Thanks proto.. wouldn't it just be amazing if $20 and a bit of time and patience is all it takes....
I'm hesitant to try it - chicken I guess but for a different reason at the moment. I do however want to take a moment to bring something up - since there's a lot of smart folks on here and a lot of interest in this thread and your progress. More to counterbalance and caution some.. and really just to bring some thought in people's minds before they go downing this stuff hardcore.
First a story of someone I know quite well now that took WOO:
I have a good friend now (He's only 22 years old) - who ingested a Ton of WOO for a cold - strep throat or something, I forget exactly, not important. Anyway, his "MOM" told him to go to the health store and try it as he was away for college. So he did, but decided if a little is good, more would be better. He took about
10X the recommended dose if not more. about
a week or two later he was in the hospital and now has an official diagnosis via colonoscopy of Crohn's... So his adventure with his "mom's" home remedy landed him with perhaps a life long condition... I wouldn't wish this to happen to anyone.
I can ask him to tell his story on the board for those that may be interested.
These WOO and Oils are some seriously powerful $hit… On par with Vanco, penicillin etc. Intense. True antibiotics, not just natural safe remedies. Just want to say use caution. Sounds promising though as a treatment option.
My concern is about
what if all of a sudden we starting going this route en mass instead of traditional antibiotics? Can bacteria and fungus build up resistance to it just like traditional antibiotics? And if so then what? – and furthermore if we do this to ourselves what are we doing to the helpful bacteria in us? - WOO seems to have quite the effect on gram positive bacteria. Collateral damage OM calls it. I can’t see why NOT following through with a full treatment with WOO etc would not be the same as not following through with a full course of traditional antibiotics prescribed by doctors…. Or taking varying daily amounts or low dose daily would be any different than doing the very same with traditional antibiotics that everyone says is so bad - and proven bad... for many reasons.
It’s tempting as heck to try based on the forum posts – but makes me nervous for those doing so as an “experiment”. Much like antibiotics work at first for most and get rid of bleeding and so on, as soon as they are stopped this sometimes all returns sometimes never returns. I can’t see why this would be any different with WOO. I guess it’s more a waiting game to see what happens when people stop it for a period of time.
Just based on this line of thinking, I wondered if bacteria can build up resistance to constant low dose exposure to WOO. There's not much out there I could find on this but I did get this one. This would seem to indicate some bacteria can perhaps build up resistance… www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/22827568/
And this in turn has me concerned for those ummm.. playing with low dose and varying amounts and stopping and stating etc.
Again... I just want to tell people to think a little before diving in... make a decision based on the best information we can find. And don't overlook the potential downside.
I'm nervous some may do more damage than good...
So just please just think... hard... before jumping in.
