Extreme Case of Keloids

Posted by MM on 05/01/2008

I just wanted to thank you so much for your suggestions and I will go to the natural food store tomorrow to pick up these vitamins and ingredients you mentioned. I just wonder why you chose the baking soda for me to drink rather than the apple cider vinegar? Is there a difference in the effects of the two? And should I continue using the 3% peroxide with baking soda masque? I have been using it for 3 days now, the first day it was extremely itchy and then more tolerable the next time. Also I was looking at the keloids and I noticed they are all dubbles like conjoined twin keloids! Many years ago I had cortizone injections and I noticed that instead of this treatment helping me it made everything worse! At the sight where the injection was put in it is as if the keloids began to split in half but just became 2 keloids instread of one!!! I was really upset about this result!!! Is that strange or what?

Thank you again for taking the time to respond to me I really do appreciate it, I pray some of your remedies will help me conquer these ugly horrible scars.

An emergency remedy to stop a terrible itch, which quite often is a fungus, is TOPICAL solution using the baking soda mixed with ammonium chloride solution (or ammonium bicarbonate). The solution can be quite weak, such as in a glass of water 1 tablespoon of baking soda, plus 1/2 teaspoon of ammonium chloride, or preferably ammonium bicarbonate. Much of the itching are quite often reduced rather quickly if sufficient baking soda are taken, although that's never the best solution, but the reason is many simple chemicals aren't easy to find.

In alkalizing drinks is by taking 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda is the simplest possible method of alkalizing in 1/2 glass of water taken at least twice a day. A more better one is to alkalize both extracellular and intracellular fluids, which is 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda plus 1/8 teaspoon of potassium bicarbonate in 1/2 glass of water taken twice a day. However pro allergic foods should generally be avoided.

It should be noted that my personal findings are that citrate, acetates, and malates, as an input to the Krebs cycle which more or less amounts to apple cider vinegar are in general acid forming mostly to the intracellular fluids, while the organic components and minerals are alkaline forming.

'It should also be noted that halogens in general, such as chlorides, fluorides, bromides, etc. are acid forming too. Doctors don't pay much attention to the surnames of chemicals like I do because it has an effect on metabolic acidosis too. Usually in the short term, apple cider vinegar reduces irritation and inflammation. But if I have to take any alkalizing remedy in the long term it would have to be sodium bicarbonate and potassium bicarbonate, plus some ocassional magnesium. An perhaps once a week or twice a week weak sea salt water such as 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt in one liter of drinking water. Fungus in the long run can also be reduced with a borax solution applied to the skin too, which is a mild remedy to get rid of the itchiness.

Another possibility that i used also is the ammonium chloride solution mixed with milk of magnesia, such as 1/2 teaspoon of ammonium chloride plus 1 tablespoon of milk of magnesia in one glass of water, to be applied to the skin to stop the itching.

In general, alkalizing the body is a more effective way to prevent recurrence, but an external application I might consider whenever the itching is frequent, so a faster solution is called for. Hence, either baking soda alone , or baking soda and potassium bicarbonate are the best in the long run. I should know, the fungus count in my home is high, but an often unrecognized issue and sometimes people assume it's just eczema or allergy when in fact it might be an enviromental problem combined with the body's frequent metabolic acidosis, primarily wheat, white flour and bread. Even whole wheat is a problem.

It should be mentioned here that folk medicine in U.S. have no idea about the successes of Eastern medicine, such as Tibetan medicine or Chinese medicine. In those paradigm, and I don't use it, but their findings agreed with my own observation in that people should avoid sour and sweet foods in general, wheat, potatoes, high calcium foods, honey, and fruits whenever inflammation occurs. In my own understanding, these inflammation are primarily acid forming either to extracellularly or intracellularly or both. Much of the Western problems of disease are almost unknown in Eastern medicine because the foods eaten in western cultures are mostly pro-inflammatory foods, whether they be vegetable oils, sour foods and sweets, often resulting in metabolic acidosis. The most dangerous of all foods used is the adding of aspartame, which causes extreme metabolic acidosis, leading to ever worsening skin problems. Therefore, your mentioned of itching may appear to be of fungus like
component. Bacteria itches too, but not as badly as a fungus problem and hence a simple baking soda, or a better baking soda and potassium bicarbonate, is preferred, if of course you can somehow find it from a local chemical supplier or a drug store.

I have found that vitamin e oil is very good for relieving the itchiness of keloids. Vitamin E oil acts as a moisturizer thus softening the keloids, soothing them and relieving the itchiness.
