Some readers know that there is system of energy centers that runs along the central vertical axis of human and animal bodies.

These centers are essential for health.  When they are weak, damaged, spin incorrectly, or are even too bright and shining, they cause disease in the physical and emotional bodies of the person in whom these imbalances exist.


Detecting the energy centers.  The energy centers can be detected with a special camera system called Kirlian photography or electrophotography.  It is also sometimes called mineral photography because the assessment utilizes certain minerals that are revealed on a hair mineral analysis, as well.

These minerals are calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium and phosphorus. They are quite easy to read on a hair tissue analysis.  These often correlate with the energy centers in a most amazing manner.

Here is the basic correlation of the minerals with the first seven energy centers.






The first energy center is located between your legs, starting about one inch inside above the anal area.  It has a funnel shape that points downward, more or less.  This center is all about staying grounded and centered, and it is about survival and life itself.  It connects a person with the earth, which is vital for our life and health.


Calcium is called the life mineral.  It forms compounds like cement and concrete that are grounded, hard, “calcified”, and tough.  It forms our bones, which are the place where our blood is made, and which keeps the body structure in place.


Cancer and the first center.  Grounding is the opposite of cancer, interestingly.  Those with cancer are on their way out of this world.  If one becomes more grounded, cancer usually goes away or gets much better.  So the first energy center is very important for cancer patients.


First center calcium foods.  The following foods tend to strengthen and balance the first energy center:


1. Cooked vegetables.  Raw vegetables will not work because humans and many animals cannot absorb enough of the minerals from raw vegetables due to the very tough fiber in raw vegetables.  Also, raw vegetables are quite yin, which is not helpful.

Excellent calcium foods are the roots, in particular, such as carrots, rutabaga, daikon, ginger root and garlic.  Some of these at every meal is very life-giving.

Other good roots, to a degree, are burdock root and horseradish root.  They are less important, however, and should not be eaten often.

Other vital vegetables are all of the onion family – white, red, sweet or Vidalia, yellow, green, leeks shallots, boiler onions and red, white and gold pearl onions.  Some of these should also be eaten with every meal.

The other group of vegetables that are essential are Brussels sprouts, red cabbage, green beans and broccolini or baby broccoli.

   2. Roasted almond butter.  This works well as a calcium source, and is better than raw almond butter because it is more yang.


Problems of the first energy center.  These usually show up on a hair mineral test in one of two ways:

1. Hair calcium of about 20 mg% or less, that occurs in some fast oxidizers, OR

2. Hair calcium of about 100 mg% or more, that occurs in some slow oxidizers.  Many cancer patients have a very high hair tissue calcium because it is being lost to the body and is depositing in the soft tissues such as the hair.


Women and the first energy center.  Problems in the first energy center are more common in women, today.  This is partly due to their urban lifestyles, and partly due to a peculiarity of their energy centers that makes this one harder to develop for a woman than for a man.  It is one reason I strongly suggest the Roy Masters meditation for all women, and I suggest avoiding all other meditation exercises, as well, because they don’t move enough energy downward into the first energy center. 

Women are also prone to more problems with this center if they wear high-heeled shoes, if they show off their bodies, if they wear tight clothing, and if they work or live in high-rise apartments or other buildings.  All of these make grounding more difficult.  Emotionality also opposes grounding, and many women are more emotional, at times due to a higher copper level than men, or for other reasons such as greater sensitivity.


Activities that help the first energy center.  In addition to the Roy Masters exercise, walking, gardening, farming, and wearing low shoes are helpful for the first energy center.




The second energy center is located in the front of the lower abdomen, about 2 inches below the belly button in most adults.  It also extends out the lower back at the same level.  It has to do primarily with survival, as well, but reproductive survival or sexual relationships.  It also has to do with separating male from female, and separating yang from yin.


Potassium is an opposite to calcium, and the energy center system is based on alternating qualities that oppose and complement.

Potassium is also the polarizing mineral.  The second energy center polarizes a person into male or female, and in other ways, too.  We also say that the second energy center has to do with taking sides, which is similar to polarization.

Orgasms depolarize the body.  This is very relaxing, but not healthful.  Fewer are better, in fact.

