Hi, I started taking boron 3mg capsules twice a day approximately a month ago for generalised arthritis. All my joints are painful. The boron did appear to help but unfortunately, I have developed this frequent burping/belching and also not passing urine as well as I did. Is this a known side effect?
Can anyone give me advice? I stopped taking the boron about a week ago and burping has almost gone and passing urine much better, so I know it is definitely the boron that is doing it.
I want to restart but not sure what to do.
I'm taking the recommended daily boron... it seems to be bringing on tooth pain. Could it be clearing bacteria? is it detoxing?
Is there likely to be an initial detox effect with borax compared with boron? The Herx...(something or other) effect? I started taking boron supplements (3mg capsule x 1 daily) 5 days ago for arthritis of knees, and my pain level has immediately jumped from a copeable 3 - 4 on my ricktar scale previously to a horrendous 10/10+ and perhaps even tripled to the point I can hardly walk now, with research advising that this can last for 1-3 months! I just can't take any more pain and am just about ready to give up. Some feedback please?
I took boron for a couple of months but every time I came of it I had stomach ache, anxiety & sadness. Awful. Stopped it 2 days ago & would never take again.
Hello~ I love your site and felt an immediate connection to trying Boron for my Perioral Dermatitis yesterday when I read about it. I took 2 3mg capsules yesterday and today and also bought Neem oil, which I LOVE, (felt and saw immediate positive results), and also a probiotic. This afternoon I have been nauseaus and had a terrible headache and am curious if this is the Boron, am I taking too much, or possibly the "die off", I've read about? Also, how long should I take Boron and do you think I'll be nauseus everyday I take it?
Thanks so much!!!! Carri
