To Aid in the Effectiveness of the Use of Herbs when Treating Serious Diseases and Cancer


~ Leo Roy, M.D., N.D. ~

Determining whether a treatment you are taking is tailored to and in balance with your body and healing needs can NOT be done by guess work. Nobody, no doctor, is a mind reader or a body reader. They can NOT estimate all your body's needs. They can NOT evaluate the hazards and side effects and harm to your organs and vitality reserves by all your stresses nor by all the toxins that saturate your life and your body. They can NOT foresee all barriers or problems that could possibly block your healing.  No doctor can help you without a complete understanding of you.

These are not insurmountable problems.  Your body knows.  (Only your body knows.)  Now, you have to learn how to listen to, read, and interpret, what your body is telling you.

The purpose of this article and the chart provided is to help you do this. Its guidelines will help you derive maximum healing benefits from the special herbal remedies you are taking by guiding you and enabling you in ...

  • Better listening to, reading and understanding your body and its day to day needs;

  • Evaluating the effectiveness of your treatments; how your body is reacting to, and benefiting from, (or not benefiting from) the treatments you are taking;

  • Figuring out what, or how much increases or decreases of your approach(s) to healing you need to make, and when to inaugurate these.

 

The following is a special chart which is a simple tool designed to assist you in determining . .

  • whether your treatments are right for you and in a good balance with your body needs -- or . . . 

  • whether they need to be adjusted, changed, or added to.

  • how to modify dosage and treatments in tune with progress you make or changes you go through.

  • avoid overdoses, underdoses, reactions, healing problems.

 

DIRECTIONS FOR USING THIS CHART

  • Carefully think out all your most important symptoms and disconcerting body problems, changes or abnormalities.

  •  Write each of these into a space on the left side of the page under SYMPTOM / PROBLEMS. It would help (but it is not essential) to put these in order of their seriousness or importance.

  • Every week or two go over this list. Evaluate each symptom. Indicate, as best as you can, the amount of improvement you are experiencing: 0 %; 25 %; 50 %; or more; or getting worse.

  • Use these percentage figures as your guidelines to modify the amounts and the types of remedies you are taking. Do these in the ways indicated in the remaining pages of this booklet.

  • For each symptom or problem, or for your overall improvement, that is only 25 %, double or triple the dosages and amounts of the treatments you are presently taking. 

  • If improvements are around 50 % increase your treatment up to approximately double your previous doses.

  • If improvements correspond to about 75 %, cautiously and moderately increase the amounts of your therapies.

  • If your treatments succeed in making you feel great, even 100 % improved, stay on the same therapy doses for possibly another 1-2 months --- then gradually and cautiously, and progressively and monthly decrease these amounts.

  • If you experience no benefits, or if in any way you experience some unpleasant reactions or distresses or even feel worse, then consider the following . . .

  1. Your treatment is too strong.
    Stop everything for 3-4 days (minimum). Then start again, but on much smaller doses.

  2. Some other problem(s) or cause(s) of your illness still exists, are affecting you adversely or blocking your body's abilities to heal.  It has (they have) not been sufficiently studied or brought to light.

 

More diagnostic information is needed.

Such problems could be: allergies, stresses, diet, lifestyle excesses, toxicities, elimination failures, or a weakness of a body organ -- such as the liver.

 

Body toxins, wastes, debris are not being broken down, neutralized and eliminated as they must. Detoxify, detoxify, detoxify. Sick with any serious or degenerative diseases one can almost never detoxify enough. Your body needs every bit of help it can get. CESSIAC and YUCCALIVE provide superb help.

COUNSELS FOR TAKING HEALING REMEDIES

  • If you are in the early stage of any illness, or if your purpose in using a remedy is to prevent illness, don't use more than the minimal dose indicated on your remedy label.

  • If you are seriously ill, the amounts of remedies to take would probably correspond to the maximum amounts indicated on your remedy label -- or possibly more.

  • Use your Progress Evaluation Chart (above) to evaluate your symptoms or problems and determine amounts of remedies which will give you the most benefits. Slowly increase your dosages until you obtain such benefits.

 

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM A CAREFUL FOLLOWING OF YOUR TREATMENT ...

  • Do not expect immediate or complete changes or relief of illness distresses.

  • Healing generally proceeds at the same speed as growing (from an infant to an adult).

  • Always and only take the smallest amount of any therapy that provides you with the maximum and optimum of wellbeing.

  • Don't ever take more than you need. If 1 or 2 doses makes you feel as good as 3 or 4 doses, don't take the greater amounts.

  • Don't ever force yourself to take treatments, any more than you should allow yourself or force yourself to keep eating foods when your appetite is satisfied and your instincts tell you you have had enough.

  • Stop. Listen to your body. Take a holiday from your treatments. A "remedy sabbath" is good. After a month or so, try going a day or two without your remedy. Take your remedies only 6 days a week. Allow your body a day to rest from its efforts and overloads of healing.

