Advice after 18+ years of Fibro treatments and remedies
I have compassion for all those who are going through pain and am here to lend some helpful information that I learned on my journey of health.
A little background, I developed pain in all parts of my body that came on strong and for no reason in my early 20's. I would rest and eat healthier but it would take weeks to go away and then return under normal circumstances. I saw a doctor and they offered no help other than pain killers. So, I started doing yoga and dietary changes and that helped some. I started taking Epsom salt baths and that helped more. But I still had pain and fatigue and so I saw a multitude of doctors, chiropractic, allopathic, naturopathic, holistic, TCM and others. I even went to live in a Yoga ashram for 2 years and ate most every type of diet including vegan, vegetarian, paleo, and other food combinations. I have tried most every remedy here and can say they all helped me in some way, but I still had pain. So, I have learned how to heal myself with the following things, but the pain comes back when I don't live a healthy balanced life.
Here are the common ones that helped me and then later some that are not mentioned here:
First, I eat mostly fresh organic foods and exclude toxic foods. It also helps when I am sleeping well, laughing often and letting go of the past. Exercise is mandatory for my health as is drinking lots of pure water. After those here is what helped me most.
1) Epsom salt bath with essential oils and candles. This will help manage the pain more than most anything else. The body is full of toxins and needs to be cleaned in salt water. Best taken alone in clean, chemical free water with 2-4 cups of salt. Use Epsom salts, baking soda, sea salt and others. Add a few drops of 1-3 different essential oils, use your personal favorites, I like bergamot and cedar. Place at least 4 candles around the tub with 1-2 at each corner, I use 8 of the tall glass church candles and don't leave this part out!!! Do 2-4 times a week and spend at least a half hour in the tub, but 1-2 hours is better. Listening to music and practice deep breathing.
2) Talking a walk in Nature to clam the mind and rebalance the stress response. Enjoying natural beauty is the key to any health issue and often left out. Ground with bare feet is awesome and though it may not fee like much at first, it will increase in benefit over time.
3) Trying only one new remedy at a time. Only introduce one thing per week or even better per month and test to see if it noticeably changes your health. This is very important and must be followed to know what works and what does not. Otherwise it will all be confusing and moat likely never be clear what helps and what hurts. This was recommended by a wise old doctor and totally helped me to take control of my own health journey.
Good luck and keep going, it will get better for you soon.
Good afternoon. I just finished reading Bill Thompson's killing so sweetly book. I wanted to know how to exactly take the things he recommends exactly. For example, he says when taking the iodine to make sure to take the companion nutrients. However, it doesn't tell exactly how much of each companion nutrient to take. I also have a few other questions on the protocols like for example: The alkalizing protocols in the book shows the different protocols. Does this mean I just have to do one of them in that section or all them? Thank You
Had I found this remedy sooner, I'd have saved myself a lot of heartache and not spent so many years feeling insecure. Antibiotics do not work. Don't stick anything in your vagina cause it still has to come out causing more discharge than BV.
CHANGE YOUR DIET!!!
Eat yogurt daily or drink buttermilk or drink kefir. Take vitamins and/or eat fruit daily.
Kill BV with a mixture of 70% of 3% hydrogen peroxide/30% bottled water douche, twice daily (every twelve hours), for five to seven days (which is the same duration of any medication you would be prescribed).
Douche using the same mixture once after unprotected sex and again in twelve hours for peace of mind.
I suffered from BV for at least two decades, trust me. You will not be sorry. You will feel like a new woman! God bless.
Hello ladies, I'm a naturalist and believe in holistic approaches first. Disclaimer: there may come a point where the infection may be out of control so you need to go see OBGYN right away. First I will say everyone is different, our bodies and our lifestyle makes a huge impact on the Vagina. Most ladies misdiagnose themselves which leads to more problems. It's important to know what you dealing with to treat it properly.
With that being said one of the best and quickest cures for Yeast and Bacteria is boric acid. It's important that you use quality boric acid and the correct dosage otherwise you will not get any relief.
