I have been using this method with a nebulizer for years. I inhale several times, 2-3 times per day. I used to get the flu twice a year, every year. Since I started H2O2 therapy I have not had even a cold or sniffle in the last 10 years! Could not worry less about Covid.

I have also used it more intensively to help with detoxing (longer sessions 4 times a day), and on the 2nd or 3rd day experienced an intense Herxheimer reaction immediately after, which proved beyond a doubt the effectiveness of this therapy.

Barium Poisoning
Posted by Tom (Calgary Ab) on 12/23/2021

Sad to hear this. I had barium up me and caught inside my intestines for about 6 months where it got very serous. I had meet someone else that also had the same issue with doctors tests mistakes and carelessness. I saw it for own two eyes when I was getting a colonics. today I have issues in that very part of my body. Doctor Hilda Clark has a machine described in the book A Cure for all advanced cancers. She teaches how to build and test for a lot of chemicals in the body. She gives the device away. here is link explaining how to build and use the machine. This machine can also detect good or bad products right off the shelf.

Paxil Weaning Remedies

Dear Anon,

I was on Paxil for 18 years, 20 mgs a day. 3 years ago I decided I did not want to take it anymore after I found it was contributing to more problems than it was helping (I had brain fog, thyroid issues, headaches...)The final straw was that I found out it contained flouride. I started slowly with just breaking one pill in half on Mondays. So then after 2 weeks, I broke Friday's pill in half as well. I did that for two weeks and then after that I broke Wednesday's pill in half as well. I kept that going every 2 weeks until everyday was a half pill. Then I took all half pills for 2 weeks. Then I skipped Monday's pill. I did that for 2 weeks and then I skipped Friday's pill and so on. I kept filling my prescription. I was afraid I couldn't succeed, so I kept them for a cushion. I still have a bottle in the medicine cabinet and I have never touched it. It was the best thing I ever did. I warned all of my friends and family before I did it so they would know why I was acting strange or crying or whatever. I never suffered from withdrawls as I did before when I stopped cold turkey for a year long ago when I saw sparkles and had brain shakes... Doing it this way prevented all of those symptoms. I did not feel like myself after stopping this time for about a year or so. It takes a long time for your body to flush out those toxins. I will never go back on anything a doctor prescribes for anxiety or depression ever again. The next best thing to Paxil for my mood was B12 injections. I now take them 2 times a week and I feel great, laugh all of the time, and have loads of energy. I think looking back that was probably my problem all along, I was B12 deficient and did not know it. I am not a doctor and would never tell you to do anything, I am just sharing my experience. Everyone is different and responds differently. Good luck on your journey and God bless.

Thanks mama. I had nettle tea leaves already, so had that last night as I soaked in epsom salts. Got Milk Thistle Seed tea on my way to work and drinking it all day long. I was afraid to try the charcoal since I take so many supplements and didn't want to waste them. Everyone at work is saying it's carpal tunnel, but it came on so fast and, even tho I keyboard all day long every day, I am careful to stretch my wrists and fingers periodically. I'd hate to have that! Thanks for the advice. Silly me, I thought the spray would be safer than a powder.....I've gotta be more careful.

Permethrin Spray Side Effects
Posted by Mama to Many (TN) on 09/18/2019

Dear GertJr,

Charcoal (activated charcoal powder) internally would be my favorite way to detox from something like this. 1 teaspoon in a glass of water once or twice a day. (or 4 charcoal tablets accompanied by a glass of water) Charcoal adsorbs toxins and medicines, so it should be taken 2 hours away from any other medicine. For this type of thing I would take it for a week or two. If that doesn't seem to work, a blood purifying herb like burdock root or nettle would be my next choice. These can both be taken in a tea form, or in capsules. To make a tea, I would use a tablespoon of each and pour 8 ounces of boiling water over the herbs. Allow to sit at least 30 minutes then strain and consume. Again, I would try this at least two weeks. I have taken both for months at a time with only good results. Currently my 13 year old takes nettle daily to see if it will heal him long term of reacting to poison ivy. It seemed to do that for his older brother. At the least, he has had less poison ivy break outs since beginning this regiment. But, I digress. I hope these things will help! Oh, and Epsom salt is nearly always a good thing to do!

