The three foods that we eat are carbohydrates, proteins and fats.  Although they are found throughout the food chain they are best utilized from the plants from which they are originally manufactured.  All life depends on plant foods.  Plants also provide essential nutrients such as vitamins and minerals. Plant nutrients are essential because we animals do not produce them. There is an exception, vitamin D, which we manufacture by exposure to the sun. When the sun hits our skin cholesterol (also produced by us) it is converted to vitamin D.  The other exception is vitamin B-12 which is manufactured, not by us, but by the friendly bacteria that inhabits our lower intestines. In a symbiotic way we feed this type of bacteria our mucous and it excretes vitamin B -12. Plants uptake the minerals from the soil, add a carbon bond and an enzyme wrap creating a more absorbable and easier path of elimination. Eating plants is much safer and more efficient than eating dirt (manufactured minerals).

Basically speaking, plant carbohydrates vary in complexity allowing immediate use of glucose (the fuel for our bodies) and other configurations like fructose which needs to be converted to glucose by the liver. Other more complex configurations of carbohydrates take more time to break down providing “time released “energy. Sweet carbohydrate foods like berries and fruit give us immediate energy while less sweet vegetables provide energy later. The more complex carbohydrates found in legumes, grains, nuts and seeds take longer to break down and energy is provided even later.

When carbohydrates are expended the body converts the glycerol from fats to glucose, so long term energy is also available. Mono-saturated, poly-unsaturated and even saturated fats are all necessary and can all be found in plants. Besides fats being used for energy, they also are needed for healthy skin and for the utilization of fat soluble vitamins like A, D, E and K.  Fats are needed for many functions such as body insulation, brain development and blood clotting. Some excellent sources of fats from plants include avocados, macadamia nuts, coconut (wonderful source of saturated fats), Brazil nuts (highest source of selenium) all nuts and seeds.

The other food we eat is protein. Although most of the amino acids in proteins can be used for energy (converted to glucose) the pathway is more complex for a purpose and is used for energy as a last resort. The original purpose for amino acids in protein is to be used to make new cells for all parts of the body. All organs, tissues and bones are dependent on these amino acids as is the production of enzymes that digest food and activate your metabolism and are used to make neurotransmitters and hormones. Protein should not be wasted on making energy.

Let me dispel a common comment which is, “Oh I feel more energized when I eat a lot of protein rich foods.”  It is not because protein is providing energy, it is because protein makes you satiated. This is the good feeling signal that your body gives out to reward you for consuming adequate protein needs. All plants provide protein as well as fats and carbohydrates.  Some excellent protein rich foods include all grains, legumes, nuts and seeds.  Dark green leafy vegetables are rich in protein and again, all plants contain various amounts of protein.

Man and animals need plant life to make and maintain cell structure. Meat exists because plants exist. Man eats meat out of want not out of need.

Quantitative data on nutrient needs are utilized to promote man’s wants and greed to promote and profit from products.

Dr. Christopher often answered seemingly complex questions like quantitative nutrient needs, food combining and protein requirements with the simple phrase, “Ask any gorilla?” Gorillas do not pour over research trying to develop ideal dietary needs, rather, they eat what nature provides. Their diet is mostly plant based, and they die naturally in their old age with all their teeth and hair.

If we return to nature and eat plants in their raw, live state we can receive all the necessary nutrients we need.  These three plant based foods will allow us to die when our time comes, perhaps with all of our hair and teeth.

David Christopher, M.H.

