The Entire MONTHLY ARCHIVES for OCTOBER 2010 are below this Simon and Garfunkel Song – an old favorite of mine—>
The greatest gift I have for the world regards what I know about the chemical correction of depression (using nutrients and other natural measures).
My knowledge in regard to how to properly treat depression from a chemical standpoint has been world leading since April 2000. Willy’s Baggies were based on this knowledge… and Willy’s Baggies gave back to this knowledge as well… they greatly simplified it in regard to its implementation (on others).
Essentially the following eight blogs END! the world’s search for the proper manner in which to chemically correct (cure) depression.
The eight blogs below mean that the proper chemical answer (cure) for depression has been found.
It has been found in its tablet and capsule version anyway (Willy’s Baggie idea). There needs to be a liquid (drinkable) version of this proper chemical answer developed as well. (I haven’t been able to explore this yet for one reason or another.)
The above paragraph does not mean that the juicing of raw organic non-allergic vegetables and non-allergic green shakes are excluded from being part of the proper chemical answer for depression as well. Juicing coupled with gut floral correction is a must in which to fully resolve a state of depression. And green shakes are very wise to consider as well.
I state the above despite how far the simple measures of (1) a properly formulated Willy’s Baggie and (2) a fiber purge taken prior to taking such a baggie may take some one in regard to the resolution of their symptoms of depression.
Although what I am saying in the eight links below may admittedly need editing, copy changes, broken links repaired, etc. this does not matter in regard to the next point that I am going to make…
The material below exposes the enormous hoax of the ENTIRE CLASS of antidepressant medications.
Big Pharma cannot stand to have the antidepressant class of medications exposed as a hoax. It would cost them dearly if it was… hundreds of billions perhaps. (Where does this leave me personally? I can guess.)
I admit that I am not the best writer. I admit that I use far too many quote marks when none are needed. I admit I am too wordy. I admit that my Nutrientscure WordPress site is an organizational mess. I admit that I smoke too many cigarettes. (I hope to quit fairly soon.) I ask that the world forgive me my errors, mistakes, and flaws, etc.
I ask that the world forgive me in regard to all of the above on the basis that the eight blogs below were written by me.
The fact that my main website is a mess merits an explanation perhaps. Please remember that (1) chronic homelessness, (2) the lack of a safe environment in which to work (write), (3) the lack of access to Willy’s baggies on a regular basis, and (4) hackers have all impaired my Internet efforts since June 2006 (when the first computer that I was using was hammered by drug industry funded hackers… the first of many since then).
Working off the concepts and ideas in material below, and having an adequate knowledge in regard to hidden food allergy and other common malabsorptive causes, ANY competent research team in the world could blow the entire class of antidepressant medication out of the water… as far as the truth goes. (The catch here is “Who will stand up to Big Pharma?”, and suffer the certainty of their wrath.)
The following eight blogs have the power to help millions, if not the entire human race. In my mind, nothing else matters but this.
The following eight blogs are “must read” blogs for anyone interested in the proper chemical correction of depression.
Incidentally, I do pledge to correct and/or upgrade the following blogs and their links as soon as I am able to. (Admittedly, as buried as I am writing-wise this may take a while.)
It is wise to read the blogs listed below in the order presented.
1. Concepts and Ideas to Treat Depression Naturally (2003)
2. Willy’s Baggie II Shortcuts The Resolution of Depression
3. Depression and Bipolar Disorder – Cured At Last! (August 2007)

The following is straight from Dr. Jim Mercola using cut and paste to bring it into this blog.
This material can be found where I got it athttp://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2010/10/26/drug-companies-win-big-and-eliminate-medical-herbs-from-europe.aspx.
The source for the material that Jim Mercola drew on to write the article that he did can be found here:
I should perhaps mention that Dr. Mercola has done a great job on the Internet in regard to getting the word out on a number of alternative medical topics. However, in a few regards the knowledge of Dr. Mercola is sorely lacking. One area it is lacking in is in regard to the therapeutic potential, and the proper use, of nutritional and natural supplements. (Any one that ignores that therapeutic potential of a Willy’s Baggie like approach for a number of illnesses is either uninformed or wrong in their opinion in regard to what supplements can actually do (to heal). Another area Dr. Mercola’s knowledge is lacking is in regard to “what is the proper chemical correction of mental health issues?”, to include depression.
I have been saying for years that Big Pharma’s intent is to bribe lawmakers worldwide such that competitive nutritional supplements and herbal products will be taken off the free market. The actions being taken in the above link from Gaia-health.com are strongly suggestive of the truth of this.
In the future either Big Pharma wins and the human race is doomed, or Big Pharma loses and the human race has a chance. If Big Pharma loses… hopefully all drug company CEO’s go to prison for life for this is where they belong. (The drug industry has been committing, and continues to commit, a crime against humanity. Surely this crime should not go unpunished.)
You Use Herbs and Supplements, You’ve Been Betrayed by Lawmakers. A HIGHLY URGENT Message…
Posted By Dr. Mercola | October 26 2010
In less than a year, virtually all medicinal herbs will be illegal in the European Union.
In their take-no-prisoners strategy to wipe out every penny of competition and gain complete control of the health of the people, Big Pharma and Agribusiness have scored a major win in Europe. Similar, potentially devastating battles are also underway in the U.S.
How can this be happening?
The secret weapon used by drug companies is trade law. According to Gaia Health:
“Rather than treating food and traditional medicines as human rights issues, they have been treated as trade issues. That makes the desires of large corporations the focus of food and herbal law, rather than the needs and desires of people.
It’s this twisting that has resulted in the FDA’s making outrageously absurd statements, such as claiming that Cheerios and walnuts quite literally become drugs simply because of health claims made for them.”
Gaia Health September 12, 2010
Dr. Mercola’s Comments:
Even though I generally believe many people take far too many supplements, and that supplements are a poor substitute for improving your diet, it is clear that some supplements are highly beneficial. And supplements in general are clearly safer “band-aids” when compared to expensive and potentially toxic drugs.
That said, in order for all of us to take responsibility for our own health, I believe we must never lose the right to choose and buy nutritional supplements.
Unfortunately, your health freedom is being encroached upon at this very moment.
The European Union stands poised to enact into law a directive that may have a devastating impact on Europeans’ freedom of choice in regard to supplements, and practitioners of ancient medical modalities such as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Ayurveda, may lose their ability to prescribe traditional herbal remedies.
And once the EU enacts this law, I can strongly assure you the United States will not be far behind.

If the reader wishes to read the balance of Dr. Mercola’s comments, they can be found where I got the above. I got the above athttp://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2010/10/26/drug-companies-win-big-and-eliminate-medical-herbs-from-europe.aspx.
This blog titled “Bob Beck, Sherry Rogers, Willy, and I” has been replaced by a significantly upgraded one.
The title of this new blog is “Seven Persons That Redefined Healing For The World (11-4-2010)”. It can be found at:
The following ten blogs represent a degree of truth that Big Pharma CAN NOT STAND UP TO and win.
These blogs will bury Big Pharma some day. It is perhaps only a matter of a little more time.
It is best to read the blogs below in the order that they are listed (unless you have read some of them already).
For the past sixteen years I have done my best to find better chemical answers for mental illness.
And I have found these better chemical answers for sure.
[Thank whatever God you may happen to believe in. Don’t thank me. I simply did what I had to do. Due to moral obligation I did not have much choice in this regard.]
In the ten blogs below, I have quite literally handed you Big Pharma’s head on a silver platter.
Some of you just don’t realize it yet, that’s all.
The ten blogs that bury Big Pharma (either directly, or indirectly by my martyrdom) are listed below:
1. A Clarification of What I Am Doing (10-28-2010)
2. Cambridge Who’s Who And A Synopsis Of My Situation (October 2010)
3. The Story Of Darman Mfg. Company (2010)
4. The Financial Trigger To Crush Big Pharma -Upgraded- (10-17-2010)
5. The Proper Chemical Answer For Depression Has Been Found 10-31-2010
6. Governmental vs. Alternative Medicine; It Is Time For Change (2010)
7. Suppression Of Great Truth Is The Norm It Seems
8. A Tribute to Bob Beck; A World Class Healer
The blog above closed with the four paragraphs reflected in the below:
Bob’s knowledge fits right in with Willy’s Baggie, the other things I know about supplementation outside of Willy’s Baggie, and what I know about detoxification, malabsorption, and the gut.
Big Pharma knows that I am “double the threat” that I was to them only a short week ago. I have sealed my fate with these people… I only hope I last another year or so, such that I have the time to “adequately give to the world what I know”.
As of this day, Friday May 21, 2010 it is known that ALL MENTAL ILLNESSES CAN BE READILY CURED VIA NATURAL MEANS, every single one.
Mr. Robert Beck, my hat is off to you. I felt honored to be in the presence of your greatness these past two nights. I love you dearly for what you did.
***End of blog insertion***
In the week following my widely cross posting the above blog to the Internet in late May 2010, I had what I believe were multiple attempts on my life.
[To explain the above: There were at least eight to ten attempts in about five day’s time to enter my apartment by knocking on the door or ringing the doorbell, thinking I would be stupid enough to open the door not knowing FOR SURE who was there. Some of these were at 3 am. and 4 am. in the morning. For those five days, I was extraordinarily and unusually popular. I even had a maintenance man that I did not call for knock on my door during this time. (I did not let him in, of course.) I have been here since March, and hardly anyone EVER knocks on my door unless this has been arranged by phone in advance. Couple this with the fact that in January I am 99.9% certain there was an attempt on my life five days after I met Kevin Trudeau personally (and others) at a health freedom event in New Jersey, and I think you get my drift in this regard.]

Our politicians need to be held accountable this November if at all possible in regard to whether they are for Big Pharma or our true health. At the very least, they should become informed of the above, with your personal opinion attached. Hopefully, this opinion of yours will boldly state “If you vote anti-supplement or pro Big Pharma in ANY way, I am voting AGAINST YOU in the next election… period”.

I have written or posted a number of blogs to this Nutrientscure WordPress site in October 2010.
I have also posted most of these blogs to a few dozen Yahoo (and other) Groups on the Internet.
In doing the above, I wanted to inform as many persons as I can of my plight, my knowledge, and my plans. The Yahoo Groups that I have posted to were one manner in which to efficiently and easily do this.
This particular blog concerns my explanation to all of these Yahoo Groups what I was doing in regard to posting the blogs that I did to these groups in October. It also explains what I intend to do in the near future.
I will be posting the following material to all of the Yahoo Groups (and other groups) that I have been heavily posting to this month. I will be doing so within the next hour.
Title: A Clarification of What I Am Doing (10-28-2010)
Perhaps the following information will help this group understand where I am coming from in regard to my rather heavy posting since October 12th.
This past month’s blogging and my spreading these blogs to many Yahoo groups on the Internet all had a purpose and a plan. This purpose and plan may not have been apparent to the groups that I was posting to. The material below should clarify this purpose and this plan for all that may read it.
On my website at http://nutrientscure.wordpress.com/ I state that soon I will be wrapping up my current blogging cycle, as the material I had intended to post this month is nearly complete.
In November I will be moving on to other tasks on my calendar. (These other tasks involve chasing after funding from both traditional business sources, and angelic philanthropic ones.)
I have known for years that the best way I could get my most important messages across to the world was via anecdotal video testimony from other persons. I simply did not have either a protective environment or the means to do this.
I now have an adequate protective environment as long as I keep my current apartment, or live in a similar one in the same building. I soon hope to have a few brave and willing volunteers that will do as I suggest and are willing to learn from me. I also soon hope to have an adequate amount of fiscal means to do what I intend to do.
I intend to post anecdotal video testimony from other persons in regard to the effectiveness of self-applied alternative medicine on the Internet for all to see. I intend to do this as soon as I can make it happen. (This will only be done with written and signed permission for me to do so from the people involved, of course.)
The video testimony that would help other persons the most in regard to understanding what I am saying involves the following:
1. How profoundly and how quickly a longstanding state of severe depression with suicidal ideation attached can be adequately chemically resolved via the use of a multi-stage natural therapy.
An adequate amount of video material in regard to this point #1 alone spells doom to Big Pharma. Only a handful of profound remissions from severe depression within a day or two via the use of natural means would be material that would almost certainly go viral on the Internet… or so I strongly believe. If this occurs, it would cost Big Pharma dearly.
I can readily generate these profound remissions given the means and enough brave and willing volunteers. It is this material (and my knowledge underlying it) that threatens drug-oriented medicine the most (by far).
My primary focus in the future is going to be in regard this point #1. Far more people suffer from depression than either bipolar disorder or schizophrenia.
Incidentally, I have known for over a decade that the antidepressant class of medications is Big Pharma’s Achilles Heel.
2. How profoundly and how quickly severe sleep issues can be adequately chemically resolved via nutritional supplements and other natural means.
3. How profoundly and how quickly bipolar disorder can be adequately chemically resolved via nutritional supplements and other natural means.
4. How profoundly and how quickly schizophrenia and schizoaffective disorder can be adequately chemically resolved via nutritional supplements and other natural means.
It is in the above direction that the bulk of my future efforts lie.
I want to complete items 1, 2, 3 and 4 over the next six to nine months or so and put this anecdotal testimony video material on YouTube and/or NaturalNewsTV for all to see (and to see for free).
I also want to develop and sell some educational DVD material as well, and do so for a very reasonable and affordable cost. (I expect prices for various DVD’s that I make to be in the $20 to $30 range plus shipping, depending. As a matter of principle, I refuse to charge any more.)
I have to go through a funding cycle first to do the above. However, I see no major difficulties here as a result of my background in business management. All I need is some more time in which to make a case for such (complete a business plan).
Regarding hopeful future collaboration
When I finish up in NY within the next six months to a year or so, I am thinking of trying to join a collaborative effort, rather than continue to fight this fight alone.
I would love to be doing what I am doing in regard to teaching other persons how to cure themselves (become their own effective doctors of themselves) at a place like Soteria House in Alaska some day (assuming Jim Gottenstein and Company will have me and we can come to agreeable terms).
Regarding Big Pharma and My Life
I know so much about the true chemistry of mental illness that I can crush Big Pharma’s myriad of lies in a very big way… and I can do so on a rather immediate basis once I have what I need to do so (the means and the volunteers).
What I know threatens hundreds of billions of dollars of aggregate drug industry stock value lost within a matter of months if the truths that I know get out in the public domain.
This is how enormous a place I find myself in.
I am likely to be quite famous or very dead at the hands of Big Pharma (or both) in the months and years to come.
Incidentally, I have NEVER sought fame for my efforts, nor do I want it or seek it now. (I seek watching a beautiful sunset while sitting on a warm ocean beach, and having some good female company beside me. This means far more to me than fame ever could.)
The drug industry, or a good portion of it, and I have a solid realization of the veracity of all of the above.
This is why some party most probably paid for by the drug industry has tried to kill me twice in 2010. And it is why these attempts have no end in sight. My knowledge is too much of a threat to drug-oriented medicine for such attempts to ever end.
As of this month, when I released some information in regard to my capabilities in a business environment, and I essentially showed Big Pharma my entire poker hand, I feel that I am a dead man from this point forward if the bad guys ever catch me alone and unaware. (I do know how to be VERY careful. I am going to do my best for the rest of my life to avoid giving any person or party an easy opportunity in this regard.)
I don’t mean to alarm others in regard to the attempts on my life. I am a strong and capable man. I can handle this stuff. I am simply a man that is at war with the drug industry and its myriad of lies. In reporting any particular attempt on my life, I am honestly reporting to the world what I believe is another one of the drug industry’s desperate effort(s) to silence me.
I sincerely hope that I survive at least another year or two. (This should be more than enough time for me to complete what I intend to do, such that the message that I have for the world is not lost.) Do not mistake my desires in this regard. I deeply value my life, and it is my full intent to live as long as I can (decades, if at all humanly possible).
I am doing my best with very little means, and very little collaborative or psychological support. I am doing what I am doing out of heartfelt moral obligation to do so. I have no self-seeking agenda in all of this.
I am a man who listens to Yahoo (and other Internet) group conversation as much as I can find the time. Fairly soon some of the Yahoo groups that I have posting to will be seeing me find the time to listen to what is being said, to reply, and to ask questions of others and the group as a whole as well. (There is a gold mine of collective wisdom in Yahoo groups and other groups on the Internet. I fully intend on utilizing this fact soon.)
Perhaps by Thanksgiving or so my schedule will free up such that I can participate more in some Yahoo groups, rather than simply post blogs to them.
I deeply appreciate any constructive feedback, insight, collaboration, or wise advice that any person can give me, either currently or in the months to come. My email address for reminder purposes (in case I miss any post directed at me in a group in which the person strongly desires a reply) is firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am in full admission of the fact that I need the help of other persons, persons either the same or similar to the many good persons in this group. I cannot do what I intend to do alone.
Whatever happens between Big Pharma and I in the months and years to come, I accept the outcome. I accept this outcome without complaint… for I know I did what my conscience told me to do at all times… and I know I did my best.

This blog is coming when I can get to it. I am buried writing-wise at the moment. Getting to this blog may take me quite some time.
This blog is a fairly easy blog to write due to the fact that the five fundamentals to gain, retain, or recover human health are identical in their nature to those listed in the five point cardinal rule to chemically correct mental illness. (These five points to correct mental illness were covered in a blog that I wrote a few days ago.)
My blogging has been fairly heavy of late (since October 12, 2010). This blogging had a solid intent and general direction to it when it was begun.
The primary goal that I have had in the blogs that I have written in the past fifteen days or so is to give persons a solid idea of where I am coming from at the present time if and/or when they come to my Nutrientscure WordPress site.
Following this blog will be two more blogs to wrap up this particular blogging cycle.
One blog will concern more thoughts and ideas in regard to developing Healing House educational DVD product(s).
The other blog will be an organizing blog in regard to the blogs that I have written since October 12, 2010.
***THIS BLOG IS STILL UNDER CONSTRUCTION. IT IS NOT YET EDITED, FINALIZED, OR COMPLETE. THIS REMARK WILL BE REMOVED WHEN THIS BLOG IS DONE. Allen***
For those of you that are not familiar, Willy’s Baggie means “an adequate dose of balanced broad based nutrition covering the entire essential nutrient range in supplement form, to include an adequate therapeutic dose of balanced free form amino acids, as well as a number of helpful or necessary nutrient or supplement co-factors”. [List current version of Willy’s Baggie blog link here.]
Early in my recovery from over thirty years of bipolar symptoms, I realized from taking a wide range of nutritional supplements that almost all of them were helping me. I could quite literally “feel the help” that these supplements provided me, whether they were vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, or amino acids. And in the case of taking free form amino acids, often “the feel of this help” was both fairly immediate and quite obvious.
In the beginning of my recovery, I wondered why so many different supplements were clearly helping me. And I wondered why was I deficient in so many essential nutrients (such that my condition of manic depression was the end result).
I knew that many of the foods that I ate in my life came from depleted topsoils. I knew that many of the foods that I ate in my life were processed. And I knew that many of the foods that I ate in my life were cooked as well. From the reading that I did in the fall of 1997, and reading that I had done decades prior, I knew that (1) depleted topsoils, (2) the modern processing of foodstuffs, and (3) the cooking of food all contribute to essential nutrient depletion in foods (that are ultimately eaten).
However, it soon became clear to me that depleted topsoils, processed food, and cooked food were not the only three reasons I was broadly essential nutrient deficient.
In the fall of 1997, it became clear to me that the largest reason that I was broadly nutrient deficient was that I was clearly not absorbing nutrients well. At this time, I made a guess that I was seriously malabsorptive. Within a month of making this guess, I knew it was the truth.
By the end of 1997, I knew that bipolar disorder was not a mental illness at all. It was simply a sub-clinical malabsorptive syndrome that impaired the health and well being of every single organ (and cell) in my body; to include my brain, my thyroid gland, my adrenal glands, my liver, my pancreas, and all the rest.
Often eating a well balanced diet is not enough to either retain or regain health. This is especially true is you are malabsorptive. For it is not what you eat, it is what you digest, and then absorb into your body, that counts as far as one’s health, or one’s health recovery, is concerned.
I admittedly learned a great deal about malabsorption from a number of alternative medical authors. Sherry Rogers, M.D. (http://prestigepublishing.com/) is worthy of special mention in this regard. Dr. Rogers taught me so much. One of the things that she taught me is that orally supplementing with nutritional supplements, without addressing a probable malabsorptive status at the same time, is “just not wise”, as much of the nutritional value of such supplementation can be lost.
Therefore, anyone that uses a Willy’s Baggie approach to heal should eventually take the time to learn about what is reflected in the material below. This is true even if a Willy’s Baggie supplement approach significantly helps someone out of a state of depression on the very first day it is utilized, despite using a fiber purge as the only gut corrective measure.
More On Malabsorption
Nutrients taken in an oral fashion, such as Willy’s Baggie represents, may not adequately arrive into the body. These nutrients may simply get pooped into the toilet a day or two later.
Any malabsorptive factor which impairs the digestion or absorption of essential nutrition can negate, or at least partially negate, using a Willy’s Baggie approach in which to heal.
One cannot absorb nutrients well if a serious degree of malabsorption is present.
The Three Cardinal Rules Regarding Correcting Malabsorption are as follows:
(1) All common malabsorptive factors are adequately correctable in anyone that has them, once they are identified.
(2) All common malabsorptive factors are identifiable and correctable at home, if not better identified and corrected at home, vs. one’s relying on the office services of any doctor whatsoever, whether they are alternative or not.
(3) The best approach for most persons to correct any degree of malabsorption that may affect them is “to learn whatever they have to learn such that they can become effective doctors of themselves”.
Effectively treating broad essential nutrient deficiency as a result of malabsorption involves six general steps:
(1) Go though the list of eighteen common malabsorptive factors in the material below. As soon as it is practical or possible to do so, determine which ones apply to you.
The above step admittedly can take some time. It took me years to do so. However, if one is properly taught, much of this step can be achieved within a few weeks. (The notable exception here is determining one’s hidden food allergies. These can be tricky to identify, and doing so often takes quite a bit of time.)
(2) If a common malabsorptive factor does apply to you, correct for it properly in one way or another.
All common malabsorptive factors are adequately correctable in any person that may have them. (We are definitely not dealing with the incurable here.)
(3) Take a properly formulated Willy’s Baggie as a replacement for breakfast every single day.
If expense is a major consideration for you, rather than take a Willy’s Baggie every day, take one every other day. (Willy’s recovery primarily used “baggies taken every other day”, with some supplementation taken on the days in between, to reduce cost. I often do the same as Willy in this regard. And I often go much longer between baggies, due to my poor fiscal circumstances.)
(4) Every person that is broadly essential nutrient deficient should be drinking raw vegetable juice on “a more than once daily basis” made from raw organic non-allergic healing vegetables as soon as it is juiced (within fifteen minutes or so).
I realize that this is not an ideal world, and that the above rarely happens. However, I would like to shout from the rooftops that “I cannot recommend juicing enough”.
(5) Cooked meal supplementation: Use whatever digestive aids are necessary (HCL, digestive enzymes, etc.) at every meal. Also adequately supplement with at least the supplements of vitamin B complex and vitamin C at every cooked meal as well.
In addition to the above, it is wise to consider the using a safe amount of a multivitamin multi-mineral preparation at every cooked meal as well. (Nutrients work in synergy with each other. Ideally, every meal that is ingested by a person that is clearly broadly nutrient deficient should have the entire essential nutrient range in it.)
(6) Some persons are heavily deficient in the bulk minerals that the body needs, such as calcium, magnesium, zinc, or potassium. (Sodium is also a bulk mineral the body needs, but it is normally in excess in most Americans. Calcium is also in excess in many persons as well.)
Some of these bulk mineral deficiencies may need to be dealt with separately in addition to points 1 – 5 above in order to fully correct essential nutrient deficiency as a result of longstanding malabsorption. All of this is commonly known in alternative medicine. I leave the details of this sixth point to those that are more familiar with such. (Information such as this is easily found on the Internet.)
The Eighteen Common Factors Underlying Malabsorption
Thankfully, alternative medicine has done a fairly good job over the years in regard to identifying the common malabsorptive issues that affect us human beings.
For those persons not familiar with the common malabsorptive issues that cause a lack of mental or physical health, the following represents a fairly comprehensive list:
(1) Unrecognized, and often multiple, hidden food allergies.
(2) A yeast condition called candida or candidiasis.
(3) Other intestinal dysbiosis issue besides candida, such as having “bad bacteria”, or parasites, in one’s GI tract.
(4) A gut which is leaky, a condition known as “leaky gut”. (This is often related to points 1, 2, and 3 in the above.)
(5) A gut which is inflamed. (This is often related to points 1, 2, and 3 in the above.)
(6) A gut that exhibits an excessive secretion of mucous. (This is often related to points 1, 2, and 3 in the above.)
(7) An inadequate amount of good gut flora known as probiotics. (This is often related to points 1, 2, and 3 in the above.)
(8) An inadequate amount of prebiotics from raw food or supplements. (This is often related to points 1, 2, and 3 in the above.)
(9) An inadequate production of digestive enzymes. (This is often related to points 1, 2, and 3 in the above.)
(10) An inadequate production of stomach acid.
(11) An inadequate production of bile, or restricted bile flow due to gall and/or liver stones.
(12) Inadequate chewing, which impairs the digestion and assimilation of nutrients.
(13) The possibility of inadequate glutamine status in the small intestines. (Glutamine is a key nutrient for the villi of the small intestines, where roughly 85% of nutrient absorption should take place. A lack of glutamine in the small intestines can can result in shorter villi, and thus less surface area available in which nutrients can be absorbed. Exposure to hidden food allergens, especially the gluten grains, can also shorten intestinal villi as well.)
(14) The possibility of low essential nutrient status. (The lack of almost any essential nutrient can impair digestion or absorption in some way. Some nutrients are more important than others in this regard. Zinc deserves to be mentioned here, but then again, so do many others. Impaired digestion breeds a more serious degree of impaired digestion. And nutrient deficiency breeds greater nutrient deficiency. These are all facts that modern medicine continues to ignore. )
(15) Inadequate hydration, or poorly timed hydration. (An adequate amount of water is needed to absorb nutrients well. However, most of the water a human being needs should not be taken in during mealtimes. Doing so dilutes stomach acidity, and therefore impairs proper digestion.)
(16) Poor food combining, which stresses the digestive process, and can greatly burden the entire GI tract.
(17) The ingestion of too many “bad fats”, or the ingestion of “too much fat at once, such that much of this fat is undigested”. (As a concrete example here, fast food french fries represent “a big dose of bad fats”. Eating a large order of these french fries can significantly impair ones ability to absorb nutrients for days. This I know for a fact from years of experience using free form amino acids, etc.)
(18) An inadequate amount of movement such as walking. (We humans were made to walk. Doing so is important, if not critical, to proper intestinal function.)
How Willy’s Baggies Can Help A Person To Deal With This Critical Issue Of Malabsorption
Malabsorption is not an all or nothing equation. A person’s GI tract (gut) can absorb nutrients from the food that he or she takes in at a 25% rate, a 50% rate, a 75% rate, and everything in between. (Obviously these numbers are not exact. I am making a conceptual point there.)
Gut function in regard to its ability to absorb nutrients, can vary. It can, and often does, vary widely in its absorptive status from day to day, week to week, and month to month, depending.
The gut is the most dynamic organ in your body. By “dynamic”, I mean readily changeable, both for the better and for the worse.
The regular use of a Willy’s Baggie with a fifteen to twenty five gram loading of balanced and broad based free form amino acids taken on a daily basis can greatly help a person to determine whether, when, and by roughly how much they are malabsorptive.
The reason that baggies can greatly help a person determine if they are malabsorptive is that there is enough powerful nutrition in a baggie for the average person to definitely feel its positive effect on their mood, and their ability to function, all day long, assuming it is absorbed well.
If one does not feel a powerful positive effect from taking properly formulated baggies in an adequate amino acid loading for his or her needs, the number one suspect should be “malabsorption”.
To explain the above a bit more:
There is enough powerful nutrition for an average person to function well on a baggie all day long, assuming that an adequate amount of non-allergic calories are taken in later that day as well.
The essential nutrition in baggies that is missing the most is enough glucose to adequately fuel the body and brain for an entire day. Glucose is sugar. However, I am not suggesting that one eat sugar, by any means. Doing such is clearly counterproductive to human health. Starch converts to sugar. Starch is what should be eaten later in the day in order to fill in the key nutritive need that a baggie lacks.
For example, if a person takes a baggie with a twenty five gram free form amino acid loading as a “breakfast replacement meal” (which I recommend), and then only eats a plain bowl of rice for lunch and dinner to fill in their caloric requirement for energy, they should still feel fine and be able to function well day after day. (This assumes that the person in question is not allergic to rice. It also assumes that this same person is not doing heavy manual labor all day, such that twenty five grams of protein is simply not enough to meet protein need.)
Let us say we are dealing with another person than the one above. Let us say that this particular person suffers from depression.
A depressed person should be readily able to tell the difference in how they feel, and how well they are able to function, when they are taking baggies. This statement should apply to every single day that he or she takes them.
Let us say that this depressed person takes a baggie on day one, two, and three, and he or she feels much better all three of these days from taking these baggies.
Then this same person takes a baggie on day four, and does not feel that good (still feels somewhat depressed despite taking the same baggie that helped him or her the day before).
In all likelihood what happened here is that this person was over-exposed to a food (or foods) that they were allergic to on day three. This allergic food exposure resulted in a temporary reduction in one’s ability to absorb nutrients, until it cleared out.
Incidentally, fiber definitely helps in regard to clearing out allergic food exposure. Clearing out allergic food exposure with fiber is what I term a “fiber purge”. The phrase “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” is an expression of the wisdom of a fiber purge being taken on a daily basis. (This is a wise health choice for many.)
Ask Willy about fiber. The use of a fiber purge of one sort or another after eating allergic food has greatly helped Willy for years. (This same applies to me.)
To be continued………………….
Anyone using Willy’s Baggies should become familiar with (1) identifying, and (2) correcting all common malabsorptive issues in his or her self. (This can be be adequately taught to a teenager, as my son Willy proved.)
Please remember that using Willy’s Baggie is not a stand-alone measure. Other things besides the use of Willy’s Baggie should be learned about, and should be done, for persons to heal from whatever serious mental or degenerative illness that they may suffer from.
Of these “other things” that should be learned about, and should be done, for persons to heal from whatever illness they may suffer from, “the most important thing” for one to learn about is this issue of “malabsorption”.
Over the years I have come to the realization that chronic depression, ADHD, and bipolar disorder are not the only unrecognized malabsorptive syndromes that are being treated with “drugs and only drugs”, simply for the sake of the money being made.
I have also come to the realization that almost every kind and case of mental illness has a serious degree of malabsorption underlying it.
In addition to this, I have come to the realization that any serious difficulty with sleep has a serious degree of malabsorption underlying it. (This is reflected in material I wrote in 2005, titled “An egroup post I wrote in 2005 on sleep”. Seehttp://nutrientscure.wordpress.com/2009/07/13/an-egroup-post-i-wrote-in-2005-on-sleep/)
Over the years, and despite having no personal experience in correcting such, I have also come to the realization that most, if not almost all, degenerative illnesses have a malabsorptive component to them as well.
Universal to the human species, simply getting significantly older (as in going from forty to sixty) comes with a serious degree of malabsorption attached, unless such is recognized, and then corrected.
The use of a Willy’s Baggie healing approach can do a great deal in regard to correcting human health. Willy’s Baggie can also do a great deal in regard to a person being able to both recognize and correct a serious degree of malabsorption in his or her self. To achieve optimal healing results, it is “a must” for anyone considering the use of Willy’s Baggies to deal with ANY and EVERY malabsorptive cause that they may suffer from.
In regard to what I am trying to do in regard to awakening the world that depression and mental illness are curable in a five step fashion using natural or non-drug means, there is a rather large coincidence.
This particular coincidence may spell doom for Big Pharma.
Please let me explain all of this.
The coincidence I am speaking of concerns the fact that “The Five Fundamental Rules To Correct All Mental Illness” is identical in its five points to another blog that I am going to write.
This other blog will be titled “The Five Fundamental Rules to Gain, Retain, or Recover Human Health”.
The Big Coincidence here is that “The list of five fundamental rules in the two above mentioned blogs IS IDENTICAL.
It so turns out that the human body and the human brain are connected after all. (As Margot Kidder said in a speech that I heard her give years ago, “There is no steel plate separating my head and my brain from the rest of my body. My brain and my body are connected”.)
In learning (from others, to include my son Willy) and in discovering what I did to cure mental illness, I apparently accidentally discovered how to cure, or greatly help from a health standpoint, a lot of other things as well.
The Five Fundamental Rules to Gain, Retain, or Recover Human Health are applicable to the health, well-being, and longevity of every person on this planet. (This is why there have been two apparent attempts on my life in 2010.)
Incidentally, these Five Fundamental Rules are fundamental rules that should ALWAYS be addressed if anti-aging is your goal. Human growth hormone (or other measures) might be good as an adjunct(s), but one must never forget the five fundamental rules if you wish to live as long and healthy a life as possible. (Aging and a declining essential nutrient status are synonymous, unless one actively intervenes. And the latter begets the former in a rather big way.)
The similarity between The Five Fundamental Rules To Correct All Mental Illness and The Five Fundamental Rules to Gain, Retain, or Recover Human Health is a coincidence that may spell doom for Big Pharma.
This coincidence means that we are all in the same boat, both the mentally ill and the fiscally well-endowed alike.
What is this boat?
The fiscally well-endowed, who can both easily afford and would greatly benefit from what I am saying in regard to Willy’s Baggies, the Fundamental Rules, etc. may soon lose the option of choice in regard to these nutritional and natural healing measures. These nutritional and natural healing measures should and could greatly benefit almost EVERYONE’S health and longevity. (These nutritional and natural healing measures hold the promise of often adding decades of health to both body and brain life.)
The fiscally well-endowed WILL LOSE the above-mentioned health options if Big Pharma, Big Medicine (the doctors), and Big Healthcare have their way in Congress within the next year or two.
As a result of the Supreme Court ruling this past winter allowing corporations to flood the federal elective process with money (proof of this happening exists already in regard to the upcoming November election) it should be apparent to the general public that we are undergoing a rather obvious corporate takeover of our government.
Big Pharma’s strong corporate agenda is to take all, or at least some key (critical), healing supplements out of the general public’s hands. (Their very future as an industry is at stake.)
Don’t believe me on this? Well, Big Pharma, via their heavy handed influence within the FDA, already tried to deny the general public access to almost every single supplement in existence in 2007. (This is a matter of public record.) The following link is one example of the proof of this:
Health freedom action alert: FDA attempting to regulate supplements, herbs and juices as “drugs” [by Mike Adams, April 11, 2007]
The above link involves only one of a number of instances of anti-supplement legal motion on the federal level within the past five years. Anti-supplement regulation is being put before Congress more frequently with every passing year it seems.
It appears to be a fortuitous coincidence that the discovery of how to cure mental illness happens to be the same discovery in regard to gaining, retaining, and recovering human health. The truth of this should doom Big Pharma some day (unless this industry can protect itself by changing Federal law).
However, God help us all if nutritional supplements and other natural measures are not proven to be powerfully therapeutic and soon. If they are not proven to be so, these powerful nutritional and natural healing methods are going to be taken away from us by force of law.
Powerful nutritional and natural healing methods are going to be taken away from us as soon as enough corporate money floods the elective process such that Big Pharma (and other related industries with a similar self-interest to Big Pharma) can buy the passage of restrictive supplement (and other natural healing measure) laws. (Sadly, in our supposedly democratic society it seems that corporations are writing our laws.)
Once these nutritional and natural measures are taken away from the general public it is going to be hard to get them back again.
I pray that I soon find the collaborative means needed to show that antidepressants do not stand a chance versus the healing power of a Willy’s Baggie approach coupled with a little common sense.
In my opinion anyone over forty years old that has a net worth of over a million dollars is a fool to not be using a Willy’s Baggie like supplement approach and implementing the Five Fundamental Health Rules on his or her self. Or perhaps such people are not fools, as I have stated. Perhaps such people are simply unaware of these important alternative medical discoveries in regard to their broad health (mental AND physical health), longevity, and maximum-performance implications.
Hopefully this blog will make many of the influential and the wealthy aware of what is going on in the healing arena. As powerful as Big Pharma is in regard to influencing the course of law to enforce its lies, support from the influential and the wealthy is necessary in order to stop Big Pharma from negatively changing the law in time.

