Hello again Anna,

I am hoping to see you again on here because it is the saddest Christmas ever for me. I shut myself off from people because I don't want to inflict myself on them. Now I'm thinking of moving after 3 years, because I am ashamed that people know and see my moods.

I have to go downstairs to the main lobby to get my mail and I usually enjoy it when I do, saying hello to folks mingling around a common area we have for people that are disabled, or just don't want to do anything much. Sometimes I think I am afraid of becoming inactive, but much more afraid of literally being alone by choice.

So I've been taking the 5htp every other day right now, also keeping up every day with my magnesium, B complex, A, D3, zinc, theanine, and Magtein. Just a rundown on what I am taking right now.

It's hard to admit this but I have outbursts when at home alone. I am afraid one day I might do it in front of someone though. I just do this thing where I cuss and say how much I hate the world and everyone in it. It's not true, but I feel that way. I'm in tears writing this and wish something would really work for me. The rest of my close relatives are screwed up too but they have different ways of coping. Prozac for my closest brother, alcohol for my mother, and my sister will blow up one day from keeping everything inside and covering it with stupid jokes. Well, she did raise a butcher knife to me one time.

I don't know if this will get posted because it's more of a whine about my state of mind or mental attitude. The holidays feel horrid for the first time in my life. I always decorated and had the christmas music on. I've tried to get some spirit with a movie of old here and there, and music on. Nothing is working. I still believe I'll hit on the right supplements/foods and again, it has been just about 2.5 months now I've been working on it.

NORMA,,,,,,,, I did not use this mixture on my face. I address those with Curaderm. I used the slush on my fore arms at night and wrapped then with the new type plastic wrap. I have not done that in years and they look like the fore arms of an old man that spent too much time in the sun in short sleeves. Don't chase wimmins, so who cares.

Got a buddy that was in Viet Nam who now has COPD.. I am urging him to read the remedies found on EC. Agent Orange now plagues the world in our food and water. Don't worry, we came from a tadpole and can do so again. Are we stupid or what?

Some areas of the body will be much more sensitive to mag oil. I find if I get some on my neck or face it stings.

Hi Allyd! I know my comment is coming to you almost a year after you posted but I've just found this thread and am so happy I did. I'm just curious to ask why you decided to start taking DHEA in perimenopause. I just ordered some DHEA micronized caps and after looking at all these comments, they appear to be from women post-menopause. My main symptom at this point is a constant burning sensation that I'm hoping will go away once I start the DHEA capsules. I also feel "thinner" down there already and I'm just 44! I'm hoping being proactive and starting now will help things before they get really bad. How long were you taking them in perimenopause before moving to the larger dose?

Hi Susan: I just received my micronized tablets from Amazon as well, and will start on them tomorrow. Just a quick question for you which may have been answered earlier in this thread - did you go on a maintenance dose after a certain point, or just continue with the 5 mg? What benefits did you see by applying externally as well as just inserting vaginally? I'm so happy to have found this thread.

hi Robert Henry, I did the eggplant and vinegar procedure also, I treated a large spot for about a month and it disappeared! Then I used it on my precancerous sun damaged skin (face, chest) and after a few weeks my entire face and chest were bumpy, itchy, red. it was bad, and I had to use a steroid cream to get relief.

I wonder if by leaving the mushed eggplant in the vinegar (refrigerated) the solution became too strong.

I have made more, but this time I strained the eggplant out of the ACV and now have the eggplant infused vinegar. I want to use it to treat a number of seborrheic keratosis. My question to you is, did you apply the mushed eggplant, or the strained liquid?

I know it's been a while, but if you have any input I would be most appreciative!

Magnesium Oil Stung Vein On My Leg, Any Idea Why?

Had a strange thing happen this morning. After my shower, I went to put on my magnesium oil as usual. For some reason, one spot stung like crazy. I looked and saw a purple vein, larger than spider but smaller than varicose. Wow, it stung for 10 minutes! Anyone had this happen? Any ideas on why just this spot? No cuts, just that vein.

Use a Calendar Method for Mystery Ailments

First the diagnosis. Calendar.

Often suffering from ailments for a long time, we can not determine what is the main reason for our health problems. Reading a detective's book, I found a valuable clue: When you do not know what's going on, write a calendar. I applied this advice effectively to determine what I am.

Two calendars were created in this way. On one of them I wrote years from my birth, and slowly making memories, I wrote down my ailments and situations, small and large, and the circumstances of these situations. Not everything can be recalled immediately. Sometimes they can suggest something to their loved ones. The creation of this calendar took a while. but it has led me to the trail, and to the realization of various matters of relevance to my health, which I have not previously linked, that may be the cause.

The second calendar, I started to write on a regular basis. At the end of the day. I wrote how I felt and what I ate, as well as circumstances (in general). Often seeing the main problem with health, we do not notice any details that are also important in the diagnosis.

This gives you the opportunity to see the possible causes and consequences and the frequency of problems in time.

It gives the possibility of more effective use of the funds and reduces mistakes in, for example, supplementation or used herbs.

Aloe Vera didn't work for me. I had very severe sunburn on my legs, so bad that they were swollen. I give this remedy 1 star.

What did work was yoghurt. The swelling improved noticeably in a matter of minutes. Greek yoghurt is the one you should use wherever possible, and sourer the better.

To make 3% hydrogen peroxide from 35% hydrogen peroxide, the general mixing guideline is: 1 part 35% hydrogen peroxide plus 11 parts water = 3% hydrogen peroxide. You can use this guideline with any quantity you need to mix.

There is a company by the name of Trace Minerals which makes electrolyte replacement without added sugar. They use a small amount of stevia. You might try it.

For nearly forty years I have had a problem with reactions to animal dander (horses, cats and some dogs). After taking 1 tablespoon of msm 3 times a day they ceased! I went through some detox reactions - headaches and mild flu like symptoms - lots of emotions surface, predominantly tears, but each episode passed quickly. It seemed with each emotional release my reactions to animal dander decreased so I embraced that by watching plenty of sad movies 😂 to speed up the process! Msm has been life changing for me.

It is thought by some experts to be caused by a virus. The virus attacks the beta cells in the pancreas. I do believe that there usually is a genetic predisposition for this to happen, however.

Castor oil must be hexane-free and cold-pressed and preferably organic, if you can get it. Don't buy from drug stores. Buy from health food stores.

Great discovery! And, glad you're all better! Another suggestion would be to get some liquid Oil of Oregano. Put a couple of drops in some water and use it to rinse out your mouth and as a gargle. Here's the EC link:

Ezcema is an internal problem, usually caused by the ingestion of gluten and/or casein. Eliminate the culprit and the eczema will go away, in most cases.
