CONDITIONS THAT RESPOND THE BEST AND CAUTIONS WITH NUTRITIONAL BALANCING

I am often asked by doctors and patients if nutritional balancing is for everyone. They ask if there conditions for which this program is not appropriate, or if special modifications are required.
Let us begin with childrenÕs physical health conditions. We enjoy working with children because they have more vital force or energy in their small bodies than most adults. As a result, they respond much faster in many cases than adults.
Children also require many fewer tablets as well. I usually recommend adult products in small doses. If a child has trouble swallowing pills, one may crush, grind up or mix the products with food the child enjoys. This is usually not difficult.
I do very well with conditions such as chronic or acute infections, even recurrent infections for several years running. We do well with ear infections, for example, and throat infections. We can usually handle even chronic ailments such as asthma, allergies, wounds the wonÕt heal, runny noses and so forth.
ChildrenÕs mental and emotional conditions also respond excellent in most instances. These include, but are not limited to ADHD, anxiety and depression, many learning problems and even autism, although that will take longer in some cases. Food intolerances and gut problems must be handled first in some of these children. Then the toxic metals and toxic chemicals and vaccine residues can be removed.
Delayed Development. We also help many children with genetic problems or birth defects, some quite severe. Often nutritional imbalances are involved here as causes and contributors to these childrenÕs many symptoms and delayed development.
The near infrared sauna or a single reddish heat lamp shined on the abdomen. This can help with difficult childrenÕs conditions, just as it helps most adults. Babies, for example, generally love having a reddish heat lamp shined on the abdomen for 10-15 minutes once or twice daily.
Most adult conditions also respond excellently if one is willing to do all or even most of the program. This means following a healthful diet with a lot of cooked vegetables, the hardest part for many people. It also means drinking only distilled or spring water, lots of rest and sleep and a healthful lifestyle.
For fastest results, and sometimes it is the only way to obtain good results, one must add the detoxification procedures. These are daily use of a near or far infrared sauna, although the near infrared type has many advantages. I encourage those who own a far infrared type to convert it by adding the lamps to it. This is explained in a separate article on this website, Sauna Conversion.
The other procedure that is extremely helpful for adults, in particular, though it could be used with children with more difficulty, is the daily coffee enema. I cannot overemphasize how helpful this is, based on client reports to us. It takes some getting used to, and is difficult for those with hemorrhoids. Otherwise, it is amazingly helpful for many conditions as it slowly cleans out the liver, and helps to restore the colon as well.
Adults, in particular, who will not do these procedures will make slower progress, as a rule. Those who do the entire program do extremely well in many instances with many types of health conditions.
Physical Health Conditions. Conditions that respond very well are many cases of chronic fatigue, arthritis and other joint problems, digestive disturbances and insomnia, to name just a few. Menstrual difficulties, skin diseases, impotence and others often respond well. Cardiovascular, pulmonary, renal and other systemic diseases can do very well. Diabetes can respond very quickly, but the person must change the diet, sometimes drastically, and must eliminate coffee, for example, if one has the coffee habit.
Some more unusual cases that do very well include ParkinsonÕs disease if caught early, MS if caught early, and many cases of epilepsy and seizure disorders.
Inability to heal wounds or post-surgical problems also respond excellently in almost all cases.
I do not suggest nutritional balancing for active cancer. This is important. However, I will place a person on a nutritional balancing program provided the person is doing a conventional cancer treatment method and is not interested in alternative or natural cancer therapy. In this case, the nutritional balancing program is simply done for nutritional support, and not for cancer.
I will always suggest that one consider other natural therapies for cancer, such as the Kelley metabolic cancer therapy or perhaps Protocel, a stand-alone remedy that is not quite as good as the Kelley program, but is very inexpensive and helps some people. Cancer is discussed below in more detail.
Mental And Emotional Health Conditions in Adults. These also respond excellently in most situations. The reason is that in most cases, nutritional and other biochemical imbalances play such large roles in some or even all of these conditions, that correcting the body chemistry goes a long way toward restoring oneÕs joy and even disposition. I wish this were more recognized among the medical and psychological professions.
Conditions that respond well include many cases of depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, mood swings, nervous irritability, brain fog, burnout, and even some types of schizophrenia.
