The common respiratory bacteria Chlamydia pneumoniae may play a key role in coronary artery disease, the leading cause of death.
The healthy human gut contains 3 pounds of friendly bacteria. These are destroyed by chlorinated drinking water and by antibiotics (including residues of antibiotics in non-organic meat and dairy), with unfortunate consequences.
The use of antibiotics often results in increased susceptibility to infection by fungi, yeasts, bacteria, viruses and parasites.
In the past 100 years, reductions of infectious disease are primarily due to improvements in hygiene and better diet (due to the invention of refrigeration and modern transportation).
Epidemiological studies show that medical treatment and immunization have made virtually no contribution to the decline of infectious disease.
Antibiotics are ineffective against viruses.
Viruses are "anaerobic" and thrive in the absence of oxygen.

Colloidal silver kills bacteria and, if the silver particles are small enough, may even kill viruses. It is the electrical charge of the colloidal silver particles that kills bacteria and viruses. Do a search of the Internet for "colloidal silver machine" and learn how to make your own at home.
Electrical charge to kill viruses can also be created by other means.

Intravenous hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is an effective treatment for infectious diseases and may even be of value for emphysema, heart disease, arthritis, cancer and many other diseases. All body tissues contain catalase, and hydrogen peroxide in the presence of catalase is reduced to oxygen and water.
Here is another alternative to antibiotics for bacterial infection. Some viruses called "bacteriophage" are friendly in the sense that they eat bacteria. Every bacteria has a specific bacteriophage that will eat it. Phages can be isolated from hospital sewage, cultured to increase their quantity, and then can be eaten or applied in the form of a nasal mist or enema. Due to the specificity of the bacteriophage to each bacteria, bacteriophages may never be profitable (compared to "broad-spectrum" drugs) for mass production by drug companies. However, every region of the world would benefit by having a publicly funded facility for isolating and culturing bacteriophages. "Phage therapy" is a low cost and highly effective medical treatment that every country can afford. The treatment costs about the same as a culture of yogurt. For over fifty years the procedures for finding and using phages have been developed at the T'blisi Institute in the former Soviet state of Georgia. The T'blisi institute has fallen into disrepair since the disintegration of the Soviet Union and is badly in need of funds.
Robert E. Lincoln, M.D. used bacteriophage to successfully treat many diseases, including cancer. In 1975, Dr. Lincoln's methods were removed from the ACS Unproven Methods list, however, it is virtually impossible for patients to receive bacteriophage treatment in the United States. - Moss, pages 114-115.
Every cell has a resonance frequency. Knowledge of these frequencies for bacteria, viruses, etc. can be used to generate the right frequency to kill the organism. The frequency generator can use sound or electro-
magnetism (light) frequencies. This is the technology that Dr. Rife developed back in the 1930's to cure cancer and other diseases. He would biopsy the cancer cells, find their resonance frequency in the test tube and then expose the body of the cancer patient to that frequency. His results were excellent. His work was destroyed by the medical establishment. (Resonance therapy is not good for chemical company sales).
There is even a certain frequency that works as an anesthetic. (Also not good for chemical company sales).
Radio anesthesia frequencies are also effective in farmers fields to prevent germination of weeds! (Again, not good for chemical company sales).
The vibration of crystals can reduce the cluster size of water.
Each crystal vibrates at a certain precise frequency. This is why quartz crystal is used in a watch. The purity of the crystal is more important than its size. The ancient Vedic science of Jyotish used these frequencies to promote health and vitality. The crystal is worn touching the skin. The Jyotishi can select the proper crystal(s) for each individual. The Sanskrit word "jyotish" means "brilliance" or "inner light" and refers to a level of consciousness where everything is known with mathematical precision.

Normal light is incoherent light, vibrating in random directions and phases over a wide range of frequencies. In contrast, coherent light vibrates in phase. Coherent light interacts with matter very strongly, and that is when remarkable things can happen.
During meditation subtle changes occur in how the nervous system functions, resulting in increased coherence. TM meditators have significantly more coherence and less disease.
The human body is an antenna. It can both receive and broadcast. The secret lies in coherence. Coherent light (the laser) can travel to the moon and back. Likewise, coherent influences from the human nervous system can radiate into the environment for a great distance. Meditators find that their meditation is "deeper" when they meditate together. They receive coherence from each other, enjoy a "deeper" meditation, and then broadcast greater coherence back.

