Hi Loraine,

Headache and heartburn are two of the most common side effects of Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA).

You can see if your body adjusts to it and the headaches go away with continued use or you can consider another popular and potent antioxidant such as N Acetyl Cysteine (NAC).


 Re: Borax and Breastfeeding - Safe?

8 hours ago
Posted by Mama to Many (TN) on 12/01/2021

Dear Julia,

Personally, I would have been comfortable taking small amounts of borax in my breastfeeding days. The typical dose for women is 1/8 t. in a glass of water, I think 5 days a week. But because borax can affect hormones, and it affects different people differently, I would probably do half of the women's dose. (1/16 teaspoon in a glass of water 5 days a week) and keep an eye out for any side effects. Because you are aiming to get the boron that is in the borax, another option would be a vitamin that contains boron.

Pregnancy and then carrying a baby around really does a number on the hips. A good chiropractor or physical therapist is essential for all women during this season of life, in my opinion. I have less hip pain now in my 50's than I did with one of my pregnancies (16 years ago), when I was using a cane. So, there is hope.

I do find, unfortunately, that sugar aggravates my arthritis.

Turmeric is also a good anti-inflammatory to consider.

Also, I don't know anything about the brands of borax, other than Mule Team, which I get from the grocery store. I have used it internally, externally, and, of course, for laundry. :)

Borax, also known as sodium borate, sodium tetraborate, or disodium tetraborate.

I looked up the product you mentioned on Amazon.

It's plain old Borax sold in a way to help people who are afraid to take a laundry booster as a supplement to make it easier to take their repackaged borax. Borax in the laundry aisle is less than 8 cents per ounce. their product is $2.88 per ounce. This is 36 TIMES THE PRICE OF BORAX IN THE LAUNDRY AISLE!!!

However, if you spend 36 x the price for their product, it comes in an attractive resealable plastic bag and includes free shipping!!

!A box of Borax is 65 oz. or 1.842 kilograms and costs about $5 in the laundry aisle. The other brand sells 1 kilo for $74.99 or 2 kilos for $129.99! So you can buy a box of Borax that weighs just shy of 2 kilos or 1.842 kilograms for $5, or you can buy a full 2 kilograms of their product for $129.99.

That attractive bag and the free shipping is tempting, but I think I will stick with the $5 box of Borax in the laundry aisle at my local grocery store!

My eyes were sore and scratchy this morning, when I woke up, and I used Adrian's Black Tea remedy from 2008 in both eyes, and also mixed some black tea with saline, and used an eye cup and it felt so good! Within minutes, my eyes felt soothed and the whites of my eyes weren't red anymore. This really does work!!

Rice Bran Oil for Dry Skin

Rice Bran Oil. I've personally never come across any oil that my skin drinks up entirely without leaving a greasy after feel - no matter how dry my hands might be.

But it's my elbows that I had problems with - the skin on my elbows would become so dry, that it would crack and become painful, so I instinctively grabbed a jar of aloe vera gel, drop a blob of it in the palm of my hand, then dribbled a tiny bit of Rice Bran Oil in it and blended it together with my finger before massaging it over my elbows.

If one doesn't have any aloe vera gel, then sprinkle water on your elbow first, then apply Rice Bran Oil while the skin is wet and massage in.

I don't know that it's a 'cure', exactly, but it sure does feel lovely and the relief (for me) is instantaneous.

I've been dealing with a bad case of Covid. Home treatment only. I see that BHT gets some good recommendations. One thing I've to check with supplements is if they are safe for good bacteria due to prior problems with gut dysbiosis.

Can anyone answer that for BHT?

This is Dr Mercola's recipe and it works very well.

16 ounces distilled water, 1 tsp Redmond's salt or Celtic sea salt ( NOT table salt), 3/4 tsp 12% food grade hydrogen peroxide. Regular hydrogen peroxide is not recommended.

For each nebulized treatment, add 1 drop Lugol's 5% iodine. It's best to put it into a glass jar for storage like a mason jar with a good seal and keep refrigerated after mixing to prevention decomposition.

I spend 24/7 with my chihuahua and know instantly when something is up. I could tell after he gulped down a treat a little too big that there were remnants stuck in his throat and had all the collapsed trachea symptoms. He had a little but now it was really bad. Anyway they told me olive oil is a good way to soften hard bits of food so I started putting a few teaspoons in his wet food and seriously his 'honking'/snoring is 70% better. Whatever was stuck is now not and it was there for 2 weeks. He never snored before either. Maybe your pom has some food stuck. There's a post on google about eucalpytus oil and showers too that apparently helps.

Hi Rob,

My mother went back to the doctor today. She has a low grade fever so she still has some kind of infection they took urine and blood samples.

I purchased lemons oranges and garlic tonight. I was going to make just orange and lemon peel tea. she did not take any of the grapefruit peel tea I made the other night. She said her mouth has such a better taste now she can't stomach it.

Her pulse Ox was 96 in docs office he said her lungs sound good but she has a terrible cough and feels horrible. They are going to have physical therapy started at her house so her body will not get worse.

I also bought some Coricidin that does not affect blood pressure the one for cough chest congestion and flu.

