 Re: Urine for Cysts

Warning! Someone here recommended using their own urine on a cyst on this forum. It may sound attractive to some of you because of its new-age/ayurvedic connotations but it really is non-nonsensical. Urine contains much bacteria and bacterial infection is on the the main complications with sebaceous cysts. You might as well smear it with garden compost!!

Whatever you do, don't put urine on a cyst.

Coconut Oil and Patchouli Essential Oil for Tinea Versicolor

Sun, 22 Feb 15 10:04:14 -0500
Posted by Shan (Md) on 02/22/2015

[YEA]  My Tinea Versicolor went away after I did this:

I made a lotion out of coconut oil and patchouli essential oil. I'm not sure if its the coconut oil or the patchouli but it went away after about week. I had it so bad for years...I only use it once a day, after I get out of the shower. I do notice that if I dont use it for a couple days I will start to get itchy again. And it smells a lot better than using ACV!

Hi Pat,

A woman on another site had trouble getting magnesium into her cells and had resorted to daily injections to bring her RBC magnesium levels up. She found that magnesium orotate, in Cardio Mag2, an OTC supplement was able to increase her level higher than any other supplement or injection she had tried. She has her RBC mag checked regularly and says this is the best for this. I do not believe she has AFib, but it might be something to investigate. Best wishes.

Is This Bacterial Vaginosis or Something Else?

For about a year now I've been suffering with heavy discharge and a horrible ammonia like smell to accompany it. It's been the worst year of my life and has been horribly humiliating to live through. I'm honestly so sick of having this. The reason I thought this was BV was because before it started I was having hot baths and used ordinary shower gels down there (I feel so stupid now I know you're not meant too) but I've been to the doctors several times and been tested and each time it came back with nothing. I even got a blood test for possible iron deficiency and still nothing. I don't understand what's causing this and why it doesn't stop I'm at my wits end with this I don't want to have people talking talking about how bad I smell behind my back anymore.

I've tried BV activ gel, tea tree suppositories, vitamin c suppositories, taking acidophilus, taking probiotics, taking fenugreek, rephresh gel, baking soda bath, ACV bath, metrodonidazole tablets I don't know what else to do

I always wear cotton underwear and I wash with lactacyd Femina wash down there. I'd appreciate any advice because this is ruining my life.


 Re: Will Hydrogen Peroxide Help Vasculitis Arthritis?

[NAY]  Don't recommend the use of IV H202 as the body was never intended to have unleashed peroxide randomly coursing through veins. Peroxide is produced by WBC and other immune cells in an attempt to destroy foreign invaders "in a controlled" setting. Within the cell wall of WBC, macrophages, etc. where the damaging properties are confined and the rest of our body is protected. So no, don't worsen a condition by the careless use of peroxide.

I have had LS for about 15 years. Your post concerns me because you fail to consider that this is a progressive disease.You are in the early or mid stages, and I assure you there is no going backwards. I urge you to arrest the progression before you have irreparable damage. By the symptoms you are reporting, the disease is marching forward. This is not good..

There are stages to the disease that are much worse than you are experiencing now. I urge you to seriously educate yourself on this disease. I know a great resource!!

I belong to a wonderful LS support group, well over 10,000 women and men are members, discussing what is working.. Please get ahold of the LS before it progresses much further.

Here it is:


Sincerely, Cyn

Hi, I use Apple cider pure on cotton wool and leave my hands to soak it up. When I use the apple cider vinigar it also helps with the itching. It drys the blisters up. Then I put on coconut oil on the day after to keep them moisturised. Soon as you see any sign of blisters, soak hands in Apple cider.

Take MSM with Molybdenum to remedy the sick feeling MSM gives!

... If taking MSM, garlic, onions or other Sulfur rich foods makes you feel sick? take some molybdenum.

"I had a bad reactions to high sulfur foods (a garlic and onion soup I made) which I had not experienced in the past, and indicated to me I was getting sicker.

I started out with 300 mcg of Molybdenum and worked up to 1000 mcg. WOW! Not only did the Molybdenum take care of the 'sulfur sickness' I was experiencing, but the brain and thinking problems cleared up and I had a lot more energy after only 3 weeks.

Thanks Bruce!

I am glad you are finding alternative ways of looking at your health issues here. I have been posting and reading (mostly reading) Earth Clinic for years now! Amazing how fast time goes by.

Re E.C.: there are so many people on here that are MUCH more informed on natural cures than I am. We all share what is true for us, and people can either take it, or leave it...the point is sharing our experiences and attempting to maybe help even one other person. Nothing is written in stone for each individual...nor should it be!

Doctor Blaylock is an interesting read. Also, look on youtube for some talks by a Doctor Frank Shallenberger. He has some very interesting lectures as well. Not all will apply to you, but the ones that do, are just awesome.

