is a core article that describes the basic health problems of our world. Two facts that are very poorly understood
by most people and by virtually all doctors are:
1. Everyone is nutritionally deficient.
2. All the bodies today are also quite
discusses this situation and what to do about it.
WHY IS EVERYONE NUTRITIONALLY DEPLETED?
answer is a combination of factors:
Congenital deficiencies. The word congenital means present at birth, but
not genetically inherited. Today,
most everyone is born nutritionally depleted due to nutritional depletion of
their mothers. This is a
congenital factor that affects basically everyone in the Western world.
We find that if a woman follows a
development program she will bear “super children”. This just means children who are less nutritionally deficient
at birth, and less toxic, as well.
2. The green
revolution. Our food is not nearly as nutritious today as it
was 100 years ago. About 80 years
ago, a new method of agriculture began.
New fertilizers called superphosphates were developed that stimulated
plant growth. This made possible large increases in the amount of food that
would grow on an acre of land.
Farmers could suddenly grow up to 10 times as much food per acre.
The only trouble was that the soil did not have enough nutrients to
make the new crops as nutritious.
As a result, the nutritional content of the food grown with
superphosphates is much less than that of the crops grown the old way –
up to 90% less.
Another problem that arose was that the new plants were not as
healthy, so they were attacked by insects and other pests much more. This was solved by developing highly
toxic pesticides on the crops, and by developing new strains of crops that are
not nearly as nutritious, but yield a lot of food, resist the pests a little
better, and tolerate the pesticides a little better.
Taken together, this was called the Green Revolution. It was hailed as a great scientific
achievement. In reality, however,
it has caused a drastic reduction in the nutrient content of our food. It has also directly caused much more
disease – among our crops, our livestock and human populations. The sicknesses are due to malnutrition
and to ingesting the toxic chemicals used in agriculture.
Today superphosphate fertilizers are used on all crops, even organically
grown food. Few farmers want to go
back to the old way of growing food because it does not produce as much food
per acre, which means they would earn less money.
The decline in nutrition has been amply documented by comparing the US
Department Of Agriculture tables of the nutrient content of food from around
1900 to the present.
A number of books discuss the subject, such as Empty Harvest, Understanding The Link Between Our
Food, Our Immunity and Our Planet by Bernard Jensen and Mark Anderson,
Avery books, 1990 and 1995. An
earlier book with the same theme is Food For Naught, The Decline In Nutrition by Ross Hume Hall,
Vintage Books, 1976.
More recent studies documenting the sharp decline in the nutrient
content of our food over the past 50 years are:

Riordan. 2004. Changes in USDA food composition data for 43 garden crops, 1950
to 1999. Journal of the American College of Nutrition 23(6):669–682.

siege. One Peaceful World Journal, Spring:1, 7–8.

