  Re: Low Carb Diet Lowers Cholesterol

Sun, 22 Jan 17 10:15:24 -0800
Posted by Hal (Ny) on 01/22/2017

I eat high fat, low carb. My cholesterol was always low and I knew the high fat diet would raise it, but I know enough about the cholesterol B.S. that I wasn't worried. My bkfst usually consists of 2 tbsp. (grass-fed) butter, 1 tbspn of MCT oil, 1 tbsp. of cocoa powder blended in cup of very warm water. I was using Bulletproof Coffee, but I gave up coffee, so I just substituted cocoa.

By April 2015, my Cholesterol was 315. I didn't mind that much, but I started taking Calcium D-Glucarate 2x/day (thanks Dave Asprey), and Tocotrienols 2x/day. By 6/16 it was 236.

As of 11/23/16, my Cholesterol is 198 (HDL - 73, Triglycerides - 64, Chol/HDL ratio - 2.7). I backed off to once a day each because I don't want to be below 200.
Hope this helps.

Herbs and supplements for migraines

I am dealing with headaches/migraines since young age of 2, but just the last few years I started using natural ways to stop them. I use many things as I noticed, that sometimes remedies, that worked for me one day, might not work the other. Lately I started combining several remedies together, and that seems to work better than using any one of them. For prevention I use mainly magnesium and alpha lipoic acid. I take either magnesium malate powder or magnesium glycinate capsules without any fillers. I feel that I need minimum of 600mg a day, but if I ate sugar or day was stressful for any reason, I need more. It is not cheap, otherwise I would probably take daily 1000 mg. I can't take more than 300mg at one sitting though without getting belly rumbles, so I take my in two doses. I take 2 alpha lipoic acid 300mg tablets per day-also in two times. I feel that those two help a lot, however I am not particularly good at taking it every day twice a day since I do not like to eat breakfast early, so I have to remember to pack them in my bag. If I take just once a day for a few days, migraine comes. When it comes, I take:

1. 600 mg magnesium at once or within 2 hours (better tummy troubles than horrible headache)

2. drink 2-3 tablsp ACV in a large glass of water (I avoid honey as sugar negates some of the magnesium)

3. drink wood betony tincture (2 droppers in a bit of water.) I also use devil's claw tincture with good results. I tried wild lettuce one, but that tends to give me more nausea.

4. take half teaspoon of turmeric and half teaspoon of ginger powder with some black pepper for better absorption in a bit of water.

Those 4 things work really well for me. Much better than drugs, because even though those would take the pain, but would make me feel weak, and nausea would still be there. Herbs/supplements make me feel good, not just take the pain away.

I did use cayenne tincture couple times to stop it, when I was out and didn't have my usual remedies. It works for a while, but then it would come back. Now I make sure I have at least magnesium and tincture with me at all times.

This hand treatment for Hiatal Hernias originated more than 2,000 years ago in ancient Japan. It has been passed down into the traditional acupressure technique of Te-A-Te, for one. I studied it with a Japanese Master in the 1970's, and he, born in 1896, studied from his Master, and so on. Very effective for immediate relief and can be of lasting help when combined with dietary changes and herbs.

Vitamin C, Herbs for Coughs

Vit C, herbs for coughs

My son had several bad coughs (bronchitis) within a few months, and colds almost every month, so I started giving him vitamin C daily - usually about 4-5 grams a day in 2-3 doses. He didn't have a cold for 7 months, and so far didn't get any serious cough.

When we did have coughs, we used herbs - I have lots of tinctures I buy from Oregon online store or make my own with brandy (vodka just tastes very bad even in small amounts), and make mixtures using my intuition, but the main ones were wild cherry bark, mullein, Echinacea, Umckaloabo (Pelargonium sidoides), and lobelia. We also used propolis with good results, however it tastes not so good. We would take 2-3 droppers of mixture of several of these. It works within 10-15 minutes, so if it doesn't stop coughing in that time, another dose might be needed. But usually it did and he could go back to sleep at night.

There is another herb, that is very effective, but it tastes bad -like a sap or a paint thinner - lomatium (lomatium dissectum). Once I kicked the cold with it -although I had to take a few more doses every 4 hours to kick it for good. That said, I get one cold a year at the most, so I am not sure it would work for everyone. I take vitamin C and other supplements for other reasons, which I think helps to prevent them.

Aspirin and Fish Oil for Plantar's Wart

So I had plantar wart on my foot for about 7 years. I spend several hundred dollars on it by going to the doctor to freeze it off six times, buying expensive essential oils, over the counter wart stuff, tried duct tape, apple cider vinegar, even used nail polish. Nothing-it would annoy my skin, but wart was happy and well...As a matter of fact it started growing babies on the sides. I decided to just live with it. Then I read about aspirin/fish oil remedy and since I had both at home, I tried it. I couldn't believe it, but I knew my warts were gone after about 3 days, however I kept taping mixture on for a week, just to be sure.

This is what I did -

I put one or two drops of water on aspirin tablet (regular, no coating) to soften it, then put a bit of fish oil - I opened capsule. Mixed it, and put some on each wart, and taped it with a bandaid, and then used medical tape on top as band aids are usually worthless on their own. Then I put sock on just to make sure it stayed on well. I kept it on day and night (and put fresh after shower), although people who used it before me did just nights. It didn't hurt, but it did itch. That was several years ago, and wart didn't come back. So after trying all those things, solution was in my cabinet all the time...

