  Re: Serrapeptase and Other Remedies for IPF

My mother is diagnosed with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis in 2014 and under taking medication as per pulmonologist advice (in India). 10 different medicines, including Pirfiner (200 mg) thrice a day

After recent visit to the clinic and disease progression, clinicians indicated maximum survival of 1 year. My mother is under 16 hours of Oxygen support at home.

I had come across Earth Clinic through google, and read positive reviews from people affected by PF, but not very clear about the dosages and combination of alternative medicines they are taking. Will it be possible to arrest the disease progression, by taking serrapeptase (enzyme) and Hydrogen peroxide. However I am not sure how to get these alternative medicine in India. Does anyone know where to buy them to ship to India? Can anyone advice the dosage for these medicines.

2. Can we take these medication along with other medication given by Pulmonologist?

Looking forward to hear from you at the earliest

Hi Anjali,

I sugest not go for steroidal treatment for LP event hough it is mostly recommended by dermatologists, as it only relieves it for few months. When you stop your steroidal treatment (especially oral medication) it reverts and the lesions become more aggresive. I am dealing it with for past 7-8 years and this was my observation. Try to go for more natural remedies, such as use applying aloe vera gel and consumption of the juice.

Also, let me know if you have found some home remedy to treat.

I was searching for a treatment for tinnitus yesterday and was told by an elderly phamacist that aspartame, the junk they substitute for sugar to make things like drinks diet, is believed to be one cause of ringing in the ears. Mine started back in 2004 after a ruptured aneurism. I figure that I was lucky to be alive and was told that there is no cure, so I have been living with it for the last 13 years, and now I hear about ACV and think, I have this in my cabinet ALL the time. Cant wait to try it out and see how it works.

Hi, try using a water pik. That has solved the issue of feeling something stuck between my teeth and gums on numerous occasions. It works when dental floss doesn't get whatever is stuck out. I often follow with a 3% hydrogen peroxide gargle for about 60 seconds. Good luck!

Luke, you can:

1. Ask a dentist to have a look-see.

2. Rinse often with seasalt water.

3. You can apply a clay/activated carbon pack.

Hey Lena,

This is Dave, and I've written on this subject a lot and think you were posting to me although you didn't mention me by name. But I'll assume it was to me the question was intended. OK; you ask about "blinking" while doing the eye exercise. Great question. The answer is, go as long as your own eyes will let strict rule here. The point is to let the stygmatized eye muscles re-figure with the non-dominant eye. So if you can gaze at a distant object for 10 seconds, then switch to the dominant eye for ten seconds, then repeat and finally, both together for ten seconds....that is just fine. You'll SEE the difference immediately. Or should....every set of eyes is unique.

Vitamin E for Angina Pain

Angina pain can be dramatically helped by using natural (not synthetic) Vitamin E. I've recently seen another case of this; where a lady had multiple stints placed in her after a heart attack but the angina continued. After being on 400 IUs of natural E daily, the Angina stopped. I understand that it is best to start E at 200 IUs...taking either d-alpha tocopherol or mixed tocopherols. After taking 200 IUs for a few weeks, increase to 400 and so forth. I've been on 800 IUs of E for 30 years.

Hi Baldev,

I am suffering from skin LP from past 7-8 years with no luck with steriodal and cartisone creams. On stopping the steriodal medication(oral), I have been hit by LP more badly, so now I am trying out on the natural remedies like aloe vera. Can you please suggest any other home remedies? if you are aware other than the Borax application to the lesion.

Borax for Yeast, Bone Density, Inflammation, Etc.

Borax for Yeast, Bone Density, Inflammation, Etc.

After reading much about boron in the form of Borax, I decided to give it a try not knowing what my results would be. I have Hashimoto (autoimmune thyroiditis), osteoporosis, undiagnosed gastro intestinal issue (like IBS, but gastroenterologist did not diagnose me after a year of seeing her! ), high blood sugar and cholesterol (total and LDL), extreme thirst for years, and have had inflammation issues for a while, especially in finger joints, but others as well including pain in left upper back for months now which I was starting to think may be some form of arthritis developing. A few weeks prior to starting the Borax, I had some sudden strange pains in my upper right chest and got unusual noxious feelings in my stomach (then) a few times. All of those unusual symptoms were strange, scary, and had just begun.

