I just want to Thank Earth Clinic for all the insights and helps that have improved the quality of my life the past few years. I use many tips from this site and have grown in compassion to the fellow sufferers that come here to write what has helped them feel healthier. Symptoms are generally bells going off to tell us something is amiss. I have shut down many bells ringing but something deeper was amiss. I did enjoy the moments when the ringing stopped and I could rest and enjoy some peace. My symptoms were generally not from an injury or cold but from long term trauma and a brain injury as a toddler that set me sailing off course. I have learned a lot and some things I thought I learned were only band aids to hide the wounds from me. I use the apple cider vinegar daily, soy lecithin granules, alpha lipoic acid, vitamin d-3 with k-2, msm, and now milk thistle . magnesium and many others but I am here to say THANK YOU EARTH CLINIC FAMILY, it helps to know I am not the only one looking to solve issues with bells ringing too loud for me to concentrate. I hope you all find the source of the alarms and enjoy some Peace and Health this 2017. LOVE, Charity

To Earth Clinic and all...its a day about love. I am sending love to each of the contributors to my trek to life.
If it was not for this site and the people here I would be in a nursing home. Or possibly gone from this earth. Some days it was remedies other days it was the sense that I was not alone...the possibility the hope. I certainly was at rock bottom. I am healthy now and have a tool box of solutions to solve things when I am not.
Yet the greatest gift was the patience and kindness exibited here.
Mine and my families lives changed here. You all did not see it play out as I never wrote or responded here. Was I too sick? Was I too busy? I do not think so. I spent the years getting well waiting for the other shoe to drop. A lifetime of allopathic care and bad medicine trained me. The scenario always the same. dr visit, hope, specialist, hope, new script or therapy, hope, to be dashed after that brief honeymoon of symptoms being alieviated.
The other shoe never dropped. Sure, some things I tried were not ideal. Certainly I benefited from the failures and the successes.
You taught me patience. Not a gift I was born with. The patience of repetition. How can you write the same thing and answer the same question over and over, often from the same person. I find this miraculous.
Deirdre thank you for this place. Janet
Liz from Victoria, Australia: "Well I have finally taken the plunge and joined earth clinic after years of using your site for all my familys health problems, you are a wonderful site. I take 2 tablespoons of ACV in water each morning and have cleared up my post nasal drip that doctors could never heal, cured. I now use colloidal silver every day as I have found it better on my skin cancers than ACV, I have solar keratosis everywhere (the joy`s, of an Australian sun), I wipe it on each cancer and take 1/2 tablespoon daily I do this once daily and so far the results are great it has cured many small ones, also I work in a garden centre and any small cuts and rose thorn sores it heals overnight a great product that I would never have known about if I had not found this site, we now keep a bottle at work. Keep up the good work Earth Clinic"
Laura: "I am so very thankful for this website. You have helped me several times when no doctor could, and I will always be grateful to your group. I am spreading the word about your fantastic help. Thank God for colloidal silver, apple cider vinegar and the other wonderful things out there that cure us naturally when our glorious doctors have nothing. You are THE BEST for helping so many. Thank you and God bless each of you, Laura
Mary from North Carolina: "I just want to say thank you and compliment you on such a wonderful website where women can get information and all kinds of support from like minded people with similar health problems.

"Dear Earth Clinic/Deirdre; Although I will be unable to catch the radio show, if possible would like to say first thanks so much! and second, that one of the major health cures I have received since 1998 (and it has never returned) is the bronchitis cure: on earth clinic at the time it was also known as Witch's Brew: 1/4 cup warm water, 1 tbsp. raw honey, 2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar (and I added a pinch of organic cayenne pepper) mix and drink it down. And third would be Ted; anything he says, I take very seriously because his advice is sound and checks out as solid cures. I must confess since coming to this website over ten years ago, have eliminated most if not all dairy products (much of them are mucus producing, especially cheese), cut down drastically on breads (all kinds) and eliminated meat (use poultry once in a great while and mainly plant proteins), as well as follow the very sound advice and tips from fellow former sufferers who have found many cures, especially Ted. I use regularly organic apple cider vinegar which has been a staple in my home since the late nineties. There are many more cures, but the main cure was changing my lifestyle, re: what I eat and drink. Thanks Deirdre and Earth clinic. Am sure you and the callers will be a smash hit tonight. Sincerely and gratefully, Dee, Springfield, MA"
Elaine from Atlanta, Ga: "I found this website in 2011 when I was searching for a natural cure to help my dog who was itching and licking her side like crazy. In a matter of a few days, she was on the road back to health by using Apple Cider Vinegar on her. I have found her shampoo for yeast that I have used for 3 years. Whenever I have issues with her, I immediately pull my Apple Cider Vinegar spray out. Thru your website, I became a forever fan of organic Apple Cider Vinegar and now my whole family takes it daily. Over the last few years, I have visited your website whenever I needed medical answers and have passed this site on to others. I have discovered the health rewards of coconut oil, hydrogen peroxide and another one I take daily, black strapped molasses and so much more thru this website. This is the first time I've posted on a website but could not pass this opportunity to thank you immensely that people can come here and share their stories so they and the readers can benefit from this exchange of natural and holistic methods. May God bless you and the continuation of this service. EGK"
Mary from Arcadia, Ca: "I would like to take this time to thank you so much. You have no idea what a great thing you have done to help so many. I no longer have my mother now that I am a senior citizen as well. It is nice to have a place to go to when you are not feeling well. This site you have created has helped so many and I in turn have advised my friends to try your site out for help. Thank you both and thank you many times over. It is a major blessing for me and my family. God bless you both always. With love and appreciation, Mary"
Sueyd from Harrison, Me: "Our dear family dog developed a cyst near his tail recently. We noticed it under the fur for several weeks before he finally started biting at it and removed the fur. It was quite a mess! My husband was afraid that it was time to put him down (he's a 10 yr old, big, furry husky/shepherd, etc mix). I searched online for a home remedy and came across your site - and was SO pleased to find that many others had experienced similar things with their dogs and offered solutions that seemed to WORK!!!! So - I bought some turmeric from the grocery store. We started sprinkling it on his dry dog food morning and afternoon - probably 1/2 teaspoon per day. By the end of the first week, the skin was growing back, by the end of the second week, the fur was growing in. It's been two months now - we give him a sprinkle a couple times a week - I think he misses it! - but the cyst is completely gone! AND - he is more lively and 'happy' ever since!
OK - that's only HALF of the story! My husband broke a tooth the other day and is experiencing flu-like symptoms since then, so I told him I'd go on-line and do some home-remedy research for him. Well...I've been reading on your site for HOURS today (we'll be starting the oil-pull soon! ), and was reading about the benefits of turmeric (for humans! ), and thought, "Oh! I should post on here that it works for pets, too! " and...come to find out - it's the SAME wonderful site that I had found that saved our dear dog!!! You guys are amazing! I'm so thankful and excited - and taking notes - that I found your site - what a great resource!!! And so thankful for all the comments from people that have tried the different remedies.
Sue M. from Worden, Il, USA: "It is so hard in this day and age to find people who truly give of themselves without expecting some kind of gratuity or endorsement. Over the years, the knowledge you share with us from your life experiences and research you have done, have been priceless. I have learned so much. And that's what teachers do.... Give of themselves. Thank you."
Lon from Stanhope, NJ: "My son was hospitalized for serious, rapidly spreading cellulitis, which started with a boil. He responded well enough to antibiotics to come home, but although the culture indicated the boil was not MRSA, the boils did not respond to the various antibiotics the Drd tried. He developed multiple boils on and around his privates which wouldn't go away. By the way he's been hospitalized, had many surgeries and on intravenous and antibiotics many times for a digestive disease he was born with. The celulitis came back three times, while following the infectuous disease Dr's advice to control it, which was exhausting, frustrating for both of us and ineffective. Of course the Drs think you're not following their directions if their strategy doesn't work. Then I found this site! I gave my son one turmeric capsule three times daily for three days. A nutritionist suggested I watch the acid alkaline balance of his diet. Topically I applied black salve to any full blown boils. If I noticed any small emerging boils which have not yet formed pus at the tip, I apply straight tea tree oil to the tip only, being careful not to get it on the surrounding skin. I discovered the effectiveness of these particular topicals by observation after using so many topical remedies.The advantage of the black salve is that it stays on without a dressing. I couldn't use bandages/poultices because of the location of his boils. Nothing has worked like the turmeric, supported by the topical application of black salve and tea tree oil for healing the boils, as well as watching the diet. He now takes one turmeric a day for prevention. The origin i think is candida, but we're working on that.
My son has Down Syndrome, Hirschsprung's disease (never could spell it.), and an ileostomy, so you can imagine the difficulties with nutrition. It was an ordeal I thought would never end. I worried constantly that the celulitis would return. It's been almost a year without boils or cellulitis. Thank you for this site! If it wasn't for this site we probably would have continued with the endless cycle of antibiotics and hospitalization."
Andrea from Ontario, Canada writes: "Earth Clinic Setup: Please do not change into a forum! I love how you have this site set up. I tell everyone how easy it is to just be able to go to the "Latest Posts" page and browse through for new info each day. You have everything in Alphabetical Order for selecting specific areas of interest on the Ailments page and I love that too! Your site is simple, bright, and easy on the eyes, no fluff and no threads to navigate through to find something.
I have seen many forums turn into arguments and nastiness and what I love about your site is that it just is, what it is, information. It's easy to navigate and so nice to see just emails being posted daily! There are times I may have had a question about something, and when the time is right, the answer just appears on your site or I research it on the internet.
I love this site because it is soooo unique and such a quiet pleasurable place to come each day. Kind people have also responded on here to questions as well. It's a peaceful place to be which I look forward to coming to each day!
Thank you for this, for being different, for helping so many and to all the wonderful people who post."
Margaret from Knoxvilleq, Tennessee writes: "I cannot thank you enough for this wonderful resource. I find myself using your website over and over for ailments and remedies for both humans and dogs. You have saved me countless trips to the vet as well as our family physician. I have spread your name and location far and wide to anyone and everyone who tells me of their ills or asks my opinion. Thank you thank you thank you. God Bless you and yours!
Aline emails: "Thank you for having such a wonderful site that helps so many people who need healing. God bless you."
Lorraine emails: "The Earth Clinic site is by far THE BEST health site ever! I have been working toward a Master's in Public Health and so I am quite discriminating about what I read, especially on the web. My husband and I have used several of the remedies with great success and I have recommended it to all my friends and family. Many, many thanks for this wonderful site! Lorraine"
Bob from Boston, Ma writes: "I ended up on your site looking for a cure for shingles. I found it and it involved among other things Apple cider vinegar to be ingested and a mix of Aloe vera and crushed cayenne pepper rubbed on the redness which almost instantly brought the blisters to a head. I was done with shingles in about a week. Because of all the testimonials here, I decided to keep on taking the ACV orally 3 times a day. In liquid form or capsules. I realized that my flow of urine got stronger and started to last much longer. I had prostate problems for a few years and I was taking every day some very expensive herbal tea that was working somewhat. I decided to stop the herbal tea and stay on the ACV only. I now pee like a 15 years old and I'm not on any medication. ACV also cured me of my insomnia! Thank you Earth Clinic for such a great site."
Jeannie from Asheville, NC writes: "I work in a related field of care and have a history of working in health care fields for most of my adult life, and I so appreciate this site and just want to remind folks: conventional medicine is constrained by reimbursement and the system that surrounds actual care. It isn't that your doc doesn't care about you or that he/she does or doesn't believe that natural remedies will be effective. But there is a system in place which works very well to support reimbursable services. And no one is going to get paid for your ACV or your H2O2. So be a conscientious consumer, cut your doc some slack and provide as much relevant imformation as you can when you see a conventional MD. And whenever possible, do your own research first and find out if something simple and non-toxic will work for you. It's going to be up to you to do so, and this site is a wonderful aid to using your own common sense. Kudos for a great resource!"
Stan Wolfe, DVM, from Dallas, Texas writes: "I really love your website. I practiced in the Ozarks for many years and became well aquainted with many folk remedies that were quite effective. I learned many years ago that pharmaceuitcals, though sometimes necessary because folks allowed conditions to progress to emergency conditions, never really "cured" any long term, chronic or degenerative disease. For a long time now, I have worked with concentrated fruit pigment and botanical extracts, as well as oxidative therapies for true healing. Thank you for your website and I commend your work."