Also, another cure all is ACV (diluted) and sea salt. Never ever douche, either use suppositories or tampons soaked in the solution or take a sitz bath (twice a day). ACV does take a little longer to cure but it helps with any itching. I will also add tea tree oil is similar to ACV. None of these cures will work if you do not concentrate on your internal body.
Eating healthy, drinking water, cutting down on alcohol and sweets will make a tremendous difference but also adding vitamins. A vitamin that acts as a hormone that over 60% of the population is lacking is D3 and one of the many symptoms of vitamin D3 deficiency is BV.
Also, it's good to add folic acid and calcium. A good multi-vitamin would be helpful everyday regardless if you have an infection. I guarantee if you start with prevention first you will not experience either infection and if you do it will be minor and will clear up within a week using the above methods. Lastly, be careful what you put into your vagina, you can cause more havoc then the original infection, one being vagina dermatitis similar to eczema from which so many products have stripped, dried and cause an infection of the actual skin.
I'm 34 years old asian female with rapidly greying hair that was brought on by emotional stress. My grey hairs are all over the top and sides of my head; I'm about 10-20% grey now. It's not common for my ethnicity to grey so early and rapidly. Ive tried BSM 1 tbsp everyday and so far it's been 5 months with no improvement with my hair. The BSM I take clearly contains copper and other minerals. On top of that, I take b vitamin complex a few times a week, B12 daily, 2000IU of vitamin D (I'm deficient), and Maltofer iron syrup a few times a week (for my low ferratin).
What should I do? Should I switch to taking 2mg copper pills instead? I thought that a food supplement like BSM might be more bioavailable and hard to overdose. Should I add vitamin C to my regime?

Could Vitamin C Be the Cure for Deadly Infections?-By Jim Morrison-SMITHSONIAN.COM -Dr. Paul Marik, chief of the pulmonary and critical care medicine unit at Eastern Virginia Medical School is using Vit C I.V.'s to save people from dying from Sepsis. Works for colds, flu and pneumonia too. So far, he's treated more than 150 patients with the protocol and he says only one has died from sepsis.
I can suggest that your problems stem from chlorine.
Having heart rhythm issues myself with it. As I have aged they became very scary.
I removed chlorine from my body and environment and water. More than 50% of the battle was won.
As I found relief, some other issues became very obvious. I was very low on minerals. Interfering with digestion and elimination.
Magnesium, the most glaring, others also. For me, it was a step by step process.
Your sphincters need lots of magnesium, as does your heart, your esophagus. Creating soft yet strong muscle movement is key. Chlorine steals it or blocks absorption of this. Our food, low in minerals as industrialized farming is just lacking in them.
I removed chlorine, then added magnesium. 250 mg 2x a day. Mag. Malate for runny stool types, Mag. Citrate for constipated types.
I also use sea salt 1/4 tsp in water, a few x a week, to get full trace minerals lacking in our diets.
Potassium citrate, another supplement for muscle and heart. As digestion improves, our bodies begin to utilize the nutrients we are giving it. You might notice a hand or shin cramp. A good sign you need more potassium. I know most say a banana for cramps, but you do not need fructose while you're trying to heal. Or a potato, but nightshades are inflammatory another issue you do not need. 99mg is the available amount in a supplement, yet you might find you might need a little more.
Digestion to organ function, good sleep all are uplifted by using Ted's alkalinity drinks 2x a day, 5 days out of 7. 2 tbsp of apple cider vinegar add 1/2 tsp of baking soda, let fizz, add 1/2 glass of water. The malate's in this drink improve pain. The baking soda will be your best defense against the burping/stuck. I suggest you read the alkalizing chapter here on Earth Clinic, to understand the wide ranging benefits.
Burping relief, Papaya Enzyme chewables. Very best for reliving the issue. Unlike Tums or Rolaids, is good for you, helping to heal rather than just symptom relief.
Eliminations to heal
Table salt, use sea salt only
Vegetable oils, use coconut oil or butter
Non organic food, eat organic, unprocessed food
Liver help, to remove rancid fats and heavy metals
2 tbsp non GMO lecithin, 2x a week with 1/4 tsp cilantro. In food or off a spoon. Will slowly remove toxins with no herxing.
