I found out the stone is just too big and I take four capsules of magnesium glycinate and I stir it vigorously and water it won't all dissolve but then you drink it as fast as you can you're relaxing the opening is where the stone is stuck. Also if you have any kind of a anxiety medication I take a Ativan also. I'm anxious to try the pickle juice myself maybe pickle juice with some magnesium powder?

I get heart palpitations all the time. I had all tests run, and they all came back fine. Did you use powdered cayenne or liquid? Do you think this will help with just a fast heart beat?

Boric acid and Borax are the same thing, BUT boric acid is ground into powder, whereas Borax is more coarse. So it can't be measured the same. Both Borax and Boric Acid are used in eye washes and contact solution. So dangerous ha ha. You would get a lot more boric acid if you tried measuring it the same. Just like you get a stronger cup of coffee, if it is ground into powder. Stick with Borax, and you will know the correct measurements.

Osha Root Tincture for CV19

5 out of 5 stars

Back in 2020, my adult son and I both contracted some kind of virus (we never got tested for COVID19) that affected our lungs. We both felt like an elephant was sitting on our chests - somewhat painful. Also coughing.

Anyway, I pulled my Osha Root tincture out of my cupboard. It cured both of us within 2-3 days. The virus reoccured about six times over the past 18 months. I again dose myself with Osha Root and it goes away. Osha Root is particularly good for the lungs. It has been used for thousands of years by First Nations peoples.

My favourite health food store lady tells me that she has had many post-covid/vaccine injured clients and has had great success with serrapeptase (for clearing clots) and pycnogenol. I have also read that l-lysine is very helpful.

 Tumors in Dogs - Fenbenzadole and DMSO Update

4 days ago
Posted by Deirdre (Connecticut) on 10/13/2021

Hi Schnauzer's Mom,

Thanks for asking for an update. I have been meaning to do this.

Initially, I thought the Fenben was working. But I think both my dogs' advanced age worked against them.

Similar to your experience, one of my dogs stopped eating his food if I put it in there.

I had to put my golden retriever to sleep a couple of weeks ago. I think the Fenben gave her some energy. She didn't mind it at all and would lick it straight from a bowl if I offered it to her. However, because she was bed-bound with a massive lump on her should joint at the point that I started fenben and not getting any exercise, I don't think there was much chance of it working.

On my other dog, I was applying the Fenben to the anal area tumor every day but didn't see much shrinkage. So I stopped that protocol last week and returned to applying a light layer Gallixa cream, which can shrink tumors in horses, with DMSO 1-3 times a day.

As to whether the Gallixa is working... not sure what's happening inside but it has not gotten any bigger on the outside.

I have learned a lot these past few months! For those with animals that are constipated (or in the case of my dog, who has a tumor in the bum area and can't feel when he needs to go to the bathroom), holding wet paper towels that are warm, but not too hot, to the bum area will stimulate them to go. They cool down fast so you might need to do a second time for it to work. One of the vets I have been told me to do this (actually with a piece of cotton from a large cotton roll that the vets supply) to get the antibiotics working in that area a couple of months ago when he had an anal abscess, and I have carried on with his advice to get my dog to go to the bathroom. It works phenomenally well and he I can tell he feels better when that area stays as shrunken as possible.

One thing you might try is applying a 50/50 organic apple cider vinegar and water formula near your dog's tumor and on the stomach where there is the least amount of fur. I have been doing this with my dog to help his bladder and he looks REMARKABLY better almost immediately after I do this! I think the alkalizing effect is very helpful. As a plus, they don't get an upset stomach like they do taking Apple Cider Vinegar internally.

I am also continuing to give my dog 2 tablespoons of colloidal silver 20ppm in his food twice a day. The CS definitely helps his immune system.

Please let us know how it goes with your pup.

Tea Tree Oil is Effective for Covid Lungs

Tea tree oil is proving to be effective against covid lungs. COVID-19 can cause lung complications such as pneumonia and, in the most severe cases, acute respiratory distress syndrome, or ARDS. Sepsis, another possible complication of COVID-19, can also cause lasting harm to the lungs and other organs. Tea tree oil is ideal for treating respiratory conditions.

Dr. Reuben Swartz (Amish/Mennonite Doctor) here in Western Kentucky has been telling people with Covid lungs to pepper their chest, back and neck with straight Tea tree oil. Smear it around to make a light coating on the skin. Ruben himself got covid over a month ago and cured himself using Cajeput oil (cousin to tea tree oil) on the chest/back. Along with herbs like garlic and others internally. He recovered in 3 days and he is in his 80's.

Note: If you have sensitive skin, dilute 1:1 with coconut or olive oil. You do want this formula strong.

One massive study that tested 45 oils against a variety of bacteria, fungi, and viruses found tea tree and cinnamon bark oils to be by far the most effective against bacteria.

Another research team then tested the antiviral effects of tea tree oil against the flu virus, which is also responsible for bronchitis, discovered that it could inhibit the virus to a significant degree. It is also a strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant that can relieve inflammation and prevent your bronchial cells from being unnecessarily damaged.

Hello Deirdre, are you still applying the dmso + fenbendazole topically? What changes have you noticed?

