Better But With Side Effects
It has taken forever to come to learn that taking magnesium, regardless of what form, be it glycinate, gluconate, oxide, taurinate, etc. etc. will cause my mouth to burn and my tongue to swell. When I discontinue it, it takes a few days but it stops. It took me years to make this connection. Ted, could you possibly explain this? I would love to learn more about why this happens. For the record, I test high aldosterone/renin ratio and my bicarb is always significantly higher than chloride, though within normal range on tests. My understanding is aldo increases uptake of salt and calcium, my guess which stems from the aldo. Thought I would share the magnesium information as it pertains to me. I wish I would have read a review that would have got me to stop taking magnesium 5 years ago. Taking minerals without the whole group, ie a multi vitamin increases it potential for me also. Hope this helps someone clue in on the magnesium if they are regular uses for constipation, etc. Because that was why I started using it. I must say that I had debilitating menstral migraines and the magnesium stopped those, so double edge sword for me.

I started with 1500mg once a day. Empty stomach in the morning.
1-Nausea (not too bad) 15 minutes after
2-Sleeplessness and feeling some "electricity" or my "blood running" inside my body .
3- My stomach making a lot of noise. but I think now it happen after I ate bread.
Now I am taking 3 pills a day 4500mg and sleep like a baby and no more nauseas

For the past two weeks I have been drinking the borax, shilajit (fulvic acid), L-gutamine, and apple cidar vinegar in a 32 oz glass of water throughout the day. Hoping to draw out heavy metals and fluoride, and the l-glutamine for yeast. 4 days on, 3 days off as was suggested on here.
The third day of the second week I had tremendous anxiety. Crying, tremendous worry, racing thoughts. I had to stay home from work because my heart was racing so much. Anyone who has had anxiety knows the feeling of all the muscles being tight, yet feeling like electricity shooting through them.
Could this be a symptom of detox????
After reading a number of posts concerning side effects experienced from taking ACV, baking soda, BSM, honey, borax, etc. I am amazed that so many people would ask, "Is this normal?" NO it isn't! If it makes you sick or gives you a rash, headaches, heart palpitations, or whatever, it is NOT normal and you shouldn't be using it, no matter how healthy it's supposed to be or how good it makes other people feel. Please listen to what your body is trying to tell you instead of relying on all the hype.
Recently I have gotten a couple of small cuts or nicks. Very small. They should have bled a bit but stopped after a minute of pressure, but they didn't. It took a few minutes with a tightly wrapped bandage. -Which got soaked. It wasn't frightening, as I said they were small nicks. But I wonder what if I really got hurt.
What I want to know is, is something ,or a combination of things, that I am taking making my blood thinner? Here is a list of what I take daily.
2 tsp dietary supplement oil
2 caps mineral dietary supplement
2 Tbs tea dietary supplement
1 Tbs raw local honey
2 Tbs ACV
1 Tbs coconut oil
1 Tbs black strap molasses
1/4 tsp turmeric
1/4 tsp cayenne
1/4 tsp cinnamon
I have been OP for about a month in am for 20 minutes. My gums and pockets are better! Many 3s are now 2s and gums are not bleeding during the cleaning. I also have been doing ACV for Acid Reflux and Molasses for anti-aging (I am 56) and general well being. The ACV gave me burning tongue and very burning throat. I did the BS remedy and now do the EC receipe of 2 TBL ACV, 1 TBL Molasses in hot water w/1/8 tsp of BS. I add the turmeric and cayenne pepper as well.
My liver enzymes are elevated for the 1st time ever and the doctor seemed concerned and I have to retest in 3 weeks. I read in one of Ted's comments that some of the oil in OP settles in the liver. Has any one experienced elevated liver levels or heard of this? Not sure if Ted's comment is a bad thing or not. Thank you EC for this site and to all that contribute.
EC: OP = Oil Pulling
ACV = Apple Cider Vinegar
BS = Baking Soda
I have been using _____'s acv with 1/4 tsp for the past 4 months daily along with 1/4 tsp of sea salt in a liter of water daily, the borax treatment 1/8 tsp 4-5 days out of the week, 1 tblsp of bsm daily, was doing vco daily and I have gained over 7 pounds. I really felt energized when I first started the remedies now I feel blah again. I noticed my sugar cravings are almost gone. I went through lots of stress the Nov. Dec. months but still did the remedies.
I tried the cayenne pepper tea. I recently started using lecithin due to high liver enzymes, and my blood sugar has been high in the past. what am i doing wrong? I am post menopausal and taking 1mg of estrodial with osteopenia (almost osteoporosis) my blood work showed hdl cholesterol low-37 LDL-187, low vit D, low B12. Any one else experiencing weight gain and just feeling blah? Am I doing too many remedies at the same time? the wrong remedies?
EC: BSM = Blackstrap Molasses
VCO = Virgin Coconut Oil
Ted, I have tried OP 4 yrs ago and quit because after one month I suffered dramatic hair loss. I followed all directions to the T, I was a little bit down in the dumps and thought I could correct this situation my self, so I started taking food grade ( diluted of course ) Hydrogen Peroxide as per recomendations ( followed all directions ) and after a month my eyesight started to get very blurry and has gotten a little better but I now need to wear bifocals. I am just now feeling like asking some questions if I can change my situation for the better. Please help? Has some bacteria gotten dislodged and settled in my scalp and behind the eyes?
I've been taking olive leaf for about 12 days now. A couple of days ago I broke out with bumps (they look like chicken pox bumps) is this natural or is it an allergic reaction?
Better But With Side Effects
Heya Earthclinic, when I take probiotics my sweat smells like bread dough or yeasty. And when I shower and stop the probiotics the smell is gone. Is this die off of candida?
ok just started taking psyllium husks capsules yesterday, 2 an hour before each meal, have spent today in bed with terrible cramps, diarrhoea, and now vomiting, thought it was a gastric bug, but not sure after reading some posts here, drank plenty of water, does anyone recommend I continue with it?