Stella from Ohio writes: "Since I have found Earth Clinic in February my overall mood & health has improved and not only because of Acv.& boric acid cures but, “Just Because”. Could Earth Clinic be a Cure in of itself? I think so. EC, I remember you saying somewhere that just reading stories makes people feel better and you are right! Maybe it’s the feeling of being Validated that brings Healing? Thank you so much EC you are a Blessing…"

Daniella writes, "Dear earthclinic,
I just want to write you and thank you so very much for your wonderful greatest site on the web. You are doing a great job!!! You are curing and helping many people around the world be healthy and have their lives in their hands, in their control and not in the control of doctors and hospitals. People reading the posts on your website will change their lives to the better so they won't surrender to a hospital at the last minute they suffer from anything. Then it would only be too late! Reading your website is not only an alternative remedy site, but also prevention for the future, a way of healthy living! Our daily stressful life prevents us from seeing the truth about food, diseases and sickness. You have opened the eyes and brains of many people. You are doing a very hard work to keep your website updated with new posts and comments and I just want to say RESPECT to your work. I also want to tell you that me and my whole family read the posts and we are grateful for Ted's advice and your hard work for keeping the website organized and running.
I am 25 years old, i have a tumor in my brain, from high prolactin, PCOS, over weight, hashimoto, Chronic fatigue syndrome and hypothyrodism. It is actually a cycle, one leads to another because i lived in a bad apartment, very humid and had mold, so i got sick and one thing lead to another sickness so i now have more than 6 diseases i am planning to fight and recover with the help of your website. I started with Ted's advise almost from January and i now feel much better with the remedies he advised me to take and with the posts (advice) i read on your website. I have been monitored by a doctor for more than 2 years with no success. Actually i became worse and i felt so tired and sleeping all the time until i found your website. What took me out of bed was alkalizing lemon and baking soda and sodium bicarbonate and ACV and sea salt (gives a lot of energy)... as any times a day as possible. I stopped white bread, all sugar and bad junk food. Now i eat healthy brain food, mostly fish and also chicken, stay away from red meat and follow a diet low with carbohydrate and high in protein, vegetables and fruits. I am feeling so much better with following Ted's advice about taking important supplements examples are: high dosage of zinc, magnesium, vitamin C and E, Selenium, chromium picolinate, lecithin for liver and brain, B complex, L Lysine, evening primrose oil, fish oil, borage oil, complex amino acids supplements to fight viruses and feel healthy, and alkalising a lot. I believe in Ted's remedies because whenever i don't alkalize for one day i feel very tired, when i alkalize i have so much energy and i feel alive again. I believe in what Ted says because he works on the body to function again and reverse the disease and reverse what stopped the organ to function. Since i have hypothyrodism, the doctor put me on Eltroxin, synthetic form of thyroid, which if i use, will cause my thyroid gland to be addicted to it and stop its function, also synthetic hormones causes osteoporosis at older age, so i refused to take the medication although i bought it, i was just scared of using synthetic medication. Now i am taking Kelp and L-Tyrosine to help my thyroid gland function normally.... and i will keep u posted on this one in the future but i feel good about it, i have no pain in my throat, and i feel normal... i will even make T3 T4 blood tests to see if it is working normally in a couple of months, and i will update you about the results. Also I had few grey hairs and they are starting to reverse with bee pollen, and high vitamin C.
You see you are helping a lot of people!!!!! :)
My mother had her ovaries and uterus removed and had chemotherapy (ovarian cancer) and she now has osteoporosis, osteoarthritis and scoliosis, but we follow your websites advice and she takes vitamins plus supplements and alkalizing to prevent any new cancer and stay strong and pain free...
My brother had crossed eyes, and after giving him high Dosage of vitamin C, E and magnesium, he now has straight eyes. His eye doctor advised him to have a laser therapy for that... but now his eyes focus, are centered, look great and alert from the supplements, it was only a supplement deficiency... so sometimes no need for expensive therapies and operations if a person can prevent or treat it.
I advise everyone to try Ted's remedies and believe in Earthclinic as they wont loose anything but rather they will gain a lot. Most of your remedies are life saving, and natural, and alternative, but the most beneficial I believe is the alkalizing , the baking soda and lemon and ACV and sea salt, I guess without these I would die slowly or be dead alive, with no energy. I am writing you in brief, if you like I can make a feedback on each case separate for you to post them, because me and my family have a lot of things to share that we are cured of or on the way of curing.
I also would suggest that you give the real fans of earthclinic the opportunity of becoming members of the site like with 5$ monthly or whatever fee per year or per 3 months and that we get your latest posts to our email inbox rather than checking every other day online. So, this is the least people can do to reward your efforts and benefit from the site, so registered (members) could email for advise and non members (guests) would only surf the site and have no possibility of emailing. I think this is the least everyone who benefits can do to repay your services and keep the site running because we the fans want this site to prosper forever and keep up the good work.
This is how many other sites work, and i am sure that this site has many fans, and many would love to become members.
I am a business graduate and i see your great site which should be more respected and should have more value and a higher reputation. The future of health is alternative remedy!
With the donation thing, it is confusing, because what is considered a fair amount to be paid? Everyone would wonder how much to pay, even myself... with the membership thing, it is more clear how much to pay and the site has more value for the hard work, efforts and services ... Let us equally reward the site especially the people who are benefiting from the services and it is not fair that some people pay and others don't donate, this is at least what I think. Guests are welcome to surf the site for free but members could do other things like even maybe forums to interact with one another as members and post questions to Ted.
I will keep you posted on my health progress and my comments.
Thank you for your lovely work and i wish you all the best.
many thanks again to everyone working on earthclinic.

