Hulda Regehr Clark
Hulda Regehr Clark is a naturopath, author, and "controversial" practitioner of alternative medicine.
Clark began her studies in biology at the University of Saskatchewan, Canada, where she was awarded the Bachelor of Arts, Magna Cum Laude, and the Master of Arts, with a High Honors major in biology. After two years of study at McGill University, she attended the University of Minnesota, studying biophysics and cell physiology. She received her doctorate degree in 1958 from the University of Minnesota. Her own biographical sketch states that her degree was in physiology, but the Graduate School's Register of Ph.D. Degrees conferred by the University of Minnesota July 1956-June 1966 states that she received a Ph.D. in 1958 with a major in zoology and a minor in botany, with a thesis entitled "A study of the ion balance of crayfish muscle; evidence for two compartments of cellular potassium."
In 1979 Clark left government-funded research and began private consulting and her own research. She operated the Century Nutrition health clinic in Tijuana, Mexico, where her focus was primarily on late stage cancer patients. She has published several books on human health, including The Cure of All Cancers, The Cure for HIV/AIDS and The Cure For All Diseases.
According to court records, Clark's books have generated over $7 million in sales.
She has a naturopathy degree from the Clayton College of Natural Health, a school that lacks accreditation from any accreditation agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.
Clark claims that disease essentially has two causes: parasites,
bacteria and viruses; and pollutants which damage the immune system. She claims
that parasites, bacteria and viruses can be eliminated by using herbal
treatments and by using electrical treatments, which purportedly electrocute
foreign organisms. In conjunction with eliminating pollutants from the diet and
from the environment, such treatments can, she asserts, cure diseases.
In her book "The Cure For All Cancers" Clark postulates that all cancers are caused by the flatworm Fasciolopsis buski. However, this worm does not live in the USA and Europe. F. buski exists mainly in India, parts of China, Vietnam and other east-Asian countries, and there only in rural areas where people are eating unboiled food from water plants, or where pigs live close to humans. She also claims that HIV is a worm virus and that that worm is responsible for AIDS: "I find it (F. buski) in every case of HIV, Alzheimer's disease. Without this parasite you can't get HIV." According to Clark depression is caused by hookworms.
She claims that all diseases can be cured using her methods, including pains in various parts of the body, digestion problems, all cancers, HIV/AIDS, warts, and diabetes.
She claims that scientific medical treatments for diseases such as cancers and HIV/AIDS often only focus on treating the symptoms of these diseases, while her treatments are able to cure the disease itself. David Amrein's website contains a disclaimer stating that Clark's treatments are "not prescribed as treatment for medical or psychological conditions" and that "...the treatments outlined herein are not intended to be a replacement or substitute for other forms of conventional medical treatment." Nonetheless, Clark has advocated for the use of her methods as a substitute for standard medical care:
Does this mean you can cancel your date for surgery, radiation or chemotherapy? YES! After curing your cancer with this recipe it cannot come back... Remember that oncologists are kind, sensitive, compassionate people. They want the best for you. They have no way of knowing about the true cause and cure of cancer since it has not been published for them.
Regarding the effectiveness of her treatment, Clark has written, "The method is 100% effective in stopping cancer regardless of the type of cancer or how terminal it may be. It follows that this method must work for you, too, if you are able to carry out the instructions."
Major methods and topics
The Cleanses (5)
The Clean-ups (4)
Diet Cleanup: She talks extensively about how contaminated she
believes our food and supplements are, with such things as heavy metals,
manufacturing by-products and residue, and mold.
Homeography: Clark calls this a "new science ... which is the electronic analog of homeopathy." She claims that an electronic signature of a substance can be transferred into bottles make a "bottle copy" of the original substance. The process can then be continued ad infinitum without any need to buy more of the original substance.
Liver flush: She advocates the use of a 'liver flush', which is claimed to remove gallstones and parasites from the liver and bile ducts. This involves a partial fast for a day, epsom salt laxatives, and a mixture of olive oil and grapefruit juice.
Parasites: Clark insists that most people have parasites inside them, and that these parasites cause a host of problems. She describes herbal and electronic methods to remove them. These methods include known herbal anti-parasitics as well as electronic treatment of her own device (Zapper, see below).
Syncrometer: A device invented by Clark, which she claims can detect contaminants in substances up to one part per trillion. The Syncrometer is a so-called bioresonance (bio feedback) unit.
Zapper: An electronic device which pulses low voltage DC current through the body at specific frequencies. Clark claims this device can kill viruses, bacteria, and parasites. In at least one reported case, a patient with a cardiac pacemaker suffered serious arrhythmias as a result of interference from the "Zapper".
In 1993, while Clark lived and practiced in Indiana, a former
patient complained to the Indiana attorney general. An investigator for the
Indiana Department of Health and a deputy attorney general visited her office
incognito as part of a sting operation. Clark proceeded to test the investigator
and "told him he had the HIV virus [sic], but said that he did not have cancer."
She told the investigator that she could cure his HIV in 3 minutes, but that he
would "get it back" unless he committed to returning for six more appointments.
She then ordered blood tests from a laboratory. Upon learning of the undercover
investigators' status, Clark stated that everything she had told them had been a
"mistake". Two days later she had vacated the premises.
In September 1999, Clark was located and arrested in San Diego, California, based on a fugitive warrant from Indiana. According to Clark, this was the first time she learned about the charge. Her lawyer protested the long delay before her arrest, but a prosecutor implied that she fled Indiana "when she learned that she was being investigated by the state," and that the local police department had limited resources to devote to finding her. She was returned to Indiana to stand trial, where she was charged with practicing medicine without a license. The charge was later dismissed for failure to provide her with a speedy trial. The judge's verdict did not address the merits of the charges but only the issue of whether the delay had compromised Clark's ability to mount a defense and her right to a speedy trial.
In February 2001, Mexican authorities inspected Clark's Century Nutrition clinic and ordered it shut down, as the clinic had never registered and was operating without a license. In June 2001, the Mexican authorities announced that the clinic would be permitted to reopen, but was prohibited from offering "alternative" treatments. The clinic was also fined 160,000 pesos (about $18,000), and Clark was barred from working in Mexico, even as a consultant; however, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported in 2003 that there was evidence that Clark continued to work at the clinic.
Evaluation of claims and criticism
Hulda Clark has been criticized because her claims lack
scientific validity and consist of anecdotal evidence. Joseph Pizzorno, a
prominent naturopathic physician, evaluated Clark's claims and found that her
books mixed patients with conventionally diagnosed cancer with those whose
cancer diagnosis was based solely on her use of the "Syncrometer". The patients
with medically diagnosed cancer did not respond to Clark's treatment, while
those she had diagnosed using the "Syncrometer" were "cured". Pizzorno concluded
that Clark's treatments were ineffective and that treatments based on Clark's
recommendations "pose a substantive public health danger".
The Swiss Study Group for Complementary and Alternative Methods in Cancer (SCAC) issued a strong warning to cancer patients considering Clark's methods:
“ There is no scientific basis for Hulda Clark's hypotheses and recommendations, including her suggested treatments. The parasite Fasciolopsis buskii does in fact exist, but only in Asian countries, so that an infection in our country is ruled out. Consequently, this parasite does not enter into consideration as a cause of the numerous cases of cancer in the Western countries; at most, it might be one of several causes of liver cancer (and only for this type of cancer) in the Asian countries. As a whole, Clark's thesis cannot be comprehended, nor is it proven. In individual cases, her advice can be very extensive and costly. Hence if patients do not apply her method consistently and their disease continues to progress, they run the risk of attempting to blame themselves for this, rather than Clark's treatment which is ineffective, as viewed at present. ”
Prominent alternative medicine proponent Andrew Weil has written, "No studies have backed up [Clark's] bizarre claims, and it’s unclear whether the cancer patients she’s supposedly cured ever had cancer to begin with."
In 2002, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported that Clark and her son Geoff operated a restaurant and leased housing for patients at Clark's Tijuana clinic. The article described a couple whose daughter, suffering from spinal muscular atrophy, was treated for 10 months by Clark at a cost of approximately $30,000 without improvement. Despite the cost and lack of improvement, the couple stated that Clark insisted she was close to curing the child, and that stopping treatment might endanger her. The patient's mother commented, "People don’t understand why we stayed so long, but Hulda Clark did a very good job of preying on us," and Clark, while stating she could not respond to the parents' allegations on grounds of patient confidentiality, denied their statements in general.

What readers say about books by Hulda Clark:
Dr. Clark's research and suggestions are being followed by my family: 9 children and 7 adults residing in two states. The results are amazing and remarkable! The biggest gift we were given is one male adult's 35-year case of psoriasis are going away before our eyes! It is incredible because medical doctors have never managed such excellent results. So far, two adults did the kidney and liver cleanses with EXCELLENT results including relief from indigestion, psoriasis improved quicker, weight loss amongst other improvements. In addition, migraines have disappeared in the female adults, commonly occurring ear infections and stomach flu in the children have also disappeared when the parasite program started. Using colloidal silver has caused toe, toenail and fingernail fungus to clear up completely. Doctors have been amazed at the results; their recommendation was to continue doing whatever we're doing! I cannot praise this book enough, and it is a "must buy" for everyone! Tell your friends and family if you care about them.
Being the writer of this review, I must add that I have NOT been sick since I started zapping and doing the parasite program. Everyone around me at work was sick during allergy and flu season this winter except me. I also gained great relief from the liver cleanse and can't stop talking about it. Hurry......empower yourself and make your own decisions for your health instead of allowing the government and powerful drug companies to make decision that ultimately kill us and make them rich!
I came across this book in the mid-'90s and pursued it to treat a condition one of my children was having. There was dramatic improvement and, although we have recently found the condition to be genetic, the guidelines in the book have helped to increase my daughter's abilities beyond where medical doctors (who expected her to die) said they could go. (We also used her methods to prevent and cure a variety of smaller problems in our family, such as allergies, colds, headaches, and so on.)
We went to her clinic in Tijuana, since it's not terribly far, and she never charged us more than $50. I can't say with certainty that she charges everyone the same, but we got a lot for our money. Dr. Clark sat down with us on each occasion and managed to actually spot some toxins in our environment we hadn't even considered. (We also got X-rays at one point, but not from her, and it's Tijuana, so they don't cost much.)
While in her clinic, however, I met a lot of people who had before-and-after test results for cancer and AIDS, and many, many people who had only come to her after their MD had written them off.
Obviously one should be sensible about one's health, but that goes both ways. It's just as foolish to believe blindly that the medical establishment is always right about everything as it is to believe every quack that comes down the road peddling snake-oil.
You can do this treatment entirely yourself for a couple hundred bucks so that Dr. Clark doesn't get a dime -- down to borrowing the book from the library and photocopying it. You can take the easy way out and buy supplies from reputable dealers, and it might cost you a hundred bucks more (but require less time investment). Nothing in her program conflicts with standard medical treatment, so it's not like you have to give up going to your M.D.
For some people, there's no worse shame than being "suckered" or spending a dime more than they have to. (Though I have to admit, we've spent nothing on doctors for the past several years, saving way more than we spent on the program.) Ultimately, it's you who has to live (or die) with your choice.
I've known about this book for years, since it came out, but I was always turned off by the hideously new-agey cover and the similarly crackpot sounding title. I read extensively about health and alternative medicine, but am very critical of all new-agey approaches that emphasize the idea that the source of illness is spiritual or psychological (not that this is not possible, but I believe it is rare - not at all the cause of the vast majority of illnesses).
I'm not sure what compelled me to finally buy the book, maybe curiosity. But I was surprised and delighted to find that it is based on physical, biological issues in the body (namely, toxins and parasites). The methods of ridding the body of these disease-causing elements are both eccentric (using electricity) and traditional (herbal formulas).
I have not built the infamous zapper yet, but out of curiosity I might, since I am familiar with some of the other uses of electricity in medicine (eg, the Rife machine), and know it has benefitted people in those circumstances. So far I have found the pet parasite elimination program very helpful, as well as the mold-reducing hygiene tips (soak grains and dried fruit in vitamin c solution to de-mold them - and they taste so much better! non-soaked items now taste musty to me).
My caveat is the following: I was compelled to do some research on this book, and on Hulda Clark. (I am a professional researcher working on a PhD in the humanities, so it's my instinct to check resources as best I can). What I have discovered so far is this: I have read that Hulda Clark died recently (though I haven't confirmed the details on this), and that she seems to have signed off certain rights to a person by the name of David Amrein, who is now the president of the "Dr. Hulda Clark Research Association." The problem I have is that David is a MBA-weilding Scientologist (this is confirmed by several sources, including a Scientologist-run website), and is using the methods of Scientology to profit off of Hulda's work, and is implementing questionable marketing tactics in the manner of aggressive, multi-level marketing style ploys that the Scientologists traditionally engage in, and in effect is destroying the potential for integrity and recognition that this work might otherwise be able to attain.
What this means is that when you try to do a search on Hulda Clark, you get dozens if not hundreds of websites that are all marketing stuff - stuff that is not necessary to purchase (Hulda has instructions on building the necessary equipment yourself at hardly any cost, and the herbs are all available from any herbal medicine supplier). The whole work of Dr. Clark's is sadly going through a major cult-branding (to see this dynamic on another - although toxic - substance, run an internet search on Klamath lake blue-green algae, and you'll see a similar pattern. And there are numerous products out there that are traceble back to Clearwater, Florida, and Scientology marketing gimmiks). There is no record that Dr. Clark herself was a Scientologist, and by the absence of marketing in her work it seems she was not.
