Dec 11 2019 BREAKING NEWS! SUCCESS WITH AGED GARLIC

Test Results "MIT" - CD4/CD8 ratio increases from .57 to .62 after two months of using aged garlic and there was a significant drop in triglyceride levels!

Conrad LeBeau
Today, I received very good news on the latest test case from Europe that has been underway for the past two months. Here is a direct excerpt from the email I received earlier today. A few days a after receiving partial results, MIT wrote-

"Hello Conrad

I had blood test done today, and the results started coming in.

Still no answer to Cd4, Cd8, Cd4/Cd8 ratio, viral load, but all the rest regular (22 test), like liver, kidney, cholesterol, triglyceride,,glucose, total white blood cells etc.

All the 22 test is in the normal range. My triglycerides have never been so low. And very good total cholesterol.

So I can tell you now, that the kyolic had no bad effect on liver, kidney, and even lowered my triglycerides

The final results just came in from the Dec 10 test today -

CD4 was last time 640. Now 560
Cd8 was last time 1.1 (1100). Now 0.90 (900)
Cd3 was last time 1.9 (1900). Now 1.6 (1600)
Cd4/Cd8 ratio was last time 0.57. Now 0.62

Conrad. This is only for 2 months. And I have been taking only 8 capsules a day. That is only 4.8 grams.

Something right has happened. A little drop in Cd4, and in Cd8, giving me a better ratio. I have never been at 0.62 in ratio before.

Do you think the ratio will raise more if I keep on. Maybe take a bigger dosage?

But do you think the results are good?

Regarding the triglycerides, the reference range in Denmark is below 2. Mine was 1.06 on latest test. Never been that low:)

In addition to the above, the following comments were received by email on Dec 14, 2019 from MIT-

Hello Conrad, you are also welcome to use the following, if any need the information. What I experinced while taking Kyolic. The first 2—3 weeks I had a feeling of being warm in the body. I also had a little red irritation in my face. A few times I had a little stomach ache. It all disapperead within the 2—3 weeks.

Then I began to notice several changes.

1. My stomach got so much better. Really big floating stools.

2. So much better sleep. Sleeping through the whole night without waking up, unless my cat woke me up.

3. More fresh weaking up, and more energy during the day. No nap.

4. Going fast up the stairs without being out of breath.

5. Pee much better.

6. After my resent blood test, I was happy to find out, that the kyolic does very good together with my HIV medicine. That is important to know. MIT


My reply to MIT: First, congratulations for sticking to your regimen for the past 2 months. I would certainly keep using the aged garlic and retest in a few months again. You have taken a small but important step not only for your own benefit but for the thousands of people who will read about your results on this website. Essentially, as you pointed out to me in an earlier email, a friend with HIV who had very high CD4 counts died from cancer. What good are high CD4 counts if they don't protect you?

It has been consistently reported in the scientific literature that garlic improves Natural Kill (NK) cell function. NK cells protects us from cancer and numerous other diseases. The purpose of increasing the cd4/cd8 ratio is to reach the goal - a cure for HIV/AIDS that allows all drugs to be eliminated and for patients to exhale a sigh of relief. The only living example we have now of someone who was cured of AIDS is "Mary from Brooklyn." See this story in past newsletters.

Published studies that I will quote in a few weeks with the next newsletter clearly indicates that not only AIDS progression is directly associated to a low cd4/cd8 ratio but infections and mortality are also directly connected to a low cd4/cd8 ratio in both HIV+ and HIV- populations. In fact in a non-hiv aging population, longevity depends on a high cd4/cd8 ratio and early death is linked to a low cd4/cd8 ratio.

Also, in babies breast fed from HIV+ mothers, the babies with the highest cd4/cd8 ratios do not get AIDS! Yes, functionality of the subsets of the WBC cells in protecting one from illness is more important than counting numbers on a lab test. Doctors and patients alike have been distracted for decades by lab results that are impressive but, unfortunately, do not deliver conclusive results. We must focus on what goes beyond controlling the virus HIV, and seek what cures AIDS - a disease of both immune imbalance and chronic inflammation. Conrad


Dec 4 2019 Update

Patent M.T.
Test with aged garlic underway to see if the cd4/cd8 ratio can be increased in an HIV patient first diagnosed in 1995. The most recent cd4/cd8 ratio was 0.57

Conrad LeBeau
     While "Mary from Brooklyn" used raw garlic in her 7 part HIV/AIDS protocol as we reported in our last newsletter, one reader from Europe (alias M.T.) is now attempting to duplicate the 1989 study (1) using 5 grams of Kyolic aged garlic extract powder each day to determine what effect it will have on his cd4/cd8 ratio over a 2 month period. If aged garlic in a certain dose can achieve a cure or near cure for AIDS or cancer, I think a lot more people would be willing to give it a try.
(1)A Report of 7 AIDS patients taking 5 grams of aged garlic daily for 2 months by H. Abdullad, D.V. Kirkpatick and J. Carter; Published in Deutsche Zeitshrift Oct 1989.

Dec 3 2019. Email from M.T.
Hello Conrad
     I’m first having new blood test done next week. I hope there will be answer to the test next week, so we can see if anything happened. My latest blood work is from 19 august with Cd4 at 0.64 (640) and Cd8 at 1.1 (1100) and Cd3 at 1.9 (1900) and Cd4/Cd8 ratio 0.57
     I started the Kyolic powder capsules 13 October with 5 grams a day (about 9 capsules). So when going next week for new blood test I will have been taking the Kyolic for 2 months (8 weeks).

            Test results will be published on this website after we receive them, possibly in the Dec 17 to 24 time period. The complete protocol he has used over the past 24 years that included remedies like the whole lemon/olive oil drink and low dose Naltrexone will be published in the next journal due at the end of this month. Is there anyone else out there in Internet land with HIV or cancer who is willing to test 5 grams of aged garlic daily for its medicinal benefits?

Fiber and Longevity
A Case Report on two folks who used Metamucil for decades

     The year was 1999. This report was verified by two eye witnesses from Franklin, Wisconsin. Paul and Rick moved to a house in the suburbs of Milwaukee county in 1999. They bought an old farmhouse that had an abandoned greenhouse on the property. Inside the greenhouse was several hundred empty bottles of Metamucil, a psyllium husk supplement sold over the counter for promoting digestive and heart health.
     This story would not be newsworthy if it were not for one small and important detail. The new home owners talked to neighbors who lived close by and reported that the life long married couple died at the respective ages of 102 for the woman and 104 for the man.
     There is plenty of published research on the importance of fiber in the diet for promoting gastrointestinal health, and preventing of delaying the onset of illnesses from cancer and heart disease. Clearly, if you can delay or avoid developing both cancer and heart disease, your chances for living a longer life are significantly improved.
     Suggestion - try mixing one tablespoon of psyllium husk powder with one heaping teaspoon of ground flaxseed powder with water or fruit juice and take this once a day for supporting gastrointestinal and immune health.

Scientific Opinion on the Cd4/Cd8 ratio in HIV and its health implications in the search for a cure

C. LeBeau

Since publishing the report of the HIV/AIDS cure of "Mary from Brooklyn" last month, several persons have sent me emails seeking to learn more about the cd4/cd8 ratios and its importance. In the mid 1980's, it was reported that the first immunological event after HIV infection is the flipping or inversion of the cd4/cd8 ratio. The normal ratio range is from 1 to 2.9 with an average of 1.6. The ratio can be determined in two ways. One is to divide the absolute CD4 counts by the absolute CD8 counts. The second way is to divide the Cd4 percentage by the Cd8 percentage. Either way you get the same ratio.

Example of a normal ratio: 900 absolute Cd4s divided by 560 absolute Cd8s =1.60 - a average normal ratio.

With AIDS, the ratio of cd/cd8 is always less than1.0. A typical cd4/cd8 ratio is .50 or less. To get a ratio of .50, your Cd4's could be 300 and your Cd8's 600. If you have 300 Cd4 cells and divide it by 600 Cd8 cells, you also get a ratio of 300/600 or .50. If you have 400 Cd4 cells and 800 Cd8 cells, your ratio is still .50.

For a ratio of .20 you will need 5 times as many Cd8s as Cd4s. If you divide 100 Cd4 cells by 500 Cd8, your ratio is .20.

The following is excerpted from PLOS Pathogens, a free open acess scientific publication from the National Library of Medicine. The article title is-

HIV-Infected Individuals with Low CD4/CD8 Ratio.......Exhibit Altered T Cell Subsets..... Heightened CD8+ T Cell Activation and Increased Risk of Non-AIDs Morbidity and Mortality.

Authors: Sergio Serrano-Villar1*, Talia Sainz2, Sulggi A. Lee3, Peter W. Hunt3, Elizabeth Sinclair3, Barbara L. Shacklett4, April L. Ferre4, Timothy L. Hayes4, Ma Somsouk3, Priscilla Y. Hsue3, Mark L. Van Natta5, Curtis L. Meinert5, Michael M. Lederman6, Hiroyu Hatano3, Vivek Jain3, Yong Huang7, Frederick M. Hecht3, Jeffrey N. Martin8, Joseph M. McCune3, Santiago Moreno1, Steven G. Deeks3.

Here are two brief paragraph outlining their thoughts:

"Combining the data from four clinical cohorts and two clinical trials, we demonstrate here that a substantial subset of ART-suppressed HIV-infected adults who have achieved virologic suppression and a normalized peripheral CD4 count (≥500 cells/mm3) have persistently elevated CD8 counts and a low CD4/CD8 ratio. This ratio is correlated with markers of T cell activation and innate immune activation (IDO induction) and with the presence of a previously described immunosenescent phenotype (i.e., low naïve T cell frequencies and increased frequency of terminally differentiated). This imbalance in T cell homeostasis measured in blood is also present in GALT, and the CD4/CD8 ratio shows lower intra-individual variability than the CD4+ or CD8+ T cell counts."

"Although early ART (<6 month after HIV infection) is associated with more rapid normalization of the CD4/CD8 ratio, an abnormal ratio persists even in these aggressively treated individuals. Among well-treated individuals with high CD4 count, a low ratio was an independent predictor of serious non-AIDS events and mortality. Collectively, these results suggest that a persistently low CD4/CD8 ratio during ART may be a marker of persistent immune dysfunction and inflammation, and that monitoring of this ratio—which can be readily done in most clinics with current assays—may be clinically useful. A truly successful response to ART may require both normalization of the peripheral CD4 count and the CD4/CD8 ratio."

The full article is available here in printable pdf format. Unfortunately, the article does not give you a step by step plan to achieve a normal Cd4/Cd8 ratio which may be the immunological key to live a normal life.

Our challenge at Keep Hope Alive is to find individual success cases and report them here. I think there are HIV+ individuals who by some combination of treatment protocols got their Cd4/Cd8 ratios back to normal and are probably taking HIV drugs they don't need any more. It is very important in the quest for find an AIDS cure for everyone affected by this disease to pay close attention not only to their viral load and CD4 counts but also their Cd4/Cd8 ratio.

In France, some of the earliest cases of AIDs in the mid 1980's were treated with prednisone, a powerful anti-inflammatory steroid that mimics the adrenal glands own production of hydrocortisone. Hydrocortisone or low dose prednisone would suppress the inflammatory Cd8 cells, Il-6, and improve the Cd4/Cd8 ratio and decrease morbidity, extend a person's life span and improve quality of life. Low dose Naltrexone has also been very helpful in this area.

Natural remedies that should also improve the Cd4/Cd8 ratio include stress reduction, deep restful sleep, garlic, sunlight, infrared light, indoor tanning beds, detox drinks like the whole lemon/olive oil drink, cold processed whey protein, high fiber diets, flax seed, beets, Organic foods, and the minerals sulfur (garlic, onions, cabbage), selenium (Brazil Nuts)and silica (oatmeal). Mushrooms and Colostrum have also been reported to be very beneficial. Enjoy salads, steamed foods, soups and low temperature cooked foods in a slow cooker.

Avoid excess consumption of white sugar, corn syrup, soda pop, ice cream, refined and processed foods, hard liquor, and tobacco products, also avoid one a day vitamin pills, individual synthetic vitamins including D3 and most of the B vitamin family, enriched wheat flour, GMO corn and soy, and other lifestyle choices that are both stressful and toxic. What is your Cd4/Cd8 ratio? Write to us and share your experiences and results.

Sept 5 2019 "Mary from Brooklyn" The Report of an AIDS Cure

Keywords: Aids, Cure, garlic, blackseed, sunlight, seroconversion

Conrad LeBeau
Due to past newsletters published on this website, I continue to get messages from Africa and some from Asia asking for details on how to cure AIDS with black seed and honey. Unfortunately, attempts to duplicate Dr. Onifade's black seed and honey protocol as a mono-therapy have not been successfully duplicated here in the U.S. or in Europe. However, black seed need not be tossed away just yet.

From all available information, it appears that one person has successfully been cured of HIV/aids from New York City. I am referring to "Mary for Brooklyn." She used black seed as part of her protocol that included about half a dozen other factors. The other parts of her protocol are thought to be critically important, and without doing the whole program, duplicating Mary's cure of HIV/AIDS will most likely fall short of the goal of a "cure."

Locating the most complete article on her protocol on this website has been difficult for some as key words were not correctly entered for proper search engine optimization in the original articles. To solve this problem, I am providing a link to the article that describes her entire protocol - It is here: https://keephopealive.org/d2017v15n1.html. After and only after you have read the article, and if you need further information, email Mary at maryfrombrook@gmail.com.

Update Note: While Mary used high doses of prescribed Vitamin D2 and later D3, the actual resoration of normal CD4/Cd8 ratios actually occurred in May, less than 3 months after March 2015, and before the D2 and D3 supplements was added. In an update to the 2017 vol 15 No 1 journal, I give my opinion why sunlight should be trusted (not vitamin D2 or D3 pills) as the preferred safe and effective source of natural Vitamin D.

Note: A permanent link to the protocol used by Mary is now posted in the right column of this website on the home page. It will take you to the updated and revised version of the 2017 article in v15n1.

Protect yourself and your credit cards from Internet Scams

by Conrad LeBeau
The Internet is a vast reservoir of information, unprecedented in the history of mankind. There are three groups of people who use the Internet. The first group are honest, sharing, good, selfless and usually non-profit. One example of a selfless site is Wikipedia, a non-profit org. They provide a virtual encyclopedia of free information on a wide range of topics. Wikipedia is supported by small donations and accepts no advertising. While I find the writings at Wikipedia are 90 to 99% in agreement with my own research on a range of topics, I have also found some misleading articles that I blame on "experts" who use the good reputation of Wikipedia to spread misinformation.

[An example being an article at Wikipedia on vaccines that supports the view that all vaccines are safe. There are legitimate concerns about the safety of some vaccines, but the pro vaxxers are so adamant that science supports them, that they have closed their minds, and they are angry at doctors who publish research that challenges the safety of vaccines. However, on the subject of money, Wikipedia states that they have found no law in existence today that defines what a "dollar" is, and on that point, I certainly agree with them. ref: my book on "Money Creation" ]

The second group is the largest, and they seek to monetize sales by using search engines to keep track of what people are interested in and present them with an endless array of pop-up ads. The most common search engine to do this is Google. Google makes billions of dollars targeting audiences with advertising of products and services based on Internet search engine results.

Purchases made at ebay, paypal and amazon.com are protected with refund policies or money back guarantees. If in doubt about any product or the company that distributes it, always check with the Better Business Bureau where the manufactuer is located.

The third group of Internet users are downright evil. Some are even part of the dark web where stolen credit card numbers, bank account numbers, social security numbers, and birth dates are bought and sold. This group is criminal, self serving, deceptive and manipulative. Also, readers who have a few bucks to invest are often victims of get rich quick schemes especially in the investment newsletter category. One reason why people are tricked into making big purchases, automatic renewals and longterm contracts is that they either don't read or understand the "Terms and Conditions" of the sale. The other problem is "short term money back guarantees" - an example being such as 30 days or less from the date of purchase.

Consider that if you make an investment to buy a book or an investment newsletter and you are told you have a money back guarantee but you don't read the fine print in the "Terms and Conditions" of the purchase that is limited to 30 days.

What is wrong with a 30 day money back Guarantee?

What is wrong is that when you make an Internet purchase with a debit or credit card, your monthly statement usually takes about one month (30 days) to arrive. If you are not satisfied with the book, newsletter or product you purchased and you seek to cancel the purchase and get your money back, guess what? By the time you make this decision, your 30 days is up. You probably did not read the terms and conditions of the sale. Second, it takes about 30 days just to get your bank statement.Then you have to remember which credit card you used while your guarantee is already expired.

Why you should never use a debit card or your bank account to make a purchase on the Internet

The problem with using a debit card is that a thief or dishonest marketer who gets your debit card number can steal thousands of dollars out of your checking or savings account with illegal purchases before you catch them. Then, who will help you recover your money once it is stolen? Call the police? The police will probably tell you to call the FBI or to see a lawyer. Do you really need to make your life so complicated and difficult? I know of people who have lost not just hundreds but thousands of dollars by using a debit card or by using their bank account number on the Internet.

Why a credit card or paypal are the only monetary instruments you should use on the Internet.

For most credit card companies, if you question an unauthorized purchase and offer a plausible explanation that fraud was involved in the use of your credit card, they will remove the charges from your account. Make sure you return the product to the sender with delivery confirmation and require a signature as proof of delivery, or, if you did not receive the product at all, the company must offer proof of delivery.

Your safest choice - a prepaid credit card for Internet purchases

If you want to be really safe, pay a hundred dollars, more or less, for a prepaid credit card from your local drug store or check cashing place. In the event someone scams you, you limit the damage to the amount you placed on the prepaid credit card. Your checking or savings account that could have a substantial amount of money in it is not affected. It is better to be safe than sorry.

Two more bits of Advice - Never link your savings account to your checking account to cover overdrafts

The reason is obvious. If someone steals your checking account, they can keep writing checks and making purchases as long as money flows from your savings into your checking to cover the overdrafts, and if that someone is on the other side of the earth, what are you going to do about it? So never link your accounts together. While banks make billions of dollars each year with overdraft fees, thieves steal billions of dollars more with stolen credit cards, debit cards and bank account numbers.

Also, if your have several thousand dollars on deposit, you might want to keep your checking account in one bank and the savings account in a second bank, and, of course, DO NOT ask for overdraft protection linking the two.

Newsletter Investment Teasers and Scams - always check with the BBB (Better Business Bureau before buying)

Recently, one publishing group called Stansberry research came to my attention after I received an email ad from them where they made one unsubstantiated claim after another. A Google search on the Internet with the terms "stansberry research" and "Better Business Bureau" yielded several results. The search found links to the hometown of Stansberry research that stated: This business is not BBB accredited." Another article claimed that there were over 70 complaints filed with the BBB in Baltimore MD about Stansberry Research. One article about the founder, Porter Stansberry, reported on his legal problems with the SEC. The article raises several questions about his marketing practices. As the time worn phrase "Caveat Emptor" indicates - Let the Buyer Beware.

A Message sent to the White House stating 10 Reasons why I recently unsubscribed from their email list

by Conrad LeBeau

To whom it may concern:
I now longer wish to receive any further emails from the White House for all the following reasons.
1. Pres. Trump keeps the two warmongers, John Bolton and Mike Pompeo in his cabinet and takes their advice on international bullying with an eye for military intervention and regime change in several countries.
2. The President failed to publicly reprimand the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia whose hands are bloody with the butchering of the news reporter Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi embassy in Turkey. The White House continues to do business as usual with Saudi Arabia.
3. He continues to support the brutal Saudi campaign in Yemen that has killed thousands of innocent civilians, although disapproved by Congress.
4. He listens to Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel about the "evil" Iran while the real enemies are ignored - radical Sunni extremists (Al-Qaeda and ISIS) that are supported by Saudi Arabia. [by comparison, the Iranian Shiites are peaceful. ]
5. He started this unnecessary fight with Iran by placing extreme sanctions that have adversely created hard times for the Iranian people.
6. By imposing sanctions on Iran, Venezuela, and Cuba, he has created more human suffering with no end game plan for peace andprosperity. He follows the militant advice of Bolton and Pompeo for regime change by provoking unnecessary conflicts that could lead to war.
7. Recently, he has enraged millions of health conscious Americans who don't trust GMO foods, especially the cancer causing corn and soybeans from Monsanto, by signing an Executive Order to completely remove regulations that were already watered down on the safety of GMO plants and animals.
8.  He has issued another Exec. Order promoting the widespread use of the G5 high frequency wireless transmissions without even a mention of the lack of long term safety studies, the role of G4 microwaves in causing brain cancer by users of cell phones, and further supports violating the Constitutional rights of the people not to have this unproven technology forced down their throats.
9. Pres. Trumps recent public statement telling the public to get vaccinated did not go over well with millions of Americans. What happened to his commitment to Robert Kennedy Jr. at the onset of his presidency to critically evaluate the link between vaccines and Autism?
10. His ill-fated long-term ongoing tariff war with China is causing nearly a hundred farmers a day to lose their property and livlihood through foreclosure auctions.
     For all the foregoing reasons, and as an independent voter, I will not support the re-election of President Trump in 2020. Conrad LeBeau

April 8 Update

Aluminum in Vaccines Blamed for Autism

---

Conrad LeBeau
            The latest issue of the Keep Hope Alive Journal is in the printers. A pdf version of the complete newsletter is now posted here. An excerpt of the beginning of the newsletter starts here-

"An article by J.B. Handley dated April 2, 2018 was recently brought to my attention. The article is well researched and documented. J.B. Handley is the proud father of a son who has Autism. He and his wife co-founded Generation Rescue, a national autism charity in 2005. His first book “How to End the Autism Epidemic” was published in 2018. The author cites several autopsies of patients who died with Autism that showed very high levels of aluminum in the brain."


