Why do doctors just treat symptoms? Why don’t doctors CURE disease?
These are two questions that I had to ponder during my quest to heal myself of over 35 diagnosed diseases and 100 symptoms after doctors did NOTHING to CURE my disease. I asked doctors over and over again what was causing my diseases, but no doctor could give me a straight-shooting answer. All I heard was a definition of my problem, which came in the form of a diagnosis, and then I was told that some body part, age, or genetics was to blame for the action. But the more I thought about it, the more I realized that blaming some body part for failure was of NO consequence—Why did the body part fail? THAT is the question! After all, when body parts fail, they are a direct part of us. That means that when something goes wrong on the inside of our body and we begin to suffer with disease, we are responsible for our own suffering. When we choose to go against order, we create disorder.
Pathogenesis is the manner in which a disease originates. The human body is a ordered system. Doctors depend on its order to practice medicine. Without order, surgery would not be effective. The human body operates in an ordered fashion. All of the systems within the body, such as the circulatory, endocrine, and immune systems, operate in an orderly process. Because of this, there must be a sequential operation that causes disease to manifest. But medical science is all about “treating” the symptom, not curing the disease.
I know some will take offense at this and immediately say that their doctor or some drug cured their disease. But what about the hundreds of millions who suffer with heart disease, diabetes, cancer, asthma, insomnia, depression, etc.? No doctor is curing their disease! What about the millions of people who suffer through debilitating cancer treatments, chemo and radiation, only to find themselves stricken with cancer once again? And what about all those who died as a direct result of receiving toxic cancer treatments? How is this considered a cure? It’s not…
I suffered with over 35 diseases and NONE of them were cured—not one—until I found the TRUE CAUSE, or starting point, of my disease, eliminated it, and then true healing began. All doctors wanted to do was to treat my symptoms with drugs, which were prescribed to cover-up the truth, or they wanted to perform surgery when the drugs didn’t work. After all, that’s what doctors are trained to do. To see a partial list of the many diseases that I suffered, click here. Eventually, doctors wanted to pin yet another diagnosis to my chest—multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, and Lou Gehrig’s disease were kicked around.
For disease to originate, something is being done to the body that causes the disorder to begin. Disorder does not arrive out of nothingness—it can’t. For disorder to occur, order must have been present at some point in time. You can read more about this in my new book, WARNINGS of Disease: Your Body Uses Symptoms to Communicate.
Did you know that your body communicates with symptoms? Each and every symptom that you suffer is a message from your body. Its trying to tell you something! Every time you do something wrong, in other words when you go against your ordered design, your body immediately goes into action trying to undo what has been done. It tries to right the wrong. And when initial symptoms are ignored or covered up with drugs, the next order of business is for the body to fall into a state of disease. Millions of Americans are suffering with disease because they are ignoring themselves!
Modern medicine goes about blaming body parts for failing, but what it fails to disclose is that when body parts fail—we are responsible. Some inappropriate thing done to the body results in disorder.
What are some of the disorder-causing actions that result in disease? TOXINS—toxins cause disease. When toxins are put into the body, they cause disorder. Why? TOXINS are POISON. They cause injury or death. Poison kills by rapid action even in small quantities. But here’s something to know—toxins don’t always cause immediate death to the whole body, the person. Poison may cause death to the cell. From a cellular perspective, every organ in our body consists of cells. That means that the death or injury, which occurs from consuming TOXINS, begins at the cell level and works its way up.
So, how is the body exposed to deadly toxins? Junk food, drugs, and everyday products are filled with them! Every time you eat junk food and drink artificially-flavored beverages, they are filled with toxic chemicals. Every time you take drugs, they are filled with toxic synthetic chemicals. Every time you use everyday household cleaning products and personal hygiene products, they are filled with poisonous chemicals. Is it any wonder that so many people are so sick and diseased?
I cured myself, without doctors, of over 35 diagnosed diseases and 100 symptoms. EVERY symptom and disease went away after I changed my lifestyle and eating habits. I hope you will read my new book.

