ADHD and the FAST

Charity (faithville, Us) on 01/28/2022
5 out of 5 stars

I have struggled with many things, and one is focus and habits. We fall into habits and then realize WE NEED TO CHANGE. I find that when I set a line in the sand, like I will do this fast and commit to it to change my routine, whatever that may be. A fast could be to add something or take something away, it is to make a change. Basically, it is your mind telling your body that, you're in control. I can say I hate diets and refuse to do one but I am willing to commit to changes. Today I am beginning a fast to limit my media so I can focus on upcoming spring and cleaning up and out the areas of my life not serving me well.

You will rule your body, or it will rule you because as you feed it, it develops appetites and addiction to brain chemicals that get released by certain habits.

A fast helps you decide to make changes and the more you shift things around the more control you have over your life. My fast is to stop my internet posts for two weeks and writing it here will, so to speak, put the gun to my head with some shame behind it to force my flesh to comply. See you again when I have instituted some new habits. Blessings, Charity

Internet is such a distraction from to do lists and then those things pile up as we are avoiding discomfort of facing them and that may include time to plan healthy food or sorting a cupboard or pulling weeds popping up before spring hits full force..

Oil Pulling and Mercury Fillings

Martha (OH) on 01/28/2022

Oil pulling with amalgams.

I have been researching tooth issues for awhile, and have seen cautions for oil pulling if you have amalgam fillings. This makes sense to me as mercury vaporizes in the mouth via chewing and even microcurrents across metal surfaces reacting to each other. So oil pulling could potentially erode mercury/amalgams faster.

Slippery Elm for Constipation and Bowel Problems

Michael (New Zealand) on 01/28/2022
5 out of 5 stars

Hello there!

A good friend of mine has had bowel problems and constipation for years and has tried "everything" with limited success - 'tis an on-going malady to be sure and causes a Tonne of grief and tearing of hair and gnashing of teeth.

One thing she never seems to take on board though, is the crucial need to drink more water than she does (especially in the summer) no matter how many times I suggest it to her. Stubborn? You could say that! Some people are just plain difficult to help.

However, after having played around with Slippery Elm for ages and ages (with moderate improvement) she made the simple switch to taking it last thing at night and it has made a profound difference to her "movements" the following morning. Follow the packet directions. Ensure you only use quality products.,

As you surely know by now, I am always searching for simple and sustainable solutions to the health problems life throws at us. Often times, folks prefer the complicated and expensive ones, thinking they must be more effective. I am a fully paid up member of the KISS Society.

Cheers from Down Under.

Re: Does NAC Cause Hypertension in the Lungs?

Art (California) on 01/28/2022

Hi Lori,

I think this is referencing a 2007 study in mice.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/labs/pmc/articles/PMC1952618/

Since that study, rat studies have shown benefit for pulmonary hypertension with the use of NAC.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/labs/pmc/articles/PMC5996671/

As for humans, there are no long term studies that replicate the mice study, that I could find. Considering the number of people who use NAC regularly as part of their supplement regimens over the long term for health issues such as COPD, Cystic Fibrosis or chronic bronchitis, if pulmonary hypertension was an issue with long term use of NAC, it seems that it would have been exposed a long time ago. The following human study does not show that NAC causes pulmonary hypertension in Cystic Fibrosis patients with longer term use.

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1569199314002082

On the other hand, the following article suggests that NAC may be of benefit in people who have pulmonary hypertension:

https://pulmonaryhypertensionnews.com/2014/06/20/nutritional-supplement-nac-studied-ph-treatment/

If you are not comfortable with using NAC, there are alternatives such as Alpha Lipoic Acid or Melatonin which both have very good safety profiles, as does NAC.

Re: Tegretol and Break Through Seizures

Ted's Remedies, Natural Treatment for Epilepsy (earthclinic.com)

my friend I met at church, had a daughter with epilepsy and went on the keto plan because no meds helped her. She had to wear a helmet and play only with soft toys to prevent injury. Her brain outgrew them, and she is a brilliant adult now with no epilepsy. Coconut oil can help with brain and soy lecithin granules and magtein . L taurine may be helpful too. Some people have a spiritual aspect to their epilepsy and some healers get results freeing them of it. I love to google stuff and go research. I had 150 stitches on my head as a four-year-old and was supposed to die of a stroke but I'm old now and plan to get a lot older. I battled ADHD and dyslexia. Our gut has a brain too and affects our systems.

Re: Need Help for PMS and Hormonal Imbalance - 26 Years Old

Connie (Utah) on 01/28/2022

I haven't had this group of signs, but it looks like PCOS, possibly.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/labs/pmc/articles/PMC8451069/

"Cutaneous changes are one of the earliest manifestations of PCOS, which include acne, hirsutism, androgenetic alopecia (AGA), stria, acanthosis nigricans (AN) and skin tags. As part of a multidisciplinary approach to these patients, dermatologists also play a major role in its management. "

Re: 10 Years of Lax Lower Esophageal Sphincter (LES) and GERD

Rob (Hereford, UK) on 01/28/2022

I was diagnosed with a 4cm hiatus hernia 10 years ago. I managed GERD symptoms as follows:

1. Low protein diet, most acid is produced when protein enters the stomach.

2. Low 'stodgy' carb diet. Limit bread, pastry, potato, pasta, rice etc as best you can. A high volume of undigested food in the abdomen creates upward pressure on the diaphragm forcing the LES muscle open.

