Numbers and Disease

Planetary Significance of Herbal Cures

Part 1

To keep in good health is one of the essentials to success in life, and in following these rules, one can only benefit by this advice.

The same students of occultism who discovered the extraordinary influence of numbers in connection with the destiny of individuals, also discovered the sympathy of certain plants, limits, and herbs that in the world of nature are related to the planets and months of the year in which people are born, and so evolved a system by which pain and illness can be alleviated by the use of such herbs, or fruits which correspond to each planet and consequently to the number of birth.
I have collected this information from some of the most ancient sources of knowledge on occultism and from those who have devoted their lives to the investigation of the subject. To this I have added my own experience, in the belief that by the study of nature was may find the secrets of nature and so honour nature’s God by fitting in with His purpose and design, which is shown in all things, from the smallest to the greatest.

Number 1: Persons, or all those born on the 1st, 10th, 19th, and 28th of any month, have a tendency to suffer from the heart in some form or another, such as palpitation, irregular circulation, and in advanced life, high blood-pressure. They re also likely to have trouble with the eyes, or astigmatism, and would do well to have their sight carefully tested from time to time.

The principal herbs and fruits for number 1 persons, or all those whose birth number is the 1st, 10th, 19th, or 28th, are:

Raisins, chamomile, eye-bright, St. John’s wort, saffron, cloves, nutmeg, sorrel, borage, gentian root, lavender, bay leaves, oranges, lemons, dates, thyme, myrrh, musk vervain, ginger, barley (barley bread and barley water). Number 1 persons should eat honey as much as possible.

They will find their nineteenth, twenty-eighty, thirty-seventh, and fifty-fifth years will bring them important changes in health one way or the other.

Number 3: Persons, or all those born on the 3rd, 12th, 21st, or 30th, have a tendency to suffer from overstrain of the nervous system, generally brought on by overwork and their desire not to spare themselves in anything they do. They are inclined to have severe attacks of neuritis and sciatica, also many forms of skin troubles.
