Essential Oils

My father is an 83 year old retired carpenter who has suffered from persistent eczema and psoriasis on his legs all his life.

Over the years he's just about tried everything to relieve it, all without much success. He was resigned to the fact that he would have to suffer with and be self-conscious about this distressing skin condition for the rest of his life. That was until one Christmas when I had made him the "joke gift' of an 'anti-aging skin cream' I had made that contained a mixture of essential oils renowned for their skin-rejuvenating properties. I bought the high quality base cream from a wholesale supplier and, using my knowledge of aromatherapy and essential oils, added plant extracts that have a long-held reputation of smoothing out wrinkles and improving the health and appearance of the skin.

On Christmas day, when my old dad unwrapped the 'anti-wrinkle cream' we all had a good laugh and I had a vague idea he might use it as a shaving cream or for his hands after he had been working in his garden. Unknown to me at the time, instead of massaging it into his wrinkles, he started applying the thick, rich cream onto a patch of psoriasis on his lower leg that had been there for decades and resisted all other treatments. Now you have to understand that my dad is of the 'old school'. A block of soap and some aftershave is all he every used by way of toiletries. He's also the most skeptical man on the earth when it comes to dubious claims made by face cream manufacturers and that suspicion has rubbed off on me.

Probably out of sheer desperation, he rubbed the cream into the affected area day and night for a few weeks (one pot goes quite a long way! ) until one day, completely out of the blue, he happened to mention in conversation that his skin was looking and feeling a lot better. Now I've seen my fathers psoriasis occasionally and, to be honest, it wasn't a pretty site. The skin was red, inflamed, dry and flaky but, with an incredulous smile on his face, he lifted up his trouser leg and the area where his psoriasis had formerly been looked completely normal and healthy.

As I said before, my father has always been very suspicious of so-called 'alternative' treatments such as aromatherapy, so I was fairly certain there was no 'placebo effect' (the belief that something will work makes it work regardless of it's actual effectiveness) at work here but I can't say I was surprised that it works.

I have been convinced of aromatherapy's therapeutic properties for many years, have studied the subject extensively and have successfully used home-made creams containing essential oils to treat my family's skin problems. My research led me to create a natural solution to eczema and psoriasis.

You are going to need either a natural cream (no mineral oil, SLS, artificial perfumes or petrochemials) or use a pure vegetable oil. I recommend either coconut oil, avocado oil, black seed oil or rosehip seed oil as all of these are well known as natural treatments for eczema and psoriasis.

If you use about 100ml of vegetable oil or cream, aim to add four drops of frankincense, lavender, camomile, sandalwood, neroli, carrot seed and geranium.

Test the cream on the inside of your elbow or knee and leave for 24 hours. If there is no adverse reaction, apply the cream or oil morning and evening and you should see an improvement.

If it worked for my father and many others who have tried this formulation, it should work for you!

Hi: I also have Psoriasis and I have tried all you can imagine, from topicals, to pills, baths, soaps, acupuncture, autohemotherapy, You named it I have tried it all. Last year I started a detoxification process and My P was WILD!!! I was covered from head to toe, It was itchy, PAINFUL and really embarrassing.

I kept going with the detox and changed my diet, No dairy, no flour, no sugar, no gluten. I also started probiotics and I started a homeopathic treatment, a year later I am about 85% Psoriasis free. It has been a very slow and painful process and I always itch even when I have no patches on my upper body just a few on my legs.

I tried every cream and ointment, every oil to calm the itch. The only thing I have found useful for me is Cocoa butter. This product has been the only one I've found calms my skin immediately. I use it all over my skin from face to toe and it is wonderful!

I read the comments about itching with psoriasis, especially the burning! That is for me the very worst. I learned that when the burning and itching is making me crazy I treat the area with apple cider vineger solution. The burn and itch goes away quicky! I also use soverign silver drops and they help me a lot. The itch and the burn are mostly gone now and my skin is healing and feeling much better. I use a vinegar rinse after I shampoo. I let it sit for 2 or 3 min and then I rinse and use an organic conditioner. I hope this helps you as much as its helped me.

Castor Oil, Turpentine, Coconut Oil

Psoriasis Cure:

I wanted to share a combination therapy that took care of my recent (and nasty) outbreak of psoriasis on the top of one of my hands as well as the groin area. I have no idea what caused this outbreak this time, I have not had one in years, other than I was loading up on plenty of sweets for a good while just before it happened. This is something I don't normally do.

This lead to the psoriasis on the hands spreading to four of my fingernails and turned them bad.

