  Re: Using Progesterone
Sat, 19 Apr 14 14:40:34 -0500

04/19/2014: Mama To Many from Tennessee: "Dear Loraine,

Here is my 2 cents on progesterone cream. I have used it with great results on and off over the last 10-12 years or so. (Mostly off. I have just used it as needed here and there.) I have not noticed any long term side effects. (Nor short term, for that matter.) It has helped with what I needed it for. (Regulating cycles when they were "off.") At the same time, I have read that "natural" progesterone is not really that natural. I know a naturopath who says she wouldn't touch it with rubber gloves. Rachel Weaver, an herbalist whom I have learned much from, recommends it when all else has failed. She considers it to be a "big gun" and not to be used carelessly. Personally, I am comfortable using it when my other options are not working.

Have you tried Evening Primrose Oil or any of the herbs that are commonly recommended during menopause? (i.e. Black Cohosh, Vitex, Damiana, etc?) I know there are some herbal formulas out there for this season of life. However, I am just starting to learn about it myself (I am 47.) so I don't have any hard and fast recommendations. Plus, it seems that everyone is different so there is not likely a one size fits all solution.

Hope I haven't muddied the waters worse than they were....as I said, it is just my 2 cents. Do let us know what you try and what helps!

Rebounding for Lymphatic Flow

Also drinking more water throughout the day to flush the lymphs."

  Re: Dave's Experiment with Papaya
Sat, 19 Apr 14 13:38:08 -0500

04/19/2014: Dave from Fountain Inn, Sc: "Update on Papaya Experiment;

The Digestive Power of Papaya..

Bronchial "tickling" gone...

I've fought a lactose intolerance condition for over 30 years. If I eat/drink milk products I begin feeling a tickling sensation in my upper lungs area and what follows would be spasmodic coughing. If I eat too much red meat...the same response. It would seem then I developed a lactase (enzyme) insufficiency and a pepsin (enzyme) deficiency.

So I've been experimenting with the fruit Papaya and discovered that somehow if I consume Papaya I have no tickling in the bronchial when I eat the "forbidden" foods. (I'm OK if I eat/drink a "lactose" free milk or ice cream product OR if I take lactase digestive enzymes.

But I've reported to the EC community that I've conducted my own experiments....with me as the Guinea Pig. I have really PUSHED to see how far this phenomenon would work.

As one of EC's guru's...Bill from the Philippines... suggested; something else must be going on because the Papain enzyme in Papaya should only help with Protein metabolism. I agreed and so am amazed at the experiment's results.

This morning, for instance, I took half a Papaya and mixed with two small mangos. Added yogurt AND whole milk cream (whipping cream) and blended. I drank two cups of that marvelous ... lush...delicious concoction (not too sugary) but definitely real trouble for me because of all the "milk" elements.

Waited for the inevitable coughing. Waited for the inevitable tickling deep in upper lungs (bronchial I suppose). NOTHING.

So...I took the remainder of the blend and added MORE cream and made...ice cream. An hour later ... gobbled that up. Still no tickling in lungs.

Now I may have tainted the experiment by adding Mango. But doubt it.

Just a good news update. More later."

04/19/2014: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand: "There is no standard for checking of blood viscosity and blood fats as opposed to cholesterol. But typically the blood sugar always rises up and these fungal and bacteria produces biofilm that are polysaccharides form of biofilm that limits blood circulation and causes a reflex responses caused by infection of myelin sheath. The treatment is not to eat high fat foods such as chocolate, cheese, bacon, ice cream and fried foods. The source of this fungal bacteria comes from small intestines due to eating too fast especially not chewing. Also result the vegetable cannot be digested as mammals lack enzymes to digest them. Anyway fulvic acid and humic acid taken every day for a month should stop some of this kicking. Avoid foods especially fructose and fruits and take light meals or not at all after 6 pm. Since my treatment is very advanced and more difficult to acquire i will stick to simple remedies for now.

May help improve if you take b8 inositol 4000 mg and b6 taken before eating 100 mg. It might also help if you take granulated lecithin one tablespoons a day, vitamin k and vitamin c.

