Subject: Re: Flu Shots

One opinion--coming right up! I work with someone whose friend got a flu
shot last November, soon afterwards he was completely paralyzed with
Guillain-Barre Syndrome. His condition continued to worsen and in about
a month's time he slipped into a coma and is now in a nursing home. This
was a healthy man in his 40's who had had flu shots a number of times
before. His wife was told that during that time there were seven other
similar cases in Staten Island (NY) alone.

That same year, the only person in our office who went and got a flu
shot, came down with a bad case of the flu. If you think you're coming
down with a cold or flu, run to your local complementary health
practitioner and get a hydrogen peroxide IV. Nips it in the bud.

Subject: My Story

Larry Clapp:

I was very "healthy", happy and successful, when I was diagnosed with
Prostate Cancer at age 58, in 1990.

"You're going to die very painful death, if We don't cut out Your cancerous
prostate, immediately. !"  -   The doctors told me.


In fact they had booked my surgery for 6 am. the very next morning. 


"It is a minor surgery,  just sign the release and show up, and You will
live happily the rest of your life" -  The doctors told me.


I pressed for answers about side effects and learned that I might be
impotent, incontinent and that I would need to take 8 weeks off from my
business to recuperate, from this "minor surgery." These were unacceptable
to me, so I decided to begin an intensive exploration of my alternatives.


I talked my way into medical libraries and consulted with many MD’s and
healers of all types.  I quickly learned that most of the world does not
have prostate problems, that it is mainly in the Western, developed
countries.   I learned that nutrition is a major factor, with studies
showing that when men relocated from Africa or Asia, where they had no
prostate problems, these men soon developed prostate problems like the rest
of us.


I went on a fasting retreat and saw the toxins come out of my body and saw
my PSA come down from near 10 to near 5 in a single week. Medicine then
considered this to be impossible, but I knew I was on the right track,
toxins, including Dental, were a major factor in prostate health. Within 2
months, my PSA was less than 2 and I was cancer free.


Now 66 and in real health, I have continued my research, cleansing and
learning to this day.

"Most medical doctors won't tell you that conventional treatments alone are
not sufficient to solve prostate problems. In fact, of men who have had
prostate surgery, 35% require retreatment within 5 years and 75% require
additional treatment in 10 years! 

Each year 40,000 American men have their prostates surgically removed or
burned with radiation, often within 48 hours of cancer diagnosis. While
doing so may eliminate an immediate problem, it will also result in reduced
quality of life, often including impotence and incontinence. And,
unfortunately, surgery and radiation don't work as well as claimed.

Dr.Lorianne Day

You Have Cancer. You're Going to Die!
the doctors told me. . . 


"But they were wrong!" says Lorraine Day M.D. She was diagnosed with
invasive breast cancer and had a lumpectomy of a small tumor. But the tumor
soon recurred, became very aggressive and grew rapidly. Yet Dr. Day
rejected standard therapies because of their destructive side effects and
because those therapies often lead to death. She chose instead to rebuild
her immune system using the natural, simple inexpensive therapies designed
by God and available to everyone, so her body could heal itself.

In her two videos, You Can't Improve on God and Cancer Doesn't Scare Me
Anymore, Dr. Day explains why you don't have to accept a death sentence
from your doctor and how this plan has been used successfully by many
patients with different types of life-threatening diseases to regain their

Tumor grew to the size of a grapefuit in less than 3 weeks!

Most impressive was her statement that she rejected "traditional" therapies
because she studied the medical literature - which proved to her that these
treatments are ineffective! Why are patients not given this information,
available to professionals? Dr. Day says she came to the common sense
conclusion that "you cannot destroy the immune system and get well at the
same time." She discovered nutritional healing, the Gerson Therapy, and

Dr. Lorraine Day has the courage to defy orthodox medicine by getting up
before the entire audience of the Cancer Control Society and testifying, as


"I am Dr. Lorraine Day. Some of you know me from the book I wrote: AIDS
What the Government Isn't Telling You. Several years ago, I actually spoke
here about AIDS. I have been coming to the Cancer Control Society meetings
regularly for three years and I have learned more about medicine and how to
take care of yourself than I learned in 20 years as an orthodox trauma
surgeon. I knew nothing about nutrition as a medical doctor. In the four
years of medical school, you don't have one single hour of information on
nutrition. I have talked about that and admitted that I, in the past, have
told patients that their nutrition has really nothing to do with their
health. I was ignorant, I was stupid as many orthodox medical doctors are. 
Fortunately, I found out what was really going on in the health field by
coming to the Cancer Control Society, and I started speaking out about it,
studying it and actually had a radio show called "Truth Serum" where I was
interviewing many alternative doctors. In the middle of that, I found out
that I had breast cancer. I had infiltrating ductal carcinoma and it was
spreading through my breast. 

I went to my first doctor to have the lump taken out. At that time I did
not know it was cancer. He refused to take care of me unless I had
pre-operative chemotherapy. Even though I told him that I was a physician,
and that I would sign any papers releasing him from any legal liability -
but that I didn't want chemotherapy. I just wanted the lump taken out and
diagnosed. He said, No. His reputation was at stake. So, I walked out of
his office realizing that the law considers it acceptable for a physician
to abandon a patient if the patient refuses the doctor's prescription. So I
went to a former resident colleague, who is a breast cancer surgeon. He
took the lump out but he couldn't get all the cancer. He said, 'You have to
have your breast removed.' I refused. Then he said, 'If you don't have your
breast removed, you must have radiation therapy.' Once again, I declined.
Then he said, 'You must have chemotherapy or some other kind of treatment
to destroy these cancer cells.' I told him, 'No. I brought you a whole
stack of books, if you really want to learn about cancer. Read these books.
I won't have any of the orthodox treatments just take the lump out.' He
said that he could not get all the cancer. I said, 'Fine. Everybody gets
cancer all the time.  My body can take care of that!'  

I immediately went home and called up Marilyn Barnes, whom you just heard
earlier. (Marilyn Barnes had just previously testified to her total
recovery, now over 14 years, from stage 4 melanoma as well as carcinoma in
situ - cervical cancer on the Gerson Therapy.) [Marilyn] came to my house
and set me up. She taught a woman I hired how to do the Gerson Therapy. The
Gerson Therapy was going to be the basis of my treatment. I started the
juices, the enemas, the whole business. In fact, I looked at cancer as a
great adventure. Unfortunately, I didn't have the time to take all the
different alternatives, but I tried as many as I could. But the Gerson Diet
is the basis of all my treatment. I am fine. I am healthy. I don't have any
evidence of cancer. It has only been close to a year, but I have absolute
confidence that I'll be well and healthy for many, many years to come." 

Dr. Lorraine Day has impressive credentials. She is an internationally
acclaimed orthopedic trauma surgeon and author. She was for 15 years on the
faculty of the University of California, San Francisco, School of Medicine
as Associate Professor and Vice Chairman of the Department of Orthopedics.
She was also Chief of Orthopedic Surgery at San Francisco General Hospital
and is recognized world-wide as an AIDS expert. She has been invited to
lecture extensively throughout the U.S. and the world; appeared on numerous
radio and television shows, including 60 Minutes, Nightline, CNN Crossfire,
Oprah Winfrey, and Larry King Live.

I was diagnosed as a Diabetic at the age of 11.  Was injecting 15
units of U40 lente insulin daily.

At 11 I weighed 77 lbs, by the time I was 12 and a half I was at 129
lbs, nearly doubled.

