EDGAR CAYCE ON THE CAUSES AND TREATMENT OF HEMORRHOIDS
The Edgar Cayce readings provide considerable information
on the causes and treatment of hemorrhoids. While noting the local
symptoms and suggesting therapies for symptomatic relief, the readings
go further in describing basic causes and treatments of the underlying
systemic problems which can predispose or directly lead to hemorrhoids.
CAUSES OF HEMORRHOIDS
Here are some of the most commonly mentioned causal
factors associated with hemorrhoids in the Cayce readings:
TREATMENT OF HEMORRHOIDS
- POOR DIGESTION - When poorly digested food leaves the stomach and
small intestines it can produce irritation in the lower end of the
large bowel (colon), particularly if the acid/alkaline balance is
disrupted. Hyperacidity, usually produced by improper diet and
poor assimilation of nutrients is emphasized as a predisposing factor
- PRESSURE ON SPINAL NERVES - Pressure on nerve centers (especially
in the lower portion of the spine) can produce a disruption of nerve
impulse and a relaxation of the muscles which direct peristalsis in
the colon. Hemorrhoids are the result.
- POOR ELIMINATIONS - Constipation and/or poor bowel habits can lead
to a buildup of toxins in the colon. The colon becomes
irritated from the accumulated poisons producing hemorrhoids.
- POOR CIRCULATION - Impaired circulation (especially lymph) through
the intestines is sometimes mentioned as a causative factor in hemorrhoids.
Here are some of the most frequently recommended treatments
- DIET - The basic Cayce diet focuses heavily on keeping a proper
alkaline/acid balance while avoiding foods which produce toxicity
and drain the system. Essentially, the diet consists mainly
of fruits and vegetables while avoiding fried foods and refined carbohydrates
- MANUAL THERAPY - Spinal manipulations and massage are commonly
recommended by Edgar Cayce to improve nervous system coordination
and relieve pressures on nerve centers which influence the alimentary
canal. Treatment of the lower spine (especially the coccyx or
tailbone) is emphasized in many readings.
- COLONIC IRRIGATION - Cleansing the colon via colonic irrigation
was often suggested to decrease toxicity in the colon and relieve
- MEDICINE - Various medicines were recommended for symptomatic relief
and local treatment of hemorrhoids.
- Tim is an ointment which is applied directly to hemorrhoids
to relive pain and itching while shrinking the hemorrhoid.
- Glycerine-carbolic acid-usoline mixture is injected into the
rectum for symptomatic relief of bleeding associated with hemorrhoids.
- A variety of laxatives are recommended for constipation.
- Small quantities of Glyco-Thymoline taken in water throughout
the day was recommended to alkalize the system.
- PACKS - A variety of packs for systemic and symptomatic healing
- For symptomatic relief of acute hemorrhoidal pain, hot Epsom
salts packs applied across the lower back were recommended.
- To improve eliminations, hot castor oil packs across the abdomen
- Glyco-Thymoline packs across the lower back or abdomen were sometimes
recommended for symptomatic relief and to help alkalize the intestinal
- ELECTROTHERAPY: For some individuals, mild electrotherapy (usually
using the violet ray or radial appliance) was suggested to improve
circulation and nervous system functioning.
QUOTES FROM THE EDGAR CAYCE READINGS
Here are some selections from the Cayce readings on
hemorrhoids. The readings at first often appear complex. There
are several points to keep in mind that may help in understanding them.
- The readings were given for individuals, with a wide range of symptoms
and severity. The treatment recommendations depended both on
the condition and the unique characteristics of the particular person.
- There also may have been aspects of the person's situation which
are not directly related to the hemorrhoids. In a complete reading,
Cayce details the problems in all systems of the body. Some
of these may appear to be directly unrelated to hemorrhoids, yet Cayce
often drew connections among widely separated parts of the body.
- Most readings discuss the causes, the development of the pathology
(which may be complex), the current state of the body, and treatment
recommendations. These excerpts do not necessarily include the
complete reading, but tend to focus on the information most directly
linked to hemorrhoids.
- Edgar Cayce tended to prescribe remedies that were immediately
available at the time, so that there may be different recommendations
for the same condition in 1925 and 1944.

Yes, we have the body here,  - this we have
had before. The general physical forces of the body are very good
throughout. There are those conditions in the body that should be
corrected, that are as the fragments, or end of conditions as were being
corrected in the lower portion of the lumbar and sacral region.
These were the EFFECTS of conditions as existed from the activities as
were made when the body was brought into the physical forces. The
activities as are seen in same at the present, are that as is produced
in the form of an acidity in the lower portion of the DESCENDING colon
- or ascending colon, if judged from the other portion, or from the anus
UP. Here we find that this activity of those conditions produced
brings about a form of hemorrhoid, that gives to the system the activity
as causes or produces fissures - that would be very detrimental were these
conditions not allayed or corrected, for - as is seen even from the external
- a fissure may be seen that would, in time, give irritation of the nature
as to be detrimental; for this - in the form of a rash from exterior -
would prevent the nominal or normal development of the organs of the body
in this direction.
To meet the needs of these, we would have the massage
- or the neuropathic massage - of the lower portion of the spine, and
especially of the LUMBAR and sacral region. Not attempting to make
any adjustments or corrections. Let the normal forces of the body,
in its health giving revibration throughout, be the correcting
element; using, however, local applications that may ASSIST this condition
in being corrected, from that as is produced in the lower portion of the
alimentary canal. Use, then, that ointment as has been given, or
prepared - Tim - T I M - and used in a WEAKENED solution, or weakened
state, by the ADDITION of the normal portion - that is, normal portion
of the solution, by almost an equal amount of pure butterfat, see?
but stirred well together, and this would be well to be injected
in a small syringe, or in a manner that same may reach the upper valve
or portion of the system that irritation is produced in. Using a
small amount of same as an ointment of evenings, only when the body rests,
on and about that portion where the trouble exists. Do that.
We are through with this reading.
In meeting the needs, then, of the pressures as
exist in pelvis, as exist in the organs of genitation, organs of gestation,
and in the assimilating forces of same - we would not only take into the
system properties as would make for a coordination of the gastric forces
as may act WITH those of the system, but those as will CORRECT those depressions
also in the system. These CORRECTIONS we would make either osteopathically,
or as adjustments. These we will find in the lumbar and lower dorsal
(Q) What will relieve the hemorrhoids?
(A) These will be relieved most by the correction of the condition
as is producing same, which is the tendency towards those conditions as
have been outlined. An active force in same will be for the body
- that is, in the correction - to at least TWICE each day bend forward,
with a bending exercise, as RAISES all of the organs upward, see?
and when the properties are being taken - that is, medicinal forces, as
well as manipulations - use Tim ointment for same, see?
Yes, we have the body, . Now, we find
there are many irritations in the physical functioning of the system,
with this body. Most of these, as we find, are produced by reflexes
from conditions existent in the nervous system, and with the correction
of these conditions - and the general BUILDING up of the system by proper
precautions as to the diet, the mode or manner of living, the thinking,
and the mental attitudes of the body held in accord with CREATIVE forces,
or the spiritual side of life - would bring for the body a much bettered
PHYSICAL condition, a much bettered outlook on life, and MAKE the experience
There should be those manipulations and corrections
in the cerebro-spinal system, that will alleviate the pressures in the
lumbar and dorsal region, as well as alignments in the upper dorsal and
cervical. These should be taken, as we would find, at least three
to four times each week. These may be given either osteopathically
or chiropractically, so that the ADJUSTMENTS or the alleviations are made.
Then, after each treatment, there should be the
vibrations from the violet ray for at least three to four, to five minutes,
over the WHOLE of the cerebrospinal system, to enliven the circulation
OVER the centers that especially are adjusted.
At least once each week there should be used the
appliance of the violet ray, that injection of the vagina appliance, that
may give the proper reactions to the organs of the pelvis.
The diet should be in THIS manner:
Mornings - citrus fruit, WITH stewed fruits, preferably
as of prunes, figs, apples, or the like, with some milk.
Noons - juices of meats, with vegetable juices or
soups, but no meats; followed with a salad - green vegetables, especially.
Evenings - a well balanced diet, that is nerve and
blood building. The finishing of this meal should be with either
fresh or raw pears, or stewed pears. These carry the iron that will
ASSIMILATE for the system. The meats should be such as pig knuckle
or souse, without vinegar, or those of liver, or the like. All the
vegetables should be eaten with the skins, rather than the pulp - as of
potatoes, the yams or the white or Irish potatoes - the skins rather than
As with the vegetables, preferably those of spinach,
lentils, cabbage (red cabbage), and the like. Beans, dried
- but WELL cooked, but not with too much of the fats with same...
(Q) What should be done for itching hemorrhoids?
(A) With the diet corrected, with the applications as will be
given from the violet ray through the vagina, these will be cleared.
While the body is weak from the hemorrhages, the
use of the penicillin for the checking of the inflammation, and to produce
coagulation, has not been bad. It may be necessary again when there
are the operations for the conditions in the lower portion of the rectal
area, and some of the conditions there will necessitate or would be much
better if this would be used in same.
The form or manner of allaying pain, or the anesthesia,
the local nature, if properly administered, will be much preferable owing
to the conditions of the heart or of the pressure there...
(Q) When will be best to operate for the hemorrhoids?
(A) Just as soon as it is indicated that there is sufficient
equilibrium or balance in the circulation.
(Q) Can the rectal trouble be relieved, and how?
(A) We would use this combination as an injection, for the disturbance
in the sphincter muscles and nerves from which the hemorrhoids arise:
To 1 ounce of Glycerine add 2 drops of Carbolic Acid. Stir or beat
this very thoroughly, as with mortise and pestle. Then add 2 ounces
of Usoline or Nujol. Use this in an ear syringe. Inject half
of this amount at the time, in the rectal area. Do this and then
apply the second quantity about a week to ten days later. This should
be sufficient. But if there should recur the condition, prepare
in the same proportions and manner, and use some six to eight weeks later.
The body has had in times back, or for some periods,
those conditions which have produced the inactivity of the eliminations
in the general alimentary canal. With this tendency for the overloading
or the dilation of the colon, and with the strain and lack of proper movement
in the muscular forces of the system (and with these making for tendencies
in the nerve reactions to become lax), there has been the allowing of
folds or accumulations in the form of hemorrhoids, that make for distress
when there are the activities of the system at some periods.
First there should be those precautions as to the
manner and character of diet, that there is kept those properties which
have the greater tendency towards the alkalin, and that are a tendency
for the general rebuilding of the system. Not those foods so much
that would make for roughness (that would make for laxness in the assimilating
and digestive system), but those that are well-balanced in the rebuilding
and replenishing for both the blood and the nerve supply of the body.
