Howdy Folks!dbh002.jpg (75783 bytes)

If you're a long-time reader of this here newsletter, then you know how last year I was kicked into the fourteenth century by my horse, Buster. Well, this year, Buster has turned three, I've regained my youthful figure, and we're out riding and enjoying the summer. 

We've got some new pictures in our Nature Photos and a little pictorial piece called A Visit to the Minnesota State Fair. 

Now for some real news: This newsletter contains the most important article you will read this year. It's called: The Lost History of Medicine. In it you will learn about years of research that has been ignored by the business of medicine for over a hundred years. You will also learn the true definition of disease. 

We have new pictures at Online Friends! And, sadly, we've lost some good friends recently too. Stop by and say a prayer for their families. And speaking of prayers, we have some more requests at our Prayer List

Since I've been so busy with research, I've not gotten out to take pictures like I did last year, but we did get enough shots to add to our Nature Photos. And I finally put together a pictorial on the Minnesota State Fair that a few people have sent me kind remarks on so far. It takes a long time to load if you connect by phone lines.  

And I thank everyone for their support. Many have joined Shop4Zero and we got a few more orders for our book. Just sit back and read on. I'm sure you're going to like this one.

Senate Bill 722 - The Beginning of the End!

Your Supplements Are In Danger

A bill is being introduced in the US Senate called the Dietary Supplement "Safety" Act. If passed, this act will expand FDA authority, limit freedoms, and allow the FDA to pull hundreds of products from the market based on a single adverse effect report. 

IF THIS SAME RULE WAS APPLIED TO ASPIRIN, IT WOULD BE TAKEN OFF THE MARKET.

IF THESE SAME RULES WERE APPLIED TO ALL DRUGS, THERE WOULD BE NONE ON THE MARKET.

The bill might be voted on soon, or there may be attempts to attach it to others and push it through the back door.

We all need to act immediately to help avoid this significant threat!  Please do the following: 

You can find your senators' addresses in the "government" information section of the phone book white pages OR look here: http://www.webslingerz.com/jhoffman/congress-email.html. If each letter is deemed to represent 1500 constituents, imagine the impact we could collectively make!

Send something to your representatives too, because every bill has to go through there too! And finally, tell Senator Durbin (dick@durbin.senate.gov) that his bill will not save any lives. Tell him you know who he's supporting in this matter (the Pharmaceutical Interests) and that if these same rules were applied to drugs, we'd be a drug free nation! 

Our supplements are under attack!

THIS IS HAPPENING ALL OVER THE WORLD. IN GERMANY YOU NEED A PRESCRIPTION FOR VITAMIN C. IN CANADA YOU CANNOT GET CoQ10 WITHOUT A PRESCRIPTION. DO NOT LET IT HAPPEN HERE!

 

Letters
The following are some letters from our readers, and our answers.

David,
I love your site and newsletter. Thank you for all the hard work!

I wanted to do some research on Anvirzel on my own, and I came across the patent information on it. The thing that bothers me is that, for me, Anvirzel would only give me a little over a 30% chance of long term survival. This doesn't seem such a good prospect.

Nope, it isn't good, but that's because you've had chemo and radiation already. 

Sadly, cancer scares the b'geesus out of us and we immediately reach for the big guns: chemo, radiation, surgery. If we were to take our time and really think about this, we'd probably opt for something a little more friendly to our bodies as our first choice (leaving the more dangerous choices as our last resort). 

I found that same site and discovered that Anvirzel has an overall 73% chance (in the studies they did in Turkey using their folk remedy) of long term survival if the patient uses it first. Once you've done chemo or radiation and discovered that they did not work, then you have two things to battle in order to recover: the cancer and the therapy. The chemo and radiation have done your immune system in and have totally acidified your tissues. 

Now, the good news is this. If you detox your body of all that garbage (we can get away with calling it garbage since it didn't do you any good) and start to rebuild your terrain, you will increase your chances of long term survival whatever alternative route you choose. 

For a good detox, read Cleaning House. Then finish up your detox by bathing in the Miracle II soap.

I bought a copy of the Fat Flush Plan and was surprised to read that when it comes to exercise, less is better. I almost expected to see it in your newsletter. Why isn't it?

Well, it is hard to tell our readers everything (though we try). These newsletters are now taking over a month to compose (not leaving us with much time for anything else). 

However, I'm glad you got to that part of the book and I hope you will take it seriously. The man who wrote the Jogger's Bible died running a marathon, his arteries were completely blocked up. 

The problem with exercise is that it produces free radicals and lactic acid. If you are going to do some heavy exercise, then you have to take a megadose of antioxidants: vitamins C, A, E, beta carotene, and selenium. Don't forget your omega-3 fatty acids too, to cut down on the build up of lactic acid. Ann Gittleman points out in her book, The Fat Flush Plan that many Olympic athletes when tested have the worst arteries on the planet. The secret is to care for those arteries, and keep in mind what Gittleman says, "Less exercise is better." Just don't overdo it.

I will do some research and find you more on this by our next newsletter.

I would like to let you know about one of the most wonderful and yet unheard of pain relief's. It's base is that of Emu oil an ancient oil that the aborigines have used for centuries. I could tell you much about it as I have been using the products for years. The oil can also be used as a diffuser for essential oils. Because it is a transdermal carrier it goes farther into the tissue and promote faster relief and healing. Please check out this web site and it will give you all the information you may need to pass on to those in pain and need the quick relief. www.emumagic.com . Thank you!

Yes, I have heard of Emu Oil and we did mention it in our article Alternative Pain Therapies. However, since you are in the Minnesota Wellness Community, I shall pass this info on to our readers and hope that everyone visits your web site.

I heard about ginkgo for memory problems and wanted to buy some on the web, so I went to google and did a search. What I found was an article on the MSNBC site that said a recent study concluded that ginkgo does nothing for memory. What do you think?

I think the study was flawed. For one thing, it lasted only six weeks. In natural medicine, 90 days is the minimum time you want to try a regimen. 

JAMA reported on another study, conducted over a period of a year using patients with Alzheimer's disease, that showed that ginkgo not only stabilized many of the patients' cognitive abilities, many improved. ["Ginkgo for Memory Enhancement" The Journal of the American Medical Association 2002;288:835-840]

Again, anyone can prove anything they want to by designing a study to prove it. It's best to ask yourself, who's benefiting from this information. JAMA has nothing to gain by printing a study that shows an herb to be effective. So in these rare instances, I'd go with JAMA.

David,
Thank you so much for your Dressing Recipe in your last newsletter. It was not only the best dressing we've ever had in our house, we finally found something to do with all this flax seed oil we purchased nearly a year ago. When you wrote about flax oil, we thought we'd give it a try so we stocked up with five bottles. We kept them in the freezer. No matter how we tried it, using Budwig's recipe or yours, the stuff was just blechy tasting. We eventually ordered Omegasentials and make them a part of our breakfast and smoothies, but until your salad dressing recipe came along, we had no idea what we'd do with all that oil. Thank you so much. Do you have another recipe we can try?

I love to cook, but I cook like a bachelor (hardly any measuring; mostly by taste). So, here is a Bachelor's Meatless Chili Recipe.

First find some Maitake, Shitake, and ABM mushrooms. Grab a handful of them and soak in water and Celtic Sea Salt to re-hydrate them (you can break them into pieces first, if you want).

Take about a cup of refried black beans and thin it out so it is like gravy. Then add a can of diced tomatoes. Then add some onion, garlic, chili powder, Celtic Sea Salt. This is your basic mixture. You can spice it up with some cayenne pepper. And you can add some green, red, yellow, or orange peppers, or chop up some fresh celery or add some of my favorite, cilantro. It's all up to you from here on. 

Cook her up, remove from the heat, add the mushrooms and liquid to the mixture, and there you have it: Meatless Chili With Mushrooms. Make sure you get some vitamin C during the meal (I usually suck on an Acerola chewable) because it will help the absorption of the beta glucans in the mushrooms. 

This is a great meal when you feel a cold coming on, especially if you really go heavy on the garlic. 

P.S. Next time try the Dressing Recipe with a little cottage cheese mixed in with some yogurt. Mmmm.

David,
I love your newsletter and your book Bypassing Bypass. Your site has really changed my life. But something I don't get is your finance problems. You say that your book is selling great and yet you're terribly in debt. You know I've been a supporter of your work for a long time now, but how much exactly does it take to run a web site?

Good question! Ok, when I say the book is selling great, that's because I always look on the positive side of things. Considering the economy, the book is selling great. However, our projections (done by a volunteer from St Thomas College) for this edition were sales topping 5,000 in the first year. We've sold just around 1000 copies. And we won't show a profit till our seven thousandth copy.

Running this site is actually, very expensive. We purchase nearly every book we recommend. Most of the time, when we review a product, we purchase enough to truly test (and send it to people needing it). Then there are the journals and newsletters we subscribe to. Altogether, we spend between 3 and 5 thousand dollars a year doing research.  

Now...do you want to hear about the $20,000 printers and the $9,000 we have invested in computers? 

P.S. Thanx for your support. We can't make it without people like you!

Fat Flush Plan Update

UPDATE AS OF AUGUST 2, 2003: 

Many of you know my feelings on Cholesterol. It is not an enemy and there is no such thing as good or bad cholesterol. This is hype to sell drugs. How can bad cholesterol be bad WHEN IT IS TRYING TO SAVE YOUR LIFE.

In our research on cholesterol, we discovered the same things as Dr Ravnskov who wrote the book The Cholesterol Myths. Most of his book is online at this location: The Cholesterol Myths. In our book, Bypassing Bypass, we uncovered a few of cholesterol's purposes in the human body. For one thing, our brains are 90% cholesterol. This should be enough to explain the link between cholesterol lowering drugs and one very special side effect: psychosis. Though your doctor will tell you that the incidence of cholesterol lowering drugs related psychosis is extremely limited, in real life, it's not all that limited. Next, every cell in your body has a cell membrane with cholesterol in its makeup. It keeps water from penetrating our cells. Otherwise, when we hopped in the bath tub, we'd dissolve. In this newsletter, now that we're studying a group of toxins called mycotoxins, we've discovered another job of cholesterol: it gloms onto mycotoxins and protects us from the damage they cause. If your cholesterol is high, it is high for a reason. Lowering your cholesterol artificially does not fix the original reason. Cholesterol is high in people who have pitting in their arteries (see Bypassing Bypass) and it is high in people filled with mycotoxins. Additionally, at my age (over fifty) studies show that a cholesterol level of 200 to 240 is perfectly fine and generally preferred. 

But, for you who want to lower your cholesterol naturally, this fat flush plan is thedbh001.jpg (25129 bytes) trick. Why? for one reason, it pampers the liver and one of the liver's main job is metabolizing fats. This is also a candida diet. Nothing in this diet stimulates the growth of candida. And if you are doing other things (as I did on this diet by adding Grapefruit Seed Extract to my daily routine), then you are getting rid of the candida and candida's mycotoxins. 

To test this, I went to the VA for a checkup. Not only had I lost over 40 pounds in just over a month (and 21 inches now), I lowered my cholesterol and triglyceride levels. 

Previous to this fat flush, my cholesterol level was 219 and my triglycerides were 267.

My latest numbers are (after being on this fat flush plan for just a little over a month): 

Cholesterol: 143 
Triglycerides: 86

For some of you, this might just be the plan. I know it is for me; I feel twenty years younger.

The Lost History of Medicine

Sick and Tired?: Reclaim Your Inner TerrainOne of the best books ever to have been recommended to me is called Sick and Tired?: Reclaim Your Inner Terrain, by Dr Robert Young (no relationship to the actor) and his wife, Shelly. I recommend this book more than any other we’ve ever touched upon at this web site. And I’ll tell you why as I go along here.

