I will write too long. I had a head injury in 1966 and a 7 day comma, when I woke -- right off I tremored and said to myself, "the girls will never be interested in me now". I lost from 174 lbs down to 109 lbs. Numerous doctors told me I would not live to see age 30...or much less. Over the years I did much research, being I was smart enough yet, even if I tremored badly, to the extent I could not write my name, play the guitar, do art, hold a book in my hands to read it etc. I used many naturals and some with benefits, usually for a short term. I was for a while addicted to tranquilizers, to the extent now I truly am opposed to them for myself. The tremors gradually got worse over the decades, yet I never got angry at or resented the problems. I got this honorably, in a small teams parachute jump in VN, doing what I felt true to liberty assistance....I was fortunate to have an excuse for quirkiness. Thanks for this site! I have been reading and have been taking the theanine serene with relora 2 per day and one magtein, now for about 8 days. I can carry a dinner plate and can touch two fingers of each hand to each other. How long will this last...I have no idea. But over the years I have done hospital stints, done scans, seen numerous neurologists, taken k's of dollars of naturals, took medical drugs I soon quit with side effects, exercise everyday, had years of giving up all caffeine, food coloring, salt, sugar, suggested bad foods, avoided chemicals, withdrew from social gatherings, still losing the abilities of most things I enjoyed. So far I have good results with this and many thanks. Others should do their own research and discussions with their health care opinions are useless in a professional way.

Ginger is an antibiotic and functions as an antidiarrheal. You could make a tea, 1/4 tsp. to 1/2 C water two or three times a day.

Garlic is another natural antibiotic. Mince a clove four times a day and swallow the pieces whole once you have something in your stomach. Four garlic cloves a day is also reported to kill tapeworms, the hardest parasite to get rid of.

  Re: Taking Protein With Magnesium Helps Prevent Diarrhea

I have a Nutrition Almanac that says minerals become attached to amino acids before absorption takes place. Amino acids are found along the intestinal wall and act as receptors for the minerals. If complete protein is not consumed they pass through the intestinal tract without having a chance to attach.

I'm in my late 60's and don't have a problem with magnesium causing me diarrhea as long as I get complete protein which is reported essential to consume with each meal.

I have heard all of the stories about how in WWII, as well as the Vietnam war the soldiers would get IM shots of "Vitamin B12." During medical school, while doing a research paper (I specialize in addiction medicine) I found out that they were really getting IM shots of low-dose LSD mixed with high doses of DXM (Dextromethorphan) or Robitussin DM, as well as Methadone (a long-acting opiate medication, effects are extremely similar to Morphine, just takes longer to reach plasma levels, but stays in system for 30-upwards of 60-75 hours, depending on if it is taken acutely or chronically. I am only 28, but I remember personally driving my grandmother to the doctor every 2 weeks to get a shot of Vitamin B12, she said there was no side effects. As well as we are taught in Medical School, and I went to an Ivy League, for both of my doctorates, one is in homeopathic treatments, and was taught that B12 has no effects whatsoever, when given in Placebo **Controlled Studies.

So my conclusion is, yeah, maybe for some people it can cause a reaction with certain body chemicals or fatty acids, that could possibly cause your body to release small amounts of norepinephrine, (basically adrenaline). But, with that conclusion would come so very good questions. If that is the case, and B12 does cause a release of norepinephrine, which would be the only case for the "side effects" being reported, then there would also be the side effects of chemical in question. There is no doubt in the medical community that norepinephinre is what B12 inhibits, but, that leaves, again, many questions. If your body is releasing, basically pure adrenaline, then you would have increased levels of anxiety/insomnia, hypertension, agitation, and so on. So in conclusion, IF this vitamin is producing some kind of stimulant or energetic effect, then we as a medical society need to study this vitamin A LOT MORE, because the logic behind the results, just doesn't make any sense whatsoever. And by the way, only about - of people report these side effects, but in my opinion, that is enough to initiate more clinical trials, as well as more possible indications. Thanks for your time in reading this. I know I can be wordy, I write lots of charts. Best of Luck to you All, and Send some My way as well!!!

Infection in Chest After Hospital Visit

Sat, 15 Oct 16 20:30:11 -0700
Posted by Stupid John (Trang, Thailand) on 10/15/2016

On the 7th of September plus well before, there was nothing wrong with me. I had a slight uneasy feeling in my stomach, near my ribs. Reminded me of what the ectopic heartbeat does and went to the Trang R…....t hospital only to ask. At the time I was very healthy. Was there for 5 minutes, Dr. P said come back in a week. Next day I had a very bad sinus and chest infection. Fought it for a couple of days then went to the local doctor who gave me the most dangerous drug ever, ciprofloxacin which contains fluoroquinolone that causes permanent damage. It scrambled my thinking and I returned it to the doctor. He took them back and gave me another, no name but marked with T.MAN, 800-160. Began them and was feeling worse.