At fifteen I finally toped out at 145 lbs, and took matters into my
own hands.  I stopped eating what my mom put on front of me 'starch'
carbs( corn, potatoes, most wheat products) just picked out what I
could eat on my plate- the meat & veggies. I Stoked up on fresh Fruit
& veggies.  And today I eat meat with all meals - fish for breakfast,
tuna or  chicken for lunches, and beef with dinners.  I also begain
biking 15+ miles daily, & added running in 1988, 

When I like myself and stick to this I've no need for insulin
injections since. All my Glucose tolerance tests are well below danger
zone.  and random stick tests for blood sugar all read  below danger

Finding ER4YT confirms what my body had been urging me to do all
along, But having the rest of the picture for problems other than
diabeic is what is the extra boon for me.

Subject: [ER4YT-A] My success story so far...

From: Shelagh McGuire <>

Mine is a success story so far. I started the diet by cutting out dairy and
red meat.  I  know that some dairy is allowed for type A, but my homeopath
said that I should cut it  out completely.  My cravings for sweats
disappeared in a couple of days. After 3 weeks I  began following the diet
closely.  Over the 1st 7 weeks, I lost 15 pounds without  reducing my food
intake at all.  I seem to have stabilised now but we will
se what  happens in the new year.  I would like to loose another 15 pounds.
I am nursing 2  children which probably contributes to fast weight loss,
although I had not lost any  weight for the last 7 months prior to the
diet.  I feel looser in all my joints and my  skin disorders are much
better.  Is that a result of the diet or the homeopathic  treatments?

  Probably a combination of both.

My greatest challenge is getting enough sleep.  It is a vicious cycle.  A
child brings  in a virus and keeps my mostly awake for several nights.  A
sick child is very close to  me physically coughing in my face, sticking
fingers in my mouth.  I inevitably catch the  virus because I am so run
down from lack of sleep and catch it bad.  I find myself  craving food and
nibbling all day for the quick burst of energy.  My skin
reacts with by  breaking out all over the place; psoriasis, eczema and
other mysterious rashes.  The  whole cycle is a lot more vicious in the
winter.  We live in Canada so we do get winter.

My family of 5 As had been healthy for the last 2 weeks and counting.... I
am sure that  we need to give it a year.

I began the ERFYT way of life about 3 months ago. I have always been
quite thin, but was pretty much eating a type A- vegetarian diet.  When
I read the book and learned that I am a Type O+, I immediately changed
my diet. I have since lost every ounce of body fat on my body.  I have
always been in good shape due to regular exercise, but I am more toned
than ever and my energy level has soared.  (I used to want to take a nap
every afternoon, and I no longer get that energy dip).  If you follow
this plan, and remember that Type O’s need vigorous exercise, you will
undoubtedly lose excess weight.
Good Luck!

Subject: [ER4YT-A] Indigestion Help

From: "Dirlam, Cordelia" <>

Before I started the A diet I had severe indigestion, heartburn, and
acid reflux.  Since eating according to the A plan I no longer have any
problems.  I am single and and always on the go so it is tempting not to
bother cooking.  However, I started making vegetable soups in my
crockpot using all the HB root vegetables plus sometimes some broccoli,
beans and other HB vegetables.  I just slice up a bunch of vegetables,
throw them in the pot with water and some parsley, bay leaf or other
herbs for flavor, turn the pot on low, just let it simmer while I sleep
or do other things.  I don't use purchased broths as most have MSG and
other additives that bother me.  Sometimes I throw in some turkey or ham
bones for flavoring.  I also now make lentil and other bean soups too,
but originally I reacted to the vegetable soups best.  When the soup is
done, I put it in smaller containers and freeze it.  I bring a container
to work and heat it up in the microwave oven or heat it up at night when
I am too tired to be bothered cooking much.  I eat alot of salads with
HB greens, carrots, broccoli, mushrooms, onions, garlic, feta cheese.
Sometimes I bring these to work.  I also steam up a batch of rice which
I again package up in small containers for other meals.  It is good with
stir fried vegetables and tofu.  I bring pears and apples to snack on.
I also make tofu, fruit and fruitjuice shakes for quick breakfast or
snack.  Also youghurt for a snack.  A small can of salmon is always easy
to add to a salad.  I find I have to stay away from wheat.  It causes
asthma and also acid reflux and weight gain...the puffy water storage
gassy kind.  I really don't spend alot of time cooking, but I am eating
home cooked meals that I know what the ingrediants are and I feel very

From: "Knabenbauer, Sandi" <>

Listening to all the various "problems" people are having with a diet so 
specific to our blood types, I'm beginning to wonder if there aren't
variations in our blood that science has yet to discover. 

Tomatoes - I love them but they give me gas. I avoided them for a few weeks
then ate pizza one evening. The tomatoes were the only avoid food on the
That night I was intolerable!

Sweet 'n Low - I use it but too much upsets my stomach. Usually one or two
packets, if any, are all I might use in a day. I have ordered some Stevia
and am eager to try it.

Peanuts - To even my own amazement they act as a laxative for me. People
think I'm crazy but I know they are "highly beneficial" to my system.

Allergies - I had eczema as a child. The tests basically labeled all the
"avoid foods" as those items I should avoid (oranges, wheat, milk, etc.)
ER4YT was a revelation to me explaining "why" I was so allergic. At age 7 I
went through extensive desensitization vaccinations but as an adult the
allergies started to return. 

Understanding the blood type issues has freed me to make decisions wisely.

I believe that a "healthy diet" will not cause digestion problems or
illness. If the food is in the wrong category for your system, change it -
or at least find out why!

Peter D'Adamo's research is definitely on the right track and I'm very
curious to see how new scientific 
discoveries reinforce and/or modify the concepts in this book.

Subject: [ER4YT-A] first post & stuff :^)

From: Lori Tostado <>

Hi!  My name is Lori and I'm in Sacramento, CA. I've been reading the
list for about a week now and just read all the archives too.  Thanks
for starting this list--it's very helpful.

 I've been trying to do the A diet since around August.  I was pretty
much a vegetarian already, just occasionally eating poultry and some
fish, but since having a hair analysis done in Oct. that showed I was
low in taurine and cannot digest simple carbohydrates effectively, and
my adrenals are low, the testing lab suggested that I should eat meat,
take enzymes, and so I buy some more chicken (free-range, organic) from
the co-op and modify that into my diet.  Probably I eat some chicken 4
or 5 times a week and have cut out a lot of the avoid foods, and I try
to eat more of the HB's.  I've also been taking milk thistle (caps) and
nettle herbal tea to help detox the, I have so many
supplements!  I started taking lots of extra vitamins and minerals years
ago because I was so tired all the time.  Now I add herbs and this diet,
which I've actually gained weight on (and am now like 20 lbs
overweight!) but I have more energy and that's great for me because I
work full time and I'm a mother of a 2 1/2 year old sweet little boy who
is also type A.  Getting him to eat things on the HB or even neutral
list is practically impossible.  Heck, getting him to eat *anything* is
a miracle. <G>  He is extremely picky.  So is my dh, and he doesn't know
his blood type.  I suspect he's A like us just because of the way we all
have similar allergies, get infections easily, etc.  He could be O
though.  I wish he'd find out, but even if he did and was type A, I
couldn't get him to eat tofu for the life of me. <G>  He doesn't like my
vegetarian cooking at all.  Oh well.  