"This concentration of aluminum is blamed for an activation of interleukin 6 – an inflammatory cytokine. The aluminum is used in the vaccine stimulatse a stronger immune antibody response. Unfortunately, in a number of cases it also creates a permanent level of inflammation that can cause pain in the brain, interfere with speech and cause brain swelling. The book is available at amazon.com".


" There are many books on the controversial subject of the safety or lack of safety concerning FDA approved vaccines. The following list are from the U.S government own files that finds that aluminum compounds are listed in 24 of 58 vaccines. Ten vaccines have aluminum hydroxide in them. Ten also have glutamates in them. Aluminum hydroxide is named by J.B. Handley in his research writings as an adjuvant that is considered a prime suspect in Autism causation. Most of his writings and research can be found online here."
     The following article contains excerpts from a pdf file that comes directly from the CDC website at https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/pubs/pinkbook/downloads/appendices/B/excipient-table-2.pdf
     [The FDA and CDC files basically whitewash the adverse effects of vaccine ingredients for public consumption.]

Vaccine Ingredients

            "In addition to weakened or killed disease antigens (viruses or bacteria), vaccines contain small amounts of other ingredients – excipients or media. Some excipients are added to a vaccine for a specific purpose. They include:
            Preservatives - For example, thimerosal (a source of mercury)

Aluminum, Adjuvants and IL-6

            "J.B.Handley explains on his blog that as aluminum concentrates in the brain, it triggers a permanent inflammatory response from an immune protein called interleukin 6 (Il-6) that normally is sent to damaged areas of the body as an immune response against germs, viruses, damaged tissue, and to bring white blood cells to help with the healing process. Handley explains how many of the symptoms of Autism are directly related to the inflammation caused by the aluminum in the brain.

March 1 Update

The Peoples Pharmacy
Reports on the Use of Vitamin D3 as a Rat Poison reaches 150,000 readers

Conrad LeBeau
On Jan 31, the peoplespharmacy.com, a website claiming to have 150,000 readers on their email list answered a question from one reader who asked whether vitamin D3 was being sold as a rodenticide. An article by Joe Graidon posted on Jan 28, 2019 indicated they checked on the active ingredient in D-Con, a common rat poison and found it contained cholecalciferol (synthetic D3). Graedon stated (in part) the following:

"Vitamin D3 is one of the most popular vitamins in the pharmacy these days. That’s because a lot of people are low in vitamin D. Vitamin D3 is often considered to be the best supplement to replenish low nutrient levels. But did you know that too much vitamin D3 can pose problems? Until we received this question, we had not realized vitamin D3 had been used as a mouse and rat poison!"

"Vitamin D3 as a Mouse and Rat Poison. Cholecalciferol (vitamin D3) has been used for decades. It is considered a safe dietary supplement for humans. At high doses this hormone causes blood calcium to rise to toxic levels. This in turn leads to kidney damage, bleeding and heart problems. This mouse and rat poison is also toxic to pets and must be kept well out of their reach.

Some Comments To the People's Pharmacy article include the following-

Kass in N.J. attributes her pain to vitamin D3:

"I have started taking D3 for the past week. I have increased pain in my legs and knees and my feet have swelled up. the fatigue is awful. Today I stopped taking it and hopefully in a few days I will have less pain. Who would think a vitamin would do this?"

Eliza in South Australia shared a somewhat similar reaction to a BIG dose:

"I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s a decade ago; my then doc prescribed 100,000iU of vit D (in oil) per week after test results. (47nmol/L when the desirable range of 60-160). Soon after taking the first dose, my calves cramped up badly during a regular beach walk and stayed painful. Neither the doc nor the compounding pharmacy could explain it at the time.”

Nancy B from MO writes:

"Many of the side effects of unopposed vitamin D3 come because it can cause an exacerbation of already existing vitamin K2-7. Large doses of vitamin D can cause all kinds of calcium related side effects as the calcium cannot be deposited in the bones without the vitamin k2 transport system. Thus, people end up with calcium in the soft tissues, including the arteries."

My comments that were published Online stated in part-

"I have learned from research published at the Weston A Price FDN that (synthetic) vitamin D3 sold as a dietary supplement is missing a sulfate molecule that occurs naturally when UVB rays for the sun interact with cholesterol sulfate in the skin to begin the process of making pre vitamin D that is modified in the liver and finalized in the kidneys. I have quit vitamin D3 completely and get my natural vitamin D from fermented Cod liver oil. I also expose my skin to sunshine and indoor tanning beds to produce natural vitamin D the way nature intended." 

"After several months of making these changes last year, all my leg and knee pain is gone and my blood pressure is down. My energy level is way up and I sleep much better. To reverse the damage caused by calcification to my blood vessels, I take natural vitamin K2 – 100 mcg daily. Published studies shows that K2 given to lab rats took 3 years to completely clear the calcium buildup caused by D3. Vitamin K2 is a life saver and an antidote for D3 toxicity."

Conrad LeBeau

A Newsworthy Observation. Swansons Health Products, a mail order and online dietary supplement company, had Vitamin D prominently displayed on the front page of their catalog a few months ago. In the most recent issue, vitamin D(3) has been demoted to page 65 and is in regular print. On the next page is a large display ad promoting the benefits of Cod Liver Oil. Now for the front page of their most recent catalog is a new product combining COQ10 with Vitamin K2 for promoting heart and circulatory health. WOW! I can't help but think the word on the dangers of synthetic D3 have reached one of the largest dietary supplement companies in the United States. We will see if other dietary supplement companies will follow the trend away from synthetic vitamin D and to its natural alternatives.

Feb 5th update

Wells Fargo pays $575 million to settle probes.

A small article buried deep inside the Milwaukee Journal on Dec 29, 2018 reports that this settlement was with attorney generals from all 50 states and the District of Columbia. This settlement resulted from an investigation that started in 2015 when Wells Fargo acknowledged that employees had opened millions of fake bank accounts with bank customers without their knowledge to advance sales goals. The alleged benefits to Well Fargo were not explained in the article, perhaps also hidden in secret banking regulations.

A google search using the terms "Well Fargo" and "fines" produces several more instances where Well Fargo got caught with its fingers in the cookie jar. For more information on how the big banks are scamming the public, read my book on Money Creation - from the Knights Templars to Wall St Bankers by Conrad LeBeau.


Long- term Health Effects of 5-G wireless electromagnetic energy used for high speed internet access are unknown. Adverse health effects of 2G, 3G and 4G in animal studies include oxidative stress, DNA damage and cancer.

5 G wireless telecommunications expansion: Public health and environmental implications.

An Abstract by Russell, CL.

"The popularity, widespread use and increasing dependency on wireless technologies has spawned a telecommunications industrial revolution with increasing public exposure to broader and higher frequencies of the electromagnetic spectrum to transmit data through a variety of devices and infrastructure. On the horizon, a new generation of even shorter high frequency 5G wavelengths is being proposed to power the Internet of Things (IoT).

"The IoT promises us convenient and easy lifestyles with a massive 5G interconnected telecommunications network, however, the expansion of broadband with shorter wavelength radiofrequency radiation highlights the concern that health and safety issues remain unknown.

"Controversy continues with regards to harm from current 2G, 3G and 4G wireless technologies. 5G technologies are far less studied for human or environmental effects. It is argued that the addition of this added high frequency 5G radiation to an already complex mix of lower frequencies, will contribute to a negative public health outcome both from both physical and mental health perspectives. Radiofrequency radiation (RF) is increasingly being recognized as a new form of environmental pollution.

"Like other common toxic exposures, the effects of radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation (RF EMR) will be problematic if not impossible to sort out epidemiologically as there no longer remains an unexposed control group. This is especially important considering these effects are likely magnified by synergistic toxic exposures and other common health risk behaviors. Effects can also be non-linear.

"Because this is the first generation to have cradle-to-grave lifespan exposure to this level of man-made microwave (RF EMR) radiofrequencies, it will be years or decades before the true health consequences are known. Precaution in the roll out of this new technology is strongly indicated. This article will review relevant electromagnetic frequencies, exposure standards and current scientific literature on the health implications of 2G, 3G, 4G exposure, including some of the available literature on 5G frequencies.

"The question of what constitutes a public health issue will be raised, as well as the need for a precautionary approach in advancing new wireless technologies."

    First Monthly Message of 2019 from the Mother of Jesus

    (Our Lady of Medjugorje to the visionary Mirjana)

     

      January 02, 2019
                "Dear children, sadly, among you, my children, there is so much battle, hatred, personal interests and selfishness. My children, so easily you forget my Son, His words, His love. Faith is being extinguished in many souls, and hearts are being grasped by material things of the world…..
    _______But my motherly heart knows that there are still those who believe and love, who are seeking how to draw all the closer to my Son, who are tirelessly seeking my Son - then, in this way, they are also seeking me. These are the humble and the meek with their pain and suffering, which they carry in silence with their hopes and, above all, with their faith. These are the apostles of my love…..
    _______My children, apostles of my love, I am teaching you that my Son is not only asking for continuous prayers, but also for works and feelings - that you believe, that you pray, that with your personal prayers you grow in faith, that you grow in love. To love each other is what He asks for - that is the way to eternal life…
    _______My children, do not forget that my Son brought the light to this world, and He brought it to those who wanted to see it and receive it. You be those, because this is the light of truth, peace and love. I am leading you in a motherly way to adore my Son; that you love my Son with me; that your thoughts, words and actions may be directed to My Son - that they may be in His name. Then my heart will be fulfilled. Thank you."

    Dec 7, 2018 Update

    FDA recalls 8 brands of Dog food due to vitamin D toxicity

    The FDA has received a number of complaints that their pet dogs were showing symptoms of vitamin D toxicity. The problem is the use of synthetic vitamin D3 - specifically cholecalciferol. - an ingredient used in at least 2 nationally marketed rodenticides (D-Con and Terad3). The FDA now needs to protect people from calcification of their lungs, arteries and kidney failure due to this defective form of vitamin D. It is time the US Public Health Service, the CDC and the FDA re-examine their long standing opposition to sunlight exposure and recommend an ancient remedy - fermented cod liver oil as a time proven safe source of both natural vitamin A and D along with DHA and EPA, both proven to help cardiovascular health. The following article is a reprint of the FDA statement on this issue.

    FDA Alerts Pet Owners about Potentially Toxic Levels of Vitamin D in Several Dry Pet Foods

    December 3, 2018

    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is investigating the presence of elevated, potentially toxic levels of vitamin D in several dry pet foods.

    Fast Facts

    Back to the top

    What is the Problem?

    The FDA has become aware of reports of vitamin D toxicity in dogs that ate dry dog food common contract manufacturer and marketed under several different brand names. This is a developing situation, and the FDA will update this page with additional information as it becomes available.

    What are the Symptoms of Vitamin D Toxicity?

    Excess vitamin D in the diet can cause vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst, increased urination, excessive drooling and weight loss. Vitamin D at toxic levels can cause kidney failure and death. Pet owners whose dogs have been eating the recalled brands and are showing these symptoms should contact their veterinarians.

    Back to the top

    What Brands Have Been Recalled?

    This is a developing situation and this list may not be complete. The FDA will update this list as more information becomes available.

    The list of recalled dry dog food products provided to the FDA include:

    The recalled products were sold nationwide.

    Back to the top

    What is FDA doing to address the situation?

    After receiving complaints from pet owners about dogs with vitamin D toxicity, one of the firms reported to the FDA that it was recalling dry pet food due to potentially toxic levels of vitamin D. Many other brands with a common contract manufacturer have also been recalled. The FDA is working with the contract manufacturer to provide a comprehensive list of affected brands.

    FDA scientists are still analyzing reports and the information currently available to determine whether the illnesses are definitively connected to diet.

    FDA scientists have evaluated samples of some of these products, and State and private lab test results indicate that the food contained as much as approximately 70 times the intended amount of vitamin D. Consuming food with such high levels of vitamin D is potentially toxic to dogs and in severe cases may lead to kidney failure and/or death.

    Nov 3, 2018 Update

    My Letter below replies to an article in Naturalnews.com predicting a recession

    Greetings to Lance Johnson,
    I like your article except for this one incorrect statement that the Federal Reserve is pumping billions of dollars into the economy. No, that was when the Federal Reserve Boar was under Chairman Ben Bernanke's leadership. Following the freeze in the credit market in 2008. Ben Bernanke and his fellow Board members reduced interest rates to near zero and also purchased around 4 trillion dollars worth of government bonds. The purchases were made with Fed money (bookkeeping entries) that were created with the stroke of a pen. It was called quantitative easing or QE.

    It brought stable prices and interest income to the US Treasury of about 150 billion per year as the Federal Reserve  returned the interest it collects on bonds it owns back to the US Treasury. The unemployment rate has also fallen to historic lows. The stock market reached meteoric heights. What is there to complain about? Success?

    However, the critics of QE are mainly the Wall St bankers who use their mouth pieces in the establishment news media to demonize a successful Federal Reserve policy under Ben Bernanke. Now, today, we have the opposite of QE, it is QR that stand for Quantitative Restricting. Under QR1, QR2, QR3 and QR4, interest rates are rising dramatically and soon these rising interest rates will induce a cost-push inflation on the whole economy that the Wall St bankers talking heads in the media will blame on an over heated economy.

    Be careful what you wish for - under QR1, 2, 3 and 4, a contraction the US and world economy is now underway. Just look at how credit card companies have jacked up the interest rates they charge their customers in the past 6 months. Some are as high as 30%. The Fed increased interest rates 2% and the credit card companies raised their rates by10%. Greed is never fair.

    Other News - D-Con

    - a common rodenticide lists "cholecalciferol" as the active ingredient on its packaging. That explains what the D stands for in D- Con - you guessed it - Vitamin D3 - the same as Terad3, is another vitamin D3 rodenticide

    - the conclusion -VItamin D 3 is one powerful rat poison.

    Cholecalciferol is synthetic vitamin D3. D-Con is one of the most widely used mice and rat poisons on the market. It is sold worldwide. I accidentally discovered D-Con's secret ingredient when I recently looked at a box of the rodent killer and was surprised to see cholecalciferol (vitamin D3) listed on the label as the active ingredient. The label's active ingredient was hard to read as they used light red lettering on a black ground. It took the help of a flashlight and a magnifying glass to make this stunning discovery. It almost seems like whoever designed the label wanted to hide the true name of its active ingredient.

    If the word gets out that rat poison is now part of your one a day vitamin supplements and is also in hundreds of food products from milk to orange juice to hundred of dietary supplements, it should cause anyone who wants to have a healthier life style to jettison this supplement. You can't kill rats with sunshine, indoor tanning beds or cod liver oil. It is a fact that you are more than 200 times more like to have a stroke or kidney failure using vitamin D3 and you are to develop skin cancer from sun exposure or using indoor tanning beds. Synthetic vitamin D3 is made from lanolin has a defective molecular structure. The so called experts got this one wrong. It is missing the sulfate molecule. This is a major national scandal.

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: October 11, 2018 Contact: Press@paul.senate.gov, 202-224-4343 WASHINGTON, D.C. –

    Today, U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) introduced legislation to cut off U.S. military aid and assistance to Saudi Arabia until U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo determines that missing American resident and Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Khashoggi is alive and free.

    “Time and again, clear evidence has proven that sending American taxpayer support to Saudi Arabia is not in our national security interest and instead helps further destabilize the Middle East.

    My bill gives Congress another chance to take a stand,” said Dr. Paul. Khashoggi was last seen alive entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, on October 2, 2018, where Turkish authorities believe he was murdered.

    The legislation marks the latest effort by Dr. Paul to prevent U.S. taxpayers’ support from going to a nation that has supported terrorists around the world, has a poor record on human rights, and has used questionable tactics in a war in Yemen that has left thousands of civilians dead and millions of Yemenis on the edge of famine.

    Using special procedures authorized by the Arms Export Control Act of 1976, Dr. Paul has previously led multiple, bipartisan efforts to block U.S. arms sales to Saudi Arabia and forced Senate votes on the issue in September 2016 and June 2017.

    You can read Dr. Paul’s entire bill stopping aid to Saudi Arabia below:

    To prohibit military aid to Saudi Arabia until the Secretary of State determines that Jamal Khashoggi is alive and free.

    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

    Section 1. Restriction on Military Aid to Saudi Arabia The United States Government shall not provide any military aid or assistance to the Government of Saudi Arabia until the Secretary of State certifies to Congress that journalist Jamal Khashoggi is alive and free and subsequent legislation is enacted authorizing the resumption of such aid and assistance.

    PLease read and pass this on to your elected Congressmen and Senators.


    October 1 update

    The latest issue of the Keep Hope Alive Journal V16 N3 is now posted.. Summary: Synthetic Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) was registered as a rodenticide in 1984. Terad3 from Bell Laboratories is a rodent poison that uses solely as its active ingredient, synthetic vitamin D3 aka Cholecalciferol. According to company statements, Terad3's mode of action is "calcification of the rodents heart, lungs and other important organs which of course leads to death." A local case report - Sandy, a local senior citizen takes 5000 I.U. of vitamin D3 daily for 3 years on the advice of her cardiologist - the result is a stroke. Adverse effects of long term use of vitamin D3 - artery disease and weaker bones. My story by Conrad LeBeau- the result of taking vitamin D3 for 3 years at a range from 5000 to 10,000 i.u daily results in a trip to the Emergency Room of a local hospital. Cod Liver Oil as a source of natural Vitamin D. George Griffing MD states: "Mother was Right about Cod Liver Oil." Evaluating different brands of Cod Liver Oil. Traditional and Fermented Cod Liver oil. A word of caution: Some newer brands of cod liver oil are over-processed to improve flavor and this also removes most of the naturally occurring Vitamins A and D - these brands are often then spiked with synthetic vitamins A and D and should be avoided. Mary from Brooklyn update - still HIV negative for active virus and off of all HIV meds for over one year. printable version pdf

    A Local Case Report
    Stroke follows 3 years of taking high doses of Vitamin D3

    Breaking News- Vitamin D3 sold as Rat Poison

     

    Conrad LeBeau
    Waterford, WI. In July I met with Sandy and her husband whom I have known for several years. I was aware that Sandy had a stroke over one year ago in 2016. I was not aware that she had been taking high doses of vitamin D3 prior to the stroke.  I shared with her the last issue of this newsletter on the dangers of taking synthetic Vitamin D3 as reported by Dr. Stephanie Seneff.

    Sandy told me that for 3 years before she had the stroke that has left her speech impaired, she had taken 5000 i.u daily of vitamin D3 on the advice of her cardiologist. Sandy, like many of us, will believe an expert like her personal doctor. Today, with over 63000 published studies on vitamin D, the medical profession is as divided as ever on this subject.

    I asked Sandy if her doctor had also advised her to take vitamin K2 along with the vitamin D3 or to take vitamin A to prevent or minimize the adverse effects of high doses of synthetic D3. She said “No.” I explained that one of the adverse effects of D3 is calcification of the arteries. That side effect is not minor – calcification of the arteries can cause a stroke, a heart attack and death. Sandy asked: “what is synthetic vitamin D?”

    I told her that multiple sources state that synthetic vitamin D3 is made from lanolin that is extracted from sheep’s wool. In January 2018, the Townsend Letter for Doctors referred to both Vitamin D2 and D3 as synthetic as they are not directly derived from natural sources such as the mother’s milk or traditional sources such as cod liver oil. Natural vitamin D contains a sulfate molecule. For humans and other mammals on the earth, vitamin D has always been made by the uvb rays of the sun interacting with cholesterol sulfate in the skin. IT has been this way since time itself was invented, indeed from the dawn of creation. Study after scientific study has found that sunlight and also cod liver oil have protective effects against cardiovascular disease.

    Synthetic vitamin D does not contain the sulfate molecule. Studies in animals have shown that synthetic D3 has caused damage to the arteries of test animals. I also shared with her the discovery the molecular structure of natural vitamin D derived from sunlight interaction with cholesterol sulfate in the skin is different than the man-made versions of D2 and D3. The differences are significant and very important.

    Why Synthetic (fake) Vitamin D is not equal to Natural (real) Vitamin D?

