Now I have been FREE of Scabies for over 2 years. DE is also extremely effective for bedbugs, sprinkle it into the bedding.

    DE is well known for killing parasites in the gut. DO NOT use DE for swimming pools. It MUST be FOOD grade. Pet owners use it to kill worms, fleas & ticks in their dogs.

    DE does not easily create dust. Consider it to be more like salt. It falls directly down out of the container without creating a dust cloud. I used a salt shaker to sprinkle DE into the bedding, and there was no dust at all. However, if you are careless with it, you can create dust. With reasonable care, there are no problems with dust. I also sprinkled DE into the couch & chairs using a salt shaker, again with no problems.

    Another strategy I used was to mix DE with alcohol to spray the keyboard, PC Screen, & car upholstery. So anywhere I went, there was DE to greet the little monsters. No dust problems here.

    I have not started the cold bath protocol yet, but I have noticed (as I finally start to feel a little better...) that I am HOT now. No coat in the middle of the Northeast Winter, slept in itty bitty shorts and a sports bra last night with a light sheet instead of under flannel sheets, electric blanket, and down comforter. I keep having to turn the heat down - and we only keep it around 63 as is! I definitely think that the ice/cold baths will be another awesome step in super HAWT rockstar direction for me.

    Plus mad energy today - I actually got to school/class/daycare on time instead of my normal 10-15 minutes late. Didn't jump right out of bed, but did get up only 15 minutes after my alarm instead of 30.

    I love the wacky craziness of this thread. It means I am not alone

    Love the idea from before about getting settled in the tub, then letting the water fill up. Will try this. Used 100% of my full body strength contorting and propping self up in water initially until I got used to it.

    About a separate thread...I used to get irritated by all the "off" topics, but realized only later when I got a better handle on what might be going on, and what the scope of all this stuff was, that I ended up going back and reading what I had previously skimmed. I am late to the party, and was more plot driven "I want to see these people's results" at the beginning. Now I am in it knee deep and realize what value there can be in the more off topics, which I feel are actually on topic....If you are restless to get more specifics on one aspect, just skim over some stuff, and then get to what is more applicable. It is all here for later as needed. But I say --for a broken body, hit it up from all angles. Cold stuff seems to be a nice built in back door to the good stuff...and fast, try it!

    Cool!! Try it, you will like it. I drank the fermented koolaid, and am totally on board. But I guess we wouldn't be here if it didn't work like crazy.

    I do skim, but end up missing the posts where someone answered a previous comment, etc. For example, someone said placement of ice packs are where there is large concentrations of brown fat, and then someone corrected them, and I went round and round trying to find the follow up to why or where or what. I'm not complaining, just making an organization suggestion. I agree hitting it from all angles is great, but how many angles can there be? It's hard to tell when every 3rd post is in response to a post from a week ago for a discussion that's since born 3 more child threads within the same. I'll do my best, but I've held off asking questions for fear when I do my head will get bitten off because it was already addressed in the thread. Can't figure out how to sort my search results by date I guess either.

    It is totally confusing, I agree. But ask away, everyone here seems to like answering if they know the answer...Keeping up with this thread is a full time job!

Some how I have to get him to see that spending this $ now is an investment in his future health! Though last night when I told him I got my last test results in and told him what was going on - he got all grossed out fwiw and when I asked him - if he thought the $ I spent on the test was worth while - he hesitated - then I reminded him of those parasite shows he used to watch on animal planet - and then he was like - um yeah I guess it was a good thing to spend that money...but why can't these tests be covered by insurance... *face palm* you know some times I wonder if my GOP card carrying husband realizes the *Shit* that comes out of his mouth... he sounded like a freaking socialist w/that comment. I looked at him and told him point blank this is the way health care is going...wake up. If you want to feel good, you're going to have to pay out of pocket to get there. manged care will not fix you, they will just shove drugs at you, tell you to come back and give you more drugs

