Meniere's Syndrome

What Holistic or Natural Approach I would Take if Diagnosed with Meniere's Syndrome


by Thomas Martin


Here is what I would do if diagnosed with Meniere's Syndrome:
 
  • Magnesium Chloride (spritz about 15 shots on skin and rub in with your inner forearm just before bed,
  • Lugol’s solution Iodine (a blend of iodine and potassium iodide), about 10 to 15 drops on my skin, rubbing it in with my forearm, daily. 
  • I will take Vitamin B12, in the form of Methylcobalamin, sublingually, 5 mgs, daily.
  • I will take 50 to 150 mgs of Zinc daily,
  • I will take Niacin, working up to 500 mgs daily, with a meal (starting at a lower dose and increasing it weekly), 
  • I will stop using all grocery store salt and instead use Himalayan Salt in my food, but I will not use a salt-restricted diet
  • I will take Vitamin D3 - 5,000 to 10,000 iu daily,
  • I will make fermented vegetables and eat about 1/3 cup daily.  My gut flora is likely out of balance,
  • For motion sickness issues, I will take 4 tablets of Kali Phos and let them melt under my tongue
  • I will not consume any caffeine,
  • I will eliminate all artificial sweeteners from my diet such as aspartame
  • Raw, Virgin, Cold-pressed Coconut Oil  - 2 tablespoons (or seven teaspoons) daily (work slowly up to this level as coconut oil also acts as a laxative)
  • I will eliminate all Sugar, Wheat, Corn and Soy from my diet

DISCLAIMER:  I am in no way recommending treatments or cures on this blog.  This blog is merely a compilation of what I have learned about a diet based, natural approach to health. I follow the steps I outline in my book Just Do This One Thing: A Guide To Chronic Good Health and know I will avoid almost every disease listed in this blog.  On the other hand, I needed a place to write steps for specific ailments as I came across them.  If you are looking for alternative therapies, I hope you can benefit from my research, especially if your doctor has told you "nothing more can be done for you."

Toenail and other Fungi

What Holistic or Natural Approach I Would Take If Diagnosed With Toenail or other Fungi Disorder


by Thomas Martin


This is another real-life problem for me.   I struggled with toenail fungus for about 14 years.  I tried all of the over the counter remedies but would not submit to the oral drug.  That drug has a nasty side effect of permanently damaging your liver, a risk I wasn't about to take.  

If you have toenail fungus, keep in mind you have fungus throughout your body.  It is best to address both simultaneously for the greatest level of success

So, here is what I did:L
  • Topical Treatment
    • Apply Oregano Oil, along with Raw, Virgin Coconut oil to the affected toenails each night (You may want to wear cotton socks over your feet while doing this).  You want to use oregano oil extracted specifically from oregano vulgae.    
  • Internal Treatment
    • For the first seven days, take two to three drops of the oregano oil in whichever beverage allows you to drink it.  The taste is quite pungent, so try water or even organic concord grape juice.  I added it to my vegetable/fruit smoothie.
    • Take zinc, 50 to 100 mgs daily
    • Eliminate the following foods from your diet for at least 30 to 60 days:
      • All sugar and sugar substitutes
      • All milk, with the exception of plain, organic yogurt
      • All alcohol
      • All wheat, corn and soy
      • Potatoes and White rice
    • To help support liver function:
      • Take silymarin (or Milk Thistle), three times daily
      • Upon rising in the morning (first thing, before any other food or drink), squeeze the juice of an organic lemon into a glass of room-temperature or slightly warm water and drink it.  Do not eat or drink anything else for about 30 minutes.
    • To aid in general health, removing of the fungi:

  It isn't essential you do all of these steps, but the more you do, the more likely the fungi will die.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

What Holistic or Natural Approach I Would Take If Diagnosed With Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)


by Thomas Martin



The first thing I would NOT do is take any anti-depressants.  They are of limited effectiveness and what small amount of good they do, the effects do not last longer than a month or two. I will re-read Dr. David Brownstein's book Drugs That Don't Work and Natural Therapies That Do! to fully understand why these drugs are not helpful.  They also can lead to suicide. 

I suspect that a lot of the problems with patients (especially military) with PTSD is that the number of vaccines they were given disrupted a good portion of their gut flora, which (like an autistic child) made it difficult for them to process their experiences.  This would be especially damaging to those soldiers exposed to combat. 

This regimen is designed to address my depression, restore the gut flora in my stomach, and eliminate neurotoxins entering my body.   

