 Re: Anxiety, Panic Attacks and Stomach Bloating All Occur At Same Time

Posted by Mimi (Georgia) on 10/08/2015

Hello. A bit of daily outdoor fresh air and sunlight helped me. Also (sorry) more diet advice. Plenty of probiotics for gut flora. Yogurt, kefir, pickles, kimchi, etc. and a good omega 3 source. I truly believe in the mind/gut connection. Keep your system flowing and be gentle with yourself concerning the panic attacks. I used a mantra of sorts: "This feeling is (tight) and (restricting) and (heavy)" fill in the blanks with how you'd feel. Then I closed my eyes and breathed deeply while imaginig imagining how it looked. Then I'd say, "But, I can handle it" and carry on feeling so much stronger. By the grace of GOD I no longer have them and feel so much healthier. Best wishes.

I have Hashimotos and take iodine tincture everyday. It caused a flare up when I first started but as soon as I added companion nutrients it completely stopped.

ORH, as a detail of your great suggestion: exercise needs no gym, nor expensive gear. Anything around the house can be a exercise helper: bags of sugar are weights for beginners, a wall or later a table and later a floor, are great for wall/table/floor push ups, a strong bed can be gently trampolined upon, etc. You get the idea.

Hi Connie - Thank you for the update. I am new to Earth Clinic and am glad I found this site. It's encouraging to see that some natural remedies have helped people find relief from TN pain.

I was diagnosed with TN in 2000. I was prescribed Tegretrol and have been taking it since then. I read somewhere on Google years ago about B12 injections but didn't have enough information it. So I chose not to try it. I did try the sub-lingual B12 which didn't seem to help, but I probably didn't take enough.

I have so many questions that I hope someone will be able to address.

  • How long did you take it before you started relief from pain?
  • Do you recommend a certain brand?
  • How many mcg should I start out with?
  • Does anyone know of a Naturopathic doctor in the Phoenix, Glendale Arizona area?
  • Has anyone heard of tried Rosemary Tea and Ashwagandha Oil to help relieve TN pain?

I have suffered with this horrible disease for 15 years, but I continue to have hope and pray that the Lord will lead me to my pathway of healing. I pray for everyone who has been diagnosed TN that you would discover your pathway of healing too.

Hi Linda,

What are the side effects you found out about barley? Would you share it with us?

In regards to vegetarian or non-vegetarian, (a post done in 1-2015), I have to have protein, and lots of it, or I experience heart rhythm problems. I'm not talking about eating red meat 3 times a week, I'm speaking of eating 2 eggs every morning, and chicken or fish (salmon or similar) for my meats. I have red meat (ground range fed beef- no hormones added) in something at least once a week. But, I'm not getting a lot of that unless I cook it into hamburger patties. I've tried doing less protein, and it just doesn't keep my sugar level even. I drink Almond (no sugar added) milk- when I feel I want milk. I don't do a lot of sugar foods. They do a whammy on me too. But I am trying the Organic Unsulphured Molasses by Plantation. I'll try 1 T in morning, and I T late in evening. And report back. I'm hoping it helps my 59 year old body in more than several ways.

One more thing about being a vegan. My SIL [Sister in Law] ate hardly no meat at all and got cancer of the uterus a couple years ago. They caught it in time, but scared her really bad. Since then, she's gone completely Vegan, and looks like a skinny pole- and hollow cheeks. And likes to tell everyone else they are too "fat." I notice her hair is still very thin, and complexion is not well. She says she feels fine, but then she said always says that. It's a pride thing with her.... She's 58. Perhaps eating hormone free meat (that's always what I buy) is not so bad. Either that, or lots of beans!! And they bloat me.... Of course, don't forget the power vegees to go along with the meat!

Ya'll keep posting!!! It's so much help to read everyone's experiences.

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  I agree the hydrogen peroxide helps. It relieves the itch for a while. But if I don't do it for a few days it seems to be worse than ever.

Hi Suseeq - Not sure if you still come to this site but I am curious to know how your husband is doing since the surgery. I've read that most people have the surgery (MVP..I think that's what it's called.) and it only made it worse and in addition resulted in loss of hearing, eyesight or numbness. If your husband didn't have this procedure done, would you mind telling me what it was? Thank you

Hi Elias,

I too have had this reaction to most eye creams and even the moisturizing water sprays (forgot to cover my eyes when I sprayed). Did you use a gentle cleanser to remove the eye cream? You might need to do that a few times.