Love that stuff.

I got permethrin spray on my hands last Wednesday, 7 days ago. I was spraying my chickens for lice (not wide spray, just a shot under each wing and around the butt) and I know it soaked thru parts of my shirt and, apparently, got into my gloves and my hands got pretty good soaking. That took me about an hour and then I had a good shower, but several days later I notice my hands are tingling and somewhat numb. Any suggestions on how to detox from this? I was worrying about diabetes and then realized it's only been since that exposure. I plan to soak in epsom salts when I get home, but what else?

Prednisone Withdrawal Remedies
Posted by Meera (Australia) on 05/27/2019

I have recently come off a year long course of Predisone for an on going auto-immune disease. I tapered down the dose with the neurologist's supervision over several months. I took the last 1mg dose last Monday and the last 2 days my feet, ankles and lower legs are very swollen and sore. It feels like the skin on my feet might burst. I've been putting my feet up the wall, drinking lots of water and herbal tea and trying to be patient. Do you have any recommendations or remedies to support this process of prednisone withdrawal...? Many thanks, Meera

What is ST?

EC: ST = Sodium Thiosulfate

Posted by K (Canada) on 08/17/2016

I would recomend Colloidal silver, this is a natural immune booster as well as a detoxifier,

I have no idea why you would take molybdynum if it is depleting the copper in your system, because thats exactly what the chem trails do they deplete certain minerals our bodys need to stay healthy like copper and potasium even magnesium, I definatly recomend potasium 100% and colloidal silver .

.. colloidal silver repairs dna damage, great for skin and fungus toxins etc, but like everything else too much of a good thing can become a bad thing, so keep track of your body mineral levels and stop taking the cures when your body is balanced or back to normal.

maybe use it once or twice a month afterwards, aluminum nano particles affects the brain .. monoatomic gold repairs the brain and adds super intelligence as well.. among other health benifits,,


these chemicals enter the body this way..through skin and hair. I hope this helped..

Detoxing From Opiates
Posted by Myway (Delaware) on 01/14/2015

Make sure the rooms you are occupying are free of noise and at night, completely dark, cool rooms. Limit electronic exposure - play card games, board games for distraction. For sleeping, place a thin layer of castor oil on her eyelids to help her sleep. (I have tried this in the past - it works)! Keep her hydrated with water. Be as kind, gentle, loving and as patient as you can. All negative influences are off the table at this point. Lastly, if you have the energy, give her some good coconut oil massages to help relax.

Your kindness toward your sister will be remembered forever - this is not easy!

Posted by Mama To Many (Tennessee) on 01/14/2015

Dear Cody,

Your sister is blessed to have you helping her!

You already have great ideas and I am sure your love and emotional support will be the most important thing of all.

Milk Thistle is something people use to help detox the liver, by the way.

Epsom Salt baths are good for detoxing and for relaxing. 1 cup Epsom Salt in a warm/hot bath for 20-30 minutes.

If it is possible to take a walk, exercise and sunshine are both critical for mental and physical health.

Castor Oil packs help to detox. You can use them over the liver area. I find that using a castor oil pack with a heating pad to be relaxing.

Please let us know how it goes. God bless you and your sister during this challenging time!

Detoxing From Opiates
Posted by Cody (Wi, United States) on 01/14/2015

Hello, I'm looking for as much information and a possible list of things to get for my situation... And any guidance too, my sister final admitted her opiate addiction to me.. I've moved in and today will be the first day of her withdrawals, I'm the only one she has through this and want to help introduce her to natural healing during this.. Show her that prescribed drugs aren't necessary to live a fulfilling life. Maybe even show her the light...

