This site is very helpful and has a wealth of information. So, thank you for putting it all together. However, it would be exponentially more helpful if EC provided user forums where users could seek and share information with other users in a more direct manner. Whilst reading various posts, I realized that there were many answers sought by users that remain unanswered - even from years prior. I just know we could get the information in a better, more direct manner. The forums could be divided by topic to make it simple to use, I. E. Cancer, auto-immune disorders, skin conditions, detox methods, etc. I'm seeking information regarding heavy metal detox methods for a 13 month old. One person replied with information, but the information was not applicable to my situation. With how EC is now, I probably will not get any further in my search, even though I believe that someone has relevant information. The forums would serve the dual purpose of being a searchable source and be much like the information is now, with the advantage of having more people receiving and sharing more information - quickly. When it comes to health, time is of the essence. Thank you,
EC: Hello SMC,
Thank you for your suggestions! We had this very discussion on EC a year or two ago and while a handful of people liked the idea of turning the site into a forum, the majority of our frequent contributors wanted to keep EC exactly the way it is. Curezone.com, however, is set up this way and might be an excellent place for you to post your questions in a new topic if you haven't already. Please let us know what you learn!
Would be wonderful to be able to put a star or keep a bookmark of an article or articles thats of interest in case one needs to read it again or follow instructions. Just a thought
EC: Hi Leaa,
Registered users on Earth Clinic have that ability when they click on the "Watch This Feedback" eye icon at the bottom of any thread after they have logged in. Doing so puts a thread into the "My Watched Posts" section of your account.

If I would like to submit a new category not already listed under an ailment (or remedy), how do I do this? Or is this done on your end?
Also, is the "yea/nay/..." categorized on your end as well?
Thank you for getting back to me.
EC: Hi Winne,
Yes, please send us your request to create a new ailment's or remedy page. We create new pages about once a week on the site. Yea/Nay is categorized on our end too.
I would like to read Ted's Autism/Asperger's Syndrome in particular, Treatment Protocol? I can't find it anywhere in the postings? I believe I am overlooking it.
I would appreciate anyone pointing it out to me.
In appreciation, Ronda
EC: Hi Rondamommie ,
Always check the Q&A section for Ted's remedies. The link to the Q&A is located at the top of the table of contents menu on most pages.

I cannot find on the site where it lists how to get to Ted's remedies list. Where do I look? Thank you
EC: If Ted has posted a remedy, it will be located at the top of the table of contents on any given page. Look for "Ted's Remedies" or in the Questions & Answers section.
Yesterday I received a great email from a contributor (who wishes to remain anonymous) asking if we would consider adding the following phrase to the bottom of every post. You may have already seen this on many sites like Amazon.com.
Was this review helpful to you? Yes No
3 of 41 people found the above review helpful.
Would you like to see this added to the site? Thanks for your feedback!

