35% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide--

I had crippling rheumatoid arthritis in 1985, where all the joints in my right arm were locked up and would not move. I was in constant, horrible pain and got no sleep for over 3 months. I began drinking extremely dilute amounts of the 35% HP DROPS in PURE WATER (NOT Tap Water!!)I also had candida albicans, and my cholesterol level was 465 as tested by my MD friend. Within 1 week the pain in my joints on my right arm was GONE and I was sleeping like a baby! Within one month I had free range of motion in all joints--from my fingers to my shoulder. My cholesterol was down to 289 and the candida symptoms were greatly reduced. By the end of the second month, my cholesterol was 155 (normal and safe) and all symptoms of candida albicans infestation were GONE. That was 28 YEARS ago, and I have had NO reoccurances of any of the above problems. I call that a "CURE!"

H2O2 amounts taken: Begin first day with ONE DROP H2O2 in 8 oz. PURE WATER. Second day: two drops H2O2. Third day: three drops H2O2...and so on until you reach 10 drops per day. Now, if the taste is too bad, split the HP drops into 5 in the morning, and 5 in the evening--near bed time. Work back taking 10 drops twice a day, THEN split it into THIRDS, AND begin taking 7 drops THREE times a day, or whatever you can handle. Slowly work back up to taking 10 drops THREE times a day. Don't go much higher than that, or you might want to stay at 7 drops, three times a day. Let your body determine your amount.

ALSO, do NOT drink any H2O2 water 45 minutes BEFORE OR AFTER EATING A MEAL OR TAKING SUPPLIMENTS! You may throw up (vomit.)

ALSO, take 500 mg. of Vitamin C once a day to neutralize any free radical formations that may have occured. The oxygen in the H2O2 attacks the iron in the blood and causes that reaction. The Vitamin C will clean it up, and Selenium may also be substituted for the Vitamin C.

MY SKIN CANCER (Melanoma) "erased" with topical application of 35% Food Grade HP: I had several dark mole-like formations on my forearms come up after being out in the Texas sun a lot. They itched, and my doctor friend said they were Melanomas and that I should see a professional about them. I knew what HP would do for them, so I took a nail file and GENTLY abraded the surface of these dark bumps, and then I applied straight 35% Food Grade HP to the spots with a Q-Tip (cotton swab on a stick) UNTIL THEY TURNED WHITE IN COLOR. I did this 3 times a day for a week. By the end of the week, they had turned to powder or dust, and were FLAT and GONE! There was no itching, NO pain, and they left a slightly lightened spot on my arm where they used to be. They never came back again, and that was over 20 YEARS ago!

ARTHRITIS IN MY KNEES: 17 years ago, I developed rhumatoid arthritis in both knees. I began the HP method by washing my knees with soap and water to remove any body oil, then MISTED them with a 3% solution of HP that was diluted down from 35% Food Grade HP (12:1) with PURE WATER. I wore shorts and then misted my knees, then waited until they were dry, then misted them again while I watched Television or did Computer work. I did this for at least 30 minutes at a time, and I did 4 HP misting sessions a day. My knees were back to NORMAL WITH NO PAIN in ONE WEEK!! I was so happy! I told my friends who had similar problems, and they said that they tried SOAKING their finger and elbow joints in 3% Food Grade HP by pouring the 3% HP solution into a shallow bowl and soaking them for 30 minutes 3-4 times a day. When finished, they would pour the 3% HP solution back into a one gallon plastic jug. The last soaking, they put it in the refrigerator for safe keeping overnight. The next day, they would remove the HP jug from the refrigerator and let it sit out until it had warmed to room temperature, then use in in the bowl to soak their joints until the evening. Worked great!! If you make up one gallon of 3% solution and keep it in the refrigerator, it should last at least one month before you need to make another gallon of it.

IN DALLAS, TEXAS, I found 35% Food Grade HP at "Roy's Natural Market" 6025 Royal Ln. Ste 130
Dallas, TX 75230-8857
Phone: (214) 987-0213. They have been selling HP for many years, and it is about $16.00 (US) for one quart, which will last a long time when you are spraying it.

