 Re: Severe Tooth Decay in 5 Year Old Daughter

She needs to brush with xylitol tooth paste, I don't know what you can get in Germany. If her teeth and very decayed you may not have any options as you don't want teeth infections and problem with incoming teeth.

There are dental pastes called MI PASTE, they do contain some dairy so your child cannot be allergic. They do help rebuild teeth.

I have strengthened my teeth with the paste.

If you apply then play a game with your child then spit out.

How does one take melatonin throughout the day without falling asleep? Melatonin knocks me out at night, I can't imagine taking it during the day and being functional.

Dim for Insomnia?

I had started lifting weights since someone said it would help insomnia and I was telling them that it had not helped me at all and then someone else recommended DIM. I am postmenopausal, a few pounds over ideal weight, take pure food multivitamin, D3, K2, niacin, zinc, AREDs, and 20 mg melatonin (10 instant, 10 time release) daily. Do you think DIM will help with my sleep? Will it give me diarrhea (I have IBSd. Please do not suggest magnesium, as it triggers my diarrhea). I also read that DIM helps with energy and weight loss, so that would be good. Thanks.

Importance of Salt for Stomach Pain

I hope that this will help others experiencing this problem and similar.

Decades ago, I experienced routine bouts of reflux and abdominal pain. GP's dismissed this as an eating disorder, due to the weight gain program I was on to build muscle with weight training. Similarly to yourselves, however, I wound up reading a book by a naturopath explaining that the medical focus on recommending limiting salt intake is having extremely harmful effects on health. The piece which caught my attention was when he detailed that the body requires salt to produce the hydrochloric acid in our stomachs.

Contrary to common belief, hydrochloric acid only commences the stomachs digestive process. Its real significance is that a sufficient amount of it is necessary to trigger the release of digestive enzymes required to complete the job of digestion.

Apple cider vinegar can help to stimulate the production/release of hydrochloric acid but your body really requires a sufficient supply of the ingredients needed to produce it.

Not everyone is able to digest the sugars in dairy. However for those who have been able to do so yet lose this ability, as I did I leave this answer.

It wasn't until I was in my forties that I managed work out that I had become lactose intolerant, thanks to advice in a book by an expert in chronic fatigue recommending self-testing for allergens.

Luckily I decided to keep testing and, after a number of years, I worked out that I am severely gluten intolerant (possibly Coeliac). With severe gluten intolerance the intestines react to gluten by smoothing their walls in order to limit exposure.

As normal, healthy, intestines have little villi which increase the surface area so that a greater amount of nutrients may be absorbed by food. However the enzyme lactase is produced at the tip of the villi and lactase breaks down lactose from dairy. So, from the moment that intestinal walls begin to flatten out, the villi begin to disappear and all production of lactase ceases, rendering you lactose intolerant.

  Baking Soda Inhalation for COVID-19 Recovery

Sodium Bicarbonate via nebulizer delivery caught my attention. I suffered a "light" stroke a few years back and recently I became aware that this would be a good way to increase O2 flow to the brain, in case of stroke, until the's arrive. Understand the first two or three hours are critical for proper restoration of blood flow for an ischemic stroke; therefore a few minutes head start at home should be helpful. I read a book by Dr. Mark Sircus titled Sodium Bicarbonate; Nature's Unique First Aid Remedy. He also authored a book on Transdermal Magnesium Therapy. Both very informative reads.

Interesting about the castor oil. DMSO worked great for me, applied topically and orally. Combined with MgCl oil. Needs to be a pure dmso as the only ingredient or something like 99.8%, preferably in glass bottle (I wouldn't buy 90% of the dmso products out there). Dmso takes anything with it direct into the bloodstream/ through your body, so clean dry hands also. Start with several times per day. I apply the dmso first with hands or organic cotton ball, then spray the mgcl and rub in. Leave 30 mins to dry. There is a youtube video with Dr Jacobs on 60 Minutes about dmso. Can't believe it's not used more, but then pain pills might not be needed. Cheers.

A number of years ago my diaphragm stopped working. I didn't understand why I was suddenly experiencing severe stomach pain, reflux, and digestive issues. It took me years, without much medical assistance, to work out what had happened. A paralysed diaphragm can result in gastroparesis, reflux, GERD, stomach bloating (due to abdomino-phrenic dyssynergia), as well as reduced functional capacity and severe medical conditions.

