Looking for reassurance with Borax

Posted , 4 users are following.

Since LS is an autoimmune disorder it seems to me that one should     Address our immune systems.

I am keen to try the Borax in water formula to increase mineral absorption  but would like to hear from anyone that’s actually taking it. I know that some LS sufferers use it successfully as a soak and spray, which makes me think internally could be beneficial.

I struggle to reach minimum levels of Sodium constantly and read Borax will assist that besides boosting the immune system.

I take Mag, D3, K2, B Complex, Vit C so should be healthy as but if I’m not absorbing them it won’t be doing a lot of good, Borax might just be the answer. 

Thoughts  ladies?

    I was drinking borax water for arthritis, stiff joints, prior to being diagnosed with LS.  I use 1/8th of a teaspoon of borax powder in a litre of non-tap water and I would drink about half of this in a day, 4 days a week, as this was the recommended dose from another source.    I've used the borax powder diluted in a sitz bath to relieve LS symptoms.

      Thanks Frances did you have any side effects at all internallY?

      I bought a Sitz bath that sits on the toilet, such a time saver, so will try Borax next time I need a soak.

    I am astounded that anyone would take Borax internally !! 

    This is the reason it was banned in the UK 🇬🇧 

    Borax is a laundry agent and whilst I have used it myself ( after ensuring it was as Pure as you can get )  with good results some time ago. 

    Never would I drink it.

    Find out what long term harm it  could do by ingesting it 

    Alarming this is !!
