 Re: B-17 For Cancer

Dear Madam,

My wife aged 48 years is diagnosed with stomach cancer and she completed 4 chemos. she is taking bitter apricots around 20 every day [except during chemo period]. I am not aware of b17 caps. can you pl give further details and what best can be done. After three chemos remarkable regression was noticed, but doctors say as it is spread over the stomach, surgery is not possible at this stage and suggested for three more chemos. Is it possible to control it with chemo and other complimentary treatment. I pray for your suggestion.

Diane, I came here to browse but saw your post and have to reply. I was able to turn around rapidly progressing PR in both my legs and arms caused by antibiotics about three years ago. It required extreme diligence. I cannot list everything I did, but the general areas were:

1. Absolute anti-inflammatory diet--but including raw eggs for the fatty acids in the egg yolks.

2. I kept my feet warm all the time. I kept my feet on a hot pad when I sat and worked. I wore socks with a sewn-on pocket at the toes, and inserted hand warmers. These stay warm about 10 hours. You can find these socks and warmers online. Any time I allowed my feet to get cold, I noticed a regression in the NP.

3. I took all the supplements recommended on this site, except ALA, as I was cautious regarding heavy metals and heeded the warnings of Cutler.

4. Metal detox. I did a few rounds of the Cutler protocol, and it was powerful, but products based on seaweed and modified citrus pectin are ideal as well. This is important as the metals inflame the nerves in our extremities.

5. Rebuilder. This is a machine like a tens machine, but it is supposed to have a pulse that stimulates the nerves. I used this religiously and it helped a lot.

6. Comfortable shoes. In my case, I found that flat and wide shoes were best. Any shoe that constricted even slightly, or slanted forward so that more pressure was one my toes, were catastrophic.

7. Swimming. The rhythmic motion and circulation helps, I was surprised by how much.

8. Visualization. I would mentally circle down through my legs and send my mind into the areas that were numb, encouraging them to come back online. I did this each day, especially before sleep.

I did many more things. One thing I learned on this site is the very basic combination of B6, methyl B12, and fish oil to help the nerves re-myelinate. Everything else is on top of that. If you can afford nothing else, at least do this.

Today, my NP is about 95% better. Don't give up, do the research and be diligent.

Thrush, Candida and the Sinuses

Wed, 20 May 15 07:14:31 -0500

I've been studying up and racking my brain since I experienced a raving case of oral thrush brought on by antibiotics and am wondering if sinuses is the connection.

I've just read Sam (Texas) post on the sinus infections page regarding baby shampoo and why it might help.

I don't actually have a sinus infection but got to wondering if candida problems are so tough to conquer, once and for all, because the hide in the sinuses. So I came to the sinus infection page to see if they shared some remedies, saw "baby shampoo" and got curious.

I've never payed enough attention to either of the two conditions to notice a correlation, as they are so rare for me, BUT I would say that I've had them both about the same number of times.

I never thought of them together, so I can't say for sure that they happened simultaneously, but on the same day my tongue swelled up and got yucky, I also had a sudden bout of post nasal drip and the only reason I remember that is because it came on, suddenly, in the waiting room at the dentist office where I was about to have all of my teeth extracted and I was concerned about gagging or coughing in the middle of all of that business.

Anyway, this is the worst case of thrush I've ever had, which is why I've been up for two days straight trying to figure out how to prevent it from ever happening again.

This was the first time in many years that I've taken antibiotics so I'm guessing that, if it was hiding in the sinuses and the antibiotics released it, then it must have been confined there by friendly flora, of which I would have had plenty, up until the antibiotics the dentist gave me and which I shouldn't have taken, because my teeth were so bad that I'd been having pretty regular tooth infections and successfully treating them naturally which kills the bad guys and leaves the good guys alone. So I've had a pretty clean mouth and throat for several years - and zero instances of sinus or yeast problems for about the same amount of time. Until now. Or, this past week, anyway. It's about knocked down, at this point, but boy! I sure don't want THAT bad of thrush again.

Actually, it might not have been that bad, I don't know. Maybe it's just been so long since I've had it that it seems exaggerated.

Anyway, I'm just wondering if those little yeast guys hide out in the sinuses while candida's in remission.

Aloe Vera for Nail Fungus and Other Uses

Wed, 20 May 15 06:02:11 -0500
Posted by Steffy77 (Washington Dc) on 05/19/2015

[YEA]  I had nail fungus after manicure, which would not heal for more than 3 months. My sister recommended fresh aloe vera juice to apply, which I did twice a day and it has healed 90 percent. It is an amazing herb, use for any problems and you must also take fresh juice on empty stomach. It is a guaranteed cure. It is also helpful for brown spots or pigmentation on your face. Just rub the pulp on affected areas morning and night for 3 minutes and go to sleep with it. You will find improvement in few days.

