The world is in a panic over the Ebola Infection, and well they should be. Knowing how infectious diseases work in the body will help us develop an herbal remedy for any would be killer virus. I know our loving heavenly Father has not left us without hope or help. Today I will offer several suggestions that have not failed in the past to clear any infection I have used them on.
Preventive Measures: Lobelia can be used to stop the invasion of any infectious disease. Between when the virus is contracted and when symptoms begin to appear is the incubation time. During this period the virus is blocking up the system so it can take over the body. Keeping our system’s open so normal waste can be properly removed prevents the blockage from being established which is key to not succumbing to an infectious disease.
Dr. Christopher has this to say on the subject of prevention: Lobelia is said to be an excellent remedy (and preventative) for infectious diseases. Since most fevers result from obstruction in some part of the system–usually the digestive tract, we have found–Lobelia “locates” and removes the obstruction. We have seen this happen many times with children; they begin to sicken, and you can tell there is something congesting their system. By removing that congestion, you remove the cause of the illness.
Lobelia can be used as an enema to remove congestion from the body via the colon. When Lobelia causes vomiting, Dr. Stan Malstrom claims, it usually signals a cleansing process in the body expelling debris that cannot be expelled in any other way. He considers it an effective remedy in scarlet fever, measles, whooping cough, mumps, and other contagious diseases.
It gives almost immediate relief from suffocating mucus and phlegm that has accumulated in the respiratory tract and which is often associated with these diseases.
In connection with infectious diseases, Dr. Christopher told a story about one of the most contagious of them all–mononucleosis. A woman, an elderly student of Dr. Christopher’s, was in contact with the disease with the employees she worked with at a nursery hothouse. Since all of them had been using the company drinking fountain, all of them were exposed to the disease, and there was almost a complete turnover in employees because of it.
The lady tried to locate Dr. Christopher to ask what she should take to prevent getting the disease, but he was away lecturing. She took a bottle of Lobelia tincture to work with her, and took ¼ teaspoon or 35 drops in a teaspoonful of distilled water every hour. Out of all the employees, she was the only one who did not get mononucleosis! Dr. Christopher thought that she might have needed to drink a teaspoonful every so often, (Suggested time would be 1 teaspoon every three hours) as he thought more might be needed to do the job!
Often a person who has a fever coming on will take the teaspoonful of tincture of Lobelia with a glass of water. After vomiting, the fever breaks and the person is able to go about his regular duties. Dr. Christopher said that Lobelia is an anti-infection herb as well as a relaxant.