KR from Rancho Cucamonga, CA writes: "Where do I begin to describe my journey into the ails of pulmonary distress? It all started years ago when my now 6-year old was a toddler at 2 and diagnosed with asthma. For close to five years she has been through all kinds of drugs, just treating the symptoms of her debilitating disease. She had it all, wheezing, shortness of breath, coughing with enormous amounts of phlegm lodged and trapped in her lungs… Before we had our nebulizer and the knowledge of how to use it, we would rush her to ER where they’d give her a breathing treatment (albuterol) and another 5-day dosage of steroid to eliminate her symptoms, which, nonetheless, still wouldn’t completely dissipate. It has been an ongoing, horrific battle from the beginning. Who knows how she even got this disease as she was breastfed from birth to two whole years and genetically, asthma is not on my side of the family nor my husband’s!
Our next bout with pulmonary issues presented with our 8-year old who, just last year, had pneumonia in both lungs and has had ongoing issues with sinusitis and dry cough in the winter.
The final blow came with our 2-year old, who for close to 4 months was getting what they first diagnosed as bronchiolitis, then the next month, bronchitis, then back to bronchiolitis and back and forth, back and forth, never being cured and certainly not even relieved from this horrible outcome for much longer than a week at a time. The doctor just kept prescribing more antibiotics and different ones every time only to have it return worse and more ferocious than the previous attacks. Her cough was so powerful it would make the capillaries in her face burst and she couldn’t hold down much, due to the force of her coughing and inevitably, suffered cough-induced vomiting (or was it the drugs or the infection, who knows?). That on top of fever often reaching as high as 103.5 and consistent reoccurrence of her sicknesses, just pushed me over the edge. My child’s doctor was now telling me they didn’t think it was bacterial, but rather viral since the infection didn’t respond long term to the antibiotics and kept coming back. The doctor then informed me that if it was something viral, there was nothing they could do and she’d have to wait it out or possibly, could suffer for the rest of her life! Now do you think a mother and lover of her offspring is going to sit back and listen to dooms day regarding the very apple of her eye? There was not another moment to waste with the medical community so I got to work researching every extra moment I could find to get to the bottom of something natural to deliver us all from everything, including the asthma and sinusitis. I came across some natural but costly remedies for asthma that I wouldn’t be able to try unless I made the initial investment which I knew we couldn’t do so I kept looking...
Low and behold, I finally found it here on Earth Clinic. I intuitively knew it was the answer but was scared out of my mind to use it because there’s not much info on how to apply it to children directly on this site or any other which is unfortunate because I believe the majority of asthma sufferers are children and the number one killer of children worldwide is pneumonia! Therefore, from my now new knowledge, it makes sense that the Munro HP Inhalation method is THE number one remedy for all such lung sickness (asthma, pneumonia, bronchitis, bronchiolitis, etc.). I prayed and asked God to direct my paths as I knew I was embarking on something extraordinary but unknown and unfamiliar to me. In complete and utter desperation for a remedy to relieve my children, I pulled out my Walmart brand 3% hydrogen peroxide from Aaron Industries, diluted it 1 part HP to 3 parts purified water (bottled water) and poured from that solution the little amount needed into the nebulizer capsule. During a violent cough attack, I began with my baby who breathed very little and INSTANTANEOUSLY, her cough disappeared as if she never had it to begin with. I then began giving her regular and daily treatments (2-4 per day and as much as she’d breath in one hit which often wasn’t a lot because she wouldn’t tolerate it for too long) of this same solution and very quickly noticed her lungs being cleared and no fever flair ups. After approximately one week, she was miraculously cured of that blasted virus that wouldn’t let go!!! I took her back to the doctor for her follow-up shortly thereafter, and the doctor checked her lungs with her stethoscope. The doc dropped her jaw to the floor because I don’t believe she even thought my baby would have bounced back so soon. I then informed her that I had found a natural remedy that I wouldn’t share with her since it’s so outside of her box. She concurred and stated she did not want to know what it was but on the flipside, she encouraged me to continue it because it actually works! I then gently “fired” her because she wanted to prescribe my baby on a daily regiment of steroids in the form of Pulmicort Respules using the nebulizer which I had already been there and done that with her sister for all these years. I apprised this doc that I, mom, would now not only be handling my childrens’ infections but their asthma care as well (how empowering is that?!). Simultaneously, I began these same treatments for my asthmatic 6-year old because she was experiencing continual dry cough that previously would take many days and drugs to see any relief from. Again, INSTANTANEOUSLY, her cough dissipated and she’d go straight back to bed, able to sleep through the rest of the entire night without further disturbance. This was unheard of for all the years that we have suffered with her; we’ve endured many sleepless and restless nights. Now, whenever she coughs at night from her asthma, she gets what we dubbed, “natural nebulizer” and she really raves about it, no more racing heart and shakes from the after-effects of albuterol. For my 8-year old, the natural nebulizer initially helped her cough out some mucous but I prescribed her some ACV (regular, store-bought) in her juice every day and a lot of tea with honey which seemed to help her situation with sinusitis out even more. In a couple of weeks, she also was completely cleaned and cleared up.
For me personally, I started my menstrual cycle and began to experience my usual, incredibly painful headache. I wouldn’t say a migraine but something close to it. I thought, why not, it’d be better than popping another pill (acetaminophen) with the potential of vomiting as has occurred to me in the past. I began our natural nebulizer treatments but upped the HP dosage a bit for myself and viola, my headaches disappeared instantaneously too and the treatments really made my heavy, achy body feel light and unloaded again. I began every two hours for up to two days and then experienced what I think could have been a cleansing but I’m not sure. I don’t know if it was a cleansing because I normally get severe diarrhea at the onset of my menstruation. All I know is my stomach cramped up really bad and I could feel something fighting in there. The stool I passed would most certainly have been diarrhea as always in the past, but actually came out solid, though still soft. It was simply unbelievable! I felt 100% after that until later that night when my whole body ached and that nasty headache came firing back. I snuck downstairs so as not to awake my husband and took a natural nebulizer treatment which drove away the headache and enabled me to sleep through the rest of the night like a baby. The aches in my body left along with the headache and I was convinced that HP and I will never be apart again! There’s a new one (remedy) for PMS. Currently, I only use these natural nebulizer treatments for dire necessities for myself and baby but more regularly on my asthmatic as she needs the maintenance. Thank you for hosting this site which I now visit daily to learn as much as I can. Thank you to all who contribute their input because we’re all learning and growing together through the good and the bad knowing that “all things work together for the good…”
I just have a question for Ted in regard to the issue with hydrogen peroxide, used over a period of time, is it true that it erodes red blood cells as stated in the erroneous article about the South Carolina woman with MS who was injected with it IV? Can you address the red blood cell issue on that as I now understand that she died of the drugs NOT the HP treatments but would still like more info regarding the red blood cell issue.
Also, from my experience in dealing with small children especially, it is of critical importance that the HP inhalation method solution be diluted down considerably as they will not tolerate any stinging to their throat. As reported, I found the diluted solution to still do wonders for my children. Another side bar: I believe in treating children with the HP inhalation method, one should consider using a nebulizer machine instead of a spray bottle, the vapor is finer and more tolerable instead of just a mist and it’s easier for them to handle the whole breathing in and out motion because the machine does so much more for them. I know in my state if a child is diagnosed with asthma, a doctor is legally bound to order the machine for them which will be delivered to your door free of charge. The reason for this being that sometimes asthma attacks are so acute that without this home treatment tool, one could die before arriving to a hospital so it is a liability issue for the doctor. My suggestion for those without this machine that are not able to pay for one is to take your child to the doctor and if not already diagnosed with asthma, get an asthma diagnosis and request that the doctor “fill a prescription” by ordering you a nebulizer machine. Just be sure not to disclose if you plan on using it as a natural nebulizer versus the nemesis (i.e. albuterol). I am not advocating dumping out your albuterol as I still keep some in case of emergencies but as far as using our natural nebulizer treatments for my asthmatic, so far so good as we have not had the need since for anything in our cupboard full of asthma-related drugs.
Another way I began using hydrogen peroxide since my discovery here is for my hair. I found the method described by someone on this site of putting the HP into your shampoo and shaking it up to clean your hair a little too harsh on my scalp. Instead, being a dirty blonde, I prefer the method of spraying straight 3% on my hair after a shower, while wet, and brushing it all the way through. This method has brightened my hair considerably, and my husband believes it looks better than a $300.00 professional color treatment. I am now back to a bouncing blonde, natural and highlighted looking instead of that chemical, bleached look. I just turned 40 two days ago and now look again closer to 30 thanks to that invaluable substance, hydrogen peroxide.
Anyway, I better try to keep this under 2000 words but I have been boosted, encouraged and empowered by the information that originated on this site. Thanks again for a job well done!
Sincerely Smitten, kr"

