Borax Shampoo

I've been using Borax the following way since the late 90's and love it!

1/2 cup Borax in 1 gallon hot water and shake well.

Separate part of this into a bottle applicator and add whatever small amount of Castile liquid desired for shampooing. Wash twice, rinse twice with water, then thoroughly with 1 tsp citric acid in 1 quart of water. After that do a final rinse with just water. NO TANGLES EVER...only soft manageable hair!

Autoimmune Disease
Posted by Sam (Scandinavia) on 08/18/2021

Linda, you are absolutely on the spot. It's all caused by parasites of different forms, some are microscopically small and some can be seen with eyes. These parasites are eating us alive from inside and outside and they eat the food and nutrients that we need to heal, recover and grow. People like joe Joe Tippens have cured their cancer, by using dog dewormer (Fenbendazole), and Doctors like Tullio Simoncini cure cancer by using Sodium Bicarbonate (baking soda) and tell us that cancer is caused by a pathogen (specifically fungi). Then we have people like Andreas Kalckers and Jim Humble who cure autism, cancer, arthritis, and more, by using disinfectants known as Chlorine Dioxide which is used in European Union to treat ALS

( and (,

but health Canada and CDC say it's toxic and can kill you :D. These guys Jim, Andreas, Dr. Simoncini, and more, tell you that these diseases are caused by parasites in the stomach and body tissue and these diseases are curable by using dewormers and other disinfecting agents. Borax is a pesticide, herbicide, insecticide, antifungal, and antimicrobial agent. It's not the mineral boron that heals people, it's the anti-parasitic effects of borax that kills the parasites and allows the body to heal itself. Tooth decay is caused by black mold and gargling with a solution of borax will remove all the infection from gum tissue and teeth and allows the body to regenerate tooth and gum tissue.

Yes, I know doctors tell us it's not possible, but I guess you know what I think about medical doctors already ;)

Joint Pain
Posted by Dot (Bon Aqua, FL) on 08/11/2021

The weird feeling sounds similar to restless leg syndrome. This can be caused by fluoride. Borax detoxes fluoride. Agree you could be detoxing too fast and need to reduce your dose of borax. Magnesium citrate is the best form of mag to take to avoid possible diarrhea. Helps calm muscle spasms or need to keep moving.

Use MSM lotion (biological sulphur) or get MSM powder and add it to your own lotion or cream.

Borax for Children
Posted by TBrook (Lincoln, Nebraska) on 07/12/2021

Hi I am new here and have a question. I am going to start borax for many reasons but I'm most interested in whether I can give to my children in small doses and how do I calculate how much? I want so badly for them to have good health after a year of bad health for me. I just don't want to harm them in the process of doing what I thought was best! What do you generally think about children and borax?

My condolences. I am a bit confused by the comment “this is the first testimony that borax cured cancer”. You just said the pastor died. I am assuming it's from his cancer returning. Was it something else?

EC: No idea, sorry.

Posted by Christi S. (Atlanta, Ga ) on 07/04/2021

I know it's been 6 years since you made this post. I believe that you could have had a detox response. It's hard to determine whether it's a detox response or an allergic reaction. Please update if you continued to use borax. If so, what results did you receive. Best wishes.

My fiancé and I both started taking 1 liter distilled water mixed with 1/4 tsp of Borax . We drink it over the course of 12 hours . I have done this for 5 days and took several days off and now I'm back on it. I FEEL GREAT! Much more alert, healthy bowel movements that seem to be dense and I feel crap leaving my body ~ literally ~ lol, optimistic energy and a up beat positive mood. The clarity of mind is what I'm really enjoying most.. I'm a fan. I also take Lugol's iodine a few drops a week and grey Celtic sea salt regularly. I was told the borax and grey Celtic sea salt help pull heavy metals out of the body. I avoid all gluten starch and sugar ~ so that is working for my wellness, and I use the iodine to also test a food if I'm unsure if it has starch in it. Toxemia is an excellent book to read - and that's all I'd like to add for right now. Thank you.

I've been taking a small amount of Borax on a regular basis since late 2012, after reading an article entitled "The Borax Conspiracy."

Within a week, the pain in my shoulder was gone.

My wife had a calcite spur in her foot. Very painful. I told her that the boron in the Borax would help her body regulate the calcium and the magnesium in her body and may make the spur go away.

It went away within a week.

Recently, my dentist checked my jaw bone to see if I had enough bone to install a dental implant (it's unusual for someone my age [65] to have enough bone to safely do an implant without extra preparation to the bone). He was surprised/shocked to find out that I have no bone loss at all. I told him it was because I "take boron supplements." (I didn't dare say that I take BORAX--he would have flipped! )

I put 1/4 teaspoon of Borax in a 2-liter bottle of water. Then I drink about 1/2 cup of Borax-water each day, for about 4 or 5 days per week.

