  Is Borax Safe to Consume?
Mon, 14 Apr 14 11:39:40 -0500

04/14/2014: Bill from San Fernando, Philippine: "Hi Sean...The dosage of Borax that Walter Last recommends is much less than what Ted from Bangkok recommends on this site. Ted recommends taking an 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon of Borax mixed in a liter of water. You should drink this water throughout the day -- the whole liter of this water/borax -- for five days a week. This means your supplementing 500 mgs to 1000 mgs a day using Ted's borax remedy.

From his book Overcoming Candida, Walter Last recommends one teaspoon of borax(5 gms to 6 gms borax) in a liter of water. Then add just one teaspoon of this borax water to a drink and take it once a day. Walter Last also specifies a max dose of 100 mgs borax a day. So this dose is therefore far less than Ted's dose of 500 mgs to 1000 mgs of borax supplemented with a liter of water every day.

Dr Rex Newham took borax twice a day to successfully cure his own case of severe arthritis. His dosage was only 30 mgs borax twice a day. See this link for his research.

I've been taking borax at Ted's higher dosage(1000 mgs a day) regularly for over 8 years with no side effects. If you look up the MSDS on Borax -- you'll find that it has similar toxicity to ordinary table salt(sodium chloride) for rats. I supplement borax to kill fungus and mycoplasma as well as for its great ability to get rid of fluoride from the body.

04/13/2014: Dev from 0: "Anyone who needs expensive dental treatment should really really consider flying to thailand and getting it done at their private after hours dental hospitals. The treatment plus the flights, plus the hotels, excursions, scooter hire, and go go bars, will still save you a small fortune!! Khanom in southern Thailand, I found a hospital that does big fillings for 10, root canal for 90, and implants for as little as 250. If you are interested, drop me an email @ deveroxx1@gmail.com Keep smiling :)"

Re: Magnesium Oil Helped Libido
Sun, 13 Apr 14 20:38:17 -0500

04/13/2014: Jo from 0: "Lost libido, ability to have orgasm, and natural lubrication (and inability to lose weight, zero energy, focus, etc, etc) in '94 following mastectomy and chemo. Multitude of drs no help. During hospitalization for pancreatitis in Feb. '13 (20 days), I got b 12 injections for 7 days. Drs later decided I wasn't really deficient, but within days, I had surge of libido. Over next 6 months lost 50 lbs, rediscovered muscle and concentration, etc. Effect started dropping off. Taking oral 5000 mcg but weight loss hasn't picked up. Just started using patch. Libido is improving again. Orgasm too. Following paleo diet (stopped chronic sinusitis and psoriasis). Using many supplements recommended here including mg (great for restless legs but no effect on libido), maca , vit d, vco, Apple Cider Vinegar and more. They helped with many things but not libido. Will continue experimenting. Definitely feel b 12 caused my turn around. Wish my various drs were less hidebound. Shame to spend 20 years begging for help and one simple blood test revealed it."

Re: Sodium Bentonite Clay
Tue, 08 Apr 14 17:04:56 -0500

04/08/2014: Ron from 0: "At last I can finally say I have cured my a fib. I had tried every thing there was to cure it in the past and nothing worked. I had all day everyday 24 hour a fib. It was worse at night when I would wake up with my heart racing, or when I laid down to sleep I heard the thumping in my ear drum. For all that are serious about a cure, the vitamins, are useless, the juicing helps, all other supplements do not make a dent in the problem. The cure I found was to remove toxic acids from the body, mostly from the colon. The best way to do that is with sodium bentonite clay. I try to take 5 tablespoons each day but it is not easy to do at at times it can be contipating but the body rids itself of acids and toxins with good healthy large bowel movements. It will take time, mine was 6 months before noticeable improvement, and for some 6 months to 2 years and it should be continued for as long you want to keep the body clean and toxin free. Also with the bentonite it is vital to take probiotics. Healing begins in the colon and healing is a longer process than what many want but we did not get Afib overnight and will not cure it overnight. I have suggested this to others on other websites but they say I did not cure myself and that I am wrong yet they still suffer. I suspect there may be others that say the same here, but for those that want relief, do it and you will be cured as I am."

  How to Conquer the Swallowing Urge?
Thu, 20 Mar 14 22:52:55 -0500

03/20/2014: Sherri from Idaho: "Just started myself. I find if I put a paper towel in a glass and keep it handy I relax and know that in an "emergency" I can spit the oil out and start over. The only problems so far is one time I had a need to sneeze and another time a need to cough due to tickle in throat. (The paper towel is to catch drips, if any) and also can be neatly put in trash after."

  Op Before or After Brushing Teeth?
Thu, 20 Mar 14 22:52:34 -0500

03/20/2014: Sherri from Idaho: "I guess I'm still nervous due to the fact I have implants. It's quite amazing that the oil could be that potent, but I have had health issues, so want to understand. I have controlled infections in my mouth effectively with grapefruit seed extract. Since I started oil pulling I put three drops on tooth brush and sprinkle a little pure salt on it as well before brushing. This is after I oil pull. Any problems with that? My mouth feels really clean. Also, several have said they're using olive oil. Before I found this site, I read that's not helpful. The Ayurveda sites say sesame or sun flower oil. Others say coconut oil. I've been using that because I have it and it has been helping me with other things. Which oil is really best?"

  Can Oil Pulling Be Done by Children?
Wed, 19 Mar 14 15:09:45 -0500

03/19/2014: Cking from Oklahoma: "Yes, it can definitely be done by children. My daughter started oil pulling when she was 7 and she loves the flavor of the sesame oil that we use and sometimes even asks if she can oil pull. She doesn't do it everyday as I do but multiple times a week. The only issue she has is when she has to rinse with the baking soda and salt water but she still manages."

Thanks, Mary

' order by ModifiedDate desc limit 1 -->03/11/2014: Mary from Saskatchewan, Canada: "Hi Susan from San Francisco: I am so glad for you got rid of this nightmare. I am going through it myself. I am wondering a few things. Firstly, how much borax went into the 1/4 cup water, 3/4 cup apple cider vinegar? Also did you use the good organic vinegar? Or just the grocery store stuff? Did you leave the ACV water borax on your skin or did you rinse it off. It looks like you did not rinse. Did it hurt.

Thanks, Mary"