ADVANCED AMYOTROPHIC LATERAL SCLEROSIS (LOU GERHIGÕS DISEASE AND MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS
The nutritional balancing program is not designed especially for advanced cases of ALS and MS. Early cases of MS have responded perfectly. Later stage cases of MS, however, are more problematic. I have not worked with many of these cases, so more research may be helpful. Problems that one encounters with the more advanced cases may include:
The person may not be able to use the sauna and may have trouble doing coffee enemas without an attendant. These are among the very instances when I might suggest trying intravenous chelation of mercury with agents such as DMPS or DMSA, as mercury is often involved in cases of MS and possibly ALS as well.
If one has active cancer or any kind or stage, we do not recommend the nutritional balancing system until the cancer is in remission. This is because cancer has a timeline and there are faster methods to bring it under control or even get rid of it entirely. Once this occurs, nutritional balancing is superb for continuing the healing process.
When someone is diagnosed with cancer and asks my opinion about treatments, I attempt to present all the options that I am aware of. These fall into two broad categories.
Conventional Therapy. One can do conventional surgery, radiation or chemotherapy. However, it is often barbaric, extremely costly and very toxic as well. Often, the patient is not told the entire truth about possible bad outcomes and side effects. For example, most people do not realize that studies done on animals with chemotherapy agents usually only last 90 days. If the rats die early, the dead animals are not counted as failures because they did not finish the study.
Also, when a doctor tells you the Òcure rateÓ for their therapy, it is only a five-year survival rate. If you were to die one day after five years of treatment, they would count you as ÒcuredÓ for their statistical assessment. This is a horrible deception on the medical professionÕs part that misleads patients into going through chemotherapy, or the worst treatment, radiation. I hope this will be corrected some day, but there is not evidence it will change soon.
In other cases, including one in my own family, doctors donÕt want you to know the horrible truth about their conventional therapies because they figure there are no other options. However, there are some excellent alternatives in many cases.
Alternative Therapies. I currently recommend two alternative therapies. There are many others, but I have the most experience with these and I know the people and the subject fairly well. Cancer is not something to Òfool around withÓ and one wants the best and only the best.
The best program out there in many ways is the Kelley metabolic cancer therapy. At the end of this article is a link to read more about this excellent method.
The Kelley program, as it is called, uses a near infrared sauna, along with coffee enemas, an excellent diet, lots of rest and sleep and a natural chemotherapy agent, pancreatic enzymes. The only drawback of this program is its cost. The cost is about $800-1200 per month for a year or more.
The contact we are using for this program is Mrs. Pamela McDougle, who is the person who trains many of the doctors who offer this throughout the nation and the world. Her phone number is (208) 424-7600.
NOTE: Be sure any cancer practitioner includes the sauna therapy with the program, as some omit this critical and very beneficial method.
Protocel. If the Kelley program is too expensive, we are investigating a natural remedy called Protocel. It is much cheaper at about $75.00 per month and quite non-toxic in our experience. However, beware that it is only a remedy and should be combined with the sauna, coffee enemas and other healing procedures such as diet and rest for the best results. Protocel is available by mail and is easy to find on the internet.
Patients Who Choose Conventional Cancer Therapy. If a client is undergoing conventional cancer therapy, then you may use the nutritional balancing program to provide excellent nutritional support for the person. I strongly recommend including the near infrared sauna therapy and coffee enemas would be excellent as well.
If One Has Had Cancer. If a person who wishes to be on a nutritional balancing program has had cancer in the past, the same suggestions occur as with those in the section above. The reason is there could still be some hidden cancer cells present.
Therefore, I strongly recommend insisting one add the coffee enemas, infrared sauna therapy and perhaps ven some pancreatic enzymes in larger amounts for a while. Other important supplements are vitamin D, selenium and iodine, as these are often deficient and help many people. Anyone who has or has had cancer often needs lots of rest.

Diabetes is also a chronic illness that usually takes years to develop. Just lowering the blood sugar does not cure the entire problem. However, it is an excellent start to prevent the terrible damage that excessive sugar in the blood can cause.
