IS "CURING" =
ASPIRINS, VITAMINS, DRUGS?
The "take-an-aspirin -- cure-a-headache" way
of thinking most of us have been conditioned to take for granted,
leads us to believe that all cures work in simple ways. Such an
approach may alleviate pain, infections and simple symptoms,
sometimes even simple illnesses. It does not heal any serious,
ongoing, degenerative and life threatening disease. It is like
playing Russian Roulette.
All substances which are not alive food form
concentrates are drugs. Drugs, work -- temporarily -- but they do
not cure. They stimulates (whip) body functions and create rapid
body changes which may feel like healing. Drugs are appeasing,
disease perpetuating poisons that create smoke screens to body's
real needs and unrealistic expectancies. The only remedies that
cure are those that supply every body and cell, mind and emotional
need, and correct every cause and influence which created your
disease abnormalities and needs.
Serious disease is a serious matter. It is
not to be approached lightly, dabbled at -- try this, try that --
shop from one doctor to another.
There are no quick fixes, magic formulae, short cuts, stereotyped
systems or panaceas. Bodies don't follow systems, formulae or
books. There is no disease that follows a fixed pattern.
Each disease is as different, personal and specific as the finger
prints of the one who is ill. Systems and formulae have to be
adapted to and fitted to the human individuals much as tailoring a
dress or a suit to fit.
To cure disease, the therapy must cure you, according to your
personal needs -- not those of someone else -- not by taking a
remedy that worked for somebody else.
Healing needs change, sometimes within days or weeks. Religiously
following an original prescription cannot provide for these
changes. Prescriptions are not to be considered as carved in
These follow various patterns:
A well formulated health restoring program will
satisfy and saturate all body and cell needs as they existed at
the time of diagnosis. The amounts and doses originally prescribed
will become excessive as the body's needs are filled. Overloading
eventually will cause a person to feel worse, not better. This is
like overeating which causes indigestion.
well formulated health restoring program makes every organ of a
body stronger. These organs will attack the abnormalities and
poisons that caused your disease. They will dump them back into
your tissues and blood stream. As these toxic irritants contact
nerves in that part of your body, they create pain, distress or
new and different symptoms.

patients tend to interpret unpleasant changes, discomforts, and

To the contrary, such symptoms and changes are messages telling

a most judiciously planned therapy may not resolve all the
complexities of a complex illness.
Often it is necessary to proceed stage by stage, handling only the
most serious healing needs at any one time. To treat more than
this can overload a body's healing abilities and create
complications or other problems.
Need for the assistance of other therapists
may arise. No doctor has a total understanding of every aspect of
bodies-minds-emotions. These are infinite in scope and nature.
Therapists must work together as a team. To treat independently
one of another, leaves a danger of omitting some need, of
overloading, of duplicating, or of giving treatments which
conflict with one another.
Do not, on your own, take any treatments, vitamins, minerals,
drugs, or follow diets or therapies. These could conflict with
your doctor's program. Let your doctor know every treatment that
you are using and everything you are doing.
THE MESSAGES OF
Healing is an ongoing, ever changing, growing experience. Bodies
express their serious and immediate body needs by symptoms. The
nature of all changes, both the improvements as well as the
adverse changes, provide a doctor's insights that help him/her to
decide each step you need to take on your pathway to health and
Changes experienced as improvements also indicate that
re-balancing and decreasing of your healing program is needed --
Bodies heal in unusual, sometimes mysterious ways. There is a
wisdom in our bodies that guides them to not attempt to correct
every problem all at once.
As each health problem is resolved, bodies often bring to a
surface and to your awareness, other needs that were not initially
manifest. This means therapy changes.
You may find that therapies do not provide the relief, the
progress and well-being that you expected and need. There are
several possible reasons for this:
Miscommunication or inadequate communication of everything that is
going on in your life, in your body, mind, emotions and
environment and lifestyle. With a little recall you may realize
you failed to or forgot to mention certain factors or problems.
Such details get pushed into the back of one's mind when
overanxious, concerned or suffering. Discuss these with your
You may feel that your communication with your doctor was detailed
and complete. Everybody interprets the meanings of words
differently. Your doctor may have misunderstood you or you may
have misunderstood your doctor. It may be necessary to again
discuss your whole illness.

this magic remedy: On a good sized sheet print four words -- get
on your knees -- join your hands and fervently pray the prayer
of those words. They are "TO HELL WITH IT".
Do not be offended at these words. Your
disease and distresses are like a hell in your life. They came
from hell. At a time when everything is too much for you, is not a
time to start dealing with the worries and anxieties of your
problems. The only thing to do is to send them back where they
belong. Only later, when you are feeling better, you can take them
back onto your shoulders and try to find solutions for them. To do
so in serious disease can become way too much -- an overload that
can block healing. So, if you prefer a Christian
version of this prayer, it would be: "Let Go and let God". Ask
yourself which will help you the most psychologically. You need
one or the other.
