I read your question and I know it has been months since you asked but I hope this helps you for the future and I pray all is well http://www.earthclinic.com/cures/pneumonia_questions.html. This link mentions borax as part of a remedy for this.

My question is to see if anyone has experience with using Borax on their toddler. My sweet daughter has the most severe case of fluorosis. Her top 4 front teeth are decayed to the gumline. I believe from my ignorant taking of paxil for 15 years up until her 5th week of gestation. Sincerely, Julia

[YEA]  Two of my kids have 'tried' to come down with colds during the last two weeks. When my son's hit, he was coughing so hard he was nearly vomiting. My daughter woke up coughing, a very sore throat and her voice was almost gone. Usually I have them do the inhaling of peroxide a few times a day and give them at least 1/4 cup of organic vinegar with 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper, a little cinnamon and water each day. This time I added Borax water (1/8 teaspoon to 1 liter of water) to the mix-and their colds were gone in less than 12 hours. No one was more stunned than I was that it worked so fast! But I shouldn't have been surprised. I have had painful joints from fibromyalgia for years, but sometimes the pain in my right shoulder is almost unbearable (I'm right-handed). The last flare had been going on about 2 months and I was getting very little sleep, which was what spurred my finally giving in and trying the Borax. Within three days the severe pain was gone and I was back to just the normal pain! Now I just need to make myself drink it EVERY day and maybe all the pain will go away.

But, back to the original subject, everyone says there is no cure for the common cold. After what we saw earlier this month, I have to disagree!

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  borax/dermodex mites

Hello, im new to all this but im so glad i found this site. I found it through searchs at curezone.com i knew i was dealin with nanoinsects and iv been using the exact measurements of borax and alittle Hydrogen Peroxide with a liter of water that Ted says to do. Iv been on it for about 5 days now and many many of the dermodex mites came to the surface of my skin. Its really gross, its all over my arms, shoulders and back. All over my stomach and legs. I dont know how i got it but i know i had it for many years since iv suffered from eczema all my life, im 27 yrs old now.

I really hope this stuff works quickly because as of right now i dont even want to go to the store. I got long sleeves but its really bad. I took a few baths with borax and i know its working. I always wanted to get to the source of the problem and attack it but i never found out how till now. No matter how long it takes i hope to be cleansed of all these nasty bugs. I also wanted to write and thank you for leading people to the truth and what most doctors wont tell us. So thank you from the bottom of my heart.

sincerly,
nick

I wanted to give an update. Back then when I did that cleanse I had the bad reaction and stopped because I was in alot of pain. I know now that I was so close, I should of kept with it. But now 4 years later I am doing the cleanse again and have been for the last week or so. I have been going by the guidelines of what Ted has said to do: 1/4 teaspoon in one liter of water and taking the 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda with a cup of water 2 times a day. I'm also adding the borox to my shampoo and body wash. One thing that happened sometime after I stopped the cleanse back in 2010, I had to get cataract surgery. I don't know if it was because it was from drinking the borax or I might of got it in my eyes when used the saturated solution on my face. I will be more careful this time. I notice when I do the borox cleanse my eyes feel itchy and watery. Hopefully things will be okay with my eyes while doing the cleanse. As for my skin, I know it's gonna get bad before it's gets better. I'm glad to have found this site and remedy because I always wanted to get at the root cause and not just treat the symptoms.

I will be going to Cuba in the near future. I have just started Borax - less than 1/8 tsp in a litre of water. Can I add Borax to it because coconut water is all I am going to be drinking when I am there for a week?

Thank you. Sherry

In order for Borax to be effective it needs magnesium so I would take it with a little magnesium if your body tends to be deficient in it.

Ahhhhh!!! I am sooo confused.. I just started making my own dishwasher detergent with Borax (Mule Team) and Arm & Hammer Washing Soda, and was about to make a batch of Laundry detergent using the same ingredients, Now I read that I should not be using Borax ( especially in Dishwasher ) because it could be leeching into my dishes therefore my food and making us sick... Can someone PLEASE calm my fears? Or at least tell me the real truth? Trying to be green and healthy as well as save money.

