The jaundiced yellowing of the eyes of a person with liver disease is a good reminder of how the eyes are intimately connected to the liver.

Natural Remedies for Behcet’s Disease


Behcet’s Disease is classified as an inflammatory disorder and as an autoimmune condition. Symptoms of Behcet’s include sores on the mucous membranes in the mouth and on other areas of the body, eye inflammation, and arthritis symptoms. Many patients with Behcet’s disease also have very serious digestive issues that are often diagnosed as a secondary autoimmune disease known as ulcerative colitis. A number of Behcet’s patients also experience painful headaches as a result of this disease. Scientists have noted that the headache is “vascular”, but headaches can also be caused by autonomic nervous system imbalance or brain inflammation.


Is Behcet’s Disease Curable?

Researchers in China have identified infectious pathogens that are likely causing this so-called autoimmune condition. Indeed, scientists who are studying different autoimmune conditions like psoriasis, lupus, ankylosing spondylitis, Reiter’s syndrome, and more have discovered compelling links between colonizing bacteria that take up residence deep inside organs where they aren’t contagious to others, but where they hijack the immune system to cause the uncomfortable symptoms associated with Behcet’s disease. In this article, we discuss in greater detail the link between autoimmune disease and infection.

The scientists in China used sophisticated bio-detecting technologies to find evidence of the following types of viruses and bacteria that cause Behcet’s disease including:

  • Streptococcus sanguis
  • Staphylococcus aureus
  • Herpes virus
  • Bacteria in the intestinal flora

An entirely different team of researchers notes that an important bacterial trigger that causes Behcet’s disease is streptococcal bacteria.

The link between a viral or bacterial infection in the body and Behcet’s disease is similar to scientific findings in psoriasis a related autoimmune skin disease. Often, patients with autoimmune diseases are able to cure Behcet’s disease and other disease by using a Reactive Oxygen Species medicine with pH therapy to kill pathogens that aren’t able to be reached using the antibiotics that a doctor would prescribe. The liver, you see, breaks down antibiotics so that they can be removed from the body, so patients must use a natural, oxygen-based treatment to kill the pathogens that are causing the disease. Oxygen-based Reactive Oxygen Species medicines are able to pass into the liver and gallbladder unchanged to kill pathogens. And pH therapy potentiates the Reactive Oxygen Species medicines to make them more powerful.

Lugol’s Iodine as a Cure for Behcet’s Disease

Lydian and I are currently doing research on a list of about one hundred autoimmune diseases. Behcet’s Disease was one of those diseases. And one of the things that we’ve found in doing research on autoimmune diseases is that the thyroid gland is almost always heavily involved in causing symptoms. And in almost all cases, Iodine Deficiency and Bromine Toxicity is one of the most important root cause of Behcet’s disease and other autoimmune diseases.

In this article, we talk about how Lugol’s iodine and Povidone Iodine can be used to modulate and heal the immune system.

 In this article, we talk about how women are using Lugol’s iodine to cure breast cancer and other reproductive organ cancers. Lugol’s iodine is one of the most important cures for cancer that we recommend to anyone who wishes to naturally cure this disease. If you have Behcet’s Disease, it’s important to understand the relationship between cancer and autoimmune disease. Reading more about the article we link to above about how iodine modulates the functioning of the immune system will help you better understand how this vital mineral can help you overcome autoimmune disease as well as cancer.

But to really understand what causes Behcet’s Disease, you need to understand that anyone who has an Iodine Deficiency, is susceptible to Bromine Toxicity. Bromine is in the same chemical family as Iodine and it masquerades in the body as Iodine. In order to treat Iodine Deficiency, your body will first need to go through a Bromine Detox which will likely worsen your symptoms before your symptoms get better. Please read more about Iodine Deficiency Combined with Bromine Toxicity in this article about Myasthenia Gravis.

Below are Symptoms of Bromine Toxicity. Note the symptoms of Behcet’s Disease that are included in this list (some are in bold print):

