Consider angelica genus for fibroids and clotting issues. Sinensis species being notoriously beneficial for the uterous etc...


I keep bromelain in my stock, that helps to stop the stickiness of platelets. I also have aspirin in the medicine cabinet. One low dose can work wonders with clots, one 325 takes care of my headaches. Back years ago the standard aspirin was 100 mg. They recommended two, I used three and it was always plenty. I never even payed attention when they changed them to 325, taking two is too much at that amount for the majority of people. I think they are trying to cause problems by standardizing it at 325 and saying to take two. No wonder they say aspirin gives Reye's syndrome, that is ridiculous to take six hundred fifty mg at a time.

The most important thing you can do in my opinion is to get all advice and questions answered by the medical professionals treating them. If you're not happy with their current doctors, get second opinions, but stick with licensed medical professionals. The Internet is likely the worst place there is to get medical information or advice. If it's given, don't take it, it might just make matters worse.

Best wishes and I hope it all works out OK.

This is a result of vaccinating. You'll see

I agree with Blaine,
No one can diagnose your brother over the webs...let alone anyone on ATS.
All we can do is offer cues that perhaps you can look into and do your own research.
Use what ever you may find to bring up to his doctor to see if it's been ruled out etc..

I don't suppose he's been on any holidays lately to a tropical beach environment (ie, not Canada)?
I had a friend in high-school who was always beaten by his father. His mother was also a victim. Well, they finally saved enough to flee from the father and she took my friend on a tropical holiday to start a new life.

Well, towards the end of the holiday he got very ill. A week in hospital couldn't solve it. Sadly it was an autopsy that discovered he had a small cut under his foot from a toxic piece of coral.

Bacteria and infections can get in from the smallest of places, check his feet for any small wounds.


And even though the doctors didn't solve this case in time, please put their treatment suggestions first rather than online posters (including myself). They study for years to solve these things, trust in them and best of luck.

you do realize many of us plant proponents actually went to school for this in differing paradigms from allopathy...right? I was a licensed clinician for years.

Not that your advice is bad, but your overt mistrust of well meaning aid is perhaps over zealous.

Btw hows Alfie doing over in Liverpool now? Right hes dead.

Sorry to hear about your brother- I hope he has a quick and easy recovery. If you're brainstorming for ideas on what it could be, have you crossed tick-borne illnesses off the list? Hell, even mosquito bites. My roommate was bit by a mosquito on the coast in New England and ended up with Lyme. Nobody ever thought twice about the bite. We took him to the ER and they got him on antibiotics immediately; we didn't find out until a while after the visit that they did a blood test and it was positive for Lyme. I've also had Lyme, but those things can carry all sorts of other diseases. Also, did he go swimming recently? Could have gotten water up the nose that contained something and it worked it's way in?

yes that happens sometimes when swimming natural bodies of water....your brother needs to be in the hospital ....but in general down the line for infections I would say....wild oregano oil......my gums have never looked better....my sister has one back tooth to chew with she recently started adding a drop in her toothbrush with her toothpaste...the tooth was loose and she hadinflamed gums..her gums are much better and the tooth is definitely tightened up.....

I thought cats claw was for tight muscles?? am I incorrect??

My Grandad died of a blood clot to the brain days after having a tooth removed. I'm sorry you're Brother is going through this, I hope a discovery is made quickly.

I was thinking Lyme disease too.

My cousins’ son went swimming in a pond once and he contracted some bacterial infection in his brain that affected him for years; he’s been med-flighted to Boston from NH twice. Years later he’s stable, but suffers other symptoms. He just recently went thru more testing, and were hoping for some answers. I won’t ever swim in a pond again.


OP: I will pray for your brother, and hoping for his health to return fully.

Have they ruled out c-diff?

My poor brother has been in the hospital in a horror of an unexpected illness that has now affected his entire body. He lost his large intestine, lungs and all major organs are affected. He can't eat, has feeding tubes and a hole in his neck to breathe and has to wear breathing instruments...on and on and it is awful. Nothing seems to kill this awful virus.

We think he picked it up at a nursing home he had just recently been visiting every day as his sil was dying there. Hospitals and dr offices are also suspects.

Never heard of c-diff before. Living through a nightmare-with my whole family-we love him so-he's a great family guy and friend and he will never be the same if he survives. He's been in the hospital over 3 months.

I hope it's not c-diff. My heart goes out to you. These are the hard times.

Omg I’m so sorry for your brother also. I got c-diff after taking Clindamycin prescribed after a tooth procedure. I thought I was going to die.

Vancomycin is the best treatment for it, and bleach everything in his home. C-diff is no joke.

I will pray for him too. When he recovers enough to go home, I cannot stress this enough, probiotics are a must daily for months, and bleaching.

I'm sorry you and your brother are going through this. Has your brother had a lung biopsy? It's possible that his lung infection has spread. Also, in order to treat an infection in the brain, a blood-brain barrier disruption must be performed (ICU is mandatory) and IV antibiotics (or antivirals, antifungals, etc.) given. Very few doctors do blood-brain barrier disruptions so if your doctor doesn't do them (or have experience with them) he/she may be unwilling to suggest it as a treatment.

I know it's hard to see your brother go through this and the lack of a definitive diagnosis is frustrating. You're not your brother's doctor and neither is anyone else on here (including me). You can suggest things, ask specific questions, point them in a particular direction but leave the medical stuff to the medical professionals. Just be there for your brother and please let us know what you find out (if you feel so inclined).

I wish you both the best.

So my brother went into the hospital with what he thought was Pneumonia. Definitely had respiratory distress. They took x-rays and prescribed antibiotics. About a week later he went back in for a follow up x-ray and the spot was still on his lung. now they are thinking maybe something more serious like cancer. They do some tests and send him home to wait for the results.

In the meantime, his right arm starts to pump uncontrollably one day and we get him to the hospital. He gets an MRI and he has a lesion on the left side of his brain. (tumor)? They do a biopsy and find out it is a bacteriological infection. The doctors have no idea how he could have gotten it since there was no entry point into the brain where it is. Furthermore, they cant isolate what kind of infection it is or how to treat it properly yet. They have him on 3rd generation antibiotics right now. It seems to be holding it at bay for now.

The hospital had put him on Warfarin to make sure there is no blood clotting, but this caused hemmoraging in the brain where the infrection was. He also ended up getting a blood clot anyway. Yesterday, he had surgury to drain the abcess in the brain and they removed several blood clots from his right arm. His hemoglobin is all messed up and parts of his body are hemorraging and parts are clotting.

He lives in western Canada and I heard of a similar case in Alberta.

Anyone in ATS land hear of this kind of condition?

Sounds very similar to Blastomycosis which is a type of fungal infection that can grow a mass in the lungs or infect other organs as well and may cause secondary bacterial infections.

A thought here might be colloidal silver. I used it externally when I had a antibiotic resistant MRSA. It seemed to help though I was also on vancomycin at the time too.

Perhaps a high oral dose for 2 to 3 weeks. Not much longer though you would run the risk of turning blue.

This is what I used.