Potassium is also the death mineral.  This is because it dissolves things (and not because it kills things).  Sex has a way of dissolving certain kinds of tension.  This is a major reason people like it.  Too much sex with orgasm also kills, and it does this by depolarizing and depleting the body.

Potassium is also an emotional element as well.  It is associated with love.  Often, potassium on a hair mineral analysis rises on its own when people are in love.  The reason is that the person is so happy that nothing matters much.  As a result, the autonomic nervous system relaxes and balances.  This is what causes the hair potassium level to increase.  When the level is above 4 mg%, the autonomic nervous system is usually functioning better.


Cancer and the second center.  Cancer patients are universally unhappy.  That is, they are not happy with their lives, so their potassium levels drop for this reason.

When potassium is deranged or missing, illness usually occurs soon after.  Cancer patients need plenty of the right kind of potassium in their diets.


Second center potassium foods.  Many potassium compounds exist.  The kind found in cooked vegetables is of a type that seems to be best for this energy center.  It is also found in roasted almond butter and in some dairy products.

In contrast, we do not like the form of potassium found in potassium supplements or in fruit.  Fruit takes up a lot of the toxic potassium found in superphosphate fertilizers, also called N-P-K fertilizers.  This is a cheap, toxic form of potassium that makes plants grow, but is not good for our bodies.  All fruit tends to be fertilized with N-P-K fertilizers, even organically grown fruit.  Vegetables are also grown with this fertilizer, but they don’t absorb as much of it, perhaps because they are more yang than fruits.

Fruits are the ovaries of plants.  The potassium in the N-P-K fertilizers seems to have an affinity for the sexual organs, because we also find them in people who have a lot of sex, and in babies who have just emerged from their mothers’ sexual organs.  Perhaps this is related to the fact that potassium is the primary second center mineral.  For more details, read Toxic Potassium.


Problems in the second energy center.  These are often revealed on a hair mineral analysis. 

For accurate hair potassium readings, the hair sample must not be washed at the laboratory at all.  This is very important.  Washing the hair washes out sodium easily!  However, washing the hair while it is on the head does not have this effect because the sweat and oil glands replenish the sodium quickly after showering.  Problems with potassium show up as either:


1. A low potassium (less than about 4 mg%), as occurs in some slow oxidizers, usually OR

2. High potassium (greater than about 15 mg%), usually with a low sodium/potassium ratio.  This usually occurs in faster oxidizers, and men, in particular.  This pattern is called a burned out fast oxidizer.  This can be due to a sexual nature that is not under good control.

Many babies, however, also have a fast oxidation rate with a low sodium/potassium ratio.  Here the cause is a lot of etheric energy that is not well-controlled, so it is spilling over, so to speak, to the baby’s detriment in almost all cases.


Activities that help the second energy center.  Down sex is very good.  A healthy, heterosexual marriage is very good. 

Have ordinary sex with orgasm as little as possible, and no more than once a week.  Also, keep your thoughts pure in this area.  This means avoid pornography, sexy movies, books, and photos, and other less healthy sexual involvements.

All the grounding activities listed for the first energy center in the section above are also very good.  For details, read Down Sex.




The third energy center is located about one inch above the navel on the front of the body, and also extends out through the mid-back.  This center has to do with power and control.  It also has to do with proper digestion in the stomach and small intestine, with help from the liver and pancreas.  It also has to do with dissolving the ego structure of man and woman.  It is quite deranged in many people.


Sodium.  This important mineral is a synergist and an antagonist with potassium.

Sodium we call the volatility element.  Aldosterone, an adrenal hormone, causes sodium retention in the body.  Low sodium can be caused by reduced adrenal activity.  That is, there is little volatility, and indeed there is little physical strength or activity at all.

Sodium is also a powerful solvent mineral.  This may be why it helps dissolve the ego structure as a person advances spiritually.  Enough of the proper sodium is required at this stage of a person’s mental and spiritual development or one will feel weak and sickly.

The medical advice to “avoid salt” because it causes high blood pressure is usually incorrect.  What is needed is to avoid table salt, which is a horrible refined junk food.  Most of the beneficial trace minerals have been removed from it.  In addition, aluminum, a toxic metal, is often added as a flowing agent.  No wonder it damages the body.  Natural sea salt, however, usually does not raise the blood pressure, and is very necessary for everyone today.


