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.

Vanadium Sulfate

I read one of Ted's posts about taking Vanadium Sulfate to help lower blood sugar... I have been taking 200 grams a day not milligrams, but GRAMS. Since I've been taking it, I have been so dizzy, lethargic and weak... I have absolutely no energy, am fatigued... Good thing is though, that my Insomnia is gone and I have been sleeping like a rock!!!!! DOG TIRED!!! I've stopped taking the Vanadium Sulfate a week ago, but still have this fatigue and weakness... How do I get rid of it?? It's almost like Vertigo, but not quite... Maybe Hypoglycemia.... Help!

Why on earth would you take 200 grams of anything? That's just crazy! I hope you got proper medical assistance for this?

Sometimes humans tend to think "well if a little is good, then I'll take a lot and that will be better" - well this is just not the case! Just because something is natural, doesn't mean it can't have serious side effects.

To Joyce from Dallas, Tx - if you want to lower your blood sugar - there are several natural ways you can do this without getting too much and hurting yourself. One way is cinnamon. They sell tablets of 1000 mg. now and you can take one with each meal to lower your blood sugar. I would not take more than that unless you were eating a large amount of carbs.

The second way is to use an herb called gymnemma. It is a great herb in that it helps restore your pancreas. You can also take two to three a day safely.

The Last way you can lower your sugar naturally - besides exercise - is to eat a low carb - moderate protein diet.

BUT - the CAUTION is: Don't Over-do on the supplements. (You'll make yourself sicker) ~ AND - IF you are using Insulin - you Must keep tabs on your blood sugar - because these supplements will really bring your sugar DOWN pretty rapidly.

As for what you have now - you can drink hot lemonade two to three times a day for a couple of days and see if it will re-balance your body. It ususally works to clear you of anything that is upsetting your body. Do Not use Honey to sweeten it as it might cause you diarrhea. Good luck!

Gymnema has tendency to raise blood pressure, So those with HBP should take caution. JdparkUSA

I know this is old; but for anyone reading this: Ted did NOT recommend taking 200 grams of sodium vanadate. nor did he recommend taking it DAILY.

see here:

He simply outlines taking 200mg (MILLIGRAMS, NOT GRAMS) of vanadium compound ONCE in a liter of drinking water, drank throughout the day, but it's dissolved with a capful of 3% peroxide added to the water first & shaken- and it has a lingering effect, keeping blood sugar balanced.

If I had poisoned myself with vanadium, I would immediately take some liposomal EDTA I got from my MD/ND according to the label (1/2 tsp under tongue for 30 sec on empty stomach, swallowed, no food for 10 minutes, replenish zinc with supplements later.

OR I would take a tablespoon of bentonite clay stirred in a whole cup of water.

OR I would take 2 crystals of sodium thiosulfate dissolved in a cup of water.

These are my emergency acute heavy metal poison remedies.

Long term poisonings are treated more gently with cilantro and spirulina / chlorella taken daily at 1/4 tsp each 3 times a day

Be more responsible with how you treat your body, and READ posts very CAREFULLY.

Sorry for your issues, but I will not see anyone spreading misinformation about Ted on my watch.