Personally, as far as tofu goes, I only really like the silken tofu.  In
my stir-fries it'll get to the consistency of cottage cheese and take on
the sauce's flavor and I like it very much.  Trouble is all that soy,
and other veggies like broccoli, don't set with my intestines very
well!  Why is it that all these foods that are supposed to be so good
for us wreck havock with the gut for some of us?  I think I found an
expensive (yeah, expensive--but since I've had a relative die of colon
cancer, it may be a price I'm willing to pay) cleansing method and
dietary aid.  Digestive enzymes that contain a-galatosidase (the enzyme
that is in the Bean-o brand supplement--but I don't like Bean-o much
because of the other stuff it has in it, like cottonseed oil) seem to
help.  I recently found a broad spectrum enzyme supplement with herbs in
it too that is under the name "KAL" and yesterday I took 2 of them with
a stir-fry meal that usually gives me terrible gas and bloating and had
no problem!  And, last year when I was doing colonics (yeah I know it
sounds gross but it worked) that really cleansed the colon and helped
with my digestive problems.  I read (in my various readings on health
and nutrition--I just don't remember the source) how your liver will try
to release toxins through the digestive system, and cleanse them out of
your digestive system too, but if your bacteria in your colon are "bad"
ones, the toxins keep recirculating, and your liver gets very taxed! 
Then it can't do it's other 500 or so functions, and you can get things
like allergies, acne, arthritis, eczema and lots of problems. 

My son has had allergies since he was born--mainly food allergies--the
worst were to corn and peanuts!  But I found an acupuncturist here in my
city who does Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Techniques (NAET --
check out and it doesn't use needles--just acupressure to
treat and kinesiology muscle testing to diagnose substance
sensitivities, and we've had marvelous results!  My son can eat all the
foods again that formerly caused him to have rashes, eczema, and
asthma,  with no problems anymore.  We're not finished with the program
yet, but soon will be treating his environmental allergies.  The NAET
treatments are supposed to last a lifetime.  I am so amazed what they've
done for me too.  In combination with the A-diet (well, I probably stick
to it about 80% of the time... and let's not talk about the holidays
though, uh?) and NAET, I don't get heart palpitations anymore, so don't
have to take my heart medication anymore.  I didn't ever suspect my
heart palpitations were due to allergies before--but they were.  You'd
be amazed by what could be an allergy.  Please check out the site if you
have any allergies at all.  Especially to any HB food--you might get the
great relief we have with NAET and be able to stick to the diet better
and get more benefits from it.

I have more energy now and I have been so impressed with the results of
NAET and acupuncture, and this diet, that I feel like I will be ready to
go back to school next fall, like I've wanted to do for a long time, but
was just too wiped out and stressed out to even consider it!  I'm
applying to Bastyr University (Dr. D's school) to get a Master's degree
in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.  It's a 3 1/2 year program.  I am
currently a chemist working in the field of air pollution (oh, you are
what you breathe as well as what you eat!!  My fair city is not so nice
in this respect, unfortunately...sigh.)  But I have done so many courses
in personal growth and development, and have a gift for healing, so I've
been told, that I know I have to persue this, it calls to me...I really
want to help people, so, please wish me luck on my application to
Bastyr!  <VBG>

BTW, regarding soy milks--I use Vitasoy in my coffee with a few drops of
the liquid stevia extract, and it tastes pretty good!  Not as good as
the Coffee Mate, yeah, I kind of miss that too, hehe.  I get Soy Dream
Enriched Vanilla for my son to drink as "milk" and he likes it a lot. I
used to use Westsoy Plus which he liked too, but the Soy Dream is
fortified with even more vitamins and minerals, and since it is so hard
to get my son to eat "good" foods, I feel better knowing he's at least
getting a nutritious soy drink. I got my husband to switch to organic
cow's milk at least, instead of the regular stuff that has BGH and all
those antibiotics.  I haven't drank cow's milk in 4 years and don't miss
it much.  There are some really good soy drinks out there, IMHO.  They
take a little getting used to....I miss lots of cheeses though! <G>

A comment:  I was reading someone's posts in the archives that claim all
the avoid foods are based on their having harmful lectins.  But I
remember in the book reading that some of the foods, such as vinegar,
were listed as avoid simply because they were too acidic and could
easily upset the stomach of a sensitive type-A.  So I just wanted to
mention it's not completely all about lectins.  Well, I'm one who always
wants to know *why* something is the way it I'm actually looking
forward to Dr. D's "technical manual" I guess you could call it, with
all the research and scientific stuff that backs up all his work. 
That's going to be pretty fascinating to me to read.

Does anyone know anything about leaky-gut syndrome?  I have a suspicion
my son and I might have that as one of the problems of our allergies

Well, gotta go for now.  Thank you!  You're neat people here.

From: "wildlily" <>

My answer to this is to simply eat whole foods, and eat simply. It's very
easy to avoid all excitotoxins such as MSG by doing such. It is an
adjustment...also a change, but not impossible. The AMA & pharmaceutical
companies don't make $$$ off of healthy people. It's disgusting how we have
allowed, and continue to allow manufacturers to poison us. 

My family has chosen to buy "organic" when available, each fresh veggies or
frozen, and avoid all snack foods with the exception popcorn & some corn
chips. We drink water, and beneficial juices only, & occassionally soy
milk. We do cheat on occasion, but we also pay for it. :) The key is in the

We have noticed a HUGE difference in immunity this year, and New Year's Day
will make 1 year since starting ER4YT. It's made a HUGE difference, and it
worth the extra work to make home made mixes, foods, and meals ...cheaper

Subject: [ER4YT-A] Allergy testing....


Have been reading all these letters with interest, and before I got the Dr.
D's book, had allergy testing.  Strange that he found about the same things I
was sensitive to, that are bad for type A.  Could not believe I was sensitive
to green peppers, tomatoes, and potatoes.  Being of Irish descent, that was an
insult..<L>, and even sweet potatoes, which my own doctor said was necessary
for fiber.  Haven't been able to eliminate everything, but the major villains,
I now understand.  

The only things I see different that bother me is soybeans, goldenseal and
chamomile, which I hope in time as the body de-toxes, won't be a problem

Thanks for all the sharing of experiences.  Pick up so much information!

From: "Jeanie Knight" <>

Hi Rosie & all --

>Did you by any chance catch the link at the bottom of that page?

Yes, thanks for calling my attention to that!  I was particularly intrigued
by the "anti-dairy coalition" link, which in turn prompted me to do a
search on milk in general happily, my six-year-old has decided that he
prefers my homemade "peanut milk" on his cereal, while my eight-year-old
now *requests* soy over cows' milk! :-)

I came up with something which might be of great interest to those of you
who have suffered from some type
of skin eczema as I have, off and on, throughout my life.

From an article at

entitled "Eczema: Dermatitis" --

"Broader Context of Treatment:
"If dietary triggers can be identified, it is essential to avoid them
completely.  Often the specific food restrictions that are called for can
be a challenge to adhere to.  This is especially the case with young
children. . . . Even if there are no obvious food triggers, it is always
worth excluding milk and milk products.  It seems that this is especially
the case with children who were not breast-fed, or weaned too soon. 
Researchers at the Hospital for Sick Children in London have shown that
children often develop eczema when weaned from breast milk to cows' milk or
other foods.  Goats', soya or sheep's milk rarely trigger allergy problems.
 Common eczema triggers that are relatively easy to exclude include:

Cows' milk
Food additives"

Suggested therapeutic supplements include Vitamins A and E, Zinc,
Quercitin, Evening Primrose oil and flaxseed oil.

I'm so glad that this is still an active group!  I'm a 40 something
teacher in Orlando, Florida.  I am married, but no kids.  I do have 21
Haitian children in my Sheltered English class.  They keep me on mytoes!

I have 3 beautiful, very spoiled bunnies!  Coffee Bean is a brown and
gray mini lop who thinks he is king of the world.  He is very brave  and 
loves to climb up bookcases to find a new book to chew up or open the arms 
of my arm chair for a peanut or 2. He also enjoys eating Mom's shoes as well 
as everyone's else's carrots and greens.  The world revolves around Coffee, 
or so he thinks.

