Swedish Bitters - Maria Treben Testimony

Maria Treben's testimony from her book "Health through God's Pharmacy" has been edited for clarity....

When my son was six years old, he was attacked by an Alsatian and mauled in the face. Later, dark red scars covered his face from the nose upward. In the "Old Manuscript", point 33 states that this tincture takes away all scars, wounds and cuts, even if very old, if moistened up to 40 times. Therefore, our son's scars were now moistened daily. Very soon, they disappeared, even the ones deep in the nose.

With these experiences, I came to our town in 1953. During a visit to a farmhouse, I met the farmer's wife, a mother of two small children, milking cows. Instead of a word of greeting, she said: "If you stood me against the well, I would let you shoot me." for weeks, she had suffered from terrible headaches, and she was supposed to go for x-rays. The same evening, I sent my son with a small bottle of Swedish Bitters to her so she might find relief, at least at night. How surprised I was when, at 7 a.m., the farmer came to me saying: what did you send my wife? After applying it to the head, the headaches had gone quickly. And in the morning, two dark brown clots of the thickness of a little finger came down her throat. This woman swears by Swedish Bitters even today and was able to help her little daughter, who suffered from pneumonia years ago. Never is she without this household remedy.

For months, a woman suffered from frontal sinusitis. She could not breathe through her nose and was plagued by terrible headaches. Despite antibiotics and radiation treatment, her condition did not improve. Then she applied Swedish Bitters as a compress over the forehead, eyes and nose, and already after the first use, she felt relief. Three nightly treatments later, large amounts of pus came through her nose, and she could breathe normally again.

From sight, I knew a young woman who became a shadow of herself after the birth of her sixth child. I spoke to her and learned that, at this time, she was unable to eat anything and was also unable to keep the children with her. I recommended Swedish Bitters to her. About three weeks later, I saw her as a healthy young woman who could eat normally and had the children with her again. Her mother had been in hospital with a swollen foot and, for a long time, had only been able to walk with a stick. Despite 75 injections, there was no improvement. Therefore, this young woman sent her mother the recipe for the Swedish Bitters, advising her to try them. Her mother's foot is back to normal, and the stick is unnecessary.

One day, I received a letter from Germany in which an acquaintance asked me to look after her niece, who was taking a cure at Gallspach. I was shocked when the young woman came to see me for the first time. She was lifted out of the car, crutches were put under her arms, and it took her, despite help, more than an hour to come up to my flat on the first floor.

The joints of both feet were deformed, the fingers crippled and unable to hold anything when walking; the body was thrown forward, and the legs pulled after. I stood at the door, my hands pressed against my heart, unable to say anything except: how does a young woman like you have such a terrible illness? "Overnight after my fourth child", she replied. Quite suddenly, almost overnight, this young woman lay crippled in her bed. She was taken from doctor to doctor, and nobody could help her. Twice a year, she came to Gallspach to Dr. Zeileis, who had to tell her he could not cure her, only ease the trouble.

I recommended Swedish bitter and told her to believe in it. This was in February 1964. In September, I received a telephone call from the young woman asking if I could meet her at the bus stop. I was baffled, then surprised, when a smiling young woman, still leaning on a stick, descended the bus.

The stiffness and crippling of the hands was gone, as well as the deformation of the legs. Only the left foot, the knee and the ankle were still swollen. But on the third of August 1966, a year later, this too had disappeared completely, and she came without a stick, a healthy woman to take the cure for the last time. She had put one tablespoon of Swedish Bitters three times daily into a small amount of lukewarm water and sipped it before and after each meal.

I want to give a few more examples of the healing effects of Swedish Bitters.

From my sister, who lives in Germany, I learned that a mutual acquaintance from Leipzig had used a wheelchair for 15 years. She spent the war years in Prague. In 1945, like many others, she spent weeks in a cellar without bedding. Later, she came to Leipzig with her husband. Soon, she suffered from terrible deformation of the joints and then came life in a wheelchair.

I only learned of her difficult fate when her husband suddenly died, and the poor, disabled woman had to leave the flat and move into a furnished room. The sending of herbs and medications from Austria to East Germany is prohibited. Therefore, I had to send her the herb mixture from a border town in Bavaria every second month. Soon, I received encouraging letters. She took one tablespoon of Swedish Bitters in a small amount of water and drank half before and half after a meal. She did this three times a day. Slowly, the deformations receded, and she could move her joints slightly. We prayed, she in Leipzig, we in Austria. After nine months, this woman, who had been tied to a wheelchair for 15 years, could leave her flat for the first time. Slowly, she improved and could soon do her daily work, which people had helped her with.