"Fiber helps to prevent constipation, colon cancer, gall bladder disease, heart attacks, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and overweight. Fiber is the structural material in plants that cannot be broken down by your enzyme systems. When you eat fruits, vegetables, whole grains and beans, fiber helps you to control your weight because it cannot be absorbed and makes you feel full without contributing calories. It lowers high blood pressure by helping you to lose weight. It prevents heart attacks and gall bladder disease by lowering cholesterol by binding to bile acids in your intestines and carrying them from your body. Your liver manufactures cholesterol from bile acids. By preventing the absorption of bile acids, it prevents gall stones from forming. Fiber prevents constipation by holding water in your colon and softening waste. It prevents colon cancer by moving cancer causing chemicals faster through your colon." - Dr. Gabe Mirkin
Oatmeal is an excellent source of soluble and insoluble fiber. The soluble fiber in oatmeal is mostly beta 1,3 glucan which stimulates the white blood cells known as macrophages and neutrophils that recognize and destroy cancer cells, viruses, etc.
If you are already healthy and want a juice that contains lots of fiber, the
Vitamix Total Nutrition Centre (2
Variable speed model) is excellent. Just cover the organic fruits or vegetables with water and the Vitamix will convert then to a delicious veggie shake or fruit smoothie. If you freeze the fruits and replace the water with ice, the result is fresh ice sherbet. The Vitamix will even blend in apple seeds which contain vitamin b17, so we put in the whole apple including the core.
You can also make juice in your blender. Chop the fruits or vegetables and put them in the blender. Cover them with water (without water you end up with a mush). Then blend it.
Making your juices this way is EASY (you need to wash very few fruits or vegetables), ECONOMICAL (virtually none of the fruit or vegetable is discarded), and HEALTHY (you consume the whole fruit or vegetable). You can liquefy and drink any fruit or vegetable that you can eat raw. By replacing the cold water with hot water from your kettle, you can make a hot beverage or uncooked soup. If you are on your third set of teeth, knowing how to use your kitchen blender in this manner can vastly improve your nutrition.
Your blender is not as powerful as a Vitamix, so it is probably a good idea not to try to make ice cream or sherbet in your blender.
We like to make our own "V8" juice using 8 different
veggies from the fridge plus water and blend them in the Vitamix.

Whey powder can be a good addition to your smoothie. "Several components of whey - including the immunoglobulins, lactoferrin, lactoferricin, sphingolipids, lactoperoxidase, and glycomacropeptides - can inhibit the growth of a wide range of bacteria, fungi, yeast, and protozoa." - Dr. David Williams Alternatives April 2005 page 171. Whey powder contains a lot of milk sugar (lactose) and you may find whey powder with added lactase easier to digest. Lactase is the enzyme that digests lactose.
We prefer organic, cold-processed whey powder.
Lactoferrin is found in colostrum, which is the
initial breast milk. Lactoferrin turns on genes that initiate your immune
response. If you were never breast fed, you might consider supplementing
your diet with lactoferrin for a month or two. Lactoferrin is
safe to consume, and some people receive great benefit from it.

