Perhaps it may solve some or all of your friend's problem. She has only better health and well-being to gain by applying its recommendation. What has she got to lose?
These two quotes are instructive:
"There are more than ten thousand scientific papers that make it quite clear that there is not one body process (such as what goes on inside cells or tissues) and not one disease or syndrome (from the common cold to leprosy) that is not influenced - directly or indirectly - by vitamin C." -- Dr. Emanuel Cheraskin, M.D., Dr. Marshall Ringsdorf, D.M.D., and Dr. Emily Sisley, THE VITAMIN C CONNECTION.
“I have never seen a patient that Vitamin C would not benefit.” -- Dr. Frederick Klenner, M.D.
I wish you BEST success, Caspy, in your search for a solution to your friend's health issue!
Protein C Deficiency make sometimes a serious probem in our body. SO tell your frined o seroiusly take care of that. He can consult a physician for beter advice to handle with the dificiency. He must have a food control to manage the protein C. There are some rinks available to increase protein C. He can use if you did not get any other remedies. You can enjoy your days by forgetting all your tensions from the Thailand holidays . There are lots of offers waiting for make you happy always.
Hi everyone. I'm thinking of try andy cutler's protocol for my mysterious brain disorder. I believe my brain disorder may be caused by heavy metals or mineral toxicity(eye drop medication seeped into my brain and reacted intensely). I'm just wondering if I should start dmsa/dmps first before ala? If yes, how long should I take dmsa/dmps before I start ala? I read that ala can cross the blood brain barrier, what other chelators can cross the blood brain barrier? Should I do a hair analysis test? Should I take a multivitamin and maybe lechiten? How about methylation protocol? 12.5mg ala is a good start?
Hi, the following is bits of information I have typed from time to time. I will post more information about things that helped me recover from Traumatic Brain Injury when I have time to do so.
My very Best Wishes to anybody who is looking for treatments for brain injury. Don't give up. I was told there is no treatment and no cure. I had to cure myself. I'm still not 100%, but I've come a long, long way, all through my own efforts, using things that cost nothing, or next to nothing.
Most people I've met who have a brain injury believe everything their doctors tell them. They have no interest in trying to recover by their own efforts. they tell me it cannot be done. this is such a shame. I have met only two people who are working on their own recovery.
Never give up. Try one new thing at a time, and record the results.
I incurred what doctors called a ‘mild’ injury to the brain after hitting my head, twice, during a fall. The 'mild' injury completely ruined my life.
I didn’t know I had a brain injury. I had constant headache, a ‘foggy’ head, difficulties in speaking, ordering my thoughts, adding simple numerics, managing my affairs. I couldn’t make a cup of tea.
I had poor balance, and was in danger of further falls. I staggered when I walked. My speech was slurred.
I was constantly fatigued, sleeping up to 18 hours a day.
I could not count. I could not cross a road safely. I could barely hold a conversation with another person. I could not remember words. I could not make a cup of coffee.
Not long after learning that these and other problems were symptoms of Acquired Brain Injury, I said to myself: I refuse to accept this injury. Life, in this state, is intolerable. The human brain is an organ of unfathomable brilliance, and I can rely on my once well-oiled brain to help me remedy this untenable affliction. My mind will give me the ideas and guidance I need to find the remedies for this condition. I will not be satisfied until I have regained 100% brain function.
The following are among treatments I have trialled. These gave the greatest success. I hope some or all of these will be of assistance to others. Every brain injury is different -- perhaps none of these will offer others an improvement. However, there’s little to lose in trying, and much, potentially, to gain.
I’m not a doctor and I have no formal medical qualifications. I’ve had a number of health issues over the years, for some of which I was told there was nothing wrong with me. I’ve learned the hard way that when doctors say “nothing wrong” or “incurable”, I have to find my own ways to fix my health.
The opinions I express, and the treatments I’ve found effective for my Acquired Brain Injury, are mine alone. I’m not affiliated to any organisation and I don’t receive any payment from anyone (more’s the pity!) I’ve received no compensation for my injuries, very little assistance and, since my accident, my life has changed completely. I’ve had to seek treatments that are low-cost and easy to obtain.
THE BEST ATTITUDE TO HAVE
Some of the things I’ve learned:
1. When doctors can’t help or don’t know the answers: allow myself to be upset/depresssed/despairing for a while, but then get angry. Get determined and make a resolution to find the answers, and to not stop until the problem is fixed. I have a right to better health.
2. There are people all over the world who’ve managed to cure themselves, or at least improve the symptoms, of a vast range of ailments, including life-threatening illnesses. I can suffer and attempt to cope with my brain injury, OR I can spend my time trying to improve my symptoms and, thus, my quality of life. It’s my choice.
3. Get on the internet. And read, research, ask people. Listen to people AND tell people my own information.
4. Above all, TRY THE THINGS I HEAR ABOUT. I cannot say a brain injury treatment “doesn’t work” until I’ve trialled it, extensively, myself.
DON'T EVER BELIEVE A BRAIN INJURY “WON’T RESPOND TO TREATMENT”
I find many people, who have an Acquired Brain Injury, have no interest in trying to improve the symptoms with self-treatment. They usually tell me they’ll only take things recommended by their doctor or other medical professionals. They also tell me, usually, that their doctor told them there is no treatment for an ABI.
Some have even told me that the things I’m doing don’t work – even though they hardly know me, know nothing about my injury, and have never tried the treatments themselves. At times, I am astounded at the level of negativity and apathy that seems to surround self-treatment for brain injury. It’s as if there is nothing to do but put up with an ABI.
The thing these people may not realise is that Western medicine seems to have decided on our behalf, a long time ago, that we are not going to get better, and that chronic brain injuries don’t respond to treatment. Western medicine, however, is not the only medicine.
OUR BRAINS CAN GROW NEW CELLS, AND HEAL, WITH OUR HELP
I often wonder if any funding is given to the research of treatments for brain injury, other than for treatment during the first hours and weeks after the injury is incurred. Western medicine is saving many lives, but it seems it is only now beginning to discover a very important thing: the brain can grow new cells at any age, at any time, given the right conditions. I already knew that, and i hadn't realised it was a radical idea. I thought everybody knew that the brain grows and changes.
A QUESTION I ASKED MYSELF
Upon learning I had an injury to the brain, and pondering upon the best course of action, I asked myself:
If the brain can grow new cells, new brain tissue – and thus, potentially, recover partially or fully – what do I need to do, eat, take, in order to create the right conditions for this new cell growth to happen?
To me, the answer is this: I need to try everything I can find, everything I can think of, that will give oxygen, vitamins, minerals and stimulation to the brain, and/or will reduce the trauma to the brain.
It is often said that fish is ‘brain food’. Perhaps the fish I consumed in my youth could be considered thus, however the fish I today find available is loaded with mercury and other poisons. Since acquiring a brain injury, I don’t experience any benefit to my brain after eating fish; in fact, I find my now-sensitive brain reacts rather poorly to fish and seafood, so I avoid them.
Beans, on the other hand, are beautiful music to the brain. Beans and bean sprouts are packed with nitrogen, which fuels new cell growth and cell repair. Garden fertilisers contain nitrogen because it makes things grow big and strong.
(A tip: I tried this many years ago, after being told by a keen gardener: Plant beans, of any kind, around the base of another plant, and chop them off once they reach a height of 5-10 cm. The central plant will grow more quickly and robustly. The beans will release nitrogen into the soil and the nitrogen will power any plants planted near the beans. Such is the power of nitrogen in the growing beans that they enrich the soil around them.)
BEAN SPROUTS of all kinds ie.alfalfa, mung sprouts et al. are not only rich in nitrogen but also very rich in Vitamin C, which repairs cells, is needed for the growth of new cells, flushes toxins and prevents illness.
All beans are beneficial to the brain, and broad beans seem to be particularly good.
I have found broad beans, either fresh or frozen, seem to give a pronounced boost to my brain function, within a few days of consumption. I mix cooked broad beans with seeds, and/or nuts, cashew spread, hummus, tahini, cooked vegetables, grated cheese, tomato, or anything I can think of, to enhance the rather bland (some would say unpalatable) taste. I also add them to soups and stews.