  • After every 10 weeks of treatments stop for 1 - 2 weeks. If, when stopping, you feel worse or experience a setback, listen to your body --- not to books or therapists who can't know your body.

  • Whenever you have reached a "peak" -- a feeling of real wellbeing and have kept on that level for 2 - 3 months, start to decrease the amount of therapy you are taking.

    If, during that period, you experience a reoccurrence of any distresses or symptoms, go back to your previous doses for another couple of months; then try again.

  • When you are following all guidelines and recommendations to the best of your ability, but still experience symptoms or distresses, don't get discouraged or upset. Don't panic. These discomforts don't necessary mean that your treatment is wrong for you -- or that it is harming you. When you are doing everything right, what feels like a wrong is the wrong (the toxins and the causes of your illness) coming out. These could be what are called -- "healing crises" or "healing reactions".

    Such periods are usually short lived. Only if they continue on for a long time or become distressing, then promptly contact your doctor or health consultant. Something needs to be changed or balanced differently.

  • It is not realistic to expect satisfactory healing when, at the same time as you are taking natural remedies, herbs, food concentrates, supplements, and/or a good diet, you also take drugs, either on your own, or those prescribed by a doctor.

    All food additives and preservatives, regular table salt, refined, processed, overcooked or microwaved foods, chemicals, chemotherapy, X-­radiations, pesticides, destroy healing abilities (the enzymes) of herbs and natural supplements.

  • On the other hand natural remedies and some herbs can and will neutralize and minimize the harmful, toxic and disabling side effects of drugs and chemicals, including chemotherapy and radiation. Even though the natural treatments don't usually cure under such conditions, they still make it possible to experience a satisfactory and comfortable quality of living.

 

HOW LONG DOES ONE NEED TO KEEP TAKING REMEDIES AND FOLLOWING THERAPIES?

HOW LONG DO BODIES REQUIRE TO HEAL AND REMEDIES TO RESTORE OPTIMAL WELL_BEING?

There are two general rules of thumb . . .

Even if completely free of symptoms and diseases, it still takes 1 year of treatment for every 10 years of illness. Your illness and your contact with its causes, generally started years before you experienced disease symptoms.

A minimum of two years.   It takes something like two years for the body to rid itself of all sick and dying cells and to replace these with new strong healthy ones, and again be assured of ongoing great health.

As long as cells, that have been damaged by your illness or from the side effects of drugs and other pollutants and hazards, remain in your body you are not completely free of disease or the possibilities of its reoccurrence.

As long as you continue to live in the conditions and environments of our civilization, constantly affected by the pollutants, excesses, stresses, unhealthy lifestyles and abnormal attitudes and values of living, we all remain constantly threatened with serious diseases -- even cancer. (One out of three persons living today will die of cancer.)

Having been seriously ill a first time, inevitably leaves one's body with a crippled resistance to disease. It can be important to continue immunity maintaining and disease preventing doses of natural remedies or herbs. It is important to continue to live balanced lives, with good supporting diets, lifestyles free of extremes, and keeping our bodies free of the multitude of pollutants of the times we live in.

Knowledge and understanding are as essential to healing as are remedies. Satisfactory healing is not usually possible without healing wisdom.

 

The taking of herbs and quality foods gives you NO guarantee that your body is obtaining all the nutritional and/or healing benefits it needs from them. Everything you put in. your mouth must be made available and usable to all your body's structures and functions. Only complete digestion does this.

Foods, herbs and supplements you take must never be denatured, overheated, processed, refined, poisoned by chemical fertilizers and/or treated with additives. They should be completely natural.

Foods, herbs or supplements that are not completely usable by your body just pass right through you; you lose all their potential healing benefits. Even worse, any substance that is not completely digested will rot, putrefy in your intestines -- its chemistry and nutritional values all lost.

They build up stagnating piles of toxic residues -- like a swamp. They poison the intestinal walls. They slow down or stop the colon contractions essential to the elimination of our body wastes and toxins. They filter through the walls of the intestines. Via the blood, they are carried to our livers. They poison the liver and stop its healing, nourishing and detoxifying functions. They poison, damage and destroy foods, herbs and supplements that enter into our intestines.

Your mouth, stomach, pancreas, intestines and liver are probably the most excessively used and abused of all organs.  Several times daily we stuff them, and much too often overload them, with good foods, junk foods, foods we are allergic to, (which act like mild poisons) pollutants, food chemicals and additives, drugs from our doctors, or those we take ourselves, the chemicals in the water we drink, lead or iron from the water pipes, chlorine and fluorides (15 times more poisonous than arsenic -- both which contribute to cancer), ions of mercury which constantly dissolve from our teeth fillings -- the list goes on and on.

With all this, can we really still expect healing to proceed normally and effectively. We may need to take some digestive enzymes or liver supplements, with our healing program.

We need to know whether we really need help for our digestion, and if so, how much, and what kind of digestive enzymes our body's need.

 

A SIMPLE and PRACTICAL STOMACH - PANCREAS - TOXIN ELIMINATION TEST

The normalness and efficiency of our digestion and pancreas can be determined simply by the absence of any symptoms of faulty digestion and by the perfect normalness of our stools.
 

