I have never had any problems with Borax.
There are some that do. In our family of 6, none.
We have used it as the basis for all following therapies. Including Silver.
The thing I believe is problematic that most do not address is calcium. It is the devil. I have seen and experienced great things with the elimination of excess calcium and adding D3 and magnesium. Magnesium just displaces the candida. D3 gives the foundation to build on.
In our case, calcium was preventing anything from moving forward. Excess calcium exists in your circulation and joints. Without good circulation you prevent the remedies from working.
So, if you were my daughter, this is what I would do.
Take your borax water. In beverages or in a glass of water through the day. This removes excess estrogen from our environment and food and water. It provides boron a critical trace element. Fights candida. Helps displace some calcium.
I take baths all the time. Borax 1 cup and 2 cups of Epsom. Fish tank dechlorinator. 1 cup of hydrogen peroxide. H2o2 oxygenates the body providing further relief from symptoms. We just came back from a trip. Our hot tub in the room was where I resided as often as possible. Double amounts to soak. Big tub!
My skin and hair are amazing for an old lady. Never have to exfoliate or any treatments of any kind. I had cystic acne and hamburger face for years. My girls use borax for every skin and beauty treatment...it is first. Saturated borax water. Their friends are amazed at the difference it has made these last 5 years. We buy a case of borax. Dogs and people. All bathe in it. Since we put a fluoride filter on the shower they love their hair too. I realize these are not your issues. It illustrates how much we need that in and on our bodies.
Ted and Bill's book on Alkalinity and Bill's book on Candida are truly treasures. Real help. Real facts. Life changing information. These are the guides to overcoming the mess of ill health. They saved myself and my family.
Borax made all the difference for each of my family. From 19 yrs old...to my Mom who just turned 81.
Saturated borax water recipe. About 2/3 cup of Borax in a 2 gallon bucket. Let stand for an hour or so. Dip fill spray bottles. Put some in a storage jar or 2 for washing hair or last rinse. Leave in hair to dry. To clean I add 5% ammonia for around the house or 1% hydrogen peroxide. I have thrown away all commercial cleaners. Including and especially bleach.
So every therapy we have done has always had borax water as part of the equation. We have not encountered any problems.
Stage III Kidney Failure
Gail, Ted's remedies seem complicated. I was very ill when I started. My husband was sick, it drove me. For myself it did not. It was his blood clot and the results of the remedy in the first 24 hours. Using baking soda reacted with lime. Not taken separately.
Truthfully it takes some studying. I had to reread and reread. My mind was not working my health was poor.
May I suggest that you do the first things to give your body an optimal platform to build your health.
Ted's remedies are information dense. In 5 years we have seen a pattern of things that work. Yet if I had begun with the basics I would have had quicker and better results.
Because I like you had multiple problems and diagnoses. I found it overwhelming. You can write a response, so your in good shape. I would have been unable. I had to have no light no sound and everyone in bed to come upstairs to use the computer, I wore sunglasses as the screen hurt my eyes, the whir of the fan hurt my pain addled brain. I wrote every word I read as I had no short or long term memory.
Here is the culmination of my experience with utilizing Teds information.
First and foremost....remove fluoride from your body. This also removes excess estrogen, from our environment. Which inturn gives your body the opportunity to heal.
4 days a week. For women 1/8 tsp of borax in 1 liter of spring water. Use this water, to add to or make beverages throughout the day.
Detox and heal soaks. This is ideal in the tub, foot soaks help too. 1 cup of borax, 2 cups epsom, 1/2 cup baking soda, 1 cup hydrogen peroxide. 1 capful fish tank dechlorinator. Chlorine steam is deadly to the heart. Your largest organ is your skin. It absorbs nutrients readily and effectively.
That 20 minute or more soak. Removes fluoride, adds non acidic boron, magnesium sulfate, oxygenates your blood, bicarbonate helps alkalinity.
Your information sounds like you are desperately low on magnesium and trace minerals. Buy magnesium flakes. In a mason jar, 60% flakes, 50% spring water, cap an leave sit 1/2 hour, shake it you have magnesium oil. I fill a 4oz spray bottle and a 2oz dropper bottle. This applied to skin stings if you are low so if it does, you can do a few things to stop it. Apply castor or almond oil first or after. Add some water to site. Or add more mag oil and wait it will stop. It is uncomfortable but doable. Magnesium is involved in every system in your body, organs, bones, connective tissue, muscle, elimination and absorption.
Take mag oil 4 to 5 drops in water 2x a day. Provides approx. 250mg of magnesium chloride per dose. Or mag malate for runny stool types or mag citrate for constipated types. At least 250mg 2x a day.
The benefits are endless. In your case, needed. The sphincters that open and close in esophagus and organs need to be supple and strong. To keep acid in your stomach. To optimize your gallbladder, liver, pancreatic action, correct elimination in kidney, bladder. It further adds supple action to arteries and veins. It optimizes your heart muscle. Improves heart and therefore kidney function.
Chlorine in water and environment must be reduced. Sodium thiosulfate crystals, purchase online. From photographers supply. Some take a crystal, like a pill, before showers. Some take it before bed to sleep better. I used to add a crystal to every gallon of water for kitchen use. This was how we take borax too. 6 of us. I keep a gallon of water on sink I add 1/4 tsp borax to it in the am. 4 or 5 days a week. Just the first am one. The rest just get s.t.
I suggest you read Teds chapters for, Barretts and you other issues. You will find a repetition of of the same things that Ted recommends for 1 it will repeat in the next. The beauty of it is often the writer of question to him often has your issues or problems. Sometimes asking the question of Ted as if he were able to himself, answer.
Trace minerals, my favorite is 1/4 tsp of sea salt in a glass of water. If you do not like that, then you can purchase trace minerals as a liquid online. You will find your efforts improve with these in place.
Elimination is important. 1/4 tsp cilantro 2x a week in food or off a spoon removes metals. 2 tbsp lecithin at the same time removes bad vegetable oils and fats if taken at the same time. S.T. for chlorine. Borax for fluoride and excess estrogen. Apple cider vinegar reacted with baking soda to emulsify stones and debris in g.b. and other organs. The baking soda is needed to raise levels the g.b. cannot, due to our poor diets. Which then helps create the amount of bile needed to digest properly. Stopping bile duct obstruction. Then the baking soda lime or Apple Cider Vinegar drink goes further to clean out bladder and kidney. All this without herxing.
There is more. But these are foundational to health.
I also recommend Teds and Bills book on alkalizing to really understand human health.
Dr. Michael Holicks you tube video about vitamin D3 it is the first and foremost depleted nutrient in the world today. It changed our lives.
No aspartame, no msg, no vegetable oils, sugar, avoid all aluminum, plastics, coated pans.
This may help. Janet
Stage III Kidney Failure
In reply to Gail (Kingston, Ny),
Melatonin may be of help for you as it is kidney protective, can help to restore circadian rythyms which are often disrupted in CKD, antioxidant boosting and it can help with GERD associated issues while having an excellent safety profile and very low probability for allergic reaction because it is naturally produced in the body. Melatonin has many health benefits in the human body and does much more than just act as a sleep aid.
Here is an article discussing melatonin and esophogeal injury:
Another article discussing melatonin and the kidneys:
This should be worth discussing with your doctor to see if it is something you can take. Given the seriousness of your illness, your doctor's approval is needed and important to make sure melatonin will be compatible with the drugs and supplements you are currently taking.