I don’t know why cashew nuts are effective in helping my injured brain. I understand they are rich in Vitamin E, which assists in healing/repair, and also rich in natural fats and oils that are necessary for good brain function.
I regularly purchase cashew spread, and aim to consume 1-2 tablespoons daily, either on toast or straight from the jar. I find a spoonful of cashew spread is a good pick-me-up, between meals, when I’m tired but haven’t time to rest.
Walnuts don’t seem to be quite as effective as cashews, but still give a noticeable benefit. Someone told me, upon learning of my brain injury, that walnuts, which are shaped like the brain, are a good ‘brain food’.
I find they are best eaten from the shell, so as to eat the whole walnut. Half a dozen organic walnuts, eaten from the shell, several days in a row, seems to give my brain a definite boost for days afterwards.
I keep hearing good things about all kinds of nuts, so I try to eat a variety. Macadamia nuts, in particular, are supposed to be a total food, containing just about everything the body needs – but only if they’re grown organically.
Avocadoes provide Vitamin E (one of the two ‘healing vitamins’, Vitamins A and E, recommended to a friend of mine by a pharmacist, and prescribed to heal cuts and abrasions without scarring) and natural fats that are essential to the health of cells in the body. These natural fats are absolutely essential for healthy brain function. Eat as many avocadoes as you can!
FRESH, ORGANIC FRUIT (AND VEGETABLES)
I’m recently trying more and more organic fresh foods. The cost can be prohibitive. The difference, however, to my brain, is marked. Not only is there much more flavour, but also I can literally feel my body’s gratitude upon consumption of organic goods.
When I learned I had a brain injury, I began treating the injury with anything I could think of, to reduce the trauma to the brain and to encourage growth and repair of brain tissue. My symptoms began to improve immediately, and they continue to improve.
Some things work for me, some things don’t. My goal is 100% recovery.
THE FIRST TREATMENT I TRIED
The first treatment I tried was what I now call Water Pillow Therapy. The results were astounding and instantaneous. I was exhilarated and very relieved to have found a simple way to reduce the trauma and the shock that my brain was carrying since the accident.
I found I needed to repeat the therapy as often as possible, and that improvement was gradual. After about six months of lying with my head on a water pillow, for at least half an hour each session, on as many days as I could, my aphasia (speech problems and word problems) was almost completely gone, and all my other symptoms also improved dramatically. I no longer staggered when I walked.
I then slept with a 'water pillow' on top of my usual pillow, (and with a blanket or cloth on top of the water pillow, as the water pillow was too cold to be directly under my head) every night for more than five years.
Water Pillow Therapy is perhaps the easiest and most fundamental
treatment for a Traumatic Brain Injury. For me, six months of doing this treatment every day for at least 30 minutes cured the staggering, slurred speech, aphasia, inability to count numbers, double vision, unreasonable anger, moodiness, frustration, depression and dyslexia caused by my brain injury.
The gradual dissipation of these dreadful symptoms was like being let out of prison. A relief beyond description.
Water Pillow Therapy was suggested to me by a friend who had played rugby while at school and who said that this treatment was used for any player who incurred a concussion during a match.
Quite simply, the coach would lead the player to the side of the pitch and make him lie down with his head resting on a half-empty pillow/bag filled with fluid, for at least 20 minutes. This would ensure that the concussion was healed, or almost healed, and that there would be no permanent injury.
The “trauma vibrations” would pass from the concussed player’s head to the pool of fluid upon which the head lay. A physics graduate told me that this is a principle of physics. Vibrations will pass from one pool of liquid to another pool of liquid placed next to it.
The brain floats in fluid, so it stands to reason that putting another pool of fluid next to the brain might enable the brain to pass accumulated trauma vibrations to the other pool of fluid/liquid.
I did not believe my friend's story about water pillows fixing head injuries. After several months of repeatedly suggesting this remedy to me, he said to me, "Why don't you just try it? What have you got to lose? It will cost you less than $10."
So, I tried the Water Pillow Therapy: I bought a box of wine, removed the inner “bladder” from the box, emptied about half of the wine and lay in a quiet room with my head on the half-empty “bladder”. (I put the “bladder” on top of my usual pillow, then a folded towel on top of the “bladder” which felt very cold, too cold for me to place my head on it directly.)
I tried to relax and to just let my brain do whatever it wanted to do. I could feel my brain “swinging” from side to side, in a most unstable way. It felt like a lump of hard jelly swishing back and forth in a washtub.
I just let my eyes go where they wanted. They swung from side to side, with the brain. I just allowed this to happen.
After about 10 minutes, my brain became still. It was like a pendulum that had swung from side to side, gradually getting slower, and gradually swinging a smaller distance to each side, until it came to a standstill in the centre of its field of movement.
When my brain came to a gentle stop, in the "centre", my head cleared instantly, and my brain began to “load in” information and to “wake up”. I just let it do what it wanted. I just observed.
My eyes went from left to right, then down, and from left to right again, as if they were quickly reading loads of written information on a page. Line after line, down the page. I just let this happen.
Eventually, my eyes began to focus on distant points on the ceiling, then on points near and far. It was as if they were remembering all the things they could do, and running through a test program, doing those things.
My head felt remarkably clear.
I was a bit stunned. I could not believe this was happening. It was exciting and overwhelming. I felt I had gotten my brain back.
I just lay there and let it happen. I didn't want to interrupt the "re-boot" my brain was doing.
Lots more happened. All of it beneficial.
When I finally stood up, after about 30 minutes, my whole body sort of screamed in protest. My brain only felt good when lying perfectly still, cushioned by the water pillow.
From that day onward, I began to use the water pillow. Every single symptom of my brain injury began to improve.
IF YOU HAVE A TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY, TRY THIS THERAPY. IT COSTS LESS THAN $10 TO TRY IT!
IT WORKED FOR ME. I'VE TRIED IT WITH ONE FRIEND WHO HAS A BRAIN INJURY. HE SAYS IT MAKES HIM "MORE ALERT".
That was an AMAZING testimonial on Water Pillow Therapy. I have never heard of it before. I did a quick search and couldn't find any information on this on the web. Do you have any website info? Or is this just a healing method that is an old-wives remedy?
Hi, I do not know if this is an established therapy. No-one seems to have heard of it, as a treatment for brain injury.
It was something suggested to me by a friend, in the months following my accident. He said that when he was at school he played football, and that whenever a football player hit his head during a game, the coach would make the player lie on his back on the side of the field, with his head on a half-empty wine cask, for at least 20 minutes, to clear the concussion and prevent permanent head injury.
Maybe the coach was an old-school kind of guy who knew some old-fashioned remedies. I don't know.
About 2 years after I began using this therapy, I went to a community day for people with a brain injury. It was there that I got talking to a physics graduate who told me the name for the theory, in physics ( - the theory that vibrations will pass from one pool of liquid to another pool of liquid placed next to it or on top of it).
This theory has a one-word name, but I forgot to write down the name and I can't remember it.
I just call this treatment 'Water Pillow Therapy'. My friend who has tried this treatment said I should give it a name, to make it easier to describe it.
He also said I should "tell doctors and scientists all the things that have improved your brain injury. They can use these treatments to help people." I replied to him that most doctors seem to think that those of us who have a brain injury are m*o*o*ns, and that we are the last people they are going to listen to, about anything.
I no longer tell people (especially "medical professionals") that I have a brain injury, unless absolutely necessary. I am sick and tired of the insults, discrimination, weird attitudes, ignorance and condescension. The nastiness and ignorance of most medical professionals is astounding.
I decided to post some info here on curezone, just in case it is useful to somebody who is trying to self-treat a brain injury, or is wishing to assist a friend or family member who has a brain injury.
The Water Pillow Therapy could be used by anybody, to improve concentration, memory and other brain functions.
I am glad you got the help you needed. Do you feel a hundred percent better now? Did you have surgery for your brain injury? I have some links with a few healing modalities that could help further improve and reconnect the neural patterns in your brain and spine if you are open to new ideas.
I would love to use your testimonial on my website to bring awareness to other people. How do you feel about that?
