Borax may inhibit breast cancer

A poster said borax increases estriol in women. According to Wikipedia:

"estriol has been found to inhibit estradiol-induced proliferation of triple-negative breast cancer cells through blockade of the GPER".

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?

Hi..

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?

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..

Maybe try taking some charcoal to help with die off symptoms. It helps kidneys too.

The symptoms you were experiencing was the candida die off. It makes you feel horrible but that's how you know that it is working.

I am 60 years old, diabetic and had chronic vaginal candidiasis. Six months ago, I have had severe itching and swelling on my genital and anal area. I also have had cheese-like white discharge on my labia and pain when I urinate which driving me crazy. I tried every remedy I know, but to no avail, until I' ve read about the borax. Every time I urinate and wash my private part, I dab my fingers( ring and point fingers) on borax powder and spread the powder on my genital and anal area. I feel soo relieved..Iam simply amazed at the progress I made with this...hope this will help... Sunny Grandma

Try MMS (there is a lot of info in the internet) when you shower, using a douche bottle or simple a water bottle full with water at body temperature and 6 drops of mms. Introduce just the mouth of the bottle in your part, and by squeezing the bottle, the water with the mms will get inside and some will be back to the bottle. Squeeze it many times. If you have candida the water left in the bottle will have some white components. Repeat the treatment for few day until you feel you have the problem no more.

Allow me to thank you with all my heart for such an exhaustive page on Borax.

When my new born son as an infant had thrush in his entire mouth the allopath paediatrician prescribed some dark violet coloured liquid to be painted with a brush inside his entire mouth.

In India , those days there was no Internet.

Among Indians the tendency is to accept whatever the allopath says as gospel. Sparing you all the complications that followed soon. His thrush was not cured however.

Eventually a Homeopath prescribed Borax in potentized form. Which got rid of this thrush miraculously. Many women suffer from candida infection. I believe it is this candida that manifests as thrush in our babies.

Thank you once again & all the others who have responded with pertinent queries & feedback.

I became a fan of borax when my son was 2 years old and had the chicken pox. His doctor told me to put him in a bath with borax and it would help with his itching. It was wonderful. He would sleep for hours after his borax fix. I used about 1 cup of borax in a tub of water deep enough to cover him. Now, I am trying to cut back my water usage. To do that I put a few oz. of borax in the bottom of a dixie cup and fill it with water. I pour it over my hair and rinse. Instead of using a cream rinse, I use a leave in spray rinse from my hair dresser. It helps save my well water, and my hair has never been so beautiful and soft. TRY IT!!!


Chronic Laryngitis, Difficulty Swallowing

Following a severe chronic illness from which I have otherwise fully recovered, my singing voice was lost. Although I am a trained vocalist in both soprano and alto ranges, I was only able to sing tenor for seven years. In addition, I experienced a difficulty swallowing such that I would frequently have to try twice to make a single bolus pass my epiglotis. I never connected these two problems in my mind, but after a week of very conservative borax use I have experienced relief from both. I have most of my singing voice back, but for a slight artifact on a few notes, and my swallowing has become normal again. I suspect that the cause of both of these problems was a swollen set of parathyroids, which correlates with hyperparathyroidism, which is known to be a possible result of boron deficiency. While by no means conclusive, I think I have a fairly good explanation for my experience and I would recommend careful use of borax to anyone willing to take the "risk".

Two of my kids have 'tried' to come down with colds during the last two weeks. When my son's hit, he was coughing so hard he was nearly vomiting. My daughter woke up coughing, a very sore throat and her voice was almost gone. Usually I have them do the inhaling of peroxide a few times a day and give them at least 1/4 cup of organic vinegar with 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper, a little cinnamon and water each day. This time I added Borax water (1/8 teaspoon to 1 liter of water) to the mix-and their colds were gone in less than 12 hours. No one was more stunned than I was that it worked so fast! But I shouldn't have been surprised. I have had painful joints from fibromyalgia for years, but sometimes the pain in my right shoulder is almost unbearable (I'm right-handed). The last flare had been going on about 2 months and I was getting very little sleep, which was what spurred my finally giving in and trying the Borax. Within three days the severe pain was gone and I was back to just the normal pain! Now I just need to make myself drink it EVERY day and maybe all the pain will go away.

But, back to the original subject, everyone says there is no cure for the common cold. After what we saw earlier this month, I have to disagree!