Hello, at about age 30, I began having severe gastrointestinal distress from eating lettuce on anything, even if there was lettuce snuck inside a sandwich or a burrito. It took me a while to isolate what was causing the problem. It happens with all raw green substances (all lettuce, romaine, alfalfa sprouts, anything raw and green). However, I can still eat celery & bell peppers. What occurs is......... I get these huge stabbing, painful cramps in my stomach/intestines that is the worst pain........ Then pretty soon thereafter, I get the worst diarrhea ever, painful, and it goes on for hours, until whatever green was in there is out. (Sorry to be so graphic, but it's awful........... ). Now, every time I look at raw greens, I shudder, and I'm very vigilant about making sure no one puts raw greens on anything of mine! I told a gastroenterologist about this, and I don't remember if he had a real "explanation" for it.
I do have Irritable Bowel Syndrome. I don't remember if he said that this raw green intolerance is part of the IBS. However, I cannot find anyone else in which this happens. It seems very rare. And, I don't really know how to "cure" it. The gastroenterologist didn't really seem to help. Perhaps I should try a more naturopathic gastroenterologist? They could possibly recommend digestive enzymes? Because, the idea of me slowly introducing raw greens into my diet until I tolerate them........ It just frightens me, the pain is so bad when I eat them. But, I think I might have to "risk it" and plan to re-introduce myself to greens when I have a few days off of work, because it takes a lot out of me, I'm drained after these digestive attacks. Thank you for any input. I read on here a lot, but have never posted.

A warm Hello to Everyone! I am a full time student and heard so many good things about the benefit of Schizandra berry such as mental clarity, mental focus, sharpness and alertness. I bought it from a local Chinese store in my town and started taking it. Here is the funny parts: When I make a tea out of Schizendra berry and drink, I feel tired and need to go to sleep right away. If I take this berry at night, I can 13 or 14 hours of sleep. I wonder how people can take this instead of coffee in the morning. Thank, Sara
Can anyone explain why using sea salt as a mouth rinse has totally stripped my gums away. Where there was no issue before now I have some major gum recession going on, its not painful, just unsightly and a great concern. I'm stocking up on Vitamin C and eating well, but I'm nervous my only choice will be surgery. Any ideas?
Do not take sodium nitrite. it can kill you at it almost did me!
My mom has end stage renal disease with high bp and is diabetic. i came across this article and i took a very small dose 2mg of sodium nitrite to try it out before giving it to my mother. i took it at 4:30 am and i became delusional and psychotic in 1 hour time. my wife called 911 and in the emergency they administered methylene blue and this saved my life.
The doctor said that the sodium nitrite caused methemoglobenemia and my oxygen saturation was only 50% even with using a oxygen concentrator. i would have been dead in 3 hours or definitely brain dead if not for the emergency doctor. i am an educated guy. i am a dentist but still i got taken into this nonsense. it was also a very embarrassing situation. i hope this ted would try his remedies on himself before he posts these poisons as remedies as cures.