Loretta from Canada writes, "I wanted to talk a bit about your site. I started researching earthclinic in August of 2007. I was so amazed by what I was reading that I would ignore my msn pals as I would be constantly flipping over to earthclinic. One of the first things that I had already figured out on my own was the BS [Baking Soda], but it was earthclinic that explained the use of BS ‘with’ ACV, lemon, lime or citric acid. The result for me is that from the day I started using this remedy my urinary PH has been around 7. I was surprised because for over 18 months I had been drinking 3 cups of ‘blended’ organic greens daily, with fluctuating PH levels. I’ve since learned the reasons for my 5.5 salvia PH, even though I’ve been following the Oil Pulling remedy. Over time I’ve learned I needed to address my dental problems with additional remedies: aspirin dissolved in water, brushing with xylitol, and H202 mouth rinsing. At this point, I’m not sure what steps will be necessary regarding dental work, but for now, I can raise my saliva PH to 7 with this protocol thrice daily.
As a seasoned CFS/pain/insomniac/and anxious person, my symptoms are many, varied, and extreme. I have confused doctors with periods of acute vomiting/diarrhea/prodtruding liver, periods of acute abdominal swelling, and more. I had started going to naturopaths in 1986, and although this kept me going, due to $$ it was never possible to continue. Also too, I have some medical conditions which could never be found. What a vicious cycle it has been due to the extensiveness of my condition. I opted for a medication free, alcohol free, once a week coffee, and whole food diet in 1998.
One of the things I wanted to say is that I cannot imagine anyone not concluding that the information on this site is health promoting and life saving. The remedies are simple. The cost is low. Any thinking individual can research the supplements and suggestions on the internet, and make an informed decision on the safety of their use. For example, the history and safety on products such as H202, borax (20 Mule Team), EDTA are all available for people to research.
The ‘communist like control’ the pharmaceuticals have over both the doctors and the general public is quite frightening. I can say this with at least some authority, having both extensive personal experience and having worked at a medical clinic. But education from sources such as earthclinic is helping to remove the fear barriers, and people worldwide are starting to exercise their right to use natural remedies, and basic nutrition. We need to become even much more proactive and not let fear stop us from investigating the information coming to us from kind and caring people, who’ve studied and learned and are willing to share their knowledge about the misinformation, and cover-ups, and the fear the FDA and pharmaceuticals are trying to instil on us. We need to ‘pay attention’ to the possibility that (from whatever source…) there are Superbugs that are killing people. We need to unite ‘earthwide’ as equal members of humanity.
One thing I’ve noticed reading earthclinic is that sometimes people seem hasty in providing feedback. The participation is encouraging, but I know from my 20+ years of my own journey, that the body is so complex, most lay people could not understand, the many complexities in our body systems and how even a seemingly simple remedy like BS and ACV can have on the body as a whole. We have to remember that most people who have had years of the standard - well, I speak for Canada here, American diet and medical treatments/medications, that it takes time and patience to see real improvements. When earthclinic repeats words like conservative, one or more days off per week, start slow, just one or two remedies at a time, it is important to listen. We have to understand that we really are what we eat, and we have to cultivate a desire to feed our bodies and mind with the natural whole foods intended for humans. We need to understand marketing and the push to buy packaged food and eat fast foods, and we know the consequences for consuming such products. We have to become moderate in habits, in a world that has become anything but ‘moderate’. We have to slow down, and reflect, and to show appreciation for the kindnesses directed to us, and the help we receive from others.
The more I learn on earthclinic the more I see and realize how powerful vitamins and supplements are. One example I’d like to share is I decided to go to the E.R. after 6 weeks of steady heart and left arm pain that had become more then intolerable. I ingested one Vitamin B Complex and a Natural Vitamin E, while trying to muster up the strength to get dressed and call a taxi. As I sat and waited……low and behold, the pain started lessoning. I kept paying attention to what was going on and feeling relief, I decided a trip to the E.R. was not necessary, and so I learned the powerful effects of simple vitamins. I also believe that it takes time for the body to heal, and that adjustments in a personal Remedy Program are necessary along with moderation in all lifestyle habits. I am noticing slow ‘consistent’ improvements. Writing things down and referring back over the weeks and months is a great help and an empowering tool. It is really quite amazing how we can suffer for years, and not even notice when symptoms decline. I am becoming more and more active, joining in and participating in school, work, and social activities. Recently, there have been multiple stressful events in my life and I seemed to just ‘handle’ each situation with calm and clarity of mind. Just before I left to attend my mom’s funeral, of course I felt anxiety, and stress, and sadness, I simply took my normal supplements of Vitamin B and Amino Acids. Throughout the day long activities I was calm and present, what a difference between this and the other 5 separate funerals I attended over the years for immediate family members. No need for alcohol, Ativan, or the myriads of anti anxiety products from the health food stores. Will I totally recover? I don’t know…..but one thing for sure, I will continue to take responsibility for my body and my health. I will continue to listen to my body, and use the most powerful remedies on the planet…….Ted’s Remedies
And the best thing of all is:
1) I am no longer desperate to buy into the vitamin therapies’ that are so expensive and unnecessary - I actually had an offer from a local supplement company to use their products for a greatly reduced price. I had used the program when I was at my worst health, and it probably did save my life, but I could not go back to products knowing I would be obligated to promote a company that most people can’t afford. And then I found earthclinic………
2) People are starting to ask me questions about health, because they are noticing how healthy I am looking, and I have the privilege to tell them about earthclinic.
Well Deirdre, that’s what has been on my mind, I hope you find something here to encourage you, and I want you to know although I’m not out of the wood’s yet with my health, this is the best I’ve been….and I thank you for the chance to discover some normality to a life that was anything but normal.
You have my permission to use what you like for your earthclinic site.
Thanks, and continued success to you!
Loretta from Canada writes: "In my December '07 email to Earth Clinic I talked about a reduction of heart racing/pain, which was proven by comparing Oct '07 holter tests, with March '08 holter tests, and lot's of tests in between. The specialist at the Arrhythmia Clinic was puzzled with such a drastic improvement in the results, but you see, I had already begun my supplement program from Earth Clinic. For many years, I've been dealing with kidney/liver pain, swelling, increased dizzy/nausea, unable to urinate, yet feel the need, and blood pressure increasing over 45 points. Last September, was my last very serious bout, as I started the PH drink in August, and Ted's remedies in October, which included NO table salt - only grey sea salt. Also, kidney pain is reduced, as shown by the reduction in the use of D-Mannose. The Methylene Blue helps mental and physical energy, reduces dizziness, and even helps sleep! The EDTA helps with moving the lymph's. Also, my iron levels have increased - another first! Let's think about that - less red meat, increased iron....could it be a result of better liver function? After sitting, or getting up in the night I no longer have to use support to walk! Blood sugar is more stable.
I attribute the PH drink to be the most significant remedy, as the process of healing begins with a healthy PH balance.
This Ted who spends so much time helping people - he says, "if you are well, I am happy". He is knowledgeable for sure: I told him my daughter's symptoms, yet she decided to spend $150.00 on a natural path/blood analysis. Guess what? Ted and the naturopath came up with the same health issues, and similar remedies! I know people who quit aspartame, and their acne clears. I have a friend with skin cancer, and decided after getting 2 cut out, that was enough! I referred her to Earth Clinic, and she is healing them with peroxide! Her son (28) had aspartame poisoning as a child, and is using peroxide/baking soda with amazing results. I have friends that (in their 60's) have switched to purer vitamins and Ted's PH drink, and are running even more circles around me. The people that use the remedies on Earth Clinic are feeling better, looking better, and have more pocket money due to the simple, inexpensive remedies, and a reduction in packaged and prepared foods.
But now I have a new issue, that I did not 'fully' realize last year, even though I wrote about it to you! Simultaneously, I have improved health, and knowledge of the North American Union, and Codex Alimentarius, where my research shows that the use of Vitamin and Natural Health Products could be facing severe restrictions! I have friends from Europe who tell me that since the European Union, there are countries that have vitamins available only at the pharmacy, at very low doses, and very very expensive. I've talked to many alternative holistic practitioners locally....most know, some have been involved with lawyers, in an attempt to stop Canada's Bill C51, which is Canada's plan to remove all supplements that do not have a license from the government which is expensive, and almost impossible to get except for single entity vitamins. Some people have even protested outside the local politician offices. Others know, and feel helpless. Can you imagine what my life would be like if I have no supplements? So what about doctors, people might ask? Yes, I have follow-up with my family doctor, genetic's, heart specialist, sleep specialist, and breast specialist. The breast surgeon biopsied, and the diagnosis was uncertain, so I 'wait and see', or have a 'bilateral mastectomy', the sleep specialist confirmed insomnia, but due to what he call's disatrophic effects of pharmaceutical drugs, he offers me more sleep studies, the heart doctor is no longer necessary due to reduction in symptoms (thank you Ted!), the genetics are puzzled, so I have been offered more testing at the National Institute of Health in Maryland, this March of '09 - that's a nail biter.... nervous as to contrast dyes, or any type of injection for the testing.
The reason I have written to Earth Clinic both last year and this year, is to thank you for providing a service where everyone can find simple home remedies to get well, and also to "unite earth-wide as equal members of humanity", attesting to the benefits of natural remedies, and to show unanimous support worldwide, to the necessity of vitamins, and our right to choose for ourselves!
Donations....hmmmm, it has many angles, especially when you compare the different economies. What I decided was what would a local naturopath cost? That's how I make my decision. Personally, I wouldn't like to see a 'site charge', as this is the very thing that distinguishes 'Earth Clinic' from the rest!
So now, I need to thank you - you provide a life saving service, and many are very appreciative. May it be a help to know that Earth Clinic's remedies are far reaching, simple, and effective! I wish you continued success, great health, and many blessings for your labour of love!
Joyce from Joelton, Tn writes, "Keep on having fun while keeping this site going. You may not realize it, but you are also bucking the medical field and probably saving a number of patients lives. There has been lot of airing medical linen in the media over the last twenty or thirty years and has been increasing lately. I remember our instructor telling us about the doctors in N.Y. striking in protest over the increase in their liability insurance rates. Their emergency only-no elective surgery strike only lasted six weeks because instead of the mortality rate rising like they thought it would, the mortality rate dropped during those 6 weeks. Of course the rates went up because of disastrous results & mortality rates in the field. You are always reading about the hospital acquired infections and mistakes made in the hospitals.
I also found a couple of articles in the newspaper during the last 6 months very interesting. One said that a study found that blacks who immigrated to America had better health and outlived blacks born here even though they were more likely to be poor and less likely to see a doctor.
The other article quoted a study finding that in 56% of cases, the patient was misdiagnosed and in the cases that were correctly diagnosed, more than half were given the wrong treatment/ 'Nuff said'. "