Here is what I will take:

  • 5,000 to 10,000 IU of Vitamin D3 (with meals)
  • 5,000 mgs of Niacin (Vitamin B3), starting at 500 mgs and increasing gradually (with meals)
  • I will make fermented vegetables and eat about 1/3 cup daily.  My gut flora is likely out of balance.  If, for some reason, I cannot tolerate eating fermented vegetables, I will take a variety of probiotic capsules.  I understand these are not as effective as eating the vegetables, but it is better than not doing this step at all.
  • I will take Cod Liver Oil daily,
  • I will take a good B-Complex supplement rich in Vitamins B1 and B6
  • I will take zinc (50 to 150 mgs) daily
  • I will take an Omega-7 Oil capsule daily, with meals,
  • I will take Chlorella tablets, 2 to 4, daily to help remove heavy metals that may still be in my body,
  • Likewise, I will take 5 grams of Vitamin C daily, for the same purpose,
  • I will apply 10 to 15 drops of Lugol's Solution iodine to my skin daily, rubbing it into my skin and letting it be absorbed by my body.  Not only will this help my thyroid work properly, it, like the prior two steps, help in my body being able to eliminate heavy metals. 


I will also drink my special morning tea blend of 16 ounces warm water (heated to about 115 degrees F), 2 teaspoons virgin, organic coconut oil, 1 teaspoons local, raw, organic honey, and the juice of 1 organic lemon (one-half the lemon if they are quite large). 

I will also eliminate the following toxins from my life:

Sodium Fluoride - find a toothpaste such as Desert Essence that is made without fluoride.  Also, buy a water filter, such as Berkeley, that filters out fluoride.

Aluminum - stop using antiperspirants.  I recommend a deodorant from Primal Pit Paste instead.  Do not use non-stick cookware or any cookware made with aluminum. 

Mercury - if you have any amalgam filings in your teeth, have them removed and replace with composite by a dentist especially trained in this procedure.   Do NOT take any further vaccines, including the flu shot as it contains a very high does of mercury AND aluminum which are both neurotoxins.

Tourette's Syndrome

What Holistic or Natural Approach I would Take if I was diagnosed with Tourette's Syndrome


by Thomas Martin



Here is what I would do if I was diagnosed with Tourette's Syndrome.   This definitely is not as easy as taking a pill, but the results are worth it.  First of all, I will not take any vaccines.  The levels of mercury and aluminum in all vaccines are so high (for example, 200 parts per billion of mercury is considered hazardous waste.  Vaccines, including the flu shot, often contain levels of 50,000 parts per billion.  The levels of aluminum are also dangerous).  Both are known neuro-toxins.  Regardless of how you feel about vaccines, the level of toxic metals in vaccines cannot be denied. 
 
I will begin by taking:
    • CoQ10 (ubiquinol form) - 600 mgs daily
    • Magnesium Chloride (spritz about 15 shots on skin and rub in with your inner forearm just before bed)
    • Lugol’s solution Iodine (a blend of iodine and potassium iodide), about 10 to 15 drops on my skin, rubbing it in with my forearm, daily. 
    • Coconut Oil  - 5 tablespoons daily (work slowly up to this level as coconut oil also acts as a laxative)
    • I will make fermented vegetables and eat about 1/2 cup daily.  My gut flora is likely out of balance. 
    • Vitamin D3 - 10,000 iu daily
    • Carnosine - 1,500 mgs daily
    • PQQ (Pyrroloquinoline) - 60 mgs daily
    • I will begin a juicing program, starting with one large glass of juice each day and increasing to two as my body detoxifies.  I will make my juice especially rich in green leafy vegetables such as kale and spinach.   I will follow the guidelines laid out in my book Just Do This One Thing: A Guide to  Chronic Good Health
    • Vitamin C - 5 grams daily
    • Vitamin B Complex - high potency with folic acid
    • I will eliminate all Wheat, Corn and Soy from my diet and eat no gluten.
    • I will take Cod Liver Oil daily,
  • I will take Methylcobalamin (Vitamin B12)   - 1 mg (1,000 mcgs)  also daily
  • I will take Creatine powder, 1/4 teas twice daily
  • I will eliminate any food marked "diet" or "lite."  Ensuring I get NO artificial sweeteners in my diet
  • I will eliminate MSG in my diet, checking food labels and asking restaurants in which I dine if they add this poison to their foods.