MSG and glutamates....horrible stuff. Taurine (an amino acid) counteracts MSG. It competes with it in your system. My husband would get heart palpitations after eating a French dip with the au jus at a certain restaurant. I tasted the au jus, and it literally burned my tongue. Not because it was hot...because it felt like so Damned CHEMICAL. So anyway, that was when I looked up what counteracts MSG....turns out is it the amino acid Taurine.

Because my husband continues to eat fast / ie CRAP foods....I make sure his daily vitamins include a 500mg of taurine daily. He has not had another horrid reaction for a couple of years now.

I am rambling...just wanted to say that I am glad you found Earth Clinc, and welcome aboard!

 Re: Update Request on Remission of Graves' Disease

I actually still meant the IgG testing as the IgE testing is only for anaphalactic/ histimine type reactions. Those allergies do not apply to our thyroids like IgG immune responses do.

Here is an explanation of the differences. Most allergists do not believe IgG responses are responsible for doing any damage to our thyroids or any other body parts for that matter. You have to go to a Naturopath or some other healer who can do food allergy testing for you to get a better idea of what your IgG immune sensitivities are.

I also just realized someone wanted to know how I was doing now. I am much better. Still working on my health naturally as I did some things that may have caused my thyroid to go the other way. I am now only Hashimotos thyroid and my Graves is still in remission. It turns out I had both issues but was only experiencing Graves. But now my Hashimotos is dominant. I have had alot of stress lately as my husband just had a kidney transplant and was very ill before that so now we are trying to focus on getting me better again. Stress can do so much damage to our bodies:( I am still taking most of the supplements I listed above though. As they are so important to thyroid health. There are some new ones that I will list in a separate post.

This happens with a lot of runners. You are sweating out all your minerals. There are 60 basic minerals all to be taken in liquid form. Lots of collodial minerals available online. Get the one that comes from Utah. Probably take 90 days to correct. Good Luck.

To Myway, Delaware: How do you check your RbcMagnesium? What test is that? Since you say "serum mg" isn't the same? Never heard of it. I hope I get some relief from something soon. Back on the 25 metapropol again since 2 mos after going off everything the afib episodes started coming more frequently(every 3-4 days) as opposed to every 2 weeks or so and I thought that the medicine must be helping afterall so went back on it. Will check out the chiro but I am afraid it may make bring on the afib, too! Taking my time on that one. Wish they had a pill that really worked! No rhyme or reason to this! Very frustrating condition, not being able to control it! Must be something they have done to our environment! Too many cell towers, etc.messing with our electrical systems in the heart! Keep searching for answers but don't know if I will find any! Already taking so many supplements! That is a pain, too! Do they really do anything??

 Re: Potassium and Multiple Remedies for Migraines

Just an update. I have come to the conclusion that I have Occipital Headache causing migraine.Still trying to find a solution for it. I think the way potassium may help the nerve pain is the ratio of sodium and potassium in body effects the nerve firings.

Too much salt in blood could make nerve firing worse so potassium is an antidote. I have come across one anecdotal report who minimizes salt in their diet and it has helped significantly. So just one more thing to experiment with.

You guys are so wonderful to share such promising information. I am filled with such hope as others who have responded here. Thank you all. Oh, my allergist told me he would test me for IgE once my thyroid got better so I believe that is what you meant to say (see below). Also, thanks again for listing out the minerals and vitamins, eye exercises, drinks, etc. So, very helpful!

An immunoglobulin E (IgE) test measures the blood level of IgE, one of the five subclasses of antibodies. Antibodies are proteins made by the immune system that attack antigens, such as bacteria, viruses, and allergens. IgE antibodies are found in the lungs, skin, and mucous membranes.

Taking Magnesium for Eye Swelling Caused by Botox

Sat, 21 Feb 15 22:25:49 -0500
Posted by Wendy (Maryland, US) on 02/21/2015

I have had Graves disease for almost two years. I had no eye or eye lid swelling until a couple of weeks after getting botox for frown muscles above my eyes, but over my eyelids. What a mistake. Apparently, my immune system then started attacking my eye tissue after it attacked the botox toxin. Please tell everyone to avoid botox when suffering from Graves disease because it can then cause the eyes to start swelling. Back to natural methods for reducing eye issues related to thyroid disease; I also read that magnesium is one of the number one minerals missing with those with this condition and how supplementing with the correct dose (in equal amounts to calcium, not on 2 to 1 ratio as previously thought), can reverse autoimmune disorders.

Alfalfa Pills Prevent Gallstone Attacks

[YEA]  I experience terrible pain in my stomach. I research the net and found that eating fried foods, spicy dishes, pizza and etc. I have gallstones and never knew. It started at about 3-4 am in the morning with eating those dishes I listed above. I start the pain in stomach, nausea, and feelings of constipation. I would first throw up and the nausea passed. When this ended I would finally be able to go back to sleep. I would have to be at work at 7am and extremely tired.

Finally I discovered Alfalfa pills, no particular store brand but they worked!!! 2-1300 mg pills in the afternoon before eating the above listed foods. No more attacks!!
