I'm looking for ways to help ease the joint pain and swelling I have. Diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis (The only psoriasis I have is a small circle on my right ankle, about the size of a pencil eraser. It is so small it rarely bothers me) after the birth of my daughter in 2013. I began the Autoimmune protocol diet, had my Amalgams removed, chelated,started taking Low Dose Naltrexone, and was feeling really good for the past year. Now, I'm 17 weeks pregnant and having immense joint pain and swelling in my right foot, right wrist, and left middle finger. Blood work shows that my ESR and CRP are high, other than that everything is normal. My quality of life is quickly declining and I'm not enjoying this pregnancy at all. I can't walk for more than 5 minutes without having to sit down or use a cane/wheelchair.
Here is a list of the things I do daily to help, but they don't seem to be working anymore:
-Supplements include: Wobenzyme,Fish Oil,Probiotics,Pre-natal vitamins, Vitamin D, Vitamin C, Turmeric/Curcumin.
- Epsom Salt Baths several times a week.
Long story short: raw honey mixed with a “hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, vitamin E” serum, left in the hair overnight, wrapped in a flour sack towel (or shower cap). Recommended once every other night for four weeks. Then as often as you want.
After the four weeks (or in the midst of), consider combining hemp seed oil and Glover’s “dandruff control topical medicine” and leaving in hair overnight as well.
Let me know how it works for you!
I’ve battled scaling, redness, and flakes on my scalp for the past 10 years (I’m 24 now, so this has plagued much of my life so far). Only recently have I found a treatment that has given me amazing results - after many failed attempts.
I had heard about the raw honey treatment for a while, but who seriously has a three hour block of time every other day to sit at home with honey in your hair? (I’ve got a life to live, people!)
So I decided to take a risk and leave it in overnight. I wrapped my head with a flour sack towel from Walmart (I didn’t want to sleep with a noisy shower cap, and I aim to reduce plastic exposure as much as possible). I tied the rag like a bandana, except with the knot in the front, so I could actually lie down to sleep.
This helped! I experimented with adding other ingredients to the honey mixture with varying results (freshly pressed raw garlic, Sea Salt , bee pollen, noni fruit powder). You’re welcome to experiment with some of these to see if they help.
However, the most effective mixture came from mixing in a skin serum I got off Amazon. It contains vitamin C, vitamin E, and (important) hyaluronic acid which pulls in moisture from the air. I used the stuff from “Radha Beauty,” but I’m sure there are others that will work equally well. (I have no affiliation with this company.) http://a.co/bRtF8QF
[Note: make sure you are using truly raw honey. It should be nearly solid at room temperature and a light yellow - not a runny dark amber. I tried some local “raw” honey that was runny and dark, and it didn’t help at all. It actually made the problem worse. I waited a couple weeks and tried again with the real stuff. Worked like a charm. Make sure the honey is completely unprocessed.]
I mix a few large spoonfuls of raw honey, a TINY bit of warm water (don’t want it to be too watery or else it runs down your face), and two tinctures full of the skin serum. I apply it to my entire scalp, rub it in for 1-2 minutes, wrap my head, and go to bed. It comes out easily in a morning shower. It has worked GREAT for me!
My sister recently asked about the state of my scalp, so I showed her - she was VERY impressed. She cuts my hair, and has often been grossed out by the lumps and scales. Not anymore! My scalp is clean and healthy.
I’ve also been getting compliments that my hair looks thicker. It definitely seems like it! (But I’ll wait to see if this continues.)
The important thing is that the scaling is 99% gone, redness 99% gone, flakes probably about 95% gone, and my scalp feels healthier overall. This is a HUGE weight off of my shoulders.
I’ve also recently added a mixture of hemp seed oil and Glover’s “dandruff control topical medicine” (http://a.co/gdUBt0e) into the rotation. Now I switch off between the raw honey / skin serum and this new mixture every other night. At this point, it’s been about 5-6 weeks and I’m still doing this every two nights, mostly because I want to see continued hair growth and I don’t mind doing it. Honestly, it makes my hair feel great.
Note: this is a treatment, not a cure. Also, I am not a doctor. Just a long-time researcher and human guinea pig.
It is my understanding that seborrheic dermatitis is a systemic issue. It is deep rooted, and most likely caused by an imbalance of fungus and harmful bacteria in your gut. It can ONLY be healed through very intentional nutrition over time.
Essentially, three things are required to experience long-term healing:
1.) repairing the gut wall,
2.) getting rid of the bad bugs, and
3.) getting more of the good bugs.
Each of these has many rabbit trails, but that’s the core focus of “healing the gut.” This treatment is proving to be very helpful in the short-term while I work diligently to heal my gut long-term.
If you’re curious about my gut healing protocol, here are few things that are helping…
• Supplementing with liposomal colostrum from Sovereign Laboratories
• Drinking about bone broth (about 48 ounces a week)
• Eating raw sauerkraut (and kimchi)
• No gluten or wheat, and very few oats and rice
• Gradually eating more vegetables, and less sugar
• Drinking my most recent invention, “Pau-R Tea!” (Haha pau d’arco tea mixed with a spoonful each of coconut oil, ACV, and raw honey. Delicious and healing.)
• Taking a broad-spectrum probiotic
• Supplementing with collagen peptides
• Occasionally drinking concentrated aloe vera juice
• Cycling through (natural) antifungals such as oregano oil, caprylic acid, pau d’arco, etc.
All of these have been really helpful in this healing journey so far.
I would REALLY be curious to hear how this topical treatment works for other people. Hopefully this is a solution that will help MANY of us beat this issue as quickly as possible. Please let me know how it works for you, and pass it on if you know of anyone suffering.
I had bad candida for over 8 years and I knew that it was serious and I had to do something about it when I couldn’t go to toilet for seven days. My own symptoms were: constipation, irregular and infrequent bowel movement, bloating, psoriasis, eczma, extreme tiredness, jock itch, arrythmia, and low energy all the time, overweigtht, insomnia and I caught every bout of cold or flu that was in my area without fail because of a much weakened immune system. There are are over 20 possible symptoms of candida, and these symptoms will always vary between different candida sufferers.

Personally I believe with opening up the liver bile ducts like that taking Chanca Piedra worked as one of the key players, as did the coconut oil. There are many people on this forum that don't believe in 'liver flushes' so that won't impress them. Can I ask how you took it? Just powdered herb or did you brew Chanca Piedra tea? I have both types from Whole World Botanicals.
The aquatic supplies were interesting, like the Methylene Blue- and it give energy like that? Is it completely safe for consumption?
Anyway glad to hear your body responded well. Thank you for posting.
Hi LBP...Much thanks for your comment. Interesting that you mention Chanca Piedra, this is one heck of a herb. When I took it for my candida, after about two weeks, I started to get hard pea-like or stone-like things being excreted in my faeces. I realized that I was dumping all my gallstones!! Chanca piedra isn't called "StoneBreaker" for nothing !! Another of its effects is that it clears kidney stones and can also cure Hepatitis B in 20 days. Very powerful herb.
I now live in the Philippines -- in the Tropics -- and all the herbs I use -- Chanca piedra, Heart Vine(Tinospora cordifolia), Neem and Tumeric now all grow in my garden, so I make my decoction pesonally from the freshest possible ingredients. Just one of the herbs -- Heart Vine -- I have used to successfully treat people with arthritis, gout, diabetes and candida. Apart from other effects, this herbal mixture will reduce inflammation, reduce pain, reduce blood pressure, reduce blood sugar and is a diuretic(kidney protective). Heart Vine is little known -- although it is an Indian Rasayana herb, a much revered and much respected herb in Ayurvedic medicine.
The way I take this herbal mix is measuring an amount equal to three fingers on the side of the glass. Then I add a little orange juice, add water and drink it. It's extremely bitter -- all the herbs rely on something called The Bitter Principle. I'm currently treating a friend of mine who has primary bone cancer(ribs) with metastased secondary melanoma and lymphoma. I've given this herbal mix to him mainly to ease the pain, but it should also lower his blood pressure, support his liver and kidneys and clean his blood and actually attack the cancer as well.
Anyone who doesn't believe in liver flushes really doesn't know what they are talking about. The liver is the chemical factory of the body, and if the liver is healthy then, generally, the immune system is also strong and healthy. All the Max Gerson Cancer Therapy consists of is treating the liver with vegetable juices, raw liver juice, coffee enemas and large amounts of potassium salts. So all he was really doing was alkalizing the cancer body at the cellular level and defending the liver.He had a documented success/cure rate of 50% for Stage 4 cancers and an 80% cure rate for all other stages of cancer. So his method was very effective. See this link.
Methylene Blue has been used for over 100 years against malaria and was also used by American Forces in Vietnam for this reason. MB is also a super mitochondrial anti-oxidant, and really boosts respiration performance at the cellular level -- ie gives you energy. I use it all the time if I am tired or if I have a stressful event coming up. It only takes 2 drops and it works a treat.
Slowsmile, what a great post, i hope many people chose your healing option. Im 30yo and 2 years ago i started felling really bad i had pretty much all symptoms and every time i visit a doctor he thought i was crazy like i need medical attention (Hypohondriac) last summer got really bad i start feelling numbness on my legs my muscles were twiching both arms and legs for no reason so i decided to take an action in my own hands and went on a diet. Not knowing what was wrong with me I eliminated sugar, no alchohol, and i preety much ate only green vegtables and i was cooking suops and in few days i started feeling better and after awhile i was back on my normal food maybe a little less junk food (snacks) then before but i was doing good. 2 months ago it happened again and i did a little research online and found Candida. Omg if i only knew before i would feel much better. Since then i m reading and reading and one month i was with no Sugar and pretty much on candida diet but all that time i ate most of the fruits like bananas which are loaded with Sugar so i knew i had to start all over again and i came to this daily menu and Now i am two weeks on this diet
- 2 tablespoons flaxseed oil
- 5 tablespoons no fat Cottage cheese mixed with organic grinded flax seed and 1 - tablespoon GreekLowFatYogurt for better taste
-5 tablespoons no fat Cottage cheese mixed with organic grinded flax seed (regular is good to )
and 1 - tablespoon GreekLowFatYogurt for better taste
- Big mixed salad (only greens)garlic, ginger in every salad.... red peppers have a lot of suggar so i eat only green peppers
- 5 tablespoons no fat Cottage cheese mixed with organic grinded flax seed and 1 - tablespoon GreekLowFatYogurt for better taste
I drink 5 bottles of water a day and I squeze some lemon juice in each And i make juices from vegies like cellery and i can tell you i never felt better in my life and it's only been two weeks. I lost 15 pounds my abbs poped out without working out at all. I know my menu sounds crazy like how could you eat so little but when i read the stages of Candida i was on Stage 4 and Stage 5 can kill you i knew i have to do it hard way and it is all worth it. Let me mention that i m 6.1 and i was 192lbs before and now i m 174lbs in two weeks oh and let me mention that i take at least three baking soda enemas through week with very warm water and for getting back good bacteria in intestines i am taking probiotic digestive support capsules.