Now I just send them the link and they soon are true belivers. thank you, cindy"

Laurin from KC, MO writes: "I am writing to say thanks to Ted who wrote me saying that my problem was probably a calcified pineal gland. I have searched for answers to my insomnia for years spent thousands of dollars for both traditional medical and alternative help and only Ted helped me!!!! I know God allowed me to find this answer through him and I want to say thanks to God, earthclinic and many many blessings to TED! After Ted posted the probable cause, I eliminated ALL fluoride from my life (water, toothpaste, mouthwash, etc.). It is shocking how much of this poison has been put into our products as it is present even in health food store brands. I was already applying Potassium Iodine externally (since I developed an iodine allergy, this is only way I have been able to take it.) I also got a magnetic pillow pad which helps sleep but is also said to help the body detox. Now months later I went out into the bright light and did not enter that hyper alert state. Although I also tried the lime juice and ACV drink, I was not faithful but fortunately what I did was enough. To Ted and earthclinic, you are helping many people and offer a great service to mankind. Thanks again and blessings."
Deborah from Denison, Texas writes: "I have just read the article on MSN titled STUDY: "INJURIES, DEATHS TIED TO CONSUMER DRUGS RISE SHARPLY" I have been a Natural Cure junkie for as long as I can remember and I have always considered myself a guinnea pig. I will try the cures and pass on the information when I am asked. I am the best testimonial because of the diseases I was diagnosed with, but I don't feel that I have any now. I am told that I glow and radiate great health nearly every day by co-workers, friends & family members. I have only taken synthroid for past 14 years and have now been off for the past 4 years. I do what I call my daily health rituals and everyone I know ask me to write all that I do down so that they can benefit from a natural lifestyle. I refer everyone to Earth Clinic and in August I turned 4 young adults onto healthy cures & lifestyles. It is easy to get an older adult to switch because we want to feel better and to this date for 2007 I have 19 converts to natural healthy lifestyles. I will not go into detail but I am an avid believer in cold showers (5 years), oil pulling (2 months), ACV & Baking Soda (26 years) VCO (1 year),Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy (2 months), Hot Lemon Toddy (20 years), Sea Salt Flush (6 months).
I have found other cures such as a tea bag for pink eye and passed this on to Earth Clinic as well. I believe that good colon health is needed to be healthy.We all need to be PRO-ACTIVE INSTEAD OF RE-ACTIVE when it comes to our health. I do not use anything on my body or hair that is not safe to eat and I think that is why I glow. We cannot in this day & time lead a healthy lifestyle all of the time due to outside circumstances such as pollution and over processed food. But we can make our choices and then do what we need to counter these everyday effects. I have my schedule and it does take time but I benefit so much from it that it is now my lifestyle. I hope all can learn to make just a few changes and feel the difference and then pass it on to someone who needs good health."
[email to Ted] Samantha writes, "Dearest Ted, I just wanted to thank you so much for taking the time to reply to my message.