Yes, please post all information here. Yes, I am very open to trying new things, so please post any information you have. Thank you! I look forward to reading new info. and hopefully the things you might suggest are things that I will find affordable and accessible.
No, I am not 100% cured; the fatigue is the biggest problem to conquer. Still working on that. I have other health issues, too, and if I could just fix those ..... I might be 100%. Hopefully.
No, I did not have surgery for my brain injury. I was initially told that I have no injury! Apparently I have no structural damage to the brain, which is fortunate, but what that means is that the damage is microscopic.
One of the things I have learned is that when there is an impact to the head, the soft brain slams (usually forwards, then backwards etc.) against the hard casing of the skull. This can stretch, break, bend, stress, bruise or sever the tiny fibres (axons, neurons and all the other tiny fibres) in the brain. Even a tiny bruise in the brain can kill. Or have no effect whatsoever.
In 'mild' brain injuries, there is no consistent relation between the damage caused and the subsequent effects on the person. With brain injuries generally, doctors are loath to predict the outcome on the person's life. It is all quite unpredictable.
I fall in the category of those who are told they have a 'mild' brain injury, even though the injury's effects are drastic and life-changing. 'Mild' basically means that I can walk unaided and I can feed myself. It does not indicate quality of life!
Please provide a link to your website. Yes, I would be very happy to get the information out there on other people's websites, but I would like to look at the website first -- and I would quite probably write a bit more about myself if posting the info elsewhere (depending on the website).
One thing that I would probably mention is that I have created and run support groups for people who have brain injuries. Had I not self-treated my injury, I would barely be able to write a shopping list, let alone design and implement support projects for other people with health issues.
I try to motivate others, but unfortunately one of the symptoms of many people's brain injuries is lack of motivation/crushing apathy. So many people just dragging themselves through each day, never realising their potential.
Also, I saw a documentary about U.S. veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. (I live in Australia). Many service personnel's lives are being saved, but they are returning home with permanent brain injuries, which is a tragedy.
I watched the programme as veterans (a huge hall filled with several hundred of them sitting at tables), were handed five $1 notes and and were coached to count out the dollars, one by one, on the tables in front of them. I was almost shouting at the TV, "I used to be like that! I couldn't count two cents! Get them to lie down on a wine cask bladder! There is no need for them to be like that!"
I was 36 when I had my accident. Seeing young people aged in their early 20s, with brain injuries, makes me so sad.
If I were well enough, and could afford it, I would open a clinic that brings together all the therapies that actually work.
I will post more info, more things that worked for me, when I get the chance.
Also, before I began self-treating the injury, my vision and spatial awareness were so bad that, when eating with a fork and knife, I regularly stabbed myself in the face with the fork! Accidentally, of course...
A brain injury is a degrading, terrifying, outrageously unfair disability to endure. It is as if your mind has turned on itself. It is truly terrifying.
It is wonderful that you run a support group for people with brain trauma. It doesn't seem that many people are helping others who experienced Stroke, Alzheimer, Autism, Cerebral Palsy, or other brain related injuries as much as it should be. It seems like it is all swept under the rug with a 'live with it' the rest of your life attitude.
It is quite sad indeed. So, I don't accept that there is nothing we can do. Hopefully, the new information that I sent you will be useful for yourself and others that you are helping. You write well, like an expert in bio-feedback. We need more people like you - learning new therapies, healing yourself, and sharing your story.
>>This theory has a one-word name, but I forgot to write down the name and I can't remember it.
It would be nice to know more about the name and-science behind this Water Pillow Therapy. It is quite unique and looks very effective.
You have certainly gone through alot so I can really sympathize. I saw you post on the Ask Barefoot Herbalist Forum and was curious what you were into.
I have tried most of the therapies on my website and so I post information to bring more awareness to those that are suffering and in need of help. So here is some knowledge that may be of benefit to you on your journey:
BRAIN INJURY STORY:
A seven-year-old Argentine boy, Ivo Cardile, has defied doctors’ predictions that he would never walk again. Jorge Cardile was told by these doctors that his son wouldn’t be able to walk because he had suffered permanent brain damage upon being born. The father decided to take matters into his own hands. Since he is a mechanic he was good at building cars and fixing problems. Jorge invented a homemade rehabilitation device for his son to train his body to walk. This machine has proven successful and his disabled son now walks fairly well.
Unfortunately, the BBC removed this video from YouTube due to copy-write laws. Here I found another webpage that has it still intact. If you are patient to wait through the advertisement this short 2 minute video is very inspiring. You can view his video here:
We hear many children with cerebral palsy get better riding a horse a few times a week. But not many people understand why it works. The brain will make the necessary adjustments in the body when trying to continuously balance itself. Here are some PRINCIPLES of how movement-based therapies work to repair the brain.
“The Feldenkrais Method works by facilitating the formation of new neural connections and patterns, irrespective of the cause of the child’s limitations. New and effective patterns of movement, thought, and feeling are learnt.”
The Anat Baniel method:
“Movement and Awareness are the main tools utilized for communicating with the brain, providing information the brain requires in order to form missing neural patterns.”
This is the key and base therapy every good martial artist uses to heal and repair their nervous system:
STANDING STAKE METHOD:
Zhan Zhuang is the Chinese word for “standing like a post” or “standing like a tree”. This form of standing stake is a special method of spiritual training in Chinese martial arts. Static postures are used for a certain length of time in order to develop efficiency of movement and perfection of structural alignment. It is very important to those working on core issues of abuse or physical trauma. Surprisingly, it is an efficient recovery process for those suffering from stroke that often leads to partial paralysis.
If you like listening to audio then this is a new high-tech way to heal the brain and rebuild new neural pathways:
"While you are listening to the Holosync® soundtracks used in the program, your brain is creating new neural pathways between the left and right hemispheres. After approximately four months of practice with Awakening Prologue, the initial level of the program, the brain will have completed its creation of the new neural structure needed to handle the stimulus it’s been receiving."
Lastly, here are a few of my website links that you can review, research and decide what is best for you.
1. When lying on my back with my head on the water pillow, I placed my hands by my sides, with palms next to sides of the body/palms facing inwards towards the sides of the body. This was the most effective way to position the hands, for me, at least.
In other words, hands positioned the same way as when you stand with hands by your sides. Palms next to the body.
I tried lying with palms up, then palms down, then palms facing inwards to the body. I found that the best position was palms facing in to the sides of the body/palms placed alongside the body.
Hope I've explained that clearly.
2. I bought a new wine cask approx. every 6 months, emptied out about half of the wine, and used the half-full bladder as a water pillow.
If I forgot to buy a new water pillow regularly, I found that the therapy stopped working. Or that lying on the much-used water pillow made my symptoms worse.
I deduced that it is necessary to replace the water pillow approx. every 6 months, if using it every day.
3. I experimented with varying amounts of liquid in the water pillow. I think the amount of liquid needed can depend on the the size of the person's head.
Too much liquid: it's hard to keep the head on the pillow; the head rolls off the pillow.
Too little liquid: the head sinks right through to the surface below the water pillow, and no benefits are attained from lying on the water pillow.
4. I have seen "water pillows" for sale on Amazon. I do not know what these are, or if they would give the same results I achieved myself, for much less expenditure.
I would advise anybody who tries this therapy to purchase a wine cask (a box of wine) at little cost, and try the bladder half full of wine, as a first water pillow with which to experiment. Don't spend lots of money on gadgets or devices. It might be money wasted.
If you do try this therapy, please report your results here on this thread, or send me a PM. Thanks!
When I was told by doctors that there was no treatment or cure for my Acquired Brain Injury, I began self-treatment. My goal is 100% wellness.
Remedy: Nat Sulph
There are many things that have helped or continue to help my brain recover. One of these is the homeopathic remedy Natrum Sulphur (Nat. Sulph., for short) which was the first remedy prescribed for me. It is a remedy commonly prescribed for concussion and brain injury.
Homeopathy is so easy. Following instructions, I put the four tiny pillules of Nat. Sulph. under my tongue, at bedtime, at least half an hour after food, drink or brushing of teeth.
