Ramp (Wild Leek)

HI U OLE PATOOTS, ORH here, got a different kind of story to tell you. Are ya'll familiar with ramps? Garlic is not in the running. Eat them and forget about distancing because in years past the teacher sent the student home that ate them. They stunk up the whole class room. I had never heard of them until we moved to East Tenn. Poor folks ate them to survive. Now the East Tn communities have a festival serving them to remember the hard times. I have never been to one, but am going this spring in my twilight time. And guess what, they are healthy veggies.

Every post I see just makes me want to say "rebounding" or "cellercising" or whatever.

We have two circulatory systems, both VITAL. One for blood - for oxygen and nutrients - and one for lymph - the source of white blood cells and the VITAL flushing of debris of the immune system and it's so incredible that no one talks about the lymphatic system because its PUMP is the application of gravity in the very motion of life. How could I not have known these things in this context about the lymph system when I've been exploring ALTERNATIVE medicine for nearly 50 years?

We've all heard of the lymphatic system but how can so many people with such an interest not have grasped the "gravity" of it?

I don't understand it but whatever problem you have, my response is going to be "Bounce! ". Bounce on the edge of your bed or a yoga ball while hanging onto something to keep safe if you have to. If you can't sit up, have someone bounce you ON your bed but BOUNCE! Make white blood cells! Blush out the debris and the toxins!! And drink water. Set the timer on your phone to go off every two hours and no matter what you're doing, stop and drink 8 ounces of water when it goes off so the lymphatic system has the water it needs to flush you out.

"Jump start" your immune system and keep it active and running. Don't batter your nervous system, bones and joints by applying the in-the-wild "motion of life" of running or doing exercises on hard surfaces. It isn't necessary and does more damage than good. Bounce. Just bounce. Lightly - until you build up your muscles, ligaments, tendons and bones - painlessly and safely and a LOT. Or have someone bounce you if necessary but BOUNCE. Whatever else you do, make sure bouncing is a part of it.

Two weeks ago I thought I was just barely up to living on my own, safely. I had covid back last spring and still hadn't gotten my strength back after 8 or 9 months. If I had broken my foot AFTER I had covid instead of BEFORE, it would have been all over. I would probably be living with my daughter or in a nursing home so as not to drive her nuts. I was one stumble from assisted living. Not sick, just too weak to even sit on the floor without it taking me several tries and way too much time to get back up.

I have a "Cellerciser" on the way because my old rebounder, despite being a high-end model from the past, doesn't have the mat support I need to safely bounce my feet off the mat which I keep having the urge to do since I have my strength back to increase the effect.

I've regained all the strength covid took and then some. I'm solid as a rock on my feet. and I'll be rebounding for the rest of my life and living on my own for many years to come because of it.

That's it. If you're sick, bounce. If you're weak, bounce. Drink your water and bounce on the edge of your bed and get things shifting. Get your lymph circulating and making white blood cells and "taking out the trash. It's your life support system. Turn it on and keep it running. Watch some Dave Hall videos. Yes, he sells a rebounder of his own design but he's the best source of information regarding why you should bounce. Everyone else just repeats it while adding their own, unique "ideas", much of which is misinformation and contradictory to the mix.

Hall's is literally doing the research and conveying the information very well. He sort of looks and sounds like a huckster and that's because he's the very sort of man that frauds and con men IMITATE but he knows the science and is working with doctors to explore and discover the effects. He's literally saving lives and keeping people from having to go to nursing homes. Namely, me.

Astragalus Root
Posted by Mama To Many (Tnm) on 11/08/2017

I have been giving my 19 year old son astragalus root capsules daily for a couple of months. He started college (a whole new set of germs to contend with), he had to get a bunch of vaccines (because he is studying to be an EMT), and it is cold and flu season and he doesn't have time to be sick.

So far so good. He has been quite healthy and seems to be avoiding sickness though he is often around it. But I will give further observations in a few more months. (I decided on astragalus root because it seemed to keep one of my small children well though the whole family was sick a few years ago. I had been giving it to him regularly to prevent lyme disease after a nasty tick bite. He didn't get Lyme disease or anything else that fall! )

Of interest is that he was stung by a wasp yesterday. Normally he reacts pretty badly to them. However, after the initial sting, he had very little reaction.

I suspect the astragalus root has been helpful to his immune system.

Of course, it won't do to take astragalus root once there is a sting. It is something to use more as a preventative.

