Cayenne, Supplements for Erectile Dysfunction

Thu, 30 Apr 15 16:26:04 -0500
Posted by Silverark (Kelowna, Bc, Canada) on 04/30/2015

For Erectile Dysfunction: I recently switched my diet away from meat - beef, pork or chicken. A year later I developed ED.

So I began to take with breakfast, one tablet of 2ooomg of garlic and 1 tablet of 500 mg cayenne pepper.

Nothing changed until I added 1 tablet 50mg zinc, one tablet 500mg magnesium, and one tablet 500mg niacin to my diet. Within 2 days I was cured of ED.

BUT, do not take the cayenne pepper with the zinc, magnesium, or niacin. Take the cayenne separately, otherwise you will have hot flashes and itching.

I'm not sure which of the above, (zinc, magnesium, or niacin, ) is the cure, and I may try to find out by stopping one, and seeing what happens, but maybe not too. The 3 together work real good as far as I'm concerned, so why mess with a real good thing!

I also take 1 capful of Apple Cider Vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon of Baking soda, and 2 eyedroppers of hydrogen peroxide every day before breakfast, though I did this before the ED.

CherryJoy, Of course it will help any stage of BCC. Use organic raw apple cider vinegar and after generously wiping with a Cotton ball & allowing to dry apply baking soda & coconut oil. You should see results after 3 to 4 weeks. Stay away from chemical sunscreens and wear a large brimmed hat.

HI U Mmsg, , , , , , , , , , , here I am on the gulf beach at St George island Fla and you pestering me about coffee grounds on tomato plants.

Just messn with you girl. Yeah, plants must have enough nitrogen to grow but need potassium and phosphate for roots and fruit. Maybe you just need to get a good fertilizer and forget the table waste route until you feel comfortable.

We just pulled in a few hours ago and besides my face and hands, I's lilly white. We like it here because St George Island has not been turned into a carnival like Gulf Shores, Destin and Panama City. It's mostly old folks sitting in the sun letting their capillaries turn the rays into Vitamin D.

Anyways, I need to get into my swim trunks and join my lovely wife of almost 55 years. Will soak in the magnesium gulf waters for awhile, so I will sleep tonight. The Lord provides.... as he has told us all.

New Study Confirms Presence of Borrelia in Morgellons Patients

Thu, 30 Apr 15 10:16:01 -0500
Posted by Theestarseed (Bradenton, Fl) on 04/30/2015

A new research article in the scholarly journal, BMC Dermatology, has found the presence of Borrelia spirochetes, the organism responsible for Lyme Disease in 24 of the 25 Morgellons patients included in the study. The study proves that the fibers are not cellulose as previously stated by the less than rigorous study conducted by the CDC and Kaiser. Rather, they are composed of keratin and collagen from an overproduction of fibroblasts and keratinocytes in the epithelial cells located in the "deeper layers of the epidermis and root sheath of hair follicles " The fibers demonstrate the same appearance: nucleated at the base, composed of collagen, and blue in color due to the production and presence of melanin pigment.

This study offers hope to people suffering with Morgellons disease who are often mistreated by the medical community and dismissed as a patients with a purely psychological condition called Delusional Parasitosis. Hopefully, a larger scale study will replicate the results of this small, yet extremely important, study so that the people with Morgellons disease can finally get the proper medical treatment they desperately deserve for a condition now proven to have a somatic cause, rather than a purely psychiatric cause.

The following article is taken from

Here is the title -

Exploring the association between Morgellons disease and Lyme disease: identification of Borrelia burgdorferi in Morgellons disease patients.

Marianne J Middelveen1, Cheryl Bandoski2, Jennie Burke3, Eva Sapi2, Katherine R Filush2, Yean Wang3, Agustin Franco3, Peter J Mayne1 and Raphael B Stricker14*


Morgellons disease (MD) is a complex skin disorder characterized by ulcerating lesions that have protruding or embedded filaments. Many clinicians refer to this condition as delusional parasitosis or delusional infestation and consider the filaments to be introduced textile fibers. In contrast, recent studies indicate that MD is a true somatic illness associated with tickborne infection, that the filaments are keratin and collagen in composition and that they result from proliferation and activation of keratinocytes and fibroblasts in the skin. Previously, spirochetes have been detected in the dermatological specimens from four MD patients, thus providing evidence of an infectious process.

Methods & Results

Based on culture, histology, immunohistochemistry, electron microscopy and molecular testing, we present corroborating evidence of spirochetal infection in a larger group of 25 MD patients. Irrespective of Lyme serological reactivity, all patients in our study group demonstrated histological evidence of epithelial spirochetal infection. Strength of evidence based on other testing varied among patients. Spirochetes identified as Borrelia strains by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and/or in-situ DNA hybridization were detected in 24/25 of our study patients. Skin cultures containing Borrelia spirochetes were obtained from four patients, thus demonstrating that the organisms present in dermatological specimens were viable. Spirochetes identified by PCR as Borrelia burgdorferi were cultured from blood in seven patients and from vaginal secretions in three patients, demonstrating systemic infection. Based on these observations, a clinical classification system for MD is proposed.


