Tame Your HormonesTM- Heal Your Life
Benefits - Loss of vital hormones is common. Replacing these with exactly the same molecules that were lost, is the key to better health. Enjoy several benefits, including increased bone strength, less skin wrinkling and stronger hair and nails. Of course, hormone replacement will also endmenopause symptoms. Even younger women can significantly lessen PMS. We also know that over 60% of infertility is due to low progesterone levels. Progesterone cream can quickly and easily reverse this problem. And hormones are literally what give us life.They affect every aspect of our physical and mental health. They can even end depression, or "brain fog."
What We Solve - Bioidentical hormones have EXACTLY the same molecular structure as what your body produces. A large Swedish study found that natural hormones actually protect women from breast cancer and heart disease. And if you're currently taking Premarin or Prempro, you'll want to read our common sense report click. Award winning author, RN and Clinical Nurse Specialist, Corinne Peachment, and endocrine physician, Dr. Andrew Jones, MD, offer natural, bio-identical hormones. And see the best selling book on food and hormones (Amazon -Feed Your Need) along with CC7. Proof of Corinne Peachment's 27 years of hospital and clinic work here. And watch Dr. Andrew Jones videohere.
Does this Work? - Hundreds of well known people have publicly proclaimed the noticeable health benefits of bio-identical hormones. These include Dr. Christiane Northrup, Oprah Winfrey, Dr, Diana Schwarzbein, Robin McGraw, Dr. Uzzi Reiss, Dr. Mehmet Oz, Dr. John R. Lee and more. On January 15, 2009, Oprah Winfrey devoted her program to this topic. Emphasis was put on the benefits of bio-identical hormones vs synthetics, like Premarin and Prempro. We KNOW that these synthetics contribute to cancer, heart disease, strokes and dementia. It's no wonder, because Premarin is for horses, not for humans!
How does this Work? - Hormone balance provides measurable benefits to ALL aspects of anti-aging. It's not just about hot flashes and night sweats (although these will end). But if you watch our Australian TV news video, you'll understand why hormone balance affects osteoporosis, hair growth, skin wrinkling, insomnia and more. Look at it this way: when we become too old to reproduce, nature tries to get rid of us by causing a dramatic decline in hormone levels. Since nature's aim is to reproduce, once your hormones drop off, the signs of aging accelerate.
What's Unique About Corinne? As Harvard MD, Andrew Weil states, "Diabetes is the perfect model for understanding hormones." Corinne is a Diabetes Clinical Nurse Specialist and has written a book on hormones and food (Feed Your Need). She also worked at St. George Hospital, in Sydney Australia, and Wellesley Hospital, in Ontario, Canada (a University of Toronto affiliated teaching hospital). Her post graduate research on glycemic index and hormones earned Deans honors. She has worked in health education for 27 years. See visual evidence for credentials and awards, under "experience." Corinne now works with Dr. Andrew Jones of the Women's Health Institute of Texas. Dr. Jones video here.

Since the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) results came out two years ago, millions of women have been scared off their hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Millions who have stayed on HRT feel insecure about it, and millions more women of menopausal years are suffering by going without replacement hormones, mostly for fear of getting breast cancer.
The WHI looked at the health effects of 27,000 women without a uterus using Premarin alone vs. placebo, and, in women with a uterus, Premarin + Provera vs. placebo. The trial was terminated early (after five years), when the study found that the Premarin + Provera group had more heart attacks, strokes, blood clots and breast cancer than the placebo group. The branch of the study that looked at Premarin alone vs. placebo showed an increased risk for stroke, but not for breast cancer.
In hard numbers, 10,000 postmenopausal women using Premarin + Provera for five years, compared to 10,000 non-treated postmenopausal women, will have six fewer cases of colorectal cancer, five fewer hip fractures, but eight more cases of breast cancer, eight more strokes, seven more heart attacks, and eighteen more blood clots. According to the study's authors, an individual woman's increased risk for breast cancer, with this hormone regimen, was less than one tenth of one percent a year.
The best outcome of the WHI, and one that the media has so far ignored, is that well-respected gyncologists are rethinking HRT. The Women’s Health Advisory Board, composed of some of the most respected gynecologists in this country, issued this statement, September 18, 2002, to doctors regarding the WHI study: “Hormone therapy, properly managed, remains a vital sustaining component in our efforts to enhance and extend the quality of life of women. The benefits outweigh the risks for almost all women. We are confident that the WHI findings, if objectively assessed and incorporated, have given physicians and their patients reasons to reconsider alternative and equally effective methods of post-menopausal hormone therapy.”
The numbers did not get reported like this two years ago. Since the WHI’s public premiere there has been time for further review and analysis of the study. Many respectable researchers have criticized the WHI study for flawed design methods. The media has been faulted for over-blowing the results and not presenting alternative interpretations and conclusions.
They go on to echo the same conclusions that integrative practitioners have advised for years: “CEE [Premarin] is not the estrogen produced by women during their menstrual life and may not be the most appropriate hormone to replenish a woman's body following menstrual life.”
Premarin, also known as conjugated equilin estrogen (CEE), is derived from pregnant mare’s urine. The estrogens in Premarin are perfect for a menopausal mare, but foreign to a human female. The same goes for Provera, aka, medroxy-progesterone acetate (MPA). This is a progestin, a progesterone-like substance that is also not native to the human female. It is these synthetic progesterones that are the biggest culprit in increasing breast cancer risk.
WHI results have turned the tide away from using non-bioidentical hormones such as Premarin and Provera, and towards the use of bioidentical hormones. Integrative medical practitioners who have been using only bio-identical HRT for years will no longer be a fringe minority. The WHI writing group concluded, “It remains possible that transdermal (cream absorbed through the skin) estradiol and progesterone, which most closely mimic the normal physiology and metabolism of endogenous sex hormones, may provide a different risk profile.”
The primary naturally occurring estrogens in human females are estradiol, estrone, and estriol. Estradiol is most prominent during a women's reproductive years, and the weaker estrone, is more prominent in postmenopausal women. Estriol is produced in large amounts when a woman is pregnant. Progesterone is the proper name to signify identical-to-natural progesterone; progestin signifies non-bioidentical progesterone. All of these forms of bioidentical hormones are available now, some from your compounding pharmacist and some from your mainstream pharmacists.
These hormones are termed “bio-identical” or “natural” when used in replacement therapy. “Bioidentical hormones” are synthesized in a laboratory from either yams or soy, but the final molecule is identical to those made within the human female. The term “synthetic” has been used for the non-native, non-bioidentical hormones such as Premarin, Provera, Estratest, etc..
Women need to remember that estrogens do not cause cancer. Certainly the evidence indicates that some estrogens (synthetics, like Premarin), at some levels, contribute to some breast cancer in some women. But if estradiol caused breast cancer, then one would expect most breast cancers to occur in women during their reproductive years, when estradiol levels are at the very highest. Instead, it is exactly the opposite: we see breast cancer occurring more often in women in the years when their estrogen levels have fallen dramatically.
A Swedish study involving 29,000 women conducted in the 1990's, reported that estradiol alone did not increase breast cancer risk. An eight year study is underway to examine the health effects of transdermal estradiol and progesterone (bioidentical hormones) on peri-menopausal women.
