Hello all,

Hope this is beneficial to some other like sufferers...

I have been suffering from skin Mites for the past 2.5 years.

Been on Iodine hard for about a month or so, big help. 20 - 30 drops SSKI 2 or 3 times a day, SSKI I got off curezone. 5 drops Magnascent once or twice a day. 2 weeks ago I started with the Borax as well. I use 1/4 tsp in 1 quart of distilled water and consume 2 of these a day. I'm also having 1 - 3 Tblspn of Flax oil a day and also oil pulling each morning for 20 minetes first thing.

The relief has been phenomenal, 95%. Just what I needed after 2.5 years of absolute hell.

I believe in the power of Iodine and Borax working together.

I have Curezone and this forum to thank for my progress and a elevated outlook on life. All you Iodine and BoronBorax users have been a great help. As a result of Ted and Ginagirl (curezone) post's, jumping over the wall and trying borax was a breeze.

Lets keep the light on.

Scott

Hello all,

Just here to update my usage of Borax as my source of Boron. It's the 14th of July 2010 and I've been ingesting roughly 1/4 tsp of Borax daily for over a year. It has continued to be a great help with my skin mites and now I am using it in a P&B shake to help clear the fungal overgrowth in my intestines from my Candidias. We all have choices to make about what we use for our health and how we use it. My health is ultimately my responsibility, as such I choose to educate myself. Scott

I have been taking borax internally for 5 days. I haven't been following the 1/4 tsp/gal rule but have been taking it mixed in hot green tea because I needed to drink a lot of tea and I noticed the borax dissolves better in hot water. Because I didn't have a good method of measuring precisely into 8 oz I just take the tip of my finger, dip it in the borax and whatever sticks to my finger I put in the tea. So far no ill effects so I don't believe I am overdosing. I have been drinking upwards of 10 cups of green tea and Shizandra detox tea (for liver, chest congestion, and cough) per day for the last 5 days. Also I started drinking ACV 2 tbsp and 1/2 tsp baking soda in 8 oz of water yesterday. I also started oil pulling 4 days ago. I mention these other remedies in case they have had an effect on the progress of my illness, but I believe most of the progress has been due to the borax (although the oil pulling is remarkable at removing plaque and tartar, my mouth feels like I just came from the dentist).

I don't usually get sick but my health has been rapidly deteriorating for about 5 weeks. It took me awhile and some research to link the strange acne, skin rash near my eye, and intense sinus headache without much mucus and sensitivity to beer to going to a friend's house for his birthday last month. His pit bull has an odd skin condition unidentified by vets with redness and some hair loss which they say is not mange (not that I have confidence that they would know). I know this because I remember he asked me about it and I gave him an oil mixture of emu oil, VCO, and immune boosting and skin healing essential oils which he says has improved the condition. Anyway I came to conclusion that I had contracted whatever disease the dog has by petting the dog and then probably rubbing my eye. I imagine it involves mites or other small insect, fungus and/or yeast. I have very sensitive acne prone skin, but my acne has been generally under control due to diet, OCM, etc. until just the past few weeks where I broke out with increased rosacea-like redness and odd cysts that did not want to heal. I also had a nonstop sinus headache which drinking more water did not help without much drainage and a cough which did not produce much phlegm. After a couple days of research (which is how I came across the borax treatment for mites and fungus) I self-diagnosed myself as having a combination of candida, fungus infection of lungs and sinuses, and mites infecting the skin. I think I may have already had the candida (probably from working in bars around so much secondhand toxic smoke) and it depressed my immune system.