My son is a big guy. I give him 2 capsules once or twice a day. (Basically, whenever I cross paths with him I hand him 2 capsules of astragalus! )

Immune system booster, muscle mass increase, 45 min. results. The empirical data out there speaks of your mid gut bacteria encompassing up to 70% of your immune system. L-glutamine amino acid helps mid gut bacteria reproduce and increases the immune response by increasing the sheer volume of the bacteria.

Some of you with chronic broad spectrum antibiotic use have helped destroy your most potent ally in immune system response. The lowly mid gut bacteria..L-glutamine helps create a favorable environment for mid gut bacteria to flourish.

The response to first dose was incredible for me, as within 45 min I was sneezing and blowing snot (chronic allergic rhinitis). As an added bonus I started to gain muscle mass from normal work routine. No body building at all.

I take.1/4 tsp powder 1x day directly in mouth and allow it to mix with saliva and swallow. but you can add to water drink or shake. My impression is its tasteless. Some high end grocery stores (heb market) or online stores or body building storefront will have l-glutamine powder in 2.2 pound containers. This 2.2 pound container has lasted me over a year. Works well with acidophilus lactobacilli and probiotics for bacterial gut imbalance and Magnesium Ascorbate for a full spectrum immune response. I enjoy the benefit of l-glutamine, May it be you will also.

I noticed that I didn't catch a chest cold as I usually would have this winter.

Then I realized it was because I had taken 650 mg quercetin dihydrate daily. Quercetin also gives me energy.

My current capsule has only 250 mg and that might even be enough. Most quercetin products come with bromelain.

A person had really bad chest congestion and they started taking a Quercetin 250 mg tablet that had Ester-C and Bromelain daily and three weeks later their congestion is apparently gone.

For a year or two or more I would try quercetin for any lung or sinus problem like asthma, emphysema, COPD, pneumonia, bronchitis, sinusitis, etc.

The best value of quercetin that I know of is a 400 mg quercetin per capsule dose made by a major brand. It's actually listed as 800 mg quercetin with bromelain but that is for 2 capsules.

Try Echinacea with Goldenseal tincture drops to boost the immune system.

My son at 15 years old was constantly having multiple colds, bronchitis and strep throat. His pediatrician continued giving him many courses of antibiotics. Finally, during a routine visit at my MD Doctor, I asked him about how I could boost my sons immune naturally and he recommended giving him Echinacea w/Goldenseal drops. I bought the drops at the local health food store and gave him 15 drops a day (given in orange juice), for 2 weeks, took two weeks off, and then gave the Echinacea/Golden Seal again for two more weeks. Since doing this he's hasn't been sick once. Great remedy prescribed by a very wise "old school" MD doctor.

Medicinal Mushrooms
Posted by Elisa (Mount Vernon, Ny) on 11/20/2015

Can you give me the name of this mushroom miracle?

EC: Oh dear, sorry about that, I never added the product name in 2012!

It's Host Defense, MyCommunity, Comprehensive Immune Support. See these google images. Still one of my most favorite supplements, but please make sure to buy them from a reputable company (like Amazon directly or iherbs). I think I bought a fake batch from an Amazon third party seller 2 years ago.. Normally you should feel better within 10 minutes of taking these mushrooms, but that particular batch did nothing for me and I ended up getting sick a few times that winter season.

Crystal, I beg to differ. It seems to me the body has it's cleaning system which we just have to keep running well. At a recent colonoscopy, they said they had rarely seen such clear intestines. And I never did a colonic etc. And I eat what I feel my body needs, with allowances for a cheat here and there on "junk". I guess in extreme illnesses, helping the body clean itself is called for, but I dunno about it's role in plain, healthy daily living.

Your "recipe for good health" is great, thank you Prioris, although you should really run maintenance cleansing up to twice a year - every 10 -20 years just is NOt enough! You don't get parasites just from pets, parasite eggs live in the dust we inhale and the food we eat - its part of being alive. Hulda Clark recommended parasite, bowel, kidney and liver cleanse once every six months. It really helps if you do it as a group and the results long term are incredible. I also do regular coffee enema, prunes, figs and magnesium powder to ensure my gut is moving everything out of my system well. Even so, always have a professional colonic session before and after liver cleansing. Sometimes, to start you need five sessions colonics to move out bits of compacted matter that have been in your bowel since you were a child. And then six to seven liver cleanses - one a month - until you can see that all the stones are out of your liver. Then you can go on the maintenance program. We are living in a polluted world, not much you can do about it except incorporate cleansing into your life and get used to it as part of your lifestyle, right. I also love diatomaceous earth for in between - great for general maintenance, anti-parasite and anti-candida. Thanks again.