I was eating everything while having Candida and never realized the food was the problem, (suggar) but the cause of Candida was probably antibiotics and i had em a lot in my life and the last time i took em was 4 months ago taking infected tooth out.
I will always be carefull what i eat from now on we don't need all that junk food in our lives and potato chips and stuff are the worse and my belowed icecream is out for good there are manty way to treat myself the only problem is i loved to drink alchohol from vodka to beer and and summer is really time for drinking and i can't touch anything beer itself has yeast and all alchohol is loaded on suggar and best Candida feeder. I saved your post because i will use a lot of your techniques and one thing i m really interested is those herbs and i live in Florida do you think i can find em here ? Thank you again for your post i loved it and i hope many people see it.
Hi jfc772...Thanks for the comment. Very interesting your protocol for candida, which is essentially the Budwig Diet which is used against cancer. And yeah, you're absolutely right, candida is horrible I'm right with you there.
My take on illness is that it is a continual battle against heavily chemically processed foods and drugs which we are all forced to eat and take. But make no mistake, I love going out, having a gathering, maybe drinking one over the top occasionally. When I have deviated I know exactly what to do -- normally I simply alakalize the next day. And once a month, for 7 days I take my fresh herbal mix as a safe and gentle detox. Other than that I have become very aware of my body, I know when I'm not right, not healthy, so I take steps to put myself back into that healthy zone. I do stuff like look at my faeces, is it too hard, too soft, the right colour etc. I look at my fingernails which can tell you alot and I often look at my tongue which can tell you all about your intestines and main organs. It's taken a few years, but this is worth learning.
Hi again and thnx for response.
Right now I'm doing Liver Flush as I saw some videos on utube and i couldn't believe my eyes what we carry inside. I am 100% sure i have the stones cause i was constipated for years and i thought going once 3-4 days is not that bad but my partner has bowels every morning. Will olive oil and grapefruit juice have any bad influence on my Candida diet ? I still fell incredebly great this diet has changed my life when i wake up I feel I'm like a little kid when everything seams to be great, i started to notice small things in life and appreciate everything more each day. I was really brain fogged and I'm happy i got out of this mess. I still carry a fear that i might be to late as i read all the connections between Candida and Cancer and my Colon and Livers were suffering for years. I was a party guy always drinking smoking eating a lot but i was never fat in my life, if I tell you my best snack is frenchfried potatoes that tells you a lot, had tons of chips and other salty products and Captain Morgan and Coke was my favorite drink (now i see i drank the worst for my liver)after this Liver Flush i'm going to start coffe enemas and when the month is over I'm gonna start living a healtier life. Do you think 4 weeks of my diet will be enough to get out Candida for good so i can start eating normal food again ??? And please tell me about those herbs i would like to find em here so i can grow some on my own, i have a nice house with a pool and i have a perfect spot for growing. Thank you again, I wish many people would open their eyes and see that you csn do something good for yourself to live a long happy life.
Hi jfc772....It took a whole year to cure myself of systemic candida and, really, I guess it's up to you when you feel well enough to quit a protocol. But even now, I still take maintenance doses of all that I recommend on a weekly or monthly basis. I do this because I really hated the way candida made me feel.So I never want candida in my body again.
I took a year to cure my own candida because I was a bit lax with my own diet which wasn't that bad -- I don't eat junk food, take much sugar or drink coke etc anyway, but I do like eating out and and having drinks with friends. So, I developed my own strategy of recovering my healthy zone the day after, say, I eat the wrong food or drink too much. This strategy is simply to mainly alkalize and mineralize like crazy the next day to get my body back into its correct healthy pH zone. Seems to work fairly well.
But with the new candida protocol that I have shown here, I reckon that you can cure systemic candida in about 4 months.
The Budwig recipe of flaxseed oil in cottage cheese is very similar to the principle used in the Candida Remedy called Wondro. Mixing flaxseed oil with the sulfur amino acid cysteine found in cottage cheese forms a chemical that absorbs the acetaldehyde from yeast.
You can make Wondro by cooking elemental sulfur in flaxseed oil. There is also a Wondro substitute made by mixing N-acetyl-cysteine and flax. Here is a link to information about Wondro and how to make it.
Hi Slowsmile, thanks for your post. I was just wondering if Methylene Blue can be used to treat fungal skin infections such as ringworm which I'm also suffering from in addition to the candida. I know you said it's deep acting but the skin seems so hard to treat even when using topical and internal drugs/herbs together.
Also, do you happen to know a place that pharmaceutical grade MB can be obtained. I've read snippets here and there that other grades are often contaminated with heavy metals. Thanks.
Hi slate01...Normally you would use Methylene Blue orally as described in my original post. Methylene blue will also stain you skin blue.
For all topical problems on the skin, I use an equal mix of 3% hydrogen peroxide + milk of magnesia(or Epsom Salts) and then just saturate this solution with borax crystals (20 Mule Team Borax ifine) until they no longer dissolve. I make small amounts -- a capful at a time to use and just dab it onto the skin using a cotton bud. This mix will kill all fungi, yeast, bacteria, parasites and viruses topically and is quite safe to use.
I just buy the Methylene Blue from Aquarium shops, this is good enough quality. After all, fish are very sensitive to heavy metals and toxic substances in their water(more sensitive than us), so this form of methylene blue has to be fairly pure otherwise nobody would use it for their fish.
Thanks slowsmile. I probably didn't word my last post very well. I was actually trying to ask if taking MB internally would also be effective in treating fungal infections of the skin as I find it a hassle applying things topically everyday. Taking something orally is far more convenient. Thanks again.
Heart Vine(Tinospora cordifolia) is a tropical herb used by the Indian Ayurvedic natural medicine system. You might be able to find it on the internet or in a local Indian grocers or deli. Generally, heart vine is found in some Ayurvedic preparations such as Triphala, Chaywanprash etc. -- and Heart Vine is called "Guduchi" or "Giloy" in various Indian dialects.
Hello. Thanks for the info. Have you ever heard of the natural sweetner called Swerve? If so, is it comparable to Stevia? Thanks.
Swerve is made from erythritol, produced from corn. It is not as sweet as stevia or even sugar. But they are adding other ingredients that they are not divulging. Even on the label it states other natural flavors. This can pretty much anything, and playing hide and seek with ingredients like this can be dangerous. Other natural flavors can also include possible allergens that people need to be aware of.
I took 1,000 mg pure tryptophan and 500mg 5HTP last night. How long should I wait to try low dose methylene blue (1 drop 2.3%) in 1/2 gallon water? I have been using borax occasionally and Hydrogen peroxide but they have not improved my burning eyes. Hopeful the methylene blue will help the eyes. Thanks
Your protocol has been a very big help to me. I've been doing your protocol since March 2011 and recently I will occasionally reduce your recomendations because I'm doing better. For me, about a week after stopping methylene blue I'll be very lethargic, but I don't notice much when stopping all of the other things, including the borax. I also take Neem, Guduchi and Chanca Piedra, all of which you've also presented here at curezone, and my shoulder and hip pain have been reduced quite a bit.
I see you are still taking borax with Iodine regularly. Is systemic candida a condition that never really goes away completely, and we'll be treating the fungi forever?
Out of bacteria, viruses and fungi I fear fungal pathogens more than anything else because this type of pathogen is so highly adaptable and more intelligent than the others. Yes I do alkalize and take borax and lugol's iodine every week. I made up my mind to go the preventative route some years ago and as a result I haven't had flu/colds or been ill for over 5 years now. I did have two bouts of food poisoning during this period -- but that was my own stupid fault !!
The more recent research has identified mycoplasma -- a fungal form of cell wall defficient bacteria -- which seems to be involved in many diseases these days -- from arthritis and pneumonia to cancer. And more evidence keeps turning up that so-called immune diseases seem to have bacteria and other pathogens associated with these conditions.
My own belief -- for what its worth -- is that not only do we have pleomorphism within a species -- we also must except all the evidence that pleomorphism between species also must exist. This is why medical science is so clueless on auto-immune diseases -- because they follow only the precepts of The Germ Theory which effectively states, without exception that there can only be One Disease --> One Germ --> One Cure.
I myself much prefer The Terrain or Cellular Theory of Antoine Bechamp, which fully accepts pleomorphism and also because it makes far more sense than the Germ Theory.
Did you read the label on your borax cleaner? Did it contain anything else such as chlorine or parabens?
Ordinary borax(sodium tetraborate) is very safe according to its Material Safety Data Sheet(MSDS) - borax is about as poisonous as ordinary table salt.
You could also use boron tablets from a health shop -- these will be expensive -- but these are given in tablet dosages of only 3 -- 6 mgs and you will need much more than that to kill the candida. In proper dosages, Borax also helps to balance the hormones, stops and reverses osteoporosis and arthritis and helps to remove fluoride safely from the body(fluoride is an acidifying root cause of candida). See this link on arthritis:
Hi, I am a 29 year old female who has tried a million different treatments and protocols to get rid of candida. My main symptoms are mild cramping and distention in my lower abdomen along with a white, dry, fluffy discharge from "down there." I am at the point of trying borax or maybe even turpentine. I am afraid of using borax because I have heard that it can cause reproductive damage and infertility. My main goal to cure the candida is to hopefully soon become pregnant and have a healthy child. Have you heard of this? How long do you think I would need to drink the borax?
What is the safe dose for Methylene Blue? I am up to (slow increase) 7 drops 3 times a day. After a dose I feel better for about an hour, give or take. I am also up to 4 drops of Lugol'sIodine once a day.
