I would like to read Ted's Autism/Asperger's Syndrome in particular, Treatment Protocol? I can't find it anywhere in the postings? I believe I am overlooking it.

I would appreciate anyone pointing it out to me.

In appreciation, Ronda

EC: Hi Rondamommie ,

Always check the Q&A section for Ted's remedies. The link to the Q&A is located at the top of the table of contents menu on most pages.

Hi Rondamommie,

I just saw your post and thought I should interject some very valuable info in regards to autism. There are some amazing people doing work to turn it around through diet. Donna Gates is a strong force in this movement and you can see her book, The Body Ecology Diet or go on her website. There is a lot of info and it is unbelievable what she has achieved. She offers solid, hands-on advice with very specific instructions in how to turn things around. If you go there you will see that she is about to launch a free teleseminar devoted to parents of autistic children in which they themselves will also talk about what they are doing and their stories of recovery. You have to pre-register for it to access it but it is free and once you register you will continue to have access to it to listen to over again. I just did this with her Spring Cleansing seminar and have listened to it twice now.

She has also created the Bedrok Community devoted to families who deal with autism that you might want to check out. There are stories of recovery, lots of support, diet suggestions and recipes, workshops, etc. You can go to and see all this info.

I have only recently discovered her work and have learned so much and have such respect for all she has done to help people recover their lives. I hope this helps you.

Wishing you the best on your journey,

I cannot find on the site where it lists how to get to Ted's remedies list. Where do I look? Thank you

EC: If Ted has posted a remedy, it will be located at the top of the table of contents on any given page. Look for "Ted's Remedies" or in the Questions & Answers section.

Yesterday I received a great email from a contributor (who wishes to remain anonymous) asking if we would consider adding the following phrase to the bottom of every post. You may have already seen this on many sites like

I'm afraid that although I use Amazon quite often and really value the comments posted there I don't see the use of letting people know whether a particular comment was useful or not. As I use for the comments and there are many I don't often read them all so the fact that I don't rate them it doesn't mean they were not useful. The same here, I only read the comments that apply to me which doesn't mean at all that the other ones are not useful. I think that it would give the wrong kind of information such as some comments being more useful than others which wouldn't be true. They are more useful to you maybe but are they in the whole? The fact that no one in my househol doesn't suffer from ear aches right now doesn't mean that comment might not be very useful in the future? It won't bother me if you start having such an option but is it really useful? Does it really show the value of the posting?

I agree with Francisca from Michelbach-le-bas. Earth Clinic has its own unique way, no other like it. Peace, Rena.

I personally would NOT like to see this on Earth Clinic! We are on here pouring out our hearts, trying to help others, and looking for help. We are not here to be judged as to the usefullness of our posts to each and every person that visits. We are only here to learn and to help others. Please don't add this feature, I think people would find it very inhibiting and distracting. I do not like to see it on other websites and I would hate to see it here!!!!!

EC: Thanks so much to everyone who has responded - glad I asked!

I love your site! Read it almost everyday. Not sure how much control you have over it, but I am disgusted by the new ads that are popping up in the middle of your posts. Advertising weight-loss products and Health Insurance are two subjects your readers are trying to get away from! Please remove them!

EC: Hi Louisa,

Thanks for the feedback. We can ban ads only when we have the url of the ad (e.g. Please let me know which pages you see the irritating ads and the url, if possible. Also, are they Chitika ads or Google ads?

No ads should be "popping up" however, in the middle of posts anywhere on the site. The ads are all located in the same place on every page, either at the very top or the very bottom. Anyone else seeing pop up ads in the middle of a page?

Thanks for your help!

Dear EC: Re: Guidelines:

1) Please correct Ted's error there [under ACV & BS remedies] in which he says "250 mg," but means 250 ml.

2) Also, it would be good to add to the Guidelines a compilation of general facts about getting EC cures to work if at first they do not seem to.

For example, I have read the following types of cases:

A: the cure did not seem to work until it was tried for a longer time than was posted - but then it did kick in. Principle: be sure to try a remedy long enough, sometimes longer than is recommended or typical.

B: a cure was said not to have worked because the person's liver was in too bad a shape --- so, Principle: make sure your liver - or clogged colon or whatever - is fit enough to process the cure. Might need to address that issue first before using a remedy.

C: a cure was reported not to work (it happened to be with the usual ACV amount) until the poster happily reported she upped the amount of the remedy. So, Principle: is to (cautiously)use more than recommended in some instances.

Thanks very, very much for your work & concern for others as displayed by this site.

EC: Thanks for the great suggestions, Judy!

Ted's error has been fixed. The rest of your post will be added to our guidelines page as WISE ADVICE FROM OUR READERS!

Can you please provide us list of abbreviations of different kind of diseases. Example AAA, BKA etc.

Also list of antibiotics.


EC: Hi, Terry.