In the summer, we often went swimming in a lake. One day, the large piece of wood used to sit on was leaning against a fence. I had my bag next to it and bent over to gather some things, but I suddenly felt a terrific blow on my leg. The large timber had fallen over and struck me right on the leg. In no time, from the knee downward, it was dark blue to purple, and two large swellings, about the size of a fist, appeared. I was carried to the car and then up to my room. My husband wanted to send it to the doctor, but I asked him to apply Swedish Bitters to compress my leg. Half an hour later, I could walk down the stairs to the dining room without help. The next day, my leg was smooth. There were no more swellings, and the discolouration cleared up as well.

Another accident happened near this lake. A 4-year-old girl was stung by a hornet, and her arm swelled up. I fetched Swedish Bitters, and before the parents had clothed the girl, I was ready with the compress and applied it while the girl was carried to the car. On arrival at the car, about 3 minutes later, the swelling had subsided, and the doctor was no longer necessary.

While gathering raspberries, I was stung by a poisonous insect on my thumb. Overnight, the thumb swelled up, and while shopping, a woman said to me, "You had better go directly to the hospital; such an infection could cause your death." Overnight, I applied Swedish Bitters as a compress, and the next day, my thumb was back to standard size.

One time, I had an accident in the laundry. It was at the time when washing machines washed but did not rinse. The heavily entangled pieces had to be lifted from the hot water with wooden tongs. I tend to do everything quickly and with great energy. The tongs slipped and hit me in the eye. Stunned with pain and half blind, I walked upstairs. As soon as I applied Swedish Bitters, the pain eased. A little while later, I looked in the mirror and saw I had a black eye. I was back in the laundry a quarter of an hour later with a piece of cotton wool moistened with Swedish Bitters covering the eye, a small piece of plastic over it and the whole lot tied up with a folded scarf. I applied these compresses overnight for a few days so nothing could develop behind the eye.

As I do every year, I was taking a cure in Kneipp Spa in Muhllachken when the head nurse came into my room with a woman doubled up with pain. She suffered from gallbladder attacks, and the doctor had advised her to have an operation. I applied Swedish Bitters as a compress on the area of the gall bladder (first, calendula ointment or lard has to be used. Otherwise, the alcohol would dry out the skin, then a piece of cotton wool is moistened with Swedish Bitters and applied to the painful area, and a piece of dry cotton wool and plastic is put over it to keep it warm. (everything is now bandaged with a piece of cloth). I was just about to pull up her girdle when she sat up with a cry: the pain is gone!' she continued to apply the compresses, and she took the Swedish Bitters as drops, internally, three times a day, one teaspoonful in a bit of water or tea and the attacks never reoccurred.

For years, I looked after a woman who was all alone. Communication with her was somewhat tricky since she was hard of hearing. The Old Manuscript says: "They bring back lost hearing." Therefore, she had to moisten the acoustic duct frequently with Swedish Bitters. The index finger is moistened with Swedish Bitters and put into the ear. Do not forget to drop oil into the ear to avoid itching occasionally. At the same time, this woman moistened her temples, forehead, and the area around her eyes. Now we can communicate normally, and her face looks much fresher. One day, as she was getting off the bus, a car knocked her down, and she fell on her face. Again, Swedish Bitters helped her blue-red face bring back its standard colour.

On February 1st, she celebrated her 89th birthday. How often have people who came to my talks told me they could hear again and packed away their hearing aids thanks to Swedish Bitters? These drops relieve pain internally or externally, anywhere in the body, because they increase the blood supply to the affected area.

Therefore, it is appropriate to apply Swedish Bitters as a compress to the back of the head of people who suffer from epileptic fits. The cause of these attacks often lies back in the past, maybe a fall on the head or a shock in childhood.

During a talk I gave, a man came up to me and told me that he had received a double fracture at the base of the scull in a terrible car accident.

After this had healed, he started to get several people with epilepsy fits a day. I recommended Swedish Bitters applied as a compress to the back of the head and four cups of stinging nettle tea, to which two tablespoons of Swedish Bitters were added daily. Stinging nettle tea is necessary for severe epileptic fits. Several months later, he passed by my house to tell me that the fits had stopped.

