Borax Best Detox & Cure For Mycoplasma, Arthritis, Morgellons, Osteoporosis and More

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Absolutely nothing is more disheartening and frustrating than to be doing everything you believe to be right, and spending hours a day teaching others about real food and nutrition, while suffering in silence with unexplained joint pain and trying to hide an ever incapacitating limp!

And then at a Weston A. Price conference on nutrition, Sally Fallon casually dropped a ‘precious jewel’ that has given me the promise of a whole new day! A day? (a lifetime?) without the pain, stiffness and inflammation that have become my albatross. I would like to share it with you, because I know that too many people are suffering just like me.

BORON is a mineral that is simply an activator. It helps to activate or cause many other functions to happen within the body. Boron is one of the main minerals used in the bone building process. Boron initiates estrogen by helping convert vitamin D into an active state. The estrogen then improves absorption of calcium. Boron also helps metabolism to take place within the bone. With this metabolism properly functioning, osteoporosis is not a major factor to a person’s health. Once osteoporosis sets in, Boron can play a major role in helping the body to replace lost calcium.

Boron also assists in preventing arthritis and tooth decay. Boron is one of the minerals necessary for building and repairing joint cartilage. Boron is essential in maintaining the correct levels of calcium, magnesium and phosphorus in the body. Boron helps to regulate hormones, especially estrogen and testosterone. Boron also helps maintain brain function and memory capabilities.

Boron deficiency can cause cell walls to become very weak and fragile, rendering the cells incapable of properly transferring nutrients into them. The body depends on Boron for performing most of its functions. With its interactions with calcium and other minerals…

…Boron is a very important part of a long chain that intertwines all the minerals necessary for individual cell growth and health!

Boron is essential for ALL life in plants as well as animals. Boron is essential for the integrity and function of cell walls and the way signals are transmitted across cellular membranes.

When ingested it reacts with hydrochloric acid in the stomach to form Boric acid, ingested Boron compounds are rapidly and nearly completely excreted with the urine.

Chemical fertilizers inhibit the uptake of Boron from the soil. An organic apple grown in rich soil may have 20 mg Boron, but if grown with fertilizer it may have only 1 mg of Boron. The average intake of Boron in developed countries is only 1-2 mg of Boron per day.

This creates health problems due to Boron deficiency which is now very common, but very few of us know about it.

Boron is necessary throughout the body with the highest concentration in the parathyroid glands, the bones, joints and the dental enamel. It is essential for healthy bone and joint function, it is responsible for regulating the absorption and metabolism of calcium, magnesium and phosphorus.

Some symptoms of Boron deficiency are arthritis, brittle bones, carpal tunnel syndrome, degenerative joint disease, hormonal imbalance, loss of libido, memory loss, muscle pain, osteoporosis, receding gum, and weak joint cartilage. Boron deficiency causes greatly increased amounts of calcium and magnesium to be lost with the urine.

Boron deficiency causes the parathyroid to become overactive and stressed which causes the glands to release too much parathyroid hormone. Excess parathyroid hormones raise the blood level of calcium by releasing calcium from the bones, joints and teeth into the blood stream. This then leads to osteoarthritis and other forms of arthritis, such as rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile arthritis, spondylitis, gout, lupus, osteoporosis, pyorrhea and tooth decay.

With advancing age high blood levels of calcium lead to calcification of soft tissues causing muscle contractions and stiffness; calcification of the eyes, endocrine glands, especially the pineal gland and the ovaries. Arteriosclerosis, kidney stones, and calcification of the kidneys ultimately leading to kidney failure. When the intracellular calcium levels get too high the cells will die!

Bone analysis has shown that arthritic joints and nearby bones have only half the Boron content of healthy joints. Equally, synovial fluid that lubricates joints and provides nutrients to the cartilage is Boron deficient in arthritic joints.

Arthritis in its various forms and its close relative osteoporosis affect a very large percentage of the population in developed countries. Osteoporosis is responsible for more long-term hospital care than any other individual disease. This is due to the very high incidence of fractures, and especially the protracted nature of hip fractures.

