Hi Danielle -

Anyone reading up on Sjorgren's might want to consider the AIP diet - especially if their symptoms are overwhelming. If you're not ready for that much change, I was surprised not to see (and I could have missed it) the old wives' tale of giving up Nightshades. (Potato, tomato, peppers, eggplant). I was diagnosed with Sjorgrens after I had whooping cough in 2016. I sort of ignored it because the treatments were annoying and the symptoms were manageable. But by November 2018 I realised I was in fact overwhelmed with symptoms and that something had to change. I followed the AIP diet and started taking supplements - probiotics, fish oil - just everything. I got my hair tested and found that I had a chronic shortage of molydenum and started taking supplements. I got as much sugar out of my life that I could. I learned to meditate. I gave up alcohol for six months and then only went back to an occasional glass of wine.

Update: Honey does not increase your sugar levels. I am diabetic. Also, I have built tophi(accumulation of uric crystals) on top of my both feet in a 1 inch x 1 inch area. This had caused localized swelling. I used a cold patch 2 to 3 times a day . The swelling reduced. I am still continuing to use 4 tablespoons of ACV with 1 teaspoon of honey and 1/2 teaspoon of Baking Soda 3 times a day. Just got my blood work for Uric acid and it has dropped from 10 mg/dL to 5 mg/dL. Target now is to bring it down to 3.5 mg/dL . I hope this info helps.

No Starch Diet for Asthma

My asthma completely disappeared when I followed a No Starch Diet (which I did for about 10 years) to treat my autoimmune disease Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS). A bunch of other immune problems also eased eg iritis, dermatitis, and also peripheral joint inflammation not directly associated with AS.

The No Starch Diet is comparable to Paleo, but a bit stricter:

- No grains

- No dairy

- No legumes, potatoes, yams as all are starchy

- Yes: meat, fish

- Yes: walnuts, hazelnuts, pecans, brazil nuts ..

- Yes: carrots, cauliflower, cucumber, lettuce, tomato

- Yes: most fruit .. except no to banana and stone fruits

After eating Natto (Japanese cultured soy beans) I was able to resume eating starchy foods without the asthma recurring (except curiously have to avoid peanuts, and not too much cheese). Only in extreme conditions did the asthma return eg a cold causing me to cough a lot and then maybe some asthma until the cold abated.

Hi Dia and everyone interested in the herbal treatment mentioned above. I am an acupuncturist and herbalist. I am treating a patient with PMR now. The way Chinese herbal formulas work is that it's different for everyone, even if the disease is the same. An East Asian practitioner will look at why this disease happened for you specifically and what other symptoms beyond the PMR may be present and contributing to the lack of healing. Chinese herbs can be powerful and, if used improperly, have serious side effects. Always consult a trained professional.

Borax and Estradiol

I have a couple of questions about using borax for arthritis. I know it raises estradiol in women. I use natural progesterone, estriol, and estradiol creams. I have lessened the doses of estriol and estradiol since using the borax but worry it may still be raising estrogen too high. Maybe the progesterone helps offset that. I also wonder if taking borax without natural progesterone could raise the chance of getting breast cancer in women.

  Niacin for Cysts

Niacin seems to work for me. Thank you. Once off birth control pills and in menopause I started getting cysts on arms face back of thighs that refused to heal. Used steristrips for healing, calamine seemed to help some. Careful with contamination calamine.

Also tried spirolactone for1 year no help. No acne topical, no oral or topical antibiotics worked, gluten free 1 year no worked. Dermatologist two visits in 5 years only shame you. So I have used oral niacin 2x 500mg per day and it has prevented cysts. it did not help healing the existing one sore I had but did prevent new ones.

As a scientist, I am trying to figure out how niacin works for my skin. I am in great health otherwise_ athletic and real food. Are the sores a result of pellagra? Any thoughts?