I love your site! Read it almost everyday. Not sure how much control you have over it, but I am disgusted by the new ads that are popping up in the middle of your posts. Advertising weight-loss products and Health Insurance are two subjects your readers are trying to get away from! Please remove them!
EC: Hi Louisa,
Thanks for the feedback. We can ban ads only when we have the url of the ad (e.g. www.bad-ad.com). Please let me know which pages you see the irritating ads and the url, if possible. Also, are they Chitika ads or Google ads?
No ads should be "popping up" however, in the middle of posts anywhere on the site. The ads are all located in the same place on every page, either at the very top or the very bottom. Anyone else seeing pop up ads in the middle of a page?
Thanks for your help!
Dear EC: Re: Guidelines:
1) Please correct Ted's error there [under ACV & BS remedies] in which he says "250 mg," but means 250 ml.
2) Also, it would be good to add to the Guidelines a compilation of general facts about getting EC cures to work if at first they do not seem to.
For example, I have read the following types of cases:
A: the cure did not seem to work until it was tried for a longer time than was posted - but then it did kick in. Principle: be sure to try a remedy long enough, sometimes longer than is recommended or typical.
B: a cure was said not to have worked because the person's liver was in too bad a shape --- so, Principle: make sure your liver - or clogged colon or whatever - is fit enough to process the cure. Might need to address that issue first before using a remedy.
C: a cure was reported not to work (it happened to be with the usual ACV amount) until the poster happily reported she upped the amount of the remedy. So, Principle: is to (cautiously)use more than recommended in some instances.
Thanks very, very much for your work & concern for others as displayed by this site.
EC: Thanks for the great suggestions, Judy!
Ted's error has been fixed. The rest of your post will be added to our guidelines page as WISE ADVICE FROM OUR READERS!
Can you please provide us list of abbreviations of different kind of diseases. Example AAA, BKA etc.
Also list of antibiotics.
EC: Hi, Terry.
We have a list of abbreviations here: https://www.earthclinic.com/guides.html
Not sure why we'd need a list of antibiotics on Earth Clinic? One can find many lists on the internet... Here's one: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_antibiotics
Hello EC. I have been reading and posting on this site for a while now and have some concerns as of today. I had asked Ted some questions about borax and soy safety and he did respond back to me , but now I can not find that post of mine or his response any where on earth clinic... All my other post I am able to find. I started looking at Ted recommendations, for people with health concerns and have noticed as of late he is not so much mentioning borax internally, but still is giving instructions for externally.
Are you all moving away from useing borax internally?
Should I be concerned? Because I used it over a six week period internally in the summer of 2008.
I just find it strange that these questions and TEDS response back to me is no longer on here. And it was in the last week or so that I posted it.
Also, I noticed EC dates back to 1999, but I never see any post past 2006, is there an archive or are post deleated after a certain amount of time?
It's to late if for me if borax is not being used internally anymore, as I have already taken it over one year ago, But if Ted is moving away internal suggestions... Then it should be NOTED on the Borax page.
EC: Hi Phil,
Your post and Ted's response about borax is still on the site! It's here - https://www.earthclinic.com/remedies/borax2.html#GF. Nothing was removed.
Okay, this is very weird. I just found your post on the Latest Posts page and then lost it. It seems to be caught in between page 1 and page 2! If you click on the Latest Post link, you won't find it, but if you go to the bottom of Latest Posts page 2 and click the link for page 1, you will find your post. This is obviously a programming malfunction. Thanks for catching it! This is the url to find your posts. https://www.earthclinic.com/latest_posts.php?Start=1.
Dates: Prior to 2006, no dates were posted on Earth Clinic. Read more about the EC dating system here: https://www.earthclinic.com/guides.html#notes (see #3).
Posts are rarely deleted on the site, nor is anything archived except for the Fibromyalgia Questionnaire forms. We will eventually have to start an archive system as some ailments are starting to contain too many pages of feedback like the Bacterial Vaginosis.
i was given your site from my aunt to see if it could help me figure out a remidie for my 7 year old wetting the bed but im new to the site and im not very familiar on how to look things up any help or suggestions please!!!!!!!!!!!
EC: Hi Maggie, please click on the "AILMENTS" tab at the top of any page on the site and it will direct you to an index of ailments. The one you are looking for is here: https://www.earthclinic.com/cures/enuresis.html
I spend a lot of time at the EC site (obviously) and frequently have to log back in. Is there some way that could be remedied? (The having to log in, not the time spent at the site :p)
EC: Hi Connie. Earth Clinic uses sessions rather than cookies for registered users. A session expires every 2 hours, which is why you are finding yourself logged out. At this point we're not planning on supporting cookies (which would allow you to stay logged in longer), but this week we will be adding a log in/password field to the top of every page to save people that extra click!
We make upgrades to the site a little at a time because the programming fees (outside contractor) are so costly!
I love the posts on here but this is my issue....
I want to just cry with frustration...
I can not find my own posts and do not know how to navigate through the sight to get where I want to be to read what I want to read. I wish I could just go to ANY tab (ailments or remedies or last posts) to find what I want to find. Oh please add spell check !!!!!!!!!!!
I have this problem where I type or write the second letter before the next letter (if you know what this is called PLEASE tell !!!) SO, my issue is that I love this site BUT I can not and do not know how to navigate and want to find where I left off. Please help for I feel so foolish.
EC: Hi Sammijo66. You should be able to find your recent submissions on the Latest Posts page once they've been approved. However, certain posts will not be posted on the LP page if we deem them to be too risque (i.e., posts that contain graphic details for conditions like genital warts and bacterial vaginosis).
We're working to improve the registered user section of Earth Clinic so that people wiill be able to find their posts once they sign in under "My Account". Hopefully that will help you...

Hello, when I perform a search and see the results, I then click on a link which brings me to the page of the post I'm looking for but not directly to the post I'd like to read. I know programming is no small feat, but I wonder if it would be possible for your links to take us directly to the post that's quoted?
Thank you in advance. I think this sounds like a good idea, but what do I know?!! I'm a bit technologically challenged at times - love what Earth Clinic teaches me and appreciate all who contribute! Linda
EC: We use Google Search and will have to see if it can be programmed to highlight the key words from your inquiry. Haven't seen it done where you are taken directly to the post, however! Anyone know if this is possible with Google Search?
HAPPY TUESDAY EC: MY ELDERLY FRIEND, CARL, DOES NOT HAVE A COMPUTER SO I EAGERLY PACK MY LAPTOP OVER TO HIS APARTMENT WHERE I CONNECT TO WIFI AND WE IMMEDIATELY LOG IN TO THIS SITE AND ENJOY ALL THE NEW POSTS, ETC...HE EVEN HAS A 14 YEAR OLD CAT SO WE GO TO THE PET POSTS TOO. I HAVE BEEN DOING HIS LAUNDRY, SOME CLEANING, CAT-BOX DUMPING, LIGHT SNACK-PREP, ETC..WHILE HE SLOWLY READS WHAT EVERYONE HAS TO SAY HERE. THEN WE DISCUSS AND IT IS A PLEASUREABLE COUPLE HOURS.

THANK YOU FROM YOUR LOYAL VISITORS IN MISSOULA
EC: Hi Suzi. We use a "normal" font size on this website. However, every website browser gives you the option to increase the font size settings. Internet Explorer does a great job with giving you different options. Firefox doesn't do as good a job with Earth Clinic though..