I've heard melatonin to help sleep, loperamide to help with diarrhea, milk thistle (but not sure how or why) vitamin b and c and St. John's wort tea. Any other suggestion of what could help and why would be appreciated so much. I'm scared to see my sister like this but know I have to be strong for her.

...Just Doing My Part!

Posted by Doug (Arizona, US) on 01/02/2015

Hello, I am very fortunate as to finding out that I have a molybdenum deficiency. It causes Wilson's disease. Basically what happens is you can't digest the good parts of your food like amino acids, and sulfur. And it causes massive amounts of candida in the body. Now of course in your case you had a severe crash when you supplemented with molybdenum because it stripped your body of every last bit of copper.

I am on day two of getting my molybdenum from a simple source that also includes copper in it. Diatomacious Earth. I also take it with a couple other things that dissolve it, and help it be transported to the right places in the body.

1st you need some DE powder, but you also need zinc and magnesium with it, the cheap kind from the store will do just fine. I use one 50 mg tablet of zinc and 2 magnesium tablets at 500 mg. Next I get a couple limes which are also high in many minerals, but the main reason I do this is because of the high citric acid in limes. Juice from a squeezed lime will dissolve a penny.

So I take the DE, magnesium, and zinc put them in a glass (made from glass), and squeeze at least 2 limes, (the big ones) and let it dissolve all day. Then before bed I swirl it around in the glass to to mix it up and down it like a shot, I chase it with sparkling mineral water so it is more easily assimilated into my body.

Long story short, I haven't felt this good since November 2002, when my body crashed, and let me tell you I feel fantastic! Of course, I am not a doctor, and you should consult with yours on this.. And while you're in his office ask him to get a nutritional hair analysis done. I will update this post in time. I have no doubt for me that this protocol will continue to work. Good luck, and may the Almighty bless you in Christ's name that you find a solution as he has for me.

Essiac Tea

Essiac Tea
Posted by Om (Hope, Bc, Canada) on 12/02/2014

Namaste, Mama to Many ----

This is a follow up on my Essiac herx reaction. I persevered with the dosage and came across a version much more diluted and authorized by Reene Caisse. I started with half tsp. and today I am using the regular decoction, using one ounce of the herb to two ounces of hot water without problems.

But before that while trying to find the right dosage for myself, I had twice such a reaction that I was horizontal for about ten days, doing only the most necessary chores. No desire for food and tremendous pain in my bones, especially the rib cage.

When I came out of it, I looked at my body, arms and legs like sticks and clothes hanging on that frame. But I am recovering. I have such faith in this herbal remedy. But my previous years' attempts to get somewhere with Essiac imitations did nothing for me. Hence the surprising Essiac reaction which was, however, unusual. I will use it over the year but with breaks. What a God given remedy. I remember the power of these herbs surging through my body.

I am supplementing with Milk Thistle for liver detox report. All is well now. It takes some persevering on the journey to good health.

Namaste, Om

Barium Poisoning

Muslim from Oslo, which type/brand of epsom salt powder do you take orally? I haven't found any around here. Same thing with a test with Barium. It is so high, I feel electricity all time in the body. So, but my test say I have high magnesium and high potasium in the system.

Hi, Mama to Many --- this is the fifth day and at five in the morning waves or nausea. I am drinking ginger tea.

Next week I hope to take the much more diluted version, even fractions of it to make sure it is not too strong. But I had more clarity and energy for a while. Considering the thousands of very sick, even dying patients, that have had success, it must be that I need to cut down on it, being too sensitive.

I wish Ole Henry would take it, too. And loads of vit. C definitely.