Also we would have the manipulations that may be
given in the form or corrections WITH manipulations, especially in those
For an antiseptic and to reduce the tendencies of
plethora in those portions that cause distress, use the ointment known
as Tim. This will act with the manipulative forces to not only reduce
the swelling and the painfulness, but to produce or cause coagulation
such as to do away with those protuberances which make for the distress.
A very helpful exercise each morning and evening,
also, would be the BENDING exercise with the hands raised high above the
head, bending forward to bring the hands as close to the floor as possible.
Do this for two or three minutes morning and evening.
A stimulation for the digestion tract of sage made
into tea, sweetened to taste, with cinnamon and gin - a pint of tea, 1
1/2 ounces of sugar, and stick cinnamon, that is cleansed, and 2 1/2 ounces
of gin. You see the active principle, same as we have in that of
the tar, - juniper tar in this, so if we produce a sickening to the stomach,
through the stimulation to the intestinal tract, we reduce the quantity,
or number of drops. We find the body will become improved and cleared
of this blood through the rectum as passed. You see we have a laxness
of these folds in the intestinal tract here in the lower end, until we
produce hemorrhoids there, high up to the second valve. This laxness
to the intestinal tract will remove the quantity of the material that
is producing the inflammation that causes the flow of blood to it, same
as produce to the kidneys here the lack of these. When produced
to act, as you see we have the active principle to the gin and to the
juniper tar, an active principle to the kidneys, causing them to secrete
to the system, while we have the turpentine producing a healing balm to
these, with the same action from that, or a sedative to these by the sage.
If the soreness increases here from the rectum, along here, we might reduce
by ointment from the exterior by that made of the grease of milk of the
cow, without salt, pulverized, cleansed, and what you call tobacco, -
Indian mullein - cleansed - not strong but soaked in water, washed, dried
and pulverized, and mixed with this; more of the grease than we have of
the other though, or it will produce too much inflammation.
First, we would begin with those irrigations that
will relieve those pressures in the colon area throughout. Continue
these, not to the detriment, not so that the activities of the lymph and
the peristaltic movement of the colon or the intestinal system are entirely
lost, but of sufficient frequency to eventually CLEANSE the colon itself
THOROUGHLY, and allow the reactions to come in such a nature as to form
normalcy in the eliminations; for, as in times back, the body has suffered
from first the tendency for constipation, later the folds or hemorrhoid
reaction in the lower portion of the colon and throughout the area of
the system in its ejection period, or areas; and THESE are then as effects
that CAUSED these conditions (the toxic forces). These have produced the
pressures in the organs of the hepatic circulation, or liver and kidneys
and the colon itself, and the signs of same are created in the blood stream
itself, or pressure, or improper coordination between venous circulation
and arterial circulation.
In the manner, then, that these would be relieved
- or these applied:
First, every two weeks - until four or six such
colonics are had. In using these, there should be plenty of intestinal
antiseptics used after the cleansing, so there is as little irritation
as may be had.
We would also, BETWEEN those periods, have at least
two to three general manipulations osteopathically (that is, between each
two week period), stimulating the centers of the cerebrospinal and sympathetic
that make for activities in the system as related to the digestion.
It would be better to have two of these treatments each week.
After the sixth colonic irrigation, or when this
is thoroughly cleansed, these need only be taken sufficiently to KEEP
this condition from forming again in the body.
In the matter of diet, these will be kept in the
order that there is sufficient quantity of food for weight, but not the
greases or fats that make for a hard digestion - at least not a great
deal until there is the better condition established in the hepatic circulation,
and until this pressure has been
As we find, there are disturbing conditions in the
general physical forces of the body. These are the result of incoordination
between the eliminating systems of the body. Thus there are upsetting
conditions that arise from poisons not being eliminated through their
proper channel. These are caused by the clogging of glands within
the active forces of organs themselves, with the result of fecal forces
in the colon.
We would take these properties, that will not affect
the body adversely because of the injections that have been necessary
for the prevention of certain conditions in the body, neither will they
work hardships - but it will be necessary that the body not get the feet
wet during the time that these properties are being taken. This
doesn't mean that he can't wash his feet, he must not wear shoes with
the feet wet, for it would cause disturbance in other portions of the
Sulphur, one level tablespoonful,
Rochelle Salts, one level
Cream of Tartar, one level
Mix these thoroughly, as with mortise and pestle.
Every other morning, before the meal is taken, take a level teaspoonful
of this mixture, either in water or dry - whichever way the body prefers
to take it - until the whole quantity has been taken.
We will find that this will change the chemical
reactions, purify the glandular system, and flush the alimentary canal
for greater improvement.
(Q) Will this treatment correct the hemorrhoids?
(A) Will aid. The exercises should correct this condition,
when the alimentary canal is cleansed. Take the exercise daily as
we have indicated for this condition: Standing erect, gradually
rise on the toes, at the same time, raising the hands slowly from the
side, arms extended, until they are high above the head. Then bend
forward as if trying to touch the floor with the finger tips. This
done several times each day, very slowly, will gradually lift the sphincter
muscle and thus remedy the hemorrhoid condition.
Between the first and second series of the Castor
Oil Packs, it would be well to have a colonic irrigation - but very carefully
given, owing to the hemorrhoid condition. Not too much water should
be injected at first, but have the water body temperature and to each
half gallon of water we would add a heaping teaspoonful of salt and a
level teaspoonful of soda, thoroughly dissolved.
(Q) What should be done for hemorrhoids?
(A) Change the conditions in the body. Prepare a combination
of oils to be injected. This may cause a bit of irritation but using
this regularly, about once every ten days, we may eliminate these conditions
entirely. Put two drops of carbolic acid in one ounce of glycerine
and beat together very thoroughly, then add two ounces of Usoline.
Stir, mix or shake this very thoroughly, and then use a baby syringe for
injecting into the rectum - this quantity should be sufficient for at
least two or three injections. This will remove the tensions there.
But it is more important to stir the circulation and the eliminations,
and to remove the toxic forces in the manners indicated. This will
eliminate the soreness in the duodenum, through the alimentary canal and
relieve the tension on the heart, the liver and kidneys. And the
throat should clear up in the first series of applications to the gall
duct and caecum area.
In the circulation we find there are indications
as to how there are disturbances in the trachea and bronchi, that form
what is commonly termed bronchial asthma. This plethoric condition
existing there is irritated by the passage of air to the lungs themselves.
Thus when there is the breathing in of any of those elements that float
in the air, whether it be gaseous or any particles of dust, it produces
irritation that causes coughing - which further irritates the general
condition of the body.
And in this association comes those connections
with the other disturbances that we find in the digestive system as well
as in portions of the eliminating system. For coughing produces
not only a spasm here - as in most cases - in the throat, but also in
This irritation then causes disturbance with the
liver and the kidneys, and with these disturbances there has been produced
a condition in the sphincter muscles of the lower portion of the alimentary
canal in the form of hemorrhoids.
As the present condition exists, it would be better
for the hemorrhoids to be removed by operative measures, provided this
is done when there is a better condition in the general blood supply.
However, these disturbances may be aided and relieved, if certain applications
will be made. And if changes are made in climate, and certain activities
in exercise are taken, we may eliminate these as surely as if they were
removed by a knife - but it would require a much longer period.
If there is the choice of the body not to have the
operation for the hemorrhoids, do prepare a combination of oils to be
injected into the rectum. Put one drop of carbolic acid in an ounce
of olive oil and mix thoroughly, as with mortise and pestle. Then
add this to an ounce of Usoline or Nujol, again stirring thoroughly.
These are to be put together so that every atom of the combination has
the acid in same. A tablespoonful of this injected into the rectum,
about once a week, using a baby syringe, will relieve and take away the
Also take this exercise - this is provided the change
is made in climate and the body decides against the operative measures
- though the operation will remove and relieve the hemorrhoid irritation
Each morning on arising and each evening before
retiring; stand erect - gradually rise on the toes (without any
shoes on) and at the same time gradually raise the hands directly above
the head, straight up. Then bend forward just as far as possible.
Do this three times, night and morning. These will bring better
conditions for this body.
In the blood supply there are the indications of
a form of anemia. This is partially from the interferences that
have arisen by pressures that exist in the transverse colon. This
has caused an activity in the areas about the liver and the gall duct
and pancreas that is preventing the proper assimilation and the proper
cooperation of the gastric flows of the duodenum into the pyloric portion
of stomach, and the combination of the lactics through and from those
glands in the cardiac portion of stomach...
These are disturbances, then, as we find through
the body. The impulses that have first caused these disturbances
have come from subluxations existent in the sacral and lumbar areas.
These necessarily have caused a form of lesion in the 3rd cervical, and
a lateral lesion in the 1st and 2nd cervical...
First begin with a series of colonic irrigations.
These will not only aid in relieving gas and distresses in the abdominal
area but, if done properly, will also relieve those tendencies in the
area of the lower sphincter centers - and relieve those tendencies toward
irritation in the area that is disturbed at times by straining, when there
There should be required just sufficient colonics
to eliminate all of the mucous that will be indicated through the colon
area. There should not be the attempt to remove all of this at once,
but it would require some two, three to four colonics. There should
be at least a week to ten days between the first two, and two weeks between
the next two.
After the system has been purified by the colonics
(not before), begin with making correction osteopathically of those subluxations
in the 3rd cervical, 3rd, 4th and 5th dorsal, 9th dorsal, and through
the lumbar and sacral axis. These should be very thorough treatments,
relaxing the body twice to one period of making adjustments and stimulating
Throughout these periods, especially while the colonics
are being given, keep a laxative diet for the body - concentrated foods
that are not too hard in digestion; such as whole grain cereals and plenty
of citrus fruit juices (though these not at the same meal - rather alternate
these, using the cereals one day and the fruit juices the next day); plenty
of raw vegetables, especially water cress, celery, lettuce, carrots and
the like. These should be prepared in varied manners - with gelatin
at times (Jello), with oils at times, with salad dressings at times, with
fruits, nuts and the like. Go slow on nuts until after at least
the second colonic has been given, else the body might have a headache
spell. But these should be the types of foods to supply the vital
After at least six to eight osteopathic treatments
have been given, then begin to build up the body - keeping thorough eliminations
all the while, even if laxatives are necessary at times. Alternate
these - one time using a mineral laxative, and two times a vegetable laxative
- that proportion, you see. These in their variation will prevent
the greater putrefaction and keep a better balance in the system's activity...
Keep the attitude of constructive thinking.
Not only be good - be good for something purposefully! Plan those
periods of constructive expression of self - we will find all conditions
improving for this body...
(Q) Would operation recently suggested be advisable?
(A) Not necessary if these suggestions here made are followed.
To remove the hemorrhoids we would remove the cause, which is the plethora
in the transverse colon and close to the descending colon, where the pressure
is upon the nerves directly to the heart, sympathetically - or the heart
But do these in the manner indicated - we will have
better conditions for this body.
