Hi everyone, I know Ted says that we should ingest 1/4 teaspoon of borax in 1 litre of dechlorinated/defluorodated water... Just wondering if it's cool to add 1/4 teaspoon of borax to 1 litre of distilled water to drink??
This question is for Ted if possible. I want to try the Borax cure for extreme arthritis and fibromyalgia. I have had breast cancer that is estrogen and progesterone positive. This means I have too much estrogen and progesterone in my body that feeds the cancer. I am worried that taking the borax might have an effect on my hormones. I am past menopause and at this stage I should have very little hormones at all. I am doing ok with the cancer so don't want to irritate that problem. I would so love to stop the pain associated with the other problems. Cannot keep taking over the counter pain relievers much longer without serious stomach problems. Many thanks to you all for your help.

I would like to know what effects the Borax protocol would actually have on hormones. I have had fibromyalgia for over 25 years and now have arthritis so terribly I can hardly move across my kitchen. I have had breast cancer however. It was estrogen and progesterone positive. I had a low grade form of cancer and had it removed at biopsy. I did not take radiation or tamoxifen which was offered but chose to increase my iodine level. I don't want to antagonize my cancer by doing the wrong thing. I have taken so many years of over the counter pain relievers I am afraid I can't do it much longer. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I have a question regarding Ted's Borax Cure.. I have recently purchased a bottle of Borax (sodium borate Cleaning Agent and Deodorizer from Laboratoire Atlas Inc. Montreal, Quebec, Canada) at Walmart's pharmacy as they did not have the 20 Mule box in the laundry section. Other than what I have written above, there's no other ingredient written on the bottle so I can assume its close to 100% borax?
Can this product be safe for human consumption using the required dosage taken from your site in 1L of water?
I need to know if Boric Acid is the same as Borax. I could not find Borax in Toronto. Best Regards, Azhi

Coles sell "Bare Essentials" Borax. Found the safety data sheet on their website (pascoes.com.Au)it says it is not classified as a dangerous good according to the ADG code. The ingredient is Disodium Tetraborate Decahydrate 100%. Is this a safe one to ingest?
what is borax? or where can I get it ? I have found sodium percarbonate no perborate like the remedie says. the ingredient I have found it in many forms of detergent. would anyone help me and give me some guidance or products that will have it? thank you very much.

will borax kill all good and bad bacteria when you take it? i would also like to take kefir-how could I best do this? i appreciate your advise, thank you.
I read in the post awhile back about a man that had jock itch for years and washed with borax and it immediately felt better. Well I tried over the counter remedies and was going to go to the doctor to get something because it itching for a couple of months was becoming unbearable.
I tried different oils and it seemed to make the situation feel better, but no real change. I started using ACV and slowly I saw where the area was being cured. However, after dampening my cloth, sprinkling borax on it (the muletrain type), and washing with it, the itch IMMEDIATELY went away. after washing with it twice a day for 2 days, it seemed the entire rash was healed.
I now use borax as a body scrub and have a toenail fungus that I am going to try it on. I am using ACV, and it is slowly going away. But, if it worked that quick on the jockitch, Im sure it will knock out the toe fungus too.
borax - overdose? help!
I have mis-read the instructions for taking borax. I have taken 1/8 teaspoon in a glass of water. Instead of in 1 litre of water. Should I be worried about this?

I need clarification on just how much borax weekly and daily. Ted's instructions are 1/8 tsp per liter taken weekly in divided doses throughout the day. Does this mean 1/8 tsp per liter everyday throughout the week or all of it in one day? And only one day. Need clarification if I am going to do it.

Hello: I am newly introduced to the concept of Borax for healing. And many posts that suggest 20 Mule Team Borax, sold in the USA, is for human ingestion, especially because 1/8 tsp is dissolved in 1 liter water. However, I am looking at the 20 Mule Team box now and its side panel specifically states the following:
#1. It's ingredients is Sodium Tetraborate (a synonym for Sodium borate decahydrate or Borax). The box further states it contains no phosphates or chlorine.
#2. The box further states that its contents are not to be taken internally, first aid for ingestion is to drink milk or water/do not induce vomiting, call a physician immediately, not for drug use.
I've got an eMail into 20 Mule Team now to have them further qualify their no ingestion order.
What's the deal? Is 20 Mule Team Borax safe or not safe for ingestion--please provide real reasons why. Thanks.
Hi Ted! I add vitamin C in a form of magnesium ascorbate to my all day drinking water. Is it safe to add borax to it also? Will there be any interaction?
Thank you! Alex
Have there been studies in which the excretion of fluoride has been shown to increase with the use of borax?
About this Borax material. I bought some of the Team Mule brand Borax in the laundry aisle and it warns that it should not be taken internally or used for medicine. I contacted them personally and they do not make any claims for human consumption. I understand that many people are uneasy about taking it because of these reasons. Can you shed any light on this? Are there any mainstream articles referring to the use of this substance? I've tried the pellets but they're quite expensive for what you get. Thanks!