Enjoy this marvellous summer. It's unusual here. Namaste, Om

Essiac Tea
Posted by Om (Hope, Bc Canada) on 08/06/2014

Mama to Many from Om ---- Today I have still been purging since five o'clock in the morning. I got the Essiac literature out and found somewhere two lines for a much weaker solution where it was mentioned that some people were having the difficulties I am having. I will stop for awhile and try cautiously again. Renee Caisse had made this decision at the beginning of her practice but I only became aware of it now. So there is hope I can utilize the tea after all. Thanks for your input. Namaste, Om

Essiac Tea
Posted by Om (Hope, Bc Canada) on 08/05/2014

Mama to Many --- thanks for responding. I only took a fluid ounce of the prepared herb, not a tablesp. topped with two oz. of warm water.

Previously I have used Essiac mix of herbs that did not have the sheep sorrel roots . My shepherd passed a large black, jelly like substance which has also happened to a person posting on EC. So it can work but just how far? Today I had just a strange feeling in the intestines and I hope to get over my weakness. The herb mix is very fresh and potent and it is just now to find out the right strength and pausing for two or even three days, making a longer break after say four weeks' usage. If there is constipation, I always take triphala which has been my chief rescue for many years, being very reliable. I would take it sometime later than the evening dosage.

It makes sense considering the chemical composition of each individual which is also the basis for Ayurvedic medicine. One shirt does not fit all.

My animals used to get the cheaper version of Essiac without trouble but with the real thing I will have to be careful and observe.

As for myself, I wish to overcome fatigue of many years which I feel may be toxins. Like a car has to be overhauled. Herbs meditate and pass on the energy of the sun, making it possible to heighten ones' awareness.

Thank you again for your thoughts.

Namaste, Om

Essiac Tea
Posted by Mama To Many (Tennessee) on 08/05/2014

Dear Om,

Wow! What a reaction! And some say that herbs couldn't possibly heal. I too have experienced some strong or dramatic results from herbs.

When you say that you took 1 Tablespoon of the herb, did you mean one Tablespoon of the dry herb or did you mean you took 1 Tablespoon of the actual tea?

Turkey Rhubarb is a purgative. Here is what Mountain Rose Herbs says about it:

"If you experience cramping, you've taken too much. On the other hand, if you take only a tiny amount of rhubarb, you will become constipated. In very small doses, the tannins in rhubarb are more effective than the purgative chemicals and the herb actually causes constipation."

Sheep Sorrel is also strong, as you know. Here is the caution from Mountain Rose:

"Because sheep sorrel contains oxalic acid, it is recommended that it not be used in large amounts for extended periods of time as it can cause mineral deficiencies and liver damage. People with rheumatism, arthritis, gout or kidney stones should avoid sorrel as it can worsen their conditions."

The Burdock Root and Slippery Elm (the other two ingredients in traditional Essiac, as you know, but just to clarify for others) are both generally more gentle. I have used Burdock and Slippery Elm for years. I have not yet used the other two herbs, though have them on my "list of herbs to buy at some point." I am fascinated by Essiac and the wonderful help it can be.

At the same time, I am reminded of this quote:

"All drugs are (meaning herbals, given the time written) are poisons the benefit depends on the dosage." Philippus Theophrastrus Bombast - That of Aureolus Paracelsus (1493-1541)

So, I think you are wise to cut way, way back, given your intense reaction. And maybe even evaluate if it is indeed the best solution for you. I believe you have used it successfully on pets?

I know there are a couple of herbs that were supposed to be so great that I tried and did not find to be good for me. Poke is very poisonous, but two herbalists I respect will use it very carefully and cautiously in certain circumstances.

I agree with you that the fillings you have are a concern, but also agree that the expense and risk do not necessarily warrant their removal.

I also agree that over detoxing could be fatal. Anything that causes great stress on the body would have that potential, especially on a compromised body.

Is there something specific you are working to heal in your body?

Well, keep in touch. I wish I had the perfect solution. We all keep studying and trying different things and learning along the way. I appreciate you sharing!

Essiac Tea
Posted by Om (Hope Bc Canada) on 08/05/2014

Dear Mama to Many ---- both you and I are into herbs and perhaps you could give me your opinion for my present state of affairs which comprise detoxing with ESSIAC, obtained from Essiac West online.