Micronized Beta Glucan, Moducare
Posted by Prioris (Fl, US) on 04/02/2015

After doing more research, here is more information on the subject. Here is a study Vaclav Vetvicka did comparing the various beta glucans.


Here is another link: http://www.betaglucan.org/

Here is a link to a discussion on amazon


Many people tout the Transfer Point Glucan 300 product because of this.

WebMD calls micron beta glucan bunk but that website has always had the lowest credibility from my perspective.

Transfer Point has a lot of positive reviews but so does micronized beta glucan have a lot of positive reviews and very few negative. If micron sized beta glucan did not have much validity, I doubt the product could have so few negative reviews.

Different types seem to work but we need to know which type (how processed) gives the most bang for the buck.

I think the best way to sort out all the different claims is to actually try different types of beta glucan and see if you can figure out which one gives you more bang for the buck.

Most people use it to avoid colds and flu. Others like me need it to help a constantly weakened immune system.

Micronized Beta Glucan, Moducare
Posted by Prioris (Fl., US) on 03/26/2015

I haven't personally tried the micronized beta glucan but I ran across it in my research for immune products.

The regular high dose beta glucan has been tounted for the immune system but research has shown it is mostly useless since it doesn't absorb into the body. The form of beta glucan is more important that the quantity. Ideal size should be around 1 micron or less. There are many positive anecdotal reports on it.

There is a product called Moducare that has a lot of research behind it. I have personally tried it and can feel the effect.

It is a low dose product with a 20 to 1 ratio of sterols to sterolin. It's mode of action is balancing the immune system so if you immune is over active, it will lower it and if under active, it will raise it.

Hi Bill. I just wanted to let you know, I have taken your advice and now am taken the Colostrum. There could be a very good chance that I do have leaky gut and I know this helps the leaking gut from the links you provided along with a lot of other stuff it helps. I had to make a order from a company that gives me the best deals, so I was ordering some other stuff and got a brand of Colostrum

that is 1000mg in two capsules (1g) (standardized to 200mg of IgG)
U.S. Grade A
raised without hormones, antibiotics or pesticides
certified kosher, halal, ISO colostrum.

I hope and pray it is as good as the one you recommended. It was normally higher in price than the one you recommended, but on the sale deal I got it about $13.00 a bottle cheaper. It says to take two capsules once or twice daily. I am taking two once daily just for two days so far.

Thank you again for the info and looking out for all of us here on EC.

I am so sorry for the delayed response. Thank you to Bill, Mmsg. I did see the post from Mmsg , but this is the first time I seen the post from Bill on 09-25-14. I guess I took some time off of here. I need to go through sign in and follow my post. I will do that in the future, so that I never miss another response. Also thank you Asa and Bill again for 02-17 and 02-18-15 responses.

I am very careful about reporting what I think is a cure, because so many times I thought I was cured only to have condition flare back up. With that being said, I really do think that I may have almost completely wiped out this skin condition I had. I don't want to call it a name, but will just say I had black specs I could rub out with oils and lotion. I do have an occasional itch, but the specs seem to have disappeared along with the hard granules and white pimples and red scar looking spots.

Here is what I done. I did most of the above that I mentioned in my first post. Two things I added was MSM (methylsulphonylmethane) and orange essential oils internally. The MSM, I took a 1/2 Teaspoon once a day and worked my way up to 3 to 4 times a day for maybe 2 to 3 weeks. I stopped, because I got very worried about what was going on with me. More on that in just a minute. I was watching a youtube video ( David Wolfe ) and he was talking about taking the MSM to dissolve the calcium shells that bacteria and stuff hide behind and then attack them with other stuff to flush them out once the calcium is dissolved. Enter in our own Ted, I read where he had talked about Orange oil to kill out fibers if they existed. I put two and two together and started the orange oil maybe 7 to 10 drops in a glass of water once a day. This is the best my skin on my arms have looked in years. I may not be completely cured, but I am a lot better. This stuff was starting to spread and I was scared and went for it.

Back to MSM I was taking, I can not stress enough what happened to me when I started taking high doses of this. My hair and face got more than oily ( it was like slimy ) I mean a thick goo and it had black specs in it when I would wipe off the goo. I never had any spots or anything on my face only on my arms, this scared me, but I figured it was detox. I eventually stopped the MSM though. Enter the Orange oil and I really started clearing up.

I probably could have cured myself 100% if I would have kept on it, but read somewhere that orange oil could burn your insides and cause you problems. I believe this stuff is or was a bacteria, yeast and parasites. Most looked like black specs, but under my jewelers loop, looked like blue fibers I also saw some things come out that under my loop again looked like a tiny microscopic clear fleas and there where some small flying bugs that would appear around me. I not saying these came from me, but they would appear without an apparent source. this all happened as I was getting better.

