did the same this afternoon. Again no headache but my stomach feels bloated/gassy.

Health History;

I had hair analysis done a while back and each time it showed very high amounts of calcium and copper. (I had a copper toxicity using a skin care product on my clients. I absorbed a lot of copper through the palm of my hands doing facials.) Since then I have been doing a lot of detox's over the years.


I take Iodoral iodine, K2 and D3, CoQ10, boron/borax, tart cherry capsules for the OA and gout, and topical magnesium.

Today I have taken 900 mcg of molybdenum and feel it is working somewhat but not to the extent that Dr. Ben Lynch says on his podcast. Which he states molybdenum will eliminate bloating/gas associated with MSM. Also, in Dr. Lynch's podcast he list all the symptoms of a molybdenum deficiency which I answered "yes" to all. Since I am not worried about depleting my copper levels should I take more? And has anyone taken molybdenum in high doses over 950 mcg?

Thank you for any insight on high dose molybdenum."

04/01/2014: Kt from Usa: "Hi Mmsg--I'm the one you wanted to keep posting "piecemeal" but haven't been on here much. I get discouraged when I know what I have learned but it is not always received well. I see so many remedies for "cures" instead of making attempts to just eliminate the cause.

ABOUT THE APPLES: When you pick up the apple the wax transfers to your fingers and as you peel, the knife transfers the wax along with your fingers to the apple. Then you ingest it. The same goes for oranges and grapefruits. You cannot wash the wax off. However, I saw a post on here, I think, that gave a ratio of vinegar and water that would remove the wax after soaking for a short time.

It's not worth the trouble for me to do that. One time I had gotten some good ol' Ivory Liquid that was reported to be digestible (original formula) and scrubbed the grapefruit skin but I just don't want to do that. I learned about the wax from Jack Samuels. I sometimes get apples and scrub them but I also cook them before I eat them. Eating the skin is still important.

Because our fruits and vegetables have been genetically modified in one way or another, raw is no longer safe. I get the canned water/juice packed apricots and peaches for my fruit. They have been blanched and are easier to digest. Sometimes if they seem too firm I cook them a little more. I don't think I can give the brand name of applesauce I purchase but it is the only one in a glass jar and has "Natural Plus" on the label. I get the concentrated "country style" orange juice because it has the pulp. I cook all vegetables until tender.

Mmsg, I hope I didn't unload too much on ya!"

After reading some tips here I increased it to around 6 ounces with apple juice. It was very unpleasant to the point that I'm going to vomit. Now after 15 minutes, the sharp stabbing pain that goes through my back subsides to almost gone but the burning sensation is still there which is much more tolerable.

I swelled up after one of my babies and the nurse said it was toxins and that I needed to drink a lot to flush it out. That seemed to work. (Oddly, I had an unmedicated birth, so I don't know what toxins she was referring to, unless she meant ones already in my system?)

[YEA]  04/01/2014: Kelly from Cambridge, Ma: "I have found that being more cognizant of my blood sugar has helped my blood pressure, when other natural methods didn't.

Blood sugar isn't something I've ever had to worry about, but during my endless research into natural alternatives to BP med's, I stumbled across some interesting information that prompted me to pay more attention to blood sugar when it comes to BP.

I see many here with BP issues write that they "eat well", no junk food, etc. However, there are foods that don't fall under the junk category that can wreak havoc with blood sugar and BP.

Whole wheat bread is a good example. Two slices of whole wheat bread (or whole wheat cereal) spike your blood sugar more than a Snickers bar. Who'da thunk it?! :)

Glycemic Index of whole wheat bread = 72. GI of a Snickers bar = 41!

After much trial and error with many natural methods to get my BP under control, what's worked best are the following:

-Keeping my blood sugar steady, (i.e. eating before I hit the "I'm starving! " mark and want to eat my own arm...haha :)

-100mg's of CoQ10 twice a day

-One capsule of Acetyl-L-Carnitine 800/Alpha Lipoic Acid 400 combo twice a day. I found the combo capsule for dirt-cheap via Spring Valley (Walmart's brand).

-Sipping potassium-rich water throughout the day. I alternate between coconut water, which is potassium-rich, and potassium broth, which is made from boiled potato peels.

-Before bed, I spray my legs and feet with magnesium chloride spray that I make myself from the quick-dissolve capsules and water.