Meningitis, head injuries caused by a fall or blow, stuttering, and speech disorders are effectively treated with Swedish Bitters applied as a compress to the book of the head. These compresses are also beneficial for bursitis. Again, I must emphasise that a doctor must be consulted first for all severe illnesses!

From the many letters I have received, I have learnt that Swedish Bitters applied as a compress to the eyes has been effective in detached and porous retina cases. All these people were going blind. These compresses are applied to the closed eye for an hour. Healthy eyes, especially if strained, can profit, too, if Swedish Bitters are brushed with the index finger along the lid to the corner of the eye. This way, good eyesight can be enjoyed well into old age.

Since Swedish Bitters are such an excellent remedy, no medicine chest in the house should be without it. Poured into small bottles, it can be taken along on trips. Often away from home, the food is disappointing, and the need arises to stimulate digestion to shake off weariness and tiredness. In these cases, Swedish Bitters are a true 'elixir'. A sip watered down is taken internally and externally, and some drops are brushed on the temples, forehead, eyes, and the area behind the ears. In no time, the beneficial effect is felt.

For a cold, with all its accompanying symptoms such as weariness, tiredness, pressure in the head and heaviness in the stomach, a cotton ball is moistened with Swedish Bitters and held under the nose while breathing deeply. Immediately, the head will feel lighter. If a cold has already affected the bronchial tubes, the moistened cotton ball is held in front of the open mouth and breathing is done with the mouth. Here, too, relief will be felt. During influenza, one teaspoon, sometimes one tablespoon, diluted with a bit of water, is taken daily. In this way, one is protected from the flu. Wherever there is pain, Swedish Bitters are always beneficial, taken internally as drops, applied as a compress or used as a rub or a massage.

Several years ago, I suffered from the renal couch. The doctor came in the middle of his surgery hours. In the meantime, I applied Swedish Bitters as a compress on the kidney region, and when the doctor arrived, the pain had subsided. I was pretty shame-faced because I had wasted his valuable time. He wanted to know why the pain had subsided so quickly. When he heard that I had applied a compress, he said: excellent, I do not have to give you an injection!" Swedish Bitters had his approval. Whenever I came to his surgery, he would say, "I will not prescribe you anything; you have Swedish Bitters." He had brought me closer to herbs.

An elderly lady came to see me. For years, she could only walk with a stick since arthritis had crippled her. Nothing helped, and she could not take it any longer. One teaspoon of Swedish Bitters in stinging nettle and horsetail tea, taken three times a day, made a difference. Three weeks later, I heard she could walk without a stick.
A member of our small church choir injured her knee while ice skating. Since it was a small choir, she was severely missed. After church, I met her in town. She couldn't mount the steep staircase up to the choir. A few moments later, I was at her place with the things required for a compress. As a doctor's wife, she looked sceptically at my doings. This changed when he could bandage her knee a few minutes later. The next day, she was able to mount the staircase.

But unfortunately, another member was missing due to a sprained ankle acquired while enjoying our so healthy winter sports. We knew that she was already at the casualty ward. The lady who had a stiff knee only the day before asked me to put the compress on the sprained ankle. I was reluctant to do it because the woman had been treated at the hospital. But thinking I might find myself singing alone, I changed my mind. I saw her lying on the couch with a very swollen, painful ankle. In the hospital, she was told to keep her foot raised. Swedish Bitters applied as a compress brought her immediately some relief. Although the roads were icy the next day, she came to the choir. She was without pain, and her ankle was normal.

One day, I saw a man obviously in pain in a restaurant. I got my Swedish Bitters and gave him a tablespoonful of lukewarm water. Colour returned to his face, and he could not believe it when the pain subsided. Six months later, I came back to the same place. I had already forgotten the incident when a gentleman thanked me profusely. He looked years younger. With the help of Swedish Bitters, he had lost all complaints that acute gastritis and disorder of the pancreas had caused him.

Since Swedish Bitters clear up pancreas disorders, they are most beneficial for diabetes. Warts, liver spots, corns, moles, haemorrhoids, birthmarks, and seborrhoea will disappear if they are repeatedly moistened with Swedish Bitters. A piece of cotton wool moistened with Swedish Bitters, put in the ear, will clear up buzzing and ringing. Moistening the base of the scalp will strengthen memory.

Swedish Bitters cleanse the blood, improve circulation, and dispel flatulence, headaches, indigestion, stomach, gallbladder, liver and kidney disorders (even if alcohol is not allowed). For phlebitis and thrombosis, calendula ointment is smeared thickly on the affected areas, and Swedish Bitters are applied as a compress.

