Black Cumin oil is the beat all end all for Migraines and many other ailments. You can buy the black seed oil or black Cumin seeds black and black cumin mean the same thing.

There is the one post here on Earth Clinic about the seeds and the lady said her and her mother chew on the seeds. I take the seeds in a table spoon and just smash them w/ another table spoon then just drink water to swallow them. Eat them right off the spoon then make sure to lick the bottom of the other spoon drink at least 12 ounces of water relief is quick like the other woman said. Just a little easier and the seeds don't taste disgusting but they don't taste great either. I have been told by a friend of mine that has been taking Black Cumin for many years if you have the oil or crush the seeds and rub it on you temples and for head this also will help alot.

Soooo many uses for Black Cumin you should research it and be pleasantly surprised.

Thank you for your reply! I am taking borax for mental acuity and bone health. I will update in the future, but I suspect that borax will be a better supplement for me after menopause. In the meantime, I have decided to take a few teaspoons of borax solution just once a week instead of every day. That small amount appears to be enough boron for my body at this time.

Thank you to everyone that has responded, I have really learnt a great deal. My question here is what's the precise measurement of ACV and Bicarbonate of soda to shrinking and possibly eliminating large fibroids? Please an urgent response would be appreciated.

Epsom Salt Poultices for Recurrent Staphylococcal Folliculitis

Sun, 30 Apr 17 09:02:26 -0700

Recurrent Staphylococcal Folliculitis and early superficial wound infections (presumably staphylococcal)

The probability is that any person such as myself who gets occasional occurrences of of these conditions is probably a so-called carrier of staphylococcus aureus which means that these bacteria tend to colonize some part of their body surface. The most commonly studied area for this condition has been the mucosa of the anterior nose and it has been well shown that a full course of oral antibiotics for such organisms can be transiently successful but is followed by recurrent colonization in the anterior nose within 1 to 3 months of treatment. This is the so-called carrier state. Inasmuch it is not permanently curable some interest has been shown in the management of people who are staph carriers. The problem in medical research is that most interest for study is often directed at prescription medications.

Treatments which are nonprescription are rarely studied. Such is the case with magnesium sulfate which is otherwise known as Epsom salt.

Personal experience with spraying the skin surface with Listerine mouthwash solution and then applying a dusting of powdered Epsom salts followed by massaging this into the area of where Listerine has been applied on a once daily basis usually results in resolution of folliculitis within 3 to 7 days.

For what it is worth, I have personally had numerous small skin injuries which have resulted in redness and swelling around such injuries within 1 to 3 days. Traditional prescription treatment of this situation is with oral antibiotics. As a nonprescription alternative I have found that a poultice comprised of a gauze pad covered with aquaphor ointment and then dusted with powdered Epsom salts applied to the wound area on a daily basis as a dressing usually results in decreased redness and swelling around the area of the wound within 3-5 days and if continued usually results in total resolution and wound healing. It is well-known that ointment such as Vaseline or Aquaphor are agents which can successfully transfer into the skin, almost any substance which is mixed with these agents. This makes the use of these agents on gauze or non-adherents wound dressings a reasonable medium with which to apply the Epsom salts to an infected wound area.

I have been unable to find any scientific studies of the use of Epsom salts in the early management of wound infection but based on personal experience feel that it is a subject worthy of study.

Inasmuch as it is nonprescription, it will probably never receive financial backing for formal study.

In reply to Diane (Pompton Lakes, Nj Usa),

I've only used the 500mg capsules taken two at breakfast, 2 at lunch and 2 at dinner for a total of 3 grams per day. This generally works for me within two weeks or less. My friends that have tried it have had pretty much the same experience as me.

Bill Thompson has stated previously that the tea works well also, but I don't remember how much tea he recommended per day. Chanca Piedra can sometimes have a rather strong taste so I avoid the tea in order to avoid the taste.

This is what I and my friends have used to good effect:

Hulda Clark Zapper for Lyme Disease

Lyme can be cured, and the earlier you do so, the better.

The summer before last, my wife found a tick that had been attached to her for some time. then she got the classic bullseye rash of Lyme disease. She became extremely sick, lots of pain all over. She went from her normal high intelligence and being very articulate to being in a fog, unable to think, to remember, to finish a sentence she started.

Being extremely worried, I began searching online. I found where some actress I'd never heard of (not being up on current popular culture) who lived near Lyme, Connecticut, caught Lyme disease. Having had it for about a year and a half, she was in terrible shape. The standard antibiotic treatment had not worked for her. Reluctantly, she allowed a friend to drag her to a chiropractor's office, where she was treated with a Hulda Clark zapper.