    It is almost like comparing fake news to real news. The first problem with evaluating the scientific literature about vitamin D is making the classic mistake of comparing the synthetic to the natural forms as equals based on labels. Since the molecular structure of natural vitamin D has a sulfate molecule attached and the synthetic versions of vitamin D does not, they have different molecular structures. The synthetic forms need to be more critically evaluated.

    The main natural source of vitamin D is sunlight. Sunlight has consistently been shown to have cardio-protective effects  - lower blood pressure, and significantly fewer heart attacks and strokes. Sunlight exposure has consistently been shown to protect against breast cancer and many other forms of cancer.

    Adverse Effects of vitamin D3 include artery disease and weaker bones     

    Synthetic vitamin D given to swine in a controlled study has been shown to cause pathological damages to the thoracic aorta of the swine. The swine consumed a human equivalent of about 11000 i.u. vitamin D3 each day. (1) However, even a lower dose of 2200 i.u per day of D3 worsened atherosclerosis in swine on a high fat diet.

    Studies using vitamin D3 as a supplement found little difference in bone density between the treatment group and placebo. In one study, the group taking vitamin D3 had 6% fractures vs 5% in the control group. (2)

    Ref:
    1.Takagi T et al. Coronary atherosclerosis in swine induced by a mild dietary excess of (synthetic) vitamin D. Nutr. Rep Int. 1983;28:1111-1118

    2. Khaw KT et al. Effect of monthly high-dose (synthetic) vitamin D supplementation on falls and non-vertebral fractures:.. Lancet Diabetes Endocrinol 2017;5:438-447

    Synthetic Vitamin D3 was registered as a Rodenticide (rat poison) in 1984

       The comment in the Townsend Letter for Doctors that vitamin D3 was registered as a rodenticide in 1984 did not state the source of this jolting piece of information. However a search on the Internet turned up Terad3 Blox made by Bell Laboratories.

    At the belllabs.com website is this photo of the D3 rat poison. This is what the company says about their product:

    TERAD3 BLOX

    TERAD3 BLOX expertly combines the most recent advancements in bait formulation to yield a highly weatherable BLOX with the benefits of the active ingredient, Vitamin D3.
    “After years of researching the most effective formulation for housing this unique active ingredient, Bell scientists have found the perfect match - a denser, tightly compacted 1-oz. extruded BLOX with outstanding durability, palatability and weatherability.
    “TERAD3 BLOX with Vitamin D3 kills anticoagulant-resistant rats and mice. With BLOX, bait translocation is also reduced.”


    If anyone thinks that it is safe to consume high doses of vitamin D3 indefinitely, this photo and what Bell labs says about their D3 rat poison (rodenticide) should give anyone pause, especially a doctor. Is swallowing rat poison really a good idea? You can't kill rats with sunshine or cod liver oil.

    Safer Choices for Vitamin D

    1. Fermented Cod Liver Oil

    2. Sun tanning outdoors (Do not use sun tan lotion) 3 or more times a week up to 30 minutes or tanning indoors in a bed that gives off uvb light.

    3. Take a vitamin K2 capsule once or twice daily to prevent and reverse calcification of the arteries caused by the ingestion of vitamin D2 or D3.

    Do not buy Cod Liver that is over processed and to which synthetic D2 or D3 have been added. Call the manufacturer before purchasing to make sure all the A and D in the formula are natural occurring in the Cod Liver Oil and have not been spiked with synthetic vitamin D.

    End of Excerpts from the upcoming September newsletter. The full 6 page article on this subject will be published in September in the next Journal. Books where I have updated the latest information on vitamin D can be found here.

    Mary from Brooklyn HIV Update - When do you call it a Cure"?

    Conrad LeBeau
    July 27th 2018 - Mary called two days ago to share with me her latest lab results. All her blood work is normal. To have active HIV virus in her body, her doctor told her she needs to test positive on the HIV antibody test as well as on the Western Blot test. The Western Blot test has been replaced with a more sensitive test called the "Multispot Test" also called the "Confirmatory test." This test indicates the presence of active viral particles for HIV. 

    New: For the first time in 3 years, Mary has an email address so you can write her with your questions or comments. It is maryfrombrook@gmail.com

    The results of the latest July test are: HIV antibody (positive)

    Multispot test (Western Blot) -(negative)

    Conclusion from her Doctor: She no longer has any active HIV virus in her. PCR remains non-detectable and all blood parameters are within normal reference ranges. That includes the cd4/cd8 ratios. She also told her doctor that she has not taken any HIV drugs since last fall. This is the same doctor who said that she would have to take HIV meds for the rest of her life. Well she isn't and the most sophisticated test he has used can no longer find the virus.

    Editor"s Opinion on Mary's Unusual Protocol and Lab Results

    It is my opinion that without the raw garlic she consumed in 2015 along with everything else, "Mary" (a pen name to protect her identity) she would not have this good news to share with us today. Possibly, one or more of the many sulfur compounds in garlic holds the key to her success. I will have more to say about this in a future article.

    Re-evaluating her protocol, It is my opinion that No 1 is Raw Garlic at the top on the list as the most important item she used in her battle against HIV. I would put Complera as No 2 and Blackseed No 3 in overall importance. Everything else follows these three items except that her attitude, strong determination, and her faith in God embraces and empowers all her treatment choices. Conrad LeBeau

    Historical Background of Mary's Journey from HIV + to -

    (Jan 2015 to July 26, 2018)

    Mary from Brooklyn

    The following are excerpts from Vol 15 No 1 2017. 

    This report is about a female from NY. I will call her “Mary” not her real name. Although I had spoken to her several times starting in March 2015, here is what she told me in a phone call in 2015.

    1. Jan 2015 – exposed to HIV. Mary became infected in January 2015 after having had sex with her husband in an event that resulted in the breakage of a condom.

    2. February 2015, she tested positive on a standard HIV test for the virus. More testing found that her CD4 counts had dropped to around 340 while the CD8 count rose to 809. The CD4/CD8 ratio was 0.42. The viral load for HIV by PCR was 21000 in the February test. 

    3. March, 2015, Mary divorces her husband.

    4. Complera. Around March 11, the HIV drug Complera was prescribed by her physician. This was about 2 months after the original diagnosis of HIV+. The ingredients in Complera, its benefits and side effects, can be found at complera.com. The website states that Complera is not a cure for AIDS. However, Mary’s protocol involved more than using Complera.

    5. Black seed Powder. On March 19, she used a coffee grinder to grind 4 teaspoons of whole black seeds into a powder that she mixed with water and took this twice a day with meals for one month - then she reduced the dosage to two teaspoons twice a day. Her source of the whole black seeds was kevala.net. She stopped using black seed by December of 2015. Note: She told me in Feb 2017 that she ground the whole black seed and mixed them with water and drank them immediately. She did not use black seed powder in capsules and she did not use black seed oil. 

    6. Raw garlic. She ate 2 cloves of raw garlic 3 times a day with meals. She sliced them and placed on whole grain bread, crackers or on a salad. By Dec of 2015, she stopped her daily intake of raw garlic. 

    7. Beet juice. She also blended 2 whole raw beets with a quart of water and made a smoothie. She drank ½ cup of the raw beet juice smoothie each day beginning in March of 2015. By Dec of 2015, she stopped her daily intake of the raw beet juice. 

    8. Basic diet – lots of raw vegetables, some fish and chicken daily, but ate red meat and cheese only once a month.

    9. Prayed for a Cure – she said she recited about 50 prayers each day.

    Results: About 9 weeks later at the end of May, in 2015, she had new lab results and they were – CD4 counts 560. PCR viral load for HIV now undetectable. The CD8 dropped to 383 and the CD4/CD8 ratio returned to a normal reference range at 1.46. At the time, neither Mary nor her doctor realized the immunological significance of the CD4/CD8 ratio returning to a normal range. In June after reading about the importance of vitamin D at Keep Hope Alive, she asked her doctor to test her vitamin D levels. He did and they were low – below 30 ng/ml. He then prescribed 50,000 i.u. of vitamin D2 which she has taken once a week since the middle of June.

    Ukraine on Fire - produced by Oliver Stone

    For centuries, Ukraine has been at the center of a tug-of-war between powers seeking to control its rich lands and access to the Black Sea. 2014's Maidan Massacre triggered a bloody uprising that ousted president Viktor Yanukovych and painted Russia as the perpetrator by Western media. But was it? "Ukraine on Fire" by Igor Lopatonok - produced by Oliver Stove is a must see expose of U.S. State Dept and CIA interference in Ukraine's internal affairs.

    Update on the Civil War in Ukraine

    My reply today to an email from a member of moveon.org to sign a petition to President Trump.

    Rob, I cannot support your petition. This is media driven hysteria about Trump. I support President Trump's efforts to have a dialogue with the Russians, and the North Koreans and work together to solve world problems. Our democracy is under attack from within by Wall St bankers, drug companies and multi-national corporations, and the establishment news media. Russian interference in our election in 2016 was minimal and of little significance, except it did seek to undermine Hillary Clintons' campaign.

    Every country on earth will try to influence or interfere in
    another's countries elections if they can get away with it. Russia itself
    is a democracy. *Russia and Vladimir Putin are not our enemy. *The Ukraine
    civil war was started by wealthy oligarchs in Europe. The people in Crimea
    voted to succeed from Ukraine and join Russia. That is their right and we
    have no business interfering into their internal affairs. The western
    oligarchs staged this coup in Ukraine to take over the country and control
    its vast resources and people. They ousted Ukrainian President Viktor
    Yanukovych in 2014. Pres. Yanukovich was interviewed at https://www.rt.com/news/368557-yanukovich-court-witness-interview -

    *"Viktor Yanukovich, who was ousted as president of Ukraine in a violent armed coup, says history will not look kindly on those who ceased power in 2013, because they secured their authority by spilling innocent blood.
    Yanukovich, who currently lives in exile in Russia, spoke to RT after a Ukrainian court questioned him via telelink about his part in the Maidan protests, where over 100 people, both protesters and police officers, were
    killed. The legal proceedings come three years after a mass protest in Ukraine triggered monumental changes in global politics.

    With the help from the United States, the bankers in Brussels also want to overthrow the government in Russia and place a puppet in power who will allow them to take over the banking system, the oil, natural gas and all the
    other resources in the country. Western bankers don't like Russia because they won't buy their bonds. Russia mints and prints its own money and does not borrow bank credit from western bankers. Russia has no national debt. The country is debt-free - unlike the United States and most of the European Union.

    Wall St bankers, big drug companies and multi-national corporations invest millions of dollars each year to buy off politicians in both political parties. The western bankers who create money by making loans beyond their own customers deposits are the source of the problem. The bankers want to enslave people in Russia like they have enslaved the people of the European Union, and the United States with high interest bearing debt. Today the Russian people are free and happy.

    The following is an excerpt just received by email from the U.S. Hemp Roundtable.

    Great news!  The Senate Farm Bill just passed (June 28 2018)– and it includes ALL of the Hemp Farming Act, including the permanent legalization of hemp and products such as hemp-derived CBD.


    This is HUGE.  But the battle has not yet been won. And we need your help.

    A House/Senate conference committee will soon meet to resolve the differences between the Senate Farm Bill and the House Farm Bill, the latter which includes no hemp language.  Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will be leading the fight to ensure that the conference committee retains the hemp-friendly Senate language before it gets sent back to the House and Senate floors for final passage.

    Please help TODAY.

    We’ve revised our online portal to make it easy for you to contact both your Senators and your Congressman, to urge them to support the Senate Farm Bill’s hemp provisions.


    Please go there NOW and have your voice heard.  And as always, please share this portal with your friends, colleagues, customers and social media contacts.  Together, we can make permanent hemp legalization a reality.

    McConnell Secures Hemp Farming Act in Senate Farm Bill

    Bipartisan measure would legalize and clearly define hemp as an agricultural commodity and remove it from the list of controlled substances

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) was successful in securing the Hemp Farming Act of 2018 in the Senate Farm Bill, which was released today. Senator McConnell, a senior member of the Senate Agriculture Committee, worked with Committee Chairman Pat Roberts (R-KS), to ensure that his legislation to legalize industrial hemp was included in the farm policy bill. The Senate Agriculture Committee will officially consider the legislation on Wednesday, June 13

    Growing Kentucky’s economy

    with hemp

    April 20, 2018

    By Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell

    For far too long, the federal government has prevented most farmers from growing hemp. Although it was a foundational part of Kentucky’s heritage and today you can buy products made with hemp at stores across the country, most farmers have been barred from planting it in their fields. I have heard from many Kentucky farmers who agree it’s time to remove the federal hurdles in place and give our state the opportunity to seize its full potential and once again become the national leader for hemp production.

    That’s why I was proud to introduce legislation in the Senate to finally and fully legalize industrial hemp.

    In collaboration with agriculture leaders in Kentucky and throughout the nation, I utilized my position as Senate Majority Leader and as a senior member of the Senate Agriculture Committee to secure language in the 2014 Farm Bill to authorize hemp research pilot programs. I followed up with federal legislation to ensure that hemp produced from the pilot program could be transported, processed, and sold. Under the guidance of Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles and his predecessor, U.S. Representative James Comer (KY-1), these programs have allowed Kentucky farmers to both research the plant and to demonstrate its potential.

    Kentucky’s experience with the hemp pilot programs has produced strong results. Last year alone, the hemp pilot program yielded more than $16 million for Kentucky farmers. We’ve already seen remarkable innovation in everything from home insulation to concrete and from health products to beer. These hemp products are just the beginning.

    The time is right to take the next step with this new bipartisan legislation. My bill, which is cosponsored by Senator Rand Paul and the companion of which was introduced in the House by Congressman Comer, will benefit hemp farmers and manufacturers in four important ways.

    First, it will legalize industrial hemp as an agricultural commodity and remove it from the federal list of controlled substances. Although the 2014 Farm Bill allowed for hemp pilot programs, some farmers have still faced substantial disputes with some federal agencies. This bill will remove roadblocks and encourage the domestic growth and production of hemp.

    Next, the bill will allow the states to be the primary regulators of hemp farmers and manufacturers, if states can develop a proper plan. Under Commissioner Quarles’ oversight, Kentucky’s hemp industry can flourish.

    Third, this legislation will give hemp researchers the opportunity to apply for competitive federal grants from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Those critical research dollars can help spur further innovation and growth in this field.

    And finally, our plan will make hemp farmers eligible to apply for crop insurance, enabling them to build a steady business model on a level playing field with other crops.

    With these features, Kentucky can be at the forefront of hemp’s return to American agriculture, sparking opportunity for farmers and manufacturers in the process. In my time in the Senate, I’ve watched the evolution of the Commonwealth’s farm communities, and we are optimistic that industrial hemp can enhance the versatility and economic viability of Kentucky’s crops.

    In the past, the similarities in appearance between hemp and its illicit cousin have caused confusion. But because hemp only has negligible levels of THC, which is the compound which produces the ‘high’ associated with marijuana, the two plants are actually quite different. Because of recent research and education, this distinction has become clearer. This legislation only legalizes hemp with a THC concentration of 0.3 percent or less, far below the THC concentration in marijuana.

    A bipartisan coalition supports the expansion of industrial hemp, and I look forward to continuing to work with my partners in Washington and with Kentucky’s farmers to grow hemp’s bright future.

    By legalizing hemp and helping farmers, we can continue to see growth in new and innovative products made with Kentucky-grown hemp across our state and the nation. This is our chance to continue to help our agricultural economy and put more Kentucky-made products on the market. Kentucky’s farmers are some of the best in the world, and this legislation will give them the option to enjoy the full benefits of this versatile crop with a long and rich history in our Commonwealth.

    Mitch McConnell, a Kentucky Republican, is the Senate Majority Leader. He is the sponsor of the Hemp Farming Act of 2018 and previously sponsored the hemp pilot program in the 2014 Farm Bill.

    A Special Report on "Vitamin D3 Sulfate"

    A Game Changer - The vitamin D formed on the skin from exposure to UVB rays from the sun or a tanning bed produces "Vitamin D3 Sulfate," a form that is different and has far more health benefits than vitamin D3 (or D2)

    C. LeBeau.

    For years I have had personal doubts that the vitamin D3 in capsule form had the same health benefits as the vitamin D produced by sunlight or ultraviolet light from a sun tanning bed. One example - I have long observed that vitamin D capsules did not improve my quality of sleep whereas sunlight and tanning beds did, and that is just the tip of the iceberg. The research and paradigm by Dr Seneff on how sunlight on the skin produces vitamin D3 sulfate is truly a game changer. You cannot buy vitamin D3 sulfate in pill form. It must be produced by the effects of UVB rays reaching your skin. Dr Seneff explains the process in the following articles.

    An article I saved on my computer from 2011 strengthens my own theory that vitamin D3 as a supplement does not replace the sulfated form of vitamin D that you get directly from sunlight or from ultraviolet light in a tanning bed. In fact, Dr Seneff turns the existing paradigm about vitamin D, sunlight, cholesterol and the immune system on its head. This article is a game changer and the implications are profound that the use of statin drugs or relying on vitamin D pills alone as a substitute for sunlight may short change you out of the many benefits from raising your blood serum levels of vitamin D. Even more alarming, Vitamin D2 or D3 in high doses may even contribute to hardening of the arteries when used long term.

    IS THE SKIN A SOLAR-POWERED BATTERY FOR THE HEART?

    An article by Dr. Seneff published by the Weston A Price Fdn

    Dr. Seneff:

    "The evidence is quite compelling that sunny places afford protection from heart disease. A study described in a 1996 issue of QJ Med. provides an in-depth analysis of data from around the world showing an inverse relationship between heart disease rates and a sunny climate and a low latitude. For instance, the cardiovascular-related death rate for men between the ages of 55 and 64 was 761 per 100,000 men in Belfast, Northern Ireland, but only 175 in Toulouse, France. While the obvious biological factor that would be affected by sunlight is vitamin D, studies conducted specifically on vitamin D status have been inconclusive, with some even showing a significant increased risk for heart disease with increased intake of vitamin D2 supplements.

    "I believe, first of all, that the distinction between vitamin D3 and vitamin D3 sulfate really matters, and also that the distinction between vitamin D2 and vitamin D3 really matters. Vitamin D2 is the plant form of the vitamin. It works similarly to D3 with respect to calcium transport, but it cannot be sulfated. Furthermore, apparently the body is unable to produce vitamin D3 sulfate directly from unsulfated vitamin D3  (which implies that it produces vitamin D3 sulfate directly from cholesterol sulfate). I am not aware of any other food source besides raw milk that contains vitamin D3 in the sulfated form. So, when studies monitor either vitamin D supplements or vitamin D serum levels, they’re not getting at the crucial aspect for heart protection, which I think is the serum level of vitamin D3 sulfate.

    "Furthermore, I believe it is extremely likely that vitamin D3 sulfate is not the only thing that’s affected by greater sun exposure, and maybe not even the most important thing. Given that cholesterol sulfate and vitamin D3 sulfate are very similar in molecular structure, I would imagine that both molecules are produced the same way. And since vitamin D3 sulfate synthesis requires sun exposure, I suspect that cholesterol sulfate synthesis may also exploit the sun’s radiation energy.

    "Both cholesterol and sulfur afford protection in the skin from radiation damage to the cell’s DNA, the kind of damage that can lead to skin cancer. Cholesterol and sulfur become oxidized upon exposure to the high frequency rays in sunlight, thus acting as antioxidants to “take the heat,” so to speak. Oxidation of cholesterol is the first step in the process by which cholesterol transforms itself into vitamin D3. Sulfur dioxide in the air is converted non-enzymatically to the sulfate ion upon sun exposure. This is the process that produces acid rain.

    "The oxidation of sulfide (S-2) to sulfate (SO4-2), a strongly endothermic reaction15, converts the sun’s energy into chemical energy contained in the sulfur-oxygen bonds, while simultaneously picking up four oxygen molecules. Attaching the sulfate ion to cholesterol or vitamin D3is an ingenious step, because it makes these molecules water-soluble and therefore easily transportable through the blood stream.

    "Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is consistently found in the blood stream in small amounts. As a gas, it can diffuse into the air from capillaries close to the skin’s surface. So it is conceivable that we rely on bacteria in the skin to convert sulfide to sulfate. It would not be the first time that humans have struck up a symbiotic relationship with bacteria. If this is true, then washing the skin with antibiotic soap is a bad idea. Photo-trophic bacteria, such as Chlorobium tepidum, that can convert H2S to H2SO4 exist in nature39,36, for example in sulfur hot springs in Yellowstone Park. These highly specialized bacteria can convert the light energy from the sun into chemical energy in the sulfate ion.

    "Another possibility is that we have specialized cells in the skin, possibly the keratinocytes, that are able to exploit sunlight to convert sulfide to sulfate, using a similar photo trophic mechanism to C. tepidum. This seems quite plausible, especially considering that both human keratinocytes and C. tepidum can synthesize an interesting UV-B absorbing cofactor, tetrahydrobioptin. This cofactor is found universally in mammalian cells, and one of its roles is to regulate the synthesis of melanin, the skin pigment that is associated with a tan and protects the skin from damage by UV-light exposure.9 However, tetrahydrobiopsin is very rare in the bacterial kingdom, and C. tepidum is one of the very few bacteria that can synthesize it.

