Do's and Don'ts

Strep throat can be a horrible condition to have to contend with. Often it can be described as 'swallowing razor blades'.  I have personally been hospitalized with it - let's examine closer.


This condition is an incredibly painful sore throat that can sometimes have cold or flu like symptoms with it. This infection is contagious.

In addition, the side of my neck was so swollen it was like having a second head growing ... scary stuff!  I know a lot about this first hand, and likely even something you don't know.

Strep in the knee(s)

Believe it or not, strep in the knee is very common.  I help people with this all the time.  (A quick Simple Health Test can tell you if you have it or not AND what you can use.)  The cause is most always from a previous knee injury.  The remedy for this almost always 10 congaplex per day.

I fell on the ice landing on my knee as a kid. For 10 years following I never knew I had 'strep in my knee', the medical profession didn't either.

They performed an arthiscope to determine what was wrong (a very painful procedure.) I had a small amount of fluid in my knee; it would swell, causing pain, stiffness and the inability to thoroughly move it.

Often, the cold or damp weather, including a walk down the freezer isle in my local grocery store would trigger swelling. As would the car vents blowing cold air on my knee. 

The Do's and Don'ts

Avoid all dairy products. My favorite home remedy to use is GSE by NutriBiotic; a grapefruit seed extract (liquid drops). You can mix this into juice and use a natural antibiotic up to 30 drops per day, divided up of course into 3 or 4 doses.

Hint- only orange juice, preferably fresh squeezed, will kill the horrible taste!!

You can also gargle with warm water and salt (of course feel free to add a few drops of GSE to this) and use many times daily as needed but do not swallow this mixture. Very powerful to help stop the pain immediately, but temporarily.

Not only for your throat and knee(s), but ear infections too.  A great product to cleanse your toothbrush with also.  And the bottle lasts for a good 6 months to a year if used regularly too.   A good investment.

GSE is great for washing pesticides from fruits and vegetables too (it can change the color of your fruit, don't be alarmed; it's just working.)

My Personal #1 Recommended Health Products:

  • Congaplex capsules (Standard Process) useful for throat and knees
  • Spanish Black Raddish tablets (Standard Process) useful with severe sore throats to elevate pain quickly, can be combined and used with the Congaplex and or GSE too to help kick start the process
  • GSE - as mentioned above, but sometimes not quite strong enough to get the job done in some strep throat situations

(Do a quick Simple Health Test to find out which product would work best.)

I am happy to announce today; I have had no recurrences of strep which often happens as a result of never really getting rid of it completely.  The last couple of incidents were minimal in comparison until finally nothing for years now.  

I have read about people who simply 'tough it out' completely, it builds a strong natural immunity but I was either too wimpy or felt I was too bad off for that; I guess I took the middle ground.