After much reading on earthclinic, I began to (one by one) try the various suggested remedies - including different alkalizing therapies, ACV twice a day, coconut oil , and even colloidal silver sprays as a topical.

I am convinced by now , that psoriasis (as well as eczema are caused by a fungal /candida overgrowth as sugar nearly always seems to aggravate it, along with it mostly growing in areas that are moist. ( I wore work gloves all summer while gardening, and sweating profusely in them, and why I feel my one hand broke out, strangely the other hand did not at all! ).

Believing psoriasis to be a fungal issue, I had been experimenting with Dr. Jennifer Daniels turpentine therapy (found online and I am an avid listener of hers) prior to this outbreak. I followed it for awhile and then forgot about it. I have recently started the turp therapy again, BUT while in doing so, I decided to mix a little with castor oil and apply it to the groin area that was growing so painful (burning and itching)from the psoriasis patches . I was getting desperate and determined to find relief some way, some how.

I found instant relief and the itching stopped almost at once. a few days ago I begin to add in a little virgin coconut oil to the mix and today I noticed the patches are disappearing very quickly, and the 'oozing' has mostly subsided! I couldn't believe my eyes! the oozing patches were beginning to make me crazy, smelly and just a real gross mess.

The mixture again: approx 1 TBSP castor oil in a dish, add approx 3 drops of pure gum turpentine, and 1/2 tbsp melted coconut oil.. mix it with your fingers and apply to the areas (and the areas surrounding the patches) leave it on overnight and repeat the process each day until its gone.

**Very important to keep the areas clean with a gentle washing a few times a day. Dry the area well (I used a hair dryer on a gentle setting) and wipe down the area with a rag soaked in ACV. I then tried slathering the entire area with the inside of the banana peel (something I read on earthclinic), dried the area again and then applied the castor oil/turp/coconut oil mixture.

As far as my fingernails go, they are somewhat slow to recover of course, as a whole new nail must regrow. I use a combination of various treatments and keep mixing it up to keep the infection from growing resistance to any one treatment.

I use the ionic colloidal spray on my entire hand and nails twice or more a day - whenever I think about it, along with ACV (soaking the nails in it). as well as peroxide, alcohol and even iodine/diluted. I have also introduced the turpentine directly onto the nails and allowing it to soak in and around and underneath the nails.

They are healing up nicely with new growth about half way out the nails.

I most certainly will keep a watch out on my sugar intake from here on out. I really feel like for me, it can trigger a horrific outbreak that can take months to get under control. I feel like maybe our systems are extremely out of balance with all the toxic overload in our bodies and environments.

I forgot to mention too that when I began these therapies, I immediately introduced probiotics back into my diet, something I had slacked off from for a long period. this included home-made milk kefir, home-made yoghurt, home-made fermented saurkraut, to get the stomach flora back in balance. The dairy did not seem to aggravate my psoriasis. I had also switched back to making my own home-made sourdough bread, noodles and other things with wheat, which I also drastically reduced my intake.

The hybridized, G.E , pesticide ridden wheat out there these days, I feel is very lethal for consumption> I am not sure if fermenting it helps, but are hopeful it might offset some of the dangers. if anyone knows, I would love to hear.

I hope this may help some of you, psoriasis is such a dreadful condition to have to deal with, I know.

Apple Cider Vinegar, Dietary Changes

I also tried an alkaline diet without any success until I read about FODMAPS. Now I focus on primarily greens for veggies, skip all nightshades, and rarely eat any fruits or veggies containing FODMAPS and my skin is getting better.

I have seen the most relief from the use of ACV and green juices as well as from raw broccoli (which is very high in vitamin E, thus nourishing the skin). As for topically, ACV may burn for a bit, but I refuse to wash it off and it does make things better, however, is not a magic potion (bummer).

Baking Soda

Just a one year update.

Baking Soda in water is magical. Hardly a half a teaspoon to each 20oz glass is all it takes. Wow does it clean your system but its worth the 2-3 weeks of discomfort.

Dead Sea Salt baths are also amazing. It seems as though it draws the chemicals and impurities straight out of your body that cause psoriasis.

Diet is everything. No Processed foods period. No Processed sugar. Red meat is really good but its not ideal.

I smoke cigarettes and drink beer(Stout is the way to go) frequently and there is no way that these two things are the cause.

I have noticed that there is a time delay on diet. When you eat something that is wrong, it takes time to filter to your skin surface. It depends on the magnitude of how awful it is for your system.