04/19/2014: Julie from Daly City, California: "I read somewhere about a year ago that V**ks V***rub works to kill toenail fungus. Well one day I tried it. Then I forgot about it until one day when I went to cut my toe nails and I thought, wow, is it my imagination or did that one time of rubbing the v**ks into my toe nail really work because my nails looked slightly better. So I rubbed a little on again and again forgot about it for a bit and then remembered and took a closer look. My nails looked a little better. I rubbed it on them again and the next time I checked I swear my little toe nails were looking flatter and started to look less like the fat lump of a toenail they had become. The other nails started to look like they were flattening out too...meaning they weren't growing away from the nail bed so much because of the noticeable disappearance of that substance that grows under the nail associated with the fungus. I am not diligent about applying it probably everyday like I should but I was impressed with the results after only 3 applications done at least a month apart. I am going to try and be more consistent with applying it, hopefully everyday, and see what happens but I honestly saw a difference with just those three times and had seen no difference with other over the counter type applications. I will post my results, if any, in the future but as God as my witness, I swear, there is a difference. It doesn't seem to hurt the nail or the skin and it's worth a shot and hopefully I will be posting positive results sometime soon!"

  Re: Mycoplasma and Ureaplasma
Sat, 19 Apr 14 06:23:29 -0500

04/19/2014: Bill from San Fenando, Philippines: "Hi Dave...Great questions. Normally when you get oxalate problems these normally occur at the extremities of the body -- hands, feet and head. My major reason for using niacin like this is to ensure that the other nutrients recommended actually successfully reach the extremities via the blood. Niacin changes and thins the blood safely, opens the capillaries for better delivery of these nutrients to these extremities. Niacinamide does not do this because it is further along the cycle for eventual conversion to NADP or energy. In other words niacin is eventually converted to niacinamide in the energy cycle in the following way:

niacin -->.....--> niacinamide--> NADP(Nicotinamide Adenosine Diphosphate)

NADP then becomes part of the electron transport chain that supplies energy(ATP) throughout the cell itself. And that's as far as I'm going to go with it -- I prefer to keep it simple. But if you wish to be further confused -- then have a look at this complex explanation which will be like double Dutch to most people -- See this link.

Apart from the uniqueness of niacin's effect on blood, both niacin and niacinamide appear to have the same multitudinous benefits. It was also recently discovered from research (at the University of Minnesota within the last two years I think) that higher dose niaicinamide increases the strength and performance of the immune system by a factor of 2000. That, in itself, is reason enough to use higher dose niacin or niacinamide. It also cures depression, helps to cure heart disease, helps to cure alcoholics, cures schizophrenia, improves mood and raises energy levels. I've also read where Ted has also written that niacin/niacinamide kills both candida and mycoplasma too. Yet more reasons to use B3 at higher dose to keep yourself healthy. Dr Abram Hoffer took high dose niacin (up to 3 grams a day) for over 50 years and he died at age 93 after a long and productive life. Hoffer always said that supplementing higher dose niacin would extend your life and he's the proof.

So in answer to your questions:

Do you think niacinamide can play a role in eliminating mycoplasma or does your manifold recommendation cover the bases?

Absolutely -- because niacin/niacinamide, when they are taken in larger doses as Ted recommends, can raise up the strength of the immune system by a factor of 2000.

What is the role of calcium oxalate in the tangled problem?

Oxalate is hard to remove. But if you take EDTA then this will remove the heavy metals and excess calcium which helps to get rid of the calcium oxalate itself. Perhaps not the best answer in the world, but its sometimes difficult to follow Ted's thinking. And since Ted has said that niacin will kill mycoplasma -- I would believe him and simply leave it at that. I tried looking for evidence of such cures for mycoplasma several years ago, none to be found or all the important research has been deliberately hidden. Probably because the US Bio-Warfare Department has already had weaponized mycoplasma of its own for many years, so the last thing they really want is a cure for mycoplasma. There is much evidence for this. Lupus, Lyme and Morgellon's Disease always involve mycoplasma. SLE is difficult to diagnose, Lyme is not universally recognized as a disease and neither is Morgellon's recognized as a disease. All these diseases involve mycoplasma.

Out of interest, here's something from Ted (written way back in 2005) on another website talking about the cause of Morgellon's Disease and how it originated....And how he actually cured himself of this disease:

The solution came from secret military research which they have the cure. Apparently the cure is really simple, they used a 2%-3% DMSO mixed with 5% sodium perborate solution. They had to have the solution to protect biochemists like me from the infections.

