  Re: Alkalizing Formula for Multiple Ailments

Hi Rosemary. I don't know about chelating arteries, but I used to be hypothyroid and so was also on Levothyroxine. I don't like taking drugs and so tried kelp, artichoke extract etc which helped a bit. Then a couple of years ago, I started taking a tablespoon of organic coconut oil daily for another reason altogether. I had been recording my basal body temperature and was amazed to see, after a couple of weeks or so, that it was up from 36.1 to 36.6. Also I noticed I wasn't getting the 4 pm slump and my feet weren't so cold in bed. Coconut oil apparently stimulates the thyroid. The last 3 months I've also been taking between 3 ml to 5ml of Ionic magnesium and my basal temperature has stayed up, even when I didn't take coconut oil. Interestingly, most foods that are quite alkaline seem to have magnesium in them so maybe this is the connection. According to Dr Carolin Dean and others, magnesium is needed for over 300 bodily processes vital for good health. Apparently it affects sex hormones, heart health( hypertension and arrhythmia etc), the thyroid, diabetes, muscle tension and anxiety to mention just a few. I hope you find some helpful remedies .

Hello Rae H:

On the issue of neuropathy .... I've used AEP (a phosphate). Google "Calcium AEP Nutrition Review" for so many of the benefits of AEP I sometimes use AEP at 4 to 6 a day to help flare ups. Dr. Robert Adkins used AEP in IVs with his MS patients (see Vita Nutrients, the book, written by Dr. Adkins).

Enlarged Spleen Due to Portal Hypertension and Cirrhosis as a Chemo Side Effect

I want to know if anyone has tried onion juice (6ml) with lemon juice (10ml). I've been searching in google and found that is very effective, but want to make sure it is. My father has portal hypertension, cirrhosis splenomegaly and esophageal varices caused by chemo treatment (for colon cancer with liver metastases, but now his almost cured of it).

I've also read that papaya, dandelion tea are great for enlarged spleen.

Hello Sandy.

Earlier this year I was reading John Briffa's book about the diet trap in which he says lack of salt, or very little salt, can cause edema. Of course he was referring to good sea salt or pure rock salt and not the supermarket table salt with all the additives. My sister rang me and told me she had swollen legs and ankles and was worried about it and I mention Briffa's comments. She said she'd dramatically reduced her salt intake because she'd read salt caused high blood pressure and her BP was a bit raised. A couple of days later she emailed to say she'd increased her salt intake and legs were much improved! Have you also tried body brushing where, with a firm but not harsh bristled brush, you brush from your feet up towards your heart several times covering all areas of the body. This not only helps the lymphatic system and hence the edema, but gets rid of old dead skin and leaves skin feeling smooth. Best done in the morning as it can be too stimulating at bedtime. I imagine that herbal teas like nettle etc would help too as they flush out the kidneys and help the body excrete toxins and are generally a good tonic.(Susun Weed has an interesting blog on this). You might also want to do a bit off research into Chinese or Ayurvedic ideas about different body types or doshas( Vata, Pitta, and Kapha) and what foods suit or unbalance each one. For example Kapha is inclined to be lethargic and so needs spicy foods to stimulate their organs etc Good luck!

  Re: Experience With TMJ

I want to share my TMJ experience. 16 years ago, my jaw locked up. I could force it open but only with a loud pop. I question my judgement now, but for whatever reason I went to the dentist about my locked jaw. He advised a soft diet and grinded bits off my molars to "adjust my bite". When this didn't work he recommended surgery. My friend begged me to go to her chiropractor before having surgery. The chiropractor got me straightened out in about 4 weeks by manually massaging the jaw, spinal adjustments and e-stim on my face. He also prescribed exercises I could do at home, and over the past 16 years, when I felt the jaw starting to stiffen up, I would resume the exercises for a couple days. Now my TMJ pain is back! But this time with nerve pain attacks that shoot from the jaw into my teeth and chin. A different tooth each time, or even all at once, so not a normal toothache. I am working with a chiropractor but I am also trying to correct my posture. (I read that there is a whole plague of neck pain from looking at our devices 2 hours/day.) Try to be mindful to relax the back of your tongue, this will help relax the jaw muscles. Also be mindful to position the weight of your head STRAIGHT above your neck, this causes almost instant relief on the strained jaw. Imagine a helium balloon tied to your occipital bone lifting it straight.

Good luck!

Apple Cider Vinegar Cured Seborrheic Keratosis

Thu, 19 Nov 15 16:52:32 -0500
Posted by Rick (Potomac, Md) on 11/19/2015

[YEA]  Seborrheic Keratosis:

I had a spot about the size of a half dollar, raised 1/4 inch, on my temple under my hairline. I had a much smaller spot on the other side of my temple, but since it was under my hairline I didn't worry about this one. I have oily skin and play a lot of tennis and the spots occurred right where my cap fit an inch above eye level - coincidence? Maybe irritated the hat? I now try to play without a hat if possible.

After reading many posts on the subject I started using Apple Cider Vinegar on October 13, 2015 three times per day diluted 1:1 with no bandaid - I just blotted it. The progression went to the size of a quarter, then nickle, dime, and it disappeared completely on November 17. This is after a liquid nitrogen treatment a year ago did nothing. Great stuff and only cost $1.25! What a safe, easy, and inexpensive way for getting rid of it.

N: I would encourage you to not give up despite your big attempts for a cure. The path of healing gets bumpy oftentimes.

The go-ahead method would be improvisations and broadening.