I also highly recommend Vitamin D3 to be taken with the Borax. Borax has the action of de-calcifying soft tissue. The Vitamin D3 will help the body to re-calcify the skeletal structure.
can someone email me I am twenty one years old i have severe systemic candida for the last two years. i have done everything diet you name it i have no support or help the hospital just thinks im crazy as does my doctor. i cant live another day like this and i am so scared
Thank you! I would like to add that boron is lost when you are exposed to aluminum. So, boron would be a particularly important remedy if you have been exposed to more than your share of aluminum. (vaccines, chemtrails, aluminum cookware, aluminum smelting.) I would guess that taking the boron would help your body release the aluminum. It seems logical, but I've no proof. I've read that malic acid and EDTA help get rid of aluminum.
Aluminum interferes with your alpha keto glutaric acid, which you need for energy production and for the conversion of B6 into its active form of Pyridoxal-5-phosphate (P5P). The yeast toxin acetaldehyde also lowers your alpha ketoglutaric acid.
In fact, there are a lot of things that the yeast toxin acetaldehyde interfere with. Replacing these nutrients should be beneficial for anyone who has had Yeast Overgrowth . (At least I found them beneficial.) Yeast depletes or interferes with these nutrients: NAD (a form of niacin), vitamin B1, taurine, alpha ketoglutaric acid, glutamine, P5P, coenzyme Q10, and methyl-folate. Very often yeast get rid of your malic acid, too.
I like the idea of the boron / borax. Here are some other ideas about how to deal with Candida.
Very informative! I just emailed you slowsmile to ask for your protocol before seeing it here.I plan to try it but am wondering if taking borax daily 4 days on and 3 days off for long periods of time with the methylene blue daily as well would cause the candida to become resistant to it?.This seems to be my issue with taking things. They work in the beginning but after a couple weeks my candida becomes resistant.I now know to alternate between antifulgals but am curious if candida will become resistant to borax and methylene blue?

You candida problem is not due to candida becoming "resistant". The reason your candida always comesback after a while is probably because you have had candida biofilms for years or decades and you aren't taking any direct protocols to remove these biofilms. Candida biofilms(where candida safely hides) are like impenetrable fortresses where anti-fugnals and the immune system cannot penetrate to kill the candida. So the candida always survives and keeps coming back no matter what you supplement. To get rid of the biofims for good take the turpentine remedy that I recommend in my protocol. Read this. You will also need to take iodine, borax, alkalize etc so that you also use multi-protocols to kill the candida when you remove these biofilms. Using multi-protocols will confuse tye candida and you will get much better results.
Take borax for four days on three days off if you wish. Borax is very efficient at killing both candida and parasites. Borax also kills mycoplasma and helps to get rid of fluoride from the body as well.
Slowsmile, Thank you for your reply. It took me forever to find out how to open my msg to my question. I still don't know if I'll be able to do it again. It isn't user friendly to get to my in box and see the specific reply to my question. Ok thank you again for sending me the amounts to take. My question is for milk thistle. I found some online for 4500 mg and you wrote 450 mg. Did you maybe make a mistake & meant 4500 mg?
Am trying to do 2 things at once here. Navigate to relevant thread about molybdenum and post comment relative to usage in a timely (recently) viewed manner. This thread is large so I have not got to read it entirely - in the process. I located something googled about sulfation pathway. It looked particulary relevant to my illness and Symptoms I was experiencing. Has to do with sufites , necessary but toxic in the body becoming harmless inorganic sulfates. Molybdenum is necessary for the process to occur. Initially when started it ran me over , felt like a 40 mph freight train hit me. I know , was an engineer ran into someone once, luckily he was wearing a backpack full school books wearing headphones , did not hear train horn walking down tracks! He survived , small miracles God may perform.
After that I stopped for a few days and set out trying again, little less aggressively. Still felt ooc -out of control. Now I am taking small dose. need clear the sufation pathway. Does anoyone have these Symptoms or tried the REMEDY , or found a Cause ? May have been reaction to the pink grapefruit remedy I was exposin using for fungal growths.
Slowsmile thank you so much for your post on Candida. What a tremendous amount of information. I have had Candida for years and have tried several times to get rid of it. I happened on your post last night because I bought borax recently and wanted to see how to use it to rid myself of systemic candida.
After reading your article though I realize that this will be much more difficult than I thought and I am going to try and take your advice of attacking it at all angles. I am scared though, I have had horrible die off at times in which I have vomited, bloating so badly I thought my stomach would explode and horrible headaches.
I need a slow approach can you recommend a slower approach for me?
Also I have issues with taking herbs. I have been treated for depression for 15 years. I have been on Effexor 6 of those years. When I use herbs it flushes out my liver too quickly and the medication doesn't work and I become extremely anxious and lethargic to the point of not being able to get out of bed.
I want off the Effexor so badly but the last time I tried which was a year and a half ago, the anxiety got so bad that I actually had a heart attack. (I am a 54 year old woman with a horrible family history of heart disease.) I am also about 30 pounds overweight and not so good lipid profile.
I refuse to take statins, I have tried 3 brands and all of them made me so mentally confused that I was literally missing work because I didn't know what day it was.
I really need help because I feel awful. I have one more question. I have had heavy metal blood testing and they returned normal. But you mentioned something in your article about prescription drugs causing us to have heavy metal poisoning. Did I read that correctly?

I have been plagued with jock itch for years, and have used ointments, creams, prescription drugs.... all to no avail. The only relief has been in applying collodial silver to the affected areas, but it has not yet cleared me of my symptoms. Does anyone have any suggestions? I have noticed that abstention from dairy products seems to help. I am willing to do most anything to ease the embarrasement of this condition. Thank you!
jock itch comes from inside and you need to fight the bacteria.
get ACIDOPHILUS TABLETS from a health food shop, they should be strong 25 billion good bacteria or more.
they are kept in the fridge and that is where you store them.
take 4 or 5 tablets a day and your rash should clear in 3-4 days.then take 2 a day for a few weeks.later you can take 1 every second day to keep the rash away.
You said to use acidophilus tablets. Do you have the name of the brand you used and does the 25 billion or more good bacteria have to be acidophilus only or can it be 25 billion or more total probiotic blend? And do you have to use the maintenace amount for life?
Yes it will go away. First of all you need to understand that jock itch isn't an external condition. It's an internal condition. It's systemic. You have a toxic overload and the wastes and toxins are trying to come out through your skin. Clean up your diet. Do the liver cleanse and other cleanses you read about on Curezone. Your jock itch will be history.
First of ALL, always wash your whole body with a wash cloth. Little comes off with soap and the naked hand especially on the face, ears, underarms, back and privates. I am a female but I have suggested the use of Vagisil Cream to two males with nasty itch, redness and irritation and they claim it worked liked a charm. A couple of days use and has never been back. 6 years ago on one and two years ago on the other. Although I would strongly recommend natural remedy above all else, it is just as painful to watch a man constantly itch and readjust himself as it is to actually be doing the itching and readjusting.
I had jock itch for a very long time. I used
Every over the counter cream spray that was offered
I did not find success.
I have now found it that's why I am here
To finally come full circle to share this
Information with you.
How did I cure this nasty jock itch and began
Enjoying my life?
I was like everyone else surfing the web. Googling
Hundreds of house on the internet. Meanwhile itching
With embarrassment all the time.
I found a post that informed me of Yeast Overgrowth
In the body. The post led me to understanding that Yeast Overgrowth is from Sugar feeding bad bacteria in
The stomach. This leads to jock itch and other
Skin problems. I learned of kefir grains and how important
For us all to be drinking homemade kefir. This was the turning
I made the kefir which is good live bacteria
Subsequently I drank the kefir and applied some topically
To the jock itch. A miracle occurred the jock itch was
Gone after one week. It felt like overnight.
Kefir grains are basically free or a few dollars
And all a person really needs are the grains milk
And a container. God bless the simple yet complex
Things in life! I have kefir grains and store and use them to this
Days with many health benefits.
Jock itch and other vegetable parasites/fungi can be indicative of a system wide Candida Infection . One sure fire way to get rid of it is to use Nutiva organic virgin coconut oil. Take 4-6 tablespoons a day either by cooking with it or just eating it (it tastes incredible!). Then, each night apply a thin layer to the affected area. Put on a pair of boxers to keep the oil from rubbing off. Then, wash in the shower with ONLY DR Bronners soaps. They are organic and truly natural and will not strip the protective acid mantle from the skin. While still damp from the shower, massage a thin layer of coconut oil into the affected area and even over your entire body if you want. You will be amazed at the results.
Why coconut oil? This wonderful oil is made up of medium chain fatty acids (MCFAs) that have remarkable healing qualitites, especially when used topically. These MCFAs, when broken down either by stomach acids, salivary enzymes or beneficial bacteria on the skin, are converted to free fatty acids that destroy harmful bacteria, parasites, fungi and even viruses. Any pathogen with a lipid coated cell wall has no chance against coconut oil. They simple dissolve and die as soon as they contact the free fatty acids.
Why Nutiva? It's the purest and best I've found. Spectrum is another good one as well as tropical treat? Can't remember the name exactly. Just get virgin, organic UNREFINED coconut oil. You may also want to consider using a good probiotic like Jarro-Dophilus to strengthen your immune system and kick out the Candida Infection .
Try that and keep us posted!
Thanksfor this post. I suffered from an extreme case of jock itch, covering my entire scrotum and base of pemis. For months I used every cream they sold in stores for jock itch. When that wouldn't work I visited an urgent care who gave me a clomitrazole cream and 1 Diflucan pill. Still nothing. Next went to another doctor and explained everything and guess what he gave me? ClomitrZole cream, which I had already explained didn't work! So I did research because at this point I had been trying to get rid of this for about 5 months. When I found this post and others similar to it( I was very skeptical) I decided to give it a try. So I started applying virgin coconut oil, which I mixed with a little bit of tea tree oil. I bought dr. Bronners soap, and only used it to wash with. Then I would swallow around 5 tbsp daily of the coconut oil. I also bought acidophilus tablets, taking 4-6 a day. I also bought pills that were garlic extract/oregano extract, as I read these would help kill the overgrown candida in the body. I still used some ClomitrZole cream, alternating between it and the coconut/tea tree oil mixture. Within 24 hours my condition noticeably improved. I continued this and my condition basically completely cleared up in a matter of days. Additionally I believe I cleared up the problem of systemic Candida Overgrowth I wasn't even aware I had. I now have much more energy, less craving for sugar, stomach discomfort went away, and just feel much better overall. I owe all of this to research and posts from here! I never gave much credit to all-natural or homeopathic remedies before, but after this myopinions are changing. Thank u
You certainly have Candida and if you are looking for a wonderful cream to help,then you should try Forever Living Aloe/Propolis creme. The products are wonderful from health and nutrition to personal care. If you would like to purchase the products at wholesale price then check me out in the market forum, under the heading Aloe Vera.