The $5.60 box of Borax that I bought on 24-Dec-2012 is still mostly full. It will last until I am about 130 years old or more.

Bladder Cancer

I'm 62 years old and cancer free! Read it! I remember getting planters warts because of all the marching with the new Navy issue shoes in boot camp. The doctors would shave the wart down daily then put a piece of hard foam with a hole in center over the wart to force it out with each step and kept shaving it down until the root would separate from the rest of the skin then grabbed it with tweezers and pulled it out! I did it myself many times after that. I'm planters wart free for over 40 years.

I used borax to cure my cancer. I'm adding more information to this four months after I posted this.

Today is Jan 22,2018 and I want to add that the Doctors at the Veterans Hospital told my family If I didn't go through the entire procedure they recommended including scraping the tumors out of my bladder then after it healed to fill bladder and hold it in as long as I could or I'd die in 30 to 45 days.

Well after the doctors forced the large equipment (Video cameras needed to see what they were doing plus the scraping and burning equipment up my very small in diameter urinary track), they ripped it from tip of my male member all the way up to my bladder causing heavy bleeding which caused the catheter to get plugged up which caused a life threatening infection and tremendous pain. I begged doctors to cut my member off because it swelled to the size of a cucumber and was just as green. I told doctors I will not let their urinary doctors touch me again. Especially after the doctor pulled out the catheter from me as if he was trying to start a lawnmower that wouldn't start! I filed a report against him after I left the emergency room with Patient Advocate at the VA.

Well it's been just over 2 years since I was diagnosed with the cancer in 4 parts of my body and since I started treating my cancer with Borax. So I am living proof it works! The doctors did an ultrasound to locate the cancers they originally found on x-ray after I went to them because I saw blood in my urine. They wanted to find out if they could cut the cancers out. Well, they couldn't find any cancer! They wouldn't document when I told them of my curing it with Borax but they haven't done any more testing to try to locate it. I'm going to have my Primary care doctor put in an order for further tests to see if they can find any cancer in me. But they said I would be dead 30 to 45 days and it's 2 years now and I'm still here. I took a table spoon of Borax in a 2 liter plastic bottle from either Gatoraide or Poweraide. I drink it slowly over a few day period. I also recently found I've been getting erections for no reason throughout the day and night! (I'm celibate for many years I might add.) Which for me decreased with all the pain medications I was on. I haven't had this happen like this since grammar and High School!

EC: We just discovered this amazing comment on our borax video YouTube channel. It's from January 22, 2018. Someone recently replied that they discovered on Facebook that the pastor died last year (2020).  It is the first testimonial about borax successfully treating cancer that we've come across!

The pastor's original post is here if anyone wants to read the additional comments:

What if you reduce the days you take it like do it every second day?

Or perhaps try some other detox methods like parasite cleansing etc which can be done over shorter periods so that possibly you can go back to the Borax remedy later on.. You know your own body, so u have to educate yourself first before you decide what to do..

Posted by Tony (Paphos) on 06/11/2021


Is it possible that your pains are due to the detox effect?
And maybe you should reduce your intake of Borax to the smaller amounts?

Mimosa Pudica seed is very good at removing parasites from the intestinal tract. I would combine this with a clove, black walnut hull, and wormwood tincture. Take cascara sagrada if you experience any constipation. Take diatomaceous earth internally after meals. Take bentonite clay and activated charcoal away from other supplements to bind any toxins released from the parasites. It wouldn't hurt to also take a drug like fenbenzadole. Mimosa Pudica seed is key though. I would take these things for a few months.

Please help me I've got pinworms and the Drs don't help. Tonight I drank Celtic sea salt and a bunch came out. I think maybe tomorrow morning I'll take a pinch of Borax and 2 teaspoons of the sea salt drink this on an empty stomach. I've put diatomaceous earth in my underwear. I'm eating like a rabbit 🐰. Any other suggestions to purge this from my body please help I'm desperate I can't live like this.

You did not give it enough time ... continue internal 1/8 teaspoon borax dissolved in 2 cups of filtered water, drink 1/3 of it 3 times only per day ... for borax washing melt down your favorite face wash and add a 1/8 or 1/4 teaspoon and stir in and pour back into a mold and let cool ... wash with it daily ... you will see a bigger difference long term ...

Started using this mix for 2 doses. I dissolve everything in the flask first before pouring it into a large mixer bottle filled with clean filtered water or distilled.

I usually just put a few drops(2-4) of the nascent iodine into the mix. Amazing effects after first use. They are killing us with fluoride and it's in everything. Healing is absolutely possible.

