If by “safer” you mean containing less glutamate, a safer alternative would be capsules made from vegetable cellulose. Cellulose is basically plant fiber, and one of the most common sources is wood pulp. Manufacturers grind up the wood and extract the cellulose.

Since the ingredient list names glutamic acid and aspartic acid, one could assume they are both ingredients of collagen. There's nothing deceptive about that.

I'm curious if anyone has tried cilantro extract? I started on smoothies last year and got lazy with them but then my flare up subsided. Now it's back full on and need to start a new plan. I'm wondering if extract might be effective and definitely getting some zinc!

First, I'm praying for your cancer reversal! Second, how are you taking the DMSO and Vitamin C? From my understanding, DMSO must be between 1-2% if taken orally to work. Externally must be diluted to 95-97% with distilled water to work...

Thank you!

Hello Kenny!

I have a friend with lung cancer, I am not sure what stage. She has been taking Rick Simpson Oil, but recent tests show new tumors and tumor growth. I once read a study showing Oil of Oregano killed lung cancer tumors AND encouraged new tissue regeneration. I am searching now for how to use DMSO with RSO or Oil of Oregano to help her... Can you please explain the protocol your friends with cancer used?

Thank you so much for sharing this!

You must mix the DMSO with distilled or purified water, THEN mix oil in. Be very careful, this is very potent! DMSO works much better at at least 95% solution...

This works!! I was in agony last night from a throbbing toothache, I couldn't even sleep let alone lay down. My head was throbbing due to my toothache then I thought about my handy dandy site Earth Clinic and boom! I keep herbs and stuff on hand so I had cloves in my kitchen cabinet, I used the whole clove and crushed it a bit or you can just remove the sharp part and put it right on your gums where the pain is and it's gone! Took about 5-10 minutes. Now I will be able to get some sleep tonight.. Thank you guys for this gem!!

Colloidal Silver for Plantar Wart

Colloidal Silver KILLS Plantar Wart..6 months later and it has NOT come back.

I had a plantar wart for 5+ years. Tried many over the counter and home remedy solutions. Wart still remained. Came to the point where I couldn't take a step without severe pain.. I went on like that for about a month and finally one day I said in my head "ok, I need guidance to rid myself of this pain..Like a gift from the creator, my request was granted and I was giving the direction to obtain Colloidal silver ..

  • Scrape off the extra skin that formed over the wart and then place 4 drops of the colloidal silver on a band aid that is placed on the wart.
  • Keep the band aid for 2 days and on the 2nd night replace it with another band aid with 4 more drops of colloidal silver..
  • Repeat this process until wart is dead and shriveled and then pull the dead wart out,
  • Put 4 more drops of CS on another band aid and cover up the hole.

Do this until the hole is healed.. This WORKED and has not come back.. I'm excited to share and give others relief ..Have a nice day...

I have my blood pressure meds compounded into gelatin caps because I'm allergic to pine and sulfites and they may be in veggie caps. Omg now what? Msg is an afib trigger for me!

Borax for Hot Flashes

Hi Drifter (who posted in 2012 on the body odor page),

If you're like me and still getting hot flashes, try Borax! I bought a box of 20 Mule Team Borax, dip my finger in it 1x/day, and swirl it into my water bottle and shake. It is odorless and tasteless, and the only times I get more than a flash here or there is when I run out, like I am now. My hot flashes went from a 6 out of 10 down to maybe a 2. It's weird buying something from the laundry aisle to take internally, but be assured that borax or boron is merely mined from dried up salt-water beds. There's one in CA that has enough to supply the world for hundreds of years! So the stuff is cheap and amazingly wonderful on mitigating hot flashes! Best of luck, fellow hot flashers!

Hi Pamela,

I am sorry I don't know anything about collagen peptides. I had been informed by the late Jack Samuels that magnesium and vitamin C can provide some protection against MSG toxicity.

I believe capsules are only a convenient way to take meds/vitamins and don't need to be ingested. For decades, I have been opening capsules and pouring contents in a mouthful of water or mixing in applesauce. If a gel cap, l bite it to remove contents and spit the capsule out.

I don't know anything about China grass, sorry.

Castor Oil Packs, Flaxseed Oil for Knee Pain

Regarding knee-joint pain remedies specifically, I can attest to the efficacy of cold-pressed Castor-oil packs, wrapped in saran-wrap and followed by an Ace bandage or neoprene knee-brace. Use overnight for a minimum of four nights and my nagging ache disappeared. I now take Flaxseed oil capsules which are seemingly, keeping my knee free of daily pain.

I agree! I've been very influenced by Dr. Lee, the "original" expert on Progesterone and the other hormones. I still use it because I believe our environment and foods are keeping us in a perpetual state of estrogen dominance.

Ted is a good place to start reading if you want to slowly get away from prescriptions. I have overcome a lot and learned a lot and now I am learning more to overcome old issues. The mind is the most powerful drug there is. Placebos work. I am taking my thoughts captive and speaking what I want to create. I also use the skills I learned in the last obstacle course. I take borax and chanca piedra daily but I use a lot of other things with them. Calcium needs many things to get it out of soft tissue and into bones and teeth. I read death by calcium at the library. May you find yourself WELL as you gain in wisdom and application on this journey of life. Blessings, Charity

I just had a Moh's surgery on my forehead, followed by plastic surgery to close the hole. It's taking its time to heal, and I wish I had used an alternative to the surgery. In other words, if I were you, yes!, I would try the alternative routes with a passion. Surgery is no fun and traumatic as well. I know this is on your back, so not as bad, but in my humble opinion, if you can try to heal yourself with Mother Nature's help, then go for it!

Yes, magnesium is important. I think I may have leaky gut or my system doesn't absorb what it requires. I have to take 2-3 400mg magnesium, a banana for potassium and use Himalayan salt every day or my calf cramps at night and heart palpitations can be brutal. Calm is good but after taking it for 2 years, my teeth became sensitive to the citric acid. Someone here on EC suggested Black walnut for tooth sensitivity and it works very well.

Thank you for this great information! I am currently on way too many medications. I have developed allergies to the environment and to so many foods. I'm looking forward to starting borax (boran) but slowly, to get rid of most or all of the medications. Most of them have been prescribed over the past 15-20 years, I had one medication from age 15 - 40 and 2nd one that was prn. Now I have approximately 13 meds. I can't keep count. When I say I want to stop meds, the doctor sends me away with more. My latest doc finally heard me say, "No more." He is helping me get off of some long term stomach meds that I never should have had for more than a 6-week treatment. I am truly hoping that my new doc will help me, as he is all about natural remedies, whenever possible. And so my Borax journey with the help of Dr. Batmanghelidj.

Thank you again for the additional information! Many people are not aware of how critical water is for humans. It should also be impressed upon people that many of the elderly who are diagnosed with dementia and treated with long term dementia, are suffering from dehydration. It is far more common than people realize and it is very sad, because so many doctors are not trained in recognizing this simple complication and jump to elderly related dementia or Alzheimer's. It takes about 2 - 3 weeks of rehydration and proper nutrition for an elderly person to regain their cognitive functioning. The dehydration will look like a stroke or may even cause a stroke. Sorry, for going off onto another direction, but this is such a passionate subject for me as I watch it happen over and over to elderly and middle aged people - being misdiagnosed, when they just need more water (and electrolytes)!