  • Headache
  • Fatigue
  • Confusion
  • Disorientation
  • Auditory hallucinations
  • Visual hallucinations
  • Brain Fog
  • Loss of control of body movements / Strange Facial Expressions
  • Short-term memory loss
  • Drooping eyelids (ptosis)
  • Neurological impairment
  • Psychosis
  • Seizures
  • Serious Digestive Problems
  • Foot twitching
  • Tingling in the extremities
  • Somnolence
  • Delirium 
  • Eyelid twitching
  • Disturbance of color perception
  • Dark thoughts (e.g. “there is no reason to live”)
  • Depression (e.g. “there is no reason to get out of bed”)
  • Mood issues such as anxiety or mood swings
  • Mouth and tongue sores and cuts, a sore mouth
  • Dry mouth
  • Metallic taste in the mouth
  • Odd swallowing sensations – also known as “swollen glottis” in the old medical literature, ,but this “odd sensation” may also involve the inflammation of the thymus gland located behind the sternum and in front of the heart.
  • Body odor
  • Bromide acne which is coniform (the use of zinc can help counteract bromide acne)
  • Skin “cuts”
  • Hair loss
  • Brain fog
  • Leg and hip ache that resembles arthritis
  • Urticaria / Rash (bromoderma)
  • Urethral Spasm and Frequent urination / Cystitis (may be mistaken for a urinary tract infection)
  • Sinus pain 
  • Runny nose
  • Headache
  • Cherry angiomas
  • Sedation/lethargy
  • Unusual urine odor or color
  • Diarrhea or constipation
  • Vision Changes / Blurry Vision / Double Vision
  • Irritability
  • Increased salivation
  • Dream changes
  • Impaired memory/concentration
  • Tremors
  • Reproductive and Thyroid Hormone changes
  • Kidney pain
  • Breast Pain / Fibrocystic Breast Disease / Breast Lumps

Essentially, Behcet’s Disease, like many other autoimmune diseases might be conceptualized as Iodine Deficiency and Bromine Toxicity.

How to Treat Behcet’s Disease Naturally Using Iodine Therapy:

Begin the process of reincorporating iodine back into your life by beginning to take the following supplements for at least two weeks before you start taking Lugol’s iodine:

Start taking Lugol’s iodine about 2 weeks after you begin taking the above supportive nutrients. Start with 1 drop of Lugol’s Iodine 2% and increase the dose by one drop every 3-7 days as long as you are not experiencing a worsening of Behcet’s symptoms. If you experience new symptoms of Bromine Toxicity (such as those listed above), that is confirmation that you do indeed have a problem with Bromine Toxicity. Continue to administer Lugol’s iodine 2% at 1 drop daily until you feel ready to increase the dose slowly by one drop. When you reach 20 drops and maintain that dose daily for 1-2 weeks, your symptoms of Behcet’s Disease will be substantially improved. Continue to administer 20 drops of Lugol’s iodine daily for the rest of your life to protect your body from Bromine exposure.

Home Remedy for Behcet’s Disease: Natural Cures and More…

One of the most powerful cures for Behcet’s disease, serious digestive system disorders, and headaches caused by brain inflammation is the essential oil of the Pinus palustris tree (also known as the 100% Pure Gum Spirits of Turpentine). The Pinus strobus essential oil, in contrast, contains suramin, a substance that has been able to cure autism in some children or at least to significantly lessen symptoms in others.   

What Causes Behcet’s to Flare Up?

At this link, we talk at length about a model of autoimmune disease that differs from the model of autoimmunity that your doctor was taught in medical and the model that he or she has passed on to you as an explanation for how Behcet’s disease works.  Our goal in our autoimmune disease series is to give patients with Behcet’s disease and other autoimmune conditions a new way to look at their disease. We are constantly working to find natural remedies for Behcet’s disease and other autoimmune conditions.

Often Behcet’s disease flares up as the pathogens that cause this disease start to die in the body. Because Behcet’s disease is a disease of the liver / gallbladder (as evidenced by the involvement of the skin and eyes), anytime the pathogens that cause this disease die, the body struggles to remove these rotting microscopic corpses from the body. The pathogen that causes the disease gives off toxins as it decomposes in the body. So, as with psoriasis patients, it’s important to pay close attention to detoxification by doing enemas on a regular basis and by paying special attention to the gallbladder (through the non-surgical purging of gallstones) and the liver.

But in addition to the fact that Behcet’s symptoms flares can happen as the body starts to heal (meaning that symptoms get worse before they get better), is the fact that curing autoimmune disease is all about restoring balance to the autonomic nervous system. This means that the healing trajectory for autoimmune disease sufferers like those with Behcet’s disease, are going to have an oscillating trajectory of recovery as opposed to the more familiar, slow, upward climb that generally happens when a person recovers from the common cold or the flu. Again, if you’re wondering is Behcet’s disease curable?–the answer is yes, but the healing trajectory for this disease will involve a back-and-forth between uncomfortable sets of symptoms to restore balance to the body over time. It’s important to learn a bit about Reactive Oxygen Species medicines and Dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO), but also expect to use the other healing modalities that we talk about in regard to psoriasis as natural remedies for Behcet’s.


