  • Help!! Recurring Herpes Outbreaks

    I recently had a procedure that caused a good deal of trauma to my mouth. I was warned if I had ever had a cold sore that the procedure would cause me to have a serious outbreak and I was advised to take a Rx for the week prior to the procedure. I did not recall ever having a cold sore so I didn’t take the meds (and I don’t trust meds if I can get along without them). Two days after the procedure both of my lips were developing cold sores from one end of my mouth to another. I began researching safe and natural alternatives. I found them and they work. Within 24 hours of taking the products, the cold sores stopped. In three days they were gone. I took Lysine and GSE and applied lemon balm ointment to my lips.

    Lysine is a natural amino acid that stop the food source for herpes.

    Physicians have observed that the herpes simplex virus becomes inactive just ten minutes after the application of grapefruit seed extract. I used to take GSE almost daily, putting 10-15 drops in a little water up to 3 times daily if I have something I am trying to control. It will wipe our candida too, assuming you aren’t feeding it with sugar. If you are going to use it topically, it is VERY strong so be sure to dilute 3 drops in a tablespoon of oil. If you don’t, it can temporarily damage the tissue.

    There is some information supporting the use of lemon balm, but the information available on Lysine and GSE controlling herpes is extensive.

    Avoid taking L-arginine supplements or foods rich in L-arginine because it feeds and supports the herpes virus.

    You can google herpes and any of these products and find plenty of different links you can investigate.

    Good Luck. Cold sores really suck and they are incredibly painful.

  • Where to buy Young Coconuts in bulk?

    RAWKIDCHEF - Thanks for the link. That price is closer to being palatable, although the world is out of control when you have to spend $7-8 for an uncontaminated coconut.

  • carrot juice stains

    I don’t think the stain indicates the presence of bacteria. I recently bought a Lexen juicer, which has a regular and wheat juice auger. The one for regular fruits/veggies is orange and the one for wheatgrass is green. I remembered fighting with the stains on my Omega and thought coloring the augers was really a smart idea.

  • best type of dehydrator???

    Saraw – I would suggest you do some research and reconsider your decision to purchase an Excaliber dehydrator. Excaliber has done a wonderful job marketing their product to raw foodists. Those we consider our raw food gurus promote their products and make money doing so. We steadily, and often without question, believe in and follow their recommendations. For this reason, I would bet the majority of raw foodists that own dehydrators have Exclibers. However, based on what I have read, I believe Excaliber dehydrators are very dangerous to human health. But for the way they market their product, I suspect the raw food community would have otherwise revolted against Excaliber dehydrators.

    More and more, people are demanding their governments pay attention to the scientific evidence behind plasticizers like polycarbonate and phalates. Polycarbonate is a dangerous material that has become unavoidable due to its widespread use. Polycarbonate contains a chemical called Bisphenol A (BPA) which is an endocrine disrupter and zeno-estrogen. BPA is very dangerous and this is not in dispute. There is plenty of information about it on the web. Polycarbonate leaches BPA when it comes in contact with liquid (like moist food). It does so even more when heated. I read one study where a humane society tested animals housed in polycarbonate cages that tested positive for BPA after a few weeks from just sleeping in the cages at night.

    The Excaliber dehydrator is made almost entirely of polycarbonate. You are going to be putting moist food in it and heating it for extended periods. I can’t imagine what else you could be doing to increase the liklihood that BPA will transfer to your food,your family and yourself.

    There is a much safer option for dehydrating food: stainless steel. These dehydrators are primarily marketed to meat eaters and hunters who want to make their own beef jerky and sausage. A very different crowd who I suspect need the durability of stainless steel given the fat drippings they deal with. Also, stainless steel has a more “manly” and durable appearance, making it more appealing to hunters.

    With everything I have read, the best bets we have for keeping our food and water products safe is to use glass, ceramics, and stainless steel. I looked around for a good price and finally purchased a stainless steel dehydrator on ebay using Buy It Now. I paid a fair price for it and it has performed wonderfully. I suspect the overwhelming majority of raw foodists that have dehydrators puchased Excalibers, love them, and recommend them to others without realizing their toxic impact.

    One last thing to consider: teflex sheets. I can see why these are very popular and are widely used. They too are made from plasticizers. With a stainless steel dehydrator you have the option of teflex trays, chrome trays, and stainless steel trays. I chose the stainless steel trays for the reasons mentioned herein. These trays have a 1/2” grid that doesn’t allow you to do much more than dehydrate fruits and vegetables. Whenever I make breads, crackers, etc., I use parchment or wax paper over the stainless steel grid tray. To the best of my knowledge, this is the most non-toxic alternative I have found.

  • Body Odor - Detox?

    I too have had really funky body odor. It smelled like concentrated french onion soup with garlic. Could have been all the garlic and onions I ate, which I did not realize were toxic until I read a thread here,

    Anyway, I read on another thread here about using fresh lemons as deodorant. I tried it and the funk was gone. Abracadabra! Sometimes it was irritating so I just starting topping it off every day with a bit of cornstarch. Now I don’t have any irritation problems.

    I bought one of those dispenser for shaking out flour. It is small and has a nice handle on it. Then I went to the fabric store and bought a 1/8 yard of fake fur that had an open weave underneath and hot glued the edges to the outer top of the flour shaker. Instant underarm-corstarch dispenser. I just hold it up and brush it over the underarm after applying the lemon. For me, this has worked better than any deodorant ever. Now I keep a 1/2 lemon in the egg compartment of my fridge just for deodorant purposes. Try it, you might like it.