Abdominal cramps
                  Burning of stomach
Stomach fullness
                  Heaviness after meals
Burping or gas
                  Fatigue after meals
Stomach aching, discomforts (any kind), anytime
     Right after meals
              2 hours + after meals
Nasal mucus (catarrh) or sneezing after meals
There are any other digestive complaints or problems:

   

A TEST FOR CONSTIPATION:

  1. Use unchewed raw, frozen, or barely cooked corn kernels or nuts. Swallow a handful -- whole.

  2. The next day check bowel movements regularly.

  3. When nuts, or corn kernels appear make a record of . . .

Time of the test meal  _____________    a.m.    p.m.

Time of bowel movements when kernels first appeared Number of hours between test meal to this bowel movement (b.m.) ________________

WAYS THIS CHART CAN HELP YOU MOST:

Knowing how to recognize how well you digest your foods is knowing how effectively your body is using those foods, as well as the herbs or supplements you are taking. It is also knowing how free your intestines are of poisons and how effectively your body is handling or eliminating these.

Use the chart to help you determine if you need any support of your digestive functions -- extra enzyme supplements. The more B.M. abnormalities, the greater the need for either stomach or pancreatic enzymes or both. Start by taking 1 - 2 pancreatic enzymes before each meal.

If the changes in bowel movement characteristics are small and insufficient, try adding an extra enzyme per meal.

If the changes are still not enough, try a stomach digestive enzyme tablet with Hydrochloric acid. Start with only one a day.  If changes are still insufficient increase these only every 3 - 4 days and at one tablet a day at a time.

It is not necessary to fill in the whole chart each week. Choose certain days as digestion-testing days.

Periodically, make notes. Note the changes and progress or lack of progress of your digestion, as well as of the main symptoms and problems of any illness you have.

If the results you notice confuse you, call your doctor or health consultant. Communicate with him/her for more accurate guidelines. Problems, such as this, must be resolved.  If not you may not benefit from other remedies or heal as you expect and must. Without the kind of information your chart (you) provide it is very difficult for a doctor to know which counsels he needs to give you.

When digestion is poor it is better to fill in a whole chart. Insert answers ("",s) at least every second day. Do this until your bowel movements revert to normal.

 


 

The guidelines and charts above provide you a real assurance of acquiring optimal health at the least effort, the least guess work, and often for the least expense, and in the shortest time possible.

     YOUR COMMITMENT
                                                 to
                                                       YOUR HEALING

Degenerative diseases are complicated. Healing is not easy. It can be paralyzed by lack of real understanding, experience and know how. Only your body knows what it needs for healing, and has the inner wisdom and abilities to heal on condition it has the proper support and care.  No doctor can heal you.   But with constant working together a doctor or health consultant could guide you and help provide your body with everything you need for your healing. If there is to be healing there must be a team and ongoing team work.

Make a team with your doctor ...

A HEALING TEAM ---  The OPTIMAL LIVING TEAM

Versus

 The TEAM OF HEALTH SABOTEURS ....

Made up of .........

All the causes of your disease,

All ecological hazards, toxins,

All body poisons and cell debris.

All the undermined, weakened organs of your body.

 


 

10 RULES OF THE GAME OF HEALING

 

  1. Never undertake a healing program alone. Consistently work with your doctor or health consultant.
    He/she who tries to heal him/herself has a fool for a doctor and an idiot for a patient.

  2. Communicate frequently. 
         Every time you feel a need for support.
         Every time you are confused.
         Every time you are concerned or anxious.
         Every time something is not working to your benefit -- as you expected and need.

  3. Never allow negative thoughts, worries, fears to play on your mind. As soon as you are aware of these adversaries working away at you, pass your problems over to your team defense man (your doctor) to attack them.

  4. Never submit to, or tolerate, for more than a day, experiences of pain, distress, uncomfortable reactions, healing crises. Notify your coach (doctor) as to what is the next strategy you require to overcome your problem of that moment.

  5. Never underestimate the amount of poisons, toxins, body wastes that accumulate in your body over the years -- nor the damaging, paralyzing role they play.

  6. Never think that a few periods of elimination and detoxification, a fast, or a few fasts, and will get rid of what took years to accumulate.

  7. Don't let periods of feeling "good" deceive you into believing you can let up on your healing program. It takes two years for sick cells, cells overloaded with toxins and weakened by nutritional deficiencies -- to die off and be replaced by healthy cells.

  8. Don't stop your treatments until your body healing is complete.

  9. Anytime you feel discomfort from any therapy -- it is difficult for you to continue taking supplements or they seem to be overloading your system -- STOP. Cut back. Give your body a rest. Give it a chance to catch up with healing. At least for a few days. Check with your doctor.

  10. Keep your treatments in balance with your body needs. As you feel and function progressively better, gradually taper off supplements, and treatments.

 

DON'T WORRY.

KEEP JOY IN YOUR LIFE.