Went to the Trang W…………t hospital, early evening. The most nastiest place on the planet. They would not admit me (illegal) unless I agreed to the ICU at 30,000 Baht/A$1000. This was before they knew what the problem was - the reason? I was a foreigner. No need for ICU with an infection. Because of my brain fog I agreed. Big mistake. They began drugs for blood pressure, diabetes which I did not have and a host of other useless, not needed drugs.

I got out in the morning after they asked me to stay another day with pages and pages of irrelevant info. I was now coughing and sneezing so violently it tore the tummy muscle that runs from the pelvis to the ribs, from my ribs and heaps of pain. One of the effects of ciprofloxacin, Peripheral Neuropathy. Looked up all the drugs so far, on the internet and hardly used any. The free gifts from the Trang W…………t hospital, Urinary Tract Infection and Herpes. The UTI can enter via dirty food, with E. Coli, but Herpes I don't know how.

Oddly, 'side effects' of the various drugs I had taken are, fluid retention which I didn't need with UTI and constipation. Forward planning? 'major effects' not side. A day or two later, no improvement so went to the G………..t T….g hospital. Just a repeat of W…………t with heaps of drugs including another dangerous one, Acyclovir antibiotic with heaps of bad 'forward planning side effects'

Again I looked them all up on the internet, took Acyclovir for 2 days and stopped the whole lot. Checked my, what before was sticky green mucus and no green. Infection gone but 'major effects' all remained. Super tired, not hungry, brain fog, rash on back of both hands, wobbly walking, and the scratchiness in my throat, just below the thyroid much worse when I swallow or doing nothing. Their 5 bottles of cough mixture irritated more.

At home, taking none of their - intent to do harm drugs - UTI with intense pain, gone with the help of 2 Alka-Seltzer tabs before bed plus cornhusk tea and cranberry juice. I will ease up on the AS, reducing by half a tab each night. I was also taking Infloran, a German probiotic which one doctor told me won't work, as if antibiotics have for the past 50 years, plus eating yogurt every day. The intense itchy throat with its violent coughing and sneezing, which I never had before entering the T…..g R……t hospital, is still there. They will still get a bit more money because there is another hospital in Hatyai, the Prince of Songkhla University hospital where there may be real humans. It's a teaching hospital and I will ask them to please look down my esophagus and trachea and try to find what stops some food and drink. No! Nobody home there. The one 'specialist' doc. I wanted to see was in his clinic. Went there. He knew nothing but wanted to sell drugs anyway. I didn't buy.

There is something wrong about the whole medical business. Does contract law still apply on this planet? If so, isn't the label on the drugs a written contract between the manufacture and the buyer - us. If contract law applies, it says both entities must supply full disclosure, failure to do so is a criminal offence. Is all this law business just BS to keep the slaves away? Anyone know?

My daily defense from the Pig Pharmaceutical: Glutathione, Magnesium Chloride 750mg + topical, CoQ10 600mg x 2 day, Selenium needs 400mcg, (I have just 140mcg) Garlic, Turmeric, Zinc Gluconate 50mg, Yogurt, Parsley tea good for liver.

Feeling better but some brain fog still there and heaps tired but working it all. There is no help from hospitals or anywhere, except your self and EC. John

Adding Baking Soda to ACV Tonic Makes it Easy to Take!

Posted by Mjacobs (Savannah, Ga) on 10/14/2016

I added 1 tsp baking soda to my 8 oz glass of water with 2 Tsp of Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar, all in an effort to increase the alkalinity in my body. What I can report tonight is that the strong vinegar aroma that can make me gag was nearly eliminated after the fizzing stopped. It was actually a pleasant drink! I wonder, though, did the baking soda eliminate some of the ACV benefits.

Hi Alice.

I really cannot provide you with the information you requested about stopping oxygen at night, or about your ulcer. All I can say is that starting the program will be the best thing for you, perhaps you can do both methods, ie; drinking and inhalation method, I do both every day now with wonderful results, and amaze myself with what I am able to achieve, it just gets better and better with time. Alice I do wish you all the best on your journey to good health. Geoffrey

Glad to hear that all is going well for you with the Hydrogen peroxide. I see where you mentioned you take it most days. Just a suggestion - try and take the H2O2 every day, you will get better results faster. All the best to you.

Coconut Oil For Toenail Fungus

I have had toenail fungus for 28-30 years. I have tried so many things to get rid of the fungus. Using tee tree oil 2-3 times a day for many months I could see it affected the fungus, it got dry hard and still more yellow but still stuck to the nailbed. Apple cider vinegar and baking soda, chlorine. Soaking my feet for 30 min every night in vinegar and salt or vinegar and baking soda. Too times I have taken terbinafine for many months at a time. This fungus medication is bad for you and each time the fungus was back in 2-3 months. Name it I think I have tried it all.