Enjoy being pain-free!

re: chronic systemic candidiasis/numbness/agression/depression/acne/bedwetting. My whole family has been overrun by candida. Our ph has been off for years. As a result, many, many health problems. Found a website with info on 35% grade h202 and of course your site for the ACV and oil pulling.

Gradually building up from 1 drop in 6-8 oz of water 3x's daily of h202 until you reach 25 drops 3x's daily over a course of 2 weeks(for those who can stomache this, please note this is only for CHRONIC ailments and 35% FOOD GRADE h202 ONLY, purchased online or at health food stores). After 2 weeks, once you are up to the full doasge, continue for a week (may need to keep going for weeks, even up to 4 months, depending how bad your case is) and then slowly taper off, decreasing each dosage by 1-2 drops until you reach a maintaining level of 1-3 drops daily, or every other day, depending on what is best FOR YOU. Note: 35% food grade h202 needs to be handled with kid gloves. It is very strong and MUST NOT be abused or taken in large quantities. Death can occur if taken at full strength. Keep in refigerator and if contact with skin, rinse area immediately.

I think if I had to do it all over again, I would have gotten our ph levels balanced BEFORE starting course of h202 therapy, but as it was, I was already in the middle of it when I stumbled upon this site for using ACV in hopes of curing other ailments we all had. For the ACV therapy I used the standard 2 Tbl ACV (organic unpasteurized is best, NOT white vinegar!) mixed with 1/4 tsp baking soda.

Finding the right dosage for your younger children will have to use some smart thinking and regulating. Only you know your child best. Always start with smaller amounts when in doubt and gradually build up. My 16 year old could not stomache more than 20 drops of 35% h202 3x's a day. For my 11 year old I did a max of 14 drops 3x daily and my 6 year old, 8 drops 3xs daily. I have heard lecitin can be used to help lessen the nausea that is often associated with taking h202 orally, though I have not personally tried it.
As for the ACV, my teen was ok with the adult dosage and my younger two by cutting it in half.

Ted has stated on this site that h202 and ACV should not be mixed, so either do one or the other, however, I found for my husband as well as myself, alternating days has been working out so far. In other words, one day doing h202 and then the next day only using ACV.

Oil pulling has also proved beneficial for us, 1 Tbl EVOO (extra virg. olive oil) swishing and pulling through teeth until it turns white and liquid like. Twice weekly.

Ok, here is the list of ailments we had that have been greatly helped by, if not completely cured by doing the 35% food grade h202 drops, ACV/baking soda and the oil pulling:

-CHRONIC systemic candidiasis
-CHRONIC vaginal itching (would get pap smears and tested for yeast infections which would all come up negative, found out from another Dr that lab results for the testing of candida have a 55% inaccuracy)
-MRSA (kept re-occuring and Dr's could not find the reason for it, have spent weeks in the hospital for this)
-numbness in whole body (was running 20 miles a week, had to cut down to zero because of this, Dr prescribed anti anxiety medication for this and of course it didn't work)
-heart palpitations
-fungus (Dr's could not cure for years and years)
-allergies (we have taken EVERY known allergy med out there, none worked)
-bloody nose (2-3 x's a week)
-night time bed wetting (one son did not have a dry night since he was born and now is on his way to never having to wear "pull-ups" ever again--we got all types of conflicting medical advice from different Dr's over this one and not one of them worked to "cure" this)
-acne (Dr put him on 3 month course of tetrycycline to no avail)
-insatiable appetite
-weight gain (we have all lost 3-4 inches around waist)
-chronic mucous in lungs (one son was diagnosed with asthma and put on meds, only to aggravate the stuation, my son was going nuts,to the point of a mental melt down; he would also wake up in the middle of the night gagging on this mucous-phlegm like substance, eventually leading to him throwing up...not fun)
-anxiety
-depression
-low energy (I would need 14 hours of sleep some days)
-aggression/irritability(my temper was so bad that my family was becoming scared of me!)
-acid reflux
-stomache ailments (husbands stomache was terribly distended)
-sore joints/muscles (to the point where I needed my sons and husband to literally POUND on my back as hard as they could in order to alleviate the achiness)
-insomnia
-headaches (800 mg of ibuprofen was no longer working)

...basically being a part of the dead, rather than the living!