Within 20 minutes, something powerful began spreading swiftly through the most injured part (the RHS) of my brain. It was as if a fizzing Berocca drink was seeping into every crevice of brain tissue, cleansing and reactivating as it went.
For several days afterwards I had a mild headache. The “fizzing” continued for several weeks.
Three weeks after that first dose of Nat Sulph, I woke up one morning after only seven hours’ sleep, and felt well-rested.
Since my accident, I’d slept at least 12 hours every night. For the first two years, before I began treating the injury, I slept up to 18 hours each night. No matter how long I slept, I never felt refreshed. Now I generally need only 7-9 hours. Astounding!
I don't always feel well-rested, and sometimes I sleep more than 7-9 hours. But I do find that if I sleep more than 9 hours, I feel very clearly that I have "overslept", and I feel more tired than I should feel.
Since taking that first dose of Nat. Sulph., I have never again slept 13 hours, or 16 hours, or 18 hours. The remedy gave me back several more hours of each day, from that day forward.
Remedy: Apis 30
I was prescribed the remedy Apis 30 for a skin condition. My skin has improved only slightly, but the remedy caused a moderate headache deep in the injured part of my brain. It was a “good” headache, a headache that told me something curative was happening.
The morning after the first dose, the headache had gone. There was a surprise: the right side of my body felt, and continues to feel, much stronger and more synchronised with the left side – which is how it used to feel before my accident. My balance and co-ordination have improved, too.
I’ve only just started to explore what Homeopathy can do for my brain recovery. The Homeopath says there are several remedies I could try, one remedy at a time.
I recommend anyone who is on a path of self-treatment seek the assistance of an experienced Homeopath. Ask if he or she will accept whatever payment you may be able to offer. Some remedies interact with certain prescription medicines, so make sure you get good information.
Apparently there are many Homeopaths who have successfully treated patients who have brain injuries. One Homeopath I saw, for just the one appointment, said she had had a Traumatic Brain Injury, incurred in a car accident. It took her two years to cure it herself. She cured it using the Homeopathic remedies Nat. Sulph and Arnica.
Good luck, and please share your own experiences here on this thread. Your travels on the road of self-treatment could help someone like me reach my destination!
I am most probably completely cured. I have a range of other health issues, and I’m working on improving those. On days when the other health issues are at their least intrusive, I am exactly like my old self, as I was before my brain injury.
Other things that have helped cure my TBI:
I see an osteopath who does "cranial work". I was going to have some Cranio-Sacral treatments, then I found out that Cranio-Sacral comprises only a few components of the more comprehensive Cranial Osteopathy training.
Osteopaths can study “cranial work” as a post-graduate specialty.
The osteopath I see treats children and babies, as well as adults. She is a lovely person.
A few years ago, I read some writing by a guy who cured himself of Parkinson’s Disease. He said that of the practitioners he saw (for Bowen Therapy, I think, and other therapies) those practitioners who really cared about him and wanted him to get well, were the ones whose treatments were more effective.
So I chose the Osteopath because she seemed gentle and compassionate and she loves working with small children and babies.
The treatment involves lying on my back, fully clothed, on the treatment table. The osteopath does tiny movements with her fingers and hands. Almost imperceptible movements, on the back of my head, my neck, my spine.
After the first treatment, I was very relaxed and felt completely different. It was as if my body was no longer a collection of injured, hurting parts. It was a harmonious whole. It was like a choir singing. It felt like all parts of my body were calling out ‘hello’ to the other parts, and reestablishing contact. An incredible feeling.
After three, fortnightly cranial osteopathy treatments, I was able to double the amount and duration of physio I was doing. This was a phenomenal thing, at that time (c. 2011).
The effects wear off after a few weeks, or sometimes a few days, if I’m not doing regular, light physiotherapy. The physiotherapy keeps my posture and movements flowing well. Without it, I tend to become, basically, unfit.
I can afford only a few treatments each year. It is money well spent. I’ve seen four osteopaths who’ve given cranial treatments. The one I keep going back to, seems to offer the most effective treatments.
OXYSHOT, SPORTS OXYSHOT
I learnt about these products by picking up a brochure in my local health shop.
The products are bottles of liquid: oxygen contained in purified water.
When I can afford to buy it, I take maybe 1 teaspoon, a few times a day. Only a small amount needed.
I drink it on its own, or mix it in a little water. I don’t mix it with tap water. Tap water is full of chemicals and seems to make this product much less effective, or make me feel unwell.
Important to use non-metallic utensils with this product.
Important to not have too much. Too much caused me to get a headache and feel tired.
Oxyshot gives me energy; makes my brain sharper and more focussed. Increases stamina, so I can get more done, and have less fatigue.
Apparently these products were created for use by athletes. Having physical disabilities is an extreme sport, in my opinion. Anything that helps athletes gain greater endurance and sharper focus just might help someone who has a brain injury.
Try anything which claims to improve memory (check first with your Doctor or Pharmacist if you are taking other medications).
Herbs e.g. Ginkgo biloba, brahmi (these two herbs thin the blood, and so, apparently, they are not safe to take if you are already taking blood-thinning medications)
Blackmore’s Ginkgo Brahmi:
I took this for a while. It gave a subtle improvement in my brain injury symptoms. After a while, it seemed to make me feel a bit unwell; the improvement plateaued. So I stopped taking it.
Ginkgo biloba and brahmi are definitely worth trying, if you have a TBI, so long as they don't clash with any other things you're taking.
For a while, I was seeing a GP who permitted me to be connected to the oxygen tank in the rear room of the clinic.
I would sit and read a newspaper, with oxygen mask on my face, breathing normally. The mask had a tube connected to the oxygen tank. The doctor set the tank/flow to 30, I think. Not exactly sure of the measurements.
The first time I did this treatment -- I asked the doctor if I could do it -- I sat there inhaling the strong oxygen for more than an hour and a half.
Immediately after that first treatment, I met an old friend for coffee. She asked me where I had been that day; she said that she had watched me as I approached the cafe; that I had bounded down the street, full of life, with so much life in my eyes, with perfect co-ordination, that it was just like I used to be, before my accident, before my brain injury.
I have asked several medical professionals if oxygen would help improve my Traumatic Brain Injury. Every one of them said no, that maybe if I had had oxygen at the time of my accident, it might have helped, but that, months or years after the injury, there was no point taking oxygen; that it wouldn't do anything at all to improve the brain injury.
This is patent nonsense.
I believe people who have permanent brain injuries should be given regular medical appointments where they are connected to an oxygen tank and can actually get a decent burst of oxygen to the brain.
After a Traumatic Brain Injury, parts of the brain are not connecting and flowing like they used to -- those parts of the brain need oxygen! Well, that's my opinion, anyway.
Time needed for each treatment:
I found that I needed at least 90 minutes of sitting breathing the oxygen from the tank, to notice some good benefits.
Ideally, I'd have liked to do a morning session for two hours, then have a break, then do an afternoon session for two hours.
That would make a big difference, I believe, to many people who have brain injuries.
Hi, I used a few different potencies prescribed by a Classical Homeopath (a Homeopath who is fully trained and follows traditional homeopathy -- and does not follow the new, very different styles of homeopathy which are becoming popular these days).
Apparently Nat Sulph is a "deep-acting remedy". It's not a remedy that should be used freely. Some of the other remedies can be used freely, but not this one. It needs to be taken in a certain way.
Nat Sulph might not be the right remedy for any other patient. A full consultation is needed. Just taking any old remedy, willy-nilly, will not necessarily give best results.
I can only relate my own experience. My advice to anybody wishing to try homeopathic remedies, for any type of brain injury or disorder, is to seek the guidance of a very experienced Classical Homeopath (traditional homeopath).
PLUS there are homeopathic remedies that reverse the effects of drugs/medications. If autism has resulted after taking some sort of medications, that MIGHT be a solution.
I once took the wrong homeopathic remedy by mistake, and felt a bit ill. I then took the remedy the Homeopath had given me, that reverses drugs/medications/remedies. Within a few minutes I felt better.
AS FAR AS I AM AWARE only a highly-trained and experienced Classical Homeopath can provide the correct prescription. I would be wary of just taking any remedy you hear about, hoping it might work.
