Just Started The 5 Mix for Arrhythmia

5 out of 5 stars

I recently had a visit to the ER by the friendly EMS workers. Turns out I had a AFib attack and almost passed out. Lots of talk from the doctors about shocking me back into rhythm, nuclear stress tests, echo cardiograms, and whatever else they could add to the bill. I felt like a bag of money everyone wanted a piece of. Well, I didn't feel like being injected with radioactive dye, or being anesthetized and shocked! Who knows the short and long term effects of that. So, I started doing research. This lead me to the 5 mix and primarily this site as it has the most detailed recipe.

Today I went to Walmart and purchased a juicer for $49, and the ingredients to make a batch. I overbought as I have lots left over. The garlic juiced amazingly well, as did the ginger root. I juiced the whole lemon, peel and all. My 10 year old daughter helped break up the cloves of garlic. BTW, about 9 normal sized bulbs made 2/3 cup of garlic juice. I did not cook the mixture, added the honey directly to the juice, and flipped the bottle around for a couple of minutes to mix.

I know we're supposed to take it in the morning but I had to taste it. First thoughts.... Wow, this stuff really burns, like 151 going down... lol. The honey makes it cling to your throat so you feel it from your tongue to your belly. Kind of a head rush too. I wanted to chase it with some water but didn't, and after a few minutes it wasn't so bad. The taste isn't really bad, but the ginger really kicks. The aftertaste of the garlic lingers for quite a while though. I will see how I do tomorrow and perhaps follow up if I can but I will give this a try. Sure beats being put through the medical wringer if it can be avoided.

I've had tinnitus for many years and it seems to be related to stress and sometimes toxicity levels. I do liver/gallbladder/kidney cleanses to keep the toxicity levels down. I have found EFT and cold laser therapy helpful. I also use a product called seriphos effective for lowering cortisol/adrenaline levels which when elevated cause the ringing to get worse. There can be many different causes for tinnitus so each case is different but it's worth trying different things until you find what works for you.

Hello Blane,

First off, you need to take granulated lecithin, the liquid lecithin supplement will only overload the liver. My understanding of Ted's lecithin remedy is, the granulated lecithin will bind with toxic oils affecting the liver, these oils, inc heated vegetable oils and canola, contain heavy metals, so when the lecithin binds with the oils, it removes not only the toxic oils but also the heavy metals. Food sources of lecithin are pastured, runny egg yolks and dandelion. Perhaps this is why dandelion is known as a great detoxer. I do not know how or if lecithin acts to lower cholesterol, other than by improving the functioning capacity of a major organ, the liver, the filter for toxins. Another clue, the skin is the avenue for toxins to exit the body, when the liver pathway is congested, one will get boils, pimples etc.

I have read great things about many herbs, including easily accessible fennel seed brewed into tea, for lowering cholesterol.

Best to you

My wife had swooshing in her ears. She found out she was severely anemic. After getting blood transfusions and taking iron supplements, it went away. Make sure you are not anemic.

Rsw,,,,,,,,,, good news, I just got my Strophanthpos ordered. I will have to listen to a 15 minute phone consultation. This path to better heart health excites me.

Sometimes these doctors with God complex's mess with the wrong folks. You know when they got their balloon popped.... when they usher you to the door and not the nurse. It's not their schooling, it is their rearing.

Myself, I get better info from EC than some doctors, but they run the tests.

Hello Paceo,

The burning is due to excess acidity, and so I have attached for you the baking soda section for this affliction

This along with plantain tea have helped me greatly, the baking soda and water must be done on empty stomach, it will react with food and stop digestion.

The ACV you are taking has many benefits, and if a person has enough bicarbonates in their body for their digestion these acids do become alkaline, same with lemon juice. However if a person does not have enough bicarbonates, to neutralize the acid, this occurs in second stage digestion, these remedies will make the body more acid. I would therefore mix any ACV or lemon juice remedy with half TSP of baking soda when taking, but first use only baking soda with water for a day, this will provide benefit to the uti, then add the BS to the ACV.

Plantain tea 750 ml a day has had great success also, but I feel you need to get your acids in order, this will help a lot with the burning. Don't quit your remedies too soon, it can spread to the kidneys if not completely cleared, and since you have had this infection for months I would continue after all your symptoms have gone another seven days. The BS tastes quite nice with fresh lemon juice and water before bed. Best to you

Seeking Cure for Severe Tinnitus

I would so love to hear of someone that has had tinnitus 24/7 that has truly experienced either a cure or definite improvement. Most of the posts I find are from dates gone by, and just wondering if there is anyone around now that has this awful ailment?

