Exercise To Control Anger (Health)

Do you feel irritated or full of anger? Are you nervous? Reflect a little; remember that anger can provoke gastric ulcers. Control anger through breathing. Inhale the vital air very slowly (do not inhale through your mouth; inhale through your nose, keeping your mouth properly closed) mentally counting 1-2-3- 4-5-6. Hold your breath, mentally counting 1-2-3-4-5-6. Now, exhale very slowly through your mouth, mentally counting 1-2-3-4-5-6. Repeat the exercise until your anger subsides.

How to Clean Atmosphere from Alcoholic larvae (Health)

Every human being carries an atomic atmosphere perceptible to clairvoyants. Alcoholic larvae live in the fourth dimension. The drunkard carries, in this ultra-sensitive atmosphere, alcoholic larvae that stimulate him in the vice that gave them life, impulsing him to drink. The aforementioned larvae only disintegrate with the fumes of sulphur.

Treatment for Alcoholism (Health)


Perfumes combined with mental power constitute a marvelous healing system. Drunkards can be healed by wisely combining these two elements. Do you have any loved one who is a victim of the vice of alcoholism? When he is asleep, hold his hand with your right hand, make him smell a delicious perfume, a rose extract, and then talk to him with a soft voice as if he was awake; advise him, explain to him in a detailed way what the horrible vice of alcoholism is. Remember that when the body sleeps, the Ego leaves the body and travels in the fourth dimension. The words you utter to the sleeping person reach the eardrum, then go on to the brain’s sensory center and are then transmitted to the Ego even when the latter is far away from the physical body On awakening, the Ego returns to the physical body and if he does not remember what you told him, you can be certain that all you have said has remained in your loved one’s subconscious. These words produce their effect little by little and the day finally arrives when the patient is cured of the horrible vice of alcoholism.

Vegetarian Diet (Health)

The majority of people believe that a meal without meat is incomplete. Nothing is more erroneous because science has demonstrated that nutrition obtained from vegetables has a greater sustaining power. All animals carry within them the poisons of putrefaction. The venous blood is full of carbonic acid and other noxious substances. These harmful and repugnant substances are found everywhere in meat and when we eat these foods we fill our bodies with these toxins. Abundant proof exists which demonstrates that a carnivorous diet stimulates ferocity. Let us observe the ferocity of the beasts of prey and the cruelty of the cannibals and compare them with the prodigious strength and docility of cattle, of the elephant, of the horse...However, let us not jump to the conclusion that everyone should give up eating meat, once and for all, and dedicate themselves to eating vegetables. It would be crazy for a person to change his ordinary diet, which he has been using for years and which is nourishing him adequately. To eliminate meat from the ordinary diet of the people accustomed to it would completely undermine their health. The only way to proceed is by first experimenting and studying things. You should be very careful with your nutrition. We do not ask you to give up meat, once and for all, but we do warn you that meat, when consumed in large quantities (for example, every day), is like poison for the body. Dr. Arnold Krumm Heller, Professor of Medicine of the University of Berlin and great Gnostic doctor, held that meat should only be 20% of man’s diet. We have verified that some foods such as wheat, eggs, avocados, etc., can substitute for meat. Cereals, in general, are of great nutritive value. The protein from cow’s milk is marvelous. Milk from soybeans is very nutritious and its chemical composition is similar to that of cow’s milk. Food should be used in a balanced manner. Avoid eating white bread; white flour is harmful and does not contain any nourishment. Eat dark bread, plantains, corn flour, instead of white bread and white flour. Eat many vegetables; remember that vegetables are fountains of great nourishment. Vitamins are found in vegetables. *Notice: Excerpt from “The Mystery Of The Golden Blossom – chapter 13- The Ritual Of Pancatatwa” about of to eat meat and the vegetarian diet. By what method or manner can we acquire the miraculous igneous powers of the Tejas Tatwa if we make the mistake of renouncing the carnivorous element? Unfortunately, the human multitude either becomes radically vegetarian or turns almost cannibalistic.

To Perform Massages to Heal without Pain (Prayer-Health)

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, Most Holy Trinity, the three Divine Persons. Saint Blas ahead, Saint Peter behind. Saint Blas, if these words are good, then let the tendons and joints return to their place.

(Apply these words in the name of Jesus Christ.)

When Jesus Christ came to the world there were no injuries, no one maimed, no one lame, so let the injuries cease and Hail, Mary.

Pray the “Apostle’s Creed” three times. If the injury is not too severe, pray the “Apostle’s Creed” three times. However, if the injury is very bad, pray the “Apostle’s Creed” nine times. Rub menthol with salt onto the injury.

