How is tuberculosis cured without drugs?
Can tuberculosis be healed without medical drugs, without alternative drugs of any kind - instead only using diet and sleep?
Modern Natural Hygiene combines two no-drugs dietary healing methods:
  • century-old Natural Hygiene (Orthopathy, Science of Health) methods
  • newer research about the insulin mechanism (typically used in low-carb, hunter-gatherer, Atkins, sugar-buster methods).

    Follow the links below to learn more about true healing on a deeper level - as opposed to superficial symptom removal.

    Why bother to learn about drug-free healing? Here are a couple of reasons:
    Perhaps you don't have health insurance, and are looking for an alternative reliable & low-cost tuberculosis recovery method?
    Perhaps standard methods (like drugs, surgery) have not been able to reverse your tuberculosis, that instead has become worse?
    Perhaps you have other diseases except tuberculosis that you want to heal at the same time?
    Perhaps you are afraid of damage from drugs or surgery? And want a mild, natural method?


    Is there always hope of recovery?
    Tha answer is yes - no matter what specialists and doctors have told you: "The recuperative power of the human body from illness to health can only be described as little short of amazing." "As long as there is still breath in the body and the will to live, there is always hope... there will always be hope"
    The quotes are from this free booklet: REMARKABLE RECOVERIES FROM SEVERE HEALTH PROBLEMS - download and read it for examples and inspiration.
    The phrase "it is hopeless" might be translated: "it is hopeless if you depend on drugs"

    How is tuberculosis cured?
    After reading this article you may start thinking differently about diseases - a paradigm shift for most ...
    Read How Diseases are Cured by Herbert M. Shelton
    "What does the average individual know about keeping well? Almost nothing. ----- The people and their doctors are all in the same boat together with a blind man at the helm."

    Also read Dr. Shelton's analysis of tuberculosis (consumption) here (in a list of diseases with analysis and treatments):
    "Tuberculosis may develop in many parts of the body...."

    QUOTE :
    At a later period, in California, raw vegetable juices were again used in the treatment of tuberculosis. In this instance, Dr. H. E. Kirshner was placed in charge of 200 tuberculosis patients for the county of Los Angeles at the Olive View Sanatorium. Some of the patients had spent as long as nine years on their backs with very little progress towards recovery. .... Dr. Kirshner added a glass of "green drink' consisting of the raw juices of alfalfa, spinach, and parsley, to the diet of each of these patients every day. .... Some of the patients who had been considered hopeless were able to get out of bed in six to eight months. In Dr. Kirshner's private practice, raw carrot juice, addition to the green juice mixture, was included in the diet of tubercular patients, which brought about more rapid recovery than did the green juice alone."

    What should I do first?
    It is very simple - try to understand how bodies recover from disease, including tuberculosis, and develop trust in the healing powers of your body.
    Read, read, read - and be open to new ideas. TIP: start with the booklet version of Dr. Bass website (www.drbass.com) free download here, that has 88 pages of valuable advice and extracts from his books, and from where this quote comes:
    "A volunteer for a hospice gave me a small booklet written by a woman who cured herself of cancer by drinking raw carrot juice. I thought that was pretty bizarre and unrealistic. But read the book anyway. I tried the carrot juice. Within 10 days my dyslexia vanished. ..... (Primitive Diet Example)"

    Can fasting be used for tuberculosis recovery?
    If none of your body functions is too deteriorated (e.g. your insulin mechanism), and if you are not in a deficient stage (e.g. from veganism), this is usually the most efficient method - but there are precautions, and professional supervision is recommended.
    Usually it is best to start the recovery process with change in lifestyle and nutrition, and first at a later stage try some shorter fasts (1 to 3 days), until you eventually may be ready for a longer fast. Only if you are perfectly healthy may it be ok to fast without supervision.
    Read: My First Water Fast - "In the course of my life afterwards, I have always been my own doctor and in the 3 times I had influenza during my lifetime, I always went on a fast, and the flu NEVER failed to disappear after 3 days. This radical experiment changed my life forever."

    QUOTE :
    "When tuberculosis was still a common disease in this country, frail and consumptive people would be seen going to slaughterhouses to obtain draughts of fresh blood, which were believed to be of great value in such cases. In countries where tuberculosis remains prevalent, this practice is still followed, with reportedly good results. On a clinical basis the celebrated French physiologist, Prof. Charles Richet, was among the first to use raw beef juice in the treatment of tuberculosis, and he reported excellent results in this practice. More recently other European physicians are following this same method, and they apply the term, "zomotherapy" to designate treatment of disease with raw meat or raw meat-juice. "

    What is the greatest pitfall after recovery from tuberculosis has started?
    ANSWER: The detoxification symptoms, which look like disease symptoms, and might cause you to panic and stop the detox process. If you ever need professional support, this is when. The first time we experience serious detoxification (a natural and healthy process), handholding is invaluable.
    Read: What Symptoms to Expect when Improving Your Diet - "People who have had tendencies in the past to recurring skin rashes or eruptions will frequently tend to eliminate poisons through the skin with new rashes or eruptions."
    "With some, colds which haven't appeared for a long time may occur, or even fevers. This is nature's way of housecleaning. Understand that these actions are constructive, even though unpleasant at the moment. Don't, but don't, try to stop these symptoms ..."

