    The famous Russian healer PM Kurennoy offers the following remedies for ulcers:

    It is necessary to take a relatively small but rather high pot and take a jar with a wide throat measuring one quart( liter).Put on the bottom of the pan a piece of asbestos of any thickness. Put the jar in the pan( on the asbestos sheet).The folk healers of Russia and Siberia are replacing the asbestos sheet with round bundles of straw tied together. Fill the can almost up to the top with dried or fresh grass St. John's Wort. Add the jar with olive oil so that the oil just covers the top layer of the grass. Take another saucepan. Fill both pans with water and. .. boil. It is necessary to keep the main pot with the medicine in the boiling state of water in a pan( and not in a jar with butter and St. John's wort).Once again, I repeat that the water in both saucepans should boil all the time. When three or four tablespoons of water are boiled in the main saucepan, then as much as boiled out of the spare pan. After six hours, the medicine is ready. It must be filtered and kept in a dark cool place. Dose: one tablespoon of medication half an hour before a meal( two spoons are better than one spoon, of course, a dining room).

    Very strict diet. It is best to starve at the beginning of treatment, on one water two or three days. However, the medicine should be taken three to four times a day. On the fourth day - and so for a week - one-third of the egg boiled soft-boiled;three times a day for one third of the eggs. Then, for the next two weeks, increase to half the boiled egg for each meal and add a little bit of the oatmeal. Then you can add chicken broth to this diet. In five weeks you can have very little white meat( chicken, turkey, etc.);so continue until the expiration of three months. It would be useful to take an X-ray. A normal diet with black meat, etc., with this diet can be resolved only after ten months from the date of treatment. Alcoholic beverages, even very weak( beer, etc.) are categorically prohibited throughout the course of treatment and before the expiration of 18 months, and best of all even longer.

    The diet described here is very hungry, cruel and limited, but after all, the disease is terribly cruel. .. This disease many people suffer for many years. Many thousands of people have got rid of stomach ulcers by this "zealous" remedy of Russian village healers. If the diet is met and the drug is correctly produced, experience shows that the complete disappearance of the ulcer is the result. ..

    In the "hunter's" method of treatment, the author foresees many failures due to non-compliance with the diet.

    An attempt to get rid of a stomach ulcer in an operative way often leads to sad and tragic results. And the sick stomach ulcer and all who are interested in the disease of stomach ulcers must remember that the scientists of the whole world in the past years adhered to the term: "You are what you eat". .. Now scientists say and write: "You are what you arethink "... Therefore excessive care, anxiety, irritated state, decline of spirit, constant quarrels with close relatives, fear( something) and other similar anomalies can cause and cause a stomach ulcer.

    Treatment of ulcers with famine

    On them hunger affects primarily: they get rest. They were overloaded with work, and during the famine they rest and restore their strength. Abnormal discharges are removed from them, and when the hunger strike is over, their digestive capacity is strong

    is increased. Ulcers and inflammations heal, and the expansion of the stomach disappears, as it takes its normal volume and takes its normal place. Painful sensations and abnormal appetite disappear. Hunger is the fastest and right way to cleanse bacteria from decomposition in the esophagus. In a week's time, the small intestines are cleared of bacterial soup and become sterile. A little more time is required for the same cleaning of the colon, although in it the decomposition process is greatly reduced.

    I often heard protests from patients who feared that their stomach might atrophy and "come to naught" as a result of the hunger strike. Even the more educated of them believed that hunger greatly weakened the stomach, and asked how to avoid "this danger".

    Why it is common to think that you need to stuff your stomach with food to the point of failure, that it should work all the time, day and night, so as not to "weaken", leaving it empty for a minute - it's hard for me to understand. The stomach is a muscular sac, and, like all the muscles of the body, it also needs rest. The basic law of nature requires rest for each organ. The only way to rest your stomach is not to take more food. Immediately he begins to repair the cells and repair the damage, and then recovers from the emergency work, which was earlier on him piled up. This brings us to another important consideration. Gastric juice during hunger is not allocated. Under normal conditions, gastric juice and especially hydrochloric acid are released in proportion not to the amount of incoming food, but in accordance with the requirements of the body for substances from a given chemical composition. For example, when taking proteins, eggs, meat, etc., the stomach needs more hydrochloric acid than it would be necessary for mastering starches, like bread, pasta, etc. During starvation, these discharges completely cease, and there is no danger that the wallsstomach will be eaten by this acid or that as a result of overproduction of this acid ulcers may form.

    In my practice, there were many cases when stomach ulcers were cured by hunger. As soon as the last piece of food is digested, the stomach is released, and the repair process begins, for the obsolete cells are replaced by new healthy ones, which is the body's recovery system: self-renewal. This replacement of old and diseased cells with new healthy ones occurs when the first are dissolved and actually discarded from the organs, and then washed away in the flow of blood circulation.