Angel Baby looks like and angora siamese cat.  She loves to play chase.

The boys just stay in one room, but she loves to run into the living
room and wait for me to come looking for her.  When I go in, I say
"Where's my little Angel Baby?"  Then she thumps her foot and runs back to 
the florida room and hides in her cage.  Of course, if I don't run fast 
enough, she stops and thumps and waits until I'm close and then runs home.  
Who says bunnies don't have a sense of humor!
Lit' Bit is a little blue angora bunny.  He is very shy and rather
spastic.  He rarely comes out of his bunny condo.  He loves to sit up
and beg for peanuts, and will sit on your lap for pets, if you can catchhim.

I also have a guinea pig, named Princess Ralph. The pet store thought he was 
a she, and once her masculinity showed, she he/it  already knew her/his/it's 
  name, so I just attached the Ralph.  He loves to follow Coffee all over 
the room.  He sees Coffee as his big brother.  They love to get into trouble 

My husband is very supportive of my diet.  He is willing to eat just
about anything.  In the 8 weeks I have been on the diet, we have eaten every 
kind of squash the produce store has to offer. I have been careful about 
great!  I'll send that in my next post.I am so glad that there are others 
with this affliction.  It is difficult to remain on this diet.  I didn't 
realize how addicted to sugar I was.  I didn't think I used that much.  But, 
finally, I'm over the dish smashing, door slamming stage.  It is as 
difficult as quittingsmoking.

On the plus side, I've lost 12 pounds (need to lose 130)  and my
pysoriasis that I've had for over 20 years is gone.  I'm hoping to get
my energy back and lose more weight.  I have a lot of trouble with myfeet.

Fibromyalgia - Healing the Challenge!


Mary's Story

Diagnosis of fibromyalgia in 1986 was a relief for Mary Moeller after more 
than 10 years of symptoms and frustrated doctors. At that time she was told 
to go home and exercise to keep her muscles strong, meditate for pain 
control, and take antidepressants for her depression. A mother of two, ages 
6 and 1, Mary had no choice but to "keep going". She religiously did her 
exercises and pain control imaging, although each year she could feel her 
body becoming weaker as the pain continued to increase. Her memory seemed to 
get worse each day, and sleeping through the night was non-existent. With a 
nursing background and an interest in more natural means of controlling the 
symptoms, her back yard became her pharmacy.

In 1992, her then 7 year old daughter had become very ill and in 1993 was 
also diagnosed with fibromyalgia. For the sake of her daughters health as 
well as her own, Mary took dramatic steps to study the causes of their pain 
and symptoms, and made some dramatic discoveries.

Today she feels better than she has for 20 years, and has dedicated her life 
to helping others learn to put their lives back together. She has worked to 
find some of the answers needed to keep symptoms at bay for herself as well 
as her daughter.

With the help of many health professionals, Mary has put together a program 
to help others with fibromyalgia. These programs, which are conducted nation 
wide, offer help and hope for others who have been afflicted with this 
medical "challenge". Join with others as they, with Mary's guidance, learn 
how to climb their hill to recovery.


Hugh Greenfield:


For all those individuals who are suffering with FMS and their who suffer 
right along with them from this insidious disease--there is hope. I am 
living proof!

As briefly as possible, in retrospect, I am one of those individuals who 
most-likely was born with FMS. My birth mother has FMS. I have had most of 
the symptoms from my earliest recollections. However, I was not properly 
diagnosed with FMS until 1991 when I was 43 years old. Even then, when 
properly diagnosed by a Rheumatologist who was familiar with FMS, I still 
contined to have multiple symptoms. My family physician was also acquainted 
with FMS and did prescribe certain drugs and a specific lifestyle. That 
regime did work somewhat. Yet, I still endured symptoms such as chronic 
fatigue, chronic pain, irritable bowel, tingling, insomnia, and some of the 
emotional and cognitive problems. I nor my doctor had adequate knowledge 
about FMS, therefore, we could not battle it effectively.

Looking back over my childhood, adolescence, and into adulthood, I now know 
the "why" that certain events occurred, why other things did not happen, 
such as difficulty learning even though I have qualified for Mensa, why even 
though having well above-average athletic ability, I was always injured, in 
pain, or terribly fatigued. Why I had trouble obtaining a good night's slep 
then awakening in the morning refreshed and ready to seize the day. Why 
during law school I had trouble remembering the huge amount of information 
that I was expected to retain and display. Now, armed with the proper 
knowledge and the effective treatment regime, I can effectively battle this 
disease. Now it seems quite logical. Finally!

In October of 1993, I was involved in a severe automobile accident. This 
resulted in my sustaining multiple physical and cognitive injuries. Surgery 
was eventually required whereby I am now walking around with stainless steel 
where bone used to be. Besides the physical and cognitive injuries, the FMS 
was "triggered". It eventually surpassed the other injuries in severity and 
totally took over my body. This is not unusual in high-impact auto 
accidents. The FMS was now out of control. My health was starting to 
decline. This process began to snowball with grave consequences circa 1995. 
I expended a great amount of energy, which I did not have, time, and money 
trying to "get better". I had been to numerous doctors including those at 
the Cleveland Clinic Foundation. Nothing was working. My immune system was 
now deteriorating. Consequently, I was contracting other "things" as an AIDS 
patient would. The chronic fatigue eventually debilitated along with the 
opportunistic secondary infections. At this point, not only was a drag on 
myself, but also to my wife Laura. This too weighed heavily on me which 
created more stress.

Eventually, I found my way to Mary Moeller. She began counseling me by 
telphone. About this time in 1997, she had just completed her first book 
entitled, FIBROMYALGIA COOKBOOK. She sent me a copy. Immediately, I started 
to follow the program. I then started to obtain some relief from the 
symptoms. I follow the program outlined in Mary's book to this day. I know 
that to maintain good health and a quality life, that I will have to follow 
this regime for the balance of what I hope is a very long and fulfilled 
life. I do so gladly. What is it worth to have some discipline?

My health was rebounding. Mary's program was working. However, I thought 
that I also needed to be treated by an M.D. who specialized in the treatment 
of FMS. This lead me to Jacob Teitelbaum, M.D. He has been treating me since 
July, 1998 with outstanding success. Mary knows him well.

Thanks to God, Mary Moeller, R.N., and Jacob Teitelbaum, M.D., I am taking 
my life back! I am winning the war against FMS. It has not been an easy road 
to travel. The bumps have been easier to take thanks to a loving and 
supportive wife. I owe her so much. Where before proper treatment I was 
merely existing with no hope, now, life is taking on meaning again and I am 
full of hope!

Presently, I am exercising, interacting with my beloved wife and others, 
performing pro bono legal services, acting as an advocate for those with 
FMS, and formulating career plans after having none for over five years. 
Further, I just completed the first draft of a book I authored. You can 
expect the same by being armed with the proper knowledge and participating 
in effective treatment administered by individuals such as Mary and Jacob. 
Remember though, you are primarily responsible for your health. They can 
start you on the right road.

Lastly, I want to share my thought that you should never give up on God nor 
yourself--especially with respect to your fighting this disease. There is a 
Latin phrase that is taped to my roll-topped desk that I read and think 
about daily, " NEC ASPERA TERRANT". Translation--"FRIGHTENED BY NO 
DIFFICULTIES". You can win this war. Good luck and God Bless you.

