About Bill

Posted by Deirdre (Earth Clinic) on 09/08/2017

Hi everyone!

Just wanted to let you know I had a lovely, catch-up conversation with the wonderful Bill Thompson yesterday. He's fine and doing very well! I told him we all missed him greatly.

He's been extremely busy with personal projects, which is why we haven't heard from him in a while. However, he says he'll be back on Earth Clinic in a few months when things settle down and is excited to share a few of his new remedies with us when he does. He does reply to short emails when he has time but doesn't see the posts/questions on EC directed at him as he doesn't check the site regularly.

Have a wonderful weekend. To all those in Florida, the Carolinas and Georgia, our prayers are with you.

TY Deirdre for the Bill update. For yrs I have been playing catch-up on my illness; as it gets progressively worse, I must get aggressively better just to stay alive. Down most times and very down often-times, so my time of giving & receiving lifesaving info here on E.C. has been extremely valuable. Two bad conditions in particular have been remedied due directly to Bill's suggestions and more in minor cases.

Again thanx everyone here who has provided valuable support, and I can report continued slow improvement despite serial pitfalls.

Ditto, Timh,

Many of us have benefitted immensely from following your suggestions for healing, along with directions from Bill, Ted, and many others. This is such a great site for sharing and learning because of the imagination and creativity of Deirdre, and all the contributors. You can count yourself among the top contributors, Timh, because we can always count on your generosity and truthfulness in sharing your experience. Thank you and wishing you the gift of good health soon.

I'm hoping that Bill is ok over in the Phillipines.

Such a dreadful disaster for everyone, and having been lucky to survive in the 2004 Asian tsunami, my thoughts naturally are with everyone but hopefully Bill ok.

EC: Hi Jos,

Yes, Bill is okay. We emailed him the day after the disaster and he replied his area wasn't as hard hit as some other areas.

HI ALL, , , , , , , , , was in EC's archives today and ran across one of Joyce's posts and it brought tears to my eyes. Her posts were common sense. She was a strong woman and we tangled a few times, but I miss her counsel.

Deirdre, I know she's not in the running with Ted, but it would be nice if the new folks could see what she posted over the years.


EC: Haven't received any posts from Joyce in quite a few years, unfortunately.Thanks for the suggestion. We'll have our programmer create something that will link to all of her posts.

I've loved this site for years and years! I don't even remember when I first discovered it but it has helped me numerous times!! On the floor with food poisoning and doing the ACV remedy was a life save!! ); the blackstrap molasses for awful periods, etc, etc, etc. I was a fan when the website wasn't new and it was very rustic =) So I'm so happy to see it doing well! I actually decided to create an account today b/c I was hoping to ask Ted a question about my current condition(s) and I learned he had that stroke. I'm so sorry to hear that but I'm so glad you are doing well and will continue to do so and recover completely (I just know it!! ) ... Anyways, does anyone know how Ted is doing. Thank you for making this site!! It's been a blessing to so many people!!! Oh! The ear infection remedy! Did that one with the heated oil (and then cooled to warm temp) and garlic and it opened my ear and was able to sleep. Remedy after remedy - I can't thank you enough. Lots of love and good blessings!!

EC: Thank you for coming back to EC and setting up an account after all these years. Yes indeed, rustic in the old days  - 'twas the beginning days of the internet when EC went online in 1999.

We haven't heard from Ted's sister since the holidays and suspect that things are still the same. Please consider asking your questions to our other EC contributors. They have picked up where Ted left off and often have great suggestions to those in need.

Lots of love and blessings back to you!

Hi, I am a big fan of your site and find its advice extremely useful, especially with regard to ACV.

However I am less than impressed with the advice given by "Ted". He seems very dogmatic and authoritarian, but not all that well informed. In some cases I know his advice is plain wrong, for example his reply to a breast-feeding mother. His insistence on taking bicarb with Apple Cider Vinegar is also suspect. Users are clearly relying on his advice which I consider worrying.

There was a "Ted" posting similarly on Money Saving Expert a while back. He was banned from the site as he had no medical background but persisted in giving dogmatic and quite extreme advice on supplements etc. Is this him?

I think this is a shame as the site is a wonderful resource, but it seems to me that users see Ted as a guru figure and in fact he is just a very opinionated lay person. People need to find their own way in this field - it can be dangerous to rely on the dogmatic advice of someone like Ted when there is little medical evidence to support his assertions. I wonder if you have considered the implications of his posts.

