Thank you! That is very good advice I have not at all considered. My cats always have fresh water in- and outdoors.

After now giving Blu 1/2 tsp DE in wet food mixed in with water for 3 weeks twice a day the tapeworms are gone.

  Cayenne for Hemorrhaging

Old West frontier herbalists doctors would use cayenne pepper to save people from gunshot wounds. Mixed with water in the form of a 'tea', and given orally to the victim. In most cases, by the time the herbalist would count to ten, the bleeding would stop.

 

Blackstrap Molasses for Menstrual Cramping

One tablespoon of blackstrap molasses in a glass of warm milk was what worked for me to eliminate the cramping. I just needed to drink it once a day for the first few days of the period. By itself it tastes kind of gross, but with milk it is delicious. Wish I had known this simple remedy decades ago so I did not have to suffer needlessly!

I have basically not missed a night of drinking alcohol in the last 15 years. I began 3 days ago substituting my vodka/water/lemon slice for ACV/orange juice, and it's true it does work very well. I don't think I could actually deal with these cravings without it.

She's not wrong, look into the difference between organic and inorganic minerals. If you knew it would destroy your argument which just rephrased the article. Your body can't absorb inorganic minerals that they add to water or come from water naturally, only those from food. People need to realize they've been trying to give us all cancer from the beginning, I mean there's pesticides in water and they ADD fluoride. It's in “baby water” at Walmart. Drink the equivalent of rain water like the natives.

Over the years I have read the pro and con arguments for milk consumption. Due to a dairy allergy, I have not consumed cow's milk for most of my adult life. My children also showed varying sensitivity to cow's milk when they were young, and it was just not something I served. 6 of my children are adults and none of my children have ever broken a bone.

My dad on the other hand, drank lots of milk his entire life. Probably raw milk as a child when he also consumed well water. Then pasteurized and city water as an adult. He broke a leg in a bad fall midlife. But as a senior he fell dozens of times, even in his 90's and the only thing he ever broke was his nose one time.

I really don't know what to think. I wonder if it is more complicated than just a one-to-one correlation. So many factors affect health, including genetics, nutrition, weight, exercise, hormones, stress etc.

I think one of the best things we can do for our health is to be optimistic. I recently read the story of Norman Cousins curing a crippling disease with laughter and Vitamin C.

A proverb that was written thousands of years ago is, "A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit dries up the bones."

After I read about Norman Cousins, I looked up old Candid Camera episodes and laughed and laughed with my kids. Can't hurt. Might help!

Exactly, every doctor and practitioner will tell you they can and have fixed hiatal hernias, take your money and fix nothing. So many are so clueless about this malady.

A big thumbs up for Yerba Santa. I use one teaspoon of the dried herb as a tea, but also occasionally smoke a small amount if my lungs really need it. The bronchial dilation is quite long lasting, much longer than many other herbs I tried. Thanks for your suggestion, Lisa. Yerba Santa is now my go-to herb for my breathing issues, although I still use Mullein and a couple of others. But nothing beats the results I get from Yerba Santa.

I'm 5'8" and drank pasteurised cow's milk every day as a child. Besides well water it was nearly the only calcium in my diet. I have never broken a bone. My teeth were perfect until I began drinking soft drinks. Though my wisdom teeth were removed. You may consider fluoride levels as a factor in brittle bones. I doubt, despite the studies, that milk caused the weak bones.

The best argument for veganism is this:

"Causing animals unnecessary harm" is the definition of "animal abuse". Since people have no biological requirement to eat animals, all carnivores are guilty of animal abuse.

Best wishes.

Ti ru, while you research, try a drop of castor oil in each eye. It will blur the vision for a bit but won't hurt and might help.

Borax Protocol Update

3 days ago
Posted by Deirdre (Asheville, NC) on 09/28/2022

I wanted to provide an update on my trigger finger, various arthritic joints, and Ted's famous borax protocol. I started the protocol in early June and have kept up with it very consistently since then. Here are my notes:

1. It took 3 weeks to get improvement in my trigger thumb, but my finger joint stiffness improved within the first week or so. Things continue to improve slowly.

2. Even though the women's dose is 1/8th teaspoon borax in 1 liter of water, the men's dosage, 1/4 teaspoon, seems to be what I need.

3. For the first 3 months, I could NOT do 5 days on and 2 days off because my thumb would start to get sore and stiff again after 1 day off the protocol. However, I am now able, in my 4th month, to take a day off here and there.

4. I use distilled water and add trace minerals to it in addition to the 1/4 teaspoon of borax.

Hope this helps. If borax isn't helping you, consider upping the dosage.
And stick with it for a while. Don't give up on it too soon.
I think the over 50 crowd (myself included) probably needs high-dose boron, quite frankly.

Chiropractic for Ear Infection

Chiropractic visit for ear infection. They can do an adjustment that will cause the eustachian tubes to open and drain. It makes a popping sound inside your head. I didn't know this was a thing, but went in for a routine appt when I had an ear infection once and said something about it when they asked how I was doing. They did that and it was IMMEDIATE relief. I always recommend garlic-infused olive oil and chiropractic care now.

Recently I tested as anemic. As it turned out, I had a 2.5cm polyp removed from my duodenum. I found that is the area where b12 is absorbed via the gastrointestinal tract.

More to your point, I was low on Iron. We tried oral supplements, and I thought I would never feel good again. We switched IV for a couple of weeks, and I was no longer iron poor, and my stomach returned to normal. The point is, of course, if oral iron supplements are sneaking in, they may be at least part of your distress.

Cheers

Ivermectin for Covid

I had great results with Ivermectin. I cleared from the main symptoms of covid in just three days. These three days were difficult having a fever of 38,5 C, but in the evening feeling mysteriously well with the fever subsiding. I don't know if this was due to the nature of covid or the action of ivermectin. The second day after my infection I was at bed all the morning and evening and didn't have appetite until night. The third day was very good and by the and of it I am almost clear without even coughing or running nose.

I followed the FLCCC protocol taking 0,4-0,6mg/kg ivemectin (personally 0,5mg/kg).

I took nigella sativa as well. My father had too success with ivermectin dropping down his fever and clearing the disease in a few days.

My brother (we leave in the same house) who didn't take ivermectin because of an operation he had recently, has had the symptoms 8 days now and even lost his sense of smell. (Ivermectin is also a blood thinner so you cannot take it immediately after an operation).

Keratoconus

Omega 3 fatty acids. I have had this for 35 years. I've taken a high dose daily of Omega 3's and last year, my doctor was amazed because my eyes had improved dramatically. I can wear glasses now and correct my vision. I am sticking with this for sure!!
