Q. You have written: “Bees and mosquitoes tend to sting you on your near meridians that need stimulation. Consider it a free form of acupuncture. If strong swelling follows a sting, the poison triggers an immune response that is then cleaning out a lot of other stuff that wasn’t supposed to be there. People have been permanently cured of arthritis and gout from being stung by mosquitoes or bees, although these people needed dozens of bites at one time. Their hands and feet swelled up tremendously and, when the swelling went down, they had no more pain. Clay and urine are always good remedies for that sort of thing. Ice application can also reduce the swelling. But if you can handle it, I would let nature take its course.”
This is interesting, but then why do so many people die from bee sting? Thanks.
A. There are people who are allergic to the poison/venom and go into anaphylactic shock. The shock reaction can suddenly drop blood pressure and build up fluid in the lungs. Minute amounts of allergens may cause such a life-threatening reaction. Among those who have an allergic reaction to insect stings, up to 1% may die as a result. However, overall only 18 deaths per year occur as a result of such a reaction. An otherwise healthy adult would have to be stung over 1,000 times to be at risk of death. Most deaths caused by multiple stings have occurred in men in their 70s or 80s who were known to have poor cardiopulmonary functioning. In other words, bee sting deaths are extremely rare. You are much more likely to die from a lightning strike.
Blood types, metabolic body types, Dr. Mercola
Q. Have you heard of Dr. Mercola? He has an article here about grains being bad for us: http://www.mercola.com/article/insulin.htm
And, if you read the above link and this one from the Paleolithic diet: http://www.mercola.com/article/carbohydrates/paleolithic_diet.htm
It talks about how our systems were designed for hunting and gathering. I agree that refined carbohydrates are bad, but I think it depends on your blood type and body chemistry whether you are better off on a low-carb diet. What do you think?
A. Yes, I have known about Dr. Mercola’s work for many years. He has the most visited health website in the world. I agree with him about a lot of things, but not about his metabolic typing.
The healthiest civilizations in the world have been eating grain foods for more than 10,000 years, including the ancient Indian, Chinese, Tibetan, Incan, African, Japanese, Greek and many South Americans. Diabetes and obesity were unheard of in these places until more recently when other influences of unhealthy diets infiltrated their culture. So his theory doesn’t stick with me.
However, if animal proteins are eaten with starch foods, like meat and potatoes or fish and rice, that’s when major problems arise. All these cultures were mostly vegetarian, so they had very few problems with that. But here, the high protein diet is incompatible with a starch food diet, and people become clogged up and obese because of it. To process the protein from just one steak, the pancreas has to produce as much insulin as used for half a pound of white sugar. This creates insulin resistance very quickly. Too much insulin in the body causes inflammation and cancer, so the cells begin to resist taking up insulin, which means glucose is also not absorbed. This weakens cells, and organs become inefficient or fail, while the glucose has to remain and rise in the blood (diabetes). I have extensively written about the grain food mystery in Timeless Secrets of Health and Rejuvenation.
The blood type diet is heavily flawed. I have written about it in a section on vegetarianism in the Timeless Secrets of Health and Rejuvenation. If the blood type were to determine the dietary needs, nature would have regulated nutrient content of breast milk according to blood types of mother and child. But nutrient content is the same in all mothers. It is always only about 1.4% protein during the first 6-8 months and up to 0.9 % after one year, which should tell us something about human protein requirements, and is otherwise mostly fats, cholesterol, carbohydrates, minerals, vitamins, antibodies, etc. During a child’s greatest growth period (first 16 months), the body would have certainly made sure that the baby would receive adequate protein.
Cell phones and other electrical energy
Q. Are cell phones really dangerous? If so, how can I protect myself from the dangers of their energy?
A. Cell phones aren’t the only item sending out harmful electrical energy. Following are a number of ways to minimize your EMR exposure and decrease the hazardous risks of cell phones and other electrical appliances in the home.