3 tablespoons borax, 2 tablespoons 3% hydrogen peroxide, and enough water to make a paste.

Use this as a scrub on your face and neck and the liquid on a cotton ball for your ears

Demodex (Face Mites) Demodex is a type of mite that lives in human hair follicles, usually on your face. Almost everyone has these mites, but they usually don't cause any problems. But Demodex can multiply too quickly in people who are immunocompromised or have other skin conditions. That causes an itchy, irritating condition called demodicosis.

I am a woman and suffer from severe rosacea and demodex mites. can sometimes feel them crawling on parts of my face and eyelids. I have started internal borax treatment for my demodex after being encouraged by the reports on earth clinic. I ordered griffith borax and mixed about 1/10th teaspoon in filtered water and sipped it all day. distilled drinking water is not available in India

today is my 4th day- started on 16th, Monday. my face is quite red and inflamed for last 8 -9 days. There is no relief since I started the borax- face continues to be really bad. I just feel tired and a bit nauseous.

I can't do borax and peroxide since I also have dermatitis and very sensitive skin.

Please help with some advice on what I can do.

Thanks, M

You are experiencing the typical detox. This detox can take 2 to 3 weeks to finally resolve itself. This does depend however on how bad your condition(s) is. Be patient and do not give up. Best wishes to you on this journey.

borax/dermodex mites

Hello, im new to all this but im so glad i found this site. I found it through searchs at curezone.com i knew i was dealin with nanoinsects and iv been using the exact measurements of borax and alittle Hydrogen Peroxide with a liter of water that Ted says to do. Iv been on it for about 5 days now and many many of the dermodex mites came to the surface of my skin. Its really gross, its all over my arms, shoulders and back. All over my stomach and legs. I dont know how i got it but i know i had it for many years since iv suffered from eczema all my life, im 27 yrs old now.

I really hope this stuff works quickly because as of right now i dont even want to go to the store. I got long sleeves but its really bad. I took a few baths with borax and i know its working. I always wanted to get to the source of the problem and attack it but i never found out how till now. No matter how long it takes i hope to be cleansed of all these nasty bugs. I also wanted to write and thank you for leading people to the truth and what most doctors wont tell us. So thank you from the bottom of my heart.

sincerly,
nick

I wanted to give an update. Back then when I did that cleanse I had the bad reaction and stopped because I was in alot of pain. I know now that I was so close, I should of kept with it. But now 4 years later I am doing the cleanse again and have been for the last week or so. I have been going by the guidelines of what Ted has said to do: 1/4 teaspoon in one liter of water and taking the 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda with a cup of water 2 times a day. I'm also adding the borox to my shampoo and body wash. One thing that happened sometime after I stopped the cleanse back in 2010, I had to get cataract surgery. I don't know if it was because it was from drinking the borax or I might of got it in my eyes when used the saturated solution on my face. I will be more careful this time. I notice when I do the borox cleanse my eyes feel itchy and watery. Hopefully things will be okay with my eyes while doing the cleanse. As for my skin, I know it's gonna get bad before it's gets better. I'm glad to have found this site and remedy because I always wanted to get at the root cause and not just treat the symptoms.

UPDATE:

I posted last year as Mary Margaret. I suffered desperately with severe pain and depression for 17 years. I am now well. I followed Teds Borax detox protocol for 3 weeks to rid my body of fluoride. I thought I might die from the severity of the headaches body pain and stomach pain and sickness during the Borax treatment. At the end of 3 weeks I was almost 100% well. Then I slowly got off the cymbalta and stopped taking ibuprofen. It's been almost a year now. When I completed the Borax treatment I followed Jason Utley's Fibromyalgia cure. A few times during these last four months I had neck and head pain return. I did Borax for 3 days and the pain was gone. I take all the vitamins recommended by Jason Uttley three or four times weekly. I use only coconut oil for cooking. I NEVER touch any soda whatsoever and very little sugar or white flour or milk products. About six months ago I switched from Thyroxin to Armour thyroid for my low thyroid. I weighed 178 in March of this year and now I weigh 153. I also walk ALOT and dance on my little trampoline. Life is so awesome. I have no more depression and very little pain.. Mostly no pain. I still have some gastritis and once in awhile my eyes burn. I have a lot of mercury in my mouth which I haven't been able to get removed due to finances. All of you w Fibromyalgia read Jason Utley's cause and cure and look for Teds Borax protocol. I'm living proof that Fluoride is a major cause of this disease.