There are Five Fundamental Rules To Chemically Correct All Mental Illnesses. This includes illnesses with names such as depression, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.
The Five Fundamental Rules To Chemically Correct Mental Illness applies to more than those three illnesses mentioned above. They apply to almost every single diagnosis in psychiatric medicine, if not every single one.
In regard to depression, these five fundamental rules apply even if a particular case of depression seems to have a psychological stress trigger (or triggers) as its primary causative factor(s). Priscilla Slagle, M.D. first taught me this in her book “The Way Up From Down”. My experiences over the past thirteen years have repeatedly validated what Dr. Slagle taught me in this regard.
The chemical correction of mental illness SHOULD ALWAYS INVOLVE correction in regard to the following FIVE chemical issues:
(1) Identify And Correct Any And All Commonly Known Malabsorptive Causes.
Malabsorption causes broad essential nutrient deficiencies.
There are a number of common causes of malabsorption.
All of the common causes of malabsorption are both Identifiable and Correctable in any person that may have them.
Broad essential nutrient deficiency and mental illness are synonymous.
Malabsorption and mental illness are synonymous as well.
(2) Correct One’s Functional Nutrient Status.
At least at one point during the day one should take the entire nutrient range all at once.
A pioneer nutritionist named Adelle Davis postulated that this was the correct healing approach over forty years ago.
Over the past four years Willy’s Baggie idea has solidly proved in an anecdotal manner that Adelle Davis was right.
(3) Minimize One’s Toxic Load.
This rule especially applies to GI tract (“gut”) generated toxins. It also applies to one’s preexisting toxic load, and to environmental toxins as well.
A strong argument can be made that antibiotics cause a high degree of toxicity in hundreds of millions of persons. Antibiotics do this by killing off good bacteria in the gut.
When someone’s good gut bacteria dies off as a result of taking antibiotics, a whole host of bad biology can (and almost always does) proliferate in the gut. This bad gut biology can produce a high toxic load day after day for decades until one’s gut biology is corrected.
(4) Minimize One’s Allergic Load.
This rule especially applies to food allergens, and hidden food allergens. It also applies to environmental allergens as well.
It is going to be interesting in the years to come how much GMO crops contribute to hidden food allergies.
It is almost as this stuff is being planned behind the scenes by people that think they can use sneaky means such as GMO foods, processed foods, antibiotics, vaccines, etc. to make an entire populace sick, and then enrich themselves from this.
(5) Minimize One’s Bad Biological Load.
Bad biology in the body includes bad bacteria, yeasts, molds, fungi, parasites, and/or viruses.
The worst way to address point number five on yourself is to see a conventional drug-oriented doctor. Self-applied alternative medicine is the best way to perform this step.
You Can Cure Yourself
All of the five fundamental issues listed above can be learned about, and then corrected, at home without needing the services of any doctor whatsoever.
Yes, you can cure yourself!
Some persons assume that the above five fundamental rules to correct mental illness are either too difficult or too complex for a person in their teen years to “self-correct”. All I have to say to these persons is that my teenage son Willy proved that these two assumptions are incorrect.
The Five Fundamental Rules To Chemically Correct All Mental Illnesses are now known.
For all ostensible purposes, there are no exceptions to the Five Fundamental Rules To Chemically Correct Mental Illness.
The five fundamental rules of chemical correction outlined above cure mental illness from a chemical standpoint, no matter what the diagnostic label involved.
The only significant “catch” to the Five Fundamental Rules are that they need to be applied by You to Yourself.
Any chemical approach to a case of depression, or a case of mental illness, that does not address ALL OF THE ABOVE five chemical issues is hereby obsolete.
Any chemical approach to depression, or to a case of mental illness, that is proper and correct involves NO DRUG WHATSOEVER.
The Use Of Drugs To Correct Mental Illness Is Obsolete.
Drugs should only be considered temporary chemical band-aids at best. Chronic long term drug use to correct the flawed nutrient/toxic/allergic/biological issues inherent in all mental illnesses is clearly the wrong approach.
Some Simple Logic Against Drugs
The five fundamental chemical issues that cause mental illness are (1) broad essential nutrient deficiency, (2) excessive toxic load, (3) excessive allergic load, (4) multiple bad biology issues, and (5) a serious degree of malabsorption.
No drug or combination of drugs can cure (1) broad essential nutrient deficiency, (2) excessive toxic load, (3) excessive allergic load, (4) multiple bad biology issues, and (5) a serious degree of malabsorption.
Therefore no drug or combination of drugs can cure mental illness.
Only You! can cure broad essential nutrient deficiency, excessive toxic load, excessive allergic load, bad biology issues, and malabsorption in yourself.
Therefore only You! can truly cure yourself of mental illness (once you learn what you need to do so).
The use of any drug (or combination of drugs) whatsoever to cure mental illness is nuts!
Drug-oriented medicine’s methodology to cure ANY illness will inevitably be found out for what it truly is… it is the biggest hoax in history.
It is not just drugs for mental illness that are a lie. ALL toxic man made drugs are a lie as far as healing goes. Cholesterol drugs are a lie, high blood pressure drugs are a lie, sleep drugs are a lie, acid reflux drugs are a lie, arthritis drugs are a lie, antibiotics are a lie, etc., etc. (This list goes on and on.)
Big Pharma, via bribery of Federal and State lawmakers, is enforcing fraudulent healing methodology on a brainwashed (via TV ads, TV shows, print media ads, etc.) and/or unaware public.
In doing so, Big Pharma has stripped the health and wealth of America, to the point that the United States is on the verge of economic collapse.
Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaeda did not bring America down. History will inevitably state that “Big Pharma, other corrupt corporate entities, and our corrupt politicians did”.

As I stated in a prior blog, I consider any blog that I have written and posted to the Internet on or since the day “A Tribute to Bob Beck; A World Class Healer” was written on May 21, 2010 to be the “second generation” of my knowledge and my written work.
What Bob Beck did for me, in addition to what I knew of Jim Humble’s work with MMS, was to fill in the key missing piece in my quest to cure mental illness as a whole.
When I became aware of Bob Beck in May 2010, I had already acquired a great deal of knowledge in regard to the other factors that must be addressed in order to fully correct an illness such as bipolar disorder or schizophrenia.
Prior to my becoming aware of Bob Beck, I knew that “inadequate functional nutrient status” was a MAJOR causative factor in regard to the symptoms of mental illness. I also knew that when coupled together (1) Willy’s Baggie idea, (2) what the Truehope people know, (3) the juicing of non-allergic raw organic vegetables, (4) non-allergic superfood shakes with fresh pineapple or other fruits added, and (5) a healthy non-allergic nutrient dense diet taken with whatever digestive aids may be necessary (such digestive enzymes, HCL, or bile salts for those that need them) I had an answer for this problem of inadequate functional nutrient status. (It is my opinion that these five points represent the best coverage of this problematic issue of inadequate functional nutrient status that has ever been devised.)
Incidentally, in addition to my knowing of the above five measures to correct inadequate functional nutrient status, during the past four years I have learned that (1) Willy’s Baggie idea is a practical and reliable shortcut for many persons in which to stay above par in a chemical sense (even if the other four points listed above are ignored), such that no mental illness symptoms are apparent at all.
Prior to my becoming aware of Bob Beck, I knew in a solid and personal sense that multiple hidden food allergies, food insensitivities, and/or food intolerances were a MAJOR causative factor in regard to the symptoms of mental illness. I also knew that no food allergy laboratory testing methodology was accurate enough to well determine all of one’s problematic foods. (I knew from personal experience that a rare food cave man elimination diet was the best way to determine such.)
Prior to my becoming aware of Bob Beck, I knew in a solid and personal sense that flawed gut biology involving candida and other intestinal dysbiosis issues was a MAJOR causative factor in depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and a myriad of other mental illnesses. And I knew how to correct such in a practical sense in myself (and in a manner that was faster than any other person in the world that I am aware of).
Prior to my becoming aware of Bob Beck, I knew that one’s toxic load was a causative factor in mental illness. I knew that some toxins in the body had been “locked up and stored away” such that these toxins were not a major issue in regard to any mental illness symptoms I might suffer from at the time. I also knew that a good deal of toxic load was being generated on a daily basis in my gut by either (2) flawed gut biology or (2) rotting or fermenting undigested foods. And I knew it was this daily toxic release (coming from my own gut) that was the portion of my total toxic load that I had to be most concerned about, as far as my own mental illness symptoms were concerned.
Prior to my becoming aware of Bob Beck, I knew that malabsorption was a MAJOR causative factor in depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and other mental illnesses. As a result of my personally having a GI tract that had a strong tendency to be, or to become, malabsorptive, years of “trial and error” efforts, and a great deal of thought and reflection… I felt that I understood malabsorption and how to correct it in myself perhaps better than anyone else in the world. (I knew if I was not #1 in this regard, I had to be close to being #1.)
Prior to my becoming aware of Bob Beck, I knew that “after the water was taken out” there were two remaining distinct pools of chemistry in the body that were wise to consider as “separate and apart from each other” as far as the correction of mental illness symptoms was concerned.
One pool of chemistry I called the “fixed” or “static” pool. This pool static pool of chemistry represents WELL OVER 99.9% of the chemistry in the body dry weight (after the water was taken out).
The other pool I called the “dynamic” or “fluid” pool. This fluid pool of chemistry is much less than one tenth of one percent (less than 0.1%) of the entire chemistry of the body dry weight (after the water was taken out).
Some of this fluid pool of chemistry is composed of the readily available nutrient chemistry that enzymes, hormones, and neurotransmitters are made out of every single hour and every single day. Some of this fluid pool of chemistry is composed of free toxic molecules (or free allergen molecules) that have yet to be either deactivated, “locked up”, or excreted by some detoxifying process.
Prior to my becoming aware of Bob Beck, I solidly knew from much personal experience that to correct mental illness symptoms in myself, I only needed to correct my “fluid pool” of chemistry (which was less than one tenth of one percent of the overall chemistry in my body “dry weight”).
To correct this “fluid pool” of chemistry, I needed to (1) increase its functional nutrient status, (2) decrease the presence of toxins in it, and whatever this entails (such as to correct the underlying bad biology in my gut which is often a major source of toxic generation in myself), and (3) decrease the presence of allergens in my fluid pool (for me, this primarily means the avoidance of food allergens, as I have few environmental allergies that I am aware of.)
Prior to my becoming aware of Bob Beck, I had learned that correcting my fluid pool of chemistry was the cornerstone of correcting any and all mental illness symptoms in myself. (I also learned that Willy’s Baggie idea was a heck of a shortcut in this regard if only even a fiber purge was used an hour or two prior to taking such a baggie.)
Prior to my becoming aware of Bob Beck, I had learned how to become mood, mentally, and physically optimal at will, by taking proper care of my fluid pool. However, I also knew that for some other persons, what I was doing to become mood and mentally optimal at will was not enough for them. This was due to the fact that these persons had serious toxic-generating bad biology issues inside of themselves. And I did not have an answer for this.
What the above means is that prior to becoming aware of Bob Beck there was one single significant gap in regard my knowledge of how to correct the fluid pool of chemistry. This meant that there was one single significant gap in regard my knowledge of how to correct mental illness properly that I was aware of.
In August 1999, as a result of knowingly risking my life, I learned how profoundly causative of mental illness symptoms “toxic-generating bad biology” in the gut can be. At about this time, I also learned solidly how to fix such in me (correct “bad gut biology” in me).
Soon after the above discovery in August 1999, I knew that a high load of bad biology in either the gut or the body could cripple someone from the standpoint of mental health. It could (and does) do so because this bad biology releases a myriad of toxins. (This bad biology is also nutrient depleting as well.) And the higher the load of bad biology inside oneself, the greater the toxic release that this bad biology burdens one with.
For years I have known that I was still missing a piece of knowledge that would complete the answer to the puzzle of how to cure mental illness.
This piece of knowledge regarded the question of “What does one do to correct the flawed toxic-generating biology that is found inside the body, but is found outside of the GI tract?”
For example, what if (perhaps due to leaky gut) candida, parasites, or other intestinal dysbiosis issues migrate and become systemic inside one’s body? Or what if one has viral, bad bacterial, yeast, mold, fungal, or parasitic issues inside their body that he or she has picked up in any manner whatsoever? whether they have leaky gut or not.
I did not know how to correct for the above mentioned bad biology issues inside of the body prior to becoming aware of the work of Jim Humble, and Bob Beck (and Royal Rife as well).
I did become aware of Jim Humble and his work with MMS some years ago. However, I “guessed” that perhaps this man’s discovery of MMS may not be enough to deal with a wide range of bad biology in the body. (I admittedly may be wrong in this guess regarding MMS. I personally cannot wait to try MMS and Jim Humble’s wisdom on myself, just as I cannot wait to try the wisdom of Bob Beck when I can afford such.)
Once I found Bob Beck’s wisdom in addition to that of Jim Humble, I knew in a deep and very heartfelt sense that my search for THE COMPLETE CONCEPTUAL ANSWER to a myriad of mental illnesses was over! I knew that the last puzzle piece that I had been searching for had been found. And I stated such with confidence in the blog that I wrote honoring Bob Beck.
The correction of severe mental illness SHOULD ALWAYS INVOLVE correction on the following FIVE fronts: (1) Correcting One’s Functional Nutrient Status, (2) Minimizing One’s Allergic Load (especially food allergens), (3) Minimizing One’s Toxic Load (especially gut generated ones), (4) Minimizing One’s Bad Biological Load (in the body, in the brain, and in the gut), and (5) Identifying And Correcting Any And All Malabsorptive Causes.
In essence, Bob Beck, Jim Humble, and Royal Raymond Rife have taught me to add point number (4) to the mental illness correction list that I had developed years ago… such that now it was five points in total, and not just four.
To repeat myself from the Bob Beck blog:
“As of this day, Friday May 21, 2010 it is known that ALL MENTAL ILLNESSES CAN BE READILY CURED VIA NATURAL MEANS, every single one”.
Less than a week after I made the above statement, I underwent what I consider to be the second attempt in 2010 to take my life. (It is my belief that this occurred due to the fact that some portion of Big Pharma knows that Bob Beck and I are right.)
At least in a conceptual sense, on 5-21-2010 my quest to find the cure for many mental illnesses was over.
I pray that I find the collaborators and the means in the foreseeable future in which to prove to the world the veracity of what I am saying.
I have written a number of blogs in the past five months. Three of these blogs were of particular importance. It is these three blogs that I am going to be discussing today.
1. A Tribute to Bob Beck; A World Class Healer
I consider any blog that I have written and posted to the Internet on or since the day “A Tribute to Bob Beck; A World Class Healer” was written on May 21, 2010 to be the “second generation” of my knowledge and my written work.
In regard to the above mentioned blog regarding Bob Beck, for the rest of my life I will remember writing the following sentences, and how I felt at the time that I wrote them:
As of this day, Friday May 21, 2010 it is known that ALL MENTAL ILLNESSES CAN BE READILY CURED VIA NATURAL MEANS, every single one.
Mr. Robert Beck, my hat is off to you. I felt honored to be in the presence of your greatness these past two nights. I love you dearly for what you did.
***End of blog copy insertion***
At least in a conceptual sense, on 5-21-2010 my quest to find the answer to cure mental illness was over.
Two Other Important Blogs
This past summer I wrote two other blogs that I consider major and important ones. These two other blogs are as follows:
2. Governmental vs. Alternative Medicine; It Is Time For Change (2010)
The above mentioned blog maps out “The Big Picture” of change that is sorely needed in the healing arena.
3. Suppression of Great Truth is The Norm it seems
The above mentioned blog regarding the suppression of truth helped me to realize the depth of hot water that I am in.
What follows are two sections of this blog that woke me up to the fact that many persons that have discovered something that threatens the “powers that be” may be in some degree of personal danger.
The two sections below were written and/or compiled by Gary Vesperman, not I:
In their efforts to improve the well-being of their fellow humans, inventors often suffer poverty, slander, and suppression. Inventors of energy devices in particular have been threatened by large energy corporations who are allied with the United States Government and seek to enslave people in subtle ways. The tactics used against energy inventors include “legal” imprisonment on false charges, harrassment by the IRS, and outright criminal death threats, beatings, bribery, burglary, vandalism, and arson. At least a few inventors have been murdered if they were not dissuaded by other means.
Energy Invention Suppression Case Statistics
Number of Energy Invention Suppression Incidents – 95