I have tried so many things and still not getting relief. I am not sure why I got tinnitus, but it wasn't from an injury. Mine started in about 2011-12 with a swishing noise when I would get up out of bed. I didn't think much about it because I was half asleep. It would go away in a few seconds, or maybe sort of come and go a couple of times. No ringing at that point.

In around I didn't get the actual ringing until 3 years ago this January. I think the swishing was of course, just a prelude to what was going to happen.

The doctors tell me there is no cure, the articles tell me, there is no cure. But I still believe there could be something for me, and something I could share with others to try. I have to have a sound machine at night, or I can't fall asleep. During the day, if I'm not running around doing errands, just sitting at home, I have to have sound going to drown out the ringing.

I've been taking supplements, and using things like ACV, Blackstrap Molasses, Coconut oil for other ailments. But something I'm taking might be making the ringing worse. I don't think so though as they are ringing horribly loud as I type, and I don't have my sound machine/app going on my phone.

Any help, or just someone that understands because they have it, or have had it. I would so appreciate hearing from someone, Denise

Dear Paceo872,

I know of a midwife that prescribes probiotics to help with UTI's. If you have had a lot of antibiotics, this is likely quite important anyway.

You could try plantain tea, a gentle but effective remedy. A couple of cups daily for a couple of weeks may help calm things down and keep them calm.

Mullein root tincture may also be helpful for a more chronic situation.

Dear Blane,

I cannot tell for sure what mechanism it is the makes lecithin helpful for cholesterol for some.

However, it seems that lecithin breaks down fat. It made a night and day difference for me when I had chronic mastitis. I think lecithin was keeping the fat in the milk from clogging the milk ducts, I assume by breaking it down.

If I were trying to reduce cholesterol, I would probably try lecithin given my good experience with it for something else. I also think daily consumption of oatmeal or oatstraw tea may help.

My mother in law stayed off cholesterol meds for years by eating 2 raw carrots each day!

You could get a list of foods high in oxalic acid and see if you eat any of those. Oxalic acid binds with magnesium, preventing absorption. My husband eats a lot of peanut butter and that gave him a problem but taking lemon juice and ACV helped. He has been taking 250 mg. of magnesium oxide for prevention.

You could try taking magnesium oxide before meals and before bed to see if that helps. If the burning subsides the Nutrition Almanac reports, people with oxalate stones are helped with 200 mg. of magnesium daily. Whether stones are formed from calcium or oxalates, magnesium is needed and is reported deficient in our food supply.

Finally, do you drink water out of plastic bottles? If I drink water out of a plastic bottle I will get a headache.

You can't go wrong with Apple Cider Vinegar, with the 'mother' (cloudy, I use Bragg's but there are others). Start with 1 tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar in water every hour or so, you should start to feel the difference after several hours.

Rsw,,,,,,,, lordy, you have put in your due diligence. Just when I think I's smart, you really smart people put me in my place. I thank you for this as I'm campaigning my Integrative doctor to get involved with this. His wife had a stroke in Oct. and I know he does not want to go the Allopathic way.

I will pass on what you have sent and maybe he will help me. Doctors are so spooked this day and time. It's the BIG BROTHER THING. Some want to do right, but they are afraid.

My Tractor Driver got a letter in the mail the other day of a picture of her car running a red light in Knoxville, Tn. All they wanted was $50. Again, I had to read BRAVE NEW WORLD and 1984 at Ga. Tech in 1954. We have arrived.

Our only salvation is to go back to Paw Paw's day and live the simple life. Make our soap from hog fat and fire place ashes. We going back there whether we want to or not. It is destined.

Hello Kt, I am sorry to hear your husband has had to go back to the hospital. I hope he is home again soon. Thank you as always for sharing your routines, and discoveries.

I have a journal online at a fitness site, but haven't been using it. I also take notes here next to my PC. But I have not been consistent enough, not near enough. So thank you for the reminder. I will start putting all I am eating, and taking, times etc. It's not that hard, and I've been on a roll before (in the habit of logging my foods) keeping track. It's really necessary to do that if I am going to be able to pinpoint what is working, and what isn't. It's an uphill battle but so worth it because my whole frame of mind has changed in the 2 months I've been with Earthclinic and the good folks here like you.

I have wondered about the BSM being so sweet and how regular sugar used to cause me almost withdrawal-type symptoms, and I would have to grab anything I could to eat. It was usually not healthy stuff either. So these jitters I mentioned are and inside-feeling, not my tremor. But my anxiety etc. is ramped up so not good all-around.

