    I wish there was more research on this subject. There’s also the belief that copper sterilizes water or alkalizes it.

    • @SammytheStampede on November 29, 2023 at 2:50 am

      It adds copper element into drinking water which is why it’s used for pipes. Pure copper/silver/gold have antibacterial properties to them.

      Same with silver- it’s a reason why bits of silver were tossed into wells n the town fountains. Later copper coins n silver coins. Possibly the start of the Wishing Well. They didn’t know why way back then but wishing wells n wishing fountains had the safest drinking water… pretty sure it helped pay the cleaners too… just a thought.

    I have had sciatica, several times, so bad sometimes that I had to use crutches to get around. I’m pretty sure I know what causes it for me (and others). I was watching some medical doctor training CDs years ago where they were looking at cadavers (bodies of deceased people who have donated their bodies for medical research). In one of the videos it showed how the sciatic nerve goes down through an opening in the pelvic bone. The nerve is very close to the colon (the large intestine). My theory is this: if something is eaten that inflames the colon (in my case it is cherries), whatever is in them causes inflammation in the colon, and it causes the sciatic nerve to also become inflamed. Thus causing sciatica. It happens on different levels every time I eat cherries.

  16. @TheMiriam333 on December 1, 2023 at 3:45 am

    I use very high dose copper sulfate that I make myself (for dirty cheap) around 30 mgs a day. For a year and a half. Previous to copper, I was dying from ehler’s danlos (severe), dozens of seizures a week, and multiple sclerosis symptoms. I was not expected to live. I started very high dose copper (with nothing to lose) and high thiamine (started at 1800 mgs a day and now down to 800 mgs a day). I’m walking now, finally able to hold down food, no more seizures, and all my joints and organs are becoming stronger. I think many “diseases” are server deficiencies. I had a near immaculate diet prior to copper and thiamine (never touched sugar, gluten, chemicals, etc…) but found I had major genetic issues which meant many pathways were shut down in my body and I wasn’t getting enough of certain nutrients I needed. I go very high on my minerals now and life is coming back into me. Praise God!!

    • @gofigure4920 on December 1, 2023 at 8:50 am

      So happy you found a cheap and great solution. Just be careful with it. Be supervised by a naturopathy Doctor on your illness and dosage. There are side effects when taken so much. Schizophrenia is one of them that I heard.

      @@gofigure4920 I am a Nutritional Counselor. Ayurvedic degree. Schizo episodes are not from copper but from toxins and metals being released. I simply went higher faster rather than leave the metals and toxins in doing more long term damage. Detox isn’t easy. But copper is life saving and worth it. The system has entirely lied about it copper. It is miraculous and many in eastern medicine have quietly known this for centuries.

Hcl type is very easy for me, though. I just need high dose for it to make a difference. Low dose of hcl is almost harder on me. I never touch B6 or B9. For some reason, those in synthetic form cause me neuron damage… so only food form of those.

    I think sciatic nerve issues go back to uneven muscle distribution. Physical therapist can find out what muscles you need to work out to be more symmetric with your muscle distribution.

    Carefull with ORAL supplementing copper. In certain cases, o.a. livermalfunction, it can accumulate in the brain. Those effect are not reversable. First have bloodwork done.

  19. @mebpratt859 on December 8, 2023 at 7:22 pm

    Back in the late 60’s when I had a sciatica problem my pediatrician had me taking vitamin C and high dosage vitamin B complex 4 times a day (morning, lunch, dinner and bedtime) until it was under control, abut two weeks, then just twice a day everyday. I’m 71 now and no symptoms any more. I had not just the pain but my knee would give out and I would fall or couldn’t use the clutch in my vehicle. She was one of three GP’s I have gone to in my life who really knew what they were doing and believed in using supplements instead of drugs when possible.