I have been giving my dog fenbendazole internally but he is refusing food if he can smell it in his meal. I had to give it a break. I honestly don't see much change since I started it, I was getting some results with bloodroot paste. I was hoping panacur would shrink the malignant tumor a bit.

I don't know what he is like now, compared to pre-melatonin, so if you could clarify that point, it will be helpful for me to better understand his current situation.

If the melatonin is helping, two adjustments you can try are having him take the melatonin an hour to two hours earlier in the evening now that the sun is setting significantly earlier and have him go outside in the bright morning sun for 15 to 20 minutes each morning. The purpose for this is to try to realign his circadian rhythms which with TD are likely out of sync. This should be a longer term help for him and takes time to have an effect in conjunction with the evening melatonin to realign multiple circadian rhythms in his body.

As far as dosage, I can't say because I am not a doctor, but I can tell you what I have taken for over a year now, 106 mg+/night, but everyone seems to react differently to various dosing of melatonin so that means a trial and error approach to find out what will be his optimal and tolerable dose. The good news is that melatonin has a very good safety profile and if he is tolerating it up to now, chances are you may be able to go as high as needed for him to reach his optimal dose, but I highly advise you do this with his doctor overseeing it. One possibility, if you are giving him melatonin capsules is to try a form I am finding to be slightly more bioavailable compared to capsules and here is a link to the product I have been testing on myself and some friends to good effect which I would try before increasing his dose significantly :

Given your son's situation, slow and modest dosing changes seem prudent to see how he responds. More is not always better!

In trying to affect an existing health condition, Dr. Neel is using 1 mg per kilogram of body weight against Covid-19 as you are aware and I believe he is being quite modest in his dosing schedule compared to what they are doing in Manila. The highest dose I have ever heard of being given to a person with no ill effects other than tiredness is 4,000 mg in one dose. Here is a link to that study :

More recently, look at this RCT (2021) where they used melatonin at 250 mg/day for 8 weeks to very good effect in people with T2DM :

You have probably already read these recent studies (August 2021), but in case you haven't, you might find it informative and could give you a better understanding of why melatonin may be of value for your son.

The second study gives you a clue about the pineal gland and its relation to schizophrenia and to take that a step further may hint that trying to simulate melatonin secretion by the pineal gland through divided doses may be one option to consider and discuss with his doctor. I do something along this line that I find a bit more helpful for sleep and I have written about it here on EC. I call it melatonin 123 and may be worth discussing at some point.

A couple of very important points regarding melatonin as it may pertain to your son are that it is the most potent antioxidant in the body through direct and indirect means and it has potent anti-inflammatory effects as well as neuroprotective effects. In your research, you are already well aware of the importance of these three attributes for your son!

Good luck to both of you, Joseph and please keep us updated.

ACV and Cayenne for Sore Throat

Everyone in the house was sick. I thought I had skated by this cold like illness, but I was wrong. I came to y favorite site Earth Clinic. Watched a video on the topic of colds plus sore throat. I followed the protocol: gargled with salt water and cayenne, used the netti pot with the same mix, drank a warm apple cider vinegar tea along with honey and cayenne before bed. Got up in the middle of the night to repeat. Continuing today, day two. The relief is remarkable. This same infection lingered with other family members for a week. I was able to cut brush in the yard and go about my normal daily routines. I still have mild cold symptoms, but the sore throat is gone.

Thank you, Earth Clinic, for an excellent, informative video.

  Re: Hydrogen Peroxide Instead of Oil Pulling

I've been rinsing with hydrogen peroxide for years. Not as an alternative to oil pulling but to knock down the plaque and reduce the bacteria on the teeth and gums. When possible, avoid the 3% hydrogen peroxide bottle sold for $1 or two at the drugstore or supermarket. These have stabilizers in them so that the 3% H2O2 stays at 3% and does not naturally revert to H2O and singlet oxygen.

"Food grade" hydrogen peroxide does not have added chemical stabilizers and so the concentration (35% that I buy) reduces over time, as it naturally would. I dilute the 35% to 6% for my toothbrush rinse, and for my mouthwash I dilute that to approx. 1%. If any of the H2O2 is absorbed in the mouth or I should accidentally swallow that, it's food grade not drugstore variety with the chemical stabilizers. When starting off, go even more dilute, say 0.2% (2 parts per 1000) to 0.5% h2o2 to water. I get a tingling feeling on my gums when I go over 1% with the food grade hydrogen peroxide.

  Re: Flax Seed Oil for PMS Worked But Shortened Cycle

Actually, flax should be taken in the first half (follicular) stage of your cycle if you're still menstruating. Some studies show that for younger women (premenopausal) it acts as an estrogen balancer, and for after menopause, it can help to increase estrogen. You can also look into seed cycling for your menstrual cycle too, which includes flax as well.

I think this guy means he sells "Pool Grade" D.E. and that is indeed poisonous to the body. Food Grade is called "food" for a reason. This stuff is amazing! Don't be scared. Don't be held up by Brand either - just make sure it's Food Grade. It will work. I am still discovering the wonders of D.E. Happy Healing, everybody!
