Various Disorders

These pimply eruptions plague many young people during puberty and are partly caused by kidney trouble. For this reason strongly spiced, salted dishes and acid salads and drinks should be avoided. Salads should be prepared with sour cream. For acne 1 litre of Stinging Nettle tea should be sipped throughout the day...

AMPUTATION (“ghost pain”)

 Long after, sometimes years after, an amputation, “ghost pain” still occurs. Experiences show that Comfrey poultices (see on Comfrey “directions”) bring some easing and gradually the pain disappears...

APPENDIX, irritation of

 “If a cup of freshly picked Blackberry leaves tea was drunk once in a while, there never would be an irritation of the appendix.” This saying of my childhood’s family doctor I remembered, when, one morning, my 7 year old son awoke, looking very pale and feeling pain in the region of the appendix...

APPETITE, lack of (in children)

 A young mother complained that her 2 year old son suffered from a chronic lack of appetite, was tired and listless, had dark rings under the eyes and hardly ever wanted to go for a walk. This changed rapidly when, following my advice, she gave the child a Thyme bath which was prepared from 50 gm of herbs (see on Thyme “directions”; the heart region has to be outside the water)...

The ground seeds of Fenugreek are used successfully for this disease, as well as for osteo-myelitis and bone growth. One half cup of Yarrow tea is drunk 4 times a day and to 2 of these half cups ½ a teaspoon of ground Fenugreek seeds is added. Yarrow baths, 200 gm. herbs per bath (the water can be re -used twice), should be taken for 20 minutes once a month...

Bad breath is not only unpleasant for the one concerned, but also for his fellow man. First of all a medical check-up should establish the cause of it. It could be bad teethulcers in the mouthtonsillitissecretion of the mucous membrane of the nose, not enough stomach acid or constipation. For the latter it means, first of all, to bring about a regulated digestion...

BLADDER, weak

 Many people suffer from a weak bladder, especially so on rainy days or when walking downhill. Warm Yarrow and Horsetail sitz baths — 100 gm. herbs per bath — are very beneficial (see General Information "sitz bath"). 4 cups of Lady'sMantle tea are to be drunk daily and the area of the bladder is rubbed with Shepherd's Purse tincture...
