In reply to Wil S. (Kentwood, Louisiana ),

I am glad that colloidal silver is helping your vertigo symptoms!

I would suggest that people not to use well water or spring water to make their colloidal silver with as you have no control over what is in that water. I understand that it is used for drinking water, but when you are taking your colloidal silver into your nose, whatever is in that colloidal silver can potentially reach the brain and that definitely seems a risk worth avoiding by just using distilled water to make your colloidal silver with.

The fact that you say that your CS is lavender colored, indicates that there is more than silver in this water, but you don't know what it is and you are putting it up your nose. It may not be something harmful, but is it worth the risk when a gallon of distilled water can be had for around a buck? If you look at all of the commercially available CS products, I don't think you will find any lavender ones. Most silver products will be clear or shades of yellow or brown.

In reply to Sarhapp (Stockholm),

I forgot to mention in my previous reply to you that your symptoms are also similar to Lyme disease as well as the fibromyalgia that I mentioned in that post. The fact that the symptoms move and come and go are typical to both diseases.

The fact that you are in Stockholm adds to the idea of Lyme also.

Here are typical symptoms for Lyme disease:

Need help. Wondering if anyone has felt like this and what I can do to feel better. Eating clean/ paleo. Done many many diets in past years. Read for 7 years so I know a lot.

Hi, just wanted to calm the fear about the color change. I just cooked up a batch of this for my husband in ceramic cookware, using a wooden spoon to stir and it did turn a bright blue-green color. I added the honey and still the same. I keep it in the fridge and I have taken it myself for three days now without any problems. I don't believe it's the metal utensils that caused the color change, although I think it's good advice to use glass or ceramic. I think it's just a chemical reaction among all the ingredients that's brought about by the heating process. I haven't felt any ill feelings whatsoever. I looked up Dr. Ketan Patkar's site that was recommended by someone in a prior post, and he says clearly to take it with a glass of warm water, as does Mama to Many. Get ready for a powerful flavor blast though!

Can Borax Cause Hair Loss?

G'day, I've been on borax for about 9 months now. I just wet my finger and dip it in the borax and that's it for the day. I take it with magnesium. But I've been noticing my hair seems to be really thinning at the front. Can borax send you bald??? At 66 I've still my own brown colour with a few greys. I use sunlight soap as my shampoo and rinse in very diluted vinegar. Any ideas? Maybe it's just old age???

Colloidal Silver for Vertigo

Sun, 23 Apr 17 10:08:47 -0700
Posted by Wil S. (Kentwood, Louisiana ) on 04/23/2017
5 out of 5 stars

For several years, I have fought vertigo intermittently. Two of the 3 ENT's I went to were only interested in selling me a hearing aid. They did me absolutely no good -- weren't interested in healing me, to my notion, or even in really diagnosing the problem. This last bout got no better for 4 days. My husband insisted on getting fresh eyes on the problem in the form of a local NP, who might try to actually find the problem rather than having a diagnosis in mind before seeing me and trying to make the problem fit his diagnosis rather than the other way around. He immediately saw (by looking in my ears -- what a novel idea) that I had a terrible infection. Two rounds of antibiotics helped a lot, but apparently the sinus behind the maxillary bone had been infected, perhaps for years. The NP sent me to yet another ENT, and I was once again disappointed. I thought my own way through the problem and I believe a cure is at hand.

For years I have made my own colloidal silver. I have no idea how many ppm it is, but I make it with our well water, which is from an aquifer that is mined by a local company which bottles and sells it as "spring water." My colloidal silver is lavender-colored. To get rid of the infection in my maxillary sinus, I lie on the bed with my head hanging over the side (upside down, face up) and use a large eye dropper to fill my left nostril with colloidal silver until I feel it coming into my throat through the eustachian tube. By turning my head to one side (left), I am able to fill the infected sinus without swallowing liquid. The first application burned like the mischief. When I am regimented in doing this 3 or 4 times a day, I experience great relief. The dizziness, while not completely gone, is almost gone. I figure it took years of negligence to get to this point; it may take awhile to completely cure.

Serrapeptase for Loss of Smell

Serrapeptase has worked for loss of smell. I took it for about 1 month now due to a traumatic brain injury, on a empty stomach as directed right before I slept. I would wake up with blood residue/scar tissue on my nose which helped clear up the olfatory system. I have regained about 70% of my smell now after my fall. (I fell off a motorcycle and landed on my back).

Re: Probiotic with B. Bifidum to cure Ulcer.

I have selected two brands of multi strain probiotic capsules with B. Bifidum and B. Breve from They are selected with the following conditions:

1) More than 1000 customer reviews.

2) Average customer ratings is more than 4.0 .

3) Contains at least 15 probiotic strains.

They are :

1) Hyperbiotics PRO-15.

. 6280 customer reviews.

. 15 probiotic strains.

. Average customer ratings = 4.3.

. Price = US$ 24.95 for 60 capsules.

2) ULTRA-30 Probiotic.

. 1117 customer reviews.

. 18 probiotic strains.

. Average customer ratings = 4.5 .

. Price = US$ 28.95 for 60 capsules.

One can use similar techniques to select the brand from other online sites. Since these multi strain probiotic capsules contain other probiotic strains also, they can control other medical problems due to probiotic imbalance such as : Diabetes Type 2, High Blood Pressure, Heart Disease, etc.

Best Wishes,

P. Raghavan.

Dear Mary,

I too thought I had scabies and for three months spent a fortune trying to clean everything, and washing sheets and everything I touched continuously. I went to the hospital twice and my doctor and they all said I had scabies. After three months of this and treating it with the prescription they gave me. I also read on Earth Clinic the accounts of others plagued with this horrible curse. I finally went to the hospital again and told them if they could not get rid of this thing that I was going to have a breakdown. The doctor that saw me said that he thought that I did not have scabies and sent me to a dermatologist.The dermatologist told me I did not have scabies...I had eczema. He gave me a prescription of a cortisone type cream and in 4 days all my symptoms were gone. I have never had any kind of experience like that again. Before you have to move go to a dermatologist first. My heart and prayers are with you.

If you can wait a few days for delivery, you can find everything you need on Amazon by googling "buy castor oil packs." I hope you feel better soon. Serrapeptase is supposed to clear adhesions and scar tissue in the body and may also give some relief.

In reply to Sarhapp (Stockholm),

I was wondering if your symptoms are more frequent at a specific time of day? Some of your symptoms are similar to fibromyalgia symptoms, but there is no specific test for fibromyalgia and you have not had the symptoms long enough to meet the criteria for it. Usually you are diagnosed based on your symptoms as well as the length of time you have had the symptoms. Also there should be a process of elimination to eliminate other potential health issues as the cause. Without a diagnosis, it is basically guessing how you should try and treat your health issue. Here is a basic description of fibromyalgia symptoms that you can compare to what you are feeling:

You can review this brief article to help narrow things down or possibly eliminate the idea of fibromyalgia altogether. The more focused you can be in describing "all of your symptoms" as well as when they occur, the easier it will be for people to help you. It might be helpful to write down "every single symptom" you have and when exactly it occurs during the day or night. If you end up going to a doctor or post back here on EC, those notes will be very helpful in determining how to approach this problem.

Turmeric for Hearing Loss

I was taking turmeric for inflammation after ingesting too much manufactured glutamic acid (MSG). It seemed to open my ears up and I could hear so much better.

It should be noted I had a fractured skull with ruptured eardrums decades ago that reduced my ability to hear well. After ingesting turmeric I don't have to have people keep repeating what they say. Sound is no longer "muffled".