Thanks to all who have passed on info in order to improve the quality of life for others. You guys rock Earth Clinic, (and a shout out to Dr. David G. Williams for h202 therapy as well)!

Please web search 35% h202 and look for any and all titles with Dr. David G. Williams. He has a very detailed dosage chart and lists what to do and what NOT to do while doing the hydro-therapy. There are a few important factors I have failed to mention in my previous entry that are important. As you become more comfortable taking 35% h202, you can adjust accordingly with slight variations like I have.

I was ill for 2 years with severe candida throughout my entire body. Nothing worked to take away the pain from infected ovaries, kidneys, urinary tract, bowel etc...as I was given copious amounts of antibiotics to supposedly cure me - I just got sicker. Some elderly lady in a health food store told me to do a total elimination diet. I subsisted on short grain brown rice and steamed vegetables with distilled water for 2 months coupled with food grade hydrogen peroxide in specific amounts and intervals.

In the third month, I was finally pain-free the candida was completely gone! It was a miracle and 15 years later I'm as normal as can be and am able to eat and drink whatever I want. I still take the H202 and aloe vera juice or Cider Vinegar in the mornings and am very aware of what I eat and drink. Being sick teaches you a lot of lessons. It also told me about the power of prayer and positive thinking.

Hello Rhonda. I do not know what Stephen used to flush his kidneys since he did not specify. And since his post is way back in 2006, chances are unless he is a daily reader he probably won't respond back to your question.

I can tell you that ASPARAGUS is very good for flushing the kidneys. You can smell the asparagus as it passes from your urine. I have also read something in the asparagus actually will disolve kidney stones. So load up on the asparagus or google and find you a good organic asparagus extract. You can also type in kidney cleanse in the search box here and see if anything comes up...

Hope this helps!

Bill, my alternative doctor has given me liquid iodine forte. The bottle says 1 drop 0.05 ml iodine as potassium iodide 150 mcg. Is this as good as lugol's? Is it worth taking and how much to equal lugol's? He has me on two drops a day. Is that enough for the candida protocol? Thanks for your help

Hi Cindy...The iodine you have is not strong enough. When you compare 1 drop of your iodine forte(150 micrograms of iodide) against 1 drop of 5% lugols iodine(6.25 mgs) then the one drop of lugols contains 41 times more iodine than one drop of Iodine Forte. This means that one drop of 5% Lugols Iodine equals 41 drops of Iodine Forte in terms of iodine content.

Also, you have the potassium iodide form which is certainly useful but not as useful as LI which contains all three forms of iodine in solution -- iodine, iodide and triiodide. Since your Iodine Forte is just potassium iodide it will therefore not have the same benefits as LI because it does not contain the other two forms -- iodine and triiodide -- in solution.

That's why it might perhaps be better and more effective to use Lugols Iodine. Also remember that you can use Iodoral if you wish which is just LI in a pill. You can find and order Iodoral easily on the internet.

If you have already bought the Iodine Forte I wouldn't throw it away -- you can still use it for other things.

I would like to share this story with you!

I've researched about Candida for quite a while in order to help my mum that has been suffering from Candida for about 25 years and it got worse and worse. She had to brush her tongue and her teeth several times a day, she also had Candida on her nails. Her digestion was bad, her energy was low, she was a rather negative person. She really suffered. I also need to tell you that many people with Candida should first get rid of their Amalgam teeth fillings and then divert it correctly (you'll find information about that online easily)

Desperate enough, she was willing to try something new with me being her "supervisor".

We did the following:

10-days green juice fast, strict diet and colon cleanse once a week

after those 10 days fasting she had to follow a very strict diet: No sugar, no alcohol, no carbos, no nuts, no animal products (besides once a week a small piece of meet or fish), no nuts and seeds, no RAW food, no artifical food products (like the "E's"), if possible organic. So in short, she has been eating mainly steamed or stired veggies with a sauce (oil or coconut milk or soy cream with lots of amazing spicies and herbs), avocado purée with lemon, salt and pepper for breaky or Hummus.

