 Through keen observation of life, we can determine the natural process of healing.  We are not at war with disease, for we have observed that the organisms involved in disease are opportunistic. Therefore we focus on prevention through improving the personal environment, making disease less likely to develop. Many in the health field respond to disease with a weapon-like mentality using anti-inflammatories, anti-pyretics, anti-pruritics, anti-histamines, and of course let us not forget the ever present anti-biotics. Natural healing observes and asks: why is the body producing inflammation, fever, itching, and histamine; and how does the body deal with invading organisms.


At the School of Natural Healing we teach that inflammation is part of the healing process and we observe that the body uses inflammation to rid itself of damaged tissue in preparation for the replacement with new tissue. Instead of stopping inflammation we help the body’s circulatory process and help facilitate the removal of the damaged tissue through the eliminative system.


The school trains our students to work with the body, not against it. Instead of stopping a fever we help the body use the heat process to rid itself of the invaders. We understand that macrophage cells recognize the invading organisms and send a chemical signal (IL-1) that initiates a fever which is also the signal that kick starts the immune system by activating T-helper cells.  You cannot have it both ways.  If you block the fever with aspirin or any other drug, then you also block your immune system from ridding the body of the very invaders that started the process.


The body sends out a signal of itching so that the area can be stimulated sufficiently to increase circulation.  Scratching achieves this purpose but can damage skin.  The School of Natural Healing instructs that heat or cold or alternating both can achieve the same purpose of increasing circulation, hence no more need for the body to send more signals (itching).


The school teaches that histamine is produced by the body to quarantine invaders.  If you take anti-histamine you run the danger of releasing the invader to the rest of the body.  We as natural practitioners help the body again through the circulatory and eliminative process.


The definition for anti-biotic, is anti-life.  We as natural practitioners are not against life and we recognize the body’s ability to recognize life that is friendly to itself, from life that is antagonistic. We do not use anti-biotics that kill all life.  The School of Natural Healing teaches its students to trust the body’s discriminatory immune system and rely on time tested foods and herbs that destroy invaders but protect friendly flora.

As natural practitioners we implore you to use the safe and effective procedures taught at the School of Natural healing.  Enroll in the first level and you will have the tools to treat yourself and your family free from the dangers presented by standard medicine.  Take all 22 levels and you will obtain the knowledge necessary to become a blessing to mankind.

November 11th, 2013Help For Arthritis

Jo Francks MH

A woman recently asked me, “What can be done to help the arthritis in my hands?” She showed me that she could only close her hands half way into a fist. I recommended that she use apple cider vinegar in a solution of 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and 1 tablespoon of honey in a glass of distilled water and drink this solution 3 times a day. I also told her about Dr. Christopher’s Joint Formula and that the dosage for this formula is 2 capsules 3 times a day. The herbs in the Joint formula are designed to dissolve deposits, cleanse and relieve pain. They help the body move towards wellness. I forgot about the conversation I’d had with her until I saw her a couple of weeks later. She told me that she had been using the apple cider vinegar solution and the joint formula faithfully since I had told her about them. She showed me that she could now close her hand almost all the way into a fist. Because the change was gradual to her she wasn’t sure if the formulas were helping. I reminded her that she could only close her hand half way the last time we talked. We were both pleasantly surprised at the progress she had made with just using the joint formula and the apple cider vinegar and honey drink.

This reminded me of another incident that happened after teaching a class on herbal health. I was approached by a man who had been using a cane for years. That day he didn’t have his cane. He was very excited to tell me that he had been taking apple cider vinegar every day and his arthritis was clearing up. He didn’t need his cane any more. So many people have been helped by using these simple and safe remedies.

Dr. Christopher recommended the apple cider vinegar and honey drink to many of his clients. It is very good for digestive problems such as GERD. It also helps balance the Ph in the body and it has been used to help build up the friendly flora in the intestines.