If, as with me, other natural remedies have failed, give this one a try. So far, so good!"

04/01/2014: Prioris from Fl: "Not finding a natural remedy doesn't automatically assume that one should be taking a conventional medicine. I have spent years tracking down natural remedies for things without success. I still won't take toxic medication. Why take a treatment that has damaging affects on health. Sometime people are caught between a large rock and the ground and are forced to that route. The one thing that has helped me the most was being PERSISTENT. Every year new supplements and information comes on the market. The other factor is what results the Google search engine will give a person. Same search words will give two people different results. Google is run by the intelligence agency. They will tailor the results to the individual hence compartmentalize people. Finding the correct search terms is also difficult. It takes persistent searching month after month.

Conventional medicine is designed to kill or debilitate your health. Most cancer treatment should never be done even if there are no alternatives because it will kill you quicker. It is also designed to also strip people and a country of it's assets. It is also designed to keep people who are chronically ill sick. The key is to stay away from the deadly and useless things.

Maybe a pharma medication helps with symptoms so one decides to take it. The key here is to never quit searching for a natural alternative and use natural remedies to ward off damaging side effects of the medication in the meantime."

I started taking BHT along with chanca piedra and the supplements on November 23,2013 but my efgr was going down so I did stop the vitamins and then just vitamin D and B6 for every 2-3 weeks. Then gout flared up on January 2014 started taking opiates then viral load skyrocketed. I also stop taking the B-12. I started taking tart cherry extract along with my BP meds. I think it was the combo of 500 mg of chanca piedra at night and 250 mg of BHT every 2:00 or 3:00 am that did drop down the viral load. My liver enzyme was still elevated but it was decreasing.

Bleach for Nail Fungus
Tue, 01 Apr 14 08:40:52 -0500

[YEA]  04/01/2014: Ron from Manila: "I had some toe fungus in my two big toe nails for about ten years. I tried many cures but with minimal results. The fungus was very deep under the nail. then by accident I found a cure that killed the fungus fast.

Here is how it happed. I always wear flip flops and with one black pair that I wear my feet get real dirty black and it is hard to remove. One night I decided to try socking my feet in a solution of bleach and water to get rid of the black color on my feet. it didn't work that well in getting rid of the black, but the next week I noticed there was a lot of space under my big toe nails as if the fungus had died. I soaked my feet again and the fungus seemed dead and easy to remove. a month later there was lots of space under the nails indicating that most of the fungus was gone. I socked my feet again and at least once a month for the next four mounts as a precaution to make sure the fungus was gone for good. the fungus is gone now.

here is what I used:

bleach, sodium hypochlorite, known here in the Philippines as zonrox.

I used one half cup of bleach in half gallon of water. I soaked my feet for about 45 min. I did it twice the first week then once a month after that till there was no trace of fungus

It was so fast and easy compared to all the other home remedies that I tried. and best of all it worked."

Someone on this site had posted that her son in law brought his HBP under control by drinking Eggplant water, and it was tried by me and I confirm that it does work.

Now how to do it, peel the eggplant skin off and then make small pieces and put it in a glass jar fill it with water cover it with the lid and put the jar in the fridge, after 48 hrs you can start drinking this water at least twice a day say 200 ml each time. Each time you drink this water, you can put same amount of fresh water in the jar and finish it in three days. After that you can make the fresh batch. The capacity of the jug should be around one to one and a half liter. I suggest you try this and see if it helps, I am sure if it does not help then it is not going to harm you either.

Good luck.

  Bill's Remedies for Left Upper Hip Pain (Muscle/Nerve problem)
Tue, 01 Apr 14 07:59:17 -0500

04/01/2014: Bill from San Fernando, Philippines: "Hi Dave...Dr William Kelly was very successful against cancer and Nick Gonzales has been just as succesful. I read somewhere that in Nick's Metabolic Protocol for cancer, his patients take between 150 to 170 pills a day, as well as diet, enemas etc. In Max Gerson's cancer protocol, his cure appeared to be almost solely based on defending the liver at all costs -- by getting all the poisons and toxins out of the body as fast as possible using both the coffee enemas and castor oil laxatives at the same time (thus avoiding re-absorption and redistribution of both cancer toxins and heavy metals via the colon). For each cancer patient (all of them usually with Stage 4 cancer where the doctors had already given up hope), Gerson gave them 4 enemas a day and 4 enemas during the sleeping hours. That's 8 enemas every 24 hours!! Interestingly, Max Gerson originally started curing people of TB in 1928 with this protocol. Then, so the story goes, someone aproached him desperate to try his therapy for someone in the familly with cancer in the 1930s and his protocol worked -- and the rest is history.

