 Re: Seeking Supplement Advice for Neck Issues

Hi Frances again.

That product I mentioned claims to contain (& I broadly quote here)"A type of un-denatured Type 11 Collagen to work on the immune system, to help preserve joints and support the regeneration and maintenance of healthy cartilage, Boron to help healthy bones and Vitamin D to support optimal cartilage production". If that bold claim proves to be true we have a winner on our hands! I know there are similar products "out there" and it can be confusing to sort through and expensive to "trial and error" many of them. We move from a situation where we basically had no help to one where there is too much (apparent) choice! Ha! Even so, I am pretty excited about this one at the moment. Keep in touch/watch this space! I reckon improvement could be noticed as early as three weeks if the stuff suits your particular condition and body type! Wouldn't that be pleasant! Then, you could commence those gentle, neck exercises. Good luck.

When I was growing up on Alderney, Channel Islands in the early 1960s, we had a terrible out- break of "Foot and Mouth Disease"! We had thought that being on a small island would insulate us from what was going on in France or England at that time. However, it was thought that a bird (or birds) must have flown across the sea (from France, only nine miles away) bringing this disease with them on their feet. Anyway, all the small farms were devastated by this scourge, except for one farmer, and for a while no one could point to the reason why his farm should have been spared! Apparently he always hung a bunch of garlic and onions around his farm house and out-buildings and he maintained that this was the reason why his cattle did not catch the disease. Everyone had to step through strong disinfectant when alighting from plane or ship. All the Island's cattle carcasses had to be thrown into deep pits filled with lime and buried/burned. You might appreciate the angst and trauma all this caused to a small island economy, shortly after the German Occupation, when farmers were just beginning to resurrect the Alderney breed of cow. It is now extinct I believe.

Once a year the farmers on Alderney were required to meet at an appointed hour, before low tide, in a central square with their horses and carts to begin the process of collecting "vrack" or seaweed. It was considered to be such an important fertilizer, that if even one farmer could not make it to the square, they would all have to cancel and meet on another day. This was in the days before imported, chemical fertilizers (and mobile 'phones! ). They were fortunate to have huge quantities of seaweed thrown up by the fierce, Atlantic storms on to their beaches. It would have given great health benefits to the cattle as well as to the soil with the full range of minerals in perfect balance. The vrack would have also improved the structure / tilth of the soil too.

Cheers, Michael

Epsom Salts Stopped Grand Mal Seizures

Someone in my family developed grand mal seizures just over a year ago at the age of 52. He had 4 big seizures within a 6 month period, lost part of his memory & he refused to take any form of meds. I read here on EC about Epsom salt and I immediately bought food grade Epsom salt. He takes half teaspoon in the morning & same in the evening with pure orange juice. We also had to cut out on food additives & went on natural food.

It's now 8 months of seizure free & we thank God & EC for this forum. It will take a while for the body to rid the toxins so don't give up. Epsom salt is natural and has no side effects.

I hope this post will help someone & save lives.

J: Just guessing, but I have a similar situation w/ my kitty minus the redox potion. Mine is a case of indoor/outdoor kitty that prowls around the bushes and gets those little green stick-balls on his long fur, lays around and pulls them off with his mouth and can't help but swallow them rather than spit them out. This may not be your case but the symptoms you listed are similar to my kitty and I think is those little green stick-balls terpenes that cause such intestinal irritation. On the good side, there's probably no greater natural parasite remedy for wild animals which are often plagued by parasites.

I see everyone says the Apple Cider Vinegar gets rid of the warts, but my question the person still contagious even after the warts are gone? I read that one is still contagious. Do you all have sex after the warts are gone and do you not spread it? Or are we cursed for the rest of our lives and never having to have sex again even if the warts are gone? I'm confused here.

I know you will think I'm totally nuts, but this thing drove me nuts. A few weeks ago my adult daughter said she saw "this white thing" on my upper left eyelash line. I must admit when there is something to pick, that's what I do, I'm sorry, but it's the truth. I used a times 10 magnifying mirror and sure enough it looked like a hard white pimple. I did scratch it out. No problems until the next day, there were several tinier ones nearby and I just went for them. 2 days later the right eye. As of today, none are seen, yes the eyelid is red and a bit tender but no more white hard bumps. When I got to them though they weren't easy to get out. They sort of had a bit of whitish "line" coming out. OK so I'm crazy, but I did get them all out, no surgeries. I did try the warm compresses though, didn't do a thing.

