This site is wonderful and I'm grateful for you all guys who help keep it alive. We should spread the word about how we can cure a lot of ailments with simple methods. The pharmaceutical industry is all about money and are not always for real help or real health!!
After doing some research on the internet I decided to try grapefruit seed extract. I read that it can do many wonders and I was eager to try it after reading all those "wonders". I'm surprised that this website doesn't mention this natural remedy yet. You can google it and read a lot of good things about it!
For many years whenever I washed my teeth I had bleeding gums and one of my front teeth was very sensitive because of the receding gums. Also I noticed that some of my teeth started to become loose! I'm only 36 years old and want my teeth to last a lifetime. For 3 months now I put just one drop of grapefruit seed extract on the toothpaste before brushing me teeth and believe me or not from the very first brush of this kind I have absolutely no bleeding of the gums at all! What's more, my gums look and feel healthy, no sensitive tooth and no moving tooth either! On top of this, in the morning when I get up my breath still feels fresh because of that one drop of grapefruit seed extract that I put on my toothpaste the previous evening.
I have tried many uses of this wonder product and have had very good results. Namely, my 4-year old boy came home from nursery with itchy and red toes, scaling skin between the toes. I guess it was a fungus infection. They often play around barefeet and therefore prone to infections between the toes. I put one drop of grapefruit seed extract into a bit of the usual nappy cream that I've been using for my two young children - and mixed it well. Then applied the cream generously between and around all his toes. The itchiness immediately subsided and the skin gradually healed and did not cause any complaints after that. I used the cream mixed with the grapefruit seed extract once a day, in the evening, after bath, for 4 days. My son's friend who goes to the same nursery had similar complaints and they had several visits to the doctor and had some expensive creams prescribed to cure his ailment. It was a fungus according to the doctor.
And that reminds me, I had nail fungus a year ago when I didn't know about grapefruit seed extract. My big toe was yellow and it even had a bit of black "line" in it. It did not cause concern only aesthetically but I knew it could get worse. I soaked my feet in water mixed with white vinegar for several days. I noticed that when my toe was growing it was of the healthy pinkish colour, and gradually the yellow colour and the black spot was gone. It took several months though as nail on the toe grow very slowly. I still soak my feet in vinegar water after using a public pool as a preventive measure.
I heard that grapefruit seed extract can equally well cure fungus of the toes. Also, some people recommend it to use it for headlice. Headlice can occur in schools and kids bring it home. Its cure is expensive and the shampoo applied to kill the lice is very toxic. Just one drop of grapefruit seed extract in the usual shampoo and voila - headlice gone. This is not my own experience though but I think it is worth a try!

Better But With Side Effects
I had a very bad case of Candida last winter. It was extremely harsh. My crotch and butt were itchy and sometimes burned, my mood was agitated, I was suffering from insomnia. To finally get rid of the ailment, I went on a sugar-free diet and took some medication from my doctor. This was great. It killed all the candida within days. My problem then became a severe flu, as my body was not getting rid of the dead candida fast enough. My body was basically experiencing toxic shock. I took tons of fiber, drank gallons of water over several days. This finally made me feel better. Now, I just take Grapefruit seed extract in water every few days to keep the candida at bay. It is very effective at eliminating candida after it has set in as well, but you should take a diuretic to get the dead candida out of you. For candida, take 5-6 drops of GSE in 20oz of water. Drink in one sitting. Do this once each day for 3 days. May cause heartburn. If so, water down the dosage or use fewer drops (3-4).

