Can anyone simply give a good place to purchase DMSO. Online stores or stores? Please provide names of places or email address of where to get it. Everyone keeps talking about it but no one really is saying where they purchased their dmso.

About 3 years ago, at the age of 14, my daughter was diagnosed with EDS. Her symptoms also started at puberty. She had constant pain in all her joints (except for her fingers and toes) and some days the pain was so intense that she couldn't walk. She also had constant joint dislocations. I found a video on Youtube by Dr. Ross Hauser about a treatment called Prolotherapy, which Dr. Hauser said could be helpful in treating EDS.

I was able to find a medical doctor in my area of New York State (Neil Raff, MD) who offered Prolozone Therapy (a newer version of Prolotherapy). My daughter had all her joints (except her fingers and toes), her back and her neck treated with Prolozone Therapy over a 5 month span. Her last Prolozone Therapy treatment was two years ago, in June of 2013. Since that time, she has remained pain free with no joint dislocation.

She is now able to participate fully in all physical activities with no pain or problems.

Prolozone Therapy was truly the answer to a prayer. I urge you to look into Prolozone Therapy further and I hope it proves helpful to your son.

I read about a 60 year old woman, here on EarthClinic, who has been healed by UVB light treatment (eximer laser). Her symptoms have been completely reversed. I wish she could tell us who gave her the treatment. And how comes this is not world news?

I will ask (again) for some Dutch doctors here and will let you know. In the meantime I sit in the sun, in lotus... now and then.

 Re: Lugol's Iodine for Goiter

Hi Catlin...I don't think that you need to worry too much about detoxing since lugol's iodine helps to remove mercury, aluminium, cadmium, lead and arsenic from the body. It will also remove bromine and fluorine from the body on its own. And the real reason for taking all the companion nutrients is really to help support the transport, storage and conversion of the iodine into thyroid hormones. The main function of the companion nutrients is therefore not to help you detox but to help support the many many metabolic processes involved in the final and successful production of the thyroid hormones. In this respect, the companion minerals and vitamins act like important cogs in a machine. If these cogs are missing then the machine will not work very well. So I would start by taking all the companion nutrients at their proper dosages as soon as you can.

Because you have goiter, this means -- from the research -- that you have excess hydrogen peroxide free radicals being produced in your thyroid which are not being quenched by the glutathione peroxidase enzyme. This produces corrupted proteins in the thyroid which results in an auto-antibody reaction by the immune system and goiter formation. That's why selenium is so key in this problem because selenium is the main central atom for glutathione peroxidase. If you don't have enough selenium everyday in your diet then you will not be able to manufacture enough glutathione peroxidase to help protect your thyroid against these free radicals which manifests in goiter formation. I describe all the companion nutrients and more in this Google doc. To further help you, here is a document on how to supplement lugol's iodine by Stephanie Buist who follows Dr Brownstein's recommendations on lugol's supplemetation.

Lastly, I would urge you to actively reduce dairy and cruciferous vegetables in your diet. Do not take calcium supplements if you are taking the iodine protocol to recover your thyroid. Both dairy and cruciferous veg contain high amounts of calcium. If you eat too much of these products then excess calcium will build up in your blood and this will act to inhibit the transport and absorption of iodine into the thyroid and the body. This is also why you should also take magnesum(as recommended in the companion nutrients) because magnesium helps to regulate calcium in the body. Magnesium, in an enzyme together with tyrosine, is also responsible for actively storing iodide from the blood as iodine in the thyroid...Like one of many cogs in an important machine.

Hi Mindy - Have looked into the possibility that your problem could stem from active trigger points, especially in the sternocleidomastoid muscles? To quote from the book "The trigger point therapy workbook" by Clair Davies:"Another unusual trait of trigger points in the clavicular branch is that they are apt to make you dizzy, nauseous, and prone to lurching or falling. Fainting may occur unexpectedly. This dizziness can last for minutes, hours or days. Often given a diagnosis of vertigo or Meniere's disease, it can become a lifelong recurrent condition, defying all treatments and medical explanations." Check out reviews of this book on Amazon. Best wishes to you.

