The Theory Behind Development Programs

Brief History Of Development Programs






Definition. The development program is the healing method we recommend to cause the body to develop in the fastest and safest way.  It consists of a healthful lifestyle, a specific diet, taking about 8 to 10 nutritional supplements, and 6 or more healing and detoxification procedures.

One can do as much of the program as one wishes, but good results depend on doing as much as possible.


Is it for you?  This program requires:

- Eating a lot of cooked vegetables – not salads, not smoothies or powders, not food bars, and not fruit or sweets.  If you won’t eat this type of diet, the program is not for you.

- Some discipline.  This is new for some people.  You will develop the discipline if you work with the program.

- Following orders.  The program took 50 years to develop.   Trying to figure it all out yourself rarely works.  Combining it with other programs almost always negates its benefits.

- Flare-ups.  The program will bring up and release old traumas and illnesses.  It is quite amazing.  This sometimes causes vigorous symptoms that can be annoying or unpleasant.  We will help you through them. 

The most important requirement for releasing traumas is forgiveness of everyone for everything.  If you are not ready to forgive, this program is not for you.  To understand forgiveness, a religious concept, read Forgiveness.




Development is the expansion of the body’s energy field and it is the expression of the full genetic potential of a human being.  It causes much better health, a longer lifespan, improved thinking and the arising of special abilities such as mental telepathy.

Development is natural to human beings and is mentioned in ancient books such as the Bible.  However, it is not taught much today and does not often occur because all the bodies are too malnourished and too toxic.  This includes those who “eat a good diet” and who “live a healthy lifestyle”.

To develop today requires a specific program, which is the subject of this article.  For more details, read Introduction To Development and other articles about development on this website.




For the best outcome, one needs to do the following:

The diet. The core of the program is the diet.  This is the only way we have found to obtain the nutrients needed for development.  Seventy percent of each meal needs to be specific cooked vegetables.  If you will not eat cooked vegetables three times daily, this program is not for you.  The reason is you will not make fast progress and you may quit out of frustration.

Some people want to skip the diet and just take nutritional supplements or do the procedures.  This is not safe.  We never recommend it.


Lifestyle.  Go to bed at 8 to 9 PM.  Development requires lots of rest and sleep.  Naps are also helpful.

Gentle exercise such as working or light weight-lifting is is good, but vigorous exercise and ‘working out’ slow or stop development.

Sex with orgasm wastes sexual fluid, which slows development.  The less, the better.  Regular sex more than once a week usually wrecks the program.  Much better is Down Sex, which you can do daily if you wish.  In fact, it is a powerful healing procedure.  For lifestyle details, read Healthy Lifestyle.


Nutritional supplements.  Development programs include about eight or nine very specific nutritional supplements.  Babies require only about three supplements, in most cases.

The products usually include a product for one’s metabolic type.  They also include supplementary omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D.  The also include, calcium, magnesium, zinc, selenium and possibly other minerals, a digestive aid, kelp and trimethylglycine.  They may also contain a glandular supplement.

Other nutritional products, homeopathy, herbs, intravenous vitamins, chelation and most other natural therapies get in the way of development.  Homeopathy is particularly harmful.  You can take medical drugs, if absolutely required.  Quality chiropractic care, or osteopathic manipulative care, are compatible with a development program and we recommend them.

If a person cannot take the supplements at first, it is fine to begin a program with just the diet.  In most cases, within a few weeks to a month or so, the intestinal tract will heal so that you can tolerate the supplements.


The detoxification procedures. The development program also includes detoxification and healing procedures that greatly speed up development.  You don’t need to begin with all of them, but they, and only these procedures, work exceedingly well and many people require them for good results.  They are:

- Daily use of a red heat lamp or a red heat lamp sauna – the frequencies of this simple bulb are a missing nutrient.

- Daily coffee enemas for liver detoxification.

- The Pulling Down Exercise.  This simple mental exercise is required for rapid development.

- Foot and Hand Reflexology.  This is a very powerful and very simple way to balance and heal the body.

- The Neck Pull – Another simple procedure that moves energy correctly through the body.

- Spinal Twists.  This is instead of quality chiropractice care, which can be difficult or expensive.

- A few other procedures are discussed in the Accelerators article.

Other detoxification procedures such as chelation therapy we find harmful.




Results. When one follows a development program, healing takes place at its own pace, and in its own order.  This is quite different than remedy sciences such as drug medicine, herbs, homeopathy and most naturopathy.  Results often begin within a few days or weeks, but may take longer if hidden conditions need to be corrected first.


Retracing.  On a development program, everyone goes through flare-ups of old symptoms.  These are sometimes annoying, but are generally benign and pass quickly.  This process is called retracing.

