Various Self-Care Remedies and Recipes.

Below is a list of the self-care rituals I do.  Somehow, I am a bit of a chemist, and I enjoy tinkering with ingredients to make various potions, salves and other concoctions that help me stay healthy.

I fully understand if you are not that type. 

Regardless of that, I am using these pages to tell you how I do things, so that, if you get inspired, you can do the same.

In the first part I will mention ingredients I use, and in the second part are the recipes for various ailments.

  • Hydrogen Peroxide
  • Quinton Water
  • DMSO
  • Iodine
  • MMS
  • Colloidal Silver
  • Vitamin O
  • Garlic Oil
  • The bottle assortment

Hydrogen Peroxide

Probably my most important ingredient is hydrogen peroxide (chemical formula H2O2.)  It is readily available in pharmacies and supermarkets, generally in a brown plastic bottle in a concentration of 3%.  Because H2O2 is unstable and loses some of its fizz (3% become 2½%, or even less,) commercially available H2O2 has chemical stabilizers in it.

I don’t like these, so I make my own 3% H2O2.  Basically, I purchase 35% food-grade (no stabilizers) H2O2 from  (No JV.)  One gallon cost me around $80 including shipping.  Get an extra 15% off, if at checkout you enter code: 154u.

So, with this product I make my own 3% H2O2. I take a quart measuring cup, add 33 oz. of pure water, and then add 3 oz. of the 35% H2O2 solution, which now makes a quart of 3% H2O2 solution.

Please be careful.  Wear plastic gloves and eye protection when working with the 35% concentrate.

H2O2 needs to be stored in a dark bottle, I prefer glass, so I have a 1qt dark violet bottle.  I use a Miron Violet Flame 1 liter round glass bottle.  It is based on ancient alchemy.  By allowing only ultra-violet and infra-red light to penetrate, it enhances the water’s (in this case H2O2) vitality and raises its frequency.  Get it here:  (No JV.)

I also make 18% solution buy mixing H2O2 and water half and half.  Finally, for certain other applications I use it in a pure fully concentrated state.

If you don’t want to make your own 3% H2O2 then just purchase regular 3% H2O2 available at pharmacies, drugstores and/or supermarkets, etc.

Quinton Water

This product is another must have solution in your self-care regimen.  It has been used in Europe for a long time.  During WW2 it was used as a substitute for blood infusions in field hospitals.

The water is harvested in the Atlantic Ocean near Spain just below a large swath of sea plankton.  Because of those specific circumstances, it is very close to human extra cellular fluid and blood plasma.  There are two kinds of Quinton waters, the isotonic, which has a sodium content of 0.9%, just like the fluids in the body, and a hypertonic solution with greater concentrations of sodium.

Here is a table that compares Isotonic Quinton water to extracellular fluid and blood plasma.

As you can see, the mineral content very closely resembles bodily fluids.

Because of that it makes excellent moisturizing and soothing eye and nasal drops.

It is available here: (JV) (only ships to US)

In Canada it is known as BiOcean and available at (no JV)


DMSO (dimethyl sulfoxide) is a byproduct of wood pulp.  It is a liquid that enhances may other ingredients as it makes those other ingredients more absorbable.

Find the 99% pure liquid.  It is available in many places via mail order.  Make certain you find the ‘pure’ kind.  Dilute it to below 50% if you apply it directly to your skin.  Also, make certain the skin is clean, because if you have impurities on your skin, the DMSO will dissolve those and transport them into your body.

This is what it said on the Amazon web site:

“DMSO is a powerful free radical scavenger and an effective anti-inflammatory agent. It also has pain-relieving, collagen softening characteristics, making it an incredibly effective natural pain reliever.”

I use it in various mixtures and recipes that I mix together (see further below)


I use two kinds of iodine.  Lugol’s iodine at 2% or 5% (mail order) and Povidone iodine 10% (in drugstores or via mail order)


 I use this on rare occasions to disinfect my skin.

MMS stand for Miracle Mineral Solution.  It is an extremely powerful disinfectant.  It is used to disinfect spaces after an anthrax scare.  It is also used to disinfect water.  Even though there is ample lore that it is beneficial for various illnesses, I do not recommend that you use it internally.

