  Advantages of Fasting

I've just completed a 4-day water fast. I do not have a weight issues. I wanted to boost my immune system. I was amused by the friends who warned me that fasting could be dangerous and therefore I had to be careful, take it easy etc. Alas few people show the same amount of concern or are willing to advise friends who are eating too much sugar-loaded ready meals and sugar-loaded fizzy drinks to be careful because they are ruining their health!

Cashews for Joint Pain

I have been having knee joint aches for awhile. Three weeks ago, I had a craving for cashews and ate about 8 oz a day for 3 days. I noticed my knee aches were gone and all my joints felt younger and lubricated. I searched and found that along with cardio benefits there is also a benefit to joints. I now eat a handful of roasted cashews every morning and I can do squats without knee aches.

I have also noticed a nerve calming effect.

H Joanne,

As you are a nurse, I'd like to ask please if you would consider it safe for someone with asthma? I do have a nebuliser which I use only with Salmeterol to open my airways, when I have a viral infection. As my “tubes” are inflamed, of course I easily react adversely to things. Obviously concerned about Covid 19 too! Thank you, C. 🙂

Dick,

De combinatie van supplementen werkte heel goed voor mijn vriendin, maar ze had geen diagnose van de ziekte van Alzheimer. Als haar dokter de diagnose dementie had gesteld, zou ze precies dezelfde supplementen hebben geprobeerd uit wat ze me vertelt.

Cabbage for Kidney Discomfort

There has been tenderness in my lower back in the area of my kidneys for months. Fresh aloe vera gel, whole lemons in smoothies, and high dose ascorbic acid w/wo baking soda seem to have been the cause. I tried fresh lemon juice, Ted's lemon alkalizing remedy, baking soda in water, and raw apple cider vinegar with no improvement. At times it felt like a small stone may have moved.

Fresh raw purple cabbage (with fresh lemon juice and miso dressing) eliminated the discomfort the same day I ate it. About two cups of cabbage. It also increased urine output.

Can someone answer me, how do you take hydrogen peroxide already diluted to 3%.?In Italy you cannot buy the 35% solution!What would be the protocol for candida using 3% hydrogen peroxide .. How much distilled water should be diluted?I did the borax protocol for a month, and it really helped, but now I see, a little perianal egzema is back. Certainly not with the same strength!I think, hydrogen peroxide could make a difference!Thanks in advance! This site is saving me!!!

Thanks for existing!!

Syd,

I forgot to mention that the dose of amla that my friend used will likely deliver less than 20 mg of vitamin C per day.

Syd,

Amla has many active components that have individually proven their worth in terms of overall health improvement and this is the reason I mentioned it to my friend first before the other 4 supplements as I wanted to also try and get her off of her medications and also just in case her meds were contributing to her memory issues.

Amla is essentially in a class by itself and I am not aware of another supplement that has as many positive health effects as amla. Here is a quote from an article on amla that I will link to below.

..................................

' The fruit is rich in quercetin, phyllaemblic compounds, gallic acid, tannins, flavonoids, pectin and vitamin C and also contains various polyphenolic compounds. A wide range of phytochemical components including terpenoids, alkaloids, flavonoids, and tannins have been shown to possess' useful biological activities. Many pharmacological studies have demonstrated the ability of the fruit to show antioxidant, anticarcinogenic, antitumour, antigenotoxic, antiinflammatory activities, supporting its traditional uses. In this review, we have focused our interest on phytochemistry, traditional uses, cancer chemopreventive activity of Phyllanthus emblica both in vivo and in vitro. In view of its reported pharmacological properties and relative safety, P. emblica could be a source of therapeutically useful products. '

.............................................

As you can see from that quote, amla is loaded with health beneficial components of which vitamin C is one.

https://pdfs.semanticscholar.org/8491/6ffd45e77dc33c267f4665b0a55dad8b4650.pdf

Amla is noted as having a relatively high vitamin c content, but amla is also noted as a home remedy for UTIs and bladder infections. Vitamin C has been reported to trigger cystitis in some people, but this is normally vitamin c supplements and not so much from plant based sources. Have you found this to be true for you? If so, then maybe it will be worth trying amla. If not, then you will either need to select a replacement for amla or deal with the cystitis issue if it arises.