The remedy has to be matched to the person/the symptoms. A remedy that works for one person might not work for another.
Good luck, I hope you find some very good treatments.
Traumatic brain injury is a complex injury with a broad spectrum of symptoms and disabilities. The impact on a person and his or her family can be devastating. This is being amazing to know about your story.
I downloaded the Lifeflow demo (it runs for about 14 mins). I often play it (through headphones, or speakers) while at the computer. It helps a lot with focus and concentration.
I played it once per day for a few days, then twice a day, then three times a day (played consecutively) and so on.
Initially my brain seemed to get a real workout from simply having the soundtrack playing quietly in the background. Eventually I didn’t notice it playing, just noticed the benefits.
I built up slowly to one hour per day. One hour a day of these types of soundtracks is the limit. Any more than that tires the brain (in my experience).
Many of these soundtracks are effective only if played through headphones. The LifeFlow one, however, seems to work well, whether played through headphones or speakers.
These soundtracks play notes at certain pitches, in one ear and then the other. Stereo sound. Two channels: left channel and right channel. Left ear and right ear.
This causes the ears – and thus, the brain – to tune into each note, to listen. A note sounding in one ear and then quickly in the other seems to exercise each side of the brain; to “balance” the brain.
This in turn serves to strengthen the synapses (connecting muscles) that join the two hemispheres of the brain.
If the synapses are strengthened, messages can travel through the brain more quickly, meaning an enhanced brain function.
Well, that's the idea behind it, anyway....
Regardless of the claims made by those who sell these soundtracks, I do find them effective – for concentration, mental stamina, for stress relief and relaxation.
I have found my hand-brain co-ordination, eye-brain co-ordination and fine motor skills have improved.
I have also found that these soundtracks relax the family pets.
It has been suggested to me that these types of soundtracks, if played quietly in the background, could improve ADD/ADHD symptoms. I can't comment directly on that, as I've not tried them for that purpose.
The soundtracks can be played if there is other noise in the room, 'though I find them more effective if played in a quiet environment with little or no other noise.
I have played them quietly in a chaotic environment, to bring calm and order, and it worked.
I have begun eating 3 organic brazil nuts per day.
A relative read to me from an old natural health book, the benefits of brazil nuts, including the words, "brazil nuts give mental energy".
I have noticed a subtle difference,a positive benefit, since adding these nuts to my diet.
I particularly notice it, if I forget to eat brazil nuts each day. I feel less vibrant, less calm, less steady in my thoughts and actions.
They are definitely making a difference to my mental clarity, stamina, general feeling of brain/physical wellness. Highly recommend anybody who has a Traumatic Brain Injury include brazil nuts in the daily diet.
Two more things that are improving my brain function/helping my recovery:
1. The digestive enzyme, papain. I am trying a product called Papaya Mint Digest-Aid. Made by Nature's Sunshine. It's a bit expensive, unfortunately, but I buy it when I can.
The tablets are made from green papaya, peppermint leaf and oil, plus a little sugar.
Taken before or with a meal, they aid digestion.
Taken on an empty stomach, they seem to be clearing/cleaning the body, and after several months taking them (for a week or two, then a break of a week or two, then taking them again) I have noticed an improvement in my brain. A sort of "clearer" feeling. It's as if brain signals are travelling a bit more smoothly and cleanly.
I can only speculate what the tablets are doing. I hope the green papaya is "eating up, digesting and removing" tiny bits of built-up "debris" (damaged tissue, collected dried blood that have accumulated since my accident) in the brain. Well, that is my hope. Something beneficial is definitely happening, that is certain.
2. Brain Gym exercise. I know only one Brain Gym exercise, shown me by a friend who has a brain injury.
Exercise: move the eyes, in unison, in a horizontal figure 8 (an '8' that is lying down, on its side).
Do it several times in one direction, rest a few moments, then move the eyes in the reverse direction of the horizontal figure 8.
I hope that makes sense.
Apparently this strengthens the synapse/s that connect the two hemispheres of the brain.
I have found that doing this tires the brain, giving a feeling that my brain has "worked out". It is a good feeling.
... ... (NaturalNews) Fluoride is commonly found in tap water thanks to a process called fluoridation – which the U.S. government has been repeatedly telling us is a safe and effective way to protect teeth from decay, according to Global Research . But a recent study published in The Lancet , the world’s most renowned medical journal, has actually classified fluoride as a neurotoxin – something which has a negative impact on brain development – alongside other extremely toxic compounds such as arsenic, lead and mercury .

Not true. Your body regenerates new cells in all organs everyday, brain especially. Esophagus and stomach lining change every fifteen days. This is why fasting is even more important when body regenerates a lot of new cells, when digestive system shuts down, which BTW, takes most energy compared to other processes in our bodies.
You do not know that. Multiple people have strokes after long dry fast in Jordan. They can't all be toxic. I am not sure I can ever fast again. But either way I am detoxing and cleansing to be sure. I wish I had the answer as why so many die after long fasts. This is my 3rd stroke and number 2 was from cipro and so this may be tied in to that also.
This does not concern you at all and you are an idiot. My blood test came back that I have the blood of a 20 year old and so being an EXPERT means I know what i am talking about. I am 63 and have perfect blood, no diabetes, no high blood pressure, I don't smoke or drink. The only thing I have is that I went on a long fast.
So when you become an expert, let's talk instead of a bullshitter.
My husband has A-fib and has had four strokes. Doing amazingly well though vision loss and short term memory are a struggle. Heart rate irregular and spiking to 144 plus uncontrollable BP such as 155/112 are the norm. We are 3 weeks into Miracle-Mineral-Supplement ramped up slowly, just got to three drops per hour for 8 hours. First learned about chlorine dioxide through Kerri Rivera's work, she ramps up to much higher dose based on weight. He is also on clonidine, went off beta blockers and Micardis about the same time started Miracle-Mineral-Supplement . Any comments deeply appreciated--seeing wonderful gains with cognition and energy, just scared about the cardiovascular situation. I had suspected he had Lyme carditis. Thank you!
Magnesium is critical in cardio situations. It plays a key role in health since it is involved in so many enzymatic reactions in the body. When I did research on magnesium in the PubMed database (premier database for research), there were over 40,000 articles on the role of magnesium and cardio events.
I would suggest High Absorption Magnesium from Doctor's Best. UltraMag is another good product.
Vitamin E (natural not synthetic) is critical as well. Vitamin D levels should be checked. Other nutrients of note are selenium, vitamin C, b vitamins and others. Avoid processed foods and opt for nutrient dense foods that do not have pesticides herbicides and other chemicals, in other words choose organic.
In my opinion, I would use Miracle-Mineral-Supplement with caution (or not at all) since it is an oxidizer which causes stress on the body, with additional stress you will lower magnesium and other critical nutrients. If I was looking to kill pathogens, I would choose raw minced garlic. It has a wide range of microbe killing power and supports the cardiovascular system.
Check with your doctor to make sure the recommendations do not interfere with the medications he is on.
I would suggest you use a balanced cal/Mag 1:1 supplement such as Integrative Theraputics cal/Mag 1:1 liquid. Also drink coconut water to add the potassium. The potassium supplements can be dangerous but the food is not. The coconut water is higher in potassium than bananas.
This cal/Mag, potassium approach is the only thing that has ever stopped my arrhythmia. lowered my blood pressure. Too much magnesium will give you heart failure. Too much calcium will cause a heart attack. That's why you want to take the 1:1 ratio.
The potassium is because everyone has low potassium and it works with the cal/mag to counteract the effects of too much salt.
Start with the coconut water to see if it helps first. Then raise the amount slowly as you add the cal/mag liquid. Do all this slowly because the heart has to recover while you are doing it. If he feels bad at all STOP.
