Various Disorders

Interestingly more women than men have gall stones. Nausea, vomiting and agonizing pain which shoots up and across the right rib cage towards the heart are the symptoms. Since there are so many remedies available in God’s Pharmacy, it does not always have to end in an operation.

A 6-week course treatment with Radish juice has helped every time, unless the stones are of the rare kinds that do not dissolve...

Frequent gargling with a tea made from finely cut leaves of Knotted Figwort (Scrophularia nodosa) or Bedstraw will make a  goitre disappear. Knotted Figwort grows in moist ditches, damp woods and on the side of brooks. It has insignificant reddish brown flowers and dark green pointed leaves. These have the same sharp smell as Elder leaves and are therefore not easily mistaken for another plant...

For this fortunately rare disease, the following herbs are used successfully: Speed- well, Lady’s Mantle, Shepherd’s Purse, Yarrow and Horsetail mixed in equal proportions. 1 heaped teaspoon per cup of boiling water is used and infused for 1 minute. At least 4 cups have to be drunk throughout the day. Besides this, sitz baths are taken with these herbs for 14 days...

HEARING DISORDERS caused by colds

Ground Ivy, Sage and Yarrow are mixed in equal proportions. A warm infusion made of these herbs is used to rinse the ears. Swedish Bitters on a piece of cotton wool put into the ear, into which a few drops of warm Thyme oil have been poured first, is recommended, too...

Since cardiac infarct has increased much in the last years, I would like to point out a tea mixture which has shown surprising results in heart and circulation disorders...

KIDNEYS = GRAVEL IN THE BLADDER, KIDNEY STONES

A homoeopathic remedy is Stinging Nettle essence which can be recommended.

It is available at special chemists' and health food stores. As mentioned in the chapter "Horsetail", Horsetail sitz baths during which Horsetail tea should be drunk,..