If you decide on an alternative to amla, obviously you will not get the other health benefits that amla is likely to provide, but if memory improvement is your main objective I can suggest another proven option that has shown benefit on its own. To give you a good idea of what it can do by itself, I will link you to an article that discusses this option, but if you are not interested in that option, let me know and I can give you another!

https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2016/11/161110162840.htm

Compared to other probiotic studies, what is unique about this one is the very high dosing of four very common bacteria that showed improvement in just 12 weeks! This study makes you wonder what would have happened had they gone 24 weeks instead of 12 weeks? Would the improvements have continued to increase or would they stay the same? What if they had doubled the dose? In any case this is a viable alternative to amla that is likely to offer other health benefits aside from improving your memory!

2 Years of Smelly Hair Syndrome Cured With Penicillin for COVID Symptoms

I had a big issue with smelly hair syndrome for almost 2 years. It was a nightmare and I tried absolutely everything, from natural remedies to medicated shampoo from the doctor. Nothing worked in the slightest.

Then I was given strong penicillin antibiotics a couple of months ago for something else (swollen fingers from coronavirus! ) and it has totally cured the smelly hair issue! I am so massively relieved.

Castor oil for Painful Varicose Veins

I ate too much chocolate and took iron supplements (perhaps four over five or six days) and developed very painful varicose veins all over my body. Taking castor oil remedied the pain quickly and I could feel increased circulation in my legs. But then I drank a glass of cilantro juice (about four bunches worth). The pain returned with vengence.

I tried with moderate success: Butcher's broom, red vine leaf extact, grape seed extract, raw eggs, iodine, cabbage and fennel, oxygenated magnesium, cayenne tea.

Castor oil taken internally had the greatest effect on the pain up to complete relief (still waiting to see if the pain returns). Applied topically (in addition to the above herbs) the new blue veins seem unaffected, though smaller much older veins are definitely shrinking. Applied to the abdomen castor oil caused a sort of catharsis that brought additional comfort.

Oil pulling with it brought very quick relief of the pain which had been ongoing for days (i had been avoiding taking it internally because it caused nausea).

This has been ongoing for a week or so. I plan to oil pull with the castor oil daily as needed. I do swallow it, but the pain relief occurs simply by swishing it. Within minutes. Just cheap W-Mart colon cleanse castor oil.

Nattokinase, Serrapeptase, Lumbrokinase + for Blood Clot Below Knee

Hello,

I just wanted to share some info on some amazing stuff, maybe you guys know all about it, Nattokinase, Serrapeptase and Lumbrokinase. I was diagnosed with a DVT (blood clot) in my lower right leg, below the knee (serious but not as dangerous as above the knee)...My Docs all ranted about me refusing to take injections of Heparin then go onto Eliquis or Warfarin.I chose instead to treat this with Nattokinase, Serrapeptase and some supplements... DMSO topically 2X/day on leg... with Mag oil.

Will be adding or cycling the Lumbrokinase (Boluoke) starting today.

I have seen amazing progress in this one week, in the swelling, redness and pain, knock on wood! Elaquis and Warfarin do NOTHING to dissolve clots, they just keep them from growing... most times. With all sorts of side effects and risks of major bleeds.

Here is some interesting info if anyone wants to check it out:

Thanks for this great post, Art! I am experiencing the very thing your friend was, and also finding myself getting a bit confused. (I'm only 58.)

QUESTION: I'm wondering what constituent in the Amla berry you think makes it so helpful? Does it have polyphenols in it? (I have an oxalate issue and if I take things that are too high in Vit C., I get cystitis. Trying to find a work around if possible, like taking something else that is similar or finding a way to tolerate the amla.)

I was using this on those annoying wrinkles you can get between your eyebrows. They seem to be fading fine. I tend to put it on before bed and stuff like that. As I say not 100% gone yet but faded tons and they'll definitely be gone soon I reckon.

I've only been doing this... a month or so, I think.

Apple Cider Vinegar seems to work great for stinging nettle stings yeah. Just rubbed some fairly cheap ACV with the Mother on my legs where the stings were and they stopped hurting instantly.

Nice!
