Friend with Fibromyalgia and Glaucoma

Posted by C. on 11/22/2008

Hey Ted! I have been thoroughly rummaging through the Earth Clinic website and have come across many great remedies. I definitely would like to learn from this site, as I intend to learn more about herbal healing right now so I can possibly start a practice once I graduate from college. I have this wonderful friend who has severe physical problems and I feel horrible that such a terrific person should have to endure such agony. She has been on Paxil for 11 years, I believe from the research on the website that she may have been exposed to a chronic flouride poisoning. She has since been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Glaucoma. She has extreme depression and would like to get off of the Paxil, but she has horrible withdrawal pain and even higher levels of depression when she does not take the drug. Although, she is pushing through this and slowly lowering her doses while hoping to get off the drug completely this summer. She also has been experiencing a chronic third eye pain for the past few weeks and nothing seems to lessen the pain that is felt. The Doctor has recently decided that the pressure in her left eye is far too high and she will need to get surgery on December 9th for it. I remember her telling me that she could not eat a grapefruit because the acidity was too high, and that her doctor told her that acidity was bad for herfibromyalgia. So I was wondering about the ACV mixture...I would like to create a tonic for her as soon as possible! I have come up withan apple cider vinegar/borax/baking soda/cayenne pepper mixture I think would help her most as well as taking a 5HTP supplement for her depression. Would you recommend this/think this would be effective for her case? And if so, what amounts would I use if I were to make a large 2 liter tonic?

A person with fibromyalgia, I have found is most helped with 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda plus 1/4 teaspoon of potassium bicarbonate in a 1 glass of water taken two or three times a day. The fluoride worsens the fibromyalgia, but helps the pain is true, but magnesium 500 mg, in form of magnesium citrate or magnesium chloride without the calcium was most helpful. Apple cider vinegar is also helpful, but vitamin B complex, taken once every other day is most helpful to get the energy level to higher level. It takes 3 weeks of this to notice improvement, but most clearly seen if it is noticed that when waking up, more energy is seen. With improvement of health comes the less need for pharma drugs. Malic acid about 1/2 teaspoon if mixed with 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda also help, and this become sodium malate. Effects of chlorine may contribute to fibromyalgia as it reduces the body's immune system, rendering weakness after a shower also. Borax can remove fluoride poisoning, hence the dose is 1/8 teaspoon per liter of drinking water, usually 4 days out of a week. This is the major remedy I know of that helped stopped fibromyalgia completely, but that completeness may take over a year after continued gradual improvements. That's only my experience. A quick relief of fibromyalgia maybe obtained using 3-6 drops of 3% H2O2, plus 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda in 1 glass of water. The effects is seen to last about 3 hours, after which an addition is taken. If the body responds to this form of remedy, its often my experience that the cause of this is viral in nature, and hence, other antiviral therapies may help such as clove oil drops, iodine, and 1500 mg of BHT is some of the examples.

Paxil is a phototropic and is only for helping with quitting smoking I thought? try natural relaxing herbs to replace it and soon! Depression and suicidal thoughts happen because of paxil yikes. man dont trust dr even when you think! I can trust this dr, DONT, she needs the apple cider vinegar to help with the hypertension. Also change her glasses or remove them all together for a month, this will reverse the pressure in her eyes. look up case studies on dr bates. to back up my advice