    "Let me summarize at this point where I’m on solid ground and where I’m speculating. It is undisputed that the skin synthesizes cholesterol sulfate in large amounts, and it has been suggested that the skin is the major supplier of cholesterol sulfate to the blood stream. The skin also synthesizes vitamin D3 sulfate upon exposure to sunlight. Vitamin D3 is synthesized from cholesterol, with oxysterols (created from sun exposure) as an intermediate step (oxysterols are forms of cholesterol with hydroxyl groups attached at various places in the carbon chain). The body can’t synthesize vitamin D3 sulfate from vitamin D3 so it must be that sulfation happens first, producing cholesterol sulfate or hydroxy-cholesterol sulfate, which is then optionally converted to vitamin D3 sulfate or shipped out “as is.”


    "Another highly significant feature of skin cells is that the skin stores sulfate ions attached to molecules that are universally present in the intracellular matrix, such as heparin sulfate, chondroitin sulfate, and keratin sulfate. Furthermore, it has been shown that exposure of the melanin-producing cells (melanocytes) to molecules containing reduced sulfur (-2) leads to suppression of melanin synthesis, whereas exposure to molecules like chondroitin sulfate that contain oxidized sulfur (+6) leads to enhancement of melanin synthesis.

    "Melanin is a potent UV-light absorber, and it would compete with reduced sulfur for the opportunity to become oxidized. It is therefore logical that, when sulfur is reduced, melanin synthesis should be suppressed, so that sulfur can absorb the solar energy and convert it to very useful chemical bonds in the sulfate ion.

    "The sulfate would eventually be converted back to sulfide by a muscle cell in the heart or a skeletal muscle (simultaneously recovering the energy to fuel the cell and unlocking the oxygen to support aerobic metabolism of glucose), and the cycle would continually repeat.

    "Why am I spending so much time talking about all of this? Well, if I’m right, then the skin can be viewed as a solar-powered battery for the heart, and that is a remarkable concept. The energy in sunlight is converted into chemical energy in the oxygen-sulfur bonds, and then transported through the blood vessels to the heart and skeletal muscles. The cholesterol sulfate and vitamin D3-sufate are carriers that deliver the energy (and the oxygen) “door-to-door” to the individual heart and skeletal muscle cells.

    "Today’s lifestyle, especially in America, severely stresses this system. First of all, most Americans believe that any food containing cholesterol is unhealthy, so the diet is extremely low in cholesterol. Eggs are an excellent source of sulfur, but because of their high cholesterol content we have been advised to eat them sparingly. Second, as I discussed previously, natural food plant sources of sulfur are likely to be deficient due to sulfur depletion in the soil. Third, water softeners remove sulfur from our water supply, which would otherwise be a good source. Fourth, we have been discouraged from eating too much red meat, an excellent source of sulfur-containing amino acids. Finally, we have been instructed by doctors and other authoritarian sources to stay out of the sun and wear high SPF sunscreen whenever we do get sun exposure.

    "Another significant contributor is the high carbohydrate, low-fat diet, which leads to excess glucose in the blood stream, which glycates LDL particles and renders them ineffective in delivering cholesterol to the tissues. One of those tissues is the skin, so skin becomes further depleted in cholesterol due to glycation damage to LDL.

    Dr Seneff's Statement on Vitamin D3 Sulfate as published by Dr Mercola.

    Story at-a-glance (from mercola.com)

    Sulfur deficiency is common, and may be a contributing factor in obesity, heart disease, Alzheimer's and other chronic health conditions
    1. Sulfur, cholesterol, and vitamin D produced in your skin as a result of sun exposure, are all intricately connected and necessary for optimal health, particularly heart health
    2. When exposed to sunshine, your skin produces two types of sulfur: cholesterol sulfate, and vitamin D3 sulfate.

    It is believed that vitamin D3 from oral supplements, which is unsulfated, cannot be converted to D3 sulfate, and may therefore not have the identical health benefits as the vitamin D your skin synthesizes.

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff is a senior scientist at MIT and has been conducting research there for over three decades. However, she also has an undergraduate degree in biology from MIT, and a minor in food and nutrition. She's affiliated with the Weston A. Price Foundation and will be speaking at their November Dallas conference, and so will I. Dr. Seneff has a wealth of information in an area that many are not very knowledgeable about, and that is the importance of sulfur.
    Sulfur deficiency is pervasive, and may be a contributing factor in:

    1. Obesity
    2. Heart disease
    3. Alzheimer's disease
    4. Chronic fatigue
    5. And more

    She also believes conventional medicine is seriously confused about cholesterol, which is closely interrelated with sulfur. Furthermore, healthy cholesterol and sulfur levels are also highly dependent on your vitamin D levels! Here, she discusses the importance and the intricate relationships among these three factors.

    Heart Disease May be a Cholesterol Deficiency Problem

    Considering the fact that conventional medicine has been telling us that heart disease is due to elevated cholesterol and recommends lowering cholesterol levels as much as possible, Dr. Seneff claims may come as a complete shock:
    "Heart disease, I think, is a cholesterol deficiency problem, and in particular a cholesterol sulfate deficiency problem..."

    She points out that all of this information is available in the research literature, but it requires putting all the pieces together to see the full picture. Through her research, she believes that the mechanism we call "cardiovascular disease," of which arterial plaque is a hallmark, is actually your body's way to compensate for not having enough cholesterol sulfate.
    She explains:

    "The macrophages in the plaque take up LDL, the small dense LDL particles that have been damaged by sugar... The liver cannot take them back because the receptor can't receive them, because they are gummed with sugar basically. So they're stuck floating in your body... Those macrophages in the plaque do a heroic job in taking that gummed up LDL out of the blood circulation, carefully extracting the cholesterol from it to save it – the cholesterol is important – and then exporting the cholesterol into HDL – HDL A1 in particular... That's the good guy, HDL.

    The platelets in the plaque take in HDL A1 cholesterol and they won't take anything else... They take in sulfate, and they produce cholesterol sulfate in the plaque. The sulfate actually comes from homocysteine. Elevated homocysteine is another risk factor for heart disease. Homocysteine is a source of sulfate. It also involves hemoglobin. You have to consume energy to produce a sulfate from homocysteine, and the red blood cells actually supply the ATP to the plaque.

    So everything is there and the intent is to produce cholesterol sulfate and it's done in the arteries feeding the heart, because it's the heart that needs the cholesterol sulfate. If [cholesterol sulfate is not produced]... you end up with heart failure."

    So, in a nutshell, high LDL appears to be a sign of cholesterol sulfate deficiency—it's your body's way of trying to maintain the correct balance by taking damaged LDL and turning it into plaque, within which the blood platelets produce the cholesterol sulfate your heart and brain needs for optimal function... What this also means is that when you artificially lower your cholesterol with a statin drug, which effectively reduces that plaque but doesn't address the root problem, your body is not able to compensate any longer, and as a result of lack of cholesterol sulfate you may end up with heart failure.

    How Sun Exposure Impacts Your Sulfur Status

    According to the conventional view, high LDL is correlated with heart disease, so the idea is that you can take a statin drug to artificially reduce the LDL and you'll be fine. However, as Dr. Seneff explains, if you have high LDL, it's because your body probably needs it to produce cholesterol sulfate, which your heart requires for optimal function. Hence, when you simply remove the LDL, you also remove your body's "backup" mechanism to keep your heart as healthy as possible, and as a result you get heart failure.

    But high LDL is correlated with cardiovascular disease (please note that cardiovascular disease is an entirely different disease category from heart failure, which explains a lot of the confusion on this issue), so how can your body produce cholesterol sulfate without the harmful LDL?

    How is it produced under normal, healthy conditions

    This is where sun exposure enters the picture. When you expose your skin to sunshine, your skin synthesizes vitamin D3 sulfate. This form of vitamin D is water soluble, unlike oral vitamin D3 supplements, which is unsulfated. The water soluble form can travel freely in your blood stream, whereas the unsulfated form needs LDL (the so-called "bad" cholesterol) as a vehicle of transport.

    Her suspicion is that the simple oral non-sulfated form of vitamin D likely will not provide the same benefits as the vitamin D created in your skin from sun exposure, because it cannot be converted to vitamin D sulfate. This is yet another reason to really make a concerted effort to get ALL your vitamin D requirements from exposure to sunshine!

    "[S]ulfate actually inactivates vitamin D," Dr. Seneff says. "The sulfated form of vitamin D does not work for calcium transport, which I find very intriguing. And in fact, I think it's the sulfated form for vitamin D that offers the protection from cancer. It strengthens your immune system. It protects you from cardiovascular disease. It's good for your brain. It helps depression. I think all of those effects of vitamin D are effects of vitamin D sulfate."

    For those who are still under the mistaken impression that sun exposure is the primary cause of skin cancer, the following explanation may be of great help. In a Weston A. Price article on sulfur,
    Dr. Seneff states that:

    "Both cholesterol and sulfur afford protection in the skin from radiation damage to the cell's DNA, the kind of damage that can lead to skin cancer. Cholesterol and sulfur become oxidized upon exposure to the high frequency rays in sunlight, thus acting as antioxidants to "take the heat," so to speak. Oxidation of cholesterol is the first step in the process by which cholesterol transforms itself into vitamin D3."

    As I've stated before, your body was designed to be exposed to the rays of the sun, and your skin contains all the necessary mechanisms to extract or produce beneficial nutrients from it while simultaneously shielding itself from harm. When you circumvent this natural process, either by using sunblock or staying out of the sun entirely, you lose all the health benefits, and give a variety of disease processes free reign.

    The Many Roles of Sulfur

    Overall, sulfate appears to be a highly underestimated molecule with vast health implications. Dr. Seneff discusses her findings in great detail, but offers the following analogy:

    "[I]f you breakdown the sulfate you will release energy, which means that the sulfate is actually absorbing the energy from light... I think of the skin as a battery – or solar panel you might say – taking in the sun's energy and saving it in the form of the sulfate molecule storing the energy in the sun."

    It seems logical that humans would have some capacity to absorb energy from the sun directly, but this is the first time I've heard of a molecular explanation for this capacity!

    "I have a lot of thoughts about what sulfate does," Dr. Seneff says. "One thing I'm quite sure of is that cholesterol sulfate is highly protective against bacterial and virus invasions. That's why sun exposure protects you from infection. It strengthens your immune system. That cholesterol sulfate is incredibly important to immunity."

    Sulfur also plays a vital role in the structure and biological activity of both proteins and enzymes. If you don't have sufficient amounts of sulfur in your body, this deficiency can cascade into a number of health problems as it will affect bones, joints, connective tissues, metabolic processes, and more.
    Other areas where sulfur plays an important role include:

    1. Your body's electron transport system, as part of iron/sulfur proteins in mitochondria, the energy factories of your cells.

    2. Vitamin-B thiamine (B1) and biotin conversion, which in turn are essential for converting carbohydrates into energy

    3. Synthesizing important metabolic intermediates, such as glutathione

    4. Proper insulin function. The insulin molecule consists of two amino acid chains connected to each other by sulfur bridges, without which the insulin cannot perform its biological activity

    5. Detoxification

    Sulfate—Essential for Babies

    Cholesterol sulfate is also essential for babies in utero. A woman has about 1.5 units of cholesterol sulfate normally in her blood. When she gets pregnant, her blood levels of cholesterol sulfate steadily rise, and it also begins to accumulate in the villi in the placenta—which is where nutrients are transferred from the placenta to the baby. At the end of pregnancy the cholesterol sulfate in the villi rises to levels of about 24 units!

    Colostrum also contains high levels of sulfur, even more than the breast milk itself. So clearly, nature seeks to provide the baby with plenty of both sulfur and cholesterol at the time of birth. Interestingly enough, when a mother has high serum cholesterol, the baby's levels are typically low. Why?

    Dr. Seneff explains:

    "[Because] it can't get through. The mother has high serum cholesterol I think because she has low serum cholesterol sulfate. I think the two go together. The way to bring down your LDL in a healthy way is to get sunlight exposure on your skin. Your skin will produce cholesterol sulfate, which will then flow freely to the blood—not packaged up inside LDL—and therefore your liver doesn't have to make so much LDL. So the LDL goes down.

    In fact... there is a complete inverse relationship between sunlight and cardiovascular disease – the more sunlight, the less cardiovascular disease."

    Now, when a baby is born of a mother who has high cholesterol and low cholesterol sulfate, the baby's cholesterol will be low, but will also have fatty deposits in its arteries...despite the fact that fatty deposits are supposed to be associated with high cholesterol.

    "The deposits are there, I think, to start this cholesterol sulfate program that's replacing the one that isn't happening..." Dr. Senneff explains. "Children who have adequate cholesterol sulfate delivered from their mother do not have fatty deposits... It's bizarre, but the high cholesterol associated with fatty deposits in the adult (that's causing heart disease) is a solution, not a cause."

    This is a complete turnaround in thinking compared to the conventional paradigm! Furthermore:
    "The worst thing you can do is to clobber the LDL... because you're going to end up with heart failure," Dr. Seneff says..

    Dietary Sources of Sulfur

    Sulfur is derived almost exclusively from dietary protein, such as fish and high-quality (organic and/or grass-fed/pastured) beef and poultry. Meat and fish are considered "complete" as they contain all the sulfur-containing amino acids you need to produce new protein. Needless to say, those who abstain from animal protein are placing themselves at far greater risk of sulfur deficiency.

    Coconut oil and olive oil also contain sulfur (and are ideal sources of healthful saturated fats too). Other dietary sources that contain small amounts of sulfur If the food was grown in soil that contains adequate amounts of sulfur, include Organic pasteurized eggs, Legumes, Garlic, Onions, Brussels Sprouts, Asparagus, Kale, and wheat germ.

    Any diet high in grains and processed foods is likely to be deficient in sulfur, because once whole foods are processed, sulfur is lost. Additionally, soils around the world are becoming increasingly sulfur-depleted, resulting in less sulfur-rich foods overall. Hard water also tends to contain more sulfur than soft water, which, according to Dr. Seneff, may be why people who drink soft water are at greater risk of developing heart disease.

    In addition to making sure you're getting high amounts of sulfur-rich foods in your diet, Dr. Seneff recommends soaking your body in magnesium sulfate (Epsom salt) baths to compensate and counteract sulfur deficiency. She uses about ¼ cup in a tub of water, twice a week. It's particularly useful if you have joint problems or arthritis.

    One more very important note: when sunbathing including the use of tanning beds, you need to wait for 24 to 48 hour before taking a bath or shower as the water and scrubbing (especially the arms and legs) will wash the vitamin D down the drain. It takes up to 48 hours for the body to absorb the sunshine vitamin and complete its conversion into the sulfated form (1).

    Ozone would end the drama of contaminated fresh foods

    Conrad LeBeau
    Read my latest blog on the nationwide recall of Romaine lettuce due to e-coli contamination and how the use of ozonated water to wash raw vegetables would dis-infect them inexpensively and would protect the public health and safety. It would also make these wastefull recalls a rare event. Detailed home methods of dis-infecting fruits and vegetables using vinegar or hydrogen peroxide or grapefruit seed extract are also discussed. Read this eye opening article here.

    Update on my experiences with the use of Therapeutic Baths

    Conrad LeBeau
    In my first newsletter of this year, the Keep Hope Alive Journal vol 16 No 1, I reported on 15 specific benefits of using apple cider vinegar adn Epsom salts in my bath water daily for more than 2 months. The amount I used was 2 cups of apple cider vinegar and 1 cup of Epsom Salt. This was added to a bathtub full of warm water in the range of 100 to 105 degrees F. The benefits I reported in my last newsletter are the following:

    The benefits I observed for this 20-minute daily soak was-

    1. The tightness of the tendons and muscles in the knees immediately lessened and the soreness was reduced and usually disappears completely within the 20-minute duration of the soak.This is the content for Layout P Tag
    2. Less knee pain. Today, the pain the left knee is about 90 to 95% less than what it was 6 weeks ago, indicating the body is healing itself. I am able to do considerable walking now without a cane. Also pain in my right foot that may also be arthritis has gradually vanished over the past 6 weeks. 
    3. Weight loss - I have lost about one pound each week during the past 6 weeks. Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) has been long used to help burn body fat.
    4. Sweets Cravings has also been substantially reduced for which I credit the apple cider vinegar. Although not tested, blood sugar levels also likely declined as insulin sensitivity improves.
    5. Improved circulation in the feet. - I noticed the appearance of my feet has improved. The heels on my feet are no longer looking gray and dull but instead are slightly pink and youthful looking. The occasional sensation of burning or tingling in the feet is gone.
    6. Leg cramps go away. The painful cramps are often caused by either poor circulation or a deficiency of potassium or magnesium.
    7. Gout, caused by uric acid crystals also gradually lessened and disappeared.
    8. Cholesterol declines. After using the ACV/Epsom salt baths for 3 weeks, my labs showed normal cholesterol, low LDL and a HDL to total cholesterol ratio of 4.0 or less.
    9. Color added to my hair and the hair is thicker. Although not the original purpose of the ACV/mineral baths, my hair color has shifted from white/gray to a slightly darker color on my head and in other areas. Vinegar is known to dissolve mineral deposits.
    10. Systolic blood pressure has dropped 15 points or more at the end of the 20-minute soak. This effect has lasted for several hours.
    11. Sleep quality and duration has improved significantly. I now only wake up just once during my nightly sleep cycle instead of 2 or 3 times.  After waking up, I return to a deep restful sleep in about 30 to 60 minutes.
    12. Eyesight showed noticeable improvement after using the bath for 4 weeks. There are fewer eye floaters and less need for reading glasses.
    13. Psoriasis and athletes foot is gone. [Other skin conditions may also clear up when used in therapeutic bath water.]
    14. Sinus congestion abated and sense of smell has improved.
    15. Memory and brain function has improved. Names are easier to recall.

                I am now in week 11 and I want to add to the list of 15 benefits to include these additional observations:

    No 16. A significant improvement in digestive health and colon health. Stools are no longer narrow, broken in small pieces, or lumpy. There is no constipation, no diarrhea nor straining in bowel movements. No foul odors, no hemorrhoids, and no signs of yeast overgrowth or parasites either. The stools are simply healthy in appearance – They are smooth, brown, between 1 to 1.5 inches in diameter and 6 or more inches long, no curling, and there are no signs of inflammation period. Since the health of the gut is the foundation of both digestive health and immune system function, I can state with certainty that the apple cider vinegar baths are having a very beneficial systemic effect.


    No 17. Yeast overgrowth and parasites no longer observed. The Apple cider Vinegar (ACV) absorbed through the skin is believed to be driving out candida-albicans, yeast overgrowth, and parasites.in the intestines.

    No 18. The ACV detox baths support digestive, immune system, cardio, liver, pancreas, and kidney function.


    No 19. No more tired or fatigued leg symptoms.
                Most recently, April 8th,I decided to only use 2 cups of apple cider vinegar in the bath water and to stop adding the Epson Salts and the Borax. This is to test the effects of only using the ACV. I am convinced that the quality and duration of my sleep has improved significantly. Although I am 74 y.o. I currently wake up once during the night to visit the bathroom and then quickly return to sleep. Last night, a typical night, I slept 5 hours with no bad dreams and without interruption.
                There are so many benefits of adding ACV to bath water, that these baths should help a wide range of health including all of the following: lung function, smell and taste, hearing and brain function including both short and long term memory, cardio vascular issues, candida and yeast overgrowth, cancer, arthritis, rheumatism, carpal tunnel, bursitis, elevated blood sugar, all nerve related problems including neuropathy, multiple sclerosis, sarcoidosis, auto immune, hiv/aids, hepatitis, cmv, ebv and other viral infections including other un-named conditions.
                Finally, I am convinced that there are so many benefits from adding ACV in bath water on a daily basis that you cannot possibly obtain all of these same health benefits simply by adding a teaspoon of ACV to a glass of water and drinking it 3 times a day. That is my opinion, what is yours?

    Wanted- Case report stories from persons adding either ACV or hydrogen peroxide to their bath water

                Note: for the hydrogen peroxide baths, add 3 quarts or 6 pints of 3% H2O2 to the bath water and soak for 20 minutes. This may be alternated once every other day with the ACV baths. Every one doing therapeutic baths should consult with their physician for more information and for monitoring results. Send your experience to keephopealive by email.