Jock itch rash is caused by lead in the Lymph system of the body. L- methionine, an amino acid will chelate it from the body and alleviate the rash. You need 2,000 mgs. Methionine
a day for 3 weeks, then 1,000 for 3 weeks and finally 500 for
2 weeks then you are finished and do not need anymore.
Not all brands are potent, therefore I'll mention a few I know are, Twin Labs, Solgar, & Country Life. I have no affiliation with these companies.
Alright, my story is long, I'll tell you first what works for me, in case you don't want to or don't have the time to read the whole thing. Then I'll list what I tried and what didn't work.
What works for me: COCONUT OIL APPLIED TOPICALLY (I use Organic Extra-Virgin , I'll tell you which brand if you want but it probably doesn't matter). I had a terrible case of jock itch for about three years, thinking it was herpes the whole time. Its a long story as to why I thought it was herpes so I'll skip it, but it might explain the other things I tried...all of which didn't work for any decent amount of time.
Basically: I had to apply the coconut oil multiple times daily (whenever I started itching again) in the beginning, because my case was so bad. The jock itch finally went away, but comes back in a mild form every so often...so I just apply more coconut oil whenever that happens. THIS IS THE ONLY THING THAT HAS EVER WORKED FOR ME! Even the over the counter creams and sprays never did the trick, which is simply bizarre, in my opinion.
What I tried before finding coconut oil:
1) I would wake up every night itching like crazy, so I'd go to the bathroom and put some rubbing alcohol on some toilet paper and apply that, which would make the itching go away for the most or all of the night...IT OBVIOUSLY BURNS LIKE HELL, so I wouldn't recommend it!
2) Raw Garlic...orally; topically (olive oil and crushed garlic); and finally, cut up slices of raw garlic, placing the slices where it itched.
3) Liver Flushes/Cleansing/Vegetarianism (2.5 years vegetarian)/going Vegan, etc.
4) Valtrex (hahaha...I couldn't understand why my "herpes" wouldn't go away even with massive daily doses of 1000mg for months) - This obviously was useless and I would have never done it if my doctor had taken a closer look at my problem.
5) DSM and Hydrogen Peroxide (Topically): this was when I still thought it was herpes . Some people in the herpes forums and internet sites said this would work, but it did little, since this wasn't herpes!
6) Ozone therapy; Autohemotherapy (in Spain, which is where I found out that it was a micotic infection, not herpes.) I only had three sessions, and they were so expensive that I had to stop them (and they weren't working)...these were the doctors that actually told me it appeared to be jock itch.
7) OTC creams and sprays for jock itch: These worked for a little while, but they're nasty substances and didn't make the jock itch go away even after weeks of multiple daily applications.
8) Liquid dish soap, applied topically. (I read about that on curezone,
Okay, I probably tried more than what I listed, but this is all I can remember for now. Basically, COCONUT OIL applied topically is the only thing that has worked for me. If you can't find anything that works, DEFINITELY give coconut oil a try. Be persistant, applying more whenever you itch. Taking it orally doesn't hurt either, but orally alone didn't do the trick for me.
Shoot me an email if you'd like; I'd be happy to answer any questions that anyone might have! Feel free to pass this info along, as I didn't look for the "perfect" place to post this info...I just felt it was finally time I gave back to the curezone community.
It's bizarre to me too! If something as simple as coconut oil works, you would think they could make a cream that incorporatesthat or at least actually worked. I tried every cream they sell, combinations of creams, prescription creams (which were the same ingredients as otc creams anyway), and nothing worked. Once I added coconut oil to my list of remedies it immediately had an effect!
Hi all. It looks like a while since anyone has posted, but worth a try. I was wondering what type of coconut oil or what brand works best? Also how much to apply, rub it in or just spread it?
I have a similar issue and i too thought it might be herpes, but now i'm wondering. Machado, if you have the time, can you please tell me why you mistook it for herpes?
I have had a similar itching around the base of my penis for over 2 years now and have tried everything from anti fungals to anti yeast products. I seem to itch as i start to warm up but not when i sweat around the base of my penis, right left and just above.
I seem to get hours of relief when i shower or have a workout. The itching is always in the same area.
It might be some sort of deep (internal)fungus issue. You probably need to address it internally,topically and externally (clothing).
Neem soap and oregano oil is really good for fungal infections. Since it's in such a sensitive area, I'd get some neem soap (online, health food store or indian market) and use a grater to shave some in a small jar and add hot water to liquify and add a few drops of strong oregano oil. Wash the area with it, let the lather stay on as long as comfortable, if it stings a lot, that's the oregano oil. After shower, you can add the oregano oil topically diluted in some carrier oil. I'd do this twice a day.
Wash all your unmentionables in hot, hot water. If everything is white, add bleach in the wash. Wash again a second time with white vinegar, it'll neutralize the bleach.
You should probably wash your pj's and sheets the same way too. If you can't use bleach, use the hot water and vinegar wash too. You can also wash with hydrogen peroxide. I've never tried that, but I've used it several times to steam clean my carpet and it doesn't "bleach" it. It's great for carpets in removing pet stains and cleaning without a soap residue. The woman who told me about hydrogen peroxide for cleaning the carpet also uses it in the wash. Get some big bottles from the drug store.
Take internally some anti-fungal, anti-parasitic herbs/kits like paragone and candidagone. You may need to do it for a few months. Add to that, neem capsules. They can be taken internally. Neem is antifungal, antiviral and antibacterial.
Thanks for the tips. I will certainly try what you have suggested as I have pretty much tried everything pharmaceutical. I live in London, England and even bought some extra strong butenafine hydrochloride imported from America, a new ingredient in Lotormin Ultra I believe. Just doesn't help and at times makes it worse. The only thing that has helped is putting miconazole body powder down there, altough this gives me long relief, the itch really wins at the end of the day. This is definitely something fungal right?
This is such an irritating thing I have and it is really starting to affect the quality of my life. I find myself getting very irritable and snappy as I am constantly feeling the burn, itching, tingling sensation down there. I have noticed that it really kicks in when I am sitting down for long periods at work, by about 2 - 3pm, like clock-work, I get this burning prickly sensation above my penis in my pubic hair that becomes so uncomfortable that I have to get up and walk around.
If this is fungal, why would I feel a lot better after exercise, also why would I get the sensation only as I warm up and not when I am sweaty down there? I am due to get married soon, arranged type of marriage and I am petrified that I am going to pass something on to her. The doctors keep sending me a way with creams that cost me more and more money, but to no avail. I have also been prescribed Fluconazole tablets, but yet this mysterious problem persists. I am constantly trawling the internet looking for similar problems, but the forums always seem to end with no result. I have even tried changing my eating habits and probiotics.
If anyone else is male and has a similar issue, please get in touch.
I'm only guessing, but it sounds fungal. Get some LugolsIodine and and start on both. Can't hurt and might help. If it is fungal, you'll notice an improvement with the neem soap and oregano oil. That's what finally cleared up ringworm on my daughter's shoulder blade. We tried everything, but nothing worked until we used the neem and oregano oil. You might be re-infecting yourself, which is why I suggested washing everything in hot water with bleach.
Funny it doesn't itch when you're sweaty. I would think you would be.
Hope what I've suggested helps!!
PS. I totally feel for you! I've had more than a few Yeast Infection s so I can totally appreciate the torturous agony of burning and itching "down there".
Humaworm sells anti-candida herbs as well as anti-parasitic herbs. I dunno if you'll have a problem getting in UK or not, but you could try cross-posting on the humaworm site.
But in the meantime, give the neem soap (it also comes in an oil you can try topically, but I have to warn you, it smells vile!) and oregano oil a shot. It worked quickly on my daughter and cleared the rash up in about a week after suffering through it for a couple of months using otc creams and gentian violet. I'm a believer in the power of neem and oregano oil for fungal stuff.
I did a lot of research on the subject of jock itch, ringworm and athlete's foot. My daughter had athlete's foot, which she gave her brother, he had ringworm on his back, and then on his groin, which is what is the famous jock itch.
These different problems are actually manifestations of one single agent: the tinea fungus. You can try pharmaceutical products, like Tinactin, and spend a lot of money. Or, understanding all of this is one and only one skin fungus, you can cure it for no money at all, quick and easy. The best cure: vinegar. I did use apple cider vinegar, 'cause I like natural stuff, in the hope of nurturing good flora on the skin, but cheap white vinegar, called "boot vinegar" in our snowy northern area, (as one of its main uses is removing calcium stains from winter boots), will just work as well.
Tinea is just a skin parasite, like any other, and it doesn't depend on your level of, say, health or personal correctness, if you catch it or not. You can get it from contact with infected people, or walking barefoot at the pool, for example, as the fungus will survive for a while in humid areas. Cats and dogs can be carriers too. There is a lot of cross-contamination between people and their animals.
Vinegar is very acidic, and this fungus cannot live in an acidic medium. To cure the problem forever, just use a cotton pad or ball soaked in vinegar. Just apply a little vinegar on the lesions, at least once a day, and let it dry without rinsing. You can do it morning and night, it's going to heal quicker. Use a new piece of cotton each time, of course. On my 6-7 years old son's groin, he couldn't do it himself, so I used a spray bottle, to not touch him in that area. He was pretty sensitive, his skin was probably creviced, so I cut the vinegar half and half with water to ease the sting.
Do that everyday, and it will disappear from your life, within 10 days to 3 weeks. Garanteed.
Of course, we change all our clothes everyday. I was careful to use a disinfecting agent in the socks and underwear washes (just regular chlorine or oxygen bleach).
