[YEA]  Well, after reading for hours, I decided what the heck, I'll try it. I am 53, get alot of bloating after eating, have toe nail fungus-all 10, probaly athletes feet, sore joints-almost all of them, a pounding headache the other day, which thank god I seldom get. Swelling in the left ankle and calf. I did just a bit less than 1/8 teaspoon, into a glass of almond milk. Drank in down slowly while watching tv. That was wednesday nite, didnt take any thursday, and today {Friday}when I went to get groceries, walking down the aisle, all of a sudden I noticed my hips didnt hurt at all as usual. I also did Borax and water to soak my feet while watching tv. Tonite I will repeat the process, this time rubbing the borax in over my feet after soaking them, and getting around the nail beds better with a small brush. I feel sure that sooner or later this or one of these homemade cures will work, so far my hips are much happier. I've done all the store otc for the feet problem-nothing worked. I continue to read exstensively on this Borax subject.

This is for Dcjc364 from Skowhegan, Maine. Hi. I am wondering if the soaking and rubbing the Borax on your feet helped with the fungus? Was there any burning or itching, or was there relief from the itching? How many times did you apply it?

Thank you for your time for posting what you did post already and I hope you post an update.

[YEA]  I am a 48 years old female in relative good health except for chronic pain due to repetitive stress injuries. I have been taking D Sodium Tetra Borate now pretty much daily since June when I found out the organic farmers in Haway were supplementing all living things to protect from radiation. I pretty much eyeball an 8 of a teaspoon using the handle of a spoon or a fork as a shovel, anyway this to say that therefore it's been now 3 months and I have absolutely no complaints. Immediately I started feeling better. I find the tap water * no fluoride where I am * tastes better with borax and is easier to drink. I quit for 3 days once and I swear my chronic pain got a lot worse. My lungs have never been happier and my sinusitis is gone. Seriously I feel it's doing me a great deal of good. The first day I took it sure I was a bit light headed and kind of sleepy but nothing unpleasant or anything and after the first week it no longer happened.

I am one of those people super sensitive to chemicals, I can't even take more than 400 mg of Ibuprofen in a given day, and cannot take it for more than 2 days without severe intestinal complications, same goes for a lot of what doctors prescribe, in fact I had to switch to making my own colloidal silver because antibiotics were just totally disrupting my body, I haven't touched an antibiotic since 1998. I also occasionally make chlorine dioxide for internal use * sodium chlorite mixed with citric acid = Cl2O * and can tolerate it also well :) hope this helps... do not dwell in hypochondria, seriously how can you trust people who condone things like Artane, Risperidol and Prozac to name a few??? and allow the sale of hydrogenated oils and fats for human consumption not that it would be ok to give it to animals...

Anyway, I will continue my experiment and listen to my body, because my body tells me everything, so if the situation changes I will come and update, I would like to find more info on the rate of elimination for example.

[YEA]  I think borax (drinking and external use) is the answer for all my skin problems.

ringworms, moles, seborreic dermatitis scalp and skin, all over, for 20 years. Losing hair, small red dots (not itch under skin I only can get a rid pinching with a needle and blood come out) if I dont pinch it with the time become a mole when is raise or frecke when is flat.

I tried ACV, Ammonia, Bleach, Sea salt, Magnesium, H2O2 3%, Castor oil, Sulfur soap 10%, Salysilic Acid 5%, GFS, Essentials Oils.. with not luck.

A week ago I found the Borax and started to drink, take bath, wash my hair, and spray a borax solution in my body and face a few time a day. Burn a lot the first 3 days, the skin get red and dries but after 3 days you can scrub with same borax and death skin peel.

Moles getting smaller, ringworms drying and peeling, hair and scalp, clean and new hair growing, red dots, drying and small, every part of my body is better.

The burning heat , itch and purple skin I had when I walk I did not feel yesterday. So glad this fungus is going away, still taking GFS and next week will start Oregano oil internaly.

Just want to Bless Ted and thanks my favorite web site EC

[YEA]  I started using apple cider vinegar (approx 1-2 tablespoon) with baking soda (1 teaspoon) in 750ml of water, and 1/8 teaspoon in borax every morning, and the same mixture again at night (without the borax). It has only been about 10days since I started doing this.

It has reduced all of my bloating, increased my energy, my stomach is almost flat again! This is something that I couldn't even achieve as a personal trainer and working out 6 days a week. I think I'm even passing some parasites (or what looks like parasites- little white things). My body is getting back to what I looked like as a teenager. Its amazing!

Also it is keeping by bm's 'regular', which has been an issue for me in the past.

I have not changed my diet at all, but I now no longer take sugar in my coffee, as I don't like the sweet taste (since starting the remedy). Also I'm not hungry all the time like I used to be!

Thanks goodness for Earth Clinic!

Hello Victoria,

I was so excited to read your post. I am about to start the same protocol you outlined in Jan. I wanted to know a few things if you have a minute. 1) did you have any side effects 2) do you still feel great today and 3) did you change your diet in a significant way. Glad to hear you no longer want sweets. I avoid them but still crave them. Thanks for your help. Kelly

I would appreciate any comments on this. I am a 50 year old women that is estrogen dominant and have candida. I am 30 pounds over weight, that will not budge. I also suspect low thyroid, as my basal temperature is in the low 95 degree range in the mornings. I have been taking the ACV with baking soda and 1/8 teaspoon borax daily for a week now, I was previously just taking the ACV and baking soda. I have had a slight headache, which is unusual for me. I have been feeling great with a lot of extra energy and a much more positive attitude and outlook on life. The most exciting part is that I am losing about 4 ounces in body weight each day. I was hoping someone could comment on this. I will continue this routine, as I think it will greatly improve my health.