Third center sodium foods.  Good sources of the form of sodium needed at this level of development include the sodium found in all meats and in kelp, a sea vegetable.  The other excellent source is in some brands of sea salt. 

In contrast, the sodium in celery and in table salt, by itself or added to most processed foods, is not as good and can get in the way of the good sodium found in good quality sea salt.  A little table salt is hard to avoid, and is okay - such as the small amount added to butter.


Cancer and the third center.  Cancer has something to do with holding on to the ego structure.  This is why faith and belief are often so helpful for cancer.  They can actually cause a full-blow cancer to disappear within a short amount of time when a real change takes place in a person.  This is real, and is wonderful to recall.


Problems with this center.  These are very common!  They cause low hair sodium levels, in most cases.  This is the prime indicator on a hair mineral analysis of adrenal exhaustion or burnout.  It is a world epidemic, today.  A few adults have high sodium levels if they are toxic, too aggressive or angry.  Babies and young children often have high hair sodium readings because they have a lot of etheric energy, which stimulates the adrenal glands.

For accurate hair sodium readings, the hair sample must not be washed at the laboratory at all.  This is very important.  Washing the hair washes out sodium easily!  However, washing the hair while it is on the head does not have this effect because the sweat and oil glands replenish the sodium quickly after showering.


Activities to help the third center.  These include spiritual reading such as the Bible.  They also include service to others, including jobs or careers in which you assist others, and not just yourself.




Calcium.  This may seem odd, but this energy center is associated with a different form of calcium than the first energy center. 


The fourth energy center is located in the middle of the chest, around the level of the heart.  The fourth center has to do with give and take, casual and business relationships, and generally with letting go of too much intensity and seriousness in your dealings with other people.  To succeed here, one needs a good “calcium structure” to hold you together as you interact with others in the world.

The fourth energy center also represents the beginning of spiritual development.  This is a new “life structure” for a human being, and calcium is the basic life or structural element.

This development is a very complex and lengthy process, which cannot be done by human beings all on their own.  I write about it a little on this website in articles such as Introduction To Mental Development, and a number of others.


Fourth center calcium foods.  The same foods listed for the first center contain the needed forms of calcium to help develop this center.  These are cooked vegetables, a little carrot juice, and roasted almond butter.


Cancer and the fourth center.  In many cases of cancer, the fourth energy center is not developed adequately.  Calcium is also often too high and biounavailable, as it is a form of calcium that cannot be used properly. 

In these cases, some sesame tahini, an excellent source of fourth center calcium, may help reduce estrogen and thus block some cancer.  The Johanna Budwig protocol for cancer happens to be high in calcium, (from cottage cheese and flaxseeds), and this may be one reason it is helpful – but only in some cases.


Problems with the fourth energy center. Derangements of the fourth energy center often have to do with what is called biounavailable calcium.

This biounavailability has to do with the compound of the calcium, not the valence or something else.  It has to do with the binding of calcium to other minerals, especially phosphorus.  These two minerals bind together easily, forming calcium phosphate, for example, which is a hard, fairly insoluble form of calcium.


Activities to help the fourth center.  These include meeting people, learning how to be social, relaxing with people, letting go of all hesitation with people, and work or personal situations in which you interact casually with people.  Many work situations are excellent for this, such as working in a store or in an office with others.

Women often have more trouble with this center mainly due to fear.  Very social behavior of a woman can lead to rape, so many women hold back in this area.




The fifth energy center is located on the front of the body at the level of the Adam’s apple or thyroid gland.  It also extends out the back of the neck at the same level on the body.

The fifth center has to do with expression of all kinds.  It is located at the level of the vocal chords, but it has to do with many kinds of expression, not just speaking or singing.  It has to do also with writing, musical expression, art, engineering and science, and other types of expression.  It is one of the more advanced energy centers that is not too active in most people.

The fifth energy center also has to do with dissolving a special part of the ego of mankind.  The ego can be divided into two parts at this stage of a person’s development.  One part is dissatisfied with life and wants to develop spiritually.  The other part is more immature and does not want to change at all.  The fifth energy center has to do with dissolving this laggard part of the ego.