 I’ve always had suspicions that, no matter what our research here has uncovered, there was still something missing. All too often we'd come across something that has no historical perspective. Take Roy Rife: his work came, it would seem, from nowhere, and after his research was destroyed, it went nowhere. Then there is Gaston Naessens. We’ve talked about his cure for cancer called 714X, but his work with somatids, again, had no apparent historical perspective. His discovery comes from nowhere, and goes nowhere as medicine refused to accept his theories, even though they are well documented with slides, movies, and even a multimedia show.

With the discovery of Sick and Tired, I finally discovered the missing link. Dr Young shows us a history that has been wiped out of our medical texts and wiped out for a good reason. If we were to acknowledge these lost discoveries, everything we know about medicine today would topple.

It is our intention to display for you objective scientific research that has been ignored, covered up, and abandoned by those who profit from your being ill.

Despite a system that treats symptoms only, kills 3 to 6 thousand people weekly, cures one thing only to cause another, conventional medicine is still very popular. Why? Because it is based upon religious tenets and not upon science. (See Modern Medicine: The New World Religion) And, as we'll mention once more in this newsletter, modern conventional medicine is popular because it works instantly; you take a pill, and the pain is gone. How much more wonderful could that be? 

The Germ Theory

Everyone has heard of Louis Pasteur. He is considered the father of the Germ Theory of Medicine and he invented the process of pasteurization. Despite the simple fact that the Germ Theory of Medicine was at least a hundred years older than Pasteur, his experiments that supposedly "proved" this theory have established him as a cornerstone in Modern Medical History.

There were many theories of disease during Pasteur's time. Basically, scientists were split into two camps. Those who felt disease came from the germ and those who felt that disease came from our terrain.  

Today, medicine still focuses on the germ, but even that might be changing since in our bodies are made up of more germs than human cells. We focus on this simple but amazing fact in this article: Those Little Guys Are Everywhere.

One question at this point is, is our immune system alone our terrain?

As Dr Young points out in Sick and Tired, the immune system’s function of fighting off germs is its secondary job. If you’re immune system is battling off bugs, you’re driving on a "spare tire," according to the good doctor.

The Terrain

What exactly is a healthy terrain?

Dr Young’s book introduced me to Antoine Béchamp. I looked him up on the web and read one of his books published there. Amazing stuff. You won’t find Béchamp’s name in the history of medicine. He and his work have been expurgated. When he died, his accomplishments were listed in a journal. They took up seven pages. Some of the things we attribute to Pasteur were actually accomplished by Béchamp.

Even though Béchamp was a scientist, his work is very easy to read. Scientists hadn’t yet developed their Latin/Greek lingo that would keep the average person on the sidelines looking in.

The first thing I read by him was a study on cats. One group was fed cooked foods and the other was fed raw foods. The raw foods group were much healthier than the group fed cooked foods. By the third generation, the young of the cooked foods group (also getting cooked foods) did not survive into adulthood.

Is there any wonder why the Cancer Diet is 70% live foods?

Now Béchamp was a critic of Pasteur’s. Pasteur hated Béchamp, mainly because Béchamp was constantly finding fault in Pasteur’s work. For instance, Pasteur’s experiments that "proved" his germ theory were less than scientific, according to Béchamp . Pasteur had injected healthy animals with the blood of a sick animal. The healthy animals got sick.

First off do I need to point out that we do not catch germs in this fashion? I mean, if I had to get an injection to catch a cold, I’d never catch one.

Secondly, there are too many variables in a syringe full of a sick animal’s blood to "prove" that the germs in the blood are making the experimental animal sick. Béchamp made the obvious observation that Pasteur was poisoning the blood of the experimental animal.

Claude Bernard was also a contemporary of Pasteur’s. On Pasteur’s deathbed, he admitted that Bernard was right and that he, Pasteur, was wrong (though he never mentioned his nemesis Béchamp).

Bernard is considered the Father of Experimental medicine today. He was a physiologist. However, his greatest achievements are entirely overlooked today. Let me give you one example of this man’s assertions.

Amidst a group of physicians and scientists, Claude Bernard made the statement: "The terrain is everything; the germ is nothing," and then drank down a glass of water filled with cholera.

There are not many scientists who are willing to risk their lives on a theory. This we know. Claude Bernard has few equals in the history of medicine.

Germs Do Not Cause Disease

The most telling "concept" that has ever crossed my desk is the quotation Dr Young uses right at the beginning of his book, Sick and Tired:

If I could live my life over again, I would devote it to proving that germs seek their natural habitat—diseased tissue—rather than being the cause of the diseased tissue; e.g., mosquitoes seek the stagnant water, but do not cause the pool to become stagnant. Rudolph Virchow (Father of Pathology)

Do you understand the importance of this? When I read this quotation for the first time, it hit me like a brick. I’ve always known the terrain was the key, but I had always thought of the terrain as the immune system. I had had no idea that the proper terrain alone was, by itself, enough for perfect health. Nor had it ever occurred to me that the immune system was merely a backup system that took over when the terrain failed. 

So, Béchamp was, in effect, telling Pasteur that his experiments proved nothing because it poisoned the experimental animal’s terrain, hence allowing the germs to attack the diseased tissues caused by the poisoning.

Before we go any further, we need to know this…

Take a banana and place it on a counter next to a piece of cheese. Place a glass over the cheese so it doesn't dry out too quickly. Now watch them both over the over the next few days. What do you think will happen? The banana starts to turn black and the cheese begins to mold. They go bad. They rot. 

Now slice open the cheese. Inside, no mold. Slice open the banana. It's rotten inside. Smell the banana and you'll smell a hint of alcohol. It's fermenting.

Something that perhaps only a few of you already knew is: The cheese molds from the outside in, but the banana rots from the inside out.

The banana was alive. The cheese is not alive. 

Every living thing comes equipped with it’s own janitorial service that goes to work when it dies. They are programmed to clean up the mess our dead bodies leave behind.

This is a VERY important concept for us to know and remember, always.

Healthy Terrain

So what is healthy terrain? Béchamp began to describe it nearly two hundred years ago, but Claude Bernard finally put it this way. It consists of two internal factors:

1. Alkalinity

2. Negative Electrical Charge

Contributing to a healthy terrain are two factors, according to Bernard:

1. Nutrition

2. Toxins

One must have proper nutrition and be free of toxins to maintain a healthy terrain. More recent studies add one more factor contributing to a healthy terrain: Emotions/Mental Health.

In our last newsletter we touched upon psychoneuroimmunology with a small test that you can take on your own (Click Here to see it). The higher the score, the greater your chances of getting sick. Why? Well, the higher the score, the greater your acidity/the less your alkalinity. There is an emotional side to our terrain. You can do everything the books tell you to keep your body alkaline, but if you have unchecked emotional issues, you will still be acidic. This is the body/mind connection, or as someone put it: emotional toxicity. 

We live in a toxic society. Our food, water, air is poisoned. Additionally, we are poisoning ourselves with drugs, alcohol, smoke, and even the way we cook our foods (barbecuing, microwaving).

Nearly every drug your doctor gives you causes your body to become acidic. Every can of pop, every cup of coffee, every teaspoon of sugar, every piece of chicken, steak, or fish you consume causes your body to become acidic.

The Clean-Up Crew Within

Béchamp theorized that there was a particle of life in us, the smallest living thing on the planet, called a microzyma. It is a plant. Scientists previous to Béchamp had seen these little "molecular granulations" but had no idea what they were. Gaston Naessens discovered somatids. Are they the same thing? I think so. Many think so. The newer powerful dark field microscopes allow doctors and scientists to view living tissues.

The microzymas are part of the clean-up crew that lives within all of us.

Now, one place where modern medicine is completely off track is in our standard blood tests. They take blood, stain it, freeze it, and examine it.

Blood is alive. It is not a liquid, but a mobile tissue (Béchamp was the first to describe blood thus). The things in our blood are alive. And one thing modern medicine does not accept is that something like a bacterium can change into a yeast that can turn into a fungus that can turn into a mold. We’ve talked about this in previous newsletters; it is called pleomorphism. Pleo meaning many and morph meaning form or body.

Gaston Naessens has thoroughly documented the life cycle of his somatids. As we published in our Cancer Edition of the Wellness Directory of Minnesota, Naessens discovered that his somatids are nearly indestructible. They resisted blasts of radiation, temperatures up to 392 degrees, and laughed at the strongest acids. Naessens mapped the somatid's (or microzyma's) pleomorphic life cycle. Others have documented the pleomorphic changes in bacteria, viruses, yeasts, molds and fungi.  

Dr Young, the author of Sick and Tired has watched these tiny creatures change from one to another under a dark field microscope. He has even seen a red blood cell turn into a bacterium and then back into a red blood cell. Yet it might take 100 more years for medical science recognize this fact. You will see why shortly.

The True Definition of Disease

When does disease begin? In our culture, disease begins at the onset of symptoms. In Chinese medicine, disease begins much earlier. However, with the theories of Béchamp followed by the scientific and verifiable research of Professor Gunter Enderlein (who basically proved all the theories of Béchamp), we now have a new definition of disease.

Disease begins when our alkaline tissues turn acidic and when our negative energy charge turns positive.

This is the beginning of disease.

Perhaps we should be quoting Dr Arthur C Guyton MD who wrote the Textbook of Medical Physiology (once used in most medical schools):

The first steps in maintaining health is to alkalize the body ( pH or acid/alkaline balance). This is one of the most important aspects of homeostasis. Changes in pH alter virtually all body functions.

The cells of a healthy body are alkaline while the cells of a diseased body are below a pH of 7.0. The more acidic the cell, the sicker we become. If the body cannot alkalize the cells they will become acidic and thus, disease sets in. Our bodies produce acid as a by product of normal metabolism. Since our bodies do not manufacture alkalinity, we must supply the alkalinity from an outside source to keep us from becoming acidic and dying.

A Little Chemistry

Water is one oxygen molecule connected to two hydrogen molecules. If you break the water molecule apart, you have one hydrogen on one side and an oxygen and hydrogen on the other.

H+ OH-

The singular hydrogen is acidic with a positive charge. The hydroxyl (OH) is alkaline with a negative charge. Together they are neutral.

A pH of 2 is extremely acidic. A pH of 11 is very alkaline. It's just a number; don't let it confuse you. I do like to refer to pH as Potential for Hydrogen. Dunno why, it's how I learned it. But I have also learned that the more hydrogen in a solution the more acidic that solution, and the more oxygen the more alkaline. 

Alkalinity means oxygen. We need oxygen to survive. We need oxygen to maintain an alkaline environment. Life is oxygen. Oxygen is life. 

In the past we have mentioned that bacteria, yeast, cancer, and viruses (just to name a few) survive without oxygen. They are said to have an anaerobic (without oxygen) existence. They metabolize without oxygen, just like fermentation. Fermentation produces alcohol (as one of its waste products) and many more wastes known as mycotoxins (that further corrupt our environment).

Remember the smell of the banana?

When we become acidic, our immune systems attempt to bring us back into order and balance, or homeostasis. Our immune system is, first, a clean-up crew, and second a juggling artist on a tightrope focused only on balance.

Our immune system's first job is to clean up the dead cells we slough off. Billions are lost daily. In just seven years, our entire body has been replaced with new cells. This is the immune system's first and foremost job.

If we get out of balance, then our juggling artist on a tightrope tries to re-balance the system. This is a secondary job. However, if we are really, really sick and begin to get attacked by outside invaders, then this overworked immune system has to try to fend them off. This is our immune system’s backup job. As Dr Young points out, when this happens, we’re riding on one of those tiny spare tires found in our trunks.

Disease begins when our bodies turn acidic.

Now, it is important to note that acid means lack of oxygen and that bacteria and germs and fungus all survive without oxygen. Because I’m about to tell you something that will knock your sox off.

Remember that clean-up crew we're all born with inside? The clean-up crew that ate the banana from the inside out?

When we turn acidic (lose our oxygen and our negative charge), the clean-up crew goes to work, BECAUSE IT THINKS WE ARE DEAD.