Best regards,

Hugh Greenfield

By Yvonne Keeny

My initial symptoms appeared about 1984. As the disease progressed I had my 
share of symptoms, but I had no idea what was causing them – nor did I 
realize that they were interconnected. I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis 
in 1986. In October ‘96 it dawn on me that arthritis is in the joints, not 
in the muscles. (I ached all over and had suffered with chronic fatigue for 
8-9 years.) That’s when I picked up a book on arthritis and discovered a 
full-page illustration of the body complete with tender points and a 
description of fibromyalgia. It looked more like me than my most recent 

I immediately made an appointment with my doctor. He did some tests to rule 
out other possibilities and confirmed my suspicions. After six more months 
of medication my condition was continuing to deteriorate. During that time I 
had read several books and articles on conventional treatment of FM. I went 
to a support group meeting that focused on coping. A friend of mine gave me 
a booklet from her rheumatologist, Coping With Fibromyalgia where I read, 
"There is no medication to cure fibromyalgia. People with chronic pain are 
therefore encouraged to look beyond pills to find other ways of managing 
their lives." All together, it was an eye opener for me. I began to look for 
something to prevent the symptoms instead of just masking them.

Then in October l997 I attended one of Mary Moeller’s seminars. There I 
discovered she and her daughter had been symptom free for three years. Her 
experience was the second confirmation that I was headed in the right 
direction. Mary had it down to a fine science and had written a 120-day 
guide to go by. This program was working! Whatever she had, I wanted it – 
the Daily Guide to Becoming Healthy Again, the newsletter and the tape! I no 
longer had to spend hours poring over volumes of material. I was so excited 
I even signed up to start a support group as I prayed for strength to 
fulfill that commitment.

I am still in awe because I have my life back! I now have more energy than 
I’ve had in years. I’m totally pain free most of the time and I am able to 
function normally again. I attribute my healing to the grace of God. I took 
the time to study and learn. He gave me the tools and I used them. I truly 
believe He sent people into my life to guide and encourage me. I am living 
proof that people with FM/CFS can get better! In January 1998, six months 
after beginning my natural road to recovery, I was able to start the GETTING 
WELL Support Group and to begin making a contribution to others who suffer 
from this disease. According to a recent survey of our support group, 100% 
of those who have followed this program for 2 months are beginning to feel 
better in at least one area. May God bless you as he has blessed me and many

Hi Mary,

I'm writing to say thank you for the seminar you held in St. Louis. I 
attended the second session and left feeling more encouraged than I had been 
in years. Since that day, I have changed my diet completely and have been 
eating primarily fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains and fish.

I have had fibromyalgia for about 5 years and have struggled with finding a 
way to get well. I gave up all caffeine a year ago and have been taking a 
deep water aerobics class and stretching exercises for about 2 years, went 
to physical therapy, took magnesium and malic acid, a variety of 
antidepressants, etc. etc. I was willing to make any changes to feel well 
again, but no one seemed to have answers. The connection to the immune 
system makes total sense to me; I am doing much better and am no longer 
embarrassed to tell others that I have this dreadful condition. I'm sleeping 
better and have been alert with NO fatigue for a week. I pray that it 
continues and have passes on your methods to others I know.

Most importantly, I'm regaining my self-confidence. I have always believed 
that there was a physical reason for my pain and fatigue, but my husband, 
friends and family had tired of my illness long ago and thought that I just 
needed to change my mental attitude. I am very strong willed and disciplined 
and nothing I did could "will" me to get better.

I now feel that I am finally on the road to total recovery and I simply 
can't thank you enough. If there is ever anything that I can do for you, 
please call on me. I am in the field of training and course development, and 
I plan to send in the application to lead a GWSG. I hope that in this role, 
I too will be able to help others in their quest to get well.

I bought your new nutrition guide and look forward to trying the recipes.

With gratitude,



Dear Mary,

I've been so blessed by attending the workshop that you conducted in Sioux 
Falls. I have followed the "cookbook" and appreciate all of the wonderful 
suggestions and thoughts that you have compiled. I must admit that it takes 
a tremendous amount of "wanting to" but it is worth it. The exercises and 
walking were difficult to accomplish in the beginning, even when I was out 
of town, I kept working at the guidelines you have outlined in the 
"cookbook". The day I began the program, the intensity of pain was a ten, 
and now, 35 days later, the pain intensity is a five. The "cookbook" idea is 
marvelous as it assists one in encouragement as the check mark is placed 
besides the activity or the suggestion has been completed. Each part of the 
plan is important and has been very helpful to me in the getting well 
process including the foods that one consumes. I am continually try create 
new recipes of healthy foods that don't taste taste healthy.

Subject: ANEMIA


Lily, aged 35, came to Marie Hoshimi-Wilkes, O.M.D., N.D., Ph.D., with a 
diagnosis of anemia and thalassemia (a genetic allergy to iron, supposedly 
incurable). She had severe migraines, digestive problems, and sleeping 
difficulties; her hands and feet were always cold and would go purple when 
especially chilled; she was unable to gain weight; and her shoulders and 
back always felt constricted.

Dr. Hoshimi-Wilkes started treating Lily twice weekly. First she inserted 
acupuncture needles at the points on Lily’s back corresponding to 7 internal 
organs; then she burned artemisia leaf (a procedure called moxabustion) over 
these same points. The goal was to strengthen the function of the internal 
organs, disperse stagnant energy, and improve blood and energy circulation 
to the head and extremities.

Once weekly, Dr. Hoshimi-Wilkes inserted acupuncture needles at the specific 
body sites of discomfort, including Lily’s shoulders and back of the neck. 
Then she focused green and violet light beams onto these same points. Next, 
she gave Lily 2 Chinese herbal formulas, including donq quai (for blood 
circulation) and angelica (for headaches).

Lily followed this regimen for a month, but even after the first visit, her 
headaches became less intense; soon after, her digestion improved, she was 
able to gain weight, and as her peripheral circulation improved, her hands 
became warmer. After several weeks, Lily experienced a healing crisis, says 
Dr. Hoshimi-Wilkes, when she underwent a four-day bout with the flu 
accompanied by intense headaches. This was a positive sign that her body was 
staging a major detoxification.

Dr. Hoshimi-Wilkes applied more acupuncture and color therapy, and gave Lily 
homeopathic and flower essence remedies for her acute symptoms. A month 
later, a conventional medical test revealed that Lily was no longer allergic 
to iron, meaning that Chinese medicine, expertly applied, had reversed a 
condition that was believed to be incurable.

After 10 years of clinical experience with 165 AIDS patients, H.E. Sartori, 
M.D., and H. Hugh Fudenberg, M.D., conclude that treatment with ozone and a 
multimodal program can produce a 95% success rate in terms of normalizing 
laboratory test results and the physical and mental well-being of patients.

They call their AIDS treatment approach Life Science Universal (LSU) and it 
includes a 12-day ozone program (30-35 mg daily of ozone per 154 pounds of 
body weight, delivered intravenously), supplementation with vitamins, 
minerals, and herbs, psychological counseling, “reconditioning” (which 
involves a 12-step goal-setting program), internal energy exercises, and a 
mostly vegetarian diet with no dairy products. In an addition, they use 8 
adjunctive therapies, such as homeopathy, Chinese herbs, acupuncture, coffee 
enemas, heat therapy, thymus extracts, and feedback control electrical 
stimulation (including ear acupuncture using electric currents), when 

Of 119 patients for whom post-treatment laboratory results were available, 
53 (45%) had their T4 immune cells return to normal; other key blood factors 
also became normal again. For another 46 patients (39%), their T-cell count 
increased by at least 200. Of 91 patients graded HIV-positive, 75% saw their 
conditions change to HIV-negative after completing the program. Most of the 
patients receiving this treatment “showed a significant improvement of their 
general well-being and of most of their clinical symptoms,” state Drs. 
Sartori and Fudenberg.