The hero of the Revolutionary War, former first President and by certain accounts the most famous man in the world was actively managing his estate and affairs robustly and in good health at the age of 67. On December 12, 1799 George Washington routinely left his home at 10 am and by horseback attended to his beloved Mount Vernon farms until 5 PM. The weather was below freezing and snowing with just 3 inches of snow on the ground.  In this weather, he also helped move a snow-mired carriage near his home. Upon returning he felt a sore throat and developed hoarseness. However, without removing his damp clothes he proceeded to dinner, which was waiting, and then went on to his evening routines. The next day, Friday, although less invigorated due to the possible acquired cold, he marked trees on the property which were to be removed. He then had a pleasant evening and even joked about his worsening hoarseness. Two o’clock Saturday morning he was chilled, could scarcely speak and breathed with difficulty.  In the morning a servant was dispatched to retrieve Dr. Craik and another servant was dispatched for a Mr. Rawlins who was a local bleeder. Mr. Rawlins removed a half pint of blood and then Dr. Craik upon arriving removed another pint of blood and dosed the former President with calomel (a mercury preparation). Two more Doctors arrived and yes removed even more blood and administered more mercury, purgative enemas and blistering plasters. A fourth bleeding was proposed and immediately protested by Dr. Elisha Dick the youngest of the three doctors. However, he was overruled by Dr. James Craik and a Dr. Richard Brown who then bled George Washington a fourth time and of course administered another round of mercury and another toxic chemical, antimony. It is estimated that half of his blood had been removed. By today’s standards that much loss of blood would result in extremely low blood pressure and would require an immediate transfusion along with intensive care. Medical apologists today say that the General died from bacterial epiglottitis and that an emergency tracheotomy would have saved his life. Perhaps we shouldn’t judge those physicians by today’s standards but we can listen to their own words. Two weeks later Dr. Brown had misgivings and in a letter to Dr. Craik said, “If we had taken no more blood from him, our good friend might have been alive now.”  He added, “But we were governed by the best light we had. We thought we were right, and so we are justified.”  A contemporary British physician John Reid sarcastically remarked that the “current of blood” drained from George Washington reflected the currents of American rivers. He then was critical of the heavy dosing of mercury and the administrations of emetics and blistering to a man in his late 60’s.

In retrospect we should ask if that was the best light available in the 1700s? We do know as a fact that herbalists were present in the 1700s and for that matter in all eras. They were sometimes praised and sometimes ignored. We know that herbalists would have used remedies that were simple such as; lemon grass, rose hips, garlic and onions that could have saved our beloved leader’s life. The emerging Thompsonian doctors could have relaxed the muscles with Lobelia and applied cayenne to the throat to increase circulation. Perhaps the native population could have provided golden seal with its berberine alkaloid that kills bacteria. It is a fact that there was plenty of light and knowledge available in 1799 that could have been used by the Washington family instead of turning to the popular or mainstream doctors of that day with their blood-letting and poisonous practice. At any rate, the sudden agonizing death of George Washington was untimely and a great loss to his family and countrymen.

Juniperus monosperma, or one seed juniper, is a very hardy tree native to the southwestern United States. It can grow to heights of 25 feet and has flat scale-like leaves and bluish-green berries which take two years to ripen. The second year berries are blue, while the first year berries are green.

Dr. Christopher discovered the wonderful medicinal qualities of cedar berries by accident. He had a patient with a kidney problem who couldn’t void his urine. Dr. Christopher told him to use juniper berries to clear up the problem. When the man came back and informed Dr. Christopher that the juniper berries weren’t working they discovered the berries he was using weren’t true juniper berries, they were cedar berries. Cedar berries have one stone and juniper berries have 3 to 7 stones. The man told Dr. Christopher that the berries weren’t doing anything for his kidney condition, but since he had been taking them he noticed he did not have to use as much insulin. Dr. Christopher then began to experiment with cedar berries and discovered that it helped his patients that had diabetes and the ones who had hypoglycemia. Dr. Christopher emphasized that both diabetes and hypoglycemia stem from the same problem – a weak pancreas. From these experiences he came up with his Pancreas formula which helps the pancreas and other affiliated glands that, through malfunction, cause high or low blood sugar. It has always been recommended to use this formula along with the mucusless diet.

I knew a man who had a stroke. Afterwards he was diagnosed with diabetes from some of the tests the doctor had done. He was monitoring it through diet and blood tests to check his blood sugar levels. I gave him a bottle of cedar berry tincture with instructions to take a dropper with each meal. A few months later he went back for a checkup. They gave him results of the tests they had done that day but said nothing about diabetes so he asked, “what about the diabetes?” He was told he didn’t have diabetes. He felt that the diabetes went away thanks to the cedar berry tincture he had been using.

Cedar berries have also been used for digestive issues, skin problems such as acne and psoriasis, and as a blood purifier. They can be used as a tea or tincture internally or externally.

August 18th, 2017Water is Life

Tonya Judd, M.H.