 Re: Osteoporosis

What it sounds like is the H2O2 used up much of your antioxidant stores, and you developed a form of scurvy, which amounts to a vitamin C deficiency. Other antioxidants could have been on the floorboards too (very low levels).

Without knowing which supplements you were taking, how much, and how often, it would be difficult to say.

Keep in mind that the body needs and uses both oxidative and antioxidant systems to keep the body healthy. It's a lot like acid and alkaline buffer systems. The body has and uses both. Health suffers when we knock things out of balance.

And one of the prime times we knock things out of balance is when we're fighting off health threats of one form or another, especially if we get aggressive with the treatments.

Liposomal vitamin C would be a fairly quick fix for scurvy. A good brand taken three times a day on an empty stomach should clear scurvey pretty quickly, if that's what your problem actually was.

Other things may also need to be done to restore health and balance.

After my cat developed a UTI, I learned that barley water might help him. After reading a bit, barley water appears to have some health benefits for humans too, has anyone here found Barley or Barley water to be useful? Earth Clinic has no information on the subject.

Hair Loss from Oily Hair

Wed, 20 May 15 05:57:33 -0500
Posted by Nelly (Cuenca, Ecuador) on 05/18/2015

I have had oily hair for around 20 years. Since then my hair started to fall. I have tried tons of shampoos and natural remedies also. I have gone to see Doctors and they have prescribed me many shampoos and they have also checked my blood levels. They say I am healthy, but my hair keep falling. Can somebody please recommend a natural remedy for my greasy hair? so it stops falling.

Thanks, Nelly

Using chemical drugs (treatment) for a long time can harm our overall health or cause a new problem. So good to balance it with natural remedy. But before trying any herbs, pls search enough information about the herbs or consult with herbalist/naturopath/dietician. As herbs can be strong enough or interfere with drugs. Turmeric has many benefits for health including cure for cancer, but search what the right dose is, don't overdose.

Urticaria - Roving Skin Rash

Wed, 20 May 15 04:54:38 -0500
Posted by Dave (Fountain Inn, Sc) on 05/19/2015

I've heard of this a number of times in the past few months...

In most recent case a male, aged 30 reports a rash breaks out intermittently on torso, legs, arms. Very itchy and with small welts. It goes away in a few weeks but a month later reappears in a different location.

This has been going on for about a year and a half. He has been to three doctors and given antibiotics. The rashes continue.

I asked him, if prior to onset, he had had any significant viral infections. Yes, he reported; a very bad and long lasting sinus infection plus some serious dental work that produced a long lasting infection on one side of his face.

With that I wondered if he had a blood born virus infection and discounted a fungal infection. However, I asked a long shot question....have you had any problem with mold in some damp area, at house or work, and ... one more...any problem with infection where dirt might have been involved. No mold...but yes to the dirt! He'd been playing softball and slid into a base and severely tore off skin while sliding into the dirt. Leg became infected and swollen for weeks.

So my thought is a possible double issue...virus plus fungi.

He is now on doses of colloidal silver three times daily. If his energy levels begin returning within 2 weeks, the infection theory might have some validity and he'd continue taking the CS for a considerable length of time.

If anyone else on EC has any other ideas please post.

Oh, also in the past 3 weeks he had begun having intestinal problems...digestion difficulty. My fear...perhaps the infection is not just in the blood but is invading other systems. So now he is also taking Apple Cider Vinegar in the evening...a tablespoon in glass of water.

 Re: Apple Cider Vinegar for Fibroids?

Wed, 20 May 15 04:49:24 -0500
Posted by Marcin (Toronto, Canada) on 05/19/2015

1. From what I have read, people are using it mainly to shrink the fibroid, but it will also help with bleeding. For excessive bleeding, you can use the herb shepherd's purse.

2. I do not think there is a problem in taking them during your period.

3. It really depends on you. My wife is taking 1 Tbsp ACV (with baking soda in water) and 1 tsp BSM (in tea) 2 or 3 times a day. At first it was 1 Tbsp of the BSM but I reduced it because I was concerned about the high sugar intake.

You can also try mixing BSM with a very small amount of beet juice and aloe vera.

Castor oil, cold pressed, is very effective with other benefits but beware of your linen. Stains do not disappear. Best to use at night, also in the eyes. It will promote sleep.

Namaste, Om