Hi Mindy,

Given what you describe ... I've seen those symptoms a few times. What the way you discuss it I'd suspect, if me, more than just an ear infection which might be causing such dizziness.

If you have had problems with serious ear or sinus or face infection in the past which predated by months or even a year or so these dizziness episodes, an infection that has reached inside the skull.

Talk to your doctor about this possibility. I have used Colloidal Silver with DMSO together in a saturated white cloth placed on back of neck....base of skull. The DMSO is a solvent and carrier...Google "DMSO 60 minutes youtube" and you can see a three part series on DMSO. The CS might kill the infection. I've repeated this a dozen times in a month and as part of protocol I drink two tablespoons of CS twice daily for six months to make sure I kill any lingering infection.

I also get an irrigation into sinuses using an ear syringe and use ear syringe to squirt the CS into both ear canals. I have done that a number of times to make sure infection is out of sinuses and ears.

ALL the above assumes the cause is infection. A guess, but your Doctor might like some ideas. Pass this idea along to him/her and see if that might get some results.

ACV for Solar Keratosis on Arms and Legs

Thu, 28 May 15 08:54:26 -0500
Posted by Jess (Jackson, Ky) on 05/28/2015

I just have a question, I am wanting to start trying the ACV for my actinic keratosis/solar keratosis, but I have many small scaly red spots on my arms and legs and just a few bad lesions/spots on the bottom of my calves...Would you still recommend ACV for such a wide spread area...I have been fortunate not to have any problems on my face, back, stomach. They are just on my arms and legs and are very unattractive and I'm very self conscious about them. I have been to the dermatologist twice, where both times they froze/burnt off what bad spots I have but gave me no solutions for the unsightly red scabs I have all over my legs and arms! Thanks for any advice!!!!

 Melasma - 5 Year Update

Thu, 28 May 15 08:50:34 -0500
Posted by Es (Nj) on 05/28/2015

ES (formerly from NJ) posting to update here. It has been 5 years since I originally posted here, I've done nothing for melasma at all for years. It went away a few years ago (I had it for about 5 years). It went away when I stopped worrying about it and loved myself anyway. I'm now 6 months pregnant for the first time (at age 40). (Having a wonderfully easy pregnancy, BTW). Anyway, I go in the sun, I don't use sunscreen and I'm fine. I noticed occasionally a mild darkening of the skin on upper lip but it's very very very mild - NOT like it used to be AT ALL, and that would happen sometimes around my period and then just go away. Now, in my pregnancy, I'm fine. In fact, I just checked in the flourescent light of the bathroom here at work to make sure before I post this. I truly, TRULY believe it is mind over matter and our body's own ability to heal itself. But the more you worry and obsess and look at the spots, the worse they will get because your body can't heal while you are focused on having a problem. So... just my opinion... focus on loving your skin and self anyway. I know, it seems hard. I OBSESSED about this for years. But I finally gave up, figured I simply couldn't do any more to try to fix it, and I dropped it. And one day I realized it had gone away... and it stayed away. I'm healthy, but I certainly don't eat a perfect diet. I don't generally use sunscreen. I don't avoid the sun (I garden and ride a motorcycle all the time). But I don't sunbathe anymore either, but that's because I don't dig the wrinkles and also we just don't do the beach. ANYWAY... I used to search and search for hope online and found so little hope at all. So I'm here to share my story with you all and give you hope. IT CAN GO AWAY BY ITSELF. Also, yes I'm pregnant, and NO I'm not afraid of melasma, even though it's common in pregnant women. My body healed itself already so I'm not going to be afraid, I'll have faith in my body.

Best regards to you all!

Yes ORH, life IS interesting, and you are teaching us persistance.

On another note: I need a "for Dummies" primer on watering those 2 tomato plants: I guess I tend to overwater, as one small plant is getting white blotches on the leaves. So now I'm putting the water (less of it) in the tray underneath for the earth in the flowerpot to suck it up from the bottom. Is this correct?