Also, if Bleach was accidently mixed with a detergent that I didn't know had ammonia in it, (another homemade cleaner),could it have damaged my or whomever used it lungs, and would the symptoms show immediately? Daughter has been sick for a month with lung issues, and now I am thinking back to that homemade bathroom cleaner, she does have allergies, and it is that season at our house, dust, pets, pollens etc.. So maybe I am just panicking...

Borax isn't toxic on your dishes even if there's an invisible film. You can take it internally for many health benefits.

Posted by Piper (Toronto, On) on 09/05/2010

[YEA]  Add a tbsp to dishwasher and cut amount of soap in half. Best clean ever. Clear glasses. Also seems to eliminate the crud that sticks to dishes. Can also use baking soda. Now I use 1/2 borax and 1/2 baking soda mix.

[SIDE EFFECTS]  Hi everyone,

I have to say this site is very enlightening! I have been using Borax 20 team Mule for about 8 weeks now. Dosage 1/4 tsp in a pint of distilled water with 7 drops of Lugol's iodine and a splash of apple cider vinegar. Consumed each day.

Right now I am in a lot of pain, actually I am finding it hard to write, otherwise I would be far more polite.

I am 52 going on 53, male. 6'2", weigh about 90kg, I don't carry a lot of fat. Around 3 years ago I started to experience a lot of pain around my joints, shoulders and back.

I am a landscape gardener and sometimes the work is extremely physically labour intensive as I do a lot of garden construction. I live in London and a lot of the gardens are inaccessable to machines, diggers and the like, so it's all by hand.

I have noticed that after a hard day at the office that the morning after my body feels like its on fire and the pain is everywhere. My body is also very stiff all over and takes about 2 hours to limber up. I am inclined to believe that I have fibromyalgia like symptoms.

Since taking Borax I have noticed improvements in finger joints, knees and elbows. They feel stronger and less sensitive.

Right now though I have developed extreme pain in my right hip and I think it is the joint itself, also my right leg is numb along its length. I am not able to walk more than a few steps as the pain is unbearable. I have also developed a chest infection which seems to be clearing somewhat but this morning I was coughing up a disgusting green sputum.

Over the last 2 months or so I have been working hard on my house in preparation to sell it and move lock stock and barrel's to South West France where we own a very old farm which needs restoring from top to bottom. Part of my prep has been to try and rid myself of these physical ailments so that I will be fit and healthy for the work ahead which is considerable.

I have never had problems in my hips and if this problem persists then I will be fit for nothing. I have 2 sons aged 15 and 7 and we had daughter last September so you see I need all my strength most importantly for them and the wife. I think I might have overdosed on the Borax.

Any advice would be much appreciated. Kind regards, Julian

Julian, I suspect that when we are generally low in vitamins and minerals, it is possible that supplementation can exacerbate other deficiencies.

Going on this premise, you might want to look into the vitamins that tend to be depleted by boron--possibly vit d, calcium and especially magnesium. High vitamin A may help with the lung infection issue.

Dear Pinch, I am sorry you are in such pain and I have not used Borax. We share a background in hard horticultural work, however, and I am going to throw out a few things that have stopped the pain that used to wake me up in the night. My pain was in my hands, neck, and ankles and, after doing a lot of reading, I found help through simple changes. I did drink a tea made from vinegar for a while, but later amended my diet to keep my body alkalized. I started drinking a lot more unflouridated water and stopped most alcohol, all flour, sweets, and dairy. These last 4 are common sources of inflamation. I don't know about you, but some of the joints that were painful actually looked reddish each morning. Now my joints are the same color as the skin around them and I rarely feel morning stiffness. In fact, your letter reminded me that I hadn't given stiffness a thought in many months. The thing about this site is that one never knows what things have already been tried, but perhaps you may find something useful here. Good luck to you.

Pinch, If I may add another comment, I just remembered another change I made that helped joint pain and stiffness. It was just the simple taking of a couple of calcium capsules per day. Now I have switched to drinking homemade bone broth instead. My feeling is that you had damaged joints and now have fibromyalgia as well.