It is generally purchased in two parts:  Liquid sodium chlorite and an acid, such as citric or hydrochloric acid, that when mixed together will produce a yellow liquid of chlorine dioxide. 

One place to buy it is (no JV)

Colloidal Silver

Colloidal silver are very fine particles of silver that are so minute, they are suspended in liquid.  Generally, the liquid is water.

It comes in various concentrations which are designated in “parts per million (PPM.)”

If you use it straight, the body can tolerate up to 30PPM.  However, I like to mix it, so I purchase 500PPM.  It is a dark orange color.

It is available in many places via mail order, but I purchase it here: (JV) (only ships to US)

Vitamin O

It is not really a vitamin.  That is just its name.

Vitamin O is an oxygen enhanced water, a supplement taken in liquid form, produced through electrical activation with saline solution.  It helps to raise oxygen levels in the body.  It can be very helpful if your body tissue lacks oxygen.

It is available here: you are using it to “clear” lung infections, also purchase the 2-pack spray attachment available here:

Garlic Oil

 Take 2 ounces of organic olive oil, almond oil or avocado oil and add 4 large cloves of organic garlic that you chop up to the oil.  Place into a small container, cover up and let the garlic soak for 3 weeks in your refrigerator.  After 3 weeks, strain the oil and transfer it into a dropper bottle.

Oregano Oil

Oregano oil has antibacterial and antifungal properties.  According to Health Line it is also a powerful antioxidant.  It is available via mail order and health food stores and also on Amazon at (No JV.)

The Bottle Assortment

With all the mixing and various application method you need a few empty bottles.  Because of that, and because ordering small quantities of bottles shipped from various sources costs great amounts of shipping, I have created a bottle assortment that I make available via mail order (in the US only for now.)

The assortment consists of

2 2-ounce amber dropper bottles

4 2-ounce amber dropper bottles

6 2-ounce white plastic bottles (3 with mist spray top and 3 with nasal sprayer top)

14 small labels

This assortment is available at:

So, this is it for the basic ingredients.  Here now is how I use these ingredients:

  • Care of teeth and deep pockets
  • Eye issues
  • Nose and sinus issues
  • Throat, bronchial and lung issues
  • Nail fungus
  • Skin care
  • Ear issues

This is a group Self-Care Rituals I do.  They use natural products.  If you are inspired, please use them at your own risk.

Not all remedies work for everyone the same.  If you try one of my remedies and it does not work for you, please find other remedies or consult with a health care practitioner.

Care of teeth and deep pockets

A very long time ago, my then dentist removed a wisdom tooth and filled the hole that was left behind with a plastic packing substance before sewing it up.  It took about 20 years or so, but this stuff formed a toxic cavitation filled with necrotic bacteria.  Over time the cavitation had grown more and more, and finally it took over the roots of the molar next to it.  The bacteria spread in my whole mouth and created deep pockets.  All my gums bled at the slightest touch.

When a dentist measures the pockets, or gaps between the gum and the tooth, they insert a probe into that gap and see how far the probe can go down before it hits bone.  The results are shown in mm (millimeters.)  Each tooth is measured at six places, so a mouth with all your 32 teeth will have 192 measurements.  Measurements of 3 mm or below are acceptable, but anything 4 mm or greater creates a cause for concern. 

As of September 2022, I have 6 9mm pockets, 1 8mm, 3 7mm and many more 6, 5 and 4mm ones.  If I went to see a periodontist, my mouth would be declared a disaster zone.  He or she would pull out many of my teeth and replace them with bridges or implants.

However, I have been functioning with these deep pockets for over 20 years, and my teeth still serve me well.

Dentistry does not like deep pockets because they are breeding grounds for infections, and even if you rinse with antibacterial mouthwash, it cannot reach all the way into the pockets.

However, I have been able to maintain the health of my teeth by keeping the pockets infection free.

So, how do I do this?

I floss, I brush and I irrigate. 

