My story is very similar to yours, except my PD persisted for 3 years! I'd have a breakout every 3-4 months (that only responded to Doxycycline, but it would always return.) I was at a loss all that time because everything I used on my body was as near to homemade as possible and I put very few, if any, unnatural substances on my body. My diet is much healthier than most as well.

Well, pure serendipity brought me to a dermatologist with a personal opinion... "Stop with the coconut oil already! " I made my own toothpaste with it, my bar soap had it as it's second ingredient, my moisturizer was pure coconut oil, and I took 1tbsp of it each day in my coffee. It's then that I realized that PD started shortly after switching to pure coconut oil for my face moisturizer.

What?????!!! So simple yet I overlooked it because I thought, "it's natural and unrefined. It couldn't be that."

I was wrong.

Castor Oil for Bartholin Cyst Helped to Avoid Surgery

Bartholin Cyst:

I used just castor oil not even on a pack. Just repeatedly applied it throughout the day maybe 4 times or more depending on when I went to the toilet. My cyst had got so big and infected it was going to need surgery to have it removed. It had gone solid. It couldn't be drained. I took antibiotics the doctor gave me for 2 weeks and used garlic, tea tree and salt sits baths for 3 weeks with next to no change... but pain had lessended. then I decided I had 2 options... castor oil or cbd oil. I read that also works well.

The moment I got home from being told I needed surgery I started applying castor oil and stopped the other treatments. (I was trying everything too, Apple cider vinegar which burnt me. Turmeric packs, silica and raspberry leaves. As well as the sits baths and hot flannels) I also had to deal with thrush from antibiotics which I cured with creme and natural yogurt.

Within 3 days of starting the castor oil it went down dramatically and after a week it almost went. It still hasn't completely returned to normal after but I'm in no pain and don't need surgery anymore. It's less then a pea now. Even if it stays like this it's still 100 times better then the plum size it was before. I also noticed my emotional well being had a part to play in the healing process. When emotional or over whelmed it would be uncomfortable and seemed to be inflammed again or more. But when happier and in a good energy space I seemed to heal better and faster. I hope this helps in anyways or I hope you find a remedy that works for you. Xx

BHT Prevented Flu From Plane

On my flight back to LA last Friday, a guy sitting next to me started sneezing in the middle of the flight. He must have sneezed about 8 times in a row and instead of covering his mouth with his hand or sleeve, he just turned and sneezed right into the aisle!! Ahhhhhh!!!! I know!!! I could tell he had the beginnings of a virus after that (he had that particular virus smell, ugh) and I thought to myself that all the passengers near him including myself were going to get sick in 48 hours! Sure enough, exactly 48 hours later on Sunday afternoon I started to get those telltale joint pains all over my body, beginnings of a nasty virus. I immediately took 1/2 of a BHT capsule in a glass of water. Joint pain disappeared in about an hour. 24 hours later (yesterday) I felt very slight joint pains again and took another 1/2 of a BHT capsule and again the joint pain disappeared. Happy to report, I feel great (except for an ongoing sinus issue from my a/c unit leakage)... 

BHT has become my new "go to" virus remedy. Thankfully, I have not gotten sick in a couple of years because I nip any virus in the bud with 1/2 BHT capsule each time.

I am ever grateful to Oscar from Syracuse for writing about BHT in posts on Earth Clinic dating back to 2008. I never would have tried it otherwise. Thank you, Oscar!!!

Trying Bleach Soaks for Stubborn Toenail Infection

Tue, 19 Sep 17 09:54:48 -0700
Posted by Erika (Hawaii) on 09/18/2017

My history with fungus started 6+ years ago. The infection was acute and was on the nails on both big toes. I went to a podiatrist who removed what remained of both nails and told me to use vinegar at home. At the time I was in a residential treatment facility and had no access to vinegar for the 3 months. Now the new growth about mid-way was reinvented and for the next 5 years was this tug of war with the infection. I used vinegar soaks every night for a month with hardly any improvement. I even used straight the distilled vinegar and no success. I was using bleach soaks with moderate success and stopped after the third try. Well, guess what? It seemed like the fungus built up an immunity to bleach and came back with a vengeance! That pic is what it looks like now. I am going to try the bleach but won't stop it until I know for sure it's been eradicated. I ordered colloidial silver with a high ppm number to use that am/pm. I will update my progress ( hopefully ) and include pics. Wish me luck!