***End of blog copy insertion***
The bottom line of the above blog copy insertion is as follows:
If one is a genius, or is very smart, and uses their intelligence to help other human beings in a manner that threatens the money, power, prestige, or agenda of any powerful industry or organization… this person that is “only trying to help” is likely to get stomped on in one way or another by the industry or organization that his or her discoveries threaten.
And the more important the discovery, the greater likelihood that “getting stomped on” means “the discoverer’s death”.
The above is not Good News for me at all.
It is not Good News for me due to the fact that as far as depression and a myriad of other mental and physical health issues goes, Willy’s Baggie idea is “as important as human discovery gets”.
Big Pharma and I are playing a chess game with each other. We have been playing this chess game with each other for over a decade. In this chess game hundreds of billions of dollars are are at stake. We are now in the endgame, a game that is very close.
I popped up out of my foxhole to fight for the truth on October 12th with the “Cambridge Who’s Who blog”. I am going to keep fighting as effectively as I can until either I go down or my war with Big Pharma is over.
There is no “next time” for me to fight for the truth. This is the last time… for in the next three to six months, one of us (Big Pharma or I) is going down.
My next blog regards “business plan” stuff… for I see a startup business as “the best way that I can effectively fight”. (There is no sense in “not bringing my life skills to bear on the outcome” in regard to this war that I am in.)
I pray that The Truth wins.
I was finally able to “change gears” in regard to the tone and thrust of my writing.
Some of what you have seen me blog from October 12th onward was “foundational material” in a attempt to gain some credibility with the world “in a hurry”. The “Cambridge Who’s Who” blog and “The Story Of Darman Mfg. Company” blog are my “resume of sorts” in an attempt to gain some credibility “in a hurry”.
Some of what you have seen me blog from October 12th onward was “protective material” such that if I die within the next ninety days, The World Will Know “Who Did It”, The World Will Know “What For”, and The World Will Know “Why”. (My goal in writing this “protective copy” was more “for protecting the flowering of the message I have to give to the world”, than it was “for protecting myself”.)
My goal in writing “an adequate amount” (if not a bit more than an adequate amount) of “protective copy” was completed by myself with the blog titled “If Things Go Right In 180 Days It Is Over (10-19-2010)”.
This “next goal” is when “the fun begins for me”. This goal is “the business plan part”. I enjoy this stuff. Some people may consider preparing a business plan “work”. I don’t; I consider it “very gratifying fun” (as a resultant of “the successful business that should come out of my efforts”, and “all the good people that I meet along the way”).
A business plan (or two) for “what I am trying to do” is a far easier (and simpler) equation that anything I ever did “business plan-wise” at Darman Mfg. Company. (What I am working on in this regard is “a piece of cake” for anyone with “basic business management skills”… it is that easy.)
I see “no reason at all” that I will not succeed here. And I am “supremely confident” of being successful within a matter of only three more months or so. (This last statement assumes (A) that “I am still alive”, and (B) that I have an “adequate bunker” in which to work out of… for another ninety days or so.)
There is no doubt in my mind I can write “a fundable business plan” within a month or so… and one that will very probably succeed in being funded within a month or so after that.
If in a pinch time-wise… I only need a matter of three or four weeks to “do what needs to be done” after business plan funding occurs… in order to have a DVD product ready to go to market. This DVD product will be titled “How To Cure Yourself Of Depression At Home With Free Form Amino Acids And Other Natural Things”.
If not in a pinch time-wise, I would like to have a couple of months (after business plan funding occurs) in which to develop my DVD product such that it is ready to go to market.
I can do a better job when “not rushed” on this. Two months to develop DVD product from scratch after being funded is “not rushed”, in my mind. I base this two month estimate to complete product development on (A) “knowing my own abilities”, (B) “knowing all that has to be done”, (C) “knowing my work abilities are up to all of the tasks at hand”, and (D) “knowing how long it takes me to complete things”. (This latter knowledge in point (D) is based on my past history as President of Darman Mfg. Company, Inc.)
There is no doubt in my mind that I can “rough one out” (a business plan) within a matter of days, such that it will be apparent to all that this business plan, when polished up a bit (when it goes from “rough” to “professional” in about a month), is likely to be a “funded” and “successful” one.
It was apparently “my destiny to get to this place”. (I have many to thank in this regard, beginning with my parents Arthur and Marion Darman.)
Let us pray that things turn out OK. Not for my sake. For the sake of the human race.
***Note: This blog has just begun, as far as writing goes. It is “under construction” and will be edited and changed. Allen***
It has become time to “begin to implement” concrete action, rather than just “tell the world” about “who I am” and “the unusual boat that I find myself in”.
I am completely “changing gears” from the thrust of many of the blogs I have written in the past week or so. The ugly and distasteful part of my blogging this past week is over. (Due to last week’s blogging, my martyrdom is assured should “Big Pharma” get stupid in the next ninety days or so and take action against me. If I go down, all the world needs to do is to “investigate the healing power of Willy’s baggie idea”. My death within the next ninety days “for any apparent reason whatsoever” should certify this idea’s validity.)
It is finally time for “THE GOOD PART!”… positive and forward motion. Here we go….
To achieve “the implementation of action” requires both “finding the right collaborative people”, and “finding enough money” to get the job done.
In regard to “finding enough money” to get the job done, the key document that needs to be created is called “a business plan”.
A business plan for a healing house is what is going to be discussed in this blog today.
[As per “The Story Of Darman Mfg. Company” blog, I have succeeded in two business plans in my life. This stuff is easy for me and I enjoy it. Startups “are a gas”. They are a lot of fun and a ton of satisfaction. I have a life history of having “an entreprenarial heart”… and quite a competent one at that.]
So let us begin… on a business plan or two, done “one at a time”.
*****The above blog to be continued******
In Regard To The Blog Titled: Thoughts And Ideas Re: Healing House Business Plan(s) (10-20-2010)
As the above blog develops and is completed over the next two to four days or so, I would deeply appreciate any constructive feedback on it from anyone in this group. My email address for such is email@example.com.
I would also “appreciate the same” (constructive feedback) when this blog is completed and posted in here in its entirety.
“Two heads are better than one” is a motto that I ran a manufacturing business with many years ago. I intend to use this same motto in regard to defining, costing, funding, and running a Healing House. I am a genius that “is smart enough” TO LISTEN TO WHAT EVERYBODY HAS TO SAY.
People less smart, equally smart, and smarter that I have all taught me a great deal in my life. I have learned “to listen”. I learned that “listening” to my employees “helped their morale”, “helped the corporation as a whole”, and “helped with profits” over twenty years ago.
Will you be a member of my team?
I have found that working as a team “is wisest” for the “corporate best”.
Will you be a member of my team? I am now accepting “heartfelt stated email resumes” from persons that have had, and still have, depresssion or manic depression or schizoaffective disorder or schizophrenia “as THE major battle in their life”. (I apologize for “using the labels” here, as I do not want “to validate them”. I simply saw no other way to get my point across.)
This “job” that “most of you” are being hired for is “of short duration”… seven to fourteen days maximum. For some of you, it may become a well paid career.
All good workers will be fairly compensated if a “paid for product” comes out of this, such as a DVD, or DVD series. (A “fair slice” of profits will be negotiated in advance, with “a bonus formula” for “your superior effort” or “your superior performance”.)
Be forewarned in regard to the above, my primary purpose is “not to make money” here. Much video material will be given out over the Internet for free.
Send me (1) a synopsis of who you are, (2) where you are coming from life-wise, (3) a list of any office, cooking, computer, film, art, writing, or music skills that you may have, (4) a list of any website(s) of yours, (5) a list of any recovery egroups that you have been active in (and for how long), (6) why you would like to be onboard, and (7) when are you available “to go to work”. And send me a resume… the standard stuff (educational background, work history, etc.) too.
Do not let lack of funds stop you from applying. The possibility exists of “funds for travel to Utica, NY and back” being provided to those in need of such.
I don’t know “the exact kick-off date” yet as far as startup goes. It is dependent on some things being completed, and these completion dates are not yet known. Right after “Thanksgiving” and “before Xmas” is “my general idea” of the startup date for the four persons I am looking for here, but this date could be “soon after Xmas” too. (These anticipated dates are “funding dependent ones”, of course. Normally, in business things take longer than what I am stating, but I think I can “shorten management goal completion times” a good bit.)
Does anybody want to help me to help millions, as well as change the course of human history?
And are they willing to do so despite the substantial potential of personal risk that may be involved?
If so, I expect to be ready soon (in a month or two) in regard to accepting “all of the competent help” that I need and/or I can get. This includes both “help that travels here”, and “help via the phone and the Internet” from afar. (All of my plans admittedly assume “my safety bunker” remaining intact, of course.)
I cannot do this alone. I need Your Help. I think I have two volunteers already. I only need about four more. (After this, the “main job slots” are filled. I need no more than six people or so, besides myself, to do what I intend to do… and “besides these six” perhaps I need a little help via the Internet from afar.)
Although I will fairly consider everyone that applies for the four main open job slots… without getting a sexual discrimination lawsuit I would like to say: Women are most welcome, they seem to collaborate better in general “than us guys”.
Lastly, “the past is the past” as far as I am concerned. “I only look forward”, and “I hope you do to”. The past is all “water under the bridge” in my mind.
Email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
“If antidepressants go down, the whole house of cards of drug-oriented medicine collapses soon thereafter”. You can “mark my words” on this.
p.s. If I am alive 90 days from now, and I still have “free market access” to ALL of the supplements that I had “legal access to” these past four years… “ANTIDEPRESSANTS WILL GO DOWN”. In my mind this is “a near certainty”. (It is “a certainty if I have a few months longer”.)
For years I have, and have continued, to learn from the posts in
EnzymesandAutism [and Candidiasis].
I wish to deeply thank all members in this group that “have taught me one thing or another” over the years with their posts, and continue to teach me with their posts to this day.
This EnzymesandAutism Yahoo group, and a Yahoo group titled “Candidiasis”, are “THE two groups” that I have followed in regard “to reading them as my time allows” for many years.
What I am currently doing “will help autism [and candida] some day”. It will help as more becomes known in regard to “how to fit broad based free form amino acids” into “the autism [and candida] healing equation”. (I KNOW that they fit… it is only the details that need to be worked out. Enzymes [and anti-candida measures] are A MUST (in addition to broad based amino acids) too. The need for one does not preclude the need for another. Whenever I can afford to, I PERSONALLY USE – AND ALWAYS RECOMMEND THE USE – of BOTH (and I recommend and often use many other supplements and natural healing measures ALWAYS too.)
I sincerely hope to become more active in this egroup some day, just as I hope to become more active in the one titled “Candidiasis”, and other Yahoo groups as well.
I am soon going to make an appeal to the management of the apartment complex I am in to “re-schedule me”, as far as my apartment renovation goes. If I do not succeed at this request, I am going to see if I can get another apartment “high up” where I have a nice view and feel safe (while my apartment is undergoing renovations).
If things “go right” in regard to the above… if I am given the latitude of three more months “safely bunkered in”… and “the bad guys don’t reach me”… Big Pharma IS DONE! as the industry we know it today.
Big Pharma IS DONE! in about 180 days or so.
Ninety days (for my work to be completed) plus ninety days for the Truth to Mature and take effect over the Internet and in the stock market = 180 days.
What I intend to do in a Healing House environment and with a video camera and YouTube, NaturalNewsTV, etc. should “CRUSH” the public opinion of Big Pharma beginning in about ninety days or so (“if things go right”).
And it will “CRUSH” their aggregate stock value as an industry a matter of months after “the first ninety days” (that I need to complete video material) too.
A quarter of a trillion dollars “lost in aggregate domestic stock value” within six to nine months from today is my best guess of the size of this “CRUSH”. And this downward spiral of “aggregate domestic stock value” should continue. Who knows over the years how big this loss of “aggregate domestic stock value” will be? (I sure don’t, but I have an “idea”. My idea is “roughly double” the estimate given above… or “roughly a half a trillion dollars” in stock value lost within a few short years or so.)
One should realize that I am fully aware that “antidepressant total annual sales” are only a small fraction of the Multi-Hundred Billion Dollar Numbers mentioned above. I am predicating my fiscal guesses on the certainty that “If the antidepressant class of medications falls to the Truth”, then MANY entire classifications of other drugs soon “fall to the truth” as well.
“If antidepressants go down, the whole house of cards of drug-oriented medicine collapses soon thereafter”. You can “mark my words” on this.
Perhaps I should mention here that I was “practically clairvoyant” at Darman Mfg. Company when I ran it in regard to “pro forma numbers” of the first of my two S.B.A. loans, one for an “F8 compatible towel cabinet mechanism”. The “first year’s numbers” of “actual year one numbers” vs. “pro forma forecasting of year one’s numbers” in a number of categories were “right on the money, and uncanningly so”. I hit the first year’s sales pojections of F8 compatible mechanisms “right on the money” dollar-wise (within one thousand dollars of about $130K). And I was extremely close dollar-wise in many other fiscal categories on these F8 compatible mechanism pro forma projections as well. (I did these pro forma projections myself for “my first business plan”.) In my second S.B.A. loan effort (a collaborative effort), I think I have a “newspaper article record” (a copy of the article stating such) in my possession that stated a (my) forecast of annual sales of 30,000 units (of towel cabinets) a year vs. the current annual sales of 3,000 units or so. In our “peak unit sales year” at Darman Mfg. Company we sold about 29,500 cabinets or so… only about 500 off my peak projection years ago. Without any undue effort (I almost never “took home” a math book, or any book for that matter) I got an 800 S.A.T. in math in high school years ago. And in my calculus class in high school, I (and a few others) in my class, were helping to “teach the teacher”. (He was “assigned” this calculus class, and our class was his first. He admitted to us he needed help understanding calculus, and help him we did, I most of all.)
What the above paragraph means is that the “above billion dollar guesses” are coming from a person with “mathematical gifts”… and I have a long life history of being “no slouch” at this stuff. I have “a sense for numbers”.
[Stated “with no ego at all”, but simply stated “as fact” so that the reader understands me better: I am, or I was… until I took a “large hit of mercury” in 2002 from a big silver amalgam filling being absorbed into me… a genius. Or I am close enough to being a genius that “it does not matter”, as far as “work results that I have achieved in my life” goes.]
I sure “hope” that my life lasts another three to six months.
I do not “hope” this for my sake. (I stand to gain nothing for what I am doing, or “not having any time to enjoy it” if I did.)
I “hope” that I last another three to six months for the sake of the health and well-being of the world, and all of the people in it.
May God’s will prevail here. If it doesn’t, I will “see you in the next life”.
Lastly, despite appearances for the past sixteen years I did my best at all times. And I am deeply sorry it took me so long to get to where I am today. (Please forgive my tardiness in this regard.)
As is often the case with blogs on my Nutrientscure WordPress site, after I write a blog in the following few days I often make some changes, insertions, or deletions.
The addition in this blog is my “second important change” to a blog I wrote the other day titled “I Have To Move Out Of My Bunker (10-19-2010)”.
The following copy has been added to “I Have To Move Out Of My Bunker (10-19-2010)”.
I sure would like to just keep “the bunker” that I have, and “skip these renovations”, or at least delay them for “ninety more days”.
“Ninety more days” without any moving hassles, or minimal and “safe” ones, means that what I intend to do in regard to making “healing house video material” can be completed without delay.
My first healing house volunteer is an ideal one! She is scheduled to spend a week here with me in mid-Novmeber sometime. (This last statement assumes that I do not lose “an adequate bunker” in the housing complex that I am in, and that there is a safe transition while moving.)
Incidentally, I sure hope that I can stay in this bunker, as it comes “with needed help attached” to it. This help is in the form of “a pair of legs” I trust with my life that lives two doors down from me.
The social worker that got me this apartment believed in my circumstances regarding “great danger due to Big Pharma”. She used her influence in this apartment complex to get “the helper of my choice” put in an apartment as close as she could to me so he could “be my helper and get me things” (such as groceries, etc.”) I am in 1406, and “my helper” is in 1404.
***End of insertion***
My father Arthur Darman was a gifted and very wise man. Art taught so many so much, often using the Socratic Method of “asking his children questions” in which to to do so.
“What to you do in regard to making a judgement about something when you do not have all of the pertinent facts in your possession yet? my father asked me once.
“Wait until you do have all of the facts” was my answer.
Arthur responded, yes, that is one part of the answer. The other part is “hold your judgement in abeyance” until you do have “all of the pertinent facts”.
And then Art counciled me: Do not rush to judgement when “You do not know all the facts” of any particular situation you may be dealing with.
I respectfully request that “the world hold its judgement of me in abeyance” for another month or two… until I can “prove what I know” through “the testimony of a few successful graduates” of a week long “how to self-treat depression course” in my healing house.
I pray I can hold on to this bunker, and can find what is termed in business “a bridge loan” (a rather small one, 3K to 5K or so.). This “bridge loan” is prior to traditional business plan funding. Traditional business plan funding is funding which I will be DEFINITELY PURSUING VERY SOON as well. (I have all of the skills needed to do this “in spades”. Simply read the blog titled “The Story of Darman Mfg. Company” and “You will know”.)
p.s. Week One ended on Monday the 18th. My progress report on Week One is coming soon. It has been a bit delayed.
To the best of my knowledge, I am going to have to be moving to another apartment in early November. I am not “certain” of the date yet… but it is “fairly soon” for sure.
I knew this move was coming, but it had kept getting delayed over the past few months. I had hoped it was going to get delayed some more.
When I found a few weeks ago that “I very probably had to move in early November”, I had to make a choice. This choice was “do I fire many blogs of truth before I move, or do I wait until after?”
I decided to fire at Big Pharma “before I moved, rather than after”. (I hope I made the right choice here.) So on October 12th I began to fire… and the first shot was the Cambridge Who’s Who blog.
This move is mandated due to the fact that my apartment complex is undergoing extensive renovations. My unit has reached it ‘s point in “their schedule”. Every unit in the entire complex is being renovated.
I would move to another unit until mine was fixed up, and then “move back”. This is “quite a hassle”, especially in light of my unusual circumstances.
I may also be getting “kicked out”.
Or I may decide to leave Utica of my own accord on November 3rd or so.
I don’t know what “is best” for me yet of the above choices.
I sure would like to just keep “the bunker” that I have, and “skip these renovations, or at least delay them for niney more days”.
Incidentally, I sure hope that I can stay in this bunker, as it comes “with needed help attached” to it. This help is in the form of “a pair of legs” I trust with my life that lives two doors down from me.
The social worker that got me this apartment believed in my circumstances regarding “great danger due to Big Pharma”. She used her influence in this apartment complex to get “the helper of my chioce” put in an apartment as close as she could to me so he could “be my helper and get me things” (such as groceries, etc.”) I am in 1406, and Dan is in 1404.
I do not know what is going to happen, with the exception of I “must move out of the bunker” I have been in.
This is not good. All kinds of security risks arise.
I’ve got to think about all of this.
When I know what I am going to be doing, I will “blog this” (assuming that I can without placing my life at great risk).
I am going to do a simple will on paper VERY soon. I am in deep sh…t for sure.
My odds from here on out are probably about 50/50 making it from “one month to the next”. I can sense this.
The drug industry sorely wants me to be dead.
The Darman Mfg. Company blog, the Cambridge Who’s Who blog, the Financial Trigger blog, and the other blogs I posted this past week HAS accelerated my “hanging date” from drug industry skulduggery for sure.
I pray to God that I make it through this upcoming transition safely, and without too much hassle or delay.
Is there any person or party in the world that has “a bunker for rent” temporaily? I would sure appreciate it if “You would let me know”, if you were aware of such. I am willing to “teach you how to cure yourself” for free when I am there. Indeed, I would LOVE to help with YOU! with such.
I would love to collaborate with others “trying to change the mental health system”, rather than “fight this fight alone”.
All I want to do at this point is “blog in safety” (and “film in safety” too).
If I lose “my safety”, I lose “my ability to blog”.
If I blog without “safety”, I will “be dead”. Make no mistake about this.
Even if you do not believe me in regard to the above… this does not matter.
It is “my life at stake”, not yours.
Due to this forced move, I may be in Big Trouble. I simply do not know all of the particulars of this yet.
p.s. There is one VERY easy way that “all of my friends on the Internet” can help me at this point. It is to send an email me at email@example.com stating the following in the email body (not in an attachment):
You believe me when I say “my life is in clear and present danger for sure”. And please do so “in your own words”. These emails may help me to negotiate a better (“safer”) deal with the apartment complex management. Or they may help me “in other critical ways”.
I would like to deeply thank all those that may help me with the above.
Tomorrow I am going to post a “Week One Progress Report”.
This progress report will bring up a few problematic things that are upcoming.
Soon I am going to have to take a few days off to do “a few other things besides blogging” that need to be done around here.
I also need a few days to gather my strength again, and to think about how to resolve “some things” in regard to the complex situation that I find myself in.
As soon as possible it is back to work blogging again… and at an “output rate” similar to that of Week One. (I have no live-in healing house company yet. There is not much else to do for me in the apartment I am in, but “sit at the keyboard”, and “do what I do” over the Internet.)
I came a long way this past week, my first one “out of the gate” after hiding for so long due to valid safety concerns.
Big Pharma is getting buried by the truth, despite the fact I am bedeviled and harrassed by hackers all day and all night long. Using Facebook? Not me, Big Pharma’s hackers won’t let me do a lot of things there.
How many more of “this past week” by me can Big Pharma stand?
As long as I can “remain safe” in the apartment I am in, I am going to keep hammering away at Big Pharma with “the Truth”. (If I lose this apartment I am in Big Trouble. I signed “my death sentence” this past week. Big Pharma will never underestimate me again… lol.)
Big Pharma does not stand a chance in regard to continuing to “suppress the truth” in regard to the healing power of free form amino acids and many other natural measures if I remain alive much longer.
You will realize this when you see my “Week One Progress Report”.
This past week I have “put my life on the line” for the human race. There should be no doubt about this in anyone’s mind.
I sure hope that the world does not abandon me “in time of need”, if such should ever arise. (It has actually already arisen. The Week One Progress report will elucidate this.)
May God’s will prevail.
Dear Tribe Of Many Colors members:
I recently joined your Tribe on the Internet.
I am grateful to God that another human being saw fit to make me aware of your Tribe. It gladdens my heart to have found so many well organized “warriors of similar heart”.
Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Allen Darman.
I am a person that “cured myself” of manic depression (bipolar disorder) in the late 1990′s. I did so by using nutrients and other self-applied natural means.
I am also a father that taught my (then) teenage son Willy Darman how to do the same. (“To cure himself” of a similar illness, which he did beginning at age thirteen.)
I am a white man with “a Native American heart”.
I am ashamed of what my fellow white men have done to Mother Earth, and everything in it. And I want this damage to stop.
I have been warring with Big Pharma for the past thirteen years (and justifiably so). Soon “one of us is going to go down”. (May God’s will prevail in this regard.)
“Little Grandmother” Keisha Crowther’s videos floored me when I saw them on YouTube a month or two ago.
Little Grandmother’s wisdom is a God Granted Gift. And She is using it wisely.
I humble myself before her, and quietly state:
“Please accept me as a member of the Tribe.”
“I can help you, and you can help me.”
“We have a “win-win” situation between us”; one that has the power and potential to creat a “win-win” situation between the Tribe Of Many Colors and the entire world.
“If the Tribe is willing, I am willing to freely teach a course in natural healing to all that will listen to what I have to say.”
I wish to teach ”Re-inventing the Native American Medicine Man Using Modern Supplement and Natural Measure Healing Tools”. (This is the actual title of the course.) Fairly soon I will become a “regularly active member” in a forum(s) of the Tribe Of Many Colors. This is perhaps a good place for this teaching to start.
Incidentally, God appears to be directing all of this. As some “sign” evidence of this:
Santa Fe has been the “home of my heart” for at least two decades now, if not quite a bit more.
I had a vision once in the late 1990’s that I belonged in the Santa Fe area. This vision was that my goal to bring “common sense to healing” (instead of “just drugs”) was going to be resolved there. (I actually wrote a renowned doctor named Abram Hoffer and told him so. I told him that my war with Big Pharma “was going to end in Santa Fe”.)
I am aware that some of what I state in the above sounds farfetched. Numerous blogs onhttp://nutrientscure.wordpress.com may help one see the truth of all this.
I am “the little guy” (named “David”) in the war I have been fighting with Big Pharma since the fall of 1997. (This was when I first discovered that modern medicine was using drugs to treat (A) “the state of broad nutrient deficiencies” and (B) “the malabsorptive syndrome” that a bipolar diagnosis represents.)
My crystal ball says that within ninety days “Goliath” (Big Pharma) is doomed due to what I can do.
I feel deeply Grateful to God for having gotten to the place that I am in right now.
I also feel deeply Thankful to God for Little Grandmother providing me with “clear sign” on YouTube of “where God wants me to soon go”.
See you all in April… or perhaps in May, assuming “I am still alive by then”.
“Working Together, We Can Change The World.”
I Know We Can!
I am getting a lot of positive feedback from all over the world at this point. So much for me in the past few weeks has changed Thank God.
This change in the past few weeks since I could be “honest with the world” is entirely due to my “self imposed jail” finally being finished such that “the door solidly got closed” (with me safely inside). I could finally go “to work”… and “probably” live to see tomorrow.
I got a particularly nice comment today on one of my blogs. This comment was so heartwarming to me I thought I would share it in here:
Your closing last sentence with “Gratitude to GOD” and analogy of David and Goliath makes all the difference.
As JF Kennedy said in the sixties ” When good men do nothing…. evil proliferates”
You represent ALL GOOD INTENTIONS, for the GOOD of ALL. I say a prayer for your well being. May GOD’s WILL PREVAIL.
Keep well, and keep the faith in GOD CREATOR of all things.
You so obviously “enjoy” in your life, lived ON PURPOSE.
[I love the person who wrote the above. We have never met, nor probably ever will. I’d need a passport… and do not intend on getting one. I am in this apartment “until it is over, one way or the other”. Never meeting someone does not preclude one from loving the other person for “who they are”.]
I commented back…
I wish to deeply thank you for your words. I borrowed “some of them”… May God’s Will Prevail. Amen. is now this blog’s closure.
Thank you again for everything.
I wish to clarify this issue of “dealing with candida” vs. “taking baggies” once and for all.
In August 1999, I knowingly risked my life to see if I could resolve high candida “in my gut quick”.
As a result of my successfully resolving my “high candida status” in about a day in August 1999 via the use of a methodology that would kill many that might try it (from their small or large intestines bursting), I know that the resolution of “bad gut biology” (to include candida) is the cornerstone issue for many persons in order for them to recover their physical and mental health.
In regard to myself, I know in a deep and heartfelt sense that the resolution of “bad gut biology” (to include candida) is A MUST for me if I am going to reach an “optimally healthy state”. (Baggies alone won’t get me there.)
I am in complete agreement with many persons in regard to how important the resolution of high candida, and other intestinal dysbiosis issues, are in regard to one’s health.
Here is how the baggie fits into this equation:
I know deep in my heart, and I know this from experience, that high candida (1) causes some degree of malabsorption of a wide range of essential nutrients, and (2) seriously impairs the digestion and/or assimilation of the amino acids inherent in protein foods. In doing the latter, high candida leaves its host with a “functionally deficient amino acid status”, and perhaps a “functionally deficient vitamin and mineral status” as well.
When persons take weeks, months, or even years in which to resolve a serious case of high candida in their gut, this means that for weeks, months, or even years (as long as it takes to resolve “high candida”) these persons are “functionally deficient in many essential nutrients”, and ESPECIALLY THE AMINO ACID CLASS OF NUTRIENTS, as high candida causes these deficiencies.
Willy’s baggies do a number of things.
One of the biggest things that a Willy’s baggie does for me is give my body and my brain “an adequate dose” of broad based nutrition to run on all day long, despite the fact I am still “high candida”.
I can almost have “only three “foods” in “my entire diet” for months on end, and still feel decent and function well all day long. Sometimes I admittedly also throw in some dark chocolate, a can of tuna fish (or some beef), or some rice and lentils into “my daily diet”, in addition to the following three “foods” listed below:
These three “foods” are (1) Coca Cola with HFCS (as my only means of hydration), (2) Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (four cups a day), and (3) a Willy’s Baggie with an amino acid loading that is appropriate for the amount of work I have to do, and the stress that I am under, at that time. (I am using the word “food” loosely here, as none of the above are “foods” per se. One is “poison”, the second I would classify as “a junk food”, and the third is “supplements”.)
I sincerely hope that the reader recognizes that the diet reflected in the above “is not a healthy diet”, and “that I am NOT recommending such”. My body is simply “a laboratory for discovering, refining, and validating new knowledge”. This is knowledge that I have been, and still am, developing “for the world”. (I have been using my body “as a laboratory” since the fall of 1997, or about thirteen years ago.) Although the above diet might be so unhealthy as to take years off my life, it is not like “Big Pharma was going to allow” me to live another year or two anyway. (At least that is my interpretation of the odd situation that I find myself in.)
Despite my having a “daily diet” similar to the the above “hundreds of times” in the past four years, it still amazes me how well I can feel and function while on this “rather bizarre diet”. I feel OK on it, and I can work “all day long” without any undue or excessive fatigue. (If this is not a profound testament to “the nutrient power of baggies”, I do not know what is.)
It amazes me that I can practically live “on baggies and a sugar bowl” and feel better than most my age. (I am 58.)
It also amazes me that with one baggie in my diet as little as every other day or so, I AM NEVER DEPRESSED, but when I lack baggies for a long period of time, I am often so (and to a degree that is rather serious, if not severe sometimes).
I have eaten in the above manner very often for years now… in order “to prove out the value of Willy’s Baggie’s for the entire human race”.
After over four years of deliberating, “The Jury Is In” in regard to what Willy’s baggies can do for a person that is “high candida”.
What follows is the Jury’s Verdict:
Willy’s baggies, properly formulated in their broad based free form amino acid “by you and for you” can provide amazing symptom relief for a person that is high candida. This is especially true if a “fiber purge” is used an hour or two before the Willy’s Baggie is taken.
Baggies help with “almost everything”, to include minimizing the negative life impact of “high candida”.
It is a fact that Willy’s baggies “obsolete” entire classes of medications. It is so much of “a solid fact” that Big Pharma “wants me dead” due to the co-discovery that my son Willy and I have made.
The bottom line in regard to “Willy’s Baggies” is that THEY ARE ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT DISCOVERIES IN HUMAN HISTORY, as far as the achievement, retention, or recovery of human health is concerned. (Please remember that it is a genius with no self seeking agenda that is stating this.)
I sincerely hope that this blog clarifies things in regard to the relationship between candida and Willy’s miraculous baggies.