***Our study using multiple detection methods confirms that MD is a true somatic illness associated with Borrelia spirochetes that cause Lyme disease. ***

Further studies are needed to determine the optimal treatment for this spirochete-associated dermopathy.

Oregano Oil for Warts

Thu, 30 Apr 15 10:13:15 -0500
Posted by Crystal S. (Carolina Beach, Nc) on 04/30/2015

[YEA]  I had a large wart, a little smaller than the size of a dime on the back of my left foot for at least 7 years. It was also about 1/8 of an inch tall/thick. I tried the freeze off stuff, the "fast acting gel", acv, banana peel, all of it, and none of it worked. after some time with all of the treatments, they spread to a little cluster on my heel and other places on both of my feet. it got to where I was so self conscious of my feet that I never wore sandals anymore, I always wore tennis shoes, and even when I would go to a friend's house, I'd make sure to wear nice socks so they wouldn't see the little bulge on the back of my foot.

After years of not wearing sandals and really wanting to, I decided to really look into what to use. I tried the "fast acting gel" for weeks, and it shrunk slightly, but not anything really drastic. I was looking on amazon at essential oils, and came across Oregano oil. several reviews said that it was the best thing to use for warts, it's an all natural antibiotic, and kills the virus quickly. I ordered some, and gave it a shot.

Now, several people will say that you need to dilute it because it will burn you. I never had this happen to me, so, I can't testify if that's correct or not. I took pieces of cotton balls, torn up into roughly about the same size as my warts, and put a generous amount of the oregano oil - straight, no dilution - on the cotton ball, placed it on my wart and covered it with a band-aid. this worked, but I thought, "why not try it with duct tape?" when I did use the Apple Cider Vinegar for the warts, I noticed the most effect when I had the duct tape on it, because it suffocated it, and made it to where the only contact it had was the vinegar, or ointment you were putting on it, and it makes it really soak in and generally makes it work faster and kill it. so, I did that, and it really sped up the process. within 1 week, the wart was already skin level. I was totally amazed, and even more so: it didn't hurt! I was sold.

What I Did:

Whenever I would get home for the night, I would take my shoes/socks off, and I would tear my cotton ball piece and get my oregano oil and put it on there and duct tape it to my foot overnight. the longer you can keep this stuff on there, the better. but you may need to change it every so often. I found that I didn't need to do that. I just left it on overnight. in the morning, i'd take it off, and shower. Now, when you've worn the oil on your foot overnight, it really soaks into the wart, but it doesn't make it swell up like vinegar does. if you take a shower right after you take it off, your wart will swell up with the water, and it will hurt. mine hurt quite a bit. to where I would take it off a few hours before I had to get into the shower, so it wouldn't hurt so much, but that's up to you. then I wouldn't wear anything throughout the day, just let it dry up a little. then, when I would get home for the night, I would get my foot file out and file it down as much as I could. I would file it until it hurt, or it seemed I was getting no where. then I would put my treatment on, and rerun the cycle.

I would stop treatment for a few weeks if I was really busy or if I was too tired to do my ritual before bed, and it didn't seem to grow back or anything, just kind of waited for me to start back up. I was worried how I was going to get the wart out of under the surface of my skin. I had read on here about how after your wart is gone it's nice pink skin underneath, and that sometimes you'd have a crater. maybe it was because the wart was on my heel where there wasn't much flesh or meat behind it, but when I used the treatment, it seemed to pull the wart out of the skin, like it just came to the surface, and when I would file it, it was filing it away for good. I was concerned it would try to spread under my skin or something, but it didn't. once I saw that the edges were shrinking, that it was getting smaller width wise as well and height, I really attacked it, and wore the treatment every single night without fail. soon after, it was gone. my skin was really red like a burn underneath the wart, but it didn't hurt.

I did have one wart on the inside of my foot that I had tried several treatments on first since it was easier for me to see how it was reacting, and it was also in a meatier place on my foot. it would get this hard covering and I could peel it up, but when I would start to peel it up, the whole wart wanted to come out, but instead of coming out cleanly, it wanted to rip away (sorry if it's too much information) from the healthy skin. nothing else was working and filing didn't really do anything, so I got brave one day and had a sterilized pair of nail clippers and just clipped it out. it bled a little bit, but since it's healed, it's all better.

I can wear sandals again, and it's wonderful.

The bottle that I got was 1/3 fl oz. and it was around $8 online, and it took a bottle and a little bit of the other. This was for the large wart, and the cluster on the outside of my foot. I still have 95% of the second bottle, so a little goes a long way! Try diluting it first and see if that helps, but for me, I used it undiluted. this stuff is a life saver!

What Remedies Can Help Low Platelet Count From ITP?

Thu, 30 Apr 15 10:07:26 -0500
Posted by Rajendra (Khandwa, Madhya Pradesh, India) on 04/30/2015

Dear All,

I am 65 years of age and suffering from ITP since last 6 months and at present my platelet counts are 8000 to 10000.

