Taurine for Tinnitus

I developed tinnitus over a few months, and nothing seemed to help it. I I took a little powdered taurine I had sitting around, along with my morning pick-me-up supplements. I seemed to noticed a near-instant relief of the ear's ringing volume I've had all summer. I then looked it up and saw, indeed, there is research backing Taurine for tinnitus. It may be coincidental that the ringing started for me after I cut back a good bit this Summer on (taurine-containing) energy drinks.

You can't use Apple Cider Vinegar for such thing. U wash your mouth with salt water and water or if you have infection or inflammation, you can drink some colloidal silver or spray some onto the teeth or gum.

Apple cider vinegar is acidic and its best to take it during the day and not at night unless you thoroughly rid the mouth of the residue.

The Negative Side Effects of MSM​

I used MSM for several weeks. Though I was very pleased with having thicker, more lustrous hair, stronger nails, No arthritis pain and increased energy, I couldn't help but notice that I gained 14 pounds!! After continued use, I became an emotional mess, along with fatigue as opposed to energy. I stopped for a week and the weight is dropping. I want the beautiful, skin, hair and nails to continue. Is there a comparable supplement?

Magnesium Citrate Doing Wonders for Constipation, What About Long Term Use?

As far back as I can remember, I have always been someone who only had two-three bowel movements per week. When I was pregnant with my first, I had horrible constipation and nothing seemed to work. I ended up with hemorrhoids. About four or five years ago someone mentioned trying magnesium for regularity. It has worked wonders for me and helped me to have a daily BM. I recently went to my annual physical and asked my doctor who knows I have been taking magnesium for years if it was okay that I have been using it long-term. For some reason they had in my charts that I was using the oxide version. He recommended I try stool softeners or some of the other OTC methods you see commercials for. Well, I have tried three stool softeners a day for the past several days and have only had two BM and now have hemorrhoids again. I have blood work done every year and everything always is great. I am thinking I should just go back to what was working for me.

Anyone else using mag. citrate long-term without any long-term complications? The doctor told me that the dose that is normal for prescribing is 1.7g and I am only taking 400mg every night.

Actually, bleach is a base, not an acid, so it makes sense to de-acidify the skin that way. Maybe baking soda is a gentler alternative? Don't know if it would be as effective though. I haven't tried either, but I have some pimple-shaped bumps appearing that I'm afraid might be mrsa.

Angelina from Macedonia

Good job on the blood sugar, does he take any supplements? I would recommend a listen and look to Joel Wallach's Dead Doctors Don't Lie and Somebody Needs to Go To Jail on Youtube, AND Dead Athlete's Don't Lie also on Youtube, the point of athletes is that if exercise were the answer to all our problems our professional athletes should live to 100 and they die young too. Wallach is a verterinary pathologist and has done 26,000 necropsies on multiple species and 3000 autopsies on humans, and has figured out that all our problems are nutrient deficiencies. He has done a lot of research and has been a zoo vet and worked with Marlin Perkins in Africa with the rhinos and elephants. He switched to humans when the research culture began to blackball him for proving cystic fibrosis was selenium deficiency and not genetic. He furthered his research on that and proved Keshan's disease was selenium deficiency and not genetic. He studied the centenarian cultures and has found they all had settled in areas with 60-72 minerals in the soils of glacial melt that they used for irrigation. Lower land centenarian individuals fertilized their gardens with wood ashes (trees bringing up more minerals from their deep roots.) There is a Wallach Encyclopedia that someone went through the trouble to transcribe and compile excerpts from Wallach's talks by subject. Just Google it. Kingmakers hosts it. Now the point is the nutrients- you don't have to buy from Youngevity and FINALLY we have some supplement manufacturers that have come up with formulas that surpass his. I use source of Life Gold, but there are others now, and I found a great 60 mineral liquid cheaper and more concentrated than his Majestic minerals. (Iherb, concentrace I think). The point is we can shop around now and there are some good options out there. I relied on kelp meal for years until I finally read in one of Wallach's books that kelp didn't have enough minerals either, except iodine. The Japanese eat 28 lbs a year of kelp and generally 80 is their life span. (he looks for the magic number 100). So start with his youtube videos, he's interesting and fun, you won't get bored. Mercola dot com also has some great archives, he interviews a lot of cutting edge doctors that are generous to share their knowledge, Stephanie Seneff is one of my favorite interviews on mercola's site- She pointed out the importance of sulphur, which is easily vaporized off with cooking. ALL the nutrients are important and they all do important things. This site is great to see how different people have found solutions, and all are worthwhile. Ted is wonderful, I am glad to see he is recovered from his stroke that worried us all so. So keep learning and it's not enough to stay away from the wrong foods and eat the right foods, but know if the minerals are lacking in the soil, it will be lacking in the food. Look up soilminerals dot com for some of the things minerals do to support plants and us. Example- if the soil is selenium deficient (very common out west) the plants will be unable to MAKE vitamin E, so there is that connection. The plants need the minerals to make the vitamins and they make the vitamins for us and the animals.

