 Re: Questions About Climate Condition Problems with Sun Gazing

I am very interested in trying this but I, too, am a person who lives in an ever-changing climate so what do you suggest for the winter months when I can not be barefoot against the soil? Also with the overcast days...sometimes, here, it is overcast with clouds all day long, what should I do in this case? Lastly, what if I were to miss a day for whatever I start where I left off previously or would I have to start over? I think the what if's need to be answered on this topic. I am very motivated to begin this practice but I have so many questions that are scenario-specific.

Try the blackstrap molasses (a good source of potassium, MG and iron) and it definitely helped me! Also started supplementing hawthorne and taurine. I think it takes a few weeks, but the bs molasses worked almost immediately. Good luck.

This is one of my top 50 posts :)

Firstly, I will be trying the remedy today as I am in pain with swollen glands and I am hoping for relief.

Secondly, I see both sides.. somewhat but have to say I side with "just leave the grammar be when it has nothing to do with a critical issue".

Can Apple Cider Vinegar Help Asthma/Bronchitis

Tue, 28 Oct 14 13:48:08 -0500

Posted by Missy (Bradford, Ohio) on 10/28/2014

I am 57 yrs old, have had asthma since I was little, but it never required me to get meds for it. The past 2 yrs I did notice a little that I would wheeze when I went out in the cold, or got upset, so I started using my grand-daughters puffer when I needed it...(I know..I should never do that) Anyway, the end of Aug. I went to my Dr., my chest was tight, and I was wheezing. She gave me a puffer for it, 4 days of presidone, and Abuterol for a Nebulizer. It got better for 10 days, then it got worse, so she gave me another 4 days of Presidone, plus an antibiotic for 4 days, and I quit smoking that day, Sept. 29th..(I had told her when I cough the AIR that came up tasted funny, like metal, which I think is infection..isent it?) and she changed my Nebulizer med. to ipratropium bromide and albuterol sulfate..

Anyway, it got better..alot better, I was wanting to be off the Nebulizer, but Dr. said 4 more wks, . The very next day I took a tour of a factory, I immediately could not breathe, due to glue there, and left the building wheezing. Two days (Oct 13) later I was worse, & had to go to the ER. They wrote Asthma/Acute Bronchitis, gave me steroid shot, another wk of antibiotic, and the 21 tablet presidon..I am much better, BUT I am coughing up alot of clear mucus, and every 4 hrs when its time for my Nebulizer, I try and wait, but become wheezy, and out of breathe. I also have allergies and clear mucus flows from my nose when I have coughing fits, so I am using a nasal wash, which helps...Its been 1 month since I quit smoking, coughing at nite a lot, and at 2am I wake wheezing..can the Apple Cider Vinegar HELP me at all???? I am doing Lung exersizes as well, and I exer. 45 min a day and ride a bike 2-3 miles a day. I have 2 more wks on Nebulizer..then what??? Will this go away???. sincerely Missy

"Solaray"tm makes a 100mg Haw flower extract/ 225mg Haw berry capsule that I found to be excellent. I find it works best with 300mg Mag and 100mg COQ10. I've used 3000 mg Hawthorn to get back to NSR. It doesn't hurt and won't kill you! The low dose of beta blocks is equivalent to strong aspirin. Love the BSM with my Mag/Haw also.

Questions About the Causes of Type 1 Diabetes

Tue, 28 Oct 14 13:43:28 -0500

Posted by Violet (Cerrillos, NM) on 10/28/2014

I am wondering about the cause of Type 1 Diabetes. When my daughter was diagnosed in 2012, we were told by the doctors that the cause of Diabetes is unknown. This has left me to search on my own (mostly online) and to form a few hypotheses. I feel that a contributing factor was an Epstein-barr infection that my daughter and I contracted in 2008. I know I have never felt quite the same energy wise ever since. (I was recently diagnosed with Hasimoto's thyroid, another autoimmune disease.) I had a shingles outbreak right before her diagnosis. I have read about the possibility of a connection to childhood vaccinations and have chosen not to have my other child vaccinated for this reason. We also dealt with mold in our home at the time of her diagnosis. I have read that allergies to food (especially milk and wheat) and a vitamin D deficiency can lead to Type 1 Diabetes. So my questions to all of you out there reading this are: What do you think led to yourself or your loved one being diagnosed? Was there any illness prior to your diagnosis that you feel contributed? Are you vaccinated? Are there any unvaccinated people out there with Type 1 Diabetes? Thank you to Earth Clinic. Wishing you all love, light, and healing.

[YEA]  I also have been at a loss in removing tea stains. I even limited my tea drinking. I had two ugly brown stains on front teeth.

After using 4 drops of peppermint essential oil and baking soda, stains were gone in 2 minutes.

Thank you, Kelly, for your suggestion. To my teeth, Kelly, you are a hero!

 Re: Multiple Cures for Moles

Tue, 28 Oct 14 13:36:59 -0500

Posted by Park (Korea) on 10/28/2014

[SIDE EFFECTS]  ACV worked in getting rid of my moles, but there were scars from the scabbing process. I read reviews that aloe gel works in healing scars from moles.

I tried aloe plant to treat the scar, but not the scar from my mole, I tried it on my hand instead, and it stings.. the aloe.. so I washed it away because obviously it was not working. the next day I woke up with allergic reactions on my hand from the aloe.

I looked for products that are actually clinically tested, and there's this one gel, dermatix silicone gel, it definitely worked.. in about 2 weeks the scars are almost unnoticeable.

