Alternative Therapies :: Coconut Oil Pulling For Treating Allergies?

Mar 2, 2016

I was wondering if anyone here has ever tried oil pulling for treating allergies? Also, I was wondering how effective it is for treating allergies?  A woman at my local health food store suggested I try it, instead of using OTC allergy medications.  I've been taking 2 Coconut Oil softgels daily, plus my usual dose of antihistamines.  I love the coconut oil because of the boost it gives me, but would really like to get away from the antihistamines because it drops my energy level, basically I want to replace the allergy meds...

Alternative Therapies :: MRI Diagnosed A Bone Bruise

I hit my inner ankle bone against the bed post 3+ months ago and the MRI diagnosed a bone bruise. I have consulted podiatrists and orthopedic doctors and their advice for treatment is conflicting, but generally of the conclusion that there is no treatment, nor any idea how long it will take to heal. I am still limping and in strong pain all day long every day. One doc says to stay off the foot. One says to exercise mildly. One says to do PT exercises. One says to immobilize in a pneumatic walking boot, one says to use an ankle brace. all have been unsuccessful. Has anyone recovered from a bone bruise? If so, did you use alternative medicine like Chinese herb soaks?

Alternative Therapies :: The Device Reads Energy And Vibrations

I went today to a doctors appointment, he placed a headband on me hooked to a device. The device was then hooked to a computer, he said the device reads my energy and my vibrations. He said he detected many things. Like an allergy I did not know I had to bread. He also said I had blood in my urine. Also, he said that I consumed too much sugar, which I found strange since I drink mostly water and eat very healthy to my knowledge. After he was done with the test, he placed some pills, with no information on the bottle, on top of the device. He claimed that the device gave frequency from the reading in his computer into the pills, and that the pills will now work with the problems I had. I know about the placebo effect.

Alternative Therapies :: Constant Headache / Dizziness And Nausea

I am mildly overweight, have low end of normal blood pressure.  I exercise approximately 5 days a week and walk about 1.5-3 miles a day during work hours --otherwise I have a desk job. I eat primarily whole grains and foods, whole goats milk, and only drink 1-2 times a week and typically not heavily.

I've had a constant headache since September 20, 2015. It started in the middle of the night and increased in severity throughout that month. The pain is at the front of my head varies from a 2-9 typically getting worse throughout the day and into the evening.  Other symptoms include dizziness and nausea, lightheadedness-- sometimes extreme and debilitating.

After 1 month, I went to the doctor who had a MRI done, several blood tests, a nerve block, a hospital DHE treatment, every painkiller and triptan/migraine drug in the book. I went on a course of Phenergan and diclofenac, and also had IV antibiotic in the hospital. I started taking magnesium supplements. I assessed the stressful elements of my life (at home and at work), began meditating, and lowered my overall stress. I did yoga and stretched did neck exercises which both reduced some of the pain. Nothing worked, and they recommended Topamax, but as nothing made a dent before, I decided to question their diagnosis of intractable migraine.

Since then, I had my Nexplanon implant removed (received it July 11th, 2015, removed it November 22, 2015). And started acupuncture. The acupuncture achieved some considerable relief, but after a month of treatment twice a week, I went on a business trip and took charcoal several times during the trip to work with a hangover (I don't drink much). During the end of the trip and the 5 days following it, I didn't have a headache. At the time, I concluded that the acupuncture had worked.

After the headache returned, I started to go through possibilities and took myself off of gluten. After a week, no change in headache. Then I started taking charcoal again after a eureka moment and then went 2 weeks without a headache. Yesterday I forgot to take my charcoal for 28 hours and my headache returned. I'm back on the stuff, and now feel like I'm narrowing in on finding the culprit!

Alternative Therapies :: Photophobia / Light Sensitivity - Actually Able To Walk Around Outside

I have had extremely bad photophobia for the last 3 yrs (sunglasses in house etc), which started after having my eyes dilated 4 times. I don't have any eye disease.  However 3 days ago I bought a herb (which i read about on the internet), called qi ju di huang wan. They are tiny little black pills and you take 30 a day. And I am actually able to walk around outside now without my sunglasses even in the sun!!!! (still best to wear em though).

Alternative Therapies :: Probiotics Claim They Reduce High Blood Pressure

I have this problem-  I have bowl movement and then I have to lay down on bed, and massage all over my head for 10 minutes.  When I take probiotics, this feeling gets worse.  I do take olonzapine for sleep and have been on several anti-depressants before.  This annoying thing began happening summer of 2009 and is not healing by itself.  I do suffer from constipation time to time and sometimes it is chronic.  I discussed this issue with my GP and she doesn't know what's going on.  She says take fiber supplements for constiaption like Metamucil, but they make me worse.  

I have not had bowl movement for 2 days now.  I discussed my resting after bowl movement with someone not a doctor and he said that it maybe little high blood pressure and it goes down after bowl movement.  

Also does probiotic supplements increase or decrease blood pressure.  Probiotics claim they reduce high blood pressure.  I am getting mixed information from what I have searched on web. says it can also increase chances of sepis- blood infection and diverticulitis.  I don't know if this is true.

On some probiotic supplement, like Udo's, I think, not sure that probiotics can increase blood pressure.  When I take these I have to rest more and massage more after having bowl movement.

Yeast Infection :: Coconut Oil To Cure?