***Important Note #1 dated 8/27/2011: When a rough version of the blog below was first posted in October 2010 I had anticipated adequate angelic philanthropic funding in order to get the job done. Unfortunately, the angelic funding that I had anticipated did not arrive in full. What little did arrive fell far short of what was needed to complete the task before me. Allen***
The financial trigger to crush aggregate Big Pharma stock value is now in place. (“Aggregate” here means the drug industry as a whole.)
Please allow me a few minutes to explain this.
The following material essentially means that (A) soon after the release of video material I can prepare in regard to how to self-treat depression at home is widely spread all over the Internet, (B) pharmaceutical company stock will fall. This fall may be quite substantial in dollar value in regard to the aggregate value of domestic (U.S.) drug company stock.
My “best guess” here is for aggregate drug industry stock to fall by more than one hundred billion dollars within a matter of three months after video material I can prepare in regard to self-treating depression is widely disseminated for free on multiple video sites on the Internet.
My best guess may admittedly be way off the mark.
The loss in aggregate domestic drug company stock value within a ninety day (90) period after video material I can prepare reaches the Internet may be more than triple this (greater than Three Hundred Billion Dollars).
1. The value of some stocks are heavily influenced by public perception. (ALL Big Pharma stock is influenced by this.)
If the public is widely given a valid reason to feel bad about an industry that they widely purchase from, this industry’s stock value will fall in the marketplace.
And if public is widely given a valid reason to feel VERY BAD about an industry that they widely purchase from, this industry’s stock value is likely to fall VERY SUBSTANTIALLY in the marketplace.
The general public in the United States and elsewhere widely purchases from the drug industry. Who isn’t on one of more of their myriad of toxic, symptom-masking, drugs for one reason or another?
2. Video material THAT I AM ABLE TO GENERATE IN REGARD TO HOW TO SELF-TREAT DEPRESSION CAN CRUSH THE PUBLIC PERCEPTION OF BIG PHARMA WITHIN A NINETY DAY TIMEFRAME OR SO (assuming that I have adequate means to do so). (THIS IS A FACT.)
Given adequate means to work with only a dozen (or so) people that are depressed, I can give the public a valid reason to feel VERY BAD about an industry that they widely purchase from.
Via the use of video outlets on the Internet such as YouTube, NaturalNewsTV, etc. in short order I can widely spread THIS VALID REASON for the general public to feel VERY BAD about the pharmaceutical drug industry. (I can spread this message all over the English speaking world from the apartment that I currently reside in.)
Even if I am a little wrong on the timeframe specified in the above, Big Pharma, as the industry it is today, is doomed if I remain alive to complete the video material I could generate within the ninety days or so.
3. I AM NOW LINKED WITH A RESPECTED FISCAL ANALYST ON MY NUTRIENTSCURE YOUTUBE ACCOUNT. And I have ready and available access to a myriad of other persons of similar ilk on YouTube as well. Any message that I may have in regard to entire medication classes being completely obsolete can easily reach its its intended audience. I hope to soon have a number of these messages, my first target of them being the entire antidepressant class of medications.
I consider the connections on YouTube as reflected in the above to be a “Financial Trigger”. This financial trigger can readily precipitate Big Pharma’s Impending Stock Fall once video material on how to self-treat depression hits the Internet en masse. Within ninety days or so (hopefully)… I am going to pull this Financial Trigger… I swear to God I am.
What Can Big Pharma Do About Me?
It is going to look awful funny if I am not alive ninety days from today. I live “shut in” an apartment that has concrete block walls in the halls, and a strong steel door with multiple devices I added to it (so as to insure it remains closed when I close it). The second entry point to the apartment I am in is a sliding glass door to a porch. This porch is on the 14th floor. I am using two pieces of steel pipe to keep the sliding door closed. The third entry point to this apartment is the window in the bedroom that overlooks the porch. I have taken security measures there as well.
“To die in a locked apartment is very suspicious”.
And for a hitman to get into this apartment represents quite a bit of difficulty, if not is almost impossible, without leaving a sign of forced entry.
Big Pharma is going to have a bit of a problem silencing me within the next ninety days for sure. And even if they do find some way of making me dead within the next ninety days, THE ENTIRE WORLD WILL KNOW.
All I can say to Big Pharma at this point is Good Luck stopping me from either killing you with knowledge, or killing you with martyrdom, if you happen to find a way in the next ninety days in regard to taking me out.
I have been fighting with Big Pharma since the fall of 1997. This was when I first discovered that modern medicine was using drugs to treat (A) a state of broad nutrient deficiency and (B) the malabsorptive syndrome that a bipolar diagnosis represents.
My crystal ball says that within ninety days Big Pharma is inevitably doomed due to what I can do.
“Methinks the world is going to be a little bit different in another six months or so than it is today”.
I have so many to thank for where I am today. And I feel deeply grateful to God for having gotten to this place.

I have seen every video that the NIA (National Inflation Association) has put out over the past five months or so when I first found these people on the Internet.
I have also seen every video, or almost every video, that the NIA has put out since its inception on the Internet.
I have seen the NIA movie titled “MeltUp” on YouTube (numerous times). As of a few minutes ago, so have 832,185 other people. This is “GREAT STUFF”, and should be seen by every American. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eb1n1X0Oqdw
In my mailbox today, I got the following information in regard to another blockbuster video the NIA is making that is soon coming out.
I cannot recommend that the reader go to the NIA website in the link below, as well as sign up for the NIA’s free newsletter.
These people are true heroes in my mind for doing what they are doing. I cannot thank them enough.
Below was taken via “cut and paste” from the NIA free newsletter I got today:
NIA just released a 2-minute trailer for ‘End of Liberty’, NIA’s new documentary coming later this month!
‘End of Liberty’ is the most eye-opening film ever produced about the U.S. government. This film would be funny if it wasn’t so true. For those who are lucky enough to see it, ‘End of Liberty’ will simply be the most important film they will ever see!
Please watch the trailer immediately by going to: http://inflation.us/videos.html
It is important for you to contact all of your friends and family members this weekend. Tell them to become members of NIA for free so that they along with you can be the first to see ‘End of Liberty’! By the end of 2010, the whole world will be talking about this movie!

