Bypassing Bypass, published in 2002
There is a ton of crap on the
market. Everyone wants to make a buck, and the word holistic
is a catch phrase, a hook, but slowly it becomes an empty,
meaningless word. (See What is
We cannot advise you on what to
take or not to take, but we will tell you our favorites. It is up to
you, working with a professional, to find your own program, maintain
it, and reach your goals. There's a saying: “Obstacles are what you
see when you drop your focus from your goals.”
The following are listed in no
particular order. Many of the companies listed have been in contact
with us and have been kind enough to furnish us with extensive
literature on the effectiveness of their products in laboratory or
clinical studies. We have tried many all of the products listed, and
you can presume that the order they are presented to you are from
the most familiar, most liked, to least familiar, and we really
can't say anything about it beyond what we've been told.
Omegasentials™ is our
favorite product. It is a food. Let your medicine be your food. This
medicine/food saves lives, period.
Omegasentials™ takes Dr Johanna
Budwig’s work and builds on it raising the bar on all nutritional
Omegasentials™ is a Minnesota
product. Omega-3 fatty acids have a long history here in Minnesota:
they were first discovered at the University of Minnesota in the
late twenties, and some 20 years later were named “Omega-3” fatty
Stan Mann is the genius behind
Omegasentials™. He invented a process for stabilizing milled
flaxseed (it normally goes rancid in just fifteen minutes at room
temperature). To this he added rice bran, many other nutritional
co-factors to aid in fatty acid uptake (bioavilability) and
metabolism such as magnesium, B6, B12, vitamin C, vitamin E, and
zinc, plus antioxidant spectrums to help control the living fire
that is created when your cells are suddenly hit with this “super”
oxidative nutrition. When cells find super nutrition, they dump
their toxins immediately and without antioxidants to help clean up,
you could get sick and feel terribly rotten from this process.
Stan is constantly improving the
product. For instance, Stan is a Vegan. He does not eat any animal
products. However, he realizes how important DHA (docosahexaenoic
acid) and EPA (eiocosapentaenoic acid) is to
proper brain function and so he has added a them to the
Omegasentials™. DHA and EPA are “fish oils.” Just recently he’s
informed us that he’s added enzymes to it to make it even more
bioavailable (it is already water-soluble) and increase the uptake
Omegasentials are available to
our readers (and any lucky surfer to run across their site) at a
discount. Simply the Best is the name of the company, and the name,
Simply the Best came about because of our discovery of
Omegasentials, which we called in an early paper on it, “simply the
best form of omega-3s on this planet.”
Standard Process Labs is
one of the best vitamin companies in the world. They might even be
the best. Everything they produce comes from organic foods. They’ve
been around a long, long time, making the best vitamins in the
world. However, you can purchase them only from a licensed health
care practitioner. Now Dr Bruce West has arranged with us to send
you a special report on Heart Health (which was updated while we
were writing this) that shows you his recommendations. You can then
order his protocols (consisting of vitamins and supplements from
Standard Process Labs) as long as you are under the care of a
professional health care provider. He and we do not approve of
self-diagnosing or self-treating. Contact Immune Systems, at
800.231.8063. This is Dr West’s company and they will help you get
Wobenzym® and Rutozym™
are already covered quite well in this publication. What more can we
say about them? Enzymes are the sparks of life. No chemical action
or reaction can take place in your body without enzymes. The human
body was designed to be a self-healing organism, but the condi- tion
of our environment today has pushed our bodies to their limits.
These systemic enzymes will help to clear up the junk in our bodies,
and clean up our thick, hypercoagulable blood. Every sick person
must be on systemic enzymes, and every well person should too, if
only to prevent chronic degenerative disease.

failing heart. After a heart attack and facing bypass surgery, Jim
Strauss decided to concoct his own formula combining herbs that

bypass surgery. The formula? Garlic, cayenne, bilberry, motherwort,

Dr Richard Schulze’s Special
Cayenne Tincture contains the fresh juice of Organic Habanero
peppers, California Jalapeño, African Bird Peppers, Chinese, Korean,
Thai and Japanese peppers and should be in every first aid pack.
Just as Dr Christopher learned that he could stop a heart attack in
under a minute with a cup of cayenne tea, Dr Richard Schulze found
that his tincture of Capsicum from mixed hot peppers can do the
same. Is it hot? You bet. And as we pointed out earlier, Dr Schulze
tells us, “You cannot die of a heart attack with a red face.”
Dr Schulze often tells the story
of how he was waiting for a patient who was late, when he chanced to
look out the window and saw his patient, in the front seat of his
car, mouth open and passed out. He grabbed his tincture and ran to
the car, whipped open the door and squirted two shots into his
patient’s open mouth. He pulled the patient forward so he wouldn’t
choke on the liquid (it doesn’t have to go down your throat to work)
and got him to the hospital. En route, the patient woke up with
tears in his eyes. Upon examination at the hospital, the patient was
released with no apparent heart damage. Dr Schulze’s company is
called the American Botanical Pharmacy and their phone number is
800-HERBDOC; web site:
www.herbdoc.com . He even has a free newsletter for you.
Heart Food Company makes
the Heart Food Caps. The company was started by one of our hometown
families from Minnesota, Dick and Paula Quinn. Dick’s story is
interesting. He wrote it up in a book his wife Paula sent us called
Left for Dead. He started the Heart Food Company to help others heal
themselves. They make a good product, it’s found in nearly all
health food stores, and if you can’t find it just call
In Paula’s own words: My
credentials are limited to having been the wife of Dick Quinn,
author of the best selling book Left for Dead and founder of
the company I now operate, The Heart Foods Company, Inc. Dick
discovered the healing benefits of cayenne after an emergency bypass
failed to help his broken heart. As Dick would say, “First I had a
heart attack and then I was subjected to an “attack on the heart”
more commonly referred to as coronary bypass surgery.” Through a
series of events chronicled in his book, Dick discovered the more
natural way of healing. His desire to heal his heart through natural
means was the beginning of his quest to discover what herbalists had
known for years, namely, that given the proper nutrition the body
has the ability to heal itself. Dick continued this journey which I
referred to as his “magnificent obsession” until the day he died. He
was a man of great conviction and literally sacrificed his life for
what he believed in.
A lot has been written and
documented about the healing benefits of cayenne; that’s why at The
Heart Foods Company we use the premiere pepper, 130,000 heat unit
African Birdseye. The value of African Birdseye cayenne is supported
in Dr. John Christoper’s book Capsicum. The Heart Foods
Company continues to manufacture Dick’s original high potency
cayenne formulas exactly as Dick did. We believe that if the
nutrients found in cayenne are what your body needs you will feel
the difference. Be good to your heart and give us a call at
800-CAYENNE (800-229-3663) or visit our website, www.heartfoods.com.

Freeze-Frame is five-step
relaxation technique that creates entrainment of your nervous
system. The results are so spectacular, that our military has
trained thousands of officers at it (even more corporate officers
are flying to the training center in California to learn it).
The HeartMath Institute,
along with Stanford University, conducted some intense leading-edge
research between the heart and brain and the ways in which this
relationship affects physical, mental and emotional health and human
performance. The results of these studies are no less than
astounding. The results of these studies is called Freeze-Frame, a
60 second cure for high blood pressure while boosting your immune
system, and ridding yourself of headaches, indigestion, insomnia,
heartburn, and more.
The field of
psychoneuroimmunology took a quantum leap at the HeartMath Institute
when results of increased energy and mental clarity were flowing in
from all who had learned this very simple technique. The
Freeze-Frame program can be ordered by calling 800.450.9111 or by