Dr. Jörg Birkmayer, M.D., of Vienna, Austria, conducted a clinical trial 
with 17 Alzheimer’s patients, treating them for 8-12 weeks with NADH 
(nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide). First identified in 1934, this is a 
coenzyme chemical, naturally found in human cells which is necessary for 
energy production. In Alzheimer’s patients, NADH cellular activity is 
25%-50% lower than in healthy individuals of comparable age. Therefore, 
boosting NADH levels of Alzheimer’s patients should reduce the symptoms and 
halt the development of Alzheimer’s, states Dr. Birkmayer.

Dr. Birkmayer gave NADH at a dosage of 10 mg once a day, 30 minutes before 
breakfast. After only 2 weeks of NADH treatment, Dr. Birkmayer observed a 
240% increase in NADH activity at the cellular level in his patients; there 
were also noticeable improvements in their mental functions. Various 
clinical tests of mental ability further revealed dramatic improvements, 
even in those patients who had the most severe form of dementia. In over 
3000 individuals who have taken NADH, not a single side effect has been 
reported; NADH appears to be safe even at levels 7000 times higher than the 
recommended dose, says Dr. Birkmayer.

Subject: ASTHMA


Childhood asthma may be an allergic reaction to impaired digestion and lack 
of proper enzymes, reports Jonathan V. Wright, M.D., of Tahoma Clinic in 
Kent, Washington. He bases this on his treatment of Bobby, aged 7, who had 
suffered with asthma for most of his life.

In the past 2 years, Bobby had been rushed to the hospital 5 times for 
asthma attacks and he used his inhaler frequently. Previous doctors had him 
eliminate dairy products, sugars, food chemicals, and refined carbohydrates, 
and to rotate specific foods. In addition, Bobby’s parents give him daily 
dosages of vitamin B12 (1000 mcg in 3 doses), magnesium (125 mg, 3 times), 
vitamin B6 (50 mg, 3 times), vitamin C (1000 mg, 3 times), a high-potency 
multiple vitamin-mineral (1/3 adult dosage, 3 times), and cod liver oil (1 
tablespoon). This regimen had improved his condition by only about 50% when 
they brought him to Dr. Wright.

Dr. Wright pointed out that research published in 1931 showed that of 200 
asthmatic children, 80% had digestive problems, specifically, low amounts of 
pepsin and hydrochloric acid in the stomach. This deficiency slows down 
digestion and nutrient absorption and turns foods into allergy-producing 
substances in the body; the allergies then generate the asthma. Also, when 
the stomach functions poorly, vitamin B12 absorption is limited when taken 

Dr. Wright gave Bobby vitamin B12 through injections, knowing that for 50% 
of his patients, this approach eliminates wheezing, and for 30%, it produces 
major improvements. Six months later when Bobby’s wheezing was gone, Dr. 
Wright had him take pepsin and hydro-chloric acid tablets, keeping the 
vitamin B12 injections at maintenance level and continuing with the oral 
supplements described above. “All of this was several years ago, and he 
remains free of asthma,” states Dr. Wright.

A diagnosis of colon cancer does not have to mean surgery and the discomfort 
of colostomy, states Edward Leyton, M.D., of Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Dr. 
Leyton treated William, aged 62, who came to him with a diagnosis of colon 
cancer. He had gnawing abdominal pains, severe coughing spasms, mucus, pus, 
and bleeding from the bowel. However, William did not want surgery and was 
willing to try alternatives.

First Dr. Leyton put William on a special diet, excluding meats, dairy 
products, wheat, alcohol, caffeine, tobacco, drugs, processed foods, and 
sugars, and emphasizing fresh vegetables, fruits, grains, and legumes.

Then Dr. Leyton prescribed a series of nutritional supplements, including 
Ultrabalance™ Protein Formula (2 tablespoons, 3 times daily); Herbulk™ (3 
tablespoons, 3 times daily); Viokase® (lipase enzymes, 2 tablespoons, 2 
times daily, with meals); selenium (200 µg daily); zinc gluconate ( 50 mg 
daily); vitamin E (400 I.U. daily); vitamin C (4000 mg daily); bovine 
adrenal and thymus extract; and beta carotene (50,000 I.U. daily). In 
addition, William gave himself 5 water enemas and one coffee enema every day 
to stimulate the excretion of toxins from his intestines and liver.

The treatment succeeded. Technically, this means William’s cancer has been 
controlled, not cured, but not only is William still alive and healthy 8 
years after his diagnosis, he is able to work 12-hour days as a farmer. His 
bowel symptoms return in much reduced form only when he deviates from his 
diet. William has already lived more than 5 years beyond the “expected” 
survival time for this type of cancer, states Dr. Leyton. “He has had no 
conventional medical intervention, which means that his survival can only be 
due to nutritional or attitudinal changes.”

ASTHMA , oxygen therapies

A 14 year old girl came to William Douglass Campbell, M.D., of Atlanta, 
Georgia, with severe asthma. She couldn't speak, she was sweating profusely, 
she looked pale and terrified, and she was straining to breathe-she was 
having a life-threatening asthma attack. Five years of taking a conventional 
drug had brought no improvement and left her chronically sleepy.
Dr. Campbell immediately put the girl on an intravenous hydrogen peroxide 
drip. Then,
drawing 100 milliliters of her blood, he exposed it to ultraviolet light, 
then reinfused it into her blood stream. Within 2 hours, the girl was 50% 
better and by the next morning her parents told Dr. Campbell she was 
perfectly recovered. Two years later she remained asthma-free. "The 
combination of hydrogen peroxide and treating the drawn blood with 
ultraviolet light is called Photox (or photophoresis) treatment and has been 
available as a safe, proven, and effective medical treatment since 1920," 
says Dr. Campbell.

Subject: CANDIDA, intravenous infusions of hydrogen peroxide


Charles H. Farr, M.D., Ph.D., has treated hundreds of patients with chronic 
systemic candida, or yeast infection, using intravenous hydrogen peroxide, 
at his clinic in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

A woman, age 34, had been suffering with systemic yeast infection for 5 
years and had taken a barrage of antibiotics and practiced rotation and 
elimination diets, to no effect. She had vaginal yeast infection, 
intermittent diarrhea, headaches, acne, lethargy, joint pain, mental 
confusion, menstrual irregularities, and had been unable to work for 2 

Dr. Farr started her on once weekly intravenous infusions of hydrogen 
peroxide; after only 2 treatments, she reported feeling more alert and able 
to concentrate better and that she was feeling much better. After the third 
treatment, her complexion started to improve, all signs of her vaginitis 
disappeared, and her bowel function became normal. After 8 treatments, she 
was free of all the symptoms that had plagued her for 5 years; and after 2 
more months, she went job-hunting.

Manic depression bipolar disorder

The next time you hear a doctor say there is nothing physically wrong with 
somebody who has deep, prolonged depression, the clinical results of enzyme 
therapist Lita Lee, Ph.D., of Eugene, Oregon, should give you grounds for 
reconsideration. According to Dr. Lee, a lack of suitable enzymes can 
produce depression.

Dr. Lee recently helped a woman, aged 50, who had been diagnosed with manic 
depression bipolar disorder and obsessive personality and through a series 
of 12 psychiatric drugs, including Prozac and Lithium. She had gained 100 
pounds, developed breast cancer, and become increasingly confused and 
depressed. Her condition was made worse by the drugs’ strong side effects, 
including nausea and bowel incontinence.

On the basis of a urine analysis, Dr. Lee quickly saw that nutritional 
causes lay at the root of the woman’s depression. Specifically, these were a 
lack of protease enzymes (necessary to digest proteins), intolerance for 
sugar, an underactive thyroid, and a “junk-food” diet replete with sugar. 
Biochemically, undigested protein can produce anxiety, inability to digest 
sugars (sucrase), panic attacks and depression, while an underactive thyroid 
can reduce bodily energy, states Dr. Lee.