We have a list of abbreviations here:

Not sure why we'd need a list of antibiotics on Earth Clinic? One can find many lists on the internet... Here's one:

Hello EC. I have been reading and posting on this site for a while now and have some concerns as of today. I had asked Ted some questions about borax and soy safety and he did respond back to me , but now I can not find that post of mine or his response any where on earth clinic... All my other post I am able to find. I started looking at Ted recommendations, for people with health concerns and have noticed as of late he is not so much mentioning borax internally, but still is giving instructions for externally.

Are you all moving away from useing borax internally?

Should I be concerned? Because I used it over a six week period internally in the summer of 2008.

I just find it strange that these questions and TEDS response back to me is no longer on here. And it was in the last week or so that I posted it.

Also, I noticed EC dates back to 1999, but I never see any post past 2006, is there an archive or are post deleated after a certain amount of time?

It's to late if for me if borax is not being used internally anymore, as I have already taken it over one year ago, But if Ted is moving away internal suggestions... Then it should be NOTED on the Borax page.

Thank You,

EC: Hi Phil,

Your post and Ted's response about borax is still on the site! It's here - Nothing was removed.

Okay, this is very weird. I just found your post on the Latest Posts page and then lost it. It seems to be caught in between page 1 and page 2! If you click on the Latest Post link, you won't find it, but if you go to the bottom of Latest Posts page 2 and click the link for page 1, you will find your post. This is obviously a programming malfunction. Thanks for catching it! This is the url to find your posts.

Dates: Prior to 2006, no dates were posted on Earth Clinic. Read more about the EC dating system here: (see #3).

Posts are rarely deleted on the site, nor is anything archived except for the Fibromyalgia Questionnaire forms. We will eventually have to start an archive system as some ailments are starting to contain too many pages of feedback like the Bacterial Vaginosis.

Hello EC! I am probably the most paranoid person you all will ever have contact with and there is a story behind that, but we will save that for another day!!!

Anyway I feel great, But I guess sometimes the fear of the unknown can wear on any of us... I just got real concerned ( Paranoid ) when I did not see my post.

I definitely feel as though the borax internally helped me alot ... I had just read on some other website about the dangers and got paranoid. But the ideal of taking a small amount of a poison is not NEW... My aunt, for years has taking real sulfer in capules for her kidney infections and the medical doctor has told her that it would kill her. But she is still alive and doing fine. She has done this all of her life. I just got a little paranoid, I GUESS I MISSED A DOSE OF MY NIACINAMIDE( B-3), I'm ok now. LOL!

Thank You for all that you do!


EC: Hi Phil, no no no not paranoid at all! I would have wondered where the heck my stuff was too! I was wondering why a few people kept writing in wondering where their posts were! Most importantly, you brought sometime to our attention that needed to be fixed on the database, so I am very appreciative. Thank you!

Dear Phil: Borax is a regular remedy I have used and is very often used here to get to get hormones level to normal levels, if they were low. It's one of the most useful supplements I use. The most used is alkaline (baking soda, potassium bicarbonate, potassium citrate, etc), and in the future you will be seeing more of iodine and borax also. Iodine drives out fluoride, bromine that accumulates over your lifetime and hence borax is to remove fluoride, and iodine is to remove bromine, and sodium thiosulfate is to reduce chlorine. Hence, borax is one of the remedies I used most frequently. It helps normalize bone metabolism, normalize magnesium to calcium ratio, is a required mineral, normalizes hormone for both men and woman, it has a weak viagra properties which is helpful for people 40s and up. It's removal of fluoride I have found normalizes my sleep pattern and now I have taken up to iodine (lugol's solution) as it has the benefit of alkalizing effect, and drives out fluorides and bromines as well.

It should be noted that in 1971, all flour processing switched from iodine to bromine, and hence you get iodine deficiencies when iodine is replaced with another halogen, that has no nutritional benefit at all. Hence this is white bread and white flour are so unhealthy.

In response to your mention of B3, the B3 is one of the few vitamins that support pancreas function in normalizing blood sugar. One of the most difficult areas I have in health is the issue of sugar. B1, B3 Niacinamide and B6 are the common B vitamins I used for blood sugar. B3 reduces anxiety, emotional disturbances, suicidal tendencies, etc. In general, B3 has a calming effects and is synergistic with amino acid supplements. Takes about 30 minute to take effect. In event of extreme depression, the minimum dose for B3 niacinamide is 500 mg. It won't work below that. However, most people would be happy with 250 mg dose.

I spend a lot of time at the EC site (obviously) and frequently have to log back in. Is there some way that could be remedied? (The having to log in, not the time spent at the site :p)

EC: Hi Connie. Earth Clinic uses sessions rather than cookies for registered users. A session expires every 2 hours, which is why you are finding yourself logged out. At this point we're not planning on supporting cookies (which would allow you to stay logged in longer), but this week we will be adding a log in/password field to the top of every page to save people that extra click!