Hello and thank you for any help you might provide or even an opinion to help us find the cause of our suffering. This is a long crazy story, something akin to a bad Hollywood movie gone wrong, so I will try to be blunt, short, and to the point. For reasons I can’t explain online, I am only able to say so much. ... ... I got involved with a group of friends that apparently have a huge secret to hide and I do t know what that secret is but I do know I’m a threat to their secret. I’m affiliated with the police department through a family member, and these people I thought were friends apparently ... [This message is long. Retrieve the whole message]
A little more to add to this story. I've worked construction for ten years. Mostly remodeling and during this time I've removed enough drywall with black mold to fill ten dumpsters. I've built cabinets and worked in a screen printing shop making signs and t-shirts. Basically I've been exposed to more volatile chemicals than most, including laquour, varnish, paints, solvents, etc. One year ago I was healthy. I could grab two bundles of shingles (160 pounds) and run up a steep roof and stock them, and return to the edge for more, often lapping past most other grown men. I'm six feet tall 175 pounds and normally could run half a mile or more before tiring out. Not the greatest of health but I had strength and endurance. Lately, I'm sleeping 14 hours and still tired when I get up. The last time I tried to run, I could run a few hundred yards, and had to break for a moment. After several sprints like that, I was to worn out to go on and laid down flat on the floor gasping for air. It took over thirty minutes for my heart rate to calm down.
Other symptoms I have experienced at first were extreme sweating and drooling. My armpits felt like I had scrubbed them with sand and one time I blew my nose christalized type stuff came out. Looked like glitter.
I watched a show called prisoners handbook. There was a 12 year old boy who poisoned his own family and killed his mom. He took detailed notes, noting how much poison it took to make her throw up. Something is jus wrong in some peoples brains to think this way.
Anyway I gave the history of past exposure to occupational chemicals because it could be related somehow. I know the standard approach or advice would be to turn this person in but I can't and won't for fear of more problems. I don't know what I'm posting for but was hoping someone could help by possibly identifying what this person might have used on me. It seems the substance won't be found durrring my lifetime, at that point it will be to late. If you do, however have any ideas please throw them out there, I've been researching for ten months and can't figure it out.
Im unsure of what you mean. But yes, this person has recorded me as well as poisoned me. A friend of this person said they have recorded me a lot, mostly to make fun of me being paranoid of what's happened to me which means they sent someone else to record or somehow are using some form of electronic gizmos
I've got a new vacume vial and can send it to you if you could do anything with it. Problem is most chemicals are expelled fast and only damage remains. Testing blood for chemicals is kinda iffy because the chemicals are usually distributed through fat and organs. I wish I could get or find a Dr that would do a fat biopsy and test spinal fluids.
I am curious if anyone had any problems with the DAT (Dopamine Transporter molecule) that transports dopamine across the brain. Or in general, if anyone had any success with fixing the Dopamine Reward Pathway in the brain.
It seems like my brain is re-wiring itself to actually seek out stressful thoughts so I was wondering if limiting the amount of Dopamine would help for now until I can get out of this slump. My problem is, I don't feel anything and when I do get some kind of adrenaline or dopamine rush, my thoughts automatically start racing to thoughts outside this world, about religion, evil, Christianity and the meaning of life. It's like my brain is automatically rewiring itself to work against me and this all leads back to the Reward Pathway seeking a "fix" through these thoughts.
Tinkering with brain chemistry may be another impure thought! ;)
I would focus on parasympathetic breathing and mindfulness, and gradually make carefully considered dietary and lifestyle changes.
Low and slow will give you less to undo and allow the brain to rebalance naturally. Your question makes me wonder what interventions you've already tried that have further imbalanced natural balancing mechanisms of which we understand so little.
Why not try some magnesium, lemon balm tea, Rescue Remedy or any number of benign ways to calm racing thoughts in the mean time?
When my health was at its worst I might have had something like that. I had a very competitive, intense, "difficult" personality, but thankfully not to the point of being violent.
The semi natural doctors I worked with suggested fish oil for brain repair. It plus other things took the edge off.
A few years later my hair test prior to heavy metal detox reported very low lithium. Since it is related to intense mood I tried a few mg of Li from the Li orotate supplements.
Wow, was that nice. It produced a much more chilled out mood.
At work when things get hectic I have magnesium and glutamine around. GABA would likely work well too.
I also learned that I'm sensitive to phenols. I probably had weak Liver Phase II sulfation. My reaction to taking DHEA is consistent with that. That all seems to be much improved today.
I don't know how much heavy metal detox--Cutler-- has helped this symptom. It has helped other things such as my strange bone density problem.
Some people might have high levels of copper. That was not my issue but I can feel some extra intensity when I push the intake of it. Copper is involved in conversion of dopamine to noradrenaline.
I've heard from others who needed adrenal cortex support that had adrenaline surges. That is tricky to address. Ramp up cortex support carefully
Your problem could be different than mine but those are some leads for you to investigate.
For me it was well worth the time and effort to learn and experiment! I once put quite a bit of effort into being patient and not so intense. Now it comes rather naturally. I actually get compliments about my patience with "difficult" coworkers that I manage.
Btw. Don't expect a Big Pharma trained doctor to recommend natural solutions. They are trained to help Big Pharma's bottom line. I'm not knocking medications when needed; however, the doc won't give you all of your options. Your insurance co likely won't pay the doc to discuss those options.
The problem is, I don't have racing thoughts anymore or like some people like to call it, a thousand thoughts a minute under stress or whatever.
I have looked in to detoxing heavy metals and checking/supplementing important minerals plus some metals. I've heard that an amino acid test might also show some good indicators to what is depleted.
How did you figure out your liver did not metabolite and excrete toxins properly, specifically the Phase II sulfation part.
And I wish I was a bit more like you, patient and have a good perspective of time going by me. Sometimes I'm so concentrated on conversations I don't even think much about the reply and just respond, or am in a flight or fight response to the point where I can't even have a good perception of time.
Really want to fix this as I can't properly express myself or lead a conversation to my main point. It would seem like this is anxiety and stress, but it feels much more like my body is being stimulated at the same time my brain is being sedated.
I am new.. you gave some excellent advice on slander. And you helped me by the advice you gave someone else, so I decided to reach out too.
I along with a few siblings have become victims of a vicious and malicious lie. This lie was put on Facebook. And it was done by my daughter, she is angry because I had her removed from my dad's home. Of course, I had to take her to court, which she was found guilty of stagatory elderly abuse.
She has been the apple of the family's eye for 34 years, the betrayal is devastating to me especially because its my dad and daughter. She is displaying the personality of a diabolical socialpath. I told a relative there is nothing that we can do for her, she needs profession help and medical treatment. I will pray the universal karma won't consume her. She is spiraling out of control..
the sins of the parents fall on the kids according to the bible. its not her fault she was raised spoiled, but remember the meaning of life is making sure your children have better lives than you did, so her being spoiled is only a sin if you think it is.
i'd say forgive her so she won't be angry anymore, if you still want a relationship with your daughter. she only hurt your feelings because she felt she was hurt by you. she is a human being just as you are, and a direct reflection of you.
humble yourself and make the first move of compassion, if not then leave things bitter.
both the parents and adult children suffer in the latter choice, and the cycle of not forgiving, anger, and bitterness, continues when her children hurt her feelings later on when you are in heaven, and she sees them as you see her now..
set an example of love that she can learn from and if not for her sake, for your future grandchildren and the legacy of your family.
lastly forgiveness never means allowing yourself to be hurt now or in the future, it means to move on from being hurt in the past.
Give up the fantasy she's such a wonderful child. She's a young adult lashing out at being tough loved.
Don't bother to read Facebook if you get your poor little feelings get hurt so easily there (and it seems you definitely do), eh? (they really are spying on everyone out of control so no loss) or if you just have to keep facebook, unfriend her and unfriend anyone who reposts her stuff.
It's a power game--if you act as though your world's ended and you're devastated beyond endurance, she wins and the abuse will just continue. She wants to punish you for daring to stand up to her.
Let's do a quick review--YOU are the parents, SHE is the child. My guess is you guys haven't got that relationship straight. Just avoid and distance her for now, she's in 'hurt mom and dad' mode, nothing's fixable as long as she is. Remind yourself you're trying to break some very unhealthy family dynamics here, part of which belongs in your lap, for letting this pattern get set up to begin with.
