The gallstone cure that wasn’t
Townsend Letter for Doctors and Patients, Nov, 2005 by Alan R. Gaby
A 40-year-old woman with multiple 1- to 2-mm gallstones documented by ultrasound underwent a ”liver cleansing” regimen at the advice of an herbalist. The regimen consisted of free intake of apple and vegetable juice until 6 p.m., but no food, followed by consumption of 600 ml of olive oil and 300 ml of lemon juice over several hours. Early the next morning, multiple semi-solid green ”stones” were passed per rectum. Analysis of the stones revealed that they contained no cholesterol, bili ... read more

How to test your urine and saliva pH 13 y
Actually the body fluids and therefore the urine is most acid at 2:00 A.M. (pH 5.0 to 6.8) in the morning (the base tide) and most alkaline at 2:00 P.M. (pH 7.0 to 8.5) in the afternoon (base flood).
”The ideal pH numbers depend on the time of day. Plotted on a curve it looks like the double hump of the back of a camel. Two times a day the urine should be alkaline and that is the top of the humps and corresponds to 10 A.M. and 2 P.M., the alkaline tide after meals. During the rest of the day the pH should be between 6.6 and 6.8. This is optimal urine. The first urine in the morning sh ... read more

Dead Health Gurus and failed health promises
Reprinted from http://www.rawtimes.com
It might be wise to kick off this column on health with a cautionary tale.
Dr Paavo Airola was once the best-known health expert in the United States.
His books were international best-sellers. In 1983 Dr Airola offered to
publish a health book I had written in the US.
We corresponded to this end for some time. But then he stopped writing.
Weeks went by, then months. Eventually I assumed that Dr Airola had got
Little did I realise how cold. Ultimately a letter arrived from his office.

You Are Not Over-Weight - You Are Over-Acid
”Let us first understand the facts,
and then we may seek the cause.”
- Aristotle -
Obesity in America is worse than ever before. New statistics reveal that a startling 64.5% of American adults, or more than 120 million people are overweight or obese. US obesity experts say, these numbers, probably mean a definite increase in diabetes and heart disease cases, if things do not improve. The number of Americans who are overweight, is the high acid level ever recor ... read more
Acid/alkaline theory of disease is nonsense, NOT! 13 y
pH balancing physiology
As it pertains to email concerning, ”Acid/Alkaline Theory of Disease is Nonsense,” I would suggest Dr. Mirkin refer to the following books:

B-12 and vegans
You can view HTML version at http://www.treeoflife.nu/ewellness.html
To understand the significance of this issue, we need to understand a little about the importance of B-12 in the diet. The average non-vegetarian stores between 2,000 and 3,000 picograms (pg., same as micrograms) of B-12 and loses about 3 pg. per day. About 60 percent of the total amount of the B-12 in the body is stored in the liver and 30 percent is stored in the muscle. The body has a special circulation pattern between the digestive tract and the liver. Through the bile, we secrete 1.4 pg. per day of B-12 into the ... read more