Potassium and Sodium
Potassium is an essential element that acts in many ways to improve cell structure, assists the kidneys to detoxify blood and maintains the alkaline/acid ratio in the blood and body tissues.
The ratio of potassium/sodium is now generating great interest. As early as 1920 a German physician, Dr. Max Gerson, was claiming that many chronic illnesses could be related to an imbalance between potassium and sodium.
We should, according to Gerson, have a potassium to sodium intake of about 4:1.
His theory was that potassium rich foods would generate and activate the white cells within the body - these are the cells that attack and destroy cancer and other illness related cells.
Being interested by Gerson's work and conclusions, I decided to seek out other expert views. Through my friend in Singapore, Robert Yam, I was to contact Dr. Lai Chiu-Nan, who now resides in America, but is still highly recognized within Asia for her research and knowledge about cancer and its treatment. Dr. Lai holds a PhD in chemistry and has written a book, 'The Pursuit of Life'. I was fascinated with what
Dr. Lai had to say about potassium and sodium:
"Let me emphasize the importance of the potassium/sodium ratio. In our research it was found that increasing the potassium level in the growth media can revert cancer cells to normal cells. The best potassium source in food is vegetables. The high potassium foods are vegetables and fruits. The poor potassium sources are animal or processed food."
Dry Lai went on to say:
"For cells to perform normally, they need to concentrate potassium and expel sodium. In the cells, potassium to sodium ratio is about 10 times. When cell membranes are damaged, potassium is leaked and the cells start to divide. Dividing cells and cancer cells have a lower ratio of potassium to sodium compared to normal cells. That cancer cells grow in an uncontrolled manner is probably related to the lowered potassium-sodium ratio...
...Why am I emphasizing the ratio of potassium and sodium in food? Because it plays a role not only in cancer but also in high blood pressure, heart disease, and diabetes."
Dry Lai also found during her research that in the U.S. the average intake of potassium over sodium is about 0.7; less than the body constitution, which is around 2:1. Cancer, heart disease and diabetes are common in the U.S., and can be attributed to this factor in the diet. Chinese in general eat more rice and vegetables, and it appears their risk of getting these diseases is less.
If you think your family regularly has a food balance of 4:1 of potassium over sodium, just read the ingredients section on almost any packaged food (including cereals) in your pantry, but this time don't look just for cholesterol and fat content, but examine the ratio between potassium and sodium. The findings will shock you.
In fact, one of the world's leading brands of corn flakes boasts a ratio of 29mg potassium to 280mg sodium for every serving!
- Ross Taylor, Living Simply With Cancer, pages 38 - 39.
"The problem for those with high blood pressure isn't sodium, it's a lack of balance between sodium and potassium levels. More than 25 separate studies show how increasing potassium intake (without decreasing the sodium) is an effective way to lower blood pressure. One of those studies demonstrated that with just one daily serving of a potassium-rich food the risk of death by stroke may be cut by as much as half." - Robert C. Atkins, M.D., author of Dr. Atkins' Diet Revolution.

The Gerson dietary protocol consists of detoxification with raw vegetable and fruit juices, raw calf liver juice (now discontinued because of the toxic chemical residue now found in calves), a vegetarian diet and caffeine implants in the form of coffee enemas to provoke the liver and open the bile ducts.
Eulogy for Dr. Gerson
I see in him one of the most eminent medical geniuses in the history of medicine. Many of his basic ideas have been adopted without having his name connected with them. Yet he has achieved more than seemed possible under adverse conditions. He leaves a legacy which commands attention and which will assure him his due place. Those whom he cured will now attest to the truth of his ideas.
- Dr. Albert Schweitzer, Nobel Prize winner and Gerson patient.
Vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid) is
anti-viral. Most species of
plants and animals use enzymes to manufacture vitamin C from simple sugars
within their own body. However, in the long course of evolution, the gene
responsible for vitamin C production became non-functional in certain
species. This is why guinea pigs, primates and humans lack the enzyme that
is needed for the last step in vitamin C production. As a consequence, for
these species vitamin C is an essential nutrient in the
appropriate dose of vitamin C is "enough C to be symptom free, whatever
that amount may be." Based on observed vitamin C production in other
species, humans require about one gram of vitamin C for each 50 pounds of
body weight every day. If vitamin C has been lacking from the diet and a
viral infection has taken hold, one gram
of vitamin C per hour with juice each waking hour of the day may be helpful.
However, prevention is always better than a cure, so it is simply a fact of
human life that vitamin C is a necessary part of the daily diet.
Starting in the 1940's until the early 1970's,
Dr. Frederick R. Klenner
used vitamin C to treat viral infections in over 3,000 patients. He
wrote 27 papers on this use of vitamin C that were published in
various medical journals. From these papers we find that Dr. Klenner
found vitamin C useful in the treatment of poliomyelitis, chicken
pox, measles, mumps, scurvy, diphtheria, hemolytic streptococcus,
herpes simplex, herpes zoster, influenza, colds, viral encephalitis,
pneumonia, cold sores, canker sore, viral hepatitis, mononucleosis,
diphtheria, bacillary dysentery, pancreatitis (acute and chronic),
cardiovascular disease, hypermenorrhea, ulcers (peptic and
duodenal), postoperative and radiation sickness, rheumatic fever,
scarlet fever, tularemia, whooping cough, tuberculosis, rheumatic
fever, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, trichinosis, tetanus,
urethritis, chronic cystitis, cholesterol, arteriosclerosis,
cavities, corneal ulcers, and more.
A lingering cold or flu acts to deplete vitamin C. The
lack of vitamin C weakens the capillaries, allowing the infection to
spread from the blood to tissues, particularly the brain which has
the largest capillary bed in the body.
Quotes from Dr. Klenner:
"Unless the white blood cells are saturated with
ascorbic acid, they are like soldiers without bullets."
"The degree of neutralization in a virus infection
will be in proportion to the concentration of the vitamin and the
length of time which it is employed."
"Massive use of C is compatible with any other drug
and in most instances will enhance the value of these other
Vitamin C "should be given by all physicians while
they await the diagnosis."
"With the use of massive doses of vitamin C, I have
yet to see a patient not fully recovered."
"It is necessary for everyone to take adequate
supplemental vitamin C to guard against such disasters."
"A person who will take ten to twenty grams of
ascorbic acid a day along with other nutrients might very well never

