Dear

Chemical burns are possible with use of XXXXXXX cidar vinegar. The chemical burns take pretty long time to heal.

You should clean the burn surface daily before applying the cream and should apply the cream at least twice daily.

All the best.

Sincerely

I contracted HPV 6 months ago and I want to clean out my system and boost my immune system. I purchased a mineral cleanser for my colon, apple cidar vinegar tablets, echinacea & goldenseal for immune system, and a chlorophyll concentrate called chloroxygen to oxygenate the blood. Would you recommend taking these in a particular order for best results? Is chloroxygen a good product?

Hi, I have very dark brown discharge (going to blackish) at the beginning of my period. This has been happening for about two years. I had my pap smear test twice, and also had D&C twice, and what was removed from the uterus lining was sent for test and the results came out okey. For all these 2 years my period was coming earlier and irregularly like 14 days, 21 days, but this month it has started on the 30th day. What does the discharge mean? What does the frequent periods mean?