This is where the first symptoms of illness show up, but you have to be looking for them. The Chinese use smell and taste, and the shapes of fingernails, and all sorts of things to discover what’s going on here. Westerners need live blood analysis.

We talked about candida in our last newsletter. Candida is part of the cleanup crew. As this yeast turns into a fungus, it spreads its thin mycelia throughout our bodies attacking other organs. The clean-up crew produces wastes called mycotoxins. One of the wastes is uric acid, another is alcohol, and yet another is aflatoxin, one of the most potent carcinogens known.

Our liver starts producing more cholesterol to help clean up these mycotoxins. Take Lipitor™ and all you’ll do is allow the mycotoxins to create more and more damage to organs and blood vessels.

Now you know why modern medicine has ignored years of research and scientific findings.

Drugs cannot heal a sick terrain.

Only nutrition and detoxication programs can heal our terrain.

Do we need modern medicine? You bet we do! Our bodies are so far out of alignment that all too often we need something to save our lives.

The problem is, after having our life saved, we continue on our way as if we are totally healed when all we’ve been given is a short (very short) reprieve. The body is still acidic. We are still sick. 

Secondary Illness

Remember Rudolf Virchow’s quotation? Once our system is acidic, and once the clean-up crew kicks in, we start to get diseased tissues. Once we have diseased tissues, outside germs can find a favorable environment in which to grow. They produce the secondary illnesses we, in this modern culture, call illness or disease. As amazing as it can seem, germs are attracted to the diseased tissues, they are not the primary cause of it. 

But what about cancer? How does cancer fit into this picture?

First off, Dr Young points to a study from the University of Minnesota Medical School that every cancer patient ever tested has been found to have candida in their blood stream. They also noted, almost as an aside, that candida wasn’t responsive to drug therapy.

I can assure you that long before a person has cancer, that person has a systemic yeast problem. It just hasn’t surfaced. The mycotoxins released by a yeast/fungal infection cause the body to become even more acidic (with even less oxygen).

Otto Warburg won the Nobel Prize for describing how cancer metabolizes. He said that cells once thriving on oxygen suddenly become anaerobic.

If you were a cell, and you were deprived of oxygen (by an acidic environment) how would you survive? Wouldn’t you try to change your method of metabolism to one that did not require oxygen?

Cancer could very well be our bodies trying to survive the conditions we’ve allowed them to deteriorate to. Perhaps a better way of putting this is: Cancer is the result of your cells trying to survive a condition that you won't. 

Symptoms of Acidosis

Since the first step in the disease process occurs when our alkaline terrain turns acidic, it follows that acidosis is the number one disease in human beings. If so, then why doesn't our medical community test for it? 

Again, why test for something that pharmaceuticals or surgery cannot repair? 

From Dr Cochrain (mostly, but also from many others), a naturopath from St Paul, Minnesota, we learned the symptoms of the three stages of acidosis. 

The symptoms of the first stage of acidosis are so common that most people simply take a pain killer or some over the counter medication to mask the symptoms: headaches, food allergies, bloating, acne, panic attacks, lack of energy, lack of sex drive, cold hands and feet, agitation, hard to sleep, hard to get up, sinus headaches, and an increased susceptibility to colds and flu and whatever's going around.

The symptoms in phase two might bring you to a doctor, but still, some just self-medicate: cold sores, hives, depression, migraines, asthma, urinary tract infections, fungal infections, yeast infections, swelling, colitis, tingling, excessive falling hair, osteoarthritis, and atherosclerosis.

If you have toenail fungus, then take note that this fungal infection goes much further than just under your toenails. It is all over your body. And no drug (diflucan) will end it, though it might clear up symptoms for a while.

The final stages of acidosis are chronic, debilitating diseases: Crohn's disease, multiple sclerosis, leukemia, all cancers, Hodgkin's disease, schizophrenia, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and tuberculosis just to name a few. 

Heart Disease and Alkalinity 

From a lecture by Scientist/Nutritionist Dr Fred Kaufman we get the following quotation:

"Why is it just the arteries around the heart that get clogged and not the other veins and capillaries? Because wherever there is a muscle producing energy there’s always a by-product of lactic acid or waste....as you know any kind of acid can burn.....this lactic acid burns holes in the arteries and the liver uses cholesterol to patch those holes. Because heart is a muscle that continually produces lactic Acid. The more acidic your blood is the more clogged your arteries are."

This is why our omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids are so important to heart health. They cut the production of lactic acid. As Johanna Budwig discovered, these oils are highly charged (negatively) and if bio-available, they keep our bodies negatively charged and alkaline. (See the article Johanna Budwig Revisited, at the bottom, for information on our favorite product, Omegasentials.)

Summary   

There you have it. Our medical and scientific communities have sold out to the profiteers and have erased one huge chunk of science (scientific fact) from our history. You stay sick; they stay rich. And sadly, they’re in this too. They too are sick for having overlooked this bit of information. Is there anyone who doesn't now understand why we, Americans, pay more for medical care than any other people on the planet yet our health care system is ranked 24th? 

I highly recommend Dr Young’s book. It is an eye opener. He also has a wonderful web site (http://www.beaphmiracle.com/index.html). 

There are things that I found in Dr Young’s book that I disagree with. Mainly a few of his nutritional beliefs. They seemed a little off the mark, at least from our nutritional research. I was also reading another book at the same time called Alkalize or Die by Dr Theodore A Baroody. The nutritional advice in this other book seems to be more realistic. But then again, even some of the things he says in Alkalize or Die. concerning heart disease don't jive with our findings on heart disease. This is to be expected. What we know today in the sciences is still very little compared to what we will know ten, twenty, thirty years from now. Learning is an endless, but joyful journey.

So now, let us focus on returning our bodies to their alkaline and negatively charged state.

How to Alkalize

We have touched upon the subject of alkalinity in our books and at our web site, but have not really focused on it because there has not been an easy way to maintain our alkalinity. We can talk diet and lifestyle changes all day long, but who among those with cancer have sustained (longer than a week) the diet plan we have posted here (at this web site) for cancer?

Diet regimens are hard to stick to, especially when we crave our favorite foods. Sure, some of you have avoided sugar, but now and then you give in. We’re human.

Humans are weak.

This is why we have not focused on keeping our terrain alkaline: people just don’t want to change their diets. However, after some recent findings, I think that we can all get our health back with just a few minor changes in our habits and some of the helpful products, supplements, and devices we’ve uncovered. And once you’ve reached perfect health, by all means, come Saturday night, go out and have that Double Gut Whomper with Cheese and a bucket of Partially Hydrogenated Fries! Wash it down with a Sam Adams or one of those new alcoholic pops. Have some fun. Because it’s not what you do on Saturday night that counts, but what you do the rest of the week.

Our Regimen (For the Rest of the Week)

One of the nicest guys you’d ever want to meet, with one of the greatest attitudes you’ll ever want to attain hangs out in AOL’s Cancer Support Chat Room. His name is Rick. He’s supposed to be dead, at least according to his doctors (or was it his wife?).

He’s using Cesium Chloride.

In our second edition of the Wellness Directory of Minnesota we made a mention to Cesium Chloride, but we hardly recommend it because of the possible side effects.

Never self-prescribe. Always get a physician or health care professional to monitor and guide you. For one thing, you need to take a lot of extra minerals with Cesium Chloride: potassium, calcium in particular.

Cesium Chloride is a dangerous substance if mishandled. There are a few studies using Cesium Chloride for cancer that showed significant success, but again, there are other options that are not as dangerous and that have fewer side effects.

We do know one thing about cancer: Cancer cannot survive in an alkaline, oxygenated environment.

(The following list is posted at our site in a separate article How to Alkalize. It already has additional products listed, and it will be kept up to date as we research further on the subject.)

Sodium Chlorite

Sodium Chlorite is a safe, natural substance that is a precursor to chlorine dioxide. Chlorine dioxide releases oxygen into the blood stream and, according to Dr Young (his web and his book) it might also help to clean up foreign materials (toxins) in your blood stream.

With chlorine dioxide flowing through your body, the oxygen is released slowly which can slow and stop the growth (and spores) of candida.

Green Drinks and Superfoods

You can bet that we’re going to focus on foods here that will help. Wheat grass and your superfoods are chock full of minerals and enzymes. The enzymes are both antimycotoxic (clean of the mycotoxins released by the yeast/fungal infections) and antioxidant, while the minerals play an important role in keeping cellular communication channels open.

Garlic

Garlic is one of the best medicines in the world. It has natural germanium (see below) and is antifungal and antibacterial (just to name a few things). Naturopaths recommend up to seven cloves a day (depending on your stomach and your ability to withstand garlic). And as always, we must warn you that if you intend to cook using garlic, please crush it up and let it sit for ten minutes before adding it to your recipe. It has to sit so that the enzymes can create the wonderful healing phytochemicals you’ll be needing.

Germanium (Organic)

We list germanium in our Alternative Cancer Therapies because it enhances the capabilities of oxygen in our bodies. Dr Young points out that it has to be an organic germanium, possibly because of the damage the inorganic kind has been responsible for. Again, I think this is something to be used only under a physician's care. But by all means, germanium is a healing element that will add to your negative electrical charge and increase interferon production (to fight off the parasites and bugs that are trying to clean up your system).

NAC

Or N-acetyl Cystein; something I take daily. I love to barbecue. But barbecues have a tendency to fill your body with all sorts of carcinogens (acrolein is one). NAC is a powerful anticarcinogen, antimycotoxin and detoxifier. It pulls heavy metals from your body and supports production of glutathione, the body’s most powerful antioxidant. It is anti-aging also, and the one mycotoxin, acetaldehyde, that is responsible for so much collateral damage in our bodies, is totally wiped out by daily use of NAC. It is truly amazing stuff.

There are more, and we will be adding to this list. All alkalizing supplements and foods will be placed into this article on our web and available through the Table of Contents.

We have to stop here and talk about those things that we are doing to acidify our bodies in the first place. We can take supplements, detoxication programs, etc, but if we keep acidifying our bodies, we’re facing a losing battle.

So let us jump into a complete HOLISTIC program for maintaining our proper terrain.

First off, we must monitor our pH. In his book, Alkalize or Die, Dr Baroody tells us that there is no good way to measure our pH because it fluctuates all day long. However, according to Dr Cochrain, a St Paul, MN Naturopath and Chiropractor, recent studies have shown that if we take our pH first thing in the morning (before our breakfast or yoga or anything) and take the pH of both our urine and saliva, that this will give a the best indication of our pH.

Our pH can be taken by using pH strips. Dip them in your urine and saliva and compare the color against the chart. 

Next, we must ask ourselves, what are the major causes of acidity in our society? The following are not listed in the most acidic to the least acidic, but rather, the most acidic to lesser because of their usage in our society. Listed at the top is our greatest addiction in America. Following that, you will see Dr Baroody’s take on the most acidic "things" within our personal sphere.

1. Caffeine (coffee). I know you’re all going to hate to know this. The drug of choice in this world today is coffee, but it is ruining our health. However, if you purchase organically raised, shade grown coffee, you will not acidify your body to the degree that your standard coffees will. If you have a coffee addiction, take a look at your general health and see if you need to get a grip on it.

2. Soda Pop. When I was a kid, pop was a treat. Today it is a staple. Most people have three or four cans of pop each day. First off, the sugar in a can of pop will cause your body to become acidic. Sugar is an acidifier. And if you’re drinking sugar free pop, you’re not much better off as the aspartame in it turns into formaldehyde and acid in your body.

3. Anything containing carbon dioxide, phosphoric acid, aspartame™. If you drink charged water, you are drinking a waste product. Our bodies give off CO2 as a waste product. Why would anyone want to drink a waste product (if they thought about it long enough)? Aspartame® turns into formaldehyde and acid in your body. When you are acidic, your metabolism gets clogged down. The drink might say "Diet" but you won’t lose weight with this stuff in your body.