The one other thing I did externally. Bought some lye soap, turned it into liquid soap and purchase some Sun citrus burst dish washing liquid. When I would wash, I would squirt several squirts of the lye soap on my wash cloth and add a little of the Sun to it and wash, I also did this for my hair. The Sun says it washes away bacteria on the bottle. I still do this today.

I don't want to give anyone false hope and I don't want to call it a complete cure, but this really made the best improvement out of everything I have tried ( knock on wood ) I also took, like I said the above stuff as in Baking Soda and Borax internally and added a little borax when I turned the lye soap to liquid.

Any way, I have been hesitate to post this info, because I didn't have the gaping wounds and sores that most report. My was crawling itching sensation with granules ( almost like a dry hard pimple) along with some white head pimples and lots of red scar where these things would appear. All on my forearms.

I have rambled long enough now.

Thank you to everyone on here. All of you have truly become like a second family to me.

Hi Rebel...About the single most effective and uncomplicated way to boost or strengthen your immune system is to just supplement high quality colostrum powder two or three times a day(fresh colostrum milk is better and more effective than the powder form but it's hard to get).

Doctors and farmers have known about the immune boosting capabilities of colostrum for decades. Taking colostrum on a daily basis causes a transfer of immunity to many common diseases. This is basically a transfer of immunity from the mother cow to the human taking the colostrum.

Generally, proper colostrum contains up to 50% antibodies from the mother cow. These antibodies are like blueprints for the human immune system which is then able to manufacture these antibodies on its own. Dr Albert Sabin, a French virologist who created the first oral polio vaccine in 1957, actually made his synthetic polio vaccine directly from bovine antibodies in colostrum.

You can read about about bovine colostrum here and you can read the research here. I recommend this brand of colostrum because of its high quality, testing and care of manufacture. Buy the powder and just take it as recommended two or three times a day outside mealtimes as needed.

Once your immune system has recovered and is strong again you can stop taking the colostrum. But, as maintenance, I would thereafter just take colostrum once a year for a month or so to help top up the immune system with antibodies and to keep it strong.

I must also add that supplementing colostrum will have many more beneficial effects(as the links above show) than just boosting your immune system.

Good day Miss Rebel.

Firstly, I admire your determination to find the answer to your health problems in nature. I am a doctor, & in my experience, you are definitely looking in the right direction! "Nature ALWAYS heals given the opportunity".. It does take "2 positive actions to overcome 1 negative condition" (in this case your health problem being the negative condition)...So ..now to solutions. I have found that the following works very nicely for the kidneys:

1. PARSLEY TEA: 1 tablespoon of italian parsley (fresh is best..dried is ok) to a large cup/mug of hot water. Cover mug & let sit 5 mins. Strain & drink 3 cups daily, ..warm is best...cool is fine also

2. CASTOR OIL PACKS/COMPRESSES on the lower back/kidney area 3 nights per week for 4 consecutive weeks. (you will find videos on www.youtube.com describing complete directions for applying the compresses...Heat after application is essential.

3. COLONIC IRRIGATION: A colonic to be taken the day after the 3rd night of castor oil compresses each week for 4 weeks..4 colonics total (u can find a colonic therapy clinic in your area on www.google.com. Last & most definitely not least.."Knowledge is Power"..I recommend you purchase the following book "Foods That Heal" by Dr Bernard Jensen. You will find this wonderful little book online.

Hi Rebel...It seems that your list of daily nutrients is quite large. My own approach to health is to staunchly guard and protect the intestines, liver, kidney and thyroid. Here's a quick list of what I regularly take just to naturally boost my own immune system:

Lugol's Iodine(8 drops 5% LI per day in split doses). I take the full iodine protocol with companion nutrients. Iodine is essential ammunition for the immune system(as hypoiodous acid) and does a heck of alot more for the body besides.

Magnesium Chloride provides chlorides for proper stomach acid strength and good digestion and also provides ammunition for the immune system(as hypochlorous acid). Magnesium is an essential and crucial mineral for the body with many other benefits.

Zinc -- Essential for proper immune system function and for proper digestion. Essential for the thymus gland.

Sea Salt -- Again supplies chlorides and other essential minerals for the immune system.

Niacin/Niacinamide(up to 1000 mgs/day in split doses) -- increases the strength of the immune system by a factor of 2000.

Lysine(1000 mgs taken 3 times per day) -- Ted's remedy against viruses. Strengthens and prepares the immune system against viral attack.

