Alice was a middle-aged woman who couldn't understand why she had
always felt tired, even when she was young. Her life had been this
way ever since she could remember. Most puzzling to her was why her
life was so Job-like. She did everything the proper way. Doing
things correctly was important to her, and fitted her Puritan
background. Alice supported all the right causes, did good works,
was active in a Unitarian church and bought all her food at the
healthfood store--and made sure it was organically grown.
But in spite of Alice's righteous living, her existence was a
treadmill of constant, minor complaints. She was constantly
exhausted, so much so she had difficulty getting up in the morning
and feared she might have chronic fatigue syndrome (whatever that
is). Alice suffered bouts of depression over thoughts like these,
and had many acute illnesses like colds that hung on interminably
and would not go away. She had a constant post-nasal drip. Though
she enjoyed life, her body was a millstone around her neck.
I've had a lot of clients exactly like Alice. Sometimes they
complain of headaches; sometimes constant yeast or bladder
infections. Whatever the complaints, the symptoms are rarely severe
enough to classify themselves as someone who is seriously ill, but
their symptoms rarely go away and they almost never feel good.
Medical doctors rarely find anything wrong with them, though they
will frequently prescribe an antibiotic to treat a somewhat constant
infection, or an antihistamine for sinus symptoms. Getting a new
prescription drug makes the complaint go away for a short time until
their resistance is lowered again and the very same complaint
returns. These people frequently depend on over the counter pills
and are routinely prescribed sleeping remedies and antidepressants.
If instead of this route they will but take my medicine they are
usually easy to fix and afterwards are amazed that it was all that
simple and that so much of their life has been less than it could
Alice had been through the medical doctor route. She had become
quite familiar with antibiotics for her colds and flu, and also took
synthetic thyroid hormone--the doctor had diagnosed her fatigue as
being caused by an underactive thyroid, which was partly correct--but
the thyroid medication didn't give her much more energy. Alice had
been supporting this medical doctor in grand style for over thirty
years but never obtained the relief she sought.
I put Alice through my usual two hour first-time-visit thorough
analysis. For two weeks before coming to see me she had saved tiny
samples of everything she ate, wrapped them in plastic film,
carefully labeled, and put them in the freezer. Along with these
food samples and a typed list of all these foods, she brought a big
box full of her condiments, herb teas, vitamins, spices,
prescription medications, over the counter drugs, oils, grains,
breads, crackers and small samples of her usual fresh vegetables and
fruits. Even her water. Her entire kitchen! By biokinesiology we
proceeded to test all of her foods for allergic reactions. I also
tested the integrity of her organs and glands and in the process,
got a detailed medical history and list of her complaints.
Alice had exhausted adrenals, and they probably had been that way
for thirty years. Her pancreas was now too weak to digest the
legumes that made up a large part of her vegetarian diet. She was
allergic to wheat, soy, and dairy products and had especially been
eating dairy in the mistaken notion that it was necessary to keep up
her protein intake. Really very typical. So many health food store
shoppers these days mistakenly believe that, because they are
vegetarian and do not eat meat, they especially need to boost their
protein intake with dairy and soy. Unfortunately, so many North
Americans are highly allergic to dairy and unfortunately, soy
products are as hard or harder to digest than cooked meats.
Alice was especially shocked to discover that she was allergic to
such foods as cabbage family vegetables, alfalfa sprouts and citrus.
Most people don't think that anyone could be allergic to something
as healthy as alfalfa sprouts. The doctor was right about one thing;
her thyroid was underperforming. He had not noticed that her heart
Medical doctors rarely discover an organ weakness until that organ
actually begins to catastrophically fail. A busy honest doctor will
usually tell the complaining patient there is nothing wrong with
them: go home, take two aspirin, accept the fact that your body is
not perfect and don't worry about it. A hungry doctor will be
delighted to perform countless lab tests, seeking any possible
reason for the complaint. This can go on as long as the patient has
money or as long as the insurance company will pay. They rarely find
anything "wrong" and the patient is far better off if the doctor
doesn't discover something "serious" to treat because their
treatment may carry with it consequences far more severe than the
complaint. For example, I have seen dozens of people whose lives
were virtually ruined after surgical treatment for chronic back
Biokinesiology is actually a far more sensitive system of analysis
than lab tests. It picks up weaknesses at a very early stage so
total organ failure can be prevented. Rarely will any of the organ
weaknesses I discover be confirmed by a medical doctor. First I put
Alice on a six week cleanse. She did one week on fresh, raw food;
one week on dilute carrot juice with some green leafy vegetables
juice too; one week on water fasting; and then she repeated the
series. After six weeks of detoxification, I gave Alice a life
extension megavitamin formula, discovered she could not handle the
acid form of vitamin C (that she had already been taking) and had
her start on protomorphogens to rebuild her weakened endocrine
system, her exhausted adrenals and weak pancreas. She also began
taking pancreatic enzymes when she ate vegetable protein. She was
put on a maintenance diet that eliminated foods she was allergic to;
the diet primarily consisted of whole grains, nuts, cooked and raw
vegetables, and raw fruits. On her maintenance diet Alice had a
profound resurgence of energy and rediscovered a sense of well-being
she had not known for decades. She began to feel like she had when
she was a child. Her constant sinus drip was gone. She was able to
stop taking synthetic thyroid hormones and instead, supported her
endocrine system with protomorphogens.