Now, we have owned and used one for many years, and it has worked to rid us of various bugs that were going around. In those cases we did the normal protocol. You hold a copper handle with a damp tissue wrapped around it, 1 in each hand (or stick 1 down each sock, to leave your hands free), and connect the 9 volt battery to the zapper. For 7 minutes it runs a very weak DC current through you, which you likely will not feel, or maybe very slightly. Pause 20 minutes, zap again 7 minutes, pause 20 minutes, zap a third time 7 minutes. You are done.

For Lyme the chiropractor had this actress zap for 7 minutes every 20 minutes for 4 hours straight. She felt no different. The next morning she felt great! She was told to come back in 10 days and repeat the above treatment. She did and has been fine ever since. Out of 16 friends she had do this later, the only one who failed to get well had had Lyme for over 10 years, and had too much irreversible damage, alas.

I sat my wife down and timed the treatment for her. Next day she felt fine. Repeated 10 days later. She has been fine ever since.

You can buy zappers online. Spend one or two hundred bucks if you want, but we use the $15 kind (it cost 10 originally! ) and it works great. Somebody bench-tested one of those, and it fit Hulda Clark's original parameters the best of all, anyway. Or look up the plans and make your own, if you have the skills. The first one we owned was made by a friend of a friend, and it's circuit board was set in a tupperware container!

Dear Mama and ORH,

Of all the Earth Clinic posters, yours' bring me the most food for thought. The reason is that I often join in on my husband's business trips and enjoy taking walks through unfamiliar cities. You both challenge me to look for plants that can be used as food or medicine. This morning's walk on the Las Vegas Strip did not yield any Mullein or Plantain, but I did find enough Purslane and Dandelion for a salad.

I have surfed for 4 months on the internet to find a cure other than surgery. I am afraid there is none. I have only 1 parathyroid left that is again malfunctioning; primary hyperparathyroidism. It has not been located by spect CT scan or by sestamibi. How difficult is an operation in an are that has been operated on 2 before (once for an adenoma and once for total thyroidectomy due to papillary, follicular cancer, RAI 150miCu)? And also what are the consequences of becoming HYPOparathyroid?

Hello Tom,

In answer to question on how often to use...depends on how long condition has gone on and how severe the outbreak.

Normally, I'd try to use one poultice every other day for a week...then if some success, once a week for a month. If benefiting, I'd do it once a week thereafter for six months. I contend the condition is an infection and infections can go into hiding (virus especially about them online), living in limbo inside our cells. So the continuous use of the CS/DMSO cream poultice must be regular and immediate at any sign of a new outbreak.

You are taking alot of turmeric which you dont need to. Instead buy the curcumin, which is 500x stronger than the turmeric. Curcimin is the actual root extract. its stronger. My daughter is taking it now for her ulcerative colitis.

Phage Therapy for MRSA

Posted by B (Usa) on 04/29/2017
5 out of 5 stars

Phage therapy is the only real way to cure MRSA. Other "remedies" will help to keep the outbreaks under controls, but they will not cure it. There is a large and growing movement among health professionals in the western world to legalize phage therapy, but there is also a lot of resistance because phages can not be patented and patented drugs are part of the business model of western pharmaceutical companies. However, chemical antibiotic therapies stopped working a long time ago and now cause more problems than they solve. It is safe and effective and has been used to treat lots of bacterial infections for almost 100 years. Read about phage therapy. There are many websites that have information.

Dear Robert Henry,

You ask a valid question – what value is learning to identify herbs to city folk? I have asked that to myself.

We have farmer friends who once had someone visit their farm. Our friends offered this young woman some farm fresh eggs. She was rather shocked, ‘Oh…no! I don't eat my eggs right from the chicken. I get them from the store.” I have heard of children raised on fast food chicken nuggets having no clue that chicken meat comes from a walking animal with bones in it!

I think there is value in knowing where things come from, even if you get things from the store. Seeing a picture of a plant or even recognizing it on a roadside and connecting it to health just brings a greater appreciation to life and healing. It puts a face to a name.

Sure most won't be able to forage the plants they see. But maybe they will see it at a grandparent's house or on a hiking trip. And a few just may learn to recognize the herbs and try them out. And then pass along knowledge. So much herbal understanding has been completely lost. Maybe by one person at a time it will be restored.

I remember when I bought my first bags of dried herbs. I labeled each one with what it might be used for. It was a complete mystery and not a little overwhelming. I lived in a townhouse. I never imagined living in the sticks as I do now. Over the decades I have tried so many things and learn just a little more each time. I love to read about herbs and experiment with them.

I just recently reorganized my herb cabinet. I got rid of some old herbs that have been around too long. I gave some to the chickens. My son is giving some old red raspberry leaf to his goat who just had triplets. She has so much milk that he has to milk her out a bit even with her feeding 3 babies. He thinks it is the red raspberry leaf. It is good for milk supply among many other things.

Yes, I recall our discussion about poke. The poke is coming up around my place. I think of it as a friend when I see the little plants. It is like they have a secret – so much healing if we would take the time to learn.