It's that simple.

These tips are also useful if you can't keep strictly to the first two:

3. Don't eat less than 3 hours before you go to bed. When you lie down you don't have gravity helping you keep the reflux under control.

4. If you take PPIs take them 2 hours before you go to bed. This way you get protection when you are lying down. There is nothing wrong with taking PPIs as a short term solution to get your oesophagus healed up or to overcome the effects of too big a meal once in a while.

6 years later I was not having heartburn but still had silent reflux symptoms (lump in the throat, burning tongue, etc) this is caused by the stomach enzyme pepsin being refluxed as a vapour. I got manometry, further endoscopy, and a barium swallow x-ray done because I was going to get surgery. The hiatus hernia had gone though. By asking questions on Facebook pages for the surgical procedure I found that this didn't stop the silent reflux symptoms so I didn't go ahead with it. Instead eventually cut bread etc almost completely and the silent reflux stopped too

Re: B-Complex Side Effects

Charity (faithville, Us) on 01/27/2022

My spouse eats a lot of nutritional yeast to flavor his food in place of salt and many families eat certain meals more than others. It is always possible to get too much of something if you are unaware, it is already in your diet. Like fortified cereals and breads. I take some B's daily and others as I feel led. Sometimes I skip everything and then slowly add stuff back into my diet. P5P is a safer form of higher dose use of B-6. B complex is lacking many things, high in some and low in others, read the label. If your gut is healthy, it will make b vitamins and if it is really bad it might not absorb your b supplements. Too much B will increase your appetite.

Re: Need Help for PMS and Hormonal Imbalance - 26 Years Old

Charity (faithville, Us) on 01/27/2022

Start basic with soy lecithin granules (detox fats out of organs and feed brain with choline and inositol) 1 tsp by spoon in morning or bedtime with cup of water: leave water out for 1 hr to let the chlorine dissipate and put one drop of Lugol's iodine on skin. Take L- taurine and lysine together ( to remove MSG and fight virus). Drink 1 tsp apple cider vinegar in water before breakfast. Vitamin D-3 with K-2 and magnesium citrate. After two weeks of this get back to us about how you are doing. Blessings, Charity

Does NAC Cause Hypertension in the Lungs?

Lori (Queens ) on 01/27/2022

Hi Art and Mama to Many?

I read that NAC is good for controlling high blood pressure and was quite excited to try after reading some reviews however, I stopped in my tracks with one review that mentioned that NAC causes hypertension in the lungs after prolonged use.

Your take on this is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

Re: My Vitamin B12 Is Too High - What Can Bring It Down?

Idie (South Dakota) on 01/27/2022

Moringa is plant-based and therefore cannot be high in Vitamin B12. Vitamin B-12 is mainly obtained by eating meat/dairy products or supplementation. B12 is a water soluble vitamin and there are many people who supplement high amounts because of deficiency problems (I am one of those). If you were to check my blood serum levels they would likely be off the charts. A physician knowledgeable in this area would know that Vitamin B12 has an excellent safety record. The worry is if you are deficient or if you have a functional deficiency where B12 is not getting into the tissues.

I hope this helps with understanding B12 and how important it is to the body. There is tons of information about all of this across the internet. Are you having symptoms such as tingling, numbness, dizziness, fatigue, burning mouth, insomnia? If yes, you should have the more advanced B12 tests to determine if your tissues are getting enough as I mentioned in an earlier post. Best of luck to you. :)

Antifungal Cream for Ringworm Helping Shingles

Carrie (Oklahoma ) on 01/27/2022
5 out of 5 stars

Re: Antifungal Cream for Ringworm Helps Shingles

I thought I had ringworm when it first started on my back. I used a mixture of Tinactin and yeast infection cream to treat it. We raise sheep that give us some hard to cure ringworm, so I use two different meds to treat it. I then broke out in other places and realized it wasn't ringworm and I didn't hit the front with ringworm meds. The patch treated with ringworm early was huge, but it dried up faster and hurt very little but the other non treated patches have been very painful. Also, I ended up going back to the ringworm meds because it controls the pain better than any other patch, cream or soak I used. I use it on the back patch 2x a day since it doesn't hurt any more, but I apply it to the front as often as needed.

Re: Colloidal Silver

Art (California) on 01/27/2022

Katzie,

A TDS meter (aka PPM Reader) can not measure the true ppm of silver in a colloidal suspension. TDS stands for total dissolved solids. Here is a description of what that covers :

https://www.who.int/water_sanitation_health/dwq/chemicals/tds.pdf

The inventor of the SilverTron colloidal silver generator has written extensively about the use of a TDS meter for the purpose of determining how pure the water is that you start with when making colloidal silver and this is an important step in the process and he has also explained why a TDS meter will not work for the purpose of determining the parts per million of silver in a sample of colloidal silver. It is interesting reading and explains in simple terms why this is.

Here is a link to that article:
