Auto-Immune Diseases - The Mystery Illness
There’s a reason why I termed these "mystery illnesses". They are all considered to be syndromes because in medicine the etiology or the cause is unknown. There are a lot of theories about cause and causation... more...

Are We What We Eat?
The human body evolved over millions of years, ingesting seeds, grains and plants containing certain complexes of nutrients. By the natural selection process of evolution, the body developed the mechanisms necessary to use these nutrients simultaneously, each one being essential in a chain of interactions.

Your evaluation disclosed that I had severe allergies, as well as Candida. Over the course of the past year, following your instructions, I eliminated polyester from my wardrobe and bedding, as well as other allergy-related substances, filtered my air and water, eliminated the Candida through a combination of diet and homeopathic treatment and, of course, received regular treatment in the office.