It worked like magic on me when I got one. They kept it under the wraps because they need the "Morgellons" to spread the mycoplasma. Since you don't believe in conspiracy theory and I don't have a perfect memory, I will not go into details. There was another chemical they also used which I don't recall it now, but I guess it is not that important. However the simple insect not yet "officially" identified as I understand it they were trying to get it patented.

However it is great in carrying pathogens across a wide area of at least several thousand miles using birds as a carrier. This includes the bird flu, mycoplasma, chlamydia, SARS, etc.


Hmmm. The other "missing" ingredient? They MIGHT had an egg chitin dissolving solvent, EDTA and weak acetic acid, but I am not sure. Possibly a hormone disruptant
to cause sterilization that I suggested to my boss (he works for biowarfare research directly), but I don't know if he added my formulas or not. It was Neem oil if you want to know. Remember, the reason why I knew some of the formula was I was suggesting some improvements on those stuff to get rid of the critters faster. Since I got one myself 20+ years ago. It took about 3 days to rid of it and another week to prove that I don't infect my fellow co-workers.

If you know anyone in the military research, I am sure they improved my ancient formulas (which is fragmented) since my boss refused to tell me all the ingredients. We work in compartmentalization. So don't put your hopes up high on it. They might have
"evolved" or made a better breed those little creatures already, I am not sure. In the world of research, 20 year old research is TRULY ancient.

Ted

04/19/2014: Dave from Fountain Inn, Sc: "Hello Bill,

Re: Mycoplasma

I notice Ted from Bangkok also recommends large dose (5, 000 mg daily?) niacinamide. That post was from 2006 and focused on the calcium oxalate protection that mycoplasma effectuates. Ted's post I referred to is found in the permanent Mycoplasma "Ailments" Section in EC. YOUR post (the one I'm replying to) is eleven posts below his.

My question then is two fold: Do you think niacinamide can play a role in eliminating mycoplasma or does your manifold recommendation cover the bases? And question two; what is the role of calcium oxalate in the tangled problem? Ted focuses on that issue too talking about the use of disodium EDTA to keep oxalic acid from doing this and even talks of bicarbonates from entering the blood stream."

04/19/2014: Bill from San Fenando, Philippines: "Hi Holisticmom624...There is a remedy on EC that acts against mycoplasma. This is Borax Water as recommended by Ted from Bangkok. This entails adding 1/8 tsp of borax to one liter of water and drinking one liter of this borax water throughout the day. Take this remedy on a five days on and two days off continuous cycle. Borax kills mycoplasma, fungus and also supports bone formation. It balances hormones and also removes fluoride from the body as well as cures arthritis. Using non-scented 20 Mule Team Borax is fine for this remedy. I'm 63 y o and I've been using this borax water remedy regularly for about 8 years and can attest that it is effective.

If the borax remedy doesn't appeal to you, you could perhaps use a special compound herbal mix from raintreeformulas.com called Myco, which has been specifically designed to combat and eradicate all forms of bacteria as well as mycoplasma. This site also has other herbal formulations that target spirochete bacteria(called Spiro) and others that target fungal and viral problems as well. I know and have used this site in the past to get bulk herbs. This site only ever uses organic, sustainable herbs from the Amazon jungle region.

There are also other specific compound herbal mixes that you might also want to investigate. See the Nutramedix, Nutricology and Herb Pharm websites for more natural anti-microbial formulas that might help you. Another one is 1stchineseherbs.com. I don't know these sites so well (they don't ship to the Philippines where I live) but they seem to have have a good range of wildcrafted herbs, extracts etc. for sure.

See Ted from Bangkok's advice for Lupus here on EC.

Just to also finally mention that if you think that you have SLE then have a look at the current research on Dr William Shaw's website. His research has confirmed that problems such as Lupus, as well as many other autoimmune and mental problems, always seem to involve candida, various bacteria and possibly parasites and viruses as well. So don't think that you have just one infection -- mycoplasma -- you should perhaps be thinking multi-pathogen infections because of such a hugely lowered immune system capability. If you think that you have SLE then I would advise that you should perhaps use the following strategy:

* Broad spectrum or suitable individual herbal protocols that will specifically kill a wide range of bacteria, mycoplasma, fungus, viruses, parasites etc.

