ASPEN’ 4 times a day for 2 weeks brought her round to normalcy, besides improving her general health. For clear conception of FEAR REMEDIES, remember:
1. ASPEN : for unspecified fears for which there is no cause.
2. MIMULUS: for fear of some thing which can be named.
3. ROCK ROSE : for terror of some calamity, some impending danger, extreme fear of something, usually with an element of suddenness in it, panic.
4. MUSTARD : for sudden and causeless depression which descends upon the unsuspecting patient like a cloud. In its suddenness and causeless origin, it resembles Aspen. Also it resembles ASPEN in leaving the patient by itself after sometime.
5. CHERRY PLUM : for fear of loss of control over one’s own emotions – fear of the mind losing control over actions.
6. RED CHEST NUT – for fear and anxiety for other’s safety.

Babloo, now 10 years, could not be relieved of ‘Bed wetting’ habit, despite many treatments. In evaluating the case history critically, we found that his younger sister, 6 years old, was also suffering from the same trouble.
The parents of the children were over-strict, and therefore they were forced to live under strict self-control during the day-time.
It was only at night during sleep that the suppressed feelings of the children found vent by freely passing urine unhampered by any physical controls. CHERRY PLUM was given T.D.S for mind losing control over action (urinating), even though it happened during sleep. In a week’s time the children had shed-off their old habit of bed-wetting.
In the negative CHERRY PLUM state the person loses contact with his Higher Self and loses the valuable guidance which alone can steer clear of the turbulent impulses that disturb the mind at times, and some-times lead to insane acts.
In the positive CHERRY PLUM STATE, the person remains always cool and collected with Reason (and not Impulse) in the driver’s seat guiding all physical and mental activity with active participation of his HIGHER SELF.

The medicinal use of Petasites goes back to the Middle Ages, or even earlier. The more we study the plant the more impressed we become with its good effects on a whole range of complaints, and the therapeutic spectrum of its active substances.

Petasites has a wide range of applications as an analgesic (a pain-relieving drug) and excellent results have been reported in connection with its use for headaches, migraines, menstrual cramps, toothache, painful wounds and many other aches and pains. This remedy provides temporary or complete relief from pain, and has also been known to cure the underlying problem.

Considering the fact that many people swallow chemical analgesics almost without thinking and become dependent upon them, it is understandable that doctors and patients alike appreciate the availability of a nontoxic and nonaddictive pain-killer.



4. Never try to suppress foot perspiration by means of strong substances. The result could be damaging to internal organs. The correct approach is to stimulate the kidneys for better elimination of wastes. Bathe the feet in an infusion of sage and afterwards rub them with a little Juniperosan. This amounts to a pleasant foot care regime and can get rid of foot perspiration in a natural way, given time. ‘

5. For eczema and athlete’s foot a foot bath with an infusion of wild pansy (heartsease) or cranesbill is recommended. After the bath dab Molkosan on the affected areas and as soon as it has dried, apply Bioforce Cream.

Take Aesculaforce orally and apply it externally as well.

7. For cold feet take foot baths, alternating between hot and cold water. Prepare the warm bath with an infusion of thyme, immerse your feet for three minutes, then place them in cold water for three seconds. Repeat this sequence for a total of about twenty minutes.



It should be quite clear from this explanation that it is foolish to take such problems lightly and to neglect seeking treatment at the earliest opportunity, even if you think you are too busy and have no time for it straight away. On the other hand, it is also important to consult an extremely experienced dentist because his knowledge will be indispensable in recognising the problem and subsequently providing the proper treatment.

Despite any amount of skill and experience, it is extremely hard for a good dentist to treat the ever-increasing number of cases of periodontal disease with more than limited success. In fact, the teeth may become loose and fall out (periodontitis).

Massaging the diseased gums with Echinaforce, in alternation with rhatany tincture or a herbal water containing rhatany and myrrh, is a partial solution to the problem. In addition to cleaning the teeth, the necessary daily dental hygiene and massaging of the gums, take Urticalcin, in order to supply the body with additional calcium, and adopt a diet rich in vitamins and minerals.



My experiences in the tropics jiave often urged me to point out the dangers that await a traveller if he drinks unboiled water in tropical or subtropical regions. By doing so, it is possible to take in pathogenic agents and parasites that can actually put one’s life in jeopardy.

All these factors make carcinogenic agents accumulate in our

system. The tar from the tobacco will give him a few per cent of carcinogenic substances; radioactivity in the air will add a few more per cent, so will sprays, especially if they contain DDT; then a few more per cent will be absorbed from chemical medicines, especially if derived from tar; a further amount will come from food additives, irradiated foods, as well as smoked meat and fish. If the carcinogenic substances from polluted

water are added to these other tragic influences, it is quite possible that the total of 100 per cent cancer-producing substances will have accumulated in that person’s body. This may be enough to

form a tumour if an appropriate irritation in the body also takes place. Since cancer claims an increasing number of victims in our times, it is essential to identify the many causes that can lead to it.



One person may come down with some kidney problem, another with a heart condition, while yet another one is likely to find that a circulatory disorder develops; only a fourth one may develop rheumatoid arthritis or some other ailment. And there may also be one who will escape unscathed. You see, it very much depends on the predisposition mentioned above, and even though the individuals concerned have the same life-style and diet, the disease is triggered either by some pathogenic agent, that is, microorganism, or by toxins.

The frightening thing about rheumatoid arthritis is that, without an apparent reason, the joints in any part of the body can become afflicted. There are times when it seems that the ailment is improving because a loosening-up of the joints and great relief is felt. Then, suddenly, for some inexplicable reason, there is a relapse and the condition deteriorates. These relapses usually occur during the cold seasons, in late autumn, winter or early spring. A warm dry summer often encourages what appears to be a real improvement.



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.
