[YEA]  Hi, Just want to add that I use sodium tetraborate often. I am using it to successfully treat myself for candida, I use it to dilute my dishwasher powder 50%, the same with washing powder, clothes smell fresher and towels dont have to be boiled !!. I mix the powder with sodium bicarbonate and use it on my carpet several hours before hoovering and it removes the stale smeels that build up over the years, also sprikled in the bin before hte bag goes in to stop nasty smells - this works extremely well. I also use it over my body occasionally before i have a shower - My skin feels and looks healthier. What a great product.

Yes, the borax works. It kills off amobia (parasites) body-wide. For me that meant ITP (low platelets) which is fatal in older people about half the time. It means any other amobia that affects the person such as for fibro. Many people use Ted's remedy for body wide detoxification of amobia (parasites).

1/8-teaspoon (1/4-teaspoon for people over 180-pounds) borax (sodium tetraborate, sodium borate, or disodium tetraborate) into 1 liter of distilled water. Sip throughout the day. Five days a week and take two days off. No longer than 30-days. Take a break. When this water is gone drink other plain water.

Hi I believe Ted recomends 1/8 of a teaspoon to 1 liter of water of borox 20 mule team the natural laundry detergent but not every day. I am not sure how many times a week. I think may be 2 or 3 times a week He believes it works much much quicker then the supplement form for osteo arthritis. I think it has an effect in about a weeks time. I take it sometimes and it does no harm to me. I do not have arthritis so I cannot give feedback regarding it. Check out how he says to use it on the the cures for osteo arthritis on this website.

Started your remedy with Borax, h202 baking soda celtic salt...started having worms come out in my stool...white stringy... inch or so...any thoughts?

EC: We will send this to Ted for response! In the meantime, can you please tell us exactly how much of each ingredient you were taking? Thanks.

Yes - my thoughts are that since the worms are exiting, your borax concoction must be making it unpleasant for the worms and I'd keep it up until no more worms.

There is a worm called Strongloides stercorales that infests us humans that is commonly called string or thread worm, but the only ones I've seen were from urine that I was looking at under a microscope. Several of us in a little small town I was living in at that time suddenly got heavily infested with them after the municipal water supply churned up the water (looked like a combination of mud & rust) to clean out the water lines. The man at the health department I delivered one to for indentification told me was either strongloides or tape worm. When asked which he would rather have, his reply was the tape worm because it had to exit the body to reproduce and Strongloides didn't.

Yes. American mainstream meat is loaded with worms. Pests do not like the alkaline environment.

Eat organic, and you must go with long-term suppliers who show you the source and method and condition of raising and slaughter. The generic organics are put out by the industrial manufacturing; QAI is bribed, and the price is specifically designed to undercut authentic Organic Providers; putting them out of business.

Does drinking borax remedy help rid the body of ascaris/roundworms?

Posted by Guy (Escondido, California) on 05/14/2007

[YEA]  I buy clear plastic gallons of spring water. After reading Ted's explanation of sea salt being alkaline, I remembered that this is the water cure as shared by Dr. Batamanghelidj. (See watercure.com) So to a gallon of water I add one teaspoon of unrefined sea salt, several pinches of baking soda, and 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon of borax. I drink this while at my job 5 days per week. At home I drink the same mix without the borax.

This past week, there was something I noticed under my arm. A tick. I did not want to pull it out but it died and fell off in less than two days. I think it's due to the borax which I think is amazing. A tick is a parasite.

I've also been drinking ACV with molasses and mix the ACV with baking soda until it stops fizzing. I'm glad I found this site.

Pineal decalcification

Hi,
Can the borax remedy actually allow the pineal gland to start functioning again? Besides, Borax, is there anything that I need to add to get my son's pineal gland back to normal?

Thank you,
Susan

Hi Susan,

A pinch of Nutmeg in a glass of water everyday should help also. But no more than a pinch, too much can make you sick.

Borax is to clean out. What I suggest is the use of iodine to get the pineal gland decalcified.

