Hyperthyroid With Toxic Nodules

Tue, 24 Jan 17 12:36:51 -0800
Posted by G (On) on 01/24/2017

Hello, I have been dealing with hyperthyroid for about 5 months now rollercoaster ride to say the least. Dizzy and off balance and very weak legs most days, can't work etc . Just was told I have 3 nodules small 2.5mm or less that are all toxic and the only cure would be RAI OR TOTAL removal of my thyroid. Well this scares me to death and am trying to seek advice from anyone on here that has dealt with my same problem in a natural cure or relief type of way before I make a call with my thyroid removal. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks G

Digestive enzymes will help absorb. I started them because of the lack of acid in my stomach. You might try them. All the best to you.

I've suffered with Barretts for 15 or so years now - I'm 62. I've been on PPI's (Omeprazole 20mg) constantly and recently, to my horror, read that they are possibly connected with an increased incidence of dementia (+44%! ) in patients who have been taking it for a long time - they class 2 years as a long time! Last Friday (13th Jan 2017) I took my last Omeprazole and since then I have been taking Aloe Vera Gel twice a day which some friends distribute in the UK. I've also been taking Raw unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar 50-50 with water or neat - if you knock it back quickly and pretend it's scotch! I'm now on day 4 of this holistic approach and am delighted not to be financing 'Big Pharma' any more - saving our NHS! Sleeping is great now and I can do without an extra pillow(s) to prop me up at an angle...

My thinking is a lot clearer as a result and I hope that my body can recover after that 15 year chemical onslaught! Who knows what effects the PPI's have on other areas of physical function...

You really must try this and I'm sure the drug companies are not going to be happy!

My hemochromatosis reading was 2500, ferritan level very high, was having weekly phelabotomies, slowly coming down. Started to eat raw cabbage for a month and level had dropped to 175, still on cabbage and hemo level down to 33, ferriten level where it should be. Feel great now, no more phelabotomies.

Thank you Diane, I too have BMS, like you I feel I do the same, chew on my lip and my tongue seems to rub on my teeth all the time, certainly doesn't help!! Some days it's excruciating, and some days it's bearable, using the baking soda mouth rinse, that helps a bit, also Chewing sugar free gum, helps to moistened the mouth!! Going to try your relaxation remedy. I'd never heard of BMS, it's good to read about other people having the same and how they cope with this awful problem!!! All my doctor can give me is very strong drugs, which I'm not at all willing to take!!! So came online to look for alternative remedies and found this website. Thank you!

Try putting 1/2 teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide in a neti pot of warm filtered water with some sea salt (try a small amount if your irritated) and melted coconut oil (maybe 1/2 ts not finding the amount to add anywhere). All three are excellent at killing the virus effectively!

Ear Infection as Possible Cause For Trigeminal Neuralgia

Hello all fellow Trigeminal Neuralgia sufferers,

Several years ago I began suffering a condition which I now believe to be Trigeminal Neuralgia of the right side of my face and head. The pain comes on slowly but continuously until the pain is unbearable starting from my right front upper jaw to the right side of my nose and sinus, under my right eye and up to my right temple and right ear. I don't cry but my right eye tears and makes me want to cry more. I had actually contemplated suicide even before I had heard this condition called the "suicide disease". I have had broken noses, fractured eye socket etc. (not disfiguring) and have blamed the condition on those injuries but was never sure and I have been to many MDs, specialists and Maxillo Facial surgeons who told me that those injuries could no possibly cause headaches and never even diagnosed the headaches as Trigeminal Neuralgia!

However, we all know most of that but I have discovered another possible cause for our condition which may or may not give you relief that I am surprised that no one that I know of has suggested.

All my life I have had a problem with middle and inner ear infections. Some have been excruciatingly painful, and will let you know it's there and demands urgent treatment, which I'm sure some of you have experienced.

The facial nerve center is in very close proximity to the ear. It is possible that the patient can experience a low grade infection of the middle or inner ear which may only itch a little and not become highly inflamed and the patient may neglect the condition. But my friends let me tell you that it can tear your nerve center a NEW ONE!

So if you have this condition try antibiotic ear drops (I use Locacorten -Vioform) Which needs a prescription but is not so expensive. Lie down or turn the head sideways and use a small amount only until you feel the ear close up. Dampen a small amount of cotton and squeeze out water and place in ouside of the ear so the oil will not soak into the cotton. Use especially at night and leave in until morning and more during the day as needed if possible.

Also keep ears completely dry in shower, lake and ocean with ear plugs if necessary. Alcohol after swimming or showering WILL NOT WORK!

Hope some of you will find relief, and won't hurt to try...

  Re: Dietary Changes for Dupuytrens Contracture

Hi I got duputreyns only in my hands last year. I had radiation therapy for 5 days, break of 8 weeks, then another 5 days. The first 5 days seemed to improve the contraction of the fingers, but the second dose didn`t help at all. My hands are now swollen, painful at times, and my knuckles have become larger (I can`t put on my wedding ring) especially in the morning. I can`t straighten my fingers completely and 2 of the fingers in my right hand are at about 75 degrees off normal.I see some reviews on epigenetic/paleo diets. How many days does it take to notice whether there will be a difference?