Regards, Kate

I would think that the people utilizing this website understand that he gives advice, and obviously can't understand all of the complexities each individual is experiencing. With that said, he is a practicing physician who has seen a lot of success in the treatment of his patients. Your comment was unnecessary. I can't imagine this Earth Clinic's Ted is the same Ted who was on "Money Saving Expert". Ted from Earth Clinic never promotes any specific vendor or product, he merely gives his time reading many peoples ailments and gives advice at length because he believes in what he does.

Kate from UK,

Much of what is posted here is anecdotal in nature and often times it will be hard to find scientific studies to back up some of the claims that are made. That is a common part of alternative medicine and anecdotal reports.

Much of what Ted has posted over the years has been based on his own experiences with himself as well as others he has helped and what he has learned in schools and clinical practice. Just because someone posts something on this forum does not mean that anyone should just blindly follow the posted advice without doing their own research first. We are all responsible for doing our own due diligence before trying anything that is posted here and just because it is Ted who is making the post, does not mean that we should be any less responsible in this aspect of alternative medicine. There are no guarantees here and we are responsible for ourselves and the choices that we make. This is a great forum to exchange healthful ideas.

For me, I have found Ted's posts to be not only informative, but useful and effective too. I realize that he does not always have time to elaborate on how he develops his protocols, but when he has in the past, I find his process to be very helpful in understanding how he did.

Given a choice, I would choose to be able to read Ted's posts on here regularly and then make my own decision as to how to use his advice, if at all.

Dear Kate,

Earth Clinic has this disclaimer every page of the site:

Disclaimer: Our readers offer information and opinions on Earth Clinic, not as a substitute for professional medical prevention, diagnosis, or treatment. Please consult with your physician, pharmacist, or health care provider before taking any home remedies or supplement or following any treatment suggested by anyone on this site. Only your health care provider, personal physician, or pharmacist can provide you with advice on what is safe and effective for your unique needs or diagnose your particular medical history.

Much of what you say about Ted could be said about me as well. I have no medical background. (And, I don't actually know what Ted's background is.) I am an opinionated lay person. There is little to no medical evidence to support things that I suggest.

In fact, few EC posters have a medical background. There is little medical evidence for most of natural medicine, which is why EC is so helpful! Folk remedies, unlike expensive pharmaceuticals, are not profitable to research and study.

So many people have come to EC, having been failed by modern medicine and found help, relief and support by lay people sharing experiences, their own research, and their care for others. I agree that it is a risk to treat naturally. Wisdom is needed to decide when to pursue modern medical options. At the same time, I think the risk is less than the risk to submitting to modern medicine for everything. That has proven fatal to many. Robert Henry shared this morning of a man he knows who died at the hand of medical professionals. This happens all the time!

If it comes to pass where I live that I must be a medical professional to recommend a folk remedy, this means I will not be able to give my children nettles for asthma, Apple Cider Vinegar for Diarrhea, or use a charcoal poultice on an infection. It would be dreadful to have to submit to pharmaceuticals for all of these. I would have to deal with side effects and expense of these things, not to mention the common ineffectiveness of them.

Some people may misuse information on EC. Some may follow advice without thinking it through or doing research. But I am grateful for the stories, experiences and advice found here. No one is compelled to use any of it. But many have been blessed by it.

The nature of Earth Clinic is a forum and Ted has the right to share as we all do, within the guidelines of Earth Clinic.

Hi Kate...It's unfortunate that you seem to have no faith in Ted's recommended cures.

Regarding alkalizing while pregnant, it's fairly well known that doctors regularly give sodium bicarbonate with saline by IV in large amounts to the mother when extreme acidosis occurs during birth. Sodium bicarbonate is also used in high amounts by doctors whenever keto-acidosis occurs in diabetics. So much for sodium bicarbonate and alkalizing being dangerous for the body.

In general, I find that your own view and knee-jerk judgement of Ted's many remedies seems to just rest on your own unfounded suspicions that Ted is just a layman quack with strong opinions from Thailand.

But if you go to the Who We Are section of EC you will see that Ted has obtained many qualifications, including a degree in biochemistry. He is also very knowledgeable on herbs. In my own direct communications with him over the years I also know that he has worked for quite a while in the process food and drugs industries in America. There are also many posts on EC that prove and attest to the success of Ted's cures for both autoimmune and iodiopathic diseases -- diseases which modern medicine and big pharma drugs simply cannot cure. He has helped alot of people with these awkward and 'incurable' diseases.