Wow! I wish I had known about ACV as a cure for molluscum. I had a 1 cm growth that my dermatologist cut out TWICE, as it grew back with a vengeance. I read that I could try a dab a day of ACV and the entire thing disappeared in a couple of weeks! No more cuts and digging the root of the virus...not to mention the $388 I paid for the doctor's care! Amazing results.

ACV- Not regular applecider vinegar. It should be Raw. The label will have 'With the Mother' on it and it is unfiltered . Regular Apple Cider Vinegar has most of the nutrients stripped out. When using Raw ACV, be sure to shake it vigorously immediately before use.

  Re: Help Needed on Understanding How to Take Methylene Blue

All the formulas for breaking down Methylene Blue 2.3% caused nightmares of high school math & science, resulting in an Excedrin PM headache lol. I took the info everyone provided and it averaged to be 1 part 2.3% MB : 22 - 23 parts distilled water.

Still afraid to try it, I called a friend of a friend who's a chemist - he said 1 part MB to 23 parts water. (The K--don is 2.3% water solution, zinc free.) I hope this helps!

Hi Bill,

Sorry, I was out of town last week and didn't get a chance to respond to your post. Thank you for the tips. I am very glad your sinus issues and vision improved with peroxide! I haven't ever tried a 1.5% peroxide squirt for sinus issues. I usually do 1 teaspoon of sea salt and 1/8 teaspoon of 3% peroxide in a neti pot.

Yep, I was also thinking of Legionnaire's Disease when I was cleaning up the black water on my carpet from the a/c unit! I pulled up about 1/2 gallon of black water from the carpet using my carpet cleaner. I will have the a/c unit cleaned asap or see if I can do it myself. It's one of those large portable units on wheels. I still wake up with a minor sinus reaction even though I have not been running the a/c unit for days now. I did spray down the carpet and bed cover with the borax and peroxide solution that Art from CA mentioned recently. Thankfully, the peroxide did not lighten my light gray carpet, at least not that I can see. But I only misted the surface.

On the subject of the borax and peroxide remedy - yesterday was day 5. I'm going to take a break for two days as Ted always recommended. I added it to a 1 liter thermos of hot Matcha green tea. Tastes great!

Tip: Matcha powder is expensive, but I found Matcha powder in the superfoods section at Sprouts that was very reasonably priced for the quantity you get.

 Re: Seeking Remedies for Diabetic Retinopathy

Rw: Read into the category of Diabetes or Diabetic Neuropathy for more info.

For now, my favorite first remedy for Eye health is Magnet Therapy. Place a refrigerator magnet over each eye for up to an hr each day; this will remove bad energy (which is the anatomy of all disease) and the inflammation accompanied with the Retinopathy.

Next take a supplement of:

Taurine 500mg 1x daily

Alpha Lipoic Acid 300mg 1x daily

Lutein & Zeaxanthin 1x daily

Herbal Combo of Eyebright & Billberry

Many health-food or otc nutritional supplement retailers carry a comprehensive list of many of the above in one easy-to-consume product, so try to find one with as many or all these, or can buy each in higher dosage in single product.

This will help reduce the Retinopathy much but you will need to begin reversing the diabetes soon after for a lasting cure or continue all the bad side effects of diabetes.

Post back here with your response and progress.

I do not have cancer that I know of, but I have started the 35% FGHP, just two drops in a glass of water once a day. I'm hearing of the people that are having a hard time with 10-15 drops, I would say just start with one or two. It's powerful stuff.

LDN Helping Multiple Viruses and Menopause Symptoms

After reading your article on low dose naltrexone I just wanted to share that after testing positive for human parvo virus, HH6, and cytomegalovirus I was so tired every day and all of my major joints hurt. I was told by a Dr. in Florida that 80% of people diagnosed with fibromyalgia or CFS, have at some point had fifths disease. In any event he recommended LDN and I was more than willing to try anything.

The first week was so bad that I had to stop taking LDN 4.5 mg. I did not feel any better and some days the brain fog was unbearable. A few days after stopping I realized I was actually getting better and thought to myself it had to be the late effects of the LDN. I hadn't felt that good in several months.

