 Re: Afib Caused by Colonoscopy?

It has been a piecemeal learning endeavor for over two decades that I have become aware of this. I have had four colonoscopies and my heart disturbance was reported while I was under anesthesia. The liquid magnesium citrate had been given prior to the procedures, when this had been reported.

Years later, I can't remember the time frame but I had heard that magnesium citrate was more readily absorbed so I stopped taking my regular magnesium and got the magnesium citrate. I started to have frightening palpitations and "flutters". I was scheduled for a stress test after reporting this to my PCP. It wasn't until I was resting after the test that the rapid flutters began again, right there in the same room. I was then diagnosed with PVC (premature ventricular contraction). I went back on the plain magnesium and they stopped.

Now, I may have a little "rumble" once in awhile. When I look back at what I've eaten, it's always been something in the food or the way it has been cooked. I hope this information will help you. The colonoscopy itself, I don't think would have caused your afib. This is just my opinion and what I have gone through.

on further examination, I think it was the fact that it helped some because it was potassium gluconate which is an ionic form.

I'm doing the Diatomaceous Earth=DE and coconut oil. Heard of the other ways mentioned in here. Definitely not going to sit while a worm comes climbing out of my mouth or butt ....DE will kill them before you expel them or so I was told. Also have done the purging with 1/2 cup olive oil and 1/2 cup lemon juice ....gla maybe not here but did read where people have trouble finding DE its been around forever used it back 40 years ago on the farm animals and also in the garden ...But remember there are 2 kinds the animals food kinds (humans too) and the stuff for swimming pools which is dangerous. I bought this 40 lbs bag for around $12 at tractor supply ... probably can find it on the internet too but not expensive at all.

Hi everyone, Is the cinnamon and then the apples/carrots necessary? What about just the beet juice alone? I am currently drinking half a cup of organic juiced beets every morning, and feel no effects whatsoever. I was actually sort of hoping to feel sick so I would know something was happening...lol. Are the cinnamon and the apples afterwards part of the cleanse itself or are they just to keep you from being sick? And wouldn't full strength beet juice be better than diluted with fennel or asparagus, or are they part of the cleanse? Thanks for any help.

Hi Oscar, No, I'm not Art from BC......I'm Art in California.

From what I have read, fecal transplants can be effective when other methods such as prebiotics, probiotics, resistant starch and fermented foods are not. I have not read anything to date that has said that they are dangerous when used correctly and their use seems to be much more common than just three years ago. The number of case studies employing them is also increasing considerably.

I don't currently need one myself, but if I had a health condition that was not improving or was worsening using other methods, I would certainly consider it for myself . Art

THE GUT ENZYMES are what makes us fat or thin, and then we feed them with what we eat, they affect our hunger hormone. This article is long, but educational.

I eat charcoal capsules at bedtime and my gut is improving . I also eat coconut oil daily and kefir .

I have been suffering from sinuses infections for years now. Antibiotics no longer work for me. Hellllp!!! My nose isn't even stuffy, but the post nasal drip (I assume that's what it is) is causing me to have a constant feeling of something being in my throat. I can clear it, but it comes back within seconds. It actually makes me feel anxious. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. There are so many natural remedies, I don't know where to begin. Thanks.

Zapper (Terminator 2) and Herpes Zoster

Wed, 25 Mar 15 21:56:21 -0500
Posted by Prioris (Fl, US) on 03/25/2015

Through trial and error in trying to find the cause of my migraines I discovered I had occipital neuralgia. From there, I found the
root cause was herpes zoster virus.

The point of this post is that your underlying cause could be chronic infection. The herpes zoster is well known for causing nerve pain.

I have had low level chronic shingles my entire life but they don't break out in skin eruptions but just a little tingling on the skin. I ignored it most of my life since I had a zillion other things I needed to address. I did take a homeopathic formula for shingle 15 years ago that helped a lot with tingling but never touched the migraine.