* Protocols that will remove biofilms. (eg Serrapeptase, Bromelain, Gum Turpentine).

* Alkalizing the body every day. See this link.

* Protocols that detox heavy metals and poisons.(eg Chlorella, Kelp, EDTA)

* Protocols that help build up the immune system.(eg Lugols Iodine)

* Liver/Kidney protection protocols.(eg Alpha Lipoic Acid, Selenium, Milk Thistle)

* Vegetarian Diet.

* Avoid antibiotics like the plague.

I use a strategy similar to the above against candida(also a multi-pathogen disease). See this link for more detailed explanations."

If I might add, concerning long-term care, only a few months after I began a brief career in nursing, an old school guy was the director of respiratory dept. at our little hometown hospital, and a good fella. Somehow some enthusiasm was generated to help some of the most severe bed-sore patience; and he began O2 (oxygen) topical administration w/ some improvement but not enough. He soon began applying heat lamp (light) therapy on the sores with much improvement. It may have been the combination of both treatments that resulted in some drastic improvement of people who had been yrs in bed and now getting up in chairs and becoming active; it was something almost miraculous and unfortunately not altogether welcomed by administrators."

04/18/2014: Dave from Fountain Inn, Sc: "Hello Nomonde:

I concur with what "Mama to Many" says and re emphasize her suggestion for using Colloidal Silver she mentioned. I'm betting it's a viral infection...chronic. In fact, surprised it hasn't migrated (assuming infection) to other organs because he's had it so long. Long lasting viruses/fungal infections do that. The way you described it...could very well be fungal. Great irritation like he is trying to attack it is how you described it. Very itchy...yes maybe fungal. So also check around his room...is there anything that could be a mold source? But you or the other members of the family aren't similarly infected; which mold would do...so probably not mold. That doesn't mean his infection is not fungal, however.

When I take Colloidal Silver, I sniff vigorously into both nostrils (one at a time! )...and if it's an infection, there will be a sharp "burning"...especially on the more infected side. IF it does burn and then drain after another two or three applications....and then if I am better able to breathe, then I know I'm infected. I know to repeat until the infection is gone. Sometimes, a stubborn infection I'll fight for two months. (MEAN ones.) But I don't give up and it stays localized in the sinus cavity. I also squirt my ear canals with an ear syringe of the CS to kill any of the virus/fungus in the canals or labyrinth...AND both the sinus irrigation and the ear irrigation gets the CS to all of the Eustachian Tubes also. Infections LOVE to hide out in the ETs.

If I determine I have a sinus infection...not merely allergy...I also DRINK the CS for a month to kill it in my system.

I use a high PPM CS...I make my own. (A test: If the CS you have won't knock out a sore throat when I gargle with it... it ain't worth a dime.)

Now last point: Even if he is allergic to some combo of foods, he could still be infected. The allergy would act to close up sinus cavity with inflammation and that lack of good circulation could produce virus/fungus growth.

Last point: When a long lasting infection is treated with CS...it will REALLY sting...all the way to what feels like behind the eye! So I am always prepared for a "hit" if there's an infection in me. Hold on when the CS goes into sinus cavity. But when I re apply...a few minutes later for second round...almost NO stinging. Good quality CS works fast."

[YEA]  04/17/2014: Tassi from California, US: "I take care of my 93 year old mother who has alzheimers and cannot move most of her body. Once she reached this stage, she started getting bedsores and we began a routine of shifting her in the bed every few hours, sometimes every 2 hours. I discovered a couple of things that make a difference. First, to cure a bedsore, the best thing is honey, Manukka honey if you can get it. The odd thing was that the two jars of it I bought, both the same brand but one with twice the "power" rating as the other were reversed in effect, I mean the lower power one cured faster than the one that was twice as expensive. (Note that I read that New Zealand produces a lot less Manukka honey than it sells -- IE, it is not all the 'real thing, ' so be careful.)

