Borax @ Take Borax to supplement Boron! The real cure of arthritis, osteoporosis and many other chronic diseases Ė Lyra Nara Blog (wordpress.com) 2/22/2014 - "Borax is...mined from dried salt lakes & source of other manufactured boron compounds. The main deposits are in California & Turkey. Chemical names: sodium tetraborate decahydrate, disodiumtetraborate decahydrate, or simply sodium borate...Boron is distributed throughout the body with the highest concentration in the parathyroid glands, followed by bones & dental enamel...

Research has now shown that boron supplementation in postmenopausal women doubles blood level of most active form of o-estrogen, 17-beta oestradiol, to the level found in women on oestrogen replacement therapy. Equally, the blood levels of testosterone more than doubled (7).
With HRT there is a higher risk of breast or endometrial cancer which is not known to happen with hormones produced by the body as with borax supplementation.  Some women get premenstrual problems because oestrogen levels are too high & progesterone too low, & therefore may be afraid of using boron. However, I (author) found no evidence that boron raises o-estrogen above normal healthy levels. Boron may balance levels of sex hormones similar to the action of maca root powder. 
Maca acts on the pituitary gland
not only to increase & balance our sex hormones & seems to stimulate our own progesterone production as needed.  (However, the CAUTION is correct & excess can contribute to or trigger breast or other hormonal problems, at least for those with a family history of such issues)...
I believe that cancer can usually be controlled with long-term antimicrobial therapy.
Therefore I (author) would use boron as well as maca
. (Final NOTE: spiritual worldview may not be Judeo-Christian.)

Boric Acid @ Take Borax to supplement Boron! The real cure of arthritis, osteoporosis and many other chronic diseases Ė Lyra Nara Blog (wordpress.com) 2/22/2014  -
"Borax is the sodium salt of the weak boric acid. Because sodium is more strongly alkaline, this makes a solution of borax strongly alkaline with a pH between 9-10 (pH 7 is neutral).
When ingested, it reacts with hydrochloric acid in the stomach to form boric acid & sodium chloride.
The boron content of Borax is 11.3% while for boric acid it is 17.5% or about 50% higher."

Calcium Fructoborate for Bone & Cardiovascular Health
Calcium fructoborate (CF), a natural sugar-borate ester found in fresh fruits & vegetables, is a source of soluble boron. 
CF contains 3 forms of borate (diester, monoester & boric acid) & all are biologically active, both at the intracellular (as free boric acid) & extracellular level (as fructose-borate diester & mono-ester).
At the cellular & molecular level, CF is superior to the boric acid/borate, exhibiting a complex 'protective' effect against inflammatory response. CF is commercially available in the USA as a 'nature-identical' complex, an active compound for dietary supplements.
It provides effective safe support against the discomfort & lack of flexibility associated with osteoarticular conditions (arthritis & joint degeneration)...Orally administered CF is effective in ameliorating symptoms of physiological response to stress, including inflammation of the mucous. membranes, discomfort associated with osteoarthritis disorders & bone loss."

Full spectrum CBD @ JointRestore (prospercbd.com) (edited)
CBD is part of marijuana plant that won't
get you high.
CBD does a lot of different things for the body, but it is NOT psychoactive like 'pot'.
Our bodies need CBD. A whole system in our body that controls inflammation, healing & pain response is called the endo-cannabinoid system (ECS).  Itís critical to use high-quality, full-spectrum CBD because it contains at least 13 different cannabinoids, all with very specific roles in soothing pain in the knees.(2)  
CBG has been proven to be a super effective anti-inflammatory like CBD, but it also stimulates cellular growth in brain & muscle tissue.(3)(6)  CBD loosens & relaxes muscles, reducing muscle pain & improving blood flow to knee joint.(5)  (Dosage: 10% CBD to 100% Boswella)  
One may wish to find a CBD that is US Hemp Authority approved. 
The USHA seal is reserved for the highest quality CBD products in the world. 
Our CBD supplier usea a patented system called Terpex to extract CBD.  You've probably heard about CO2 extraction or solvent.  My supplier uses whole hemp plant oil to extract CBD from the plant.

