Please don't use DMSO for your eye. DMSO may cause lens changes. DMSO can be used for shingles. You can mix it with Vit C powder or Peroxide and place right on the sores.

So what now? What are we to do with all the contradictory information we have been reading and receiving over the years? It has been all over the map.

Will the jury ever come to a decision?

As far as I am concerned, EarthClinic dot com has become one of the most reliable sources of info in the matter of efficient natural remedies.

I know it is asking a lot, but could an authority figure here, such as Ted who I hope is rapidly regaining in health, help us cut this gordian knot?

Thank you in advance and wishing the best to all.

Coconut Oil for Thyroid Issues

5 out of 5 stars

I am so excited this a.m. I was diagnosed with hypothyroid on Sept. 5,2018. I was prescribed synthroid, and took it for 2 weeks, then stopped as I was feeling awful, worse than when I was diagnosed. I found Earthclinic and read about natural ways to try to even out my numbers. I got onto Coconut Oil for it's iodine, and also started using salt again, but SeaSalt only, and just about one 8th of tsp a day.

I know many of my foods Id added to my diet had iodine as well, so I didnt want to get too much. Easy does it I kept remembering. I got my new, thyroid bloodwork back this a.m. and I'd like to share the pics so I'll try to do that. The first is the before numbers, and the second is the "after". I'm so thrilled and I hope others will try this.

EC: So sorry, your pics did not upload for some reason.

Blackstrap Molasses, Ginger for Spleen Issues

Spleen Inflamation

I am drinking Ginger tea every day, fresh grated, and I fill a pitcher and usually just 2 cups per day in between Breakfast and lunch, then between Lunch and dinner. I have been doing this for over a month and have definitely seen steady improvement from cramp feeling, and even some pain that would wake me at night. I do try to eat smaller meals, and suggested foods. I also use Blackstrap Molasses in my tea both to sweeten it a bit, and BSM also is known to help Spleen issues. I will try to let you know of my progress. I am only feeling a fullness in that area now, and it doesn't hurt anymore when I cough. I did have an upper GI, and an Ultra-sound, which neither that or the bloodwork showed any abnormalities, but I feel it so turned to alternative medicine to help me.

Yes, the speed of your recovery is similar to what I saw once I was using all three components, very fast. So I would say that your results tend to confirm that the combination of all three components at once is more potent than anyone of the three on their own. When I started, I didn't even have all three components selected yet, but in hindsight, the three together appear to be significantly more potent! Although you may feel that the indigo powder is the most potent of the components, I doubt you would have had such a strong response to it had you not also taken the PBE and xylitol too.

By chance, did you happen to take any before pics?

I look forward to your updates!

chobani yogurt the flip loco cocoa kind. Put the blackstrap molasses in it and stir. It blends with the dark chocolate flavor. I know it has sugar in it, but to get it down, it works well. I have also mixed the blackstrap molasses with a little hot coffee first to dilute it, then added coconut oil and cocoa, and it is pretty good. My go to comfort drink.

Apple Cider Vinegar, Cayenne Helping Sore Throat and Lost Voice

ACV, cayenne, honey helps with swollen throat and lost voice

I woke in the night with a swollen throat, mucus, and had lost my voice. Today I have used 2 tbsps ACV, 3/4 tsp cayenne pepper, 1/2 tsp manuka honey (240 MGO) and a dash of salt in a small tumbler of warm water. It's disgusting and burns my throat however I've had almost immediate relief from the pain, and swallowing is easier.

I have sipped then gargled the mixture and will do this again at bedtime.

I'm a huge fan of Earthclinic - your remedies have really helped me in the past. I'm a qualified nutritional therapist, and feel modern medicine has lost its way. I have almost no faith in GPs, it's all about prescriptions and money, pushing medicine that doesn't work in instances like these. Earthclinic is a great forum for remedy sharing.

i will continue with this particular remedy and update on its efficacy in a few days.

Hello Suzie, I have posted at length my success with improving menstrual cycles with the intake of daily organic plant and herb teas. Before I normalised my cycles however, I would nibble some shepherd's purse or eat tsp coconut oil, to stop the menses.

It is great that you've already seen help from the ACV, I would keep with it, it will take more time to assist in long established illnesses. You might look at the ACV and baking soda remedy, this gives more benefits than the ACV alone.

I also read that histamine is the body's warning sign of chronic dehydration, this one rang true because of posts I've read that stated when they drank more water the skin symptoms diminished. Increase your water and mineral intake. Stinging nettle is a natural antihistamine, available in gardens or you can buy capsules.

See watercure for fascinating info.

Best to you

Alex, doctors can sometimes miss fractures on x-rays, I would be applying comfrey (knitbone) salve, and making an infusion to take internally. When I have good supply I consume it daily. Read the comfrey page here on EC for more info on this amazing herb.

I would like to know if you were put on oral steroids for nasal polyp. My father is on steroids for addisons disease (as reverse affect from prolonged use of corticosteroid). I feel his polyps is related to his adrenal insufficiency.

Hi Alex,

I wonder if you could make an appointment with an Orthopedist? You may have a fracture that an x-ray did not make clear. An Ortho would order an MRI to get a better look into the problem. If it is broken, it would not be unusual that you are sensing a difference in the sensation and it would not be all that unusual that you don't know how it happened.

I speak from the experience of having a similar-sounding problem several years ago when my ankle gave me trouble. Our small local hospital did not have an MRI machine, so the doctor simply told me it was not broken. Luckily, my husband advised me to see an Orthopedist, who ordered an MRI, diagnosed the fracture, and put me in the proper boot cast. It healed quickly after that. I hope you will soon find your answer.

Hi Art,

Yes I am using all 3 - the PBE, the Xylitol and the Indigo powder. I received all products on the same day, and began using all 3 simultaneously. It has been 6 days now and two of my patches are 95% clear. The Indigo powder I have is the green powder and the fact that I saw progress overnight leads me to suspect that it was the powder that was primarily responsible for the inroad that was made.

Going forward it will be difficult for me to tease out the relative contributions of the products because of the speed of the progress and the fact that I began them simultaneously. Nevertheless I will continue using all 3. I currently use 4 caps of the PBE daily, and ~15-25 grams of the Xylitol - all dosages spread out. I apply the Indigo 2-3x/day.

There is zero chance I will be relenting. The negative effects of psoriasis have had on my life vs. 10 minutes a day to keep on top of it - it really is a no brainer.

I'm not expecting a reply as no one here ever seems to bother replying. However, in the hopes you might....Did you ever try the DMSO/Hydrogen Peroxide in a nebulizer? And what were the results? And if so, what was the ratio of mixture? I hope I don't die waiting for a reply to this... lol

Try taking iodoral for the next 4-6 weeks before the surgery and you may end up not needing it as iodoral helps dissolve cysts. This happened to a friend of mine.

You're welcome, Luke!

I'm glad it is working out so well for you! It is a potent combination. One thing I have noticed is that hitting it with everything at once seemed most effective. I don't know how severe your condition is, but if you have had it for 20 years, I'm going to guess it is a well entrenched case. Under those circumstances I would remain relentless in going after it until it is gone. Don't give it a chance to gain any ground!

I have no clue if the green powder is effective or not because I have not used it, but please post back to let us know how effective or not effective it is.

You didn't say if you are doing the xylitol also, but if you are, can you determine that it has an additive effect to the PBE?

Please keep us posted on your progress, Luke and thank you for posting your great results!