She put her client on 2 digestive formulas for sugar intolerance (containing 
lactase, sucrase, and maltase enzymes, brewer’s yeast, gota kola, and 
borage); a protease enzyme formula (plus magnesium and calcium); a formula 
to drain the lymphatic system (rose hips, alfalfa, Echinacea); and a thyroid 
glandular supplement.

What happened was amazing, especially because this client was not 
particularly compliant,” notes Dr. Lee. Within 2-3 weeks of beginning the 
enzyme program, the woman became articulate once more, her humor returned, 
and all conditions began easing up. As long as she remains on the enzymes, 
her emotional condition remains stable, reports Dr. Lee.

Subject: Cleansing the Colon, RICHARD ANDERSON, N.D., N.M.D.

The Key to Excellent Health: Cleansing the Colon

Nothing has changed since Dr. John Harvey Kellogg said a century ago that 
“90% of diseases are due to improper functioning of the colon.

There is much talk today about the importance of colon cleansing, but how 
does having healthy intestines actually improve your health?


It has always been an axiom of naturopathic medicine and most forms of 
natural healing that the digestive system is the foundation for good or bad 
health. As naturopaths, we routinely assume that most people are 
constipated, no matter how many times a day they go.

In fact, nothing has changed since the great natural healer Dr. John Harvey 
Kellogg, founder of the Battle Creek Sanitarium in Michigan, declared nearly 
a century ago that “90% of the diseases of civilization are due to improper 
functioning of the colon.”

In 1987, I developed a four-phase, four-week colon cleansing protocol using 
herbs, electrolytes, probiotics, and nutrients. Since then, an estimated 
70,000 people have done the self-care colon cleanse.

The benefits of cleansing are numerous. One user stated: “The main 
improvements I have noticed are energy levels, vision, hair, skin, mental 
attitude, ability to cope with stress situations—generally I’m a much 
happier and healthier person.”

Other benefits typically cited by users are cessation of menstrual pain, 
migraines, and joint pain, fewer colds, resolution of lifelong sinus 
congestion, skin problems, and breast cysts, weight loss, and improved 
concentration, among many others.

Consider the following cases from our patient files:

Lisa, 55, had suffered from a skin rash for 35 years. She had consulted 
numerous physicians but nothing had reversed this problem. When the 
intestines are clogged and toxic, and the liver, too, is overburdened, 
toxins start backing up into the skin for elimination from the body.

By the time Lisa completed the colon cleanse, 95% of her skin symptoms had 
disappeared. We find Lisa’s experience replicated often; cleansing the colon 
frequently yields softer, more beautiful skin, with long-standing blemishes 
removed permanently in many cases.

Traces of an earlier illness often remain in the intestines as potential 
seeds for a recurrence. During a cleanse, it is not unusual to reexperience 
the symptoms of the former illness as these traces are purged from the body.

Lil, 42, who suffered from chronic bronchitis, could not exercise or even 
walk up stairs without wheezing. During the cleanse, she had a ten-day fit 
of coughing and wheezing, then it abruptly stopped and never returned. By 
emptying her intestines of old, putrefied matter, Lil had purged her body of 
the seeds of her recurrent bronchitis.

Margot, 47, had been beset by intense hip pain for seven years, such that 
she needed a cane to walk. X rays showed that the cartilage was worn off the 
head of the femur (thigh bone connecting to the hip bone) and the nerves in 
that area were pinched. Margot had tried numerous alternative therapies but 
was still relatively crippled.

Margot reported that on the second day of the cleanse, 50% of her pain 
disappeared and she no longer needed her cane; on the third day, she was 
able to perform gentle stretching exercises; and over the next several 
months, Margot’s pain continued to diminish leading her to declare: “For the 
first time in seven years, I’m seeing the reversal of the downward spiral.”


What happens in a colon cleanse to produce these benefits?

Merely consider three facts about the intestines. First, if stretched out to 
their full length, the large and small intestines together would measure 25 
feet long. Second, the total surface area in the intestines (made larger by 
myriad folds) capable of absorbing nutrients is the size of a tennis court.

Third, the intestines can store a vast amount of partially digested, 
putrefying matter (as well as drugs and other toxic chemicals)—for decades 
even. Some intestines, when autopsied, have weighed up to 40 pounds and were 
distended to a diameter of 12 inches with only a pencil-thin channel through 
which the feces could move.

That 40 pounds was due to caked layers of encrusted mucus mixed with fecal 
matter, bizarrely resembling hardened blackish-green truck tire rubber or an 
old piece of dried rawhide. I call this mucoid plaque. This mucoid plaque, 
when it is removed during an intensive colon cleanse, often shows ropelike 
twists, striations, overlaps, folds, creases—the shape and texture of the 
intestinal wall.

Mucoid plaque may vary considerably, depending on the chemical conditions in 
a person’s intestines. It may be hard and brittle; it may be firm and thick; 
tough, wet, and rubbery; soft, thick, and mucoid; or soft, transparent, and 
thin; it can range in color from light brown, black, or greenish-black to 
yellow or grey, and sometimes emits an intensely foul odor.

One client I know, in the course of a month-long colon cleanse, passed a 
single length of mucoid plaque 15 feet long; another client excreted a total 
of 11 pounds of mucoid plaque during a cleanse. It is not unusual to pass a 
total of 35 to 45 feet of plaque, often in the last week. In our clinical 
experience of monitoring thousands of intensive colon cleanse programs over 
the last 14 years, most people pass a staggering amount of this strange 

I coined the term mucoid plaque, meaning a film of mucus, to describe the 
unhealthy accumulation of abnormal mucous matter on the walls of the 
intestines. Conventional medicine knows this as a layering of mucin or 
glycoproteins (made up of 20 amino acids and 50% carbohydrates) which are 
naturally and appropriately secreted by intestines as protection from acids 
and toxins.

However, mucoid plaque is different from the mucosal lining (mucosa) of the 
gastrointestinal tract. The latter acts as a necessary buffer to the 
gastrointestinal wall and as a lubricant for peristalsis; it is also 
responsible for the secretion of mucins which comprise mucoid plaque. The 
cells of the outermost layer of the mucosa (the epithelium) stay fresh and 
vital, renewing themselves every four to seven days.

It sounds paradoxical, but medical research indicates that mucoid plaque is 
a normal self-defense measure—natural protection from unnatural toxins.

Evidence indicates that mucoid plaque, with the possible exception of that 
found in the stomach, is unnatural to the healthy body and is found only 
after the body has moved away from perfect health and into a diseased state. 
The theory goes that if you were completely healthy, your system would 
produce no mucoid plaque because it wouldn’t need to.

When the body has been chronically subjected to (or put under attack by) 
drugs (such as aspirin or alcohol), salt, heavy metals (including dental 
mercury), toxic chemicals, parasites, harmful microbes and their toxins, and 
circulating immune complexes (immune cells locked onto undigested particles 
or foreign substances in the bloodstream), it produces mucoid plaque to 
protect itself.

The trouble is once the mucoid plaque is created, for whatever biologically 
important reason, it is not routinely excreted from the intestines. Instead 
it lodges in the numerous folds and crevices of this large organ and can 
remain there for many years. Over time, the mucoid plaque grows thicker, 
firmer, and more widespread—colonizing, as it were, the tennis court–sized 
interior of the intestines. Old feces adhere to the plaque and are not 
removed during a normal bowel motion.