 Turpentine, Lugols, Borax Water Time Distance Apart

Tue, 28 Oct 14 09:56:59 -0500

Posted by Bill (San Fernando, Philippines) on 10/28/2014

Hi Silversurfer...If you take the larger dose(laxative dose) of turpentine/CO then there's really no need to take anything else for the rest of the day in my opinion. This dose will act to kill and shift a heck of alot of candida, parasites, biofilms etc and get it all out of your intestines quickly at the same time. So this achieves alot. But you should only be taking the laxative strength turps/co once a week and perhaps afterwards rehydrate the body properly and also supplement some minerals. So if you take the higher dose turps/CO then there's really no need to take anything else for the rest of the day because the higher laxative dose will do an awful lot and your body will need a rest afterwards.

But you can also, as an option, take the lower dose non-laxative form of the turps/co protocol, which is much gentler, but I would always take this on a day on, day off basis as well because it should not be so strong acting. This lower dose should not cause a laxative effect -- it should only act to just loosen the stool, so you can also take borax, alkalizing and iodine a few hours before or after taking this protocol without problems.

It's also OK to take borax two hours before or after the lugols iodine. This should cause no problems.

Adult dosages for turps/CO for candida:

Gentle: 1 tspn turpentine, 1 tablespoon turps. Taken every other day or once a week for maintenance.

Strong laxative: 1 tspn turpentine, 3 to 4 tablespoons castor oil. Once a week only.

Notice that the dose of turps remains the same for both protocols. It is the amount of castor oil which makes the critical difference. This ensures, at the higher dose, that the turps is evenly spread throughout the whole intestines(all 28 feet) by the castor oil which also inhibits turps absorption into the blood. That's why this stronger protocol is so good at destroying candida and parasites quickly in the intestines, which is normally the throne and fortress of any candida infection in the body. This stronger protocol may not be pleasant or pretty -- but it works.

I feel so much better, I am allergic to many anti depressants.

 Re: Getting Rid of Mites

Tue, 28 Oct 14 08:33:37 -0500

Posted by Ruby (Sydney, Australia) on 10/28/2014

I believe I have demodex brevis mites. Everything that I have read about them describes what I am experiencing although all the doctors & specialists I have seen keep saying no, no, demodex only occurs on those with severely affected immune systems such as HIV etc but I tell this this is old school textbook and these mites are extremely adaptable and just because I don't present as "text book" to you, doesn't mean I don't have them. We are the experts on our own bodies and they simply can't treat what they know relatively nothing about. And yes, I've been continuously prescribes anti-depressants & anti-pyschotics but not been told what they are. Of course, now I always read the pharmacology on anything before I take it. These are not imaginary. Crawling sensation, followed by the pin-prick sting and a small bump a few minutes later which turns into a lesion (of varying degrees) that takes longer than normal to heal. For the last week I have been bathing in a mix of 1 part hydrogen peroxide (3%) with 3 parts distilled water, Borax (added until it stops breaking down in the water and you can see it on the bottom - use a plastic container to mix & store), with a few drops of lavender and a splash of tea tree. I cover head to toes... scalp, face, genitals.. everything (just watch your eyes!! ). This seems to keep them a bit quieter and I believe you need to apply this AT LEAST twice a day for 4 weeks. In my opinion it needs to be tackled from a few angles. Environmentally, topically, internally & psychologically (to stop us from completely losing the plot) as stress will make your "living environment" for these mites worse. Internally I am taking golden seal, a parasite cleanser (Parex), aloe vera juice, MSM, garlic supplements, magnesium & Vit C. I have drastically reduced ALL sugar (incl carbs), try to adhere to a yeast free (Candida free) diet. Environmentally I use borax and natural oils to spray on & around the house, vacuum daily, rotate clothing, hot washing everything REGULARLY. I am also about the embark on the psych aspect as it has become evident that support from medical practitioners will not come & I am fighting on my own. I need my mind to be strong. Good luck to you all. x

N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC) to Help Quit Smoking

Tue, 28 Oct 14 08:31:04 -0500

Posted by Jon (Australia) on 10/28/2014

[YEA]  N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC) = great for detoxing lungs - helpful for smokers or people who used to smoke! ?

If you smoke or used to smoke and want to clean out your lungs try NAC, this is an indispensable product.

Aside from increasing your body's production of glutathione, essential for liver protection, NAC is particularly effective in clearing your lungs of damaging carcinogens or any other detrimental pollutants.

In fact, if your dog is silly enough to go after a skunk and gets sprayed, and you take it to the vet, the first thing the vet will do is give it a 1K mg shot of NAC to clear its lungs of the spray, which can be toxic due to its preventing your dog's ability to breathe with that oil covering the oxygen intake cells. So, for liver or lung protection/healing, NAC is essential and well worth the relatively minor expense, considering the benefits of taking it in contrast to the damage done if you don't use it regularly while smoking.

This worked very well for us and its effects were immediately noticeable. It should be taken between meals with a B-6 tablet and 50mg of vitamin C in order to get the greatest benefit. I would recommend 2x 600mg capsules per day taken separately between meals for anyone needing the benefits of NAC. (If you smoke, you will cough more because your lungs are being cleared of tar and toxins.)

Hi Bill

Thanks so much for your encouraging and detailed response. You are amazing! Just wondering if you have any UT advice?

I have found this product in the UK and wonder what you might make of it. it would cover most of what I would need for the alkalizing remedies. It does not go quite far enough maybe for iodine protocol however. Or it might be rubbish!

What is new to me in this round of candida bashing is turpentine and borax. I'm going to give the latter a try for a bit and maybe try the other. The thought of castor oil and turps is worse than pee for me!

Anyway, many appreciations sent to you from a wet, wet, wet day in Scotland.