The very first day I started taking the borax I began to pee green which I was very pleased about since I knew it was from die off. I peed green on and off for a couple of days, and my pee still has a slight tinge to it at times, but I believe most of the candida, bacteria etc. is dead by now. (BTW, I had already been drinking copious amounts of green tea for a couple of days without this effect so I know it was due to the borax) I also treated my face with the borax/H2O2 in water and the acne and rash were almost gone after two days, and the spots are now healing. A rather disturbing effect of the borax taken internally is that you could feel it working. I now know exactly where all my sinus cavities and canals are because I could feel them burning one after another (I did not know I had a cavity in the top of my head and back of my head linked by canals behind the ears and over the top of the head and behind the eyes to the sinus cavities in front. I wonder what these are called?). Interestingly my bad wrist and toes would burn also, and a small area of my lower left abdomen (inflamed intestine maybe?). The most disturbing sensation was to feel critters die all over my body in the middle of the night. Needless to say I did not sleep well, the sensation could drive a person raving mad. Also, yesterday morning after oil pulling my right nostril began to drain lots of thin watery and waxy clear yellow-orange fluid. I have no idea where that was from but I assume it was a good thing to get rid of it.

Three days into the borax treatment my week long headache went away. The strange acne is now healed (5 days - internal and external treatment). I still cough and have some chest congestion but now at least I am coughing productively. I am hoping the chest congestion will clear up soon. My bad wrist and toes do not hurt as much nor pop as much as they used to. Possibly I had beginning stages of RA (I am 29) and the borax killed of the mycoplasma? I don't know but I am happy about it, I didn't expect the treatment to help.

In response to 3/20/2009: Briana from Indianapolis, IN: I sure wish you would return to this post and put a follow up post here to let us know how you are doing now. And the result over time. I know from experience natural holistic things do not work over night. I dissolved a 1/8 of a teaspoon of Borax in warm water today, because I noticed that it does not dissolve very well in cold water.

I use a very small amount of borax - half cup or less - in my bath, and I have noticed that whenever I do this I have mild diarrhoea.

Also, since these baths I have noticed a creepy crawly sensation under my skin in just one localised spot on my shoulder. I feel it the most when I first wake up in the mornings, and is absent the rest of the time. Hopefully it is not Morgellon, as there are no other symptoms.

Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks.

My daughter is a student and the house she shares is damp and full of fungus on the walls. Her room is the worst. When I went to pick her up for the Christmas holidays I took a plastic spray bottle of Borax and water (just put enough Borax in so that no more will dissolve). I sprayed the walls with it when I arrived and then wiped all the fungus off. After helping her pack I sprayed the walls again and just left them to dry. This was a last ditch attempt to make things better because the landlord would not do anything.

When I took her back after Christmas I didn't know what we would find but imagine my delight when we walked into her room to find not a trace of mould.

Thanks to all on this website who have written about Borax and how it kills fungus.

I hope this helps others in the same situation.

By the way, I live in the UK and it is impossible to buy Borax in any shop (even Boots). They are now selling something called 'Borax substitute' and no-one will give me a straight answer as to why they won't sell Borax. One assistant in Boots said that it was because old people used to put it in their eyes. Anyway, I eventually ordered a tiny amount from Amazon and to be honest you don't need a huge amount. Though one chemical company said they would sell it to my by the ton at a very good price.

Warning

In the UK check your local asian food stores, some asians use borax when making noodles, it appears that the product for the eyes you purchased from amazon is boric acid not the salt Sodium borate decahydrate which is basic not acidic

again as is mentioned on the first page of this topic dont take boric acid

A dilution of Borax in water worked beautifully on curing my daughter's mouth sores. She had cracks in the corners of her mouth for a few weeks. I applied herbal balms and kept them clean, but they just weren't going away. Then I checked earth clinic, my favorite site, and someone mentioned that its a fungal infection. My lucky day!! Because I know Borax knocks out fungus like no ones business. And it didn't disappoint this time either.