When living a wholistic lifestyle we use water in so many applications: drinking, soaking grains, nuts and seeds, making poultices, healing baths, tinctures, teas, fomentations, water therapy, growing food, sprouting, eye washes, enema’s and cleansing the skin.

The human body is made up of at least 75% water. Water makes up 85-90% of our brain, 92% of our blood and 70% of our muscles. Water is vital to our organs and their optimal function which makes water vital to our survival. We can survive without food for a disputable number of days depending on the level of health and other individualized scenarios. The human body can only “survive” for 3-10 days without water. Water flushes out toxins and carries oxygen and nutrients throughout the body. We breathe out an estimated 1 1/2 cups of water each day. We also lose water each day through sweating, urinating and bowel movements. Water is used in many functions within the body and is known as, “the universal solvent.” Water is used as a “coolant” by evaporating sweat through the skin and can also disperse heat throughout the body.

If we are not replenishing that lost liquid, we may experience: constipation, dry skin, headache, fatigue, low immunity, brain fog, blood pressure fluctuation, blurred vision, hormonal fluctuation, mood swings, feeling hungry even though you have recently eaten, lethargic, low energy levels, aching joints, dehydration and many others.

There are many opinions and many options concerning what type of water to drink: distilled, reverse osmosis, filtered, mineral water, spring water, tap water.

Dr. Christopher taught, “Distilled water flushes the minerals and inorganic salts, which cause sickness, out of the body, where juice and other liquids are not as efficient.”

“There are two types of minerals in the body - live organic minerals that can be assimilated into cell structure, and low-vibrating inorganic minerals that are only accepted into the body and cannot be assimilated. These inorganic minerals cause kidney stones, gall stones, hardening of the arteries, poor eyesight, arthritis, etc. People so often say, ‘But why shouldn’t I use tap water, well, spring, artesian or some other types of hard water to provide minerals for my body?’ These minerals can be accepted into the body but not assimilated because the hard inorganic minerals must go through plant life and by osmosis changed to live, organic minerals which can then be assimilated into the human cell structure.” The body will accept the inorganic minerals but will not be able to assimilate them and over time, these inorganic minerals will build up within the joints, organs and other areas of the body causing the aforementioned ailments. We should be getting our minerals from the abundance of whole, living foods we are eating which can be assimilated by our bodies. Our bodies were not created to assimilate minerals from rocks, shells, etc.

“How much steam distilled water should I be drinking?” When healing or ill, Dr. Christopher suggested drinking 1 ounce per pound of body weight per day. For those who are not ill or cleansing there really is no set rule; the amount you drink varies from person to person. Things to keep in mind are how much you exercise, the climate you live in, the amount of energy you exert doing daily activities, the amount of fresh fruits and vegetables you consume, etc. Pregnant and nursing women need more water as well. There are a couple of ways to tell if you need more water or are dehydrated besides those already mentioned. The first is by the color and clarity of your urine. Although you need to keep in mind that if you are taking a B12 supplement or consuming nutritional yeast, your urine will be a bright yellow color. The second, gently pinch & pull the skin on the back of your hand upward. The skin should bounce back quickly. If it retracts slowly and holds the pinched shape, you need more water!

Another point that needs to be addressed is that sugar laden fruit drinks, coffee and soda do not re-hydrate the body. For every 8 oz. of soda you consume you need to drink 8-12 glasses of water to replace the valuable water loss it extracts from your cells and organs!

At the School of Natural Healing we suggest steam distilled water, reverse osmosis would be our next choice.

August 18th, 2017A Tale Of Two Carrots

David Christopher, M.H.

The Vitamin A content in carrots is unprecedented in the food supply.  No other food comes close.  We are, of course, talking about the Vitamin A precursor beta-carotene that is easily and readily converted by the liver into vitamin A, assuring the body a constant supply with no dangers of overdose. Vitamin A is essential for proper cell division and growth hence its good effects on tooth health, strong bones and healthy skin. It also helps maintain the thin protective mucus membrane that is essential for the body’s first line of defense involving the white blood cell activity of macrophages.

