[YEA]  Did this. and it worked! I gargled one part ACV to 3 parts HOT water from a coffee mug every two hours. It was nasty, but by the end of the day my strep was fading!

Hi Sue, read the book Heal Your Headache by David Buchholz M.D. It's a three step program and food is one of the steps. You're right, MSG is a culprit.

I cured a painful tooth infection by taking 100mg of Iodoral a day. I don't know if you can start the iodine protocol at a dose this high though...I was already taking 50mg a day when I doubled it for the infection. The pain stopped completely on the 3rd day. That was a couple of years ago. I hope this helps someone.

 Re: Dietary Changes and Apple Cider Vinegar for Psoriasis

[YEA]  I read your comments on the itching, especially the burning! That is for me the very worst. I learned that when the burning and itching is making me crazy I treat the area with apple cider vineger solution. The burn and itch goes away quicky! I also use soverign silver drops and they help me a lot. The itch and the burn are mostly gone now and my skin is healing and feeling much better. I use a vinegar rinse after I shampoo. I let it sit for 2 or 3 min and then I rinse and use an organic conditioner. I hope this helps you as much as its helped me.

Sjogren's Syndrome Causing Severe Intestinal Problem

Sun, 25 Jan 15 09:20:20 -0500
Posted by Diane (California, US) on 01/24/2015

Is anyone else suffering from the protective intestinal layer being dried up by Sjogren's? And also exocrine pancreatic insufficiency? I take vegan replacement enzymes which really help but the depleted dried out intestinal layer is what protects it from tomatoes, spices, garlic, etc. and also is responsible for absorbing the nutrients. So I weigh only 89 pounds (5'4.5") because of that and cannot eat any food that injures the lining. Does anyone have any natural remedies to help heal or coat that protective layer that Sjogren's 'likes' to dry up?

 Candida Diet Protocol Questions for Bill

Sun, 25 Jan 15 07:58:55 -0500
Posted by Bill (San Fernando) on 01/25/2015

Hi Pj Merk...Since you have such a multitude of problems that seem related to your candida I would break up the protocol that is advised in my book. I'm advising this because I think the combination of candida Herx or die-off, heavy metal detox and parasite-kill side-effects might be too severe for you.

Therefore I would advise, out of kindness to yourself, that you should initially take it slower and break down your protocol into the following three separate stages which would make it easier for you to cope:

1. Take the Full Hulda Clark Parasite Protocol for at least 3 months

2. Heavy Metal Detox for at least 1 month

3. Start the full anti-candida protocol.

My updated anti-candida protocol is a sort of quick reference cheat-sheet that might help you to more understand the main protocols given in my book. See this link.

Heavy metal detox can be achieved using a variety of nutrients such as sodium thiosulfate, lugol's iodine, alkalizing, chlorella(detoxes the intestines only) and raw cilantro(in your diet). All these nutrients are described in my book. Other detoxers such as tannic acid(1/4 tspn in a llter of water per day) or green tea could also be used.

Your methylation problems, pyroluria issues and high heavy metals all seem to be inter-related. These problems have probably all originated because of your low body levels of B6 and zinc. Zinc is very important for the immune system. Vitamin B6 is absolutely critical in the methylation transulfuration pathway as the main component of one particular enzyme that converts homocysteine to glutathione -- the master antioxidant and main heavy metal detoxer for the human body. This implies that your body's glutathione levels are extremely low, which is what has probably allowed heavy metals to accumulate in your body, unchecked, over a long while. So your high levels of Mercury, Silver etc don't surprise me. In other words the production of glutathione in your body will be almost non-existent. The normal way to ensure proper levels of zinc and B6 in your body in order to cure pyroluria is to take high dosages of zinc( 200 mgs to 400 mgs per day) and B6 (100 mgs to 200 mgs per day) -- but such a protocol should be properly regulated and monitored by a knowledgeable doctor. Folate is also necessary to help regulate the endocrine and adrenal systems properly. Methylation issues can be extremely complex and difficult to understand, so I have assumed that you have seen a methylation-literate doctor and he is advising you already on these issues(as well as aberrant MTFR gene issues). If you want a good website that de-mystifies the complexity of methylation issues without all the research alien-speak then try Ben Lynch's website.

Also, if you lack zinc in your diet or due to an issue like pyroluria then your zinc levels will also be low. Copper competes with zinc everywhere in the body, so if your body has no zinc then copper will replace it and will tend to increase in the body over time and this imbalance is not healthy for the body.

For the lack of lithium in your body I would take what Ted recommends -- 2.5 mgs to 5 mgs lithium per day. Too much lithium can have adverse effects on the brain. Take the lithium orotate form and avoid the lithium aspartate form.

Because you have under-methylation issues then this means that you will have high blood histamine levels and therefore you might also be suffering from excess inflammatory issues and pain and might also have food allergies or asthma. What would help here would be to take Black Seed Oil(Nigella sativa) -- two or three teaspoons a day. Bovine colostrum(as the powder) is the other nutrient that will help to repair leaky gut issues and stop food allergies because it helps to reduce the permeability of the gut thereby curing leaky gut and does so much more besides. See the research on colostrum here, here and here. Gymnema sylvestre tea or powder will also help to reduce blood sugar levels in your body as well as help prevent the candida morphing into its more virulent fungal form.

