Others want to carry documents around with them on their mobile phones and read while they are on the move. We have created .pdf files of all out documents to accommodate all these groups of people. We recommend that you download .pdfs onto your mobile phone when it is connected to a WiFi connection for reading off-line.

Exercise has to become a religion. A daily aerobic program must be
started on a carefully managed gradient, using the pulse rate as an
regulator, at first raising their maximum heart rate to a point just
below 150 percent of its resting pulse and keeping it there for
thirty minutes. One can walk, jog, ride a bicycle or use an exercise
machine. Actually, everyone should do this, even those with no heart
problems. My husband, who hates the boredom of exercise, enjoys a
ski machine in front of the TV while the stock market program is on.
He finds the TV interesting enough that he pays no attention to his
workout. Daily aerobic exercise will strengthen the heart, gradually
slowing the heart's resting pulse rate, indicating that the heart
has become much stronger, pumping more blood with each pulse. As the
resting pulse drops the exercising heartbeat can be increased to
double the resting rate.

Highly aggressive, competitive, stress-oriented people have to give
up being adrenaline junkies and learn to relax and assume a
laid-back approach to living. Or die soon. An adrenaline junkie is
someone that enjoys the feeling they get when operating under
stress. Stress and the adrenaline it releases produce a kind of a
drug-high. Many stressaholics cannot give up their adrenaline
addiction while maintaining their previous employment and
life-style, even though their life is at stake. In this sense they
are like alcoholics, who should not take employment tending bar. To
survive for long these people may have to retire or change
professions. Stockbrokers may have to become Organic farmers;
journalists may have to operate a news stand or bookstore, or work
part-time covering the society page and dog shows. Women frequently
turn their family life into a stress-filled drama too.

With heart problems a life extension megavitamin program is
essential, even for twenty somethings if they have heart disease.
The sixty milligrams of Co-Enzyme Q-10 I recommend for the average
middle aged person will not be enough for heart cases; they should
take at least 120 milligrams daily and consider up to 250 mg. This
much Q-10 greatly boosts the energy output of the heart on a
cellular level. Vitamin E should also be increased, to between 600
and 2,000 iu daily. I also rebuild diseased hearts with
protomorphogens; usually they must stay on protomorphogens for the
rest of their lives. Niacin taken several times a day in doses,
sufficient to dilate the capillaries and cause a skin flush (50 to
200 milligrams), increases the blood flow to nourish the heart. The
amino acid L. Carnitine is also useful by increasing the energy
output of the heart much like Co-Enzyme Q-10.

When I put people on this program, the supplements and other
measures gradually take effect, and over months the patient begins
to feel enormously better. Inevitably they come to dislike the
side-effects of the various medications their medical doctor has put
them on and they begin to wean themselves off of heart-stimulating
poisons like digitalis. Another benefit of my program is that
inevitably, blood pressure also drops to a normal range so if they
have been on blood pressure medication they quit that too. Their
diuretics also become unnecessary. The money they save more than
pays for their supplements and the sense of well-being they feel is
beyond value.

Other Kinds Of Cancer

There seem to be many other kinds of cancer, at least if you believe
the medical doctors. They divide up cancers and their treatments by
their location in the body and by the type of cancer cells present.
I do not see it that way. To me, a cancer is a cancer is a cancer,
and there is only one kind: it is an immune system collapse,
consequence of the deadly triangle of weak spleen, thymus and liver,
plus a toxic large intestine and weak pancreas. That organ profile
is found in skin cancer, prostate cancer, leukemia, brain cancer,
cancer of what have you. How fast or how slowly the cells multiply
or spread, where they are located, what the cancer cells look like
in a microscope, these are irrelevant factors compared to the body's
ability to conquer the disease. Or die from it.

If the body's immune system can stop the growth of the cancers and
begin to turn them back before the cancer cells impinge
catastrophically on some vital function, the person can usually
survive. Even if the body cannot completely eliminate all the cancer
cells, but regains enough immune function to keep the existing
cancers in permanent check, a person can survive many years with an
existing, stable cancer without undue pain or discomfort. Still
having a non-growing tumor after a long fast indicates that a person
is a lot better than they were before fasting.