Vitamin C vs. Viruses
"Vitamin C combines chemically
with a virus and its toxins to form a new compound (probably a
peroxide) with a trace of copper acting as a catalyst. The oxygen
reduction system of the blood destroys this peroxide instantly upon
being formed. Continuous massive doses of vitamin C thereby destroy
active virus and their toxins."
- Fred R. Klenner, M.D.
"The killing power of ascorbic acid is not limited to
just herpes simplex and the adenovirus. When proper amounts are used it
will destroy all virus organisms."
- Fred R. Klenner, M.D.
Vitamin D is
"To say vitamin D has anti-inflammatory,
antimicrobial, antiviral, anti-anything properties is an
understatement. Vitamin D may be one of our most reliable proactive
ingredients in bolstering comprehensive immunity and reinforcing the
body's natural defenses." - Dr.
Michael Holick, page 115.
Do you ever wonder why colds and the flu
come in the winter? That is when we have the lowest level of vitamin D
due to lack of sunlight. Our skin makes vitamin D when exposed to the
ultraviolet B rays of the sun. UVB light is
blocked by glass. People should spend more time outdoors in natural
sunlight. Sunlight is a natural disinfectant.
Some doctors suggest that ensuring an
adequate intake of vitamin D in winter is more effective than a flu
shot. The vitamin D will strengthen your immune system and help fight
off colds, flu and much else besides.
Research indicates that vitamin D can slash risk of
cancers by up to 77%. Epidemiologists find that
about one hundred diseases are
more common in northern latitudes where sun exposure is less, suggesting
that maintaining a high level of vitamin D in the blood would play a
starring role in protecting our health.
A program to improve the health of the
entire population could start by ensuring that everyone has a high level
of vitamin D in the blood.
"Vitamin D is the body's natural antibiotic
and antiviral compound - one that could make the difference between life
and death." - Dr. David Williams
UBI therapy (Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation, also called photo - luminescence) is a safe and effective treatment worth trying for virtually all diseases that resist cure by other means (cancer, arthritis, asthma, pneumonia, AIDS, tetanus, rabies, polio, hepatitis,...). About 100 mls of blood are drawn, exposed to ultraviolet light and then returned to your body. Simple!
Ultraviolet light (UBI Therapy) not only kills bacteria and viruses, but it has another remarkable ability - "the stimulation of the immune system and various enzyme systems." - Dr. Douglass, page 11.
UBI therapy increases oxygen absorption by the blood, creates an "autogenous (self-generated) vaccine" and inactivates toxins (from viruses, tetanus, botulism, septicemia, rabies, snake, scorpion, etc.).
Vitamin D vs. Viruses, Bacteria and Fungi
Vitamin D stimulates the body's production
of antimicrobial peptides which have been shown to attack bacteria,
fungi and viruses, including the influenza virus, and which play a key
role in keeping the lungs free from infection.
Vitamin D Council recommended amounts
Based on the body's indicated
daily vitamin D usage, the Vitamin D Council recommends the
following amounts of supplemental vitamin D3 per day in
the absence of proper sun exposure.
- Healthy infants - 1,000
- Healthy children - 1,000 IU/day per every 25
lbs. of body
- Healthy adults - 5,000 IU/day
Additionally, children and adults
with chronic health conditions
may need as much as
double these amounts.
Iodine and Potassium Iodide
Tincture of iodine is a disinfectant used on
cuts and scrapes on the skin. The bottle generally says "For External Use Only."
This is because of other constituents of the tincture, such as
isopropyl alcohol. However, when travelling where the
water is of uncertain quality we often put a drop of iodine in our
water bottle to help purify the water.
There are two types of iodine that the body requires
for good health. These are elemental iodine and potassium iodide.
Japanese people get these from seafood. Lugol's iodine contains both
iodine and iodide. There is a tablet you can buy called
Iodoral that contains 5 mg iodine and 7.5 mg iodide
for a total of 12.5 mg, which is about the same as what the Japanese
people get daily from seafood.
Iodide is needed by the thyroid gland and skin. The
breasts need iodine. Either form of iodine can be used by the
kidneys, spleen, liver, blood, salivary glands and intestines. Every
organ and tissue in the body has a requirement for iodine or iodide.
Dr. Mercola, "There is a large body of evidence suggesting that
low cancer rates in Japan are a result of their substantially higher

