My husband has had terrible cysts his entire life. Many times he has been forced to undergo surgery to remove them. I saw the castor oil remedy on your site and it has worked every single time we've tried it for his cysts.

Most recently he had a large/painful one coming up and immediately smothered it in castor oil. Within two days it was gone.

What about all of the thousands and thousands of people waiting in their cars to either get tested or get the covid 19 vaccine. Maybe this is why so many are being tested positive or once in the hospital are testing for all of the above???

Do you get a extremely dry mouth with nebulizing saline/hydrogen peroxide? I tried Dr. Mercolas nebulizer treatment for covid and got interrupted sleep from extreme dry mouth, tho, that is more acceptable than ending up in the hospital. Thanks in advance for any tips.

Manuka Honey Eyedrops for Eye Infection

Hello, I had a really bad sinus infection that also led to a bad eye infection. I tried two rounds of zithromycin and it helped but it came back. I tried many different things and the thing that helped my eyes so much was manuka honey eye drops. I took equal parts boiled distilled water that was cooled to room temp and I mixed equal parts manuka honey into it and put it in a sterile dropper bottle. I have been using 2 drops every four hours or so and it has been a godsend. My eyes feel immediately better. It stings a bit at first, but it is so worth it. I am on day 2 and I feel almost back to normal.

Thanks Mama to Many for your update.

Not only was the information on what you and your family took very valuable in itself, but I appreciate how you mention people shouldn't feel guilty for getting ill - regardless of what preventatives they may take. No one benefits from the shaming/blaming game. Thank you for the compassion you always show to others.

And I'm so very happy that your family is feeling better!

Take care,

Tessa (from cold Canada)

  Borax for Seborrheic Dermatitis

Hi, I had mild seb derm on my face (around my nose) for 3 decades. What permanently got rid of it was vitamin d3 supplements. Condition 100% disappeared after taking 10,000 d3 for a few days and has never returned.

P.S. Also tried the borax remedy, topical and internally, but it only helped temporarily.

I seem to have a lot of pennies today ( 2 cents), so here goes.

I also had bad skin issues and still have a couple, (vitlligo) but I was foot soaking a splinter with borax in water and a couple days later my friend said I looked ten years younger and I did. Well then I learned as time went on from reading here in earth clinic that for the borax to turn to boron you need to ingest it so the hydrochloric acid in your stomach transforms it. Now I get the full benefit.

Take it with chanca piedra to prevent calcium stones from causing pain in organs as they come out of soft tissues. Borax is wonderful for sorting things out. Other minerals are silica or horsetail helps body utilize calcium properly with vit D and K2 and magnesium and a full balance of minerals to prevent future suffering. Stay hydrated.

Blessings, Charity

Ps. Coconut oil is also amazing for skin and internal organs

John Bergman on youtube teaches that a pinched nerve can cause tremors Maybe when you change position or relax the muscle affects it. He teaches doctors on the spine, so he knows his stuff.

Chanca Piedra Herbal Benefits (, I buy swanson brand and they run out of it a lot so I buy more than one to keep around for my daily use of borax in my water it releases calcium from soft tissues and that can be painful. Stones are usually from dehydration. Hope you get quick results.

Love your testimony of good results and tips for others who get caught in the covid storm. I wanted to add that when I was young I had no appetite and felt sick a lot. I started taking B vitamins and noticed that I felt like eating a horse and that was interestin. I finally gained weight and had to figure it out and cut back on how many B vitamins I was eating. 2021 is war and victory and war is always a great reset of all that we thought mattered. Sort of a housecleaning.

This is interesting, I went to iron creek for a week of camping. The water came from a hand pump and my cold hands and feet were warm all the time. The water was full of iron. I wonder if your change in some part of your water or atmosphere changed your holding onto water? Something to think about.

Praise the Lord, Mama to Many!

That was in awesome family venture. I am so happy for you and your family.

To me one the biggest battles I see families facing since 2020 is a purposeful effect to help one another stay well.

I came to NC to help an elderly Aunt. It has been trying venture to me to get me well and keep her well. I know the Lord has help us.

