I don't have your symptom but I can say I have had plenty of weird going on in my life. I have battled an abscess of one sort or other in my mouth for 20 yrs. Had all dental work done and more problems started. Finally I gave up on dental work. This week it went out of control with emotional issues . swelled up, throbbed . I threw the sink at it, Nothing worked. I'm like felix the cat and have many tricks in my bag. I have used castor oil hexane free for liver pain for years....helps so much. Well I coated my face about 5 x during the night and put a towel over my face and tried to sleep. Next day it improved and did it again the next night. I can't feel any pain when I press on skin near abscess today. I plan to keep applying solution . Maybe a miracle will attack me in the night and I'll wake up with new teeth and healthy gums. God is good even when all hell is breaking loose. A season to be THANKFUL . Hope you get relief.

Perhaps there are different varieties of charcoal for cooking. The only ones I know of are NOT suitable for internal use.

Charcoal used for medicine needs to be activated (purified.) I give activated charcoal to my children - 1 capsule a day with 6 ounces of water as needed.

Castor Oil Seems to Be Softening and Soothing LS

I have been using organic castor oil on myself for a week for LS. It has softened the rough patches of skin. Also, it tends to soothe the irritation. My Gyno said 2 days ago that it hasn't disappeared, but it is not getting worse. So, I figure that is a step in the right direction.+.

Question About Serrapeptase If You Have Metal Implants

Wed, 22 Nov 17 16:14:47 -0800
Posted by Liz T. (Boston, Massachusetts) on 11/21/2017

This is not a post. This is a question if I may please. In your article entitled: "Natural Remedies for Abdominal Adhesions, " the author suggests using Serrapeptase, unless you have any implants. I just had a total knee replacement surgery, and the scar tissue is on my knee. I now have two metal parts in my knee. Could someone please tell me if Serrapeptase would disintegrate metal, or was the author of the article referring to mesh or plastic or some other material? Please kindly let me know.

Thank you,

Are you doing something for the parasites? Diatomaceous earth or garlic maybe? I don't think the eczema will heal as long as parasites are there expelling toxins. Charcoal should help to remove the toxins while you are getting rid of parasites.

I am experiencing the exact same thing, except mine feels like corn is always stuck in between the back of my lower teeth and gums.

I often cannot sleep due to this ailment. (I’m typing this at 1:44AM.)

Like you, I’ve been to many doctors with no help. My dentist has flossed, scraped, and basically done everything to try to provide me relief. Sadly, nothing has helped. What‘s even stranger is that not one doctor is able to see it. This has been bothering me for over 2 years. PLEASE let me know if you have found a solution that worked for you. I plan to try every suggestion on this site.

Thank you for sharing your problem. It helps to know I’m not crazy and not alone.

Good luck and take care.

This is a dangerously uninformed post. Ablation is sometimes the best option for some people. There are several types of ablation therapy - radiofrequency ablation being the least invasive and least likely to cause damage to heart tissue. But, as with any operating room procedure, it is only as effective as the doctor performing the procedure.

I have a mild form of paroxysmal fibrillation which I have been able to control thus far with proper hydration, yoga, potassium and magnesium supplements and cutting back on caffeine. However, I have a nephew who had a severe, debilitating a-fib problem which sent him to the hospital on numerous occasions with chest pain, nausea and weakness. His problem was corrected through ablation almost 30 years ago, and he has never had another recurrence. This procedure was a blessing for him. The post-procedure weakness you mentioned is probably due to the anesthesia in the operating room - not a result of the procedure itself.

Apple Cider Vinegar for Gerd and, Unexpectedly, Weight Loss

Wed, 22 Nov 17 08:54:31 -0800
Posted by Paul (Nj) on 11/22/2017
5 out of 5 stars

I have lost lost 8 pounds in 2 months (173 to 165). I am not taking apple cider vinegar for weight loss, but because my doctor believes I have low stomach acid. My GERD symptoms have all but stopped also. I take about a table spoon (sometimes two for larger meals or if they have meat) before each meal. I sometimes take pills with 600mg ACV if the bottle isn't handy. I may need to stop the ACV if the weight loss continues, which is a shame because the GERD is the real issue.

In reply to Jennifer (Fl),

Hi Jenniffer,

With colloidal silver, ppm is just one way to describe how much silver is in an actual liquid suspension. It probably would be less confusing to just say how many milligrams of silver are in a given amount of the liquid suspension, but manufacturers have chosen to use parts per million instead of milligrams. Most other supplements use milligrams and this is easily understood with minimal confusion for consumers. For example, a one liter bottle of 10 ppm colloidal silver contains 10 milligrams of silver, a 500ml bottle of 20 ppm CS contains 10 milligrams of silver, a 250 ml bottle of 40 ppm CS contains 10 milligrams of silver and a 125 ml bottle of 80 ppm CS also contains 10 milligrams of silver. So these four examples will all deliver 10 milligrams of colloidal silver per bottle, even though they are all different parts per million. Based on available studies and the average amount of blood in the adult human body it can be roughly estimated how many milligrams of silver need to be taken per day in order to achieve an effective dose. The amount of milligrams of silver per dose is what is important, so when people say they take 5 teaspoons of silver three times per day, it doesn't mean much, unless they also say what the parts per million is, whereas if they say they take 5 milligrams of silver three times per day, it is clear that they are taking 15 milligrams of silver total per day and there is no need to use parts per million.

