ORH here,,,,,,,, meditating and thinking trouble times. I bought a freeze dyer a few years ago and have never used it. We know how to preserve stuff and lost interest. Now my mine is wandering due to our times. What if you just partially dehydrate..... say some peas, and then finish them off with the freeze dryer? Would that work? I have searched the net and got no clue. All can see that times are interesting. I am pragmatic and have what it takes to survive as most of you can imagine if you have followed me over the years. What is blowing my mind is that rural land is selling like hot cakes in our area. City slickers are coming by the boat loads. Problem is they still have the same mind set and that ain't good. Guess life is going to get interesting in our parts too. Think they are going to get their comeuppance and learn a thing or two. ====ORH===.
Hello Earth Clinic Team - the "Font of all Knowledge"!,
I could not find anything on Iron Deficiency on the Web Site but I may have been looking in the wrong place? Can you remind me of the technical name please. I used to recommend a liquid product in a bottle (over here) that went by the name of "Flurodix" or possibly "Flurodex" maybe??
Would love to get some information on this condition if it is out there.
"Popeye the Sailor Man" recommenced copious quantities of Spinach - remember him?
EC: Hi Michael!
One of the best things about Earth Clinic is the fact that saving one's own actual LIFE is so common that it's just "business as usual" and "no big deal" - so, on that note, let's take a minute to whoop and holler and high five each other!
WOOHOO!!! We ROCK!!!
I noticed your CoronaVirus page was taken down:
Did the FDA or someone else send you a cease and desist? Some things on that page helped manage my symptoms (I still have the virus) and was wondering if it's gone for good?
EC: Hi Mark,
No, it's not gone. It's here.
Sorry, I forgot to put a redirect on the url when we shift back to the old site yesterday evening. Now it's been redirected to the new url (above).
Note: We still have to move several hundred posts over to the coronavirus section from the old site and that should hopefully happen this weekend. If there's specific remedy/post you need from that section, let us know and we'll add it asap.
I am looking for remedies for CPPD or pseudogout. Not the same as uric acid caused gout.
All "gussied up" site now, but no search function yet? Very tricky to figure out how to post now, as well. Added subject line, but still says please enter subject.
Pseudogout may be mixed in with gout remedies. Or search the answers.earthclinic.com site.
Can you please explain what you mean by no search function yet? We have a search bar at the top of every page next to the logo.
If you mean search function in another area, please let us know. We've had a few complaints about a missing search feature, and can't quite figure out if people are missing the search bar at the top or something else.
P.S. If our EC community can add their thoughts and let us know what's missing on the site now, we'd really appreciate it and will fix it.
Folks, I think I need your help on this one please!!
Has anyone done a Doctoral Thesis or PhD (or had personal experience) of the following condition:-
I have heard that dark chocolate (as distinct from milk chocolate with a bit more sugar in it), can cause headaches/migraines - sometimes bad ones. But that is not my present concern. By the way, I prefer the slightly bitter taste of the darker variety (but NOT the really strong, cocoa-content type).
Could the dark chocolate also cause muscle spasms / pain / stiffness as well as joint pain / stiffness / tendonitis etc?
Supposing one were to over-indulge by consuming a whole, thin bar of dark chocolate - what could be the consequences? Also, what are the factors at work - intestines, liver, kidney reactions etc - if known?
It is just that we have recently been hearing of the benefits of dark chocolate for one's health and I am wondering how much is too much and the bad consequences that are possible from over-indulging?
Everybody with a story to tell is encouraged to reply please!
Thanks a lot.
Michael from Down Under
ORH here,,,,,,,,,, Lord have mercy have I got confusion going here with our electrical co-op about dirty power. This is a health issue for certain. I am a Ch E from Ga Tech, but I an a novice as far as electricity is concerned. Don't turn me off, because this is about your pocketbook and your health. Dirty power gets to you on both counts. I am learning, but me and my co-op are fixing to to round and round. In the meantime, you need to see how this is affecting you. I promise you that you have the same problem. Dirty power increases your electric bill and affects your health and sleep. Hell, all this time, I thought Big Pharma was the bad guy. Hey, we have lots of bad guys. Waiting on a phone call from the VP and the longer it takes, the more they are talking. Funny how that works. They know I have worms and will cause them consternation. They know me. ====ORH====

Yikes, ok everyone, no more pissy/off-topic threads allowed on EC. Boundaries now returned to previous strict levels.
Please review our guidelines page if you need a reminder. But here's the list:
1. No mean or attacking posts allowed.
2. No conspiracy talk.
3. No religious language or urls to religious websites or videos.
4. No off-health subject posts (i.e., politics)
5. If someone asks for help, please stick to the subject. People are going off on tangents that have no relation to the post. If someone is dying of cancer and extremely vulnerable, please don't start a discussion in the same thread complaining about doctors (Yes, that happened recently).
Sorry, but we're going to delete posts from now on that do not adhere to our guidelines.
I received an email discussing the benefits of Melatonin for Fibromyalgia from Earth Clinic but I seem to have lost the email and cannot find any link or post on your website regarding it.
Can you help please.
EC: Hi Adrienne,
Here is Art's post on the subject!
