Measles symptoms are: a cold, coughing, fever, jaded and swollen eyes. There may be diarrhea, also. After this, some white sore (aphthras) appear in the mouth, throat and nose. Later, some small red dots like a rash appear behind the ears, on the neck, then on the face, body, arms and legs. There is a temperature and discomfort until these small red dots appear.
Consult your physician immediately. In addition to getting plenty of rest and having a good diet, the person with measles should remain in bed and drink a lot of liquids and juices. This will take away any itching and burning. If you have temperatures see the topic on fever to find a way to lower it. In the case of an earache, use one or two drops of good ear drops as suggested by Physician in each ear. Take Echinacea and garlic to strengthen the immune system. Measles may cause complications like pneumonia, meningitis, etc.
Warning! Measles are very contagious so one should be cautious not to be in contact with an infected person. Consult your physician.
NAILS, VARIOUS PROBLEMS
Nails protect the sensitive nerve endings from harm and injury. Nails are formed of proteins, keratin and minerals.
Symptoms: Nutritional deficiencies produce the following problems:
- A lack of Vitamin A and calcium makes them dry and brittle.
- A lack of B Complex vitamins causes weakness and cracking.
- A deficiency of vitamin B12 causes dry, dark nails and causes them to be excessively rounded and curved.
- A deficiency of proteins is evidenced by white stripes on the nails.
- A deficiency of Iron-calcium produces spoon shaped nails with a raised tip.

Fungus on Nails. Fungus on nails is a common ailment but hard to eliminate. One of the main reasons why it is difficult to eliminate the fungus in the nail is because of the difficulty of fungicides to penetrate to the root below the nail.Suggestion:It is recommended to eat yogurt every day. The lacto bacillus or acidophilus destroys the fungus “Candida albicans” which may be causing this condition under the nails.
Psoriasis is a disease, which causes skin cells to reproduce themselves every other day instead of every 21 days and this produces excessive peeling. It is not contagious.
Symptoms are: Redness in certain areas of the body, with pearl color scales which are constantly peeling off, irritation and in some cases bleeding. This occurs mainly on elbows, knees, arms, hands, legs, chest, abdomen, groin, neck and ears. Fingernails and toenails lose their shine and become rigid and brittle.
The cause is unknown; however, it is known that there is a great psychosomatic influence, because the problem increases with nervousness and stress. The lack of polyunsaturated fats like omega-3 in the body is related to this disease. Correct reproduction of the cells is carried out due to the balance maintained by two substances called cyclic AMP and GMP. When the delicate balance between these two substances is broken, the production of the skin cells gets out of control and results in psoriasis. It has been found that a poor digestion of proteins (which causes rotting and bacteria) produces a toxic amino acid (polyamine) which breaks down this balance. Vitamin A or beta-carotene stops the formation of this toxic substance (polyamine) and helps prevent psoriasis.
Dr. Murray Pizzorno recommends a complete detoxification of the body because there are a considerable number of toxins involved in psoriasis, including some bacteria. These toxins increase cyclic GMP, breaking down the balance it maintains with the AMP which increases the cell production. A lack of fiber in the diet helps the accumulation of toxins in the intestine. A deficiency in the liver function encourages the formation of psoriasis. One of the liver’s functions is to filter toxins and bacteria. When this fails, these toxins enter the blood and contribute to the formation of polyamine which again produce and imbalance between AMP and GMP. This results in excess production of the skin cells. A high consumption of alcohol increases psoriasis considerably. This is mainly because of the negative effect that alcohol has on the liver. The person should stop drinking alcohol. Exposing oneself to the sun every day for 10 minutes is also beneficial. It has been observed that this problem increases when there is stress and diminishes when the person is calm and relaxed.
