Another Kidney Stone Bites the Dust With Lemons!

I had a sudden onset of my fifth kidney stone... five in about 10 years. First one was on right side, then next three on left and this one last Saturday on right. Somewhat sharp pain like previous ones and getting worse as day went on. By the time my wife and I were back from a little day trip, all I could do was sit quietly on the couch and not move too much.

I managed to get four lemons squeezed and combined with eight glasses of water in a container. (So one half lemon juice per glass of water.) And began drinking. One glass of water every two hours.

After fifth glass, I realized my pain was gone. By end of evening no more blood in urine that was the bright kind. Next morning, no pain at all. Continued drinking lemon juice just to make sure. So I didn't even have to drink quarter cup of olive oil. That was the fastest of all my previous stones to pass. The previous four took about 3 to 5 days to pass.

So, if something worked for leishmaniasis, it would be helpful and important to offer more details. What kind of leishmaniasis did you have? Cutaneous? Mucosal? Visceral? What symptoms did you have? How exactly did you fix the leishmaniasis problem? How much of the ingredients? How did you take them? Put them on the skin? Ingest them? How often and for how long? I would appreciate it if you could write more. Thank you.

Garlic Oil for Sty

I developed a sty in my right eye. At first I thought that I had something in my eye that was causing itching and pain. I tried eye drops, Apple cider vinegar and warm compresses but I only got temporary relief. Within a couple of days I had three styes (one on the eyelid and two inside). I popped open a Garlic Oil soft gel, put some on a cotton swab, applied it directly on each sty twice a day for 3 days. They are all gone.

Lynn, I have the same reaction of feeling sunburn on my hands and face after taking 4 mg of Boron. It does mention a dose of borax of 1/8 tsp for fungal infections or other health issues, but that is a big dose to start with, 1/8 tsp will have about 50mg of Boron in it, I only took 4 mg today and I burned on my hands and face. I am considering reducing to 2 mg/day for a week, with added magnesium, and see if my burning reaction subsides, then increase. Have you tried taking it with aspirin as mentioned above - did it reduce the burning?

Carol, thank you so much for your reply! I hope you can find some relief from this little relaxation technique. In my case, things got better slowly. After the first week I could go hours without thinking about it. After that, it could be days without thinking about it. Now it comes and goes, mostly around supper time. But I know it will go away in a few hours.

I remember the Burning tongue feeling getting a little better after a teeth cleaning. I was worried all this playing around in there would make it worse, but no. I remember going to the grocery store after the appointment, running my tongue over my teeth and feeling: oh! It feels really clean. I KNOW it is clean so I don't need to check 50 times an hour!! I didn't make the connection then, but looking back and knowing what I know now, this was a big clue!

Apple Cider Vinegar for Angioma Removal

Brilliant! I've always had a small Angioma on my chest which got a lot bigger during pregnancy and would often bleed. It ended up being larger that tip of a cotton bud. I had gone to doctors to get it checked out and she confirmed just an Angioma, but she wasn't really sure how to go about removing it without excessive bleeding or scarring! I put up with it for a couple of years, never wearing low cut or strapless tops as it was very noticeable and impossible to cover with concealer! A few weeks ago I came across the apple cider remedy and thought I'd give it ago.

I pricked it with a needle and applied apple cider vinegar with a cotton bud for around 15 minutes 3 times a day. The Angioma started turning black and dry looking after 3 days then by 1 week the whole thing was black and starting to lift up at the sides! By day 10 the scab fell off revealing a small patch of flat red irritated looking skin. No more Angioma!

I've been using coconut oil on scar everyday and it's practically gone! Amazing, I should of done this years ago!

I did spill the apple cider vinegar onto the surrounding skin which made it a bit burnt and irritated but that went away after a few days! I'm glad I persisted with this treatment as I was worried when it started to turn really black and scabby and wanted to stop the treatment.

This really works and I'm so happy to feel less self conscious and able to wear strappy tops and swimmers again!

KIT,,,,,,, our BSM is 3% iron and there is no way a molasses can have 20%. I think that is 20% of what the FDA recommends daily. Suggest you reread the label. I use a tbsp of BSM in my coffee every morning. My back PT is at the age where she needs iron, but pills cause her grief. She was not aware of the iron content of BSM. I cannot believe what health folks and MD's don't know. They need to read EC.

Daughter from Atlanta came in with a bad cold. I put her on apple juice and Echinacea and Gold Seal and she was good the next day. Folks need to understand that it is your immune system that solves your ailment. Pharma can help your symptoms, but not solve your problem. Your body does that.

Our pioneers learned about Echinacea from the Western Native Americans.


 Re: Need Help for Caffeine Intolerance

Hi Suma,

I tried to give up coffee for decades without success. And then, after I managed to get through the initial die offs from taking Lugol's iodine and managed to work up to 50 mg/day (on the third try), I no longer felt the need or urge to drink it anymore. That said, to be fair, when I try to do certain types of work, I still find myself usually feeling drowsy and needing to drink coffee. However, otherwise...