Heal Behcet’s Sores

To heal Behcet’s disease sores, be sure to read more about Chlorine Dioxide Solution / Miracle Mineral Solution and Dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO) (an FDA-approved medicine), both of which will be extremely useful to you in the curing this disease. It’s vital that you take the time to learn about these two substances, by reading our two books about Chlorine Dioxide Solution and Dimethylsulfoxide or by clicking around at the AlivenHealthy site to learn how to avoid accidentally canceling out the effects of Chlorine Dioxide Solution / Miracle Mineral Solution. And it’s important to also learn about Dimethylsulfoxide because this medicine is extremely powerful and it increases the strength of certain medicines. DMSO has the broadest medicinal action of any medicine currently  approved by the FDA and it can do many things to help those who are suffering from Behcet’s.

Using Natural Psoriasis Cures to Cure Behcet’s Disease

The symptoms of Behcet’s have certain noteworthy characteristics in common with psoriasis, another autoimmune disease. For one thing, psoriasis patients experience a skin-manifestation of their disease, which points to liver and/or kidney detoxification problems (because the skin is an organ of detoxification that releases toxins that the liver and kidneys are not able to get rid of due to toxic overload or pathogenic colonization). Psoriasis patients who received kidney dialysis due to supposedly unrelated kidney problems experience a 20-50% cure rate as a result of dialysis which indicates that the kidneys can be host to pathogens that cause psoriasis. It seems as though patients with Behcet’s disease don’t have kidney involvement which may explain why they develop skin ulcers rather than psoriasis plaques.

Even more noteworthy than the 20-50% psoriasis cure rate using dialysis is the fact that about 80% of patients who receive ox bile supplements are able to cure psoriasis using this simple, non-toxic therapy that clears up digestive issues that again, are regarded as an unrelated, non-psoriasis problem by doctors of conventional medicine. Both anecdotal and scientific observations regarding the curative effects of sunlight and seawater on psoriasis sufferers (namely through the production of natural fumaric acid in the skin) have also helped psoriasis patients immensely to control and even to totally cure psoriasis. Multiple sclerosis patients have also used fumaric acid (and sunlight treatments) to cure their disease as well. And because fumaric acid is a natural supplement that’s produced by human skin when it is exposed to sunlight, it is one of several natural remedies for Behcet’s that needs to be studied or experimented with in supplement form (which is available without a prescription). Fumaric acid works as a cure for multiple sclerosis and psoriasis and the effort needs to be made to determine whether this medicine will also work to cure Behcet’s disease or not. 


Behcet’s patients may experience a worsening of their symptoms when they’re exposed to sunlight if they are having a Herxheimer Reaction (also known as a detoxification reaction) as colonizing bacteria die in the liver and gallbladder. It may be easier to dose something like Fumaria officinalis, a potential herbal medicine for Behcet’s disease in a manner that causes less discomfort during the detoxification stage of healing from this disease.

All of these psoriasis cures (and more) are relevant to anyone who is looking for natural remedies for Behcet’s disease because psoriasis and Behcet’s are related diseases.

Like psoriasis patients, most Behcet’s patients experience serious digestive problems. If you are among these people, vitamin B17 therapy will help your digestive tissues get stronger and more resistant to disease. Note that vitamin B17 is also known as amygdalin. Many psoriasis patients receive an additional diagnosis of Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis, but this is also true of Behcet’s patients. So these two diseases, Behcet’s and psoriasis both involve skin problems, liver / gallbladder problems, and serious digestive issues (which is usually due to reduced functioning of the liver / gallbladder due to the presence of colonizing pathogens in those organs). In this article, we talk about the use of Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide as a cure for Crohn’s disease, but food grade hydrogen peroxide is a reactive oxygen species medicine with broad-spectrum effects on the body that can also cure Behcet’s disease.   


Eye inflammation indicates that there is liver / gallbladder involvement in Behcet’s disease according to Traditional Chinese Medicine / Acupuncture and segmental anatomy, a system that views areas of the body that are linked by shared networks of fascia (an electrical connective tissue that envelopes all organs, bones, and skeletal muscles in the body). Segmental anatomy acknowledges and easily explains the electrical connection between distant organs or structures in the body like the liver and the eye. When an embryo takes shape in the womb, the eyes “bud out” from the newly-formed liver and are forever connected through common fascial networks and a common point of origin near the liver / gallbladder. This is why the Liver Meridian in Acupuncture is said to “open up to the eyes”. In contrast, the Kidney Meridian is said to “open up to the ears”. 


If you’ve been diagnosed with Behcet’s disease, it would be valuable for you to learn more about the gallbladder. The gallbladder and the liver are often at the core of autoimmune diseases, which is why we wrote a whole book about how to heal the gallbladder in the hopes that this information would be useful as a cure for Behcet’s disease as well as other autoimmune diseases. 


Because of the similarities between psoriasis and Behcet’s, we recommend that Behcet’s disease sufferers consider downloading and reading about how to cure psoriasis using alternative medicines