If your condition was helped with the diarrhea in Mexico then I would certainly advise taking the turpentine/castor oil protocol at least once a week at the full laxative dose (as advised in my cheat-sheet link above). This will help clear out the intestines on a regular basis thus helping to kill and clear out the candida and other pathogens in the intestines fairly quickly. This will also help remove biofilms, heavy metals and toxins from the intestines. But you will still have to clear out the fungal candida from the blood at the same time, otherwise the fungal candida will come back to re-infect the intestines again. The reasons are all described in the book.

A final word of caution with your use of lugol's iodine(LI). Because you body has such low levels of both glutathione and zinc, it would seem very likely that lack of both these particular nutrients in your body(which are critical for proper iodine processing in the thyroid) might cause you problems when you first begin to supplement LI. So initially start LI with a small dose and see how it goes. You really need normal levels of body glutathione and body minerals in order to avoid problems with higher dose LI -- so please go careful with LI.

Dear Yekara,

To answer one of your questions to me; yes there is a cheap and easy way to make your own CS.

Go to the top of Earth Clinic page and see "Videos"... there are eight, and one of the eight is by me on how to make CS. To buy a unit costs less than 80 dollars.

The Lyme will keep you from sleeping. Once you are on CS, in a few weeks, your energy and ability to rest will increase. You can have the CS generator within 3 days. Google "Colloidal Silver generators" and you'll find many...add on "cheap" or "inexpensive" and that might give you more sources.

Iodine Added to Saline Rinse Cured Sinus Polyps

Posted by Allgood (NE Georgia) on 01/24/2015

[YEA]  Sinus polyps and infections:

I had sinus problems for many years--3 surgeries--fungal infection etc--finally saw dr donald dennis in atlanta--he always saw polyps until I added provodine iodine 10 percent--10+drops per cup to my saline rinse. My polyps suddenly went away--he now recommends adding potassium iodine to rinses--said he has cured many people--even a friend he had been treating for 10 years--it certainly has turned my life around.

 Re: Immediate Relief Using Apple Cider Vinegar Bath for UTI

Sat, 24 Jan 15 12:18:42 -0500
Posted by Carolyn (Nj) on 01/24/2015

[YEA]  I woke up in the night with urgency and within a half hour was urinating blood and unable to get off the toilet. I have had many UTI's before so knew immediately what it was. Got online and saw the apple cider vinegar remedy. I drank 1/4 cup of organic ACV with water and honey. I also filled a pyrex cup with half vinegar, half warm water and then (in the shower) held it cupped around my vagina for about 8-10 minutes (it's a bit awkward but worked). I have to say the relief was almost immediate and I could actually go back to bed and sleep for a bit. I did follow up with my Doctor this morning. I will definitely use this technique at the first inkling of trouble again.

Hello Henrietta,

Try colloidal silver. You can take it orally and soak a bit of cotton ball and hold it to the abcess for a bit.

Hello Char,

American Health has ACV pills in 480 mg strength. But before you resort to pills, have you ever tried mixing with apple juice? I discovered this when I had gallstones last year. I don't care for apple juice but I found that I do like it mixed with ACV. I use the Mott's for Tot's because it's very lite and doesn't have a lot of sugar.

Dear Ronny,

You should be able to get borax at a Wal Mart or larger grocery store in the laundry section.

Turmeric is great for inflammatory skin conditions. You can try 4 capsules three times a day with a 12 ounces of water each time.

Some have found Comfrey Root Ointment to be helpful. You can get dried comfrey root from Mountain Rose herbs and make your own ointment if you want to. If you want to do this I will explain how.

I would also consider Castor Oil and/or extra virgin coconut oil on the areas overnight.

Let us know how it goes for you!

Dear Terri,

Frankincense essential oil is pretty gentle and I use it straight at times, but not near the eye area. Using near the eye I would dilute with a carrier oil. Maybe 1:5? Maybe less. Even diluted, I would try a small amount and make sure it isn't irritating the eye, and then dilute more if needed.

 Re: Vitamin C Type for Varicose Veins

Dear Lisa,

I like the Nutribiotic brand of Ascorbic Acid form of Vitamin C. It is good quality and inexpensive. I mix one part of that with 1/2 part of baking soda to make sodium ascorbate (when I mix it in water.) That is easier on the system.

I can also use the Ascorbic Acid to make Liposomal C.

I used to use the NOW chewables because my children would take them readily, but they had sorbitol in them and some fillers, which I wanted to avoid.

 What Brand of Apple Cider Vinegar Pills is Best?

Posted by Mama to Many (Tennessee) on 01/24/2015

Dear Char,

My husband uses the NOW Apple Cider Vinegar pills. Everyone is different regarding the dose. It is best to start with just a pill or two a day and add more if it is not helping you with what you are trying to heal. Be warned, the pills smell quite strong. But my husband does prefer them to taking vinegar in water.