The fourth energy center admits others into one’s world, but the fifth has to do with obliterating the self to a greater degree, as does each succeeding energy center. 


Sodium.  The development of this energy center requires a different form of sodium.  This sodium is associated with a certain power and ability to express oneself clearly and forcefully without much effort.


Fifth center sodium foods.  These are the seed butters, mainly.  This form of sodium is not found in kelp, meats or sea salt.

However, most people are not at this level, so we do not recommend eating much seed butter.  In fact, eating a lot of this food can be harmful for most people because they are not ready for it, and it is not needed.


Cancer and the fifth center.  Cancer can occur due to problems in the fifth center, which are more common in women, once again, although they occur in both men and women.

Here the problem is that some people have been suppressed in their self-expression.  This happens for cultural reasons, such as in the Middle East.  It can also happen due to a strong partner, for example, or a strong parent who does not allow a partner or child to express herself or himself.

The special type of sodium needed for the fifth energy center is often missing in cancer patients.  This may be another reason that the Budwig cancer protocol is helpful, since flaxseed oil and other seed oils may contain some of it.  Other anti-cancer products such as Cantron or Protocel may also work by changing this energy center by supplying a correct form of sodium.


Problems with the fifth center.  Hair mineral tests may not reveal this form of sodium.  More research is needed on this topic.


Activities that help the fifth center.  These include any activity in which a person expresses himself or herself.  Examples include playing music, singing, writing, public speaking, doing artistic work, building things, and more along these lines.




The sixth energy center begins near the pituitary gland, which is more or less in the center of the brain.  The sixth center is a double funnel that widens out a lot as it moves away from the pituitary area.


Silicon is a mineral associated with the sixth center.  Silicon is an advanced female mineral associated with knowledge, wisdom and higher development.  Perhaps it is no accident that many of the computer “chips” are made of silicon – a powerful semiconductor.  This simply means that it can change from a conductor to a non-conductor easily with the right stimulus.

Silicon also gives a person impact.  This is also related to the semiconductor aspect of silicon.  It can “switch” on you quickly, sending an impulse through the brain and elsewhere. 

At the same time, silicon has a quality of smoothness or silkiness.  Indeed, silk is quite high in a form of silicon, as is glass, another smooth substance.


Sixth center silicon foods.  The special form of silicon needed for this center is not found much on earth today.  It is found to a degree in mustard, sardines and blue corn.  For this reason, these food should be considered special gifts to humanity from the masters and the Radiant One, who is our Creator.

Cancer and the sixth center.  The sixth energy center is not well-developed in most people.  This  can cause some cancer if a person’s ideas and beliefs are wrong, causing a person to live incorrectly or unwisely.  Cancer rarely occurs when this center is active, but that is rare today.


Activities that help the sixth center.  These include learning, such as reading this website (excellent).  At the same time, one must avoid reading or studying material that is false, fake, or incorrect in any way.

Any studying, however, can be helpful, especially if one uses the power of discernment to try to figure out if the material is correct and how to use it.




The seventh energy center is located near the crown of the head.  It is also called the crown center.  It begins at the pineal gland located near the middle of the adult brain.  This center is a single funnel that extends and widens as it moves upward out the top of the head at the crown.  It is not too active in most people, especially children.

This center has to do with wisdom, but of a spiritual nature.  This center allows a person connect with the higher self, the Holy Spirit, or God in order to obtain information and answers to deeply-sought questions.


Selenium is an advanced male mineral associated with advanced development.  It is also a semiconductor


Seventh center selenium foods.  Just as with silicon, this form of selenium for the body is special and not found much on earth today.  It is found to a degree in mustard, sardines and blue corn.  It is not found in most other sources of selenium such as brazil nuts, nut butters or elsewhere.


Cancer and the seventh center.  Many people today have a seventh center that is slightly open.  This can open a person to some forms of cancer.

If this center is wide open, cancer usually does not arise.  This is because the person has enough development to ward off the trophoblast transformation, as some call it.  This has to do with having enough etheric energy flowing through the body, which prevents the trophoblast from growing when it is not supposed to do so.


Problems with this center.  Hair mineral testing may or may not reveal a low selenium level in people deficient in this particular form of selenium.


