I am hypothyroid as well, and had same issue. You can try painting the soles of your feet, if chest is too sensitive, or belly. I also used iodoral tablets. Just try one to make sure you are not allergic. Optimism website has more information.

You would be surprised at how little doctors know about being hypo and getting chest pain. I was given painkillers, hormones which did nothing. I only found out about iodine usage for this condition by searching on the web. Iodine worked immediately on me. No more chest issues!

And then getting on natural thyroid meds helped, Armour and NPThyroid.

Thank you so much for this. My sister just passed away from the harsh treatment she received for multiple myeloma. I will share this information with family and friends. It's too late for my sister but could be helpful to someone else.

  Coconut Oil for Constipation

Hi Jessica,

On the issue of constipation treatment....

Liquorice / licorice is defined in my dictionary as: "The dried, black root of a Mediterranean plant used as a laxative and in confectionery". Also "A chewy black sweet with a strong flavor".

I seldom get constipated but if I do, I go straight for a couple of sticks of Licorice (which I rarely eat because of the sugar content! ). Also, increase the water intake, especially in summer and more walking/ activity really helps.

Seems to work fine for me.

Not too good for persons with high blood pressure though!

On another (related) matter:

I have recently given up cheese and butter in favor of coconut oil spread on bread in an attempt to ease sinus congestion but even after five weeks there is no discernible result. Pity, but I intend to stick with the CO as I think it is beneficial on a number of fronts anyway.

Readers could do worse than research the multiple benefits claimed for CO.

Cheers from Down Under (where the drought seems to finally have broken! )

Wow Arn!

This is amazing. Thanks so much for sharing. I have not heard about the connections between selenium levels and skin changes (moles, cancers, age spots, etc).

I have 200mcg selenium caps in my vitamin cabinet, but only take a capsule a couple times a month to ensure I don't have a deficiency. I'm going to take them daily for a period time. I'll report back any changes I notice.

Age spots, liver spots, and moles are usually signs of selenium deficiency. A capsule of selenium, usually 200 mcg, is safe to use daily, with food. The results come pretty quickly. I have seen big hairy moles vanish in a little over a month, dark splotches on the face vanish in days.

BTW, selenium helps prevent skin and breast cancer, and other cancers. And a recent study showed that 250 mcg per liter of blood stops any virus from propagating. Selenium stops covid!

Coconut Oil for Constipation

I have been struggling with constipation since switching to a more carnivore diet due to a health issue I'm working on. Often, it will be 3 to 4 days before I have a BM. I've tried drinking more water, adding lemon juice to the water, using Cascara Sagrada or psyllium periodically. Laxatives work but they take time and I don't want to rely on them. After reading the post about the coconut oil suppository I decided to try it after several days of not eliminating.

I used coconut oil that was solid at room temperature. Since it was wintertime it was not liquid like in the summer. I simply carved a few pieces of oil totaling about 1 tablespoon. I inserted about 2-3 pieces easily into the rectum. They melt a little as they are being inserted so it is not uncomfortable. Within 5 minutes I had a bowel movement. I did it again the next day because I could tell I wasn't going to go that day. In 5 minutes it worked again. I told a friend who had been having similar issues. It worked for her in 5 minutes. My goal is to try some spore probiotics which I've read can help correct the problem. But it's a godsend to know I can use this cure if I can't go for several days. I used a quality, organic coconut oil from the health food store. I now keep my coconut oil in the frig so it always stays solid. I used refined coconut oil but I don't think it matters if it's refined or unrefined.

I do have MSM crystals but keep forgetting to take it.

However, after receiving an email regarding MSM and cardiovascular health, followed the next day by Earth Clinic's email about MSM's benefits, I have resolved to start taking it twice a day (with Vitamin C to enhance the effects).

I now leave the jar on my kitchen counter as a reminder – I'll see if that works.

The information about keeping our heart healthy was from a company that sells MSM but their information is free and they do provide references and sources at the end of the article if you want to do some more research.

Speaking of hearts, Happy Valentine's Day tomorrow!