There are a few people I would like to deeply thank:
Nicola Grace from Health Freedom, I will never forget the trip to Wellington years ago when we stood in front of parliament with our Health Freedom Red
Umbrellas. This was our right to choose what supplements we wanted to take to stay healthy and alive. I will also never forget those anti-vitamin marches we went on. This is where I met the other lady I greatly admire, Green M.P Sue Kedgley. If it was not for Sue the anti-vitamin bill would have gone through. Sue is such a role model for me.
Linda Christianson from Framework Devonport Organic Gardens, Linda pushed to have Food and Mood into Frameworks Personal Development course. Linda has been very supportive to me and the other consumers at the gardens, and is a real greenie and is such an inspiration. She is a very determined and strong lady and very knowledgeable, my friend as well as my “boss”.
I want to thank David Hardy and Tony Stephan the founders of Truehope in Canada who gave me back my life. Obviously, also to Eric and Julie Blankenbyl from Strauss Herbs (the distributors of Empower in New Zealand) for their amazing kindness and support.
Adrienne Grace who ran the Food and Mood workshops with whom I assisted. Adrienne has been talking about food and mood for years and it is only now that she is being appreciated. Dr Glenn Twentyman, a true holistic doctor, “first do thee no harm”, a man with compassion.
Lastly to Jan my best friend who has a heart of pure gold.
For six years I have been taking a broad spectrum vitamin and mineral supplement from Canada. Empower see http://www.truehope.com is specifically designed for mental health issues, particularly Bipolar.
Empower is very intensive, or therapeutic. It is not available through the pharmacy or health shop, but Empower supplies can be obtained if confirmed by your doctor or psychiatrist.
It has been micronised which means electronically charged and chelated (pronounced keylated) meaning the nutrients are attached to an amino acid. As well the synergy effect of having 36 vitamins, minerals, amino acids and herbs, makes Empower more bio available to the mind and body. The nutrients are also in a particular balance for them to work most effectively.
They say there is no such thing as a magic bullet, well there was for me! You are not supposed to use words such as miracle as this has religious connotations. If God did create the world, he created all of the plants and mineral rocks that these nutrients came from. Magnesium from the ores, iodine from the sea, vitamin C from fruit and vegetables.
I do believe this supplement saved me; it did not change my life. I did not have a life before; I existed as a walking zombie, a dead person.
My friend once said to me, “You are the most miserable looking person I have ever met; anyone would think someone has died”. I said ‘‘they have, me”. I am afraid the same is true when I look at my other mental health friends who look blank. It’s not just the medications which give them this look; because I was never on any, it may also be from them having massive nutritional deficiencies.
I am very excited to write this book, for a couple of reasons. Firstly, I want other consumers not to give up hope and know that you can be CURED. We are talking about an 80% effect rate with a broad spectrum supplement. Dr Abram Hoffer (M .D, P .H.D) practising individual treatment talked about 90% CURE rates; did I say 90%? Yes, and did I say cure? YES!!
Dr Abram Hoffer was a psychiatrist who treated 5000 people in the 1950s with mega doses of nutrients. He ran double blind trials and he published 40 year follow up reports. Reference Patrick Holford “Optimum Nutrition for the Mind”, pages xii and 5.
Patrick Holford, who is considered by his peers to be one of the world’s top nutritionists and health experts, has treated more than 100,000 people (year 2003) including those with schizophrenia, has had similar rates of success. Reference Patrick Holford “Optimum Nutrition for the Mind”, inside cover.
What Patrick writes and talks about will become public knowledge in 10 years time. Or should I say it takes 10 years for mainstream medicine to catch up!
I also want mental health service workers to know about these incredible cure rates.
In the future some of them won’t have jobs anymore because consumers will be well again! Well as in vital and full of life and energy and clarity, this is the true meaning of health. Not just out of hospital which seems to be the conventional medical model.
I want people to know what has happened to me. I am not worried about being private when there is so much suffering in the mental (and physical) health systems. My friend Ross said that every day he spent in the mental hospital is like one day he lost from his soul. He said that he was so worried he would be so emotionless in 5 years time. I want people to know that other health issues from cancer, heart disease, diabetes, asthma and arthritis can also be cured or prevented using the same methods I have. A change in dietary habits, eliminating toxins and stress from your life, any food allergies; exercise, and top quality supplements or herbs (concentrated nutrients).
We are fed a lot of lies in society, and one of them is that health issues cannot be cured. Mega doses of vitamin C will kill cancer cells. Cancer cells cannot survive in an alkaline environment (like your body).Think of this. If these nutritional supplements were pharmaceutical drugs which cured people that has NO SIDE EFFECTS EVER IN THE 6 YEARS I HAVE TAKEN THEM, this would be all over the news as a new wonder drug. However, there is not a mention of nutritional support. But, there is however a little on Canadian Television on Empower (So things are beginning to come out). This is because the drug companies spend hundreds of millions of dollars every year lobbying governments to make sure they can maintain their dominant position.
In the last 20 years, and not one death from natural health. In contrast, death in New Zealand in 1998 (the last year of detailed official statistics available) caused by adverse reactions to pharmaceutical drugs killed 1524 New Zealanders. Referencehttp://www.Healthfreedom.co.nz Rebuttal to Annette King. This does not include serious drug reactions as well. These medicines are supposed to heal you, not KILL you.
In the U.S.A, a staggering 42,000 people die every year from psychiatric medications alone Reference “Making a Killing” the untold story of psychotropic drugging as screened on Maori television Oct 09.
Many retired FDA officials go to work as special advisors to the Pharmaceutical Industry. The fact is it has been widely reported that Federal Drug Administration officials are frequently rewarded with lucrative jobs with companies they were regulating.http://www.smart-publications.com/nutrition/fda.php.
In order to protect its authority and boost Big Pharma’s sales, the FDA went after numerous natural health companies in 2009. http://www.naturalnews.com/025347_n…
Of course the worse is that many medical schools training and research relies heavily on Drug Company funding and teaching a drug orientated approach. So a medical student only learns a minimum amount on nutrition.
Medicine is defined in Section 3 of the medicines act. A product is a medicine if it has a pharmacological effect and is used in humans primarily for a therapeutic effect. Pharmacological means drug action. Reference, http://www.medsafe “About Medsafe”’ “What we do”.
The activity of Medsafe supports Health Freedoms argument that a pharmaceutical biased regulator should not be regulating what amounts to the industry’s major competitor, the natural health industry. Reference Nicola Grace spokesperson Health
Freedom. http://www.healthfreedom.co.nz . Medsafe Witch hunt 2007-2008.
I am very scared of the drug companies and the power they wield. I have been very sick and now enjoy excellent health. However, if the drug companies (through Medsafe) have their way and ban or lower the doses of supplements as they tried to do recently in New Zealand with the anti-vitamin bill, then I will end up lying on my bed in a trance again. Also my friends will never have a chance to have a normal life. I believe in being positive, though. In reading this one more person knows the real truth about drug companies, and profit, and knowledge is power.
60,000 people worldwide are on Empower including about 5,000 in Canada.
Fortunately the nutritional supplement Empower has worked very well for me. I believe I may still be deficient at the time of my menses as I am still a little stressed, tired, and have brain fog.
Taking extra minerals can make Empower not work so effectively, as it throws out the balance. I used to take extra vitamin C when I had my menes. I also up my dose from 15 Empower a day to about 30, then also, but with time I am cutting back. This may seem like a lot, but I need this much! I had terrible PMS; however this has completely gone now.
I am a lot better than what I was. I am even better when I do not have my menses. Look at it this way, years ago my illness became 90% of my personality and only 10% was me, now I am 90% me and I am amazed! My mind is so calm, these days it doesn’t race anymore, and I am able to ring people instead of hide from them, and there is no more lying on the bed in trances!
You cannot put a price on health as it affects our moods and how we function in daily life. I am now 46 years old and from the age of about 19 have suffered with chronic low grade depression (dysthymia is the fancy word) for about 23 years. I say I have depression, but I do not say I suffer anymore. I stopped counting the last 2 years.
Remember, I had chronic low grade depression, but this was enough to completely debilitate me and take over my life. It’s only been recently that I have been well enough to write a book as my mind is clear enough to express itself more fully. At one time I did not have my health, and if you have ever had a health issue, you will know that my illness is virtually all I thought about every second of the day. Why? Because it sucks the life out of you.
This is my way for speaking up for my friends who do not have a voice. I was lucky in that I wasn’t under the mental health system or on medications; I was at home, not in hospital. I was also very fortunate in that I was determined to get better. Without determination you cannot help yourself.
I feel I am the new face of mental health like Autumn Stringam from Canada who cured her own Bipolar on Empower. We are finally healthy, full of vitality and function so well.
I know of people who have died of the medications. Ten people because of a combination of the medications, fatty and processed foods, lack of exercise, smoking and alcohol. Your liver simply cannot detoxify all this and you have a heart attack.
It is alright for businesses to make money, but not at the expense of people losing their health, their children, and income, and future, because of the Drug Companies and the mental health system as I have seen with my friends.
Anyway, this story is about the other side of health. I did this on my own as I had no friends or partner, and I had cut off from my family, although I do see them now. They are proud of me as they have seen the changes in me. My father used to tell me to pull myself up by my bootstraps, which although well meaning, showed he never really understood my health issue. He made me feel as if I was lazy and did not want to work, when all I wanted to be was well enough so I could work. I am now well enough 6 years later! You would not tell someone with cancer or arthritis to pull themselves up by their boot straps.
When I went on Empower, (2004) there was only internet support from Canada and Eric (Strauss Herbs) in N.Z. Now you have someone ringing you once a week or as needed.
Before we start, here are some basic facts I would like you to consider:
1 Our entire bodies are made from food. Every single cell – DNA, hormones, neurotransmitters, eyes, teeth, skin; bones are made from proteins, water (nearly 70% of our bodies), carbohydrates, essential fats, and coenzymes, vitamins and minerals to make everything function properly. A deficiency in any one of these nutrients has serious consequences for us.
2 We are told via the Drug Companies through the media, Ministry of Health and doctors, that genetics is responsible for our health issues. It is only a theory that our genes make us predisposed towards an illness. A stressful life event e.g. divorce, lost of job, exams, drug use; can certainly trigger health issues. Genes account for only about 30% of our health and lifestyle affects us 70%. This is according to Dr Moira Fordyce a geriatrician from the Stanford University’s School of Medicine.
http://www.articleslatimes.com2009/febA2007LAtimes . This is good news, because if we control our lifestyle we have a lot of control over our own health.
3 Stress depletes many nutrients from our body including zinc, magnesium, vitamin C, and all the B vitamins, which are all vital to the nervous system including of course the brain.
4 Our moods e.g. being tired, grumpy are often the first to become apparent, when we have any health issue. This is because our brains, although weighing only 2-3% of our body weight, use up to 40% of our energy from food.
5 We have the remarkable ability to heal ourselves if given the right raw materials from which we are made; this is called orthomolecular medicine, (correct molecule) which addresses the underlying cause of our health issue. Biochemical’s is another word for nutrients.
When our brain chemistry becomes restored on something like Empower, we need to lower our conventional medications. It is dangerous not to as we will become overmedicated and suffer adverse drug reactions. It is possible to completely eliminate your conventional medications, and be in excellent health without them when you have corrected your biochemical imbalances.
6 We have nutritional deficiencies because of conventional farming practices of depleting soils of nutrients, and not adding them back. Herbicides, pesticides, fertilisers, irradiation (spraying with toxins) and growth hormones, genetic engineering (g.e) are linked to cancers and neurological diseases. Then our food processing methods (e.g. fruit picked unripened and kept for up to 6 months in cold storage) pasteurisation, homogenisation, and canning. Processing food e.g. brown food to make white food e.g. brown to white rice, strips over 77% of nutrients from it. Then toxic chemicals such as preservatives, (salting, smoking and fermentation are more natural) colourings and additives are added. Then we over boil. We should eat raw, lightly stir fry, steam or boil in a little water for just a few minutes. Microwaves can be called cancer boxes. Reference Drs Blanc and Hertel from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology. http://www.mercola.com/…/microwave/hazards2htm-United States.
7 For unknown genetic or metabolic reasons some people have a higher need for nutrients than others to function. Empower has a staggering 960mcg of vitamin B12 in it, this is 15,000 times the recommended daily dose. (This is halved for maintenance dosage, so it would be 480mg). My vitamin B12 reading is 1100 HH, 400-700 is the normal range; I need more to function properly. Of course we all need individual dosages and the support of a nutritional psychiatrist or a naturopath or holistic doctor concerning the amounts in relation to your medications.
8 In Germany St Johns wort is prescribed as the number one antidepressant over conventional antidepressants. St Johns wort is remarkably safe. Compared with Prozac and other prescription antidepressants, it has a very low incidence of side effects. Reference, prominent psychiatrist Dr Hyla Cass, St Johns wort: Natures Blues Buster, pages 83-84.This is funding choices over health choices otherwise countries such as New Zealand would prescribe St Johns wort over antidepressants.
Studied extensively by Commission E, the scientific advisory panel to the German government. http://www.holistic-herbalist.com/St Johns wort.
9 Antidepressants (S.S.R.I’s) recycle the serotonin in your brain, with side effects.
The happy neurotransmitter (chemical messenger in the brain) serotonin is made from the amino acid tryptophan which is found in high protein foods such as chicken, fish, eggs, cheese. Also it’s worth supplementing with 5- HTP (a derivatitive of tryptophan, that is one step closer to serotonin) and derived from the African plant griffonia. This travels across your brain barrier faster. Tryptophan BUILDS new serotonin factories with no side effects. So is it not better to eat your self happy?
10 The gut produces 2/3’s of the bodies’ serotonin, the “happy neurotransmitter” so in essence you are feeding 2 brains. The right foods make you happy, the wrong foods
depressed. There is definitely a gut-brain connection. Reference Patrick Holford “Optimum Nutrition for the Mind”, page 13.
11 White sugar has around 90% of its nutrients stripped during the refining process. Eating excess refined sugar also uses up all of the B vitamins, magnesium and chromium during the digestion process further depleting you, many nutritionists call it deadly white poison.
Read your food labels, every known illness from asthma to cancer, arthritis, and heart disease are linked to sugar, as it weakens your immune system, and makes you more acidic. We get all the natural complex sugars we need in our diets from fruits and vegetables. Try molasses, (the nutrient rich matter from the first stage of sugar processing of sugar cane) stevia, (a natural plant sweetener) good quality honey, cinnamon, vanilla, ginger, and coconut.
Dates, pineapple, plums, bananas, strawberries, kumera, parsnips, pumpkins are other sweet ideas too.
12 Food is fuel for your body and mind not something to fill the gap. Fill it with junk food and you won’t function. Give yourself organic, natural unprocessed whole foods and you will feel alive and have energy. Optimum nutrition for optimum health!!!
I grew up in a white middle class family with one younger brother.
When I was growing up my mum fed us cheese, nuts and fruit for snacks instead of sweets which was great. I had milk and fruit juices as well as raspberry drinks, raro, lemonades. We did have red meat and 3 veggies, but it was more organic then you could taste it. We also ate puddings and biscuits, but they were often homemade.
My mum was very diet conscious, but in my teenage years I ate a lot of rubbish such as K.F.C, pizzas, chocolate cakes, ice-cream, and fish and chips. I was buying some of my own food as well as eating my mums home cooking.
I had periods of overeating and vomiting because I had just eaten too much. I had some issues with food back then; I went to Weight Watchers, though I wasn’t even overweight. I do remember consuming a lot of cow’s milk, ice-cream, cheese, cream as a teenager and I had continuous mucus in my throat. At the time I did not know that these foods were causing this. Many of us can have a hard time digesting cow’s milk as it is not designed for human beings. Many food allergies, intolerances and asthma are linked to cow’s milk, organic raw unpasteurised, unhomogenised full cream milk (from the farm!) can be better. I now have no cows’s milk except the little I have in my yoghurt. Yoghurt is easier to digest than cow’s milk, and it contains healthy cultures. I would eat soya yoghurt, but they put sugar in it!
Back in my early twenties I would be sitting and my nose would just start to drip, I couldn’t seem to stop this. I was very moody; actually I had been since the age of 17 especially when I had my menes. I was also a loner, but that was about the extent of my health issue at this time. I had cut off from my family as we weren’t getting along.
At 28 years of age I was fired from my job, and I lost the routine of going to work everyday. I think this was when my depression was triggered, however I did not know what was wrong with me until my only friend pointed this out. At the time I had been living in dumpy little bedsitters, now at least I live in a Housing N. Z home.
My doctor prescribed 5 antidepressants which I took over the months. None of them worked, even though I was on each of them a few months or so. The last one I tried gave me a massive bruise on my leg and my friend advised me to stop taking that otherwise I might get a blood clot. Taking medication did not worry me, I was not against medication, but they did not seem to help me. So here I was just really living with my symptoms WITHOUT medications. I would go to the doctors, but they wouldn’t be able to do anything to help me. Looking back I wish they had mentioned about nutritional support, so my healing could have started earlier.
Deep down I knew there was not much wrong with me, it was more that I did not have my health than I was “mentally unwell”. I used to wonder why, if it was a head problem, I would have physical symptoms as well?
Flu. I continually had the flu or I felt as if I was just 2 steps away from getting it again. I was always coughing even when I did not have the flu. I have not had a flu or head cold now for over 5 years. My immune system is so strong it can always fight back.
My skin was dry around my eyes. At one stage my skin had a greyish hue to it, I went and had an iron test done and the reading was 9 (10-30 is the normal range). I started eating more chicken, and my reading went up several points.
My skin had no colour to it, with time a healthy glow returned.
Another time I had a sore which just wouldn’t heal, I instinctively knew this was because I wasn’t in good health.
Cramps. I would always have cramps in my legs at night and terrible stomach cramps when I had my menses. Every month on the nutrients these have slowly disappeared. I know that magnesium and calcium are among 2 nutrients which help with relaxing your muscles.
Brain fog. When my menses came I would go into a brain fog for 5 days straight. I could not form a sentence or a thought. I had to be on my own then as I was so depressed. Physically this was the same, as I had to tuck up in bed for that whole 5 days as well. The energy was sucked out of me. Slowly I became better until I used to rest just for parts of the days on the bed. I can remember when I first went for a jog then, I nearly cried.
I AM CERTAINLY NOT IN BED ANYMORE!
Hiding in the house. For approximately 12 years, I hid at home not answering the door or phone for days on end. I would take it off the hook, and hide behind the curtains if people came. I used to go out just for basics and for walks. Some days I was not always like this and would talk to people.
I walked around for 15 years with my mouth turned down at the corners as I was so miserable.
Exhaustion. I was exhausted all the time, and would have to lean on the hand basin or sink when doing the washing up. I would be exhausted just from catching the bus.
Sometimes when I walked my feet would go “thud, thud”, I was so tired.
Sometimes it took me 3 days until I managed to get myself out to bring the washing in. I used to stress at night about putting the rubbish bin out the next day as I knew that was about all I could handle doing in a day. I used to get the bin out, but not bring it in at night. This is hard for me to relate to now as I whip the washing in and out in 5 mins, I am up and down stairs all day.
Concentration. I could not read more than a few lines of writing, because I was so tired I could not focus.
Trances. Lying on the bed in trances for parts of the day was probably one of my worst symptoms. When awake I felt I was in a walking trance which meant that I could not think straight e.g. I would forget to eat meals, or why I had come into a room.
Stress levels were very high, hence I was always yelling and screaming at people.
I was quite aggressive. I was always touching my face and hair, I was a nervous wreck.
Paranoia. I used to think people had stolen my wallet whenever I misplaced it, which was all the time. Whenever I went over the harbour bridge by bus, I used to think the bus was going to go into the water. I was very scared to go in lifts.
Dreams and violent thoughts. I would have dreams of being attacked by animals and people, and nightmares that I was always drowning in water. In my violent thoughts I would think about for e.g. horse’s heads being chopped off when awake. I have none of these thoughts now.
Obsessiveness. I was worried about touching objects such as window levers for fear of getting germs. I would wash my hands continuously. I am still a clean freak now, washing my hands longer than normal, but not to the extent I used to before.
Racy mind. My mind would race all over the place, and I would always butt into conversations much to my friends disdain. I would blurt things out that I know I should not have said. It was as if I could not control my mind. I could not seem to express myself properly and people would misunderstand me.
Indecisiveness. I just couldn’t make a decision about anything.
Confusion and muddleness. I always got street names and directions completely muddled up and become confused easily.
Lack of appetite. I used to have my subconscious telling me not to eat or to eat very little. One day all I ate was a banana, and I would often go 8 hours without food. With time on Empower my appetite seemed to become stimulated and my appetite increased. I know that zinc and B vitamins can help with this. I also did not have any appetite signals; they had completely disappeared, so I had never known if I had eaten too much or not enough. After 20 odd years my appetite signals have now reappeared. Sometimes I get over stressed and eat too much. However, I have found now after being on Empower that this has disappeared with time. Lack of appetite led to the next problem:
Lack of sleep. As I used to often go to bed hungry I could not get to sleep, and I would be up and down all night eating and then trying to get back to sleep. I would have 4, 5 or 6 hours sleep a night. Lack of sleep wears you down after years, – 8 hours was a treat. I was always counting how many hours sleep I had each night. I now sleep 8 hours a night and have energy to spend.
I used to shake because of my hunger, but I did not know at the time that was why. One time I thought someone was under my mattress shaking it, but it was me shaking. I would wake in the morning plastered in sweat because I had hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar levels). Of course it wasn’t just being hungry that deprived me of sleep, but it triggered it. The nutrients I was deficient in would have been a major problem as well. I had a happy feeling when I did eat. It was as if my blood sugar levels were going up. Again here is an important link between food and mood.
I only hallucinated once and that was because I had done 8 hours hard cleaning one day, (and 4 hours the day before) and I had not eaten all day. I thought my big black bag on the couch was the shape of a person for a second.
5 Health Food Shop
At the age of 38 I moved to the beautiful Whangaparoa Coast. By this time I thought my health and life were out of control. I was just plodding along from day to day. I thought to just keep going. I finished my relationship with my only friend and became very depressed. So I went and joined a support group for company up there, not even realising it was a mental health group. There I meet Ross a lovely Maori guy who I fell in love with. I weighed 132 kgs; I made an effort to lose weight and got down to 108kgs. I wanted to lose weight to be more attractive to him.
Ross suffered with schizophrenia which I knew nothing about, except for the recent film “Beautiful Mind” shown on TV, which was a nightmare of a movie in its portrayal of someone suffering with a health issue. Again this is the media for you.
I could not understand why Ross a young man of 38 was lying on the couch like an old person. I went to the library, looking for an answer and I took out a book called “Vitamin B3 and Schizophrenia: Discovery, recovery and controversy” by Dr Abram Hoffer. I could not help Ross as he was too unwell (stimulant use) and under the mental health system. He very soon ended up living on the streets of Auckland under bridges and at the City Mission. This was a real eye opener to me as I did not know people lived like this. I was brought up in Remuera. I walked around for 3 days trying to find him, (and I did), love! He loved me too.
I thought there might be something to the subject of this library book on nutrition which I was reading that could help me help myself. I went to Hardy’s Health store and the lovely assistant showed me an American book called “Prescription for Nutritional Healing” by James Balch M.D and Phyllis Balch C.N.C. The chapter depression and diet talked about eating natural whole foods and taking nutritional supplements. Fascinated, I knew I was on to something, I ran to the supermarket and threw in cans of fish, chicken, eggs, wholegrain oats, soya milk, brown rice and bread, olive oil, fruit and vegetables, pumpkin seeds, nuts, unsweetened yoghurt.
This was a real change from my usual highly processed and animal fat diet. I ate huge pieces of red meat, bacon, butter, cream, cheese, salami, sweetened yoghurt, white bread, rice and pasta, cakes and chocolate, and about 2 litres of Coco-Cola daily in the summer. I started drinking water, 2 glasses a day and then increasing it, this was a real shock to my taste buds after all that Coco- Cola! I started eating like this straight away. As it was such a sudden change, in the next day or two I noticed that colours seemed a lot brighter, and my mind felt a lot more alive. Although I have never taken hard drugs, I thought that the nutrients must have been hitting my brain cells with a drug like effect.
Another added bonus was that over the course of a year I lost 40 kgs, the weight just melted off. The first week I lost 3kgs, then 2kgs for the next few weeks till I was 68 kgs. While the weight loss made me psychologically a lot happier, I want to stress I was still chronically biochemically depressed. I also want to stress that I had lost this weight BEFORE I started on Empower. Some people think Empower is some sort of weight loss product – it isn’t. Although there are certainly some nutrients in there which could help you lose weight e.g. chromium. Even though I was not big anymore, I still was lying on the bed in trances, so I did not have any more energy. At least now though when I walked up a hill I could walk straight up, where before I would be stopping about 6 times to rest before I could continue, because of the extra weight.
At the Hardy’s Health store the week after my first visit they had had a free in store naturopath who gave me an iridology test (reading your eyes). Also a test with a little lap top computer from which they put wires on to you (I think this was a rife machine). She said I was lacking in all the B vitamins, magnesium, omega 3, coenzyme Q10 and I had a sluggish liver, which was not surprising considering my diet for the last 20 years. I bought some basic vitamin and minerals tablets and took the receipts to WINZ; alas they would not pay for them.
I went to a practising naturopath and had a quote written up for WINZ. This included hair analysing for nutritional deficiencies and toxic overload, food allergies I might have and the price for supplements that I would probably need. Again, unfortunately WINZ were not prepared to pay for this because they found hair analysing was too “out there”.
7 Body Balance.
By this time I had moved into the bottom flat of Jan’s house. Jan became my best friend. She suffers with Bipolar and rapid cycles 3 weeks (depression) and 3 weeks (mania), and this is a hell of a life. After lying in bed for 3 weeks not doing anything Jan would have to catch up with friends, chores etc when her high came around. Then when she had done this her low would come again. In mania she would spend 3 or 4 nights in a row without sleep. In depression she just spent this time catching up on sleep and resting from her excessive activity.
Jan describes her medications as torture. As well as the fact they only worked to a degree. Jan was also into nutrition.
A friend of Jan’s was selling Body Balance which is a colloidal (suspended in liquid, to make it 99% bio available to the body) tonic from the sea. Body Balance contained vitamins, minerals and amino acids. It even contained the mineral salt lithium, but in low doses and in the organic form, not the harsh form the doctors give you. Jan swore the Body Balance saved her life one time when curled up in depression she could not eat an old carrot out of the fridge. She took Body Balance and said it got her out of depression.
I ordered some through a doctor which WINZ thankfully paid for, and I started taking 2 capfuls a day. After a while I realised it was not working for me. About 6 months later I decided to try it again, this time I took 4 capfuls and yes, it was making me feel a lot less depressed. However, I needed something a lot stronger.
About this time the skin on my face started to weep pus, it oozed out. For about 6 months this went on, it was horrible. Thankfully this finally stopped. I did not know what was causing this, but Jan said it was the toxins from my unhealthy diet of 20 years being excreted. Jan and I read a book from the library called “Optimum Nutrition for the mind” by Patrick Holford. When I first read this book it was too scientific for me to understand, however I did get the general gist of what this was about. This book blows me away! I have since read this book about 6 times and it is now like a bible to me. Patrick researches all of the latest information from around the world from expert doctors, psychiatrists, researchers and scientists. He goes through this and writes books (30 so far) and gives talks. He is also the founder of the prestigious Institute for Optimum Nutrition in the U.K. Patrick is backed by research and clinical experience of nearly 30 years and is a psychologist.
Jan’s psychiatrist, Dr Allen Fraser (Royal College of Australian and New Zealand
Psychiatrists) had met a Dr Bonnie Kaplan when she came to New Zealand about the year 2000. Dr Bonnie Kaplan is an independent behavioural and Empower researcher from the University of Calgary in Canada.
Dr Allen Fraser told Jan about Empower, so Jan and I downloaded all of the information off the computer. We had hundreds and hundreds of pages across the living room floor which we numbered and put into our own folders, this cost me $70 in photocopying. Jan (who is a scientist) and I made up tables comparing the nutritional content of Body Balance and Empower. Empower is 10 to 20 times stronger and in many cases some of the nutrients in Empower just weren’t in Body Balance. We watched the Empower DVD, but I was a little sceptical about it as these people who said they were getting better were from overseas and I thought they could have been acting. I suffered from some paranoia as well then, which did not help me in believing this. However, the more I read about people changing their lifestyles, taking supplements and curing their mental health issues, the more I became excited. There are over 600 references in scientific journals linking mental illness with nutritional deficiencies. The distributors of Empower came to N.Z in Dec 2003, however I did not know about this until months later when a friend said he had been listening to radio pacific. Empower was now available in N.Z through Strauss Herbs. Interestingly, Strauss Herbs are also quite well known for their heart drops.
10 WINZ/Disability Allowance
By June 2004 I had organised through WINZ a Disability Allowance of $54 a week, which they approved of because of Empower’s scientific backing. Their trials had been published in 5 psychiatric journals with very promising results. I was lucky that I did not have any other costs on the D.A e.g. lawns, phone, and I just had to put in $6 a week of my own money. A bottle costs $120 and lasts 2 weeks on full loading dosage which I am still on 6 years later. Maintenance dosage is 7-8 a day when you are symptom free, which I am not on yet only because of my menses.
I had Jan’s psychiatrist approve Empower for Strauss Herbs and WINZ. Dr Laurie Jo Moore was American and she said in her twang “these vitamins are not in high amounts, we take lots of vitamins in America’’.
I was lucky as well, because I wasn’t on conventional medications, so I would not have the withdrawal symptoms of coming off these, although this can be managed quite significantly with amino acids.
I remember I was still a little sceptical, taking the nutritional support and believing it was going to work, so this was not the placebo effect.
I took 3 pills the first day, and quickly built up in a week to the recommended at that time 18 pills a day (now 15 is the recommended amount as it is now more bio available).
In fact to be honest I did not think Empower was working, as nothing was happening for the first 3 months, and then I noticed small subtle changes such as I did not seem to be so tired or confused anymore. How I really noticed Empower was working for me was with my menses, every month I gained more energy. I do not have a heavy menses, but because of my massive deficiencies they drain me so much. This was a slow healing process – with time I would start to lie on the bed for just parts of the day, now, not at all. The brain fog over the years has lessened and lessened too, until it’s just slight now.
Jan started on the Empower just 4 months after me. She said she took the Empower, and then went to bed feeling like a 90 year old woman and when she awoke the next day she felt like a 9 year old child. Jan’s cycles soon lengthened to 6 weeks up and 6 weeks down (from 3 weeks up and 3 weeks down) which is incredible. Her highs and lows became more of a blended even mood. I liked those moods. Jan eventually discontinued Empower, because she hated the pills as they reminded her of psychiatric pills. They certainly worked to a large extent, and they can be taken as a powder. Jan had to go back on her medications as the nutrients were not strong enough for her.
In her high, Jan wants to again take them now; however her psychiatrist wants to look at the trials more. Her psychiatrist is actually breaking the Medical Counsel Statement by not letting her take Empower; I think he is just being cautious in a good way. Any blood test would show deficiencies as do her symptoms. There is also a free zinc taste test from some chemists which is very accurate in testing zinc levels.
Jan could make some changes to her diet which would have a big effect on her health.
I heard of a lady who had bipolar, and changed her diet to a raw vegetarian one and cured herself! I would hate to think what she ate before! This is without taking any supplements as well.
I try to eat raw food; approximately 70% of my diet is raw.
About 5 years ago I started to eat vast quantities of food e.g. whole chickens for dinner; I was horrified as I put on 25 kgs. This went on for six months, and then my appetite returned to normal. I believe I was trying to get my nutrients from my food-this was just part of my healing process.
I remember feeling whole, happy and complete about this time. I used to do something called the Empower dance. I would jump up and down and yell “I am cured; I am cured on vitamins and minerals”. I would tell every one at the bus stop, where ever I would go.
12 My mother
In May 2006 I learned that my mother had cancer and was dying. To be closer to her I moved to the North Shore so my brother could take me to the Waikato Hospital. Unfortunately the day after I moved down there, she died. I was asking the staff to use large doses of vitamin C on my mother, but nobody was very interested. One of the nurses said this can cause diarrhoea in the elderly. I now know that this is just a sign you should lower the dosage for the person to a tolerable bowel level. My mothers said she would do it the doctor’s way and then try the Vitamin C. Sadly; my mother was so weak after the conventional treatments that she was not eating and barely sipping water. My mum’s skin cancer started 17 years earlier. She should have done something to help herself back then. My mother may have left preventative treatment too late. When I think of all that lipstick that my mother swallowed over the years and all the hairspray she would spray, and other chemical toiletries…And my mum scoffed at organic foods thinking I was wasting my money.
I know they killed her with their toxic methods (radiotherapy) surgery, and by denying her nutritional support.
I was holding her hand and crying mum please do not die. Even though they said she did not know I was there, I was sure she could sense me. It was such a sad time for my father of course; he was very supportive to my brother and I, though he had not slept properly for weeks. My dad read a poem to us at the hospital which said to grieve is to have loved, which helped a little.
Mum had a simple funeral; she was into tramping and had some boots by the casket.
Why is it that when people are dying or die every one sends cards, flowers? My dad was so drained he could not reply straight away to everyone’s kindness. There are always those very practical people of course who turn up with casseroles, baking etc and offer to do the housework.
I came home a few days later. I had not seen my mother, except recently, for 20 years so I could cope with her death.
13 Invalids Benefit.
Back to my life on the North Shore. I thought I was so well by now, because I was comparing myself to how sick I was before. I made the silly mistake of going off the Invalids Benefit onto the Sickness Benefit too early. I lost $45 a week, changing onto the sickness benefit and the chance to do any courses except free little ones like the TOP courses. I cannot understand the logic of WINZ making you $45 less well off if you are getting better. This just puts financial stress on you.
Also, when people are on the sickness benefit and want to go back to work does it not make better sense that these are the people that have about $5000 a year eligibility for doing courses, instead of the people on the Invalids Benefit, who are in worse health than sickness beneficiaries? I tried to get back on the Invalids Benefit, but of course I had been going to the doctors telling them how well I was which was the truth. They were telling me how well I seemed too, and wouldn’t change my benefit back again.
Over the years my thinking has become so much clearer and I feel I can relate to people now, although I can be stressed and nervous inside. This could also be because of my low self esteem and confidence though. About 3 years ago I was feeling so well that I decided to cut down from 15 Empower a day to 10, and I was feeling fine for a few weeks, then my menses came, and I had no reserves and I felt exhausted, depressed and strange again. This gave me a big scare as it reminded me how reliant I was on the nutrients. However, it also gave me the confidence to really believe in how I needed this natural medicine.
I HAVE HAD NO SIDE EFFECTS EVER IN THE 6 YEARS I HAVE TAKEN THESE NUTRIENTS.
I have tried omega 3 pills, for about 8 months. However, I felt that they did not help me personally. I have heard you need to take a top reputable brand. With supplements you pay for what you get, and I was buying a cheap brand. I do eat a lot of fresh salmon and canned sardines. I even tried coenzyme Q10 pills which I did find finally tuned my mind; I even lost a couple of kgs on them. This nutrient is like the spark plug in a car and it gives us energy. The Japanese take them for longevity. I had to stop for financial reasons.
Like most things it is better to try and get nutrients from your food first. Eric used to tell me to go and squeeze 10 New Zealand spray free lemons or oranges a day, – before I took extra vitamin C supplements.
I visited a lovely student naturopath, Katie from Wellpark College of Natural Therapies. We had a holistic 1 and ½ hours first consultation for only $20 and a couple of ½ hour follow ups. The only tests Katie gives are iridology and zinc taste tests. I gave her a hug after the first time that’s how much I felt warmed by her. She gave me some great dietary tips.
In October 2007 I had my story in the front page of the North Shore Times; I was holding an apple and Empower pills in the other hand. I was very proud of that story, and thankfully the reporter wrote exactly what I had said. I had 13 people call me; they wanted someone to talk to who understood them. One young woman has become one of my best friends.
I gave a talk in 2008 at an A.U.T psychology department class in Northcote. This was such a buzz for me; I was so excited that they wanted to listen to me. There was a time when I hid from people. The tutor even uses my 2 page story as a case study.
I wanted to make a special note of how this has helped me. Although it did not cure me as I have always exercised; once I was on the foundation of nutrients I found going for a walk or jog or dancing took away my feelings of low self-esteem. As well once those endorphins kicked in I felt so happy, and as if I could take on the world for the day.
I heard of a guy who in mania would do really hard physical exercise to exhaust himself. I know that there is nothing better than having a good sleep because you are worn out even if your legs are aching!
15 Food and Mood
I cannot recall exactly when I met Adrienne; however it would have being at a mental health meeting. We clicked and years later decided to start doing Food and Mood workshops. These were created by Amanda Geary from the U.K. Amanda Geary is a former registered nutritionist and founder of the Food and Mood project. Amanda received a Millennium Award from MIND, the U.K’s leading mental health charity for this highly successful Food and Mood project. We facilitated 2-3 hour workshops which we did for consumers at supported accommodation, support groups and for staff. Everyone loved them, and it was such a good feeling spreading the word on healing. The 11 basic questions are on:
Drinking water? – water is essential for the transport and elimination of toxins and absorption of nutrients. Dehydration affects your ability to think clearly and to concentrate. Drinking 6-8 glasses of water is recommended daily.
Oily fish? – brain cells need “oiling” with essential unsaturated fats if they are to communicate properly with each other. Eat mackerel, sardines, salmon, herring, trout, and pilchards 2-3 times weekly.
Artificial additives? – a rapid change in behaviour within minutes or hours after eating additive-containing foods or drinks. Be suspect of colouring such as tartrazine (E102), flavour enhancers such as monosodium glutamate (MSG or E621), artificial sweeteners such as aspartame (E951), preservatives such as sulphur dioxide (E220) and BHT (E321).
Caffeine withdrawal symptoms? – caffeine is a stimulant; long term affect can be adrenal exhaustion and dependency on caffeine. Try cutting down and see if this helps. Healthy alternatives can be herbal teas, roast barley, chicory, dandelion, (coffee substitutes) small pieces of dark chocolate, carob (a caffeine-free chocolate alternative from the carob bean).
Did not have breakfast? – eating breakfast is an important meal for establishing an even blood-sugar ride through the rest of the day. Good mood foods include porridge, wholegrain cereals, “live yoghurt” with fresh or dried fruits, nuts and seeds.
Eating live yoghurt? – (for digestion) the state of your mind is closely related to the state of your digestive system. Try eating “live” yoghurt containing the cultures ABC
acidophilus, bifidus, casei.
Five a day? – (fruit and vegetables) – specific phytonutrients (plant nutrients) are essential to mental health. Eat at least 5 portions (one is a handful) of fruits and vegetables daily to see how you feel from a rainbow of colours.
Has food intolerance? – takes time for a reaction to take place.
Has a food allergy? – the reaction is usually immediate, severe and never changes.
These both can contribute to a wide range of physical and mental health symptoms. Common culprits are wheat (bread, pasta, pizza, cakes and biscuits), dairy (milk, cheese, yoghurt, butter) yeast (bread, cheese, yeast extract, wine, beer).
Discover alternatives e.g. rice, rye, pumpernickel, cornbread, buckwheat, spelt (an older form of wheat with much less gluten) chickpea, millet, potato, soya.
We also liked to touch on super foods which will really lift your moods e.g. bananas, broccoli, avocadoes, blueberries.
Adrienne ran the course and I assisted. To be honest back then I was so unwell, I do not know how I managed to do this; of course I was a lot better than I was, however you must remember that nutritional support is a healing process. It takes time to build up from your massive nutritional deficiencies.
One of the consumers wanted to know what Adrienne and I ate for energy. For me this is foods like fruit and vegetables, eggs, fish, avocadoes, eggplants, mussels, lentil dhal, hummus, organic chicken, kidneys, kidney beans, buckwheat, brown rice, quinoa (pronounced keenwa), mung beans, brazil nuts, sun flower seeds, potatoes, pumpkin, kumara, pure filtered water. I like to cover salads in herbs, sea salt and lemon juice.
I have an addiction to Bio Farms organic honey and Cyclops Greek yoghurt. This is better than ice –cream. I only eat a little as it’s very fattening. Dried figs and prunes can take care of those sweet cravings, but just a couple – they are very concentrated.
Some people call me a health freak, and this offends me as I am just eating the foods that our bodies were designed to eat. My health is my number one priority and I do not care about my food bill. I save though because I do not eat ice cream, biscuits, red meat, cakes and I only drink water. Interestingly enough, organic food might cost more however; it is alot higher in nutrients, so you eat less. Can you put a price on preventing a health issue one day? is the way I think of this.
Many people have to fill themselves up on vast quanties of white bread, pasta, meat, dairy products to be satisfied. That was me too until I discovered good health! I now eat vast quantities of fruit and vegetables as we should. Eating this way I know I am not just making myself physically be in good health. It also gives me a psychological boost by knowing I am feeding myself “live” food full of enzymes and life healing properties. I have also noticed that I seem to be looking really young these days; I have also slowed down my aging process!
The last workshop that Adrienne and I would do was on clinical nutrition. We would show a film called Masks of Madness- Science of Healing. This is put out by the International Schizophrenia Foundation and is narrated by Margot Kidder who played Lois Lane in the superman movies. She had bipolar and used the orthomolecular approach herself with success. The movie has consumers, nutritionists, psychiatrists, and doctors in this field talking.
My hope is that the Food and Mood workshops will become part of the mental health system.
16 Will’s healing
Three years ago in May 2007, I spotted a lovely looking Maori guy who had moved into my apartment block. I did not want to go and knock on his door and say welcome to the neighbourhood as a way of meeting him, that’s not my style. I just waited until I saw him and said welcome in the hall. One time I saw him on his balcony and I gave him a wave, he looked petrified. I found out from his flat mate he had schizophrenia. She told me he was very spiritual. The first thing I did when I met him was say that I had depression, and I had cured myself and that schizophrenia can be cured too. I was jumping up and down so much because I was so excited to tell him. Actually I was just trying to impress him with my knowledge. He said later that he did not even catch my name then. I knew he liked me because he would stare at me in the eyes; I was rather flattered since Ross had gone back to his old girlfriend. Actually, he looked just like Ross complete with Maori moko on the nostril. That was probably some of the attraction, his resemblance.
I do not know how to put this in a nice way other than to say that Will was completely mad when I first met him, and looking after him for the last 2 and ½ years has been a nightmare. Again, this was amazing considering I could only just look after myself years ago.
Will was madder because he was blowing his brains out on marijuana every day when I first met him. It did not mellow him out, it made him aggressive, paranoid and confused. He would also babble on for hours and I could not get him to go to sleep normal hours. He would come and go all night waking me all the time. After a year or two of this I told him I could not take anymore and I would leave him if he did not stop his marijuana use. He would lock himself out of his apartment and have to climb up the balcony to let himself in. He would stare in the mirror for ages. This was a real sign his schizophrenia was triggered. He was so out of it he would sit there incapable of cooking dinner and when he did he would spill everything everywhere, and he would not make the bed or bring in the washing.
I was even so desperate on a couple of occasions I visited the tinnie houses in the area
and told them not to sell marijuana to him as it was making him unwell and he could end up in hospital. Talking to these types of people was a nightmare!
Eventually he did cut down to just once a week and then it was just once in a blue moon. This made a big difference to his moods and mine!!
The other problems were that Will would stay up all night chain smoking cigarettes and drinking Coco- Cola. He would have no sleep, which made him aggressive as well. I could understand Will’s aggression because of my own illness; some of our symptoms were similar.
I did some Food and Mood on him. Coco-Cola has a staggering 42 teaspoons of sugar in a 2 litre bottle. It is also high in caffeine which is a stimulant. Will was addicted to this as well as to the 17 large mugs of coffee he had, each with 5 teaspoons of sugar, (yes that’s a staggering nearly 100 teaspoons of sugar a day). This is not including the Coco -Cola or his sugar in food. Will started to drink gallons of water when I first met him which was great; he said it was detoxing him. He eventually changed from coffee to black tea then to Milo which is also full of caffeine and sugar. He has gone back to black tea with less sugar. We tried him on better forms of sugar, and even stevia.
One time he went and bought an $18 jar of top quality honey and he used it up in a day. Will has also lost a massive amount of weight because of so much less sugar.
He started drinking orange juice replacing the Coco- Cola which was a real blessing.
Now he just drinks water. Will used to be an alcoholic for 15 years and though he isn’t now there were times when he would buy 18 cans of beer and drink them one in a row until he would fall asleep. He was like a child with lollies, he had no control.
Again, I was desperate and I would go the neighbours and pick up the box of beer and say you have had enough and hide it. It doesn’t help that our neighbourhood is full of drunks and druggies. Eventually he has really cut down and will only have a few in a row now. Once in frustration, and worn out I threw a box of beer cans over the balcony. I know this was not the way to handle it, but I saw he was just sitting on the couch like a vegetable after drinking for 4 days straight. I know that alcohol depletes you of nearly every known nutrient from your mind and body.
When I first met Will his schizophrenic voices would tell him to only eat once a week. He would get to 4 days and have to eat because he was so starving. Unfortunately, it was a greasy pie, or cake or some fatty pork, or at home white bread and noodles.
He used to eat with me the types of foods I ate and he had become a lot better. He loves Tofu! I raved on about blood sugar levels and energy and how he needed to eat regularly. A lot of the issue was he was just too lazy to cook. Now thankfully he eats two meals every day. His lack of appetite of course is also caused by his chain smoking about 40 cigarettes a day. I detest smoking and this is why we have now broken up and remain just friends.
It is a bit different than a normal person who smokes cigarettes. With Will the problem is also that the smoking actually triggers his psychosis and stops him from curing his schizophrenia. He will chain smoke for hour’s non-stop and then he starts talking like crazy. Will has a personality change when he does not smoke, he laughs and jokes and is very calm. Smoking makes him tired and depressed. I was hoping that once he stopped smoking his appetite would return and then by eating he would get some more nutrients in himself. I do, believe Will will stop one day; he has tried on a couple of occasions. A few of Will’s teeth have already fallen out because of his massive vitamin C and other deficiencies. So he already has scurvy, a deficiency disease. When I first meet Will I was trying to get organic carrot juices into him, it has not worked very well…
I even rang up ASH and told them, they where not aware of psychosis, logically though we know smoking causes lung and heart disease, why would it not do the same to the brain? This is because it creates nutritional defiencies especially vitamin C. Pronounced vitamin C deficiency makes you go crazy as reported by Professor Derri Shtasel from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine in Philadelphia. D.Shtasel et al psychiatry services vol 46 (3) march 1995 p 293. Low zinc is implicated in schizophrenia. Reference Patrick Holford “Optimum Nutrition for the Mind” pages 55-56.
As well because of his sugar intake Will has something called toxic tongue where his tongue is coated in bacteria which have a white appearance. He has candida, a yeast overgrowth of sugar in his gut. Will has bad breath because of this and his smoking.
Will and I could not even kiss; it was that bad for me, even after he did much teeth cleaning. With the use of all these stimulants I wondered why Will did not just pass out. He is always lying on the bed sleeping and sitting around though. Will gets his schizophrenia confused with his spirituality. He is scared if he goes on Empower that he won’t be spiritual anymore. He links hearing the voices with his Maori mana. Will thinks he has special power with the weather and the Wairua (spirit, soul) of the land. The point is he doesn’t talk about the weather and 3000 epileptic children dying anymore, as when I first met him. So I would say this is more because of his marijuana use.
Will is a beautiful person from the Hokianga harbour; he has family on the North Shore. He just sits in his flat all day because he doesn’t really like going out, except to walk down the road to buy his milk, cigarettes etc.
I have finally realised that Will will heal in his own time when, and if he is ready and that I should worry more about myself. He has given me a lot of love and we will always be special friends. My feelings for Will have gone from love to absolute hatred, and anger and frustration. His drug use (I include sugar and caffeine in this) was just too much (because of his moods) for me to be around because of my own mental wellbeing.
After nearly 3 years I was physically and emotionally drained. I have some hatred for his mental health workers as well as they gave him a clean slate of health and say he has always been able to look after himself. I should have never burdened myself with him. I think mental health should have paid me for looking after him since they failed to with the right biochemical support. They are now however open to having him on Empower, so they are changing their ways too.
17 Devonport Gardens/Organic foods
In August 2008 I started at the Framework Devonport Organic Gardens, where I have learnt about organic gardening. Consumers have their own gardens, and bring home our produce. Healthy soil, healthy food, healthy people, healthy planet are the green philosophy there. The staff gives us a lot of support and set goals to help us go back to work. This is not bad considering I have not been well enough to work for 17 years. For ages before I started at the gardens, I wanted to go there, however I just could not initially cope with this work type situation. I am now doing a computer course, volunteering at the hospice shop and I am looking for paid part -time work.
Food and Mood workshops are my ultimate passion and Challenge Trust (a holistic mental health organisation) are interested in me doing one next year.
I buy some of my organics from the Takapuna markets too, and it’s not dear. Beautiful Pacific rose apples for between $1.50 and $3.00 depending upon the season, lemons $2.00 a kilo, tomatoes for $2 a bag, veggies e.g. broccoli $1-2 a head.
Luckily enough I buy free-range chickens from the supermarket for only $10,I buy them just before the use by date as they mark them down by half price.
So again, here I have looked after Will for 2 and ½ years and I was also supporting another friend for many hours a week. I was also spending many hours a week helping to make the suburb I live in a safer place to live, as the social organisations failed to. They ran a pilot programme which protected the criminals and not the victims. They also lied about what was happening here so they could keep getting funding from the government. They tried to make out this was a very low crime area. Every one knows Northcote Central is notorious. I spent about 9 months doing this, unpaid. I felt I had to though, as I was so depressed by living here and could not handle the youth crimes, burnt cars, intimidations, and one man was lucky not to die from being beaten. It has really quietened down now, the Police, Housing N.Z and Council take the credit for this though! Reference, put out by the Council and governance groups. “Northcote Child and Youth Devolvement programme 2005”.
Although only on Empower for 6 years I feel like it’s about 20 years ago as it’s very hard for me to remember what I felt like before, again my menses only giving me an inkling. I would have a voice inside my head saying “you are mad, you are mad” at this time! Hopefully I will get some other treatment which will help. I would like to have my mercury fillings taken out as I know that they are toxic to your neurological system. One lady I know was labelled Bipolar and she has a mouth full of mercury. She had mercury poisoning which used to make the top hatters go crazy, when they shone up their top hats with mercury.
Mercury is one of the most toxic elements in the world and they put it in our mouths! The University of Calgary has a film linking mercury with dendrite (branch of a nerve cell) damage.
So now I feel I can take on the world, when I once hid from life. I am full of energy and life and vitality, because of nutritional medicine. In some ways I feel like I am only 25 years old and that I have lost 20 years of my life. I have also probably lost out on a chance of having children. When you do not have your health or any friends and now I have them both in abundance, you feel rich. I now have an opportunity to educate and inspire other people. Once, I had a little cry thinking what would have happened if I had not gone to the health food shop and they had put me on the right track. My message to anyone with a health issue is not to give up hope and that you can heal and be happy and have a full life. If I had started on biochemical support years earlier when I started to get unwell, I am sure I would have healed a lot faster. I must remember that taking 6 years to heal when I have been unwell for 23 years is not a long time. Physically I am very healthy, with a cholesterol level of 3, and my heart rate is 54 beats pm. My blood pressure is 100/58. I feel like I will live to 100, I am so healthy.
18 My Future
My future is looking very bright. My 250 word abstract was accepted for the Building Bridges conference to be held in Wellington in April 2010. I will be giving a ½ hour talk on my healing and showing the Empower DVD in the other room. The conference is expected to have 400 mental health consumers and staff over 3 days.
I am really excited about this. I am pleased that there is a lady talking about yoga straight after me. It is good to see the holistic way coming. These conferences are a great way to talk to people. Adrienne and I attended the Nutters (what a horrible word) conference in 2006. We handed out 160 pamphlets out of 170 people!
I just found out that I was not granted full scholarship, to the Building Bridges Conference because of lack of funding for travel and accommodation. The funding is just for registration fees to the conference, and so I won’t be going. I will reapply in three years time, when Building Bridges comes to Auckland.
I am not concerned about studying this year. I would love to do the Diploma of Nutrition at Wellpark College. At the moment I have enough basic knowledge to talk to consumers who I really want to help, and I feel confident enough to be able to run the Food and Mood workshops on my own now. I want to keep doing public speaking to build up my confidence and social skills.
There is not much use me studying if the Drug Companies ban supplements and there isn’t anything to give people. They have already done this in Germany and The European Commission under Codex wants to ban or lower nutrients totally world wide. Organic food is even under threat as it does not use chemical sprays made by the pharmaceutical/fertiliser industries, and it is densely rich in nutrients which keep illnesses abay.
We are not even allowed to say an apple a day keeps the doctor away as it has therapeutic claims.
I sent my story to Dr Jonathan Coleman my local National M.P and he returned saying he did not realise deficiencies caused these problems, and thanking me. I met him again at election time, (2008) and I gave his lovely wife Sandra, Autumn Stringams book “Promise of Hope”. I talked to John Key for a second and told him about what happened to me and that pharmaceutical drugs kill 1500 people in N.Z every year. He looked uncomfortable and said people have to die of something. I said not of the medicines which are supposed to heal you. At least National believes in competition between companies, (e.g. natural health and drug) so National is against the anti-vitamin bill. Dr Jonathan Coleman is also friends of Dr Glenn Twentyman, something to do with coaching rugby.
When I walk down the street I do feel pretty special, like the future of medicine. We all need to take responsibility for our own health and heal when we are ready. When I was unwell I used to have a big problem with never knowing if I had overreacted to what people had said or not, because I did not know if it was my illness or my personality. I am quite a sensitive person and I have high morals and values, which does not help, but at least now I know my feelings are all mine and all real.
Again, if it wasn’t for nutritional support I know that I would still be lying on the bed in a trance. They are like my foundation, although I still have to work out my life with where I live, work, relationships, and family. For years I did not want to be around my nephew, who I dearly love because I thought I was too much of a weirdo. He is 11 and I am just getting to know him now. I just know that I could work out very little of my life before.
19 The future of mental health in New Zealand
Many of the consumers are very interested in what Adrienne and I have to say. I have noticed a real change over the last year or so. Consumers want to have a say in their treatment. There are some other very holistic mental health organisations such as Challenge Trust. They are sending consumers to Dr Glenn Twentyman. Dr Twentyman prescribes Empower from the Manurewa marae and Living Proof in town. Although getting permission from your own doctor first is best, as they know you and your history.
Here in New Zealand we have a very good regulatory model in place to make natural health products safer and to the highest standards. We are set to become world leaders in functional foods and natural health.

