PHLEBITIS is inflammation of vein walls, most commonly occurring in the legs. This is a fat and protein deficiency most often resulting from the inability to digest or assimilate or utilize cooked fat and cooked proteins. In many cases oral (birth control pills) and injected contraceptives cause phlebitis. Many cases are results of sulfa drugs or other medications taken to reduce water retention, and aluminum poisoning (see Edema, page 260).
Symptoms: swollen and reddened veins, increased pulse rate, slight fever, and pain.
Consuming plenty of raw meat, including raw fish with raw milk, no-salt-added unheated cheese with an equal quantity of raw fat strengthens the veins. Pain can be minimized by eating the honey/butter mixture or raw milk blended with bee pollen. If feeling nervous, drinking a raw fertile egg by itself is calming.
