A pouch or sac without an opening, having a distinct membrane enclosure, and containing fluid or semi-fluid morbid matter. This usually develops within an organ or a body cavity. [SNH p.14]


Calcium tablets are almost always prescribed for muscle cramps and throughout pregnancy generally, yet calcium requires the proper balance of phosphorus, silica and magnesium to be absorbed. Otherwise the free-radical calcium flows through the bloodstream, sometimes depositing in the forms of cysts and calcium deposits. [EWH p.48]

The body needs plenty of potassium chloride to keep the fibrin in solution and build muscles and tissue where needed instead of coagulating and forming fibrin cysts or tumors under the skin, in various organs, or in other words where we don’t want them. [NL 1-1]

Herbal Aids:

Black Walnut Tincture: Dr. Christopher’s Black Walnut Tincture:  In breaking up a cyst, the use of walnut herbs (leaves, bark, or the green hull or dried pulp around the shell of the nut) are excellent. The use of chaparral may be used internally or externally. [SNH p.14]

Useful herbs: Apple cider vinegar, Brigham tea, burdock root, cayenne, chaparral, honey, mullein, plantain, sarsaparilla, yellow dock (ovarian or genital areas). [SNH p.14]

V.B.: Dr. Christopher’s Vaginal and Rectal Herbal Bolus:  One of the valuable procedures in the healing program for a woman is the vaginal bolus. The bolus is inserted into the rectal area. There are two types of bolus: one that dissolves at body temperature and the other acts as a poultice. The poultice-type is made with healing herbs to help draw the poisons and toxins; and to help break loose cysts, tumors, and cancerous conditions even as far up as the abdominal area as the bolus has a widespread influence, effecting not only the vagina, but also other organs, such as the bowel and the urinary tract. This drawing-type bolus generally consists of a group of herbs. [SNH p.503]

Dr. John R. Christophers “Extended Herbal Cleanse” Routine:  This cleansing program is for the purpose of helping to purify the human body for healing. …Clean the mucus out of the body, which is the problem source that develops polyps, tumors, cysts, etc. This is an entire program. More can be read at the source. [SNH p.514]

Castor Oil Fomentation: In order to get rid of hardened mucus in the body, which may appear as cysts, tumors or polyps, the following fomentation is to be used. [SNH p.525]

V.B.: Dr. Christopher’s Vaginal and Rectal Herbal Bolus:  Here is another excellent aid for the woman (or rectal bolus for the man) who have problems in the reproductive areas. Boluses are made with healing herbs that help (1) draw out the toxins and poisons, (2) aid (with herbal foods) in making the malfunctioning area healthy, so that cysts, tumors, and cancerous conditions will not have waste material to survive on or live in, because they are all scavengers. Herbalists have found that they will release and will be dispersed. Herbalists have found that some will come out through the orifices and others disperse into the blood stream and will be eliminated if the program is followed faithfully. (3) The bolus spreads its herbal influences widely from the vagina or bowel through the entire urinary and genital organs. The formula consists of one part each: squaw vine herbs, slippery elm bark, yellow dock root, comfrey root, marshmallow root, chickweed herb, golden seal root, mullein leaves. These herbs are all in powder form. Coconut butter should be melted down so that it will mix well with the herb powder. Mix a small quantity of this powder, and wet to pie dough consistency with coconut butter (which can be purchased from the drug store, health food store, or herb shop). Next, roll this mass between hands until you have a pencil-like bolus approximately the size of the middle finger and about inch-long pieces. Harden in a refrigerator. Then these are to be inserted into the vagina much the same as suppositories would be. It will be necessary to wear a sanitary napkin in order to hold the bolus up in the vagina (or rectum). Insert upon retiring and leave in all night, six nights a week. The coconut butter melts at body temperature, leaving only the herbs, and these are easy to douche out. [HHH p.191] The following morning use the Dr. Christopher Slant Board Combination: (Yellow Dock Combination) As an aid in prolapsed uterus, bowel, or other organs, to assist in giving relief, make concentrated tea (simmer down to half its amount) of six parts oak bark, three parts mullein herb, four parts yellow dock root, three parts walnut bark or leaves, six parts comfrey root, one part lobelia, three parts marshmallow root. Inject with a syringe (while head down on slant board) into vagina, 1/4 to 1/2 cup or more; or rectum, one cup or more; for prolapsus or hemorrhoid problems and leave in as long as is possible before voiding. Dose suggested is one fourth to one cup, one or more times in a day, and drink one fourth cup in three fourths cup of distilled water three times a day. When the tea is injected into the abdominal area and while on the slant board, knead and massage the pelvic and abdominal area to exercise the muscles, so the herbal tea (food) will be assimilated into the organs. [HHH p.192]

