210400 tn?1325384170 Oh, also, if you think it would be a good idea to clean the cut (if you can see where it is), something that works well and is not dangerous for your baby to get in her mouth is a solution of white vinegar and water. Just soak the spot or dab it on with cotton. It kills both viruses and bacteria, so that way you won't be at risk for an infection.
Avatar f tn ozone kills viruses bacteria and fungus so if there were anything it should have been destroyed by the ozone.
1399124 tn?1401023604 The heat kills the heat sensitive bacteria and viruses.
110491 tn?1274485537 Twenty minutes ago, I would have thought there would be no way hot flashes could kill cancer. But once again, I find myself needing to be a little more open-minded! Oddly enough, right before I read this post, I'd just finished reading an article on Yahoo News called "Chili's Heat Kills Prostate Cancer Cells". The article is from HealthDay News.
Avatar m tn hi guys im just a little bit confuse about what doctor said that boiling has no effect on stability of HCV outside the body but this article said heat have a drastic effect on HCV life so that means boiling can kill HCV ( http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2834657/ ) HCVcc in culture medium was found to survive 37°C and room temperature (RT, 25 ± 2°C) for 2 and 16 days, respectively, while the virus was relatively stable at 4°C without drastic loss of infectivity for at least 6 weeks.
1516249 tn?1423465385 Treatment should start by addressing the unresolved pathogenic heat. After the heat is resolved, treatment should then focus on correcting the root deficiency. Treatment Principles: Strengthen the spleen to supplement qi and promote the discharge of pus. Initially it starts with a lump either on top of eyelid (external stye) or inside of eyelid (Internal stye).
Avatar m tn Sepsis can lead to widespread inflammation and blood clotting. Inflammation may result in redness, heat, swelling, pain, and organ dysfunction or failure. Blood clotting during sepsis causes reduced blood flow to limbs and vital organs, and can lead to organ failure or gangrene (damage to tissues). "What causes sepsis? "Bacterial infections are the most common cause of sepsis. Sepsis can also be caused by fungal, parasitic, or viral infections.
Avatar m tn ...lemon... ...extra virgin... ..removing heavy metals... This sounds like a bad acid trip listening to Led Zepplin's "The Lemon Song". And brings new meaning to "Squeeze my lemon 'til the juice runs down my leg". What really kills HIV? Exposer to air. "Studies have proven time and time again that HIV does not survive well outside the body.
Avatar m tn Even if there were a small, theoretical possibility, laundry detergent instantaneously kills HSV (and virtually all other viruses). And I would guess the heat of a clothes drying also do so as well. 2) I'm sure nobody ever caught HSV by the sort of indirect contacts you describe here. Another fact about genital HSV-1 is that asymptomatic shedding of the virus is uncommon, especially after 20 years. Even your most intimate clothing probably is rarely if ever contaminated with HSV-1.
171768 tn?1324233699 Here in MN, it gets very cold in the winter and cold kills viruses. I think she had to leave them out there for 14 days. I looked and you live in NJ. Pretty sure it gets cold there too. Other than that I'm not sure how you would wash them. PS-my first daughter had RSV when she was 5 weeks old and spent a week in the hospital. She nearly died! She now has reactive airway disease due to the RSV. That is an awful virus!
Avatar n tn I think someone posted this before, be careful around fido! http://www.nytimes.com/2011/05/31/health/31hepatitis.html "Viral Outbreaks in Dogs Yield Clues on Origins of Hepatitis C" The researchers see three possibilities for the origin of the viruses. The least likely is that dogs acquired hepatitis C from humans. Another possibility is that dogs and humans both acquired the virus from an unknown animal. This is the sort of evolution that gave rise to the 2004 outbreak of SARS.
Avatar m tn My Igenex blot came back with 31, 34(ind), 38(ind), 39 (ind), 41+++, 58+++ How can I convince my primary? Everything I do to detox kills me.
Avatar m tn Turn on your shower as hot as is comfortable and jump in. The heat and the steam will loosen the mucus in your nose and nasal cavity. After a minute or so in the shower, press your right nostril closed with your right index finger, and very, very, very gently and slowly blow out the open left nostril, into your hands. Rinse the hands off, then close the left nostril with your left finger and blow out the open right nostril. Wash off your hands with soap.
127512 tn?1193745816 Water/chlorine/ pool acid kills germs along w/ dilution. If HIV pees in pool we don't all get HIV. Wonder if the pool would've emptied out if someone just spread a rumor? Your right, folks don't read well before the 'pounce'. I also don't think we're talking about a little kid. Why announce if didn't want people to know? Try to vacation your brain. This will pass.