I was glad to see your post as I thought I was crazy. Yes to the weak coffee. That's so interesting! Espresso is not helpful, but drip with lots of fluid is very helpful and I always have an improved stick test. I believe it speeds the delivery of the UTI-herbal-stuff that I put it in, It seems to alleviate the pain and give me a boost over the fatigue.

I too have blisters where the garlic was placed. Trying to heal the blisters before I proceed with any other treatments. (No known abscess just nerve type pain that made me think I may have a cavity at site of deep filling 3 months ago.)

I have a very sore burning tongue and loss of taste. I have used CAV for years but recently stopped it and started Vitamin B Complex Perhaps I will start taking it again with Bicarb and hopefully this will solve my problems

Last year I had open heart surgery and recently had my Gall Bladder removed. My mouth problem started before my recent operation, but now they have found that my Bile Duct and my Pancreatic ducts are dilated. these are being investigated. I have already had an Ultra sound scan, no results as yet. As far as I have never had glucose intolerance.

Antifungal Supplements for Candida Causing Extreme Fatigue

I have systemic candida which I have been treating by eliminating sugar though I had continued to eat grains and beans. I have recently stopped the grains and beans and started taking anti fungals: oil of oregano, olive leaf oil and Undecylenic Acid. I am continuing with the no grain no sugar diet but stopped all anti fungals temporarily due to feeling severe die off symptoms. Now I am just experiencing extreme fatigue though depression feelings have subsided. I am wondering if I can start the anti fungals again or one at a time or should I wait until I am no longer so fatigued?

Thank you for your input,

Hello Ted! Thank you find yourself near people with health problems. My son is 9 years suffering with OCD, is now 25 years, has used different medications but not recovered. I read your writings ( that explain about the lack of minerals and thought maybe is true for my son ...... One day the boy had eaten fried mullet fish hard (had eaten the entire needles) and then a miracle happens his brain was very clear and he cheerfully said: "I recovered I'm not sick that my brain is clean". We do not know what happened, what mineral healed him, but it lasted only one day. My son continues with medications and they have given more effects anesore. Do be very grateful if you send feedback to, perhaps guy gonna antidepressant but no need for minerals. Thank you.

Gather round! Once there was a Maori Chief, Harehare who recited this tale of the warriors who were fighting with the Government deep in the New Zealand bush (forest) in 1871.They became very hungry when their rations ran out and, as was frequently the case with the old time Maori when food got scarce, were forced into resorting to digging and eating Fern Root when the bacon and biscuits (in this case) ran out. This fern root "aruhe" or "roi" was very starchy when pounded and was not particularly palatable and the gritty bits from the soil could grind down your teeth after too much of it but at least it could sustain life! But on a hungry, cold winter's night, deep in the mountainous bush, his frustrations overcame him and he burst forth in a memorable composition, which the Arawa Tribe made into a lively, Haka, action song.

"The leader came dancing towards his commanding officer holding out a piece of bark on which he placed a "komeke" or cake of roasted fernroot and this is the song he chanted, with his men joining in in a great chorus to appropriate action. I translate from Harehare's Song:- "Captain, captain, here is your food, A plate of fernroot! See what the Government gives us in its great, loving kindness! The Pakeha soldiers eat mutton and beef, they drink Government rum, They are safe in their redoubts. We roam the forests and climb the mountains; We measure the country with our feet; We chase Te Kooti, we chase Kereopa; We are the fighters! We are weary and hungry, And what do we get to eat? Fernroot ---fernroot! We live on Hinau berries like the birds, We live on fernroot like the pigs; We root like pigs, we pound the fernroot. We are hungry for Government meat, The food of the warrior; We dig with our bayonets For fernroot---fernroot! "

Do Magnet Therapy. Place a very strong Magnet over the area for 15 min 2x daily. Also place warm washcloth saturated in Epsom Salt 15 min 2x daily. Take Help Oil/CBD orally.