Editor's note: The thyroid needs both
iodine and selenium in reasonable balance. When
supplementing with iodine it is necessary to ensure that
sufficient selenium is also consumed. The best selenium
supplement seems to be 200 mcg selenomethionine or
selenocysteine . Selenomethionine and selenocysteine are
the organic forms of selenium found in foods. One brazil
nut contains about 100 mcg of selenium. (A brazil nut a
day keeps the doctor away?)
If selenium is
deficient, ensuring that there is sufficient
selenium in the diet can have a powerful
beneficial effect on the immune system. In Canada and
the U.S.A., the estimated average daily intake of
selenium is generally regarded as sufficient. Selenium
deficient regions include New Zealand, most of Africa,
much of Europe and parts of China. Selenium absorption
is inhibited by Crohn's disease. Selenium is removed by
kidney dialysis. Certain viral diseases consume selenium
(HIV-1, HIV-2, Hepatitis B
and C, and Coxsackie B). Research in China indicates
that selenium supplementation in deficient populations
offers a protective effect against these viruses. Many
millions of people around the world have hepatitis.
When in doubt, a few brazil nuts a day seems harmless.
"The toxicity of selenium in humans seems to have been
greatly exaggerated." -
Dr. Harold D. Foster. This is something we have
also noticed with other nutrients that have the
potential to displace pharmaceuticals, such as iodine
"It's time to stop ignoring the facts! If
you want to maintain your good health,

it is vitally important that you increase your
intake of selenium."

The concept of nutrient density that Dr. Fuhrman mentions is key to truly making sense of dietary issues. The USDA maintains a National Nutritional Database. Go to the database and start searching on your favorite foods. If you know how to read it ("energy" equates to calories) and compare sirloin steak to romaine lettuce, for example, you will be greatly surprised. You will find that romaine lettuce not only has far more nutrients than sirloin (probably not a surprise), but it also contains over twice the protein per calorie as sirloin. Now that probably will come as a surprise to most people. As a side note, on a per calorie basis, romaine lettuce contains 100 times the calcium, over 20 times the magnesium, and infinitely more antioxidants, phytochemicals, and fiber than sirloin. Which food do you think is more beneficial to your body?
And it's not just leafy greens that are nutrient dense. Fruits of all kinds are packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, phytochemicals, and fiber.
And even whole grains have more nutrient density than meat and dairy.
Fresh juices provide
a convenient way to access the concentrated nutrition available in
fruits and vegetables. Fresh juices provide
super-nutrition to the body. Fresh foods are the only foods that contain
enzymes and do not deplete the body's supply of enzymes. Plentiful
enzymes in the body can dissolve the protein coat of viruses, and clean
up the mucus that hides cancer cells from the immune system. Fresh
juices are a good source of alkaline minerals and help to maintain the
flow of bile. Fresh juices can be a good source of amino acids,
particularly lysine and tryptophan that are destroyed by heat.
Fresh fruits & vegetables and
their juices are the best food source of potassium. To get your
potassium to sodium balance back to a healthy 4:1, you will need to make
fruits and vegetables the foundation of your diet and greatly reduce
consumption of processed foods that contain little
potassium and are high in sodium.
Vitamins C & D and iodine are nutrients
needed by the body and which we should be consuming anyway. Their
protective effect against viruses, bacteria, fungi, parasites, and
degenerative conditions such as cancer, diabetes and cardiovascular
disease are a bonus. This is a common theme throughout our website.
Rather than spending money on "treatments" and "cures" why not focus on
a healthy diet and lifestyle - things that we should be doing whether we
are sick or not. Then as our health improves we simply continue what we
are already doing.
Providing the body
with necessary nutrients helps build health. This is the key. Modern
medicine with its drugs tries to cure disease without putting much
attention on health. If the drug works and the disease goes away what
have you really accomplished? The disease can just come back, or
something else can take its place. This may be good business practice
for people who earn their living from disease, but it is not ideal for
us. What we want is to build a level of health that resists disease.