Weston was a dentist who studied our rural tribes around the world untouched by the outside world, they were all very robust. After years of study he found they are in remarkable good health, with good teeth free from decay. After considering many factors he soon found that they all had one thing in common: their diets. Eating the whole animal raw including the organ meat e.g. heart, liver. They soaked their grains, nuts and seeds. They ate fermented foods and beverages e.g. whey, kefir.
Their diet included an abundance of live enzymes, probotics, vitamins A and D, high in saturated and omega fats. These people had no doctors, dentists or police because everyone was virtually free of disease and well behaved!
There is a serious error of omission in the blog titled “The Financial Trigger To Decimate Big Pharma Stock Value Is In Place”
This error essentially diminishes a 180 day time period into a ninety day one.
The copy that was accidentally omitted was:
“after my video material reaches the Internet”
Using the “marking sign” of *** on each end of the copy ommitted I have corrected this in the following paragraph:
My “best guess” here is “by more than one hundred billion dollars” within a matter of three months after my video material is widely disseminated for free on multpile video sites on the Internet. My “best guess” may admittedly be way off the mark. This loss of aggregate domestic drug company stock value within a ninety day (90) period ***after my video material reaches the Internet*** may be more than triple this (greater than Three Hundred Billion Dollars).
I could not correct the above error myself, due to the fact that drug company funded hackers seem to be repeatedly preventing me from doing so.
My ability in general to use my WordPress site is SEVERELY compromised at the moment, and in multiple ways. This is compromise that I am certain is “due to hacking”.
Big Pharma is freaking out!!! over what I am doing on the Internet. This current hacking episode bespeaks of their desperation. I am “slowly turning the screws” with my blogs and other efforts, and it is killing them.
As I said many times before… One of us has to go down.
I wonder what the future will bring in the next 90 days while I work on my video material… video material that “really hurts” Big Pharma’s aggregate stock value.
This blog has been replaced by an upgraded one titled “The Financial Trigger To Crush Big Pharma -Upgraded- (10-17-2010)”.

***Note: This blog is being written in here. It is going to be quite a mess for the time that I am working on it. When I complete this blog to my satisfaction, this note will be removed. Allen***
The next three months are all very critical months. These months are critical in regard to the war I have decided today to call “Big Pharma Vs. Allen Darman”.
Not only are the next three months “critical in aggregate”, each individual month is “critical on its own”.
This particular blog represents “the initial status report” in regard to this war between Big Pharma and I. It is dated. “(10-14-2010)”
A month from today, on or about November 15th, another “status report” in regard to the war between Big Pharma and I will be posted in here. It will be titled the same as this blog word-wise (“Big Pharma Vs. Allen Darman”). And it will be dated in a similar to the above (11-15-2010).
The resultant title in regard to the above will be as follows:
“Big Pharma Vs. Allen Darman (11-15-2010)”
A month later another blog will be posted with a title as follows:
“Big Pharma Vs. Allen Darman (12-15-2010)”
And a month after this will come the blog:
“Big Pharma Vs. Allen Darman” (1-15-2011)
These four blogs will cover the entire critical time period (the next three months) in regard to the war between Big Pharma and I.
Regardless of my receiving (1) ANY of “the sorely needed fiscal help”, or (2) ANY of “the sorely needed collaborative help”, or (3) “a live-in female helper” that can put up with my heavy cigarette habit, has a high IQ, and is familiar with the use of a computer… in the next ninety days I am really going to “really hurt Big Pharma”… or a drug company that falls under the umbrella of Big Pharma is going to “really hurt me”.
In the next ninety (90) days, I am going to “really hurt Big Pharma” with the “Power Of Truth”, and “The Power Of Words” that I will be generating (or have already done so).
And in each individual month of these next three months, I am going to “really hurt Big Pharma” with the “Power Of Truth”, and “The Power Of Words” that I will be generating (or have already done so) as well.
In addition to the above, over the next ninety days, AND during each individual month of this time, I am going to “really hurt Big Pharma” WITH WHERE I SPREAD the “Power Of Truth”, and “The Power Of Words” that I will be generating (or have already done so).
This power of truth, and this power of words, is most probably going to have the CEO OF EVERY SINGLE DRUG COMPANY in the Fortune 500 scheduling more than one meeting during the next ninety days “with the same topic” as its primary agenda.
The topic of the meetings referred to in the above will be: “What can we do to stop Allen Darman from doing what he is doing on the Internet?”.
I am not only going to be discussed in the meetings mentioned above, over the next ninety days I am going to be discussed in the boardrooms of every major drug company in America as well. (This assumes I am still alive.)
If the truth was actually known, I already have been discussed in numerous drug company meetings, and in many of these drug company corporate boardrooms, for a number of years, and for numerous times. (In my humble opinion, these are both certainties.)
To be continued in a bit…
This blog is a critical one for me. This is because it is a resume of sorts… or at least a part of one.
Incidentally, this blog represents strongly suggests that I have a work ethic second to none, and that I have at least some degree of genius. (Both of my parents had some degree of genius. Out of the seven children that they had, I was the most gifted in regard to math, science, and logical thinking.)
I spent the time needed to tell the story of my tenure as President of Darman Mfg. today.
I did this because my credibility is so important in regard to what I am trying to do at the moment.
I felt that perhaps my work history with Darman Mfg. might help with this (my credibility).
[Darman Manufacturing Company can be found on the Internet at http://darmanco.com/.]
I hope that you (the reader) gain some insight in regard to what my potential and my capabilities are when you read the story that follows.
The Story Of Darman Manufacturing Company, Inc. During My Tenure As Its 2/3rd Majority Stockholder and President
I have done a business start-up before in my life… or almost done so.
“Almost” in the above means that I did not have to start a business from scratch. I revived a business that was dying, and was dying for quite some time.
In 1983, for $100,000 I bought a dying manufacturing company with (1) an obsolete product, (2) an old plant and equipment, and (3) an almost empty bank account.
I bought this business from my father Arthur Darman.
[Arthur Darman had bought Darman Mfg. Company from his father Joseph Darman’s estate in the late 1960’s when he died. Joseph Darman, an immigrant from Malta who spoke no English, and had no money when he arrived at Ellis Island in about 1910, was its founder (after soon buying out a funding partner). Joseph Darman was a very gifted man, and was known to be a genius by many that knew him.]
My start at Darman Mfg. Company was not an auspicious one. In the twelve years prior to my taking the reins, my father had fired me three times, and I had quit three times out of anger and frustration as well. (At least we were even in this regard when I bought the company from him.)
Darman Mfg. Company was purchased from my father without a dime of my own money (as I had none). It was purchased by the company mortgaging its paid-for-building for $50,000 (an amount immediately handed to my father), and a $50,000 promissory note at no interest paid out monthly for five years. (I paid my father $833.33 for the next sixty months, and paid the mortgage as well. These were paid out of company proceeds as we went along.)
Darman Mfg. Co., Inc.’s annual sales were about $130,000 annually for the prior three fiscal years before I bought it. These annual sales were probably the lowest in its corporate history as far back as World War II.
Darman Mfg. Company, Inc. had suffered through a long slow decline in annual sales over the past fifteen years or more. This decline in sales was a result of paper towels and hot air dryers replacing the cloth roll towel cabinets that are (sometimes) still found in public restrooms.
Darman Mfg.’s primary product was cloth roll towel cabinets that were sold to the linen industry. The linen industry then hung these cabinets in commercial restrooms, and made their money on washing and changing the roll of cloth toweling.
When I told people back in the 1983 – 1994 era what Darman Mfg. Co. actually made a common response I received from many persons was “Who the heck still wants those? I did not think anyone made them any more”.
The primary reason for Darman Mfg. Co.’s flat sales three years before I purchased it was just as my father told me before he sold me the company… “Allen, every product has a life cycle. The life cycle of our primary product is over. It has been over for quite some time”.
Both my father, and a consultant with an M.B.A. degree that I hired a few years after I bought the company, told me that I did not have a chance as far as succeeding with Darman Mfg. Co. goes. Both thought such to be impossible… or extremely unlikely at best.
Few desired cloth roll towel cabinets (the toweling that they dispensed) to dry their hands on when paper towels for hand drying became prevalent, and took the commercial hand drying market by storm in the sixties and the seventies. In some states cloth roll towel cabinets were actually unfairly outlawed from the standpoint of hygiene. The market for cloth roll towel cabinets in the United States was not robust when I purchased this company, to say the very least.
In these hopeless business circumstances, and in a high tax state in which manufacturing companies were leaving in droves or dying, I succeeded “in spades”. And I succeed despite manufacturing a product many thought to be obsolete… cloth roll towel cabinets.
Less than eight years after I bought Darman Mfg. Co, from my father, it was doing about $2,000,000 in annual sales. And it continued to do so until I retired in 1994 in order to try to find the cure to manic depression.
For the past three or four years that I ran Darman Mfg. Co. as it’s President, its profits, and my salary with benefits, were both around $100,000 (each). This admittedly assumes that I count as my salary paying my ex-wife $35,000 annually as a “no-show” vice president, count a company car, count some paid for by the company gasoline credit cards.
I succeeded due to the following:
(1) I had a work ethic second to none. (Eighty hour work weeks were the norm for me for the bulk of the first five years or so of the eleven years I ran Darman Mfg. And in one particular year and a half period of these five years I often exceeded this eighty hour work week by another ten hours or so.)
(2) I maximized the value of a verbal pledge to purchase 2000 towel cabinets annually from a major domestic linen supplier in advance of a new towel cabinet design being even started on. (When this verbal pledge of future purchase was made, it represented about $120,000 in business annually, or about double our annual towel cabinet production in units at the time.)
(3) I was able to find and secure close to half a million dollars of funding for this new design via (1) a limited stock offering to people that I knew, and (2) through S.B.A. financing package. (I was heavily involved on a hands-on-basis in developing the business plan and accounting data to make this financing occur.)
(4) I successfully upgraded Darman Mfg. Company’s towel cabinet design from a product with a metal outer shell to a product with a plastic one. (I heavily participated in the design process of this new plastic shell. I worked as a team with a “pencil draftsman” that I had hired in a bar one night. “Pencil drafting” was almost a must at this time, as personal computers had not quite advanced enough to support AutoCad yet. Neither this draftsman nor I had any prior experience in plastic part design. We learned as we went along. Our design was so good a major local molder doing told us our new cabinet could win an award for its design. I admittedly did have our work reviewed by a professional plastic parts designer before expensive molds were made. However, this professional plastic parts designer made remarkably few changes to what the draftsman and I had come up with design-wise.)
(5) I greatly improved our internal accounting capability. (I was a wizard at writing Lotus 123 spreadsheets in 1987, and was completely self taught in this (by reading books). I put all the business books on spreadsheet templates of my own design in 1987. These were still in regular use by Darman Mfg. over a decade later. My work was done on a 286 computer, and was way ahead of its time. It actually embarrassed our C.P.A accounting firm to take the action of sending some of their employees to Chicago to learn how to use computers. A person in this accounting firm told me if my cash disbursements ledger template could write checks, he could sell it to some of his other accounting customers. I could have learned how to do such from the books that I had in my possession, but I did not have the time to invest in this. I was running my own business, not helping his for peanuts. Oddly, as much as I knew about Lotus 123 spreadsheets and spreadsheet design in 1987, I don’t know a whit about Excel today. After I left the business environment my learning was directed elsewhere.)
(6) I was behind the smart purchasing of raw materials. (At purchasing Darman Mfg. Company excelled for a business of our magnitude. I was using a Radio Shack computer to help with purchasing as early as 1984. I used merge letters, and the Thomas Register, to often get thirty or forty quotes from different vendors for the same part. This was done to find the best price for a part of equal quality, of course.)
(7) I was able to recognize the successful price point for our primary product. (This took a feel for the market, and what price it would bear. The market for towel cabinets was price sensitive somewhat. It was price sensitive due to an excess of fully reconditioned towel cabinets being regularly sold at $40. per unit all over the U.S.)
(8) I personally designed and developed a Lotus 123 spreadsheet template that was given to a number of our major customers in the early 1990′s. This spreadsheet template contained a sophisticated sales argument involving “the total cost approach” using net present value, including “all the math behind it”. It was essentially a program that our customers could plug their own cost and other variables into. It would then automatically and accurately generate their own fiscal results in net present value. (This sales argument compared two competing purchasing decisions many of my customers faced. This sales argument was a bit of sheer genius, or very close to it. It did make a substantial difference in our domestic and Canadian sales. It did so by convincing a number of our customers to replace their older towel cabinet inventory with new cabinets when their older cabinets came in for repair.)
(9) I acquired some major domestic customers. (My brother Stephen Darman was admittedly a great help with this. Sales skills are my weakest suit in running a business by far. Sales skills and people skills are somewhat related, and I am lacking in the latter, as well as the former. Thankfully the Internet makes selling far easier than it was before the Internet existed.)
Amazingly, one of our biggest customers for towel cabinets for many years was a linen supply company that was actually owned by the brother of the only competing manufacturer of cloth towel cabinets that we had in the U.S. We simply gave this man a much better value that his brother’s towel cabinet manufacturing company did. We sold this man’s linen supply company many hundreds of thousands of dollars of cabinets over the years. To do so, our value and quality had to be exceptional vs. that of his own brother’s company.
(10) Darman Mfg. acquired some export customers and markets. (We sold in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and other countries as well. Our export market expanded as a result of our presence at numerous European trade shows as a corporate exhibitor.)
and perhaps the most important…
(11) I learned to respectfully listen to the thoughts and ideas of every single one of my employees at all times. (One employee that worked for me came up with a key design change involving substantial simplification of the towel cabinet mechanism. This man, a man I have often thought of as my second father in my life, literally saved the company with this idea. His idea saved us almost $5.00 per cabinet in material and labor. One year we shipped almost 30,000 cabinets, for a savings of nearly $150,000.)
The success story of Darman Mfg. Company occurred against all odds. One of these odds I have yet to mention was the fact that during the entire tenure I ran Darman Mfg. Company, I was at least somewhat symptomatic of bipolar disorder. (I had yet to be even diagnosed for this. My original diagnosis of bipolar disorder did not occur until June 1994, despite my onset of significant symptoms first occurring in 1963, thirty one years earlier. I was admittedly “a madman” as Darman Mfg. Company’s President at times. However, I was a madman that could work like heck while in a functional state of hypomania, make many corporate things happen, and make a lot of money. I avoided any professional help in my entire adult life until the early 1990′s. At this point, I began seeing a psychologist every month or so as a result of a bad marriage, lessening career satisfaction, and a state of depression.)
The stress of growing Darman Mfg. Company did take a toll on me personally. Beginning in November 1987 my bipolar illness suddenly became a lot worse. At this same time (November 1987), I also became suddenly and heavily addicted to gambling. (This gambling was specifically playing poker, as I gambled at almost nothing else. This is a story for another day.)
Despite my being really nuts a good deal of the time from late 1987 until I voluntarily retired from Darman Mfg. in the summer of 1994, or my being gone playing poker somewhere, and despite a lot of very difficult business hurdles that I had to overcome, Darman Mfg. Company succeeded. And it succeeded in spades.
Such is the power of a little bit of genius, a ton of stubbornness to succeed, a solid work ethic, and a great deal of hard work.
Incidentally, the success of Darman Mfg. is certainly not the story of the power of formal education. I only have a high school diploma. And I have only completed one single course in college. This course was Accounting 101 in 1983. (My father made this course a pre-condition to sale of the company to me.)
Achieving Two Impossibles Sixteen Years Apart
What the above material regarding Darman Mfg. means is:
“I have done the impossible once in my life” in business.
Perhaps not one person in a million could have grown Darman Mfg. as fast as I did, given its primary product, and the access to capital and resources that I had to begin with.
What the above also happens to mean is:
I have a long life history of (1) the willingness to work, (2) the ability to work, and (3) the ability to achieve some rather extraordinary things (despite bipolar symptoms when some of these achievements occurred).
A recent blog I posted to my WordPress site titled “Cambridge Who’s Who And A Synopsis Of My Situation” (October 2010) means:
“I fully claim to have done the impossible again”. This second impossible is:
I have found many cures for a myriad of mental, degenerative, and addictive illnesses, when few to none of these cures actually existed before.
I did so with no formal conventional medical training, no formal alternative medical training, and despite only having a high school diploma.
I did so by primarily by reading a lot of books, and trying a wide range of things on myself… over and over again… in order to repeatedly refine and validate results.
I also achieved this second impossible by listening to the ideas of others.
This included listening to my thirteen year old son Willy, who came up with a much better idea than I in order to begin to cure himself in 2004 (his baggie).
Finding a myriad of cures for millions of persons with a wide range of different illnesses by the above would be considered by many to be impossible.
Well, it wasn’t impossible.
My teenage son Willy and I co-achieved this.
Incidentally, finding the cures for depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and the like was the easy part for me.
These cures are all fairly elementary from both a logical and a “common biological sense” point of view.
Staying alive while finding and refining these cures, all the while knowing since the spring of 2000 that some portion of the drug industry and I had already become aware of how much of a threat we were to each other… and doing so for the past eight years primarily funded by my SSD check, that was the hard part for me.
Over ten years ago I knew I was playing a chess game with a corporate monster for my very life.
I sure hope that the third impossible that I report to the world a year or so down the road is the following:
“I have achieved a won position in my chess game against Big Pharma. All the world needs is now is to wait a little more time for the weight of public opinion to topple them”.
A Wrap Up On the Story Of Darman Mfg. Company
Darman Mfg. Company was a notable success story in Utica, NY during my tenure as its President. We made the newspaper and TV in Utica NY more than a few times while I ran this company
Darman Mfg. Company is still a viable company today.
I wrote the story of Darman Mfg. Company in an attempt to add to the credibility that the Cambridge Who’s Who organization has recently bestowed on me. (I cannot thank this organization enough for this.)
I do have a complete set of Darman Mfg.’s financial statements during my tenure as its President to prove the above. I also have some years before and after my tenure as President in my possession as well. (These statements back up the above story.)
Anyone that has read this blog now knows that prior to my getting into self-applied alternative medicine, my professional background was business management.
I sincerely hope that some persons also realize that in all the years I have spent on the Internet spreading alternative medical truth and understanding, I have not tried to commercialize anything, or gain fiscally in any way.
Since the fall of 1997 I have given away many thousands of hours of personal effort on the Internet for free.
I intend to give away much, if not nearly all, of my future Internet efforts for free as well. This should show my pureness of heart in regard to helping people. If it does not, perhaps nothing will.
Defining, funding, and managing a healing house to the point of its generating useful video material for others worldwide is an infinitely simpler task than what I had to deal with to in order to make Darman Mfg. Company succeed. There is simply no comparison here.
In doing the above in a manner that is properly funded and staffed, I swear to the world that I can generate video material that will heavily sway the opinion of all who watch it.
The influence on public opinion I could rather readily generate, if given adequate fiscal means, enough baggie/natural healing volunteers, and “the needed protection” in which to work, has a very good chance of toppling Big Pharma.
There is the possible potential of a multi-hundred billion dollar pot of gold in selling drug company short, or using other “betting against” market devices, if some things are handled right, and a well funded party has to means to capitalize on this opportunity.
Today my spam email inbox has a number of spam letters from Pfizer. This is rather unusual, as I have never received a lot of spam emails from Pfizer before.
Now perhaps the reader may understand why I feel like a dead man walking sometimes.
My Final Two Cents Of Advice
My first cent of advice to the world:
Don’t ever discount what hard work and genius can do over a span of sixteen years time. My entire focus for the past sixteen years was to find the chemical part of the cure for bipolar disorder, other mental illnesses, and various addictions.
I loved chemistry class in high school. I was interested in this class, and I asked a lot of questions.
My second cent of advice to the world:
When a genius (or at least some degree of this) works for sixteen years to find a cure for an illness (that thus far has none) firmly states over and over again for over four years in a row that he or she has found this cure for all humanity… this genius is extremely likely to be stating The Truth, or be very close to it, and be closer than anyone else.