I believe that virtually everyone has cancer cells in their body,
just like viruses and bacteria. But most people do not develop
cancer as a disease because their immune function is strong so these
misbehaving cells are destroyed as fast as they appear. Mutated,
freely-multiplying cells are caused by peroxidized fats, by free
radicals in the body, by radiation (there has always been background
radiation on Earth), by chance mutation. There are naturally
occurring highly carcinogenic substances in ordinary foods that are
unavoidable. In fact some of these naturally occurring substances
are far more dangerous than the toxic residues of pesticides in our
foods. The body is supposed to deal with all these things; they are
all called insults. It is rarely the insult, but the failure of the
body to eliminate cancerous cells promptly that causes the disease
called cancer. So the treatment I recommend for cancer in general is
the same as the one described for breast cancer cases. Restore the
immune function.

However, as much as I lack respect for conventional medical cancer
therapies, I do think surgery can have a useful place in cancer
treatment along with hygienic methods. Some people just cannot
confront the lump(s). Or they are so terrified of having a cancer in
their body that their emotions suppresses their own immune function.
Even though surgery prompts a cancer to spread more rapidly, without
their lumps some cancer patients feel more positive. If surgery is
done in conjunction with rebuilding the immune system, the body will
prevent new cancers from forming.

Removal of a large mass of cancer cells can also lighten the immune
system's task. Not having to kill off and reabsorb all those cells
one-by-one from a huge cancer mass, the body can better conquer
smaller groups of cancer cells. And the die-off of large cancers
produces a lot of toxins, burdening the organs of elimination. This
is an argument for the potential benefit of a lumpectomy. However, I
do not support mastectomies, or the type of surgery that cause
massive damage to the body in a foolish attempt to remove every last
cancer cell, as though the cells themselves were the disease.

Sometimes cancer tumors are well-encapsulated, walled off and can be
easily removed without prompting metastasis. This type of tumor may
not be completely reabsorbed by the body in any case; though the
immune system may have killed it, an empty shell remains, like a
peanut shell. Sometimes the judgment calls about surgery can get
dicey. When surgery involves removing an organ. I oppose the loss of
useful body parts.

I have also known and helped people who believed they couldn't
recover without radiation and chemotherapy. What people believe is,
is. The emotions generated when a personal reality is suppressed,
ignored or invalidated will overwhelm an immune system. I always
tell those people who sincerely believe in it to go ahead with
standard medical treatment (while I'm privately praying the doctors
won't cause too much damage). However, when I am supporting a body
with supplements and dietary reform, have put that body on a
raw-food cleansing diet or even a raw food diet with nuts and grains
that hardly detoxifies, and then the person has had chemotherapy and
radiation, the medical doctors in attendance are inevitably amazed
that the side effects are much milder than anticipated, or
non-existent. And fewer courses of chemotherapy are needed than the
doctors expected.

For example, I worked with a little boy with leukemia. His mother
brought him to me while trying to resolve a conflict with her
ex-husband about the boy's treatment. The father demanded the
standard medical route; the mother was for natural therapy.
Eventually the father won in court, but I had the boy on my program
for three months before the doctors got their hands on him. Even
during chemotherapy and radiation the mother kept the boy on my
program. Throughout the doctors' treatment he had so few bad side
effects that he was able to continue in school and play with the
other children; he did not lose his hair (which would have made him
feel like a freak). He recovered. I don't mind that the medical
doctors took credit, but to my thinking, he recovered despite their

Onion Cases

All too many of my cases are what I privately refer to as onion
cases. By this I mean the opposite of a simple case. There are
multiple complaints. I call them onion cases because these people
get better in layers, like pealing an onion. As each skin comes off,
the next becomes visible. Sometimes when the patient overcomes an
existing complaint, another appears that was not there in the
beginning, probably this new one is a complaint that they had at an
earlier point in their life, one that had gone away. Onion cases
take a long time to completely heal, sometimes years. There
frequently are psychological aspects to the case that surface with
different physical problems. If I were not an effective psychologist
I could not succeed with most of them. The average medical doctor
probably considers onion cases to be hypochondriacs, but they
usually are not.

