Hi Tammie,

Zinc, selenium, iodine and vitamin A have shown some benefit for hypothyroidism:

Vitamin E for Abdominal Adhesions

My sister-in-law got very painful adhesions after her third C-section and internally took NeoLife's Vitamin E...she may have rubbed it on her incision as well but they resolved right away and have never come back in 40+ years! I would not recommend another brand. This one has worked so much better than all the kinds we tried before! Probably because it is actually made from wheat germ as opposed to soy which is 1/16th as bioavailable as wheat or all the cheap synthetics made from petroleum!!

So terrible!

Hi Tammie –

There is a Web site called Stop the Thyroid Madness.

It's a great resource because they've been compiling information from real people with real results. There are lots of links as well as non-Facebook discussion groups run by patients for patients (one of the groups is for the over 60 crowd).

There is information on how to find a good doctor who knows about treating the thyroid properly (not just looking at a lab number and prescribing medication).

Since your mom has been hypothyroid for 20 years, it may take some time and trial and error before she's feeling better but I think this is one of the better sites about thyroid issues (including adrenals, etc.).

Best of luck to you and your mom – hope it helps!

Oh, Charity, you didn't set me off. I just wanted to open people's minds to other possibilities, in my clumsy way. For example, how many men comment that hard stool is the only factor. They've never had a hemi pop out as they were giving birth, now, have they? Just wanted to point out that there are many ways to get this problem.

Hi GertJr,

I am currently studying to override original programming from womb to at 7. Dr. Joe Dispenza and Dr. Lipton put some keys in my hand and I'm not sure yet which doors they unlock but I will be trying them out. One is that your subconscious mind is your body and is 95 percent of the brain you live in. 5 percent is your reasoning brain that does research, watches movies and get inspired but connot change the 95% except in the hypno state 1/2 before sleep and 1/2 hour before waking. That has to be done intentionally or it will never happen. My issues from trauma are my body is addicted to cortisol and I need to give it more endorphins from good vibrations to override that addiction to change it's energy source. Fear or faith doors are what they are . Fear stops digestion. I just learned this in the last 10 days of studies, so I have lots of application to figure out. My other limit is I am a Jesus freak so I have to be careful to not get involved in occult issues while I am trying to heal myself. I am BODY MIND & SPIRIT and can't heal without all three areas addressed. Loveyou GertJr, sorry if my colace comment set you off. I had C-Diff for over half a year battle and couldn't eat a cracker without a toilet nearby. Normally I need Ox bile daily and kefir or all movement stops in my intestines. Running from my trauma.

I've found that 2 or 3 Brazil nuts a day have eliminated my very cold hands and feet. I've been down the same road with doctors so can't verify low thyroid. But have some symptoms. Brazil nuts are very high in selenium. Can't hurt.

I would encourage you to read how to cure the common cold by Walter Last. In it, he explains how some mucus cannot go through the intestinal system and has to come up and out . I guess there is more than one type of mucus. This article I find very long with many links in it and informative. It's always good to have all the information when tackling health issues. Blessings, Charity

Hypothyroid Meds Make My Mom Very Sick - Need Natural Alternative

My Mom is 77. She's had Hypothyroid and Hypoglycemia for at least 20 years. She's been to 3 specialist. the last Dr said she's in the 2% that CAN'T take thyroid meds. She's been on every kind, she ends up in bed crying, Shaking, unable to function, so she doesn't take the meds. Then she doesn't feel great, but she's much better than she would be on thyroid meds.

The higher her TSH, the better she feels. She's gained a lot of weight lately, mostly across her back area, I read that could be from Cortisol Levels. All the Drs were interested in was TSH labs, I'd ask them to check T3 & T4, but they wouldn't.

I talked to people where they fix compound meds, but needed a Dr to work with them, but again they wouldn't listen. Her voice gets hoarse, she gets weak, she can't sleep. I've done research on my own for years trying to find a solution.

Is there something natural to correct cortisol or replace thyroid meds?

Thanks TLC

I am really concerned with all these people who equate hemorrhoids with lack of fiber. I have ibsd, never constipated, and the diarrhea will sure trigger hemis. Adding fiber just makes it worse in my case. And don't overlook the fact that ibsd or constipation can result from factors beyond your control, such as medical conditions. I had radiation twice in my life, once while still in the womb. Since I have done everything I can do for the last 60 years to overcome the diarrhea and nothing has worked, I conclude that the radiation, beyond my control, is a factor. I also had several concussions as a young child and head trauma is also a factor. Any remedies for that, and I'll listen.

NAC as Preventive & Cure for Covid

Recently I was reading about role of NAC as a mucolytic agent for cough & cold, and learned that:

  • NAC is also a good antioxidant,
  • that it can prevent cytokine storm & inflammation,
  • additionally, it also can break down the clots or prevent them from forming which is the biggest danger of covid19.
  • NAC replenishes glutathione stores and helps reduce the viral load.
  • high dose IV NAC is also reported to have had good results for seriously ill patients.

so I feel, NAC must be included as standard of care for covid patients along with vit c, d3, zinc & b complex supplements etc.

I saw your post and would like to receive your log. I have started mms few months ago on and off after I completed 21 days 1000 protocol. Recently I was feeling that some infection starts so I took 6 drops and after an hour 6 drops again. The next day I took 6 activated drops once and then continued with an hourly 3 drops for 7 doses. Now my legs hurt so much I can barely lie down. Please tell me what I can do to feel good again? Thank you.