This effect of Vitamin A is particularly noted in the cell structure of the eye and helps prevent diseases like glaucoma, macular degeneration and cataracts. In no small degree other components found in carrots are necessary in the utilization and functioning of Vitamin A, such as Vitamins B, C, E and some newly discovered micronutrients called polyacetylenes. Two of these polyacetylenes named falcarinol and falcarindiol are cardio-vascular protectorates, assuring adequate delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the cell structure of the eyes.

Carrot juice has been used to control cancer growth and many alternative doctors have seen patients cured of cancer by consuming nothing but carrot juice. However, researchers in Finland found that the consumption of the supplement beta carotene actually increased cancer rates in patients that smoked tobacco by 8% over similar patients receiving a placebo. This study followed 29,000 male smokers for 10 years and was reported in the New England Journal of Medicine on April 14, 1994.

Supplemental beta-carotene is separated from all the other compounds in carrots including but not limited to retinols, retinoids, retenal, carotenoids, carotenes, fatty acids, Vitamins C,E,B complex, enzymes, minerals, phyto-sterols and oxygen.

It is this isolation or separation of synthetic carotenes that causes the classic Vitamin A overdose toxicity symptoms of tumor enhancement, joint disorders, osteoporosis, extreme dryness of eyes mouth and skin, enlargement of liver and spleen, immune suppression and birth defects.  All of these conditions are cured or prevented with carrot juice consumption.

Perhaps the title of this newsletter, Tale of Two Carrots should have been titled TALE OF TWO CAROTENES.  Carotenes in the carrots are safe, but out of the carrots carotenes are unsafe.

August 18th, 2017Carbohydrates

Tara Pierce, M.H.

Carbohydrates are one of three macronutrients (protein, fat, carbohydrates) that the body needs for survival. They are called ‘macro’ due to the large quantities in which they need to be consumed. Carbohydrates (carbs) are the body’s main energy source, powering the central nervous system and providing quick energy for working muscles. Carbs are sugars, starches and fibers found in fruits, grains, legumes, vegetables and milk products.

Carbs are divided into two main categories; simple and complex.

Simple carbohydrates are sugars that are already in their simplest form and cannot be broken down further. Also called monosaccharide’s (one sugar), these sugars include glucose, fructose, and galactose which are found in fruit and milk products. They are the building blocks of disaccharides (two sugars) such as sucrose and lactose, which are found in foods like table sugar, dairy products, beer and vegetables. Highly processed grains and refined sweeteners fall into this category of carbohydrates because of how quickly they are absorbed by the body and how they affect blood sugar levels. They also have little to no nutritional value. Examples of these foods are candies, soda, syrups, pastries, prepackaged convenience foods, pasta, white rice, white bread, white flour products, white sugar and low fat milk products.

Complex carbohydrates are polysaccharides (3+ sugars) such as cellulose and starch. These carbs are foods that are high in fiber. High fiber foods or complex carbohydrates are digested slower. This helps slow the absorption of sugars, helping to keep blood sugar levels in check. This means that instead of having spikes of high energy from high amounts of sugar hitting the blood stream all at once as with simple carbs, you will have a slower, steady stream of sugars providing lasting energy without the subsequent sugar crash. These foods include beans, peas, lentils, nuts, potatoes (with skin), corn, parsnips and other root vegetables, as well as whole grain breads and cereals. Fiber is also beneficial for cleansing the bowel, aiding digestion and keeping cholesterol levels healthy.

All of the sugars found in both simple and complex carbohydrates are converted by the liver into glucose for immediate use. If the body has too many of these carbohydrates to use immediately, it will store about 2000 calories worth in the liver and skeletal muscles in the form of glycogen. Any excess sugar that is consumed is stored as fat.

Our modern diet is packed full of simple carbs and lacking in complex. This is leading to the rise in obesity, diabetes, heart disease, kidney problems, cancer and is strongly linked to the rise in auto immune diseases. We simply consume too much processed grain and low-fat dairy.

If you are looking to lose weight, clear brain fog, or are struggling with depression or anxiety, take a look at the quality of carbohydrates in your diet. Replacing junk carbs with healthy, high fiber ones will ensure you get the fuel your body needs for healthy brain function and improved digestion. You will find that complex carbohydrates will have a positive influence on your mood, memory and speed of recall.