Please note that these ‘casualties’ are a main source of income for the medical-pharmaceutical system!


A Boron supplement will reduce the daily loss of calcium by nearly 50%. As this calcium is withdrawn mainly from your bones and teeth, Boron deficiency may be the most important factor in causing arthritis, osteoporosis and tooth decay today.

Boron affects the metabolism of steroid hormones, and especially the sex hormones. Supplementing with Boron increases low testosterone levels in men and estrogen levels in menopausal women. Boron also has an important role in converting vitamin D to its active form, thus increasing the calcium uptake and deposition into the bones and teeth rather than causing soft tissue to calcify. Also other beneficial effects have been reported such as improvement of heart disease, vision, psoriasis, balance, memory and cognition.

A German cancer researcher by the name of Dr. Paul-Gerhard Seeger has shown that cancer commonly starts with the deterioration of cell membranes. Since Boron is essential for cell membranes and Boron deficiency is widespread, this may be an important cause for the initiation of tumor growth. Boron compounds have anti-tumor properties and are “potent anti-osteoporotic, anti-inflammatory, hypolipemic, anti-coagulant and anti-neoplastic agents” (1).

Borax_1The missing link

In the 1960’s a soil and plant scientist by the name of Rex Newnham, Ph.D., D.O., N.D, developed arthritis.

Nearly Illegal Tactical Flashlight Saves Many Families During Power Outtages During East Cost Winter Storms

He tried conventional drugs but they not help so he looked for answers in the chemistry of plants. He realized that plants in the area in which he lived were mineral deficient. Knowing that Boron aids calcium metabolism in plants he decided to try supplementing with BORAX. Yes, you read it right…Borax. You may find it unimaginable that Borax, the humble insecticide and laundry detergent seems to be the missing link!

Dr. Newnham took 30 mg of Borax per day and in three weeks ALL pain, swelling and stiffness had disappeared!

The chemical names for Borax are Sodium Tetraborate, Disodium Tetraborate Decahydrate, or Sodium Borate. Chemically it is all the same, it is a naturally occurring mineral commonly mined from dried salt lakes. There is no “food-grade” Borax available or necessary as all Borax is the same and “natural”, it is usually mined in California or Turkey. Borax is commonly used as household cleaner, it is non-toxic and does not contain heavy metals. Pharmaceutical grade is not noticeably purer or better. Borax has antiseptic, antifungal, and antiviral properties but only mild antibacterial action.

Borax_3Ingredients: A NATURAL MINERAL.

Most of Dr. Rex Newnham’s later research was devoted to the relationship between soil Boron levels and arthritis. He published several scientific papers on Borax and arthritis. One was a double-blind trial in the mid 1980’s at the Royal Melbourne Hospital which showed that 70% of those who completed the trial were greatly improved. There were no negative side-effects reported, some participants reported that their heart ailments had also improved, and there was better general health and more energy. (3)

He told public health and medical school authorities about his discovery but they were more concerned about loss of their own profits and ended up instigating a government law that Boron be declared a poison in any concentration. This resulted in Dr. Newnham being fined and threatened and Borax becoming unavailable in the country in which he lived. Before the national ban, many people with arthritis who heard of Dr. Newnham’s discovery were delighted as they began supplementing with Borax and saw vast improvement. Others were afraid to take something that was being sold to kill cockroaches and ants.


Dr. Rex Newnham’s research found that the traditional sugarcane islands, due to long-term heavy use of fertilizers, have very low soil Boron levels. Jamaica has the lowest level of soil Boron and the arthritis rates of the population are 70%, he noted that even most of their dogs were limping.

The Mauritius islands off the southeast coast of Africa have very low Boron levels and 50% of the populations suffers with arthritis. The daily Boron intake in these countries is less than 1 mg/day.