- Minimize all exposure and usage of wireless communication: cell phones, cordless phones, and WiFi devices.
- Turn the cell phone off when not in use. Never keep it near your head or use it to play games, movies, etc.
- Keep the cell phone at least 6-7 inches away from your body and others while on, talking, texting and downloading.
- Use air tube headsets or speaker mode when talking. Wireless and wired headsets still conduct radiation!
- Never keep the cell phone in your pocket, purse, back or on your hip all day. The hip produces 80% of the body’s red blood cells and is especially vulnerable to EMR damage. Close proximity may also affect fertility.
- Do not talk on a cell or cordless phone when pregnant, with a baby/small child in your arms, under age 16 months, or while in a vehicle (car, train, plane, subway). Radiation gets trapped and is higher in these closed metal zones!
- Minimize other EMR exposures to a developing fetus via Ultrasounds and Electronic Fetal Monitoring unless absolutely necessary.
- Replace all cordless and WiFi items with wired, corded lines (phones, Internet, games, appliances, devices, etc.). The cordless phone base emits high levels of EMR – even when no one is making a call.
- Minimize/schedule blocks of computer use, sit back from the screen; flat screens are preferable. Use wired Internet connections, not WiFi – especially for laptops. Keep laptops off the body and away from metal surfaces.
- Keep a low-EMR sleep, home, and personal zone by doing the following:
- Move the alarm clock radio at least 3 feet from your head or use battery power; six feet is the recommended distance from all electronic devices during sleep.
- Avoid waterbeds, electric blankets and metal bed frames. Futons/wood frames are better than metal-coiled mattresses and box-springs.
- When using electric stoves, cook on back burners instead of front as much as possible. Metals attract EMR: keep them away from and off of the body. Use glass, cast iron and uncoated pans for cooking.
- Measure EMR from wireless and wired devices with appropriate meters
(see www.safewireless.org). To decrease exposures, install EMR filters and preventive technologies to electrical circuits, devices, appliances, etc.

Energy, people living at high energy level
Q. Timeless Secrets of Health & Rejuvenation was a fabulous book! You mention people who were living life at a very high level and who live in remote parts of the world. I sympathize with these kinds of people. I feel like if I get comfortable in my own skin, I’ll either get killed or jailed, so I’m living a life where I’m holding my breath a lot. Could you tell me about these people who live in these remote areas? I sometimes dream about living in these areas.
A. You resonate with them because you were once one of them (and in a way, you still are), and your dreams are glimpses of the parallel realities we call past lives. These people in remote places spend much of their time outside their physical bodies, which makes them very much aware of what is happening on the planet, on all levels. They anchor their energies into the inner earth and feed it into the planet’s grid system, which is like the meridian system in our bodies. Their meridian system and that of the earth are reconnected and one. So their intentions, insights, and love feed this grid system and prevent it from breaking down.
There are attempts made by those in charge of the dark energies to damage the grid system through HAARP climate control, hence the recent earthquakes, cyclones, floods, droughts, and targeted lighting strikes in CA that are behind the wildfires. The goal is to decimate the world’s population by two-thirds and we are heading in that direction fast. It will all look like natural occurrences (diseases like Bird Flu caused by FluMist vaccines and other catastrophes). People living in natural rural areas will be better off, living more or less self-sufficient lives, whereas those in big cities will fight over water and food, and against man-made epidemics. So holding your breath for a while will be a good idea. This is the last desperate attempt to control the masses and the planet, but it is already too late, and it will fail. The light energies increase with the dark energies and it will be hard for those ill-intentioned people to be in control for much longer. They don’t realize that it is they who will actually bring about the transformation they don’t want to see happening.
Q. I went to a person who did energy work over my liver and then I had a number of ionic footbaths, which turned dark green from the bile. Is this helping to clean out my liver and gallbladder?