This is unfortunate, because this kind of marketing is misleading, and clogs up internet search engines for people trying to do legitimate research on a product.
If you do do research, note you will also find information written by anti-alternative medicine people and organizations (quackwatch) about the "scandalous" fact that Dr. Clark had a medical degree from a correspondence school. So what? Her previous graduate education was accredited. She's a trained researcher, whether or not she's a licenced doctor. Many MDs are ivy-leage certificated, but m*o*o*ns when it comes to healing people. I base my judgement on the integrity of the research in relation to other work in the field (ie, alternative medicine), as well as on it's ability to affect positive change in my own biological existence, which this work has. It's just a shame that it's been turned into a marketing monster.
Lots Of Good Information, Take It With A Grain Of Salt,
There is a huge amount of good information in this book. I think she goes a little far in some of her recommendations but it's worth buying for all the information.
Thought the book is interesting. Its another viewpoint, and there are
definitely some things I can agree with and recommend.
Some of it is easier to do than others.
I guess its a matter of choosing what one agrees with and then live with this new way of handling or preventing diseases.

great understanding of human health,
I have read dozens of books on how to stay healthy and fit. In my
opinion Hulda Clark's understanding of what went wrong and how to correct
it are right on the mark.
3 of 3 people found the following review helpful:
I was addicted to this book, if only for a while,
OK, this book may be highly controversial, but this woman is SUPER
smart and has helped hundreds of people.

Clarke's Cure for All Diseases,
A very helpful and informative book on many subjects which I am unfamiliar with - especially in the line of toxins, contaminants and poisons that are in the products and environment around us. I appreciate her attitude of helping us to help ourselves, rather than just selling products to make money. I have much to learn yet!
I personally had/have four of the best forms of cancer on the planet. Oh well that was eight years ago. There are many hours of research. Good books are a treasure. The past is our future. I thank Amazon.com for the resources. :) jerry thompson
We have owned the book for about 10 years. The information in it is verifiable, and interesting. We bought a zapper many years ago, and used it a lot. The results were phenomenal. My late husband had Multiple Sclerosis, and a daughter had parasites. Both were had incredible results, and we have applied her suggestions in many areas of life. If you love to read information about health breakthroughs that WORK, you should read Hulda Clark's book!
Read the other posts for book content. I got the stuff for the Zapper
although there is a website to get a manufactured new and improved one. She's
right that Radio-shack doesn't have all the parts anymore. My husband said that
Frye's had everything we needed. He put it together for me one evening was about
ready to pitch the works because it didn't, work, that is. Fiddled with it next
day and got it working.
I zapped yesterday and had more energy than I've had in a long time. I started on the Kidney Cleanse today and so far my eyesight has improved, I feel energized and the stuff didn't even taste terrible. I've had herbal tea that tasted worse. Coffee and tea taste much worse to me. I'm going to keep a jounal of my progress. I'm going to follow the protocol's in the book as closely as possible. I'll update my post now and then. I don't mind trying something new. At least this stuff won't hurt me like some of the nasty stuff doctor's have given me in the past. Day three and energy level is so great it is hard not to over do. I can see better and work harder than I have been able to in a long time.
Weeks later and I haven't followed the protocols like I should, the only thing I've done at all cosistently is zap and still I have gone from getting headaches every time I even had a nibble of a cracker or a piece of bread or any sugar to being able to eat whatever I want again. I do intend to go back to doing the different cleanses in the book, but I've been reading some fun stuff and then I'll get back to the serious business of health improvement.
December 31, 2007. My whole family has been laid low by some bug that has them all coughing and feeling lousy and I've got a little tickle in my throat but out of everyone I'm the healthiest one in the family and I'm the only one zapping. The others are unable to for one reason or another. I still haven't gone back to doing the drinks. They call for a non-reactive cookpot and we have a glass stove-top. The pans I found that were non-reactive said not to be used on a glass stove-top. Anyway, that won't hold me back for long. I'll update when I get it figured out.
If you can't figure out how to make the thing, find someone who is familiar with electronics and have them build one for you, or just buy one on line. I paid $79.00 in Doctor prescribed drugs for someone in the family who can't zap because she's got braces and she sounds worse and feels worse than before she started on the drugs. So, don't go belly-aching about the cost. It is much more expensive to be sick and go the standard route.
This book is excellent eye opener for those who wish to learn the truth about the wide spread illnesses that most suffer today.After reading this book i realise if doctors did treat patients how would they keep up their luxury life style. Any one can treat them selves by following simple remedies in this book.I have bought over 10 copies already for friends.