Vitamin C (1000 mgs 3 times a day)-- also provides ammunition for the immune system.

The above is just a short list that strictly helps to benefit the immune system but several of these nutrients have many other further benefits for the body. There are many other herbs that help the immune system, too many to mention, but the above list is fairly cheap, effective and easily available.

I detox mainly by promoting my own production of glutathione -- the body's master detoxer. For this I take ALA, selenium and milk thistle. Occasionally I take chanca piedra to detox my kidneys. I also take a sulfur source supplement -- MSM or DMSO or taurine or cysteine -- to improve the body's detox capability. I also take kelp for alginates specifically to help detox just my intestines. You can also use chlorella and spirulina. I use kelp because of the minerals and it also contains natural iodine as well.

Also, nutrients like colloidal silver, oregano oil, MMS, borax, turps etc are helpful and will certainly act against pathogens but they will do very little to actually improve your own body's immune system performance.

As a sort of by the way, I also alkalize and take humic acid regularly and take turps/castor oil once every two weeks to ensure that my intestines always remains in a healthy state. As I've already said before, many auto-immune diseases actually start in the intestines and that's my reason. Many people are perhaps not aware that the blood/intestines interface is the main battleground for the body's immune system. Pathogens can enter the body via this intestines interface. And if your intestines is already in a poor and heavily infected state, your body's immune system will be at a very low ebb performance-wise and will be incapable of dealing with any further bloodborne or other organ infections in your body. As a result of this immune system stress or weakness, disease will tend to easily take hold and will simply persist or spread throughout your body as a result.

Above all, protect your own immune system.

Rebel, some people fall into the trap of: lemme do as much as I can the fastest I can. I know, I did that.

So what I would advise you is to loosen up: take some stuff one day, then forget about it. Then take other stuff another day, and forget about it. Then on the third day, other stuff. Space it out so you don't get overwhelmed and anxious and "drowned" in all that you are trying to do. LIVE each day!

Hello EC family. I am looking to rebuild my immune system. I believe I will need to start this by getting my liver, colon and kidneys functioning properly.

My problem is the amount of time in the day, I have to take my main herbs and vitamins. Feel free to let me know of anything more important than my current list.

  1. lemon juice and 1/4 tsp baking soda / pinch of borax twice daily. (ph)
  2. natural laxative once daily (colon)
  3. Asparagus extract once daily (kidneys)
  4. milk thistle 100mg, dandelion root 1040mg, and essiac tea twice daily (liver)
  5. Olive leaf extract, Niacinamide at 1000mg twice daily ( kill off super bugs and viruses )
  6. Oil of Oregano 3000mg twice daily ( fungus )
  7. Bromelain 1000mg twice daily ( for Enzymes )
  8. Resveratrol 100mg twice daily ( anti oxidant )
  9. Probiotic 55Billion once daily ( rebuild good gut flora )
  10. MSN 1800mg and Vitamin C crystals 5000mg twice daily ( dissolve calcium shells and build up immune system )
  11. Chinese Chlorella 1000mg 3 times daily ( remove heavy metals )

The problem I have is spacing this out and being able to take at proper times. It is very hard to fit all this in. I also have to be sure not to take the probiotic of vitamin c to close to the baking soda and borax. The Essiac tea also has to be taken on an empty stomach.

I also try to oil pull first thing in morning and brush teeth with Ivory soap and one drop of clove oil. I add coconut oil to cooked foods as well.

Does anyone know of any other conflicts on taking the above other than what I have mentioned. Is there any I should not mix together is what I am asking.

My plans are to:

Oil pull/brush teeth first

Take Essiac tea wait 20 minutes then take dandelion and milk thistle. Eat.

After that I am not sure how to fit the rest into my day.

How to Grow Moringa?

Moringa easily adapts and grows in moderate to tropical regions.

What we do to grow Moringa is (traditional method), Cut a stem of 1-2 metre length from an elder tree. Plant this stem on soil and apply COW DUNG on the top cut portion of the stem. New moringa tree will branch out in 2 - 3 weeks.

Recently, farmers use hybrid seeds that grows as a 2 meters tall moringa tree in 6 months. Only from this hybrid varieties you get the moringa leaf powder sold in north america.

Good Health

Posted by Ed2010 (Canada) on 07/29/2014

Hi Jeanette, Moringa grows widely in South India. It is a garden Tree which grows up to 30 ft high. The fruit is called DRUM STICK.

We used to cook moringa leaves and have it along with fish curry, sambar, rasam. The fruit Drum Stick is cooked in sambar makes the sambar very flavourful. Even the flower is edible.