HI U KOY,,,,,,,,, flirted with oral EDTA CHELATION some 12 years ago, but eventually opted for the IV's as they are double blind tested and do work. Stopped the preventive IV's 7 years ago and last year my heart started acting up for the first time in my life. Got back doing the IV's along with a new Vit K-2 protocol. I am now working 5 to 7 hours a day in our garden. Six months ago I could not work one hour. Chelation removes heavy metals and helps clean out your blood vessels. The Vit K-2 protocol removes the excess calcium in your blood and deposits it in your bones, where it should be.

Know oral chelation works over time, but if you are in trouble like I was, I suggest doing the IV's.

Hi Yola...Thanks for you're emails and I'm sorry to hear that you're having such a hard time. My apologies also for not emailing or posting sooner on EC, but I've been building my new house in the Cebu provinces. It's taken us 14 months to build the house and for the last 7 months we've been living in the new house amongst all the constant noises from sawing, drilling, tile cutters, metal-cutters, hammering etc. During this time it really was impossible to concentrate or do anything!! So my humble apologies for not replying or responding to you much sooner.

I've read all your posts on EC and it would seem that you may have more than just a systemic candida problem. The first thing you should do is start taking the Anti-Candida Protocol. The key ingredients that you must take are : Lugol's Iodine, Borax, Gum Turpentine and Alkalizing Remedies in this protocol. There are also some powerful and easy-to-take Alkalizing Combos at the end of the protocol article. Please do not ignore them -- they are very useful and easy to take.

I also have some further suspicions concerning your candida or aspergillus problem. You mention also that you suffer from serious skin inflammation problems. So my question to you is: Do you have a mold problem in your apartment or house? If you do have significant black mold(Aspergillus niger) problems then you must get rid of that problem in your home or you will not be able to cure yourself of your current problems(which might have been caused by Aspergillus and mold in the first place). If you're not sure about the black mold in your home -- please get it checked out by professionals. Skin problems or problems with scalp and lungs is a strong indicator that you might have black mold spores in your home. By the way, the treatment for Aspergillus fungal infection is no different to treating yourself for a systemic candida problem.

Here's how you should take the Anti-Candida Protocol....As a precaution against a massive and unpleasant Herx reaction, when you start the protocol you should start taking each of the major ingredients one by one. For instance just start by taking just the Lugol's Iodine and finding the dose that you're happiest with. Then move on to the next major protocol nutrient and do the same, one by one. If you get a healing crisis or Herx caused by any of the major ingredients then you should reduce the dosage appropriately to reduce the Herx reaction. Whatever you do, please don't stop the protocol. And after a few weeks or months on low doses, try raising the dosage until you achieve the recommended protocol dosages for all the primary protocol ingredient and stay on it until you are healed.

You also mentioned that you have arthritis. Well the waste products and poisons produced by both candida or gut parasites is probably the cause of your RA. Borax is the ultimate fungal killer in my opinion. And it is essential for bone developement, it kills mycoplasma bacteria(which can also cause arthritis) and it is one of the few natural minerals that that will detox Fluorine out of your body safely. You also mentioned that your arthritis comes and goes. If that's the case your RA might be caused by poisons from parasites in your intestines. If your serious arthritic flare ups occur on the full moon then that would confirm it. The larger intestinal parasites always tend to breed and reproduce on the full moon. And when they breed they release even more poisons which causes all the gut problems and flare ups.

You also mentioned Lyme problems. If that's still a problem then you should go over to John Buhner's website and take his protocol for Lyme which isn't too complicated. His website is here. Although it's a lengthy protocol, his protocols are very effective against Lyme. You could also have a look at Ted from Bangkok's remedies for Lyme - they are also first rate. See Ted's Lyme Remedies on EC.

Lastly, because of your serious skin problems, I think it would help you to have a special spa bath once a week. Add the following ingredients to the bathwater.

1/4 cup of borax.

1/2 cup sodium Bicarbonate powder(Arm & Hammer brand is fine)

1/2 cup Magnesium chloride flakes(Ancient Minerals brand)

Fill 1/2 a whisky shot glass with pure gum turpentine.

If you have Lyme or skin infections then this spa bath will be very healing because it should disinfect any infections in your skin. Also be warned that if you have Lyme then, after the special bath, the Borellia in your skin will do their best to leave your body by the quickest exit. So you might get some creepy crawly sensations in your skin after taking this bath.

Lastly, don't be afraid to come back and tell us how things are going with the the Anti-Candida protocol. I'm not sure I've covered everything for you, so don't be afraid to come back and ask here on EC whenever you have that need.

Wayne, I can only speak to asthma but, here are are some things I certainl would all together..... if you want to do a complete turnaround.