I also think Michael's suggestion to try switching to a caffeine-free Chicory or Dandelion alternative is a great one. One reason why you need the caffeine in the first place (as with me and most of the rest of us these days) is probably that you're loaded with toxins. And drinking an alternative beverage with dandelion could kill two-and-a-half birds with one stone: I.e. help get you off of the coffee and caffeine and help you detox at the same time (by helping you remove existing toxins and by stopping the consumption of additional toxins and the associated self acidification).

Here's a highly rated, health looking coffee alternative that I'd like to try myself (although it's only for the health benefits since, much to my surprise, I don't miss the coffee taste at all):

Best wishes,


P.S. You might also want to research Borax therapy and detoxing in general, including how to reduce the toxins you take in on an ongoing basis. I mention Borax therapy in general since I gather it's supposed to be on the very short list of ways to detox fluoride which I suspect may be one of, if not the primary, culprit causing your fatigue (as well as mine) for all of these years and putting us on a disease path that none of us should be on.

It would seem like a waste but because our blood is high in iron it can actually be toxic to some. Also, those that could take it, even if they have hemochromatosis, their bodies would reject it as a foreign body.

Blood donor organizations will not allow a person with hemochromatosis to donate as it is unusable to others. Doctors instead prescribe therapeutic phlebotomies. In which the blood is destroyed.

Three suggestions:

1. Bromelain on an empty stomach (which is supposed to be just as effective as prescription painkillers without the negative side effects.


2. Turmeric (one teaspoon) with a few dashes of black pepper in a tablespoon or two of virgin or extra virgin coconut oil. (a remedy I learned about on

3. Borax. I would also begin supplementing with boron using Borax as described on this site and as Dr. Walter Last describes it in "The Borax Conspiracy" and "The Ultimate Microbial Cleanse":

Finally, it's just a fact of life that detox symptoms usually accompany both therapies and most other healing protocols. Be prepared for them by educating yourself about them and doing things to minimize them, but don't let them dissuade you from your healing path. In all likelihood, the worse they are, the more you need them.

And don't give up. Keep fighting and researching. There's an answer out there that will work for you. And if you're persistent enough, you'll find it.

 Re: Urgent Help Needed for Mother With Multiple Symptoms

Mon, 16 Jan 17 09:55:55 -0800
Posted by Harry (Los Angeles) on 01/15/2017

I think I know how you feel when you say you don't know where to start. I've been there. I know it's overwhelming.

Needless to say, your mom has a number of pressing issues to deal with all at once. So, hopefully, your mom's in a situation where she's both able and willing to make major changes and follow relatively strict protocols.

That said, if it were my mother, here's what I would be thinking:

First, for the breathing: Bill Munro's hydrogen peroxide inhalation therapy. You can do a search for it on this site.

Second, the constipation... Iodine (with supplemental minerals including organic selenium, magnesium, and zinc) and dietary changes (dramatically reducing or eliminating sugar and near sugars, eliminating meat and dairy, and consuming lots of good fats, especially coconut oil). I strongly encourage you to research iodine for yourself by watching and learning from a few excellent YouTube videos by Dr. Brownstein and Dr. Group.

Third, digestion. Pork pancreas (digestive enzymes) and HCL (hydrochloric acid)... Unless, God forbid, she has some very serious gastrointestinal disease, this will help her digestive issues and help her begin to get some much needed nutrition.

Fourth, the UTI... Borax: Vaginal insertion (in a large capsule) and drunk dissolved in distilled or otherwise purified water as described on this site and as Dr. Walter Last describes it in "The Borax Conspiracy" and "The Ultimate Microbial Cleanse":

Fifth, Vitamin D and Vitamin C to aid the absorption of everything else and Ubiquinol, a good chromium supplement (like chromium polynicotinate), and R-Lipoic acid for the diabetes and associated complications.

Sixth, get her lymphatic system flowing any way you can -- standing with her on a rebounder if she can do it, walking if she can't do that, deep breathing if she can do neither, or lymphatic massage and skin brushing if she can do none of the preceding.

Seventh, detox. Iodine and Borax and Pork Pancreas and Vitamin C and lymphatic work should all assist with the detox.

Eighth, reduce the inflow of new toxic challenges by as much as possible dramatically reducing or eliminating sugar, dairy, and meat, all canned food, drugs (both prescription and non-prescription) and plastic food containers and protecting her as much as possible from fluoride and chlorine by eliminating fluoride toothpaste and getting good water (preferably) and air filters.

Incidentally, it's just a fact of life that detox symptoms usually accompany both therapies and most other healing protocols. Be prepared for them by educating yourself about them and doing things to minimize them, but don't let them dissuade you from your healing path. In all likelihood, the worse they are, the more your mom needs them.

By the way, your mom's nail coming off (along with various other aspects of her condition) make me suspect fungal involvement. And the iodine, the borax, and the dietary changes should all go a long way in helping you/her resolve that challenge.

One more thing... I don't envy you the challenge of taking care of a family member with various pressing challenges at the same time that you need to get up to speed about various therapies. However, to the maximum degree possible, spend every possible second you can studying these therapies so that you can minimize the inevitable mistakes and correct them as quickly as possible.