Moringa is very nutritious, contains Iron, Vitamin A, Calcium, Phosphorus, Magnesium, Amino Acids, Vitamin B complex so it can be a natural immune booster. You can equate Moringa with Materna. Moringa gives complete nutrition for pregnant and lactating mothers.

Moringa is very very common tree in south India, moringa grows in every house hold garden (before 2000, not anymore in metro cities). We don't buy moringa (or at least I did not buy when I was in india). You can just walk into the garden and pluck the leaves from the tree. Wash it and use it for cooking. In fact, if you need moringa leaves your neighbor will love to share it with you from his/her garden.

The leaves, flowers, fruit are edible and used for cooking. If you make a small cut on the bark, the tree secretes a resin that can be used as glue.

During my childhood I used to collect this resin boil in water and make my own glue ( heavenly those days)

It is surprising that what we got free and what we shared for free is sold for $25 - for 60 capsules approx Indian Rupees Rs 1300.

Know this important information about Moringa.

Moringa Flowers - works for Erectile Dysfunction and Infertility (similar to horny goat weed).

There are moringa flowers cooking recipes, search in google.

Leaves - mostly used for cooking. Also, you can grind the raw leaves and make a paste apply as a face mask and cleanse with water. Natural facial.

Leaves - used in cooking as dish with curry.

Drum Stick - used in cooking in variety of recipes.

To get the nutritional benefits from Moringa Leaves you have to take atlteast 2 tsp of powder. Good health

Hi Jeanette,

I came across Moringa on Dr. Mercola's website about two months ago and recognized it as a vegetable I grew up eating in India. The leaves and the green pods are cooked into very tasty dishes indeed! Ayurveda says Moringa can be used as a preventive in 300 diseases and can be used to treat high BP, diabetes, anemia, depression, and weight loss. Indian grocery stores often carry the green pods for a few weeks during the summer and also year around in the freezer section. But no chance of getting the leaves, at least not on the East coast. So I ordered organic moringa powder from Amazon and have been using a tea spoon in my daily green smoothie. I started off slow, just 1/4 tsp at first and gradually built it to one tsp. I definitely noticed it's cleansing effects and an increase in energy. It also seems to keep me feeling full. Anyway, it's impressive array of nutritional qualities - high in amino acids, protein, and essential minerals such as magnesium, potassium, and calcium, not to mention high fiber, alone earns it a place in my daily diet. It also seems to be helping me lose weight but I am not sure if that is solely due to Moringa alone. I have also started taking borax, as per Bill's protocol, and it's been immensely beneficial. Hope this helps!

Posted by Jeanette (Sc, US) on 07/24/2014

I just heard about a natural immune booster called Moringa made from an African tree. It is loaded with an extremely high concentration of vitamins, minerals, proteins, amino-acids and anti-oxidants. Has anyone used this?

Here is a study showing what some of us here at EC have known and experienced for quite a while!

HI U GOOD PEOPLE DOIN, My friend told the medical folks at Erlanger Hospital in Chattanooga that he is not leaving until they find out what was wrong with him. Sounds good, but that will never happen when your problem is one that they do not recognize. Parasites is a zero for our traditional medical folks. They don't know how to treat it and don't know whether to sheet or go blind.

I have given up on my friend as he will only listen to Allopathic doctors. What all you trashy folks need to understand on EC is that you are smarter n normal folks. You will listen. That is a backhanded compliment if you have never encounter one of those.

The recipe for good health is pretty straight forward

1) Avoiding vaccines - this is the biggest since undoing this damage is nearly impossible.

2) Minimize processed foods

3) Clean up your water supple e.g. fluoride filters. Take borax on occasion to help remove fluoride from body.

4) Genetic warfare. Minimize GMO foods - not easy

5) Realize that many food nutrients that were plentiful in the food supply have been removed or greatly lessened. One may need to supplement.

6) Watch out for anything containing mercury and other toxins. dental mercury is the biggest conduit.

7) Just like changing the oil in a car, doing the various cleanses every 10 or 20 years would be a good idea to rejuvenate body.

8) Be aware of the local environment hazards. For instance, if one lives in an environment like a farm where parasites are more prevalent then doing a parasite cleanse with turpentine every year would be a good idea.

9) Be aware of future weapons like nanotechnology and how they will be used against you

HI YA'LL, , , , , , , , , , Sad to report that my friend is now in the emergency room of a Chattanooga Hospital. Not going to drag this out, but want to make a point. When I read Hulda Clark's book some 10 years ago in which she stated that the root cause of all disease is parasites. She also said that if you have an indoor pet then you have the same parasites that the pet has.

