Gencydo - a hay fever remedy

Hay fever presents as an inflammatory condition of the mucous membranes of eyes, nose, throat and upper respiratory passages. The patient's history often shows "exudative diathesis"; during childhood. These indications point to the etheric (life) body and the abnormal behavior of the astral (sentient) body. The etheric body takes over, while the astral withdraws, showing a disinclination to take proper hold of etheric and physical. The catarrhal symptoms result because the regular influence of the astral body (and the ego organization too) over the diseased parts is weakened. It becomes hypersensitive, explaining the sudden attacks and spasmodic reactions to sense impressions such as light, heat, cold, and dust.

The healing process must come to the assistance of the astral body, helping it enter in and take proper hold of the etheric. This can be achieved with the juice of fruits containing a leathery protective skin or rind. Observation of these fruits (lemon and quince) shows how strongly they are subject to form-creating forces working inwards. By applying a remedy of such juices externally and internally we can stimulate the astral body and urge it in the direction of the etheric. The juices' mineral constituents (potassium, calcium and silica) enhance this stimulation from the side of the ego organization. Thus a real cure for hay fever is effected.