Beginning with bone health. Vit-D & Calcium are important but other nutrients are needed. Boron, Manganese, Strontium, and of course Magnesium are needed by bones. Vit-K is important.

Now for teeth & gums, Selenium & CoQ10 works w/ Vit-E to prevent gum disease. Drop the oil pulling to once every three or four days and substitute w/ Colloidal Silver and on the next day Zinc/Elderberry Lozenges.

Speaking of Zinc, many people (particularly those with diabetes or thyroid disorders) cannot properly convert Beta Carotene to Vit-A, leaving the vulnerability to diseases of skin, ear, nose, throat, lungs, and kidneys. Zinc & Vit-A bond together to protect & heal epithelial tissues, so take a minimal 5, 000 iu Vit-A softgel with the Zinc. A broad spectrum remineralization for teeth & jawbones by swishing would be Ionic Trace Minerals from the great salt lakes of Utah. Occasional swishing of Hydrogen Peroxide should be beneficial.

  Re: New Product Sulmedol for Lactose Intolerance

Thu, 19 Nov 15 10:25:32 -0500
Posted by Cheesygirl (Kingston, Ontario, Canada) on 11/19/2015

[NAY]  I heard about Sulmedol and after much consideration, I tried it. I was told by a gastroenterologist that I was lactose-intolerant, even though he did not do any tests to confirm his diagnosis. Another doctor told me that lactose intolerance is "fashionable these days".Are flatulence and diarhea also "fashionable"? So after spending a lot of money on lactose enzymes to try and counteract my lactose problems I saw Sulmedol and I thought, "why not?" I was very careful not to use any dairy products for 4 weeks, as they suggest on the label - and this was harder than you'd think because dairy products are in so many food items, like whey in gluten-free breads, and of course butter in pretty much everything. I used the Sulmedol as directed, twice daily. The big day came when I bravely added a small amount of coffee cream to my coffee. Soon after, the gas started, and then the frequent bowel movements. So unfortunately, Sulmedol did not work for me. I wish it had. I love cheese of all kinds, so I'm back to lactose enzyme pills. Boo, hiss!

Be careful with the oils. There was a study that linked lavender oil to high estrogen levels and young girls and boys developing breasts. Not saying they are bad, just research before use.

Seeking Correct Supplements for Infertility and PSOS

Thu, 19 Nov 15 10:23:45 -0500
Posted by Chico (Athens, Greece) on 11/19/2015


I have PCOS and joined today after a few days of reading everything to do with pcos, infertility etc.

I am 35 years old, my pcos is relatively minor (no facial hair, super healthy and slim, no acne) and have had two miscarriages (no specific reason apparently - just happened) and have been trying for a few months to conceive again with difficulty since my periods are usually two weeks late and I have no idea when I am ovulating and if. My partner also has some slow sperm mobility and not great morphology. Our doctor concludes that I am super fertile, all is fine, eggs are fine but that with PCOS will take time and perhaps will even needed to do IUI or IVF if takes too much time. He has told my partner to take better care of his health and he is on supplements to better his sperm.

I have read extensively all your great comments on remedies for pcos, very little here on male fertility and what could boost that but my question is which of all of these is the best for me? Are they all okay to take whilst trying to get pregnant? I presume I cant take them all:

  • chaste tree berry vital
  • iodine (Lugols)
  • b complex
  • kelp
  • spearmint tea
  • green tea
  • progesterone cream
  • vitamin b 12
  • cough expectorant with guaifenesin
  • vitamin b6

And what could he be doing?

Thank you very much in advance for any helpful advice!

Posted by M. (India) on 11/19/2015

[SIDE EFFECTS]  I am a woman and suffer from severe rosacea and demodex mites. can sometimes feel them crawling on parts of my face and eyelids. I have started internal borax treatment for my demodex after being encouraged by the reports on earth clinic. I ordered griffith borax and mixed about 1/10th teaspoon in filtered water and sipped it all day. distilled drinking water is not available in India

today is my 4th day- started on 16th, Monday. my face is quite red and inflamed for last 8 -9 days. There is no relief since I started the borax- face continues to be really bad. I just feel tired and a bit nauseous.

I can't do borax and peroxide since I also have dermatitis and very sensitive skin.

Please help with some advice on what I can do.

Thanks, M

How Does Oil Pulling in the Mouth Trigger Healing in the Body?

Posted by Rosa (Maseru West, Lesotho) on 11/19/2015

I am new on the site, I just wanted to know how oil pulling helps other body systems while it just happens in the mouth. I understand how it has worked whitening teeth to other users, but I don't understand its magic in the body. I am going to use it too for curing my ganglion cyst on my hand, just to give it a try. Thank you all for your input. #Rosa#

Vitamins E and D, CoQ10 Helping Fibrocystic Breasts

Thu, 19 Nov 15 10:16:09 -0500
Posted by A.b. (Usa) on 11/19/2015

[YEA]  I have been struggling with fibrocystic breasts - the pain starts 10 days after the first day of my cycle. About 3 weeks ago I started on Vit E (400iu) and CoQ10 which is supposed to be very helpful. I also realized I was very deficient in Vit D so I started on it. I'm noticing a difference already.

I will incorporate iodine once I get my Vit D level stabilized as I think the deficiency worsens the detox that comes with iodine. A Vit D deficiency can make you uncomfortable in both your groin and armpits which really contributes to the breast pain since it is so near your armpit.

Also I have read that Vit D does help balance estrogen.