    What can I do on my own?
    Without competent professional advice - here is what you can do on your own to get a big step closer to your goal:
  • you can change your diet towards more raw, natural, organic, and especially non-toxic food and drink
  • you can eat minimally, and use food combining & sequential eating techniques
  • you need to sleep more, and stop wasting energy
    This website is full of advice on these topics. For real-life case stories read the free booklet: REMARKABLE RECOVERIES FROM SEVERE HEALTH PROBLEMS: "Usually, within a few weeks, people feel much better and in 4 months time, the body becomes stabilized and feels consistently well. And within a period of less than one year, almost all health problems will have disappeared - even large tumors and growths."

    Diet: should I avoid sugar and starches?
    The less new toxins you add to your body - the easier the daily detoxification will be (= your body's automatic cleaning process that goes on all the time).
    How toxic are carbohydrates (sugar & starches)? To find out - read these articles:
    Drs. Eades: High-Carbohydrate Problems - about insulin, and about primitive diets.
    Why Eat Less Carbohydrates? - with insulin article by Dr. Rosedale.
    "What is the minimum daily requirement for carbohydrates? ZERO." "Insulin is by far your biggest poison"

    QUOTE :
    Tuberculosis has a developing stage of several years, beginning with enervation, toxemia, catarrh of the stomach, infection of the glands of the lungs, and finally, tuberculosis. It is the endpoint of an evolutionary process begun with toxemic crises. ... That calcium deficiency is present in all cases is shown by the fact that all tubercular subjects are dental cripples. A large part of them had rickets in childhood. All of them have lived on denatured diets.
    Tuberculosis develops out of an enervated, toxemic and putrescence-infected body soil. Wrong food, overcrowding, foul air, lack of sunshine, and all enervating influences are basic causes of the trouble. Koch's bacillus is a mere incident in its development and course.
    Vaccinations and inoculations are frequently followed immediately by tuberculosis. A shock follows the use of every immunizing agent unless it is inert. In all subjects who are very close to toxin saturation a vaccination or a serum inoculation may, and often does, precipitate a case of tuberculosis.
    Herbert M. Shelton, Orthopathy, The Hygienic System VII, 1941
    Continued here: ORTHOPATHY

    What diets are best for recovery from tuberculosis?
    Usually a diet that is mainly raw, as well as non-toxic and low in carbohydrates. In certain difficult disease cases diet must alternate with fasting for proper healing to get started.
    Diet example 1: Dr. Cursio's Natural Hygiene (vegetarian) diet and food plan
    Diet example 2: Sample Raw Diet daily menu. Or find diets in the free booklet: REMARKABLE RECOVERIES FROM SEVERE HEALTH PROBLEMS.
    Diet example 3: Make the above 2 example diets more low-carb (no grains, potatoes, corn, rice) - or find low-carb diets in books by Drs. Eades, Atkins, etc. and make these more raw.

    More pitfalls
    If you do self-healing on your own, here are some more pitfalls to avoid:
    1. You have to remember to respect your body's ability, and that healing may take longer than you want, and you may feel confused if it works or not and want to give up.
    2. Your body may be severely drug-damaged, or for some other reason cannot recover 100%, and you must always respect your body's signs, but at the same time be patient since sometimes our bodies perform miracles.
    3. You may misunderstand some of the "healing symptoms" for "disease symptoms" -- or the opposite: you may mistake a serious warning sign for a healing symptom. - This is an area where you may need some handholding by a no-drugs specialist.
    4. You may try to mix no-drugs methods with (alternative/medical) drug methods -- but you can NOT detoxify if you add toxins (drugs, supplements, herbs, lotions, potions) at the same time! Also remember that sugar is a potent toxin that should be avoided. (Colonics should be avoided for the same reason - since toxins may enter the body via a colon under over-pressure.)

    What is the cause of tuberculosis?
    Read:  How Important is Diagnosis?, explaining the 3 factors of disease - namely enervation, toxemia, deficiency.
    Except for mechanical damage and accidents these are the only disease causes.
    Of these toxemia is the most common cause - and the cure is called detoxification.
    Here are the good news: every person has a built-in system for automatic detoxification:
    "Even if a person has a baffling, rare disease and the diagnosis is unknown, if he or she eats properly or fasts if necessary, the body will surely heal itself, as long as sufficient vitality is present."

    How can lack of energy (or enervation) be a cause of tuberculosis?
    Read the same article: How Important is Diagnosis? - about lack of energy as disease cause - about the enervation-toxemia cycle:
    "Enervation leads to a reduction of the body's ability to digest, absorb, assimilate and excrete body wastes - thus leading to a retention of wastes in the cells and tissues and thereby causing disease."
    So it is a destructive circle: enervation increases the toxemia (poisoning) - and toxemia in turn does increase the enervation (lack of energy).

    How long time does it take to get well from tuberculosis?
    Read:  The Time-Factor in Recovery by Dr. Herbert Shelton- "Quick relief, even if only temporary, is what is so generally demanded. This produces an aftermath of troubles that are often worse than the troubles they are given to relieve."

    What is the major factor behind recovery from tuberculosis?
    ENERGY!! You will recover from tuberculosis if (and only if) your body has enough energy and vitality to detoxify.

    Since tuberculosis recovery and detoxification takes time - don't I need a lot of willpower?
    Try to get inspired in the beginning - and then stick to the new lifestyle long enough to see results, and get inspired again.