A. I am sorry to disappoint you about the ionic footbath effect. I had a machine myself about 10 years ago and tested it out on a lot of people. It’s more or less a gimmick. I achieved the same discolorations of the water (green, blue, red, with bits and pieces floating in the water) simply by using different metal wires. For example, take two silver wires and attach each one to a different lead of a 9-volt battery. Within a few minutes, you have blue water. The longer you leave the wires in the water, the stronger is the color. If you use copper or other metal wires, you get different colors. All of this happened without putting any feet in the water! I have never seen anyone benefiting from these footbaths, except perhaps as a good placebo (you believe what you see).
Ionic minerals, colloidal minerals
Q. I am very curious about your mineral statements. I’ve read lots of authors who claim colloidal minerals are bioactive and are able to get into the cell. You say they don’t. I am not sure what to believe. So, are colloidal minerals a waste of money?
A. Liver flushing actually helps to restore minerals in the body. To digest and absorb minerals one needs bile. The more that bile becomes available to the GI tract, the more minerals become absorbed and utilized.
I have recommended ionic minerals for many years and in two of my books for people suffering mineral deficiency. However, these minerals are of the angstrom size, versus colloidal minerals which are much larger and therefore much more difficult to absorb. Trust your gut on that.
You might want to look at the site, www.gesundheit.ca, which offers phytoplankton containing all the micro-nutrients that exist in one product.
Life Ionizers, alkaline water
Q. This is regarding alkaline water and Life Ionizers. What are your comments to the information offered by Stephen Lower, retired faculty member of the chemistry department at Simon Fuller University in Vancouver BC? See http://www.chem1.com/CQ/ionbunk.html. I look forward to your response.
A. Thank you for passing on that link. I actually read it some time ago, but must admit I am not an expert with the regard to the technical details. Instead, I would like to refer you to the owner of LIFE ionizers, who has worked with these machines for many years, Rick Cabados. You may e mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also check out the papers that were written about this: http://lifeionizer.com/
Personally, I have used ionized water for about 10 years, and found no other water better than that. It is easy to discredit something that one hasn’t tried out, and I question the motivation of those who discredit what has helped so many people. For example, I had one patient recently who, after many years of chronic pain, became pain-free after drinking high-alkaline ionized water for just 3 weeks. Blood cell analysis shows that blood platelet aggravation normalized within 30 minutes of drinking it. I can only speak for what I know that ionized water does to people’s health when they drink it but, not having the necessary background, I cannot explain the exact technicality of it like Rick can. I just know that it works, which is good enough for me.
Q. What do you think about Lipoic acid, could it be useful to treat oxidative (nitrosative) stress?
A. Lipoic acid is essential for the human body in that it helps with the cellular uptake of glucose. People whose blood sugar doesn’t properly leave the blood stream are prone to diabetes, neurological disorders and other metabolic illnesses. Diet is the best source of lipoic acid, and although supplements have not shown to have side‐effects, there are a lot more benefits if it is ingested as part of food, such as green food, e.g. chard, collard greens, spinach, broccoli, zucchini, etc. People who don’t eat enough lipoic acid in their diet tend to age faster and suffer from oxidative stress.
Q. You have changed my life and I thank you for that from the bottom of my heart. I have a question for you. Could you tell me why you would or would not have the microchip implanted in your skin? Thank you for taking the time to read this.
A. I certainly would not have a microchip implanted under my skin, largely for the reasons mentioned in movies like the Zeitgeist (see section on health of this free movie: http://www.zeitgeistmovie.com).
The controlling powers in the world know that an ever-increasing number of people are becoming aware of their inherent spiritual powers and are awakening. The people are realizing the massive manipulations that have occurred for a long time. One of the main stated objectives (Rockefeller, Pentagon, et. al.) of the controlling powers is to decimate the world’s population by two thirds. They do this by way of chemical trails, creating diseases through drug dispensation, food additives, seed control, genetically modified foods, pesticides, television etc. The next step is to lure the masses into believing they would greatly benefit from having a microchip under the skin, for their own health and safety. This will become the final act of brainwashing and mind control. The chips can be programmed to alter desires, instill fears, and make people do certain things they would otherwise never do. The Russians developed these technologies decades ago, but now they can be used on the masses.
