Never use tap water. there have been cases of parasitic infection and death. even municipal sources (cases in mississippi, texas, and washington states) can have contaminants that won't affect you through ingestion, but if given the chance to lodge in the dark damp nasal passages by inhalation or irrigation can develop into something dangerous. incredibly rare, but why risk it to save some money or time instead of using the right things

Sodium Thiosulfate for Heavy Metal Detox, Allergic Skin Reactions

I love this stuff!! I've used it on and off for 10 years.

After reading Ted's posts on it, for the various uses, it's a must in my medicine cupboard. I use it every time I go to the dentist and have any tooth work done (I've had all my old amalgams removed, but still deal with brain fog, concentration and sometimes fatigue)

I use it once a week as a long term metal detox (3 drops with 1000mg vit C in water) And also for toxin exposure from paint (my lungs, kidneys and liver sometimes don't feel good after breathing fumes of even the eco friendly latex paint)

I have used it for allergic skin reactions from applied skin products and accidentally getting bleach on my skin. (Apply the liquid diluted with a little water, and rinse off till it's no longer slippery and then wash again with soap and water.)

We love you Ted!!!!

Adjust Zinc and Copper Ratios for Morton's Neuroma

Sat, 01 May 21 18:34:54 -0700

I stumbled on a blog a couple years ago where someone said to read a book about zinc/copper ratios in your body. She said she healed hers after figuring out she was eating too much copper food. The book was called “Why am I always so tired?” by Ann Louise Gittelman, PhD.

She states in there that there are a lot of issues related to zinc deficiency, including Morton's Neuroma. Copper is very high in foods like grains, beans, nuts (including chocolate) and dried fruits. I was eating a lot of this food and also functioning more on a plant-based diet with occasional fish/eggs so it made sense to me that I was over eating copper foods. I was also hiking a lot and eating nuts and dried fruit for energy on the trails. She does indicate that even if you eat meat that you can still be zinc deficient if you're still over eating high copper foods. She also states in the book that you can take sulfur to help detox excess copper in the diet. MSM is a sulfur compound that may help with this condition.

After reading the book, I took zinc 50 mg twice a day and started eating more animal protein and cut back on the high copper foods and it went away within a day or two. That made me believe that this was the reason for my flare ups. Maybe this is not for everyone's condition of Morton's, but in case it helps anybody I thought I would let you know that it did work for me and it might be worth looking into.

The book has a lot more detail about it so it would be beneficial to read. It does not specifically talk about MSM just sulfur, but I recently read it again as I had another flareup and had forgotten what I had done before and saw the information on taking sulfur as well which I did not do the first time so I am trying out the MSM as well as zinc to see if this helps for long term results. Will update later on that one.

To Debra Parker (Brisbane), I am very sorry for your troubles. It may be a longshot (but an inexpensive longshot) but I have had some decent success with using magnesium oxide (solid pill) and magnesium hydroxide (Milk of Magnesia) in dealing with bone pain issues I believe are related to calcium/autoimmune issues. The solid pill form helped moderately with the pain...the Milk of Magnesia dramatically (and surprisingly) helped. Given the length and severity of your symptoms, you might want to try the Milk of Magnesia first...but ramp up to std dosage, in case of adverse effects. I know this sounds bizarre (I was very surprised myself) but magnesium does play a big role in calcium/bone regulation and related pain issues (you can Google). And for some reason, the Milk of Magnesia formulation really amplifies the benefits (perhaps due to magnesium dosage or absorbability). I wish you good luck.

Hi Ted,

My wife has a low grade Oligodendroglioma brain tumour. What can we do to help prolong her life and maybe limit the number of tablets she takes every day. ie anti-seizure, nausea

Thank you, Sam

EC: So sorry, Ted had a stroke in 2015 and has been unable to correspond since then. Hopefully, some of our other amazing readers will offer some ideas.

If it was me, I'd skip the commercial probiotics and do a quick and intimate ferment.

Rinse off (don't wash) and finely chop about a cup of - organic, if available - onions, put them into a mason jar, sprinkle a heaping teaspoon of sea salt over them (the trace minerals in the sea salt will help jump start the process). Set the jar aside.

In another jar or a large glass, put one tsp of ACV and 1/2 tsp of baking soda and let it foam. Don't move or stir it, just let it fizz. It will quickly fill with carbon dioxide. Set aside.

Squish your onions down into the jar to release their liquid, add filtered water until there's about an inch of water covering them, and "pour" the carbon dioxide gas from the ACV/baking soda fizz over the top of your ferment - not the liquid, just the gas which is heavier than air and will pour out and fall just like water - to displace the oxygen in your ferment jar and attract the yeast, place a ferment weight or sealed ziploc with some water in it on top of the veggies to keep them underwater, cover with a coffee filter or clean cloth and a rubber band and just leave it on your counter. Remove the coffee filter and the bag of water and taste your ferment after 12 hours, noting the salt content. If it's too salty, reassemble and let it ferment another 12 hours then eat a couple small spoons between meals, as if it were soup - I.e. some onion with some liquid - remove the plastic bag, put on a regular lid and put it in the fridge.

The probiotics you want are YOURS. You want YOUR yeast to ferment the sugar in YOUR onions in YOUR kitchen fed by YOUR environment. And, quite frankly, the messier your house, the more of YOU it will have to work with and the better it will be. If you're a neatnik, put it on your bedside table and arrange the bed as if you've just gotten up - blanket pushed aside exposing the sheets and your pillow.