Our trick to fix digestion is Bulletproof coffee. Not exactly like Dave's formulation. We use 1 cup of hot beverage, my favorite is bone broth, but veggie broth, tea or coffee are good too. Add 1 scoop of collagen, 1 tbsp butter, 1 tbsp MCT oil. Blend 10 seconds, drink.
I forgot to mention that each of the times I have these episodes of a hard beating heart, feeling weak and shaky, a fast heart rate, elevated blood pressure, which sent me to the ER multiple times happened after I had eaten a meal or a snack that gave me horrible epi-gastric pressure and that I I was unable to burp. After drinking and moving in different positions I would be able to burp and these symptoms would stop. After some research, I found reference to a condition called Roemheld syndrome. It is caused by the stomach gas rising above the sphincter muscle and putting pressure on the diaphragm and the diaphragm puts pressure on the heart. My symptoms pretty well match those of the Roemheld syndrome, except for my low heart rate. Perhaps the two conditions are linked.
Has anyone heard of this? Thank you to those who offered advice. I am looking into those ideas.
Have just been going through some of Ted's remedies for GO and I would need help for my son who is 3 years old and he's diagnosed with low tone muscles and cerebral palsy. He not walking by himself yet and also not talking, he's always dragging is feet while trying to walk and always picks things from the floor into his mouth. He also started screaming a lot now.
He started having seizure in Dec. last year and he had another 4 this year. Please I need help. Thank you
Arginine with NAC is more effective than arginine alone for lowering blood pressure. For people with herpes or certain viruses, arginine may exacerbate the condition and cause outbreaks or feed an existing outbreak.
I have not checked for other responses to your troubled, plea for help with your joint issues but for what it's worth here is my contribution that works for me at the present time anyway and for which I am truly grateful!!
I should mention at this point that I took my cue from sage and wise contributors to this Site, that a wobbly digestion, if rectified, could lessen the achy joints. Are these two issues connected I hear you ask? Well, many health (read "illnesses") issues are thought by some, including the Ancient Greeks, to be gut-related. Fine, but the stomach has a part to play also so let's look at both of them.
Normally not noted for my propensity for sticking to any plan (there being so much information overload out there these days and better known for my won't power than my will power), I can honestly tell you that the following has brought back some quality of life, relief and hopefully for you too by taking the following five or six days per week.
Before the evening/main meal, I take a pill containing good quality Digestive Enzymes. If you find the right one for you, the results on your digestive processes may well be quick to take effect. Remember while you are reading this that enzymes are important but are often absent from our modern "lifestyle".
In my case, the only effect that I had been AWARE of was the unmentionable (lower) gas along with internal rumblings, that whilst not life threatening, sometimes caused some anxious looks from by-standers who feared I might explode in their proximity. But what, I asked myself, was it doing elsewhere in the system? Was it up to even more mischief?Valid question, if one were to listen to one's body, and we should all do more of that before our body causes us strife, as it inevitably will.
SO, the other three pills I take at a separate time, with another meal are:-
A complete Joint Ease tablet that contains (amongst other things) Chondroitin and Glucosamine. If you are not getting these, you are missing out. Plenty of info on these two everywhere!! Boron included etc etc.
A high quality Fish Oil in some form: food, oil OR capsule - whatever.
Curcumin - BUT the full spectrum and enhanced, bio-available form important, as the stuff is tricky to get enough of if you just go for the regular dosage.
I will not burden you with the many observations / other things you could incorporate into your daily regime, as I and others have written extensively on this wonderful Site on this subject in the past.
However, the above is serving me well at present, as I have thought about this issue for a long time and "boiled" things down to these four being important for Joint Health for me personally. Think of them as "The Fab Four". Nothing to do with the Beatles by the way!!
Your acid reflux is bad for your oesophagus and tooth enamel. Maybe (and this is anathema to many people I realize!?) go off the ACV for a month. Record this action in your diary so that after a month you can review your situation. It may interfere with the above protocol. Then you will be better placed to know where you stand.