So I just diluted Borax in water, about 1/4 cup of Borax in 8 oz. Use warm water and stir until most is dissolved. Sometimes you're left with extra borax crystals and that's ok. Now you use this solution on the corners of your mouth 2-3 times per day, or anywhere you have a fungal infection. Just saturate a cotton ball and dab on. Don't rinse off, just air dry. It may cause drying. You can use a nice herbal salve or whatever to moisturizer. I also recommend applying borax to any fungal infection for 5-7 days after the sores have cleared. Fungus is a tricky beast. You gotta kill every last bit or it'll sneak back in..

Well that's it! Seriously, try this remedy for yeast and fungus. You won't regret it. And nothing to be worried about...Borax is less toxic than table salt if swallowed. Its a useful internal remedy too, but that's another subject matter. Good luck!

MSM might be good against borax die-off reactions

Taking a serious risk, I took 1/4 teaspoon of borax with a glass of water. The next day, I got strong Herx reactions primarily including stomach and gut pain, nausea, and slight pains or pressures in various regions of my head.

I noticed that a teaspoon of MSM powder (which I've been using for a week now) with a glass of water and orange juice alleviated the reactions.

There are two methods of taking this 20 Mule Team Borax powder. One is to put one teaspoon of the powdered borax in a liter of water and then use this by putting a teaspoon of this water in a glass of water once or twice daily. The second way is according to Ted's advice which is for men to put 1/4 teaspoon of the 20 Mule Team Borax into a glass of water once daily and drink the whole glass. He also recommended for women to put 1/8 teaspoon of the Borax into a glass of water once daily. I have read where it's according to your weight and that some women can use the man's dosage.

For me, I am a little heavier at 200 lbs and a woman and what works for me is I started with the 1/8 tsp in water, it worked well for me, I started slowly for a week or so and I also read to take a magnesium capsule once daily to offset any symptoms as this borax seems to work hand in hand with the magnesium. I take one 500mg magnesium capsule in the morning with breakfast. This works for me. After doing well with the 1/8 of a tsp of the 20 mule team borax I upped the dosage to where I take this two times per day in a hot large cup of coffee.

I have taken this for a month now and it seems to be helping me with the stiffness in my shoulder joints which I could not raise above my shoulder level without pain before and can raise straight up now, much stronger with very little pain if any and I run my rototiller about once a week, have a large garden and work daily on two acres, keeping it mowed and taken care of. Plus I am almost 70 yrs old. This has also been helping to dissolve my kidney stones and has helped my IBS very much. Helped my partner's arthritis in his knees a lot also. So for me this works well.

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.

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.

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!

I have been taking Borax for almost 5 years now. As long as I take with 400mg magnesium at least 4 days a week I am pain free as far as arthritis. I am 55, and need not hormone replacement therapy.

Also bathing in Borax and Epsom Salts is amazing for skin. 3/4 cup of each. I fill bath with water filter shower head when bathing.

Started using Borax over 3 months now. Before I started, my health was going down hill fast. My ovaries failed kicking in early menopause over 2 years ago. My thyroid function was way out of whack. Bone loss was occurring quickly along with joints deteriorating. Psoriasis on my scalp worsened and arthritis from it was insane. Cholesterol levels increased, Vitamin D levels plummeted. I had intense muscle tension, weakening muscle strength, hair loss, thinning skin, dry skin, worsening vision, bone spur on my spine, heart palpitations, depression, anxiety, brain fog, extreme fatigue, UTI's. Yeast infections, shortness of breath, blood sugar fluctuations, bleeding gums, chipping teeth, loss of libido, migraines, jaw pain, receding gum line, and I could probably go on. Discovered the use of Borax for treating a UTI and Yeast infection. I refused to take antibiotics to worsen my issue.

Made up some gel capsules with Borax to insert. Within days the problem was gone. I was astonished. To my surprise, I learned that I could possibly treat myself for a lot of the problems I had going on. I had been badly affected by halides like fluoride, bromide and chloride. Gut bacteria too of course. Started taking Borax by the Walter Last method after learning about our deficiencies with Boron due to depleted soil, and water. Used 1 tsp of Borax Powder in one liter of distilled water dissolved in a glass container. Took one tsp daily from that liter 3mg of Boron. Felt it right away. Noticed a decrease in pain in 3 days. Had a herxheimer reaction about a week into it. Backed off and started back when I felt better.

