Ted's Remedies

Posted by L. (Usa) on 09/27/2014

Dear Ted,

I have been following your posts for years. My family and I were living in our house and kept getting sick. We discovered a year and a half later that we had 5 different types of mold and toxic bacteria coming from the air conditioning unit and the roof of our house. We were all very healthy before being exposed to this. Years later we are still suffering the after effects of this as we were put on many antibiotics and medications to treat the symptoms of this mold exposure. My kids all have skin conditions. My daughter and I have been losing our hair for years. We have lost about 75% of our hair and she is only 15. We have been to every dermatologist in South Florida and have had extensive lab work done. We all have low thyroid and candida albicans came up in every test result. I also have mycoplasma in my blood and candida geotrichum. We have been taking the alkalizing formulas and borax in water. It has helped. I was a little reluctant to try other remedies such as the turpentine because I just don't know enough about it. I did however order the sodium thiosulfate in granulated form and put about 10 granules in a spray bottle with some purified water and treated my daughter and I on our scalps. This is the first time in 6 years that our scalps have barely itched. I went to 11 different dermatologists that told us we had seborrheic dermatitis or alopecia areata or tellogen effluvium. I would argue with them and say that there is no way we both started losing our hair at the same time and they would just give us ketaconazole or selenium sulfide shampoo and send us on our way. These shampoos helped a teeny bit but would only work for a short while. I have to thank you for contributions and years of research. My 15 year old was so sad and depressed and bullied for the last several years because of her skin and hair loss. If there is anything else you think we should be doing please write back and let me know.

Forever grateful.

Your daughter's hair maybe helped with tea tree oil applied to her scalp twice or three times before sleep. It does helped hair growth the other is B3 nicinamide 500 mg before sleep. Biotin will also helped 5000 mcg a day and vitamin C. Copper chlorophyll will help kill fungus and help prevent anemia as fungus can cause anemia and also help hair loss.

And stay away from sugar and fructose it just make it worse!

L. replies: "Thank you Ted. It's some sort of scalp fungal infection and we've used tea tree many times but can't get rid of it. What would you recommend we take internally to rid ourselves of this fungus? We take 500 mg of Niacinamide, 5,000 IU's of Biotin and 1000 mg of Vitamin C plus a food based organic multi vitamin and a 30 billion strength probiotic. I will get some Copper Chlorophyll this week and start us on this as well. We eat mostly organic meats and vegetables with either organic brown rice or quinoa. I am afraid to go on oral antifungals but I'm not sure if I can get rid of this any other way at this point and I don't want us to be bald.

Thank you for your time. I appreciate the advice :))"

Ted replies: "Then you need the heavy duty undecylenic acid mixture which is found in various products. Cellulase and borax will also work. If more desperate then try ammonium chloride mix in shampoo products. Castor oil added in tea tree might work but for sure is cellulase and undecylenic acid."

L. replies: "How do we take the undecyclenic acid and cellulase? And the ammonium chloride how much can I add to shampoo? Thank you so much :))"

Ted replies: "Just follow the bottles direction for undecylenic acid as different companies add different concentrations.

Ammonium chloride 1/8 teas in cup of water once a day on the average."

L. replies: "Hi Ted,

I now think that we all contracted Morgellons. We have strange specs coming from our skin, hair loss, I have brain fog, light sensitivity, etc. Can you send me the exact remedy for this please. I saw Tetrasodium EDTA, ammonium chloride, borax, and food grade hydrogen peroxide to use but I want to know exactly how. Thank you soooooo much! " November 11,2014 L. replies: "Hi Ted :) I bought the Tetrasodium EDTA and the ammonium chloride. 5% of each mixed with water? How about for consumption? 10 drops of this mixture by mouth 2x a day? Just want to make sure I mix it correctly. I shampooed with the EDTA this morning and wow! My hair is has almost completely stopped itching and these little white crystal things came out of my scalp. Crazy!! I want to take it internally but just want to confirm the percentage of each. Thank you!! "

Ted replies: "When you prepare 5% of each use about 1/2 teaspoon after meals and before sleep twice a day. It must be mixed in a cup of water. Ted