ORH here, today me and my Tractor Driver have been married 60 years. We simple folk, so for our anniversary I gave her a massage and mineral bath once a week and will clean up my bathroom everyday. We will also go out for a meal once a week. Lord have mercy, what you have to do these days to get a good Tractor Driver. ATS ====ORH ====
Greetings Earth Clinic,
What to do when you have fallen outside and cannot get up?
Pray Children Pray. Also, If you have two at least half good knees get on them grab a pole and pull yourself up, because sometimes it is hard to find good help. Anyway that's what I had to do. I know that are a few deceptive people out and trying to harm others, but if the good team up surely good will come. If you not sure and are frightened then keep walking. But somehow I don't believe everyone is scared of their neighbor.
Let me go back a little, about five years ago, I saw a man on the ground up against the gate of City Hall on the Chambers Street side; it was about the middle of the day. He was in a seated position with some blood on the side of his face To me that did not seem usual, not at City Hall. However, people were just passing him by as if it was part of a movie or something. I had a big box in my hand for some reason or another busy like everyone else. But something said, this man needs help. I walked over to him and asked, "Do you want an ambulance?" He answered yes. I called 911, and 911 said, we don't pick up people off the street anymore. I said, but this man has a family!! I had never seen the man in my life. The worker said, "He does?" I answered yes, everybody has a family. He said "okay we'll come will you be there," I said no I have a big box to deliver.
Long story short, I took care of my business which was only a few blocks from there, then jumped on the bus that goes back down that block. The ambulance workers were taking the man into the ambulance. I did not take a memory note of the man's face but I remembered his green jacket. A couple of weeks later I saw him back at City Hall examining the gates as if he were thinking, " how did this gate hit me?" The thought tickled me but I was glad to see that he was well.
A few days ago, it was my turn to fall. I was trying to catch my cousin's attention who was on the other side of that wide street. It looked like I was about to get the green light, so I stepped off of the curb. Then I noticed one more car trying to make the light. So I stepped back, the heel of my shoe hit the curb. And I went down hard, boom! I heard a scream, but I was still alive. I was at the corner, but it was one of those corners with the yard wide open space and somehow instead of stepping back into the space I hit the curb.
Yes, somebody screamed, but nobody came to help me up. Thank God, somehow I ended up sitting on the edge of the sidewalk with my feet in that crossing space. I had the breath know out of me for a moment or two, and could not stand yet. And people just kept walking past me on the crosswalk. No one asked if I wanted an ambulance or if I were ok. So I decided to sit there and smile since didn't know how I was going to get up. I called to my cousin one more time. So that he would not go in the wrong direction. He heard me that time as I still sat on the ground. He had his father with him who was in a wheelchair. So I knew I had to get up now. I looked behind me and saw a light pole. My pocketbook was still on the ground. I didn't care at the moment. I needed both hands to get up. I pulled myself up with the help of the pole. If you know other methods to get off the ground from a fall, please share.
Ooh and I am sure you guessed, my hand that I fell on began to swell. But it was still a great day after all was said and done, you see I have a few people who would not have been very happy if I had left them suddenly.
For your copy and pasting issues...
When you go to copy and paste, you need to be next to the blinking cursor and then right click your mouse or use ctr+c to copy and ctrl+v to paste. If on a Mac, use command+c to copy highlighted url and command+v to paste.
See if that works.
Positive thoughts and actions to heal hurts,
You may have heard that a merry heart or a good laugh is like a medicine, it can heal. I want to tip you that showing love or that you care can give life too.
Some people give up on life because the love they gave was not returned. I want to encourage you to take that good that you wanted to pour out on that individual and love a hurting world of people back to health.
You have heard that hurt people, hurt people, I want to add that sometimes hurt people hurt themselves too.
We have to make up our minds not to say negative words about ourselves or others.
We must realize how important our love, wisdom, and smiles are to others.
When I was young I remembered feeling rejected by a group I wanted to be a part of.
The hurt was so bad I would actually go down a list of who nobody loves you were. My thoughts would say, your mama doesn't love you, your daddy don't love you, your sisters don't love you, your brother doesn't love you. Then one day I added God doesn't even love. That ended that it, the Lord spoke to my heart to say, Never say that again, because he has proven his love by sending his Son.
I said all that to say stop repeating negative words about you. What you say about you should give life and energy to you.
You are beautiful!
You are so lovable,
You are so kind,
You always think of others,
I love your smile, it makes me want to smile.
The world needs more people like you.
This is just a comment that may help some people regarding question(s) they may have. I read that a member was asking where to purchase Castor oil. All anyone has to do is Google their question or use yahoo and enter any question: where can I purchase castor oil. (Type in your zip code) that's it. How far away is the moon? What country has world's most Beautiful Women? How can I make extra money? That's all you have to do.
Testing those challenged limbs may surprise you one day.
When I was a little girl about 4, I had a folding chair. One day I opened my chair to sit in it. It was not fully hooked. I sat on it with my hand holding the seat and the chair collapsed chopping off a small piece of my index finger (pointer finger). I do no remember how long I wore a cast, all I know is when they took it off I never used my index finger again for a few years. For some reason or other my mother decided to challenge me one day when she saw me writing with the finger pointed out as usual. She asked, "Jewel, (Nickname) why don't you use that finger?" I answered, "I can't mommy." She said, "Try." So I tried. And to my amazement my finger worked. It could bend, it could write. "WOW" Mothers come up with the greatest ideas, Try!
You never know what you can do unless you try and try again.