Melody ... I have plenty of fillings too. Any leakage is so slow it shouldn't give anyone noticeable symptoms. You shouldn't have fillings removed because that would release a lot of mercury in the drilling. What you describe must be something else. But to get rid of mercury, and other metals, take the chelator EDTA. Take it with cilantro which is said to release mercury in the brain. It worked for me. I had an actual mercury poisoning.

  Re: Choosing the Most Effective Colloidal Silver

Sat, 21 Jan 17 18:34:24 -0800
Posted by Art (California ) on 01/21/2017

In reply to Tierra (Dallas),

There is no real way to know what the silver you buy is exactly as I have not seen a manufacturer that actually lists exactly how they make it. The term colloidal silver has come to be synonymous with ionic silver, colloidal silver and silver nanoparticles.

The only way I know to know exactly what you are taking is to make it yourself with a good quality constant current generator. A good quality generator will allow you to choose how many parts per million from 5 to over 300 ppm or more, what size batch you want to make from 250 ml to 4 liters or more and it should do it in a relatively short period of time. The the finished ionic silver product should be crystal clear as the distilled water that you start with. Once that is complete, the generator should also come with instructions that explains clearly and simply how to reduce your crystal clear ionic silver to silver nanoparticles if you choose to. A good quality generator should also produce a silver particle size that is in the optimum size range such as 10 to 20 nm as shown in multiple studies. Too small of a particle size is more toxic to normal cells so a particle size below 10 nm would be much less desirable for human consumption. A particle size over 40 nm is much less effective than the 10 to 20nm size particles. So too large or too small is less desriable for us.

Making higher parts per million batches requires using a stabilizer/capping agent and for even higher ppm it will require stirring and heat. Without a stabilizer of some type, the silver particles in these higher ppm batches can agglomerate and fall out of suspension.

Generally speaking, for the CS products you purchase, if they come in a colored bottle, they are likely ionic silver and if they are 100% ionic, they should look like clear water. If they come in a clear bottle, they are more likely to be colloidal silver. The ionic silver is stored in colored bottles to protect it from uvb light which can reduce it to some extent.

A fully reduced colloidal silver that is 20 ppm should be a rich yellow color like the center jar in this link:

http://www.cdn.sciencebuddies.org/Files/4691/6/colloidal-silver_img.jpg

The jar on the far left would be a high parts per million such as 300 ppm. The second jar from the left looks to be somewhere in the 40 to 50ppm area.The jar on the far right is what a 20 ppm ionic silver should look like.

  Re: Major Bladder Infection, Will Food Grade Help?

Sat, 21 Jan 17 14:36:57 -0800
Posted by Brendan (Ireland) on 01/21/2017

Hi Frank,

If the infection is serious and you're in pain, you should visit your doctor. That being said I would go the natural route in treating the infection and then adding citrus to my diet to keep it from recurring.

Cranberry extract is excellent for treating UTI's, just take 2 drops 2-3 times per day, until the pain eases, then take 2 drops once a day for a week, the drops should be added to a glass of water. After this you should drink lemon water every morning it will stop the infections from coming back and also give you lots of energy as well as keeping your digestion tract active and healthy, it will improve your metabolism.

I hope you're feeling better at this stage ( a week later) I've had a few bladder problems in the past and have been in terrible pain, lemons were easy for me to get at the time, so I squeezed lemons, added water and kept drinking it until it passed. A word of warning though concerning FGHP, if you have had any organ transplants, do not ingest any FGHP. That is a good reason in itself to refrain and/or not take FGHP if you have any problems with your internal organs whatsoever. Other than that, it is the best and the most amazing substance that I have ingested, as you can tell from my own testimonials above.

I wish you good health!

Sinus infection treatment with steam and vinegar

After a lifetime of sinus misery, stumbled on this idea. Sinus infection for past 6 mos. Began steaming with plain water 1 week ago. Helped a bit. Tried the vinegar and water steam and it is amazing. Clearing up my sinuses, can breathe almost normally for the first time in years. So impressed, have begun drinking a small shot of vinegar once a day. Very happy with the results.

Wildbill62 is correct. This is a serious conditon and not always apparent how bad the infection is, but it does progress until you need surgery or you get a perforation that kills you. Make sure you get a proper diagnosis, and initially you should be taking flagyl as this is an anaerobic bacteria and there are not many things that can reach that kind of infection once you have it. I HATE antibiotics but after researching for alternatives (which I have yet to find) for this horrid drug, I will bite the big bullet. Aloe will make your gut feel better but beware of claims that it will heal this kind of infection. Also, make sure you are on a liquid diet. Juice your vegys, make bone broth, Dr. Mercola has a good basic recipe on his web site for that, and take a good probiotic as well because any antibiotic will destroy the good bacteria as well as the bad. Eating wisely for this condition will help keep it in check after you are better.

For acne on the chin - try zinc 50mgs a day ...ingested.

And diluted peroxide (the regular one that they sell over the counter) diluted 50/50 with water topically on your skin.

Great results in a week!
