VINEGAR TREATMENT/BODY ACHE BATH TREATMENT

VINEGAR TREATMENT

Read directions carefully before beginning treatment

1/4 to 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar (5% acidity) white vinegar WILL NOT work.
Pan for top of stove (not aluminum) DO NOT MICROWAVE.
Washcloth or hand towel (it may stain from the vinegar)
Soft ice pack or bowl of ice water (package of frozen peas can replace soft ice pack)
Plastic wrap and heating pad (hot water bottle DOES NOT work well).

Turn on heating pad to LOWEST setting - DO NOT RAISE TEMPERATURE!
Heat vinegar until just starting to simmer.
Fold washcloth or hand towel lengthwise in thirds or to a size that will cover area to be treated.
Dip center of cloth in hot vinegar until completely absorbed.
Place hot compress, very briefly, on area to be treated (it will burn if left on too long).
Immediately apply ice pack (or dip in ice water for hands or elbows) for about 5 seconds.
Alternate hot compress and ice pack or ice water until you can leave the compress on area without discomfort.
Cover vinegar compress with plastic wrap (to protect heating pad from moisture).
Cover area with heating pad.
Leave covered for 1 hour.
Remove vinegar compress and apply ice pack or dip in ice water for about 20-25 seconds.

Repeat treatment for 7 days. You can miss a day and then go back and finish treatment if necessary. For treatment over 7 days - beginning on 8th day; mix 1/2 cup salt in 2 cups distilled or purified water, then use as follows: use a mixture of 1 part salt water and 2 parts vinegar to equal the 1/4 to 1/3 cup solution.

This can be use to treat tendonitis, bursitis, arthritis, shin splints, or bone spurs.

If you have bone spurs, on the 8th day start using the saltwater/vinegar mixture. After you remove the compress, use a "J" stroke to remove calcium away from the area. "J" stroke = starting at center of treated area and at top of "J" apply a medium pressure out to the hook in the "J". Repeat all around the area for about 1 minute after each treatment. Repeat compress and "J" stroke routine until all pain is gone.
BODY ACHE BATH TREATMENT

To relieve body aches caused by over exercise or general strain do the following:

Run a bath of warm water (enough to cover areas requiring relief) and add:1/2 cup Epsom salts and 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar (you can also add scented bath salts or bubble bath.
Soak in this bath for about 15 minutes. Any odor from the vinegar will disappear when it dries.

FLUORIDE

Research found in "Clinical Toxicology of Commercial Products"', 5th edition 1984, -lead has a toxicity rating of 3 which equals a moderate toxicity. Fluoride, more specifically sodium fluoride, the form of fluoride put into our water and toothpaste, has a toxicity rating of 4, which equals a very or high toxicity.

Warning labels on toothpaste, FDA mandates manufacturers using fluoride, "If you accidentally swallow more than used for brushing, seek professional help or contact a poison control center immediately.... They go on to say that consuming half of the tube your child loves the taste of can kill them.

Sodium and fluorosalicic acid fluoride are used in rat poison and insecticides. The only difference between rat poison and your toothpaste is the parts per million (ppm).

"U. S. Public Health Services" has stated that 50% of one's daily fluoride intake is eliminated, with the other 500,/0 being absorbed in calcified tissues such as the bone and teeth. They also state that fluoride makes the bones more brittle and the dental enamel more porous. Tragically, mottled teeth, also called dental fluorosis, affects 1 our of every 5 children in the U.S.

In the early part of the last century, fluoride was recognized as a dominant industrial pollutant. It was and still is a waste product from iron, steel, aluminum, copper, lead, and zinc manufacturing operations and is a by-product of fertilizer.

The promoters of toxic fluoride always state that fluoride is found in the earth and so it can't be harmful. Of course, they don't differentiate between their sodium fluoride and the natural, harmless calcium fluoride found in the earth.

In 1990, the "National Cancer Institute'" found and stated that commercial fluoride was carcinogenic. In 1992, they found a 6.9% increase in bone cancer was absolutely linked to fluoridated water. Other studies have revealed an increase in hip fractures, brain damage, osteoporosis, arthritis, and other abnormalities.

If you really want to know the history of fluoride, you should research I. G. Farben on the internet.