Gerson's strategy of always protecting the liver is therefore pretty logical. Walter Last has written about pleomorphic microbes and describes his own belief that, especially in chronic autoimmune diseases, we have a sludge build-up in our blood(as we get older) that cannot be cleared -- so it never goes away but just keeps building up. It is here that this sludge -- which contains bits of proteins, DNA and RNA -- can suddenly develop on their own to become viruses. Depending on the state of the body at the time, these new dangerous pathogens will simply adapt and change into viruses, bacteria or fungus as their living medium(the host body) demands and end up causing or contributing to our vast array of idiopathic and autoimmune diseases that we have today. See Walter Last's detailed article here.

So this is where protease enzymes and other useful and helpful liver protocols(such as the coffee enema, ALA, Milk Thistle, Selenium, MSM etc) will help to clear these toxins, heavy metals, proteins and sludge from the blood.

Doctors are completely unable to cure autoimmune diseases because they think like this: One Disease -- One Germ -- One Cure. How wrong or dumb can they be ? Their strategy and treatment for any chronic auto-immune disease is always palliative -- just treat the symptoms. So its a fail for them in my book.

That's why treatments like CS or MMS or Hydrogen Peroxide are so useful -- they kill a wide range of pathogens in the blood.

Of all the high, respected professions in this world, I find it most peculiar that being a doctor is NOT a performance related profession (in terms of lives saved or improved). If modern medicine were indeed performance related then I'm pretty sure that there would be alot of doctors and specialists who would be jobless out on the street mumbling, "...But I was following the Standard of Care Manual...Honest!! ...And they still died!! ". I guess doctoring is no longer a free-thinking, common sense profession anymore. And, of course, DO NO HARM doesn't enter into any part of the equation now where another drug sale is involved.

Sorry, ranting a bit..."

If you're unable to use milk products then a pro-biotic is a more expensive way to go. also check DHA, and a omega 3. Hope this helps"

03/31/2014: Dave from Fountain Inn, Sc: "Hello Tyler,

Re the brain fog and other symptoms;

You ask if the mono could have had anything to do with the condition...Absolutely yes.

Quite coincidentally I just posted to a "David" about his condition and yours is even more clearly associated...that is a very serious infection and then follow up problems.

The "hand tremors" symptom is ominous and demonstrates that likely the infection is thoroughly established in the nervous system.

IF this were me... I'd make sure the doctors were alerted to this possibility and see if they have any meds that could be used to treat nervous system infection. My belief is they will likely not have a solution although there are many anti-virals available.

If me, and the regular MDs did not have a solution, then I'd consider using large doses of high PPM Colloidal Silver. If the condition has in fact gone into the nervous system then I know, given the symptoms and the prior mono, that I might be facing "viral meningitis." Ask your doctors about that possibility. Again, if they have no solution then if this were me, I'd use a protocol that has the capacity of moving an anti-viral into the nervous system.

There is a technique to doing this; quite simple, and I don't mean to overwhelm you but I know with the symptoms you are exhibiting the situation is most serious. If you wish to further discuss, if you will contact Earth Clinic we can converse via Email."

Re your heart palpations...

When did the problem begin?...You mention a number of problems that might be associated...dizzy, nervous, sleepy and tired.

I'm always suspecting a virus lurking around causing all kinds of problems. And David, especially, I look for a TIME prior to the onset of the symptoms when one might have fought off a really bad infection like mono or strep etc.

Just checking...think back to the onset; did you have a bad infection prior to symptoms...think back six months to a year or so...a really bad infection like I named above. If so, then we need to discuss how to get rid of the probable causative agent...an infection of some kind. Now just because you can't recall one doesn't necessarily mean that no infection is involved but so often I discover a "smoking gun" in the form of a bad infection. Post again if you suspect a possible lingering infection, and I'd describe what I do to knock out such infections.