In the end, enjoy what you like in life but if you want healthy skin I have found that you counteract my pleasures with Baking Soda in water for every glass, Dead sea salts for quick elimination of psoriasis and eating well is the best remedy.

Too really crush an outbreak I found that I must change my lifestyle. 85% vegetables and fruits and 15% NON-red meat. Nuts and other things are all good.

Draw the chemicals and impurities out with Dead Sea Salt Baths and intake of Baking Soda in every glass of water as the best way.

I don't buy the stress thing. I do buy the alcohol thing however Stouts seem to be the most awesome with no worries.

Hope this all helps many of you. It's not you. It's what you input that creates the output.

I found out the cause of my Psoriasis was from elevated cortisol levels. This probably would only help people who developed psoriasis later in life. I stumbled on a cure, yes complete cure, when I started taking a natural support supplement for insomnia. The one I use is called Interplexus Seriphos, but there are many other cortisol lowering treatments available. Get your cortisol levels tested to see if they are high. I was so shocked when all my psoriasis completely went away. Not saying this will work on people who suffered from psoriasis all their life, but I always assumed my psoriasis came from hormone levels being out of sync. I started suffering from Psoriasis after menopause. I very much so wish this helps someone else out there who suffers from this disease.

Gluten Free
Posted by Jane (Campbell, Ca) on 10/17/2014
5 out of 5 stars

I had psoriasis on one elbow and on the heels of my feet for more than 6 years. The psoriasis went away after going completely Gluten free for about 3 months. From time to time (about once a month) I would eat something containing wheat and the psoriasis and a rash on my forehead would begin to come back. In my case and that of many other people, going gluten-free helps to clear up brain fog and helps to give you more energy.

Several recent articles that I have read about people being sensitive to gluten, state that there may also be a relationship to Roundup for people who are "gluten sensitive". Although wheat is not a gmo crop, Roundup containing glyphosate is frequently used on wheat crops (and many other crops). Do your own research on this by using the search - "is roundup the cause of gluten intolerance" - to find more details about this. Though I have gone gluten free, this has not fully worked to resolve several other health issues.

Something that really did help to resolve fatigue and brain fog is D-Ribose Powder (1 1/2 teaspoons taken in water in the morning). A friend gave me the book "From Fatigued to Fantastic" by Jacob Teitlelbaum, M.D. The book addresses chronic exhaustion, achiness, brain fog, poor sleep, recurrent infections and more. The author is the Medical Director of the Fibromyalgia and Fatigue Centers. On page 34 of the third edition, it is suggested that one use D-Ribose as studies showed an average increase in energy of 45% and overall well-being of 30% from this single nutrient. In my case, I found the energy increase to be closer to 75-80%.

The rest of the book discusses other supplements that can improve one's condition - some of which I was already taking. (See reader comments on for more input - 163 reviews as of 10/17/14). If you do research on D-Ribose, you will find that many dedicated athletes use this supplement. At first I thought I qualify more as a couch potato than an athlete and maybe this is not for me. But, I gave D-Ribose a try and found it really cleared my mind and gave me the energy that I needed to complete my daily To Do List. D-Ribose is not just for athletes and older people but for anyone experiencing fatigue and brain fog. It is suggested that one use this in the morning as it really does clear your mind and could keep you from getting to sleep at night. Sorry to have gone slightly off-topic, but D-Ribose is such a great find that I included it here.

Multiple Remedies
Posted by Krose321 (Hungtington Beach, CA) on 10/03/2014

I have suffered from Psoriasis for about 10 yrs.. since I was about 13- 14 yrs. old, covering about 70% of my body. I have tried all topical treatments and never really had my condition under control. I have gone natural for almost a yr. (in jan) and have seen more consistent results naturally than with the medications. I started to do a lot of research on what may cause Psoriasis and the first thing I read was that it may be caused by an overgrowth of candida, which then is caused by an overconsumption of sugar that feeds the bacteria. Unfortunately, almost all food products have some sort of sugar in them; but I have gone almost completely gluten free (breads are composed of a lot of sugar if you read the labels). I have tried to cure from the inside out with my diet and eating lots of foods enriched in Vitmins A, C, & E, which are all essential for healthy skin. Vitamin A:(berries, sweet potatoes, carrots, peppers) Vitamin C (kiwi, oranges, papaya, peppers, broccoli) & Vitamin E (various nuts: almonds, peanuts, ect./ avacadoes, cucumbers, spinach).