When healed. Stinging nettle foot baths are taken to improve circulation. These drops stimulate a sluggish intestine and dispel dizziness and lameness. For all illnesses, they are most beneficial, even for cancer. For acute pain attacks, one tablespoon is taken in water or tea. If one teaspoonful of a bit of water is taken three times daily, morning, noon and evening, good health is kept till old age. Swedish Bitters awakens vitality and strengthens the life force needed in our time.

Preserve your health, strength, and joy for your family, work, and fellowmen through Swedish Bitters.

During a visit to a farm, I heard that the 12-year-old son of the farmer was to have an operation. Pus had formed behind the ear drum due to an inflammation. I was against the operation since sometimes, in similar cases, deafness occurs. A small piece of cotton wool moistened with Swedish Bitters was put in the boy's ear. A lot of pus was discharged daily, the pain subsided, and an operation was not necessary.

For intestinal cancer - it was a young mother of five, and the doctor had given her only a few more days - I recommended compresses applied to the area of the intestines, at the same time, calamus roots, which are steeped in cold water overnight (1 level teaspoon per cup of water); 1 sip before and after each meal, and a tea made from equal proportions of stinging nettle, calendula and yarrow. At least 2 litres of this tea has to be sipped throughout the day. This woman is so much better today that there is hope of a complete recovery.

A woman from Heilbronn, west Germany, wrote: about ten months ago, my 41-year-old nephew who lives in Sacramento, California, wrote in his letter that he suffers from bleeding of the colon daily and the medical diagnosis is, without a doubt, cancer of the colon. A side opening would be necessary. I sent him your book, "Health through God's pharmacy", Swedish Bitters, calamus roots, calendula, yarrow, and stinging nettle. He followed the instructions in your book. Today, my nephew can work again. After taking the mentioned herbs for four days, the bleeding stopped. Tiredness and weight loss were arrested slowly.

A 52-year-old man treated for ten years for cardiac asthma had to take b tablets daily. For years, he could only sleep sitting up, and for every step he took, he had to throw up his arms to get some air. I thought that this was caused not by the heart but by the liver. I applied Swedish Bitters as a compress to the area of the liver. He had to drink.

One cup of everyday club moss tea and a teaspoon of Swedish Bitters were added daily in the morning and some in the evening. How right I was shown when he could sleep lying down the first night. Swedish Bitters and everyday club moss tea brought about a swift and sound improvement. Three days later, he, who had not stepped out of his house for years, could walk around his little garden twice daily. Slowly, he is recovering.

A wound that would not heal after an operation closed overnight after the patient took a large sip of Swedish Bitters. This single sip caused the wound to close, which had been open for three years and had to be dressed several times a day.

A lady from Burgenland, Austria, told me that her 23-year-old niece had an auditory defect since birth. She was told that an operation in her case would be without success. This lady then asked her niece to try Swedish Bitters. They were shocked when, 14 days later, the niece could hear typically. My dear readers, I do not want to withhold a letter from Graz, Styria: "By chance or maybe providence, I talked with a 74-year-old man on the bus. This man got back his hearing, which he had lost during the war when receiving head and brain injuries. Only three times had he put a piece of cotton wool moistened with Swedish Bitters in his ears." (letters provide the proof of such accounts.)

A gentleman from Bavaria reports: "Through an accident, I injured my right arm. Swedish Bitters soon alleviated the terrible pain. After almost ten years of deafness in one ear, I could hear the ticking of the alarm clock again. Only once did I put Swedish Bitters into my ear." How many deaf people could be helped this way, even if only one could regain his hearing?

After a talk I gave, I learned from a listener that, for two years, she suffered from a weak anus muscle. The doctor said it was irreparable. Swedish Bitters, together with shepherd's purse, finely cut, macerated in rye whisky or vodka, are kept in place for ten days, heal muscular atrophy and severe muscular disorders; four cups of lady's mantle tea and six sips of calamus root tea, a day remedied it.

In a telephone call from Vienna, I heard a female voice say: thank you so much for Swedish Bitters.' when I was 12 years old, during a school hike in the mountains, this woman was inadvertently hit in the face by the girl in front of her with her climbing boot. Hence, for 40 years, off and on, she suffered from a festering jaw and had undergone 16 operations and several punctures. She had to break off her studies, was unable to take the profession she wanted and was plagued by continuous pain. She looked after a household. When 52 years old, she read about Swedish Bitters, applied it as a compress on the jaw area and was freed from all pain.