We make upgrades to the site a little at a time because the programming fees (outside contractor) are so costly!

Posted by Sammijo66 (Huntsville, Alabama, United States) on 08/26/2009

I love the posts on here but this is my issue....
I want to just cry with frustration...
I can not find my own posts and do not know how to navigate through the sight to get where I want to be to read what I want to read. I wish I could just go to ANY tab (ailments or remedies or last posts) to find what I want to find. Oh please add spell check !!!!!!!!!!!
I have this problem where I type or write the second letter before the next letter (if you know what this is called PLEASE tell !!!) SO, my issue is that I love this site BUT I can not and do not know how to navigate and want to find where I left off. Please help for I feel so foolish.

EC: Hi Sammijo66. You should be able to find your recent submissions on the Latest Posts page once they've been approved. However, certain posts will not be posted on the LP page if we deem them to be too risque (i.e., posts that contain graphic details for conditions like genital warts and bacterial vaginosis).

We're working to improve the registered user section of Earth Clinic so that people wiill be able to find their posts once they sign in under "My Account". Hopefully that will help you...

If you do a search for your own user name or email address whatever you should have an easier time. ;) Too too simple... I know... genius.... I have those days too....

EC: Very true, but it often takes a few days (sometimes a week) before new posts/users show up in the search results! All depends on those google bots indexing the site.

Posted by Linda (York County, Maine) on 08/21/2009

Hello, when I perform a search and see the results, I then click on a link which brings me to the page of the post I'm looking for but not directly to the post I'd like to read. I know programming is no small feat, but I wonder if it would be possible for your links to take us directly to the post that's quoted?

Thank you in advance. I think this sounds like a good idea, but what do I know?!! I'm a bit technologically challenged at times - love what Earth Clinic teaches me and appreciate all who contribute! Linda

EC: We use Google Search and will have to see if it can be programmed to highlight the key words from your inquiry. Haven't seen it done where you are taken directly to the post, however! Anyone know if this is possible with Google Search?

Replied by Earth Clinic

An improvement to our search function: key words from any Earth Clinic searches are now highlighted on the page in green and yellow once you click on a link from the Google search results.

EC: Hi Suzi. We use a "normal" font size on this website. However, every website browser gives you the option to increase the font size settings. Internet Explorer does a great job with giving you different options. Firefox doesn't do as good a job with Earth Clinic though..

You can also choose ZOOM under the Page drop-down menu.

Hello wonderful Earth Clinic technician :) Your Website is fantastic. :) It's sooo user friendly. :) And it's very plain and simple. So nice! I love the search feature and the layout with a brief Wikipedia blurb at the beginning of each section. Also that Ted's conclusions are often first on the page. Thank you thank you thank you!!! for such a stellar product :)

I have a dream... That one day... when I click to comment on an article, the original page remains fixed. No longer does it automatically boot up to the beginning of the page. I return to my perusal with ease... No more scrolling and scrolling to relocate my place... I can see it now... ... ... I realize that with all your technical know-how there must be an exemplary reason for this amazing phenomenon to which I am sadly ignorant. Nonetheless, it has been a dream of mine for some time now... At night I lay awake and dream of it... I can see it when I close my eyes... When I am parked at red lights my thoughts return to it... Perhaps FireFox has left me Internet Explorer deficient? Am I forever doomed to scrolling through page after page frantically searching for that last-read tid-bit of epiphanacious enlightenment? I can't sleep... I can't eat...

EC: Ah, dear Connie, thank you kindly for all the compliments about Clnica de la Tierra. Your dreams would be answered right away should you decide to view posts in Internet Explorer rather than Firefox. Unfortunately Firefox does not use a place holder so zipping back and forth between pages is a frustrating experience. Try Internet Explorer and let us know if your universe returns to divine order.

Would it be possible to add optional fields for GENDER and AGE to your feedback form? I find it really helpful when members put what gender they are (male or female) and what age. So perhaps it would be nice for this data to be standardized.

The reason I find this information helpful is to be able to sift through all the latest postings faster. A lot of times I'm only interested in certain remedies that cured males or people near my age. Thanks.

EC: Interesting idea, thanks for the suggestion. Would anyone else like to see this added?

Surprised to see this mentioned because I was just wondering the other day if some remedies that work great for young people might not work as well for elderly people. So I do think this added information might be helpful.

I am really not liking the new layout, but guess I can get used to it. I am finding it harder to find things I am looking for. I would like to suggest on the remedies page to put the remedy in another color. The black writing and then the bold, it just all blends in together and looks generic. Thank you

EC: Thanks so much for the feedback, Nikki.

To all - Nikki is referring to the recent redesigned index pages for ailments, remedies and pets. Do you agree with Nikki or have any further suggestions? The redesign was supposed to make it easier to find things, not harder!