We have 4 dogs and fleas have been a HUGE problem this year. We’ve never had a flea problem before and I don’t know how they infiltrated our property. We’ve had back-to-back mild winters over the past couple of years and I suspect that may be part of the problem. But Maggie, our Border Collie/Lab mix, Abby, our Bichon Frise, and our two rambunctious young sisters, Zoe and Chloe, Golden Retriever/Lab mixes, are not too happy with the situation. We’re talking thousands of fleas. It’s horrible!
We live in the middle of a state forest surrounded by trees, palmettos, and everything wild. I avoid using chemicals at all costs and actively look for natural solutions to pesky problems. I don’t want to poison ourselves, our dogs, our water supply, or the environment with toxic chemicals.
Our main problem has always been tick infestations. But the strange thing is that with the current flea infestation, we haven’t seen any ticks. I wonder what’s up with that? Perhaps the two can’t coexist together. But whatever the case, I don’t know which is worse — fleas or ticks?
I’ve been trying different things on the dogs for fleas. I’ve tried various holistic flea and tick sprays, and I even tried dusting them and their bedding with diatomaceous earth (DE) , but none of it worked. The only thing DE succeeded in doing was to kill the plants where the dust settled.
Then, I tried apple cider vinegar. IT WORKED! I freely applied it from head to tail, making sure to avoid the dog’s eyes, gently rubbed it in until the fur was fully saturated, and waited a couple of minutes. To my surprise, apple cider vinegar kills the fleas almost instantly. I was able to rinse the dead fleas right off the dog. IT’S AMAZING!
I’ve only discovered this solution in the past couple of weeks. Next, I’m going to try putting apple cider vinegar in a spray bottle and spraying the dogs to see if it will help repel fleas. I also wonder if it will work on ticks? I’ll keep you informed as I learn more. But if you’re looking for an all-natural treatment for fleas — FULL-STRENGTH APPLE CIDER VINEGAR KILLS FLEAS ON CONTACT.
I’d be interested to hear about what natural ways you have found to kill fleas and ticks.

It’s been awhile since my last post. Best laid blogging intentions often get derailed by life’s circumstances, don’t they? I’ve been meaning to write about a highly toxic, carcinogenic chemical for months. So here goes…
There is a chemical used in nearly every manufacturing process worldwide that should be of concern to us all — FORMALDEHYDE. Formaldehyde is a pungent gas used in many other chemical compounds, especially plastics and resins. When added to water, it is called formalin — often used in the manufacture of drugs and vaccines. In 2005, world production was estimated to be 50 billion pounds! The manufacture of formaldehyde is BIG BUSINESS.
On June 10, 2011, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services issued their 12th Report on Carcinogens (RoC) from the National Toxicology Program. The RoC is a science-based, public health document, mandated by Congress. Formaldehyde is on the list. Why is this significant? The RoC identifies toxic agents, substances, compounds, and exposure circumstances that are known or reasonably anticipated to cause cancer in humans.
Let’s look at some of formaldehyde’s many uses: woodworking, cabinet making, glues that bond particle board, plywood, carpeting, sanitary paper products, facial tissue, table napkins, paper towels, insulation, moulded products, paints, explosives, foams, bath products, baby products, counter tops, veneers, laminates, complex plastic and resin compounds, textiles, sizing, no-iron clothing, in the manufacture of automobiles, as a disinfectant because it kills most bacteria and fungi, in medicine to dry the skin such as wart remover, as a treatment for parasites, toxoid vaccines, urinary tract infection treatments, topical creams, cosmetics, personal hygiene products, shampoo, embalming agents, as a fixative for microscopy and histology, and the list goes on…
Have you ever suffered with any of these symptoms?
- Eye, nose, and throat irritations (inappropriately reasoned to be caused by the common cold)
- Skin rashes or hives
- Burnt esophagus
- Burnt stomach
- Heart arrhythmia
- Irregular/difficulty breathing
- Red blood cell destruction
These are ALL symptoms of FORMALDEHYDE POISONING. Were you aware that these symptoms can be attributed to formaldehyde exposure, and even worse, that formaldehyde is KNOWN TO CAUSE CANCER? In view of formaldehyde’s widespread use, this should be of major concern to all people.
As can be expected, when the National Toxicology Program released the 12th RoC, formaldehyde manufacturers were greatly offended. Perhaps offended isn’t the correct word. Maybe alarmed might be more appropriate. After all, the manufacture of formaldehyde is BIG BUSINESS. Whenever a big conglomerate’s very mainstay is in question, of course they’re going to be concerned.
