Hey Steve, have you happened to try the Diamond G Forest turpentine from the States before? If so I'm curious as to how the taste and smell of the Bio-Option compares to the Diamond G Forest one.

If you are still using the Bio-Option turpentine and know others who have used the Bio-Option turpentine with no issues (other than the expected Herxheimer reactions), please let me know. I was looking to source the Diamond G Forest turpentine, but shipping and customs charges is a blockade right now.

Thanks in advance!

I have some. Have not had Covid. Have not been vaccinated. I know there are measurements on the tube, but how do you measure for humans? Thank you.

How much Vitamin D were you taking? I upped my dosage due to Covid. I experienced frequent UTI's. Perhaps that was the reason.

Hi Joseph! If you've read many of the recent posts and comments, you probably know what I'm going to say - colloidal silver. Low concentration, a teaspoon at a time.

Just based on what I've been seeing over the pasts couple of weeks, with regard to testimonials, rather than journal articles, It doesn't appear to matter all that much regarding the quality, how it's made or even how concentrated it is as people have been curing all sorts of diseases since long before "the blue man"..

I would stick with low concentrations simply because it appears they work as well if not better than higher concentrations, which makes sense to me as it's actually a trace mineral that would have been acquired through food and water, all over the world, back in our wilder, barefoot days - I.e. prehistory.

If I had issues, I would take a teaspoon of 10ppm 3 or 4 times per day, swishing it around in the mouth for a minute or so before swallowing.

I purchased some, first, and used that externally and around the house before I knew I was going to purchase a generator but, based on others reports, regarding reversing cancers, MS and rheumatoid arthritis from way back.

I had already received my generator before coming across an old video of a super simple way of making it, but I don't regret it as it runs on AC in a specific and consistent manner so I don't even have to think about it but if I hadn't already purchased one, I'd have purchased a bunch of rechargeable, lower current 9 volt batteries and be making it with one of those with fine silver wires hooked onto the terminals, being careful to keep them apart, for 1 hour, 8 oz of distilled water at a time and, taking a teaspoon several times per day and I would expect those 8 ounces to last me a week and when things started shifting, I might back off and continue in search of a "sweet spot".

I don't mix treatments but I also don't consider the regular ingestion of cayenne a treatment and, besides, colloidal silver has shown no signs of interfering with other treatments whether natural or allopathic which is only natural as it is actually a nutrient.

I also don't consider a castor oil "belly rub of happiness" a treatment - just because it feels so dang good. So I'd do that, as well, and, in fact, I DO do that whenever I think about it and have a few minutes to just relax - and I do that just because I want to.

When I said in another post that "Some have reported little, slow, or no effect until they started swishing.", I was talking about colloidal silver but the reports of better efficacy with swishing have been for a variety of problems - not just for teeth or mouth issues. Apparently, it just works better when you swish it a minute or so before you swallow it which makes sense because it could go straight to the blood stream without passing through the gut while you're swishing so, not only would it be getting to the blood stream to clear up infection anywhere in the body but you'd also be getting more of it, as it would be distributed before the gut got hold of it.

ANYway - for all issues. Not just mouth and teeth issues. As I said, some have reported that if they don't swish, it doesn't work as well. Noticeably.

Plus I'm talking about 10ppm - which I cut with a little water because my very first batch turned out to be 15 ppm but I'm just going to add another pint of distilled water so I'll have a quart and a half of 10ppm instead of just a quart, which should last more than a month, doing it twice per day. Once in the morning and once before bed.

PLUS you can brush your teeth with it! And it will stop bleeding gum, clear up gingivitis - which, apparently, gets passed on to the heart - and all that other jolly "rot" - if you'll pardon the pun. Of course, I don't think I'd swallow what I brushed my teeth with...just what I gargled with and I'm wondering if one swished and gargled and brushed one's teeth for like 2 minutes, altogether, whether one would even need to swallow it.

Plus, I suspect that even those who don't believe in colloidal silver would still like it as a mouthwash and get some good benefit from it.

Anyway, I can't say that this is my last rave about colloidal silver but I'll try to keep it down.

Dear Prioris - re your advice to retire OTC (over the counter) Wisdom and to take Prescription meds unless they can't get access:

My response: With medical appointments being MONTHS and MONTHS out, and if covered, maybe they did what they needed/could afford to do &/or didn't have to wait & maybe die for, and lived long enough to maybe or maybe no longer need to get your 'approved' Prescription enzymes.

EC: ???

Prioris was mentioning home remedies like blackstrap molasses, not OTC, and specifically helpful enzyme supplements that are thought to help dissolve blood clots. These enzymes are NOT prescription, they can be bought in any health food store or online.

When using essential oils and diffusers - PLZ Watch out for pets.

Some oils are quite toxic to cats (more so) and dogs too, apparently. New warnings being issued by vets, not to be ignored.

I'd personally love to try the lavender mixed in with coconut oil but my pets LOVE love coconut oil (they try to 'clean' my legs and arms) but the lavender is a big toxin to them. So, I hardly every diffuse anymore but if I do, it's from a different room, blowing a small fan on the mist, and only for an hour.

If you are posting to help other people, stating your mass and the amount of D3 along with your 25 hydroxy levels would help more than general statements.

The cause of Kidney damage directly is not D3 as Healthy kidneys are rich with vitamin D receptors and play a major role in turning vitamin D into its active form.