Psoriasis   1  0   

Posted by Ally (Jerusalem, Israel) on 11/29/2011

Dear Earth Clinic,

First off let me say how wonderful this site is -- thank you! I have scleroderma and have been helped tremendously by Ted's advice here, H202 taken orally and also inhalation methods have done wonders for me.

I also have psoriasis, and started borax at 1/8 tsp in 1 liter of water per day. After day 9, today, I still have absolutely no reaction to the borax, neither positive nor negative.

I was wondering if this is normal? Is the dosage too low?

Thank you for your help!!

Ally, your Borax dosage is just right. Make sure you take it 4 days on 3 days off. Not everybody has symptoms with borax. Cheers Lily.

Hi Lily,

Thanks so much for your response. I am just wondering what it means if it doesn't work for psoriasis -- do I need to increase the dosage? When should I begin to see an effect?

Thank you,

Ally

[YEA]   I've been using 20 Mule Team Borax for a week now with 500mg of Magnesium and I'm almost fully psoriasis free. Dose 1 tsp of Borax in one liter of water to make a concentrate. Then take only 2 tsp of the concentrate and mix it into a glass of water. Drink that with food. I do it at breakfast. Be sure to take a 500 mg magnesium pill with it also, or the Borax WILL NOT activate. Borax alone will do nothing for psoriasis. You have to have the magnesium with it. Hope this works better for you. It's working for me. I'm actually stunned that I've had this stupid psoriasis all these years and it was such a simple fix. Summer time shorts here I come.

Ted~

For the past five years I have had this itchy rash/urticaria/hives that break out all over my body.I get pains in joints and swelling in my extremities.No known diagnosis and have been tested and treated with everything under the sun and nothing has worked. I beleiev I have some type of fungal or candida problem because I was taking 1 diflucan a day 200mg and 2 fiberchoice tablets and 1 culturelle probiotic pill daily for a month or so. It cleared for many months and came back after I got extremely stress form the death of a family member. I had a recent CT scan for possible pneumonia and found out I didn't have it but evidence of Granulomatous disease. I think this may be my problem.I want to try the Borax remedy.What do you think?

Diflucan (fluconazole) is loaded with fluoride. Read this link http://onibasu.com/archives/am/255637.html. You are quite likely suffering from fluoride poisoning, and need to do borax treatment. go slow.

[WORKED TEMPORARILY]  Re: the borax page. Could you update with information on the time period involved? ie how long is it safe or recommended to take the borax & h202 in water cure?

I have a sore recurring (monthly) rash on my abs and neck. When taking the borax and h202 remedy for about 6 weeks, the rash was rapidly reducing over a few months in total, to the point of thinking that it had gone. But then it came back with full force. I'll try again, but how long is safe?

With thanks.

[YEA]  I started to get skin rashes around my neck that started to spread down my trunk. Nothing work until I switched to Borax shampooing and for washing my body. With three or four days, the rash that had gotten slowly worse for a year was gone--and it has never came back. I used to mix it in water, but I've started just putting it on straight. No only is my rash gone, but it cured my dandruf and my hair is healtheir and thicker than it has been for years. I've been using it for about a year now, and I'll be using it until the day I die.

Borax in Japanese is called hosha. (Many Japanese don't know how to read the character for this, but it's HO-U in katakana and sha is the kanji for sand (suna). The cost at Amazon is 924 yen for 500 grams.

Or...you can go to http://www.tougeishop.com/item/tougei_genryou/t0804/t0804034.htm and order 1 kg for 609 yen. It seems to be the same thing, and you can use it for washing clothes, washing your hair, etc. But for consumption, probably the type from Amazon would be better. Good luck!

EC: Sorry, our database doesn't currently accept Japanese characters! Will see if we can in the future.

I am really eager to buy some borax for a fluoride detox. I live in Tokyo, Japan and I really cant find the borax that everyone is taking for detox. As far as I know it is the "20 Mule Team Borax" (safe to ingest, right?) but I just can't find it anywhere. I can order from the US but it is going to be really expensive. Can anyone help me please? I am desperate.