This is the first time I have the original Four Herb with all the roots in powder form. Prior to it I thought I was detoxing with other non original essiac products. Of course it did not do anything.

Guess what! After three days now I feel I have gone through the mill with nausea, griping, gagging etc. to such extent I became concerned. I had only used one ounce of the herb once at night. Well, it felt like an assault on the open front. I often have a message of an herb when I use it the first time. True enough, this message was lengthy:

The herb coursed through my entire torso, staying there a while, then moving to the next organ and so on. So it was the liver, the stomach, intestines, breasts, the skull, lungs, throat. And it worked there with powerful means I had never before experienced. Intuitively I knew this was way too powerful for my body to cope with and I did not take the herb the next night. But at five the next morning the works started so that I was trembling bending over and clutching my vitals. Instead the previous day where the effects ceased at about eleven in the morning, this day it lasted all day into the evening. At least it did not affect my sleep. Today, on the third day, I feel clear in the head and well but weak.

I phoned Essiac West and they said they had not heard this before and advised to take ginger tea for the nausea and to drink a lot of water. My plan is to wait a day as today is pretty normal, and to start drop wise till a tsp. and so on with a day's interruption till reaching half an ounce. I can well believe over detoxing can kill. It has nothing to do with Essiac herbs per se but with one's personal constitution. My body perspires well.

My one problem is with mercury amalgams. I think I have three. There is no way I can pay thousands for removal and implants with their attendant problems. Which is another unpleasant reality these days. I thought to use green algae for chelation and not to give up OP. I had a metallic taste in the mouth which made me alert.

Can I have your side of thought on this? I greatly believe in the beneficial effects of Essiac. The US gov't pulled on authentic business into court for having issued testimonies of Essiac users. They are impressive as I have seen them. They were told "you cannot do this" and closed their business. Where is the law prohibiting this? The times we live in and where I agree with Ol Henry.

Hope to hear from you. Namaste, Om

Detoxing from Silcone

@Suzy: Here's 3 natural remedies for general detox.

1) Take the amino acid NAC 1grm daily to boost the body's primary antioxidant Glutathione. Also, to help boost GTH take either a supplement of Selenium or eat Brazil Nuts daily plus 3mg Melatonin prior to retiring.

2) Foot Detox Patches during bed-time or while sleeping (remove toxic patches upon waking).

3) Take whole body hot baths w/ 1/4 cup Magnesium Sulfate aka Epsom Salts plus 1/4 cup Sodium Bicarbonate aka Baking Soda. 2 baths per week for several wks will help much.

Broccoli Sprout Tea

5 out of 5 stars

This is an excerpt from a Dr. Weil newsletter... which is some positive news for urban dwellers or anyone wanting to detox.

"Researchers from Johns Hopkins and China's Qidong Liver Cancer Institute tested the effects of a tea made with broccoli sprouts among 291 residents of Jiangsu Province, an area of China that which has some of the worst air pollution in the country. The study showed that a daily drink of a half cup of the tea - a combination of freeze-dried broccoli sprout powder, water and pineapple and lime juice - increased elimination of by-products of the cancer-causing toxin benzene by 61 percent, and boosted excretion of acrolein, a lung irritant, by 23 percent. Increased elimination of these substances began immediately after the participants began drinking the tea and continued at the same rate through the study."

HI U ATHONY , , , , , , , , , , At my age, I'm just taking one terrible trouble at a time. Right now I 've got a crushed T 12 vertebrae that is consuming all my attention. I bought a Rife machine after I had defeated lymphoma and figured cancer would be back for a visit. A broke back came first.

Don't know all your health problems and am not an expert. Seems to me that you should probably look at cleaning up your innards before you take on a Rife machine. Yep, it's expensive as all get out. My suggestion is to buy Dr Hulda Clark's book and clean up your body in the order she suggests.