OK, best is to prevent bedsores in the first place. The thing I discovered first was zinc picolinate. Eight 25 mg tablets a day (crushed because of swallowing issues). That made her skin stronger and stopped the bedsores. This worked for about a year, but meanwhile her overall condition worsened
and she could no longer chew and eat regular food (or drink water) without choking. Her diet became very restricted and good nutrition became a problem (she has had only applesauce to "drink" for almost a year now). This is when we had to really move her body every two hours or pre-bedsore areas would form, even though I increased the zinc picolinate to 12 or more pills per day. But recently I read that 2500 IU of d-alpha tocopherol vitamin E is good for people with alzheimers, and then I discovered after giving her that for a couple of weeks that her skin no longer is forming those pre-bedsore blisters, and her skin seems stronger and not as thin.

So I thought I would try to pass on this important information in case it might help others.

04/18/2014: Mama To Many from Tennessee: "Dear Nomonde,

Your brother is blessed to have you watching out for him. 16 years is a long time to deal with this problem!

There are a number of things he can try, all of them could be done safely together.

Avoid dairy for a time. Dairy is mucous forming. After the issue is resolved, he can try it again and see how he does. I had a son that had a chronic throat clearing problem that was resolved when he gave up dairy. Interestingly, after 6 months or so of no dairy, he was able to have it again with no problem.

Lots of vitamin C. He can take a gram of it a few times a day. If it gives him diarrhea, he can cut back a bit. This would be good for lingering infection and is a natural anti-histamine, if indeed it is caused by allergies.

He should try Apple Cider Vinegar, 1 Tablespoon, in water once or twice a day.

Increasing his water intake may help to thin the mucous. Increasing fruits may also be helpful.

He can put a dropperful of colloidal silver into each nostril and each ear a few times a day to try and kill off any lingering infection.

Turmeric is a natural anti-inflammatory. A teaspoon once or twice a day may also be helpful.

Please let us know how he is doing. If none of this works, there are always more things to try, though I am hopeful that these things may be enough to help.

04/18/2014: Holisticmom624 from New York, Ny: "Hello, My question is in regards to the Mycoplasma - ureaplasma. There is mixed information online and although I have been told from my midwife that this can be contracted through intercourse, she also states it is not the only way. I don't believe that this is the way as my husband does not have it nor do I have any other partners. I have been, however, going to the doctor and there has been testing for SLE which I am not currently treating with anything besides healthy living and taking natural remedies.

I became very sick on the medication and did not have any significant symptoms of Lupus until I was put on medication. I currently have purchased MSM, and NAC as well as Hydrochloric acid and take all natural vitamins and minerals. So the underlining question: is this something I can treat naturally as other Mycoplasma as I do not feel comfortable taking antibiotics and am allergic to various funguses - and if so what can I take. Any information about this will be much appreciated"

In Holland we don't have a site like this and I found lots of information and tried some of the treatments I've found here. But when I was looking on other sites I've found a few items that told about Carrageenan as an inhibitor of the HPV, HIV and Herpes virus. I found some carrageen powder on a dutch website and decided to try it. Within 2 days after making a paste from some hot water and a teaspoon of the powder and putting it on my genitals the warts were gone. I've told this to a couple of people on a dutch forum and they all tried the carrageenan/water paste. The results are good with them too. The warts (small ones are gone in 2 days...bigger ones in 5 days) just disappear. Carrageenan is used in a lubricant (bioglide) to keep the virus from spreading but it can be used as a treatment too. Maybe one of you would like to try this too? It's cheap, doesn't burn your private parts and as far as I 've found out it works. Good luck. I hope my english is good enough for you to understand.

Well, if she was anything like you she must have been a TIGER.

You have been such an inspiration to so many and your remedies are articulate and (I think) inspired. I know you read a lot and so you are able to extrapolate the very thing to help in particular situations.

It's wonderful to have a web site like this one: Earth Clinic where someone of your background and knowledge base can inform and help people from around the world. And you so obviously CARE about the person writing.

Our founder is also an inspiration and HER mother is fantastic (and Beautiful). Lucky me...I've personally gotten to meet them and YOU. Am even more of a fan of yours now.

This was awesome. The blisters have almost disappeared and I am no longer itching uncontrollably. And the best part is that other parts of my body where I didn't put the ice packs have calmed down. I am not cured but I am not so out of control that I'm miserable. (I've had several emotional breakdowns this week due to the uncontrollable itching) I have been doing some crazy stuff to try to stay off the drugs. I have bathed using a solution of olive oil and sea salt (stings like crazy), then put on hydrogen peroxide (I was told today that this was bad b/c HP breaks down skin but it seems to be working for me), and then used triamcinolone cream and topped with coconut oil.

