B12 Cured Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS)
Bee (Tampa, FL) on 01/18/2022
So I started with taking a B complex supplement that contained about 100 mcg of B12, every other day (making sure to take only supplements with limited amounts of "extra" ingredients). I saw some improvements in my overall autoimmune symptoms. But when I went to get my B12 levels checked with my doctor, they were found to still be in the 400s range, which is not optimal at all. He recommended I take a higher B12 dose.
So I purchased a B12 supplement that contained 2,000 mcg per capsule. I began take 3 capsules per week (one on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays). I continued with my regular B complex on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. A couple weeks after beginning this regimen with the added higher B12, I noticed I was no longer breaking out at all. I tested this by going for Mexican food and had enchiladas drenched with tomato sauce. No reaction. A few days later I ate mashed potatoes. Again no reaction. Since then I have eaten nightshades so many times with no reaction! The HS was gone!
I decided to stop the B12 for a week to see what would happen when I ate nightshades. The breakouts returned. I started the B12 again, and my skin cleared pretty quickly. I googled to see if there was a connection between B12 and HS and I did find one small study where someone's HS was cleared with higher doses of B12.
Anyway, I wanted to share this to hopefully help someone. Raise your B12 levels and other vitamins and minerals to optimal levels and you will see a marked improvement in your symptoms.
Borax for HS
Kristina (Arizona) on 03/15/2016
I decided to try the borax protocol to attack the autoimmune condition. In six weeks all symptoms of my condition had disappeared and it is 10 months later and I continue to be healed. I now drink borax water once or twice a week. I drink 1/4 tsp in the liter of distilled water once or twice a week. I give 1/4 of the above mentioned dilution to both my children once or twice a week. My Mom has been drinking it daily for 9 months (after seeing my amazing results) due to a number of health afflictions, and has skin growing on her legs where she has had open wounds for 30 years from a recluse spider bite. My coworker drinks the above mentioned dilution daily and has had a significant reduction in her rheumatoid arthritis pain. In fact over the winter she was shocked to 'notice' she was barely hurting in her hands at all... I was desperate for answers when I tried this and I'm so glad I did.
Decide for yourself, trust your instincts. Good luck.
Turmeric Mask for Hidradenitis Suppurativa
Ar (Philadelphia, Pa) on 05/10/2016
The mask consists of:
These are just guidelines and the amounts can be adjusted as you see fit, and flour may be substituted for yogurt. My HS hadn't been as bad lately and I only had 3 lesions that were about a dime size each that seemed to be connected.
I decided to apply the mask to my bikini area to try and lighten the darkness of the scarring I had obtained over the years from HS (I had an upcoming vacation). I left the mask on for an hour and then washed it off in the shower. I noticed that the lesions were not as irritated and painful. I left the area open over night and the next day when I got in the shower the lesions began to drain and were half the size! I let them air dry again and repeated the process later that day (this WILL sting for a bit on the open lesion, but I have a high tolerance and wanted to test it again so I didn't mind).
I let it air dry again overnight and the next day they were completely flat and the skin started to heal. I repeated the masks daily for a week and the skin healed up quite beautifully and the scarring didn't seem as bad.
I'm not sure if you will have the same results as I did, but it is worth a try if you are in pain or the lesions are quite large.
