Herb Formulas from the book "Herbs for Health
by Otto Mausert, N.D.


     All formulas in this book have been thoroughly tested in regard to their
effectiveness and reliability.  They cover all points of information in the
treatment of the different diseases and are based on the practical experience of
a lifetime.  There is, therefore, no necessity of giving numerous formulas for
each ailment, making their selection difficult and leaving the results that are
expected to guess work.
     The formulas in this book are all written in weight and liquid measure, as 
this is the only way to get uniform and correctly dosed preparations.  The 
expected
results depend to a great extent on this exactness.
     The measurements you find in so many formulas, such as tablespoonful, 
cupful, handful, etc., are very inaccurate, because tablespoons, cups and hands
are not all the same size.  But a weight, such as an ounce, is always the same,
no matter what is weighedlead or feathers.  A tablespoonful of a herb, if cut
fine or powdered, will hold twice as much, or more, than a tablespoon of a
coarser cut.  Therefore a preparation made by measure is inaccurate.  It will be
different every time it is made and the results will naturally be uncertain.


The following is a table of weights and measures


DRACHM equals 60 grains for weight and 60 minims (drops) for liquid measure.
OUNCE equals 8 drachms for weight or liquid measure.
POUND equals 16 ounces for weight.
PINT equals 16 ounces liquid measure.
QUART equals 2 pints liquid measure.
GALLON equals 4 quarts liquid measure.

     For the local treatment of piles it is advisable to use suppositories or 
pile cones.  They are preferable to salves, because they can be easily inserted 
in the rectum and their quantity is constant.  Salves on the other hand are hard
 to administer and the quantity inserted is not definite. Formula No. 246 has 
been found to give good results and quick relief.  It is a mild astringent, acts
 as a soothing and healing agent, thus tending to relieve the pain, itching and
inflammation.  For best results it should be used persistently as its action
tends to gradually shrink the piles.

the three Formulas Nos. 240, 243 and 246 should be used together.  Formula No.

pressure from the piles.  The wash acts as an effective astringent, it is

     The deposits of Uric Acid formed in Rheumatic diseases, settle easiest and

use an embrocation in conjunction with the internal treatment in order to
improve the circulation and draw the blood to the parts that are painful and
stiff.
     Liniment, Formula No. 264, will be of great help to promote better 
circulation.  It helps to relieve pain, stiffness, lameness, weakness and

circulation
has been caused by a blow, stretching, twisting, sprains or bruises and where
stiffness in neck, limbs and muscles is due to cold.
     It must not be overlooked that opening the pores of skin by sweating is 
very important in Rheumatism.  Formula No. 57 or No. 58 should therefore also

For Tapeworm
1. Bear's Paw Root Extract           6 drachms
     Considered a specific for the removal of tapeworm.
2. Mandrake Root Extract             1 1/2 drachms

     Mix well and fill into 6 gelatine capsules equally divided.
     Directions: Take one capsule every ten minutes until all are taken. 
Examine the stools closely and do not forget that the thinnest part bears the 
head.  Doctors generally let the patient fast for a day or two before taking 
tapeworm remedies, but this is unnecessary, because the worm being a parasite, 
cannot be starved.  This only makes the patient feel weak and nauseated, and 
when he finally takes the medicine on a starved stomach, he may throw it up.  A 
far better way from my experience, is to advise the patient to eat, for a day 
or so, foods the tapeworm dislikes, such as onions, garlic, pickles and salted 
fish.  This weakens the worm and tends to loosen his grip, so that when the 
medicine is taken, it acts upon the tapeworm and causes it to be expelled more 
easily.