I made the liquid form using a 3 cup ball jar, mixing 3/4 rounded teaspoon of Borax into just over 3 cups of purified water.

I admit, I should have started out with 1 tsp of the above mixture in water for a few days, but I went right into the 1 tsp. of the Borax/water mix in water 3 times a day. I still had the extreme thirst when I began. Within a few days of starting the Borax, I got terrible stomach pains that stopped me cold. They did not last long, but I also had strange pains in other areas of my abdomen. I attribute the really bad stomach pains to yeast die off (herxheimer effect), because the very next day, not only did the extreme thirst go away and has not returned, but I lost all craving for sugar or other carbs (chips, etc.) and to date (6 weeks from beginning the Borax), those cravings have not returned. My appetite is somewhat suppressed, but I do eat when I'm hungry. During the first couple of weeks, I got achy all over. It was almost unbearable. So far, I have done 3 weeks on, 1 week off, and two weeks on. During the one week off, the thirst and cravings did not return. All abdominal pains have disappeared, the pain in my upper right back has disappeared, and after 6 weeks, the aches in my body have totally subsided, which has paralleled the inflammation, which has been much better to non-exhistent in the last few weeks. My gastrointestinal issues have been much better. I make/drink kefir, which has helped my gut issues greatly, but I've noticed that gut issues have improved more in the last two weeks.

With all the positive effects, I really could not wait to go back on after the one week break. I cannot wait to see what the effects are after 3 months. I plan on doing 3 weeks on, 1 week off every month. I cannot wait for my next blood work to see if my blood sugar is improved, and the next dexiscan for any bone density improvement.

My daughter has Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis. I certainly hope that she gives this natural "remedy" a chance to see if it will help her as well.

I look forward to the next 1.5 months and beyond with Borax! Thank you for all the information and posts! Love reading others' experiences and hope mine is encouraging for others as well.

These spasms can be extremely painful. I'll begin to use the breathing exercise mentioned by Jergar.
At least it makes you feel good when done.

According to Mayo Clinic a peppermint sweet may calm the nerves and prevent attacks.

Stress is bad, I've never had an attack being in motion, exercising (walking, cycling, jogging, badminton, tennis etc...).

The most painful ones coming at work...have to calm down :).

ACV for Strep Throat

I had sore throat which got progressively worse over three days. (Not positive if strep but looked like it from previous times I had had it). Glands swollen and lots of mucus in my throat.

I read on Earthclinic to gargle and swallow Apple Cider Vinegar & water mix. 1:3 ratio.

I use ACV for many ailments and it never fails me and this time is no different.

After three days of throat agony I swallowed then gargled the ACV mixture. I spit out a bunch of phlegm & went to bed. In the morning my throat
Was 90% better! It's a miracle really. Almost an instant cure! It burns on a sore throat but worth it!

Memey: "He has had horrible problems with acid reflux and has to eat at least 5 times a day to avoid it, have tried Oil of Oregano soft gels but they were way way too hars on his tummy.

This is a direct symptom of elimination failure. Try cleaning & stimulating the Gallbladder with Dr Christopher's "Liver/Gall" herbal formula. Resume the Oregano with added one spoon of Milled Flax Seed to clean the Colon. ACV and Lemon Juice is good for increasing Bile flow.

The Hot Baths will help detox & elimination as will any sweating like Sauna or Steam Room.

  Re: Infection Under a Very Old Dental Bridge

Dear Cathey,

It sounds like the teeth are abscessed. You could try holding a garlic clove between your teeth until the burning stops. Garlic is a natural antibiotic. There are several encouraging posts here on EC about using a garlic clove for a tooth abscess. In fact, it was my first search and successful remedy from here.

Getting a waterpik waterflosser would help keep debris and slivers of food from getting caught under the the crowns. This should be done after every time you eat. Since the bridge is old this could have been going on for a long time so it's going to take awhile to heal. After you floss, swish with a cap full of peroxide with a little water for two minutes. Oil pulling three times an hour has been recommended here and would also help until that infection is gone. Good luck!
