Milk as a Source of Calcium

emmanuel (montpellier) on 09/28/2022

Hi

on https://www.earthclinic.com/cures/arthritis.html?jr=on#posts-top it's written that calcium can be got from milk and dairy but that's not how it works:

https://www.hsph.harvard.edu/nutritionsource/what-should-you-eat/calcium-and-milk/

Finland country is the world's top milk drinker but it also has the top broken bones, same for Sweden :

https://www.insidermonkey.com/blog/11-countries-with-the-highest-rates-of-osteoporosis-in-the-world-359037/?singlepage=1

And you'll see that each of the country in the list is heavily involved in using milk: France for example, UK, US. The osteoporosis comes from milk -> https://saveourbones.com/osteoporosis-milk-myth/

We are the only specy to drink the milk of another specy and thus even after being weaned!!! Cow's milk is perfect for growing calves fast, not for human beings. When will cows will milk artificially made pregnant human women to nourrish their calves?

Milk is popular because it serves huge economical interests:

Vinegar Relieves Swollen Joints

BackToNature (Brownville Me) on 08/01/2022

Vinegar definitely has miraculous properties and could easily put aspirin/tylenol out of business.

Using a mix of 2/3 +/- plus 1/3 water in a spray bottle to relieve an itchy rash (and also a fever) decided to spray sore ankles/ feet. In minutes, my ankles snapped (normal for me except when swollen), relieving the pressure. Applied to my hands, my knuckles enjoyed the same fast relief.

Spritzing water alone never provided this kind of relief, so I'm holding vinegar accountable.

MMS/CDS for Arthritis

Robert S. (USA) on 06/23/2022
5 out of 5 stars

I have arthritis in several places, both knees, back, neck with chronic pain. I found out about MMS / CDS water and tried it, and it lowered the pain better than anything else I have used. The best site for its use is

https://andreaskalcker.com/en/

Never mind what negative press he gets, it is just the usual medical Mafia hit pieces **clinical studies are documented on his site & standard treatment in certain countries in South America**.

You make CDS water the easy way using just a plastic sandwich bag and a glass jar & a cup warmer to speed it up to 12 - 24 hours instead of 48 hrs. Measure the amount of MMS you need per the amount of CDS you are making, put it in the sandwich bag, make sure it is sealed tight so no leakage, put it in the glass jar filled with distilled & filtered water being careful not to break the bag *squeeze out all the air first* if using a cup heater check every so often so it does not get too hot and melt the bag usually about 8-12 hours if it gets too hot turn it off until it cools a bit then turn it on again until done. If you put room temp water, you can time it, so you can do it at bedtime and adjust in the daytime. If you have a small heating pad, you can use it, but remember to put something under the jar between it and any heater to prevent cracking. Also place in an enclosure to keep the heat in, I use a small cardboard box, no fuss no muss, plain and simple & it works.

Any type of heater will do & can get to 100-130-F but not melt the bag. You either have to buy the MMS solution or make it yourself & both are possible.

The dosage I use is straight out of the jar, about 1/2 tsp 1x daily in the morning on an empty stomach. I have just started to use it intranasal using just a 1oz spray bottle. I mix 1/2 oz CDS with 1/2 oz water > saline I think would be better. Likewise, I use it several times daily and no ill effects, no burning, but it does make your nose run until it clears it out of whatever is in it. Gets into the body easily due to the nose being filled with blood vessels and bypassing the GI tract.

White Vinegar Helping Arthritis in Hand

Rose (MD) on 04/19/2022

For arthritic fingers and joints

I got a mini plastic spray bottle and began spraying, and massaging with plain white vinegar 2 days ago. Within 2 days I began to be able to start cracking them and 2 that were sitting up seemed a bit better. However what was most remarkable, was 1 of them when I tried to bend sounded like crackling calcification. I kept doing it because I couldn?t believe it. I continued hearing it. It?s swollen however it?s trying to sit back down. It?s the middle finger and baby finger.

MSM for Arthritic Hands

RM (Montana) on 12/24/2021

I'm a 50 year old male. Just started having stiffness in my hands about a month ago. Started taking 1 teaspoon of MSM dissolved in water first thing in the morning. Hands are fine within 1/2 hour and can work all day. It will return later in the evening so you may need a second treatment later in the day.

Borax for Arthritis

Kimberly (New Braunfels, TX) on 10/14/2021
4 out of 5 stars

Have been struggling with shoulder pain for a year. Sometimes one, sometimes the other and sometimes both. It would often wake me up and greatly reduced range of motion. This seems hard to believe, but it must be the borax because I haven't done anything else differently, but after only 3 or 4 days, there is no more pain in either shoulder! They feel completely normal. I've been taking between 1/8 and 1/4 teaspoon in a liter of water and I drink roughly a cup of it 4 times throughout the day. I will do this daily for 10 days, then I'm going down to 5 days a week. I still have stiffness in my hands and feet upon waking up which hasn't changed much, but it's nothing compared to the pain I had from my shoulders. I'm going to continue taking it for a few months to see how much better I can get my hands and feet to feel.

