How did this turn out? Did it help as much as you felt it did? I was just diagnosed with this, although it's just mild at this time. I much prefer natural remedies.

Hello Suzanne,

Thank you for your kind words. The reason we soak our flaxseeds is to easily obtain the oils, which contain many vitamins and minerals, without risk of rancidity, which is the case of many store bought flaxseed oils (unless buying cold pressed flaxseed oil that you purchase from cold storage and then put immediately in fridge), so this way is just easier for me to recommend. If your smoothies are completely breaking up the flax, then you are getting the benefits, however if you have a bunch of seeds or grit left over in the blender you may like to try soaking, they go down very easy. I have attached for you some info, the study they cite used 2-6 tbsp day divided dose, which means that the nighttime dosage should cause no ill effects. I have not taken this mix at night myself.

What helps me sleep is magnesium bath or oil, some melatonin when I am doing those unfortunate 3 am starts, avoiding coffee, ( have quit bout 6 months now due to chronic dehydration ), castor oil applied to eyelids (the healing oil makes it difficult to keep eyes open once applied), and Heads---e meditation app when required.

One thing to note, Ted wrote insomniacs suffer from excess acidity, therefore 1/4 tsp baking soda and water can be beneficial, conversely, I have also heard that athletes use this as a boost to energy. Myself I have used this alkalizing formula often at bedtime with lemon, and have not found it to hamper sleep.

Also, whether it is for anxiety or actual nerve regeneration, ashwaganda herb is one that keeps popping up in my research.

Best to you

Pickled Beets Helped for Fibroid Bleeding

Wed, 19 Dec 18 10:06:27 -0800

Beets. I was bleeding for 35 days I a row before Thanksgiving, when we traditionally have (amount other normal Thanksgiving foods) pickled beets with red onion.

It's easy to prepare if you buy picked beets in a can, then thinly slice (or use a mandolin) red onions. Put sliced red onion and beets, including the juice, into a container (glass or stainless steel is what I use ) and marinate for at least one day, a few more days for extra flavor (note it is good for a long, long time afterwards ). We have a large family so I use 2-3 red onions and a large can of pickled beets (the largest they sell at Smart & Final). Now I'm a busy mom, so I do it the easy way, by buying a can of already pickled beets and adding the red onion (fresh) the way that my mom taught me. However you can make it yourself with fresh beets and red onion, but that way is messy but perhaps healthier if you use fresh beets. My mom made it that way for years but the switched to this recipe. Whichever way you like, but please note the pickled beets in a can worked for me.

Anyways, I ate beets on Thanksgiving, and a few days afterwards I ate the leftovers and all the beets (around four regular helpings I would say). Then after all the beets were gone for some reason I was compelled to drink the beet juice it had been sitting in (which I had never done before).

That weekend my ovary or uterus started throbbing painfully, man that hurt! And then I started bleeding the heaviest I ever had with sorry, TMI, globs coming out as well. Tampon and pad getting soaked and needing to be changed almost hourly. I was worried, as was my husband as we have no insurance. That lasted 3 days and then.....drumroll...I stopped bleeding all together! Total days I bled was 43 days (with maybe a random day or two dry here or there). It's now been almost two weeks with no bleeding.

So researching and reading online somewhere trying to figure out if I had fibroids or cysts, I ran across a recipe for beets and honey drink for fibroid issues. I remembered the beets I ate and the beet juice that I drank and think that is what helped me. So my insides, ovaries or uterus started hurting like before, so I just ate a bunch more of my pickled beets this afternoon, and drank some / a lot of the juice it was sitting in. I'll be making more pickled beets for Christmas (as this is a family favorite). However I will be eating more beets regularly. I will try to remember to post in the future if this helped in the long run.

Apple Cider Vinegar for Chalazion

All those warm compresses, tea bags and massage did nothing for my chalazion. But Apple Cider vinegar made a HUGE difference in 2 days. It's now day 4 after ACV directly on a qtip about 4 times a day and it's almost gone. Thank goodness for this site - I was considering surgery since this little bugger wouldn't respond to anything else, and hearing people's terrible experiences made me try this as a last resort. TOTALLY WORKS! Use organic acv with the mother, I just put a few drops with an eyedropper and hold/wipe for a minute or two and then done!

Had the worse case of the dreaded lump in the throat. I've had LPR for a couple of years now. Fixed it pretty much but dry cough is still there, and flare ups if I eat or drink the wrong thing.

Today I was almost at my wits end and saw Sasha from New York's 2010 post on ACV and BS. Never ever tried the two together, until today. It worked, omygosh, such a relief and the lump is just barely there now. Thanks to everyone who posts these wonderful remedies I usually have right in my cupboards.

 Re: Electrolytes Added to Colloidal Silver

Hi Deirdre,

Sounds like you've been very busy making quite a few quarts of colloidal silver!

The 5 drops of electrolyte at the beginning of the production process insures a greater than 90% reduction of the ionic silver to silver nanoparticles and also helps to insure minimum plateout on the cathode and virtually no sediment in the finished product. Actually I use 6 drops to optimize the reduction process and is a critical step if you are making the 320 ppm CS, but much more forgiving for under 40 ppm. Too little electrolyte on the high ppm and you are not likely to reach the actual ppm that you have set your silver generator to make.

