Boron, or Boron in English, is a semi-metallic element found in small amounts in the earth's crust. Boron is less abundant than most other elements, but its compounds are often very stable and difficult to break down, making it an important part of the chemical composition of the soil. [wiki] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boron)
Boron is used in a variety of ways such as glass, pyrotechnics and rocket fuel, nuclear technology, cosmetics, cleaning and composite materials in the aerospace industry. But what I want to talk about today is its health benefits as a dietary supplement, controversial because of the Rockefeller-controlled pharmaceutical industry and their smear campaigns against non-patentable supplements and alternative health options. Since Boron is just an element, it cannot be patented.
Boron is distributed throughout the body with the highest concentration in the parathyroid glands, followed by bone and tooth enamel. It is essential for healthy skeletal and joint functions and regulates the absorption of calcium, magnesium and phosphorus through its action on the parathyroid glands.
Boron is to the parathyroid glands what iodine is to the thyroid.
What is the parathyroid gland?
The parathyroid gland, also known as pancreas, is a gland located behind the stomach that has an important role in the body's metabolism and regulation of blood sugar. The parathyroid gland has two main functions:
- Production of hormones: The parathyroid gland produces hormones, including insulin and glucagon, which regulate blood sugar levels in the body.
- Exocrine functions: The parathyroid gland also produces enzymes that help break down food in the stomach, including enzymes that break down proteins, fats, and carbohydrates.
Parathyroid hormone production is important to avoid both high and low blood sugar levels, and the exocrine system helps meet the body's need for nutrition. A disease such as pancreatitis, which causes inflammation of the parathyroid gland, can affect its function and lead to serious health problems.
Many people currently suffer from gluten intolerance and Candida, which in turn inhibits mineral uptake, creating chronic intestinal diseases. Health problems due to lack of boron are very common today.
Due to its content, borax or boric acid has essentially the same health benefits, with good antiseptic and antifungal, antiviral properties, but only mild antibacterial action. In both plants and animals, boron is important for the health and function of cell walls, and the transmission of signals across membranes.
Lack of boron causes the parathyroid gland to become overactive and releases too much of the parathyroid hormone, which increases acidity and the need for calcium, which leaks from bones and teeth. It leads to osteoarthritis and other forms of arthritis, osteoporosis and caries. With age, high blood levels of calcium lead to calcification of soft tissues causing muscle contractions and stiffness; calcification of endocrine glands, especially the pineal gland and ovaries; atherosclerosis, kidney stones and calcification of the kidneys that ultimately lead to kidney failure.
Boron deficiency in combination with magnesium deficiency is particularly harmful to bones and teeth.
Boron also affects the metabolism of steroid hormones, especially sex hormones. It increases low testosterone levels in men and estrogen levels in menopausal women. Other beneficial effects have been reported, such as improvement in heart problems, vision, psoriasis, balance, memory and cognition.
Boron compounds have antitumor properties and are: "powerful anti-osteoporotic, anti-inflammatory, lipid-lowering, anticoagulant and anti-neoplastic agents." Dr. Paul-Gerhard Seeger's research shows how cancer often begins with deterioration of cell membranes. Since boron is essential for cell membranes, there may be a direct relationship between boron deficiency and tumor growth.
What is arthritis?
Arthritis is a ubiquitous disease that affects the joints and causes pain, swelling, stiffness and limitation of movement. Arthritis is a collection of over 100 different diseases that all affect the joints in some way.
The most common types of arthritis include osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, and gout. Osteoarthritis is the most prevalent form of arthritis and is caused by wear and tear on articular cartilage. Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic disease that causes inflammation of the joints and can lead to damage to the joints and other parts of the body. Psoriatic arthritis is a form of arthritis that is associated with the skin disease psoriasis, while gout is a form of arthritis caused by an excessive buildup of uric acid in the body.
Arthritis can affect people of all ages and is more common in older people. Treatment for arthritis varies depending on the type of disease and the severity of the symptoms, but can include things like medications, physical therapy, surgery, and lifestyle changes.
Cures for Arthritis by Rex Newnham
In 1960, Dr. Rex Newnham, a scientist from Perth, Australia, developed arthritis.
He realized that conventional drugs were not helpful, so he searched for the remedy in plant chemicals. He noticed that plants growing in the Perth area lacked many minerals. Since boron was known to help plants' calcium metabolism, he decided to try it. He started by taking 30 milligrams of borax a day and after three weeks all pain, swelling and stiffness had disappeared.
He told public health authorities about his discovery, but they weren't interested. Some other people with arthritis were fond because they also improved, but others were too afraid to drink something labeled as poison and meant to kill cockroaches and ants. Eventually, he manufactured pills that contained a safe and effective amount of borax.
Five years later, he sold 10,000 bottles a month and used only word of mouth as marketing. He could no longer keep up with the demand and asked a pharmaceutical company to market the product. That was a big mistake. They suggested that this would replace more expensive drugs and reduce their profits. Representatives who served on state health committees in 1981 arranged an Australian ordinance declaring boron and its compounds to be toxic in any concentration. He was fined $1,000 for selling poison, and the new law successfully stopped the development of his cure for arthritis in Australia.