My wife had indoor cats for 44 years of our marriage. What Dr Clark said made sense to me so when her cat died two years later, she said she wanted another cat. My reply was certainly, but for the last 46 years we have had indoor cats, and for the next 46 years we will have out door cats. That was 8 years ago and now she would have it no other way. They get fed twice a day with a measured meal. They love her far more that the indoor cats who had food on a constant basis. I hope we don't have their parasites, but we do have Candida as everyone has.

The two hot topics that is now on EC is Candida overload and Alzheimer's. They should be. What we have learned in our exchanges is that you can treat both for pennies. You just have to get the smarts and we are all helping one another in this endeavor. For my money, I think Candida is the biggie, you keep that in balance and you will have good health. We have all learned that there is no silver bullet. It's a disciplined thing. Candida is a parasite. I also think that Hulda Clark was a great woman and was far ahead of her time.

I request a prayer for my friend, Max. ==OLE ROBERT HENRY===

HI U GOOD PEOPLE , , , , , , , , , , , , , This is a perplexing story, but one that may help some folks. I have a friend who is a hulk of a man at 62 who does hard physical labor and works out at a gym almost daily. I year ago his health started failing and he gave up his bush hogging and ended up desperate. He has gone to 13 doctors and finally found a doctor in Chattanooga who said his problem was H Pylori and Systemic Candida. This doctor also told him that he sees about 3 people a year who have this condition but none a bad and his.

Last week we visited and I reviewed his $10,000 lab work. AYSM? Yep, he is consumed with H Pylori and Candida and his immune system is flat lined, zero. The doctor had him on an Anti-boitic but no Probiotic. AYSM?

I loaned him my parasite Zapper and gave him a 20 Billion Proboitic along with ACV and a Pysillium fiber shake to take daily to remove any die off. Left him with GSE, Borax, organic coffee for enema's and things for mineral baths. Told him to do only one natural anti-fungal at a time. Also explained to him that he had to go slow and only kill off pathogens as he could remove them with the fiber shake. He agreed that the he needs to cease the Anti-biotic, which had killed his good gut flora and his immune system.

It appears he is far worse off than I thought. 4 days later he came down with Herxhimer's reaction and is now sick as a dog. I talked to him today and told him to shut down all my stuff except the probiotics. Now I am convinced that I cannot help him in his state and he must see my integrative doctor if he is to survive.

What I have learned in this health ministry is that you can take a mule to water, but you can't make him drink. That's his decision. Regular folks also don't do reading too good. You best present your case with a video off the internet. That is what I have done. I sent my friend video's I.V. 's concerning Hydrogen Peroxide, Vitamin C and Ultra Violet Blood Irridation. My Doctor does all of these and my friend now must make a decision. I have now involved his sister.

My friend's Doctor did tell him that if he did not get his problem under control then his life would be cut in half. This doctor passed charm school and as most of you know I flunked all that my bosses sent me to. My friend knows I'm not PC so I told him that he did not get his problem under control, then he will soon die. After a year of hell, he agreed.

We got one other Expert involved with this problem. We are all praying.

Camel Milk
Posted by Kathleen (Melbourne) on 08/19/2013

There seems to be a campaign to demonise foods these days, but I object! . What is causing our problems is more to do with what mankind has done to the original foods. Pastuerising milk has made it difficult to digest (damaged enzymes) and homogenising it has enabled the, now tiny, fat particles to enter the bloodstream without proper digestion. What we call wheat, has its own manmade problems. Of course the pesticides and herbicides on all non-organic foods do nothing for our health.

Astragalus Root
Posted by Mesem (Manosque, France) on 05/16/2013

Astragalus Root: I was hoping this plant would help me out as I seem to develope allergic reactions so easily to pollen and whatever in the atmosphere. I took 1,350 mg (weight) astragalus capsule from well known brand and I have been now for unwell 3 days! Upset my digestive system totally and I feel very strange. I have read that this reaction is very rare; for me it was almost immediate. Can anyone tell me how I might take this powdered root without invoking the upset stomach. Have to say that I don't really want to touch it again!

Overuse of Antibacterial Products
Posted by KT (the USA) on 05/14/2013

Something to think about...I have wondered how many are using anti-bacterial soaps or hand sanitizers. Good and bad bacteria are everywhere but if you use these you are not only killing the bad bacteria but the good bacteria that fights it. It seems like the more germ-free and sanitized people are trying to be, ailments and diseases are escalating.

