Apprehensions, vague fears, fear of some impending calamity, all fears of inexplicable origin, “Afraid of fear”, but dare not talk about it to anybody.
It is a queer state of mind. The man is afraid. He knows he is afraid. Any other man can observe the causeless perspiration on his face and forehead, his hair standing on edge and his goose flesh. He is tongue tied and yet if somebody asks him what is the matter with him, he will only say ‘Oh nothing’, and he is not telling lies. It is very true that he himself does not know what he is afraid of. Although this state is transitory and it passes off by itself after sometime, but till the time it lasts, the man remains terrified and does not know what he is afraid of.
It is not like Mimulus, where the man knows what he is afraid of and he can name the cause of his fear. The extent of fear is also much more than Mimulus, it is more like the terror of Rock Rose. Yet it is not like the terror of Rock Rose where the terrorising cause is known.
In its nature, it resembles ‘MUSTARD’ where a pall of depression descends upon an unsuspecting prey, engulfs him completely and leaves him after sometime, by itself. In the whole operation the patient has suffered from a bout of extreme depression but does not know, how and why it happened.

Ginseng is a wonder herb with outstanding medicinal properties. It has been used in China, Korea, Japan, India and Southeast Asia for its vitalizing and restorative power.
Ginseng can be used beneficially in treating cancer as a supportive treatment and in overcoming the after effects of medical treatments. Modern scientific studies on this herb found that it emits a mitogenetic ray, which is considered as an all-natural ultraviolet radiation. Nature has put within ginseng, a process of cellular proliferation via this mitogenetic emission. It is said that this all-natural cellular rejuvenation process stimulates the body’s own sluggish process and thereby promotes the youth-building benefit of cellular renewals, which is the key to healing and regenerations.

Holy Basil (Ocimum sanctum)
Holy basil, known from the Vedic period, has many medicinal virtues. It is highly beneficial in overcoming stress arising from cancer and the after effects of medical treatment. The basil leaves are regarded as adaptogens or anti-stress agents. Recent studies have shown that the leaves protect against stress significantly. It has been suggested that even healthy persons should chew 12 leaves of basil twice a day, morning and evening, for preventing stress.

If you do not want to become overtired, you should observe and become familiar with the rhythm of exercise and rest. Plan to have sufficient time to get ready if you work away from home, so that you will arrive at your place of work without having had to rush. Moreover, it will be of special benefit if you choose, not the shortest way to work, but the most pleasant – perhaps passing through a park or some gardens. Remember, this can be a protection from exhaust fumes at the same time. Following this advice, anyone can derive physical benefits from his daily walk to and from work and this cannot be appreciated enough in view of the limited opportunities to move about in our jobs. If the distance is too great or walking to work presents other problems, why not train yourself to get up a little earlier in order to go for a brisk walk before setting out to work? It would also be to your advantage if you repeated this in the evening. A balanced combination of exercise and rest maintains our efficiency and well-being and helps us to avoid getting overtired. So why should anything prevent you from putting this advice into practice conscientiously and with perseverance?



Some time ago I visited San Francisco, where I met a scientist with whom I discussed a number of problems. Among other things he told me that in the dock area rats are often caught that are infected with cholera. In such a way it is possible for international ports to be endangered by foreign ships even though no sick person is on board, the reason being that rats and mice are disease-carriers. If more efforts were made to eradicate not only mice and rats but also flies and mosquitoes, I am sure that foot-and-mouth disease would spread much less. It is a documented fact that in the tropics, the jungle and the prairies more people die from diseases transmitted by insects than are killed by tigers, leopards, snakes or any other wild animal.



The walnut harvest is an unforgettable experience for all those who have had the privilege of growing up in the country. It was

always a red-letter day for me when, armed with a stick, I was allowed to climb the high walnut trees and beat down the nuts, which, though ripe, were not quite ready to fall out of their green outer shells. Even the bravest climber had fearful moments sometimes, when some outer branch would not release its precious load, and it was neither safe nor easy to persevere until the last nut dropped to the ground.

Searching for walnuts in the leaves under the trees, piling them together, then prising the nuts out of their shells, although not the cleanest thing for the hands, was great fun. Such work was not for the ladies with their delicate fingers and polished nails, because for more than two weeks afterwards the yellowish-brown stains would still be impregnated in the hands.

Many of us will be familiar with the good fresh taste of newly harvested walnuts. Eaten with wholewheat bread and sweet apple cider or freshly pressed grape juice, they are both delicious and nutritious. But did you know that walnuts are especially good for those suffering from metabolic disturbances and constipation? When drugstore laxatives do not produce the desired results, walnuts may solve the problem. Walnuts are recommended for people with liver disorders and although most liver patients cannot tolerate fat they will find that moderate quantities of walnuts will agree with them quite well.