    Case Report: Vitamin E (at 400 i.u. twice a day) partially reverses Emphysema

      Milwaukee, WI A local person (I’ll call him Jim to protect his identity) who is collecting Social Security reported was told by his doctor last year that there was nothing he could do to reverse the effects of the Emphysema he had. While he had the benefit of a portable oxygen concentrator, he found himself severely winded when he walked more than one city block or walked up a flight of stairs.
    About 2 months ago, a friend suggested he take 400 i.u of natural vitamin E daily.
                According to the Canadian Shute-brother doctors, vitamin E can increase oxygen availability to the heart and cells. These early pioneers in the use of vitamin E recommended vitamin E in daily doses of 200 to 1000 i.u daily for cardiovascular conditions including angina pain and also emphysema.
                After taking 400 i.u daily for a month, “Jim” reported an improvement in his breathing, although it was not back to normal. He then increased the dose to 400 i.u twice a day and the improvement was more pronounced. He states he now knows that the vitamin E at this dosage level is helping his breathing significantly and estimates that his recovery time to catch his breath after exertion has improved by at least 50%. He also says he no has panic attacks from an inability to catch his breath.
                A local nutritional advisor also suggested he eat a few red beets daily as this is a source of trimethylglycine (TMG) that breaks down into dimethyl glycine (DMG). DMG also will increase the oxygen carrying power of his blood. DMG is available as a dietary supplement but is also available as a food source from red beets. Suggestion: 2 or 3 pickled red beets consumed daily may also help.
                Note: In their experience, the Shute brothers reported in their book that a few of their patients had an increase in blood pressure from taking high doses (over 400 i.u. daily) of vitamin E. It is possible that these few cases might have been due to other factors such as stress or increased sodium intake as the primary cause of the increase in hypertension. It would be advisable to monitor blood pressure if taking 400 i.u or more of vitamin E on a daily basis.

    My Story - Arthritis, Apple Cider Vinegar and Bath water

    Joint Inflammation is less with therapeutic baths

    Conrad LeBeau
    In November, 2017, I developed a pain in my left knee. The knee cap and the inside became slightly swollen and painful. I soon found myself limping. It was severe enough I purchased a cane to help get around. Until early January in 2018, I experimented with a number of home remedies including hydrogen peroxide, and also magnets, with limited success. While experimenting, I continued my searching. Dr David Brownstein listed the following causes of arthritis on his website-

    1. Bacteria and viruses
    2. Mycoplasma
    3. Sugar Consumption
    4. Milk and dairy
    5. Acidic foods (meat, eggs and dairy)
    6. Dehydration - lack of water
    7. Drugs used to treat Arthritis and joint inflammation.

    This list does not represent all of the causes of joint pain. An injury from an accident or damage to cartilage between the bones or a lack of hyaluronic acid or silica that absorbs water may also contribute to joint pain. Joint pain can have more than one cause at the same time.

    Gin, Raisins and Juniper Berries

    The first remedy I tried was to eat raisins soaked in Gin. The formula was discovered in an Internet search. To make it, I added one pint of Gin to a quart jar that was filled half full with yellow or golden raisins. Over a period of days, the raisins absorbed the Gin. Reports claim that relief from Arthritis occurs in 75% of the users over a 3 month period.

    The mechanism of how it might work is unknown, but may involve the medicinal effects of juniper berries used to flavor the Gin. The remedy that I used suggested eating about 10 of these Gin soaked raisins each day. "Today's Herbal Health" by Louise Tenny M.H. suggested the use of Juniper berries for removing uric acid crystals, for infections, and for increasing natural insulin in the blood by improving pancreatic function. Cherry juice has also been used to reduce uric acid crystals.

    Uric acid crystals are formed by the consumption of excessive amounts of meat, eggs and fish. They usually affect the toes but can also can affect the knees. An xray of my knee on Jan 9, 2018 was not conclusive except it showed no cartilage damage but hinted at impaired circulation and possible calcium spurs.

    A search of home remedies at earthclinic.com listed several other remedies. The most popular one was the oral use of apple cider vinegar. Others listed included cold pressed flaxseed oil - one tablespoon per day and eating one raw avocado each day. Diluted cider vinegar was also proposed for topical use on arthritis and sore joints.

    Since I don't like the strong taste of apple cider vinegar, I decided to add the cider vinegar to my bath water and let some of it be absorbed into my skin and joints for a systemic effect. The results, so far, have been very satisfactory. At least 90% of the pain and impaired mobility has been resolved in a satisfactory way over the past 6 weeks. The specifics of what I did and continue to do are the following:

    • I filled my bathtub with water to 2 inches below the overflow.
    • Using a candy thermometer, I adjusted the hot and cold water to get a temperature of between 103 to 105 degrees F.
    • I added 2 cups of apple cider vinegar to the bathtub water (I purchased a gallon of it at the local grocery store for less than $4.00)
    • Epsom Salt (Magnesium Sulfate) - 1 cup was added to the bath water. Epsom salt was obtained at a local drug store.
    • 1/4 cup of Borax (20 Mule Team) was also added to the bath water as a source of boron, a trace mineral that supports strong bones and ligaments. (Source - purchased from a local grocery store – marketed as a detergent booster)
    • I set a hand timer for 20 minutes and got into the tub and let the hot water with the apple cider vinegar, Epsom salts and Borax do its magic. Since the tub is too short to immerse my whole body, I allowed my legs to be completely covered and used a cup to pour some of the bath water over my chest and abdomen area.
    • At the end of 20 minutes I lathered with a bar soap and then finished with a short shower while the tub drained.
    • Once every 2 weeks, I also see a physical therapist who has provided very helpful stretching and exercise suggestions.

    The bath water treatment is done daily immediately after rising in the morning.

    The Immediate and long-term benefits of this 20 minute soak.

    1. The tightness in the knees is immediately less and the soreness is reduced and sometimes disappears completely within the 20 duration of the soak.

    2. Today, the pain the left knee is about 90% reduced over what it was 6 weeks ago, indicating the body is healing itself. I am able to do considerable walking now without a cane.

    3. I continue to take one tablespoon of cold pressed flax seed oil daily and also eat half or one whole raw avocado each day. Both remedies are highly recommended (at earthclinic.com) for their anti-inflammatory effects in treating joint inflammation.

    4. The physical therapist has been surprised at the degree and speed of my recovery. I was born in August of 1943 which makes my 74 y.o. As you get older, recovery from any injury takes longer than when you are young.

    5. Weight loss - I have lost about one pound each week during the past 6 weeks. Apple Cider Vinegar(ACV) has been long used to help burn body fat. Cravings for sweets has also reduced substantially.

    6. Improved circulation in the feet. - I noticed the appearance of my feet has improved. The skin of my heels are no longer looking dull but instead are slightly pink and the sensations of burning or tingling are gone.

    7. My latest labs showed normal cholesterol, low LDL and a HDL to total cholesterol ratio of 4.0 or less.

    Although not the original purpose of the ACV/mineral baths, my hair color has shifted from white/gray to a slightly darker color on my head and in other areas. Vinegar is known to dissolve mineral deposits. It is possible that ACV may gradually help reverse atherosclerosis by reducing calcium deposits in the artery walls.

    National news reports in the past week are that the Rapid Flu Test has a high failure rate and several children given the test were told they did not have the flu. They went home only to die days later from the current seasonal flu. The test is unreliable and if a child has the symptoms of the flu, the child must receive medical attention. If not hospitalized, appropriate home remedies should shorten the duration of the flu. The following article is reprinted, shortened and updated from the 2008 edition of the Journal of Immunity.

    Feb 2 Update -Healing Baths

    Conrad LeBeau
    This Feb report is on therapeutic baths. I have a personal interest in this subject as last year in November, I developed a persistent pain in my left knee. While I am getting physical therapy instructions once a week, I have found that adding either Apple cider vinegar or Epsom Salts to bath water for a 20 minute soak once a day has been very beneficial. In this weeks blog, I discuss the details of my own experiences.

    In researching the subject of healing baths at earthclinic.com, I came across a very interesting article on healing baths written by the editors of earthclinic.com. They discuss using a wide variety of therapeutic baths including the use of –

    Apple Cider Vinegar – an amazing remedy for multiple purposes.
    Epsom Salt (Magnesium Sulfate)
    Borax - a detergent booster that contains boron in a natural mineral form.
    Hydrogen Peroxide – to oxygenate the blood – kill infections systemically.
    Oatmeal bath – for itchy skin conditions
    Activated Charcoal – to pull poisons out of the body
    Herbal baths- for multiple purposes
    Baking Soda – to alkalize the body

    Jan 17th Update

    Security issues resolved for Keep Hope Alives website - the Jan 13 false missile alert for Hawaii - my recollection of the missiles of October in 1962 when President John Kennedy was in the White House.

    Conrad LeBeau

    In December 2017, we became aware of various search engine messages to Internet browsers using Safari or Internet Explorer that keephopealive.org Home page at https://keephopealive.org was not secure and a reader could lose personal information and data. Out of over 270 files on our website dating back to 1994, we never had a real security issue for persons using the only page available on our website -  https://keephopealive.org/dkhaads.html  since that was the only page on our vast website that accepted PayPal or credit card information for ordering books and spiritual artifacts including the San Damiano water.

    All orders have always been processed by PayPal through encrypted transmissions. No purchase or donation was ever at risk for the hacking of credit card information. In addition to this, we had purchased a Security Certificate for the past several years through GoDaddy, the Internet server for Keep Hope Alive.

    My latest blog discusses the false text message in Hawaii on Jan 13, 2018 that missiles from North Korea were on the way and that this was not a test. I recalled my own experiences when President John Kennedy was in the White House in Oct 1962 as the threat of nuclear war with the Soviet Union loomed over missiles setup in Cuba that were aimed at the United States. The world was in a tense state for 72 hours as the countdown to a nuclear confrontation ticked away. I also discuss my reasons for changing the name of our Journal of Immunity to the Keep Hope Alive Journal. Read the rest of this report on my Wordpress blog.

    Garlic and The Singers Remedy

    Case Report #1

    Conrad LeBeau
    The following formula was told to me recently by Jeff, a Milwaukee resident, who sets up music and entertainment equipment for events in the Milwaukee area. He called it the Singers Remedy for a hoarse throat. He said it works every time.

    The formula is to take 6 cloves (toes) of raw garlic that are peeled and place them in a pot with about 2 or 3 cups of water. Bring it to a boil and cover the pot – reduce heat and simmer for about 20 to 30 minutes. Remove from heat and.... Read the rest of the article here and post your comments on our blog.

    New blog - Is Raw Garlic the Missing Part of the AIDS Cure Puzzle?

    Conrad LeBeau
    This week I have set up a new blog for posting articles using Wordpress. This blog is easier to read and allows for reader comments or questions to be posted at the end. I suggest you bookmark the new link to the blog for future reference.

    Go to my new Wordpress Blog to read this weeks entire article. Wordpress allows you to leave a message or post a comment at the end of each article. Also, a link at the end of the article will take you back to this page so you can explore and navigate the rest of this website.

    After my computer crashed in September, the folks at Dreamweaver would not let me transfer my old CS3 version of Dreamweaver to the new computer without spending a lot of money on the latest version. I don't like being cornered by big corporations including Adobe, so I am returning to using Wordpress, a free software program for designing websites that I had used briefly several years ago.

    I had to purchase a one year license to use Dreamweaver so I could access several files already set up in the Dreamweaver software. For now, two different styles of web pages will appear until I am able to make the complete transition to using Wordpress. Thanks for your patience.


    Nov 17 Update - How to use Kratom - the herb that reduces pain, depression and opiate addiction

    Kratom is grown and imported from southeast Asia. It is a natural pain reliever and is being increasingly used by heroin and cocaine addicts to help them break their addictions. It may also help with alcohol addiction. There are several strains of this herb. An online article explains how to use Kratom although the article does not state that heroin and fentanyl addicts can safely use it to overcome their addiction. If they did, the FDA and DEA gestapo would move in to seize the herbs and remove them from the market. The FDA and DEA actions are protecting the market monopolies of the pharmaceutical Corps. who manufacture narcotics and opiates that are directly contributing to the national health crisis that is taking 175 lives every day.

    Conflicts of interest: A Congressional investigation into the link between FDA managers and supervisors and the drug companies that manufacture narcotics is long overdue. At a death rate of 175 victims per day (64,000 per year) from FDA narcotics as well as those smuggled into the US from Mexico, remedial action is overdue. It is obvious that the FDA and the DEA are working for financial benefit of the drug companies and against the public's best interest. To read more about Kratom and to locate sources to buy online, go to kratomguides.com The DEA has already tried to stop the importation of Kratom into the United States.

    Six states have made distribution of Kratom illegal according to some search engine web sites. These include my home state of Wisconsin and adjoining Illinois, but not Michigan or Minnesota where Kratom sales are legal. If you live in one of the states where sales of Kratom are illegal, you may not be able to purchase the herb online. You may have to travel to an adjoining state to obtain some for personal use. Although Kratom is an anti-depressant, it is not addictive and not one single death has been reported from its responsible use.

    How the DEA could legally classify white sugar and table salt as Class 1 substances making them illegal without a prescription

    Under the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) definition of an opiate, white sugar, corn syrup, and table salt could be all classified along with cocaine and heroin as a class 1 substance as these substances have no medical value and are addictive. While the American Medical Assn. has asked the FDA to regulate salt in food claiming nearly 500,000 deaths per year from excess salt consumption, the number of people developing diabetes, obesity and heart disease from white sugar and refined carbohydrates exceeds even that of table salt consumption. I could not think of a faster way to get a revolution started in the streets than to take away the most common addictive substances known to man - sodium chloride (table salt) and sugar.

    The states that have made Kratom illegal are depriving their own residents of a herb that is a highly effective against pain, and is an antidepressant as well. There is no evidence that any person has ever died from using Kratom, but there is evidence that pain killers and other drugs approved by the FDA are directly responsible for over 100,000 deaths per year. Politicians and attorneys who side with the FDA and the big drug companies are rewarding major political campaign contributors and all of them have blood on hands. These are fighting words, and they should be fighting words, as government officials that harm people need to called to publicly explain their actions and their bad behavior. Their failure of leadership needs to be investigated and not sugar coated. Corrupt government officials and those with conflicts of interest need to be terminated and replaced with competent and honest public servants.

    It has been written that while Nero fiddled, Rome burned. Today, politicians have inherited a mess with the national opioid epidemic that is claiming 175 lives every day. If the politicians along with the FDA, and the DEA continue to listen to the same people who created this mess for personal profit and to please political donors, the bodies will continue to stack up.

    FDA protects Big Pharma's marketing monopolies by nixing Kratom

    Note: You can read the FDA's latest post on Kratom here dated Nov 14, 2017. In this post the FDA stated that some Kratom products have been laced with hydrocodone. Another problem is that the alleged deaths they report have been associated with smoking Kratom to get high. That is not a responsible use for this valuable herb. See kratomguides.com for how to use this herb safely and responsibly by making a herbal tea or taking a capsule. These guidelines warn against smoking the herb or buying them from a head shop where they may be contaminated with dangerous FDA approved narcotics or street drugs.

    FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb offers the carrot of FDA approval and says no one has come forward to file an application for FDA approval of Kratom. He knows that Kratom like all other natural remedies are not patentable and the one billion dollar price tag for FDA approval of commercial speech for Kratom's therapeutic uses (including that of any other dietary supplement) are not a recoverable investment.

    The FDA has never approved a single herb or plant based remedy in their entire history of approving drugs. They began recording such approvals in 1938 and you can find all of them in a publication called the "Orange Book." What you will not find in the Orange book are any plant based non-patentable natural remedies, not a one. To claim that the FDA drug application process is a remedy with a viable path to government approval for a natural remedy is a plain lie and is outright dishonest.

    Nov 3 Update - Pres.Trump Declares a National Health Emergency

    Conrad LeBeau
    On Oct 26, President Trump declared a national health emergency due to the growing Opioid epidemic and a death toll from drug overdoses of heroin, fentanyl and other narcotics reaching over 175 per day or 64,000 per year. Every American knows one of more people who have died from either prescribed narcotics like Oxycontin or illegal heroin or synthetic fentanyl* smuggled into the United States from Mexico. Thousands of deaths have been reported from drug dealers on the street who spike heroin with fentanyl.

    *The original fentanyl was approved by the FDA on Sept 25, 2006. It was sold under the brand name Fentora. It was manufactured by Cephalon Inc and was used mainly for cancer patients that did not respond well to other opioids. See drugs.com An overdose of fentanyl can cause breathing to stop and lead to death. Most deaths today are caused by synthetic fentanyl analogs smuggled into the United States from China. As little as 2 mg can kill an adult person.

    The President directed all federal agencies to prioritize resources to fight the epidemic. The Presidential Memorandum stated (in part):

    Section 1. Policy. It shall be the policy of the United States to use all lawful means to combat the drug demand and opioid crisis currently afflicting our country. Individuals, families, and communities across the United States continue to be devastated by an unprecedented epidemic of drug abuse and overdose, including of prescription opioids, heroin, and illicit synthetic opioids. Last year, we lost at least 64,000 of our fellow Americans to drug overdose, primarily from opioids. This is an increase of approximately 12,000 people over the year before and more than ever recorded in United States history. Drug overdoses now kill more Americans than motor vehicle crashes or gun-related incidents, and more than 300,000 Americans have died of an opioid overdose since 2000....

    Three factors are driving the opioid aspect of this crisis in particular. First, since the 1990s, there has been a dramatic rise in opioid pain medication prescriptions. Second, heroin from Mexico has flooded the country. Third, the illicit manufacture and illegal importation of fentanyl -- an extremely deadly synthetic opioid -- and its analogues and related compounds have proliferated. Fentanyl is currently manufactured almost exclusively in China, and it is either shipped into the United States or smuggled across the southern border by drug traffickers.

    Between 2013 and 2016, the amount of fentanyl seized by Customs and Border Protection at the border increased more than 200 times over. Dealers are increasingly lacing fentanyl into other drugs and pressing it into counterfeit opioid pills. Because fentanyl is lethal in even miniscule doses, this is an extremely deadly tactic, as it too often causes users to ingest a fatal amount unknowingly.

    Sec. 2. Agency Action. The Secretary of Health and Human Services shall, consistent with section 319 of the Public Health Service Act, 42 U.S.C. 247d, consider declaring that the drug demand and opioid crisis described in section 1 of this memorandum constitutes a Public Health Emergency. Additionally, the heads of executive departments and agencies, as appropriate and consistent with law, shall exercise all appropriate emergency authorities, as well as other relevant authorities, to reduce the number of deaths and minimize the devastation the drug demand and opioid crisis inflicts upon American communities.

    Trump - we need to develop non-addictive pain killers.

    In side remarks to reporters at the White House, Trump discussed the need to develop pain killers that are not addictive. The White House may not be aware that over the past several decades, many non-addictive pain killers derived from natural plant sources have been suppressed and removed from the market place by the Food and Drug Adm. because they were not approved through the drug approval process (NDA) and were not patented. If the definition of drug was modified to exclude natural and non-patented pain relievers, then it would immediately open the market place to dozens of new low cost non-addictive pain relieving remedies as viable alternatives to prescription narcotics. The drug company lobbyists will certainly oppose this.

    CNN reported on Kratom - a herbal remedy for pain relief

    Nadia Kounang and Aria Hangyu Chen of CNN recently reported that Kratom is a herbal remedy that is increasingly being used to stop heroin addiction and to also be an effective pain killer. CNN reports on Kratom:

    "Kratom is an opioid-like substance sought out by users to boost energy and manage pain. It's long been considered a supplement, loosely regulated by the Food and Drug Administration. In August, the Drug Enforcement Administration outlined plans to move it to the controlled substances list. However, after a public outcry, including letters from members of the House of Representatives and the Senate, the DEA withdrew its intent make it Schedule 1. Instead, it opened a pubic comment period to react to possible scheduling. The public comment period closes at 11:59 p.m. December 1.

    "Schedule I drugs are considered to have "no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse." Drugs considered Schedule I include LSD, marijuana, heroin and ecstasy. But what do we know about kratom? Native to Southeast Asia, the kratom tree's leaves have been used for centuries as an herbal drug by laborers and farmers. Today, kratom leaves are ground into pills and powders, and sold as a dietary supplement. It can be found in head shops and online. It's even made into drinks in some bars.

    "When taken at low dosages, kratom can act like a stimulant, heightening alertness. At higher doses, kratom is a sedative, producing opioid-like effects that dull pain. It has this effect because mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine -- the active ingredients in kratom -- bind to the opioid receptors in our body, said Dr. Ed Boyer, a professor of emergency medicine at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, who has done a handful of studies on the substance. It's about as potent as morphine, Boyer said, and "dulls pain very well. ..."

    Gina Tron writes on an internet blog that Kratom Tea is the beverage of Recovering Heroin Addicts. She starts her blog with this statement:

    Kratom is a plant-based legal drug commonly ingested in the form of hot tea. Often used to aid recovering heroin addicts, kratom is gaining popularity at bars in North Carolina and Florida. Even though it's been around for some time, the media is calling kratom a "new legal drug." A tree native to Thailand, kratom leaves are harvested and dried to create the drug, which was banned there in 1943, after people had started to use it as an opium alternative and the government realized it wasn't being taxed.

    She goes on to share her experiences drinking Kratom tea at a bar called Kat 5 Kava. Kratom tea mellows people out, reduces anxiety and stress, and is a natural pain reliever. You can read her entire article at vice.com Kratom tea can be found online at many sources. Head shops and some health food stores carry it, even Walmart stocks Kratom.

    The public must be informed and let their elected leaders know that they not only want the right to have unrestricted access to medicinal hemp but also Kratom and all other natural plant based remedies for pain and disease. The FDA, FTC and DEA need to butt out and let people have access not only to these natural products, but no restrictions on the labeling their intended use as a natural medicine and analgesic. Freedom of the press and freedom of choice in medicine demands nothing less. To paraphrase Ronald Reagan: "inalienable rights come from God, not from government."

    Oct 24 Update

    Federal Trade Commission (FTC) loses against Prevagen

    On Sept 28, 2017, U.S. District Judge Louis Stanton of the Southern Dist. of New York ruled for the defendants, Quincy Biosciences, a holding company for Prevagen Inc, a Wisconsin based corp. Prevagen Inc., does business as Sugar River Supplements, the manufacturer of Prevagen. The case brought by the FTC and New York's Attorney General Eric Schneiderman was dismissed on grounds related to part of the controlled study that supported the health claims for persons with mild memory impairment. The Constitutional issue of restraint of commercial speech was not addressed in the decision.

    Prevagen is a dietary supplement that contains a protein (apoaequorin) derived from jellyfish and marketed nationally on television to improve short term memory in an aging population. "Prevagen - the name to remember" is repeated in every ad for the supplement. The plaintiffs, FTC and N. Y. AG, claimed the ads were false and misleading. However Judge Stanton found that the plaintiffs failed to provide facts to support their arguments.

    While the clinical trial with Prevagen could not find a statistical improvement in persons with advanced memory loss or dementia, it did show an improvement in an aging populations with normal to mild memory loss. The court's decision also dismissed the case against Prevagens co-founder's - Mark Underwood and Michael Beaman. The 13 page decision can be read at 17Civ124 LLS.

    Sept 25, 2017 Special Report

    Amish Farmer Samuel Girod jailed for marketing herbal formulas.

    Conrad LeBeau
    On June 30 2017, Federal Judge Danny Reeves from the Eastern District of Kentucky sentenced an Amish farmer to six years in prison for making and selling herbal health products with health claims not preapproved by the FDA. Girod defended himself pro se in the case of US V Girod (5:15-cr-00087) and claimed that his products were herbal supplements and not drugs.

    Samuel Girod's Constitutional right to freedom of speech and press were violated by the Dept of Justice (DOJ), the Food and Drug Adm (FDA) and Judge Reeves. The First amendment violatons were based on commercial speech he used in the labeling of his health products. The DOJ/FDA classification of his products as “drugs” was not based on the composition of the substances in his formulas but solely on what he said (his speech) expressed in the labels and promotional literature.

    Girod’s “intended use” for his products is opinion; his opinion is speech that is supposed to be protected under the First Amendment and not requiring preapproval from the government. Under the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA), herbs, vitamins and mineral supplements are classified as foods per their composition. Girod’s products were not drugs but food-based herbal supplements based on their composition.

    Under the FDCA (21 USC Sec 301 et seq), the FDA/DOJ and the courts have unfortunately misinterpreted the definition of “drug.” since 1906. A review of the Congressional Record of 1906 indicates the first legal definition of drug was intended to inform the public of the presence of narcotics and opiates (cocaine, heroin) in the labeling of patented medicines, and drugs. This over-reach of the law defining “drug” was never intended to include food, water, dietary and herbal supplements.

    This over-reach of authority was done to please political donors from Wall St – big drug companies with deep pockets, who want the laws and regulations of the federal government to favor their medical monopolies and eliminate competition from low cost natural remedies. Amish farmer Samuel Girod’s “intended use” as expressed in the labeling of his products was “commercial speech.”

    Girod never intended his speech to convert his products into drugs or controlled substance like cocaine. In the case of Central Hudson 447 US 562, (1980) J. Powell writing for the majority stated:

    “In applying the First Amendment to this area, we have rejected the highly paternalistic view that government has complete power to suppress or regulate commercial speech.”

    J. Blackmun concurring with the majority in the same case wrote:

    ”If the First Amendment guarantee means anything, it means that, absent clear and present danger, government has no power to restrict expression because of the effect its message is likely to have on the public”

    Unlike many FDA approved drugs, there is no cottage industry of lawyers today suing dietary supplement companies because of the adverse effects of herbal remedies. Unlike the many patented drugs and narcotics (FDA approved) that contribute to the death of over 100,000 people each year, no one died or claimed an injury from using Girod’s herbal remedies.

    You can help this Amish farmer by going to change.org to sign and petition to President Trump to free Sam Girod from prison.

    Sept 15 Update

    Health Care Reform Gridlock

    Tennessee Republican Sen. Lamar Alexander, chairman of the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, is trying to form a bipartisan consensus on health care and make it more affordable. However, the clock is ticking for a simple majority to pass such a bill. Under the Senate's parliamentary rules, the simple majority rule ends on Sept 30 this month.

    It is highly unlikely that a consensus bill will be passed within the next 15 days. After Sept 30 the Senate rules will require 60 votes to pass any health care reform legislation. This will mean that only a bipartisan consensus will accomplish any thing of importance to the American people.

    The wrong headed focus on health insurance premiums does not deal with the primary issue - the high cost of patented drugs, market exclusivity patents, and the lack of choice in the market place from low cost traditional natural food based remedies. The use of government regulations to create market monopolies for big drug companies is the result of a direct attack on freedom of speech and press under FDC policy and regulations.

    They have made low cost natural medicine illegal by requiring government pre-approval of speech about the health benefits of food based remedies for preventing or mitigating illness, and may I add at a cost of over one billion dollars per health claim. Thus, thousands of natural remedies have been withheld from the American people not for their protection but to reward major Wall St political donors with continuing market monopolies. Regulations by FDA and FTC control freaks that require a hefty price for government approved speech bluntly violates the First Amendment.

    Consider this email message I received a few days ago from
    U.S. Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson who wrote -

    Dear Conrad, Thank you for contacting me regarding health care reform. Obamacare has left our health care system in need of repair. In Wisconsin, premiums and deductibles have doubled or even tripled for individuals, and insurance carriers continue to leave the individual market. We need to repair this damage. But I don’t believe we should try to replace one dysfunctional “comprehensive” Washington-written plan with another. My priority is a bill that will stabilize the individual marketplace, will keep costs from skyrocketing further, and will repeal the market distortions that Obamacare created. We need to transition to a system that actually works – one that incorporates free-market reforms and patient-centered care, one that turns over more decision-making authority to individuals and states. This process is not going to be simple. Obamacare has been in place for several years, and it will take time to repair the damage. I am committed to representing Wisconsinites’ concerns – which is why I’am grateful for the input I hear at forums around the state, including my telephone town halls.

    As chairman of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, I am using my Committee to gather information on the root causes of soaring health care costs and to continue discussing potential solutions. As long as my colleagues work with me in good faith, we can move America toward better access to affordable and quality health care. Thank you again for contacting my office. It is very helpful to hear the views of the constituents I serve. Please see my website at www.ronjohnson.senate.gov for additional information. It is an honor representing you and all the people of Wisconsin.

    Sincerely, Ron Johnson United States Senator

     

    My Reply to Senator Johnson email is the following-

    Dear Senator Ron Johnson,
    The dysfunction in our health care system did not start with Obamacare. It started over 100 years ago when Congress created the Food and Drug Administration and defined a "drug" for the first time in 1906 as substances intended for the prevention or treatment of disease. The original definition passed in June of 1906 sought to define "drug" to protect the public from opiates and narcotics including cocaine and heroin. The definition was never intended to cover every substance under the sun include spices, herbs, fruit, vegetables and water under the drug definition. However, lawyers for big drug companies who marketed patented drugs invested in the federal courts to expand the definition of drug to include all low cost natural remedies. These mostly plant based remedies competed in the market place with patented drugs. For the most part, natural non-patented remedies were very low cost, and had few if any side effects.

    It took hundreds of millions of dollars in donations to politicians who along with lobbyists rewrote the laws to create a market monopoly for the big drug companies where competition in the marketplace no longer exists between natural remedies and patented drug holders. Distributors of natural remedies are barred under the current FDC Act from stating in the labeling of their products an intended use to prevent or mitigate a disease. The First Amendment rights of distributors of natural remedies are denied under the continuous threat of civil or criminal litigation. I know as I have personally been a victim of this over reach of federal powers under the Obama Adm.

    I am not asking for any favors - only justice and a fair and balanced marketing field for all manufacturers of natural remedies. I have attached the 2 page 3 part proposal again and ask that you again review it, as your comments suggest you did not read the proposed changes to the definition of "new drug" and "drug" or understand why this is absolutely necessary to lower the cost of drugs and and make available to the public low cost natural remedies. I would also like you to set up a meeting between us so I can explain and make my case to you in person for the proposals I wrote.

    I would also like to testify before the Senate Committee in Washington DC chaired by Sen Lamar Alexander that is considering drafting Health Care legislation, or I would like to address the entire U.S. Senate on this topic, if it is possible for you to arrange this. Thank you for your attention to this important matter. Conrad LeBeau. 414-231-9817

    Pain and Love
    Our Lady's Message to the world

    "Dear children, who could speak to you about the love and the pain of my Son better than I? I lived with Him; I suffered with Him. Living the earthly life I felt pain because I was a mother. My Son loved the thoughts and the works of the Heavenly Father, the true God. And, as He said to me, He came to redeem you. I hid my pain through love, but you, my children, you have numerous questions. You do not comprehend pain. You do not comprehend that through the love of God you need to accept pain and endure it. Every human being will experience it to a lesser or greater measure. But with peace in the soul and in a state of grace, hope exists; this is my Son, God, born of God. His words are the seed of eternal life. Sown in good souls they bring numerous fruits. My Son bore the pain because He took your sins upon Himself. Therefore, you, my children, apostles of my love, you who suffer, know that your pain will become light and glory. My children, while you are enduring pain, while you are suffering, Heaven enters in you and you give a piece of Heaven and much hope to all those around you. Thank you. " 09/02/2017

    Congressman Trey Gowdy Asks a Question About Weed and Accidentally Exposes Tyrannical Drug War

    Posted on August 10, 2017 at Natural Health News

    (This article contains excerpts from Natural Blaze....Also, you can read the entire article with links to the Congressional hearings here. )

    By Matt Agorist
    During a meeting with the ONDCP, a Republican congressman asked a question that set off a conversation exposing the tyrannical nature of the drug war. The Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) met with members of Congress this week to discuss multiple issues when a Republican congressman asked a question that would expose the state’s immoral and tyrannical war on drugs in an accidental stroke of logic. Harold Watson “Trey” Gowdy III is a member of the Tea Party movement and the Republican Party and serves as a congressman from South Carolina. He is also the chairman of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

    During the meeting with the ONDCP this week, Gowdy asked why marijuana was a schedule I drug. Schedule I “drugs, substances, or chemicals are defined as drugs with no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse,” the DEA claims. Given the mountains of evidence showing the beneficial nature of the cannabis plant, the DEA’s claims are nothing short of asinine and tyrannical. However, marijuana continues to be categorized as such, paving the way for the police state to lay waste to rights and fill prisons for profit.

    When Gowdy asks Richard Baum, the acting director of Trump’s ONDCP, why marijuana is a schedule one, Baum immediately skirts the question. He then digresses into support for big pharma’s version of synthetic marijuana by saying that the FDA-approved versions of marijuana components can help people.

    While Gowdy didn’t go so far as to call for the legalization of cannabis — because it would likely mean political suicide among his staunchly conservative base — his line of questioning set off a conversation that would eventually expose the war on drugs. Cannabis has never killed anyone — ever. That being said, however, cocaine and meth kill thousands every year. Yet, as Baum concedes, the DEA considers them safer than this amazing plant.

    When Gowdy brings this up, Baum is unable to respond and uncomfortably squirms in his chair — likely knowing the real reason marijuana remains a schedule one drug. Gowdy then turns over the floor to Gerald Connolly, who continued the accidental exposé of the American drug war. “We’ve put people in jail…It’s had huge consequences based on little to no scientific evidence,” said congressman Gerald Connolly, who bluntly hit the nail on the head. The reality of the war on drugs is that it is not based on scientific evidence. Instead, it is based on a dark history of oppression, racism, and political corruption.

    In spite of some form of cannabis being legal in some fashion in 29 states and Washington D.C., the government still violently and with extreme prejudice continues to seek out those who dare possess it. If the CDC calculated the number of deaths inflicted by police while enforcing marijuana laws, that number would certainly be shocking and could even be deemed a risk to public health. Marijuana is, indeed, dangerous, but only because of what can happen to you if the police catch you with it.

    Nothing highlights the hypocrisy, immorality, and sheer idiocy of the drug war quite like marijuana prohibition. Here we have a medicine that kills cancer cells, saves the lives of countless epileptic children, heals broken bones, relieves pain, treats PTSD, is not dangerous, and exhibits a variety of other incredible benefits – yet the state will kill you over it. So why do these tyrants keep it illegal? If you want to know who profits from ruining lives and throwing marijuana users in cages, we need only look at who bribes (also known as lobbies) the politicians to keep the war on drugs alive. Below is a list of the top five industries who need you locked in a cage for possessing a plant in order to ensure their job security.

    1. Police Unions: Coming in as the number one contributor to politicians for their votes to lock you in a cage for a plant are the police themselves. They risk taking massive pay cuts and losing all their expensive militarized toys without the war on drugs.

    2. Private Prison Corporations: No surprise here. The corporatist prison lobby is constantly pushing for stricter laws to keep their stream of tax dollars flowing.

    3. Alcohol and Beer Companies: These giant corporations hate competition, so why not pay millions to keep a cheaper and far safer alcohol alternative off the market?

    4. Pharmaceutical Corporations: The hypocrisy of marijuana remaining a Schedule 1 drug, “No Medical Use Whatsoever,” seems criminal when considering that pharmaceutical companies reproduce a chemical version of THC and can market and sell it as such. Ever hear of Marinol? Big pharma simply uses the force of the state to legislate out their competition; that happens to be nature.

    5. Prison Guard Unions: The prison guard unions are another group, so scared of losing their jobs, that they would rather see thousands of non-violent and morally innocent people thrown into cages than look for another job. What does it say about a society who’s resolute in enacting violence against their fellow human so they can have a job to go to in the morning? The person who wants to ingest a substance for medical or recreational reasons is not the criminal. However, the person that would kidnap, cage, or kill someone because they have a different lifestyle, is a villain on many fronts.

    The good news is that the drug war’s days are numbered. Evidence of this is everywhere. States are defying the federal government and refusing to lock people in cages for marijuana. A record number of law enforcement personnel are even quitting their jobs and joining the push to end the drug war.

    Colorado and Washington served as a catalyst in a seemingly exponential awakening to the government’s immoral war. Following suit were Oregon, D.C., and Alaska, and now Maine, Massachusetts, and Nevada. Medical marijuana initiatives are becoming a constant part of legislative debates nationwide. We’ve even seen bills that would not only completely legalize marijuana but deregulate it entirely, like corn.

    Also, while the idea of treating an addict with compassion instead of violence is a radical notion in this country, in other countries, such as Portugal, its effects have been realized for more than a decade. In 2001, the Portuguese government decriminalized all drugs. 14 years later, drug use, crime, and overdoses have drastically declined in Portugal exposing the cruel reality of prohibition. Eventually, more states will adopt this approach, and the drug war tyrants will finally be outnumbered.

    As more and more states refuse to kidnap and cage marijuana users, the drug war will continue to implode. We must be resilient in this fight. If doing drugs bothers you, don’t do drugs. When you transition from holding an opinion — to using government violence to enforce your personal preference, you become the bad guy. Please, for all that is good, don’t be the bad guy.

    "Mary from Brooklyn" update - HIV negative status holds 10 months after stopping all treatments

    July 19th, 2017
    Conrad LeBeau
    After several weeks and no contact, I began to doubt if I would hear from "Mary" again, then on July 19th the phone rang. It was my first converstion with her since Feb 2017. I found out the lab test that she was suppose to have in May had been delayed until July 17th.

    She told that her most recent lab test had very good news. The results - breathtaking. The PCR test for HIV was still negative but that her CD4 count had dropped slightly to 480. The CD4/CD8 ratio also declined to 2.37 although this high a ratio is unheard of in AIDS cases. I asked her if she also had the HIV finger prick blood test for HIV antibodies (elisa /western blot). She said she had that done in May and it was negative.

    Background: She had been first diagnosed with HIV by her physician in Jan 2015. In March 2015, she was prescribed HIV meds. By May, she integrated the use of black seed, Vitamin D and other dietary factors, along with a lot of prayers with her prescribed meds. In May of 2016, she went to a private testing center and had the finger prick test for HIV. The tester who remembered her found that she no longer tested positive for the virus and stated at the time "this is impossible."

    On Oct 1 2016, she discontinued all treatments for HIV, including both prescribed drugs and her own home remedies. Her HIV negative status in May, 2017 and now a non detectable viral load as measured by PCR on July 17th 2017, increases the possibility that this is the real deal - possibly even accure. A comprehensive discussion and timeline of the background of this case can be found in Vol 15 No 1 of the Journal of Immunity.

    To date, no one on our email list has tried to exactly duplicate the same protocol that "Mary"* used. *Mary is not her real name and it is used for privacy reasons

    Zimbabwe -A report on Blackseed and home remedies for HIV

    Nyasha Dhliwayo July 30 (2 days ago) to me

    I just collected my results ..cd4 is 243 up from 163. My viral load is 462 from 2200. I'm now taking vitamin D i.u 10,000 each day. Its been exactly 8 and a half months since I started on black seed herb. I'm so excited about the development. My next test should be in October.

    I'm more than happy for you to publish my results. I am a lady aged 52 years and I am from Zimbabwe Africa. I tested positive in September 2014 and I weigh 103kg - I'm tall. I have never taken Arvs. Before black seed herb I was taking an imported herb but due to financial problems I stopped. It cost $120/month yet black seed costs $25 for a months supply. I started taking black seed in November 2016. I take 3T twice per day. I crush the black seed and drink with water and honey or plain water. Since then my life has changed for the better. I'm not on any special diet.

    However, everyday I take about 3T raw honey with raw Propolis. I also take 2T twice per day raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar. But all these supplements I just started taking around May 2017. Before I just took normal diet and black seed herb. Every morning before brushing my teeth I drink 1 Litre hot water with 6 or more slices fresh lemon in it. I drink lots of warm water during the day. Once in a while I chew 4 dandelion leaves. In my first conversation with you I indicated that urine tests revealed some significant amount of protein and my Dr was worried but after introducing apple cider vinegar into my diet my urine is so clear according to my latest results. Both My kidney and lever are functioning perfectly well. My Dr is in a shock and has stopped pushing me for Arvs. However, all this was so possible with a lot of prayer.

    Please also note that Nyasha is not my real name so its OK. But one day should you require correct identity not for publication I will certainly supply. You can send an email to Nyasha here

    July 17 Health Care Plan

    Our Latest Revised 7 Part Proposals

    Conrad LeBeau
    We have made several proposals to reform Obamacare and Trumpcare since Jan of this year. Our goal has been to get some good legislation passed. This has been an uphill fight. Our goals include all the following - 1. To reduce the regulatory scheme of the federal government to those limited powers enumerated in Art 1, sec 8 of the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. 2. To allow low cost, safe and effective natural remedies, those derived from nature - to be legally distributed in interstate commerce. 3. To allow distributors of drugs, health foods, dietary supplements and all other health remedies to state the intended use of their products and to share both scientific research and testimonials - rights that are suppose to be protected under the First Amendment without first being required to get permission from the FDA.

    The 7 part proposals listed here will accomplish all that and reduce health care costs by hundreds of billions of dollars annually. Specific changes in the FDC Act are proposed. One is to create a domestic Medical Peace Corp to diagnose and treat people with pre-existing condition using low cost natural remedies. Insurance premiums will drop precipitously. Persons with pre-existing conditions or no insurance will find low cost health care available locally without buying any insurance at all. Fees will be based on a sliding scale like the VA currently uses.

    If you agree with these foundational reforms, use the link to print out the pdf files, sign them and send them to your United States Senators and representatives, and to organizations that can and should help in this fight for real health care reform, freedom of choice in medicine, and justice for all. Read the two page 7 part proposal by clicking here and to print.

    Here is a list of the 19 U.S. Senators who have been working on the Health Care bill. You can click on the link to their website and leave a message with them or direct them to this website or to the 2 page file with the 7 part proposals. Better, call them to discuss these proposals with staff. You can also find the website, phone number and email address of your U.S. Senators here.

    Send a Fax

    One of the fastest and most effective ways to influence your U.S. Senator is to send them a fax. Click here for the fax numbers of all U.S. Senators. This site offers 5 free faxes but also wants to sell a fax service - but if you click on the name of each senator- the fax number shows up and you can copy it down and use it to send a longer letter or file.

    I found that letters mailed to U.S. Senators take 3 weeks before they receive them as each letter has to be opened and checked for anthrax. ISIS has done a number on the U.S. mail to Congress and the White House in Washington DC. The use of a fax and a direct phone call are the fastest and best lobbying options available for the general public.