Medicinal Mushrooms
Posted by Deirdre (Atlanta, Ga) on 11/28/2012

Hi everyone! Just wanted to give feedback on medicinal mushrooms for immune support. My mother has been taking an immune support mushroom formula from the health food store for 2 years now and hasn't gotten sick. I am around a lot of children every day at our karate studio and bombarded year-round with viruses galore. I got a nasty virus in October that took a couple of weeks to recover from and a dry cough that lingered for a good month. My usual arsenal of remedies from EC didn't work this time -- h202 inhalation, Ted's aspirin cure and high doses of vitamin c to name a few. After ignoring my mother's suggestions about medicinal mushrooms now for years, I decided to give it a go. I went online to research and found a sustainably produced, immune support multi-mushroom formula with feedback from people who hadn't been sick in 4-6 years. I bought a bottle and it arrived just in time! I could feel another nasty virus kicking in last week and quickly took 2 capsules. Within 20 minutes I was feeling better. It was that fast! I took 2 more in the evening, 2 more in the morning and by the end of the next day, I was 100% back to normal. No symptoms manifested other than a bit of fatigue.

These mushrooms are now at the top of my favorite supplement list! I am taking 2 capsules every day now.

Blessings and Good Health to All!

Deirdre from EC

Master Tonic
Posted by Lisa (Thousand Oaks, Ca, Usa) on 11/24/2012

Hi Everyone, Three days ago I posted the Master Tonic recipe for keeping our immune system strong especially during this time of year and the holiday season when people seem to have colds and flu all around. I wrote it all out but I know many people can be overwhelmed when just reading something like this recipe so I thought I'd give a link to a video of someone actually making it. For some, visual is easier than reading and I think this recipe is worth using. So, here is the link for the Master Tonic:


Best of health to everyone, Lisa

Hi Sue, You're too funny! Well, I can easily eat the garlic cloves since I'm a big fan. I do have to say I got very carried away about a month ago. My husband and I went to one of our very favorite ramen houses where they will serve you a container of raw garlic cloves for free to add to your ramen if you wish. Of course, as usual, I asked for them. They also give you a garlic press with them. I proceeded to press garlic cloves and it just tasted so good, I kept adding more and more. Well, by that night my stomach was a wreck and it lasted well into the next day as well. My intestines hurt so bad I couldn't even eat. Lesson learned!

Anyway, as far as your recipe goes, I don't think it would have gone bad sitting on your countertop as honey is a natural preservative. I do know though, that if preserving garlic cloves in olive oil, that must be refrigerated.

Wishing you the best during this holiday season! Stay healthy Sue! Lisa

After I read your post, I said to myself, "duh, Sue" lol. Thanks, Lisa, will give it another try. After posting the recipe, my daughter reread the instructions and told me that you only leave the garlic/honey on the counter for a couple of days, then put it in the refrigerator. You can leave it for up to a yr. And when you feel yourself "starting to come down with something", eat the garlic cloves along with the honey. We both had to throw our batches out because ours had sat out on the counter for a couple of weeks. They might have been fine, but I thought, wouldn't it be ironic something that was suppose to help us, might make us sick. Lesson learned. "))

Hi Sue, Thanks for sharing your garlic/ honey recipe. I think I'll give that a go. Sounds easy enough and very effective. And just so you know, the Master Tonic recipe I gave is super hot too! I'm sure that's what makes it so effective! But one recommendation is to add it to something so it's getting into your body but not so intense. You could add it to soup broth. I make my own bone broth during the cold months which is recommended by Weston Price protocol. It's very healing and soothing to the stomach. I started doing that after I had my stem cell therapy to support it. Anyway, then you could add the master tonic to it and it would give it a zing! One other recommendation is, after swallowing it down, chase it with a bit of toast with honey on it. Maybe these tips might help so you don't have to throw it out again ;) Best to you, Lisa

Hi Lisa.... Thanks for your formula. I had ran across something similar to yours, but it didn't have the ginger or onions. OMGosh, the stench was so strong and I could only take it a couple of times because it was so hot. I ended up throwing mine out. It was that bad. Your formula sounds way better than mine. "))

My daughter gave me a recipe that she got from her friend that works at a garlic farm. I thought I would post it along with yours. You're suppose to take a tsp at a time.... I don't think it matters how often during the day. Mine is sitting on the counter "curing".

You fill a jar (mason, pickle jar, etc. ) 3/4 full of peeled garlic cloves (my salsa jar took 7 heads of garlic). Then fill half way with honey and the rest of the jar with clean water. Shake gently to mix. Put on lid and on counter for at least a week. Gently roll the jar top to bottom, bottom to top several times every couple of days. Garlic stays in the jar.