First, I floss my teeth. Then I brush.  I brush with an Oral-B electric tooth brush.  There is no need to get the deluxe set, you can find their most basic set on Amazon or at a pharmacy for about $80. (No JV.)

I do not use tooth paste.  I use sea salt.  In the past I used a regular sea salt, but now with all the micro plastic floating around in the oceans, I use a salt mined from an old salt deposits:  Redmond Ancient Fine Sea Salt.  It is available at health food stores, Whole Foods Markets, or via mail order at Amazon ( (No JV) I wet my tooth brush, dip it into the salt and then brush my teeth.

Finally, and this seems to be the most important part for NOT having infections, I rinse with an oral irrigator.  I tried a few, but the one I like the most is the Hydro Floss.  Currently this site seems to offer the best price: (No JV.)  I also recommend that you purchase the Hydro Floss Oral Irrigator Sulcus Jet Tip (pack of 4) on the same site: (No JV.) Dental Mart is a Hydro Floss authorized reseller, and they offer a 2 year warranty.

I use a 3% H2O2 solution.  Now you can use store-bought H2O2 but that will be at room temperature, and for me that feels uncomfortable deep down in my teeth.  I prefer a warm solution, and that is why I make my own 3% H2O2.  In a measuring cup I mix 5½ ounces of warm water with a ½ ounce of 35% food grade H2O2, making a warm 3% solution.

Then I irrigate all my teeth with my warm 3% H2O2 solution.

20 or so years ago a periodontist recommended that my front incisor be removed and replaced with an implant.  I refused and was severely chided by him.  However, 20 years later this tooth is still in my mouth and functioning well, even with a 9mm deep pocket.  So don’t let the “medical experts” scare you and instill fear in you.

Now, some of my pockets are really deep, and so my Hydro Floss irrigation does not always go all the way in.  Then I use the Oratec Pocket Care irrigator available at (No JV.)  I use the 27-gauge unit.  The other product I use at time, especially with the front teeth is a Mark3 Endo Irrigation Kit available at (No JV.)

When I use these last 2 products I mentioned, I use a solution of 75% 3% H2O2 and 25% 99% pure DMSO.  The DMSO tends to take the H2O2 deeper into the tissue.

On top of that I see a hygienist for a professional cleaning every 6 months.

I know this is rather complex and involved, but so far it saved my teeth.  And I foresee that they will serve me well for another 20 years

Eye Issues

For dry eyes, moisten eyes with Quinton water.

For infections external to the eye, use one drop of Vitamin O in the affected eye two or three times a day.

Nose and sinus issues

For dry mucous membranes, moisten nose with Quinton water using a nasal sprayer.

For infection in the nasal passages and sinuses, create a solution of 2 ounces Quinton water and add 5 droppers full of the 500 PPM colloidal silver and spray up your nose.  Use 3 sprays per nostril 2 or 3 times a day. 

Additionally, you can also use a Q-tip and swab the inside of your nostrils with a Povidone Iodine solution.

Throat, bronchial and lung issues

Place a spray pump top onto a Vitamin O bottle, and spray into your mouth at the same time as you sharply inhale.  Spray 3 to 4 sprays into your mouth at least 4 times a day.

For strep throat you can also gargle with a 3% H2O2 solution 2 to 3 times a day.  Please make certain that you do not swallow any of the H2O2.

Nail Fungus

Use EmuAidMax ointment as directed on the container.  It is available here: (No JV.)  You need to apply it to your nail until all the fungus has grown out, otherwise the fungus in the nail will re-infect the nail bed.

Ear issues

Alternate two remedies.  Do both remedies once per day.  One in the morning, the other one in the evening.

First remedy.  Lay on your side and squirt 5 to 6 drops of 3% H2O2 into your ear.  Let it bubble for 3 minutes.  Then turn around and let the liquid drain out of your ear.  Do the second ear the same way.

This first remedy is also good if you have ear wax build up.  Do this twice a day.

Second remedy:  Mix the garlic oil and oregano oil half and half and, laying on your side, squirt 3 drops of the oil mixture into your ear.  Let it soak for 2 to 3 minutes.  Repeat for the other ear.