I also discovered that heels that crack till bleeding, that no amount of lotion will soften, are also often infected by the tinea fungus. I sprayed my feet all over with vinegar and let it dry. It worked! That painful problem had plagued me for long, and and I can now say I have been free from it since more than 2 years.
Here are 2 more products you can use to help you get rid of that fungus: Tea Tree oil (Melaleuca Australiensis), and Neem oil. Just apply one or the other to the affected areas after the vinegar treatment. Tea Tree oil is well known. Neem oil is from India, a very powerful antifungal and anti-parasite. You can find it in many Indian grocery stores, or on the Web. A 3-4 oz bottle is 5-6$ max. Don't get ripped! ;-)
I have a friend who has had fungus in his toenails for years. He got a shallow covered dish to keep the vinegar in, filled it with apple cider vinegar, soaked his whole feet in it for 20 minutes every night, let them dry without rinsing off the vinegar, etc. I thought it would take 2-3 months for him to see an improvement, as the fungus attacks the nailbed, and nails need a couple of months to grow back. Well, after only a few days, he told me he was already feeling much better: the fungus had been causing inflammation in his toes so they were swelling up, and that was already receding. I told him to massage his toenails with Neem oil after each treatment, making it penetrate in every little corner and crevice, trying to get it under the nail and to the nail bed, that this would amplify the effects of the treatment. I hope he gets himself some Neem oil, but he already sees a vast improvement with just vinegar.
I have another friend who is a podiatrist. She knows about these traditional uses of vinegar. She couldn't use it when she was working with doctors at a medical clinic, but now that she has her own clinic, she does use it instead of other medications in cases of nail fungus.
About domestic animals: if there is jock itch, ringworm, or athlete's foot in your home, you also have to treat ringworm lesions on cats or dogs. People often are infected by their animals, and the opposite is also true. For small lesions, just wet the affected area with vinegar, massage it into the hair down to the skin, and let it dry. Try to repeat regularly and soon everything will be gone. If your animal has more than one lesion, it would be advisable to treat him all over. One cure often used by cat breeders is lime sulfur. The animal or the botanical variety work just as well, but the botanical variety is less expensive. (Is this a case of inflation due to the name tag?) The animal variety is easily found on the Internet or at farm supply stores. The botanical variety is found at every hardware store or garden center. For all that matters, sulfur is a known fungicide. To use it, you just spray the animal all over with a dilution of the stuff and rub it in the hair down to the skin, not forgetting the belly, around the ears and face, the rear end, and between toenails. (Very important: animals scratch itchy areas, so toenails can be infected, and the area between the toes too). Dilution should be between 1:16 to 1:32 with water. Again, let dry without rinsing. I think it is easier than wetting a whole cat or dog with vinegar! Most of all, with vinegar, you would absolutely need to avoid the eye and nose areas, as well as the ears and other orifices, as it would be highly irritant. Lime sulfur is much less irritant. Some cat breeders just make a bath of lime sulfur in which they dip the animal; however, in my opinion, it is easier to spray and rub than dip and rub, as you need to get the product down to the skin. And you need less of it.
Last but not least, vinegar will rid you of warts, much better than expensive medications or painful nitrogen burning. Just soak a piece of cotton in vinegar, put it on the wart for at least 20 minutes, let dry without rinsing. Do that every day and Missy Wart will soon be gone. My daughter had a wart under her big toe. No medication from the drug store worked. We had it burned many times with nitrogen at a medical clinic. The next week, the nurse would scrape it with a scalpel. It was painful, we had to wait a lot, and the wart kept on growing back inwards, the thick skin under the toe covering and enclosing it. After so many complaints from my daughter, I researched alternative wart cures, and this was actually our first encounter with the healing properties of apple cider vinegar. I just soaked a cotton pad in apple cider vinegar, put it on the wart area, covered it in plastic film, secured everything with scotch tape so the whole thing wouldn't slip off her toe, put a sock on that foot and left it like that for the night. Repeated the treatment for 10 days, after which no more wart, no more pain. What a relief, after months and months of hassle and unsuccessful, painful, expensive treatments.
Since then, we saw warts cured on many people thanks to this simple recipe.
So simple and easy: I guess the wart virus, just like the tinea fungus, doesn't like acidic mediums. It's logical, too: vinegar has been used for many centuries to preserve food, precisely because most life forms cannot survive in such an acidic medium. Soaking a fungal lesion or a wart in vinegar, we are actually pickling it, killing the microorganisms generating it. That's the beauty of this long proven, simple, traditional folk medicine recipe.
Please let me know if you try it, I'd be really glad to get your feedback.
Good luck to you! :-)
Anyone looking to these cures should definitely look up their side effects e.g. by searching for Neem side effects WebMD. For example Neem may cause fertility problems in men, Lavendar oil might cause breast growth in boys, Tea tree oil may cause muscle tremors (and this is when using these products topically ie on the skin). Also bear in mind that the skin is not an impervious barrier and topically applied products can go straight into the blood stream, where they are MORE toxic than orally ingested products (because they don't get broken down by the digestive system). Look up 'Oil enter skin' and 'skin absorption'.
Also, Vagicil's only active ingredients are topical pain killers (search for 'Vagicil ingredients)
Update: what's working for me is Coconut oil - get one of the organic ones, Tesco sells one I think. It's like a white butter that melts in the hand. The effects last for a few hours. As soon as it starts itching again put more on. Half an hour after putting some on you'll get itching as it starts to work, then it dies away, then when it stops working the itching starts again. I keep a small jar beside the bed so that I can put a bit on if I wake up. One jar lasts for ages. I also ended up with a little bit of the same rash on my back where I sweat a lot when exercising.
Winter - two duvets and underwear, it's easy for the genitals to get very hot and the itching starts again pretty quickly. My solution was to ditch the underwear just to keep the temperature down.
I also tried vinegar - peeled off a layer of skin after going all scabby, no long-term benefits. Lemon juice - again, a scabby layer of skin that peeled off but actually made it worse, my theory being that the lemon juice contained sugars that the fungus thrived on. Milk of Magnesia - did nothing. Garlic - very painful, skin peeled off, no long-term benefits. Tea-tree oil - same as garlic, skin peeled, no benefits but there are dangerous possible side effects including hormonal dysfunction and poor coordination. Over the counter Daktarin containing miconazole (any ingredient ending in 'Azole' is likely to combat the two main types of fungus causing the problem) - very very slowly cleared it up but I wasn't keen on the chemicals in it getting through the thin skin of my scrotum and it was getting pretty expensive.
I can highly recommend this website. It's by Linda Allen a Certified Nutrition Specialist and Health Consultant.
There is an excellent ebook available, which has some interesting ideas on fighting Yeast Infection s, such as Jock Itch.
I had it too for quite some time. I tried a lot of different powders, sprays, pills that helped until I stopped taking them and it kept coming back. I travel a lot and I am in and out of hotel showers and it's easy to pick up athlete's foot. Same fungus. Had mildew smell to towels and clothing and my research said that the fungus can survive washings. I had bought a new front load washer. Drained the water left over after washing after about 4 months of not doing it and the smell was awful and water black. Decided that maybe the fungus WAS surviving washes and decided to try and locate something to kill the fungus in the laundry and the washer. Found a product called Odoban. Comes in three scents. Lavender, citrus and eucalyptus. You can buy at Sam's club (eucalyptus) and Home Depot (citrus and lavender) I recommend the lavender but have not tried citrus. We washed everything (started with all of my underwear) as usual then added Odoban to the clothing during the rinse cycle. You must use it every load but the jock itch went away, the laundry smells clean again and I am very happy. Drained the washer several times since then and it smells like Odoban. No more disgusting smell. Many people complain about the odor from front loading washers. THIS FIXES IT. If you want to be rid of the problem once and for all, THIS IS HOW TO DO IT UNLESS YOU HAVE AN UNDERLYING MEDICAL ISSUE. THIS IS THE ONLY THING THAT WORKED. I know how frustrated you are. I was there. I only signed up to post this and help someone because I know how hard I worked to figure it out.
I get a bad case every 2-3 years in summer.
Wash with Dr Bronners teatree oil soap... blow dry... lots of powder to keep dry day & night... no underwear.
I tried every OTC product... none worked.
One year dermatologist prescribed Econazole... worked in 1-2 weeks... so next time i bought on ebay from china for $11... worked again
Here's the two biggest errors people do that allow candida growth:
1) Use soaps that specifically aren't "PH balanced" or acidic, so that they are alkaline which robs your skin of its natural acidity for 4 hours. And some people bath twice a day.
2) Due to typical errors from the false medical profession people avoid putting salt on their food. Salt is highly anti-fungal and antibacterial. If you sweat and the sweat has little salt then that's little protection against fungus and bacteria that would grow there.
I am a male that fought jock it for over ten years. I went to th
Doctor early on when I realized I couldn't get rid of
It I with hydrocortisone and anti fungal creams ands
Sprays. I spent thousands and countless trips to
The drug store over the years. Anyways a combination
Of two items cured it completely. Homemade kefir applied topically
To the problem. The other tool was antibacterial hand purell applied
Which burned but seemed to turn off the infection for a day.
I am excited to tell you to research kefir, probiotics and
Controlling yeast in the body.
Drink it regularly Homemade. And apply topically to scarred area
I believe it was a gift from heaven. Not only did it cure
Me I no longer have other skin problems such as itching
I don't ever have stool problems either
If you find this as your cure too let me know
Google kefir grains to find out this miracle microorganism
That kills jock itch asap.
It's gone! Enjoy your life and new knowledge
Email me if it worked.
While I have no clear cure, a suggestion is order. After years of anti fungal creams and medications a Doctor finally got a skin scrape test. Yes I don't have a fungal infection, get a check on the actual skin. If it is not fungal not sure but could be candida or something similar.Seeing a publicly funded specialist, unfortunately a immunologist and not a dermatologist. Good luck, didn't know so many were suffering from this horrible affliction.