I have had ME/CFIDS essentially my entire life. I am 60 years old. The virus has been getting more aggressive in me as I age. The heart of ME/CFIDS is that at it's root it's an encephalopathy disease which causes a lot of secondary diseases.

I know people are in desperation for some remedies to neuralgia so decided to post this as soon as possible versus more evaluation. It may help some people.

I found most of the Herpes Zoster remedies mention in the shingles file did help me some degree but did not really address the underlying condition. Curiously, many things that help people here are the same.

Here is the list of remedies and how I responded to them.

1) high dose b2 riboflavin helped a little. first thing that helped.

2) coenzyme b complex. it worsened I think due to the coenzyme folic acid whyich seems to irritate the nerve but other vitamins were ok.

3) b12 sublingual methylcobalamin helped a little more but too much aggravated it.

4) magnesium glycinate and magnesium oil help a little a lot since it relaxed the muscles around the nerves

5) chiropractor treatment help a lot by moving the migraine over the eye to neuralgia pain on side and to the spinal column at times. this traced it to the C2 section of spinal cord so I could make a diagnosis of occipital neuralgia.

6) lysine helped a lot more. the therapeutic dose is 3 grams minimum 3 times a day. This helped me realize it was a herpes caused problem but only because the chiropractor took a layer of pain off the problem so I could figure it out.

7) vitamin C helped a little but not as much as lysine

8) potassium gluconate helped a little but I think because it is ionic form

9) cooling things to the mouth like mint. that actually helped a little also. I saw this suggestion from someone.

10) changing my diet a higher lysine to arginine ratio helped more than just lysine

This still was not enough. When I slept, my neuralgia pain acted up a lot more as I slept.

11) Since I had an overactive immune system, I ordered a product called moducare. This product has a lot of research in back of it. It is a low dose phytosterol combination that has been shown to balance the immune system. After I started taking this, I was able to sleep better and had less neuralgia upon awakening but still I had to be aggressive with Lysine.

11a) There is another product - micronized Beta Glucan which I have not tried that research has shown to be very effective to improve immune system. The regular beta glucan is useless for the immune system since it does not get absorbed. The form of beta glucan is more important than the quantity. The ideal size of beta glucan is 1 micron or smaller although 1 to 2 microns may be ok also.

12) The thing that has worked the best is the Terminator 2 Zapper. It combines the zapper circuit with an orgone generated by a mobius coil. It is suppose to be the most popular zapper in the world. I stopped taking lysine and other things then just started wearing the Terminator 2 zapper for 16+ hours a day. after 3 days, the virus seems to be more under control than with all those supplements.

I still take the magnesium to help with muscle tension but also because ME/CFIDS uses up the magnesium. I hardly had any neuralgia pain today I really have to test the Terminator 2 zapper out for month or more before I can truly give a more solid review.

Neuralgia causes a lot of pain so I will make an exception. I'd like to put this out there as soon as possible. this is another thing to try.

I am very cognizant that many people especially chronically ill may be on very tight budgets so must choose carefully what they buy. I strongly recommend buying the Terminator 2 Zapper. It has many generic health applications. If it doesn't work for one thing it may for something else. Running it 24 hours a day for one month would cost $3.50 in batteries (seven 9 volt batteries). You may save on supplements to make up for the cost of the zapper. I always tell people that it is worth buying a silicon enema kit because it has many health applications.

Afib Caused by Colonoscopy?

Posted by Marko (Wisconsin, US) on 03/25/2015

I had my first Afib episode shortly after having a colonoscopy. My sense is that the colonoscopy was a contributing factor. I am interested in hearing perspectives from others. Could it irritate the vagus nerve and cause afib?