Does the above therefore qualify him to know what he is talking about as a healer?

Lastly, I must add that Ted also gives his healing advice for free. Whenever you go to a doctor in America, it'll cost you $200 just for the privilege of sitting down in his office. You don't see that cost because you think that the NHS is free in UK. It certainly isn't free. Why do you think you have a VAT rate in UK of 20% now? It's little known or appreciated that VAT was invented in UK in the 1950s to pay for the NHS. So you're not really paying 25% income tax -- your effectively paying 45% income tax as an average salary earner now. That's the grip that modern medicine has in Europe in particular. I am also a UK citizen by the way.

And if you really want to know the health benefits of alkalizing then perhaps you should read the book that Ted and I wrote which is sold on EC. Alkalizing is all explained, in very simple terms, in the book. But you don't really have to buy the book because all the necessary details on alkalizing and its successful outcomes are all written and recorded from the many testimonials on this site -- hundreds of them -- which you have not bothered to read.

As a consequence, I feel that your own research and opinions on Ted from Bangkok as a healer resides only on your own rather meager and superficial research mingled perhaps with your own knee-jerk mind reactions about alkalizing. Furthermore, if you judge with such poor validation then you will also inevitably be harshly judged. I fully support independent opinion that is well researched and useful with a good basis. Free opinion is, after all, one of the main building blocks for democracy. Or so the rumour goes...

I would reply to Kate who says she likes this website but is not impressed by Ted's postings. Well you must be one of the few who don't appreciate what Ted writes and has researched, but each to our own opinion and if it wasn't for Ted and Bill and the many other regular posters here, so many people including myself would be at a loss to learn and read of benefits we had been looking for and to then go on and work out for ourselves which protocol we wish to try. No one is forcing their suggestions and cures upon you.

Having read the comments about Ted's remedies and the lady's concern about it, I can only say that I am always very sceptical about any medication both allopathic and herbal, alternative etc till I've tried it. When I tried Ted's Bicarb and lemon after a meal, having been privately here in UK to see a consultant (which cost several hundred was a waste of time ) as the NHS just suggested Gaviscon, my body actually seemed to sigh with relief as I sipped the Bicarb mixture. I've been using it now for about 5 weeks along with the turmeric, ginger and cumin mix you sip during the meal, I can honestly say I've scarcely had a hiccup, no nausea or heartburn, no reflux even when sleeping on a flat bed at a friends rather than my normal raised bed. I have both hiatus hernia and leaky gut and was suffering everyday for months and nothing worked till I found this website. I'm now about to try Bills suggestions of Betaine and Colostrum to see if I can really get cured.

If you're unsure, have you considered finding a well qualified experienced kinesiologist who will test your body for what it needs and what it doesn't like health wise? Good luck. I think we are so lucky to have this wrbsite as anecdotal evidence can be just as helpful as 'scientific research'. After all anecdotal evidence isn't profit related:-)

Is there an easy way to find all the answers from Ted on I very much like Ted's approach. I've bought his book about pH alkalizing and although it is a good book to begin with there is so much more good information from him. Kind regards, Jan

EC: Hi Jan,

So glad you are finding Ted's information helpful. Ted's remedies are found throughout the Earth Clinic site and not located in any one spot. You can, however, find his most recent responses to questions on the Latest Q&A page here. His responses, if any, can always be located either in the Q&A section (top of the Table of Contents menu) and/or by scrolling the Table of Contents menu for "Ted's Remedies". Hope this helps!

What has happened to Ted? I was looking for help with restleg leg syndrome. Although there are lots of answers from other people, and very helpful too. I can't seem to find what Ted has to say about problems these days. Am I looking in the wrong place or has Ted stopped writing in EC? Still think EC is wonderful, so much help and advice. Regards, Jill

EC: Hi, Jill. Ted writes in when he is not busy treating people who come from all over the world seeking his help! We haven't heard much from him in the past 6 months, but when we do, it's posted on the Latest Questions section here:

Please note that we are having a programming error in the Latest Questions section, which we hope will be fixed very soon. Ted's posts are showing up as Ted from Elkon, VA for example, instead of Ted from Bangkok.