All the available evidence points to using bio-identical hormones over the now dethroned, non-bioidentical Premarin, Provera, and all their synthetic hormone cousins. Pharmaceutical companies only made Premarin and Provera so they'd have a patentable molecule. They cannot patent NATURAL hormones, so there's no financial gain in marketing and proving their effectiveness. (by Dr. Anne Welch MD, MHS)

Are bioidentical hormones safer and more effective than traditional hormone therapy? They sound like they would be because they're customized to the individual.
There's a lot of interest in bioidentical — or so-called "natural" — hormone therapy for menopause symptoms. However, there's no evidence that bioidentical hormones are safer or more effective than standard hormone replacement therapy.
Bioidentical hormones are custom-mixed formulas containing various hormones that are chemically identical to those naturally made by your body. These prescription and over-the-counter products are marketed as being tailored to a woman's individual hormone needs, typically determined through saliva hormone testing. Manufacturers claim that bioidentical hormones are safer than standard, FDA-approved hormone therapy.
According to the North American Menopause Society (NAMS), custom compounds may provide certain benefits, such as individualized doses and mixtures of products and forms that aren't available commercially. However, they may also pose risks to consumers. These compounds haven't been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and as a result haven't been tested for purity, potency, efficacy or safety. These products may even contain unknown contaminants. For this reason, NAMS does not recommend these custom-mixed products over well-tested, government-approved commercial products for the majority of women.
Also, bioidentical estrogen and progesterone are available in FDA-approved hormone therapy products, including:
Estradiol, such as Estrace, Climara patch and Vivelle-Dot patch
Natural progesterone (Prometrium)
These products come in many different doses and forms. So, you don't need to turn to unregulated, individually compounded products as your only source of "natural" hormones.

FDA Tries to Protect Wyeth From Financial Losses
Acting as agent for drug maker Wyeth this week, a dysfunctional and inept FDA fired the opening salvo in a misguided war on bio-identical hormones. Using typical Orwellian DoubleSpeak, the FDA issued a series of nonsensical and contradictory statements intended to serve the financial interests Wyeth, maker of synthetic hormones Premarin and Prempro, found to cause cancer and heart disease in the 2002 NIH sponsored Women’s Health Initiative Study. Since the study's release, millions of women have switched to the safe and more effective bio-identical hormones, currently prescribed by thousands of physicians, available as FDA approved products at local drug stores and compounding pharmacies. Wyeth has lost market share and suffered financial loss as synthetic hormone profits have declined from 4.4 to 1.2 billion annually from 2001 to 2006.
Wyeth Files a Citizen's Complaint with the FDA
October 2005, in a move to prevent further financial losses, Wyeth filed a Citizen's Complaint with the FDA, requesting the FDA take action against Wyeth’s competition, prohibiting compounding pharmacies from providing bio-identical hormones to their patients. More than 66,000 doctors, patients, and pharmacists filed comments in favor of bioidentical hormones and against Wyeth. In spite of this public outcry, Wyeth continues to abuse the FDA to the harm and detriment of millions of women who use bio-identical hormones.
Analysis of the FDA Statements:
Here is an analysis of the recent FDA statements: a comedy of errors, omissions, contradictions, and Orwellian DoubleSpeak. The January 9, 2008 statements can be found at the FDA website.
FDA Takes Action Against Compounded Menopause Hormone Therapy (1)(2)
Astonishingly, the FDA does not recognize the term, “bio-identical” !
The term “bio-identical” has no defined meaning in any medical or conventional dictionary, and FDA does not recognize the term. Even different medical groups define the term differently. The Endocrine Society, for example, defines “bio-identical” hormones as “compounds that have the exact same chemical and molecular structure as hormones that are produced in the human body,” while the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) defines “bio-identical” hormones as “plant-derived hormones that are biochemically similar or identical to those produced by the ovary or body.”
The term bioidentical has a definite meaning and is widely used. The term, bioidentical, means a hormone chemical structure which is identical to that found in the human body. Both the Endocrine Society and ACOG define the term, "bioIdentical", exactly the same, even though the two definitions are worded differently. It is an embarrassment to medical science that the word BioIdentical has to be used at all. All Hormones should have been manufactured as bio-identical hormones. However, because of U.S. patent law which prevents patenting a bioidentical hormone, the drug industry created chemically altered hormones which could be patented and sold at higher profit margins.
Astonishingly, the FDA is UNAWARE of a basic fact of biochemistry !
Astonishingly, the FDA is UNAWARE that identical chemical structures have the same biological effects. This is the basis for all biochemistry. A water molecule, for example, will have the same biologic effect in the body regardless of how it is synthesized, and this is also true for any other chemical, including hormones.
Many compounding pharmacies use Bio-identical as a marketing term to imply that drugs are natural, or have effects identical to those from hormones made by the body. FDA is not aware of credible scientific evidence to support these claims.
Bio-identical hormones are (1) natural and (2) have effects identical to hormones made in the body. These are basic axioms of biochemistry, and accepted as basic truth by all of biochemistry, including the following medical textbooks Lehninger Principles of Biochemistry, Guyton Textbook of Medical Physiology, and Williams Textbook of Endocrinology.
It is astonishing that the FDA can be UNAWARE of the scientific evidence that is present in every medical textbook, and thousands of Medline references that state that bio-identical hormones ARE natural and DO produce the same effects as human hormones !!
The FDA Does Recognize this basic fact of biochemistry when looking at Synthetic Hormone Structures !
Astonishingly, for the FDA, when it comes to synthetic hormones, all of a sudden, chemical structures that are identical DO have the same biologic effects !!
Compounded products that have identical chemical structures to synthetic hormones can be expected to have the same benefits—and risks— associated with FDA-approved hormone therapy.
This is Orwellian DoubleSpeak again. Compounded natural bio-identical hormones DO NOT have the same chemical structure as synthetic hormones. Compounded hormones are natural and bio-identical, and DO NOT increase risk of increased cancer and heart disease, as was demonstrated for the synthetic hormones in the WHI study. The Women’s Health Initiative study published in JAMA July 2002 showed that Provera, a chemically altered form of progesterone causes increased risk of cancer and heart disease, while the natural, human bioidentical progesterone does not. (5) (6)
The following two studies show that bio-identical hormones are safe: One is the French Cohort Study which showed that Bio-identical hormone therapy does not cause increased risk of breast cancer.(3) The second is the June 2007 NEJM Calcium Score study which showed no increase in heart disease risk with estrogen. (4)
The FDA Attacks Saliva Hormone Testing !
FDA says :
Some compounding pharmacies and other promoters of “BHRT” claim that estrogen levels in a person’s saliva can be tested by practitioners to help practitioners estimate the amount of hormone a person needs and purportedly to “customize” the hormone therapy for individual patients. There is no scientific basis for using saliva testing to adjust hormone levels. Instead, practitioners should adjust hormone therapy dosages based on a patient’s symptoms.
Salivary hormone testing has been done by two large companies for many years, Diagnos-Techs and ZRT. Both Web Sites list plenty of scientific evidence validating saliva hormone testing. ZRT lists references supporting salivary hormone testing here and here.