The problem with taking high levels of D3 is that it causes hypercalcemia. This can be avoided by increasing levels of K2 (menaquinone -7) which takes calcium out of the blood and soft tissues placing it where it needs to be, bones, etc.

Want to agree with Catriona from Dublin about too much Vitamin D being not good. After contracting long-haul Covid, it was only with taking extra Vitamin D and Zinc that finally brought an end to 4 months inflammation in my chest wall and joints. So I kept taking both for the next year as I wanted to ensure I wouldn't go through that again. But about 3 months ago, I began having cloudy urine that became over time stronger smelling and eventually became Intermittent Cystitis.

With no infection present, I realized it may be time to reevaluate my nutritional supplements. After I eliminated the extra Vitamin D from my daily regimen, my bladder immediately began to calm down. 6 weeks later, I now have only occasional issues whenever my daily vitamin D intake rises above the norm. I maxed out on D-- if I hadn't cut it back, I could have done lasting damage to my urinary tract. I've since read that long term vitamin D excess has been linked to kidney problems. Definitely don't want that!

Colloidal Silver Mouthwash

Thanks to Madelyn of Idaho for sparking the idea but, as some have reported greater efficacy with regard to colloidal silver when they started to swish it in their mouth for a minute or two before swallowing, I just tried it and not only does my mouth feel fresh but it actually leaves that "feeling" of the after effects of mint mouthwash. Not the flavor but that...sort of..."coolness" that mint leaves behind. It's perfect! I can even feel that minty coolness in my nasal passages!

I also read reports of people swishing and then, keeping it in their mouth and breathing deeply over it for bronchial infections.

Swish, breathe, gargle, swallow and you're good to go!! And, taken in that context, the taste of it sort of makes sense to the brain so you can think, "tastes like mouthwash" and get no argument from the bod. VERY interesting!! Awesome, even, I would say! Safe for children and probably an equally effective or almost as effective, shot to their immunity whether they swallow it or spit it out! It even gives you that "coolness" you get with mint when you drink water after? If you know what I mean...

Flax Oil and Cottage Cheese for Arthritis

Hi Michael from Down Under,

Thank you for your post, lovely to hear from you again and learn that you are keeping well.

I can relate to you 'almost becoming a monk' by eating just once a day. I discovered a couple of years ago that I was pre-diabetic and now follow a low carb diet. However, occasionally, my resolve goes and I eat the things I shouldn't.

You mention that your evening meals are 'creeping' away from meat, and this seems to be a global trend. For a long time it has been recommended that we reduce the amount of meat we eat, especially if we suffer from any form of arthritis. However, Michael Moseley, author of both the 500 and 800 Diet, was recently quoted in the Daily Mail as saying he would not give up meat!

I'm still following D Johanna Budwig's protocol, having two bowls of the cottage cheese/flaxseed oil a day. She also recommends to cut out meat and replace it with legumes and nuts. The diet is aimed at people suffering with cancer, but it has been found to help other conditions such as arthritis, hence my interest. How long I follow the diet remains to be seen.

She also believes everything in the universe has a vibrational level, and this resonates with me as in the past I've done Reiki healing. Have I ever cured anyone? The answer has to be 'no', but it does make one aware that we are more than purely the physical.

The golden sultanas in gin sound a bit decadent, Michael. Are you sure they will improve my arthritis? What will the neighbours think if they see me pushing a shopping trolley around the local supermarket containing a large bottle of Gordon's Gin?

Shocking news about the high number of young New Zealanders committing suicide, and that New Zealand has the third highest obesity figures in the world. Bang goes the mental image I've always had of fit young New Zealanders surfing through white tipped waves under an eternally blue sky. Or was I thinking of Australia and Bondi beach!

So pleased that the Bicarbonate of Soda worked for your wife's eyes. It's good for so many things. Will not be long before she's posting on Earth Clinic!

By the way, I went looking for Robin Hood in Sherwood Forest the other day. Couldn't find him but it sure was beautiful under that canopy of trees. Saw the thousand year old Major Oak, and it's still going strong.

Stay well, and my best wishes to you both.

I haven't purchased this item, nor have I tried it however I have viewed enough about how it can significantly help your Neuropathy pain and other ailments including Anxiety with a home kit that I will purchase in time. Rebuilder medical inc., $900 yes it is expensive, however for what it does at home is well worth it. You can plug it in and use to treat Severe Anxiety at home, it stops any Anxiety because it is tough to experience pain when you are totally placed in peaceful mood. Neuropathy is also treated, however if not treated you can suffer much pain and possible amputation. 877 717-5487.

Invented by Dr Phillips. It is FDA cleared money back guaranteed, lifetime warranty. Goggle your questions, view a demonstration. I myself will purchase this product when I can afford it.

Maybe try just taking it for the second half of your cycle-after you ovulate. I noticed the same problem when I was taking Omega 3 supplements but it didn't shorten my cycle if I waited until after I ovulated to take it each month.

  MSM for Back Pain

I am in complete agreement about the doctors and unnecessary (and harmful) surgery! I had a herniated disc -lumbar L4-L5 -apparently (i just doubt everything they say now). After a year of excruciating pain, I agreed to a spinal fusion. This was in 2013 and of course they gave me a lot of pain meds. Now it's 2021 and over the past two years it's so bad I can't walk without being in pain & it keeps getting worse.

Very grateful I found this site and will try the apple cider vinegar also MSM since I happen to have some I just bought but haven't tried. Thank you for your story.