Essential oils are subtle, volatile liquids distilled from plants, shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes, and seeds. There are over a hundred references to essential oils in the bible (frankincense, myrrh, galbanum, rosemary, hyssop, cassia, cinnamon, and spikenard). Many essential oils:
Are immune enhancing
Support the body's natural defenses
Support the immune, circulatory, respiratory, endocrine, digestive, nervous, and other body systems
Aid in maintaining normal cellular regeneration
Are mood elevating
Are antiseptic (topical use only)
Are high in antioxidants
Boost stamina and energy
Help you relax
Help manage stress and frustration
Help reduce the appearance of aging
Improve mental clarity
Promote overall health, vitality, and longevity.
Most essential oils available in stores have been diluted to reduce the cost and may even contain artificial ingredients. Only the most pure essential oils have therapeutic qualities, so it is very important that you trust the source.

William Campbell Douglass, M.D. highly recommends EWOT. Exercise With Oxygen Therapy (EWOT) is doing light exercise, such as on a treadmill or stationary bicycle, while breathing pure oxygen. EWOT produces the benefits of hydrogen peroxide therapy and you can do it at home. Set the O2 flow at 6 liters per minute, hook the little tube to your nose, and exercise at a moderate pace for 15 minutes while breathing pure oxygen. As part of your cancer prevention and health maintenance program, do this at least once a month. If you are ill with any disease, do EWOT more frequently. In particular, do EWOT after operations, chemotherapy, radiation treatment, x-rays, and burns. EWOT should be offered by every spa, clinic and health club in the country.
Bottled oxygen is generally a prescription item. However, you can purchase for home use an "oxygen concentrator" such as is used in "oxygen bars".

Flows of Energy in Nature
There is an electrical potential difference of about 300,000 volts between the surface of the earth and the lower level of the ionosphere. With the ionosphere beginning at about 80 km above the earth's surface, this means there is a voltage potential gradient of about 4 volts per meter. For a person two meters tall, the voltage potential gradient is nearly 8 volts between the bottom of the feet and top of the head.
Electrons on the earth are constantly being attracted toward the sky, but the air is a poor conductor. Electrons flow along a surface, but to leave the surface they need a point to channel the flow. This is why tree tops, leaf tips, and the hairs on your head are pointed. They are designed to facilitate the flow of electrons through the physiology.
This flow is healthy. Free radicals are molecules short an electron. The flow of electrons energizes the body, neutralizes free radicals, and increases alkalinity by neutralizing H+ ions. This is why a walk in the morning is a rasayana ("rasayana" is a Sanskrit term indicating that something is beneficial for all people). The dew covered grass transfers an abundance of electrons to the body through the feet. This is a reason why being surrounded by reinforced concrete in an office tower is unhealthy. The metal bars in the reinforced concrete channel the electron flow around the interior rather than through it.
Ideally we should always be grounded to the earth. Shoes, flooring,
bedding should all allow us to be grounded to the earth. There is a
growing body of research demonstrating the health benefits of this
grounding. You can read about it in the book called
Earthing: The Most
Important Health Discovery Ever by Clinton Ober, Stephen Sinatra and
Martin Zucker. Watch what Earthing does to

Vedic homes always have a kalash on top. If gilded, the decorative kalash is a conductor, wide at the base and pointed on top. One theory is that electrons are drawn up through the living quarters to the base of the kalash and then emitted into the sky. This may create a constant flow of healthy electrons through the house. In many religions, we take off our shoes in a temple so the body is grounded and the flow of electrons through us is unimpeded. Tall towers and spires above the holy structure may increase the voltage gradient and amplify the flow. On a mountain top this effect is greatly magnified, which may be one reason why "wise people" are frequently depicted sitting on a mountain top. Negative ions around waterfalls and in the air after thunderstorms also contain extra electrons, as does Alkaline Water and water treated with Microhydrin.
Paramagnetic rock is a semiconductor. Chips of this rock in the soil aid the flow of electrons and plants grow in this flow. Medicinal plants growing wild are more potent than cultivated plants, partly because farm soils are losing their paramagnetism. Crushed paramagnetic rock costs $22.50 per ton and the recommended application is one ton per acre. Rock chips are better than rock dust because they last much longer. The dust can wash away.
In addition to being an electrical conductor, the human body is also a good antenna. Anyone who has touched a TV antenna and found that the picture improved can readily understand that the human body is an antenna. A tree is a good ELF and VLF antenna.
The earth itself has certain resonance frequencies called Schumann waves and all life on earth evolved within this electromagnetic environment. The natural Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) electromagnetic waves have the same frequencies as the human nervous system.
Paramagnetic material over a diamagnetic base creates an ELF antenna amplifier. Ancient religious structures are found to be ELF "resonance cavities" which quiet the mind and create a sense of peace. The ancients enhanced these frequencies in holy places, not in homes.
By giving careful consideration to the materials and design of our buildings we may have an opportunity to use the physical structure to energize the occupants, improve the health of all who spend time there, and help create an experience of heightened awareness and enlightenment. (The word "enlightenment" means "filled with light". When you close your eyes what do you see inside your head, darkness or light?)

