Latest Posts Rachel October 21, 2019 at 7:54 pm on Dupuytren’s Contracture RemediesHi Jean, Thank you for posting this information. Now that it’s two years later, how has this treatment turned out for your husband? I would so like to know which dmso and iodine products you’ve used, and the proportions. Best healing wishes for us all. Thank you so much.Rachel October 21, 2019 at 7:38 pm on Dupuytren’s Contracture RemediesHi Colleen, It would be wonderful to have an update on your healing. I have nodules in both hands, although only one hand was affected for almost two years. I just noticed the other hand about 6 weeks ago. Is the mixture helping you? I’m not sure which type of iodine and dmso to buy. Will you tell me what you are using? This all causes such an emotional toll. I hope that we can fix it!Elizabeth October 21, 2019 at 2:19 pm on How to Get Rid of a Lingering Virus Using Natural RemediesI am a 73 year old widow. My husband died in 2010. My only adult child died in 2013. When he died so did I. Unfortunately, we know that's not exactly true. In 2016 I went to a hair salon and got a hair cut. That was May 28, 2016. I don't know if that has anything to do with my illness, but my scalp condition began a few weeks after that haircut. No one YET has been able to cure me... or to make a correct diagnosis. I've been to about 20 M.D.s, nine (9) of whom were Dermatologists, a few Internists, and a few GPs. I will try not to bore you with a lot of history. I have written a physical history on paper for all the future doctors I go to. It's called, "My Story, The Perfect Storm." But I will tell you a couple of things, I cannot take ANY anti-inflammatory drugs and other type of drugs as well because I lost my left kidney in 1999 because of a oncocytoma, benign. My liver doesn't like antibiotics for some reason so if I have to take one, I take it at a low dose. Since no one here uses or suggests anything stronger than an aspirin I will stop with the medications to which I'm allergic (anything with a "pril" or an "arb"). At first I thought I had gotten bedbugs, then I thought I had demodex mites, and now I'm leaning toward a virus or retrovirus. I was bitten by a tick in the winter of 1989/90. I got a very high fever and a rash. I then went to my GP and he said, "it looks like Lyme to me," but the lab test came back negative. After the fever subsided I felt better, but the body aches and fatigue I still have to this day in Oct. 2019 ... from 30 years ago. I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue a few months after the tick bite. September 2018 doctor here, just after I moved, did a lab test for Lyme Disease, after hearing a little bit of My Story. It came back positive for Lyme and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. Now, do you kind of see why I'm thinking "retrovirus?" After the traumatic event in 2013, my already low immune system was shot down even farther and now, at least, the scalp and hair are paying the price. Maybe more areas internally. However last night and today I noticed the virus is spreading. Because the scalp is so itchy, I unconsciously (and consciously) put my hands to my head. Now I have noticed (via flash-on camera) in my thousands of photographs the 'critters' are ALL OVER my hands. If I scrub with a brush and straight germicidal bleach I can get rid of over half of them, anything you would normally wash your hands with, even the alcohol-based hand wash and sanitizer, does almost nothing noticeable. My trsrnt past I've used essential oils on my body, especially my head including tea tree oil, lavender, Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar, clear vinegar, a little alcohol on my skin and hair, (not a whole lot) and hydrogen peroxide on everything. I have photos of the virus critters (for lack of a formal definition) in my ear canal, nose, and eyes. I need cataract surgery (the doctors tell me). I refuse until I get rid of this virus. None of them believe me and look at me like I have already checked out of the sanity part of my life. One Dermatologist even diagnosed me with "parasitic psychosis." I told her I could prove it if she would look at my photos. None of them have the time to stop for 2 mins and simply look! Any suggestions? (I know, check into a psych hospital!)

October 21, 2019 at 2:01 pm on Honey Benefits and Medicinal CuresWe haven't had dry eyes, but, have used organic virgin Coconut oil for eye infections. It makes eyesight cloudy for awhile after putting it on the eyelid (it works its way into the eye from there), so best to do it when you won't be reading or driving! I don't recall any stinging sensation from using O.V.C.O. in our eyes. I *have* read experiences of a few others using Coconut oil for dry eye, though. One used it when she ran out of eyedrops & couldn't get more, so used Coconut oil in a pinch. They reportedly never went back to prescription drops, as the O.V.C.O. reportedly worked much better!Pam E. October 21, 2019 at 1:53 pm on Honey Benefits and Medicinal Cures"...Glycerin is a humectant that can be naturally derived from plant oils, or...can also be synthetically produced. As a humectant, glycerin works to moisturize...skin by drawing water from...air into the skin's outer layer. It also forms a protective layer that helps prevent moisture loss. However, the moisturizing effects...are dependent upon the climate — if the air has less than 65% humidity, glycerin will draw moisture from the lower layers of the skin and hold it on the surface, drying the skin from the inside out. Another drawback is that products formulated with high levels of humectants such as glycerin will leave a tacky feel on the skin...."

I went back to the doctor twice thinking something for sure was in it. My doctor said it was dry eyes. Dry eyes tear a lot and they feel like something is in the eye. It was hard for me to believe but I accepted his opinion. I learned that good quality salmon oil capsules taken by mouth will help dry eyes and it did, ending my symptoms. KimMadelyn S. October 20, 2019 at 7:16 pm on Bad Breath Remedies for Dogs and CatsHi. Our schipoo is 14 years old. Dental surgery has been ruled out, pain meds make him sick or fearfully lethargic. He seems fine without them, except at feeding time. We've been mincing fresh chicken, serving with its own natural broth or ground beef. Somedays he's fine, other days the pain is obviously too much. We known he's in his senior years, but his dental struggle is heartbreaking. Outside of this he still has pep in his step. Any safe remedy suggestions would be very much appreciated.Nancy October 20, 2019 at 6:31 pm on Natural Remedies for LymphedemaMy mother had a radical mastectomy in her 50s and taught herself Acupressure because of the lymphedema.

