MLK Day - A Story From ORH

HI U OLE PATOOTS, ORH here, and yesterday was MLK day, and I forgot. All know his legend, so let me tell you my story. Back in 1984 I worked for Hammermill Paper Company in Selma, Al., and a fellow employee had some land for sale near Marion Junction, Al. I tried to follow his directions but SJS, so I got lost. Soon it was dark and I was hungry so I stopped at a rural store to go buy me a coke and a Snicker bar. It was a Colored store and an elderly couple ran the store. I got my coke and candy and explained my plight. They could not help, but wanted to know where I lived. When I said Selma, his wife became alive and explained that she had an operation in Selma. I ended up talking to them for almost 2 hours. We related and enjoyed each others company.

I left and told a friend of my experience the next day at work. He told me that that was the Scott family, whose daughter was Coretta Scott King, MLK's wife. Few have had life's experiences that I have. Some say I should write a book, but too much water under the bridge for that. I remember that MLK said it was not the color of your skin, but the content of your character. True 60+ years ago and true today. ====ORH====

Castor Oil Benefits and Uses - Edgar Cayce's Famous Treatment (

I use a lot of castor oil but not for sleep. It works miracles topically on liver pain, oral pain, and the pain relief can help you sleep better. I sleep the best with magnesium or activated charcoal. I always drink water before bed and when I wakeup. Usually when something is troubling me, I can't get much rest. Eric Berg teaches on you tube cortisol and how it affects lack of sleep. Gut health and B vitamins effect calmness and when you take too much B you can eat a horse. Journaling helps me get stuff out of my mind onto paper and helps me see what is going on inside me. Realism is my aim and I journal freely, then go find the issues and ask myself, can I fix it or just trust it to work out in time? Fresh air, sun on my skin, and walks help me get better rest.

Yes, Thank you very very much! I will make sure he knows to take berberine before meals.

He is trying to get 2nd opinion now but finding it hard to get a local dr that takes medicaid. So, no clue about pancreas function really. I still can't wrap my head around how they came to pancreas function of 10% without expanded bloodwork and scans.

The way it was explained to me by ND is Niacinamide is a precursor to Niacin.

I take Niacinamide in the AM then straight up Niacin in afternoon and before bed.

Niacinamide does not make you flush like Niacin does.

It was also rec'd that I do not take any time release form of anything. The time release ingredient fights with the liver to do its job of slowly releasing the supplement while the liver's job is to process and get things where they need to go in liver's time.

What was the raw food called? Raw can initiate GI issues if you start too soon. Introduce gradually and he'll be ok, like over a week, 1/2 tsp at a time. My ex is a great holistic vet who does nationwide phone consults, based in Fla, and he and I have 30 years of experience with raw food. The best thing for animals!!

Hi Betty,

That sounds like a very nice progress! Taking Berberine a half hour before eating will be a little more useful if he tolerates it that way. Adding in intermittent fasting now should help even more with glucose management. When his numbers get a little better, he can give consideration to others such as the kefir we discussed and then if needed chromium and vanadium can be considered. The berberine and melatonin will help protect his beta cells.

Has his pancreas function improved? Both melatonin and berberine can help protect against pancreatitis, which is a complication that he absolutely does not need.

B12 Cured Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS)

I have several auto-immune conditions, one of which is Hidradenitis Suppurativa. I manage all of them by monitoring my diet. Over the years I have found several things to ease the HS but by far the best was just avoiding nightshades and other trigger foods. I found citric acid to be especially problematic. It was no fun avoiding my favorite foods like mashed potatoes or tomatoes, but I did so in order to achieve clear skin. Then one day I came across an old book called, "The Ultimate Healing System" where the author mentioned something I hadn't heard before. The author stated that if someone has a "sensitivity" to a food, there is usually an antidote for it, which is typically a deficiency. Meaning, that the "sensitivity" would be reversed if one corrects the deficiency. So I began to focus instead on making sure I was consuming all vitamins my body needed. I am unable to take anything, not even supplements, on a daily basis otherwise my body tends to become sensitive to that item.

So I started with taking a B complex supplement that contained about 100 mcg of B12, every other day (making sure to take only supplements with limited amounts of "extra" ingredients). I saw some improvements in my overall autoimmune symptoms. But when I went to get my B12 levels checked with my doctor, they were found to still be in the 400s range, which is not optimal at all. He recommended I take a higher B12 dose.

So I purchased a B12 supplement that contained 2,000 mcg per capsule. I began take 3 capsules per week (one on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays). I continued with my regular B complex on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. A couple weeks after beginning this regimen with the added higher B12, I noticed I was no longer breaking out at all. I tested this by going for Mexican food and had enchiladas drenched with tomato sauce. No reaction. A few days later I ate mashed potatoes. Again no reaction. Since then I have eaten nightshades so many times with no reaction! The HS was gone!

I decided to stop the B12 for a week to see what would happen when I ate nightshades. The breakouts returned. I started the B12 again, and my skin cleared pretty quickly. I googled to see if there was a connection between B12 and HS and I did find one small study where someone's HS was cleared with higher doses of B12.

Anyway, I wanted to share this to hopefully help someone. Raise your B12 levels and other vitamins and minerals to optimal levels and you will see a marked improvement in your symptoms.

I am confused between niacin and niacinamide. Many posts here are saying that niacin is the only form that will not damage the liver, but Ted's post below says the opposite:

I would begin with Teds insights under whatever category you need. Ted from Bangkok, Thailand (

Most hospitals begin with saline IV which improves most conditions. Dr. Batmanghelidj says the body produces histamine any time the water mineral balance is off kilter. Minerals are salts usually. Most allergy or auto immune issues are connected to histamine and many drugs have anti histamines in them. His Asthma book is very informative, with lots of pictures to explain things.

Gut health affects absorption of minerals. Salts thin mucus.

Heaters dry out the air and humidifiers help with lung issues, and I take an expectorant to clear up mucus issues.

Seeking Info on DMSO and Other Natural Treatments for Bronchiectasis

Posted by EmmausRoad (Florida) on 01/18/2022

I have been reading the posts about COPD and various methods of treatment and it has created more questions than answers! I've been suffering with Bronchiectasis for over ten years now. I have reached the "anti-biotic resistance" stage and so am looking for alternatives.

I noticed no one talks about clearing methods for phlegm. I learned that at the Mayo clinic in Jacksonville. I don't think I would be here today if not for that one simple technique.

I met a gentleman the other day that drinks DMSO for arthritic pain and he reported amazing results. That got me thinking about it for my Bronchiectasis. I found several posts on the subject here, but not enough information to create my own treatment plan.

I also am interested in using CS and HP, but would like some info on specific amounts to use and frequency of use.

A referral to any articles, or other information in regard to these questions would be most appreciated! I am due to see an infectious disease doctor in February and I can't imagine what kind of heinous drug they might want to resort to.

As I read your post, I felt like you were on antibiotics and your gut health is off. I could be hearing wrong. We go through many things that can be stressful and alter our health. Empty nest is a big one and then weddings, births, and funerals. Our body uses cholesterol to make hormones. I crashed and burned at 50 and dental work is a big wrench in the works. The white fillings can be estrogenic.