Try Maca root. It should help get an organic high quality one and start with 1/ 4 tsp a day. Also you may have too much estrogen. In this case, get DIM a supplement made from cruciferous veggies. Take 2x day

I do not suggest nebulizing coconut oil! My Covid symptoms lasted 7 months. You can use this as a preventative and for symptoms. Ayr salt nasal solution, add two drops of lugols Iodine. No drugstore iodine. You can't combine coconut oil, salt water and iodine. When you combine oils with liquids you need a preservative. Stick to salt nasal solution and lugols only. I also took NAC, used a steam of glutathione and one drop of eucalyptus, Elecampagne, herb pharm antiviral, quercitin and bromeliad, high dose c and d with k. I developed an allergy to dairy and had to quit it due to Covid. I also coughed for seven months. I did use mucinex twice, I had a severe amount of liquid phlegm in my lungs. The mucinex helped but it was a miserable experience coughing up stuff for 45 minute at a go. I'm better now, but do feel wheezy on humid days.

Hi Jeff,

I am very interested in PD and research. Can you include links to studies that show that non medical marijuana type CBD that is available on line offers benefits to people with PD?

I don't get it. You, at earth clinic have done so much good; your site is chocked with leading edge natural health remedies and yet you don't mention anything about cannabis or especially CBD. CBD is safer than anything, not related to marijuana any more than salt is related to chlorine (Na Cl) and CBD is said to be the best healer in the world. Seizures gone, pain gone, inflammation gone, depression gone etc etc. Even 3 ways CBD works against cancer. There are medical and independent studies on all of this. C'mon EC, catch up on this wonderful substance that is legal federally and in every state. Get back to me, Deirdre. Let's talk.

EC: We've had a page on it for years (where your post is now sitting) but don't get a lot of feedback about it from our readers, that's why.

Colloidal Silver is a Potent Microbicide Against SARS CoV-2 Virus

There have been many posts on EC discussing the use of colloidal silver (AgNPs) to attack SARS CoV-2 / Covid-19 and I had not contributed to that discussion much, even though I am a user and maker of AgNPs and felt that they would destroy the virus.

The reason I had only passingly mentioned AgNPs as one part of an anti-Covid-19 plan was because I had not yet seen a study that conclusively showed that AgNPs were effective against Covid-19 / SARS CoV-2. While I was reading this past week, I came across a new study that finally confirmed that AgNPs are effective for this purpose!

Although my impression was that AgNPs would be effective against the virus just as it is against other lipid coated viruses like HIV, I had no proof that it could actually impose itself on SARS CoV-2 and attack it. This is why I only mentioned that I would use it for my family and myself mainly based on my previous experience with higher dose AgNPs and the known safety profile of AgNPs at doses that have shown the ability to destroy pathogens while having minimal negative impact on normal cells.

This new study takes the doubt out of the effectiveness of AgNPs against Covid-19. Here is a link to the full study :

Here is an interesting quote from the study :

>>' AgNPs potently inhibited viral entry step via disrupting viral integrity. '<<

Based on this study, I feel that AgNPs will also be very useful via inhalation, orally and topically through a spray. I normally have used AgNPs in a spray bottle that I spray up each nostril as I inhale and this may be effective to use this way every so often when I am around people such as in a plane. I make 20 ppm AgNPs for this spray and that should be effective for this purpose. I may also spray my mask to disinfect it or increase the possibility of killing viral particles that come in contact with it while it is wet as might also be useful in a plane or area with a fairly high concentration of people. These ideas are untested, but I will utilize them as part of my anti-Covid-19 plan.

I have another potentially effective and unique treatment to add to EC's continuing growing list of anti-Covid-19 remedies and will try and post about that soon as it looks like it will add to the effectiveness of most of EC's Covid-19 remedies!

I'd like to add that I found other foods that trigger breakouts. Basically anything that contains solanine. Nightshades are high in solanine. But certain other foods contain it too such as apples, cherries, beets. I am still breakout free. The good news is that I have been able to re-introduce a few nightshades into my diet without any issues by doing the DNRS protocol. This program is designed to overcome food sensitivities and involves retraining the brain with visualizations. I ate french fries twice last week with no breakout. I should mention this was not an overnight fix but took a couple months of training.