4. Meat, poultry, and fish. All of these "cooked" proteins cause our bodies to become acidic. Eating them raw would be a better option but ONLY if the methods we raised them and processed them were healthier.

5. Sugar. Especially white sugar or high fructose corn syrup. Anything with sugar added will increase it’s acidifying properties immensely. Additionally, we learned from Dr Cochrain that just one teaspoon of sugar will lower your resistance by 50% for up to 24 hours. (Mountain Dew has 8 tablespoons of sugar in one can.)

So, there you have it. Can you drink coffee and maintain a healthy terrain, yes, but not if you drink to excess. Can you eat meat and stay alkaline, yes, if you don’t overdo it and balance your meat with alkalizing fruits and vegetables.

Most Alkalizing and Most Acidifying 

Dr Baroody created a little chart that I wish you all had. We are going to ask the good doctor for permission to reprint the entire chart here at our web site, but until then, look at the graph below for a little hint.

Most Alkaline   Most Acidic

Meditation
Prayer
Peace
Kindness
Love
Lemons
Watermelon

 

Overwork
Anger
Fear
Jealousy
Stress
Artificial Sweeteners

Toxins Equal Acid

The first thing we must all do is DETOX our bodies. We start with the colon, then the liver, and then the other organs and our blood and skin. To learn how to detox, you can read Cleaning House – The Correct Way to Detox.

It took us over 4 years to write that original article, mainly because there are so many methods out there that purport to detox your body. There are little pills that guarantee to detox your colon, which don’t really do a thing but take your money and give you the runs.

In natural medicine we focus on two things: What goes in and what comes out.

Doesn’t what goes in always come out? Nope.

There are those who say that all disease begins in the colon. This is a pretty strong statement, but if you consider that the second step in the disease process is when the yeast (that lives in your colon) takes off, well, I think we’re on to something. Yeast’s purpose is to break up and soften the stool. If given a chance to flourish, well, we are going to cover the digestive tract in our next issue of this newsletter.

Yeast begins to flourish in your digestive tract the moment your digestive process is slowed. In other words, if you don’t have a bowel movement 24 hours after eating (on a regular basis), your digestive tract is slow. You have indigestion.

In the next newsletter you will learn that Heart Burn and Indigestion, if let go long enough, is deadly. You might think it’s harmless, but indigestion is one of the first steps downhill to a good number of degenerative diseases.

Detoxing beings in the colon. Everything that has been gathered up by the liver and by your cholesterol is dumped into the colon and expelled through your bowel movements. If it stays too long in the colon, it is reabsorbed.

Latest News on Detoxing Your Body

We have recently discovered a product that will be found in my home every day for the rest of my life. Bathing in it helps pull toxins from our bodies. Drinking it helps neutralize our acidity. We will introduce this product to you later on in the article entitled: Miracle II.

Our Mental Chatter

Here is an experiment. Measure the pH of your saliva when you are feeling fine. Then, if you get angry (have a fight with your boss or spouse or for you men, you lose the remote) take your pH then too. And compare!

I did this the other day. I measured my pH at 6.8. That’s a pretty good place to be, between 6.8 and 7.0. However, a few minutes later, my neighbor called with some sort of horse emergency and darned if I could find my keys! The moment I uttered my first fiery word, I saw the pH strips. I grabbed one and measured my saliva. It was off the chart. I had battery acid in my mouth (nearly).

The pH of our saliva gives us our emotional state. The more alkaline the better our state; and the more acidic, the more emotionally troubled we are. This is a plain and simple fact. If you take care of your body, but ignore your emotions you will not maintain your terrain. Hence, we called this regimen an Holistic Approach. We are focusing now on caring for our entire person, the Holy Trinity, as it were, consisting of the Body, Mind, and Spirit.

Did you know that attending a church service will raise your pH? Praying produces negative electrical charges within our bodies.

Let us take a look at the water molecule broken apart:

H+ OH-

The hydrogen ion on the left has a positive charge; the hydroxyl ion on the right has a negative charge. The left is acidic; the right is alkaline and has oxygen. In nature, opposites attract and these two form a water molecule consisting of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. This molecule is balanced, with no charge and is neither alkaline nor acidic, but is neutral. To maintain proper pH we have to be in balance like the water molecule.

Alkalinity and a negative electrical charge go together. This is where our magnetic therapies come in, our Yoga and Qigong and Reike and acupuncture also. This is where a trip to the mountains or the oceans or the Grand Canyon come in. Love and happiness and families unfettered by conflict build electrical charges in our bodies.

Oxygenated water (ozone), alkaline water, negatively charged water and beds giving off negative ions; these are new products being developed for the sole purpose of charging and alkalizing our bodies. They don’t cure any particular disease, they just make our terrains well again. And, as you will see in the article Miracle II, when you care for the terrain, you just get healthier, no matter what the problem.

Food

I highly recommend the book Alkalize or Die, but it is presently out of print and hard to find, though I found a bunch of copies by searching the web. The author lists foods and their alkalizing (acidifying) potentials. Most fruits and vegetables (especially the dark green ones) are alkalizing. Exceptions are plums, blueberries, and cranberries. It is good to note that even something acidifying can still contain healthful nutrients. Meat contains CoQ10, which is needed for energy at the cellular level. Without it, your cells die. Blueberries contain phytochemicals that fight heart disease and cancer. Tomatoes are just a tiny bit alkalizing, but can fight all sorts of cancers and protect the prostate, that is, if they are not cooked all day long in aluminum pots.

Dr Revici, who developed a very unique cancer regimen, referred to foods as either anabolic (constructive) or catabolic (destructive); this was Revici’s way of categorizing foods that cause our bodies to turn alkaline or acidic. One thing he noted, along with a few other physicians (like Dr Albert Schweitzer), is that sugar and salt are catabolic. However, Revici was referring to white sugar and ordinary table salt (Celtic Sea Salt is anabolic because of all the minerals [colloids] it contains). See Dr Revici below under the heading, The Revici Method.

Most sugars are acidifying. Honey is not. Sucanat™ is just a bit alkalizing. All products with sugar added are acidifying. Processed foods are definitely acidifying.

Here is something I just learned and really have to pass on to you. Take any pickle from your local supermarket. It is terribly acidifying. Now, take a pickle that you made at home, using Celtic Sea Salt, organic non-pasteurized apple cider vinegar, fresh organic cucumbers (and onions and garlic and peppers) and fresh organic spices, and you have the exact opposite of an acidifier. You have an alkalizer. Again, this is just one more reason to eat organic whole foods.

And always keep in mind that just because something is alkaline or acidic IN ITSELF doesn’t mean that it will pass that property to your terrain. The author of Alkalize or Die did a lot of research for this book to show that you don’t know what something will do to your body till it is tested. So, pick up a copy of that book. Remember? Lemons are very acidic, but in your body they are a potent alkalizer.

Oh, and asparagus. Don’t forget the asparagus. Dr Baroody points out that any food that has been frozen, canned, etc. will lose a half a point in his alkalizing scale. Basically, the more processed a food is, the less alkalizing it is. His chart goes from 0 to 8, 8 being alkalizing to the fullest, and 0 being acidifying (to the fullest). But asparagus is one vegetable that is always alkalyzing no matter what form it is in (though, yes, when canned it does drop that property slightly).

In fact, there is an asparagus cancer cure, in which all you eat is asparagus (a mono diet is a diet of one thing).

And don’t forget melons. All your melons are alkalizing.

Lemon Squash

And finally, let us jump back to the late 18 hundreds and Antoine Bechamp. He discovered that drinking Lemon Squash all day long was one of the healthiest things anyone could do. What is Lemon Squash? It is water with a little lemon in it. In her book, The Fat Flush Plan, Ann Gittleman has you drink one half lemon in hot water daily during the first phase of her diet plan. After that, you drink water with lemon all day long. This keeps the kidneys working and helps to alkalize the body. It was good for you over a hundred years ago, and it’s still good for you.

Vinegar & Honey

Julius Caesar and George Washington gave it to their troops before battle. Hippocrates gave it to all his patients. In the Pharaohs tombs, they sealed it in large vases to take this into the next world. It helps to oxygenate the cells, improve circulation, balance your pH, normalize thyroid function and metabolism, rid the body of lactic acid and calcium deposits, increase circulation, absorption, and assimilation of vitamins and minerals. A simple mixture of Vinegar & Honey. But the vinegar must be raw, non-pasteurized, apple cider vinegar. All other vinegars are catabolic (acid forming).

Some people like to mix them full strength in the morning and drink it down: a shot of vinegar and a shot of honey together. However, we got this ancient formula and will present it here:

Mix 1 cup of the apple cider vinegar with 1/2 cup of honey (can use less or more honey, depending on your taste. You will take three tablespoons daily.

One way to drink this is by mixing 3 tablespoons with 2 to 36 oz (the more fluid will not lessen the potency as long as you drink it all in one day) of water, juice, or tea and sip throughout the day.

Oxygen is Life

Have you ever heard of the Yogis who went into a trance and were buried for 30 days or more, and when they were dug up, they were in perfect health?

There are stories of Yogis who died, and their bodies did not start to rot for a month.

Their secret was oxygen. Yogis practice breathing exercises that charge their cells with oxygen. Practitioners of various modalities of meditations, yoga, and qigong live longer than people who do not practice these "internal" arts. This is because part of the practice is deep breathing and oxygen is alkalizing.

Oxygen is life.

Deep Breathing Exercises

First we must talk about the way we breathe, here in our society.

Next time you get a chance, watch a baby breathing. The baby never stops. Breathing is one continual movement. Watch a dog breathe. Same thing. One continual movement.

In our society, we stop breathing. In the middle of a crossword puzzle, hanging a frame, repairing a toaster, or untying a knot, most of us suddenly stop breathing to focus on our work.

We learned this young, the moment we got into trouble and heard our name yelled out at us. We stopped breathing.

Now, back to that baby. If the baby is lying supine, watch the baby’s tummy. With every breath, the tummy goes up and down.

Right now, close your eyes and observe how you breathe. Is your breath caught up in your chest or does it go deep down into your abdomen?

Adults have forgotten how to do these "baby breaths." Most of us breathe into our upper lungs and raise our shoulders. Only a portion of our lungs exist up there. The diaphragm is below our lungs where most of the air sacs exist.

Deep breathing means (besides learning to breathe all over again) thrusting the diaphragm downward pushing out our tummies (no one likes to appear in public with their tummy extended) first and then filling our chests afterwards. This is hard to practice at first, but believe me, you’ll get used to it.

Deep Breathing Exercise #1

You can do this in any position - lying, sitting or standing.

  1. Quiet the room of distractions like turning off the television or closing the door.
  2. Close your eyes.
  3. Take a deep breath in through your nose. Pretend you are sniffing a flower. When you inhale, your abdomen or stomach should rise and then your chest. Hold for a few seconds.
  4. Exhale in reverse pattern through your mouth. Let your body relax and go limp. Do this over a few seconds.
  5. As you inhale, you can say to yourself, "I am" and with exhaling saying "relaxed."
  6. Repeat this as long as you need (a few to 10 minutes).

Notes: If you feel like you are short of breath, take a few regular breaths and when you feel better, continue the deep breathing.

When tense or anxious, your breathing becomes irregular and shallow. Deep breathing has long been known to have relaxing properties. Oxygen tends to revitalize, energize and relax.

Deep Breathing Exercise #2

  1. Lie on the ground or sit in a position where your spine is straight.
  2. Tense all the muscles in your body completely as you inhale. Concentrate on the tension and hold tight while slowly counting to ten.
  3. Gradually let the muscles go as you exhale and feel the contrast. Try to let go and relax totally. Repeat two to three times. Exhale completely.

Notes: To check whether you are breathing into your lower abdomen, place one hand on your chest and the other on the abdomen over navel.

Inhale and feel which hand moves the most. If your breathing is efficient, the lower hand should move the most.

Once you’ve learned to breathe into your tummy, inhale very, very slowly, allowing the breath to enter effortlessly through your nose. At the same time, push out your abdomen as though you were blowing up a balloon in your belly. Move your chest as little as possible.

