August 25th, 2014Herb Syllabus

Dr. John R. Christopher

Master Herbalist Guide

 

The Herb Syllabus is our book that gives in depth information for all the herbs on The School of Natural Healings 100 Herb List. Previously this book was only available to students in the Master Herbalist Course. In 2009 the book was improved and made available through Christopher Publications. From Alfalfa to Yellow Dock, there are 105 herbs covered in the book. The information on each herb includes color photos, a description, historical uses, current information, application, medicinal uses and cultivation of the herb. This is the most comprehensive book on these herbs available anywhere. What a great addition it would be to any library with over 730 pages of valuable information. Many stories on how the herb was used by Dr. Christopher are told within the pages of the book. The following is an excerpt from the section on cayenne.

“Early in Dr. Christopher’s practice, he was called in the middle of the night by a woman whose husband had just passed out from a heart attack. The Doctor told the woman to heat some water, and when he arrived at the house he mixed a teaspoon of Cayenne into the water, propped up the man, and gave him just a little, when he came to, he finished the cup, and within a few minutes felt much stronger. Soon he was well, and became converted to the use of herbs, even buying and running one of the health food stores in Salt Lake City for many years.”

This book is a wonderful reference to help in learning the way of herbs and how to put them to practical use. We are pleased to offer it for a short time at a 30% discount. The assurance of knowing how to take care of yourself and your family is irreplaceable. The use of herbs is a step toward self-sufficiency and independence.

 by Dr. T. Collin Campbell

 

WHOLE is Dr. T. Collin Campbell’s follow-up to his previous release, The China Study. In this paradigm shifting book he takes the evidence of the China Study and explains why the evidence works.   Dr. Campbell’s desire is to awaken within each of us a desire to eat a whole, plant based diet.

 

Following is an excerpt from WHOLE in true T. Collin Campbell style, “If you were in charge of a wealthy and powerful organization dedicated to eradicating cancer, what would you want its positions on cancer research to look like?  Mine would begin with a research program designed to understand the natural biological complexity of this disease, and then would try to take advantage of nature’s tools to restore health…and I’d spend the vast majority of the funds I was given attempting to inform the public about what we do know regarding the role of nutrition in the prevention and treatment of cancer.”

 

Dr. Campbell also asks a very poignant question, “…if we have such overwhelming evidence that everything we think we know about nutrition is wrong, why haven’t our eating habits changed?”

“There is nothing more convincing than experiencing the change for oneself.  We must recognize nutrition as a cornerstone of our health-care system, not a footnote.”

Dr. Campbell’s WHOLE is now available for purchase through Christopher Publications.

Jo Francks MH

In the book Eat to Live by Dr. Joel Fuhrman there are many references to foods that help prevent cancer and other diseases. Following are some quotes from the book.

 

Pg. 5; High protein diet (and diets rich in animal products and low in fruits and unrefined carbohydrates) are likely to significantly increase a person’s risk of colon cancer. Scientific studies show a clear and strong relationship between cancers of the digestive tract, bladder and prostate with low fruit consumption.

 

Pg. 35; Fruit consumption has been shown in numerous studies to offer our strongest protection against certain cancers, especially oral and esophageal, lung, prostate, pancreatic, and colorectal cancer.

 

Pg. 55; Observational studies around the world continue to find that the risk of colorectal cancer is lower among populations with high intakes of fruits and vegetables and that the risk changes on adoption of a different diet.

 

Pg. 62; Raw vegetables and fresh fruits have powerful anti-cancer agents. Studies have repeatedly shown the correlation between consumption of these foods and a lower incidence of various cancers, including those of the breast, colon, rectum, lung, stomach, prostate, and pancreas. This means that your risk of cancer decreases with an increased intake of fruits and vegetables, and the earlier in life you start eating large amounts of these foods, the more protection you get.

Pg. 80; The major cause of all diseases afflicting Americans today is a produce-deficient diet. On any given day, no fruit whatsoever passes the lips of half of all Americans.

Pg. 90; Vegetable and fruits protect against all types of cancers if consumed in large enough quantities. Raw vegetables have the most powerful anti-cancer properties of all foods.

Pg. 160; many diets have people afraid to eat healthful fresh fruits because they contain carbohydrates. Fruit consumption, however, shows powerful dose-response association with a reduction in heart disease, cancer and all-cause mortality.

Pg. 226; a high intake of refined grains in the diet is linked to common cancers. A high intake of fruits has the opposite effect. Fruits protect powerfully against cancer.

 

There are many diets that don’t allow any fruits to be eaten. Some of those diets are anti-cancer diets. Others are weight loss diets. The research I have done points to fresh fruits and vegetables to be the main foods that help prevent cancer and other major illnesses. In order to overcome illness and disease it is suggested that 80 percent of the calories eaten come from fresh fruits and vegetables. Any patient of Dr. Christopher’s who had an incurable illness was put on a diet of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, nuts and seeds and when they followed that diet most of them got well. Hopefully our readers are enjoying the abundance of the fresh fruits and vegetables of the season with the intention of having excellent health and vitality.

October 3rd, 2013Milk A-Z

Robert Cohen

 

 

New to Christopher Publications is the book, Milk A-Z, by Robert Cohen. Robert has taken information from peer-reviewed scientific journals and respected physicians to break the marketing myth of “Milk does the body good.” He has put the research into an easy to read format.

 

The book starts out with A is for Allergies.

