Has anyone tried germanium as a supplement? Is it quackery? I stumbled across this in my research for lead toxicity.

I would be very careful about taking germanium per the following article:
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9237323

Renal failure (or even slight problems) isn't something to take lightly...

Another avenue of research is to read up on Geranium essential oil and how it is used.  Most essential oils are applied topically or diffused and all of these are only "therapeutic grade oils".

It does not have to be ingested to be effective.

The site is http://www.anandaapothecary.com.  They always err on the side of caution.  This has been my experience and they are very helpful with answering questions.

Geranium does NOT equal Germanium...

Geranium is a flower.

Germanium is a metal.

Joe, one thing for sure, the geranium is good for just about anything else according to the web site. Maybe I need to get some of it! Who knows, they might find sooner or later that it actually can lift the heavy metals right out of the body! I've lived long enough not to be surprised at any remedy that might be lurking right under our nose! I like to think that there is one for everything somewhere. It makes life a lot more interesting.

I still say check out Ananda essential oils.  Yes, I mistook the "m" for an "n".  I was just on the site.

Geranium (the flower) will not obviously address lead toxicity but it a very effective anti-bacterial and anti-inflammation oil along with many other "therapeutic grade" essential oils that are beneficial.

Live and learn.

I agree.  It is another modality of healing that we can consider.

I just saw this "germanium" for the first time in something I read about mangosteen. You might look at that. Often the body regulates intakes of foods better than supplements.

Quoted Text
Garlic is one of the most potent antimicrobial agents. It was used by Albert Schweitzer to treat amebic dysentery and by Louis Pasteur as an antibacterial. It has been shown to be effective against all but two of 26 strains of candida albicans. The March 1985 issue of Scientific American reported that garlic was effective against 200 varieties of pathogenic fungi. Garlic is one of the richest sources of the element germanium, a potent inducer of interferon and effective against certain cancers by modulating the immune response. Parsley and fennel can be taken concomitantly to offset the strong odor associated with its use. (Caulfield)



My body happens to be calling for tons of garlic right now!

Nice! I wonder if it's BT/GT specific.

Garlic is in the superbene column for all bloodtypes in the "Cancer" series book.