After one month Candida was reduced for about 40 to 50%.

The second month she was allowed a little more but only because we had really good results. Once a week she was allowed to eat: meat, fish, a glass of good wine. Every day she chose different carbos and ate them in small quantities (only eat a specific sort once a week max): brown rice, spelt, rye, quinoa, millet, corn (no wheat if poss).

After the second month she was an almost different person - spreading so much love and light!

She will have to continue another 3 to 4 month I guess. And she felt very weak in the beginning for about one month. It is a lot. But it is so worthwhile if you get to the point where everybody could be: feeling light, authentic, loving towards yourself and others... And she has become so easy-going, so relaxed;)

Hello Bill,

In your book you advise against eating fruits, especially citrus fruits, because they contain "citric acid that uses up alkaline body bicarbonates during digestion".

However, the juice of lemon is used in alkalizing remedies that you recommend to alkalize the body.

Could you explain this contradiction?

Moreover, after drinking lemon juice, I get UTI and pain in my back, and I wonder whether is this some kind of die-off. I do not experience the same reaction after antifungals such as VCO.

Hi Marcin...if you were to drink lemon juice in its raw form then it would have to be neutralized by the pancreatic juices first in the duodenum before it was properly absorbed into the body as citrate(the safer and more alkaline chemical salt form).

So citrate may simply be thought of as the post-digested form of citric acid. The point to take away here is that drinking the raw lemon juice containing the citric acid needs to first be digested and neutralized to citrate form before digestion and absorbtion into the blood. But the bicarbonates stored in the pancreas are also crucial to help maintain the correct alkaline body pH in other parts of the body. So if you take the raw lemon juice then you are effectively wasting the body's bicarbonate stores(which could be used elsewhere in the body to aid other metabolic processes) in the pancreas and reducing them.

So that's why it's far better to take the post-digested form of lemon juice(as citrate) by adding water and sodium bicarbonate(baking soda) to the raw lemon juice and then drinking it this way. This form does not need to be converted to citrate -- it is already in the post-digested citrate form -- and will be easily absorbed into the blood without depleting the crucial bicarbonate stores in the pancreas.

And apart from the above reasons, if you drink raw acidic lemon juice or vinegar then the acids in them will tend to erode and dissolve the enamel on your teeth over the longer term. That's yet another reason why it's better to supplement the more alkaline citrate or post-digested form of lemon juice using sodium bicarbonate.

Regarding your UTI and back problems, these are probably being caused by excess cell and blood acidity caused by the candida and other poisons being released in your body. This acidity can cause damage to the fine filtration network in the kidneys which might be causing your back problems. And if your kidneys are not up scratch then fungal/bacterial infections will get through to infect the bladder causing the UTI problems. That's why its important that you should be taking the lemon in water mixed baking soda -- this will help to alkalize the cells and should help to reduce the pain. Take this outside mealtimes twice a day and also take 1/2 teaspoon baking soda on its own with water at about 9:00 pm before you sleep. Both these protocols will help to make your body more alkaline and should help you. For the back problem you might also want to try using a tablespoon of VCO mixed with about six drops of lavender oil or tea tree oil or clove oil for some immediate relief.

I just want to encourage others to stay on a pretty strict low fat diet while killing candida and other beasties. I have had candida for many years and have tried the lowfat raw diet and am now taking MMS in addition to it. I am only up to seven drops but so fat so good, no side effects yet. I think I am feeling well because of staying lowfat this means only fruit and vegetables and rice cakes and sprouted grain breads, etc. Everyone who has researched candida treatment knows most people say stay away from sugar but I learned that the sugar can't feed the beasties on lowfat diet on the internet. I have had very good success with it but I still get symptomatic if I slip and eat to much fat, thus I am using MMS to help kill it off. I am convinced that these two together will make and are making a huge difference. While I don't eat all raw, the MMS and lowfat high raw diet are making a big difference. Also, it is important to normalize your ph and this diet with MMS will do that. I have read that the beasties cannot live in an alkaline environment.