    Do not mix the diet of fruit juices with starvation. I mean a diet of orange, grape or other fruit juice or a homogeneous liquid. Diet is not a starvation. Diets are useful in controlling many diseases, but in cases of gastric diseases, we must be extremely careful not to induce hydrochloric acid from the walls of the stomach with such a fruit diet. From a practical point of view, the fruit diet has nothing to do with our topic, for the diet is a starvation. Fasting is voluntary abstinence from all food except water, but many do not fully understand the process of hunger treatment and often call "hunger" one of the mono-diets of fruit juices that last only a few days.

    In gastric diseases, we should not in any case replace fresh water with fruit juices. The reason for this ban is simple. When fruit juices enter the stomach, they cause abundant and constant acid release from the walls of the stomach and since in the stomach with such a diet there is not enough solids, especially proteins that need to be dissolved, the acid can act directly on the mucosa and a fewdays may cause an ulcer. During hunger, the stomach quickly ceases to release hydrochloric acid at all, and as a result, after two or four days, any irritation disappears, and the stomach gets the opportunity to begin rejuvenation.

    Many people think that during hunger all the insides are compressed and most of all the stomach. This is again erroneous. The truth is that, fortunately, the stomach enlarged by the excessive amount of food taken is actually somewhat reduced - to its normal size. Therefore, after hunger, the stomach stubbornly refuses to accept that unnecessary more food to which he was accustomed to hunger. A few years ago, Dr. Rossel X. Chittenden described how Dr. Onderhill tried to return to his former way of life after hunger, but could no longer take the same large portions of food as before the hunger strike. It has happened more than once that a patient who starved for ten or fifteen days, under the influence of friends, neglected the advice of a doctor and agreed to eat. Such patients could not eat their normal dinner, because their stomach was weaned from excess in food, often by a number of practiced.

    It is clear why, as a result of the hunger strike, the stomach contracted to normal size and why the body did not require more food than it should. Immediately the processes of digestion and assimilation of food improve and the need for food falls often to half the previous. The most important explanation for this reduction is that the stomach was abnormally enlarged earlier. Thus, hunger returns the stomach to its original elasticity and normal size.

    The liver and kidneys are also cleared during starvation, despite the fact that at first they are entrusted with double work. The enlarged spleen also returns to normal size. The abscesses and abscesses of the liver were repeatedly cured by hunger. This is easy to understand, because these organs, on which lies the main work on cleaning the body, are completely freed from it during the famine. Lungs also get better in the most radical way, because they are working on cleaning blood. Any accumulation of "garbage" in the lungs disappears at the very beginning of the famine, and the air gets free access to the blood vessels. With bronchitis, inflammation of the pulmonary lobes, colds and influenza, even a short-lived famine gives brilliant results.

    Birch buds are a great remedy for many diseases.

    . In , the beginning of the clinic described the use of a means of birch buds to treat rheumatism. There is also a description of the use of birch buds in other diseases.

    Herbalist A. P. Popova writes about birch buds: "Birch preparations are used for skin diseases, acute rheumatism, liver inflammation and maternity fever, with peptic ulcer of the stomach and duodenum. Usually in such cases take 50 grams of birch buds, insist them for 10 days on 500 grams of vodka and give a liqueur from half to one teaspoon of water three times a day for 15-20 minutes before eating.

    This drug causes the patient a good appetite, promotes healing of stomach and duodenal ulcers. When toothache apply a cotton wool with tincture on a sick tooth. With all these diseases( except for toothache), these drugs are consumed inside and outside.

    Birch buds tincture or decoction, as well as decoction of leaves are taken as anthelmintic for pinworms and ascaridosis. People use this tincture externally and with bedsores.

    Lotions from decoctions of birch leaves and kidneys or tincture from the kidneys heal fresh wounds, even deep ones.

    Decoction of the kidneys: one teaspoon of kidney for half a cup of boiling water, use two tablespoons three times a day. Tincture of the kidneys to alcohol - 25 grams per 100 grams of alcohol, insist for 8 days;take 20 drops three times a day.

    Tincture of the kidneys on vodka: take a bottle of vodka on a bottle of vodka, insist for a month;use 40 drops 6-4 times a day( with cholera - one glass every hour until vomiting stops). "

    Now let's turn to the herbalist IM Nosal's and learn his recipes and instructions."Alcoholic tincture is prepared from birch buds. Take 30 grams and more kidneys per liter of approximately 70-degree alcohol. This tincture is taken three times a day for 15-20 drops on a spoonful of water in case of gastric ulcer, with indigestion of the stomach, with disorders and various pains in the stomach, as well as in dropsy caused by inflammation of the kidneys, with all kinds of renal suffering, against smallround worms, with diseases of the skin, bladder;external: for the treatment of wounds( lavage, lotion), for rubbing( and also inside) with rheumatism.

    Instead of alcohol tincture, use also a decoction of birch buds: from 5 to 10 grams per glass of water and drink 3 glasses a day in the same cases as drops.

    If there are no kidneys, then with the same success apply a decoction or brew of young leaves: 10 grams per glass of water.