All was good, increased to 2 tsp daily for 6mg daily. Always took my doses with magnesium spaced out. 400mg Oral Glycinate and used Magnesium oil (transdermal magnesium chloride) Felt more pain with the increase, but this time, I started taking a bath in 1/2 cup Borax and 1/2 cup Epsom, daily sometimes twice for 20 min.

These baths were phenomenally healing for me. Made me feel so good afterwards. My skin loved it. It got softer and had a nicer appearance. I also soaked my head and scalp for my psoriasis. This really helped with the plaque build up and itch. Very nice on my hair too. After my bath I moisturized with a mixture of Organic Cold pressed unrefined Virgin Coconut oil and Avocado oil. (Avocados are a source of Boron.) Soon increased my dose to 9mg, 3 tsp spaced out. Still used ample magnesium to help correct the calcium metabolism and took my baths.

About a little over a month went by and I decided to try to drop off my prescription medications to see if I really still needed them. One by one I quit taking them. Asthma inhaler, Asthma Steroid, Nasal Steroid, Anti depressant, Anti Anxiety, Migraine and Allergy. I wasn't even taking much aspirin or ibuprofen. Didn't even seem to miss them. My pain had decreased so much. I was getting my life back after wanting to give up. Fast forward to today, pain has decreased to almost none. Bones feel much stronger as do my joints. My energy has returned, depression has lifted, I'm not as anxious. My thyroid gained correct function, no more heart palpitations, weakness, muscle weakness, or bone pain.

My hair stopped falling out and has returned to growing back in. Skin feels more youthful and not dry. Eye sight seems to be improving still. Libido has increased some, no more gut issues, UTI's or yeast infections so far. My nails are even growing longer and stronger. My bone spur on my spine disappeared, psoriasis improved, cholesterol and vitamin D levels are improved, muscle tension is very seldom. Another thing I did other than getting rid of fluoride and tooth paste with it, I used some of my dissolved dose as part of my oral healthcare. Poured some of the mixture on my toothbrush during brushing every time. In no time, my teeth were not chipping, sensitive or weak. Gums stopped bleeding and I had no mouth sores.

The best part, my teeth are getting whiter all the time! I'm just amazed at the results I have had. I'm continuing with a maintenance dose of 3-6 mg daily and I'm still a fan of my baths and tooth care routine. Borax has been a life saver for me. I will continue to introduce others to it. My whole family are fans too. Even my dog without her case of the itchies. It doesn't always take large doses to be effective. Low and slow is my motto. Don't forget magnesium and other essential vitamins too! Don't give up! If used properly, Borax can be the best thing we can do for our health!

God Bless!

Sounds really good.

I had similar results with 1/4 teaspoon of borax in 1 litre of water too. But I was way too infected with parasites so I did the following to really attack the pesky things:

1. Applied tiger balm daily to twice a day to my whole body for many months(close to a year I believe), mixed with 20 to 40 drops of oil of oregano, 20-40 drops of clove oil, 20-40 drops of tea tree oil and 2 tablespoon of olive oil.

2 make another mixture of the above oils added to 1/4 cup of black-seed oil to take orally with a teaspoon once or twice a day, NO Tiger balm and tea tree oil in this mixture please.

3. Took 1 teaspoon to 2 tablespoons of charcoal in water to absorb toxins in my body.

This is really important since the parasites release a whole lot of toxins the body cannot easily remove naturally.

4. Boiled and took a mixture of parasite killing herbs like cloves, wormwood, golden seal root powder and walnut leaves.

Do this until your tongue turns pink, if your systemic infection was really bad. This might take months to years. Don't give up. Additionally, drink green vegetable juices at least once a day.
