Lymph Node Nucleus-A Disease Once Treated by Touch

Lymph node nucleus is caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis infecting lymph nodes. It is called [scrofula] in traditional Chinese medicine and [mouse sore] in folk. Although it is not fatal, it affects [face] very much, because the most common onset sites of lymph node nucleus are mainly lymph nodes in neck, clavicle, armpit and groin.

The invaded lymph nodes are usually swollen, up to the size of pigeon eggs or even eggs, like beads planted under the skin. Then the lump will penetrate the skin, forming ulcers and several fistulas, and yellowish-white pus mixed with cheese residue will flow out from time to time. Finally, the local skin will become ferocious scars and bumpy hyperplasia.

European Kings’ Ancestral Secret Recipe-Touch

Lymph node nucleus was once called “king’s disease” because many years ago people thought that patients could be cured by the king’s touch.

From the 5th century to the 18th century, many European countries used the king’s touch as the standard therapy for lymph node nucleus, and even held grand “touch treatment” ceremonies every year. According to historical records, Philip VI of France touched as many as 1,500 patients in one ceremony, while Charles II of England touched 92,102 patients with lymph node nucleus in his life.

The founder of Touzhi was Crowe I, the founder of Frankish Kingdom. One of his favorites suffered from lymph node nucleus. Crowe found many doctors to treat the minister but failed to cure him.

As luck would have it, The Queen of Clovis was a devout Catholic, Shortly after he converted to Catholicism under the influence of the Queen, he had a dream in which the angel told him that to cure the minister’s illness, it was only necessary [to touch the minister’s focus with his sacred hand]. Crowe I immediately put it into practice and the minister’s lymph node nucleus miraculously recovered.

In this way, Crowe told the people that he would hold regular king touch ceremonies to exercise divine power and relieve the pain of lymphatic tuberculosis patients. Since then, he has started the history of “touching lymph node nuclei” and later generations have followed suit.

By the 11th century, the king of England claimed that he had mastered this magical skill and began to hold [touch treatment] ceremonies. The scope of treatment was no longer limited to lymph node nuclei, and people believed in the curative effect.

Of course, there are also doubters. In 1688, William III succeeded to the throne of England. He thought [touch governance] was extremely absurd and decided to terminate the touch ceremony. Unexpectedly, when the news came out, not only patients protested, but also politicians crusaded.

Under pressure, William III had to hold a grand ceremony. The patients were taken turns to kneel in front of him. He gently stroked the patient’s cheeks with both hands, then took the white ribbon with gold coins from the priest’s hand and hung it around the patient’s neck. He said to the patient, “May God bring you health and more reason.” According to records, five patients [showed obvious signs of improvement] that day.

What is even more incredible is that In the 16th century, King Charles II of England, who fled to Holland after failing to invade Scotland, During his exile, Still often surrounded by patients who require [touch treatment]. On one occasion, With too many patients, His physician, Richard Weissman, also known as the “father of British surgery”, wrote in one of his papers about the stampede, which killed six people: “He (Charles II) has cured (lymph node nucleus) more in any year than all our surgeons in London have cured in a lifetime.”

Can touch really cure lymph node nucleus?

So, the question arises, can the king’s touch really cure lymph node nucleus? Better than surgery?

In fact, some patients can heal themselves.

First, let’s start with the characteristics of lymph node nucleus.

Tuberculosis, caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection, is a chronic infectious disease and is closely related to immune status.

The so-called “chronic infectious disease” refers to the fact that it can go through months to decades from the infection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis to the onset of the disease, and it takes at least half a year from the onset to the cure. Before there is no anti-tuberculosis drug, lymph node nucleus will even accompany the patient repeatedly for a lifetime.

In fact, after human infection with Mycobacterium tuberculosis, there is only a 5%-10% chance of developing into tuberculosis patients in his life. Before the onset of the disease, there is no difference with healthy people. After the onset of the disease, the type and degree of the disease are also closely related to the immune state of the body. Even without any treatment, the self-healing rate of tuberculosis can reach 15-30%.

Seeing this, you may suddenly realize: Yes, even without the king’s touch, about 20% of lymph node nucleus patients can heal themselves.

The placebo effect of touch

People who believe that touching effectively will usually feel happy physically and mentally after being touched, and will no longer worry about the disease. Naturally, it will enhance the immune system and may be able to promote the recovery of the disease. However, patients with lymph node nucleus who have not received anti-tuberculosis treatment often suffer from persistent or spread lesions after undergoing surgery.

Therefore, it is not surprising that the self-healing rate of patients touched by the king is higher than the success rate of surgical treatment.

In fact, this is often called the “placebo effect”. Although patients receive ineffective treatment, their symptoms are usually relieved due to [expectation] or [belief] that the treatment is effective. The healer believes that the treatment is effective, and the patient believes in the healer, which together produces magical effects.

Tuberculosis Needs Regular Drug Treatment

Since 1944, when the first anti-tuberculosis drug streptomycin was invented, the treatment of tuberculosis has entered a new era. The most effective method for the treatment of lymph node nucleus is [systemic anti-tuberculosis treatment] realized by drugs. Surgery can only be used as an auxiliary means.

As mentioned earlier, not only lymph node nucleus, the most effective way for all tuberculosis is [early, standardized, regular and full-course] anti-tuberculosis treatment. The eight words in quotation marks, to put it bluntly:

1. Use drugs as early as you can (if necessary, if it is [open tuberculosis], it will be contagious);

2. Medication under the guidance of doctors;

3. Be sure to take medicine on time and don’t miss it.

4. Eat enough course of treatment and don’t stop eating as soon as your symptoms improve.

Because the side effects of anti-tuberculosis drugs are relatively large, patients often feel uncomfortable when taking them. It is indeed difficult to stick to them, but the cure rate can usually reach more than 90% when sticking to them. What’s more, human beings have not found other simpler and more effective anti-tuberculosis methods.

At present, many traditional Chinese medicine practitioners claim to be able to treat tuberculosis. The author also often encounters many patients who are tricked into stopping anti-tuberculosis drugs, which costs a lot of money, but eventually becomes [drug-resistant patients]. The treatment required in the future will be more difficult, costly and have a longer course of treatment.

Therefore, if anyone says that there is an ancestral secret recipe that can cure tuberculosis, after reading this article, you can [ha ha].
