DMSO helps with so many issues. Yet I think that there are a few things to do to really give it optimal effectiveness.

First is eliminations

Vegetable oils use butter or coconut oil only. This helps your digestion and helps your liver function.

Gluten, GMO, all grains if you can. This will get rid of pain to an extent, help you digest and absorb nutrients optimally.

Aspartame: It is poison to the body, stopping it will reduce pain. If you put it near insects they will not eat it.

Fluoride in water and anything you buy. It is a neurotoxin. I had lost all of my brain abilities. Could not drive. Think. Read. I was laying on cement in my basement waiting to die. I managed to look up Ted's remedies here on Earth Clinic. I took 1/8 tsp of 20 mule team borax in a liter of water. Drank that in bits in beverages through the day. My mind began to work. My pain began to diminish. 4 days out of 7. It displaces the fluoride with healing boron. Balances hormones disrupted by envirornmental toxins. For men it is 1/4 tsp of borax in 1 liter of water.

Aluminum: this gathers up in the brain and stops it from functioning. The best detoxifier is borax. And 1 lime squeezed in a glass. 6 to 8 tsp.Add 1/2 tsp baking soda. Let fizz. Add 1/2 glass of water. Drink 2x a day. 1/2 hour after food. 5 days out of 7.

Calcium supplements or excess calcium. This causes joint pain. Circulation problems. The lime drink above removes excess calcium from circulation. Improves digestion. Keeps cortisol, overnight from jumping all over. Improves stages of sleep, helps optimize function of gallbladder, pancreas, kidney and bladder.

Table salt...use sea salt. It has all the trace minerals in their correct forms and amounts to run the body.


No lo fat or sugar free foods the tub chlorine steam can affect the heart. Use fish tank dechlorinator. Chlorine filter in kitchen.

Pain relief.

Epsom bath. 1/2 the ingredients for foot soak. 2 cups Epsom

1 cup borax

1 capful fish tank dechlorinator

1 cup hydrogen peroxide to oxygenate the body

Soak 20 minutes minimum. As often as you can.

Magnesium. Supplements 250 mg 2x a day. Mag citrate for constipated types. Mag malate for runny stool types.

Magnesium oil. Buy magnesium flakes. Online supplement shops etc. 60% flakes in a mason jar. Add 40% spring water. Let stand 1 hour. Cap and shake. This you can put in spray bottle and spray sore areas. Put some on feet at bedtime to get it through entire body. Your body uses magnesium from the top of your head to the tips of your toes. It may sting, add more mag oil..or water..or castor oil to stop stinging until your levels rise. Once adequate it no longer stings.

Castor oil pack. A folded piece of flannel to fit treatment area. Into a ziploc. Add enough castor oil to saturate the cloth in bag. Use bag to squeeze out excess, while pulling it out. Add mag oil. Then add DMSO. Apply to painful area, lay on an old towel, add saran wrap, add a heating pad on medium. 20 minutes or longer. As often as you wish.

DMSO the area must be clean before applying as DMSO carries everything through the skin to target areas.

Here is Teds chapter on DMSO if you type in E.C.s search box DMSO and your subject. Day arthritis you will see all available info re your search.

Burning Tongue Syndrome and Alpha Lipoic Acid

I had burning mouth syndrome that was increasingly getting worse. I had it for four months and read about taking Alpha Lipoic Acid. I couldn't believe it. Within the first week the burning in my mouth started to decrease along with the reflux. I am now 1 month out from starting to take it and I have very very minimal symptoms only on my tongue. I continue to take it and for me it worked.

In reply to Gracie (Nottingham, Uk),

For myself, I have ground up ibuprofen or other nsaids like naproxen and aspirin into a super fine powder in a bullet type blender and add the powder to a lotion which I apply directly to painful areas. This allows me to reach tissue levels that would not be possible with standard oral dosing.

If I was going to try this on myself for the first time to see if it would be helpful, I would buy ibuprofen in a soft gel capsule and pop it with a needle and then squeeze the contents directly onto my painful area and then apply a typical body lotion right on top of it to help work it into the skin. If it helps with my pain then I would go ahead and make the powder and lotion mix to treat my painful area regularly. The advantage here is that although I can reach high tissue levels locally the chance for nsaids to damage my gut or kidneys are greatly reduced.

Another alternative is to use Arnica Montana ointment directly on my painful areas.

The one area you did not mentioned in your post was EMF (electromagnetic frequencies). Your sleep could be disrupted by consistent frequencies going through your body. This has become a huge problem with all the electrical devices in our lives. Go onto YouTube and look up Dr. Nicholas Gonzales and sleep disorders. He discusses this problem in detail. Also, our pineal gland is not able to make enough melatonin when exposed to the “blue light” emitted from our tablets, phones, computers, floresent lights, etc a. So, many people are staring at these devices before they go to bed - then they can't sleep. Dr. Mercola suggests turning off the electrical breaker and router to your bedroom at night - and leave the devices in another room ( I put my iPhone on airplane mode). Also, when you go outside, ditch the sunglasses - your pineal gland needs the sunshine exposure. Do your research on all this - it surely has helped me in the past!

Note: try to find out if there is a cell phone tower near your residence. If so, there is an indoor paint used to prevent the frequencies from getting into your bedroom. Look this up.

Good Luck!