You surely know how counter dependent teens and young adults are; just tell them you don't want contact anymore and like any rebellious kid that's most likely what she'll want but keep her at bay until you see some real evidence of change. She may pretend so she can get close again to 'punish' you again.
And if she severs the relationship anyway, understand YOU can't 'fix' her, never could and lawsuits are just petty ways to avoid REAL confrontation. If need be, just let her go. I'm betting she'll be back if you can resist falling back into the 'ohhh poor meee I've loooost myyy babyy' box. Be an example of adult behavior.
Double masters in system counseling here. My further advice, get your self fixed instead of chasing this debacle around town and learn how be the adult you want her to be. That's bound to help far more than a law suit.
I just decided recently (to my deep regret) to get the 3D cone beam dental panoramic xray. this was certainly the biggest mistake I have made in my past 20 years in natural health.
forget what all the weblinks show about how its 90% less radiation and all the other lies. it is in fact very difficult to find any info on this subject. the truth is after I got xray, I was dizzy for 2days.....could not drive my car or go out of the house for 3 days. I am still experiencing sever naseau...weakness....body shakes...memory loss... and my body temp dropped 2 whole points. I know because i take it regularly.
so if anyone is thinking of doing this xray, forget it, it is very dangerous regardless what the drug and implant salesmen say. THEY LIE BIG TIME.!!
yes it does show cavitations on lower jaw,(not too much on upper)but at what cost.?? its been a week and I am still disabled and do not know if t his is temporary or if I am permanently disabled from this xray. common sense only stands to reason to get a 3D image they are going to have to use stronger radiation and penetration.
so the alternative is to use the bio modulator device by dr Jerry tenant or a cavitat. eventhough it is more costly, believe me it is cheaper in the long run when you still have your health.
so get ready to hear all the drug and implant salesmen to tell you how unscientific my post is.....but are you really willing to bet your health and life on it....?
if you ever do have to get an xray...I suggest...never get the panoramic...but just the single digital xrays only on the area of pain or problem.....and make sure you have a thyroid shield before you go to the DR's office...dont rely on them to have it like i found out...
Hi, can you explain why no pano and why a cavitat is better for your body? I recently declined the cone beam scan from a dentist (he thought I was crazy when I said it's too much radiation for my thyroid) and researching options. Thank you!!!
Many of the newer X Ray machines are considered lower dosings of x-rays,than we can get from other real world sources(still doesn't make them less inimical to tissue and vascular health tho). I don't really know about that but the cavitat is a fluoroscope, a bit safer and it picks up the infection where a regular tecnique X ray wont. But expensive, $800 a scan or more here.
well its wed, know and I am feeling worse today, I thought i was getting better but its just the morning that my headache goes down it returns as the day progress's and I have to ice it for several hours every night, the GI trouble have subsided I suspect maybe the amoxcillin cause the loose stool, but back to my main problem I suspect my brain is swelling up, maybe a meningitis &/or encephalitic reaction? they back of the right side of neck to the ear hurt & I started to massage it with my hands and it seemed to relive pressure on my brain & eye, I thought maybe the veins &/or Lymph were clogged with dead tissue so I massaged real good and it seemed to be helping, but this morning I woke up and my right shoulder is know also hurting real bad like what was in my brain is also in my shoulder know they both hurt very bad, the rest of me is feeling a bit better than the past two weeks. I am still unsure if this is just a overdose of IVM or a reaction to die-off? it has been 15 days since IVM dose, I can not see out of right eye it does come back a little after ice for 4 hours, well I dont know what todo ?
I tried a 1 &1/2 tsp of piperazine today too hopefully kick in my immune system, so far no bad effects we will see in the morning I might be forced togo try the ER.
so I am gonna close this post as I am loosing focus again
Brain kills are dangerous, back down slightly on the anti-parasitics till you can feel it out.
Bump up on Piperazine Citrate, it will lower the pain. Keep the maximum dose below 3 tablespoons, 2.5 Grams per day, only for a few days, then go back to 1.5 Tablespooons.
I use Deoxycycline for brain swelling bacteria. it works in a few hours, I took 200mg. Two days should do it.
Bump Vitamin A and C.
Drink plenty of fluids, stay in bed.
Cranberry juice with 12 drops of KGP Flush.
>>>>>White willow bark, say less than 5 per day, like natural asprin. No blood clots. Thins the blood.
Bump Ginkgo to 4 per day. Keeps capillaries from clogging. If you need, go to 6 per day, no more.
D3 modulates the kill, Back off until you can handle the pain. I went to 50,000 IU for 4 days, the kill was intense, I thought I would die, At 25,000 IU the kill will be slower, at 5000 IU the kill should be much slower.
I only do IVM for sweats, best to pulse.
Dodder seed and Magnesium Citrate are essential every day. MSM is helpful too, if the PH falls, eat bananas, Potassium Citrate. Restart the rest of the bunch as you can get out of bed.
omg! it hurts, started doxycycline
i wonder if its a big ass worm that is on the run!
thats what it feels like, I swear I can feel it slowly moving thru vein or artery it went from my right eye tomy neck then my shoulder then to armpit then to arm know its moving thru spinal column twords my heart!
this thing needs to die! hmmm coq10? massive dose? heart kill ? they are still crawling out my nose?
how could they not see that in a CT scan?
my immune system has to be kicking there ass!
I only took that one dose of IVM a month ago & 2 teaspoon of piperazine a week ago and 2 teaspoon of piperazine tonite. I hope that doxy starts kicking butt, i am about dead, wholly shit
Deoxycycline causes the worm to be healed from bacteria, they use it to digest, and become more acid and toxic. It helps remove their shield. As they die, they release more and more of their toxins, I got a headache and yes the brain swells a bit, don"t worry.
Are you taking DEC to keep your circulation system clear of worms? It forces worms to live in the lymph system. This is very very important, you do not want a heart attack or stroke.
Send me your email,
I will send you the latest final formula, I now alternate praziquantel and albendazole. It starves them, then feeds them anti-parasitics. Makes the process go a whole lot faster.
It is never good to have worms in your circulation system, it hurts like hell.
My sinuses are finally my own. It feels great just to breath air again. Remember, these guys have to find a blood vessel to feed. Follow the formula exactly if you want the fastest kill possible.
Once they start dying, you will shit black. Get ready to lie down, have food, water, a toilet handy.
They do not see them in the CT scan because they are tissue, the brain pushes on them, if you look in the lymph tissue around the skull you can see them, if you look behind the sinuses, very slowly stepping between the cat scan layers, you will see them attached. Look at the base of the skull, you will see their skins they shed, piled up where the brain stem goes to the spine.
They either see them, or they are blind. Again if you are not looking, they are not there, we do not have parasites in this country!
Stop rubbing IVM on your skin, that is like another dose.
Take the piperazine at the times I specify. AM/PM, every day smallest dose you can get by with.
You will need many bottles. As you kill them and they die, you start to feel the actual pain that they have caused in the brain. I am down to 1 teaspoon AM, one teaspoon PM. When I wake, the pain in the brain is bad, but my clarity, vision, and brain are in full recovery. The spirulina is essential to repair the damage they caused. I expect to taper for at least a month, the pain in the brain can be that bad. I expect that the toxins and removal of the parasite debris is also causing some of the pain. Thank god piperazine takes away the brain pain. Use it as lightly as possible, it may hide to much pain.
How is your eye, has the vision returned,. do you tale daily white willow bark and Ginkgo?
thanks for info on Amoxcillin, as no-one said anything about that I ever should have taken it , it made swelling in my brain ten-thousand times worse, i did end up having to go ER, they gave me steriods & different antibiotic and its working the pain is going down, i have gone this whole month sick stuck in bed with this swelling and my friends kept recommending amoxcillin! and not giving any warning about it! as soon a i switched to doxycyline(thanx matt) bamn 24hrs later i am getting better, i am so upset I lost this entire month to this, so f***ed up
well i gotta alot todo today as I am out of food I have'nt been out of bed for couple weeks except for trip too ER and need to wash linens & bath

A simple answer to this is that your head is not getting a good blood flow. The external AIDS do not work or have anything to do with your headache.
There are many reasons one could have regular headaches.