[BETTER BUT WITH SIDE EFFECTS]   Many thanks for taking the time to reply to my post Nanowriter and Iowama. I have also written a couple of emails to Ted but so far no reply, which is not suprising considering his difficulties.

I have done a lot of reading on Borax and in 1 article found on the internet somewhere it stated that Borax can bring on a Herxheimer reaction resulting in stiffness and pain in the shoulders in hips accompanied by numbness in hands and feet.

This indeed happened to me in a big way, first in the shoulders which subsided after a few days. Sometime later I noticed similar side effects in my right leg and then my hip which became excruciatingly painful and the pain extended down to my right knee. These areas are still very painful but it is beginning to lessen. I think I am having a Herxheimer reaction. I have always been an avid brusher of teeth using fluoridated toothpaste and I am convinced that this is part of the reason for my plight. I also discovered that it is possible that I am being decalcified. Apparently the sciatic nerve can be severely calcified from fluoride and the decalcification process is not on the list of great ways to have a good time. These articles go on to say that the Herxheimer reaction is a sign of healing and not to give up, so I have kept going. 10 weeks into it now.

I know that throughout my life I have subjected my body to gruelling feats of endurance as this my OTTP nature. You always pay the price somewhere down the line but hopefully it is not to late to put things right and also learn a bit of moderation.

I am now alkalising with Bicarb and also taking high doses of ascorbate acid, epsom salts in baths and internally. The baths are wonderful!

I have a big "L" plate on my back in regards to alternative remedies but I am a firm believer that God has provided everthing we need in nature for healing. The problem it seems is that we systematically consume food that is not beneficial to health and that medical science loves a sick population to maximise their profits. "For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil." History provides all the evidence we need of this sad fact.

Many thanks again and good health to you always! Julian

I don't think you overdosed but I read that for persons with RA they often get worse before they get better. Hang in there or reduce your dose if you feel you must but I think in a few weeks you will find that there will be improvement. Research the herxheimer reaction possible with borax. Read about it at http://www.health-science-spirit.com/borax.htm

Hi my name is David.

I feel rather stupid about this. I have been reading a lot about borax for some of my ailments. Long story short, I have got a little mixed up with the rates. I have just taken a quarter of a teaspoon in 600ml of water. I now realise this may be way too much. I worried it will have some adverse affect. please help

I read on here some weeks ago that the quantity is the very tip of your finger in 1 litre of water, so about 15 grains of the stuff per 1000 mils.

As for your mixture..I would drink a lot of water about 3 litres, over the next couple of days then make a new batch, and when it does not taste soapy, you know you have it about right.

Now, I too am in Australia and wanted to ask you what borax you are using? This is because Hovex is no longer available anywhere around here, only the brand, Bare Essentials.

Hey again. Thanks for replying. I bought the bare essentials borax from Coles for bout 5 dollars. I read the msd sheet and it said it had no added fragrances. So I assumed this was fine????.I also feel totally fine a day after so I'm not so worried now.

Dear David,

I think Ted's recommended dosage of borax for men is 1/4 teaspoon in a liter of water per day. 5 days a week. So you were not way off base. You might drink more water to dilute it further.

My husband takes borax five days a week. If he takes too much it gives him digestive distress. But it doesn't last too long. I would encourage you not to worry.

I read it was a quarter of a teaspoon in a litre of water. That makes your solution. Then you on take one or two teaspoons of that litre solution per day. Can someone clarify if this is correct??

EC: Hi David,

Many people on EC have reported trying Ted's borax protocol, as follows:

Men: 1/4 teaspoon in a liter of filtered water. Sip on the borax water throughout the day until the liter is finished. Next day, prepare another liter. 5 days on, 2 days off.

Women - 1/8 teaspoon in a liter of filtered water. Same instructions as above.

Drink plenty of water without borax during the day as well.