Here we see that the American Chemistry Council (ACC) issued a counter-attack, telling us how they think that formaldehyde is just peachy-keen. But wouldn’t we expect manufacturers to sing the praises of their products?
On the ACC website back in 2011 after the 12th RoC was issued, they called for an immediate appeal of the carcinogen ruling, and even went so far as to say that the manufacture of formaldehyde produces hundreds of thousands of jobs each year — as if that’s supposed to appease the issue? Well, apparently their appeal was heard by the FDA! Leave it to the good, old FDA to look out for the welfare of the American people. Yes, I’m being facetious. After all, the FDA is BIG BUSINESS, too.
The ACC website has changed since last year after the U.S. Department of HHS issued a NTP Addendum leaving formaldehyde on the known to cause cancer list. However, the ACC has another site, which they call formaldehydefacts.org, that once again sings the praises of formaldehyde. But the question remains, whose “facts” can be trusted? The manufacturer’s? I think not.
I recently noticed increased lobbying efforts and large presidential campaign donations have been bouncing around and flying under the radar this summer. In fact, the FDA ruled earlier this year on Bisphenol A (BPA), which contain formaldehyde, as, how shall we say — safe — by stating, “The Food and Drug Administration’s assessment is that the scientific evidence at this time does not suggest that the very low levels of human exposure to BPA through the diet are unsafe.” Really?? Not enough evidence?? Suggests?? Very low levels?? At this time?? Exactly whose data is the FDA reviewing?? The RoC is issued by a government organization based on science-based fact. The FDA’s statement was proudly displayed on the ACCs website devoted to “their” facts about BPA. Again, wouldn’t we expect a manufacturer to say their products are safe? But just saying it doesn’t necessarily make it so! Wouldn’t you think that the FDA would understand this simple truth?
In the meantime, Johnson & Johnson, which makes a wide range of personal care products including many baby products, announced that it would remove a host of harmful chemicals (including formaldehyde) from their product line by 2015. They had “already pledged to remove certain chemicals from its baby products by 2013,” according to a NY Times article on August 15, 2012.
If BIG BUSINESS pledges to remove toxic chemicals from their products, wouldn’t this imply that there must be something wrong with the toxin? No matter how many lobbying efforts and campaign contributions are made, the facts are the facts — toxic chemical compounds cause disorder and cancer.
I could go on and on regarding this subject, but I feel a need to close. Fifteen years ago I suffered with over 35 diagnosed diseases and over 100 debilitating symptoms. I also suffered with several bad cases of FORMALDEHYDE POISONING. My experience from deathly illness and weight gain to good health and natural weight loss are detailed in my new book WARNINGS of Disease: Your Body Uses Symptoms to Communicate; How Junk Food, Drugs, and Toxic Products Provide It with Plenty to Say. It is available through DaKeMaNi Publishing or on Amazon.
The next time you suffer with ANY of the symptoms listed above, I hope you’ll remember that these symptoms don’t just happen for no reason. Your body is trying desperately to communicate with you each time you experience ANY symptom. It’s up to each one of us to listen and heed our own WARNINGS. I changed my lifestyle and eating habits and over 35 diagnosed diseases and 100 symptoms simply went away, and I’ve been healthy ever since…

Inflammation is the key to understanding disease. Inflammation is an attention-getter! Inflammation is the body’s defense mechanism to ward off poison. Your body communicates that there is a problem with inflammation.
The human body responds to any toxic substance by producing inflammation. Many toxins are found in the processed foods that you eat and the every-day products that you use. After ingesting poison, the body uses five fundamental methods called the Five Cardinal Signs of Inflammation to get your attention—redness, heat, swelling, pain, and loss of function. These can be loosely defined as:
- REDNESS = STOP what you’re doing!
- HEAT = If you don’t STOP, you will get burned!
- SWELLING = Look, I’m fattening up to get your attention!
- PAIN = Maybe a little pain will get you to notice!