Lugol's Iodine for Goiter - Questions for Bill

Thu, 28 May 15 05:50:34 -0500
Posted by Caitlin (Uk) on 05/28/2015

Hi Bill, I am hoping for a little bit of guidance and support to make sure I am doing everything right as I am recently new to taking LI to correct a multi nodular goiter. I am not yet on medication as my thyroid reading are still below borderline (hyper), I've had 3 aspirations which have not only kept the goiter size down over the last 5 years but they have all been benign too. I have looked for an alternative therapy now because this is the 1st time my reading have ever been borderline so I am wanting to be pro active in a cure rather than go down the medical route, of which my choices will be radioactive iodine, partial surgical removal and meds - er no thank you. so I have worked my way up to 5 drops of 15% LI (supplier confirms that 1 drop is 7.6 elemental iodine, so by my calculation I'm up to approx 45mg and this is in week 1), I am planning on more increases in the coming weeks. I am taking the lower dosages of the companion supplements, this is because I recently did a weeks juice detox 4 months ago (horrendous - wish i'd have known about the salt loading and supplements back then! ) and since the detox I have only eaten a vegan plant based diet with no processed food and 2 meals of the day have been raw plus I have a green juice everyday too, suffice to say I have only had mild detox symptoms so far. also I read (I'm not sure where because I've read so many different internet pages but I think it was from the book the iodine crisis) that if I am on LI treatment that I don't necessarily need to avoid cruciferous vegetables, can anyone confirm this because as a vegan these veg are pretty important to me? I'm healthy in every other way, I'm a perfect weight, I run a couple of time a week, I walk everyday, I do yoga, I've very active on a daily basis, my goiter so far has caused me no adverse effects other than cosmetic and even then its not that big, recently it has grown a fraction and my thyroid reading is just below borderline so I I just want to know I am doing all the right things, or if there is more that I can be doing, ideally in the long term I would like this goiter to have gone. any advice much appreciated.

Doesn't surprise me that a Cardiologist would say something like that, let alone any doctor. They generally have no idea! There's clinical data to back up Omega 3,6,9 supplementation and the benefits of diets which in them from natural sources. Don't be afraid of questioning your doctor. I did, and found an excellent holistic gp who is switched on!

This sure goes against the health minded professionals saying that our mass produced corporate agriculture practices are deficient in minerals.

BSM, raw or cooked Liver, Brewers Yeast, and Bee Pollen are the superfood exception to the rule of mineral depletion. Ionic Trace Minerals from Utah's Great Salt Lake is a superior source of major & trace minerals.

 Re: Obtaining Medical Oxygen For Ozone

What was it that crazy wise guy Jim Morrison said "go round the march". That is, why can't one simply use "industrial" grade oxygen (as opposed to medical grade) for the welding shop on the farm. I have also seen amateur folks using cheap oxygen generators for feeding ozone on YouTube.

Also, the corona discharge ozone purity problem, that is the production of nitric oxides, is not so with UV Ozone. UV Ozone does require more energy for production and has a shorter life-span, but it is much cleaner.

 Re: Dry Mouth

Posted by Dawn (Fort Worth, Texas) on 05/28/2015

Dry mouth can be caused by several issues. One very large factor is many medications can cause from mild to very severe dry mouth. Another thing that has an enormous effect for dry mouth, feet, hands, skin, or any area of the body is hormonal changes. This can mean anything from having a baby to getting older and going through the change of life and that would be for both men and women, men look up andropause, these hormonal changes have a dramatic effect on our water content in our skin, nails, hair, etc. One last thing to mention is to make sure that the gut is balanced properly. The intestines are where the majority of our balance for health is maintained. Anytime there is something with the body out of balance this is a very good give beginning point to look. Balancing this hugely important but often overlooked area of the body can assist dry mouth along with any other remedies.

[YEA]  I agree that you do not have to slowly add gazing times by 10 seconds a day. I accelerated my gazing very quickly and worked up to a full hour within two months over a dozen sun rises. I only did it at sunrise when the light was safe. I Earth whenever possible, but can't do it daily due to cold weather.
