because it is used for laundry, people associate borax with detergent. the only place I can find the borax is wal-mart. of course, they are the ones importing the chinese morgs and communist strongyls.
Whoa!! Just read this, ANTIFUNGAL FOR FIBERGLASS
"Borax (from Persian burah), also known as sodium borate, sodium tetraborate, or disodium tetraborate, is an important boron compound, a mineral, and a salt of boric acid. It is usually a white powder consisting of soft colorless crystals that dissolve easily in water.
Borax has a wide variety of uses. It is a component of many detergents, cosmetics, and enamel glazes. It is also used to make buffer solutions in biochemistry, as a fire retardant, as an anti-fungal compound for fiberglass, as an insecticide, as a flux in metallurgy, and as a precursor for other boron compounds.
The term borax is used for a number of closely related minerals or chemical compounds that differ in their crystal water content, but usually refers to the decahydrate. Commercially sold borax is usually partially dehydrated."
i dont want to poop on your wonderful borax thread...just that my static guard story was written on my pH paper.
anyhoo....get some for your environment. its the shiznit. dont know whats in it.... but jan 2006 i sprayed it in samples of spit, ya spit. ;D killed/froze the spores, right in the middle of them playing. they were building chains (blue and white) ((eventual hyphae))
Froze in time and their self-lights faded to a dull nothingness!
Glad you are feeling better but are you sure it is because you are eating Borax ? Change anything else lately ? Added or deleted anything else ?
There are two things that I really feel need saying here.
Whether or not "Morgs" like or do not like sodium themselves may have no bearing on YOUR eating it. IF your kidneys are in really good shape, they will be able to nullify the excess sodium you are eating so that you do not end up in the ER like the woman kmarie knows who tried the same thing and then got diagnosed as nutz for self harm and then drugged for being insane. [glow=red,2,300]Too much sodium[/glow] can seriously throw off your electrolyte balance and screw you up big time. AND there is no evidence that eating excessive amount of it is killing anything.
The other thing is - People have got this idea that if you eat things that are [glow=red,2,300]alkanline [/glow](whatever it is )it is a good thing, period. I know about keeping the system alkanline but it is not as simple as eating things that are alkaline !!! If you have some LEMON JUICE - it is ACID ! The GI system (that can compensate) notices how ACID it is and then produces an alkaline response !! If you eat something that is alkaline (sodium bicarbonate or milk for example) the body responds by producing Hyrochloric Acid !
I think it would be good to take a physiology class to get a basic understanding of how the body works before coming to conclusions (based on faulty knowledge) and then taking actions that may be harmful.
Liatris thank you, I was sort of cringing at saying something too...cause I sure don't want to rain on anyone's parade. But I've read about it also (Borax) and read also in the MSDS and other sites, about espogeal (sp?)(the throat area) being literally destroyed.
Please be careful, this isn't something to be ingested. Honest it's not. It may temporarily seem to fix things, but tomorrow will come and more severe problems can occur from this.
Boron (in supplemental form) is quite different.
I have Triple Boron Supplements, and they've not helped, but they might help you more, and they're safe and tested for human consumption.
FrustratedGuest: The only people that think this is delusional, are those that do not have it. I woke one day 3 years ago with 23 'bites' on my legs. After being treated for scabies & lice, checked for bedbugs etc...with 12,000 people complaining~Somebody HELP US!

hownow browncow : How do you know they were bites, because they look like bites, the bug thing is delusions, or doctors would see them, are you telling me doctors are blind as well as stupid, if they are blind how did they read there exams?
Jul 27, 2014 0:15:44 GMT -5
hownow browncow : The more interesting question would be, how do doctors pass those exams. If you would imagine I do not have this disease what would you base your intelligence on, five bug bite looking spots, 6, 19.

hownow browncow : Have you ever heard of Morgellons, that rash you had, imagine its a disease rash, part of the hidden ugly associated with being INFECTED with a DISEASE. Have you ever heard of a dermatologist, I will not say they are worth anything, but they treat

hownow browncow : SKIN ISSUES, not bug issues, still parasitic invasion is quite common, DEMODEX are VERY common, but they just are not this disease, you do not get a gold star. If the kind of itching I had was caused by a parasite I would have no body left

hownow browncow : Don't be frustrated, get some fertile chicken eggs, grind a hole in them and put a drop of blood in the embryo, I guaranty results, I think you will find that this monster can live in any warm blooded animal. Its simple, incubator, fertile chicken eggs.

hownow browncow : I know too busy shooing the bugs away. I had a Jehovah Witness come to the door today she had a few little tiny flys after her, she kept swatting at them, I asked her please do me a favor, stop bothering my flys they were trying to get something to eat,
Jul 27, 2014 0:34:58 GMT -5
hownow browncow : I know your in pain and disgusted, the bug idea is getting us NO WHERE except to the bug house, the funny farm, the loony bin, the rubber room, the bug factory, nut house, mad house. Credibility is nil when you say bug

Kitty2014: WhatsamattaU, why do you have to resort to sarcasm to ones' who are in the same rocky boat as you? I thought you were a troll! I can understand that after 42 yrs, you're probably real pi$$ed, but really, it doesn't help our cause! Don't get me wrong,
Jul 28, 2014 0:36:44 GMT -5
Kitty2014: humour is the most precious thing we have left, I s'pose and as futile as you think it is, I will always challenge anyone who thinks we are not speakin' the truth! I don't even understand why they come on here, as this is a Morgie community, is it not!?
Jul 28, 2014 0:44:50 GMT -5
Kitty2014: Anyway, I kinda like your style, now I know you're a sufferer! I'm sorry life and the to$$ers' who ridicule us have reduced you to your almost hostile sarcasm! By the way, I don't presume I'm special, with my own disease, just defensive of what I've got!
Jul 28, 2014 0:50:16 GMT -5
Kitty2014: Lol!!! Incidentally, got some interesting pics, but none of the little 8astard fibres or whatever they are! I've seen a couple poke out of my pores, but rather than get my camera out, I just panic and try to get 'em to go back in! Lol not!

Kitty2014: FrustratedGuest, I feel your pain! If you want somethin' that may be of help, with an alternative answer, look at: http://livingwithmorgellons.wordpress.com/2013/05/30/what-morgellons-does-to-a-life/ I've found it helpful, see Binky's posts esp!

Kitty2014: WhatsamattaU, I must apologise, it was Hownow browncow being almost hostile and accusing one of feelin' special! I am truly sorry!!! It's this box, gets confusin'! Wish we had a full page! Lol!
Jul 28, 2014 1:10:06 GMT -5
Kitty2014: Hownow browncow, hope you're feelin' much better yourself! Don't forget, we're the good guys!!! Peace and mental confusion! Lol!