I had not heard anything about coconut oil regarding toenail fungus but I had heard about that it had some effect on fungus and I had used coconut oil in my scalp for some years because of dandruff and that seemed to be the only thing that worked.

I thought I had discovered something totally new with the coconut oil ;) that people did not know about. Why had nobody told me about this?

I started my treatment by cutting my nails as short as I could, all parts that were loose, then I took a new toothbrush (soft and dense type), brushed coconut oil over the nail and nailbed, every morning and evening. I think it was only about a week that I could see differense; the thick part under my nail was diminishing. Now its 5-6 months since I started with the coconut oil and my nails are without fungus plus they are smooth!

Not sure how old you are, but I can tell you my experience. I took it in my early 40s for peri-menopause. I really didnt notice any difference so I stopped. Now that I am in my early 50's I started taking it again after getting my very regular period every 18days. The maca brought it right back to 25days or so within a month. It has eliminated most of my mood swings before my period, a huge plus. It really does kill several birds with one stone since its an adaptogen. I usually take it 3 weeks on and 1 week off but got lazy and just took it all the time and started getting sore breasts. Read that upping magnesium helps with that too. Since I was getting lazy taking 6-8 mag pills (100mg each) I got back on that horse too and the sore breasts went away with in day. I think I read that on EC.

I also think you have to take the "cooked" maca vs the raw. Dr. Mercola has also recommends maca for "the change".

Oil Pulling for Psoriasis

I have had psoriasis for over 5 years now. I did a lot of reading, including this site, so I started out removing nightshades, and eating low fat. Sort of helped. I tried taking ACV everyday, but it somehow doesn't do well with my stomach. (Leaky gut problems) I also realized I have problems with Candida, and I have changed my diet to help fight that as well as take supplements. I increased my intake of Vit. D, along with eating more alkaline. I also started adding Tumeric with pepperine. All of these things helped, but never completely took it away until I started oil pulling. Huge difference!

While fighting with the psoriasis, it moved around from my shins to my arms and more recently it's just been on my right hand. I couldn't get rid of the one patch, until I started oil pulling. I knew cleansing was a part of the problem, but this has been really great! I have been using organic coconut oil. I don't like the sesame as much because of the taste, but I might switch it around for change.

How I do the oil pulling is use about 1 T first thing in the morning before I drink or eat anything, and swish it around in my mouth while I get up and get started for the day. One thing I found is important is not to swallow while swishing. I find I want to clear my throat, but I let the crud mix in with the oil. Then I spit it out in the toilet, and rinse my mouth out and spit it out as well. I OP for about 15 - 20 mins.

Castor Oil Cured Tracheal Stenosis!

My husband had tracheal stenosis after having a tracheotomy in the ICU for 6 weeks after colon cancer surgery complications, which means the build up of scar tissue in his airway. His tracheal stenosis got so bad that he had to have outpatient surgery 7 times. Like clockwork, 6 weeks after each surgery the scar tissue would inevitably return to such a point that my husband couldn't breathe, and he'd be back into another surgery. At one point he went into respiratory distress his airway was so closed. After the last surgery the doctor suggested we give him a permanent tracheotomy.

My husband is very active with hiking and other exercise, was in his early 40's at this point, and our child was 2, so this was absolutely out of the question. I looked up scar tissue remedies on Earth Clinic and found that applying Castor Oil to external scars had helped some people.

So my husband began rubbing a thick layer of cold pressed Castor Oil on his neck where his tracheotomy had been, and where the tracheal stenosis has been recurring. He did this in the morning and at night, tucking a washcloth into his shirt to keep the greasy oil off of his clothes. Miraculously, within 24 hours David's breathing started easing as if the scar tissue were disappearing. And within a couple of days his airway seemed completely open again. Since he started doing this, my husband has not had another surgery for tracheal stenosis. This is an incredible cure that works! My husband is an especially tough customer because his neck had been radiated during his teenage years due to Hodgkin's Lymphoma so he also had scar tissue from that.

David continued his twice/day castor oil treatment for a couple of years. The scar tissue/tracheal stenosis never returned. I wish we had tried this before suffering through 7 surgeries, but better late than never! And better than a permanent tracheotomy! I hope this will help some other people recover easily from their tracheotomies. It is an incredibly easy cure.

Read your thread and found a few similarities in our case. My 5 year old nephew has recently been admitted to a Children's hospital after blood and protein was found in his urine. Multiple test done with negative results including diabetes, lupus, and Minimal Change Disease. Shortly after, his blood pressure began to elevate and we heard complaints about his potassium levels being high. After finally getting both his BP and potassium levels down, he has been released but with heart medications. We have no ties in the medical community but Google landed me here and I have read every thing concerning kidneys. I am not sure what to do and welcome any and all advise. I look forward to your reply, as it could literally save his life. He is only 5 years old, please help us!!