- Mayer, A. M. 1997. Historical
changes in the mineral content of fruits and vegetables. British Food Journal
99(6):207–211. For more details, read Organic Agriculture.
3. Modern food processing. While not all food processing is bad, it often
reduces the vitamin and mineral content of our already nutritionally-depleted
food by at least 50% or more.
The worst offenders include the refining of flour that turns whole
wheat flour into bleached white flour, refining of sugar cane into refined
white sugar, and the refining of rice to form white rice.
Another insult, sadly, is the common practice of freezing foods. This bursts the cell walls of the food
and damages its nutrition. This is
not widely known. Some frozen food
has EDTA added to retain the color of the food. Unfortunately, EDTA is a chelator that binds and removes
some of the minerals in the already low-mineral food we have.
Canning food is not ideal.
However, we observe that canned sardines are still an excellent food and
that so-called “fresh” fish are often not that fresh. Canned vegetables are not as good as fresh ones, but they
often have more nutrition than frozen ones.
Another serious insult to our food is the practice of irradiating
certain foods to kill germs. Most
almonds, for example, are irradiated, as are many herbs.
Other insults to the food are the addition of several thousand toxic
chemicals to the food that irritate the intestinal tract and can have other
harmful effects on anyone who eats the food. These irritate the digestive tract and have many other toxic
problems. We find that most everyone has weakened digestion
and impaired absorption of nutrients due to a combination of the following:
- Congenital nutrient deficiencies and metal and chemical
- Traumas of all kinds – physical, emotional and mental.
- Malnutrition from eating poor quality food for years.
- Toxicity from contaminated air, water, and food. Toxicity can also arise from contact
with dental materials or hundreds of other products that come in contact with
- Toxicity related to the medical industry, such as vaccine poisons,
toxic medical drugs, and radiation exposure from x-rays, CT scans, dyes and
- Toxicity from the use of natural products such as herbs, homeopathic
remedies, and other ‘natural’ products.
- Stress due to faulty living habits or for other reasons.
- Bad eating habits such as eating on the run, eating in the car,
eating poor food combinations, and more.
- Improper diets that are very hard on digestion. Problem items include raw foods, most of which are very difficult to digest. Other problems are eating whole nuts and seeds, drinking smoothies that are terrible food combinations, drinking liquids with meals, and taking a lot of nutritional supplements that also often upset digestion.For more details, read Health Foods That Are Not Healthy.
- Ingesting food chemicals that damage the body.
- Infections in the intestines, liver, pancreas and other organs
concerned with digestion and absorption of nutrients.
- Other illnesses that reduce digestive energy. These are many, but among the most
common are diabetes, cancers, and incorrect intestinal flora. Many times these are not diagnosed
until they are quite advanced.
After 40 years of experience working with clients, we believe that
today, no one escapes these problems.
This is the human nutrition situation on earth today.
TO CORRECT TODAY’S NUTRITIONAL DEPLETION
our experience, there is only one way to correct today’s nutritional depletion
and it is not easy. We wish this
were not so. It requires:
- A special diet.
- A healthful lifestyle.
- A few specific nutritional supplements.
- Most people also need five or six daily healing and development
- One must also avoid most other foods, most food supplements, and many
commonly-used healing therapies and procedures. For details, read The
Basic or ‘Free’ Development Program.
WHY IS EVERYONE TOXIC?
1. Congenital toxicity. Most all babies are born quite toxic
because their mothers are toxic.
This is very apparent when one reviews hair mineral tests from babies
and their mothers. For more
details, read Pre-Natal Care on this
2. Nutritional depletion. In accordance with the concept of
preferred minerals, if one’s body is deficient in vital minerals, it will pick
up toxic minerals from the environment and it can use them to some degree in
some enzyme systems.
3. Contamination of the air, water,
food and products we touch.
WHAT ARE THESE TOXINS?
classes of toxins include:
1. About two dozen toxic metals. These include the common ones such as
mercury, lead, arsenic, aluminum, nickel, cadmium, antimony, bismuth, uranium, and
others. It also includes toxic
forms of vital or physiological minerals such as iron, copper, manganese,
cobalt, boron, strontium, molybdenum, lithium, chromium, and selenium. These elements in the wrong form are
very irritating and toxic. On this
website and in my books, I call the latter The
metals, and toxic forms of physiological minerals, are the worst type of
toxins, in our 40 years of experience.
Removing them deeply requires the development program described on this
website, and not other. It takes a
number of years, but is well worth the effort. Chelation therapy is not adequate for this purpose and is
not nearly as safe.

Therapy. Also, urine challenge
tests, hair tests, blood tests, stool tests and others cannot detect most toxic
metals because they are hidden deep in the brain, the liver and elsewhere. As a result, one cannot depend upon
these tests to tell how many or how much toxic metals are in the body.
everyone has some toxic metals because that is our experience. We use the hair test mainly to guide
program design, and not mainly to detect toxic metals.
2. Toxic chemicals. There are thousands of these in the
water, air and food supplies today.
They range from pesticides and insecticides (which are among the worst)
to solvents, food additives, packaging materials, industrial effluent from
factories, car exhaust, building materials, and more. For more on this topic, read Chemical
Toxicity on this website.
3. Biological toxins. These are infective organisms such as
bacteria, viruses, parasites, fungi, cancers, and perhaps others. The toxicity stems from not only the
activity of the organisms itself, but also many of them secrete toxins that are
called endotoxins and exotoxins.
important source of biological toxins is the use of any vaccines, booster shots
and flu shots. Not only do they
introduce the intended virus or germ into the body, but many are contaminated
with other viruses as well. In
addition, they contain chemical toxins and toxic metals in almost all cases.
overlooked and very important chemical toxicity consists of powerful toxins
generated in the intestines when one’s diet and/or digestion are improper or
weak. Some food ferments or rots,
generating very toxic substances such as indol, skatol, and cadaverine.
cause symptoms such as gas, bloating and other digestive upset. However, even if one has no symptoms,
they poison the body. This
important problem is called autointoxication. For details, read Auto-intoxication.
4. Mental and emotional toxins. These are not discussed often, but they
are real. They consist of negative
or harmful attitudes and emotions, and untrue and harmful beliefs and
perspectives. Among the articles
that discuss these are Healthy Attitudes
and The Real Self.
5. Electrical and electromagnetic
include emanations, frequencies, electrical and magnetic fields, and/or
vibrations of many kinds that are not compatible with human physiology. Sources include cell phones, cell phone
towers, computer screens, and, to a lesser degree, portable phones.
sources are turbine blades in aircraft, 220-volt wiring, occasionally 110-volt
wiring, and spark devices such as automobile ignition coils. Others include high-tension power
lines, transformers, some junction boxes, flickering lights such as fluorescent
lamps, and other devices.
include geopathic stress lines in the earth. These are a natural source of emanations, some of which are
healthful and others harmful. They
are everywhere and impossible to avoid completely. However, some people feel less comfortable in some
locations, and dowsers can often locate these spots or lines and help people
move their beds and other furniture to avoid them.