Here is a comment on Saliva Testing by Kenna Stephenson, MD, clinical professor at University of Texas at Tyler: "Saliva testing has been used in clinical research, including studies conducted at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for more than 30 years. Saliva testing has been available to practicing physicians for over a decade, and Medicare and many insurance companies provide reimbursement for its use. Over years of clinical practice, I have found that saliva testing is the most accurate measurement of the body’s availability of the steroid hormones cortisol and DHEA and the sex steroid hormones estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. Saliva testing correctly identifies the level of hormone at the cellular level (i.e. the biologically interactive form of the hormone), in contrast to a serum (blood) test, which measures the level of hormone circulating in the bloodstream."
In addition, salivary hormone testing for cortisol and melatonin is accepted and used by NASA on the astronauts on the space shuttle. (7)
A PubMed Medline search shows many research studies validating the use of salivary hormone testing.(8)
The FDA Claims Ignorance of Its Own FDA Approvals !
Some pharmacies promote hormone therapy for men in the form of testosterone to treat a decline in the level of testosterone in older men, sometimes referred to as andropause. There are currently no FDA-approved products for the treatment of andropause. In addition, there are no FDA-approved testosterone drugs for women.
Testosterone insufficiency in older men is associated with increased risk of death over the next 20 years. (17) Testosterone has been FDA approved for both men and women for decades. FDA approved testosterone commercial products can be obtained at the corner drugstore. Androgel for example, is FDA approved and contains testosterone. Estra-test is an FDA approved hormone for women which contains testosterone.
The following is a list of FDA-approved bio-identical hormone commercial products available at the drugstore commonly used to treat menopause and andropause:
Alora (estradiol): FDA approved 1996 - Watson Labs
Climara (estradiol): FDA approved 1994 - Bayer
FemPatch : FDA approved 1997 - Parke Davis
Vivelle-Dot (estradiol): FDA approved 1994 - Novartis
Estraderm: FDA approved 1986 - Novartis
Esclim: FDA approved 1998 - Women's First Healthcare
Estrace (estradiol): FDA approved 1993 -Bristol Myers Squibb
Estring: FDA approved 1996 - Pharmacia UpJohn
Prometrium (natural progesterone): FDA approved 1998 - Solvay
Androgel (natural testosterone): FDA approved 2000 - Unimed Pharmaceuticals
Crinone: FDA approved 1997 - Columbia Labs
FDA approved testosterone:Testoderm, Androderm, AndroGel
The FDA Tries to Ban Estriol !
Astonishingly, the FDA wants to ban estriol, a popular component of natural hormone therapy for women.
Some compounded “BHRT” drugs contain an estrogen component called estriol. No drug containing estriol has been approved by FDA and the safety and effectiveness of estriol is unknown. Pharmacies may not compound drugs containing estriol unless they have an FDA-sanctioned investigational new drug application.
Like many commonly prescribed drugs (e.g. quinine, Phenobarbital, tinidazole), estriol has a monograph from the U.S. Pharmacopeia (USP). When Congress passed the FDA Modernization Act in 1997, it clearly indicated that drugs with a USP monograph could be compounded. 50,000 compounding pharmacists, 15,000 doctors and 2 million women have been prescribing, making and using estriol for decades. FDA approval is not required since this is regulated by the states, not the FDA.
Myth 1) Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is unregulated.
Fact: Bioidentical hormones – like all compounded medications – are made from FDA- and USP-registered materials – the same used by pharmaceutical manufacturers – and their preparation is well regulated by state boards of pharmacy that have responsibility for overseeing all pharmacy practice in each state. Pharmacies that compound medications, including bioidentical hormones, are regulated by state pharmacy boards – similar to the relationship doctors have with state medical boards. In addition, there are also national standards and guidelines for compounded medications. The ingredients and their suppliers are regulated at the federal level by the FDA, with additional oversight provided by the U.S. Pharmacopeia.
Myth 2) Compounded bioidentical hormones are unsafe because they aren’t FDA-approved.
Fact: Compounded medications are regulated by state boards of pharmacy and are not subject to federal laws designed to regulate mass-produced drugs. This is because they are customized to meet the unique needs of patients based on the specific orders of a physician. The FDA approval process is designed for mass-produced manufactured drugs; it is universally recognized that holding compounded medications to these standards would completely eliminate their availability. Compounded medications are in a similar position as manufactured products prescribed for off-label use, which constitutes about a fifth of all prescriptions. They are not approved by the FDA for such use, and yet it is well accepted that physicians should be able to use their discretion to prescribe medications for off-label use.
Myth 3) Bioidentical hormones are just as risky as manufactured products like Premarin and Prempro.
Fact: There are no studies comparing the two types of therapies, so we cannot make any direct comparisons. The Women’s Health Initiative study examined only Premarin and Prempro, which do not use the same ingredients that are used to compound bioidentical hormones. To date there have been no studies that show a link between BHRT and cancer/strokes/heart attack, however the pharmacy community supports and funds studies to better determine the risk profile of BHRT.
A physician is trained and licensed to diagnose disease and to determine appropriate therapy for patients. A physician uses clinical expertise to determine appropriate therapies for patients. Premarin and Prempro may be appropriate for some patients. Bioidentical hormones may be appropriate for others. It is up to doctors to make that determination.
Myth 4) Pharmacists are recklessly promoting BHRT as safe and effective.
Fact: Compounded medicines are a lot like off-label prescriptions: they are not subject to FDA approval and, as a result, cannot be marketed as safe or effective. In fact, the FTC Act, 15 U.S.C. § 41 et seq., prohibits unfair or deceptive acts and practices, including false and unsubstantiated advertising claims. It is already illegal for a pharmacy to make claims without substantiation or to overstate the health benefits of the products they promote.
Myth 5) Bioidentical is a misleading term.
Fact: The chemical structures of bioidentical hormones are identical to those produced by the human body. Because the chemical structure is identical, these hormones are often referred to as bioidentical.

What Is Hormone Testing? Menopausal hormone levels vary throughout the day, as well as from day to day. NAMS does not recommend hormone level testing.
2008 9-page transcript of a talk (with slides) by Bruce Patsner, MD, JD, entitled “Bioidentical Hormone Therapy: What’s the Harm?” There has been a clear lack of medical evidence supporting either the efficacy or safety claims of “individualized” prescription drugs.
FDA Takes Action “The pharmacy operations improperly claim that their drugs...are superior to FDA-approved menopausal hormone therapy drugs and prevent or treat serious diseases, including Alzheimer's disease, stroke, and various forms of cancer.”
Men taking estrogen or men who take female hormones may notice...
increased breast size
darkening of nipples
slower growth of facial hair
lowered risk of prostate cancer
slower progression of baldness
feminization of body shape
more feminine complexion
reduced chance of heart attack
Also, men taking estrogen probably will have...
increase risk of breast cancer
increase the chance of liver or gall bladder disease or tumors
decrease the size of testicles
lower interest in sex
mood or personality is altered in unpredictable ways
increase the chance of blood clots which can be fatal
Men Estrogen Exposure
Besides men taking estrogen for medical reasons, male exposure to estrogen is more common than you might think.
Estrogen is found in common environmental things such as manufactured plastics and other synthetic materials.
Other estrogens are in the form of metabolites generated from pesticides or steroid hormones used to stimulate growth in livestock.
These environmental estrogens are often called "estrogen mimics" because what most of these molecules do is attach themselves to estrogen receptors in cells and mimic the action of the body's natural estrogen.
Excessive exposure to estrogen mimics set up the potential problems for your reproductive anatomy and physiology.