 

“At least 50% of all children in the United States are allergic to cow’s milk, many undiagnosed. Dairy products are the leading cause of food allergy, often revealed by diarrhea, constipation and fatigue. Many cases of asthma and sinus infections are reported to be relieved and even eliminated by cutting out dairy.”

Nathaniel Mead, M.D., Natural Health July, 1994

 

Ending with Z is for Zits

 

“As pointed out by Dr. Jerome Fisher, “About 80 percent of cows that are giving milk are pregnant and are throwing off hormones continuously.” Progesterone breaks down into androgens, which have been implicated as a factor in the development of acne…Dr. Fisher observed that his teenage acne patients improved as soon as the milk drinking stopped.”

Frank Oski, M.D., Don’t Drink Your Milk

 

Other topics along the way are; E is for Ear infections, G is for Growth Hormones, O is for Osteoporosis, S is for Sudden Infant Death…., and many more interesting facts from his research.

 

Robert Cohen hopes to wake people up to the real science behind milk, helping people to pay attention to their body’s signals of internal sludge and congestions that may be simply alleviated by saying “NOT MILK!”

September 23rd, 2013The Vaccine Decision

Yvonne L. Salcido MH 

Have you ever felt that vaccines were questionable or are you unsure about whether or not you should have your child vaccinated? Have you ever done any research on the subject? If you would like answers to your questions, the book “Make an Informed Vaccine Decision” by Dr. Mayer Eisenstein, is for you. I believe every responsible parent should read this book to become informed by an expert that does not have a vested interest or agenda and presents the evidence in a concise scientific manner.

Dr. Eisenstein is a Medical doctor who went on to get a law degree and a Masters in Public Health. His purpose in pursuing additional education was to be proficient in interpreting disease data so he could accurately present the facts on the pros and cons of vaccinations. He respects the rights of parents to choose the health care of their family, and wants to protect that right.

This book includes chapters on each different vaccine that is required. These chapters include different manufactures, ingredients, side effects, case histories, facts from the Center for Disease Control, FDA, governmental committees, research and information from the VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System.) For example: Did you know that by age 1 ½ on the current vaccination schedule your precious little baby has already been exposed to 38 different vaccines.

A few great examples of his research are: “The FDA is also aware that aluminum is dangerous. In a critical document on drug evaluation, the following statement is made.” “Research indicates that patients with impaired kidney function, including premature neonates who receive (injections) of aluminum at greater than 4 to 5mcg per kilogram of body weight per day, accumulate aluminum at levels associated with central nervous system and bone toxicity. Tissue loading may occur at even lower rates.” — FDA document”  “This means that for a 6 pound baby, 11-14 mcg would be toxic. The hepatitis B vaccine given at birth contains 250 mcg of aluminum—20 times higher than safety levels! Babies weigh about 12 pounds (5.5kg) at two months of age when they receive 1,225 mcg of aluminum from their vaccines—50 times higher than safety levels!”

In New Jersey in 2009 there was an outbreak of pertussis.  One hundred percent of the children infected had been vaccinated. Now isn’t that amazing. Parents truly need to do their homework to know what would be in the best interest of their child. There are so many amazing statistics that will open your mind to what is really going on. According to the World Health Organization, vaccinated children have a higher chance of getting the disease, than unvaccinated children. According to Dr. William Atkinson, Senior Epidemiologist at the CDC, “Measles transmission has been clearly documented among vaccinated persons. In some large outbreaks…over 95 percent of the cases have a history of vaccination.”

Scientists have known for over thirty years that viral infections such as rubella have been shown consistently to cause diabetes mellitus. Dr. Harris Coulter stated “If the disease can cause diabetes so can the vaccine.”

If you are interested in truth and insuring the good health of your family and future generations, this book would be a wonderful addition to your library.

October 17th, 2012Thrive

Jo Franks M.H.

This week we are announcing a new book that can be purchased through Christopher Publications. The book is called Thrive and was written by Brendan Brazier who has been a professional ironman tri-athlete. He tried many different diets and ways of eating in an effort to decrease his recovery time and to maximize his training. He says that 80% of recovery has to do with diet and discovered that when he stayed on a plant based diet eating mostly raw vegan foods his performances improved and his recovery times decreased. His body was able to recover from the stress of his rigorous workouts quicker so that he was ready to put in more training time. “The result was astounding.” He explains. “Not only did my recovery time plummet but my energy level, strength-to-weight ratio, and endurance shot up…I attribute these exceptionally fast gains to the detailed attention I paid to my diet.”

T. Collin Campbell, author to the China Study said this about Thrive; “Brendon Brazier tells a very important story, one that is vital for the thousands, even millions of individuals who train for athletics only to unnecessarily harm their body and therefore performance through poor nutrition. Thrive is a must read.”

The Thrive diet aims to reduce biological age, increase life expectancy, help reduce body fat and maintain lean muscle, increase energy without coffee or sugar, increase strength and endurance, improve productivity, improve mental clarity, improve sleep quality, reduce sleep requirements, improve resistance to infection, quicken recovery from exercise, reduce or eliminate sugar cravings, increase desire to excel.

Whether you are a professional athlete, exercise occasionally or are interested in beginning an exercise program, this book gives valuable information and nutritional guidelines to follow.  It also includes a twelve week menu plan with recipes. It is a valuable resource for everyone who is looking to improve their health and vitality. It’s a good book.
