Borax Mycoplasma Remedy

Posted by D (St. Paul, MN) on 12/30/2006

I am writing to give you a kind of follow-up on the borax mycoplasma remedy - you asked for some response in this regard? In response to your suggestions for treating beet red facial skin/rosacea/lupus, and-to the extent that I could find ingredients- I decided to try and flush out whether or not my beet red facial skin was indeed some kind of a bug or not by trying the borax/h202 and then alternating with lavender/camphor/tea tree and golden seal since I couldn't find any of the chlorides you mentioned per se.

The first few days the redness started to die down but suddenly, I found that my middle and lower back had begun to break out in patchy rash, then quite extensive and very very itchy and painful. I decided to brave or stupid ahead and continue with the topical treatments and also began taking the fulvic minerals and increasing magnesium, baking soda, vinegar, etc. (many of the things you suggested to alkalize, support and boost immune system). What I see and continue to see are millions of little black spots (mycoplasmas?) coming off on the cotton balls every time I wipe. It's kind of scary -- if these are mycoplasms (are they?) it almost seems as though I've opened a pandora's box. Each time I wipe the skin it becomes very inflamed then cools and feels good. I continue to get these little tiny black dots on the cotton balls but am wondering if I've waded in to water I shouldn't be into. I would be happy to give you more information if you'd need it. Many blessings Ted. Very truly,

Alcohol dab will do fine, no water. However, borax seems to do a better job killing. Adding a peroxide seems to cause drying, so just get a saturated solution of borax apply the skin WOULD stop them from finding ways for this little mycoplasma to survive.

Getting a diarrhea by taking magnesium hydroxide (milk of magnesia) without other nasty ingredients such as aluminum compound would stop the black spots almost immediately.

The body is ridding itself of an awful amounts of mycoplasma, but I prefer it goes down the toilet than on your skin.

Over the long run you need to understand the major issues of pH. The reason why it came back was that the body's pH was not sufficiently alkaline.

Most of the problems I see are in establishing certain priorities. The required treatment does open up a pandora's box in detoxifying the system. BUT there are two priorities that are needed to set things straight:

1. Never underestimate the power of pH. This means take the urinary pH measurements seriously. It must be within 6.5 - 7.35. When this is done, the detoxification goes down to the toilet, instead of the skin. As usual you may need to increase the baking soda up to 2 teaspoon per day twice a day. But it is hard to tell, only your urine measurements will tell you a complete story. As usual, when you take baking soda (with lemon or acv), the urine pH will be reflected within 2 hours of the dose.

2. Borax. A pinch of borax with a huge glass of water and possibly lemon juice. Normally someone cannot stand the 1/4 teaspoon per glass, so this is dosed throughout the day, using the same amount.

3. Drinking water: Sea salt 1/4 teaspoon in one liter of water.

As for the skin treatments, etc. You are doing o.k. You seem to be MISSING an important ingredient, the zinc. So when you cannot find it, try zinc gluconate, zinc citrate, if you can. It is the key towards immunity.

As usual, feedback would help you toward doing the right thing in reducing the problem. Yes, skin issues do happen and THIS WILL BE LESSENED when sufficient baking soda is added! The key to good control of this condition is to understand almost an absolute importance of eating alkaline forming foods and the rules after a lot of trial and error, I found that 70-80% of the diets must be fresh green leafy vegetables and whole fruits.

Absolutely NO bread, pizzas, coke, cake, cookies, candies, meats (rarely), chicken once or twice a week, NO FRIED foods, for example. These are all acid forming foods.

I thank you very much for posting this feedback. And some other things, such as artemisia(wormwood) seems to respond well with this treatment too. Certain supportive treatments of licorice extract also helps. In some rare instances, DHEA will help, but can't be for certain because few number of cases to conclude.

Again, please do not forget the pH and borax, they remain the biggest factor towards this cure. Priorities need to be established!

Scientists today don't seem to interested in finding out a cure as they are obviously financially supported by drug companies. It is therefore necessary to find them ourselves and post these feedback and exchange of information.
