Hyaluronic Acid for Bronchiectasis?24 days ago
Most studies using HA for Bronchiectasis have used nebulized or aerosolized HA in order to obtain benefit and deliver directly to the lungs interior to afford maximum benefit. I haven't seen any studies using oral HA for the purpose.
If you aren't already using N Acetyl Cysteine (NAC), it may be a consideration as it acts as a mucolytic to thin mucus secretions and help them flow out. It also acts as a potent antioxidant and reduces lung inflammation which is very useful for Bronchiectasis.
Here is a relevant quote from the study :
' A total of 24.7% of the N-acetylcysteine group patients and 11.3% of the control group patients remained exacerbation-free throughout the 12-month follow-up (χ2 = 4.924, P = 0.026). Compared with the control group, the volume of 24-h sputum in the N-acetylcysteine group was significantly reduced (t = − 3.091, P = 0.002). Additionally, the N-acetylcysteine group showed a significant improvement in the quality of life. No severe adverse events were reported in the intervention group. '
While not specifically for bronchiectasis, Melatonin has also shown significant anti inflammatory effects in various lung diseases as discussed here :
Here is a relevant quote :
' Animal experiments showed that melatonin can not only alleviate chronic lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced mouse lung destruction and chronic lung inflammation but also reduce necroptosis (RIP1/RIP3/MLKL), a programmed cell death process in bronchial epithelial cells. The protective effect of melatonin on chronic lung inflammation was further suggested to be dependent on targeting its membrane receptor MT1/MT2. In addition, transcriptomic and metabolomic profiling in the lungs of mice indicated that LPS can induce perturbations of the mainstream metabolites associated with amino acid and energy metabolism. Melatonin may reduce the necroptosis by modifying the disordered pathways of alanine, aspartate, and glutamate metabolism caused by LPS. This study suggests that melatonin may act as a potential therapeutic agent for alleviating the chronic inflammation associated with COPD.
Borax for Psoriasis Flaking24 days ago
I have severe psoriatic arthritis (PA) and taking borax orally has kept it in remission for way over a decade now. I use Ted's dosing instructions that call for 1/4 teaspoon of borax dissolved in a quart of water for men and 1/8th teaspoon dissolved in one quart of water for women.
Drink one full mix each weekday and take the weekends off. I still have the PA as attested to by the ridges on my nails, but no joint inflammation, joint deterioration or pain. Nothing ever worked this good for my PA. Five days on and 2 days off.

Are there benefits by using oral Hyaluronic Acid for Bronchiectasis? If so, what kind to use and what protocol to follow? in such a way as not to weaken the immune system and at the same time to reduce the lungs alveoli inflammation.
Re: Carbs and Lipomas24 days ago
I have a lipoma behind my left ear. It grew to about 5 x 5.5cm over many years. It would occasionally itch. About 4 weeks ago I started a sugar and gluten detox and noticed that my lipoma is softer and has shrunk. It is now 4x4.5cm, in only 4 weeks of cutting out gluten and sugar and hasn't itched since. I suspect it is due to excluding sugar from my diet.
Borax for Psoriasis Flaking24 days ago
Psoriasis. Thank you Earth clinic for helping me out my flaking. I had a few spots in my scalp for over two years. Doctors confirmed me as psoriatic arthritis. I have rheumatoid arthritis for over 20 years.
After reading some comments in here I shampooed my hair a solution of borax and water and drank a mixture of borax, ACV and baking soda. I am totally cleared of flaking but my arthritis is still active. I have been clear for over ten years now. Occasions of itch at the flaking spot I will resume with one or two shampooing sessions. I am back to this page after so long for some other issue and wanted to contribute and thank this site for curing my flaking psoriasis.

Turpentine Gum Spirits for Dogs With Parasites24 days ago
Yes I give to my dogs Gum Spirits (pine turp--not same as paint turpentine!)
Okay I am really into JENNIFER DANIELS MD . Her books are amazing. Her website has a free guide on taking turpentine for people. Its for "candida" but candida is fungus and what thrives on fungus???? Parasites. Thus why its great for those with parasites.
And if you have dogs/pets and garden, you have parasites. Jennifer Daniels says this whole parasites hysteria is overblown. That you just need to keep them under control and she has taken turpentine since 1994. She takes 1/2 tsp 2x a week.
So when I decided to try it for my dogs I wondered how to get it down quickly yet with sugar. So I wrapped up the dose of sugar and gum spirts in Black Forest ham. Which went down very quick with the dogs. I used a 1/2 tsp of sugar on a piece of Black Forest ham with 2 drops of turpentine on the sugar and gave to a 70lb Golden Retriever. Did the same for my Toto sized terrier of 40lbs. I gave her one drop. All went well, and so we up the dose every week one more drop . I plan to give the larger dog 1/4 tsp total after she has proven safely she can handle it. The other dog 3-4 drops.
Today my husband said the Golden had small worms so its working. I also give the dogs Dr. Goodpet vitamin C for dogs about 3x a week. Help their teeth and gums and their body. I also give them super silica (YouTube it) in their water.
I used the Dr. Goodpet.com Vitamin C PLUS I LOVE THEIR Flea Tincture which keeps the dogs mellow and less itchy with fleas. I give NO flea meds anymore. This tincture is incredible. I used it all last Summer. That along with lots of vacuuming -totally worked. I also give the dogs Ivermectin 1x a month 6 months out of the year. And I give them Goat Dewormer 2-3x a year.
I read the whole thing and started out with two drops of turpentine after starting Cell Cores Bowel mover. Then when I was getting used to it and found it to work, I started my dogs on it. They are getting older and need extra help.
Re: Fix for DMSO Smell Issues25 days ago
Hi Roxie, There are two companies I found that make a supposedly 'odorless' high purity DMSO.
The DMSO store and Biogenics essential.
Haven't tried either, as I don't seem to get the garlic odor from my Nature's Gift DMSO I can get at local coop. Although now that I have started oral use after years of external use only; I am realizing that Nature's Gift is not as careful and pure as I would like, so considering other brands myself.
I read that sometimes you get more garlic odor from a less pure product also that some folks are detoxing more and so get the odor more.

Borax, epsom salt, and baking soda bath

Can Borax Help Mental Health Issues Such As Depression?25 days ago
Re: Epley Maneuver and More for Vertigo25 days ago
Hello EC, Selectatarian of MD and Sam of Miami,
Doctor Eric Berg teaches about vertigo in some of his YouTube videos. He say it can be caused by mucus in the sinuses, or possibly calcium deposits in the ear. He believes that vitamin D3 and Vitamin K2 can help to remedy the situation. In the below YouTubes he suggests using 50,000 IU Vitamin D3 and 500mg of K2 together one day a week.
In an earlier video, his advice was 10,000 IU vitamin D3 with 100mg daily. However he says he learned that the above once a week method worked better.
Please look at the YouTubes below if you want to hear what he says about vertigo.
Have you seen this Dr.Berg video
Re: Squamous Cell Carcinoma25 days ago
MMS (Chlorine Dioxide) can be taken internally AND topically for surface issues (along with DMSO). But need to be cautious about the HOW. I used the book MMS Health Recovery Guidebook by Jim Humble which can be found online and I think free pdf format as well. Blessings.

Re: Nebulizer Treatment Suggested for Bronchiectasis26 days ago
The suggested label dose on my bottle is 500 mg total per day which is equal to two capsules since they are 250 mg per capsule. That is what I almost always use, but have gone as high as 3 capsules per day for a very short period of time.