Potassium Deficiency: Hundreds of women have wondered why they have tumors and cysts in their bodies. The cause, according to Dr. Christopher, is potassium deficiency. When a patient takes plenty of potassium foods (not supplements) you can remove the cause of the cysts and tumors. Other foods, which are lower in potassium, must not be increased when you are trying to increase the potassium in the system. When patients go on the three-day cleanse and mucusless diet and take the female corrective formulas [Female Reproductive], they receive nourishment which is high in potassium. Miraculous things happen to them. For even faster results, you can add to each cup of herb tea six to ten drops of elderberry tincture or six to ten drops of black walnut tincture, both of which are extremely high in potassium. Cysts and tumors are like leeches, but they stay in places where there is a body deficiency. As soon as the body is balanced and well, the cysts and tumors have to go, because the material is too healthy for them to live on.

This is why so many patients brought Dr. Christopher cysts and tumors in various sizes that they had expelled from their bodies. There is not enough food, in the form of dying or deficient body materials, so they just decide to leave.

There are several ways to receive your potassium. Dr. Bernard Jensen sells a potassium broth made from dehydrated vegetables. Dr. Bronner makes a similar, excellent product. You can also make your own potassium broth by simmering equal parts of red potatoes, celery, carrots, onions, and herbs to taste. Raw vegetable and fruit juices also flood the system with potassium.

When cysts or tumors grow in places where they can be seen outside the body, often we react by having them cut out. This defeats healing by working on the effect instead of the cause. You can cut cysts out, tumors off, and burn warts off (which are also a potassium deficiency), or get rid of as many moles as you wish, but unless you go to the cause, they will grow back again, and you may end up with as many or more cysts, tumors, moles as before. Different signs of potassium deficiency will keep popping out on the body because the condition that needs correcting is on the inside. You have to go into the cause, Dr. Christopher always insisted, which is the way we have been eating. Other herbs used for cysts are corn silk, apple cider vinegar, wormwood, cramp bark, camomile, gravel root, slippery elm, wild carrot, and garlic. [EWH p.125]

Cleaning the Blood Stream: The blood of each individual is as different from that of another individual as is the iris of the eye or the fingerprint. As we build our lives for better or worse, so do we change and build our blood stream.

For many years we have taught that all disease stems from the blood stream. …The impurities and poisonous waste accumulations in a boil are brought to that point by a blood stream loaded with waste and mucus materials, and to work only on lancing the boil is a case of “working on the effect”, when one should clean up the blood stream, i.e., “work on the cause”.

The same principle applies with tumors, cysts, dermatitis, cancer and most other isolated malfunctions. The weakened or injured areas accumulate toxic waste, because there is not enough vitality to discard this low vibrating material, and here we have evidence of “disease”.