Almost always the first symptoms that demand attention are the most
life-threatening, like immune system failures, liver failures,
pancreatic failures, nervous system failures and heart failures.
With these eliminated, new complaints appear. Often these are
endocrine system imbalances or weak endocrine glands, anemias, mild
heart conditions. Then it gets down to eye or ear infections,
muscular or skeletal weaknesses, mild skin problems, sinusitis,
teeth problems; things that aren't serious but that do degrade the
quality of life. Each one of these layers also carries with it a
psychological component; each of these layers can take three to six
months to resolve.

I had a pretty good idea from the first visit that Daniel, not yet
30, was going to take some time to get well. He already had a
degenerative condition not usually seen until middle age--crippling
gout and arthritis. He had badly distorted joints, walked with
considerable pain, lacked a full range of movement, had enormous
fatigue and consequently, a well-justified depression. Daniel was
about to give up working as no longer possible, but he liked his
job. And he certainly needed it.

Daniel's analysis showed massive allergies to foods, a systemic
yeast and multiple virus infections and multiple organ weaknesses: a
life-threateningly weak immune system, weak pancreas, weak adrenals,
weak large intestine. Because he could hardly accept anything he
wasn't allergic to and because he could not afford to quit working
even for a few weeks (though he was about to be forced into complete
disability) I put him on a Bieler fast. This is a monodiet of fairly
substantial quantities of either well-cooked green beans or
well-cooked zucchini, the choice between these two foods depending
on the acid-base balance of the blood. (Henry Bieler, 1965) In
Daniel's case my choice was zucchini, one pint of plain zucchini
puree with a little kelp and garlic added (no salt, no butter, no
nothing else) every few hours. I also put him on heavy vitamin
support and protomorphogens for his desperate immune system. While
on the Bieler fast he did daily enemas at home. Had colonics been
available to him, Daniel couldn't have afforded them.

Within three weeks he was far more comfortable, had less pain, more
energy even though he was still eating nothing but zucchini, had
less swelling in his joints. During the first month he lost about
ten pounds and had been skinny to start with. I then added other
cooked nonstarchy vegetables to his diet and we continued the same
protomorphogen and supplement program for another month.

Once each month Daniel came to see me. Each time he had slightly
improved organ strength and was able to tolerate a few more foods.
By the third month he stopped losing weight because we added small
quantities of cooked rice and millet to his diet. However, to
continue his detox, I had him water fast one day a week, staying in
bed and resting all day. At the start and end of the fasting day he
also took an enema. He continued a weekly one-day fast for many
months. By the fourth month, his immune system testing stronger, a
new problem appeared. Daniel had intestinal parasites. So I also put
him on a six month program to eliminate those.

Daniel required monthly dietary adjustments because he quickly
became allergic if he ate very much of anything very often--broccoli
or rice for example. During this time he became aware of many
negative emotions associated with childhood, of young adult
frustrations and disappointments. He was really very angry about
many things in his life, even though he had for many years
maintained an invariably pleasant social veneer. But now he began
expressing some of these feelings to me and to his associates.

Daniel had an abusive girlfriend, but as he improved this
relationship became insufferable. So he broke off with this woman
and found a new relationship that was much more positive, one based
on mutual respect and admiration. There are frequently strong
connections between repressed anger and depository diseases like
arthritis and gout. Daniel could not permit himself to constantly be
made angry and still get well.

His next layer of symptoms did not appear until nearly eighteen
months after he had first come to see me. By this time he had good
energy, had returned to hiking and skiing, camping and canoeing. He
had worked as a printer but was now bootstrapping his own print shop
on a shoestring, and became entirely self-employed. He had a good
romantic relationship. The parasites were gone; his gout and
arthritis was virtually gone; many of his food allergies were gone.
Now his body was demanding that its acid/base balance be adjusted
and he began to pay attention to the minor back problems he had all
along. Daniel had also developed a new problem--inflammation of the
eye. It was so severe that he went to an opthamologist seeking
immediate relief because he could hardly see. I put him on massive
doses of vitamin C and protomorphogens for the eye and we attacked
the other problems.