People will become like robots, robbed of their free will. They will be told that staying in their homes and getting all their information and everything else delivered to them is going to keep them safe, and many will fall for that. Eventually, they want everyone to have microchips so they can track every single person on the planet. Nobody will be able to hide anywhere. The way the idea is being sold to people is purely positive, so people will want to have the chip. People will say things like “I’ve got my chip” and feel proud that they have it. It will become a fashionable thing to have. Eventually, those who don’t have the chip will not receive health care or education, access to government institutions, bank accounts, a driver’s license, etc. They will become practically homeless, unless they submit their lives to the chip.
I trust that enough people will recognize what is happening and resist all this, which is likely to stir up a revolution. It will be good to move away from densely populated areas (cities) because life can become turbulent when the masses learn about the true reasons behind 9-11, Iraq, Afghanistan, etc.
QXCI Computer diagnostic/treatment system
Q. Are you familiar with the QXCI “quantum” energy diagnostic/treatment software/hardware system? If so, could you comment on it please?
A. I am familiar with QXCI and find it to be very advanced. I have worked extensively in the past with the BICOM bio-resonance machine but let it go after I discovered more efficient and long-lasting methods of restoring balance in the body/mind/spirit complex. There is a great value in everything that man has created, good and bad, if seen through the wide-angle lens of the larger picture that is always there. These new technologies are fascinating, yet still limited. There are often more powerful causes behind other causes that affect our biochemical/electrical physiologies that do not even stem from this life stream experience. Without dealing with those, we are still left with some major challenges.
Sunlight, sunglasses, sun block
Q. You mentioned how important it is to get a lot of sun. Do we want the sun’s rays to go to the pineal gland through the top of the head or through the eyes or the skin? What do you think about wearing sun block and sunglasses?
A. All of the body parts mentioned are good places to get sun. Sunglasses and sun block should both be avoided. Sunglasses are a leading cause of cancer. More information on this topic is available in my books Heal Yourself with Sunlight and Timeless Secrets of Health and Rejuvenation.
Sunlight, best time for sun exposure
Q. You write… “The midday sun isnʹt a good time to sunbathe…” That means, for everyone, regardless of body type and skin type? New research states that this is the only time to get UVB and that is the UV we need the most for the protection against skin cancer. This is very confusing.
A. You are right about that, at least to some extent. I was surprised myself when I heard about the new research, but it makes sense relative to where you live. When I wrote about this, I still lived in Cyprus where staying in the sun between about 11:30 p.m. and 3 p.m. during the summer at 110F or more would certainly cause burns, blisters and heat strokes. I don’t think the study refers to countries so close to the equator, but refers to the northern countries like England, Northern Europe, even middle or southern Europe, Canada, and the Northern States. I never had a problem with summer noontime sun exposure in Germany, Switzerland, France, Austria, and Italy, but when I lived in India, the midday heat was over 120F and it is not just unbearable but suicidal to be in the sun during that time. Same when I lived directly at the equator in Kenya, Uganda and Ethiopia or in the desert of Egypt and Morocco; being out during noontime in the summer makes you feel you are imploding.
Also, different body types and races respond to the sun differently. The pure Pitta type (red hair, reddish, fair skin, blue eyes) absorbs the UV rays much faster and more of them than any other body type, and being out in the midday sun quickly reddens and burns their skin, which greatly stresses the immune system. Dark skinned people absorb fewer rays and may need more noontime exposure to get the benefits, especially in colder countries. Black people in rural Africa will be fine, but black Africans living in Minneapolis or Toronto will be more prone to immune deficiency illnesses, heart diseases, diabetes and cancer without a lot of extra sun exposure. And noontime exposure may be vitally necessary for them. Dark‐skinned people need to live in the Southern hemisphere or near it to remain healthy, that why they were there from the beginning of civilization.