Hi All,

I have used Lufenuron a couple times and it has cleared up my symptoms of systemic candida. I can even eat sugar with no adverse effect except that after a month or so the candida comes back.

So I recommend it with a candida diet so hopefully the candida will not overgrow again. It was a welcome break from the intestinal discomfort and brain fog. It is a drug and as such has some not good side effects but for me I saw none.

Fermented foods and NO sugar or white flour products. No high glycemic foods. One dose lasted me a good month.

Beware non food grade. Food grade lufenuron is worth the price.

Lufenuron has been demonstrated to help with fungal infections in other studies. Within a few days of taking it, body odor disappeared (a miracle in my mind). If I let 2-3 months lapse between doses, I can tell I've run out of lufenuron because I will notice deodorant doesn't work and I will crave sugar (some say this isn't related to candida, I disagree). I never crave sugar when I've recently had lufenuron. I think it also reduces or all but eliminates acne, although that effect could be because I'm not eating as much sugar. Been using lufenuron for at least 4 years, often forgetting I have it and not taking it monthly, but always recognizing the benefits within a few days of taking it. When the yeast come back, I will begin to think I need to throw my shoes out. Luckily I found a way to spare my shoes and simultaneously instantaneously erradicate the yeast and bacteria in the skin on the bottom of my feet. My trick will hopefully help others. It's easiest with sandals but can work with closed shoes if one proceeds with sensibility. The trick is to mix baking soda about 1:5 with hydrogen peroxide 3% (drug store quality) and squirt (if an absorbent insole, spray) onto the insoles. Insert feet and squish it around then walk around for a few minutes. It makes my feet so fresh and the shoes smell better than new. This should be used carefully because some could have sensitivities to either product. If one determines from a test patch that their skin is sensitive to this, try diluting the solution with water.

BTW, as many have noticed there seems to be a link between candida and autoimmunity (including allergies). Taking MSM in large doses (1-3 tbsp/day) completely cleared sinuses and other allergy symptoms. Some say MSM is effective against Candida so this might be one remedy to research if one wants to stay natural and avoid lufenuron. I have a "whatever works" philosophy and keep trying new things until one works well and is affordable and without ill effects. The MSM in such high doses caused me headaches so I had to stop it. Today I started molybdenum. Apparently a high sulfur intake resulting in headaches can indicate a molybdenum "deficiency".

M: The MolyB will also help detox aldehyde toxins produced by the fungus (which is a big contributor of headache). Also take any form of Niacin w/ the MolyB for maximum effect.

As for MSM, adding about equal amounts of Vit-C makes for a much more powerful antibiotic.

Three other good natural remedies for fungal/candida issues is ACV, Coconut Oil, and Iodine.

As an adult woman I've had a few yeast infections but last year I was given some really strong antibiotics and after that I had what was a permanent yeast infection for a year. I also have a skin condition called psoriasis. I came across the possibility of a severe candida infection and began researching. I finally came across this website about Lufenuron, which is actually a veterinary drug. I ordered it online, it arrived from the Czech Republic, I was a bit concerned - but I went for it. It worked.

None of my natural remedies worked, and though I'm all for natural I cannot tell you the relief I have now. It was well worth the die-off (yeah, I woke up in the middle of the night with a raging migraine and puked my guts out) and feeling very ill for a few days. But it's been 3 weeks now and no sign of the yeast infection. I am not at all associated with this company or anything like that - but I am dedicated to sharing this info with as many people as possible so I?m trying to retrace my digital steps and visit all the forums I looked at while I was trying to find help so I could help you all.

Not being one who likes to ingest chemicals, my first thought was as to whether or not you have done any research into grapefruit seed extract. It is all natural, and if used properly, is very helpful for any number of things. It can be taken orally or used topically. My wife has used it for yeast infections and cleared them up unbelievably fast. You should be able to find it at any health food store, and it is very potent. A small bottle will last for years, literally. You only use drops, orally or as a spray.

