Autoimmune Disease Treatment

Posted by Jennifer (Lake Village, Indiana) on 02/22/2008

I actually have a question about oil pulling, I have a autoimmune system, (my immune system attacks my body) I'm very sick & tired of being sick & tired, are there ANY SIDE AFFECTS to oil pulling and how safe is it. I don't like taking medicine,(almost died from an allergic reaction, some help science is) I do try to treat things with home remedies, this is the first time I heard of it. Also my bf suffers from crohns disease,rheumatoid arthritis, and had a brain stem stroke, she is only 32 & has 4 kids could this benefit her & could there be any bad effects from meds she is on? Any replies will be GREATLY APPRECIATED! Thank You & God Bless! P.S. Sorry if I posted this wrong!

For my experience, an autoimmunity is due to a fungus like organism and heavy metals. That two is the major cause I have found and treating these two cause I have found to work the best. In event of an autoimmunity, I prefer much more to alkalize first, preferably 2 tablespoons of lemon juice plus 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water taken twice times a day. The alkalization tend to reduce the autoimmunity if done for at least two weeks. Therefore on the second or third week will I start oil pulling. To minimize the problems from oil pulling from detox effect as minimum and problem free, I will add a drop or two of peppermint oil into the oil, preferably olive oil to enable the reduction of heavy metals which tends to cause autoimmunity, by pulling heavy metals out of the saliva, which are circulated and recirculated constantly in the body. I will keep the oil pulling to do only 5 minutes or less would be sufficient enough to remove heavy metals. This can be once a day or preferably every other day. Finally the most important remedy against autoimmunity is the borax remedy which a minimum of 1/4 teaspoon of borax dissolved in one liter of water, plus perhaps 30 drops of 3% H2O2. The only reason why H2O2 is added to help increase energy in case the autoimmunity caused a weakness to the system. If there is too much H2O2 and causes some headache, I may take 1000 mg of sodium ascorbate vitamin C, which goes away relatively quick within a couple of hours. These are just the bare basic remedy that I have found most important for me. In addition the adding of d-mannose 500 mg taken three times a day is also helpful too. It prevents pathogens from attaching to healthy cells, however, I have found xylitol and even mannitol to have similar effects also. I have noticed that the above remedy were also helpful to Crohn disease, and rheumatoid arthritis. But in case of arthritis, the borax remedy needs to be taken 4 or 5 days out of a week, and 1/2 teaspoon of xylitol were at least added to help. The d-mannose 1/2 teaspoon can also be substituted or added also. Finally in emphasis of rheumatoid arthritis 20,000 i.u. of vitamin D2 and vitamin K2 250 mcg taken once a day further helps in emphasis of that condition. Glucosamine sulfate were only moderately helpful on the joint, at least in the short run.