Do have the colonics scientifically given.
Don't attempt to do them yourself - at least for the first two.
Through these remove the mucus from the colon.
The condition in the circulation, as indicated in
the superficial portion of the body, the catarrhal conditions existing
through portions of the alimentary canal. The tendencies for the
prolapsus in the lower portion of the alimentary canal, the tendencies
for the rectal disorders, all are a part of the general condition and
yet appear to be produced by either the diet or the character of eliminations,
or the combination of cold or congestion...
As we find, it would be well to use the short wave
electrical forces, in that called radio wave; such as might be applied
by Cold here in this vicinity.
Such a treatment would be followed by a massage
with this combination of oils, to supply the superficial circulation -
or by absorption through the lymph and the emunctory centers - to bring
much better conditions for this body; adding the ingredients in the order
Nujol, as the base..................6
Oil of Pine Needles...............1/2
Cedar Wood Oil....................1/2
These will at times tend to separate, but shake
them together and pour a small quantity into a saucer - not on hand to
go back into the bottle, but into a saucer. Dip the ends of the
fingers in same and massage, not only along the edge of the spinal column
but over the diaphragm area, between the breast bone and especially at
the end of the breast bone or sternum, and across the hips and the abdomen,
especially in the diaphragm area. Then massage the limbs also.
About twice each week we would take the short wave
or radio wave electrical treatments, for at least fifteen minutes. Follow
same immediately, first with a good hot shower and rubdown. Then,
while the pores are still open, give this oil massage...
(Q) Digestive difficulties seem to irritate condition of hemorrhoids
is there an ointment or salve?
(A) Use all of these rubs with the oils as indicated, and especially
across the lower portion of the sacral and in the end of the spine.
Do not use oils or lotions, but if there is the continued itching or irritation,
prepare this mixture to be injected:
Glycerine (in which 2 drops
of carbolic acid have been added)...........................1 ounce.
Shake this together thoroughly - thoroughly.
Use an ear syringe. This quantity should be sufficient to use at
least four times, and the condition should be healed before all of these
As we find there are conditions that are very good
and there are conditions that may cause a great deal of disturbance, unless
measures are taken to create a better balance in the whole physical forces
of the body. For there are tendencies towards an unbalanced condition
in the chemical forces of the body, as related primarily to the hydrochloric
and the lacteal flows in digestion, also the chemical reactions between
the pancreas and the spleen, in the supply of nutriment in the digestion
as well as the splenic reaction to the lymph circulation that deals with
the suggestive or imaginative or sympathetic body. These are a part
of the functionings of the spleen. Thus we find at times even in
the present there is an engorging of same. Thus the emotional experiences
of the body at times. Hence the reactions in the whole system as
related to these are the disturbing forces...
As we find, then, there is needed the occasional
good hydrotherapy treatment - say, about one in two weeks. Each
of these should include a Fume Bath using witchhazel, and then a good
thorough oil rub down; followed by the Ultra-Violet Ray preferably with
the green glass injected between the Ultra-Violet and the body.
These will tend to relax the body.
Also supply those elements that are body building,
carrying plenty of vitamins B and B-1, and the B complex - niacin and
iron and phosphorous and the like. These will be found for this
body in KalDak, in the correct proportions. Be mindful as to the
diet. Keep plenty of sea foods, if these are at all desirable -
for all manners of sea food would be well. Vary these quite often.
Fowl should be taken, and the bony pieces are much preferable. The
very small fowl are preferable to the large, and wild game should be taken
whenever practical. Plenty of raw vegetables should be a part of
the diet most every day, celery, lettuce, especially lettuce, and carrots.
These prepared quite often with gelatin would be well for the body, supplying
those elements that, with those properties assimilated as indicated, will
become body building to the system...
(Q) What can I do to improve elimination and permanently cure
(A) Through the diet, as well as the properties indicated for
the digestive forces.
For the hemorrhoids, take this exercise of morning
when arising, before any clothing is put on, and of evening just before
retiring: Raise hands high above the head, at the same time slowly
rising on toes. Then bend forward - don't fall, but bend forward
and touch the floor when you can. Do this at least three to four
times at each period. Don't commence it and then just leave off
or do it occasionally.
Either do it consistently or don't do it.
We will find that this, with the better conditions
through the alimentary canal will relieve these tensions in the sphincter
(Q) What is recommended as a permanent cure for my hemorrhoids?
(A) Use an injection of oils prepared in this manner: To
one ounce of Glycerin add two drops of Carbolic Acid. Mix these
well, then add to three ounces of Usoline or Nujol. Use this in
a child's syringe to inject into the rectal area. This will be found
to relieve those tensions and irritations where the swelling in portions
of the rectal area, and even on the sphincter centers and folds.
Use this about twice to three times each week. It is not necessary
to inject all of this quantity at once - a tablespoonful for each injection
should be sufficient.
For the hemorrhoids, - the better corrective measures
would be this exercise morning and evening:
Standing erect (in the bare feet), gradually raise
the hands above the head, extended to the side, and at the same time gradually
rising on the toes; then bend forward with the hands going toward the
floor. Do this slowly, three times - morning and evening.
Keep this up, and we will get rid of these disturbances - with the other
treatments for the general condition.
As an injection, or as an allaying influence, prepare
To 2 ounces of Glycerine put 3 drops of Carbolic
Acid, then add 2 ounces of Nujol. Shake these thoroughly together.
Then, using a baby syringe, inject a little of this - not all of it, but
just what would be necessary.
In making applications for helpful forces, first
we would prepare a tonic. Purchase these ingredients yourself and
To a gallon of Distilled or Rain Water, add - IN
THE ORDER NAMED:
Yellow Dock Root..........1
(or, if the ground Cincho
Bark is used...that is,Quinine.................1/2 or 1 grain),
Podophyllin (or Mandrake
Root - the Podophyllin is more easily obtained).....1 grain,
Put these in an enamel container, with an enamel
or glass cover on same, and boil together. After it comes to a boil,
let it boil for twenty minutes, stirring most of the time.
Let it cool, and then add to this:
Grain Alcohol (in which
1 dram Balsam of Tolu has been cut)..............2 ounces.
Take a teaspoonful twice each day, before the morning
meal and before retiring. This, to be sure, is to be drained or
filtered when it is first prepared, see?
This will purify the system. Though producing
an irritation, the first few weeks, it will gradually aid the body in
SO MANY of those disturbing forces throughout...
Do take, also, a tea prepared from the Mullein leaves
and the Mullein flower, half and half of same - a pint of each; this in
measure, not in weight; and this put in a quart of water and let it steep
- not boil - but almost boil. Strain, and then add one ounce of
grain alcohol as a preservative. But even then keep this in a cool
place. Take a teaspoonful of this once each day.
Also we would take about an ounce of Saffron Tea
about two to three times each week - this prepared as regular tea would
Do take a good eliminant, at least sufficiently
often to keep the system cleansed; preferably such as Senna Tea - made
from Senna Pods or Senna Leaves.
Apply the very low electrical forces to the body
to change the vibrations of the body; this with the violet ray (hand machine,
bulb applicator). This NEVER over the irritated areas, but preferably
along the spine and over the liver and the spleen area, or around the
In the diet, - beware of too much starches.
Do not overeat of fats of any character. Also sweets are bad.
Preferably use honey or saccharin as the sweets.
Use whole grain, or whole grain breads rather than
the purified or white breads.
Never take any starches in combination with cheeses
or the like, though these separately may be taken in moderation.
Have plenty of fruits and vegetables.
Do include beets and beet tops often in the diet,
but NEVER with vinegar or any acid in same...
(Q) What treatment should be followed for hemorrhoids?
(A) The best is to treat the general condition as indicated.
But the best for the specific condition of hemorrhoids is the exercise,
and if this is taken regularly these will disappear - of themselves!
Twice each day, of morning and evening - and this
doesn't mean with many clothes on! Rise on the toes, at the same
time raising the arms; then bend forward, letting the hands go toward
the floor. Do this three times of morning and three times of evening.
But don't do it two or three times and then quit! Or don't do it
three to four times a week and then quit, but do it regularly! Be
regular with it, each day!
In the foods, we would have more of the relaxing
or bulky nature, that tend to make for laxatives through the system.
These if possible to be had are preferable to taking cathartics or laxatives
that are of an irritating nature to the flow in the peristaltic activity
of the alimentary canal. Then, use such a Bran with figs and such
foods combined with same; as prunes, pieplant, and this character of foods.
These will aid in relieving the distresses...
(Q) Would you advise any particular treatment for hemorrhoids?
(A) If the laxative foods as indicated are taken, these will
aid. When these conditions give particular trouble, we would use
an oil enema; that is, by using a baby enema or bulb we would inject a
combination of oils into the rectum, prepared in this manner:
To 2 ounces of Usoline add 1 ounce of Glycerine
in which two drops of Carbolic Acid have been stirred thoroughly.
Do not inject all of this at once, but about a tablespoonful
of this mixture - whenever there is trouble. And we find this will
relieve the itching as well as the tendency for the dropping of the colon.
But if the precautions are taken when the colonic
irrigations are given, these disturbances should be relieved.
There ARE areas along the spine that need relaxing,
as well as correcting. For, the strain that has been produced by
the jerking or falling of the body has caused pressures in other areas,
- the correction of which would aid in adjusting these conditions.
It is at the hypogastric center in the upper dorsals
that there is needed the greater attention or correction osteopathically,
while those centers in the lumbar and sacral area need coordinating with
the adjustments that will be made there; as well as in the area of the
upper dorsals - that is, the 2nd to the 1st, and throughout the cervicals...
For the disturbance in the areas of the lower sphincter
centers, where there are the tendencies for the hemorrhoids, we would
use this combination of oils as an ointment - but injected with a force
syringe, as in a baby syringe or ear syringe. To one ounce of Glycerine
add two drops of Carbolic Acid. Stir thoroughly together.
Then add two ounces of Usoline or Nujol. Inject some of this right
after each stool. It will be well for the body, for a period, to
relax and to eliminate those folds or protuberances that exist from these
conditions. But the osteopathic corrections should also aid
in correcting this condition.
Digestion very good, considering the strain under
which the system does labor. In the lower digestive system we find
a character of prolapsus, especially in the lower colon; also the tendency
of sluggishness in the ascending and transverse colon; so that the conditions
as exist are of the nature that cause irritation and plethora, by the
blood attempting to gather in portions of the muscles and of the tissue,
to meet the needs - and these produce irritation, and the resultant hemorrhoid
effect as is seen there...
The first consideration should be, that the reactions
should be nearer or more ALKALIN in the system; and for this we would
use those of the Coker Compound, that will bring the DIGESTIVE system
into a near normal reaction; taking this in cold water, quarter teaspoonful,
after the morning or the noon meal. After the evening meal, take
half a teaspoonful in very HOT water. This will RELIEVE this stress
Then, we would take those exercises wherein the
body would, standing erect, swing arms well above head and bending forward
at the same time, or giving the tendency of the UPWARD movement for same.