I had good success using Dr. McCombs candida diet. I found taking apple cider vinegar halfway through to be helpful. I also took virgin coconut oil all the way through. I found this study on lufenuron:

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16008236

Am J Vet Res. 2005 Jun;66(6):1090-3.
Comparison of susceptibility of fungal isolates to lufenuron and nikkomycin Z alone or in combination with itraconazole.
Hector RF, Davidson AP, Johnson SM.

RESULTS:
No evidence of inhibition, either by susceptibility testing or direct microscopic examination of treated cells, was obtained with lufenuron under experimental conditions. In contrast, nikkomycin Z, a known inhibitor of fungal chitin synthesis, had potent activity against C immitis when used singly. A synergistic interaction between nikkomycin Z and itraconazole was found against isolates of both species tested.

CONCLUSIONS AND CLINICAL RELEVANCE:
On the basis of our in vitro data, lufenuron does not appear to possess antifungal properties.


Lugol's Iodine

Posted by Cleopatra (Houston, Texas) on 12/04/2014

Hi Bill,

I have been dealing with Candida for over a decade and just bought your book. I have many questions for you, but will start off with:

I'm fearful that taking the Lugol's iodine will conflict with the Armour Thyroid I'm taking. Would you suggest not taking both at the same time? Or will they not affect one another? I just dealt with having too high a dosage of Armour and it was hell, but I'm afraid to completely go off Armour. Your thoughts are appreciated!

My English is very poor for the writing, not for reading. I am from Brazil and I read an article in the Nexus magazine where a doctor cured a pacient with severe Candida desease with a lot of Lugol. The artcle was about some wrongs in current Medicine or something like that.

Dr, Tulio Simoncini, from Rome says that Candida causes a lot of trouble in the human body and says Sodium Bicarbonate is the solution. But dont be afraid, the human body is very strong also. Put a lot of coconut, coconut oil, Palm oil, garlic and Neem in your diet. About Neem, You can see in YuTube. See, also about Pau Darco, a great enemy of cancer and Candida.

Hi Cleopatra...Taking a natural thyroid hormone(NTH) like Armour can be very beneficial for thyroid problems. But you really need to know how to adjust the NTH dose properly. I also realize that visits to an iodine-literate doc or even the alternative healer can be quite expensive. So some ideas for you which I hope will help.

First you must realize that NTH therapy is only a support therapy -- it supplies T1 , T2 , T3 , T4 and supplies calcitonin(regulates bone formation) for the body. This therapy is highly useful for managing hypothyroid symptoms but, without supplementing higher dose iodine, it is not a cure for thyroid conditions -- which is normally caused by a lack of iodine(and minerals) in the diet. This NTH treatment just treats the symptoms of low thyroid hormone -- It just raises your thyroid hormone to correct levels again without the participation of your own thyroid gland. So what you must really work towards if you can is to heal your thyroid gland and bring it up to full operational health again with a view to eventually come off all meds. That should really be your goal. Why stay on any thyroid meds for the rest of your life just treating the symptoms? That's expensive!!

Furthermore, Dr Brownstein has now tested iodine levels in 5, 000 of his patients at his clinic and found that about 95% of them are deficient in iodine/iodine. So most people in America now have low iodine or hypothyroid conditions.

For some good information on supplementing NTH, see this link:

Natural Thyroid (101)

If you also have other separate problems like low blood iron levels or low cortisol levels then this may also cause T3 levels to be too high in the blood thus contributing to other symptoms such as palpitations, anxiety, insomnia etc. If this is the case with you, then I would advise you to see a thyroid competent doctor in your area, since these problems, which are also tied into thyroid behavior, are much more complex and you will need to be properly tested and assessed.

As I've said, NTH can be very useful so you should continue using it but also you should take the full iodine protocol with companion nutrients as well(to actually cure your low thyroid problem). The best way to test your thyroid levels is to check your body temperature fist thing in the morning when you wake up. Don't get out of bed. Use a basal thermometer to check your body temperature(under your armpit). The correct healthy body temperature should be 98.6 F/37 C. This is one way to regulate your NTH and LI intake.

One can also supplement "hormone free" desiccated Thyroid tablets for the rebuilding of the gland without sudden increase in T levels. This method should result in a slow improvement of the gland. I would not shy from taking the "hormone free" along w/ the Armor as they should work very well together.