As for topically, I put either coconut oil or avocado oil directly on it. I also started using a topical from the marijuana dispensary which the ingredients are all natural and you can make at home if wanted (rosemary, cocoa butter, shea butter, cannabis infused avocado oil, jojoba oil, primrose oil, olive oil, hemp oil, and an essential oil)

Sorry for the long post, but I am very fascinated and intrigued that I am coming to find I am able to cure myself, when I have been suffering for 10 yrs. It definitely takes patience and dedication to see results, but once you have your Psoriasis controlled for the first few months with a strict diet, it will be easier and won't need as much maintenance down the road.

N-Acetyl Glucosamine (N-A-G) has almost cured my mom's psoriasis after more than 40 years. Where there used to be plaques, she has very light pink marks that are fading. She has tried many natural treatments over the years, and this is by far the most effective.. She also has had digestive issues (possible IBS?) which have improved as well.

She has been taking 1400mg twice daily, for 4 or 5 months.

Anti-Candida Protocol
Posted by Bill (Sanfernando, Philippines) on 06/27/2014

Hi Dianne...It's good that you've cut out dairy, wheat and gluten in your son's diet but take particular note about eradicating sugars, junk food and processed food from his diet as well. Candida and other pathogens feed off excess sugars and carbohydrates in the diet. Eliminitaing red meat is also beneficial against candida because candida virulence increases with too much heme iron in the diet.

I also wanted to mention some other things that might also help your son.

I've recently read some interesting research concerning the benefits of supplementing Gymnema sylvestre versus candida. The research report is shown here. The researchers at Kansas State University have found that Gymnema sylvestre works against candida in several ways. First it makes sugar unavailable to candida. The other fact is that Gymnema sylvestre blocks candida's transition into the more virulent and dangerous hyphal form. It therefore acts to reduce the virulence of candida in this respect. It must be said that Gymnema sylvestre will not kill the candida but it will certainly reduce the spread and morphing of candida into its more virulent form.

Gymnema sylvestre(GS) is commonly just taken as a tea and should be taken three or four times a day because it is such a safe non-toxic natural product. I would also further advise that GS should be taken combined together with Green Tea for the most benefit. The green tea will also help to kill the candida(due to the tannin content) and it will also help to remove heavy metals as well. The GS will meanwhile act to reduce the virulence of the candida as well as help to starve the candida of its favourite food -- sugar.

GS is fairy well-known and easily bought at health stores and on the internet -- always buy the organic form. The powder form or the tea form are the best ways to take it. I would simply combine the Green Tea and GS whenever you drink the tea form which is the best way to supplement these natural products.

Another good protocol which might particularly help your son's psoriasis is using Bentionite clay topically. Create a wet paste of bentonite clay and gently spread a thin layer over his areas of psoriasis. Let the bentonite dry completely to a dusty crust. This allows the bentonite to suck out heavy metals and poisons from these psoriatic skin regions and will also help to kill any fungus or any other pathogens topically. Then shower or wash off the bentonite and apply aloe vera oil to help relieve any dryness in these skin areas.

Anti-Candida Protocol
Posted by Dianne (Delaware, Ontario, Canada) on 06/26/2014

Thanks for the reply Bill. The protocol to use is very easily laid out to follow. Hope my son decides to go this route. His flare up is very bad right now and we do have an appt with DERM just in case intervention is needed. His flare up began in April and has spread like wild fire.

Do nite shade vegetables really play a part in all of this?

We no longer have any of these but really when it comes down it it are they even the problem?

We have cut out dairy, gluten, red meats, and have cut out all junk food. Eric has been eating a LOT of fruit. He is always hungry and we felt fruit was a better alternative than a lot of other items (mistake I think). We drink either almond milk or rice milk. No coffee but we do have green tea with ginger grated in it.

I appreciate any comments you may have Bill. Thanks

Anti-Candida Protocol

Dianne...Thank you for buying my book on candida which will hopefully help you to both understand as well as help to cure your son's psoriasis problems. When I had candida I had skin problems which also included psoriasis, eczema and jock itch. When I eventually cleared the candida from my body, all these skin problems just disappeared so I now regard these skin problems as merely symptoms of my own candida problem.

Syntol is also a useful enzyme/probiotic protocol and its successful use will depend on many factors -- stage and virulence of the candida infection, immune system health, diet etc. The enzymes in Syntol will aid digestion and will help to dissolve and digest candida biofilms and the probiotics will help to kill the candida in order to return the gut back to normal health. So this protocol works fairly well if you only have candida in your intestines or just locally. But if your son has a systemic candida infection throughout his body, then you might need more than Syntol to get rid of the candida and psoriasis.

