13. Questions & Answers
My doctor says that all cases of arthritis are incurable. He also says that I must take 10 tablets of aspirin every day to alleviate the inflammation and that I may have to eventually increase that dosage. Will this much aspirin be harmful?
Your doctor is correct when he says that he cannot cure arthritis. Hygienists know that only the body has the ability to heal. However, there have been many cases of arthritis which have completely recovered following a fast and a Hygienic lifestyle. Aspirin is a poison and the body will treat it as such. A small amount of aspirin will result in a certain amount of damage to the human organism but such large amounts will do much greater damage. The wisest thing to do would be to consult with a Hygienic practitioner and arrange to go on a fast. After that, adhere strictly to the Hygienic lifestyle and health will be realized.
I have been on the 'pill' for a number of years since I do not want to have any more children. Am I doing any harm through this practice?
Your body cannot condone the pill. It contains substances which suppress the normal hormone secretions. To be effective, the product must be taken regularly throughout a woman's reproductive life, and the method is attended by a multitude of ill effects besides being entirely contrary to the principles of natural, healthful living.
Evidence has built up that the use of the pill carries with it may dangers. There is a liability for strokes or cerebral hemorrhage and other conditions involving blood clotting. Reports of eye troubles following their use were reported in the United States, Canada, Australia and Great Britain. Numerous other "side effects" have been established.
Yes, this is a very harmful practice and should be discontinued immediately. If you are interested in a natural birth control method which is safe, read the book "Creation of Life" by Terrie Guay.
When my doctor prescribes a drug for me, I presume he knows what he is doing and wouldn't dispense drugs which were not scientifically tested before they were placed on the market. Am I correct in my assumptions?
Because poison effects always follow drugging, physicians must be regarded as a class of voodooists. Dr. Sidhwa states a case where it was found that a woman was given a drug for arthritis which resulted in degeneration of cells in the retina of the eyes. This eventually resulted in loss of 80 percent of her vision. Reporting on this case, the Washington Post said that "drugs potent enough to injure and kill are often prescribed casually and even carelessly because of excessive reliance upon drug salesmen."
The so-called scientific training concerning the drug apparently came from the salesman's touting of the drug.
We should simply keep in mind that all drugs are poisons and there are no safe ones.
It seems that every time I take my medication I get drowsy. Why would this occur?
The nervous system of man is highly complex. It is very sensitive and delicate in its structure and function. This highly-specialized system reacts very quickly and shows immediate and marked changes if substances inimical to its well-being are taken. Drugs can and do influence the structure and functions of the whole nervous system. Drugs interfere with the nervous system, hence functions are depressed and drowsiness occurs.
Since digitalis is derived from a plant, wouldn't it be alright to take?
There are many poisons in the plant kingdom and digitalis is one of them. Furthermore, even though digitalis was originally derived from foxglove, it is now made synthetically. Although digitalis is one of the most commonly-used drugs for treating heart failure, it causes noticeable poisoning in an unbelievably high proportion of patients who take it.
When a drug is given to a man suffering from a weak heart, it weakens the heart still more. The impaired heart must now pump more blood with each beat to help get the drug out of the system. But the heart, in doing so, will exhaust itself more quickly than if intelligently left alone and the patient allowed to rest. The heart needs rest, not stimulation. Exhaustion of all the vital organs is the common result of such stimulation.
This lesson has discussed the harmful practice of drug medication. All such agents are harmful even in small quantities. They are anti-vital and cause disease. They have no power or intelligence to effect healing.
All disease is the result of systemic poisoning and one cannot achieve health by ingesting poisons. The cause of disease must be removed before healing can be realized.
When drugs suppress symptoms they also suppress the body's healing process.
Only the body can heal and will do so when the proper conditions are provided. These conditions include proper food, fresh air, pure water, sunshine, rest and sleep, exercise and emotional poise.