Also, I would do a nasal rinse with plain, slightly warm, lightly sea-salted water with a scant teaspoon of the ferment juice in it.

Your ferment will produce the EXACT probiotics YOU need at THAT time so, discard whatever's left once the problem is resolved. It shouldn't take long.

I wouldn't take anything else while I'm doing this and certainly don't add anything "special" to your ferment. No herbs or extracts or anything you think is "medicine-y". And, certainly, no antibiotics. What you want to do is fix the secondary issue of the damage the antibiotics have done so your body can fix itself. Basically, you want the ferment to produce the natural and EXACT probiotics/ANTIbiotics your body needs.

The problem with antibiotics is two-fold - your "probiotics" eat the "bad" biotics and a LOT of them. Therefore, the "bad" biotics multiply a lot faster than the probiotics - like dragonflies and the mosquitoes they eat - so, when you take antibiotics - whether natural or prescription - you kill the "bad" biotics. If you use something natural, your "probiotics" will reduce their population due to starvation creating another good environment for the faster multiplying "bad" biotics and if you use prescription antibiotics, the "probiotics" just get killed off along with the "bad" biotics so, either way, your interference is going to create an imbalance and environment to quickly multiplying "bad" biotics by reducing or eliminating the population of your slower multiplying "probiotics".

The homemade ferment is going to create new "probiotics", specific to you as well as whatever you need, at that point in time. Once the issue is resolved, you may want to keep some on hand and eat a couple spoons of ferment soup every few days or add them to a smoothie or top your salad with some probiotic onions. You can leave a little liquid once you've finished the onions and add a tablespoon to the water, as a sort of "starter", for your next batch. You don't need it but it will ferment even a little faster or you may want to chop your onion - or other veggies - a bit chunkier which will take a little longer to ferment.

FYI - fermented SALSA is AWESOME. You can chop everything but the tomatoes - onion, garlic, peppers - leave it to ferment for a day, then add your tomatoes and leave it on the counter for a couple of hours before you refrigerate. That way, your tomatoes won't "mush" but it's good either way. Of course, you can add some cilantro if you want or just top your salsa with it when you eat it. I don't like the flavor smothering, "over-cilantroed" stuff that's all the rage these days but if YOU do, go for it.

Dietary Changes for Uveitis Iritis

Fri, 30 Apr 21 18:22:00 -0700

MCAS protocol:

First, I want to say that I have had uveitis iritis as well as intermediate, and posterior, and underlying Sjogren's for 22 years. In the fifth year, I used to get excruciating pain in my eye no matter how many drops I used and be blind for a week out of every month. It was suggested in a university article to try an allergy Elimination Diet.

To me, it seemed everything was causing it and I didn't know what to eliminate without not having enough to eat. I came to find that all the nightshades except for potatoes and I thought, tomatoes, were usually the culprit. I had not eliminated Tomatoes, but when there was a nationwide tomato shortage, I was forced to. Hard to tell if anything else had helped it because I did do a liver cleanse juice fast the week later ( do not recommend, I lost too much weight).

MCAS (Mast Cell Activation Syndrome) protocol!

My eyes cleared up and my Sjogren's improved. However, it had not gone away entirely and when I got around animals I had a known allergy to, the condition started to come back. I had gone back to eating things I had been afraid to before I found out it was tomatoes, and my ana levels were high.

For the suggestion of a friend, I went ahead and removed major food allergens and had to remove all grain as I had just got fibromyalgia from taking doctor's oral steroids. The ANA levels dropped down to nothing. Still, however, my Sjogren's was now back to being seen on blood work, and my uveitis was present and worsened with chemical sensitivity. 3 years ago I had an eye doctor say that the cells they see when the eyes are inflamed are mast cells. I had heard about Mast Cell Activation Syndrome from my chemical sensitivity group online.

Having to research low histamine for another condition, I came across a histamine dietary protocol. Believe it or not, it happens to be suggested for Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (this and low FODMAP which has been helping my IBS, best to work with a nutritionist or a certified app)! Every food it said was High histamine, for the most part, I had already found flared the uveitis. I've continued further and removed the rest of the food's it's suggested.

My saliva has come back in my mouth, tears back to my eyes, although my skin has yet to fully get hydrated. My uveitis seems to be more peaceful to me. I will continue posting updates. I am very excited about the success of this!

I have nebulized hydrogen peroxide at the start of flu symptoms, which quickly resolved. I found that a 3% hydrogen peroxide solution worked well and was easily tolerated.

For decades physicians have seen patients benefit from nebulization of hydrogen peroxide for short-term use during viral infection.

I think this might work well, but just be aware of the high sodium content and stop immediately if your blood pressure goes up.

● each tablet contains: potassium 135 mg

● each tablet contains: sodium 309 mg

● Alka-Seltzer Gold in water contains principally the antacids sodium citrate and potassium citrate

Hi Daniel. You didn't mention your age, but many people lose the fat pockets underneath their eyes as they age. You could try collagen supplements and red light led masks, but I think the only thing that really works if they are really sunken is to get the areas injected with a filler, which believe it or not, is made from a very popular ingredient used in many topical skin formulas and also taken as a supplement for joint pain - hyaluronic acid. If you find something else that restores your fat pockets, let us know! Good luck.