I have incorporated many of your suggestions to improve my son's, as well as my own quality of life. I can tell you that our lives has improved dramatically. Also, I often tell my mom, who lives in Brazil, who, in turn tells her friends and acquaintances, about the various remedies that you have so kindly been passing on. We all appreciate it all very much. I wish you all the best! Thanks again, Samantha"

Pamela from City Withheld, Washington writes: "I have suffered with Fibromyalgia/Rosacea and TMJ for over 10 years... My first symptoms appeared shortly after I began taking Paxil. After about 8 months when I found the Paxil side effects intolerable, my doctor switched me to Prozac. Well...within 2 years, I had gained 75 pound, couldn't get my temperature to a normal 98.6 (it wouldn't budge above 96.6), broke out with a fierce case of Rosacea (skin blistering & pealing in layers off my cheeks), was chronically fatigued and suffered from TMJ symptoms.
After reading the FLUORIDE information on EarthClinc and researching the chemical formulas of the many antidepressants that I had taken over the last 10 years, I had an epiphany...My problem was FLUORIDE!!! Incidentally, the symptoms of FLUORIDE TOXICITY are the same as Fibromyalgia so it wasn't surprising to learn that FLUORIDE is the primary ingredient in MANY widely prescribed antidepressants, including PAXIL and PROZAC!!!
Without delay, I began adding 1/8 tsp of BORAX and 1/8 tsp of NATURAL (UN-bleached) SEA SALT to a liter of
DE-CLORINATED water. This regimine just happens to both neutralize the FLUORIDE and KILL the nasty mites that cause Rosacea.
I began drinking 1 liter per day for 5 days. On the 2 off days, I simply drank purified, bottled spring water.
The results were nothing short of MIRACULOUS, within two weeks my face cleared, the redness faded and best of all, my temperature normalized TO 98.6 and my energy level began to steadily increased. (Do expect the break out to get worse before it gets better as the mites die off.)
In just one month, without dieting or changing my daily routine (other than adding BORAX & SEA SALT to my drinking water), I dropped 4 pounds and I continue to drop weight at about a pound a week. I attribute this to my increased body temperature and elevated metabolism.
ALSO...when I eliminated the FLUORIDE in my toothpaste, my gums stopped swelling and bleeding and all PREVIOUS phantom tooth/jaw pain simply disappeared.
Thank you, EarthClinc and Ted...The information you shared has truely been a blessing in my life...I wholeheartedly encourage anyone that is suffering with FIBROMYALGIA, CHRONIC FATIGUE, TMJ or ROSACEA to try this simple remedy as I have had only POSITIVE results and absolutely NO SIDE EFFECTS!!!
Incidently, this BORAX & SEA SALT water is extremely ALKALINE with a pH between 8 - 9 pH."
EC: We must also express our extreme gratitude to Jason Uttley for the chronic fluoride poisoning link in his article, The Cause of Fibromyalgia.

Kendra Rose from Haiku, Hawaii writes: "I have now been oil pulling for two months both morning and night. Twenty-eight years ago I was exposed to agent orange here in Hawaii from the pineapple fields. It had gotten into the water supply. I have been ill ever since, I especially suffered from migraines. To make things worse I have heavy metal poisoning that is off the charts Two friends put their grandmother's rosaries on me and prayed for me by my request... as I had been feeling so terrible.. kept telling my friends that my blood feels poisoned. That night I found EarthClinic and my prayer was answered. My life has been restored to me. Glory be to Buddha, Marys, Christ, angels and all the Saints! HO!
I have consistent energy. I no longer feel poisoned, my blood feels joyous! I am sleeping so deeply from the very first day I tried it. Now that I feel so good, I understand how deeply sick I've been all this time. My body feels so relieved not to start the day with a toxic overload. A new acquaintance of mine said that since she's known me she can't believe the quality of my skin...
I have tried for over 28 years many modalities, herbal medicines, prescription medicines.. nothing helped me.. I began to feel I was the only person on earth who could not heal... and I'm a healer... I am healing and everyday I am amazed, startled, surprised, delighted that I wake up feeling grrreat! Blessed Be!"
Revonda from Oak Hill, WV writes: "I just want to thank all of you @ Earth Clinic (& Ted, who so graciously returned my e-mails promptly.), for your time & the wonderful contributions you are making to the world!!! I believe I am addicted to your web site. ;o) Initially, I found your site by searching for a natural remedy for my daughter's (16) recurring sinus infections, as med's and doctor's. have not helped, at all. Getting her to drink ACV, baking soda., has not been easy, but I hope I can make her stick w/ it. I have only been using the ACV, baking soda. regularly, for a few days now, so I don't know the outcome, yet. But, I have high hopes. I just BRAVELY did the 'oil pulling', a little while ago. As I am kind of concerned about the outcome (I viewed some of those awful pic's). I have IBS, Gastroenteritis, Ulcerative Colitis, Acid Reflux. I am 40 and have had stomach. problems most of my life. Please say a prayer for me, that I can stick w/ this & tolerate the side effects, as I am sure I will have the MAJOR healing crisis. Lol I have suffered for so very long, hardly ever leaving home & of course, until I found your awesome site, I believed as the dr's said, there is NO cure.
Oh, you are ALL so precious. Thank you, thank you, thank you. It is pretty upsetting to think that there are these wonderful cures for nearly anything and everything and most people will never know it. I am telling everyone I know. although some, cannot keep an open mind., no matter what. ;o) They think I am crazy, but I feel sure, they will realize, in time, when I am all well. ;o) I will post again, with the results. May God Richly Bless You, All!!"
Stephanie from Freeport, USA writes: "First of all, I thank GOD for helping me find your site to try these wonderful remedies! I started out with a sore throat and gargled water mixed with cayenne powder; it helped short term. But then I had a nasty cough (associated with the sore throat), so I drank 2 TBSP of apple cider vinegar throughout the day. It seemed to make my coughs more productive. When I woke up the next day, I hacked up a lot of mucous, and felt like I was getting better. Then I made a pot of tomato tea and I am well again :-) Thank you very much! Your site is a priceless wealth of information."
Laura from Sunderland, Vermont writes: "Thank you for this wonderful site! I started using ACV and Baking Soda about four months ago. My aches and pains are gone, mood more stable and PMS improved. Sleep and energy are much better.
I added Blackstrap Molasses and noticed my appetite decreased, even more improved PMS, even more enery and my flimsy fingernails are growing!
I then added EVCO. My appetite became even more stable! No snack craving, energy all day long, no more caffeine cravings! EVCO also cleared up my ADHD/Perimenopausal fog-brain. I can focus and think clearly again and my memory is better. (this is truly a miracle, some women with ADHD will get worse symptoms as hormones change. It was almost debilitating and forced me to change jobs!) I stopped taking my Ritalin with no negative effects! Overall menopausal symptoms are much improved. It's the best skin care I've ever used!
I added Oil Pulling a few weeks ago. It's worth trying just for gums and teeth. My teeth are whiter, gums stopped bleeding and nasty stains are fading. It also helps with focus and energy and managing my appetite. I have hope that I will finally be successful at losing weight, which has been a life-long struggle (I have 100 lbs to lose) I'll keep you posted on the weight loss.
Thank you everyone for your testimonials! This site is the best ever!"

But about a month ago I came across this site, and started reading your messages on Herpes, l realised that I too have been having a very regular intake of Artificial sweeteners through sugar free gums and drinks, l stopped them immediately and started taking L-Lysine 1000mg a day plus Vitamin C 1000mg per day. modified my diet in a big way, cut out Chocolates wine beers and foods high in Arginine,( as an aside not sure if this is connected but l also suffered from Hay Fever and have a bad cat allergy ) but since starting this regime a month ago my Herpes attacks have stopped dead and my allergies have dramatically reduced still can't quite believe the changes that have happened and am kind of waiting for it to go pear shaped, but if it does I would still be happy with the fact that I have had at least a month in my life without Herpes. l thank you all each and everyone of you involved or who have contributed to this web site, l thank you from the bottom of my heart. keep up the good work."

I've always been skeptical of America and Health Care and this site is the end of Capitalistic Healthcare. I did a search on Autism, and found people looking for answers and posted your cures to the support groups. I then found Yahoo Answers and have been answering peoples health and pet questions always refering them to your website. I've gotten a few best answers from my replies and I'm hoping to drive a lot of people to your website :) hope you see a substantial increase cause it will have a lot to do with my posts.

Jo Ana from Norwich, , CT writes: "For many years, I would wake up at night, with a rapidly beating heart, gasping for breathe, etc. I have tried many remedies and again, over the years had developed high blood pressure perhaps, as a result of poor respiration at night, kidney and gallstones. Minor surgery for an impacted kidney stone and then major infirmities probably as a result of the surgery, antibiotics, HBP meds, and infections. Found your site, and I have started using food-grade H2O2 again orally and through inhalation, also extra virgin coconut oil, iodine, and cider vinegar. Within 2 weeks, HBP gone, no liver/GB pain or distress, and a major increase in energy and a returning sense of well-being. Sleeping through the night like a baby. Please be aware that I tried EDT suppositories and ionic footbaths for relief from toxicity, with only an increase in distress. I credit my body's healing to the H202, cider vinegar, coconut oil, iodine, and coffee enemas to eliminate the toxins. I truly appreciate this website and my return to health, after all these years of less than optimal functioning. I had had a normal body temp of 96.8 for years and after initiated Lugol's iodine footpainting, within this time period as well, my normal body temp is up to 98 from below 97, which is also a really good thing.