Take the manipulation, osteopathically, and adjustments,
in the lumbar, lower dorsals, and on to even the upper cervicals.
LOCALLY, apply those properties as would be found
in a combination of THIS character; using this as an ointment following
the stools, or WHEN there is irritation. RESTING, keeping feet up,
will also aid these conditions - as well as aid the general HEALTH of
body, with the taking of the medicinal properties and the manipulations
(which should be had at least ONCE each day). This salve [Tim],
or ointment, would be made in THIS manner:
To 1 ounce of OIL of butterfat, add 1 dram of very
fine POWDERED tobacco, 2 grains or 2 minims of oil of aloe, and 2 minims
of oil of the buckeye kernel. Stir well together and use as an ointment.
Do that. Also use the other suggestions for
the general health; being mindful of the diet, that - as there is being
attempted to create an alkalin reaction in the system through those properties
taken in same - the diets do not work against same, but rather conforming
with same. Not too much meats. The juices may be taken, also
vegetables - vegetable OILS, and the FRUITS of ALL kinds may be taken,
ESPECIALLY the citrus fruits. Ready for questions. We are
through for the present.
Also we find conditions such that, with the superacid
forces, there is a prolapsus in portions of the colon; causing lymph formations,
and the hemorrhoid activities - though not true hemorrhoids, for the irritation
is more from the forming of lymph pockets.
(Q) What causes the pain that appears to be hemorrhoids?
(A) A strain in the alimentary canal, and especially to the sphincter
With the osteopathic corrections for the Eustachian
tube, where it is being congested by the forms that produce adhesions
there, the correction also about the coccyx centers will relieve the tension.
(Q) What remedy would you suggest for the rectal disorder?
(A) The better eliminations, and the exercises each morning before
dressing and each evening when ready to retire. Stand erect (with
not shoes on, of course). Gradually rise on the toes, raising arms
above the head, and bend forward touching the floor - if possible - not
in the beginning. Gradually raise the arms as the body rises, you
see; and then bend forward as far as possible - with the hands reaching
toward the floor.
In removing these [nerve pressures], as we find,
- the mechanical (osteopathic) manipulations or adjustments would be the
more preferable manner.
But apply HEAT - WET HEAT - to the sacral and lumbar
and coccyx area for at least twenty to thirty minutes before the adjustments
are attempted. And then the corrections that are made to coordinate
through the 9th dorsal center, the 3rd and 4th dorsal, and throughout
the cervicals, will relieve the pressure a great deal easier.
These adjustments or treatments, as we find, had
best be taken in series, - that is: Take these about two to three
times a week, at least for the first series of two to three to four weeks.
Then rest from these, or leave them off for two weeks. Then take
them again, twice a week for two to three weeks. Leave off a week,
then take them once a week for a couple of weeks - and so on, graudally
getting farther apart, but continuing until the condition is corrected.
If there should occur a return of the acute disturbances
during the rest period, - we would massage the sacral and the coccyx area,
or close to the end of the spine, with plain table salt saturated with
pure apple vinegar; then apply and electric pad or the like. This
will relieve tension.
But Wet Heat would be applied in making the osteopathic
Later a little low electrical treatment will be
helpful, but DO NOT GIVE the electrical treatments until at least the
second or third SERIES of osteopathic adjustments! This would be
then the low electrical current of the direct would be then the low electrical
current of the direct vibrations.
During the second series of osteopathic treatments
(but not until then), we would take one minim of Atomidine in half a glass
of water each morning before the meal is taken. This will make for
better activity of the glandular system, purifying and cleansing the glands
and ducts, especially of the thyroids.
Of course, keep good eliminations. Use enemas
rather than cathartics.
(Q) What should be done for the hemorrhoid condition?
(A) This has been covered in what we have just indicated.
When we remove the pressures from the end of the spine we will find that
the general activities will relieve those tensions throughout the alimentary
canal, and thus alleviate the causes.
As indicated, there have been lesions in the last
dorsal and first lumbar, - these have been the sources of the disturbances
with this body, combined with the inflammatory condition which existed
at childbirth, - causing - with those activities in the system - an adhesion
in the right portion of the abdominal area.
This has caused and does cause at times a distress
- either when there is too much acidity or when there are not the proper
eliminations through alimentary canal - that makes for pressures upon
the nervous system...
However, we would make applications first, regularly,
about three times each week, of heavy Castor Oil Packs - for about an
hour each time - over the areas from the lower portion of the liver to
the caecum area, and extending low over the right groin.
The next day after the Packs are used, each time,
take at least two teaspoonful of Olive Oil as an aid to the eliminations.
The same day, or the next day, have also a high colonic irrigation, or
high enema; using a saline-soda solution, followed with an antiseptic
solution, to cleanse the colon, to prevent the conditions in the caecum
as well as the ascending colon from becoming engorged, as there is the
inclination to do. These high colonics may be taken by self, you
see; not necessary that such be done otherwise, but - to the quart and
a half of water, body-temperature, add a level teaspoonful of baking soda
and a heaping teaspoonful of table salt, dissolving same thoroughly; being
sure to have the water body-temperature, not hotter, not colder.
Then in the last water, the quart and a half used after the evacuation
of the bowel, put a tablespoonful of Glyco-Thymoline as an intestinal
Use the Packs about three times each week for about
three to four weeks, followed by the Olive Oil AND the enemas each time,
THEN we would have the osteopathic adjustments to
ASSIST in breaking up lesions, and also in emptying the gall duct.
If this is done after the three weeks of applying the Oil Packs as indicated,
we will find it will not only aid in making the proper corrections and
bringing the better conditions for the body, but will strengthen and correct
many of those disturbances through other portions of the system that are
reflexes and contributory conditions to those disturbances which have
In the matter of the diet, - Beware of fried foods.
Beware of citrus fruits and cereals at the same
meal. Not that either of these would be eliminated from the diet,
but do not have them at the same meal.
Whole Wheat cereals (of the cooked cereals) or Maltex,
or cut oats, are well.
With orange juice always add a little lemon with
same; this will act much better with the system.
If meats are taken in any quantity, use only fish,
fowl or lamb.
When potatoes are eaten, use only that portion close
to the skin (and the skin itself), rather than too much of the bulk of
Once a week have artichoke, the Jerusalem type,
as this will aid in cleansing, easing the activity of the kidneys with
the disturbance that has been with the circulation, and with the liver
disturbance. This will also purify the activity through the bladder,
aiding in the relief of those tensions when the acidity causes disturbance
through portions of the system.
Do these and we will bring the near to normal forces
for this body...
(Q) What should be done for the hemorrhoid condition?
(A) Use TIM. Here again we will find, however, the condition
will be materially aided from the very applications indicated. For
this is taken into consideration, - as to the manner in which the colonic
irrigations are to be given, see? As these conditions are purified, these
will be materially aided.
But when those strains upon the system are removed,
this condition will also be aided considerably by the close adherence
to the diet indicated. However, when disturbance is caused in this
direction, use TIM as a local application.
As indicated, though, this is a part of the GENERAL
condition through the abdominal area.
Keep those attitudes which have LONG formed a part
of the approach to every condition, physically, mentally, materially;
with that hopefulness. For the mind, to be sure, has a great deal
to do with how ANY condition is viewed.
(Q) First: T-I-M, a remedy for hemorrhoids, a jar of which
T. B. House holds in his hand. Does this product carry enough Tincture
of Benzoin to act as an effective astringent in reducing the surplus skin
or sac left by the hemorrhoid after it has been assimilated in the system?
(A) In this particular jar here, not sufficient; though it will
act as an astringent. But a small quantity added to same would make
it more effective, though in some types more irritating.
(Q) Do you recommend any changes in this product for use in internal
(A) Necessary that those put in tubes be MORE of the Butterfat
and less of the Tobacco.
First, we would have the high colonic irrigations.
The first two should be given by one well versed in same, or well prepared
for giving such; as it would not be best to remove the WHOLE of the disturbance
through the first application; using in the last waters an antiseptic
AND making for the full cleansing of the colon. The first two, given
by a trained operator, would be given as close as one each week.
Afterwards, about every two weeks, the body may
take the colonic irrigation HIMSELF; by using the colon tube with a Fountain
Syringe. These are MOST necessary. When this is done by self,
use the soda and salt solution in the first water; the proportion being
a heaping teaspoonful of salt and a level teaspoonful of soda to each
quart of water, - and using, of course, about a quart and a half or a
GALLON if necessary to remove the poisons and the accumulation of toxic
forces that are a part of the cause of the disturbance through the colon
area. Have the water body-temperature; not above or below same.
The first two should be given by a trained operator,
for there is sufficient of the phlegm and congestion and mucous that necessarily
must be CAREFULLY taken from the body...
(Q) What should be done for hemorrhoids?
(A) This is another reason why precaution should be taken with
the first of the colonic applications, see? But when there has been
a cleansing, we will find a great IMPROVEMENT in this condition.
With the hemorrhoid, where and when it causes disturbance,
use the ointment known as Tim, - with the applicator where it may be injected.
When this is applied, lie down, - putting the feet much higher than the
head for a few minutes. The third or fourth application should reduce
these to almost nil.
Now as we find, the improvements - not only by the
applications, the corrections that are being made - are not only most
satisfactory but the activities in the open are most EXCELLENT for the
WE would not change any of those applications that
are being made, save IN the corrections in the lumbar and sacral area
should be made from the side rather than from the body lying prone, see?
And we would use the white light AS an aid in creating
the proper connection or associations with the centers along the cerebrospinal
system, as relate to the principal nerve centers of the body. Do
not give these too often, but at least give them once and sometimes twice
a week, or one week once, the next week twice. This would be the
more preferable manner.
Ready for questions.
(Q) Will the hemorrhoidal condition need any special form of
(A) Do as has been indicated for ALL of these! It would
be well for an exercise to be taken for this.
Rising on the toes gradually, raising the arms at
the same time, bend forward as far as possible. This done night
and morning will aid in RAISING the system sufficiently to eliminate a
great deal of the pressure in those areas.
(Q) What causes occasional blood in stool and how can it be stopped?
(A) This arises from a hemorrhoid condition far in the rectal
area. Use this combination of oils as an injection: Add two drops
of carbolic acid to one ounce of glycerine. Beat this thoroughly
together. Then add one ounce of Usoline or Nujol. This should
make sufficient for at least two or three injections. Inject this
into the anus in such a way that we will have control of the conditions
and relieve the areas. Use an ear syringe for the injection.
We would use the Pazo Ointment as a massage for
allaying that disturbance of the hemorrhoids in the rectal area.
Use this only after the stool, and it is not necessary to use it when
there is NOT the protrusion or the violent itching in or through the area.