The space between the surface of the earth and the ionosphere forms a resonance cavity for naturally occurring electromagnetic frequencies. As can be seen in the chart on the left, the world's 60 HZ* alternating current electric power grids have introduced an artifact into our global electromagnetic environment. *HZ=Hertz=cycles per second
The human physiology evolved in the presence
of natural electromagnetic frequencies, and the experience of
astronauts demonstrates that we cannot be healthy in their absence.

Herbs vs. Bacteria & Viruses
Dr. David Williams suggests that
grapefruit seed extract
(GSE) can be an effective treatment for Vancomycin resistant enterococci (VRE). VRE can be deadly and is otherwise untreatable. Grapefruit seed extract may also be effective against many other bacteria, fungi and yeast.
Rather than using GSE daily to prevent infections, it may be better
save it for special occasions, such as before and after surgery
and other hospital visits. The reason is that daily use of GSE may
kill friendly bacteria in your body, plus regular use may breed
GSE-resistant bugs. GSE may be useful for many infections that are
here. Every home should have some GSE in the medicine cabinet.
Dr. David Williams recommends elderberry extract anti-viral remedies for all varieties of influenza tested. May also be effective for other viral diseases. Sambucol 888-406-4066, Elderberry Advantage 800-888-1415.
According to Health Sciences Institute, Olive Leaf Extract (calcium elenolate) is reported to be effective against a wide variety of bacteria and viruses including influenza, meningitis, Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), encephalitis, the common cold, herpes I and II, HHV-6, HHV-7, shingles, HTLV-I, HTLV-II, HIV.ARC/AIDS, CFIDS, CMV, hepatitis B, urinary-tract infections, severe diarrhea, blood poisoning, and surgical infections. 800-411-5795, 800-878-6520
According to Terry Willard, Ph.D., Olive Leaf Extract (elenolic acid) is reported to have strong antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral action. He suggests taking one tablet or capsule every six hours or four throughout the day to help treat a wide variety of infections.
According to Dr. Michael Prytula, certain herbs have documented antiviral activity. These include Astragalus (Coxsacki B-2 virus, influenza virus), St. Johns Wort (HIV, Epstein-Barr virus, cytomegalovirus, herpes), and Liquorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra) for HIV, SARS, herpes, shingles, and hepatitis A and B. Dr. Prytula also recommends ozone, hydrogen peroxide, Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation, and high doses of vitamin C for viral infections.
The ancient Tibetan herbal formula called "Padma"
is now available from Padma, Inc. of Switzerland. Padma is a mix of 28
ingredients including herbs and camphor. Research in many countries
indicates that Padma is useful for a variety of problems including
chronic infections (hepatitis B, AIDS, bronchitis, pneumonia), and
clearing clogged arteries (angina, peripheral artery occlusion, cerebral

Coconut Oil vs. Lipid-Coated Microorganisms
The unique properties of coconut oil make it, in essence, a natural antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, and
antiprotozoal food. -
Bruce Fife, N.D. page 64. The following chart is from page 68 of Dr. Fife's book
The Coconut Oil Miracle:
Lipid-Coated Microorganisms Killed by Lauric Acid
(a medium chain fatty acid produced by the digestion of coconut oil)
Herpes simplex virus||
Human lymphotropic virus |
Groups A, B, F, and G |
Vesicular stomatitis virus|
Gram-negative organisms |
(if pretreated with chelator)
Epstein-Barr virus|| |
Influenza virus|| |
Leukemia virus|| |
Hepatitis C virus|| |
Lipid-coated viruses and bacteria are easily killed by medium chain fatty acids which primarily destroy these organisms by disrupting their lipid membranes. -
Bruce Fife, N.D. page 65.
Coconut oil is composed of 48 percent lauric acid (a 12-chain saturated fatty acid), 7 percent capric acid (a 10-chain saturated fatty acid), 8 percent caprylic acid (an 8-chain saturated fatty acid), and 0.5 percent caproic acid (a 6-chain saturated fatty acid). These fatty acids give coconut oil its amazing antimicrobial properties and are generally absent from all other vegetable and animal oils, with the exception of butter which has about 3 percent lauric acid. -
Bruce Fife, N.D. pages 66 - 67.
Laboratory tests have shown that the medium chain fatty acids found in coconut oil are effective in destroying viruses that cause influenza, measles, herpes, mononucleosis, hepatitis C, and AIDS; bacteria that can cause stomach ulcers, throat infections, pneumonia, sinusitis, earache, rheumatic fever, dental cavities, food poisoning, urinary tract infections, meningitis, gonorrhea, and toxic shock syndrome; fungi and yeast that lead to ringworm, candida, and thrush; and parasites that can cause intestinal infections such as giardiasis. -