 Re: Update on Beating Cellulitis

Wed, 25 Mar 15 21:44:05 -0500
Posted by Sherri (Long Island, Ny) on 03/25/2015

The cellulitis on my leg is almost gone! I am in shock over how fast it is recovering. I am still doing general detox remedies as well as the garlic as posted earlier but am taking 2 tsp. of amla with water after my meals. I did this initially simply to boost my vitamin C levels naturally so I could stop taking so much Ester-C. Well from the very first dose it started healing my leg. I could also feel activity going on in my lower intestines. It has only been 3 days on the amla and the cellulitis is almost healed! I would give it another 3 days and I expect it will be completely gone. If not, I will let you know. I don't know how it works, but I believe God's grace led me to it. It is Indian gooseberry -Amla organic powder about $20 a lb. Just warning you it tastes terrible - like sour dirt!

I plan on continuing it for a long time and to reduce the levels I am now taking. Right now I am taking 6-8 tsp. daily with meals. Right before I notice the most improvement I get very sleepy and a little dehydrated. I think this is because my body is detoxing. I have learned the hard way that when you body shows signs of dehydration (dry mouth) you must supplement with a natural salt as well as water. It is counterintuitive to think that you need salt when you are dehydrated but in Oct 2013 my salt levels plummeted and I had to be hospitalized. So now I have learned to take salt if I show signs of dehydration - but not iodized salt - it is toxic. (I also learned this the hard way.)

Of course if you are detoxing too fast you can lessen the amount of the supplement to slow things down. I may be taking a lot of Amla but I feel normal except for a little dehydration and sleepiness at night. All I know is that it is working. I will probably reduce the amount of Amla soon and I will eventually go down to 1-3 tsp a day for maintenance. I have a feeling the Amla is healing much more than only the cellulitis. I want to keep taking it for a long time to see if it addresses other health problems. If you are very sick don't give up, it may take months for your body to heal, even with the Amla. The cellulitis on my leg was about the size of a Tablespoon and has been there only about 6 months. Once you start taking the Amla it should be obvious that it is working though. This is what I have learned from my experience.

Robert Henry's Cleansing Formula

Wed, 25 Mar 15 21:39:07 -0500
Posted by Robert Henry (Ten Mile, Tn.) on 03/25/2015

HI U GOOD PEOPLE DOIN, , , , , , , , , , ,

I brought the subject up so I has to deliver.

We started off with Dr Grey's cleanse on Holistic Horizons some ten years ago , and modified it to this.

To a tall olive jar:

Add 2 tsp of Pysllium Husks, 1 tsp of Inulin, 1 tsp of Bentonite Clay, 1 tsp of Diatomaceous Earth, 1/8 tsp of Cayenne pepper. Fill the jar half full of water and shake until all is dissolved . Next fill the jar with any juice that you desire. We do tomato juice.

Next fill the jar with water and drink. After awhile your stool will change. Slowly build up this protocol to twice a day and more as time goes on. Once you are comfortable with your bowel movements then add the Holistic Horizions herb that will cause your intestinal plaque to turn loose.

This is not a short procedure that will cause you to have a healing crisis. My wife had a bowel movement only once a week for some 65 years or so, and after this cleanse, we fight over the downstairs commode every morning.

Eliminating toxins is the purpose of a bowel movement. If you don't buy in with my program , then find one that works for you.

Oregano Spirits for Cold Sores and Strep Throat

Wed, 25 Mar 15 21:24:31 -0500
Posted by Lisa (Birmingham, Mi) on 03/25/2015

[YEA]  My son had a sore throat for 3 days and was feeling so terrible I thought he might have mono. I brought him to the Dr. who did a throat culture that confirmed strep throat. I accepted the antibiotic prescription she gave us but didn't want to have it filled until I checked Earth Clinic. I have been a loyal reader for years and always recommend it to anyone who is sick. Anyway, since my son balks at taking the apple cider vinegar I decided to give oil of oregano a try before giving in to antibiotics. My kids have never had antibiotics, I have tried to steer clear of them so as to allow them to build a good immune system. I ended up buying oregano spirits, which is a tincture in alcohol, by mistake but it worked just fine. Within hours of his first dose there was a noticeable improvement and by the next day he was back to his old self. I gave him 10 drops in a glass of water every 6 hours for a day (I followed the dosing on the bottle). It worked like a charm.