- LOSS OF FUNCTION = OK, if you can’t use it, maybe this will work…
The problem is—most people ignore the signs. Why? Man has created a crafty way to cover up the truth. Man’s answer to pain comes in the form of a tiny pill. Man’s antidote to disease is to drug himself to no avail. Keep in mind that an antidote is a medicine given to counteract a toxin, a poison. This means that some toxin is responsible for the symptom that caused the disease.
When pills don’t work, doctors get busy performing surgery to either take out what is bad or to replace what is faulty with a new body part. That is what doctors are trained to do, isn’t it? To make matters worse, doctors often label your dysfunction as a psychological problem when conventional treatments don’t work. This opens up the floodgates to all sorts of psychotherapeutic medications and behavioral therapies. But do drugs and surgery really circumvent the problem? Rampant ill health and obesity epidemics say otherwise. America’s health crisis proves that Man’s ways are not working.
You’ve tried to lose weight…
It’s hard, right? And even if you do, you end up gaining back every single pound that you lost—PLUS! Why is this?
You’re sick, tired and depressed… You’re filled with disease… Your child has been labeled with a learning disability or some other serious psychological condition…
You’ve been to the doctor—over and over again. You’re taking all the latest designer drugs. Medical tests often return “inconclusive” or “within normal limits.” Or maybe you’ve been diagnosed. BUT, you’re still taking drugs and you’re still sick, tired and depressed. Your body is in pain. You’re still overweight. Dysfunction has overtaken your life. Your child is suffering. All of those drugs and surgeries have not abated the problem one little bit.
Or worse, perhaps your body has succumbed and is now filled with disease. Asthma, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, insomnia, obesity, learning disabilities, and untold others—they’re all out of control. Perhaps you’ve been diagnosed with a few diseases, but has the diagnosis done anything to heal your body of the disorder?
- 65% of all Americans are overweight—Why?
- 24 million people in the U.S. have diabetes—Why?
- 38.4 million people have asthma—Why?
- Heart disease is the leading cause of death in America—Why?
- One out of every 3 persons develops at least one type of cancer—Why?
The fact is—the answer is being overlooked. For decades, science has been side-stepping pathogenesis—the true starting point of disease. During my search for good health and healing, I discovered that if you remove the source of a disorder, the body has the remarkable ability to heal. If you would like to experience good health and healing in your own life, buy a copy of my new book WARNINGS of Disease now.

In Conclusion 289
In March, my husband and I, along with two friends from church, went on an 11-mile canoe trip. The day was beautiful and the river was peaceful and serene – until the last leg of our trip…
Our goal was to paddle downriver to the place where two rivers meet and then disembark at a bridge. As we neared our destination, the trees disappeared at the open watershed and the headwinds picked up. We found ourselves desperately paddling against the current and made very little progress. At one point, my husband and I got out to stretch our legs and we got bogged down in the quicksand. I began to feel as if we weren’t going to make it out alive. But I’m happy to report that we survived and now look back on the trip with fond memories.
But that’s not the point. After the canoe trip, my eyes began to itch like mad. The next morning I awoke to find a lot of mucous in my eyes and to see that they were VERY red. Over the next several days, the itching became intense and my right eye began to swell. I could see bruising in the corner of my right eye, which was spreading down under my eye. There was blood leaking under my skin. I began to wonder if I had picked up some type of bacteria from the river water, or that perhaps some pathogen may have blown into my eyes from the windy prairie beside the river where the cattle graze. This thought led me to panic because of all the bad things that we see in the media, and I picked up the phone and called the doctor for an appointment.
Afterwards, I knew that I should not have made the appointment but it was too late to cancel. I knew that I should have kept looking for the true cause of the problem. And I knew that I should have given my body the time it needed to heal itself. But I panicked, as we have been programed to do when it comes to any problem the body encounters.
This is where I should add that I am opposed to taking any and all drugs. After doing research on diseases and drugs over the past 15 years, I know how toxic drugs can be! You can read more about toxicity in my new book, WARNINGS of Disease.
During the doctor’s appointment, I briefly explained why I had made the appointment. I detailed my medical history and discussed my new book (which the doctor was interested to read.) After examination, the doctor offered a prescription for an antibiotic, which I declined. She offered a prescription for an antihistamine, which I also declined. She offered a prescription for an anti-inflammatory, but I declined, too. Then she offered a prescription for a steroidal eye drop to stop the itching, which I vehemently declined.