Take care,

 Re: Question for Art on How to Decalcify Your Pineal Gland

Sat, 13 Feb 21 16:52:53 -0800
Posted by Art (California) on 02/13/2021


The few things that come to mind to be helpful for your purpose are vitamin K2, a good form of magnesium that can cross the blood brain barrier such as Magnesium L Threonate or Magnesium Taurate, ACV, sulfur, possibly borax/boron, magnets, calcium intake reduction especially in senior men, reduction of fluoride intake, and iodine. There are others, but these are popular ones.

By the time we reach 60 years of age, melatonin production is almost nil, calcification or no calcification and even less than a newborn, so like vitamin D, supplementation of melatonin is a common way to bring the melatonin level up to whatever level we are seeking for a specific purpose such as sleep, Covid-19, COPD or cancer among many, many other health issues.

Even though a person may supplement melatonin, taking steps to also decalcify the pineal gland is still a good idea because melatonin is not the only molecule produced by the pineal gland and some of the other molecules can have far reaching effects on things such as red blood cells, platelets, eyes and testosterone, to name just a few important ones.


Questions for Bill Thompson on Candida

or Bill Thompson (and anyone else who can answer)

Hi Bill,

Thank you for the very good and important work you're doing in our world. :)

In addition to a big candida problem in my gut, I have mold toxicity, Babesia, and Bartonella (but not Borellia). My questions are:

-Will your protocol help with all of these issues? If not, what else should I do?

-How important is it to reduce carbs? How many carbs per day are ok? How long do I need to reduce carbs for?

-In order to speed the healing process, how frequently can I take 1 tsp of turpentine? Would it help to do it daily?

-Lastly, can I pay you to do a phone consult with me? If so, how do I set that up?

Many thanks!

Activated Charcoal for Headaches

Sat, 13 Feb 21 11:39:35 -0800
Posted by Paracelsus (Orlando, FL) on 02/13/2021

So many people suffer from headaches, yet not much is known about the real causes of such headaches.

I've recently noticed that I tend to get headaches after fasting for a prolonged period of time (24 water or juice fast). I have started taking activated charcoal pills in the morning or in the evening of such fasts. I'm taking 2 to 3 pills at the time. Each one contains 280 mg of activated charcoal made from coconut shell fiber.

I've noticed tremendous improvement in the frequency and intensity of such headaches. If the headache doesn't go away within a couple of hours, I simply take another 2 charcoal pills.

I started doing this even when I'm not fasting but when I just get a headache for whatever reason. This actually works 90% of the time.

This experience tells me that most of my headaches arise from toxins released during a fast or from toxins absorbed through food. Activated charcoal is the best detoxifier there is. AC works thorough "adsorption" rather than "absorption" (adsorption is more akin to a magnet, whereas absorption works like a sponge).

I also highly recommend taking activated charcoal when attempting to do any sort of detox regimen. Many times people are trying to detox too quickly and overload their liver and other organs of elimination with freed up toxic waste. This is very counter-productive, leading the toxins to be re-absorbed into the body, instead of being eliminated. Side effects such as Herxheimer reactions can be avoided if the detox is gradual and charcoal is consumed along with the detox regimen.

I believe activated charcoal is one of the most underrated heroes of medicine. Our environment and food is so toxic these days that regular detox with the help of charcoal is a must.

I hope this helps some people who have been suffering from headaches without finding a reliable cure.

Blessings to all!

Hi Moira,

Here on the other side of the pond, sellers sell it over the counter with no prescription needed. In your neck of the woods, it looks like Ebay UK sells the melatonin capsules & gummies. Here are a few sellers of melatonin for your consideration :

Overall, the pricing seems very good and it seems there are plenty of resellers of melatonin on Ebay UK. Good luck, Moira!

I loved the post on MSM but question the Bulk Supplement brand that was recommended. It comes from China. It is my understanding China has little or no manufacturing standards.

Update to my earlier post. The skin on the tip of my husband's finger has peeled off with new skin underneath. Back to normal. Yay! So it took about 2 weeks to heal.