For a serious systemic candida infection, here is the strategy I use in my book:

* Anti-Candida and Anti-Pathogen Protocols

* Anti-Biofilm Protocols

* Alkalizing Protocols

* Essential Detox Protocols

* Liver Support Protocols

* Vitamin and Mineral Support (Immune System Support)

* The Health Defence Diet

To help you more to determine whether your son has candida, here is a simple questionnaire that will help you:

Candida Questionnaire

Also, try using borage oil topically on your son's psoriasis. This should reduce the itching and will also have other beneficial effects.

Anti-Candida Protocol

Bill Thompson.

I have ordered your book, Killing Candida Sweetly, just waiting for it to arrive via mail.

My son has had Psoriasis for the past 3 years and is dealing with a breakout at this time. We are going with the thoughts that he has gut issues. Have just started taking Syntol (there were a couple of postings that were positive regarding Syntol on this site). He is putting apple cider vinegar (with Mother) in his water and also ingesting coconut oil.

I am looking forward to reading how you dealt with your issues of Candida and Psoriasis...hopefully my son will have success in ridding himself of this terrible disease.

Apple Cider Vinegar, Coconut Oil
Posted by Caitlin (Austin, Tx) on 06/21/2014

Sounds like the same thing my mother-in-law has especially on elbows and groin area and the only thing that helps is getting rid of all grains from her diet. That includes wheat (white or whole), corn, oats especially. She did this and even her IBS abated. She went back to eating grains and sure enough the problems came back -- full force!

Apple Cider Vinegar, Coconut Oil

I have had a rash under my arms and in my groin that has come and gone for years. went to a dermatologist a couple years ago who was sure it was a candida infection, so we treated for that and it did eventually get better, but would still return. I had a surgery recently and was taking salt baths for the wound and noticed that my rash was getting better. then the season changed, and I was outside sweating a lot, and the rash returned.

I treated with the ketoconazole cream the derm had given me, and it wasn't getting better, so I switched to 50/50 raw apple cider vinegar/water in a spray bottle, followed by extra virgin coconut oil, topically.

Within about two weeks, the stubborn rash is about 90% better on my legs, and under arm, but not much improvement on groin, and the eczema on my hands is worse (possibly stress related last two weeks, as that had almost cleared up prior). I went to derm today to get checked again and derm says that I don't have candida anymore, that I have psoriasis, on elbows, groin/penis, under arm, and prescribed elidel. I'll pick a spot and see if that helps, to confirm diagnosis, but will continue with apple cider vinegar to see if that indeed is a natural cure. I dropped the coconut oil several days ago to focus on the Apple Cider Vinegar and see if that is, alone, what was working. I am not cured yet, so this post is a little premature, but I have seen such positive results from the Apple Cider Vinegar (2-3 times a day), part of the time with coconut oil, that it may be worth a try.

Coal Tar Ointment, White Vinegar
Posted by Gtcharlie (Los Angeles) on 06/14/2014

Psoriasis is an immune disorder which I don't think there is a cure (not even being smart - just joking).

My experience is to stop its growth at its onset. I use an ointment with a 2% coal tar. I also use white vinegar to remove the scaly skin if there is any, before applying the ointment. Calamine lotion can help if you suffer from the terrible night-itch.

Key point is, keep your skin moistened at all times (glycerine is a good choice after shower) and avoid going to places with extreme dry weather. I would wear long sleeves shirts and trousers if I have to visit those places.

I have the same problem as you. I used a Zinc spray with Echinacea & Elderberry on the itching and got instant relief. If you look for it in health store, it is a throat spray very effective when you feel a tickle in your throat. I am going to also try Bill's candida protocol to try and get rid of this problem once and for all. I had gotten rid of same minor skin problem a few years ago by taking oil of oregano capsule, 2 three times a day, 16 ozs of green juice. I also only ate romaine lettuce salad (tomatoes, cucumbers, avocado, etc.) all day. By the way, I know that I am allergic to a lot of foods. Hope this helps.

Hey there Bradshad,

From RI...

Re the terrible itching problem.

Here's a guess for you Bradshad; I'm thinking that given your successful adherence to the alkalizing diet and the problem still persists, maybe the issue is not acidic/alkalizing only.

Here are some (I'm brain storming now) are some possibilities;

1. You have a viral infection...specialty virus effecting an organ in the system that can produce such skin surface outcomes. So as a presumption that such is a possibility I'd be on colloidal silver for a month to test such a possibility. Three tablespoons twice daily on empty stomach.