An interesting comparison is between India and the native Fijians. The Indians are estimated to have an arthritis rate of 40% and eat much rice grown with fertilizer while the native Fijians with an estimated arthritis rate of 10% and eat mainly starchy root vegetables grown without fertilizer.

The US, England, Australia and New Zealand generally have average soil-Boron levels with an estimated intake of 1 to 2 mg of Boron and arthritis rates of approximately 20%.

Israel has some of the best soil in the world and a very high Boron content, with an estimated daily Boron intake of 5 to 8 mg. An independent survey in 1978-1980 at Kaplan Hospital showed arthritis for the whole country to be less than 1%.

Carnarvon in Western Australia has high Boron levels both in the soil and water, and the arthritis rate is only 1%.

It is similar to a place named Ngawha Springs in New Zealand which has very high Boron levels in the spa water and is acclaimed as a curative for arthritis. A hotel in Ngawha has a collection of wheelchairs and crutches that were left behind by people who no longer needed them when they left to go home after their stay there. Incidentally ALL SPAS reputedly curing arthritis have very high Borax levels.

You may have read about green lipped mussel extract from New Zealand that is claimed to relieve arthritis pain and other symptoms. These mussels were gathered from a volcanic island with vents under the sea. The NZ mussels have absorbed Boron from the sea; that is the secret to their healing properties. Mussels gathered from other areas do not have the same effect because they lack Boron.

Dr. Newnham’s research proved that after Borax supplementation an individual’s bones were much harder and stronger. With additional Boron, bone fractures healed in half the normal time in both man and animal. Horses and dogs with broken legs, and even a broken pelvis, fully recovered. A young girl, aged 9 months, with juvenile arthritis was supplemented with Boron and she was essentially ‘cured’ by Dr. Newnham in 2 weeks.

Rex Newnham’s research indicates that generally people are healed from their arthritis pain, swelling and stiffness in approximately 1 to 3 months.

He also stated that many patients with arthritis commonly experienced a Herxheimer reaction, which is an early aggravation of symptoms with increased pain for a short period of time (you may feel worse before you feel better). It is commonly due to toxins being released by killed Candida and mycoplasma. This is very common with antimicrobial therapy, and borax definitely is an exceptionally good and strong fungicide. Dr. Newnham regarded Herxheimer as a good prognostic sign indicating that the body was healing.

It has been estimated that 55% of Americans over the age of 50 have osteoporosis and of these approximately 80% are women. Worldwide 1 in 3 women and 1 in 12 men over the age of 50 have osteoporosis, and this is responsible for millions of fractures each year. In scientific studies Rats with osteoporosis were given a Boron supplement for 30 days with the result that their bone quality was then comparable with that of the healthy control group and of a group supplemented with estradiol (6).

The beneficial effect of Boron on bones seems to be due to two interrelated effects: a higher Boron content of the bones which makes them harder, and a normalization of sex hormones which stimulates the growth of new bone. Low estrogen levels after menopause are thought to be the main reason why so many older women develop osteoporosis. In men testosterone levels decline more gradually which seems to be reflected in their later onset of osteoporosis as a group.

Research has now shown that Boron supplementation in postmenopausal women doubles the blood level of the most active form of estrogen, 17-beta estradiol, to the level found in much younger women. Equally, the blood levels of testosterone more than doubled (7). Boron appears to BALANCE the levels of sex hormones. With ConventionalSynthetic Hormone Replacement Therapy there is a higher risk of breast or endometrial cancer which is NOT known to happen with hormones produced by the body as with Boron supplementation or with Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy.

Breast cancer is related to calcifications in the breast. Tests have shown that it is important to normalize the calcium-magnesium metabolism and cellular membrane functions within the body in order to reduce the risks of breast cancer.

A recent study in younger men (29 – 50) showed that the level of free testosterone (the form that matters most) had risen by one third after a daily supplementation borax for one week (8). This may be of special interest for bodybuilders. Research with Boron has shown that elevated testosterone levels are beneficial by shrinking prostate tumors and PSA levels, PSA being a marker for tumors and inflammation in the prostate gland.

