have studied many nutritional approaches to healing. While all have some merit, I continue to use and recommend
the development method for the following reasons:
our experience, development is much safer than either most conventional medical
therapies or most holistic, natural, or naturopathic modalities and
therapies. The reasons for this
a) The Products Are
Safer. These include
selected vitamins, minerals, amino acids, digestive aids and few others. We do NOT recommend bio-identical
hormones of any kind, chelation therapy of any type, drugs of any kind except
in rare cases, and we are extremely careful about possible problems with most
For example, we find that all Chinese and
Ayurvedic or East Indian herbal products, no matter how good the quality,
contain too many toxic metals. The
same is true of many American and European herbs, regardless of the brand or
b) Balancing The
Body Is Safer Than Using Symptomatic Remedies. Development is far safer than most
other approaches. Balance is a key
to our health.
Balancing the oxidation rate and the major
mineral ratios, along with balancing yin and yang forces in the body, seems to
prevent many problems that arise with all kinds of healing methods, both
medical and holistic or natural ones.
For more details, read The Balance
c) Toxic Metals Are
Not Forced Out Of The Body With Chelators.
This may seem odd to say.
However, most chelation products, including oral, intravenous or rectal
suppositories, force the metals out of storage sites in an order that is not
the body’s natural sequence or order.
This is just one problem with chelation therapy.
works at the body’s pace, which may not satisfy some clients, but is much safer
in our experience. Development
also avoids the use of all chelators for other reasons.
The main reason is that they all, even the
natural ones, remove some vital or essential minerals along with the toxic
ones. This can be disastrous in a
few cases, so we avoid it and we don’t need it. For much more detail, read Chelation
d) Nutrients Are Not
Forced Into The body using intravenous or intramuscular nutrient therapy. Oral feeding of vitamins, minerals and
other substances may be slower, but it is gentler and usually works excellently
without the need for IV or IM therapy.
e) Megadoses Of
Vitamins Or Other Substances Are Not Used.
Many systems of healing use larger doses of nutrients, herbs and other
products. Lower doses tend to be
An exception is that when a four lows pattern is present on a hair mineral
analysis, higher doses of calcium, magnesium, zinc and taurine seem to be
absolutely needed to reverse this condition.
f) The Development
Method Can Reduce Toxic Levels Far Below That Possible With Other Healing
Methods, Including Intravenous And Oral Chelation. This occurs because we use over 20
methods to help remove toxic metals and toxic chemicals in an integrated
fashion. We do not need cilantro
or chlorella extracts, zeolite, herbs, clay baths and other methods. For details, read Toxic Metals. Reducing the levels of toxic metals
very low is extremely helpful for health and safer, as well.
g) Monitoring With
Repeated Hair Tissue Mineral Analyses Adds A Great Measure Of Safety. When performed and interpreted
correctly, this test can alert the practitioner to 1) a change in the oxidation
rate, 2) a toxic elimination in progress, 3) a change in the stress level that
needs attention, 4) anticipate toxic eliminations and other changes, and 5)
comparison testing helps assure compliance and understanding by the client of
the process that is involved.
or tendencies for 60 or more conditions can also be monitored easily,
inexpensively and usually without the need for other costly and perhaps
invasive tests or procedures.
Without such a tool, monitoring is far more difficult and the
possibility of harm is greater.

h) No toxic herbs or
other drugs are needed. Medical drugs are not used in development science, as a general
rule, although there are some exceptions.
For example, anti-hypertensive medication may be needed for a while
until body chemistry has been restored and strengthened. For more on the problems with
prescription and over-the-counter drugs, read Drug
Most people do not realize that many herbs are
also somewhat toxic, especially Chinese and Ayurvedic herbs today, and they can
cause liver toxicity. Most herbs
are also very yin in macrobiotic terminology. Very few herbs are needed with development science. For a list of safer herbs, see Herbs.
i) No bio-identical
or other hormone therapies are used or needed. The only exceptions are if a gland has
been removed surgically or otherwise destroyed. Then hormone replacement may be needed.
find that most hormone replacement therapy is not safe, no matter what doctors
may claim. For more details, read Hormone Replacement Therapy.
respects the body more. Remedy methods,
which includes most healing methods, force the body to adapt or cope with a new
stressor – namely the remedy.
This can cause side effects, toxicity or rebound effects.
In contrast, development
mainly uses foods and nutrients to bring the body to balance and raise its
adaptive energy or vitality level.