Lufenuron clears up morgellons, because it kills candida and fungus infections. It also eliminates fleas in dogs and cats, because it breaks down the chitin which occurs in both insect and fungus as their protective shells!

  Apple Cider Vinegar for UTI in Cats

Regarding water ... I mix the minimum (in cool weather) / more than the minimum amount (in hot weather) with my cat's dry (species specific) food, every meal. I also give Coconut oil when they show signs of illness (many times it corrects the problem, but there have been times of injury when it didn't & I took them to the vet). I also use C.O. reg. to prevent or move hairballs, as it's more effective than any other remedy I've tried, & mine LOVE it (except 1 that gets it put on his paw to lick off)! It works *great* for so many things, & they don't want to settle down at night until they've had their C.O.! I've also read that Coconut *water* is very useful for human UTIs.... Just thought I'd share.

Going on the assumption that you have sciatica.

A good quality soft ice pack applied to the lower spine down to the top of your crack will quickly lower the inflammation level which will then allow you to do the multitude of stretches seen on YouTube for sciatica. Repeated ice pack applications will be additive. Here is a link to an assortment of soft ice packs :,aps,226&ref=nb_sb_noss_1

Here is a link to an assortment of stretches for sciatica. Just scroll through this list until you find one that interests you :

Magnesium oil spray (mag oil) applied to the area of pain will also be additive pain relief and use this same spray applied over the the entire stomach area to improve constipation. It easily passes through the skin and gets to the intestinal tract to help decrease constipation issues.

Here is a link to a typical mag oil spray :,aps,221&sr=8-6

Good luck and come back and let us know how this works out for you.

Dear MrE94,

My first thought is to get some magnesium. It may help the pain and it should help the constipation. Natural Calm is my favorite magnesium supplement.

Have you tried a chiropractor or physical therapist? Working on your posture and exercises to stretch tight muscles can make a big difference.

I too have found that squishy furniture aggravates my sciatica. So does a bad bed.

Sitting cross legged on the floor for 10 minutes a day helps me.

Hopewell Oils sells a combination for sciatic that has cistus and peppermint in it. It has been helpful to me in the past.

Stopain is an over the counter roll on with a lot of menthol that I love for any type of pain in the back.

Unfortunately, sugar aggravates most pain in me.

Keep reading on this site; there are so many remedies that people have found to work for them!

Vitamin E and Quercitin Cream for Lichen Sclerosus

After years of steroid use and skin being worse. I recently tried a compound of 3% vitamin E with 1% Quercetin cream and it's worked beautifully. My skin was in such poor shape and painful and has been healing great. I've also used Vaseline with the fissures, but the quercetin has been healing my skin up and helps with inflammation

Sciatic Pain With Constipation

Sciatic Pain or Piriformus with Constipation

Hi everyone. I've been recently dealing with some hip and leg pain. Usually starts in the butt area and runs down the back of my leg. It usually just aches or pinches for a day or 2 then goes away. During the few days it gets really sore to sit, oddly hurts more when I sit on soft couches than hard chairs, and when it gets really bad, hurts to walk. Also everytime it is acting up I get constipated, and laxatives makes it hurt more. Sometimes I get foul smelling gas however I have some tablets that help with that.

Recently the pain has been sticking around longer and swapping legs. I've been to a doctor who couldn't find anything physically wrong with me, (they did a ultrasound and an xray), they believe it sounds like sciatica, he said they could do more tests to decide if an operation is needed, however he also dismissed it as not being serious because it goes away, (he said most people have it for months and months on end with no break), and to only consider the operation when it gets worse.

I am looking to find a different doctor for a second opinion before I rush off and do anything like an operation. I'm a big believer in our food can be medicine, I've tried Ginger, Tumeric, Peppermint, Apple Cider Vinegar, Bicarb, Ashwaganda and St Joseph's Wart however nothing is really helping the pain, not even painkillers. I thought I'd ask here in case anyone else has experienced the same thing and found anything that helps.