    Another effective way is to schedule a meeting with a local staff member for a U.S. Senator or Congressman and discuss the Health Care proposals.

    Thank you and God Bless. Conrad LeBeau

    July 7th - Join the effort and write to your U.S. Senator and Congressman with this message to bring real competition in the marketplace, provide freedom of choice in medicine, the right to distribute traditional plant based natural remedies without the imposition of the financial blockade on the First Amendment imposed by the FDA. Read both letters here and here. Make copies and pass them on to your elected leaders, at town hall meetings and to your neighbors and friends. Ask them to make these proposals part of any new Health Care Act passed by Congress. Thank you for standing up for free enterprise, the U.S Constitution and the First Amendment. We must end a legal system that favors the super rich at the expense of the rest of us. Conrad LeBeau

    July 4th Message 2017

    Read the latest Journal of Immunity Vol 15 No 2 online now. Dr. Alfred Plechner DVM presents over 50 years of clinical research and experience successfully treating autoimmune diseases, cancer and MS and many other similar chronic conditions by reducing total estrogen levels to normal reference ranges. Working with Dr. Richard Pooley, Plechner cites 3 recent cases that were resolved successfully - two had carcinomas and tumors and one had thyroiditis. Natural aromatose inhibitors can lower total estrogen levels. Research is presented on the use of passion flower, chrysin, red wine, green and black tea, flaxseed and resveratrol to normalize estrogen levels. FDA Warning letters ignores scientific research on the use of natural remedies for cancer. "Mary from Brooklyn Update" raises more questions than answers. A medical hypothesis on a link between sunlight, dendritic cells and a potent immune response to HIV. Two case reports on the use of Aloe Vera gel for reversing tooth decay. Enjoy!

    June 5th Report

    THE GLOBAL BURDEN OF DISEASE PROJECT: THE EPIDEMIC OF CHRONIC DISEASE IN AMERICA IS GETTING WORSE

    [This is reprinted from an article by Dr Peters from 11/15/13. In view of the current national health care crisis that involves increased costs and diminishing results, this article offers insights relevant to the health care crisis of our times. Conrad LeBeau]

    Dr Ron Peters MD.

    Once again, Americans pay more and get less for healthcare pay-more-get-less-healthcare. The August 2013 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association reports on the Global Burden of Disease project, a massive international research program designed to describe the global distribution and causes of a wide array of major diseases, injuries, and health risk factors.

    The results show that infectious diseases, maternal and child illness, and malnutrition now cause fewer deaths and less illness than they did twenty years ago. As a result, fewer children are dying every year, but more young and middle-aged adults are dying and suffering from chronic diseases such as cancer and heart disease, which have become the primary causes of death and disability in America and worldwide.

    Since 1970, men and women worldwide have gained slightly more than ten years of life expectancy overall, but they spend more years suffering with chronic illness and disability. For the first time, the JAMA report compares the state of health in the US to that of 34 countries on measures of diseases, injuries, and risk factors, providing computations of years of life lost to premature mortality (YLLs), years lived with disability (YLDs), and disability-adjusted life years (DALYs). A healthy life expectancy (HALE) measurement was computed by taking into account not only length of life but also levels of ill health at different ages.

    The epidemic of chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, arthritis, and Alzheimer’s disease, has continued to spread around the world. And, in the United States, where we spend much more than most countries on “health” care the results are worse than many other countries with similar economic strength.

    While some of this is due to the aging of our population, much more is due to the unhealthy lifestyles, standard American diet, and environmental toxic exposures that constitute the American way of life today. Also, importantly, doctors in America are more focused on giving symptomatic drug therapies than counseling patients to change their lifestyle and mind style in order to reverse chronic illness.

    The report comparing the health of countries around the world and showed United States rankings relative to other countries worsened for: The death rate fell from 18th to 27th , in other words, fewer people in most European countries, Japan, Qatar, Slovenia, Chile, Costa Rica, and New Zealand die each year per 1000 than Americans, while we spend three times more on health care.

    The years of life lost to premature death fell from 23rd to 28th The years lived with disability worsened from 5th to 6th Life expectancy at birth fell from 20th to 27th The healthy life expectancy fell from 14th to 26th The report concludes with the following statement: “…morbidity and chronic disability now account for nearly half of the US health burden, and improvements in population health in the United States have not kept pace with advances in population health in other wealthy nations.”

    Furthermore: “The United States spends the most per capita on health care across all countries, lacks universal health coverage, and lags behind other high-income countries for life expectancy and many other health outcome measures.”

    The Global Disease collaborators concluded what most of us already know about the impact of diet on health: “The largest cluster of risk factors was the composition of diet (greater even than physical inactivity or high BMI), which was associated with 26% of deaths and 14% of DALYs…. The most important dietary risks in the United States are diets low in fruits, low in nuts and seeds, high in sodium, high in processed meats, low in vegetables, and high in trans fats….”

    They also concluded that, “the risks of diet composition, physical inactivity and low activity, and high BMI are highly intertwined.”

    WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CHRONIC DISEASE EPIDEMIC?

    The medical establishment responsibility: Doctors in our society are trained to treat disease and their main tools are drugs and surgery. For chronic diseases, the vast majority of medications are symptomatic, i.e. they reduce the symptoms associated with the illness, but they do not cure it. The word “healing” has been replaced by “disease management” and patients are seen recurrently in short office visits and given more and more expensive medications.

    Most doctors do not have the training or time to help patients change the lifestyle and mind style issues that created the disease, so they stay in the medical system, getting more and more treatments as the disease and side effects continue. Since the “disease care” system is profitable for doctors, hospitals and the pharmaceutical industry, it is slow to change until doctors are paid to provide “health care”, or health promotion. Perhaps the biggest example of expensive and symptomatic health care is bypass surgery, stents and angioplasty for coronary artery disease, the number one cause of death in our society.

    As Dr. Caldwell Esslystyn and Dr Dean Ornish have shown, a whole food plant based diet is the treatment of choice for ischemic disease as it reduces the atherosclerotic blockage as documented by coronary angiography. But Cardiologists are trained to do angiograms, stents and angioplasty and the hospital CEO would certainly prefer the income from a robust cardiac bypass and stent facility than a nutritionist educating patients in plant based nutrition.

    Patient responsibility: The majority of Americans prefer the high protein, high fat, high caloric, nutrient depleted Standard American Diet (SAD), which, according to the Global Disease researchers, is the single biggest factor contributing to the chronic disease epidemic. The majority of Americans are sedentary and overweight and they are living in the Age of Stress, where worry, frustration, and anxiety have become normal.

    Society’s responsibility: The pharmaceutical industry spends billions of dollars perpetuating the myth to doctors and patients alike that drugs heal, while the food industry peddles high fat and high sugar foods that are quick and convenient.

    The news (media) conveys these messages to the public to maintain their advertising income, while food and drug lobbyists pay our politicians to support corporate economic goals.

    THE SOLUTION FOR THE CHRONIC DISEASE EPIDEMIC

    Integrative, or functional, medicine, returns the responsibility for chronic disease back to the patient by providing education and guidance in healthy diet, exercise, stress reduction and proper nutrient supplementation. The purpose of disease is to get your attention so you can change and reverse the disease. The best treatment for disease is the promotion of health. Integrative, or functional medicine, provides the tools to evaluate and restore health to the many systems that comprise the wondrous biological symphony of your body.

    Digestion, assimilation, immunity, cardiac function, sex hormones, thyroid, adrenal, detoxification, neurotransmitters and much more all work together: you cannot isolate one from the other. Also, as inconvenient as it may be, the body is governed by consciousness (both conscious and unconscious) and to reverse chronic and serious disease you must heed the “message of illness” and consider the dysfunctional beliefs and emotional issues that are expressed within the fabric of your body as dis-ease. Or, more simply stated, you need to understand the impact of stress.

    Consciousness is difficult to fully define, but for simplicity, it is combination of the way we think and the way we feel our emotions (or don’t feel them). Mindbody research has shown that digestion, blood circulation, immune activity, hormone levels are but a few of the systems controlled by the mind. It has been that way for as long as we have lived on earth. ______________________

    May 25 Update

    FDA, Under New Leadership, Seeks More Comments on Rules Affecting Off-Label Communications

    From fdalawblog.net-
    May 18 2017 by Anne k Walsh
    Dr. Scott Gottlieb was sworn in as FDA’s 23rd Commissioner on May 11, 2017. There has been a lot of speculation about what policies he will prioritize for the Agency during his tenure. A review of his background shows he has been an advocate for autonomy in the practice of medicine and the use of medical products for off-label uses. He has opined that doctors are appropriately trained to make medical decisions based on the best interest of their patients.

    Dr. Gottlieb is well-versed on the controversies surrounding FDA’s current restrictions on drug and device manufacturers from discussing off-label uses with health care practitioners. Given his expertise, he may be poised to loosen FDA’s enforcement of off‑label communications and to provide clarity to industry on these issues. Perhaps it is telling that one of the first actions the Agency has undertaken since his confirmation was to further extend the time period for reviewing the rules defining “intended use.” As reported here, FDA derives authority to regulate a product based on its intended use.

    Although FDA first proposed changes to the “intended use” rules back in 2015, it was not until after the 2016 election but before the inauguration, that FDA issued its final rule. It is not uncommon for a former administration to fast-forward pending rules before the political climate shifts; nor is it uncommon for a new administration to stay the most-recently implemented rules until it has time to consider them. In the case of the “intended use” rules, FDA issued the final rule on January 9, 2017, with a stated effective date of March 21, 2017. The proposed version of the rule was markedly different from the January 9 version because it permits FDA to look at the “totality of the evidence” in determining a manufacturer’s intended use for its drug or device.

    Pharmaceutical groups filed a Citizen Petition requesting reconsideration of the language, and FDA without the benefit of a confirmed Commissioner, agreed to delay the effective date of the rule for a year. FDA solicited comments on the decision to postpone the effective date, as well as on its regulation of product distribution in light of First Amendment considerations. The 60-day comment period was expected to end on May 19, 2017. Yet on May 18, 2017, without substantive explanation, FDA further extended the comment period until July 18, 2017.

    According to the Federal Register notice, FDA “has received a request for a 30-day extension and another request for a 90-day extension of the comment period . . . . The requests conveyed concern that the current 60-day comment period does not allow sufficient time to develop a meaningful or thoughtful response to issues FDA raised in the Final Rule Extension.” The 90-day extension request was submitted on April 5, 2017, by the same group that filed the Citizen Petition leading up to the initial comment period: the Medical Information Working Group, the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America, and the Biotechnology Innovation Organization.

    We were unable to find in the docket the request FDA referenced that sought a 30-day extension. It is unclear why FDA felt compelled to honor requests for more time in this case. The additional time could signal that the new Commissioner seeks to weigh in before FDA takes further action related to these rules affecting off-label communications. We will continue to monitor these developments closely.

    "I was diagnosed HIV positive in october 03 2016. My viral load was 120,0000 and My cd4 was 145. I don't know how and when I got the virus. My last test was 2 years ago. I use Triumeq* 1 per day. I also take Honey and Black seed cumin 2 spoons per day and vitamin D2 50000 once per week. On My second visit with the doctor I was in 4200 viral load...and the 3. Viral load around 40 And I started to believe in all the help that keephopealive offers. I was dying but now I really feel like a normal person. My cd4 is really high today with no more Sickness or complications. I am positive for about 2 Years, and I keep hope alive for the 3rd year and hope to say I am Cured I also use honey From Mexico and stem cells From Argentina. Good Bless You. Alex. "

    FDA warning letters ignore scientific research on the efficacy of natural remedies for cancer

    Conrad LeBeau

    On April 25, 2017. From FDA's website is this statement -

    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today posted warning letters addressed to 14 U.S.-based companies (alleging) that they are illegally selling more than 65 products that fraudulently claim to prevent, diagnose, treat or cure cancer. The products are marketed and sold without FDA prior approval, most commonly on websites and social media platforms. “Consumers should not use these or similar unproven products because they may be unsafe and could prevent a person from seeking an appropriate and potentially life-saving cancer diagnosis or treatment,” said Douglas W. Stearn, director of the Office of Enforcement and Import Operations in the FDA’s Office of Regulatory Affairs.

    With its record of not protecting the public from unsafe drugs, the FDA
    should look in the mirror before throwing stones at others

    When the FDA talks about safety, their press releases fail to mention the 1.2 million complaints about the adverse effects of FDA approved drugs that were filed by consumers in 2015(1); also, the 804,974 deaths from drugs and medical devices reported by the FDA since 2005(2), and the millions of Americans who used FDA approved chemotherapy for cancer in the last decade and died anyway.

    In 2017, the National Cancer Institute (3) estimates that 1,688,780 new cases of cancer will develop this year and over 600,000 will die. This in spite of the fact a majority of these patients will be treated with chemotherapy. The annual cancer rate continues to climb.

    2. The FDA Death Meter as reported by the Alliance for Natural Health.
    3. National Cancer Institute compiles cancer death statistics

    By its actions, the FDA shows it is more concerned about using its regulatory powers to protect the market monopolies of Wall St bankers and drug companies rather than the public. FDA's war against natural food based remedies, herbal and nutritional supplements has been ongoing for more than 70 years, and are part of an ongoing conspiracy to remove all natural health products from the marketplace.

    Searching the Scientific Databases

    A partial search of the scientific literature for 7 of the 65 products targeted by the FDA was made to determine if the FDA had a case against the distributors. If the FDA has a scientific basis to justify writing these 14 letters, the products selected for their effects on cancer would yield nothing in the computer searches. The searches done at the National Library of Medicine (PubMed) combined a product name with the word "cancer." The results of these searches speak for themselves and are as follows:

    1. Graviola - Search terms used at PubMed [Graviola cancer] without the brackets [ ] Results- 10 articles

    2. Asparagus -Search terms used at PubMed [Asparagus cancer] without the [ ] Results- 52 articles

    3. Garlic -Search terms used at PubMed [Garlic cancer] without the [ ] Results- 959 articles

    4. Lapacho -Search terms used at PubMed [Lapacho cancer] without the [ ] Results- 19 articles

    5. Chaga Mushroom -Search terms used at PubMed [Chaga Mushroom - cancer] Results- 18 articles

    6. Apricot seeds - natural source of Amygdalin - Terms used [apricot seeds cancer] Results - 211 articles

    7. Essiac Tea - search terms used [Essiac Tea cancer] Results - 48 articles

    The total number of articles retrieved in scientific publications for these 7 products is 1317 - that is One thousand, Three hundred and Seventeen abstracts - WOW! The search results indicate the basis for the FDA'a actions were based on definitions of "drug" and "new drug" and were not based on science. It is yet another example of the FDA's overeach of authority under the U.S. Constitution and the law.

    We have not read the contents of all these publications, but a quick glance of the many titles indicates support for the anti-cancer activity of these 7 products. You could say the FDA has some explaining to do. However, as long as the FDA substitutes legal posturing for science, public opinion will continue to be controlled by sound bites that are misleading.

    The First Amendment right of speech and press are being continuously and openly violated under color of law (FDCA). The intent of the lawmakers found in the Congressional Records of 1906 and 1994 both ignored or blind sided by the FDA, DOJ and too many Federal judges. My Petition for Certiorari to the U.S. Supreme Court lays out the case for illegal activity, the use of regulations and case law to suppress speech, and the broad over-reach of authority.

    Under the pretense that the FDA might approve speech about how a natural food substance may prevent or mitigate a disease, no NDA has ever been approved for a non-patentable food or other natural remedy in the entire history of the FDA approving new drug applications that started in 1938. The FDA has yet to explain why it has never approved for the prevention or treatment of disease any food, nutrient, vitamin, mineral, enzyme, probiotics, herb or any other non-patented natural substance. The FDA dismisses over one million studies at the National Library of Medicine (PubMed) on the health benefits of plant based remedies. The FDA bible of approved drug remedies are listed in the "Orange book" and are composed entirely of patented synthetic molecular compounds.

    The laws, regulations and court case laws of the past 100 years have created and sustained an exclusive marketing monopoly for the holders of patented drugs, composed of synthetic compounds. It is no coincidence that elected officials and federal employees in key regulatory agencies (the FDA and FTC) are selected by politicians who are bought off by Wall St bankers and big drug companies as payback for political contributions to key officials of the federal government. So it is this 5th day of May in the year 2017.

    April 25th - Two case reports on the use of Aloe Vera gel to heal tooth decay - an update

    Conrad LeBeau
    Last November 1st, 2016, I reported in this journal (v14n3) on the case of an elderly citizen in West Allis who had a tooth ache that came and went for the better part of 6 months. After trying every remedy imaginable, in August 2016, he went to see a local dentist who took x-rays and confirmed a small cavity in the tooth. A date was set for an extraction to be done in September.

    In the Journal of Immunity (v14n3), I reported the following -

    "He also tried a mouthful of aloe vera juice from a bottle and noticed some long-term relief lasting several hours. Being aware of the availability of large fresh aloe vera leaves in a local Mexican market, he decided to buy one and try a slice of the raw leaf and apply it to the tooth.

    About 3 weeks ago, he cut a piece of the Aloe leaf about 1 inch long and ½ an inch thick. He removed the spines and the green skin of the outer leaf and placed the piece of the aloe flesh directly over the troubled tooth. He chewed on it lightly and allowed the juice from the aloe leaf to soak into the tooth and surrounding area in the mouth. Within an hour, he noticed some relief and decided to drop all the other treatments and just use the aloe to see what its healing potential was.

    The fresh aloe vera was applied over the tooth twice day. Within one week, all the pain was completely gone. He would not longer have any sensitivity in the tooth or in the surrounding tissue near the tooth. Everything seemed back to normal. Even honey and fruit juice that had previously caused the pain in the tooth to return no longer bothered him."

    Guess What - 7 months later - April 17, 2017, the tooth of this elderly citizen continues to not bother him. You see, I am that senior citizen. Conrad

    A second person has reported success on the use of fresh raw aloe gel for an aching tooth.

    April 10, 2017 - An email from ASHLEY HEDGES

    "Conrad, I have had a toothache, on my lower left back molar, tooth #19, I believe for the last 2 months. Painful to say the least. Have tried everything to alleviate the pain, only thing that subdues it is ibuprofen, 400 mg, for about 5 1/2 hours, then back again. Tried curcumin, garlic, turpentine (8 drops), goldenseal tincture, colloidal silver, cloves oil, none works, till I tried fresh aloe inner leaf gel, just placing it on the tooth, then chewing and swallowing the gel. Twice per day, and from the very first day, seems to be HEALING, NO PAIN, ETC. Will keep it up."

    Note - I don't think this aloe remedy would work on a tooth that is substantially decayed, but one where the decay has been recent. You can contact Ashley at ashleyhedges1013@gmail.com (Name and email address are published with permission)

    April 5 Update Report

    In response to the latest Journal article on the 5 part protocol used by Mary from Brooklyn that appears at this juncture to have cleared the remaining HIV viruses from the lymph node reservoirs, a few people have called and asked where to obtain whole black seed (nigella sativa). The site used by Mary was kevala.net. The label they used described nigella sativa as "Organic Whole Black Cumin." The label also says it is "nigella sativa" the latin botanical name for the "Black Cumin" that they sell in one pound packages.

    It is important to note that while Nigella Sativa sometimes is sometimes referred to by the common name of Black Cumin, it is not the Cumin spice that is commonly found in grocery stores and used in Chile, Mexican, and Indian dishes. Regular cumin is brown not black and it has a different taste than Nigella sativa, which has a peppery taste. Nigella sativa is commonly grown in Saudi Arabia, Egypt, India and Turkey and has also been used as a flavoring in certain dishes. Historically, it is known for its medicinal value and has been referred to in prophetic literature more than 1000 years ago as the cure for all diseases. At that time, the seed was eaten whole usually with raw honey. There was no black seed oil or black seed powder a 1000 yrs ago. In using the whole seeds, it would have the purest and most uncorrupted therapeutic value.

    Two sources of whole black seed aka "Black Cumin" (nigella sativa) are kevala.net and amazingherbs.com. Kevala.net is located in Dallas Texas. Ph: 1-877-379-1179. Amazingherbs.com is located in Buford, GA. Ph: 1-770-982-4780 There are many other sources and you can google for them.

    We are very interested in hearing from anyone attempting to duplicate the protocol used by Mary from Brooklyn as a possible cure for HIV/AIDS. We think there are many combinations that could lead to the same goal - total viral eradication. My opinion is that persons who were recently infected (within the past year) have a greater chance of reaching a cure status with this 5 part protocol than those who have been in this battle for 20 or 30 years.

    History records that Thomas Edison tried 10,000 times before making his first light bulb. Ever since, the world has been brighter. A first cure for HIV may be historic but will not be remembered if it is the only one. It will take many thousands more of successful duplications before the champagne bottles can be uncorked. The mistake the medical establishment has made is to treat HIV as a viral infection and not as AIDS which is also a dysfunction of the immune system. When we learn how to tweak the optimum immune response, many more cures will follow.

