Remedy Description

Source: Tao of Health, Sex, and Longevity, Daniel Reid, Fireside, New

York, pp 104-105

Respiratory System: lungs, bronchial tubes, throat,

nose, sinuses


Extreme difficulty in breathing owing to inability to fully evacuate the

lungs of stale air; accumulations of mucus in the lungs and consequent

blockage of air passages block outflow of air, not inflow; pasteurized milk

and refined starch are prime dietary causes.

Horseradish and lemon juice: the potent ethers in fresh grated horseradish

dissolve mucus in the sinuses and bronchial tubes quickly and effect-

ively; mixing it with fresh lemon juice doubles its efficacy; grate fresh

horseradish into a bowl, add enough fresh lemon juice to make a paste,

take 2 tsp 2-3 times a day, as needed.

Carrot and radish juice: fresh raw radish juice is similar in effect to

horseradish, but milder; it is too strong to take straight, however, and

should be blended 5 oz with 11 oz carrot juice, 1 pint daily.

Cranberries: cranberries contain one of nature's most potent vasodilators,

which open up congested bronchial tubes so that normal breathing is

restored; cranberries are excellent curative and preventive therapy for

the entire breathing apparatus; bring fresh cranberries to boil with just

enough water to cover them, simmer 2-3 minutes, pour off excess

water, puree cranberries in blender, strain off skins, and keep pulp in

refrigerator; when asthma or other respiratory difficulty occurs, mix 2

tbsp in a cup of warm distilled water and sip slowly.

Garlic: raw garlic contains potent ethers and enzymes that dissolve mucus

in lungs and bronchial tubes and help restore normal breathing; also

kills bacteria in air passages, preventing respiratory infections; 3-5

cloves daily. (Editor can be eaten reaw with bread or baked)

Other beneficial foods: wheat germ oil; pumpkin seeds; sunflower seeds;

celery juice; turnips; raw spinach.

Foods to avoid: pasteurized milk and all dairy products; cooked eggs;

refined starch, especially white flour.
