Welcome to a Healthier Life
It can be very embarrassing when you shake someone’s hand and find that the hand has a fungal condition. This is usually visible on the palm of the hand, where the skin feels hard and is of a reddish, cracked texture
Fungal conditions can be persistent and difficult to treat. They may start on the hands, or sometimes on the feet as in the case of athlete’s foot, or on some remote areas of the skin. They can be recognised by skin eruptions, inflammation and cracked skin.
Some years ago I had a patient with a fungal condition on the hands, and whatever I recommended, no progress was made. I mentioned this case to my old teacher, Alfred Vogel.
He told me that at one time he had visited the Javaras, an Indian tribe, where he had noticed many incidences of skin fungi and went on to tell me how they treated their people: there, in the wild, originated today’s remedy, Spilanthes.
Spilanthes oleracea or Paracress is a herbal preparation used externally for fungal conditions and infections. For a fungus within the mouth, such as thrush, this is also a wonderful remedy.
In such instances, Spilanthes can be used as a mouth rinse for the inflammation of the mucous membranes, when it is recommended that at least 40 or 50 drops are taken, diluted in half a glass of water.
Athlete’s foot is probably the most commonly known fungal disease and can be very widespread. The skin frequently becomes raw and eroded, with a burning and itching feeling and, through touch, can affect the hands too.
For fungal skin conditions such as athlete’s foot, including infections under the finger and toenails, it is advisable to dab Spilanthes on the affected areas two or three times a day.
Usually when I treat a patient for a fungus, I also recommend the use of concentrated whey, Molkosan. This is produced from fresh Alpine whey by a natural fermentation process. It contains all the important minerals found in fresh whey, such as magnesium, potassium and calcium in a concentrated form.
Molkosan is also rich in natural dextro-rotatory lactic acid which, in health-oriented nutrition as well as natural healing methods, has a specific significance.
Many people I have seen have found the combination of Molkosan internally and Spilanthes to be of great help.