Another tool
...is so important...Itís called the Glory Light...
Malachi 4:2
says, 'The center of righteousness (Jesus Messiah) arises with healing in His wings & beams.' 
The beams there are talking about beams of light & the wings that represents the prayer shawl, which represents the Glory Cloud.  So Jesus arises with healing in his glory & his light...

When I went to Australia the Lord said, 'Now I want you to start moving in that revelation & releasing light.' 
You can even release it long distance Ďcause light travels 186,000 miles per second, right?

So he said, 'I want you to start releasing Glory Light on your momís hip.'
From Australia...I began to press into my faith to release the Glory Light.
I called her 2 days later. Now she doesnít know Iím doing this.
She goes, ďIíve had this angelic being coming into my room & heís beaming light into me.Ē
"The Lord began to show me how her other hip, which they were going to take out because it was being degenerated by the disease, was being restored. Iím in the plane.
Godís saying that hip is being restored in the Glory Light.
He goes, '
But now the leg bone is out of the socket.'  He says, 'So now I want you to do some thundering.'
I said, '
Thundering?'  I go, 'Okay, whatís thundering?'
I did a word search in Bible Gateway (concordance), & was in the scripture about the valley of dry bones.
Ezekiel 37:7 says, 'There was a thundering, a shaking & rattling, & the bones came together, bone fits bone.'
So I fly home & run into her house. I donít even tell her what Iím doing.
I began to command the bones to come together, bone fits bone so that the leg bone would go into the hip socket.  Sheís laying there. She has no idea what Iím doing.  She goes, 'Ow. Ow.' I go, 'Whatís going on?'  She goes, 'I have a pain.' I said, 'What kind of pain?' She goes, 'Well it wasnít really a pain.
It was more like the feeling of when the ball of a truck goes into the hitch of a trailer.'
Didnít have to touch her...& the bones came together."


5. Cipro [Cipro-floxacin (CR) Hydro-chloride (HCL)] http://www.ciproispoison.com/
"attacks much more than just your tendons; it is toxic to ALL connective tissues including:
 muscle/bone/ fascia/sk n/nerves/even cartilage.
A laboratory study done on puppies showed that Cipro actually melts the cartilage out of their joints.
 (In case you didn't already know--cartilage does not
regenerate. Once it's gone, it's gone).
Degeneration of the cartilage matrix in humans has been observed following as few as 2 oral doses of Cipro-floxacin.4
This information has been known by scientists for over a decade now. 
Yet the word "cartilage" still appears absolutely nowhere on Cipro's warning label.
There's a huge difference between 'joint pain' (what is described on the drug insert) & complete joint destruction requiring replacement.  Yet numerous individuals, both young & old, have had to undergo full joint replacement surgeries shortly after taking Cipro
People have also suffered osteonecrosis (bone death) as a result of taking this drug.

6. Cipro does not cause 'tendonitis' as Bayer describes it on the warning label.  Tendonitis is an overuse injury.
Cipro-floxacin is directly toxic to tendon cells, chemically altering & destroying them on a cellular or even DNA level.  Again, there's a big difference.
7. Cipro-induced injuries DO NOT HEAL NORMALLY, if at all. Floxed bodies lose their ability to heal. 
A small injury that would heal in a matter of days for a 'normal' person often takes weeks or months to heal in a floxed person, or may not heal at all.

8. Cipro can & will attack your body regardless of your age or prior level of health.
Do not think that because you are young, healthy or have never experienced any tendon or joint problems that you are safe taking this drug. It doesn't work that way.

Cipro is not even permitted for use in patients under the age of 18 because it can interfere with the development of a child's still-growing connective tissues
Cipro can render a top athlete of any age completely crippled
& unable to walk, let alone workout or compete ever again...There is NO such thing as a safe fluoro-quinolone antibiotic.