Leslie from Washington DC, USA writes: "This is just a comment I just have to make, and I have only looked at a mere portion of your site. I by chance came upon your site yesterday and I think it is absolutely amazing. I have been into alternative health for about 20 years (as an avocation) and I am so impressed with this site. I have seen many wonderful ones but this one is really tops, even the sites of so called experts and I'm not even talking about the more mainstream alternative experts. The comments from your readers are so helpful and this site is put together so well and very user friendly. And the first thing I read from this guy Ted, I thought who is this, he's gotta be some kind of genius. What a blessing! I am amazed that he gives of himself so generously and he has such a wealth to contribute. Well, I will be trying out some of these suggestions from him and others and will get back to you. Really my sincerest thanks to all of you! Leslie"
John writes, "... Thank you so much for your great service to humanity (no exaggeration). This is no small thing. This is the cause people should be donating to. Such a clever way to find cures - to help each other to find natural cures in a network where information is shared and mistakes are not repeated...beautiful...absolutely beautiful work. I still can't believe how well and fast it (h202) worked. I'm amazed. What else is unbelievable is no scarring - such clean work. wow. I'm bewildered this is not common knowledge yet at the same time sadly not surprised. Take care and keep up the great work!!"
Marc from Toronto, Canada writes, "I've been suffering from anxiety and depression for years, and recently I've started to get panic attacks. I finally got motivated to start researching my problem on my own because I've discovered that doctors (at least the ones I've been too) are useless.
I've discovered a lot of useful information on this website, but what really caught my eye is the cold shower therapy. I've never taken a cold shower in my life so I tried it today. Honestly, I've never felt so great. I don't know what it did to me, but I got a terrible fit of the giggles that lasted half an hour. I feel a lot better, and motivated, which is rare for me especially in the morning. I'll keep it up and see what else happens, but I definitely recommend trying it, for whatever reason. And Thank You for this great website!"
Chris from Taranaki, New Zealand writes, "I just want to say thank you for this site and a huge THANK YOU to Ted. Other sites want you to pay for this simple cure (ACV for acid reflux). Where have the days of helping people in need gone? THANKS to Ted and to your site. I am sure a lot of people have been helped, Cheers from Chris in NZ."
Aneeque from Sydney, NSW writes, "thanks FOR THAT. IT REALLY HELPED this little website you have here should expand and let other people know how easy it is to find a remedy for a cure. WE HAVE TRIED OTHER STUFF BEFORE AND IT DIDN'T WORK but this has cured me. THANK YOU VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! "
EC: Aneeque -- we're not sure which remedy you are talking about, but you are welcome!
Emalee from Decatur, GA writes, "After seeing an advertisement for a book on "Hydrogen Perodisde Can Heal What?" I decided to search the web instead of shelling out $$$. Your site is phenomenal with all the info it provides. Thanks so much!!! (I have several medical issues, some of which can be helped by what I have read)"
Marcial from Hayward, CA writes, "Thanks for the Kidney remedies and saving us lots. We really appreciate your free tips. God bless you a lot also in return. Again Thanks."
Adbiel from Grand Cayman, Cayman Island writes, Thank you for your site and for passing on what would otherwise be lost in an ever growing industrial age. I have been feeling some pain in the lower back which exhibits itself especially when I move forward and worse when I am sleeping. I know it is not my back; it is more somewhere near to my back; a tender sort of pain. I suspected it was kidney stones so I did an internet search and came up with another site first. This person had kidney stones and someone told him/her in a pharmacy of a very simple natural remedy freely. I am sure he/she did not pay a cent for it; but now he/she is selling it on that site. What a shame! Thank you for making the difference in many people's lives especially those who can not afford to pay. God Bless You."
Conni from Bainbridge, OH writes, "... I stumbled upon your website and feel like I've died and gone to heaven. It's wonderful. Thank you so much."
Berena from Maywood, IL writes, "It's no coincidence that a friend sent me your site today for a good start of the new year. I will spend days looking into all kind of things. First the ACV, then others. Thank you very much for keeping this going. You are doing a great service. May your new year be healthy, joyful and blessed! B."
D writes: "My father has been taking your lemon-bicarbornate formula for 20 days and also some (little) potassium bicarbonate and citric acid. You remember that the doctor told him he had prostate cancer, his PSA level were extremely high. He also has been taking for three months some pills that the doctor gave him and an injection every three months, a sort of hormone suppressant. Well he just tested and his PSA is normal. The doctor was surprised and told, I quote: "so it was not cancer but just an infection". What I understand from his word that their medicines are not supposed to do this, so I really think it was the lemon-bicarbonate plus potassium that worked, we hadn't even started the cesium yet! Thank you so much Ted, D."
Cindy from Salem, OR writes, "Dear Ted, Thank you, thank you, thank you. I had wrote to you on 11/5/06 about my husband and his throat clearing. This was an problem he has dealt with for around 15 years. I had put him on your ACV/Baking Soda and he added the citric acid also as his ph seems to always be way to high alkaline. It really seems to have worked and after all these years of trying different things. We are still a bit afraid to claim victory. It has been almost 2 weeks of not one bit of problem. It took about 6 weeks for it to kick in and go away. Now I have to say he had days where he took the mixture 5 times and always at least 3 times a day. If he had bugs he wanted them gone !!!! Plus he really likes the taste of this stuff. I wish I could see you to shake your hand and say thanks. DON'T GIVE UP PEOPLE, THIS STUFF DOES WORK !"
Uma from Gibraltar, Spain writes, "I take ACV 2TBS in 8oz water taking sips all through the day. I was bloated all month and had water retention 10 days before my period. I was miserable i tried everything , diet change , pills homeopathic, and my husband is a physician and he gave all kind of medicines but still everything just could not solve my problem. i was annoyed all the time because i do not know what my exact size was and i was restless all the time , never comfortable, in sitting or lying down. Then looking for cure on internet in homeopathy somebody mentioned earth clinic, and i went to the site, and from that day my life changed. After reading about ACV I got up and mix one TS in one glass of water and without thinking i drank it . After 10 minutes my head suddenly clear and then my migraine was gone which I have been having for the last 10 years every week and i do not know how many pandols i have taken for that.----Well for the last 2 months, I am bloat free, water retention free, migraine free, and i am feeling comfortable for the first time in last 10 years. I have lost 10 pounds and I know my exact size now. Plus I had very bad dandruff and hair acne and twice a week I have been washing my hair with ACV and after two months I am free of dandruff and acne. There was no change initially except my migraine was gone but suddenly after one month before my periods i started noticing changes. No bloatedness and water retention and i had lost weight. I am thankful to all of u, whoever started this site. This has truly helped me. My doctor husband cannot believe it.
Just try it. Even if u don't see results initially it will show some benefits, later. I am hooked for life and i am giving it to my teenager son and daughter."
Jason from Sauk Rapids, MN writes, "I have always been a big fan of Apple Cider Vinegar (particularly its almost immediate ability to stop acid reflux) and other natural cures. I am so thankful that this web site is available for reference to the public. I am convinced that America's healthcare costs could be reduced by 90% if people just took care of themselves and used common sense instead of expensive prescription drugs. Keep up the great work!"
Painfree in Oregon writes, "Hello Earth Clinic, Ted and everyone: I wanted to check in and let you know how I am doing. My list shows here how ACV has helped me in the last 10 days.
Dry skin, patches
Hair fall out
Frequent urination/ bladder pain
Lack of energy
Craving sweets and junk food