I was given immunogluobin by doctors in november 14 and platelets shoot upto 1.5 lacs but the effect of medicine not sustained and count again came down to 10000.

I was given Tablets such as Mycept, Neoral, Dapsone, Azoran, Folvite etc by doctors. These tablets caused me drousiness, pain in body, apetitie related problems and many more so that I discontinued the medicines and taken homeopathy treatment.

Still my platelets count are at about 10000 and there are red spots on my body from where sometimes bleeding also starts.

Is anyone can suggest some solution??

Garlic Stories

Posted by Kenike007 (Utica) on 04/30/2015

[YEA]  Hello Everyone. Ever since I was a tiny tot garlic has been a huge part of my life. I am full blooded Italian and I can remember while on my way to 1st grade school just a block away from my home my Italian Grandmother would hobble down the street after me calling for me to wait up..."Ashbet", she would call out, means wait in Italian. Then she would proceed to stuff a few cloves of garlic into my socks, for she believed it to keep the evil spirits away. When I went out to play at recess time all the wonderful healing garlic properties would seep into my pores and of course along with it, it's pungent odor. All the kids would run from me and say that I stunk. I would come home crying and of course my mother would pick up on the smell and find the cloves tucked into my socks. I can still hear her hollering to my grandmother, Ma, what are you doing??" My grandmother would reply, " I keeps the Evil Spirit's away", and my mother would reply to her, " and yes Ma, it also keeps everyone away! " Our Ancestor's knew the powerful knowledge of healing herbs.

Here's a great Garlic Recipe for ingesting or making into a tea.

*6-7 large cloves of finely minced Garlic

*1Tablespoon Raw Honey ( Make sure it is RAW Honey). Raw honey in itself is a powerful food loaded with enzymes. The junk honey you find on grocery shelves is refined and useless.

*Add a very tiny sprinkle of Cyanne Pepper appox. 1/6 tsp. or smaller. Cyanne pepper is a high source of Vit C.

* Put a teaspoon in mouth, chew and swallow as often as needed. I guess you can just swallow, but I chew it to release the potent allicin, then swallow. You can also put this into a tea with some lemon and other added super foods like tumeric, a bit of ginger, lemongrass or whatever you desire. Yum. I add a hint of stevia also.

Even without any symptoms, I take 1 teaspoon of this recipe at least 3-4 times a week to stay fit and well.

Hope this gave you all a laugh and helps!

How grateful I am for the healing herbs of Mother Nature. Love and Many Blessings of Wellness to you all.

After checking one of the other links about the effect on Candida, I now understand why this body is feeling currently worse. The mucus, pain in hand and finger joints, spinal stenosis symptoms of pinched nerves affecting neck, eyes, nose, ears, arms, skull (massive pain), depression etc. etc. - all part of the detox. I'm glad I read that as I had a feeling these are CURRENTLY detox symptoms and I'm prepared to continue until the boron in the Borax finally works, as I need a job. I'm 63. My meditation also gives relief to the pressure. Not a cure, but helps. Taking pressure off the mind takes pressure off the body.

Another place to get it in Oz is at Bunnings - same brand.

Good to read all this feedback on the effect of boron. I'm so grateful I finally discovered the info online. It gives hope.

Thank you all and I wish success - no more suffering and pain to you all.

I would like to take this apple cider/garlic juice/ginger juice/honey, and yes I would also add a little cayenne. I have had a stroke and 2 yrs to the date I had a heart attack, they won't give me a by-pass as it could be dangerous for me, but I don't want to be on medication forever also.

When I make the juice and take twice daily the advised dose, do I keep the rest in a container in the refrigerator?

I would love some feedback please. I am a New Zealander and I was living in USA for 11 years, I was very outgoing, I flew home to NZ to visit my family and the entire trip I never walked around, it was a stroke waiting to happen, the afternoon of my arrival home I had a stroke. I would dearly love for someone to advise me about this mixture please. Thanking you, Jacqi

I found that I could buy cheap Mastic gum online by looking for the greek version of this which is used in their recipes. 50grams for AUD$28. They call it "mastiha" powder and add it to a range of things, including alcohol.. but mastiha powder is the same thing.

H Pylori is known to cause colon cancer, it is possible that it may be causing prostate cancer too.

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  Oops spoke too soon. Sorry EC, I have to change my vote above to "Better but not cured".

Chilli definitely helped me, and was working very well for roughly 2 week, after that the affect wore off :'(. My body seems to have become accustomed to it now. Perhaps I should have been more aggressive!

The pains have been moving through my abdomen, and now into my hip.. that started after a big flare up from eating ripe bananas. It really loves the sugar. No matter, my Kombucha is still working well, and I am getting better at identifying foods that feed this (sugar and cheese are the worst). I have also learnt by observation that the Kombucha I take needs to be nice and sour, and that the first ferment stage works best.