I use only Sea Salt I get at the health-food store, or the Pink Himalayan. I am hoping that's ok for me, although I try not to use any if I can right now as I wondered it that was spiking my tinnitus. Also I'm a bit concerned since I started the B50 complex and especially the B12 @ 5000 micrograms a day. So it's time to pay attention more, and do as you suggest, write things down;)


How Does Lecithin Help Lower High Triglycerides?

Mon, 03 Dec 18 16:20:54 -0800
Posted by Blane (Central Fl) on 12/03/2018

Overall cholesterol is low (only ever been over 200 once - last physical was 140), but ratios are bad. Triglycerides are sky high. Starting taking lecithin and l-lysine after taking regular doses of niacin, red yest rice, and co-Q10 for several years now. How does the lecithin help? Does it lower the fat intake in the digestive system, or will it actually remove the triglycerides from the blood? Also trying ACV for this and high blood pressure, but no idea if it's helping.

I just need to know if what I'm doing is going to help, and how long it will take to start showing a benefit. Also any advice is welcome.


UTI Symptoms But All Testing is Negative

I'm male 22 in good shape, and for the past 3 months I have had UTI symptoms but test negative on all culture tests. I also recently did a STD screening and all my results were negative as well. It burns when I pee and I have a urge to go all day every day. I've been living with this pain for so long and every urologist I go to doesn't have a answer for me. They push me on random antibiotics and I take the full course but proceed to get worse and worse. I've been researching, and I started to taking D–Mannose and Oregano Oil. But does anyone have a similar experience? Or have a better idea for treatment / what might be going on?

Hi Denise,

I suggest you start keeping a diary of what you eat drink with the times. Some MSG reactions had been recorded up to 72 hrs. later. When your tremors are worse, look back at what you ingested. If you can determine what triggers the tremors taking extra magnesium and "C" prior to ingestion may help prevent them OR you would discover what you need to avoid and find an alternative.

I started doing that a couple years ago to make sure I didn't double up on something that may cause a problem like too much magnesium or vitamin C. Sometimes I'd think, "Did I take that this morning or yesterday?" Especially the black peppercorns or BS & BSM. I get up so early here, by mid afternoon it feels like the next day to me. I have a supply of some supplements in the upstairs bathroom the same as in the kitchen. I bought a pack of 3 X 5 spiral notebooks that are easy to carry from floor to floor or in a pocket to record the times I take whatever, whenever.

While this site transition was going on I sent a post about the flowing agent in common table salt being a definite trigger. I think the flowing agent alone is at the root of arthritis. During my piecemeal learning endeavor, I discovered that just the flowing agent in salt triggered my sciatica. Please believe that through a painstaking trial & error ordeal, I learned this fact. I haven't been here much to know if that was posted due to hubs being back in hospital. I thought it was but it's worth mentioning again for you and ORH because I can't sit here to review posts. MtM and I use Real Salt that does not contain a flowing agent. I believe the flowing agent alone causes more ailments than is recognized.


Turpentine Pros and Cons for Candida

Mon, 03 Dec 18 10:03:32 -0800
Posted by Anna W. (Yosemite) on 12/02/2018
4 out of 5 stars


I began assembling Bill Thompson's Anti Candida protocols in Aug of this year, and approached it very cautiously. I have had Candida since infancy and am so awed and impressed by Bill's cogent and practical approach to addressing the problem.

I have been adding his remedies slowly, and am able to tolerate 70% of his suggested remedies about 3-4 days a week, on average.

When I first began taking turpentine in September, I had a severe reaction to just one drop (albeit on an empty stomach in VCO). Headache, brain-fog, exhaustion were the main issues.

I only took it once, but the side effects lasted for 10 days, and then I discovered that I had a serious bone infection around implants and needed surgery which I underwent, complete with a course of antibiotics - which surprisingly, did eliminate the worst of the infection.

However, I am very concerned about the infection returning, so I read a post somewhere that turpentine was effective in getting rid of the need for a root canal, so I began oil pulling with VCO and 1 drop of DMSO and 1 drop of turpentine this week. It feels like the infected area in my mouth and jaw are fizzing - in a good way. I followed up on the oil pulling with a DMSO/Turp 1:1 drop mouth wash and as long as I drink 2-4 liters of water a day, I can live with the slight headache and discomfort. I am also alkalizing 3 times a day - 1/4 tsp basking soda with 6-8 drops of iodine in a half a glass of water.

So, in sum, yes, awful side effects when I started, but with the increased supplements, Milk Thistle and Iodine, I seem to be tolerating the turpentine better now - and the effects are awesome. I am so grateful to Earth Clinic and all who share on here.