An Introduction To Myself (and my son Willy as well)
You may or may not be familiar with me, or my written work. Please allow me to introduce myself.
My name is Allen Darman.
I am a person that cured myself of over three decades of having bipolar disorder by using self-applied alternative medicine in the late 1990′s.
Beginning in the summer of 2004, I began to teach my then thirteen year old son Willy how to cure himself of an ADHD diagnosis, classic bipolar symptoms, and sickly childhood health as well.
Willy did his part in his recovery. He worked at it. In doing so, he generated a world leading recovery story. It is a story of hope for the whole world.
In 2004, my son Willy and I accidentally seem to have made one of the biggest discoveries in history, as far as the achievement, retention, or recovery of one’s health goes. (This is how history should interpret what happened here. Why? Because it is the truth.)
I give Willy the bulk of the credit for this discovery. Due to his circumstances, Willy insisted that I combine every single supplement that had helped me, such that he could take them all at once. In insisting in taking his supplements like this, Willy invented what I commonly call “Willy’s Baggie” (of supplements).
I would never have done things this way (taken all of these supplements all at once). Nor has anyone else in alternative medicine yet thought of the idea to do this, or widely carried it out.
Willy and I made an original discovery here. Admittedly, over four decades ago Adelle Davis ago postulated this discovery. She suggested that one take the entire nutrient range when healing decades before Willy had even thought of it. Adelle Davis simply did not have easy and affordable access to the supplement means in which to carry her discovery out.
Willy’s discovery (of Willy’s Baggie of supplements) was born in part from knowledge that I had acquired before it occurred.
As one example of knowledge acquired prior to the invention of Willy’s Baggie, my knowledge in regard to the oral therapeutic use of free form amino acids has exceeded that of anyone else in alternative medicine for over a decade. (Proper broad based free form amino acid use is a big missing key to dealing with all mental illness, degenerative illness, and addiction.) As a second example of knowledge acquired prior to the invention of Willy’s Baggie, some portions of my gut knowledge are unparalleled in the alternative medical realm. (There are other examples besides these two as well.)
What Willy and I have discovered is a huge threat to the drug industry. It threatens the collapse of drug oriented medicine in a very big way.
What Willy and I have discovered is also a huge help to anyone with a bipolar, depressive, schizo-affective, or schizophrenic diagnosis.
What Willy and I have discovered has far broader implications than those suggested in the above. Our discovery would greatly help to resolve heroin addiction, cocaine addiction, and alcohol addiction. It would help with many degenerative illnesses. It is profoundly anti-aging. And it would do so much else as well.
Big Pharma and I
A good portion of the drug industry is most certainly aware of all of the above. (And they know it is all true.)
As soon as I first put my son Willy’s original recovery story on the Internet in June 2006, I began to have chronic trouble with hackers paid for by a drug company (or companies). (The drug industry is the only logical suspect here.) This difficulty with hackers continues to this day, no matter what computer I may use, or whether it be publicly or privately owned.
Incidentally, I am almost certain that drug industry monitoring of my Internet activity first began over ten years ago. It began a result of my learning in the year 2000 how to adequately chemically correct a longstanding state of severe depression in as little as eight to twelve hours. This breakthrough for all humanity in regard to how to properly treat a depressive state is still not widely being used by other persons or parties (as it should have been years ago).
A few years ago it was found that what Willy and I are doing supplement-wise can result in hearing voices remission within a matter of hours to a matter of days. (Hearing voices is a hallmark symptom of schizophrenia.)
Essentially, coupled with what I already knew, a few years ago I had found the cure for schizophrenia, just as I had found the cure for bipolar disorder over ten years ago.
A few years ago I also began having recurrent very unusual trouble while using my cell phone. This unusual phone difficulty and/or monitoring of my phone calls by some portion of the drug industry continues to this day, regardless of my changing phones multiple times. (What this means is that any contact made with me outside of snail mail is listened to by the drug industry in some way.)
Things have become even worse for me this year. In 2010 I firmly believe that I have had two separate attempts on my life. And I am certain that the same parties behind this evil doing will try to make me dead again. If I am alive one year from now I will be surprised… and if I am alive two years from now I will be even more surprised.
What I know threatens hundreds of billions of dollars of drug industry revenue, and both they and I know it. And it threatens entire classes of medication as well.
A Synopsis Of My Situation
Some day the world will realize that the person that was going to find the cure for manic depression (or bipolar disorder, its newer name) had to be a person that was bipolar his or her self. And some day the world will realize that I was that man.
I knew when I found the cure for bipolar disorder that I had found the cure for depression as well.
Little did I know when I found the cure for bipolar disorder that I had found the cure for schizophrenia too. However, I began to suspect this in 2001, as a result of an anecdotal story that I heard in Kentucky at this time. About seven years after this event in Kentucky, while in Ohio I became fairly certain that I found the cure for schizophrenia. And today I am now certain of this (at least for the majority of this population).
Never would I have guessed in a million years when I found the cure for bipolar disorder in 2000 that my (then) thirteen year old son Willy would some day improve on what I already knew, as well as greatly simplify its implementation. (He did both of these in 2004, but I did not realize this until 2006.)
In inventing his baggie (Willy’s Baggie) my son Willy has hit a home run for the entire world in regard to healing so many illnesses. This home run is so broad in its implications, it is not funny.
Willy has no idea of how enormously important his discovery of Willy’s Baggie is. He is almost totally blind to the enormity of what he invented. And he is also totally blind to how much trouble his discovery has got me into. (In Willy’s defense, his blindness on these issues may be due to the influence of other persons.)
Ironically, Willy’s discovery (of Willy’s Baggie) so seriously threatens Big Pharma, and is so important to the human race, that it is almost certainly going to get me killed some day. It is going to get me killed because (1) I fully realize its (Willy’s discovery’s) enormous significance, (2) I will never give up trying to be heard, and (3) the drug industry called Big Pharma stands to lose hundreds of billions of dollars due to it (Willy’s discovery).
More In Regard To What Willy’s Discovery Has The Power To Do
Wound healing of all sorts, the treatment of all mental illnesses, the treatment of virtually all (or almost all) degenerative illnesses, the treatment of most addictive illnesses (the exception is cigarettes, which still puzzles me), the ability to live longer and in a healthier fashion… are all substantially improved by what my son Willy invented in 2004.
Willy’s baggie idea does even more than this.
Willy’s Baggie improves mental and physical performance across the board (in every aspect).
It makes soldiers better soldiers. (They can perform better, and for longer periods of time, in the field.)
It makes workers better workers, regardless of what they may do. (It improves health in general, mental performance, and physical performance as well.)
It makes students better students. (It improves brain performance.)
It makes athletes better athletes. (They become stronger, and have more endurance.)
It makes golfers better golfers (especially if the right kind and amount of inhibitory nutrients are used).
It makes writers better writers. (It is absolutely the cure for writer’s block. I know this for a fact. When I am out of Willy’s Baggies of supplements, it hurts. Given even one or two baggies, I motivated and able to write again.)
It makes chess players better chess players. (I know this for a fact.)
It makes makes poker players better poker players. (I know this for a fact as well.)
Willy’s idea to put the entire essential nutrient range together (Willy’s baggie) in an adequate therapeutic dosage (adjusted by the user) helps with EVERYTHING! (This baggie has to be properly formulated, of course.)
Certainly Willy’s Baggie is not all that should be done to improve one’s health. Correcting one’s gut biology, correcting one’s diet, correcting any common malabsorptive factor that may apply to you are all very wise things to do. Supplementation at mealtimes with vitamins, minerals, digestive enzymes, and possibly other needed digestive aids (such as HCL) are all wise measures to consider. Avoidance of toxic exposure, allergic exposure (especially to allergic foods), and the resolution of bad biology in the body (as per what Bob Beck taught us) are also wise issues to consider when recovering one’s health as well. (None of these health measures diminish the therapeutic effect of taking a Willy’s Baggie in the morning; they only add to it. In the case of using Bob Beck’s protocol, it is worthy to note that the use of Willy’s Baggies needs to be temporarily ceased as per this protocol’s FIRM rules.)
Whatever you may choose to do, you will be able to do it better if you properly apply to yourself the concept of taking the entire nutrient range in supplement form all at once. (This assumes that you successfully adjust your baggie contents so that they are right for you. Doing so is easy. It just takes a little knowledge in how to do so, and a little time.)
I cannot begin to tell the world the enormous importance of what Willy and I have discovered. (I sure hope that I am heard on this before I am dead. I do not hope this for my sake, as I stand to gain nothing from this. I hope this for the sake of the world. I also hope that I am still here to participate in the refinement this great raw discovery that my son and I have co-made, as the world would benefit from this.)
Big Pharma’s Only Chance At Survival; To Change The Law
Sadly, none of what Willy and I discovered may matter. Powerful therapeutic nutritional supplements may soon be taken off the open market by force of law. Or some key nutritional supplements will be taken off the open market (such that what Willy and I have discovered will no longer be available to anyone else).
It does appear that we are running out of time in regard to Big Pharma’s agenda to make us all at least a little sick, and then profit from such.
Corporate corruption of our government was greatly expanded recently in the Supreme Court decision last winter that allowed corporations to buy the elective process without any legal restraint.
Big Pharma corruption of Federal law will most certainly try to handcuff alternative medicine in the foreseeable future.
Big Pharma will try to do so by bribing our lawmakers to outlaw critical healing nutritional supplements. (They have already succeeded in doing this in many countries worldwide.) Or Big Pharma will bribe our lawmakers to put these supplements in the hands of doctors, and only doctors (such that one needs a prescription in which to get them).
As ludicrous as this may sound, the essential nutrients that we human beings are made of at birth may soon become illegal for the general public to purchase or possess. When this happens, a person will be unable to adequately and properly treat a deficiency of these essential nutrients in his or her self.
The above is even more ludicrous given the facts of (1) our mineral depleted topsoils, (2) the rampant (over)processing of our food, and (3) the poor quality in general of the Standard American Diet.
In essence, it should be patently obvious that we are all nutrient deficient today to one degree or another.
Yet the claim will soon be made by our lawmakers that many nutritional supplements should be taken off the open market, as they are not safe for us for take in order to retain or regain our health. (Only prescribed drugs are safe for us in these regards, or so the law states.)
Key nutritional supplements being taken off the market may happen much sooner than most persons think.
Big Pharma knows if the above does not happen in the next few years, they are done as far as being the behemoth industry that they are today. They know that if the truth of the matter in regard to nutrients becomes realized by too many people, drug oriented medicine does not stand a chance to survive as the industry that it is today.
Therefore, Big Pharma is pushing their agenda to legally get powerful nutritional supplements out of the general public’s hands as fast as they possibly can. (This statement may especially apply to the critical class of nutritional supplements called free form amino acids. However, it may apply to many other nutritional supplements as well.)
Cambridge Who’s Who; Some Very Good News
Thankfully, my recently becoming a member of Cambridge Who’s Who may finally mean the end to my longstanding efforts to be heard by a party with the means to act on what Willy and I have discovered.
On September 9, 2010 I was admitted as a member in the Cambridge Who’s Who organization. In my humble opinion, this is an extraordinary honor, especially in light of the facts that (1) I only have a high school degree, (2) I was self taught after this, and (3) I have no serious professional affiliations whatsoever (until they selected me).
There are a number of Who’s Who publications. This particular one (Cambridge) has had Donald Trump, Jr. become newly affiliated with it as the Executive Director of Global Branding and Networking. (See http://www.cambridgewhoswho.com/ for more information on this organization and its publication if you like.)
My becoming a member of this professional organization gives me the ability to be heard by as many as 400,000 professionals worldwide. These professionals are people of importance in virtually every field of endeavor (from (a)rchitecture to (z)oology).
It is my intent to contact thousands of these professionals worldwide (those that are appropriate) with cohesive, organized, and well written material as soon as it is practical and possible to do so.
If ever granted the means to develop such, I hope to disseminate quality video material to these same people as well.
In doing so, I sincerely hope over the next year or two to expose the hoax of drug oriented medicine once and for all.
And in doing so, I sincerely hope that finally some nutrient common sense will begin to come into the healing equation, especially as far as the treatment of mental illness is concerned. (I hope this due to the fact that it is impossible to treat broad essential nutrient syndromes successfully with any drug. All mental illnesses involve broad essential nutrient deficiency, every single one.)
I wish to deeply thank the entire Cambridge Who’s Who organization for their selection of me to become a member. Your organization may result in my finally having a chance to be heard by the entire world (instead of just a few persons as I am now).
I also wish to deeply thank whomever was personally involved in making the decision to let me be a member of your organization. You made a wise choice. (I do suggest that you hide your tracks as much as it is possible for you to do so, and to remain anonymous for your own safety and your own good.)
The Cambridge Who’s Who organization may finally end my longstanding effort to make the one key connection that the discovery that my son and I made needs in order for this discovery to bear fruit for the human race.
The Cambridge Who’s Who organization may also finally end my longstanding efforts to be widely heard by persons with the power to change things.
My progress over the past eight years (since I ran out of my own money) has been sporadic at best. For the past eight years, I could not often afford housing, a decent diet, and/or the means to adequately supplement myself.
The Cambridge Who’s Who organization holds great promise to end the above mentioned problems. (Thankfully, I finally have fairly safe and secure housing at present. The other things mentioned above are still problems for me.)
Membership in the Cambridge Who’s Who organization also holds great promise for me to find the connection(s) and adequate means that I need in order for Willy’s discovery to have a chance to help millions of persons some day.
I patiently await such help (a connection or connections and adequate means). I have patiently waited for such help for over a decade (ever since I cracked the mystery of how to properly treat depression and manic depression for the world). Another year or two is not that much longer to wait.
Regardless of how long the above wait takes, or even if what I am waiting for never happens, I pledge to do the best that I can within my means to achieve my three primary goals… and I pledge to do so for the rest of my natural life.
These three goals are as follows:
(1) To alert the world to the fact that ONLY nutrients and other natural measures can actually cure mental illness, degenerative illness, or addiction,
(2) To alert the world that man made drugs can NEVER cure the same, and
(3) To inform every one that I possibly can that a thirteen year old child (my son Willy) hit a home run for the world in 2004 in regard to the health, well being, and longevity of the entire human race.

I am aware that the blogs on my Nutrientscure WordPress site are not organized, or easily found.
This blog will help the reader find the gist of my Nutrientscure WordPress website, without having a great deal of difficulty when doing so.
The blogs listed below concern how to correct depression, ADHD, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and/or difficulty with sleep via natural means. However, many of the concepts in these blogs apply to virtually every mental illness, and most degenerative illnesses and addictive illnesses as well.
Some of the blogs that are listed below contain a world leading degree of understanding. This understanding is in part due to the insight I have gained regarding how to use free form amino acids properly in a therapeutic sense. It is also in part to due the insight I have gained regarding malabsorption and gut (GI tract) dysfunction. (“Mental illness” is often simply “dietary problems and gut illness in disguise”.)
I have no commercial agenda in ANY of the blogs listed below. I am NOT selling anything. I am only trying to share what I have learned about the correction of mental illness naturally. This sharing comes from a heartfelt sense of moral obligation to try to help other persons that still suffer from a similar illness to that which I once had.

Important Note: Willy’s Baggie idea, which represents a therapeutic and adequately balanced dose of broad based nutrition taken all at once, IS A DISCOVERY OF HISTORICAL SIGNIFICANCE. It has the potential to help the entire human race (or all those that can afford such at least). It also has the power to bring drug oriented medicine to its knees… as it profoundly helps “so many with so much”.
Introducing the Concept of an “Educational Healing House” (2006)
This blog regarding a healing house defines where I want to go with what I have learned in the blogs listed below. It defines “a new model of healing for the world”. A “healing house” is a conceptual model of healing that disenfranchises both conventional and alternative medicine as practiced by “doctors”… as it teaches “the patient” to become “an effective doctor of his or her self”.
My son Willy profoundly proved to the world that even a thirteen year old child can become “an effective doctor of himself”.
Willy also proved to the world that someone can become “an effective doctor of his or her self” without even reading a single alternative medical book. This is due to the fact that the body of knowledge needed to become “an effective doctor of oneself” can be verbally taught… despite using only simple words (words that almost any teenager can understand).
Many of the blogs on http://nutrientscure.wordpress.com/ contain “seeds of knowledge” that I had gained prior to Willy’s amazing recovery. This knowledge gave me the ability to teach my son how to heal himself… when the time came that he was ready to do so.

