In the novel, there is need for an antidote to mercury, which was the usual treatment for syphilis. The antidote given was copious amounts of raw egg white, which is still used today as an antidote to mercury or lead poisoning, because the albumen in the egg white binds to the heavy metal and is then ejected by the body. In the book, the character so affected had frequent bouts of vomiting.

Last night, I was staying with my daughter’s family. After we’d all retired, my grandson started coughing and coughing. It went on and on. He’d caught a cold. I poked around in the kitchen and found some old, crystallized honey and a squeeze bottle of lemon juice. I managed to liquify enough honey to get [...]
A solar oven is a device that harnesses sunlight to create heat energy. It doesn’t use any fuel, and it doesn’t cost a thing to operate it. It can help slow down the deforestation and desertification caused by harvesting natural resources which are used in conventional fuel production. In theory, no more trees would be cut for use in making charcoal, if everyone switched to using solar ovens. And while the use of a solar oven is not necessarily feasible under all circumstances, a better understanding of their use can open up many doors and new possibilities.
If there is anything you own, absolutely and without strings, it is your body. How absurd it would be to say about it, “I really want to improve the health of this body, which actually belongs to my (husband, wife, doctor, mother, father, minister, priest, best friend, nutritionist, trainer, coach, team, boss, or dog).” It [...]
Do you have a blender? A grocery store nearby? If you do, you can make a tonic for the immune system very, very easily. This is an old recipe, and I’ve seen it called many things. I’ve always called it Immune Tonic. That seems to describe it perfectly. It destroys bacteria, viruses, and fungi on [...]
Sometimes we hear people say that they tried some herbs to handle a physical problem and “it didn’t work.” Why is that? Did they take the wrong thing? (Of course, that is always possible.) Is it tainted or contaminated? (That certainly happens in our toxic world.) Does it really not work for anyone? (Unlikely, or [...]
An Alternative Energy Solution It is a well known fact that fuel cells are a potential alternative to the internal combustion engine. In fact, even though fuel cells are still in their pilot stages of development, many car manufacturers have prototype vehicles that operate on fuel cells. The application of fuel cells is, however, far [...]
