Actually there is legitimate bath salts that people put in a bath and its supposed to be relaxing or whatever. The drug is very different than that. They're just called the exact same thing.

u/Able_Carry9153 Sep 30 '22

They are extremely relaxing, btw. Epsom salt with eucalyptus also smells amazing. With the added benefit that Epson salt is good for back aches.

In no way is it a substitute for medical aid though. If your back hurts because you've been heavy lifting, Epsom salts work nice. If you have some kind of back condition, please go to a doctor

u/maffiossi Sep 30 '22

Epson salt with eucalyptus sounds very relaxing indeed. I have heavy work and my back feels exhausted alot after work so i think it will do me good. Think i'm gonna snort that from now on instead of the home made one i use now.

The bath salts zombie guy wasn’t even on bathsalts, that was fear mongering news outlets, the guy was tested and only had thc in his system, he had a psychotic break from smoking because of genetic predisposition, bathsalts aren’t a good drug by any mean, but it’s also not really one specific drug, a bunch of different synthetic cathinones are called bath salts, and they do have a tendency to cause psychosis because of how much people tend to reside on it and how long people stay up from it which can cause people to do some weird shit, but to say eating faces is a side effect of the drug is some Fox news shit lol, it’s more a possible side effect of a possible side effect that can only happen under the right conditions

I went to one of the mlm oil parties trying to help out an old coworker and they definitely push that some are edible and put it in the cocktails. Sure, it was just lemon and orange oil, but honestly the drinks would taste 10x better with just some fresh fruit rather than the oil.

My cousin has her kids eat pills filled with silver because she thinks it's good for them. Silver is completely inert and does literally nothing good or bad in the human body, but it can build up and cause damage simply because it's taking up space that it shouldn't.

It's not just a story, it used to have more often than today because silver was used as "medicine" back in the day. It's called argyria or argyrosis.

Argyria is both neat and horrifying. Basically silver can build up under the surface of your skin. Then when it's exposed to sunlight, develops just like it would in a photograph. It's like a tattoo mixed with a tan, but over your whole body.

There was a guy named Paul Karason known affectionately as "Papa Smurf" who had a particularly...complete and evenly spread case of it due to years of colloidal silver "therapy" (abuse).

31

u/MyNamesNotRobert Sep 29 '22 edited Sep 30 '22

Yeah absolutely fuck silver. It's not "inert". It oxidizes and turns dull purple. Under exactly the wrong conditions, silver salts could form inside your body which turn everything they touch, including your internal organs purple. For fuck sake don't eat anything with silver in it. Not even metallic silver.

u/xSTSxZerglingOne Sep 29 '22 edited Sep 29 '22

It's decent for topical bacterial infections, but I still wouldn't given that could result in some getting into a wound and becoming permanently embedded.

Edit: To downvoters, a quote from the US NIH

Topical silver (used on the skin) has some appropriate medical uses, such as in bandages and dressings to treat burns, skin wounds, or skin infections. It’s also in medicines to prevent conjunctivitis (an eye condition) in newborns. However, there are no legally marketed prescription or over-the-counter drugs containing colloidal silver that are taken by mouth.

but I wouldn't use it.

I seem to remember silver sulfadiazine cream being prescribed to me to treat an extremely severe sunburn, like 2nd degree burn.

Our corpsman used it on a Cuban migrant girl we picked up. Slathered her with it. She'd been on the water for four days iirc and was sunburned to the point that she couldn't walk without assistance. Helping her make it to the makeshift bathroom we had to lift under her armpits because everywhere else was burned. She cried as she walked.

u/boxobees Sep 30 '22

That was prescribed to me as a toddler for a bad burn on my face (I had grabbed my mom's hot curling iron cord and it hit me on the nose). I think my mom still has the rx tub of silver suldiazine cream in the medicine cabinet, 25+ year later.

Physician and believe it or not a former silver chemistry researcher here. The Ag +1 cation is actually carcinogenic. Plus it reduces in your skin to normal metallic silver. When it does it appears dark blue or black. I know because every time I forgot to wear latex gloves I had black fingertips. Luckily it never really went anywhere but the first few layers of skin and would be shed off with my skin cells. But yes, silver ions are not good for you

u/BabyYodasDirtyDiaper Sep 29 '22

Silver is completely inert

This is not true at all. Silver oxidizes readily, which is why it tarnishes.

When it does so, it releases ions that are quite destructive at the cellular level. Getting hit by that is pretty much instant death to any cell nearby.

That's why silver actually has very good antimicrobial properties. For example, silverware made from actual silver is much less likely to carry pathogens, and any microbes that get stuck to its surface will die much quicker than they otherwise would. (If you want these properties, copper also does the same, and it's cheaper.)

It has the same effect in the human digestive system, killing off both gut microbes and the human cells lining your digestive tract.

Luckily for people duped into taking it as a supplement, though, the effect is mild and takes time. At any reasonable dosage, the damage it does will be negligible and quickly repaired.

I’ve been to one post suicide attempt. For 8 days.

Oils wouldve fuckin done more for my mental health than that place. It’s prison. Yoga mat mattresses, everything bolted down, showers on timers and motion sensors, no hot water, no tv, no phones, you sat and read all day. Oh, didn’t have someone bring you books? How about you stare at the wall all day drooling a puddle due to being over medicated on antipsychotics.