She says she will take that and ask that I make the orange peel without the lemon because of how bitter it will be also I was going to make the garlic with olive oil for her body

You think I could put a little coconut oil in with the olive oil?

Also the orange peel do I use the whole peel or the white pith? I read on the grapefruit to just use the white underneth the yellow.

Thank you and Stay safe

Hi Sheila,

I'm curious about the science behind your assertion. It does not match my experience of that of friends with alpha gal.

I have not had a vaccine in 50 years and developed alpha gal after a lone star tick bite.

A vegetarian friend who does not get vaccines developed alpha gal.

Another friend who does not get vaccinated and eats meat raised on his farm developed alpha gal.

We are surrounded by woods here and tick borne diseases like Lyme and Alpha gal are common. We had a dog get very ill with Ehrlichia, another tick disease.

I do not have evidence to rule out that additives to meat and vaccines cause alpha gal, but I am certainly convinced by experience and logic that tick bites can cause alpha gal.

I do think that if alpha gal were caused by vaccines and meat and not by ticks that the incidence of alpha gal would be more evenly distributed on the map instead of concentrated in areas that have higher levels of ticks and other tick borne diseases. But that is not the case.

Taking recommended amounts of safely diluted FGHP is good for all of us because levels of oxygen are reduced in today's atmosphere. With all the chemicals and pollutants inside and outside, we need more oxygen to help destroy viruses and bacteria and help us operate at optimal levels.

I am sorry to hear of your distress and will pray for you. I am recovering from Mycotoxicosis (due to Aspergillus and Stachybotrys), of which Aspergillosis is but one symptom, as mold toxicity can be systemic. Mycotoxicosis protocol from environmental doctors usually includes the following items:

1) Colloidal Silver Nasal Spray: as directed on bottle (Mesosilver is best)

2) Libertè plain kefir: 6-8 oz day (grocery store item, better than any expensive probiotic)

3) Seaweed Chips: 1 pack (grocery store/Costco, contain fucoidan and alginate, which remove toxins from body even more effectively than activated charcoals, incl. Bamboo)

4) regular bowel movements are necessary. If you have constipation, Nature's Way Magnesium Complex: 2 500 mg caps day ( Drink at least 8 8-oz glasses of filtered water daily to aid flushing.

5) Epsom Salt baths several times a week: 20 mn soak in hot bath with 1-2 cups Epsom Salt, and 6-12 drops of an antifungal, antiviral, antibacterial essential oil, such as: thyme, oregano, tea tree, Nature's Shield (blend of cinnamon, clove, etc).

6) Herbal teas are excellent: 3 cups a day, brewed strong 5+ mn. Pau d'Arco (add dried orange peel for flavor), Licorice, frozen grated ginger root, green tea, chammomile, milk thistle (whole plant) steeped with local, raw honey as all medicinal constituents are not water soluble. Do not use heat-processed, commercial honey.

7) Infrared Sauna therapy, in small increasing increments as health improves (start with only 5-10 mn, with personal assistance, as it may make you feel dizzy). My doctor wrote a prescription for it, some spas have this type sauna, or portable units can be purchased. Rehydrate and rest following this.

8) follow a "Candida diet" to stop feeding the fungal infection. There's plenty info "out there" on this, but in a nutshell. YES to: healthy proteins like fish, turkey, chicken, walnuts (store nuts in fridge); whole grains, lots of garlic: 1 clove a day plenty of onions. fresh pineapple, berries, veggies, spices such as Turmeric. My doctor told me no to milk, cheese and ice cream until I felt better, but yes to butter and soured dairy such as plain kefir & yogurt, cottage cheese. Avoid sugar, starchy foods, white flour, gluten, yeast, coffee, peanuts, cashews, pistachios, mushrooms, beer.

9) Vitamin and herbal supplements are recommended by all the specialist doctors in varied types and amounts, an overwhelming list which I ended up carefully narrowing down. But basically Vit C, D, Zinc, B-Complex, Multi (ie: Women's One by Rainbow Light), A, E, Fish oil, Oregano oil, Goldenseal, Lysine, Kyolic Candida Cleanse, pure aloe vera juice- you can make it into a tasty drink (below).

The first three I buy in powdered form (from and make a jug of healthy, sweet-tart drink: 2 tsp C, 3 tsp D-Mannose, 1 tsp Zinc, a Big spoonful honey,
All melted with a bit of hot water. Add 1 quart any fruit juice, 1 quart water or plain aloe juice, 1 dropper vanilla stevia, 1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar, 4 drops Lugol's iodine (J.Crow), ginger sometimes (powder or grated frozen). I drink 1 pint a day.

This is not medical advice, but only that which I have gathered- some from physicians, some from herbalists, etc. I tried and found these things to be helpful- thanks be to God. If your condition is severe, there is a highly qualified practioner in Scottsdale, Arizona who may help: Dr. Dean Silver.

This is all I can think of at the moment, but you, dear lady suffering from Aspergillosis sinal infection, can email me at ThistleBee (at)

I don't check this often, so it may take a few days. God bless you.

It's not from ticks, it's from stuff they put in our meats and from vaccines.
