I know of someone who has an 11 yr old girl who lives with them and she requires this child to ingest 3 to 4 heaping teaspoons of ground black pepper each day, I am thinking that this cannot be healthy, but the individual says it is a home remedy for a constant cough ( child sounds like they have croup ) Any posts or ideas of what actions if any I should take toward the child in questions health. I have thought of calling Child Protective Services, but am unable to find ANY internet info on that amount of black pepper ingestation.

I have been taking Unsulphured BSM in the last 2 weeks. Not keeping track of how much. May be more than 2 tbspoons per day. Something truly awful happened to me: I have a fecal incontinence while at a restaurant having a glass of wine (or 2). I did not really feel the urge to go to the bathroom. It happened and it shocked me and embarrassed me to death. Thank God no one noticed. My question is: would BSM and the iron in it have triggered something when combined with wine? I would also appreciate any advice. I am 61 and in a (very) good physical health. Please share your experience if this happened to anyone. Thank you very much and thank God for this site where I can ask such a question.
I'm hoping someone can help me figure out why I have started reacting to the blackstrap molasses. I read about it last year and started to take it in a glass of warm water with ACV and manuka honey, it was great for about 3-4 months, I felt fantastic I pulled out about 20 grey hairs that had colour at the root... Life was wonderful ;-)
Then I started to react to it, my knuckles on the left index finger first get inflamed then the right, then the next finger and so on till all the joints on my fingers are inflamed and burning then they become so bad they crack open and weep... I stopped taking it and they got better... I tried it again last week and within 2 days I has the allergy started on the left finger.
I don't eat vegemite either anymore as I have the same above reaction.. I tried it again 1 month ago just a tiny it on my bread... The next day I woke up itching my finger which had become inflamed..
I'm allergic to GLUTEN and LACTOSE and I haven't ingested anything containing these for 12 yrs now ( I got diagnosed at 22)... My symptoms for these started when I was 18, 3 years after I had my tonsils removed, previously I had lived on penicilon and antibiotics ( I feel like the poison in my body from the food I ate came out through my tonsils and then after they were removed they came out in other ways). the symptoms were the same on the fingers, but I also suffered from hives and boils on the face and neck, asthma, eczema on my eyelids..
Has anyone got any thoughts why I'm reacting to BSM now?
I would really love to be able to take it again..

After using blackstrap molasses for a while, 2 tablespoons, one in the morning and one in the evening, i have noticed some small red circles appear on my back. after i stopped the usage the circles faded away. when i started taking it again, the circles returned.
I took some chromium and vanadium since I eat a lot of sweets. A side effect was I had to keep waking up in the night to urinate and was very thirsty. I just didn't feel right either. After I ate somethign and got moving around I was ok. Needless to say, I stopped the chromium and vanadium and the side effect stopped. I know diabetics can get increased urination and thirst. Why did taking these substances seem to bring on a diabetic symptom? Did I not drink enough water to flsuh toxins? Is this just a cleaning or better to stop?
My husband has many heart heath issues icluding high blood pressure. Very high cholesterol and an irregular heart beat. He cannot take statins. We also know the dangers of these drugs. I started him on 150 mg of Q10. He was up all night urinating. He also had a bad headache from dehydration. I lowered the dose to 30 mg. I have tried to increase the dose to 60mg but he gets the same problems. Can anyone shed any light as to why this should be. Many thanks Christine

Thank you for your response. The reason I wanted use q10 was to lower his blood pressure. Apple cider is not helping with this. I dont want the doctors to try and make him take meds. It is a worry because he has to stents in his arteries due to narrowing. At that time his cholesterol was 10.5. It is now around 7. I keep trying different things to help. I may look into hawthorn berry , niacin etc.
Recently, I did a clay colon cleanse that recommended a follow-up colon hydrotherapy session. Toward the end of the hydrotherapy session, I had intense pain in my upper left abdominal area, as if there was a blockage of some kind, and once the clay was past that area the pain subsided.
I want to know if anyone has had the same experience during a hydrotherapy session and what it might be and what can be done? I have not had any professional diagnosis. I am thinking it may be either some kind of polyp, parasite or tumor. Thank you.
I have been oil pulling and using ACV with b/s for the past two weeks. I feel good, however, I am more constipated. I noticed when I take dark molasses it helps me. Has anyone had this reaction and if so, what did you do to remedy this?
I took 2 mg copper supplement to reverse grey hair and I feel nauseous. Google search said its a sign of too much copper or lack or zinc so too much copper or body can't handle copper because of some disorder like Wilson's Disease. What can I do to get copper to turn hair color back but not get sick? I didn't realize too much copper can hurt the liver. I didn't take much so maybe I need zinc then I can take the copper again? Its some good brand chelated copper. If my sick is not due to a zinc deficiency can I make liver stronger somehow? I must have copper deficiency because of all grey hair.

I had a non-healing boil and started taking 1/4 tsp of powdered turmeric in a glass of water a couple of times a day for a couple of days. I have taken turmeric in the past without a problem. Today I tried cream of tartar instead (same dosing). After the second dose, eight hours apart, my stomach grumbled and I had bad racing heart, anxiety, and had runny stools. I think it was the cream of tartar and I was surprised because I didn't think it had much side effects (but I know things can affect people differently). I heard it is an "acid salt" and wonder if it is because I am a little sodium sensitive. The racing heart happens if I take baking soda alone too but is fine if I take it with apple cider vinegar or lemon/lime juice, maybe because the natural potassium balances the salt out? Anyways high anxiety is an uncomfortable feeling.
Cream of Tartar
I was able to find some info on cream of tartar side effects. I was reading an old Ted post that said autistic and people high in candida already have high levels of tartaric acid and this can cause side effects. He recommended other forms of potassium. He said something about malic acid (apple cider vinegar) can be a kind of antidote to the side effects. Those high in tartaric may be low in malates.
I also read him in an old post of his that some people who are high in nitrates might have trouble taking higher doses of potassium. Ted said to stop eating processed meats, like processed meats (delimeats, hotdogs, etc) and that magnesium chloride or hydrochloric acid supplements may help.
I saw high nitrates in animals they treated them with intravenous injections of methylene blue
Better But With Side Effects
I used DMSO 1 tablespoon per day and after day 2 or 3, I believe that I was getting a rapid pulse (heartbeat for 4-6 hours) and also some stomach pain and an irritated bowel.
Is this normal, did others get this? I used the DMSO treatment for a skin condition (SC). It worked very very well.
I found that 1/2 teaspoon (large teaspoon) or 1 teaspoon per day were effective dosages. Any answers please?
Hi I have been trying out an Epsom Salt remedy for my wifes bladder pain and carpal tunnel with some success. The dose was a quarter of a teaspoon of Epsom Salts 3 times a day plus using a 20% mix with water as a body spray. The method was working, however my wife started getting progressively worse hot flushes(up to every half hour), night sweats and headaches after a week. We have had to stop this treatment and all symptoms caused have gone in 4 days. I believe it was the sulphur content causing this problem (I wonder if MSM would be the same). I have sent off for some magnesium chloride and will try that as I believe this remedy was working well.

My 7 year old son has developed a small lump in one of his breasts and pubic hair on his testicles. He is thin and does not eat soy and eats organic meat and chicken. However he loves flax seed crackers and takes a flax oil supplement along with fish oil, co Q10 and a multi. (he has low level autisim and a ventriculir septil (sp??) deviation (a small hole in his heart).
As I have gotten closer to menopause, I have read that Flax oil is helpful to women wanting to balance their hormones. Could the flax oil be causing early puberty in my son? Any ideas on how to slow this down??? I have taken him off all flax!