Remember that carbs are a macronutrient, if you are not eating adequate amounts and your stores are low, the body will in turn begin to burn protein for energy which will take away from normal body function and repair. It is also hard on the kidneys, leading to the passage of painful stones and protein by-products in the urine.

Fill your diet with legumes, vegetables and dark berries to give your body the high quality carbs it craves. If you have digestive issues avoid all grains and processed milk products. (cream products; butter, cream, full fat plain Greek yogurt, are good (for most). Organic and raw are even better.)

August 18th, 2017Calm With Catnip

Kelly Pomeroy, M.H.

I was sitting out on the porch recently enjoying an evening visit with a friend when I noticed her beautiful catnip plant. I asked if I could have some leaves and after our visit I went home and enjoyed some of the loveliest tea I have had in a long time.

Catnip is an herbaceous perennial with soft greyish green heart shaped leaves and square stems. It is a member of the mint family and has a flavor that is both sweet and mild. Catnip’s common name derives from its Latin name, Nepeta cataria.  It is curious that its name contains the word cat because it has an affinity for attracting felines of all types. It is also referred to as catmint or catnep. The smell is said to have a euphoric or exciting effect on cats. They love to rub in it, lay by it or play with it. While this plant may not have the same effect on us as these felines, one of catnip’s characteristics is that of a nervine, which means it is toning and healing to the nerves. Members of the mint family contain monoterpenes that are chemical constituents commonly referred to as essential oils. These monoterpenes are “often antibacterial, they stimulate digestion, are carminative (expel gas), and are very aromatic. Plants containing these oils are “warming” to the surface (skin and mucosa) and “cooling” to internal organs, relieving excess blood stagnation.” They are also known to have sedative, expectorant, diaphoretic (cause perspiration), anthelmintic (expel worms) and antispasmodic activity. (Level 1900, HerbalChemistry)  In Dr. Christopher’s book, Herb Syllabus, he states, “Catnip works to build the adrenal glands in depressed persons and relaxes the exhausted condition. It also helps in morning sickness and is an excellent remedy for preventing miscarriages.” Catnip contains good amounts of the following minerals: potassium, magnesium, sulfur, manganese, phosphorus, chromium and selenium; and good amounts of these vitamins: Vitamin B1, B2, B5, B6, Folic Acid, B12, Choline, Inositol, Paba, Vitamin C and Vitamin H. (Herbs to the Rescue) With all the characteristics of this plant, it is evident to see how calming and beneficial catnip truly is.

Catnip is often used in children’s remedies because it is known for being a gentle healer. Dr. Christopher uses catnip in his children’s formula Kid-E-Col which contains catnip and fennel, to aid in digestion. It is also used in Dr. Christopher’s Stomach Comfort formula and Liver Gallbladder formula. Additionally, Dr. Christopher recommends using catnip tea in his Cold Sheet Treatment as a tea used for a cold enema. This helps the body absorb the liquid and retain it as long as needed and then be able to relax and eliminate when ready. Catnip is a preferred tea for these purposes because it is a gentle nervine and nutrient rich.

Another wonderful characteristic about catnip is that it has been studied and found to act as a potent mosquito repellant that is just as effective as Deet, but 10 times less toxic due to the monoterpene nepetalactone contained therein. (Chemical Composition and Antimicrobial… Nepeta cataria…) Making a solution of catnip to use as a repellant, I would refer you to a book called The HerbalMedicine-Maker’s Handbook by James Green. He uses a process to make a hydrosol, a solution that extracts the oils and some of the water of the plant in a safer and more concentrated amount. This can be used to spray onto the skin topically. Note that the oils are most concentrated in the flowering tops of catnip when choosing to make a hydrosol. In Mrs. Grieves book, A Modern Herbal, it was stated that rats also dislike the catnip plant and that it can be planted near crops to drive rats away. I might add, and plant it by your house!

Before black tea was imported to England from China, Catnip used to be their tea of choice, which they said was quite as pleasant and a good deal more wholesome.”(A Modern Herbal)
France has been known for using the leaves and young shoots for seasoning as well. Dr. Christopher has listed in his Herb Syllabus book two recipes using catnip included below.

Catnip is grown easily in any garden soil. It is a low maintenance plant that doesn’t need a lot of water. I’d try adding this beauty to your garden or at least to your cupboard in the dried form. Wishing you health, happiness, and calm with catnip!