We wish retracing did not occur, but it is part of the process of deep healing and occurs with all deep healing programs.  It does not occur when one uses drugs, herbs, and most holistic and naturopathic methods.  The reason is these are remedy methods that do not heal the body as deeply.  For details, read Retracing.




The basic or free program.  We offer two programs.  Anyone can begin the free program at no charge.  It is intended as a starter program, but many people report significant health benefits from it.  To begin this “free development program”, click here.

The full program.  A much more powerful program involves contacting one of the Approved Helpers listed on this website, who will assist you to begin a complete and individualized program.  It is better because it is individualized and because you will be assisted by our development team.  It is usually required if you are unwell. 

Cost.  Most of the practitioners charge $150 to $250.00 US dollars for the hair mineral test and a long consultation or two to set up the program properly.  This fee usually also includes responding to questions that arise during the program. 

The other major cost is the nutritional supplements, which often cost about $160.00 to $200.00 US dollars monthly for adults and less for children.  One can reduce the cost to about $120.00 US dollars per monthly by taking the supplements twice, instead of three times daily.  Results may be slower.  If you are interested in starting a complete, and individualized development program, click here.


Hair mineral testing.  The full program requires a hair tissue mineral test.  This is a mineral biopsy.  So far, blood, urine, saliva other tests cannot be used instead.

Controversy over mineral testing.  The hair test is controversial has been around for 80 years.  It is controversial only because of an effort to discredit it.  If widely used, it would reveal how deficient and toxic the bodies are today.

The hair must not be washed at the laboratory at all for accurate results.  During the program, one repeats the hair test every 4 to 6 months to monitor progress, and to update the diet and supplement program to keep the body chemistry properly balanced as it heals.  For more details, read Introduction To Hair Mineral Analysis.


Commitment.  Development programs involve some self-discipline and commitment of time and energy to learn and follow the diet, take the supplements, and to do the procedures. 


Babies and children.  They do extremely well.  Babies can begin at about four months of age, while breastfeeding.  The program improves the brain greatly, and prevents and heals many conditions of childhood.  Children who follow the program are usually end up about three grade levels ahead of their peers.

Development programs usually get rid of autism, attention deficit disorder, and many other conditions of children without requiring expensive testing or a lot of products. 






Development is more than a program.  It is a path.  This means that to move along most rapidly and easily, one needs to integrate the program as much as possible into one’s entire lifestyle.  For details, read The Healing Path.




A development program may appear similar to other nutrition programs.  However, it differs markedly from holistic health care and naturopathy in the following ways:

Development programs do not involve the diagnosis and treatment of diseases.  This is quite unusual, although it parallels the therapeutic method used in some ancient sciences such as acupuncture.

Instead of diagnoses, development science relies upon normalization and correction of the diet, lifestyle and nutritional status of the person.  In addition, the detoxification and development procedures help heal and develop the body in a variety of ways.

Development programs do not focus on symptom removal.  Instead, they use various methods to remineralize and balance the body.  When this is done properly, symptoms go away on their own.  This was quite remarkable to us when we began teaching this program 40 years ago.

Development programs rarely involve the use of remedies.  This is a major difference between this program and others.  Remedies are rarely needed if one rebalances and renourishes the body properly.




Development programs are based upon the stress theory of disease and systems theory.  Both of these are 20th century concepts regarding how complex, regenerating systems operate. 

From this perspective, most disease is simply evidence of a system out of balance.  When the whole body system becomes remineralized, balanced and strengthened at deep levels, most “disease entities” disappear on their own without a need to know all about them, without a need to name them, and without needing to take remedies for them.

Development is also based on ancient teachings that assert that human beings have the genetic capacity to enjoy far greater health and longevity than they presently enjoy.




The concept of development has been known on earth for thousands of years.  However, it is not taught much in modern societies.  The Bible makes reference to it when it discusses people who lived a long time, those who had special abilities, and in Ezekiel Chapter 1 (the vision of Ezekiel).

The development programs we offer trace their origin to a number of scientific breakthroughs that occurred during the twentieth century.  For more details, read The Development Science Pioneers.

Dr. Paul C. Eck synthesized a lot of this 20th century science and designed the first ‘mineral balancing’ programs beginning around 1975.  He was not aware of development, however.

The author was fortunate to work closely with him for 14 years.  Starting in 2003, he introduced a number of changes to the mineral balancing program including:

- A different Diet.

- More emphasis on Lifestyle.

- Discovery of new hair analysis patterns.

- Supplement program changes, including the addition of kelp, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin D, trimethylglycine and most recently, lecithin for some people.

- Addition of the Detoxification Procedures.

We continue to research development and how to promote it in the safest, most convenient and most cost-effective way.