Instead of using just an external application, we have recommended to our patients that they also do the most important part of the entire program – that of going into the cause by cleaning up the bowels, the blood stream, and keeping this “cleaning condition” permanent. This is done by following the mucusless diet, as we explain it in “Dr. John R. Christophers “Three Day Cleansing Program” and Dr. John R. Christophers “Mucusless Diet”” booklet, using the three day cleanse each month, or more often, and by strictly following the recommended “fast” each seventh day. (Of course, on the fast, use only steam distilled water in abundance.) [This information goes on extensively. Go to the source for more detail.] [NL 1-2]

Dr. John R. Christophers “Three Day Cleansing Program” with Dr. Christopher’s Slant Board Routine (V.B.: Dr. Christopher’s Vaginal and Rectal Herbal Bolus and Yellow Dock Combination: Dr. Christopher’s Yellow Dock Combination):  With severe gynecological problems involving infection, cysts, tumors, the herpes simplex, prolapsed transverse colon, tipped uterus, swollen glands under arms and on breast, yeast infection, etc., the vaginal and rectal bolus may be employed. We suggest using the slant board routine as explained in the booklet Three Day Cleanse and Mucusless Diet. [NL 1-3]

Malnutrition: We have on file hundreds of letters from women who have received relief by this simple procedure of feeding the areas of the body suffering malnutrition.
By having a weakened reproductive system many things can happen to the body in retaliation. This is caused from weakened tissue inviting disease, cysts, tumors, etc., into the body. These are scavengers and must have toxic, low type cells and tissue, weak and dying organs to feed on. All this is the result of malnutrition! We must reverse the condition, strengthen the cells and tissues, making them so healthy they are to “rich” for scavenger diseases to live on. Herpes simplex, yeast infection, leucorrhea, flooding, cramps, swollen and painful breasts, miscarriages, inability to conceive, etc., etc., stem from the reproductive organs or systems being in an unhealthy condition. [NL 1-7]

Blood Stream Formula: Dr. Christopher’s Blood Purifying Formula and Mullein & Lobelia: Dr. Christopher’s Glandular Fromula: When there is any problem with the breast, and this should be noticed early, we use the fomentation of 3 parts mullein and one part lobelia over the affected area. It may be taken internally as well. Many Indian tribes have historically used a fomentation of poke root externally to help draw out the cancer. As with all cancers, they begin in the blood stream and radiate out to other parts of the body where they are manifested. The Blood Stream Formula can be used to purify the bloodstream, the nutrient transport system of the body. Cysts and tumors will not grow in an atmosphere where there is enough potassium. Elderberry tincture can be taken for potassium increase along with foods that are high in potassium. [NL 4-2]


Woman Heals Tumors and Cysts: When Dr. Christopher was traveling, using chiropractic offices and naturopath’s offices, diagnosing, reading eyes, and helping with herbs, [a] lady … came to see him. In addition to the prolapsed transverse colon infecting the entire reproductive system, it had impinged on the bladder, so that whenever she laughed, sneezed, or coughed, she would void her urine, a very embarrassing problem. In addition, one of her breasts was so infected that the doctors were urging her to have it removed.

Dr. Christopher told her he could give her advice as to what to do, but that he was traveling and wouldn’t be able to guide her or see her for several months. She agreed to follow his instructions, and asked to see him when he returned.

He put her on the full program. She was to clear the bowel with the lower bowel formula [Lower Bowel], to clean the bloodstream using the Blood Stream Formula, and to rebuild the reproductive organs with the female corrective [Female Reproductive] and the hormone-estrogen formula.[Hormonal Changease] She was to continue the whole program, six days a week.

When he returned to that city six months later, she had called and prearranged an appointment. She bounced in, looking years younger, all smiles. She said her urine loss was under control now, with no unwanted voiding. She had no pains in the ovaries; in fact, she had dropped some stones from the three-day cleanse. She had also passed some tumors, one almost the size of a grapefruit, and cysts as well. When she went to the family doctor for an examination, he was astounded, because her body was rebuilding itself. The breast they were going to cut off had healed itself, with no more infection. She felt that it was a new world, and that life was worth living again.

Although she healed rapidly and consistently, Dr. Christopher pointed out that herbs don’t work all at once, but you have to apply yourself and be patient to wait for the results of your hard work. [EWH p.113]