It may take a few days to recover. Just don't put anything on it to aggravate it!

Sounds to me like you might be severely deficient in iodine. Check into daily supplementation of lugol's or potassium iodide.

Have you had your thyroid checked?

  Re: Milk and Bone Spurs

Posted by Sharon (Tennessee) on 10/08/2015

Are you drinking milk? I used to get bone spurs in a couple places on my fingers. They went away after I quit drinking milk. Almond milk can replace the milk you drink. The problem with milk is that the calcium in it has been heated- and many times can not assimilate into the body correctly- thus it attaches itself to joints, and sometimes even kidney stones.

Try it. Hope it helps. There are many types of almond milk to pick from. The unsweetened vanilla is better tasting, but I can drink any of them.

Yes, that's a completely normal symptom to have. Basically your body is beginning to flush out all the toxins and waste you are carrying and this commonly happens through diarrhea. It shouldn't last more than a day or 2. I know it's incomfortable and unpleasant but it's not dangerous and you will just get better with time. Hang in there!

Be careful with any salt you take. My SIL swore by the pink Himalayan salt. I bought a bag, and put it in my salt shakers. Just used that for cooking, etc... Immediately, my heart rhythm started messing up. It made the adrenalin surge through my body. I found myself getting on the treadmill two-three times a day, trying to work it off, and then at night, it would still flare up. It took me 3-4 days to figure out "what am I doing different???" It dawned on me about the Himalayan salt, I stopped using that, and immediately, I was back to normal. I gave my bag to my SIL since it actually helps her. There is something in it that she needed, but worked against me. I'm having problems now again- just at night mostly, but it's due to stress or anxiety about us making a move, or lack of something in my diet. But there was a 4-6 week period of relief after quitting the Himalayan salt. I don't salt my food a lot. I have noticed that if I eat anything salty early in the day- like for breakfast, it will induce heart skips. I've lived with a sensitive heart to adrenalin for 30 plus years. Still don't have it all figured out

Right now I'm trying the CALM plus Calcium (it has magnesium in it and couple other things), and a supplement of Mag/Cal/zinc. Also trying the Apple cider vinegar, twice a day in a little apple cider, and 1 TBL, twice a day of black strap molasses. I'm also on a beta blocker- twice a day (Sectral)- been taking that for 25 years- and every time I try to get off of it, the heart starts racing- so it really does help.

Also take very mild doses of Clonzepam when especially needed. Must be careful not to take that too often though- or it becomes ineffective and habit forming. Although, my doctor said it's good to take it for a week or so when going through a bad stressful time.

Can Anything Help 39 Years of Dandruff, Scalp Infections and Hair Loss?

Can someone help me. I am 50 year old, extremely active and healthy woman. For last 39 years I have had dandruff and scabs on my scalp. I have tried everything. From expensive, medicated shampoos to Apple cider vinegar. FenuGreek oil and powder, yogurt. I have now got 1/8 of my original hair. My diet is excellent. The doctors tell me to live with it. I cannot imagine that this is the end of my curls.

Can Elderberry Extract Cure Herpes 1, 2, and Zoster (Shingles)?

Thu, 08 Oct 15 10:08:54 -0500
Posted by Precisely. (New Mexico) on 10/06/2015

Given "Elderberry Extract's (Sambucus Nigra)" action which blocks viruses of all kinds from entering the cell wall (this prevents the virus from reproducing), so the virus rapidly dies off... I'm wondering if anyone has used Elderberry Extract for Herpes?

I've used it for flu, colds, and preventing hanta virus. Read about it in "Nature's Virus Killers" by David Williams (unsure if he is the author), and then verified with the US Center for Disease Control.

What do you think?

Dear Elias,

For some immediate relief, moisten two chamomile tea bags and place them over your closed eye, especially over the irritated area. I use cool water for this. Hold in place at least 5 minutes. Repeat every couple of hours.

Try castor oil or extra virgin coconut oil on the irritated area between chamomile soaks.

I've had ITP since 2004, and mixed connective tissue disease. Recently my itp has flared up. I've tried everything and nothing seems to be working so they want to remove my spleen. So they're trying to bring up my platelets with NPlate. I've been on the Nplate for almost 2 months but recently I have been feeling very sick, I'm so tired and feel dizzy all the time, can't function anymore. I just don't know what to do. Please help me.