Now as we find, there are general conditions that
disturb the better physical functioning of the body. These have
been kept rather in abeyance from time to time, and then there are specific
disturbances that more recently have been and are the outcome of a prolapsus
in the descending colon; thus forming disturbances through the sphincter
muscular area where hemorrhoids have been the result - with considerable
bleeding at time of stools, and other unpleasantnesses that arise from
As we find, the use of TIM as an ointment, following
the stools and of evenings when retiring, will make for - soon - a removal
of the causes of the hemorrhoid reaction. If this is injected as
far as possible, this will make for sufficient activity of the sphincter
contractions as to carry same ABOVE those portions where the folds are
Hence we must reduce the activity of the glandular
forces so that we may bring about normal forces for the body, WITH the
corrections of the specific conditions in the areas between the first
and second sphincter muscles in the lower portion of the alimentary canal
- or the conditions that are producing a form of hemorrhoids, with the
condition in the sphincter centers which need expanding; and with the
treatments or applications to reduce the folds that tend to make for this
pressure upon the nerve system.
Yet apparently the body continues to increase in
the weight or in the activity of the system; however, we are gradually
- through the inclinations - storing poisons in the system from the reactions
of the hemorrhoid condition; thus causing greater irritation to the sympathetic
As has been indicated, we do not find the organs
involved as yet to any great extent that would not adjust themselves with
the carrying out of these corrective measures which we will indicate.
First, then, we would bring the removal of the conditions
that cause the irritation; not exactly by operative measures but by the
EXPANSION of the sphincter muscles and centers.
Such applications for the removal of the conditions
in the sphincter centers would be done by a proctologist. As we
find this would be preferable to attempting to treat the conditions in
their present state by local applications.
However, we find that AFTER such treatments by the
proctologist, it would be well to use such an ointment as Tim for the
CORRECTING of the conditions as related to the circulation in those areas.
Also, in combination with such treatments, we would
follow an outline for the diet that would keep the normal activities of
the system in such a way that the physical and mental reactions will be
more in accord with normalcy - and with the desires of the body-physical,
mental and spiritual.
In the diet, then, we would beware of bread; and
not take very often either the white bread OR the whole wheat. Use
rather the rye bread or Ry-Krisp as the ONLY bread that would be taken.
Potatoes should not be a portion of the diet save
occasionally, once or twice a week - and even then we would only eat the
jacket and that close to same, rather than too much of the pulp or bulk.
Do not eat too much of butter or fats.
And twice a day, thirty minutes before the meal,
drink at least four ounces of an equal combination of grape juice and
water. Welch's is preferable. This will only tend to make
for the activity upon the glandular forces as related to digestion, and
also the activities as related to eliminations will be materially aided.
No fried foods at any time.
The meats taken should consist principally, or preferably,
of fish, fowl or lamb. No hog meat at any time.
(Q) What kind of doctor should correct the hemorrhoid condition?
(A) Just as indicated, a proctologist.
(Q) What should be done for the hemorrhoids?
(A) These as we find are a combination of disturbances.
While they are partially blind, they are partially protruding. The
use of TIM for these as we find will be most helpful. Use this after
each evacuation, or the use of the enemas. It may be used as a salve
on the tube when giving the enema. Obtain the Tim in a tube with
injector, so it may be used after each stool more easily. But with
the use of the enemas, the external hemorrhoids will considerably disappear
(Q) Does this body have hemorrhoids?
(A) This body has deep internal hemorrhoids. The use of
Tim with the local injection would be helpful. The massages will
be MOST beneficial, and ESPECIALLY with this watching of the diet and
the use of the Citrocarbonate for acidity.
As we find, the greater distress in the present
is an acute condition from hemorrhoids. This as we find is better
NOT operated upon, if there is the ability to produce the reducing of
the swelling and the irritation; and this as we find may be accomplished
with a little rest (that is, stay off the feet) and the exercises, with
sitz baths of salt water.
For the condition as gives trouble in the rectum
at the present time, we would use a solution or a salve of this character:
Take four ounces of butter (without salt, or fresh butter) just churned,
and reduce by application of heat to the oil of butterfat. To this
we would add three minims of Mentholatum and six grains of Pulverized
Tobacco, with two grains of White Castile Soap. Mix this all well
together and use as a lotion. [GD's note: This was an early
simple formula for the hemorrhoid compound which was later referred to
in the readings as TIM - See.
The condition as exists in the coccyx and in the
rectum, these may be approached from the local condition, and through
adjustments and manipulation for the strained portions as are seen from
old conditions that existed in pelvis region, may be overcome. For
that as is seen in the rectal region, there should be used that ointment
[Tim for hemorrhoids] as has been given for such conditions, WITH the
adjustments and the manipulation in sacral, with the application of the
Violet Ray - will overcome these conditions.
These disorders, as we find, have to do with the
eliminations and their effect upon the system, as well as specific conditions
that may - with the proper applications for corrections - bring much better
physical reactions in the system.
Then, these are the conditions-physical as we find
them with this body,  we are speaking of, present in this room:
In the BLOOD SUPPLY we find indications of the effect
of periods of too much acidity in the system. These are rather as
spasmodic conditions, for the body in its dietetics and in its reactions
is very near to keeping a balance. But from this acidity we find
these conditions in the reactions through the system:
At times there is a quick pulsation in the heart's
activity, though no organic heart disturbance. But with this acidity,
and the tendency for the effects to act with the nerve forces through
the pressures created in the system, there are periods when shortness
of breath is produced; quick palpitation, if there are quick or sudden
movements of the body. The lack of the proper distribution or activity
of the salivary glands is also from this tendency of acidity, that makes
for conditions in the mouth, in the throat at times, as a burning or a
drying sensation; and the lack of the proper amount of the saliva - that
should be alkalin, tends for acidity. Hence those conditions that
Again we find the effects of these conditions in
the eliminations through the alimentary canal, and in the effect produced
in the sphincter muscular forces we find the folds in that portion of
the system becoming irritated in the form of hemorrhoids that give the
distress at times.
These, as we find, are the effects from this condition
of the acidity, affecting the functioning of the ORGANS in elimination.
We would take at times the alkalin properties that
may be had from the Upjohn's Citrocarbonates, taken in periods of one
to two days. These will change the effects of the circulatory system
as to allow better eliminations.
And we would make local applications for the conditions
in the mouth or in the lips, and for those conditions in the portions
of the system affected by the hemorrhoids. Using the combination
of properties found in Tim will bring bettered conditions...
The acidity, then, is a contributory cause to a
pressure in the lumbar and sacral area, the correction of which would
make for the strengthening of the muscular forces and the arches in lower
limbs. This, as we find, would best be done through the adjustments
and the massage OSTEOPATHICALLY.
The same condition exists (and is contributed to
by the acidity and by this pressure) in the knee, where there has been
a weakening through an injury, that tends to make for a weakening in this
particular portion of the system. This would be corrected also by
the manipulations; theapplications or treatments being made specifically
for this by the one making such osteopathic corrections.
Make a correction in the lower axis of the spine,
or in the 4th lumbar and COORDINATE the 2nd and 3rd dorsal and thoughout
the UPPER cervical WITH such a correction in the lumbar area. This
will also strengthen the circulation through the head, aiding the weakening
conditions in the sympathetic and nerve forces and nerve supplies to the
sensory organs; particularly to the eyes, to the ears, and to the throat
and neck - these will be aided in the manipulations by or through the
For those conditions in the colon itself, those
tendencies for the hemorrhoids, we find it would be well for there to
be the activity of body bending forward as standing on feet and touching
the floor bending forward - keeping the knees as stiff as possible.
This exercise, raising the hands far above the head, will help in these
As we find, general conditions in the present are
very good, though there are still those thinned conditions through portions
of the intestinal system, and the chemical forces of the digestive area
become easily upset.
We would keep to the taking, more often, the Saffron
Tea as indicated; and we would change or alternate this at times with
Camomile Tea. For these tend to form, in the regular activities
of the body, the best in the gastric flows for the intestinal disorder.
The chewing of Slippery Elm would also be well.
While it would be necessary that this be done in private, owing to the
looks of it, we find that it will be most beneficial to the activity of
the glands - the salivary glands as well as those in the pylorus, and
in the duodenum also. Swallow the saliva that is indicated in the
chewing of same; not the powder, but the bark itself, see?
Alternate, though, between the Saffron and the Camomile.
Then be precautious as to the diet and the activities...
(Q) What should be done for hemorrhoid condition?
(A) The better eliminations will aid better, and the exercise
of morning and evening. Standing erect, gradually rise on toes with
the hands gradually raised above the head, and bend forward towards the
floor. Do this for at least ten times, upon arising and just before
retiring. This will give the better activity to the system, with
the general outlines followed as indicated - and these, we find, will
be material aids for the body.
(Q) Do I have hemorrhoids?
(A) This is the irritation in the folds of the anus. Use
this combination of oils for injection. To one ounce of Glycerine
add two drops of Carbolic Acid. Shake this thoroughly together.
Then add to this four ounces of Usoline, Nujol or Russian White Oil.
Shake well together, or stir thoroughly. Use this in a force enema,
as in a baby syringe or ear syringe, as an injection; and this as we find
will alleviate the disturbance.
Each morning and each evening do take the stretching
exercise; that is, standing erect raise the arms high above head and then
attempt to touch fingers to the floor (though the body will be far from
it!). Do this at least three to four times, morning upon arising,
and evenings when ready to retire. This will aid, with the administration
of the oil injection.
As we find, there are rather the acute conditions
- and also those disturbances of natures that are inclined to become contributory
causes to the acute conditions.
These, then, are conditions as we find them with
this body, :
In the blood supply we find there is the lack of
those elements in the blood stream, so that there is caused a loss - or
lack - of proper coagulation in the system.
Hence we find in the blood streams there are the
inclinations for the walls of some of the veins to become thinned.
Thus we have a form of anemia, but of a nature that
is of the GLANDULAR system - or the assimilating forces.
Also we find there are those conditions through
the alimentary canal, where especially the sphincter muscles and nerves
are involved from this disturbance.
Hence the conditions that cause a great deal of
itching, and at times the blind hemorrhoids - or protruding of the folds
of the lower portion of the anus.
This also at times causes a great deal of distress,
as well as - through the thinned condition of the folds - a great deal
As we find, these are the greater disturbing conditions.
And, while there are applications needed for the
acute conditions, we find that it is also necessary to build for a GENERAL
condition of betterment through those forces that are weakened and disturbed.
Then, as we find, first:
We would begin with the use of an ointment - as
Pazo Ointment - for injection through the areas where there are the disturbances.
Also we would use Saffron Tea; one dose of same
- a tablespoonful - to be taken each day, preferably in the evening.