Prostate Enlargement and Prostate Cancer
High levels of estrogen is believed to possibly be the primary cause of prostate enlargement and prostate cancer.
Men produce estrogen (Estradiol) but in much lower amounts than women. Men also produce progesterone, but about half a much as women. Just like women, men produce both estrogen and progesterone. Progesterone is made in men by the adrenal glands and testes.
A common mistaken belief is that testosterone causes prostate cancer.
Studies had shown that men with the highest level of testosterone have the least prostate enlargement.
Also, men with the highest level of estrogen have enlarged prostates.
Declining testosterone from aging, together with increasing level of estrogen in men, is the most likely reason for prostate enlargement and cancer in men.
Ways to battle high estrogen levels...
Cut out the estrogen mimicking chemicals in our life.
If possible, when you need to store food use glass or ceramics.
Use a simple soap.
Use a simple detergent with less chemicals.
If you must use plastics, do not heat them up in the microwave oven or leave them in the sun.
Use natural pest control not pesticides.
Don't use herbicides.
Eat hormone free meats.
Avoid synthetic chemicals.
Buy organic produce, the produce grown without synthetic fertilizer, pesticides, or herbicides.
Use condoms without spermicide for birth control.
Natural progesterone cream lowers estrogen dominance in men
Natural progesterone cream has many benefits...
Reduces prostate size
Progesterone cream can help to reduce the prostate size.
Reduces prostatism symptoms
Symptoms of prostatism (benign enlargement of the prostate gland) such as urinary urgency and frequency decreased considerably after application of Natural Progesterone cream.
Enhance sex drive
Physiological doses of progesterone also appear to enhance libido (sex drive).
Natural progesterone cream prevents osteoporosis in men.
Natural progesterone cream might decrease male balding due to the corresponding rise in testosterone.
Helps with rheumatoid arthritis
Progesterone cream might relieve pain and swelling of rheumatoid arthritis when rubbed into the joints.
Also, progesterone has no feminizing characteristics.
Estrogen is the primary female sex hormone, and can be produced naturally or artificially. Estrogens are steroid compounds, named after the estrous cycle, which illustrates the hormonal changes women go through when having a menstrual cycle. There are three types of estrogen that occur naturally in women: estriol, estradiol and estrone. Premarin is an artificial estrogen that contains the steroidal estrogens equilenin and equilin. Just as estrogen is what makes a woman grow long hair and breasts, have a high voice and otherwise appear feminine, when a man takes estrogen, he will experience similar results.
Scientists began tests using estrogen in 1923; Emmenin, the first pharmaceutical estrogen that was effective orally, hit the market in 1930. Toward the end of the century, some transsexual women began choosing to take estrogen as a part of hormone-replacement therapy, to appear more feminine and pass as a female in society. Estrogen given to transgendered women includes ethinyl estradiol, estradiol valerate, estradiol, estradiol acetate, estradiol enanthate, estradiol cypionate,conjugated estrogens and esterified estrogens.
Estrogen has recently been used experimentally by Peter Albertsen of Connecticut to treat men who have prostate cancer. Estrogen is not yet approved to treat prostate cancer, but it is suspected that, after removal of the infected areas of the prostate, taking estrogen will prevent the cancer from spreading further. If the disease is at risk of returning to the body, some doctors will suppress the testosterone in the male body, but prescribing estrogen pills is so far very rare.
Men who take estrogen may notice side effects including hair growth (on the head), vision changes, diabetes (type II), mood swings, changes in body temperature, changes in voice, breast-tissue growth, decreased interest in sex, skin irritation and acne, reduced body hair, change in gonadal size, stretch marks, weight gain, enlarged nipples, and a change in body odor. It is not advised to take doses of estrogen if you have a history of breast cancer in the family.
If you are a man taking Estrogen to prevent the spreading of cancer, the benefits of staying healthy may outweigh the changes and side effects your body may experience. If you are a trans female, you may also enjoy the benefits that taking estrogen provides, but you may also need to use estrogen in conjunction with other hormones in the hormone-replacement therapy regimen. Talk to your doctor if you are interested in hormone-replacement therapy or would like to know how estrogen can prevent certain kinds of cancer, including prostate cancer.
If you experience joint swelling, rash, or difficulty using your muscles, you may be allergic to estrogen. Estrogen allergies are rare but serious. Speak to your doctor immediately if you are experiencing these symptoms. Do not take more estrogen than your doctor has prescribed in an attempt to see effects more quickly. Estrogen overdose is serious, and can result in death. If you suspect you have taken an overdose of estrogen, call the Poison Control Center or 911 immediately. Only take estrogen that has been prescribed to you.
What is this blood electrification technology basically about? It's about using small amounts of electric current to disable or kill virus, bacteria, and other pathogens (such as yeast and mycoplasmas) in the body.
Are there other devices which safely use electric current on the body? Yes. Muscle stimulators relieve pain, reduce spasms and edema, tonify weak muscles, and assist the healing process, run at from 1 to 130 Hz. TENS units are used to block pain run at about 80 to 90 Hz. Interferential Therapy units are a type of muscle stimulator run at 3000 to 4000 Hz. Bio Feedback instruments used to modify behavior and retrain the nervous and muscular systems, run from below 1Hz to about 40 Hz. Bone Growth Stimulators, used to heal broken bones, run at various frequencies. Deep Brain Stimulators, which use implanted electrodes to impart electrical pulses, run from between 120 and 160 Hz directly to the brain to control involuntary muscular tremors in Parkinson's disease. Heart Pacemakers use an electrical impulse to regulate the hearts ryhthm.
Is blood electrification and magnetic pulsing safe? Yes, blood electrification delivers less current than the AMA approved TENS units, and the Pulser delivers only momentary pulses of a magnetic strength that is less than that of MRI (Magnetic Nuclear Resonance Imaging) body scanners. Dr Steven Kaali, patent owner for 2 blood electrification devices, said that electricity itself has no toxic side effects. Of course, this depends on your not using them longer and more often than you should (producing too much cleansing reactions). Also, with low frequencies (4-10hz), it depends on you not taking herbs & medicines anytime other than right after doing blood electrification.
How long have these devices been available? Since 1991 when these were invented by Bob Beck (after reading news reports) as an alternative to the Medical Machines idea of only utilizing this technology on patients by extracting their blood, treating it electrically, and then re-injecting it (as a dialysis machine does). This, of course would be timely, costly, and painful. Also it would keep the technology out of the hands of the common man and in the control of the Medical System.
Is using electricity for health a new concept? No way! The earliest recorded medical use of electricity is in 46A.D. when the Roman emperors physician recommended treatment with the electric torpedo fish for rheumatism and gout. Benjamin Franklin also used electricity to treat people with neurologic problems. For a complete history of medical electrical devices you could visit the Bakken Museum of ElectroMedicine in Minneapolis. Also, there's an article in Science & Vie Magazine revealing that one of the methods used by immune cells to kill bacteria and fungi is to shock them with a surge of enzyme triggered electricity. So actually electricity has been used for health ever since the first human existed!
