I tried to ingest borax for 3 days by using the right amount for a woman, and I had terrible side effects. I started to have nausea, memory problems, cognitive issues, headaches, cramping, etc. I do a lot better doing detox baths. I do a lot better using Borax EXTERNALLY! I use 1 Cup Borax, 1 cup Epsom salt, 1 cup baking soda, 1/2 cup bentonite clay, tea tree oil, pine needle oil, dandelion root. use hot water, and it works a lot better for me. Internally, I drink pine needle tea, multivitamins and activated charcoal. Ingesting Borax is not for me. To each their own.
Regarding how much borax to put in a bath:
One cup of borox should do nicely. It does clean very well and soaking your hair in it will leave it soft. I would highly recommend showering afterwards. It will leave you feeling rejuvenated and full of energy. Ahhh like brand new. I soak 10 to 15 minutes. Thank God for boron. God bless you.
Borax can take glyphosate and radiation out of the body when soaking in it. I would not do anything less than 1/4 cup. You can do a half to a cup mixing it with epsom salt, baking soda or regular salts that will help draw it in through the skin. When drinking it, begin with 1/8 tsp in a qt. or liter of water. Some use distilled, I dont. Just dont use city water. You can increase to 1/4 tsp.
EC: Ted's recommended dosage for borax is 1/8 teaspoon in a liter of water for women and 1/4 teaspoon borax in a liter of water for men once daily 5 days a week.
I have been using 1/4 cup Borax in hot baths for many months now, in addition to many other major & trace minerals w/ only temporary results. Last time I took 750mg Lufenuron prior to bath and did seem to have better results for my fungal issue. Also, as for combination therapy, I have taken Berberine following the bath which seemed to improve the situation.
Magnesium chloride flakes Dead Sea Kills fungus. Skin amazing softness clears skin. Iodine kills fungus skin diseases. One full eye dropper in bath. Water should be warm not hot.
12 Cell Salts 2 full caps.
My husband did some borax baths and he used 1 cup per bath. I will say he had no ill effects. He didn't do this long term.

For those having issues ingesting Borax I would suggest bathing. I had major healing bathing using various mineral salts in a hot bath for an hour a day for six weeks. I had been diagnosed with lyme and associated co infections including candida and cleared most if not all symptoms using bath salts, citrus (vit. C) and hydrogen peroxide in combination topically. I used Borax, Epsom, sea salts and dead sea salts together. I would also add half a bottle of Hydrogen peroxide and scrub my skin with citrus. I used about 4 cups total salt per bath. Soaking the neck and thyroid seems important and I cleared lumps around my thyroid and all sorts of skin anomalies. Whenever I feel sick again from environmental toxins and parasites I just take a few baths a week and it clears my system. I was sick for 8 years and tried western and non-traditional treatments and nothing worked like this bath formula. I never ate borax but did increase ingesting mineral salts, Vitamin C and MSM. I also like to put Borax in my work boots. I noticed a detox from this.
Be nice please.

From what I've read about a cup of borax should do the trick in a bath.

Hello Yasha from Imnaha,
You ask how much borax for the bath:
If drinking, use 1/20th of a teaspoon in a gallon of water and drink throughout two days.
Yasha there is not an exact science on this. But if you read the material about oral consumption you'll see that VERY little is required. By extension I use proportionally the same for a bath. The absorption will be less than orally consumed but spread throughout the body allows for a diverse transfer to different regions. Less but better applied. Same idea for Epsom Salts baths. I can orally take a magnesium supplement (and I do) but also there is a broader or wider absorption with Salts baths. A very ancient remedy to many maladies.
Best to you,
On this site Ted has recommended 1/4 tea spoon for men and 1/8 tea spoon of borax for women with 1/4 tea spoon of sea salt in one liter of water to be consumed through the day for internal use. Therefore, for bath one cup of borax should be ideal to get some benifit of borax for any health problem you are looking forward, may be don't soak for too long but I feel the concentration should be adequate to get the benefit.
Is a boron foot bath recommended for arthritis joint pain? If so, would a boron supplement capsule dissolved in water work? And how long to soak recommended?
Indeed. Yasha is about 78 years old now if she's still drawing breath, and is/was living in one of the most sparsely-populated, isolated areas of these United States of America in far northeastern Oregon (I used to live in the same county a few years back). A different breed of people live there, the very few who do, and the modern world has a tendency to confound them. Am not meaning this harshly or being mean. It's simply the way things are there. Good people, but their minds are generally made up and they can confuse when given facts. Go there, you'll see. Gorgeous country, Hell's Canyon area.
On another note, all of the vast amount of ideas, experiences, and knowledge here are quite likely helping to extend my life at present, having fought a couple of cancers all naturally for pushing 6 years here now (bladder and prostate). The borax has been incredibly effective in keeping my system on the slightly alkaline side, a critical part of my chosen therapies. It's kept the cancers from being able to grow.
Important, and respectfully- a little borax goes a long way. In my estimation- 1/8th teaspoon of borax in a quart/liter of water per day may well be too much for many if not most people. One quarter of this amount is likely fine, 1/32nd teaspoon (that is- one measured "smidgeon") dissolved well into a quart or liter of clean water per day is a strong alkalizing solution, still requiring a couple of days off each week.
And thank you one and all for spending the time to share and thus help many others. Had I gone the conventional medicine ways there would have been no way that I could have spent the last half a decade living life to the fullest. Thank you EarthClinic.
For some reason ingesting borax causes my arthritis pain to get worse. Tried it several times and it happens each time. I have just showers in my house, no bathtub, so I can't soak in it though I have done foot soaks which were not that helpful. I wish it worked for me!
I have read that it is most common when starting Boron treatment for a person to have flu-like symptoms brought on by detoxing. It is called a Herxheimer Reaction and is a temporary state caused by the body starting detoxification. We are told to stop a day or two and it will stop and then we proceed with the treatment. It may be that you started out with too strong of a solution and need to increase it more slowly.