My “Gut Story” as it relates to bipolar disorder and depression
To tell my “gut story” properly, I should not begin it in 1999, the year I made a number of important discoveries.
I should begin my “gut story”, and any significant event related to it, from as far back as I can remember.
My “gut story” is not only going to be about the issue of “gut biology”. My “gut story” needs to be inclusive of the issue of multiple hidden food allergies. This is because one issue often relates to the other. Gut biology and the issue of food allergy are related. Rarely, if ever, does a person have a big problem with one of these problematic issues, and at the same time has “no problem with the other”. (Dr.’s William Crook and Doris Rapp taught me this in their books on ADHD, but I learned it from experience as well.)
To be told properly, my “gut story” not only has to include issues related to “gut biology” and food allergies, it has to include a number of other common malabsorptive causes as well.
My Gut Story
The first event in my life that I can remember relates to the issue of food allergy in an indirect way.
When I was five years old, I was accidentally hit directly in the face by a half of a brick thrown by a friend of my older brother. My nose bled profusely from being hit by this half of a brick, and the bleeding did not stop for quite some time. I was taken to a doctor and my nose was X-rayed. Despite the fact an X-ray was taken of my nasal area, the fact that my nose was broken was not noticed by the doctor.
When a nose is broken, it is normally “set”, such that it heals properly. As a result of the fact my nose was not “set”, the cartilage at the end of my nose dissolved, such that I have what is commonly called a “boxer’s nose”.
From the time that I was a young child of five (1957) until the time that I was a man of forty five (1997), I was not able to breathe well through my nose. My breathing was primarily “by mouth” for four decades. I assumed this entire time that “I had to breathe through my mouth”. This assumption was based on the fact that “my nose was messed up”. And I assumed that without plastic surgery it would always be so.
I would have never guessed that an allergy to milk was the problem here. In 1997, when I finally found some of the basic tenets of alternative medicine, I eliminated milk and a number of other allergic foods in my diet. And voila!, I could finally breathe easily through my nose.
Incidentally, only in the late 1990’s did I find out that milk allergy was present in my mother’s family. Once I found out I was allergic to milk, I mentioned this to my mother. She told me that she had a sister that nearly died as an infant due to a severe allergy to cow’s milk. This allergy was recognized by a doctor, and in the 1930’s no less. This doctor told my grandfather to give my aunt goat’s milk, rather than cow’s milk. According to my mother, this measure saved my aunt’s life.
At about age nine, while attending a day camp for children, I quite literally “passed out” from eating a meal of powdered scrambled eggs and chocolate milk. I also broke out with an itchy rash at the same time. My father was called by the people that ran the day camp. He came to take me to the hospital. At a point that I do not clearly remember I woke up and was told by my father what had happened.
Despite the above event, the issue of potential food allergy in me was not recognized by the medical profession. The major reason for the potential of food allergy in me being missed at this time is as follows:
In my early years as a child, I was a severely allergic child to plants that grew outside. From about age six to about age eleven or so, every spring and summer I would have an itchy rash for a good part of the summer. Often this rash was all over my body. The itching from this rash at times was so bad that I cried. I cried out of both pain and frustration (frustration at it not going away).
Only one measure could be counted on at home to give me substantial relief from the itchy rash that I often had all over my body in the spring and the summer. This measure was taking an oatmeal bath. I had quite a few oatmeal baths as a child.
At one point while I was covered with this allergic rash, a doctor gave me a shot in my abdominal area. I believe that this shot was cortisone, but I am not sure of this. Almost immediately after I got this shot, one could actually “see” the rash on my abdominal area subside. However, I was never given such a shot again.
Often my pediatrician prescribed various creams and ointments to put on my rash. Some of these creams and ointments had cortisone in them, I believe. However, these creams only provided temporary relief. I simply lived with “the rash and the itch” for the most part.
For years I was told that by my mother and my pediatrician that I had “hives”. Later a different word than “hives” was used… I was told that I had “eczema”.
Because the rashes I had were only prevalent in the spring and summer, it was assumed that I was allergic to plants of some sort. I was never tested as to which specific plants I was allergic to. When I asked my mother about this, she told me the doctor assumed the plants I was allergic to were so numerous that it “was pointless to test”. At least this was what I was told.
I was clearly a malabsorptive child. I only weighed about 50 lbs. at ten years old, 63 lbs. at 12 years old, and 83 lbs. at fourteen years old, when I when I was in ninth grade. These are weights that I remember.
I was the smallest boy in “the aggregate class” of almost 300 children in New Hartford, New York when this class came to graduate sixth grade in 1964. Our sixth grade class (from three different elementary schools) was lined up “smallest to tallest” at my sixth grade graduation. I was at the front of the line, paired with a girl that was about as small as I was. (I remember her name, but choose to leave it out here.)
One reason that I remember I was only 83 lbs. at fourteen years old is that I went out for wrestling when I was in ninth grade. In high school wrestling in the 1960’s, the lightest weight class was 95 lbs. Many kids on the wrestling team had to struggle “to make weight” for a wrestling match by either dieting or “sweating it off”. I never had to make weight for a wrestling match. I did not have to “make weight” because I was already twelve pounds underweight for the weight class I was in.
It is not like I did not eat as a child. At dinner I generally ate as much, and the same foods, that my brothers and sisters did, despite my small size. And at lunch in school I often had “doubles”.
My mother (Marion) was a great cook. She had “many dozens of cookbooks”, and she prepared almost every dinner from scratch. Marion did not use all of the artificial ingredients and convenience foods that are common today. Nor did we have a microwave. (Remember, this was the sixties. Microwave ovens were not invented yet.) Meat, fish, potatoes, and fresh fruits and vegetables were the norm in our house. And an apple pie made from actual fruit, flour, and shortening was not uncommon at all for dessert, nor were homemade cookies. Dinner was “a major event” almost every single night in our house. There were nine at the round table my father had designed, unless we had company, and then there were more. (I had three brothers and three sisters. Along with my mother and father that makes “nine”.)
One of my clearest memories as a child in the early 1960’s was how much difficulty I had when having a bowel movement. When I felt I had to poop, I often brought reading material into the bathroom. I brought reading material because I knew I was going to be there for some time. I also knew that I was going to strain a lot to go. It often took me over a half an hour to poop out a few small pieces of poop, despite straining a great deal. (I used to call my poops “rabbit poops”, for they looked like such. None of my brothers and sisters seemed to have this problem going to the bathroom, only me. Often someone would call to me “Allen, where are you?”, and I would yell “I am still going to the bathroom”. Thankfully, there were three bathrooms in our house, or my taking so long would have posed a problem for the others.
I had no clue that my being severely constipated as a child meant that I had little to no “good gut biology”. And I had no clue that my being severely constipated as a child suggested that I was eating allergic foods as well. Nor did any one ever mention such concepts to me.
My problems with constipation followed me for most of my adult life. However, these problems were generally not as severe for me as they regularly were when I was about age eleven to age fourteen or so. During this entire time, I had great difficulty going to the bathroom.
My onset of significant bipolar symptoms, which occurred in 1963, occurred at about the same time that I remember I first had so much trouble going to the bathroom. In my opinion, this coincidence is no accident. A lack of “good gut biology” and bipolar disorder are definitely related.
Incidentally, my son Willy, was diagnosed with ADHD, but was also clearly “third generation bipolar” (my mother, I, and then he, until he cured himself of this). Willy had problems for years with severe constipation as a child. More than once his pediatrician would have to use her gloved finger to dig the poop out of him. (Never was the issue of poor gut biology in Willy mentioned by the medical profession that treated him. This occurred despite it being the 1990’s, when such should clearly have been known.)
When I was about sixteen years of age, I sensed that eating potatoes might be a problem for me. I noticed that if I ate rice for a starch source at dinnertime a few days in a row, I felt OK afterward. However, if I ate potatoes as a starch source for a few days in a row at dinnertime, I did not feel as good as I did if I ate rice. Over time I became sure of this problem with potatoes. This problem with potatoes vs. rice puzzled me, but I had no explanation for it. And it was hard for me to stop eating potatoes… especially in light of the facts that they were served so often and my mother’s various gravies were all absolutely delicious.
I did not solidly pick up on the fact I am “nightshade allergic” until I first went on an elimination diet in February 1999. Neither did two food allergic tests (via RBC) in the late 1990’s from two different esteemed alternative medical labs pick up on the fact that I am “nightshade allergic” as well. (For those not familiar with the nightshade family of foods, it consists of potato, tomato, eggplant, and bell pepper.)
For reasons that I am unsure of, between the age of fourteen and the age of sixteen I began to grow and finally gain some weight. I only weighed 83 lbs. in the fall and winter of ninth grade. Two years later, in the fall of eleventh grade I weighed 135 lbs. I had gained 52 lbs. in two years, almost none of it fat. (I had chiseled abdominal muscles and a physique like a weightlifter when I was in eleventh grade.) I remember this 135 lb. weight because it was my weight for “football”. (I made the junior varsity football team in my junior year. I was a 135 lb. guard, considered very light for this position.)
Some of my substantial growth in height and weight from ninth grade to eleventh grade may have stemmed from “going through puberty”. (I was a little late this way.) Some of this growth may have stemmed from the fact that I was often in the fields and woods behind our house as a teen. A habit I had picked up was to regularly chew on hay that was growing, or chew on or eat some of the other plant life that I found there. And some of my substantial growth during this time may have stemmed from the fact that during the summer months, I was often either playing sports in the dirt, or doing gardening tasks for my mother or father. (A fellow named Jordan Rubin, who owns the Garden Of Life Company, knows, and has taught the world, “the probiotic value of eating a little dirt”.)
One problem that I had in high school is that I was often five or ten minutes late to school. I simply could not get up and get going in the morning, like my brothers and sisters could. Often I would miss the bus, and have to walk or run a mile to get to school. And I often missed breakfast as well, as I simply did not get up in time to eat it, or I was not hungry in the morning. My often missing breakfast as a teen “may have been good for me”. This is because my mother often served eggs for breakfast, and I am seriously allergic to eggs. (In my opinion, egg is my most crippling allergy, just as it is my son Willy’s.)
There was another problem that I had in high school as well. I would often fall asleep after lunch. I could not help this. Lunch was like a “strong sleeping pill” for me. It knocked me out about a half hour or so after I ate it. Despite great effort not to, I would fall asleep in the middle of the class after lunch. I was sent numerous times to the school psychologist for this. She would ask me what was wrong with me such that I fell asleep after lunch day after day (for months on end). And I would tell her the same thing every time… “I have no idea”.
I now realize that eating allergic foods can, and does, often put me to sleep. I also realize that milk products (milk, cheese, etc.) and eggs are especially problematic in this regard. Often I was having “doubles” of the school lunch main course. I also was often having a few small paper cups of chocolate ice cream too. (By the time lunch came around, I was often starving, from having skipped breakfast because I had gotten up late.)
I had bipolar symptoms all through high school. I was often hypomanic in high school, especially in the spring and fall. During the winter months I was also often depressed. My bipolar symptoms in high school were so serious that at one point in the fall of my senior year, the school disciplinarian called me to his office for a talk. For almost half an hour he repeatedly accused me of both using and selling drugs. (His particular concern was marijuana, but he suspected I might be doing, and selling, other drugs as well.) Up until this point, I had NEVER done any illegal drugs WHATSOEVER in my life, and I had never drank alcohol in school. I was simply hypomanic or manic in high school, or I was depressed.
[Incidentally, I was a gifted child learning-wise. I got straight A’s or A+’s in most of my elementary grades. I was reading entire children’s encyclopedias as young as age eight. (I had read two of these children’s encyclopedias in their entirely as a young child, one thicker and more advanced than the other. As a teen, I even tackled trying to read the entire Encyclopedia Brittanica, but much of it was too dry and not interesting to me.) I was a voracious reader as a child, often spending entire weekends in the winter reading books of one sort or another. I had read “The Collected Works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle” by age eleven or so, a 1200 page book containing all of Sherlock Holmes fictional adventures. I learned to play duplicate bridge at age fourteen, having been taught by my mother, and by the books she lent to me. (I often won, or came in second at this in Utica, NY, playing against adults with many years of experience. My mother was one of the best bridge players in the state, despite being only a high school educated housewife.) I was the best chess player in my high school, and “could almost play a decent game blindfolded”. I got an 800 Math SAT, and many high Regents exams marks in high school, despite putting forth no effort outside of class. (I almost never “took home a schoolbook” for I had whizzed through my homework in study hall.) Out of almost 300 students in my class, three were very bright, and could be termed “genius” to at least some degree. I was one of the three. But I was a problem child for most of my teachers in high school. (For some “I asked far too many questions in class”. For others, I did not pay attention at all, rebelling at the irrelevance of the course material.) I did not fit in with my peers because I was “so different”. And I was “at war” with the entire school administration during most my high school years, especially after a National Merit Scholarship was unfairly denied me. (I “aced” this test, probably scoring the highest in the entire school, as I remember being hypomanic the day I took it, and when I was hypomanic I knew that “I aced tests”. I remember watching while dozens of kids got this award, while I was unfairly denied.) I got in a physical altercation with the swim teacher in my junior year. (This was his fault, not mine. He attacked me.) And I was kicked out of gym class in my senior year. (This was probably my fault.) I nearly did not graduate high school, due to various troubles that I had. After high school I lasted three weeks in college, essentially saying to myself “I am not going to volunteer be tortured like I was in high school. High school was mandatory; college is not. I can learn faster on my own than I am being taught. And I can learn what I am interested in as well.”]
Going back to by “gut story”…
At age nineteen, after hitchhiking to Denver, Colorado, I had my first episode of hemorrhoids. And it was a rather severe one, involving bleeding and a good deal of pain. It is no surprise to me that I had hemorrhoids at such a young age, as for a good many years I had strained so hard to poop. (My severe constipation at age eleven through fourteen had resolved somewhat by my late teens, but I was still constipated, and often had to strain a good deal to poop.)
Lots of Preparation H, a number of warm baths, a good deal of rest, eating non-constipating foods, and learning not to strain when pooping resolved this first serious bout of hemorrhoids without any surgery. However, every few years for the next sixteen I had another bout of hemorrhoids again. (Finally in 1987, I had an operation due to them. The details of this are told later.)
After hanging around Denver for a bit, and going to California as well, about six months later I ended up back in Denver. I did not quite know what to do with my life. In an attempt to fit in with the human race, I decided to join the U.S. Army. (This was admittedly a big mistake.)
In zero week of basic training, I found that Army food was very constipating to me. I bought an over-the-counter laxative called ExLax. I then took way too much of it… going from constipation to diarrhea in short order. (Soon after this, and partly as a result of being kept up until 3 a.m. and then woken for training at 5 a.m. due to us recruits receiving “a bad batch of vaccine”, I went AWOL. I hitchhiked from Fort Leonard Wood in Missouri to Utica, NY in 36 hours, after crawling off the fort in the woods in my fatigues.)
The Army diet is a Standard American one. Eggs are often served for breakfast, and meat and milk with every meal. Potatoes and other foods I am allergic too are all common to the Standard American Diet as well.
In looking back over my life, every time I have been exposed to and regularly eaten the Standard American Diet, I have had great trouble with my bowel movements, and with my moods as well. I have also commonly had a great deal of back trouble when eating such a diet as well. (The three specific times in my life I have eaten the Standard American Diet for long periods of time are (1) when I was a child living at home, as my mother cooked such, (2) for the fourteen months I lasted in the Army before opting for an Undesirable Discharge in lieu of court martial for disobedience (for a second time), and (3) during the three years I spent actually “on the water” as a seaman in the Gulf Of Mexico and on the East Coast between 1976 and 1982.)
When I was in the process of getting out of the Army for refusing to serve any more in 1972, I was sent to an Army psychiatrist. This was an understanding man who did not argue with the firm decision that I had made to leave the service (or be sent to the stockade again if they would not let me out). As a psychiatrist, this man was a doctor as well. I will always remember his physical examination of me. He had me lay down on a table while I was in my underwear, and he physically examined me. He was puzzled by my very bloated abdomen. Here was a man twenty years old in very good physical condition, but with stomach that was protruded and “under a lot of pressure”. I remember him repeatedly poking my gut with his finger, saying he was puzzled by why my stomach protruded and “was under pressure” so much. (I had no idea why my stomach sometimes stuck way out, and why sometimes it didn’t, other than the fact that sometimes I was very constipated.)
After my tenure in the Army ended, I had “athlete’s foot” for thirteen years straight. No matter what I did to try to get rid of it, my feet itched. They itched to the point that they often were so cracked they bled. I used powder and creams for athlete’s feet for years on a daily basis. These might “knock it down” for a bit, but they never quite got rid of my case of athlete’s feet.
I now know that longstanding athlete’s feet, such as I had, comes from the gut. It is candida (and/or other yeasts, molds, and fungi) that migrates from one’s anus to one’s feet when a person is in the shower. This “bad biology” from the gut then sets up housekeeping between the toes, as it is moist and warm there.
Incidentally, my mother had a toe/foot fungus problem and ingrown toenails throughout much of her adult life. This toe/foot fungus problem came from her gut as well. Her gut had “bad biology” that had migrated to her feet in the shower as well. (There is no doubt about this in my opinion.)
I finally was able to conquer my athlete’s foot problem for the first time in the mid 1980’s with a strong antifungal preparation called Lotramin AF. However, every so often this problem would still come back.
From about age sixteen to about age thirty I instinctually turned to one measure to help my often dysfunctional gut. I walked. And I walked. And I walked. It was not uncommon for me to walk ten miles a day, day after day. I would often walk four or five miles to work, even in the winter months. And then I would walk home. I would also go for four or five hour long walks on weekends. There would be a point hours into some of the walk that I took that I would get a feeling of relief, and a feeling of peace. And I would walk until this feeling occurred. I did not understand what was happening here… I only knew that “walking helped me to feel good”.
At age thirty (in August 1983), I bought a small, and failing, manufacturing company from my father. For the first few years most of my job was still physical in nature. Then as the company grew “it became more of a desk job”. My walking for long periods of time became very infrequent at this point. And at this point my gut problems started to become a lot worse.
In 1987, I finally underwent an operation for my recurrent hemorrhoid problem, which had become regularly recurrent over the years.
The middle-aged (almost 50 year old) doctor who operated on my hemorrhoids in 1987 told me after the operation that “he almost had to fix my hemorrhoids in two operations rather than one”, and that they were “the worst he had ever seen”.
After my operation for hemorrhoids, I was unable to go to the bathroom. In nine days, I gained seventeen pounds, all of it poop (or food residue in my intestines).
I repeatedly called the doctor that operated on me. He said “Don’t worry, you will go to the bathroom eventually”.
As I simply could not poop, on the ninth day I decided to go to the emergency room. The doctor there had me drink something and then took an X-ray of my gut. Then I could hear him across the hall yelling at the doctor that operated on me on the phone. The emergency room doctor knew that I had nearly died from poor patient aftercare in regard to the operation that I had.
First I had one enema in the emergency room. Nothing. Then I had another. As a result of this second enema, I had an enormous bowel movement, as well as bled from my anus being so stretched (when having it). This bowel movement looked exactly like “the picture of a colon in a book”. I had been so full of poop that I nearly died from bowel rupture, just as the X-ray that was taken had shown.
For a full ten years after this hemorrhoid operation in 1987, my anus did not close tight enough for it to not leak somewhat. My underwear would always have a smear of poop on them at the end of the day. If I walked too much, I leaked even more. My ability to take long walks (like I often used to) ended due to this problem. I used to often have to change my underwear in the middle of the day, regardless of whether I had walked a good deal or not. (This leaking anus problem did not clear up until after I had a series of colonics in the fall of 1997. My anus hasn’t leaked since.)
My diet in the 1980’s and for most of the 1990’s often meant “eggs in the morning”. I did not know I was allergic to milk, eggs, wheat, or corn until the fall of 1997. It took me another year and a half after this to learn I had a number of other hidden food allergies as well.
In the late 1980’s and early 1990’s I would often be extremely bloated in my abdomen. I was thin or of average size arms, legs, and chest-wise, but I had this enormous gut. I would often say to my wife Pamela (now ex-wife), while holding my protruding gut, “I am a medical anomaly”, or “I’m pregnant”, for I certainly looked like such. Sometimes this bloating was less than at other times, but often “my stomach was way too big” in relation to the rest of my body. And I had no clue as to why (until I educated myself in regard to what alternative medicine has to say on this).
It was not uncommon for me to have an itchy anus during the 1970’s through the mid 1990’s. And it was an itch that scratching did not help. I now know this was candida. I may have finally resolved my longstanding case of athlete’s feet in the mid 1980’s, but I had not resolved the candida in my gut.
In the late 1980’s, I also often began to have heartburn after I ate. This was new to me, as for years I often bragged that I had “a cast iron stomach”… for nothing seemed to bother me heartburn-wise or food-wise before then. (I had not connected my problem with sometimes being inordinately sleepy after I ate with the ingestion of food allergens. Up until I was almost forty five years of age, I thought that I had no food allergies at all.)
To correct my common problem with heartburn that began in the late 1980’s, I began to carry around, and often take, the over the counter antacids of either Rolaids or Tums. (Little did I know my real problem at this time was that I made far too little stomach acid, not too much as I had supposed. Again, I had to find alternative medicine to discover the truth in this regard.)
In the early 1990’s I had two serious episodes involving gallstones becoming temporarily stuck in my gall bladder. Thankfully, both of these gallstone problems resolved on their own without my seeing a doctor. What follows are the details of this:
***To be filled in***
In July 1996, I had my second near-death-experience due to my gut almost bursting. (The first one was in 1987 as I described previously. It was a result of my not being able to poop for nine days after a hemorrhoid operation.)
This second near-death-experience due to my gut almost bursting occurred during a voluntary hospitalization for depression as a result of three medications that I was given. It involved my small intestine more than it did my colon (or large intestine, as it is sometimes called). This second near-death-experience was “a real close call”, just like the first one was. I am very lucky I did not end up dead due to it (or so I strongly believe). What follows are the details of this.
***To be continued***
“Gut biology” refers to the various yeasts, molds, fungi, “good bacteria”, “bad bacteria, and/or parasites that are found there. It may include viruses as well.
The “gut” refers to everything from your mouth to your anus. It includes the esophagus, the stomach, the small intestine, and the colon (or the large intestine, as the colon is sometimes called).
The gut is a very active biological place. It is the most active biological place in your body by far. This is true ALWAYS (for every human being).
Every human being has many hundreds of billions of “individual units” of biological life in their gut. Yes… You! Are host to all of these “individual units” of biological life. You carry them around with you in your gut. You carry around “at least ten times” more “individual units” of biological life in the gut than the number of cells that are in your entire body.
Some “wonder” if there is a connection in regard to “gut biology” and mental illness.
Well, there is no need to “wonder” any more.
This question has been answered for once and for all.
The Connection Between Gut Biology And Mental Illness
Many hundreds of alternative doctors and many thousands of persons have contributed to answering the question of “Is there a connection in regard to “gut biology” and mental illness?”
Yes! There IS most definitely a connection in the above regard.
I personally am one of the above mentioned contributors in regard to providing an answer to the question “Is there a connection between “gut biology” and mental illness?”
In the late 1990’s I personally answered the question “Is there a connection between “gut biology” and bipolar disorder?”
YES, there is.
Incidentally, a strong argument can be made that the person that could first solidly answer the above question would have to be a person with a bipolar diagnosis. (I fully qualified in this regard, having had hundreds of severe mood episodes over the thirty four years that I was heavily symptomatic of this illness.)
In August 1999, as the result of original discovery I also answered the question of “Is there a connection between “gut biology” and a state of depression?”
YES, there is. And it is a strong one.
I knowingly risked my life in August 1999 to find the above answer. (This story will soon be told in another blog that I am working on.)
In regard to schizophrenia, I personally did not generate the answer to “Is there a connection between “gut biology” and schizophrenia?” (I could not personally answer this question. I am not schizophrenic.)
However, during the course of my travels to find better answers to mental illness, about nine years ago in Kentucky I did run into a rather profound anecdotal story in regard to gut biology and schizophrenia. In my mind, this anecdotal story did end the search for an answer to the question of “Is there a connection between “gut biology” and schizophrenia?” YES, there is. (This story will be told in another blog.)
In regard to autism, I also did not generate the answer to “Is there a connection between “gut biology” and autism?” However, I did read about a double blind study in 1996 in the U.K. that did make the connection between “gut biology” and autism. (This study was done by Glenn Gibson in 2006.)
Gut Biology, Antibiotics, and Candida
In truth virtually all cases of mental illness have a solid connection to numerous problems in the gut. Some of these numerous “gut problems” are “gut biology problems” in nature.
Antibiotic medications are a major causative factor in regard to the “gut biology” problems that underlie mental illness. This fact is commonly known in alternative medicine. It is also a fact the conventional medicine steadfastly continues to ignore.
Antibiotics use is not the only causative factor of the “gut biology” problems that underlie mental illness. However, antibiotics use is definitely the most common one. Who today has not taken a single course of antibiotics in their life? If you have taken a single course of antibiotics, you are a likely candidate in regard to having “gut biology” problems since.
Taking antibiotics orally can have a lasting negative effect on the biological terrain in the gut. A single course of antibiotics can “mess up” your “gut biology” for decades. It can mess up your “gut biology” until effective corrective action is taken.
Incidentally, no conventionally trained doctor knows anything about “effective corrective action” of “gut biology”. Even many alternative doctors do not quite yet “have things right” in this regard. Ignorance of how to achieve and maintain “good gut biology” is rampant in America amongst both doctors and patients alike. (Thankfully, this knowledge is growing. The Internet is a big reason for this.)
Once one’s population of “good gut bacteria” is lost, it is often not that easy to get it back. Just taking probiotics supplements such acidophilus or bifidus bacteria is not normally “enough to get the job done” in regard to changing one’s gut biology from “really bad” to “really good”.
Good bacteria such as acidophilus or bifidus bacteria cannot, and do not, always “win the war” against the “bad gut biology” that they face when they reach the gut. Often too many of the bacteria in probiotic supplements are killed off before they do “enough good”.
However, even if such probiotics supplementation really seems to help a person to feel better… doing so is still not enough to reach “optimal gut biological health”. Reaching “optimal gut biological health” requires that a number of actions be taken. It never requires just one.
The use of antibiotics often leads to a yeast condition called candidiasis (also called “candida” or “candida overgrowth”). The aforementioned may be true the great majority of the time.
Candida overgrowth as a result of orally taking antibiotic medication is a situation that applies to many hundreds of millions of people worldwide. If you have chronic depression, bipolar disorder, or schizophrenia it is EXTREMELY likely (if not a certainty) that this issue of candida overgrowth applies to you.
Antibiotic medication causes candida overgrowth in a manner that the person taking such medication almost always “has no idea that it led to such”.
I do not intend to tell the whole story here. To do so I would have to literally write a book.
I cannot recommend that readers of this blog begin to educate themselves on the gut and on “gut biology” issues. I recommend this because problematic gut and “gut biology” issues underlie almost every type and every case of mental illness.
The book “No More Heartburn” by Dr. Sherry Rogers is a great place! to start in the above regard. Books written by Bernard Jensen, Alyce Sorokie, Dr. Jonathan Wright, Jordan Rubin, Elizabeth Lipski, and other authors are good places to become self-educated as well. And many egroups and websites on the Internet are great places to learn about the gut and “gut biology” issues in addition to reading books.
Big Pharma Knows Exactly What It Is Doing
How could it be that conventional doctors are making millions of people sick?
Well, this is how…
Medical school curriculum is heavily influenced and controlled by Big Pharma.
Persons that attend medical schools to become doctors are intentionally being mis-educated by Big Pharma.
Conventional medical doctors are not being taught in medical school that after prescribing antibiotics to a patient, this same patient MUST undergo a full course of “gut biology” correction.
What the above means is that conventional medical doctors are unwittingly either (1) causing, or (2) greatly contributing to “gut biology” problems.
These doctor-caused “gut biology” problems underlie the vast majority of cases of mental illness.
Big Pharma’s goal at all times is to increase industry profits as much as is practical or possible to do so.
The best way to do the above (and achieve the best fiscal results, of course) is to have the doctors attending medical school trained to be “their unwitting stooges” to “make us all at least a little sick”.
The “biggest tools” in Big Pharma’s arsenal in the above regard are vaccines and antibiotics. (Of course, the use of both is heavily promoted.)
Big Pharma knows what is going on in regard to “gut biology”.
Big Pharma is aware that antibiotics seriously mess up “gut biology”.
Big Pharma is also aware that a course of antibiotics virtually decimates practically the entire population that you may have of any “good bacteria” in your gut. (Big Pharma should know this. It is both scientific and biological fact.)
Biology in the gut competes for food, water, oxygen (sometimes), and space.
Big Pharma is aware that when antibiotics decimate the “good bacteria” in your gut, various “bad bacteria”, yeasts, molds, fungi, and/or parasites “take over”.
The population of “bad biology” in your gut increases after a course of antibiotics you have taken is completed. And when the population of this “bad biology” in your gut increases, it “crowd outs” the “good stuff”.
A high population of “bad biology” in the gut of a person makes it nearly impossible for a small number of “good bacteria” to repopulate to an adequate level of “good gut biology” on their own.
Big Pharma is completely aware that “good gut biology” is ESSENTIAL to optimal digestive, mental, and physical health.
Big Pharma’s Hidden Agenda
Big Pharma simply does not care about people becoming healthier. They do not care about “gut biology” issues at all. All that they care about is the money they make, and the more the better. And to do this, they are willing to do anything, including intentionally making people sick (as long as they think that they can get away with this).
Big Pharma is not simply promoting antibiotics just for the money made selling these particular medications.
Big Pharma has another far more insidious hidden fiscal agenda here as well. It is one that involves them making far more money than simply from selling antibiotic medications.
Big Pharma knows that if a person has “bad gut biology” it ALWAYS means that he or she also has a high toxic load. Bad gut biology releases a myriad of toxins on a daily basis.
Some of this toxic release from bad gut biology gets “absorbed into us”. It results in a person having “a high toxic load”.
This high toxic load burdens the liver, the brain, and the body as a whole… as these poisons are circulated throughout every organ and cell in your body.
A high toxic load also burdens one’s “functional nutrient status” as well.
Toxins need to be dealt with adequately on a daily basis (or you will become sick or even die). They either (1) need to be “locked up” such that their harm to you is minimized, or (2) they need to be mobilized and excreted out of the body.
Doing either of the above processes is a “nutrient dependent equation”. Dealing with toxins takes certain nutrients. And these nutrients are “used up” in the process of doing so.
All detoxification pathways in the body are “nutrient dependent”. One author I respect (Sidney MacDonald Baker, M.D.) that I read on detoxification stated that about 70% of one’s metabolic intake (food and water) is often used, and USED UP, in the process of “sanitation” (cleaning up waste products and toxins on a daily basis).
Besides this issue of high toxic load, Big Pharma also knows that if a person has “bad gut biology” it ALWAYS means that he or she has a significant degree of malabsorption (of essential nutrition) as well.
Big Pharma is “licking its lips” as a result of the malabsorption that they are causing with antibiotics. They have been “licking their lips” for decades in this regard.
Big Pharma knows that “malabsorption” is VERY good for their bottom line. This is because malabsorption means that people will be undernourished, regardless of whether they eat enough good food or not.
Big Pharma knows that over a span of years (or decades) a high toxic load and a lack of essential nutrition in the body… can cause or contribute to virtually every mental or degenerative illness under the sun.
The over-prescription of antibiotics, while ignoring the fact that these medications have a very detrimental effect on gut biological health, is making millions of people “sick” with a myriad of different mental, physical, and degenerative illnesses in a very sneaky way.
The American Public Is Waking Up
The connection between antibiotics use, bad gut biology, and mental illness has been made by hundreds of alternative doctors and tens of thousands of persons over the past few decades.
Some gut and “gut biology” issues are “almost common knowledge” today, especially in communities and areas of the United States that are a bit more progressive than others.
Evidence in regard to “good gut biology” being ESSENTIAL to optimal digestive, mental, and physical health exists in dozens of books going back for a few decades at least.
Evidence in the above regard also exists in hundreds, if not thousands, of websites on the Internet.
In addition to the above, evidence in the above regard also exists in tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of anecdotal cases that have been generated over the past few decades as well.
My own anecdotal “gut story” regarding “bad gut biology” absolutely cements the connection between “bad gut biology” and bipolar disorder, and “bad gut biology” and a state of depression.
The Perfect Crime (Almost)
Antibiotics are making people sick in a manner that Big Pharma thinks that it “won’t get caught”. (Big Pharma apparently assumes that the American public is either too stupid, too lazy, or too brainwashed on TV to do so.)
The “perfect crime” is being committed here. It is a crime that has led to the rapid decline in health in America ever since the regular prescription of antibiotics became “the norm” in medicine. And it is a crime that has made Big Pharma trillions of dollars over the years.
Well, Big Pharma… I have some bad news for you. Your “perfect crime” was not so perfect after all.
You finally got caught.
Antibiotic medication IS a major causative factor in “bad gut biology”. There is no doubt about this. The anecdotal evidence is absolutely overwhelming in this regard. (And it has been absolutely overwhelming for many years.)
“Bad gut biology” IS a major causative factor in depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and autism… if not every mental illness “under the sun”.
I wonder what Americans are going to think of drug oriented medicine when they realize what I and a number of other people now know.
What do we know?
We know for certain that the explosion of mental illness over the past four decades or so WAS NOT simply due to the erosion of the quality of our national food supply, or the fact that hidden food allergies are rampantly “undiagnosed”.
The explosion of mental illness over the past four decades or so WAS NOT simply due to the myriad of toxins that have seeped into our water, our food, and the air.
The explosion of mental illness in America over the past forty years or so had a sneaky “hidden cause”… and one with intent behind it (at least for the past few decades or so).
This “hidden cause” for explosion of mental illness in America since the 70′s WAS the damage antibiotics cause to “good biology” in the gut.