After the doctor had exhausted her standard protocol, she realized that I was not going to take any of the drugs that she had to offer. She then said that the eye did not appear to be infected (which I already knew), and she said that it did not appear to be bacterial, which is what I wanted to hear! With that, I thanked her and quickly headed for the door. The doctor told me that the eye should heal itself (no kidding!), but if the problem persisted, I should come back for further testing.
Afterwards, I was remorseful that I had wasted time and money going to the doctor because I knew that going to the doctor meant prescription drugs and taking medical tests. But I was thankful that the doctor had the wherewithal to tell me that the eye could heal itself and for the opportunity to share details of my new book.
The itching, redness, and swelling around my right eye continued…
This is where I should add that even though I have eyeglasses, I seldom wear them anymore. My eyesight has progressively improved over the years, which I attribute to healthy eating. Earlier this year, I broke down and went to the eye doctor to get a new pair of glasses because the ones I had were much too strong.
At the eye doctor, I made it be known that I wanted just a visual eye exam, as it was done in days gone by before the advent of fancy medical machinery and the push of pharmaceutical drugs. I declined all of the eye drops and various tests that they had to offer. The eye doctor was surprised to see that my vision had improved, but was even more surprised to see that an astigmatism had gone away. I asked her if she had ever seen an astigmatism go away and she said no, they usually get worse. I proceeded to tell her about my new book and we talked about healthy eating for awhile.
Note that these two events, the canoe trip and the eye doctor appointment, happened around the same time…
In May, I spent several days at home without putting on my eyeglasses. I noticed that the itching, redness, and swelling had declined. I thought perhaps my body had finally been able to fight off whatever it had come into contact with that was causing the problem. As I was getting ready to go to church one morning, I put on my new eyeglasses and my right eye immediately began to itch. I thought, hmmm. That night, the itching, redness, and swelling returned and it took every bit of will power to not scratch my right eye out of its socket!
The next morning as I was getting ready to leave the house, I put on my new glasses and the itching became acute right where the pads of the eyeglasses touched the bridge of my nose. I took off the glasses and the itching was not as fierce. I put them back on, and the itching intensified. I thought, “Holy crap, the pads of eyeglasses are toxic!”
I quit wearing my new eyeglasses for a couple of weeks and the itching, redness, and swelling totally went away! Then, I went back to the eye doctor to see if I could get the pads on the eyeglasses replaced with something else, since I’d never had this kind of problem before with glasses. When I explained why I was at the doctor’s office without an appointment, they said “No problem. We’ll just replace the pads with hypoallergenic ones.” I was told that the pads that came with the glasses were made from vinyl and that I was lucky that I didn’t have any raw, oozing, infected skin from the reaction, like so many people have.
Lucky?? How many people suffer through the same reaction to toxic vinyl eyeglass pads without ever knowing what is causing their problem? How many people go to their physician complaining of itching, redness, swelling, and inflammation of the eyes, only to come out loaded down with prescription antibiotics, antihistamines, anti-inflammatories, and steroidal drugs, which do nothing but cover up the symptoms? Why are toxic eyeglass pads even used to make eyeglasses? If people are reacting to them, they shouldn’t be allowed!
The whole point is, my body was presenting with symptoms telling me that something that I was doing was wrong. The redness, swelling, itching, and inflammation were all WARNINGS signs from my body. Had I not known any better and allowed myself to fall victim to the medical protocol, not only would my body have been toxic from the toxic eyeglass pads, I would have fallen victim to the use of toxic drugs being pushed by the pharmaceutical industry through doctors, AKA drug pushers.
Had I kept wearing the eyeglasses without searching for the true cause of my problem, the itching, redness, swelling, and inflammation would have continued and become acute. Then, I would have been sent to an ophthalmologist for further medical testing and most assuredly, more potent drugs would have been prescribed. As the problem persisted, surgery might even have been advocated.
By looking for, and finding, what was actually causing my symptoms, I was able to remove the cause and therefore effect a cure! My new book, WARNINGS of Disease, details the cause and effect of disease. Our body uses symptoms to communicate. It is up to us to listen to what is being said, and to take action to remedy the situation.