Are there any devices like the Magnetic Pulser that are medically approved? Yes. Sota Instruments Magnetic Pulser has been granted a medical device license, being classified as a Class II Medical Device which allows for purchase without the need of a prescription. It is listed as a device that assists in the healing process by improving tissue oxygenation and blood flow. It can assist in reducing edema as the result of soft tissue injury and fractures. It may also assist with symptomatic relief of chronic pain associated with osteoarthritis and musculoskeletal injuries. Also, Neotonus products have been approved since 1998. 'ExMI™' innovative technology (Extracorporeal Magnetic Innervation) uses non-invasive pulsed magnetic fields to treat neurological and neuromuscular disorders. It works by producing a highly focused time-varying (pulsed) magnetic field that penetrates deep into a targeted region of the body to painlessly stimulate nerve activity in the region which causes muscle contractions and increased circulation. (ps- this system is stronger than ours which isn't sufficient to affect most muscles.)
How does Magnet Therapy compare to using a Magnetic Pulser? Magnets provide a constant force field, but a varying (non-constant on/off) magnetic field is needed to induce electric currents in your body. Electric current is essential for causing lymph flow and deactivating microbes. Magnetic Pulsers 'pulse' magnetism into the body which induces electric current therein. Magnets are good for some things (pain and inflamation) but not for creating electric current like a Pulser does.
How do you know this isn't just a well hyped scam? Because this bio-technology is based on reproducable laboratory research findings which prove the consistent negative effects that electric current has on microbes. It's science. Period. Also, this author and thousands others have gotten well from viral and bacterial diseases by using these devices. And there is a major medical device patent issued for the use of blood electrification technology. (click here for the patent).
Is the Beck Electrifiers electric current harmful to the blood at all? Yes and No. White blood cells (immune cells) that are weakened by infection can have their cell walls ruptured (a process called Lysing) which will cause their demise. The rate at which the weakened cells are destroyed by the electric current is dependent on the amount of time the person does blood electrification daily. This is why it is very unwise to use it any more daily than what the instructions recommend (especially for the first 3 weeks), especially if the persons immunity is already low. But this is ultimately good to have the infected blood cells destroyed so that the body will have the opportunity to make new replacements and have access to the viruses that were hiding inside so they can be eliminated. Lab tests on my blood have proved to me that healthy blood cells aren't negatively affected by this electric current. I had my blood tested for # of white blood cells (wbc) right after 6 weeks of blood electrification, and then a week after stopping blood electrification (which is enough time for the body to replace destroyed wbc's). The count wasn't higher in the second test which proves it doesn't destroy non-infected cells. Also, in the Biophysics Journal, Vol 58 Oct 1990, pages 897-903 the authors wrote that "Human erythrocytes treated with AC fields for hours were shown to have normal shape, volume, and permeabilities to potassium and sodium."
Is the electric current helpful to the blood? Yes, blood viewed under a microscope that has been treated electrically no longer displays the common problem of the red blood cells clumping together (which hinders the cells ability to absorb and release oxygen). Also it becomes so much more 'vital' that it will stay alive inside a sealed microscope slide 7 times longer than untreated blood will. It has been found that the electrical current recharges the energy level of the blood cells which results in an ATP energy production increase of as much as 500%! Read Effects of Electric Currents on ATP Generation in Rat Skin by Cheng & Nook, Clin Ortho and Rel Res. number 171, Nov-Dec 1982. This is why some people use these devices just for the extra energy they get as a result.
What is meant by 4 hz? The 'hz' stands for 'hertz' which is cycles per second. 4hz is a scientific abreviation that means the voltage output completes a cycle of its polarity from positive to negative and back to positive four times a second. 90hz is 90 cycles per second.
Is this type of treatment dependent on a specific frequency like Rife technology? No, this is dependent mostly on the amount of electricity applied to the arteries, although the lower frequencies are more effective. Click here to read more.
Do these devices produce a harmful 'EMF' (electro-magnetic field)? Blood electrification doesn't produce any EMF. The Pulser produces some but only for a hundredth of a second every time it pulses. EMF that is harmful is strong and continuous (such as what you get when living under a high voltage line or watching TV within 6 feet of it).
What are your recommendations for making sure the body has eliminated all herbs & drugs within 23 hours? Drink plenty of liquids that are cleansing such as water, fruit juice, and vegetable juice. If one has poor kidney function then he/she should take one of these food diuretics; watermelon, cucumber, or parsley. Sweating is not advised because it is too dehydrating although it helps eliminate toxins from the skin. Rebounding is good because it keeps the lymph fluid moving.
Why did Bob Beck and other device manufacturers claim that these devices cause electroporation? Because Beck mistakenly thought that the high-absorption effect was electroporation without studying the science journals enough to realize that it couldn't be electroporation which is a very severe and unwanted effect. And the other companies want to stay in harmony with Beck in order to keep getting his referrals. And none of them want to look foolish by saying that they were wrong to begin with.
Does the Magnetic Pulser also cause the high-absorption effect? No, because the induced electric current from the Pulser lasts for only a hundredth of a second each time it pulses. This is not enough to activate the blood cells membrane transport system long enough to absorb much of anything.
Are there any patents for devices using the same kind of technology that the Pulser uses? Yes. Patent # 4683873 is about a device very similar to ours. It proposes its use for speading the healing of broken bones by using it 8-14 hours a day. To read the whole patent click here.
Do you have any evidence that 90 hz also disables microbes? Yes. Reports from users indicate that it also is effective in that way. I've gotten two reports of healing (gastritis in one case) from people using this frequency and people have been getting cleansing reactions (headaches, tiredness) from using the 90 hz frequency setting which is a sure sign of microbe die-off. Also it proved capable of eliminating candida from my bloodstream (which was verified by live blood analysis by Dr Barclay Tait, ph 423-681-2312) although I had a bad case of intestinal candida infection and twice have gotten over the flu within 1.5 days using 90hz. But in my experiments with it I've found that for some stubborn viral infections (such as Epstein Barr) a lower frequency is necessary to completely eradicate the virus.
What is the story on the newly introduced 30 hz setting? I was experimenting with different frequencies in order to find one that was also transfection-free but more powerful than 90 hz and I settled on using 30 hz which so far has proven the most ideal for blood electrification since it is nearly as powerful as 4 hz but without the transfection effects.
Should seasoning herbs and alcoholic drinks also be avoided except right after device usage (at 4 hz)? Seasoning usually isn't a problem but you should also avoid all minor medicines (including laxatives and headache medicine), high dosages of some vitamins (vitamin A, D, Beta Carotene, niacin), garlic, caffeine, nicotine, and recreational drugs. Salt and other minerals are needful for adequate current flow in the bloodstream though. It's advisable to use sea salt every meal. Salt is an essential nutrient and is especially needed by the adrenal glands for normal functioning. Sea salt used in moderation does not cause high blood pressure.
How do I know the devices are working for me? Unless you have considerable immune dysfunction you will get varying degrees of cleansing reactions such as headaches, stiff joints, nausea, sleepiness, weakness, foggy thinking, and dulled speech. Blood cell lysing and the immune system chemically attacking disabled viruses and bacteria causes the cleansing reactions. The intensity of the cleansing reactions is controllable by the length of time that you daily use the device. Longer usage time equals more cleansing reactions. Users limit the time according to how they feel the next day.
Do these devices disable the good bacteria in the intestines as well as the bad? The Pulser could possibly affect the good bacteria if used on the abdomen more than is recommended for assisting blood electrification (which doesn't affect the intestinal contents). It is advisable that one take a good (expensive) Acidophilus supplement for one month after stopping use of the Pulser if it was used much on the abdomenal area.