Exercise Helping Spider Veins
Thu, 17 Apr 14 22:56:31 -0500

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  04/17/2014: Fooshcat from West Michigan: "More and more we hear that exercise is a factor in preventing all sorts of diseases from cardiovascular to certain types of cancer to Alzheimer's. So, about 4 months ago I started an exercise routine using a light/medium cardio dvd 3-4 days a week. About 6 weeks ago I switched the routine and began rotating between 3 dvds 5 days a week. One dvd involves toning with light weight and lots of reps; another is toning with weights, lots of reps and interval bursts of cardio; the third dvd involves toning circuits, but it moves at such a pace that my heart pumps like it's medium cardio. Each dvd is a good total body workout and each is about an hour long. Today I happened to notice the spider veins that appear on the inside of my ankle and foot area are much less noticeable. The right ankle/foot was worse for some reason and it looks substantially better. The spider veins on the left ankle/foot are now barely noticeable. The only other change I've made recently is to eliminate artificial sweeteners and add more fruit to my diet. I've always eaten fairly healthy - lots of vegetables, the only meat I eat is wild caught fish, and we eat organic when possible. I've taken an eye health supplement for years that contains rutin which is supposed to be good for veins, but that's not new to my routine. My main unhealthy vice in life is wine!

While the exercise doesn't seem to be helping my cellulite (any tips on this would be greatly appreciated! ), it appears to be helping those nasty little squiggly veins. It'll make me feel better about wearing sandals this summer! For reference, I'm 43 years old and about 10 lbs overweight and have an office job that forces me to sit all day."

04/15/2014: Mama To Many from Tennessee, Usa: "As I have mentioned here and there, I have been out of town a lot lately. My mother was terminally ill and I was able to with her the last couple of weeks of her life. In memory of my mother, I thought I would share some of my mother’s folk remedies.

I was raised with pretty conventional medical treatment. However, Mom always came up with things here and there that were obviously passed down from her mother and perhaps her grandmother. Sadly, as a child, I didn’t really appreciate some of her medicines. And none of us liked her way of taking our temperature, if you know what I mean! :)

If I had a sore throat, Mom was sure to have me gargle salt water. Often. I hated to do it. How was salt going to help? I probably wouldn’t have admitted it even if it did. As an adult and mother I now see the wisdom in gargling salt water.

When I was four years old I got my first bee sting. It sure did hurt. Somehow, Mom knew what to do. She made a baking soda paste and covered the sting. She told me that my granddaddy would have put tobacco on it. I couldn’t imagine how that would help, but now I realize that plants do make great medicine!

I had a thumb sucking habit and later a nail biting habit. Mom sure tried to cure these things. When I was at my parent’s house recently, I found in a drawer a forty year old bottle of “Thumb.” It was that yucky stuff Mom would put on my thumb and then my fingernails to try to cure me of my habits!!! I was curious and read the label. It had cayenne extract in it! Apparently my mom used herbal remedies, after all.

I had my wisdom teeth removed when I was 18. I had it done the day before Thanksgiving when I was home from college on Fall break. After the surgery we went to the pharmacy to get medicine. Then we went home. Mom had me put plain old Lipton tea bags in my mouth and clamp down on them at the surgery sites to help the bleeding. And it worked! It helped the bleeding and probably helped the healing and swelling. I had no swelling at all. In fact, I was able to eat Thanksgiving dinner the next day. I ate everything on my plate with no problem. I am sure the tea bags and Mom’s TLC were part of the reason why. I was also blessed that my teeth had not been impacted and surgery was straightforward.

Good ole bedrest were prescribed for any sickness. If you were sick, you stayed in bed, or at least on the couch. If you stayed home from school, you surely did not go out and play. You ate lightly if at all and drake Coke. To this day, the only time I like to drink Coke is when I am sick.

04/17/2014: Rahoz from Bc: "@Ann14 from Texas: ACV, though sound and taste "acidic" and thus one may think it would cause more acidity and worsen acid reflux, however, its not about the acidic taste but the end products of ACV (and lemon juice too) in body which are actually alkaline in nature. If you look up acid reflux section of this website, you will be surprised to see how hundreds of people actually found relief and even cure from acid reflux (GERD) by using ACV.