2. You've been poisoned. I don't mean poison as in someone trying to kill you, but too much of some toxic substance or an allergic reaction to something. (google "70 causes to skin itching" and you'll find pictures plus conditions that could give you a clue. (You're not an outdoors guy are you?...Lyme possibilities? Spider bites?) I thinking SOMETHING else is going on with you. Think back to when this condition started...really the first onset...then go back six months or a year...did anything happen that might be a clue to what is happening BEFORE onset of your symptoms.)

3. You have a serious food sensitivity...normal ones are wheat/potatoes/beans...that would be a typical "carb" metabolism problem. I had to go to a changed died (at my rather advanced age...bummer! ) Try getting off those and by all means go to a Live Cell Microscopy expert and get your blood tested. Most of them do a food tolerance test. I have a great one in SC I go to. If your carbs are not absorbing then alkalizing can help but your system is STILL exploding. I went through this. Skin irritation...the works until the food sensitivity was dealt with. I'm also now on mega enzymes with EACH meal. The result was nearly immediate.

4. Now, as to what to do right now, try the following...On parts of your body experiment with:

...a solution of Borax and water. Take one tablespoon in a cup of warm water and dissolve the Borax (as in 20 Mule Team Borax)...I just wrote a post on EC on how I shampoo my hair with that even drips down into my eyes without harm or stinging. I let it get into ears and rub eye brows with it. Very soothing. I do that once or twice a week.

...also consider topical aloe vera GEL. I know you mentioned you'd tried it but I mention the gel as it seems to really work well; better than the liquid for (burning) issues.

....I presume you do not have a stomach ulcer. If you do, that could be contributing to the problem.

....Try this on a bit of your skin ...take a teaspoon of baking soda in water and make a paste out of it...apply to worst area of outbreak. Leave the "cake" on for twenty minutes. If improved, expand the area of application.

I have a few other ideas but don't want to overwhelm you. Please write back and tell us about what might have preceded your condition. And if any of the topical helps gave you any success in relief.

Don't over look the real possibility of infection/food sensitivity etc. Colloidal Silver can work wonders if your situation is an infection. But you must stick to the protocol. Also make sure your sinuses are clear. A long lasting sinus infection can indicate you have a standing systemic infection, complicating your alkalizing attempts.

Alkaline Diet
Posted by Bradshad (Providence, Rhode Island) on 06/14/2014

So I am on month 4 of a really clean alkaline diet. Of course I have to be one who is having multiple healing crises. The first 2 were not that bad but now this 3rd one is quite viscious. It is detoxing quite bad. I have psoriasis and it is all pouring out. I have increased water and lemon intake, used activated charcoal, bentonite as well, cut back on the herbs. Not much relief. Topically is skin is violently agitated, itching, but more stinging and non stop burning. I have tried just about everything topically (aloe, coconut butter, avocado, castor oil, vit e, toxic Vaseline in desperation, ).

Can anyone give me an answer what to put on skin to stop the burn. Please only comment if you have dealt with this before. I also put probiotic on it with no help. I am very smart, have done a ton of reading, just can't seem to locate any valuable info on how to alleviate this. Thanks.

I agree with what you wrote 110%!!! I am not a rocket a scientist (far from it) but hello... the Sun has been providing humans with one of the only MAJOR sources of Vitamin D for a VERY loooong time! It often makes me wonder why the HEALTH SCIENCES have a habit of "SKIMMING" the surface time and time again when it comes to the root causes of certain diseases(?) I wonder more and more if some in the health based sciences hold back findings on purpose in order to invent a "cure" for greedy types to make millions/billions! Afterall, with all the combined intelligence that exists in the health sciences in this world how can they single out tanning booths and COMPLETELY turn a BLIND EYE to all the chemicals we slather on our skin... and don't forget... all those chemicals we slather on our skin ALSO come in TOXIC PLASTIC bottles which leach even more toxic chemicals into the crap we slather on our skin!!! Honestly... how can they be missing sooo many additional and obvious smoking guns! ?! ?

Hi Steph...I have never found Philips Milk of Magnesia (MoM) in the Philippines. I get my own supply from UK.

The Philippines pharmacies sell their own brands of MoM which usually always contains aluminum (avoid). But you should be able to order Mom from sites like without problems.

For those who have replied to the original post with positive results, what diet did you follow and how strict were you? I have seen positive and negative comments for Candid, GAPS, and SCD diets. The three seem pretty similar.
