Why I’m Taking Boron

Boron Cures Arthritis, Boosts Testosterone, Detoxes Fluoride. (Fluoride causes arthritis, and lowers testosterone.)

Boron cures arthritis, makes stronger bones, kills germs, detoxes fluorides, boosts testosterone, stimulates the brain, and is an anti inflammatory, anti fungal, anti biotic, anti viral.

There seems to be less information out there on boron than on iodine. There are 100 iodine literate doctors. Not sure if there are boron doctors. And yet, one of the original iodine doctors, Dr. Flechas, has a lecture on boron, too.


Boron is a trace mineral found in borax, 20 Mule Team Laundry additive. In the box, the only ingredient is “sodium tetraborate”. That’s a sodium and 4 boron atoms. So, it’s like salt, sodium chloride, and it’s like baking soda, sodium bicarbonate. Borax is actually safer than table salt. Like baking soda, boron is alkalising.

Boron cures arthritis. Boron makes the bones a lot harder and stronger.

Boron is antifungal and antibacterial. In contrast, most doctor antibiotics are made of fungals and cause fungal infections.

Boron detoxes fluorides. Fluoride lowers testosterone, so boron increases testosterone. Boron directly binds to fluoride in many ways. See


Boron is taken up by the parathyroid and helps the body make a hormone that regulates calcium and magnesium metablolism, keeping more of both of the other minerals in the body, and helping them to be better utilized.

So, boron is like iodine in many ways. Iodine is another trace mineral. Iodine is taken up by the thyroid to make hormones. Iodine also detoxes fluoride. Iodine also boosts testosterone. Iodine is also an antifungal and antibacterial.

Boron, in killing fungals, and boosting testosterone, also cures and prevents prostate cancer. (along with iodine and zinc which also cure and prevent prostate cancer) (And for prostate issues, I would add Sal Palmetto, too.)

I found two notes from people who claimed that the high iodine protocol made them boron deficient, which resulted in vitiligo, a white pigmentation in the skin, something like what Michael Jackson had. That can be prevented, and/or cured with boron. I learned about this, in part, when I read a woman who had partly cured her own vitiligo with diatomateous earth.

I first started taking boron in Jan. 2016, at 3mg/day. I had read “the borax conspiracy” (linked below) and soon started taking up to 9/mg/day aiming for 20. (I was taking 3 x 3mg boron capsules.) I got a herx reaction, a candida die off and got sick and congested for about the first 6 days I was taking it. It also made me a bit mentally stimulated, and anxious. I could also tell boron was good for my joints; almost like drinking a green smoothie and stretching, but not quite. Just a bit different, but it did make my joints feel stronger. I had not written much in a while, but the day I took it, I wrote 7000 words of some of my past traumas. Mental stimulation and power, indeed!

I was also having a recurring foot fungal rash, and that slowly began to be controlled and eliminated when taking boron and iodine. Now, in the fall of 2017, a year and a half after starting boron and iodine, I no longer get fungal foot rashes at all; none in the last 6 months, and this was a plague of a lifetime on me.

I started on iodine a month after starting boron, Feb., 2016, which calmed me down, and gave me far greater control of my own brain. In fact, when I started iodine, I was having up to 100 suicidal thoughts a day, nearly a constant stream of them, and that could have been due to the boron stimulating fluoride detoxing, and iodine deficiency combined. One single drop of Iodine stopped the suicidal thoughts immediately!

What I think the boron may have been doing, not only killing internal fungals, but also boron may have been detoxing me from fluoride a bit too fast. Since then, I’ve stopped boron cold, and gone back to it, a few times. Boron can make me a bit depressed and anxious. However, eventually it no longer did so, and I believe it was because I was well past killing any fungals within, and very clean of any remaining fluorides, and at that point, I started taking more.

Elsewhere on the net, (earthclinic.com below) I discovered another boron protocol, of 1/4 teaspoon borax in a liter of water, which is just over 100 mg/day of boron. Well, I worked up past that, to a full teaspoon of boron, which is just over 400mg of boron. Some people report kidney pains at the 100mg/day of boron, and it could be that they are overloading their kidneys with too much other mineral or heavy metal displacement, or too much fluoride removal all at once. So, I think it’s better to slowly acclimate to more over time, to get you well past the detox reactions. I am NOT recommending that anyone start with 100 mg/day of boron, nor do I recommend 400mg. I just thought I would try that, and I did, for about a week, with no adverse symptoms; no headaches, and no kidney problems.

The way I take boron is in my morning coffee with iodine and selenium. I put in about 1/4 teaspoon of borax, too. And milk. And add cinnamon. Oddly, this combination make it all taste rather sweet, but no sweetners are needed. Without the cinnamon, the borax smells like old socks. With the cinnamon, it tastes sweet and rich.

Looking further, I found that boron cures the kidneys. So it’s not the “burden of boron” that is causing people kidney problems; I think it must be the detox of either fluorides, or other things.

At 20-30 mg/day of boron, arthritis reportedly clears up within about 3 weeks.

Quoted from:


“the relationship between soil boron levels and arthritis. He found, for instance that the traditional sugarcane islands, due to long-term heavy use of fertilizers, have very low soil-boron levels. Jamaica has the lowest level and arthritis rates are about 70%. He noted that even most dogs were limping. Next comes Mauritius with very low boron levels and 50% arthritis. The daily boron intake in these countries is less than 1 mg/day. An interesting comparison is between Indian and native Fijians. The Indians are estimated to have an arthritis rate of about 40% and eat much rice grown with fertilizer while the native Fijians with an estimated arthritis rate of 10% eat mainly starchy root vegetables grown privately without fertilizer.

The US, England, Australia and New Zealand generally have average soil-boron levels with an estimated intake of 1 to 2 mg of boron and arthritis rates of about 20%. But Carnarvon in Western Australia has high boron levels in soil and water, and the arthritis rate is only 1%. It is similar in a place called Ngawha Springs in New Zealand with very high boron levels in the spa water which is curative for arthritis. Actually all spas reputedly curing arthritis have very high boron levels. These are also high in Israel with an estimated daily boron intake of 5 to 8 mg and only 0.5 – 1% arthritis.

Bone analysis showed that arthritic joints and nearby bones had only half the boron content of healthy joints. Equally, synovial fluid that lubricates joints and provides nutrients to the cartilage is boron deficient in arthritic joints. After boron supplementation bones were much harder than normal and surgeons found them more difficult to saw through. With additional boron bone fractures heal in about half the normal time in both man and animal.”

Now I see where a “theraputic” dose of 20mg/day of boron comes from: “Derivation of a UL. The NOAEL for developmental effects in rats is 9.6 mg/kg/day. The UL for boron is calculated by dividing the NOAEL of 9.6 mg/kg/day by the UF of 30, resulting in an UL of 0.3 mg/kg/day. This value was multiplied by the average of the reference body weights for adult women, 61 kg, from Chapter 1 (Table 1-1). The resulting UL for adults is rounded to 20 mg/day.” /// But the minimum observed negative effect (increase in fetal malformations ) in rats was 13mg/kg/day, which, for a man like me, would be x 100 as I’m 100kg, which would be 1,300 mg/day, which would be 4 teaspoons of borax. I’ve only pushed it up to 1 teaspoon. over a year. To get to their safe number of 20 mg, they use the lowest safe number, 9.6 mg/day, and then divide by 30, just to be extra safe.

  1. Thank you for this information Jason. I was taking Borax over a year ago, the stopped, and subsequently had forgotten all about it, so this is the perfect reminder.
