Natural Health Remedies, organized by the complaint. Please note that if you choose to help your body heal by using any of these remedies, it is important that you still have to seek help with a qualified health advisor, such as a doctor, as well, because everyone's body is unique.

Lactose intolerance is the inability to digest 'lactose', which is a sugar present in milk. Lactose intolerant people can consume lactose-free dairy products. Aging dairy reduces lactose so some people can consume aged cheeses without problems.
Lactose intolerance causes various symptoms some time after a person consumes lactose (dairy). In the long term, it can also cause anemia, and therefore tiredness, among other things. It can also be linked to irritable bowel syndrome and other food intolerances, such as histamine intolerance and/or fructose intolerance.
A breath test has been developed which can determine whether you are lactose intolerant or not. Please read under Irritable Bowel Syndrome to find out more about this test.
This website provides some indication whether you have lactose intolerance or not, through their questionnaire: Intolerance Test by Eat-All.com.
This company sells lactose-digesting enzymes which can be taken before eating lactose-containing foods to eliminate or reduce the symptoms of lactose intolerance: LactoSolv by ScioTech, Austria.
Also called intestinal permeability, this is a problem that started off as 'intestinal dysbiosis' and it can lead to autoimmune conditions if it goes untreated. The theory goes that in leaky gut syndrome the intestinal lining has become permeable and is able to let undigested food particles, bacterial toxins and germs into the bloodstream, which triggers the immune system and causes persistent inflammation in the body.
Please read the entry on intestinal dysbiosis in this article as well as the entry on inflammation.

"Leukemia is one of the easiest cancers to cure. Once you flood the blood stream with THC and other cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids, the cancer won't be there very long. Stay away from chemo and pills and the damage they will cause. That is the biggest problem for the oil."

According to Chinese Medicine, Exercise is very important for strengthening the liver. Weak liver can cause anger and frustration, but anger and frustration can also weaken the liver.
Avoid alcohol and other substances which weaken the liver, such as coffee.
Plenty of fresh lemon juice mixed with water daily helps to cleanse and strengthen the liver. Also drink plenty of water generally, not just one day but longer-term, regularly, as this is crucial for the liver to be able to do its job and cleanse itself.
Note that sugar and anything else that is dehydrating weakens the liver, and longer-term may cause you to become angry and frustrated.
Research: Liver parasites, parasite cleanse, liver stone cleanse, liver-strengthening herbs, good hydration, avoidance of liver toxins.
General detoxification protocols, such as enemas, and especially coffee enemas, if done correctly, will most likely be beneficial.
Please get checked by your doctor to rule out any conditions that need emergency medical intervention. Also, to get a diagnosis to see if you need to address specific infections, etc., while strengthening the liver generally.