Dr. Spreen: "I'd be
taking vitamin C by the grams (to bowel tolerance then just below), but
right before surgery you'd have to cut back to keep from
anesthesia (which is another toxin, remember). I'd also be
taking beta-glucan as an immune
"For strict bactericidal activity I'd be doing olive leaf extract,
grapefruit seed extract (not grape seed, though I like it too), and
colloidal silver. In other words, I'd be pulling out all the stops. If I
had a reasonable doc I'd be getting vitamin C intravenously post-op -
then the MRSA wouldn't be a factor. Yep, vitamin C in high enough doses
kills ALL invading bugs. Fred Klenner, MD, proved that back in the 40's
(but who's listening?)."
Editor's note: "MRSA"
means "Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus" which is an
infection increasingly caught in hospitals. In the U.S. during the
period July 2004 to the end of 2005, 94,000 patients caught MRSA and
18,500 of them died. See "Invasive Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus
aureus Infections in the United States" Journal of the American
Medical Association, Vol. 298, No. 15, 10/17/07. Another vitamin
that kills MRSA is vitamin B3. Look it up on the Internet.

bio-oxidation to treat everything from malaria to AIDS - and with astonishing results!" - William Campbell Douglass, M.D.
"Give me a chance to create fever and I will cure any disease," said the great physician Parmenides, 2,000 years ago. Fever is one of the body's defense and healing forces. High temperature speeds up metabolism, and inhibits the growth of an invading virus or bacteria. See

Books, 2000. Magnet therapy has many decades of research in Europe
documenting its effectiveness. Magnet therapy is effective for a wide
variety of degenerative conditions. Magnet therapy is economical, has no
negative side effects, and can be used to complement any other
therapy. "Because magnets do not introduce any foreign substance to the
body, this makes them safer over the long-term than medications...All types
of cancer will prove reversible by continuous exposure to a negative
magnetic field" (page 24).
For sources of magnets do an Internet search
for subjects such as "Dr. Philpott magnet therapy" or "Dr. Philpott
magnet therapy cancer".
"Negative magnetic field therapy will be the most effectual antibiotic treatment for infections (bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites)... because none of these organisms can tolerate a negative magnetic field." - Philpott page 24. (The north seeking needle of a compass points to the negative magnetic field. It is the negative magnetic field side of the magnet that you place against your skin in magnet therapy).
"I have seen dramatic results when the north magnetic pole is applied to a cancer or an area of inflammation." -

Editor's note: Japanese research has demonstrated that when human blood flows through a magnetic field, a very slight electrical current is generated. This electrical current is found to have health benefits. The earth's magnetic field has decreased 50% in the past 500 years and is presently declining at a rate of 5% per 100 years. We may all benefit from measures to supplement our exposure to magnetism and from a variety of methods to supplement our biological electricity.

A strong immune system will defend you from many health problems, including cancer. There are many ways to strengthen the immune system, and one of the best is to drink a lot of fresh fruit and vegetable juices. These juices are concentrated nutrition in a form that is easily assimilated by the body. Common advice for cancer patients is to drink one glass of freshly made juice each waking hour of the day. As part of your health maintenance program, drinking these juices regularly, plus a one day a week juice fast is very helpful.
Off to a Fast Start...the Importance of Exercise
Exercise is important for re-establishing and maintaining good health. However some exercise is better than others. We highly recommend yoga asanas (hatha yoga) which you can learn at your local TM Center. We also recommend the rebound mini-trampoline as a useful tool in your fight with cancer. Having tried several kinds only to have them break, we ended up with only one brand that we recommend. To learn more about rebounding and which is our favorite brand, let's move on to