I too have had jock itch for years. I'm 41 now and first got it at 19. It never responded well to prescription creams, over the counter sprays, or at home treatment. I gave up on it and just lived with it until it started going away this past year. About a year ago I started taking Vitamin D3 to successfully treat LPR (its a type of reflux). Interestingly once my D levels went above deficient the jock itch has gone into remission. I always avoided getting out into the sun since it would cause me to sweat and make the jock itch that much worse, but it turns out the Vitamin D that your skin makes from sun exposure helps your immune system and more. Research it a bit and talk to your doctors about it.
I have been plagued with the same thing, and tried 2 different kinds of Lotrimin to no avail. I came here, and found several of the cures and tried them: Coconut Oil, both internally, and externally, Dr. Bronner's soap, Acidophilus tablets, and L-Methionine amino acids, and vagisil cream...
All seem to be a waste of time... I went to a doctor, and he simply said that this is very common problem, and if you don't have big sores, most likely is either a Yeast Infection , or a bacterial infection that has gotten into the hair follicles. Scratching only makes it worse.
I was prescribed 2 different pills, and a cream to apply.....
Knocks it out fast ! Just see a doctor, they will save you a lot of grief and time with all of these trial and error fixes....
After sunburn gel
Resolve .05 anti fungal cream
Burn aid gel
Tea tree anteseptic
First aid spray
Nair hair removal cream
Inner health plus tablets
I found an inexpensive solution for jock itch. Witch Hazel with 40% alcohol. Found it at Walmart. Apply as much as you can stand and as often as you can stand. Will burn for a while until skin heals. I've tried all sorts of creams and powder sprays, but this very cheap solution has worked best for me.
Does anyone else who has been diagnosed with Psoriasis have the kind that basically disappears in the winter months and comes back in spring and summer? I was diagnosed with Psoriasis about 15 years ago and this is how my Psoriasis has been during that time. My doctor cannot tell me why it does this, but says it is unusual........just trying to find out if there is anyone else out there with this type.
HI..there is no such thing as seasonal psoarsis. It's genetic. But the seasons can trigger a response. Mine gets really terrible in the winter due to the dryness in the air(in and out of bldgs and home). I need to mosturize more during the winter months. In the summer I clear up great. The UV rays from the sun help me a lot and clear me up almost 50%. My body is about 90% covered and has been since birth. I have sporatic clearing up episodes tho. There is so much out there now since I was born, keep researching. I do. and I've had it for 58 out of 58 years of age. Good luck
Hey ladyfthread just responding to your message. Yeah I have had psorasis for 13 years and mine has never cleared up once. It looks the same everyday but everytime summer gets here it seems to get worse. I am like you its always bad but winter is better than summer. I hate that because it is confusing. I don't get in the sun alot though and it stays mostly warm here I live in the south but I think its the humidity that is causes mine to be worse in the summer. It is very humid here. I have read one other post with the same question But most are the opposite. This is a confusing disease. I would like to talk to the ones who have the same problem as us and find out what has worked for them because some things work for others while still others say they had no improvements! well keep me posted if you find out anymore info too.
Finally someone who has their psoriasis get worse in the summer months....my doctor even told me that she had never heard of that. About the humidity, mine does get worse then. I have had it for approx 10 yrs. Tried everything - used Dovonex (made it much worse); tried steriod creams which worked, but when it came back it was much worse than before. I am currently trying to take care of it myself. A girl told me that she had psoriasis, but had cured it by taking large doses of Biotin (which is found in the vitamin section of Wal-Mart). I just started taking it about 2 weeks ago and so far it seems to be showing a small improvement. I am taking 5000mg a day. I will let you know as I progress if it continues to improve. I personally can't wait for winter since it is much easier to hide it under clothing.
It's very unusual that your psoriasis gets better during the winter months. For most sufferers it's the opposite. Warmth, humidity and sun make the condition better and the cold, drying heat from furnaces and lack of sun make the condition worse in the winter. That's what happens to me anyway.
Yes, my psoriasis clears completely in the Winter, first sign of Spring it begins again, like clock work. When I'm sun bathing, I see new breakouts, the more I lay out the worst it gets. I've had psoriasis for 40 years, my sibling has it as well the sun makes it better. You hear so many different things that could be causing it, I guess we'll never really know.
I don't lay out but the minute the weather warms up, my skin starts acting up. Hives, redness and then burns and then boom! Like an explosion of discomfort and itchiness and scars and ugh...
The winter, a nice COLD winter is all I want all year round.
I thought I was the only one out there with this issue of having to be in the coldest grayest weather around in order for my skin to heal.
I'm contemplating Alaska having my last outbreak after the heatwave in California. I feel scarred for life from the top of my bald head (had to shave my head and yes I'm female) to my feet...
Doctor told me to avoid all sun back in 2001 and I did for 10 years in Oregon... went into total remission so I came home to California - homesick. And now after 4 years I don't even look the same. My skin is pitch black on parts of my face and body in spots. I am black and so some just think it's hyerpigmentation and natural... no...it's not. I was a mocha color and now, I'm blothy and ugly with all these very dark areas all over my face and body. So this makes me look like someone other than myself.
I'm depressed and leaving California - I won't be back... and it makes me sad...
Yep... probably NORTH to Alaska.
I have recently been diagnosed with Psoraisis, and it only flares in summer and gets better in winter, my Dr. 2 says its unusual. I have been on methotraxate, Humira, Cyclsporine and now stelara. I am praying for a break. The nails are the worse for me, when i have a flare up, it is everywhere, red and raw. Nothing helps, but Dr. and I keep trying new stuff.
I will be doing a long term water fast. I don't want to put a date on fast but going for at least 40 days but I will break fast when hungry or tongue clears.
I have fasted long term before with great results hoping this time will show the same.
Skin is a big issue right now along with psoriatic arthritis wanting to get off immune suppressant since insurance will not be covering meds next year
Having some major issues the last two months with gastroparesis after having an h-pylori infection last year and a stomach virus this year.
Hoping to rest my stomach and get a handle on immune that is attacking body
Good idea that you want to fast. Please make sure that I you have good nutritive reserves before you commence your fast. In order to tondo that eat raw organic plant based foods for a month. Also include apple cider vinegar regularly in your diet to tackle H-pylori. Also Colloidal Silver
Drugs are never an answer for fixing our health conditions, anyway. Our health issues start with wrong foods and end with right foods. Of course, there are other issues that affect our health, environmental and thought toxicity.
Think you might be right about the gluten sensitivity, I went gluten free for about 6 months a few years back and felt better but after doctor told me after a sample was taken from stomach during a procedure that I did not have celiac that I went back to eating gluten but still I wondered I will not do gluten just in case want my stomach to heal and stay healed
I think my immune system is much better after a fast from experience I say this but I do believe when your body is not so sick your immune system just gets better on its own. I have not heard of this product you mentioned but will look into it further thank you for the advice
Please help me figure out what’s wrong with me it would me the world to me. Im 28 year old guy who has had Psoriasis for 10 years. I have psoriasis below the belt, elbows, hands, back of legs, feet, few on my face, head/scalp sometimes. Ears. Mustache.
- Psoriasis/itchy skin when eat 99% of food, if I don’t eat/fast/or eat only vegetable the psoriasis slowly goes away. Which tells me when my body is digesting my psoriasis acts up/itches/flares. Especially with fatty foods and meats. Maybe because there is no fat in vegetables they are easier for body to digest.
- extreme food allergies (and extremely allergic to fats eg in meats) makes me itch
- extreme brain fog 24/7
- difficulty sleeping
- chronic fatigue
- heat in body/inflammation
- nail pitting (fingers and toes)
- dandruff and hair loss a (symptom of candida)
- dehydrated (dry mouth), drinking 8 cups of water a day doesn’t
I have seen 2 naturopaths in the past and took a food allergy test. I eliminated all the foods I was allergic to, I did 2 Liver Flushes on my own and removed stones and it went away for 6 months many years ago; back then I had few food allergies they were eggs, milk and dairy products, gluten/wheat and beef. My psoriasis came back after 6 months and it started getting worse and worse and so did my food allergies. Now I am extremely intolerant to 99 % of foods. If I eat anything else other than vegetables I get psoriasis outbreaks. All I am eating nowadays is sweet potatoes, chicken, brocholli, salad and kale, and apples. Nothing outside of that. Even the chicken im eating is bothering me but if I don’t eat meat I feel very famished, lose so much weight, and cant enjoy my hobby of going to the gym. None of these foods are shown to be bad for me on my food allergy tests. But contradictory to the tests the chicken and other foods that the tests says is safe still bother me some more than others. I never drank adequate amounts of water my entire life, was lucky if I even drank a cup a day. In the past took Accutane acne medicine which is extremely dehydrating and screws around with immune system (I got psoriasis a few years after taking Accutane). I also was a heavy smoker. I used recreational drugs such as heavy marijuana use, and hash mostly. I stopped everything. All 3 combined could have resulted in dehydrating my body
2 months ago I did I also did a bacterial overgrowth of the small intestine test (breath test). Results showed that I may have SIBO (a mild bacterial overgrowth in the small intestine). I took coptis, candacin and coconut oil and I went away 80% ONLY below the belt. I stopped using it after one month and it came back. Ive been doing Liver Flushes once a week have been removing stones, im up to my 8th flush but see no improvements in my symptoms. What should I do? What is causing my problems?
- Is it a candida/Parasite problem? Fungus? Yeast Overgrowth ? H-pylori that has caused a leaky gut?
- Is a congestion problem (gallbladder/liver) that needs to be cleansed?
- Is it a bile problem? Bile Deficiency? or thickness of bile?
Just so you know Hulda Clark has said you should wait 2 weeks between liver flushes.
Based on what you say your baceria is unbalanced. That would suggest a strong probiotic may be useful.
Custom probiotics has one that is 60 billion critters, and you can take it 3 times a day. It comes in capsule form. the name is CP1, or they have others that have more strains . http://www.customprobiotics.com/
You also mention Gluten/wheat. Gluten can be a big problem for some people. IT can be in a lot of foods, or foods that are processed in the same facility.
thanks for your reply, im aware that im supposed to wait 2 weeks in between flushes but i prefer to do it once a week to fastrack.
I have been taking a probiotic in the past for months but I saw no improvements. The product i used that my naturopath recommended was Genestra HMF Forte (Provides 20 billion CFU per daily dose). Im very careful of what I eat, im aware wheat is in many things people are not aware of even black pepper. I do not eat anything that my food intolerance test says i should stay away from (eg wheat/gluten, dairy, eggs, beef ect)but I still have allergic psorisis breakouts pretty much every time I eat foods outside of vegitables.
