Sore Throat

The onset of diseases of the respiratory tract often starts with a sore throat. A sore throat is a sign that the guard of the immune system in the throat, the tonsils, are reacting to a potentially infectious agent. The soreness warns us that we are going to be in trouble if nothing is done. The cause of the diminished metabolism is often stress and a bad diet. In this author’s opinion, in other cases it is a bad life style or the abuse of the body by the use of alcohol, medical drugs or recreational drugs. In other cases it is simply the expression of a situation of weakness in a person suffering from some kind of illness over a long period of time, such as digestive problems or anemia.

The soreness may only be a warning of a temporary weakness, such as what is caused by occasional excessive fatigue or occasional indigestion, or it may be the precursor of some serious infection that is developing in the body. The pulse (rapid heartbeat) and the temperature (fever) will indicate whether infection is present.

For sore throat, including the cases with possible infection, Newton’s Throat Care is recommended.  The complex should be taken every hour until the pain subsides. In the case of high fever, the Fever~Infection complex is recommended every hour or every 30 minutes, if the temperature is rising.


The Common Cold

A cold is an acute viral disease that is accompanied by fever, runny nose, headache and feelings of weakness and stress. It lasts for a few days and ends without complications.

The Cold-Sinus complex is recommended.  The complex should be taken several times a day, and in the beginning as often as every hour. The remedy will take care of the fever as well if the disease is truly an acute attack of cold.

In the worst case scenario, the cough persists after the fever is gone. In that case the Cough-Asthma complex is recommended; it should be taken about every hour, depending on the severity of the cough attacks.



Another sequel of the common cold occurs when it becomes a sniffle that does not go away. It also may end as a dry, stuffy nose that makes it difficult or impossible to breathe normally. This makes sleeping difficult because breathing through the mouth causes a dry throat and awakens the patient regularly during the night. It is also the cause of snoring during sleep in many people. The Cold-Sinus will bring relief in these cases as well. Continue to take it every morning and repeat during the day as necessary. Also take the Detoxifier every evening.

Be careful to eat a healthy diet of organically grown food, low in protein.


Asthma and Bronchitis

If the cold is not an acute attack but the result of some more serious problems, such as intoxication of the liver, the symptoms evolve into a bad cough and pain in the chest. These are the signs of bronchitis, which is an acute infection of the bronchi. If neglected, this situation  can be a trigger for asthma attacks, which are characterized by breathing difficulties that may become severe.

The Cough-Asthma complex several times during the day is recommended, depending on the severity of the symptoms. In order to help alleviate the intoxication of the liver, take the Detoxifier, every evening before retiring.