Hi David& Jenn, We have been using the bare essensials brand for a while now. I think it may be the only one available now in the suppermarkets. Harpers is not available any more here in Vic. At least l cant find it now. A mistake was made when I was very ill and I took aprox 1.5 tsp (yes more than 1 but less than 2 tsp with no ill effects. No matter how sick I am I have never made this mistake again. It is interesting to look at the msds of borax & the msds of sodium chloride (salt) and see how safe borax really is. Although as mama to many said digestion can be temporarily upset & I would assume hormones would be effected with larger doses.

To Dave.... Re Borax:

Harpers and Hovex seem to be discontinued in many places in Australia unless there is old stock..As it doesn't go off in the traditional sense of the word, should you be able to access any of this it would still be ok to use.

I recently bought some Borax at our local Coles Supermarket, namely Bare Essentials...but I haven't used this yet... so hope this helps.

[SIDE EFFECTS]   Hi,

After checking one of the other links about the effect on Candida, I now understand why this body is feeling currently worse. The mucus, pain in hand and finger joints, spinal stenosis symptoms of pinched nerves affecting neck, eyes, nose, ears, arms, skull (massive pain), depression etc. etc. - all part of the detox. I'm glad I read that as I had a feeling these are CURRENTLY detox symptoms and I'm prepared to continue until the boron in the Borax finally works, as I need a job. I'm 63. My meditation also gives relief to the pressure. Not a cure, but helps. Taking pressure off the mind takes pressure off the body.

Another place to get it in Oz is at Bunnings - same brand.

Good to read all this feedback on the effect of boron. I'm so grateful I finally discovered the info online. It gives hope.

Thank you all and I wish success - no more suffering and pain to you all.

Hallo there,

I am interested in using borax to heal myself. I am not sure about the dosage you recommend. I saw people saying here on website 1/4 or 1/8 teaspoon in one litre of water. That's clear.

What I need to know is if that one litre of water I am gonna be having for one day only, meaning every day new litre with new1/8 tsp or for the whole five days. (then two days off) .

Plus I'd like to know what supplements I need to take and how much to heat up the water when mixing it with borax.

I try to find the answer on your website but didn't see it.

Thank you.

Regards, Erik

Erik: As a replacement for the oral route, I instead use 1/4 cup Borax in a whole body hot bath w/ also 1/4 cup Epsom Salt and 1/4 cup Baking Soda. This is a good bit of Sodium so one would be wise to also take a Potassium supplement or drink up on the Apple Juice.

Fibromyalgia   1  0   

Posted by Denise (Biloxi, Mississippi ) on 05/25/2009

[YEA]  Fibro/Flouride:

A brief history. 7 years ago thyroid cancer, the next year adrenal fatigue then early menopause, the following year uterine prolapsed followed by hysterectomy- the following year fibromyalgia and neuropathy. Early Childhood was fluorinated water along with fluoride tablets. Fall of 2008 I was looking at total disability. I could barely walk and couldn't sleep because of the pain and was throwing up daily from the pain in my back. I was on many medications that gave me no relief and I have since found out that they had fluoride as a binding agent. I was sure that my life was over at 45, but thanks to Ted and Earthclinic I am almost at 100%. After reading about fluoride I came to understand where all of my problems originated. I had all the symptoms and reactions. It has been an uphill battle with my doctors and relatives, but you can't argue with a body that is almost pain free. I began the borax detox of 1/8 tsp in a liter of water and within 3 days my symptoms were almost gone. I watch everything I eat and can detect fluoride in vitamins, foods and drinks within 15 minutes of ingesting it. I still suffer from the neuropathy and some pain from the neuropathy but I am off all meds and I have my life. I only wish more people would try to understand the fluoride connections. My sister and mother both suffer with side effects of fluoride and I have only been able to influence my mother. I still borax 5 days on and two days off and give my body a break every month or so for about a week. Thank you :)

Just wanted to ask yea if the borax helped with the neuropathy. My husband was diagnosed 2 months ago and nothing seems to help. He is up every night cant sleep and pain level on scale 1-10 is 8 or 9. He says he is starting to deal with cramping and soreness but the pains that shoot up his legs and burning of his feet he cannot stand. He lays in the floor and cries at times. He is taking gabapectin 200 mg 4 times a day and is on hydracodone. I feel helpless and would like to help find some kind of relief for him. I have him taking b12, b6, chromium picolate, and L-carintene, also magniusm. Just wondering how much borax he should try. And make sure it is safe to drink. Thanks alot!!!