Testing methods, kinesiology
Q. What do you prefer: pendulum energy testing, muscle testing (o-ring method) or dowsing? Any pointers on your preferred method would be appreciated.
A. When I wish to provide someone with a sense of physical/energetic shift after such a session or when using Ener-Chi Art, I use Arm Muscle Testing (kinesiology) as a way to verify the effectiveness. For me personally, I simply ask my body/mind/heart for answers to any questions I may have and I tend to get the answers one way or another, verbally, intuitively, or through simple knowingness.
Urine therapy, AUT
Q. What do you think of urine therapy? And how would I do it exactly? How much should I drink, when and how often, etc?
A. This is what I wrote about Urine therapy in Timeless Secrets of Health and Rejuvenation:
A Note on Auto-Urine Therapy (AUT):
Auto-urine therapy is an age-old practice of India and China and is currently gaining popularity worldwide, especially in Europe. It has shown success in the treatment of a wide array of disorders, including multiple sclerosis, colitis, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, hepatitis, pancreatic insufficiency, psoriasis, eczema, diabetes and herpes. For three million Chinese, drinking their own urine is an accepted health practice. Former Prime Minister of India Morarji Desai, who lived up to the age of 99, has been the most well known proponent of this therapy. In Germany, a former president’s wife openly admitted drinking her own urine on national television.
AUT entails using your own urine internally or externally as a way to treat or prevent illness. Most people are under the wrong impression that urine is a toxic waste product that could harm us if we were to ingest it. Toxic or otherwise harmful substances are removed from the body through the liver, intestines, lungs, and skin. The main role of the kidneys is to maintain proper fluid balance in the body and ensure that the blood always contains a balanced amount of minerals, salt, hormones and enzymes. Urine is sterile after secretion and has an antiseptic effect. Many who were shipwrecked or were lost in the desert survived by drinking their own urine. Urine contains everything that a person needs to survive, including water, minerals and vitamins.
Dr. B.V. Khare, an allopathic doctor and Mumbai-based follower of AUT, says: “The Italian surgeon Stanislau R. Burzynski, now settled in America, separated antineoplaston from human urine and showed remarkable results in the treatment of cancer. Another substance found in large quantities in the urine is called dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA). It is a hormone related to testosterone. This, as research showed, has anti-cancer, anti-obesity and anti-aging properties. It has also been found that urea when recycled by ingesting, is converted into essential amino acids.” All in all, urine contains 15 known ingredients that work synergistically to keep the body cancer-free. Among them are the anti-cancer drugs interferon, and interleukins 1 & 2, urea, uric acid, 3 methylglyoxal, DHEA, H-11, directin, antineoplaston.
The most common method of AUT is to consume your morning urine (mid-stream part) completely and without dilution. It can also be used to gargle or swished through teeth for gum protection. As described above, urine can also be administered to the body through enemas. When applied to wounds and broken bones, urine helps prevent scarring and swelling. It draws toxins out of areas of inflammation and permits the healing to occur faster than it normally would.
Q. My question does not involve a certain aspect of health as much as it does operating a wellness center. I am curious about the legality of everything you offer. Can you offer some insight or direct me to some places regarding this aspect? I have had a dream to start a wellness center in my area, but I am not a nurse or doctor of any sort, so I am concerned about what services I could offer. I’m thinking about offering colonics, ionic footbaths, saunas, and nutritional consultation for a wellness center. Do you know if a person has to have some license to offer them? Thanks for your contributions, Andreas!
A. To give colonics, you will need to do a short training and have some sort of certificate. To give nutritional advice, you would want to be a nutritionist. Legislation for such alternative practices may differ from state to state. You don’t need a license to give people footbaths or saunas. If you make no claims about what you do, you are pretty safe. However, hands-on practices like therapeutic massage require a license in most states.