If a person already has 20 ppm colloidal silver, but would prefer to have 10 ppm colloidal silver, they just need to add an equal amount of distilled water to their 20 ppm silver and they will have 10 ppm colloidal silver.

To get the best effect for topical use, keeping the topical application (dressing) wet or moist is very effective for rapid healing and neutralizing most types of pathogens .


Honey for Healing of Wound With Grit

Honey for Healing of Wound With Grit

I recently went on holiday to Thailand with the family and thought my health kit was well stocked. I had tea tree oil and Vicks for bug bites and repellant, also tto is antiseptic, magnesium malate for magnesium and as an apple cider vinegar replacement, Olive leaf for antibiotics should anyone develop sickness, a wholefood multi vitamin to replace the many tablets I use at home, borax for laundry and head to toe body wash inc teeth brushing (add water) rosehips for wholefood vitamin c, beet root for my husband's blood sugar, kids organic multivitamin and melatonin for sleep assist with the added benefit of gut health. I thought I had every situation covered! Until I fell in the street (narrow foot path) directing all sorts of filth into the soft part of my inner ankle and foot. I had twisted my ankle in the fall as well but did not realise for a few days.

Not in much pain but embarrassed and bloody, I returned the short walk to the hotel and passing the bar collected some salt. In the room I soaked my foot in the salt and water, cleaning it was difficult it now hurt sooo much and to my dismay I saw grit embedded in the wound. I hobbled to the couch whereas before treatment I was walking normally, albeit slowly, the attention I had paid to my injury had been rewarded with large pain increase. I applied the tto oil and researched poultice that I could access in Thailand. If I was at home there would be at least twelve plants in my garden I could use for this purpose, my husband calls some of them weeds. I could have really used one of Mama's charcoal poultices!

I found that honey could be used as poultice which I was not confident of but thought at least it has healing properties, so when hubby and kids returned from foot massage (! ) I asked him to get the purest honey they had at the chemist. I applied the honey, covering with tea bag wrapper (limited supplies) so it wouldn't stick to the wound, and a sock to hold it in place. I rested it by having a few days just watching the kids in the pool. Twice a day I applied the honey, I didn't have to touch the tender skin which was a plus, just plopped the honey on it till it was covered. The grit was still there though, but I couldn't touch it still and would not allow my husband to either.

When the wound scabbed over I was a little concerned because I knew the grit had not come out, but I had put my faith in the healing properties of the honey. I stopped applying the honey once the scabs formed. Couple weeks later when the scabs came off, the skin was pink and healthy. I guess that as much as I thought I was prepared you cannot prepare for everything, but EC got me through.

Thanks for this post, Helen. I have two heel spurs on my left foot along with plantar fasciitis,, haven't had trouble for over ten years but now back with a vengeance, after weeks of gardening in rubber boots. Have new orthotics etc, arnica, turmeric tablets, apple cider vinegar aspirin (can't have anti inflammatories) massage, stretching etc. so will give the castor oil a go.

Hello Jennifer,

About your appreciation of colloidal silver; I completely agree. I have been using it for about 25 years, and within the past 3 years, I use it on a daily basis to keep overall viral load low.

One point you need to expand on; when you asserted that "less is more" ppm believing that 10 ppm is "smaller" than a larger ppm amount, like 50 ppm. But ppm has nothing to do with particle size. Ppm means that there are 10 parts per million of Ag atoms (atomic weight at 47). And if the atom is an ion, then the electron count is 46. So if a CS maker produced a product with 10 ppm, then the size of the atom is unaffected....there are just less atoms of Ag ions in the liquid.

Now there are many views of CS making, so if you would like to correct me, I am always open to new information. But it would be helpful to have a strong source for the assertion that "less" ppm means the size of the particle (atom) is smaller.

Blackstrap Molasses for Heart Palpitations

Posted by Hilary (Va) on 11/21/2017
5 out of 5 stars

Molasses works great for my heart palpitations. But I am convinced there is more to it than just the potassium. I eat a healthy diet, take vitamin supplements and drink coconut water, which is higher in potassium than molasses. But during one particularly bad day of many lengthy atrial fib episodes (and 2 glasses of coconut water), I tried 1Tbs of molasses in hot water. Before I was finished with the cup, my a-fib was gone. I will continue taking the molasses every day. It's far better than what my cardiologist wants me to do.

I've used the gold ring trick on sties in the past & it worked every time.. However.. It was always yellow gold in the past. Now I'm grown & married & don't wear yellow gold & neither does my husband.. & of course I now have another internal stye on the inside of my lower lid. Fml. 😑

Sooooo.. I came here to see if anyone could shed some light as to weather there's a difference as far as this remedy goes (between white & yellow gold).. Of course alllll the comments are just saying "gold".. so I thought, Wth? Maybe gold is just gold. Can't hurt to try.. I've been suffering with this thing for 3 days already.. Sooooo.. I just now went n washed the bajesus out of my wedding rings & rubbed one of them on the stye for a few minutes. Hopefully it works the same as the yellow gold has in the past. Fingers crossed! I'll try to remember to update my results later.

But as of rt now.. I did the thing about 10 minutes ago.. Maybe I'm crazy.. But it seems to already feel a bit better. YAAAY! I'm remaining hopeful.
