I once read something very interesting. It said that disease is like an iceberg, what we can see above the water is just the tip of what lies beneath. Just like the symptoms that we can see and feel often indicate a much more serious condition within our body. Unfortunately the symptoms are usually the last thing to appear and the disease has already been manifesting for a while. Suppressive medications such as painkillers simply ease the symptoms but we must remember the pain has not gone away, we just cannot feel it anymore. Illness does not occur for no reason. There is always a cause for every effect and we need to take responsibility for our own health.
Please Note: All suggested remedies for ailments below can be used in various combinations to suite individual needs. In other words you could prescribe Nettle tea and a balanced diet for an anaemic person and it would be sufficient.
Acne occurs due to hormonal changes that cause the sebaceous glands to become inflamed. This is due to oil becoming trapped in them and bacteria multiplying when the sebaceous duct becomes blocked. If the gland continues to produce oil when the duct is blocked then a cyst may form.
It is important to include hormonal stabilizers as part of the treatment as well as herbs that assist with lymphatic drainage. Reducing inflammation and improving the diet and digestive system is also vital. Ensure that there is proper elimination of toxins from the body. Topically it is important to apply natural astringents (witch hazel) to prevent further infection and scarring. Acne is not caused by dirt and cannot be washed away.
Herbs: Guava, sarsaparilla, echinacea, burdock, nettle, alfalfa, red clover, gentian, horsetail.
Supplements: Vit A, zinc, silica, colloidal silver, multi-vitamin, barley grass/chlorophyll.
ADD or ADDH
Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) sometimes accompanied with hyperactivity (ADDH) is a condition that usually affects children but some adults suffer from this condition as well. Symptoms include hyperactivity, lack of concentration, temper tantrums, becoming frustrated easily, impatience, inability to sit still, clumsiness and poor sleep patterns. A child may experience learning difficulties even though he has a normal IQ. Often children are miss-diagnosed simply because they are bored in class and become restless or that they require a different approach to the conventional way of teaching.
When treating someone with ADD or ADDH it is important to emphasise the importance of the diet. Avoiding all foods that are stimulants is essential. This means no sugar (chocolates, ice-cream, biscuits etc), tea, coffee, milo, hot chocolate, fizzy drinks and certain medication such as cough mixtures. Anything containing preservatives or colourants must also be avoided. They must also maintain a low carbohydrate intake and then only rye, oats, rice and millet is allowed. Avoid any wheat products. Cereals also contain a lot of sugar so substitute them for wheat free bread or wheat free/sugar free muesli. Toxins and poisons such as mercury need to be eliminated. Nourishing the nervous system and improving nerve impulses will eliminate feelings of irritation and frustration as well as calm the activities of the brain.
