When Should I Schedule Different Treatments?

Posted by Nathan (Nashville, TN) on 06/11/2007

I have noticed all sorts of amazing remedies and have eagerly started trying a few of them. Just doing the ACV alone has made a general overall improvment to my health and energy. I then noticed a potential conflict when I was once again on the site. I saw somehwere that some of the remedies worked as an oxidant while others as an antioxidant and should not be performed within three hours of each other (specifically, AVC and H2O2) In addition, you are not suppose to eat between certain times of each treatment as well. Is there any way to get clarity on this and maybe provide a sample time schedule for doing two or more of these treatments. I want to do the ACV, H202 and oil pulling. I don't know which should be done first and not sure how to incorporate them all in a day, making sure that they are done without conflict to each other, as well as including an eating routine. Thanks for your help, Nathan

Dear Nathan:
It would seem that you want to do all the major remedies! Usually I would be just happy with just only one. However a scheduling where such remedies is all needed, should work as follows so they won't clash. This is just the general maintenance remedy where certain remedies are strategically placed at a point where the body needs it the most or just a bit before.

'1. First thing in the morning. Brush teeth.

2. Do oil pulling (add peppermint oil helps reduce toxins)

3. Brush teeth again to remove residual oil from swishing. This must be done well to remove all the traces of oil left, especially in the back region, and throat region of the mouth.
after 5 minutes...

4. Apple cider vinegar 2 tablespoon plus 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water.
After 30 minutes or more...

5. Eat breakfast

6. Eat Lunch

7. Since the body is weakest, and its immune resistance is down and oxygen requirement is highest near the time to quit the work or early afternoon, H2O2 therapies plus baking soda is a definite plus here.

Assuming the work time is 9 a.m. to 5 a.m., so the best time to take the H2O2, at least for me is around 2-4 p.m. My guess, is about 3-4 p.m. For children that tends to occur sooner at an earlier time closer to 2 p.m.

A preferred dose for most people is 3 drops of 3% H2O2 in 1 glass of water with 1/16 teaspoon of baking soda (more like a tiny pinch). The maximum dose is 12 drops per glass of 3% H2O2 but in very few instance of extreme exhaustion does it require that kind of dose, which don't happen often anyway since the person who do take it also needs to have also gotten used to the dose or have taken it before without problems also.

8. Eat dinner (before 6 p.m.) It is actually unhealthy to eat after 5, but then, people will be driving home from work so that is technically not possible. So one hour would be within the limits that it won't be fattening to the body. Assuming most people sleep by 10-11 p.m. In between time if hunger pangs strikes, I usually eat bee pollen, but vegetables and very light salad might do.

9. Before Bedtime, 2 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar is taken again with 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water.

The morning apple cider vinegar and baking soda, can be switched on alternate days to just one whole freshly squeezed lime (approximately 8 teaspoon) and 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda, in 1/2 glass of water, also twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening.

It is not necessary that this is switched, but in some cases where the body is not alkalized enough, then the lemon/acv switching is needed. ACV gives you the energy by detoxification of lactic acidosis, and the malic acid components give the body energy. While the lime/lemon provides the antioxidant and alkalization needed by the body, as well as some few other benefits.

Well this is my take on combined remedy, not a perfect one but at least it won't clash with the other remedies!