Significantly improved memory and cognition in both sexes of elderly individuals may be partly due to increased levels of sex hormones and to improved membrane functions of the brain cells (9).


Being such an excellent fungicide it is not surprising that Borax is being successfully used to treat Candida overgrowth. There is a great deal of interesting information on an Earth Clinic forum called Borax Cures (10). Many contributors have written that it has completely cured or greatly helped them.

In normal healthy conditions Candida exists as harmless oval yeast cells. When challenged, chains of elongated cells called pseudohyphae develop, and finally strongly invasive long, narrow and tube-like filaments called hyphae. These damage the intestinal wall, and cause inflammation and Leaky Gut Syndrome.

Pseudohyphae and hyphae can be seen in the blood of individuals with cancer and autoimmune diseases. Candida can also form tough layers of biofilm. This same study shows that Borax inhibits the formation of biofilms and also the transformation of harmless yeast cells into invasive hyphal form. Other articles have shown that this process, commonly initiated by antibiotics, is a basic cause of most of our modern diseases, and this makes Borax and Boron primary health remedies. Boron is also used to remove accumulated fluoride and heavy metals from the body(14).

Fluoride not only causes bones and joints to deteriorate, but also the pineal gland to calcify and the thyroid gland to become underactive. Borax reacts with fluoride ions to form Boron fluorides which are then excreted in the urine.

While in good health and especially in younger years a calcium – magnesium ratio of 2:1 is normal and beneficial. But with increasing age, Boron deficiency and resulting disease conditions we REQUIRE progressively less calcium but more magnesium.

Boron is an important regulator of cell membrane functions, especially in regard to movements of calcium and magnesium. In Boron deficiency an excessive amount of calcium moves into the cell while magnesium is unable to move inside to displace the calcium.

This is the condition of old age; and all of the symptoms of boron-deficiency diseases leading up to it.

For Boron to be fully effective in reversing tissue calcification ample magnesium is required. For older individuals 400 to 600 mg of magnesium together with the daily Boron supplementation spaced out during the day. However, the correct form of oral Magnesium must be taken to avoid the usual laxative effect.

Sources strongly doubt whether calcium supplements are needed or even beneficial, even in case of osteoporosis. Tests show that most individuals have plenty of calcium (stored in their soft tissues where it does not belong), and supplementing Boron and Magnesium redeposit this misplaced calcium directly into bones.

Research has shown that the medical focus on high CALCIUM supplemental
intake is a prescription for ACCELERATED AGING…

…we CAN actually turn ourselves into ‘a walking coral reef’!

Long-standing severe calcification buildup cannot be redistributed in a short period of time while on Boron supplementation. Increased calcium levels in affected areas such as the hips and shoulders may cause problems for a considerable time, such as a tendency to severe cramping and pain, or problems with the blood circulation, or nerve transmission. Higher amounts of calcium and fluoride passing through the kidneys may cause temporary kidney pain. Further, kidney pain appears to be mainly due to kidney stones being released, after a few days when the stones are cleared the pain usually stops.

Such healing reactions cannot be avoided when aiming for a higher level of health, but they can be minimized by increasing boron levels only gradually. Whenever you experience an unpleasant effect reduce or temporarily stop boron intake until the problem subsides. Then gradually start increasing again. Helpful additional measures are a greatly increased fluid intake, using more organic acids such as lemon juice or vinegar, and improving lymph flow as with rebounding, walking or inverted positions.

WHAT AND HOW MUCH TO USE….here is where it clearly becomes a personal choice.

Like MANY other people, Sally Fallon the President and Founder of The Weston A. Price Organization, takes pure BORAX dissolved in water, [as I have detailed below], and has benefited greatly and reports excellent results. I too began to supplement with Borax and was experiencing much pain relief of my arthritis in a short period of time but I also began to experience gastrointestinal distress. (Perhaps I was taking too much, I was unable to find an amount of Borax that my body did not react to. I was forced to stop taking Borax.)