As one does this, healing occurs by itself. This is much safer than healing with remedies.
prefer development because it is highly predictive and preventive. Every healing method should include prevention
and the ability to predict future problems. Development is excellent for both of these.
example, one can often disease-causing toxic metals, infections and other
imbalances using a hair mineral test. This can be done early, while the pathologies are often still
hidden from standard diagnostic tests.
Prevention of most serious health
conditions. Many screening
tests and other methods can detect a few serious conditions such as diabetes,
heart disease or cancer. A
properly interpreted hair mineral test is an excellent screening test for
dozens of important health conditions.
Correction of latent or sub-clinical
conditions. This is the
ability of a development program to actually heal health conditions that have
not yet caused obvious measurable signs or symptoms. This is a type of prevention that is subtle, and most
A TRULY HOLISTIC
While many healers
claim their method is holistic, few, in fact, are truly so. This is because a holistic system must
incorporate lifestyle, nutrition, structural correction, colon cleansing, the
body/mind connection, mental healing and more advanced spiritual healing These are all components of the development
programs we set up.
By comparison, medical therapies and almost all
holistic, alternative, complimentary and naturopathic therapy, are not nearly as
MENTAL AND EMOTIONAL
reason we are impressed with the development method is its application in cases
of mental and emotional health conditions. This is an enormous area of concern today.
Many other therapies deal with it poorly, if at
all. It includes, but is not
limited to, developmental difficulties in children, depression, ADHD, autism,
schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, panic attacks, brain fog, memory loss,
cognitive impairment, and other common health conditions.
and many holistic approaches to mental illness and developmental delays are too
often quite symptomatic and do not address the removal of toxic metals and
toxic chemicals, for example.
Suppressing the problems with drugs can be disastrous. Development directly addresses causes
of mental illness. These include,
but are not limited to an unbalanced oxidation rate, nutritional deficiencies,
blood sugar imbalances and excessive toxic metals and chemicals present in the
nervous system and brain.
benefit of development is that correcting the nutritional imbalances will often
assist the client develop his personality, improve school and work performance
and much more. In other words, the
development method not only heals problems, but often drastically improves
mental functioning. This affects
every area of life.
BRIDGING EASTERN AND
WESTERN METHODS, AND ANCIENT AND THE MOST MODERN HEALING WISDOM
this may seem unusual to There is much wisdom in ancient therapies such as
acupuncture, acupressure, shiatsu, and others. However, integrating them with Western medical sciences and
“updating them” to deal with modern mankind’s particular issues today is often difficult.
modern development method is a blend of Western scientific methods and ancient
wisdom, such as balancing the body, assessing yin and yang, metabolic typing,
the concept of vital force or energetic balancing, the concept of retracing,
this way, development using hair mineral analysis is a bridge between the most
modern biochemical theories of health and disease such as the stress theory and
modern physiology, with ancient wisdom applied to the human and animal body,
mind and spirit.
THE ABILITY TO
CORRECT SUB-OXIDATION OR THE FOUR LOWS PATTERN
healing methods have their strong points and those it is not equipped to
handle. A particular strong point
of the development programs we offer is its ability to identify and correct a
difficult condition we call the four-lows pattern.
with a lot of experience know that there is a group of patients for whom
progress in healing is most difficult.
They do not respond as do the others.
main symptoms are often fatigue and allergies. The person often has a negative view about life. With development science, one can
recognize the pattern instantly and take corrective action that saves many
Dr. Paul Eck realized this and developed not
only a way to identify these people using hair analysis. He also developed a protocol to
counteract the pattern that works most of the time. Sadly, programs offered by his laboratory no longer offers
this, but we do.
is a very precise and amazing genetic change in the body that heals the body
and prolongs life. A major goal of
the development program, and the reason it is called the development method, is
to facilitate this process.
It involves an increase in brain capacity,
improvement in the immune response, and opening of the seven major Energy Centers of the physical body.
was not as true of Dr. Eck’s nutritional programs. However, we have added a stricter diet, a few new
nutritional supplements and the use of near infrared sauna therapy, coffee
enemas and the Pulling Down Exercise.
The ability to develop may be considered the
crowning achievement of development science that is not offered by most other
healing methods today.
can allow modern sickly people to “catch up”, so to speak, with the ancient and
aboriginal people whose bodies were in far better condition due to better food,
less ionizing radiation and much less toxic metals, toxic chemicals and
programs that we offer are continually updated and improved. This is important because conditions in
the world are changing. Only
through continual research can the new challenges of the twenty-first century
be addressed in the best way possible.