TOXINS CAUSE DISEASES OF ALL KINDS, INCLUDING
ALL MENTAL AND EMOTIONAL DISEASE
or traditional medical care almost completely ignores the problem of widespread
and epidemic toxicity of the bodies.
They do not realize the direct connection between it and the illnesses
of our times. If they did, they
would teach the people to clean up their homes, their offices, their diets, the
water they drink and bathe in, and every aspect of their lives.
THE TOXICS CHECKLIST
Here is a
list of some of the most common toxic products in our current society. See if you have any of them:
Home and garden: pesticides,
insecticides, solvents, bug spray, some paints, glues, etc.
Body care products: Nail
polish, hair spray, hair dye, soaps, shampoos, cleansers, lotions and creams,
perfumes and colognes, sunscreen, tattoos, body-piercings, nickel-coated rings
and other jewelry, deodorants and anti-perspirants, tampons, some spermicidal
gels, many over-the-counter remedies, some clothing due to synthetic materials
or detergent residues.
Medical drugs: Nearly all
of them are quite toxic and should only be used when absolutely necessary. Look for natural alternatives, which
exist for many medical drugs.
Hormones are among the most toxic, sadly, and the toxicity is subtle.
Holistic remedies: Chinese and
Ayurvedic herbs, other herbs, ALL homeopathic remedies, chelating substances,
natural bio-identical hormones, some vitamins and mineral products such as
fulvic acid, humic acid, folinic acid, beta glucan, and many others.
bridges, braces (nickel), amalgam fillings (mercury), root canal-filled teeth
(due to pesticides on the grass), swimming in pools and use of hot tubs (germs
not killed by chlorine), exposure to lead, solvents, paints, clays, gasoline
and more. Also, recreational drug
use such as marijuana, smoking anything, and alcohol use. Also, promiscuity or even just multiple
sexual partners, or kinky sexual habits that expose you to more germs.
Occupational exposure: poor
ventilation, chemical exposures from building materials such as carpeting and
formaldehyde in pressed wood products, and much more.
Air pollution: low oxygen,
cadmium from brake linings, manganese and other chemicals in gasoline, toxic
building materials that outgas, plastics and other materials in the home or at
Water and water pollution: Plastics in
RO water, chemicals added to drinking water by municipalities, minerals added
to water, alkaline water machines, chlorine, fluorides, copper, aluminum and
Food contamination: contamination of the food item itself,
which always is the case with fish and especially seafood, for example. Fruit is also often contaminated by NPK
fertilizer residues. I am assuming
the food is not spoiled or old and infected with viruses or other
organisms. Foods can also contain
pesticide residues, even from natural pesticides in organic food, residues from
containers or from processing of the food, occasionally.
commercial foods also may contain up to a hundred or more questionable food
additives, such as preservatives, colorings, flavorings, dough conditioners,
HOW TO REDUCE YOUR TOXIC EXPOSURE
1. Minimize all drug use. This includes medical drugs,
anesthesia, vaccines and flu shots and over-the-counter remedies. Also avoid recreational drugs or
alcohol, and even holistic or natural remedies such as herbs and random
2. Try to have clean air and water
where you live and work. Buy an
ozonator/ionizer air purifier for your home and work place. Read about it here.
3. Minimize the use of body care
products, and make sure the ones you are using are pure and natural.
4. Avoid hot tubs and swimming pools
completely. Swim only in a
clean ocean, or a clean lake or river.
5. Be monogamous sexually, and do not
experiment with various partners or practices that expose you to more germs. Wait for sex until marriage in most
sex is much safer and much more healing than ordinary sex.
6. At work, at home, and everywhere
else beware of toxic hazards and take steps to avoid them. Do not buy toxic products, or wear
gloves and masks if you must be around toxic substances. Use all-natural soaps, detergents,
cosmetics and body care products only.
7. Buy organically grown food whenever
possible. Avoid most processed and prepared
foods. Do not eat raw food in a
restaurant, even salads. Avoid all
fish and seafood such as shellfish, except 3-4 cans of sardines weekly. Avoid fruit completely, and fruit
8. Drink only natural spring water. The plastic
bottles are not a problem, in my experience. Do not drink RO water, alkaline water or unusual types of
designer or other drinking waters, for the most part. Most are not that good.
hope that conventional, holistic and natural practitioners will understand
today’s serious twin problems of nutritional depletion and toxicity. If they did, they would talk about diet
first before spending money on expensive tests and they would use very few
drugs and even herbs.
They would also
encourage proper nutritional supplementation to reverse this terrible
experience of more than 40 years, when this is done, most health conditions go
away on their own without a need for fancy, expensive tests, hormone
replacement, chelation, drugs or even surgery in most cases. This is how powerful proper nutrition
and releasing toxins can be.
to the above, when the body is properly nourished and toxins released
sufficiently, a natural healing process occurs that is called development
on this website. It is a most
remarkable genetic change in the body that builds health and extends life. For details, read Introduction To Development.