Signs of taking too much Borax are not being hungry, nausea, vomiting, lethargy, dermatitis and diarrhea. If you stop taking it for a day or so all of these symptoms will go away. The antidote for Boron toxicity is to consume extra B2.

Boron TABLETS can be bought from health shops or the Internet, commonly with 3 mg of Boron per tablet. While suitable as a general Boron supplement, it is not known if or how well Boron tablets work, Chelated Minerals are only 40% absorbable in the body. Most scientific studies and individual experiences in regard to arthritis, osteoporosis, or sexual hormones and menopause were with pure Ionic Borax.  It is not yet known if non-ionic Boron tablets are as effective as Borax… READ THE FULL STORY HERE:

      Thaanks! Eating Borax for breakfast and washing my clothes with oatmeal. Hope it helps…..

      • vaalix

        Its about as toxic as sea salt and baking soda likewise.

        • vaalix

          Its also in most of the food you eat especially vegetables. The problem is defiency of nutrients in GMO foods. They are stripping vital nutrients from all foods as we speak to cause mass onset of illness and disease. Basically they are trying to get rich by being in bed with pharma companies, and its a double edge sword for them because by doing this they can reduce life expectancy and its all approved and proper by the governments so pensions won’t have to be paid out since life expectancy is about 65 now not 85 or 90.. And you will have noticed they raised the age you can collect to 65 or 67 in canada, possibly higher in other countries.. Its all about money and a global soft kill.

          Borax is basically alkalized salt. but the healthy salt, not refined table salt with is the process of stripping nutrients from sea salt lol.. They put table salt-sodium in all foods, its basically poison much like refined sugar is.

        • 2QIK4U

          It’s a Cheapass crack and cocaine cutter for junkies to cheap to use baking soda. Also explains why brussel sprouts are disgusting. They’re 100% sodium sulphate which is what a fart is.

          • 2QIK4U

            Before you drop the end result of methane.

            • 2QIK4U

              When psych patients like kos have a tantrum they’ll inject you with sodium which instantly knocks you out. People don’t realise the salts of the earth are a drug.

      • santiago

        Borax do not agree with you: ” Although Kazakhstan a glorious country, it have a problem, too: economic, social, and Jew.”

      • 2QIK4U

        Smoke some and hold on

    • Antique White

      what? dude dont eat borax omg ? look into boron in a pharmaceutical supplement? taking borax out of the box cant be a cure for anything but a way to kill yourself? this one is just to goofy Lucy i am reporting this to myself!

      and its like 0.00001% needed you need to get your info from a biochemists not some half baked witch jerking retarded folks into the box?

      • vaalix

        In equal amounts, the sodium in your processed food is more poisonous. I personally don’t consume borax, but bicarb sodium is an essentially nutrient the body requires. They say we are 70% water, what they forget to tell you is that we are 70% salt water. That is why when you goto a hospital they give you saline, H2o + sea salt…

        • Antique White

      Tip Zero: I am not a Doctor. I am a mere longest-lived survivor of a little-known US Secret Gummint Project that attempted to pile a ton of then-incurable infectious diseases drawn directly from Mother Nature’s good earth into unsuspecting little childrens’ bodies, just to “see What Would Happen”, while putting the fear of a certain all-too-popular false god into the outspoken anti-war parents of said babies. It was called “Operation Mockingbird” fwiw – and it went FAR beyond what Wiki will allow to be published. (I tried and tried.)

      So: Fafty years of chronic over-the-top pain and medically-induced psyop-grade shaming passed before Just Everything busted out all at once. I sought Internal Medicine help at a big-name New England hospital and was promptly shunted off to the shrink-shop for five unnerving days of No Help Allowed. Once satisfied that the medical Industry was indeed clued-into an apparent list of recipients such as myself, I devastated the psychiatric model then in play and went home. I then took up to cure myself all by myself on my own sole authority using materials and tech that was non-existent Back in the Say. (See for the microscopy done at home that the doctors flat-out refused to consider undertaking – and freaked right out once confronted-with said images, ayup.)