The plaque slows down intestinal action, both waste excretion and nutrient 
absorption. It can harbor pathogens, including bacteria and parasites, which 
actually hide underneath the plaque; it may block the normal outflow of 
lymph and mucin drainage. It binds toxins to itself and contributes to bowel 
toxicity, slowly emitting toxins into the bloodstream. Finally, plaque 
creates a friendly environment for disease, in some cases for colon cancer 
and gastric carcinomas.

Gradually your immune system is weakened as the chronically toxic bowel 
environment destroys useful bacteria. Your liver becomes overburdened by the 
unprocessed intestinal toxins, and nerve meridian points in the intestines 
related to hundreds of other parts of the body are compromised.

A toxic bowel results in toxic blood and lymph, toxic organs and cells, and 
toxic function. The bowel “feeds” every organ, tissue, and cell in our 
bodies, so when the quality of feeding from the digestive system is 
contaminated or of poor quality, the cells and organs elsewhere in the body 
will be compromised and grow sluggish and inefficient.

So while mucoid plaque is “natural” in that the intestines produce it, it is 
most unnatural in that the presence of a large amount of it indicates a high 
degree of intestinal ill health. When the intestines are ill, you will be 

Here is a concise review of the essential elements you need:

Assess Your pH—This is a chemical measurement of your body’s acidity or 
alkalinity and, to a certain degree, your level of toxicity. The simplest 
way to assess your pH is by moistening a specially prepared (litmus) paper 
with your tongue; the color it turns correlates with pH values.

Reduce Your Eating—Generally, as you move further into the program you 
should eat less. This enables your body to focus on clearing out the toxins 
and old fecal matter without the distraction and energy output of digesting 
new foods. Each successive stage in the program involves stricter dietary 
controls and a higher intake of supplements and fresh juices with a 
correspondingly deeper cleansing.

Herbal Laxative—You need a formula to soften and break up toxic waste 
material while detoxifying cells. An herbal combination that works well for 
this (when mixed in the proper way) includes plantain, cascara sagrada, 
barberry, peppermint, sheep sorrel, fennel seed, ginger root, myrrh gum, red 
raspberry, rhubarb root, goldenseal, and lobelia. This herbal formula 
prepares the mucoid plaque for removal and neutralizes stored intestinal 
toxins such as pesticides, drugs, and heavy metals. It also helps cleanse 
the liver and other body tissues.

Herbal Nutrition—At the same time, you need to bolster your system’s ability 
to detoxify. An effective herbal formula for this works as a vitamin 
supplement and includes alfalfa, dandelion, shavegrass, chickweed, 
marshmallow root, yellowdock, rosehips, hawthorn, licorice root, Irish moss, 
kelp, and two digestive enzymes, amylase (digests carbohydrates) and 
cellulase (digests plant fiber).

Bentonite—Liquid clay derived from volcanic ash, bentonite taken orally is 
highly effective in absorbing toxins from the intestines and removing them 
from the body.

Psyllium Husk Powder—This fibrous bulking agent forms a gel when mixed with 
water. While the herbal laxative and nutritional formulas loosen the mucoid 
plaque, and bentonite pulls out and absorbs toxic debris, psyllium helps 
push the toxins and waste materials out of your body.

Probiotics—Your intestines need certain “friendly” bacteria (probiotics) to 
perform all of their functions, including the suppression and elimination of 
pathogenic microorganisms. Probiotics can also help restore alkalinity to an 
acidified intestinal tract thereby assuring that electrolytes will not be 
lost because of intestines overrun with acidic bacteria. A particularly 
helpful probiotic is Bifidobacterium infantis.

Electrolytes—Your body depends on the essential alkaline minerals potassium, 
sodium, calcium, and magnesium to remove toxic acids, maintain fluid balance 
in cells and the bloodstream, and control pH, hormone secretion, nerve 
conduction, and other functions. An effective way to deliver alkalinizing 
electrolytes is via dehydrated juice of beets, celery, and carrots, combined 
with goat milk whey concentrate, fig powder, and lecithin.

Antioxidants—As the intestines begin to purge themselves of old matter and 
mucoid plaque, large amounts of toxins and free radicals are released. It is 
prudent to take an antioxidant formula while doing the colon cleanse to help 
your system clean up these released toxins. Good antioxidants to include are 
milk thistle, curcumin (from turmeric), Ginkgo biloba, grape seed extract, 
pine bark extract, vitamins C, E, and B6, bioflavonoids, lipoic acid, 
coenzyme Q10, zinc, and chromium.

Dietary Changes—First, I generally encourage people to not eat meat in order 
to reduce acid-forming dietary input. Second, I suggest people reduce 
grains, potatoes, yams, and sweet potatoes for 30 days after they have 
completed the colon cleanse. Third, I recommend a raw foods diet maintained 
whenever possible, ideally based on home-grown organic fruits and 
vegetables. A raw foods diet is rich in digestive enzymes and encourages the 
body to continue detoxifying.


Is there a connection between old emotions and colon cleansing?

Yes. You will find that in many cases a colon cleanse will purge old 
emotions and attitudes stored in the intestines.

Consider this case: Jessie, 20, was a vegan yet was bothered by digestive 
problems and candidiasis. Candidiasis, or the overgrowth of Candida albicans 
in the intestines, is a condition often reversed by an intense colon 
cleanse. During the first two weeks of the cleanse, Jessie began feeling 
better, but the turnaround came in week three. Jessie passed what looked 
like three white cotton balls (presumably Candida masses lodged in her 
colon), and thereafter had no more candidiasis symptoms.

In addition to her physical improvements, Jessie had an emotional benefit as 
well. She felt an increase in will power, a clarity in her feelings, a new 
desire to be of service to others, and a release of long-held resentments.

These points highlight an important aspect of colon cleansing. Many people, 
after completing a cleanse, feel energized, uplifted, and freed of old 
patterns, thoughts, feelings, and memories that have held them back. When a 
person is on a course of personal growth and wants to change their 
consciousness but is stuck in old negative patterns of thinking and feeling, 
there is nothing that will get them unstuck and change them faster than a 
colon cleanse.

In my observation of many individuals doing the colon cleanse, a negative 
state of consciousness is often, at an energy level, at the root of whatever 
physical problem they suffer from. Every thought or feeling we have has the 
potential of moving from the mind into the physical structure of the body 
where it can provoke illness. I estimate that about 70% of those doing the 
intensive colon cleanse will experience long-forgotten memories and buried 

Often the memories and emotions surface into awareness with all their 
original charge and soon afterwards you pass a large section of mucoid 
plaque. As it passes out of your body, so go the emotions. In most cases, 
you don’t reexperience those particular emotional memories.

Here is what I think happens. It is as though you can magnetize proteins or 
undigested food left in the intestines with certain thoughts and feelings. 
These proteins hold onto the feelings for as long as the proteins remain in 
the intestines, and the old emotions and thoughts continually radiate 
through the body and mind.

They remain literally—tangibly—stuck in your body, somehow bound up with the 
mucoid plaque and contributing, though not often usefully, to the 
personality. Both the individual’s biochemistry and psyche are continuously 
negatively affected by these residues of emotionally magnetized matter.

Let’s say you were 13 and had a traumatic or deeply embarrassing experience. 
At some level, every cell in your body was affected by the emotions of that 
event. It is conceivable that some intestinal matter imprinted by that 
experience remains in your intestines, wrapped inside mucoid plaque and 
bearing the memory of the original pain (even though you are now 45 and 
barely remember the episode).

The personality and one’s operating belief system, after all, are controlled 
mainly by a massive accumulation of past thoughts and feelings. To a large 
extent, intestinal matter helps hold these feelings in place. The colon 
cleanse, by purging the intestines of the mucoid plaque, flushes out this 
accumulation of old negative thoughts and feelings.
