Constant Complaints

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 chur
h 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

have been.

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

was weak.

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.
