Ted has clearly explained the toxicity of borax, and the lazy people like Fred, and mitewarrior77 who can't be bothered actually using the net to check their incorrect assumptions before posting are time wasters and not worth bothering with. The toxicity of borax is actually much less than table salt. There is a wonderful thing called a msds (material safety data sheet) that is published by various official sites and is easily obtainable for free.<quoted text>
Hmmm doesn't the guy on earth clinic also drink Borax? Ted? I would think he has researched it enough to know if it is safe or works or not.
For those of you who didn't read all Ted had to say, you may have missed his articles on potassium permangenate or Condy's crystals.(see the msds before you scream toxic poison please.)
Condy's was around long before the pharmaceutical companies discovered cortisone. It used to be the only cure for scabies, but then permethrin and others were patented and so the gravy train began.
This can be found here if Ted seems a bit too radical for you.
So thanks to Ted here is my winning solution. Take the borax internally. Make up the borax peroxide solution and cover your bed, couch, cars eat, steering wheel, work chair, mouse, keyboard etc etc. Anywhere you touch. Now the actual regime. Bath once a day for at least 20 mins in a potassium permangenate solution. I used six level teaspoons to a full bath (470l) of fairly hot water. I rinsed and washed afterwards. Shower in the morning, bath at night. clean clothes twice a day clean sheets every day for at least two weeks. Wash everything with two tablespoons of borax in with the laundry detergent. Get an oxygen action laundry detergent to eliminate the need to add h2o2 to it.
I am free of any skin irritation now for two years. HOWEVER, I have reduced my consumption of sugar down to one piece of fruit and two teaspoons of honey a day. Thats it, my total sugar intake. No grains either. Wheat makes me itchy.