Take at least a tablespoonful at the dose. It would be prepared
in this manner: Pour a pint of boiling water over two tablespoonsful
of the Saffron (American Saffron) and let steep as tea. Then this
quantity may be kept and taken each day until the whole amount is taken,
but keep in the ice box, of course.
Stay off the feet as much as practical until the
acute conditions are removed.
Also - for the general conditions, to aid in removing
the causes of these conditions:
Keep away from highly seasoned foods, and from any
form of drinks that carry carbonated waters or that are of any appreciable
Take more of the liver and beef extracts.
Or, the Wyeth's Beef, Iron and Wine will be most
helpful; a teaspoonful at each meal taken. Don't take this UNLESS
the meal IS taken, but with each meal take same.
Fresh vegetables are better than the dried, - so
take them fresh whenever practical.
Then, - each morning and each evening, before there
is anything binding about the body of morning and AFTER disrobing in the
evening, - for at least three to five minutes take this exercise:
Rise gently on the toes (and this without shoes, of course), and at the
same time raise the hands high above the head, then lean forward as much
as possible without losing balance. Do this slowly and consistently.
Do not use too much of laxatives, but rather use
enemas to have the evacuations each day.
Doing these, we will find that these conditions
will gradually disappear.
As we find, there are acute conditions that have
arisen from an overacidity and from cold and congestion. There has
been wrought such an extenuation in the activities of the nerves through
not only the throat and chest as to be most irritating (where there is
a showing of phlegm and of congestion), but through congestion of a more
exaggerated nature in the intestinal tract. Especially is this shown
in the lower portion of the alimentary canal, through the portion of the
sphincter muscular forces becoming so irritated, so engorged, so enlarged,
as to make for excruciating pains through the abdominal area, through
the back - and especially in those extensions in the body when there is
the attempt of eliminations through those portions of the anus itself.
In the present, as we find, we would first have
a manipulation osteopathically to relax the body thoroughly.
Then we would use an enema - not of a large tube
but a small, so as to inject just as hot a saline solution as the body
can stand; at least a hundred degrees of temperature. Saline with
soda. This, as we find, would soften or relax the body, and thus
- with again a manipulation on the morrow, and keeping the equilibrium
of the body in such a nature by the feet or the lower portion of the body
being somewhat elevated - we should relax and relieve the body.
As to the exercises, take those with the body standing
on the feet - extend arms as high above head as possible, rising on the
toes, and then bend gently forward bringing the fingertips towards the
floor. Do this two, three to four times a day. It will be
These we would do in the immediate...
(Q) What should be the proportion of salt and soda and water
for the enema?
(A) A level teaspoonful of the soda and a heaping teaspoonful
of salt to the gallon of water.
(Q) There should be more salt than soda?
(A) More salt than soda for this particular condition.
This, you see, arises from not what is ordinarily indicated in giving
an excess of the soda in the solution (as infectious forces). This
arises from plethora, from the nerve condition and from the lymph, and
the areas where there is the protruding of the folds in the hemorrhoids
as well as - as indicated - in the sphincter muscles.
(Q) How often should the enemas be given?
(A) Not more than once a day, unless the pain becomes more severe.
If the pain becomes more severe, then bathe across the lower portion of
the spine with the laudanum and Aconite solution (in the proportion of
three parts of Laudanum to one part Aconite), and apply over same the
hot Epsom Salts Packs; this across the sacral and lumbar - lower lumbar
(Q) Should no other foods at all be taken except the citrus fruits?
(A) These, as indicated, for the next day or so. After
that we may gradually come to the more activative forces.
(Q) What should be done for the hemorrhoids?
(A) Use Tim. This as we find will, with the lesser activity
as labor or anxiety, with more outdoor exercise, bring bettered conditions.
Use Tim in the tube that is injected, for these
are not only of the protruding nature but of the second sphincter center.
(Q) Have noticed slight hemorrhoid condition. Would like
to clear same up. Please give full directions.
(A) Use TIM with the injection or tube, that will make for the
eliminating of the disturbance.
(Q) What causes the rectal irritation and itching, and what will
relieve and finally cure same?
(A) These come from the hemorrhoids, which is a part of the general
effect from lack of proper eliminations. These will be materially
aided by the use of those juices; also the local application of Pazo Ointment
occasionally - used with the tube, of course, that makes the injection
high into the rectal area.
(Q) Is the exercise for hemorrhoids [as given in 2823-2] being
(A) This is very good but we would use the injections as given
for this and allay the tendency for the protruding folds in the sphincter
centers in the anus.
(Q) Should combinations of glycerin, carbolic acid and mineral
oil also be used?
(A) This has been given before [in 457-9]. Prepare and
use as indicated. Do mix the glycerine and carbolic acid very thoroughly
before adding the Nujul or Usoline.
(Q) Can enlarged blood vessel at rectum [hemorrhoids] be cured?
(A) By the application of THIS as a combination, and applied
To one ounce of Glycerine add two drops of Carbolic
Acid. Stir well. Then add to this one ounce of Russian White
Oil. Use as an ointment, and as an injection occasionally.
(Q) Give treatment for hemorrhoids.
(A) Cut out much of these activities and then take the regular
exercise of a morning when first arising, and at night just before you
lie down. Do this twice in the morning and twice at night; these
will soon disappear. When ready to retire, gradually rise on the
toes and raise the hands at the same time till on the toes and then attempt
to touch the floor - you'll be a long ways from it - but go in that direction.
Do this before the clothing is put on of morning and night before retiring.
This will not require very long. The use of Tim when there is protruding
will soon eliminate those disturbances and this, with the exercise and
then the precautions, will soon eradicate the conditions altogether.
Many conditions are very good throughout the body.
There are still, however, those tendencies for any congestion or any tautness
produced by toxic forces, - whether from the digestion and lack of full
eliminations or from cold or the like, - to produce upsetting conditions;
from those centers and areas where there have been those disturbances
from straining muscular and tendon tissue. Thus the headaches, the
eyes, the dryness in throat, the anxiety after eating, not full or complete
rest after the periods of attempted relaxation or sleep...
Hence as we find, occasionally, - at least once
in two weeks or once in ten days, - we would have a thorough relaxation
from a cabinet sweat followed by a deep, thorough Swedish massage.
Also about once in two weeks, - though not at the
same period, - have a thorough osteopathic RELAXING treatment.
(Q) Please explain in detail just what treatments I should take
for the hemorrhoid trouble.
(A) The better relaxation, as indicated. And then an exercise
taken three or four times, morning before dressing and evening when ready
to retire. This gradually will bring a great deal of relief. Standing
erect, rise gently on the toes, with the arms extended high above the
head - these gradually being raised, you see. As the body rises
on the toes, gradually raise the arms also. Then bend forward as
far as possible. Do this at least three times, morning and evening.
If there is the continuance of great disturbance,
use Pazo's Suppositories. These will be beneficial.
As we find, we would have some corrections made
(in the Hudgins' [Dr. F. C. Hudgins, Jr., D. O.] manner), - especially
in the 3rd and 4th dorsal, and then in the 9th dorsal centers; with special
reference to stimulating the liver activity. And thus we may prevent
a great deal of disturbance, we will eliminate more of this disturbance
to the lymph circulation through the head and throat that has caused some
disturbance, and make for better general conditions. Take about
three or four, then rest or wait at least a couple of weeks, then take
two or three more.
(Q) Please tell me what I should do about hemorrhoid trouble.
(A) Take the directions as we have indicated for a better activity
through the whole of the hepatic circulation.
Then each morning and each evening, before dressing
of morning and when ready for bed at night, - with the feet bare, of course,
- we would take this exercise: Stand erect, - gently, gradually
raise the hands high above the head, preferably the palm forward, gradually
rising on the toes at the same time the hands are raised, see? Then
bend forward, just as far as possible. Do this for two or three
minutes, or at least fifteen attempts to bend forward, - but go through
the whole motion, that is, gently raising the hands above the head, at
the same time rising on the toes. These are to be done together,
to bring the exercising of the muscular forces WITH the corrections indicated.
Use an ointment such as TIM after each evacuation,
or when there are tendencies for the protruding.
As we find, conditions in some ways are much improved
from those as we have had here before; though there are acute conditions
which have been indicated, that may be called the after effects, - or
the condition of the lymph circulation, and as related to the eliminations
of the system.
These have formed in the areas of the sphincter
muscles those folds that have been inclined to fill and then to cause
a great deal of activity at those periods of the excretions from the system.
Under the existing conditions, we find that these
may be easily rectified by the use of an enema prepared in this way and
manner, - this used about once every week; each time preparing it in this
To 1 ounce of Glycerine add 7 drops of a heavy antiseptic,
- as Carbolic Acid. Mix this very thoroughly; then add it to 1 pint
Use this in a syringe that may FORCE same, as a
pump, you see; with the body reclining upon the knee and the elbow, or
knee and shoulders.
Then the general activities of the body are to be
kept in a normal way and manner.
After the heavier meal each day take a level teaspoonful
(Q) What caused the passing of the blood through the bowels on
Saturday, and what made the body feel so terribly tired?
(A) The conditions that formed in the lymph pocket, thus allowing
for the emptying of same. Thus the character of enema indicated
is not only to act as a healing influence and to prevent the folds reforming,
but is to allay the disturbance and prevent the tissue that has broken
from becoming scar tissue and again causing disturbance.
There are indications of there HAVING been the disturbance
through the lacteals, the gall duct area, as has been indicated to which
the body is inclined, or the tendencies with the gall duct and the liver
These as we find have responded very well, though
there needs to be those precautions.
And we would continue with the Oil Packs across
the abdominal area, extending to the caecum; with the eliminations increased.
In the present, however, colonics would be better
than cathartics; for there are poisons sufficient in the colon area in
the present to cause some disturbance, especially with those tendencies
in the lower portion of the descending colon where there has been, as
indicated, the tendency towards prolapsus and the disturbance in the areas
from which the disturbance of the hemorrhoids has been a portion of the
Hence use the soda and salt solution, with the colon
tube; following same with the Glyco-Thymoline as an intestinal antiseptic.
Be very well to take a few drops of Glyco-Thymoline
internally, each day - in water - for a few days at the time.
Then be very careful about lifting and pushing things
about; getting overheated and overtaxed or overvexed.
And if these are kept and adhered to, we should
bring better forces for this body.
Of course, it is not necessary to keep the Packs
continuously; but so long as there is the least soreness or heaviness
in the liver and gall duct area and the caecum, use same.
Let the use of the colon tube be not too close together,
but sufficient to keep the colon cleansed from the accumulations as naturally
arise by the system's reaction to the application of the external influences.
(Q) What should the body do for proper eliminations?
(A) The exercise and massage will be helpful.
It would be well that high enemas be taken occasionally
to alleviate not only the poisons, but to produce for the system a better
peristaltic movement; for the inflammation and the character of the activity
of the ducts of the liver tend to DRY secretions throughout the intestinal
In using the high enema, to two quarts of water
add a level teaspoonful of salt and a heaping teaspoonful of baking soda.