Now I still see Daniel every three months for minor dietary and
supplement adjustments. His emotional space is very positive. His
business is doing well. His love life is doing well. He has
developed no new problems and all the old ones are under control.
His organ systems, though better, will never tolerate many insults,
physical or mental, but if he lives within his limits, he has every
chance of a long and happy life.

Daniel has become a friend of mine by now and I like to see him but
I expect I won't see Daniel very much at all any more. He has
learned what he needs to know to take care of himself. This is a
typical onion case that resolved successfully. However this case
might not have worked out so well had Daniel not possessed a high
degree of personal integrity and bravery, had he not faced and
resolved his emotional conflicts. Fortunately, Daniel had always
conducted an ethical life, without dishonesty or a secret collection
of disreputable acts. Bodies are easy to fix; they are carbon oxygen
engines that work on chemistry and respond unfailingly to physical
measures. But the entity that runs the body is not so simple. The
thoughts and emotions of the spirit impinge on a body as powerfully
or more powerfully than all the vitamins, dietary reform or
protomorphogens I can provide. The mind, and the spirit behind that
mind, can make a body sick or can prevent it from getting well or
staying well despite everything I do.

Unethical Illness

I see a lot of spiritually-induced physical illness in my practice.
Maybe more than my share. Maybe its karmic; it tends to find me
because I understand it. And it comes up my driveway because people
who have it often become doctor shoppers, and seek out a naturopath
as a last resort after exhausting everything that modern medical
science has to offer. I have had large numbers of undiagnosable
people that suffer greatly but who medical doctors can find nothing
wrong with and label psychosomatic. I have also repaired people
given specific medical diagnoses that standard physical remedies
cannot make better.

In most of these cases, the physical illness is secondary to, is an
overlay of a more fundamental spiritual cause. On this type of case
there are inevitably severe problems connected with close friends,
relatives and business associates. The sick person inevitably blames
the friends, relatives and business associates and takes no
responsibility. The problems seem unresolvable. When I probe deeply
enough into these problems, I begin to discover the real infection
below. The sick person, so fond of complaining about all the
terrible things done to them by the people they have or have had
problems with, or sometimes, so proud of not complaining about all
the terrible things done to them. Actually, almost inevitably this
person has committed a huge mass of secret crimes, viciousness and
betrayals, rarely indictable felonious acts, but crimes none the
less, disreputable deeds that must be kept secret.

These deeds are always completely justified; the sick person always
claims to have been right for having done them and it is next to
impossible for me as a therapist to get them to take responsibility
for their sins. But at the deep, center of almost all people is an
honest, decent soul that knows what it has really done and feels
guilty and judges itself. That is why it says in the Bible, 'judge
not, lest you be judged'. It is not the judgment of the Deity we
have so much to fear; we are own worst judge, jury, and executioner,
and eventually extract from ourselves full payment with compound
interest for all harmful acts.

People frequently punish themselves with severe, incapacitating
illness or even death. A spiritual illness will not respond very
well to physical treatment until the spiritual malaise's is
resolved. This case has to find enough courage to become honest with
themselves, to admit their deeds in all their disgusting detail and
then to make amends, or if amends are not possible, to at least
cease and desist. They have to take personal responsibly for what
they really are being and what they have really done and most
importantly, accept that they are responsible for creating their own
illness. It is not a virus, a cancer cell or something that just
fell out of the universe and struck them, innocent victims that they
are. They have made their illness and only they can uncreate it.

Unfortunately, few people who have spent a lifetime indulging
themselves in this degree of irresponsibility have the integrity to
change. This is a tough case. Especially so because they think they
are physically ill, they did not come to me to be defined as a
"mental" case and tend to reject such approaches.

There is no shortage of additional degenerative conditions that I
could describe. There are eating disorders, shingles, skin problems,
kidney disease, Alzheimer's, senility, mental illness, addictions,
chronic fatigue syndrome, aids. There's macular degeneration, carpal
tunnel syndrome, chronic ear infections (especially in children),
tonsillitis, bronchitis, pancreatitis, cystitis, urethritis,
prostatitis, colitis, sinusitis, osteomyelitis and a dozen other
itises, including appendicitis. There's algias (itises of the
nerves): neuralgia, fibromyalgia. There's ism's (really itises of
the muscles). There are 'onias like pneumonia; omas like carcinoma,
melanoma and lymphoma.