Hi Anthony,

I'm no expert about kidney function and don't have much experience with it personally. However, I think you may find the video below very interesting, especially beginning at 9:30:

They touch on a study with mice who they say were effectively on kidney dialysis whose kidney function was restored with a high fat (what they refer to as a ketogenic) diet.

The two video participants, Dr. Mark Hyman and Dr. Carrie Diulus, say that most kidney issues are caused by diabetes and that a ketogenic diet is also a very effective strategy for managing or even reversing diabetes. And I recall Dr. Mercola raving about the benefits of a high fat diet for everybody, for the same reason, I think, that it doesn't cause blood sugar to fluctuate (and maybe for other reasons, too).

FWIW, I also seem to recall the amazing Charlotte Gerson saying that protein stresses the kidneys, especially animal and dairy proteins.

I hope you find it interesting and helpful.

P.S. Might I ask if you know why your kidney function is so impaired?

 Re: Remedies No Longer Helping Abnormal Menstrual Bleeding, Help!

Mon, 16 Jan 17 09:54:54 -0800
Posted by Harry (Los Angeles) on 01/15/2017

I second everything Janet wrote. Your heavy, painful periods and your cysts both point to an iodine deficiency, something you probably have in common with 90-95% of American women.

However, let me just add a few things... First, I urge you to educate yourself about iodine before beginning to take it so that you don't neglect to take the other nutrients you need to absorb it, including organic selenium, magnesium, and zinc. Also, you need to be prepared for the die-off symptoms so that they don't scare you away from continuing to take it. They're just a necessary part of the healing process.

For more on iodine, I would recommend watching some YouTube videos on iodine from Dr. Brownstein, reading the posts on EarthClinic from others about their experiences with iodine, and then supplementing with iodine religiously. If I concluded that I was iodine deficient, I would then do as Dr. Brownstein suggests and try to work up to a total daily dose of at least 50 mg per day for at least several months, and probably for the rest of my life. VERY IMPORTANT: Be sure to take the supplemental minerals he recommends along with the iodine -- especially selenium and magnesium. Specifically, as I recall, one doctor on YouTube says that failing to get enough selenium with your iodine can lead to Hashimoto's Disease.

What form of iodine is best? I don't know. However, despite the very good reviews given to nascent iodine and my respect for Edgar Cayce who I understand gave the formula for Atomidine in one of his readings and recommended it many times thereafter, I think I would use either the old tried and true Lugol's (I prefer 5%) or Iodoral (which, as I recall, is Dr. Brownstein's choice).

Whichever form you take, if you are iodine deficient (as the vast majority of us are), you'll probably experience an uncomfortable and potentially severe reaction as the iodine displaces the bromine, chlorine, and fluorine that your body has absorbed in its stead. To reduce that reaction, you can spread out the iodine into at least four or five doses, preferably more. Also, I gather that there's much less detox associated with iodine that's absorbed through your skin, although I also gather that 20% or less of the iodine you paint on your skin winds up getting absorbed.

That said, it's just a fact of life that detox symptoms are usually unavoidable. I recommend preparing yourself for them by educating yourselves about them and doing things to minimize them, but don't let them dissuade you from your healing path. In all likelihood, the worse those symptoms are, the more you need the iodine.

Also, study, study, study, study, and study some more. As you do, you'll be able to improve your protocol(s), reduce your inevitable mistakes, connect dots that confirm or refute your latest conclusions, stick with it through the inevitable healing crises, and thereby achieve the best possible state of health in the least possible time.

And piggybacking on Janet's comment again, I understand that other causes for estrogen dominance are dietary and environmental, in which case avoiding high estrogen foods, canned foods, plastic, and many other sources as well as eating more cruciferous vegetables should be part of the solution as well. There again, as with iodine, I think the issue is very important, but not simple. So educating yourself about it becomes an essential key to eliminating the estrogen issue and keeping it eliminated.

Finally, as I recall from reading the posts on Blackstrap Molasses, multiple contributors suggested that posters not getting results from taking it or who experienced negative side effects were probably taking it wrong — by not spreading it out sufficiently/taking too much at once. Perhaps it's worth experimenting with it by taking less or sipping it very slowly throughout the day.

HI U GOOD PEOPLE,,,,,,, if you are doing the flush, I hope you are drinking your apple juice. It's not mandatory, but helps. Also like Jessie, I did not lie, I just misspoke. Forgot that Sat. we are leaving for Grayton Beach, Fla. so we will do the actual flush on Thursday night. Suggest you stay with Fri. night going into the weekend.

There are additional things that will assist you:

Take about 4 to 8 capsules of 500 mg L-Ornithine for sleep and a heating pad on your left side to encourage your liver to flush. Have a bright flashlight so you can observe the toilet stones the next morning. We have learned to have all our solutions in jars and packed in an ice chest next to our bed. They go down better cold. Dr Clark says to use pink grapefruit, but we have used lemons, either works.

Well, if you are not doing the flush with us, then at least you're thinking about doing preventive things like Mama does.
