There are many different harmful and useless substances which the body tries to eliminate in a natural way. Sometimes this is not easy, especially if these substances are very sticky or very hard. Starches are sticky and slimy and are usually found in carbohydrates such as cereals, bread and pasta, as well as in milk and dairy products, or badly processed lipids (frying fats). Normally these starches are eliminated via the liver, the intestines or the sebaceous glands of the skin.
However, when there are too many starches the excretory organs are overburdened, and other ways will be found to dispose of them. For example, the respiratory tract or the mucus lining of the uterus are suitable for such disposals and the starches will then leave the organism in the form of mucus or as a white discharge. When the organism becomes saturated with too many starches you may get a running nose, a cold and a sore throat. Diseases such as asthma, bronchitis, wet eczema, acne, inflammation of the uterus (endometriosis) and the digestive organs can develop. In this case the mucus is mostly thick and viscous.
A change of diet or even fasting, or a so-called ‘dry diet’, can always be recommended. Often the mistake is made to advise such patients ‘to drink as much as possible’. However, this kind of advice is completely wrong, as much liquid is only needed in the case of feverish diseases; liquids thin the blood and the fever goes down. But in the case of the health problems or diseases, the accumulation of mucus is the greatest problem and starches are not soluble in water.
All diseases whereby starches and mucus play an important part point to a weakness of the lymphatic system and the lymphatic nodes may become inflamed. If there are too many starches in the food, the defensive forces can hardly cope with all the work. In order to prevent or cure such a disease, it is very important to stop eating starches and to put an end to the build-up of the mucus-producing waste products.
The quantity of blood should always be more or less the same. When a patient suffers from diseases, it would be wise to keep the intake of liquids to a minimum. Then the organism will compensate for this deficiency by using the liquid contained in the lymphatic nodules. In order to achieve this, the lymphatic nodules will be squeezed out and emptied and after a short time the liquid in these nodules will be replaced by newly made lymphatic fluids. This kind of therapy means a real house-cleaning, as in this way superfluous mucus can be eliminated, the lymphatic nodes will be cleaned and the disease can be cured. This is a ‘dry diet’, which is a diet whereby for a few days the patient takes only a minimum of fluids. Such a treatment is usually quite successful.