Is there any good bacteria in the body except in the intestines that I should be worried about killing? Not that I know of.
How important is the Magnetic Pulser? If you are fighting a systemic infection then you CAN NOT completely be rid of the bacteria or virus unless you are using BOTH the blood electrification unit and a Magnetic Pulser. The Pulser is necessary to stimulate lymph flow so that the microbe-destroying immune cells will have an unimpeded flow from the bone marrow (where they're created) to the bloodstream. Keep in mind that blood electrification only stops microbes reproduction and that it's the immune cells that kill them. Also if there are any stray viruses in the peripheral veins of the lymph system the increased circulation helps move them to the main lymph arteries so they can be destroyed by immune cells. The Pulser also breaks up electrical attractions between viruses and other cells that can keep viruses from freely circulating in the bloodstream which is necessary for them to be affected by blood electrification.
What is lymph fluid? Lymph is basically blood without the red blood cells. Fluid from the blood flows into the lymph system (leaving the red blood cells in the blood), flows into the lymph vessels and nodes, and then empties back again into the bloodstream close to the heart. But most everyones lymph flow is stagnant and moving too slow (due to lack of exercise, carnivorous diets, cheese, not enough water, etc) and especially needs the help of the Pulser to force some circulation of the lymph.
How important is it to continue treatment (blood electrification and magnetic pulsing) once it is started? Very important. Once electrical treatment is stopped (before microbes are all eliminated) then the microbes reproduce at a faster rate than phagocytic white blood cells (neutrophils, monocytes) can be resupplied into the blood to destroy them. This imbalance is in favor of the infecting microbe.
Why is it recommended that the negative side of the Pulsers coil be placed against the body when pulsing? The negative (-) side is magnetic North (north pole of a magnet). Bio-Magnetics people say that north pole energy arrests bacteria and growths, controls inflammations, reduces congestion, calms nerves, reduces pain, slows down overactive organs, attracts oxygen, increases alkalinity, contracts tissue, controls bleeding, and dissolves fat. Magnetic south pole energy is said to help areas of poor circulation and to stimulate underactive organs or glands. Unfortunately it also aids tumor and bacteria growth.
Are these devices safe to use on someone with electrical implants (such as a pacemaker)? A blood electrification unit delivers electric current into the bloodstream. This current, like all others follows the path of least resistance. When both electrodes are placed on the arteries of one wrist then the current makes a loop traveling along the arterial paths which are through the hand and also down the arm around where the elbow is and then back up to the wrist. So its effects basically don't extend past the elbow. As far as the Pulser goes, I wouldn't use it within 12" of any sensitive electrical implant. My tests with a secondary coil revealed no perceptible electromagnetic change at that distance from the coil of the Magnetic Pulser.
What does it mean if someone gets better using these devices but still doesn't feel totally healthy? It means that he/she has gotten rid of the source of the problem but not the results of the problem. The results may be a congested liver, weakened adrenals, mineral imbalances, low thyroid output, lessened acidophilus count in the intestines, weakened cardiovascular system, kidney stones, gallbladder stones, systemic Candida, hard to kill intestinal bacteria and parasites, and countless other nusances. As a person corrects these remaining imbalances with the help of a Naturopath he/she will slowly regain his/her feeling of vitality. Also, even without other problems, sometimes it takes a while to recover as the immune system slowly replaces destroyed immune cells.
Is there anyone these devices can't help? Everyone is a carrier of multitudes of bacteria and viruses that these devices are said to help clear out. For instance, a book about Chronic Fatigue Syndrome states that 97% of adults carry the Epstein-Barr Virus. The immune system is constantly expending energy to keep bacteria and viruses from multiplying to harmful levels. If they were all eliminated then the body's energy could be redirected to avenues of healing and building instead of defense.
How do you explain why some people can do blood electrification without any good or bad effects? The electrification just keeps newly created viruses from entering other blood cells. That's stage one of the viral removal process. Stage two is if the immune system is working then the deactivated viruses are eaten or chemically dissolved and the person feels a 'cleansing reaction'. If it isn't working (such as in late stage AIDS or CFIDS) then the person is up a creek without a paddle unless they use a herbal product that increases immunity by 3-8 times. It's called MGN-3 and this site sells it: (click here)
What if someone uses 4hz 2 hours daily but still doesn't feel relief from a viral infection? I'd recommend they use it more hours a day. I once had a virus that I electrified for 2 hours a day for 3 months and it was still there until I used it for about 8 hours a day. The very next day I didn't feel the internal 'heat' I normally felt from my immune systems attack on this virus. 2 hours a day of 4hz is known to work for HIV and Epstein Barr, but there are many more types of viruses out there that may need much more treatment to get rid of. You have to experiment and find out what works for you.
If the Beck approach is so good why have we not seen more testimonials about the treatment and why has it not been popularized? This is a very good question. I helped a person get over AIDS but she wouldn't allow me to talk to her at all. (Her chiropractor was my go-between). I think people in general are ashamed of disease, especially sexually transmitted ones. Few people realize or care about the fact that their one healing testimony can lead the way for hundreds of others. So right now people have to enter the doorway of faith in order to try these products because there are so few testimonies and proof by lab tests. Maybe it's best that way also if this really is a gift from God. Who knows? I've stopped getting frustrated over it though. I know they work great though for anyone who uses them diligently.
Why doesn't Beck make more accessible the clinical studies on the effects of blood electrification against AIDS? Beck does in fact bring a stack of patient reports with him to the lecture table. However, in the interest of lecture time constraints, he does not invite every person from the audience to come up to the stage to handle the papers. This would cause chaos for a 45 minute lecture. He always invites any medically credentialed practitioner to the table to see the studies and verify them for the audience. Another reason he is reluctant to talk up the studies is due to the fact that they rely for their interpretation upon the results of the Kerry Mullis PCR testing for viral fragments. Of course, Dr. Mullis himself now disavows the diagnostic value of PCR due to the problem of cross-reactivity for the PCR test with dozens of other viruses and DNA fragments, making the test almost useless. So Beck doesn't really promote the studies too much, other than to say that the PCR counts were high and then were lowered for whatever significance that is. The bottom line is that the patients recovered and that's really Beck's message.
Are there customers who've had success with these devices that I can talk to personally?No. Nobody that leads a normal life wants to leave themselves open for strangers to call them at any hour of the day and take an average of 30 minutes on the phone asking them a miriad of questions which can all be answered on a web site anyway. When I first heard about people getting over chronic fatigue syndrome by using these devices I too had some skepticism but I had to overcome it and take the risk because I had everything to gain and only a couple hundred dollars to possibly lose. My life was trashed completely by this infirmity and I needed to do something. So I took the risk and was free of my disease in just 2 months after having suffered with it for 16 years. Shirley Maclain properly entitled her book about her personal spiritual growth "Out On A Limb" because that's where the fruit in life is; on the outskirts of the limbs where one has to take a risk to climb out there and pick them. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Life is full of possible risks and sometimes you fall and get hurt but the experts in life wisely choose their risks and enjoy such sweetness as a result of their choice and faith-filled venture into the unknown.
Is it Ok to do blood electrification on babies?Absolutely. Actually they handle the die-off much better than adults since their organs are "fresh" and work really well at cleansing out the resultant garbage from the bloodstream. I've had employees use it on their babies with great success when they were sick.