Grapefruit seed extract cured the flu
I felt the flu coming on pretty bad on Saturday around 2pm. I knew I needed to take something right away to catch it quickly. I took 15 drops of GSE in 4 oz of orange juice that evening. By then I had a fever and diarrhea. 1/2 hour later I took about 1 tsp. of ACV in 8oz h2o and went to bed at 8pm. I woke up at 2am and 8 with diarrhea, when I woke up at 2pm felt much better! Took another 15 drops GSE in 4 oz OJ and more ACV in h2o. Was symptom free from that time on! Took another round of GSE next morning to be safe!
I want to share with you a discovery that has changed my life. A few years ago I realized that after brushing when I rinsed with one drop of grapefruit seed extract (must have citricidal in the ingredient list) and a mouth full of water that all the pain in my mouth went away, my gums stopped bleeding and I never had morning breath. When I ran out of the extract I ordered more and noticed right away that the product tasted different and in a few weeks all my pain and issues returned, I went online and low and behold everyone was complaining that they had reformulated it and it was no longer effective.
Lucky for me, I found that the old formula was still available in a maximum strength version with the all important godlike ingredient citricidal in the product. I ordered it right away and was relieved to find my teeth pain went away again. I think this is hands down the best product you can get for tooth pain and dental health in general. I've spread the word to family and friends and they all have had the same results that I have discovered. I have not had to have a single cavity filled in three years now and that is an incredible change for me considering how things had been before this discovery. If I eat a lot of sugary snacks and start having pain again I have to completely cut out all sugar, sometimes I have to rinse with the extract three times a day for a few days to a week before I get control of the pain again but miraculously it always works.
If you add glycerin free tea tree oil toothpaste and a few drops of trace minerals to your toothpaste or mouthwash and your bottled water, stop eating sugar and grains and eat lots of fresh alkalizing fruits like kiwis and grapefruits and fresh vegetables and quality protein your teeth will start to remineralize and those little cavities will fill in. But in the meantime even if you have some gnarly cavities the extract seems to completely kill all the bacteria in the mouth that is causing the pain in those sensitive areas.
Warning, always rinse with this highly potent extract after brushing and never before and never use it on your toothbrush as it is highly acidic and could temporarily soften teeth enamel for 30 minutes or even longer after use and always only use one drop in a mouthful of water or it will burn a little on your tongue etc.
This might be the best kept secret in dental care, I have tried everything, salt rinses, clove oil etc. Nothing compares to the instant relief that I get from this extract. My mouth has that acidic feeling, stretched out pain in my cheeks like I've just blown up ten balloons sometimes. And my whole mouth tingles and feels absolutely perfect for many hours, even waking up in the morning with no morning breath. I also do oil pulling with olive oil which I believe is the most soothing of oils and also the most anti bacterial and is the best choice for oil pulling, add a few drops of trace mineral drops to the oil to help remineralize, for the first time in my life I think I may never have to have a tooth filled again.
After suffering with chronic dental issues my whole life, this is saying a lot. Unfortunately grapefruit seed extract is controversial, some claim that it is not a natural supplement at all and that the citricidal is a strange bi product of the processing of the seeds and that it is closer to a medicine that should be regulated, this is probably the reason that it has been reformulated unfortunately making the new formula sadly not effective. I trust my gut on this one. If you are lucky enough to have found this review, do yourself a favor and order yourself some of this stuff and spread the word. Tooth pain is one of the worst things humans experience in this existence, lets spread the love and share this remedy with everyone we know.
Some say all disease starts in the mouth, much love to you all and I hope you have many days of good health ahead of you.
Diverticulitis and acid reflux: I want to thank each and every person that gave their experience on GSE and diverticulitis. My first attack was in 2009 terrible experience, from being a healthy and in good shape 60 yr. old, after this I couldn't even have a normal life. In 2010 had 5 attacks:3 were hospitalizations and 2 more attacks, since I knew the routine I asked dr's I would do treatment at home, 5 times taking terrible antibiotics and terrible pain. That's when Surgeon talked about having to have surgery. Then in December of that same year, read this site - sent from heaven- and even though skeptic about it sent for GSE liquid. Followed the 3 x a day 15 drops for 1 week. Pain and symptoms completely went away. Have not even seen a Dr. for this condition ever since. At the first sign of the discomfort I take 12-15 drops once a day for three, four or five days and that's it. It is worth every cent paid for. I also use the honey and vinegar every day- has helped me with my acid reflux-this plus eating papaya fruit, there is no need for me to take the "protonix" pill that I was prescribed and told that I had to have for the rest of my life. Thankful also to earth clinic and wishing the best to all, and thanking you dearly. God Bles each and one of you.
In the past I've been troubled with Diverticulitis to the point I had to take anitbiotics. This would happen about every 3 to 4 months. I started taking Grapefruit Seed Extract when I'd feel an attack coming on. I would take 12 drops in a glass of water 4 times a day. After about 4 days the pain would subside. Then after several months I would have another attack and do the same. I finally got smart, I take 12 drops (GSE) in a glass of water each and every night with out fail. I am now free from the attacks and when I do feel like an attack is coming on I do the 12 drops (GSE) twice a day and soon go back to just once a day. I hope this helps others that are bothered with this condition, it has made a big difference in my life. I don't like to take antibotics. I have just found this web site and am really interested in reading about all the different cures and remedies. I'm going to try several of those mentioned.