You are very welcome!

Another major point about that study is that they only used the active treatment for 2 weeks......yes, just two weeks and then they stopped treatment and only observed for the last two weeks. In the last two weeks, the treatment group continued to improve! If this were a drug that they used for the study, it would be one big money maker for the drug company considering the results they got! As it is, very few people are even aware of this potentially great treatment for OLP!

Another major point in this study is that they used such a mild dose at just 0.2% HA! Just imagine what the results might have been if they had used a stronger dose, a more frequent dose or had continued the dose beyond two weeks?!?!

Keep us posted on how you do with it, Rsw!

Hi, I understand you have tried magnesium, however your symptoms scream magnesium deficiency to me. Perhaps the supplement you tried was not well absorbed due to gut and or intestinal issues, the tablet/capsule housing did not break down in time, etc. I would suggest absorbing some minerals transdermally, avoiding possible absorbency problems in the gut. In a bath every night before bed, one cup each borax, sea or Celtic or Himalayan salt, Magnesium in the form of Epsom salts, also supplying sulphur, as it is likely you are deficient in other minerals/vitamins because of absorbency issue. I would try this bath routine every night for a week at least. Thinking also some bentonite for ingestion. And after bathing apply some magnesium oil, perhaps on to of slkome coconut oil. Also consider a cheap and easy way of getting minerals to your cells would be 1/4 tsp sea salt to a litre of water a day.

Do you have any suggestions for Seronegative arthritis, no libido, little energy and bleeding in between periods and well as heavy ones? I have tried almost all the alternatives for my symptoms but I continue to decline in health. I felt no improvement with borax, magnesium, baking soda, vinegar, ect... I am not an old person but my life is passing me by because my condition is crippling me. I have swelling/fluid retention, stiffness, bone erosion and nodules, weakening muscles and joint, and hair loss. things are getting worse. I don't know what to do since I have done what Ted has suggested for the other with arthritis.

Hi All,

I am 38 years old, I have been suffering from restlessness for no particular reason for past 7-8 months. This is affecting my sleep to the extent that I am able to sleep only around 4-5 hrs a day on an average. I feel so sleepy some nights that I find it difficult to keep my eyes open but the restlessness does not allow me to actually fall to sleep.

I have consulted psychologists and psychiatrist who have told me its kind of post traumatic stress disorder due to the tremendously difficult time I had faced for 7 years until a year back. So even when the issues resolved, I am still struggling to free myself of this restlessness. Sometimes even when I feel like I am about to fall asleep, I automatically start thinking about this sleep issue of mine and wake up. It happens even in the middle of night. I struggle of keep myself in the same position in the bed for long and keep tossing and turning due to this restlessness.

Restlessness is mostly at night but sometimes face in daytime also but then I am able to distract myself with work. In night time, there is no respite because even though there is little in my life to worry me, this needless restlessness doesn't allow me to fall asleep.

Now I have started facing cognition, memory and low efficiency at work due to lack of sleep.

I have been suggested Ambien, Melatonin and Aplrazolam by Drs. Ambien and Alprazolam help more but they are addictive and full of side effects and cant take them regularly.

I have tried magnesium, all B-Vitamins, Vitamin C, DHEA, Boron, Zinc, Ted's carbicarb formula, ACV, Yoga, Pranayam, Ayurvedic treatments like full body and foot massages, basti etc. Hot water baths as well. I do not know what else to do.

Anyone having any ideas here? Please help.

Seeking Remedies for Severe Pain Weeks After Knee Replacement Surgery

Fri, 19 Jan 18 10:48:43 -0800
Posted by Gracie (Nottingham, Uk) on 01/19/2018

I'm in my late seventies and in May last year woke up to excruciating pain in my right knee, and could barely walk for six weeks. It was diagnosed as a flare-up of arthritis, though I had little pain beforehand. My doctor advised physiotherapy but it wasn't successful though the pain did diminish somewhat. However, on the 30th October 2017 I had a knee replacement, but eleven weeks on I'm still in a lot of pain. It hasn't been an easy journey. Night times are a nightmare, as since the operation I'm not sleeping well. I'm in pain and the skin surrounding my knee is super sensitive. I cannot even bear a sheet over it sometimes. I was prescribed morphine and Co-Codamol, and whilst the Co-Codamol helps me sleep a little better I hate the side effects of it. It makes me very, very constipated, and the next morning feel so hung over that half the day passes before I can get moving. I dislike taking any form of medication, but do resort to taking Ibruprofen, Anadin, etc, which do not have same side effects as the Co-Codamel but only slightly help with the pain.

I've always been into healthy eating, so in May when I had the initial flare up I tried all the natural remedies, such as Borax, MSM, turmeric, apple cider vinegar, etc you name it I tried but nothing really helped. I would be interested to learn if other contributors to Earth Clinic had any answers.

Best wishes

Hello Joanne,

Thank you for your post. Very helpful. I have been looking for a remedy for more than ten years now. I can't wait to try castor spread. By Castor spread do you mean castor oil? I am not able to find castor spread. Thank you.

Aloha, coconut water comes out of the coconut and it is clear. Coconut milk is made from the white meat of the coconut. Whole coconut milk does contain coconut oil, however it is processed if you are cooking with it and it came from a can. It is far more beneficial to your body to eat organic virgin coconut oil