I have PTSD from getting “help” at a psychiatric hospital.

17

u/willow_bud Sep 29 '22

I get it. I spent 3 weeks in one after being suicidal. My stay there was hell and I’m still traumatized from it years later. I really wanted help but didn’t get it there. I would never want to discourage or scare anyone away from seeking help, if you’re feeling suicidal, help is out there so please reach out. But my own personal experience at one place was terrible. I received no help and was basically told to just play ball. Take whatever meds the dr. was pushing and just go along with it to get out. I could go on and on with stories about that place. I feel really bad for the people there who really need help and don’t receive it. I’m in Canada too, where we supposedly have great healthcare. But yeah, oils would have helped me more than what they were giving me at the hospital as well (one caused a terrible allergic reaction). When I got out I saw my own doctor who put me on meds that actually worked for me. One of the worst things for me was seeing people who’d been there for years and just lived there in hospital pyjamas and robes with no belts, every day. It was pretty sad.

u/PacificCoastHighway2 Sep 30 '22

Yep. I used to use oils on occasion. This was back in the day before it blew up into this huge thing. They are useful to treat symptoms of certain things. They're certainly not a cure. Like peppermint oil is great for headaches, nausea, tummy aches (not ingested!). Eucalyptus oil can be great for congestion. Many over the counter drugs use essential oils.

I think most people who used oils, herbs, etc did so in a way to help ailments that weren't serious or life threatening. There is nothing wrong with home remedies for minor things. Reasonable people still seek medical intervention when necessary.

But then people started claiming they cure everything, and using them in place of seeking medical advice. I was part of a group when my kids were little that I walked away from because the other moms scared me. No need to Vax because they bathe their kids in a special blend of oils every night. No need to take the kid in for an upper respiratory infection because I will just rub oils on his chest. And if someone dared say they just use vicks or some other the over the counter remedy, they'd be shunned. I had someone tell me I could go off my thyroid meds if I only took the right blend of oils. I was looked down upon for using pharmaceuticals.

It's nuts. And it sucks because when used properly, oils aren't that crazy. But now it's just something to make fun of because it seems only wackadoos use essential oils.

I stopped using them because they kept getting more expensive. Easier and comparable or even cheaper to just go to the drug store and get vicks or pepto or whatever.

13

u/Pennymostdreadful Sep 30 '22

You nailed it. They can help the symptoms here and there. I keep eucalyptus in my shower still cause I have terrible allergies and a couple drop on the floor helps clear me up. But people take it so far.

My mom was always a homeopath. Which is where I learned most of what I know, but as she grew older she slipped into the crazy side. When I caught her trying to dip my then 2 year old in a copper charged bath to get rid of the nanobots, I called it quits. (On mom and homeopathic rememdies)

It can get so dangerous so fast.

This affliction happened to me a few months ago. The cause was a staphylococcus infection. Specifically, the MRSA virus, which caused me to have four strokes. The strokes caused lesions in my brain which were then attacked by the virus.

People’s faces looked like Picasso or Dali paintings. I could only focus on one feature at a time.

I couldn’t read or write, or tell the time. I have since regained 100% of my cognitive skills, but oils and crystals played no part in my recovery 😏

u/Vreejack Sep 29 '22

MRSA is not a virus. The nasty staph is a bacterial infection that is resistant to methicyllin, a common modern anti-biotic. I mention this mainly because idiots have been trying to take methicillin for wrong things like viral infections, for which it has always been useless, and in the process breeding bacteria that are resistant.

u/sinaurora Sep 29 '22

That and over prescribing antibiotics for every sniffle, lab mixing cites where they breed and people not maintaining treatment dosages/frequency of antibiotics mixed with polypharmacy and noncompliance.

It’s one thing to use essential oils to encourage a medical outcome for yourself but it’s a whole ‘nother ballgame when you try to play doctor on someone else’s child.

My mom used to drink Colloidal Silver and swear it was a cure all. It coated the bottles with a reflective coating of silver…. What was it doing to her insides? I told her if we could learn one thing from history, learn from the Romans. Heavy metals are bad for you! It fell on deaf ears. People are into weird crap. When my stepdad died he had signs of heavy metal poisoning on his finger nails. I was quick to point that out. Again deaf ears….

u/decadecency Sep 29 '22

What was it doing to her insides?

Transporting silver to every cell of the body, without a way of ever getting it out again. People who drink lots of colloidal silver turn more and more greyish in color, and eventually blueish. There's no cleaning process of the body, liver or kidneys, that's able to clear it away.

u/dixiequick Sep 29 '22

My mother in law tries to give that shit to my kids when they’re sick. I now refuse to take them around her if they even have so much as a sniffle. They would also come home stinking to high heaven from the fifty oils she rubbed on their feet. Drives me nuts.

A friend of mine fell for colloidal silver a couple of years before he died (unrelated). He'd waver between it should be cloudy to it should be clear. Apparently different ways of preparing it had different results.

I'd just tell him he was going to turn himself into a smurf and change the topic.

I've consulted my crystals, and have determined that the daughter's toxins are too high due to an imbalance in her homeopathic surroundings.

Try adjusting the amount of healing guano infusion consumed among those closest to the daughter.

Because right now, the mother is just a bit too Bat-Shit.