As a side note, I’ve had no reaction to the hypoallergenic eyeglass pads that were used to replace the toxic vinyl ones…

With the Supreme Court’s recent 5-4 approval of Obamacare as being a legal and just tax on the American people, the long-term ramifications of this policy are only beginning to surface. While it may seem nice and deserving for those citizens who cannot afford health insurance, the new law “imposes” the burden of the new tax on the middle-class. But didn’t Obama himself claim that Obamacare was not a tax?
I don’t know about you, but I’m a middle-classer. And those in the middle-class that I know are already suffering tremendous financial burdens after the depression of 2008. I know many without jobs. I know many whose homes are in foreclosure. I know many recent college grads who are unable to find descent work. I know many adult children who are living at home.
IF the middle-class is called upon to give to the poor when the middle-class is already in a state of dire hardship, THEN the middle-class becomes poor as a result of it. This new call for taxation imposes a new tax on a class already in distress, which can only result in the creation of not one lower-class sector of society, but two. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to readily see what will happen next.
With the Supreme Court ruling regarding Obamacare, the American people need to realize how important it is, now more than ever, to become a healthy nation! The American people should focus on self-healing and preventative treatment, instead of drugging themselves to no avail. To do this, Americans must understand the cause and effect of disease and obesity.
Our present-day healthcare system is in shambles. Disease is out of control. Obesity is quickly hedging toward the 70% level. Drug use is at an all-time high. It should be obvious to all concerned that our current way of doing things is not working.
In my new book WARNINGS of Disease, I focus on the cause and effect of disease to reveal how obesity is the end result of improper consumption. I was diagnosed with over 35 diseases and was overweight, yet doctors were unable to provide a direct cause. Doctors prescribed dozens of drugs and advocated multiple surgeries, but I kept getting sicker. So I decided to take matters into my own hands and to step away from the unknown. I was tired of not knowing why I was sick. I soon realized that since it was my body that was sick, there must be something that I was doing wrong that was making me to get sick. This is the basis of cause and effect.
I realized that most doctors don’t care about why or how I got sick and gained weight. All they care about is getting rid of the symptoms. When a patient goes to a doctor with a complaint, the doctor gets out his prescription pad to authorize a drug that will coverup the malady. And when drugs don’t help, he advocates surgery. There is no cure involved. There is no talk of prevention. There is no talk about diet or exercise. Here – just take this drug and I’ll see you in a month – when your prescription runs out. This creates a medical paradigm (standard), which perpetuates sickness and disease!
When a patient buys into the model of perpetual disease, when they accept a doctor’s judgement (the diagnosis), then the patient becomes stuck in a perpetual state of dis-ease. Good health is never the outcome.
In order to gain good health, we must do things that are good for us. We need to eat healthy foods, not processed junk food. We need to exercise, which is proven to be beneficial, not sit on our hind ends being idle. We need to use non-toxic products, not ones full of cancer-causing ingredients. We need to avoid toxic chemicals, altogether.
Once I came to understand the importance of taking care of my own body and then taking action to do so, I was CURED of my diseases, and I lost weight without even trying. I no longer take any drugs. I lost over 60 pounds. And I have been healthy for the past 15 years. As a result, I really resent our government dictating what kind and how much health insurance I must buy.
The newly legislated Obamacare is a travesty for an already sick and financially-burdened nation. The demand that all citizens buy health insurance is touted as a new tax, but it opens the floodgates to our government being able to demand every citizen to buy homeowners’ insurance (to lighten the government burden of federally-backed loans), to buy flood insurance (a government program), to buy pet insurance (to lighten each municipality’s burden of animal control), etc. At what point will our government’s demands stop? We need to remember the definition of communism – A political theory advocating class war, which leads to a society in which all property is publicly owned and every person works and is paid according to their abilities and needs. Is this what the American people want?
An article published by the Chicago Tribune on June 4, 2012, reveals how the FDA is at it again. They are altering the rules for drug testing, specifically those that target breast cancer.

An article published by the Chicago Tribune on June 4, 2012, reveals how the FDA is at it again. They are altering the rules for drug testing, specifically those that target breast cancer. Here’s the link to the article: http://www.pressdisplay.com/pressdisplay/viewer.aspx
The new rules, set to be released this week, will allow drug companies to use women as human guinea pigs—not all women, just those with aggressive breast cancers considered “triple-negative breast cancers.”
