Berries

Berries are still richer in the positive, alkaline mineral elements than the acid and subacid fruits. Therefore, they possess great medicinal values. The country people in Germany gather in their seasons, the different kinds of berries, and preserve and dry them for use in the winter.

Huckleberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, gooseberries, elderberries, currants and cranberries, besides being delicious raw foods, make excellent soups, drinks and desserts, and are to be classed among Nature's finest remedies. They run from forty to one hundred parts per thousand in the positive, alkaline mineral elements.
The widespread belief that the seeds of berries and fruits are responsible for many cases of appendicitis is another fairy tale. The best way to prevent appendicitis is to live largely on seed-containing fruits and berries, and on other kinds of raw food. The small seeds which are swallowed act as scourers of the intestinal tract. They stimulate the peristaltic movements of the bowels and are natural laxatives. Appendicitis, in ninety percent of all cases, is caused by a sluggish, atrophic condition of the intestines.
Huckleberries, blueberries and blackberries are excellent medicines, not only for diarrhea but for all other ailments of the digestive tract. In severe diarrhea, dysentery, bloody flux and cholera morbus, no food whatsoever should be taken - only water mixed with acid fruit or berry juices. Blackberries and raspberries make delicious drinks and are fine tonics for weak stomachs.
