Combining Remedies

Posted by K on 02/22/2008

My whole family has been overrun by candida.' Our ph has been off for years. As a result, many, many health problems. Found a website with info on 35% grade h202 and of course your site for the ACV and oil pulling.

Gradually building up from 1 drop in 6-8 oz of water 3x's daily of h202 until you reach 25 drops 3x's daily over a course of 2 weeks(for those who can stomache this, please note this is only for CHRONIC ailments and 35% FOOD GRADE h202 ONLY, purchased online or at health food stores). After 2 weeks, once you are up to the full doasge, continue for a week (may need to keep going for weeks, even up to 4 months, depending how bad your case is) and then slowly taper off, decreasing each dosage by 1-2 drops until you reach a maintaining level of 1-3 drops daily, or every other day, depending on what is best FOR YOU. Note: 35% food grade h202 needs to be handled with kid gloves. It is very strong and MUST NOT be abused or taken in large quantities. Death can occur if taken at full strength. Keep in refigerator and if contact with skin, rinse area immediately.

I think if I had to do it all over again, I would have gotten our ph levels balanced BEFORE starting course of h202 therapy, but as it was, I was already in the middle of it when I stumbled upon this site for using ACV in hopes of curing other ailments we all had. For the ACV therapy I used the standard 2 Tbl ACV (organic unpasteurized is best, NOT white vinegar!) mixed with 1/4 tsp baking soda.

Finding the right dosage for your younger children will have to use some smart thinking and regulating. Only you know your child best. Always start with smaller amounts when in doubt and gradually build up. My 16 year old could not stomache more than 20 drops of 35% h202 3x's a day. For my 11 year old I did a max of 14 drops 3x daily and my 6 year old, 8 drops 3xs daily. I have heard lecitin can be used to help lessen the nausea that is often associated with taking h202 orally, though I have not personally tried it.
As for the ACV, my teen was ok with the adult dosage and my younger two by cutting it in half.

Ted has stated on this site that h202 and ACV should not be mixed, so either do one or the other, however, I found for my husband as well as myself, alternating days has been working out so far. In other words, one day doing h202 and then the next day only using ACV.

Oil pulling has also proved beneficial for us, 1 Tbl EVOO (extra virg. olive oil) swishing and pulling through teeth until it turns white and liquid like. Twice weekly.

Thanks to all who have passed on info in order to improve the quality of life for others. You guys rock Earth Clinic, (and a shout out to Dr. David G. Williams for h202 therapy as well)!

The H2O2 and Apple cider vinegar mixed with baking soda should be kept (updated remedy) at least 3-6 hours apart or alternate days so that they won't neutralize each other. So this newer remedy does not require to be taken on alternate days, but kept 3-6 hours apart so that the remedy will be much more effective. While more H2O2 drops definitely helps and is as effective as MMS, it is not as toxic in the long run as the MMS, as the body simply has little tolerance for chlorinated compounds in general, with exception of salt. Some other remedies I have found to help candida besides alkalization is the borax remedy such as 1/4 teaspoon of borax in one liter of water plus 30 drops of 3% H2O2, which is generally a mild remedy but a more effective one against candida. Although 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water taken twice a day further discourages candida, it should be noted that borax or boron are strongly antifungals and has longer effect in getting rid of candida. The other thing I might add that is important is the use of some sea salt such as 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt a day in 1/2 glass of water can raise the salinity of the body further discouraging candida growth. Oil pulling helps in removing heavy metals which sometimes fuels candida growth. Excess blood calcium supports candida growth which is why alkalization commonly reduces blood calcium discouraging. I have also found recently that either or d-mannose and xylitol, at 1/2 teaspoon can perhaps taken twice or three times a day prevents fungus from attaching and discourage their growth too. Of course I tend to support milder remedies but using a couple of supplements taking advantages of synergistic effect instead of any particular single remedies to gang up against the yeast, without much side effects from such use. Certain other mineral supplements discourages candida, such as chromium, vanadium and tungsten, but also molybdenum. However current supplements in the market the dose is too small to see results. It should be noted that at least in wood preservatives, chromium does indeed have antifungal properties, but some literature shows sodium molybdate might also discourage candida growth too. However for my own candida, I was simply cured simply taking two doses of sea salt, alkalization and some hydrogen peroxide. The sea salt seems to help in some cases where the dose is seen as 1/2 teaspoon per 1/2 glass of' water and then I take later 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda twice a day. I am also most helped with borax, but I need to take it for about a week. So if I do this, I need not take too much hydrogen peroxide. My maximum dose for hydrogen peroxide is simply 1 and 1/2 tablespoon of 3% Hydrogen peroxide in 1/2 glass of water, but I rarely go that far as using other things added is most helpful, but without the added side effects. It should be noted still despite all these complicated remedies I have, that I think sea salt and baking soda were most helpful for me, and for stubborn cases I might consider adding D-mannose and/or xylitol.