Hello Ted, I read your posts on borax with great interest, and have found many interesting articles on the benefits of borax substance in the human body, as well as the following articles that appear to debunk the myth that exposure can lead to infertility:

Reproductive toxicity in boron exposed workers in Bandirma, Turkey.
www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22575543

Low frequency of infertility among workers in a borate processing facility.
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12835486

I did come across two articles from Thammasat University that I wanted to get your feedback on:

Effect of borax on immune cell proliferation and sister chromatid exchange in human chromosomes
www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2776007/

Genotoxic effects of borax on cultured lymphocytes.
www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19323026

On the flip side, other studies have shown that borax guards against genetic damage in human lymphocytes:

In vitro studies on chemoprotective effect of borax against aflatoxin B1-induced genetic damage in human lymphocytes.
www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22526492

Boron compounds reduce vanadium tetraoxide genotoxicity in human lymphocytes.
www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21791386

I would imagine that if boron leads to genotoxic effects, then birth defects or negative health consequences would have been noted in the studies listed above on occupational exposure and fertility.

I am curious on what you might have to say about the fact that genetic alterations and apoptosis have been observed in the very same cells that borax has been shown to exert protective effects.

You have cited published medical research strictly controlled and approved by AMA and FDA guidelines and acceptance. Let not this define your perception regarding the efficacy and safety of Boron.

In many cases the funding for such provided studies should be a considering factor regarding the integrity of these journals. Also, most importantly a detailed history regarding the medical and medicinal use of boran should be researched over a longer period of time, for example, past 100 years before the strong hold of the current cartel of medicine.

This website is evidence that modern medicine is not working and many paradigms are not as they seem.

Perhaps such a conspiracy you mention exists, but if it were as pervasive as you suggest, then no articles would be listed on PubMed in support of using borax. In addition, all of the articles I cited originated either from Turkey, Rome, or Thailand, in which case the FDA does not apply.

The research I cited is both supportive and critical of the use of borax/boron. In fact, the articles from Thailand were the only ones I could find to support the notion of "genotoxity. " In addition, the genetic and apoptotic effects observed in Thailand are inferred by its authors to be potentially pathological, whereas such genetic alterations might have a neutral or even positive effect on the individual's immune system. That said, the authors in Thailand provide microscopic images of these effects, and therefore it is difficult to dispute. I take these findings with a grain of salt until such studies can be replicated in a different lab. I also question the toxicity of this substance, since various studies have shown no documented ill effects in borate miners who are constantly exposed to these substances. There do appear to be cases where boron exposure causes spontaneous hair loss and skin eruptions, but this could be due to allergies or various systemic physiological imbalances, such as vitamin/mineral deficiences.

Here are two more articles in support of using borax medicinally:

Borax counteracts genotoxicity of aluminum in rat liver.
www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22491726

Preparation and characterization of antimicrobial wound dressings based on silver, gellan, PVA and borax.
www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22939352

Borax used to be prescribed medicinally in the United States, and in fact I found this image of a medicine bottle from 1920:

http://archive.org/details/Borax

Not many articles are listed on Pubmed on this topic prior to 1950, however there was one article from 1902 that described (in great detail) the results of the administration of borax and boric acid in children:

ON THE INFLUENCE OF BORIC ACID AND BORAX
UPON THE GENERAL METABOLISM OF CHILDREN.
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2235950/pdf/jhyg00321-0017.pdf

I will follow this post with an exhaustive review of the literature on borax for anyone who is interested.

No, not an intentional conspiracy but rather, only formulated substances that can be patented tend to receive funding for clinical trials. The conspiracy is not against Boron but only to maximize profitability for a drug producing and manufacturing company with patentable substances.

And yes, there are published journals for the use of Boron. Most if not all of the medical journals documenting the use of Boron and other natural substances like olive leaf extract, lavender oil are studied by scientists, research physicians and universities but then never make it to mass clinical trials, never officially written into pharmacopeia as effective standard treatments.

Don't let medical Journals dictate 100% of your beliefs. Many doctors I have spoke with even know to be cautious with citing these journals.