But here’s the caveat. Doctors want to introduce drugs into women with “very early stage breast cancer” before surgery is performed. If this succeeds, then pharmaceutical companies could win big—faster approval times. In other words, drug companies would gain a new avenue for getting their drugs to the market at an advanced rate—all in the name of science. While drug companies become the apparent victor, women suffering with breast cancer turn into human guinea pigs!
Up until now, drug treatments deemed to be “promising” were only allowed on the market after they were proven to be safe and effective—a process which normally takes up to ten years to complete. But with these new regulations, the floodgates will be OPENED. Again, who is the victor?
I believe the writer of the article hit the nail on the head by saying that “The FDA is taking a risk with the new strategy.” Women suffering with breast cancer in much earlier stages will now be subjected to new medications that pose a potential (and I’ll add, probable) safety risk to the overall health of the patient. The woman becomes the guinea pig—a person used as the subject for an experiment.
Time and time again we’ve seen that drugs, which have advanced through the FDA’s normal approval process, end up causing great mayhem afterwards. FDA-approved drugs have resulted in countless deaths and disabilities. Those drugs that end up causing chaos are pulled from the market, the drug company’s hand is slapped, doctors go on to prescribe different drugs, and the FDA continues doing what it does best—approving toxic chemicals for human consumption. The poor patient is left to live the rest of their lives in pain and misery, while the family of a deceased, must deal with the aftermath.
However, the jury is still out on so-called triple-negative breast cancers. There are conflicting results in studies regarding them. Prognostication is hypothetical.¹ Good grief, science doesn’t even have a handle on non-triple-negative breast cancer yet! Less than one in every eight women will suffer with some type of breast cancer. Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women today, next to skin cancer. And it is the second leading cause of cancer-related death in women, second only to lung cancer.²
But heaven-forbid, pharmaceutical companies have jumped on the bandwagon of yet another new disease with unresolved pathogenesis. And the FDA is going to allow this to happen. Forget about what’s CAUSING breast cancer! Let’s just create and sell more drugs. There’s money in that, you know.
Back to the caveat. If the FDA is allowed to proceed with their “new” guidelines for authorizing toxic compounded chemicals to be introduced for human testing on early-stage breast cancer, this will open the floodgates for thousands of similar claims. Drug companies will be given carte blanche to do as they see fit. Forget about what’s CAUSING cancer!
In my new book, WARNINGS of Disease: Your Body Uses Symptoms to Communicate, you’ll discover that cancer has an absolute cause. If you take away the cause of cancer, then the body will no longer have the need to be cancerous.
For fifteen years I have laid claim that the toxic chemicals found in detergents, deodorants, and synthetic materials may be responsible for causing breast cancer along with the toxins found in processed foods. Science knows that toxic chemical compounds create cancer. But for some reason they turn around and create more toxicants to treat that which they created in the first place, without ever taking the responsibility for the original toxin that they created. It’s a never ending cycle.
The skin is the largest living organ of the human body. It absorbs whatever it comes into contact with. If women wash their bras in toxic detergents and use toxic fabric softeners and dryer sheets, then wear the bra day and night, the breast skin is subjected to a continual onslaught of toxicants that are absorbed directly into the body. If deodorant filled with toxic compounded chemicals is also used, it too, is absorbed into the skin and has a direct pathway into the lymph nodes under the arms.
Recent studies at the University of Reading in the UK, have shown that parbens were present in 99% of the cancerous breast tissue that was examined.³ While this does not historically prove that parabens are responsible for causing breast cancer, it does indicate a possibility.
Add to all that, living on a diet of synthetic processed foods filled with excitotoxins (monosodium glutamate, aspartame, caffeine), and you’ve got a real recipe for disaster. With the case of cancer, all it takes is for just one cell to go awry. We need to keep our bodies clean and pure.

I read an interview that was done with a doctor who has written a book about the asthma epidemic. Here’s the link to the story: http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2012-05-02/health/ct-x-0502-expert-apaliski-20120502_1_asthma-epidemic-asthma-rate-asthma-cases
It is reported that roughly 34 million Americans suffer with the affliction. Asthma rates have jumped drastically since the 1980s, but researchers are still scratching their collective heads as to WHY.