In the rinse water, or last water injections, we would add the Petrolagar;
necessary that it be stirred in the tepid water. This will aid in
reducing the tendency for inflammation, reduce the acidity, and be helpful
to those tendencies for the accumulations in the whole lower portion of
the intestinal tract for hemorrhoid formations.
(Q) What should be done for the hemorrhoid condition?
(A) Use Tim as an ointment. This a portion of the trouble
with the eliminations. Well that the exercise, too, be taken morning
and evening; stand erect, arms straight above the head, bending as near
as possible for the fingers to touch the floor, three, four, five or six
times, see? This tends to pull or placate that tendency for the
pressure in the abdominal area, and will assist in relieving that condition.
We have the body here,  - this we have had
before. Now, while conditions are somewhat bettered from that we
have had at some periods, there is a tendency in the colon, in the WHOLE
of the intestinal tract, and especially in the colon, for that of CONGESTION,
or of the WALLS of the intestines not to function normally; acting more
as cold or congested areas, and PRODUCING at times in portions of same
very disagreeable conditions as to, in the lower portion of same, the
sphincter muscles become so lax, by the inactivity of those portions in
the turn in transverse and descending colon, as well as in the upper caecum
area, or those of the ascending and transverse, that produce irritations,
as to make even for the exhuming or bleeding of those protruding portions.
[Hemorrhoids] These, as we find, will be aided materially, [if]
will the body [will] at least twice a day take that exercise of standing
with hands high, or circular motion, bringing hands high above the head
and carrying them forward, with the body bending toward the floor - forward,
see? Do this for two to three minutes, two or three times each day.
Also take at least ONCE each day, a tablespoonful of psyllium seed, with
FOUR tablespoonsful of very hot water - see? Let 'em cool, of course,
before they are eaten - but this stirred well to-gether. This would
preferably be taken in the evening, or WITH the evening meal. This,
as we find - with care as to the diet - do not take too much astringents
of any kind, nor too much of condiments, not too much of anything that
carries too much salt in same.
We would also use an ointment that will relax and
take from the system those of the feverish condition. Tim is good
in this respect, but we would add WITH same those of that as would be
found in some of the pillery (?) [pilary?] [hemorrhoid] ointments - Pazo's
is good - that may be injected to the region of the upper muscular traction,
see? These, as we find, in a few days should relieve the condition.
As we find, while the whole of the eliminating system
is involved - as is indicated not only by acute disturbances in the sphincter
muscular forces, in the form of hemorrhoids, but as between the deeper
circulation and the superficial; thus causing the swelling in portions
of the body - in the face and head and neck, as well as somewhat in the
extremities; hands and feet, or arms - this is more in the present a condition
from an unbalanced chemical reaction in the bodily forces and functionings.
We would first, then, in the immediate:
Under the directions of Dr. Mary Miller, [D.C.],
have those adjustments in the lumbar axis, the dorsals from the 5th or
Also with same we would have those low electrical
treatments that will set up the heat vibration as between the eliminations
of the superficial and deeper circulation - through the alimentary canal.
Both with the adjustments and the electrical forces,
stimulate particularly the activities of the eliminations - or the emptying
especially of the duodenum.
Stimulate those centers from which the impulse of
activity arises for these portions of the eliminating system.
Every other day we would take Calcios twice a day
as a heart stimulant and as a blood stimulant by its assimilated activity.
Take it morning and evening, every other day, until at least it has been
taken for ten days. Take about what would cover, thinly, a sunshine
wafer or Cracker, see?
We would also stimulate eliminations through alimentary
canal with the oil; that is, Usoline - or Russian White Oil.
We would have - rather under the supervision, though,
of Dr. Miller - we would have colonic irrigations. This would be
done gently, owing to the rectal disturbances.
Use Tim as a healing application.
This, combined with the eliminations, the stimulations
to the whole of the system - by the electrical forces AND manipulations
- should bring, in ten days, the much nearer to NORMAL conditions.
Do these, then, almost every other day for at least
(Q) What causes the condition of the rectum, and what should
be done to bring normalcy?
(A) This, as has been given, is a tendency of prolapsus in the
descending colon, and when the system from any cause is overacid, then
the folds of the rectum in their higher elements are tended to be distended
[hemorrhoids], and to produce irritation, itching [pruritus ani], and
the like. This is BEST relieved by the keeping of the system more
alkalin and less acid, and may be aided materially by the use of those
properties in the ointment that has been given - in Tim, when these are
irritating; but will the system be [if the system will be] kept more alkalin,
we will find there will be less of this irritation. An exercise
also taken twice each day, morning and evening - will the body [if the
body will] bend forward, touching or tipping the floor in front of self
- will aid in keeping up, and preventing this irritation. ACID is
the cause of the irritation.
In making the applications, then, we would use the
high enemas to relieve the pressure in the colon, and to allow the better
circulation throughout the system.
It will be necessary that precautions be taken and
that this be done with the idea in mind that there must not be too great
an irritation to those portions in the system that have caused so much
disorder and trouble, from the tendency of the constipation to produce
the hemorrhoids and their resultant conditions in the system.
But use the type of enema that will gradually break
up those impactions; and there should ever be used an antiseptic with
each enema taken (and there should be at least two taken each week, until
six or eight have been taken, see?).
At each operation in giving the enema, you see there
should be - at some portion of the period - the use of Petrolagar and
Glyco-Thymoline in the waters injected. Also at a portion of the
period there should be used those properties of bicarbonate of soda (plain
baking soda) and salt. The proportions would be as this:
With the first injections, use - to the gallon of
water - a level teaspoonful of salt and two teaspoonsful of soda.
When the oils are used, put in a tablespoonful of
the oil (or Petrolagar, and be sure to use the Non-acid) and a tablespoonful
of the Glyco-Thymoline, to a quart and a half of water.
We would be mindful that the general stimuli for
the system be kept.
Keep the body quiet; and it would be well that those
properties given for the allaying of the inflammation and swelling (in
the activities of the conditions in rectum) be used. These may be
applied - for the higher portions - in the enema, with the oils that are
used with same - as K.Y. [?] Jelly.
(Q) There is a piece of flesh at the base of rectum. What
is it and how may it be removed?
(A) It is a hemorrhoid condition. Use Tim and it will be
For the condition as we find in the lower portion
of body, or for the piles [hemorrhoids], use that as has been given as
a specific for these conditions [Tim], as are produced by the relaxing
of the muscles of the lower portion of the intestinal tract. Using
this whenever necessary, injecting as far as possible with the body.
We would apply this property, which we find would
be a specific for such conditions: [Hemorrhoids] To the oil as would
be found from 1/4 pound of butterfat (fresh) add:
Pulverized Tobacco or Snuff.....1 dram, with
Mentholatum, or oil of same.....2 minims, with
Tincture Iodine.................1 drop or minim.
In the structural portions of body, - as indicated
in times back, - there has been a disturbance in the coccyx end of spine
[causing periodic hemorrhoids]. This, with the injury or pressure
produced in the sacral [from auto accident shock on 10/9/42] has caused
a greater trouble, with a disturbance already in the pelvic organs.
As we find, these would be best regulated by those
corrections taken osteopathically to correct those conditions in the sacral,
the lumbar and the coccyx area.
(Q) Should I take the bracing exercise, with the feet against
the wall, even when the hemorrhoid condition is present, or wait until
it clears each time?
(A) Take the bending exercise if the hemorrhoid condition is
present; stretching arms high above the head, rising on toes and touching
the floor. Feet far apart, though, - not trying to hold them close
As we find, the corrective measures osteopathically
administered would be well, or chiropractically - if PROPERLY administered
- would be the most helpful; and then the GENTLE rubs across the
small of the back with the Mutton Tallow, Spirits of Turpentine and Camphor,
with hot packs.
Then we would keep precautions as to diet, not overbalancing
in this or that direction; using the Pazo Ointment for the hemorrhoids;
and we will find better conditions for this
Ready for questions.
(Q) Should the same type of exercise be continued?
(A) As just indicated, - the standing erect, gently raising the
hands, see, high over the head, rising on toes and BENDING forward.
Do this two, three times morning and evening.
(Q) Does the indentation at the end of the spine have anything
to do with continual hemorrhoid irritation?
(A) As just indicated, the conditions here have gradually caused
a great deal of trouble, by the lack of keeping up the adjustments AND
the exercises as indicated. This has never been fully corrected,
you see. The PRESSURE as created in portions of the spine higher
up HAS been relieved, but the sources - or the straining of the end of
the spine have not been.
(Q) Should I try to enlarge the anus by any local application,
or would this be harmful?
(A) No; this would not be the better. If this is straightened
we will find there will be the enlarging.
And there are those effects, to be sure, of the
weakening conditions brought about by the cold and congestion which has
existed, as well as the effects with the nervous system and a general
irritation from the hemorrhoids which have caused and do cause disturbances...
For the hemorrhoids, - use Pazo's Hemorrhoid Remedy,
with the tube, as a manner of application. Apply this when ready to retire.
Also, just before it is applied we would take the exercise of rising on
the toes and bending forward, as well as rising on the toes and bending
to first one side, then the other.
Now, as we find, conditions are not as good in the
general physical forces of the body as when we last had same here. There
are the tendencies in system, as we find, from the disorders that have
been indicated in the gall duct area, produced by the system's becoming
clogged from those reactions in the diet, the activity, with the tendency
which already existed...
In the present we would have the gall duct or gall
bladder DRAINED osteopathically, with sufficient treatments to coordinate
the general system. There should be at least about sixteen such
treatments and adjustments.
After the osteopathic treatments are well begun,
then we would take at least once each day a half to a quarter teaspoonful
of AL-CAROID, after the evening meal.
And we would occasionally, once a month or the like,
take the CAROID Bile Salts tablets, that are not purgative to the gastric
juices of the stomach but work more with the ducts of the liver, spleen,
pancreas, and the lower portion of the duodenum.
About a week after the osteopathic treatments have
been begun, we would also begin with the internal bath ocasionally, or
the high enema; taking at least once or twice a week a general massage
with exercise sufficient in the limbs, the upper and lower, in the gymnastics.
Following the rubdown, after the work out, we would use the Radio-Active
Appliance in equalizing the circulation that would be stimulated through
the activities and in the internal circulation...
(Q) What should be done for the colitis or hemorrhoids?
(A) As indicated, the first portion of the treatments should
be to EMPTY the ducts. Later there should be the exercise as indicated,
and the application for the necessary drainages to be set up in the system;
and these may bring the correction now for this body, .
(Q) Five doctors have signed the report which I am holding. They
state it is a tumor. Is their statement correct?
(A) From their point of view, correct.