It has been 10 days and I have not taken any medication for reflux, allergies, or pain. I walk and do my aerobics. I am learning so much about essential minerals; which principal rich food sources contain the most to benefit my health and how they work in my body. Also, which minerals dissolve best in water, which temperatures they are destroyed at and which mineral oxidize rapidly. It is important for me to know since I am choosing to keep a healthy body. I am also learning about how certain vitamins control conditions and also which conditions are caused by a lack of vitamins, which vitamins are fat soluble and water soluble, which are injured by high temperatures, their stability, and how they are stored in the body. I am learning all about how free radicals interfere in the body. I am not looking for how to prolong my life, I am researching so that I can increase my vitality, keep that unwanted bacteria down and live more comfortably. I am probably making the health food stores and grocers aggravated, but along with reading I am learning rapidly how to protect my health and how to build greater tissue cells. I am learning all about carbohydrates, proteins and fats; the richest sources that will promote better breathing, tissue and bone building, energy etc. For me, I am determined now to keep up my health. This wonderful site helped me get started and I am so very thankful that I found it; No one has to be kept in the dark, the information here is wonderful. Help the scientists, help the doctors, and read and learn what they have to offer, and also, check information out for yourself. This site is a blessing for me, and I see by the others who write in, is a blessing to them too. I will be honest to say on the 6th day, I had organic salsa, plain yogurt and crumbled feta cheese with some baked tortilla chips. It was late in the evening, and I was tired and went to lie down. In about 10 minutes, I felt my friend, Acid reflux. I laid there for a moment and thought. Hmm, yes I feel the pain in my chest and my upper back. But I decided to lay there for a little while and just see how my body would respond. In about 15 minutes more, my body returned to normal. I was not worried, because I knew I was just within reach of the AVC. Yesterday, I ate my chip and dip along with my lunch. Bad experiment lol. But anyway, just when anyone of us might think there is no one who cares about others who are in dire need, there we will find there are many, many others who does, than who does not. Thank you Earth Clinic and Ted; ACV and ECT rocks!!! Hugs from me to you and all, love from me, Painfree."
04/20/2008: Painfree from Salem, Oregon updates us: "I can still remember that evening when I was in so much pain. I could not lie down at all. On several occasions I have had to brace myself up against the wall to keep straight so I could handle the excruciating pain from my naval up underneath my chin. I would try not to swallow because when I did the pain was hard to bear. Yes, I had been examined and I was told I had a condition called acid reflux. One night when I was in pain I felt a hard knot right between my breast-bone, it scared me, I thought it was a tumor. That enlargement is what took me to the doctor that next morning. At first the pills prescribed to me had worked, not completely, but enough so that I could function in my day to day living. But soon my lower esophageal sphincter, that muscular door that usually closes was not keeping shut and the things I ate and drank moved backward into my esophagus from my stomach. A condition called a Hiatal hernia had allowed food and drink acids to back up into my esophagus and gave me extreme heartburn and chest pain. I am writing again to say that it was on that one blessed night of 11/9/2006 that Earth Clinic had saved me from surgical repair. Thank you again and again. ACV really works for me. I have not had pain for one year, six months and eleven days (18 months, 11 days.) Today’s date is April 20, 2008. I have never had to undergo surgery. My hair is full and shining, my skin is moist, my health is great and I am still sleeping the full night long. Yes, it is a YEA, and as I had said in the year of 2006 I must say it again: "God bless this site and its creator (s), amen, and amen."
Tana from Baton Rouge, LA writes, "I was enlightened tremendously by this wonderful site. I had been desperately searching for a site for another problem and saw there was a section on acid reflux. When I clicked on it and started reading comments I saw the information about ibuprofen causing acid reflux. This has been a MAJOR problem for myself for many months ending up in a hospital emergency room twice still not sure of the cause. When I read these comments I became positive ibuprofen was the culprit. I was taking the max dose daily for herniated disc pain. When I feared the ibuprofen was possibly a cause I stopped taking it, feeling immediate relief. Thank you so much for letting me know that I'm not crazy. Tana"
Abigail from Ypsilanti, MI writes, "I suffered from boils for over 20 years after being told by doctors to use hot, moist compresses to help heal faster. No doctor prescribed antibiotics even after blood tests revealed an extremely high white blood cell count. I was finally referred to a dermatologist in May of 2005 when my blood cell count was so high it was causing fatigue among other problems. I was diagnosed with hidradenitis superative and was told only antibiotics would make the boils heal and they couldn't guaranteed it would go away permanently. I spent over a year on 2 different antibiotics and every time I stopped using them the boils came back. I've been on the turmeric for a week since the newest outbreak which included over 16 boils total. I now only have 3 actual boils and some purple spots where boils were beginning to develop but are now going away. I was told by my doctors that I would spend the rest of my life on antibiotics. Thank you for giving me hope. I can now live my life pain free. Thank you!"
Lynette from Edwardsville, IL writes, "For the past year, I have been suffering from severe headaches, my heart would beat extremely fast just from standing up, and dizziness. I knew that it was serious when my head was hurting so bad one day that I went to lie down and woke up almost 15 hours later. I found this website while looking for a cure for gout for someone else. I sent them the information and then began to read the other parts of this site. After my reading, I wrote out a list and I went to the health food store immediately after work. I have been taking the mixture of the water with ACV, liquid garlic, cayenne pepper and blackstrap molasses for a week now. For the first time in a year, I am feeling so much better. My heart rate has slowed. My headaches are gone. I am using the bathroom on a regular basis now and I am not sleepy all of the time. I am also taking multi-vitamins. Thank you for this wonderful website!"
Candice from Victorville, CA writes, "I just wanted to send you guys a little email; that expresses my appreciation. I am so thankful for your website. I am addicted to it...hahaha! I have been looking up cures for everything!!! I have shared your website with family, friends and co-workers! I LOVE it! Thank you so much, once again, for having this amazing website! Candice"
Kevin from Barbado writes, "I've been reading articles and I kept movin from one to the other. Excellent site. Please keep up the good work."
Sasha from Chicago, IL writes, "I tried the ACV and cold shower cures. I cannot thank this website enough for this valuable information! I am overjoyed at my bodies results from taking apple cider vinegar!!! I am definitely overjoyed!!! I have real medical problems (Gastritis, Degenerative Disc Disease) and I have had real progress. My stomach doesn't bubble any more. Before taking the acv, I had constant problems with a queasy feeling. Not any more! I was told I would wind up in a wheelchair because of the disc disease and have been hospitalized for it before. I have experienced extreme pain from it over the last 2 years and it seemed to be getting worse. Now I don't have any pain at all. I don't know if this is a cure for it but I can bend and stretch again! Amazing! I was scared that my back would give out on me but it didn't and I am not in pain. I can do crunches now with out fear. You don't know the quality of life you gave me back. I feel like a kid again. Thank you all and God Bless you!"
Lis from Paterson, New Jersey writes, "I think this website is amazing. All of the comments and testimonials are inspirational and motivational to start a natural cure."
Lee from NY writes, "ASPARTAME SIDE EFFECTS: Thank you for your wonderful website. I am a 52 y.o. male and started having strange symptoms about 4 months ago. It is very difficult to explain except to say that I had a sensation of a heavy head. This was accompanied by a low grade headache, dizziness and occasional nervousness and anxiety. After I suffered with these symptoms for about 2 months I went to a doctor and scheduled a CT scan. Meanwhile, I tried to research my symptoms on the Internet but had a hard time finding anything for a "heavy head." If I didn't think I was dying of a brain tumor or had something seriously wrong with me, it would have been funny. The scan came back normal and I was relieved that I wasn't dying. It had to be something else. Then I stumbled across information on aspartame and it finally dawned on me -- everything made sense. I had started drinking about 2-3 bottles a day of Diet Snapple several months ago. My symptoms gradually crept up on me and I didn't pay much attention. But when the lingering headaches never went away and I was plagued with dizziness and anxiety, I knew there had to be something in my system. I studied and researched more and discovered a tremendous amount of evidence linking aspartame with nervous disorders and the exact symptoms I was experiencing. Well, I stopped ingesting aspartame immediately. From what I read, it would take a long 2 months for it to leave my system. I could feel my body trying to expel it through my nose when I felt intense pressure there, similar to a sinus infection (which by the way, I was checked for and was found to be normal.) Anyway, it's been several weeks after I stopped taking aspartame and I am completely well. I've learned several things from this experience, including it is very difficult for a person make a connection between their symptoms and aspartame -- who would ever think that the Diet Coke in front of them is causing their headache or all sorts of other problems? Secondly, doctors, though well intentioned, are not asking the very first question they should ask patients who are complaining of these mental symptoms. The question out of their mouths in the examining room should be, "Are you consuming any diet beverages or foods?" Third, the next time I complain of a heavy head feeling, I won't have to listen to my wife say, "Maybe you need stronger neck muscles." Haha Again, thank you for your website and the wonderful forum you provide for people to share their experiences."