THANK YOU Earthclinic... Jason and Ted. What an amazing blessing you have given me.

I have been detoxing for 3 years, after discovering a load of heavy metals, microbes and radiation poisons that almost ended my incarnation this time round.

Recently I have discovered heavy calcification that occurs due to microwave radiation exposure (cell, wifi, wireless phones, 5G, etc., ovens, smart meters ... you get the idea.) The voltage gated calcium channels are affected by frequencies in this range and this can increase the intake of calcium into our cells by 7000 times! Check out this interview of Dr. Martin Pall by Mercola:

https://mercola.fileburst.com/PDF/ExpertInterviewTranscripts/Interview-MartinPall-TheHarmfulEffectsOfEMFOnHealth.pdf

What to do? Get the calcium out! Recently I have tuned into Tony Pantalleresco, a Canadian herbalist. He has many Youtube videos, including this one:
https://youtu.be/gT2AE_0f3TU

And also has "recipes" on his website, mentioned in the youtube videos.

His recipes and protocols are the best! Borax is right up there in his recommended list, along with sodium thiosulfate, iodine and other easily procurable items. His youtube channel:

Good luck detoxing.

I tried Borax for the first time last summer. I had a normal detox reaction, I was so toxic as I had not detox in many months. It really did work. I felt like I had the flu for about 3 days and then it subsided. I like the idea of being able to detox without spending a fortune. This is good for those with limited income. A whole box will last a very long time. I also use it as a hair rinse and in my clothes. It can also be given to a dog or cat to detox as their food is not perfectly pure either and they breathe the same air we do. I also like to take activated charcoal along with Borax. If, after taking Borax, you break out, it is just toxins coming out through your skin. Keep detoxing, you will be so glad you did!

I'm glad I found your post about breaking out. Every time I try using the borax at 1/8 tsp in 1 liter of water (sipped throughout the day), 5 days on, 2 days off--I end up with boils and "pimples".

The first round I got a big blueberry sized boil on my chin. Took over a month for it to go away and was embarrassing! I stopped drinking the borax and waited until the boil was gone. I also got small ones on my behind and a bunch of small ones on my scalp.

Second time, I got just a few medium and small ones.

Three weeks ago, I did another week of borax drink and developed 5 small hard pimples (never came to a head though) next to my mouth on one said and 3 on the other side. They are still not gone going into week 4 even though I have not used the borax since that first week. I know boils take weeks to clear up so I'm just waiting. Scalp had a lot again and some small ones in my inner thigh and behind. I take a break when I get them and don't start again until they heal.

I was wondering if this is part of healing. I believe I have staph infection becauce I've been getting folliculitis for the past 3 years. So I assumed this might be the staph purging. I am going to keep doing on this until I can do two weeks in a row without an outbreak. Then try for 3 weeks and so on. Then get up to a month without reaction and taper back off.

I have used Borax in my laundry for years but never dreamed it could be used for so many other things. I have started soaking in really hot water, as hot as I can stand, with about a cup of Borax and a cup of Epsom Salt... sometimes 1 1/2 cups each. My reasoning behind this was to detox, right now I cannot wrap my head around ingesting Borax... I have IBS and toxins tend to build rather quickly in me, but let me tell you... the next day WOW! Let me just say, it has been a very long time since I have felt this empty. Oh and my skin is so soft.

Ahhhhh!!! I am sooo confused.. I just started making my own dishwasher detergent with Borax (Mule Team) and Arm & Hammer Washing Soda, and was about to make a batch of Laundry detergent using the same ingredients, Now I read that I should not be using Borax ( especially in Dishwasher ) because it could be leeching into my dishes therefore my food and making us sick... Can someone PLEASE calm my fears? Or at least tell me the real truth? Trying to be green and healthy as well as save money.

Also, if Bleach was accidently mixed with a detergent that I didn't know had ammonia in it, (another homemade cleaner),could it have damaged my or whomever used it lungs, and would the symptoms show immediately? Daughter has been sick for a month with lung issues, and now I am thinking back to that homemade bathroom cleaner, she does have allergies, and it is that season at our house, dust, pets, pollens etc.. So maybe I am just panicking...

The dishwasher detergent would be a lot more poisonous to you than borax. Borax in small doses is necessary for our health. There are 20 MG of Boron (the element in Borax) in an organic apple. We are all deficient because it isn't an element added in the commercial fertilizers. Boron will help most conditions.