233616 tn?1312790796 Turns out, it comes from HCV and HIV both…the body begins to retain and store lipids differently, it alters metabolism to try and fight the virus, and the virus adapts continually as well. Retro viruses are very smart critters and we need to avail ourselves of every new discovery if we are ever to defeat them. I agree, nothing can assure outcome, no adjunct is a guarantee. And no, I'm not a doctor, I was a physical therapist, I did work with doctors for 20 years and I did teach anatomy.
Avatar f tn The studies were designed to determine the safety and effect of the therapy produced by the Hemo-Modulator on Ribonucleic Acid (RNA) viruses. RNA viruses include, but are not limited to, HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis C, SARS, and West Nile. There was a significant, direct effect on inactivation of the virus in all the studies. In the SIV study there was more than 99% inactivation of the virus.
Avatar f tn Did they check you for hiv dna and rna pcr? Also an immuno blot for hiv would help. And HTLV. I looked for those two viruses quite extensively in me because of such symptoms and by blood and antibodies they were not able to find anything. Spinal fluid pcr or viral culture may show something else. But i never was approved for those tests. So the question is could all this hepatitis b do? Or is there another virus that is being over looked.
Avatar f tn I googled UBIT and it is FDA approved for many viruses. It's been around for years and it's pretty cheap.
Avatar f tn I usually get these chills down my spine, and it often spreads to my arms, legs, and chest. It ***** so much and it often kills my day. I have a feeling the symptoms have to do with a problem with our immune systems, in which our bodies produce extra antibodies and white blood cells to act like our body needs to fight off some sickness when we really don't have have one. Has anyone tried getting a blood test while experiencing the chills?
Avatar f tn also smothers their parents) 2) Add 4 or 5 drops of clove oil. (kills the eggs) 3) Add 3 or 4 drops of iodine. (kills the eggs) 4) Add a few drops of Neem oil. (kills the eggs) 5) cut open 6 or 8 capsules of garlic pills and squirt the contents into the mixture. 6) Mix it up into a nice paste. you should have enough to last you a day or so. 7) Apply to genital area and then slather onto your anus, working it in and pushing a bit up inside.
862235 tn?1336063895 This is not true for geno 3 which is a variant that makes the liver cells form their own fats - the virus uses the fats for the envelope of the envelope viruses. But inflammation is a fatty metabolism pathway called the arichidonic acid cycle, and the fats in fatty liver syndrome feed right into inflammation. Anyway, I ramble. It's always nice to meet someone who has taken responsibility for his program. Nice to talk with you!
Avatar m tn Filtered water isn't distilled, it's filtered, taking out some of the toxins, though not nearly all of them. Distilled water uses heat to basically boil out all the minerals -- that's why it's used in car batteries, for example, because it doesn't have the minerals drinking water has to clog up the works. But the body needs minerals, and you don't want to leach them out, which is what'll happen if you drink distilled water regularly.
Avatar f tn 'Autoimmune' means that your own immune system attacks your body by mistake, instead of attacking invading viruses and bacteria. Lyme, however, is caused by bacteria called Borrelia burgorferi (B. burgdorferi or Bb, for short). MedHelp has indicated it will fix this error in the website, but it could take a while for reasons I don't know. There is a possible reason that this error has been made: there is a split in the medical community over Lyme disease.
Avatar n tn For those who has been taking care of themselves, aches all of the body and numbness and tingling may be caused by a virus that decided to attack your nervous system. Viruses are tough to figure out. Try to stay away from foods that are not cooked and prepared outside your home like raw oysters and clams and salads. You never know if bacteria or viruses are lurking or if the person separating the lettuce leaves washed their hands after peeing. Don't stock up on vitamins.
Avatar n tn i immediatly thought the same thing...that the odor was trapped in your bra/clothing. i admittingly will use the same bra for DAYS. yes, i admit,i have smelled it to be sure it was ok to wear for 1 more day. i consider myself to be clean, clean , clean. so its not a matter of that. i think that sweat just tends to get trapped in the ole boobs and cause an odor. esp. if you are larger breasted. thats all.
Avatar m tn When VL is getting down reinfection decreases also ALT up means the immune system kills more infected cells. All this decreases the quantity of infected cells, and therefore decrease hbsag production. The problem is as the number of infected cells goes down the immune response goes down too, so it should come to another balance point but not clear completely.
233616 tn?1312790796 and insurances will have to pay for the routines tests AND for the cures now available, before the viruses have time to get any more resistant. Now that there is help, folks need to be diagnosed earlier and hence more will be saved.
Avatar n tn Sounds like everyone here could use a rundown of hpv and herpes- First of all, while condoms can CERTAINLY help to decrease your chances of contracting hpv or hsv (herpes), these stds are both viruses in the skin. The problem is that condoms do not cover all of the skin, so skin to skin contact still occurs even with proper use of a condom. A condom will decrease your chance of contracting hpv by 70% during intercourse with someone who has hpv.