I happy to say she got the first part of her COVID Vaccine shot. She wanted it so bad, she has Faith in it. So I am happy for her. She's a tuff cookie and still fussing.

Thank God for family and Caring neighbors, and for our EC family.

Potassium Iodide for Bechet's Disease

For Bechet's Disease:

Please read this article:

Potassium iodide in dermatology: A 19th century drug for the 21st century—uses, pharmacology, adverse effects, and contraindications

My husband had something that was similar to Bechets or it could have been pyoderma gangrenosum. His skin blistered and started to ulcerate in spots, it was terrifying. I ran across this article and we started him on potassium iodide 1200 mg per day divided into 4 doses (300mg 4 times a day). Yes, you read that right, mg, not mcg. It immediately started healing his ulcerations which had been rapidly worsening. He took that dose for 2 weeks and then took one additional week to wean off. Highly recommended.

  Re: Mucuna Pruriens for Parkinsons

Hi Emma,

The dosing for Mucuna Pruriens(MP), like Levodopa, is very individualized and will vary considerably from person to person. People wonder what is the attraction of MP over prescription Levodopa/Carbidopa since MP has as one of its main components, Levodopa and the truth is that some people just prefer what they consider a more natural approach of using a natural plant over a prescription drug. While it is true that they both contain Levodopa, but Levodopa on its own can increase oxidative stress in the brain which can then increase neuroinflammation and in the long run this is likely to be counterproductive for people with Parkinson's (PwP) as they are already suffering with elevated oxidative stress levels and elevated neuroinflammation which have been shown to increase disease progression.

What MP has that makes it possibly more effective than Levodopa is other useful components which have shown the ability to lower oxidative stress and neuroinflammation. These other components include quercetin, Betulinic Acid, Ursolic Acid, CoQ-10, NADH and more which have shown the ability to lower oxidative stress and neuroinflammation. This is very important for PwP and Levodopa alone has none of these other attributes that MP has.

You may be wondering what MP can do compared to levodopa in PwP that is different. In PwP studies, MP can significantly reduce onset of action significantly which is important because many PwP complain that it can take an hour or more to take effect while MP takes effect significantly faster probably due to the other active components in it as mentioned above. That effect alone may make it worth it for some PwP to consider MP. Another benefit of MP over levodopa alone is increased "on time" of 21.9%! Levodopa is a single component prescription drug and can not offer these other benefits of MP! Increased "on time", equates to decreased "off time and what PwP wouldn't want that?

One study went so far as to suggest that MP, "protects or prevents the progression of the disease".

On a related note, I will be posting about this in more detail soon, here on EC! I am of the opinion that a combination of levodopa and MP maybe the best of both worlds as multiple Levodopa products also contain Carbidopa or Benserazide to control levodopa breakdown before it reaches the brain and I believe it also helps prevent conversion of levodopa to dopamine outside of the brain and this is very important because dopamine can not cross the blood brain barrier.

Hi Dave,

The herbal supplement Chanca Piedra, on EC is generally considered a very good supplement for kidney stones and sometimes for gall stones. It is thought to act as a preventative based on studies and as a means of breaking large stones into smaller stones that can be passed with minimal to no pain.

Here is a link to a typical product:

Hi Lynn,

Some side effects of melatonin that I am aware of are diarrhea/nausea, but there is often a delay to get to diarrhea that can vary from person to person to as little as a few days or as much as a few weeks. Other side effects are sleeplessness, vivid dreams, nightmares, daytime sleepiness which usually diminishes with daily use over time. Headache is another symptom that sometimes also goes away with daily use as the body adjusts to increased melatonin levels. Dizziness is another which for me was transient and went away completely with daily use. There are others, but these are the main ones that I am aware of. In studies, scientists and doctors consider these to be minor side effects and generally rate melatonin to have minor side effects and a very good safety profile.

I still feel that even though melatonin has a very good safety profile, I believe that some people are not able to tolerate it and should avoid using it, but the great majority of people are able to tolerate and use melatonin regularly.
