This Surprising Cure for Skin Irritations Also Cures Toenail Fungus

 

Here’s a remedy that everyone should have in their home. It is so versatile. I have been prescribing it for years for all kinds of skin conditions. It helps everything from insect bites to skin pigments to wrinkles.

 

I’m talking about ozonated olive oil. Now a new study shows that it works for one of the most obnoxious skin problems out there — onychomycosis.

 

Now if you don’t know what onychomycosis is, don’t feel too bad. Most people know it simply as toenail fungus. But no matter what you call it, this is one of those skin disorders that bugs people the most. It’s unsightly. It makes it hard to trim the nails. And it’s incredibly difficult to get rid of. The conventional treatment is to use antifungal drugs like ketoconazole. But often these drugs can be toxic and expensive, and frequently they don’t work. This new study shows that ozonated olive oil works much better than even ketoconazole.

 

The researchers studied no less than 400 patients with onychomycosis. They treated half of them with ozonated olive oil twice a day. They treated the other half with ketoconazole cream 2%. The study went on for three months. They considered a patient cured when the nails regained the normal color, growth, and thickness, and also had a negative fungus culture. Compared to the ketoconazole group, the ozone group responded better and faster.

 

The ozone group saw positive changes within one month while the ketoconazole group took three months to see significant changes. And 95% of the ozonated oil patients were cured while only 13.5% of the ketoconazole group could make that claim. But it gets even better. After one year, only 2.8% of the ozonated oil folks had a recurrence compared to 44.4% of the drug group. And here’s the best part.

 

Ozonated olive oil is safe, inexpensive, keeps forever, and is effective for all kinds of skin disorders. Every home should have it available. You can order it by calling toll-free 877-543-3398. If you have any kind of irritation of the skin from a rash to an infection to an insect bite, it can help. So before you run right down to the dermatologist, just apply some of the oil two to three times per day. In all likelihood, you will save yourself the trip.

Ozonated olive oil is made by bubbling up ozone through olive oil. Through the process, the olive oil picks up the ozone and various naturally occurring peroxides are formed. It is these peroxides that are toxic to bacteria and fungi while at the same time stimulating the body’s own natural healing responses.

Ginger vs. Sumatriptan for Common Migraine

 

July 6th, 2014 by 

 

Migraine headaches are one of the most common causes of pain and can vary from a minimal impact on activities of daily living to even incapacitating. Numerous over the counter and prescription drugs exist for acute migraine headaches but problems abound with poor satisfaction in many cases and varied side effects in others. In addition, some migraine sufferers have very frequent chronic and recurrent attacks, necessitating the frequent use of some of these acute intervention drugs and thus again, side effects can become an issue. An effective herbal intervention for acute pain relief would be a welcome addition to the list of options.

 

This double-blind randomized controlled clinical trial compared the efficacy of ginger to sumatriptan, a standard conventional prescription treatment, in the treatment of common migraine. Study subjects were randomly delivered either one ginger capsule of 250 mg upon onset of headache or 50 mg of sumatriptan. Questionnaires were completed for each headache attack, recording time of headache onset, severity, timing of drug taking and response self-assessments at 30, 60, 90 and 120 minutes and 24 hours. Any adverse effects were also recorded. The overall study duration was one month.

 

One hundred sufferers of common migraine headaches, from a Hospital in Iran were the study subjects. The average age of participants was 35.1 in the sumatriptan group and 33.9 in the ginger group. Women comprised 68% of the sumatriptan group vs. 74% of the ginger group. The average duration of a migraine diagnosis was similar in both groups at approximately 7 years. The average number of headache attacks in the sumatriptan groups were 5.8 and 4.9 in the ginger treated group. Inclusion criteria for the study included a confirmed diagnosis of migraine without aura by a neurologist, 18 years and older, high school diploma or higher and a frequency of 2 to 10 headaches/month.

 

Both sumatriptan and ginger powder decreased the mean severity of common migraine attacks within 2 hours of use. No significant difference existed between the two treatments. Before taking the medication, 22% of the sumatriptan group and 20% of the ginger group had severe headaches. The mean headache severity at 2 hours after sumatriptan or ginger use demonstrated similar effectiveness for both groups. There was 4.7 unit reduction in the headache severity in the sumatriptan group and a 4.6 reduction in the ginger group. Favorable relief was achieved in 70% of the sumatriptan treated headache individuals and 64% of the ginger treated patients at 2 hours following intake. Both the sumatriptan and ginger significantly provided pain relief and no significant differences were achieved.

 

There were more side effects from sumatriptan using including dizziness, sedation, vertigo and heartburn. The only clinical adverse effect of ginger was dyspepsia.

 

Commentary: 

 

Ginger products have a long tradition of use for joint pain, nausea and vomiting, motion sickness, lipid lowering and a broad range of anti-inflammatory implications. For migraines, a previous study in 2005 demonstrated that ginger completely alleviated migraine headache in 48% of individuals and partially in 34% of individuals within 2 hours. Another study demonstrated that the ginger treated group had a higher pain relief rate at 65% for ginger versus 36% for the placebo.

 

I am quite impressed that the current study reveals both sumatriptan at 50 mg and ginger powder at 250 mg decreased the mean severity of a common migraine attack and within 2 hours of use. Pain relief and patient satisfaction did not show any significant difference, although side effects due to ginger were far less than those with sumatriptan.

In my experience, the natural medicine strategies for reducing the frequency and severity and duration of migraines are quite effective and include basic lifestyle and nutritional plans, but more robustly involve a multi-factorial approach using riboflavin, ginger, feverfew, 5-HTP, butterbur, magnesium, CoQ10, and sometimes cyclic estrogen patches in women with menstrual migraines. I have never felt very optimistic about acute intervention with these supplements or others in reducing the severity of an acute migraine. I am encouraged by this study, that acute use of ginger capsules for acute migraines may provide pain reduction, with an overall 44% palliation in all headache attacks within 2 hours.

Nick's comment:  I have treated many people with severe migraines and after several treatments they are significantly reduced or eliminated completely. The main culprit besides either a short leg or short pelvis is a trigger point in the lower trapezius that initiates the migraine process.  Once lifts are used to correct the short anatomy the trigger point is eliminated and then... no more headaches.  I had migraines since I was in elementary school and have used lifts and had the trigger point treated,  I haven't had any kind of headache for 15+ years.