Asthma is defined as a a respiratory condition of the lungs. It is marked by spasms in the bronchi, which causes difficulty in breathing. Notice that when a person is diagnosed with asthma, the diagnosis is nothing more than a definition of a problem. That’s all a diagnosis is—a definition. A diagnosis has nothing to do with a cure. But also notice that the definition of asthma, the diagnosis, does not prove pathogenesis—the true starting point of disease.
During the interview, the doctor said that while there are many theories for the condition, no one really knows what causes asthma. His recommendation, as an allergy and asthma expert, for combatting asthma attacks is to have a plan in place to control the symptoms. His plan includes taking drugs and avoiding triggers. He also noted that we [I'm assuming he meant—doctors] have the “best medication and the best understanding” of the disease.
What’s wrong with this picture? Approximately 34 MILLION Americans suffer with symptoms of asthma. About 4000 people die each year from asthma-related symptoms. Having the so-called “best medication and best understanding of the disease” has done absolutely NOTHING to CURE asthma—nothing! In fact, incidents of asthma are rising—drastically.
But there is a further definition of asthma that should be noted—it usually results from an allergic reaction or other form of hypersensitivity. This is science’s attempt to state pathogenesis, without actually doing so.
The doctor in the interview noted that people suffering with asthma should avoid triggers. He discussed perfumes and colognes, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) as being triggers for asthma attacks. Note that these “triggers” are chemical compounds. But also note that drugs, including those used to cover-up asthma symptoms, are also chemical compounds.
In my new book, WARNINGS of Disease: Your Body Uses Symptoms to Communicate, I describe how asthma medications that contain sulfates (albuterol sulfate, salbutamol sulfate, and terbutaline sulfate), which most do, can actually cause breathing difficulties and swelling in the throat. In other words, the drugs that are used to treat asthma can be the precipitator for it!
The human body reacts to poisonous compounded chemicals by initiating the inflammatory response, otherwise known as an allergic reaction. If the body is continually exposed to toxic chemicals, it can become hypersensitive to them.
However, there are other toxic chemicals that can also be responsible for causing asthma that are seldom contemplated by researchers—toxic food additives found in processed foods and drinks.
Back in the early 1990s, my son was diagnosed with asthma. When I changed our diets and lifestyle habits to include nothing but whole foods void of synthetic chemical food additives, his asthma completely went away. If you’d like to read more about his story and my experience with conquering devastating disease, please read my new book WARNINGS of Disease.

New Year’s resolutions have come and gone. The time to get ripped and look good in that new swimsuit for summer has faded away. Now, people are just hoping to lose some weight before the holidays rapidly approach and they pack on the pounds all over again. Holiday eating is the standard excuse for weight gain. Obesity rates have now surpassed the 65% mark. It’s being reported that obesity may rise to a staggering 85% in less than ten years time.
Churches are filled with prayer requests for the sick and dying. Heart disease is the Number One Killer in America. One in every three families is touched by the ravages of cancer. Some studies report that the average patient now takes eleven medications. Drug use is out of control, so is disease and obesity.
But does anyone ever stop to ask – WHY?
After suffering with over 100 symptoms and 35 diagnosed diseases, and a proffered diagnosis of either multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, or Lou Gehrig’s disease, that’s exactly what I did. I asked – WHY? Why was I sick and dying? Why was I overweight? However, doctors were unable to answer my questions. This got me to thinking – did anyone really know the answers?
So I set out to find the answers for myself. And did I ever find them! By changing my diet and lifestyle habits, I was cured of all disease and lost over sixty pounds without even trying. I have been perfectly healthy for the past fifteen years and take no drugs.
In 2009, I took a hiatus from my work as a Forensic Document Examiner and Handwriting Expert to complete the manuscript and bring this book to print. The book includes my personal story of healing along with fifteen years of scientific research. What I found was that you don’t have to be filled with disease and you definitely don’t have to be fat. Each person can choose to be healthy or not.
My personal mission for writing WARNINGS of Disease is to help people realize that artificial food additives and toxic chemicals, including those found in drugs and everyday products, are responsible for causing sickness and disease, with obesity being the end-product of consumption.