After your abdomen is stretched, expand your chest with air. This fills up the middle part of your lungs. Hold the breath for about five seconds and then slowly begin to exhale. As you do so, let your abdomen fall and relax. Repeat this for twenty breaths. Focus your attention on the movement of your abdomen as you inhale and exhale.

Simple Weight Loss

As touted above with the Vinegar & Honey mixture and the effect this solution has on the thyroid and metabolism, when we alkalize our bodies (add oxygen) our metabolism rises. If you don’t have a thyroid problem, just alkalizing your body will help you to lose a few pounds.

Now, I’m not about to leave you here hanging. Over the next few months, we’re going to focus on foods, products, supplements and methods of alkalizing our bodies. We want to review a variety of waters (many of you know that one of my greatest interests involves water). And if you have anything to add, please send it along!

How I Alkalize
by Gloria Alvino

Editor's Note: We've talked about Dr Flannagan's microclusters at this site previously and the two products he created for Royal Body Care called Microhydrin and Crystal Energy. Royal Body Care still sells products with those names, but they are not the same products Dr Flannagan created. Flannagan left Royal Body Care (and there's a big lawsuit going on right now) and is creating his same products under the names Active H- and Super Hydrate respectively.


Because you love the pleasure of your aquarium, you not only feed the fish, but also are careful to monitor the pH and to change the water.

You go on vacation and your roommate promises to take care of your fish. On your return from vacation, you find all your beautiful neon and angel fish lying dead on the bottom of the cloudy water.  Your roommate forgot to change the water!

What happened?  The pH of the water became acidic and the fish died.  When the fish die, we don't just put new fish into that old polluted water.  When the fish die, we change the water before buying new fish.

What happens if the pH of our internal terrain becomes acidic?  Can our cells remain healthy and normal or do they similarly die off?  An acidic cell slows in activity, diminishes, and dies.   An acidic body is a sick body.  We live in an acidic world! The majority of people now eat, drink, and breathe acidic! 

Remember that cancer cells love an acidic media and produce an even more acidic media as they rapidly increase their reproduction.  As these acid-loving cancer cells proliferate, it becomes more difficult for the good cells to reproduce normally. 

Remember that pH is a measure on a scale of 1 to 15 (or 14.4) of the power of Hydrogen.  A pH of 7 is neutral, under 7 is acidic, and over seven is alkaline or basic.

The body is constantly working to keep in biological balance this acid/base physiology in the body fluids and tissues.  The measurement of the pH of these fluids and tissues must remain within a very narrow band in order for the body to enjoy optimal health.

The normal pH of our blood varies between 7.3 to 7.35 for venous, 7.35 to 7.4 capillary, and 7.4 to 7.45 arterial.  Saliva measures 6.0 to 7.0, and urine measures 4.5 to 8.0.  The saliva and urine fluctuate more with daily diet.  To insure that the blood pH remains fairly constant the body has a number of complex buffering systems.  

The highly processed, dead foods we eat, the polluted air we breathe, and the negativity and fear promulgated by the media all add higher acidity to the cells of our bodies.  Not just physical, but even emotional stress makes our bodies more acidic.

Our approach to optimal health for a higher quality of life must remain multi-faceted.  In addition to eating more organic fresh, raw fruits and vegetables, exercising, praying/meditating, and focusing on positive thoughts, words, and deeds, we can add optimal supplements to our diets.

The core of my health maintenance, disease prevention, and healing program is Active H-, Super Hydrate, and Organic Greens.

Active H- (silica hydride) a negatively charged hydrogen ion:

Hydrogen is the most abundant element making up 90% of all the atoms in the universe.  Henri Coanda and Patrick Flanagan discovered that silica crystals dissolved in the Hunza glacial waters were able to hold negatively charged hydrogen ions (H-).  These compounds are technically known as silica hydrides.

Regular hydrogen has one positively charged proton in its nucleus and one negatively charged electron orbiting around the nucleus.  The two charges neutralize each other.  Active H- hydrogen contains one positively charged proton in its nucleus with two electrons orbiting the nucleus resulting in a negatively charged hydrogen ion.

Supplementing the diet with Active H- capsules or powder helps to keep the internal terrain mildly alkaline while adding high resonance (zeta potential), neutralizing free radicals, increasing intracellular hydration, and adding energy to the cells of the body.

Organically grown, freshly expressed and instantly consumed wheatgrass juice similarly provides negatively charged hydrogen ions and helps to keep the internal terrain mildly alkaline.  Throughout her life, Ann Wigmore, the pioneer of the value of raw foods and of wheatgrass juice, taught and healed people.  Her disciples including Brian Clement of the Hippocrates Institute, and David Sandoval, the formulator of our Organic Greens, carry on today.

Organic, fresh raw fruits and vegetables grown and consumed locally are the basis of a healthy, alkaline producing diet. The core of an excellent supplementation program for optimal health maintenance, disease prevention, and healing is Active H-, Super Hydrate, and Organic Greens.

All three work synergistically.  The Active H- does all that we discussed and more.  Most people take 4 capsules daily of the Active H- with a minimum of 2 daily for small, healthy adults, and up to 9 daily for people who are very acidic.  Active H- is also taken by children and pets.

The Super Hydrate will re-energize your drinking water and increase intra and inter-cellular hydration.  Add 1 drop of Super Hydrate to every ounce of pure water you drink throughout the day. Add 1 teaspoonful to a gallon, or 32 to 40 drops to a quart of water.  Take your body weight in lbs and divide by 2 to get the number of ounces you need to drink daily when at rest!

The Organic Greens are a propriety blend of 46 plant extracts and organic green grasses that support a healthy pH balance in the body while providing antioxidant benefits.  Unlike many other greens, Organic Greens bears the US Dept. Agriculture's seal of organic certification given by Quality Assurance International.  Most people take 1 scoop of powder 2 times daily in a glass of water with Super Hydrate drops.  Take 1 scoop 3-4 times daily as needed to help alkalinize while nourishing the body.

Remember, that we each have the power of choice.  We can choose our attitude, color our perspective, and create our reality.  The human body is a veritable miracle.  It performs thousands of processes optimally daily without our intervention.  Let us thank our bodies daily for what it does so well, while offering it loving support when needed to heal itself by restoring lost balance and harmony.  Let us heal … body, mind, and spirit.

This is the only thing we ask: If you want us to review your product, send us something. You had better believe in your product enough to send us something gratis. After that, we oftentimes order still more so that we can test the product thoroughly (and send it to people who really could use some help). Now, how much testing did we do on the Miracle II products? We spent some $800. Why? Because right away we saw miracles happening.

Your author has had chicken skin on his upper arms since the sixties. I’ve been told by so many naturopaths that I need vitamin E or Essential Fatty Acids, or I need to detox. Over the past 25 years, I’ve tried practically everything. After just three baths in the Miracle II moisturizing soap, I could see the chicken skin going away. A neighbor touched my arm helping me up on my horse and said, "My, your skin is so soft!"

The first day a bottle of Miracle II soap arrived, my neighbor brought me a puppy that was dying. It was listless and refused to eat or drink. The poor pup was just five weeks old. It whined and grunted. My neighbor had to get to work, so she left the pup with me. I set it on the ground and it walked kinda funny. It looked like the pup had constipation. I mixed up a bit of water 50/50 with the soap, and using an eye dropper, I gave the pup a quick soap enema. He squealed. When I set the pup down again, it waddled for a few feet, squatted, and out came five days worth of poop. The pup looked up at me almost smiling. Within a few minutes it’s appetite was back. It ate and ate and took a drink and fell asleep.

My neighbor returned, and not only took her pup back, she bought a bottle of the soap from me. Suddenly, I was a distributor.

Ok, so what have we personally tested? We mixed one ounce of the soap with 32 ounces of water and worked on the carpets. This stuff got up pet stains better than the fifty dollar bottle of enzymes from the Pet Store. As a carpet shampoo, it works better than the expensive stuff that came with my carpet shampoo. One bottle of Miracle II soap costs $22.00 (plus shipping) One bottle of soap makes 4 gallons of carpet shampoo. Four gallons of carpet shampoo would cost me (using the stuff the manufacturer recommends) over $200.

One bottle of soap makes 144 gallons of window washer. When people tell me that this soap is expensive, I wonder, just how expensive the soap is that they buy.

We’ve heard some good stories about the soap with moisturizer too. A few people love it as a shampoo. One told us that it put a curl back into her hair. Let’s face it, your scalp needs good oils. And everyone so far has loved the skin moisturizer. It has nothing harmful in it, just natural oils your skin loves. The gel is also getting rave reviews. People with psoriasis put it over their rough spots after bathing. One friend with a surgical scar, after just two weeks is seeing great results with her scars. They are getting smaller and softer.

You can read more about the products here: Miracle II.

Here at the International Wellness Directory we have always had a conflict of interest policy. We don’t sell a thing because how could you trust us that the information we present is true to the best of our knowledge and not just a sales pitch? However, we have decided to take on this product (and become a distributor) simply because the philosophy surrounding these products is our philosophy already and they do for you what we’ve been telling people to do for years.

1. The products are non toxic. You could drink the soap (diluted, because it can burn the esophagus) till you’re blowing bubbles out of every orifice. We have told you time and time again: toss the toxins out of your kitchen and bathroom. This is the only soap you will ever need.

2. The products detoxicate your body. Bathe in them, drink them, spray them on your body. Rub the gel all over yourself. You will detoxicate your body. See below for instructions (and a warning) on how to detox.

3. The products help you to alkalize your body. If you make just a few minor life changes (like stop drinking 10 cups of coffee each day, or that six pack of pop), you can raise your alkalinity and get back the health you deserve.

4. We have seen the miracles behind the name, Miracle II.

We learned about Miracle II from people listed in our directory who’ve been doing bodywork, yoga, etc, for years and years. They are our old friends. They sent us products simply because they liked our work and wanted to thank us. It hasn’t been long since they had became distributors, but they too have seen miracles and they are collecting a large number of testimonials from people using the products. Now as you and I are both aware, testimonials are the weakest form of proof available when testing a product. (See Studies Show) One person in a million can have something miraculous happen and that’s who we hear from, but when it comes to all others, nothing. Ok? We’re both on the same frequency here?

However, there are never going to be double blind studies done on Miracle II, unless you want to pay $200 a bottle some day. I have a friend who gets a $3,000.00 injection once a month. This is what happens when you play the game of the big pharmaceutical companies and start extensive testing.

What we do know is this: Naturopaths are using them with their patients and are helping to allow their patients bodies to heal Fibromyalgia, skin cancers, lupus, and multiple sclerosis just to name a few.

Here are a few stories (we’ve gathered locally since getting our first bottle) and a few reports from people (and me) who are reviewing the products for this article:

The first testimonial every concerning this product was from a woman in Oklahoma who called Clayton (the inventor of the product) asking, "Hey, what’s in this stuff?" He read off the list of ingredients (including an anointing by God) and added, "Why do you ask?" The woman replied, "Because my skin cancer went away."

Two cases of macular degeneration stopped degenerating by just spraying the eyeballs daily with the neutralizer. I spray a little in my eyes each morning and during my tennis matches.

Three people who suffer from bipolar disorder have watched their symptoms go away. They are off their medications. There is a physician and researcher who believes that all mental disorders are caused by toxins in our bodies that cause us to turn acidic. His article The Toxic Mind is worth reading (but get yourself a dictionary). This is one area we are watching closely, as many of our readers suffer from depression.

Two people suffering massive depression, after just two short weeks on the product are having the best summer of their lives. One says this is the first summer that she hasn’t thought of suicide.

One person, visiting a family member in a care home, put two ounces in that person’s IV bag. Now don’t do this at home; it is probably illegal. But the person she visited was in a coma and was not expected to ever come out of that coma. The care home was just keeping him comfortable. The next day, to the surprise of everyone he was up as if nothing had happened.

