I came across a brochure given to me by Dr Abram Ber, M.D., who is also a homeopathic physician. These are some natural remedies for various ailments that he found useful over the past 25 years of practicing holistic medicine.

1. Loss of energy, use aloe tonic. This can be taken for reduced energy caused by: a poor nights rest-after an illness-after a difficult journey-during emotional stress-after surgery or dental work. Dose is one to two capfuls followed by a little water, and can be taken two or three times per day for up to a week. Keep it refrigerated. 2. Colds, sore throat, early onset flu, use Pleo-Not. This is the homeopathic ‘penicillin’ with no side effects and no bacterial resistance. 3. Constipation is your body’s biggest threat to its health. Happy Colon is effective, non-habit forming, and gentle. Most health care practitioners say “blessed are they who move their bowels twice a day”. 4. Back pain, take silica gel. 1 tablespoon before breakfast. 5. Hay Fever, Nasal Allergies, Asthma, Eczema-take Oralmat, which is an extract made in Australia from the rye plant. It acts rapidly to stop inhalant allergies without the side effects from antihistamines. 6. Osteoporosis-a new product that has been shown to stop bone loss is Ostivone, a natural plant extract. To prevent bone loss you must exercise. Also, take progesterone cream, and reverse acidosis with Alkalife. Add 1000-2000 mg Vit D3, with special calcium such as Peaca, and Vit K (provided you are not taking blood thinners). Remember, 1 out of 2 women over the age of 65 will likely develop osteoporosis.

Remember, exercise improves immunity and helps to prevent all of the above-this should be your first line of defense.

Stay well, John R. Blilie, M.S.
