to answer the question of why there are so many allergic people,
we need to consider the Concept of the Total Load
. Let us imagine an arbitrary line below which
an individual's body reacts (or handles) foreign substances
(allergens or insults) in a way such that no overt symptoms
develop (i.e., asymptomatic ), and
above which there may be a myriad of symptoms ( symptomatic
) such as runny nose, coughing, wheezing and
asthma, headache or other cerebral symptoms, tiredness, bellyaches,
diarrhea or constipation, etc.
Many are asymptomatically
allergic , if I could be so bold as to coin
a term (which at first might suggest that it is an oxymoron
), to many items, such as foods. All of a sudden
they are symptomatically allergic to
pollens which push their system above the imaginary line mentioned
We can treat this problem
by identifying the pollen and removing it from the environment
or take a drug which as natural physicians we do not recommend.
Or we could remove one or more of the foods to which one is
asymptomatically allergic which will lower the entire threshold
pulling the individual's response below the imaginary line
We find many individuals
asymptomatically allergic to foods such as milk, corn, wheat,
yeast, etc. Once these foods are completely
removed from the diet the person becomes asymptomatic to another
known allergic substance (allergen). Once the person's system
is cleansed of these potentially allergic foods he loses his
symptoms to the known allergen even though he is still exposed.
After the period of
cleansing we can reintroduce each food one by one until we
find a food high up on the symptomatic allergen list. Ordinarily,
one can consume a mildly symptomatic food allergen no more
than once every 3-4 day. The exceptions are peanut, nut, and
shellfish allergy in which case these should be completely
eliminated from the diet indefinitely. Allergy to the latter
mentioned foods are in a different class and since a person
allergic to them may die within minutes, we recommend they
never be eaten.
Our protocol consists
of eliminating certain foods entirely from the diet over a
period of 30-45 days. There are foods which the individual
can continue to consume, but never more than once every 3-4
days during the first cleansing period.
During this time we
add powdered Vitamin C in moderately large doses according
to a separate protocol. Additionally, we begin to taper whatever
prescription drugs the patient is taking. This may take one
to three weeks depending upon how many drugs are being consumed.
The success of this stage depends entirely upon how vigorous
to which the diet is adhered.
Our program works no
matter what your private conventional Pediatrician or Medical
Doctor might tell you. They do not know because they have
no experience. And, if they tell you that our plan is “A lot
of crock,”ask them if they have tried it? If they answer they
have not, then ask yourself : “Who is the
Another note of caution
and I write this as frankly as I can. Do not decide not to
employ our program because we do not take insurance. You get
in this world what you pay for, and, if you pay nothing for
something, it is usually worth just that – nothing.
Even though I now live
in Panama we can provide you a protocol to follow and communicate
by email. On occasion we may want to perform some laboratory
analysis. I am licensed in the state of Maryland and can order
them. Most of the time it may be sufficient to get a copy
of test results which your private medical doctor has already
Our protocol was developed
years ago when we knew anything about the Concept
of the Total Load . But following these principles
have allowed us to perfect the protocol and understand why
This protocol is not
for the timid. It will take the energies of the 3 C's: commitment,
commitment, and commitment. But, if you are plagued with a
child with autism or Tourettes or severe ADHD , what is the
problem? Returning a child (or adult) to being a normal and
productive human being is reward enough. If the Protocol does
not work (and we have as yet to see this)what have you lost?
SO MANY PEOPLE ALLERGIC?
I will digress a bit
here to ask the question I posed earlier: “Why are so many
people allergic?” We did not see this 50-100 years ago. Just
look at the foods we buy at the stores. They almost all have
additives in one form or another. Corn and wheat are grown
in no till farms which require tons of herbicides, fertilizers,
and chemical fertilizers. What happened to the farming principles
when we rotated crops planting legumes such as clover, rape,
and alfalfa every other year to fix nitrogen gas (80% of air)
into the soil as soluble nitrogen salts for utilization by
plants which are unable to fix nitrogen but still require
it for growth?
Many of the chemical
herbicides (to control weed growth) and pesticides (to control
growth of noxious bugs) are absorbed by the plant and get
into the grain, vegetable or fruit. But, fear not, our government
determines what are safe amounts of these poisons in the final
food product? But, the question to ask is: “Is there a safe
level of a poison which nature never
intended to get into the food chain?”
What about the animals
we eat as food? They eat pesticide- and herbicide-contaminated
grains. These chemicals get into the animal's system. We consume
the meat. Another dangerous aspect of these chemicals is that
the humans and animals have no way of ridding their bodies
of these chemicals. They lack the detoxifying enzymes to destroy
or eliminate these man made chemicals. I have often wondered
whether the same thing akin to what happened to the eagle
and osprey who ingested DDT. As a result of ingesting DDT,
the egg shells were so soft that the babies never hatched.
And these two species of birds were decimated because of the
DDT spraying program. Thankfully, since we stopped using DDT
as a mosquito pesticide these two species are recovering.
But, it took years for recovery.
Are humans faring any
better? Pesticides and herbicides accumulate within the human
body. Mothers pass theses chemicals to their embryos, and
children develop so many medical problems.
It is most difficult
to grow up in a contaminated planet without getting contaminated.
One does not need to attend a Jesuit school (as I did!) to
understand the logic behind this statement.
On TV we view programs
describing gross chemical contamination (e.g., the Love Canal
Affair in Niagara Falls, NY in the late 1950's; Erin Brokovich's
experience in Hinckley, in the Mojave area of California in
the late 1980's: she wrote a book which was made into a popular
movie; to name only two). What we are experiencing with food
contamination is below the radar screen. It is still dangerous
because it is insidious and slow, but it is still there. These
aspects of insidiousness and slowness make it very difficult
to establish cause and effect scientifically. Nevertheless
we must try to explain why the response of the human body
Another aspect of prepared
foods is that there are some foods found in many other prepared
food products. Milk or a milk derivative (milk solids, whey
protein, casein, etc.) can be found in many prepared foods.
How about corn as corn sweetener, corn solids, etc? How about
wheat? Did you know that there is wheat in Cherrios which
is supposed to be made of oats? Begin to read labels and educate
When we eat any particular
food (e.g., milk, corn, wheat, etc.) every day, we set ourselves
up to develop a propensity for an allergy to the food. Believe
me, my experience tells me it is so. Consuming prepared foods
such as just described is not a good practice. Our protocol
is designed to overcome this very bad eating practice.