    There are many immune response similarities between AIDs and cancer. Cures for cancer will happen more frequently when we learn how to heal, balance and restore proper immune responses.

    March 2nd 2017
    Updated info on a "possible cure" for HIV/AIDS

    "Mary from Brooklyn": Background of this case.

    This report is updated from Jan 2015 through February 2017 and contains some new details not previously known or published. It is about a female from NY. I will call her “Mary” not her real name. Although I had spoken to her several times starting in March 2015, here is what she told me on Sept 14, 2015.

    1. Jan 2015 –first exposed to HIV. Mary became infected in January 2015 after having had sex with her husband in an event that resulted in the breakage of a condom. Neither her or her husband know he was HIV+.

    2. February 2015, she tested positive on a standard HIV test for the virus. More testing found that her CD4 counts had dropped to around 340 while the CD8 count rose to 809. The CD4/CD8 ratio was 0.42. The viral load for HIV by PCR was 21000 in the February test.

    3. March, 2015, divorces her husband.

    4. Around March 11, Complera was prescribed. This was about 2 months after the original diagnosis of being HIV+, The ingredients in Complera, its benefits and side effects, can be found at complera.com. The website states that Complera is not a cure for AIDS. However, Mary’s protocol involved more than using Complera.

    5. Black seed Powder. On March 19, she used a coffee grinder to grind 4 teaspoons of whole black seeds into a powder that she mixed with water and took this twice a day with meals for one month - then she reduced the dosage to two teaspoons twice a day. Her source of the whole black seeds was kevala.net. She stopped using the black seed by December of 2015.

    Note: She told me in Feb. 2017 that she ground the whole black seed and mixed them with water and drank them immediately. She did not use black seed powder in capsules and she did not use black seed oil.

    6. Raw beet juice. She also blended 2 whole raw beets with a quart of water and made a smoothie. She drank ½ cup of the raw beet juice smoothie each day beginning in March of 2015. By Dec of 2015, she reduced her intake of raw beet juice.

    7. Raw garlic. She ate 2 cloves of raw garlic 3 times a day with meals. She sliced them and placed on whole grain bread, crackers or on a salad. By Dec of 2015, she reduced her intake of raw garlic.

    8. Basic diet – lots of raw vegetables, some fish and chicken daily, but ate red meat and cheese only once a month.

    9. Prayed for a Cure – she said she recited about 50 prayers each day. Results: About 9 weeks later at the end of May, she had new lab results and they were – CD4 counts 560. PCR viral load for HIV now undetectable. The CD8 dropped to 383 and the CD4/CD8 ratio returned to a normal reference range at 1.46.

    At the time, neither Mary nor her doctor realized the immunological significance of the CD4/CD8 ratio returning to a normal range. In June after reading about the importance of vitamin D at Keep Hope Alive, she asked her doctor to test her vitamin D levels. He did and they were low. He then prescribed 50,000 i.u. of vitamin D2 which she has taken once a week since the middle of June.

    On August 28, 2015, she had new lab results and they were – CD4 count 596. CD8 count was 310 and the CD4/CD8 ratio climbed to 1.92, yet, neither she nor her doctor understood the significance of these unprecedented lab results.

    By the end of December 2015, she had discontinued the daily use of black seed, and used raw garlic and beet juice only once or twice a week and not on a regular daily basis. However, she continued with the Complera, her basic diet and daily prayers. Her doctor told her several times that she would never be cured and would have to take HIV drugs for the rest of her life.

    Other Test Results and Analysis

    In reviewing what we published about her case in the past 2 years, it is possible she may already have flushed out the remaining HIV virions in the lymph node reservoirs by the end of August of 2015, about 5 months into her combination therapy. We will never know this as no HIV antibody test was done until May of 2016, which turned out negative with the finger prick test. A few months earlier, the saliva Oraquick test was negative, but we learned from sources that this test was not reliable once you had been infected.

    Now that she has been virus free and on no HIV meds since Oct 1, 2016 (17 weeks and counting), we ask this question: at what point is it reasonable to declare her "cured" of HIV/AIDS? One more important question - can her protocol be used by others and have the same results? More time and testing will answer both of these questions.

    FDA v. LeBeau - Petition Denied

    Today Feb 21, 2017 the U.S. Supreme Court denied my Petition for a Writ of Certiorari ending a 7 year legal odyssey. It took just two words: "Petition Denied" that was posted on my case earlier today. That effectively brings the case to an abrupt end. No appeal is allowed. As President Trump says at the end of many of his tweets "Sad!" There was no explanation offered nor is there ever.

    Every year, the Supreme Court receives about 7000 of these petitions and only accepts about 1% for judicial review. So the odds were clearly stacked (100 to 1) against my petition being reviewed regardless of its merits. Being that this case was based on the intent of the lawmakers, and not court case law. and not attorneys working for the Executive branch of government who craft policy, legal arguments, and law to please their political donors, it was an uphill battle all along.

    Every judge that touched this case in the past 7 years acted like it was the third rail of politics. They simply ignored my strongest arguments based on the Congressional Records of 1906 and 1994 that showed what real Congressional intent was. The courts are continuing to uphold the deviations and perversions of law decided by courts nearly 100 years ago and passed on as "legal precedent."

    The Supremes cherry pick their cases based on their personal preferences. They must have found the cherries in my case a bit tart. The only benefit I get from their denial of my petition is "closure." I can now pursue writing books that have awaited the outcome of this case. The rule of law and the pursuit of justice will await another day. Thank you all for following this case for the past several years. I will have more to say in my upcoming newsletter next month.

    Conrad LeBeau

    Feb 26 2017 Email from Dale Schmidt

    Conrad – my heart-felt acknowledgements.

    You led a valiant, unrelenting 7 year long fight, against great odds, with politically conflicted legal special interests -- who lead you through the well controlled, mind numbing and time consuming maze of illusionary due process litigation. They may have won the final decision – but you won in the court of public opinion. You demonstrated what one person can do to challenge a very elitist bureaucracy, well controlled by the shadow government of high-minded special interests … masquerading as caring entities.

    Though your undeterred, relentless efforts, you have forced many to expose their hypocrisies, providing voluminous insights as to how they lead one on, wear one down - mutually conspiring and hoping that you will exhaust your resources and give up before getting a fair impartial hearing … only to discover that in the final analysis, if it does not fit their bias matrix, it will never be heard. Knowing you, you have all the times, dates and cast of characters to write a real expose’.

    I have the Perfect Title: Rigged My 7 Year Relentless Struggle to get Justice in the US Court System

    You have taken a path less worn and opened the way. For that we all should be most thankful. Thank you and God Bless. Dale A. Schmidt President & CEO Synergy 3 Group Inc.

    Feb 28 From my nephew Scott LeBeau

    I am proud of you, Uncle Conrad. And while I was not surprised by the Court's decision, I take some measure of comfort in the fact that your fight highlights a basic truth: there are those among us who posses a frame of reference independent of the tiny cage that the American socio-political worldview has become. It is tiny because it is merely political and temporal in its ontology; it is a cage because it is parochial in both a geographical and metaphysical sense. The world now bears witness to the fruits of such a thing, which in a very real Feb 28 sense is but the latest metastasis of that thing most appropriately called Modernism that has been ravaging the West for several centuries. You stood up and fought your fight right where you found yourself, right where you were found. That is all any of us can ever do, and a great deal more than most of us have the courage to do. Very well done. Scott LeBeau J.D.

  • Breaking News - “Mary from Brooklyn” Update
    PCR test for HIV is non-detectable 17 weeks after
    discontinuing all HIV meds

    C. LeBeau.

    Feb.17, 2017. An African American female, 31 years old, and living in the New York city area stopped using her HIV meds on Oct 1, 2016* without telling her doctor. Seventeen weeks later, the most recent PCR test result has found no trace of the virus. All other lab test numbers are in normal ranges.

    *Note: The original date she intended to discontinue the HIV meds was planned for Aug 28 2016 as reported last year on this website. This was delayed to Oct 1 2016.

    After being on the HIV drug Complera for over one year, which she used along with Black Seed powder, and beet root juice, Mary from Brooklyn took the ultimate test to find out if she had really gotten rid of the remaining HIV viruses by stopping all HIV meds for 4 months and counting. The test which she had stated would start on Aug 28 actually started on Oct 1, 2016. On Feb. 8, 2017 lab test were taken at a local hospital. The results came in on Feb. 17th as follows:

    Vitamin D serum level – 69 ng/ml

    CD4/CD8 ration 2.5

    PCR test for HIV – none detected

    CD4 count 557

    CD8 count 223

    On June 14, 2016 we wrote: “Mary from Brooklyn” Update June 14, 2016
    A new development – HIV status converts from positive to negative.

    "We reported on the experiences of Mary from Brooklyn on this website on Feb. 1, 2016 and also with a detailed article in the September 2015 update. At the time we thought that her combination of the HIV drug Complera, along with Black Seed powder, beet juice and vitamin D had resulted in her CD4/CD8 ratio returning to a normal 1.46 reference range (normal is usually from 1.0 to about 2.0)."

    "May 2016 – Mary reports that a recent blood test for the Elisa - Western Blot is negative for antibodies to HIV. The test was not a repeat of the earlier saliva Oraquick that is unreliable for determining a person’s HIV status after they are infected. It was the finger prick test. The person who did the test remembered “Mary” and her earlier positive test result for HIV and said of the negative result “this is impossible.” Since he also has HIV, he retested himself to make sure the testing equipment was working properly; it was; he again tested positive on the Elisa/Western Blot."

    Issues associated with reporting a "Cure" for HIV/AIDS.

    There are several problems in reporting a "cure" for HIV/Aids. They are -

    1. The unpredictable nature of the virus. While 4 months and counting seems like Mary is home free, many previous declarations that a cure has been found in the past two decades including some on this website were proven over time to be premature. In Mary's case, if the HIV virus is hiding somewhere inside her, it is taking a long time to make its presence known.

    2. In Mary's case, her own doctor told her it was wishful thinking to believe that she could be cured and that she would need to take HIV meds for the rest of her life. What will be the expression on her doctor's face if she decides to tell him that she has not been taking the HIV meds for the past 4 months and counting? What if her HIV negative status goes on for 6, 9 or 12 more months or forever?

    3. The last challenge is simply this - can her protocol and the same results be duplicated by others who were recently diagnosed with HIV? Will the protocol also cure HIV/AIDs in long term survivors? Like everything else in life, time and testing will tell.

    In my phone call of last week, Mary told me she plans to set up an email address so members of the Keep Hope Alive email list can contact her directly. For now, she plans to keep her identity secret for privacy reasons. All the information that she has to offer will be published on this website and it will be freely available to one and all who may benefit from its use.

    Monitor your CD4/CD8 ratios closely.

    When you first start, if your PCR test results are negative, have an AIDS testing source do the finger prick test for elisa/western blot antibodies. If the results are negative, then wait until the CD4/CD8 ratios return to a normal reference range of 1 to 2.5, then retest for antibodies. When the HIV antibodies are gone and the CD4/CD8 ratio is normal again, you might be on the cusp of a cure or are already there. If you are using only herbal and natural remedies like black seed, the same diagnostics applies.

    While I am optimistic that the ideas discussed here will lead to an improved health status for many, whether more outright "cures" for AIDS will result is, God willing, something we will all find out together - tomorrow and beyond.

  • Feb 2nd Update

  • Mary from Brooklyn: This is an update from last year. In a phone call on Jan 23rd, I was told she had discontinued all prescribed meds and all other self help remedies including the black seed, and the high daily dose of vitamin D starting Oct 1, 2016. In Nov, about 6 weeks after discontinuing all treatments for HIV, she stated her viral load remained undetectable, p24 antigen negative and the finger prick test for HIV antibodies (elisa/western blot) also non-reactive. Her CD4's were at 820, CD8 at 342 and CD4/CD8 ratio at 2.4. We are awaiting to hear from Mary about a recent test to see if this HIV - status is maintained or if the virus has re-emerged from hiding. This test result is crucial in determining whether or not total viral eradication has or has not occurred. Future updates will be posted when available.

    HIgh blood levels of Vitamin D from Sunlight may be a critical component of a future cure for HIV/AIDS

    Conrad LeBeau
    Mike, an HIV seropositive male in his 50's who lives in southwestern Wisconsin has been on HIV drugs for over 20 years and has continuously remained HIV negative as measured by PCR. This fall he told me in an interview that he gained 20 pounds this past summer after he developed a nice sun-tan by spending 2 to 3 hours a day in a Pontoon boat and enjoying the outdoors at a nearby lake.

    I shared my theory with him that the added weight could be due to the increased vitamin D levels resulting from his exposure to outdoor sunshine. The resulting increase in vitamin D would have had a powerful anti-inflammatory effect - reducing both TNF and IL-6, and as a result improve his intestinal absorption of nutrients from his diet. I suggested he find out what his CD4/CD8 ratio was and if it had returned to a normal range, also, to have an HIV antibody test (elisa/western blot) to see if he still has any antibodies to the virus.

    IMPORTANT Update 2018. Note: Vitamin D3, a synthetic vitamin supplement pill has a different molecular structure than the vitamin D formed from sunlight and this pill has had no positive effects in reducing HIV viral loads in case reports or in controlled studies. See the V16 N2, N3 and N4 for 2018 for more details.

    "Dear children, you who are striving to offer every day of your life to my Son, you who are trying to live with Him, you who are praying and sacrificing - you are hope in this peaceless world. You are rays of the light of my Son, a living gospel, and you are my beloved apostles of love. My Son is with you. He is with those who think of Him - those who pray. But in the same way, He is patiently waiting for those who do not know Him. Therefore, you, apostles of my love, pray with the heart and with your works show the love of my Son. This is the only hope for you, and this is also the only way to eternal life. I, as a mother, I am here with you. Your prayers directed to me are the most beautiful roses of love for me. I cannot but be where I sense the scent of roses. There is hope. Thank you."

    Hemp Industries Association Files Petition Against DEA Marijuana Extract Rule Implementation

    Posted in FDA Law Blog: 24 Jan 2017 02:13 PM PST
    By Larry K. Houck & Riëtte van Laack –

    The Hemp Industries Association has filed a Petition for Review in the Ninth Circuit to block implementation of the Drug Enforcement Administration’s (“DEA’s”) recent final rule on Marijuana extracts. The DEA final rule designates non-psychoactive cannabinoids, including cannabidiol, as “marihuana extract” and adds all cannabinoids, including exempted portions of the Cannabis sativa L. plant, to schedule I of the federal Controlled Substances Act (“CSA”). See Establishment of a New Drug Code for Marihuana Extract, 81 Fed. Reg. 90,194. 90,196 (Dec. 14, 2016) (here).

    The petition seeks judicial review of DEA’s final rule creating a new drug code without following required CSA procedures or making findings required by the CSA to control substances. The petition claims that DEA’s rule creates a drug code for substances that are not controlled under the CSA; that the final rule “dictates that the mere presence of ‘cannabinoids,’ which are not controlled substances, is the determinative factor of whether a compound is a ‘marihuana extract.’”

    Petition at 2. It further claims that the final rule too broadly defines “marihuana extract” by including portions of the Cannabis sativa L. plant that are exempt from control under the CSA or exempt from being treated as controlled substances pursuant to the CSA and the Agricultural Act of 2014. Id. at 2-3.

    The CSA defines “marihuana” as “all parts of the plant Cannabis sativa L., whether growing or not; the seeds thereof; the resin extracted from any part of such plant; and every compound, manufacture, salt, derivative, mixture, or preparation of such plant, its seeds or resin” but excludes “the mature stalks of [the] plant, fiber produced from [the] stalks, oil or cake made from the seeds of [the] plant, any other compound, manufacture, salt, derivative, mixture, or preparation of [the] mature stalks (except the resin extracted therefrom), fiber, oil, or cake, or the sterilized seed[s] . . . incapable of germination.” 21 U.S.C. § 802(16). Yet, the DEA final rule on marijuana extracts appears to include all portions of the marijuana plant, including those specifically excluded by the CSA from the definition of marijuana.

    Petitioner, the Hemp Industries Association, successfully challenged DEA’s 2003 rulemaking that amended the regulation to include naturally occurring tetrahydrocannabinols (“THC”) within the definition of “synthetic THC” and, therefore, treat it as a schedule I substance, even though it falls outside the CSA definition of marijuana. Hemp Indus. Ass’n v. DEA, 357 F.3d 1012 (9th Cir. 2004) (here).

    The Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit concluded that DEA “cannot regulate naturally-occurring THC not contained within or derived from marijuana - i.e., non-psychoactive hemp products - because non-psychoactive hemp is not included in Schedule I.” Id. at 1018.

    The Court held that DEA’s broadening of the definition of THC to include naturally occurring THC “contravenes the unambiguously expressed intent of Congress in the CSA and cannot be upheld.” Id. The Court permanently enjoined DEA from enforcing the rules scheduling THC. Id. at 1019. However, the Court’s decision is limited to the Ninth Circuit. The Ninth Circuit decision can be read here.

    It will be interesting to follow this petition given how the marijuana/hemp/THC state regulatory landscape has changed considerably since 2004.

    Jan 20 update - President Trump issues a Regulatory Freeze

    Reince Priebus, Pres-elect Trump's chief of staff sent a letter to all Regulatory agencies freezing all new regulations written under the Administrative Procedures Act (APA) that are not yet finalized by publication in the Federal Register, until they are reviewed and approved by the White House. The Executive Order should block the DEA ruling that would have the effect of making non-psychoactive cannabinoids (CBD) an illegal Substance I drug under the DEA's bold overreach of executive power.

    ..non-alcoholic fatty liver disease in rats following chronic exposure to an ultra-low dose of Roundup herbicide

    Authors: Robin Mesnage, George Renney, Gilles-Eric Séralini, Malcolm Ward & Michael N. Antoniou Scientific Reports 7, Article number: 39328 (2017) doi:10.1038/srep39328 Download Citation Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease Proteomics Received: 22 July 2016 Accepted: 22 November 2016 Published online: 09 January 2017

    Monsanto's GMO corn and soybeans and Roundup herbicide have been found to produce fatty liver disease in rats at very low doses. With a global obesity epidemic and over 100 million Americans with obesity, type II diabetes, and metabolic syndrome, a majority of people also have non-alcoholic fatty liver disease or NAFLD. The majority of the populations is consuming meat from animals fed GM corn and soybeans. Both these grains contain the bt toxin that can cause holes to develop in the intestines and also the glyphosphates in Roundups week killer, a known cancer causing agent. The authors also found that Monsanto's Roundup promotes estrogen, a hormone that is linked clearly to abdominal fat, man boobs, and some forms of cancer like breast and ovarian. The article is long and should give the reader motivation to buy only organic meats, grass-fed, and organic grains, especially corn and soybeans, but also to have a diet with more non-gmo organic plant-based foods.

    Jan 5th 2016 Update

    New Issue of the Journal of Immunity V14 No 4

    Conrad LeBeau
    The latest issue of the Journal is dedicated to updated and new proposals to replace Obamacare with a health care system that staunchly defends freedom of choice in medicine with no limits to treatment options, although cost the insurance would pay is limited to what a conventional treatment alternative would be.. Your feedback to this newsletter and its proposals is important.

    Two new key proposals are to narrow the definition of drug to exclude water, food, dietary supplements and all other non-patentable substances. The second proposal is to require Insurance companies to pay for Experimental treatments without any mandates for government pre approval. Doctors and patients are thus empowered to make their own health care decisions including treatment choices and without interference from paternalistic federal employees from any branch of the government but especially the FDA and FTC. A summary of key points in these proposals is listed below.

    Key Elements of the Health Care Plan

    Health Care professionals would receive training in newly developed low cost protocols for treating all diseases. The program would be funded from payment for services from patients, general revenues of the Federal Government and the minting of Platinum coins if needed. Specifics:

    1. Redefine the legal definition of drug to exclude food, water, dietary supplements, and all other non-patentable products.

    2. Require Insurance policies to cover experimental treatments and non-patented health remedies at a cost no greater than the prescribed drug alternatives.

    3. Create public databases to follow the results of alternative and experimental remedies.

    4. Panels of experts in multiple alternative health categories to be set up. Priority in developing low cost treatment programs goes initially to the top disease killers - cancer, heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and non-narcotic pain relief.

    5. NIH to train all health-care professionals in the use of new low cost treatment modalities and protocols for all disease conditions.

    6. Military Medical Corpsmen would offer patient evaluation, counseling, prescriptions at VA Hospitals and at local hospitals as well through locally leased facilities in or near hospitals. This would provide for low cost health care for both Veterans and the uninsured public.

    7. Pre-existing conditions and the uninsured are covered.

    8. Pay according to ability to pay on a sliding scale similar to what the VA has done for several years.

    9. Veterans would have the choice of going to an existing VA hospital or a local treatment center that is also open to the public.

    While Medical Corpsmen have provided medical services to civilians in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and elsewhere, they can also offer the same services to the American people and at a fraction of today's costs.