Thank you for your comment. I guess I am just wondering if the rapid weight loss is from the borax. I am down 4 pounds in a week from my previous low weight. (weight varies a couple pounds a month due to cycle.) I have lost 1 inch on my stomach and 1/2 inch on my hips. Previously, my weight would not budge. Additionally, I have no more soreness on the sides of my thighs or breasts. (A sign of estrogen dominance.) I guess I am just wondering if the rapid weight loss is from the borax? Killing the candida, lowering my ph, balancing my hormones, or all of the above. I really haven't read anyone say anything like this before. Also, I really can't figure out exactly how much boron is in 1/8 teaspoon borax. If someone could tell me, I would appreciate it.

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  Ailments: Fibroid, eczema and Meningioma (brain tumor)

Remedy: Blackstrap Molasses and Borax Cures

Do they work? Maybe

I have had eczema occassionally for years. I'm not sure of the cause. My dermatologist used to prescribe elocon cream; however, this is no longer on the rx formulary for my health plan and too expensive to purchase without insurance. I began putting 1/4 teaspoon of borax (laundry soap) in 1 liter of water and drinking this while at work. I'm not a water drinker so I rarely finish the whole bottle and don't do it consistently (4 days on and 3 days off) as Ted recommended. Despite this, the eczema seems to be improving substantially. It is no longer itchy and seems to be fading away after about 6 weeks.

I was diagnosed with uterine fibroid tumors in January 2003 and have been avoiding surgery. In 2006, a reproductive endocrinologist advised me that the fibroids had expanded my uterus to the size of someone who was 6 months pregnant. He scheduled me for a myeomectomy (abdominal versus vaginal) which I later cancelled. I wasn't comfortable with the doctor nor did I want to spend 2 months recovering. In 2007, I was also diagnosed with a meningioma on my right optic nerve close to where it intersects with the left optic nerve. Because of the location surgery wasn't possible so I did the recommended 6 weeks of Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy. This apparently has stopped the tumor growth but triggered a whole host of other problems (loss of taste sensation, more eczema, hair loss, exhaustion, black spots on my tongue, etc., etc) which is what led me to the earthclinic.com website.

Thanks to Ted and the other contributors to this site, I have found out that my body is acidic (5.9ph) which might explain why I had such a bad reaction to the radiation. In the meantime, I have been trying a few of the remedies with enough success to make me realize that modern medicine isn't always best for every health condition.

I have been taking Blackstrap Molasses since I first stumbled on the website about 5 months ago along with ACV and Baking Soda. I'm not very good at taking them daily since I forget, I have increased my intake of vitamins and supplements. I take a multi-vitamin (after breakfast of instant oatmeal) every workday with the ACV/BS in glass of water(before eating). My GYN prescribed Ponstal to contol the unbelievable bleading during my periods which come about every 21-24 days from the onset of one. I'm still in the phase where I only have about 5 days a month with no bleeding or discharge but I think this is improving. I went through some sort of healing crisis last November and thought I might have to be rushed to the hospital due to the uncontrollable bleeding but since then it has improved. The Ponstal must be taken with food every 6 hours so I generally do that for the first 4 days of every period. In addition, I take about 1-2 tablespoons of BSM in the morning before work and 1 after dinner at night while I'm taking the Ponstal. I seems to be reducing the bleeding and shortening my heavy flow days from 7 to about 4. It is difficult for me to say for sure that the BSM is the reason for my improvement since I'm doing a lot of cures at once. I'm also taking a garlic tincture that someone made for me which is supposed to help dissolve the fibroids (this is garlic cloves with vodka which sits refrigerated for 2-3 weeks, drained and then taken orally with a dropper). I also don't take that consistently either. You are supposed to take 25 drops 3 times a day (after the 1st month where the # of drops vary). I generally only take it in the morning and occassionally at night. To avoid smelling like garlic all day, I brush my teeth with baking soda, hydrogen peroxide and floride-free toothpaste, then drink water with a teaspoon of chlorophyl. I ususally do this every morning before work but have reached the point where it seems to give me gas later on during the day so I'm currently taking a break from the garlic tincture (2 weeks so far) until my stomach can handle it again.

I would really like to know what Ted thinks of my remedy experiments to see if they should be modified in any way. If any of your readers have suggestions, I would appreciate those as well.

Thank you, MB

Hi Middlebunny, by what you say it could be that you have a systemic fungal infestation so besides the things you're doing perhaps you should follow an anti-candida/fungal diet. It can't hurt to try, you would know whether it's making a difference or not during the first few weeks anyway.

I've read that since garlic can kill bad bacteria it can also kill the good ones so maybe that's why you were having gas, maybe you could alternate its use with taking a good probiotic or eating a good plain yogurt every day.

Since most of the damage to our health due to fungi comes from the mycotoxins they produce I recommend that you take several grams of Vit. C and 100-150 mg. of zinc each day, these nutrients have the ability of neutralizing different types of mycotoxins. Other antioxidants, vit. D, selenium and calcium have similar activity too (taken from http://www.orthomolecular.org/library/jom/1998/articles/1998-v13n04-p244.shtml).

I'm a big fan of garlic too. I hate to taste it with out it being in amazing food. so when I take it I just crack the head of garlic and get the little cloves and swallow like pills. I can hardly taste it and it doesn't seem to give me bad breath. I've had some tremendous success with using essential oil on balancing hormones.. Just something to look into in the future. God bless your efforts, you're on the right track taking your health back into your hands.

[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.

Osteoarthritis   0  0   

Posted by Jonathan (NY, New York) on 08/11/2008

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.

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?

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!!

[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.

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.