      I succeeded. Thus was the Homemade Medicine of Reverend Walking Turtle born. ;) So here is what one Old Turtle has learned from “listening to Borax” since then:

      Tip One: Before taking-up with Borax supplementation, cleanse your bowels thoroughly. A pound of jumbo seeded red grapes a day for no more than four days while otherwise fasting will do that right fine.

      Tip Two: Stay AWAY from the Doctor once you have started supplementing with Boron until the reaction(s), exudations and ejections from the afflicted joints have all died down. DON’T PANIC. Running to the Doctor in the midst of the therapy will only earn one a reputation as a certifiable nut-case and just MIGHT get one perma-binned on-the-spot by those ever-zealous enemy agents of the Fascist Medical Industry as a Trade Protection tactic.

      Tip Three: If heavily yeast-infected (purple legs, leaky gut etc) in addition to the degraded bones and creaky joints, START SLOW instead of slamming-in. Dosing at half- or even a quarter od the suggested dosage will not cause resistance to develop, quite unlike the adverse action attendant with antibiotics. If determined to slam on in, prepare for some serious home-grown wound care as the consequent eruptions can be both painful and slow-healing due to the relative mass of infectious yeast cells versus human tissue in the afflicted area(s).

      Tip Four: Should constipation develop in mid-course, of COURSE reduce or stop the dosage while your tract clears again. The “Ten Herbs” supplement Bowel Conditioner/Laxative by Italian provider ESI (look for the green frog-on-toilet logo to be sure) is invaluable for the purpose – and can be replicated at home from bulk herbs plus the ingredients list on the back of the box. The manufactured product retails for about $8.00 US for forty pills, which makes for five to ten doses, depending. (Amazon and numerous other online suppliers are good places to obtain said commercial product as well as the formula’s component herbs, of course.)

      Outcome: My elbow, knee, finger and toe joints promptly threw out some Godawful scum, right up through the knuckles to the surface of the skin. Then the ingrown “Tinea Pedis” (aka Athlete’s Foot) colonies everted and vomited-out their own poison in the same way. I used a foot-bath of veterinary-strength Miconazole 1% shampoo, shredded Dial Soap and Chlorhexidine Gluconate 2% plus a good dollop of DMSO in an oval crock-pot of CLEAN water as an anti-adhesive+anti-fungal finishing soak; that “clinically incurable” infectionbed of ingrown callus and dreck readily softened and then (more slowly) loosened over time, stubborn and slow but SURE.

      Tech: Just Keep AT it. NO interruptions allowed! THIS is REAL, ROOT-CAUSE MEDICINE. Arrange matters to make SURE the ignorant ones all around you stay OUT of your own non-mainstream health-restoration picture, Beloved!

      Net Result: These days, literally a scant few grains of borax – the tiniest of tiny pinches – in the morning carafe of coffee is all that’s called for as maintenance. I am entirely free of pain in joints and tissues alike. This approach was not easy, instant nor sugar-coated – but it certainly has proved well worth my while.

      Fact: I feel I have added thirty happy years to my life expectancy and ever so much better “quality of life” at that! Abandon fear and its disciples; gp with common sense instead. Your happy good health awaits. And that is all. 0{:-)o[

      Borax makes good hand cleaner. My dad used it several times a day for many years because he was a mechanic. He started working when he was 14 and retired when he was 74. He’s now 85 and he’s still healthy and active. I know skin absorbs things, so besides carb cleaner, gasoline and oil, his skin was absorbing borax. Perhaps it has played a role in his good health and long life.

      Having read this story, and reflected on my dad’s use of borax as a hand cleaner, I’ve decided to use it for washing my hands too. I just washed my hands with borax about a half hour ago, and one thing I notice is my hands feel softer than normal.

      MS Bardot, if Boron produces estrogen then wouldn’t it be harmful to males?
