Iodine and Pregnancy: Hey all, I listen to a show on gcnlive.com called the Power Hour 8am to 11am EST, they have extremely good health shows.. And I have heard two in the past year and a half on Iodine.. This past friday was one, and the doctor on there said that iodine is extremely good for pregnant woman and babies.. He said it will increase their intelligence up to two years old.. My son is 11 and I give him 12.5 mg of Iadorol and I take 50mg a day..He said your body will get rid of what it doesn't use. Also painting it on the skin will only absorb 7% he said.. He said the japanese are the healthiest people in the world and one reason is they get 13.something .5 or .8 a day.. also potassium is very important and magnesium. But he said that the iodine has been proven to make a baby be born more intelligent. And we are extremely deficient in iodine in the States.. You can get the potassium from Black Strap Molasses.. I tried the ACV for weight loss and started gaining so I changed to 1/2 c. ACV 1 TBSP. Black Strap Molasses and 1 TBSP. Cayenne (store bought) Pepper and I weighed 149 when I woke up which is normal then when I ate gained my usual 2lbs.. but then as soon as I started drinking the ACV concoction (it was my second day) I went back to 149. Was really exciting.. Plus it gives me energy.. So I mix it in a one quart jar of water and throughout the day keep pouring it in a 4 oz. glass with a straw and sip it whenever I feel low on energy or just want some.. and I just keep mixing it up when I run out.. I am excited to see if I lose weight tomorrow morning.. Just thought I would pass these along.. Wish I would've known about iodine when I was pregnant with my son.. He has comprehension problems and that may be one cause. (you can get Iosol or Lugol's and it's in liquid form iodine the Iadorol is pill form and easier to take..) I hope this helps !!! Sherry :) P.S. Disclaimer I don't give medical advice this is just for your informational purposes.. As the power hour also disclaims..:)
In the afternoons I have been making myself a 24-ounce tumblerful of lemon water. At first it was just because I need to drink more water and lemon is good for you. But I started noticing that when the afternoon energy slump hit, the lemon water seemed to really pick me up, even better than a cup of coffee. I thought, "Surely it is my imagination, " but the results have been consistent enough that I am convinced that it true.
Here is the "recipe;" I use a plastic juicer thing to squeeze all of the juice out of one lemon into my 24-ounce tumbler. I add as much ice as I want and water. Sometimes I add some stevia and/or a sprig of fresh mint. (The stevia makes it into a lemonade! )
In the winter, I may use this recipe but add hot water instead of ice and cold water. Perhaps I will include a tea bag and make it a lemon-y herbal tea. (Because I love hot drinks in the winter and shy away from cold ones.)
I hope it helps you, too!

Niacin and salt water for energy
Niacin is used by the body to synthesize NAD which in turn is used to synthesize ATP the main cellular energy storage/carrier. Deficiency of niacin can also manifest as pellagra.
A couple of years ago, I started to feel tired all the time. After reading books by Dr. Brownstein on the importance of salt (not table salt but Celtic or Himalayan) and iodine, I started taking a tablespoon of sole (salt water solution) first thing in am with 8 oz of water and iodine. This probably gave me back 80% of my lost energy. After I started supplementing with 250 mg of niacin (not the flush free version) my energy was totally back. I recommend reading "niacin the real story". Niacin and iodine are probably the 2 most powerful and effective supplements you can take for energy and hormonal functioning.
The power of niacin is quite miraculous and can cure arthritis (niacinamide 1500 mg 2x a day with 1000 mg vit c) depression, schizophrenia, addiction, high cholesterol etc.
I think Oil Pulling is one of the best ENERGYremedies around. When I do it for at least 2 days in a row, my energy level goes through the roof! I am quite convinced now that (though no proof, of course) that oil pulling energizes the kidney meridians, much like an acupuncture treatment. I usually suffer from cold hands and feet in cooler weather and the acupuncturist that I had several sessions with last winter told me it was because my kidney chi was weak. Thus he focused the needles in the kidney meridians. Sure enough my fingertips turned from ash white to a nice pink color, as did my face. Well, the same thing happens every time I do an oil pulling session with sunflower oil first thing in the morning. More blood circulates to my hands and feet and my energy level also increases tremendously. So much so that I sometimes have a hard time going to sleep at night (2:00am and I am counting sheep!) Some other people at Earth Clinic also reported a rise in energy levels after OP-ing, so there's something to this theory... I think...