A CHANNEL THERAPY
bodies have a set of energy channels that run vertically from head to
feet. The acupuncture meridians
include some of them.
Opening these channels and keeping them open
allows much more subtle energy or chi to flow through the body, encouraging and
allowing deep healing. Development
is one of the few methods specifically aimed at opening the body’s energy
systems of healing, including Western allopathic medicine, limit the modalities
used or permitted. This is not the
case with the development method, which uses diet, lifestyle, supplements and
herbs, hydrotherapy, mental exercises, structural work and much more.
We wish these methods were not all needed, but
with modern health problems, they are needed in many cases.
important as being inclusive, development is extremely careful and discerning
about which modalities to use, when to use them, and how to use them in an integrated
fashion to produce health.
Some doctors mix and match healing modalities in
such a way that they negate some of their benefits. With the development method, we are careful to make sure
that only therapies that blend well are used together, and used properly.
RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN MEN AND WOMEN
include this because we teach some unusual empathic
healing methods. This means
methods that involve another person.
They include Down Hugging and Down Sex.
These are powerful and enjoyable healing methods.
A section of this website is devoted to learning
about loving relationships because they carry a lot of healing power.
POLARITY OF THE BODY
critical component of all development programs is to move energy downward from
the head to the feet. Methods used
to do this include the diet, the supplement program, the lifestyle, coffee
enemas and most of all, the pushing down mental exercise.
concept of a polarized body with the head more positive and the feet more
negative is quite powerful for healing, and this is emphasized in development
1. Reasonable cost. This applies to both mineral testing
and the cost of the program such as the diet, supplements, lifestyle changes
and other procedures. Cost is an
important practical reason to prefer this method of healing over some others.
Sampling, handling, and transporting the hair biopsy samples is easy, safe, and
Assessment with the hair mineral biopsy is mathematically precise, objective
and easily repeatable. This may not seem important, but is a primary benefit of this
approach. Many medical and holistic
methods are quite vague, subjective or imprecise. Development
assessment leaves little room for doubts, as it measures minerals to extreme
degrees of accuracy in parts per billion.
One can then calculate the levels, ratios and patterns with great
precision. Even many blood, urine,
hormone and other standard medical assays are far less accurate, in spite of
what is sometimes said about hair mineral testing.
A rather amazing graphic display of test results that enables one to see dozens
of mineral patterns. This is a very unusual and excellent benefit of development.
A stand-alone system. By this we mean that the development method does not require a lot
of confirmatory medical or nutritional tests, or procedures such as x-rays,
blood tests, urine tests, physical exams or others.
This is an excellent practical advantage to save
time and money that the author found hard to believe when he began using the development
method. However, it is true.
contrast, many medical and holistic therapies require many different types of
testing to confirm and rule out various conditions or diseases.
Some years ago, I visited a well-known holistic
physician. Before I even saw the
doctor, I was told to obtain over $1000.00 of blood and other tests.
this is a reason I believe hair analysis and development are not more
accepted. The idea that a single,
inexpensive test can guide the correction of health is unusual.
When a doctor criticizes our method, I answer by
saying that the difference is the hair analysis is being used to assess the stress response, not to confirm or rule
out various diseases. As
correction of the stress response proceeds, symptoms go away on their own.
This is a completely different system of healing
than the diagnose-and-treat model used by medical doctors and by most
naturopaths and other holistic practitioners as well.
may seem a bit complex, but it is at the heart of the difference between the development
method and the more conventional diagnose-and-treat approach to health care.
curious way that development is sufficient unto itself is it does not require a
physical examination most of the time.
At first, this was also strange to me, having been trained medically.
While we support the idea of doing a careful
history and physical examination, I find myself telling most clients that a
physical exam is usually not needed, especially if it means a lot of travel and
reason for this is that physical examinations do not reveal the deepest
information about the client’s present stress response. Therefore, while the information
gleaned may be vital, such as one’s blood pressure, for example, most of it is
not deep enough to begin correction, and the hair analysis will provide what is
6. The ease of monitoring progress, in most
cases, with retests. Monitoring
progress is essential for any healing program because symptom relief can be
very deceptive. One may feel
better, but really one’s health is getting worse.
In other instances, one may feel worse. However, healing is taking place at
deep levels and the symptom changes are not a good indicator.