I started back on LDN taking 1/2 of a 4.5mg tab nightly and the results were amazing!!! Within a few weeks I was back to myself. Even better than I was prior to getting sick. I tried stopping the LDN and within a few weeks all of my joint pain was back as well as the extreme fatigue.

I was also pleasantly surprised to realize that while I was on the LDN my night sweats from menopause were controlled as well. I hadn't realized it until I'd stopped taking LDN how much it was helping my mood and night sweats!!!

Needless to say I have had amazing results and can not imagine ever being without it. Recently I had to stop taking it again for several weeks because I was having surgery and I knew I would need to take Percocet for pain after my surgery. I was hoping that once I stopped the LDN I would just stay off it even when I was done with the pain medicine. Just because who wants to rely on a pill if it's not necessary. Well within three weeks I was waking up dripping wet from night sweats and all of my joints were aching again! I remember coming home from my work out one night and thinking OMG I can't believe how awful I feel again!!! I immediately started back on my LDN 4.5 mg at bedtime and once again joint pain, night sweats and chronic fatigue gone!!!!

I am so grateful for this drug!!! I can not imagine where I'd be without it.

Iodine Side Effects

I plan on starting the Borax treatment- I have RA, allergies, An Autoimmune disease. Whatever.

6 mo ago, I started iodine therapy- did whole protocol- salt, vit. B's, everything for my thyroid. I gained 25 lbs! in 1 month. This is not an exaggeration. I cannot get it off. So I am hoping the Borax will get rid of the chronic fatigue etc. I had no BO on the iodine but I sure plumped up. Any idea why? Especially since it's supposed to help the thyroid, which is why I had put on weight before and had no energy?

How long did it take to burst?

Ammonium Chloride for Jock Itch:

Dear readers, since I've got a lot of help on this web site, I'd like to share my success story with getting rid of this nasty and persistent fungus for good. This is actually a cure not just a treatment. I've tryied pretty much everything that's listed here plus many more. I've tried whatever I heard might help with jock itch. Had it for several years and anybody how's been in that situation knows how annoing it is. Hence the reason I am writing this to help others. The only thing that actually cured my jock itch was ammonium chloride. Dissolve one leveled tea spoon of ammonium chloride in about 50ml of water, put in a spray bottle and spray the affected area liberally twice a day. Don't dry it up. Let it dry by itself. Do it until simptoms disappear usually a few days to a week it depends how bad your condition is and continue for a couple of week afterwards. That's it. This will cure your jock itch, not just temporary releaf. And its widely available and it costs 50 cents. Good luck and God bless you all.

EC: For those wishing to learn more about the use of ammonium chloride in medicine:

Nora, I had them as well. Here is a cheap way you can take care of them. I am an herbalist and I tried everything natural that I could find, all to now avail. I ordered many things on the internet and most helped, but didn't truly eradicate the critters. Here are a few things I would suggest. First and foremost MUSTARD SEED POWDER. It's very cheap and you can use 1 teaspoon in 1 teaspoon of water and then wash your hair in that by putting some shampoo in that amount, just enough to wash your hair. Leave it in for a 20 minutes, ideally. Also, put that same mixture of water and mustard powder in your cream rinse so that it stays in your hair. Next, put some plain powder in a nontoxic cream that you can apply to your arm. It will burn, but if it's too strong, just add a little more cream and not as much mustard powder. But leave that on your arms and face. If it burns too much, then wash it off and dilute it a little more. Try to endure just a little bit of burn, though. That burn is killing off the bugs. Next thing is start chopping/mincing up about 10 cloves of garlic each day and put them in a jar. Every time you pass by the jar, take a teaspoon/tablespoon of the garlic and swallow it with water. No need to chew. Use that each day to keep pathogens out of the inside of your body. Next, buy some GRAPEFRUIT SEED EXTRACT (GSE) from the health food store. Use that to wash around your trach area and keep that clean. If you have tape around the area, apply the GSE to the outside of the tape. Also, wash your hands meticulously any time you handle the trach. With the Mustard see, you shouldn't have the mites for long. I had the most difficult to cure, the red bird mites, and the mustard seed finally came along upon the advice of others. PRAISE GOD!!! Keep the faith and remain in prayer to fully overcome these critters. God bless you. Don't get step at a time.