I will also eliminate the following toxins from my life:


Fluoride – buy and use a non-fluoridated toothpaste.  Tom’s of Maine makes several as does Desert Essence.  Fluoride is an industrial waste poison which has never been shown to reduce or prevent tooth decay.

Mercury – have all mercury amalgam fillings removed from your mouth by a dentist especially trained in this.   The amalgam bleed mercury into you system for decades following the implant.  Also avoid all vaccines (including flu shots) for they also contain mercury which is used as a preservative. 

Lead - check for lead warnings on bottles of balsamic vinegar.
Aluminum – Aluminum is most frequently found in antiperspirants.  Begin using a deodorant which does not contain aluminum.  I will consider products from Primal Pit Paste  Also get rid of all aluminum cooking pans as the aluminum leeches into the food as it cooks.

Cirrhosis and Hepatitis C

What Holistic or Natural Approach I would Take if I was Diagnosed with Cirrhosis or Hepatitis C.


by Thomas Martin
 

Here is what I would do if I was diagnosed with Chirrhosis:  
 
    • Every morning I will take an organic lemon, cut it in half and squeeze out the juice.  An entire lemon, if it is small and half of the lemon if it is large.   I will put that juice into water between 80 and 110 degrees F.   To that I will add about 2 teaspoons of organic, raw, cold-pressed coconut oil.  I will also add about 2 teaspoons of raw, organic honey.  I will drink this first in the morning on an empty stomach.  This will help detoxify my liver.
    • I will take Silymarin daily.  This Milk Thistle extract has been shown to be effective in healing the liver of alcoholic liver syndrome.  I will take 1 to 3 capsules daily.
    • The next thing I will do is start taking coffee enemas.  I will initially do one enema per day for about 2 weeks then cut back to four times per week.
    • I will begin a juicing program, starting with one large glass of juice each day and increasing to two as my body detoxifies.  I will make my juice especially rich in green leafy vegetables such as kale, spinach, and parsley.   I will follow the guidelines laid out in my book  Just Do This One Thing: A Guide to  Chronic Good Health
    • I will begin applying castor oil packs to my skin above my liver.
 

I will also eliminate the following toxins from my life:

Fluoride – buy and use a non-fluoridated toothpaste.  Tom’s of Maine makes several.  Fluoride is an industrial waste poison which has never been shown to reduce or prevent tooth decay.
Mercury – have all mercury amalgam fillings removed from your mouth by a dentist especially trained in this.   The amalgam bleed mercury into you system for decades following the implant.  Also avoid all vaccines (including flu shots) for they also contain mercury which is used as a preservative.

Autism & Aspergers

What Holistic or Natural Approach I would Take if My Child was Diagnosed with Autism or Aspergers

by Thomas Martin



Here is what I would do if my child was diagnosed with Autism or Aspergers.   These steps have been proven effective in minimizing the effects of both syndromes.  This definitely is not as easy as taking a pill, but the results are worth it.  First of all, I will not give my child any vaccines.  The levels of mercury and aluminum in all vaccines are so high (for example, 200 parts per billion of mercury is considered hazardous waste.  Vaccines often contain levels of 50,000 parts per billion.  The levels of aluminum are also dangerous).  Both are known neuro-toxins.  Regardless of how you feel about vaccines, the level of toxic metals in vaccines cannot be denied.  If I decided to go forward with vaccines, I would never allow more than one vaccine to be given at a time.  There would have to be at least a period of one month between each vaccine. 


The very first thing I will do for my child is to
    • I will make fermented vegetables and feed my child about 1/3 cup daily.  My child's gut flora is likely out of balance. 

    •  I will add Cod Liver Oil, daily to my child's diet.  The sooner you start your child on this protocol, the more effective it will be. 

    • I will give my child no sugar
    • I will begin a juicing program, starting with one large glass of juice each day and increasing to two as my body detoxifies.  I will make my juice especially rich in green leafy vegetables such as kale and spinach.   I will follow the guidelines laid out in my book Just Do This One Thing: A Guide to  Chronic Good Health
    • I will eliminate all Wheat, Corn and Soy from my child's diet and eat no gluten.
    • I will add virgin, organic, cold-pressed coconut oil, about 2 ounces, to my child's diet daily.

I will also eliminate the following toxins from my child's life:

Fluoride – buy and use a non-fluoridated toothpaste.  Tom’s of Maine and Desert Essence make several.  Fluoride is an industrial waste poison which has never been shown to reduce or prevent tooth decay.