Thank you both.

Last two questions: 1. My nutritionist is pushing kelp over Lugol's; how do I explain why Lugol's is superior to Kelp when fighting Candida?

2. Bill, which are you in favor of: purchasing the Niacin and B50 Complex as separate supplements or purchasing the ATP Co factors (which I believe contains both)?

Best, Cleo

Hi Cleopatra...In answer to your questions:

1. My nutritionist is pushing kelp over Lugol's; how do I explain why Lugol's is superior to Kelp when fighting Candida?

Kelp is a very useful nutrient but I'm afraid that you will need much more iodine than the microgram dosages that kelp can provide to both kill candida or to heal the thyroid or satisfy the whole body's need for iodine/iodide. The thyroid gland optimally stores 50 mgs of iodine tops. The rest of the body needs to store 1, 500 mgs on a daily basis for optimal health(see the video below).

The following references and resources should give you(and your nutritionist) a much wider perspective on the need for higher iodine dosages for the whole body(rather than just for the thyroid):

The Missing Diagosis(a book on candida) by Dr Orion Truss

Candida and Lugol's Iodine

Iodine Deficiency

Optimox Research

Iodine Research

Marc Sircus

An interesting video for you:

Dr Jorge Flechas

I also very much doubt that your nutritionist will believe any of the above research because he/she has been so well trained within the narrow guidelines of modern medical research and FDA rules. That's why he/she is probably a confirmed iodophobe who is convinced from all that medical training and propaganda that any iodine dose above 2 mgs is poison for the body.

I've been taking lugol's iodine at 8 drops(50 mgs) a day for 8 years without any harmful effects whatsoever. I also truly believe that my own health has been much improved because of the lugol's iodine that I supplement.

Anyone who cannot take or stand the higher dosage of iodine will probably have either high amounts of bromine or fluorine or heavy metals in their body or will be anaemic(lack of iron in the blood) or will have low levels of cortisol. And if you carefully investigate these reasons as so-called iodine side-effects -- none of them will lead back to excess iodine as the culprit but, instead, will lead back to a bad diet and a bad lifestyle that has been ongoing for decades.

2. Bill, which are you in favor of: purchasing the Niacin and B50 Complex as separate supplements or purchasing the ATP Co factors (which I believe contains both)?

You can use either protocol. I also favour the ATP Cofactors(made by Optimox) because Dr Guy Abraham used his own pills(from Optimox) to help cure iodine deficiency disorders within hs own research. It's up to you whichever you use. I mention using niacin and Vitamin B50 simply because its cheaper and should achieve the same result when used in the Iodine Protocol.

Where can I get a top quality oral magnesium chloride powder/capsule? Is it even better to use a transdermal magnesium chloride oil? I have purchased and am reading the book, "Candida Killing so sweetly" by Bill Thompson

Thank you

Yes, John D, it has been said that trans dermal magnesium chloride is better than taking it orally.

Hi John D....I would use the Magnesium Oil (70% Magnesium and 30% water) both orally and transdermally. Magnesium is used in over 300 major body processes and is used in 700-800 enzyme systems within the the body(according to Dr Carolyn Dean from her book ) -- including digestion, the immune system and for keeping the intestinal environment healthy. See this link.

Their are many sources of Magnesium Chloride. Dr Carolyn Dean sells the pico magnesium form whereas Dr Sircus advocates the natural Zechstein (mined from the Earth containing other minerals) derived magnesium chloride form. Carolyn Dean's pico magnesium form is said to be better absorbed. She promotes magnesium brands such as ReMag. Dr Sircus promotes Ancient Minerals magnesium. Dr Sircus's magnesium chloride form is natural and contains many other minerals besides which are beneficial for the body. Also bear in mind that both Dr Carolyn Dean and Dr Sircus are probably being nicely paid to advertise that ReMag or Ancient Minerals are the best form of Magnesium Chloride to take. So its up to you to decide really

I bought my own magnesium chloride as a hydrated chemical powder in Thailand and make my own Magnesium Oil whenever I need it. I'm still using it after 5 years.