Prayer for Healing (Prayer-Health)

The Masters of the Holy Gnostic Church gather at the bed of the sick in order to heal them. A Gnostic Prayer exists, which every sick person must pronounce in order to ask the Masters for help. Behold, the prayer:


Oh Thou, Solar Logos, igneous Emanation, substance and consciousness of Christ, powerful life where everything advances, come unto me and penetrate me, enlighten me, bathe me, go through me and awaken within my Being all of those ineffable substances that are as much a part of Thee as well as part of me.

Universal and cosmic force, mysterious energy, I conjure Thee, come unto me, remedy my affliction, cure me from this ill and put apart from me this suffering so I can have harmony, peace and health.

I ask Thee in thy sacred name which the Mysteries and the Gnostic Church have taught me, so Thou can make vibrate with me all of the mysteries of this plane and superior planes, and that all of those forces together may achieve the miracle of my healing. So be it.

-Samael Aun Weor, Treatise of Occult Medicine and Practical Magic, Chapter: The Gnostic Church


Medicine with the Zodiacal Perfumes (Zodiac-Health)

ARIES: perfume of Myrrh

TAURUS: perfume of Costus root, an aromatic herb

GEMINI : perfume of Mastic

LEO: perfume of Frankincense

VIRGO: perfume of White Sandalwood

The whole organism of the sick person vigorously reacts when under the activity of the scent of his own zodiacal perfume.

Dental Abscess (Health)

These abscesses easily burst by applying a poultice of leaves and shoots from the Tomato plant, which must be alternated with another poultice of Chamomile that is heated in a stock made from a hen. 


Hemorrhoids (Health)

First Formula

Make a decoction of thirty grams of Plantain (Plantago major L.) and thirty grams of Mallow (Malva sylvestris L.) to which the same quantity of the following powders must be added: ‘Piedralipe’, ground ‘cacho’ (horn) and frankincense. The infected parts must be dabbed with this mixture with a piece of cotton, until totally healed.

Second Formula

The Hemorrhoid sickness is extremely bothering, although it is very easy to cure. It is enough to sit over a piece of ice and the problem is resolved.

Thus, application of ice over the Hemorrhoids is the clue in order to make them disappear. 


Anemia (Health)

First Formula

Ferrous Sulfate

Second Formula

Squeeze the juice from one beet and mix it with the same quantity of orange juice. The patient will consume this in the morning on an empty stomach, during nine days of every month.


Asthma (Health)

Asthma is a horrible sickness that has killed many people.

This ominous sickness is cured with the pressed juice of the Cabbage plant.

Add two egg yolks from a hen, shells and all, then sweeten the remedy with honey (bee honey), at least half of a glass of honey.

It is necessary to boil all of these elements as best as possible and to take off the foam when it is rising to the top.

Then, add Saffron and even a spoonful of fine sugar. There is the need to cook and prepare this syrup very well until it acquires a good consistency.

I believe that a little bit of sodium benzoate must be added to the syrups, no matter which syrup, so that they do not ferment. However, the quantity of such a substance should be only the amount that can be taken with the tip of a knife. This is what signifies a little bit of sodium benzoate.

However, sodium benzoate will not be necessary if the syrup can be kept very well stored within the refrigerator. It is ostensible that the syrup will be very well preserved in this condition, without the necessity of adding sodium benzoate.

Therefore, sodium benzoate is not necessary. Everything depends upon the way in which we can preserve this syrup. 


Blood Purifier (Health)

Bury in a very sunny place for the space of fifteen days a bottle of rum to which some quantity of Carob tree bark has to be mixed. Then, at the end of the fifteenth day take the bottle out. Thus, the cleanser will be ready. This will be consumed by little cupfuls, one every hour. 


Chronic Headaches (Health)

Chronic headaches can be very easily cured: Fix to the bottom of the feet of the patient the following:

Put oil and little pieces of onion over a leaf from a Banana-Plantain tree. Such a leaf with these described elements will help the patient when it is applied to the patient’s feet.

The leaf must be tied to the patient’s feet. Command the sick person to lie down. It is clear that because of the poultice being on the patient’s feet, he must remain lying down.

The sick person will drink the decoction of Chicory with lemon, as he would drink water, for a period of time.

This type of medicine must be performed every day and with a lot of faith until becoming radically healed.

Bless the plants, beg the elemental of each one of them to heal the sick person. 


Medicinal Elixir in Order to Live a Totally Healthy Long Life (Health)

A bottle of fine rum, Juniper one portion, Gentian two ounces, Rosemary two ounces, Cascara Sagrada one ounce, Rhubarb two ounces, twenty-two percent alcohol half ounce:

Rhubarb can be acquired in powder or in tincture form.