Are there any meridians (energy pathways) affected by electrode placement at the wrist? The electrode site at the little finger side of the wrist correspond to the heart meridian. The heart will therefore be energized. As the heart has direct interaction with the kidney and spleen and reinforces the functions of the liver, it will have an overall energizing affect on the body as it stimulates all those organs.
What about using blood electrification against colds and flu? Once when I caught a flu bug, I used the Pulser all over my body and did blood electrification at 90hz for 3 hours straight each day (switching to other wrist after each hour). It only lasted 1 + 1/2 days!
Why doesn't your blood electrifier utilize DC current like the original experiments of Kaali and Schwolsky? Because frequencies less than 4hz (and DC) create free floating oxygen in the blood which is a free radical which damages the blood cells. Click here to read more.
What if I already feel too toxic to use these devices? You can increase the detoxifying action of your kidneys by drinking the kidney cleansing tea (recommended later) and taking 50mg Silymarin (Milk Thistle extract which detoxes the liver) daily for 3 weeks previous to using the Pulser. Then use the following info.
How do I prevent getting toxic reactions? Eat light vegetarian meals for at least the preceeding 12 hours before device usage, and also for the first 3 days of use. Also drink lots of pure water (especially before device usage), and eat or juice cucumbers or watermelon (both are diuretics). You can also take 1 tsp of Barley Grass Powder in 2-3 oz of water 3 times per day (sip slowly). Barley Grass helps the liver from accumulating too many toxins (dead parasites) and is high in S.O.D., an enzyme which protects all cells from damage by toxins. Start slowly and daily increase the time of device usage for the first few days. If you wake up with a headache then you might want to use the device only 15 minutes that day. Drink 3 cups daily of Blood Purifying Tea for the first week of Pulser usage. (See end of Q&A for recipe.) Take psyllium husks stirred into liquid twice daily to prevent constipation (which can hinder detoxification). Take plant derived digestive enzymes such as Maximizer by R-garden, (1-800-800-1927). It also contains Protease which is really excellent for cleaning up trash in the blood stream because it is a protein digester.
What if I have bad digestion? Before anything else you should do the gallbladder flush which is said to restore proper flow of bile for digestion of fats and proteins. Also start taking a digestive enzyme capsule or acidophilus capsule with each meal to make up for the lack of acidophilus in the intestines due to use of the Pulser. The best vegetarian digestive enzyme I know of is made by Cell Tech (product #501). You can buy it from someone who sells Cell Tech products (they sell mostly blue green algae) or become a distributor by calling 1-800-800-1300. If you take the acidophilus and you feel that the killing of it by the Pulser is leaving your digestion too weak, then stop pulsing your intestines and make sure you take an expensive acidophilus powder with water or fruit juice every morning at least 15 minutes before breakfast. (Also mentally relax while digesting food.)
How can I get tested for intestinal candida, parasitic infection, intestinal bacterial infection, leaky gut syndrome, and other maladies of the gastrointestinal tract? Your health care provider can order test kits from Great Smokies Diagnostic Labs in North Carolina for these problems and/or many others.
Will these devices kill worms in the intestines and organs? Blood electrification is said to have negative affects on worms only in the bloodstream (although I am not sure about this). To quickly kill worms in the intestines you can try the following herbal remedy for 4 weeks previous to using the Blood Electrifier. The most potent product for this is quadruple strength Green (Hull) Black Walnut Tincture. It is available from Clearwater Herbs in Florida at 813-449-0772. This is a greenish colored liquid tincture. Most other Black Walnut tinctures are not green, which means that the hulls were not processed when fresh and are therefore very weak. The dosage is 5 drops in 1/4 cup water with 1/4 tspn powdered vit C stirred in. Take this every morning at least 10 minutes before breakfast. After 7 days, you can take 2 tsp once every week for the remaining 3 weeks. If you have pets, you should give them Black Walnut also (dose by weight). Microscopic protozoan parasites have been successfully eliminated with citrus seed extract and the herb Artemisia Annua. (both are in "Artemesia Forte"). If sensitive to citrus seed extract, then order only "Artemisia Annua".
Should I be concerned about possible intestinal worms? Yes, everybody should who has ever played on dirt, eaten meat, or eaten raw vegetables. Most ancient cultures took something every year to kill intestinal parasites but we think we're too advanced for that nowadays. But guess what? We're not! Almost everybody has some unwanted critters inside them. And to be truly healthy we must be free of all parasites that rob us of needed nutrients and poison us with their wastes.
What is known to work for people with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome? For chronic fatigue of a viral type, Bob Beck recommends that users work up to using the blood electrifier at 4hz 2 hours daily for 6 weeks along with using the Pulser on all areas of the body (but especially along the lymph routes). Then consult a Naturopath to help correct other remaining problems.
Can these devices help eliminate Candida? Blood electrification can eliminate it temporarily from the bloodstream but it also needs to be eliminated from the intestines (their home base) which has been accomplished with the frequency of 464 hz (via Rife devices).
What about AIDS? Bob Beck believes from his experiences with helping AIDS patients that anyone who uses the devices 100% as directed will definitely experience remission. He recommends getting a PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) test (which counts the # of retrovirus DNA/RNA fragments in the blood sample) before treatment and then 30 days after finishing the treatment (to give the body time to flush out all the deactivated viruses). This test typically costs $60. The standard HIV antibody test is worthless for determining the absence of HIV because once you get infected you will always have HIV antibodies. He says patients should expect their CD4 T-cell count to initially drop during treatment and then dramatically rise after a few months to over 200. This is because the virus damaged white blood cells will start to be removed from the system as the immune system will replace the removed ones. Beck claims that if these patients don't also use the Magnetic Pulser that after a few months or years detectable reinfection will occur as a result of the viruses that were in the lymph leaching back into the bloodstream. He also highly recommends using colloidal silver to help prevent opportunistic infections during the treatment period.
Is it true that AIDS patients get worse blood test results within 3 weeks of starting Beck therapy? Yes, after starting this therapy blood tests will show viral counts increasing and CD4 counts (immune cells) decreasing. That is due to lysing (cell wall rupture) of infected (and therefore weakened) immune cells (CD4 cells included) due to exposure to electricity. But those infected cells need to be replaced anyway since they are just viral baby factories. The viral count increases due to baby viruses escaping from within the immune cells as they rupture. But fortunately they are electrified as soon as they leave the ruptured cell and enter the blood plasma. That keeps them from being able to infect other immune cells. So what seems like a disaster is actually just part of the process that is necessary for success (usually within 2 months). Eventually the CD4 counts will be normal and viral counts zero.
What about Ebola and Dengue? They are also viruses with a quick life cycle. If I were infected with Ebola or any of the other quick-kill infectious diseases I would blood electrify constantly in order to stop them.