Three cases of psoriasis have begun disappearing. Only one month on the product and they say they can see it slipping away. Their patches are getting smaller. Some have disappeared. These people have all become distributors.

Fibromyalgia patients are getting better. They bathe daily (sometimes three times daily) and drink up to 3 ounces a day of the neutralizer. The results are spectacular.

Two people have reported that dabbing their skin tags with the soap helps them to fall off in less than two weeks (if you do this twice daily).

Our proofreader reports that shampooing with the moisturizing soap has brought the curl back into her hair. She also reports:

Personally, I've seen styes (in the eye) go away after a few squirts of the neutralizer. I watched one person end her pink eye with just a couple of squirts. I have also noticed my skin getting softer and softer. Friends who have bathed with the soap and neutralizer have also noticed smoother skin and have really noticed how much drier their skin is if they miss their baths. One reported that her eczema went away for a week, she stopped her bath, and then it came back. She's now bathing three times a week using the soap and neutralizer. 

The most amazing thing I’ve personally seen thus far is this. I bathe three times a week (soak, actually) and drink up to an ounce of the neutralizer daily. Besides having a great (and very uncomfortable) detoxication with rashes and skin eruptions to boot, I witnessed something quite remarkable just about two weeks ago.

Now some of you remember from our last newsletter that I am losing weight (like gangbusters). Well, with the addition of this soap I’m losing even more, and feeling just wonderful. One evening I felt so wonderful, I thought I was twelve years old again. I went up to my horse and jumped on him without a saddle. Now my horse had had less than two hours riding on him. He isn’t used to riding bareback or just having someone jump on him, so he did what most young horses would do: he tossed me on my butt.

I hit the ground hard, no legs or arms to break my fall (well, my right arm hit the ground pretty hard too).

Since I didn’t want to freeze up and lose my summer of tennis, I put a little gel on the spot and stayed awake that night moving about, bending, just not letting my back freeze up. The next day, a friend (who had witnessed the fall) wanted to see the bruise (at the base of my back, just at the underwear line). I showed her, and she said, "Hey, there’s no bruise!"

I did not bruise. My arm that hit the ground did not have a bruise either. It took a week to finally get a bruise, but it was small, and went away in just a few short days. This was a miracle! (Especially knowing that just a few weeks earlier I slipped in the shower hit the faucet with my bum and had a black and blue mark about as big as a Frisbee).

How To Detox (Using Miracle II Products)

The best thing about this stuff is it’s ability to detox the body. Detoxication programs are nasty business. First I want you all to read Cleaning House and do the colon and liver cleanse. We all need to clean our colons and our livers. For the other organs, and the biggest organ of them all (our skin) we’re going to bathe and drink the stuff. Skin is our third lung, our third kidney.

Depending on how toxic you are is how much you will drink and how often you will bathe. Your author was already on a detox. I had cleaned my colon six months previous and had done the liver cleanse after that. Additionally, on the Fat Flush Plan, I was still detoxing the liver and doing a yeast/candida cleanse.

Here is the minimum plan which I followed: bathe three times a week with one ounce of the soap (I use the moisturizing soap) mixed with two ounces of the neutralizer. I drink one ounce of the neutralizer daily, putting it in all my drinks from my water to my smoothies. And by bathe, we mean soak for 35 minutes minimum. Doesn’t do any good if you’re in and out and on your way.

If you are very very very sick, then you should bathe three times a day and drink four ounces of the neutralizer daily.

If you are somewhere in between, then you’ll have to create your own plan somewhere in between the guidelines given above.

One word of warning. When you detox expect things to get worse before they get better. You could get diarrhea or headaches. It is not uncommon to get a rash or skin blemishes, pimples, or boils. Something painful could get more painful. Just keep on detoxing and it will soon go away. This is to be expected. There have been some very extremely painful outbreaks (both physical and mental) during a detox. Just don’t stop detoxing. (You’re author got himself a rash, zits all over in places I’ve never seen zits including one big on in my ear that I will have to tell you about in the next newsletter because it helped us make another great discovery.)

Track Your Progress

Purchase pH test strips. The first thing you do in the morning, before you stretch, or do yoga, or have your first cup of coffee, take your pH. Take the pH of your first urine. Dip the strip and compare the color on the chart on the side of the pH strip container. Then dip one in your saliva and test that. Keep a chart.

Take a piece of paper and write out your complaints. What hurts? A knee? An elbow? Kidneys? Write out all your complaints.

And remember, as Andrew Weil points out in his books and as we’ve tried to point out in the past: natural remedies take time. The one selling point of conventional medicine is their effectiveness: you take a pill and the pain is gone! Natural remedies, for the most part, take time. You must do your program for ninety days. It has taken you all your life to get the way you are, do not expect to fix it overnight. Sure, many people have seen miracles occur using these products. But you must do this for 90 full days. Turning our bodies alkaline is not an easy task. You might have to change your diet a bit too. But the soap and neutralizer are the best tools we have ever seen here in our research for helping keep our bodies alkaline.

Miracle II
How it came about…

Clayton Tedeton’s life was changed on December 17th, 1969. It was changed by a sixteen year old girl who just happened to run a stop sign and landed Clayton in the hospital, flat on his back, for eight months.

His life was changed once again after that, while still lying in bed watching a televangelist. The man on the TV screen pointed a finger directly at Clayton and said, "There’s a man out there who has been in a wreck. God’s going to heal him if he believes."

Clayton knew that many people were watching that TV show that day, but he felt that the preacher was talking directly to him. He said to himself, "If there is a God as real as he’s talking about, if you will let me get well so I can go on and raise my family, I will do anything you want me to do."

And he meant it.

The next morning, as if someone had flipped a switch, Clayton found himself totally healed. His wife found him tossing his pain pills down the toilet and cried out, "Are you crazy?"

Clayton had breakfast and went to work as if nothing had ever happened.

Now if you have trouble believing the above, then you’re not going to believe the rest of this story, but just sit back and pretend it’s a fairy tale.

Clayton went for nine years wondering how God was going to use him. One day he heard a voice. It told him that Clayton was going to make something that everyone needed. Something that would make Clayton and others prosper. Something that would show the users of this thing the power and the glory of God.

That night, Clayton was shaken awake, but no one was there but his wife sleeping next to him. Written on his wall in lights were a list of chemicals and formulations. He was in shock. He shook his wife and told her, "Honey, get up and get a pencil." She thought he was having a nightmare. She saw nothing on the wall. She found a pencil and a pad of paper, and Clayton read the writing on the wall to her. She looked up and asked, "Clayton, what’s going on?"

Clayton just didn’t know how to answer. He just didn’t know what was going on.

Clayton went out and got all the ingredients and equipment. He mixed up a batch and it foamed over onto his floor in the garage and he watched as this liquid cleaned up all the oil stains on the garage floor. He grabbed a broom and swept all around. The oil stains just disappeared. He thought to himself, "I guess God wants me to make soap."

So Clayton, having been already blessed with abundance, made up batches and batches of this soap and gave it away. For some 10 years, Clayton gave away his soap and over those ten years, the miracles began to occur.

People who bathed in it watched their eczema and psoriasis disappear. Rough skin vanished. Skin cancers vanished. People started brushing their teeth with it and their periodontal disease reversed. Then they started drinking it. Clayton removed the sudsing agent so people could drink it, and since both the soap and the neutralizer were clear, Clayton added seaweed to the soap to make it green.

People came to him with amazing stories on how their aches and pains were going away. It soon became apparent that this stuff either worked or it didn’t. And what it did was this: the soap and neutralizer together helped to detox the body and alkalize the terrain. People have sprayed the soap on plants and into the soil to rid the soil of whatever wasn’t supposed to be there. They reported record crops using the soap, and no need to use any pesticides.

In humans, reports of ridding themselves of yeast infections, fungal infections, and parasites.

There was nothing unnatural or artificial in Clayton’s formula. How is it put together? Here is an excerpt from Michael R Michaels’s book, God & Miracle Products:

After the surfactants have been mixed with water in their proper proportions, they are transformed using a multi-phase plasma arc process. Then the slurry is pumped through a radio-frequency descaling device that raises the electro kinetic energy of the treated surfactant molecules to demagnetize any previous magnetically stored information that may be detrimental to one’s health. The slurry is then exposed to a radionics unit tuned to the resonant signatures of a highly concentrated form of living Aloe Vera extract. This device imparts the resonant field information contained in all the known vitamins, essential amino acids, enzymes and all the known trace minerals in their natural beneficial proportions. This is basically a form of virtual programming that the cell interprets as the presence of beneficial nutrients. Remember, the current thinking in chemistry is that the resonant field information is doing the work and not the chemical substance in and of itself.

Lastly, all the participants in the company say a special prayer over the product before it is bottled. This may seem a little too esoteric for many people. All we can say is try it and watch the results. When questioned about the results people are obtaining from using the product, the creator’s reply is simply that "It is a spiritual thing. Accept its benefits, and give the glory to God."

Now if you understood that, great. If not, well, neither do I. I am not a scientist. Although I do know this about water: It retains things. Say your water had been contaminated by lead, and the lead was removed. Is the water safe for drinking? Yes…and no. The "energy" of that lead is still present. What Clayton did here was remove all traces of "memory" from his water.

And the products his company makes today? They all contain this special, neutralized water, and consist of natural, nontoxic products.

The soap can be used to bathe your baby or clean your oven.

And if you find this hard to believe, that God gave this man a formula, well then, don’t. Believe it was a dream or an hallucination. No matter what you believe, the objective truth is, this soap is a wonderful product.

The Science Behind Miracle II Products

First you must know about Surfactants.

A surfactant is a molecule that is polar at one end and non polar at the other. It is hydrophobic (water hating) at one end and hydrophilic (water loving) at the other. One end grabs onto water, the other onto a "substance" for transportation.

This is how a surfactant "pulls' oil from your clothing. One end of he surfactant is connected to water and the other connects to oil. And the water churns, the surfactant pulls the oil out of our clothes. (Why doesn't it attach to the clothing? Clothes have no charge!) 

It has been said that the one problem most naturopaths and vitamin pushers are trying to cure are the free radicals doing damage to our bodies. However, nearly every acid based organ system in our body needs these free radicals to carry out their jobs. Without free radicals we’d all be dead. The problem with the free radical theory is that it is not just free radicals that do damage to our system, but the combination of dehydration and free radicals. (There is another theory that mycotoxins are actually doing a lot more damage than free radicals, and that a lot of the damage ascribed to free radicals is really due to mycotoxins. See The Lost History of Medicine for more on this.)

Additionally, the process by which Miracle II soap is made involves the carbonization of doceyl sulfate (derived from a coconut) which lowers the surface tension of the water to which it is added.

So, what the Miracle II products are doing (according to laboratory tests) is this: they grab onto a water molecule at one end and a hemoglobin molecule at the other and this way water is dispersed and diffused through the body faster and at greater quantities, helped along by the lower surface tension.

Here is a quotation from the March 8, 1999 issue of Chemical Engineering News, a weekly publication serving the chemical industry:

"Sandia National Laboratories chemist Maher E. Tadros, in protective gear, sprays a foam that he and Sandia chemist Mark D. Tucker have developed to decontaminate chemical and biological warfare agents. The foam is a combination of a mild nucleophile such as hydrogen peroxide carbonates commonly found in toothpaste, a positively charged non-toxic surfactant often found in hair conditioners, and hydrotropes found in detergents. Hydrotropes found in detergents solubilize and catalyze the neutralization or the agents.

The foam reacts rapidly with the agents, is non-toxic and non-corrosive. . . ."

This is exactly what Miracle II Soap and Neutralizer do. They are surfactants that bring hydration into your body and neutralize the toxins they find along the way.

People ask all the time, "How are you so sure this stuff works?"

If it didn’t work, your government wouldn’t be trying to reverse engineer the stuff to figure out how to make it.

