All information in this article is for educational purposes only.  It is not for the diagnosis, treatment, prescription or cure of any disease or health condition.




This article contrasts two approaches or paradigms of health care.  A paradigm is an overall or world view.  The two paradigms are:


1. The diagnose-and-treat diseases paradigm.  This is the prevailing medical and holistic approach to health and disease.

2. The paradigm of development.


The purpose of this article is not to criticize one or the other approach.  The goal is understand how very different they are, so that you can make up your mind which method you prefer.




Premises of the diagnose-and-treat paradigm.  These are:

1. When one becomes ill, one becomes possessed, victimized or attacked by a disease entity. 

2. The task or need is to identify the disease entity, and then remove it or “cure” it. 

To cure means to remove or excise.  A related word is curettage, which means to scrape away bad tissue with a spoon-like instrument called a curet.

3. People are basically on the right path in life.  The task or need is only to remove certain blocks, called diseases, that get in one’s way.

4. If one is ill, one cannot heal oneself (or presumably one would have done so already). 

The exception to this presumption is what medical personnel call self-limiting diseases.  These are health conditions such as the common cold that will go away by themselves.

However, for most health conditions, the assumption is that the body cannot heal the condition by itself and that one needs a remedy in order to heal.

Diagnosing, prescribing, treating and curing is the method used by medical, homeopathic, naturopathic and most holistic healers.  In the laws of the United States at this time, the above italicized words are only allowed to be used by licensed personnel.  We believe this is unconstitutional, but that is the law at this time.


Premises of the development paradigm.  These are:

1. The body will maintain itself and will heal itself of most all health conditions if it is given the correct food, lifestyle, healing procedures and other aspects of the proper path in life.

The only exceptions are situations such as broken bones that require help to set the bone correctly and protect the area so that the bone can heal properly.

2. If one does not feel well, it is because one is either:

- not on the right path in life.

- on the correct path, but one is not far enough along the path to allow the body to heal a particular condition. 

- somewhat on the right path, but one needs to make corrections to the lifestyle, diet or some other aspect of the path in order to fully heal the body.

The task or need is to move oneself onto the special path of development and follow the path correctly.  When one does this, symptoms and “disease entities” go away on their own and one’s health remains excellent.

3. The special path of development includes activation of certain genes that normally are not activated today.  This is a critical aspect of the development method and required for optimum health.

4. The development paradigm requires the use of a tissue mineral test that must be performed and interpreted correctly.  This test is not routinely performed within the diagnose-and-treat paradigm of health care.

5. A group of beings called the rogues on this website interfere with human health, at times in powerful ways.  This problem must be dealt with through interventions, at times, by other beings who understand the rogues and know how to stop their interference.






In medical care, to make a diagnosis requires specific procedures or tests.  This is very important to know.  If one does not do the correct test, technically speaking one has not made a diagnosis, even if the words are spoken.

For example, to diagnose hypoglycemia requires a glucose tolerance test.  If one does a hair mineral analysis, one cannot diagnose hypoglycemia, even though one may find indicators on the mineral analysis of the same problem.




            This term also has specific meaning in the medical/holistic/naturopathic world. 

Definition of disease:  A definite morbid process having a characteristic train of symptoms; it may affect the whole body or any of its parts, and its etiology, pathology and prognosis may be known or unknown. (from Dorland’s Illustrated Medical Dictionary, 25th edition).

This means that one may not call just anything a disease.  Medical books contain the list of recognized diseases.  For example, mercury toxicity is not technically a disease.




This word also has a specific meaning in medical care.  Its definition, in some cases, is simply that one’s symptoms disappear.  However, in other cases, one is only “cured” only if certain blood tests return to normal, for example.




Diseases, diagnoses, treatments and cures are not of much interest in the development paradigm.

An exception is that for certain diagnoses, we find that the person benefits from certain modifications of the basic program or path.  For example, if one has a diagnosis of diabetes, taking larger amounts of zinc and chromium are helpful.  This is an aspect of the diagnose-and-treat paradigm that is used in the development method.

Also, the path and program is the same if one has a serious illness, or if one has no health complaints whatsoever.

For medically trained persons, this way of doing things is very strange, so ingrained is the idea of diagnosing and treating diseases.  This stops many from looking into development further, or trying it themselves.




This paradigm is excellent for some problems such as breaking a leg and dealing with serious accidents.  It also has a low up-front cost because one can eat and live as one pleases.  It also less effort or discipline compared to the development paradigm.




            Improper diagnosis.  This is a common problem in the diagnose-and-treat paradigm.  It is a serious one because if the diagnosis is incorrect, the treatment is often also incorrect and the outcome is not good.

This occurs up to 50% of the time with some medical conditions.  Certain conditions, such as cancer, can mimic other conditions, or are simply difficult to identify.


            Not building health.  The diagnose-and-treat paradigm often does not buildup one’s health.  It is more of a removal process, not a building process.

Yet people need to build up their health today.  This is perhaps the worst problem with the diagnose-and-treat paradigm of healing.


            Symptom suppression, rather than deep healing.  The diagnose-and-treat paradigm often simply suppresses or compensates for symptoms, rather than removing their cause.

For example, a standard treatment for elevated blood pressure is to give a remedy that removes some fluid from the blood.  This lowers the blood pressure, but it does not remove the cause of the problem, which is usually the presence of excessive toxic metals in the kidneys.


            The use of toxic remedies and toxic and dangerous procedures.  The diagnose-and-treat paradigm requires these remedies and procedures.  These interfere with building up one’s health.  The result is that although one’s symptoms may disappear with the diagnose-and-treat methods, one is often left with a lower level of overall health due to the use of somewhat toxic remedies and/or procedures such as x-rays and surgery.


            No genetic activation.  The diagnose-and-treat paradigm does not activate certain genes that lead to a long life and excellent health.  As a result, one who uses this paradigm of healing is essentially robbed of his or her full human potential.




            This model of health care:

- is more preventive, which reduces cost and disability.

- does not just suppress symptoms. 

- does not involve the use of toxic remedies nearly as much as the other paradigm.

- heals at a much deeper level, removing deeper causes of ill health.

- is more effective for many health conditions especially chronic illnesses.

- is safer.

- in many cases, avoids the problem of mis-diagnosing or missing the proper health condition

- offers the possibility of a much higher levels of health and wellness than the diagnose-and-treat paradigm.




            If you want to develop quickly, this approach is more costly at first because one must buy good quality food.  However, one also saves money that most people spend on processed food, snack foods, and eating poor quality food at restaurants.

The development approach takes a little more discipline and effort, at least at first.  Once healthful living and healthful eating become a habit, they don’t usually require much extra effort.

Another disadvantage is that the development approach is unusual at this time.  Therefore, one cannot just read about it on thousands of website or just call a physician and ask about it.

Also, by itself, the development approach it is not sufficient for a few health conditions such as when one breaks a bone or has a serious accident.  In these instances, one needs to employ some of the methods of the diagnose-and-treat paradigm.