Also, I read the post about using it on a cold sore and tried it when I felt one coming on my lip. I have tried Acetone, ACV, L- Arganine, and over the counter solutions but never had one stop right in its tracks like it did when I put the tiniest little bit on. Amazing! I will never be without a bottle of this in the house. Just had to share this with others as I was completely impressed!

Apple Cider Vinegar and Perioral Dermatitis

Wed, 25 Mar 15 21:20:41 -0500
Posted by Cara (Sydney, Australia) on 03/25/2015

[YEA]  I don't usually post on things like this but felt I had to, given that the posts on here healed my condition and gave me my confidence back again.

I'm 29, have had clear and beautiful skin my entire life. Never had acne or pimples on my face prior to getting this lovely little rash.

First, I'll start with the background of my condition: In the past, I have been diagnosed with both eczema and psoriasis, and for the eczema I was given a steroid cream to apply for both my body and my face. Over the years, this worked fine, I had no issues and it worked well. However, in the last year, I seemed to have a weird little rash that kept popping up - mainly on the right side of my face Around my chin. It was red and had loads of tiny little bumps that contained a clear liquid. I tried a variety of old creams that I had used on my skin conditions in the past - Bactroban, advantan, novasone, kenacomb, DermAid most of which being steroid based and quite possibly the worst thing I could do. Anyway, the novosone seemed to do the trick and kept it at bay for a while, but only if I applied it every day. However, over the course of the year, this seemed to loose its effect and I was at my wits end.

I went back to see my Dr, who told me sometimes people react with a rash from steroid creams, and to discontinue use - which I did. And wow, did my trouble begin after that! My rash spread all over my chin, around my eyes, and on my cheeks near my nose. It was horrible. I bought a multitude of lotions and options to try and get rid of it, nothing really worked. Luckily, I came across this site within a week of going off the steroids. I noticed loads of people had tried to Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) with success but thought it might burn the hell out of my face and was reluctant to try. I ordered the grape seed extract and violet something (can't remember exactly, it is yet to come), but have not used them. I thought bugger it, I'll try the ACV until they arrive. Here is my experience so far.

Treatment: first I bought ACV from the supermarket, unfiltered BUT WITHOUT the mother. The mother enzyme is very important. I feel it could explain why some people had success, others not.

When I applied the one without the mother, it stung a little - but not as bad as I thought. It didn't really do much, there was no 'fizzing or bubbling' of the skin like others described, and it didn't seem to do much at all.

I then went to my local natural store and bought ACV with the mother enzyme - brand being 'Briggs'. I placed it undiluted on my skin with a cotton ball. It fizzed, it bubbled - I was amazed! It bloody burned too, like my face was on fire. It stopped burning after a minute or so though.

Anyway, that was around midday. I applied again at night, and it was becoming bright red, painful, and seemed to be bringing more of the stupid little bumps out. I was devastated, I thought it wasn't working for me. I applied some more anyway just in case before bed, followed by some calendula cream to aid the healing process. I did not rinse the ACV off prior to putting it on, I just placed it directly over the top. This was yesterday.

I woke up this morning absolutely amazed, my skin looked 50% better! The rash seemed to be drying out, reducing, and the bumps receding! I am amazed! My husband couldn't believe the difference, and nor could I!

I placed more ACV on it, it has turned red again and drawn the bumps out, but please do not be disheartened by this, I strongly believe it is similar to draining the bad stuff out and killing it. I will post an update in the next 3-4 days, fingers crossed this continues to work! I am gobsmacked! Thank you all for sharing, without your help I would have been taking Rozex and Doxycycline the Dr prescribed, which from what I've read makes little difference long term with very bad side effects. Will update soon!