With that said, they are useful as published data can show that the substance studied has shown safe and effective in small scale testing or may be supported by other journals also published giving confidence in the substance.

If any medical research centre decided to, it could publish a study saying "table salt toxicity in mice" - and so people would start getting scared of table salt thinking it was now a 'toxic' substance!

The heading is designed to get attention only. Read the article and you would discover that the salt levels used in the 'research' were high (for mice). That's what these researchers do. They keep increasing the dose until there is a reaction, then publish the results to show they have discovered something.

Simple 'toxicity' is not the issue.

Many natural chemical substances are toxic at high doses. Salt and borax are no different to hundreds of other substances. Abusing/exceeding the accepted or therapeutic dose can do harm but at the normal dose great benefits can be obtained.

Rheumatoid Arthritis   0  0   

Posted by Rain Ra (San Francisco, California, Usa) on 04/03/2011

Anyone who has used Borax for Rheumatoid arthritis would you answer a quesiton. It is my understanding that using Borax will rid your body of fungus that causes the RA. It will cure RA. Once the Borax has worked which from what I've read takes just a couple of weeks or less, how long do you continue taking it? Do I need to continue taking every month, week, day or what?

Thank you, Rain

Ringworm   1  0   

Posted by Smith (San Francisco, California, Usa) on 10/08/2009

[YEA]  A year ago I came to this site to find a remedy for ringworm. I had gone through an number of over the counter products, which seemed to spread the fungus instead of stopping it. It had developed because of taking prescription medication with fluoride base. Yes I was poisoning myself with a doctor's help.

I tried Apple Cider Vinegar, hydrogen peroxide and urine to no avail. By the time I found Borax at WalMart, the fungus had spread all over my hands and I had begun to worry that I would be spreading it everywhere on my body. Plus my hands were cracked and bleeding, blistering and peeling, and the itching was endless.

So I started on Ted's recommended dose of 1/8 tsp in a liter of water and drank it slowly over a few hours. This worked within the first few days so well that I didn't want to stop after a few days to take a break, but I did. Within a months time the ringworm had completely vanished and the only thing left was the tiny pits in my fingernails where the fungus had affected the growth of the new nail.

Once my nails were not pitted anymore I stopped taking the borax supplement.

Hey you're so right, as a mechanic I was hurt by the same fungus-tinia manus, got it from fungus that grows in oil or diesel, borax rids the problem and also a mold antibiotic-griseofulvin or fulvicin also will eat the fungus for 90 days, that took care of my problem, so was wondering what other common ailments are easily cured that you know of, thanks, dave s

Rosacea   1  0   

Posted by Pluto (New York, Ny, Usa) on 06/01/2011

Hello! I was wondering if I could put my 4x per-week, daily dose of Borax into capules (I take 1/8 teaspoon) and swallow them thus, because putting the 1/8 (a woman's amount) into water makes the water taste soapy and unpalatable. I am using the Borax for rosacea - demodex extermination. Thank you!

No, No...... Borax is to be taken diluted and NEVER in concentrated form, as it will damage liver and kidneys. If the taste is unpleaseant ad apple juice or other juice.

Thank you, Lily, what a brilliant idea -- flavor it! I figure just the tiniest bit of flavor will go a long way, just to get the soapy edge off.

I have done two things for rosacea. One is I put some colloidal silver on the affected areas. Mine went into my eyes (occular rosasia) therefore I put a drop into each eye and it did cure it. However, the thing I have done the most is to take a warm/hot soaky bath in the tub. Depending on the size of your tub put in from 1/2 to 2 cups Epsom salts and 1/4 cup baking soda. Soak from 20 to 30 minutes 3 times a week. Take a face cloth and rub the water everywhere especially on the affected areas. It killed everything wrong with my skin including athlete's foot and scaley skin. It took all the arthritis discomfort all over my body including my feet. My skin is so nice. People are guessing me to be around 15 years younger than I actually am.

In regards to facial demodex mites: I would like to know if the borax/hydrogen peroxide mixture is to be left on the face overnight and for how many days should I continue the internal and external applications? Also how often for maintenance?