Borax for Arthritis

Sue (IL) on 10/13/2021

I started using Borax the powder about 2 months ago. I have been dealing with arthritis in my knees, pain in my ankles, and I had one hip replaced. I used the one teaspoon dissolved in about a liter of water and I was initially taking two tablespoons once in the morning. In two days, the pain in my lower body disappeared. I kept waiting for it to return, thinking this is too good to be true. It has not returned and I'm walking like I did 20 years ago! I love Borax! After about a month I reduced to two teaspoons a day. I call it my magic potion!

Flax Oil and Cottage Cheese for Arthritis

Gracie (Nottingham) on 07/28/2021
5 out of 5 stars

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.

High Dose Niacinamide for Arthritis

Paracelsus (Orlando, FL) on 06/11/2021
5 out of 5 stars

I have used Niacinamide (or Niacin) effectively for arthritis pain. When doing so, I usually take 1500mg either 1x or 2x per day for about a week. Then I cut back.

I doubt the 35mg Grace1 mentioned in her 2017 post (posted below) does anything at all. That is far too little. In order for a vitamin (niacin is vitamin b3) to act as a drug, the dosage has to be far greater than what we normally take. I highly recommend all forms of niacin, especially niacinamide, since that does not cause a flush.

Grace1 (Pdx) on 05/05/2017:

"Some doctors in Montreal found Niacinamide to be a potent fungal and aspergilla's killer. It basically kills Candida infections/pathogenic fungi. This of course is something genuis Ted already knew. Niacinamide is especially effective against candida. The human equivalent dose was 35 mg and it was only administered only once. A second dose of Niacinamide was given 8 hours later. However, even a single dose was effective. While this dose is on the high end for niacinamide, for most people it would still fall under 3g, which is what mainstream medicine officially considers the upper safety limit for niacinamide. Niacinamide can cure Candida infection with a single dose. I think taking caprylic acid a before to first dissolve biofilm and then take Niacinamide and I also took two a dissolved aspirin in a glass of water and took it with the niacinamide this was a strongly effective way to go after it. Of course the obvious stuff which is be on the anti-fungal diet, helps and expect a die off so do gentle detoxification to assist the body in the process of clearing and healing." https://www.earthclinic.com/cures/candida13.html#niacinamide_185779

Oddly Enough, Bee Stings Stopped Arthritis Pain!

Two wasps got into my bathroom and stung me. This was painful and long-lasting, but I am a stoic and did nothing. Then I discovered that my arthritis had ceased to pain me. I've since heard from old-timers that "everybody knows bee stings are good for arthritis." If anybody had told me that I wouldn't have believed it, but boy, is it TRUE!

Apple Cider Vinegar for Stiff Joints

Erin (Calgary) on 05/15/2021
5 out of 5 stars

I've taken Apple Cider Vinegar for 30 years. Took a break for 2 or three years, I just always felt amazing. Lately, I've been super stiff. Joints, body, etc. Groaning when getting up, all that stuff. I started using Apple Cider Vinegar on my fish sticks and fries (I like salt and vinegar on fish and chips). I use like 6 or 7 cap fulls at a time on it. A couple capfuls per stick. Of course, after like 3 days of doing that, I'm magically, completely NOT stiff anymore.

I don't like drinking it in water, but I will. I prefer to just put it in a shot glass and shoot it if it's not on fish or french fries. ACV doesn't care if it's mixed with food. It's not picky. But wow, does it work.

High Dose Magnesium and Vitamin C for Arthritis

Stefan (Polska) on 04/11/2021
5 out of 5 stars

[Google translate from Polish - not great, apologies to the author of this post!]

Once I read an article about [parrot beaks] from a priest who had healed with magnesium and I thought to myself that I had nothing to lose because I had a problem with my back and hip, which 10 years ago was dying, he said that it would need to be replaced soon. I started drinking 2.6 grams of magnesium chloride in divided doses during the day with Vit.C. I took 1,000,000 mg. i.e. 1 kg. and the same amount of vit C. It's hard for me to say now how much time it took, but I won't go to a doctor for advice on joints and spine, because I normally don't limp. I would like to point out that I have a lot of traffic on the plot and during renovation. If someone does not work physically, he should exercise a lot. Now, when I overwork a bit, I lubricate the sore spots with DMSO and after the pain.