Something I've discovered when using borax on your hair is that a handheld shower makes it a whole lot easier. Particularly if you work in your 1/4 tsp of citric acid in a pint of water and leave it in until you're done washing, then getting the handheld shower right up close to the scalp to rinse it all out. AWESOME!

Borax healed my frozen shoulder overnight.. I've been using it for about 3 years now.. it has straightened my hands and fingers.. my teeth have new enamel where my gums receded, and the neck of my teeth were exposed.. it has also straightened and removed my neck hump ..I am 73 and feel like I'm 37.. I love my Borax and Magnesium regime.. amazing Minerals!!

Better But With Side Effects

Hi all,

I'm implementing boron to heal from chronic candida. I started with Borax (made the solution of 1/8 teaspoon per liter of water). I got through a liter over the course of five days, could not take any more than that. Kidney pain, headache, nausea, diarrhea, depression but also improvement in candida condition.

I'd rather take Boron but the article I read by Walter Last is that he doesn't expect it works against Candida, as it's not in ionic form. Would taking an ionic form of Boron work??

Feeling thrilled and defeated... as I really want this to work and feel this is the answer. Does anybody have success with the Boron tablets, or ionic Boron?

Borax Baths

I read a lot. I have read that borax on hair can make it fall out. Too much in laundry eats holes in cotton. I read you can use it to get hair clogs out of drains. It affects hormones and I know some in earth clinic have put 1/2 cup in a bath but I can put a pinch in a foot soak and all hell break loose. One man's cure can be another man's poison. Study, remember it removes calcium out of soft tissue and chanca piedra (stonebreaker ) can be a good supplement to use with it. Be careful so you don't suffer while trying to get healed. Also, Boron is one mineral of many that needs to be kept in balance or your body will produce histamine to let you know there is an imbalance. Most illnesses can be relieved with water and an antihistamine but that is not solving the imbalance in mineral or hydration. Most hospitals' first line of treatment is a saline IV. Blessings, Charity

I have definitely noticed a weight reduction since using borax 5 days now. My diet has actually gotten more diverse. I was on gluten free paleo diet for health reasons. I felt sick so I couldn't exercise. I'm eating like a kid again so I know it's not my diet causing weight loss. Boron has my back. Thank God for this wonderful mineral to counter act the toxicity of this world.

Regarding how much borax to put in a bath:

One cup of borox should do nicely. It does clean very well and soaking your hair in it will leave it soft. I would highly recommend showering afterwards. It will leave you feeling rejuvenated and full of energy. Ahhh like brand new. I soak 10 to 15 minutes. Thank God for boron. God bless you.

This subject of boron and borax is very interesting. In regards to the lack of boron in foods you were asking about, I think it is due to not using our effluent in the soil and not burying the dead in the soil where we grow food. I have a friend who made a mix of his effluent (urine and stools), left it in the sun (covered) for 6 weeks then used it on his crops and miracles happened, that knocked everyone's socks off. We are missing out on all this and polluting our waters by dumping our effluent into the sea. We are supposed to be intelligent creatures but one would wonder sometimes. Cheers!

I had arthroscopic knee surgery in May 2020. Two months into recovery the entry area had not completely healed and a staph infection had formed. My surgeon, nor any other doctor caught this. I ended up at the emergency room and was diagnosed with cellulitis, which had spread to the other leg and had major swelling from both knees down to the tips of my toes. After three rounds of antibiotics, I had not responded and was getting worse. I then thought hospitalization would be necessary.

Then by chance, I watched a video on rumble, and Borax was mentioned as a therapy for overall health issues. I have been using 1/4 teaspoon in one liter of distilled water and drinking it throughout the day.

I'm on my 8th day and have been getting better more and more every day. The only side effect is a pressure headache behind my left eye, which is tolerable. Could this be due to the decalcification of my pineal gland? I have noticed my hair and skin looking better and my teeth are whitening as well. I'm a 57 year old male who is very positive for the future!

Borax Dosages

Just read a paper on millet and its use to cure among other things, type 2 diabetes. This is based on a hi fibre diet.

My situation is Multiple Myeloma and the osteoporosis side issue. I am eager to try the Borax remedy and take Mg supplement. I also realise that I do not need to take calcium. I am in the early stages of a hi fibre diet with no red meat or dairy products in keeping with some very recent research. I am in partial remission and my cancer markers are reducing with my bloods stable. I frequently meditate. Love and light to all.

I take boron a couple of times a week in a 0 capsule which is 3/4 full. Within just a few days my nails are long and strong. I also use it instead of K2 to keep calcium in check. Borax is amazing. Look at the NIH website for more information.