    then I asked him if he wanted to teach his son how to wrestle in the next 7yrs? he said yes - we'll you've got to figure out how you're going to get there...b/c the path your on isn't going to get you there... Chiro was shocked how effed up his lower back was, and is sending him back for a full spinal MRI - Chriro told me at 42 he has the spine of a 78yo! Jack - when we get back from our trip, I'm getting him in for his next MRI, then having the neurosurgeon here in DC send you a referral for DH... he needs a serious ass kicking... and you're just the man to do it...
    +1 on the DH and your thoughts about drugs. I have the same problem with my DH. He "knows" what he is doing to himself. He has learned a ton from me and still won't change a thing. You can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink!
    Shijin, I hope you have a blast on your trip and congrats on the doc.

    Perhaps this is why my new doc says to get off the iodine. She said I would have to take it forever if I continue. Seafood and seaweed it is.

    Why do I want this cold so much? Why the sudden change today?
    So you who have taken cold baths, you don't find it excruciating? I'm envisioning it as utter misery wher eyou just grit your teeth in icy pain for horrible minute after horrible minute ... or at least, I was ... I can actually picture it now, I think, w/o utter misery ...
    I'm going around my house in a t-shirt and lightweight skirt at 68 degrees, overcast, rainy. Perfectly comfortable. Weird!
    Ok, you are convincing me more and more. It's hard cuz I am cold all of the time and my toes are froze at home fully dressed. But, I'm sure my adrenals are tanked and if this will kick start them then I will do what I have to.

    Has anybody researched the no stevia? I don't use much but I like a small amount in my am coffee.

    I'll swim in frozen lakes if it means making it stay!!
    Ok, more convincing. Please keep posting your success.

    I spoke with the new doc and have decided to keep her for now. She is serious about finding out exactly what's wrong. I now also understand why she removed the progesterone, etc. She is pretty sure it is my adrenals (tanked) and if I take anything that is a precursor to cortisol, the test won't be accurate. She is having me do the test this month instead of next due to my fatigue. She cannot treat me if she doesn't have accurate results and that to me was a good sign. In the mean time, I will start doing cold baths and reread the adrenal fatigue blog.

    I am also wondering if I have candida die-off from the caprystatin. I am peeing more often than normal and getting up at night to as well. When my diet is clean I rarely have to go day or night; it is squeaky clean so something has changed. I am also having small headaches and a little bit of nausea going on. Tonight I am going to see if I can get the oil of oregano and kyolic garlic. Gonna do everything I can to kill this crap.

    So Jan you were right, Pregnenolone is in the toilet at 25. I think my nutricology order came in today. Tomorrow I will test it out.

    Isn't that the truth! Just reading it is a job and the overtime is putting into action all the ideas. Phew! I love it!

    I take well over 100MG of iodine a day. I take 100MG of iodoral and 30MG of lugols and I'm still ramping up. The thinking there is that the lugols will work in the stomach and the iodoral passes through to the intestines from a direct contact perspective. I detoxed HARD but I shrunk my thyroid nodules by at least 90% within two weeks (well, my goiter shrunk by 90%, haven't ultrasounded the nodules). It also made my hemorrhoids disappear! I LOVE the stuff. I also don't think you can really take too much because what isn't used is just secreted in the urine. Now, is that good long term, probably not BUT I wouldn't think 50MG would put you anywhere near that level anyway. Plus I take the companion nutrients and lots of SALT! It has made a world of difference for me although I have light years to go in order to be optimal. Iodine was simply the first step.

    Here is a great pdf from the iodine group on Yahoo
    The Guide to Supplementing with Iodine PDF

    Blessings.

    JDW,
    I want to thank you for sharing your experience & your links with us. I consider your message to be so valuable that I copied it to our IODINE THREAD for everyone to see. I had no idea a person could take so much iodine and still survive. Can I assume you are taking this much iodine under a doctors care?

    Can you join us at the Iodine Thread to share some of your expertise & wisdom re iodine?

    Grizz