Has anyone had success with this? I am 42 and have been having recurring yeast infections for the past 6 months, right after my ovulation, no idea why they keep coming back. I'm thinking hormones must be out of whack. I've never had one before, ever, and I take all the usual precautions to prevent them, but they come back month after month at the same time. Thankfully, diflucan seems to cure them as I get them. Anyway, I was wondering about applying coconut oil to my vagina as a cure. I already use it on my vulva to help alleviate the irritation and itch.

Lichen Sclerosus :: Yeast Infections And Coconut Oil?

I have now seen a proper specialist for first time.  She advises two week break from clob while we zap a yeast/fungal infection with an oral treatment called itraconazole. [And then 6 weeks of daily clob.]  I didn't ask her whether it was ok to still use coconut oil or similar and have this slight worry that it might somehow feed the infection!?!?  But don't want to forego the comfort unnecessarily.

Pityriasis Rosea :: Use Coconut Oil, Myrrh And Small Tanning Sessions

First started with a small path on my upper arm which just got bigger each day. Then some small patches started appearing on my collarbone and on my tummy. Went to the doctors and they weren’t sure what it was initially and gave me steroid cream. Three days later I felt awful and the rash was beginning to appear elsewhere and the original spots were getting larger. I went back to the doctors and she knew straight away it was PR. This was great as at least I knew what I had and I could research a bit on it. Unfortunately no-one seems to know that much about it!

In the space if a week I had loads more spots come up, all over my back, my front and along my scalp. I have to say that I really didn’t feel well at the beginning stages. I felt exhausted, had a huge loss of appetite, very emotional and just wasn’t myself. I looked pale, tired and my hair felt in awful condition. I decided to read some forums on other peoples experiences and picked up some suggestions on how to get rid of PR quickly!

For just under a week, I have done the following:

– Used Head & Shoulders as a shower cream and E45 Bath Oil in the bath.

– After each shower or bath, applied pure coconut oil all over my body and face.

– Before bed, I apply Myrrah Essential Oil (diluted in a carrier oil) all over my body and face.

– Had three tanning sessions of 6 minutes each.

– Plenty of sleep!

Using the above regime has improved my skin SO much. I can’t believe what an improvement has been made within this short amount of time, and I was literally covered in spots on my back, front and scalp. Most of my spots have faded, dried up and I look and feel so much better. I have some spots on my neck and collarbone which are the freshest ones, but using the above regime I expect them to get better very soon.

I would really recommend to all of you to use Coconut Oil, Myrrh and small tanning sessions. I really believe these have speeded up PR for me and I believe I will not have much left in a week's time. I have used E45 moisturising cream too when needed.

Lichen Sclerosus :: How To Use Aloe Vera Gel, Coconut Oil, Witch Hazel

I have been diagnosed with LS in February this year, although looking back now with more information at hand, I have been suffering from this for nearly five years, but had always been misdiagnosed. I cannot begin to mention all the vaginal creams and tablets that I have been prescribed.. all to no avail until the biopsies were done. I am now using Dermovate and was using it only when needed, until I watched Dr Goldstein's webinar a few days ago. I picked the link up from this forum. Since then I use it everyday, after soaking for 15 minutes in warm water and then rubbing in the ointment for 90 seconds. In May of this year I was also diagnosed with Lichen Planus. I follow the same procedure with the LP but I do not seem to have as much success here. Patches still coming out all over especially in groin, thighs right down to knees, underarms, under the girl, arms etc. Is there anyone who is using something other that Dermovate for LP and with what success rate? I see on this forum that numerous mention is made of coconut oil, witch hazel and aloe vera gel. I have managed to get hold of coconut oil and 97% aloe vera gel. Is the 97% good enough? In what form does the witch hazel come... is it an essential oil? I have looked around but have not found manuka honey yet. Does anyone in RSA know where I can find this? Then lastly, how do I use the above.. do I mix them all together and put on (how many times a day?) and what is it for? Does it help the itch, scarring, LS itself??? Quite new to this so not sure how to use these.

(Age 18-24) Pregnancy :: Spasm And Cramp With Pulling In My Right Lower Back?

I am 8 weeks pregnant tomorrow, yay! I had 2 miscarriages last year and this would be my first baby so every little thing is making me panic slightly! I had an internal scan at 7 weeks and we saw a little jellybean with a heart beating it was amazing! Sonographer was very happy with how everything looked so that took a weight off my shoulders.

However for the past 2 days I have been getting these slight cramps/muscle spams in my right Lower back.. I'm not sure if it's where I sit at a computer all day or where I've been driving or maybe even slept funny but it's starting to worry me. It feels as though my muscle just along my waistline on my back is being pulled and stretched. It doesn't happen all the time just every now and then.

Lichen Sclerosus :: Fusing Labia - Coconut Oil / Baking Soda Helped

I have suffered for 33 years with this disease.  I am 76 yrs old. LS is an autoimmune disease and a health person told me for a true autoimmune

problem is that you had to have 3.  I have arthritis, Ls and thyroid.  Jus over a year ago I had to have the thyroid removed (cancer) . That is okay now. But listen to this, The unbearable constant burning itch has all but disappeared.  There is still some very mild discomfort around the anus.  The fusing was so complete that I lost the clitorus first and than the labia minora and the labia majora was starting to disappear.  But with the regular use of coconut oil and spraying after bathroom use with water and baking soda I now have rather normal looking labia and normal colour.  i was white, gray, purple and bumps. Only the clitorus has not been uncovered but sensation is still there.   I am just very slightly  white at the entrance to the vagina both front and back.  I wish i had Known about these treatments years ago.