Clients with this problem may have difficulty eliminating sweets from the diet. This is a personality trait of many diabetics, who are used to eating sweets or other stimulants to get an energy boost. Nutritional balancing requires plenty of discipline, which many of them do not want to learn.
If they want to go on a program with you, they need extra zinc or Endo-pan, about 88 mg of zinc daily. Also needed is about 500-1000 mcg of extra chromium daily as well. These elements are critical for pancreatic function and blood sugar regulation.
They also will fare best on a stricter diet with even fewer sugars and no refined starches at all to obtain the best results. They are often told that they may have some fruit juice and even sweets, if it is not too much. This is not helpful in the least. Strict avoidance of simple carbohydrates is best in the long run.
They also need much more rest and sleep, more than others. This is, in fact, true of all chronic diseases.
With diabetes and other chronic illnesses, other programs such as raw food and perhaps vegetarian diets can get faster results in many cases. However, the clients may subtlely become extremely deficient in some nutrients such as zinc on these regimens. Zinc is found primarily in meats. Their bodies also become extremely expanded or yin in Chinese terminology, as well. This is why we donÕt recommend vegetarian or raw food diets.
This condition can respond extremely well in all cases, in our experience. Surgery or radioactive iodine treatment should never be needed. Anti-thyroid drugs may be needed in severe cases for a few months or even longer in a few cases, until the deeper causes, such as stress and toxic metal poisoning, can be eliminated.
One must not take any stimulating supplements for this condition. This includes Megapan, Endo-dren, Thyro-complex and perhaps kelp, though not always. Sauna therapy is fabulous for this condition, as it is relaxing and healing.
OLD AGE AND EXTREME INFIRMITY
Older and very debilitated individuals need extra GB-3 or other digestive aids, much more than younger, hardier people. The old or infirm often have seriously impaired enzyme production and cannot absorb nutrients well without a lot of help from digestive aids.
GB-3, our favorite digestive aid for most people, combines a liver detoxifier, a fat-soluble vitamin absorber, an intestinal infection killer, a cancer preventive and more into one digestive aid. The client does not have to take all these separately to receive many benefits.
The main problem that GB-3 can cause in a few people is diarrhea if one starts out with too much. Over a period of months, most people can increase slowly to three per meal. This is ideal for most older people.
Older people can do very well on the program. Their vitality level varies greatly, as may their ability to follow the diet and take the supplements regularly. They can do well with sauna therapy and coffee enemas as well. those that are very debilitated may do better on fewer supplements, at least initially, because too many may confuse the body in some way. Remember that
cooked food is much easier to digest. Also, they need a nap every day and plenty of rest at night.
ACUTE OR SEVERE INFECTIONS
Nutritional balancing science is superb for enhancing the immune system. However, an acute infection, especially if life-threatening, may need specific therapy for the infecting germs or parasites.
In cases of very serious acute infections, we like to target the infection only until it is under good control. This is a rare situation, however. For example, if the infections if a chronic type like Lyme disease or intestinal candida, or Epstein-Barr virus or cytomegalovirus or herpes, then the nutritional balancing program may be started at once.
The only exception is if the infection is overwhelming the person and this is quite rare. Only in these cases would one want to begin with just a targeted therapy such as colloidal silver and vitamins A and C for bacterial and viral infections and perhaps a therapy such as caprylic acid or acidophilus for a severe candida infection. Coffee enemas are excellent for all acute fevers and can help lower fever.
Prescription medication should never be used first in our experience. However, as a last resort it can be lifesaving. For more on acute infections, read Boosting Your Immune Response on this website.
Once a fulminating or extreme infection is at least under control, then a nutritional balancing program can help assure that infection does not recur and that the body becomes stronger and more balanced in general.
Most addictions greatly deplete nutrients or affect the diet and body chemistry quite adversely. In these instances, a nutritional balancing program can often help reduce cravings, improve mental and physical functioning, and often help prevent relapses.
For the best results, however, I prefer that addiction clients follow a complete care program. This would include not only nutritional balancing, but also counseling, biofeedback, meditation or other modalities to help overcome a difficult situation.
Often, a complete change of life is best for those with serious addictions. This is most helpful so the person can focus better and really dedicate oneself to removing all toxic substances from the body and making a new start in life, no matter oneÕs age or situation.
