Just as certain bacteria in the intestines are necessary for the proper digestion and assimilation of food, so plants need certain bacteria to enable them to flourish as they should. For instance, it is impossible to reap a good crop of soybeans if the soil has not been inoculated with the bacteria symbiotically associated with them, or unless the beans have been grown in that particular soil before. No pine forest could grow without bacteria in the soil either. They are indispensable. A similar necessity exists in the digestive system; it, too, needs certain bacteria. That is the reason why yoghurt is highly recommended for the care of the bowels, preferably yoghurt containing bacteria of the species Lactobacillus acidophilus, since it encourages the normal, beneficial flora, while it hinders the harmful one, the putrefactive type, in its development. Lactic acid bacteria are good for us because they get on well with the intestinal bacteria and promote their growth. But if we take any of the various antibiotics on the market – penicillin, streptomycin, auromycin or whatever other names they may have been given – we must be prepared for their damaging effect on the intestinal flora, for it so happens that the bacteria essential to good health are also the most sensitive to drugs. No wonder, then, that the harmful bacteria proliferate and spread in the intestines after these double-edged remedies have been administered, possibly leading to chronic inflammation of the intestines. Once the beneficial bacterial flora has been damaged, the patient will have less resistance than before taking the drugs and germs can gain entrance much more easily.

If the patient then receives further doses of potent antibiotics, the body will no longer respond.

It is a fact that a sore throat, if not correctly treated or completely cured, can have serious consequences that may do permanent injury to one’s health. This particularly applies to severe sore throats such as those caused by Vincent’s angina, laryngitis or tonsillitis. The toxins of an improperly treated sore throat can cause an inflammation of the middle ear, rheumatic fever and arthritis. They can also be responsible for a partial paralysis of the cardiac valves, which leaves the patient with a permanent cardiac defect. This was brought to my attention not too long ago by one of my patients, a healthy woman who had given birth to several children without any complications, until the day that a neglected sore throat (tonsillitis) put an end to her good health. The doctors shared my belief that her cardiac defect was a direct result of the presence of tonsillitis toxins in her body. To make matters worse, her stomach and intestines had been affected by the allopathic drugs she had been taking. So today, this once vigorous and healthy woman is a very sick person.

It is also dangerous to go outdoors too soon after tonsillitis when the weather is bad. You should know that tonsillitis may take a more drastic course in a low pressure system, that is, at the beginning of a warm air current. Someone suffering from calcium deficiency or a weak lymphatic system is more prone to this type of sore throat. This emphasises the need to always have a diet rich in calcium and avail oneself of the benefits of a calcium complex, such as Urticalcin.

But the tongue must learn something else: during times of distress it must keep silent, for its indiscriminate use may cause the betrayal of a friend and brother. The tongue must know how to thwart an enemy’s fatal intentions and break the power of evil. Even a foolish man will be regarded as wise if he knows when to ‘hold his tongue’. This did not escape the notice of King Solomon, as recorded in the Book of Proverbs. It may be why a popular proverb says, ‘Speech is silver but silence is golden.’ Indeed, for many, keeping silent takes greater willpower than talking.

Is it not strange that such a little organ as the tongue serves such diverse purposes? In fact, if we do not force our palate to take in unnatural things, if we do not expect it to call good what is really harmful, then it will reward us with its healthy power of evaluation. It is similar with the other function for which this small organ was made, the power to express feelings. The tongue can prove to be an extremely beneficial organ, but it can also turn out to be detrimental. Whether we use it as a positive or negative outlet for our emotions depends on the state of our hearts. That is why Solomon wisely advised us, ‘More than all else that is to be guarded, safeguard your heart, for out of it are the sources of life.’ And out of the heart’s abundance the mouth speaks.

It is advisable to back up the treatment by means of natural remedies, such as Gelsemium 6x and Urticalcin, calcium always being valuable in such cases. Nux vomica 4x is helpful in counteracting nausea. All these remedies contribute to improvement. As for the diet, fruit juices are indicated so as not to overburden the digestive organs. What is more, never lose sight of the necessity to rid the body of toxins, not only through heavy sweating, but also through the bowels and kidneys. Since this treatment has proved to be reliable and effective in practice, it should be tried first.

Polio epidemics occur periodically and regionally, although less so today than formerly. In tropical countries it continues all year round. Research specialists have found that a number of people, particularly children, although immune to the disease themselves, nevertheless are carriers of the polio virus. Among primitive peoples very few cases of polio are found and this would lead to the conclusion that the advantages and disadvantages of our civilisation are responsible for our predisposition to this disease and undermine our resistance to it. Our food and life-style, living in overheated houses, and so forth, no doubt play their part in our susceptibility.

So how can we protect ourselves from this dreadful affliction? In the same way that we should protect ourselves from all infectious diseases. The main requirement is a natural way of life. Healthy exercise is also important – and we should not become ‘soft’. Plenty of fresh air, light and sunshine should be our ‘companions’ whenever possible. Since it is now thought with reasonable certainty that the polio virus attacks by way of the nose and mouth, do not neglect to paint your children’s throats with Molkosan when a threat of polio occurs in your locality. By doing so we can thus protect our children from infectious diseases and build up their resistance. However, should the infection have already taken place, remember the keynote to successful treatment: detoxify and eliminate – profuse sweating and elimination through the bowels and kidneys. This will help to avert the worst.

Mothers often complain that their babies become constipated when they are fed brown rice gruel. It may well be that babies are more sensitive and that rice is more constipating than barley gruel, but because of its nutritional value it should not, on any account, be left out of the child’s diet. The constipation can always be counteracted by natural means. Ground linseed is very good for the bowel action and should be added to the brown rice gruel. The amount to be used depends upon the child’s reaction, but half a teaspoonful will usually be adequate. In this way the child will not be deprived of the goodness of brown rice.

It may not be quite so creamy but it is certainly valuable, especially during teething. Rye contains not only calcium but also calcium fluoride, which is essential for the development of tooth enamel.

The best programme is to feed the baby alternatively rice, rye, barley, oat, perhaps even millet and buckwheat gruels, together with various juices, either carrot or fruit. Care must be taken, however, not to mix vegetable juices with fruit juices. In fact, it would be wise to avoid using more than one kind of fruit juice per meal, since sensitive babies may have difficulty in digesting the mixture. It would be better to mix one fruit juice with almond cream. This may be available already prepared from health food stores or can be made by grinding some almonds very finely and crushing them with a pestle and mortar; then mix with water in a blender. Mix the almond cream with the fruit juice in a blender and you will have the best food not only for your baby but even for older children and adults. Babies with cradle cap (see below) should definitely be put on almond milk, and if you want to clear up the condition, Violaforce and calcium must be added to their diet.