So, do not wait for the festive season to eat walnuts. They should be eaten all the year round. Make a point of including them with fruit dishes and snacks.



It is generally known that berries are also valuable because of their high mineral content. All berries, with the exception of cranberries, are predominantly alkaline. But in spite of their acidity, cranberries are still valuable, mainly for those who eat a large amount of raw food.

Experience has shown that berries are good for the liver and pancreas. In cases of disturbances in these organs, bilberries (blueberries) will do much to restore their proper functions. Although stone fruit, pears and other fruit can upset people with these disorders, berry juices will have a beneficial effect.

The one fruit that has to be watched is the strawberry. Many people are allergic to strawberries and they can also affect the kidneys, although much depends upon the fertilisers used in their cultivation. If the right organic manure or compost is used, that is, a natural compost, bone meal and natural lime, then reactions such as nettle rash (urticaria) may be avoided. If you are allergic to cultivated strawberries, try wild ones, because there is a difference. On the other hand, you may forget strawberries altogether and stick to the other kinds of berries that do not cause allergic reactions and are just as good.



When milk is uncontaminated and pure, it is a valuable food, providing protein and fat. However, since there are many sick cows and the main causes of sickness are tuberculosis and brucellosis, milk — especially unboiled, raw milk – cannot be recommended without reservation. In cases of cancer, arthritis and many other serious illnesses, it is better to avoid milk altogether. Then there is the question of whether one should drink it fresh or sour. Some say one thing, some another. There is obviously more nourishment in fresh, untreated milk direct from the cow. Sour milk has lost the lactose which, through fermentation, has been transformed into lactic acid, but it is nevertheless easier to digest and more beneficial to the intestinal flora, which it regenerates. From this it will be seen that both kinds of milk have their advantages, whether fresh or sour, or as yogurt, even though the substances contained in them may vary.



In other areas amoebas are a constant danger, and this goes not only for the Far East but also the Near East. Amoebas can be transmitted when eating salads or other raw vegetables and fruit. They can also be passed on by people who are themselves infested with these insidious parasites. Uncleanness is only one way in which their transmission to healthy persons is possible. It is important to establish if these dangerous parasites have invaded our organism as quickly as possible, and do something about them before they are able to get to the liver via the intestines and the bile duct. Because once they have reached the liver they can destroy their host, slowly but surely. So, when travelling in the Far and Near East, never eat uncooked food or drink the water. Even fruit that can be peeled should first be thoroughly cleaned so that the parasites which stick to the fruit skins do not attach themselves to your hands while peeling it. If you fail to do this the amoebas can be transferred from the hands to the peeled parts and enter your system. You can therefore appreciate the great risk you are exposed to and it would be wise to always carry some disinfectant for cleaning the skin of fruit. I am sure you will agree that this precautionary measure is better than contracting some disease through carelessness, or even dying from the consequences. Friends I have visited in these areas often complained about a typical pain on the right side in the liver region. You cannot be too careful, for even a common attack of dysentery can permanently damage your health.



All spicy foods and every kind of roughage should be excluded from the patient’s diet, in order to prevent further irritation of the stomach lining. Provided the overall physical condition is excellent, one or two days of fasting per week will achieve good results. The diet should consist largely of milk, soft white cheese (cottage cheese or quark), cooked cereal porridge and cereal gruels. Even when the patient is completely cured and the pains have totally subsided, he will have to refrain from alcohol, nicotine, pork, cold meats, animal fats and hot spices for a long time. In fact, it would not be a bad idea to eliminate these items from the diet altogether. It would certainly be the best preventative measure possible and, considering that there are many other palatable foods which are not harmful to the body, the sacrifice involved seems small indeed.



Many people have asked this question, but so far I have not been able to give them an answer that completely satisfies me. True, it is possible to undergo a series of tests carried out by specialists, which I understand is increasingly becoming a standard practice in the United States, for example. As a rule, however, this approach is rather expensive and requires an additional sum of money in cases where immunisation with antibodies is subsequently performed. Moreover, the effectiveness of this kind of treatment is by no means guaranteed.

The best thing is to test yourself in the following way. Every time an allergic reaction is noted write down everything that was eaten, touched or smelled. In time, a study of these notes should reveal the recurrence of a certain substance, perhaps a food item, a fruit or a flower. This may be a clue as to the cause of the allergy. Then, of course, the most obvious thing to do is to avoid the responsible agent or agents at all costs.

People who have allergies often suffer from calcium deficiency, which makes it necessary to take a good calcium preparation and eat calcium-rich foods. This will help to control if not eliminate the allergy. The homoeopathic drops Pollinosan have also given good results in cases of allergic colds and other allergies.