Kidney Cleansing Tea Helps dissolves all obstructions in kidneys for more efficient functioning. In 10 cups of pure water soak 2 oz each of Hydrangea, Gravel Root, Marshmallow Root, Fo-Ti. Soak for 4 hours or overnight. Heat to boiling then simmer for 20 minutes. Use a glass pot if available. Boil 4 bunches of fresh parsley in 1 quart of water for 3 minutes. Pour in with herbal tea. Strain out herbs from the tea, put in empty pot and add 6 cups water. Boil and simmer for 10 minutes. Strain and pour this tea into first batch. Add 8 oz pure Black Cherry Concentrate. Divide into 3 containers and freeze 2 of them. (1 container is for 7 days). Keep 1 container in refrigerator. Every day mix 1 tbspn vegetable glycerin with 1 cup tea and drink throughout the day. Take these supplements: Ginger capsules (1each meal), Uva Ursi capsules (1 with breakfast, 2 with supper), Vitamin B6 250mg once daily, Magnesium Oxide 300mg once daily. Drink the tea for 3 weeks. To avoid making new obstructions abstain from drinking tea and cocoa and phosphated beverages (most soda pops). This kidney cleanse should be done twice a year.
Bring 3 cups water & Licorice to full boil, turn to low heat, wait 10 minutes, add other herbs, wait 10 minutes, turn off heat. Strain and store in refrigerator. Before drinking add 3 parts water to 1 part tea. To increase sweetness add more Licorice. To decrease bitterness reduce the Chaparral.
Blood Purifying Tea #2
32oz water, 1/8 cup Burdock, 1 tsp Licorice root.
Put herbs in water and bring to boil. Then turn down heat and cook for 15 minuts.
Then turn heat very low and add: 1/4 cup Red Clover, 1 tsp Chaparral.
Cover and cook for 15 minutes.
Drink mostly this all day for very potent blood purification.
This regimen causes the gallbladder to squeeze out most of its stones and sludge into the intestines. These are what obstructs the normal bile flow from the liver, through the gallbladder, and into the intestines to mix with and digest food. Normal bile flow is essential for digestion and liver purity. Needed: 4 tbspn Epsom Salt, 1/2 cup virgin olive oil, 1 large pink grapefruit, unsweetened apple juice, Psyllium husk powder. Choose a day for the cleanse that will allow you to rest the next day. The day before the cleanse drink plenty of water and limit your intake of animal protein and food made mostly of flour.
Day of Cleanse: Take no unnecessary medicines and vitamins. Drink only diluted apple juice with psyllium husks mixed in, or eat a light breakfast or lunch (no fat, oil, or animal protein).
2 PM No more solid food. The diluted apple juice should not have psyllium husks in it. Mix Epsom salt in 3 cups water. Stir and store in refrigerator. This makes 4 servings of salt water.
6 PM Drink one serving of saltwater. To improve taste add 1/8 tspn vit C powder. Remove the olive oil and grapefruit from the refrigerator.
8 PM Drink another serving of salt water. Get all your pre-bed tasks done.
9:45 PM Pour 1/2 cup olive oil into a pint jar. Juice the grapefruit and add 2/3 cup of its strained juice to the olive oil. You can add the juice of 1 lemon to enhance the taste. Close the jar and shake until watery.
10 PM Drink as much of the potion as you can within 5 minutes. Lie down flat on your back with your head elevated. Stay motionless for 20 minutes.
11 PM Drink diluted apple juice with psyllium husks mixed in. (helpful, but not mandatory step)
Morning Drink a serving of salt water. If you have nausea or indigestion then wait until it leaves before you drink this serving.
2 hours later Drink last serving of salt water. 2 hours later Drink apple juice or other fruit juice.
1/2 hour later Eat some fruit. 1 hour later Eat a light meal.
Hopefully some time during the day after the cleanse you will get diarrhea. When you do, look in the toilet for the gallstones or sludge. The stones will float if they contain much cholesterol. Most people will feel a bit sickly for a couple days afterwards so you'll need to plan to take it easy. You can repeat this flush every 2 weeks until you no longer see stones in the toilet. Everyone should do this twice a year following the initial series of flushings.
Recommendations for CFIDS people
Take the following supplements (even during device usage). Don't use a multi-vitamin.
Vit C 500mg 2x daily (or Megafood 250mg 1x daily)
Vit B Complex 25mg 2x daily with first two meals
Vit E 200-400IU 2x daily
Acidophilus Calcium(chelated) 1000mg 1-2 hrs before bed
Seed Oil caps of Black Currant or Flax
L-Carnitine 500mg each meal
Multi-mineral with trace minerals
Zinc (chelated) 25mg daily with breakfast
Magnesium Malate 152mg 3x daily or
Magnesium Orotate 400mg with brkfst
After finishing Black Box usage take Echinacea Extract 15 drops 3x daily to purify the lymph fluid. Also take Panax Ginseng to stimulate metabolism (if you aren't hypoglycemic), and 30mg daily CoQ10 for energy, and Beta Carotene 10,000IU daily (25,000IU for smokers).
If you still have a lot of fatigue after device usage then you might consider getting tested for presence of excess heavy metals in your body. Analytical Research Labs can do a laboratory hair analysis of your bodys levels of 13 major minerals and 6 heavy metals for $55. Just send payment plus 2 tbspn of hair (from the nape of your neck) in a plain paper container to ARL, 8650 N 22nd Ave, Phoenix AZ 85021. Included will be an interpretation of your mineral levels and supplement recommendations that can slowly correct imbalances. For an extra $25 they will include a personal diet plan for you based on the results. Subnormal ratios of sodium to magnesium and potassium to calcium definitely cause adrenal & thyroid underactivity. Research reveals that 40% of CFS people have heavy metal toxicity (primarily aluminum, lead, and mercury) and 77% of them show definite improvement by cleansing it out. Of course, metal dental fillings should be replaced by composites to keep from continuing to absorb mercury from them. Hal Huggins book "It's All In Your Head" tells the correct way for your dentist to do this to prevent getting a high mercury exposure during filling removal. To remove heavy metals you can take Chlorella and MSM (tablets or powder for 3-6 months), take 3-10gm daily of vit C which binds to heavy metals, and rebalance your mineral levels. Chemical toxicity can be cleansed out slowly by taking Blue Green Algae (from Klamath Lake) by Cell Tech or another good company.
You can test yourself for food allergies that can sap you of energy. Every morning before rolling out of bed or stretching much, feel your pulse by your adams apple and count it for 60 seconds. Then get up, rinse your mouth with water, and eat or drink something you normally take every week. Don't take a belly full of it. Don't bathe with hot water or do vigorous exercise. In 30-60 minutes recline for 5 minutes and then test your pulse again. If it's 6 or more beats per minute more than your morning pulse, this indicates a food allergy and you should avoid the food. The above technique tests only for immediate response allergies. Some allergies take 24 hours to manifest and do not affect the pulse. To test for these you need to add a new food or supplement every 3rd day. Notice how you feel and avoid anything that makes you feel worse.

Patent # 4683873 "Method and Device for treating living tissues and/or cells by means of pulsating electromagnetic fields" by Ruggero Cadossi and Donata Marazzi, 1987 Patent # 5091152 "Aparatus for electrically destroying targeted organisms in fluids" by Tim L. Thomas Sr., 1992
Patent # 4665898 "Malignancy treatment by pulsed magnetic field" by Jonathan L. Costa and Gunter A. Hofmann, 19
For killing the worms of visible size use Green (Hull) Black Walnut Tincture (explained in the Q&A section). Microscopic size parasites are called Protozoans. These infections are very common with CFIDS. Main symptoms are watery stools and abdominal crampy pains but some people show no symptoms despite infection. Kill them before doing blood electrification by taking Artemesia Forte. I think everyone should use these two products for a time every year to eliminate all possible parasites they may have acquired that year.