August 18th, 2017Body Clock

Mishelle Knuteson, M.H.

I really don’t like the time of year when the time change comes along, especially when we “spring forward” in time. I really wish they would leave it alone. It seems like it takes me a week or more to feel normal again. Why would just an hour shift in time affect me so much? Just an hour can throw our body rhythms off and it takes time to reset them. Body rhythm….it is a real thing and is called circadian rhythm.

Circadian rhythms are physical, mental and emotional behavior changes that follow a 24 hour cycle. These rhythms have a direct link to light and are found in most living things. Circadian rhythms determine sleep and eating patterns of all animals and human beings. There are clear patterns of brain wave activity, hormone production, cell regeneration and other biological activities linked to the daily cycle. There is a natural ebb and flow in our energy throughout the day that is oftentimes controlled by an area in the brain that responds to light and dark.

In Chinese medicine it is referred to as the body-energy clock, where Qi (energy) moves in two hour intervals through the body organ system. During sleep, the Qi is drawn inward to restore the body and during the day the Qi moves outward to assist in the bodily functions such as digestion and elimination. Lungs are at their peak in the early morning, which is why it is best to schedule your exercise at that time of day rather than later. Also active in the morning hours is our large intestine. To stay with the body’s natural rhythm of this, I like to start my day by drinking a detox tea in the morning. One of my favorite detox drinks (especially in the spring/summer) is CCF tea (Coriander, Cumin, and Fennel). I boost it with some green tea along with adding 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice or 1 tsp of Sole (saltwater - pronounced solay). The liver stores and cleanses blood as well as hormones and our emotions. The liver is at its peak between 1 am - 3 am which is the time when we are most often in our deepest sleep and the body and mind is the calmest.

A lot more goes on within our bodies during the 24 hour time cycle than we are most likely aware of and this is why even an one hour shift of time can throw us off for a bit. It is important for our health to choose lifestyle habits that help us synchronize our body systems to the ebb and flow of energy.  A couple of tips to keep or reset our body clock during a time change, travel and to just be in the flow of the natural rhythm of the body are:

  1. Follow the sun ~ In the morning open the shades and let the light in. This will help you get moving in the morning. Get as much light during the day as possible. At night as you are bringing your energy down ready for sleep, dim the lights. Try to keep out light in the room you sleep in, as much as possible.
  2. Adjust your activity levels ~ During the morning and day allow those to be your most active times. Wind down and take it easy the closer it gets to sleep time. That means electronics as well. Read, write or do other calming activities just before lights out.
  3. Adjust meal schedule ~Eat your largest meals during the morning and afternoon. This is when your digestive organs are naturally at their peak. Eating a big meal before bed often leaves you with a heavy feeling and it makes the body work harder during its resting time.
  4. Adjust your mind ~ Don’t sleep in. There really is no catching up on sleep. The body functions better when we stick with a habitual schedule as much as possible. If you have to get up in the dark, then use bright lighting as you prepare your day. If you have to sleep while it is still light, block out as much light as possible.

Just a few simple changes can make a big difference in adjusting and honoring your body’s natural rhythms.

August 18th, 2017California Screaming

David Christopher, M.H.

During the presidential nomination debates Gov. Rick Perry said that he couldn’t be bought by Big Pharma for $250,000.  For a mere $90,000 Big Pharma instead bought Dr. Richard Pan, a legislator from California.  Pan gave Big Pharma more bang for their buck. He essentially assured them customers for life, cradle to grave, by force of the government of California through S.B. 277.  This bill puts California in line with the two “forward thinking” states of West Virginia and Mississippi in eliminating the personal exemption for vaccinations. Pan also blazed the way for Dr. Peter Hotez.  Hotez, under the guise of being compassionate, is calling on the U.S. government and world governments in the G20 to wage war on American parents defending exemptions in vaccine laws in his article in Scientific American (March 3, 2017).  He also advocates that those concerned parents who disagree with him should be “snuffed out” which means, “to make extinct, put an end to, kill, execute” according to Mirriam Webster.