Negative Ions

As mentioned in our article on alkalinity, healthy bodies have a negative electrical charge. While searching the web for information on Béchamp, Bernard, and Enderlein, I came across an article at WebMD on negative ions called: Negative Ions Create Positive Vibes. 

The article points out that negative ions are (like gasses) odorless, tasteless, and invisible. But we CAN feel them. They charge us like a battery being recharged, and increase levels of our mood chemicals (serotonin). 

They are found in abundance in the mountains, at the beach, near waterfalls. All those places holistic healers tell us to visit for our health and well being. In a little book by Deepak Chopra about the seven spiritual guidelines, he tells us in one chapter to spend time in nature. Well, this is one reason we should spend time in nature, to gather up some negative ions, or as I like to put it: to recharge our batteries. 

The article quotes a Dr Michael Terman of Columbia University in New York as saying that waves pounding the surf and thunderstorms produce negative ions. The sun seems to do some of the work here to, as do the changing winds. 

And if you'll remember back to our water molecule and how it is broken apart into two ions, the one with the oxygen is negatively charged, so negative ions increase our alkalinity and bring oxygen into our bodies. Where there is oxygen, we won't find germs (because germs live without oxygen). 

Negative ion therapy is recommended for people suffering depression. We get negative ions by alkalizing our bodies. Additionally, there are mattresses now being made that give off negative ions. One such product is the Bio-Mat 2,000™. It is a mattress pad charged with negative ions and far infrared rays produced naturally by seventeen pounds of jade.

The Revici Method

We are currently working on an update to our 1995 Cancer Edition of the Wellness Directory of Minnesota. Many of the articles at this site are from that publication. One feature of that publication (that has not been put online) are some of the Geniuses in the field of medicine who fought both cancer and the system. It seems that when you have a cancer cure, the system comes down hard on you.

We’ve already looked at Roy Rife and what they did to him. This is the story of Dr Emanuel Revici.

Dr Revici was first and foremost an humanitarian. He treated many patients without charging for his services. He created his own medicines and his own therapies. He saw what others saw, but interpreted what he saw with an amazing mind.

He held a very high interest in the physiological side of medicine, or the terrain. He realized early on that detoxication of the terrain led to a higher pH and health. He invented a method of using the mineral selenium in doses that would normally kill a full grown person. Selenium was one of Revici’s secrets to detoxication of toxins in the human body. He even created a therapy that could detox the heroine out of an addict in just three days.

Perhaps this is an oversimplification of the original story, but to cut to the chase: Powerful figures from New York, the Board of Health, Sloan Kettering, all the big wigs in medicine in the New York area, got together with Dr Revici, honored him for developing this "cure" for drug addicts, threw him a party, made toasts and then quickly forgot about the good doctor and his "cure."

Some people have speculated on the reasons for summary dismissal of Dr Revici and his cure: it meant that the drug addict had to be put up in a hospital for three days (cost); that most drug addicts were the dregs of society in the first place; that they were minorities (Puerto Ricans, Blacks). Whatever the reasons, all of us are worse off for not having invested in this little project.

On the brighter side, Dr Revici cured cancer. That’s what his patients all said.

In his book, The Doctor Who Cures Cancer, William Kelly Eidem quotes Dr Robert Fishbein, MD: "Genius is seeing what everyone else sees and thinking what no one else thinks."

This statement describes a bit of how Dr Revici saw cancer. He discerned pain patterns in his patients. Some had pain at night, some during the day, some right after eating. He investigated these 24 hour cycles and how they affected the alkaline/acid balance in the body. He experimented with acid/alkaline balancing techniques and discovered that with some patients acidifying the patient helped and with others alkalizing the patient helped. Helped what? Fight the cancer? No, fight the pain.

To fight the cancer, Dr Revici began analyzing the various tissues found in tumors and discovered a number of lipids (fats) associated with the tumors. He also discovered that giving his patients certain fatty acids would penetrate the tumors with beneficial and therapeutic effects. He recognized early on in his career a connection between selenium and cancer. He began administering selenium to cancer patients in the forties. Only recently has the National Cancer Institute acknowledged the selenium/cancer connection.

He experimented first with animals and then with humans. From these experiments Dr Revici created medicines to fight cancer. His patients saw both subjective and objective positive results with their cancers. Some tumors disappeared, some shrunk, and some simply maintained while the patient went on to live a full and productive life, with the tumors still inside.

In one small study, there were 53 breast cancer patients. Only 12 survived and were pronounced cancer free, but most of the women in the study outlived their expectations using conventional therapies. Many got a lot longer term than was expected. Most important was not the quantity of life they got, but the quality of life. How many of us have had to watch a loved one suffer, go bald, and spend their final days in pain and discomfort?

Dr Revici published a book on his therapies in 1961. Immediately his method found it’s way onto The American Cancer Society’s list of Unproven Cancer Therapies. His book, which should have become standard reading for every medical student in America, just disappeared as the publisher was forced to burn all the copies due to lack of sales. Then the Health Inspectors made a visit and Dr Revici’s license to practice medicine was revoked over his record keeping methods.

Revici used the terms anabolic and catabolic to describe states of balance within our physiology. Our bodies continually fluctuate, ebb and flow, in the process of balancing our acidity or alkalinity. He noted that chronic, degenerative conditions resist the balance and lean one side of the scale, either anabolic or catabolic. (If you’ve ever been to a care home or hospice, the smell of ammonia is often present. The body creates ammonia to balance out the extreme acidity in the body. Ammonia, though alkaline, is far too alkaline to be healthy. It is the body’s last ditch effort to alkalize the tissues.)

Most of Revici’s cancer patients had already undergone unsuccessful conventional therapies. More often than not, Revici’s therapies could improve his patients’ quality of life, and put them into long term remission. He never turned down a patient. He treated the poor for free.

Though recognized throughout Europe (The Pasteur Institute) for his genius, he was scorned and vilified here in the US. Many times the State of New York tried to take his license away, but his patients came forward to block the State.

Dr Revici died at the age of 101, having had his license to practice medicine restored. His therapies are currently being examined at many universities. With a more favorable view of Alternative Medicine, many of Revici’s medicines might soon get an objective analysis.

His work is still being carried on at the Revici Life Science Center (200 West 57th Street, Suite 1205, New York, New York 10019 USA) where they offer many of Revici’s therapies. The telephone number is 212-246-5122.

He then went on to say he'd seen people walk in dead and walk out alive from Revici's clinic. Heller added that he didn't know how Revici did it. Heller's Sloan-Kettering office was only blocks from Revici's, yet in ten years he never went to find out the answer. Heller never did find a cure for cancer, nor did Sloan-Kettering."--Eidem

Spiritual Uplifting
The Completion of the Body/Mind/Spirit Triumvirate 

We've been getting lots of mails and thank-yous for this little section here, and so...we're going to continue it.

This first piece really caught my eye because I happen to believe that forgiveness is godliness.

FORGET THE DUCK!

Richard Hoefler, in his book WILL DAYLIGHT COME?, tells about two young children visiting their grandparents for the summer. Johnny was given his first slingshot. He practiced shooting in the woods, but missed everything he aimed at. 

As he returned to Grandma's back yard, however, he spied her pet duck. It wasn't the only duck she kept, but it was her favorite. On an impulse he took aim and let it fly. This time he didn't miss. His stone struck and killed the duck.

The boy panicked. He didn't mean to hurt the bird -- he was even sure he'd miss!  But he had killed it. His panic grew to desperation and he hid the duck in the woodpile, only to look up and see his sister. Sally had seen it all, but she said nothing to her grandparents. 

After lunch that day Grandma said, "Sally, let's wash the dishes." Sally said, "Johnny told me he wanted to help in the kitchen today. Didn't you Johnny?" She whispered to him, "Remember the duck." So Johnny did the dishes.

Later Grandpa asked if the children wanted to go fishing. Grandma said, "I'm sorry, but I need Sally to help make supper." Sally smiled and said, "That's all taken care of, Johnny wants to do it." Again she whispered, "Remember the duck." Johnny stayed while Sally went fishing.

Johnny did both his chores and Sally's for several days, and could stand it no longer. He confessed to Grandma that he'd killed the duck. 

She said, "I know Johnny." She gave him a big hug and added, "I was standing at the window and saw the whole thing. But because I love you, I forgave you. I just wondered how long you would let Sally make a slave of you."

His grandmother was more ready to forgive then he was even to ask for forgiveness. The arms of many people, and I believe God, are open wide, waiting for us to experience a warm embrace of acceptance. But a disturbing inner voice often whispers, "Remember the duck. Remember the duck." Some people live their whole lives enslaved by that voice that says, "Remember the duck." They never let themselves be forgiven!

They don't know the meaning of deep peace. They are seldom free of guilt and feel as if happiness only comes to others more deserving.

What does it matter if the whole world were to love us, and accept us in spite of our failings, if we persist in feeling badly? Are you sick of feeling sick about the mistakes of your past?

Maybe it's time to forget the duck! After you've done all you can to rectify the past, then it's time to put it down. Forget the duck! After all...you, too, deserve to be happy.

YESTERDAY AND TOMORROW

There are two days in every week about which we should not worry—two days that should be kept free from any fear and apprehension. One of these days is Yesterday, with its mistakes and cares, its aches and pains, its faults and blunders. Yesterday has passed forever beyond our control. All the money in the world cannot bring back Yesterday. We cannot undo a single act we performed; we cannot erase a single word we said; we cannot rectify a single mistake. Yesterday has passed forever beyond recall. Let it go.

The other day we should not worry about is Tomorrow, with its possible adversities, its burdens, its large promise, and poor performance. Ninety-nine percent of Tomorrow's worries, never occur. Tomorrow also is beyond our control. Tomorrow's sun will rise either in splendor or behind a mass of clouds—but it will rise. And until it does, we have no stake in Tomorrow, because it is as yet unborn.

Yesterday and Tomorrow are futile worries. Let us, therefore, resolve to journey no more than one day at a time.

Wayne Dyer and Eckhart Tolle both point out that God is doing Now what He did an hour ago or a century ago, and He's doing now what He will be doing an hour from now or a century from now. When you live in the present you live with God. The moment you leave the present you are back on earth with your earthly dramas and earthly problems. 

* * *

Just a thought . . .

Look out your window as you drive. Look at the young housewife jogging, the kids playing in their yards, a father returning from work, or a grandpa bouncing a child on his knee. 

There will always be young housewives jogging, children playing, fathers returning from work, and grandpas bouncing children on their knees. There will always be someone dying and someone being born. We all grow and change and leave this planet.

We all grow and change but something inside stays the same age, never grows, never tires. Something inside each and every one of us is constant. 

One secret to happiness in this world is allowing that unchanging part inside to govern the actions of the person changing on the outside. 

Think about it.

Weird Science

Doctors at Chimkent (Kazakhstan) Children's Hospital told the BBC in April that they had removed a fetus from a 7-year-old boy; it was thought at first to be a cyst but when removed, actually had hair and bones and is now believed to have been the boy's Siamese twin that grew in the wrong place. And in May, Groote Schnuur Hospital (Cape Town, South Africa) reported only the 15th documented case of a fetus developing in the mother's liver (and the fourth to survive). [BBC News, 4-30-03] [BBC News, 5-23-03]

Curator Mark Norman of Australia's Melbourne Museum revealed in January that he had captured and photographed the male of the world's most sexually unequal species. When the blanket octopus male (2 cm long) mates with the female (6 feet long), it uses a special extension arm to transfer sperm from its penis (after which the male dies). Females, which may weigh 10,000 times as much as the males, are typically found with several such extension arms lodged inside them. [The Age (Melbourne), 1-23-03]

Judge Sentences Offenders to Tai Chi

A Sante Fe judge, under a new alternative sentencing program, has ordered her offenders to complete a Tai Chi class complete with a Japanese-style tea service and meditation (with acupuncture). 

The instructor of the class, also a psychologist for the dept of corrections, feels that many offenders can benefit from tai chi and meditation, especially those with a propensity towards violence. 