My latest project is building Crappie Condo's from bamboo cane soes we can fill our freezers with fish. Hell to be poor, living off the land, and jus barely getting by. If you are living on store bought stuff then that is the reason you have health problems. First thing to do is bake your own bread. Bread is no longer bread, it is a chemical compound that has weight and takes up space. It was once called matter. Now it is called bread.

I have researched why I have bone problems and it is due to taking a Big Pharma drug for 15 years. Will know better in the next life.

Hi Henry,

how long have you been using the rife machine? I have c.diff and SIBO- small intestinal bacteria overgrowth. Do you think this would help? I have food allergies, colitis, and skin sissies from the all. I'm not sure if the investment is worth it? Is this machine expensive? Thank you in advance!

Posted by Claire - S.A.C. Dip. (Diet & Nutrition) (Birmingham, Uk) on 01/05/2014

If candida is the problem in the first instance i.e., acetaldehyde is the result of candida overgrowth, start eating two tablespoons of extra virgin coconut oil a day along with garlic. They are both anti-fungal and will get rid of the problem - you should expect to see results within about three months. Secondly, reduce your intake of sugar as candida thrives on the stuff.

I suffered recurring bouts of thrush through repeated use of antibiotics following surgery for a ruptured appendix and finally found the solution years afterwards after trying all sorts of things. Keep in mind that you must always treat the root cause of the problem and not just the symptoms otherwise it is like trying to eliminate smoke while ignoring the fire. In addition, the human body is a delicate balance so try to keep everything in moderation.

I hope this advice helps :)

Herxheimer Reactions or Toxic Overload
Posted by Wayseeker (Motown, Ca) on 11/25/2013

Herxheimer Reactions or Toxic Overload:

In the name of being helpful, there is an adage by Hippocrates, which is sworn by every medical doctor. It is, in part.. "FIRST DO NO HARM." This, by the way, is the root of the word "hypocrite, " as in one who takes such an oath, and then does not uphold it.

That said, there are sometimes toxic reactions for two reasons: One, for an overload of a toxic substance, whether it be a poison, or a medication. The other, for a "die-off" reaction, when a toxin is released into the bloodstream from out of an organ or body system. Cleansing too rapidly may cause this toxic reaction, and is therefore to be avoided by detoxifying slowly.

I experienced this firsthand with myself, when cleansing, and discovered that I could not move my arms and shoulders hardly at all, and my heart was racing wildly -- even though I was calm and unafraid. I ran in and mixed up some modified citrus pectin and drank it. I vomited a little, and was then perfectly fine. I recall wondering if I would even have had time to drive to the hospital, or call an ambulance, or if anyone would have known what to do to stop this poison.

What I have discovered, is that there is a law, that all ambulances must carry activated charcoal, to be used to treat many such conditions. It is considered 100% safe.

My other experience was with Marvin, my sweetie, when he went into a condition commonly called ammonia-on-the-brain, or hepatic encephalopathy. The first time it ever happened, I gave him lots of distilled water, and it worked.

The second time, he wound up in the hospital for over two months, and was put on about fifteen medications.

Charcoal was likely the best choice, and would have worked, but was not used... as the standard is to use all possible other medications first, and only last, charcoal. Why this is? I think that answer is fairly said, because it costs about ten cents. Charcoal removes ammonia safely, quickly, and easily, particularly in case of a poisonous condition affecting the liver and brain.

So, here we are, and I can only say, drink lots of (distilled, pure, filtered) water to flush out any toxins, particularly if one has been ill, and is attempting to clear a virus or bacteria. And walk, to get the blood moving to help clear the toxic overload when the buggers die off and are thrown into the bloodstream.

Now, in all fairness, Marvin was not drinking enough water, nor moving about nearly enough, and was also not taking one of his prescriptions to help his bowels move-- because it gave him constant diarrhea. Lemon-aid was also refused for the same reason, which also helps to keep the bowels moving these toxins along.