He later published several scientific papers on borax and arthritis. One was a double-blind study in the mid-80s at the Royal Melbourne Hospital, which showed how 70% of patients who completed the study improved significantly. Only 12% improved on placebo. There were no negative side effects, but some also reported improvements in their heart disease and their health in general, including less fatigue.
Most of his later research concentrated on the relationship between boron levels in the soil and arthritis. He found, for example, that the traditional sugarcane islands, due to long-term heavy use of artificial fertilizers, have very low boron levels in the soil. Jamaica has the lowest level, and the arthritis rate there is about 70%. He noted that even most dogs limped. Mauritius has second place with very low boron levels and 50% arthritis.
The United States, England, Australia and New Zealand have average boron levels in the soil with an estimated intake of 1-2 mg boron and arthritis rates of approximately 20%. But Carnarvon in Western Australia has high boron levels in soil and water, and arthritis rates are only 1%. The relationship is similar in a place called Ngawha Springs, in New Zealand, with very high boron levels in the spa water used as a cure for arthritis. In fact, all spas that are said to cure arthritis have very high boron levels. These are also high in Israel, where the estimated daily boron intake among the population is 5-8 mg, and the incidence of arthritis is only 0.5-1%.
Bone analysis showed that the bones of arthritic joints had only half the boron content of healthy joints. Similarly, the synovial fluid that lubricates the joints and nourishes the cartilage was boron deficiency in arthritic joints. After boron supplementation, the bones regained their strength and hardness. Bone fractures in both humans and animals that took boron healed in about half the usual time. Horses and dogs with broken bones, or even a broken pelvis, have fully recovered.
Borax is also effective with other forms of arthritis, such as rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile arthritis, and lupus (systemic lupus erythematosus). Dr. Newnham saw a nine-month-old girl with juvenile arthritis and was able to cure her in two weeks.
He wrote that people could often get rid of pain, swelling and stiffness in about one to three months. They can then reduce treatment from three to one boron tablet (3 mg each) per day to prevent arthritis from returning. He also stated that rheumatoid arthritis patients often experienced a Herxheimer reaction and that this is always a good prognostic sign. If they were to continue treatment for another two to three weeks, the pain, swelling and stiffness should disappear.
What is Osteoporosis?
Osteoporosis is a disease that affects bone tissue and makes bones fragile and more prone to breakage. Over time, osteoporosis can lead to fractures of the spine, wrists and other bones.
Osteoporosis is a common disease that affects many older people. It is a disease that develops slowly over time and is caused by a decrease in bone mass and a deterioration in bone structure. Risk factors for osteoporosis include age, gender (women are particularly at risk), family history, smoking, poor diet and inactivity.
The treatment of osteoporosis focuses on preventing future fractures and improving bone health. This can include lifestyle changes such as eating a diet rich in calcium and vitamin D, increasing physical activity, and avoiding smoking. Drugs such as bisphosphonates and calcium and vitamin D supplements may also be used. It is important to seek medical attention if you suspect you have osteoporosis, as early treatment can help prevent future fractures and improve bone health.
An estimated 55% of Americans over the age of 50 have osteoporosis, and of these, about 80% are women. Worldwide, one in three women and one in twelve men over the age of 50 may have osteoporosis, a condition that causes millions of fractures each year. After rats with osteoporosis received a boron supplement for 30 days, their bone quality was comparable to that of the healthy control group, and the group was supplemented with estradiol.
The benefits of boron on bones appear to be due to two interrelated effects:
- A higher boron content in the legs, which makes them harder
- Normalization of sex hormones, which in turn stimulates new bone growth
Low estrogen levels after menopause are perhaps the main reason why so many older women develop osteoporosis. In men, testosterone levels decrease more gradually, which may explain the later onset of osteoporosis in this group.
Research has now shown that boron supplementation in postmenopausal women doubles the level of the most active form of estrogen, 17-beta-estradiol, to the level found in women on estrogen replacement therapy. Likewise, testosterone levels more than doubled. 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 is the case with borax supplements.
Some women have premenstrual problems due to estrogen levels being too high and progesterone too low, and therefore they may be afraid to use boron. However, I found no evidence that boron increases estrogen above normal, healthy levels.
Since boron increases the levels of growth hormones, there is an increased calcium absorption in the bones. A study with men showed that levels of free testosterone had risen by a third after a daily supplement of about 100 mg of borax over a week.
Boron can keep sex hormones in balance, much in the same way that maca root powder does. Maca acts on the pituitary gland, not only to increase but also to balance our sex hormones and seems to stimulate our progesterone production as well.
Contrary to the medical perception of prostate cancer, boron research has shown that high testosterone levels are beneficial in reducing prostate tumors and PSA levels, an indicator of prostate tumors and inflammation. Boron has also significantly improved memory and cognition among the elderly.