Hope you had a better night!

I don't think wearing a neck brace would help, frankly. In my experience, you have to give the nerves time to regenerate and that takes quite a while. However, I think if you stop putting any direct pressure on the area (shoulder blade, under the arm pit, etc), hopefully you will have less pain in a day or two.

It helps to figure out what is aggravating the nerves. I made things worse and slowed the healing process down by constantly using acupressure massage tools and the dog walking issue I mentioned yesterday.

When I first got the injury, I just had an intense stabbing pain in my shoulder blade. However, after I went to see a chiropractor to fix it, he adjusted me on my stomach. A few hours later, I had shooting pain down my arm. Then I went to see another chiropractor a week or two later and that one used an osteopathic vibrating tool on my shoulder blade. Felt incredible for a few hours but then more pain, numbness and loss of strength in the arm.

For at-home treatments once the pain was gone, I got a soft airball from the myofascial therapist and, per her instructions, put it under my bad shoulder blade and extended my arm and stayed like that for a few minutes. That was AFTER putting the ball on tight spots along the psoas and laying on it with all my weight. See the diagram in this article ( Not a comfortable sensation but works wonders! For some reason that the therapists can explain, releasing psoas muscle tightness in the abdomen is critical to healing in other parts of the body. My therapist also taught me to put my arm in the doorway frame and very gently stretch it. The key with myofascial release is that you have to hold each position for at least 4 minutes.

Not sure this helps, but hopefully another few ideas for you! Have a wonderful day!

P.S. Art had fantastic success using an ice pack on his nerve pain issues so you might read up on that in the thread Littlewing posted yesterday.

 Re: When To Add Electrolytes to Colloidal Silver?

Tue, 18 Dec 18 17:06:42 -0800
Posted by Deirdre (Los Angeles) on 12/16/2018

Electrolyte solution is supposed to be added to your distilled water in the mason jar before you start the process. Add drops and stir with a wooden spoon that has been rinsed in distilled water.

If you want to turn the batch into colloidal silver after it's finished, you add a few drops of the sugar solution (reducing agent).

Tip: Make sure MA setting reads around 12 for perfect batches of 20 ppm CS. Either adjust the cathode or add more electrolyte solution. I wasn't adding enough electrolyte solution to my first few batches and the MA reading was always way too high.

Many thanks to Art for patiently training me on how to make Colloidal Silver. Couldn't have done it without him! I have now made at least 100 quarts of CS for friends, family, pets and self in the past year and a half. Some I kept as ionic silver to use topically, but most batches I turned into Colloidal Silver. Directions say to add 5 drops of the reducing agent (50/50 karo syrup and distilled water), but 1 drop is all it takes for my batches to turn pale yellow.

Some thoughts re your shoulder.

We have approached injuries each time with this same thing. It may help.

Extreme pain. Progesterone cream and iodine. It seems to get the gut hormones woken up to smooth the way for any healing efforts. A drop or 2 of lugols 5%. And 1/4 tsp of progesterone cream. Both near the pain or injury applied topically.

When you wrote about your wife thinking shingles were rearing up. My mold alarm went off. The crazy varied mold attacks never have common sense. My 20 year old shingles path reared up only once. This year. When the contractors shattered our porch and water went behind the basement pine paneling. No visible signs or scent. Mold creates some crazy pain.

Particular to the finish on the pine. From the 50s we think. Something odd or maybe normal. The pine, where it was encountering water, drying, redampening had a peculiar scent and toxicity. Separate from the mold issue.

Your description of the pain. Sounds like a spur, not saying it is. That pain is devastating. A possibility to increase taking d3. We have upped it during a injury phase. 20,000iu, above standard dosing. The great thing and what I remain mindful of, our hormones. Our age and reduced hormone levels. D is a help with this also.

Although I do not pretend to have answers. I try to give an edge or success strategy to the things we have tackled.

Problem with my aching shoulder, I solved with wraps of fresh geranium leaves, crumpled to let go of the juice. On the list I put on warming, put on a 4, old cotton T-shirt. I changed the leaves 2 times a day. I walked with this wrap for about a week, but I felt relieved from the first day. Leaves of geranium permanently dirty clothes and bedding, so you need to properly protect the wrap. Geranium is a popular name for the potted plant Pelargonium graveolens. It is worth to do it at home.

Synergy Protocol for HSV

This is a thread for those following the Synergy protocol for herpes infection. This thread in no way is associated with the business of Synergy Pharmaceuticals. It seems to be having issues keeping threads up over at the Honeycomb HSV forum due to factions within the community. Honestly, there are massive issues in that community that they allow people to post and advise inaccurate information regarding this infection that borders on negligence and breech of duty of care in the opinion of this writer.

People would like to be able to speak freely of their experiences with Synergy protocol away from medical dogma.

EC: Are any of our regular readers familiar with this protocol? We've never heard of it before.

We'll post for now and see what kind of posts we get about it.

Hi Denise,

This is the B complex I like. I only take one/day, or less. It has the bio actve B formulas that can be readily used by the body, and is not expensive. It is available on most health sites.

I admire all you have accomplished regarding taking charge of your health.
