Hair Loss Due to Scalp Fungus

Posted by Anonymous on 06/19/2011

Urgent Please Help, Hair loss due to definite Scalp fungus:

Hi Ted, please could you help me cure my problem once and for all. I don't trust anyone else and I am willing to do exactly what you tell me to, religiously until my problems gone.


Male, 21, medium length hair

Have greasy hair/scalp, (I take zinc) White sticky scalp fungus, Hair loss is getting worse

Scalp is sticky before I wash it, doesn't smell, doesn't hurt/burn/no sores on scalp, only itchy when I'm rinsing my hair after shampoo. When I pick my scalp, WHITE sticky substance ends up in nails.

I wash my hair every day, I tried H2O2, AVC, Borax, Baking soda, also Tea tree oil and just about everything else you mentioned, They worked for a period of time but I want to get rid of this scalp fungus once and for all. If I don't wash hair everyday my scalp gets really bad (greasy and full of white sticky fungus) and my hair ends up falling out. I know I shouldn't wash my hair everyday but I have to in order to stop my scalp causing problems and my hair falling out more .I tried shampooing with borax for a period of time but my hair would still be greasy and my scalp sticky with fungus.

From your previous posts I know what to take internally; I read nearly everything you ever wrote on Earth clinic, a true genius, seriously, I wish there were more people like you, of your intellect and kindness. I'm more than happy to make donations if I can get rid of this problem as money and time wasted will no longer be a problem.


I'm trying:

60% Milk of magnesia, 40% water topical, too early to comment
Stannous Chloride (tin) Just arrived yesterday. I must try it, Hopefully it works.
Lugols, made myself: 100g potassium iodide,50g iodine prills, about 800ml distilled water, What % Would this be?

I'm also looking to buy supplements/chemicals off EBAY:

Ammonium chloride: http://shop.ebay.ie/i.html?_nkw=ammonium+chloride&_sacat=0&_odkw=edta&_osacat=0&_trksid=p3286.c0.m270.l1313

Manganese sulfate (N.B), which is the best one to buy on eBay? http://shop.ebay.co.uk/i.html?_nkw=manganese+sulfate&_sacat=0&_odkw=manganese&_osacat=0&_trksid=p3286.c0.m270.l1313 Which is best?
http://cgi.ebay.ie/Manganese-Sulfate-Powder-32-Mn-1-Pound-/270341419492?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3ef19ab1e4 Min 32%, PURE???Does this look okay?

Potassium Iodide: I'm thinking of making a solution and applying this to the scalp, what do you think? Is this what's known as white/decolourised iodine?

EDTA http://shop.ebay.ie/?_from=R40&_trksid=m570&_nkw=edta which looks best?

DMSO maximum percent, 99._% http://shop.ebay.ie/?_from=R40&_trksid=m570&_nkw=dmso which looks best?

Fulvic or Humic, which is best? Internal and Scalp application http://shop.ebay.co.uk/i.html?_nkw=humic+acid&_sacat=0&_odkw=huic+acid&_osacat=0&_trksid=p3286.c0.m270.l1313

Humic 80%: http://cgi.ebay.ie/Humic-Acid-Water-soluble-powder-80-Humic-Pure-Product-/350269342147?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item518dae01c3

Or Fulvic: http://shop.ebay.co.uk/i.html?_nkw=fulvic+acid&_sacat=0&_odkw=humic+acid&_osacat=0&_trksid=p3286.c0.m270.l1313

Is Humic/Fulvic acid as effective as Tannic acid when applied topically with DMSO? I'm cautious of the scarring from tannic acid. If there is anything else on eBay which I should buy, please let me know. I have tried most internal supplements from your previous posts on earth clinic but not religiously.

Please help me get rid of it once and for all, I will do EXACTLY what you tell me to do for whatever period of time if you have time to get to this email, If you choose to answer this could you PLEASE give me a detailed account on WHAT TO DO, tell me the amount of days I do everything for and when I should expect to see results so I have indication of my progress and how long it will take to get rid of this problem so I won't have to email you as I'm aware of the amount of emails you get, your some man, a true inspiration.

Thank you Ted for reading, I look forward to you reply, well if I'm lucky enough.

Ammonium chloride solution and another one would be tannic acid solution. Ammonium chloride is prepared 1 tablespoon per 500 cc water. You wash with that. Tannic acid is another one I used, 1/4 teaspoon per 100 cc water and you wash with it. These two I used in the past and it does help. If you want to make tannic acid solution stronger, add some 20 drops to the solution. If it is a sticky type of fungus, I found milk of magnesia helps, which is made up of magnesium hydroxide 5% solution. You can mix it with 50% water on top of it, seems to last a day or two. You can wash all solutions after 5 - 10 minutes if you want.

From my experience, tannic acid with DMSO always works, mixed with water, if not there IS another solution, and it is for the treatment of mycobacterium.


Sorry for delays, emails are overwhelming!

The original Listerine (the yellow one) full strength applied every night for 10 days absolutely cures. Also use it on entire head prior to shampooing.
