Boric Acid Vs Borax

Posted by Lisa on 10/17/2007

Ted: I have had Lupus now for just over 10 years. I have refused any and all medications for this disease and refuse to put them in my body. Of course, my doctors keep telling me that I will die if I dont get on something. I went into the hospital because of what felt like lactic acid buildup, I guess experimenting with copper, i was detoxing way too fast. Dr's got a hold of me, drugged me up, pumped me up with over 1000 mg of steroids, given I dont know how many antibiotics. because of the steroids my heart was only beating 5% of its capacity, had stage 4 kidney failure, temporary diabetes, and hepatitis A, everything that could go wrong did. I felt raped. I was comatosed for 2 months. Could not believe they nearly killed me. Now I feel worse. On my own, I'm on Nystatin, 1tsp baking soda, and 2 tbsp of acv. I just now got my hands on boric acid, I'm not sure but I think that is the same as borax. Can you confirm if it is? And how much is a safe dose. Anymore suggestion or advice for me would be greatly appreciated

A nystatin is a reasonable remedy, not a perfect one. Lupus has myocplasma and behaves like fungus, but in other cases a lupus can be misdiagnosed, when it is really Morgellon's disease. One easy way to tell if if lavender oil was applied to the skin, the red spots would run away to a new location within about less than an hour. Some people describe this as moving red spots and some told me the insect bites seems to be located in the same area. Certain essential oils are somewhat insecticidal, especially orange oil, which comes from an orange peel. The dose I might use is 5-10 drops mixed in 1/2 glass of water, but a skin application requires that it be diluted down to below 5% in an alcohol solution (more like 1%) and applied to the skin to rid of insect under the skin. However, a more effective remedy is the saturated borax in 1% hydrogen peroxide solution applied to the skin might be helpful too.

As to the boric acid, it is not exactly the same as borax. Boric acid is an acid form of borax, and the boron contents are much higher in a boric acid. Hence, if boric acid is used, although I won't use it, the dose is roughly 1/2 of whatever borax were if I were desperate enough. Then I would still add baking soda to neutralize the acid, such as 1 teaspoon of baking soda per liter. One example I find of extreme necessity is 1/16 teaspoon of boric acid plus 1 teaspoon of baking soda, to allow the baking soda to neutralize the acid. If a borax were use, things would be a lot easier, such as 1/8 or 1/4 teaspoon of borax and that's it.

In the long run, I would much prefer buying a B.P. grade Borax, or USP grade borax, or even an Analytical or Technical grad from a chemical suppliers and use that. The best grade is the food grade, but I don't think they have that in the market.

A lupus is most important remedy is the borax and the baking soda, if I have nothing else to work on. It has becoming important that 6 drops of H2O2 added to the 1 glass of water can also return some energy back to the system.

You were got the right idea on the copper as being toxic to the mycoplasma. But their use is relatively difficult. Actually when they are given as a livestock feed for example, they will use a less than 1% concentration of either copper sulfate or copper chlorde and only a small fraction of that is use, such as a 1 tablespoon of the 1% solution. That's just the

technicality, but the copper chloride can be converted into a safer copper peptide by adding 0.5% solution of copper chloride to a soy sauce. At least that is how science laboratory does it when making a simple copper peptide, since the soy sauce is rich in amino acid. One peculiarly well known amino acid is the Bragg's amino acid.

Essential oils are also antifungal, such as adding drops of it from vetiver, thyme, clove, cinnamon, are some of the possibilities.

The key getting lupus in control (just the foundations) actually is to raise the pH urine to 7, through the use of 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda plus 1/4 teaspoon of citric acid. The dose may be increase or decrease necessary to raise the body of the immune system. The second is the borax, as I have described.The third that is optional is the 35% H2O2 6 drops that seems to get a good feedback whenever weakness is indicated.

Hope some of this information is helpful for you!
