It appears I've missed some information about the "Research" option now available by the "Follow" option. Could you please advise about this??
EC: Hi KT,
Yes, last week we added a link button under each post to Amazon.com. Please read why we did it here.
Our programmer made an update to Earth Clinic yesterday and if you are logged in, you can now indicate if you love a post! Clicking on the heart is not meant to be a Facebook "like", it's meant to be a "I love this post!", which is why it's a heart and not a thumbs up icon.
We see lots of amazing, detailed replies on the Latest Posts page every day and have been looking forward to adding this feature to Earth Clinic so that the wonderful contributors who take time to write a reply can get a little acknowledgement for their time and effort.
Our new feature may have a few glitches, but we should have those fixed by Monday.
You will need to clear your browser history if things look "off". Flag and Follow should not be underlined. If you've cleared your history and are loading the new files, Flag and Follow will now only pop up as you scroll over a post. The only two words you should see at the bottom of a post is Like and Reply.
EDIT YOUR POST
Ever posted something and discovered, oops, it really needs to be fixed? Well, we are thrilled to report that you can now edit your post! To do so, you must be logged into your account. Go to "Your Feedback" and locate the post to be edited. You will see an edit link by your post. Edit and click submit.
The newly edited post will have to be approved again by our moderators (to prevent spam and dangerous links), so your revised post will not appear instantaneously.
Thank you Bill Thompson for requesting this feature!
SHOW THE LOVE
Ever wanted to thank one of our frequent contributors who help people tirelessly, day in and day out? Now you can via a PayPal Donation. In case you haven't noticed it at the top of the site where there's a dropdown menu, we have a donations page where you can make a PayPal donation in any amount to TimH from Kentucky, Mama to Many from Tennessee, Ted from Bangkok or Bill Thompson from the Philippines.
Yes, there are a few frequent contributor names missing on this page. That's because the contributor either declined the offer to be listed or has never submitted a post with an email address, so we have no way of contacting them. Yep, that's right, there are some contributors on Earth Clinic who have sent in hundreds of posts over the years without ever adding an email address to a post!
Here's the page: https://www.earthclinic.com/donations.html
Just wanted to let you know that we just added a new feature to Earth Clinic called "Editor's Choice". Ailment by ailment, we will be reviewing and selecting the most positive, detailed and informative cures on the site and giving them the Editor's Choice label. You will see Editor's Choice links appearing at the top of our Table of Contents menu once we locate the outstanding posts.
If you see happen to come across an amazing post on the site detailing a cure, please nominate it for Editor's Choice by clicking on the icon located at the bottom of the post (next to Print, Email and Watch). Once you nominate a post, it will be placed in our database for the moderators to review. We have hundreds of thousands of posts on the site to be reviewed, so any and all help you can give us in identifying superb posts will be greatly appreciated!
Please note that you will need to be logged in to nominate a post. Also, the "Nominate for Editor's Choice" icon will only be visible on the first post in a thread. Responses to a parent post cannot be nominated for Editor's Choice. Hope this makes sense.
In case you hadn't noticed the new dropdown listings on our navigation menu, we just launched ted.earthclinic.com! All of Ted from Bangkok's remedies and Ted's Q&A dating back to 2004 have been moved to the new section. You can access this new sub-domain by putting your cursor over the "Remedies" or "Recent Posts" navigation tabs at the top of EC. Once you are Ted's site and want to return to the main site here, simply click on the "Earth Clinic Home" button at the very top.
It may take a few more days before the Search button kicks in and posts the newly moved pages on Ted's section.
Check it out!
(Hope, Bc Canada)
Just wanted to let you know that we are in the process of changing all the urls on Earth Clinic (which are currently a mix of uppercase and lowercase letters) to ALL lowercase in the next day or so.
will change to:
We will be correcting all the upper case/lower case internal links found in your posts too. This is just one of the many upcoming changes we will be making in the days to come to improve EC!
After months and months of careful planning, we're excited to announce that Earth Clinic is now a responsive site! This means it will automatically resize according to the screen you are viewing it on. Mobile users will no longer be directed to a smaller mobile site.
Because our programmer and designer changed a lot of the files, please make sure your browser is loading the newest files on Earth Clinic by doing the following. This can often help with pages that aren't displaying correctly:
Windows: click ctrl + F5 at the same time
Mac/Apple: Apple + R or command + R
One of the first things you'll notice on your desktop computer is that the width of the site has increased quite a bit!
We're very excited to let you know that our talented programmer, Tomer, has just redesigned our ailments index list A-Z for desktop computers so you can now see the total number of posts per ailment and the number of cures reported. We think it's a major improvement and hope you will too!
Here it is: https://www.earthclinic.com/ailments.html.
Sorry, mobile viewers won't see this unless they switch to the desktop view. We're working on that!
Earth Clinic is excited to announce the expansion of its Holistic Health Practitioner Directory!
A holistic directory of healers was our original mission when we started Earth Clinic in 1999, but home remedies and natural cures soon took center stage. However, for years now, people from different healing modalities around the world have been emailing us inquiring if they too can be listed in our (very small) healer's directory. So we decided to expand the categories and make it into a "real" directory. And yep, we're even charging for it too, but about half the price of our competitors. We're very happy to put energy back into Earth Clinic's original roots and hope you all will enjoy EC's latest evolution.
Interested Holistic Practitioners - use coupon code LPEC30X19 for an additional 30% off.
Mobile users, welcome to the new mobile version of Earth Clinic! If you are accessing EC from a smartphone, you should see our new mobile layout automatically. It's a big change, but we think the new mobile-only design will offer you a much more readable, easy-to-access experience.
Please note, tablet users will still see the desktop site design (and nothing is changing for those of you who access our website via your computer).
For those of you checking out the new smartphone website, please let us know what you think!
A fond hello to our friends and community members to the north. Just wanted to let you know that after wandering lost for some time in the postal labyrinth, we do now ship softcover books and other items from our Earth Clinic Store. So if you have been waiting to buy directly from us, now you finally can! Thanks for your patience and to all those who have already enjoyed the three books we have published so far.
Eagle-eyed ECers have already spotted it. A brand new Table of Contents system for Earth Clinic! We think you're going to love this. Now, even for topics like Acne with 18 pages of remedies, you can see all of the content headings and potential cures for what ails you from each and every page. Just scroll through the complete Table of Contents listings (mid-upper right on each page), and click on your area of interest. Jump from page one to page 12 and back to three in two steps. Simple!
Wow, Earth Clinic, you've gotten fat! Well into our second decade now, the amount of information on EC has expanded terrifically. Such a resource! But also sometimes a bit too much. We've heard from more than a few of you directly and in your posts, saying that you're having a hard time finding the actual or original remedy and the specific recipe for that remedy. Especially true when there get to be a lot of posts under one Table of Contents heading.
Here's our solution (or at least the beginning of one). On certain pages, and for certain popular remedies you will now find a pair of tabs: Ratings & Reviews is one, Treatments the other. Click on the "Treatments" tab and the semi-official remedy will appear. Check one of them out here: https://www.earthclinic.com/cures/acne1.html#ACV
The "official" remedies were written after reviewing and distilling the information from all the existing feedback in that sub-section. Up for debate and not the perfect version for each individual case, but an excellent place to start.
Just FYI, a lot of these Treatment recipes were derived from the collection of natural remedies in our Nature's Best Remedies book. Not identical information, and certainly more conveniently corralled in the book, but we truly hope a service to the whole community in both forms.
We'll be rolling out more of these as the year goes on, so look for them to show up throughout the Ailments section. And please let us know what you think!
