Nature’s Solution

A Vogel’s Linoforce granules will clear the colon of accumulated waste products in a gentle way. No side effects, spasms or gripes will be experienced with this gentle laxative.

A Vogel’s Gastronol tabs are a homoeopathic combination remedy which will assist the body to correct poor functioning in the digestive tract. Gastronol is particularly suited to the formation of gas in the bowel, as well as a sluggish digestion, creating wind and heartburn.

A Vogel’s Boldocynara liver drops are well indicated for constipated systems where the liver is not functional at optimum levels. Intolerance to fat and oil, coffee, tea and alcohol, coated tongue, offensive breath and stool, all indicate the need for this remedy.

Bioforce Bioflora capsules contain Lacto Bacillus Acidophilus, a friendly bowel bacteria that is destroyed by antibiotics. It is necessary to replenish the bacteria once a course of antibiotics have been completed. Bowel flora which is absent can reflect in either diarrhoea or constipation and flatulence. Rabenhorst Pflaumi syrup is excellent to restore regular bowel movements. This mild laxative syrup contains extracts of dates, prunes, figs, as well as fibre from oats. Taken regularly at night, it will ensure a good bowel movement the next morning.

Some advice from Dr Vogel

Soaked prunes, taken first thing in the morning and last thing at night, will often remedy the problem of constipation. Young stinging nettles boiled in milk have also been found helpful. After removing the nettles, drink this milk every morning on rising. This simple remedy is equally effective in cases of migraine headaches accompanied by bilious vomiting.

The simplest remedy for constipation is to drink a glass of hot water first thing in the morning. But if this does not do the trick, eat a few slices of fig paste which you can make yourself in the following way. Take 100g of figs, 100g of raisins, 20g of senna pods (preferably powdered) and 20-50g of ground linseed. Mix all the ingredients together, grind into a paste and shape this into rolls. Cut off slices as you need them. There is also a special soup for sluggish bowels which you eat in the morning with a little crispbread or wholegrain bread. To make it, cook together freshly ground whole wheat, a small chopped onion and a crushed clove of garlic. When it is ready, add some chopped parsley and a spoonful of olive oil. This simple breakfast has cured many of their constipation. For more stubborn cases, however, ground linseed or psylliom seed should be added. Alternatively, if you are bothered with intestinal sluggishness, have been overdosed with laxatives, if even natural plant laxatives no longer give relief, or if you simply want to normalise your bowel movement, the following recipe will be helpful:

First make a herbal infusion. For sensitive people use cassia stick (Cassia fistula, also known as purging cassia) tea. For those less sensitive use senna leaf, senna pod or some other herbal tea to stimulate the bowel movement. Brew and strain the tea, then for each person add one small raw potato, diced with the skin. Mix in a teaspoon of bran and one of linseed. Simmer for fifteen minutes. Eat this herbal soup in the morning and also at night, if necessary. If it does not appeal to you, put it through a sieve and drink the liquid. You may eventually become used to eating it without it being strained. The effect of this soup on the bowels is astounding and it works when no other laxative does.

Sometimes just a change in diet will provide the answer. Avoid anything that may have a constipating effect if your bowels are already sluggish. Sudden constipation, followed by diarrhoea, could indicate a tumour in the colon and medical attention should therefore be sought. It may be that the constipation has psychological causes or is due to a weak nervous state, exhaustion or some mental anxiety. If so, it is essential to restore the psychological balance to ensure sufficient sleep and relaxation. Plenty of exercise should be taken, particularly if the sufferer has a sedentary occupation.

Some useful information:

1. Constipation could be caused by lack of dietary fibre. A daily diet consisting of refined white flour products such

2. as white bread, breakfast cereals, white rolls, pasta, pizza and white rice, will create a densely formed stool, leading to constipation.

3. Excessive quantities of meat, milk, fried foods, coffee, tea, alcohol, sugar and boiled vegetables will increase acidity in the bowel, often ending in constipation.

4. People who are bedridden or who have sedentary lives, suffer more from constipation. Exercise is useful to regulate bowel movements.

5. The abuse or long term use of laxatives will result in a lazy bowel and constipation.

6. Liver disorders such as Hepatitis, Cirrhosis of the liver, sluggish liver, often results in constipation.

7. Anxiety and worry can cause either constipation or diarrhoea. The nervous system can be the single most important factor in not being able to relax to pass a stool. Being “uptight” could be the main cause.

8. Problems relating to the spine, such as lesions. After accidents or operations can interfere with the nerve supply to the colon to ensure proper movement and evacuation.

9. Not going to the toilet to pass a stool when the urge is there. Not making time to sit quietly and pass a stool. This can cause build up and compaction of faecal matter, resulting in chronic constipation, often the case in small children.

10. Scar tissue resulting from abdominal operations such as appendectomies and Caesars can cause narrowing of the colon with resulting constipation.

11. Spastic Colon, a condition where excessive bloating and irregular bowel movements, together with much abdominal pain, results in constipation.

12. Food allergies: Sometimes certain foods could cause constipation, notably dairy and wheat.

13. Pregnancy. The position of the enlarging uterus, impinging on the pelvic space of the colon could cause constipation.

14. Lack of stomach acid which is often associated with a sluggish thyroid could be the cause of constipation.

15. Chronic anaemia: Anaemic patients have low body vitality, poor appetite, don’t want to exercise due to exhaustion, and this leads to constipation.

16. Cancer or growths in the bowel obstructing the passage of bowel contents resulting in partially expelled stools.

17. Complete absence of the urge or nerve impulse to pass a stool.

18. Dehydration: This obviously leads to a dry stool which is difficult to pass.

What to do:

1. Constipation is more than a troublesome condition. It is an insidious drain on the health of millions of people. As bowel transit time is increased, the stool becomes hardened and dry, which makes it difficult to pass. The body slowly reabsorbs the fluid content in the faeces and along with it many soluble toxins. This auto-detoxification is the reason people suffering from constipation have coated tongues, foul breath, lack of energy, and difficulty in thinking. These poisons affect every area of the body. (Aldus-Ross Trattler – Health through Natural Healing) Constipation should be taken seriously.

2. Avoid a diet which lacks in fibre. Eat plenty vegetables, fruit and whole grains. A diet lacking in fibre creates small stools which is difficult for the movement of the colon to expel. Very much like the last bit of toothpaste from a tube. This is invariably the cause of Diverticulosis, appendicitis and colon cancer.

3. A low fibre diet will also result in prolonged exposure to the colon of bile acids. This combination of bile acids and bowel flora is carcinogenic.

4. Do not use laxatives regularly. Rather eat a bowl of chopped spinach, steamed and flavoured with soya sauce to clear the colon. A grated apple to which a tablespoon of linseeds have been added, left to soak for one hour, is an excellent bowel cleanser. Regular use of laxatives will stop the colon from moving naturally, resulting in constipation.

5. Enemas will have a similar effect as laxatives if abused or used long-term. However, for a severely compacted and constipated colon, it might be necessary to have a general colon enema cleanse with professional supervision.

6. It is important to ensure by asking daily if your child has passed a stool. Regular bowel habits are inculcated from childhood. Lack of bowel discipline can result in lifelong constipation.

7. Bowel transit time can be established by eating beetroot. Take note when the red beetroot passes through. Ideally bowel transit time should be 12-24 hours. Even a stool passed this frequently, but with effort, indicates constipation on an overloaded bowel.

8. Get regular exercise to promote healthy muscle tone and good circulation in the pelvic area.

9. Regularly consult a chiropractor or masseuse if back muscles are weak or in spasm due to spinal lesions.

10. Most of the measures suggested to clear away constipation are important. However, diet and exercise make up the main cures for constipation.


Constipation is an insidious robber of good health. It slowly, but surely, poisons every part of the body. The necessity for a healthy natural diet must be emphasised again and again. Regular exercise of 20 minutes in walks will add to the cure. A Vogel’s Linoforce granules can be of great help to regulate the proper emptying of the bowel.

A Vogel’s Gastronol Tabs will ensure proper digestive processes, reducing the build-up of gas.

Bioflora will provide healthy bowel bacteria to establish proper digestion in the lower bowel, reducing gas, flatulence, diarrhoea and constipation. A Vogel’s Boldocynara is necessary to ensure proper delivery of bile to ensure good digestion. Constipation can never be put on the back burner. It needs to be addressed every day to ensure future good health.

Obesity / Weight loss

Do you suffer from?

• Excessive fat in relation to body weight
• Difficulty in losing weight
• Easy or quick weight gain
• Obesity in your family
• Hormonal disturbances from the following glands
- Hypothalamus – body heat distorted
- Pituitary – Infertility, erratic periods
- Pineal – Sleep disorders
- Thyroid – Enlarged, under-active
- Adrenal – Stress
- Pancreas – Hypo/Hyperglycaemia
• Do you take the “pill” for contraception?
• Is food a comforter?

Nature’s Solution:

A Vogel’s Helix Slim drops is a herbal extract which acts favourably on the digestive system assisting the body to have proper bowel movements as well as to eliminate excess fluids from the body tissues. Helix Slim is a valuable slimming aid as it also helps to regulate blood sugar levels thereby avoiding sugar cravings which create havoc.

A Vogel’s Anti-Appetite Formula drops is a homoeopathic combination remedy which will assist with a ravenous appetite by enhancing assimilation of nutrients into the bloodstream and by regulating blood sugar levels. Anti-Appetite Formula is also calmative to the user while dietary changes are put into place.

A Vogel’s Cellulite Formula drops is a homeopathic combination remedy which is very effective to mobilise the drainage of the lymphatic system. Toxicity of the lymphatic system often leads to the formation of unsightly cellulite. People who do not have tonsils or appendix usually suffer from poor lymphatic drainage, as well as blue eyed people. Cellulitis Formula is particularly suited to this group.

A Vogel’s Kelpasan tablets are a good source of micro-nutrients essential to help the endocrine system to function normally. The sex glands in males and females are vitally important to maintain activity in an energetic life as well as to help regulate male and female hormones which play an important part in maintaining a healthy weight.

A Vogel’s Urticalcin tabs provides essential calcium to the body in an organic form which is easily assimilated. Calcium levels in the body needs to be at optimum levels for healthy glandular activity. Calcium also plays its part in neutralising excess acidity in the obese person when sugar is eaten often. Urticalcin provides excellent mineral backup for a person on a restricted diet.

A Vogel’s Molkosan liquid whey concentrate will speedily restore order to an over-burdened digestive tract. The Swiss whey cure is well known for its overall benefits to the body by cleansing the digestive tract and providing concentrated nutrients to ensure that the pancreas will function optimally. Apart from all of this, one teaspoon of Molkosan in a glass of water, 30 minutes before a meal, will help to regulate the appetite while it will also ensure proper digestion of the meal which will follow.

Weight Control (Underweight and Overweight)

In the past it was thought that being underweight was caused by an insufficient intake of food and that eating too much resulted in obesity. However, there are some people who eat a lot and remain extraordinarily thin, and others who eat very little and still put on weight. Everything, they say, turns to fat!

Meanwhile, research has shown that dysfunction of the endocrine glands, the glands with internal secretions, is largely responsible for both excessive corpulence and thinness. These glands are, primarily, the pituitary, the ovaries, the testicles and the thyroid. Their over-activity or imbalance usually leads to thinness, while their insufficiency (or under-activity) leads to corpulence. It has been observed that removal of the ovaries, or a disease causing ovarian insufficiency, causes a person to put on weight. Obesity following menopause confirms the truth of this statement. Typical examples are the inhabitants of southern climates. How slim and supple the Italian or the Latin and South American girls are in the early prime of life. But as soon as the glandular secretions diminish, which is usually at a much earlier age in hot countries, they become plump. If the older generation is stout, solid and comfortable, the reason for this can be traced to the insufficient functioning of the endocrine glands and, more than anything else, the sluggishness of the ovaries. In such cases sits baths and other therapies which stimulate the ovaries (see below) would be of immense help towards reducing corpulence.

Pituitary obesity, however, is not so easy to deal with, because the pituitary is less amenable to corrective treatment than the ovaries. There are, of course, glandular preparations on the market which do act on the pituitary, but their administration is still a delicate matter. Nor do these preparations always produce positive results with the pituitary, though they often do with the ovaries.

A more effective way to reduce obesity is to take the seaweed ocean kelp. Two Kelpasan tablets taken twice a day are usually enough to reduce excess weight slowly but surely. Additionally, take Helix Slim, a fresh plant extract, over a long period of time. Where the ovaries need stimulating, Menstruation Formula, in combination with a good diet, has given good results.

Another simple method, particularly for stimulating the ovaries, is to take various foods that contain vitamin E. The most important of these is wheat germ. There are some people who will not eat wheat germ for feat of getting fat, because it has also been recommended to thin people who wish to gain weight. Women need not worry about this, since wheat germ and its vitamin E content only regulate the function of the ovaries. In fact, wheat germ stimulates their function in the case of fat people and reduces their over-activity in the case of thin people; in this way it actually helps the obese to lose weight and the thin to put it on. In addition, wheat-germ contains other valuable nutrients, such as vegetable protein, phosphates and natural sugar, all of which have a good effect on the body without the danger of causing an abnormal weight increase. So if you suffer from obesity, do not hesitate to eat wheat germ, for it will not increase your weight but regulate or control it.

Then there are those people who do not eat any food rich in vitamins because they are afraid they might overdose themselves. This fear is only justified where synthetic vitamins are concerned, for, indeed, they can produce an overdose. However, such a thing cannot happen with natural vitamins contained in biological remedies and organically grown food. Being an integral part of organic compounds they are never present in harmful concentrations. The body absorbs from the food only what it needs, while any surplus of certain natural vitamins is stored up or disposed of. For these reasons synthetic vitamins can never equal the natural ones. We may be able to analyse things, but when it comes to synthesising a biological equivalent we often fail. We simply do not know all the secrets hidden in these plants. How much more desirable it is, therefore, to turn to natural, biological sources, because the things the Creator has made for us can never be surpassed or equalled with synthetic products.

Guidelines for slimming without Danger

Obese people must never let themselves be persuaded to take a commercial slimming preparation. Except for seaweed, never take an ordinary preparation that contains iodine, since iodine is a dangerous element and should be used only in homoeopathic potencies and with the greatest caution. So if you do not know the contents of a slimming product, be sure to find out and reject it if it contains iodine. Remember, the safest way to lose weight is by means of a suitable diet and a well-planned programme of physical therapy. They are dangerous not only to the health but to life itself. Some people who have taken these preparations have met a tragic end. If you feel you must lose weight, take nothing but natural remedies.

When deciding how to approach a problem of obesity it is first necessary to identify its cause. It is no doubt true that excess weight is often caused by an improper diet, or by eating to much. The unfortunate consequences in that case have their origin in too good an appetite. However, as discussed in the preceding section, there are some people who gain weight despite the fact that they eat very little. These people cannot reduce their weight simply by cutting down on the amount of food they consume. Advice on safe approaches to both types of problem is given below.

Disorders of the endocrine glands

Those who put on weight although they eat very little suffer from impaired functioning of the endocrine glands. In my medical practice I have observed cases where the gonads as well as the pituitary gland and even the thyroid were responsible for obesity. If such functional disorders have been existing since youth, the gonads are generally underdeveloped or retarded as far as proper activity and hormone production is concerned. In such cases, fat is often deposited on the hips and waist only and never on the arms and legs, so that these limbs are not excessively big. In women the breasts show considerable fat deposits instead of being the shapely glands they normally are. Sagging breast, due to a malfunction of the ovaries, are often an additional worry of overweight women. This type of obesity cannot be dealt with successfully either by dieting or any other kind of slimming course. Weight loss may be possible only if the causes are treated. This means that the gonads must be stimulated and the thyroid as well as the pituitary must be given attention. When choosing medication we will certainly want to turn to seaweed, especially as contained in Kelpasan, for reliable results.

The diet should be low in protein and all white flour products should be avoided, as well as white sugar. Instead, stick to a natural whole-food diet and take plenty of juices, including beetroot, carrot and celery. A carrot juice diet is beneficial. Juices of organic grapefruit, grapes and oranges are also excellent. Experience will tell which juice suits you best, because certain acids, although harmless to people in good health, do not always agree with someone who is not quite so well. If you want to achieve good results without complications, follow the reactions of your body and take care. Also, drink only reasonable quantities of the juices, because you could do more harm than good by overdoing it. Caution is recommended even when the juices and remedies which are to help reduce weight are natural.

Exercise and deep-breathing, preferably in mountain or ocean air, are amongst some of the best remedies for stimulating the glands. Where the appetite is a contributory cause of obesity it requires attention too. People whose digestion works well, or whose body metabolises food efficiently have a tendency toward a ferocious appetite. For them the most effective remedy is to follow the old and tested principle that you should stop eating when the food tastes best! A diet prescribed for this situation must follow certain rules: it must be low in carbohydrates and fats and high in raw and fresh produce, that is, raw vegetables either as salads or as juices.

It is important to avoid all kinds of sweets and white flour products. If you like soups, forget cream soups and leave them to those who want to put on weight! Since beer is one of the worst things an obese person can drink, the need to avoid it may be a real stumbling block for some men. As regards meat, limit your intake to lean muscle-fibre cuts. What is more, it is best to remove all animal fats from your kitchen lest you be tempted to use them. One exception is fresh butter, which may be eaten in limited quantities. Season your food with the various kinds of cress, horseradish, paprika, curry and yeast extracts, as well as Herbamare and Plantaforce. These herbs and spices have a stimulating effect on the endocrine glands and the metabolic processes.

Medications claiming to melt down fat are highly dangerous and should be avoided at all cost, for one’s health is more precious than a trim figure. Preparations containing seaweed and cellulose, which expand in volume, are tolerated for a short period of time, but after a while the patient gets tired of them. The best weight-reducing plan is one that utilises kelp, since it contains minerals in concentrated form and potassium iodide. Kelp not only stimulates the function of the endocrine glands, as mentioned earlier, and consequently helps to reduce weight, but it also induces a positive feeling of wellbeing. A word of caution, however: people suffering from exophthalmic goitre must take kelp only in homoeopathic doses. Kelp is known to be one of the richest of all seaweeds. It will suffice, therefore, if the person takes one or two Kelpasan tablets in the morning and at noon, and Helix Slim as directed, a steady reduction of weight will be noticed from month to month, and the general condition of health and vitality will improve at the same time. Many patients have been helped to lose weight by taking Kelpasan and can testify to the truth of this statement.

Some useful information

1. Obesity often begins in childhood. Children are weaned onto solid food too soon or are given too much food for their needs, causing weight gain. Very often parents indulge their children providing a feast of refined carbohydrates and white flour foods, sugar, sweets, cold-drinks, fatty take-away foods and potato chips. These children’s bodies adapt to this type of food which requires high levels of insulin to process. As they get older and become more sedentary, these people will gain weight alarmingly. These people will always tell you that they really don’t eat that much, but gain weight easily. For them, it is necessary to create a brand new chemistry response to food.

2. Breast fed babies on regular controlled feeds will have less of a weight issue in their lives than artificially on demand fed infants. Excessive breastfeeding can also lead to obesity. It needs to be noted that the breastfeeding mother’s diet needs to be healthy to produce healthy milk! An obese mother who eats an unhealthy diet of refined foods can do much harm to her baby via her breast milk.

3. Most obese people have problems with blood sugar levels. They can also suffer more easily from raised cholesterol levels, and high blood pressure. Obese people are more prone to diabetes, strokes and heart attacks.

4. Obesity will result from the disturbed bio-chemistry in the person in response to a diet high in fats, sugars, refined flour and low activity levels.

5. Remember, 20 minutes of fast walking per day can easily help to slim excess weight from the body over a period of time.

6. Alcohol is a refine carbohydrate! It should be avoided along with sugar and white flour products to ensure a steady drop in weight.

7. How could you judge if you are overweight?
(a) Look in the mirror. If you look like a blob and not a figure 8, you have a problem!
(b) If you float easily in water it means you have plenty of fat. When you begin to sink easily on exhalation, you are getting there!

8. Carrying excess weight should be addressed as soon as possible. The damage it does to the body, mind,and soul, robs people of a joyous life.

What to do:

• Follow a basic diet which includes raw fruit, raw vegetables, cooked vegetables, proteins, unrefined carbohydrates and natural unprocessed fats and oils. Please refer to the “Back to Good Health” diet sheet to give you an idea of a healthy eating plan.

• Do not overeat. Rather have frequent small meals throughout the day.

• Do not eat on the run. You will not know how much you have eaten as your attention is elsewhere. Focus on your meal or your snack.
• Get a proper medical assessment to exclude any possibility of something else being wrong in the body which could be causing chemical disturbances and weight gain.

• Learn how to prepare meals from whole-food ingredients. This is a lifelong pursuit in health. Your interest needs to be maintained in this new lifestyle. The typical yo-yo weight swing happens when people have lost some weight, but they go back to their old habits! Old habits need to be replaced by knowledge of why a new habit must be found.

• Do not follow fad diets. Do not expect to lose weight overnight. A gradual weight loss is desired as the body will adjust, with no harm done. Remember, it took years of overeating to get to where you are. Keep your focus and intention on good healthy living to which the weight loss will be a bonus.

• Do not starve yourself. Eat regular healthy meals to regulate body chemistry which in turn will assist with the restoration of your body function and will result automatically in weight loss.

• Live a life of self respect and no compromise. Self-control and self-respect and self-worth all go hand in hand. To make a glutton of yourself carries no self-respect and the disgust you will have for yourself will perpetuate this destructive behaviour.


Obesity can start in childhood when excessive refined carbohydrates, sugars, juices and milk is fed to young children. Lack of exercise, together with a diet of refined foods will result in obesity. The goal should be to lose the excess weight gradually over a few months, even years. A lifestyle change needs to be put in place with a different set of values. This is the key to success.

Glandular disturbances could be at the root of weight issues and should be diagnosed professionally. This is rare however. In areas in the world where no food is available, everybody generally gets thin! Rather say to yourself that you are following a lifestyle to keep you well; not thin. Make your focus wellness, the thinness will come automatically.

Healthy Nutrition

Health begins with good nutrition, but how are we to decide what is good and what is not in the face of so much consumer health advice? The first thing to remember is that each of us is unique, with unique nutritional needs. A lifestyle and diet that benefits one person may not necessarily benefit another; there is no such thing as a single correct diet. But is there a universal guideline we can adhere to? Perhaps one: wholefoods – in as close to their natural state as possible. Having undergone minimal, if any, processing, wholefoods are without exception, more nutritious than refined foods. We are not able to improve the quality of food by exposing it to a process. We don’t have any processes that can add life to anything; we can only take life out of things. The fewer steps the original food type has gone through, the more nutrition is left in it. After all, we evolved in harmony with our environment, where the process of eating and digesting became compatible with available food, which consisted of specific balanced combinations of nutrients. The process of refining and processing food changes the balance of nutrients, and thereby compromises its nutritional value.

The following recommended diet is intended only as a guideline. Above all, learn to listen to your body’s response to the different foods you eat, and develop your own healthy nutritional plan!