Sounds like you pretty much have things covered. Except the probiotic for the daily dose is 1/3 of one capsul of what I mentioned, and I take 3 a day. I guess you probably shouldn't go against the Dr's Rec, unless you ask again.
I didn't have an idea about the brain fog, and it just occured to me that If you haven't already maybe you should check out Dave Asprey who supposedly a Biohacker. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ffpxYQyJlUwHe has many videos.
I think you should do a series of liver flushes. It won't cure your problem completely on its own but it will help alot. You need to cut out all known food allergens which are the worst. For me, one egg will give me a psoriasis flare.. so allergens are definitely the issue. Take vitamins and minerals that are known to help the body cope with allergenic response, for example vitamin b5. Cutting out all allergens and taking b5 might help. Also taking a supplement for your liver will help, Milk Thistle 6000 per day at least.
I have a feeling that your gut have been seriously damaged by some antibiotics you may have taken more than once in your life ... and that means it is going to take some time to fix it all...
One thing that may help is regular physical exercises, especially abdominal exercises, to strengthen your abdomen, and to strengthen your core muscles ... as those muscles can influence digestion, and help you improve your digestion.
Regular physical exercises also helps reduce stress ... and stress is a huge factor in psoriasis and digestive disorders ...
So, if you are not doing it already ... start exercising daily, at least one hour every day...
It is also possible that you are allergic to something you are not aware of, something you are exposed to daily, like toothpaste, cosmetics, nickel, flame retardants in your home, wall paints, furnitures, carpets, a cat or a dog dander, birds, water, pesticides used inside your home to kill roaches, ants or other bugs, pesticides use outside your home as weedkillers, cookware you are using (nickel, teflon, iron, copper etc), black mold inside your home , etc.
You already know a lot about your own diet and your own food tolerance.
It is possible you have serious problem tolerating chemicals in your environment ... and that intolerance may affect your digestion, and your food tolerance.
Some people are vegan by choice .. others because that is only way to be healthy.
Listen to your body when it is talking to you!
I was "almost vegan" for more than 10 years, as I was able to consume fish, but not meat, no eggs or milk.
After several years of liver flushing ... it all changed. Now I can eat anything, but I choose to consume home made food exclusively, and I choose quality over quantity!
thanks for the reply, Im a bodybuilder i workout 4 times a week for 1hr-1.5 hour each day. at the moment i dont do cardio but im going to start running on my off days for 15 mins 3 times a week. i considered it could be my environment but ive also lived at a friends house in another part of the country for 6 months and nothing improved. I think i have leaky gut caused by either small intestinal bacteria OR candida. i tested positive for sibo, but havent tested for candida.
I want to continue doing Liver Flushes and try to cure the sibo, whats the best way of killing the sibo? i was thinking coconut oil, woodworm, cloves, and oil of oregano combination? what do you guys think?
Lots of people have the same problem. They were facing the symptoms of Psoriasis for many years. But the resaerch is not completed still. So many researchers waiting to get the solution for Psoriasis. Hope they will discover it soon for making you free from Psoriasis. Most of the MBBS colleges started their research about the symptoms of Psoriasis and will get the solution soon.
For a while now I have had symptoms of fatigue, hair loss, depression, scalp psorasis, slow digestion, fibrocystic breasts, and felling stressed/overwhelmed, very slow weight loss. I finally went to get tests done and just got the results back. The doctor said the only thing she thought was an issue was my vitamin d levels..they were 27 ng/ml. However, at this point about 2 months prior I had started taking 2,000 IU of vitamin d daily..so this number could have been much lower prior to that. Also my TSH was 3.29, free t3 3.2 pg/ml, free t4 1.0 ng/DL, thyroglobulin antibodies <1 iu/ml, thyroid peroxidase antibodies 2 IU/ml and lastly ferritin levels were 29 ng/ml. So as far as I know, I am aware that my TSH is definitly elevated but my doctor would not give me thyroid hormone. I am planning on starting the autoimmune paleo diet tomorrow, which only removes oats, nuts, eggs from my current diet..but other than that..what can I do now to lower my TSH without thyroid hormones?
Last year my TSH was 9.5 and is now 2.3 and I haven't taken thyroid medication, just took supplements and vitamins. It wasn't easy. I've learned a lot along the way.
Things I wish I knew last year:
1) Thiamine might be more important during thyroid recovery than any other vitamin. If you research BeriBeri symptoms, you may recognize many thyroid symptoms. As you recover, some things you try may make you HYPER and you'll quickly use up your thiamine stores. Also, a recent study found high dose thiamine to help thyroid patients, and hypothesized we have trouble absorbing thiamine and therefore are deficient.
2) Take more thiamine. You'll get complacent and think you feel fine and don't need it. But you still need it. Take more than you think you need. Thiamine has no upper limit or toxicity.
3) Take every vitamin. Don't just take the ones you've been told you are low in. Those are just the ones they are able to test. Most of the vitamins are not testable. Thyroid problems cause low stomach acid, which causes food not to get broken down, which causes deficiencies in everything.
4) Riboflavin is something no one talks about much, but if you are not taking thyroid hormone, you'll have trouble with this vitamin and so you need to take a lot, and OFTEN. Every few hours. And every time your lips feel dry, or your eyes itch or burn.
5) Take extra vitamin A, in retinyl palmitate form, or the dry version, retinyl acetate. Especially if you have dry eyes, and poor night vision.
6) Go slow with B6, as it can make you hyper. It gets Iodine into the thyroid. It's great. But go slow. And don't be scared of B6 toxicity. Any burning toes you get are more likely to be from thiamine or B12 deficiency, not B6 toxicity. Never take B6 without A LOT of thiamine.
7) Vitamin D is great. Love it. But it's not the whole picture and don't let the hype make you think it's special. Every vitamin is vital. Vitamin D just happens to be easy to test for deficiencies. Vitamin A is just as likely to be low but we do not have a test for this.
8) Take zinc with copper in a 10 to 1 ratio. Take 30 to 50 mg of zinc a day if you have acne or hair loss. Take 3 to 5 mg of copper.
9) Take iron. Your ferritin is just like mine was. I feel better now that my ferritin is above 40, and some people swear that it's best to have it closer to 100.
10) Eat more protein. The lack of stomach acid over time leads to less protein being absorbed. Eat protein with vitamin C, or lemon juice or something acidic.
11) Take L-carnitine, even though it's expensive. And take Tyrosine.
12) Take a digestive enzyme and an acid helper like Betaine HCI and Pepsin.
1) Don't take Melatonin. If you can't sleep, you may be tempted, but this can lower thyroid output and then stopping can jump thyroid output which just strains your body on both ends. Taking B6 and niacin, zinc and magnesium, and tryptophan will allow you to make your own melatonin in the right amount.
2) Don't go on thyroid hormone and then suddenly stop. Probably obvious.
3) Don't go anywhere without your vitamins. Eventually you can get to that point, but until you know for sure, take them everywhere. I keep mine in one of those big plastic weekday pill boxes, and I have a big purse.
4) Don't drink green tea or black tea. It has a lot of fluoride and will lower your thyroid function.
I'm sure I have forgotten some things, but for the most part, this is what I've done to get myself on track. And as a bonus, I no longer need any allergy meds, and the three breast lumps I've had are completely gone!
Hi, everyone! I would like to recommend you fully natural treatment (which is very important for me) against psoriasis. When I came back from the vacation from Israel, I decided to continue my psoriasis treatment with products with the Dead Sea minerals. And that was a good decision - Psoeasy cream , as well as other their products ( I also use shampoo) keep my skin in order.
As described in the subject line, this is what I am (most likely) currently dealing with. Some of this still needs to be verified in detail.
I had been battling candida for years but thought I had gotten to a good place, so I started being less aggressive in my treatment of it.
I had been walking around with it for more than half my life with intense bloating after every meal, abdominal pains, constipation, mood swings, anxiety, psoriasis, sleep problems - all of which getting worse with my monthly cycle. Then, in 2012, my immune system plummeted dramatically - just shortly after I finally stopped taking my rather high-intensity contraceptives, which I had been on for 12 years straight- and before I knew it, I was running from one doctor to the next with no answers and increasing symptoms. It took 6 months for me to receive an official diagnosis.
I believe my candida was originally triggered by the contraceptives mentioned above, which I also started taking too early in live (around age 14), as well as a genetic predisposition of some kind as my mom has some of the symptoms I have in milder form.
Either way, so afer years of treating candida, I was taking a well-deserved break from the heavy supplementation (I was still taking probiotics at night, though) and had loosened my diet up a bit, when towards the beginning of this year, I got a bunch of infections every month. Sinus infection, urinary tract infection, eye infection...I beat all of those back with a more or less steady intake of Silver Biotics, and then the heavy bloating started again.
And I had one new symptom: An intense pain below my right rib cage, coming and going. I ended up in the hospital with what turned out to be a dyskinetic gallbladder (ejection fraction 17%). The surgeon (of course) said it had to come out. I was sceptical, thank goodness. I didn't need to come out at all, as I was actually able to manage its function and the pain with supplements like beetroot extract, choline, and taurine. It's working so-so now, but I can feel the pain coming back sometimes.
But I also figured the following: Increased bile flow = less candida. I had read that theory before somewhere and I'm thinking it's still valid.
But I thought there had to be some deeper reason as to why my gallbladder wasn't working properly. I did some research and found out that hormone fluctuations can influence gallbladder flow. Since my problems all get way more intense with my monthly cycle, it made sense. So I ordered a hormone panel saliva test with an accredited lab in Germany (where I am currently staying with my family for recovery reasons, I have to be back in the States in a little over a week, though)and they found something scary: While all of my other levels are fine and within range, Cortisol being somewhat elevated, though, my progesterone levels are at a whopping 2140 pg/ml. Not sure how much that is in American measurement units, but the reference range for the luteal phase (which is when it was measured) only goes up to 400 pg/ml.