I discovered this site a few days ago. I have been impressed. Yesterday I awoke with dark rings around my eyes, fever and sore muscles. The flu was coming on STRONG. I started a new job today too. I went straight to your site and read the grapefruit seed extract cure. They should change the name to bitter fruit, but it has worked. It's awful but within an hour I felt 80% better. By evening I felt 98% better. I can tell it is still there, in hiding, so I will do it 2-3 days like it is suggested. It now feels like that day after your sick which is great because I was really going to be sick. I could tell. Jobs great too. Thanks!
I absolutely hate being sick and getting the flu, like I'm sure everyone does. But, I have found something that really helps. GSE, Grapefruit Seed Extract which can be bought at supplement and health stores, really helps boost my immune system. I drop 13 drops in a small glass of orange juice three to four times a day when I start feeling and sick and by the next morning I feel 100% better.
i have recently stumbled apon the most fantastic cure all!!!!!! grapefruit seed extract has served as a mirical cure for my double whammy fungal infection which then spawned impetigo! i had been back to the quack 3 times prescribed antibiotics which 1/2 worked but then the sores spread! i was devistated as they were set to take over my whole face! then fate stepped in and handed me a little bottle of GSE whithin 3 days the impetigo was peeling away to reveal beautifull healthy skin underneath and after just 8 days my face was compltetly clear and even the annoying hormonal breakouts i get on the sides of my chin have shown dramatic healing and i mean dramatic! I took GSE internally and i wash my face with it morning and night and put a couple of drops in almond oil as a moisteriser.

Grapefruit seed extract is NOT entirely natural. There's a hidden ingredient that is toxic...Before balking and saying I'm wrong, look it up for yourself. Other forums are talking about it.
Just google "grapefruit seed extract is not natural it is toxic" to find the evidence you need. Most people who find this out stop using it immediately.
Hi, I was wondering if pure essential oil has the same benefits as grapefruit seed extract if not what has it compared to the extract please? Thanks
GSE, grapefruit seed extract is very bitter. The drops can be put in small empty capsules boughten from most any health store. Great solution.
I know that there are some scary articles on the internet about grapefuit seed exctract. Difficult to know who is telling the truth! Sometimes sites demonize other supplements only so that they sell their own. As I said here before I bought it after talking to the lady in the pharmacy who told me that a friend of hers, a biologist, told her that if she was going to a deserted island and could take only one item she would take GSE. This is the second bottle I bought, always in the pharmacy. This one says that it is a source of bioflavonoids and Vitamin C. It also says that it is of natural origin. The contents are vegetable glycerin, water, Vitamin C and GSE. The bad part is that GSE is the last ingredient, meaning that it has more glycerin and water than GSE. To be honest one has no way of knowing who is right and who is wrong!

A lot of people seem to use grapefruit seed extract with good results but now, as I was thinking of trying it I found this article on the Internet: http://www.terressentials.com/truthaboutgse.html. What do you think? Is there any truth in this and shouldn't one use it? I have no idea as I have never come across it!