I myself had an esophageal motility disorder which would cause me extreme reflux symptoms to the point of vomiting every thing out. No meds worked but ACV has almost cured it. Last year I only had 4 reflux incidences resulting in vomiting, where as it used to be at least twice every day just two years ago.

I would suggest you give ACV a fair chance with full confidence and get rid of prevacid or any other PPI you might be using for reflux as they rob body off much needed magnesium resulting in increased migraine headaches and hypertension over the years, where as ACV actually provide good amount of Mg too and has no side effects.

I was reading through some older posts on this forum and noticed one guy who had severe LPR symptoms saying that eats lots of yogurt to combat it. In my experience, and according to the ancient healthcare system Ayurveda, yoghurt shouldn't be taken on its own as it is acidic to the body. Instead yoghurt is best best mixed with water to create the cooling drink called Lassi (that you'll probably know from Indian restaurants). I usually add around 4 tablespoons of live yoghurt to a glass of water then stir vigorously. Lovely and healing ;)

Also, since stress can cause LPR symptoms to flare up, I recommend and practice Transcendental Meditation (TM) twice a day and wouldnt be without it.

I woke up in the night to feel a bump and tingle on my top lip, I immediately applied Zovirax but by the morning the sore was already blooming. I iced the sore for 10 minutes at a time, four times in the day and applied garlic for 15 seconds in between, putting a layer of VOC after each time. It's the smallest and the quickest recovery I've ever had from a CS."

04/17/2014: Jpl from Los Angeles, CA: "Eat organic yogurt. I only eat wallaby from whole foods or Ralph's or sprouts. No I'm not a seller. Just someone with more than 10 years experience with this problem. And having tried most everything. The wallaby will cure the cut from inside. But you still have to keep stools soft. And sometimes I add coconut oil or neosporin to the outside, especially at night and before going to the bathroom. If wallaby ever goes out of business I'm in trouble. 100 million probiotics in one cup. And no the pills with billions didn't work. For some reason it has to be yogurt."

  Re: Cherry Angiomas and Diet
Thu, 17 Apr 14 09:59:53 -0500

04/17/2014: Gary Sellars from Houston: "Cherry angiomas are caused by bromine poisoning, as one person mentioned, which also causes a problem with assimilating iodine, so you might consider supplementing with an appropriate form of iodine. I'm not claiming there are not other causes, but this seems to be the major cause. I know Swanson Vitamin Co. has some really impressive reviews on their iodine supplements. They were very surprising to me when I read them because, like most people, I naively believed the claim that we get enough iodine and until I searched for what I had (I didn't know that it was called a cherry angioma or what caused it). I didn't realize until I read about the cause, that I knew immediately what caused it. I used to drink Mountain Dew, which had brominated vegetable oil in it and I loved bread and grew up on "enriched white flour." Bromine is added to bread and a number of sodas. Beware and do an Internet search. (Thank God for the Internet! )"

04/17/2014: Peggy from Usa Wv: "The baking soda prevents the gas build up and boosting. My FIL used it all the time for indigestion and boosting. I use it occasionally with my H Pylori and ulcer. What helps me most so far has been a tablespoon of organic coconut oil."

Re: Sun Gazing

[YEA]  04/17/2014: Sam from Uk: "Dear Ted, I have been sun gazing since I was a child, I am now in my 40's. I came across articles about sun gazing recently like it is a new thing and that someone has suddenly invented it, which is not at all the case. I have read some of the other comments about rules and suchlike regarding sun gazing and I personally feel that individuals should research carefully so called "new" methods of healing and health before practicing. However I also agree that the individual must follow their instinct when it comes to these things as there really is no rule or set path to healing, as we are all individuals with our own way. What works for one does not necessarily work for another. I have personally been sun gazing for over 40 years with my eyes closed. That's it. No particular time of day or place and no particular amount of time except when I feel it is time to stop. The sun is a nourishing life giving energetic force, so any moment at any time or place I personally feel is suitable. Healing does not occur in specific places except in our minds and there is no right or wrong way. There is no right or wrong way to connect to the source .. there just is. Healing is healing as long as our intent is there and we follow our instinct along with common sense and plenty of research. Energy will follow thought."