In Tai Chi, the practitioner fights the "inner" opponent, thus teaching the practitioner impulse control. 

And how is it working? Practitioners/offenders feel it's relaxing and balancing and helping them to think through their problems. And it's better than picking up trash along the highways. [Albuquerque Journal]

 

Laughter - The Best Medicine

As the comedian said, I'd like to leave you laughing. So please. Think of something funny as I walk off the stage. 

Laughter increases your immunoglobulins, your T-Cell counts, and interleukins. So....let's get with it.

Dr. Laura Schlessinger is a U.S. psychologist/radio personality who dispenses advice to people who call in to her radio show. Recently, she said that homosexuality is an abomination according to Leviticus 18:22 and cannot be condoned in any circumstance. The following is an open letter to Dr. Laura penned by a U.S. resident:

Dear Dr. Laura:

Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God's Law. I have learned a great deal from your show, and I try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can.

When someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination. End of debate.

I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some of the other specific laws and how to follow them.

a) When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odor for the Lord (Lev. 1:9). The problem is my neighbors. They claim the odor is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?

b) I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?

c) I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual uncleanliness (Lev. 15:19-24). The problem is, how do I tell? I have tried asking, but many women take offense.

d) Lev. 25:44 states that I may indeed possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighboring nations. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can't I own Canadians?

e) I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself or will you arrange it for me?

f) A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an abomination (Lev. 11:10), it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don't agree. Can you settle this?

g) Lev. 21:20 Clearly states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle room here?

h) Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev.19:27. How should they die?

i) I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?

j) My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev. 19:19 by planting two different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also tends to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them? (Lev.24:10-16) Couldn't we just burn them to death at a private family affair like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws? (Lev. 20:14)

I know you have studied these things extensively, so I am confident you can help. Thank you again for reminding us that God's word is eternal and unchanging.

Your devoted disciple and adoring fan.

As an ex pilot, I love these...

Here are some conversations that airline passengers normally will never hear, thank the good Lord. The following are accounts of actual exchanges between airline pilots and control towers from around the world:

=============

While taxiing at London Gatwick, the crew of a US Air flight departing for Ft. Lauderdale made a wrong turn and came nose to nose with a United 727.

An irate female ground controller lashed out at the US Air crew, screaming: "US Air 2771, where the hell are you going?! I told you to turn right onto Charlie taxiway! You turned right on Delta! Stop right there. I know it's difficult for you to tell the difference between C' and D', but get it right!"

Continuing her rage to the embarrassed crew, she was now shouting hysterically: "God! Now you've screwed everything up! It'll take forever to sort this out! You stay right there and don't move till I tell you to! You can expect progressive taxi instructions in about half an hour and I want you to go exactly where I tell you, when I tell you, and how I tell you! You got that, US Air 2771?"

"Yes ma'am," the humbled crew responded.

Naturally, the ground control communications frequency fell terribly silent after the verbal bashing of US Air 2771. Nobody wanted to chance engaging the irate ground controller in her current state of mind. Tension in every cockpit out in Gatwick was definitely running high.

Just then an unknown pilot broke the silence and keyed his microphone, asking:

"Wasn't I married to you once?"

===========

A DC-10 had come in a little hot and thus had an exceedingly long roll out after touching down.

San Jose Tower Noted: "American 751, make a hard right turn at the end of the runway, if you are able... If not able, take the Guadalupe exit off Highway 101, make a right at the lights and return to the airport."

===========

Tower: "Eastern 702, cleared for takeoff, contact Departure on frequency 124.7"

Eastern 702: "Tower, Eastern 702 switching to Departure. By the way, after we lifted off we saw some kind of dead animal on the far end of the runway."

Tower: "Continental 635, cleared for takeoff behind Eastern 702, contact Departure on frequency 124.7. Did you copy that report from Eastern 702?"

Continental 635: "Continental 635, cleared for takeoff, roger; and yes, we copied Eastern... we've already notified our caterers"

===========

The German air controllers at Frankfurt Airport are renowned as a short-tempered lot. They not only expect one to know one's gate parking location, but how to get there without any assistance from them. So it was with some amusement that we (a Pan Am 747) listened to the following exchange between Frankfurt ground control and a British Airways 747, call sign "Speedbird 206":

Speedbird 206: "Frankfurt, Speedbird 206 clear of active runway."

Ground: "Speedbird 206. Taxi to gate Alpha One-Seven."

The BA 747 pulled onto the main taxiway and slowed to a stop.

Ground: "Speedbird, do you not know vhere you are going?"

Speedbird 206: "Stand by, Ground, I'm looking up our gate location now."

Ground (with quite arrogant impatience): "Speedbird 206, have you not been to Frankfurt before?"

Speedbird 206 (coolly): "Yes, twice in 1944 but I didn't stop."

===========

A Pan Am 727 flight waiting for start clearance in Munich overheard the following:

Lufthansa (in German): "Ground, what is our start clearance time?"

Ground (in English): "If you want an answer you must speak in English."

Lufthansa (in English): "I am a German, flying a German airplane, in Germany. Why must I speak English?"

Unknown voice from another plane (in a beautiful British accent): "Because you lost the bloody war!"

People often say that truth is stranger than fiction...

A man comes into the ER and yells, "My wife's going to have her baby in the cab!" I grabbed my stuff, rushed out to the cab, lifted the lady's dress, and began to take off her underwear. Suddenly I noticed that there were several cabs, and I was in the wrong one.

Dr. Mark MacDonald, San Antonio, TX

At the beginning of my shift I placed a stethoscope on an elderly and slightly deaf female patient's anterior chest wall. "Big breaths," I instructed. "Yes, they used to be," remorsefully replied the patient.

Dr. Richard Byrnes, Seattle, WA

One day I had to be the bearer of bad news when I told a wife that her husband had died of a massive myocardial infarct. Not more than five minutes later, I heard her reporting to the rest of the family that he had died of a "massive internal fart."

Dr. Susan Steinberg, Manitoba, Canada

I was performing a complete physical, including the visual acuity test. I placed the patient twenty feet from the chart and began, "Cover your right eye with your hand." He read the 20/20 line perfectly. "Now yourleft." Again, a flawless read. "Now both," I requested. There was silence. He couldn't even read the large E on the top line. I turned and discovered that he had done exactly what I had asked; he was standing there with both his eyes covered. I was laughing too hard to finish the exam.

Dr. Matthew Theodropolous, Worcester, MA

During a patient's two week follow-up appointment with his cardiologist, he informed me, his doctor, that he was having trouble with one of his medications. "Which one?" I asked. "The patch. The nurse told me to put on a new one every six hours and now I'm running out of places to put it!" I had him quickly undress and discovered what I hoped I wouldn't see. Yes, the man had over fifty patches on his body! Now the instructions include removal of the old patch before applying a new one.

Dr. Rebecca St. Clair, Norfolk, VA

While acquainting myself with a new elderly patient, I asked, "How long have you been bedridden?" After a look of complete confusion she answered ... "Why, not for about twenty years -- when my husband was alive."

Dr. Steven Swanson, Corvallis, OR

I was caring for a woman from Kentucky and asked, "So, how's your breakfast this morning?" "It's very good, except for the Kentucky Jelly. I can't seem to get used to the taste," the patient replied. I then asked to see the jelly and the woman produced a foil packet labeled "KY Jelly."

Dr. Leonard Kransdorf, Detroit, MI

And Finally . . . . .
A new, young MD doing his residency in OB was quite embarrassed performing female pelvic exams. To cover his embarrassment he had unconsciously formed a habit of whistling softly. The middle aged lady upon whom he was performing this exam suddenly burst out laughing and further embarrassed him. He looked up from his work and sheepishly said, "I'm sorry. Was I tickling you?" She replied, "No doctor, but the song you were whistling was 'I wish I was an Oscar Meyer Wiener'."

***

A young doctor had moved out to a small community to replace a doctor who was retiring. The older doctor suggested the young one accompany him on his rounds so the community could become used to a new doctor. 

At the first house a woman complained, "I've been a little sick to my stomach."  The older doctor said, "Well, you've probably been overdoing the fresh fruit. Why not cut back on the amount you've been eating and see if that does the trick?" 

As they left the younger man said, "You didn't even examine that woman.    How'd you come to your diagnosis so quickly?"

"I didn't  have to. You noticed I dropped my stethoscope on the floor in there?  When I bent over to pick it up, I noticed a half dozen banana peels in the trash.   That was what was probably making her sick." 

"Huh," the younger doctor  said, "Pretty clever. I think I'll try that at the next house."

 Arriving at the next house, they spent several minutes talking with a younger  woman.  She complained that she just didn't have the energy she once did. "I'm feeling terribly run down lately." "You've probably been doing too much work for the church," the younger doctor told her. "Perhaps you should cut back a bit and see if that helps." 

As they left, the elder doc said, "Your diagnosis is almost certainly correct, but how did you arrive at it?

"Well just like you did at the last house, I dropped my stethoscope and when I bent down to retrieve it, I noticed the preacher  under the bed."

***

The following quotes were taken from actual medical records as dictated by physicians.

By the time he was admitted, his rapid heart had stopped, and he was feeling better.

Patient has chest pain if she lies on her left side for over a year.

On the second day the knee was better and on the third day it had completely disappeared.

The patient has been depressed ever since she began seeing me in 1983.

The patient is tearful and crying constantly. She also appears to be depressed.

Discharge status: Alive but without permission.

Healthy-appearing decrepit sixty-nine-year-old male, mentally alert but forgetful.

The patient refused an autopsy.

The patient has no past history of suicides.

The patient expired on the floor uneventfully.

Patient has left his white blood cells at another hospital.

The patient's past medical history has been remarkably insignificant, with only a forty-pound weight gain in the past three days.

She slipped on the ice and apparently her legs went in separate directions in early December.

Between you and me, we ought to be able to get this lady pregnant.

The patient was in his usual state of good health until his airplane ran out of gas and crashed.

She is numb from her toes down.

The skin was moist and dry.

Patient was alert and unresponsive.

When she fainted, her eyes rolled around the room.

A woman, calling a local hospital, said, "Hello, I'd like to talk with the person who gives the information regarding your patients. I'd like to find out if the patient is getting better, or doing as expected, or is getting worse."

The voice on the other end of the line said, "What is the patient's name and room number?"

She said, "Sarah Finkel, in Room 302...

"I will connect you with the nursing station."

"3-A Nursing Station.  How can I help You?"

"I would like to know the condition of Sarah Finkel in Room 302."

"Just a moment. Let me look at her records. Oh, yes.  Mrs. Finkel is doing very well.  In fact, she's had two full meals, her blood pressure is fine, her blood work just came back as normal, she's going to be taken off the heart monitor in a couple of hours and if she continues this improvement, Dr. Cohen is going to send her home Tuesday at twelve o'clock."

The woman said, "Thank God!  That's wonderful!  Oh!  That's fantastic, that's wonderful news!"

The nurse said, "From your enthusiasm, I take it you must be a close family member or a very close friend!"

"Not exactly, I'm Sarah Finkel in 302!  Nobody here tells me sh*t!"

Answer 

Since 1996, how many reports of infections or deaths due 
to nosocomial infections (those picked up in hospitals) have 
been voluntarily reported by the hospitals?

The answer is a: 10. Hospitals and doctors hate to admit to errors. It has been said that hospital staff members should attend the same types of classes that pilots must attend. Pilots are much more likely to admit to errors than physicians or nurses. Pilots have many more lives in their hands than physicians and nurses. 

Comparing the airline industry to our medical industry highlights some very glaring and terrifying facts. One being the following:

The number of people killed by medicine equals an airbus crash a day.

Again, medicine is not supported by science, it has taken on the aura of a religion. (Read This)

When medicine quits being a business and refocuses on healing, you will see the numbers of deaths and injuries start to drop, but not sooner. 

 

 

Blessings,