As we have indicated, it is lymph that forms into
a condition in which there gathers blood, through the circulation and
through the activities which cause the disturbance.
When there is the adherence to those suggestions
which we have made as to the diet, as to activities, as to the rest, as
to the applications taken internally, we find that the activities are
farther and farther apart - as to causing this to disgorge itself.
And this disgorgement, and then through those applications
which we have indicated, or the keeping in line with the suggestions so
that the system may be kept sufficiently well or strong to absorb same,
will be much more preferable than attempting to operate - under the existent
conditions. For it would require opening the portion of the colon
itself, which - unless there was a long, LONG period of quiet - would
cause trouble that would NOT be relieved.
(Q) What advice to the body at this time?
(A) Consider well all that we have indicated from time to time
as to EACH of those conditions described, since its first inception through
those disturbances which arose from cold, congestion, and the extenuation
of those conditions when there were the hemorrhoids that had gradually
arisen to folds in the system itself.
And then keep in that way of activity in which this
condition may be best handled, as we find, WITHOUT resorting to operative
measures - AS YET, ANYWAY.
(Q) Will Tim cure or dry up these hemorrhoids without any other
(A) Consistently used, it will not only remove the cause but
remove the hemorrhoids.
(Q) How far up are the hemorrhoids, in inches?
(A) Inch and a half.
The body should not, if there will be the proper
applications, be overanxious regarding the appearance of a little blood
at times in the stool.
Now we find these conditions have localized themselves
more through the lower portion of the second sphincter muscular centers
and in the anus itself.
Hence if there will be morning and evening the exercise,
not the stooping but the bending - raising the hands high above the head
- as these are slowly raised, rising on toes, drawing IN the deep breath
through the nostril - as the body is bent forward, with the fingers toward
the floor, exhale through the mouth - doing this SLOWLY, consistently,
for a minute or such, morning and evening - we may find conditions on
Also begin by taking internally two to three times
a day Pure Olive Oil; not gobs or spoonsful but half to a teaspoonful
should be sufficient.
After each stool, and there is the cleansing, then
use Tim as an ointment and an injection. This having an astringent
and a curative and an allaying reaction to the inflammatory conditions
will, with the exercise, with the food for the intestinal system, tend
to eliminate entirely the disturbance.
Keep, though, towards the diet; that there may be
the better reaction through the system. There may be taken at times
meats but no great quantity of condiments or of pickles or of those things
that produce an activity upon the flow of the lymph through the lower
portion of the abdominal area - or hinder the flow as such do.
These kept, with that as has been indicated, should
make for the removal and correction of the conditions in the present.
In the other general forces of the body, the mental
attitudes, these we find very good. Anxiety has caused and does
cause those disturbances at times, but these come and go with the changes
in and surrounding the body...
(Q) How large are the hemorrhoids?
(A) They vary according to the protuberances.
(Q) Are there any external hemorrhoids?
(A) At times.
(Q) Are the hemorrhoids growing, or will they remain the same
(A) If it will do as has been indicated, they will be eliminated!
For the condition as is seen in the mesenteric system,
and the trouble as experienced with the body in this manner, well that
that of the salve [Tim for hemorrhoids] be used, as the rectum shows irritation
from the system showing congestion or laxness. This would remove
irritation by the use of this, being injected in the rectum after each
stool, see? a small quantity on finger or swab may be applied to
these protruding parts, or in the mouth or end of rectum, see?
(Q) Are [osteopathic] treatments being given correctly?
(A) The treatments are being given very good. Do not UNDO
same by TOO MUCH activity, but sufficient that the muscular forces become
NOMINALLY tired, not OVER strained.
(Q) What shall be done with reference to hemorrhoidal condition
(A) Those applications as are given for correction of such conditions
through the manipulation, are the better applications.
Yes, we have the body, . This we have
had before. Now, we find many changes with the physical forces of
the body since last we had same here. There are accentuations, or
have been accentuations of conditions as respecting the eliminations and
the effect as has been brought about by same in the form of hemorrhoids,
also the natural depression as such brings to the body.
For that condition as has existed in the colon and
through the portions of system where eliminations are active, and where
the pile or hemorrhoid has caused and does cause trouble, we would use
those of the Petrolagar - the alkalin character, and in each tablespoonful
of this taken we would add three drops of Pepsin - lactated pepsin, and
take at least two tablespoonsful each day, preferably on arising of morning
and before retiring.
We would also use that of the ointment known as
Tim's, or Tim, and we will find we will bring relief and bettered conditions
for the body ...
For those conditions that produce irritation in
the eliminating channels [hemorrhoids], with that being applied [the Tim]
we would take those exercises which will stretch arms high above the head,
bending the body forward, stooping as far forward as the body can.
Take this exercise at least three times each day, for three to five minutes
each period, see?
Yes - these conditions are not so good in this body.
There are not wholly the proper applications for the manipulations as
have been given for this body, for the eliminations and the distraughtness
is caused throughout the mesenteric system, allowing the poisons to come
back into the system in such condition as to produce stress and strain
on the nerve centers from their radiation of locomotion. THIS should
not be. These may be acted upon in TWO different directions.
PREFERABLY, we would give as this: First CLEANSE the system, using
those properties as will be in any of the salts, or that that excites
the mucus membranes of the intestines itself. This will not overtax
the lower portion of the system to the extent as to cause greater distress
with the hemorrhoids, or those conditions as exist in the lower portion
of the body, but as these are begun we would then use that of the high
enemas to cleanse the colon, and WITH these thrown out we will find the
poisons being eliminated.
Then, begin with the manipulations in such a manner
as to cause better distribution of the circulation, both from the heart's
action in the upper cardiac, or a greater flow of blood to head, and a
greater flow of blood to the LOWER portion of the body. These will
be accomplished by the RELEASING or relieving of the pressure in those
centers in the upper cervicals, in the brachial center, and in the lower
lumbar center. We will then have a better anterior circulation.
Still keep the stimuli through the application of the equalizer in the
system, but cleanse the system thoroughly first - alimentary canal - also
those of the COLON, and we will find these will, followed then nearer
in line with that as has been given the body, improve.
Yes, we have the body here, , - this we have
had before. Now, we find there are a good many changes in the physical
forces of the body from that as we have had before. There are many conditions
as were indicated, and as existed, that show for an accentuation in the
present. These, especially, have to do with those of the colon,
and especially that condition in the rectum, where distresses are seen
from the enlarging of those of the muscular forces and attachments thereto,
that cause distress and worry. These, as we find, make for the nervousness,
as does the NERVOUSNESS make for this condition with the form of prolapsus
as exists in the descending colon. Also this makes for those conditions
as we have with the blood supply.
As we would find, these would be as for those that
would make for the immediate relief, as WELL as for a PERMANENT relief
of these conditions.
First, we would keep off the feet; applying heat,
PREFERABLY that of the saturated solution of Epsom Salts, across the lower
lumbar and sacral and coccyx, keeping the feet elevated to a great extent;
and then we would apply, as an ointment, that of Tim.
When these are RELIEVED of so much of the soreness,
we would find that the proper precautions would be the removal OF the
cause, or of those of the hemorrhoids as exist, in operation. This,
as we find, would be better taken - not by knife, but by the manipulations,
and by those of the cords as may be used in removal of same; else we may
expect to find distresses produced through the formation of double outlets
in the region.
We would also have those of the corrective measures,
as has been given, for this condition existent in the colon itself. These
would be by the reduction of the acidity in the system, and by the cleansing
of same through the use of the irrigations, and using oil, and those of
the conditions as make for EASING of same in an enema OF oil, and this
that applies in same, see? Ready for questions.
(Q) Any special diet?
(A) Those throughout the treatments should be rather of the pre-digested,
and those that do not cause STRAIN on the system.
(Q) How often should the Tim be applied?
(A) At least two or three times each day. We are through
for the present.
In the digestive system, while there is at most
periods very good digestion so far as the activities of the gastric forces
and the balances there at most periods, but in the lower portion of digestion
and in the transverse colon there are those disorders from the accumulations
from inactivity, or the pressures that come from the inactivity of these
portions of the body, that give off a reflex action which makes for accumulations
of gas, and of a plethora, in the activities of the forces that produce
the pressure - that is felt in the upper portion of digestion, or in the
pyloric and cardiac and of the stomach itself. This being
of a reflex nature, we find it is at times distressing to the body - and
at other periods it is of the nature of a prolonged uneasiness, making
for - then - the carrying off or drawing away the circulation through
the lymph and hepatics to relieve those portions in the pylorus and in
the lower end of stomach; causing a dryness that has produced and does
produce those reactions in the lower end of the colon itself proper.
These make for those distresses that are seen there in the form of the
folds, in the activity of the eliminations from the body, in such measures
at times as to produce the lacerations and causing pains in the activity.
In the other direction, or the effects that these
produce on the system, these are rather of the reflex nature, and with
the correction of the conditions as of the specific nature we would find
that the others would disappear; for the balance of the system as related
to the activity of the mental over the physical - and the dissemination
of the vibrations that are or may be created by the mental activities
of the body - may AFFECT, and DOES affect the body in such manners and
measures that - with the proper incentives for the system-physical to
adjust itself - would bring about nearer normal conditions.
Then, in meeting the needs of the physical conditions,
as we would find, first there would be those applications for the activities
in the system as related to the irritations in the form of hemorrhoids;
applications that would relieve the pressures and reduce the swellings,
so that there might be those applications that would reduce those conditions
in the transverse colon, thus removing the pressures there.
We would use as an ointment those combinations that
have been or are prepared in that called Tim. These we would use
in the order that has been outlined for the use of same.
Take internally into the system those properties
that would make for a better conformity of action with the gastric forces
of the stomach itself, with the emptying of the pylorus and with the creating
of a better activity in the system as related to keeping an even balance
in the blood stream, and in the flow of those forces that make for recuperations
to those portions where there is the NECESSITY of the better coordination
of the system, as related to creating the conditions that are necessary
with the bringing of better coagulations; for when tissue becomes involved
- either from pressure produced by the outflow of blood from portions
of the system or the system becoming clogged by the inactivity of the
circulation through same, from pressure - either produced by gas or by
ANY form of pressure in the body - it becomes necessary that these be
RECUPERATIVE in the impulse that carries the circulation through the affected
Then, we would take half a teaspoonful of Alcaroid
after each meal, for a period of three to five days. Then we would
take this same dosage once each day until the system has adjusted itself.
Use the enemas to cleanse the colon.
As we find, these will bring the greater ease and
relief for the distresses of the body.
In the mental forces, these are well. Little
may be given other than, keep that thou hast held - and do hold as the
principles of activity in the mental body; for the SPIRIT is willing,
and - as known of self - when the self allows the spiritual force and
the recognition of the fatherhood of God in the activity through the system
- the mental, the physical, the spiritual forces coordinate one with another.