1. Stop all sugar. Very inflammatory

2. Take a vegetable based vit d with k2 drops a couple times a day (Vit D is a steroid).

3. Drink a couple glasses of green juice daily. Kale, spinach, celery.

4. Take magesium l-threonate to calm the system

5. 1 tsp of nigella sativa, black seed oil, 2x a day to keep your lungs clear.

This is what I do daily. Haven't had an asthma attack in 2 years.


Lecithin for Herpes

Lecithin cures herpes. Get a bottle of soft capsules. They are large, take three a day, three times a day. You will never have an outbreak again. I say soft capsules because the liquid is thick and difficult to get down. Liquid is fine if you can take it. Just go buy lecithin in whatever form you want at your local health food store and take it daily. There's no magic formula of what brand or pill as opposed to liquid. Take it until you don't have an outbreak then take it a bit longer. There's an old post here on earthclinic about lecithin curing herpes. Do some research and find it. I had near continuous outbreaks until I started lecithin and I had tried everything out there. Lecithin works! I can't stress it enough. It will set you free. Then go tell everyone you know who suffers.

Mama's DIY Probiotic Yogurt

I got a bee in my bonnet to make my own yogurt. I was a little intimidated about it but found some easy recipes online and it worked out the first time. (This means it must be easy. Just today I botched 2 attempts at making rice.)

I am starting with raw milk that we are able to obtain locally, but milk from the store will work just fine.

I am now making 2 gallons a week as my family is more likely to eat yogurt than drink milk.

I start by pouring my milk into a stainless steel pot and heating it to 180*. (I am using a meat thermometer to do this. A digital would be handy, but my thermometer is just fine.)

Then I let the milk cool to 115* on the counter. Once it is at 115* I add 1 Tablespoon of already make yogurt per quart of warm milk. (For 2 gallons I am adding a cup of yogurt.)

I mix that yogurt in and pour the milk/yogurt mixture into quart, gallon or half gallon canning jars and put it into my oven with the light on. I bought a 75 watt appliance bulb (which really only puts off the heat of what a 60 watt bulb used to put out.)

I leave it in the oven (no additional heat, just a bit of warmth from the light bulb) for 12-24 hours. I pour off the whey and voila! Yogurt!

One website suggested a cooler instead of an oven. You would keep it warm by putting the jars into a warm water bath (hot tap water) in the cooler for 6-12 hours.

I like the yogurt unsweetened and add chopped almonds and blueberries or chocolate chips.

My husband likes it with honey. Adding honey and a bit of lemon extract is really tasty.

I used the Fage brand of yogurt from the store because I like the collection of probiotics that it contains. After the first batch, you can use your own yogurt to start the next batch, but may need to restart with store bought yogurt now and then.

I love the homemade yogurt. It is so creamy and doesn't contain chemicals whose names I can't pronounce. It contains no artificial sweeteners (which many yogurts hide in them! ) No artificial colors. I have read about mixing in gelatin along with the yogurt when the temp. reaches 115* but I haven't done that yet. I like finding ways to add gelatin in to foods but usually forget to do that.

DIY yogurt has provided a probiotic food source that I and my family like a lot.

Castor Oil for Benign Tumors

I had ongoing pain in my right knee. It was diagnosed by an orthopedic surgeon as pigmented villonodular synovitis (a non malignant tumor). I was told there was no real cure. He could do surgery, but it may or may not take away the pain, and if it did, it probably wouldn't help for long as there was a good chance the tumor would come back within a short period of time.

I was then sent to a second orthopedic surgeon, one who specializes in tumors. He confirmed the diagnosis, and I was told essentially the same thing. He said he could do the surgery but it would be messy, a lot of blood, I would come home with drains in my leg, and again, no guarantee of any success. We mutually decided against surgery. He gave me some pain pills and sent me on my way.

I started doing some research online. Somewhere I read about someone who had used castor oil effectively for a tumor. I decided to give it a try.

I began wrapping my knee in castor oil packs at night when I went to bed. After a few days that seemed too messy, so I transitioned into massaging it into my knee for 15 or 20 minutes each night before I went to bed.

Within a day or two, the pain began to diminish. Within two weeks it was significantly better. I use kinesiology muscle testing on myself, and after one month of daily use, my testing indicated I was done with the castor oil. My knee felt so much better.

A week later at a follow-up appointment with the tumor specialist, he confirmed that to his examination, the tumor had shrunk significantly. He said, “Whatever you're doing, keep it up." He had me come back in another four weeks for a further check up. At that time he said he could detect no signs of the tumor anymore, and he discharged me from his care.

I am sold on castor oil. For the cost of 1/2 bottle of organic, cold-pressed castor oil and some effort on my part, I've got my knee back.

Now I am trying it on some internal scar tissue. I've been using it every night for about six weeks, and I do think I notice a decrease in the scar tissue. This seems to be healing slower than the tumor in my knee did. But I will keep at it and be persistent because now I know how powerful this oil is—at least for me.