I could (but won't) write a page or two on every one of these
conditions and turn this book into an encyclopedia. After twenty
five years of practice, there is little I have not seen. Or helped a
body repair. Generally, everyone of those following pages I'm not
going to bother to write would repeat the same message. That the
medical profession has little understanding of the real causes or
cures of disease; that the world is full of unnecessary suffering;
that there are simple, painless, effective, harmless approaches to
eliminating most of the ailments of mankind except the ultimate
ailment, old age, the thing that takes us all eventually; that
essentially all the diseases resolve from the same approach.

But I have already explained the theoretical basis of natural
hygiene, the key role of toxemia, enervation, constipation, the
essentials of good diet, fasting and colon cleansing, the importance
of regular exercise, and the rational for vitamin supplementation. I
have revealed a lot of the secrets in my bag of tricks, like my
favorite herbs, poultices and wheat grass.

What concerns me most about medicine today is that there seems to be
ever fewer hygienists practicing. The young holistic practitioner is
overwhelmed with confusing data and approaches and is increasingly
less able to discern what is really important and what is
distraction, and is increasingly intimidated by the AMA, made
fearful of accepting people with serious conditions. Too many young
practitioners become ideologues, clinging to the rightness of a
single rigid discipline, missing the truths that exist in other
approaches and worse, missing the limitations that exist in their
own personal healing methods.

The current concern about the cost of medical care and resorting to
government-run insurance programs and regulations will do little or
nothing to reverse the trend to more and more sickness that costs
more and more to treat. The root causes of our current crisis are
two fold. One, our food, just as it comes off the farm, is getting
ever worse. This is not even recognized as a problem. After we
process it for an industrial food distribution system, much
nutrition is lost too. This is barely recognized as a problem. Until
we are better nourished, we will be ever sicker and each generation
will become a degeneration. Secondly, our society is suffering from
all the evils of monopoly medicine. This is barely recognized. The
AMA has a stranglehold on the sick. There is no effective
competition for its methods. Alternatives are suppressed. In my
version of a better world, if anyone that wanted to could hang out a
shingle and offer to diagnose, treat and cure disease, a few quacks
would really hurt a few people. But many genuine therapies would
appear and the public would be exposed to workable alternatives. If
anyone that wanted to market it could put a label on a bottle of
pills, power or tincture that said its contents would heal or cure
disease, yes, a few people would be poisoned. And a few would die
needlessly by failing to get the right treatment. But on the
positive side, all this liberty would result in countless new
therapies being rediscovered and many new uses for existing
substances would appear.

Fundamentally, this is the issue of liberty. I believe it is better
to allow choice and options, to permit the dangers that go with
liberty to exist. And to allow unfortunate outcomes to occur without
intervention into individual lack of intelligence and
irresponsibilities. The opposite is our current path--an attempt to
regulate and control away all dangers. But this overcontrol results
in institutionalized violence and cruelty, inefficiency that is not
checked or exposed by the bright light of a better way. As Churchill
said, 'democracy is the worst form of government there is--except for
all the others.' What he meant is that we must accept that this is
an imperfect world. The best this planet can be is when it is at its
freest, when restrictions are minimized and when people are allowed
to make their own choices, be responsible for their own outcomes and
experience the consequences of their own stupidities.


Pulse Testing For Allergies

Coca's Pulse Tests are extraordinarily useful and simple tools for
at-home allergy detection. My clients have succeeded at using this
approach without supervision. Coca's test works on this simple
principle: pulse elevations are caused by any allergic reaction. If
you know what your normal range of pulse rates are, you can isolate
an offending food or substance and eliminate it. Success with Coca's
Pulse Test requires only motivation and a little perseverance,
because in order to test for food allergies, the diet must be
restricted for a few days and your pulse must be accurately taken at
specific intervals during the testing period.