No one should be surprised with these American Benedict Arnolds who are responsible along with their medical cohorts for the deaths of thousands of babies who are sacrificed for the “good of the whole.” They actually believe that vaccines are protecting millions of American children from dreaded childhood diseases.  However, they cannot prove any lives are saved let alone millions of lives. Neither can the incredulous Dr. Paul Offit who declares that vaccine injuries are a myth and that you can safely inject 10,000 vaccines into a child at once. The truth is that neither Offit nor anyone can prove three vaccines administered together are safe. In fact studies done at the CDC that are in the congressional record show that they are not safe.  If Offit or anyone else could prove that these mercury laden vaccines are safe, then why haven’t they collected the $100,000 reward offered by Robert Kennedy Jr. and Robert De Niro?  This reward is available to anyone who can produce one medical study that proves the safety of mercury laced vaccines. Obviously Dr. Offit hasn’t done the research necessary to back up his claim that vaccine injuries are a myth. We have however, and the 4 billion dollars paid out to vaccine victim’s families is a matter of public record.  It is also a matter of record how many families of vaccine damaged children are denied compensation. The published injury and death facts don’t even scratch the surface of mayhem perpetrated on the American public by lying physicians like Dr. Offit who convince parents that the vaccines administered had nothing to do with the death and injury of their children.

None of this will change until the 1986 vaccine legislation that shields Big Pharma from litigation is reversed and manufacturers, pharmacists and doctors are held accountable for their actions. 
For more depth on this subject that can’t be covered in a newsletter article please follow the link to this presentation by the Director of National Vaccine Information Center.

August 18th, 2017Herbal Testimonial

Joseph Dixon Jr.

The whole line of herbsfashioned by Dr. Christopher have been simply invaluable to me. The Lower Bowel formula never ceases to make sure that everything is moving. The various nutritive herbs make sure I’m well-adjusted to the cleansing process. The Lung and Bronchial formula is literally healing my lungs after all the damage that had been done by the asthma medicine. I have not had a legitimate asthma attack in 4 years. I was diagnosed with asthma at 4 years old and started taking medication. I am 17 years old and have now been off of the medication for about 4 years and my lungs almost never get inflamed. I used to have a problem with incontinence. But the Kid-e-Dry formula made quick work of that. The Complete Tissue and Bone ointment works on a daily basis to rebuild my skin and joints. The Kidney and Liver and Gallbladder formulas helped me with the allergies I was experiencing and literally expanded my pallet of foods. The Soothing Digestion formula works wonders in helping with digesting the more stubborn foods. And the Intestinal Sweep formula kicked out a lot of old waste material and freed my system to move more efficiently. However, of all the herbs, the most powerful and potent herb in my situation was mullein.
 
Every time I take mullein, I know mucous is about to leave. Mucous had been one of my worst enemies as someone who had dealt with asthma. Nevertheless, after the initial doses of just the mullein herb, my body began a mucous removal program that fought the nonstop congestion that once made things very difficult. When I took the Glandular System formula, which includes mullein and lobelia together, it worked to clean out all of the glands that were obviously under a great deal of pressure. But when I drank that formula as a tea, things changed. The cleansings were intense, but I felt totally different. My system was clearing much faster than it ever had before and I was able to process complex foods without the increased mucous buildup. The asthma was practically non-existent and foods that once made me tense had no effect. The Glandular System tea helped my body evacuate everything like never before.
 
The Dr. Christopher 3 Day Cleanse proved to be a super powerful tool in fighting mucous and system wide blockage. It jump started the herbs and helped me get on my way to a healthier me. I sometimes did not even complete the cleanse as directed, but even remnants of the program demonstrated to be very instrumental in preparing for anything that might require a body that is clear and working efficiently. I use the Blood Stream formula to calm my body down when stuff gets to my blood. It calms itches, headaches, fatigue and other effects of deep cleansing.
 
In conclusion, my experience with Dr. Christopher products have been nothing but legendary. I’m being healed from the inside out and I can feel the improvements increasing each and every day. I used to have an extremely hard time exercising, getting my lungs clear and just exerting myself in general. But I no longer have to worry now that I know there is a totally natural solution. The drugs that once attacked my system have been replaced by the heroes in green contained within the bottles of green, purple and blue. I cannot express the full extent of my gratitude. These herbs work; they fix the problems at the source. Thank you Dr. Christopher and the School of Natural Healing.