Hello, I'm going into my third week of drinking borax Ted's way. I am female but drinking the male amount of 1/4 tsp in a huge jar of water. My question is why the male and female dosage difference and should it be on an empty stomach? I try to get all my water in before noon and borax after noon 2 hrs after I've eaten. I struggle with weight, libido, and joint paint. Oh and yeast, lots of candida. Thank you for your time. My knees feel better after week 2!

Borax Dosages

You're confusing Borax and boron. Boron is the element that makes up a part of Borax-the-rock that is mined.. Borax contains lots of other elements, such as oxygen, etc. When they give the approximate weight of Borax, it's always going to be a lot higher than the boron in it, because of all the other elements in Borax adding to its weight.

The instructions read "take x amount of Borax dissolved in x amount of water. Then take a teaspoon (or whatever amount) of that water/Borax mix, and you'll end up having ingested 113 mg. or so of the BORON that's contained in the Borax. Reading a lot of these posts, know that you're not guaranteed an accurate amount with these tips. For some people, a few sprinkles a day mixed with your table salt works well. For others needing to know the precise amount of boron they're taking, might be better to get a boron supplement in capsule or tablet form.

Psoriatic Arthritis

I thought that since it has 6 years since I put that post up about borax and psoriatic arthritis (PA), it wouldn't hurt to give an update. I have remained in remission over the past 6 years and I had been in remission for many years prior to that post.

I was in a ton of pain all over as the original post explains and I have remained symptom free for well over 12 years at a cost of less than a penny a day using Borax. No apparent side effects that I have found through the many years of use. I'm still using Borax 4 to 5 days a week and remain pain free from PA.


Borax Contraindications

Hi Vickie, I recognised all your ailments are exactly as described in a video by "Fit Tube" I just watched about Ayurvedic remedies for thyroid issues, which I suspect I have recently started to experience in the early stages. My eyes are puffy, I get headaches - which is very unusual for me, I'm often overtired, my appetite is poor even when feeling hungry, I'm struggling with my weight - especially around the midriff, always constipated, itchy skin, thinning hair and feeling aches and pains most days. These symptoms gradually started to appear a few months ago. I'm hoping to nip it in the bud before needing any prescription medication.

The Ayurveda approach involves sticking to healthy foods & home cooked meals; regular activity (eg walking, swimming, rebounding) including 3 specific yoga breathing exercises (10-15 mins/daily); drinking water which has been used to soak a teaspoon of crushed coriander seeds overnight, then reduced by half on the stove before straining out the seeds and sipping once it's cooled down a bit. This must be taken first thing in the morning at least 30 minutes before any other food or drink. Finally, massaging the throat and neck with cold pressed walnut oil every evening. I am blessed that I am able to find both the oil and the seeds locally and they are very cheap. Others may need to explore local health food stores or search online via Amazon or eBay etc. Anyone on medication should discuss first with their healthcare provider, assuming they have the good fortune to find one who is sympathetic to natural treatment options.

This protocol must be followed for 3 months, so it's too early for me to report any benefits, but the coriander water most definitely improved my sluggish digestion from day 1.

I'd been taking ACV (organic apple cider vinegar with the "mother") until a few months ago, so I will resume taking 1 teaspoon in a glass of spring water 6 days a week. I find it improves/balances many things including my appetite and helps regulate my weight.

I have a couple of?'s. It is about Borax. I am on a synthetic thyroid med for hypothyroidism. Will Borax interfere with my thyroid med? I want to take it for arthritis. The meds they put me on don't help now. I have everything working against me. The only one I managed to get rid of was my diabetes. I have high bp & on meds for that & depression & anxiety. Plus I am overweight. I am tired & I want help. Can Borax help with weight?

Borax Dosages
Posted by Cher (Norfolk) on 01/31/2021

I've been reading on the second page of these posts that one poster said he felt Borax supplies 75 mg in a 1/8 tsp--but Dr. Newnham said "...40-60 grams was a dangerous dose and children had been killed with much smaller doses...... So I took 30 mg of borax twice daily, this was 6 mg of elemental boron a day and in a week the pain was less, in ten days the pain was less. In three weeks the pain, swelling and stiffness had all gone, so I stopped taking the borax. A year later the pain and swelling returned so I took more borax and in two weeks all was right again."

It seems that if 75 mg is 1/8 of a tsp, but Dr N. took 60, forgive my math (it's horrible) but wouldn't that mean you should be taking less than 1/8 to get 60 mg (his 30 mg 2x a day)??? So why is everyone taking so much more than he researched and recommended? Pls explain. I am all ears and I don't want to take too much or risk poisoning myself!! Tnx
