A friend has raved over your web site, but I find it very questionable. For example, I run a search on an ailment and find 10 different cures for the same thing! It appears that you post any person's random comment without any validation or follow through. How can I know which is truly most effective? Others say they are going to have levels tested with bloodwork but fail to report the factual results, making their self-diagnosis appear unfounded. DO YOU HAVE ANY CRITERIA OR INSIGHT OVER WHAT INDIVIDUALS POST?

In answer to requests from many in the Earth Clinic Community, Ted and Bill's recently published eBook, pH Balanced for Life! The Easiest Way to Alkalize is soon to be available for order from the Earth Clinic store and booksellers near you! We expect our first shipment of books to arrive on EC store shelves by Monday, October 22nd. Pre-orders now being accepted!
Congratulations Earth Clinic on the new book! The cover is beautiful! I will surely order it soon! Handy to have the best advice all together in the same place! Can't wait to read it.... And I will surely let you know what I think, as I always do with all the books I read!
I'm guessing some of these posts by 'anonymous' people saying things don't work are drug company people.
You may have noticed - things are slowing down on the Real-Time Posts page of Earth Clinic! Wondering why? Well, we were receiving up to 20 fake posts a day from companies trying to promote their products with various key word placement and have been deleting such posts (old and new) from the site. They have finally caught wind of the fact that their posts aren't going through and many have stopped submitting them.
Just to give you a few examples without mentioning product names:
* A brand that sell turmeric capsules at a big box store was sending in bogus feedback (since last summer) at least once a week for boils and MRSA.
* Various brands of probiotics to treat bacterial vaginosis...
* A certain brand of hormones for women... written with different sets of key words, but all of which will bring you to the same product if you were to google them.
* A false NAY for inversion board therapy so they could promote a certain product for the back...
And many, many more...
We are making our way through the site, page by page, and removing older feedback that is questionable. If you happen to see any posts that strike you as bogus, please let us know. Thanks so much!

Hi everyone. i have never writen on sites like this before but i felt like i should because i have just tried something new for bv which has actually WORKED!!!!!! :) i have had bv since i was 19 and i'm 29 now, it has been a horrible, long and embarrasing 10 years! mine has been constant as i left it for 2 years before i even went to the doctors, then no treatment seemed to work for longer than one day. it has TOTALLY affected my life and relationships and my confidence. i have done so many things to stop people finding out about it,i even have to change my underwear at least 4 times a day. i used panty liners for 9 years everyday but i got so sick of it that now i just carry extra underwear everywhere i go!
When i found this site, i thought i had found a miricle cure and was so excited! i tried EVERYTHING people suggested but it didn't really seem to work and then a few days later it seemed to get even worse!the smell seemed so much stronger!anyway, i was really down thinking that was my last chance to be normal again......when i saw something called Balance Activ advertised. It said it took away abnormal vaginal smell and discharge and could help with bv! anyway, i got it last week and you insert some gel every night for a week and it clears it up. i was so worried that it wouldn't work but last night was my last night........................AND IT HAS TOTALLY WORKED!!!! i just can't believe it!!! i know i have to wait to see if or when it comes back but this is the FIRST time i have noticed no smell at all or any horrible discharge!! my stomache is aching with anticipation to see if it works long term, but it feels totally different this time! no antibiotics, no douching with weird things, no trying EVERYTHING possible you have read on the internet!
I know this site didn't want any product names on it but people who are so desperate to get rid of bv will be so grateful of this product that i hope this message gets printed! It's called Balance Activ, you can find info on the internet and you can also buy it now in larger Boots stores in England!!
I have had this for 10 years and have kept it a secret from everyone. it even feels weird writing this all down because i have never told anyone apart from all the doctors i have been to to try and get rid of this! my life seems so much brighter now, i can't believe that something has actually worked. i recommend everyone with bv to try it because it had changed my life( i feel like i can have a life now!!)
I hope this works for everyone. Dee x
EC: Funny and most obviously a fake!
In todays (11/5/12) Boston Globe newspaper there was an substantial article by a Dr. who said all rice has arsenic in it. It varies from brand to brand. The soil has it in it. I like rice and was wondering if anyone has any feedback on this? Until I do I will not be putting rice into my system. Thank you

Please watch "Genetic Roulette Full Movie" on youtube. It tells the dangers of GMO food. Watch it and you be the judge.

Please keep abreast of how bad/harmful GMO foods are for you and your loved ones. Monsanto is being banned in most parts of the world, but very much present in the USA.

I have been avoiding shampoo and conditioner lately and washing my hair in borax and acv. I put some olive oil in my hair the other day (a bit too much and am having trouble washing it out). I resorted to buying some shampoo and conditioner so I could wash the oil out.
I happened to glance at the ingredients on the back of the bottles.
I wonder why EDTA, which is a metal chelator (including essential metals/minerals), Citric Acic which is related to MSG (a excitotoxin), and Sodium Chloride (salt) is being added to these products?
I have since read that EDTA is being added to lots of foods and drinks as well!
No wonder we are getting sicker! Anyway I didn't use them.. they are going in the bin.
Moral of the story - read your labels.
In case you missed it earlier, please READ: "WebMD, Not the Independent Health Source You Expected".
WebMD is the gigantic, pro-pill web site whose original partner was Eli Lilly. (yep, pharmaceutical manufacturer).
The WebMD Health empire includes the following subsidiaries:
eMedicine / eMedicine Health
Even more interesting: The first-ever partnership between the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and a private company is with, you guessed it, WebMD!
Conflict of interest in this so-called independent health advisor?

Another awesome Website is:
It has lots of information on the nutrient content of foods, and
is a huge list of additives.
Another great link:
Discusses the benefits of some of the world's healthiest foods.
I think many of you might be interested in this article I read today about the use of parabens: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2085585/Parabens-Chemical-everyday-items-needs-investigation-scientists-discover-tumours-ALL-breast-cancer-patients.html .
I find it extraordinary that in a world with more and more cancer.... Not to talk about other illnesses we only focus on our way to treat them, hardly ever how to prevent them! I care more for prevention than for the perfect treatment!