Art Solbrig's Topical Treatment for Severe Hand Arthritis: Update

Mon, 23 Nov 20 06:13:38 -0800
Posted by Art (California) on 11/22/2020
5 out of 5 stars

The borax lotion has proven repeatedly to be effective for arthritis of the hands, but borax is a fairly large molecule and does not easily penetrate and traverse the dermal layers, so I did not think it would be effective for anything except the hands and so that is how I wrote the original post, for essentially just arthritis of the hands.

Recently, an elderly friend who I had using oral borax effectively to treat arthritis throughout her body for years asked me if I had any alternatives that might be useful for arthritis and I told her that I thought her arthritis was well controlled with borax and she replied that her doctor had asked her to stop the borax because she had another health issue in her digestive tract that he was not able to figure out the cause of and so he told her that the borax might be the cause and asked her to stop taking it, so she stopped the borax and the arthritis started coming back about a month and a half to two months after she stopped the oral borax and it just continued to worsen to a point that was worse than ever before.

I told her about the borax lotion and made her up a bottle because she said both knees were hurting and both of her wrists were swollen and painful. I told her to try the lotion only on the worst knee and worst wrist so she would clearly know if the lotion was helping her or not because if it was working, the worst knee (left) and worst wrist(left) would start to be better than the untreated knee and wrist.

I talked to her at length today and she told me that the left knee was now better than the right knee and the left wrist was now better than the right wrist! This was the news that I have been waiting for and today she confirmed the improvement! To me this test tends to confirm the idea that little borax is going systemic as the right knee and right wrist would likely have improved also if the borax was being systemically absorbed. So her doctor will likely be happy about that and she probably will be happy about that too.

I wanted to share this with the EC community so they can share it with family and friends because I know there are many people out there who simply will not take borax orally and the borax lotion now offers these people who are adverse to taking oral borax a doable alternative!

Needless to say she is very happy and can now start applying the lotion to the other wrist and knee since she is past the testing phase. By the looks of things and her timeline to benefit, she is likely to have both knees and both wrists pain free by Christmas!

To be clear, this did not happen overnight for her as she has been applying the lotion twice daily for about three to four weeks now. Now I know that borax lotion can work elsewhere besides the hands and gives me another option to be able to offer to my friends who don't want to take oral borax.

I should also add that I did not use ibuprofen, naproxen or aspirin in the lotion I made her, just borax and lotion, because I did not want a pain reliever to affect the outcome in any way. So this is purely due to the borax lotion applied twice a day and results should be seen within a month or so except perhaps in severe cases which may take longer. I will try and update again in a month or so once she has been treating her other knee and wrist for a similar period of time as the the left knee and left wrist.

Hi Eve,

Please see my comment under the heading " Sea Salt in water for Mucus Conditions Caused Vomiting, I did not add anything to the 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt except 250mls of tap water and took it between meals, I gave it a stir to dissolve it, and that's all I did, hope it works for you as it did for me.


Hydrogen Peroxide on Plantar Warts - Experiment Successful

Update on 3% hydrogen peroxide on plantar warts:

Since reading Joe's post about hydrogen peroxide and, I've been playing with HP and, over the last 4 days, have applied a cotton pad soaked with HP on plantar warts on my left foot for just a minute or two, each day.

The pain of walking on them was gone the very first day and it had shrunk significantly by the 3rd day. Today it's flat and nearly gone but there's been another effect that I wasn't expecting which is that my leg feels like it's "breathing". As if it had been in a cast, if your readers know what I mean by that. It's as if I'd been wearing tight knee socks and took them off! It's really pretty amazing.

I started on my right foot today by soaking some of the cotton pads in my borax solution and applying that to the warts because it softens the callouses to such an extent that one can simply peel them right off. I did this to make the HP's trip through the wart a little easier.

I also took two aspirins and wetted some aspirin powder and applied that to the warts and left it sit for a bit before I applied the HP. I did this because I suspect that warts - being viral - just batten down the hatches when they're attacked by remedies which would explain why they keep coming back and aspirin, apparently, is reported to dissolve the "shell" of viruses so I'm hoping the HP along with the vitamin C I take will finish them off, once and for all! So, we'll see what happens...

Just so you know, these are applications of HP that I never would have thought of had I not read Joe's post and the article on the website so, again, THANK YOU, JOE AND EC!! I never would have believed it if the effects hadn't been so profound!

Hi Char,

Since it is now more difficult to find the blue powder, it may be better to consider a different topical such as witch hazel with xylitol, vegetable glycerin, and lavender essential oil.

  • Add 8 ounces of witch hazel to a 16 ounce jar.
  • Add 1 ounce of food grade vegetable glycerin to a measuring cup.
  • Add xylitol granules to the measuring cup that has the 1 ounce of glycerin in it until the 2 ounce line is reached. Mix these two together.
  • Pour the glycerin/xylitol mix into the 8 ounces of witch hazel.
  • Add 15 drops of lavender essential oil or to your personal preference, to the mix.
  • Replace the lid on the jar and shake vigorously.
  • Pour 2 ounces of this mix, after shaking, into a 2 ounce spray bottle for easy application to the skin.

Some people are allergic to witch hazel, so apply a small test area to the inner forearm approximately 1/2" x 1/2" and let sit for a day on the forearm to test for an allergic reaction to the topical.

Always shake before using.