Food allergies nitrates in meats
Blockage in blood vessels
Till you find the real cause, you may try deep abdominal breathing, take turmeric before bed time (one teaspoon with a glass of water), eat cayenne paper in raw form with your foods, Eliminate sugar, exercise - preferably yoga, and lasty meditation.
If you share some more information about your lifestyle, I may be able to help with more details
I've recently had my belief system completely turned on its head by using out micro-current devices. This things are miracle machines and I've been telling anyone who will listen about them.
My latest listener is one of my health practioners. He's a great guy who has restored himself to great health suffering from pesticide poisoning and an all around unhealthy life style.
He's 60 years old and although his physical health is great he said he still suffers from brain fog and memory problems, and it seems to be getting worse with age. I can tell he's worried about it.
He's delighted about all the miracle stories I've told him dealing with micro-current devices and is putting his faith in me to find him a device that will help out his brain.
although I have a few devices in mind I'm just scratching the surface of this type of medicine and don't want to make a recommendation just yet.
What are the best devices for not only helping induce healthy brain wave activity but also perhaps heal and restore the brain. I'm looking now at the brain tuner and this device called the earthpulser. (i believe magnetic microcurrents might be the answer as well.)

This is interesting indeed.
I don't use electricity for the same goal as you, but i am interested in others ways to use it.
Can you explain with more details what you mean by "induce healthy brain wave activity but also perhaps heal and restore the brain."
you wrote....'ve recently had my belief system completely turned on its head by using out micro-current devices. This things are miracle machines and I've been telling anyone who will listen about them....
Interesting... Which miracle machine did you use to get these results?
Hopefully this message can be a response to both you guys.
I'm a CFS/CFIDs sufferer and
last oct. i came back to a high altitude desert after living at sea level for 3 months. It was the worst I had remembered feeling in a long time. No matter how much water I drank i'd feel dehydrated, my whole body was in pain and discomfort, intense brainfog.
My symptoms were getting worse every day so I went to see my alt. health practitioner to have a live blood analysis.
His results were just what I suspected intense dehydration and poor circulation in my blood cells, they were stuck together as if they had static electricity.
He had just gotten in a new micro-current device...i forgot the name of it but its not the one I use now anyway. and told me it might help with my allergies, figured what the heck i'll give it a try.
I hooked the pads up to my feet and within 10minutes I felt a cooling/hydrating sensation throughout my arms, and ATP energy building all the way up to my chest/heart, This is some what of a miracle because sensations of ATP energy are not something you have when suffering from CFS. I've only ever had this when taking liposomal vitamin C. another miracle product. (although it wasn't saving me from my current misery)
I called in my doc and told him he needed to check my blood again this thing was fixing me, he said impossible it cant work that fast (he was new to micro-currents). I convinced him that it was so he checked it again. He was astounded my blood cells were now hydrated and flowing with what looked to be a 90% improvement. brain flog was clearing and I had energy for the next 5 hours.
Nothing short of a miracal, I went home and found this device online
and promptly purchased it...you can find the unit for cheaper prices around the net.
I've been getting the same results on it. I've even hooked it up to my head and have had noticed HUGE effects of brain wave entraining. ( BE CAREFUL WITH THAT THOUGH MAKE SURE THE DEVICE YOUR USING IS MEANT FOR THAT the microII is not, however if you know what your doing with it you might be able to get some beneficial brain results from it)
So after it worked so well on me i've since tried it on others and have had the same miraculous effects with decresed pain and perhaps most amazing at all my friend with a half dead arm.
His broke his arm 5 years ago destroying the motor nerve. His arm is almost completely atrophied and can only get like 30%usage /movement out of it...hardly any cirulation at all.
He put the microII on it and within 10minutes full circulation returned and after continued usage he's starting to regain some movement.
I've also started the Beck Protocol and am convinced its going to cure my CFIDS.
I think micro-current technology is going to make western medicine obsolete and should be the focus of 80% of this website....who knows maybe one day it will
It's like mega-doses of earthing. I've seen videos of people with Parkinson stop hand shakes after using it for only a few hours, the inventor of the machines dog has been sleeping on it for 7 years, is 16 years old but looks like it hasn't aged 1 day.
I prob wouldn't believe the videos but some of the worlds leading magnetic therapy Dr's including the worlds leading earthing proponent are advisers for the product.
I'm really not sure at this point if the micro-II should be used on the head to try to alleviate depression. I would have to do more research comparing it to the bt7. (maybe i'll start a new post trying to get some of the experts to weigh in on this.) I'm not even sure if its safe to use on the head.
However the good news is I do have some advice I think that can help immensely.
At about the same time I started using the microII I tried out a new supplement called moringa. To call it a super food is really an injustice its more like some mythical plant from a fantasy novel or something. They're just discovering it in africa and are calling it the "miracle plant" or "tree of life"
The leaf alone has every vitamin in it at 7 to 15x the amount fruits or vegs that are associated with that vitamin have. ( for instance the leaf has 7x the vitC of an orange 15x the calcium of milk, 7x the protien of yogourt and so on.)
It also has every essential amino acid in it.
The first day I and my 4 friends took it we all noticed significant brain energy in only about 10minutes.
I have 4 experience I can directly/indirectly speak to since then.
-Since then I've given some to my epileptic friend who has having small seizures all day every day for the past 6months, within 2 days she hadn't had so much as an eye twitch...and has been telling her family and friends all about it calling it a miracle.
-My and my mother have CFS/cfids and have been taking it both are experiencing significant brain fog clearing and mental energy. So much so that I don't even feel like the same person.
-the practitioner that recommended it to me was had just been recently reminded about the plant because after speaking with his patient with ALS (or some degenerative disease I can't quite remember which), that has mysteriously been alive for 15years when every DR. and medical book written said nobody is supposed to live past 5 years with her condition, and she just recently told him she has been eating moringa leaves (i don't know if they are fresh or dried) every morning for breakfast for the past 15 years. He thinks it has been keeping her alive and from some of the reports I've been reading in Africa I thin so too.
-The dried powdered leaf can be bought online for 20-30$ a pound.
So the point of my long winded rant is that I have been using the microII and moringa powder in combination and have had some intense depression lifted from myself.
My understanding is this the MicroII is proven to create ATP cellular energy in your body some of which gets pumped into your brain, the healing fequencies also are picked up from your feet and hands at have effect on the brain.
and the Moringa supplies your brain with an amino acid balance and nutritional boost, also energy boost that can be felt almost immidietly. I think this would have to improve there mental condition a great deal.
If anything maybe just have try the moringa powder first, if feel improvment and want another boost then try the micro too. If you try these please contact me and let me know how it goes, i'm very curious and love giving people advice in this matters...your friends experiences may validate me doing so
chemicalsense, wow, I love your testimonies; thank you!
I will order the moringa from your link, with $15 shipping for 1 lb, it 's still cheaper than buying from UK.
Last few days I have just started using the Earthing sheet to sleep on; it claims the electron from earth will feed the body & to neutralize the free radicals & inflammation & thus help healing, pain relieve etc; so far I feel it boost circulation & I feel very warm with lots of tingling & muscle twitching, nerve jumping & subtle pain here & there; very interesting indeed!
"A middle-aged aboriginal man with a history of alcoholism and gastrectomy was diagnosed as having bacterial meningoencephalitis based on the typical clinical manifestations, laboratory findings, and treatment responses. During the recovery stage, he developed consciousness disturbance, seizures, severe diarrhea, and respiratory failure that led us to search for other possibility of the diagnosis. The eosinophilia and repeated stool examinations helped us to make the diagnosis of disseminated strongyloidiasis. In this patient the initial bacterial meningitis was followed by S. stercoralishyperinfection. Despite treatment with strong antimicrobial agents, the patient died. This case could serve as a reminder to physicians to be alert for strongyloidiasis."
I knew a young lady who died of meningitis and now I am beginning to suspect that was what happened to her. She was sick for a while and then rushed to the hospital and died.
I wonder if it was their approach to curing her that actually killed her. Giving her the wrong medicines without acknowledging worm connection might have did her in. I am still trying to put the dots together on what caused her death. she was in her twenties. How sad. This happened in US.