To clarify, I did not supplement ANY progesterone. I took: a multivitamin, magnesium, digestive enzymes, my gallbladder-helping beetroot extract, choline, taurine, colostrum to help my digestive tract, some milk thistle for the liver, small amounts of Swedish Bitters, and the herb Ashwagandha, as I found it helped me with the nervous tension I seem to be having constantly.
Now, my naturopath lady here in Germany believes that most of these supplements would help increase progesterone and told me to cut them out. I am now only taking milk thistle and choline, and I have added artichoke extract to replace the beetroot extract during the day to at least keep on helping my gallbladder. At night, I take probiotics.
She has also given me a long, long list of things that supposedly promote progesterone and it basically includes every healthy, natural food one could eat: Vegetables, fruit, legumes, grains, pseudo grains, meat, dairy, eggs,and 90% of herbs.It is impossible to stick to that list and still live. The list goes into no detail whatsoever about the degree to which these foods are supposed to promote progesterone production. Oh, and she also told me to relax. She should really have her own stand up comedy routine.
Sorry for the super-long, rambling message, but I figured the more information I can give you guys, the better. If anyone has any input whatsoever, that would be of great help to me.
I am, of course, not sitting idly by. I have an appointment with the extremely knowledgeable Eric Bakker N.D. on Sunday, I just had several vials of blood taken yesterday at an endocrinological practice in Frankfurt to double check those high numbers and also look for possible thyroid connections, I am trying to do a candida test before I leave, and I am willing to do any and all testing to get to the bottom of this problem once I am back in the States.
However, as it currently stands, I am having a candida flare up, a psoriasis flare up, and am intensely scared about, well ,everything.
Healing Psoriasis: The Natural Alternative by Dr. John Pagano
THE DRUG FREE PROGRAM THAT REALLY WORKS
This is an important book because the disease manifestation is immediately visual. No expensive lab tests. What you do immediately registers. You know if you do right or you do wrong.
Psoriatic and eczematic people are special, we are rewarded by a self defense mechanism that allows us to expel toxins and acids through our skin instead of developing tumors. Tumors are also survival adaptations, but in the 21st century with the dominance of upside down western medicine, tumors mean $$$ and every company is out to give you cancer screenings to be able to “detect” more cancers earlier so they can make more $$$ from you.
Learn from the methods to cure another “incurable” disease, read Healing Psoriasis: The Natural Alternative by Dr. John Pagano even if you are not psoriatic or eczematic. As I said before, all diseases are the same.
Skin diseases like psoriasis are very good for educating yourself about health. I myself learned about the principles of healing with my own eczema cure. Yes cure, cure cure. For some cultural strange reason some countries who are beholden to medical paradigms are forbidden to use the word CURE. Well I’m saying Dr. John Pagano is describing CURE.
For that matter psoriasis is not even completely a skin condition. It can also affect other parts of the body such as the nails and joints (psoriatic arthritis).
Eczema is in large part from an allergic reaction and partially liver toxicity.
But neither are survival mechanisms.
In addition acids are not expelled through the skin. The skin is naturally acidic from the flora present on the skin to begin with. What is excreted though the pores in the skin is sweat, which contains ALKALINE ammonia. Bacteria present on the skin break down these ammonia compounds releasing ammonia gas, contributing to body odor.
Learn from the methods to cure another â€œincurableâ€ť disease, read Healing Psoriasis: The Natural Alternative by Dr. John Pagano even if you are not psoriatic or eczematic. As I said before, all diseases are the same.
No, all diseases ARE NOT the same. But are you now claiming that psoriasis and eczema are diseases instead of self defense mechanisms?
You can buy the book
No thanks. Based on the fact that he was not aware of the above facts I pointed out I will stick to reliable sources of information.
This is what I keep harping about.
Auto-Immune causes is BS.
If you follow the auto-immune BS, you will always be sick.
Who wants to be sick for the rest of his life? Raise your right hand and follow the auto-immune paradigm.
In the meantime, follow a RAW PALEO DIET and get rid of any auto immune disease BS.
He's actually right about it being auto immune but that said we can just say toxicity because that is what is causing the auto immune condition. The raw living foods diet provides the nutrition required to return the system to a balanced state. It can be helped along with cleanses and detoxification methods.
One thing that is important in many diseases is resetting the amygdala. Look into this. It is an important part of the limbic system of the brain and is the circuit that operates both consciously and subconsciously in identifying threats, When it is set to improper informational feedback it can be a huge reason why people don't get well on any diet, even raw. When functioning on faulty info it is an internal source of stress. It needs to be reset in many cases.
Do you even understand autoimmunity and what it really means?
This is what I keep harping about.
Auto-Immune causes is BS.
If you follow the auto-immune BS, you will always be sick.
Who wants to be sick for the rest of his life? Raise your right hand and follow the auto-immune paradigm.
How do you explain the presence of autoantibodies in psoriasis? Again learn what autoimmunity is.
In the meantime, follow a RAW PALEO DIET and get rid of any auto immune disease BS.
Talking about inflammatory and auto immune diseases.
Mere change to Paleo Diet cured inflammatory and auto immune diseases.
And you did not research autoimmunity. Tell all of us how the diet both destroys autoimmune pathogens and regulates the immune response.
You are probably still sick, that is why you spew out so much of this Auto Immune BS.
And you clearly ASSUME way too much rather than rely on real evidence. If you check my postings you would have known that I am not sick with anything. I had allergies as a baby, which I outgrew when I was 5 and have not had any chronic illnesses since. The last time I went to the doctor I was 16 and that was merely for a simple upper respiratory infection.
You want to calm down a hyperactive immune system
As I said you need to research the facts. Autoimmunity IS NOT from a hyperactive immune system. It is a suppression of the immune system. This is why things that suppress immunity, such as stress, stimulants and steroids make autoimmune conditions worse.
And in order to cure a disease properly it really helps to understand the disease. So far the information on psoriasis, eczema and autoimmunity have all been wrong. Therefore you just keep providing us with more links to avoid since they are obviously full of bogus information. So thanks for that.
It is not "auto immune" it is autoimmune. And it is not an alien word, it is a very common word related to a number of conditions including rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, juvenile diabetes, Sjorgen's syndrome, etc. Saying a particular disease is autoimmune is just like stating that a cold or flu is viral. It is a method of classification of a disease that helps to identify its cause. If you don't know the cause or contributing factors to be addressed you cannot even start to understand how to cure the problem. It would be like going back 1,000 years before they knew viruses were responsible for the flu and expecting to be cured of the flu. Now we know the cause and contributing factors to the different forms of influenza that allows us to know what herbs and other treatments will work best against the influenza virus and the symptoms it leads to.
Who the hell cares of your complicated sounding terminologies?
See above, and autoimmunity is hardly complicated.
All we care is CURE.
And again how do you plan to cure something that you have no comprehension about? Getting back to psoriasis how are you addressing the cGMP excess that causes the psoriasis? Bottom line is that unless you are controlling cGMP levels you ARE NOT curing psoriasis. So again how do you address this?
And we didn't need your auto immune blathering.
Just because you are incapable of comprehending the real facts this does not make the real facts blathering. The fact that you have to use such an excuse just proves to me that you do not have any real answer to my questions because you clearly do not understand psoriasis.
The sick do not care for auto immune terminologies.
Oh, so now you are a mind readier that has taken it upon yourself to speak for everyone here. Sorry to break it to you but you are not that special. There are plenty of people who are interested in understanding what they are dealing with and what they are doing to treat it. When people take suggestions blindly they end up in trouble. It is like going to the doctor for arthritis and taking the ibuprofen the doctor gives you without question. Not only will the ibuprofen fail to cure the arthritis, it will also lead to bone deterioration. And the drug can also have other serious side effects such as heart attack, stroke, kidney failure, hepatitis, loss of vision,......... So given the choice you really think that nobody would like to know the facts about their arthritis and the potential dangers of the recommendations being given them? People who follow blindly like this are being foolish and have nobody to blame but themselves when they fail to cure their problem and end up suffering the side effects.
I am still waiting for you to answer my questions. If I post the information you are asking for then I am giving you the answers. But as long as you keep ignoring my questions you keep proving your ignorance on the subject.
So answer the questions I posted for you to prove that you have a clue what you are talking about then I will post what you requested.
At Least John Pagano comes up with a book that teaches people what he knows, complete with pictures and testimonials.
At least I come up with websites that teach people cures with pictures and testimonials.
All you got is useless "autoimmune" blather insulting us.
Since you can't put up anything. You can shut up now.
Don't waste curezone space. What are you a western medical pharmaceutical TROLL?
I think I will make a blog post lambasting all of these HOAXSTERS promoting autoimmunity crap when they themselves HAVE ZERO CURE PROTOCOL. These people are the same hoaxsters posting that (insert disease name here) is INCURABLE.
Believing in INCURABLE diseases is a SUPERSTITION.
If anybody else has an autoimmunity theory, back it up with CURE so as to validate your theory.
It is always refreshing to learn new things. Curezone is for sharing. So share and propagate the knowledge.
Autoimmunity simply refers to the body's immune system having difficulty in identifying itself due to a break down in communication (oversimplification). This of course happens due to toxicity and lack of nutrition. Parasites show up due to the toxicity (creatures love swamps).
The body breaks down in a myriad of ways when it can't get rid of toxins. Automimmune problems are but one of a raft of break downs. Some like to explore the breakdown of these breakdowns through labeling. Others just want to heal.
I look at it as one disease, many faces. Toxicity and lack of nutrition. We can make this complicated or we can go on a labeling journey and confuse the issue. It is what mainstream medicine is really good at. ;-)
Herbs can assist. So can various sound and light frequencies. (it's all information that can be corrective).
ROTFLMAO!!!! You definitely need to seek help, but it is not for a physical problem.
First of all I have made formulas for people in the past for psoriasis that worked great because I addressed the real causes of psoriasis. Furthermore I have posted about the herbs and supplements used a number of times on the CZ boards. But again I wanted you to respond with answers to my questions to see if you really understand psoriasis. Instead you are repeatedly responding with attacks wasting Curezone space as you call it. Since you have been unable to respond with answers to my questions you have proven my point that you don't have a clue what you are talking about.
And since it is clear that you CANNOT answer my questions that would be easy for anyone knowing about psoriasis to answer here are the answers for you from one of my earlier posts. Don't go choking on your feet that you have jammed in your mouth!!!:
