Treatment of infectious diseases

Knowledge of infectious diseases in folk medicine has developed gradually and in connection with the terrible disaster which they inflicted. The people I knew in the first place especially dangerous diseases: plague, cholera, flu, stinging (dysentery), typhoid and typhus.
Good to note that the causal factors in the spread on our land called infectious diseases were too few: a small number of classic
medieval cities were ignored when the orientation of the homes, lack of ventilation, when sewage and other waste poured and thrown on the street and on the heads of passers-by astronomical numbers of rodents and the like.
The geographical fragmentation of the population, small density, no significant migration from one region to another, and this contributed to a sedentary life, subsistence farming and agricultural culture. Protection of water supply. Source, a well, generally water-svetina. The construction of separate housing and separate utility room. Wakefulness cleanliness in the home, in the yard. Use for washing and boiling of underwear anti-bacterial medicinal plants and natural insecticides (hatchets, chernokoren, thyme, oregano, cumin, sand, etc.).
The advantage of heat treatment (meat, fish, milk, vegetables). Too exquisite neatness of the people. Overall steady as the proverbial parable, comes from ancient times, became hereditary phrase: “Wash your hands sit down to the table”. In this sentence laid the eternal rational element of people’s hygienic culture. This postulate, which host or hostess, turn to family, guests, participants and the like.
Preparing for a funeral holidays are always diverse and thought out in advance. Cleaned the yard, painted the house, cleaned and whitewashed room, dining room, bedroom, washed, ironed, washed, burned garbage. A holiday present is a special harmony and sublimity of the soul. This with a man there and really incredible things: – suggestion of good mood, bright future, hope, happiness and prosperity. It takes samarlakota, distraction, or ignoring the troublesome worries of life, his agony and misery, the evil destiny. And the already mentioned high people’s hygienic culture ruled out of origin and especially the spread of acute intestinal infections and other epidemic diseases. All is in harmony.
That the people had had enough certain knowledge of dangerous diseases, to evidence the existence of such Sworn (So you tetanus set). (To syphilis ate, let your language syphilis sit ). These ominous wishes to marvel at the people now. Three of them do not require interpretation. But syphilis — syphilis. People know that this disease sweet can “grab”, and its very tragic consequences (rubber, amyelotrophy, etc.).
The treatment of colds, influenza, and tuberculosis is being developed as a folk medicine identical means. It is primarily the use of food and medicinal plants, propolis, and vitamin sweatshops means when phthisis and excessive perspiration on the contrary the use of plants that reduce sweating, diet products.
With phytoncide means our nation uses horseradish, onions, garlic, black radish, kidney different types of poplars, with sweatshops and also the volatile oregano, thyme, Linden flowers, plants with the presence of volatile oils, lemon balm, mint, Geum urban, cornflowers Menolly and camphor, yarrow, etc. With vitamin means, the fruits of raspberry, strawberry, black currant, gooseberries, fruit and vegetables of wide range, as well as honey, propolis solution, dairy products, rich in essential amino acids.Phytoncide plants (food) are used for seasonings and for inhalation. they are washed, rubbed on a grater with small cells, diluted with warm water in the kettle and inhale the vapors.
Use for inhalation also boiled small potatoes, where, as strain off the boiling water, put 10-20 grams of oregano, mint, thyme, lavender, lemon balm, rosemary, eucalyptus, crushed the buds of poplar, birch or aspen. Cutouts blanket and breathe 5-7 min.
Use for inhalation upon tuberculosis, cancer, diseases of the bronchi and lungs of a 20% solution of buds of black poplar, aspen, birch, roots with rhizomes erect cinquefoil, Burnet, the leaves of the mistletoe. The last three have a significant therapeutic effect in pulmonary hemorrhage and ankazomborona.
Make tinctures of grated horseradish on the ready-made alcohol infusions at the rate of 1 weight part of hell for ten volume parts of infusion. Held for 5-10 min., Filtered and used for inhalation in influenza, adenovirus infection, bronchiectasis, cancer. In the course of treatment 7-15 procedures. The procedure is repeated on a quarterly basis and is subject to exacerbations of the disease.
Good to note that the tincture of the buds of black poplar and aspen, purple Echinacea, sage, propolis, both single and in combination, especially with grated horseradish, garlic, onion, black radish, bacteriostatic and bactericidal effect on pathogenic Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, bacteria, blue-green pus and are by natural means very effective, delivered on time urgent requirements of medical science. (The vast majority of modern patented drugs and the sulfa drugs had almost no effect on the bacteria and their various associations).
The use of plants with diaphoretic and expectorant purpose is completely identical in folk and scientific medicine. Identical to application of multivitamin remedies and dietetics.
To prevent plagues (epidemics) our people are used initially and primarily fire. The corpses of plague and cholera patients as well as their belongings, clothes, excrement that was delivered, left or threw Turkish and Tatar kidnappers, levied straw, wood branches, covered with oil, oil, other flammable substances and burned.
To prevent the “cough”, or, in modern primary pneumonic plague wore masks over the nose and mouth. The mask was made of dense fabrics of flax or hemp and leaked tincture of horseradish, garlic, onions. The people had a certain concept and quarantine regime. The patients were isolated, and the population for a certain period of hiding in the mountains, valleys, churches, monasteries, hermitages and even in places which were inaccessible to the migration of people.
To combat cholera, fever, stinging (dysentery) the Arsenal of drugs is much greater. This infusions and decoctions, and especially vodka infusions (20%) of the roots with rhizomes erect cinquefoil, avens urban, of Burnet, oak Gal, herb Hypericum perforatum, the roots of geranium meadow, etc. Take it as a prophylactic, and therapeutic purposes. Infusions and decoctions take 50-100-150 ml 3-4 times daily after 2:00 after eating. Vodka infusions 1-2 tablespoons 4-5 times a day for ZO min before meals. Courses of treatment for 3-4 weeks.
Still good to note that a preventative, especially in the Cossack period, was widely used plants that normalize and increase the acidity of gastric juice: stinging nettle, dandelion roots medicinal, herb motherwort heart, the grass itself force Gayevoi, grass capolicy fragrant, leaves of bean trefoil, marjoram, thyme, yarrow, centaury, plantain leaves. Almost all of these plants moved from folk medicine and found its identical applicationThe fight against spotted fever began with the destruction of lice. Generally people very unkindly treated varmint, Sluts, brudnoy, saveselected. Savosin lenny – wool, sphagnum moss, hemp (no wool), as well as old covers, blankets and other household items, usually burned. Sheared the hair on his head, linen boiled, where prolonged boiling killed the insects and nits. New clothes translated insecticidal plants: hatchets, chernokoren, tansy, yarrow, lemon balm, mint, oregano, thyme, etc. For the treatment of typhus used plants which reduce fever and put the strength, kidneys black poplar, aspen, birch, grass lungwort drug, St. John’s wort, mint, oregano, plantain leaves, hawthorn fruits, rose hips cinnamon, rhizomes of couch grass, the roots of chicory, dandelion, nettle, pulmonaria officinalis, fruits, vegetables, dairy products.