All I can say is Wow! Oil Pulling really works. My dentist wanted to whiten my teeth,to the tune of $600.00, I refused and told him I had just started oil pulling (he didn't know what it was) and it is suppose to whiten teeth so I would wait to see the results. My husband and I were both amazed. After only 3 days my teeth had whitened at least 4 shades, and my tongue was pink and healthy, the coating disappeared! Along with the ACV treatment for my rheu. arthritis and the oil pull, I feel better and have more energy than I've had in years. When I went to the store to buy the oil I bought Sesame oil (could only find the toasted)and Organic Virgin Olive Oil. When I tried to open the sesame oil it flew out of my hands and broke all over my kitchen floor. So, I used the olive oil and have had all these wonderful results from using it. I am a "new person" thanks to this wonderful site!! Thank you!
Hi, I am in the process of retiring on disability. Last year, my health dramatically declined. My doctor thinks it may be Lyme disease even though I've tested negative. I have been experiencing extreme fatigue and body aches for almost a year now. I started oil pulling about three weeks ago. I'm now only experiencing one or two days per week of extreme fatigue and body aches. For the first time in a year, I feel well enough to tackle the clutter that has built up in my house, I've been organizing and cleaning regularly. I still tire easily, but I am feeling well enough to tackle some pretty big jobs one at a time! Thanks so much for this info. It is really making a difference!
I was having a terrible time feeling exhausted all the time and at that time of the month for us women, I was irritable and uncomfortable. My Chinese herbalist kept telling me had to strengthen my blood but nothing was working Then I read about rosehip tea. It has a super high iron content and heaps more vitamin C than oranges. Apparently in times gone by, women used to drink it to keep them going during their menstrual cycles. So after a few days of tdrinking one cup of tea per day, I felt better and more energetic. I didn't add sugar or honey so it was quite tart to the taste, but that didn't matter to me. My advice is if you're going to add a sweetener, use Stevia instead of sugar (lower GI) or Manuka honey so you get the benefit of the antibacterial agents. I've recently started a new fitness regime of just walking and even after an hour up and down hills, I feel tired, but not exhausted and I wake up refreshed and raring to go the next day. I credit the rosehip tea with this. Now I can't wait until my cycle is upon me so I can keep feeling good and energised instead of depressed, tired and cranky.
One of the best remedies for colds, and to boost your immune system is apple cider vinegar, chopped garlic, honey, and warm water. Mix all the these ingredients together and drink it. Instantly you will feel better. This recipe is from my Serbian grandmother. I have been drinking since I can remember, and I have never taken any medication for colds.
Low Energy Cures (ailment):
1) small snacks throughout the day. This keeps blood sugar up, meaning more energy and less of that my arms feel heavy-ness.
2) 1-3 Tablespoons of 100% pure cocoa powder. Stick chocolate in mouth, swish around in mouth with some water until it's dissolved, swallow. Insta-Theobromine <3!
*** CAUTION: be sure not to breathe in the powder! ***
my bf says it takes 17 min to kick in but it's almost instant for me (i weigh about 100 lbs and take 3 spoonfuls). Your eyes will dilate a little and you'll feel pretty good, and have more energy and alertness.
3) Avoid milk and other lactose-containing products. If you're even slightly lactose-intolerant, don't consume anything with milk in it. In the past I would get a throbbing sensation in my head and have to go to sleep after eating 2-3 M&M's because of the milk in it.
4) Exercise. really.
EC: Be careful not to put too much powder in the mouth at one time -- may cause gagging or choking!
I started sungazing one year ago because I needed more balance in my life. I was depressed do to the lack of sunlight in Western Washington state. In the past year I have logged hundreds of hours of sungazing directly at the sun. Depression disappeared in a matter of weeks, my vision and night vision have both improved. I sleep less and have more energy then I have ever had before. Being in a good mood almost all of the time is another wonderful side effect.

Fortunately I have been aware and using remedies from your web site for nearly a yaar. A friend asked what could be done to eliminate diarrhea and I searched earthclinc and fourn turmeric. Upon reading further, I discovered some additional benefits. Most notably after taking less than a tsp the first night, I did not feel drowsy druing the evening. After taking it for three days I noticed a significant reduction in my usual body aches. This is a marvelous site. I've been using herbs since 1971 and this is one of the best resources.
I standing on a vibrating machine.. Did not start to use it until recently.. It seem to give me lots of energy. I stand on. It for 10 minutes.. I just finished doing gardening work today which I have been unable to do, I thught my age of 83 but worked out side in hot sun of thailand for 1 hour with full enjoyment plant papaya trees.. Please if you have any info would greatly appreciate.. Today is my third day of using the machine. Thanks. Alfred
feeling out of sorts, i had heard of the acv remedy and decided to start a habit. about a shot of vinegar in water and see if anything changed. Apple cider and Red Wine Vinegar both had a refreshing effect. Greater vitality and breathing came easier.