October 20, 2019 at 6:43 am on Home Remedies for Rolling Skin DiseaseHello April, Sorry to hear about your poor Teagan...it sounds like the poor animal is really suffering. My 5 year old precious one also suffers from it, but in a mild way, so I started searching the internet for natural treatments. I have found two holistic websites who say it is not a medical condition but a metabolic dysfuntion, borne of mineral deficiensies. The websites are: savvyholistichealth.com and twocrazycatladies.com. After reading everything, it really resonates with me, so I am going to give this a try, with my little one, before it got worse. It is all natural, so it will not hurt them, like vetmedicines. I really hope this will help you and your Teagan!Jane October 20, 2019 at 4:13 am on Natural Remedies for Body Hair (Hypertrichosis)Try a pharmacy. It's used as a deodorant.

October 19, 2019 at 4:33 pm on Hydrogen Peroxide for Sinus InfectionsJust ONE% H2O2 has worked for many of the commenters here! But eve n that has burned, some. So, I believe the dilution should be 1% or less ... certainly not more of H2O2!Pam E. October 19, 2019 at 4:30 pm on Hydrogen Peroxide for Sinus InfectionsDid your chiropractor say to use 3, 35%, or some other strength of H2O2? That akes a LOT of difference, you know!Pam E. October 19, 2019 at 4:27 pm on Hydrogen Peroxide for Sinus InfectionsGlad it worked for you! However, PLEASE state what percentage H2O2 you made your dilution with! There's a *HUGE* difference between 1/2 of 3%, and, 1/2 of 35%! Thank You! (:Pam E. October 19, 2019 at 4:24 pm on Hydrogen Peroxide for Sinus InfectionsH2O2 releases oxygen, which when combined with constituents in food in our gut can cause real problems ... such as rust when it mixes with iron! I know someone with a sseizure disorder who took 1 drop in water every day for a week, then started taking 2 drops with water daily.... That 1st day after upping the dose -even though her stomach was empty when she drank it- she had two grand mal seizures in a row.... She's never taken H2O2 orally again! ....I think even just using it as a nasal rinse it should be further diluted to only ONE % H2O2, or less. There should be no burning sensation from using it!Pam E. October 19, 2019 at 4:17 pm on Hydrogen Peroxide for Sinus InfectionsJust ONE % dilution of H2O2 is plenty strong for treatment! Too strong a dilution can cause inflammation & swelling, thus worsening symptoms like you describe! 50/50 is WAY too strong!Pam E. October 19, 2019 at 4:12 pm on Hydrogen Peroxide for Sinus InfectionsIf the H2O2 you used was 35% in the bottle, mixing it with water, 50/50, left it around 12.5% H2O2 ... MUCH TOO HIGH for application to skin, and especially to mucus membranes! I don't recommend using anything over 1% of H2O2!Pam E.

October 19, 2019 at 3:31 pm on Hydrogen Peroxide for Sinus InfectionsIf the H2O2 has been properly diluted to a safe level it should cause *no* pain.

It is important to note which part of your blood iron is showing to be low - serum ferritin or iron. Serum ferritin is like cash in your wallet whereas iron is cash in your bank. Both are important and knowing the numbers will point you in the right direction to fix it. To increase my ferritin (low) and to maintain iron (normal), I've had to take iron in the middle of the night away from food and beverages. In addition, perhaps consider checking to see if you have a methylation problem. If so, you will not be able to use the unmethylated B vitamins (folate, B12) which is a big contributor to certain types of anemia. Google specifically what your bloodwork shows - meaning the iron (Is it low, normal, or high?) plus the ferritin (Is it low, normal, or high?). You will get better info by being specific regarding both types of bloodwork for iron and ferritin.Pam E. October 19, 2019 at 3:09 pm on Hydrogen Peroxide for Sinus InfectionsThat could only kill germs that the q-tip touches. That would not / could not loosen thick mucous in the sinus cavities.

Thanks, ToddNita October 18, 2019 at 11:22 pm on Anemia RemediesWhen I was diagnosed anemic back in January, my doctor recommended a natural iron supplement and said come back in 3 months. 3 months later bloods dropped one point from 7 to 6 and it was thought there is a problem with iron absorption. I thought I’ll beat this. I took 2 T molasses a day, natural iron tabs, beets nearly every day and every other high iron food I could find.. 4 months later books have dropped to 4 and I’m dragging myself around or in bed. Doctor has suggested a parasite cleanse as I travel to developing countries every year, a colonoscopy to rule out internal bleeding and an iron infusion. Has anyone else had this experience of inability to absorb iron?Paloma October 18, 2019 at 11:11 pm on Medicinal Turpentine Side EffectsThanks for the explanation. Good to know!

I had a brown "liver" spot on the back of my hand that was gone in three days using a combination of natural things which i cannot recall with certainty. I scrubbed it with baking soda to exfoliate the surface, applied 3% peroxide, lemon juice, cleaned it with isopropyl, and finally rubbed in some homemade horseradish as far as i recall. I saw that the more i scrubbed at it with the horseradish the lighter it got. It turned from dark brown to light purple and puffed up as i scrubbed at it. Without any more treatment it was nearly gone within minutes, and by day three completely gone. My point being strange side effects may happen. I have used acv to remove moles with success within days without any damage to the surrounding skin. It is not likely, I think, that the ACV is causing any damage to the healthy skin. Probably the black color is a good sign, especially if you have a dark complexion to begin with. Did you mean the carcinoma was healing when you said it was clearing up? If it gets too scarey you might sooth it with some fresh aloe gel until you can discern what is happening.
