I too have found a huge, albeit unexpected, improvement in my gut since taking borax powder (This didn't happen whenI was taking borax supplements in tablet form). Pretty much since the day I ran out of the tablets and used 'cleaning' borax (pure with no additives) I have noticed this effect. I told my mother about it as she too has had major gut issues that have caused her serious pain for over 20 years. She has been diagnosed with IBS and told basically that she has to live with it. She too has have next to no issues since taking borax powder (1 tsp dissolved in 1 l of water, then add 1 tsp of this liquid to a glass of water to drink every day, sometimes 2x a day.)
Abdominal Pain, Bloating
Prioris, Bill, Ted, and TimH..etc: Thank you all so much for your informative posts on borax. They have explained my mild die-off reaction (herxheimer effect) from using it. I shall cut back a bit on the intake and continue on.
For the record, my apparent die-off reaction consists only of morning diarrhea.
The apparent positive effects that I have noticed recently have been that my chronic abdominal bloating has all but completely disappeared (I've literally had that for decades). Along with the bloating, general abdominal pain and discomfort have also all but disappeared, which included daily, middle-of-the-night deep burning pain in my gut.
Please note, that along with starting the borax regime, I have also started the “water cure” (Google it), which involves properly hydrating your body. These two remedies have removed a dark cloud of dismal depression that many digestive-related issues have caused me for many years. It feels like I have a new life. Cheers and blessing to all!!
The borax mix treatment:
I had pain in my knees and fingers. I started using this mix and its only been one week and my knees don't ache going up the stairs. I will continue for a while longer. My daughter had a foul breath and the second day after taking the mix she has no bad breath.
Better But With Side Effects
I started taking borax 2 months ago. For arthritis in my knee which exploded skiing. I also developed the most painful disease known: CRPS. This was 2 1/2 years ago. At that time I also found out I had herpes. After taking borax for only 24 hours I was able to walk 3 miles. Herpes outbreaks stopped.
BIG problem is side effects. Gut side effects. I sure don't want to quit borax, but am concerned about the gut pain. Can anyone tell me what happens in the gut to cause this pain?
Borax for athletes foot:
After trying everything else you could buy at the store for his pretty much life long athletes foot problem - and not having results my boyfriend finally decided to try the remedy I kept telling him to try... borax - which he thought was poison him instantly but he 'trusted' the OTC stuff at the store!!! LOL
He wet his feet and then took a handful and rubbed it all over his feet.
He said they stopped itching immediately! He was stunned.
A few weeks later I asked him how his athletes foot was and he said: oh wow! It hasn't come back! That stuff totally cured it!!!
Now he tells all his friends about borax ;)
Ich hatte seit 2 Jahren Hashimodo zuletzt meinen verschwundenen Arzt. Er war Spezialist auf diesem Gebiet. Aber eine normale google.com-Suche mit Bor und meinem Hashimodo ist weg. Ich habe vom letzten August 2019 bis heute 1/4 Teespoon und 759 mg Magnezium genommen und meine 2 3cm Calcium Promts sind weg. Wow, ich werde es meinen Freunden sagen, aber sie sind so dumm und werden nicht gesund. Tschüss
The last time I had Hashimodo for two years was my missing doctor. He was a specialist in this field. But a normal google.com search with Bor and my Hashimodo is gone. I have taken 1/4 Teespoon and 759 mg Magnezium from last August 2019 until today and my 2 3cm Calcium. Promts are gone. Wow, I'll tell my friends, but they are so stupid and won't get well. Bye
EC: We think the poster means:
1/4 teaspoon borax solution in water, 759 mg of magnesium, and low dosage calcium supplements for Hashimoto's.
I took 1/8 tsp of Borax with a liter of mineral water 5 days a week for 5 months for help with my Sjogrens. After 5 months, I didn't notice any improvement at all. Could the problem be that I used mineral water?? I see you stated that it should be either distilled or clean water w/o minerals. I was going to start again (after resting a few months) but with 1/4 tsp this time. The Sjogrens has me down to about 94 pounds because it is going after my digestive system. I was up to 97 pounds before starting the Borax -- but went down to 94 after I was on it. Maybe because I wasn't eating nuts? Anyway, before I start again, I want to ask about the mineral water and if that could have been the reason I got no results after 5 months. Thank you.
I have scleroderma. My hands were sore, stiff and swelling. Getting digital ulcers every couple of mths. The borax protocol seem to help the symptoms plus was feeling better in general. I also take colloidal silver msm in green juice, water kefir, probiotics, colostrum plus some other supplements and essential oils. Autoimmune disease is epidemic and yet you hear very little about it. It effects each person individually. Drs just want to give us drugs to suppress the symptoms instead of attacking the root cause of the disease and seems like the research doesn't do anything to prevent the disease. It all starts with leaky gut syndrome. When we can't absorb essential nutrients then our bodies cannot fight off invaders or heal itself. Most AI patients are deficient in Vit. D3, boron and K2. If the body does not have theses essential components then you develop disease such as cancer or AI. They say 1 in 200 people have these diseases and most do not know it. So bringing awareness to people is critical to getting a cure and methods of prevention.
I find the Borax is effective. So when someone worries about the "safety" of the this I always tell them the drugs that are prescribed for my illness are far more "dangerous" than this. LOL.
I was experiencing a horrible auto immune condition called HS (Hidradenitis Supperativa). Very, very painful and debilitating. 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.

Autoimmune issues and Borax:
Has anyone here with autoimmune issues been on borax for a while, maybe 5 years or more? What have your LONG TERM results been?
We've been using 1/3 cup of Borax in a large hair conditioner bottle--filled up the rest of the way with water. It's easy to use in the shower because it has a pump. My sweetheart has a bald spot that's been bugging him and 10 days ago he decided he would start using the Borax for shampoo and Apple Cider Vinegar (diluted) for a hair rinse.
Today he trimmed his hair and we noticed ALOT of hair on his bald spot. I haven't been checking it because I didn't want to jinx anything or bring attention to him using an "alternative" remedy.
It is really working!! Thank you ever so much for this site. I refer to it often.

Can you use bottled spring water instead of purified for the borax drink?
Based on recommendations I found on the site, yesterday I tried Borax to help relieve my candida issue. I have had long standing bloating caused by the candida. Just to start off, I took a very small amount (maybe 1/20 teaspoon) of 20-mule team borax in 0.75L water, and drank it throughout the day. By about 4pm, I started having A LOT of flatulence that lasted several hours. Didn't smell bad luckily, but had to go home after work and stay there for a while :)
By the end of the evening, my belly felt empty, with none of the pressure or pain that I have come to live with. Unbelievable! I plan on continuing to use borax for my issues. I will work up gently to about 1/8 or 1/4 teaspoon 4 days a week, for a limit time frame. Anyone interested in trying borax, I recommend it, but please read the borax information on this site, and work up the dosage very gently, it is powerful. Thanks Earth Clinic!!
Bill, what are the effects of borax water on the good bacteria in the gut?
