Malignant Diseases

A bottle is filled with Marjoram and olive oil and left to stand in the sun or near the stove for 10 days. This oil as well as Calendula ointment or St. John's Wort oil is gently massaged into the affected glands (see "St. John's Wort" and "Calendula").

 Fresh Plantain leaves as well as Butterbur leaves and Calendula stems and leaves are washed and crushed to a pulp with a wooden rolling pin...

A tea is made from the following herbs: 300 gm. Calendula and 300 gm. Yarrow. 6 to 8 heaped teaspoons of herbs are needed to make 1 ½ to 2 litres of this tea which is sipped throughout the day. 3 tablespoons of Swedish Bitters are diluted with tea and apportionately drunk before and after each meal...

If it is a matter of a still unbroken, malignant skin disorder, the orange juice of Greater Celandine is dabbed repeatedly on the afflicted areas during the day. For people who have no possibility to pick the stems and leaves in the wild or in the garden, I recommend a plant of Greater Celandine be kept in a flower pot...

In such a case Swedish Bitters as a compress is applied for 4 hours during the day and if possible the 4 hours should be spent out of bed, but the compress has to be kept warm. Warm Horsetail poultices are applied overnight. Should severe pain occur, these poultices are applied while the patient rests in bed, for 2 hours, mornings and afternoons (see General Information "poultices" and "compresses")...

Unfortunately in recent times cases have increased where besides adult males, boys and teenagers are affected. Maybe one of the causes is the wearing of tight trousers. Sometimes weeks after an operation swellings, accompanied by pain suddenly occur in another part of the body. Nevertheless the treatment has to be continued non-stop where the trouble started, at the area of the testes. The treatment is the same as for "diseases of the lymph glands"...

Deep gargling alternately with Bedstraw and Mallow tea is recommended. Poul­tices from the same herbs in their fresh state are applied overnight. The herbs are washed, crushed, applied and kept warm by wrapping a piece of cloth over the poultice. The herb residue from the Bedstraw and Mallow tea is warmed slightly, mixed with barley flour (available at health food stores) spread on a piece of linen, applied and wrapped up...

Freshly picked finely chopped Bedstraw is infused for a short time, 6 to 8 cups of this tea are needed and 1 heaped teaspoon of herbs per cup is used. The tea is used as a gargle (gargle as deeply as possible) and rinse throughout the day. From time to time a sip of the tea is swallowed and the rest spat out. The swelling soon subsides, the pain alleviates, sometimes after the 4th or 5th day...

 In his writings, the Abbe Kneipp, points out that Horsetail arrests the growth of every tumour and slowly dissolves it. have gained the conviction that it works. Why has such little notice been taken of Abbe Kneipp's writings? How many very sick people could have been given a chance to live and how much grief could have been avoided!

 My experience shows that warm Horsetail poultices are the best treatment for all tumours...