Peanut Oil for Arthritis and RA

Peanut Oil for Arthritis and RA

My Grandmother, who lived to 92 years old, swore that the reason she didn't have arthritic problems was due to peanut oil massage. Most of these old time methods of healing are much better than our modern day medications and have no dangerous side effects. The pharmaceutical companies will never admit this however as there is no profit to be made.

Peanut Oil in the Cayce Readings. The primary use of peanut oil in the Cayce readings was as a massage oil ingredient. It was described as a "food for the nerves AND muscular forces" and a specific preventive measure against arthritis.

- Use peanut with olive oil (I add castor oil also) as a massage oil and rub into the affected area daily, the excess oil can be wiped off with a tissue before dressing. Edgar Cayce readings included oil of peanut blended with olive and pine oil for treatment of arthritis.

Source: https://cayce.com/health-information/edgar-cayce-peanut-oil-and-arthritis/

George Washington Carver (GWC) Rubbing Oil was created between the years of 1900 and 1910 by Dr. George Washington Carver, the famous agricultural scientist who invented over 300 products from peanuts. Yes, the same man that invented peanut butter. GWC Peanut Rubbing Oil is known for maximum penetration to relieve stiffness in joints, joint-friction from bones rubbing together, tight and sore muscles, and restricted range of movement. The main ingredient is peanut oil.

Ringmaster Pain Relief Rubbing Oil invented around 1950 Pain Relief formula contains 60% peanut oil.

Boron, DMSO for Arthritis in the Back and Neck

Bob. S. (USA) on 11/21/2020
5 out of 5 stars

I have arthritis in the back & neck real bad along with herniated discs, but what I found is that capsules of boron a supplement, taking a loading dose at first 4-5 time usual dose for 4-7 days, combined with DMSO applied topically, takes away the pain far more than the pain killer and muscle relaxant I was prescribed. I also had an epidermal to try to calm the pain, and it worked OK, but the pain just keeps coming back, normal with an epidermal, it is not permanent.

It also took away the severe headaches I started to get after the epidermal, another common side effect.

Again the DMSO and boron work better than the scripts. You can add anything else you like, including turmeric, which also helps quite a bit but don`t count on the recommended dose. You might have to up the amount according to your own needs, but all I can say is it works for me and better than any script I have been given.

Raisins Soaked in Gin for Arthritis

Michael (New Zealand) on 08/26/2020

Hi there again!

Plenty of recent postings on this Site extolling the virtues of Golden Raisins for Arthritis, so that's really interesting. Many of us Oldies have at least one or more creaking joints etc.!

Luckily, I have perloined the remaining dregs of a family member's London, Dry Gin bottle, carefully hidden away in the pantry. They won't miss it. Does the concoction need to be kept for two weeks in the Fridge?

In the quest to source a small supply of these G.R. at the Bottom of the World (ex. California usually), I stumbled on the following site that makes some pretty strong claims for the health benefits of G.R. WOW!!

Worth checking out - tooth enamel and cavities etc but "Wait there is more" ...the list goes on. One would be wise to check this site out I reckon and see what you think??!!

I know it is silly, but raisins are the one thing I just cannot abide. My jaw just about locks when I try to chew them. I would love to try this but I dread eating the raisins. Any ideas?

Raisins Soaked in Gin for Arthritis

Mama To Many (Tn) on 08/20/2020

Deirdre,

You asked if we have tried the Gin soaked raisins remedy for arthritis. I have not, but back in the 90's my parents used this remedy! They must have seen it on a talk show and thought, "Why not?" They were very faithful with the remedy for quite some time and did find it to be helpful.

At the time, I thought it seemed pretty hokey. But really, it is a raisin tincture. I use tinctures with different plant products all of the time and I use them because they work. The gin is the menstruum and the raisin is the fruit of the plant. I have made an elderberry tincture before. With the elderberry fruit in vodka. I have put chaste berries into vodka to make a tincture. Why not raisins in gin?

Thanks for reminding us of this folk remedy!

Love,

~Mama to Many~

EC: Thank you so much, MtM!!

Arthritis has been discovered in one of my knees. The thing that has helped A LOT is golden raisins, soaked in Gin... Take the entire package of raisins, and soak them for a week in gin. Do not use the cheapest you can buy, nor the most expensive. This must soak for at least 7 days. Then you can begin to take them. You need only take 9 raisins per day. You can divide them 3-3-3, morning, mid-day and evening if you like, or take 10 and do 5 in the morning and 5 at night.

It took about a week before I noticed anything, but wow did I notice a difference. I also take Bio-Flex, but when I slack off on the raisins/gin, I can tell the difference. Please give this a try. I make a second jar so I always have one waiting to be used. Good luck!!
