If you have headache, migraine or stress, a cocktail of hot milk and a raw egg is very useful. As milk and eggs are rich of calcium, a little calcium from the cocktail in the spinal cord is enough to calm the nervous system and to remove the increased excitability. This is particularly good for children as they are much more emotional than adults. If your child is irritable and nervous, if it often bites its nails, give it more milk, eggs, liver, kidneys, oat flakes, barley, walnuts, sprouting seeds, cabbage, beetroot, cucumbers and dandelion leaves. These foods are rich of calcium. If your child or you have white spots on your nails that means that you lack calcium.

Therefore doctors advise people with swelling to drink 700 ml of milk for two days (100 ml seven times a day) and 100 ml of fruit juice or rosehip tea; before going to bed drink 100 ml of 200% glucose. After two days you should add 100 g of milk porridge with butter, mashed potatoes and one egg. After two more days add an omelette with two eggs and curds (cottage cheese) and meat soufflé. Gradually you can make your diet more varied and include white bread, meat or fish balls, cottage cheese, fruit and vegetables. Thus the body is freed of a big quantity of water and the heart function is improved.