The test is based on measurement of the resting pulse rate,
something most people have no difficulty learning how to do. The
resting rate is how fast the heart beats after a person has been
sitting still, comfortably relaxing for three to five minutes. When
a person is active the heart beats faster than the resting rate. One
measure of aerobic fitness is how quickly the heart is able to
return to its resting rate. Well-trained athletes' hearts can adjust
from working very hard to a resting rate in only a minute or so;
those who are deconditioned can take three to five minutes for their
heart to slow from even mild exertion to its stable, resting pace.
Those who cannot readily find their own pulse on their wrist or
throat can inexpensively purchase a digital watch that gives a pulse
reading; this kind of watch is used by athletes to make sure their
training pulse is in an acceptable range.

Preparatory to doing Coca's Pulse Test it is necessary to as much as
possible eliminate allergic food reactions. This requires the
application of discipline for a few days before testing begins.
Allergic reactions can go on for several days after a food has been
eaten and if you are having a reaction to something eaten many hours
or several days previously, it may obscure a reaction to a food just

1. Stop smoking entirely for at least five days before you do a
cigarette test; allergies to cigarettes can take five days to clear.
Besides, you shouldn't smoke, anyway!

2. For the first three days, count your resting pulse immediately
after awakening in the morning (for one entire minute), and record
the reading.

3. During the first three days, take your resting pulse half an hour
and again one hour after each meal. It if has elevated more than 12
beats above the resting rate you found upon arising that morning,
you may assume that some food at the meal you just ate was an
allergen. Temporarily, eliminate from your diet all the foods eaten
at the previous meal until you can check them one-by-one a few days
later. At the end of these first three days you may not have many
foods left that you can eat. That is okay and to be expected; it is
time to begin adding foods back to the diet.

4. Most people who are allergic to foods are allergic to one or more
of the following: corn, wheat, milk and cheese, yogurt, meat,
alcohol, tobacco. It would be very wise to eliminate these foods too
for the first three days, until they are tested.

After three days on this regimen, you can assume that many of your
usual allergic food reactions have ceased or at least diminished
significantly and that you probably can get reasonably accurate
testing results on individual foods. A good indicator of having
problems with food allergies in general can also show up during
these initial days. If you have eliminated a large number of foods
and your resting pulse upon awakening has slowed down by several
beats, you can assume you are allergic to foods you were eating.

I would not be at all surprised that by the end of the third day you
were only eating a very few fruits and vegetables and had eliminated
everything else. A more effective variant of the testing procedure
calls for a three or four day water fast to clear all allergies with
absolute certainty, and then to introduce foods one at a time as
described below.

On the fourth and subsequent few days, take your resting pulse upon
arising and then eat a modest quantity of a single food: for
example, eat a slice of bread, or a medium sized glass of milk, or
an orange, or two tablespoons sugar in dissolved in water, or a few
dried prunes, or a peach, or an egg, or a medium-sized potato, or a
cup of black coffee without sweetener, or a few ounces of meat, or a
stick of celery, or half a cup of raw cabbage, or an onion, or a
date, or a few hazelnuts, etc. Count the pulse one half hour later
and again one hour after eating the test item.

If any food raises the resting pulse over 12 beats per minute above
your morning resting pulse, that food should be eliminated; you are
certainly allergic to it or can't digest that much of it. If your
pulse has not returned to its morning resting rate one hour later,
you are still having an allergic reaction to the food you ate
previously and cannot get a decent result on another food until
either your pulse slows again or until the next morning. You may,
however, continue to eat other foods that you know do not provoke
allergic reactions. Because reactions to a food may not clear for
many hours, it is wise to eat only small quantities of individual
foods if you wish to test many of them in a single day. If a food
causes no acceleration of pulse (at least 6 beats above your
estimated normal maximal) that food can be tentatively labeled

After a few days of testing one food an hour, you will become weary
of the routine and wish to eat more normally. It may also occur that
you cannot test more than one or two foods a day from the very first
day because allergic reactions do not clear quickly enough. No
problem, the testing period can go on at a lower level of intensity
for many weeks, trying one new food each morning upon arising. As
you eliminate allergens from your diet one by one, your resting
pulse should drop somewhat and it should be easier to discern
allergic reactions. After you have worked through all the items in
your normal dietary, it would be wise to retest the foods a second
time, breaking your fast with one different test item each morning.
This second testing round may reveal a few more allergic reactions
that were obscured by other allergic reactions the first time