You can also add turmeric and a bit of baking soda into coconut oil, that helps as well.

Apple Cider Vinegar, Cayenne for Blood Clots

Cayenne for Blood Clots

I read the book 'Left for dead" two years ago just for information at that moment, however I decided to take cayenne pepper regularly. I bought empty capsules and I filled them up with cayenne pepper, very easy to do. I took them for a while. That was two years ago. Yesterday and today my right leg got very swollen and pulsating pain. Tonight I went to the kitchen and got organic apple cider vinegar in water and took two cayenne pepper capsules with that drink. In less that forty minutes I already felt relief! My leg is better right now. I'm going to sleep and tomorrow I will take more cayenne pepper capsules. That's what I do to increment my consumption of ginger, cinnamon and cayenne pepper for now. Anything that it doesn't have a great flavor I just use capsules! How many capsules? Two or three with each meal, this is food not a medicine, you can take cayenne pepper and apple cider vinegar forever.

I see that this is a rather old conversation but I had to share my story. about 4 months ago I had a sebaceous cyst at the bra line on my left side. It had grown over the years to the size of a 50 cent piece. It never hurt but it looked really bad. The dermatologist diagnosed it so I was not worried about it beyond how it looked. One day it started hurting. And this kept up for a few weeks. when I read the cures on this page, I decided to try tea tree oil on the cyst. While I expected it to diminish, it actually erupted and drained over the course of a week. It has since completely healed. I am grateful I did not have to pay to have it taken care of. Tea tree oil works!

You wouldn't happen to have a copy of that pdf file on the nettles, would you? The link isn't working and I can't seem to access the main site either. :-/ My dog also has BPH (with cysts - does yours have cysts also?) and I'm trying to find things to help him with it. I'm currently using horsetail herb decoction mixed in with his food, but the more the better!

  The Story of Percy Weston

Mon, 23 Jan 17 22:45:31 -0800
Posted by Michael (New Zealand) on 01/23/2017

Well now, gather round and listen up why don't you? We have already looked at how Bruce in New Zealand saved his farm and I am assuming most of you passed my test on the subject of those "Elusive Minerals" that packed up and left in a huff back in the middle of the last century!

These experiments were broadly replicated in Australia where one Percy Weston embarked on a very similar Farming Quest just after the War (WW11).

In summary, his farming experiences led him to believe that many dis - eases have a common origin: man-made over-acidification! (Collectively) WE ARE DOING THIS TO OURSELVES FOLKS! He claimed that modern farming methods are largely to blame. I am old enough to remember DDT and Lindane and other nasties, used to counter mosquitoes and other insect pests. Sad to say we still have insects affecting our crops but what do you know, the insects have become resistant and we have become poisoned. Wasn't it meant to be the other way around? Doh! He set out to figure out a way to cure or reverse a state of an overly-acidic body/acidification which, he noted, seems to particularly plague Western/industrialized/"1st" World Countries, animals and peoples.

Percy Weston claimed that we can reverse this state (good news there) and return our bodies to how they used to be and function, provided we consume more alkaline foods and less acidic ones in our diet. Because these health problems such as Cancer and Arthritis etc., typically take a long time to manifest themselves (they sneak up on us right?) then they may take a long time to reverse and we need to be patient and "stick with it". Being a farmer, he suspected such substances as "super-phosphate", phosphorous, chlorine etc. found in fertilizers to be the culprits. He wished to consume more organics, leafy greens, vegetables and some fruits, Magnesium and Potassium.

Towards the end of his hundred-year life, he perfected "Percy's Powder" to assist with this problem. He believed that Cancer and Arthritis are linked to the health (ill-health) of the SOIL via the medium of our food and drink. There you go! The Answer lies in the Soil. Told you so. Why don't we pay a truck load of attention and consideration to our precious Soils I will never understand? I am an unashamed Advocate on behalf of the SOIL. First our minerals leave the soil and now the soil is becoming degraded and leaving the land. Whoa!

You are welcome to Google him at your leisure and tell your friends (if you have any) about his good works. One man who left his strong Legacy behind. Good on you Percy!

Cheers and thoughts from Down Under,


  Re: MSM Opened Sinus Passages But Causing Cough

Thank you, Earth Clinic. I looked over all the MSM comments, and noticed several people say they were unable to take MSM because of a sulfa allergy, which I also have. This coughing and chest tightness is actually the same symptoms I got (only worse) when I was prescribed sulfa pills for a throat infection a long time ago. I was under the impression that sulfur was different from sulfa, but there may be some crossover. Although many people seem to benefit from MSM, I don't think it is going to work for me. So happy you directed me to those comments! Thanks!