Activities that help the seventh center.  These include attending church and praying.  Also, doing the pushing down exercise is excellent.  Avoid most other mental exercises and practices because they move energy in the wrong direction.

  Other spiritual activities may also be helpful, such as reading other spiritual texts, going to spiritual centers for healing, and practicing a valid religion such as Christianity.




These reside off the physical body, above the head, in most cases.  These are also related to sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium.  These, also, are usually quite out of balance in the cancer patient.


Magnesium.  I have not mentioned magnesium, so far, because it is involved in all the energy centers.  Magnesium is a critical mineral that is deficient today in almost everyone.  The reason for this is that there are few good sources of it in our world.

For example, whole grains contain some magnesium, but not enough.  This is due to modern industrial agricultural methods that do not replace enough magnesium on the soil.  Also, worn out soil does not contain enough that is usable, even if it is added.

Magnesium is literally the spark of life.  We call it the bright and shining element because it is needed for so many enzymes that give us life and love.  Without enough, cancer develops easily in most people.  So do not forget this mineral.  You can find plenty of it in kelp, for example, and in some cooked vegetables.


Zinc.  We have not discussed zinc, either.  It is more associated with an even more advanced energy center than any mentioned so far.  Yet it is developing today in many people, especially those on a complete nutritional balancing program.  All of this article has to do with mental or spiritual development, and how it relates to the major minerals on a hair mineral chart.




The main troubles with raw vegetable salads are:

1. Our bodies cannot break down the tough vegetable fibers, no matter what anyone claims.  As a result, even if you eat magnesium-rich foods such as whole grains or vegetables or fruit, if you eat them raw you will not obtain much magnesium, zinc, calcium and other vital minerals. 

In a way, the food analysis charts are wrong! They list all the wonderful minerals and other substances in vegetables and some fruits.  However, they don’t tell you that if you eat the food raw, you will not receive nearly as much of all these wonderful nutrients.  The reason is your body cannot break down the tough vegetable fibers, within which are the nutrients in many instances.

2. Raw food is much more yin, and this is a problem because today’s bodies are already very yin.  It was much less of a problem about 80 years ago when Max Gerson, MD set up his cancer protocols.

Today, however, due to radiation from A-bomb fallout and other sources, depleted soils and foods, toxic chemicals, toxic metals everywhere and electromagnetic stress, the bodies are much more yin.  So his therapy does not work as well today.

So I suggest avoiding most salad, and all fruit, trail mix, granola, raw muesli, and most other raw food.  This is important today for full recovery from cancer and most other disease.

We allow four ounces daily of raw dairy, but dairy products are not needed for development.  We also allow a few dried olives per week, expecially the botija olives.


Why not lots of juices for cancer?  Some people say, well then I will just drink vegetable juices all day.  The problem with that is they are extremely yin in macrobiotic terminology.  As a result, even if you get the magnesium and other elements, they throw the body far out of balance eventually.  They are okay for a month or two, but no longer.

Juices are also hard on your digestion.  In addition to being very yin, juices, especially if taken with a meal, contain too much liquid, and often contain a lot of sugar that is upsetting to the body.

Smoothies even worse.  Many people want to get their nutrients from smoothies and shakes, today.  However, these are also extremely yin because they contain isolated or fractionated foods.  They also usually contain too much water for our digestive tract to handle, often too much sugar or sweetener, and often contain poor food combinations such as protein powder with sweets and vegetables.  This is quite hard on the digestive tract, even if it tastes and feels very good.

So please listen and do not live on these popular foods, such as fruit and salads, and do not use smoothies or shakes or much juice.  We allow 10-12 ounces of carrot juice only.  Carrots are quite yang because they are a root.  Even this much upsets some people’s digestion, however.  Always drink it a alone, and not with a meal. 

Some people do better on one or two ounces of wheat grass juice, instead, and this is fine for about two days a week.  The rest of the time have carrot juice.

Also, we do not like green juices and green drinks.  They are much more yin because greens are more yin.  Green powders also go rancid easily, and this is not helpful.


This is a basic understanding of the energy center system and how it relates to a tissue mineral test, and to certain aspects of the problem of cancer.