The Rosemary can be acquired as a vegetal branch.

The Gentian can be acquired in tincture form.

The Cascara Sagrada can also be acquired in tincture form.

In case of not being able to acquire the Juniper, the elixir can be prepared without it.

I believe that this elixir can be consumed by little spoonfuls. Take three teaspoons daily.

Obviously, all the elements of this elixir must be mixed and then placed inside of a bottle.

I understand that the best rum is the one made from sugar cane.

Whosoever drinks this elixir must be very careful of not falling into the horrifying danger of that frightful, abominable, repulsive and filthy vice of alcohol. 


Heartburn (Health)

The troubling Heartburn sickness can be cured by drinking vegetal teas of the following plants:

Chicory (Cichorium intybus L.), Dill (Anethum graveolens L.), Chamomile, Gentian (Gentiana lutea), Centaury (Centaurium umbellatum) Celery (Apium graveolens L.), Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale Weber), Wormwood (Artemisia absinthium L.).

Any of these plants is marvelous against heartburn.

Simply boil it and drink it as an ordinary beverage.

It is advisable for those who suffer from heartburn to have more order in their meals.

Therefore, such sick people must avoid flour, starches and sweets.

They must eat only three meals daily and should not be gluttonous. 


Constipation (Health)

Constipation must be combated with teas of Chicory with Lemon, or teas of Plums, Flax, Rhubarb (Rheum spp.), Agar Agar (Gelidium cartilagineum), Boxwood (Buxus sempervirens L.), Cascara Sagrada (Rhammus purshiana DC.), Chard, Orange juice, etc.

One daily teaspoon of Castor oil on an empty stomach helps to get rid of constipation. 


Insomnia (Health)

Those who suffer from Insomnia must take wine mixed with seeds of the Poppy plant or make tablets of dried Cilantro (Coriandrum sativum) with sugar and eat them at the time when going to sleep. If there is no wine at hand, just the decoction of the seeds of the Poppy plant is enough in order to give good results.


Menopause (Health)

During women’s critical age, frightful irregularities exist in their menstruation, as well as disorders in the ovaries.

Naturally, these bring on many other disorders. Therefore, women who are in their critical age must drink teas of the following marvelous plants:

Barberry (Berberis vulgaris L.), Artemisia (Artemisia spp.), Viburnum (Viburnum spp.), Juniper and also Horehound (Marrubium vulgare L.).

These teas will alleviate them. The teas must be cooked preferably in clay pots.


Tooth Ache (Health)

First Formula

Cook a piece of Alum, then humidify a piece of cotton within this water and afterwards apply it to the gums, changing the cotton constantly. This remedy makes the molar ache to disappear.

Second Formula – magic secrets to cure tooth aches

The affected tooth of the patient must be observed and the patient must divert his sight towards another place. Then, while you perform the sign of the cross with your head pronounce the following mantras: “ONOS AGNES”. This secret is effective, because the pain passes away almost instantly.


Hoarseness (Health)

The decoction of Pennyroyal stops hoarseness. 


Sinusitis or Sinuses (Health)

The cause of this sickness is when a person bathes himself while being with catarrh or head cold. It is characterized by pain and bad odor in the root of the nose. The doctors used to scrape the gristle (cartilaginous tissue which divides the nose’s nostrils). This would often disfigure the face of the patient, without achieving the cure and giving no more than a transitory relief.

We, the Gnostics, cure this sickness in the space of eight days with the decoction of Arnica, ‘Rema’ (Gouania polygma Urb.) and Sage plants.

In order to harvest these plants one has to proceed as we indicated for cancer. Then, the plants are boiled in a pot with water. The hot vapor must be inhaled for one hour daily.

The sick person will bless the decoction and will ask the elementals for their healing intervention.

Combine these inhalations with head baths, one every day, with the decoction of the following plants:

Orange or Lemon leaves, ‘Rema’ (Gouania polygma Urb.), Pennyroyal, ‘Santa Maria’ (Bryophyllum pinnatum), Arnica and Mammee (Mammea americana L.).

In order to collect these leaves, the ritual already indicated must be performed and one must imperiously ask the elementals to perform the healing. When the sick person cannot personally harvest the leaves, then, he will perform the ceremony at home, since, (we repeat) the ones which cure are not the plants but the elementals.


The Exercises of Lamasery (Heath)

“The system that I am teaching you is marvelous, because it permits the development of the chakras and the curing of illnesses. All the other exercises complement each other. These exercises are not merely physical, but they are six methods of prayer. It is a different system of healing and rejuvenation through prayer.”