I felt so sorry about your husband. I used to cry out of pain. Arthritis, stomach ache, low memory. Even painkillers didn't help me. Everything changed when I tried a coffee enema.

About 1 minute after coffee goes into my body, pain just disappeared. It worked for headache, period pain, joint pain, just about any pain.

I used for Fibro high dose of Vitamin D3 10,000IU daily with high dose Vit K2 -MK4, and very high dose of B12, within 2 weeks 80 % of my symptoms were gone, the moment I stop, they come back so it could be a deficiency in those above mentioned.

Fluoride Detoxification   1  0   

Posted by Maryann (Walla Walla) on 09/10/2013

[YEA]  I posted last August as Mary Margaret. I suffered desperately with severe pain and depression for 17 years. I am now well. I followed Teds Borax detox protocol for 3 weeks to rid my body of fluoride. I thought I might die from the severity of the headaches body pain and stomach pain and sickness during the Borax treatment. At the end of 3 weeks I was almost 100% well. Then I slowly got off the cymbalta and stopped taking ibuprofen. It's been almost a year now. When I completed the Borax treatment I followed Jason Utley's Fibromyalgia cure. A few times during these last four months I had neck and head pain return. I did Borax for 3 days and the pain was gone. I take all the vitamins recommended by Jason Uttley three or four times weekly. I use only coconut oil for cooking. I NEVER touch any soda whatsoever and very little sugar or white flour or milk products. About six months ago I switched from Thyroxin to Armour thyroid for my low thyroid. I weighed 178 in March of this year and now I weigh 153. I also walk ALOT and dance on my little trampoline. Life is so awesome. I have no more depression and very little pain.. Mostly no pain. I still have some gastritis and once in awhile my eyes burn. I have a lot of mercury in my mouth which I haven't been able to get removed due to finances. All of you w Fibromyalgia read Jason Utley's cause and cure and look for Teds Borax protocol. I'm living proof that Fluoride is a major cause of this disease. THANK YOU Earthclinic... Jason and Ted. What an amazing blessing you have given me.

I need to add to my post that I also began eating Coconut oil(1-3 Tablespoons per day) as well as massaging Coconut oil into my skin almost every night before bed.

My teeth and gums always hurt and bleed when I brush and have for over 10 years. The 1st day without Fluoride I threw my toothpaste in the garbage and began brushing with Baking Soda and then rubbing Coconut Oil on my gums. After only 4 days my gums quit bleeding and my teeth stopped hurting. I had a cavity which hurt badly for about 6 months and it stopped hurting. I don't know if it's gone but the pain is definitely gone.

Posted by Mary Margaret (Walla Walla, Wa) on 10/26/2012

It has been 28 days now since I began detoxing from Fluoride. Each day I note progress in alleviation of symptoms. The first 14 days I did Borax 1/8 tsp. In 1 liter water that I drank throughout the day. I sometimes added 1/8 tsp sea salt to the mixture as well. I did not drink anything other than distilled water. For 19 days I suffered desperately. I lost 12 lbs and its been 28 days since I began. The most significant change is that the hard fibrous lumps in my breast are gone and my chest and breasts are COMPLETELY pain free. The front of my neck is pain free and all the lumps that were there are gone. I don't know why but right where my thyroid is my neck became very white. My lower legs are no longer painful to touch. My arms are much less painful. My knees are slightly less painful. My head is not painful to touch. The weird sweeping sensation has been completely gone for 3 days. I started taking vitamins C, D, B, Magnesium and zinc a week ago. The one time I had fluoridated water I went back to day 1 with all symptoms flaring up again and it took 4 days to get back on track.

I will continue this regimen until I know that I am well. I will let you all know how I'm doing in a few weaks. All that I am doing came from the advice of Jason Uttley and his Cause and Cure posts on the Fibromyalgia pages. I also will continue with the Borax protocol which was advised by Ted to help rid the body of Fluoride.