So-- just wanted to share our experience-- because it was a little trip that led to a very big fall, and could have easily been handled with a little bit of knowledge about a simple, safe substance, called charcoal.

I truly apologize if my recent post caused any difficulty, as I in no way believe that anything suggested here had anything to do with what happened. I believe the man simply wasn't moving enough to move his bowels. "Take up your bed (get up out of bed! ) and walk."


Detoxing from Chlorine Poisoning
Posted by Mama To Many (Tennessee, Usa) on 09/26/2013

Dear Kelly,

So sorry about your friend! I have already suggested charcoal to a number of people today... But it does have so many applications!

Charcoal adsorbs chlorine, so it is indicated for chlorine poisoning. Of course, by now it may be just the damage done and not the chlorine itself causing trouble, but it is still a good choice for detox and for pain. Your friend could use charcoal poultices over the pained area. (Directions are in the activated charcoal section of this website. ) He could also take 1 t. activated charcoal in 8 oz. of water 2-3 times a day.

Slippery Elm Bark Powder is also soothing and healing to the gut. You can make a healing porrige with 1 T. of the powder and stir in warm water, a little honey and a pinch of salt and he can eat this a few times a day.

Comfrey and plantain are also healing and soothing. He can make a tea with these herbs and drink liberally. Avoid foods that are hard on the system - fried foods, coffee, soda pop.

Is this normal for your friend? Has he ruled out other causes of this pain? Does he have other symptoms or fever? I have made the mistake for myself of assuming one this is causing my problems and nearly missed an emergency situation. (I thought I had indigestion but really had a rupturing fallopian tube.)

Please keep us posted on your friend's progress.

He has been dealing with pain in upper stomach for 30 years. Nerves activate it . Very painful in fetal position for 24 hours now ? What can I start to do to alleve the pain? Worried, Kelly

Detoxing from Gadolinium Dye

Charcoal is wonderful for detox. You can get a container of activated charcoal powder at your health food store. Mix 1 1/2 t. In 8 oz. Water and drink it twice a day. Do not take with 2 hours of medication as it will adsorb them as well as toxins. Do this for a couple of weeks.

You can also take a charcoal bath. 1 cup of charcoal in the bath water. Soak 30 minutes. Shower afterwards. Charcoal baths are messy, though. Be careful if you have low blood pressure as charcoal baths can lower blood pressure. You could also just do epsom salt baths. I would do some sort of detox bath 3x a week for a couple of weeks.

Request information from Bill from San Fernando and others as to how to detox from gadolinium Dye from my MRI: I had no idea this dye was toxic till after the fact of having the MRI done. What can or should I do to get it out besides drinking water? Thanks to all for any info.

Hi Robert Henry,

It is so good to hear from you.... Glad you are doing well. I always enjoy your posts. Now I want some apple sauce.... Darn it! ;-) I will have to look into what a rife machine is. I know I read about it a while back, but forget now what exactly one is / does. Happy Fall to you and yours!

YEP, it's me an I'm still kicking at age 77. My latest health kick is a GB 4000 rife machine and I had been told to go slow. They were right. I pushed the envelope and the Herxheilmer effect immediately kicked in. I felt like I had been run over by a dump truck. It appears that you can on go as fast as you can get rid of the dead toxins. I am becoming a believer, but the hard way. I'm smart, jus slow as I've told you before.

Now doing FIR Saunas to get done with the toxins. Starting to feel better but at my age how do you learn to get the benefit? Anyways, all the stuff I do helps keep me mentally alert so that's at least a plus.

Wish I could share our organic apple juice will ya'll. We have 14 apple trees and they are loaded this year. One Gala tree has given up 9 gallons of juice. Don't know what we will do with the rest.

Encourge all to think early about a small farm. This survival thing is getting real. Get guns and get some land. Make a plan. Talk to God.

Mary, Would you mind giving the name of the town or at least the state where the clay is located?
